Red Wolves bowling seeded eighth

"We've got a large hill to climb," said ASU Head Coach Chris James.  "We didn't start the day well, but we finished well.  Overall, we rebounded after the break and scored very well in baker format which shows a very strong light for tomorrow since it will be baker best four-of-seven."

"Tomorrow is a new day," added James.  The Red Wolves will begin competition Friday at 9:00 a.m. against Nebraska.  Fans can watch the tournament live via webcast from
