‘Unfriending’ could have psychological impact By Brittny Mejia DAILY WILDCAT A UA researcher found losing friends on Facebook may present negative psychological effects for some, but for a site that has more than 800 million users and counting, losing one friend may seem insignificant to others. David Sbarra, a UA psychology professor, said the psychological effects on some Facebook users who are unfriended are especially

common in those with a history of social rejection. Neuroscience research demonstrates that even rejection from something as simple as a game of catch can cause activation in regions of the brain that are associated with physical pain, Sbarra said. “We are a social species, we get along best by connecting with other people,” he said. “Being unfriended is a signal that something isn’t going right in the social environment

and we are programmed to detect threats in the social environment.” Sbarra explained that some people are hyper-focused on relationships and their status within those relationships. These people tend to have a more anxious attachment to others and are more likely to get upset when unfriended. “I think it would bother people who aren’t social and don’t have a lot of friends, or people with a low self-esteem,” said Erica Goudy,

a psychology sophomore who has more than 100 Facebook friends. Others with a friend count as high as 700 sometimes don’t even notice when someone deletes them, or if they do, they are unfazed by the action. “It bothers people that are addicted to Facebook and care too much,” said Tim Brousse, a freshman studying pre-business who has more than 700 friends. “It doesn’t bug me at all.”

Sometimes the act of unfriending is as simple as people going through their Facebook friend list and deleting anyone they do not socialize with, Sbarra said. Other times, being unfriended can reflect a rift in a friendship. “I don’t really care,” said Beatriz Verdugo, a pre-business sophomore. “You don’t really need a friend if they’re deleting you. You can tell what kind of person they are if they do.”

The women’s rugby club is one of the on-campus club sports that attracts students ready to compete, have fun and meet new people — but playing a part comes with a price. Although the UA gives some funding to club sports, travel expenses and equipment are often covered by the athletes themselves.

Clubs fight for funding from UA By Savannah Martin DAILY WILDCAT Few students are aware that the UA is home to more than 30 club sports, including men’s and women’s rugby, lacrosse, ultimate frisbee and even ballroom dancing. Many of these teams compete on a national level, traveling cross-country to participate in tournaments and championships. According to Mary O’Mahoney, assistant director for sports clubs and aquatics at the UA Department of Student Recreation, more than

1,100 students participate in sports clubs at the UA. Despite their popularity, many students are oblivious to the variety and size of the sports club program. “A lot of people don’t even realize that there is a women’s rugby team,” said Carly Gieszl, a sophomore studying family studies and human development and president of the Women’s Rugby Football Club. “A lot of people hear about the men’s team but they’re like, ‘wait, women’s rugby?’”

Each year, students pay a health and recreation fee of $300. A portion of this fee goes to support the Sport Club Program at the Department of Campus Recreation, which allocates $100,000 to provide facilities and trainers for each team, O’Mahoney said. Campus Recreation reimburses teams for other expenses as well, like traveling to competitions. Not every team receives the same amount of funding. Instead, Campus Recreation decides how much money to allocate to each team using a

classification system that is based on the team’s activity during the previous year. Teams receive points in seven categories, including the size of the club, the number of practices and meetings held each week, the cost of maintaining the club and the club’s competitiveness. The total number of points a club receives determines which funding category it belongs in. Additionally, teams must submit a budget request that is determined by

UA students compete in pageants By Eliza Molk DAILY WILDCAT When UA students Jennifer Sedler and Piper Stoeckel were competing against each another in dance competitions years ago, they never thought they would be running for Miss America or Miss Arizona years later. “I wasn’t one of the ‘Toddlers and Tiaras’ little girls,” said Sedler, a physiology sophomore who decided to participate in pageants about a year ago when she learned they could help her gain scholarship money, further her outreach to the community and advance her education. Sedler, who is currently Miss Arizona, will be competing in the Miss America pageant on Jan. 14. The journey toward becoming a contestant for Miss America was a long one, Sedler said, because she first had to win a local title, Miss Phoenix, and then be crowned Miss

“I already know this is going to be one of the most memorable and incredibly life-changing weeks of my life,” she said. The Miss America organization has also helped her as a student, she said, by allowing her to develop business and interview skills that will benefit her future career practicing medicine. Sedler will be returning to the UA to finish her undergraduate degree in fall 2012 unless she wins Miss America, in which case she will return in January of 2013. “I’m the fourth generation in my family to attend the UA, so I’ve got Wildcat in my blood,” she said.

