Turnout of Latinos still lags behind other voters STEPHANIE CASANOVA Arizona Daily Wildcat

The number of Latino voters is falling, and some say anti-immigration legislation is mostly to blame. Despite an increase in eligible voters within the country’s largest minority group, the voting turnout rate for Latinos continues to fall behind that of whites and blacks, according to a recent Pew Research Center study. The study shows that 50 percent of Latinos eligible to vote did in fact vote in the 2008 election compared to 65 percent of black voters and 66 percent of white voters. From 2008 to 2010, the amount of registered Latino voters also decreased by about 600,000, according to the study. Anna Ochoa O’Leary, a Mexican American studies professor, said that a person’s income, age and education influences voting behavior and should be taken into account when deliberating the gap between eligible Latino voters and Latino voter turnout. Today’s hostile, anti-immigration discourse in the country has given people a negative perception about the Latino population, O’Leary said, adding that people think Latinos vote in lower numbers because they are Latino, instead of thinking past that and considering that Latinos in the U.S. are a younger population, a poorer population and one in which a majority of students attend low-quality, under-funded schools. “There’s this tendency to look at primarily Latino populations or Mexican populations as not quite as American as other populations,” O’Leary said.



Fire damages to cost up to $60K BRITTNY MEJIA Arizona Daily Wildcat

The cost of damage following Saturday’s fire in McKale Center has been estimated at tens of thousands of dollars, and is expected to increase. Smoke, fire and water damage in the center has been estimated at about $60,000 following a fire within the building, said Cpt. Barrett Baker, a public information officer with the Tucson Fire Department. Investigators determined the fire Saturday night was the result of a spontaneous combustion of rags, Baker said. The rags had

been washed and dried a few hours prior to the fire, placed in a plastic bag and set down in a particular room in the equipment area. The fire set off a sprinkler in the room. The total amount of damage to equipment and uniforms has not yet been determined, said UA athletic director Greg Byrne at the weekly football press conference on Monday. Currently, the equipment staff has been working to ensure the teams are outfitted for practice and for games, he added. Byrne said the results of the fire extended to locker room areas nearby the equipment room, including rooms occupied by the swimming and baseball programs, leaving

“an effect across the board for a number of sports.” Despite damage from the fire, the volleyball match against USC was still held in McKale Center Sunday night. Byrne also said staff is speaking with equipment providers regarding what can be washed, cleaned and reused and what should be replaced. Now that the investigation is over, Baker said the athletic department has already begun their restoration process. TFD was alerted to the scene Saturday night after smoke was seen coming from the building. About 40 firefighters responded to put out the fire.

The results of a UA study may be the stepping stone to furthering research regarding the interworkings of human social interaction. Researchers have discovered new cells in the amygdala, a part of the brain that plays a key role in processing emotions and social behavior, and which is associated with allowing one to feel a special connection with another when eye contact is made. The study was overseen by Katalin Gothard, a physiology professor at the UA . This type of cell was discovered in a Rhesus monkey when Gothard and a team of researchers placed electrodes in the amygdala and recorded the neuron activity as the monkeys watched videos of other monkeys making various expressions, said Clayton Mosher, a fourth-year graduate student in the neuroscience department. During the study, the monkey would watch 22 videos a day, viewing them multiple times. Each video was 10 seconds long and consisted of one individual monkey displaying three different facial expressions, including a neutral neutral expression, a threat and a lip smack, which is considered a friendly gesture, said Prisca Zimmerman, a senior research specialist. Some of the movies showed the monkey looking away from the camera, while the remaining videos depicted the monkey looking toward the camera, Zimmerman added. Researchers could observe whether eye contact was made by red dots that were transmitted onto the video screen and corresponded to where the monkey was looking via equipment that was connected to the monkey as it watched. “We see that when monkeys watch the


Byrne: Scott suffered concussion against UCLA UA quarterback might not play on Saturday against Colorado, Hank Hobson in good spirits after ‘nerve issue’ ZACK ROSENBLATT Arizona Daily Wildcat


QUARTERBACK MATT SCOTT is helped off the field by Arizona’s medical staff in the third quarter of Saturday’s 66-10 loss to UCLA at the Rose Bowl. Scott suffered a concussion when his head struck the knee of a Bruins defender.

Arizona quarterback Matt Scott suffered a concussion in Saturday’s 66-10 loss to UCLA, according to athletic director Greg Byrne. “Matt did suffer a concussion during the game,” Byrne said. “Many of you saw him receive a blow to the head. Medical staff is taking great care of him. “The final decision of whether he will play will be made by our medical staff.” Scott suffered the concussion with 6:17 remaining in the third quarter while attempting a throw from Arizona’s end zone. On his way to the ground, Scott’s head struck the tackler’s knee. He was attended to by Arizona’s medical staff and escorted into the locker room. Head coach Rich Rodriguez holds a weekly Monday press conference, and typically he speaks to the media, and then a few players come in after to answer questions. On Monday, Byrne felt it was necessary to

