The Washington State women's basketball team had a record-setting night Thursday at Wells Fargo Arena.

Close game escapes Sun Devils in the end

This time, it didn't come down to the last possession.

Unlike the last time the ASU basketball team faced Washington State, the Cougars put the Sun Devils away in the final minutes, not the final seconds.

Opinions: From flab to fab

DHANANI: Every other commercial and every other Internet pop-up seems to promise a "fab bod" and a new life assuming that both are connected. Apparently, fabulous bodies equate to a fabulous life. Even Oprah has done a special well, several specials covering how people can lose weight and the new enriched lives of those who have gone from flab to fab.

Opinions: Where credit is unfortunately due

SPIVACK: Most of us are in debt, and if we aren't in debt now, at some point in our lives, whether it's because of college, mortgages or any numbers of things, we will be in debt.

It's quite common and is nothing to get too upset about. At the a time, however, when everyone is whispering the word "recession" about our economy, we need to consider the financial repercussions of the acts not only of individuals, but of the financial transactions that make individual debt so possible.

Opinions: Boos and Bravos
See what the editorial board boo'd and bravo'd this week.

Court drama electrifies ASU
It's a hot summer afternoon in New York in 1954 and an African-American 16-year-old boy is on trial for first-degree murder. You and 11 other white males have been confined to a 16 by 20 foot jury room, faced with the burden of deciding this child's fate.

World peace
Among the many pageant girl stereotypes, my favorite might have to be "world peace" from the movie Miss Congeniality. For me, it might not be too far from the truth.

Review: "Yo Gabba Gabba!": Not just for kids
OK, so technically "Yo Gabba Gabba!" is a children's television show. However, it has a cult following of young parents, stoners and ska fans large enough to deserve a closer look.
