A UA graduate student is compiling research about how sex in the media influences American youths’ sexual behavior. Paul Wright has reviewed previous studies with his advisor Dale Kunkel, who spent the majority of his career studying mass media and its influence on the youth in society. Kunkel’s research has helped Wright draw his conclusions. “What we find from the research that I have done is that sex on television is sanitized and glamorized,” Kunkel said. “It is glamorized in the sense that people that engage in sex find it rewarding and it makes them happy. It is sanitized in the sense that bad outcome(s) rarely occur.” Wright has documented the patterns according to the previous studies and chose to dig deeper into the lack of risk and responsibility messages that should be associated with sex. Wright also found a connection between the media and child development. “A general child development outcome is that kids that have not (had sex) are doing better in life,” Wright said. “The kids that have had sex are more likely to have academic issues, lower educational aspirations, higher likelihood of depression — which is not necessarily caused by having sex.” Some topics that Wright usually found unaddressed were lack of contraception use, having sex with multiple partners, pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. Wright is strictly working with behavioral outcomes of teenagers between the ages of 13 and 18. Some studies Wright included in his article look at whether teenagers have had intercourse and whether there is solid evidence that exposure to sexual media increases the likelihood of a teenager having sex. “We now have some evidence that exposure to sexual media decreases the likelihood of contraception, increases the likelihood of an STI and increases the likelihood of making someone pregnant if you are a guy and becoming pregnant if you are a girl,”Wright said. Kunkel has previously received grants from the Kaiser Foundation to research sex on television. Wright is a UA communications doctoral student. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from California State University, Fullerton. “He is one of the top students I have worked with. He is an incredibly strong writer.” said Kunkel, who usually only takes one graduate student each year. “You can have all the greatest studies and data, but if you can’t convey the information clearly and accurately, then you will not be as successful.” Wright, whose article compiles previous research from 23 U.S. studies on mainstream media, completed the piece which is now under review for publication. “It is very important to do the studies, but if nobody ever sits down and reads all the studies, thinks about them, and draws conclusions across them, then it’s a worthless research endeavor,” Wright expressed.

Pre-business sophomore I want to talk to you about infomercials. Infomercials! Billy Mays. Do you watch a lot of infomercials? I see a fair share of them, just watching TV at night. If they’re on, I’ll watch them and laugh. See if it’s interesting or not. Do you watch a lot? I see a fair share of them just watching TV at night. If they’re on, I’ll watch them and laugh. See if it’s interesting or not. Have you ever found yourself watching an infomercial longer than you should? Yes, actually. Do you remember which one? Geez, there’s a couple, actually. The blender things, where you chop everything. The Magic Bullet! Yeah. That was it. I watched that for about five to 10 minutes. Have you ever contemplated buying something? Maybe the Magic Bullet. Otherwise, I’d have to have a couple margaritas to even think about getting anything from the commercials. Have you seen the Snuggie commercials? Yeah. (Laughs) Why don’t you just join the cast of “Harry Potter” or something if you’re going to wear that? Have you seen Snuggies for dogs? No. I have not seen that yet. They make them for dogs, and they make the dogs sit straight up like humans in these commercials. What dog is this? It’s a tiny dog. Well, that’s the problem, first off. A tiny dog is not a real dog. You need, like, a Labrador or something. A Labrador would never do that. I think if you dress up a dog in anything, much less a Snuggie, it’s going to be ugly anyway. It’s just dumb. They have fur coats. They don’t need Snuggies to keep warm. It’s really the most pointless thing I’ve ever heard in my entire life. How much do they cost? Fifteen dollars probably. Buy one get one free. Yeah, it’s not well spent money if you’re buying something like that. And you’re dogs going to look like a tool. Like an old lady with her dog and its sweater at Christmas time. You’re very passionate about this. — Katie Gault

While walking to class, students unprepared for a rainy day try to stay dry. The lucky few who were aware of the forecast came prepared with umbrellas and hoodies.

Scientists seek permission to dig up Da Vinci ROME — The legend of Leonardo da Vinci is shrouded in mystery: How did he die? Are the remains buried in a French chateau really those of the Renaissance master? Was the“Mona Lisa”a self-portrait in disguise? A group of Italian scientists believes the key to solving those puzzles lies with the remains — and they say they are seeking permission from French authorities to dig up

the body to conduct carbon and DNA testing. If the skull is intact, the scientists can go to the heart of a question that has fascinated scholars and the public for centuries: The identity of the “Mona Lisa.”Recreating a virtual and then physical reconstruction of Leonardo’s face, they can compare it with the smiling face in the painting, experts involved in the project told The Associated Press.