address both Scott and linebacker Hank Hobson’s injuries suffered against UCLA. Last week, concerns were raised about the decision to keep Scott in the game after it looked like he suffered a concussion against USC and proceeded to throw up on the field, and Byrne addressed that concern. “Our medical staff has conducted daily evaluations and continuously monitored Matt,” Byrne said. “Last Friday we did final evaluations and did an exertion impact test. Matt was medically and clinically approved to play.” Hobson was taken off the field on a stretcher and taken to a hospital after clutching his shoulder and falling to the ground during the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game. He spent the night in Los Angeles before returning to Tucson on Sunday. Rodriguez described Hobson’s injury as a “nerve issue”. Byrne said that Hobson was walking around and “in good spirits” on Monday. Scott and Hobson’s status for Saturday’s game will be announced on the weekly injury report, released on Thursday. If Scott is unable to go, Rodriguez said B.J. Denker would start and receiver Richard Morrison will be his backup.






Laws such as Proposition 200, which requires Arizonans to present proof of citizenship at the polls, cause Latinos to feel unwelcome, O’Leary added. Mistakes like the one Maricopa County made this year by printing the wrong election date on some of the Spanish ballots, also produced anxiety for Latinos, and not just those who are here illegally, she said. “It’s not just an imagined perception that somehow, as Latinos, we don’t quite belong, we are not quite as welcome,â€? O’Leary said. “Every time you have any type of legislation proposed that is anti-immigrant, Latinos begin to feel discriminated [against].â€? O’Leary also said some Latinos might feel divided between certain views each politician holds. Many Latinos are pro-life Catholics and find Romney’s beliefs appealing, some are disappointed at Obama’s administration because of the increase of deportations and some find Obama’s push to pass the DREAM Act appealing, she said. “When there’s a lot of pressure on Latino families ‌ one response might be ‘I really don’t care anymore, I just want to live my life and not be concerned with making choices,’â€? O’Leary said. Omar Vasquez, a UA law student and Student Bar Association representative in the executive board of the

Latino Law Student Association, disagreed with O’Leary and said he is skeptical of the idea that most Catholics are pro-life or that the pro-life issue alone is important enough to determine their vote. Issues such as the DREAM Act, immigration reform as well as the economy are more important issues in this election, Vasquez added. Ignorance and apathy of these issues as well as lack of enthusiasm, Vasquez said, is what he believes keeps people from voting. “They perceive that there will be no impact regardless of which party wins,� he said. “Their day-to-day life will be not something to be changed.� Javier Lagarda, a business senior, agreed that apathy is keeping people out of polling booths and said that Latinos who are eligible to vote complain about the government yet don’t do anything to change it. “I really don’t find a reason,� Lagarda said. “I believe in that idea that a majority of the younger population is lazy and the older population is just satisfied.� While the gap between eligible voters and voter turnout has historically been larger for the Latino population, Lagarda, Vasquez and O’Leary said they believe the gap will close over time. With the Latino population continues to grow, Vasquez said he expects an increase in Latino voter turnout in the 2012 election and in future elections. “Something everybody can do is encourage everybody around us to vote and make sure they’re voting,� Vasquez said.

He added that when eye contact is made, it either makes the monkey watching the screen nervous, causing him to look away, or provokes a reaction indicative of a social response. Regardless of the expressions, Mosher said the monkeys spent most of the time looking at the eyes, but when they made eye contact, they made an expression. This is what has sparked an interest in the study. “We are interested in knowing how the brain makes social behavior happen,� Mosher said. Mosher said that the next step in the research will be to use two monkeys to make eye contact in person.

UA a model for pro-Israel efforts YARA ASKAR

Arizona Daily Wildcat

Research led by a UA alumnus is addressing perceptions of Israel in universities across the country, and he’s calling the UA a model institution for pro-Israel student initiatives. Samuel Edelman, an emeritus professor of Jewish and Holocaust Studies at California State University, Chico, presented his research during an event hosted by the UA Center for Judaic Studies. Edelman’s project interviewed faculty and staff from 34 campuses across the U.S. about their perception of Israel on campus. Some of the feedback was positive while some was negative, but Edelman said implications that groups are anti-Israel will always remain. Most of the pro-Israel activity on college campuses today is student-centered, Edelman said, but added that Jews still face some issues on campus where they feel that they are being harassed, which leads them to being afraid to express their religion, he said.

While Edelman listed several universities in California that are anti-Israel, he said that the UA is a model program for institutes that support the country and its culture. “What the staff has done with Jewish Studies at the University of Arizona is a remarkable thing,” Edelman said. “I’m not just a supporter of this, but it is one of the modeled programs in the United States.” In the conducted research, 90 percent of those interviewed were professors and 10 percent were deans and department chairs. In his survey, Edelman found that 25 percent perceived a positive atmosphere on campus, 15 percent felt a negative impact and 60 percent were apathetic. Yet within the 60 percent, some felt it was possible for change to happen through a combination of effort, education and activity, Edelman said. “While there is some negative to the 60 percent of the apathetic campus, there is some possible positive,” Edelman said. “It’s not an area where we can throw our hands up

and give up.” When a Jewish community was perceived to have a strong presence on campus, and was generally in good standing with the university, faculty felt protected and supportive, according to Edelman. “Strong Israel programs and Jewish studies programs can become world models and protectors for pro-Israel student groups and Jewish student groups,” he said. Some of the recommendations from the faculty surveyed were to provide more courses on Israel, more joint research between Israel and Americans and better connections with like-minded professors. Edward Wright, director and professor of Judaic Studies at the UA, said he was pleased with the findings. “I am very proud of that as a faculty member and as an administrator,” Wright said. “I think we have the right spirit about us; we have the intention of making this a safe and warm academic environment and welcoming place as well.”

