ASU softball player is recognized as National Pitcher of the Week

ASU softball's lefty hurler, Giselle "G" Juarez, has had a breakout season. She's overcome lots of obstacles to get to where she is. Head Coach Trisha Ford talks about Juarez, who followed Ford from Fresno State to ASU prior to the 2017 season. Chris Gleason - Reporter: ASU sophomore Giselle Juarez, or “G” for short, was named the USA Softball division 1 national pitcher of the week on March 27, the first Sun Devil recognized for the honor in 4 years. Trisha Ford - ASU Softball Head Coach: She's just- she wants the ball, she's been dominating, just fantastic you know. Gleason: Juarez has come a long way after suffering a pair of hip injuries over the past two years that ultimately led her to getting surgery in August 2017. Ford: For her to achieve what she wants to achieve here, she knew that she had to do it again and go through all that pain and that rehab. But she also knew that she had to make a decision to kind of, you know, do some things differently. Gleason: One of those things has been an increased focus on mechanics, which was most evident during her streak of 79 scoreless innings, only broken in the fifth inning of Saturday’s 9-1 win over North Dakota State. Ford: She had some things that were not helping that hip stabilization, so we really sat down with our sports staff. So, the strength and conditioning, our trainer, myself and we really sat down and dissected her motion, and then came up with a game plan of how to kind of stabilize it, worked on her core, we did some tweaking with her hip placement and kind of angles at when she gets to toe-touch in her pitching motion. Gleason: Juarez’s breakthrough with the Sun Devils almost never happened, as she initially committed to Fresno State. But the Glendale native returned home after Ford took the head coaching job at ASU. But as she explains, transferring wasn’t an easy process. Ford: So they did not release her, then she went through an appeal, I believe that didn't go through either, but then Fresno State decided to go ahead and release her. So at any point in time once Fresno said "yes, we'll release her," everything was good to go. Gleason: But now, Ford can only marvel at what her sophomore lefty has accomplished. Reporter Question - Josh Schaefer: What can you say about the way that "G" performed this past week? Ford: Yeah, lights out Gleason - Reporter: Reporting for The State Press, I’m Chris Gleason.

Freshmen rap group emerges from a Tempe dorm room

Room 4 is a rap group made up of three ASU freshmen students. They currently create all of their music from one of the members' dorm room. Digital culture major Russel Prim goes by the stage name Rozotadi. Tireek Cody, also known as Tireek, and Jerimiah Griffin, whose stage name is Lonely Leonard, are both film majors. To listen to their music, check out Room 4 on SoundCloud. Music: "All My Life" by Room 4 and "Holex" by Room 4 Ariel Salk - Reporter: Room 4 is an up-and-coming rap group made up of three ASU students. Rozotadi, Lonely Leonard and Tireek are all freshmen. And met on the same day they moved into their dorm on the Tempe campus. Rozotadi - Russel Prim: August 11 or August 12, one of those days, the very first day we get here and get in our dorms we just all basically connected and we were like, 'Yo, you do music? Do you do music too? Well, let’s do music.' You know, and stuff like that. It’s just like we naturally assimilated. Salk: They record all of their music in Tadi's dorm room, which was the inspiration for the group's name. Lonely Leonard - Jerimiah Griffin: We have a punk rock set up, bro. It’s in a dorm room bro. People, people paying money for a studio, but we are in a dorm room with it like, like honestly, like those people with the loud music, like, you know the person that’s in your building that’s like down the hall bumping like loud music, imagine they were making music, bro, that’s us. Salk: Room 4 performed as ASU's Battle of the Bands, and rocked it. Tireek - Tireek Cody: It’s a really nice experience like because we had a lot of people who support us, come through, cheered us on, and it was just a lot of love. Salk: Room 4 just released their newest song, 'Holex.' Rozotadi: The song really started to develop, like they said, it started from something completely different. It was a song that I did 3-years-ago, and then now it’s developed into the intelligence, intelligent ignorance. What did you call it? Tireek: Intelligently ignorant. Tadi: Intelligently ignorant, but it’s not. Leonard: It’s classy, it’s like, there’s arpeggios, and like all those other big music words that you don’t know, I don’t know them either, he knows them. Tireek: In the chorus it said, “All I ever wanted was a watch and a bad chick,” but like, if you listen to the song, it’s about much more than that, it’s not just like, of course everybody want jewelry and all that, but it’s like, achieving all your dreams and goals. Salk: You can check them out on their Twitter of Instagram @room4culture. And find their music on almost any musical platform including Spotify and Youtube.

