College of Law fights drop in applicants By Kevin Reagan DAILY WILDCAT

Even with the overall national applicant pool dropping between 15 and 16 percent, admissions officers in the James E. Rogers College of Law remain confident that the UA’s reputation won’t be hindered by a downward trend in law school applicants. Because of increasing tuition costs and the current economic landscape, the rate of applicants dropped 20

percent — even more than the national average — as of last year. “We’re all in a declining market,” said Eric Eden, assistant dean of admissions and financial aid at the College of Law. “It’s a sea all the boats are on.” All 10 of the regions that administer the Law School Administration Test in the United State have noticed a steady decline. The LSAT is one of the key factors, along with a student’s undergraduate grade point average and

resume, that determine an applicant’s acceptance into law school. The unfortunate standing of the economy, accompanied by the added worries of student loan debt and job security are all factors that are forcing students to reconsider whether it is the right time for them to apply to law school, Eden said. “People who are committed are thinking rationally about their chances,” he said. The average cost of tuition is

estimated at $40,000 per academic year for in-state students at the College of Law. This could make students either postpone applying to law school or change careers altogether, though Eden remained optimistic. “We already have a pretty big pool (of applicants),” Eden said. “We’re insulated by the talent in our pool, so our volume isn’t as effected.” Unlike medical schools, the College of Law accepts students from all

majors, such as history, philosophy and music. “There is a real community here,” said Allison Nash, the College of Law’s director of admissions and financial aid. The college takes great pride in its intimate environment with small class sizes and consistent mentorship, she said. “I don’t think it (a declining interest) is just for law schools,” said Jean

Barber decries state priorities By Stephanie Casanova DAILY WILDCAT

Ron Barber, a victim of the shooting on Jan. 8, 2011, and Gabrielle Giffords’ former district director, jumped into the special election for Giffords’ seat two weeks ago with the intention of prioritizing education. He initially had no intention of running for office, he said, even after

being asked by both Republicans and Democrats to run. “But Gabby asked me to (run) and that kind of got me thinking,” Barber said. “The decision wasn’t easy to reach … but in the end it actually was the only thing I felt I could do.” During a discussion with the UA Young Democrats club on Thursday, Barber shared his opinion on issues such as immigration and

unemployment, specifically veteran unemployment, in addition to the importance of job creation in biosciences, technology and the solar energy industry. He also discussed higher education and the Arizona Legislature’s attitude toward it. “This Legislature has decided that education doesn’t matter, be it K-12 or higher education. It’s real clear that that’s not a priority,” Barber said.

“Basically I think this Legislature, if it had its way, would not have any investment in education or anything else except arresting people and locking them up because that’s what they believe, by and large, is the only role in government.” Barber said he opposes tuition hikes and believes the government

Experts in higher education debated how American students and universities can better prepare themselves to integrate with education internationally on Thursday. The panel discussion, titled “The End of Internationalization of Higher Education: Myth or Reality?” included four experts with backgrounds in the study of international higher education. Each brought their individual perspective on how internationalization has impacted academia, and where there are holes in the system that need to be addressed. “It is an ongoing process,” said Hans de Wit, a professor from Amsterdam University of Applied Science. “Internationalization adapts to new circumstances.” He categorized internationalization in two aspects — mobility and curriculum. International education is the reassurance of a student’s

Student combats female stereotypes Inspired by childhood, woman pens thesis to address negative media portrayals of women By Brittny Mejia DAILY WILDCAT


hen elementary school classmates would play house, Mary Ann Warren was asked to be the maid. The experience stuck with Warren, who learned to speak out against injustice. Warren, a 58-year-old African-American interdisciplinary studies senior, was born in California, but her parents were born and raised in the South where they picked cotton during the time of Jim Crow segregation laws. Warren’s mother would recount to her children her husband’s words as they worked: “My children are not going to pick any cotton. They’re going to be educated.” Her parents kept their word. Warren’s four siblings went to college, but she was the first to attend a university — the University of California, Berkeley. In order to receive her master’s degree, Warren joined the military to help pay for school.

During her 30 years in the military, she moved up the ranks, eventually becoming a lieutenant colonel. She moved to Arizona after her military retirement. The first class she attended at the UA was Film and TV History, Beginning to Mid-20th Century, with Professor Mary Beth Haralovich. The course covered the segregation period in the United States, and Warren said she was surprised when they began to discuss the topic. “It was awesome because I was born during those times, I lived during those times and it was like something that was foreign to my classmates,” Warren said. Besides one other African-American classmate, the class was primarily made up of Caucasians. Growing up, Warren was not allowed to watch television because her father did not want her seeing stereotypical African-American characters. He would tell her, “That’s not you. That’s what they want you to be, but that’s not you.” In her first class with Haralovich, Warren watched a video depicting African-American stereotypes in film. Instead of becoming angry, WarBRITTNY MEJIA / DAILY WILDCAT ren said she learned to be proud of the characters’ ability to own their roles and turn them into Mary Ann Warren, an interdisciplinary studies senior strength and power.