Election Day: Time for voters to have their say MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

WASHINGTON — After billions of dollars, hours of debates and frantic last-minute pitches from the candidates, it’s up to the voters Tuesday to decide whether to give President Barack Obama a second term or change course with Republican Mitt Romney. Also at stake is control of Congress. Thirty-three Senate seats and all 435 House of Representatives seats are up this year, and while the House is expected to remain in Republican hands, Senate control hinges on a host of tight races. Turnout will be one key to handicapping who’s winning the White House and congressional battles, heading a long list of unknowns. Will the relentlessly negative campaign help or hurt? Did superstorm Sandy benefit the president? Did early voting give him a big advantage? Once the polls close starting at 6 p.m. EST in Indiana and Kentucky, a number of early clues will signal whether Obama or Romney will get the 270 electoral votes needed to win. Polls on Monday continued to show the race a virtual tie nationally and in most of the 11 battleground states. The first hints of how the night might go will come in four early

poll-closing states: Virginia, North Carolina, New Hampshire and Indiana. Obama won all four in 2008. Romney needs all four if he’s to become the sixth person in 100 years to defeat a sitting president. Should he falter in even one, or the results become too close to call, this race won’t be over quickly. Obama, on the other hand, can score an important win early by taking Florida. Losing its 29 electoral votes would be a huge blow to Romney, who has pushed hard for the state’s votes and began his last full campaign day Monday in Orlando. “Tomorrow we begin a better tomorrow,” Romney told about 1,000 supporters, stressing his closing argument that Obama bungled the economy and is too fierce a partisan to work with Republicans. The president was in Madison, Wis., where he appeared with legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen. “I stood with President Obama four years ago, and I’m proud to stand with him today,” Springsteen said. Obama hugged the singer and reminded the crowd, “We’ve got more change to make.” Turnout was expected to be down somewhat from 2004 and 2008, according to models developed by the Gallup Organization. Voters “have not been quite as engaged” in

the election, a Gallup analysis said, and many voters could be distracted by Sandy, whose impact is still being felt in parts of the Northeast. As the night unfolds, here’s how to watch the returns:


Most states are solidly for Obama or Romney, so 11 are likely to decide the race. All have polling places scheduled to close by 10 p.m. EST. All went for Obama last time, and he has to hold on to most of them to win again. Hour by hour: 7 p.m. EST: Virginia. Obama’s 2008 victory was the first there by a Democratic presidential candidate since 1964. Romney needs its 13 electoral votes. 7:30 p.m. EST: Ohio, North Carolina. Romney needs Ohio and its 18 electoral votes; no Republican has won the White House without the state. North Carolina is another state Obama won in 2008, the first time a Democrat had taken it in decades, but Romney is counting on winning its 15 electoral votes. If not, he’s probably in trouble. 8 p.m. EST: New Hampshire, Florida, Pennsylvania. If Obama wins Florida, Romney’s chances would get shakier. But if Romney wins Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral

votes, which Obama has regarded for months as his, the president should start worrying. The four electoral votes of New Hampshire — Democratic in the last two elections — matter if the race stays close. 9 p.m. EST: Wisconsin, Colorado, Michigan. A Romney win in Michigan — a state Obama won

last time by 16 percentage points — would be another sign that the president is faltering. Wisconsin and Colorado are tossups. 10 p.m. EST: Iowa, Nevada. Nevada has been trending Democratic. A strong Latino turnout would be a signal that Obama is doing well. Iowa is another tossup.

From the ordinary. From the crowd.

Find out how you can advance in your field with an MFA from SUVA.

Four main factors determine your BAC: weight, sex, time, and alcohol amount. You can’t change your weight and sex while drinking, but you can control how strong your drinks are and how fast you drink them. Women often reach higher BACs than their male drinking partners because women’s bodies break down alcohol more slowly than men’s. Most women have lower levels (30% less) of the liver enzyme, alcohol dehydrogenase, which metabolizes alcohol. Many people think they will just sleep it off and “wake up sober.” The truth is, the liver takes time to process alcohol. The more you drink, the longer it takes. So, if you have to study, work, or drive home the morning after partying, you might still be impaired when you get out of bed. To see how long it takes the average person to sober up, check out the charts below. 1 drink = 12 oz. beer= 4-5 oz. wine= 1 oz. liquor

