As the semester winds down toward finals week, many students are looking for any reason to take a break from studying. On Monday, an appearance by Kourtney Kardashian and company was that reason. The “Keeping up with the Kardashians” star and UA alumna took a trip to the UA with her partner, Scott Disick, where the two were greeted by screaming fans and cellphone cameras. Starting at the UA, the show’s crew spent the day gallivanting around Tucson, also making stops at local bars. The couple was reportedly scheduled to shoot scenes for an upcoming episode of the show at the UofA Bookstore on Monday afternoon, but bookstore staff said the event was canceled because producers felt the mass of students
would seem unnatural on the reality show. Heather Wilson, a film and television freshman, said she had heard from a friend that Kardashian was in Tucson. Wilson was waiting at the bookstore with her friend Selma Jasarevic, a psychology freshman. “I watch them every week,” Jasarevic said, adding that she was willing to wait hours just to see members of the show’s cast. “They’re, like, my favorite people. Whenever I go to L.A., they’re always the people I look for, and now they’re here.” Not even an hour after the cancellation, Kardashian and Disick were spotted surrounded by students as they took a tour around campus, led by a member of a UA ambassador team. Twitter and Instagram users snapped pictures of the pair on the UA Mall, in the UA Main Library and in restaurants on University Boulevard.
Tweets came every minute as people tried to determine where Kardashian and Disick were heading next. A crowd amassed in front of Gentle Ben’s Brewing Company on University Boulevard of students eager to catch a glimpse of Kardashian and her entourage. “I drove home this morning from Thanksgiving break, heard she was here and went and changed my entire outfit,” said Taryn Wright, a journalism junior. “No one can meet a Kardashian looking the way I did, let’s be real.”

Hogan heads to Europe UA lacks sufﬁcient to coach USA hockey BY JOEY PUTRELO
Some students were able to interact directly with the stars, including Kyle Fisher, a communication freshman who followed the couple all day. “[Disick] went over the balcony and just poured another thing and, like, it went all over me,” Fisher said. “Scott Disick poured a shot for me all over me.” Javier Busanez, an undeclared freshman, said he waited outside the bar and was able to touch Kardashian. “I ran up to her, kind of hugged her, and they’re like ‘No, no hugs,’”
Wildcat hockey will be without head coach Sean Hogan this weekend, as he leaves Thursday for Europe to serve as an assistant coach with the 2013 U.S. Men’s National University Team in the Winter World University Games. USA Hockey selected the Michigan native from a pool of applicants. Hogan, now in his third year as front man of No. 12 Arizona (10-10-0), will miss Friday and Saturday night’s games against No. 1 ASU (21-0-0). It will be the fifth team he has ever coached. “I’m excited about it because I’ve never had the chance to represent the United States at a level like this, so it’s quite an honor,” Hogan said. “I’m going to be on a plane to Germany during [the Wildcats’] game, so I won’t really know what’s going on until we land and I can take a look at the Internet and hopefully I see that we beat [ASU].” The U.S. has scheduled games for Dec. 10, 13 and 15 in Trentino, Italy.

e all know Jean-Baptiste Karr’s saying, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” This is, unfortunately, an accurate description of child care at the UA. In 1998, the Summer Wildcat published a story about how it would take “at least several more years” to establish an on-campus child care center. In 2012, the Arizona Daily Wildcat published another article about how the College of Education was trying to establish an on-campus daycare center soon. As it stands now, however, the UA is still the only Pac-12 school without an on-campus daycare. If 15 years is long enough to make a whole new Batman movie franchise, it should have been long enough to establish something that is commonplace at other universities.

Aries (March 21-April 19) Today is an 8 — Today could mark the beginning of something wonderful. Push beyond old limits. Your brave acts may also push someone else’s buttons. Understand their point of view and stay respectful.

I have to think about what Zeina wants to do and not what everyone else wants to do. I still want to put other people’s opinions in there, but I have to realize that my opinion counts, too.

That’s for sure, but what role do others play in your happiness, if any? I really like — I don’t want to say pleasing others, because that doesn’t sound right — but I really get pleasure out of making other people happy. It’s good to know, when you’ve done something for someone, they appreciate that. That’s why I usually like having other people’s opinions, because I want them to know I’m there for them and know that it’s cool. But then, how do you know that someone’s just taking advantage of that, or actually appreciating that? That’s why I kind of get confused, because I’m still learning that. Can you think of an example of when you could tell someone appreciated what you were doing? When people appreciate you, let’s say they’re going through something really deep, and I’m there for them, actually staying with them and caring about their emotions, letting them know I’m there for them. I know they appreciate that. … It’s good to know that you’re a good ear, especially this time of year, because college students are broke. For me, I may not buy everybody something, but they do have my full attention.

