hen she arrived in Tucson years ago, Vicky Westover wondered what type of film festival would work best for the new region she would be living in. As director of the UA Hanson Film Institute, Westover organized the first Mexican film festival of contemporary directors in Tucson in 2005. The Institute, in collaboration with UA Film and Television, will show seven films this weekend for the Ninth Annual Tucson Cine Mexico Film Festival. Westover said the festival aims to show the best in contemporary Mexican cinema while keeping a balance of subjects, directors and genres. The films will be shown in Spanish with English subtitles. “The last 12 years [have] seen this amazing film talent come out of Mexico,” Westover said. “The festival began right at the time where people were starting to pay attention to Mexican cinema in a new golden age for Mexico.”

Animated film maintains light tone despite bittersweet plot


alex guyton

cclaimed Japanese animation director Hayao Miyazaki has crafted another fine film. Substituting a turbulent Japan circa World War II for fantastical realms, “The Wind Rises” is an exquisite portrait of a man and a country who bring each other both great happiness and great tragedy. “The Wind Rises” (or, in its original Japanese, “Kaze Tachinu”) takes a path divergent from the majority of films that come out of Studio Ghibli, the studio co-founded by Miyazaki. While classics like “Spirited Away” and “My Neighbor Totoro” (both of which were directed by Miyazaki) are steeped in fantasy, this film has a slightly more realistic subject. It is the fictionalized biography of Jiro Horikoshi (voiced by Hideaki Anno), the engineer who designed the infamous Ja p a n e s e “Zero” fighter aircraft used in World War II. Lush greens and blues make up Jiro’s world at its most positive and inspiring. Verdant, vast fields of grass, open skies and fantastical flying machines populate his dreams, a reflection of his innocence and pure intentions to create a beautiful airplane. However, as Caproni, a famed Italian aeronautical engineer who Jiro interacts with in his dreams,

says: “Airplanes are beautiful, cursed dreams, waiting for the sky to swallow them up.” Peppered throughout the story are omens that Jiro’s lofty dreams will spiral into nightmares. Flaming planes and rubble intrude on the pastoral beauty, a cacophony of reds and blacks. You can feel the world change in this movie. The 1930s and ’40s were volatile decades for the world, and for no country more than Japan. On Jiro’s train ride back to Tokyo after a holiday, the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 hits, leveling the nearby city and setting it aflame. It is in that disaster that he first meets the woman who will become the great love of his life, Naoko (Miori Takimoto). As Jiro begins his work as an engineer, Germany and Japan are uncomfortable bedmates in the production of military-grade planes. Japan still uses cattle to move its prototype planes onto the testing field, while Germany has already crafted full metal behemoths. An engineer asks what the planes will be used for and one quips that it will be used to bomb A m e r i c a , which will more than likely not end well. “Japan will blow up,” is repeated more than once in the film. These types of foreshadowing are strewn throughout. As hindsight allows the viewer and filmmaker crystal clear perception, there is the unshakeable knowledge

“you can feel the world change in this movie. the 1930s and ’40s were volatile decades for the world, and for no country more than japan.”

Studio Ghibli

in the back of your mind that there is only one way this all ends. Though Jiro simply wants to create beauty with aircraft as the medium, his ultimate design, which finds humble beginnings when he observes the smooth curve of a mackerel bone, creates arguably the most wellknown fighter plane from World War II. Tragedy befalls Jiro in more way than one. Somehow, though, the film maintains a light tone. As in all Studio Ghibli films, there’s a colorful cast of supporting characters and a good amount of light humor. Sometimes the dialogue can be unintentionally obtuse and therefore unintentionally humorous, but perhaps that’s partly due to translation and the differences between Japan and U.S. culture. There are some lackadaisical lulls in the story, but that’s part of the pleasure. We are allowed to observe little slices of life, like a couple falling in love at a picturesque mountain

resort. This lightness of tone juxtaposed against impending destruction is best reflected in the words of French poet Paul Valéry, which the film references many times and also receives its name from. “Le vent se lève ! … Il faut tenter de vivre!” or, in English, “The wind is rising, we must attempt to live!”



