Campus group looks to up organ donations A UA club registers more than 40 as organ donors during month-long contest between Arizona colleges, universities YARA ASKAR Arizona Daily Wildcat

STUDENTS FOR ORGAN DONATION club member Mariana Valencia volunteers in an effort to encourage students to register as organ donors. Valencia is the recipient of a donated liver.

A UA student club squared off against universities and colleges throughout the state to register as many organ and tissue donors as possible. Students for Organ Donation participated in the Donate Life Campus Challenge, which lasted from Sept. 12 to Oct. 12. While the numbers for the competition are not yet available, Arizona State University was announced the winner of the competition. Students for Organ Donation managed to sign up more than 40 students, despite issues with the Associated Students of the University of Arizona’s club recognition process. The goal of the challenge, which began in 2008, is to

inform students of how becoming an organ donor can save lives across the nation. College students are generally enthusiastic about volunteering and helping save lives, said Kris Patterson, a spokesperson for Donor Network for Arizona. “There is such passion in people for donation and we want to honor that passion while using it for good cause and saving lives,” Patterson said. Nathan Sherman, a psychology junior and president of the club, became more aware of the issue after he became a tissue recipient. While playing baseball for the UA when he was 18, Sherman injured his knee playing baseball and required donated tissue to help recover. After the injury, Sherman

Arabic sessions prep ROTC students YARA ASKAR Arizona Daily Wildcat

With the U.S. military still maintaining its role in the Middle East, the UA is offering ROTC students training in Arabic as preparation for deployment. Through Project Global Officers, or Project GO, the Middle Eastern Studies department receives financial benefits for offering ROTC students training in Arabic. Additional benefits in Arabic are provided to students through tutors who are native Arabic speakers and speaking partners. Students who want to take part in the project must be enrolled in an Arabic course, said Charles Mink, a Near Eastern studies graduate student and the program’s coordinator. While the classes emphasize reading and writing, the sessions offered through the program focus thoroughly on acquiring speaking skills, he added. “When they go overseas they may be dealing with populations that can be illiterate,” Mink said. “Their skills, as reading and writing, are not going to be as useful as speaking.” A proposal for Project GO was presented to the U.S. Department of Defense, which funds the program coordinated by the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Mink added.

ASUA, ASA aim to draw another WORTH crowd with second debate viewing NOTING RACHEL MCCLUSKEY Arizona Daily Wildcat

A debate viewing on Tuesday night hosted by ASUA and ASA in the Cellar Bistro will feature free food and giveaways in an effort to increase civic engagement among students. Giveaway prizes will include shirts, sunglasses and bottle openers outfitted with Arizona Students’ Association’s vote campaign slogan “Don’t just watch, vote 2012.” Organizers said the event is intended to be non-partisan, and strictly serve as a way to inform students about the election and current issues. “We don’t care who people vote for,” said ASA Director Dylan Duniho. “We just want people to be informed and to have access to information on both candidates so they can make their own personal opinion.” The Associated Students of the University of Arizona also aims to provide voter education to students so they can come and cast their ballots at the voting booth in the organization’s offices. “It’s going to be a really fun way to be in-the-know about what’s going on nationally,” said ASUA President Katy Murray. “I’m really

excited to get our students engaged not only locally, here, but what’s going on at the national level.” Jordan King, vice chairman of ASA’s board of directors, explained that it’s important for students to go to the event because they can receive a more well-rounded understanding of who they want to lead the country. “Now that we have registered many students [to vote], they will have an opportunity to really understand the stances of the two presidents,” King said. “Especially since the candidates will be given questions from the audience.” The organizations’ last presidential debate viewing as part of the Rad, White and Blue Block Party saw a turnout that filled all 150 chairs. Based on the turnout for the last viewing, Murray said she expects Tuesday’s debate showing to be large as well. Duniho suggests students show up at 5:30 p.m. to ensure a seat. “No matter who is deemed the winner of the debate, the real winner is the audience,” Duniho said. “If they show up and they get more informed from the debate and they cast a more educated vote, that’s great.”

said he was inspired to get involved and help raise awareness about the possibilities of saving lives through organ donation. “That made me count my blessing and made me realize how important it is and let others know how important this is,” he said. In the past month, Sherman led the challenge on campus in hopes of recruiting more potential doners than the other universities. The key part of the challenge was to let students know that more than 100,000 people all over the country are in need of organ donation, and that each registry can save a life. Despite the UA’s loss, Sherman is still determined to register more students by tabling on the UA Mall and partnering with Chi Omega sorority to bring more awareness to the cause, he said. Like Sherman, other students got involved in the club due to their own experiences with organ donation. Mariana Valencia, a junior studying psychology and nutrition, and treasure of the club, said she had a personal motivation to go out and get people to sign up after becoming a liver transplant recipient. “It saved my life and it’s a great cause,” she said. Being emotionally attached to the club and the challenge, Valencia said it is important for students to understand what the club is trying to pursue and understand the importance of becoming donors. The club has been tabling on the UA Mall this past month to register organ donors, and will continue to do so this week.

