THE DAILY WILDCAT Printing the news, sounding the alarm, and raising hell since 1899



At 75 years, it’s not this UA club’s first rodeo



NEWS - 6



The Daily Wildcat For Ben Saylor, an animal sciences junior, Rodeo Club is more than just a hobby. Rodeo is where it all began, and the UA club has the duty of reminding the community about its roots, Saylor, the club’s president, said. “I don’t want people to forget where we came from,” Saylor said. “I just feel like rodeo stems from the cattle industry and agriculture. I feel like I’m a part of something greater.” The idea of tradition is huge in the club, as the UA has the oldest intercollegiate rodeo club in the country, Saylor added. The club is celebrating its 75th year, honoring an enduring tradition of the Southwestern U.S. “It’s like a pastime,” Saylor said. “We started as a nation of agriculture and cattle.” Saylor said he believes the community should care about the country’s history, and he tries to make that a goal of the club. “The purpose of the club is to preserve Western heritage on the college campus,” Saylor said. “I think the biggest thing is word of mouth — talking to people about it is acknowledging the past.” Saylor added that he wants to make rodeo more prevalent on the college campus. “On the entertainment venue, rodeo is still huge, and it’s still just as

K-12 students test the water with Project WET


Adjuncts exploited in higher ed

A UA program is teaching K-12 students in the region about the benefits of water conservation. Arizona Project WET educates students, as well as their parents and teachers, about ways be more water efficient through its School Water Audit Program. With offices in Pima, Pinal and Maricopa counties, Arizona Project WET operates a similar program with Phoenix schools called the Water Investigations Program, which is funded by the Nature Conservancy. Like the WIP, the School Water Audit Program is intended to educate the public about Arizona water issues and ways to conserve. Based out of Tucson, SWAP will use volunteer UA students to conduct a water audit, an interactive presentation, at Canyon Del Oro High School later this month. “We’re trying to get students to connect with where the water that comes out of their faucet comes from,” said Kerry Schwartz, director of Arizona Project WET, a component of UA’s Water Resources Research Center. With a curriculum that spans the course of one school year, the WIP is intended to extend students’ knowledge about water conservation through water audits as well as with field trips in which pupils put their watersaving skills to the test. This type of practical education is becoming increasingly favored by teachers, Schwartz said. “The idea is not to do those things separately, but to do them together around a real-world, relevant issue,” Schwartz said. “That is what’s going to stimulate students to think creatively and critically.” The programs begin by educating the teachers participating in the project on the unique water issues facing Arizona and the Southwest as a whole. The teachers then “take that information to their classes,” said Tara Oakes, community coordinator for the WIP.

STUDENTS AT PARK Meadows Elementary measure the water collected in a test during a school water audit.

“It really is a ripple effect,” Oakes said. “If we can plant those ideas now with students that water is a limited resource that needs to be protected, then we can start making positive changes for the future.” To supplement the information the teachers provide to their students, Oakes gives presentations to teach students about topics like groundwater systems and waterefficient technology. “I always phrase it to the students as, ‘We’re doing an experiment at their school,’” Oakes said. During the water audit, the students examine water faucets in their school to determine their rates of flow. They then remove the aerator, the attachment at

the end of the faucet that houses a mesh screen, and replace it with a water-efficient one. The students then measure the new flow rate and compare it to the first measurement, Oakes said. “When you change that, it uses less water,” she said. ”Then we can calculate — just by changing that one little … piece of equipment, which costs a couple bucks — how much water you can actually save during a year.” Oakes said the replacement aerators frequently save schools hundreds of dollars in water costs. The culminating event of the WIP is a spring field trip in which students get to turn theory into practice.

