The Student Union Memorial Center North Ballroom hosted various cultural booths showcasing art, clothing, music and photos of various countries the Peace Corps works in on Tuesday night. The Peace Corps Fair provided students with the opportunity to learn about the Peace Corps by bringing in previous volunteers to share their experiences. The number of Peace Corps applicants from the UA doubled this year from last year, said Lauren Maghran, UA recruiter for the Peace Corps. “I know our numbers were low last year,” Maghran said, “but I think they are going up, and U of A students seem very interested.”
Eller College of Management MBA programs had a booth at the fair and Sylvia Muñoz, the MBA operations manager, said having the Peace Corps on your application is an advantage. “It shows your global perspective and experience,” Muñoz said. “A lot of our MBAs have their Peace Corps services in developing countries where they created business development.” Moira Alexander, a public health graduate student who went to Morocco with the Peace Corps, said her Peace Corps experience is valuable as a graduate student. When a professor asks if anyone has had an experience with an agency, a lot of the students who have joined the Peace Corps raise their hands, Alexander explained.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces made its first-ever appearance in Tucson on Tuesday as part of the Project Outreach program. Project Outreach is a national program that chooses certain cases to be argued on college campuses and allows law students to participate in the official proceedings of the case by delivering an argument for the side of their choice, called an amicus brief, before the court. The court consists of five judges and has jurisdiction over all members of the armed forces on active duty and any person subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The court met at the James E. Rogers College of Law to hear the argument of United States v. Staff Sgt. Bruce L. Kelly. “I’m actually interested in getting a job with the Air Force JAG [Judge Advocate General] Corps, so I wanted to come watch and see the military court,” said Kevin Zinke, a third-year UA law student. “I just wanted to see how the attorneys interacted with the judges and observe.” The appellate court examined the ruling of Kelly’s court-martial conviction for possession of child pornography. The appellant’s counsel argued that the military abused its discretion when it failed to suppress evidence of child pornography discovered on Kelly’s computer during an unreasonable search to find contraband. The search was conducted after Kelly was wounded in Iraq and evacuated back to the U.S., as stated in the final case brief. Kelly’s counsel also argued that the army court erred when it created a new exception to the Fourth Amendment that allowed the government to search his personal computer on the basis that the government was not “certain” or “absolutely clear” that it would be returned to the wounded appellant, also stated in the final case brief. In addition to hearing both the appellant and the government’s arguments, third-year UA law student

involves removing all the ambient light that is collected when studying TrES-3b; essentially, researchers need to isolate the light that they want. The project is ongoing, so as students graduate, new students will take over. This will allow students to gain research experience and see if the field of astronomy is a field they wish to enter. “Our original intent for the project was not, ‘We want to be published.’ It was always, ‘Oh, yeah, it would be really nice if we got published,’ but it was meant as research experience for undergraduates,” Towner said,
“because research experience can be a hard thing to get.” Towner plans on going to graduate school, and she said she feels being involved with this project gives her an edge for admission. Now, the project is looking at 12 other planets, and the club hopes to publish more academic articles in the future, Turner said. Since the spring 2012 semester, the extrasolar planet project has been offered as a course, and students can earn one to three credits, depending on how much work they do, Turner added. Anyone can get involved with
the project, even if they are in areas of study that are not traditionally involved with this type of work, according to Amanda WalkerLaFollette, president of the Astronomy Club and a junior studying astronomy and physics. Walker-LaFollette stressed the significance of having student work published. “It is a really big deal we got this published … We are all students who are working on this project, and it is all students who were writing the paper,” Walker-LaFollette said. “And basically everything we did, everything we have done, is all students.”

Symposium reflects on 10 years of war SARAH-JAYNE SIMON Arizona Daily Wildcat RYAN REVOCK/ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

UA hosts video contest to promote Main Library RACHEL MCCLUSKEY Arizona Daily Wildcat
The UA is putting $500 up for grabs in a contest for students to create a video to promote the Main Library. Videos must be between two and five minutes long, include two facts listed on the library’s web page about the video contest, be uploaded publicly to a website such as YouTube or Vimeo and be appropriate for a wide audience. The contest began Feb. 4 and the deadline is April 15. However, so far, no students have signed up, according to Nicole Pagowsky, the instructional services librarian. After seeing the success of other schools, like the University of Minnesota, whose video is up on the UA library’s website as an example, the UA library staff was inspired to host its own contest. “We saw there was success with it, and we were looking at updating our orientation materials,” Pagowsky said. “We wanted to make it more fun, get more student engagement, get students in the library and give them an opportunity to talk about what they like, and we can see what students like about the library through this as well.” Currently enrolled UA students can submit a video by themselves or in a group to win $500 as first prize.

