UA provides kids ‘winter wonderland’

STUDENT WORK FOCUS OF FINAL DANCE SERIES
BY JAZMINE FOSTER-HALL The Daily Wildcat
Elementary students can explore the science of winter this holiday season with UA day camps. The Flandrau Science Center and the UofA Bookstore are working together to provide day camps for students in grades K-5 this winter break. The camps, called UA Fusion Camps, focus on giving kids a fun experience with science. Fusion Camps started four summers ago as a partnership between Flandrau, the bookstore and the Student Recreation Center, and were held at the Rec Center, said Jennifer Fields, education director at Flandrau. After some changes at the Rec Center last summer, the camps were moved to Flandrau, Fields said. This is the first year that Fusion Camps have extended beyond summer and to school breaks. Jennifer Moore, children’s program coordinator at the bookstore, said the Fusion Camps have been expanding every year. “We’re continuously growing, and part of our growth is branching out into camps that go on during breaks that elementary students have during the school year,” Moore said. “The winter camp is our first exploration into that.” The experiments students will do at the WinterWONDERland Fusion Camps have a seasonal theme, Fields said, while still focusing on science. “We always want to have a science theme, so we really came up with things like colds and flus and smell and ice and states of matter and weather,” Fields said. “But then we wanted to have some things that evoke the holidays just generally, so we have the toymaker’s apprentice and candy chemistry.” Fusion Camp organizers looked for experiment ideas that would play off the children’s creativity and imagination, Moore said, adding that if she were a kid, her favorite would be the candy chemistry experiment. “The idea of making candy and learning the science behind that, I think, is pretty exciting,” Moore said. The counselors for Fusion Camps are UA students studying elementary education and science education. The Winter WONDERland camps are being staffed by counselors from the summer sessions, like Tim Knorr, an elementary education senior. Knorr said his job is not only to watch the children, but also to make sure the experiments are safe and doable for the kids. The Fusion Camps are a great opportunity for education majors to implement what they’re studying, Knorr said. “When you put into place stuff that we’ve learned in the classroom at UA,”

The Daily Wildcat Dangling high above the ground, upside-down with nothing but two pieces of synthetic fabric and their own strength saving them from a fall, Annie Mielke and Ariella Gladstein looked completely at home while practicing the art of aerial silks. This was a fairly typical Sunday afternoon for Mielke, a junior studying marketing and German studies and an instructor at Tucson Circus Arts, and her student Gladstein, a third-year ecology and evolutionary biology doctoral candidate, who routinely
find themselves hanging precariously above the ground. Mielke said she has been doing aerial silks and other circus art forms, such as the trapeze, for almost half of her life, and has been teaching at Tucson Circus Arts for the last year and a half. Aerial silks put performers high above the ground as they do different types of stunts, with nothing separating them and the ground but two sheets of fabric hanging in the air. There are neither safety nets nor lines, only pads at the bottom that most people would not want to fall onto from any significant height. “For me, [aerial silks] has
always been … a combination between something very athletic and something also very artistic,” Mielke said. “It is kind of a combination between a sport and dance.” She added that she “loves to perform” and that being in front of an audience is her favorite part of doing aerial silks. Mielke got her start in the world of circus arts at the age of 11 at Circus Juventas Youth Circus, a youth circus school in Minnesota. She continued there all the way through high school, rigorously training upwards of five days a week, she said. Mielke, who currently teaches the multi-apparatus

A small group of students and community members gathered on the UA Mall on Tuesday night, where a rabbi spoke about the origin of Chanukah and led the crowd in singing prayers. Rabbi Yossi Winner then climbed a ladder to light seven candles on a 10foot tall menorah. Chabad at the UA, a Jewish community center on campus, held the menorah lighting to celebrate the seventh night of Chanukah. After the menorah was lit, the crowd was invited to dance and try traditional Jewish latkes and donuts. The menorah represents religious freedom, independence, family, happiness and thanksgiving, Winner said. “Light a candle in a dark room, and the darkness is pushed away,” Winner said. “We also light a candle and bring a little warmth and happiness to ourselves, our families, our friends and, hopefully, all these little candles together create a large, beautiful, warm environment.” This year, the first day of Chanukah fell on Thanksgiving. The holidays won’t overlap again for more than

— About 20 percent of people self-identify as chronic procrastinators. — Procrastinators do not have a problem with time management or planning, but are simply more optimistic. — Procrastination can take a toll on your health: procrastinating college students can suffer from insomnia and weaker immune systems, according to one study.
Why are you waiting in the hallway and not in the library or a café? Because it’s closer [to the classroom]. I had to print something out, so I came early, and now I’m just waiting. Ah, OK. There’s no sense in waiting in the library if my class isn’t in the library. That’s true. I always used to wait for classes in halls. Sometimes I’d wait for two hours… That’s a long time! Yeah! And my butt started to hurt, and I’m like, “I’m done with this.” It’s uncomfortable. Sometimes I purposely save a little bit of homework, just enough so I can do it when I’m sitting here, so I’m not bored.

