Cyber security University places stronger focus on emerging field of cybersecurity through research grants
BY MARK ARMAO The Daily Wildcat
While the world we perceive occupies a physical space, the advent of the Internet and other technologies have caused many people to frequent a different type of place: cyberspace. But unlike the physical world, in which the police are a phone call away, the security of a web user is not guaranteed. Because hackers work day and night to exploit the Internet for personal gain, researchers at the UA have received multiple grants to explore the emerging field of
cybersecurity. “[Maintaining] cybersecurity has become a big problem for government, for industry and also for the general public,” said Hsinchun Chen, Regents’ professor and Thomas R. Brown Chair of Management and Technology in the Eller College of Management’s Management Information Systems Department. Chen is the principal investigator of two cybersecurity projects, both of which are funded by the National Science Foundation for a total of $5.4 million. One project will utilize “big data”
analytics in order to make sense of the covert world in which hackers operate, while the other will focus on training the cybersecurity professionals of the future. The trainees’ job will be to stay one step ahead of hackers, who are constantly looking for new ways to exploit vulnerable computer networks, whether it’s to make a statement, as in the practice of hacktivism, or for monetary gain. Because hackers have a habit of sharing information online, the hacker community is a vast “underground ecosystem” that
must be understood before it can be suppressed, Chen said. Using cutting-edge data-mining techniques, the researchers will comb through massive amounts of online chatter to single out the most influential hackers in hopes of identifying their strategies and protecting against them. Researchers are also looking at other ways of preventing cyberattacks. Eric Gross, a graduate student in the MIS department, is one of those being trained as a part of Chen’s Scholarship for Service grant. Gross’

“In the States, these kinds of injuries haven’t happened to women in 130 years,” Meyer said. Meyer said that while the work he did in Uganda with the fistula repair surgeries was challenging, the facilities he used to do the repairs were sufficient to get the job done. “Repairing these holes in bladders … is the hardest surgery I’ve done in my entire surgical career,” Meyer said. “I’ve become a better vaginal surgeon back home because of the work I did [in Africa] because of the
The UA has been ranked the third-best university for sexual health programs and services, after Ivy League schools Princeton University and Columbia University. Researched by Sperling’s Best Places in coordination with Trojan Condoms, the 2013 Trojan Condoms Sexual Health Report Card ranked 140 universities across the U.S. by a variety of factors provided by campus health services. Lee Ann Hamilton, the assistant director of Health Promotion and Preventative Services at UA Campus Health Service, said the Sexual Health Report Card takes into consideration a broad range of services, such as STD testing and educational programs. In addition to its programs, Campus Health was also evaluated based on its website and other educational efforts, such as its advice column “Sex Talk,” Hamilton added. “We were very thrilled because we have been moving up over the years,” Hamilton said. “The other two [universities] are very wellknown for their services in sexual health and leadership in health ed.” Since Princeton and Columbia, number one and two on the list respectively, are both private institutions, the UA is the number one public institution, Hamilton said. Private universities have different sources of funding and probably have more resources, according to David Salafsky, the director of Health Promotion and Preventative Services at Campus Health. Salafsky said Campus Health works hard to provide the best resources, programs and services possible on its limited budget. “Those private institutions [are] great institutions, but they’re private, and we run on a different model here,” Salafsky said. “It was really nice to see us head and shoulders above all the other schools that would be like us.” According to Hamilton, Campus Health has a lot of services that can help potentially or already sexually active people reduce health risks. “That’s why it’s important,

UAMC doctors go international Physicians embark on overseas medical missions, gain world experience BY ETHAN MCSWEENEY The Daily Wildcat
Dr. Bill Meyer has been visiting Africa since 2004 to perform surgical procedures. Meyer, a clinical associate UA professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the UA College of Medicine and a physician at the University of Arizona Medical Center, said he first went to a hospital in Ethiopia nine years ago. He spent two weeks there learning how to do fistula repairs which involve fixing an abnormal connection between organs. Since his first visit, Meyer said, he’s met other physicians in Africa practicing the same kind of medicine who have periodically invited him back to help with fistula repair surgeries. Meyer is one of many UA physicians who travel overseas on medical missions. While these programs aren’t run through the UA, physicians in the ObGyn
Department often go on the missions, coordinating among themselves when to leave so there aren’t too many doctors gone at any one time, Meyer said. The ObGyn Department needs at least one doctor on call at all times to help deliver babies, Meyer added. The doctors leaving have to do extra hours to make up for the time lost and have to notify the department four weeks in advance if they’re planning to go on a mission. Meyer’s most recent mission was in mid-September to Uganda, where he operated on women who had developed vesicovaginal fistulas, which are holes between the bladder and vagina that occur due to labor complications. On his 10-day mission, Meyer treated more than 40 women suffering from this condition, which results in urinal leaking. While this condition is rare in the U.S., these fistulas are common in African countries like Uganda due to poor medical conditions, Meyer said.