he dirty little secret is that higher education is staffed with an insufficiently resourced, egregiously exploited, contingent ‘new faculty majority,’” writes Gary Rhoades, the director of the UA Center for the Study of Higher Education, in an op-ed piece for CNN. 49.3 percent of faculty work part-time and another 19 percent are full-time nontenuretrack, according to the op-ed. The vast majority of part-time adjunct professors receive a flat fee for every course they teach, get no benefits and have little to no job security. The tenuousness of an adjunct’s position, many of whom work on a semester-to-semester basis, leaves instructors wondering if they will still have a job in a few months. A current UA adjunct instructor who wished to remain anonymous described the process of waiting to find out if he would be employed next year — he said he didn’t even know if he would have a job in fall until early July, and even then the information he received was far from complete. “I had no idea how many sections I was getting,” he said. “I didn’t know what my contract looked like.” Only after a great deal of pestering did he learn that he was guaranteed at least two sections, or $8,000 a semester, with no benefits. “That’s not very much to live on,” he said. All part-time adjuncts must go through this waiting game and reapply for their jobs every year, the op-ed says. The exploitation of adjuncts

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler to host Golden Globes in 2014, 2015 MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

NEW YORK — Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will return to host the Golden Globes for the next two years, NBC announced Tuesday. “Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/ performers in our business and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season,” said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and latenight programming at NBC, which broadcasts the Golden Globes. “We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.” The duo hosted the show for the first time this year, earning rave reviews (from virtually everyone except Taylor Swift) for their playful


performance, which included an ongoing gag about a made-up film called “Dog President.” The telecast was a ratings success, too, generating 19.7 million viewers — the biggest Golden Globes audience in six years. Their banter was arguably the highlight of last month’s gloomy Emmys telecast. Both Poehler and Fey have longstanding ties to the peacock network, first as cast members on “Saturday Night Live,” then as stars of the series “Parks and Recreation” and “30 Rock,” respectively. Fey, who wrapped up her run on “30 Rock” in January, has a development deal with Universal Television, and has already sold a pilot to NBC. Poehler and Fey will return to the 71st annual Golden Globes on Jan. 12.

Congress’ extra Series of séances aims to see what’s hiding and settle legends of paranormal activity in iconic Tucson hotel



The Daily Wildcat



HOTEL CONGRESS’ ROOM 328 — the only room on the third floor that remained after a fire in 1934 — has been closed for the last 80 years. “The Room” invites 30 guests to attend a séance inside the room every Thursday night throughout the month of October.

Student finds outlet in Tucson theater

t nearly a century old, Hotel Congress has seen countless guests come and go — and it’s widely believed that some have never left. A series of séances on the hotel’s third floor invites guests to experience an area of the hotel that has remained closed off to the public for nearly 80 years. “The Room” aims to bring 30 guests into hotel room 328, and, with the help of local magicians The Brothers Macabre and Dr. Jonathan Arcane, find out if Hotel Congress has a few extra visitors. The event was inspired by the aftermath of a fire in 1934 that claimed nearly the entire third floor of the hotel — with the exception of room 328. Although no one was killed in the fire, the room remained unoccupied until recently, when the large swamp cooler that sat inside was removed, said David Slutes, the hotel’s entertainment director. The hotel is largely believed to be haunted, with some visitors finding strange figures in photos taken inside the hotel and others reporting sightings of a small girl on the second floor. As it has remained untouched since the fire, room 328 seems to carry an eerie presence for most who have been inside. “It’s weird,” Slutes said of the room. “You see how at one point it was a great room because it’s on the third floor … but it’s creepy. It’s super creepy because it’s just a lot of old stuff that hasn’t been touched for years.” The event brings 30 visitors inside the room, where the magicians lead an hour-and-a-half process to “channel the realm of the unliving,” said Kenny Stewart, one of the two magicians who make up The Brothers Macabre. The room, he said, serves as the “portal” to the other side. “Sitting in this room, basically we’re just sort of channeling those particular energies of people past,” Stewart said. “We’re basically conducting experiments.” Séances will be held at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., and

attendees will be given a break for champagne and hors d’oeuvres during each show before returning to the room for the second half. With half the month and two events already past, Slutes said the response to the event has been largely positive. “Everyone’s come out and said it’s a really good event,” Slutes said. “I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that it’s fairly intimate. … You get to be in the place; you get to be in this room; you get to feel it.” Stewart wouldn’t provide much description of the “manifestations” that presented themselves in past events, saying that he would leave the “movements in the background” up to the audience’s interpretation. “I think there’s a level of uncomfortability — definitely a level of dark puzzlement,” Stewart said. “For ‘The Room’ at Hotel Congress, no two shows have been the same.” “The Room” is part of the hotel’s goal to add a historic twist to the events it hosts, Slutes added. “It adds context and richness to everything,” he said. “You add real depth to these events, and people go away with a more substantial experience. This place exudes it, and not to talk about the building and the place you’re in and having such a unique venue would be a shame.”

