The Daily Wildcat Monday marked the beginning of Spring 2014 Fraternity Recruitment for the 18 fraternities on campus. The week began with open houses meant to allow active members to get to know potential frat brothers, leading up to invite-only events that could see some potential candidates’ weeks ending early. To participate in Rush Week, students must have a minimum GPA of at least 2.50 if they’re taking 12 units, and they should register for rush by Jan. 30. If students register on the last day, an additional $10 late fee is added to the original $40 cost. Adam Geyer, pre-neuroscience sophomore and president of the Interfraternity Council, said he and the council put a lot of work into REBECCA NOBLE/THE DAILY WILDCAT preparing for recruitment week.

The Wolf from “The Wolf of Wall Street” has nothing on UA student Saleiha MayerMarks. Mayer-Marks, a finance and economics junior, earned an internship in New York City this summer at Morgan Stanley. The 10-week internship was made possible by her time working with Sponsors for Educational Opportunity. Mayer-Marks said she believes SEO has been the biggest factor in her success so far.

A recent study has found possible carcinogens in sodas, prompting the Food and Drug Administration to take a closer look at the chemicals used to make these drinks. The study, conducted by Consumer Reports, found small amounts of a carcinogen in sodas such as Coca-Cola, Diet Coke and Coke Zero, and found larger amounts in some Pepsi products like Pepsi One. The study compared Pepsi One samples, among others, from last year to samples purchased this December, both originating from New York. The results showed that levels of the carcinogen 4-methylimidazole decreased over the past year in Pepsi One, going from 195 mcg per 12-ounce serving to 161 mcg per

cookie flavors on demand. Mayer-Marks said this is the step that motivated her to become an entrepreneur in the financial world. Upon attending the UA and being accepted into Eller College of Management, MayerMarks already owned 11 shares of stock in businesses such as Netflix, Apple and Biotech. One professor Mayer-Marks credits with her growing success is Kim Marchesseault, a lecturer for the business communications program at Eller. Mayer-Marks said Marchesseault was the professor who taught her how to successfully present ideas to the general public. Marchesseault said over the course of the semester, Mayer-Marks gradually gained confidence and learned how to work in teams in her business communications class. “I constantly encouraged Saleiha to relax and smile during her presentations,” Marchesseault said. “Saleiha is now able to present with ease and connect with the audience in many situations.” Lin Cheng, an assistant professor of accounting, said Mayer-Marks is passionate about her studies. “[Saleiha] is very dedicated and hardworking based on my observations through group projects in the class,” Cheng said. Recently Mayer-Marks traveled with her investment club to New York City to tour nine firms on Wall Street, an experience that led to her receiving an internship with Morgan Stanley this upcoming summer. Mayer-Marks also had the chance to meet Karl Eller, the namesake of the Eller College of Management, and he gave her advice and insight from his past experiences in the finance industry. Mayer-Marks said she hopes to get a full-time offer from Morgan Stanley after her 10-week summer internship. — Follow Madison Brodsky @BrodskyMadison

Obama enters sixth year mcclatchy tribune
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Tuesday followed a familiar script for presidents entering their sixth year, as he tried to revive his waning political clout while shaping his legacy. Obama delivered his State of the Union address to an American public, increasingly skeptical that he can help ease their economic pain. His influence on Capitol Hill, while never robust, has all but vanished. Obama’s pitch was a plea for a more sound, more equitable economy. Corporations prosper, he said, yet “inequality has deepened.” He urged civility and common purpose. “I believe this can be a breakthrough year for America. After five years of grit and determined effort, the United States is better positioned for the 21st century than any other nation on Earth,” Obama said. But he also got tough: If Congress won’t act, he said, he will. “So, wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do,” Obama pledged. Obama announced executive action to raise the minimum wage for people working on new federal contracts to $10.10. Congress would likely not have agreed. Obama’s pitch Tuesday was a plea to finish the job, a standard State of the Union device at this stage of a presidency. History strongly suggests Obama’s fate is hard to predict and could even move his way. He could rebound, as Reagan and Clinton did. The Syrian conflict could be resolved with American help. The economy could boom. Obamacare could prove popular — and the president emphasized that he’s hardly about to stop touting that cause.

