Students struggle with post-grad debt ALISON DORF Arizona Daily Wildcat
As student enrollment and tuition costs continue to rise, more students are graduating with the burden of student loan debt. Despite the increases, the UA does little to educate students about budgeting or paying back student loans, leaving many to face their financial struggles alone. “It really comes down to funding,” said Jennifer Miller, a senior program coordinator for the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid. The vast majority of financial aid that the UA receives comes from the federal government, Miller said. If the federal

government does not implement any kind of additional programs to help students with their debt post-graduation, the responsibility falls on the university. “The University of Arizona, just like all other institutions right now across the states, are doing the best that they can with limited resources,” Miller said. Over the last five years, student loans have made up the largest type and source of financial aid for the Arizona University System, with the amount increasing by 90 percent, according to the Arizona Board of Regents’ Student Financial Aid Report for fiscal year 2012. According to the same report, the average undergraduate debt has increased by 26 percent, from $17,600 to $22,200, while the
average graduate debt has increased by 40 percent, from $34,300 to $48,000. Depending on their financial circumstances, some students may face more debt than others.
Faces of student debt
Lauren Garner, a retailing and consumer science senior, estimated that she will owe more than $100,000 upon graduation, including subsidized, unsubsidized and bank loans. Garner said she feels stressed about her debt, but that her goal is to have a job or an internship by the time she graduates.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announced Tuesday that she has appointed Valerie Hanna, a political science sophomore, as the new student regent. If approved by the state Senate, Hanna would begin her term on the Arizona Board of Regents on July 1. She would serve her first year as a non-voting member and her second year as a voting member of the board. Hanna is set to take the place of current student regent Tyler Bowyer, who will complete his two-year term on June 30.

QUOTE TO NOTE
What made you decide to be a student regent? Hanna: The position really caught my eye about a year ago when I attended my first Arizona Board of Regents meeting. I remember sitting in the room while they were discussing these big ideas and just kind of knowing right then and there that I wanted to be a part of it. They were discussing things that affected me and my peers; they make such important decisions that affect students, so I knew in whatever capacity I could, that I wanted to be involved with ABOR.

Five UA students will be the first to graduate through a UA project targeted at helping students with intellectual disabilities. The UA and the Tucson Unified School District teamed up to create Project Focusing Opportunities with Community and University Support to give students with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to make their college dreams a reality. The five students graduating are Ani King, Reina Koussa, Alexis Trevizo, Matthew Wall and Heidilynn Frontroth. The core of the program is geared toward helping students with intellectual disabilities develop self-reliance and become as employable as possible, according to Dan Perino, the TUSD liaison for Project FOCUS. “[Project FOCUS students’ graduating] is phenomenal. It is a wonderful celebration; the families are so excited — they had never foreseen such a wonderful opportunity to graduate from the University of Arizona,” said Stephanie MacFarland, program director for Project FOCUS. “Our families of this first five that are graduating, they were wonderful; they were supportive, positive,
ready to take the risk, and they are so proud of their son or daughter in this program.” Students in TUSD with intellectual disabilities are eligible to apply to the program, Perino said. Students must also have a desire to be on campus and take classes as well as to find a job after they have completed the program. The curriculum for the students is tailored to the individual, said Phyllis Brodsky, program coordinator for Project FOCUS. Students are required to take a service learning class, and from there they take classes they are interested in. Students are also required to have internships related to their interests while in the program. “Students are students,” MacFarland said. “Students of Project FOCUS are community members of this university as anyone is, and [Project FOCUS] can offer them the opportunity to learn academically as well in life opportunities that all students have here in the university.” Matthew Fairbanks is finishing up his first year with the program after learning about Project FOCUS as a student at Pima Community College. This semester Fairbanks is taking nine credits, with classes in sociology, anthropology and physical education, and

