UA FRESHMAN forward Aaron Gordon walks off the court with a beat up eye after helping beat UNLV 63-58 on Saturday in McKale Center. Arizona is expected to move to the No. 1 ranking.

Undefeated Wildcats could claim No. 1 ranking today BY MEGAN COGHLAN

The Daily Wildcat McKale Center erupted with the chant “number one” as the last seconds on the clock ran out to secure a 63-58 Arizona (9-0) win over UNLV (3-4) for the annual whiteout game. The sea of white that filled McKale Center did not seem to blind the Wildcats. “It was a little bright out there,”

freshman forward Rondae HollisJefferson said, laughing. “We’re not really worried about what type of atmosphere it’s going to be; we’re worried about how we’re going to play the game and how hard we’re working at practice so we know it’s going to translate into the game.” The last time Arizona was ranked No. 1, the top song on the Billboard 200 was “Chocolate Factory” by R. Kelly. If that doesn’t make you feel old enough, it was the same year the Pixar movie “Finding Nemo”

came out and Ruben Studdard was crowned the winner of “American Idol” over Clay Aiken. It was the week of March 10, 2003. Lute Olson was head coach, and Arizona finished the season with a loss to No. 2 Kansas in the West Regional Final by only three points. It was a year where future NBA players Channing Frye and Andre Iguodala combined to score 609 total points. With last week’s No. 1 Michigan State losing to North Carolina and No. 3 Kentucky falling to Baylor, the

No. 2 Wildcats should get the top spot when the polls come out Monday. “I think to be ranked number one is maybe the greatest compliment you could have,” head coach Sean Miller said. But being at the top of the polls comes with a new level of responsibility. Every opponent will try for an upset, and for a game that Arizona was expected to win by 16, according to the betting lines, UNLV’s fight proves that.

UA unveils giant Art class’ final telescope mirror projects come hot off press BY ETHAN MCSWEENEY

The Daily Wildcat


PATRICK MCCARTHY, GIANT MAGELLAN TELESCOPE project director, discusses some of the production processes involved in creating the third of the Giant Magellan Telescope’s seven mirrors at the Steward Observatory Mirror Lab on Sunday. The GMT is expected to be one of the largest telescopes in the world.


The Daily Wildcat Astronomers are one step closer to gaining a deeper understanding of the universe as UA scientists recently unveiled the third of seven mirrors for the Giant Magellan Telescope. The Steward Observatory Mirror Lab unveiled the mirror on Friday. The mirror will eventually become part of a

seven-mirror array, constructed in the Atacama desert in Chile. The GMT is expected to be one of the largest telescopes in the world. It will be used to study many different aspects of the universe, including planets in our own galaxy, the structures of other galaxies and the physics behind black holes, said Patrick McCarthy, project director for the GMT.


In a former Italian restaurant north of Speedway, UA students are using some old methods to produce their work. The Book Art and Letterpress Lab gives students the opportunity to work with printing presses, hand-mixed ink and other methods from the past in place of modern digital means, all for upper-division credit. Karen Zimmerman, an associate professor at the School of Art, manages the lab and teaches the class “Letterpress and the Multiple.” Zimmerman said she has always been interested in the process of printing as a graphic artist. The printing press combines typography and image as well as printing production. “I personally love the magic of printing, where you start with nothing and then the image appears on your paper through

your work,” Zimmerman said. “There’s something really magical about that process.” Inside the lab, printing presses from decades ago are spread out in a former campus eatery, Corleone’s, an Italian restaurant whose red carpet, silver floral wallpaper and mood lighting still provide the backdrop to students working away with this collection of antiquated machines. The majority of the equipment in the lab is donated, according to Zimmerman. Most of that donated equipment comes from the late Jack Sinclair, an artist from New Mexico, whose large donation in 2011 led to the opening of the lab. The oldest piece of equipment in the lab is a Midget Reliance hand press, a model originally produced around the 1820s, which is currently in the process of being restored, Zimmerman said. “The school is very lucky to have this equipment,”

Mucho Martinez, program director of KOFH Nogales and UA alumnus You used to work in Arizona Student Media? I did, for a brief time. I would say four or five months. When you were getting involved, wasn’t Tucson one of the top places for radio? In the ‘90s, it was like a renaissance of radio — like an entertainment revolution in Tucson. It was fantastic, and it bled into the early 2000s. So, when I got there, I worked at KAMP [Student] Radio. But cruising down the street, I found that there was a very interesting movement going on. A lot of colorful figures, very intelligent people, who have ambition and creative ideas. I was lucky enough to intern at the old Caliente 98.3 and work with people like Chico and Paco, and I started seeing this incredible movement on the streets for music, whether for hip-hop or current music. So, what was different? In the early ‘90s, you probably just heard KRQQ, which was not Clear Channel-owned at the time, and adult contemporary stations … [But there was a group

of ] basement guys, and I call them basement guys because they would be at their house and they would create mix tapes and pirate stations that would reach neighborhoods. One of the leaders of the movement is R-Dub! … These guys just started creating a movement on the streets and eventually they got an AM station. … From there, it started exploding, and all of a sudden, you started seeing radio wars. These were crazy radio wars; Power [1490 AM] started beefing with KRQQ, and then when Power became an FM station, they started going really hard at KRQQ, and then I remember Caliente 98.3 turned into Hot 98.3, which at that point was bought by Art Laboe. How crazy are we talking? This movement wasn’t dangerous. It wasn’t like we were shooting each other. It was airwave material, creativeness that went into shows and segments, and the people were loving it. The streets were just enamored with their radio at that time in Tucson.