“I think the experience is really difficult to get in another way,” Alexander said. “We’ve had a lot of different experiences in getting grants, organizing communities and working with multilevel agencies.” At the start of the event, about 40 students were walking around the booths and gathering information. Chelsea Olson, a freshman majoring in East Asian Studies, said she had a lot of teachers that have been in the Peace Corps and they recommended she visit the fair. EJ Richardson, a political science senior, said he heard about the fair from his political science class. “I have an emphasis in foreign affairs, so I have an interest in working around the world,” Richardson said, “and the fact that there was free food helped, too. I was just interested in meeting the people and seeing their experiences.” Kelli Williams, an anthropology junior, said she plans on joining the Peace Corps and is interested in possibly traveling to South America and Asia. “I think it’s a good cause and probably a good way to live, financially, two years after college,” Williams said. Leah Iverson, a public health graduate student who traveled to El Salvador, explained that returning Peace Corps volunteers could be eligible for the Coverdell Fellows Program, which includes a full tuition waver at the UA. Students in the program must complete an internship for two years to fulfill community service requirements. Organizations like the community food
bank were also present at the fair so that students could gather more information about community service. The goals of the Peace Corps are sharing the American culture with people abroad, providing technical support and learning about a different country’s culture and sharing that experience back in the U.S., according to Iverson. The African countries’ booth included drums played by Desneige Hallbert, a landscape architecture graduate student, and dancing by Jessamyn Bowling, a public health graduate student. Hallbert said that she designed her first garden when she was with the Peace Corps, and that was how she discovered what she wanted to do. Hallbert urged students to visit Africa with the Peace Corps. “People who go to [the] Peace Corps in Asia, they come back very spiritual. The people who go to South America come back political. The people who go to Africa come back dancing and laughing,” Hallbert said. “There is so much culture there. There’s just so many colors, and it feels like a big hug. They [students] should go for the colors, the smells, the music and [the fact that] everyone dances.” Ben Pawlowski, an art education graduate student, said that the Peace Corps was the most logical and fulfilling way to get international experience and that volunteering changed his perspective on life. “I feel like it gave me a thicker skin in a lot of ways,” Pawlowski said. “I tend to not worry about things as much; like, what’s the worst that can happen? I have a place to sleep and [get] food. I just tended to be a lot more satisfied with life [after my experience].”
The UA will recognize lessons from the Iraq War at a symposium held on campus today. The Southwest Initiative for the Study of Middle East Conflicts, in collaboration with the School of Middle Eastern and North African Studies, the Center for Middle Eastern Studies and the School of Government and Public Policy, will host an event today titled “10 Years Later: Lessons from Iraq.” The event includes two sessions: The first session, “American Policy and Lessons Learned,” will take place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m, and the second session, “Iraqi Narratives of Insecurity and Transformation,” will take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., according to Leila Hudson, associate director of MENAS and the director of SISMEC. “This is an event to commemorate the beginning of the Iraq War, which will be 10 years ago this March,” Hudson said. “The point is basically to get Tucsonans that have participated in this decade of war in some way to reflect, not only on the conflict itself, but on the 10 years of recovery and rebuilding. It is an important opportunity for academics, but also for those people who really lived the war to make a statement that they want the American public to hear.” Each session will have five panelists, including both Americans and Iraqis who have experienced the war in various ways, said Lyndall Herman, research assistant at SISMEC. “There is a diversity of opinions around everything that happened,” Herman said. “There continues to be an impact that people are still seeing, there is still violence 10 years later, and the community as a whole needs to recognize the repercussions of what it means.” The sessions will be followed by a keynote address from Joseph Sassoon of Georgetown University entitled “Iraq: The Legacy of Violence.” “We would like [the audience] to get out of [this event] a thoughtful statement of many different voices talking and reflecting in a raw and personal kind of way on the last decade of conflict,” Hudson said. “Whatever they have to say will be extremely important for those of us to hear who didn’t participate directly in the war.” All of the activities today are free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception. “I think it is important for us to recognize the 10-year mark for the war in Iraq,” said Brittany Vogl, an education sophomore, “because it is the defining example of conflict and interventionism in our world today.”
Today in the Kiva Room in the Student Union Memorial Center: Session 1: American Policy and Lessons Learned 9 a.m.-11 a.m. Session 2: Iraqi Narratives of Insecurity and Transformation 1 p.m.-3 p.m. Keynote Speaker: Joseph Sassoon 3:30 p.m.-5 p.m. Reception to follow.

