Rep. praises UA stimulus dollars By Will Ferguson ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords spoke Monday afternoon at a presentation of UA research funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Giffords gave a brief presentation on the importance of promoting higher education at both the state and national level and conveyed her continuing support for the ongoing research the university is performing. Following her presentation, Giffords asked researchers in attendance to stand

up and be honored for their groundbreaking work. “The best way that we can get our country back on track is to continue to lead the world in research and investment into what you all do here at the University of Arizona,”said Giffords. So far, the University of Arizona has received $82 million in stimulus funding for 125 research projects since President Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law last February. In addition to funding research, federal stimulus funds distributed through the Reinvestment Act have contributed $500

million to the southern Arizona economy. Several UA researchers at the presentation expressed their gratitude for public tax dollars to aid them in their research. “We will make every effort to ensure that we provide back to our taxpayers exactly what the stimulus package is meant to provide — jobs, workforce, development and more knowledge and innovations,” said Leslie Tolbert, vice president for research at the UA. Tolbert said funding from the Reinvestment Act stimulated the biggest wave of research proposal writing at the UA to date.

“Despite extremely stiff competition throughout the country, researchers at the UA have been very successful in winning stimulus dollars,”said Tolbert. The 10 largest UA stimulus awards amounted to a combined total of approximately $41,223,181, and included scientific research in fields such as chemistry, astronomy, hydrology and health care. Tolbert went on to explain that the federal administration considers several factors when deciding what research projects in which to invest stimulus funding. GIFFORDS, page 5


There was a factual error printed in Monday’s article about UO cheerleader Katelynn Johnson sustaining injuries from an object thrown to the field due to a newsroom miscommunication. The article stated that ASUA did not respond to requests for comment from the Arizona Daily Wildcat. “This is an unfortunate incident that does not positively reflect on the UA,” Associated Students of the University of Arizona president Chris Nagata wrote in an e-mail late Sunday night to reporter Brian Mori. Wildcat management regrets a newsroom e-mail oversight that prevented the reporter’s updated story from running in the newspaper. Zona Zoo, the ASUA department that runs football games also released a statement Monday on their Web site apologizing for the injury. The Wildcat has received several comments and e-mails from UA students, disgusted with the behavior of fans who threw objects onto the field, some of which will be printed in today and tomorrow’s Opinions sections.

Zona Zoo made the following statement regarding the incident: “We would like to express our disappointment in the misconduct that lead to the unfortunate injury of University of Oregon cheerleader, Katelynn Johnson. Unruly behavior has no place in any of our sporting events. Safety is our first priority and as fans that responsibility starts with ourselves. Our thoughts go out to Ms. Johnson and her family with hopes of her speedy recovery.”

Rec Expansion to go platinum By Jennifer Koehmstedt ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

The Student Recreation Expansion is poised to become the first university building in the nation to reach the highest level of sustainability certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. The U.S. Green Building Council uses the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, also known as LEED, rating system to give newly constructed building points based on sustainable design features.

Buildings are awarded silver, gold or platinum certification, depending on the number of points awarded. The Student Recreation Expansion has earned enough points to become gold certified, but is one point away from receiving platinum certification, said Juliette Moore, director of Campus Recreation . LEED certification awards points in six different categories of sustainable design: sustainable site, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environment quality, and innovation

and design, said Tim Stevens, a design architect for the project. “We’re pretty strong in every single one of those categories,” Stevens said. According to the university’s Planning, Design and Construction Web site, the Student Recreation Expansion will use water harvesting, local concrete and concrete masonry products, and recycled building materials which will divert more than 75 percent of construction waste from landfills. The building will also control daylight in order to conserve

energy. “It is a building that is very much suited to its environment in a sense that all the harsh solar exposures are protected from the sun,” Stevens said. “There’s a lot of passive solar strategies just in terms of how we use deep overhangs to protect the south side … The spaces are welllit, so that during the day we don’t have to turn on the lights if we don’t want to.” Because student fees fund the REC CENTER, page 5

UA film places top 16, moves on to finals By Michelle Monroe ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The UA will be represented at Campus MovieFest 2009 with a film titled “Scene 5.” Campus MovieFest is a competition where college students around the United States make a five minute-long movie in one week and compete for software, equipment and glory. “Scene 5”won Best Picture at the UA campus level, and placed in the top 16 at the Western Regionals, giving them a spot in the final competition. “Scene 5” is about a nerdy director who decides to act for the first time. He casts his crush as his love interest for a heart-pounding make-out session in, you guessed it, “Scene 5.” The plot thickens when his plan is discovered. The film was a joint effort between twin brothers James and Joseph Tullar. “As team leader and producer, Photo courtesy of James Tullar

Wildcat managing editor cited by UAPD By Brian Mori ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

The managing editor of the Arizona Daily Wildcat Shain Bergan, 21, was cited for disorderly conduct on Saturday morning after police said he forcibly took a sign from another ESPN “College GameDay” spectator and tried to run away with it. UAPD officer Lindsey Kunz wrote in her report that she watched as Bergan ran past game security and knocked her over as she tried to stop him by putting her arms out. “The male ran straight into me, causing us both to fall to the ground with me landing on top of the male,” Kunz wrote in the UAPD report. The incident occurred at 5:42 a.m. near the UA Mall. In a phone interview Monday evening, Bergan told the Wildcat that he was punched in the face by a man wearing Oregon clothing after they had exchanged verbal taunts. Bergan said he was not injured by the punch and tore down a paper poster that the man had been holding with other Oregon fans. “I thought I was being the bigger man by not punching him back,” he said. There was no mention of alcohol in the report. “I had been drinking several hours earlier but I was not drunk,” Bergan said. According to Kuntz, Americo Richard Maloney, the victim listed, told her he did not want to press charges for theft or criminal damage. There was no mention of physical injuries or assault in the report. Bergan resigned from the Daily Wildcat on Monday evening. In a statement to Editor in Chief Alex Dalenberg, Bergan apologized for what he called“idiotic actions.” His court date for the disorderly conduct charge is Dec. 10. Disorderly conduct is a class one misdemeanor.

observe proper etiquette by kissing others on the cheek instead of the lips and to avoid touching the person being kissed except on the shoulder or the upper arms. Debrett’s etiquette adviser Jo Bryant warns people who are not feeling well to avoid parties altogether.

She also urges those who have been drinking a lot to steer away from the mistletoe — because their “social skills will be impaired.” She did not elaborate on the swine flu implications of that.