“The most important thing about a telescope is really how much light it collects, so we do that with the large mirrors,� McCarthy said. “These mirrors are the largest in the world.� Made from 20 tons of pure borosilicate glass imported from Japan, GMT mirror number three was cast in August and has spent three months in a massive furnace that rotates, giving the surface of the mirror its concave shape, said John Hill , a casting scientist for the mirror lab. The newly cast reflector is 27 feet in diameter and features a unique honeycomb design on its underside. “We make [the mirrors] honeycombs because a thing this big is really thick and heavy if it’s made out of solid glass,� Hill said, adding that the design also adds rigid strength to the mirror. Another advantage of the honeycomb design is that it allows for air to circulate through the voids so the mirror’s temperature more closely matches that of the night air,



Zimmerman said. “There are not very many schools that have this much and it’s a fantastic resource for students to be able to print their own work.� Students in Zimmerman’s class are currently working on their final projects, which involve creating a series on any topic, according to Zimmerman. These topics range from a collection of local wildlife to League of Legends playing cards. Sebastian Campos, a studio art senior, is seeking to educate others in Mexican slang terms borrowed from the English language through a matching game with playing cards he will produce in the lab for his final project. “For example, people say ‘cereal,’ but in some certain areas [in Mexico], this slang has taken over and everybody refers to cereal as Corn Flakes, no matter what kind of cereal it is,� said Campos.

Along with the economic boost that the research and development of such a technology brings to the community and the state, Hart said, the university’s partnership with the GMT project will serve to enhance the UA’s burgeoning reputation as a hotbed for astronomy. “This is the only place in the world where you can have a mirror built like this,� Hart said. “When we finish this project, we will guarantee our number one position in the space sciences for 50 years to come.

Compost services should be expanded BY NICK HAVEY The Daily Wildcat


he UA prides itself on sustainability, but it’s not exploring all the avenues it could. Arizona State University is rolling out a new sustainability initiative called Zero Waste, but the UA seems stuck. Our problem? Our composting program isn’t in full swing. Compost Cats, a Students for Sustainability internship program created in 2011, actively works to educate students, faculty and the surrounding Tucson community about the importance of composting waste. Currently, composting is available in Cactus Grill, Sabor, Cellar Bistro and Pangea with signs that tell visitors which materials are compostable and which are not. Composting is “turning garbage into gardens,” according to Compost Cat James Garlant. The process is entirely due to microbial breakdown of organic material. The costs incurred are only the costs of receptacles and collection, as opposed to mainstream recycling and landfill disposal of waste. This kind of initiative should be expanded to highly trafficked areas of campus that produce large amounts of waste — namely, residence halls. Currently, the only residence hall that has composting as an option is La Aldea Graduate Residence Hall. With their current locations, Compost Cats estimate 11 tons of compostable waste are collected each week to be treated and converted into nutrient-rich compost that will be used in the UA’s Community Garden and donated to local nonprofits like Native Seeds SEARCH. This number may seem large, but it’s actually quite small in comparison to the 15 tons of waste at one football game in Sun Devil Stadium. The UA has already taken steps in terms of utilizing mostly biodegradable containers at the Arizona Student Unions and having recycling widely available on campus, but composting can greatly reduce overall waste in addition to these other programs. With landfill waste disposal being one of the most costly yet prominent forms of waste disposal used worldwide — according to the Environmental Protection Agency, a municipal landfill in Kentucky runs at about $75,000 an acre — it is important to look to the future to avoid unnecessary creation of landfills. Valuable space is being used to create these landfills that could otherwise be used for land conservancy or nature preserves. By adding composting as an option campus-wide, especially within the residence halls, the massive quantity of waste that the university produces could be reduced and repurposed into something that is beneficial to the community and the university. Stephanie Choi, a freshman Eco-rep for the Árbol de la Vida Residence Hall, is an avid composter. “I save my tea bags and whatever else I can compost from my room and take them to the composting stations,” she said. “It may be a hassle, but I think it’s a really important way to reduce waste and do my part.” Choi also said she’d like to see composting expand into the residence halls, something that is already being done by smaller colleges like Reed, Wesleyan and Oberlin. Composting is a relatively inexpensive method to vastly reduce waste and is something the Environmental Protection Agency recommends any large institution do to reduce its waste and carbon footprint. With a population of just fewer than 7,000, residence halls are definitely producing enough compostable waste to make it a viable option. — Nick Havey is a sophomore studying pre-physiology and Spanish.

