The ASU women's basketball team was plagued by its inability to notch a signature win all season.

And now that black cloud will hover over the Sun Devils (22-11) for the entire offseason, as No. 6-seed ASU lost to third-seeded Duke, 67-59, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Tuesday.

Opinions: Madness? You ain't seen nothing yet

PELTON: Oh, the madness.

First, there was the unfortunate event of Western Kentucky hitting a miraculous shot to beat Drake, screwing my bracket over. Then, Georgetown decided to act like they've never played basketball before, which left me shaking my head in disgrace. My girlfriend could have picked more winners than I had. Both of these hurt me badly.

And then there's the madness here in Phoenix. In just a few days, the Valley of the Sun will host yet another major sporting event — the NCAA Men's Basketball West Region Finals. Due to this, the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 portion of the West fourth of the big bracket will be played at U.S. Airways Arena.

Opinions: Church should not be an annoying obligation

CLEVERLY: As a regular churchgoer who is Catholic, I get frustrated with a certain group of people who give religion a bad name, especially when such small easy steps could be taken to fix their image. These people are called "Christers," the combination of the words Christmas and Easter.

Obviously, these are the two most important holidays to any Christian, and personally they're my favorite — great food is cooked and spending time with the extended crazy family is always fun. But since I go to church every Sunday and usually sit in the front row with my family, I hate going to Christmas Eve and Easter masses.

Austin or Bust: SXSW 2008

'Tis the season for the music industry. The holiday box sets have gone out and spring brings first-quarter optimism in an industry suffering from uncertainty. The practice of touring is a huge factor for artists, and creates buzz around them in a tangible way.


Review: Yardhouse

If it seems surprising to find satisfying food at the mall, then Yardhouse is a very pleasant surprise.


It's getting haute in Phoenix
As always in fashion, there is a constant turnover of "new" trends and hot places to be.


From the editor: I should be hugging a Peep instead
This editorial is not about fashion. I'm sorry the picture is deceiving; I am just not a very fashionable person.


On the catwalk
I was a big fan of the Harajuku girls introduced by the catchy tunes of Gwen Stefani. I was accustomed to sushi and knew what a typical kimono was. I did not, however, think in a million years I would come face to face with any of those.