“I would say so because it would be really informational. I tend to blow through money.” — Charlie Aaronson, pre-business freshman
“I would definitely be interested in that, but it depends how long I would have to take it, because obviously people wouldn’t want to spend a lot of time doing that. I feel like it’s definitely something people would be interested in doing. Since it’s the first time that people rely on themselves instead of their parents, they probably have to learn how to manage their money.” — Ian O’Heir, pre-business freshman
“I would say yes. I’m a business major, and Eller offers workshops and things like that that other clubs put on to manage your finances. I think that if the U of A as a whole put that on for other colleges, it would be great. Because we’re in Eller, we have that advantage, but other students on campus don’t really know about it, so I think that’d be good.” — Celi Garcia, pre-business junior
App lets med students explore heart outside lab Monica Contreras Arizona Daily Wildcat
A new app released by the UA College of Medicine is changing the way medical students study the human heart. The Heart Anatomy Explorer I application, which is available on the iPad and Mac as well as Windows computers, was developed by Mark Nelson, a professor of pathology, and Maria Helen Czuzak, an assistant specialist and anatomical instructor who works in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine. Nelson and Czuzak were looking to provide students with a better way to learn about the heart’s anatomical structure. Budget limitations, especially on corpses available for lab dissections, created challenges for instructors like Czuzak, who saw technology like iPad applications as the next tool to bring into the classroom. Using the app, students can rotate a 3D image of the heart, allowing them to see the organ from many angles, both in and out of the chest. “Our goal was to figure out a way to give them [students] a teaching tool that worked with modern technology,” Nelson said. “Many times in lab dissections with specimens we find that it is antiquated, and they don’t capture the details necessary to learn its [heart] real anatomy.” Czuzak said the app has also made her lessons a “better and easier” experience. The app is not meant to replace laboratory work, but rather serves as a teaching aid to prepare students for lessons in the laboratory. It is available for students to preview or review material outside of class. First-year medical students Katherine Nielsen and Elise Vo both said they have benefited from the app by using it as a study guide. “Textbooks only show flat images, which makes it harder to tell how deep and back the cavities of the heart are,” Vo said. “We also get different types of cadavers where the heart and arteries have different
deciding what to major in. However, Project FOCUS is not just about academics. The program is also aimed at giving students the ability to experience college life, according to Alison Burnette, lead instructor for campus life with Project FOCUS. Burnette said her mission is to really “enhance their social life.” “Project FOCUS is a good place for me to do homework and hang out with some friends, hang out with peer mentors and work hard and study hard for my homework and upcoming tests and exams,” Fairbanks said. “So it is a good place for people with disabilities to be here, and the only reason I came here is to help, have Project FOCUS help me to get college experience.”

shades of color from the textbook. This app makes everything universal. It was like going from black-andwhite TV to high definition.” Since the first model of Heart Anatomy Explorer has received positive feedback, Nelson and Czuzak said they plan to build on the project and make improvements. Changes would include adding images of hearts damaged by disease and an interactive encyclopedia that would make the app easier for students in different areas of study to use. “This app represents what can be done to overcome learning curves when working with a team,” Nelson said. “It’s all about finding the right pieces to innovate instruction … and it’s time we start embracing technology like this.”

Career Days fair promotes employment opportunities Rachel McCluskey Arizona Daily Wildcat
An increase in the number of companies at the UA Spring Career Days fair and a new hashtag students can use to tweet about the event make up the latest effort from UA Career Services to increase student turnout and involvement. Students are able to reap the benefits of 25 more companies than last year recruiting at the fair Tuesday and today. This is the first year Career Services has seen such a jump in companies participating, according to Eileen McGarry, director of Career Services. The number of tables occupied by companies has increased to almost 200, added Susan Miller-Pinhey, special events manager for Career Services. This year students are also able to share their experiences at the career fair with the use of the hashtag #LastChanceFair. “It’s kind of cool, and we would love to have students go in and tweet photos on Instagram or whatever,” Miller-Pinhey said. “The more energy we can put into that, the better.” To inform students about new opportunities with new companies, Career Services also added a “New to the U” list, which is available on the Career Services website. Some students said they recognized the changes in the career fair this semester. “I actually did notice [the new companies in] this career fair, so I think that really helps,” said Sellena Urias, a mechanical engineering junior. Urias has attended two or three career fairs in the past. “The Industry Expo had the really big companies like Raytheon, but this one had companies that I’ve never heard of before.” Ravi Garg, an aerospace engineering senior, said he doesn’t find career fairs very useful because engineering jobs usually have online applications. However, the fact that at a career fair he can learn about many available positions — rather than giving someone his resume and talking to them to get a job — is a plus, he said. Garg also added that he noticed newer companies looking for employees. “A lot of the smaller companies that no one really

goes to actually have good positions available, and it’s actually a lot less competition than the big companies like Boeing,” Garg said. McGarry said there was more good news for students because, due to an “uptick in the economy,” employers are looking to hire more students. “Now we’re hearing, ‘We’re expanding; we’re doubling it; we’re going from 10 to 20,’” McGarry said. “That’s encouraging news for students.” Freeport-McMoRan recruiter Rebecca Collins said that the company, a leader in the copper industry, is experiencing a growth spurt. “Our internships have grown over the last two years,” Collins said. “Last year there was 233, and this year we currently had 272 internships.” Today is the last day for students to seek employment opportunities at the fair. “The lines [of students], we’d like to see more,” MillerPinhey said. “Tell them we’d like them to come.”
just engaging students in what goes on, on the board. I want to serve the students well and I believe the best way for me to do that is to hear from them. I have a few different ideas I’d love to initiate and just make sure I’m actively seeking the student voice and that I’m not a regent that’s behind closed doors and who no one really knows. I’m really excited just to get students involved.