*Note: The reviewer watched the subtitled version, and not the dubbed version with an American voice cast.

Mixtape dethroned Mac is back,


trades boyhood for Salad Days


hen you take the road to fame, you either win or you die trying. For the “Game of Thrones” series, a lack of minority actors seems to be preventing victory. In an attempt to attract a more well-rounded audience, HBO released a mixtape called Catch The Throne that features artists of color. There is almost no racial diversity in the first two seasons of the television series, and by the third, the only diverse characters are portrayed as a massive, uncivilized group of slaves happy to receive guidance from a white leader. The show seems to be stuck in an era before the American civil rights movement, casting mostly white or white-passing lead characters. However, the mixtape apparently aims to mend these minority issues. According to an article in The Wall Street Journal, “The goal is to reach out to the show’s urban, ‘multicultural’ audience, a demographic that includes African-Americans and Latinos, and help capture more viewers.” The mixtape tracks revolve around the plot lines and characters of the show, and features artists such as Big Boi and Common. The score to the “Game of Thrones” show is undeniably brilliant, and Catch The Throne uses that to its advantage, sprinkling orchestral melodies throughout each song. The mixtape utilizes George R. R. Martin’s quotes from the show to add depth to the songs, creating an interesting aura for listeners. As the songs begin, the cheesiness only partially distracts the listeners, due to the fact that the tone is primarily set by the classical music and quotes of the show. Throughout each track, rappers begin inserting plot-lines-turned-rhyme, turning the semi-awkward tune into a full-on mess. Most “Game of Thrones” fans would agree that the Khaleesi dragon puns, such as Bodega Bamz’s “spit fire like Khaleesi,” are jokes only true fans can appreciate. While the musical aspects are intriguing, the absolute absurdity of Catch The Throne is overwhelming and usually results in uncomfortable



ac DeMarco is back with an ideal sleepy afternoon soundtrack Salad Days. DeMarco proves once again that he has perfected the cool effortlessness that fans have fallen in love with. Salad Days, his third full-length album, which is scheduled to drop Tuesday, exemplifies DeMarco’s boy-next-door appeal. Tracks like “Blue Boy” are played with a sense of intimacy, as if casually for a friend in his room. Salad Days is heavy with mellow tracks like “Brother” and “Go Easy”, which are sure to put you to sleep, and this time that is not an insult. Think of this as your dreamy background for a midday nap. Thematically, DeMarco acknowledges his fading boyhood and cynicism toward approaching adulthood, yet manages to brush it off lightly with an endearing quality. The album’s opening line sets up its tone: “As I’m getting older chip up on my shoulder, rolling through life to roll over and die.” Perhaps this newfound maturity and drowsy sound are a result of his tireless touring. Comparatively speaking, Salad Days is no standout like II, which projected him to stardom. “My Kind of Woman” or “Ode to Viceroy” are nowhere to be found, but there is a collective feeling of comfort

giggles from listeners. The “Game of Thrones” books are well written, and the show does not disappoint. For a series with so much talent and such a wide fanbase, anything that attempts to ride on its tailcoats will probably be built up more than it deserves. In Catch The Throne’s case, it’s really nothing more than a great disappointment — both musically and as an attempt at inclusivity. “Our multicultural audiences are a very important part of our subscribers, and we don’t want to take them for granted,” Lucinda Martinez, HBO’s senior vice president for multicultural marketing, told The Wall Street Journal. If HBO really is trying to attract minority viewers, perhaps it should try something else — for example, including them in leading and varied roles in the show. For now, only next season will tell how HBO responds to the discussions of diversity launched by “Game of Thrones.” — Follow Christianna Silva @dailywildcat

and connection in the new LP. DeMarco trades some of his trademark playfulness in return for being “one of us.” But ladies, don’t worry, Macky did not trade in his romanticism. There are still tender love ballads like “Let My Baby Stay,” with the lyrics “I was made to love her, been working at it half of my life.” In addition, DeMarco also reveals daring tracks like “Chamber of Reflection” and “Passing Out Pieces,” in which he incorporates an unfamiliar dreamy-psychedelic sound unlike his acoustic II niche. Salad Days showcases a lethargic DeMarco but is still a strong addition to his engaging catalog.

