Wooden will transfer to Wichita State

After a lackluster sophomore season in which he spent more time on the bench than on the court, ASU sophomore center Keith Wooden has decided to transfer to Wichita State.

Wooden, who played at Free State High School in Lawrence, Kan., will sit out next season, as mandated by the NCAA. He'll play for Wichita State as a senior in the 2006-07 season.

ON THE COVER
Experiencing withdrawals, going to group meetings and confronting demons. Rehab isn't exactly what the college-aged population dreams about, but it often becomes a necessity, whether enrolling is a personal decision or a court order.

This week, SPM talks to people who were forced to join rehab by the courts and whose lives have been irretrievably altered because of substance abuse.

In your own back yard: A reclaimed passion

Knit or die. That's the hard-core motto of the knitting circle that meets at Tempe's Three Roots Cafe, where Spanish and education junior Robbie Klasky learned and became hooked on knitting.

Klasky is one of a growing number of students who have picked up knitting as a hobby. Just look around campus -- the clinking of needles often mixes with the ring of cell phones and cash registers.
