Film series spotlights outdoor adventure
anff Film Festival, one of the largest mountain festivals in the world, will appear at Fox Tucson Theatre this weekend. The festival will showcase footage of mountain-based adrenaline sports, adventure, travel and environments around the world. The 50 best mountain films in the festival were shown in November in Banff, Canada, at a nine-day long event. Those films were narrowed down to selected nights for the Banff Film Festival’s road tour, which spans 40 countries. Adventures that will be shown include climbing, biking, snowboarding, wingsuit flying, ski jumping and paddling. For the Tucson presentation of the mountain festival, selectors chose films based on factors such as range of adventure, geographic location and environmental consciousness. This is the 35th year of the festival, which originally began as a tour across three cities in Canada. Banff organizers aim to connect mountain filmmakers with larger audiences.
Mountains to the west, Santa Catalina Mountains in the north, Santa Rita Mountains in the south and the Tortolita Mountains to the northwest. “Tucson has an amazing outdoor community,” Vincent said. “Seeing that brought to film through the festival is a real treat. It inspires people to go out and explore their own adventure. You leave the evening just wanting to go out in nature and do something amazing.” The Banff Centre partners with National Geographic and The North Face to show the diverse range of activities in the mountains. — Landon Vincent, “We’re all used to seeing marketing manager for Summit Hut our own landscapes.

Action film is entertaining but average
t may not be of the caliber of some of Liam Neeson’s recent offerings, but “Non-Stop” is nevertheless decently entertaining. Neeson reprises his role as a sympathetic everyman with a particular set of skills and the initials “B.M.” In “Taken” and “Taken 2” (and, hopefully, the third installment, which will inevitably be called ‘Tak3n’ or ‘Taken 3D’), he had the generic-sounding name Bryan Mills. In “Non-Stop,” Neeson finds himself playing Bill Marks, an air marshal who has the inexplicable quirk of becoming alarmingly anxious when a plane takes off. One would think an air marshal wouldn’t get the jitters. As we will come to see, Marks is a damaged man. On a direct flight from New York to London, he receives a text message over his encrypted network that says if $150 million is not wired to a bank account, someone on board the plane will die every 20 minutes. As the minutes go by, tensions increase and the film takes on the intrigue of a whodunit. Is it Jen (Julianne Moore), the woman who initially switched seats at the beginning of the flight and just so happened to end up in the seat next to Marks? Or is it Nancy (Michelle Dockery of “Downton Abbey”), the only stewardess who knows Bill is an air marshal? Or is it Gwen (new Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o), a new stewardess who was placed on the flight at the last second? Or is it all of them? Or none? “Non-Stop” has two elements that make the film work. Actually, “work” may be too strong a word; “function” is more appropriate. The first is the mystery of who is behind these cell phone messages. Director Jaume Collet-Serra, who also directed the 2011 Neeson action-thriller “Unknown,” does a great job of raising the audience’s suspicions about someone, lowering them and then bringing them back up again. There are twists and turns, and everyone’s in question up until the end. Neeson is the second thing the movie
has in its favor; he’s a likeable and bankable action star despite being in his 60s. His characters are always unassuming and gentle yet not afraid to take on the role of “total badass” when push comes to shove. When he must rise to the occasion, earnestness and desperation inhabit Neeson’s every move. Of course, an action film of this caliber is going to have its ham-handed moments, especially if anything even remotely close to patriotism is brought up. The villain reveals their dastardly plan, and, in our post-9/11 world, the plan has something to do with proving that our advanced security measures don’t make us any safer, or how the America of today isn’t the America they want to be a part of. In order to save the country, they have to destroy it. This is as thin and clichéd a veneer of philosophy and character motivation that you’ll find. To the film’s credit, though, Neeson’s Marks responds to the villain revealing their plan by facetiously saying it would have been better to just hand out pamphlets. Not to mention, there is an conspicuously Middle Eastern character on board the plane. What a suspicious man! He must be up to no good. But, hark! As it happens, he’s actually a doctor, and not a terrorist after all! At the film’s climax, he even shares a tender moment with a retired NYPD officer. See, we can all get along if Liam Neeson is there to guide us. “Non-Stop” may very well be forgotten in a couple of month’s time. However, in his career renaissance as an action hero, Liam Neeson will always be the guy to root for and the guy to watch.

