Streetcar increases testing BY STEPHANIE CASANOVA
The Daily Wildcat With the Sun Link Tucson Streetcar going through full testing and driver training, the UA community will see streetcar vehicles run through campus more often this semester. The Sun Link Tucson Streetcar project was approved by voters in 2006 and construction started in April 2012. While revenue service was initially intended to start in late 2013, delays in vehicle manufacturing from Portland, Ore., company Oregon Iron Works caused that date to be pushed back to the summer of 2014. The streetcar will run along with traffic for 3.9 miles from the University of Arizona Medical Center to the west end of Interstate 10, stopping at 18 points near the UA, Main Gate Square, Fourth Avenue and downtown Tucson. All eight vehicles will be delivered by May, according to Shellie Ginn, Sun Link Tucson Streetcar project manager. This will give the management team enough time for pre-revenue service, the final testing process where the management team has to run through simulation rides before allowing passengers on board. Testing before revenue service allows management to ensure the scheduled stops are accurate, and helps the community get used to walking, bicycling and driving with a new kind of vehicle on the road, Ginn said. “We want to make sure that as the system is in testing that folks understand how to function safely along the line,” she said. Three of eight streetcar vehicles have been delivered to Tucson and will be running up and down the corridor during its future hours of operation in order to go through full testing through all kinds of traffic, Ginn said. The city hired a streetcar management team, RATP Dev McDonald Transit, whose staff has been working with the initial Tucson Department of Transportation employees and will be in charge of operations, maintenance, safety and customer service once Sun Link is open for revenue service.

Q &A ASUA president talks new semester BY BRITTNY MEJIA
The Daily Wildcat
Although the semester just started, ASUA President Morgan Abraham has been preparing for most of winter break. With elections, Spring Fling and senate reform coming up, ASUA is in for a busy few months. The Daily Wildcat sat down with Abraham on Tuesday to catch up. DW: What do you have on the agenda for this semester? Abraham: So this is going to be a really productive semester for ASUA. There are two major things my office is working on. The first is senate reform, the way they interact and the way they represent the student body. I’ve always been frustrated by the way it works. … We have such a diverse school with so many different clubs and cultural centers that have no representation on senate. We’re trying to make the senate more representative of the population. We’re hoping to get something hammered out in the next couple of weeks. We’re going to be doing … strategic planning for ASUA. There’s never been a long-term strategic plan for ASUA. There’s never been something we can actually accomplish five years, 10 years down the line. I think that if you have a goal
We’re trying to make the senate more representative of the population.

The Daily Wildcat The UA will be teaming up with Brazil this year as part of an international program aimed to boost cooperation with higher education institutions in the country. The International Academic Partnership Program, created by the Institute of International Education, helps facilitate partnerships between U.S. universities and higher education institutions in emerging countries such as Brazil, India and China. The UA is one of 16 U.S. institutions chosen for the Brazil program. The UA applied for the Brazil program because of its past collaborations and activities with the country, according to Mike Proctor, vice president of UA Global Initiatives. These activities include studying climate change, regional development and a study abroad program. Proctor said the past programs haven’t developed as constructively as they could have. “[The past collaborations] have evolved over time, somewhat haphazardly,” Proctor said, “and not always leveraged to the highest strategic benefit.” Proctor said the UA was drawn to the IAPP for Brazil because it could provide the opportunity to do more work in the South American country than the university is doing now. IAPP plays the role of matchmaker in partnering institutions with similar goals and capacities, Proctor said. IAPP will work with each institution, including the UA, to develop a customized strategy for how to engage with Brazil. The program contains a number of core components, according to Daniel Obst, deputy vice president at IIE for International Partnerships in Higher Education. This includes the development

of a task force by the UA for a strategic planning process, a study tour to Brazil in the spring and the appointment of a mentor to advise the UA through the process. Proctor said there would not be a significant increase in activity by the UA this year. A great deal of the work this year will revolve around becoming familiar with the proposal process for working with institutions in Brazil, Proctor said. The program will give the UA a chance to better understand how to work with funding agencies for Brazilian higher education so the proposals can be submitted. “The goal of it [IAPP] is to create a substantive, binational partnership that goes beyond the traditional signing of an agreement where everyone takes pictures and then you don’t do anything,” Proctor said. With funding from the Department of Education, Obst said, IAPP was launched five years
ago as a yearly program with a focus on developing partnerships with China and India. The success of these two programs led to its expansion into other emerging countries. The IIE looks for certain criteria in its IAPP applicants, Obst said. The program looks to select institutions that show a commitment to engaging with the partner country and a capacity to develop strong partnership programs with institutions in the country. “We’re not looking for institutions that already have a tremendous amount of activity [with the country] but actually where there’s not so much yet going on,” Obst added. The Brazil program began two years, and demand has been high among U.S. institutions in partnering with the country, Obst

