Knowing how to interact with police could be crucial in possible DUI or MIP cases faced by students, legal experts say alison dorf


fter leaving a show at the Rialto Theatre, the only thing Adam had on his agenda was heading to a local taco shop for a late-night meal. That is, until an officer pulled him over. It began when Adam made a right turn at a red light without coming to a complete stop. “In all honesty, I was fine,” said Adam, who was a UA aeronautical and mechanical engineering senior at the time and requested his last name be withheld. “I didn’t feel like I was drunk,” Adam said. “I drove perfectly fine; even the cop said I was perfectly fine.” But before he knew it, Adam, who had had four beers in four hours, was cited by a Tucson Police Department officer for driving under the influence. Adam was then asked to perform a field sobriety test and Breathalyzer test before the officer drew his blood to be tested in a lab. “I was scared shitless,” Adam said. But he said he remained cooperative and answered the officer’s questions truthfully, including those about where he had been that night and whether he had consumed alcohol. Although Adam unknowingly passed his Breathalyzer and sobriety tests, he was cited for a DUI and told to call someone for a ride home. Two years later, after Adam had spent a total of around $10,000 for an attorney, a blood-testing expert, alcohol classes, alcohol therapy and a suspended license, his DUI case was thrown out. Adam was one of the lucky ones, legal experts say.

exercise your rights

“Both the university police and the Tucson Police Department are actively looking for underage drinkers, especially UAPD,” said Susan Ferrell, a legal services adviser at ASUA Legal Services. If a student chooses to engage in illegal activities, knowing how to interact with an officer can be crucial. The vast majority of evidence police use against an individual in a DUI case does not usually involve their statements, according to James Charnesky, a DUI and criminal defense attorney at Charnesky and Dieglio, LLC. Police can observe firsthand and testify in court about how a person drove, how they performed in a field sobriety test and the results of their blood and breath tests. The important thing is to not offer extra information, Charnesky said. In a traffic stop, the officer will always ask for identification, and usually proof of insurance and registration as well. After presenting the necessary documents, cooperation can be voluntary in some situations, according to Charnesky. “Your safest thing to do is invoke your rights, whether you have them or not,” he said. These rights include the rights to remain silent, to speak with an attorney and to be free of unreasonable search. If the officer smells any alcohol, they will likely begin asking incriminating questions. The individual can immediately invoke their rights. “It’s invoking that attorney right off the bat, which is what protects anything that comes out of your mouth after that particular point,” Charnesky said. “If you just say, ‘I don’t feel comfortable answering that question,’ the officer can go into court and testify … That doesn’t sound as good as the officer not being able to say a damn thing because you invoked your right.” The individual should also always be polite and honest. It is harder for an attorney to defend someone who lied to the police, Charnesky said. “There are ways to invoke your rights in a respectful manner,” said Dina Dieglio, a criminal defense attorney at Charnesky and Dieglio, LLC. “It doesn’t mean you can’t say anything to the police, but you certainly have the right to not incriminate yourself.” Once a person has invoked their right to remain silent and to an attorney, even if they don’t have an attorney, police officers can no longer interrogate them, according to Charnesky. However, some may still try, as officers can lie to get the information they need to know. Officers have a certain amount of leeway to search a vehicle without a warrant or permission in the right circumstances, according to Charnesky. If the officer smells intoxicants, they are allowed to do at least a cursory search — meaning a search of anything in reasonable reach of the driver — and a patdown. If an officer begins asking if they

can search anywhere else, the answer should always be no, Charnesky said. They will then need to obtain a search warrant. Legally, a person does not have the right to refuse a field sobriety test. However, the officer cannot physically force them to take it. “The only reason they’re doing that is to gather evidence against you,” Charnesky said. On the other hand, if a person knows they haven’t been drinking or are under the legal limit and are not a minor, taking these tests may eliminate officer suspicion, said Sgt. Maria Hawke of TPD. A Breathalyzer is not necessarily as accurate as a blood test, but agreeing to it may prevent the officer from getting a warrant and taking blood, Charnesky said. Not submitting to a blood test could also result in the officer using whatever reasonable force they feel is necessary. Even if the DUI is a misdemeanor offense, the courts consider drunk drivers to be loaded weapons driving on the street, and have given officers a lot of reign to extract any evidence they need, he added. Ultimately, the best thing for an individual to do is avoid drinking Source: DEAN OF and driving altogether and invoke STUDENTS OFFICE, UAPD their rights immediately when pulled over.