Plastic bags harm local fauna BY KALLI RICKA WOLF

The Daily Wildcat


alk down almost any street in Tucson and you’re bound to see plastic grocery bags in the sewer drains, stuck in bushes and cactuses. Our windy environment makes for a storm of plastic bags being picked up and blown around, which makes them an eyesore and a threat to our desert ecosystem. Before the problem gets more out of hand, the city ought to place a tax or ban on plastic bags. More than one trillion plastic bags are used worldwide annually, according to, but only 1 percent of them are recycled. “If you’ve never looked at this issue before, you could be astounded and overwhelmed,” said Leif Abrell, a scientist who works in the Arizona Laboratory for Emerging Contaminants at the UA. “It’s insane how much material is out there, and there are different ways that this is a problem for our environment.” Abrell measures trace amounts of organic chemicals found in the environment, particularly through soil and water samples. Through his research, he has found that plastics seep their way into ecosystems and are a potential threat to the natural balance. The plastic itself, however, isn’t the only problem. As it breaks down, it releases chemicals, like flame retardants, antimicrobials and plasticizers, into the environment. This is damaging to the soil, water, plants and animals that consume them. Jon Chorover, the head of the UA Department of Soil, Water and Environmental Science, is a

proponent of eliminating the plastic bags. “Plastic waste is a major landfill component and extensive plastic use in everyday materials means that [plastic] make its way into other environmental compartments,” he said. A large portion of wasted plastic bags end up in the ocean, where they are the second-most common type of waste found after cigarette butts; every square mile of ocean has about 46,000 pieces of plastic floating on its surface, according to “What’s astounding to me is that on some beaches around the world, you can scoop up a cup of sand and a large proportion of the grains are not actually sand,” Abrell said. “They’re pieces of plastic that are broken down to the same sized pieces as the grains of sand.” An obvious solution to reducing the negative effects of plastic bags may be to recycle them, but even if they are taken to recycling plants or landfills, they may cause waste issues. The light and flexible materials can be pulled into machinery parts, clogging the machine and causing maintenance problems. Disposing of them in a landfill is not conducive either because plastics take roughly 1,000 years to decompose, and if they’re taken to the Tucson landfill, the process could take even longer, Abrell said. “The Tucson landfill is deficient in moisture, so the breakdown process lasts a lot longer than landfills in the Northeast or West where there’s more moisture,” Abrell said. Many U.S. cities in California, North Carolina, Washington and Oregon have recognized these problems and implemented bans or taxes on the bags. Washington, D.C.’s disposable bag fee, enacted in 2010, has reduced plastic bag usage from 22.5 million to just 3 million bags monthly. In nearby Bisbee, Ariz., starting on Earth Day

2014, retail locations will ban plastic bags and charge a minimum of a nickel per paper bag — persuading shoppers to bring their own. Places such as England, New Delhi and South Australia are also eliminating plastic bags through bans and taxes. When China enacted a ban on plastic bags, it saved 1.6 million tons of petroleum that would have been used for production, according to Worldwatch reports. In March, the Tucson City Council passed an ordinance to regulate and reduce the nearly 182 million plastic bags distributed each year in metropolitan Tucson. Under Ordinance No. 11056, Tucson retailers must count the number of plastic bags distributed per customer, weigh the amount of bags recycled, and report their findings to the city. Because there is no “goal” for the mandate as far as a percentage reduction or a specific time frame to do so, there have been no clear results since the ordinance was enacted. However, the ordinance has brought the issue into the spotlight, and now it’s time to take concrete action. Tucson’s issues with plastic bags, coupled with educated people who have the power to make a difference in the near future, make the city a perfect candidate to enact a plastic bag ban or tax. We have the opportunity to really make a difference in something that impacts every consumer, and it starts with recognizing the problem and utilizing the solution: Eliminate the plastic bags. Tucson has started the conversation — now it’s time to take action.

Pulse of the Pac Columnists from around the Pac-12 discuss Blockbuster, study methods, religious freedom and grants for DREAMers “Netflix and Redbox may have movies, but they’ll never be Blockbusters” by Andrea Harvey Sure, Redbox and Netflix are relatively cheap and horribly convenient, but there was something special about having all your options in one store, ready for you to watch as soon as you get home. No mail involved, no 28-day wait before it gets to Redbox and no separate trip to the grocery store for your movie snacks. Little did I know that nearly 10 years later, Blockbuster would be announcing the closing of all its locations in the United States. Just last weekend I walked past the Blockbuster on 18th Avenue and Willamette Street in Eugene and saw that it was shut down. It makes me sad. “The obvious reason for all this is the Internet. Blockbuster’s demise, for one, was inextricably linked to the success of Netflix,” said James Surowiecki in the New Yorker in October 2010, the year Blockbuster filed for bankruptcy.