DAILY WILDCAT A brand-new pair of do-it-yourself bicycle repair stations have been installed on campus, maintaining the UA’s reputation as a bike-friendly campus. The lime green stations, manufactured by Dero Bike Racks, have been installed in two locations on campus — in front of the Henry Koffler building and on the west side of the Arizona Health Sciences Center. Users are able to hang their bikes from the seatpost and make minor adjustments using the 17 tools that are tethered to the unit, including a manual air pump. According to Bill Davidson, marketing manager for Parking and Transportation Services, the stations were an obvious step in the right direction in terms of making bicycling on campus easier, especially after the success of the bike station on the UA Mall, which is run by volunteers from a bike association in Pima County. “We wanted to really take that bike station idea to the next level and pilot two repair stations where people can do their own bike-fixing and get air,” Davidson said. Davidson also added that one of the best parts about the new stations is that everything is free, including the air, which can cost money at other locations like convenience stores. Funding for the stations came directly from within the PTS budget — the department generates its own revenue through parking passes and tickets, and receives no funding from the university. Students who bike regularly on campus said they are also finding the stations to be a practical addition considering the UA’s high amount of bicycle traffic.

UA pioneers research for safer imaging By Stephanie Zawada Daily Wildcat

Researchers in the department of electrical and computer engineering have been awarded a National Science Foundation grant to make a high-resolution imager that would enhance the UA’s imaging research. The foundation gave researchers from the UA College of Engineering a $530,000 grant to design, build and test a high-resolution spectral imager. This machine will conduct tests by emitting terahertz rays, which have frequencies that extend from the lower end of the infrared band until the beginning of the microwave band on the electromagnetic spectrum.

One of the project’s leading researchers, Richard Ziolkowski, a professor of optical sciences and electrical and computer engineering, has been a pioneer in the emerging study of the “terahertz gap.” Terahertz, Ziolkowski said, “is non-ionizing radiation,” which does not cause an atom or molecule to lose an electron. Because the frequency of terahertz rays is less than that of visible light but more than that of microwave radiation, terahertz can be used to identify objects in ways that had previously been impossible without causing damage. This makes the development of Ziolkowski’s spectral imager highly coveted, especially by security firms, material manufacturers and biomedical researchers.

“Raytheon would be interested,” Ziolkowski said. “Companies can’t do this on their own.” The cost of building such a high quality instrument is out of the question for most companies, but possible for universities with funding from organizaRichard tions like the Ziolkowski National Science professor Foundation. In addition to the funding received from the foundation, the College of Engineering and Leslie Tolbert provided $238,000 for the project. “One of the nice things about

being at a university is being able to try new things,” Ziolkowski said. “That’s hard to do at a company.” Students are already expressing interest in using the new imager. “I am very excited,” said Ning Zhu, Ziolkowski’s research assistant and a graduate student in electrical and computer engineering. “I am looking forward to replacing X-ray imaging systems with THz imaging systems that use safer, non-ionizing radiation to detect specific chemicals, such as those associated with explosives at airports.” The higher the resolution of the spectral imager, the more effectively objects can be identified. In melanoma testing, Ziolkowski said, terahertz radiation will show “not just the spot on the surface but how far it

has spread around the spot.” “It will take three years to model, fabricate and get the spectral imager in working condition,” Ziolkowski said. “The hope would be after two years to have a working device.” During the final year, Ziolkowski said he hopes they’ll “see things others haven’t.” Ziolkowski will work on the modeling for the imager while researchers Hao Xin, an electrical and computer engineering faculty member, and Michael Gehm, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, will work on constructing the equipment. “Being at the forefront is the important part,” Ziolkowski said. “You don’t know what you’re going to find.”

Marc Small, a newly appointed ASUA senator, has big plans in store for UA students this semester involving financial aid and diversity programs.

Allen, ASUA fill vacant Senate seat By Eliza Molk

Daily Wildcat The ASUA Senate unanimously appointed Marc Small as a replacement for Marielos Castro, a former senator who resigned from the governing body in December for medical reasons. The Associated Students of the University of Arizona Senate held an open application process to fill the seat, and almost 20 students applied, according to ASUA President James Allen. Allen said that Small, a sophomore majoring in pre-business and political science, was selected because during his interview to become the new senator, expressed a passion to increase financial aid and diversity programs on campus. “He talked about idea after idea,” Allen said. “I haven’t seen that in a senator in forever.” Small said he is excited to begin serving in the senate because he can implement his ideas this semester, instead of waiting to run until next semester, as previously planned. “Students want a lot out of us, but don’t see as much as they get,” Small said.