knowing the consequences

One of the biggest issues UAPD sees among students is underage drinking and narcotic or marijuana use, said Joe Bermudez, a UAPD crime prevention officer. “There might be certain weekends during the year where we can place additional officers on the streets just to specifically look for alcohol violations,” Bermudez said. If an officer thinks a student may have been drinking underage, they will look for signs, including red, bloodshot or watery eyes, the smell of liquor around them or slurring and swaying, he explained. If they determine the student is drinking underage, the officer will then begin their investigation. “[The individual is] not free to leave … and we want to ask questions about it,” Bermudez said. “Even though they may not have the alcohol in their hands per se … the body is still considered a container … so they can be arrested for that.” If an officer chooses to arrest, they will usually issue a “cite and release” and give the student a citation to sign. Signing it is not the equivalent of admitting guilt; it is simply a promise to appear in court. The individual will then be released on that promise. If the individual does not sign the citation, they can be taken into custody. In most cases, officers will usually give a citation rather than taking the individual to jail. “Politeness goes a long way,” Hawke said. “Fighting with officers can pretty much guarantee you that you’ll go to jail, with probably more charges than what you would’ve originally had … We strongly suggest that you not.” Ultimately, it comes down to making good choices, she said. If an individual is not 21, then the law says that they cannot drink. If they are caught doing so, they need to be an adult and accept the responsibility for making a bad decision and be held accountable for it, she added. “Our hope would be that at some point they [students] come to the realization that we’re not out to get them,” Hawke said. “Our main goal is always to educate the public; however, when a law is broken and needs to be enforced, it’s our responsibility to do that.”

Belt it out: Karaoke in Tucson

Kyle wasson/arizona Daily Wildcat

The Best Western Royal Sun hotel bar is one of Tucson’s best karaoke bars. Fridays and Saturdays are the most popular nights at the bar.

kyle wasson/arizona Daily Wildcat

Jeff Hewitt, a UA graduate student, belts it out in the Best Western Royal Sun hotel bar.

From hotel bars to upscale sushi restaurants to Fourth Avenue, karaoke is best with friends and a few drinks cecelia marshall


mpty orchestra, the literal translation of karaoke, began spreading from Japan throughout the world in the 1970s. In the beginning, karaoke was used to accompany musical artists, but after it was advertised to the public, karaoke quickly became a social activity for everyone, no matter their level of talent and ability. Generally, there are three types of people who go to karaoke bars. The first is the cynical member of the peanut gallery who sits in the back corner hollering obscenities and inappropriate phrases to throw off the performance of the onstage talent. By the end of the night, their loud heckling leaves their voice just as hoarse as the performers’. The second type is the way-too-good performer who has made it their mission to blow everyone out of the water with their rendition of “Wind Beneath My Wings.” But karaoke is not a talent competition. It’s hard to get these people to stop performing after just one song, and by the end of the night their friends have dispersed and left them. Warning: you do not want one of these in your group.

The third type is the liquor-swigging, swayingto-the-beat and using-the-microphone-stand-asa-crutch kind of person. By the time they have the liquid confidence they need to go onstage, you can’t even understand their slurred words. They become their group of friends’ entertainment for the night, prompting inside jokes but annoying the rest of the audience with their disruptive laughter. Whether you identify with a certain type of karaokegoer or not, you should give the local karaoke scene a try. Karaoke is just not the same at home with a video game or a couple of friends who chuckle but secretly pray for the agony to stop. Where is the audience to make your performance exciting? Public scrutiny or support is what makes the night memorable, for better or for worse. Just be sure to pick your song carefully. Don’t make everyone listen to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” for the umpteenth time, and stay away from mood-dampeners like Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On.” This weekend, have a legendary karaoke night at one of the bars below.