ASU men's tennis looks to build off loss in BNP Paribas Open Final

The Sun Devils fell just short of another regular season tournament win, but coach Matt Hill says the team has already come a long way from where they were to start the season. Chris Gleason - Reporter: ASU men’s tennis is coming off a trip to Indian Wells, California where it took part in the collegiate tournament at the BNP Paribas Open- one of tennis’s biggest annual tournaments worldwide. Andrea Bolla - ASU tennis player I had the chance to see the final between Federer and Del Potro and I could see the high level and the professionality- the professionalism, sorry- that they had on the court. So yeah, I mean we try to duplicate and replicate what they are doing but obviously it's not easy. Gleason - Reporter: The 34th ranked Sun Devils came up just one individual match short of winning their third tournament in as many appearances. They’ve improved after losing their first three matches of the year, having won 10 of 13 since then and playing tough against two of the country’s top teams in Stanford and Ohio State. Matt Hill - ASU tennis head coach: We got some really strong tennis players, winning tournaments to them is not a new task. It's something that they're accustomed to. Obviously playing in a team format is a very new task, that has been a big learning curve for them but I feel like in the two months that they have been playing college tennis they've grown you know exponentially. Gleason - Reporter: ASU’s roster features 9 players from 9 different countries, and Hill admits the group mentality wasn’t there early in the season. Hill - ASU tennis head coach: Scouting report on us early, like mid-January after we played those good teams, it got out that yeah it's a group of individuals. Which, I think one of the guys said in a team meeting this weekend at Indian Wells that was probably pretty accurate. It's a big factor when you're in battles with really good teams and they're all cohesive, they're all one unit and they're all pushing toward each other and you kind of feel like you're out there on your own, that's not easy I don't care how good you are. Gleason - Reporter: But now, Hill believes the improved chemistry within the diverse team has been a key to better results and has helped reestablish the program after its 10-year hiatus. Hill - ASU tennis head coach They're learning what it means like to come together as a group and compete together as a group, that's still new, I mean they're still working through that but it's ten times, fifty times better than it was in January.

ASU partners with a food bank to provide affordable fruits and veggies

Every third Saturday of each month Changemaker Central at ASU hosts a food drive in which the community can gather to purchase 60 pounds of produce for $10. Music: "Water Lillies" by Density & Time from YouTube Audio Library Kendon Jung - Student Activity Advisor: Changemaker on all locations has been partnering with Borderlands Food bank to bring the produce from Nogales, Arizona to save from wholesale waste distribution and we activate ASU Sun Devil students into a day of service to give the food out. Haley Rivard-Lentz- Sustainability and Public Policy Sophomore I love getting to interact with a lot of different people, seeing the huge impact we make. Because at the end we're told how much produce we've given out and how much money we've generated for the community. And it's great to hear those numbers and know how much of a positive impact we made in the community. Reach the reporter at golivera@asu.edu or follow @gabynolivera on Twitter.

The cast of a new Netflix movie makes an appearance at ASU

The Workaholics cast Adam Devine, Blake Anderson and Anders Holm brought ASU students onto their party bus on Wednesday, March 14. They also visited the Memorial Union on the Tempe campus to promote their new Netflix movie, Game Over, Man! Ariel Salk - Reporter: On March 14, the cast from the popular show, Workaholics, visited ASU to promote their new movie, Game Over, Man! The Netflix original is an off-the-wall action movie staring Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, and Anders Holm. The trio invited ASU students onto their party bus, and made a quick stop at the MU on the Tempe campus. We got the opportunity at the State Press to talk with the guys about their upcoming movie. Adam Devine - Actor: We all sort of broke the story down together. And then talked about some cool funny scenes that we thought would be, you know, fun,and then Ders (Anders Holm) would go off and write them and then we would come back together and talk about it. Salk: Anderson talked about the differences working in TV versus making a movie. Blake Anderson - Actor: Coming from like TV and stuff you kinda are just, like, rushing through your day so much. So it was cool doing a movie and being able to like actually spend time in the scenes, and like, find the comedy of it. Salk: Devine spoke about making a movie through Netflix compared to the traditional route. Devine: I've done some big studio movies and then you have to go to like things like conventions, where you get up there and you realize that they're there to make money off popcorn and soda. So like, they can't piss those companies off. So they maybe not, they maybe wouldn't want this movie in the theaters. But Netflix, they just want cool, fun, movies that serve an audience, and I think we definitely will serve an audience. Salk: I'm Ariel Salk, reporting for the State Press.