“I think that’s my biggest worry right now — being in so much debt,” Garner said. “Yes, I have a degree, but if I don’t have a job, I don’t have a way of paying it off.” Garner is currently paying out-ofstate tuition and funds her education on her own. After attending classes at the UA, she decided to switch her major; as a result, she had to take out more loans and stay in school an extra year. Garner said that other students facing large amounts of debt should learn to budget wisely. “I always buy things when they are on sale,” Garner said. “I pay attention when I go to the grocery store … Even things from, like, walking to school or finding people to get rides [from] … It all adds up.” Eric Rosenthal, a business sophomore, estimated that he will be in approximately $60,000 of debt upon graduation. Like Garner, Rosenthal is also an outof-state student who funds his own education. He said he chose to come to the UA because he felt it was the best fit. Although he is facing a larger-than-average amount of debt, he said he is not worried yet. “It’s there, but it doesn’t affect me in any way until I have to pay it back,” Rosenthal said. Rosenthal plans to start his own business and said he feels confident he will be able to pay the debt back. “I do put away some money every month … I’ve been building that since I was like 16 years old,” Rosenthal said. “I’m trying to keep saving … so that I have some money when I do graduate.” However, not all students are able to save while attending school. Miller said the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid gives students the best aid package it can, including grants and scholarships from the UA, as well as any kinds of grants students are eligible for at the federal or state level.
Providing students with assistance in finances
A new financial literacy program is in the works that would teach students how to budget better and avoid taking out too many loans, according to Miller. However, the structure of the program is still being created. Anything with startup costs has been placed on the back burner, she added. “Every single person that works in the financial aid office has some
form of student debt, either from their undergraduate studies or their graduate studies,” Miller said. “We all understand where students are coming from. We’re in the same boat.” Joel Torres, a senator for the Associated Students of the University of Arizona who also works for the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid as a customer service team lead, said he hears of students struggling to figure out how to pay for college on a daily basis. Recently, Torres introduced a new financial aid workshop to help students learn how to apply for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid in a timely manner. “[Running for the senate,] I couldn’t promise more money. I couldn’t promise … to try to get more scholarships,” Torres said. “But what I could promise was my knowledge in how to teach students how to promptly go about applying for the FAFSA … so they can see how much … federal money they’re eligible for.” A program that does help some students avoid debt is the Arizona Assurance Scholars Program, which aims to enable low-income Arizona residents to attend a university they wouldn’t have been able to afford otherwise, according to Arezu Corella, assistant director at the Office of Academic Success and Achievement. Students who qualify are provided money for tuition, fees, housing, food and books through scholarships, grants and a workstudy program or job component, where part of their funding comes from having a job, Corella said. Students with financial obligations other than the essential expenses may take out some loans, but their debt will still be less than the national average. However, the program does not offer any assistance for students trying to pay their loans back after graduation. “We’re definitely available to help them with figuring out how to manage their financial aid … and how they can budget their money while they’re in college,” Corella said. “We don’t offer specifically … workshops or things like that. It’s actually something we want to develop for the future.” As of now, the program offers assistance on an individual basis. “We know tuition will continue to go up. It’s not likely that it will ever go down,” Miller said. “If federal programs aren’t going to meet the needs of families anymore, the UA is doing the best that we can to pick up the slack.”

ASU ‘law residency’ just way to boost rankings Stephanie zawada Arizona Daily Wildcat
ave law degree, will work for food. That pretty much sums up the current job market for law school graduates. In response, Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor School of Law is launching the ASU Alumni Law Group, a nonprofit teaching law firm for post-law school graduates that will be modeled after medical residency programs. It looks like ASU is making an effort, but you’d think it could do a better job redesigning its law school system to work with the 21st century. After all, law school application numbers are dropping, classes are shrinking and more and more law graduates are wondering what More and they’re going more law to do with their graduates debt. are “There’s definitely a real wondering what they’re fear [among said going to do students],” Dana Dobbins, a with their UA philosophy, debt. politics, economics and law junior, about the prospect of unemployment after graduating law school. The ASU Alumni Law Group, like similar start-ups around the nation, will only employ 30 law graduates. In spite of an average debt of $101,560 for graduating law students in 2012, the firm is offering services for only $125 per hour, half the going rate charged by private sector counterparts. The wages are nothing to brag about, but it’s better than working as a contract writer to the tune of $25 per hour or for free in a volunteer federal law position. However, with today’s oversaturated job market, the move is more likely an attempt to attract students to the law school. “The statistical advantage might convince more undergraduates to apply to ASU,” said Robert W. Berry, UA Philosophy, Politics, Economics & Law Club president. As students struggle to find employment after graduation, law schools are reporting increasingly lower graduate employment numbers. “All law schools inflate admissions statistics by recruiting students with high LSAT scores and GPAs to get better rankings,” added Berry, “but never has a school provided its own graduates temporary jobs to climb the rankings.” That’s precisely what these clinics will do: give desperate graduates a temporary job while boosting law school statistics. “It seems disingenuous to cover up the reality of the situation … [that] no one is hiring new lawyers,” Berry said. So yes, the ASU Alumni Law Group is an innovation in the law school system, but it’s hardly for the benefit of law students. If you still plan to attend law school, stock up on microwave noodles before you go.