Holocaust remembered through arts
hen pianist and School of Music professor Paula Fan traveled to China to teach music to children, she met an elderly gentleman named Herbert Zipper. Zipper’s unwavering positive attitude and ever-present smile left a lasting impression on Fan. She didn’t know it at the time, but Zipper was a Holocaust survivor. Decades later, and after Zipper’s death in 1997, Fan is still asking herself how a man like Zipper remained so optimistic after enduring such tragedy. It’s questions like these that Fan and her associates at the Confluencenter Center for Creative Inquiry hope to answer at their “Creative Collaborations” presentation this Saturday at 11 a.m. As part of an ongoing series of presentations that mix and match different disciplines across the UA, “Creative Collaborations” examines various topics of interest to Fan and her scholastic partners. This month, Fan explores the experience of the Holocaust through the perspective of children in a presentation called “The Choiceless Choice.” “The question to me is, ‘Did the children see things differently than the adults?’” Fan said. Consisting of classical music, poetry and historical lectures, the presentation will take

place in the lower level of the UofA Bookstore. Fan will begin by playing a cycle of songs on a 1901 Steinway piano. The songs are lyrical adaptations of testimonies from actual children of the Holocaust. Sections
from “The Diary of Anne Frank” and “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” will serve as the inspiration for Fan’s repertoire. Fan said the idea for the presentation partly stems from her memories of Zipper,
who was an Austrian musician sent to the Dachau concentration camp in 1938. While taken prisoner, Zipper secretly put together an orchestra of musicians to play concerts in an abandoned latrine. He and his fellow prisoners would craft instruments together from pieces of wood and scrap metal. “Herbert’s sustaining lifeline was his commitment to music,” Fan said. Zipper’s story of survival would later be profiled in the Oscar-nominated documentary “Never Give Up.” As part of her research for the presentation, Fan met with a group of Holocaust survivors at the Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Southern Arizona to see if any of them chose music or art as coping mechanisms in their fight for survival in the way as Zipper had. “Nobody thought about music,” one of the survivors said. “We didn’t have the choice.” Fan says that she noticed the survivors were curious about her professional pianist career. While these men and women spoke of losing their childhoods to the Holocaust, none seemed to have lost their appreciation for beautiful things, Fan said. Like her friend Zipper, Fan observes, Holocaust survivors tend to make a conscious choice

Rather than following a straight-line adaptation of one of them, Gurwin settled in the middle in order to create a unique setting. “The 1955 movie is very MGM Technicolor,” Gurwin said. “We decided not to go that route. The Hugh Jackman revival in 1999 was much grittier. We’ve kind of split the difference here. It has the joy and color of a Technicolor show, but some of the grit in the text and scenery and staging of a John Wayne movie.

to embrace life. Susan Crane of the department of history will join Fan on Saturday in a discussion about the choices a person makes in a suppressing environment, such as the Holocaust. Crane specializes in the historical consciousness of modern Germany and teaches classes focused on how the Holocaust is remembered by different people. “These presentations enhance the collaborative atmosphere at the UA,” said Yvonne Ervin, the director of development at the Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry. Ervin has overseen Fan as she has conducted these collaborations for the past year.
The atmosphere of these “Creative Collaborations” is meant to invoke the casualness of a saloon-type setting, Ervin said. Spectators are seated less than 5 feet away from Fan as she plays piano, and so the expected crowd of about 75-80 people will undoubtedly feel intimate with the material. The event is free and open to the public. A short post-show discussion hosted by Fan and Crane will take place over a brown bag lunch with visitors from the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. “We’re trying to open up the university to the Tucson community,” Ervin said. “We want to encourage people to come on campus.”

The season of sunshine and shaved legs
here’s no doubt that spring is a beautiful season at any college campus. The shorts are coming out of winter storage, spring break is looming and midterms are almost over. However, springtime at Arizona totally trumps the weather at any other college campus in the nation. Here’s why:
Studying outside is a feasible option. Do you see kids in New York reading outside? No, because they would be wearing parkas and mittens. There are many places to study while immersing yourself in the gorgeous weather.
The weather is pure bliss. It’s the type of gorgeous, heavenly sunshine that you see in movies. Tucson in early spring is the Disney Princess of all weather. It’s cheery, sweet and makes you want to twirl to class and sing to small animals.
Campus gets so much more beautiful in the spring. I didn’t think that was even possible, but it is. The luscious, green grass on the UA Mall makes the brick buildings stand out, and the red and white petunias are pouring over their flower beds.
The citrus trees are blooming. Dreamy sigh. Suddenly, rushing to class turns into a breezy stroll through a cascade of tiny white flowers that smell like heaven. We already have a nice tan because we’ve been wearing warm weather clothes for a month, unlike our friends on the East Coast. Wait, what polar vortex? I wasn’t aware of such tragic events; I’ve been too busy basking in the sunshine since mid-February.

