UA President Robert Shelton fist-bumps hip-hop dancers of the UA Dance Ensemble after their performances for the celebration of the university’s 125th birthday on Tuesday. The dancers’ varying acts were representing different eras of the school’s history, from the 1910s through World War II up to present day.

UA celebrates 125th birthday By Rodney Haas ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

In 1885 C.C Stevens was sent to Prescott to win Tucson the territorial capital. But when the capital was awarded to Prescott, the next best thing was an insane asylum. The last thing people in Tucson wanted was a university. The asylum came with a $100,000 allocation whereas the university only had a $25,000 allocation. In the end, Phoenix was awarded the asylum and Tucson was settled with the university. When Stevens returned he was greeted with a shower of ripe eggs, rotten vegetables and a dead cat. Now, 125 years later the UA is home to 38,000 students and in 2004

We just need to get leaders in this state to understand that investing in higher education is an investment in the future. Just as the gamblers and the saloon owner didn’t realize back a 125 years ago.

— Robert Shelton President of the University of Arizona

the university provides for close to 40,000 jobs and had an economic impact of $2.1 billion — far cry from the original $25,000 — according to reports released by the Office of Economic and Policy Analysis. “It started with humble beginnings with three students and one building and look where we are now,” Provost Meredith Hay said. To get the university off the ground, the city had to come up with the land, which was donated by two gamblers and a saloonkeeper. It consisted of 40 acres where Old Main sits today. “I like the fact that this university got started by gamblers and a saloon keeper,” UA president Robert Shelton told a crowd that gathered in front of Old Main to celebrate the UA’s 125th birthday Thursday. “I think in their day,

they epitomized the sprit that we call entrepreneurship. They epitomized what we call persistance so we have a lot of history and a lot of personality that we can celebrate because we’re still community of entrepreneurs and risk-takers.” Classes began in 1891 and consisted of 32 students. Shelton described higher education then as more of a continuation of the same themes that were in high school and didn’t engage in the research that university does today. Shelton compared the UA’s past struggles to those of today. “We just need to get leaders in this state to understand that investing in higher education is an investment in the future. Just as the gamblers and the saloon owner didn’t realize back a 125 years ago,” Shelton said.

ASUA primary voting kicks off By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The Associated Students of the University of Arizona primary elections began early Tuesday morning at 8 and will continue until 8 Wednesday night. Students can vote either online or at one of three polling stations around campus: inside the Student Union Memorial Center, at the Eller College of Management or at the Student Recreation Center. All candidates who started the process in February have made it onto the ballot, and the suspected write-in candidate from last month is not included in the primary election voting. It is unclear whether they will be included in the general

election vote on March 9 and 10. Once voting ends at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, ASUA will announce the winners at an election results show in the SUMC’s Kiva Room. Only authorized personnel can access the results before the show, said ASUA Elections Commissioner Justine Piscitello. These primaries show each candidate where he or she stands in the election polls, said Piscitello. But the primaries might not be fully representative. Some students knew of the primaries through various media but were unsure about voting. “Some people just don’t pay attention,” said Christina Le, an economics sophomore. “I mean, I’m sure a lot of

UA surgery professor Dr. David Armstrong will be recognized with the highest honor in the field of amputation prevention and wound healing by the American Diabetes Association. “It’s a big award — it’s one of the biggest awards in diabetes, so it’s really an honor for somebody in our unit to get it, especially someone who’s not a endocrinologist or a foot surgeon,” said Dr. Joe Mills, University Medical Center chief of the Division of Vascular Surgery, UA surgery professor and codirector of UA’s Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance. Armstrong, a professor of surgery and director of the UA’s Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance, recently won the Roger Pecoraro award. “I look at this as more of a nod to my mentors rather than as a specific personal honor,”Armstrong said. He said he grew up around podiatry, the study of the ankle, foot, and lower leg, spending time at his dad’s office. “I will be receiving this award about six years to the day after he passed. So, I suppose that it belongs with him and the rest of the folks that guided and continue to guide me,”Armstrong said. Dr. Rainer Gruessner, UA professor of surgery and immunology and surgery department chairman, and Mills also helped him succeed, Armstrong said. Armstrong was invited to be on the Oprah Winfrey Show, according to Gruessner. “The reason they picked him is (the Oprah Show) had contacted American Diabetes Association and the World Health Organization about wound healing and diabetic patients, and they were told that the person to talk to is Dr. Armstrong in Tucson,” he said. He will receive the award in June at the American Diabetes Association’s symposium in Orlando, Fla. According to members of the UA surgery department, Armstrong has published more peer-reviewed works than anyone in his field of podiatry. He has spoken in more than 40 countries and mentored other leaders in the field, such as Dr. Lee Rogers, associate director of the Amputation Prevention Center at Valley Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles. “Professor Armstrong is the world’s leader in amputation prevention. There is no one more deserving of this award, and I am humbled by the task of giving it to him,” Rogers said in a press release. DOCTOR, page A3

I like Batman, but I think that’s just because I like the logo. I’m kind of neutral on the subject. And, his voice. Batman’s pretty cool. And, Superman, too, because he can fly.

Arizona Daily Wildcat Vol. 103, Issue 109

So you like the feel of Batman, but you like the powers of Superman? Exactly, Batman’s lack of superpowers is a drawback. If you were a superhero, what power would you have? Oh, teleportation. For sure. That would be a sweet superpower. Yeah. Because you don’t know how long flying takes. It’s messy. What would be your superhero name? Zap? Yeah! I like that. Or Zoom. Is Zoom taken?