Implementing an interest-free Emergency Loan Program is one of Small’s initial projects. The program, he said, would allow students to apply for a loan if they encounter a financial emergency, such as if a family member who was supporting them, dies. Small also said he wants ASUA to “branch out more” by getting involved in the local community. Sen. Danielle Dobrusin, he said, had the idea of hosting a movie at Arizona Stadium to benefit St. Joseph’s Hospital. “We can do something like that if we are more involved in the community,” Small explained. Allen said the reason the new senator was not elected by the students is because there was “not enough time to make the election worthwhile.” ASUA bylaws state that if a senate vacancy occurs after Nov. 1 of the senate term, it can be filled by a presidential appointment if the candidate is approved by three-fourths of the senate. Having an application process, Allen said, coincided with ASUA bylaws and was both open and democratic.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — The Republican presidential sweepstakes shifted Wednesday to South Carolina, where former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney hopes to keep running the table of contests while his rivals try desperately to halt his momentum toward the GOP nomination. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and Texas Gov. Rick Perry fanned across the Palmetto State in hope of salvaging their campaigns by wooing the state’s large Christian evangelical population and by raising questions about Romney’s conservative credentials. Gingrich launched a not-so-thinlyveiled attack on Romney in Rock Hill. Without mentioning him by name, Gingrich dismissed the GOP frontrunner as a “Massachusetts moderate.” He also attacked Romney’s record with Bain Capital, the privateequity firm that Romney co-founded. The firm profited by investing in troubled companies, turning some into successes while others failed. Often jobs were shed in the restructuring process — which Gingrich and Perry are attacking as evidence of Romney’s cold-hearted capitalism. A super-PAC backing Gingrich plans to spend $3.4 million in South Carolina airing a documentary that rips Romney as “more ruthless than Wall Street.” Romney has said that attacking his record at Bain “put free enterprise on trial.” But Gingrich insisted to a standing-room-only crowd at Rock Hill’s Laurel Creek Club that Romney’s time at Bain is fair game. “Criticizing specific actions in specific places is not being anti-free enterprise,” he said. “And raising questions about that is not wrong.” Perry, who finished last in the sixman field in New Hampshire, also took shots at Romney for his work at Bain.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney addresses supporters at The Hall at Senate’s End in Columbia, S.C., on Wednesday.

“I understand the difference between venture capitalism and vulture capitalism,” Perry said at a Lexington restaurant. “I’m kind of like that old ad: I believe in doing it the old-fashioned way. I happen to think companies like Bain Capital could have come in and helped these companies if they were truly venture capitalists, but they’re not. They’re vulture capitalists. And that’s what I want the people of South Carolina to think about.” The attacks on Romney will likely grow louder in the run-up to the Jan. 21 primary. South Carolina is perhaps the last best chance for Perry, Gingrich or Santorum to upset Romney, or to at least slow his momentum. But the three GOP candidates are courting the same pool of voters — the 60 percent of likely Republican voters who are self-described Christian evangelicals. That bloc could be cool to Romney, a Mormon. About 150 evangelical leaders, wary of a Romney nomination, are scheduled to meet Friday in Texas to consider uniting behind a single alternative to Romney.

Gingrich said his campaign will “consolidate conservatives across South Carolina” over the next 10 days. Potential voters like Pat Snoope, who attended Gingrich’s Rock Hill event, spoke music to Gingrich’s ears. A retired clerical worker, Snoope said he’s looking for an alternative to Romney because “I’m just scared he’s going to go liberal as soon as he gets in.” Even before he arrived in South Carolina, Gingrich began raising questions about Romney’s commitment to conservative causes. ProGingrich ads began running here two days ago saying that Romney “governed pro-abortion” in Massachusetts. After barely edging out Santorum in Iowa last week and crushing the entire Republican field in New Hampshire on Tuesday, Romney leads polls in South Carolina. Given the state’s conservative culture and its reputation for bare-knuckle politics, Romney knows he’s no shoo-in. “I’ve got an uphill climb in South Carolina ahead of me,” he told NBC’s “Today” show Wednesday.

the previous year’s expenses. Each fall, sports clubs must submit their budget, register as a club with the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and determine their classification in order to be eligible for funds. Despite financial support from Campus Recreation, many sports clubs are primarily self-funded, O’Mahoney said. Sports club fees can cost anywhere from nothing to $2,600 per year. These fees, combined with fundraisers and donations, pay some of the costs of playing a club sport. The rest of the burden often falls upon the athletes. The Women’s Rugby Football club is one team that relies primarily on player support. For these athletes, one of the biggest expenses is traveling back and forth to compete against teams in California, their nearest competitors.