The three-year grant covers each tutor’s salary, the student partner financial compensation and 16 scholarships that allow students to receive additional training in Arabic courses. While the program focuses on minimizing the grammar part and emphasizing the verbal, the sessions also teach students about cultural aspects of the Arab world. One way to teach students about the culture is through comparison, Mink said. Students are asked to think of their own culture and compare it to the Arab culture, which keeps them from being self-centered, he said. “By virtue of comparison, they learn about different culture,” Mink said. Lauren Morford, a Naval ROTC cadet and mathematics freshman, said that the key role of the program is to facilitate students’ passion for making a difference in the world in taking the time to learn the language

before deployment. This shows a trust between the two countries that can help “build some burned bridges” and show respect between the two parties, Morford added. “It shows so much caring that we went out of our way to learn their language and not just mindlessly invade their land,” she said. Students spend one-on-one time with their tutors for an hour once a week, and spend an additional hour with their speaking partners. Currently, the program has 13 students enrolled along with two tutors and 13 speaking partners. David Forsythe, an Air Force ROTC cadet and Near Eastern studies junior, said although learning a new language has been difficult, it has been an interesting experience for him. Through the sessions, Forsythe said, he has gained a new perspective about Middle Eastern culture. “The sessions are very practical and give me the authentic practice to speak and interact with a [native] speaker,” he said.

CAMPUS CALENDAR Tuesday, Oct. 16

WASHINGTON — Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney enjoyed a surge of donations in September, raking in $170 million for the month — a major cash infusion that is helping finance a deluge of advertising by his campaign in the final weeks of the White House contest. Romney came close to matching the $181 million that President Barack Obama raised last month — and he did so during a rocky period for his candidacy and before his performance in the Oct. 3 debate, an event that greatly energized the Republican base. Romney campaign officials indicated Monday that October was shaping to be even better on the money front. Spokeswoman Andrea Saul tweeted that the campaign raised more than $27 million in small donations online during the first two weeks, better than any month so far. The rapid pace with which the former Massachusetts governor brought in contributions in September puts him on track to join Obama in raising more than a record $1 billion for his presidential bid by Election Day. As of Sept. 30, Romney had pulled in nearly $839 million through his campaign, the Republican National Committee and a joint fundraising committee, according to Federal Election Commission data and the Campaign Finance Institute. Obama’s campaign and affiliated committees had raised $947 million by the end of September. Romney’s most recent fundraising haul came when he

Police brutality still common in Egypt even under Morsi’s rule MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

UofA-Tube: Turning Language Students into Filmmakers

CAIRO — Police brutality is as common under newly elected President Mohammed Morsi as it was under the regime of Hosni Mubarak, a new study of incidents has found, raising questions about whether the uprising that toppled Mubarak and gave rise to the first democratic elections in Egypt’s history has had any impact on the issue that triggered the anti-Mubarak revolt. The Nadim Center for the Rehabilitation of Victims of Violence, a nearly 20-year-old Egyptian organization that studies victim’s issues, found more than 200 cases of police brutality during the first 100 days of Morsi’s presidency, according to the report, which was released earlier this month. Police killed 34 people in police stations, public places or prisons since Morsi became president June 30, an independent newspaper tabulated, based on the Nadim Center’s detailed report. There were another 88 cases of torture and seven cases of sexual assault. The numbers are similar to those under Mubarak because officials in the new government so far have made no effort to reform police institutions,

was on the ropes over a leaked videotape of comments he made suggesting that Obama had the support of 47 percent of the country because they depend on government aid. The tape was seized upon by Democrats, who featured Romney’s remarks in a series of ads that attacked him as a wealthy businessman indifferent to the needs of the middle class. As Romney struggled to explain the comments, he spent much of the month attending a flurry of fundraisers, leading some Republicans to express concern that he was not holding sufficient public events. But his cultivation of donors appeared to pay off. As of the end of September, his campaign and joint committees had $191 million on hand to finance the final stretch of the race. Obama’s campaign has not yet revealed its most recent cash-on-hand figure, but it ended August with more than $125 million in the bank. “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are offering voters a vision for our country that will grow the economy, increase incomes, and bring relief to the middle class,” said Romney’s national finance chairman Spencer Zwick in statement Monday announcing September’s fundraising total. “That is why we are seeing such strong support from donors across the country.” The campaign has also aggressively courted major donors, who have financed a larger share of Romney’s bid than Obama’s. On Monday, the top contributors to the GOP candidate assembled at the Waldorf Astoria in New York for a three-day donor retreat that includes a gala reception aboard the USS Intrepid featuring Ryan, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump.

according to the center. “It’s the same system because there is no political will to change” police practices, Magda Adly, the center’s director, told McClatchy Newspapers on Monday. “It’s not enough to change the heads of institutions because they were trained in a school that does not respect humanity. … Those practices will continue.” The 52-page Nadim Center report lists in graphic detail the incidents, breaking them down day by day of Morsi’s tenure. There are stories of kidnappings, police running over women and photos of men showing the scars of alleged police beatings. But there is no count. Rather it is a synopsis of brutality reports from around the country. Adly said the details came from published accounts, legal proceedings or testimony. She said she doubted it was comprehensive. “The actual number of cases only God knows,” Adly said. Last year’s uprising to oust Mubarak began as a protest against police brutality. Among the most famous cases was the death of Khaild Said, a 28-year-old Egyptian, whose fatal 2010 beating by police, captured in a photo of his disfigured face spread across the nation, emboldened a national movement against police brutality.

