GRE scores on resumes ignite debate SHELBY THOMAS Arizona Daily Wildcat

After students take the Graduate Record Examination, there comes the question of whether or not to put the score on a resume. Last April, ETS’s market researchers surveyed 317 human resources directors at companies of varying sizes. About 25 percent reported requiring, recommending or accepting GRE scores when evaluating candidates. Nearly 40 percent of businesses with 10,000 or more employees considered their applicants’ GRE scores, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education. GRE scores are intended to be used for entry into graduate schools and programs.

Much like other standardized tests, such as the SAT and ACT, the GRE consists of various sections (verbal, qualitative, analytical writing and experimental) that are combined to generate a cumulative score. This number sends a message about a student’s overall skill set, but some are challenging whether or not this test is a fair representation of an applicant’s ability to perform in a given career. “The career counselors here are unsupportive of [students’ including GRE scores on a resume]. It just doesn’t make sense,” wrote Susan L. Miller-Pinhey, the marketing and special events manager of UA Career Services, in an email. “An employer has the ability to evaluate a lot of other

entries on a student’s resume (i.e. previous work experience, internships, skills, etc.) without having to look at the scores of tests that were not designed to indicate work ability or experience.” Ian Goldstein majored in mathematics and political science at Macalester College in Minnesota before earning his masters in statistics at the UA . He included his GRE scores when applying to graduate schools, but never for a job position. In fact, he said he has never heard of anyone using GRE scores on a job application. For his career in mathematics, he said he did not see how this particular test could have benefitted him or his chances of employment. “The thing about the GRE is if you were

applying for a specialist position, it hardly has any content knowledge,” Goldstein said. “And for me, the math on the GRE is stuff I was done with my freshman year of college, and so it doesn’t really help with a job where they’d want to see upper-level coursework. It is not a very good barometer for the types of jobs I am looking at.” Goldstein does not include test scores on his resume, but instead emphasizes his other accomplishments. The goal is to create a well-rounded representation of one’s skill and ability, he said. “I don’t have a very high opinion of standardized tests because I don’t actually

KYLE WASSON/ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

STUDENTS CAN HELP REDUCE stress at Wind Down Wednesdays, which are held the first Wednesday of each month from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Nugent building. The idea for the de-stressing activities came about in fall 2012.

In groups of 15, attendees are escorted through a maze of partitions, each containing a topic of oppression in today’s society. One woman gives her account of how she overcame ridicule from those who considered her overweight and of her struggle with bulimia. After her speech, the group follows the guide onward through the Tunnel of Oppression. The nationally acclaimed Tunnel of Oppression is a two-day event beginning Feb. 11 that aims to reflect the present-day struggles of oppressed groups. Event participants present information and real-life accounts in emotionally draining exposition and act out scenes showing oppression. The purpose of the event is for attendees to personally experience the different forms of oppression, according to Marina Shalabi, diversity director for the Associated Students of the University of Arizona. “I really hope this experience gives students a sense of social justice,” Shalabi said. “We want to make everyone aware of the overall message: don’t watch these acts of oppression take place; do something.” The event will consist of tours conducted every 15 minutes starting at 6 p.m. in the ballroom of the Student Union Memorial Center. The volunteer tour guides will lead groups through a “tunnel” where people in separate rooms provide testimonials and actors perform scenarios that demonstrate oppression. “I think this is a really educational and eye-opening experience,” said Gina Dance,

Tree-ring research lab awaits final touches on permanent building WHITNEY BURGOYNE Arizona Daily Wildcat

After 75 years in temporary space, the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research is awaiting the final touches on its new location. The lab inhabited the western part of Arizona Stadium since Andrew Douglass founded the program in 1937. The delay in attaining a more permanent station ended, thanks to a donor who gave $8 million to fund the new building’s construction five years ago. The new center, located near Sixth Street and the Mathematics building, better accommodates the researchers’ studies of dendrochronology, or tree-ring dating. The new building provides more space and gives

researchers efficient access to data and tree samples, which creates a better working environment, according to Rex Adams, a retired research specialist. Furthermore, the laboratory provides a consolidated space for lab work so people don’t have to work in separate rooms, which makes it easier for everyone to work together, according to Christopher Baisan, a research specialist. “Almost everybody has some kind of window view,” Adams said. “It’s just the fact we have natural light coming in from all four sides that uplifts the spirit.” Dendrochronology, according to Adams, is the study of trees’ time. The tree-ring research building is the center where researchers study

samples of wood remnants from all over the world to create chronological sequences, shedding light on environmental matters and specifically targeting fluctuations in climate. The researchers look at the condition and age of trees to determine climate circumstances at a precise time. The research building contains around 2 million samples and cross sections of more than 100 species of trees including pine, oak, sequoia, fir and spruce. The most intriguing piece of the collection is a pith of wood brought to the UA from Wheeler Peak in eastern Nevada. Don Currey, a graduate student from the University of North Carolina, was studying glaciers in Nevada in the 1960s

