Ukraine conflict hits home BY ETHAN MCSWEENEY The Daily Wildcat
Sergii Gorbachov is worried. The second year master’s student studying Russian is thinking of his family back home in Ukraine now, as he watches his country falling apart on the news. The Eastern European country of 45 million is in crisis. In the past two weeks, Ukraine has seen a revolution and an invasion. Late last week Russian military units covertly and swiftly seized control of Crimea, a peninsula in southern Ukraine. War seems a grim prospect to Gorbachov. His hometown of
Kharkiv, Ukraine, is only 20 miles from the Russian border. What’s even more disconcerting to him is what could happen to his 26-year-old brother, a member of the Ukrainian army reserves. “He will be called to go to war,” Gorbachov said. “If something happens, he could die.” Unease hangs over the whole of Ukraine as well, as neither side seems ready to back down, according to Pat Willerton, an associate professor of political science. Both Ukraine and Russia believe time is on their side. “I’m pretty confident that the Russians are not leaving,” Willerton said. “They will not leave if they
feel that their interests and those of Russians and Russian-oriented Ukrainians are not being respected.” Protests had been going on for months in Ukraine’s capital Kiev over Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s decision to not seek closer ties with the European Union, but they became increasingly violent after the government enacted laws cracking down on protesters’ rights. Two weeks ago, Yanukovych was ousted from power following bloody protests in Kiev that resulted in dozens of deaths. Gorbachov was not upset to see the government go. “I didn’t like the government
because everything is corrupt — education, health care, police,” Gorbachov said. “That’s why I came here.” Willerton said the ousting of Yanukovych and the quick ascension of a new nationalist-oriented government in Kiev has led Russia to take actions to protect ethnic Russians and Russian citizens in Ukraine. The violence since the overthrow of Yanukovych hasn’t been as one-sided as the Russians claim, according to Anna Vozna, a first-year master’s student studying Russian,

Social networking giant Facebook announced its purchase of smartphone app WhatsApp for $19 billion last month. WhatsApp is a texting app that allows users to send messages to each other without being charged by their phone company. Apps like WhatsApp allow their users to share pictures, jokes and stories with each other — but according to some, they can also compromise users’ privacy. Journalism professor Michael McKisson said that people share a lot of personal information publicly on social network sites like Facebook and the corresponding apps, which means everyone should be thinking about the security of their data. “There’s a potential that someone could come in and steal that information, or even that Facebook is using it in a way that you didn’t think about,” McKisson said. However, McKisson made a distinction between sharing information over text and sharing through an app: The revenue of phone companies like Verizon and T-Mobile may allow them to implement more effective security than the makers of a startup app, he said. Michelle Ortega, a sociology senior from Mexico, said she does not worry about her information being stolen while using WhatsApp. She said WhatsApp is the only way to text her family and friends in Mexico without being charged international fees. “A lot of my friends that are from my country use it, too, here in the

Nonprofits, refugees share in fruit of labors BY MADISON BRODSKY
The Daily Wildcat
Community organizations Iskashitaa, UA Community Garden and UA Campus Pantry have teamed up to put on an event this Saturday that will give the Tucson community members a new outlook on the fresh produce they eat. Iskashitaa pairs refugees with community volunteers to share growing techniques from their home countries in order to grow and provide fresh produce for those in Tucson who are in need of better nutrition . Emily Sylvia, an international development senior, said she was inspired to get involved and create such an event because she wants to reduce food waste in Tucson and give back to the community. Iskashitaa has found many refugees with different backgrounds in and experiences harvesting who are willing to participate in the event, according to Sylvia. One refugee participating in the event is not bringing the actual herbs, but is bringing his knowledge of growing techniques from Iraq, she added. There has never been a gardening plot on the UA campus before, according to Sylvia, and the gardening will give community members a chance to connect with one another. “It is important for members of our community to get involved, because not only will they get to reconnect with the herbs and the greater community, but they will get the opportunity to meet more of the community that we live in,” Sylvia said. “Tucson is one of

the largest places that refugees reside [in], and [the refugees] are excited to share their stories about their lives in their countries in comparison to their lives now in America.” Sylvia said the event is concerned with justice, because Iskashitaa is helping to redistribute good nutrition to low-income households through fresh produce. Taylor Sanders, a sustainable plant systems sophomore and manager of the UA Community Garden is providing Iskashitaa with three full plots for free to allow them to grow whatever they’d like with the refugees and volunteers. Sanders said she looks forward to seeing the excited faces of those in the community
when they get fresh produce, rather than the canned foods they usually receive. “It’s really cool to see these three organizations caring about the same issue in our community because we are all so diverse, but we all care about our community and eliminating food waste in Tucson,” Sanders said. “I hope that this event is the beginning of a long-term partnership.”

