M Hoops: Sun Devils finish strong again


Joe Rondone / THE STATE PRESS
ASU forward Serge Angounou gets hacked trying to dunk on Justin Barnett of the North Texas Mean Green at Wells Fargo Arena Wednesday.
Like a cat with its prey, the ASU men's basketball team came into Wednesday night's game against North Texas preferring to toy with its opponents before putting them out of their misery.

Over its first three games, ASU has played down to challengers early before blowing by them late. And Wednesday night's game was no different, as the Sun Devils allowed the Mean Green to stay close before going on a 13-0 late first-half run, giving ASU a comfortable lead for the rest of the 83-67 blowout.

High Marks


On the cover
A 15-page term paper looms over her head and a blank computer screen stares her in the face. After a week of this scenario, sociology senior Christine* decides to try a new approach to studying, something she's never done before: take a prescription pill to focus her concentration.

Her pill of choice is Adderall, a prescription central nervous system stimulant used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder and hyperactivity, disorders she does not have. In other words, Christine took an amphetamine to get her paper done. Christine swallows 5 mg of the drug -- half a pill -- around 5 p.m. on a Thursday evening at her parent's house. She says as she drives home a few hours later, the pill starts to kick in.