Why before you leave? Why not the night before? Because I like to procrastinate. As a fellow procrastinator, I have to ask: Do you do it for the rush? You can say that. The rush of the deadline? The adrenaline? Yeah, or if I already have my homework done, I’ll just go over stuff. I’m reading a book right now, so I’ll just read it over again to see if I missed anything, or I can pick anything else up.
HOROSCOPES Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is a 7 — Dreams contain tricky messages worth deciphering; write them down and consider the puzzle. Attend to career goals today and tomorrow. Don’t spend impulsively, even with good reason. Stay put a while longer.
But you don’t feel like doing that over coffee or food instead? No. I do everything before I leave my house in the morning on purpose; I’ll eat, and I’ll do everything. I plan very accordingly.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 7 — Dive into a passionate effort. Associates need support now. It takes creativity to reach a breakthrough (but it’s available). Confer with allies today and tomorrow and try something new or unusual. Despite disagreement about priorities, you perform brilliantly.

More mobbing in a moody miniseries on TNT MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE
Nothing jolts American cinema as intensely as gangsters. It’s an intoxication that began in 1931 with “Little Caesar” and “The Public Enemy.” (The original “Scarface” would be in the group, too, but censorship squabbles kept it out of theaters for more than a year.) TV has been similarly consumed with crime kingpins since “The Untouchables” in 1959. The appeal is obviously evergreen — NBC is currently developing a mini-series about Eliot Ness. “Mob City,” a miniseries on TNT, sets a new level of synchronicity: It uses the same setting and some of the same historical characters as “Gangster Squad,” which was in theaters earlier this year. Jon Bernthal (“The Walking Dead”) stars as a former Marine sergeant, now an Los Angeles Police Department detective who is recruited as part of a departmental task force to stop gangsters like Mickey Cohen (Jeremy Luke) and Bugsy Siegel (Ed Burns). It’s 1947. Tough guys wear hats like helmets and nylon-stockinged dames give new meaning to the word sultry. Everybody chain-smokes. “Mob City,” which will spread its six hours over three consecutive Wednesdays, has a distinguished cast, including Robert Knepper, Gregory Itzin, Milo Ventimiglia and Alexa Davalos. And its hyper-stylized noirish look is smashing. Cool music, too, from Mark Isham. But the hard-boiled dialogue, which is supposed to evoke Raymond Chandler, instead sounds more like bad “Dragnet.” With one notable exception: Simon Pegg makes an odd guest appearance in the pilot and is rewarded with a ringing soliloquy worthy of Budd Schulberg. The violence in “Mob City” is almost gleefully graphic, and the plot, about a blackmail case gone sideways, is a mess. What this project has, almost excessively, is mood. It should have traded in some of that rich ambience for a story that’s halfway involving.

Knorr said, “it’s really great when you see those working and you’re making a real difference in these kids’ lives.” Fields said the Fusion Camps are important because they let elementary students do hands-on experiments, an opportunity that is often missing from in-school education. “I think that the sad reality in elementary schools these days is that science is not happening anymore,” Fields said. “Science has been really left out of the curriculum for elementary-age students, and so I think this fills a big hole.” Topics lined up for Winter WONDERland include engineering, building, bacteria, phases of matter and chemical reactions, Knorr said. One of the experiments, the science of snow, might prove difficult for some of the children at the camp who haven’t seen snow, Knorr added. “It’s always easier when you’re