who originates from Kharkiv. The images of pro-Ukrainian protesters in her hometown being dragged through the streets and forced to their knees in the middle of the square are deeply troubling to her. “It’s Ukrainians who have problems there, not Russians,” Vozna said. Mikhail Beznosov, a limited-term adjunct instructor in political science, is currently in Kharkiv as tensions simmer. He said in an email that the situation in the city is “quite tense.” Beznosov waited for the arrival of pro-Ukrainian protesters following Yanukovych’s ousting — and they came. They took control of the regional administration building in the city and attempted to destroy a statue of Vladimir Lenin in the central square. Beznosov said most people in southern and eastern Ukraine, areas seen as pro-Russian, are not happy with the new government in Kiev. They still view Yanukovych as the legitimate president of Ukraine, and see the protesters as nationalists with a “neo-Nazi essence.” Beznosov also leads the Arizona in Yalta study abroad summer program for the political science department, a program that is now in limbo given the current crisis in Crimea. Yalta lies on the southern coast of the Crimean peninsula. The UA Study Abroad and Student Exchange Office has decided that hosting the program in Yalta is no longer feasible given the security

situation in the area, but Beznosov said he is looking at other options for students who applied for the program. He said he offered the countries of Bulgaria, Georgia and Montenegro as alternatives. The problem in Crimea is not simply a present-day conflict, said Teresa Polowy, head of the Department of Russian and Slavic Studies. Polowy’s ties to the area lay
in that his grandparents are from western Ukraine. “This is a 21st century iteration of a situation that has existed in Ukraine for 500 years or more,” Polowy said. Polowy said Ukraine has long been torn between whether it should be closer to the West and Europe or toward the East and Russia. Crimea has a long history that must be understood as well, Polowy added.
Nikita Khrushchev handed Crimea over to Ukraine from Russia in 1954 when the two were still republics within the greater Soviet Union. Crimea is home to a large population of ethnic Russians, and Russian is the predominant language spoken there. Strategically, Crimea is home to a Russian naval base in the city of Sevastopol. “It’s about Putin really reclaiming
those strategic areas for Russia,” Polowy said. “Crimea was attached to Ukraine artificially.” Gorbachov said he is uncertain of what comes next for Ukraine. A week ago, he never would have guessed that Russia would invade Crimea. Vozna said she thinks the situation will improve now that Western nations are taking measures to punish Russia for its action, and that it will send a message to Putin. “Maybe people will understand that if we allow him to take Ukraine now, it may spread all over Europe, because he is dangerous,” Vozna said. Willerton said it is highly unlikely that the U.S. or the West will intervene militarily because Ukraine is not a vital interest — not to mention the U.S. is war-weary as it is. Ukrainians and Russians don’t want to fight each other, Willerton said, but he emphasized that the crisis is not likely to end any time soon. “It’s going to be hard to please everybody,” Willerton said. “Everyone seems to agree that they don’t want to break the country up, but I don’t know where it goes from here. I don’t know how you please Russians in the East and Crimea and Ukrainians in the West.” Vozna planned on staying at the UA after she gets her master’s, but now she’s not so sure. “Now, when I see all [these] events going on in my country,” Vozna said, “I think that I want to come back.”

WASHINGTON — Winter squeezed the Eastern United States on Monday, bringing snow and promising days of frigid temperatures in the region where too many unwanted, icy records have already been set. Snow began falling in the mid-Atlantic region and the federal government took a snow day — again. Nasty winds were blowing up the Eastern states and officials warned of hazardous driving conditions. “A late-season winter storm will continue to shift eastward through the Tennessee Valley and the mid-Atlantic today, making for hazardous travel conditions,” the National Weather Service warned. “Unseasonably cold temperatures more typical of January will prevail east of the Rocky Mountains for the next few days, keeping winter around for a while longer.” As much as 10 inches of snow could fall by day’s end in the Washington area, with parts of Maryland expected to bear the brunt. The area north of Philadelphia was expected to get around 6 inches, while parts of New Jersey were expected to receive a foot of snow. Emergencies were declared in Virginia, Tennessee and New Jersey. School was canceled, bus service was halted in places and federal workers in the Washington area were told to stay home Monday.

