Cobracalia honors new album at Rialto

T

CHELSEY WADE

o celebrate the completion of its final album, the band Cobracalia will host a live release party at the Rialto Theatre downtown this Friday at 8 p.m. The passion Cobracalia, formerly known as Black Sun Ensemble, put into its album Behind Purple Clouds will be accompanied by three belly dancing troupes and a laser light show. Eric Johnson, Cobracalia’s bass and keyboard player, said the album’s unique folk-rock sound is shaped not only by legendary musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, George Harrison and Jimmy Page, but also by the distinct personality of the Southwest. “I always felt that the desert played an influence in Black Sun Ensemble,” Johnson said. “There’s a sort of quality to the desert as hauntingly beautiful that’s reflected in our music.” The combination of a desert sound, ’60s rock and German experimental rock bands like Can and Neu! paved the foundation for Cobracalia’s music. Band members of Black Sun Ensemble faced tragedy during the production of Behind Purple Clouds when former lead singer Jesus Acedo died in March of last year. The loss of a friend and integral component of the band led the members of Black Sun Ensemble to adopt the name Cobracalia, the title of a song from their first album, as a show of respect for Acedo. With the new name, the musicians worked feverishly to finish the album

with the help of local supporters. Eric expressed his gratitude for the musicians who collaborated on the album. “To fill in that gap of songs he wasn’t on, we recruited a bunch of people in town … to finish up the parts that weren’t done,” Eric said. In addition to all of the guest artists that worked on the album, the Tucson Pima Arts Council contributed to the completion of Behind Purple Clouds by awarding Cobracalia the New Works Grant in August specifically to advance Acedo’s legacy. Local bands — Eric Johnson Burning Palms bass and keyboard, Cobracalia and the Leila Lopez band, who were both involved with the album’s creation, will open at Friday’s event. “It’s bigger than we’ve ever done before,” Johnson said. “It’s very exciting. It’s all falling into place.” This Friday night’s show is an opportunity to hear the band that has been making music for close to 30 years at its Behind Purple Clouds release party. The event is open to all ages and tickets are $5. Doors open at 7 p.m. for unique music, belly dancers and an ornate light show.

“THERE’S A SORT OF QUALITY TO THE DESERT AS HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL THAT’S REFLECTED IN OUR MUSIC.”

‘I, Frankenstein’: monstrously dreadful Gargoyles, demons and mediocre plot are recipe for unfortunate film with boring story line

T COURTESY OF HOPSCOTCH FEATURES

The Loft features Hepburn screenings

I

KEVIN REAGAN

s it her big brown eyes, her sense of style or her natural talent for acting? There are a multitude of reasons people fall in love with the late Audrey Hepburn. This February, The Loft Cinema is using the whole month to celebrate the actress’ many charming attributes. With a series of screenings appropriately titled “Our Fair Audrey,” The Loft plans to show four different films every Thursday night that highlight Hepburn’s talent in the romantic comedy genre. Starting with “Sabrina” (1954) on Thursday and ending with the iconic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” on Feb. 27, each of the films fits with the romantic atmosphere of Valentine’s Day.

ALEX GUYTON

here’s a good reason why monster movies are not normally released in months other than October: They end up like this film. “I, Frankenstein” fails on all fronts, apart from being a laughingstock. Before I detail the plot synopsis for “I, Frankenstein,” I would like to describe the plot of an episode of the Adult Swim cartoon “Aqua Teen Hunger Force.” The show revolves around the lives and random adventures of housemates Master Shake (a milkshake), Frylock (a carton of fries) and Meatwad (a meatball). In the episode “MC Pee Pants,” the trio happens upon a dastardly plot hatched by a giant spider wearing a diaper. The spider’s mission: to pose as a rapper whose music

“People always go wild for her,” said Jeff Yanc, program director of The Loft. Yanc said Hepburn is the perfect candidate for a screening series like this, due to her massive appeal with both older and younger generations. The Loft has screened some of Hepburn’s films in the past and noticed large numbers of patrons coming dressed as some of the actress’s most famous characters. Yanc said that he hopes that by presenting these classic films on the big screen, the theater can showcase the beauty of both Hepburn and the films. “There is a delicateness, a frailness and innocence about her,” Yanc said. “That doesn’t exist anymore in the stars of today.”