Students learn to sustain green careers By Elliot P. Hopper Daily Wildcat

Students are learning how to earn green while promoting green alternatives. Professionals working in sustainability met with students on Thursday to tell them about careers in sustainable energy and the steps it takes to become an expert in the field. Many of the professionals, who were recruited to the campus by Career Services, were representatives and CEOs of sustainable companies like Global Green Integrators, a recycling division that minimizes landfill waste and Grecycle, a company that collects wasted vegetable oil from local restaurants to create biodiesel. Acts of sustainability were categorized as human, economic, social and environmental forms. Each speaker associated his or her company with one of these four backgrounds. Some of the companies, like Global Green Integrators, deals with both the economic and the environmental aspects

of sustainability and completely rely on renewable energy, said Lisa Perez, CEO of Global Green Integrators. “I am taking the food in the back of this room and selling it to pig farmers when this meeting is over. To me, that is sustainability,” she said. “My company uses whatever food scraps we can get.” Fourteen to 22 percent of the trash in a landfill is food scraps, according to Perez. The process is different for other professionals working for Raytheon Missile Systems or Tucson Electric Power, which are dependent on coal and fossil fuels. Both companies said they are looking for new sustainable resources. “Right now, it is crucial in step one, and step one is to make sure the lights are on in the emergency room or the lights are on in the classroom,” said Ted Burhans, a renewable energy employee for the Tucson Electric Power. “In saying that, our step two is aggressively taking steps to not rely on coal and fossil fuels so heavily and

physical and scholarly experience of worldly affairs, he said, but the use of internationalization as a “numbers game” for an institution’s domestic reputation poses concerns. “The reality is that most universities are established for national purposes,” de Wit said. Universities are starting to care less about academic opportunities offered by global markets and more about how they utilize them to increase revenue, he added. “There is a demand for U.S. higher education,” said Mariam Assefa, the executive director and CEO of World Education Services.

should be invested in education. It’s “wrong to put the budget balancing on the backs of students and their families,” he said, adding that the Legislature also does not prioritize health and human services, mental health services and environmental responsibility.

looking for sustainable and renewable projects.” As the world’s largest developer, producer and integrator of weapon systems, Raytheon is also looking to become known for sustainability, according to Hyte Johnson, the

company’s director of environmental health and safety. “New sustainability and renewable energy projects are a very important aspect to the missile projects,” he said, adding that the company is starting to employ engineers solely to work on

profession, he said, and believes that the current student body of the College of Law is partly to blame for the decline in applicant interest. “When you begin to unravel what it really is you’ll be doing,” Barnard said, “there is some serious consideration of whether one can handle it.” In order to better educate the undergraduate student body about the law school experience, a new class has been introduced that delves deeper into the entire scope of understanding law and how the legal system operates. “More courses could boost one’s confidence in

determining whether they can really handle law school,” Barnard said. Along with this class, a new credit program is in the works at the College of Law to possibly lower the costs for undergraduates committed to pursuing law school. The “Three plus three” program will allow undergraduates to begin the first year of law school simultaneously with their senior year of their undergraduate careers. “Every year we try to sharpen our focus,” Eden said, “and this brand-new idea will hopefully save some tuition costs.”

explained that higher education is being bought and sold as a commodity, and as a result, there is a definite shortcoming in the United States’ academic talent. Internationalization, she said, can help fill universities’ financial gaps and increase talent within their student bodies. “Everybody is looking everywhere for the most qualified people,” Assefa said. Tacila Bezerra, a graduate student in educational psychology, said she thought of herself as one of these qualified students when she traveled from her homeland in Brazil to the UA. Some of her professors, she said, were unable to adapt to her as an international student with an undergraduate degree from a different country. “I just felt really discriminated (against),” Bezerra said. When seeking help from a professor

on improving her English for a writing assignment, she said she was blatantly instructed to drop the class entirely. A lot of emphasis is put on educating international students and not enough on educating faculty, said Jenny Lee, an associate professor in the UA’s Center for the Study of Higher Education. During the discussion, Lee explained the exploitation of international students that occurs at many national universities. An example of this, she said, was the recruitment of track and field athletes from Africa to an American university, where they would receive a degree that was virtually useless in the labor pool of their homeland. “Internationalization overlooks the human scale,” Lee said. “It takes away the responsibility of the institution.”

of the border and make it safer, then find ways to legalize guest worker programs and the Dream Act, a piece of legislation that would qualify undocumented youth for a conditional path to citizenship in six years. “The border, which used to be a free and open space, is now a fearful place … and they (ranchers living on the border) are really concerned,” Barber said. “We see the effects of drug running and all that and we all hear about the impact of illegal migration but if you’re living on the border … it’s something else.” Though the UA area would not be represented by Barber if he were elected, the university would

influence Southern Arizona, including the district Barber would represent, which covers mostly East Tucson. Erik Lundstrom, president of the Young Democrats, said he knew the club had to help Democratic candidates campaign for the special election. When he heard Barber was running, he called Barber’s campaign manager. Lundstrom said he was pleased that Barber agreed to a visit. “He is obviously very knowledgeable and he has an opinion too,” Lundstrom said. “A lot of the time, they (candidates) come and tell us what we want to hear. He told us what he thought, which I really liked.”