Memorial fund honors former UA professor

BY ethan mcsweeney
The Daily Wildcat David Lomen, a former UA professor in mathematics, died on Nov. 15 after a three-year fight with cancer. In his memory, his family has established the David Lomen Endowed Memorial Fund, an endowment that seeks to benefit UA students in the department of mathematics. Lomen joined the UA faculty as an assistant professor in 1966 where he held various positions over a 45 year career before he retired in 2011, according to a statement from his family. During his tenure, Lomen received numerous awards for his work, including University Distinguished Professor. David Lovelock, a professor emeritus in the department of mathematics, first met Lomen when he arrived at the UA in 1974, when Lomen was deputy head of the mathematics department. The two worked on mathematics curricula development and were close during their time at the UA. “[Lomen] was a true gentleman, a great colleague and a great friend,” Lovelock said. Jim Cushing, a professor in mathematics, first met Lomen in 1968 and shared a small office with him and two other professors. “Dr. Lomen was a very congenial, likeable guy,” Cushing said. “He was one of those guys where when you meet him, you can’t imagine how anybody would not like him. “They don’t make many people like that,” he said. Cushing said Lomen was very involved in reforming the way calculus was taught in the classroom. He was a founding member of the Calculus Consortium, a group of mathematicians who worked towards this kind of teaching reform. During his career, Lomen also co-authored several textbooks on calculus and differential equations, according to his family. “David [Lomen] was very gifted as a teacher in the classroom,” Cushing said. “His students seemed to really like him. He really had a way of engaging them.” Lovelock said Lomen had a big impact on his students — both undergraduate and graduate — and received an A+ Advising Award for his work. “His students loved him,” Lovelock said. “When he first got cancer, it was not unusual to see some of his students visiting him in hospital.”

Nick Bielat was a student in Lomen’s vector calculus class for the fall semester in 2005. He said Lomen was helpful in the notoriously challenging subject. “I will always appreciate his understanding smiles when I was pulling my hair out in frustration,” Bielat said. Cushing said that Lomen always worked well with his students. “He had a nice way of suggesting things, where other people might do it and you’d get this sting of criticism,” Cushing said, “but David was always very friendly.” Lomen’s daughter, Catherine Lomen-Hoerth, said he was “involved for years as a mentor on a weekly basis for students at the Native American Center and also the Campus Christian Center.” Lomen’s work at the Native American Center earned him the Outstanding Faculty Fellow Award. A public memorial service will be held on Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Fountain of Life Lutheran Church, where Lomen served as president and taught Sunday school. — Follow Ethan McSweeney @ethanmcsweeney
U.S. universities. “Brazil is a key country in international education,” Obst said, “and it’s great to see the University of Arizona is participating in the program.” One of the primary goals is reaping the mutual benefits that can be shared through cooperation with Brazil’s higher education system, according to Proctor. “Universities are inherently about knowledge empowerment and knowledge creation,” Proctor said. “That is not something that is restricted by a geographic boundary.” — Follow Ethan McSweeney @ethanmcsweeney
Talk to me about the upcoming elections. Packets are going to be going out in about two weeks, so that starts the election cycle. We’ve been preparing and getting geared up. Our biggest focus, I think, is reaching out to new people and encouraging new people to run for office. That’s always been the focus of my administration, getting new people in and connecting with other areas of campus. Elections are one of the ways you can do that best. I think new, fresh ideas are good. You have a lot of people who come through ASUA who have been here for all four years and there aren’t fresh ideas coming in from all over campus. How’s Spring Fling planning going? Spring Fling planning is going great. We’ve shifted to three days from four, to keep the city happy. We’re really excited and the alumni are so happy it’s coming back to campus. We’re really hoping to make this the best Spring Fling we’ve had in a long time and show the school and community why it’s so important to have Spring Fling on campus. What other big things should students look out for this semester? There are a couple of big things happening at the capital to look out for. In Gov. [Jan] Brewer’s State of the State address, she specifically talked about making college tuition more predictable for students. A lot of the legislators that I spoke to said that meant locked in tuition at the three universities, which is huge. The fact

ASUA President Morgan Abraham talks with the Daily Wildcat in the ASUA office Tuesday.
that Gov. Brewer included that in her address is huge for students. That’s something that students really want. The other big thing that we’re tracking is a rumored bill that would be a “no questions asked” if someone has to go to the hospital. So if you call 911 and you’re at a party, there wouldn’t be any questions or citations. That’s definitely something we’re looking at and kind of hoping we see surface this year. I think it’s more than a rumor, but there’s no drafted language yet. How does it feel that this is your last semester as president? It’s kind of crazy how fast time goes by, but this is the big semester in my opinion. This is the semester I’ve been waiting for where we can actually implement all of the things I ran off of. I think we’re going to be able to do a lot of really great things, and I’ll be able to pass along a good legacy to the next guy. — Follow Brittny Mejia @BrittnyAriel