At the polls? Beware of illegal voter suppression Andres Dominguez Arizona Daily Wildcat


ost of us are probably ready to get the election over with today and let the votes count themselves. We won’t bother watching the TV, listening to the radio or otherwise exposing ourselves to the massive wave of election coverage that is sure to dominate every form of media available. This is certainly true in Arizona. A virtually tied presidential race, a tight U.S. senatorial campaign and dozens of state and local contests are at stake, so news coverage and updates are likely to permeate every TV, radio and computer. However, relieved voters today should be aware that certain individuals may be trying to tamper with their right to walk into the polls today. Some individuals, known as “poll watchers,” are standing outside polling places trying to turn certain people away. Poll watchers are permitted outside polling places (for questionnaires, surveys, etc.), but attempting to prevent anyone from voting is illegal. This is what a certain group seeks to do regardless. The group allegedly aiming to discourage members of certain voting demographics is called Verify the Vote, Arizona Elections Task Force. Even if the group is not directly responsible for trying to suppress certain voters from entering the polls, they certainly discourage readers and volunteers with charged terms like “the ongoing corruption of our elections” and claiming that “unmonitored elections invite fraud.” Verify the Vote claims to be a nonpartisan institution championing the cause of “legitimate voters” and “aggressively pursuing cases of fraud” in voting. As nonpartisan as this may sound, a closer look reveals a string that follows Tea Party philosophy in voter identification laws that have taken hold of conservative states. Additionally, an online poll shows that 96 percent of poll respondents believe that voter identification laws are needed. In the state and national spotlight, this issue is much more contested. On Verify the Vote’s website, with venues for “election watchers,” Brad Zinn answers questions by potential volunteers. Zinn interviewed Congressional District 3 Republican candidate Gabriela Saucedo Mercer when she made her infamous comments regarding Middle Eastern immigrants to the United States. The interview was for Western Free Press, an Arizona-based conservative online news site. Additionally, Verify the Vote AZ is parented by True the Vote, a national “voter fraud detector” headed by Catherine Engelbrecht. In September, The New York Times reported that Engelbrecht gives speeches telling conservative voters that buses are ferrying fraudulent voters to different polling sites. “… No one can prove that it [the fraudulent voter bus] exists,” the Times article said. In Arizona, apparently only certain voters are targeted to be turned away from the polls. One of the groups being targeted are college-aged voters. Members of the organization are telling students they do not qualify under the “intend to reside” provision of the state’s voting law. But out-of-state students who register with the Pima County Recorder’s Office to vote are perfectly entitled to. And voters of (you guessed it) Hispanic origin are being told they don’t qualify to vote, either. It is unclear how widespread and prevalent this voting infringement is. You have the right to question anyone outside a polling place who is infringing on your right to enter the building. Even if someone does not belong to Verify the Vote, question anyone who tries to turn you away. If you are voting today and encounter this, report it to the Pima County Elections Department and to the Secretary of State’s office. It is your right to enter the polling place and cast your vote. — Andres Dominguez is a senior studying political science and journalism. He can be reached at or on Twitter via @AndresReporting.

Schools operate as businesses; students forced to bear costs Jason Krell

Arizona Daily Wildcat


eing a college student is expensive, and it’s progressively costing more: The cost of being a student has gone up 1,120 percent over the last 30 years, according to an August Bloomberg report. It’s harder, now more than ever, just to maintain the cost of acquiring an undergraduate degree. But what about those extra costs associated with trying to educate yourself beyond college graduation? November marks the time of year when many seniors are starting to have to shell out even more money for graduate school application fees and the standardized tests that many schools require. The fact that any student has to pay these fees is garbage — tests get a pass only because someone has to pay the people making and grading them, and they can serve as a good measuring stick for schools. Application fees, though, no longer serve a purpose. As an outsider, it’s almost impossible to determine why the fees exist in the first place. Searching variations of “why do graduate colleges charge application fees?” on Google yields nothing informative. Now, a lack of results from a Google search doesn’t mean the answer doesn’t exist, but in a society where important information is often immediately accessible, isn’t the lack of transparency concerning? According to Andrew Carnie, the UA’s dean of the graduate college, there are

a good many reasons graduate school application fees exist. “Processing an application to the Grad College is not a cheap proposition,” Carnie said in an email. “There are many costs that the institution must bear when a student applies, particularly in light of the shrinking state support, which means that we have to find alternative measures to meet the graduate enterprise’s financial demands.” Carnie lists costs such as maintaining the online servers that host the application, both from a computer equipment standpoint and a personnel one. There is also a database that stores all applications, Carnie said, which is quite costly. Lastly, the people who help applicants throughout the process have to be compensated for their work somehow. “These expenses have to be paid for, so we direct those costs to the applicants because they are the people who benefit from the services we provide,” Carnie added. Carnie brings up a good point — schools do need money to operate and pay faculty and staff, but it shouldn’t be a student’s responsibility to carry so much of the burden. A university isn’t an exclusive night club and it’s certainly not a business: It’s a place for people to learn. Despite that though, universities are adopting a more business-like approach in an effort to increase funds, according to a