“I’m not poor: I’m just no longer living in luxury” By Kali Swenson College students from supportive backgrounds inhabit a weird limbo between being resourceless and utterly surrounded by resources. At moments, it may seem like we have nothing, but in actuality many of us have the luxury of safety nets holding us up. The feeling of being impoverished derives more from realizing personal responsibility for perhaps the first time, and understandably struggling with it, than from any form of actual poverty. Luckily for many of us at the UW, our backgrounds and positions as students allow us a lot of leeway as we work toward selfsufficiency. Though sometimes it feels like we’re floundering, most of us have a support system to help keep us afloat. The very act of being a student at the UW is a mark of privilege we often forget.
“bMail: Berkeley’s B-minus idea” By Chris Jay Hoofnagle We have to be smarter about the perverse incentives vendors may have. Google has strong incentives that run counter to the enlightenment values embedded in the university’s mission because each quarter, it is advertisers, not users, that write Google a check. Google makes design decisions to maximize tracking and sharing of data with advertisers, even where effective, privacyfriendly alternatives exist. As the expiration date of the systemwide Google contract approaches in June 2015, we should rethink how we have entrusted our email and documents to a data-mining company. As an email provider, Google appears to be free, but we may find that we end up paying for it in other ways. The Daily Californian University of California, Berkeley
“Soda ban intrudes on personal freedom” By Sarah Cueva A man interviewed by CNN on the streets of New York could not have summed it up any better: “I don’t care how much soda people drink — there are bigger issues in this city than people drinking sugar … I mean, look around us. Isn’t there more that our mayor can concentrate on than sugar?” That the average citizen can recognize the flaws of such efforts by [New York City Mayor Michael] Bloomberg provides hope that the court will uphold its reversal of the ban. At the end of the day, the ban would bring nothing other than a dangerous expansion of government power while de-emphasizing the need for people to make smart decisions for themselves.

Time for Generation Rx to find treatment beyond pills O
ur generation has come to be known as Generation Rx, a label stemming from our pill-popping tendencies. I won’t go on a rant about the use of Ecstasy or Acid at parties or recreational prescription drug abuse. I’ll leave it to Brother Dean Saxton IV to condemn that #YOLO mentality, because the Rx label is about more than our partying habits. From antidepressants to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder medication to sleep aids, we’re a generation that wants a pill for every ache, pain and bother.

Police Beat MAXWELL J. MANGOLD Arizona Daily Wildcat
Man loses finger in lab accident
After accidentally amputating a finger and severely damaging another, a UA researcher received assistance from the University of Arizona Police Department and paramedics in the UA Agricultural Research Center at 2:06 p.m. on March 15. The injury happened after the researcher became distracted and his right cotton glove and fingers were pulled into a meat tenderizer. When the man removed his hand from the machine, his right ring finger was missing. UAPD officers interviewed a technician who had been working at another tenderizer nearby. She said she had heard the man scream and witnessed his hand being pulled into the machine, and saw “severe damage to his fingers, surrounded by an abundance of blood” after he removed his hand, according to the police report. The man’s finger was collected, iced and given to paramedics. The scene was then photographed and a UA Risk Management Services representative went to the scene. The injured researcher was taken to the University of Arizona Medical Center.
Wrong place, wrong time
A UA employee reported a man who “aggressively approached” her outside Pima Residence Hall to UAPD at 5 p.m. on March 14. In a phone call, the woman told UAPD that the man blocked her path as they walked toward each other on Highland Avenue, even as she stepped from side to side, attempting to get past him. The man then asked what time it was, to which the woman responded, “Five o’clock.” The man then hit the woman on her shoulder with the back of his hand and asked if it was 4:45 p.m. or 5 p.m. She wasn’t injured, but the hit was strong enough that she felt it, the woman said. She then repeated her answer, which seemed to agitate the man. He asked for her name, but she didn’t tell him. The woman then got around the man and kept walking. She didn’t want to pursue criminal charges, but did want the incident documented.

A non-UA affiliated man was arrested for first-degree failure to appear and was taken into the UAPD station for questioning at 5 p.m. on March 16. As the suspect was driven to the Pima County Jail, an officer took inventory of the man’s 2008 Cadillac STS before it was towed. During the inspection, the officer found a 3-inch long, clear pipe in the car’s center console that contained four small crystal rocks weighing 0.3 grams. The pipe was placed into evidence and an Arizona Department of Public Safety Scientific Examination form was completed to have the crystal rocks analyzed. Tucson Wrecker then towed the vehicle.