Michelle Behan, aided by fellow students David Potts and Matthew Randall and supervised by law professor Paul Bennett, was selected to deliver an amicus argument to the court. Behan sided with the appellant, Kelly, arguing that the military court exceeded its power in allowing an unreasonable search of private property. After the official court proceedings were finished, the judges stayed in
the room to answer any questions from the audience not pertaining to the case. The room became relaxed, with many of the judges cracking jokes and showing the lighter side of their job. At one point during the question and answer session, Judge Margaret A. Ryan turned the tables by complimenting Behan on her argument and asking her to share with the audience the process she used to create it. “I consider it one of the greatest honors since being a student,” Behan said, about the opportunity to present to the court.

Fla. proposal to cut tuition of students in STEM fields misguided KIMBERLIE WANG Arizona Daily Wildcat
ould you rather do what you love for little pay, or do something you can tolerate and roll in riches? Florida Gov. Rick Scott has openly placed more value on science, technology, engineering and mathematics majors, also known as STEM majors, in proposing a tuition reduction for students majoring in those areas. Although the plan seems strategic in directing students toward majors that lead to higher-paying jobs, this proposal would have consequences that cannot be ignored. STEM majors are the most expensive to fund, so the tuition reduction would require the allocation of other financial resources to compensate for the change. Scott proposes using state financing or private-public partnerships or raising tuition costs for other majors. Liberal arts professors have protested this change, stating that it would lead to a decline in the number of students taking humanities classes and therefore a decrease in department funding. Liberal arts majors are known for requiring critical thinking and fostering strong writing and communication skills, qualities sought after in every field. Declaring certain majors superior to others destroys a significant aspect of undergraduate education — the opportunity to figure out what you like. Many of us begin college without a major declared because during our undergraduate years, we have the chance to explore where our strengths lie and what best suits us personally. Monetary incentives could sway students to pursue unsatisfactory career paths. The prejudice against liberal arts majors can also be misleading. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, 51 percent of humanities majors and 45 percent of social sciences majors who applied in 2010 were accepted into medical schools. A study by a Chicago State University professor indicated that the majors with the highest rate of acceptance for law school included philosophy, anthropology, history and English. It is not your area of study that matters, but how you apply the skills you acquire in your undergraduate career. Obviously, film majors shouldn’t be searching for jobs in astronomical research, but you should be able to pursue a degree in music while simultaneously fulfilling the prerequisites for medical school. A diverse, determined individual who is capable of tackling multiple areas of study successfully will stand out no matter what career he or she decides to pursue in the long run. My high school graduating class was full of aspiring physicians and engineers. When graduation rolled around, it seemed as if everyone suddenly wanted to be a surgeon, even if their academic record didn’t match their ambitions. In our poor economy, many are pursuing degrees simply because they are known for leading to high-paying jobs, with no regard for their own personal abilities or interests. With Scott’s plan, the pool of students interested in STEM majors will grow for the wrong reasons. According to The New York Times, studies have shown that 60 percent of students majoring in engineering and the sciences end up switching to a different subject or fail to receive a degree at all. Using reduced tuition to attract students to pursue specific studies that are extremely rigorous wastes not only students’ and professors’ time but also the students’ and the school’s money. Media outlets and politicians propagate the idea that our country is facing a shortage of scientists, but statistics and unemployment rates undermine this notion. Sure, petroleum engineers have good job prospects following graduation, but what about chemists and biologists? Biology majors face a 7.7 percent unemployment rate, while drama and theater arts graduates face 7.8 percent, and yet, drama and theater arts majors are the ones who have to fight the title of being “useless.” There is no good reason for schools to use money as bait to steer students into STEM majors and away from their skills and ambitions. —Kimberlie Wang is a physiology freshman.

