Police prepare for possible riots BY HANNAH PLOTKIN The Daily Wildcat
After the Arizona men’s basketball team lost the NCAA Championship game in 2001, hundreds of fans poured onto Fourth Avenue, chanting “U of A.” The crowd grew violent, broke shop windows, overturned cars and set fire to buildings and a trailer. The riots, following the April 2, 2001 NCAA Championship game
against Duke University, resulted in massive property damage and 17 arrests and left more than 40 people injured. With this year’s possibility of the first championship run for the Wildcats since 2001, local law enforcement is bearing down. The Tucson Police Department and the University of Arizona Police Department are taking steps to prevent possible riots during the NCAA Championships this year.
New ASUA president talks next year’s plans
M. Scot Skinner, a former reporter for the Arizona Daily Star, was on Fourth Avenue the night of the riots in 2001. He drove to Fourth Avenue after hearing about the riots on the nightly news. Skinner said he could see the fires burning from his house on the west side of Tucson. Skinner recalled that when the unruly fans began to form a mob, many police officers left and the lack of police presence allowed
the destruction to escalate. “The reason why [police] left was to get into their outfits, into their riot gear,” Skinner said. “That was when most of the damage happened.” Skinner arrived after most of the rioters had dispersed. Upon arrival he saw a nearly abandoned street and a line of police officers in full riot gear approaching him. “Somebody yelled at me, one
HOW SWEET IT IS
Since becoming president-elect of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, Issac Ortega, a business economics junior, said he has already started preparing to take on his responsibilities as president. Ortega will be inaugurated May 1 and receive a stipend of $6,000 for the 2014-15 school year. The Daily Wildcat spoke with Ortega to find out what issues he will be focusing on during his presidency.

Daily Wildcat: What was your reaction when you found out that you were going to be ASUA president? Ortega: I almost can’t remember those 10 to 15 seconds when it actually happened. I just remember hugging my closest friends and being so grateful that they were there. … They carried me through the last few hours when I was dead tired. … It was absolutely amazing. The next few thoughts I had after that were, ‘I can’t let them down. No matter what happens, I can’t let them down.’ … I actually forever feel in debt to the students who voted for me and put me in this position. I’m going to make sure that I don’t waste it.

What happened over break: Gas leak, tuition proposals and more BY ETHAN MCSWEENEY AND JAZMINE FOSTER-HALL
Students were vacationing on the beach or relaxing at home for spring break, but the news didn’t stop for the UA. Here’s what you may have missed: A natural gas leak occurred in the area of Cherry Avenue and First Street on Thursday. Traffic was closed to Cherry between First and Second Streets as Southwest Gas worked to fix the problem. Gas was turned off for the St. Thomas More Catholic Newman Center, Delta Delta Delta, Sigma Kappa, Delta Tau Delta and Gamma Phi Beta. The leak was fixed at approximately 3:30 p.m, at which time the streets were reopened and the buildings had gas restored.
The three state universities officially submitted their tuition proposals to the Arizona Board of Regents on March 14. The proposal for UA includes a 2 percent tuition increase for current in-state students and a 5 percent increase for current out-of-state students. The proposal also lists a four-year plan for incoming students with a set tuition rate for all four years. The set tuition rate would be 6 percent above the current rate, and current students would be given the option to choose this plan if they felt it would be more cost effective. The tuition rate would be reset for each incoming freshman class. UA doctor Suzanne Sisley had thought that House Bill 2333 might provide funding for her to conduct studies on whether marijuana could be used to treat patients with post-traumatic stress disorder. This study would be the first of its kind, and is something Sisley has been working on for years. However,

Natural gas leak affects campus buildings
The Arizona Senate released its version of the state budget last week, which included $2.5 million for the UA Cooperative Extension program. The UA funding is less than what was requested by the Arizona Board of Regents, which has expressed concern over the lack of funding. The state budget now moves to the Arizona House of Representatives, where legislators will vote whether or not to approve the Senate version.

