Athletic director leaves for Ohio State

ASU Athletic Director Gene Smith formally announced Saturday he would leave his post at ASU to take the same job at Ohio State.

Smith, who has led the athletic department since 2000, will continue his duties at ASU until April 15, at which time he will become Ohio State's first black athletic director. ASU President Michael Crow wasted little time in announcing the University's desire to replace Smith with a top-tier candidate.

ASU, UA rivalry extends beyond athletics

An energetic pack of UA students painted each other's faces red and blue Saturday just before the ASU men's basketball game and cheered loudly as another group of Wildcat fans passed by.

After they had passed, Frank Camp, a UA media arts junior, noticed a gold shirt hanging toward the back of the crowd. "Ditch the ASU guy," he screamed. "Get him out of here."

Cronkite school dean finalists announced

Four finalists for dean of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication were announced Thursday, bringing the school one step closer to becoming its own college.

The Cronkite school is working to become an independent college, and the new dean would oversee the school's transition to independence and eventual move to ASU's Downtown Phoenix campus.

Sun Devil junior center Ike Diogu walks off the court with his head down after a loss to UA on Saturday.
The ASU men's basketball team has been the cardiac kids all season. Saturday night, it didn't survive the heart attack. ASU came up short against its neighbors to the south, falling to No. 11 UA 70-68 in front of 14,141 at Wells Fargo Arena.

For the third time in conference play and the second consecutive game, the Sun Devils were buried on the final possession. As has been the story in close games all year long, ASU gave up an offensive rebound that led to its disastrous fate.

ON THE COVER
Muscles rippling, Holly Dison contorts her body and grips a sketchy pocket on the wall with her fingers.

She wraps her right leg around the back of her left, delicately balancing on a sliver of rock the size of a baby carrot. Her lithe body is completely taut as she grabs a good-sized slab and holds on tight. Finally, she drops onto the padded ground with a soft thud and announces she is starting to feel warmed up.

Review: 'Robots' a hi-tech failure

Big names don't necessarily make a big blockbuster. "Robots" is the newest "children's cartoon that is fun for adults," due in theaters Friday.

Besides a few funny moments from Robin Williams (which were all revealed in the trailers), "Robots" is the usual storyline that has been seen a hundred times. Director Chris Wedge offers a lot of big names -- including Williams, Halle Berry and Ewan McGregor -- but that's about it.