IF YOU GO WHAT: “The Room” WHEN: Thursday, 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. WHERE: Hotel Congress, 311 E. Congress St. ADMISSION: $35 advance, $40 door

A man on vacation with his family at Walt Disney World has a mental break from reality as the park transforms into a menacing presence in “Escape from Tomorrow.” The film is unlike anything that’s ever been done before — for better rather than worse. The backstory behind the creation of “Escape from Tomorrow” is almost as interesting as the film itself. After the divorce of his parents, director Randy Moore spent a lot of time at Walt Disney World with his father. His relationship with his father broke down over time, and Moore eventually had a family of his own. When he took his children and his wife to Disneyland, he started to see the Disney theme park experience from a different perspective. Not only was the specter of the experiences he and his father shared present, but his wife, who is a native of central Asia and a foreigner to the Disney experience, found the park more disturbing than a psych ward. “Escape from Tomorrow” was filmed in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, without the permission of the parks, as the producers feared Disney would not approve of the film’s negative, surrealist interpretation of Mickey and friends. The crew kept their scripts on their phones, and the actors rehearsed their lines and actions in hotel rooms, knowing they could not rehearse in the actual parks without drawing attention to themselves. The film was shot on small, handheld cameras, and after Moore filmed the movie, he edited it in South Korea to prevent anyone remotely involved in the Hollywood film industry from learning that he had shot a feature-length film in the Disney parks without Disney’s permission. Jim (Roy Abramsohn) is with his family, wife Emily (Elena Schuber) and kids Sara (Katelynn Rodriguez) and Eliot (Jack Dalton), on vacation in Florida at Walt Disney World. At the hotel on the morning of their final day, Jim receives a phone call and is told that he’s been laid off. His relationship with his wife already seems strained, but when they go into the park, Jim starts to have weird visions, and his erratic behavior increases the tension. After he and his wife decide to split up and each take one kid through the park, Jim starts to follow two French girls who can’t be older than 15. A continuous string of strange events then unfolds throughout the day. The main attraction of the film is the Bizarro World spin on the Disney parks, and the film delivers the guilty pleasure in perfectly disconcerting surrealist fashion. The opening point-of-view shot puts the audience in the perspective of a rider on the famous Big Thunder Mountain Railroad as it innocently chugs along. Then, the person directly in front of the camera is decapitated at the big drop in the ride. While going through It’s a Small World with his family, Jim has sudden flashes of the saccharine faces of the animatronic puppets turning demonic, with huge, sharp teeth and menacing eyes. The scene resembles the hallucinogenic boat ride in “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” more than the actual Small World ride. There’s a laundry list of similar distortions, but I don’t want to spoil some of the better moments. Needless to say, the whole park takes on a sinister life of its own, as if it’s all one big conspiracy. Unfortunately, at times, the film’s aimlessness induces a sort of lull. The film doesn’t follow an


overarching plot so much as it simply wanders along, seemingly content to pick up different strands as they develop. If the movie is a theme park ride, then the end goes completely off the rails. Any sense of normalcy that the film had maintained (which is not very much) is completely jettisoned. It is certainly memorable, yet left many in the audience, myself included, scratching their heads. The film has something to say about the insincere nature of manufactured happiness and the unrealistic expectations it breeds, but the wacky ending makes the message difficult to parse. Dedicated, curious viewers might revisit the film for a second viewing. Destined to enter into the hallowed pantheon of cult films, “Escape from Tomorrow” presents “The Happiest Place on Earth” as hiding something much more menacing beneath. There are many more hits than misses, and the images here, like the nightmarish It’s A Small World, turn the home of everyone’s favorite anthropomorphic mouse inside-out. “Escape from Tomorrow” is currently playing at The Loft Cinema.

