UA plans to raise tuition




The UA is considering tuition increases for the next academic year, as additional financial support from the state seems unlikely. The tuition plan the UA is currently working on to present to the Arizona Board of Regents next week includes a 2 percent tuition increase for in-state students and a 5 percent tuition increase for out-of-state students, according to

Andrew Comrie, UA provost and about $207 for in-state tuition Melissa Vito, vice president for senior vice president of Academic and about $1,353 for out-of-state Student Affairs and Enrollment tuition.

Policy for tobacco ban under review



ARTS & LIFE - 12




The UA is looking to join the more than 800 universities nationwide that have tobacco-free campuses. The Student Health Advocacy Committee has been working on a draft for a tobacco-free campus policy for two-and-a-half years, and the plan is now under public review. Stephanie Kha, a biochemistry junior and the director of SHAC, worked on the Tobacco-free University of Arizona Policy, which is an effort to unify existing tobacco policies at the UA and place a campuswide ban on tobacco products. Kha worked with Melissa Vito, senior vice president for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, to write the draft of this policy and revise it several times during summer 2013. The two sponsors of this policy are Vito and Allison Vaillancourt, vice president of Institutional Effectiveness and Human Resources. The policy began an eight-week public review period in February, Kha said, adding the feedback period is beneficial because it helps university policymakers to determine how to address people’s concerns. If additional revisions need to be made after this examination period, the draft will be put up for review again after the revisions are made, Kha said. If the draft does not have any specific changes, the policy will advance toward policy formation. The policy will then be sent to

The ASUA Supreme Court ruled last week that ASUA elected officials can endorse candidates through social media, ending a dispute between the senate and the elections commissioner. The case, ASUA Senate v. Election Commissioner Small, held oral arguments on March 3. Associated Students of the University of Arizona Sen. Michael Mazzella, a communication junior, represented the senate against Marc Small, ASUA elections commissioner and a political science senior. The case was brought to the Supreme Court in response to Small’s interpretation of Elections Code 5-3.11. The code, which had previously prevented ASUA elected officials from endorsing candidates, was changed by the senate in November, according to Mazzella. The code was changed to allow elected officials to endorse candidates, Mazzella said, but officials are required to attend Q&A sessions for the candidates so they are able to make an informed decision. They are also not able to use their title when endorsing candidates. Small interpreted this as meaning officials would be unable to use any social media platforms

ince losing a close friend to meningitis two years ago and almost losing his own life, one UA student is determined to educate people about meningitis and raise money for the cause. Alex Flatley, a general studies junior, took a trip to Campus Health Service just before finals week last May with a 102.6 degree fever and severe vomiting, but was told he had the flu and quickly dismissed. After vomiting non-stop for almost a week, Flatley headed to the Tucson International Airport to fly home for summer vacation. When Flatley arrived home in Palo Alto, Calif., his mother scheduled an appointment for Flatley with their family doctor. But when she tried to feed Flatley a piece of toast, his response was “What is toast?”

Faculty Senate, where the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and the Graduate and Professional Student Council will have the opportunity to present a petition with feedback, Vaillancourt said. Once all the feedback is taken into consideration, the policy will be sent to UA President Ann Weaver Hart, who will decide whether to pass it or not. Kha said that if the policy were to be enacted, enforcement would be a shared responsibility for all of campus. There are already tobacco policies in place at the UA. The Arizona Health Sciences Center created a tobacco ban in 2013, and the UA has a policy banning smoking within 25 feet of any university building, Kha said. Vaillancourt said the policy wouldn’t be strictly enforced by police on campus. “We’re not going to have the smoking police, that’s for sure,” Vaillancourt said. Since the policy would not be enforced through police citations, Kha said most of the financial costs surrounding the policy are related to signage and communication. Kha said she anticipates opposition to the policy from both smokers and nonsmokers, because people might view the policy as legislating morality. However, Kha said, the policy is aimed at creating campuswide awareness about tobacco use and making resources such as Arizona Smokers’ Helpline and nicotine replacement therapy more available. Kha added that everyone at the university — faculty and students alike — would benefit from this policy. “[It] fosters an environment for students to not pick up smoking while on campus,” Kha said. Nathan Falberg, an economics and political science senior, said

this policy could pose a problem to international students who may not understand it. “I was in Beijing, and people smoked everywhere,” Falberg said. “It would be difficult to enforce this for international students.” Falberg said this policy would create constraints for people who like to study on campus and take smoking breaks. David Silva, a civil engineering senior, said he does not favor this policy, and that as a student he feels he should be able to smoke outside of the library during breaks. “I think they’re trying to send the right message,” Silva said, “but it shouldn’t be forced.”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Today is a 7 — Let others help today and tomorrow, especially with a new assignment. Compromise with your partner. Choose romance over righteousness.