Least favorite drink to make? Elise: I hate when people come in here with those ridiculous names, like, “Can I have a tic-tac?” I asked, “What’s a tic-tac?” And it’s literally vodka and orange juice, maybe with a splash of grenadine. “So, you want a screwdriver in a shot glass?” Kimberly: Hand grenades. You’re dropping glass in glass. It’s bound to break, and then what? We have a lawsuit on our hands? What’s your signature drink? Kimberly: Bombs. Not your typical “dropin” bomb. If you order anything with Red Bull and vodka, and you think you’re going to drop it, that’s not happening here. Another signature drink is the Bam. It’s blueberry vodka, Red Bull and a splash of cranberry. Elise: You have two or three of those and you’re done. Kimberly: Everyone knows when they come here that they’re going to black out because they’ve had at least four bombs. Most memorable customer? Elise: This guy Gio. He’s been 86’d from The Buffet. He was sitting here the other day, and he’s convinced that he’s part of this important, legendary rock band. Kimberly: We usually let him come in, order a drink and we let him stay for about a drink — and then we’re like, “You have to go.” Elise: He finished his drink and he kept on having me pet the callouses on his fingers. You bartenders put up with so much stuff. Elise: Some people have different levels of tolerance. I will tolerate a lot before I kick somebody out, just because I feel so awkward doing it.
Kimberly: I don’t tolerate shit anymore. I’m like, “What? No. You’re done.” As a customer, what can I do to piss you off? Kimberly: [Not knowing] what you want. Don’t send me on a wild goose chase four separate times. Elise: By the time you’re 21, you should know. Kimberly: Maybe we’re such alcoholics we just sit here all day and we know what we want, and we expect other people to know what they want.
All You Can Eat Sushi $21.95
On the flip side, what can I do to make your job as easy as possible? Elise: I like it when people ask what I recommend because I know what I like here. “What’s your signature drink? We’re from out of town.” That’s always fun. Kind of help them out. Do you get a lot of college students? Kimberly: We do. Thursday nights used to be completely insane. We used to be one of the only bars on Fourth Avenue besides O’Malley’s and The Hut, and Maloney’s had a patio. Bison’s pretty original. It has been open almost 20 years. Elise: We definitely get that late crowd all the time. It’s so random, like whenever it dies down and you start to clean up on a Saturday night. One o’clock, everybody’s in here. Kimberly: I love the “Hey, Barkeep!” column. Elise: We read it all the time. We read [the Daily Wildcat] every day.