“I don’t expect to convince my Republican friends on the merits of this law. But I know that the American people aren’t interested in refighting old battles,” he said. Even without such a rosy scenario, Obama could benefit from a different kind of sixth-year hitch: a fractured opposition. Democrats were on the march in 1986 and won control of the Senate. Republicans were eager to tar Clinton in the Lewinsky scandal in 1998, and Democrats used growing disdain for the war in Iraq to win control of Congress in 2006. This year, Republicans remain divided between grass-roots tea party conservatives, who abhor compromise, and establishment types willing to moderate their views to

It’s not unified on whether to extend emergency jobless benefits, which expired at the end of last month. “I’m also convinced we can help Americans return to the workforce faster by reforming unemployment insurance, so that it’s more effective in today’s economy,” Obama said. “But first, this Congress needs to restore the unemployment insurance you just let expire for 1.6 million people.” Obama’s mission Tuesday, though, was not to urge patience with history but to help rewrite it.

are well-liked by the brothers, an invitation to a preference dinner on Friday is extended, and eventually bids are given out. Each fraternity puts its own unique spin on the bidding process, which remains a work in progress throughout the week. In Kappa Sigma, every night after rush events, the brothers gather around a projector and take notes on potential new members, holding group discussions and voting on who they still like, Martino said. Justin David, pre-business sophomore and vice president of membership for Delta Tau Delta, said his fraternity will be looking for outgoing leaders who are unafraid to speak their minds. “After two open houses, we put the guys’ pictures on a projection screen and members will ask if they have what it takes to be a Delta,” David said. “They should be themselves; the frat wont be the right fit for you if you aren’t. It’s just like hanging out with the guys.” Around 475 men are registered for this recruitment week, but 20-30 more are expected to sign up by the end of this week. “The amount of men that receive bids will be up to the individual chapters,” Geyer said, “but based on past years, I would expect about 300 or so men to receive an invitation to join one of our 18 IFC fraternities this spring.” With lower participant numbers in the rush process, some fraternities will only be taking five to 10 pledges this week. “We’re looking forward to getting new guys as well as new brothers, to take them under our wings and maybe even change their lives through brotherhood,” David said. — Follow Katya Mendoza @katya_nadine