— Hors d’oeuvres are great for soaking up alcohol at parties, to help guests stay at least somewhat sober.
— Though the French can claim they coined the term, hors d’oeuvres were first served in Ancient Greece and Rome.

HOROSCOPES Today’s birthday (11/13/13): Creativity abounds this year, quite profitably. Write, record and document your expressions. This autumn and next spring prove especially fertile, with late next summer a perfect launch. Partnership grows and gets romantic. Career communication peaks with new opportunities around July 25. Work may include travel. Rest up next October for a busy winter season.
SPOT John Fomeche, UA Financial Services representative
To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Today is a 7 — Do like the bees, and get busy collecting nectar. There’s plenty of work to be done around the hive. Use safe cleaning supplies. It’s not necessarily the best time for romance. Make longterm plans. Creature comforts are nice.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is a 9 — You’re on top of the world in a variety of ways. There are some interferences in romance. Invent something new in your relationship. Your self-confidence helps, but don’t get arrogant. Try listening for what’s wanted.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Today is a 9 — Everything works better together with a reliable partner now. Supporting each other, you both get further. Your romantic fantasies seem more achievable. But there’s still room for misunderstanding. Listen more than speaking.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Today is an 8 — For the next seven months with Neptune direct, work and career flow forward. Decisions seem easier. Take care, but don’t get stopped by old fears. Consider what you want. Slow down and contemplate.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — Today is a 9 — There’s room for conflict and disagreement but also for love and pampering. Find the balance you strive for. Things are falling into place. For the next few months, it’s easier to understand abstract thoughts.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Today is a 7 — This week spins some good party days. Avoid excesses that could cloud your thinking, as tempers run a bit short now. Relaxing is a priority. Plan a vacation, even just by scheduling time to do nothing.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today is an 8 — Home is where the heart is. The next two days are good for domestic projects. Your income seems to rise naturally, now that Neptune’s direct. Trust your own good judgment. Keep in action, and pace yourself.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Today is a 9 — Consider new opportunities; however, don’t take a job you don’t understand. Listen to your heart before saying yes. Until about the middle of next year, it’s easier to save money. Take advantage.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is a 8 — Travel is appealing, although it could be challenging. Expand your boundaries. Team actions move toward goals you set some time in the past. Be polite.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Today is a 7 — An unexpected bonus arises. It’s easier to achieve your goals. You’re getting smarter by the minute, but don’t get cocky. There’s a lesson here; postpone romance until you get it. Write your musings.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is a 8 — Focus on what you love, and the money will come. Tailor your passion to the market. Track your finances to increase the bottom line. Reaching an agreement could seem like a balancing act. Divining fact from fantasy gets easier.

What’s working at financial services entail? My responsibilities entail answering questions at the counter, phones and through emails.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 9 — Focus on making honest money. Your dreams are more achievable, now and for the next seven months. Complete one project, and then dream up new ones. Remain obsessed with details.
So, what’s the most common experience working here? Financial aid that doesn’t disburse, because of academic reasons, requirements that aren’t quite complete. How do students usually sound when they ask about that? You have no idea. It’s a fight sometimes. They get loud. Like, combative? Not to that extent, no, but they get pretty angry, as you can imagine, as someone who doesn’t have financial aid and has been delayed from starting school. How do you take their attitude? Do you ever take it personally? You can’t take it personally. It’s part of the job, you know? Everyone gets frustrated, and they have a reason to get frustrated, so you have to understand where they’re coming from and try to help them as much as you can. That sounds about right. After all, how would we feel if we were in that position? Fortunately, I haven’t been in that position. Like I said, you really have to put yourself in that spot — how would you feel? And that helps you get through their problem, empathize with them, see where they’re coming from, why they’re angry. Usually that helps, if you think about it that way. What’s it take to remain calm in that situation? It takes practice. The first time was — it takes a lot of practice. The first few times I did it, I was scared, I was afraid and I almost took it personally. But the more you do it, the better you become at it. How do you feel about this job? I’m getting better at my job. Every day you learn something new. The more you do it, the better you become, and you just have to relate to students. What do you feel like you’re contributing to the university? I’m part of a team here. And as part of this team, we get to solve financially related problems. You can’t go to school without financial aid. A lot of students can’t afford school without the money, and our job is to bring that to them as efficiently and fast as possible.