Donation drive to help children at UAMC BY maggie driver The Daily Wildcat
A UA honors society is ensuring that sick children at the University of Arizona Medical Center have something to look forward to this holiday season. The UA chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars is collecting toys for donation to give to sick children at the Steele Childrenâ€™s Research Center. The club is accepting toys, gift cards and cash donations throughout the week to raise money for the center, which is a division of the University of Arizona Medical Center that treats and researches all types of pediatric illnesses. It will also host Stuff the Truck on Thursday evening, where club members will load a U-Haul truck with donations. Hannah Holman, the executive vice president of NSCS, said the club was looking for an charity that wasnâ€™t receiving enough attention to sponsor. The treatments patients receive are often expensive, and some families may not have the time or resources to get them a special gift, Holman said. â€œOur goal for this event is to spread a little bit more Christmas joy to these kids that otherwise may have not gotten that extra special gift,â€? Holman said, â€œor might be a little bit down because they do have to go into the hospital during this time.â€? Rema Hamdan, a mathematics junior, is a distinguished member of NSCS who participated in the Stuff the Truck event last year. Hamdan said the event was nice because it
The National Society of Collegiate Scholars will be tabling on the UA Mall every day and having a fundraiser at The Fix on Wednesday to help raise money and spread the word about Stuff The Truck.

Hamdan said. Event organizers said they thought that the Steele Childrenâ€™s Research Center would be a great group to support since it works directly with children, Hamdan said, adding that the club helps students connect to the Tucson community outside of campus. â€œItâ€™s a really awesome idea, giving back during the holiday season,â€? she said. â€œItâ€™s something simple. They can donate a couple bucks, $5, $10, to really help the community that theyâ€™re going to school in.â€? Lori Stratton, the director of development for Steele Childrenâ€™s
Students thrown back into UAâ€™s past with symposium BY Jazmine foster-hall The Daily Wildcat
Throwback Thursday will take on a whole new meaning this week when the UA Main Library hosts a student research symposium on the history of the university.

a capstone for history majors, the theme of the course was open to change. The history of the UA was chosen to be the theme in 2009 by Martha Few, a UA history professor, and Veronica ReyesEscudero, associate librarian with the UA. While the overarching subject of the projects will be the UA, studentsâ€™ individual research covers a wide range of topics, according to Kevin Gosner, associate professor and head of the Department of History. â€œOne of the cool things about the symposium is the diversity of topics they talk about,â€? Gosner said. â€œIn the past, topics ranged from womenâ€™s athletics to sororities, World War I on the UA campus, [the] experience of veterans â€” all kinds of things.â€? Nancy Jimenez, a senior studying history and MexicanAmerican studies, said her project focuses on discrimination and the civil rights movement at the UA between 1950-1969. Jimenez said she and the other members of the class had a difficult time picking topics because of the limited amount of information available to them. â€œYou donâ€™t really know what youâ€™re going to find in Special
with a serious illness often compounded their stress. â€œSo NSCS, by providing toys, gift cards, clothing for these children in need at the holidays, itâ€™s a real gift to the families that we take care of,â€? Stratton said. Itâ€™s often hard for people to put themselves in the shoes of others until they have experienced an illness in the family or a financially stressful time, Stratton said, adding that once people are in that situation, they realize what a big difference help can make to those that need it. â€œGiving to people in your community strengthens your community and makes it a better place for everyone to live,â€? Stratton said. Tasha Saffo, a senior studying veterinary sciences and microbiology and a distinguished member of NSCS, said the organization is trying to get more people involved in the Stuff the Truck event in order to benefit the kids as much as possible. â€œEven if youâ€™re there for 10 minutes or so, itâ€™s a little break from what you have going on at the time, and itâ€™s nice,â€? Saffo said. Saffo added that the event can be a moment of reflection for students who are focused on the busy aspects of the holiday season. â€œIt makes you think about what you have,â€? Saffo said, â€œand youâ€™re thankful for what things that you have that, even as a kid, you might have had that these kids donâ€™t have.â€? â€” Follow Maggie Driver @Maggie_Driver
Collections,â€? Jimenez said, â€œso even though the topic sounded good at the time, once you started researching you realized that it really wasnâ€™t going to work out.â€? Gosner said the symposium presentations, which showcase the university within the community, have become especially relevant in light of UA President Anne Weaver Hartâ€™s focus on community engagement. The symposium is currently in its third year. The purpose of the project is to give students an opportunity to work with primary source research, as well as present their findings to a wider community, Reyes-Escudero said. Students have created posters for the symposium and prepared talks about the work theyâ€™ve done. Reyes-Escudero said the goal of the theme was to engage students on a deeper level. Each student in the class had to write a 20-25 page paper on the topic of their choice, then condense the material for a five