Post-rock juggernaut Caspian plays at Club Congress tonight K.C. LIBMAN Arizona Daily Wildcat
yricism and vocals seem to be as necessary to popular music as melody itself. But since the voice is usually a band’s hallmark, rather than the emotion it conveys musically, how do you carve a niche without a voice? For Erin Burke-Moran of Massachusetts post-rock mainstay Caspian, it’s a matter of experience and how life lessons translate into the band’s work. On 2012’s Waking Season, Caspian has refined its signature sound more than ever before. “Part of what helped us write this last album was just all the touring that we did and different things we saw,” Burke-Moran said. “The more you experience, the more you have to put back into your art.” That artistic return shows on Waking Season, the band’s third LP since 2007. There’s hardly an element of repetition to the record, as it shifts seamlessly from texture to texture throughout each track. That fluid nature was no mistake. “If you just do something, and do something for a long time and shoot for excellence, then you get somewhere with it,” Burke-Moran said.
trying to tell you, its work must be revisited. Hard work must pay off, as Waking Season was named Spin “You kind of need to listen to it — it’s not something that Magazine’s “Best Post-Rock Album of the Year” in 2012, and people always do because it’s kind of fed to us with pop culture,” earned equally high marks from Alternative Press. Unlike some of its musical peers, Caspian doesn’t eschew the he said. “It’s good for people to be challenged that way.” It seems that the introspective nature of grandiose “post-rock” label. Rather, the band embraces it wholeheartedly, subverting the pretension characteristic of post-rock bands that instrumental music is finally seeing a resurgence. The reception of bands like Mogwai and Explosions In The Sky is an indication attempt to be relevant outside of their realm. of post-rock’s increasingly mainstream “Post-rock kind of has this status, though Caspian’s use of texture connotation of no one wanting to Caspian at Club Congress, and emotive dynamics sets it apart from be a part of it in the goofiest way,” 8 p.m. $12, 18+ its peers. Burke-Moran explained. “It’s a Caspian may have needed this wave, and if you’re going to be a popularity all along. While Burke-Moran part of anything, you have to hop said he feels that Waking Season “was a culmination of what on something that’s bigger than yourself.” Caspian was trying to do for a while,” the newfound acceptance Burke-Moran is a perfect example of how self-awareness is crucial for staying true to one’s art, and his view of instrumental of the band’s sound seems to be an indication of longevity. It’s safe to assume that the Caspian’s success with Waking music’s role in society is just as reflective. Season will be nothing but a positive experience to channel into There is a definite correlation between bands like Caspian a new chapter of the band’s history. However, Burke-Moran said and classical composers, as both genres rely on musical he isn’t quite sure yet what direction Caspian will take next. dynamics to convey emotion. “I don’t know where you find inspiration exactly,” he said, Yet for Burke-Moran, Caspian’s brand of music isn’t meant to be consumed in a single serving. To really grasp what the band is “but hopefully it finds you.”
Ex-Cowboy saddles up for La Cocina ALEX WHELAN Arizona Daily Wildcat
Ex-Cowboy is a band that needs to be heard instead of read about. The longtime project of Tucson native Michael Huerta, Ex-Cowboy falls somewhere between the moody finger-pickings of Elliott Smith and the foreboding growls of the Appalachia. Throwing descriptors at ExCowboy is almost a disservice to Huerta’s sound, however, and he’s gathered some of the city’s finest to help him capture that sound on record. “I think a lot of it was just me fleshing out fantasies of what I wanted these songs to be all along,” Huerta said about recording Ex-Cowboy’s forthcoming self-titled album. “I always like taking the minimal stuff and then adding these other sounds. It’s like the sum of all parts.” The album, set to officially release tonight at La Cocina, is a 10-track collection that Huerta said is made up of both old and new songs, connected through feeling. “The idea was to have all the songs sound seamless,” Huerta said. “Hopefully, they sound like they’re all from the same place.” A large part of Ex-Cowboy came from Huerta’s collaboration with local musician Logan Greene. The album marks the first time many of the songs have been arranged and documented, as well as Greene’s debut as a producer.
EXCOWBOY, the longtime project of Tucsonan Michael Huerta, is set to release its self-titled album tonight.
“I heard Mike playing around a lot and almost started to arrange things in my head,” Greene said. “Finally, I approached him about doing it, but doing it right, with a budget and a nice studio and everything.” The record does indeed sound more professional than most albums by musicians with DIY backgrounds. “It’s the most ambitious thing I’ve ever been a part of,” Huerta said. As is to be expected with a largescale album like Ex-Cowboy, both Greene and Huerta admitted there
were hiccups. “Some ideas didn’t work. Others did right away,” Greene said. “It was definitely a lot of finding out what works in a studio like that.” Although the two began the recording process in March of 2012, they decided to take the summer off to generate some more ideas, which Huerta said was a bad choice for momentum. Now, after a year’s work and countless collaborators and promotions, the Ex-Cowboy CD is about to
be released. “It was just such a re- Tucson is a great place to do it. “I love the idea of warding process, living in a harsh desert communicating Ex-Cowboy and making music with people and here,” Huerta said. other musicians Release “It’s hard to survive in like that,” Huerta at La Cocina the desert, just like it’s said. “It was defi10 p.m. 21+ tough to play music. … nitely a collaboraLiving here is going to tive effort.” impact what you make, Even though he has finally finished his album, Huerta what I make.” Nonetheless, Ex-Cowboy can rest has no illusions about the road still ahead.