The UA Poetry Center will showcase faculty members Aurelie Sheehan and Farid Matuk this Thursday with a reading of their works followed by a question-and-answer session. Focusing mostly on fiction, Sheehan is the author of two novels and two short story collections. She has been teaching at the university since 2000 and is currently teaching fiction. Sheehan studied creative writing at Hampshire College and earned a master’s degree in fiction at The City College of New York. Sheehan said that during her reading, she plans on sharing work from her newest book, “Jewelry Box: A Collection of Histories,” which includes 58 short pieces. The pieces vary in length from short paragraphs to pages, and were inspired by household objects and overlooked concepts. “[Each piece begins] with an object or a concept that might seem mundane at first glance — a tube of mascara, a cat’s tail, mushroom pate — but offer a very personal and idiosyncratic ‘history’ just under the surface,” Sheehan said in an email. “This particular project straddles fiction and memoir. It uses the concept of history, but with flights of fancy.” Matuk said he took his first creative writing course at a workshop two years after he finished college. With the experience he had gained from the workshops and his own personal drive, Matuk was accepted into several graduate programs.

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF ENGLISH Aureli Sheehan will read from her newest book, “Jewelry Box: A Collection of Histories,” at the UA Poetry Center on Thursday.
A few weeks after Matuk began graduate school in 2001, the World Trade Center was attacked. “It seemed like a sign to grow up and take my country and my peoples seriously, so that’s what I’ve been trying to do ever since,” Matuk said in an email interview. Matuk said he will read from his newest collection of poems, “My Daughter La Chola.” The poems are addressed to his daughter, who is almost three years old. “I guess, like most parents, I feel responsible for having helped bring my daughter into a difficult world,” Matuk said. In his work, Matuk exposes racial violence and civil injustice in the U.S., and how this relates to his daughter as she grows up. In his collection, Matuk tells the story of a woman named Martina Espinoza, who was made a scapegoat for the actions of a Latino outlaw in 1875, which resulted in a series of lynchings and executions in her community.
“One of the things I love about poetry is that, when you’re listening to it or reading it, your attention can float across different positions, you can imagine yourself to be the one addressed and the one (or ones) speaking,” Matuk said. “That’s a pretty nice loosening up of our habituated, disciplined, striving and marketable selves. So yeah, I hope people get loose.” Cybele Knowles, the Poetry Center’s program director, said faculty readings like these are as much for the faculty involved as they are for the attendees, as they can bring exposure to writers who work on campus every day. “We just want everyone in Tucson at the university and the outside community to be aware of what amazing writers and poets we have on our faculty,” Knowles said. “We obviously know them as our teachers and mentors and people really important in shaping our ideas of what powerful and good writing is.” — Follow Arts reporter Casey Knox @Knox_Casey

Nonprofits’ finances reveal true priorities BY Max Weintraub The Daily Wildcat
rom a fiscal perspective, nonprofit organizations in this country are enjoying an all-time high. Between 2000 and 2010, the number of not-for-profit organizations increased by 24 percent, and inflation-adjusted revenue increased by 41 percent. Those numbers, however, obscure some of the disturbing trends that have been making headlines. The Washington Post has created a searchable archive of the financial disclosures of more than 1,000 nonprofit organizations. The disclosures are mandatory for any diversion of funds totaling $250,000 or in excess of 5 percent of the organization’s total assets. Financial mismanagement, fraud and embezzlement have led to the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars from organizations like the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria ($43,000,000) to Tucson’s own Handmaker Foundation ($74,380). Meanwhile, some of the nation’s most successful nonprofits, such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure, have turned their charitable status into a marketing platform that has become a cultural phenomenon. While the savvy branding of pink products during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” each October has led to increased revenue, expenditures on cure-related research have failed to keep pace. In this kind of environment, there is very little certainty that the donations you make will actually go toward advancing the cause you support. While fraud and embezzlement are disturbing given the scale at which they take place, they are typically perpetrated by rogue agents in these organizations — although it is reasonable to expect that administrative members in these nonprofits should have caught wind of many of these crimes much sooner. I, however, find the actions of organizations like Susan G. Komen for the Cure to be much more damaging. The incredibly successful pink marketing campaign by Komen and other breast cancer-related groups — like the NFL’s official partner, the American Cancer Society — has led to a phenomenon known as “pinkwashing.” “Pinkwashers” are companies and organizations that exploit consumers’ charitable sympathies for profit. For example, the NFL announced that a portion of the proceeds from all pink-branded products would go directly towards cancer research. A breakdown of the actual numbers revealed that for every $100 a consumer spent, a measly $8.01 actually went toward actual research. Susan G. Komen outlines its platform as searching “for the cure.” However, in fiscal year 2012, only 18 percent of Susan G. Komen’s total expenditures went toward research. A closer inspection reveals that, of that research, only 53 percent was actually geared towards finding a cure. In 2011, despite revenue increasing by $100 million, only 15 percent went toward research. In the same year, CEO Nancy Brinker received a 64 percent raise. After public backlash against the decision, Brinker took a lower position in the organization — a full year after she said she would — with no decrease in her $684,000 annual salary. Supporters of Susan G. Komen would be glad to hear that almost $1 million dollars of donor funds are spent annually suing smaller nonprofits over the use of the word “cure,” because nothing says “This is about curing women” better than “Get your filthy hands off our slogan!” And none of this addresses the issue of other companies adopting the pink ribbon as a logo without donating any proceeds to cancer research. Nonprofits were designed to enable enterprising individuals and like-minded donors to work together and solve important issues. Unfortunately, without economic transparency, it is up to the consumer to ensure that their money is actually going to the causes they support by demanding greater accountability from nonprofits.