SexTalk Week will promote sexual health for students sarah-jayne simon Arizona Daily Wildcat

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and Campus Health Service is prepared with its annual SexTalk week. SexTalk week will consist of 10 main events, starting on Feb. 11 and ending on Feb. 15. The 10 different events all pertain to the main goal of SexTalk week, according to health educator and coordinator Carrie Hardesty. SexTalk week will start on Monday with “Sex at the Rec” from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Student Recreation Center, where students can pick up free gift bags. “We hope students will gain information and knowledge about safer sex, risk reduction, birth control options, condoms and the importance of getting tested and getting consent from their partner(s),” Hardesty said in an email. SexTalk week has been held on campus for the past 25 years, according to Lee Ann Hamilton, assistant director of Health Promotion and Preventive Services at Campus Health. In 1987, the weeklong event was known as National Condom Week. However, the name was changed because the event’s goal was to teach about sexual health in general, not just condoms, Hamilton said. Seventy-four percent of UA students reported that they’d had either one or no sexual partners during the past school year and 55 percent of first year students have not had sexual intercourse in the past year, Hamilton said in a press

release. Despite these percentages, Hamilton stressed the importance of educating students about sexual health. “Not every student is having sexual intercourse but everyone is a sexual being,” Hamilton said. “They may not be in a relationship now, but they may be doing sexual activities that can lead up to sexual intercourse. “For those choosing to not have sex, there is definitely information available to them about healthy relationships,” she continued. “The real part of it is, you can have better relationships and better sexual relationships the more you know about your body and the facts around sexual health.” The Sexual Health Resource Fair will be held Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the UA Mall. Students will be able to learn about sexual health, relationships, birth control, pregnancy options, sexual assault, abstinence and STDs from more than 15 campus and community groups, Hardesty said. Participants in the event include Catholic Social Services, the Office of LGBTQ Affairs, the Pima County Health Department, Planned Parenthood and Pima Prevention Partnership. “SexTalk Week really encourages students to make healthy choices and gives them responsibility if they choose to have it,” Hardesty said. “We hope that they take away some knowledge, whether it’s about healthy relationships, how to be safer in the sexual encounters they are in and how to choose risk reduction methods.”

when he decided that determining the age of the trees growing after the glacier had passed would help him estimate the time at which the glacier existed. The first tree he came to was an old bristlecone pine, which the forest rangers helped him cut down so he could count the rings of the cross section to figure out its age. After examining the cross section, Currey learned the tree was almost 5,000 years old — the oldest known tree in existance. However, his discovery became extremely controversial because he had cut down and killed the oldest living tree ever encountered. Currey’s bristlecone pine sample was given to the UA by a professor at the University of Texas. It is still in storage but will be uncovered in the near future to be exhibited among all the other tree samples and cross sections for the public’s entertainment and education, Baisan said. Although Currey cut down a tree to obtain this sample, the tree-ring laboratory does not cut down living trees for their research, according to Matt Salzer, a UA research associate. Old wood remnants or samples are taken using an increment bore that only causes a small, healable wound in the tree. The sap of the tree contributes to the healing process and the tree is not fatally damaged. The formal dedications of the laboratory will take place on March 1 and the public dedication will occur the following day. “It will be the first time we have a real building,” Baisan said. “Douglass was promised one when he first founded the program.”

Eller partners with city on general plan rachel McCluskey Arizona Daily Wildcat

Eller Executive Education is working with the city of Tucson to implement a new general plan, which will be voted on in November. The state of Arizona mandates a 10-year plan for Tucson; the last general plan was approved in 2001. The 2013 General Plan focuses on the social, economic and physical environment of the city. Included in these three categories are 20 goals, such as the desire to be a prosperous city. Those goals have different sections like housing and transportation, which eventually result in policies. Eller Executive Education is helping to provide strategic priorities for the plan such as economic developments, a strong downtown, increasing the quality of life or decreasing poverty, according to Nicole Ewing Gavin, the planning and policy program director for the City Manager’s Office. Eller’s efforts are more toward the short-term goals of the plan, like the budget, Ewing Gavin added. Mayor Jonathan Rothschild has been working to develop a stronger relationship between the university and the city. He has had a few

