Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian in history, broke out the Speedo on Thursday night, but there was no swimming pool in sight.

The 18-time gold medal winner joined Arizona State's Curtain of Distraction in the Sun Devils' matchup with Oregon State.

With 13:47 remaining in the second half, Phelps made his debut. He and the rest of the Curtain of Distraction forced Oregon State's Stephen Thompson Jr. to miss both free throws, as Wells Fargo Arena crowd erupted in what was a commanding 51-28 Arizona State lead.

Phelps relocated to Tempe, Ariz., in the spring of 2015 to train with coach Bob Bowman.

Arizona State went on an 86-68 victory.
