Michael Phelps Pops Out of ASU's Curtain of Distraction to Distract FT Shooter

Thomas DuffyFeatured ColumnistJanuary 28, 2016

Now, this is a distraction.

During Thursday night’s blowout between Arizona State and Oregon State, the "Curtain of Distraction" got a little help from swimmer Michael Phelps.

The student section announced that the 18-time Olympic gold medalist would take part in the distraction a day earlier.

Perhaps because of Phelps, the Beavers missed 'em both. The Sun Devils went on to win 86-68.