Clinton takes responsibility for Lybia MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

WASHINGTON — As criticism mounted on the Obama administration, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton acted Monday to shield the president from blame for the deadly September attack on a U.S. mission in Libya, saying that any fault lies with her as America’s top diplomat. “I take responsibility,” Clinton told a CNN interviewer during a trip to Peru. U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed Sept. 11 when dozens of heavily armed men drove up in a convoy and attacked and burned the thinly protected U.S. diplomatic mission and a nearby annex in Benghazi. Two State Department security officers who served in Libya this year told a House oversight hearing last week that they had requested an extension of a 16-member military team at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, several hundred miles away from Benghazi, but that mid-level State Department officers in Washington had rejected the request. In addition to the congressional probe, the State Department has convened a formal review of the assault, and the FBI has sent agents to Libya to conduct a criminal investigation.

Though the incident could mar Clinton’s record as chief diplomat, Republicans in Congress and on the campaign trail have raised few questions about her role. They have charged instead that the failure to protect the diplomatic mission reflects a broader failure of foreign policy by Obama as he runs for reelection. Clinton has kept a generally low profile on the issue and on Friday she declined to answer a reporter’s question about precisely what she was doing during the attack. On Monday, Clinton portrayed the mounting criticism as motivated by political partisanship. “I want to avoid some kind of political gotcha,” she said. She said Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were not involved in decisions about the level of security for diplomats in Libya, a country that has been overflowing with weapons since an armed insurgency toppled and killed former leader Moammar Gadhafi last year. At the vice presidential debate last Thursday, Biden said that “we didn’t know” of any requests for beefedup security. After GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney accused Biden the next day of hiding the truth, administration officials clarified that the request was handled by mid-level officials at the State Department, not the White House.

Wildlife groups threaten lawsuit over Great Lakes wolf endangerment listing MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

MINNEAPOLIS — Two national wildlife protection groups said Monday that they will file suit to return the Great Lakes wolf to the endangered species list, and they asked that both Minnesota and Wisconsin suspend their wolf hunts. The Humane Society of the United States and The Fund for Animals served notice that they will file suit against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. “The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service put faith in the state wildlife agencies to responsibly manage wolf populations,” said Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO for The Humane Society. “But their overzealous and extreme plans to allow for trophy hunting and recreational trapping immediately after de-listing demonstrate that such confidence was unwarranted.” He said that Minnesota failed to keep its promise to wait five years after delisting before authorizing a hunt. In Wisconsin, state officials have set a quota that equals “roughly 24 percent”

of the population in the state, he said. The groups Monday filed the 60-day notice of their intent to sue over the rule required under the Endangered Species Act. If the federal agency does not reconsider the delisting rule over the next 60 days, the groups will ask a federal court to reinstate federal protection for gray wolves in the western Great Lakes region. In other legal action Monday, two wildlife groups have asked the Minnesota Supreme Court to stop the state’s first managed wolf that begins Nov. 3, arguing that the lower court was wrong when it ruled last week that the killing of 400 wolves would not cause irreparable harm. The two groups filed suit against the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources claiming that state officials violated their own rules when they failed to give the public adequate chance to weigh in on the state’s hunting plan. The appeals court ruled last week that the case could go forward, but it refused to grant an injunction that would stop the hunt while the case is pending. But without it, the hunt will be over before the legal challenge

is even heard, said Collette Adkins Giese, an attorney for the Center for Biological Diversity, one of the wildlife groups that filed suit. “I am hopeful that the Supreme Court will recognize what the Court of Appeals did not — that the shooting and trapping of 400 wolves is an irreversible harm,” said Giese. “Rushing to open a hunt this fall, the DNR slammed the door on meaningful public participation in a controversial management decision about wolf hunting and trapping.” The appeals court said that the state legislature, not the DNR, was responsible for ordering the hunt. And DNR officials that there has been plenty of opportunity for public comment through the legislative process and other means. They also say that with a population ofp 4,000 wolves in the state, a quota of 400 is conservative and will not harm the population. The DNR will issue wolf hunting and trapping licenses to 6,000 hunters. The second group is Howling for Wolves, which is behind the anti-hunt billboard and media campaign in the Twin Cities and Duluth.