“We don’t know what we’ll find if the tomb is opened, we could even just find grains and dust,”says Giorgio Gruppioni, an anthropologist who is participating in the project. “But if the remains are well kept, they are a biological archive that registers events in a person’s life and sometimes in their death.” The leader of the group, Silvano Vinceti, told The AP that he plans to press his case with

the French officials in charge of the purported burial site at Amboise Castle early next week. But the Italian enthusiasm may be premature. In France, exhumation requires a long legal procedure, and precedent suggests it’s likely to take even longer when it involves a person of great note such as da Vinci. — The Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. — John Mayer fans have been huddling outside the South Carolina venue where the rocker has been rehearsing for his upcoming tour, hoping to get a glimpse of him. For some lucky fans, that wait has paid off. For two hours Tuesday night, Mayer put on a free show for John Mayer University of South Carolina students, giving back to the loyal fans who had camped out in downtown Columbia during his practice sessions. “USC students: come watch us run the show tonight. Free,”Mayer said in a Twitter message sent at 6 p.m. Tuesday, inviting students to pick up their free tickets at the Russell House University Union on campus and show up for a concert two hours later. Organizers originally said only 200 tickets would be issued, but about 500 were gathered for Tuesday’s performance. Mayer has been in Columbia this week rehearsing for his two-year worldwide tour, which kicks off Thursday in Sunrise, Fla. He returns to South Carolina Feb. 8 for a show in North Charleston, S.C., but doesn’t have any concerts scheduled for Columbia. Given the warm reception he got Tuesday, Mayer said he might have to reconsider that. “We will hopefully see you at one of the area concerts, or we’ll have to do a show back here,” Mayer said. “We’ll see you soon.” Tuesday’s performance had all the elements of a standard arena concert: screaming fans, cameras feeding live images to a jumbo screen and even an encore. Trying out music from his latest album,“Battle Studies,”Mayer told the crowd he planned to run through the touring concert playlist and make tweaks as necessary, even asking the crowd for advice on some show elements, like a semitransparent screen surrounding the stage. “Thank you for helping us out,”he said.“This is the way you should rehearse a show.” No visual or audio recordings were allowed at Tuesday’s show, a request Mayer thanked his fans for respecting. — The Associated Press

GPSC backs higher library fee for students By Alex Newman ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The Graduate and Professional Student Council voted Wednesday to endorse the increase of the annual library fee from $30 to $150. The library has been pushing for a fee increase for years, but the GPSC has continuously been against it, until now. According to Helena Morrison, a GPSC representative for the College of Nursing and member on the Graduate Student Advisory Council, the GSAC has already drafted a letter in support of the library fee increase. She said the GSAC hoped the GPSC would do the same. “I think that the library and having

ENDOWMENT continued from page 1

a good library system is something that’s really essential for the equality of our academic work, especially as graduate students,” said GPSC representative for the College of Law Priyanka Sundareshan. The library currently gets money from the state and does not receive money from tuition, Morrison said. The fee increase would benefit graduate students as much as undergraduates. “The undergraduates and graduates use different services, but they use it the same percentage wise,” Morrison said. By endorsing an increased library fee, GPSC is not necessarily agreeing to the full $120 fee increase. The GPSC Policy Committee is debating whether to support the fee increase 100 percent, or

support it by 57 percent, which would be an increase of $70. GPSC Assembly Chair James Johnson said the library is a, “vital service that we need for our research so that someday we can graduate.” David Talenfeld, the GPSC president, believes the library’s services are critical to students and doesn’t think the GPSC should stick to a policy of students not paying for any improvements. “I don’t think we should tell people, such as the library, ‘Sorry, do less with less,’”Talenfeld said. Talenfeld also said child-care contractors will be coming to campus to work on developing services to graduate students who have families. In addition, a six-week paid parental leave policy may also go into effect

this year or next. GPSC representative for the College of Humanities, Lucy Blaney-Laible, asked if the GPSC supported the proposal to allow faculty members to carry weapons on campus. The GPSC voted against endorsing the proposal. They also discussed elections at the meeting. Associated Students of the University of Arizona President Chris Nagata spoke at the meeting to propose that ASUA and GPSC pool their resources and have their student elections at the same time. “Resources are scarce, and we’d be benefitting both organizations by coming together,” Nagata said. He proposed that both organizations should have equal publicity.

