GOP candidates say states should oversee education By Savannah Martin and Stewart McClintic DAILY WILDCAT

MESA, Ariz. — The final four GOP presidential hopefuls tackled education, contraception and immigration at the CNN Arizona Republican debate on Wednesday at the Mesa Arts Center. This was the last GOP debate before the Republican primaries in Arizona and Michigan, which will take place on Tuesday. A poll — conducted by CNN, Time and the Opinion Research Corporation — released shortly before the debate showed former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney would

The race in Arizona

The UA may have to keep the bongs at bay, as a new bill would make medical marijuana on campus illegal, even if it is allowed in the state. The university already bans medical marijuana on campus in order to receive federal funding under the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989. House Bill 2349 would make it illegal for the ban not to exist. Institutions of higher education cannot receive funds or financial assistance under any federal program unless there is a ban on use of illicit drugs and abuse of alcohol on campus, according to the UA drug free statement. While this is something the UA is already doing, there could be changes in how the drug ban is enforced, said Joe Bermudez, a crime prevention officer with the University of Arizona Police Department. Bermudez said he is unsure if students with medical marijuana cards would face criminal charges, as it would depend on the exact wording of the law. Students found with medical marijuana on campus will be instructed to dispose of it and the incident will result in a Code of Conduct violation. Residence Life and the Dean of Students Office would deal with the student, Bermudez said. If someone is caught with marijuana on campus without a medical marijuana card, he or she will be arrested for possession and could face criminal charges, Bermudez added. Max Ambrose, a political science senior, was prescribed a medical marijuana card to help with his migraines. He has had the card for a month and says he uses marijuana frequently during the week.

The La Aldea graduate housing complex, pictured above, was one of two UA residence halls to be earn EPA ENERGY STAR certification for superior energy efficiency.

By Savannah Martin DAILY WILDCAT

Two UA residence halls became the first in the Pac-12 to earn the EPA’s “ENERGY STAR certification for superior energy efficiency” this month after a nearly two-year effort

to brighten the UA’s future in sustainability. The dorms, Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall and La Aldea graduate housing complex, perform in the top 25 percent of similar buildings nationwide, according to Jill Ramirez, coordinator of sustainability

education. They also meet the energy performance levels set by the Environmental Protection Agency. “There’s a lot of publicity in some of our fellow schools around their commitment to sustainability,” Ramirez said. “We don’t get quite as much publicity, but we’re doing just as much, if not more. It (the certification) goes to show that our buildings, not just the people inside the buildings, are more sustainable than a lot of campuses across the country.” ENERGY STAR is a label the EPA created in 1992 in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote energy efficiency, according to the EPA website. The label can be found on more than 60 different kinds of products, including refrigerators, computers and televisions. It also recognizes businesses and buildings for sustainable energy management.

UA creates new data mining center Eller College to help businesses improve social media reach By Yara Askar DAILY WILDCAT

A service created within the Eller College of Management will analyze consumer blog posts and then provide feedback to businesses, helping them improve their online social media presence. INSITE, a new organization, will do this by collecting data from social media sites and mining through the information to understand what it’s saying, according to Sudha Ram, the creator and director on INSITE and a professor of management information systems. This data will help companies improve their marketing of the products they offer and improve services for customers, Ram added. Different algorithms are used to automatically collect and sort data to process different patterns of information, said Paulo Goes, co-director of INSITE and department

ENERGY STAR FROM PAGE 1

Ramirez said she began pursing the distinction in August 2010 and started by gathering energy consumption data from 25 residence halls, including about a year’s worth of utility bills. This information was used to calculate each building’s score on the EPA’s energy performance scale. If a building scored higher than 75 it was eligible to receive the ENERGY STAR rating. La Aldea received a score of 91 out 100 and Arizona-Sonora received a 76, Ramirez said. Originally, seven residence halls qualified for the certificate, but in order to receive the official rating an architect or engineer had to audit the halls to verify their efficiency. Three dorms, Maricopa Residence Hall, Arizona-Sonora and La Aldea were audited. The buildings were tested in three areas: air quality, thermal comfort and illumination, Ramirez said. The architect was Nader Chalfoun, a professor of architecture and director of the House Energy Doctor program. Chalfoun, along with his students, audited the three dorms as part of a class project, using each building as a “laboratory for investigation,” he said. The students interviewed each of the building managers, who provided information regarding how often each dorm operated and during what seasons, according to Chalfoun. Then, the class examined the

