To Be the Best...

As always, the Sun Devils will play one of the toughest schedules in the country, possibly the toughest in program history this year, combining a strong non-conference slate with the always powerful Pac-10 Conference schedule.

At The Helm

Coach Lou Belken enters his 25th season at the helm of the Sun Devil program, the sixth longest tenure of any head coach at ASU. In his 25 seasons, Belken has led his team to 18 berths in the tournament. This year he threatens to top the 300 wins mark as he enters the season with 284 career wins.