App fee not worth protesting BY Shelby Thomas The Daily Wildcat
he UA has a wide variety of study abroad opportunities that offer priceless and irreplaceable experiences to UA students, but unfortunately, those memories don’t come cheap. Each trip costs thousands of dollars on its own, but students must pay another $80 on top of that, simply for applying. I’ve listened to the complaints, seen the eye rolls and heard the sighs when my peers make the irreversible click that sends a bill straight to their bursar’s account. Every dime makes a difference to students, but when a student decides to apply for a program, a non-refundable fee of $80 is charged to their bursar’s account “whether [they] decide to complete the application or not,” according to the Global Initiatives Website. An article in The Huffington Post featured a study which revealed that “almost 80 percent of young adults (average age of just over 18) worry about debt and are experiencing debt-related stress in their daily lives.” Paying a stress-inducing application fee that nears $100 is frustrating to say the least, but students might be a bit more willing to pay if they knew its reasonable and necessary purpose. Since Study Abroad does not receive direct state or tuition funding, the $80 specifically funds promotion, advice regarding applications, application database software and site licenses, database maintenance and personnel costs, said Mike Proctor, the vice president for Global Initiatives. “Over the last few years, [Study Abroad] has generated $84,000 from application fees annually and, of this, roughly $35,000 covers the database software and site license alone,” Proctor said. The staff also uses the revenue from the fee to fund consultation services that help students confidently select which study abroad program best fits them, ultimately saving students time and money — including that $80 fee — by decreasing their chances of filling out multiple applications, Proctor added. From the summer of 2013 through spring of this year, 1,205 students participated in 100 different study abroad programs in 47 different countries, according to Janis Rutherford, senior business manager for Global Initiatives. Processing all of those applications costs money, whether that money is classified as application fees or program fees. From the moment we click “start” and create applications, we’re racking up costs for Global Initiatives. The $80 charge will exist whether or not students are serious about traveling, and whether or not they are sure of the trip they want to take, but isolating the application fee helps reduce the overall price to study abroad. By not including application fees in the program dues, students who commit to their program wholeheartedly won’t have to deal with the consequences of their peers’ indecision. Some students, like Katie Walters, a computer science sophomore who studied in Germany over the summer, feel that the application fee is a small price to pay for the opportunity to study abroad. Walters earned six units of UA credit, which would have cost her about $2,500 in Tucson. The program abroad cost her $2,980, which included the application fee, the class, a dorm room, meals and other excursions, she said. “Basically, I got the chance to live in Europe instead of Tucson for $400, a plane ticket and an app fee,” Walters said. When it comes to the application fee itself, Walters said she believes it’s a pretty good deal. “I don’t think the $80 app fee is completely unreasonable,” he said. “Studying abroad is such a huge financial investment, a very worthwhile one in my opinion, that an $80 fee shouldn’t really prevent someone from applying.” Still, the well-being of stressed students is not to be taken lightly. Students may feel better about paying $80 for their application if they recognize how lifechanging this experience could be. By taking advantage of information sessions and reaching out to study abroad coordinators, who are prepared to provide insight into which program would be a good fit for a student, students may come to realize that $80 is actually a bargain.

Hovering parents hinder BY Maura Higgs The Daily Wildcat
here are no set rules about how to communicate with your family. I, for instance, FaceTime my dog. I text my sister, and I’m always talking to my mom on the phone while I walk home from campus. Anyone else in my family — my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins — puts me on edge every time we talk. The questions are always: “How is school going?” “Are you looking for another job or a research position?” “Do you have a boyfriend yet?” Growing up is difficult enough without certain relatives watching me over my shoulder. Don’t get me wrong. I appreciate the support my entire family provides me. Nice texts and Facebook messages are encouraging and provide that little bit of comfort I need sometimes. And after all, I have friends who have the whole overprotective thing a lot worse.