data, Ram said. “We are unique in the UA with our capability to train the next generation of students that come out of the UA,” Ram said. “We want to train (students) in understanding how to use social media and how to use techniques within technology that is coming out today.” Not only will the center track data from social media sites and analyze consumer’s feedback, but it will also be used in healthcare and certain supply chains, according to Goes. There will be a membership fee for companies to pay in exchange for INSITE to “data mine” their companies, Goes added. Nine faculty members will be working on different projects and a graduate program of about 100 students will have the opportunity to be engaged as well. No companies have signed up for GORDON BATES / DAILY WILDCAT membership with INSITE just yet, Sudha Ram, a management information systems professor, regularly uses computers in her classroom to analyze social media however. and business intelligence. “I am very excited, we have a unique talent and experts in the head of management information only to mine data deposits, but also Ram.

interior and exterior of the buildings. Outside, the students looked at characteristics like shade, lighting and landscaping that can affect a building’s energy consumption. Interior observations included how spaces were occupied, how temperatures were controlled and how much the residents used natural daylight versus artificial illumination. “Some curtains stay in place for years and nobody touches them, depending on the building and the students,” Chalfoun said. Finally, Chalfoun’s students examined each dorm’s mechanical system, or what Chalfoun called “the heart of the building.” This is the part of the building that produces energy, either independently or through one of the UA’s three power plants. At the end of the audit process, Chalfoun’s class compiled its data into detailed reports that included ways the buildings’ energy performance could be improved, Chalfoun said. The results of the reports were then submitted to the EPA to determine whether the dorms would receive ENERGY STAR certification. In total, the audit process cost $25,000, according to Ramirez. The benefits, however, outweighed the price — the audits not only helped the two dorms earn their superior ratings, but they helped Residence Life understand what it can do to make its buildings even more energy efficient, Ramirez said. The certificates will be used to help market the dorms to future residents, according to Amanda Brobbel, coordinator of graduate and

international housing. The ENERGY STAR rating not only speaks to a building’s efficiency, she said, but it also says a lot about the quality of life for both present and future residents. “I think the foundation of sustainable living is about better communities,” Brobbel said. “The idea is if you’re living sustainably, you’re living with an eye to not only the current people who occupy this planet, but the future people who will occupy the planet.” The fact that two of UA’s dorms have earned ENERGY STAR certification proves the university is dedicated to creating a sustainable campus, according to Natalie Lucas, a junior studying environmental science and philosophy, politics, economics and law and the co-director of Students for Sustainability. “We are ready to take on that challenge and we are ready to pursue it even more,” she said in reference to making the UA a greener university. “Sustainability is definitely starting to be one of the things the UA can be proud of.”

lives off campus, the drug ban does not pose an issue for him. “If you’re a student living on campus it could be a problem, because you have nowhere to keep it legally,” Ambrose said. “I’m just glad I’m not someone who has to deal with that problem.” Ted Vogt, a state representative from Legislative District 30, voted against the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act and supports the bill to ban medical marijuana on college campuses. Although he feels the bill will not have much of an impact with drug bans in place, it would help ensure that federal funding is not taken away.

“We want to make sure our laws are tailored to narrowly focus on the issue,” Vogt said. “There may be a campus out there that decides ‘to heck with the money, we want to have medical marijuana on our campus.’” The bill has not gone to the floor yet, as it was recently changed to exclude private campuses. “I personally think marijuana isn’t a big deal. It really does help when you do have problems, especially when you have your medical license,” said Jessica Olson, a psychology sophomore, who was prescribed a medical marijuana card to help treat depression and an eating disorder. “I do see why people don’t want it on campus, but if you do need it I feel like it’s just like any other drug,” Olson said. “Like Ritalin, if you need it you should be able to access it.”