‘God’ grants booze and bras

The Meet Rack features walls covered with raunchy photos, clotheslines brimming with ‘donated’ bras and the promise of ‘something to offend everyone’
“T REBECCA MARIE SASNETT/THE DAILY WILDCAT
THE MEET RACK has a wide rage of humorous, and in some cases, highly offensive decor ations as well as unapologetic. LORRIANA O’ITANLAN (right) and Carlos Aguirrebarrena (left) enjoy a drink at Meet Rack on Wednesday.
eenage Mutant Vaginal Infection” and the “Butt Fuck” are a few of lewdly titled cocktails on the drink menu at the Meet Rack. Upon ordering the “Cum Stain,” a milk-based beverage with brandy inside of a pitcher and coconut frosting on the outside, designed to look just like what the name suggests, I was approached by a woman who asked, “Can I lick your Cum Stain?” She promptly stuck her tongue out and ran it the length of the pitcher from bottom to top, then thanked me and walked away. “We let things happen here,” bartender K.K. Day said. The face of the Meet Rack is Jim Anderson, a character as unique as the bar and its patrons. Though he says he’s never introduced himself to anyone as anything other than Jim, he is prominently known as “God.” “My mother used to say, ‘God damn it, you and shit head come here,’” Anderson said. “My brother was ‘Shit Head,’ I was ‘God Damn It,’ so I just shortened it to ‘God.’” Anderson is quite literally the face of the Meet Rack. To date, 2,527 people have been branded with Anderson’s face on their body. “We used to brand hamburgers. My cousin came in the bar one day and said, ‘Jim, you need one of those on you.’ He heated it up and he branded me,” Anderson said. “I came out and I said, ‘Look what I got! Buck branded me!’ And they said, ‘We want one!’ So five people got one right then, and that’s how it started.” With the brand comes a lifetime discount on drinks, food and T-shirts. Anderson, who has owned six different bars over the past 40 years, in Tucson, Syracuse, New York, Las Vegas and Mazatlán, Mexico, is officially a “consultant” at this bar. The Meet Rack has existed in its current incarnation at 210 W. Drachman St. since 1997. The bar and liquor license are in Anderson’s daughter’s name due to a decades-old political grudge that prohibits Anderson from owning the venue himself, according to Day. The bar’s main is dimly lit but homey. Christmas tree lights hang year-round from a beam on the ceiling, helping to illuminate a wooden bar with an enclosed rectangular perimeter in the center of the floor. The base of the bar is covered with signatures and messages from past customers. A lone video poker machine, left over from the dawn of virtual gaming, sits on one of the long sides of the rectangle. Toward the back of the room is a single pool table. Memorabilia, trinkets, posters, signs and thousands of photographs cover every square inch of the walls inside. About 20 photos show customers performing suspensions outside on the patio, hanging from cords attached to their bodies via hooks through their piercings. Day listed the human suspensions as some of the most memorable events she’s seen at the bar, which is known for attracting out-of-the-ordinary behavior. “The suspension hangings are crazy to see,” Day said. “They do it right outside, and those hooks going into people is a trip.”
Inside, next to the door to the patio, is a wooden plaque bearing Anderson’s likeness, decorated with sobriety coins that have been traded in at the bar by no-longer-recovering alcoholics. The coins displayed range from six months to 26 years sober. “They don’t call us the ‘13th step’ for nothing,” said David Burleigh, who has been bartending at the Meet Rack for four years. Anderson is particularly fond of a name tag attached to the plaque: It belonged to a student who first stopped at the Meet Rack after being discharged from an $80,000 rehab program his parents had forced upon him. “We got him drunk, we got him laid and we got him a T-shirt,” Anderson said. Further along the wall is the decoration Anderson is most proud of: a framed 1974 letter from the superintendent of the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control, informing Anderson that he will no longer be permitted to walk around his bar, or any other, in the nude. The restrooms are at the rear of the bar. The women’s room has a condom dispenser that does not actually produce contraceptives when the knob is turned, but does set off an alarm that is inaudible within the restroom and loud and clear in the bar room. The tradition is for customers to berate the woman with derogatory shouts when she emerges. “There’s something to offend everyone here,” Anderson said. Along the back wall are hundreds more pictures, many of which feature Anderson with friends and partially nude women. One section is devoted to celebrities Anderson has met at his bars over the years: Jackie Chan, Joe Theismann, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Rush Limbaugh are just a few who grace the walls. From the ceiling hang clotheslines draped with hundreds of bras and panties — previous visitors’ contributions to the decor. “Everything on the walls I’ve been privy to over the years,” Anderson said. “It’s my customers, my employees and everything else that I like. If I didn’t like something on the wall, I’d just take it off.” The room to the right of the entryway is probably what the bar is most famous for. Urban legends may call the room a sex dungeon or bondage chamber, but its official title is the “duty hut.” It’s a small room with the windows barred on the inside that contains an assortment of sex toys and machines. A modified gynecologist’s table, which seems to have more restrictive straps and harnesses than needed, sits in the center of the room. In a corner against the ceiling is a human-sized cage. Mounted on one wall is some type of rotating dildo machine next to a spinning wheel designed to carry a person, so that they may be turned upside down or to any angle. “Never kiss a woman above the waist … unless she’s standing on her head” is one of the essential rules of the duty hut, said
Anderson. It would be easy to write off the Meet Rack as dive bar with a perverted gimmick, but it’s much more. Past the dirty drink menu, the rotating dildos and beyond the intentional crudeness, the Meet Rack is a safe haven. It’s a retreat for people who may not float in the mainstream. Anderson rejects the idea that the bar is sexthemed. “[There is] no theme,” Anderson said. “This bar is a personality bar. It’s nothing but that.” Day also elaborated on the Meet Rack’s hospitality. “People come in here and we don’t just give them a drink and walk away,” Day said. “It’s like ‘Cheers.’ We know every person’s name who comes into this bar. We take the time to talk to people, and it’s not — K.K. Day, like that everywhere.” bartender Her claim is evidenced even in the spelling of the bar’s name. Anderson echoed Day’s sentiment. “It’s the reason I own one bar and not 10, ’cause I can’t spread myself thin like that,” he said. “That’s the difference. There’s somebody here who cares.” A bearded regular who went only by the name “2” played chess at the bar against himself one Monday night. “If you’ve ever found yourself in the ghetto of Tucson,” 2 said, referring to the area around the Meet Rack, “and you’re looking for answers, you’re in the wrong fucking place. However, when you’re not looking for answers, you fucking find ’em.” 2’s message, though cryptic, is telling. Although Anderson says that there’s something in his bar to offend everyone, it may be just the opposite. Whether it’s someone in greek looking to let loose after midterms, a regular in their natural element or a visitor who has come to witness a taboo spectacle, the Meet Rack might just have something to appreciate for everyone.