According to Gieszl, the players carpool to and from games, often driving five or six vehicles and splitting the cost of gas among the team. Once they arrive at their destination, the athletes have to find a place to sleep for the night. If they are lucky, they are housed by the opposing team, sleeping on their living room floors, Gieszl said. If the opposition can’t house the team, each player has to come up with the money to pay for hotel rooms. According to Alex Rath, a pre-nursing freshman and member of the women’s rugby club, the team purchased four hotel rooms to house 30 players on a trip to California. Another challenge the team faces is having time to compete while still tending to their academic and personal responsibilities. Because they don’t play an NCAA sport, the players have to do most of their physical training outside of practice, Gieszl said. They also organize study groups to maintain their academic standing during the

rugby season. Regardless of the cost and the extra time, sports clubs continue to grow, according to O’Mahoney. Fifteen years ago, the number of athletes in the Sport Club Program was between 700 and 800, she estimated. “You’ve got students that come to the University of Arizona specifically because they know the experience they’re going to get playing rugby here, or playing ice hockey here, or playing lacrosse here,” she said. “Students stay here because they get involved with a (sports) club, just like any other club on campus. It helps anchor them to the campus and the community.” According to Gieszl and Rath, the community and the passion the players share for the sport are what makes playing a club sport like women’s rugby worth the extra time and money. “It’s an instant group of friends,” Rath said. “I just decided it was worth paying for it because it’s been so much fun.”

help her “be part of a change” in addition to enjoying the performance aspect. “It just takes a strong force to get out and promote prevention,” she said. “I like the glitz and the glam, but below it, there is so much more that inspired me to do this.” Stoeckel is working with local organizations like Casa de los Ninos, which offer services to promote child safety and the Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse in order to expand her platform

in Arizona and fight against child abuse. Aside from working on her community outreach platform, Stoeckel said she will be practicing her lyrical-contemporary dance routine in preparation for the June pageant as well as updating her wardrobe, making appearances at local community organizations and hitting the gym. “I’m definitely motivated,” she said. “Once I break down those nerves, I can show the judges who I really am.”

A bike hangs on one of the new repair stations, installed by Parking and Transportation Services, outside the Henry Koffler building.

“Sometimes when you’re biking, random stuff can happen to your bike,” said T.J. Venne, a journalism senior. “Being able to stop and tighten your seat or pump up your tires, especially this time of year when it’s cold out and can be rainy, is really helpful.” Even students who don’t know how to make repairs to their bicycles have said that having access to the tools

makes riding on campus more comfortable. “I don’t know how to do all the work on my bike,” said Jeannie Wood, a creative writing sophomore. “But I don’t have tools for my bike, so that would be kind of nice to know I could go somewhere and fix the chain or something.” And while some student bicyclists say they won’t use the stations all that often, they did like the idea of PTS using money from parking passes and tickets to help fund a service

for bicyclists. “They’re gathering revenue from parking, and, from what I’ve heard, they charge a lot for parking,” said Kate Flower, a graduate student studying information resources and library science. “Anything they can do to turn that around and try to get more people to bike, I think, is a really good thing.” Because of the positive feedback that PTS has already gathered, the installation of more stations throughout campus is a definite possibility.