APROPOS OF NOTHING
Apocalypse Tucson will have it good
BY LOGAN ROGERS The Daily Wildcat
ometimes people who complain about the Old Pueblo annoy me. These haters say Tucson is too hot, too dry, too boring, has too much crime, not enough crime — whatever. I will silence these critics by putting on my Nostradamus hat and predicting a bright future for this city — exactly 26 years from now. Some people assume that global warming will make Arizona go from hot to uninhabitable. But there’s a factor these detractors have not considered: Global warming could cause the polar ice caps to completely melt, drastically changing the coastline of the oceans. While this would be slightly unfortunate for California, let’s set that aside for a moment. I give you three words: Tucson beachfront property. How awesome would it be to not have to drive all the way to Rocky Point or San Diego to splash around in the Pacific Ocean? Besides public beaches, future Tucson will also benefit from the high property values that coastal communities have. Millionaire snobs might be somewhat annoying, but let’s set that aside for a moment, too. I give you three more words: property tax revenue. The city coffers will be filled to the brim with cold, hard cash. The city may not be able to pave its streets with gold, but it might be able to fill in our thousands of potholes with gold. In this future prosperous Tucson, Fourth Avenue will be a lot like Park Avenue in New York City. Our Broadway will be just as good as the one in Manhattan, if not better. Actual Congress will want to move into Hotel Congress. But don’t worry; we won’t let them. We have to have some community standards, after all. The Tucson Streetcar will be a huge success, surpassing the London Underground and the New York City subway as the most famous city public transportation system in the world. It will completely solve our traffic problems. In fact, we will have so little traffic that Speedway Boulevard will finally live up to its name and increase its speed limit to 75 mph, or maybe follow in the footsteps of the German Autobahn and have no speed limit at all. Of course, the UA will benefit from the rise of Tucson. With our warm weather, convenient beaches and spectacular lack of traffic, we will attract the top athletes in the country. Our men’s basketball program will go from very good to downright elite. We’ll go to the Final Four every year and win several championships. It will be like Duke with fewer preppies or like Kansas with fewer tornadoes or like Kentucky with some players who actually stay past their freshman year. Our football team will finally win the Rose Bowl. The game will technically be played underwater because of the whole Californiaglobal-warming thing, but Arizona players have enough experience throwing around the football while hanging out in swimming pools that they will easily adapt to this aquatic environment. Our academic reputation will also skyrocket. We’ll surpass the slightly submerged UC Berkeley as the top public university in the country. The entire faculty of Cornell University will leave that Ivy League school’s cold, depressing location for the exotic UA. But college reputations are a competitive business. As our academic reputation rises, the reputation of ASU will decline. Eventually, the Arizona Board of Regents will have to demote it back to its original identity as Tempe Normal. A few years after that, it will be demoted even further and become known as Tempe Abnormal. I can’t wait until we see how many of my awesome predictions come true! So much so that if even one thing I predicted with my psychic powers does not actually happen, I will begrudgingly disown this column. We’ll talk about this in January 2040. Meet me on campus, on the ivory steps in front of the diamond-encrusted building they used to call Old Main. Disclaimer: As a general rule, nothing in Logan Rogers’ columns should be taken seriously. He does realize that the actual effects of severe climate change would not likely be positive. — Logan Rogers is a second-year law student. Follow him @DailyWildcat
Global climate change won’t fizzle out, even if Coke does BY SHELBY THOMAS The Daily Wildcat
he phrase “climate change” has crept past the lips of “concerned” news reporters, surfaced in the speeches of politicians hungry for votes and echoed through courtrooms as proposed bills have come and gone; all the while, the potential for change has fallen by the wayside. Most American citizens have heard the reports about how humans are contributing to the effects of climate change through excessive greenhouse gas emissions. Yet many dismiss these warnings and continue to release the gases at alarming rates. This is not a matter of crying wolf. Denial will be our downfall. The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found that “humans have most likely caused all of the global warming over the past 60 years,” according to an article by The Guardian — a statement that has merited a 97 percent consensus among climate experts. Citizens are less sure. Researchers from Yale University and George
Mason University reported that the number of Americans who don’t believe that climate change is occurring has increased by 7 percent since the spring of 2013, reaching a six-year high of 23 percent. Other than viewing the occasional public service announcement featuring a stranded polar bear on a slushy block of ice, many Americans would rather pretend that climate change warnings do not exist. Nobody wants to admit that their failure to recycle and ride a bicycle could eventually lead to the downfall of our ecosystem. But the fact is, we’re running out of time. In The Guardian, climate scientists warn that if the emission of greenhouse gases does not decrease, humanity will face dire consequences in the next two to three decades, as the climate warms more than 2 degrees Celsius. Sea levels will rise, oceans will become more acidic and we will suffer heat waves, droughts and other extreme types of weather. The implications of these events are hard to fathom when written on paper, but some major climate shifts have already given us a taste of the impending chaos. Researchers recognize that the recent polar vortex could be a side
effect of climate change. Scientists of the Geological Society of America also believe that a 13.2foot storm surge during Hurricane Sandy was worsened by climate change. In The Huffington Post, climatologist Michael Mann said that “rising sea levels set the stage for a more damaging storm surge.” Even things we’d never associate with global warming — like CocaCola — are in danger. Coca-Cola’s sugar cane, sugar beets and citrus supplies are being disturbed by unpredictable water levels due to global droughts. But the everyman isn’t making the connection between the inconveniences of their daily life and the global scale of climate change. Scientists, the media and the public need to work together to spread info and to interpret new research as it comes out. President Barack Obama has outlined many projects to take place throughout the next few decades, including one that will help commercial, industrial and multifamily buildings cut down on waste and become more energy efficient, and another with the goal of reducing carbon pollution by at least 3 billion metric tons through stricter efficiency standards.
While these changes are both progressive and effective, their effects won’t be seen for several years. In the meantime, citizens should stay up to date on the most recent developments regarding global warming through informative sites like the Environmental Defense Fund, and, more importantly, commit to a more sustainable lifestyle. It’s the small changes now that will help to make significant changes in the future. Turning down the heat of your thermostat or nixing it completely, lowering the temperature of your water heater, always running a full load in the dishwasher — these are simple steps that even a busy college student could manage. As students at a top university, we are the scholars who will one day be leading the workforce and making the important decisions that will affect our government, our nation and our world. There is no need to wait for board meetings to be held and laws to be passed: We can make our own change. — Shelby Thomas is a sophomore studying family studies and human development and Spanish.