meetings with UA President Ann Weaver Hart and is working with the College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture, and now the Eller College of Management as well, Ewing Gavin said. “Within the last year our involvement with the city has been greatly increased,” said Stephen Gilliland, executive director for Eller Executive Education. “One, Mayor Rothschild has been reaching out to the university in a very proactive way, and the other reason is that there is a new HR director for the city and she has been very proactive about reaching out to us to develop a program.” Gilliland went to a retreat in December with the mayor’s council, the mayor of Phoenix, and the mayor of Mesa, where they worked on business ethics and policy making. At the retreat, they also spoke about what the city of Tucson could be doing, what other cities are doing and what city leaders should be doing. As one example, Mesa’s acronym HEAT stands for its four strategic priorities: healthcare, education, aerospace and tourism. “I think what the mayor is trying to do is something similar,” Gilliland

said. “Tucson’s own blend of ‘What should we really be focusing on for the next several years?’” In March, city leaders will hold a think tank lab to work on setting priorities, according to Ewing Gavin. “We think that will be a useful tool,” Ewing Gavin said. Eller also held a five-day leadership course in December for city managers and leaders, where they sat in a classroom, were given homework and then presented a project on the last day, Gilliland said. “The idea is to take what we know about leadership, [the] business sector, strategy and planning, and to share that with the city so that they can be more strategic in planning,” Gilliland said. Ewing Gavin said that Eller is only working on short-term projects with the city, but Gilliland said that Eller is willing to continue working as long as it can contribute. “I’d like to really feel that we are committed to Tucson,” Gilliland said. “Maybe there hasn’t been much sharing with the U of A and the city government, and yet, we have so much to offer each other. I would like it to be an ongoing process, not a one-shot deal. I hope this is the beginning of a long-term relationship.”

an animal science junior and an intern for ASUA’s Diversity Center. Dance became involved in the program after experiencing the event for herself last year. Topics that will be presented include sizeism and body imagerelated oppression as well as racism, homophobia, cissexism and classism. Volunteers will present personal experiences about enduring and overcoming these hardships. “People may think they are just reading off a script,” said Fabian De La Cruz, a biochemistry sophomore and intern for ASUA’s Diversity Center. “They’re reading a

script they wrote. It’s their story.” The tour will last approximately an hour and a half, including the grand finale of the production, called the Tunnel of Hope, a question-and-answer period. The Tunnel of Hope will make a lasting impression after the powerful scenes of oppression, as uplifting quotes and posters adorn the walls, Shalabi said. This finale is meant to be an optimistic presentation where participants can learn about solutions to the types of oppression people experience in their daily lives. “If we can at least talk about these things, there’s no reason we shouldn’t be able to get along, or at the very least to co-exist,” De La Cruz said.

The Tunnel of Oppression event begins Monday and is set to last two days. The event will highlight the struggles of oppressed groups.

Graduate student focuses on life after space, UA ryan revock Arizona Daily Wildcat

F

rom conducting space research to earning national recognition, a UA graduate student is now nearing the end of his long academic journey. Brian Fox will graduate at the end of the spring semester. Fox’s research at the UA focuses on how radiation in space affects optical wires. He was originally drawn to this general area of research because there are many different “niche” areas researchers can get into. In November 2009, Fox, along with his mentor, Kelly Simmons-Potter, had optical fibers launched into space on the shuttle Atlantis. They were delivered to the International Space Station, where they remained for a year and a half. “To get something into space is very, very rare, just in general,” Fox said. “It is very nice to get something in space and the other thing is to actually publish space type data because lots of things that are sent into space is not actually published.” The wires were contained in a case called MISSE-7, which is approximately the size of a suitcase. The case was attached to the outside of the space station with the fibers exposed to space, according to Simmons-Potter, a UA professor of electrical and computer engineering as well as optics. Simmons-Potter opened up this field of study, which not many people are focused on, Fox said, calling her a “huge inspiration and huge help.” The research is important because the cost of traveling to space is directly linked to weight and optical fibers are extremely lightweight while still performing at a high level, Simmons-Potter said. The fibers were originally only supposed to be in space for six months, but due to delays they stayed up for an extra year before returning to Earth on the space shuttle Endeavour, which was piloted by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ husband Mark Kelly, a former astronaut, in 2011. Fox could have graduated well before the fibers returned from space, according to Simmons-Potter. The team’s research was entered into the Hardened Electronics and Radiation Technology

There are approximately 100 people that present at this conference and out of those, around 20 are selected to move forward and write a journal article about the presentation. This is not a student competition; it is open to professionals and is dominated by professionals, Simmons-Potter said. Fox presented the team’s research at the conference and helped write the journal entry that went on to win the Outstanding Paper Award in March 2012. “I am extremely proud of Brian. I think that he has done a wonderful job, I am delighted to have had the opportunity to work with him for this number of years,” Simmons-Potter said. “I hope that when he moves on that we can continue to collaborate in the future.” Now, Fox is weighing his options for after graduation. He knows he wants a job that will allow him to keep publishing research papers. He said he is excited to graduate in May and is pleased that he was able to be part of “amazing research” here at the UA. “[Graduating] will be bittersweet just because it has been such a good experience,” Fox said.