If you find you don’t have much say in your everyday life, discuss this with them. Find ways to have a little bit more freedom. Join a club you wouldn’t normally. Stay out late eating donuts and drinking coffee with that classmate you like. Above all, don’t make your college experience something you’ll regret later in life — just because someone else made those important decisions for you. — Maura Higgs is a neuroscience and cognitive science sophomore.

Pulse of the Pac Columnists from the Pac-12 write about Pussy Riot passivism, Palestine on film and pure fandom From “Pussy Riot no more than hooligans” by Jordan Bohannon Somebody needs to tell the members of Russian femme-punk band Pussy Riot to quit while they’re ahead. Otherwise, we should just force them to watch the last few seasons of “American Idol.” After initial arrests and rise to fame in 2012, the punk rock collective has tapered off into a tailspin of drama, meaningless antics and irrelevance. ... The timing [during the Olympics] was perfect for Pussy Riot to do something really special, but, running with a sports metaphor, it dropped the ball. This is bigger than just dropping the ball this time — this is a sign that Pussy Riot is done for good. It has done all it is going to do, and it needs to step off the international stage. ... Almost two years ago … Pussy Riot’s members were saviors to punk idealists everywhere. Now they are little more than the hooligans they were originally convicted of being.

From “Oscar recognition of ‘Palestine’ a good step” by Yasmeen Serhan Increasingly over the past few years, films about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict have made their way from the war-torn region to Hollywood. This year, however, there’s a notable precedent — for though the Palestinian territories are yet to be recognized as a state by the United Nations, Palestine already has an Oscar nomination to its name. … This nomination, however, is more than just recognition of a nearly 50-year-old military occupation. It’s also about a people who, despite the daily struggle of living under occupation, manage to create art that can tell their stories. ... The national identity of a film can be abstract, especially when it comes to contested land such as the Palestinian territories. Yet ... this nomination goes to affirm the legitimacy of the Palestinian people, both socially and culturally. The Daily Trojan University of Southern California

From “You’re not fanatic enough to count as a fan, are you?” by Cassie Ruud To be in a fandom is to be part of a strangely sophisticated hierarchical order that depends on how much of the creative media you’ve consumed, and how you intellectually apply it to your life. ... Casual fans are on the lowest rung of the fandom ladder. The true and big fans see them as inferior. Eventually, what all of this revolves around is similarity of interest between human beings — we want to be able to talk to others about things we’re passionate about. If people are incapable of understanding things the way we do, then it’s likely that the lack of common interests has the potential to drive us away from them. ... When this contextual communication does exist, it has the potential to do great things — like the Harry Potter Alliance, which formed to educate folks about social issues and create civil engagement in the subjects of literacy, equality and human rights.

Too much liquor
A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for underage drinking on Feb. 21. The University of Arizona Police Department responded after an officer saw a woman and man helping another woman walk down Highland Avenue near Villa del Puente Residence Hall around midnight. The officer approached the group and asked them if everything was OK. The two people helping the student said that they did not know who the woman was, but they saw her sitting outside of Alpha Phi and did not think it was a good idea to leave her all alone. The other two left after the officer began to speak to the student. The officer asked the student for identification, noticing that her eyes were extremely bloodshot and watery, and that she was having a hard time speaking. She was also having trouble standing and her breath smelled strongly of intoxicants. The student said she had been drinking heavily and that she wanted to get back home to Villa del Puente. She told the officer that her roommate would be there to take care of her, but when they arrived her roommate was not there. The officer noticed that the student had several cuts and bruises on her shoulders and legs from falling on the walk home and decided to contact Tucson Fire Department. When TFD personnel arrived, they concluded that she needed to be transported to the University of Arizona Medical Center for extreme intoxication. When the student was coherent, she said she had been drinking large amounts of hard liquor but could not recall what kind of liquor, or where she was consuming it. The student was treated and diverted to the Dean of Students Office.

A UA student was transported to UAMC around 3:30 a.m. on Feb. 21 for extreme intoxication. A UAPD officer responded to Coronado Residence Hall after the resident assistant on duty saw a woman vomiting in her bathroom. The officer spoke to the student’s roommate, who said that she had been ill for over an hour and had no idea where her roommate was earlier that night, but knows she was out with her sorority sisters drinking. The student’s roommate said that someone had brought her home after they found her passed out in the residence hall elevator. She was worried, so she had contacted UAPD as well as the student’s parents. The UAPD officer called TFD to evaluate the student because she was incoherent. TFD determined that the student was heavily intoxicated and needed further medical attention, and she was taken to UAMC. The student was treated and referred to the Dean of Students Office.