COURTESY OF UA COLLEGE OF MEDICINE PHOENIX TWITTER
MATCH DAY, a national event when medical students across the country find out where they will complete their residency program, took place at the UA on Friday. More than 100 students attended the event and received their residency assignments for after graduation.
Sen. Kimberly Yee (R-Phoenix) decided not to give a hearing to the Housepassed bill, which would provide funding for research into the uses of medical marijuana, with the money coming from state fees on medical marijuana use and sale. Without support from the bill, Sisley will need to find another source of funding.

Spring may bring drought to Arizona
ORTEGA Q&A FROM PAGE 1
And then we’re going to be able to hopefully work with the Daily Wildcat or KAMP Radio to add media outlets at the same time to let students know that this is what we’re doing. As far as the community, I recently spoke with a director inside the [Office of] Early Academic Outreach inside the Dean of Students Office, and they got funding for this new program called Pave the Way. … It’s supposed to create this kind of college-going mentality within high schools. Tucson hasn’t necessarily in the past had the greatest college-going mentality, which kind of hits like a soft spot in my heart because I come from one of those high schools, Pueblo High School in the south side, and I really want to get behind it. And I think if we start building those relationships now with those high schools, it’s going to eventually grow into higher retention. The last thing that I’m also working on … is diversity inside ASUA, what we claimed it to be in the past, where it stands now and what we want to see it be in the future. We’re going to take this summer and really hammer out those details. … In the past … and it’s not a secret, I don’t think — there hasn’t been a strong connection between the cultural centers and ASUA and all the resources that we have. … So I’m going to hire my executive director for diversity and between me and whoever that person is, we’re going to go to the cultural centers, and between the coordinators and the very involved students that are there, we’re going to start to build a new kind of diversity.