NEW YORK — An interactive exhibit featuring life-size models of Leonardo da Vinci’s 500-year-old inventions and machines is opening in New York City’s Times Square. Although best known for painting the masterpiece “Mona Lisa,” da Vinci also designed a fantastical array of futuristic flying machines, robots, weapons and mechanical devices. Highlights of the exhibit opening Friday include the “Great Kite” flying machine, a working prototype of his “Self-Propelled Cart,” and physical models of his mechanical bat and lion. Visitors also can use touch screens to turn the artist’s sketches into three-dimensional models. “Leonardo da Vinci’s Workshop” runs through March at The Discovery Times Square Exposition.

Fast Facts The average American received eight birthday cards and four presents on their birthday.

Up in the Air

Ryan Bingham’s job as a Career Transition Counselor–he fires people–has kept him airborne for years. Although he has come to despise his line of work, he has come to love the culture of what he calls “Airworld,” finding contentment within pressurized cabins, anonymous hotel rooms, and a wardrobe of wrinkle-free slacks. With a letter of resignation sitting on his boss’s desk, and the hope of a job with a mysterious consulting firm, Ryan Bingham is agonizingly close to his ultimate goal, his Holy Grail: one million frequent flier miles. But before he achieves this long-desired freedom, conditions begin to deteriorate. With perception, wit, and wisdom, Up in the Air combines brilliant social observation with an acute sense of the psychic costs of our rootless existence, and confirms Walter Kirn as one of the most savvy chroniclers of American life.

Thirty-five percent of people have admitted to giving unwanted presents to someone else. The month with the most birthdays is August. The month with the fewest birthdays is February. Published by Anchor Books

The Daily Wildcat. Flex your mental muscles daily with the crossword!

Swim’s Schluntz named American Rhodes Scholar By Mike Schmitz ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT In her time at Arizona, senior freestyle swimmer Justine Schluntz has been known for her fast timesplits and NCAA championship prowess. But after becoming one of only 32 people to be named a 2009 American Rhodes Scholar, it’s obvious that Schluntz is much more than just an athlete. “Working with her on her essay and also reading her letters of reference, it wasn’t just ‘Hey she’s a great student’ or ‘Hey she’s a great swimmer,’” said Karna Walter, the Director of Nationally Competitive Scholarships at the UA .“It was as much, ‘Hey this is a woman of incredible character and leadership who has shown that in so many different ways in so many different settings.’“ Schluntz graduated from the UA summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering last May. The 2008 NCAA championship member and nine-time AllAmerican is now a graduate student in fluid dynamics. Schluntz is also a Big Sister and represents the swim and dive team as a member of the UA Student Athlete Advisory Committee. Needless to say, Schluntz has taken on quite the workload, and has been stellar in virtually every aspect. She graduated early after going through four years of undergraduate as a mechanical engineering major with only one “B” to her name. In the athletics department, she

redshirted her freshman year due to a shoulder injury but came back the next season and made an instant impact in the water. “She became an All-American, national champion, top-8 finisher in multiple events, all with the class load that she maintains,” said head coach Frank Busch. “To say that she would be deserving (of the award) would be the biggest understatement out there.” “She’s someone dedicated to doing the right way and puts in all of the time necessary to have success,” Busch added. “That’s just off-thecharts dedication, desire and drive.” That dedication, desire and drive helped Schluntz become one of 32 people chosen from a pool of 805 applicants to earn the chance to study at the University of Oxford in England for three years. She began her application at the beginning of the summer and met with Dr. Walter for about sixto-eight weeks to work on her essay. Each applicant would apply to the school and earn a nomination through their university. Those nominations were then narrowed down to 12 people for each of the 16 districts. Schluntz and the other 11 people in her district traveled to Colorado Springs, Col., last Saturday where she was interviewed and eventually named a Rhodes Scholar. Even with all of the accolades in and outside of the pool, Schluntz still couldn’t believe that she won the award. “I was shocked, I couldn’t believe it,” Schluntz said. “I started crying a little

bit. It’s a kind of thing where no matter how good you think you are, there’s no way you can expect to win.” Attaining the scholarship that’s worth an estimated $50,000 per year is certainly no easy feat. While she clearly put the time and effort into winning such an honor, Schluntz cites the standards of the UA swim and dive team as one of the major reasons for her success. “I’m really lucky because it’s just the culture of our team, that’s why we have so many successful people,” Schluntz said. “So when you come on this team as a freshman, and you have successful and motivated people who are leading the team, it’s hard to go wrong.” The standout freestyle swimmer became the first UA athlete ever to be named a Rhodes Scholar. Schluntz plans to make the best of the honor and will look into the detraction of tidal energy from the ocean as a renewable resource while at Oxford. “I want to learn about this resource, tidal energy, and try to advocate it back in the states, where it’s not so well known yet,” Schluntz said. Schluntz has always had high goals for herself, and at this point in her swimming and academic career, she has accomplished virtually everything that she possible could have, leaving there little reason to believe she will stop now. “I’m very confident that she will take it as far as she can take it and will tap as much potential as possible,” Walter said of Schluntz’ tidal energy plan. “I definitely wouldn’t bet against her.”

IN PROFILE Justine Schluntz Age: 22 Class: Graduate student Hometown: Albuquerque, N.M. Event: Freestyle

Accomplishments: 2008 NCAA championship member Nine-time All-American Participated in 2004 and 2008 U.S. Olympic trials 2009 NCAA Top Finishes 200 freestyle relay: 1st 1:26.20 400-medley relay: 1st 3:28.31


Daily Wildcat: How does this award compare to the 2008 NCAA title and all of your personal accolades? Justine Schluntz: Two years ago, when we won the NCAA title as a team, one of the things we had done was win the 800y relay. It was a relay we really weren’t supposed to win and really didn’t think about winning until the middle of the race. The feeling I had after that was just overwhelmed because you didn’t even consider that you could actually win it. It was the same exact emotion for me here and my reaction was pretty much the same also. It was the same exact thing, just the only difference was having my teammates around me to celebrate. That’s the only thing I would have wished was different.