YA novel has fresh take on life, death, love Story of 16-year-old cancer patient is rife with refreshing cynicism, philosophy uncharacteristic of genre ERIN DESOTO Arizona Daily Wildcat
ohn Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars” is a book for those who don’t enjoy books. Even if you despise reading, you will love this story, a tale of love and loss about 16-year-old cancer patient Hazel Grace and her love interest, Augustus Waters. The plot may seem cliché at first, but it’s clear by the end of chapter one that this story is anything but ordinary. Hazel is hilariously cynical and shockingly unconcerned about her inevitable death as she deals with her terminal illness. In novels, child cancer patients are usually reduced to their disease, but Hazel’s ingeniously crafted voice and authentic snark make her seem like a real, complex person. In Hazel’s speech at her cancer patient support group, Green captures the too-cool-for-school attitude of the average 16-year-old girl despite the serious subject matter: “‘There will come a time,’ [Hazel] said, ‘when all of us are dead. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed. Maybe it’s millions of years away, but if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows everyone else does.’” For being classified as young adult fiction, “The Fault in
Our Stars,” is refreshingly philosophical, in no way like the vampire romances that share shelves with it at bookstores. Green’s writing is straight to the point, and though he’s less than lyrical at times, he still delivers heart-wrenching emotion. Unlike most authors of young adult fiction, Green never overdramatizes and is not afraid to mix comedy with tragedy. For instance, when Hazel is questioned about the oxygen tank she must lug around due to her thyroid cancer, she simply replies, “My lungs suck at being lungs.” It takes talent to turn the tragedy of a terminal illness into a heartwarming and comedic love story, but that is exactly what Green has done. That’s not to say “The Fault in Our Stars” lacks moments of real emotion. The core of this story is in the love between Hazel and Augustus, reminiscent of that between Landon and Jamie in “A Walk to Remember” — except even more heartbreaking because both characters have a terminal illness. The magnificent tragedy of “The Fault in Our Stars” cannot be properly conveyed without spoiling the entire novel, but I can say one thing: You’re going to cry like a baby. Take a break from scanning your accounting textbook or watching last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead” to give this breathtaking story a chance. Even if you claim to hate reading, you will not be able to put this book down.

WHERE THE WILDCATS ARE A look what the Wildcats do, and don’t, have going for them as March Madness begins Up next No. 6 Arizona against No. 11 Belmont When: 4:20 p.m. Where: Salt Lake City
zack rosenblatt Arizona Daily Wildcat
nd so it begins. The official first round of the NCAA tournament began last night with two play-in games, and will continue tonight with two more. Tomorrow is the “real” first round, though, in which half of the 64 teams will start their attempt to trek to Atlanta for the Final Four. The Arizona Wildcats, a six seed in the West Region, will start things off in Salt Lake City against 11th-seed Belmont. Before I head to the Beehive State (yes, that’s the Utah state nickname), here are a few things going for and working against the Wildcats in their latest March Madness endeavor.
Mark Lyons: For most of the season, he’s been Arizona’s Mr. Clutch, particularly in nonconference play. Coming in, he already has seven games of NCAA tournament experience under his belt from three years playing at Xavier. In 11 games this season against NCAA tournament teams, Lyons scored 15.5 points per game and shot 82.9 percent from the free throw line. Bench: Realistically, the Wildcats go eight deep. Occasionally, that extends to nine when head coach Sean Miller feels like giving Angelo Chol playing time. Either way, those eight players have the talent to start on most NCAA teams. Forwards Brandon Ashley and Grant Jerrett, along with guard Jordin Mayes, have all hit their strides as of late. Jerrett is particularly dangerous because of his 3-point stroke as a 6-foot-10 big. Big man depth: Last year, the Arizona Wildcats had one contributing player 6-foot7 or taller: Jesse Perry, who was 6-foot-7 on the dot. This year, the Wildcats employ four capable big men in Jerrett, Ashley, Chol and center Kaleb Tarczewski. Not many teams can trot out that type of height — or talent — in the frontcourt. It should give Arizona the rebounding advantage in most matchups. Belmont, for example, has two contributing big men at that