freely about race in class also inspired Warren to do the same, she said. “I saw what she (Haralovich) was doing with the work and I thought, ‘OK, I’m going to try it too,’” Warren said. For her honors thesis, Warren decided to focus on the negative portrayal of women in the media. The Honors College accepted Warren’s abstract thesis, and she won $1,500 for her efforts. From there, she went to the National Association of Black Journalists, where she submitted “Negative Portrayal of African American Women in the Media: A Qualitative Study of Silencing Stereotypes and Strategies for Change in Today’s Media.” “I think it has turned into something really different from when it started,” Haralovich said. “It started as exposing the stereotype, and now it’s become strategies for change. The project has developed in a beautiful and important way.” Warren said she wants people to understand that her project is heartfelt, and that African-Americans are not all out to harm and steal from others. She added that she feels like she owes a lot to Haralovich because her life really started after taking her course. Warren was inspired to expose stereotypes and struggle for change. Following the class, Warren and Haralovich developed a close friendship and Warren still continues to confide in her former professor and current honors thesis adviser today. She is even taking another class with Haralovich. “I have a lot to thank her for, because she’s so encouraging,” Warren said. “Each student is treated differently, they’re not brushed off. I think that’s admirable.” Haralovich described Warren as a hard-working and ambitious student. She boasted about her achievements and ability to inspire those around her. “She gives me too much credit,” Haralovich said. “She’s inspired and she’s inspiring too. She’s very warm and candid and it’s very good to have someone like this in class.”

increasing their sustainability efforts. Students who have a background in finance, accounting, engineering or management have a good chance at “getting their name into the market,” said Michael Baruch, a Bright HomeSave program employee with Tucson Electric Power. “I would recommend to students that while it does help a little what you major in, the most important aspect that we would look for is curiosity and the hunger to want to learn more,” he said. Some students attended the event to learn about what the professionals do, how they work in sustainability and how they could participate in local projects or internships within the field. “My second major is in regional development, so I have always had an interest in sustainability and renewable energy,” said Christopher Kern, a senior studying political science and regional development. “I would also like to keep my options open and the ideas flowing for new sustainable projects.”

Mike called the wine list at the Mellow Mushroom basic, with nothing truly impressive. His analysis of the cocktail list was similar, declaring it fun but lacking depth. I had a White Chocolate Russian, a creative choice passed around and enjoyed by all, but it did nothing to change Mike’s or our opinion. His thoughts on the beer list were quite different. A discerning beer drinker, he declared it one

we’d arrived (which was fairly late at night), the gift shop was closed. Perhaps that colored our review a bit, but we’re not ashamed to admit it.


The menu has a lot of different varieties of pizza, so our choices reflected that ratio. I got a standard cheese pizza (to get the most essential taste), Mikey had the “Thai Dye” pizza covered in Asian fare, and Mike ordered the South-of-the-border Melchacho pizza. Josh had a hoagie on wheat, with spicy mustard,

mushrooms, carmelized onions and iceberg lettuce. The pizza was much admired by all. Mikey and Mike took the opportunity to trade slices, which was quite successful. However, we all agreed that the pizza could have been cooked a little longer. Though we liked our food in the moment, the flaws slowly grew more noticeable, and we found ourselves not enjoying our experience as much after an hour’s retrospection. As for Josh, he enjoyed his hoagie, but felt that it was something that could have easily been made at home to similar quality. He also pointed out that his side salad looked delicious, but upon actually eating it, found that it was not. Healthy options, he found, are not in abundance at the Mellow Mushroom.


We had a strange relationship with our server. She tried to make a joke about being psychic when she predicted one of our questions, but we didn’t hear her at first and it fell flat. Feeling bad (and also feeling a bit infatuated), Mikey blurted out, “I can read minds” quite loudly and with little context the next time she came. It was not his finest hour, and did not curry favor with the server for

him or our table. My White Chocolate Russian was also somewhat slow to arrive, and I found myself wishing I had had more time to enjoy it before the food arrived.


Given that it caters to college students, the price falls within the reasonable range, though toward the high end. Mike paid careful attention to the drink prices, and declared the local tap root beer reasonable at $3. The $6 pint, however, was a little questionable. I also received my White Chocolate Russian, normally $9, for half price because of a happy hour. That cut down nicely on what would have been a slightly painful bill.


The Mellow Mushroom is a fun experience that feels less fun the more you reflect on it. It took the four of us a very interesting walk up and down Mill Avenue (we almost went into a dueling pianos bar) to decide on the Mellow Mushroom. Knowing what we know now, we would enjoy another trip there, but the next time we’re in Tempe we may just brave another walk down Mill to find something new.