Blaney-Laible voiced that the two entitites should remain separate and have different ballots since their election regulations are different. Christina Lieberman , associate director for the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership, said that ASUA and GPSC elections have had a decreasing voter turnout and that by working together for these elections, and better educating students, they could have more successful elections. “This would be a time and cost saving measure,”Talenfeld said. He said the time frame to change the elections is narrow, about a month for this year, but that he would be fine with a commitment to make sure it’s implemented next year.

Donation allows unrestricted creativity, better diagnoses

She said the endowment allows her team of researchers to try experiments and ideas that are not currently funded. With endowed money, researchers don’t have the same limitations they do with grants. “With grant money it’s very difficult to get money to do projects or initiate projects, because they want to see a lot of preliminary data. Basically the common thought on a grant is you almost have to have completed the grant to get the

grant,”Stopeck said. Stopeck said she’s excited about the opportunity to be more creative in her research and take more chances. She said this might actually lead to significant discoveries in breast cancer research, and she plans on using the money to hire a part-time technician who’s extremely knowledgeable in flow psychometry to help the team move forward with research on circulating tumor cells in the blood. They want to

learn more about their origin and how drugs affect them. Stopeck also wants to invest in a novel imaging technique, called functional imaging, which would also show how cells respond to therapy. She said the two most important elements in advancing research, allowing the university to keep great researchers and allowing them to be creative, is accomplished by the endowment. Gmitro’s research also reaps the benefits.

He has been working with both MRI and optical imaging technology. He has also been working on a confocal microendoscope, which is an instrument that essentially allows a microscope to see tissue inside the body, rather than taking tissue out of the body. With a conventional biopsy, only a few pieces of tissue are extracted and examined. Tissue samples from the diseased area may not be extracted, which would cause an error in diagnosis. The confocal

microendoscope allows for better visualization and better diagnosis. “We’ve been applying (the confocal microendoscope) in the context of a number of disease processes. By modifying the instrument to make it even smaller, it has the potential to work in terms of breast imaging as well,”Gmitro said. He added that it is an honor to be named to the breast cancer chair and that the monies coming from the endowment will certainly help improve his research.

Our love-hate relationship with D2L

A

s the new semester comes into full swing, the amount of schoolwork at the UA is quickly piling up. Numerous assignments include worksheets, lab reports, group projects, reading tests, a few exams — and everyone’s favorite D2L quizzes. We love to complain about the annoying deadlines and the slow streaming videos, but instead of whining about the site, UA students should appreciate D2L for what it is: a huge asset to students, faculty, the earth and our budgets. Alright, so the name“Desire 2 Learn”is pretty tacky — and taking tests online isn’t exactly fun. Similarly, some users may complain of downtime or lag, but there’s more to D2L than meets the eye. Love it or hate it, D2L is actually helping many UA students save money. And, although Miranda Butler doing classwork online Columnist can be tedious, D2L’s many features are more beneficial than we realize. As UA’s D2L help site, help.d2l.arizona.edu, describes D2L as an online course management system for university students and instructors. Its purpose is to“allow ‘anytime, anywhere’access to syllabi, readings, multimedia files, electronic dropboxes, online quizzes, email, grading, student progress reports, project files, etc.” Of course, nothing is perfect. D2L’s site has resources — such as tip sheets and 24/7 tech support — for the occasional instances in which links don’t work right or the server lags because it’s overloaded. But these slight inconveniences aren’t serious enough to override the benefits. Sharon Osofsky, a history major, explains,“My honors class has no books. They just put everything online.” Osofsky isn’t the only one who got a lucky break. Katie Stavoe, a psychology freshman, agrees that several of her classes post articles as PDFs instead of requiring students to buy the books. Across campus, other students are getting this same benefit, which can potentially avert hundreds of dollars worth of expensive textbook costs. Students and teachers alike should realize the practicality of posting resources on the system. In 2007, UA’s Learning Technology blog did a report about D2L’s usefulness. In the article, Dr. Jennifer Roth-Gordon said,“It’s nice to be able to offer students the ability to access readings whenever and wherever they want … [It] saves time and money.” That’s just another benefit of having class content and resources online instead of in a conventional book. Students can view their work, notes and texts at any place, at any time. It’s easy to access and easy to navigate — so much so that many students praise D2L because of its simple organization. Stavoe, in particular, mentioned that D2L is one place where it’s easy to find everything. “I think it’s great,”Osofsky agreed. She also added that D2L’s numerous features have been convenient to her in other ways.“I don’t have to take notes,”Osofsky says, referencing the way many teachers post their lecture slides on the Web site. Some professors even post podcasts for their classes and use D2L to e-mail students, reminding them of upcoming assignments and events. Being able to utilize so many features in one accessible place is truly helpful to everyone involved. Altogether, D2L is a multifaceted system which can help students in their learning. Although the site isn’t perfect, it offers a variety of resources to students and teachers alike. It’s an added benefit that the site can save us hundreds of dollars’worth in textbook fees — and thus, could be the future alternative to spending money on costly books. —Miranda Butler is a creative writing sophomore. She can be reached at letters@wildcat.arizona.edu.