Female video game leads should not just be sexy BY shelby thomas The Daily Wildcat
ith a predicted global net worth of more than $76 billion by the end of 2013, it is evident that the video game industry has taken the world by storm. As women become increasingly active in the gaming community, their interests need to be valued just as much as men’s. There has been a shift in the assumed profile of the average gamer. Gone are the days when gamers were only nerdy, sweatypalmed teenage boys clicking away at controllers in dark basements. Today, approximately 45 percent of gamers are women, according to the Entertainment Software Association, and women over the age of 18 represent 31 percent of the game-playing population. With such an overwhelming female presence, it is time for game makers to acknowledge women’s creative and economic contribution to the industry through the creation of diverse female characters. Polygon, a video game news website, reported that a mere 4 percent of video games feature a female lead character. Frankly, 4 percent is not enough. A few characters provide female gamers with subtle rays
of hope that attempt to pierce through the dark cloud that is the rampant misogyny within the video game industry. Power and precision take a human form in Faith from the game “Mirror’s Edge.” Tenaciousness is embodied by Chell, the test subject in the award-winning “Portal” series. And the new “Call of Duty: Ghosts,” released Nov. 5, finally offers the option to create female avatars in multiplayer mode. Unfortunately, these strong female characters are far outnumbered by overtly sexualized ones with little-to-no substance beyond their scantily clad bodies — complete with unrealistically tiny waists and enormous breasts. Tifa Lockhart, in “Final Fantasy VII,” for example, wears a miniskirt, and her large chest is covered with a white crop top revealing her perfectly flat stomach. Kasumi from “Dead or Alive” is an impressive fighter but often shows off her skills in bikinis, thigh-high socks or schoolgirl outfits. This disturbing trend continues throughout many modern video games. Female characters’ talents, regardless of how remarkable they may be, are overshadowed by their exaggerated features and revealing clothing. Sean Gundu, a sophomore studying information systems and acting, said he enjoys playing simulation, role-playing, sports and adventure games.
Your views In response to “Lecture results in hate mail, threats” (by Ethan McSweeney, Nov. 7) I am a conservative, and am in this class. [Associate professor Pat] Willerton is a passionate teacher who cares about his students. His lectures are meaningful and interesting. Although he has presented lectures that touch on Fox News or negatives of the Republican Party, he has always present both sides. He allows people to respond in his class and presents them. If people are all up in arms because he has presented liberal ideas in class, that is ridiculous. You are unrealistic if you are offended when your party is criticized, because both sides have problems. Willerton teaches comparative politics and that is exactly what he does, he presents all views. Quit criticizing a respectful and passionate teacher. This article should have mentioned how his class is completely full every lecture because students enjoy the class. Willerton deserves recognition for keeping his students engaged. This is not a story of a liberal teacher promoting their agenda, I’ve had teachers like that, and Willerton is not one of them. — Joe Zanoni Typical UofA, allowing liberal propaganda to be spread and defending it.

Conservatism just sucks, and when you are the minority we are going to criminalize you like you did us — for the last 50 years. Moral laws are great [be]cause anything can be criminalized. Expect to be deemed felons then banned from all government entitlements then told to pull yourselves up via your own bootstraps. It will come to pass. — shawn_von_socialist “Conservatism just sucks”? That’s really your argument? You’re going to criminalize us like we criminalized you for the past 50 years? Really? And you know what, we understand what hard work means and have the work ethic and persistence to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps. A quality that you, quite obviously, don’t possess. If I’m banned from all government entitlements, then I don’t have to pay taxes, right? No problem! I’ll pay for a private (and better) education for my children; I’ll purchase my own health insurance through a privately held company, and not expect any help from the government … but then again, I don’t get any now, so how would it be any different? Quick question for you: How do you propose we pay our debts to foreign countries if we increase spending? Where will the money come from? Ah, but wait — you wouldn’t understand the ins and outs of financial issues because everything is handed to you from the government. Too bad. — John Q. (in response to shawn_von_socialist)