informed of decisions in a timely manner and that enough time is provided for appeals when accommodations are denied. Each year people ask for extra arrangements for the LSAT and the council makes a decision on a case-by-case basis. Wendy Margolis, the Law School Admission Council’s director of communications, said the council believes the American Bar Association’s commission based their report on “outdated and incomplete information” and considers the resolution an “oversimplification of the issues regarding what is needed of the test takers.” “A lot of attention is being paid to a small number of people who are suing us about it,” Margolis said. “There are a high number of requests that are addressed in one way or another and the ABA is only focusing on high profile law suits. They do not seem to be taking account of all the facts.” The council has been sued many times by test takers who have been denied accommodations, such as being given extra time on the test

or a separate testing room. Kelsii Dyer, a testing coordinator at the UA, said the council believes that everyone should have the right to take the test, and if they need accommodations, testing coordinators will “enjoy accommodating them.” Dyer said the issues being addressed by the association relate to problems that may have been relevant in the past, but are not the “problems of today.” “The resolution seems vague and like it won’t do much. I don’t disagree with the fact that it would be more accommodating, I just don’t think it would be more effective,” said Dyer. Diedre Lamb, the manager of curricular access at the UA Disability Resource Center who works with law school students, said the James E. Rogers College of Law has a long history of accommodations for students that go back to the 1980s. Lamb said that the law school was accommodating disabled students who wanted to enroll in law school before many of Ivy League colleges. “I’m really glad the association is really wanting to resolve these issues,” Lamb said. “That was the barrier in the past, that disabled students had to jump through so many hoops just to get the accommodations.”

Pointing fingers only fails students Dan Desrochers Daily Wildcat

A

merican students are brought up to wrongly fear failure. The feeling of dismay that comes with facing the wrath of your parents when your report card has an “F” on it seems like something that should be avoided at all costs. But the fault lies with parents who need to rein in their rage and re-evaluate their expectations. Failure shouldn’t be commended, but it also shouldn’t be condemned. The fear of failure defines the major flaw in our educational system. “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original,” said Sir Ken Robinson, a New York Times bestselling author. The U.S. educational system has lost sight of failure’s role. Instead of teaching students that failing an assignment or two can serve as a learning experience, most students learn it’s a sign of stupidity. Failure is merely a temporary setback, but school officials are so worried about scores and rankings that bad grades becomes this ugly label stamped on a “disappointing” student. Throughout the year there have been talks of educational reform. President Barack Obama introduced the “Race To The Top High School Commencement Challenge” that has school district officials scrambling for educational reform in hopes of getting the cash prize rewards. According to The New York Times, schools in Tennessee, Delaware, Maryland and New York have begun implementing teacher evaluation programs as a way to reform their school districts. Teachers have become the scapegoats for our educational failure. While eliminating bad teachers is a step in the right direction, evaluations can also cause teachers to pander to students or parents to get a good review. It’s a terrible solution. America doesn’t need to point fingers, it needs educational revolution. As it is now, education is merely a machine, where students move from conveyer belt to conveyer belt — that is to say from school to school — attempting to end up with a college’s stamp of approval and a job. This assembly-line system may work for factories turning out products, but students are people, and just going through the motions isn’t enough. Intelligence is far more than doing well in a class or on a test. Some of the biggest names in science and technology failed or dropped out of school. U.S. schools focus on cramming as much knowledge into students’ heads right before a test, then students regurgitate it and after empty their brains of all that information — it doesn’t support learning, it supports intellectual bulimia. The current mode of education is skewed to favor pupils who can memorize quickly over visual, creative and active learners. Americans support a school system that expects identical performance from millions of different children, and then are angry when their children fail. While politicians argue about how best to reform U.S. education, reform should also happen at home. Not everyone can get an “A” in every class. Not everyone should get an “A” in every class. Instead of buying into the same archaic system, Americans need to realize that comparing test scores or GPAs doesn’t accurately show what problems are in schools or their solutions. Students failing doesn’t mean they’re failures. School is when they should be making mistakes and learning from them. It’s ludicrous to demand perfection from students in an imperfect school system. Schools and national standards should be reformed to reflect reality. — Dan Desrochers is a chemistry freshman. He can be reached at letters@wildcat.arizona.edu or on Twitter via @WildcatOpinions.