Beavers seek another UA upset BY EVAN ROSENFELD The Daily Wildcat
The No. 3 Arizona men’s basketball team will face off against Oregon State on Wednesday night at Gill Coliseum. Tipoff is set for 9 p.m. MST and will be televised on Fox Sports 1. This will be the penultimate game of the regular season. Oregon State (15-13, 7-9 Pac-12 Conference) will look for its first upset over a top-five team since 2000, when it beat the No. 3-ranked Wildcats, 70-69, in overtime at home. This Arizona (27-2, 14-2) squad is looking to become the first UA team to lead the Pac-12 in scoring defense since the school joined the league in 1978. After 78 meetings, Arizona holds a 57-20 game advantage over the Beavers and has won 21 of 35 games in Corvallis, Ore. The Wildcats have also won the last six contests against Oregon State, with the Beavers’ last win coming on a one-point decision in January 2011 at Gill Coliseum. UA head coach Sean Miller said that this week, the Wildcats will play as if they are still fighting for the Pac12 championship. Junior guard Nick Johnson said the UA can’t become complacent on this road trip, despite the fact that it just clinched a league title. “For me, 16-2 sounds a lot better than 14-4 in conference,” Johnson said. “We’ve got to approach it like we’re playing to win. We’re playing for a seed, and at the end of the day, we want to control our own destiny and get put in the best situation possible.” A loss could damage the UA’s chances for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. “We have a tough road trip ahead of us,” Johnson said, “but we’re clicking on all cylinders right now. We’ve just got to approach it like its any other game.” Miller said that Oregon State has some talented, physical seniors who are playing in their last home stand. “We don’t want to do anything differently,” Miller said. “We’re going to practice everything the same, because if we take our eyes off of that, we’ll be vulnerable. Oregon State is always difficult [at its home court].”

Roberto Nelson – senior guard – #55
TYLER BAKER/THE DAILY WILDCAT
OREGON STATE senior guard Roberto Nelson tries to find his way through the Wildcat defense during Arizona’s 76-54 win against OSU in McKale Center on Feb. 9. Nelson could be the first Beaver to lead the conference in scoring since Gary Payton in 1990.
– 6-foot-4, 198 pounds – Averaging 20.6 points, 3.7 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game this season Nelson has had more 20-point games this year (16) than he had in his first three seasons combined (15). He is on track to become the first Oregon State player to lead the conference in scoring since former NBA star Gary Payton did in 1990. Nelson has led the Pac-12 in scoring every week this season and needs just 35 points to move into fourth place on Oregon State’s all-time
shooting list. In his last contest against the Wildcats, Nelson scored 10 points and collected four assists, two rebounds and a steal; however, he was limited to 3-for-12 shooting from the field and 0-for-3 from beyond the arc.

FELIX-TERRAZAS WINS PAC-12 GYM HONOR
Despite missing the first 12 games of the season due to a violation of team rules, Moreland leads the team in double-figure rebounding games (10) and is tied for the team lead with five double-doubles. The last time Oregon State played Arizona, Moreland grabbed eight boards and finished the night with four points, two blocks, a steal and an assist.
tarting outfielders Scott Kingery and Zach Gibbons have begun their second years at the UA on a positive note. Things have changed for the two sophomores: They are no longer the youngest players, and they are now expected to be some of the leaders on their team. “From a baseball standpoint, they both look more comfortable,” head coach Andy Lopez said. “They both look like they’re more accustomed to the team here.” Kingery was named the Pac-12 Player of the Week on Feb. 25. “Kingery deserves it,” Lopez said. “His numbers deserve something. He seems to be on base almost all the time, stealing bases and driving in runs. He has had good weekends.” Kingery received the award after a team-best 10 base knocks, hitting .500 (10-for-20), with five RBIs and seven stolen bases in one week. He is now one of the top five players in the Pac-12 Conference with stolen bases. “Last year I struggled a bit, and this year I’m just starting off hot and it feels really good to know that people are seeing that,” Kingery said. “I just feel like my hard work is paying off.” Lopez has taught both outfielders how to improve their offense and given them tips on how to get on base. “Coach tells me I’m a fast guy in the program, so as long as I put the ball in play, I have a good shot of getting on base,” Kingery said. Their improvements have been noticeable, and they have grown from one season to another. “Both of them are bigger and stronger thanks to our strength coach,” Lopez said. “He has done a great job with Gibbons and Kingery. They’re probably a little bit quicker than last year, too.”