MAILBAG Dear Wildcats, Hello, my name is Christopher Nagata, and I am the student body president here at the UA. I am contacting the student body today asking for your assistance with a local and potentially statewide visibility campaign that I am working on with my fellow ASUA colleagues. With the rise in the cost of attendance and the decline of state funding for our universities, students are faced with significant challenges accessing a quality yet affordable higher education. The bright news is, despite these obstacles, there are many students who find a way to succeed. However, the unfortunate reality is that if the state and university do not protect these educational opportunities, students will be priced out of an education, being deprived of the chance to realize their full potential. It is my sincere hope, using this visibility campaign as a vehicle, to put a face on this issue so that our legislators, university officials and citizens of Arizona can no longer ignore this problem. Please help me in my efforts to identify fellow students (or yourself) with remarkable and heart-felt stories relating to their fight for achieving a higher education. It is my goal

to share the experiences of those students who have exhibited enormous potential, while navigating themselves toward excellence in spite of financial barriers. I would hate to see the doors of opportunity close for our hardest working scholars as a result of financial difficulties or because we have allowed our decision-makers to irresponsibly neglect the value of higher education. Simply put, it would be a shame if we did not stand up and act in this time of great need and opportunity. As you identify students with compelling stories, please forward me their contact information so I may meet with them in order to forward the movement of this campaign. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration and assistance in advance. I sincerely hope we all take advantage of this moment to protect the value of our universities, educational opportunities and, most importantly, our students. Respectfully, Christopher Nagata ASUA President asuapres@email.arizona.edu

policebeat By Bridgette Doran Arizona Daily Wildcat

Lax ladies allow search, get criminal MIP

A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to the Coronado Residence Hall on Sunday at 11:07 p.m. after someone reported smelling marijuana on the second floor. The officer met with the Resident Assistant on duty and they patrolled the hallway. The smell was detected as coming from around one door frame on the second floor. The officer could hear several girls inside the room giggling, and when he knocked on the door, the resident gave the officer permission to come inside. When he entered the room he saw four girls and smelled a strong odor of marijuana. The four women were questioned separately. Three women denied knowing about any marijuana and claimed they did not know why the room smelled. The other woman said she smoked outside earlier that night, but would not say where or with whom. Another officer was granted permission to search the room and found a 750 milliliter bottle of Three Olives Cherry Vodka under the resident’s desk. He also noticed a full 1.75 liter bottle of Smirnoff Vodka under her roommate’s desk. The resident was cited and released on a criminal charge of minor in possession and a Code of Conduct report was referred to the Dean of Students.

Sloppy drunk?

A UAPD officer was called to assist paramedics at a residential home on Sunday at 2:27 a.m. The officer spoke with a woman identified by a California driver’s license. As the officer asked the woman questions, he could see that her eyes were bloodshot and she had slurred speech and a strong odor of alcohol. After she was cleared by the Tucson Fire Department paramedics, the woman told the officer that earlier she had six shots of hard liquor at a party at the Delta Chi fraternity house at 1701 E. First St. She also stated that alcohol readily available at the party. The woman was arrested and charged for minor in possession. She was cited and her rights were explained to her. The woman was released into the care of a friend.

New Yorker sends mafia mail

A UAPD officer responded to the Emil W. Haury Anthropology building at on Monday at 11:27 a.m. regarding a piece of mail. A UA employee told the officer that for the past five years the Anthropology building had been receiving “unusual” mail from an unknown person in New York. The woman told officers that on the outside of the envelopes are phrases such as “Do white people have religion?” and “Mafia Land.”  The letters are articles cut from New York area newspapers and none have ever been of a threatening nature. The woman said the building has received two or three letters a year, and they all have been “weird.” There are no suspects, and the letters do not have forwarding addresses on them. All letters have been sent from New York. The incident has been cited and the letters were placed into property as evidence.