In response to “Country music definitely isn’t what it used to be” (by K.C. Libman, Nov. 5): “Country is now simply pop music wearing a cowboy hat - and that isn’t a bad thing.” Anyone...ANYONE that would make a comment like that has absolutely no love of country music and what it represents. The integrity of it is being lost and with the over-saturation of Ms. Swift, it’s all but dying. The country music of just 7 years ago is dead. Even Ms. Swift’s music, which started out well enough, has become blatantly pop. There are different genres for a reason. To begin diluting (or should I say polluting) one in order to “push” more music sales is dangerous. Soon, there will be no country music airways, except those that play the “oldies.” Country music will have become a dinosaur if left up to the likes of Taylor Swift and the money hungry record labels. She and her ilk have no connection or love of country music ... never have. The country music industry was simply a stepping stone for her and her label. Now that they’ve bought their way out, they simply don’t care any longer. Country music is simply a distant memory. Swift no more cares for the integrity of the genre she professes to love than “LIBMAN” does. I wish Swift would start recording rap. It would tickle me to see that genre’s reaction. Taylor is no more than a poser who sells her wares to the highest bidder. I could tell you what that makes her by definition ... but she seems to be a sweet person, so I’ll refrain. — Randy

June article by the Huffington Post. At the same time, it’s hard to blame the university when officials are only doing what they must to keep the school open. The point is, however, that students should be paying as little for higher education as possible, and if schools are so desperate for money they need to look elsewhere than the already emptying pockets of students and their guardians. Having to turn to students for money is the fault of another institution though. As Carnie said, as the state government supports universities less, schools have to look elsewhere for money. I understand that state governments are stretched thin financially too, and since I’m not an economist I don’t know of a good solution so that everyone wins. The state really should be giving universities more money, but that’s another column altogether. Fortunately, at least for those applying to the UA’s graduate programs, Carnie said the university is on the low end of the financial spectrum for graduate school applications, and that the prices haven’t gone up in years. It’s a start, but still not quite satisfactory. All I know is students pay enough for education as it is, and they damn well shouldn’t have to pay for any more than they have to, especially if they’re only trying to further their education. Whether the state needs to have stronger support for education or universities need to find another method of raising funds, graduate school applications shouldn’t cost students anything but time. — Jason Krell is the copy chief for the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

Police Beat MAXWELL J MANGOLD Arizona Daily Wildcat

Student survives overdose, selfinflicted stab wounds

A UA student was transported to University of Arizona Medical Center for possible drug overdose and alcohol intoxication at 2:47 a.m. on Nov. 1. A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall in response to a report that a student had taken some pills, and was now heavily intoxicated. When the officer arrived, a resident assistant led him to the room where the man was located. Upon entering the room, the officer and RA questioned the man while observing his dilated pupils and bloodshot eyes. A woman was also in the room during questioning. The man said he’d been having trouble in school and was depressed because he knew he wouldn’t be returning next semester, since he owes the university money. He said he was afraid for his safety and to go back home to California, because he believes people in the area want to hurt him. During his explanation, the officer noted the suspect was “very lethargic and intoxicated.” The man said he’d drank Jameson whiskey earlier, and had taken five Xanax. When Tucson Fire Department arrived and evaluated the man, he changed his story, this time saying he had taken 10-15 pills, and said yes when asked if he was trying to harm himself. Following this conversation, TFD rushed the man to UAMC, where his blood alcohol content was measured at .213, and his body tested positive for an ingredient in Xanax. UAPD then questioned the woman with him earlier in his dorm, who told police the student had expressed a desire to die. The next morning, a nurse at UAMC told an officer during a follow-up assessment that the man was scheduled for a mental heath evaluation at 10 a.m., but prior to that got out of bed, found a pair of scissors and repeatedly stabbed himself six times in the chest and neck. None of the wounds were life threatening, but his family was contacted and his mental state was evaluated further.

Drunk student rocks hot dog stand

A UAPD officer contacted a man after a report of suspicious activity and possible criminal damage to a UA hot dog stand at 12:02 a.m. on Nov. 1. The reporting party witnessed a man wearing a dark sweatshirt and knitted hat, near McClelland Hall using a decorative rock to try and break loose the lock on the closed stand. Following the man’s repeated unsuccessful attempts of breaking the padlock, he headed northbound on Olive Road. At this time, the police found the suspect fitting the description, and questioned him. The man, a UA student, identified himself with an Arizona driver’s license and was noticeably intoxicated. When the officer asked the student if he was responsible or knew who was responsible for the attempted break-in at the hot dog stand, he said he had no recollection of the incident, “but it seemed like something he would do if he was drinking.” Following this, the reporting party identified the hooded suspect as the one responsible for the incident, and he completed a Code of Conduct form, which was forwarded to the Dean of Students Office.

UA closes out preseason with Chico State KYLE JOHNSON Arizona Daily Wildcat

A lot of attention has been paid to the freshmen in the preseason, but with one game left on the exhibition slate in a matchup against Division-II Chico State tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the McKale Center, several storylines concerning veteran players need to be watched.

The early struggles of Parrom

Last year guard/forward Kevin Parrom experienced tragedy after tragedy. His mother and grandmother passed away and he was shot in the leg during a trip to New York. He was able to fight his way back onto the court, but the bad luck persisted as he suffered a season-ending fracture in his right foot. Now the senior has returned to full strength emotionally and physically, head coach Sean Miller said, but his play on the court hasn’t. “He hasn’t practiced well recently,” Miller said. “He did some good things in the game [against Humboldt State], but Kevin’s going to be fine. He’s very important to our team. He gives us another old, experienced player, an excellent shooter and we’re going to be a better team if he plays well.” Parrom scored eight points on 3-for4 shooting against the Lumberjacks last Wednesday, but his influence was limited elsewhere on the court and went largely unnoticed in his 18 minutes of play. This isn’t the first time Miller has said Parrom is underperforming in practice, but with the season just around the corner, the Wildcats will need to see more from one of their key seniors.