Spotlight on Lin casts shadow on media, US Luke Davis DAILY WILDCAT


he recent success of New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin has exposed ingrained racism in the media, and in the U.S., against Asian-Americans. Lin, who graduated high school with academic and athletic honors, had his basketball talents largely ignored early on. Though he won many state athletic awards and was named first-team All State for his success in high school, most colleges undervalued his basketball skills, and he didn’t receive a single athletic scholarship. However, Lin was rewarded for his academic achievements. He attended Harvard University and was guaranteed a spot on the basketball team. Lin improved his game in college but only sporadically received national media attention. He graduated in 2010 with a degree in economics, but was not drafted by any NBA team. Over the next two years, Lin bounced around the NBA D-League but saw limited playing time. Lin signed with the Knicks on Dec. 27. More than a month later, the struggling New York team gave Lin his first chance. Lin took full advantage, scoring 25 points and delivering seven assists. Everyone started asking, “Where did this guy come from?” But he’s been there all along, dismissed for his race. Linsanity surprised everyone. “Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian,” tweeted African-American champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. earlier last week. “Black players do what he does every night and don’t get the same praise.” Even though Mayweather’s comments are insensitive to all the hard work Lin has done, he might be scratching the surface to why Lin has struggled with racism. The U.S. is a country of stereotypes, and when someone breaks these stereotypes, everyone is shocked. Lin’s success hasn’t only exposed how surprised Americans are when an individual breaks the norm, but his arrival has revealed how racism toward Asians is thought of as being more acceptable than other minorities. It’s one thing when drunken, ignorant fans yell obscenities at a game, but when racial stereotypes are used so nonchalantly in the media by professionals, there are dangerous consequences. ESPN used the phrase “Chink in the armor” twice, once as a headline and once in an article by Anthony Federico. Max Bretos, an anchor on SportsCenter used it in a newscast. Federico was fired and Bretos was suspended. FoxSports.com writer Jason Whitlock takes the prize with his tweet, “Some lucky lady in NYC is gonna feel a couple inches of pain tonight.” Days later, he gave an unsatisfying apology: “I debased a feel-good sports moment. For that, I’m truly sorry.” In other words, he’s sorry for ruining the mood, but not for what he actually said. It’s hard to find a major TV network in the U.S. that makes blatant racist remarks of any kind, and the media companies made the right call by reacting swiftly and harshly. However, it’s shameful that some Americans still believe that stereotypes are harmless. Hopefully ESPN’s and FoxSports’ actions send the message that racism is not a joke.

For the Bible, and teacher, tell me so: The Arizona House of Representatives voted to permit elective courses that will teach students about the influence of the Bible on civilization and culture in Western society. Obviously this move was enacted to combat the ever-heightening War on Religion, one that hits Arizona particularly hard, given that there are no state laws barring teachers from using any religious texts in classes so long as they are for non-religious purposes. But hey, isn’t it great that children can finally learn about the Bible’s impact on the United States? Like last year’s House Bill 2582, which would have banned the implementation of any religious laws in Arizona outside of Anglo-American traditions or “the principles on which the United States was founded.” And what could be more American than a lack of religious tolerance?

Contra-ceptives: During Wednesday’s Republican debate in Mesa, Ariz., most of the candidates, the exception being Ron Paul (sort of), spoke about the immorality of contraception. Newt Gingrich called President Barack Obama’s recent call for insurance companies to provide free-ofcharge contraception an endorsement of “infanticide.” Too true. If you don’t make babies, then you’re killing babies. But regardless of your position on the issue, you have to give Gingrich credit for being loyal to his conservative principles. After all, that’s about the only thing he’s ever been loyal to. The great white hope: The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case that may change the way affirmative action is applied in schools and universities. The case involves a white, Texan woman who alleges that she was not admitted to the University of Texas at Austin in lieu of less qualified minority candidates. Sad, really. When will the subjugation of white, Texan women stop? In all seriousness, though, the university has a policy that automatically admits students that graduate in the top 10 percent, and then makes up the rest of its enrollment, about 25 percent, by a process that includes race as a factor. Sorry, but if you can’t make it into the bottom fourth of an enrollment cohort, there might be something other than race that went into it.

A new page in international relations: Gen. John R. Allen, the head of international forces in Afghanistan, issued a formal apology for U.S. troops accidentally burning copies of the Quran. In response to the perfectly logical question of, “How in the hell did you accidentally burn copies of a religious text?” Allen answered that the books were erroneously taken to an incineration facility. This is the latest PR flub for the military, which is still enduring protests for mistakenly using a Torah scroll as a tablecloth prop in the USO production of “Springtime for Hitler.”