Smithsonian turns down suit worn by O.J. Simpson LOS ANGELES — What O.J. Simpson wore when he was acquitted in 1995 of murdering his ex-wife and her friend was the suit seen around the world during one of the most watched televised moments in history. But the Smithsonian Institution, America’s repository of historical artifacts, rejected it Tuesday as inappropriate for their collection. Announcement of the museum’s snub came the morning after a California judge approved the donation as the solution to a 13-year court battle over the carefully tailored tan suit, white shirt and yellow and tan tie.

The ensemble has been held by Simpson’s former sports agent, Mike Gilbert. Fred Goldman, the father of the man Simpson was accused of killing in 1994, had been fighting Gilbert for the suit, which Simpson has said was stolen from him. The suit was indirectly responsible for Simpson’s current predicament: The former NFL star is imprisoned in Nevada for a bungled effort to reclaim items of his memorabilia from a Las Vegas hotel room. Simpson had been told the suit was in

the room and was being offered for sale, along with other artifacts of his life. It turned out the suit wasn’t there. The Smithsonian announced its decision with a terse announcement on its Web site. “The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History will not be collecting O.J. Simpson’s suit,” it said. “The decision was made by the museum’s curators together with the director.” Gilbert, who has the suit in storage, said he was disappointed with the decision. —The Associated Press

Woods back from family counseling

Spandex. Cape. Not as revealing as Wonder Woman’s or Batgirl’s. Gold, probably.

Guy 1: She lost her panties after sex, and I found them in my pocket.

All gold? Or gold accents?

Guy 2: You should have pinned them to McGrouther’s wall.

At least sparkly. Sparkly for sure. And, a cape and spandex.

Guy 1: That was the plan but she wants them back.

I think that fits the name really well. If I hear that there’s a superhero named Zap, I want that superhero to be wearing something sparkly. All right, if they made a comic or movie about you, who would play your love interest? Michael Cera. I like Michael Cera. So, you’d be Zap, dressed in all gold and, in your personal life, you’d be chasing Michael Cera? Yes. I would watch this movie. Me too. I like where this is going.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Tiger Woods is back at home after a week of family counseling in Arizona and is trying to get into a routine that includes golf and fitness, a person with knowledge of his schedule said Tuesday. Woods returned to his home near Orlando on Saturday and has been hitting balls on the range at Isleworth, not far from where he ran his SUV into a tree in a middle-of-the-night accident on Nov. 27 that set off revelations of his extramarital affairs. The person, who spoke on conditions of anonymity because only Tiger Woods Woods is authorized to release information about his schedule, said there is still no timetable for golf’s No. 1 player to return to competition. Woods was photographed hitting golf balls at Isleworth on Feb. 18, the day before he ended nearly three months of silence by speaking to a small group of associates in a 13 1/2-minute statement that was televised around the world. Those photos of Woods were arranged to counter the paparazzi trying to follow his every move since Thanksgiving. Woods has not practiced in earnest since winning the Australian Masters in Melbourne on Nov. 15 for his 82nd victory worldwide. News of him getting back into a routine is sure to begin speculation when he might return to the PGA Tour. Woods announced on Dec. 4 that he was taking an“indefinite break”to try to salvage his marriage. “I do plan to return to golf one day, I just don’t know when that day will be,”Woods said Feb. 19 in his statement at Sawgrass. “I don’t rule out that it will be this year.” Woods said he was leaving the next day for more therapy, without saying what kind. The person who spoke to The Associated Press said he went to Arizona for a week of family and marriage counseling with his wife, Elin. Woods said at Sawgrass of his infidelity, “As Elin pointed out to me, my real apology to her will not come in the form of words; it will come from my behavior over time. We have a lot to discuss; however, what we say to each other will remain between the two of us.” Woods is not likely to play next week in the World Golf Championship at Doral, where he has won three times. His next possibility on the PGA Tour is the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, where he is the defending champion and a six-time winner. The Masters, which Woods has played every year since 1995, would follow. Augusta National officials have not indicated whether they expect Woods to compete. — The Associated Press

Everyone has a

Jude Fernado

Story Sri Lanka influences student’s life By Laura Donovan Arizona Daily Wildcat “Everyone has a story” is a weekly segment in the Arizona Daily Wildcat that aims to tell the story of an interesting person on the UA campus. This week, we’ve interviewed Jude Fernando, a mechanical engineering senior with Sri Lankan roots.

“I like that everything’s simpler in Sri Lanka. In the United States, you see dozens of different types of cereal in the cereal aisle. In Sri Lanka, there are maybe two or three choices. Do we really need five kinds of Cocoa Puffs?” - Jude Fernando, mechanical engineering senior His father was born and raised in Sri Lanka, about 20 miles off the southern coast of India. Jude Fernando was raised familiar with Sri Lankan culture. He has lived in California, Kingman, Ariz. and Lake Havasu City, Ariz. Though he never lived in Sri Lanka, he visited the country six times. “My dad’s parents owned a coconut plantation in Sri Lanka, so that’s where he grew up,” Fernando said.“Whenever I go to visit, it’s always fun to pluck the coconuts from the trees.” Fernando uses a hook to pull the coconuts from the trees. “When they fall down, you better make sure you’re not in the way. The coconuts will hurt if they land on you, they’re coming from high up in the air,” Fernando said, adding that coconuts weigh 10 to 15 pounds each. The first time Fernando went to Sri Lanka, he was an infant. When he was 2 years old, he stayed in Sri Lanka for four months and learned the native language, Singhalese,around the same time he learned English. Fernando still knows Singhalese pronunciation but has mostly forgotten the language. His father still speaks Singhalese to friends. Fernando said that his father was successful in bringing Sri Lankan values and cultural experiences into the family. “Education is important in Sri Lanka,” Fernando said. “My father made sure that we put full effort