‘Sabrina’ (1954) — Thursday

Billy Wilder’s modernized ugly duckling tale has Hepburn attracting the favor of Humphrey Bogart and William Holden in a complicated love triangle. Cast as a chauffeur’s daughter who blossoms into a Parisian fashionista, Hepburn embraces a comedic wit that leaves her leading men hopelessly lovestruck. This film features the Academy Award-winning costume designs of Edith Head, who also dressed Hepburn in her debut film “Roman Holiday” the year before this film.

‘Funny Face’ (1957) — Feb. 13

One of the films that gave Hepburn the opportunity to exercise her lifelong

will contain subliminal messages convincing listeners to eat lots of candy, so he can use their hyperactive brain activity to power a drill that will bore into the center of the earth and unleash demons from hell to run a global diet pill pyramid scheme. This is sort of like the plot to “I, Frankenstein,” but with more legitimacy and believability. Frankenstein’s monster, Adam (Oh why, Aaron Eckhart?), becomes involved in the eternal battle between members of the Gargoyle Order, who are descendants of the St. Michael the archangel, and demons. The demons apparently don’t have a cool club name like “Gargoyle Order.” I wouldn’t say they deserve one, either, since their faces look like the reject masks on clearance at Party City the day after Halloween. The demons and the gargoyles battle in the

city of Paris. The gargoyles’ home base is a giant cathedral with stained glass windows (those windows are probably the best part of the film because they are so bright and colorful). Apparently, the humans don’t know that this conflict has been going on, a notion which I find to be ludicrous. Every night, monsters carve up the streets and rooftops in a cacophony of heavenly light and hellfire, and yet no one’s the wiser. It should also be noted that Frankenstein’s monster is an action hero in this movie. In one of the initial montages, we see him practicing fighting in the mountains with a couple of blunt poles. From that point forward he’s a demonkilling machine, like the bastard child of Jason Statham and Van Helsing.

FRANKENSTEIN, 5

love of dance, this catchy musical pairs her with toe-tapping legend Fred Astaire. Perhaps best known to modern audiences from a 2006 GAP commercial that used a scene from the film of Hepburn dancing adorably in skinny black pants, “Funny Face” is an enjoyable tale of the wonderment and artificiality of the fashion world. Again characterized as a Plain Jane who transforms into a goddess of beauty, this film offers the rare opportunity for fans to hear Hepburn’s singing voice.

‘Charade’ (1963) — Feb. 20

Thriller, comedy, romance and satire — these are just a few genres this spy movie explores through the streets of Paris. Featuring the intoxicating chemistry of Hepburn and her co-star Cary Grant, the plot mirrors the complexity of an Alfred Hitchcock film. Hepburn plays a widow being stalked by a gang of greedy crooks. Mysterious Grant comes into the picture to rescue her from a series of traps, though none compares to how Hepburn ensnares Grant’s heartd.

‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ (1961) — Feb. 27

Arguably the most popular of Hepburn’s films, this adaptation of Truman Capote’s novella has Hepburn breaking the mold of her typically straight-laced characters