Ditching carbs risky, not healthy BY ELEANOR FERGUSON The Daily Wildcat
s a member of the running community, I’ve heard a lot about the Paleo diet, which is protein and plant-based with minimal carb intake. Many of my running friends swear by it, claiming that they feel better eating mostly fat and protein instead of carbs. I, however, am skeptical. All of my attempts to lower my carb intake left me feeling depleted on my runs, unable to move as swiftly and easily as I could when I had eaten a balanced meal. I needed carbs. Low-carb diets like the Atkins, the Dukan and the Paleo have risen to the top of the trendy diet pack, attracting both Average Joes trying to lose weight and athletes seeking to improve their performance. But if athletes, UA or otherwise, want to perform at their best and foster favorable long-term health, they need to maintain a well-balanced diet. Dieting fads, on the other hand, foster only poor performance and, in extreme cases, death. Not all carbs are bad, as many people believe. Fruits, vegetables and whole grains are all carbohydrate sources with plentiful health benefits. They contain vitamins and minerals, nutrients

that our bodies need to grow, repair and function properly. Carbs also provide the energy that our bodies need just to perform daily activities — as well as to exercise — regularly. And we need to replenish them often, even more so if we’re very active. According to Jennifer Ricketts, a UA faculty member and registered dietician, the body needs some carbohydrates in order for its metabolic systems to function properly. But though the body contains unlimited fat stores and lots of muscle, it can only store a limited amount of carbs. When the glucose from carbs runs out, fatty acids accumulate and produce ketones, which form when fat in the cells is not completely broken down. Too many ketones in the body cause acidic pH levels, known as ketoacidosis, which could kill. Other cells without the capacity to use fats as energy, like red blood cells, are totally reliant on carbs. Without the carbs they need, these cells will start to eat away at protein tissue and muscles. It’s apparent that replenishing carbohydrates regularly is critical for anyone’s health, especially an athlete’s. Athletes also need carb intake more than others do because of the recovery period they engage in after a workout. Optimally, the body needs a 3.5:1 carbs-to-protein ratio post-workout so that it can replenish its glycogen stores as well as repair the muscles torn during exercise.

Depleted glycogen stores can cause fatigue. When combined with a diet lacking enough calories or a variety of nutrients for proper maintenance — like a low-carb plan — repairing bones, muscles and organs is significantly more difficult. Though low-carb diets could work for some, they must first be given trial runs. This period of adaptation, not ideal for any athlete during training and racing periods, is necessary in order to determine whether these diets will be an effective energy source. If the body is able to adapt, it will use less energy and feel satisfied faster at meals, and it may experience euphoric feelings from the higher ketone levels. But even with the knowledge of these potential benefits, Ricketts still warns about the long-term damage, such as acidic pH levels, that low-carb diets can inflict on the body. The risk is just too great. Without the nutrients that carbohydrates provide, athletes put their best performance, long-term health and even their lives at danger. So, instead of monitoring every calorie and carb that enters your body, you should pick up the foods that will nourish it. Your body can perform at high levels, but only if you fuel it right. — Eleanor Ferguson is a pre-journalism freshman. Follow her @DailyWildcat