Twins produce hit for five-day competition

continued from page 1

I organized everybody, got everything together, hauled equipment around, got the props required for the scripts, while I let the director do his job.” James Tullar, a freshman who aspires to be in the media arts program said. Joseph Tullar, a science sophomore and James’ twin, wrote and directed the movie. “The joke is that James, the man in the movie, directed it (in the movie) but in reality my twin brother Joseph directed and wrote it,” James Tullar said. Unlike other movies in the competition that were written prior to the start date, “Scene 5” was written, cast, and shot in the five allotted days. “Ours was written particularly for the Campus MovieFest,” James Tullar said.“There was no pre-planning except getting the equipment together.” Campus MovieFest provides teams with equipment to use, but the Tullar brothers didn’t need it for “Scene 5.” “We had a better camera than they provided, an HD Sony camera and a better microphone, our own tripod and own boom mike,” James Tullar said. “You had to edit the movie on (Campus MovieFest’s) laptop. That’s how they knew you edited it.” The most difficult part of filming was the choreography for the gruesome opening scenes. “There are some pretty intense live-action blood scenes that took a lot of choreographing and timing,” James Tullar said. “We had to go through about three changes of clothes and everybody got covered in blood.” The team is looking forward to the final competition, since the biggest hurdle is behind them. “The hardest and most dense competition is out of the way,” James Tullar said in reference to the many California schools competing. “We’re going to do a lot

better in Los Angeles because our movie is very witty and intellectual unlike other ones that appeal to the lowest common denominator,” James Tullar said. “It’s all the awesome film schools I’m afraid to go up against (such as the) East Coast, Chicago area, and those other film schools.” However, James and Joseph Tullar aren’t new to the film industry. “We make movies all around town and we’ve been doing it since sophomore year of high school,” James Tullar said. “We’ve won a ton of local film contests.” On Nov. 6 the team won another film contest at The Loft Cinema’s monthly First Friday Shorts , walking away with the $200 grand prize for a different film. Every year the best of the First Friday Shorts winners is chosen for the grand finale. “In May we won the grand finale at The Loft (which was) $1000,” James Tullar said. James Tullar says their previous experience helped them with this time-crunched competition. “We sort of have an established team or ‘pod’ group of people who really enjoy helping out in our movies because we’ve been so successful,” James Tullar said. “People stay and want to help out.” The actors enjoy working with the group because of the chemistry during production. “My favorite part was probably was the communal feeling,” said Edward Whitney, an actor who has worked with the Tullars on several other films. “I loved the allowance of free flow and the allowance of off the top of our head lines and camaraderie.” James Tullar said to have an engaging film a team must have well-rounded talent.“One of the most important things to have is great actors, and to bring it all together you need tight professional editing,” he said.

PRO/CON Wildcat columnists sound off on new Wildcat online commenting policy, which requires commentators to register before leaving comments on articles

Today, not allowing comments; tomorrow, not allowing dissent

Back in the olden days when dinosaurs roamed the earth and printed newspapers were the only form of journalism, no one could have imagined that commenting anonymously on a column or article with which you disagree would take so little time and effort. But actual, physical evening papers and hand-written letters to the editor have changed, and we have a duty to evolve along with them. The issue of whether to allow anonymous comments on the Web site of a university newspaper should really be one of convenience and efficiency. Busy students should not have to remember yet another log-in and password just to write, “Hey, nice article,” or “Maybe you could have researched this issue a little more.” The log-in process may filter out the more incendiary personal attacks, but it also deters the intelligent rejoinders. By the time you remember the correct email/password combination of the millions you have registered for various web applications, you’ve probably forgotten what you had to say in the first place. The old forum, which included a field for name, email, comment and verification code, allowed busy students to register an opinion efficiently. As the largest student-run forum of conversation at the UA, the Daily Wildcat should make the discussion of news and events as quick and easy as possible. It is true that personal attacks on an author of an article accomplish little, but they are also quite rare. Censoring all comments from those who would rather not take the time to register or prefer to leave a false name does much more harm to a journalist than any puerile name-calling could. If people don’t comment, we can’t know what is important to them. As a student journalist, one must be willing to take the flattering letters from aged alumni along with the not as articulate, yet still valid criticism from a fellow student who chooses to call himself “GoCats834.” Suppressing discourse does not stop the sentiment behind whatever the commenters might have wanted to say, it just means we hear less about what people think. A reader may have opinions that counter a columnist’s opinion that he or she might not want to attach his or her name to for personal or even political reasons. They should be afforded the privilege of posting their comments anonymously in the new incarnation of media. As the supposed voice of the students, we want, we need, to hear what the students are thinking, whether or not those students want to leave a name, email and full mailing address. The students who prefer to comment anonymously should be afforded that right. They are not the journalists, after all. We are. The core of this issue that should leave no question in the minds of any journalist or consumer of news, is how close it comes to suppressing freedom of speech. If anonymous dissenting comments are not allowed today, the day when dissent is not allowed at all seems much too close for comfort. — Anna Swenson in a sophomore majoring in English. She can be reached at

New policy promotes smarter dialogue

The Wildcat columnists probably receive the most online criticism from commentators than any other writers on staff. Opinions excite people in all meanings of the word, and if a columnist covers a controversial issue or stands by a rejected idea, he may never hear the end of it. While I agree that the new commenting policy may discourage readers from giving the writers more constructive feedback and criticism, I also feel that some of the commentators can be outrageous and extremely unconstructive at times, and that helps no one. When someone says something along the lines of, “this author is a complete idiot, he should be fired,” nothing has been accomplished. The anonymous commentator said nothing of substance and resorted to personal attacks. Many of these readers don’t know how to differentiate between the columnist and the column itself, so the responses promote a negative, unintelligent atmosphere. The Wildcat does not aim to suppress anyone, but if a commentator just seeks to embarrass an author, he should at least take the time to register his name and email address with the Web site. That way, people will see that this commentator has taken the time to legitimize his name and maybe they’ll actually take the comment seriously. But, if this commentator doesn’t want to take the extra two minutes to sign up online, he obviously doesn’t care enough about creating a smart dialogue. Anyone can still comment on the online articles. It’s slightly harder to leave a response, but it’s not impossible, and I hope that this new process will encourage thoughtful messages and discussion. I’ll even respect the rabid commentators more if they go the extra mile to register their contact information on the Wildcat Web site. — Laura Donovan is the opinions editor. She can be reached at


Oregon president thanks UA for hospitality

My wife Jan and I want to thank the fans in red who made our recent trip to Tucson enjoyable. Many University of Oregon fans spoke to us before and during the game of how welcoming and friendly the UA fans were. This was our impression in walking the campus as well. The unfortunate bottle-throwing incident after the game does not reflect our overwhelmingly positive experience. I am very grateful to UA President Shelton for his kindness, his concern, and his quick response. The unfortunate incident is not indicative of the character and class of the University of Arizona’s great fans. Richard W. Lariviere President, University of Oregon