Hail from the editor in chief
BY Sarah Precup The Daily Wildcat
elcome back, Daily Wildcat readers! It’s the start of a new semester, which means shiny new school supplies, fresh tears shed over textbook prices and syllabus days galore. It means getting coffee from the UofA Bookstore Starbucks will once again become a feature filmlength experience. And most importantly (though I might be biased), it means a new Daily Wildcat. This semester, whether you’re student, staff or faculty, we want the Daily Wildcat to be more about you than ever: your campus, your questions, your achievements and your news. Look for our new biweekly multimedia feature online called “U in A Thousand Wildcats,” where we’ll spotlight a member of our campus community through photo and video. While you’re online, tell our blog writers what you think about their opinions on everything from politics to pop culture, and your comment could show up in the paper. In print, check the science section every Thursday this semester for not only stories about the UA’s forays into scientific research, but also stories about the science of your mental and physical health (trust me, we know how much instant mac ‘n’ cheese you eat). Stay tuned to the news section for updates on how President Ann Weaver Hart’s Never Settle Strategic Academic and Business Plan is advancing, when the Tucson Modern Streetcar might finally actually carry you downtown and more. Whether you’re a football fanatic or a hockey lover, turn to our daily sports section to catch up on their triumphant victories and heartbreaking defeats, plus our editors’ predictions for games to come. And when you drag yourself to campus for that dreaded Friday class, pick up Wildcat Weekend to fuel your weekend plans with stories about local concerts, bars, food, fashion, plays and more things you can do when you’re tired of just watching Netflix under the covers. To make this semester’s Daily Wildcat shine, we want to speak to you and hear from you. Do you see news happening? Know campus community members doing work worthy of recognition? Think something sketchy is going on around campus? Call, email or Tweet us. (Depending on what the sketchy thing is, it might be good to call the police first. Only one of us knows martial arts.) But we aren’t just looking for news tips. Don’t be shy about telling us what you love and what you hate about the Daily Wildcat. In our articles, features and photos, we always aim to give you the whole truth, and we want you to do the same for us. Today, check out the editor profiles in each section to get to know us, the students who will work late into the night to put a paper in your hands every weekday. We’re here for you, and because of you. Here’s to a great semester. I hope you pick up a copy of the Daily Wildcat every day and take us along for the ride.

Fashion inclusivity still a myth BY Shelby Thomas The Daily Wildcat
ntil recent years, women wearing sizes 12 and above were extremely underrepresented — almost nonexistent — in the mainstream fashion industry. While popular retailers for plus-size women like Lane Bryant, Avenue and Torrid have successfully provided trendy clothing options for curvy women, a continued lack of size diversity among plus-size models does not send a message of body type inclusivity to consumers. Fashion’s failure to accurately represent the various shapes and sizes of everyday women, even when it claims to be doing so, is continuing to skew society’s sense of beauty towards the unrealistic. In the past few years, plus-size clothing has grown into a multibillion dollar industry. Research by IBISWorld states that the industry was worth $7.7 billion in 2013, an impressive 2.1 percent average annual increase since the end of
2008. The research predicts a revenue of $10.2 billion by 2018. While I wish I could confidently say that these numbers reflect society’s growing acceptance of the wide array of female body shapes, we still have a long way to go. Though it is crucial that customers feel that they can relate to models who resemble them, there is a vast underrepresentation of women larger than a size 16 in the industry. The fashion industry seems to have a different definition than most people of what is considered “plus-size.” Many plus-size clothing stores sell apparel ranging from sizes 14 to 22; yet, according to Yahoo, the average ‘plus-size’ model wears a size 12/14, “but appears thinner than that size due to her height.” Finding a model to relate to becomes even more challenging when the sizes seen on the runway are smaller than those seen on the shelves. A recent article in The Huffington Post entitled “Even ‘PlusSize’ Models Are Smaller Than Their Target Demographic” examines the “impossible standards that plague [this] sector of modeling.” In the article, model Alex LaRosa, who refers to herself as “visibly plus-size,” discusses companies using models
who wear sizes 8, 10 and 12 to sell clothing that comes in sizes 14 and up. This is especially problematic since 50 percent of American women wear a size 14 or larger, according to PLUS Model Magazine. The fashion industry also seems fixated on only one type of plus-size woman. The Huffington Post’s list of top 10 plus-size models features Jennie Runk, the first plus-size model for H&M’s swimsuit line; Saffi Karina, a model from the UK, who is involved with the UK’s first ever plus-size model workshop; and Robyn Lawley, who was the face of a successful Ralph Lauren campaign. These women are as beautiful as they are confident and they have earned every bit of their success. Yet their tall frames and fashion-acceptable figures only represent one sector of the curvy community. Female consumers should be able to flip through catalogues or turn on the television and see women who look like them, whatever size they are. As long as models are healthy and confident, there is a place for them in the fashion world. The plus-size industry is growing rapidly and its models represent a progressive and refreshing mindset that is necessary for a close-minded public.
Blessy Baiju, a physiology sophomore, said that she has seen some improvement in the industry, though there’s still room for improvement. “From a general viewpoint, I think media tends to portray women as perfect creations with no flaws,” Baiju said. “But lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of plus-size modeling and fashion ideas for women of all shapes and sizes, so I think that ought to show some kind of improvement in the fashion or modeling industry.” Still, women who can’t identify with the straight-size or the supposedly average plus-size models we see in the media are being told that they don’t make the cut. The bottom line is this: Every person, despite their size, should be liberated from the crippling pressure that a little number on a pair of pants often holds. If the women we see strutting down the runway and on the glossy pages of magazines reflected an inclusive and diverse definition of beauty, this liberation would be much easier. — Shelby Thomas is a sophomore studying family studies and human development.