POLICE BEAT MAXWELL J. MANGOLD Arizona Daily Wildcat
Pull up a chair
A UA student was cited and released after vomiting in a chair in the Coronado Residence Hall lobby at 1:45 a.m. on Feb. 23. University of Arizona Police Department officers went to the hall in response to a report of student throwing up in a downstairs bathroom. UA Emergency Medical Services arrived with UAPD and immediately assessed the man, who was slumped in a lobby chair. The student seemed intoxicated, as he slurred his speech and had bloodshot, watery eyes. While being evaluated by medical personnel, the student threw up. “I had five beers,” he said, “but I was drunk before that.” EMS determined that the student did not need to go to the hospital. Police cited and released the student for minor in possession, then took him to his room in Navajo-Pinal Residence Hall.
Unlucky in love
UAPD officers conducted a welfare check on a UA student at Cochise Residence Hall at 6:32 p.m. on Feb. 23 after the student made Facebook comments about his frustration with women. “I’m frustrated in my lack of confidence with girls. Why can’t I be like every other guy? Yes I am pathetic. I am not likeable in any relationship level. I am a miserable drunk,” read a comment from the student. The man’s comments were unlike his normal behavior, according to the reporting party, who was worried about the man’s mental state. Police spoke with the student in his room, which appeared neat. UAPD didn’t see any sign that the student might have been drinking or using drugs. The man told police he was “a little frustrated” since he couldn’t play on his club baseball team and because of his lack of confidence with women. However, he said that he is doing well in school and is looking forward to graduating from the UA and then pursuing a career in the FBI. A Southern Arizona Mental Health Corporation crisis specialist then spoke with the student and saw no indication he was a threat to himself or others. Police told the student about Campus Health Service resources in case he had any further questions, and provided him with his case number.
Man on a ledge
UAPD evaluated a UA student at Highland Avenue Parking Garage after spotting him outside the wall of the garage on the fourth level at 6:22 p.m. on Feb 23. When police spoke with him, the student was lying down on a red brick fixture parallel to the wall. UAPD asked about the man’s mental health, in fear he was contemplating suicide, but the student “responded confidently he was fine,” and added he was looking forward to graduating next year. “No big deal to be on the ledge,” he said, adding that he wasn’t afraid of heights. Police told the student that the purpose of the wall was to keep patrons in the garage and that it was unacceptable to cross it. The student apologized and said he understood his actions and was “thankful” for UAPD’s concern. Police then issued an informative referral to the Dean of Students regarding the event.