Fortune favors the bold among journalists Andres Dominguez Arizona Daily Wildcat

W

e often think of journalists struggling against oppressive governments while dealing with threats and violence. Some of these countries include Syria, China, Iran, Sudan and most recently, Mexico. The drug war that has engulfed the border cities for six years brings to mind immigration, drug and human smuggling and cross-border violence. Further down the list is freedom of the press. This year, the UA School of Journalism presented the annual John Peter and Anna Catherine Zenger Award to two journalists who stand for freedom of speech: Rocío Gallegos Rodríguez and Sandra Rodríguez Nieto, for their work covering violence against women, drug cartels and related crimes for El Diario de Juárez. Juárez has been a center for border violence for years, and Mexico has been labeled “the most dangerous place in the world for journalists.” Since the war on drugs began in 2006, 67 journalists have been killed in Mexico. Many more are threatened, harassed and intimidated. But Gallegos and Rodríguez represent the struggle for freedom of the press with their struggles through the threats and harassment they receive, as well as a non-responsive government that wages a war in which it ignores its own people. This should be a standard that journalists should strive for, regardless of how free or oppressed the media is in their home countries, because in the future these roles could be reversed. A perfect example is the U.S., and just beyond the southern border of Mexico. In the 1970s and 1980s, Latin America was one of the worst places a journalist could be located. With the continent covered by military dictatorships and oppressive regimes, journalists and other political activists were sometimes “disappeared” at the hands of the government, and often were never seen or heard from again. Since those governments fell in the late 1980s, freedom of the press has certainly not flourished in Central or South America, but it has taken significant steps toward achieving a system where information flows freely. Press freedom in the U.S. seems to be trending the other way, unfortunately. This year, the U.S. fell 27 places to 47th in press freedom in rankings by Reporters Without Borders. This is mainly “owing to the many arrests of journalists covering Occupy Wall Street protests,” according to the organization. There are other factors that should worry citizens about the impending fate of free information — increasingly limited access to government documents due to national security issues (perceived or real), increasing self-censorship and the recently developed phenomena of sources expecting to be anonymous instead of anonymity being an agreement under rare circumstances. To keep journalism from declining in the U.S., reporters should look to figures like Gallegos and Rodríguez. Even though, regrettably, the U.S. government has been less responsive to the press, it is a much easier government to deal with than with Mexico’s. Reporters should be able to make bold decisions in order to protect the profession, and not worry about arrests, the self-censorship culture, or even governmental niceties (“We respectfully ask you not to print this”). If journalists can follow Gallegos and Rodríguez’s examples by being bold and accountable not to the government, but to readers, viewers and citizens, the U.S. press can rise from being one of America’s least trusted institutions to one of the highest. — Andres Dominguez is a senior studying journalism and political science.

Prop 200 challenge illustrates complexity of voting process Jason Krell Arizona Daily Wildcat

A

mericans have fought countless battles over the right to vote, and now Arizona is embroiled in another battle. This time it involves Proposition 200, passed in 2004 by Arizona voters, which (among other things) requires those who want to register to vote to provide documentation of citizenship. Immediately after Prop 200 was passed, advocacy groups for Latinos, Native Americans and others filed lawsuits challenging its legality. A three-judge panel initially sided with Arizona, but a secondary panel reversed the ruling and blocked the registration requirement. Following that, judges decided to kick the case all the way to the top, and now the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear the appeal in February.

As for whether either side has ground to stand on, it’s hard to say. Frankly, both sides make a legitimate argument. The Arizona Legislature, as it often does, wants to keep undocumented immigrants from being involved in a country that they are not a citizen of — which is fair. It made sense to fight for universal suffrage so that black people and women could vote, but no one can honestly expect someone who is in the country illegally to be given that same privilege. Advocate groups also have a point worth considering, namely that poor families might not have the documentation required to prove citizenship, despite the fact that they are indeed citizens. Currently, citizens in this situation can register using the federal voter

Alumni have tried to lodge complaints (about Faith Christian Church). However, the Dean requires complaints to come from current students. I encourage any and all current students to talk to the Dean’s office about lodging a formal complaint. Another reason why complaints are hard is because the church has established clubs through current students. The university has already kicked the church off the U Of A campus...for multiple reasons. The clubs I know of are linked on the cult’s website...Native Nations in Christ...there were others too. — Alumni The day I realized their manipulation was intentional was the day I could start healing. Steve and the other cult leaders know enough scripture to be able to manipulate it just the right way to abuse people with it. I rest on the scripture where God specifically addresses judgment for church leaders. I will never attend a church where leaders don’t have an ounce of theological training. I encourage others to run (not walk) as far away from FCC and its offshoot cults immediately. Find a healthy, Godly church. — UA Alum