‘Second Son’ comes close to first


Torsten Ward

et me start off by saying that “Infamous 2” was one of the first games I ever earned a platinum trophy in because I just couldn’t stop playing it. I may not have put as many hours into it as I have games like “Skyrim” or “Far Cry 3,” but I vacuumed up the content it had to offer quicker than a Dyson. The same can be said about my experience with “Infamous: Second Son.” The third installment of Sucker Punch’s “Infamous” series starts off with paint cans set to full-auto in the hands of our new hero (or antihero), Delsin Rowe. This charming, denim-wearing punk-rock delinquent has a mischievous but cultured past. However, the real star of the show is Delsin’s “conduit” powers. His recently realized ability to absorb other conduits’ powers quickly earns him the capability to bend smoke at his will. This is where the fun begins.

And it’s never looked better. “Second Son”’s Seattle setting is as flawless as it is gorgeous. The lighting alone is something to marvel at, and each and every explosion and environmental texture is beautiful. It might be safe to say that offline lag is a thing of the past, whether that can be attributed to Sucker Punch’s programmers or the PlayStation 4’s raw processing power. I don’t care as long as I get to keep blowing up everything around me in seamless, stunning HD.

The Story

“Second Son”’s narrative is arguably the weakest point of the game. Not only is the story predictable, it’s a cookie-cutter replica of previous “Infamous” games. We’ve seen it all before: A woman with powers of her own is leader of the Department of Unified Protection, a military-like organization out to demonize and capture all known conduits. Delsin fights back and rescues said conduits, only to end up fighting one in the end over the future of their own kind. This second-rate story could have at least I don’t care who you are or where you’re from — everyone, at some point, has wondered been split up into two differing narratives based what life would be like with superpowers. on each specific karma path, but regardless of These fantasies come to life in “Second Son” what you choose, the result is the same. The karma system isn’t as fleshed-out as it in ways you’ve probably never imagined. Being able to control elements like smoke and neon could be, either. The choices you make are so put you behind the wheel of an unstoppable, blatantly black and white that they practically power-hungry gaming machine. Effortlessly cease to require any real thought. Want to be good? Pick blue. Want gliding from rooftop to to rain fire upon the city rooftop and charging up and watch it burn with the walls of skyscrapers a smile? Pick red. It’s is empowering. Never that simple. before have I played “inFAMOUS: Second Son” The next generation a game with such a system: PlayStation 4 of gaming has promised spectacular sense of advancement in freedom and movement.

how repetitive “Second Son”’s content is. While it’s still fun to go destroy security cameras and capture secret agents with awesome superpowers, the size of this game along with the quality of the gameplay forces me to be critical of how little there really is to do. The number of possibilities for subplots based either upon supporting characters, Delsin’s past or additional conduits are plentiful, but “Second Son” fails to deliver on all accounts. Limited editions of the game include two short DLC missions, one of which uses second-screen technology cleverly and is mostly effective. However, I would argue that content like this should have been included in the game to start with, given how minimal “Second Son”’s variety of content is.