Pulse of the Pac This week the Pac discusses a la carte education, “The Wolf of Wall Street” “Embarking on multiple majors may
defeat its own purpose” by Eitan Arom
Challenging oneself is generally a good thing. But by loading up on majors and minors, college students may be making things difficult just for the sake of making things difficult. Those who embark on multiple majors to look more attractive to employers may be defeating their own purpose by forgoing other educational opportunities, both inside and outside the classroom. … Many majors outside the physical sciences require few enough classes that students in those majors have the time and available units to customize their education. By sticking to one major, students have the chance to take courses that actually interest them, alien as that idea may sound to overly ambitious UCLA students slogging their way through multiple major requirements. … This type of a la carte education has more tangible benefits as well. Taking classes off the beaten path of one particular degree can generate career skills and resume items that are more useful to employers than a second major in political science.

“‘The Wolf of Wall Street:’
An ugly reflection of us” by Alexander Elder
Just a couple weeks ago, Christina McDowell — one of the many victims of [Jordan] Belfort’s financial scams — wrote a scathing letter to the film’s director Martin Scorsese and main star Leonardo DiCaprio, decrying the pair as “dangerous” for making a movie about a person like Belfort. … Although I sympathize with McDowell’s sentiments, she and many others have deeply misunderstood the filmmaker’s intention, as well as the important obligation film has to hold a mirror up to society and allow an audience to make its own conclusions regarding the reflection on the screen. … The audience, upon seeing how morally repugnant these people are, wants desperately to distance itself from them. Scorsese wisely decides not to grant this wish. He instead imbues these characters, as monstrous as they are, with a sense of humanity. … Some people are drawn by the edgy content of a film, which they deem as “cool.” Consequently, they seldom think about the moral implications of this content. I would contend that it’s precisely when people embrace these films for the wrong reasons that a problematic element of our culture is accentuated. The State Press Arizona State University

“Off the beat: the ‘feminist’ sellouts” by Alex Berryhill
2013 was the year being a feminist became cool. From Beyonce to Miley Cyrus to Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, A-listers moved the gender equality movement from radical fringes to mainstream culture. … I’m skeptical, however, of the round of applause these A-listers are receiving for their “contributions” to the movement. Has 2013 really been a step forward for feminists? … I don’t think these celebrities are “icons” of the feminist movement because I don’t consider celebrities who perpetuate the very images that continue to marginalize women as leaders in the fight for women’s rights — even if such images are perpetuated by choice. Doing whatever one wants might be a way of defining women’s enhanced freedom, but it doesn’t define, defend or determine the equality feminists have strived for throughout the past century. … I do think that such a wide breadth of identification with feminism makes an already commonly misunderstood movement even more complicated, misunderstood and ineffective.

126863/Arizona Student Unions; 6.611 in; 16 in; Black; 126863
BY STEPHANIE CASANOVA AND ETHAN MCSWEENEY
Not that bad
A UA staff member called the University of Arizona Police Department on Jan. 8 at 4:05 p.m. to inform an officer that she’d received harassing text messages from her estranged husband. She said the messages were a court order violation. When the officer called the woman back, she told him she did not want to make a report about the situation. She told the officer her husband, who lives in the Phoenix area, was sending her derogatory texts while she was at work. The woman said she has an Order of Protection against him because he has assaulted and threatened her in the past. Then she told the officer the messages weren’t as bad as some of the ones before, and she shouldn’t have called UAPD. The woman said she didn’t want legal action taken and said she would report future violations if they were more severe.
A UA staff member reported an unidentified man for causing a disturbance in the Math building on Jan. 8 at 10:10 a.m. The staff member told a UAPD officer that the man had been attending classes and seminars in the Math building for six to 10 years but has never identified himself. The staff member described the man as Middle Eastern, in his fifties and with a “highly offensive body odor,” and said he didn’t know if the man was affiliated with the university. The staff member said it appears the man only attends the seminars for free food, adding that in the past staff have had to delay putting out food so that guests don’t get grossed out. The man reportedly entered an office on the fourth floor of the Math building and was being pushy and argumentative with a recently hired UA employee. The employee said the man barged into her office demanding to know about a seminar. She told the man there was no seminar, but the man demanded she bring up the master calendar on her computer. The officer told the staff member and the new employee to tell the man he’s creating a disturbance and ask him to leave next time they see him. If that doesn’t work, the officer said to call UAPD.

A UAPD officer was called to Santa Cruz Residence Hall after a resident assistant reported a strong smell of marijuana coming from one of the rooms on Sunday at 10:05 p.m. A UAPD officer made contact with the RA and noticed the smell, then the officer spoke to the student and a friend in the room. Both denied having marijuana in the room, but the student consented to a search of his side of the room. During his search, the officer found a pharmacy bag in the student’s backpack, which contained marijuana, two glass pipes and a small chocolate marijuana candy. The student said he had forgotten about his backpack and produced a medicinal marijuana card from California. The officer advised the student that he was not allowed to have marijuana on campus. The officer then questioned the student’s friend, who denied using marijuana. The officer did not observe any symptoms of marijuana use and allowed him to leave. As the officer continued talking to the student, he noticed a bottle of vodka. The student denied the vodka was his and said it could have belonged to a past resident of the room. The student’s roommate then returned and gave consent for a search of his side of the room. The roommate also denied ownership of the vodka, and said his previous roommate had left several items in the room. The officer was unable to determine who the vodka belonged to and disposed of it. The first student was cited and released for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and diverted to the Dean of Students Office.