Police Beat KYLE MITTAN Arizona Daily Wildcat

Parking garage Batman

A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to the Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall in reference to a report of a theft at 12:02 p.m. on Oct. 10. The student who filed the report said he lost his cellphone. When he called it, an unknown man answered the phone and said, “You stole something from me. You know what it was.” The man on the other end also demanded that the student give him $50 in exchange for the phone, and said he would meet the student at 2 p.m. on the third floor of the Sixth Street Parking Garage. The officer instructed the student to arrange the meeting. The first officer, along with a second, arrived at the garage at 1:40 p.m. and observed the third floor elevators of the garage. At 2:05 p.m., the first officer saw two men approaching the east elevator and appeared to be looking for someone. The men then walked toward the east elevator. The men then walked back to the west elevator, then back to the east elevator once again. When they started walking, the two officers began approaching from either side. One man immediately stopped and placed a black cellphone on the ground. The other man started to walk away, but stopped when he noticed officers coming from both sides. Both men were detained, and officers conducted individual interviews. The individual who had the phone, a UA student, explained that he found it the day before at the garage, sitting on a ledge. He had been looking for his wallet, and when he found it, he noticed that $50 were missing from it. The student explained that the person who took the money from his wallet was the owner of the cellphone, and that he would give the phone back once he got his money back. The student refused to answer further questions. The student was cited for theft by control of lost property and the officer returned the cellphone to the owner.

Theives from the ceiling

A UAPD officer went to the Civil Engineering building to check out reports of a burglary at 2:17 p.m. on Oct. 11. When the officer arrived, he met with the first university employee who filed the report. The employee said he had noticed damage to the ceiling right outside his office, which had occurred overnight, and that remains from the ceiling were on the floor. The rails that hold up the tiles were also damaged. The employee told the officer that that it looked like someone had unsuccessfully tried to gain entry into his office. He added that someone had broken into the building in the past by climbing over a wall from the outside and entering through the ceiling tiles. When investigating the area, the officer found black marks along an exterior wall of the building that looked like they could have come from shoes. The officer then responded to the third floor, where he made contact with the university employee who filed the second report. The employee said that room 324J had been broken into between 10 p.m. on Oct. 10 and 7 a.m. on Oct 11. The employee explained that someone had scaled the outer wall of the building and come into the lab through the ceiling tiles. Missing from the room were a computer mouse, headphones, some USB cables and a software access USB device. The employee explained that the items totaled a value of about $4,500, but because the USB device could not be used, it had no value to the person who took it. The officer took photographs of the damage, and borrowed a ladder from materials management to photograph the ceiling tiles in room 324J. The officer added that because the area was dusty, he wasn’t able to obtain fingerprints.

n the last few years, the Arizona, UCLA and Indiana basketball programs have been a shell of their former selves, at least in terms of the expectations that go with being three of the most storied programs in college basketball. This year, though, all three look to be returning to top-notch basketball, and their simultaneous revivals couldn’t be better for the sport. The three programs are all consensus top-20 teams entering the 2012-2013 season, with the Hoosiers taking the No. 1 overall spot in the Sporting News preseason poll and Arizona and UCLA placing eighth and 11th, respectively. The teams’ hiatus from basketball royalty haven’t been the identical to each other or even long, considering UCLA made its last of three straight Final Fours in 2008. And yes, Arizona was a shot away from the Final Four two years ago, and Indiana made the Sweet Sixteen last year, but ever since the retirements of hall-of-fame coaches Bob Knight and Lute Olson and the early departures of Kevin Love and Russell Westbrook, the quality of the three blueblood programs has been a far cry from their heyday. Unlike college football, where the continual dominance of certain teams — SEC, please stand up — can get frustrating for casual fans and neutral observers, basketball is at its best when history’s greats are right where they should be. Not only can front-runners and bandwagoners rejoice this season, but even real fans of the sport can appreciate seeing schools like Indiana, Kentucky and UCLA on the national ticker. This isn’t just because it’s enjoyable to see the Goliaths fall, but the level of play increases when the traditional powers reign supreme. Ever since the NBA instituted its requirement for players to stay a minimum of one year in college, the parity in basketball has

FORWARDS SOLOMON HILL, Kevin Parrom and Max Wiepking are the last members left in head coach Sean Miller’s first recruiting class and are expected to be leaders for this year’s squad.

CAMERON MOON Arizona Daily Wildcat

Arizona basketball coach Sean Miller frequently talks and tweets about building a “players” program. He instills this mindset in freshmen before they step on campus, so that by the time they’re seniors they can instruct younger players in the same way Miller taught them. No class in a coach’s recruiting career is as important as the first one at his new school. Without that first group of players buying into what a newly hired coach wants to teach, it’s hard to succeed. There may only be three left, but Arizona’s Solomon Hill, Kevin Parrom and Max Wiepking are the last of Miller’s 2009 recruiting class

and the glue that is going to hold the Wildcats together. “When we came in our freshman year, it was all new to everybody,” Wiepking said. “No one knew much about Coach Miller or his system.” Miller’s first class proved to be vital in Arizona’s recent past, and their present and future successes rests not with this year’s talented corps of freshmen, but on the shoulders of three players who have been through the fire. As freshmen, the three Wildcats were inexperienced, and underclassmen made up 70 percent of the Wildcats’ minutes played that year. Arizona struggled to a 16-14 record, breaking its streak of 25 consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournament. “Freshman year we were still trying to figure

everything out,” Wiepking said. “We did as well as we could that year.” Hill, Parrom and Wiepking are only half of a senior class that included forward Derrick Williams, center Kyryl Natyazhko and guard Momo Jones. Williams left for the NBA after his sophomore season, Jones transferred to Iona before last season and Natyazhko left the UA to pursue a professional career in Europe. As sophomores, a 30-win season and Elite Eight appearance helped to erase some of the struggles from their first go-around as Wildcats, but the process was ahead of schedule. “Things take time,” Miller said. ”A year ago, when I sat here coming off of an Elite