Tuition Increases at ua

plan,” Vito said. The cost of “keeping the lights on” at the university rises by more than 2 percent each year, Comrie said. The UA administration presented this plan to UA student leaders Morgan Abraham, president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and an engineering management senior, and Zach Brooks, Graduate and Professional Student Council president and a second language acquisitions graduate student. Abraham said he is a happy with a 2 percent increase for in-state students, but is concerned with the increase for out-of-state students. “The out-of-state proposal on this model is definitely a little higher than we’d like to see,” Abraham said. GPSC has not yet taken a position on these potential increases, according to Brooks. How much the state allocates to the UA is major factor being brought up in the

discussion over tuition rates. In the proposed budget Gov. Jan Brewer released in January, the UA was allotted about 10 percent of the funding requested by the Arizona Board of Regents. The budget has yet to be set, but changes are likely to occur to what Brewer originally proposed as it makes its way through the Legislature, Comrie said. Brooks said that the direction the Legislature takes will have an impact on how much the UA asks for tuition. “So, [the Legislature] could go even lower than the governor, and if they go past a certain point on the low end, that means they have to

raise tuition even higher,” Brooks said. Comrie said he hopes the Legislature will allocate more funding to the UA. “I’m hopeful that we can persuade them that we are a really good investment for the state,” Comrie said. Another topic in the tuition conversation is the possibility of the UA adopting a guaranteed tuition plan. A guaranteed tuition plan would allow students coming into the university to know their tuition rate for the next four years. Abraham said he and Brooks went to the UA administration and pushed for a guaranteed tuition model for students, and the administration was surprised by how

At that moment, Flatley’s mother knew something was wrong, and immediately took him to Stanford Hospital & Clinics. Within 30 minutes of arriving at Stanford Hospital & Clinics, Flatley fell into a coma. After conducting four spinal taps and various other tests, the doctors discovered that Flatley had viral meningitis and encephalitis. The Mayo Clinic website defines meningitis as “an inflammation of the membranes surrounding your brain and spinal cord,” and encephalitis as the “inflammation of the brain” with “viral infections [being] the most common cause of the condition.” Four days after falling into a coma, Flatley woke up. Flatley had no recollection of what had occurred prior to him falling into a coma, and he could not recognize familiar faces — even his mother’s. Two weeks after arriving at Stanford Hospital & Clinics, Flatley was released from the hospital. He was told that he would be bedridden for two to three years. “I want to keep pushing,” Flatley told his mother every day as he attempted to take steps around their home in Palo Alto, Calif. He was making noticeable progress, but a short month after his return, Flatley relapsed and suffered from a grand mal seizure. Flatley once again fell into a coma, but came out of it stronger. Despite his recovery, he will never be able to use his sense of smell again. He also suffers from retrograde amnesia. “A lot of memories from before I got sick, I don’t remember them,” Flatley said. With the summer coming to an end, Flatley’s doctors told his mother that he should not return to school, warning her that the workload and stress could cause more seizures. But Flatley was determined to make a change, and in the fall of 2013 he returned to the UA. Now, he works to raise awareness about a disease that many people know little about. Lee Ann Hamilton, the assistant director of Health Promotion and Preventive Services at Campus Health, urges students to be aware of symptoms of meningitis, and to seek medical attention quickly if you experience typical symptoms. “Any pain in back, neck and head, especially stiffness in the neck, is the most common symptom of meningitis,” Hamilton said. Flatley is working with the Meningitis Foundation of America and Campus Health to educate college students about the symptoms of meningitis. “What I want everyone to know is that it moves so fast,” Flatley said. “The doctors said if I had come in 30 minutes later, I would have had zero chance.” Hamilton explained that students who live in

hard they were advocating for it. Vito said the UA is still looking at different models for tuition and at how guaranteed tuition would affect its strategic plan, Never Settle. Brewer called on the state universities to look at ensuring more predictable and dependable tuition rates in her State of the State address in January. “That’s part of what’s driven us, along with conversations with student leaders, to try to look at a guaranteed plan and respond to her particular request to us,” Vito said. Comrie said the UA is considering NAU’s PLEDGE plan as a possible way to stabilize tuition. The PLEDGE plan guarantees students the same tuition rate for four years. Abraham said he is hopeful that the UA will adopt a guaranteed tuition plan. “I’m very optimistic that in the next couple weeks we’ll hear … that they’re going to push for guaranteed tuition,” Abraham said.

group settings, such as residence halls and greek houses, have a higher chance of contracting meningitis. “It is important to get the vaccine, even though it covers only 70 percent of meningococcal meningitis,” Hamilton said. As an active member of Delta Tau Delta fraternity, Flatley is spearheading a philanthropy event called Delt’s Lion Heart Challenge. The name originated from Flatley’s late father, who always told him to “have the heart of a lion.” The event, taking place on May 3, will encourage students to educate themselves on the symptoms of meningitis while competing in an obstacle course. Flatley designed T-shirts, one specifically for the UA and one to be sold nationally, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Meningitis Foundation of America. In addition, BTO Self Serve Yogurt on Speedway Boulevard will hold a percentage night for the effort on April 30. The store will donate 20 percent of the proceeds from every customer who mentions Delt’s Lion Heart Challenge to the Meningitis Foundation of America. Flatley said his continued efforts will be worth it if he can save at least one person from suffering this disease. “I’m going to tell my story,” Flatley said, “because all the stories about meningitis are negative.”