height and averages four fewer rebounds per game than Arizona. Experience: Miller has coached in 14 NCAA tournament games — 10 at Xavier — and Lyons played in seven for the Musketeers. Solomon Hill, Mayes and Kevin Parrom were all there for the Elite Eight run in 2011. Experience in the postseason is invaluable at this time of the year and should enable the vets to help the young guns (Ashley, Tarczewski and Jerrett). Belmont has never won a NCAA tournament game in its history.
Mark Lyons: What he brings in clutch free throw shooting and pure scoring ability, Lyons gives away in poor decision-making and shoddy shot selection. In those 11 games against NCAA tournament teams this year, Lyons tallied 19 assists and 18 turnovers, and Arizona had all six of its losses in that span.
No. 1 guy: In 2011, the Wildcats had Derrick Williams. In NCAA tournament years BSM (Before Sean Miller), they had guys like Salim Stoudamire, Jason Gardner and Gilbert Arenas leading them deep into the NCAA tournament. The Wildcats don’t have a Williams, Gardner or Arenas. Lyons is Arizona’s leading scorer, but he’s not consistent enough to rely on. In the NCAA tournament, teams can often be carried on the merits of one star, go-to guy’s performance (think Carmelo Anthony at Syracuse or Stephen Curry at Davidson). Belmont can — Ian Clark is the nation’s best 3-point shooter at 46.3 percent. Defense: For much of the season, the Wildcats “pack line” defense was effective. In its first 14 games — all wins — Arizona allowed just 60.7 points per game. But in its last 19 games, including the Pac-12 tournament, the Wildcats allowed 66.9 points per game and lost seven games. After a loss to USC on Feb. 27, Miller called
that stretch of defense the worst he’s ever coached. Most alarming is 3-point defense: The Wildcats are 276th in the nation in allowing opponents to shoot 36 percent. Belmont, on the other hand, is 18th in shooting threes at 38.6 percent. Live or die by the three: When any team relies on the long ball to win games, it can be boom or bust. And for most of Pac-12 play, that’s just what the Wildcats have been doing. Five of Arizona’s six losses came when it shot 19 or more 3-pointers. Before Pac-12 play, it shot 38.7 percent from long range. But during, it shot just 34.5 percent on 21.2 attempts per game. The biggest culprit was Lyons, who shot 30.6 percent on six attempts per game in conference. — Zack Rosenblatt is a journalism senior.

UA needs more from pitchers Pac-12 bracket

LEFT-HANDED PITCHER Tyler Crawford throws against Texas Tech on March 5. Crawford has a 1.88 ERA and 18 strikeouts for the Wildcats this season.
luke della Arizona Daily Wildcat
Pitching wins championships, and in 2012, Kurt Heyer was the engine behind Arizona’s late season run to the fourth national championship in school history. Heyer was Arizona’s Friday night ace all three years he pitched for Arizona. While a Wildcat, Heyer dominated the strike zone and set the tone for the rest of the series. In his final season, Heyer went 13-2 and posted a 2.24 earned run average. He struck out 113 batters while only walking 28. But Heyer is no longer a Wildcat. The sixth round (210th overall) 2012 MLB draft pick by the St. Louis Cardinals can’t lead Arizona out of the dugout anymore. In 2013, junior Konner Wade has taken the reins, and he is still getting comfortable in that role. “I’m still working on my out pitch,” Wade said about his slider. “But it’s a long season, and it’ll get better as I get more command of it.” Wade, who is similar to Heyer in that he thrives in big game starts, hasn’t played up to his full potential this season. Wade stepped into the spotlight in the 2012 postseason as the number two starter. In the tournament, Wade went 4-0 with a 1.29 earned run average in four starts. He pitched the first game of the College World Series, and he was a 2013 Louisville Slugger Preseason All-American (2nd team).
However, Wade is still teetering on the edge of success. The right-hander is 2-1 since taking over Heyer’s role and has struggled to keep runners from scoring, as he has given up 17 earned runs in 34.2 innings pitched. The season is still young, but if the Wildcats want to compete in conference play, they will need their new ace and number two pitcher, James Farris (3-2), to keep opposing lineups from scoring early. The Wildcats have a strong enough lineup to stay in many games, but it’s hard for them to get motivated if they’re down early. “The tone the pitchers set really does affect the offense,” centerfielder Johnny Field said. Head coach Andy Lopez has always said a pitching staff must be tougher than the offense. As of now, the offense is carrying the team.
Bullpen outshining starting pitching
Arizona’s starting pitching may be shaky, but its bullpen is far from it. The Wildcats’ bullpen is deep and has pitched pretty well 23 games into the season. In its final 11 games leading up the national championship, Arizona’s bullpen mainly consisted of only two pitchers: Then-freshman relief pitcher Tyler Crawford and closer Mathew Troupe. But now, senior Augey Bill and freshman Tyger Talley have joined the bullpen and have
proven to Lopez that they can be trusted to hold a lead. The four bullpen pitchers have a combined record of 7-1, with the one loss coming in a Crawford start on Feb. 26 against Utah Valley. Even more impressive, the late-inning Wildcats have only given up 14 runs in 68.3 innings of work. They also strike out 3.2 batters for every walk. Troupe proved himself as a closer at the end of 2012, only giving up one earned run in his final 13.2 innings of work. He also led all Arizona relievers with 44 strikeouts throughout the season, and he’s carried that success over. The fulltime closer is a perfect 2-0 in save opportunities but has made 10 appearances. “[Troupe] has been consistent for us this year, and we have a lot of confidence giving him the ball in the eighth and ninth innings,” Lopez said. “But we still need him to keep his walks down.” Troupe is second on the team in strikeouts (24), second only to starting pitcher Farris (30), who has pitched more than twice as many innings as Troupe. Troupe is on his way to being an all-conference player coming out of the bullpen, but in order for him to do his job as a closer, the Wildcats will need to get to him with a lead. So it falls on the shoulders of the starters and fellow relievers to do their jobs, because if they can get the ball into the sophomore’s hands, it’s almost for sure lights-out.
ell, that was a hard slap to the face. When the NCAA Tournament bracket was announced Sunday, the Pac-12 got all five teams it was expecting (sorry ASU, you didn’t have a prayer). Just one little caveat — the seeds were horrible. West Coast basketball doesn’t get the respect it deserves. I’m obviously not a bracket expert, but ESPN’s Joe Lunardi is. In the final version of his Bracketology, Lunardi hit all 68 teams as well as all of the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds. It’s safe to say he had his finger on the pulse of March Madness. Except for the Pac-12. Only UCLA (No. 6 seed) had the same seed in Bracketology as it did in the actual tournament, while Arizona (No. 6), Colorado (No. 10) and Cal (No. 12) were all one seed lower — and then there was Oregon. The Ducks, a No. 12-seed, were four slots below what Lunardi predicted. That’s at minimum a 13-team swing, for really no reason whatsoever. Oregon finished 26-8, tied for second place in the Pac-12 and won the Pac-12 Tournament. Yet somehow, Middle Tennessee State is a seed ahead of the Ducks. Obviously, this isn’t the Lute Olson and John Wooden conference of old. It’s not the conference of a few years ago, either. The Pac-12 has the No. 6 overall RPI, and the tournament teams went 7-7 in Top-50 RPI games. That’s not overly impressive. But the Pac-12 also has victories against No. 2-seed Miami, No. 3 Florida, No. 4 Saint Louis and No. 5 UNLV. It wasn’t a conference of chumps, either. The Pac-12 was just built on parity and core strength, apparently a bad thing in the minds of the bracket-makers. To be fair, Selection Committee Chairman Mike Bobinski said in a CBS Sports interview that both Oregon and Cal would have been a seed higher, but the bracketing process moved them down a slot. “We think Oregon is a terrific team … but at that point we had evaluated their entire season’s worth of work as belonging somewhere in that 11-range,” Bobinski added when answering Doug Gottlieb’s question. “Unfortunately, during bracketing they dropped to a 12 [seed].” I’ll concede that Cal as an 11-seed is more accurate, especially because its opening game is practically at home in San Jose against a team (UNLV) it nearly beat. The Oregon decision, though, is still dead wrong. The Ducks were 21-4 when guard Dominic Artis was in the lineup and still finished No. 25 in the final AP poll. Yet, the committee ranked them as the No. 43 team. How? Sure, Oregon didn’t finish with excellent computer numbers, but its profile could easily stand up next to Bucknell (11-seed), Oklahoma (10seed), Wichita State (9-seed) or even Colorado. Oregon has a better BPI,