Winner told the assembled crowd he referred to it as “hashtag Thanksgivukkah.” Aliza Robin, a graduate student studying speech language and hearing sciences, said the collision of holidays was practical because they celebrate similar themes. “The two holidays go well together,” Robin said, “giving thanks for the small miracles and the great things we have in life. I think it’s good that it coincides.” Making the menorah lighting a public event was good for the UA community because it highlights the diversity here, said Hilla Hascalovici, a pre-business freshman. “The menorah lighting is something that Jews all across the world do,” Hascalovici said. “It’s something that [when] people are walking by and they see it … it brings a sense of togetherness.” Having Winner host the lighting on the Mall also brings together the Jewish community on campus and builds excitement, said Asa Pitt, a psychology junior. “Rabbi gets so fired up for everything that he makes it even better than it already is,” Pitt said. “He wanted to boost it up tonight.” Many of those who attended said lighting the menorah had personal meaning for them. Grant Rosenberg, a sociology sophomore, said the menorah lighting brought him closer to his faith. “Being able to experience this and be reminded of my faith and the things important to me and the things that I’m thankful for in the holidays was really special,” Rosenberg said. Pitt said that to him, the menorah symbolizes the tenacity of the Jewish

The streetcar makes fewer curbside stops, which provides a safe area for bicyclists to ride. People should be thoughtful and proceed with caution, Ginn said, especially in areas with green paint, which is where collisions

able to relate to what you’re learning about,” Knorr said. “We’re going to have to make some artificial snow. We’re going to have to see if anybody can draw on past experiences. … We might have to watch some videos or find out ways that we can get these kids to really experience what snow is.” The Fusion Camps aren’t just about making science fun but are also a way for children to branch out and make connections, Fields

between drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists are most likely to happen. Students on campus said they ride their bikes without any traffic problems, but some hadn’t heard of or seen the educational campaign. Citlaly Ojeda, a business sophomore, said she didn’t know about the campaign and that students aren’t as informed on the subject as they should be. “I didn’t even know, and I ride my bike around [the streetcar corridor],” Ojeda said. “Now, I feel like I should look more closely
because it’s true: [Traffic is] going to change. I think it’s going to be crowded.” Kevin James, a Tucson resident who often rides through campus, said it’s everyone’s responsibility to learn to be safe around the streetcar. “The bike has as much business to be on the streets as anybody else,” James said, “so it’s the driver of the streetcar that’s the one that’s responsible — and the bicyclist.”

To Robin, the story of the menorah symbolizes the little miracles that keep us going. “When you think you can’t make it through something,” Robin said, “whether it be something so trivial as finals, or anything in life that’s challenging, you can look at a story like this.” Today is the last day of Chanukah, and Chabad at the UA will hold a menorah lighting again tonight at 5:30 on the Mall. The entire UA community is invited to join the celebration, Winner said, because although the holiday is Jewish, the message is universal. “We all have a little light in our lives and our soul,” Winner said. “Sometimes we have low times, but the way to reach a better tomorrow or a better self is just to light up a little candle.” — Follow Jazmine Foster-Hall @Jazz_Foster

