When the teams met last month at Maples Pavilion, ASU (15-6, 4-5 Pac-10) pulled out an 81-69 victory. Junior forward Ike Diogu dominated on both ends of the floor, posting 28 points and 15 rebounds.

ON THE COVER
With her veiled hair, modest clothing, and olive skin, pre-business junior Rema Nasaredden knows a thing or two about stereotyping.

Nasaredden says she was helping the Muslim Students Association at an informational table during the presidential debate when "this total right-wing Christian straight out of Texas walks up. He starts telling us how great it is that the U.S. is in Iraq and how what they are doing there is beautiful," she says.

The bands became officially mainstream last May when famous bicyclist and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong teamed with Nike to make a wristband solely to benefit cancer research. It is yellow and says, "Livestrong."