“People too different for universal study method” by Cassie Ruud I remember when I was living in the dorms and “Quiet Hours” came into effect during dead week and finals week. I liked the idea initially — an allotted amount of time in which everyone respected that everyone else was going to be busy and needed to focus. But after the first few days, a few other floor members and I started to lose our minds. People have different studying styles. One is no better than the rest, and there is no one-size-fits-all deal. You have to pick the options you know are going to work for you. At this point in the college game, I bet you have some ideas about what those are. So if you have to lock yourself alone in a room, talk to yourself, sing along to your Pandora Christmas station, watch TV or have it pindrop silent, do what works for you and respect others who might differ in study habits.

“Religious freedom is what I’m getting for Christmas” by Rebecca Simpson During this time every year, we are all privy to the “War on Christmas” that seems just on the horizon. Fox News even has its own section about this tyranny where viewers can submit their stories of challenges to religious freedoms. Attempts to make schools and other public places more secular in nature are seen as stifling Christians and their ability to celebrate. This is one more example of those who refuse to accept or tolerate the beliefs of others demanding that their own intolerant beliefs be respected. Any perception of infringement, true or not, is labeled as denying religious freedom — even if that religious freedom means treading on the toes of everyone else. There is no “creeping Sharia,” and the idea that one group is fine to practice and have universal public accommodation for their beliefs, while another religious group represents an attack on everything we hold dear, is outrageous.

“Initiative will further closing of opportunity gap” by Judy K. Sakaki The road from exclusion towards equity has been a long one. And even though California DREAM Act students are now eligible for the same grant and scholarship assistance as documented Californians, Dreamers still face significant challenges. They lack access to low interest student loans and work-study opportunities that federal funding makes available, which makes it harder to cover the “self-help” component of financial aid packages. They also face additional challenges associated with their undocumented status that impact their retention, success and graduation. The $5 million that UC President Janet Napolitano has committed will help undocumented students address some of these remaining challenges. The University of California is dedicated to providing a worldclass education to all eligible students, regardless of their background or immigration status.

A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for minor in possession in body outside of Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall on Nov. 23 at 11:35 p.m. Two UAPD officers saw a UA student laying on the sidewalk by Graham-Greenlee surrounded by about 10 people, who dispersed when the officers approached. The student was semiconscious, had vomited on herself and smelled like alcohol. Tucson Fire Department met the officers at the scene. The student had bloodshot eyes and her speech was slurred. She told officers she had been drinking vodka by herself in her dorm. She said she didn’t need assistance, but she wasn’t able to stand up by herself. TFD determined she needed further medical attention and she was taken to the University of Arizona Medical Center.

Human fountain

A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for minor in possession of alcohol in Graham-Greenlee on Nov. 24 at around 1:10 a.m. Two UAPD officers responded to a report of a drunk student in a hallway. The student was found hovering over a drinking fountain where he had been vomiting. The student was unsteady on his feet and had bloodshot, watery eyes. The student’s friend told officers the student had been drinking vodka that night at an off-campus party. The student’s friend took him to his dorm and his roommate said he would be home the rest of the night. The student was assigned to complete a diversion program through the Dean of Students Office.

Honesty is the best policy

A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia on Nov. 26 at 11:01 p.m. A UAPD officer met with a resident assistant in KaibabHuachuca Residence Hall in reference to a smell of marijuana coming from one of the dorm rooms, the resident of the room however, was in another room across the hall. The officer found the student and asked to speak with her in her room. The student asked the officer if being honest would benefit her before agreeing to let the officer into her room. Once inside her room, the student handed the officer a small Ziploc bag with gold skulls that had marijuana inside. The student said she buys marijuana from another student on campus and regularly smokes it with her friend, adding that she usually replaces the tobacco in Swisher Sweets cigars with marijuana. She said there weren’t any other drug-related items in the room, but the officer found a small cigar that looked like it had marijuana in it. Because the student was 17 years old, the officer contacted her father. The student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office and the bag of marijuana and the cigar were submitted to UAPD evidence.

WinterFest brings ice skating to UA Mall BY alison dorf

The Daily Wildcat

Students will get the chance to ice skate into finals week on the UA Mall Wednesday evening as part of an annual holiday-themed event. Hosted by the Wildcat Events Board, WinterFest will include an ice skating rink, snow flurries, an opportunity to decorate a gingerbread house and a performance by Amplified Acapella, the newest co-ed a cappella group on campus, among other winter-related activities. “You just feel like you’re in a little winter wonderland,” said Kayla Fiore, a general studies sophomore and coordinator of the event. “It really makes you get into the holiday spirit.” Wednesday also marks dead day eve, offering students a chance to de-stress before finals begin next week. “It’s kind of stressful with finals and everything going on around school, especially right now,” Fiore said. “[The event is] just to have like one last fun thing to do before we all go back home and get us in the holiday spirit before we go back and celebrate with our families.” The ice skating rink is made of synthetic ice and is provided by BH Skating Parks International. To install the rink, synthetic

