Transgender icon to speak on campus

earts were broken when Alexander Goodrum, a local African-American transgender activist, took his own life on Sept. 28, 2002. Mara Keisling, a close friend of Goodrum and the founding Executive Director of the National Center for Transgender Equality, will take the stage in Gallagher Theater today to honor the countless transgender people like Goodrum who have suffered physical and emotional abuse because of their gender identities. “I know I’ll be remembering him,” Keisling said of her friend. “He was such an important part of the national movement.” Transgender Awareness Week, which aims to celebrate transgender identities in the Tucson community, began last Wednesday and will continue through Tuesday. Along with being the keynote speaker for Transgender Awareness Week, Keisling will also be presenting the data of the largest national transgender awareness survey to be conducted to date, titled “Injustice at Every Turn,” at 3 p.m. today in Drachman Hall. “[The data] is truly appalling at every level,” said Jennifer Hoefle, program director for LGBTQ Affairs. “I think part of what I imagine, and what I’ve seen her talk about before in the presentation of this data, is that to deal with this, it’s going to take all of us. We need people from every area of our public sphere to participate in making the world a safe and wonderful place for transgender people.” The theme for Keisling’s keynote address will be “Celebrating Trans* Lives,” in which she will reflect on the national movement in

recent years. Along with the violence and opposition that transgender people face, the community has also experienced significant gains and has come a long way in its activism, Hoefle said. “We know that the transgender community is facing inordinate amounts of discrimination,” Hoefle said, “but there are also amazing heroes and sheroes and activists and just people who are transgenderidentified who need to be celebrated, who we don’t know enough about, who aren’t part of the national dialogue to the degree that they should be.” Rae Strozzo, program coordinator for the Southern Arizona Gender Alliance, said he’s looking forward to hearing a woman of Keisling’s success speak on the issues that the transgender community faces. “Having Mara here, for the community, is a really, really amazing opportunity, because she’s the head of a very important organization around trans* rights,” Strozzo said. “It’s nice to be able to have that moment of collaboration and talking to somebody who really has her thumb on the pulse of what’s going on all over the country.” Strozzo said he’s looking forward to Keisling’s take on the progress the transgender community has made in recent years, despite the struggles and opposition it has faced. In the past, Transgender Awareness Week in Tucson has hosted keynote speakers such as Loren Cameron, a transgender photographer, and Kate Bornstein, a performance artist, author and national leader of trans* issues.

Museum’s market to showcase local art, food


McKinzie Frisbie n event set to run through the weekend aims to bring together the best of the Southwest with food trucks, live bluegrass music and an array of artwork from 147

artists. The 2013 Holiday Artisans Market begins today and will run through Sunday at the Tucson Museum of Art. “It’s kind of like a Fourth Avenue Street Fair vibe, but not quite so hipster,” said Meagan Crain, the museum’s special events manager. Crain added that a few thousand people typically attend the event over the course of the weekend, filling up the museum grounds. John McNulty, retail manager of the museum and co-founder of the craft market, said that the Holiday Artisans Market also offers a head start on gift shopping. “It’s not just the gift-giving crowd,” McNulty said, “but it certainly helps to have items that people will buy for Christmas because that’s what they’re looking for.” McNulty said the cost of the artwork varies depending on the elegance of a piece. Prices generally start around $5 but can reach well over $1,000.

“It’s all media, so we’re looking at everything imaginable,” McNulty said. “Paper paintings, photography, jewelry, house goods, decorative goods, furniture [and] jams and jelly.” McNulty added that admission to the museum — which is usually $10 — is also free for the entire weekend. Since the market’s inception 30 years ago, McNulty said that not only are artists supported through local participation in the market, but the semi-annual event also helps the museum keep its doors open through fundraising. “The artists are actually helping the museum,” McNulty said. “It also makes people want to buy here because they know they are supporting the museum and the local artists as well.” Crain said food trucks set to attend include Kool Twists (ice cream and smoothies), DC Jumbie Latin and Caribbean cuisine and Dragoon Market Café from today until Sunday. Serial Grillers will join in on the food truck fun Saturday and Sunday, and a feast of kettle corn and hotdogs will also be available. The Tucson Kitchen Musicians Association will deliver its bluegrass folk jams in the museum’s parking lot on Saturday and Sunday. DJ Andy DePew from

The Holiday Artisans market takes over the Tucson Museum of Art earlier this year. The market returns this weekend with sales of local art and food.

Satyr Entertainment will be stationed in the lobby playing classic oldies. . Crain added that the event encompasses a relaxing and family-friendly environment. “They can come downtown to experience local artists and their work … and part of the proceeds go to the museum,” Crain said. “You can bring your family down, have lunch, listen to music [and] it can be a fullday event.”

Season of giving end-of-semester nerves like cuddling with fluffy animals.

Erin DeSoto

Tucsonans have a lot of great opportunities to get involved with the community and give back, all while having fun. All of these activities are free, so you’ll be able to save money, have fun and do some good as the holiday season rolls around.