Someone has a case of the Mondays

A UAPD officer responded to the Electrical and Computer Engineering building on Monday at 3:41 p.m., in response to a call about a man disturbing the peace. The victim, a UA employee that works in the building, said a man knocked on her office door and asked to speak to her about the status of an application. The woman stated she was unable to determine the name of the student he was asking about because of the man’s accent. She said the man then started screaming, “You haven’t responded to any of my e-mails; this process is sexist.” The woman then told the man he was not allowed to speak to her that way and to leave the office. She also stated the man’s wife, who was also in the office, needed to hold him back as he screamed at the woman. While the man continued to yell, the woman called UAPD because she did not know if the situation was going to become physical. The woman said she was scared of the man, even though there were many other people who had entered the office to keep the man separated from her. The officer then spoke with the man, who stated he was only at the office to check on the status of his nephew’s graduate school application, and at no time was he yelling or screaming at the woman. He also said the woman told him he was “uncivilized” and to “get out of my office,” and she then called the police. The man claimed he did not know why the police were being called and that it was unnecessary.  The woman said she did not want to be involved in judicial proceedings and just wanted the situation to be documented. The officer stayed on scene as the wife of the man asked the woman questions about the application status for their nephew.

Hand sanitizer dispenser thieves caught on tape

A UAPD officer responded to the Park Student Union on Monday at 6:10 p.m. after an employee reported theft from the property. The employee stated he witnessed the theft of an automatic hands-free hand sanitizer dispenser by three unknown men. The men had been joking with the employee about wanting to steal the dispenser just before one of the men took it off the wall and left the building. The dispenser was on the wall near the main entrance, across from the information desk. No other witnesses are known and video surveillance will be examined by the discretion of the detectives working the case.

Research shows AZ drying up By Jazmine Woodberry Arizona Daily Wildcat There’s nothing new about the Sonoran Desert being hot and dry, but new research featured in the science journal “Nature Geoscience” suggests the future of southern Arizona might be even drier. Julia Cole, a UA geosciences professor and co-author of the article, found that the storm track, which usually brings Tucson its water, has been moving north over the last 30 years. The movement, which usually occurs over hundreds of thousands of years, has taken only decades. “And that’s bad news for Tucson,” said Joellen Russell, a UA geosciences assistant professor. Global warming and changes to the ozone layer over the Earth’s poles have both been hypothesized as possible causes. Modern droughts are similar to those seen in ancient paleorecords in cave deposits.

because it was introduced into the Senate yesterday,”Quillin said. Kevin Pounds, an optical science junior, argued if the goal is to keep students away from guns, logic would suggest the university should also prohibit security officers and UA police from carrying guns. But he added that he does not support taking guns away from these people. Charles Crawford III, a computer science and business sophomore said although he wishes we didn’t have guns, if guns weren’t allowed on campus, it would be a one-sided fight for anyone who decided to bring a gun onto campus. “Too many people are being guided by fear and logic,”he added. Joe Fitzpatrick, a pre-business junior who attended the meeting to oppose the resolution, said his voice was not considered in the drafting of the resolution. “I don’t really feel ASUA would be speaking on my behalf if they passed this,” Fitzpatrick said. Fitzpatrick has a gun permit and keeps his firearm in his car, but would like to be able to carry it on him in case he needs it to protect himself or someone else. Rob Rosinski, a civil engineering sophomore and president of the unofficial student organization Students for the Second Amendment, also has a gun permit and stores his weapon in his vehicle. He says it makes him feel safer when he is“in transit.”He doesn’t feel the law should be different for people on campus. “Why should my rights outside this campus be any different (than) on this campus?”Rosinski asked. Rosinski said he will not be satisfied if the state allows teachers to carry weapons but believes it’s a step in the right direction. “I don’t believe just giving (the right to have weapons) to teachers is enough, because some teachers won’t carry,” he said. ASUA members are not yet sure when they will hold the public forum, but they hope to have it soon.

Huskies ready for payback

Arizona at Washington

Decaffeinating Seattle’s Best Wildcats aim to continue win streak by stifling energetic Huskies in Seattle By Kevin Zimmerman ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT To avoid coming out flat, the Arizona men’s basketball team may need to grab a cup of joe before its tip-off against a home-loving Husky squad. Getting that energy rush will be easy in Seattle, where the Wildcats (12-9, 6-3 Pacific 10 Conference) take on the University of Washington (14-7, 4-5) tonight at 8:30 in the Hec Edmundson Pavilion. “They have such an attacking style that I think it feeds their home crowd, and I think their home crowd can really feed that way of playing,” said UA head coach Sean Miller. “We know it’s going to be a challenge.” Miller’s crew will face a rowdy UW crowd looking to put out the Wildcats’ current four-game winning streak, but he hasn’t budged from his year-long stance: Take each practice and each day one at a time. Through a rough nonconference schedule that took Arizona on the road for five of its first 10 games, the Wildcats have gradually improved. “I think our team has gone through enough ups and downs and recognized how hard it is to win,” Miller said. “I think out of the 20 games we’ve played roughly 15 have come down to the final moments. It’s that experience that should keep you grounded or humbled.” Praise went to senior point guard Nic Wise, who not only led the Wildcats to several last-minute wins but has been what Miller called the “quiet leader” to the younger Wildcats. Averaging 16 points and 3.8 assists, it’s more than statistics that show Wise’s value. Miller said his players have