FRANKENSTEIN FROM PAGE 4

Adam, after beating his way through demon after demon with his trusty nightsticks, uncovers the big twist of the movie (spoiler alert): Prince Naberius (Bill Nighy), demon lord, has been stockpiling a massive underground lab with thousands and thousands of corpses. He’s going to summon demons to repossess the bodies because demons can only inhabit bodies that have no soul (obviously), but first he has to figure out how to reanimate the corpses. Shades of “Aqua Teen” and “MC Pee Pants,” anyone? If you’re upset that I have just spoiled what may have been a surprising twist, you can rest assured I’ve done no such thing. You see, this big reveal happens 40 minutes in, which is not even halfway through the movie, and it doesn’t even feel like a huge deal. This brings me to the worst part of the film. The pacing in “I, Frankenstein” is awful, as there’s simply nothing but rising action. There’s no downtime, which means that everything holds the same weight. Every scene has the feeling of perpetual motion, kind of like a 92-minute climax. Unfortunately, that doesn’t translate to 92 pulse-pounding minutes, but rather 92 minutes of apathy. The very first, inconsequential fight between Adam and a couple of the demons feels just the same as the climactic, be-all, end-all brouhaha between the gargoyles and demons. I don’t know if I could emphatically declare this film a complete failure, as it’s good for a few laughs at its expense. However, as I was walking out of the theater, a young woman turned to me and simply asked, “Was that one of the worst movies you’ve ever seen?” I wouldn’t go that far, but this slightly altered title may be a bit more accurate: “I, Suck.”

by playing a free-spirited New York City call girl. A performance that earned Hepburn one of her five Academy Award nominations for Best Actress, her Holly Golightly is a fascinating combination of charm, style and disillusionment. The closer the audience gets to uncovering the identity of the character, the more anxious and trapped Hepburn’s Golightly appears. There is a reason this film is considered the peak of Hepburn’s career, as it shows the multi-dimensionality of an actress at the top of her game. Not to mention, Hepburn’s rendition of “Moon River” will leave you in a daze.

Campus is a runway for stylish students: See what these trendsetters are wearing to class

COMPILED BY KELLI VU Rebecca Van Scoter Studying Studio Art And French How would you describe your outfit today? Today is kind of like the things I have in the back of my closet. Ironically, these are kind of the more stylish things. I kind of throw things together. What would you describe your style as on a typical day? Jeans and a T-shirt and a jacket most of the time. How do you feel when you are dressed in your unique style? I just feel comfortable, and I’m like one of those of people that doesn’t feel like wearing things that are too feminine unless I have to, and it just makes me feel more like an individual.

How would you describe your outfit today? My outfit today… dark. Dark in general.

How would you describe your outfit today? Rainbow. I wanted to do bright colors but I couldn’t find bright colors, so I found a wig.

What would you describe your style as on a typical day? I never really think about it. Plain but with a splash of color. I like neutrals, sort of like when you are in a city you’re supposed to wear dark colors so you don’t stand out. I’m used to stylish, but not in anybody’s way. How do you feel when you are dressed in your unique style? Really good. It makes walking in heels more fun and less painful.

What would you describe your style as on a typical day? Functional and comfortable. How do you feel when you are dressed in your unique style? It’s fun to dress in really crazy clothes and … brighten someone’s day when you go to Wal-Mart and IHOP.

The cat’s meow Tucson’s Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter provides haven for felines in need of a home

A

Joey Fisher

ccording to myth, every cat has nine lives — but abandoned cats don’t always get a second chance. One Tucson shelter is making sure homeless cats can enjoy all of their lives to the fullest. The Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter is a local nonprofit institute that provides sanctuary and medical attention for homeless cats. It is the only shelter in Tucson that has a “no-kill” policy. This 48-year-old shelter serves as an inhouse adoption agency and a long-term home for more than 200 cats. The facility features a 8,000 square foot “roam-free” living area, more than 300 volunteers, a staff of nurses, a leukemia ward and a FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) ward. It’s even planning to open a thrift store next month to bring in more funds. For now, Hermitage thrives on the generosity of others. All of its food, supplies, beds and toys are donations from the community. Lee Bucyk, the executive assistant at Hermitage, started working at the shelter eight months ago. She said there are about 70-100 adoptions every month. “Knowing that they are not roaming outside somewhere and that they’re sheltered is the most beneficial part of working here,” Bucyk said.