Right to left: Lavine switches sides JAMES KELLEY Arizona Daily Wildcat

A

fter about 14 years of batting and throwing right handed, Arizona softball player Alex Lavine has made the switch to to the left side. Lavine, a junior utility, was Pac-10 All-Freshman honorable mention in 2011 but suffered a sophomore slump at the plate in 2012. “My righty wasn’t really working, and [the switch is] just something that is best for the team and best for me,” Lavine said. “So I’m fast and I became a slapper.” In 2011 she started 44 games at short stop, but last season she only started four in right field. “We were looking at some more opportunities for her offensively to utilize her speed,” head coach Mike Candrea said. “She’s a good base runner.” On Sunday against Pima, Lavine went 3-for-3 and scored two runs. “It’s pretty different,” Lavine said. “I was ambidextrous when I was younger, so it’s a little easier for me, but not much.” Lavine throws right-handed, but writes with her left. At six years old, Lavine changed from switch hitter and switch thrower to full-time righty in both disciplines. Lavine is not only switching from righty to lefty, she is also going from the stationary batting stance to slap hitting, running toward first as she swings. “It’s been pretty difficult,” Lavine said. “It’s hard to go

UTILITY PLAYER Alex Lavine is ambidextrous, so her transition from righty to lefty has been a smooth one.

from the hitting aspect to the slapping aspect and just trying to hit everything into the ground, but I’ve enjoyed it. I can do a lot more now so I like it a lot better.”

Candrea said it is rare for a junior in college to switch, but Lavine isn’t worried. “I had a few people try to talk me out of it and tell me that it was

too late, I wouldn’t be able to do it,” Lavine said, “but I just really pushed myself to go out and get better every day and get better with my slapping and I just want

to help contribute to the team.” Lavine made the switch in June, working with her dad and sister on it. Candrea thinks she can succeed. “From the right side she wasn’t a bad hitter, but I just think that we weren’t able to utilize her speed as much,” Candrea said. “So we figure right now if we can get her to put the ball on the ground and utilize her speed, we may be able to buy some more base hits for her.” Lavine went 2-2 against Yavapai in Arizona’s second fall season game and she led the team in batting average on the first day of fall ball, hitting .667. Candrea has been impressed with her other switch, to the outfield. “Defensively, right now, I’m really pleased with her,” Candrea said. “I think she has really developed into a really solid outfielder and gets good jumps on the ball.” Lavine played in 41 games in 2012, coming in 36 times as a defensive replacement. She started four games in right field and she batted .125 in 24 at bats. “I just don’t think I had the confidence that I had my freshman year and that’s definitely changed now that I’m a lefty,” Lavine said. “I really just want to get on base and I have so much more confidence because I can do so much now.” She did however hit a two-out, two-strike three-run game tying home run in the bottom of the seventh inning against San Diego State on Mar. 28 for a five run comeback.

FOOTBALL NOTES

Arizona has a clean slate after bye week

7

CAMERON MOON Arizona Daily Wildcat

Because Arizona’s soaring expectations have been grounded again, the team (3-3, 0-3 Pac-12) is getting a fresh start to its season. After dropping three straight Pac-12 contests, the Wildcats had a bye last week and used the time to not only heal physically, but mentally. Arizona’s has yet to play its entire Pac-12 South schedule, meaning the Wildcats’ 0-3 start in conference play does not end Arizona’s season where it stands. “I don’t know, I’d like to think of is as a clean slate, rather than a second half,” Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez said Monday. “There was some good, some bad, but a lot to learn from. I think our guys understand that.” Of its three losses, the only game Arizona didn’t keep close was the 49-0 drubbing at Oregon a month ago. Since then, the Wildcats have suffered injuries at quarterback, safety, wide receiver, linebacker and along the offensive and defensive line. “The way these injuries are, some of these just take time to heal up, unfortunately,” Rodriguez said. So while the Wildcats may not be getting every player on the injury report back by Saturday for their game against Washington, Arizona does have the opportunity to put the last six games behind them and finish a completely different team.

Familiar feeling

LARRY HOGAN/ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Rodriguez has not shied away from referring to his team as small this season, especially on defense. The problem with being so small is that, when teams like Stanford use two tight ends that could both suit up on college basketball courts, the Wildcats are often overmatched and pay for it on the scoreboard. They face the same test this weekend in 6-foot-6-inch, 266-pound Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who is third on his team with 538 receiving yards and has six touchdowns. “We have to try and get a couple guys on him whenever he’s in route,” linebacker Jake Fischer said. “The last game, we played [Stanford’s] tight ends very well. We can’t make it easy on him.” Stanford’s tight ends combined for 205 yards and two touchdowns on the Wildcats defense.