The Verdict I wanted to love “Second Son,” and it turns out that I do. But it isn’t the PlayStationexclusive powerhouse I wanted it to be. As fun

as it is to fly around a detailed Seattle with an arsenal of incredible powers at your fingertips, the lack of things to do with these powers is unfortunate. What could have been the posterchild for next-gen consoles ends up being nothing more or less than a great game with even greater potential. “Infamous: Second Son” is a must-play for any PS4 owners or fans of the original series. This game is a blast and a great way to spend a couple dozen hours. But the fun stops there, as the content ceases to satisfy. However, just as “Infamous” laid the foundation for the incredible improvement that was “Infamous 2,” “Second” Son has set the stage for a possible knockout followup. It’s too early to tell if a sequel is in the works, but I certainly hope “Infamous”’ reign as one of the most fun series out there doesn’t end any time soon. — Follow Torsten Ward @torstenward



Must-add filler courses to put in your shopping cart ASHLEY REID Wait, registration for fall classes is already happening? Even though it’s mid-spring, it’s time to start planning for the upcoming semester. It’s that time of the semester when students wake up at 6 a.m. just to hover over the “enroll” button on UAccess to ensure a fantastic schedule. No need to scour the course catalog for awesome classes or rely on, because we did that for you. Here are our top five favorite general education and elective classes offered at the UA.

Agricultural Education Main 295B, Heritage and Traditions of the University of Arizona

Spoiler alert: singing “Bear Down Arizona” is an essential lesson in this course. The content of the class is based on events, people and heritage of the university. By the end of the semester, you will be able to shout all sorts of Arizona facts from the top of “A” Mountain. It’s pretty much like going on an Arizona Ambassadors tour for every class. Wilbur would approve of adding this to your enrollment shopping cart.

Russian & Slavic Studies 315, Werewolves and Vampires: Slavic Folklore in our Culture

Move over Bella, Edward, Jacob and friends. This class is the hipster version of “Twilight”; it talks about how vampires and werewolves were cool in

Slavic culture way before modern times. Not to mention the course is interwoven with Slavic studies, which isn’t something the average person is exposed to every day in Arizona. You just never know when you’ll need to impress someone with your knowledge of Russian and Slavic folklore.

Music Main 231, Jazz History

Diversity emphasis, Tier 2 Arts credit and all that jazz. The class covers famous jazz artists and gives students a general understanding of musical concepts. Learn how to identify the masterful tunes of Duke Ellington and the raspy voice of Louis Armstrong for a grade. Jay Gatsby would be proud.

What’s your least favorite drink to make? Not a big fan of crazy off-the-wall shots, like “alien secretion” or something like that. Half the time I’ve got to look them up. Regions have so many different names for so many different shots. Kind of the off-the-wall, weirdo party shots are my least favorite to make. Most memorable customer? I had an older gentleman that used to come in everyday and we would kind of talk. His wife was actually … suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and he was here and every day it was like some “Notebook” stuff. He’d go and talk to his wife and he’d have to reintroduce himself everyday, so over the course of two years I built a friendship up with this guy. We just kind of talked a lot. I was going through a hard financial time and he ended up giving me a $5 bill that I still carry around. It was from the ’20s or ’30s. He basically would always talk to me about finance. He gave this to me, it’s 1934, and he told me, ‘Put it in your wallet and if you ever spend it, then you have to change something about your

life.’ Ever since that happened to me, like this last year I bought a house, it just totally changed my life. It was just this weird little thing. Weird, strangest thing you’ve seen go down at the bar? One time I had a group of people come in and we’re pretty calm, like our atmosphere is pretty calm usually most of the time. A girl looked at me, she was with a bunch of her friends on a bachelorette party or something. She was like, “I want to jump right over this bar and dance with you right now.” I didn’t think anything of it and I turned back around and there’s this girl, she’s a little bit bigger than I am, she had jumped over the bar and basically just grabbed me and started swinging me around. I was like, “You can’t be back here, y’know, it’s not OK.” How long have you been bartending? This will be my fourth year. Thunder Canyon the whole time. … Great place to work, and I serve the owner everyday. He comes in, sits down and has a meal. He’s the brew master and everything, too. What’s a drinking trend that you’d like to see go away? Fireball. … I’m a whiskey man, and I’m so upset that somebody has the gall to put cinnamon in my whiskey.