Atoms For Peace team up on ‘Amok’ ALEX WHELAN



ATOMS FOR PEACE, an experimental rock supergroup, is led by legendary frontman Thom Yorke of Radiohead.

f you’re willing to put aside the fact that Atoms For Peace sound almost exactly like you’d expect them to, Amok comes across remarkably well. A supergroup in its personnel, if not its execution, Atoms For Peace bring the singular decade-long partnership between Radiohead singer/songwriter Thom Yorke and Radiohead/ Ultraista producer Nigel Godrich into a new age. The bleeps and rickety drum samples found on Radiohead’s 2011 album The King of Limbs were merely a hint of the Afrorhythms that dominate tracks like Amok’s “Default.� Coasting along on Yorke’s soaring vocals and a processed bassline right from Godrich’s Ultraista project, “Default� almost comes off as too safe for the famously experimental duo. Maybe it is because both Yorke and Godrich have so thoroughly accomplished the sound of “Default� before that Amok doesn’t truly hit its stride until its third song, “Ingenue.� With “Ingenue,� Atoms for Peace sound far more willing to explore other facets of their sound alongside the trademarks of Yorke and Godrich, including a wonderful synth sample that writhes about Yorke’s plaintive vocals and the very welcome basslines of Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea. If there is one complaint about the album, it is that Flea isn’t spotlighted enough. Even so, the band comes up with enough wild sounds to make any Radiohead rival jealous, like the hiccupping keyboards of album highlight “Dropped� or breakdown of “Unless,� which features multiple recordings of wailing Yorke battling throughout the song. Perhaps even more than Radiohead has in recent years, Atoms For Peace manages to complement the astounding flexibility of Yorke’s upper

range, giving his inimitable voice real depth. The second half of Amok doesn’t drastically vary the sounds established by “Ingenue� and “Dropped,� though there are certainly moments that stand out as adventurous. “Judge Jury and Executioner� finds Flea’s bass tone sharing the stage with, of all things, an acoustic guitar. The combination is noteworthy simply because of the electronic, sampling-heavy feel that permeates the rest of the album. Yet the song still smacks of classic Godrich production, its off-kilter handclaps serving as a resonant counterpoint to Yorke’s ethereal presence. Amok’s penultimate track, “Reverse Running,� also makes excellent use of a guitar in the form of a lead that dances along in the right speaker with the fervor of Radiohead’s best moments. Halfway through the track, Yorke even drops himself into a self-sampling hall of mirrors a la Kid A’s (2000) “Everything In Its Right Place.� “Reverse Running� never sits still for more than a minute before breaking off into something like a buzzing cacophony. As such, it handily earns a place as perhaps the best Atoms For Peace song. That is, of course, excepting the majestic title track that closes out the record. Amok features so many layers of sound and instruments that each successive listen further reveals just how meticulously produced it is — think piano crescendos, a small militia of synthesizer tones and uniquely restrained Yorke vocals that sound at once defeated and peaceful. Amok may not revolutionize the industry, but it stands as a worthy testament to the powerful vision of two men and a record collection.