Access to education a privilege BY Fortesa Latifi

The Daily Wildcat


ast week marked the one-year anniversary of the horrific day that Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in Pakistan. In the year since the attempted murder, Yousafzai has published a book about her life, turned 16, been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and become an even more outspoken proponent of education. There are many lessons to be learned from her story, but the most important is that all of us, as UA students, are incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to be educated without fear, to live without threat to our lives and to learn without restrictions. The radical Islamic group targeted Yousafzai after she authored a blog detailing the difficulty of living under Shariah law, in constant danger from the Taliban who enforce it. Yousafzai grew up in the Swat Valley of Pakistan, where the Taliban rose to power and banned girls from attending school, even going so far as to burn some girls’ schools. “I didn’t want my future to be … imprisoned in my four walls and just cooking and giving birth,” she said in a recent interview with the BBC. Her situation, unfortunately, is still the reality for many women around the world. My own grandmothers were not allowed to attend school while growing up in Kosovo. As a result of the political and social factors that prevented them from being educated, they never learned how to read or write. They stayed at home and learned to cook and clean while their brothers went off to school each day. It’s tempting to say this is an outdated problem a generation removed from us, but I have aunts who suffered the same fate. My family is Albanian. It is important to note that this is not only an issue in the Middle East, but crosses borders of both ethnicity and religion. Today, in 2013, only 30 percent of girls around the world go to secondary school. Why is the world so reluctant to educate its women? Educating women introduces them to different ideas and schools of thought that inspire them to challenge traditionally held ideas like antiquated gender roles. Education enables women to empower themselves, to respect themselves as equal to men and to raise their voices against tyranny and discrimination, just like Yousafzai did. To the Taliban and other groups like it around the world, it is scary to think that women, who have been held down under their outdated and misogynistic laws for so long, are going to be able to put up a fight. Next time you catch yourself complaining about the homework you have to do or the test you have to prepare for, try to remember Yousafzai, who was shot pointblank in the head for speaking about a woman’s right to education. Remember how fortunate you are and make the most of the opportunity you’ve been given, not only for yourself, but for those who can only dream of it. It is not enough to recognize our privilege, though. Progress is a continual struggle — in this case, a struggle against thousands of years of oppression and chauvinism and unequal rights. We should use our privilege to help girls around the world gain access to education. The Malala Fund seeks to make these changes, and support for it and similar organizations can positively impact the world for generations to come. — Fortesa Latifi is a family studies senior. Follow her @dailywildcat CORRECTION The Oct. 13 article “Federal government should cut support of postal services” incorrectly stated that the U.S. Postal Service receives taxpayer money from Congress. Its operations are funded by selling products and services. Additionally, the Postal Service has never missed a retiree health benefits payment. Unlike other public or private entities, Congress began requiring the Postal Service to pre-fund future retiree health benefits in 2006, which increased its overall expenses. However, the Postal Service’s operational budget has recorded profits in the past three-quarters of this fiscal year and the Postal Service increased its revenue by 3.6 percent last quarter.

can negatively affect the learning environment for students. Although the adjunct professor emphasized this was only true for a minority of adjuncts, he said there are people “who purposely undermine the entire system to make sure that students are giving them high reviews [by] inflating grades [and] canceling class with a high level of frequency.” He said he believes that adjuncts can impose very little change because of the tenuousness of their positions, particularly without unionization. Talks of unionization have had trouble moving forward because some fear university pushback. “The reality is, if we try to voice our discomfort, the desire for better treatment, the university has the power to just can all of us,” the adjunct professor said. The situation is not much better for full-time nontenuretrack employees, as evidenced by former UA professor of Italian William Van Watson, who was unceremoniously let go in March after 13 years of loyal service to the university, which included two Distinguished Teaching Award nominations in the last five years. “I was earning less in real terms than at any time in my life since I was a graduate student,” Watson said about his salary, which had only increased 4 percent in the last eight years. Watson said that even though a large portion of the French and Italian department was vehemently opposed to his termination, administrative members of the College of Humanities ignored the actions of faculty members challenging the dismissal. Watson said that his department head, Fabian Alfie, refused to discuss the matter with faculty members in his department, and Dean Mary Wildner-Bassett dismissed a letter-writing campaign by faculty and students protesting the firing,