Exploring shooters’ motives is unhelpful BY Ashley T. Powell The Daily Wildcat
ec. 14 will mark the one-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn., that claimed the lives of 20 children and six adults. As we approach the one-year mark, more news stories about the shooter, Adam Lanza, are appearing. But this should be a time to remember the victims, not feed into the late gunman’s notoriety. In today’s society, everyone always wants to know why a person would do something like this. What is the scientific explanation for the 20-yearold man’s actions? It couldn’t possibly just be because of mental illness, or because some people are simply bad. No, he had to have motives. Around the anniversary of the shooting, many feel it is the appropriate time to dig up all of this dirt. There have been reports investigating how Lanza took his motives to the grave with him and more stories are arising regarding how Lanza’s actions were entirely unpredictable and no one could have seen this coming. The heartache from losing a loved one never gets easier, but constantly being reminded that a year ago the violent acts of a stranger took your loved one must make you relive the whole tragedy. From school shootings to the Colorado movie theater shooting, the American public is at a point that when heartbreak like this happens, we freeze in our tracks and mourn, but it’s safe to say we are no longer surprised. The public has a right to know what happens around the country, and it’s the media’s job to inform its audience, but the way tragedies are being covered veers from reporting an important story to sensationalizing the villain to create a movie-esque report. One headline from CNN read, “Sandy Hook killer took motive to his grave.” A New York Times column read, “Searching for Motives in Mass Killings,” which referred to Sandy Hook. In response to the New York Times’ column, a letter to the editor asked, “Why are we always so obsessed with trying to learn ‘why’ mass killers kill?” After the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colo., a petition was circulated to not stop media coverage of mass shooting altogether, but to ask news outlets to “use discretion and report the facts — not over-sensationalize the tragedy.” The petition received 54 signatures. The “proud Colorado native” who started the petition believes this can be achieved with five methods: by focusing on the community and survivors and highlighting the first responders’ actions, discontinuing the over-repetition of details, discontinuing broadcast of photos of the suspect to remove the power of fame, practicing accurate reporting and reasonable caution before spreading harmful rumors and limiting coverage of the suspect’s role without depriving the story of the facts. It is more important to focus on the effect this tragedy has on the community, survivors and those who helped fight. Time Magazine came out with a different report from what other news outlets have been focusing on. It read, “Trying to make ordinary sense out of these extraordinary crimes is fruitless — and ultimately only encourages more violence.” The State of Connecticut Division of Criminal Justice released a report in late November closing the yearlong investigation of Lanza, leaving those wanting to make sense of it all disappointed. While the report did mention Lanza’s mental health problems, there was no mention of a motive. Time Magazine’s headline: “There Is No Such Thing as a Motive for Mass Killings.” So it’s time to put this to bed, let the families be and move on. It’s time to mourn and remember the lives lost too soon at Sandy Hook, not continue with the investigations of Lanza’s mental health or feed into the media’s tendency to sensationalize tragedies. — Ashley T.

Child care from page 1
Connections, which handles faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate and professional childcare. LWC helps students and faculty get to know child care vocabulary and find a daycare that will fit their family’s needs, and provides campus lactation resources. LWS is also able to subsidize some child care for students and faculty. The subsidy, however, is limited, because it can only be used for a facility certified by the Department of Economic Security, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Health Services or the UA. It also cannot be used when public school is an option or when the child care provider would come into the family home. What LWC is doing, it is doing well. Parents who have utilized LWC said they think it is valuable, and they commended Caryn Jung, the senior coordinator in charge of child and elder care and work/life programs, for her efforts. Erin Durban-Albrecht, a graduate student studying gender and women’s studies, first went to a consultation with Jung while she was still pregnant. “They’re so great over there,” Durban-Albrecht said. “I really like them. I think they could do awesome things if they had more resources.” Jung has worked to expand the final major child care resource offered through LWC: The sick child and emergency/back-up care program, which allows caregivers to come into the family’s home and care for the child during unplanned situations, like when they get sent home sick from school. “It gives parents the opportunity to keep campus commitments and make sure their children are in good hands,” Jung said. “I often hear other universities want to do something like it.” Despite the positive support Jung and LWC are offering, parents who have used LWC services, like Diane Daly, a doctoral student at the School of Information Resources and Library Science who receives about $2,000 in subsidies, still want an on-campus daycare. “I would appreciate the convenience and the additional money it could save me to have
on-campus child care,” Daly said. “But also, I would love if I didn’t have to completely isolate my family life from my work and school life.” An on-campus daycare could do a lot of good for the university. Parents would probably be the most obvious group to benefit, since it would be their children in good, nearby hands, but it could also benefit early childhood education majors who could get hands-on learning experience. Ronald Marx, the dean of the College of Education, said that the college currently works with local schools to provide this kind of hands-on experience, but it would like to expand with an official university-related lab school and child care center. “I think that the university community could use the service, and it only makes sense if it is connected fully to the university,” he said. Marx also said there is a partial plan written up for a lab school that would bring 200 children of students, staff and community members to university-sponsored child care. The plan would require a third party that would bring in the bulk of the full-time faculty and help pay the roughly $3 million that would be required to build a facility close to, though not on, campus. The third party would be responsible for staffing and training, relieving the university of some of those responsibilities. Depending on the agreement reached and if the university partnered with a for-profit or nonprofit organization, there could also be the potential for future revenue. Daycare is expensive. Daly said she pays about $6,000 per year at a local preschool, and DurbanAlbrecht compared half-time care for her 10-month-old to paying a second tuition. A universityaffiliated daycare would not necessarily be more affordable for parents, but an on-campus location would be far more convenient. Julia Palfreyman, a JD candidate at the College of Law and cofounder of the UA Law Parents Club, gave birth to her son as an undergraduate, five days before the semester started. She was allowed to take the semester off and keep her scholarship, which she said she admires the university for allowing, but she has still had difficulties. “I’m in a lot more debt than I