Bursar’s not free spending money Ashley Reid Daily Wildcat

A

s the automatic sliding glass doors glide open, the buzz of shopper’s voices mingles with background music. Feverishly long lines of people twist between shelves of merchandise and employees dash around the store to keep up with the overwhelming swarm of shoppers. No, this is not a scene from a postholiday sale department store, but rather the university bookstore in the first week of the semester. The UofA Bookstore is a hub to students, alumni, sports fans and optimistic high school students yearning to become Wildcats. “Sales spike at the beginning of the semester,” said Rachel Held, who works at the technology section of the Bookstore. “Students bursar all sorts of technology, from cameras to Beats by Dre (headphones) to iPads.” It’s a known fact that sales would increase at the beginning of each semester for books and supplies. But the dark side of that sales spike is the anonymous student shopping spree. The trouble with the Bookstore is that, quite frankly it’s not well-loved for it’s main purpose: selling books. The beginning of each semester marks three things: a new schedule, syllabus week and the beauty of the bursar’s account. Bursar’s accounts essentially give free reign to students to purchase whatever they want within the proximity of bookstore walls and charge it to an account that is disguised as money spent on “textbooks.” Some students have relatives paying for their textbooks, but may not tell them that they are also paying for running shorts and an iPad. The bursar’s account can be a beautiful thing for students who actually use it to buy textbooks and other material for classes. It’s nice to have an account to put purchases on without filling up your credit card or having immediate fees to pay. It can also be convenient for those who pay for tuition, books and all other dues in one place. “I only use bursar’s for stuff I need, like textbooks, ink cartridges and lab material,” said Rachael Yeskey, a nutritional sciences sophomore. “Things like lab coats and goggles are very expensive, but the bookstore has really nice ones.” However, it’s unbelievable that some students get carried away in the thought of the bursar’s account as being a magic account that doesn’t negatively affect anyone, since they don’t have to pay it. “It’s like playing with Monopoly money,” said Morgan Marchetti, a pre-business sophomore. “It’s not real.” Some college folk cannot grasp the fact that buying $450 worth of UA clothes is not the same as spending $450 on textbooks. It’s not fair to the person who is paying. — Ashley Reid is a journalism sophomore. She can be reached at letters@wildcat.arizona.edu or on Twitter via @WidcatOpinions.

Does our women’s basketball team winning nearly every game this season mean nothing? Do they not deserve the attention of the media for their hard work and effort that is clearly paying off?

This should be the year for change. This isn’t the 1950s anymore — women have become CEOs of companies and they’ve ran for president. With these accomplishments, is it really that hard to send a TV crew to cover some of the Wildcat women’s basketball?

POLICE BEAT By Elliot P. Hopper DAILY WILDCAT

Wheelin’ and stealin’

A UA student reported at 6:07 a.m. on Monday that the front wheel of his bike had been stolen. Police arrived at the scene and learned that the bike was a Raleigh brand touring bike. The report was filed at 1040 E. Fourth St. at the bike rack. The University of Arizona Police Department searched the surrounding areas for the wheel and suspects, but could not find either. There is no further information at this time.

Writing on the wall

A Parking and Transportation Services employee noticed black spray paint on the fifth level of the Tyndall Avenue Parking Garage on Monday. A UAPD officer arrived on the scene and noticed the graffiti written on the concrete wall. The letters spelled out “SCRUB” vertically. The graffiti was just to the right of the elevator. The last time PTS checked for graffiti was on Jan. 6. There are no suspects, witnesses or further information at this time.

Blue bag goes bye bye

A resident assistant at Colonia de la Paz Residence Hall stumbled upon a bag of marijuana lying in the hallway at 9:20 a.m. on Monday. He called UAPD, who arrived at the scene and questioned the RA. The RA said he did not touch the bag nor did he see anyone drop it or come near it. UAPD officers confiscated the blue bag of marijuana and placed it into property and evidence for destruction. No further investigation was needed.

Dude, where’s my car?

A UAPD officer arrived at the Park Avenue Parking Garage on Monday where he found a car that a student had reported stolen days before. A UAPD officer called the student and informed him and his parents they had recovered the car. Upon arriving, the student informed the police that it may not have been stolen and that he misplaced the car and couldn’t remember where he parked. He also said that there was nothing missing from the car. The vehicle was released back to the owner and the car was taken off the reported-stolen list.

A hurt vehicle

During winter break, UAPD officers responded to a UA employee who reported that his work vehicle, a white Chevrolet truck, had been damaged. The officers took photographs of the damages, which had been in the left rear panel of the car next to the wheel well. The wheel and the hood were also damaged. UAPD officers said that the damage from the hood could have come from a person or a large object. There are no suspects at this time.

Gettin’ high up high

During winter break, a UAPD officer responded to a maintenance call from a UA employee who was working on the top of a university building. The employee noticed marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the corner of the rooftop. Police arrived at the scene and received custody of the illegal items. Officers said that the illegal items may have been stored on the rooftop due to the cleaning out of the residence halls. There are no suspects and the investigation has been closed.

Police Beat is compiled from official University of Arizona Police Department reports. A complete list of UAPD activity can be found at www.uapd.arizona.edu.