which included support from the American Association of Italian Studies. The dean declined to comment for this article. It would not be the last time the administration went over the heads of faculty members. “In August 2012, Alfie informed the faculty that the department ran a $40,000 surplus, which was then swept back up by the college administration,” Watson recalled. The anonymous adjunct said he is not surprised by these types of administrative hijinks anymore. “I understand what they [administration] do is important to the university,” he said, “but I just don’t understand how it can be that much more important than educating the students.” He is one of a growing number of academics who see the primary goal of the administration as gutting instructional programs. Looking at his department, the anonymous adjunct said, “It’s underutilized [and] underpaid. All of our faculty are underpaid. All the adjuncts are underpaid.” Yet tuition at public universities has more than tripled since 1980, trailing just after cigarettes as the product with the fastest rising price in the U.S. “You would think logically, eventually, people are going to realize this is not what we pay out the ass to go to college for,” the adjunct professor said. “We want good instructors who care about teaching.” The university is diverting resources from the individuals who provide the most value for a university student — the instructors — to a bloated and inefficient administrative staff that doesn’t have students’ best interests in mind. Instead of prioritizing spending on instructional services, universities are happy to trim their budgets by relying on ranks of adjunct lecturers who barely earn a livable wage. These cuts should be levied on administration, not instructors. In the last 40 years, the number of professors has

Fresh joint

Two UA students were charged with possession and use of marijuana on Oct. 9 at 12:43 a.m., after a University of Arizona Police Department aide reported seeing the students smoking on top of Cherry Avenue Parking Garage. One of the students was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. The aide told a UAPD officer that she saw the two students leaving the garage and heading north toward University Boulevard. The officer stopped the students at a parking lot on Cherry Avenue and had them lean against the front of his patrol car while he questioned them. The officer searched the students’ pockets, but didn’t find any marijuana or drug paraphernalia. The aide radioed the officer and said she had found rolling papers near a stairwell of the garage. A second officer went to the parking lot and kept an eye on the students while the first officer went to search the stairwell. The officer found a black plastic box with rolling papers and green flakes. The police aide found a burnt marijuana joint. The officer then went back to talk to the students. The officers spoke with each student separately. An officer showed one of the students what he’d found by the stairwell and asked if he’d been smoking, and the student said he hadn’t. The officer told the student to tell the truth. The student then confessed that he and the other student had been smoking in the parking garage. The students were cited and released and two code of conduct referrals were sent to the Dean of Students Office.

A UA student was arrested for shoplifting $103 worth of merchandise from the UofA Bookstore on Oct. 9 at 3:45 p.m. When the student was caught shoplifting from the bookstore, she was asked to wait in the bookstore’s conference room, but instead, she left on her bike. A UAPD officer caught up with the student at Gila Residence Hall and questioned her about the shoplifting incident. The student said she had returned the stolen items — a Sharpie pen, an HP ink cartridge and cleaning pads — when she was stopped by loss prevention employees. A UA employee told the officer he had seen other bookstore merchandise in the student’s shoulder bag. When asked about these additional items, the student said she had purchased laminated papers from the bookstore earlier that day. The student couldn’t provide a receipt but said she’d paid about $22 for the papers. The bookstore surveillance video showed no sign of the student being at the bookstore earlier. The student was cited and released on charges of shoplifting. A code of conduct referral will be sent to the Dean of Students and a victims rights will be sent to UA Risk Management.