The forgotten guard

Last year was not memorable for guard Jordin Mayes. After playing a pivotal role in Arizona’s second round matchup against Texas in the NCAA tournament in 2011’s Elite Eight run, in which Mayes went 4-for-4 from the three point line and had 16 points and two steals in 19 minutes, the future

looked bright for the then-freshman guard. But during last year’s offseason, Mayes had surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left foot, and the injury continued to bother him, until his Feb. 2 return at Cal. Even though Mayes played in 29 games last season, he never made the leap forward and, in fact, regressed. His scoring average dipped down slightly to just 4.7 per game and he shot 29 percent from the three point line — a far cry from his 45.3 percent his freshman season. This year Mayes will likely come off the bench to backup Mark Lyons, and the junior guard impressed Miller against Humboldt State. “I thought Jordin Mayes came into the game and did a really good job,” Miller said. “Jordin has a lot of experience, he’s an important part of our team as well. It’s always great when he comes in and plays well.” Mayes scored six points and had four assists in 17 minutes of action against Humboldt State.

Free throw woes

While Arizona’s early issues at the line don’t fall solely on the head of sophomore Angelo Chol, the Wildcats’ only veteran big-man looked a bit rusty from the foul line against Humboldt State. In the Red-Blue game and against the Lumberjacks, Chol shot 3-of-9, which is well under his 67.9 percent shooting average last year. As a team, Arizona shot 19-for-32 against Humboldt State, which is 64.9 percent from the line this preseason. “We got to the foul line quite a bit through our offensive rebounding and posting up,” Miller said. “I think we’re a physical team, but when you get there you have to convert.” Arizona was 110th from the line last year with 70.5 percent shooting, which was still second best in the Pac12. Now that the Wildcats have an interior presence, Chol and the rest of the big men will need to convert from the charity stripe to make it a real advantage.

UCLA loss won’t be definition of Wildcats’ season

he loss to UCLA was the most embarrassing, least pleasant football game for the Wildcats in a long time. Arizona (5-4, 2-4 Pac-12) was dejected on the sideline, befuddled heads dropped in hands. In the postgame news conference, it was Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez who told media members that this loss will not define the Wildcats or their season. Then it was senior center Kyle Quinn and junior linebacker Jake Fischer saying the same thing, that a 66-10 loss against UCLA will not define the work they’ve put in and the work they have left to do. Arizona’s loss means any slim chance they had at still making the Rose Bowl is more than likely done — barring total collapse of UCLA — since the Bruins have taken control of the Pac-12 South. But this doesn’t mean that the season is over for the Wildcats. They still have contests against bottom dwellers Colorado this Saturday, Utah next week and the ever-unpredictable rivalry game against Arizona State. The road just got undoubtedly tougher now that senior quarterback Matt Scott, who led the Pac-12 in passing, did indeed suffer a concussion Saturday night. Backup B.J. Denker does not have the experience Scott has, throwing for only 12 yards against UCLA. In game action this season, Denker has thrown for just 123 yards and one score. “We have total confidence in B.J.,” senior center Kyle Quinn said. “I don’t think [the offense] changes at all,” receiver Austin Hill added. “We’re still going to run our offense the way [coach Rodriguez] wants us to.” So far, the defining view of the 2012 Wildcats has been the lack of

depth they have at every position, including quarterback. Prior to the season, Scott had not taken a hit in any game-like situation in almost two years. Colorado is the worst team in the Pac-12 by a longshot, and one of the worst teams in the country, dropping a game against WAC opponent Fresno State in Week 3, 69-14. The Wildcats cannot let the UCLA loss carry over to the future, as they often have done in the past. Each of the last three seasons, blowout losses have turned into losing streaks for Arizona.

Everything is better when you win, Rodriguez likes to say. The food tastes better, the return trip to Tucson is better and players and coaches sleep better.

Rodriguez’s Wildcats have been more resilient than that, losing close, competitive games to Oregon State and Stanford after being crushed by Oregon in their first road game of the season. Arizona players will not let the 56-point loss define them or this first season under Rodriguez, but losing multiple games in a row in a similar fashion will define the season regardless of what they say and what Rodriguez tells his team. Everything is better when you win, Rodriguez likes to say. The food tastes better, the return trip to Tucson is better and players and coaches sleep better. This loss should make the Wildcats want to fight back.