Climate change not worth the debate dan desrochers Arizona Daily Wildcat

I

’m trying my best not to sound like an angsty teenager. I really am. But when I found out that Sen. Judy Burges, R-Ariz., was proposing a bill to the Arizona Senate that would enable teachers to teach that global warming isn’t caused by humans, I just wanted to go in my room and brood for a while. Senate Bill 1213 is designed so that teachers could examine “strengths and weaknesses of existing scientific theories.” While the wording is innocent enough, the bill is specifically designed to allow science teachers to openly question scientific theories like global warming and evolution in class. But this is what people have to understand: In science, theories generally have a pretty good idea of the truth. These theories have been studied and analyzed thoroughly by many different scientists, who work to poke holes in the arguments and independently verify the results. Yet Burges doesn’t think that scientific theory is good enough for the classroom. “It actually says in the textbooks that if you don’t believe in global change that you’re very misinformed,” Burges said. I wonder why? Could it be because 90 percent of scientists believe that global warming is man-made, according to a report published in 2007 by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change? Or perhaps it’s because of the information more recently provided by the U.S. Global Change Research Program in 2009 that states, “The global warming observed over the past 50 years is due primarily to human-induced emissions of heat-trapping gases.” Burges is right in asserting that teachers should be able to tell students when there isn’t a majority agreement about a particular theory. But there is a majority agreement about global warming, along with the other theories that she is addressing, despite dissenters. In 2012, Peter Ferrara wrote an op-ed to Forbes magazine criticizing “global warming alarmists” and sharing information that he had learned from the International Climate Change Conference, in which there were “calm, dispassionate presentations by serious, pedigreed scientists discussing and explaining reams of data.” The Heartland Institute, a conservative think tank, sponsored the International Climate Change Conference that he attended. The Heartland Institute also worked with Philip Morris to question the link between secondhand smoke and health risks. While intelligent scientific discussion may have taken place at the conference (which has been subject to decreases in participation and funding in recent years), chances are that the science discussed there was about as fair and balanced as Fox News. Burges might be focusing on this issue because she feels it’s important for all sides of a controversial issue to be discussed, but global warming shouldn’t be controversial anymore. We have an obligation to teach future generations about the majority opinion in scientific studies. Yes, 30,000 scientists may have signed a paper claiming that global warming isn’t man-made, but those 30,000 people are not even close to the majority of experts. It is time to put the global warming debate to bed. It has already stayed up way past its bedtime, and will likely be really grumpy tomorrow morning when it finds out that we haven’t done anything to fix it. At this point, global warming isn’t a scientific issue, it’s a political one. With a consensus in the scientific community, the politicians now have to decide what is going to be done about the situation. Washington needs to provide legitimate, straightforward policy that supports alternative energy and lessens our reliance on fossil fuels. We don’t want a debate about whether or not global warming is real, we want a debate about what can be done to fix it. We want students to do projects about the advantages of nuclear versus solar energy, biofuels and wind turbines. But when people like Burges try to rekindle a debate that has long been settled in the scientific community, we take one giant leap backwards for mankind. — Dan Desrochers is the opinions editor.

Binge viewing harmful to college student health W

e all have those lazy days when we’d much rather catch up on “Breaking Bad” or “Pretty Little Liars” while cozy in bed than study. But after the first episode ends comes the real challenge: to resist finding out what happens next and finally start that homework assignment you’ve been putting off. Before you know it, one episode has become an all-day marathon. This is called “binge-viewing,” and it is altering the television industry and how TV series are watched. “Binging” usually has negative connotations, and binge-viewing is no exception. It’s not watching too much TV that’s the problem, it’s watching it all at once. Instead of taking time to consume, digest and enjoy, we are just stuffing ourselves as if every day in the television world has become Thanksgiving. Netflix has been capitalizing on this new trend with a feature called “postplay” that encourages binge-viewing. When a TV show ends and the credits begin to roll, an algorithm determines the time when most previous viewers clicked off and at that moment, the credits minimize and a pop-up menu prompts

Police Beat maxwell j. mangold Arizona Daily Wildcat

Library hijinks

I am Student Media

An intoxicated UA student was arrested on charges of minor in possession after he was found sleeping on a third-floor sofa in the UA Main Library at 4:05 a.m. on Feb. 1. Library staff contacted the University of Arizona Police Department when they were unable to wake the student. There was vomit on his pants and the floor near him, staff noted. When police officers arrived, they were able to wake the man. The student identified himself with his Texas driver’s license, but couldn’t explain why he was sleeping in the library. UAPD then asked what dorm he lived in and the student responded, “Dallas.” The student had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. He smelled like alcohol, and he said that he had been drinking at an off-campus party. An officer escorted the student to the bathroom so he could clean himself up with paper towels before leading him outside to a patrol car. UAPD gave the student a ride back to his dorm, Villa Del Puente Residence Hall, before citing and releasing him for minor in possession.