Lady Luck abandons UA in 3-1 loss Zack rosenblatt Arizona Daily Wildcat
The No. 10 Arizona baseball team has had luck on its side recently. Twice against San Jose State, on Friday and Sunday, the Wildcats mounted late-inning comebacks to win. That didn’t happen for them against Utah Valley State on Tuesday night, as Arizona fell 3-1 at Hi Corbett Field. It was the Wildcats’ first loss at home since May 21 of last year. “I was really disappointed in our performance,” said outfielder Johnny Field, who had one hit and one walk in three at-bats. “We just did a horrible job of leaving guys on base all night and not coming up with any big hits.” But with one out in the eighth inning on Tuesday night, it looked like Lady Luck was returning to the Wildcats’ side. Arizona was trailing 3-1 when Arizona third baseman Brandon Dixon hit a routine pop-up to center field. Wolverine center fielder Jordy Hart fumbled the catch, giving the Wildcats men on first and second with one out. But Arizona couldn’t convert. Trent Gilbert flew out to Hart, who didn’t drop it this time, then Kevin Newman flew out to right field to end the inning. Outfielders Tyler Parmenter and Scott Kingery both walked in the ninth, but Riley Moore struck out to end the game. Arizona was 2-of-11 with runners in scoring position on the night. “We struggled a lot,” head coach Andy Lopez said. “I tip my hat to their guy. He pitched good and made pitches when he had to. In this park, when you don’t hit it in the gap, it’s just a long fly ball, and they’ll learn.
Hopefully,they’ll learn quickly.” Starting pitcher Andrew Freter lasted 5.2 innings for the Wolverines, allowing three hits with three walks and a strikeout. The Wildcats fell into the early 3-1 hole largely because of the troubles of starter Tyler Crawford (1-1), who lasted 2.1 innings. “He said he felt great,” Lopez said, “but he didn’t look very good.” In his second start of the season, Crawford gave up four hits and three runs (one earned) and walked one batter with three strikeouts. “He’s all right,” Field said. “I just don’t think he had his best control today, and that kind of hurt him a little bit. I thought he did an all right job. His best control wasn’t there like it usually is.” The second inning in particular was a struggle for Crawford. After he mowed down Utah Valley 1-2-3 in the first inning, with two strikeouts, he opened the second inning by giving up a hit to Utah Valley’s Kai Hatch, who reached on a fielding error from Dixon. Then Colby Croft singled, and Kade Andrus grounded into a double play wherein Hatch scored. After a single, a triple — which came when left fielder Joseph Maggi lost the ball in the lights — and one more run from the Wolverines, Crawford ended the inning on his third strikeout. Crawford was removed in the third inning with one out and men on first and third for right-hander Nick Cunningham, who pitched 5.2 shutout innings in relief. Cunningham had a career night, setting personal bests in innings pitched and strikeouts (five). He allowed three hits and walked two batters. “I thought I threw well,” Cunningham said. “You can always be better. There never is a perfect