that presented their title for endorsement of candidates. “It was just two conflicting things, so I thought the first one would outweigh the second one,” Small said. Small said he was against allowing elected officials to endorse candidates at all, but the senate decided to go ahead and make the change. According to Mazzella, Small was invited to attend the meetings where the changes to the code were being discussed, but he declined. Mazzella said Small did not say anything in regards to the change in the code until two weeks ago, when he issued a memo warning elected officials that they were not allowed to use social media to endorse any candidates. “The way that we saw it was an attempt by [Small] to kind of go over the senate’s head and make up his own rules,” Mazzella said. Mazzella said the job of the elections commissioner is to enforce the rules that the senate creates. Small, however, considered his role to include interpreting these rules. Mazzella said the senate was also confused because Small had waited so long after the code was changed to offer his interpretation of it. “It was kind of strange that all of a sudden, out of nowhere, [Small] decided that he wanted to change the code,” Mazzella said. According to Mazzella, the changes that had been made to the code made no mention of social media, so Small had no right to interpret the code in that way. After discussing it with Small without

reaching a conclusion, Mazzella said he decided to take it to the ASUA Supreme Court. The senate and the elections commissioner were each issued a law student to act as their lawyers during the argument. Two days after the argument took place, the Supreme Court issued a decision stating that it was invalidating Small’s memo and ruling in favor of the senate. “[The Supreme Court] gave [elected officials] the right to endorse on social media,” Small said. “It didn’t matter if it had their title or anything. It kind of conflicts in my opinion, but there’s nothing I can do about that.” Mazzella said the decision also set the precedent for potential future arguments, because the Supreme Court ruled that any disputes between what the senate passes and how the elections commissioner interprets it would be decided in favor of the senate. “All of the senate came together on this,” Mazzella said. “We really solidified that the things that we decide in our meetings, the things that we vote on, the reasons why we were elected really do matter.” Morgan Abraham, ASUA president and an engineering management senior, said he understood Small’s interpretation of the code and did not plan on using social media himself to endorse any candidates, but he was not opposed to the decision made by the Supreme Court. “I completely support the Supreme Court’s ruling,” Abraham said. “That’s why we have a Supreme Court, to make the final say.” — Follow Jordan Fowler @JordanFowler7

asua endorsements The Editorial Board elects to comment on who deserves your vote in the ASUA elections


o you hear that? It’s the sound of our frantically typing fingers, energized by hopes that this year will be one in which the Associated Students of the University of Arizona impresses. Each year, the Daily Wildcat editorial board weighs in on which ASUA candidates we think will best represent student interests.

This year, we evaluated candidates by the platforms they laid out on the ASUA website and elsewhere, and by their performances at the debates. ASUA is supposed to represent the student body. Members usually throw a nice Spring Fling and call it a year, but they promise to bring our concerns to the state Legislature,

work to make our tuition steady and oversee the many clubs and organizations on campus. In making these endorsements, we identify who we think will best serve the campus and strive to make tangible differences in the lives of students. If we’re lucky, the difference they make will be so grand, students will actually learn what ASUA means.

taylor ashton President

Taylor Ashton’s platform doesn’t include anything campus-shattering, but that’s actually OK. Fantastical, unrealistic plans are often a warning sign that a candidate has no idea what’s feasible and what’s not. A committee for tuition clarity is a strong idea that will more than likely come to fruition if he’s elected. And if students actually take the time to follow the investigation and care, we could potentially see changes in how our precious money is spent. Then there’s this second part of his plan, where Ashton will apparently ensure the committee’s findings get a full-page spread in some newspaper called the Daily Wildcat … Hey, wait a minute. An investigation into how money is being spent at the university is right up our alley, but we’re an independent newspaper — not an ASUA newsletter. That said, it would be nice to see ASUA take the lead in holding the administration accountable for where our tuition goes once it’s left our pockets. Expanding resources that already exist on campus is another surefire way for Ashton to accomplish his objectives. Adding ASUA and the Wildcat Events Board to the already available calendars on the Arizona Mobile App, broadening access to syllabi before registration and promoting our neglected assets like Smartplanner and TCE — these are all currently halfway realized, and wholly attainable with a push from Ashton. Other ideas, like parking violation allowances, will take some more doing. They sound cool enough, but unless he has Parking and Transportation Services in his pocket, it’s not going to happen overnight. And yes, Ashton still clings to those candidate-favorite buzzwords — collaboration, accountability and diversity — but he’s better than his opponent at delineating how those broad terms can be realistically manifested in a campus setting. Posting office hours complete with walk-ins is an admirable first step Ashton could take to give ASUA a name, a face and a handshake. Lastly, Ashton has confidence, and the resumé to back it up. As Chief of Staff for current ASUA President Morgan Abraham, he’s already met the head honchos at the UA and is clearly comfortable expressing himself on the spot. It’s worth remembering that the next ASUA president will be representing students and student interests in front of the Arizona Board of Regents, President Ann Weaver Hart and even bigger wigs. Ashton may come off as the typical politician at times, but there’s no question he keeps his cool under pressure. Ashton, you’ve got our endorsement, and if you do win, we’ll be calling you now and then to ask what’s up — but don’t think that makes us best friends. We’re the fourth estate, not the third.