By Bryan Roy ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The Wildcats might taste a dose of their own medicine tonight. Having used defensive stops to trigger home crowd energy and dictate tempo, Arizona travels to the alwayshostile Hec Edmundson Pavilion in Seattle to take on a team gunning for those same tactics. The Huskies’ similar man-to-man defense was destructed in Tucson just two weekends ago, allowing 87 points in a loss that also marked the last time the University of Washington was ranked. A season-high six Wildcats scored in double figures last meeting, led by Jamelle Horne’s game-high 22 points. Tonight will yield a whole different atmosphere — and potentially different results — favoring the Huskies this time. “They feed off their crowd,” said UA coach Sean Miller.“They really create turnovers and pressure the other team with their man-to-man defense. That generally leads them into more transition points. “I think the thing that both Washington and Washington State have that makes it difficult to beat both teams, especially on their home courts, is they both can be very explosive on offense,” he added.“Our defense will be challenged at a very high level.” Relying on the home atmosphere, as Miller credited in last weekend’s sweep against the Bay Area schools, can make a young team look veteran

nior’s preparation has helped Arizona’s young team grow up fast.

Wise to play in post-college tournament Arizona senior Nic Wise has accepted an invitation to play in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, an event for 64 college seniors to showcase themselves to NBA scouts. The event will be held April 7-10 in Portsmouth, Va., and will give seniors a chance to play a guaranteed three games in front of NBA scouts prior to the NBA pre-draft camp. It is the 58th

year of the tournament. The 5-foot-10, 177-pound guard out of Kingwood High School in Houston, Texas, is averaging 16 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.8 assists through 21 games this year. He is the eighth-best Pacific 10 Conference player in scoring, seventh in assists and third in steals.

“Someone like Nic Wise will really be ready for practice, to lead in practice … that’s something that’s important,” Miller said.“That’s something that as a group we have all got better at. It’s started to lead into games.” Now hitting the second half of the Pac-10’s round-robin schedule, the improving Wildcats find themselves facing a Washington team they beat 87-70 in Tucson earlier this year.

Lack of Stoops welcomes 2010 recruits practice taking toll on Icecats By Tim Kosch ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

W

ithout the Tucson Convention Center, hockey wouldn’t exist in Tucson. With no other ice rink in town, the 6,000-seat, multipurpose arena is the home of the UA Icecats and has been for decades. But with the Tucson city budget cuts and a constant search for any type of revenue, practice time is at a premium. Even games are being cut, and it’s creating helpless frustration among the players. “That’s one of those things that’s out of my hands,”said freshman forward and leading goal-scorer Brian Slugocki. “It’s so frustrating, but we just have to deal with it.” The Icecats have already had three games cancelled this season due to “scheduling conflicts”at the fault of the TCC. But with the arena underwater financially, that conflict sounds more like “what will make us more money, the Icecats or ‘Disney on Ice’?” University of Nevada, Las Vegas was scheduled to come to town for a twogame series. That series was cut down to one game. The UNLV game was replaced with a Mickey Mouse show that didn’t require ice. SCHMITZ, page 8

W-tennis set to finish five-game homestand

HOOPS

Growth showing day by day

continued from page 7

Ranked San Diego and sister match highlights weekend By Nathan Comerford ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT It’s always nice to be home. The women’s tennis team knows this and isn’t taking it for granted. The team spent the first five games of its season at LaNelle Robson Tennis Center on campus and has already knocked out three straight wins. With two more potential victories in the upcoming days, playing at UA shows what the home court can do for the team. “Playing at home is certainly a nice advantage, especially in the first few matches, as we tend to start out

a bit rusty,” said head coach Vicky Maes. “You try to keep the environment as comfortable as possible so that the team can be successful and gain confidence.” The 3-0 Wildcats will face off against New Mexico State (1-2) on Thursday and San Diego (2-1), who is ranked by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association at No. 60 in the country, on Saturday. Both matches will prove to be challenging, although for different reasons. Maes is wary of New Mexico State’s doubles teams, but they need to also keep an eye on senior Sophia Marks, who ITA has ranked at No.