Athletes merit compensation BY Max Weintraub The Daily Wildcat
he debate over compensation for NCAA athletes is heating up, as a federal judge allowed a class action lawsuit about the use of players’ likenesses in video games to move forward. Both sides in the case were able to claim a victory. The plaintiffs, led by former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon, now have groundwork in place for college athletes to form a trade association or union to negotiate future licensing deals. The NCAA avoided a major blow, as the judge rejected a broader class certification that would have otherwise included players who hadn’t suited up for their schools in over a decade. The decision could wind up saving the NCAA billions. Rather than spending millions of dollars on legal fees to maintain a broken system, the NCAA should be working with athletes and universities to develop a more equitable model that would, in the organization’s own words, “focus on the development of our student-athletes” by creating a system that rewards them for completing their college education. The current lawsuit is focused on player likenesses in the NCAA’s football- and basketball-themed video games. A fan of the NCAA football franchise may recognize that the 5-foot-10, 197-pound HB #25 playing for the UA is a pretty damn good football player. A series of emails released during the case suggest that the NCAA was aware that player likenesses were being used. “The issue for me is that the names and likenesses are rigged into the games now by illegal means, meaning that many of the video game players have the features,” wrote thenNCAA Vice President Greg Shaheen in the emails. “It’s just that our membership doesn’t benefit from it.” Shaheen estimated that the player likenesses would be worth an additional $4-8 million a year. Then-NCAA president Myles Brand responded in the emails that university presidents would be unwilling to permit the use of athletes’ names and likenesses in video games, even though a number of schools have already profited off the sales of athlete memorabilia. “Do they realize that there is already some of that taking place on their campuses and in their conferences?” Brand asked. “Probably so.” Twelve Division I schools, including Arizona State University, admitted in a survey filed by the plaintiffs to having sold licensed merchandise featuring a current athlete’s individual
likeness. “Does the inconsistency matter to them? Apparently not,” Brand wrote. Video game publisher Electronic Arts has agreed to a $40 million settlement that would pay more than 100,000 former college athletes, leaving the NCAA as the sole defendant in the case. The NCAA has responded by suing EA for “selfdealing in settlement negotiations without the NCAA’s knowledge, authorization or participation,” according to the filing. Additionally, EA will not publish a college football game in 2014. With the NCAA fighting a losing battle on the video game front, it seems likely that athletes will soon turn their attention to lucrative TV sponsorships. The Pac-12, for example, signed a 12-year $2.7 billion deal with Fox and ESPN. With public opinion shifting in favor of athlete compensation — 61 percent of respondents said student-athletes should profit from their status, according to a SportsNation online poll— the question will likely become how to implement such a pay scheme, rather than when. When asked if college sports should remain amateur and athletes should remain without pay while in college, O’Bannon seemed to soften his stance, saying, “Yeah, I think so.” Others, such as CNN fortune blog contributor Daniel Roberts, criticize the proposed payment model that would reward all the players on Texas A&M’s football team the same as star quarterback Johnny Manziel. If I worked at the NCAA, I would be devising a system that would reward players for completing their education. For UA football players that entered school in 2006, 60 percent graduated within six years. For basketball players, it was 64 percent. The national averages were 59 percent and 50 percent, respectively. It is ridiculous that athletes at major college sports programs, who put their bodies on the line for our entertainment, don’t get a bigger slice of the $10.8 billion NCAA pie. A model that rewards players for earning their degrees won’t disrupt the balance of college athletics. The Manziels and basketball oneand-dones will still get paid in the pros, but for the 98.6 percent of college football players who won’t play professionally, maybe they’ll spend a little less time in the weight room and a little more time in the classroom. — Max Weintraub is a senior studying creative writing and Italian studies.

‘It wasn’t me’
A UA student was referred to the Dean of Students Office for disorderly conduct for shining a laser at cars passing by Árbol de la Vida Residence Hall on Nov. 25 at 12:15 a.m. A man flagged down a University of Arizona Police Department officer to report that someone had shone a green laser at his car from Árbol de la Vida. The man told the officer that someone was routinely pointing the laser at cars as they drove by the residence hall. The man was also able to identify which window the laser was coming from. The officer met with the on-duty resident assistant, who took him to the room that the man had pointed out. When the resident opened the door, he blurted out, “I didn’t do it.” The officer asked the student if he had a laser in his room and the student said “yes,” and grabbed a handheld laser pointer from his window ledge. The officer told the student there had been reports of someone shining a green laser at motorists as they drove by. The student said he would shine the laser in front of pedestrians as they walked along the sidewalk but denied shining the laser at drivers. The student said he’s built a laser before and knows how dangerous they can be if they’re pointed at people, cars and planes. The student told the officer he did it because he was just being a dumb college student. The officer completed a referral form for the Dean of Students Office on the student’s behalf.

No. 2 Arizona extends winning streak to eight with 79-58 win over Texas Tech
BY MEGAN COGHLAN
The Daily Wildcat Ten minutes into Tuesday night’s game, Texas Tech forward Dejan Kravic found himself lying on the floor. Arizona freshman forward Aaron Gordon went out of his way to stay on one side of the court, amongst a group of Red Raiders, and reach out his hand to pull the 7-foot senior back onto his feet. Gordon then continued to lead the Wildcats (8-0) to a 79-58 win with 19 points, eight rebounds and zero fouls. The young leader has been a model for good sportsmanship both on and off the court this season, and the coaches love him for that. “Aaron is one of those guys that you like to be around, because he’s the same every day,” head coach Sean Miller said. After Arizona opened with a 10-0 lead, it didn’t take long to notice that things were going the Wildcats’ way. Sophomore forward Brandon Ashley compiled 18 points and 10 rebounds for a double-double. Last season, he averaged 7.5 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. “Brandon Ashley, on offense, that was one of the best games that he has played at Arizona,” Miller said. Ashley also shot 2-for-2 from the three-point line, a part of his game that has greatly improved since last season. “I put a lot of work in the offseason and I’m still putting work in right now, so I’m definitely building up a larger comfort level with that,” Ashley said. Arizona struggled from the free throw line, shooting 19-33 for 58