Humane Society of Southern Arizona — 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd. The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is the perfect opportunity for animal lovers looking to brighten the day of homeless cats and dogs. The shelter offers many opportunities to get involved. Volunteer as a dog walker, a worker at off-site adoptions or just stop in and play with the pups for an hour or so. It is not only a free way to spend your afternoon but also a great stress reliever as finals approach. Nothing soothes

Ben’s Bells — 816 E. University Blvd. Another great opportunity for those feeling philanthropic is Ben’s Bells. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to spreading kindness throughout the Tucson community. Anyone can stop by the Ben’s Bells studio located on University Boulevard in Geronimo Plaza, and there is never a fee for participating, although donations are encouraged. Enjoy the peaceful plaza as you paint pottery that is hung around Tucson as a reminder to always be kind. Artistic skills not required!

Habitat for Humanity Tucson — 3501 N. Mountain Ave. If painting clay is not your forte, try painting a house. Habitat for Humanity

Tucson is another free way to spend your weekend and give back to those in need in a significant and rewarding way. Sign up to be a volunteer and build housing for people in need. Jobs include painting, framing, roofing, stucco and many others. Hard hat and goggles are provided. Come prepared to sweat a lot and give back even more.

Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona — 3003 S. Country Club Road A final way to spend your weekend in a charitable way is at the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. This works best in groups because it involves passing food down a line and packaging it to be sent to hungry families. There is always good music and snacks are provided. — Follow Arts reporter Erin DeSoto @ErinDesoto

TAKE A HIKE Tucson’s top five spots for the avid adventurer

“Sushi-licious” (Arizona Daily Star, August 25, 2011)

ALL YOU CAN EAT SUSHI tyler baker/The Daily Wildcat

Joe Fertilla, a photography junior, hikes around “A” Mountain at Sentinel Peak Park to take photos on Nov. 14.


Casey Knox

ith the drop in temperature lately, it’s easy to feel up for adventure this weekend. Luckily, Tucson is centered between a number of mountain ranges and there are plenty of other destinations within city limits. Here are a few of the best places to get out of the house and on your feet.

Seven Falls at Sabino Canyon Sabino Canyon’s hike up to Seven Falls winds through the rocky Santa Catalina Mountains to the ultimate destination — smooth rocks and mini waterfalls in the heart of the canyon. A little less than eight miles and three hours later, you’ll be feeling on top of the world.

“A” Mountain A university staple situated just outside of Tucson, Sentinel Peak (better known as “A” Mountain) has been branded with a giant “A” and can be seen from nearly everywhere in Tucson. At the top of the peak, hikers can overlook Tucson, with its crooked streets and tall buildings.

Tumamoc Hill Towering over the city, Tumamoc Hill is the perfect place for a weekend getaway — without actually getting away. The site is scattered with centuries-old petroglyphs from the Hohokam tribe, giving hikers a sense of the historical and cultural prominence of the summit.

DAILY LUNCH BUFFET Featuring seafood, sushi rolls, tempura, teriyaki chicken and much more!

Mt. Lemmon Break out the sweaters and boots and head out to Mt. Lemmon this weekend, located in the heart of the Santa Catalina Mountains. Covered in towering trees and overlooking nearly all of Tucson, Mt. Lemmon is the perfect place to escape from city life. The Mt. Lemmon Rock Loop hike is 8.6 miles long, so pack a lunch and check out for the day.

Gates Pass Situated just west of Tucson, Gate’s Pass is an easy 5-mile hike that could be completed in about two hours. Scattered saguaros and Palo Verde trees line the trail, giving hikers a sense of the beautiful Arizona aesthetics we all know and love. You may even run into some wildlife to complete your outdoor adventure. — Follow Arts reporter Casey Knox @Knox_Casey

UA Quidditch team hopes for bids in upcoming regional tournament



olting through the fields of Himmel Park, members of the UA Quidditch team demonstrated their strength and precision as they sunk one quaffle after another into the rings on either side of the field. The team exemplified its knowledge of the famous

“Harry Potter” game and its tangible reality in Tucson as it prepared for the fifth annual Western Regional Championship, set for Saturday and Sunday at the Benedict Sports Complex in Tempe, Ariz. The team was officially established in the fall of 2012, when co-founders Jessica Goodman, a senior studying literacy, learning and leadership, and Ian Shore, a spring 2013 graduate in political science, brought the tradition of Quidditch to the UA. The sport was adapted from the fictional “Harry Potter” game that sees wizards flying around on brooms and was first founded at Middlebury College in Vermont, according to the International Quidditch Association’s website. Some members of the UA team said they’re surprised to see how large the community has become. “There’s so many people out there in different regions,” said Goodman, who also serves as the team president. “I can go home and find a team in Texas. … Wherever you go, you connect to people so fast.” The team attracted members quickly, soon outgrowing Highland Bowl and the UA Mall. It has since held its practices at Himmel Park. With bludgers, brooms and a snitch in play, the UA Quidditch Team will go head-to-head with teams from