UA tours are reminder to enjoy college life BY brittany rudolph The Daily Wildcat
nlike many of my friends, I did not spend my spring break lying on the beach in Mexico or tanning in California. Instead, I took a more boring route — I joined my family on tours of the Arizona universities. My younger sister is a junior in high school, and she’ll soon have to make her biggest decision yet: where to go to college. Walking through different schools and seeing them from the viewpoint of a prospective student was strange. I couldn’t help but laugh a bit when I saw visitors’ jaws drop at things like dorm rooms and dining halls. As current students, we get so caught up in our classes and work that we lose our sense of wonder at the world around us. Taking a college tour while already attending college may sound a little too silly, but there’s something to be said for appreciating the little things about university life. Next time a tour circles by you on the UA Mall, don’t roll your eyes at the overwhelmed students and parents — try to be more like them. We’ve all seen the groups of anxious high school students nervously trekking through the Student Union Memorial Center. They’re amazed by the prospect of free movies at Gallagher Theater and easy access to Chick-fil-A. Visions of meal plans dance in their heads. The places we see every day are not ordinary to them, but foreign and extraordinary. Lunch in the student union seems almost as glamorous as dinner atop the Eiffel Tower. There’s something oddly poignant about the embarrassed enthusiasm on the high schoolers’ faces. They’re interested, but they try to play it cool. They want to stick by their parents, but they don’t want to stand too close. Despite their best efforts, they can’t completely hide their emotions. From what I’ve seen, prospective students are usually very excited to see what the UA has to offer. Current students tend to see things a little differently. I sometimes find myself so busy with classes and extracurricular activities that college seems more of a burden than a privilege. It’s a shame. We may not have time to value every little detail about school, but we should still try to be enthusiastic in general about the opportunities we have here. As the end of the spring semester approaches and final exams loom on the horizon, feeling jaded and overwhelmed is easy. We may be stressed out, but we owe it to ourselves to make the most of our education. When you see things as if you’re viewing them for the first time, you remember how lucky you are to be in your current situation. Collegiate catastrophes, like midterms and papers, seem less insurmountable. You may even notice lesser-known campus gems, like the garden area outside the Forbes building. I’ve found doing everything the guide talks about during a tour is easier said than done. However, we current students should still do our best to take advantage of everything we can. We don’t need to join all 600 clubs and organizations, but we should still see the value in trying something new. As I took tours with my sister, I even found myself interested by the amenities and information given by the guides. In short, I was 17 again. Just call me Zac Efron. At the end of the day, your college experience is what you make of it. Remaining as positive and excited as you were as an incoming freshman can make even the worst days — the ones they don’t tell you about on tours — more pleasant. You don’t necessarily need to tag along with the next tour group you see rounding the corner in the student union, but you may want to remember what made you come here in the first place. Take a minute to reconnect with your 17-year-old self. You may be stressed out of your mind right now, but you’re more independent than you’ve ever been before. That’s pretty incredible. — Brittany Rudolph is a sophomore studying English and art history. Follow her @DailyWildcat.
Online bios replace résumés BY Mackenzie Brown The Daily Wildcat
ith the rapid shift to digitize just about everything, from college applications to coursework, it’s about time to update the wellworn and seemingly trite résumé. The résumé is often replaced by something we’re familiar with in the age of social media: the bio. Much more attention-grabbing than the simple facts on a résumé, the bio is to employers what the personal statement is to a college admissions office. It allows employers to know exactly who they’re hiring by giving them a brief insight into your personality. Résumés just list off qualifications: Previous experience, suitable references and usually vague descriptions of personal traits one desperately hopes an employer will appreciate buried somewhere in there. I’d rather not count the number of times I’ve included organized and self-motivated on my list of skills. To employers looking for the optimal candidate for a position, those words are completely
empty. Boring résumés usually get buried in a rejection stack, so how does a bio really make you stand out? Thanks to sites like LinkedIn and Readyforce, it’s incredibly easy for college grads to make connections with potential employers looking for creative, innovative people. LinkedIn makes it easy to upload employment history, qualifications and testimonials from colleagues, clients and employers. Snappy bios make you stand out to employers browsing your page, and a well-rounded LinkedIn profile can give you a competitive edge. According to bluebugle.org, Commpro, a marketing and communications company found that 98 percent of employers use LinkedIn, and an average recruiter has about 600 connections. Meanwhile, with Readyforce, grads can use social media to their advantage: Video clips and personal statements are tangible examples of the work they can accomplish for their future employers. Instead of a résumé, social media compiles all of your skills into a single, easy-tonavigate page that’s vastly more interesting. By building your profile to highlight your specific qualifications and showcase
your accomplishments and connections, it becomes far easier to show yourself off to companies who might overlook your talents otherwise. In January 2013, Vala Afshar, the CMO and Chief Customary Officer of wireless networking provider Enterasays Networking, tweeted that he would be hiring a new social marketer. The caveat? No paper résumés. The social marketer would be hired via Twitter and receive a six-figure salary. And that’s just one way employers and applicants can come together to size each other up; there are also sites dedicated to showcasing the technical skills of applicants, especially for computer science majors looking to show off their coding ability. One of these, Readyforce’s new site called HackerHub, facilitates hackathons, mass programming events where students test their problem-solving knowledge and collaborate with one another, and publishes amateur-created opensource content. Obviously HackerHub isn’t for everyone, but the bio certainly is. In the same way HackerHub showcases raw ability, the bio is the perfect digital alternative to anything you could include in a résumé. According to techcrunch.
com, Readyforce has employed interviewers to do webcam conversations with applicants to construct 20-minute videos that can be edited down to three minutes of highlights that exhibit knowledge, articulation and how hireable you are. Potential employers are not going to spend massive amounts of time trying to work out what the phrase “teamoriented” or “able to achieve goals” mean, but a short clip of you discussing your passions, ideas and personal goals might be that extra information that gets you hired. There’s a vast new hiring frontier for both employers and applicants to bypass generic hiring techniques. Specific qualifications showcased by the application of skills and presentation of the applicant’s personality are eliminating the need for facts listed out on paper. It’s time to set ourselves apart from the stack and utilize the full potential of social media. The online bio provides us with greater opportunity to make ourselves desirable to future employers, so down with the résumé once and for all. — Mackenzie Brown is a prephysiology freshman.