Editorial Board member responsible for some of football game embarrassment

I completely agree with the Daily Wildcat editorial board when they write that fan behavior at Saturday’s football game and “College GameDay” event was both embarrassing and unacceptable. What the Daily Wildcat forgot to mention, however, was the fact that it was one of the members of its editorial board — the group responsible for formulating the opinion calling it such — was responsible for one of the most egregious acts of the weekend. When this person took it upon himself, prior to “College GameDay,” to tear down a sign that an older man was holding, that read “God bless the Oregon Ducks,” they crossed the line and kicked off a day of embarrassment for the UA and its fans. So I guess it’s OK when you censor other people, just not when they censor you. As a former Wildcat writer and assistant editor I know that newspapers make news out of other people’s misfortunes, but this just means that when people who work for the newspaper paper screw up they should be held to an equal, if not a higher standard. To try and push this under the rug is unacceptable, unfathomable and frankly hypocritical. I don’t want to be the one to call this person out by name, rather, I think they should take the opportunity to come clean and take

responsibility for their actions. Or maybe, it’s time for them to grow some balls and confess already. Ian Friedman Journalism senior

‘GameDay’ Top 10 article promoted bad behavior among football fans

In the article “GameDay Top 10,” No. 2 and No. 1 should have the writer eliminated from his position. As an alumnus, I can tell you that as a student, the Daily Wildcat has always been highly respected … until now. No. 2, which suggests “Pick a fight with a Duck,” is nothing but disrespectful and enticing to an ignorant student. Even if it is a small number of the population that could have been all they needed to feel like fighting and water bottle throwing would be accepted. No. 1: Rush the field? We were as good as Oregon! We would be 8-2 coming into the game minus a couple of fluke plays that didn’t go our way. Telling the students to rush the field was telling them that we didn’t belong in the stadium with Oregon … which was not even close to the truth! Also, if you were going to write about rushing the field why wouldn’t you talk about how students rushed the field too early last time Oregon was here and that they need to wait until the clock hits zero? I am furious about this article and a lot of high-powered alumni are too. There needs to be a reprint apologizing for No. 2 or No. 1 at the least.

Disagreement a blessing over Thanksgiving Anna Swenson columnist


he phrase heard most often over Thanksgiving dinner at the Swenson household: “God, Dad, you are so dumb!” Like many college students, I disagree with my parents on many, many issues. From gay marriage, to the drinking age, to whether Bush was the best or the worst president in U.S. history, we get into some pretty violent fork gesturing on issues both trivial and serious. I call my dad “dumb” with a laugh, and he jokingly tells me I’ve drunk the Kool-Aid. I’ve given up trying to convince him of anything, and I think he has pretty much given up on changing my mind, too. But for all the times I pretend to throw my napkin at him across the table, I’ve learned from what I used to think was just my old man’s stubborn closed-mindedness. While not seeing eye-to-eye with Dad used to bother me more, it wasn’t really because I thought he was stupid or uninformed on the issues. I thought he was wrong. With regards to every issue, I thought there was one right answer, which was of course my answer. I didn’t want to listen to him or anything he had to say about things we didn’t share beliefs on. But in moving away from home and having to deal with people who don’t answer dissenters with a smiling chide, I learned that I was lucky to disagree with my dad. Now that I’ve heard his more conservative take on the issues, I can consider my position more fully and argue a point more effectively.

I am a more informed voter for all the arguments I’ve had with my parents. I’m barely an adult, what would I know of property taxes, insurance policy and health care if I didn’t listen to my parents? Being incensed by things my Dad would say inspired me to look up what a policy actually is and what other people say about it. I am so grateful for the contrast my conservative parents provide to the mostly liberal atmosphere in a university — it has made me both a more passionate and a more considerate voter and person. We usually think we’re right because we’re young, potent and passionate, but it’s convenient to forget that our parents were once young as well. My mom graduated from the UA in December of 1981, a time of economic recession. Her experience during those tough times and how the government then dealt with it shape much of her opinion on economic policy today. I don’t always agree with what she says, but I’ve learned to listen. She has the benefit of experience and hindsight, while I have only amateur rhetoric and hypothetical situations to back up my views. Many of our parents were young during the Vietnam War, when the threat of the draft was real. Some of us hope to stop the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; well, that generation did stop a war much more effectively than our weak peace efforts. Rather than calling them old and irrelevant, we would do well to learn from them. I still don’t think my dad is right about everything. But instead of turning my ears off and closing my mind to his views, I’ve learned to listen — even if it is only when he asks me to pass the gravy at Thanksgiving dinner. — Anna Swenson is a sophomore majoring in English.

Agency testing detects corrosive effects of Chinese drywall McClatchy Tribune

Timothy GalazArizona Daily Wildcat

Richard Romero, associate director of Campus Recreation, shows off some of the features of the new Student Recreation Center Expansion that have gained the structure environmental acclaim, like the windows that help maintain the temperature of the building.


UA building project to be sustainability leader

continued from page 1

building construction, the sustainable design was also viewed as a way to save money, Stevens said. “One of the main goals behind this project was shepherding the use of the students’ money, so over a long term, the more sustainable approach you take, the less cost over time the building takes in terms of operation and maintenance,” he said. Though the building is on-track to reach platinum certification, the original goal was only to reach silver, Stevens said. “When we were meeting with all the building stakeholders in the building committee, one of the goals that came out of it was that we wanted the building to express some of these sustainable initiatives, and so from the earliest concept design, we were integrating a lot of the sustainable design strategies into the way

the building looked and the way the building was organized,” he said. “Because of that, we realized about halfway through the process that silver was not a very aggressive target at all and we essentially could have achieved silver without trying.” The Student Recreation Expansion would be the first UA building to obtain gold or platinum certification and the first university building in the nation to obtain platinum. It would be the fifth building in Tucson to obtain platinum certification, Moore said. Student input played a major role in the building design moving toward platinum certification, Stevens said. “For a building that was essentially funded with students’ money, it made a lot of sense to articulate those types of ideals in the building and achieve as high a rating as we possibly can,” Stevens said.

Gov. signs bills to reduce Arizona’s $2 billion deficit McClatchy Tribune PHOENIX — Gov. Jan Brewer on Monday signed legislation to eliminate about a quarter of the state’s nearly $2 billion midyear budget deficit, as she and lawmakers acknowledged that the action was only a start. “These cuts that we’re making today barely make a dent in the problem,” said Rep. John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills. The three budget bills Brewer signed include $292.6 million of spending cuts, plus funding shifts and other changes to bring the total savings to $452 million. The spending cuts target funding for K-12 schools’ equipment purchases and Department of Economic Security social services. The Legislature adjourned its special session after passing the bills. Votes Monday on the main spending bill were along party lines in the House and nearly so in the Senate, where one Republican joined Democrats in voting against it. Numerous Democrats joined Republicans in voting for another bill that diverts money and authorizes state agencies to increase fees so they can keep operating.