into our education. If you didn’t do well, he was OK with it as long as you were working your hardest.” Fernando went to a Montessori school in Sri Lanka during his fourmonth visit. “It’s kind of like a nursery kindergarten, and it was really neat,” Fernando said. “We had a lot of time to play outside, where no toys were allowed. We got to make our own fun.” Fernando has vague memories of his early years in Sri Lanka but has more vivid memories of his later visits, during which he visited 2,000-yearold ruins. “Traveling in Sri Lanka is an adventure by itself,” Fernando said. “A 60-mile outing might be a fouror five-hour trip because you have to change buses and go a lot slower, so it will take a longer time than it would in the United States.” Fernando says he feels at home in Sri Lanka because of the food, tropics, jungle and family, but he prefers the work opportunities in the United States. “There’s a little bit of corruption over in Sri Lanka,” he said. “Day-today life is a lot easier in the States,” Fernando said. At the end of the day, Fernando prefers simplicity to complication.

Do you know have an interesting story you’d like to share with the Daily Wildcat? Let us know! E-mail us at if you’d be interested in sharing your story. “I like that everything’s simpler in Sri Lanka,” Fernando said. “In the United States, you see dozens of different types of cereal in the cereal aisle. In Sri Lanka, there are maybe two or three choices. Do we really need five kinds of Cocoa Puffs?” Fernando hopes to incorporate his Sri Lankan background into his future family’s life. “Lots of people in this country don’t have much outside of the United States,” Fernando said. “It would be neat to give the same kind of cultural exposure to my family.”

Saudi Arabia, Dubai next stops for amputation knowledge

“Our SALSA (Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance) team … has been able to take the ‘Toe and Flow’ concept of marrying podiatric surgery with vascular surgery to a new level,” said Armstrong in a Gmail chat from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Monday. “In fact, we’ve been able to cut the number of high level amputations in persons with diabetes in half. I think we need to keep up this work and to try to ‘spread the SALSA’ nationwide and worldwide.” He said that was part of the reason he was in Saudi Arabia and had been in Dubai earlier this week. “The rate of diabetes here is in excAess of one in four of the Saudi population. In fact, I just met with the health ministry and members of the royal family to better project this message,” Armstrong said. “There is an amputation performed around the world every 30 seconds. Eight in 10 of these amputations is preventable. We can really make a difference.”

AZ may criminalize presence of illegal immigrants in state The Associated Press PHOENIX — Over the past several years, immigration hard-liners at the Arizona Legislature persuaded their colleagues to criminalize the presence of illegal border-crossers in the state and ban soft immigration policies in police agencies — only to be thwarted by vetoes from a Democratic governor. This year, their prospects have improved. A proposal to draw local police deeper into the fight against illegal immigration has momentum, and even opponents expect the new Republican governor to sign off on the changes. The proposal would make Arizona the only state to criminalize the presence of illegal immigrants through an expansion of its trespassing law. It also would require police to try to determine people’s immigration status when there’s reasonable suspicion they are in the country illegally. An estimated 460,000 illegal immigrants live in the state. “The greatest threat to our

neighborhoods is the illegal alien invasion,” said Sen. Russell Pearce, R - Mesa, sponsor of the proposal, explaining that some illegal immigrants who are criminals bring violence and other crimes to the United States. Supporters say the new rules are needed because the federal government has done a lousy job of trying seal the border and crack down on immigrants in the country’s interior. Opponents say such new duties would be costly and lead to racial profiling. The proposal passed the Senate two weeks ago, and a similar bill could come to a vote of the full House as early as this week. Paul Senseman, spokesman for Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, said the governor doesn’t comment on pending legislation but generally supports pragmatic immigration laws. Her predecessor, Janet Napolitano, a Democrat, vetoed similar proposals. Many of the state’s local police bosses have long resisted suggestions

that their officers conduct day-to-day immigration enforcement, saying it would distract them from investigating other crimes and sow distrust among immigrants, who might not help officers investigating crimes because they fear being sent home. “We are not anti-immigration enforcement,” said Kingman Police Chief Robert DeVries, who opposes the bill. “We are just concerned about some of the responsibilities that are being pushed on us and how it affects our ability to provide day-to-day services in our communities.” Immigrant rights advocates are especially concerned about the trespassing expansion, saying it would inevitably lead to hassles for U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who would be approached by police because of their skin color. “Bills like this that cast a net so wide are guaranteed to trap U.S. citizens,” said Jennifer Allen, director of the Border Action Network, an immigrant rights group based in southern Arizona.