Stop the Pinkberry cult Andrew J. Conlogue Daily Wildcat

T

he UA has seen a litany of special events in its long history, including hosting U.S. presidents. But it was perplexing to see last week’s two-day celebration of a frozen yogurt shop opening. Pinkberry’s first day in the Student Union Memorial Center was met with fanfare and hysteria. In its home state of California, the shop has a following as cultish as a midnight movie or an underground band. That, however, raises an unsettling question. Is the madness of Pinkberry going to spread its tendrils into the fabric of our quiet university? And are we already too far gone to prevent it?

The signs are not especially encouraging. Those from the East Coast may recall with dread the terrifying reign of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, when it seemed Americans watched with constant vigilance for the “hot” light to shine. Starbucks retains a similar following, though it has shrunk a bit since its popularity peaked. The UA — that monolith of college consumerism — now has the newest craze: Pinkberry. California is already dotted with Pinkberrys, and this particular brand of yogurt is even found internationally. The Middle East has an inexplicably large number of Pinkberrys, including staid Saudi Arabia. If even the

denizens of a hyper-conservative Muslim monarchy are not immune to Pinkberry’s wiles, then surely UA’s population is doomed to succumb. Unlike most cults, the folks who crave this California-style frozen treat put their obsession out on the Internet. There is a dark corner of Pinkberry’s website devoted to groupies, which targets fanatics. There are profiles, a blog, polls to take, and stories to read and share. There’s even a contest to have a room in one’s house designed by the Pinkberry team. Apparently the indoctrination is so deep that the greatest reward for the faithful is to have their home changed so they may live eternally in the presence of their beloved Pinkberry. Not since the fascist regimes of the mid-20th century or the “Twilight” saga has an institution been so geared toward a fandom this unwavering. Risking the alienation of doomsayers and devoted Pinkberry fans alike, this yogurt shop will

eventually fade from the spotlight. Those same East-Coasters who flocked to Krispy Kremes at the bidding of the “hot” light may remember that the honeymoon ended eventually. Even Starbucks, though still popular, has become the butt of seemingly every joke about invasive consumerism. Sooner or later, that Pinkberry will be little more than a tired fad. That’s not to say, however, that a little good-natured fad worship won’t be enjoyable in the future. So when UA students watch “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” or swap Phish recordings — as they surely will for a long time to come — there’s sure to be one among them with a Pinkberry in their hand. — Andrew J.

Time capsule helps students learn to reflect, self-evaluate Rebecca Miller Daily Wildcat

S

tudents from Prescott High School buried a 5-foot time capsule on Feb. 15, which will be opened on Feb. 14, 2062, according to the Arizona Daily Star. The items in the time capsule were from elementary, middle and high school students. Some wrote letters to themselves, planning what they think they will be doing, and some parents included letters to their children. Courtney Snow, who teaches English at Prescott High School, told the Prescott Daily Courier how impressed she was by how introspective the students’ letters were, the way they described their lives in the present and what they think their future lives would be like.

Students are so focused on classes, grades, sports and other distractions — it’s good that teachers took the time to challenge them to reflect on the present and to plan further in the future than just the next year. Some UA students and faculty members said they were also intrigued by the idea of a time capsule. When asked what they would add to a UA time capsule, most said items from their daily lives, especially those that helped play a big role in changing their lives. In a society obsessed with having items bigger, better and snazzier, it’s refreshing that when it comes down to it, people can still appreciate the small things in life. “I would put in a recipe to

Maybe the time capsule will encourage her to start slowing down and enjoying something from scratch. Other people said their addition to the capsule would be something to help people reflect on how far society has come. “I definitely think that growing up, my old Nokia phone, the one that’s like a brick and is impossible to destroy, played a big role in my life,” said Rachel Edwards, a sociology senior. No one had a cellphone 50 years ago. Today people take for granted the drastic changes in technology