percent. Even though Gordon shone overall, he only shot 4-12 from the line. “He’ll probably hit 300 free throws tomorrow, because nobody feels worse than him that he missed them tonight,” Miller said. Three-point shooting, however, was another story. The Wildcats shot 45 percent from the three-point line compared to Texas Tech’s 9 percent, with Johnson sinking three consecutive three-pointers in the first half and finishing with 18 points, 4-6 from the three-point line. “He’s on a different level,” junior guard T.J. McConnell said. “He’s stepped up and made some big shots when we need him to.” At the half, Arizona led 35-25 but had 11 turnovers, finishing with 15. “You can’t have 11 turnovers in one half and feel good about it,” Miller said. “The good news there is we did a better job in the second half.” Senior forwards Jaye Crockett and Kader Tapsoba led the Red Raiders with 11 points and three rebounds. The Wildcats did not play with any less energy than they did against No. 10 Duke, whom they defeated in New York on Friday. “You come into every game expecting the same level of competition. You want to come into every game playing at your highest level,” Ashley said. “Texas Tech is a good team, they have some talented players so we didn’t look at them any differently than we did Duke or we would any other school.”

The first match of the 2013 NCAA volleyball tournament for Arizona is approaching, and head coach Dave Rubio and the team are preparing for the first round on Friday. Dave Rubio will be facing not only New Mexico State, but also his brother, Keith Rubio, who is an assistant coach at NMSU. “It’s a little bit of a distraction to have him on the other side,” Dave Rubio said. “I like to treat all my opponents as if they’re the enemy. I can be friends with him after the match.” Dave Rubio is also close to New Mexico’s head coach, Mike Jordan, but he will have to put that aside on Friday when the Wildcats face the Aggies. Dave Rubio said it is harder to compete against good friends. Tucson local and NMSU senior middle blocker Desiree Scott will present some challenges for the Wildcats. “She’s going to be somebody that we’re going to have to really slow down,” Dave Rubio said. “She’s comparable to some of the top middles in our conference.” Arizona senior libero Candace Nicholson and junior outside hitter Madi Kingdon said they are prepared for Scott. “She’s one player [who’s] not going to make their team,” Kingdon said. “I think that we can stop her.” Both Kingdon and Nicholson have not gone past the first round
The Arizona No. 10 men’s and No. 6 women’s swim teams finish their fall season of competition with the Texas Invitational in Austin, Texas, beginning on Thursday. The Wildcats will battle Texas (No. 1 men’s, No. 9 women’s), USC (No. 4 men’s, No. 1 women’s), UCLA (No. 14 women’s), Harvard (No. 18 men’s, No. 22 women’s), Penn State (No. 24 men’s and women’s), Wisconsin (No. 17 women’s), BYU, UC Santa Barbara and Oklahoma Baptist in the threeday event. Interim head coach Rick DeMont said the team has been training and competing with the Texas Invite in mind all fall. The Wildcats have worked to produce their best times of the season this weekend. Standout UA swimmers like seniors Margo Geer and Giles Smith, junior Kevin Cordes and sophomore Bonnie Brandon are expected to record their best times of the season this weekend. Geer, a 20-time All-American and 2013 NCAA Champion in the 50-yard and 100y freestyle, is the favorite in her competitions in Austin, as she has not lost a freestyle race yet this season. As the NCAA Swimmer of the Year for 2013, Cordes holds the American records for the 100y and 200y breaststroke, finishing with a time of 51.74 in the 100y and 1:48.68 in the 200y at the NCAA Championships last season. The junior is the clear favorite in the men’s breaststroke events. Cordes has outswam his competition by as much as three seconds so far this season. Smith, a 10-time All-American, should serve as a catalyst in the men’s relay events. The senior co-captain contributed to Arizona’s NCAA title in the 400y medley relay last season. With strengths in the freestyle and butterfly, Smith is a versatile weapon for Arizona. Perhaps the Wildcats’ most lethal swimmer competing in the invite, Brandon is a school record holder in the 200y backstroke (1:51.41) who also competes in distance freestyle and IM events. Brandon is already a two-time All-American and has only lost one race so far this year, the 200y freestyle, to teammate Geer in the team’s dual meet against UNLV in October. The Texas Invitational, which was called the USA Swimming Winter National Championships last year, will be held at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center.