Police Beat by adriana espinosa The Daily Wildcat
You snooze, you lose
The University of Arizona Police Department responded to a call on Friday involving a non-UA affiliated man who was passed out on the side of the Administration building. Officers were called by a resident assistant who saw the man. When they arrived, one of the officers observed the man snoring and attempted to wake him up by shouting. The man woke up, but seemed dazed and confused. The officer wanted to make sure that the man was OK and asked him if was sleeping or passed out. This angered the man, and he became hostile and agitated. The officer then tried to figure out why he was on campus. He asked the man if he needed help with anything or if he was lost, but the man did not answer any of his questions. UA Emergency Medical Services arrived to evaluate the man, but he resisted and became even more aggressive. The UAPD officer then ran a history check on the man and found he had been cited for two other incidents on campus within the past month: for sifting through trash receptacles and trespassing in the Physics and Atmospheric Sciences building. The officer began to read the man his rights, and while he was doing so, the man said, “Go ahead and read it, finish it — I don’t care about it or you.” At this point, due to the man’s hostile and argumentative behavior and his prior encounters with UAPD within the past few weeks, he was issued an Exclusionary Order that prohibits him from returning to campus for six months.

A UA employee contacted UAPD regarding a counterfeit bill last Thursday. The employee said she was counting money and noticed that a particular $20 bill had a different texture than the other bills and looked odd. After looking closer, she noticed that it had a reflective surface and realized the bill was fake. The bill was received sometime during the women’s basketball game on Jan. 17 in McKale Center. Although the time a customer paid with the fake $20 bill could not be determined, UAPD took it into evidence, and it was forwarded to the U.S. Secret Service.

Excellence in Undergraduate Academic Advising
Getting too fratty
Two UA students were arrested and released for underage drinking last Sunday. While patrolling First Street and Vine Avenue, an officer noticed two women in an odd situation: one was lying with half of her body on the sidewalk and half in a bush, and the other woman was standing over her, trying to get her out of the bush. When the officer pulled over, the women began to walk away. The officer asked them to stop after he noticed that the woman who had been in the bush could barely walk, and asked if they needed medical attention. They both replied no and said they were just trying to get home. When the officer asked the woman why she had been lying in the bushes, she claimed she had fallen because she was tired from walking. While talking to the women, the officer could smell alcohol on both of their breaths and saw they both had bloodshot eyes. He asked them where they were coming from, and they replied, “A house on Greek Row.” “The frat boys kicked us out,” one of them said. They would not specify which house they were drinking at, and kept asking the officer to give them a warning so they wouldn’t get in trouble. Both girls were arrested on charges of underage drinking and were released at the scene. They were diverted to the Dean of Students Office.

The feminine, badass Dum Dum Girls hit all the right notes on their new album ‘Too True’ so well that it is fresh and original. Too True is a mix of ’80s pop, rock, a little ’60s and a splash of what is current and now. My one complaint here might be a lack of diversity in tempo. All the songs are relatively the same speed, sans the album closer, “Trouble is My Name.” Lyrically, it is the deepest on the album; in it, the writer accepts both herself and her counterpart as troubled and imperfect. My all-time favorite Dum Dum Girls song is actually one of their slow jams, “Coming Down” from the previous album. The song is so emotional, so sad, that it moves me to tears. It seems there was not room on this album for another “Coming Down,” and that’s OK. This album is for moving forward and coming to terms with your screwed-up self, not lamenting about people who have hurt you in the past. It’s summed up best by Dee Dee herself: “Why be good? Be beautiful and sad, it’s all you’ve ever had.” Make sure to pick up Too True, out now on Sub Pop, and check out Dum Dum Girls on March 9 in Phoenix at the Crescent Ballroom.