This comic fails to illustrate that the girlfriend has been forced to miss days in school as a direct result of her abusive boyfriend, that she will have to pay hundreds if not thousands of dollars to the hospital because of her injuries and that she is also suffering psychological trauma that will take years to heal, and money if she is to seek psychiatric help. Domestic violence impacts and estimated 1.3 million a year in the United States,

and communication that happened during our generation. Regardless of how people communicate in the future, hopefully thinking of the time capsule insprie her to remember how far technology has progressed. Overall, it was fascinating to watch the time people took to analyze what was truly significant in their lives. Time capsules challenge people to reflect on what mark they want to make in the world, what’s valuable in today’s society and to start thinking about their future. Critical thinking and selfreflection are important lessons for students in elementary, middle and high schools to learn. Their school district officials should be applauded for implementing this project and UA officials should consider following this example. — Rebecca Miller is a junior studying photography and journalism.

An employee in the Park Avenue Parking Garage called the department at 11:15 a.m., and said someone gave them a fake $20 bill. The employee said he was unable to get the name of the person who gave him the money but that he thought the bill had been spent this past weekend or earlier Monday morning. Two more counterfeit $20 bills were also found at Pinkberry. The business’ accountant reported the fakes and said they were in a pile of money when employees noticed markings on the bills. The accountant also said the fake money may have come in this past weekend or on Monday morning. Officers are investigating the incidents and said they believe they are related. The UAPD has also asked the United States Secret Service of Tucson as well as the Phoenix Secret Service to help them find more information. So far, neither UAPD nor the Secret Service has found any information on suspects or witnesses.

Pikes next to bikes

UAPD officers were on patrol at 1:20 a.m. on Monday when a Manzanita-Mohave Resident Hall residence assistant called them and said there was a student passed out in the front of the dorm next to the bike racks. Officers arrived on the scene and noticed a student who was passed out in the fetal position wearing a wet black shirt and jeans with the legs rolled up. Officers woke him up and he was hardly able to walk or speak. They carried the student to the benches nearby to question him. The officers asked what he was doing. He told them, “I am rushing Pike and I was drinking at the house earlier in the night.” Officers continued to ask how long he had been there. He said the last thing he remembers is one of the fraternity members taking him home, and left him next to the door. He said he did not remember anything after that but crawling next to the bushes and bike racks. The student then asked the officers where his roommate was, and told them his roommate was pledging the fraternity as well, but he remembers last seeing him at the fraternity house. Officers then searched the surrounding areas for his roommate, where they found him heavily intoxicated. The officers picked his roommate up and escorted him back to the dorm. While they were driving him back, the student threw up in the back of the police car. As they arrived at the dorm, officers called Southwest Ambulance to have the students transported to the University of Arizona Medical Center. Both were cited for minor in possession of alcohol in body and referred to the Dean of Students Office. Both were fine the next day.

“Mapping Arizona: From Mexican Territory to U.S. State” (exhibit) This is new exhibit on display in the UA Main Library from Jan. 6 – March 28, 2012, details the path Arizona took to become a state – first as part of the Territory of New Mexico, then as the Territory of Arizona, finally attaining statehood in 1912. In addition to an array of historical maps, “Mapping Arizona” also includes books and unique documents selected from Special Collections extensive holdings. These additional materials offer insight into the stories that accompany the lines, boundaries, and borders within the maps. UA Main Library, 1510 E. University Blvd.

Ansel Adams: The View from Here Perhaps no photographer’s work has enjoyed such popularity as Ansel Adams’s awe-inspiring views of the natural world. His early trips to the Yosemite wilderness in the 1910s, 1920s and 1930s informed the stylistic approach that made him famous. These treks included not only the physical activities of hiking, camping, and mountain climbing, but also social, intellectual, cultural, and spiritual elements. With forty photographs and supporting documents from the Ansel Adams Archive, Ansel Adams: The View from Here explores the relationship between Adams’s magical photographs of the American landscape - both its panoramic vistas and its intimate details - and how he came to understand the importance of his natural environment. Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm, Saturday & Sunday, 1pm – 4pm through March 4th at The Center for Creative Photography: 1030 North Olive Road.

USC head coach Kevin O’Neill glares at a referee in McKale Center on March 6, 2010. O’Neill’s Trojans have been decimated by injuries this season, leading to just one win so far in Pac-12 Conference play.