Policy to ban ‘inappropriate’ tattoos an indecent proposal Caroline Nachazel

Although we have an obligation to morality, we also have a right to our expression.



o visible tattoos are typical guidelines for any professional environment. Even fast food chains have guidelines about where and if tattoos can be appropriately visible on employees. A tattoo with an obscene message or explicit language should be covered at the workplace. However, more restrictions should not be placed on inked speech. The Bettendorf Park Board in Iowa is considering a ban on tattoos after a city pool staff member asked a pool patron to cover up a tattoo that another patron called “inappropriate.” The policy would create specific “decency” guidelines

that guests of Bettendorf Park Board facilities would be required to follow. The ban would require anyone visiting the city’s parks or public facilities to cover up their body art. Such a ban would be extremely difficult to define. Tattoos on places where clothing is hard to reach, such as ankles or necks, would have to be covered if the ban was implemented. Getting a face tattoo in Bettendorf would also require the purchase of a mosquito-mesh net or a Darth Vader helmet to cover them up. City authorities argue that the ban’s goal is to protect the family-friendly environment of city facilities. But even though the

little town of Bettendorf may have good intentions for the tattoo ban, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Telling people where they can go based on a physical characteristic is discriminatory, and decency guidelines for showing tattoos in public is just as much a violation of free speech as telling people what they can and cannot talk about in public. The First Amendment protects all forms of speech, and that should include tattoos. This ban would be a violation of the amendment that Americans hold so dearly. Proponents of the ban say it was drafted to try to limit the amount

of obscenity seen by children and decrease public displays of derogatory language. Tattoos are considered artistic expression and should not be restricted in public, non-professional places. The Bettendorf ban is only a gateway to a series of restrictions that could easily follow. Although we have an obligation to morality, we also have a right to our expression. Deciding what to dress like in public should be a personal decision. Showing off or deciding to cover a tattoo when going outside should also be a personal decision, not a government-mandated one. If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen and if you can’t tolerate tattoos, don’t look. — Caroline Nachazel is a junior studying journalism and communication.

Sign stealing saga

A man called the University of Arizona Police Department on Monday to report that he saw two students on Cherry Avenue carry two large signs back to their car at 3:45 a.m. Officers barricaded the area. When the men saw that there were officers nearby, they threw the large Delta Delta Delta sorority signs into their vehicle and got in the car. When officers tried to slowly approach the car, one of the men tried to run away. Officers caught the other student and put him in the back of the police car, where they asked him why they were stealing the signs. The student said they are rushing the Beta Theta Pi fraternity and were asked to steal the signs. The student said the next sorority they were going to steal signs from was Alpha Delta Pi. An officer asked the student if he had been drinking earlier in the evening. The student said yes. Officers searched him and found a fake driver’s license. The other man eventually stopped running, and was caught and arrested. Both were cited for minor in possession of alcohol in body and second-degree burglary. The first student was also cited for possessing a fake driver’s license.

A ‘spaced out’ stealer

A Highland Market employee called UAPD to report that someone had shoplifted from the store at 12:15 a.m. on Wednesday. Officers spoke with the night supervisor, who said he saw a woman walk in with a big purse and slip candy and a 32-ounce blue Powerade into her purse while waiting for her breakfast burrito. When employees approached the student, she pulled the drink out of her purse and gave it back to them, but did not give back the candy. As employees asked her about the candy, she grabbed it and set it on the counter, then tried to walk out of the store. As she was walking out of the store, officers stopped her. They asked why she had been trying to steal and if she was aware that stealing is illegal. She said she knew, that she made a mistake and that she just “spaced out.” Officers searched the rest of her purse and looked for other stolen items. They were unsuccessful, but found a bag of marijuana and a pipe. The student was arrested for possessing drugs, drug paraphernalia and shoplifting.

Flushing down the evidence

A UofA Bookstore employee reported that a woman tried to steal an item at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. Officers arrived at the bookstore and detained the woman. Employees said she removed a tag on a red washcloth, which cost $2.99. The woman said she had no intention of stealing it until she went to grab the item and the tag ripped off. She said she became scared when the employee approached, so she went to the restroom and tried to flush the item down the toilet. When she walked back outside, officers were already waiting for her. She was cited and arrested for shoplifting. She told the officers that she learned her lesson, and that it would not happen again.

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.

Arizona wins 20th game Wildcats bounce back from UW loss, defeat Southern Cal By Nicole Dimtsios Daily Wildcat It didn’t start out pretty, but in the end, the Arizona men’s basketball team was able to secure its 20th win of the season. “It hasn’t been an easy road to get to 20,” head coach Sean Miler said. “We’ve been a real resilient team. We’re playing our best basketball in the month of February.” In a season marked by a “do or die” attitude, Arizona (20-9, 11-5 Pac-12) wrapped up a season sweep over the lowly USC Trojans (6-22, 1-14), defeating them 70-54 on Thursday night in McKale Center. “It’s a matter of figuring how to win and moving on to the next one,” Miller said. Several of the Wildcats’ usual contributors struggled, but not freshman Josiah Turner or senior Kyle Fogg. Turner had a career night with a season-high 15 points. The freshman also had one of his best nights handling the basketball, registering six assists against zero turnovers in 31 minutes. Turner said his aggressiveness came about thanks to being spurred along by junior forward Solomon Hill. “He kind of got at me about being more aggressive so I thought I’d come out and try it,” Turner said. Fogg led the way for Arizona with another double-double, registering 16 points and 12 rebounds, eleven of which were defensive. Fogg’s rebounding has picked up in the last three games, something he challenged himself to do. “I’ve been trying to help them out a little bit on the glass,” Fogg said. “Ever since last week I’ve been trying to put more pressure on myself to box out and get rebounds on the defensive end.” Fogg and Turner both shot 50 percent from the field and the Wildcats shot 46 percent from the field as a team. Arizona started out the game woefully and trailed the Trojans by as many as eight points early on, but picked up the pace by the end of the first half. The Wildcats went into halftime on a 12-0 run, sparked by a Fogg 3-pointer. During that stretch, Arizona held the Trojans scoreless for the last eight minutes of the half. USC attempted nine shots during that time period. “We kind of came out sluggish on defense,” Fogg said. “I think guys’ ball pressure picked up. We were helping each other out. It was easier to stop the shot.” Sophomore guard Jordin Mayes saw action for the first time since the Wildcats defeated California three weeks ago and even recorded a basket. Miller said he would plan to use Mayes on Saturday, but that Mayes’ main contribution would be against ASU on March 4.