Pulse of the Pac Columnists from the Pac-12 write about South African KFC commercials and LGBT equality From “There’s a difference between entitled and racist” by Fletcher Bailey Black people love fried chicken. E! News has released an article reporting concerns of racism regarding a KFC advertisement from South Africa that’s causing domestic outrage. The ad depicts a young black girl finding cultural refuge in a Bangkok KFC restaurant. Backlash from the ad seems to be the result of a hyper-sensitive generation of controversy-seekers and a recently entitled subset of African-Americans. We, as African Americans, must stop victimizing ourselves. ... First and foremost, this ad is entirely South African. I would urge my fellow Americans of all races to refrain from being so vain as to think that the entire globe operates along the American social construct. As for the African American population retaliating against those responsible for the

advertisement, let’s get over our insecurities, shall we? Yes, racism is still alive and well in our country, and I feel the effects of such a notion in my own everyday life. Regardless, we as a people only work to belittle our progress when we race speedily to pass ourselves off as victims of racism where there is no racism.

From “LGBT community: time to take a stand” by Georgie Zamantakis Within the past few months, progression, regression and stagnation occurred within Utah’s LGBT community, as marriage equality was legalized and then put on stay. [Senate Bill] 100, seeking to amend the state’s non-discrimination laws to include sexual orientation and gender identity, was placed under a moratorium and then, recently, was read in the Senate Rules Committee.

Alongside this, applications of couples seeking to adopt children or to have legal joint custody of their children through the adoption process have been denied. ... Throughout this, queers have refused to stand by in silence. For decades, the queer community has fought for equity within every institution and have been denied for reasons of “morality.” While no one should ever have to ask for basic human rights, for decades the queer community has had to beg on their hands and knees. A right is a right. A right is not something you take or give based off trust or proving worthiness — that is a privilege. The right to enter a relationship with the one you love is not a privilege. The right to create a family, including adopting children, is not a privilege. Everyone has the right to be safe in their own home and place of work. The Daily Utah Chronicle University of Utah

POLICE BEAT BY ELIZABETH EATON The Daily Wildcat
Three UA students were cited for possession of marijuana at 11 p.m. in the Sixth Street Parking Garage on March 6. One of the students was also cited for possession of drug paraphernalia. After receiving a tip, two University of Arizona Police Department officers arrived at the parking garage to investigate possible marijuana use. They discovered three students hiding behind a dumpster with a strong smell of marijuana around them. When asked what they were doing, the students refused to respond. An officer noticed a plastic Skippy peanut butter jar on the ground, and asked what was in it. Once again, the students didn’t respond. At this point, another officer arrived on the scene. He reported that as he walked toward the parking garage, he had seen a plastic baggie falling through the air. The officer had opened the bag, discovered it contained marijuana and a pipe, and joined the other officers in the garage. Two of the three students admitted to smoking marijuana, but one claimed that the pipe in question was not the one they’d been smoking from, and his was darker in color. A second student claimed that he did not see who tossed the pipe off the garage but said it was not him. He did admit that all three of them had been smoking from that particular pipe. An officer noticed a bulge in the pocket of the third student, who refused a search and claimed to not have been smoking marijuana. The officer then asked the third student to stick out his tongue, which he did, and noticed that it was covered in a green frothy film, a condition known as “cottonmouth,” which sometimes results after marijuana use. The officers then investigated the suspicious peanut butter jar and found it contained 1.6 grams of marijuana, a grinder and a lighter. The three students were then cited and released for possession of marijuana. The student who had admitted to smoking from the pipe but did not know who threw it over the edge of the garage was cited and released for possession of drug paraphernalia.

A portable toilet was vandalized at 6 a.m. on Tumamoc Hill on March 5. Two UAPD officers arrived on the scene to inspect the portable toilet after its condition had been reported. The man who had discovered the vandalism said that he’d found graffiti sprayed all around the inside, and the walls and toilet seat had been smeared with feces. By the time the officers, arrived the man had already cleaned up the graffiti, but he had emailed the officers pictures of it. The man also stated that the graffiti had been a recurring problem, and he’d noticed an unusually large number of empty alcohol cans and bottles on the path near the hill. The pictures of the graffiti were placed into evidence.