A pair of nonconference wins in a double-header for Arizona softball at home on Tuesday night has the team off to its best start since the 2010 season. The Wildcats defeated the Ball State Cardinals 16-2 and 12-3, with both games ending in five innings via the mercy rule. The No. 8 Wildcats (20-1) have now won eight consecutive games by the run rule, a school record. The UA has won 10 games in a row, tying the longest winning streak of the season. In the 12-3 nightcap win, junior catcher Chelsea Goodacre led the way with two home runs and seven runs batted in. “I was just going out there and doing everything I could for my pitcher and for my teammates,” Goodacre said. “It’s a team sport, and we’re just trying to get as many runs as we can.” The Wildcats also got considerable production from the bottom half of the lineup throughout both games. Senior utility Kelsey Rodriguez and sophomore infielder Lauren Young hit fifth and sixth in the batting order and swung the two hottest bats on the day. The duo combined for two home runs and 10 runs batted in. On the heels of being named the Pac-12 Player of the Week for last week, Rodriguez nearly doubled her season stats with her monster performance in the two games. “I’m just trying to do whatever I can for the team,” Rodriguez said. “Just happy I’m getting opportunities.” The first game saw starting pitcher Shelby Babcock struggle

Dirtbags deal Wildcats their fourth straight loss BY rose aly valenzuela The Daily Wildcat
Arizona baseball’s pitching fared better, but it still lost its fourth game in a row on Tuesday night at home. Although Arizona (6-6) lost to Long Beach State 3-2, some improvements helped keep the score close despite the offense still being off. “It was a little bit cleaner, and that’s kind of what I’m shooting for: clean baseball,” head coach Andy Lopez said. The inability to score runs when they are needed is the main issue for Arizona, according to Lopez. “What we’re trying to convey to our guys right now is that you can’t slug it out at Hi Corbett [Field],” Lopez said. “I don’t think we’ve come to the grip with that yet.” Arizona recorded eight hits on the night. Junior Trent Gilbert and freshman Bobby Dalbec led Arizona with two hits each. Lopez said that the issue is that the ball keeps getting hit in the air when hits are needed, which doesn’t allow runners in scoring positions to score. “Our offense got better in the sense that I feel like we’re getting more hits, but at the same time we still have the
same problem with not cashing the runs when they are needed,” Gilbert said. “We’re doing a pretty good job with everything else.” Both Lopez and Gilbert said some players might be trying too hard to get their hits. “I think maybe we just need to relax a little bit more,” Gilbert said, “maybe not think about the runs that need to be cashed, but just treat every at-bat like any other.” Arizona remained scoreless until the bottom of the sixth inning, when junior catcher Riley Moore got a rally started with a triple to right center. Sophomore Zach Gibbons grounded out but was able to allow Moore to score. The offense seemed to get its momentum at that point in the game, but the pop-ups and groundouts continued after another run was scored by the Dirtbags to tie the game 2-2. Long Beach State (5-6) took the 3-2 lead in the top of the ninth inning. Defensively Arizona had four pitching changes, while seven were made in Sunday’s game. Redshirt sophomore Cody Hamlin was the starting pitcher against Long Beach State and pitched three innings, giving up two hits and one run.
“I feel like I definitely could have done a lot better. I shouldn’t have walked the first guy,” Hamlin said. “The little mistakes here and there will definitely cost you.” Senior James Farris, junior Tyler Parmenter, redshirt sophomore Xavier Borde and freshman Bobby Dalbec (0-1) also pitched in the game. Dalbec took the loss after moving from first base to the mound and allowing a run on three hits over 1.2 innings. “Our pitching did very well,” Gilbert said. “They definitely gave us a chance to win.” Arizona will return Wednesday afternoon to try to split the series. The starting pitcher will be junior Tyler Crawford (1-1). The last time Crawford was on the mound was March 1, when he pitched 3.1 innings, giving up three hits and three runs. “If our offense improves a little bit, I’m confident that Tyler will get the job done,” Hamlin said. The first pitch will be at noon, and the game will be streamed live on pac12.com. Carlos Herrera/The Daily Wildcat