RUNNING BACK KA’DEEM CAREY said the bye week marked the end of Arizona’s first half of the season. Linebacker Jake Fischer believes the UA can still win the Pac-12 South.

Q&A: Hazzard could strike at any moment ZACK ROSENBLATT Arizona Daily Wildcat

The Arizona basketball team has received a lot of publicity, and rightfully so, for it’s highly-touted recruiting class: Kaleb Tarczewski, Brandon Ashley, Grant Jerrett and Gabe York make up the No. 3 recruiting class in the nation. The Wildcats new starting point guard, Mark Lyons, is a talented transfer from Xavier. There’s also point guard T.J. McConnell and big man Matt Korcheck, who have to sit out the 2012-13 season due to transfer rules. That makes it easy to call Jacob Hazzard the forgotten man, especially considering his status as a walk-on guard. “Everyone is a part of what we do and is important,” head coach Sean Miller said. “Jacob and Max (Wiepking) and a few of the other walk-ons are crucial to our everyday success. He has done a great job up to this point.” Hazzard, who attended Loyola High School in Los Angeles, averaged 12.3 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 2.5 threepointers per game in his senior year of high school, where he played alongside five-star 2014 recruit Parker Jackson-Cartwright. According to Scout.com, the UA is one of nine schools in the running for the point guard. The Arizona Daily Wildcat spoke with Hazzard at Media Day. Daily Wildcat: Why did you decide to come to Arizona? Jacob Hazzard: The team here, the coaching staff and the facilities kind of sold me on my visit here, so I’m glad I came to a great team with a lot of potential. How does it feel to be a part of a team with such high expectations?

FOOTBALL NOTES, 10

It’s great. We work really hard in practice every day and our work pays off. We’re looking forward to the season and we just need to get going. I can’t wait to see how far we can go. What’s it like playing with [point guard] Mark Lyons? He’s very intense, a great role model and a great leader. It’s great to be behind him and learn from him and do what he can do. He makes me better and I try to make him better by playing tough “D”. He’s tough. Did you get any scholarship offers from other Division I schools? Not really. More D2, D3, so I knew this was definitely best for me. It’s Division I and a great school academically and athletically. What was the process like for joining the roster as a walk-on? I applied and got in, they contacted me. The coaches saw me play a couple of times and they came to see me and then they just made it happen. What was it like when they contacted you? I was shocked. It was a phone call. My coach had told me they were recruiting me and I was like ‘That’s crazy’. I had just got the [acceptance] letter the other day and I was just like wow what a coincidence. It was just kind of fate for me to come here. How was it when you walked into practice for the first time and saw guys like Kaleb Tarczewski (the 7-foot freshman center)? That’s college basketball. Its my dream to play college basketball, so I was a little skeptical at first. I didn’t know what to expect, but I’m used it. I’ve acclimated to the game. It’s just basketball now. There are a lot of talented guards on the roster with guys like Mark Lyons and Nick Johnson, so playing time will be hard to come by. How do you keep fresh on the bench in case you’re needed? I’m always ready. I’m ready right now if I need to. I just work hard in practice every day, and I try to get better and maybe get some minutes. If not I just get everyone else better and try to just stay ready for the games. If we win, that’s all I really care about. Playing time doesn’t have much to do with it. Is there anyone on the team you’re closest with? Probably Grant [Jerrett] and Brandon [Ashley], I’m cool with them. We were all here in the summer together since we’re all freshmen,so we bonded. Theres also Q [Quinton Crawford] and Drew [Mellon], some other walk-ons that I’ve been chilling with

LARRY HOGAN/ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

JACOB HAZZARD, a walk-on guard from California, is ready to play when the UA needs him.

in practice and stuff. The whole team is cool. Also my boy T.J. [transfer point guard T.J. McConnell]. They’ve been great and welcoming. Since the team is so deep and talented, what are practices like? It gets really competitive. You never want to lose in general, but you never want to lose in practice either, because any player can have your spot. So you try to go at everybody, and on the better days it gets really competitive and really loud. But at the end of the day we’re all one team. What do you bring to the table as a player? I’m definitely a shooter. I can knock down threes when I need to. As a defender I’m pretty quick on the ball. I can just be a ball hawk.

Eight and 30 wins, a Pac-10 regular season championship — those are really special things. If that happens one time in a decade at many places or for a particular group it’s like, ‘wow.’ “I think because that happened so early here it was almost assumed that that is how it would be from this point on. We really had some things that we needed to work out.” Expectations for Arizona basketball entering last season were high — not only on campus, but thanks to the Elite Eight appearance, there were national expectations to live up to as well. The Wildcats were ranked No. 18 in the preseason, but a 23-12 finish and firstround NIT loss to Bucknell suggested that the Wildcats had fallen behind. “Without that first recruiting class, who knows what happens with that Elite Eight run?” Hill said. “It’s a great thing knowing that me and Kevin [Parrom] — some things happened to some guys, some guys ended up leaving, Derrick [Williams] was blessed to go No. 2 — but we understand that this is our last time to make an impact on that first class and be remembered. Miller’s trio of original seniors will undoubtedly have their chance to leave their mark, and will be expected to in a season that has once again, not only has the campus buzzing, but the focus of national media. “I was here when things weren’t going so well,” Parrom said. “I was here through it all, through the ups and downs. This year should be great and I’m glad to be a part of it.”