Hermitage’s mission is to ensure a loving home for every cat, whether through adoption or continued stay at the shelter itself. “It is very fulfilling,” Bucyk said. “Seeing the animals get adopted and knowing that they are being loved every day from the people that work here is very rewarding.” About 100 of the shelter’s volunteers serve on a regular basis, said Carolin Atchison, the volunteer coordinator. “Volunteers are a really critical component to keeping all our kitties happy and healthy,” she said. “Happy, healthy cats make much more adoptable cats.” Atchison said that volunteers help with everything, including the maintenance of the shelter, scooping the litter boxes, doing the dishes and the laundry on a daily basis. But the main benefit of having the volunteers there is their socialization with the cats. “We have some cats that have been through really traumatic circumstances,” Atchison said. “They are very shy when they get here, which makes them harder to

adopt.” Hermitage provides socialization classes where volunteers learn how to help shy cats become more social by working with two or three cats at a time. They foster a relationship by playing with cats, stroking them and spending time with them. “Over time, they become way more social and break out of their shell,” Atchison said. “They really learn to trust humans again.” There are many success stories of cats from — Carolin Atchison, distressing homes volunteer coordinator that come to the shelter and end up being adopted by loving families., she added. Each volunteer shows their dedication to the cats in their own way. Atchison said a particular volunteer helps groom the cats by bringing her own dry shampoo, while volunteers with medical backgrounds spend time with the leukemia and FIV cats. “We have a lot of volunteers with handy backgrounds,” Atchison said, “so they just come by and help out with whatever they can.” Volunteers not only aid the cats, but also help with maintenance around the shelter.

“Volunteers are a really critical component to keeping our kitties happy and healthy.”

The painting, landscaping, construction, medical attention and cleaning is all done by volunteers. “This morning I swept off the patio to make a nicer entrance for our guests,” said volunteer Jan Moser. Moser started volunteering at the shelter recently, shortly after she retired. She also takes a medical class to learn more about feline health, and said she wants to get more hands-on experience. She hopes to see more shelters take on the no-killing practice. Moser often helps with the thrift store that the shelter is planning to open February 8. Profits from the Hermitage Thrift Store & More will go toward the shelter’s expenses. She said it’s a perfect fit for her, because her two favorite things are garage sales and cats. Shelter staff need help sorting through clothing and other household items, so the shelter is hosting “All-Hands-On-Deck” volunteer event this Saturday at the thrift shop location. Whether cleaning the shelves or painting paw prints on the walls, volunteers are there to save the day. “We couldn’t do it without the volunteers,” Atchison said. “It’s great to see all this love and caring for cats in the community.”

H e y, Bark eep!

What’s your favorite drink to make? I like making up new drinks. What concoction are you most proud of? I made up a drink and it’s pretty delicious. Chicks love it. … It’s called a Double-Sided Dildo. Your least favorite drink to make? Probably lemondrop shots … just annoying and they’re not very good. There’s like, way better drinks. … There’s way better shots. It’s very amateur. People who have just turned 21 like them. I just think that they don’t know better. Is there a strangest, weird thing you’ve ever seen go down at the bar? People dressed up as gorillas, dancing on the bar. That was pretty fun. If, as a customer, I want to piss you off, what do I do? Be very rude, but at The Wreck you should be prepared because we’ll be rude back. What can I do to make your job as easy as possible? Be respectful. We’re not your servants. We are people as well. Like when people smile and are nice and talk to you and stuff like that, it makes your night a lot better. It’s funny how that goes a long way. Right? Not too hard. Right? But you’d be surprised. What’s a drinking trend you’d like to see go away? I mean, we don’t have a lot of trends at this bar, because The Wreck is a very simple bar, in a way. We don’t make martinis, we don’t make those fancy drinks. It’s a good country bar that likes to have fun and we serve canned beer and drink from plastic cups. It’s just a lot of fun, so we don’t have a lot of trends. People for their power hour, or whatever, we get them on the bar and give them a birthday shot.

