Monday wasn’t Shabazz Muhammad’s most memorable day on the court.
Completely squandering a 24-point lead to the Phoenix Suns, Minnesota went to the UCLA product with the game tied in the final seconds. Muhammad, already having a rough shooting day (3-9 from the field, 1-5 from the line), had the ball wrestled away from him by his defender, and Phoenix’s Marcus Morris drilled a contested fadeaway jumper at the buzzer to give the Suns an improbable 91-89 victory.
While Carrick Felix is currently a Cleveland Cavalier, it’s clear that he is still very much a Fork at heart.

“Oh yeah, it’s all I got!” the Sun Devil grad and 2012-13 Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Scholar Athlete of the Year quipped upon a reporter’s inquiry of his ASU getup.
Andrew Goudelock had been killing it in his first two games for the Chicago Bulls at the 2013 NBA Summer League, as the so-called “Mini-Mamba” had dropped a combined 57 points in that span.

And in key stretches during the fourth quarter, there was a familiar face manning Goudelock -- the 2012-13 Pac-12 Player of the Year, Allen Crabbe.
Busy working on his strength and other matters related to conditioning and football in general, Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is focused on improvement as preseason camp looms. He was recently named to the O'Brien Award watch list for the top collegiate signal-caller in Amurrica.
It’s no secret that Arizona State lined up an intense five-game stretch to kick off the Sun Devils’ 2013 football season. With that grueling schedule in mind, the team will immediately be looking to their returning quarterback, Taylor Kelly, to lead the way. Kelly was recently added to the 2013 Maxwell Award watch list, an award given to America’s College Player of the Year annually.
The Pac-12 upheld its reputation as the Conference of Champions in 2012-13, collecting eight NCAA titles throughout the academic year.