Guest Column Student leaders: Restore the referendum


Anna Swenson Opinions Editor 520•621•7581


he Arizona Board of Regents’ annual tuition hearing is a well-worn university tradition. Presidents point at the economy and announce new tuition increases. Students point at administrator salaries and cry,“Too high!”Regents point at Phoenix and cry,“No budget!”But this year, there was something new: President Robert Shelton’s tuition proposal, padded with $664 in new fees. Unfortunately, Shelton’s fee proposal subverts a more important university tradition: student votes on student fees. When it comes to tuition, students have never had much say. Tuition has increased like clockwork every year for the past fifteen years. But when it comes to fees, that hasn't always been the case. Four years ago, there was a strong presumption that students had a right to vote on new nonacademic fees in free and fair elections. Between 1985 and 2006, every single fee approved by the Board of Regents had to survive a student vote. With the exception of a directly academic IT/library fee in 2006, the Regents still respected your right to vote: In 2006, both the Student Unions Fee and the Rec Center fee extension were sent to referenda. Students voted for fees they wanted and voted down those they did not. This is how democracy works. But when UA administrators didn't get what they wanted, they decided it would be easier to simply bypass the ballot altogether. Administrators used to use surveys to supplement elections. Back in 1997, the UA hired an outside firm to estimate student support for a union fee, in order to avoid any conflict of interest. As Dean of Students Melissa Vito put it, a third-party survey“is objective, because it's not us doing it.”The survey found that 54 percent of students supported the fee. But in a vote, 71.8 percent of students opposed it. In 2004, a survey said 84 percent of students would support a student activity fee. But in a vote 56.6 percent of students opposed it. In 2006, a survey said 72 percent of students would support a student union fee. But in a vote, 70.3 percent of students opposed it. Now, administrators use surveys to supplant elections. What's worse, they don't even bother to avoid conflicts of interest or ensure objectivity. Every survey presented to the Regents this week was conducted by the feeseekers themselves. Most of us understand the difference between a survey and an election. We don't let Gallup choose the president, and Zogby won't determine the fate of Governor Jan Brewer's sales tax increase. But over the last four years, your student leaders have allowed administrators to replace real democracy with rule by survey. It's no surprise. After all, they've been allocated $787,500 from the Student Services Fee — nevermind that they never gave students a chance to vote on it. But whatever good these programs may do is outweighed by their corrosive effect on student participation in the fee-making process. When student leaders accept unapproved fee money, they deny students their historic right to determine where their money will go. The explosion in fees is not just the fault of university apparatchiks: Elected student leaders are equally complicit. Students can't fire university administrators. But they can and should choose student leaders who will respect their right to vote. The Regents are required by law to “consider the results of organized student referenda” on fees. When student leaders don't bother to organize student votes, they are part of the broken fee process. There's an easy way to fix the process: restore the referendum. Student leaders should require new fees to go before a student vote, as they have historically, and as they do at other universities in Arizona. We hope that student government will respect students rights and make these changes on their own. Otherwise, they will continue to fail the student body they purport to represent.

MAILBAG Letters to the editor I want to express my upmost appreciation and respect for your participation in Monday’s tuition hearing with the Arizona Board of Regents. It is clearly evident by the overwhelming attendance that the students at the UA are not only passionate, but also aware of the importance of advocating for an affordable and accessible quality higher education. I want to congratulate you for having the highest student representation across the state, requiring two overflow spaces in addition to the screening room. As a student leader, I am moved by the courage that was displayed by the students who shared their personal stories. Your activism has ensured that the voices of students at the UA, and across the state, will be heard by our Regents and university leadership. For those students who did not have the opportunity to speak, I ask that you would voice your concerns by either contacting the Board of Regents directly, or by outreaching to me by email. I encourage you to continue your efforts by joining me at next week’s ABOR Tuition Setting, March 11 and 12 in the Grand Ballroom of the Student Union Memorial Center.

On ‘Don’t drink the jungle juice,’ March 1 This article says much about the state of sexual assault concerns today. “Should the fact that she willingly got herself into an advanced state of inebriation prevent her from complaining about anything that happened to her while she was in that state?” The error here is that this statement is that it is based upon the presumption that the sex happened *to* her. Did it happen *to* her, or did she initiate it? And remember: There are a variety of ways to initiate it. The hunter that traps is no less a hunter than the hunter who pursues. And if she’s too intoxicated to remember whether or not she consented, how can she remember that she didn’t initiate the sex? And if being intoxicated negates any form of consent whatsoever, why are men the only ones to blame when both are intoxicated, when either person could have initiated it? If both are intoxicated, did they rape each other? Should they both go to prison for 20 years? “No matter what the state of the victim

when the alleged act occurred, a woman or a man should not be shamed by society for being sexually assaulted.” I agree with this statement. A word of caution, however, when using these kinds of defenses: I often see it said that pointing out that a woman getting drunk or wearing a short skirt, once she made a rape allegation, is “victim-blaming.” But to make the allegation that someone is victim-blaming, they must first assume that the rape allegation is 100% true. Dressing promiscuously or getting sleazy with someone is not an invitation to nonconsensual sex (rape), as some say; dressing promiscuously is an invitation to the opposite: sexual attention. That does not mean that anyone who dresses promiscuously is lying about rape; it just means that, in he-said-she-said cases, dressing promiscuously is more indicative of consent than nonconsent, and that if there is no other evidence we just have to wash our hands of the case. In such a case, automatically assuming the woman is the victim of rape would be no fairer than automatically assuming the man is the victim of a false allegation. While it is good that society shows concern with rape victims, society should also be aware of the double-bind it often puts men in. Doublestandards and vague redefinitions of sexual assault that unnecessarily broaden the definition of rape not only trivialize the experiences of rape victims but also generate a sullen resentment among men, who often feel like they are being backed into a corner. Furthermore, let’s be honest: A significant number of women purposefully get intoxicated to lower their inhibitions, and it is unfair to punish men for this whenever the woman changes her mind the next day — especially when the men are intoxicated as well. I would wager that very few women actually get so wasted (and unintentionally so) that they cannot give consent in some form, while at one and the same time their partner is completely conscious of their actions.