Democrats said they acknowledged spending cuts are needed but said they wouldn’t support them without more comprehensive action. “We’re not considering what has to be one-half of the equation, and that’s revenue,” said Rep. Steve Farley, D-Tucson. Republicans scoffed, saying Democrats hadn’t shown a willingness to support any cuts. “It takes courage to cut back on your government and it’s much easier to just vote no,” said Sen. Sylvia Allen, R-Snowflake. Senate approval of the spending cuts came after hours of delay as Republicans negotiated possible changes with Democrats. However, Republicans dropped that effort when a GOP senator who skipped Thursday’s floor session — when votes were originally scheduled — had a change of heart and voted with his GOP colleagues Monday. That gave Republicans the bare majority of 16 needed for passage by the 30-member Senate. One Republican, Sen. Ron Gould of Lake Havasu City, voted against the cuts but said that was only because he couldn’t support the companion bill to authorize several

agencies to increase fees. “I have to stand on principle,” Gould said. “I have absolutely no problem with cutting budgets.” Brewer said the bills she signed Monday “have begun the beginning of addressing the $2 billion deficit that Arizona faces.” Brewer vetoed larger versions of the spending cuts on Sept. 4 when she rejected parts of a budget approved by the Legislature during a previous special session. She had called the earlier versions unacceptable but said Monday she was willing to sign the newer, smaller versions into law because she hadn’t yet succeeded in winning legislative approval to ask voters for temporary sales tax increase. “Reality sets in,” Brewer said. She said the state still needs additional revenue, however. Brewer and legislative leaders said they will meet next Monday to set a course for more budget-balancing action, including a possible December special session. Actions under consideration include more spending cuts, borrowing against future lottery revenues and moving forward with a temporary sales tax increase.

MIAMI — What thousands of homeowners nationwide have believed about Chinese drywall was validated Monday, when the Consumer Product Safety Commission said there is a link between the imported material and problems with corrosion in homes that have it. The conclusion followed testing at 51 homes in Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Virginia that found “a strong association between the problem drywall, the hydrogen sulfide levels in homes with that drywall and corrosion in those homes.” Homeowners have been complaining for about a year to federal and state government agencies that their homes smell of sulfur or rotten eggs, that the copper in their air conditioning units and electrical wires in their homes is corroding and that other metals are turning black. They have also reported problems breathing, headaches and nosebleeds. But until this week, no agency had officially linked corrosion problems with drywall. The commission is still investigating the link between

wallboard and health concerns. Monday’s report said chemicals found in the homes tested were at levels lower than what might be expected to cause irritation, but the combination of those compounds with other substances could lead to the symptoms families are experiencing. The agency cautioned that not all Chinese drywall is a source of problems. “Not all drywall is alike,” said Jack McCarthy, president of Environmental Health & Engineering, which conducted the testing for the Consumer Product Safety Commission. “Not all Chinese drywall is alike. It depends on what it’s made of — not the country it came from.” Commission spokesman Scott Wolfson said the agency is “not limited in the scope of our investigation to just Chinese drywall.” To date, the commission has received 2,091 complaint reports from residents in 32 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico who believe their health symptoms or the corrosion of certain metal components are related to Chinese drywall. The majority of those — more than 1,400 — are from Florida residents. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords listens to Neal Armstrong, a professor and researcher in the chemistry and biochemistry department, speak about his research in hybrid solar-electric materials that he received $13 million in federal stimulus funding for. Giffords spoke at the BIO5 Institute on Monday about the $82 million of stimulus funding secured by the UA for 125 different research projects. Lisa Beth Earle/ Arizona Daily Wildcat


UA research awarded millions

continued from page 1 The first and most important of these factors is the ability of proposals to create and retain jobs. As of Sept. 30 of this year, stimulusfunded research at the UA provides for at least 157 jobs, said Tolbert. Also, the funding provided by the federal government is designed to bolster the workforce America needs to maintain its prominence in the fields of science and engineering. Tolbert said international competitors such as China and India are threatening to eclipse the United States as the world leaders in scientific research. “Stimulus funds are preventing — for at least the next two years — the United States research machine from stalling out,”said Tolbert. The largest stimulus-funded program at the UA is an Energy Frontier Research Center under the directorship of chemistry professor Neal Armstrong. Armstrong was awarded $13 million from the U.S. Department of Energy for his proposal on developing cheap and reliable photovoltaic cells that could potentially help lay the groundwork for fundamental

advances in solar technology. “Current solar photovoltaic technology can produce a watt of electricity for between 30 cents to a dollar,” said Armostrong. “Our goal is to develop a technology that gets close to the cost of coal which is four cents per watt.” Marcia Rieke of the Steward Observatory was awarded the second largest research grant. Rieke was awarded $10 million for continuing work on the Next Generation Space Telescope that will continue to address the formation of galaxies and stars and to monitor planetary systems from inception to maturity. In addition to providing some of the leading research in their respective fields, stimulus-funded research proposals are providing students with the chance to participate in research that would otherwise be unavailable to them. “American Recovery and Reinvestment funds are helping us maintain the quality of our research enterprise which produces new knowledge and provides students with key roles to play in cutting-edge innovation and discovery,” said Tolbert.

Where there’s smoke … police will get warrants

University of Arizona Police Department officers responded to the Pueblo de la Cienega Residence Hall on Nov. 15 at 2:18 a.m. in reference to a report of the odor of marijuana coming from one of the rooms. Upon arrival, officers met with a resident assistant who led them to a room on the first floor. The RA stated that while doing hourly rounds, the smell of burnt marijuana was detected. Officers knocked on the door and a man answered. He identified himself with an Illinois driver’s license and told police he was a resident of the room. Officers asked the man if they could enter the room and he refused. He then asked officers why they were there and they responded that they could smell the strong odor of marijuana and it seemed to be coming from his room. The man stated that his girlfriend was inside and when she had arrived earlier she mentioned the smell as well, but he claimed to not know why the room smelled of marijuana. Officers asked the man if he had any marijuana in the room and he stated that he did not. Officers asked the man if he would consent to a search of the room and he stated that he would not. Officers asked the man and his girlfriend to exit the room and sit outside. Officers requested a telephonic search warrant, which was granted at 4:10 a.m. A search of the room revealed a bag of marijuana and several items of paraphernalia, including rolling papers, lighters and a “blunt” cigar. The man was cited on charges of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on the scene and the incident has been referred to the Dean of Students Office.