Washington, O r e g o n , California, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii and even Canada. The match will follow rules similar to those originally laid out by author J.K. Rowling herself. One similarity in particular is the brutality of the game. Without a “brackium emendo” charm for instant healing, Goodman said players on the team have suffered very real injuries, including broken bones and torn ACLs, that have set the team back. “We don’t wear any padding,” Goodman said. “You can get really hurt, so that really connects to the game [in the book].” While the team members may not be able to fly, they are able to keep several traditions from the “Harry Potter” series, including basic rules that state the team should consist of a keeper, three chasers, two beaters and a seeker. Different from in the series, the snitch is a ball attached to the waistband of a neutral player who has the freedom to adopt whatever personality or quirks they wish to reinforce the idea that the snitch has a mind of its own, Goodman said. With such a large pool of teams set to attend this year’s series of matches, the UA’s team said getting a bid would say a lot about how far it has come.

“It would be a big deal [to get a bid] because we’re kind of an underdog,” said Emily Rodela, a team member and biomedical sciences graduate student. “We’ve had some trouble with injuries and cohesion, since so many of us were new to the team this year. It would be a nice surprise, both to us and to kind of show the other teams that we’ve improved a lot since our first tournament.” The Western Regionals provide teams with an opportunity to advance to the International Quidditch Association’s World Cup VII at North Myrtle Beach in South Carolina set for later this spring. The competitions will allow the top 11 teams to play in the World Cup, and, after missing the bid by one slot last year, the team is motivated now more than ever to earn its slot and prove itself in the World Cup, said Savio Vu, a team member, coach and pre-pharmacy sophomore. “This year has been a struggle,” Vu said. “It has been more of a rebuilding stage. We have gotten a better chemistry, so I feel like with this Western Cup, we will be getting one of those 11 bids.” — Follow Arts reporter Jessica Schrecker @JKSchrecker

‘Blue’ captures adolescent love


alex guyton

here are so many negative views, opinions and criticisms swirling around this film, some of which were present in my mind when I sat down to watch it. These influences that had colored my view were wholly dismissed. “Blue Is the Warmest Color” is one of the finest films I have experienced. Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) is a 15 year old who is deceptively, simplistically beautiful. She has her clique of friends that she sees and converses with every day at school, but her always-parted lips and distant eyes when she finds herself alone suggest that she’s missing something. She dates a guy, but the sex constantly leaves her wishing she were somewhere else. They break up. Then, one day, as she’s crossing the street, Adèle passes a girl with wild blue hair. Adèle literally stops in her tracks, glancing backward to catch another glimpse. One night out, after she’s separated from her friends, Adèle “just happens” to walk into a lesbian bar, where, as chance would have it, she sees her blue-haired angel again. The stranger approaches her and introduces herself as Emma (Léa Seydoux), an out lesbian and a fourth-year fine arts student. Emma agrees to “tutor” Adèle in philosophy, and, as they spend more time together, Adèle can’t resist her. The two kiss, have very carnal sex and begin a relationship. Prior to this film, I had always believed that the towering screen of a cinema was best employed by visuals outside of the commonday, visceral images that could not be seen anywhere else. Fantastical, special-effects laden worlds, screaming car chases and even the simple cityscape at night, created out of infinite dots of light, seemed to be best-fitted for the silver screen’s ability to enrapture the eyes. What that list was missing, and now no longer does, is the human face. We, as an audience, experience the film through Adèle, and we are always by her side, sometimes uncomfortably close. Her face tinged with a spot of sauce from the spaghetti she slurps, tears and snot running down her face as she cries. I cannot praise the two main actresses, Exarchopoulos and Seydoux, enough. I have not seen two braver performances in recent

memory. The film tells its story implicitly and naturally. A decade of Adèle’s life passes over the course of the three hours, which is the shortest three hours that I’ve spent in a movie theater. Director Abdellatif Kechiche lingers longer on scenes than most other directors would. Adèle marching and shouting in a student protest, an outdoor party with Emma’s art gallery intellectuals discussing male and female orgasms, and Adèle’s literature class reading out loud and analyzing a passage all would be considered relatively mundane. Indeed, Manohla Dargis, chief film critic for The New York Times, describes the film as overly long and Kechiche as self-indulgent. I respectfully disagree. As this is a French art house film with subtitles — and not a Hollywood blockbuster that must clock in around two hours and whose plot is just as tightly wound as a watch — I did not feel the urge to check the time. These extraneous scenes are more brushstrokes to add detail to the expression of Adèle’s life. Though these scenes may feel inordinately long, the film passes long expanses of time and skips over seemingly important events without explicitly holding the audience’s hand. Adèle and Emma are in Adèle’s bed after introducing Emma to Adèle’s parents for the first time, and then the next shot is of the couple in their own bed, having moved in together. Without an explanation other than that things change, Emma goes from being a blue-haired student to an artist with a gallery and a more mature, professional haircut. Adèle’s messy look and teenage years inevitably give way to her wearing glasses and teaching young children in her early 20s. Speaking of the inevitable, Adèle and Emma’s relationship does deteriorate. They drift apart and then one of them cheats. Like in real life, love is lost organically and without much reason. The breakup scene, where one finds out that the other cheated, is so raw and emotionally violent that I felt like I was watching my own relationship die. I must now address the sexual elephant in the room: the eight minute-long sex scene between Adèle and Emma. This film is rated NC-17: It includes scissoring, fingering and oral sex, among other things. And such explicit language without euphemism feels completely necessary, as that is how the scene is shot.