faune” by French symbolist poet Stéphane Mallarmé, written in 1876. Mallarmé’s poem describes a faun who, alone in the forest, is awoken by passing nymphs and, despite attempts to pursue them, ultimately falls back into a dreamfilled slumber. Debussy’s musical rendition of the poem helped create a lasting element of modernity in classical music.
“Debussy’s ‘Prelude to “The Afternoon of a Faun”’ is a work that ushers in the modern in classic music in 1895,” Cockrell said. “The composer creates a magical and evocative musical atmosphere.”

Red-hot Ducks host Wildcats Say hello is ninth with 74.3). The 2014 Wildcats could become the first UA squad to lead the conference in scoring defense since Arizona joined the league in 1978. The mark of 58.5 is the Wildcats’ best since holding foes to 55.3 points per game in 1950-51. The 2014 statistics and their Pac-12 rankings are through the March 5 games.
JAMES KELLEY College basketball fans are often puzzled by Oregon’s unique court, but the Ducks themselves have been just as much of an enigma this season. On Saturday, No. 3 Arizona men’s basketball (28-2, 15-2 Pac-12 Conference) faces UO in Eugene, Ore., to close out the regular season at 2 p.m. MST on CBS. The Ducks (21-8, 9-8) have won six games in a row, but that comes after a five-game losing streak in January. Oregon almost beat Arizona in Tucson, but after losing at ASU last month, it dropped to 3-8 in the Pac-12. The Ducks’ win streak, especially their 85-78 win over fellow borderline team ASU on Tuesday, looks to have them on the right side of the bubble, but a win over Arizona could clinch them a spot in the Field of 68. In their latest bracket projections, CBS Sports has the Ducks as a nine seed in the NCAA tournament and ESPN and USA Today have Oregon as a 10th seed. Arizona’s a No. 1 seed in all of those projections. With only the Pac-12 tournament left until the Big Dance, the Wildcats are expected to lock up a No. 1 seed with a win over the Ducks, if they haven’t already. The Ducks are 15-3 at home. Last season in Eugene, the Ducks snapped Arizona’s 14game win streak to open the season. Arizona is 0-1 all-time in Matthew Knight Arena and 3-2 in its last five games at UO.
Who to watch:
Joseph Young –junior guard –#3 – 6-foot-2, 185 pounds “Mighty Joe Young” is fourth in the Pac-12 in scoring, with 18.6 per game. That is 0.1 points behind the two players tied for second and 2.2 points behind first place, Roberto Nelson of Oregon State. Young, who had 14 points, led the Ducks in scoring in the Tucson game despite missing time due to an injury.