Pac-12 top-heavy early in season LUKE DELLA Arizona Daily Wildcat
Arizona fans had high expectations for the defending champions entering this season, but it would have been nearly impossible for the Wildcats to improve on last season’s success. Wednesday’s three-game sweep to Oregon State at Hi Corbett Field brought many Arizona fans back to reality. The sweep by the Beavers also established their pitching staff as a dominating force that has made them early favorites of the Pac-12 conference. Arizona head coach Andy Lopez said he believes the pitching staff must be stronger than the offense. Nearly all the teams at the top of the conference are led by their pitching staff, which is why Arizona currently sits in the middle of the Pac-12’s power rankings.
Oregon State (19-1, 3-0 Pac-12)
Fresh off a sweep of the Wildcats, the No. 4 Beavers have reached the high ranking behind their strong pitching staff. Led by Friday night ace senior Matt Boyd (4-0), Oregon State posts the nation’s lowest team earned run average (1.59). The Beavers also rank in the top-10 in hits allowed per nine innings, one behind UCLA. Before this past weekend’s sweep in Tucson, Oregon State also demolished a then-No. 22 San Diego State team on the road in a four-game series. The Beavers outscored the Aztecs 22-2 in the four
MLB Draft, respectively, but now the two are first-round prospects. Incredibly, Vanegas and Wilson aren’t the only first-round prospects on Stanford’s roster. Senior starting pitcher Mark Appel and junior first baseman Brian Ragira are also high on scouts’ lists. However, Appel and Ragira have struggled in 2013 due to their injuries. Despite posting a 1.20 earned run average, Appel can’t get any run support and is 2-2 on the season. Ragira has had No. 11 UCLA might be the most a steady bat early into the season but complete team in the conference. The hasn’t had many plate appearances with only characteristics that separate UCLA runners in scoring position. from Oregon State are that the Bruins have lacked consistency and started the conference season off against an The Wildcats’ offense has recovered unimpressive Washington team. well even after losing five starters from Similar to the Beavers, UCLA’s last season’s national championship top-notch pitching staff is far more team. Powered by arguably the threatening to opposing teams than its conference’s best hitters, third baseman offense.