Living the Space Race through art BY Chelsey Wade The Daily Wildcat
Robert T. McCall’s images of exploration have appeared on everything from puzzles and postage stamps to murals and the poster for “2001: A Space Odyssey,” and his work is now on display at the University of Arizona Museum of Art as part of the “An Unfolding Legacy” exhibit. An artist for Life magazine, McCall painted space-themed art for 60 years and also worked for NASA to artistically represent the Space Race. The combination of archival material from McCall’s life, his art and a display of what inspired him makes this current exhibit unique to the UA Museum of Art. The exhibit looks to give viewers a clearer perspective of McCall by presenting science-driven moments that inspired him to create his images. “We have his archival material; we have his sketchbooks, supply bags, work apron, the camera he carried around with him, which provide these

‘Divergent’ promises an entertaining series BY Alex Guyton
The Daily Wildcat
There’s a new challenger in the ring of bestselling-young-adult-novel film adaptations. Joining the ranks of the “Harry Potter”, “Twilight” and “Hunger Games” series, while landing somewhere in the middle of these three, is “Divergent.” Led by the consistently great Shailene Woodley, “Divergent” is an entertaining, if not a very even, premiere of a new series with promise. “Divergent” is based on Veronica Roth’s 2011 novel of the same name. In both the film and the book, citizens of a futuristic, dystopian Chicago are divided into five different factions: Abnegation (selfless), Amity (peaceful), Candor (honest), Erudite (intelligent) and Dauntless (brave). Your faction determines what occupation you have
for the rest of your life. Every child belongs to their parents’ faction until they turn 16 years old. On that day, they take an aptitude test where they’re hooked up to a machine that reads their personality, kind of like if Aldous Huxley crafted the Sorting Hat in “Harry Potter.” This test tells them which faction they’re best suited for, and then they must decide whether to stay with their parents’ faction or blaze their own trail. As you can see, there’s a fair amount of world building, and those unfamiliar with the books may need some time to get the lay of the land. Of course our protagonist, the soft-spoken Beatrice (Shailene Woodley), is the exception to all of these rules. She hails from Abnegation, but her aptitude test tells her she has a personality fit for not only Abnegation, but also for Erudite and Dauntless. People who have an aptitude for more than one faction are

known as divergents. They are considered a glitch in the perfect matrix of social hierarchy and predestination. On choosing day, Beatrice abandons the faction she was raised in and chooses Dauntless, which is essentially a standing army that’s tasked with protecting the city. For the most part, they actually just do a lot of really cool-looking parkour. Beatrice, who gives herself the name Tris, must now learn to navigate and survive her new faction, members of which live and train in a subterranean barracks. Everyone’s all a bit cartoonishly macho, making the ascension of our young protagonist all the more impressive. Woodley, as usual, is stellar. Much like Jennifer Lawrence, she’s an incredibly likeable young female lead. She has an unadorned beauty, which is a concept that flies in the face of the many Hollywood actresses whose looks are almost alien. Woodley’s Tris, like most of Woodleys’ characters, is steeped in straightforward honesty. Joining Woodley is Theo James as the enigmatic Four, the instructor of the new Dauntless initiates. He does “hardened leader” pretty well and then he eventually softens up. A criminally underused Kate Winslet also appears in the film. She plays Jeanine Matthews, the leader of Erudite faction. She fully believes in the stringent nature of the

faction system, spouting clichéd lines about how human nature needs to be controlled. For an antagonist, she doesn’t get a whole lot of screen time, which may be a good thing, since her character feels so canned and onedimensional. What really got me on board with this film was the third act. After all of the exposition and Tris developing, the film delivers. The hints of conflict and conspiracy that it had sprinkled throughout eventually explode. There are enough harrowing moments and twists to make for some good cinema. Have we reached carrying capacity for these dystopian young adult fantasy films yet? There are certainly similar motifs between “Divergent” and “The Hunger Games.” However, distributor Lionsgate has already greenlit the sequel “Insurgent,” and I can say that, largely due to Woodley’s efforts in “Divergent,” I will not dread watching the sequel.