of the tournament in their careers as Wildcats, so they are trying to get the young team members to focus before heading to San Diego. “We need to let them know how much work it’s going to take even just to get past the first round,” Kingdon said. It is Nicholson’s last year in Arizona, and her main goal is to get deep into the tournament. She said the team will do anything it can to defeat NMSU. Both players said they feel prepared to face NMSU because they are confident about playing a
team that is not part of the Pac-12 Conference. “That’s the nicest thing about playing in the Pac-12: As a team, we think that there is nothing we haven’t seen already,” Nicholson said. The team had problems communicating early during the season, but has remained united and aims to stay on the same page for the tournament. — Follow Rose Aly Valenzuela @RoseAlyVal
Talents emerge for Arizona BY EVAN ROSENFELD
The Daily Wildcat When junior Tyler Parmenter stepped onto the field for the first time as a freshman, he never thought he would end up becoming a pitcher for Arizona’s baseball team — but now he is one of the players to watch. The Yuma, Ariz., native arrived in Tucson as a shortstop, having just declined an offer to sign with the Tampa Bay Rays, who had chosen him with the 480th overall pick in the 15th round of the 2011 MLB First Year Players Draft right out of high school. Early in his first fall, he was asked to change positions for the first time and transitioned to an outfielder with a strong arm who dreamed of starting in right field. Although he had a solid start, he soon began to struggle and was unable to offensively produce. In a switch that revitalized a frustrated Parmenter, he was offered the chance to pitch, though he admitted he was not fond of the position.
“I didn’t like it at first, but I started to feel more comfortable over the summer and was soon throwing 95 mph,” Parmenter said. “I was able to hit that again over the fall and have thrown it three or four times since then. I feel a lot more confident with my pitches this year.” In addition to learning a new position, Parmenter was also forced to come up with a few breaking balls to complement his fiery fastball. “I’ve learned to throw a changeup and a curveball as well,” Parmenter said. “When the changeup is good, it will move away from the left-handed hitter, and when the curveball is on, it has a sharp 12-6 break.” Regardless of his success over the fall, Parmenter said he is aware that he will have to continue improving and performing well if he’d like to earn more innings in the spring. “There’s definitely some [higher] potential I expect myself to reach this season,” Parmenter said. “I still have to prove myself as we move into the spring, but it’s

PAC-12 POWER RANKINGS
UA finishes in lower half of Pac 8. Oregon State (6-6, 4-5)
BY LUKE DELLA
The Beavers fell just short of upsetting their rival on the road last week. Oregon State fans will not be satisfied with a six-win season, but considering how poor its defense was, it’s something to hang their hats on. The Beavers’ third-ranked passing offense will be an attractive choice for bowl bidders.
The Daily Wildcat
1. No. 7 Stanford (10-2, 7-2 Pac12 Conference) With a chance to repeat as Pac12 champion, the Cardinal hosts a tremendous defense with an offense that relies heavily on its rushing attack. Its Dec. 7 matchup with fellow defensive powerhouse ASU for the Pac-12 championship should be one of the best games of the year.
9. Washington State (6-6, 4-5)
The Cougars could have really benefited from a seventh win, but they lost to their rival Washington last week. While they may be bowleligible, there is a chance they won’t get invited to one, as this year there are more bowl-eligible schools than spots available.
2. No. 11 ASU (10-2, 8-1)
In last week’s win against Arizona, the Sun Devils proved that their defense is built to contain a strong rushing team. If they can force Stanford to pass the ball more, they should get the win. The Cardinal has struggled against good rush teams, racking up losses to Utah and USC. The conference championship game will be played in Tempe, Ariz.
3. No. 12 Oregon (10-2, 7-2)
The Ducks rebounded after their loss to Arizona with a home victory over their rival Oregon State. It wasn’t pretty, but Oregon got it done. Oregon has a few weeks before its bowl game to get its head on straight.
4. No. 18 UCLA (9-3, 6-3)
The up-and-down regular season for the Bruins ended on a high note, as they beat their crosstown rival USC convincingly last week, 35-14. UCLA
10. Utah (5-7, 2-7)