4-H progresses beyond cows, cooking BY Jazmine Foster-Hall

The Daily Wildcat Local youth organization Arizona 4-H celebrated its 100th anniversary on Saturday, continuing its legacy of helping young children provide services to their community. Although Arizona 4-H has been around for a century, it is only in its fourth year of involvement on the UA campus, through the UA Collegiate 4-H Club. The club is a way to keep students involved who are too old to participate in the 4-H youth organization, according to Tina Christianson, administrative assistant at the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The UA club also volunteered at the centennial event. “Our collegiate 4-H group came in and helped a lot,” Christianson said, “volunteering at all the different areas that they could.” Matthew Olson, a senior studying fisheries, conservation and management, said he participated in Arizona 4-H for 10 years as a child. Like the youth organization, the collegiate club mostly participates in community service, Olson added. “We help local 4-H [youth] clubs with anything they need,” Olson said. “We do officer trainings in Cochise County and we help out at the Pima County Fair.” Olson said that while Arizona 4-H taught him responsibility, the collegiate 4-H club

all land-grant universities provide extended services to state programs, including Arizona 4-H. “4-H is just like another department at the university,” said Kirk Astroth, assistant dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the director of Arizona 4-H.

Astroth said the Arizona 4-H club has changed a lot during the past 100 years, adapting to fit the changing country. “4-H has mirrored the social and cultural changes of the United States,” Astroth said. “Today, the program is very involved in robotics and GPS and DNA testing.” Arizona 4-H has always been grounded in science, and also focuses on the current interests of the kids involved, Astroth said. Though the program has roots in agriculture, it is trying to branch away from this image. “When you say 4-H, people think cows or cooking,” Olson said. “It’s definitely progressed from that into urban areas, and more to science, technology, engineering and mathematics projects.” The program is also trying to expand into city areas, where there isn’t room to raise animals or do work in agriculture, according to Christianson. “A lot of clubs over the years have migrated to more inner-city type project areas,” Christianson said. “We’re migrating more to trying to bring the rural part into the inner city.” On the collegiate end, Astroth said the UA’s 4-H club is trying to have a bigger impact on the UA. “We bought a camp outside of Prescott two years ago,” Astroth said, “and we’ve opened that up to the university community to use.” — Follow Jazmine Foster-Hall @Jazz_Foster

UA: Don’t worry, be happy BY Stephanie Casanova The Daily Wildcat

A new UA lecture series looks to teach the Tucson community what it means to be happy. The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences is hosting the Downtown Lecture Series for the first time this year in an effort to engage the community with university research. The series features five speakers, all from different fields, who will bring unique perspectives on the way happiness is perceived. These free lectures will be held every fall semester, said Lydia Breunig, director of community outreach and special projects for the College of Social and Behavioral

years. This is not the only challenge the club must overcome, according to Saylor, who said rodeo faces a lot of criticism from animal rights organizations. Rodeo clubs like the one at the UA are accused of animal abuse and mistreatment, he said. “They say that our goal is to hurt animals, and injuries get taken out of context,” Saylor said. “Animals get hurt, but people get hurt more.

Nobody wants to hurt their animals, but we receive a lot of criticism.” Despite criticism, for some members, the UA Rodeo Club has served as a bonding experience. “I think all the events and friends I’ve made have been things I will never forget,” Scott said. “It will make me a better person.” — Follow Gabrielle Fernety @DailyWildcat

Bartanen, who is collaborating with the WIP for the third straight year, said that the program endows students with science skills that will be critical for them in the future. “It teaches them how to be problem solvers,” Bartanen said. “It teaches them how to think about real world issues and how their actions impact everybody else, and it gives kids a good opportunity to engage in science in a hands-on and meaningful way.” — Follow Mark Armao @MarkArmao

Pumped up Wildcats hit weights BY LUKE DELLA

The Daily Wildcat It’s 6:30 a.m. A dark and damp silence covers the Arizona campus. While most students are sleeping in, the LowellStevens Football Facility weight room is loud and full of life. The first group of Arizona football players is getting its day started by looking to improve in the weight room, which will translate onto the field. “Started from the bottom now I’m here,” said junior running back Ka’Deem Carey about his improvement in the weight room over the past two and a half years. Carey, who said he likes to listen to Drake while lifting, is one of the stronger Arizona football players. He said he weighed 185 pounds when he was a freshman and now weighs 206. “I can probably put up 275 with ease [on the bench press],” Carey said. Weight lifting is a skill football players take a lot of pride in. Sophomore running back Jared Baker holds the team records and highs in the Wildcats’ weight room. Baker’s strength came from discipline and the dedication to the system that the Arizona football training staff has put in place. Football players are given a recommended diet and meal plan, as well as a food every day that is regulated by the trainers. Supervisors are in the weight room helping players as well as giving them a weekly plan. For the most part, during the

Offense swings into Experienced baseball season early Stoudamire coaches team

The UA’s own Wilbur T. Wildcat is in 14th place in the Capitol One Mascot Challenge. This week he is facing Smokey the dog of the University of Tennessee.