would have been otherwise,” she said, citing daycare that costs about as much as her rent as a primary source of financial drain. The question then arises: Would opening a daycare fully solve the UA’s child care problems? Brooke Lober, a graduate student in gender and women’s studies, said the problem is not simply financial, but cultural. “On a cultural level, the university advertises itself as a child-free environment,” Lober said. There are some groups that are trying to change that, but most have only found limited success. The Graduate and Professional Student Council allocated an additional $25,000 to go toward the LWC office for supporting student parents, both undergraduates and graduates. According to Zachary Brooks, the president of GPSC, GPSC was also willing to work with the College of Education to get a daycare on campus. Unfortunately, that fell through. “Last I heard, a few months ago, it wasn’t going anywhere,” Brooks said. He added that he was willing to work with anyone to make progress. “We can’t do it ourselves, and we’re glad to do what we can.” Meanwhile, the Commission on the Status of Women family care workgroup has made efforts toward creating a more welcoming atmosphere by pushing for changing tables and high chairs across campus. Student-run organizations like the Law Parents Club and Parents in the English Graduate Union provide fellow parents with resources like daycare recommendations and social events. Despite the work these organizations are doing, the UA still is not particularly child-friendly. How often are children seen around campus during peak school hours? Generally, the only children on campus are on a school field trip or doing a campus tour with their parents and older siblings. When a child is just with a parent on campus at noon, they are looked at as an oddity. “I feel like what I’m doing is perceived as pretty unusual, and that’s difficult,” Lober said. I like kids, and as much as I would rather not have one any time soon, it makes sense for a university setting to be child friendly. Families used to be more
accepted at the UA. In 1967, the UA bought Christopher City, a miniature family housing community about 5 miles off campus. It was designated as family housing so student parents, their children and their spouses could live together in university-owned housing. Until its shutdown and the sale of the property in 2000, the UA even provided limited child care to residents. There has been no family housing affiliated with the university since then. Now, the expectation of a “family” on-campus seems to be in a tour group or visiting for a weekend in October. More attention is paid to the parents of students than student parents. We beat it at football, but the University of Oregon has us beat at family housing and child care options. Its Spencer View Apartments have 272 apartments, on-site child care at the Spencer View Co-op Family Center and access to a playground. It is less than a mile away from the campus and is one of four family housing options and multiple on-campus or nearby campus-affiliated child care facilities. It would be great if there were an easy solution to all of these problems. Of course, if that were the case, we would not still be talking about this 15 years later. The College of Education’s plan is promising, but it will not go anywhere if the college cannot find a third party. Left as it is, it could be years until any developments are made. One route is to try uniting the many people who want expanded child care at the UA. When it is just the College of Education and GPSC, without other concerned organizations like the CSW family care workgroup, that’s a relatively small number of voices. A “public ivy” university looking for someone to partner with sounds better than a single school in a university. Making the problem more visible usually means more people will try to fix it, and a university-wide conversation is needed to bring child care to the UA and to make student parents feel welcome. — David W.

Two UA students were cited and released for minor in possession in body outside of Colonia de la Paz Residence Hall on Nov. 23 at 2:15 a.m. Two University of Arizona Police Department officers were patrolling for Residence Life in an unmarked car when they heard two loud thumps on the back of their car. The officers saw two UA students walking across Highland Avenue right behind the car. They talked to the students separately and asked what the thump was. One of the students told the officer the other student hit the trunk. The officer noticed that the student’s eyes were red, his breath smelled like alcohol and he swayed while standing. The student told the officer he’d drunk “a little.” When the officer cited him for minor in possession, the student said, “I will fight the charge.” The student declined to do a preliminary breath test, signed the citation and walked away. The second student told the other officer he’d hit the car to warn the officers that they were walking behind. The officer asked the student if he had thought they would suddenly put the car in reverse and run into them. The student said he was being courteous. The officer noticed the student’s eyes were red and watery and asked for the student’s ID. The student told the officer his birthdate, which indicated he wasn’t old enough to drink. The student denied having had anything to drink, even though the officer told him his breath smelled like alcohol. The student was cited and released for minor in possession of liquor in the body due to the symptoms the officer observed.

‘A dumb decision’
A non-UA affiliated man was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia and for a warrant from the Tucson Police Department at the UofA Bookstore on Nov. 23 at about 2:30 p.m. A UAPD officer met with bookstore security, who had reported a man attempting to shoplift. The officer then met with the man in a conference room. The man admitted he had tried to steal five pens and said, “It was a dumb decision,” and “I didn’t even need them.” A records check showed that the man had a warrant from TPD for driving on a suspended license. The officer handcuffed the man and searched him, finding a small piece of clear plastic wrap in the man’s wallet with a black tar-like substance inside that the man said was Hashish. The substance tested negative for Hashish, and was placed in UAPD property and evidence. The man was taken to Pima County Jail. A voided receipt with the value of the pens and a copy of the bookstore security video were also placed in property and evidence.