looking good at this point. “Last year, I didn’t see as many innings as I wanted, and things didn’t go my way. … I’m really looking forward to some more opportunities this season.” Junior catcher Jordan Berger is also stepping into the spotlight. After living in junior Riley Moore’s shadow for the past two seasons, Berger has finally proven himself enough offensively and defensively to make a serious run as Arizona’s next starting catcher. “I’ve had a really good fall, and since Riley [Moore] has been sidelined due to injury, I’ve pretty much played every game,” Berger said. “I see myself getting some starts this year, hopefully at catcher, but if not there, then definitely at DH.” As he made the most of his opportunities over this past fall and showed steady improvement in offensive and defensive statistics over his first two seasons, Berger will likely be under consideration for a consistent starting job. “I’m definitely expecting a big year from him,” Parmenter said. “I think he’ll get many more opportunities as a junior, and he has been really efficient with the ones he’s had. Last year, at DH, [Berger] got some at-bats and really came up big.” While a knee injury has sidelined Moore since the summer, Berger has been using
sexier USC job, the Huskies were left without a head coach and a number of assistants. Good luck.
7. Arizona (7-5, 4-5)
With the talent the Wildcats put out on the field every week, a sevenwin season is impressive. But a 58-21 loss to their rival to end the season was not.
that time to step up his game, training and conditioning over the summer and producing efficient results in his opportunities this fall. “It was definitely the best fall I’ve had, and I improved a lot,” Berger said. “Riley didn’t play at all over the fall, and now we have three [non-starting] catchers who are pretty good and only getting better, so it’s got to be motivating for him to come back and try to re-secure his spot.” Another player who teammates expect to have a breakout year is sophomore Cody Ramer. Last year, while the Simi Valley, Calif., native enjoyed more playing time than Parmenter and Berger, he compiled the lowest batting average of the three and only had 11 hits in 60 at-bats. When asked about the role Ramer is expected to play on this year’s team, both Berger and Parmenter were quick to look past their teammate’s offensive woes last season and speak of how valuable of an asset he could be. “I think Cody Ramer is definitely going to be a factor for us,” Berger explained. “He’s one of the best defensive players we have, and he can literally play almost every position: third base, second base, left, right, DH [to name a few]. He’s very athletic, really fast and he can swing it.”
Despite knowing that their season was not going to end with a bowl, the Utes played hard against Colorado last week.

Dance event to showcase students School’s final series to feature work choreographed by students enrolled in program and hand-selected by dance faculty BY JESSICA SCHRECKER
The Daily Wildcat
In its final series of the semester, the UA School of Dance is putting a special emphasis on student work, showcasing only performances by those in the program. “Seasonal Treasures — Student Spotlight” will feature strictly student work and student performers, creating a repertory unlike any other, said Doug Nielsen , director of Seasonal Treasures and a modern dance professor. “Sometimes, it’s the first dance they’ve ever choreographed, but it’s been in there all their lives just dying to come out,” Nielsen said. “Sometimes it’s personal, sometimes it’s about relationships and sometimes it’s more social.” The series features 13 pieces chosen from an audition of 35 numbers by students within the School of Dance. Students prepared their work and then submitted it for careful review by dance faculty members. Those who were selected were assigned a faculty adviser, but ultimately made all artistic decisions on their own. Nielsen said those chosen were selected based on their preparedness. “We try to choose dances that are really ready,” Nielsen said. “We choose the dances that are ready to go and then program them from that. … The faculty doesn’t choose a piece because we need a piece like that or a piece like this; it’s which ones are complete.” The performance is unlike any other that the dance school performs in that it offers multiple perspectives, Nielsen said. Rather than the point of view of a

the series, one of which also features him as a dancer. Coleman said it was an honor to earn a place in the Student Spotlight . “It was a huge surprise,” Coleman said. “I wasn’t going into it to get into the show. My goal going into this year was to finish one [piece]. … It’s really an honor.” Coleman’s first piece in the show is “MG Bytes,” which is performed by an all-male cast and designed to mimic the movements of Sonic the Hedgehog. Coleman’s second piece, “Spin The Sky,” features dance junior Kelsey Walsh in what will be her first solo performance with the School of Dance. “[Seasonal Treasures] does a great job of showing the talent of the dancers here,” Walsh said. “All these pieces are choreographed by us. … It showcases everyone’s love, ability and talent.” Along with her performance of Coleman’s piece, Walsh will also premiere choreography of her own with her number “Glow.” “I like to play with themes of light and dark and the powers of good and evil,” Walsh said. “It came from a really personal place. … It’s something that I keep close to my heart.” Performances will begin today at 7:30 p.m. at Stevie Eller Dance Theatre and will continue through Sunday. “I don’t think they’re making dances to please,” Nielsen said. “I think they’re making dances they need to make, that they really feel passionate about. It’s their voice.”