ASA holds Regents to ‘Arizona’s Promise’

tanding in the back of the crowded room at Predictable tuition is not a new concept to the Arizona State University’s Memorial Union Arizona university system. Northern Arizona was intense. Before my eyes, I was watching University’s President John Haeger adopted the tuition increase yet again at all three of Arizona’s model first, embracing a zero percent tuition increase public universities. It hurt to see my work as part of for returning Lumberjacks. President Michael Crow the Arizona Students’Association to of ASU followed suit, promising a make higher education in Arizona five percent increase for returning more affordable and accessible made Sun Devils.

The new bill will

be $8,972, not including pertinent program fees and differential tuition. Students have been left speechless. Media reports have called the proposed tuition hikes “sharp,”and the voice of Arizona’s 120,000 university students agrees. That is why I’m proud that the ASA Board of Directors recently endorsed a statewide tuition proposal calling for Regents and administrators to keep“Arizona’s Promise.” Our stance, dubbed“Arizona’s Promise,”supports the efforts of respective student governments to work collaboratively with university administrators to voice student opinion in the development of tuition and fee proposals, encourages Regents to develop sound tuition policy that works to make sure higher education in Arizona is affordable and accessible, and promotes the accountability and predictability efforts adopted by Regents for all three universities. The statewide plan revolves around affordability, transparency and shared governance. Though predictability is a means and an important factor leading to affordable tuition, it does not guarantee affordability. That is why ASA encourages Regents to adopt policy which ties tuition adjustments to median family income in Arizona, not just national competitive rankings. This is especially critical for students and families in these tough economic times. Finally, the students’ proposal reaffirms the importance of shared governance so that, as stu-

dents become larger investors in our universities, students should be consulted and student support garnered for all tuition and fee proposals, including differential tuition and program fees. ASA has been fortunate to build a strong student voice at the Regent level, and appreciate efforts by university administration to incorporate that voice at the campus level. We hope this cooperative spirit continues as all higher education stakeholders weather this economic storm through the 2012“cliff”year, when federal stimulus monies are depleted. This important piece is emboldened by a commitment by ASA in this statewide student proposal to work with Regents and the universities to identify stable sources of revenue to guarantee the promise of education that will strengthen and diversify Arizona’s economy. I am especially excited and passionate about these endeavors because the Arizona State Legislature’s divestment in higher education has put an undue burden on Arizona students and families. That fight was a main reason I began working on this issue two years ago with ASA and I know that by keeping“Arizona’s Promise,”we can work to reprioritize higher education in Arizona that is affordable and accessible. —Guest columnist Elma Delic is a journalism senior and board chair of the Arizona Students’ Association.

policebeat By Bridgette Doran Arizona Daily Wildcat

Make that a double

A University of Arizona Police Department officer saw a man stumbling and struggling to get into the Coronado Residence Hall on Friday at 10:20 p.m. The officer stopped to perform a welfare check because the man was unable to stand on his own and was swaying. When the officer asked if the man needed any medical help, the man said no. The officer reported the man had watery, bloodshot eyes, smelled of alcohol and had 11 hash marks on his left arm. The man was taken by the officer and read his rights. He stated that he had only had two beers, and he had gotten the alcohol from a room in Coronado but did not know which floor or room number. The officer asked if the man was from Tucson.The man said he was from Maricopa County. He gave the officer several phone numbers, but none of them were operational. After the man was unable to give a valid address, telephone number or the name of the person with whom he was staying, he was arrested for minor in possession. The officer transported the man to the Pima County Juvenile Court and issued the man a citation. At the court, the man refused medical help from personnel and then gave the officer the name of a woman he was staying with in Coronado. When the officer brought the man back to Coronado, he went up to the room of the woman, who said she would take responsibility for the man. As the officer knocked on the door, he could hear people inside whispering and shuffling things around. He continued to knock on the door for more than five minutes as he heard bottles knocking together. Eventually the woman came to the door and tried to convince the officer that she could not hear the officer at the door because she was in the bathroom. The woman finally admitted that she did not open the door because she“is a good girl and didn’t want to get into trouble.� The officer noticed the woman was showing signs of intoxication and asked her to get whatever she had been drinking. The woman pulled a half-full 750-milliliter bottle of Three Olives vodka and a half-full 750-milliliter bottle of Ketel One vodka out of the bathroom. She stated the man was staying with her, but she had not provided him with the alcohol and would not say where she got her vodka. The woman was cited and released for minor in possession, and the man was released into her care.

Stolen sorority portrait

A UAPD officer was on patrol on Feb. 26 at 1:27 a.m., when he saw two men carrying a large composite photo of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority at First Street and Vine Avenue. The officer stopped the men and asked them why they were carrying the portrait. The men said they had gotten the composite portrait five minutes earlier from the sorority house at 1435 E. Second St. The men told the officer that a friend and current sorority sister gave them the portrait to use for Sigma Chi fraternity philanthropy purposes. The officer called the housemother at the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, and she told the officer that the portrait was missing. She did confirm, however, that the friend the men mentioned was a current sorority member. At 2:12 a.m., the housemother went to the intersection of First Street and Vine Avenue to look over the portrait and said the house would like to deal with the incident civilly and would not like to press charges. The portrait was given back to the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, and two Code of Conduct referrals were sent to the Dean of Students for the two men.