Women’s basketball loses to Trojans Arizona only has two games left before Pac-12 tournament By Zack Rosenblatt Daily Wildcat

As has been the case with most of its recent losses, the women’s basketball team came out strong in the first half. But in the end, it was not enough, as the Wildcats fell to USC, 78-62, at the Galen Center in Los Angeles. The loss, Arizona’s second in a row and 13th in its last 16 games, drops its record on the season to 14-14, 3-13 in the Pac-12. Sophomore forward Erica Barnes came off the bench and led the Wildcats with 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting, while junior guard Davellyn Whyte added 13 points and eight rebounds. USC had four players score in double digits, led by Stefanie Gilbreath with 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting, 3-of-3 from 3-point range. Arizona kept the game close throughout most of the first half, and after a layup by Barnes with 4:55 remaining, the game was tied 27-27. It was all downhill from there though. The Trojans proceeded to go on a 12-4 run to close out the half and went into the locker room leading the Wildcats 39-31. Things did not get much better in the second half, as Gilbreath scored a 3-point jumper in the opening minute. After Erin Butler, Arizona’s 3-point shooting specialist, nailed a shot from long distance with 16:24 remaining, bringing the score to 46-37, USC never let the game get any closer than that. The Trojans led by a game-high 17 points with 5:39 remaining after a twopointer from Cassie Harberts. To add insult to injury, Whyte fouled out of the game in its waning moments. She finished shooting just 4-of-11 from the field and turned the ball over four times.

Baseball welcomes Auburn to Hi Corbett Tigers struggling this year, but still should be good test for Arizona By Kyle Johnson Daily Wildcat

The No. 8 Arizona baseball team will face its first real test of the season when it faces off with Auburn at 6 tonight at Hi Corbett Field. There will be a doubleheader against the Tigers on Saturday at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. as well. “(Auburn) is a very good program,” head coach Andy Lopez said. “It will be good for us to play somebody of that caliber at this time of the season.” For Lopez, there is also a factor of familiarity at play with Auburn. Before moving to Arizona, Lopez coached at Florida for seven years, where his team played the Tigers every season in the SEC. This year, the Tigers come in with lowered expectations — they are projected to finish last in the SEC West according to the coaches’

poll — but with how the Wildcats have started the season, facing a team from a top conference might be just what they need. After the game on Tuesday, junior Joey Rickard said the offense needs to do a much better job executing this weekend, even with the 12 runs the team put up against Utah Valley that night. Rickard added that the team made a lot of mistakes on the offensive end, and they need to fix them with a stronger opponent in Auburn coming to town. So far Rickard, junior Robert Refsnyder, and sophomore Johnny Field have contributed a majority of the offensive production, accounting for 22 of the 34 total hits this season. Lopez said the play of the offense takes the strain off the rest of the team as other players work their way into a hitting groove. The six through eight spot in the lineup are batting just .089 percent through the first four games, with senior Bobby Brown still hitless in 14 at-bats. “Those other guys will get going, it’s

only four games,” Lopez said. “It’s so doggone early.” The bullpen hasn’t been perfect so far, but two freshmen showed some real signs of potential Tuesday night. Relievers Lucas Long and Mathew Troupe finished off the 12-6 victory over Utah Valley after starter Tyler Hale gave up four runs in just two and one-third innings. They, along with Stephen Manthei, have jumped to the front of the bullpen competition as Lopez still tries to figure out every pitcher’s role, he said. “The thing that we are trying to do right now, early in the season, is to figure out who the right pieces are on the backside of the rotation.” Lopez added that the bullpen is full of pitchers who don’t have a lot of college pitching experience, so as the season goes on the pitchers will start to find their place. “These are guys who haven’t really pitched a lot,” Lopez said. “You have to give them an opportunity to go out there and prove they can do it.”