he said. “I kind of touched her and I hugged her and she giggled.” University Boulevard wasn’t the only scheduled stop for the group. A post on The Meet Rack’s Facebook page confirmed that the show’s cast also had plans to stop by the local dive bar later on Monday evening. A number of students also turned up to the bar to wait. The bar’s owner, Jim “God” Anderson, said the show’s producers came to him on Sunday evening, asking him to sign a release to film in the bar. Jim Anderson said he happily signed, and then gave the crew a tour of the bar. Jim Anderson added that he wasn’t sure why the show picked his bar, but he was pleased they did. “Somehow, they picked here, so I’m excited,” Jim Anderson said. “That type of publicity is wonderful for me. That’s what I live for.” After hearing about the scheduled Kardashian appearance on Facebook, third-year law students Andrea Simbro and Calley Anderson waited at the bar for several hours. “I found out from Andrea,” Calley Anderson said, adding that she’d be happy to get a photo with the star. “It seemed like a fun break from studying for finals.” Rhiannon Helms, a journalism senior, said she only found about Kardashian’s trip to Tucson a few minutes before coming out to the bar. Although she remained skeptical about the cast’s appearance, she did have some idea about what she would like to see. “I’d just like to see Scott get branded,” Helms said, referring to the bar’s tradition of offering to brand owner Jim Anderson’s face on patrons. “He seems crazy enough.” Some students too young to enter the bar still came out to wait in the parking lot, where a line wrapped around the building. Elizabeth Woods, an undeclared sophomore, and Payton Stauch, a sophomore studying pre-neuroscience and cognitive sciences, skipped their sororities’ chapter meetings to attend. Despite the hype the star’s presence drew, some students weren’t as enthused about Kardashian’s appearance on campus. Twitter user @bstein13 wrote, “Everyone’s freaking out cause there’s a fake celebrity on campus. #kourtneykardashian.” Daniel Jolivet, a UA junior studying business management, tweeted, “I was unaware how influential Kourtney Kardashian was to society.. I should have begged for them to bless me at frog #sike.” Still, some students were happy just to have gotten a glimpse of a little Hollywood in Tucson. “It’s pretty cool,” said Katrina Rudnick, an undeclared freshman who waited in front of Gentle Ben’s. “It’s always cool when a famous person comes to campus.”

Jimenez said she is looking forward to presenting her findings, despite some nerves. “I don’t really like talking in front of people,” Jimenez said, “but on the other hand, it’s still exciting for a history major to be able to show your historic findings.” Gosner said the symposium reflects a partnership between the History Department and the Main Library, as well as the intersection of history with other disciplines on campus. The symposium will give students a stronger sense of place and understanding of the university, he added. “In history, we sometimes assume we know something about the past, and then when we look at it, [it] turns out to be something different,” Gosner said. “[The symposium] gives a stronger sense of how the university has evolved over time.” — Follow Jazmine Foster-Hall @Jazz_Foster

and assistant captain Andrew Murmes was in the mix for a spot on the team as well, but USA Hockey decided to go in another direction, Hogan said. “It’s disappointing because he’s [Murmes] a very good player,” Hogan said. “You obviously want your guy on there.” Behind the bench as an assistant for the first time in three years since he was with Western Michigan, Hogan will be working under U.S. head coach Scott Balboni, the former head coach of Penn State from 2006-2011. “Any time you have the chance to learn more from somebody else, whether they’re coaching at the same level or higher or lower than you, it’s always good to broaden your horizon,” Hogan said. “It’ll be a unique perspective for me and a lot of fun.” Eighth-year assistant coach Dave Dougall will take over as interim head coach. Today and Wednesday, Hogan will lead the Wildcats at practice before letting Dougall run the Thursday evening practice. Before graduating from the UA in 1988, Dougall played for Arizona hockey from 1983-87 and was on its 1985 national championship team. He was a captain for two years, received the UA Men’s Ice Hockey Athlete of the Year award in 1987 and was inducted into the Arizona Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001 as well. This weekend, Dougall will be aided by his usual fellow assistant coaches, Larry Desmond and John Watanabe. “It will be different not having coach Hogan behind the bench this weekend for sure,” senior forward and captain Ansel IvensAnderson said. “But we all love Dave [Dougall], Larry [Desmond] and the whole coaching staff, so we’re really confident ‘Dougs’ can step in and do a great job this weekend. They’re really great guys and they know how to coach really well because they’ve been around the game a long time.” The Wildcats and Sun Devils are set to face off at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday in the Tucson Convention Center. — Follow Joey Putrelo @JoeyPutrelo

Top recruit: With the change in coaches, the Red Raiders didn’t have the strongest of recruiting classes, but maybe their least-talked-about recruit will turn into their strongest. Point guard Robert Turner is a New Mexico Junior College transfer and has started all eight games at the position for Smith. Turner has averaged 11.4 points per game, but he will need to prove himself to be more than just a scorer if Texas Tech wants to improve. Turner leads the team in assists with just 21.
Player to watch for: Crockett will definitely be the Texas Tech player to watch for. If Crockett can find a groove in his jump shot, he could help the Red Raiders on stretches. However, he will need an absolute career game to beat the Wildcats. Or he’ll need to receive help from teammates, but his teammates will be looking for him to be their leading score and rebounder.
He said it: “I think we can be special, no question,” said Arizona head coach Sean Miller following the Wildcats’ 72-66 victory over Duke on Friday. “We have to be an elite defensive team.