jordan allison

daniel douglas

Executive Vice President

Administrative Vice President

Jordan Allison was a Daily Wildcat employee last semester, though she never completed the probationary period. Although her time here may not have left the best taste in our mouths, Allison has a firmer grasp on her platforms than her opponent does. Allison has a solid list of ideas about how to improve club organization by streamlining registration and renewal. She also wants to make the Club Resource Center a more active, engaging space with advocates who have been trained to know what they’re doing. Holding training for club advocates each semester is yet another achievable goal that shows Allison’s done her homework. She’s also passionate about her efforts to retain first-generation students by spreading the word about programs like TRiO. It’s a praiseworthy goal, and as a first-generation student herself, Allison understands how the university community could be doing a better job of reaching out. It all sounds good, but we’d like to see this goal become as fleshed-out as her plans for improving club resources. There is one thing in her plan that makes us cringe: Her goal to define the relationship between Greek Life and ASUA. Yes, there does need to be a definition … but one clarifying where Greek Life ends and ASUA begins. ASUA’s goal should be to better serve the entire university, not just chapters. Ultimately, we do believe Allison is the better candidate for the job, and we were impressed by the thought that went into many of her ideas.

Daniel Douglas really has one thing going for him: the passion of a happy camper. He may have this race easy since he runs unopposed, but Douglas still leaves us wanting more. The politics, philosophy, economics and law sophomore clearly cares about his goal of seeing Bear Down Camp, a preparatory camp for incoming freshmen, expand to two sessions a year. Douglas realizes that with the way the camp is run now, space is becoming limited, and he’s trying to deal with the issue before the camp hits capacity. Between that initiative and his hopes to find a way to eliminate scheduling conflicts between Greek Life and the camp, Douglas exhibits care for future Wildcats — but what about current students? Part two of Douglas’s plan is extending the reach of the ASUA newsletter. Sure, he could showcase the newsletter during orientation, trying to entice freshmen ... or he could just use this cool new thing called a Listserv, which could reach the entire student body. It’s commendable to want to spread the word about our student government with tables on the UA Mall, but it’s also a little disconcerting to think he might not realize the power of the Internet. At the debate, when asked what he would want to focus on outside of his limited platforms, Douglas declared he wants to expand the budgets of Feminists Organized to Resist, Create, and Empower and ASUA Pride Alliance. This is the direction Douglas should take. While focusing on students who just arrived is one of Douglas’ responsibilities, his larger priority should be caring for our already-active minority student populations. It’ll ultimately affect more of our student body.

Senate ellen dunn Dunn’s plan to bring a Farmer’s Market onto campus, and keep it going strong is probably the best-outlined vision of anyone running for any position. Dunn wants to build our relationship with the Tucson community and already knows to look to the farmer’s market by the University of Arizona Medical Center for collaboration and inspiration. Throw in plans to engage student organizations like Students for Sustainability and follow-through options for after the market is established, and Dunn has a viable plan that we’d be excited to see realized. Plus, she has an angle that we can get behind: She’s big on sustainability, which is already a huge initiative for campus bureaucrats, and she seems pretty straightforward about what exactly we can expect from her.

If you vote: You can cast your “ballot” on the ASUA site, until 8 pm. tonight.

elena gold Gold has the advantage of being an incumbent, meaning she now has a better understanding of how the senate works. All her platforms are both appealing to students and reasonable. Rec classes for academic credit? Neat — a great way to keep students simultaneously active and on track to graduate. Alternative winter breaks? Being able to travel around the country and make a difference twice a year accentuates the university’s commitment to service. Teacher Course Evaluations that are more like Rate My Professor? We’ve wanted this forever. And Ashton’s plan to hand out syllabi early would only be aided by a site that told students what the workload was really like and how to realistically manage their expectations, independent of a list of curated assignments on stark white paper.

Brooke serack We like that Serack wants to reach out to students and let them know what ASUA’s doing and how. An ASUA Senate-specific newsletter could do a lot of good, and her idea of monthly dinners for students with the movers and shakers of ASUA would offer that extra level of accessibility we’ve come to want. Diversity programs could play a key role in helping minority students feel safe and comfortable on campus, and targeting Greek Life might lower the frequency of racist or sexist ragers from weekly to — dare we dream — bi-monthly. On the other hand, though it would be awesome to know how much we could expect to get for our bookstore sell-backs, we don’t believe the University is pure-intentioned enough to agree to a student-only system for book exchange. At least, not without a 2.5 percent convenience fee. It would just be too many pennies down the drain. But to finish on a positive, who doesn’t love the idea of Food Truck Thursdays? More business for Tucson vendors, less Panda Express for us. Yummy.

a final note A worryingly high percentage of candidates don’t even have their platforms posted on the ASUA site, just their headshots. Kenneth Cox, Jack Emery, Robert Nelson, Jake Roark, Joey Steigerwald, Nicholas Welchert, Joshua Wexler … they’re handsome enough fellas, but voters need a little more to go on, and all that white space doesn’t exactly scream “accountability.” — Endorsements for ASUA candidates are determined by the Daily Wildcat editorial board.