Danish punk stars Iceage bring heat on ‘You’re Nothing’



ometimes all it takes is the whine of a guitar firing up to set the tone for half an hour of music. Whether it is anticipating a bigger drop or groove in the music, or merely defining a band’s attitude, opening with feedback is a sure-fire way of orienting a listener in the space of the album. Danish punk crew Iceage leads off You’re Nothing’s first track, “Ecstasy,� with the screech of guitar feedback, but the noise never gives way to the dimensions of the song — the noise is the song. The opening of “Ecstasy� ripples throughout all of You’re Nothing. Beyond the song’s demented heavy dance music and shouted chorus of “I can’t take this pressure!� Iceage harnesses its chaotic whirlwind in new and inventive ways. On the poppier side of things are tracks like “Burning Hand� and “In Haze,� both of which betray Iceage’s unabashed love for melody that lurks beneath its emo-influenced guitar churns and half-time drum freakouts. Conversely, You’re Nothing has no shortage of punkier fare like “It Might Hit First� or the phenomenal “Coalition,�

in which lead singer Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s frenzied screams recall a young Bob Mould or Henry Rollins. Though it may be reductive to compare Rønnenfelt’s style to the greats of ’80s hardcore, the singer’s malleability and charisma really do evoke the glory days of working-class punk rock. This isn’t even to mention how great a pop-punk singa-long sounds in the hands of Iceage, who absolutely nails the anthemic qualities of highlight “Awakeâ€? in a guitar riff that would make any nihilistic teen jealous. For an album with 12 unique songs in less than 30 minutes, Iceage is shooting for a punk masterpiece, and it’s not far off the mark, with both hardcore tracks like “Rodfaestetâ€? and moodier songs like “Morals.â€? The Danish group is so conscious of the album experience it is crafting that it even throws in a song named “Interludeâ€? for good measure. It is fair to say that most people listening to a 29-minute album wouldn’t necessarily have the highest hopes for an “Interludeâ€? slotted as early as third on the record, but Iceage manages to justify the existence of its instrumental

feedback loops as part of a cycle of songs. It is clear that an incredible amount of thought went into the creation of You’re Nothing, from the lyrics to the spectacularly strange chord changes. At the end of the day, a few 21-year-olds from Denmark are quietly posing a hostile takeover of American punk music. It remains to be seen where this young group will go next, but in the meantime, You’re Nothing is more than enough reason to believe in something — even if it’s nothing.

When it comes to the Tucson nightlife, most students choose to spend their evenings on Fourth Avenue, despite the fact that downtown is only about a 10-minute walk farther. Mislinski explained that he and his fellow restaurant owners are doing their best to make downtown approachable with reasonable pricing and good food. He said he believes that the August opening of the Cadence, a student apartment complex, will completely change the downtown dynamic. Hub attracts customers primarily by cultivating a lighthearted and enjoyable atmosphere. The concept of the restaurant centers on childhood memories and experiences. According to Mislinski, the building that Hub now occupies is over 100 years old, which got him thinking about the idea of incorporating ice cream into the bar/restaurant. Frozen yogurt was the original plan, he said, but he wanted something more traditional — something old-fashioned, like ice cream. “It’s an emotional connection to your childhood,” Mislinski said. Ice cream flavors offered at Hub include s’mores, salted caramel, blueberry malt and chocolate peanut butter cup, and of course there’s a wide selection of toppings as well. Along with an assortment of food and ice cream options, Hub also offers dozens of draft beers, wines and cocktails. Mislinski explained that going out to dinner as a child was a memorable experience. The time he spent eating seafood with his grandmother influenced the menu options he chose for Hub, like the lobster roll, crab cakes and shrimp cocktail. As for his next business venture, Mislinski is planning to open a bar/diner-style restaurant downtown that serves comfort foods like dumplings and matzo ball soup. The concept of the restaurant is going to be “Asian, Jewish, Polish,” Mislinski said, adding that there will be no servers. Customers will simply come in, sit at the bar and order their food. If it’s anything like Hub, it will definitely be worth a visit.