No. 21 Arizona gymnastics finished second in Session II and in sixth place overall at the Pac-12 Championships on Saturday in Berkeley, Calif., with a score of 196.250. “I’m very pleased with it,” head coach Bill Ryden said. “It was a conservative start on bars, but the team certainly did not let it get them down, and we just kept fighting.” Sophomore Shelby Edwards led the Gymcats with a score of 9.825 on bars, while sophomore Lexi Mills led with a 9.875 on beam, tying her career high. On floor, junior Kristin Klarenbach scored a 9.900, which was her eighth score of 9.900 or better on the season. “It is our best road performance of the year so far, so it is a great springboard into the postseason,” Ryden said. Finishing off on vault, the Gymcats scored a seasonhigh 49.425. Junior Allison Flores, Edwards and freshman Mackenzie Valentin all scored career highs of 9.950, 9.950 and 9.900, respectively. Their scores earned Flores and Edwards the Pac-12 vault title in a four-way tie. “We haven’t had a conference champion in the program in many years, so congratulations to both of them,” Ryden said. “It is great for them and great for the program.” The Gymcats started off spring break with senior night as they took first place in their final home meet against No. 25 BYU, Texas Woman’s and Bridgeport on March 15. After the meet’s results, Ryden held a ceremony honoring seniors Shana Sangston, Barbara Donaldson and Ali Stakem. “It’s a really exciting day overall,” Klarenbach said. savannah douglas/The Daily Wildcat “We go to lunch and dress the Senior all-around Shana Sangton performs seniors up and parade them her floor routine during Arizona’s victory against around and make them feel Texas Woman’s, BYU and Bridgeport on March that they are appreciated for 15 in McKale Center.

The Gymcats also defeated Air Force in Colorado Springs, Colo., 195.775195.300 on March 17, in their last meet of the regular season. Opening the meet, the Gymcats scored a 49.025 on bars, led by freshman Selynna FelixTerrazas with a score of 9.875. Moving on to vault, the Gymcats set the bar high with a 49.375. However, on floor, the team scored 48.225, a season low. Finishing out the meet on beam, the Gymcats scored a 49.150 to secure the victory. The Gymcats competed in three meets in eight days over the break and finished on a positive note with the season-high score on vault. “It’s been hard, and they have handled it without complaint,” Ryden said. “The emotion of the senior meet and the immediate turnaround to the elevation of Colorado … and then to come back to the conference championships meet was the best of the three. We have been waiting to put a good all-around meet all year, so this one was the best so far.” — Follow Matt Wall @mwall20
The Arizona women’s swimming and diving team collected a few top-three finishes before taking eighth place overall in the NCAA Championships, which were held last week at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center. Led by All-Americans senior Margo Geer and sophomore Bonnie Brandon, the Wildcats amassed 156 points at the competition, which was won by Georgia for the second straight year. Geer made a statement during prelims for the 100-yard freestyle. The senior surged across the water to touch the wall in 47 seconds flat, making her the third-fastest woman ever in the event. During the final, Geer finished first with a time of 47.10, holding off Olympic medalists Lia Neal and Missy Franklin to defend her national title in the event. Geer also took third in the 50y freestyle. Despite missing multiple events due to illness, sophomore Bonnie Brandon grinded her way to a fifth place finish in the 500y freestyle with a time of 4:36.91. Brandon also swam in several relay events.

was a little jittery and that sort of got [the whole team] a little jittery last game. I think he was more ready to play tonight, and he definitely had a big game for us.” Hollis-Jefferson said that McConnell never fails to get the team hyped up in the right situations. Sophomore center Kaleb Tarczewski said McConnell is one of Arizona’s quintessential on-court leaders. “T.J. is our floor general,” Tarczewski said. “When he’s playing well, everyone is playing well. … When he’s at his best, our team is at our best, and he was at his best tonight.” When asked about his performance after Sunday’s game, McConnell passed the recognition to his teammates and said that all of the credit goes to them. “They made me look good,” McConnell said. On Sunday, the Wildcats took advantage of 21 turnovers by the Bulldogs, scoring 31 points off of them. Arizona managed to cut its turnover total from Friday in half and only committed six, leading to two points for Gonzaga, and allowing the Wildcats to take better control of the game. “The turnovers ignited our transition, and we’re always at our best when we can use our defense,” head coach Sean Miller said. “Tonight we scored as many points in that area as we have all season long.” REBECCA MARIE SASNETT/The Daily Wildcat

