ASU men's basketball to support scholarships on Latino Heritage Night

ASU men's basketball is partnering with the ASU Chicano/Latino Faculty & Staff Association (CLFSA) for the first Pac-12 game against the Washington Huskies at 6 p.m., Jan. 2, at  Wells Fargo Arena. Tickets are $13 per person and include pre-game activities such as a meet and greet with a member of the basketball coaching staff and a visit from Sparky.

During the game, ASU will honor Alberto Ríos, Regents' Professor and current CLFSA president, for his recent appointment as the inaugural Arizona Poet Laureate. Ríos is the author of 10 books and chapbooks, which are small collections of poetry, three collections of short stories and a memoir. Ríos is a Regents' Professor at Arizona State University, where he has taught since 1982, and holds the further distinction of the Katharine C. Turner Endowed Chair in English. 

There are two ways to order tickets: order online at and enter the promo code: LATINO, or call Nick Deutsch at Sun Devil Ticket Sales and Services at (480) 727-3521. A portion of every ticket purchased through the Latino promo code will be donated to the ASU-Latino Partnership Scholars Endowment Fund (formerly known as the Una Promesa Endowment Fund) on behalf of CLFSA. ASU students who meet eligibility requirements may apply for CLFSA scholarships. For more information on how to apply for a scholarship, contact

Founded in the fall of 1970, ASU CLFSA promotes the academic and professional advancements and educational success of the Chicano/Latino community at Arizona State University.
