ASU men's basketball's Sai Tummala named Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholar

Arizona State University men's basketball junior forward Sai Tummala was one of two Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholar Award recipients Friday.

The award is dedicated after tennis legend Arthur Ashe, the first African-American tennis player to win in singles tournaments at Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, and Australian open.

It highlights outstanding performances by student athletes of diverse backgrounds, both in the classroom and in competition.

A member of Barrett, The Honors College, Tummala studies biological sciences (with an emphasis in animal physiology and behavior) and recently passed the MCAT examination.

Tummala, a Brophy High School product, averaged 4.2 minutes per game in 14 games played in 2014.