BAY AREA BATTLE Men’s basketball puts its perfect record to the test at Stanford
UA TO STREAM SIGNING DAY FESTIVITIES
BY EVAN ROSENFELD
The Daily Wildcat
The No. 1-ranked Arizona men’s basketball team is off to its best start in Pac-12 Conference play in more than a decade, and will look to extend its school records tonight at 7 p.m. when the Wildcats face Stanford at Maples Pavilion. Stanford hasn’t beaten the UA since 2009, but it features a veteran lineup. Head coach Sean Miller said that sometimes you forget how much experience players like Cardinal starters Josh Huestis, Dwight Powell and Chasson Randle have. “These are guys who have been through multiple seasons of the Pac12,” Miller said. “We’re playing against a veteran team, a talented [one] and [one] that has as much experience as anyone. I think this is a big opportunity for both teams here on Wednesday.” Miller explained that on the road, the whole atmosphere in the arena is strikingly different for a visiting team. “The crowd is completely against you,” Miller said, “so not only do you have the crowd against you, but also you’ve lost the crowd that’s [there] for you [at home] — in our case, a great crowd. You only have each other and really do rely a lot on your togetherness and cooperation.” Miller said the Wildcats will have to work even harder on their staple: Defense. “Defense isn’t nearly as easy because you have everything working against you,” Miller said. “In my mind, you have to play even harder on the road defensively, and many times, that’s why you win. That’s going to be a great challenge for us this week. Can our defense hold steady in those types of environments away from home?” Arizona enjoys an all-time 55-29 game advantage over Stanford, and the Wildcats have won the last seven against the Cardinal. Last season, in
Arizona’s résumé a lot better than SU’s BY JAMES KELLEY The Daily Wildcat
t’s always sunny in Tucson, especially with the No. 1 men’s basketball team in the country residing in the Old Pueblo, but some people think that’s a snow job. For eight straight weeks Arizona has been No. 1, and Syracuse No. 2 in the AP Top 25 ranking. And though the UA has gotten at least 60 of the 65 first=place votes each week during that span — 63 in the latest poll — some people still think those rankings are full of number two. After Arizona’s win over Utah, UA alumnus and ESPN reporter Jeff Goodman was compelled to tweet, “For those Syracuse fans saying Orange more deserving of top spot, resumes aren’t even close. Arizona clear-cut No. 1 right now.” ESPN reporter Myron Medcalf wrote an entire column saying Syracuse was better, called, “Numbers, eyes agree: The Syracuse Orange are the best in the nation.” Yes, ESPN likes to stir up trouble. Its tendency to hire loudmouthed and obnoxious personalities is so infamous that even NBC’s “30 Rock” parodied it with “Sports Shouting,” but some people have actually voted Syracuse over Arizona. It’s not just a case of the old East Coast bias rearing its ugly head or people who don’t have the Pac-12 Networks writing the UA off: San Jose Mercury News reporter Jon Wilner voted SU over Arizona last week. They must be bored or trying to get hits from Syracuse fans. There is no way SU should be ranked ahead of the Wildcats. Arizona is No. 2 in the RPI, with the 18th toughest strength of schedule, while Syracuse is No. 6, with the 96th best SOS. Arizona’s road wins: No. 5 San

The Daily Wildcat
After returning for a senior year, a rare occurrence for a star college baseball player, James Farris may be Arizona’s presumed ace, but he isn’t taking anything for granted. “I want to be the Friday night guy. I’m not entitled to it,” the right-hander said. “I just want to go out there and give my team a chance to win every single game.” The senior decided to return to Tucson after being drafted by the Houston Astros last season. Farris said one of the reasons he decided to stay at Arizona was to improve his numbers. However, that wasn’t the main reason. “I have a really good loyalty to UA. I really enjoy [head] coach [Andy] Lopez and what he’s done for me,” Farris said. Farris was a sophomore when he pitched during the College World Series and when Arizona defeated South Carolina to earn its fourth NCAA baseball title. He pitched eight innings during that game and had current junior Mathew Troupe go in for relief. Last season, Arizona didn’t make it to Omaha. Another reason why Farris decided to come CECILIA ALVAREZ/THE DAILY WILDCAT back was to try and get to Omaha in his final ARIZONA SENIOR PITCHER James Farris returns to Tucson season as a Wildcat. “The best option for me was to come back after being drafted in 2013.

Arizona finishes tournament strong BY LUKE DELLA
The Daily Wildcat Arizona men’s golf team finished in second at the Arizona Intercollegiate after shooting a 287 in the third and final round on Tuesday . The Wildcats ended the second round on Monday sitting in a tie for fourth place. Arizona shot a 290 and 291 in the first two rounds, but another strong performance by Kolton Lapa and Erik Oja allowed the team to leap ahead. Lapa went into the third round in third place and managed to end the tournament tied for the third-best individual score, shooting an even 212 over the three rounds. Oja’s third round score of 0 helped him finish the tournament three shots over par and with a total score of 216. Oja entered the third round in a tie for 15th, but after Tuesday’s strong performance, he was bumped up to eighth. Two of the other three Arizona golfers competing in the team event also improved on their first two round scores. In the third round, Alex McMahon went from 23rd to 17th place, and