ice sheets made of a non-toxic, recyclable polymer compound are hammered together like giant puzzle pieces, according to the company’s website. A non-toxic glide enhancer is sprayed onto the surface of the ice to reduce the friction created by a skaters’ blades. Unlike a typical ice skating rink, the rink is not refrigerated. It is also 10 to 15 percent slower than a normal rink, and feels more like skating on a frozen pond than an actual rink. The Wildcat Events Board will provide free skates for students. While students wait for their turn on the ice, they can participate in a range of activities, including a snowmanmaking contest using marshmallows, a basketball free-throw machine, hot cocoa and s’mores and decorating gingerbread houses. Pauline Lam, a pre-business sophomore and an arts director for the Wildcat Events Board is in charge of the gingerbread house activities. The activity was a hit for students last year, prompting its return this year, she said, adding the fact that the event is on campus and is free gives students easy access to join the festivities. “They don’t have to drive far and pay lots of money to do something fun,” Lam said. When the event began last year, around 400 students attended, a number Fiore said she hopes doubles this year. Amplified Acapella will perform holiday

songs such as “Let It Snow” and “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Sean McCann, a music sophomore and director of Amplified Acapella, said it was exciting to take the time to learn some holiday songs and do something different for the group. It’s also important to have events such as WinterFest on dead day eve because although it’s so close to finals week, students shouldn’t have to be constantly stressed, McCann said. “I think WinterFest is a very good break to hang out with friends,” McCann said, “watch a performance, have a couple things to do

UA headed to Cajun Country Wildcats accept invitation to AdvoCare V100 Bowl in Louisiana to play Boston College on Dec. 31, setting up marquee running back match-up BY LUKE DELLA

Arizona will play in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl in Shreveport, La., against Boston College on Dec. 31 at 10:30 a.m. MST. “It’s a great opponent, and they got one of the best players in the country in their tail back,” Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez said. The bowl game will feature two of the nation’s best running backs. Ka’Deem Carey is currently fifth in the country with 1,716 total rushing yards. Boston College’s Andre Williams leads the nation with 2,102 rushing yards. Carey led the nation last season in rushing yards. “It’s definitely a pride thing,” Carey said of holding the rushing yard title. “I of course respect [Williams], but I want to go out there on the field and beat him and help my team win the game.” Both Carey and Williams are finalists for the Doak Walker Award, which is given to the best running back. Williams and Carey are first and second, respectively, in rushing yards per game. Last year in the New Mexico Bowl, Carey went up against Stefphon Jefferson of Nevada, who was second in the nation in rushing that year. The Wildcats won that game 49-48. “It’s been a honor, and it’s going to be awesome to play against another great running back,” Carey said. “I’ve watched [Williams] a few times. He’s a physical runner like me.” The AdvoCare V100 Bowl was formerly known as the Independence

BOWL GAME The AdvoCare V100 Bowl was known as the Independence Bowl until this season. RYAN REVOCK/THE DAILY WILDCAT

UA JUNIOR running back Ka’Deem Carey drags ASU defenders down field during the Territorial Cup on Saturday, Nov. 30. Carey, second in the NCAA in rushing, and Boston College running back Andre Williams, the nation’s leading rusher, headline the AdvoCare V100 Bowl.

Bowl as its inaugural season was in 1976, the United States’ bicentennial year. It is played at Independence Stadium and currently has tie-ins with the Southeastern Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference, but due to an overflow of bowl-eligible schools, this season Arizona was substituted for an SEC school. Oregon was the last school from the Pac-12 Conference to play in the bowl game. The Ducks lost to Wake Forest 39-35 in the 1992 Independence Bowl. Last season, Ohio University defeated Louisiana-Monroe 45-14 in the bowl game. Arizona corner back Jonathan McKnight is the only player on the

Wildcats’ roster from Louisiana. “I have never been to Louisiana,” senior receiver Terrence Miller said. “I have no clue what to expect, but I’m really excited.” From 1997-98, Rodriguez was the offensive coordinator at Tulane University in New Orleans. He said he is excited to go back to a former recruiting area. As for Boston College, the Wildcats have never played against the Eagles and haven’t played a school from the ACC since 1995. “We haven’t watched film on them yet,” Arizona senior linebacker Jake Fischer said. “But I’ve seen their running back, and he’s impressive.” This will also be Boston College’s

first trip to the AdvoCare V100 Bowl. The Wildcats are hoping to have 12 to 13 practices on campus before they fly to Shreveport a couple of days prior to the bowl game. Rodriguez said the first couple of practices are more like easy spring practices but get more intense as the game gets closer. “It’s a very respectable bowl game,” Rodriguez said of the AdvoCare V100 Bowl. “It’s a neat venue. The challenge is to go down there and win. If we want to have a chance to win, we have to stop the run and we have to run the ball; that’s who we are right now.” — Follow Luke Della @LukeDella