Injuries led to Trojans not living up to expectations in the 2011-2012 season By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat

Arizona has had its fair share of untimely injuries this season. Between the loss of both Kevin Parrom and Jordin Mayes, as well as the dismissal of Sidiki Johnson, the Wildcats’ 2011-12 campaign hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing. But given USC’s run of major injuries, Sean Miller and his squad have little room for self-pity. The Trojans will take on the Wildcats at 6:30 p.m. in McKale Center tonight with only six active scholarship players after losing five players to season-ending injuries. “My heart goes out to their team and Kevin (O’Neill),” Miller said. “I don’t know if I’ve seen a team experience so many injuries in one season. Not just a couple weeks, season-ending type of injuries. It’s astonishing. There’s no team that can overcome

Arizona set to face two ranked teams By Cameron Moon Daily Wildcat

Following a successful showing in the Hillenbrand Invitational, the Arizona softball team will play in the Cathedral City Classic today in Palm Springs, Calif., taking on Fresno State and No. 13 Georgia. The rest of Arizona’s weekend includes a tough schedule, including games against No. 21 Oklahoma State on Friday and games against Fordham and Syracuse on Saturday. The Classic ends on Sunday with a game against Long Beach State. Syracuse is a familiar foe for the Wildcats, who played them just two weekends ago in Arizona’s fourth game of the Kajikawa Classic. Arizona pelted Syracuse in five innings, 11-1. Despite the teams already having played, head coach Mike Candrea is not taking the Classic lightly. Mike Candrea “This week is going to be a big test Softball for us because we ramp things up a little bit,” Candrea said. “We’ve got head coach some very good competition.” The competition is more formidable than the games they’ve played recently, especially in the Hillenbrand Invitational, but the talk in practice is still about doing the little things right. “This game is full of little moments that you either execute or you don’t,” Candrea said. “Sometimes, whether it’s a sacrifice bunt or missing signs, the little things will catch up to you in big games, and you have small margin for error.” Two of the “little moments” where the Wildcats have been inconsistent are the timeliness of their hitting and starting slow. Candrea said the timeliness is affected by the slower speed teams try to pitch to the Wildcats. “As hitters, we have to do a better job of getting on time earlier,” Candrea said. “We’re really slow coming out of the gate, but the second or third time around we’re picking things up. They’re used to seeing a particular envelope and when they see 58 (mph), their timing mechanisms are still on the hard stuff.” Aside from the parts of the game played on the field, Arizona senior Lini Koria says the team’s chemistry is still a work in progress, but will see improvement each weekend. “We’re growing as a group. We have some young kids that are starting, and just trying to guide them to understand the game a little more,” Koria said. “We’ve been preparing all of the fall. It’s just calming them down and bringing back in the fun of the game.”

that.” The injury bug first hit the Trojans in August 2011 when senior point guard Jio Fontan tore a ligament in his left knee and underwent season-ending surgery. O’Neill called Fontan the “heart and soul” of the Trojans after he helped lead USC into the NCAA Tournament last season by averaging 10.5 points and 3.9 assists in 31.5 minutes while orchestrating the offense. USC then lost 6-foot-6 forward Aaron Fuller, 6-foot-7 forward Evan Smith and 6-foot-10 forward Curtis Washington — two starters and a rotation player — for the season to injury. The run of bad luck wasn’t even close to over, however. The Trojans took the biggest blow in late January when 7-foot sophomore, and NBA prospect, DeWayne Dedmon went down

Two seasons ago, Arizona guard Brendon Lavender was at a crossroads. He was what head coach Sean Miller called the Wildcats’ best shooter in practice, but the results weren’t coming on the floor. Lavender was scoring a little more than three points per game while playing more than 16 minutes. He was Arizona’s fourth-best 3-point shooter and his season average was hovering around an ordinary 35 percent from behind the arc. The 6-foot-5 native of Mesa, Ariz., had a decision to make. He could transfer to a smaller school and see both his playing time and production increase, or he could stay at Arizona and face an uncertain future. Lavender opted for the latter option, and things couldn’t have worked out much better. “I’m definitely glad I stuck it out,” Lavender said. “I’ve had a lot of lows but I’ve also had some highs. That’s one thing I’ve learned — you’ve gotta stick it out because usually there’s light at the end of the tunnel. I really didn’t know what was going to happen, but as of today, I’m happy with what I’ve done.” Lavender leads the Pac-12 Conference in 3-point shooting at 51.9 percent and is one of the conference’s key bench players, scoring 5.2 points per game in 13.5 minutes of action. But Lavender’s laidback personality means he isn’t the type to stalk statistics to see how he measures up. “I’m just a moment dude,” he said, adding he learned that he sits atop the conference in 3-point shooting from people on Facebook and Twitter. The evolution from practice standout to lethal ingame shooter began this summer when Lavender