The Daily Wildcat


DAMON STOUDAMIRE speaks at half time of the Red-Blue Game on Saturday at McKale Center.


The Daily Wildcat Sure, the sport here is basketball, but assistant coach Damon Stoudamire’s newest students of the game knew right away the UA had hit a home run hiring him as an assistant. Having played four years at Arizona and 13 in the NBA with four different teams, Stoudamire brings an uncontested amount of experience to the Wildcats’ coaching staff since being hired in May. “I was extremely excited to have such a high NBA player on the coaching staff because he knows things that a lot of other coaches don’t know,” freshman forward Aaron Gordon said. “Just about the flow of the game away from the X’s and O’s — he knows the little details to go from being good to being great.” Stoudamire, 40, is sixth on the Arizona all-time

scoring list with 1,849 points. He was arguably the most important piece to the 1993-94 Final Four squad, leading the team in minutes and assists while averaging its second-most points per game that season. The following year, Stoudamire ended his tenure in a Wildcats uniform a consensus All-American, co-Pac-10 Player of the Year as well as a John R. Wooden player of the year finalist. “He’s going to show me stuff that I need to work on and show me stuff that he used while he played here, and that’ll only help me,” senior point guard T.J. McConnell said. Drafted by Toronto with the seventh overall pick in the 1995 NBA Draft, Stoudamire was named Rookie of the Year after averaging 19 points per game and 9.3 assists per game. His 653 assists that season ranked fourth in the league.


Arizona baseball is four months from beginning its season, but it’s not too early for the Wildcats to start getting an idea of where their offense will stand come February. Arizona lost power hitters Brandon Dixon and Johnny Field when they were selected in the 2013 MLB FirstYear Player Draft and opted not to return as Wildcats for their senior year. Dixon signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Field with the Tampa Bay Rays. Last year, Dixon and Field alone accounted for 11 of the teams’ 13 home runs, 31 percent of its runs, and 32 percent of its total bases. With all of that production gone, it may seem Arizona has another rough season ahead. While it may be true that the Wildcats have all but lost their ability to consistently hit home runs, they return key offensive contributors who are expected to step up and lead a more balanced offensive threat. Juniors Joseph Maggi and Trent Gilbert and sophomore Kevin Newman will be among the leaders of Arizona’s offensive production. “We have a lot more action guys and a lot more power coming in with the young guys,” Maggi said. “I feel like we are meshing a lot better than last year with power to action guys. I think we will have better balance throughout the lineup this year. We will be working on making the most out of our at-bats and focusing on producing runs offensively, instead of swinging bats and scattering hits.” After starting in a slump, Maggi lit up and subsequently added 34 hits, leading the team in conference competition with a .388 average. If the upperclassman outfielder starts strong and stays consistent, Maggi can provide good pop in the middle of the lineup. Newman became the first freshman to ever take home the prestigious Cape Cod Baseball League’s batting title after getting 33 hits over 65 at bats in his last 17 games. Last year,



Arizona soccer is tied for first in the Pac-12 in goals with 28 total.


TRENT GILBERT prepares to swing against Alabama State on April 26. UA Baseball beat Alabama State 8-2.

Newman enjoyed a breakout season and was one of three freshmen on the Pac-12 All-Conference team. His performance is not expected to falter, and he should provide speed to the lineup, as he stole 11 times in his freshman campaign. The team’s focus this year is on bouncing back from last year’s troubles and making it to postseason. “We’ve definitely flushed last year and are looking forward to getting better every day,” Newman said. “We are looking better and swinging better, so watch out.” Gilbert and Newman represent the only returners who started all 55 games last year. Gilbert went from batting .272 in his freshman year to .344 last year, emerging as an offensive leader. During conference play, he led the team with 40 hits and 9 doubles. He provides consistent hits, speed on the base paths and increased run production for the Wildcats.

