Ira A. Fulton speaks at the renaming ceremony of the ASU Foundation Building Tuesday morning. The building will be named in honor of Fulton, the University's largest contributor.

Ira Jackson, president of the ASU Foundation, said the renaming acknowledges the contributions of money and time Ira A. Fulton and his wife, Mary Lou, have made.

Considered one of the most productive players ever in college basketball, Diogu compiled an impressive resume as ASU's main offensive threat for three seasons. For his 91 career games played as a Sun Devil, Ike scored in double figures every time he stepped out on the court.

Football: Defensive line enters spring with 'chip on our shoulders'