Police Beat IT’S A GREAT BIG Oh crap UNIVERSE OUT THERE. BY Jordan Fowler

Last day to Jump Start your Job Search! #UALastChanceFair

For ALL UA Students LAST DAY!

The Daily Wildcat

A UA student was taken to University of Arizona Medical Center for extreme intoxication on Feb. 28. A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to a call and arrived at Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall at 1 a.m. to find the student already being cared for by University Emergency Medical Services. The student had soiled herself and was covered in her own feces, but when UEMS attempted to evaluate her she began resisting treatment by swinging her arms towards them. The officer noticed that her eyes were bloodshot and watery. The student was taken to UAMC. When the officer arrived three hours later to follow up with the student, he found her asleep. He was told by a nurse that the student’s blood had tested positive for alcohol. When the officer returned again two hours later, he found the student still asleep. He was told by the nurse that the student had been sedated upon her arrival, because she was trying to kick the medical staff. A follow up was requested to arrest the student for a minor in possession of alcohol in body.

A non-UA affiliated woman was arrested for two outstanding TPD warrants on Feb. 28. Two UAPD officers were dispatched to a sorority house on Cherry Avenue and Second Street in response to a potentially intoxicated woman knocking on the door of the house. When the officers approached her, she sat down on a bench. She had no ID with her, and when asked what her name was, provided two different names. The woman wouldn’t stop talking and kept repeating that she wanted to go to “emerge.� She provided her birth date and admitted that she did have warrants for her arrest. She said she wanted to get a license so she could take care of the warrants. She also provided the officers with her social security number. After running her social security number, the officers found the woman had two outstanding Tucson Police Department warrants for criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct. The officers verified that the descriptors on the warrants matched the woman’s descriptors and received confirmation of the TPD warrants. The woman was then placed under arrest and transported to Pima County Jail.

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS For teams from the Pac-12, March Madness kicks off today with the start of the Pac12 Men’s Basketball Tournament at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas; all 12 teams will compete for the Pac-12’s automatic bid to the NCAA tournament BASKETBALL

March madness guide for everyone


BYJAMES KELLEY The Daily Wildcat

Arizona men’s basketball has its best team in years, so it has acquired lots of new fans. It’s OK if you need a primer on March Madness, just make sure to study this rather than your midterms material. What is the Pac-12 Tournament? What is the Pac-12 Championship? Didn’t Arizona already win that? Yes, last week actually. This week the Wildcats are going for the Pac-12 tournament championship. Winning that punches their ticket to the NCAA tournament. Of course, they’re already in the NCAA tournament as a very high seed.


So what’s the point of the conference tournaments? Don’t complain, it’s basketball during the day on weekdays. PHOTO COURTESY OF BRANDON CHOE/DAILY BRUIN

PAC12 PLAYER of the year Nick Johnson dunks the ball during Arizona’s 79-75 win against UCLA at Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles on Jan. 9. The Wildcats enter the Pac-12 tournament as the No. 1 seed, and the Bruins are the No. 2 seed.



The Daily Wildcat




o. 1 Arizona (28-3, 15-3 Pac-12)

The No. 3 Wildcats come into the Pac-12 Tournament with many accolades. The tournament’s No. 1 seed has the conference’s Coach of the Year in Sean Miller, the conference’s Freshman of the Year with Aaron Gordon and the conference’s overall Player of the Year in Nick Johnson. Arizona is the Daily Wildcat’s pick to win the tournament. Best Player: guard Nick Johnson, 16.1 points per game The Daily Wildcat’s predication of the odds of winning: 2-1

o. 2 UCLA (23-8, 12-6)

The most talented team in the tournament, the Bruins underachieved this season. UCLA scored at a high rate but struggled to play defense. After clinching the No. 2 seed in the Pac-12 tournament, the Bruins didn’t show up against an undermatched Washington State squad and lost 73-55. UCLA will lose in the semi-finals to ASU. Best Player: guard/forward Kyle Anderson, 14.9 ppg Odds: 10-1


o. 3 ASU (21-10, 10-8)

Point guard Jahii Carson may be the most NBA-ready player on the Sun Devils, but the addition of Jermaine Marshall has freed up the scoring. ASU is already a shoe-in for the NCAA tournament, but if it

wants to make a serious run in the Pac-12 Tournament its is going to need center Jordan Bachynski to continue to be a monster in the paint. Best Player: point guard Jahii Carson, 18.9 ppg Odds: 4-1


o. 4 California (19-12, 10-8)

One of the conference’s most overrated teams, the Golden Bears took advantage of a injured Arizona team to upset the Wildcats in Berkeley, Calif. Cal lost to a horrific USC team on Jan. 22 and lost at home to a Utah team that had only won one road game prior to that.