the film maintains its reputation as one about young love, sexual realization, relationships and their collapse. “Blue” is a beautiful, transcendental experience.

Quat’sous Films

Rather than maintaining Adèle’s subjectivity, which makes the film so resonant, Kechiche shoots the scene pornographically. I cannot express how much of a disservice this is to the film, and it falls squarely on Kechiche’s shoulders. This is Adèle’s first time with a woman, yet she performs like a seasoned pornographic actress This single scene makes the film decidedly imperfect, which is a tragedy. Still, the film maintains its reputation as

one about young love, sexual realization, relationships and their collapse. “Blue” is a beautiful, transcendental experience.

Angostura fizz. Basically, a variation on a Trinidad sour. It’s a very old cocktail. It was conceived by [culinary author] Charles H. Baker, originally. It’s very bitter-heavy. It’s mostly angostura, a little bit of grenadine, citrus, egg white; it’s very spicy, very bitter. It’s a good winter cocktail, a good fall cocktail. Least favorite drink to make?

Thanksgiving films look promising Man out of You.”

alex guyton With plenty of downtime over Thanksgiving break next week, what better way to spend it than in a theater with your entire family? The break looks promising, with a number of films set for both wide and limited release, running the gamut of genres.


(Nov. 27, wide release) — Yeah, this is a college publication, and “Frozen” is an animated Disney movie, but we all need to get in touch with our inner child once in a while. Princess Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell) must venture into the mountains to find her ice-conjuring, selfexiled sister who unleashed eternal winter on the land of Arendelle. From the trailer, there will be at least one highsoaring sing-along song involving our main characters, so this might be right up the alley of those who have reembraced their love of belting out “Mulan’s” “I’ll Make A

ArizonA Daily

Wildcat EVENT CALENDAR CAMPUS EVENTS 16th Annual Milton Marathon Main Library, rooms A313 and A314, 1510 E. University Blvd. from 8 AM – 8 PM. Full reading of John Milton’s “Paradise Lost,” marking the 16th Annual Milton Marathon. Milton fans are welcome to drop in for parts of the reading or stay the whole day.

Physics Phun Night 7 PM – 8:30 PM in Physics and Atmospherics Sciences, Room 201. The Department of Physics invites you to experience an exciting night of experimentation. Witness UA scientists


(Nov. 27, wide release) — Spike Lee’s remake of the 2003 South Korean cult classic. Husband and father Joe Doucett (Josh Brolin) is kidnapped and held captive in solitary confinement by an unknown assailant for more than 20 years. He learns, via the television in his room, that his wife has been murdered, and he is the prime suspect. Then, inexplicably, he is released — with revenge the only thing on his mind. The film looks like a thoroughly depraved conspiracy thriller. How will it compare to the original?

“The Armstrong Lie” (Nov. 27, The Loft Cinema)

— Everyone’s favorite squeaky-clean cyclist finds himself on the silver screen. Director Alex Gibney initially set out to make a documentary on Armstrong’s comeback in 2009 after a four-year hiatus from the sport. However, as the US Anti-Doping Agency found Armstrong guilty of doping,


Gibney wanted answers from the man himself. Based on the trailer, Armstrong himself will open up to the camera and give honest insights. Well, maybe as honest as he can manage.

“As I Lay Dying” (Nov. 27, The Loft Cinema) —

James Franco continues on his quest to prove that he can do anything and everything, like getting then-Disney good girls Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens into neon bikinis (“Spring Breakers”). I greatly admire his willingness to throw himself at any kind of project. This time around, he directs and stars in an adaptation of William Faulkner’s classic novel on the death of Addie Bundren and her family’s journey to fulfill her wish to be buried in the town of Jefferson.

Don’t forget local stores this holiday season With Black Friday a week out, big-box stores are gearing up for sales that will no doubt spark riots outside of Walmarts and mob fights over Blu-ray players at Best Buy. But when the dust settles on Friday evening and shoppers refuel with Thanksgiving leftovers, they should stop and consider local businesses that have their own fair share of deals going on this holiday season. Tucson is home to a number of boutique clothing stores, record shops and vendors that really don’t fall into a particular category. Here’s a list of four stores worth stopping at on Small Business Saturday:

Pop-Cycle — 422 N. Fourth Ave. The Fourth Avenue boutique features a selection of clothes, home decor and jewelry, all made from recycled products, and many of which are produced by local artists. With an entire inventory made of re-purposed materials, the store is the perfect stop to grab a gift for that friend who’s always criticizing your energy use.