Sports scoreboard:

Arizona hires Casteel to run D Final three openings on RichRod’s staff filled Wednesday By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat During his first press conference as Arizona’s new head coach, Rich Rodriguez said he hoped to fill out his coaching staff by Christmas. Rodriguez’s staff came 17 days tardy but was well worth the wait. After weeks of speculation, it was announced Wednesday afternoon that former West Virginia defensive coordinator and heralded defensive mind Jeff Casteel would join his former colleague in Tucson as Arizona’s defensive coordinator. Jeff Casteel Rodriguez also defensive hired David Lock- coordinator wood (WVU) as his defensive backs coach, Bill Kirelawich (WVU) as his defensive line coach, and Spencer Leftwich (Pittsburgh) as his tight ends coach, finally filling out Arizona’s staff. “We are very excited to have Jeff, David, Bill and Spencer, and their families, join our family here at the University of Arizona,” Rodriguez said in a release. “They are not only great coaches, but great people who bring a lot of quality experience and knowledge to our staff.” Casteel is the biggest hire of the four, bringing a wealth of experience to the Old Pueblo in the one area where Rodriguez has proven deficient. Casteel had served as the Mountaineers’ defensive coordinator since 2003 and has a handful of accolades, including being named the 2008 Big East Coordinator of the Year, and 2010 Rivals Defensive Coordinator of the Year. He coached top-10 defenses in both 2007 and 2010 and quickly earned a reputation for his 3-3-5 defensive scheme. Casteel coached under Rodriguez at West Virginia from 2003 to 2007, and Rodriguez tried to lure Casteel to Michigan as his defensive coordinator. Casteel wouldn’t budge back in 2007, but he couldn’t turn down Rodriguez’s offer to come to Tucson. While Casteel found most of his success at West Virginia, he’s been coaching for 28 years, 11 of which included bowl seasons. He coached for 10 years at Shepherd University from 1988-1999 and at UTEP in 2000. Casteel also coached at the Morgantown University in 2002. While Casteel is certainly the biggest catch of the four, Lockwood, Kirelawich and Leftwich bring impressive pedigrees as well. Lockwood was the defensive backs coach at WVU for the past four seasons, after coaching the position at Kentucky in 2007. In addition to WVU and Kentucky, the Mountaineer graduate also coached at Minnesota, Notre Dame, Memphis, James Madison and Delaware. While Lockwood’s been all over the map, Kirelawich has been at West Virginia since 1979. He’s coached both the defensive line and linebackers

On the heels of our turnovers in L.A., if we can take care of the ball, that would be a huge stat toward us beating Oregon State. — Head coach Sean Miller on Oregon State

Hoops hosts Oregon State, looks to clean up offense By Nicole Dimtsios Daily Wildcat Arizona’s turnovers in Los Angeles weren’t pretty for head coach Sean Miller, and ball security is going to be a priority for the Wildcats when they host Oregon State tonight at 6:30 in McKale Center. “On the heels of our turnovers in L.A., if we can take care of the ball, that would be a huge stat toward us beating Oregon State,” Miller said on Monday. The Beavers (11-5, 1-3) lead the Pac-12 in steals and blocks, averaging 10 steals and five blocks per game. And while the Wildcats (11-5, 2-1) struggle with taking care of the ball, OSU has made forcing turnovers a point of emphasis.

Opponents average 18.6 turnovers per game against the Beavers. “They push the ball, they have a number of players that are versatile that can score. They use their defense to create scoring opportunities,” Miller said. “Their defense is always predicated on trying to turn you over and being aggressive, and that’s something we have to do a really good job.” Oregon State’s man defense is playing “faster” according to junior forward Solomon Hill, but it’s the occasional 1-3-1-zone look on defense that Hill said Arizona was worried about. “My first year it was a disaster,” Hill said. “Getting these (freshmen)

What to watch for: • Foul trouble will be an important part of the game as senior Kyle Fogg will be charged with guarding OSU’s Cunningham, who leads the conference in free-throw attempts with 138. Cunningham has twice as many free-throw attempts as any other player in the conference. • Defending Oregon State’s big men will be something to watch for the Wildcats. In addition to the foul problems Cunningham can create, the Beavers also

have six players standing 6-foot8 or taller. Senior Jesse Perry and freshman Angelo Chol will have to have big games in the paint for Arizona. • The Wildcats lead the conference in defending the 3-point shot, but will need to watch out for OSU’s Ahmad Starks and Roberto Nelson. Starks is third in the conference with 41 3-pointers made, averaging 2.5 per game. Nelson has a high shooting percentage from beyond the arc, sinking 43 percent of his 3-point shots.