Student’s Mercedes vandalized

A UA student called UAPD on Saturday at 9:48 p.m. to report damage to his silver Mercedes-Benz in the parking lot at 1601 E. Sixth St. When the officer arrived, he saw scrapes along the left doorframe and the rear bumper. There was also damage to the area where the driver’s side door and back left door meet. There was broken yellow glass and an unknown liquid streaming from the broken glass. The back window was also shattered. Inside the car, there was a large rock the size of tennis ball on the back seat. The man told the officer that he did not know of anyone who could have damaged his car and did not want to press charges. The officer gave the man his case number and a copy of his victim’s rights. Photographs of the damage were taken and submitted and placed into UAPD property as evidence.

Couldn’t find what you were looking for?

A UAPD officer was sent to the Sonett Space Sciences building at 1541 E. University Blvd. on Saturday at 9:19 p.m. after someone reported seeing a suspicious-looking man going through cabinets in the basement of the building. The person who had seen the man told the officer that the man was wearing a blue jacket and had tattoos on his neck. When the officer went into the basement, he found a green duffle bag and a fire extinguisher lying at the bottom of the stairs. After the officer cleared the room, he saw that the doors were not secured, and the cabinets the man had been looking through seemed as if they had been rifled through. The officer could not tell if anything had been taken.The fire extinguisher was put back on the wall and a walk through was done in the basement to see if anything else had been altered. The green duffel bag was placed into UAPD property. Police Beat is compiled from official University of Arizona Police Department reports. A complete list of UAPD activity can be found at

No.1 Arizona men’s swim and dive enters Pac-10 Championships By Derek Lawrence ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Although the Arizona men’s swim and dive team has been among the nation’s elite all season, the top spot in the nation always eluded it — until Monday. The final poll of the season saw Arizona finish with 19 first-place votes, and the team will enter the Pacific 10 Conference Championships in Long Beach, Calif., today as the nation’s top dog. “It feels really good, even though we knew we were number one after beating Texas. To have it be actually official is really special,”said senior Jean Basson. “It’s a great reward for all the hard work we have put in this season and the close meets we have won against the best teams in the country.”

The top ranking came as a result of consecutive late-January wins over the No. 2, 3 and 4 teams in the nation: Texas, Stanford and California. The team is excited about the honor but also realizes that its work isn’t finished. “It’s great to earn that number-one spot in the last coaches poll of the year,” said senior Jordan Smith. “But now we really have to be ready to defend our spot on top going into the championship season.” Despite their place atop the rankings and their undefeated regular season, the Wildcats will have their hands full with stiff competition — defending Pac-10 Champion Stanford, as well as No. 4 Cal and No. 14 USC. “We know that what we really want is the NCAA team title, and the

fact that we did beat those teams in dual meets gives us a huge amount of confidence,” Basson said. The season-long focus for the men’s team has been to win a national championship, but despite the NCAA National Championships being right around the corner, the team can’t afford to look past the Pac-10 Championships. “(The Pac-10 Championships are) really important to us — not from a

standpoint of winning the meet but rather racing hard and as fast as possible because it’s our last chance to do that before nationals,” Basson said. “We also have the chance to get a bunch more guys qualified for nationals, which is huge.” The Pac-10’s will mark the last conference meet and second-tolast competition for a loaded senior class searching for a second national title in three years. The swimmers

understand that the end is near, but they know that it isn’t over yet. “This whole season so far has kind of been a blur because I’ve been focusing so hard on getting myself and the team ready for right now,” Basson said. “But now that it’s championship season, I’ve slowed everything down, and I’m concentrating on what I want, and that is to make this my best season ever to help the team out as much as possible.”

THAT’S WHAT THEY SAID — compiled by Derek Lawrence

“We have to look at things like how close together our team has come, the friendships we have made, how we have developed as people, how much fun Jean Basson we have had and the character we have showed by winning dual meets after senior being really far behind. These are all things that are very important to us.”

“When you get a chance to race Frank Busch against great talent out of sheer head coach pride we want to try and beat them.”

Momo ’Cats fall in last at-bat to Rebels comes through in the end By Michael Fitzsimmons ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

By Vincent Balistreri ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Since Arizona basketball freshman Momo Jones has set foot on the UA campus, he has talked about adding his name to the list of great Arizona point guards, and on Saturday he gave everyone a glimpse of what can be in the future. His buzzer beater made ESPN’s SportsCenter’s top-10 and lifted a sinking Arizona team over Stanford, possibly creating some momentum heading into the Pacific 10 Conference Tournament. After the shot banked in at the end of regulation and the team suffocated Jones in celebration, you could see the joy in senior leader Nic Wise’s face, as if he was an older brother who was proud to see his little brother finally putting it all together. “It was a great feeling, I know how it feels,” Wise said of watching Jones knock down the jumper.“When he hit it was kind of lift off everybody’s shoulders. “He’s grown a lot, you can tell, in these past couple weeks, he’s stepped up his game a lot,”Wise added.“He had to take the bumps in the road which every player has to in his career, once he got over that wall he’s playing like himself and helping us win games.” Jones had a career high of 16 points against Stanford, as he took the point guard duties when Wise remained on the bench down the stretch. His recent progress can be attributed to battles that he and Wise have had in practice since being matched up at the beginning of season. “It’s tough, frustrating sometimes with him knowing all the tricks, being here for fours years some of the things he does you can’t really account for,” Jones said. “It may be a stretch where I go at him or he comes at me, but I think us being on separate teams at practice it makes our team better and helps us a lot.” Though Jones had struggled earlier in his freshman season, his confidence and fearlessness on the court has never faltered. His confidence has grown since he’s adjusted to the speed of the college game and adopted some of Wise’s skills over the course of the season. MOMO, page A7