The Arizona women’s basketball team defeated Grand Canyon University Monday night at McKale Center by a score of 8155. “It’s always good to get a win under your belt and play someone different,” head coach Niya Butts said. “I thought we played hard, for the most part, as a team. We came out really aggressive and although we created turnovers we turned over the ball ourselves offensively.” Throughout the game Arizona struggled with turnovers, committing 20. Early on, the Wildcats had a hard time scoring in the post and relied heavily on outside jump shots and free throws. However, the Wildcats were able to maintain a solid double-digit lead, and led 42-20 at halftime. Arizona and its aggressive full court defense set the tempo midway through the first half and the rest of the game. Davellyn Whyte stood out for Arizona, scoring 27 points, along with four assists and eight steals. “Our press and half court defense forced a lot of turnovers and we feel pretty good about that effort,” Butts said. “But we took our foot off the gas for a little bit and they were able to make a run.” In the beginning of the second half the Wildcats lost Whyte for six minutes due to injury, and during that time the Wildcats struggled to find the rhythm they had in the first half. Even after Whyte’s return, Arizona struggled with turnovers and rebounds. With nine minutes left in the game the Wildcats saw their 22-point halftime lead shrink to 13. “We didn’t have the same intensity in the beginning of the second half,” Butts said. “We can’t have those moments. Great teams play that way the whole time.” In the second half, Arizona saw more production from junior transfer forward Alli Gloyd, who finished the game with 14 points and four rebounds. “It was nice getting out there in the swing of game mode,” Whyte said. “I didn’t do as well as I’d

liked to on defense and that’s our focus this year, so gotta step it up.” Even though Arizona leaned heavily on Whyte, Butts was satisfied with the play of sophomore Layana White and freshman Keyahndra Cannon. “I was very, very pleased with Cannon’s performance,” Butts said. “She (Layana White) went hard and took good shots. Last year she would take bad shots and some quick shots so that was good to see.”

In the final two minutes, senior forward Cheshi Poston presence was felt down low as she blocked a shot, grabbed a couple of rebounds and scored two consecutive baskets to seal the win for the Wildcats. “It’s always good to get the first win under your belt,” Butts said. “But we got to stop turning the ball over, period. If we stop turning the ball over it will help us out a lot offensively.”

UA soccer fights back after 2011 disaster with solid year

IMAN HAMDAN Arizona Daily Wildcat

After struggling to a single-win season in 2011, the Arizona women’s soccer team made significant improvements this year. Roster and coaching changes played an integral part in the team’s 6-11-3 record.

MVP: Gabby Kaufman, Jazmin Ponce

john routh/arizona Daily Wildcat MIDFIELDER JAZMINE PONCE was the Wildcats most valuable player on offense this season, scoring eight goals.

Goalkeeper Gabby Kaufman transferred to the team from Texas Tech in the spring and showed she could fill in for the graduated Ashley Jett between the posts. In her debut season with the Wildcats she started all 20 games, racking up a total of 108 saves, surpassing Jett’s total last season by 23. Kaufman led the Pac-12 in saves for the season with a .766 percent save percentage, putting her in the top 10 for the conference. On the offensive end, Ponce led the team with eight goals. Not only did Ponce quadruple the number of goals she scored last season, she also tied the total number of goals the team scored last season collectively. Ponce led the Pac-12 in number of shots taken for the season and shots per game with 85 and 4.25 respectively.


Unsung player

Senior midfielder Jessica Culver snuck three goals in the back of the net practically unnoticed. With such an intense midfield and forward lineup, which included Ponce, Olympian Ana-Maria Montoya and international players like Candice Osei-Agyemang and Hannah Wong, Culver’s efforts went unnoticed. Not only did she start all 20 games but she was the second-highest scorer on the team after Ponce.

Best newcomer: Hannah Wong

Hands down the best newcomer is Kaufman, but since she is an MVP there is another player who deserves recognition. Freshman forward Hannah Wong came off the bench to play in 15 games. Even though she did not score any goals, she recorded a team-high three assists. Wong took 12 shots for the season, which is the fourth-highest number of shots taken by a player this season.

Pac-12 roundup: Oregon the class of the conference KYLE JOHNSON Arizona Daily Wildcat

The jerseys may be goofy, the offense quirky and the college town small, but Oregon is the king of the Pac-12. Its rise to the throne hasn’t happened overnight, as the Ducks’ three straight outright conference titles can attest to. But to truly be the best, you have to beat the best, and the probationladen Trojans of the previous two years weren’t the same force as the Pete Carroll heydays. That’s why, before the season started, the game between Oregon and USC was circled on the calendar in dark, red ink. It pitted the traditional Pac-12 powerhouse against the conference’s new darlings. While USC didn’t exactly hold up its end of the bargain, entering the “game of the year” with two losses, the matchup still held nearly the same significance for Oregon: win and it stays on course, lose and all hope is lost. Five Kenjon Barner touchdowns later, the Ducks reign supreme in the

Pac-12. The game didn’t turn into the blowout it threatened to be early on, and the Trojans brought it to within three in the third quarter, but the 62-51 final score had some symbolic significance. Oregon piled on 730 yards and 62 points, the most ever allowed by USC, and Barner set a school record with 321 rushing yards to go along with his five scores. Not that USC didn’t put up a fight — quarterback Matt Barkley threw for 484 yards and five touchdowns, as well as two interceptions. It just wasn’t enough. Now, Oregon jumped Notre Dame in the BCS standings to No. 3 and caused the Trojans to tumbled behind city-rival UCLA, who had an impressive win of its own. The Bruins’ 66-10 humiliation of the Wildcats in the Rose Bowl made the Fall of Troy that much greater, as USC now sits firmly as Los Angeles’s second-best team. UCLA running back Johnathan Franklin was unstoppable against Arizona, racking up 162 yards to become the school’s all-time rushing leader. The Bruins’ 611 total yards and