What’s the bubble? It is the precarious position that teams on the borderline of making the NCAA tournament are in. What’s bracketology? It is the study of brackets, as in NCAA tournament brackets. Bracketologists like me don’t study the Pac-12 tournament brackets (it’s based on standings). The NCAA tournament is selected by a committee. Bracketology is basically science for jocks, sans the lab coats. What’s a mid-major? It’s a team that’s not from one of the big, powerful conferences. Think of a directional school (like Northern Arizona University) or a “state” school not named after a state (like Appalachian State). Mid-majors are not supposed to beat big schools — after all, who would go to Eastern Michigan over Michigan? But every year they do. Last year Wichita State made the Final Four. What’s a Cinderella? Cinderella is a fairy tale about a girl who started from the bottom and now she’s here. Cinderellas are underdogs who achieve more than they are supposed to.

PAC-12, 7



Plenty of action in Las Vegas starting at 3:30 p.m. PST and a Pac-12 Pep Rally in the MGM District beginning at 4:55 p.m. PST. If the Wildcats have reached the semi-finals of the tournament, they will play at 6 p.m. PST.

Berger emerges for Arizona

Historic season for Cats


The Daily Wildcat

Arizona baseball coach Andy Lopez has said “defense wins games” time and time again. But going into Tuesday’s game, Lopez has seen his team commit more errors (19-17) and compile a worse fielding percentage (.972) than its opponents (.974). Junior catcher Jordan Berger has represented a defensive bright spot this season. Going into Tuesday’s game, Berger had only two errors in nine games played and seven starts. “I just never stop working,” Berger said. “The main thing I’ve worked on is defense, and as a catcher, that’s the most important thing. ... This year, I really embraced working on defense and it’s paid off a lot.” Berger said that as a catcher, it’s crucial to get every strike for your pitcher, and that he studied film of himself to get better. “Hitters, when they are down in the count, it’s much tougher to get base hits and puts a lot of pressure on them when we get ahead in the count,” Berger said. “I’ve really taken a big responsibility to get strikes for my guys and have put a lot of work into getting better at it.” He said that sometimes, it just takes a slight rotation of the wrist to bring a low strike up in the zone. “I really work on trying to extend and twist my wrist to the left in order to frame the pitch. We want to get that low strike for our guys,” Berger said. “Our pitchers are taught to throw low strikes, so [framing] is definitely something I’ve been working on.” CARLOS HERRERA/THE DAILY WILDCAT Over his first two years with the team, JUNIOR CATCHER Jordan Berger is tagged out at second base during the Wildcat’s matchup with Kent State on Sunday at Berger started in just two games behind Hi Corbett Field.

The Buffaloes need to do well in order to secure a bid to the NCAA tournament, but can make a deep run. They play a less talented Trojan team in the first round.

Wildcat hockey got two King Kong-sized gorillas off its back in the 2013-14 season. For eight years, the program only got to watch the postseason from home and lost 37 straight games its rival from up north. But this season Arizona (17-24-0, 8-8-0 WCHL) returned to the national tournament and finally defeated ASU.


Previously an independent program, Arizona joined the Western Collegiate Hockey League this year. This season ASU, Oklahoma, Central Oklahoma, Colorado and Colorado State became part of the WCHL as well. Wildcats head coach Sean Hogan also welcomed his second recruiting class. Featuring nine freshmen, it was his largest at the UA. Tommy Bennett was the lone walk-on of the season. Once again Hogan created one of the toughest schedules in the league. Of the 40 games the Wildcats played, 25 were against teams invited to last season’s national tournament. In the Preseason National Coaches’ poll, Arizona began its 2013-14 campaign as the No. 19 team in the league. Right before the opening games against NAU, Hogan named his senior left wing Ansel Ivens-Anderson the new captain to succeed Brian Slugocki. Shortly after, the rankings would be determined by computer calculations, and at the end of October the Wildcats had made it to No. 10. The last time the UA had been ranked that high was in the


o. 6 Stanford (19-11, 108)

The Cardinal had a surprisingly good season that included a couple of upset victories. Forward Dwight Powell was named to the conference’s first team All-Conference team. Best Player: guard Chasson Randle, 18.8 ppg Odds: 9-2


o. 7 Oregon (22-8, 10-8)

No one is hotter than the Ducks right now. And no one has had more of a roller coaster season. After winning its first 13 games, Oregon proceeded to drop eight of its next 10, only to finish the season on a seven-game winning streak. The final stretch of the season included a upset victory at home over then No. 3 Arizona. Best Player: guard Joseph

Young, 18.2 ppg Odds: 25-1


o. 8 Utah (20-10, 9-9)

The Utes s h o w e d much growth from 201213. Their one major blemish was their 2-8 road record. They also have yet to play a game on a neutral court, like the Pac-12 tournament is. Best Player: guard Delon Wright, 16. 1 ppg Odds: 45-1


o. 9 Washington (17-14, 9-9)