Wildcats eliminated in second round of NCAAs BY ROSE ALY VALENZUELA

SAN FRANCISCO DOWNS SEATTLE San Francisco 49ers 19 Seattle Seahawks 17

The Daily Wildcat

The Arizona indoor volleyball team won its first match of the NCAA tournament since 2005, sweeping New Mexico State (22-11) on Friday (25-14, 25-23, 25-19) — to its 27th NCAA tournament match all-time — but was eliminated on Saturday night. Arizona (21-13) dropped the second match to No. 9-seed San Diego (26-3) in three sets (25-14, 25-19, 2522) , allowing the Toreros to be part of the Sweet Sixteen in Lincoln, Neb. “I think it was a tough battleship for us,” head coach Dave Rubio said. Junior outside hitter Madi Kingdon led Arizona’s offense versus San Diego with a match-high 15 kills for the night. Kingdon also recorded a teamhigh 12 digs, earning her 16th double-double of the season. She finished the season with 508 kills. She is now sixth on the school’s all-time kills list with 1,312 kills for her career, with one season left in Arizona. Freshman setter Penina Snuka led the Pac-12 Conference with 19 doubledoubles this season . In her last match played as a Wildcat, senior Candace Nicholson finished with 10 digs. Nicholson recorded 512 digs on the season, being the only player in school history to record 500 digs in one season . She finished her career with 1,642 digs. The first set didn’t go well for Arizona offensively. The Wildcats only hit .176 while San Diego hit .536. The Toreros were also efficient in the second set, hitting .356 with an aggressive defense not letting Arizona do much throughout the set. The Wildcats used their first timeout when San Diego held the 5-1 lead . Arizona

tried to battle but fell short. The last set was the closest for Arizona to have the chance to get back into the match, but San Diego’s offense was strong and finished hitting .273. More time to prepare was something Rubio said they needed. Only one hour practicing on the court before the second match, left him frustrated. Although the season didn’t end the way he wanted, Rubio said he was pleased with what the team accomplished from last season. “We accomplished a lot with this group, getting those 21 wins especially,” Rubio said. Two Wildcats wore the Arizona jerseys for the last time ever: Nicholson and outside hitter Shaquillah Torres. With only two players finishing their career in Arizona, the starting lineup for next season won’t change much from this year’s starting line-up. “I feel confident about

We accomplished a lot with this group, getting those 21 wins especially.

— Dave Rubio, head coach


The Independence Bowl debuted in the bicentennial year of 1976. The Pac-12 is 2-1 in the bowl. Shreveport is in northwest Louisiana.

FAST FACTS [EX] WILDCAT WATCH Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles finally saw his streak without an interception end on Sunday in the snow. Foles had 19 touchdowns and no picks going into week 14. Foles was 11-for-22 for 179 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles’ 34-20 win.



The Runnin’ Rebels shot 80 percent from the free throw line compared to Arizona’s 50 percent. They kept close numbers in other areas, shooting a total 46 percent compared to the Wildcats’ 42 percent. UNLV’s Bryce DejeanJones led the team with 16 points, shooting six for 16. “UNLV is a great team that is very wellcoached, and they came in here and played really well and nearly came out with the victory. We have to take every game like we’re playing a Duke,” junior guard T.J. McConnell said. McConnell finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and six assists. With a 2012-13 season of close wins and nerve-racking games, Arizona was often referred to as the “Cardiac Cats.” So far this season, the Wildcats have coasted by with high leads, including one over Fairleigh Dickinson by 50 points. A four-point win over Drexel was the second-closest Wildcats victory this season. But with the lead changing a total of 18 times, it looked like the “Cardiac Cats” had returned to McKale Center, which was electric with the energy of a close game. The fan and media favorite freshman forward Aaron Gordon did not have his best performance, only scoring four points. After being accidentally elbowed in the face by fellow teammate Brandon Ashley, Gordon was escorted off the court with a bleeding face. He came back out with a swollen eye and a BandAid and held up one finger, symbolizing the No. 1 spot he was about to help guide his team to; he finished the game with eight rebounds. “He’s a warrior,” Miller said. “He’s one of the number of guys who maybe didn’t have as good of an offensive night as he usually does, but this was a high level game.” The Wildcats will take the ranking with satisfaction, but Miller said he knows it does not mean Arizona won a championship or that the season is over. “I think it reflects the quality of our program, the incredible atmosphere that we have at McKale, the great teams in the past, players of the past and certainly this year’s team,” Miller said.