million followers on Twitter. She uploads a new video every Wednesday, a day she dubbed #SexualWednesday. She has capitalized on the popularity of social media, and thus serves as an inspiration for millions of fans looking to strike gold on the Internet. In this medium where success proves difficult for a lot of people, Marbles has built an ever-growing online brand for herself. “Students should be excited to come out and see her because she is an inspiration,” Wildcat Events Board member Kevin Mauerman said. “She has worked hard to achieve the success she has in life, and she is going to share her insights with students. In addition, she is very funny.” The Wildcat Events Board, the largest event planning board on campus, is hosting Marbles. The board plans and hosts dozens of events throughout the year, bringing in speakers and comedians as well as also holding concerts and interactive events like open mic nights and ice skating. To promote Marbles’ visit, the board hosted an Instagram contest using the hashtag #UAJennaMarbles, with the winners receiving two tickets to meet Marbles after the main event. Board members said they expect Friday’s event to be one of the larger events of the semester, as Marbles has a large following of college-aged viewers. “In her videos, Jenna talks about everyday issues in a comical manner that college-aged students can relate to,” Mauerman said. As of Thursday evening, more than 1,700 guests RSVP’d to the event on Facebook. One of them is Austin Pyrek, a chemical engineering junior who is a huge fan of Marble’s videos. “I think my favorite videos are ‘What Disney Movies Taught Me’ and ‘How To Avoid Talking To People You Don’t Want To Talk To,’” Pyrek said. “Her videos are just hilarious. I really like her videos. ... I think everybody does.” By views, Marble’s most popular video is “How to trick people into thinking you’re good looking,” which has been watched by more than 56.6 million people. Her least popular video — from 3 years ago — still has nearly 369.5 thousand views, a number that most YouTubers would be ecstatic about. “She is just very upbeat, relatable and funny,” Pyrek said. “I can’t wait to see her in person.” — Follow Taylor Armosino @tarmosino

artists set up their displays at the Tucson Museum of Art for the Spring Artisan Market on Thursday.

Artisan crafts windows of opportunity UA alumna Sandra Montgomery preserves memory, history through her use of window frames as canvases for her Southwestern inspired art carlos herrera/The Daily Wildcat

(TOP) Sandra Montgomery will be at the Spring Artisan Market at the Tucson Museum of Art on Saturday. Montgomery creates her artwork by painting on old recycled windows and canvas. (RIGHT) Sandra Montgomery and her husband, Rich, set up their display.

andra Montgomery finds inspiration for her art in the majestic desert and mountains of the Southwest. From flowers to native wildlife, her paintings encompass the life of the region. But the medium on which her art is painted is less conventional than her subjects and has a more unique past than your average roll of canvas. A 1940s house in the desert of Tucson might hold what she’s looking for. Or even a 1921 barn on the plains of North Dakota. A simple dilapidated shed in Mexico from the 1950s might do just as well. Montgomery describes her practice as caught between fine art and a craft. This is because she uses a simple beat-up sash window for her canvas, with the size, shape and wear and tear of the frames adding to the work just as much as the paintings she creates. The quest to find these old windows can often be a challenge. “Old wood sash windows are hard to find in Tucson and surrounding areas,” Montgomery said. “We have

leveled most old houses to make room for new housing, or a business plaza.” Montgomery said she loves telling the history of a window when she sells it. People often ask her where she finds the old windows, and she said she constantly has friends and relatives on the lookout for old windows around town. “A friend will call and say, ‘Sandra, I saw a stack of old windows at Stone and Grant!’” she said. “I get down there to see if I can salvage anything.” Once she locates her windows, the work that goes into preparing them requires replacing glass, excessive caulking and tedious sanding. And that’s before the actual painting begins. A self-taught artist from Yuma and a graduate of the UA, Montgomery became finely in tune with the natural beauty of the landscape around her. Starting her business in 2003 by mixing her passions of painting and gardening, she began simply by painting the desert and the flowers in her garden. Since then, her business has expanded. Customers contact her from as far off as Chicago, placing