Ooo! Outside of Ordinary — 905 E. University Blvd. Only three years old this October, this Main Gate Square store offers a selection of housewares, clothing, jewelry and art. If its name wasn’t enough indication, Outside of Ordinary prides itself on offering a selection of out-of-the-box items that can’t really be found anywhere else. And with it being so close to campus, perhaps this is your first stop to find a gift for that friend who has always been so hard to buy for.

Nowhere to Land — 414 E. Seventh St.

For anyone interested in refurnishing that special someone’s home, Nowhere to Land might be a good place to start. The local shop just off of Sixth Street specializes in vintage and antique furniture. But the store doesn’t stop at furnishings — it also offers a variety of vintage knick-knacks, jewelry and art prints. While you’re there, stop by the store’s free library, where any book is fair game and there’s no need to return it.


E xotic T aco W ednesdays

Zia Records — 3370 E. Speedway Blvd. and 3655 N. Oracle Road You don’t need to wait until April’s Record Store Day to celebrate local record shops, too. With a pair of stores in Tucson, five in the Phoenix area and two in Las Vegas, Zia Records is a great place to find new and used CDs, vinyls and DVDs. So while it may be a challenge to find out what obscure indie band your friend is currently listening to without being too obvious, chances are you’ll be able to find a vinyl of their latest record at Zia.

Heisman House tour makes stop in Tucson JAMES KELLEY On Saturday, the Nissan Heisman House Tour, including former Wildcat star Antoine Cason, will come to Tucson before the Oregon game. Cason was an All-American cornerback and Thorpe Award-winner at Arizona. He had an interception for a touchdown and a punt return scored in Arizona’s 2007 win over No. 2 Oregon, and now plays for the Arizona Cardinals. He will appear from 11:30 a.m. to noon for the Chalk Talk session with ESPN anchor Lindsay Czarniak, and then sign autographs for an hour.

The Arizona stop is one of “10 marquee matchups” that the Nissan Heisman House Tour is going to do this season. Fans can take a picture with the Heisman Trophy, take a picture with former Hesiman winners in a digital photo booth, win prizes by playing games and create their own Heisman pose atop a trophy base, among other things. It will be located northeast of Arizona Stadium, next to McKale Center, at Campbell Avenue and University Boulevard. Admission is free. — Follow James Kelley @jameskelley520

El Tour invades Tucson on Saturday

ROSE ALY VALENZUELA The 31st annual El Tour de Tucson, presented by Casino Del Sol Resort, returns on Saturday. This year’s theme is “Better Together Through Bicycling.� “When we heard the theme for this year’s El Tour de Tucson, we all agreed that there had not been a better theme chosen,� said Nathan Levy, a member from Diamond Ventures. The total distances for El Tour will be 107, 81, 57 or 38 miles and the fun ride distances will be 10 miles, 5 miles and 1/4-mile. This year’s goal is to raise enough money to distribute among 42 charitable agencies. “There is no question about how valuable this event is to our community,� Levy said. “We

are always pleased with how much money El Tour de Tucson is able to raise through the dedication of so many wonderful individuals and for such a wide range of charitable organizations throughout the city.� Last year’s El Tour made enough money for 1 million doses of polio vaccine, enough to eradicate polio from the world. For 31 years, cyclists from all over the world have gathered together for this event, filling Tucson roads with different cultures. “The tour has enhanced Tucson’s reputation both nationally and internationally,� Levy said. El Tour boosts the city of Tucson’s economy as well. “This annual event significantly affects Tucson’s economic development and promotes the health and wellness of the Tucson community,� said Jim

Burns, CEO of Casino Del Sol. The University of Arizona Medical Center will be sponsoring this year’s fun ride for El Tour for the seventh straight year. The University of Arizona Medical Center — Diamond Children’s is one of the beneficiaries for this ride. “It’s a great honor to not only be a partner but also a beneficiary,� said Stephanie Boreale, director of marketing and network outreach at the UA. Tu Nidito Children & Family Services is also one of the primary beneficiaries for El Tour. “We are better because of cycling,� said Tu Nidito Executive Director Liz McCusker. “We were able to grow our services from 17 years ago helping about 12 families, to today to helping about 900 children in our community.�

Over the last 17 years, Tu Nidito has raised almost $3 million through El Tour. This event not only raises money, but also gives cyclists of all ages and abilities the chance to participate in one of the largest cyclist events in the country. Saturday is also “National Volunteer Day,� and there will be 2,200 volunteers in total at El Tour de Tucson. Something important to keep in mind while El Tour is in action is that for the safety of the cyclists who are participating in the race, law enforcement will be strict, and Tucson drivers must be cautious, organizers said. — Follow Rose Aly Valenzuela @RoseAlyVal PHOTO COURTESY OF MARILYN HALL