Unbeaten UA faces Bears in Berkeley EVAN ROSENFELD PALO ALTO, Calif. — The No. 1 ranked Arizona men’s basketball team will attempt to extend its winning streak to 22 against Cal’s Golden Bears on Saturday night at a sold-out Haas Pavilion. The game represents a chance to tie the school record for consecutive wins, 22, which was set over four seasons from 191314 to 1916-17. As head coach, J.F. “Pop” McKale won 21 of those games, including two undefeated seasons (9-0 in 1914-15 and 5-0 in 1915-16). UA head coach Sean Miller was quick to remind his team that while being undefeated feels great, it is by no means the ultimate goal for the Wildcats. “Our goal is not to be undefeated, so much as to compete for the Pac-12 Conference championship,” Miller said. “We’re just taking it one day at a time right now.”

in 2012-13. Cobbs was named Pac-12 Player of the Week on Jan. 13. Richard Solomon — senior forward — #35 — 6-foot-10; 235 pounds He is averaging 11.6 points and 10.7 rebounds per game. Solomon enters Saturday night’s game as one of just two players in one of the six BCS Conferences currently averaging a doubledouble. He is shooting 57.8 percent from the field and is leading the Pac-12 in rebounds with 204. In last year’s matchup against Arizona, Solomon was limited to six points, two rebounds, two blocks, an assist and a steal.

“OUR GOAL IS NOT TO BE UNDEFEATED SO MUCH AS TO COMPETE FOR THE PAC-12 CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP.”

Who to watch out for: Justin Cobbs — senior guard — #1 — 6-foot-3; 190 pounds Cobbs is averaging 15.5 points, 6 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game. He scored 21 points, three assists, three steals and a rebound in the Golden Bears’ 89-78 overtime loss to ASU on Wednesday. Cobbs scored 21 points, four assists, three rebounds and two steals in Cal’s upset of then-No. 7 Arizona last year. He did commit six turnovers, though, his third-highest total

STT FFF PICKS JAMES KELLEY

The Daily Wildcat The question on everyone’s minds: when does Arizona finally take the “L”? The Cal trip looked like a prime candidate, but after the Bears lost to ASU at home, I can confidently say, “It is not this day.” The Colorado and Oregon trips are scarier. Men’s basketball 72 California 67 What a great match up: Peyton Manning’s forehead vs. Richard Sherman’s mouth. Oh yeah, and the Denver Broncos’ offense and Seattle Seahawks’ defense are pretty good, too. She may want the “D” but this game will be all about the “O” — and the weather, of course.

Denver 31, Seattle 28 This game is so big for Syracuse that they’re selling T-shirts to commemorate it. SU is estimating an attendance of 36,000, which is better than some of its football games, even one against Pitt. The Orange will probably lose to the Dookies, but not in the dome, sweet dome. Syracuse 74, Duke 68 After the raucous atmosphere on The Farm on Wednesday night, the vibe of this game will be as different as Stanford and ASU’s academic reputations. So the Cardinal is ripe for the picking? Not so fast, my friend; Stanford has three days to get over the UA hangover. Stanford 60, ASU 55 DANIELA VIZCARRA

The Daily Wildcat It looks like Cal will continue its losing streak when it hosts the UA this Saturday. Cal hasn’t been able to beat a No. 1-ranked team since Aaron Gordon was in diapers. Those Golden Bears have no chance against the platinum Cats. UA 75, Cal 68 We have the best offense, the Broncos, and the best defense, the Seahawks, fighting for that Super Bowl championship. There hasn’t been a more perfect fight since the Sherman/Crabtree fiasco. Denver won’t be able to handle the dominance of Seattle’s defense or Richard Sherman’s mouth. Seattle 28, Denver 21 This game is the biggest thing to happen to Syracuse since Otto the Orange became its mascot. Syracuse will paint the town orange and watch the team mimic the Cats and remain undefeated. The Blue Devils are going to get crushed by this Orange. Syracuse 73, Duke 63 After beating Cal, ASU will try to take another win from a California team but the Cardinal doesn’t need to “fear the fork.” Stanford almost beat the UA but they will recover and get one win against an Arizona team this week. Stanford 65, ASU 55 ROBERTO PAYNE