110 in the country for singles. If the name sounds familiar, there’s a reason. Sophia is the older sister of UA’s Natasha Marks, a sophomore, ranked in her own right at No. 46 by the ITA. “The key will be to play solid doubles first, starting out aggressive and closing out opportunities,” Maes said. “In singles, everyone is playing better and better every match, so we just have to stay the course and battle hard.” On Saturday at the Robson Tennis Center, San Diego will be the first TENNIS, page 12

check, as neither scored a point in the first half. But it won’t be any easier with the Huskies looking for revenge at home. “We don’t walk in the gym and overwhelm anybody,” Miller said. “I think this weekend is going to be another reminder for our team how hard it is to win on the road, playing against really hungry and talented team in Washington.” The Huskies will implement a similar style to Arizona’s defensefirst, fast-break-buckets-second mentality. UW head coach Lorenzo Romar said his team has dug itself a hole, sometimes failing to come out with the energy needed to create turnovers and get into transition.

Whether Arizona can quiet the Huskies’ home crowd and whether Washington can come out on an energetic high, as it has at home, will be factors for both teams. But Miller still seeks improvement, win or lose. “I think just staying true to what’s made us become a better team remains the name of the game for this team,” he said. “That is … that we’re still hungry, that we know on any given night every team in our conference can beat us. “If we stay that course,”Miller said, “that’s the best chance for us to have the most wins. Whatever that total is, I know this: We can all rest easy that we’ve improved a lot and we’ve come a long way since November.”

No ice time leaves bleak season ending

continued from page 7

Michigan State was supposed to make the trip to Arizona in mid-February, but the Spartans will no longer be coming to town. The Michigan State time slot has been filled by the theatrical performance,“Walking with Dinosaurs.” For the Icecat seniors, three of their final home games in Arizona club hockey uniforms were removed. As for the games they can play, it is nearly impossible to compete when you can’t practice. The Icecats’ last practice was Jan. 20, and because of the annual Gem and Mineral Show — a huge moneymaker for the city — they will have to play their remaining six games without setting foot on the ice beforehand. With the final series of the season coming against ASU on Feb. 26 and 27, the Icecats will go the final month and seven days without any ice time. Hockey is a sport in which a player’s skills need to be sharp. The cardio can be there, but if

the stick handling is shaky and the timing is off, the end result won’t be pretty. Not to mention the Icecats have 15 freshmen still not fully adjusted to the college game or suiting up on a regular basis. How can you expect to win games with an almost entirely new team and no practice? “We have a lot of young guys that need consistent ice time to be productive and to get a decent unit going,”said associate coach Dave Dougall.“It makes it tough for the guys. It’s pretty hard to get your timing.” It is difficult to complain because the TCC brings a professional-sized arena to a town that would otherwise have no hockey. Players get their own trading cards and sign autographs after games, but all of that isn’t nearly as meaningful if you aren’t winning or even practicing. There used to be another rink in town where the team would go practice in times like this. That has been gone for years and, with the city’s current financial state, it is highly unlikely another

rink will be built anytime soon. “With the budgets the way they are, I can’t see somebody taking a risk,”Dougall said of the city building a new rink.“They didn’t do it before, why are they going to do it now?” With six games remaining, the Icecats are in danger of finishing the season under .500. The losing season would be only the second in the program’s 30-year history. If they win five of their last six games, they will finish 15-15.

Sure, the TCC has a terrific atmosphere that has carried Icecat hockey for decades, but ice availability is steadily decreasing year in and year out. And all of the perks of the TCC are starting to be outweighed by the negatives. — Mike Schmitz is a pre-business sophomore. Reach him at sports@wildcat.arizona.edu.

Let the Arizona Daily Wildcat

help you find your INNER CHILD

A home trip to heal their wounds By Dan Kohler Arizona Daily Wildcat After a disappointing road trip to Northern California, the Arizona women’s basketball team returns home this weekend for a short two-game stint against the Washington schools. To regain positioning in the conference table, the Wildcats (9-10, 3-6 Pacific-10 Conference) are looking to rebound against a Washington State (5-15, 0-9) team that is coming off an overtime heartbreak loss to archrival Washington. Tonight’s contest is matching up to be a more straightforward challenge for Arizona, as the Washington State Cougars — a team expected to finish sixth in the Pac-10 preseason polls — are now sitting with zero conference victories and the lowly ten-spot in the conference standings. Regardless of their conference standing, Arizona head coach Niya Butts said the No. 1 priority in practice was respecting the Cougars. “We are not looking at their record, because they are more than capable of beating anyone in the conference,” Butts said. “They’re going to be coming in here and looking for the win,