Carrying on without Carey Ka’Deem Carey’s decision to forgo his final year at Arizona leaves inexperienced running backs to fill his production
HOOSIERS HAND UW FIRST LOSS Indiana Hoosiers 75, No. 3 Wisconsin Badgers 72
K-STATE UPSETS NO. 25 SOONERS
BY LUKE DELLA The Daily Wildcat
Kansas State Wildcats 72, No. 25 Oklahoma Sooners 66
ith the announcement that junior running back Ka’Deem Carey will forgo his senior season, a new challenge has developed for the Arizona coaching staff. Backup running back Daniel Jenkins was a senior. These losses leave a huge hole for a position that has been the centerpiece of the Wildcats’ offense the past two seasons. The early candidate to replace Carey is sophomore Jared Baker, who was the third-string running back on the depth chart for most of the 2013 season. At 5-foot-8 and 188 pounds Baker’s build is similar to Carey’s, but he has yet to prove himself on the field and saw little playing time last season. Baker finished the 2013 season with 27 rushing attempts for 130 rushing yards. Toward the end of the season, Baker was featured as the main kick-off return man. Though he has seen little playing, Carey has mentioned and praised Baker in practice and in the weight room. Carey admitted during the season that Baker was stronger than him, and that he held overall team records in the weight room. However, Baker tore his ACL on a kick return in Arizona’s final regular season game against ASU. His current status and return timetable is still very much up in the air. It is unlikely that Baker will return in time for the start of spring practice in April. After Baker, no returning running back attempted a rush in 2013, so the following candidates are unknowns.

Basketball notes: York limited in Wildcats record-breaking win on Sunday take two
The Daily Wildcat
LOS ANGELES — Arizona men’s basketball is ranked No. 1 for the sixth week in a row and its 17-0 start is the best in school history, but its Southern California road trip wasn’t completely positive. Sophomore shooting guard Gabe York was more or less absent from Sunday’s action in Arizona’s 73-53 victory over USC . In 11 minutes of play, York shot 0-for-4 from the field and 0-for3 from beyond the arc. However, he did sink both of his free throw attempts and added an assist and a rebound . After the game, UA head coach Sean Miller explained that York had tweaked his ankle just three minutes into the second half and attributed his lack of production to the slight injury. “Gabe York hurt his ankle,” Miller said. “I think he’ll be fine, but we decided not to play him in the second half because of that.” York has provided Arizona with a consistent offensive threat behind the 3-point line. He has shown tremendous improvement this season. York raised his average minutes played and points per game from 5.8 and 2.4 last year to 18.6 and 7.2 this year.
Arizona fans take over Southern California The Wildcats swept USC and UCLA on the road for the first time since 2004-05. “U of A” chants weren’t rare in the arenas of their Los Angeles rivals as swarms of Wildcat fans invaded Pauley Pavilion and the Galen Center last weekend . “It’s fantastic. We have some of the best fans in college basketball,” Miller said. “Especially in an arena like [the Galen Center] — where it’s not always filled and there is a lot of opportunity for our fans to come in [vocally] — it makes it a lot better for us. It’s a hostile environment, because I’d say 30

Five-star class of ’15 recruit Tyler Dorsey commits On Saturday , highly ranked junior shooting guard Tyler Dorsey from Saint John Bosco High School announced his intention to become a Wildcat upon his graduation. Ranked as the No. 2 shooting guard in the class of 2015 and No. 7 in the 2015 ESPN top 60, he has been given a Scout grade of 95. Many analysts project Dorsey, a 6-foot-4 , 180-pound athletic guard, will only spend one year in college before moving on to
the NBA. According to reports, Miller has been actively recruiting Dorsey since he was in eighth grade, making Dorsey’s decision to commit in the middle of his junior year not entirely farfetched. He represents Arizona’s first pledge in the 2015 class. Commitments are not binding until players sign a National Letter of Intent. Other top-tier basketball programs including Duke, UCLA , Kansas and Kentucky were attempting to recruit Dorsey before he chose Arizona. —Follow Evan Rosenfeld @EvanRosenfeld17
Arizona hockey head coach Sean Hogan said winning two of the three games over the weekend was what he needed from his players. The No. 16 Wildcats (12-13-0, 5-6-0 WCHL) delivered for their leader. Thursday was the UA’s first win over an ACHA Division I opponent since Nov. 8’s game against then top-ranked Minot State. The Wildcats had lost six games in a row, including a pair of exhibition games against York, a Canadian varsity team. Arizona beat No. 5 Oklahoma 5-3 to end its losing skid. It was a successful night for the seniors; forwards Andrew Murmes, Jeffrey Wadhams and Ansel IvensAnderson each had a multiplepoint game. In net, senior goaltender Steven Sisler saved 46 of the 49 shots he faced from the Sooners (17-5-3, 5-6-0 WCHL). With Thursday’s victory, Arizona swept the three games against the top-five ACHA program this season, outscoring it 11-7. “I think we played really well this weekend,” Hogan said. “For us, it was a very successful Thursday and Friday night.” The following night, the Wildcats finally beat No. 11 Central Oklahoma (19-7-3, 6-5-0 WCHL), 2-1. It also earned Hogan his 40th career win with the UA. Freshman goalie Garrett Patrick was stellar between the pipes Friday, making 40 total saves on 41 shots. “I just went out there and didn’t complicate things, really watched the puck well, and it helped me out,” Patrick said. “I like to come out and get a good angle and pretty much just wait for them [the opposing shooter] to make a move and react to whatever shot they have.”