The women’s team beat second-place Stanford by 10 points at the NCAA Division I West Regional. “We’re in one of the toughest regions in the country, so to win the regional, that means a lot for the confidence,” said Larsson, who took 10th place in the West Regional with a time of 19:43. “We’re excited to see what we can do come nationals.” A calm environment helped the runners perform at regionals and could help them race well at the national meet. “We were really relaxed, so I didn’t find anything that was particularly challenging,” Larsson said. Huber said she and the coaching staff stress relaxation before a meet by telling the players not to put too much pressure on themselves. The team took it easy this week. “They know they have more left,” Huber said. “They were patient this last weekend. Just save whatever they have left for the big dance.” The women’s team finished in sixth place at last year’s NCAA Championships. The program’s best finish was in 1980, when the women’s team took second place. “As a team, we’re trying to keep the emotions in check and not get too overwhelmed about it, and run how we’ve been running the whole season,” Menefee said. The team will face off against the now No. 1-ranked Providence, which rose in the rankings after winning its last meet at the Northeast Regional Championships. Other teams competing include Arkansas, Butler, Colorado, Dartmouth, Florida State, Georgetown, Iowa State, Michigan, New Mexico, Stanford and others. The women will work for a top finish in their last meet at the national championship. “We’re just really looking forward to it and really hoping to do something big,” Menefee said.

Hockey brings back teddy bear tradition JOEY PUTRELO No. 12 Arizona hockey will face its fourth top-five opponent of the season this weekend, hosting No. 4 Iowa State for a two-game series at the Tucson Convention Center. Tonight is the second annual Teddy Bear Toss, sponsored by NOVA Home Loans. This promotion allows fans to bring a new teddy bear to the game and throw it on the ice after the Wildcats score their first goal. Last season more than 900 were collected and donated to Toys for Tots. This year the stuffed toys will be donated to Aviva Children’s Services and given to children in foster care within the Tucson Community. “If we can score first and have all those teddy bears on the ice, it could be to our advantage; I think it would rattle them a bit,” said UA head coach Sean Hogan. “It’s a cool thing; hopefully the community gets involved in it and it becomes something people want to go to.” Tonight’s game also features another $1 Hot Dog Night. The UA has offered this promotion every Friday night this November. So far Arizona (10-8-0, 3-3-0 WCHL) is 5-4-0

at home in the 2013-14 campaign, outscoring opponents 43-27. The Cyclones (16-3-1) carry a hefty amount of momentum after sweeping then-No. 2 Minot State at home, outscoring it 6-2. However, it was announced Thursday that ISU’s head coach of 43 years, Al Murdoch, is resigning. Murdoch, 67, said in a press release he simply felt it was time to step down and he wanted to go out on top after the Minot sweep. The Iowa State players elected first-year assistant Jason Fairman to take over as interim head coach. “I’ve known him [Murdoch] for about 10 years, and he was the face of that program for sure,” Hogan said. “He’s a founding member of this league, so it’s too bad.” Freshman Garrett Patrick will likely be in net both nights again this weekend for the Wildcats, though senior Steven Sisler, who has been nursing an injury, has practiced all week and may start one of the games if needed. “It’s helped in practice, taking a bunch of shots, working on fundamentals and perfecting them, rebound control and being able to control the game,” Sisler said.

The Wildcats will play again on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. “We just got to get back to the little things: working hard, battling and making good

passes,” said Andrew Murmes, Arizona’s leading point scorer and assistant captain. “Iowa State’s obviously going to look to come here and get two wins, and we’re going to stop them.” — Follow Joey Putrelo @JoeyPutrelo

Women’s basketball back on road to redemption ROBERTO PAYNE Arizona women’s basketball heads on the road again to face the University of the Pacific Tigers on Saturday at 6 p.m. in Stockton, Calif. The Wildcats (1-3) are coming off their third loss of the season and their fourth game in a row that has come down to the wire. Their most recent loss came at the hands of the Stephen F. Austin Ladyjacks on Wednesday in Arizona’s regular season home opener. The Tigers (2-2) are on a two-game losing streak, and Saturday will mark their first game since Nov. 17, when they lost at Fordham with a score of 84-63. Pacific is led by junior forward Kendall Kenyon, who averages a team-leading 16.8 points per game to go along with 10.8 rebounds per game. Kenyon will be the second straight dominant post player the Wildcats have faced, after playing against Stephen F. Austin’s junior center Porsha Roberts on Wednesday. Arizona held Roberts to five

points and four rebounds in the game, which was well below her season averages of 17.8 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game. Arizona will need a similar defensive effort against Kenyon if the team hopes to get its second win on the road this season. UA junior guard Candice Warthen is coming off her worst statistical game of the season. The 5-foot-5 guard scored a season-low 15 points on 5-19 shooting and struggled to get open looks throughout the game against the Ladyjacks. “It was disappointing,” Warthen said after the SFA loss. “We had like a 12-point lead at halftime, and we didn’t come out like we should have. It’s always tough when you can’t get the team going offensively. To top that off we were fouling too much and couldn’t make any plays. We just couldn’t get any stops; when you can’t get any stops and you can’t score it’s all bad.” Offensive execution was a key concept in the post-game comments after the Wildcats’ last loss. The Wildcats shot a