POLICE BEAT BY ALISON DORF
The Daily Wildcat
A weird feeling
A UA student was arrested and taken to the hospital for minor in possession of alcohol on Nov. 6 at 2:30 a.m., after an officer from the University of Arizona Police Department received a call about an intoxicated woman at a residence hall. When the officer arrived, he spoke with a resident assistant, who said a student had knocked on her door and said she “felt weird.” The Tucson Fire Department also responded to the scene to provide medical assistance. The officer spoke to the student, who said she had been drinking at Alpha Epsilon Pi. She said she had drunk seven sake bombs. While speaking with the student, the officer noticed she was slurring her words, had red watery eyes and smelled strongly of alcohol. The student said she was gluten intolerant and was not supposed to eat pasta or drink beer, but had eaten a large pasta dinner and drunk beer earlier in the night. She also said she had taken prescription medication prior to consuming the beer. An ambulance took the student to the University of Arizona Medical Center for evaluation. She was also cited and released for underage drinking.
On Nov. 6 at 2:11 p.m., a UA employee reported that a woman had stolen a pair of shoes from the UA A-Store at Main Gate on Park Avenue. A UAPD officer met with the manager of the store. The manager told the officer that a woman in her early twenties had come into the store earlier that day and taken several items into a dressing room to try them on, including a pair of TOMS shoes in the box. After she tried on the items, she took them back to where she had gotten them and left without buying anything. When the manager checked the shoe area of the store, he discovered the TOMS box the woman had taken into the dressing room was empty. He described the woman as a white college-age woman with brown hair and acne who was wearing a purple shirt, jean shorts and sunglasses. The manager gave the officer a receipt for the shoes for the amount of $55. A loss prevention employee agreed to provide a copy of the store video of the woman. The receipt was placed into property and evidence.

Campus Health Service holds Free Condom Fridays in Campus Health Services. Trojan Condoms named the UA as the third-best for sexual health programs and services.
Health helps students make the move from high school to college and gives them a foundation for making wellinformed choices even
beyond graduation, as the transition to college could be a time where relationships and sexual health are important parts of the equation for
students. Marisa Contreras, a prephysiology freshman, said Campus Health makes it easier for students to get access to safe sex resources by providing free programs and services. “[Students] know it’s OK that they can go to the health center and actually go and get condoms if they actually need it,” Contreras said. “There’s many ways that we tell our students that it’s OK to have sex, but as long as we’re having it safely.”

challenges that kind of work poses.” Dr. Jessica Moreno, an assistant professor in the Department of ObGyn and a physician at UAMC, said she shares Meyer’s sentiments about the difficulties of international medicine. She has previously done work in Peru, helping train and certify local health care workers in prevention strategies against cervical cancer using methods more helpful to rural areas. “Getting to these remote areas can pose a challenge,” Moreno said. “The journey is long and the roads are not always good.” The training and preparation that go into these medical missions overseas can be extensive, Moreno added. Her process in Peru involved getting community leaders to back the doctors’ efforts and promoters to help educate others and dispel misconceptions, among other things, in order to get people involved in the cervical cancer screenings. “Training local providers to do sustainable projects to improve the health of their communities is most rewarding,” Moreno said.

research will focus on ways hackers might access mobile devices like smartphones and tablets as opposed to web servers, which are a common target of hackers. Following in the hackers’ footsteps, Gross tries to pinpoint devices using a tool called Shodan. Unlike search engines like Google that look for websites, Shodan scours the Internet for data associated with the myriad servers, webcams, printers and other devices that are connected to data networks worldwide. The results from a Shodan search yield information about such devices in the form of metadata, which is data about the device and how it operates. This seemingly innocuous data can actually be used by hackers to pull off some unusual tricks. Gross said he has heard stories of hackers being able to hijack webcams or even gain control of streetlights, both of which could raise serious ethical and public safety
concerns. While many web servers have a fixed Internet Protocol address, or IP address, mobile devices have a dynamic IP address that can change over time, making it difficult for hackers to hone in on a particular device. That is why mobile devices are rarely hacked — but that doesn’t mean hackers aren’t trying. “A lot of [hackers] think very laterally,” Gross said. “They find brilliant new ways to exploit devices that no one’s thought of before.” Gross is currently exploring ways to locate mobile devices using Shodan to assess their vulnerability. As in all cybersecurity work, the end goal is to shore up any weaknesses that might exist in the system and prevent future cyber-attacks, he said. Brint Milward, director of the School of Government and Public Policy and holder of the Providence Service Corporation Chair in Public Management, is the principal investigator of a similar project that was recently funded by the NSF for $200,000 over two years. His research will analyze the social networks through which hackers