Wildcat players stood last night waiting to pour out of the dugout to celebrate a walk-off win. Unfortunately, their comeback attempt ended on a called third strike to sophomore right fielder Steve Selsky with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth, as University of Nevada, Las Vegas defeated Arizona (3-3) 12-10. “It’s just one of those games back and forth the whole time,” said junior second baseman Bryce Ortega . “You just hope you’ve got one more at the end or guys can come through with just that one hit. … They got it, we didn’t.” Although they scored ten runs on thirteen hits, the Wildcats couldn’t capitalize on several scoring chances and finished the game with 11 runners left on base, resulting in their third straight loss. Head coach Andy Lopez gave freshman Stephen Manthei the nod Tuesday night for his first start of the year. The Las Vegas, Nev., native could not record an out and surrendered five runs before sophomore Bryce Bandilla was called upon to stop the bleeding in the first inning. Facing a 5-0 deficit right off the bat, however, Arizona didn’t fold. The Wildcats answered the Runnin’ Rebels’ big first inning by throwing up a crooked number of their own, cutting the deficit to one run after a three-run shot by freshman center fielder Joey Rickard when the score was 5-1. Arizona scored four runs in the inning, reigniting a sputtering offense that scored just five runs in its last 16 innings. Lopez said he was pleased with the team offensively, but pitching

remained a sore thumb. “One of the standards in pitching is if your team scores, you make sure the other team doesn’t, and I’m not

so sure we did such a good job of that today,” Lopez said. “We can’t be giving up eight, 10 and 12 runs in our last three outings.”

The Wildcats matched UNLV (7-2) with the score at 7-7 in the third inning and the game remained tied until the Rebels retook the lead with a three-run fifth inning. Down 10-8 in the seventh inning, Arizona put together a rally that came off an error by the UNLV third baseman. Junior Josh Garcia delivered an RBI single, and freshman Alex Mejia forced home the tying run on a groundout to second base. Ortega, who is mired in an earlyseason slump, came to the plate with a chance to give the Wildcats the lead with two out in the seventh. He struck a ground ball to the right side that was bobbled by UNLV’s second baseman, and was called out on a bang-bang play at first base, which drew boos from the crowd and an argument from Lopez. “I’m going through one of those hitting phases right now where that’s going to be called out for me,” Ortega said. “I thought I was safe but it’s just one of those things. He didn’t see it that way.” Freshman reliever Nick Cunningham took the mound with one out and two runners on base in the top of the eighth inning, but gave up a tie breaking RBI single, handing UNLV the late 11-10 lead. The Rebels tacked on one more in the eighth and never looked back. Things got testy after the game between UA and UNLV after the game. A pack of players from both teams formed behind the pitcher’s mound. Players exchanged words and shoves before umpires and coaches broke up the crowd. “Someone said ‘Get off our field’ and everyone just started going at it,” Bandilla said. “Nothing really big, just words exchanged … we’ll get back at them (on the field) tomorrow.”

Ortega’s struggles continue Although it is still early in the season, UA baseball’s junior leadoff hitter and second baseman Bryce Ortega is struggling to find his way at the plate. After turning in a .324 batting

average that helped earn him earn First Team All Pacific 10 Conference last season, Ortega is now 4-for-25 through six games this season, including an 0-for-6 performance Tuesday night.

“When I’ve taken (batting practice) and stuff like that, I feel good and when I get in the box I try to do some things like small game,” Ortega said. “I’m not afraid to hit with two

strikes and I feel like some of my swings haven’t been so bad, but they’re just not falling now. I can’t lose my confidence that’s all.” —Mike Schmitz

Playing through the pain By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT When No. 2 Arizona softball’s head coach Mike Candrea exited the home dugout at Hillenbrand Stadium during the team’s Tuesday practice, he walked straight over to the bullpen. There sat senior pitcher Sarah

Akamine, who helped Arizona make it to the Women’s College World Series a season ago. Watching, rather than playing, is something Akamine has been growing accustomed to this season. “We’d like to see Sarah’s innings increase this week. So that will be a goal for us,” Candrea said.

The coaching staff will have the chance to increase the Escondido, Calif., native’s reps in the upcoming home games against non-ranked opponents, starting today at 4 and 6 p.m. against New Mexico State. The games against the Aggies (9-4) kick off a home stand that has the Wildcats (12-1) playing seven games in six days.