Caught tire-handed

Why I work here:

Police responded to a bike theft in progress near Coconino Residence Hall at 5:36 a.m. on Feb. 4. The caller reported seeing a woman put bike tires in the back of a blue pickup before heading east on Second Street. UAPD officers noticed a blue Ford F-150 pickup while driving to the scene and pulled the truck driver over. UAPD noticed a bike tire in the pickup bed before identifying the female driver and her male passenger. The woman said she was delivering newspapers when she noticed the unsecured tire outside of Coconino, so she put it in the back of her truck. Police then asked the woman again what had happened. The tire had been on a bike, but the tire bolt was loose, so she picked it up and put it in her truck, she replied. She doesn’t even own a bike, she added, and taking the object was “stupid.” No other evidence was found in the car and the owner of the tire is unknown. The item was entered into evidence and the woman was cited and released for theft.

I am passionate about publication design and love the people I work with. Using creativity to make stories visually appealing and presentable is exactly what I want to do with my life.

Licking men

UAPD officers responded to a report of vandalism at Likins Hall at 2:46 p.m. on Feb 4. Upon arrival, UAPD officers met with the community director of the hall, who had found a piece of paper posted on the fourth floor that named a resident and said he “likes to lick men.” When police arrived, the piece of paper had already been taken down. The community director sent police a photo of the item. There are currently no suspects, but a victims right’s form was completed and a photo of the vandalism was placed into evidence.

UA honors 40 years in McKale Center

KELSEE BECKER/ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

IN 40 YEARS, McKale Center remains almost unchanged from the original construction aside from the color of the roof, which has been weathered over time. Arizona basketball has amassed a 505101 record in McKale, and the arena also houses women’s basketball, volleyball and gymnastics.

Arizona. The two senior starters combined for 48 points on 16-for-26 shooting, eight rebounds and seven assists. Add that to the excitable Wildcat fanbase, and No. 7 Arizona was too much for Wednesday night’s McKale Center celebraStanford at home. tion started with a whimper, but ended with a “It’s always a great environment to play in [McKale resounding roar, as the Wildcats’ 73-66 victory against Stanford honored the 40th anniversary of the Center] because it has such a great crowd,” Stanford head coach Johnny Dawkins said. “They do a great stadium in style. job, of course, with the history and tradition here.

Memorable dates in McKale Center history: Feb. 1, 1973: The UA plays its first game in McKale Center. Jan. 10, 1976: Al Fleming scores 41 points against Detroit, which is still a McKale record for points by an Arizona player. Detroit’s head coach at the time was Dick Vitale. Jan. 20, 1984: First game following Steve Kerr’s father’s assassination vs. ASU, moment of silence held before game. When Kerr checks in early in the first half, he nailed a 25-footer. This was before the 3-point line existed.

Memorable dates in McKale Center history: Feb. 3, 2003: Loren Woods blocks a then-NCAA record 14 shots in a 77-71 win over Oregon. Woods had a triple double in that game (16 points, 10 rebounds, 14 blocks). June 8, 2006: The 2006 Softball National Championship Celebration

Chol sees more minutes in win over Cardinal points. Dwight Powell had a team-high 24 points and 10 rebounds for the Cardinal. Arizona counteracted with a strong second half, powered by the UA’s senior leaders — Hill and Lyons. Lyons scored his points on 9-of-13 shooting and added six assists against two turnovers. “It was his best game at Arizona,” Miller said. Hill struggled in the first half, going 1-of6 with three points. But in a scoring barrage late in the second half, he scored 12 of Arizona’s final 21 points and spurred a 14-3 run with 5:43 remaining to put the game away. He finished with a season-high 23 points and added six rebounds. “I just picked it up,” Hill said. “I think I started off pretty terrible, but you just gotta put that behind you.”