communicate to learn more about the hackers themselves. “Computational scientists are great at documenting the attacks,” Milward said. “The thing that they haven’t been able to do is track backwards from the attack to the attackers, and that’s where the social scientists come in.”
By analyzing the various forums in which hackers share information about their craft, the researchers will be able to identify “signatures,” or patterns of behavior that could hint at the hackers’ motives or even their identities, Milward said, adding that minimizing cyber-attacks is “one of the pre-eminent public policy
challenges of this era.” The three projects include collaboration between researchers of different disciplines to tackle the issues of cybersecurity, as experts in the fields of management and sociology join forces with computational scientists to uncover the inner workings of hacker networks. “This is a great example of people from different colleges [at the UA] coming together to advance the new science of cybersecurity,” said Ronald Breiger, a sociology professor and co-principal investigator on two of the projects. Chen said he thinks it’s rewarding to know that he’s involved in research that will benefit not only government and industry agencies, but also the public at large. “[The researchers and I] are very excited about what we do,” he said, “not just in advancing the science, but also helping to make the Internet a safer place.” — Follow Mark Armao @MarkArmao

NUMBER OF THE DAY
Arizona basketball fans can still follow some of their favorite former Wildcats at the next level, though the stars’ days of playing in McKale Center are over. Currently, nine Arizona alumni are on eight different rosters in the National Basketball Association. The list of names includes veterans like Jason Terry, Andre Iguodala, Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, along with players with a few years’ experience such as Jerryd Bayless, Jordan Hill and Chase Budinger. Derrick Williams is now in his third season in the league, while Solomon Hill was just picked 23rd overall in the NBA draft over the summer. Since 1988, Arizona has produced 36 draft picks, the most in college basketball. “It feels great to be a first-round draft pick, and it’s very humbling,” Solomon Hill said on draft night in a press release. “I’ve learned that you have to focus on being the best player you can be and do the little things to help your team win. That’s something [Arizona head] coach [Sean] Miller helped me focus on over the last few seasons, and it’s great to see the hard work pay off.” Terry is in his 15th NBA season and his first with the Brooklyn Nets after coming over in a trade from the Boston Celtics that also included Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Terry was a key part of Arizona’s 1997 national championship team and played a large role coming off the bench during the Dallas Mavericks’ NBA title run in the 2010-11 season. After being traded from the Denver Nuggets to the Golden State Warriors in a deal that involved sending Jefferson to the Utah Jazz, Iguodala cashed in on a four-year, $48 million deal. The 2012 NBA All Star is off to a fast start with the Warriors this year, averaging 15.1 points, five assists and 4.4 rebounds per game. Now suiting up for a fifth team, Jefferson has started all eight of Utah’s games this season. He has previously played for the Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs, Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets. Frye has returned for a fourth season with the Phoenix Suns after missing all of last season due to a heart issue. The eighth overall pick in the 2005 draft has started all seven games for Phoenix, averaging 6.7 points and 4.7 rebounds. Bayless came off the bench last season to help lead Memphis to the Western Conference Finals. Throughout the 2012-13 playoffs, he averaged 9.3 points per contest.

For the Minnesota Timberwolves, Williams has been coming off the bench while Budinger is still recovering from arthroscopic surgery and a meniscectomy on his left knee. Over the offseason, Budinger was re-signed to a three-year, $16 million deal. Jordan Hill will serve as a big body from the bench again this season for the Los Angeles Lakers. In March 2012, he was traded from the Houston Rockets for longtime Lakers point guard Derek Fisher. The Indiana Pacers have had an incredible start with Solomon Hill as a bench player. Currently, the Pacers are the only undefeated team left in the NBA with a perfect 8-0 record.

Thunder for cash and considerations on draft night, he decided to sign with the D-League’s Tulsa 66ers instead of trying for a spot on the Thunder’s roster during training camp. Miller said he looks to continue producing NBA-material players at the UA. “[We are] a program that is committed to our own team and the development of it, embracing the great teams and players of the past,” Miller said at the press conference after the Red-Blue game in October, “and we are certainly well aware of the importance of recruiting.”
“I love the position I’m in,” Hill said. “The Pacers are a great team that competes for championships. I now get the chance to learn from their older guys, so I have a chance to carve out a role and do whatever I can to help the team be successful.” Since he took over as head coach of Arizona in 2009, Miller has produced three NBA draft picks, two going in the first round and one in the top five,. Apart from Williams and Solomon Hill, former Wildcat power forward Grant Jerrett was chosen in the second round, 40th overall, by the Portland Trail Blazers in June. However, Jerrett is not expected to play in the NBA this season. After being dealt to the Oklahoma City