with a torn ACL, forcing him to sit for the rest of the season. Like Arizona, the Trojans are restricted to a seven-man rotation. But O’Neill would likely take Josiah Turner, Kyle Fogg, Nick Johnson, Solomon Hill and Jesse Perry over his makeshift starting five any day. The Trojans don’t start a senior and lean exclusively on 5-foot-7 speedy point guard Maurice Jones. While Jones is a constant threat, the rest of O’Neill’s starting five is slim pickings. And unfortunately for USC, that’s the way it’s going to be for the rest of the season, as the Trojans are three losses away from finishing with one win in conference play. “We kind of have what we have and it’s not changing,� O’Neill said. “There’s nobody getting eligible, there’s no trades. I wish we had a couple of 10-day (contracts), but we can’t do any of that. Our team is as constructed and that’s the way we’re going

By Cameron Moon Daily Wildcat

The Arizona women’s basketball team begins the final stretch of its season tonight, taking on USC at the Galen Center in Los Angeles. The USC contest is one of three games remaining before the start of the Pac-12 Conference Tournament, and head coach Niya Butts is optimistic about the near future. “I thought we played well and did a lot of good things,� Butts said. “We’ve got our work cut out for us. Hopefully, we’ll go to LA and come back happy.� The last time the two teams faced, guard Candice Warthen was sidelined with an ankle injury. At the time, she was averaging 16.8 points per game to go along with 4.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.1 steals. Arizona (14-13, 3-12 Pac-12) sorely missed her contribution and fell to the Trojans 72-67. Since her Jan. 19 return, Warthen has been a shell of her former self. She attributes this to the confidence she lost to her injury, but has the plan to change. “I am 100 percent healthy,� Warthen said. “I just want to go out and do my job, play good defense and take good shots. Confidence is my biggest problem since I’ve been back. I just need to play with confidence and do whatever it takes to help my team.� Warthen, along with the rest of the team, can gather some confidence from the recent play of leading scorer Davellyn Whyte and freshman three-point machine Erin Butler. Whyte, who averages 17.3 points per game on the season, was in a shooting slump during the Wildcats’ eight-game losing streak. But the junior returned to form against Washington State, scoring 19 points and grabbing 11 rebounds, in arguably the team’s best performance of the season. “We need to put everything together,� Whyte said. “Some games, we’ll rebound well, some games we’ll pass the ball around well, we’ll score, we just need to put everything together.� Butler is a huge contributor to Arizona’s 35.9 percent 3-point shooting, which is best in the

Pac-12. When she has been able to provide a spark, such as her 23-point performance against Oregon or her 21 points against Washington State — a game in which she shot 8-11 from the field and 5-8 from beyond the arc — the Wildcats have almost been untouchable. Warthen said the Wildcats’ energy will not be a problem as urgency sets in during the fight for seeding in the Pac-12 Tournament. “It’s really important to come out with energy,� she said. “Usually, when we come out with energy, the results are good. We just need to come out from the tip playing hard. We have to keep our heads up even when we’re down.�

spent countless hours in the gym with fellow senior guard Kyle Fogg. Fogg sits third in the Pac-12 in 3-point shooting at 44.6 percent. “It’s definitely worked out for both of us,� Lavender said. “We worked as hard as we can throughout the summer and fall. I’m happy that I’m up there with some of the best shooters and hopefully it’ll work throughout the next couple days.� The coaching staff is just as happy with Lavender’s choice to stay. “We always had great confidence in Brendon’s shooting,� Miller said. “Sometimes his role on last year’s team is understated. He had big moments coming off the bench where he really delivered.� The door was wide open for Lavender after Kevin Parrom’s preseason injuries forced the Wildcats to use a smaller lineup. But while Lavender’s time on the court hasn’t taken an exponential jump, his production has.