The Daily Wildcat

Arizona might lose one or two games this season, but it won’t be this Saturday to Cal, especially after the Golden Bears just lost to ASU. The Cardiac Cats should play yet another close game and extend their winning streak to a ridiculous 22 games. Arizona 77, California 69 Arguably the best offense goes against the best defense in what should be a Super Bowl to remember. I’m taking Seattle’s Legion of Boom secondary over Peyton Manning and his seemingly endless offensive weapons. Prepare to hear “Omaha” about a million times this Sunday. Seattle 27, Denver 24 This Syracuse/Duke game is the one time that it’s acceptable to root for Duke. A Dookie win puts Arizona as the unquestioned best team in the country and the likely unanimous No.1-ranked team. Not to mention Arizona’s win over Duke would look that much better. Duke 68, Syracuse 64 Stanford showed a lot by playing tough throughout the game against the Wildcats. If the Cardinal brings the same effort and intensity against ASU as it did against Arizona, it’ll be enough to beat the struggling Sun Devils. Look for Dwight Powell to have a big game for Stanford. Stanford 74, ASU 59

Baseball hosts Meet the Team Saturday ROSE ALY VELENZUELA Arizona baseball will host its annual Meet the Team Day on Saturday at Hi Corbett Field. This event will allow the fans to meet the 2014 Wildcats and see them play before the season opener on Feb. 14. “We’re really just trying to get the fans to get involved,” head coach Andy Lopez said. “[Arizona Athletics] are doing a really good job planning [the event].” Fans will have opportunities they didn’t have during previous Meet the Team Days. Someone will be allowed to throw out the first pitch or even coach first base for an entire inning. During the third inning, a fan will get to hang out with Lopez inside the Arizona baseball dugout. “Someone’s going to sit with me for a couple innings while I call pitches,” Lopez said. “I’ll even ask them ‘what pitch do we call here’ and things like that.” A guest PA announcer will be chosen before the bottom of the fifth inning as well, which will be followed by an autograph session. Fans who attend Meet the Team Day will also have the first chance to take home the 2014 Arizona Baseball schedule posters.

What to watch:

look to continue success After a strong performance last weekend against No. 1 Oklahoma, Arizona gymnastics is looking to carry that momentum in to its meet with Washington this Saturday at 4 p.m. at McKale Center. After senior leader Jordan Williams slipped and fell off the bars and had to leave the meet last Saturday, the Gymcats rallied for a total score of 196.925, the fifthhighest score in program history. Head coach Bill Ryden said he expects Williams to perform on the vault, uneven bars and the balance beam this Saturday. “It’s definitely something we’re going to try to do,” junior Kristin Klarenbach said about carrying the momentum over. “We realize now that we have the potential to be a really great team, and I think that’s something that’s going to carry us forward.” Ryden said that in order to be successful this weekend, No. 13 Arizona will need to outperform its competition. “We need to make sure we do all the little things,” Ryden said, “that we hit all the handstands we’re supposed to hit, we stick all the dismounts and the landings we’re supposed to stick. … If we stay away from those types of errors, I feel confident in any meet we’re in.” Sophomore Shelby Edwards said the Gymcats are excited to compete again after last week’s historic meet and that they trained well this week. “Now we’re even more excited to see what we’re capable of,” Edwards said. “In the gym, we always look so good. We train to be competitive. We need to not overthink it and just do what we know how to do. If we can stay calm up there, we’ll be fine.” This is the Pink Meet and the first 500 fans will receive pink rally towels.

swimmers who have already qualified for the NCAA Championships, the meet is more about “executing race plans” than recording a personal best time. Senior sprinter Grace Finnegan said that she’s looking forward to the meet because it’s an opportunity to rebound from last week’s losses, and it’s the last time she will ever race in what has become a very familiar pool. “I’ve had an amazing four-year experience here,” Finnegan said. “The team has been through a lot over the last four years, but I really wouldn’t change it for anything.”