reshman Garrett Patrick is the future of Wildcat hockey, but the time is now for senior Steven Sisler as Arizona (17-23-0, 8-8-0 WCHL) heads into its first postseason appearance since 2006. When sophomore walk-on goaltender Dylon Hojnacki was lost for the season to a concussion after the first month of the season, UA head coach Sean Hogan consistently split goalie time between Sisler (910-0) and Patrick (6-10-0). Since the middle of October, if one got the nod Friday, the other was typically a lock to start between the pipes the following night. During the regular season, Sisler played 1,089.53 minutes in 21 games compared to Patrick’s 1,072.27 minutes over 20 appearances. Comparing the two’s goals against average, Patrick’s (3.47) is over a half goal less than Sisler’s (4.02). But don’t let that fool you: GAA is the most overrated goalie statistic in the sport. Both of their save percentages stand at an identical 0.890. Here’s the catch: Sisler had to work much harder for that number, facing more than 100 more shots total (685) than Patrick (583) in only one additional time on the ice. This doesn’t mean Patrick is not qualified to start in the national tournament. For being a college hockey rookie, he showed many flashes of brilliance. His greatest moment thus far in a Wildcats sweater came on Nov. 8 against then-No. 1 Minot State (23-6-0). Patrick saved 34 of 36 shots faced, leading Arizona to a 3-2 victory, its first over a top-ranked team since the start of the American Collegiate Hockey Association in 1992. He also had three shutouts this season; two of them were against ACHA Division II programs. The other was against a newly-inaugurated Division I Colorado (11-19-2, 2-14-0 WCHL) squad, which ended up being the punching bag of the Western Collegiate Hockey League. Still, a college hockey shutout never looks bad on the stat sheet, and certainly doesn’t damage credibility. Even though Patrick wouldn’t be a shabby choice, Sisler deserves the reins going into the tournament. As Hogan continues to add more talent to the program, Arizona will consistently be around in March,

Senior goalie Steven Sisler (9-10-0) led the Wildcats to a road sweep of Illinois last season. The UA will face the No. 18 Illini in the first round of the ACHA tournament on Thursday.
and Patrick’s day will come if he doesn’t make an appearance in Delaware this year. “Sis,” as Hogan calls him, was a solid contributor for his head coach, playing and practicing through a groin injury for most of the season. In his last game at Oceanside Ice Arena against No. 1 ASU (34-2-0, 14-2-0 WCHL) on Feb. 1, Sisler delivered what was arguably the UA’s most heroic performances in the net of all time. Battling through an uneasy stomach and the chills from the flu, he stopped a career-high 52 of 53 shots faced to stun the Sun Devils 2-1 on their senior night, snapping Arizona’s 37-game winless streak to its bitter rival. Sisler was also a key contributor in the Wildcats’ season series sweep of No. 2 Oklahoma. He earned a trio of wins over the Sooners, saving a total 114 of 121 OU shots. Arizona is scheduled to face No. 18 Illinois (20-17-2) in the first round Thursday. The last time the two schools matched up, in October 2012, Sisler started both contests and helped the Wildcats accomplish a road sweep over the Illini. In the second game of the series, he saved 24 of 26 shots against en route to a 3-1 UA victory. Whether it’s Sisler or Patrick who starts, Hogan, as per usual, will keep his choice secret from the public until game day. “We have a tremendous amount of confidence in both guys, so we’ll see,” Hogan said the day Arizona was selected to the tournament.