Arizona’s end of season report card BY LUKE DELLA
in the Pac-12 conference.
The Daily Wildcat
This Arizona football team overachieved. The Wildcats (7-5, 4-5 Pac-12) were for the most part the smaller and less athletic team on the field, especially in conference play. Throughout the season, head coach Rich Rodriguez continually said that in order for this Arizona team to win, it would need to play near-perfect football. “We’re not talented enough to play bad and win,” he often said. The Wildcats’ coaching staff needs to be given plenty of credit for preparing a team that on paper wasn’t expected to win a majority of time. But now, with the new football facilities and more of the “our kind of guys” entering the program, the sparse talent may no longer be an excuse for not winning. The future looks bright for Arizona, but for now here are this season’s final position grades.
Offensive line: B+ Arizona’s dangerous rushing attack wasn’t all Ka’Deem Carey. All year Carey gave credit to the line for his 150-plus yard rushing games, always making sure to explain to the media how the holes the offensive line created were big enough to drive a truck through. Quarterback B.J. Denker also benefited from the offensive line, as the group only allowed 16 sacks on the season, tied for the second-least
While its stats may not be eyepopping, the receiving corps grew over the year without its leader, Austin Hill, and the number of young receivers who emerged is positive. Freshmen Nate Phillips and Samajie Grant are the future of this group. Phillips became Denker’s top deep threat with the athleticism to make up for his short stature, while Grant was always a reliable short yardage receiver who had great instincts.
Running back: A+ Carey’s 1,716 total rushing yards and 18 total touchdowns speak for themselves. Expect to see him repeat his 2012 All-American status.
Quarterback: B Even though Denker made us pull our hair out at times with some of his throws and decisions, we have to remember that if it weren’t for the first-year starting quarterback, Arizona wouldn’t have beaten then-No. 5 Oregon or almost had an incredible comeback against USC on the road. Denker, a senior, will absolutely be missed next year, especially early in the season.
Linebackers: BOne of the more undersized positions, Arizona’s linebackers, such as the receivers, have a bright future ahead of them. Freshman Scooby Wright could soon be a first-

team All-Conference linebacker. But as for this season, the linebackers were the core that helped drastically improve what was the conference’s worst total defense a season ago, especially on third down.
Defensive line: C+ Once again an undersized position, the Wildcats’ defensive line was just decent this season. With senior nose guard Sione Tuihalamaka leading the way with five sacks and 11 tackles for loss,
Victory over Duke does not satisfy UA Wildcats BY EVAN ROSENFELD
The Daily Wildcat After defeating Duke in last weekend’s NIT Season Tip-Off Championship at Madison Square Garden, Arizona men’s basketball was rewarded and moved up to No. 2 in the national
rankings going into the fifth week of the college basketball season. Despite all of the hype surrounding the Wildcats’ victory over one of their most formidable rivals in program history, head coach Sean Miller said that he and the team are keeping their focus on tonight’s game against Texas Tech
Arizona didn’t have any linemen that would knock your socks off or that opposing teams would game plan around. Arizona’s 21 total team pass sacks are tied for 78th most in the country, and only 11.5 of its 21 sacks came from defensive linemen.
Defensive Backs: C While the Wildcats’ pass defense did rank seventh in the conference, it was the occasional deep pass they gave up that made them a liability. At this position, it’s hard to cover
and refraining from becoming complacent. “One thing [our ranking] is going to say is you are going to get every team’s best shot. There isn’t a team that’s going to play us now that isn’t going to look at our game as something that would be very meaningful to their team and their season,” Miller said. “Being able to go on the road and beat Arizona at McKale Center would be one [upset] that every team in this country would covet having in their pockets as they move towards March.” Miller said that the way the team practices and gets ready for upcoming games is more significant now than it has been so far this season, and that the team cannot make the mistake of thinking that a win is a guarantee just because it is playing on its home court. While acknowledging the team’s success and
up a lack of speed and size with effort. Though their sturdy effort sometimes paid off, the early deep passes put Arizona in quite a few holes early in games this year.

achievements this past weekend, Miller was also quick to brush it aside, saying that in accordance with the high standards set by Arizona’s program, a win like this shouldn’t be viewed as too big of a deal. “We have four NIT Championships now; I believe Duke has four. We have played Duke eight times as a program and we’ve won five times,” Miller said. “If we truly are about a program of excellence, then [we] have to expect to win and be able to handle playing in big games. We didn’t win a bowl game or the end of a season. That was the seventh game of a long season.”