outing, but I just wanted to give my team a chance to win, and I thought we had that.” Arizona scored its first run on an RBI single from second baseman Trent Gilbert in the fourth inning. Gilbert finished with two hits in four at-bats. The Wildcats might’ve scored earlier in the inning, but catcher Riley Moore got caught in a run-down between second and third and was
tagged out. “We did a few foolish things that cost you in the course of a game,” Lopez said. “Tonight was a close game. That doesn’t cost you if it’s a high-scoring game, but in a close game that bites you, and it bit us tonight.” Freshman Jackson Willeford made his debut, starting as designated hitter for the Wildcats, but didn’t register a hit in two at-bats. He grounded out to first base in the
third inning and popped out to center in the fifth before Zach Gibbons pinchhit for Willeford in the seventh inning. Gibbons promptly walked. Maggi singled to give Kingery men on first and third with two outs, giving the Wildcats a prime chance to start a comeback down 3-1, but Kingery flew out to left field. Arizona will take on Utah Valley State again at 1 p.m. today at Hi Corbett.
Talented Trojans await Year two with Wildcats in Los Angeles Rodriguez: back to basics for UA
zack rosenblatt Arizona Daily Wildcat
When the No. 11 Arizona Wildcats face USC tonight in the first game in a Southern California road swing, don’t expect to see the same Trojans squad that Arizona obliterated a month ago. On Jan. 26, the Wildcats defeated USC 74-50 in what might be Arizona’s lone true blowout of the conference season. But USC was only in its fourth game with a new coach and was coming off an overtime loss to ASU. Sure, the Trojans are 12-15 overall and 7-7 in the Pac-12, but the record doesn’t tell the whole story. Now, with more games under interim head coach Bob Cantu’s belt, the Trojans have played much better, winning four of six games since the Arizona loss. “They’ve done a great job, really, when they left our game,” head coach Sean Miller said. “They’ve played their best basketball they’ve played all season long.” Outside of the Arizona loss and a 75-59 loss to UCLA on Sunday, the Trojans have lost five Pac-12 games by an average of 5.8 points per game. Although USC might not be in the conference race, in tonight’s game, it can play the role of spoiler for Arizona. The Wildcats are locked in a tie with Oregon at the top of the Pac-12, so a California sweep of USC and UCLA would do wonders for their conference title chances. Oregon has the tiebreaker, having won the season series with Arizona, so a loss from the Ducks to Oregon State on Thursday would certainly help Arizona’s cause. The Southern California road trip hasn’t always been kind to the Wildcats, though, as Arizona is just 3-7 in the last five years of making the trip. The Wildcats will play the Trojans at Galen Center tyler besh/arizona Daily Wildcat in Los Angeles at 7:30 p.m. on the Pac-12 Networks. Here are some of the key storylines for tonight’s FRESHMAN CENTER Kaleb Tarczewski averaged 11 points and seven rebounds in the Wildcats’ last two games, earning a Pac-12 Player of the game: Week nomination.
Trojans got talent
For all their struggles, the Trojans still have a few talented players on the roster. In recent games, junior guard J.T. Terrell has been a standout. The Burlington, N.C., product has scored 15.2 points per game in his last five on 44 percent shooting. Even more impressive is his efficiency from deep: Terrell has hit 3.4 3-pointers per game in that span at a 48.6 percent clip. On the year, he’s fourth in the conference with 2.2 3-pointers made per game. “J.T. Terrell really started to play well,” Miller said. “He’s a guy that can make shots. He went on a run from three, and the percentage that he shot since our game and his points per game for USC has been a much different story. A lot of that has to do with how well he shot the ball from three.” Against Arizona, Terrell shot 1-for-7 with three points. The Trojans’ strength, though, lies in the frontcourt, as USC employs two 7-footers in Dewayne Dedmon and Omar Oraby. Dedmon is the starting center, and he’s a solid shotblocker, swatting 2.1 blocks per game, good for thirdbest in the conference. As a team, USC is second in the Pac-12 with five blocks per game. “They have a lot of talented big guys and [Eric] Wise, who can score,” Miller said. Eric Wise is USC’s leading scorer at 11.9 points per
game. At point guard, Jio Fontan is solid; he’s second in the conference in assists with 5.1 per contest. What does that all add up to? “You put all of that together and you have one or two players shooting the ball well. They can beat anybody in our conference, and they’ve really shown that,” Miller said.
Arizona’s man in the middle
Going up against Dedmon in the low post will be Arizona freshman Kaleb Tarczewski, who’s really come on lately. Tarczewski was Arizona’s Pac-12 Player of the Week nominee (he lost to Cal’s Justin Cobbs) last week by averaging 11.0 points and seven rebounds per game while shooting 66.7 percent (8-of-12) from the field. He scored a season-high 12 points on Saturday against Washington State. “Lately, it’s important we get him the ball,” Miller said. “That’s ever-evolving. There’s a time where that wouldn’t have been smart for us to try to go to him more, but right now, no question [that] the more we’re able to get him the ball in scoring position, I think the better our team is.” Tarczewski is shooting 64.0 percent from the field over his last six games (16-of-25), and on the season the 7-footer averages 6.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per game while shooting 52.0 percent from the field.
“We had a choice. We could have tried to play with it, but we’d rather have everybody at 100 percent in Shut up and work.