USC spoils Davellyn Whyte’s return to McKale Wildcats open conference play with four straight losses, with toughest weekend looming BY Roberto Payne
The Daily Wildcat A second-half comeback attempt was not enough to save the Arizona women’s basketball team from its fourth straight Pac12 loss on Sunday. The USC Trojans (11-6, 4-1 Pac12) defeated the Wildcats (4-11, 0-4 Pac-12) 54-45 on the same day former UA star Davellyn Whyte was inducted into the Arizona Ring of Honor. Despite shooting 30.2 percent from the field, the Wildcats found a way to erase a 19 point USC second-half lead. After a 22-8 run, Arizona cut the lead to five points with 2:14 left in the second half. However, the margin would go no lower, as the Wildcats failed to score for the remainder of the game and the Trojans converted 4-4 free throws to close out the game. USC was led by guard Alexyz Vaioletama, who finished with 16 points and 7 rebounds in

UA Womens Basketball head coach Niya Butts takes a breather during the last few minutes of the second quarter of Arizona’s 54-45 loss to USC on Sunday. The defeat was the Wildcats’ fourth Pac-12 loss in as many games.
33 minutes of action. “We had several opportunities to make plays at the end of the game and get [defensive] stops,” junior guard Candice Warthen said. “We couldn’t really execute.
… We just got to be tougher.” Throughout the game, Arizona struggled to consistently put points on the scoreboard, and its low shooting percentages showed that. Warthen led the team in
scoring with 12 points, but only shot 4-for-12, 33.3 percent, on the game. In addition to the offensive struggles, the Wildcats were outrebounded by a 44-33 margin. Starting UA freshmen forwards Breanna Workman and LaBrittney Jones only had two rebounds total. To put that in perspective, the two starting USC forwards, Cassie Harberts and Kaneisha Horn, combined for 15 rebounds. “We didn’t rebound at all,” Workman said. “That really makes me upset, because that’s my position and I have more pride in myself than that.” Missed opportunities have been a constant theme throughout the season, and the team’s 2-4 record over the winter break is a reminder. “It’s very frustrating,” Butts said. “You have opportunities and you don’t capitalize.” The USC loss is Arizona’s fourth straight loss to open 2014, and No. 4 Stanford and No. 19 California
are next on the schedule. Both teams are a perfect 4-0 in conference play and will be Arizona’s two highest ranked opponents of the season so far. “When you have Stanford and California coming up — both those teams are playing well,” Butts said. “There’s no time to harp on it; we have to prepare and make changes.”
We couldn’t really execute. ... We just got to be tougher.

Winter break recap
Track athlete dies after brain surgery BY james kelley
Renovations to McKale begin
The Daily Wildcat On Dec. 20, track and field athlete Lezo Urreiztieta died from complications following brain surgery. Urreiztieta was a junior hurdler from Tucson; he graduated from Canyon del Oro High School. “We are deeply saddened by the passing of Lezo Urreiztieta,” said Fred Harvey, director of men’s and women’s cross country and track and field, in a press release. “He was an important part of our Wildcat family and his passion for life and our sport will be truly missed. “We extend our support and condolences to his family and friends for their loss. Lezo was proud to be a Wildcat.” Urreiztieta had a promising future, having twice earned all-conference academic honors and placing 10th at the 2012 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships. Urreiztieta wanted to be a plastic surgeon to help people who had been in serious accidents. “Knowing that I’m working towards something I want to do with my life is really exciting, and I love it,” Urreiztieta said to the Daily Wildcat last January.
While the UA is in the midst of raising the money to renovate McKale Center, Arizona debuted a new scoreboard over winter break. On Dec. 16, the UA announced plans to renovate McKale, starting with a $30 million first phase. The entire project is estimated to cost $80 million. “McKale is a wonderful feature of our great athletics program,” UA president Ann Weaver Hart said. “I was going to use the word ‘icon,’ but I’m afraid that the frayed edges around McKale are part of iconic reality for all of us, and it is something that has needed an uplift for a long time.” Tucsonans Cole and Jeannie Davis donated $6 million to the project. A few weeks later, after the men’s basketball team won against Washington, the UA announced a “challenge gift” from an anonymous source who promised to match the money if the UA could raise $8 million. As of Jan. 4, $1.6 million had been raised toward that challenge. If the UA succeeds, it will have raised $28.6 million toward the $30 million goal. UA athletics director Greg Byrne said he expects to have the money raised by April and begin the rest of the

