If you've ever spent significant time watching Pacific-10 Conference basketball, you'd most likely be surprised that there has never been a team that has finished winless in that conference: Not even the Ben Lindsey-coached Arizona Wildcats of 1982-83, which went 4-24 overall (they won two conference games, ushering in the Lute Olson Era the following season). Well, meet the Arizona State Sun Devils, who after a 67-61 loss to UCLA on Thursday are 6-20 overall, 0-14 in the Pac-10. With four games to go, ASU will try to avoid becoming the first Pac-10 team to go winless in conference play since the league expanded to 10 schools in 1978-79. The Sun Devils' last four conference games are two at home against USC and Arizona, and one each at Stanford and Cal. Despite this hopeless scenario, however, ASU continues to have one of the finest mascots in all of college basketball.

But hey, it's not all about basketball. The men of ASU are busy with important scientific research, and have little time for your "games."