It was the 40th anniversary of McKale Center. With No. 7 Arizona’s 73-66 win against Stanford, the Wildcats took sole possession of first place in the Pac-12, at least for the time being. “But the story of tonight’s game was Angelo Chol,” head coach Sean Miller said. Before Wednesday night, the little-used sophomore center had been biding his time on the bench. But he stayed with the process. Chol only played 7.8 minutes per game coming in, and had three DNP’s, but he stayed with the process. Miller kept telling him, “Be ready, Chol. Be ready. You’re going to get your opportunity.” “I mean, it’s been frustrating,” Chol said. “But I didn’t get down on myself, I just kept going with the process. [Miller’s] always saying, ‘Go with the process’. “I believe in coach, so I’m going to do what he says.” Chol finally got his chance. And he delivered. In playing a career-high 24 minutes, Chol grabbed a career-high eight rebounds and scored six points on 3-of-6 shooting. The Wildcats didn’t take their first lead against the Cardinal until five minutes had passed in the final half, but with 4:08 remaining, Chol received a timely Mark Lyons pass and slammed it home, putting Arizona ahead for good. “I’m one of the guys who really cheers Chol on,” said Lyons, who scored a season-high 25 points. “We all do. I got a lot of faith in him and I know when he gets into the game. He was just clicking on all cylinders honestly.” It helped that his main competitors for minutes — Brandon Ashley, Kaleb Tarczewski and

Grant Jerrett — were virtually non-existent. Ashley fouled out after playing just 13 minutes, and recorded six points on 2-of-8 shooting; Tarczewski played 13 minutes as well, and had one point and two rebounds; Jerrett was held out with a foot injury. Without Chol, Miller said, Arizona would not have won. That’s a far cry from the player that hadn’t played a meaningful minute in weeks, if at all. And he played with the energy of a starter. “I even liked when he goaltended,” senior forward Solomon Hill said of a Chol’s failed putback attempt late in the first half. “I think the ball was going in, but the fact that he was on the rim like that showed his aggressiveness.”

Chol didn’t play for the first six minutes of the game, though, wherein the Wildcats fell into a quick 10-0 deficit. “We were down 10-0,” Miller said, “but you can always say we’ve been here before.” In recent games against Washington, UCLA and Oregon, the Wildcats fell behind big, and wound up losing two of those games. Arizona stepped up defensively, though, and kept it from getting out of hand. The Wildcats shot 10-of-29 (34.5 percent) from the field in the first half, but Stanford shot 8-of-27 (29.6 percent). Four early 3-pointers, including two from guard Aaron Bright, helped the Cardinal to a 27-26 halftime lead. Bright, a 27.8 percent 3-point shooter coming in, hit 4-of-7 threes on the game for 16

JERRETT MAY PLAY ON SUNDAY For the first time this season, Arizona played without one of its “elite eight,” that is, the Wildcats’ eight-man rotation that has received the lion’s share of playing time through 22 games. Freshman forward Grant Jerrett missed Wednesday’s game with a foot injury, and head coach Sean Miller isn’t sure if he will suit up when the UA welcomes Cal to McKale Center on Sunday night. “Grant may be available on Sunday,” Miller said. “We’re not there yet so we’ll keep an eye on him.” — Zack Rosenblatt

Q A UA needs more structure Walton: kyle johnson

Arizona Daily Wildcat

ESPN analyst and NBA Hall-of-Famer Bill Walton made an appearance before students and faculty Wednesday, detailing his accomplishments and the lessons he’s learned through life. As a center at UCLA, Walton won two national championships and was a three-time Naismith College Player of the Year and is also the father of former Wildcat Luke Walton. Bill sat down with the Daily Wildcat after his lecture to discuss Pac-12 basketball and his memories of Arizona. Daily Wildcat: While you didn’t play against the Lute Olson-era Wildcats, what’s your take on the rivalry between UCLA and the UA? Bill Walton: It’s the signature rivalry in the western United States. When UCLA and Arizona play, it’s fantastic. Lute Olson is the 21st-century version of John Wooden and what he has done in terms of building this community. UCLA basketball was nothing before John Wooden got there, and he sold it. He built an entire world that revolves around

what have you seen from Arizona’s three freshman big men? I love them and I’d like to see them more. They’re fine young men and they’re terrific talents, but they need to be more involved for the Wildcats to join the elites of college basketball this season. There are five teams at the top for me, in no particular order because there isn’t one team that stands out. Indiana and Duke, which have unique styles that I most appreciate, the team style … and then Syracuse, Florida and Kansas. For Arizona to join that group, its biggest challenge is on the offensive end. They need more structure, more discipline and more diversified offense. It just can’t be one-on-one dribbling by the guards and small forwards. You have to have to have a pivot presence — high post, mid post and low post. It doesn’t matter who those guys are, Nick Johnson and Solomon Hill can play that position. Kaleb Tarczewski and Brandon Ashley may be able to play that position. But if not, they need to be utilized in a constant flow where every player on the court is making a positive contribution on every possession. That’s the challenge for the Wildcats to get to the top.