However, what makes Oregon State valuable is that it relies heavily on its pitching staff. Currently ranked 48th in the country in scoring (6.7 runs per game), the Beavers could slip in the rankings if their pitching staff doesn’t maintain their dominance. But for now, the Beavers are hot.

Swimmers prep for NCAAs EVAN ROSENFELD Arizona Daily Wildcat
After finishing fourth in the final standings of the Pac-12 Championships, behind Stanford, USC and Cal, Arizona’s women swimmers are back in action this week in the NCAA Championships at the IU Natatorium in Indianapolis, Ind. During the Pac-12 Championships, the Wildcats’ relay team earned three titles in the 200-yard freestyle relay, 200ymedley relay and 400y-medley relay. “I was really proud of our performances,” head coach Eric Hansen said. “I think they prepared us well, moving forward into NCAAs.” Seniors Lauren Smart, Ellyn Baumgardner and Megan Lafferty and junior Margo Geer made up the “A” team for the 400y-medley relay and swam their way to a title, compiling a time of 3:28.91 and narrowly missing the American record of 3:28.31. Nonetheless, their time went down as the fastest national time for the event this year. The “B” team, made up by senior Chelsey Salli, juniors Kait Flederbach and Ashley Evans and freshman Bonnie Brandon, went on to earn first place and an NCAA “A” cut time of 3:34.51. “We had really strong swims and performed well,” Flederbach said. “People stepped up when not everyone was shaved and we capitalized on our opportunities. I can’t wait for NCAA relays; they are a strong core feature of Arizona swimming, and I think those relays will propel us towards the finals.” The 200y-freestyle relay title was captured by the team of Geer, Flederbach, Lafferty and Alana Pazevic, who earned gold with a time of 1:27.93. The team of Smart, Baumgardner, Lafferty, and Geer also acquired a title in the 200y-medley relay with a time of
1:36.22. Geer acquired the only individual championships for the women in the 50y and 100y-freestyle events, posting times of 21.78 and 47.59, respectively. She became the first Arizona swimmer to win the 50y-freestyle event since Lara Jackson in 2009 and the first to win the 100y-freestyle event since Lacey Nymeyer in 2008. “I was really happy with myself,” Geer said. “I didn’t really know what to expect, but it turned into the best-case scenario. I’m looking forward to the whole environment of NCAAs. We worked the whole season for this one meet, and I can’t wait to see some fast swimming.” Brandon made a splash during her first appearance in the Pac-12 and contributed in the first place effort of the 400y-medley “B” team. She placed fourth in the 800yfreestyle relay and qualified first in the preliminaries of the 500y-freestyle event. In the finals of the 500y-free she placed second, falling only to USC’s Olympic silver medalist Haley Anderson. “I was really pleased with how I did for my first Pac-12s,” Brandon said. “Hopefully, I can improve on my times and do some damage at NCAAs. My personal goals are to be in the top eight in the 200 back and 500 free. I’m looking forward to just having fun with the team and enjoying my first NCs.” In the upcoming week, Arizona swimmers will be pitted against the nation’s fastest and most-decorated swimmers as they look to finish the year off strong. “I think there are a handful of teams that have a shot to win,” Hansen said. “I’d like to think that we are capable of being there to win. It would have to be a perfect meet for us, but at the same time, we don’t train every day to not have a perfect meet. We’re looking forward to seeing what our best is, and we have been saving it for this meet.”

SEEDING FROM PAGE 8
which accounts for injuries, than all of those teams — other than the Shockers. Still, Wichita State has a pretty similar resume. I even get Bobinski’s point that the bracketing process screws things up. For some reason two 11-seeds (Middle Tennessee State and St. Mary’s) just played last night, so there have to be some weird logistical things going on. But hey, I have an idea. How about doing away with all the stupid play-in games and making things simple? Greed is never the answer. Well, actually it’s always the answer for the NCAA, just not the right one. At least Gonzaga got a 1-seed and the Mountain West was shown a little respect with New Mexico snagging a 3-seed and even middle-ofthe pack Boise State sneaking in. But the Mountain West has the No. 1 conference RPI, according to CBSSports.com. It earned that respect; the committee shouldn’t be celebrated for giving it to the team. The term “East Coast bias” is thrown around a lot. Any time a decision doesn’t go the Pac-12’s way, it’s easy to just blame it on the bias. But in this case, I don’t see any other answer. The late start times must’ve been past the committee’s bedtime, because there is no reason VCU, the Atlantic-10 runner-up, should have a higher seed than Arizona. The Wildcats have a higher winning percentage and better RPI, SOS and BPI numbers. I don’t know what else to factor in. All season long, head coach Sean Miller talked about how this was the strongest Pac-12 he has coached in, that it was deep and balanced, making the black and blue nature of the conference understandable and even desirable. With conference play done, it turns out Miller was right. The conference is finally back; it’s just not top-heavy. Too bad no one in the selection committee seemed to notice. — Kyle Johnson is a journalism junior. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter via @KyleJohnsonUA.
