FULLERTON, Calif. -- Cal State Fullerton had every reason to head into its NCAA baseball Super Regionals matchup against ASU brimming with confidence. After all, this was the same Sun Devil squad that the Titans had knocked out of the postseason each of the previous two seasons.

Some undergraduates to pay graduate tuition

ASU postponed a 25 percent tuition increase last week for undergraduate students who have completed at least 155 credit hours.

Beginning in fall 2006, these students will pay graduate tuition for undergraduate courses.

FULLERTON, Calif. - After playing in its most emotionally exhausting series to date against Cal State Fullerton over the weekend, the No. 17 ASU baseball team now must set its sights upon national No. 3 seed Nebraska for the first game of the College World Series.

The Sun Devils will face off against the Cornhuskers (53-13) on Friday, either at 11 a.m. or 4 p.m. The other two teams in ASU's bracket are Florida and Tennessee.

Urquidez shines at Super Regional

FULLERTON, Calif. -- Fresh off a 7 and 2/3 inning performance while tossing 109 pitches less than two days earlier, ASU's Jason Urquidez walked on the mound in the bottom of the fifth inning to face a potent Cal State Fullerton offense that had lit up the No. 17 Sun Devils for seven runs early on Sunday.

Urquidez faced junior Trevor Mortensen, and the result was similar to his previous outing less than 48 hours earlier: strikeout.

In Their Own Words: Guilt Trip

Here, the children walk down a dusty street on a grassy hill in the township.
When I first arrived in Stellenbosch, South Africa, in fall 2004, it was hard to convince myself that I actually was in Africa. The quiet town seemed to be made up almost entirely of university students and South African wine farmers.

The buildings in Stellenbosch are mostly milk white and blanketed with black, thatched roofs. The streets are lined with oak trees, reportedly brought by founder Simon van der Stel in the late 1600s. A river meanders through the expensive tourist shops, ethnic restaurants and classic, Dutch-style buildings of the University of Stellenbosch.

Local artist Long on depth

The roots run deep and dark along most of the canvas, the beautiful buds barely peeking out toward the top third of the painting from beneath the depths, mirroring the artist.

There is a lot more to Steve Long than his innocent good looks reveal. Long, 41, of Chandler, was inspired by art at an early age.