THE UA VOLLEYBALL TEAM celebrates moments after defeating ASU during the final match of the regular season at McKale Center on Friday.
TYLER BAKER/THE DAILY WILDCAT
ASU JUNIOR QUARTERBACK Taylor Kelly avoids being tackled by UA cornerback Jonathan McKnight on Saturday in Tempe. ASU kept the Territorial Cup in its 58-21 win over Arizona.
their freshman seasons and going on to enjoy productive offseasons, Arizona’s big men Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski have matured over the team’s first seven games this year. At last Friday’s showdown against Duke, forwards Aaron Gordon and Jabari Parker were expected to face off in a matchup between two of the best freshmen in the country. However, neither Gordon nor Parker spent much time guarding each other. Instead, Ashley contained Parker for the bulk of his minutes while subsequently compiling 13 points. “Nobody on our team defended [Duke’s] Jabari Parker more than Brandon did,” Miller said. “[Parker] is a handful; he’s one of the nation’s premier players, if not the best offensive player we’ll face, and Brandon did a great job.” Miller said that Ashley made the game hard [for Parker] by following the scouting report, moving his feet well and using his length to his advantage. Miller added that Ashley is a better player right now than he would have been at any time a year ago. Over the first games of the season, Ashley is putting up an average of 11.0 points and 6.4 rebounds. Tarczewski has shown similar growth, compiling his first career double-double against Drexel, scoring 15 points with 10 rebounds. “We wouldn’t have been playing Duke on Friday night if Kaleb didn’t have the second half that he had against Drexel,” Miller said. “He was really a dominant force close to the basket. A year ago, he wouldn’t have been able to have [that kind of half]. “I knew before the season began that both Brandon [Ashley] and Kaleb [Tarczewski] — based on the meaningful minutes they got a year ago — would only improve and pick up where they left off. Both kids worked extremely hard this offseason, and I think it shows.”

The Wildcats are undefeated and moved up to No. 2 in the AP poll, receiving two first-place votes. The Arizona indoor volleyball team defeated ASU on Friday to earn half a point of the Territorial Cup Series this season. The team was also selected to participate in the 2013 Division 1 NCAA tournament for the 25th time since 1981, the NCAA announced on Sunday. The Wildcats will travel to San Diego to take on New Mexico State on Friday. Members of the Arizona women’s cross country team received Pac-12 honors. Head coach James Li was named the 2013 Women’s Head Coach of the Year. Sophomore Kayla Beattie was named Women’s Newcomer of the Year. Senior Elvin Kibet and junior Nicci Corbin earned NCAA All-American honors. Senior basketball player Kama Griffitts has scored double digits five times in seven games this season.

It is well documented that alcohol over-consumption has the potential to decrease both sexual performance as well as your sperm count. Healthy production of sperm requires normal functioning of the hypothalamus and pituitary glands (to trigger hormones necessary for sperm production) as well as the testes. Once sperm are manufactured in the testicles, tubes transport them as they mix with seminal fluids and are then ejaculated out of the penis. Any problems affecting this production system can result in abnormal sperm shape, amount, and motility. Physiological factors such as varicocele, infection, sperm-attacking antibodies (sounds like a really bad sci-fi/porn movie), tumors, undescended testicle, and chromosomal defects can also impair sperm production. Environmental factors that may affect sperm count include exposure to industrial chemicals like benzenes or pesticides, heavy metals (though not heavy metal bands), radiation, x-rays, frequent use of hot tubs, tight clothing, and prolonged bicycling. Occupational risk factors like increased stress or long-term exposure to computer or video displays may have an effect as well. Sperm can also be affected by illegal use of steroids, cocaine and marijuana, smoking, alcohol, and other drug use. Experts at the Bridge Fertility Center maintain that drinking moderately is safe. However, they also agree that all alcohol consumption is likely to impact male fertility to some degree. Alcohol reduces sperm count and quality by preventing zinc from being absorbed by the body. Lower amounts of zinc are associated with problems in the sperm’s outer layer and tail. Abnormal sperm are less likely to fertilize an egg and more likely to create a non-viable embryo. Regular heavy drinking may also damage the tubes that carry semen. Giving up alcohol completely for three to six months can, on its own, be sufficient to restore fertility. Oh yeah, just in case you were thinking otherwise, using alcohol to lower your sperm count is NOT a viable birth control method. In closing, Shakespeare wrote of alcohol that “it provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance.”
It takes sperm cells three months to mature.

My Jerusalem to rock Southwest BY KYLE MITTAN
The Daily Wildcat
IF YOU GO WHAT: My Jerusalem with fairweatherfriend WHEN: Tonight, 9 p.m. WHERE: Plush, 340 E. Sixth St. ADMISSION: $8, 21+
A year after releasing its second record, Preachers, the Austin, Texas, five-piece My Jerusalem is on a U.S. tour, with a stop slated for tonight at Plush. The Daily Wildcat caught up with frontman Jeff Klein to talk about the band’s latest record and what it’s like touring close to home through the Southwest. DW: Some people have said that the new record sounds a little bit darker than Gone For Good, your first LP. Was that something you did intentionally, or how did that come about? Klein: I had some solo records a while back and they were a little bit darker, and when we did the first My Jerusalem record, I think we were trying to make it, I don’t know, maybe a little bit more of an upbeat record. I liked the first record, but it wasn’t an honest representation and I feel like once we started making the second record, we wanted it to be a very honest record, and I think we just sort of leaned toward a darker mood when it comes to art and music. You recorded at least a portion of Preachers on analog equipment. What was the idea behind that decision and what did you learn from that process? It was about 90 percent on analog tape, and we made it with our friend Jim Eno from the band Spoon. Again, I think we wanted this record to be a very honest feeling and sounding record, and we wanted it to be very organic. I don’t think there’s anything more organic than plugging your guitar in, going into a microphone and hitting “tape.” There’s something that’s just very authentic about it. None of the recording takes were
Calexico and Giant Sand. I think it definitely has, like, a smaller, Austin kind of vibe. It’s like a cool B-movie vibe to Tucson; I feel like I’m in, like, an awesome Jim Jarmusch movie when we’re there. It just definitely has its own unique, quirky kind of feel to it.