She prides herself on not judge a book by its not having lost cover; perhaps here it’s a window yet acceptable to judge a through mail picture by its frame. orders. Montgomery said After her father one of the best parts of was awarded her work is meeting the a homestead people she shows her in Yuma in work to, and she will the late 1940s, have an opportunity Montgomery to do just that this became weekend at the Spring accustomed Artisan Market at the to wide-open Tucson Museum of Art. spaces.

than eight at a show, though she does have a portfolio book of her paintings to allow viewers a glance into her world. Even after over a decade of her window-painting excursions, Montgomery still remains vigilant in her artistic pursuit for the best. “Every artist continues to learn and change,” Montgomery said. “I stay open to other artists’ work, their style, color use, just to hone my own eye. Plus I’ll take a class now and again to experience something new.” Thanks to Montgomery, a barn window that braved the harsh North Dakota winters season after season can have the image of its endurance forever painted onto it. Or a young boy who would look out each morning through the front window into his mother’s prized garden can regain a treasured glimpse of his youth. For Montgomery, she sees no end in sight to her windows into the soul. “Until I can’t find any more windows, I continue on,” she said. — Follow Daniel Burkart @DailyWildcat

Honorable O’Connor talks in Tucson


Kevin Reagan

t was 84 years ago this week that Ada Mae Day traveled 200 miles east to El Paso and gave birth to a baby girl named Sandra. Fifty-one years later, that baby grew up to become the first woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court. The journey in between and after contained its fair share of obstacles, some of which Sandra Day O’Connor is expected to share in an interview with retired Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Stanley Feldman this Sunday night at the Fox Tucson Theatre. In what is expected to be the first of many free events hosted by the Sunday Evening Forum, O’Connor is joining Feldman in an open discussion of her 24-year tenure on the U.S. Supreme Court and on the current climate of our nation’s judiciary system. “She was a really great jurist who understood how to compromise and bring people together to make good changes,” said Anne Hameroff, a retired lawyer and board member of the Sunday Evening Forum. Hameroff said that topics such as women in law, judiciary independence and the presence of media in courtrooms will likely be discussed during the interview. Since former President Ronald Reagan appointed O’Connor to the Court in 1981, she’s been a crucial swing vote in a number of high-profile cases concerning abortion, religious freedom, capital punishment and the presidential election of former President George W. Bush. O’Connor disregarded her lifelong ties to the Republican Party by siding with her more liberal-minded colleagues on numerous occasions. McClatchy Tribune The 2003 case of Grutter v. Bollinger had O’Connor tipping the majority in favor of the Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor celebrated her 84th birthday on Wednesday.

Arizona overcame aggressive San Diego State to win 70-64, earning Arizona’s 10th Elite Eight appearance, its second in the last four years LUKE DELLA ANAHEIM, Calif. — Nick Johnson scored 15 out of the Wildcats’ last 16 points to beat San Diego State 70-64 in the Sweet Sixteen at the Honda Center on Thursday night. But Johnson, the Pac-12 Conference’s Player of the Year, was just 2:44 away from going home and being held scoreless in Arizona’s most tightly contested game of the season. “That was the most physical, hard-fought game of the season for us,” Arizona head coach Sean Miller said. “San Diego State really set the tone on how the game was going to be played.” Though Johnson’s final 14 points — nine of which came at the free throw line — were the key to the game in the box score, it was the physical play by the Wildcats’ junior point guard T.J. McConnell that eventually ignited Johnson to go on that final offensive run. McConnell, who had to dive to the ground to secure the steal, then passed it to an open sophomore guard Gabe York, who found Johnson streaking to the hoop for his first points of the game. “That was the play of the game,” York said. Johnson finished with 15 points on 2-for-12 shooting from the field, but he made all 10 free throws he took. “Coach, the whole coaching staff, all the team, they’re great with keeping me up,” Johnson said. “When I hit one shot, it just started to feel a little better.” Johnson’s struggles only aggravated what was already a frustrating night for the Wildcats as whole. From the opening possession, the Aztecs’ defense pressured Arizona with a full-court press. The overwhelming pressure screwed with Arizona’s tempo and allowed SDSU to be the