UCLA basketball and Lute Olson did the exact same thing here. And the friendship between coach Wooden and coach Olson was just fantastic to witness. To have our son play for Lute Olson, it was just an incredible privilege, especially with the friendships and relationships that Luke has built because of his choice to come here. The great coaches … they make their players better. Better basketball players, and more importantly better people. And to see what Lute Olson has been able to do here, he might have been better off if he just started his own religion. I would be a disciple. You played in Arizona during the 1974 NCAA Tournament, what do you remember from then and what’s your impression of Tucson now? We had a fantastic time here, we won and we had a day off between the games. We had a great Jacuzzi at our hotel — and the cheerleaders were staying at the same hotel. It was a very nice time. But this is such a great place. I love it here, Tucson. The bike riding here and the natural environment; it’s just so perfect here. After seeing them play twice in person,

FORMER UCLA BRUIN Bill Walton has broadcasted two of the last three Arizona games for ESPN.

Rodriguez: ‘Our kind of guys’ make up 2013 class kyle wasson/arizona Daily Wildcat

ARIZONA FOOTBALL SIGNED a class that coach Rich Rodriguez says “met a lot of needs.” The Wildcats signed 12 offensive and 10 defensive players, as well as two athletes.

Arizona head football coach Rich Rodriguez received fax after fax Wednesday morning from “OKG’s,” who will be the future of the Wildcats’ football program. “OKG’s,” which stands for “our kind of guy,” are “the guys that are talented and have the skill set,” Rodriguez said Wednesday. “They certainly have size, ability and the type of mentality that they’re competitive and want to keep getting better.” On-campus recruiting coordinator and director of player personnel Matt Dudek came up with the saying as a way to explain what Rodriguez and the Arizona coaching staff wants out of potential players. Rodriguez is so hands-on in the recruiting process, in fact, that the secondyear coach watches film of every prospect before giving the OK to extend a scholarship offer. “I trust Matt and the rest of the personnel in the recruiting process, but before we offer a scholarship, I have to see them,” Rodriguez said. The first week of February has become a holiday of sorts for college coaches, as Wednesday marked National Signing Day, or the first day that high school players can officially commit to where they will be playing college football.

Arizona hauled in 24 Letters of Intent, and the spectacle was broadcast live by the football program during a Google Plus Hangout that started at 5 a.m. Of the recruits, 12 are offensive players, 10 are defensive and two fall under the category of athletes. “We met a lot of needs,” Rodriguez said. “You definitely need to wait a few years before you can evaluate a recruiting class. There are several guys in this class that will probably have an opportunity to play early and be great contributors.” Arguably the biggest open position that the 2013 recruiting class will have a chance to compete for is at quarterback. Rodriguez signed quarterbacks Anu Solomon and junior college transfer Jesse Scroggins, who is already attending classes at the UA, in addition to athlete Khari McGee. Rodriguez said that the Fresno, Calif., native was “too good of an athlete not to take. Whether it’s at quarterback or receiver, Khari McGee can play at this level.” Solomon, a four-star prospect according to Rivals.com, amassed a 56-4 career record in high school and won four state championships, Rodriguez said. In his senior year, he threw for 2,849 yards and 35 touchdowns. For all of Solomon’s success, Scroggins may have the early nod in the fight for repetitions

If this isn’t the lastest issue of the Daily Wildcat, you better have kept your receipt for the wrapping paper. The Daily Wildcat

because of his experience. Scroggins committed to USC in 2010 before transferring to El Camino College in Torrance, Calif. Scroggins, who is 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds, appeared in eight of 10 games at El Camino and threw for 1,148 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions. “I think we certainly were looking for a guy that could come in and provide competition for [senior quarterback] B.J. Denker and the rest of the crew,” Rodriguez said. “I think he [Scroggins] was kind of lingering in junior college land and was looking for a place to prove himself.” During the 2012 season, injuries and inexperience ravaged the Arizona defense to the point that Rodriguez was regularly sending walk-ons into the game for major playing time, simply because they were available, not because they were ready to play. In this class, there are three defensive linemen, two defensive backs and five linebackers, the thinnest position on the roster. Rodriguez said it will take another class for him to feel comfortable with the number of defensive players that actually see playing time, and like last year, “Some of these guys are going to play early and most likely before they’re ready, but we have to do our job as coaches to make newcomers ready.”

carey facing discipline Football head coach Rich Rodriguez updated the media on the status of junior running back Ka’Deem Carey, who has had his share of legal troubles this semester. Carey is facing charges for misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct following an incident with his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Marissa Rambow. Two weeks ago, Carey was ejected from a men’s basketball game against UCLA after refusing to leave the seats he was occupying. Rodriguez had only brief remarks on Carey in Wednesday’s press conference. “We’re disciplining him,” Rodriguez said. “We’re aware of the situation, and he’s got some work to do. But he’s still on the team.”