The veteran Akamine, who led the team in wins and strikeouts last season, has experienced soreness in her back after offseason surgery to remove ruptured and herniated disks. Akamine had to spend about a week and a half in the hospital over the SOFTBALL, page A7

Jones shines, Parrom done for season

continued from page A6

“I really had to slow myself down in the beginning, it was just a fastpaced game that I was going with and it wasn’t working,” Jones said. “Just sitting back and really watching how he handled the ball and how he got through little gaps. Just seeing that, you can’t help but to take that part of his game.” Jones will be the point guard of the future as Wise wraps up his career and has shown that he will be ready to step into those shoes with his progress late in the season. “His confidence and his durability are two characteristics that allow him to improve the way he does,” said Arizona head coach Sean Miller. “He’s fearless and competes every day, he shows up every day and rolls his sleeves up. You can tell the process has really begun to pay dividends.”

Parrom likely out for season The injury-plagued season of hard-nosed freshman Kevin Parrom has likely come to an end, according to Miller. Parrom, who missed the first 10 games with a stress fracture in his left foot, has what Miller called an “issue” with the same foot but not the same injury. “We’re cautious in dealing with him, making sure we don’t put him in a position to hurt himself further,” Miller said. “It hasn’t improved enough for him to perform in a game to be able to help us.”

Senior struggles with injury while freshman takes over

summer and has spent the entire season rehabilitating her back. “Right now it’s a little tight. I’ve gone through it before so it’s nothing new,”Akamine said. “It’s been like that for a while. I think because we’re getting into the season and working really hard, it’s acting up more.” As the season has progressed, Akamine has seen less and less action. Over the weekend at the Cathedral City Classic, freshman ace Kenzie Fowler pitched all five games. Akamine started one game against California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, but Candrea pulled her after just 3 2/3 innings. “The biggest thing I’m concerned about (is) overdoing it,” Candrea said of using Akamine before she is ready. “There was a situation this weekend where we had a sloppy field. When you have someone that’s had back surgery, the last thing you want to happen is to go backward. “I said ‘The big thing for you right now is to be able to have the mindset you go out and throw five good innings for us and then we

bring in Kenzie in relief,’” Candrea said Although Akamine sports a 2-1 record, the Wildcats will need to see more of her in the circle if Arizona hopes to be successful. While Fowler has proved she can go pitch for pitch, overworking her this early in the season is something that the Wildcats will want to avoid at all costs. “You have to look at the big picture,”Candrea said. “We’re going to have to pick up some quality innings.” Since the Wildcats do not face a ranked team in the next two weeks, Akamine will have time to see if her back will cooperate with her pitching routine. On the season, Akamine has seen action in just five of Arizona’s 13 games. The questions threaded throughout the season will focus on whether she can make it from the dugout to the circle. “Basically it’s whatever it takes to get through,” Akamine said. “With four months left to get through, I might as well put everything into it.”

Men’s golf dominates in SoCal Arizona wins Braveheart Classic; senior MacManus claims individual title By Alex Williams Arizona Daily Wildcat Playing poorly one week and winning the next isn’t such a bad tradeoff. As they say, winning cures everything. After finishing in sixth place and 18 strokes off the lead in last week’s John A. Burns Invitational, the Arizona men’s golf team (6-underpar) dismantled the field en route to winning this week’s Braveheart Classic by 20 strokes over second-place Long

Beach State University (14-over-par). To cap off a flawless week of play, UA junior Tarquin MacManus claimed his first individual victory of the season, the second of his career as he finished at (6-under-par) for the tournament, including a 66 (6-under-par) in the final round. “The greens were tricky,”MacManus said.“Its just one of those things where you have to hit as many fairways and greens as you can and a few puts will fall. Scoring was tough out there.”

Arizona added two more players in the top 5, as Rich Saferian (2-underpar) and Jonathan Khan (even) finished in third and fourth, respectively. Both have been playing well of late. Saferian won the Arizona Intercollegiate, and Khan was UA’s second-leading scorer in the Burns Invitational, the team’s two most recent tournaments. The finish matched the highest of Khan’s career, and it was the second top-5 finish for Saferian this season. “I just played pretty solid and didn’t

make any big mistakes,” said Khan, a junior from Tucson’s Salpointe Catholic high school. “Last week in Hawaii we didn’t play very well and we wanted to come out and change that. We’re going to Vegas next week so we wanted to play well going into that because it’s a pretty tough field.” Arizona will continue the spring season from March 12-14, as it takes part in the Southern Highlands Collegiate Championship, an event hosted by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

No. 1 UCLA overcomes early deficit

— Momo Jones

By Alex Williams Arizona Daily Wildcat After building a three-stroke lead heading into Tuesday’s second round of the Bruin Wave Invitational, the Arizona women’s golf team (6-over-par) shot an abysmal 11-over-par as it slid down the leader board to fourth place, six strokes behind leading UCLA (even).

The Wildcats didn’t have one player break par in the second round, and leading scorers Alejandra Llaneza and Nikki Koller shot a combined 10-over-par after entering the day at a combined 11-under-par. Freshman sensation Sherlyn Popelka recovered nicely from a poor first round of 7-over-par as she finished the second round at even par.

Koller recorded five bogeys on the back nine of the course, including three consecutive on holes 15-17 on her way to shooting 7-over-par, an 11-stroke swing from the 4-under-par she shot in Monday’s first round. Llaneza followed up a first round score of 3-under-par with a 4-over-par 76 in yesterday’s second round. She was solid but unspectacular, recording

only one birdie on the day and a double-bogey on the par-4 sixth. UCLA is at even par after two rounds, while Pepperdine and Southern California are in a tie for second, both at 4-over-par. Arizona and ASU are tied for fourth, as both sit at 6-over-par. The third and final round is scheduled for today, with tee times beginning at 8:45 a.m.