Freshman goes the A distance for Arizona BY NICOLE COUSINS
The Daily Wildcat Eighteen-year-old Tyler Fowler is a long way from home. The 5-foot-11 freshman swimmer from Liberty, Mo., picked up his Midwestern roots and moved out to Tucson this fall to test the waters, choosing the UA over Michigan. “The joke is that one morning in February, I googled the temperatures in both places, and I decided Arizona,” Fowler said. “It was like -5 in Michigan, and that’s not for me.” The weather wasn’t the only thing that sold the Missouri native on representing the Wildcats. As a devout swimmer, he said, being a member of the Arizona swim team that placed third in the NCAA
Championships in 2013 sounded “pretty cool.” Not to mention that he can call prominent UA swimmers like senior Matt Barber and juniors Kevin Cordes and Eric Solis teammates again after having swum with them on the NCSA Junior National Team. Fowler admits that Barber, Cordes and Solis had some influence on his decision to come to Arizona, especially after he traveled to Ireland with them for a meet in his freshman year of high school. “That’s kind of where the bond started,” Fowler said. The bond was strong enough to lure Fowler (or Ty, as his teammates call him) into the desert — to go the distance, literally. As a distance swimmer, Fowler, a 2012
rizona volleyball’s struggles this season come from a lack of chemistry between the team members. Head coach Dave Rubio expressed disappointment over the way the team performed after Sunday’s match against the No. 3 Washington Huskies. Although the Wildcats are nearing the end of their season, Rubio said it’s completely normal for them to have communication issues. It doesn’t matter how far along they are in their season; it’s a common problem with the Arizona team. “I thought our chemistry was poor [on Sunday]. Apparently there are some things we need to work out,” Rubio said. “I think that’s always been an issue for us. We’ve been able to talk things out in the past and really work … on the way they’re communicating with one another.” If the Arizona team wants to improve, its players need to form a stronger bond. Rubio said it is important for the players to talk things out as soon as possible before their upcoming six matches, which are vital in propelling the team toward postseason play. “The key for us is to continue to identify the issues and the problems that we have as a team,” Rubio said. This isn’t the first time Arizona has seen a lack of chemistry, so the coaches already know what needs to be done in order for the women to come

Junior National Champion who boasted a time of 15:57.24 in the mile freestyle, will be expected to fill a gap in an otherwise competitive UA swim team. “Ty is very easily motivated to race in practice and he always has a positive attitude and he always brings a lot to practice every day,” Barber said. “It’s good having a pure miler in our practice group.” The Wildcats are known for their speed, and as the lone distance swimmer — aside from Barber, who competes in the 500-yard freestyle — Fowler has some ground to cover. “The big thing for me in my distance racing is [that] I don’t have the speed, so to be in a speed program ensures that I’ll get some of that,” Fowler said. “I still get my distance training, too, and it’s good to have world-class coaches to help you work on the speed.” His addition could help improve distance swimming for Arizona, and he will work with next year’s distance recruits to help the UA win another national championship. His distance training thus far has landed him four years of competition in junior nationals meets, as well as an appearance at the June 2012 Olympic Swim Trials in Omaha, Neb. For him, the Olympic trials were more of a learning experience than a competition. Battling back from health issues, Fowler said he approached his competition in Omaha as a time to learn from other swimmers and apply that knowledge to win a Junior National Championship in July of the same year. “Coming into that meet, I wasn’t ready to go by any means, so I think that really helped me just enjoy it,” Fowler said. “I didn’t have to be worried about my place or my time.” Fowler’s serious approach to swimming and dedication to practice caught Arizona’s eye. Interim head coach Rick DeMont said he has been impressed with Fowler’s work ethic and with how far the freshman has come since August. “He is getting better every day,” DeMont said. “He showed up this summer pretty out of shape, but he is starting to get pretty fit. I really like how he approaches training and how seriously he approaches swimming. There’s going to be a good future for him.” The Academic All-American from 20112013 combines his love for swimming with his knack for learning. He is a biomedical engineering major who hopes to go to medical school after graduating. Fowler said he is in school for the long haul. He said he knows it’s possible. Alumni have accomplished the same thing he hopes to, and he said he plans to make use of their help through his academic and athletic career. Fowler’s passion for swimming, his teammates and his education all come together in Arizona. He just had to travel 1,200 miles to make it work.
winning streak prior to the current losing streak, they are still alive in the conference race. 7. Arizona (6-3, 3-3) LW: 5 The Wildcats were disappointing this past weekend against UCLA. With a chance to jump in the rankings, Arizona fell flat on its face. And with two losses and zero victories against ranked opponents, another trip to the New Mexico Bowl looks likely. 8. Washington (6-3, 3-3) LW: 8 The Huskies are staying steady at number eight. Back-to-back home victories over Cal and Colorado are nothing to get excited about, but if Washington can get a road victory at UCLA this weekend, UW might be able to save face after losing three in a row. ryan revock/The Daily Wildcat