36% of UA students have not had sexual intercourse in the past year. (2013 Health & Wellness Survey, n=3,055) I’m a freshman, and have never had sex. I don’t plan it anytime soon, however, me and my boyfriend have been together nine months. If we decided to have sex, (we’re both virgins) what are some of the things we should know about having sex the first time? Where can I find more info about losing my virginity?
A. Planning ahead is a great idea and can lead to a positive and memorable, (if not perfect) “first time” for both of you. It may be many things at once: wonderful, funny, uncomfortable, playful, sensuous, awkward, thrilling, difficult, satisfying, and even embarrassing. Before the big event, check out reliable sexual health resources that are available online, including the UA Campus Health website. First things first: if you’re not ready for a pregnancy, be confident in choosing an effective method of contraception. To compare options, visit www.health.arizona.edu (search for “birth control”). Many methods are available at UA Campus Health by prescription (the pill, “the shot,” diaphragms, Nuva Ring®, and IUDs), and in our pharmacy (condoms). Next, remember that everyone works at different speeds. A man may develop a strong erection just thinking about or seeing his partner long before she is aroused and lubricated in her genital area. Adequate lubrication is key (whether naturally produced by a woman or from a water-

based lube like KY® jelly). Penetration is easier with lube and less likely to be painful (a concern many first timers have). Choose a private, comfortable setting where you won’t be interrupted. To maximize pleasure, allow time for both of you to explore each other’s bodies and become fully aroused before penetration. In terms of positions, many women are more likely to achieve orgasm when positioned side by side, or on top. Some women may easily achieve orgasm through stimulation of the clitoris, but less frequently during vaginal intercourse. Talk about what feels good to you and what doesn’t. Don’t be shy about expressing your feelings. Use “I” statements such as “I like it when you touch me gently here” (and show them how). Or “that feels good... keep going!” Experience will help you achieve the outcome you desire. If your partner cums in ecstasy but you don’t have “fireworks” the first time, don’t worry. Don’t lie about it. Be honest. And if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

Spring break is usually a time for students to relax, but not for the Arizona softball team. The Wildcats played a total of seven games over the break, including opening Pac-12 Conference play. Arizona (27-6, 2-3 Pac-12) most recently took the field Sunday at Hillenbrand Stadium in the second game of a threegame series against the Oregon State Beavers. The Wildcats used a five-run first inning to lead to the 13-1 five-inning victory in the team’s conference homeopening series. Redshirt junior shortstop Kellie Fox continued her seasonlong offensive outburst by hitting a two-run home run in the second inning. On the year Fox has a team-high 12 homers and 44 runs batted in. Three other Arizona hitters joined Fox in the power surge by launching home runs of their own on Sunday. Headlining
the group was freshman third to zero runs. Perhaps the most baseman Katiyana Mauga, who frustrating part of the sweep for hit two home runs in the ball head coach Mike Candrea was game to go along with three runs when the Wildcats gave up five runs to UCLA in the seventh batted in.

SAN DIEGO — Despite a few minor bumps in the road, Arizona won its first two NCAA tournament games and earned its 16th Sweet Sixteen after defeating Gonzaga on Sunday in the Round of 32. While the top-seeded Wildcats controlled the pace of the 84-61 victory over the Bulldogs, that was not the case on Friday against Weber State, when the UA looked like a completely different team. On Friday, Arizona fell into an early seven-point deficit and allowed WSU to claw its way back over the final 10 minutes — seeing it tighten what was at first a 21-point deficit to nine. “No one knows more than I do how bad I struggled against Weber State,” junior point guard T.J. McConnell said. “Coach [Sean] Miller and I had a talk and my teammates told me to go out there and play like I can. … That’s what I did.” After failing to score a single point in Friday’s contest, McConnell scored 12 points on Sunday. In the first game of his first career NCAA Tournament appearance, McConnell shot 0-for-4 from the floor and turned the ball over twice as Arizona struggled to secure a respectable win over a No. 16 seed. However, against Gonzaga, McConnell sunk three of his four attempts from beyond the arc, was 4-for-8 from the field overall, dished out a game-high six assists and added three steals in the 23-point triumph. “I just think we got all of the jitters out,” freshman forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson said. “T.J.