Dunham: Ballsiest ‘Girl’ on TV? ERIN DESOTO Arizona Daily Wildcat

L

PRESS PHOTO

ena Dunham, two-time Golden Globe winner and lead actress and producer of the hit HBO series “Girls,” is shattering the image of the perfect Hollywood starlet. With her sharp wit and irresistible charm, it’s no wonder “Girls” has become a success. If you haven’t seen “Girls,” do so as soon as possible. It’s hilarious, heartfelt and pushes the envelope on a number of levels. Lena Dunham is phenomenal as lead gal Hannah Horvath, but at first glance she’s not the average size zero actress. And of course, people have noticed. The show is filled with sex scenes and nudity, most of which involve Hannah. She swears, drinks, does drugs and has tattoos. In other words, Hannah does not give a flying fuck what anyone thinks, and that is commendable. What makes Dunham so outstanding is her ability to relate to 20-something-year-old women who are just trying to get by in life. In perhaps the most sympathy-inducing and heartbreaking scene, Hannah says, “No one could ever hate me as much as I hate

myself. So any mean things someone’s gonna think to say about me, I’ve already said to me, about me, probably within the last half hour.” It is Dunham’s realness that makes her a complete and total badass. Though the show has often been compared to “Sex and the City,” Hannah is no Carrie Bradshaw. While both reside in New York City, Hannah’s life is nowhere near as glamorous as Carrie’s. In actuality, Hannah is a struggling postgrad who has failed to find a real job with her English degree and whose love life is in shambles. Dunham, who is also one of the writers for “Girls,” perfectly captures the dysfunctional reality that is the life of a young adult in today’s society. No, she is not spectacularly beautiful or thin, and that is why we should love her all the more. Lena Dunham proves that contrary to popular opinion, you do not have to be the epitome of physical splendor to be successful. She shows that women can make a name for themselves in Hollywood regardless of their body type. In a society that strives for the “thin ideal,” we need more women like Dunham who aren’t afraid to showcase their talents despite the critics calling them “short and pear-shaped” or “less than model-ish.” Dunham is by no means the first Hollywood crusader in the feminist movement, but she’s one of the ballsiest.

’90s childhood trends like Lisa Frank, Doc Martens are back AUDREY MOLLOW Arizona Daily Wildcat

Children of the ’90s, take heed. Your formative years may be as far gone as Walkman tape players and Britney Spears’ bubblegum-pink image, but the glory of the ’90s is trending again. Equipped with Dr. Martens and Lisa Frank merchandise, fashion is reviving all the trappings of a gnarly generation. If there is ever a time for a ’90s comeback, it’s now. Urban Outfitters released a limited edition line of retro Lisa Frank merchandise in October of 2012, charming buyers with nostalgic whimsy. For those who can’t recall, the confectionary, psychedelic cartoons were the face of every folder and Trapper Keeper of the decade. If you didn’t own a Lisa Frank backpack, the kid who sat next you at lunch certainly did.

A limited time offer, the resurfacing of this major ’90s fad was prophetic for fashion. Now “Doc” Martens, the messiah of ’90s grunge footwear, are hitting the pavement like it’s 1995. The wide-toed industrial boots were originally taken up by British skinheads in the ’60s as a revolt against propriety. They have since been regarded as symbols of subversive youth in revolt, and not since the angst of the ’90s have these boots been considered high fashion. The oversized boot has taken a trendy turn following several designer debuts for spring of 2013. Most recently, British icon Agyness Deyn has released her own line of designer Doc Martens that is already appearing in department stores here in the U.S. Nineties apparel has not been this mainstream since Furbies came in Happy Meals. Riding on the shirt tails of teen rebellion from

the ’80s, the decade was a step even further away from normalcy. The freak was unleashed. The entire decade was disheveled and dressed in defiance of fashion itself. To be trendy in the ’90s was to be deliberately and earnestly unfashionable. The glorification of gaudy was the brainchild of grunge. The look was leisurely and attainable: oversized sweaters, androngynous clothing, maxi dresses, denim jackets, massive band shirts, long skirts, shapeless crop tops, chambray button ups, leather, high-waisted shorts, flower child glasses and distressed jeans. Tough, oversized boots and shoes accompanied all non-outfits. Doc Martens earned their rightful place. The look was an artfully crafted disregard for appearing the slightest bit interested in, well, anything. This style may strike you as familiar, because chances are you’re wearing it.