manipulated in any sense by cutting and pasting here and there; there’s no autotune. It was basically a snapshot photograph of a band, a moment in time, and that’s what is honestly represented on the record. It’s basically just all of us playing in a room together.
I’m not sure if Austin considers itself a “Southwestern” city per se, but it’s pretty close to Tucson compared to a lot of the tour stops you guys have made. How do you like playing shows around here? I love playing shows in Tucson;
‘Frozen’ lives up to lofty expectations BY ALEX GUYTON
The Daily Wildcat When Disney releases a new animated musical, huge expectations are not far behind. What other studio has produced pieces that hold such a lofty position in culture and childhood, like “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Little Mermaid,” to name just a couple? Supplemented by a nifty Mickey Mouse short for an introduction, “Frozen” is a welcome addition to the Disney catalogue and, against the so-so competition thus far, might be the best animated film of the year. Elsa (Idina Menzel) and Anna (Kristen Bell) are young princesses of Arendelle, a kingdom perfectly situated on a fjord. Elsa was born with the power to conjure up ice and snow, something of an icy
Princess Midas. However, after a mishap with Elsa’s power that leaves Anna with a white streak in her hair, their parents banish Elsa to her room, and Anna’s memory of her sister’s power is erased. The two grow up not knowing each other, as Elsa has a selfimposed reclusive lifestyle. On the day of Elsa’s coronation as queen, though, the two sisters finally see each other again. Anna wants to have a normal relationship with her sister and doesn’t understand the reason for her seclusion, but Elsa, who now wears gloves to try to maintain control over her burgeoning powers, refuses her sister. At the coronation dance, the two get into an argument about a guy, the all-too-perfect Prince Hans (Santino Fontana), whom Anna wants to marry. Elsa loses both her patience and her

grip on her powers, unleashes perpetual winter on Arendelle and flees into the mountains. Anna teams up with ice salesman (business isn’t booming) Kristoff (Jonathan Groff ), his reindeer Sven and snowman-come-tolife Olaf (Josh Gad) to bring her sister back. The plot, for its first two-thirds, appears to be too much your standard Disney flick. A girl is
I think Tucson is great. We haven’t had as easy a time in Phoenix; I think it might be a little bit harder for bands like us, but we’re still trying. But Tucson’s been great. I love all the people I’ve met there and we love hanging out there. There are some great bands from there, too —
looking for love to add meaning to her mundane, fairy tale life, meets a guy who she’s obviously meant to be with (but of course she doesn’t recognize that) and a kiss from her true love will save the day. It’s a cookie-cutter plot with a lot of frosting, and it almost undermines the position of its two strong female protagonists. Perhaps, though, this was staged to make the final act all the more surprising, with its unexpected developments and a final sacrifice that redeems the film. On a minor note, Olaf, the anthropomorphic snowman, is one of the most memorable Disney characters in recent memory. Quite brilliantly, he is an oblivious snowman who “loves warm hugs” and wants to experience summer in all of its ocean-side sun bathing glory, oblivious about the effect the sun has on snow. This little guy innocently provides most of the humor and character in the movie. This is a classic animated Disney musical, with all of the whimsy and high-soaring vocals that you can stomach from the House of Mouse. “Do You Want
Can we go ahead and settle any question of whether you guys are a religious band? The name, along with lyrics about shaking the devil, might be kind of ambiguous. [Laughs] Yeah, we’re definitely not in any sense whatsoever a religious band at all. I don’t think anyone really in the band is — I think we’re all kind of spiritual people. The name kind of came from when I was in another band at the time and we were actually in Israel playing, and that’s where the name came from. … “My Jerusalem” is more like our exotic, happy place, your utopia of sorts. But I’m probably one of the least religious people you’ll ever meet. And I just like the history and imagery of other cultures, and a lot of cultures involve religion and things like that. From a historical standpoint, I’m interested in things like that, but not from a secular standpoint at all. — Follow Arts Editor Kyle Mittan @KyleMittan
to Build A Snowman?” is Anna’s innocent plea to her sister, who’s holed up in her room, to come out and play. The two little girls, over the course of the song, grow into distant, confused young women, a moving transformation. “Let It Go” is Elsa’s triumphant reaffirmation and acceptance of her magical powers, a bold solo on top of a mountain as she constructs a glacial palace around her. None of the songs are likely to be fan favorites that are belted out decades down the road, like the best “Mulan” or “The Lion King” tunes, but they work. “Frozen” is a solid film that does enough to elevate itself above its at times cookie-cutter plot. With the complex relationship between Elsa and Anna, a genredefying third act, beautiful visuals and the best snowman since Burl Ives and Frosty himself, this film can hold its head up proudly in Disney’s illustrious canon.