so we have to be hungry and ready to play.” The 10-game Cougar losing streak, along with two consecutive Arizona victories against WSU — including a 67-60 victory in Pullman, Wash., on Jan. 7 — will provide some momentum for Arizona in their quest to keep the Cougars winless. “We know that they’ve become a better team since we played them the first time, but so have we,” said Arizona guard Ashley Frazier. “I think it will be a fast-paced game. We need to keep our energy up.” Despite the fact that the Cougars have yet to secure a conference victory, they have been able to hold second-half leads in seven conference games this season and are currently on a two-game winning streak in McKale Center. The Cougars are led by freshman guard KiKi Moore and sophomore guard April Cook, who come into Thursday’s contest with a combined 27 points per game average, including 17 double-digit scoring games each. Containing the leaders of the Washington State offense will need to be a top priority for the Wildcats in trying to secure the win. For the Wildcats to snap their losing streak, they need to return to a more defensive style

of play. Throughout the games at California and Stanford, the Wildcats lost by a combined 41 points to California and No. 2 Stanford and were out-rebounded 55-22 in the Stanford game alone. In practice this week, Butts said the focus on rebounds would be an eternal one and coming into this weekend’s games the emphasis was on offensive boards. “We always work on rebounding, it’s a running theme. But the key is that at some point we have got to turn the corner and get a little bit better,” she said. The Cougar defense is coming into the game ranked first in the Pac-10 and 22nd nationally in turnover margin. This could be the Achilles heel for Arizona, a team that gave up a combined 23 turnovers against California and Stanford over the weekend. The Wildcats’ season is halfway over and Butts wants to prove that her team is not going to give up easily. With a close Pac10 season, it is not out of reach to say that Arizona could make a run and finish at the top of the conference. “At this point in the season,” Butts said, “we can all go in on any given night and compete and come out with a win.”

— especially when forcing turnovers or quick shots. The Wildcats held California to just 37.7 percent from the floor. The young Wildcats, with 13 underclassmen on the roster, reversed roles against a veteran California team in McKale, but maintaining that energy on the road is a different story that Arizona is slowly learning. As of February, road crowds are nothing new. This weekend marks Arizona’s 11th and 12th away games of the season — compared to 11 home games so far. “It definitely benefits us playing at home,” said Washington coach Lorenzo Romar.“What we have to do is create that energy in ourselves on the road. Our crowd is great, our student section is great. We have a lot of confidence when we’re playing here.

“The way we play basketball, a lot of it is due to high level intensity,” he added.“When we don’t bring that intensity we’re not a very good team.” Romar admitted the Huskies dug themselves a hole in the first half of the Pacific 10 Confrence schedule. Stumbling out of the gates, UW fell from a top-10 ranked team to the bottom tier of the sixth-best conference in college basketball. The Huskies lost five of seven conference games heading into last weekend. “In each game, the opponent is not as big of a concern as us coming out and playing the way we’re suppose to play,” Romar said. “We can’t get caught up … too much in other things. “Arizona soundly beat us last time. They’re playing arguably the best

basketball in the Pac-10. Unless we come out and play the way we’re capable, it doesn’t matter who we play,” he said. Washington came out strong in the second half against Washington State on Saturday for a statement 92-64 win against their in-state rivals. Said UW point guard Isaiah Thomas after the game on his Twitter:“Great Win 4 our team..we takin this thing Day by day and Game by Game.. WE ALL WE GOT! Husky Nation here we come.” Day by day — that’s all Washington can do at this point. Now into the second half of Pac-10 play, can it go any more unpredictably than the first half? “I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that I have no idea,” Romar said.“I couldn’t have predicted what’s happened to this point.”

ranked team the Wildcats have seen all season, and it will provide the first test of the year for Maes and her team to see if they have what it takes to be ranked by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. San Diego has already been tested this season, however. In the ITA Kick-Off Tournament last weekend they upset No. 28 Louisiana State University 4-1 but lost 4-0 to No. 9 USC.

“USD just came of a great win last weekend so we expect them to come out confident,� Maes continued. “We lost to USD last year so we are certainly looking to avenge that match.� Last year, the Wildcats lost a 5-2 decision against San Diego. Maes also said knocking off a ranked team would give her team a lot of added confidence. A key to building confidence will be taking matches one at a time,

which will, in the end, help the team reach its goals. The main goal — to become a ranked team — will be put to the test in this weekend’s home stand against San Diego. Regardless of the result, though, the women have numerous opportunities to make their mark in the rest of the season. Whether they’re at home or on the road, the Wildcats will have to be ready.