Swimming and diving

Wildcats enjoy lucrative UT trip BY Nicole Cousins

The Daily Wildcat Arizona’s Kevin Cordes drowned out his competition at the Texas Invitational in Austin last weekend. The 6-foot-5 breaststroker posted final times of 50.70 and 1:49.38 in the 100-yard and 200y breaststroke, qualifying for the NCAA Championships in both events and setting an American record in the 100y breaststroke. Cordes, a junior, was the clear winner in both instances, outswimming his opponents by two seconds in the 100y breaststroke and more than six seconds in the 200y event. Arizona teammates claimed second in both events, with seniors Kevin Steel (100y) and Sam Rowan (200y) finishing behind Cordes. Sophomore Bonnie Brandon broke her own school record in the 200y backstroke, finishing the event in 1:50.70, almost a second faster than her previous record of 1:51.41. Her time was more than good enough to qualify for the NCAA Championships. The Colorado native also won the 200y freestyle during the three day

invitational, an event where teammate Margo Geer placed fifth. Overall, the Wildcats qualified for the NCAA Championships in 10 individual events, solidifying the opportunity for swimmers like Geer, senior Giles Smith and senior Mitchell Friedemann to return to Austin in March. Arizona’s success began on Thursday when Smith, a senior, qualified for the NCAA Championships in the preliminary round of the 100y butterfly. He later won the event with 44.73 seconds, almost two seconds ahead of sophomore teammate Andrew Porter, who finished second. Smith also swam the third leg of the first place, NCAA-qualifying 400y relay, recording a time of 3:03.73 with the help of Friedemann, Cordes and junior Brian Stevens. Friedemann contributed to the UA’s 14 event wins with a 46.01 performance in the 100y backstroke, also qualifying for the national championships. Sophomore teammate Michael Meyer snatched first in the 100y and 200y IM events. Helping Brandon lead the Arizona women, Geer continued her overall winning season performances by

Short-handed ASU dominates Arizona BY Joey putrelo

The Daily Wildcat Arizona hockey heads to winter break with a bitter taste in its mouth after being swept in its own building by ASU over the weekend, outscored a total 20-6. With head coach Sean Hogan away at the Winter World University Games, the No. 13 Wildcats (10-12-0) extended their winless streak to the No. 1 Sun Devils (23-0-0) to 36 games. Friday night, Arizona jumped out to a 3-1 lead before ultimately falling in a hard fought 7-4 loss. The following night was the most forgettable of the season after ASU erased a 2-1 second period deficit by scoring 12 unanswered goals to head home with a 13-2 victory and the series sweep. “I kind of failed them — the entire coaching staff and myself with keeping [the Wildcats]

We were really pumped up before they have one of the quickest releases in the these games, and that’s what really got me into league,” Wildcats sophomore defenseman Nick it.”

Freshman Garrett Patrick started between the pipes for the Wildcats Friday, and senior Steven Sisler got the nod the next night for the first time since Nov. 1 when he injured his groin. However, it was a disappointing return for Sisler as he was pulled for Patrick in the second period after giving up the seventh goal of the contest. Patrick struggled to find his groove again, surrendering another six goals that night. “No one suffered any serious injuries this weekend; I would say it was just their egos,” Dougall said. Arizona now has winter break to recollect itself, returning to the ice for a non-ACHA matchup in the Tucson Convention Center against York of the Canadian Interuniversity Sport league on Jan. 3, 2014.

answers to your ques�ons about sex and rela�onships Stress reduction is one of the leading reasons Americans, particularly men, say they have sex. Source: WebMD


My boyfriend wants to try anal but I’m afraid. What can I do to prepare?

A. Healthy relationships involve negotiation. It’s important to ask yourself if you are comfortable trying something that makes you afraid. Communicating with your partner about your (dis)comfort level can help reduce feelings of anxiety. If you choose to engage in anal sex, here are a few tips: Use a lot of lube and move at a slow pace to decrease both friction and discomfort for you. Since the anus is not very elastic, there are lubricants made especially for anal sex. These anal lubes can numb or desensitize the rectum, and tend to be thicker than other lubricants. Experiment with different types and brands to determine which works best for you. Take a soapy shower together before sex to help both of you feel more clean and comfortable. After anal sex, use a fresh condom if you follow up with oral or vaginal sex. The anus contains fecal matter and bacteria, which are harmless in the anus, but can

cause infections in the urethral opening, vagina, or mouth. For example, urinary tract infections (UTIs) can develop when fecal matter enters the urethra. Anal sex, in and of itself, does not cause disease, but is considered high risk for transmitting HIV and Hepatitis B if either partner is infected. The lining of the anus is thin, and with the friction from intercourse it may tear and bleed, increasing risk of disease transmission. Use a condom every time, from start to finish, to decrease your risk of infection. Condoms and lubricant are available for purchase at local stores and pharmacies. The UA Campus Health Service Pharmacy carries several brands of both. You can even buy 100 condoms for $14.99. Free condoms are available at Free Condom Friday in Health Promotion and Preventive Services every Friday from 12-2pm. Guest Columnist: Stephanie R. Smith, Public Health Senior

Fraternity offers cuddles amid final studies BY Jessica Schrecker The Daily Wildcat