OSU guard among nation’s elite By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat rizona has faced its fair share of elite guards this season. From the nation’s third leading scorer Reggie Hamilton of Oakland University, to 18.7 point per game scorer and three-point maven Kenny Boynton of the University of Florida, to speedy 5-foot-7 USC point guard Maurice Jones, the Wildcats have collided with nearly every style of elite guard in the country. So Arizona should be more than ready to take on Oregon State’s Jared Cunningham and his Pac-12 leading 17.6 points per game, right? Not quite. “Jared Cunningham, one of my favorite players in the country, does it on offense and defense and gives great effort,” said head coach Sean Miller. “He’s explosive and to me he’s one of the more talented guards that plays college basketball.” Cunningham is a different type of guard than Hamilton, Boynton or Jones. At 6-foot-4, 194 pounds, he’s physical, athletic and has a knack for getting in the lane, as only three players in the country have attempted more free throws than Cunningham’s 138. He’s averaging 8.6 free throw attempts per contest and put up 23 free tosses en route to a 37-point outburst against Texas earlier in the season. Needless to say, Arizona needs to keep him off of the charity stripe if it hopes to keep him in check. “He can get you in foul trouble,” Solomon Hill said of Cunningham. “(Kyle) Fogg has to limit his free throw attempts. If Fogg gets in early foul trouble then it puts pressure on our backcourt.” But Cunningham doesn’t just get to the line. He can finish at the rim, convert in the mid-range game, create for his teammates and thrive in transition, all of which Arizona is well aware of. Hill said he remembers when Cunningham dunked over Nic Wise two seasons ago in McKale Center. Cunningham did it again last season as he slammed home an Oregon State miss over Jesse Perry in Corvallis, Ore. “Certain plays like that you don’t forget, you just try and make sure you’re not the one that’s in the next highlight,” Hill said. Fogg, Arizona’s defensive stopper, and the rest of the Wildcats will have their hands full with Cunningham, who figures to test UA’s perimeter defense early and often. He’s scored in double digits in every OSU game but two this season, including two 30-plus point efforts. How does Arizona plan on stopping the explosive junior? “It’s just team defense. When he wants to drive the gaps somebody’s got to help out, it can’t be one-on-one,” said Solomon Hill. “(Kyle) Fogg got in trouble like that against Maurice Jones. Maurice is a much quicker point guard but the fact that Fogg was playing one-on-one with him put us at a disadvantage.”

Oregon State guard Jared Cunningham has transformed from a player with raw talent to the Pac-12’s top scorer and one of the top guards in America. Oregon State takes on Arizona tonight at 6:30.

Arizona, Oregon continue high-scoring series By Zack Rosenblatt Daily Wildcat If the Arizona women’s basketball team wants to prove that it belongs in the NCAA tournament and that its current 12-3 record is no fluke, now is the time. The Wildcats travel to Eugene, Ore., to take on the Ducks tonight at 8. “I feel good going into this game,” head coach Niya Butts said. “We’ve prepared well over the last couple of days. We’re coming off a good weekend. I think our team grew up a lot.” Last weekend the Wildcats split its games by defeating UCLA and losing to USC. Arizona holds a 1-2 conference record entering the Oregon trip, but Butts isn’t too worried. She said that the team is finally coming into its own, especially in crunch time. “In our previous games we folded

down the stretch,” Butts said. “We panicked, we made really bad plays and didn’t stay together as a team. But I thought this weekend we showed a lot of grit, a lot of toughness, a lot of heart. I think Shanita (Arnold)’s leadership on the floor at the end of the basketball game has been big for us.” Arizona’s offense lives off of finding opportunities to score in transition and doing it quickly. But if the Wildcats want to handle Oregon, they will need to play even faster than they are accustomed to, especially on defense. The Ducks rank second in the Pac12 in scoring offense, led by senior guard Jasmin Holliday who scores an average of 15.1 points per game. But, as Butts pointed out, they only shoot 39.3 percent from the field, good for eleventh in the conference.

“Oregon, in the past — they forced us to play even faster than we like to play,” Butts said. “But we enjoy that type of a game. We just got to do a better job of knocking down our layups. They’re still not shooting a great percentage so we have to finish with rebounds, but I think the number one thing is slowing down their transition game.” Arnold, Arizona’s starting point guard, will be a key cog in preventing Oregon’s prolific offense from running wild. She struggled to the tune of three points and three assists on 1-of-9 shooting in a loss to USC last weekend. Arnold had 10 points and nine assists in the win over UCLA, and is averaging 7.2 assists per game over the Wildcats’ last six wins. But in their last two losses, she’s dished out just two assists per game.