Hansen confident Wildcats will ‘have a good showing’ at Pac-12’s EVAN ROSENFELD Arizona Daily Wildcat
Arizona’s No. 10 women’s swim team travels to Federal Way, Wash., this week to compete in the Pac-12 Conference Women’s Swimming and Men’s and Women’s Diving Championships, where the Wildcats will attempt to climb to the top of the conference and qualify a few more swimmers with NCAA national times. The meets will be carried on tape delay on the Pac-12 Networks. The women will compete in swimming events against ASU, Cal, Oregon State, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Utah and Washington State. They will begin with the finals of the 200-yard medley relay and the 800y-freestyle relay, which are scheduled for 6 p.m. today. The divers will compete against Arizona State, Cal, Stanford, UCSB, USC, UCLA and Utah beginning on Thursday. “I think we are in a really good place in preparation for NCAA’s,” head coach Eric Hansen said. “We are going to use this meet as quality speed-work in preparation for that. I think anything we do at this meet is a bonus because we aren’t completely prepared — we’re a little tired, but we’re in a good spot.” Preliminaries for the 50y and 500y-freestyle events, 200y-individual medley and women’s 3M diving competition will take place Thursday along with the men’s 1M diving preliminary and final. Junior freestylist Margo Geer looks to complete an exceptional season where she is already in possession of the NCAA’s top time in the 50y-freestyle. “I’m also excited about our divers,” Hansen said. “I think we are ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT FILE PHOTO going to have a good showing.

Last year at the Pac-12 Championships, Pickens placed second on the 1M and fourth on the 3M and went on to win a pair of top-four finishes at the NCAA Championships. Freshman diver Rafael Quintero is eager to compete as well, coming off of a hot streak to represent Arizona’s men in competition. He is considered one of the nation’s top freshman divers and closed the season with 12 straight top-two finishes after sweeping the 1M, 3M and platform events at the Bruin Invitational in January. Preliminaries for the 400y-individual medley, 100y-butterfly, 200-freestyle, 100y-breaststroke, 100y-backstroke and men’s 3M events will take place on Friday. The women’s 1M preliminary and final will occur shortly before the finals of the previous events. Five-time All-American senior Ellyn Baumgardner has contributed to the women’s success this year throughout the dual meet season and holds the third-fastest time in the nation in the 100y-breaststroke event. Saturday’s events begin with the women’s platform event, followed by the preliminaries of the 200y-backstroke, 100y-freestyle, 200y-breaststroke and 200y-butterfly events, along with preliminaries of the 1650y-freestyle event. Finals will occur shortly afterward. Freshman Bonnie Brandon has enjoyed a breakout season this year and will be competing in her first championship season. “I’m looking forward to experiencing my first Pac-12’s,” Brandon said. “Hopefully there will be a lot of energy, and hopefully we will all swim fast. I expect us to come together and race hard. I think we are going to do well this week and surprise some people.”

The Arizona Daily Wildcat had The No. 11 Arizona Wildcats have the talent to make a run in the NCAA a chance to speak briefly with Williams about the Wildcats and his tournament. Derrick Williams knows a little bit store opening. about that. The former Wildcats forward On other former Arizona players’ carried Arizona to the Elite Eight in awareness of his store: Williams: It’s tough for all the guys 2011 and used his March Madness performance as a launching point to come back, especially during the NBA season. It just happened to be for his NBA career. In the 2011 NBA Draft, the a day off, and I just decided to come Minnesota Timberwolves selected down here and enjoy Tucson.

the talent. I would say they have more talent then we had when I was a sophomore. They have good freshmen, good leadership in Solomon and Kevin and those guys and a balanced offense and defense. If their big men stay out of foul trouble and the guards play like they’re supposed to play, they can make a big run. On how hard it is to be a freshman at a major college basketball program: It’s tough. I really felt like I was doing that last year when I was with the T-Wolves. You’re going to struggle as a rookie or a freshman. With things like that, it’s how you respond and overcome things like that, and you know as freshmen we all struggle. It wasn’t just myself — Momo [former UA guard Lamont Jones], Kev, Solo, all those guys — then we came back ready to attack, and that’s what we did.

Carey still in good standing with Rodriguez
On Tuesday morning, Rodriguez addressed Carey’s future. Carey has faced his share of legal troubles this season, including a domestic violence dispute with an ex-girlfriend at the home the two shared and a spat with campus police at a men’s basketball game for refusing to leave the game, despite not having any tickets. “He’s progressing well, and he’ll be with us this spring,” Rodriguez said. “His process of making sure he shows the true person that he is is still ongoing, but he’s doing well. We’ve got close tabs on him, and he knows that. He knows he’s made some mistakes and has to prove what kind of person he is.”