season-low 36.5 percent from the field, including converting only 18.5 percent of their field goals in the second half. Head coach Niya Butts said she knows the team has to do a better job offensively if it is to consistently win games this season. “We didn’t run one offensive play all the way through,” Butts said after the SFA loss. “It wasn’t because they made us break them, but because we weren’t disciplined offensively. That leads to our 5-27 [field goal percentage] performance [in the second half] so hopefully we can go back to the film and learn from our mistakes. It’s one of those things where you need to tie your shoes back up tomorrow and be ready to play.” Senior guard Carissa Crutchfield said they will get their energy back. “We never came together, I guess, but we will come back,” Crutchfield said after the SFA loss. — Follow Roberto Payne @RPsportreporter

Wildcats seek to impress LA family, friends ROSE ALY VALENZUELA Arizona indoor volleyball (19-9, 9-7 Pac12) had to make adjustments to regain its momentum for what’s left of the season. After sweeping Utah and Colorado at home and moving up five spots in the RPI to No. 20, the Wildcats travel to Los Angeles for their last road matches of the season against No. 8 USC (22-5, 12-4 Pac-12) and UCLA (14-12, 5-11 Pac12) on Friday and Sunday. It looks like the adjustments they’ve been working on have been paying off. “If we can continue on with the trend that we’re on right now, then I think by the time we get to tournament, hopefully we will be even … better than we are right now,” said head coach Dave Rubio. Many players have been making changes, which has helped the team improve overall. “I think our attackers are making some pretty good choices,” Rubio said. “Our middle [blockers] are more efficient.” The team practices have become more positive, Rubio said, adding that the team has

had the best practices of the year recently. The Wildcats have four games left in the regular season. “Practices have been a little bit harder, so that helps us a lot to just be more prepared for the game,” said junior outside hitter Madi Kingdon. Arizona swept USC 3-0 (27-25, 25-21, 2521) at home on Oct. 20, when the Trojans were ranked No. 1. Before the win, the Wildcats hadn’t beaten a No. 1 team in 20 years. USC will host Arizona while having its first two-game losing streak of the season. When UCLA visited McKale Center on Oct. — Dave Rubio, 18, the UA swept head coach the Bruins (2522, 25-20, 25-20). The Bruins’ offense is ranked in the top half of the conference in almost every offensive category. However, their defense is ranked in the bottom half. Kingdon led the offense for Arizona when the team swept the Bruins. She recorded 13 kills, followed by junior outside hitter Jane Croson with 10 kills. With 12 Wildcats on the team coming from California, members of the team said they are

really looking forward to Friday and Sunday’s matches. “We’re going to L.A., where everybody’s from, so I think everybody wants to play well in front of all their friends and family,” Kingdon said. Friday’s match against USC is scheduled to

Women swimmers take on Boise State NICOLE COUSINS Arizona women’s swimming hosts Boise State on Saturday at noon at the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center. The meet will overlap with the Arizona Diving Invitational, where 11 teams will be competing, including Boise State and Arizona. . The UA women’s team is 3-1 this season, having lost only to USC, 133-167, on Nov. 9. The men, who have only competed in three dual meets this season, do not have any other meets before the Texas Invite. “Our guys are still going to be ready for Texas,” said interim head coach Rick DeMont. “We are time-trialing them before the meet on Saturday to get them fired up for the invitational.” Sophomore Emma Schoettmer, who will compete on Saturday, has won each of her individual breaststroke events so far this year. She completed the 200-yard breaststroke in 2:11.98 against USC, almost three seconds ahead of senior opponent Stina Gardell, who finished in 2:14.13. “I’m pretty confident [in the breaststroke] right now,” Schoettmer said. “I’m extremely happy that my times are where they are.”


EMMA SCHOETTMER swims the 200-yard breaststroke at the UA vs. UCLA swimming and diving meet on Nov. 8 at home. Schoettmer will compete against Boise State this weekend after having won all her individual events this year.

early interception or big tackle, Oregon’s momentum could work in the Wildcats’ favor. But he’ll need to do this all game long, as the Ducks’ offense is relentless.


Captain All-American

Recently, the Arizona athletic department has been promoting running back Ka’Deem Carey as “Captain All-American.” Saturday, the defending first team All-American running back will need to have not just a typical 150-yard rushing game, but instead something more heroic. If Carey can have a career game, not only will it give Arizona a huge upset victory, but it will boost his Heisman and NFL draft credibility.