It’s been a while since the Wildcats beat Washington 71-62 on Jan. 4. But if Wa s h i n g t o n gets past Utah in its first round game, it will meet up with Arizona. However, UW doesn’t have the size or talent in the post to compete with Utah, and


especially the UA. Best Player: guard C.J. Wilcox, 18.5 ppg Odds: 50-1


o. 10 Oregon State (1614, 8-10)

The Beavers won’t be going to the NCAA tournament without winning the Pac-12 tournament. And that probably w o n ’ t h a p p e n . Despite having the conference’s leading scorer on its roster in Roberto Nelson, OSU doesn’t have the depth. Best Player: point guard Roberto Nelson, 20. 6 ppg Odds: 75-1


o. 11 Washington State (10-20, 3-15)

Though it was also a while a g o , Arizona fans still p r o b a b l y remember holding the Cougars to 25 total points on Jan. 2. Washington State’s

inability to score was a theme all season long. The Cougars scored 62.4 ppg, one of the lowest in the country (336). Best Player: guard DaVonte Lacy, 19.1 ppg Odds: 100-1


o. 12 USC (11-20, 2-16)

Not much needs to be said about the Trojans. They were the only team in the Pac-12 that didn’t have a single player named to the c o n f e r e n c e ’s honors list or honorable mention list. There’s lots of work to be done in south central Los Angeles, and it starts with bringing in the right athletes. Best Player: Guard J.T. Terrell, 10.0 ppg Odds: 90-1

Also after earning a trio of assists in the national tournament loss to Illinois, Murmes picked up his 200th career point with Arizona. He is now one of 13 to do so for the program.

2006-07 season, where it would eventually finish out of the top 25. Hogan represented USA Hockey as an assistant coach at the Winter World University Games in Trentino, Italy. While he was gone, Hogan’s lead assistant coach, Dave Dougall, took the reins of the team. Just a couple days after New Years Day, Arizona hosted York University of the elite Canadian Interuniversity Sport League. The CIS is the Canada’s equivalent of the NCAA Division I, and York featured several players with prior professional experience and a former NHL draft pick. Arizona finished the regular season at No. 15, but was the only team in the ACHA with victories against two top-ranked squads. The defending national champion, Minot State, fell 3-2 to the Wildcats on Nov. 8. Under three months later, the Wildcats ruined the Sun Devils’ senior night with a 2-1 win in Tempe, Ariz. In the first round of the ACHA Division I National Championships in Newark, Del., Arizona was upset 4-3 by No. 18 Illinois. The game was a thriller at the end, as the Wildcats cut the deficit to a goal with under a minute

Rookie of the year

While forwards Robbie Wilkinson and Alex O’Dea both had excellent rookie seasons offensively, Arizona’s rookie of the year is goalie Garrett Patrick. Patrick (6-10) shared the bulk of playing time between the pipes with senior Steven Sisler and impressed throughout the year with a save percentage of .894 and a GAA of 3.47. He also posted three shutouts and was in net for the win over then-No. 1 Minot State, saving 34 of 36 shots.

How about the Elite 8 and the Sweet 16? That would be eight and 16.

Murmes topped all of Arizona’s offensive statistics and was its MVP. He led the Wildcats in points (62), goals (24), assists (38), power-play goals (nine) and game-winning goals (three). It was also the third consecutive year Murmes was looking down on the rest of his teammates in points.

‘The Stick of Truth’ aims to please BY Torsten Ward The Daily Wildcat

There’s no denying that the TV show “South Park” has been a huge success. Ever since its initial release in the summer of 1997, it has quickly become a household name because of its edgy, inappropriate content, and it has remained a staple for Comedy Central throughout the years. Just like every great blockbuster, the time has come for “South Park” to relinquish its identity as just a TV show and delve into the world of video games with “South Park: The Stick of Truth”. There is no shortage of content in “The Stick of Truth,” but does it work in a video game format while still being as fun as the show? Here’s the breakdown.

The gameplay

customization possible within “The Stick of Truth” had me drooling from the start. I actually had a civilized, professional discussion with my roommate concerning whether or not I should use an electrified anal probe or flaming snowballs to try tackling the hobo behind Kenny’s house. The thing that’s so great about “The Stick of Truth” is that it never tries to be something it isn’t. It also doesn’t sacrifice gameplay for comedy. I’ll admit, some of the gags are overdone, and the fart jokes literally never stop — but I never forgot that I was ultimately playing a strategic RPG set in the world of everyone’s favorite fourth grade delinquents.