FRESHMAN ELLIOTT PITTS (24) and UO sophomore Elgin Cook (23) try to get a rebound in Arizona’s 67-65 win against Oregon on Feb. 7. The two teams will face off again on Saturday. Cook leads the Ducks in shooting with a percentage of .553.

to sand volleyball, Arizona TYLER KECKEISEN The UA’s newest athletic team, sand volleyball, will debut this weekend by hosting the two–day Arizona Invitational. The Wildcats will begin their inaugural season at 2 p.m. Friday against Arizona Christian. The Arizona Sand Volleyball Courts are at Jimenez Field, on the corner of Enke Drive and Campbell Avenue, near McKale Center. Admission is free and fans are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets, as there are no bleacher seats. Arizona’s 20th varsity sport features 13 players, nine of whom were members of the indoor team in the fall. “I think our team has been meshing very well,” said Madi Kingdon, who was named to the All-Pac 12 team last season. “All of us have been coming out and practicing hard almost every day. We are looking forward to starting the season, and I think we are all in a good mindset now.” On Saturday, Arizona plays Grand Canyon at 10 a.m. and ASU at 4 p.m. Arizona head coach Steve Walker said he has been very pleased with the progress the Wildcats have made. “The team has been meeting my daily expectations of coming in, being willing to learn, and going hard every single day to improve,” Walker said. Junior Jane Croson , who finished second on the indoor team with 300 kills, said the wind can be a factor moving outdoors.

flores steps up Junior Allison Flores shines for No. 18 gymnastics with career highs after senior teammates go down with injuries Matt Wall With injuries plaguing No. 18 Arizona gymnastics, the Gymcats knew somebody needed to step up and fill in their places. Junior Allison Flores was ready to fill that void. “Being an upperclassman has definitely put me in a leadership role,” Flores said. “I think a lot of the upperclassmen have really been stepping up and realizing that we are the future of this program.” After senior leaders Jordan Williams and Barbara Donaldson went down with injuries, head coach Bill Ryden said Flores has stepped in. “She has a great work ethic and is a very fiery and intense competitor,” Ryden said. “As a coach, she makes you feel very confident because if she misses, it won’t be for lack of effort or lack of focus.” Other Gymcats have been impressed too, not only with her on-the-court performance, but also off of the court. “I think her performance and personality is just absolutely special and unique,” freshman Selynna Felix-Terrazas said. “In every way possible, she is nice and works very hard and I’m really honored to be a part of the same team.” This season, Flores has hit her career best in every single event. Thus far, she has scored a 9.800 on vault, a 9.900 on uneven bars, a 9.850
on balance beam, a 9.900 on floor and a 39.350 all-around. “She is a great gymnast and actually struggled at the beginning of this year,” Ryden said. “She had certain goals and had to sort of come to terms with the fact of what she needed to do to get to her goal, and she has done it.” Recently, Flores has been competing in the all-around, starting with the meet against then-No. 4 Utah and the injury to Williams. Last week against then-No. 9 UCLA, Flores tied two career highs in floor and in bars. Even as a top gymnast, Flores still knows that there is always room for improvement. “I’m not where I want to be, but I think with every meet it gets better,” Flores said. “Hopefully, toward the postseason I can continue to accomplish some of my goals.” — Bill Ryden, The Gymcats head coach might need another quality performance from Flores to beat No. 15 Oregon State this Sunday. “That girl loves to compete and is going to bring her best effort every single time she is out there,” Ryden said. “For us to compete with them, we will have to continue doing what we are doing and build off of last weekend.”
“That girl loves to compete and is going to bring her best effort every single time she is out there.”

JUNIOR Allison Flores performs her floor exercise routine against UCLA on Saturday in McKale Center. The Gymcats lost to the Bruins 197.500-196.250, and Flores finished third in the all-around with a 38.925. However, Flores earned a career high on the bars (9.900) and the floor exercise (9.900).

Ronni Lewis (left), Madi Kingdon, Madison Witt and McKenna Witt are all members of the new sand volleyball team. The first tournament will be held this weekend. The Wildcats play Arizona Christian at 2 p.m. on Friday and Grand Canyon at 10 a.m., and ASU at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
“Talking will be key for the games,” Croson said. “You have to really communicate with your partner, since it’s just you and her. You also need to really focus on moving your feet and not getting trapped in the sand.” Last week, Arizona’s RedBlue Exhibition was canceled due to the weather, and the ribbon cutting ceremony of the Arizona Sand Volleyball Courts was moved to today at 1:30 p.m. Walker said the Wildcats’ best offense right now is being very efficient in the serve–
receive game. In sand volleyball, the players compete in two-person teams. Walker said some players find it awkward moving from indoor to outdoor. “I would say maybe from an attacking standpoint, being a little off balance can give the [opposing] defense a bad read on what you are doing,” Walker said. “That is something that can translate fairly well, but something that we don’t necessarily teach and preach out here.”