Football Notes from page 7

“We struggle with big, physical, receivertype tight ends. We have to be competitive and make a play on the ball,” Rodriguez said.

Red zone struggles continue on defense

Against Oregon last month, the Wildcats ventured into the red zone as an offense six times and produced zero points. Against Stanford, Arizona’s defense allowed the Cardinal to venture into the red zone six times for six scores. Fischer believes it comes down to one player making, or not making a play. “The past couple games, where one man would have done his job right, we could have potentially got a field goal,” Fischer said. “If we all played our responsibility, we could have held them to field goals. We have to hold up our end of the bargain going forward.”

become more prevalent. Instead of having powerhouse programs with four-year All-Americans, the top schools are recruiting one-and-done phenoms, giving schools like Butler the chance to make it to two straight national championships. The reemergence of Arizona and UCLA doesn’t necessarily mean the concentration of power will increase, or the level of play will improve, but at least the Pac-12 should finally have teams garnering national attention. The typically big recruiting classes from prestigious teams are finally coming to fruition this season and that concentration of talent at the top is refreshing. Even though some Arizona fans are hoping for UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad and Kyle Anderson to receive season-long suspensions due to reported recruiting violations — paving the way for the Wildcats to easily stroll to the Pac-12 crown — that’s not what anyone should want. Guaranteed championships don’t exist, anyway. Time and time again, sports have proven to be their most fun when classic rivalries are at their best. Watching two heavyweights like Arizona and UCLA battle it out for conference supremacy should inspire classic nostalgia and make the basketball traditionalists quiver with excitement. Not all is perfect, as stubbornness ruined the 42-year tradition of the Indiana-Kentucky and took away the premier game of the season. Still, fans can look forward to the blueblood battle between North Carolina and Indiana in late November and the conference play in the Pac-12 might finally be tolerable again. A concentration of power isn’t always a good thing in sports, but with the nature of college basketball, nothing makes for a better regular season than historic programs one-uping each other all year long. And don’t worry, you lovers of parity, the basketball season doesn’t end with a BCSinspired beauty contest. Even if the storied teams take the top seeds, the Cinderellas still have a chance to take home the nation’s top prize. — Kyle Johnson is a journalism junior.

Linebacker Ray Lewis out for season with triceps injury

MCclatchy tribune

LINEBACKER Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens will consider retirement after a tricep injury that cost him the 2012 season.

MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

BALTIMORE — What appeared to be a harmless tackle of Dallas Cowboys’ running back Phillip Tanner in the fourth quarter Sunday became the last play Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis will make this season. Lewis, 37 years old and a veteran of 17 NFL seasons, now has to decide whether the Ravens’ victory Sunday will also be the final game of his Hall of Fame career. A magnetic resonance imaging test taken Monday on Lewis’ right arm revealed the Ravens’ worst fear: a torn triceps, which is a rare but significant injury that will likely require surgery and an arduous six-month recovery period. Selected after offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden in the first round of the Ravens’ first draft in 1996, Lewis has become the face of the franchise, one of the NFL’s most respected players, and one of the most celebrated linebackers ever. Lewis always has been non-committal about retirement, saying only that he’ll know when it’s time. Ravens coach John Harbaugh declined to speculate on whether Lewis may have played his last game. “That’s for Ray to speak on,” Harbaugh said. “I admire Ray Lewis. I’ve said that many times. I think everybody in this room does. Everybody that knows him feels that way about him. I’m looking forward

to seeing what Ray says about that.” The Ravens are expected to put both Lewis and Lardarius Webb, their top cornerback who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the first quarter Sunday, on injured reserve as early as Tuesday, ending their seasons. Their losses further deplete a defense that is ranked an uncharacteristic 26th overall in the NFL and has allowed more than 200 yards rushing in back-to-back games for the first time in franchise history. “I would rather not characterize my emotions because I’m disappointed for those guys,” said Harbaugh whose team is 5-1, tied with the Houston Texans for the best in the AFC. “It doesn’t matter how I or someone else feels about it. It’s their thing. These are guys who put so much effort, heart and soul into what they do.” Harbaugh was given the news by Ravens’ head trainer Mark Smith just before 4 p.m. Monday. He hadn’t spoken to Lewis as of Monday afternoon, but Harbaugh sensed in his conversations with Lewis following Sunday’s game that it could be a serious injury. “He was worried about it,” Harbaugh said. “He said some things about his faith. He goes back to his faith, and he said some things that I’ll never forget. You look at his situation and what he’s accomplished and what he’s accomplished and what he was hoping to accomplish this year.
