ASU guard Jason Braxton schools Jackson State center Kelly Ross during ASU’s 79-48 blow-out at Wells Fargo Arena Sunday afternoon.
This game was for real, and the ASU men's basketball team showed it.

Behind a team-high 24 points and seven boards from junior Ike Diogu, the Sun Devils (1-0) coasted to a decisive 79-48 victory over the Jackson State Tigers in ASU's regular season opener at Wells Fargo Arena.

The win, which was part of the first round of the Las Vegas Invitational, marked the 15th straight year ASU has opened the season with a win at home.

The junior All-American outside hitter had 20 kills and 11 digs as the Sun Devils (10-15, 5-11) fell in straight sets, 30-16, 30-25, 30-27 in front of 1,778 fans at Wells Fargo Arena.

Ben Bloomgren is tired of people trying to be politically correct about his disability. "I'm not 'visually impaired;' I'm blind," says Bloomgren while seated on his bed in his dorm room. "Just call a spade, a spade." Bloomgren, 22, is one of 42 students on ASU's main campus who are legally blind.