Who let the dog out?

UAPD officers were near Old Main on Nov. 16 around 7 a.m. when they were contacted by a university employee in regards to found property. The employee then handed officers an unleashed dog that was found on the UA Mall. The animal had no collar or other identification. Police advised the Pima Animal Care Center, who arrived at 7:38 a.m., to retrieve the dog. Animal care was unable to identify the dog or locate any owner information. The animal will remain in custody of the Pima Animal Care Center until it can be claimed.

Vandals break windows at Biochemistry Greenhouse

UAPD officers were dispatched to the university’s Biochemistry Greenhouses on Nov. 16 at 1 p.m. in reference to a report of intentional vandalism. Upon arrival, officers met with an employee of the greenhouse who told them that an unknown person or persons broke two window panes at the facility. The panes were approximately 24 inches by 20 inches each and they both had one small hole in them, likely caused by a rock or other projectile being thrown through them. Police have no suspects or witnesses at this time.

Coronado residents ignore police, get in trouble anyway

UAPD officers were dispatched to the Coronado Residence Hall on Nov. 17 at 12:15 a.m. in reference to a report of the strong odor of marijuana coming from one of the rooms. Upon arrival, officers met with a resident assistant who escorted them to a room on the third floor. Officers checked around the door frame and were able to positively identify that the smell was coming from that room. They heard several voices inside of the room and knocked on the door. The voices stopped but nobody answered the door. The police continued knocking for several minutes but the occupants of the room refused to open the door and make contact with police. The RA gave police the names and dates of birth of the residents of the room. Based on the smell of marijuana and their refusal to answer the door, the residents were referred to the Dean of Students Office for Code of Conduct violations.

Geriatric Romeo unable to woo younger woman

UAPD officers met with a female university student at the UAPD main station on Nov. 17 at 10:22 a.m. in reference to suspicious activity. According to the woman, she had been attending a Law School Admission Test preparation course on Nov. 16 at the Student Union Memorial Center when another class member made her feel uncomfortable. She described the other class member as “a creeper” and told officers that he was in his late 60s or early 70s. She stated that he followed her out of class and all the way to her car, which was parked at the Second Street Parking Garage. She stated that once at her car, the man produced a Victoria’s Secret box, which he gave to her as a gift. Inside of the box was a $25 gift card. She stated that she did not know why the man would give her a gift and admitted that it made her feel very uncomfortable. She stated that she did not feel threatened but wanted to report the incident so that it would be documented. She told police that rather than have any further contact with the man, she would give the gift to her instructor and the instructor could return the gift.

’Cats suffer awkward defeat

Squad moves on after UO loss

Hoops claws back only to falter down the stretch

Colin Darland/Arizona Daily Wildcat


Derrick Williams

COMMENTARY By Lance Madden


sports writer

ean Miller bathed in the golden sun with a green tropical paradise scene in the background. He looked comfortable and happy to be in Hawaii for the EA Sports Maui

Invitational quarterfinal. Then, speaking seriously even though he wore a magenta lei around his neck, the UA men’s basketball head coach told the ESPN2 telecast that his team’s trip to Lahaina, Maui, has been awkward — his word — because everything is so new to this baby-faced team. True, coming into the third game of its young season, the UA men’s basketball team hadn’t experienced a road game before. Or a 13-0 deficit to start a game. Or extreme foul trouble.

Or a loss. And first losses are always awkward. Remember Arizona’s first loss last season — against UAB — when Jamelle Horne’s last-second diving foul at midcourt gave the Blazers a chance to win with a free throw? Remember the season before, when the Wildcats lost 75-72 to Virgina after Cavaliers guard Sean Singletary supposedly called Arizona“soft”? To kick off the 2006-07 season — Lute Olson’s last year — Arizona began with a three-point loss at Virginia but then went on a 12-game winning streak.

First losses are what you make of them. They can be motivational or detrimental. But whatever happens to Arizona (2-1) after its 65-61 loss to Wisconsin (3-0) Monday night, the Wildcats were able to show a nitty-gritty side HOOPS, page 12

Arizona football’s loss to Oregon was perhaps the most difficult loss to swallow of the season considering that a UA win would give it a good chance to reach the Rose Bowl for the first time ever. Despite the defeat there is still plenty to play for. “We can finish anywhere from second to sixth (in the Pacific 10 Conference),” head coach Mike Stoops said during his weekly press conference on Monday. “There’s a significant difference (between finishing 4-5 or 6-3 in the Pac-10), we’re always trying to improve our position and get better as a program.” While the Rose Bowl dreams are dashed, there’s still hope for the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl — generally reserved for the team that finishes second in the Pac-10 — if the Wildcats can win out and Oregon defeats Oregon State. Other bowl scenarios include the Brut Sun Bowl, the Emerald Bowl , the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl and the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl. “We certainly feel like we’re a much better program than we were a year ago. Sometimes the record reflects that and sometimes, maybe not so much,” Stoops said. “I think our players have worked extremely hard all season. I don’t look for that to change and I look for them to put the same effort and attitude into these last two weeks. “We’re close,” Stoops added. “We just need to keep getting better, that’s all we can do.” NOTES, page 12

Ige earns Regrouped W-hoops drops Ole Miss individual honors in NCAAs By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

By Nathan Comerford ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT As the men’s NCAA Cross Country National Championships began wrapping up in Terre Haute, Ind., yesterday, the sun started shining from behind the clouds. It served as a fitting finish for a newly crowned All-American Mohamud Ige who finished on a high note with 38th place in the field, earning him All-American honors. “I’m just really proud of him,” said head cross-country coach James Li.“He is starting to realize his potential. I think he can get better but nonetheless, we’re very, very happy at what he’s achieved at the very end of the season.” “And if you think of it in relative terms, he’s done better every race,” Li added.“We definitely knew he could do it, but when you come and actually get it done, that’s special.” Coming off a 20th place finish at the Pacific 10 Conference Meet and an ninth place finish at the West Region Meet, Ige was primed for a successful end to his season after struggling through injury for the majority of the year. With a time of 30:19.4 for his 10,000-meter race, the junior finished a little under three minutes off of first place and beat out 174 other runners. On the No. 28 women’s side though, it was a race of surprises. The crowd at hand saw the overwhelming favorite and 2008 Olympian, Jenny Barringer from Colorado, collapse halfway through the race. While nothing to that extent happened to the Wildcats, XC, page 10