Miley Cyrus twerks way to Phoenix

TV network’s Adult Swim fun house invades District BY camille Carlin
BY Allison Field

The Daily Wildcat
Twerk queen Miley Cyrus brought the Bangerz Tour to Phoenix this past Thursday night, and she did not disappoint. “You’re at the best party you’re ever going to be at,” she yelled after sliding down a tongue protruding from an image of her own face on the main screen. Every one of the outfits Miley wore magically seemed to turn into a leotard mid-song, and the stage décor was like no other. She sang “FU” to a larger-than-life marionette, rolled around on a massive bed and soared over the audience on a phallic hot dog. Of course, her little person sidekick and her favorite voluminous twerker were in attendance. About mid-show she brought out Matt Peterson, a Phoenix high schooler who had asked Miley to prom on a YouTube video that went viral. Miley said this was her best prom experience, as the last time she went to prom, her date had a bit too much to drink and ended up telling her he was gay. “It’s cool he was gay though,” she said, “because I am a little gay, too, so it’s OK.” Peterson gave her a corsage and Miley stripped him down to his boxers. They shared a slow dance to “Adore You” as a kiss cam panned the audience. Miley made her way to the back of the stadium for a Bob Dylan and Outkast cover. A fan threw a big yellow shirt onto the stage that Miley put on without reading. In large, glittered print the shirt read, “MILEY SIT ON MY FACE.” She thanked the audience for her new shirt and went on to “shake it like a Polaroid picture” to a cover of “Hey Ya.” Even with her sexual new image, she was able to tie her classic hits “Can’t be Tamed” and “Party in the USA” into the show. Each song did, however, contain much more booty shaking and much less clothing than in previous performances. Of course, the chart-topping hits “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball” were saved for the very end of the show. “We Can’t Stop” brought back the lyric lip-syncing cat from the American Music Awards and iPhone flashlight apps swayed to the emotional “Wrecking Ball.” The Bangerz Tour stands as proof that Miley is having fun by not taking herself too seriously and that she’s encouraging others to do the same. Regardless of her newfound sexualized image and provocative stunts, the 21-yearold is a talented vocalist and performer. It looks like Miley’s career can’t and won’t stop anytime soon. — Follow Allison Field @dailywildcat
The television network Adult Swim is descending upon the UA campus on Thursday and Friday with a 40-foot inflatable castle. The event is intended to provide students with both comedy and stress release. Adult Swim has been doing college campus tours for more than seven years, and this year had the idea to incorporate its television series into an interactive experience for students. The castle will be an opportunity for students to take time away from studying and get lost within the inflatable walls. “The inflatable castle is a really incredible, immersive, fun experience,” said Amantha Walden, Adult Swim’s director of events. “It is like Adult Swim is coming to life in the form of a funhouse. Students will be finding themselves inside their television sets with the 15 rooms and three different exits.” Walden went on to discuss several aspects of the event. “It is a free, fun event and a chance for us to talk to our fans and a great way to have some fun,” Walden said. “It is like a funhouse, with moments of being totally grossed out, laughing or being lost.” Walden said the event is only for those 18 and over, as the television network is for a more mature, adult audience. The castle has a total of 15 rooms with three different exits, offering a unique experience for each participant. The event is being sponsored by Ice Breakers Mints and KFC, which will each have its own themed room with free samples and goodies. For Ice Breakers Mint, there will be a “Karaoke Cage” where maze-goers can sing their hearts out to preselected songs and afterwards munch on some of the Ice Breakers Mints to cool down their vocal chords. The KFC-sponsored room, Tippy Tunnel, is a kaleidoscope hallway that

creates a constantly changing view for the students and also showcases the Colonel’s face. After leaving the room, students can document their experience using the “How Do You KFC” photo booth outside of the castle. The other 13 rooms located within the castle are representations of the TV shows aired on Adult Swim. Some of the shows featured include “Aqua Teen Hunger Force”, “Childrens Hospital”, “Loiter Squad”, “Metalocalypse”, “Robot Chicken” and “Squidbillies”.
The inflatable castle will be set up in the District parking lot on Fourth Avenue, between Fifth and Sixth streets. The event is free, but there is ticketing involved to ensure that everyone in line can go through the funhouse. The ticketing will begin at 4 p.m., and the attraction itself will be open from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. on both Thursday and Friday.

Two dynamic writers will recite work at Poetry Center BY Chelsey Wade The Daily Wildcat
Writers Lucy Corin and Susan Steinberg will read from their work at the Poetry Center on Thursday at 7 p.m. in an interplay between poetry and nonfiction. Steinberg, who has written three collections of short stories and received a National Magazine Award, the Pushcart Prize and a United States Artist Fellowship, teaches English at the University of San Francisco.