You might have had trouble pronouncing Oregon cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu before last season’s game with the Ducks, but you probably had it mastered by the end, because his name was called a lot. In last season’s 49-0 road loss to Oregon, former Arizona quarterback Matt Scott ran into trouble against the Ducks because he couldn’t convert in the red zone (a current problem with this Wildcats team) and he threw four interceptions, two of which were picked off by Expre-Olomu. Expre-Olomu then returned the two interceptions, one for a touchdown, for a total of 54 yards. The cornerback had the fifth-most total yards on the team that day. Current Arizona quarterback B.J. Denker can’t repeat Scott’s mistakes and fail to take care of the ball, especially near the endzone. The Wildcats will have plenty of chances, but they’ll have to take advantage of all of them.

the 200y freestyle in their dual meet against UNLV on Oct. 25. DeMont said he is interested to see how the meet on Saturday will go because it is not a traditional NCAA dual meet. Instead, the meet is more sprintoriented, including 50y sprints



It never rains at Arizona Stadium

Oregon is known for its ironic home saying “It never rains at Autzen Stadium.” Well, it actually rarely rains at Arizona Stadium — except for this Saturday when the Ducks come to town. The National Weather Service has the high for Saturday in Tucson at a cool 59 degrees with a 90 percent chance of rain. As if the football gods don’t want the Wildcats to even have a slight chance to win, they made the Ducks feel right at home. While Ducks love water, we all know ’Cats can’t stand it, and if the forecast comes true, expect there to be sloppy play on Saturday.


Can’t score in the red zone

The Wildcats have the second-worst efficient offense in the red zone in the Pac-12. Scoring 79 percent of the time when they enter the red zone, the Wildcats rank

in all four strokes. “I don’t think there is even a 1,000y freestyle event,” DeMont said. “I’ve personally never coached a meet like this. It should be fun.” The meet should serve as a good time indicator for sprinters like seniors Geer and Gracie Finnegan, who regularly compete in sprint events. “I think I’m doing two fly events and the 200y freestyle, so it will be nice so that we aren’t as tired and get to do events we don’t normally do,” Finnegan said. “I’m personally just focusing on a chance to do more racing.” DeMont said the team’s main focus is still the Texas Invitational the week after Thanksgiving. So far, the Wildcats are on track to have their best performances in Austin, starting on Dec. 5. Until then, Schoettmer said she is taking it one meet at a time. “My goal is to approach every meet like how my high school coach said to: Swim it like I want to swim it, when I want to swim it,” Schoettmer said.

87th in the country for red zone offense. In their previous two games against UCLA on Nov. 9 and Washington State on Nov 16., the Wildcats got burned because they couldn’t convert a successful drive into either a touchdown or field goal. The Wildcats love to go for it on fourth down when they’re close to the end zone. However, converting just 42 percent of their fourth down attempts might mean they should hold off from doing that against the Ducks.

Tra’Mayne Bondurant has been one of the most important Wildcat defenders this season, if not the most important. The Vallejo, Calif., native is one of the conference’s best when it comes to defending the pass. Bondurant’s four interceptions lead the team this season, and his eight broken-up passes are the eighth-most in the Pac-12. And earlier this year he missed a game with a concussion. Oregon is going to try and spread the ball out to many receivers, and with quarterback Marcus Mariota still recovering from a knee injury, expect the Ducks to throw even more often. If Bondurant can get an

Cross Country competes for national championship BRITTNEY SMITH


NICCI CORBIN runs in the Dave Murray Invitational on Sept. 20 in Tucson. Corbin will run for the championship this weekend in Terre Haute, Ind.

Fresh off a win from the NCAA West Regional meet last Friday, the No. 2 Arizona women’s cross country team will run in the NCAA Championships on Saturday in Terre Haute, Ind. Running for Arizona will be sophomore Kayla Beattie, junior Stephanie Bulder, sophomore Molly Callahan, junior Nicci Corbin, junior Hanna Peterson, senior Elvin Kibet, freshman Maria Larsson and senior Erin Menefee. For the team to come up big at nationals, Arizona will need a good fifth runner finish, confidence and a focused yet

relaxed mindset. “As far as five, six, seven, we’re just going to try to fill that gap that we’ve been talking about all year — really see if we can bring the number five runner up closer to our four,” assistant coach Mo Huber said. “It’s not just going to be four runners. It’s going to be that fifth runner and the sixth runner to really step up and to help the team win the national championship.” In the West Regional, the fourth and fifth runners had a huge gap. The fourth scored runner for Arizona was Corbin, with a 12th place finish and a time of 19:54. The fifth and final scored runner was Bulder with a 45th place finish and a time

of 20:39. Win aside, closing the gap further could help Arizona score lower and finish higher in its final meet. “I’m hoping that our five, six, seven can really push forward and place as high as we can so we can win that national championship,” said Menefee, who came in 58th place with a time of 20:49. The women expressed confidence after their last win. “Everyone did really well, and I think that we are more focusing on the kind of mental aspect of it,” Menefee said, “racing with confidence, and knowing that we didn’t need to do anything super special.”