Colin Darland / Daily Wildcat

Arizona guard Shanita Arnold will set the pace for the Wildcats, which need to keep up with Oregon’s high-speed offense when the two meet in Eugene, Ore., tonight.

New book may shed light on Tiger MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

ORLANDO, Fla. — From all indications, “The Big Miss” has no juicy tidbits about any young misses who played a supporting role in Tiger Woods’ infamous downward spiral. Hank Haney has maintained since Woods’ sex scandal captured headlines in late 2009 that he had no inkling about the

OSU GUARD

FROM PAGE 7

While Arizona has to worry about Cunningham’s offense, the Wildcats also have to keep tabs on his quick hands, as he ranks third in the country in steals per game with 2.9. The junior out of Oakland, Calif., is developing into one of the more complete guards in the game, and he has major help running with him as well. Cunningham is certainly obstacle No. 1 on Arizona’s scouting report, but the Beavers have a handful of explosive players to help carry the load, most notably Cunningham’s backcourt mate, Ahmad Starks. With Cunningham taking on the role of primary ball handler and Starks more of a distributor and playmaker, Arizona has its hands full with Oregon State’s two-guard attack.

philandering behind the scenes. Some will find that hard to believe from a guy who spent the equivalent of 3 ½ months a year in Woods’ company. Even so, Woods’ former swing coach figures to have the curiosity factor going for him. Insight about Woods’ day-to-day life has been so sparse — carefully orchestrated by public appear-

ances — that any particulars are eagerly consumed. The book, co-authored by Golf Digest’s Jaime Diaz, will be available to the public on March 27 — one week before the Masters and not quite two years since Haney ended their sixyear association one day after the 2010 Players Championship. With Woods keeping such

a tight inner circle, Haney is among the very few whose recollections carry such authenticity. Though most people involved that intimately with Woods are compelled to sign a nondisclosure agreement, Haney told the Associated Press he “didn’t even have a contract” to serve as his instructor.

The Beavers lead the conference in multiple offensive categories including field goal percentage (49 percent), scoring offense (84.4 points per game), and are outscoring their opponents by the largest margin in the Pac-12 (+13). Junior Jared Cunningham leads the conference in

scoring, but he’s not the only offensive threat. The Beavers average five players in double figures and use 6-foot-7 forward Joe Burton and 6-foot8 forward Devon Collier to run their offense. “He’s really a big guy that has great hands,” Miller said of Burton. “He can really catch

anything. He’s a clever passer and makes their team tough to guard because very seldom do you have big guys that can pass the way he does. “He’s passing to players that can shoot the ball,” Miller continued. “They have a lot of fire power. They’re an explosive team.”

CUNNINGHAM’S LAST 5 VS. Stanford: 19 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 steals VS. Cal: 24 points, 5 assists, 1 rebound, two steals @ Washington State: 21 points, 4 assists, 4 steals @ Washington: 15 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal @ Chicago State: 15 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals

“They actually play completely differently. Ahmad is really a point guard who can shoot the ball really well and Jared is a shooting guard who actually is setting up our guys based on how he’s getting

played,” said Oregon State head coach Craig Robinson. “We’re much further ahead than I thought we’d be at this point in time because of the two of those guys.”

Top opposing guards SG Reggie Hamilton (Oakland) — 31 points, 6 assists and 7 TOs vs. UA SG Kenny Boynton (Florida) — 9 points, 3 assists, 2-11 shooting vs. UA PG Erving Walker (Florida) — 14 points, 5 assists, 3-16 shooting vs. UA PG Maurice Jones (USC) — 14 points, 3 steals, 3-13 shooting vs. UA PG Lazeric Jones (UCLA) — 13 points, 4 assists, 5-16 shooting vs. UA PG Kevin Pangos (Gonzaga) — 11 points, 8 assists, 1-9 shooting vs. UA

during that tenure, making a name for himself due to his work with the WVU d-line. Leftwich is the only nonWest Virginia hire of this batch and joins Calvin Magee and Tony Dews from Pittsburgh, both of who were hired before Christmas. Before last season with Pitt, Leftwich coached at Tulsa from 2003-06 then returned in 2010 after coaching at North Texas from 2007-09. He also coached at New Mexico State in 1992-93 and Stephen F. Austin from 1989-91. Casteel and Kirelawich are hoping to rebuild an Arizona defense that ranked dead last in the Pac-12 in total defense last season, while Leftwich will add his knowledge to what’s expected to be a potent Wildcat offense.