Arizona men’s basketball at Oregon They’re two of the hottest teams in the Pac-12, but A r i z o n a’s smothering defense will slow down the Ducks’ potent offense. Plus, Oregon still doesn’t play defense. Arizona will pull away late to win. Arizona 78, Oregon 65
North Carolina at Duke Mike Krzyzewski has some real advantages with his forwards, despite having a name that sounds like it’s being pronounced backwards. However, I look for the Heels to keep the momentum of a 12-game winning streak and defeat Duke on its own turf. UNC 68, Duke 64 Kentucky at Florida Kentucky seems to be on the skids as of late, with its über-hyped lineup of “oneand-done” players showing that just suiting up for the (other) Wildcats does not transform you into Michael Kidd-Gilchrist or Anthony Davis. Florida’s rolling, so Florida wins. Florida 74, Kentucky 67
North Carolina at Duke Duke lost a stunner to Wake Forest on Wednesday, but head coach Mike Krzyzewski will make sure the Blue Devils have the right mindset. Plus, they’re seeking revenge for their loss to North Carolina last month. But UNC hasn’t lost since falling to UVA on Jan. 20. But its last three victories have not been that impressive. Duke 72, North Carolina 68 Kentucky at Florida Kentucky’s not-so-fab five of starting freshmen still have no idea how to play with each other. Florida is the hottest team in basketball right now. It is an easy pick: Florida wins by at least 20.

Goodacre and redshirt junior shortstop Kellie Fox lead the team in home runs and runs batted in, but aren’t even the hottest hitters on the team.

The Arizona baseball team returns to play this weekend, and will try to end its five-game losing streak. The Wildcats will host the Hi Corbett Classic, which begins Friday and ends on Sunday. Arizona (6-7) will face Mississippi State (11-4) in its first game at 7 p.m. Friday The matchup will be the second game of the classic, after Mississippi faces UC Santa Barbara (7-1) at 2 p.m. Mississippi State will arrive at Arizona with a seven-game winning streak, two of those games being shutouts against Eastern Illinois and South Alabama. The probable starting pitcher for Mississippi State will be junior right-hander Brandon Woodruff (1-1). The Wildcats were swept by Long Beach State on Wednesday, and head coach Andy Lopez said he would start fixing problems during the one day of practice the team had before facing Mississippi State. “Our competitiveness needs to get to a higher level [and] obviously our efficiency at the plate,” Lopez said. He said the team is not only struggling offensively when it comes to leaving men on scoring positions, but also defensively. “We’ll start getting some things addressed, worked out [and] reestablish some standards … reestablish some things that I have always felt are important in any program of coaching,” Lopez said.
CARLOS HERRERA/THE DAILY WILDCAT
SENIOR PITCHER JAMES FARRIS (36) was a relief pitcher during Arizona’s 3-2 fall to Long Beach State on Tuesday. The Wildcats will turn to their ace to try and end their losing streak.
Arizona’s bullpen had a difficult time finding the strike zone on Wednesday. “We’ve had some defensive lapses,” Lopez said. Friday’s starting pitcher will be senior James Farris (2-1). Farris pitched three innings during Tuesday’s matchup against the Dirtbags, allowing zero runs and zero hits with two strikeouts. Arizona will play four games in three days. The Wildcats will also face UC Santa Barbara. The Gauchos have a six-game winning streak, and have won seven out of its eight games. UCSB’s away record is 3-1. Lopez said he wished his team had more time to prepare for the
weekend, but that every single minute of practice on Thursday would be used. Blaming himself for the losses, he said he will get better and the team will get better. “We will get better; I’ll fix it,” Lopez said. “I look forward to every challenge. I’m not a guy [who’s] been used to getting his brains beat out. I’ve been very lucky in my coaching life.” On Saturday, the Wildcats play the Gauchos at 7 p.m. and then again on Sunday at noon, followed by a game with the Bulldogs at 5 p.m. — Follow Rose Aly Valenzuela @RoseAlyVal