HUB RESTAURANT AND ICE CREAMERY, owned by Kade Mislinski, is one of three restaurant concepts that Mislinski has launched in Tucson.

ub Restaurant and Ice Creamery is all about bringing people together. Located on East Congress Street downtown, Hub is a restaurant, a bar and an ice cream parlor all wrapped up in one. Its atmosphere is comfy and cozy, old-fashioned yet modern with red and white couches and brick walls draped with ropes. “There’s something for everyone,” said Kade Mislinski, owner of Hub as well as Playground and Lulu’s Shake Shoppe. Mislinski is a UA alumnus who studied political science, but he said he’s always been a student of marketing and branding. Mislinski described the food at Hub as “American classic, vintagemodern food.” From salmon to veggie burgers to patty melts to ice cream, Hub covers all the bases. Mislinski said he’s seen families and people of all ages meet there to enjoy a meal. “It’s more of a chill hangout than anything else,” said Isaac Cox, a journalism and creative writing senior, adding that Hub has “a great atmosphere” and “awesome service.” Mislinski said that it’s about the experience and having fun. He described the relationship between downtown establishments as symbiotic, saying his relationship with the Rialto Theatre is very important, as people often crowd into Hub or Playground after an evening concert. And Hub does not serve coffee, so Sparkroot Coffee Bar and Fare across the street doesn’t lose out on business. “We have a mutual friendship,” said Becca Hammen, a server at Sparkroot. Sparkroot owner Ari Shapiro is good friends with Mislinski, Hammen added.

Local artist Adam Rodriguez lets his light shine through



he most vibrant people sometimes wear the darkest of shades. Dressed in dusky jeans, a worn black vest, dark Southwestern boots and an oversized leather jacket, Adam Rodriguez is a local artist whose work evokes both wonderment and deep introspection. Rodriguez may wear all black, but his art is a colorful manifestation of his soul on canvas. Rodriguez’s art is an outlet for his creativity, fueled by the need to translate his emotions, sentiments, losses and experiences into truthful reflection. His life is his art and his art is his life. “I use my art kind of like a diary, but it’s a painting, a collage, clothing montages,” Rodriguez said. “It’s just my projection of what’s happening in my life.” Rodriguez will graduate from the Southwest University of Visual Arts with a degree in advertising marketing this May. He has already established a large creative body of work, quite a feat considering that just a few years ago he was on track for a completely different career. Rodriguez, a first-generation college student, started out trying to secure a stable career; he was going to nursing school. Life would have been relatively easy, but then fate intervened with an act of whimsy. “One day I went into my roommate’s room and there was this box with all this paint in it,” Rodriguez said, “so I stole it all and just started painting. That’s when I first fell in love with art, and I haven’t really stopped since then.” His path diverted, Rodriguez emerged as an artist — but he paid a price. He dropped out of nursing school. His heat was shut off, then his electricity. “I’ve been struggling with being a struggling artist,” Rodriguez said. “It’s really difficult; all your money is invested in your art, your time, everything.” But Rodriguez has not been deterred. He embraces his economic hardship as the impetus to expand the boundaries of his creativity. He uses whatever materials he has close at hand, like skateboard grip tape, pillowcases and old clothing, to create explosively colorful, textured collages of portraits and captured moments. His art is reminiscent of Henri Matisse, with the absurdity of Pablo Picasso, but Rodriguez makes it decidedly his own by deriving his inspiration from his own life. “I think that’s true soul,” he said. “That’s honest, and that’s real. I live it, so I want to illustrate it.” Rodriguez reworks his life on canvas by painting, reshaping and piecing together materials that have sentimental value to him, so that his art shows his memories in composite. Rodriguez and his art are one and the same: avant-garde and unpredictable. Rodriguez said he plans to move to New York immediately following graduation. He wants to experience more, expand his art and become immersed in the artistic Mecca that is the East Coast. But his artistic roots are in Tucson. No matter what happens in New York, he will remember where he started as a struggling young artist. “It was a barrio house … a big adobe house with these high ceilings, and I just started throwing art shows there,” Rodriguez said. “That’s when I sold my first painting … I paid my light bill.” Through art that carries the whimsy and playfulness of his ambition, Rodriguez has established himself as an artist with soul. No matter what criticism, failure, rejection or heartbreak he may face in the future, Rodriguez said that as long as he has hands to work, he will continue to create. “If I don’t make art, I feel lost,” Rodriguez said. “I don’t feel KELSEE BECKER/ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT human. It’s part of me.” ADAM RODRIGUEZ went from a nursing student to an artist, but not without a price.