Softball splits series Seniors ready to graduate against two Bulldogs By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat

By Emi Komiya Daily Wildcat

Arizona softball started off its double header with a 9-0 victory over the Fresno State Bulldogs in six innings and later fell to the Georgia Bulldogs by a score of 0-3. Junior pitcher Kenzie Fowler allowed just four out of 22 Fresno State Bulldogs to reach base while seniors Lini Koria, and Jessica Spigner and junior Brigette Del Ponte scored two runs each, Senior Kristen Arriola and freshman Shelby Pendley both had RBI walks with the bases loaded, giving the Wildcats a comfortable lead. Arriola recorded her 11th walk and 11th RBI of the season. Spigner and Del Ponte both had RBIs in the fourth inning as well, pushing the lead to 6-0 and finished with a homer by Spigner.

Coming off a solid win, the Wildcats then faced a higher ranked team for the first time this season against No. 13 Georgia. Arizona was unable to bring it home with runners in scoring position in the first three innings. Sophomore pitcher Shelby Babcock allowed five walks and three runs with eight strikeouts. Senior outfielder Karissa Buchanan barely missed hitting a home run with one out in the second inning. The team was unable to get runners on base toward the end of the game with only Spigner getting walked in the sixth. This is the second consecutive loss for Arizona against Gerogia in the Cathedral Classic. The tournament continues through Sunday on Wrigley Field in Palm Springs, Calif., with the Wildcats set to face No. 21 Oklahoma State, Fordham, Syracuse and Long Beach State.

Head coach Sean Miller, sounding like the father figure he has become for his players, spoke glowingly about his diverse senior class at his Tuesday press conference in McKale Center. He mentioned Brendon Lavender’s shooting, Kyle Fogg’s defense, Jesse Perry’s toughness, Alex Jacobson’s scout teamwork and Dondre Wise’s future in coaching. But what Miller was most proud of has nothing to do with basketball. All five of Arizona’s seniors are on pace to graduate in May, much to the delight of their head coach. “I give them tremendous credit,” Miller said. “Very few programs have five seniors in one class and to have all five of them projected to graduate on time this spring is a great accomplishment for them. I also think it’s a great accomplishment for our

program.” That “great accomplishment” comes to a program in need of a facelift in the graduation rate department. Among all the Sweet 16 teams from a season ago, Arizona basketball sat in dead last with a 20 percent graduation rate that ranked 321st in the NCAA. Arizona also finished dead last in the Pac12 in football graduation rates from a season ago, further contributing to Arizona’s reputation as a school that doesn’t graduate its players. But UA athletic director Greg Byrne and his staff have worked to improve the Wildcats’ academic image, and the graduation of Fogg, Perry, Lavender, Wise and Jacobson has Arizona moving in the right direction. “Our academic support staff has worked tirelessly over the last three or four years and these guys have invested a lot academically,” Miller said. “Our senior class is really filled with a lot of quality people.”






Arizona has five seniors, including Jesse Perry, Kyle Fogg, Dondre Wise and Brendon Lavender, on its roster. All of them, along with center Alex Jacobson, will play their last home game on Saturday against UCLA.

Saturday’s game against UCLA will mark the last time Arizona’s five seniors will ever play in McKale Center By Mike Schmitz DAILY WILDCAT

Seniors Kyle Fogg, Jesse Perry, Brendon Lavender, Alex Jacobson and Dondre Wise will play their final home games in an Arizona uniform on Saturday at noon against UCLA. “Their loyalty toward the University of Arizona and their loyalty toward us as a new coaching staff is greatly appreciated and never forgotten,” UA head coach Sean Miller said of his seniors. “My hope is that we as a coaching staff can take these guys as far as we can and vice versa. They’re a resilient group and they’re a group of great people, I think their families are very proud of them.” Here’s a look at each senior and their career at Arizona:

Kyle Fogg

Height: 6-3 Weight: 188 UA Tenure: 2008-09 to 2011-12 Accolades: 2008-09 Honorable Mention Pac12 All-Freshman Team, 2010-11 Honorable Mention Pac-10 All-Defensive Team Miller: “Obviously, his statistics reveal that he’s been one of the most consistent players to play at Arizona in that he’s participated in more

single games than perhaps any single player ever has in the history of our program. I think that says it all. “I don’t know if I’ve ever coached a player that’s invested more of himself between when last year’s season ended and this year’s season began and you look at his numbers, it’s great to see all that hard work pay off for him. Great kid and somebody who’s going to be really successful when he leaves Arizona, that’s for sure.”