Freshman Rondae Hollis-Jefferson led the blue team with 18 points in the annual McDonald’s Red-Blue Game on Saturday. Arizona softball player Chelsea Goodacre had eight home runs during the past weekend, hitting three home runs in one game. Freshman forward Aaron Gordon’s 360-degree through-the-legs slamdunk was on fire, and he was named the champion for the 2013 dunk contest. Baseball head coach Andy Lopez’s triple bypass surgery went well and he is now at home looking forward to a fast recovery so he can be back on the field before the season begins in February. The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Raiders last Sunday and have won their first six games of the season. They’ll look to continue their winning streak when they face the Texans this upcoming Sunday. Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched seven scoreless innings during game 3 of the National League Championship Series on Monday night as the Dodgers defeated the Cardinals 3-0. Major league baseball player David Ortiz’s grand slam was a sight to see for Boston Red Sox fans during the eighth inning of game two of the American League Championship Series. That gland slam was the reason for the 6-5 Red Sox’s victory over the Detroit Tigers. Despite his 2-year-old son’s recent death, the Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson still suited up and played this past Sunday. TYLER BAKER/THE DAILY WILDCAT

Stoudamire was traded to his hometown Portland Trailblazers 49 games into the 1997-98 campaign, and he remained with the Trail Blazers for the next seven seasons. After a little over two seasons with Memphis, he finished his playing career under four-time NBA champion Gregg Popovich for San Antonio in 2008. “He’s at the point where I want to be at, so he’s definitely taught me a lot already,” sophomore guard Gabe York said. “The NBA is hopefully right around the corner for me in the next three years, so he’s taught me a lot already about going to the NBA and not going overseas and becoming a college assistant coach.” With a desire to still be involved in the game, Stoudamire returned to the Grizzlies in 2009 — this time with a clipboard. Memphis had its most successful

season in its history in 2010-11, going 46-36 when he was coach there. Stoudamire was most recently an assistant coach at the University of Memphis for two years under former Wildcat and Tigers head coach Josh Pastner. The Tigers won the Conference USA regular and postseason titles, with an overall record of 31-5 last season. Frequently referred to since his playing days as “Mighty Mouse,” Stoudamire is expected to inject a higher level of mental toughness to the program. “He has that grit,” junior guard Nick Johnson said. “He was always that guy as a player; he had a big heart and never backed down. So, he has a little bit of a grit that we lost with some of our players leaving last year. Definitely that and his

experience at an NBA level.” Stoudamire has earned nearly $100 million alone in NBA player salary and cherishes the atmosphere of a sold-out crowd at McKale Center. “I played on a lot of teams. I’ve played for a lot of coaches. I’ve played with a lot of great players; I’ve played with Hall-of-Fame players,” Stoudamire said in a soft, nostalgic tone to his audience of more than 14,000 last Saturday at halftime of the Red-Blue Game. “But the memories — and I hope this current team is listening. The memories that you have of college — [they] will never go away. Because if you go to the NBA, you will never get this right here. You’ll never get it.” — Follow Joey Putrelo @JoeyPutrelo

is the Muscle Milk provided after they lift. Putton said he doesn’t take Creatine, whey protein, caffeine pills or any kind of amino acids, which are all legal substances for Division I NCAA athletes. “It’s just not something that I feel I need,” Putton said. “I feel I can gain the same amount of strength with the organic food that they feed us and I can make.” Head coach Rich Rodriguez has called Carey the hungriest running back in the country, meaning he is one of the hardest college football players to tackle. Carey credits his tenacious lifting motivation to his success on the field. “Weight lifting is a lot of compound moves,” Carey said while showing how a bench press movement looks similar to a stiff-arm. “It starts in the weight room and translate to game. All the hard work I did with squats during the offseason have made my legs stronger to fight off leg tackles.” — Follow Luke Della @LukeDella