Wildcats drop 5-0 to Oklahoma


REDSHIRT SOPHOMORE Chelsea Suitos scored two runs in Arizona’s win over Long Beach State on Thursday night. The Wildcats split the day with a 5-0 loss to No. 2 Oklahoma, who eliminated the Wildcats from the playoffs the last two seasons.

EVAN ROSENFELD Last December, after a breakout freshman year in which she earned first team All Pac-12 honors while hitting .331 with 19 homeruns and 55 RBI, shortstop Shelby Pendley unexpectedly decided to leave Arizona’s softball team before the second year of her collegiate career. Tonight, Pendley defeated her former team, the Wildcats, 5-0 as a member of her new club, the No. 2 Oklahoma Sooners — the same team that sent the Wildcats home from the NCAA Super Regionals last year, robbing them of a Women’s College World Series berth. Despite the waves caused by Pendley’s relocation, head coach Mike Candrea pointed out that the Wildcats came here to do work and stay focused. “We played against Oklahoma today, not Shelby Pendley,” Candrea said. “She’s there,

and that’s the way it is.” The two rivals played today in the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, previously the Cathedral City Classic, in Palm Springs, Calif. This trip marked Arizona’s seventh to the Classic, with a 27-4 record all-time. Last year, the Cats went 5-1 in the tournament, losing only to No. 13 Georgia. Junior pitcher Estela Piñon was able to stay competitive with Oklahoma’s offense in the first few innings, getting out of trouble without allowing any runs in the first frame. After three innings of scoreless play, Oklahoma struck first, cashing in on a sacrifice fly to make it 1-0 in the top of the fourth. Arizona’s offense seemed uncharacteristically stagnant and was unable to support Piñon, producing just two hits through the first four innings and three overall in the game. Junior left fielder Kelsey Rodriguez led the Wildcats’ attack with two hits while freshman

pitcher Nancy Bowling relieved Piñon and helped her own cause by collecting a single through the left side in the top of the fifth. Arizona was shut out for the first time since game one of last year’s Super Regionals against the Sooners. “In the game against Oklahoma, I think we could have gotten a lot more hits,” senior Brigette Del Ponte said. “We made some mental errors on the bases as well as on the field, which didn’t help us, and it should have been a closer game,” Del Ponte added. “But overall, I think we played well tonight. We just have to work on striking in the first three innings as opposed to the last.” In the second half of the doubleheader, Arizona battled Long Beach State in a close game before finding itself down 3-1 with three outs remaining. After two strikeouts in the top of the seventh, sophomores Chelsea Suitos and

Hallie Wilson were walked to bring up Del Ponte, who subsequently doubled in a run to tighten the score to 2-3. After Rodriguez walked to load the bases, sophomore Chelsea Goodacre doubled in Del Ponte and Wilson to put the Wildcats up 4-3 in a come-from-behind performance. “I was very pleased tonight,” Candrea said. “We couldn’t really get a whole lot offensively going tonight, but I thought coming from behind was a huge victory for us. We had one inning that we got in a bit of a jam, but I thought we had good performances all around.” Junior pitcher Shelby Babcock provided a strong outing for the Wildcats, allowing three earned runs and seven hits while striking out four and walking three in five innings pitched. “I’m happy that we won the second game tonight,” Rodriguez said. “We learned a lot, which was a positive outcome for tonight.”