to be. We just don’t have enough right now.� Their rash of injuries has brought major struggles from the Trojans. They sit at the bottom of the Pac-12 in almost every major statistical category. USC is playing as small as it ever has, with only one rotation player, James Blasczyk, standing taller than 6-foot-6. But even he is unable to practice with the team and can only play in games, according to O’Neill. “We’re a totally different team than we were early on,� O’Neill said. “We don’t have an inside presence defensively.� Even with USC’s massive struggles, Miller understands the Wildcats’ margin for error is still razor-thin. They need a series sweep to keep their NCAA Tournament chances alive, and even against an injury-depleted Trojans team, anything can happen. “I don’t feel they’re favorable at all, I really don’t,� Miller said of this weekend’s matchups. “For us, it’s no different than it was three weeks ago before we went to play Cal and Stanford. There’s never been a big picture for us and that’s where we’re at right now.�

Lavender has sparked a number of Arizona runs this season with his lethal catchand-shoot ability, and he is always a threat to spot up when the Wildcats are in transition. While Lavender falls a 3-pointer made per game short of qualifying for the NCAA’s 3-point shooting title, he would, at the least, be in the conversation as the best shooter in the country. “As he’s been thrust into a bigger role — it’s one thing to have that opportunity,� Miller said. “It’s another thing to deliver and really seize that opportunity. Some of his shooting in games this year has been a real big reason why we’ve been on the winning side of things.� But while Lavender’s 3-point barrages against Bryant (6-of-8), Oregon State (5of-6) and Washington State (4-of-5 and 5-of-7) may stand out to fans, they couldn’t be further from the forefront of the guard’s mind. “Those games are really fun, but like I said, I’m a winner,� Lavender said. “I just want to keep winning and get in the (NCAA) Tournament for my last year.�

endorsement of “infanticide.” “When you have the government as the central provider of services you inevitably move towards tyranny,” he said. According to Paul, who delivered more than 4,000 babies during his career as a gynecologist, birth control is not something the federal government should be regulating. This issue should be left to American citizens, many of whom use birth control to curb their own “immorality,” he said. “The (birth control) pills can’t be blamed for the immorality of our society,” he said. When it came to addressing the ills of American culture, all of the candidates advocated for preserving the traditional family unit and promoting abstinence-only education. “What we’re seeing is a problem in our culture with respect to children being raised by children, children being raised out of wedlock,” Santorum said. “The bottom line is we have a problem in this country and the family is fracturing.” Soon after, the candidates confronted one of Arizona’s most critical issues, immigration. They agreed something needs to be done to better protect American borders and enforce immigration policies. “We’re losing a lot of visitors and workers that could come to this country because we have an inefficient immigration service,” Paul said. He added that in order to make it more efficient, the government needs to direct

said it

When they were discussing birth control, I thought it was interesting that they all sort of ganged up on the president. … It was a good display of unity. However, my personal opinion is that it shouldn’t have been brought up. I thought it was a waste of time and a minor issue compared to the debt crises.

fewer efforts overseas. This will save money, which can then be put back into regulating U.S. borders, he said. Gingrich’s view of the issue coincided with Paul’s. He said we need to ensure easy access for legal immigrants and make it impossible for illegal immigrants to cross into the country. Romney said the E-Verify system, a database that enables businesses to confirm the employment eligibility of their workers, is the key to successfully reducing

illegal immigration. Since E-Verify has been implemented, illegal employee hiring rates have gone down by 14 percent, according to Romney. As president, he said he would make sure all employers would have to do an E-Verify background check on their employees, and if they don’t abide, legal action will be taken against them. “Just as Arizona is finding out, you can stop illegal immigration. It’s time we finally did it,” Romney said.

I didn’t really get a satisfactory answer about same-sex marriage, with maybe an exception of Ron Paul. None of them gave a direct answer to why they opposed it.