Wildcat Chat: hockey travels to No. 1 ASU

A & Q JOEY PUTRELO

For the first time in roughly three months, Arizona hockey will not be playing at the Tucson Convention Center. This weekend the No. 14 Wildcats (14-15-0, 5-6-0 WCHL) travel north to Tempe, Ariz., for a pair of games against No. 1 ASU (28-1-0, 10-1-0 WCHL). The Wildcats look to carry the momentum gained from sweeping San Diego State (10-12-0) last week when they try to break a 36-game losing streak to the Sun Devils. Puck drop will be tonight and tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. at Oceanside Arena. The Daily Wildcat spoke with Ansel Ivens-Anderson about the upcoming series against Arizona’s most bitter rival. Even when the Sun Devils were without superstars Brian McGinty, Danny McAuliffe, Sean Murphy, Alex Temby and Jordan Young, they were still able to sweep Arizona and outscore it 20-6 back on Dec. 6-7. Now that these guys are back, what do the Wildcats have to do to stay in the game?

We had a lot of guys out ourselves; we had a really short bench at the time. And even though we had some opportunities, we just didn’t play that well. We’re coming off a couple big wins, we’re confident in our ability and we have most of our team back and healthy. After a three-month-long home stand, you all have to travel not only for the games this weekend, but for practice up in Chandler, Ariz., as well. What adjustments have you and the rest of the team had to make to get back into traveling?

Obviously traveling and practicing … in Chandler isn’t ideal, but it’s something we’re all used to doing and something the organization has had to do for a while. It’s just a little adversity we have to battle through. It’s going to be different on the road. We won’t have the same support that we do when playing in front of the great crowds at the TCC, but we’re not worried about it. It’s always nice to go on the road and steal a win in front of somebody else’s home crowd.

Assuming they would be able to ice skate or pick it up fast, which Wildcat on a different sports team would you like to see suit up for UA hockey? That’s a tough one [laughs]. I’d have to say right now just because of how well they’re playing, it’d be great to have any of the basketball players on the ice, whether it’d be [T.J.] McConnell, [Nick] Johnson, [Brandon] Ashley or [Kaleb] Tarczewski. It would be very interesting to see them out there out of their element. Who’s your pick to win the Super Bowl? I have to go with the Broncos; I think it’s Peyton Manning’s time. I’m partial to them because I spent some time in Denver, so I enjoy it out there. But the Broncos have a great offense and I want to see [Richard] Sherman get more than he can handle.

Part of track and field squad heads to UW ZOE WOLKOWITZ Arizona men’s and women’s track and field teams will send a group of mostly distance runners to Seattle for the UW Invitational this weekend. The meet will take place on Friday and Saturday at Dempsey Indoor. The only two athletes competing who are not distance runners are Germe Poston and Daniel Whitham. Poston, a Washington native, will compete in the 200-meter dash and 60-meter sprint. Junior, Whitham, will compete in the shot put competition during his first season as a Wildcat. On the No. 8 men’s side for the distance runners, Matthew Beer, Dylan Hopper, Sam Macaluso,

Travis Thorne and Sam Willis are set to compete in the mile. Kenji Bierig, Lawi Lalang, Jonas Legernes and Thomas Valente will run the 3,000-meter race. For the women’s distance runners, Meg Bellino will run the 800-meter race. Kayla Ferron and Kate Penney will compete in the mile.