No. 17 Arizona gymnastics opened the season with a dominant road win at IllinoisChicago on Saturday. The Gymcats finished first in every event. Head coach Bill Ryden said in a press release that he was happy with their start. “They did a great job for their first time out,” Ryden said. “For three events, we were on cloud nine.” Arizona earned a team total of 48.700 on bars, the first event of the year. Junior Allison Flores tied for first place, leading Arizona with a 9.800 score on bars. Sophomore Lexi Mills and freshman Krysten Howard had scores of 9.750, and senior Jordan Williams and freshman Gabby Laub added scores of 9.725 and 9.675. Arizona finished with a team total of 48.975 on vault. The top three scores on vault were given to junior Kristin Klarenbach, sophomore Shelby Edwards and Williams. “We feel like we have a vault team that should score over 49.000 every time, and we were very close to that [Saturday],” Ryden said. According to Ryden, the UA made a lot of changes to the lineup prior to the meet. The third event of the competition was floor, and Klarenbach led Arizona with a 9.900.
“It looks like once again, floor is going to be our best event,” Ryden said. The final score on floor for Arizona was 49.175. The Gymcats ended the event title with top-three finishes from Klarenbach, Williams and sophomore Jessie Sisler. Their final score on beam was 47.900, despite three falls. “To have a really good meet going and then have three falls on beam, we expect more from ourselves than that,” Ryden said. “We are going to have to regroup, figure out what went wrong and make the changes in practice.” Williams won the title event on beam with a score of 9.850, and Edwards finished second with a score of 9.825. Williams was the only all-around competitor for the Gymcats, and earned the all-around title by a margin of 0.175. “I’m very proud of Jordan [Williams],” Ryden said. “She had a great start and a great meet.” The Gymcats will travel to No. 6 Stanford for a tri-meet on Sunday that will include Sacramento State. Their home opener is Jan. 25 against Oklahoma.
does not involve the university and it would be inappropriate for us to comment about the suit. The University of Arizona has received no complaints about Sean LeBeauf and he continues to serve in his capacity as an assistant coach.” In the complaint, Tate alleges LeBeauf sent “suggestive text messages” and subjected Tate to “persistent, sexually oriented discussions and encounters,” which caused her to lose her scholarship and led to “irreparable mental and emotional distress.”
U.S. District Court on Dec. 13. LeBeauf was director of athletics and head coach of the women’s basketball team for four years at Paris before the UA hired him. Tate played at PJC for one season, 2011-12. Byrne said in a statement that Arizona has not received any complaints about LeBeauf. “The department of athletics recently became aware of a lawsuit filed in federal district court in Texas naming Sean LeBeauf, Paris Junior College and other persons associated with Paris Junior College for incidents alleged to have occurred prior to his employment at the University of Arizona,” Byrne said. “The lawsuit

The UA’s lone goal in that game was scored by Ivens-Anderson. It was a big weekend for the captain, who scored in Friday’s victory as well. Ivens-Anderson has been hampered by a foot injury for the majority this season. Heading into the pair of games against the Bronchos, the last time he

calendar year with 3-2 and 7-1 losses to York. The Lions are a Canadian Interuniversity Sport team, which is roughly the equivalent of the NCAA Division I, except the team has four players who played professionally. No. 4 Liberty (21-4-0) is up next for Arizona on Friday and Saturday. “We need to get in better shape,” Hogan said. “I don’t think we came back from the break in [as] good of shape as we could be, so we’ll work them hard Tuesday and Wednesday, then do some special teams Thursday and be ready for Liberty.”
had scored was on Oct. 11, when he potted two against Liberty. “It felt good, it’s been a long time, so it’s really nice to get the feet moving again and score some goals,” Ivens-Anderson said. “It worked out pretty well this weekend; we’ve been playing together for a long time.” In picking up a couple of Western Collegiate Hockey League wins, the Wildcats now have 14 points in the standings. Leading the WCHL pack is No. 1 ASU (251-0, 10-1-0 WCHL), which suffered its first loss of the season on Friday against the Sooners, the day after the Sun Devils had dominated Central Oklahoma 12-0.

After serving as co-sports editor in the fall, James Kelley’s editorship goes into overtime this semester, this time as just editor. He must have failed a concussion test or something. James is double majoring in journalism and history and he is taking both senior capstones classes this semester, which is probably either brilliant or incredibly stupid. He’s from Tucson and has been going to UA games since before he was actually born (according to his mom).