The content

Please, do not pick up this game At its core, “South Park: The Stick if you are easily offended or in any of Truth” is a turn-based RPG much way squeamish. Several gameplay like “Pokémon” or “Final Fantasy.” sequences have been banned in The combat system is compiled in the Australian, European, African a way that doesn’t get too repetitive and Middle Eastern versions of the and keeps you on your toes. However, game for content so crude it had between each me nervous of the game’s laughing from four playable the start. I Game Info: classes (Fighter, simultaneously Mage, Thief and wanted to turn Format: PlayStation 3, Jew), not much the volume Xbox 360, PC is different save down so my Publisher: Ubisoft a few exclusive neighbors Developer: Obsidian weapons and couldn’t hear Entertainment your base the (sometimes Release Date: March 4 clothing. Your literal) shit abilities vary going down on Price: $59.99 from class my screen, but to class, but also wanted to ultimately turn it up just these skills to catch every aren’t all that unique. I had more inserted reference. This really is fun testing the different abilities of the ultimate fan game. Getting to my teammates than I did using my fight ManBearPig and finding the own characters’ powers. But the Sword of a Thousand Truths were sheer amount of weapon and armor real treats. Anyone who likes both

“South Park” and RPGs should stop what they’re doing now and go buy “The Stick of Truth.” However, if anal probing, Nazi zombie fetuses and Canada aren’t your cup of tea: Bail, bail, bail.

The problems As well done as the rest of the game is, “The Stick of Truth” is not without its flaws. The phone user interface — used for customizing your character and sorting through quests — was, at times, hard to use and cluttered. While the pseudoFacebook integration was humorous, I literally had to un-friend Al Gore on Facebook because he wouldn’t shut up. Frame rate issues and archaic loading screens plagued my experience from start to finish even though the game was made with the exact same style of cutout animation as the show. You’d think that in a day and age where games like “The Last of Us, don’t need loading screens that 2D cutout animation wouldn’t either. But hey, it wasn’t all that bad. The real issue is the game’s lack of replay value and a missed opportunity for cooperative play. The only incentive to play through the campaign again is to get the story-specific trophies and achievements you missed the first time around. No joke is as funny the second time you hear it, and the same can be said about “The Stick of Truth.” Maybe jumping into an online party with friends would remedy the issue, but I suppose we’ll never know.

The verdict “South Park: The Stick of Truth” aims to please. Sticking to its roots, the game is not only a sidesplitting spoof of video game culture, it’s also a gold mine of pop-culture references and nods to the show’s past. Never

Courtesy of Ubisoft Entertainment

Fan-favorite character Butters from the popular Comedy Central show “South Park” fights off a horde of rival enemy elves in Ubisoft’s newest title, “South Park: The Stick of Truth.” The game was released on March 4.

before have I used an armor-piercing dildo to slay my enemies alongside the Frog King while in another man’s colon — and I can’t say I’d like to ever do it again. But that’s what makes “South Park” what it is. Shock humor aside, this game was a blast to play. Ignoring buffering issues and a lack of in-depth, classspecific customization, “The Stick of Truth” is a well-made RPG with an

environment never before seen in the modern gaming world. However, don’t expect this to be your go-to game of the year. One or two playthroughs and even hardcore fans will be letting this gather dust at the back of their collections. — Follow Torsten Ward @torstenward

KAMP Radio’s SXSW music fest playlist and youthful carelessness. Sounds Like: Bass Drum of Death and The Orwells Listen: “Stand In The Sand”

BY Shannon Kurlander The Daily Wildcat

KAMP Student Radio is currently in food truck/music heaven: Austin, Texas, during SXSW. Here are the SXSW Music 2014 artists you need to know, and make sure to check out interviews with these artists coming to throughout the week.

6. Drowners

Drowners remind people that mainstream pop-rock is not always a bad thing. Their new self-entitled album is an easy listen, packed with short catchy anthems. Your standard Brit-pop never sounded so good. Sounds Like: Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes and Nightmare of You Listen: “A Button On Your Blouse”

1. Pure Bathing Culture

It is hard to describe Pure Bathing Culture without using the words mystifying and gorgeous. The Portland duo’s sound draws inspiration from cold shores and starry skies, leaving listeners in a calming trance. Sounds Like: Beach House and Melody’s Echo Chamber Listen: “Ivory Coast”


Seattle foursome TacocaT proves there is no topic it can’t approach with a light heart and a surf rock melody. Its fun full-length album NVM debuted last month with songs about periods, quinceañeras and snow days. Sounds Like: La Sera, Colleen Green and The Lovely Bad Things Listen: “Crimson Wave”

7. Angel Olsen 3. Nothing

The band Nothing is receiving everything when it comes to hype. Its new album Guilty of Everything is loud yet complaisant, marketing on the beauty of shoegaze-fuzz. Sounds Like: My Bloody Valentine, Whirr and Deafheaven Listen: “Dig”

4. Blouse

This Portland dream-pop band excels in making silky tracks with a detached

quality. Its 2011 self-entitled album offers ’80s synth pop sounds and its 2013 release Imperium is a hazy swirl of more traditional instrumentation. Sounds Like: Trailer Trash Tracys and Chromatics Listen: “No Shelter”

5. Twin Peaks

Her recent release Burn Your Fire For No Witness is a hauntingly evocative masterpiece. There is heartbreak in Olsen’s voice that makes each word more compelling than the next.