To help counter stress over finals and promote community involvement, 16 puppies will take over the UA Mall today. Alpha Kappa Psi, a coed business fraternity, has paired up with the Humane Society of Southern Arizona and Paradise Bakery to provide students with their philanthropic event, Coffee and a Cuddle. The event will bring puppies from the Humane Society to the mall while Paradise Bakery will supply the coffee. “There’s nothing people love more than puppies and babies,” said Stephanie Ho, a marketing junior and fraternity member. “Babies were out of the question.” The fraternity consists of approximately 100 members and focuses on professionalism philanthropy and getting involved with various aspects of the community, Ho said. Their hope with this event, she added, is to continue their relationship with the Humane Society and expose the business to the UA campus community. “Finals week is really stressful, it’s cold outside and there’s going to be puppies,” Ho said. “It’s a good opportunity to get to know our chapter, talk to all the brothers and meet more people.” Alpha Kappa Psi was created by the pledge class of 2015 and has since continued as part of the fraternity’s service to the community. Members hope to not only help the animals, but also reduce the stress of the campus community, said Lyndsey Edmonds, a public relations committee member and communications junior. “Giving time, attention and any donation we can to these animals in need is the least we could do,” Edmonds said. “Being able to do that while giving something to reduce the stress of campus community is an added bonus.” Coffee and a Cuddle premiered last year when group member Jason Kiesl wanted to create a philanthropy event that would directly impact students at UA.

Members of the Alpha Kapp Psi coed fraternity Stephanie Ho, Mike Vicidomini, Jason Kiesel, Rachel Heob and Lyndsey Edmonds play with Marlie, a dog adopted from the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, on the UA Mall on Sunday. The fraternity’s event on Monday will offer free coffee and dogs for petting to relieve stress from finals.

“During finals, students are very stressed out, and what better way to de-stress than grabbing a cup of coffee and cuddling with a puppy?” said Michael Vicidomini, vice president of philanthropy and an accounting junior. The fraternity will donate all funds to the Humane Society. “We hope to expand awareness for both our organization and the Humane Society of Southern Arizona by making Coffee

and a Cuddle a recurring and well-known event,” Edmonds said. “To us, it’s about branding this event so that we can gain a larger audience and raise more money for such a fantastic local nonprofit in the future.” — Follow Arts reporter Jessica Schrecker @JKSchrecker

Despite hype overload, ‘Anchorman 2’ seems promising BY alex guyton

The Daily Wildcat

The marketing team behind “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” is on the warpath. This is not some mediamarketing blitz, even if you’re sending all of the safeties. This is a burgundy-suited General Sherman marching across America with a scorchedearth policy of scotch and jazz flute. You will know this movie exists, even if you live under a rock. Ron Burgundy will come to your rock, and he will flip it over and force you to behold his impeccable fashion sense and facial hair. Will Ferrell has taken his character and news reporting abilities to a television screen near you. As Burgundy, dressed to the nines, he interviewed Peyton Manning on ESPN.

When the conversation inevitably turned to mustaches, Burgundy commented that when Peyton’s younger brother, Eli, tried to grow facial hair, it looked like “his upper lip was caked in a mixture of liquid dog crap and cocaine.” He reported the nightly news in Minot, North Dakota on KXNews alongside regular anchor Amber Schatz. He will get you nationally. He will get you locally. You cannot hide. He’s been spotted coming out of a Milford, Conn., diner with your balanced breakfast of a box of doughnuts and a 40. He’s not one to deny the rest of the world his myriad of talents, though, as he graced our neighbors to the north when he participated in the Olympic trials for curling in Winnipeg. However, Burgundy is not the only member of the illustrious Channel 4 news team. Steve

Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner return as Brick, Brian and Champ, respectively. Rudd, who recently starred in indie film “Prince Avalanche,” said the aspect of the first “Anchorman” that drew him to his role was the film’s indie feel, and the second film, despite the massive hype and attention, has not lost that feeling. “It felt like a very small kind of quirky comedy that we thought was funny that did not seem particularly commercial,” Rudd said during a conference call with media in October. “And I think that spirit still existed this time around even though there were more eyes on us.” Personally, I’ve found the trailers hit-and-miss. The first trailer didn’t really strike a chord with me, but the second trailer elicited much more laughs. Carell, however, said that the

trailer does not even scratch the surface of the film. “You know, you look at the trailer and you think, ‘Wow … They put everything in that they could, and that’s the entire movie,” he said. “But there’s so much more than is in the trailer and funnier.” So, what to make of all of this buzz — all of this marketing? Sometimes, when movies blanket the country, it’s to create such a huge buzz for the opening weekend to make up for potential negative word-of-mouth that will infect the following weekend box office takings. Is all of this a guise to mask a potential bomb? I don’t think this will be the case, and “Anchorman 2” will follow in the dress-shoed footsteps of the original. — Follow Arts reporter Alex Guyton @TDWildcatFilm