The importance of playing rough BY Tatiana Tomich
The Daily Wildcat Amazed by the extent of animals’ personalities, spunk and zest for life, Yuri Makino began a journey toward understanding animals’ interactions and their similarities to humans with her latest documentary centered on dogs, gorillas and dolphins. Makino, the associate director of the Film & TV program and a professor at UA’s School of Theatre, Film and Television, will be showing clips from the film “Rough & Tumble: Taking Play Seriously” at Playground Bar and Lounge tonight from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The film focuses on the importance of play and the correlations we can draw between the play of animals and humans. “Human play is usually thought of as a childhood pastime, but play imparts critical skills or experiences that are life-enhancing,” Makino said. “While play may seem trivial in our lives, it may define who we are and how we came to be.” With the support of a grant given to Makino by the UA Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry, a department of the university dedicated to aiding in collaborative interdisciplinary research and innovations, the filmmaker was able to link up with a number of notable scientists who specialize in both animal and human dynamics. Dieter Steklis and Netzin Steklis, two of the scientists who are primatologists and faculty at the Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences, will join Makino for the showing and a

filmmaker Yuri Makino poses with her dog, the inspiration for her latest documentary titled “Rough & Tumble: Taking Play Seriously.” She will show clips of the film at Playground Bar and Lounge tonight at 6 p.m.
question and answer session at Playground. The duo have been studying the family dynamics of mountain gorillas in Rwanda for 20 years and much of their research on gorilla social and emotional interactions is included in the film. Marc Bekoff, another specialist who plays a key role in “Rough & Tumble,” is an evolutionary biologist who studies dogs and wolves. Through his research, Bekoff has come to believe that animal play is the catalyst in the evolution of
morality. “In play between wolves, each has to play by certain rules. Wolves who don’t play fairly are excluded by other wolves and don’t thrive,” Makino said, describing Bekoff’s beliefs. “He calls this idea Wild Justice and feels that it is through play that animals learn the difference between right and wrong.” The pertinence of play carries over into human behavior as well, as Anthony Pellegrini,
a professor of educational psychology at the University of Minnesota, attests to in the film. Makino said that Pellegrini “encourages rough and tumble play, that is, unstructured play with minimal adult intervention so that kids learn social skills. “He makes a distinction between play and games,” she added. “Games have an end goal, which is different from the play, which helps kids develop their creativity and imagination.” Nature writer Brenda Peterson also plays a part in the film, taking viewers into her life of swimming with dolphins, as dolphins are known to be some of the most playful creatures. Makino said that the importance of integrating play into adult life has become clear to her through her work. She said she’s incorporated play into her own life by “working in the garden, hiking and yoga,” as well as playing with her dog. “It should be unstructured, not working towards a specific goal,” she said. “It is about the pleasure of doing something in the moment.” One especially quirky aspect of the documentary is doggie cams. Makino said that cameras were strapped to a few dogs in the film so viewers could see exactly what it’s like to partake in some puppy rough-housing. “Through the filming, it became clear to me that to watch animals in the act of playing is really nourishing and joyful,” Makino said. “It reminds me of the pleasures of just living.”

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”
The second installment of “The Hobbit” trilogy sees Bilbo, Gandalf and a company of dwarves continue their quest to the Misty Mountains, the old stomping grounds of the dwarves. The dragon Smaug has fashioned himself the King Under the Mountain, taking up residence amongst the vast halls filled with glistening jewels. If you are already a fan of J. R. R. Tolkien and “The Lord of the Rings,” you’ll love this. If orcs, elves, hobbits, dwarves and wizards don’t sound appealing, this movie will do nothing to sway you.
From the opening title card of this film, “Some of this actually happened,” until the exciting end, you don’t know which way is up or down, who’s who or whose side they’re on. Director
David O. Russell (“The Fighter,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) teams up again with Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence in this ensemble-led tale of deception, sex, hairdos and the ’70s. Russell’s ability to find the humanity in the characters makes this one of the more all-around entertaining films in awhile.
“Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”
After the juggernaut of a marketing campaign and the fact that the original is now regarded as something of a modern comedic classic, this sequel has very large, polished shoes to fill. Unfortunately, this film is very hit-and-miss, relying on the forced, drawn-out lines of Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy. I would give a brief plot synopsis, but it’s pretty inconsequential. To give you an idea of how much of a grab bag the story is, Burgundy goes blind three-fourths of the way through the film.
Red Granite Pictures
The excess of this Martin Scorsese-directed film puts any party scene from “The Great Gatsby” or “The Hangover” to shame. Leonardo DiCaprio portrays the real-life exploits of Jordan Belfort, a stockbroker with a meteoric rise in the ’90s that comes crashing down when the FBI starts poking around. It’s three hours of hookers, blow, Quaaludes, nudity,
The Aging Bull vs. Rocky LXVII (that’s Stallone’s age in Roman numerals). Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone star against each other as two aging boxers getting back in the ring one more time to settle a tie from their younger, more limber days. On the road to getting back into fighting form (or maybe something just a little less doughy and rotund), they come across old heartbreaks, neglected sons, and L.L. Cool J. The dialogue, acting and plot go down about as smoothly as a beverage of four raw eggs at six in the morning. Alan Arkin and Kevin Hart bring some humor in supporting roles.
“The Wolf of Wall Street”

500 F-bombs and lots and lots of money. In this film, the complete realization of the American Dream is decadent, depraved, amoral and quite possibly un-American. Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie, and Matthew McConaughey support.