‘Small ball’ key for UA Frosh big men in second weekend have had to ‘grow up fast’ LUKE DAVIS

Arizona (4-1) returns to the friendly confines of Hi Corbett field Friday night for a three-game weekend series with San Jose State (2-2). The Wildcats ended their 14-game winning streak this past Tuesday as they lost on the road to Long Beach State. Arizona fought back in the second game of the two-game series to split the series with the Dirtbags. The defending champs will send ace pitcher Konner Wade (1-0) out to the mound Friday in hopes of starting a new winning streak. The Arizona offense that ranked first in the Pac-12 in 2012 is off to an impressive start this season. Five games into the 2013 season, the Wildcats have a team batting average of .301 and have received contributions from their entire lineup. “I might be biased, being a former offensive player, but in my mind hitting takes more time to get settled in with throughout a 56-game season than pitching,” head coach Andy Lopez said. “Pitching, you have more control of what goes on.” Last year’s squad finished its national championship season with a team batting average of .329 and the second-most runs in the country (478). Lopez has repeatedly stated in the past month that he in no way expects or hopes the team to be playing at its peak this early into the season, but he has been satisfied with how this “small ball” team has started the new season, including the freshmen. First baseman Ryan Koziol,

shortstop Kevin Newman and left fielder Scott Kingery have led the group of young Wildcats. The three have a combined .321 batting average and have contributed for 11 of Arizona’s 50 runs through their first five games. Koziol, who only has 10 at-bats this season, leads all Wildcats with eight runs batted in. Arizona’s opponent this weekend is off to an average 2-2 start, but lost its most recent game 22-4 to UC Davis. Also early into their season, the Spartans have been carried by the heart of their lineup. SJSU’s two best hitters, Nick Schulz and Jacob Valdez, have contributed to more than half of the Spartans’ runs and will be expected to overcome Wade. In his only start and appearance on the season, Wade shut down the less-than-admirable Coppin State offense. The junior struggled to keep his pitch count down but only allowed two Eagles to reach base in the 6.1 innings he pitched last Friday. Wade admitted to being tired after the game but said he’d definitely be ready for his next start. With regard to games two and three of the series, Arizona will most likely throw fellow junior pitcher James Farris (1-0) on Saturday, but the final game on Sunday is still up in the air. Last Sunday, redshirt junior Stephen Manthei started but couldn’t make it out of the third inning. Manthei got the opportunity to regain the coach’s trust on Wednesday when Lopez brought in the right-hander in the sixth inning of a 3-1 game in an attempt to secure the lead. Manthei kept the lead and pitched another .2 of an inning.



ARIZONA’S FRIDAY starter Konner Wade (48) pitched 6.1 innings of one-hit ball in last weekend’s season opener, earning his first win of the season.

The No. 12 Arizona men’s basketball team is made up of a careful blend of youth and experience, as a veteran backcourt plays alongside a talented trio of freshmen frontcourt players. Or at least that used to be the case. With the regular season winding down for the Wildcats and a rematch with Washington State (11-16, 2-12 Pac-12) at 1 p.m. in McKale Center on Saturday, the term “freshmen” is no longer accurate. The big men might still be young, but their experience at Arizona (22-4, 10-4) has made them into seasoned players. “The freshmen aren’t freshmen anymore,” senior Solomon Hill said in Tuesday’s press conference. “They’ve played enough games to be considered almost one of the older guys. “With a program like Arizona you have to grow up fast,” he added. “I really think they’re starting to understand that even with our early-on success, to sustain it and have further success in the tournament, [effort] has to be there.” Hill compared forwards Grant Jerrett and Brandon Ashley and center Kaleb Tarczewski to the much smaller and slightly older sophomore Nick Johnson. All season, the Wildcats have considered Johnson a veteran on the team, despite the fact that the guard has just one season of college basketball under his belt. Tarczewski said he thinks the freshmen have finally turned the corner to becoming veterans as well. “We’ve played so many games so far. I think we’re all really kind of experienced more toward the sophomore year,” he said. “We’re just trying to go out and play our game, play team basketball and work as hard as we can. That’s all we can do.” Tarczewski and Ashley’s recent performances seem to support that idea. While neither has broken out in the way some expected the fivestar recruits to, they’ve both started to find their offensive touch. Ashley has scored in doubledigits in five of his last eight games; Tarczewski’s done it four times during that stretch. Even more