66 points were obviously aided by the no-show from the UA defense, but the UCLA win was more than impressive and it’s now built up a nice resume. Assuming it beats Washington State next week, the Bruins just need to win its home game against the Trojans on Nov. 17 to clinch the Pac-12 south. If that happens then Oregon will have to take on teams two, three and four in this week’s power rankings to finish off the season. Win all three, and the Ducks should make their second trip to the BCS National Championship in three years. That path definitely won’t be easy. Stanford continues to win — not that this week’s 48-0 victory over Colorado really means much — and the seasonfinale against the Beavers is always a battle. For a moment it looked like the wheels were coming off the Oregon State wagon against ASU, after the Beavers fell down 14-3 early and lost to Washington the week before. But junior quarterback Cody Vaz recovered from an early fumble and

Football Notes

Wildcats looking to avoid repeat of loss to CU in 2011 CAMERON MOON Arizona Daily Wildcat

Now that the chances of quarterback Matt Scott playing have been significantly reduced with news of a concussion, Saturday’s game with Colorado might be a bit more tightly contested than originally thought. The Buffaloes are in last place in the conference, and it was safe to presume the Wildcats had a chance of blowing them out of Arizona Stadium, as Colorado has given up more than 40 points in each of the last two games. After Arizona’s 56-point loss to UCLA and with the possibility of B.J. Denker starting at least one game, the Wildcats appear to be primed for an upset. Receiver Richard Morrison and freshman Javelle Allen will be the backups. “They might [think that] just because of our lousy performance,” junior linebacker Jake Fischer said. “We’re not going to completely forget about UCLA.” Losing to Colorado may not be as far-fetched as it sounds, considering the Wildcats went to Boulder, Colo. last season trying to end a losing streak and instead were blown out, allowing the

Buffaloes to rush for more than 270 yards. “Early in the season we played a lot better,” Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez said. “The focus has been pretty good in redirecting toward the next team. We have to get back to executing.”

Road woes

“Your performance shouldn’t change when you’re on the road,” Rodriguez said, but it has for the Wildcats. In road games at Oregon, Stanford and UCLA, the Wildcats have only played competitively just once, falling in overtime to the Cardinal. Against Oregon and UCLA, they were outscored 115-10 and looked unfocused. “I don’t know if it’s youth,” Rodriguez said. “I thought our execution wasn’t that bad at Oregon. I didn’t see any wide-eyed looks [from players before the game].” Rodriguez said the team appeared focused and that he did not notice anything different in playing. On the road, they faced more than 80,000 fans in a charged environment at the Rose Bowl, and a sold out crowd

at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Ore., which they have not seen at home, since Arizona Stadium has only had more than 50,000 fans on one occasion.

Rodriguez to open up punt return competition

Arizona punt returner Richard Morrison’s season-long struggles continued against UCLA, and after fumbling a punt in the first half of Saturday’s loss at UCLA, which led to a Bruins touchdown, Rodriguez said that there will be other players taking reps in the punt return game in preparation for the Colorado game. “[Corner] Jonathan McKnight, maybe [receiver] Johnny Jackson,” Rodriguez said. “We haven’t repped [receiver] Austin Hill there, but he did it in high school.” Morrison returned a punt for a touchdown against Washington two weeks ago, but has still not seen very much time at receiver since early in the season, in part due to fumbling problems. “Don’t try to make the heroic catch,” Rodriguez said. “If you have to run up and catch it, it may take a funny bounce anyway.”

She said it “We have obviously improved from seasons before,” senior defender Alex Smith from page 7 said. “This was definitely a more dedicated senior Wildcats’ careers. group. It was a rollercoaster of emotions. Junior midfielder Shannon Heinzler made There were a lot of highs, a few lows and the win possible by connecting with the ball I loved every second of it. People really with two seconds left in the match. underestimated our talent this year and we However, the highlight of the season came shocked them.” when the Wildcats defeated then-ranked No. 15 Cal in an upset with a score of 2-1. It was a triumph for both coaches and players alike because finally the team proved they can hang with the big dogs.

from page 7

0-for-4 start to help Oregon State rebound from its first blemish last week to beat ASU at home 36-26. Right now the Ducks sit behind Alabama and Kansas State in the BCS standings. Even if they slip up and fail to make it to Florida for the national title game, Oregon has gone 43-6 since Chip Kelly took over the program in 2009. The Ducks are 31-2 in conference and have either played in the Rose Bowl or BCS championship game all three seasons. As long as Kelly is coaching in Eugene, Ore., the ways of old are gone and a new program controls the conference. The Pac-12 has a new top dog — maybe it should be called the top Duck. — Kyle Johnson is a journalism junior. He can be reached at sports@wildcat.arizona. edu or on Twitter via @KyleJohnsonUA. 1.