aggressor for most of the game. “The aggressor wins in basketball all the time, no matter what” Arizona freshman forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson said. “Our coaches tell us to keep poised and keep playing hard and eventually they’ll break.” The Wildcats maintained ball control throughout most of the game and only had eight turnovers in the entire game. But as a team Arizona couldn’t find the bottom of the net. It made just 10 of its 27 shot attempts in the first half. The pressure by SDSU wasn’t just on defense, but also offense. Aztec big man Josh Davis thrashed Arizona with six rebounds in the first 10 minutes of Thursday’s game. “It kind of stunned us a little bit how hard they were rebounding at the beginning,” Johnson said. But the Aztecs finished the game with 18 second-chance points, after getting an offensive rebound. Davis finished the game with 14 rebounds, six of which were offensive. “When you give someone so many second chance points it’s hard to contain a team,”

Arizona sophomore center Kaleb Tarczewski said. “[Davis] is quick, crafty and he’s strong— he’s a great basketball player.” But Arizona stuck to their game plan and stuck to their leader. They kept attacking SDSU on offense and defense and kept giving Johnson the opportunity to score until eventually SDSU broke. “We definitely notice when a team is tired,” Hollis-Jefferson said. “When they’re huffing and puffing, they have their hands on their hips or head — that’s when it’s time to go in for the kill.” Arizona hung on throughout the game and climbed its way back by matching SDSU’s intensity. After McConnell’s steal with 2:44 left in the game, the Aztecs could no longer hang on and could no longer contain Johnson. “The beginning of the game, giving up that many second shots, you don’t get to this level without having that toughness and resolve that we have,” Miller said. “Finding a way, being tough-minded and almost willing our way to the finish line.”

Roberto PaynE Fresh off three wins against Oregon State, the No. 9 Arizona softball team takes to the road for a matchup with its arch-rival, the No. 8 ASU Sun Devils. The Wildcats (28-6, 3-3 Pac-12) used the recent home stand to regroup after losing the first three conference games against UCLA. After scoring four runs over the three-game series with UCLA, Arizona broke out by putting up 36 runs on the scoreboard in the Oregon State series. The 36 runs were the highest Arizona runs scored in a three-game series for the season. The previous high was 35 runs scored in the season opening three-game series against Southern Mississippi. Leading the offensive revival was a bevy of home runs coming from all over the batting order. Junior utility Hallie Wilson hit a home run in each game against Oregon State to go along with her 11 runs batted in throughout the series. Wilson said the team facing ASU this weekend is not the same one that faced UCLA last weekend.

“Since that UCLA series, we’ve had a different mindset,” Wilson said. “We grew and we learned [that] pitching in the Pac-12 is at an entirely different level. We learned our weaknesses and our strengths, and how to counteract.” As the No. 8-ranked team in the nation, the Sun Devils possess a potent combination of offense and pitching that could be trouble for the Wildcats. Leading ASU (305, 4-2) on the mound is the pitching duo of Mackenzie Popescue and Dallas Escobedo. — Hallie Wilson, The duo is a combined junior utlility 28-5 on the season. Arizona head coach Mike Candrea said the Wildcats know what they will be facing and will look to improve upon their last few games. “If we’re moving the ball, if we’re making solid contact, then it’s just a matter of time,” Candrea said. “That’s the key for me.”

“We grew and we learned pitching in the pac-12 is at an entirely different level.”

James Farris (36) pitched the entirety of the Arizona baseball team’s 12-1 victory over Washington State on March 14 at Hi Corbett Field. Arizona will turn to its ace to try to end its losing streak.