In a matinee matchup with the Lady Rebels of Mississippi, the Arizona women’s basketball team held on to a second-half lead to come out victorious (65-59) yesterday at McKale Center. The win was a rebound step in the right direction for the Wildcats after their disappointing performance at San Diego State University over the weekend. “One positive thing I will take from the game other than the win is that we did a much better job taking care of the basketball,” said head coach Niya Butts. “Fourteen turnovers I think is a marked improvement from 27, so I’ll take that.” Arizona limited their turnovers and shot an improved 41.5 percent from the field in the game. The Wildcats (3-1) also registered four starters in double figures, including sophomore transfer Brooke Jackson who had 20 points in the game and was in double figures by halftime. All-American Ify Ibekwe added another double-double to her season total with 16 rebounds and 10 points. “I think it was good because everyone wanted to turn around and win … the next game we played, so everyone’s mentality was a little bit better,” said freshman guard Davellyn Whyte, who finished with 11 points. The Wildcats were able to keep pace with Ole Miss (3-1) by limiting the Lady Rebels offense in the second half. After Ole Miss took a 29-28 lead in the final seconds of the first half, Arizona took halftime to regroup. The team came out of the break and lit up the scoreboard. In the first six minutes, Arizona went on a 11-0 run to not only make up its one point deficit but to take the 42-31 lead. Soana Lucet finished a highlight play that was sparked by an Ibekwe rebound. After Ibekwe caught the ball, she threw it down court to an open Jackson who dished in to Lucet for the score. Arizona saw much of its offense off the quick pass to the posts and scored 18 points in the paint.

The lead would go up to as much as 14 points before the Lady Rebels would respond. With about 11 minutes left in the half, Ole Miss hit two back-to-back 3-pointers to cut the lead down from 11 to five. The next three minutes would prove a scoring drought on both sides as the teams exchanged missed shots and turnovers. Arizona’s lead would slowly diminish until Ole Miss cut it down to a one-point deficit. Although the Wildcats lead for all but 30 seconds of the entire second half, the Lady Rebels made it interesting, especially in the last two minutes of the game. Jackson said the reason Arizona pulled out the win wasn’t due to their play but to the attitude of the team. “I think we had better poise,” said Jackson. “We just finally started to relax more.” Arizona also improved in the rebounding department. They say a vast improvement over their last game, this time outrebounding their opponent 45-41. The advantage helped the Wildcats close out the game. “If Ify hadn’t got several big rebounds then the outcome would have been different,”Butts said.“But we had people making big plays, you know, getting rebounds.” Arizona is back in action on Friday when they travel to the University of San Diego to take on the Toreros.

Monday was fieldtrip day at McKale Center. The 3,085 attendees were mostly made up of schoolage children. Both the players and the coaches felt the noise of the crowd, who at one point rocked the stands to the tune of Queen’s “We Will Rock You”. “They don’t care what they’re screaming for, or who they’re screaming at,” Butts said.“They just screamed and I loved it.” Because the game was during midday, many athletes and McKale Center employees stopped by to take in the game action, including UA quarterback Nick Foles and running back Nic Grigsby.

Pac-10 Power Rankings Oregon is now in sole possession of first place in the Pacific 10 Conference and it is well deserved. The Pac-10 is now sending seven teams to bowl games and students at the UA heard the ESPN fellas firsthand when they said that the Pac-10 is the best conference in all of college football.


Oregon (9-2, 7-1 Pac-10) Last Week: No. 2

Of all the questions that were answered over the weekend, nothing is more prevalent than just how special Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli is after beating Arizona by himself. He should lead the Ducks past Oregon State to get to the Rose Bowl and then easily beat Ohio State in Pasadena, Calif. I’m not so sure there’s a team in the country that can stop the Ducks on offense.


USC (7-3, 4-3 Pac-10) Last Week: No. 6

A week off was probably a great thing for the suddenly-vulnerable Trojans. They should beat UCLA this week and then face Arizona for a game that could decide second place in the Pac-10.


OSU (8-3, 6-2 Pac-10) Last Week: No. 3

The Beavers might be the quietest team in the nation, winning four straight games while the media talks about every other team in the Pac-10. Yet here is Oregon State, one game left and one win away from making the Rose Bowl. An extra week of rest should give the Rodgers brothers some fresh legs — something OSU will need if it hopes to beat Oregon.


UCLA (6-5, 3-5 Pac-10) Last Week: No. 7

Congrats to the Bruins for getting it together and becoming bowl eligible. They will probably drop their final game against USC, but reaching the postseason after such a putrid start in the Pac-10 is impressive.


Stanford (7-4, 6-3 Pac-10) Last Week: No. 1

Perhaps the hubris got to the head of the Cardinal, but I’m not so sure Stanford should have dropped out of the polls. Considering how easily Stanford beat Oregon and USC, there’s no reason for the Cardinal to be upset by dropping its final conference game. They’ll have a great chance to right the ship against a reeling Notre Dame at home.


ASU (4-7, 2-6 Pac-10) Last Week: No. 8

Any chance of a late season run to make a bowl is now gone thanks to the Sun Devils’ minimal offensive firepower. Conventional wisdom tells us that ASU better watch its back in a rivalry game with an extremely angry Arizona team, but you can toss records out the window when these two schools match up, especially when ASU is at home.


California (8-3, 5-3 Pac-10) Last Week: No. 5

Good for the Bears, ripping off consecutive upset wins against ranked opponents Arizona and Stanford in the face of losing their best player. Cal has a week to rest and then should beat Washington in December. Remember when we all thought the Bears were dead in the water two months ago? We were wrong.


Washington (3-7, 2-5 Pac-10) Last Week: No. 9

The Huskies will beat Washington State and could possibly upset Cal the next week, but even if they somehow lose both games this season, they should be considered a success for rookie head coach Steve Sarkisian.


Arizona (6-4, 4-3 Pac-10) Last Week: No. 4

The Wildcats have no reason to be upset after a truly inspired and admirable effort against Oregon. Unfortunately one team had to lose, and Arizona lost not only the game but also its Rose Bowl hopes. But the players made UA football relevant again, and I don’t think it’s premature to say that they will be a top-15 team in the nation next year. They should get back on track this weekend at ASU.