Brendon Lavender

Height: 6-5 Weight: 212 UA Tenure: 2008-09 to 2011-12 Accolades: Currently first in the Pac-12 in 3-point percentage at 52.4 percent. Also third in the NCAA in 3-point percentage. Miller: “We always had great confidence in Brendon’s shooting, and sometimes his role on last year’s team is understated. He played in all 38 games a year ago. He had big moments. As he’s been thrust into a bigger Jesse Perry role, it’s one thing to have that opportunity, Height: 6-7 it’s another thing to deliver and really seize Weight: 217 that opportunity. I think we all know that UA Tenure: 2010-11 to 2011-12 Accolades: 2011 NCAA West Regional All- some of his shooting in games this year have been a real big reason why we’ve been on the Tournament Team Miller: “I don’t know if we could have winning side of things.” asked him to do any more than he’s done at Arizona. He became a starter on last year’s Alex Jacobson Height: 7-0 team, really improved as the year went on, is Weight: 253 one of the big reasons that we had the sucUA Tenure: 2007-08 to 2011-12 cessful run that we did in the tournament and Accolades: Scored a career-high six points in his last year we’ve asked him to guard the other team’s biggest player almost in all 28 of against Lipscomb on December 21, 2009 and our games. He’s embraced that. I’m proud of grabbed a career-high five rebounds against what he’s been able to do, especially in two Washington on February 2, 2010. Miller: “I don’t know if he’s been 100 percent quick years, to be in the position to graduate since I’ve been here. He’s fought through it, he’s is also difficult.”

never complained. He’s done the best that he could do. When we’ve put him in games he’s always come in with a great attitude and helped us. He’s been on the scout team representing another team’s center quite a bit. He obviously practices hard every day. I would say on our team there’s probably not a more popular teammate than ‘Tree’ because everybody knows that his heart’s really in the right place. I think everyone respects the odds that he’s overcome just to even be a part of our team right now, knowing what he’s gone through with his lower back.”

Dondre Wise

Height: 6-1 Weight: 220 UA Tenure: 2009-10 to 2011-12 Accolades: Scored a career-high two points against Rice on December 1, 2010 Miller: “Dondre comes from a basketball family with Nic being his brother. Dondre has basketball in his blood. I think he’s going to make a great coach with whatever path he starts out at. We want to be very helpful to him. I have no doubt that he’ll be successful as a coach and because of that our team really respects him because he’s knowledgeable. It probably stems from the family that he’s from. Dondre’s taken advantage of the opportunity he has here. He’s met a lot of great people.”

uccess is rarely measured by how a player maximizes his abilities. In a game filled with systematic disadvantages due to physical size and talent, the athletically gifted get praised while the workhorses are overlooked. All too often credit is unfairly dished out to a player blessed with a 6-foot-8, 240-pound frame, the ability to handle and pass like a point guard, sky like a two-guard yet dominate the post like a power forward. Scouts, coaches and fans alike drool over that 6-foot-10 powerful big

an integral role on Arizona’s Sweet 16 team as a freshman before snatching up the starting job his sophomore season and playing the role of defensive stalwart from there on out. During the last four years, Fogg developed from what Miler called a “really bad” defender to someone who can lock down point guards, shooting guards and small forwards as well as the best guards in the country. Then there’s Perry. The 6-foot-7, 217-pound senior and John A. Logan Community College transfer is an undersized tweener with a funky jump shot and no defined position. He arrived at Arizona with low expectations, and it took him 11 games to hit the double-digit scoring mark for the first time. But Perry went on to play a huge role in UA’s Elite Eight run and is now “the heart and soul” of this year’s Wildcats’ team, according to Miller. Perry has no business starting at

take into account the advantages and disadvantages that come with each individual player. Ideally, success should be defined by how well a player uses his given tools and canvas to create a masterpiece. Work ethic is the only quality a player can control, so it’s that player who out-produces his star ranking and physical limitations that should be praised. This brings us to Kyle Fogg and Jesse Perry. No two players have used desire and work ethic to overcome their physical limitations more than Arizona’s senior leaders. Fogg came to Tucson as an unheralded 3-star recruit with not many offers coming from elsewhere. During the initial transition out of the Lute Olson era, Fogg wasn’t expected to contribute right away or be anything but solid for four years at UA. The Brea, Calif., native didn’t get the memo, as he ended up playing

man or that 6-foot-6 shooting guard who can jump out of the gym, as talent and potential continue to rule the basketball circuit. In the meantime, lost in translation are the players who may not have the biggest upside, but work tirelessly to make the best of their physical gifts. Think about it, should LeBron James really be held to a higher standard than Steve Nash all because he was already a walking triple double when he popped out of the womb? Nash turned a 6-foot-3, 190-pound frame and below-average quickness and speed into two MVPs through nonstop work and the perfection of his craft. Nash has maximized the potential that’s limited by his size and quickness, while James has barely scratched the surface of his ceiling. Yet at the end of the day, it’s James who will be considered one of the greatest players of all time. The barometer for success doesn’t

center at any level, let alone for a major Division I program. Yet through his work ethic and desire to improve, Perry has come full circle and overcome the odds stacked against him. Fogg and Perry may never turn into big-time pros at the next level, if they become pros at all. They may never carve out a legacy similar to those whose jerseys hang in the rafters of McKale Center. But as Arizona’s senior leaders take to the McKale Center floor for the last time on Saturday, soak in the blood, sweat and tears this duo put in to outperform their potential for the good of Arizona basketball. If success were measured the right way, Fogg and Perry would surely never be forgotten.