Diego State, No. 10 Michigan and UCLA, are vastly superior to the Orange’s road schedule. San Diego State has only lost once: to Arizona in SDSU’s second game of the year. The Aztecs beat No. 20 Creighton, Marquette and No. 6 Kansas on the road at Allen Fieldhouse, ending the Jayhawks’ 68-game non-conference winning streak at home. Meanwhile, Michigan has beaten three top 10 teams in a row: Wisconsin, Iowa and Michigan State. The Wolverines are also 7-0
Brenden Redfern went from 28th to 23rd. The unranked Wildcats got some needed help as No. 24 USC fell apart in the final round. The Trojans ended the second round in first place but shot 20 strokes over par to finish the tournament in fourth place. USC’s Anthony Paolucci was in first place of the individual scores after Monday. However, Paolucci shot eight shots over par on the final round to fall into a tie for fifth. No. 3 California reaped the most from the Trojans’ failures. The Golden Bears went from second to first in the final round and 15 strokes ahead of the second-place Wildcats. California’s Brandon Hagy and Joel Stalter tied for first with an overall score of two shots below par. Arizona’s next tournament is from Feb. 19-21 at the John Burns Invitational in Hawaii.
in the Big Ten, widely regarded as the best conference this year. Syracuse’s only road wins are St. John’s (128), Virginia Tech (8-11), Boston College (5-14) and Miami (10-9). Syracuse’s conference, the ACC, is down this year. As of Monday morning, when the latest polls were released, only five of its 15 schools had 14 or more wins. The Orange’s only chance to get a road win that remotely resembles the gauntlet the UA has run is its Feb. 22 game at No. 17 Duke (17-4). However, the Wildcats already beat the Blue Devils at Madison Square Garden, which is often considered a home court for Duke.

Of course, January rankings don’t mean a lot. The UA could very well lose this week to Stanford (13-6), and Syracuse could stumble on Wake Forest (14-6). But sports is all about arguments and determining who’s the best. Poor Syracuse seems destined to be No. 2. In the latest list of the snowiest colleges by AccuWeather, SU dropped from No. 1 to No. 2, behind Michigan Technological University. No word yet on what Michigan Tech’s strength of schedule is, though. — Follow James Kelley @jameskelley520
Who is your favorite UA men’s basketball player?
Huestis is averaging 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. Stanford’s leading rebounder is a frontrunner for the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year. He is striking close to averaging a double-double per game and is on a quest to become the first Stanford player to do so since the 2001-02 season. Over his collegiate career, Huestis stands as one of three players in program history to have compiled at least 500 points, 500 rebounds and 100 blocks. He currently ranks second in school history with 157 blocks. In previous contests against Arizona, Huestis totaled more rebounds (21) than points (20) on 7-21 (33.3 percent) shooting. Chasson Randle — junior guard — #5 6-foot-2; 185 pounds Randle is averaging 19.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. He will represent the most dangerous scoring threat when Stanford attempts to pierce Arizona’s suffocating defense. He is shooting with 49.4 percent accuracy from the field and 78.2 percent from the stripe. This season, Randle has scored double digits 17 times and has reached his career high of 33 points twice. However, in the two times that Randle has faced the Wildcats, he has been limited to a combined 21 points and is shooting 7-for-27 (25.9 percent) from the field.

“My favorite player is T.J. McConnell. “My favorite UA player is Gabe York. He is really good at shooting He’s a funny guy; I see him before the games messing around with Nick 3-pointers and he is attractive.” Johnson. He looks like he’s a cool guy to hang out with.
“My favorite basketball player is Aaron Gordon because he is doing really great this season. He’s a great team player.”
“My favorite player is T.J. McConnell. He is the best point guard and passes better than anybody on the team. Without him, our team could not win.”
COMPILED BY DANIELA VIZCARRA
Arizona’s sole matchup against Stanford in Tucson, the Wildcats earned a 73-66 victory. The Cardinal’s most recent victory over Arizona came with a 76-60 win in Palo Alto on Jan. 4, 2009. The game will be aired on ESPN2.