WSU (1-10, 0-8 Pac-10 Last Week: No. 10

Athlete of the Week: Brooke Jackson By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Editors Note: Sophomore Brooke Jackson scored 20 points and had four assists with five steals in Arizona’s 65-59 win over the Ole Miss Lady Rebels yesterday. The guard even had a tip assist that looked more like it belonged on the volleyball court than in a basketball game. The Arizona Daily Wildcat caught up with Jackson after the game to discuss her other athletic interests, her likeness to Steve Nash and her family’s Thanksgiving traditions. Daily Wildcat: If you could be any animal, what would you be and why? Brooke Jackson: I would probably say a cheetah because of how fast and quick they are. Their fur is very soft. DW: What’s your favorite place to eat on University Boulevard? BJ: I don’t really know. I don’t really go on University but I like to go P.F. Chang’s with my family. It’s always a good place.

DW: Who has the best nickname on the team? BJ: Bricks. DW: And who is that? BJ: Amanda (Pierson).

DW: And why is she called that? BJ: Because we were walking (in) the Hall of Champions and she was carrying food and then all of (a) sudden, a brick just broke when she stepped on it (Laughs). DW: Some of the other media and I were saying that you channeled your inner Steve Nash today with the no-look passes and assists. What do you think about that nickname? BJ: You know, I look up to Steve Nash. He’s a really good point guard and it’s a compliment. I was trying. DW: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food? BJ: I would say the stuffing. My mom’s stuffing. I don’t know what she does but it’s really good though.

DW: Does your family have any Thanksgiving traditions? BJ: Usually we just go to the movies. We used to. If not we’ll just play games. They usually wake up and go running. They do the Turkey Trot (laughs). I don’t because it’s my day off (laughs). DW: Do you watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? BJ: Yeah, my family does. DW: Do you have a favorite balloon? BJ: I like the Santa Claus. DW: If you could play any other sport other than basketball what would you play? BJ: Volleyball. DW: With your set pass today, do you think you could take over for (Arizona volleyball setter) Paige Weber? BJ: Oh, I’m definitely not a setter (laughs). I would just play defense (laughs).

Young women’s team struggles, gains experience

the surprises trickled down and Arizona finished 30th out of 31 teams. “It was not a very good performance,� Li said.“But I was trying to tell the girls to keep their heads up and while we’re not happy about our performance here, I’m still very proud of them for making it here and for what they’ve achieved.�

For the first time this season, junior runner Maggie Callahan was not the first runner across the line for Arizona. That spot was filled by standout freshman Jennifer Bergman, who finished 138th overall with a time of 21:34.5 for a 6,000-meter race. “I was pretty excited to be the first

one to finish,� Bergman said. “I started out pretty slow, but I definitely picked it up near the end. It was definitely a lot different than what I was used to with so many fast runners.� The difference between Bergman and Callahan, the second Arizona runner to cross, was a mere three seconds. Callahan

finished 147th. The next woman across the line was freshman Cami Jackson, in 156th with a time of 21:42.6. Freshman Liz Apgar came through next at 197th in 22:03.4 and sophomore Hanna Henson rounded out the team’s top five finishers two seconds later with a finish in 201st place. In all, there were

254 women in the race. “I think we’re going to learn a lot from it,� Callahan said. “We can’t just be happy that we’re here. We have to make an impact next year.� “It just kind of sucks to end on this note,� she added, “but for the whole season, we have a great sense of accomplishment.�

Williams shines in loss

continued from page 7

Alan Walsh/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Wide receiver Juron Criner runs past an Oregon defender in the Wildcats’ 44-41 loss against Oregon on Saturday. The sophomore had a breakout game for Arizona, recording 93 yards on five catches, including one for 71 yards.

NOTES continued from page 7

Stoops addresses cheerleader incident

Grigsby out for ASU game, Antolin questionable

Word of the incident with the Oregon cheerleader reached the Arizona coaches. Katelynn Johnson was knocked unconscious and taken to the hospital after being hit in the head by a water bottle that was thrown from the stands. “I checked on the young lady that was struck with the bottle and talked to (Oregon Athletic Director and former head coach Mike) Belotti and all the information was good,� Stoops said. “It was disturbing, when you think about it that could seriously hurt somebody — kill somebody actually. That’s concerning and

it’s unfortunate, and it’s something that we’ll continue to look at security-wise.�

Criner stepping up

Stoops was relentless with his praise of Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, but the Duck signal caller wasn’t the only player on the field to give a remarkable individual performance. Arizona wide receiver Juron Criner had a career day, hauling in five balls for 93 yards and three scores. “Juron’s played well. He’s a big, physical guy that can run and he needs to be a playmaker for us,� Stoops said of the sophomore.

“He’s capable of that and I think you’re starting to see his evolution and his maturity as a player. He’s still a young player, and I think he’ll continue to improve.� Criner’s 71-yard catch-and-run was the biggest play of his promising career and would have been the defining play of the game had Arizona held on for the win. “I don’t think there’s any question (that it was the play of his career),� Stoops said. “A guy that big, to be able to split those guys, it showed his strength and speed to finish.�

Injury report

Running back Nic Grigsby was in

the starting lineup against Oregon but was again hampered by a shoulder injury. Stoops said that it’s unlikely the junior will play against Arizona State this weekend. Keola Antolin, his backup, provided a burst against the Ducks but then had to leave the game due to lingering effects from a stinger he suffered against California the week before. Stoops said Antolin’s availability will be determined later in the week. Sophomore wide receiver David Douglas suffered a deep thigh bruise in the Oregon game and was seen on the sideline on crutches during the second half.

of them that will be beneficial as this team grows, no matter how awkward the game was. Three Wildcats fouled out and two others had four fouls apiece, but that wasn’t as big a factor as it would have been last year because Arizona has more role players this year. They only made 16-of-44 field goals (36.4 percent), but they made up for it, mostly, at the charity stripe, making 26of-37 free throws during a game with more whistles than a child’s train set. Senior point guard Nic Wise had nearly three times as many misses as makes (3-for-11), but freshman Derrick Williams stepped up and scored a game-high 25 points. “More so than any other player, I think you’ll see great improvement (in Williams) as his freshman year continues to unfold,� Miller told ESPN. Despite the sloppy play as a team, the Wildcats displayed balance and proved they are able to claw their way back into relevance. They were able to make a comeback and even take a lead in the second quarter after starting the game 0-for-7 from the field over a nine-minute span. Arizona’s first loss was a learning experience, especially for the four freshmen who played in the game. They’ll learn to win ugly games like these. It’s just going to take time. The biggest lesson, however, was that awkward isn’t necessarily the end of the world. — Lance Madden is a journalism senior. He can be reached at