Rose Valenzuela The Arizona baseball team will look to get back on track when it hosts No. 6 Oregon State this weekend. The Wildcats have won one Pac-12 conference game. Arizona hosts the Beavers on Friday at 7 p.m., Saturday at 4 p.m. and Sunday at noon at Hi Corbett Field. All three games will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Networks. Arizona (11-16, 1-5 Pac-12) was swept by ASU (13-10, 3-3) in Tempe, Ariz., on Wednesday after a rough outing in the sixth inning. Although head coach Andy Lopez and the players have mentioned throughout the season that the reason for their losses is execution of the offense, this time it was defense. On Friday, Arizona ace James Farris (4-1, 3.19 ERA) returns to the mound after facing Washington on March 21. Farris pitched five innings, allowing seven hits and seven

runs with 94 pitches. Arizona lost all three games of last year’s series in Corvallis, Ore. Farris was able to pitch 5.2 innings, allowing six hits and four runs during the second game of the series, when the Beavers defeated the Wildcats 4-3. Oregon State (19-5, 4-2) will face Arizona after losing its last conference series against ASU. The Beavers won the first game of the series, but the Sun Devils were able to take the last two games in Corvallis. The probable starter who will face Arizona today is senior left-handed pitcher Ben Wetzler (4-0, 0.59 ERA). Wetzler pitched 4.2 innings during the last game of the series last year, allowing two hits and only one run on 83 pitches.

Sand volleyball travels to Phoenix Tyler Keckeisen Arizona sand volleyball looks to end its two-match losing skid when it plays Grand Canyon on Friday at noon, with another match at 2:30 p.m. against Nebraska. Both matches will be held in Phoenix at Grand Canyon University. Arizona (5-2) won a close 3-2 match against Grand Canyon in their first match-up, earlier this month. The Wildcats have yet to play Nebraska this season, but did get a glimpse of how the Cornhuskers perform in pairs competition in Hawaii last weekend. One of Nebraska’s duos finished first overall. After team play ends today, Arizona will get its second opportunity in pairs competition the following day. Arizona head coach Steve Walker said his players can’t get frustrated if success does not happen early on in matches. In the two losses last weekend, Arizona fell behind early and then started to rush the fundamentals.

McKenna WITT (21) and Madison Witt (23) won 21-12, 21-12 in Arizona’s 5-0 win over the Green Wave on March 15 at home. The Wildcats will put their undefeated record in Arizona on the line this weekend at Grand Canyon.

“Both Hawaii and USC were able sustain longer rallies, and read us a little bit better,” Walker said. “That caused us to do things that were very uncharacteristic by making

the unforced errors we should not be making. We tried to terminate the rallies way too soon.” The Wildcats also had trouble in the side-out game in the two

losses. Walker said the Wildcats were not in a good position to pass the ball accurately when the serving was more aggressive. “Our players failed to move well

and adjust to the more challenging serves after the ball was contacted off the server’s hand,” Walker said. “From a first contact standpoint, our team was not doing a good job of pushing the ball closer to the net in order to put more pressure on the defense.” Walker said there is a good and bad side of the court in beach volleyball. So when competition heats up again Friday as it did last weekend, Walker wants his players to have more faith in their own skills when dealing with the different “sides.” “When the wind is in your face and coming toward you, that tends to be the good side as you can serve more aggressively,” Walker said. “At times we would be down early and then try to rush things when switching to the bad side. The players were not confident and because of that, the side-out was off, and we would not give ourselves a chance to win late in the game.”

Arizona long jumper Lisanne Hagens competes for the women’s team at the Willie Williams Classic meet Friday night. The Wildcats travel to ASU this weekend.

Last week Arizona’s senior Lawi Lalang had another appearance in The Bowerman Watch List. He has now been named to the watch list 20 times. Lalang now is the alltime leader in career appearances for men in its Post-NCAA Indoor Championships edition. The Wildcats aren’t the only Pac12 school ranked in the Top-25. On the women’s side, seven other schools are ranked. No. 2 Oregon is the highest ranked Pac-12 school. For the men, six other Pac-12 schools are ranked.