ARIZONA FRESHMAN center Kaleb Tarczewski has started all 26 games for the Wildcats this season.

importantly, though, the 7-foot center has played more efficiently, making 12 of his last 18 shots over a four-game span. Things haven’t come as easily to Jerrett. He has averaged just 3.7 points per game in Pac-12 play on 32.1 percent shooting, and he hasn’t been a force rebounding, either, with 3.5 per game. Jerrett hasn’t been the only one plagued by inconsistency, as each member of the trio has struggled on occasion. This doesn’t come as a surprise to Miller, either. “Each of them has taken their turn of having a game that isn’t as good, which makes perfect sense,” Miller said Tuesday. “Inconsistency is all a part of a freshman’s season.” But as Miller and Hill made clear, the big men shouldn’t consider

Senior captain Brian Slugocki ‘big key in transition’ for UA hockey’s move into relevance Dougall, who was an Icecat captain for two seasons. “It speaks to the character of Brian really, the type of kid he is. He put a lot into the program.” Brian Slugocki wasn’t even sure he was going to Slugocki said that he and Brady Lefferts, play hockey when he came to the UA, but he ended who graduated last year, did everything from up being arguably the most important Arizona interviewing coaches to designing uniforms to player ever. setting practice schedules during the transition The senior and three-year captain leads the UA in 2011.

As Arizona “We stayed over the summer and got a lot of stuff Wildcats club hockey president in 2011, Slugocki led done,” Slugocki said. “It was definitely a stressful the change from the Icecats to Wildcats. “He’s been a big key in this transition, not only as time in my life, but I was glad I was able to get through it.” a leader on the ice, but a leader off the ice as well,” Slugocki is third on the team in points with 45, head coach Sean Hogan said. “A guy that scores like two behind the leader, and he has 20 assists. he does will definitely be missed.” Slugocki Arizona missed had three hat the national tricks this year, tournament including one for the seventh against then-No. straight season, 8 Oakland and but it does have one against then15 wins this year, No. 10 Liberty. its most since “I wanted to 2007-08.

themselves freshmen anymore. “I talk to them about that all the time,” Miller said after the Washington game. “The amount of minutes they play, the practices they’ve been a part of and they’ve played against virtually every style you can in a season. “As we head toward the end of February, they aren’t freshmen anymore. They know how to do things, and we’re counting on them.” At this point in the season, Arizona has seen every Pac-12 team at least once. Saturday will be the frontcourt’s second go-around with forward Brock Motum and the Cougars. While low-post scoring won’t be at a premium for the Wildcats, shutting down and outrebounding Motum will be.

Added urgency for seniors

While Saturday’s game might be seem like a replay of just three weeks ago, when Arizona beat Washington State 79-65 in Pullman, Wash., there will be one small tweak: Senior Kevin Parrom has replaced Ashley in the starting lineup. The move is about getting experience in the lineup and curbing some of the slow starts the Wildcats have had lately, not downgrading Ashley’s status. Besides, if the freshmen are now sophomores, seniors like Parrom and Hill are starting to enter the twilight of their career. “We have a lot to gain and a lot to lose,” Parrom said Tuesday. “It only makes sense to play all three of us. We can play the hardest and we have a lot to prove … We’re at that point of the season where it’s our last goaround.” The dwindling college eligibility for the seniors had Hill questioning Arizona’s effort before the Washington game. While the 70-52 win left him and the rest of the Wildcats feeling satisfied, Hill still stressed the importance of staying focused for Washington State. But win or lose, his time is starting to run out. The clock is running, and it has all of the seniors playing with an added sense of desire. Because of that, Hill likes having Parrom in the starting lineup and letting the now-“sophomores” continue to develop. “We can’t come back; there’s no do-over for us,” Parrom said about the seniors. “The freshmen will have another chance to do this, so [Miller] puts the guys on the floor that want it the most.”