The Daily Wildcat 1. No. 4 Stanford (8-1, 6-1 Pac-12 Conference) Last week: 2 The Cardinal didn’t just beat thenNo. 3 Oregon last Thursday — it ran all over it. Holding the Ducks’ explosive offense to 20 points established Stanford as the conference’s best national championship contender. With games still remaining at USC and versus Notre Dame and a likely Pac-12 Championship Game appearance, Stanford has an excellent chance to move into the top two. 2. No. 6 Oregon (8-1, 5-1) LW: 1 The Ducks’ loss to Stanford was a hard hit. The question has now arisen whether Oregon can ever win
a big game. There’s still a chance for the Ducks to win the Pac-12 North, but with an easy schedule remaining, it will be difficult for them to prove themselves just by winning out. They are going to need the Cardinal to lose a couple of its remaining games. 3. No. 19 ASU (7-2, 5-1) LW: 3 The Sun Devils had a difficult time at Utah this past week, only winning by one. But the Utes are a challenging road game, and ASU still played well in the second half. Currently sitting in first place of the Pac-12 South division, The Sun Devils control their own destiny and look to have the talent to hang on. 4. No. 13 UCLA (7-2, 4-2) LW: 4 With a No. 13 ranking, the Bruins

back together and continue working cohesively to finish their season. “There’s a time in the season where we need to kind of have a power hour with the group, and hopefully they’re willing to speak honestly,” Rubio said. “We’ve done that a couple times.” Sunday’s match was the first Pac-12 home loss for Arizona, and it has two upcoming home conference matches this week to work on regaining that team

5. USC (7-3, 4-2) LW: 6 The Trojans beat up Cal last week, which came as no surprise, but they are clearly playing their best football. USC has come a long way since the beginning of the season and is currently riding a three-game winning streak. Its next opponent, Stanford, should be on upset alert.
10. Washington State (4-5, 2-4) LW: 10 A season that began with so much optimism has ended in frustration. The Cougars can still ruin Arizona’s season, though, with a road victory in Tucson. 11. Colorado (3-6, 0-6), California (1-9, 0-7) LW: 11 These two schools meet Saturday in Colorado. The loser will be crowned the pit of the conference.
6. Oregon State (6-3, 4-2) LW: 7 The Beavers have dropped two in a row, but because of their six-game
chemistry. “The chemistry is always ongoing; it never stops. We never stop working on it,” Rubio said. “Some teams are better than others.” Junior Madi Kingdon said the team has players who seem to be playing for themselves and some who don’t contribute positive vibes on the court, like giving a simple high-five after a good play. If you watch any volleyball match, you’ll see all kinds of gestures of support among the opposing team members, but not so much from Arizona. Communication will be important

in order for Arizona to beat the next six teams on the schedule, and Rubio said the coaching staff will address the problems before the women compete again. “There’s direction that needs to come from the coaching staff. We have to identify some of the issues and talk them out, talk to individual players,” Rubio said. “We certainly have some things on the table that need to be addressed.” — Follow Rose Aly Valenzuela @RoseAlyVal

are overrated. But because of where they were ranked to start the season, it’s where they stand. UCLA didn’t play well this past week in Tucson but still found a way to win. And with battles in the near future against ASU and USC, the Bruins still have a good chance to win the Pac-12 South.
9. Utah (4-5, 1-5) LW: 9 The Utes played well at home against ASU but couldn’t pull off the upset. Utah has two remaining games that are winnable, and it can’t afford to lose, as it doesn’t want to miss reaching a bowl for the second consecutive season.

No. 6 Arizona basketball earned a win in its season opener on Friday night, defeating Cal Poly 73-62 and blasting Long Beach State 91-57. Sophomore punter Drew Riggleman was named Special Teams Player of the Week by the Arizona coaching staff for the second straight week. Riggleman punted five times against UCLA for a total of 259 yards and averaged 51.8 yards per kick, which is the best single-game average he’s had so far.
The Arizona men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams fell to USC on Saturday afternoon. The women lost 167133, and the men lost 172-128. Arizona women’s basketball lost both its opening weekend games in overtime — 82-75 to Iona on Friday and 73-71 to Michigan on Saturday. The Miami Dolphins were bullied by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, losing their first game since the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin scandal broke.
