In student government elections, campaign regulation isn’t always a black and white issue. Since campaigning began in February, the Associated Students of the University of Arizona Elections Commission has received complaints regarding a mass text sent offering alcohol in exchange for campaign support, campaign materials and candidates campaigning inside the UA Main Library. Less than a week ago, the Arizona Daily Wildcat received an anonymous email regarding a series of Facebook messages between a current senator, a senate candidate and other students about “library hopping.” Elections Commissioner Leo Oppenheimer confirmed that allegations of inappropriate campaigning had been levied against several candidates, including presidential candidate Morgan Abraham. “Library hopping” refers to candidates or campaign team members walking around the library and telling students about candidates and their platforms. Students would then be directed to the ASUA website, where they could access the online ballot, said Elena Gold, an ASUA Senate candidate and a participant in the Facebook messages. “It did occur,” Gold said. “There’s no reason to hide that, because it is not against the elections code. The allegations were brought to the elections commission and they ruled in my favor that it’s not outlined in the elections code that that’s against policy at all.”

Streetcar budget to increase RACHEL MCCLUSKEY Arizona Daily Wildcat

Management for the Tucson Modern Streetcar and the city of Tucson will be working on changes to the runtime schedule for the SunLink streetcar and a proposed increase in the budget for the project over the next few weeks. The streetcar is now under the management of RATP Dev McDonald Transit, or RDMT, which was awarded the contract in December and officially began operations in January. Originally, the project was predicted to cost $197 million; now, however, that number is expected to rise, according to project manager Shellie Ginn. “The very preliminary costs that were submitted earlier last year have changed, and it looks like they are going to be more than we had originally anticipated,” Ginn said. “But we don’t have final numbers yet.” RDMT Tucson general manager Steve Bethel explained that the mayor and Tucson City Council are reviewing the budget this week, and they will need to take some time to mull over the newly proposed budget. Ginn said that the schedule will probably not be finalized until April because the hours of operation are not as critical right now as some other items, such as the budget. “We’re watching the Portland cars,

which are ahead of the Tucson cars right now,” Ginn said. “Once we can feel comfortable that the Portland cars’ production rates are actually happening as scheduled, then we’ll be able to finalize our schedule and move forward with confidence.” The city may be making adjustments to the schedule, Bethel added. She said that surveys may be distributed to the public to gather feedback and that the schedule isn’t “100 percent solid” as of now. Although there has been no discussion about opening before the originally planned time, there will be a discussion about extended hours. “We’re still maintaining the original schedule that we had started with when we went out for the [request for proposal] for the management services, but that, too, is going to be under discussion,” Ginn said. “Currently, we are trying to mirror Sun Tran’s extended hours on Thursday, Friday, Saturday evenings, and we still are maintaining that, but we are not discussing opening past our time.” Ginn also said that the service start date might be farther off than previously thought. “We’re looking at the delay of the vehicles arriving here, and we were trying to see how that’s going to impact our revenue service state,” Ginn said. “That’s probably going to shift us out further, but we don’t have that date yet.” As of now, the new management is preparing for the next step after construction, which is the pre-revenue service of operation, and the revenue service for when it actually opens for the public, Ginn said. “We’re in [the] process [of] updating the operation documents, safety documents and management documents,” Bethel said, “and trying to get ready to do some hiring in the later spring and early summer. We will start bringing on [administrative] staff and some financial folks. Not a lot changed; we are just continuing on with getting the documents prepared for revenue service.”

went to counseling for the first time. It is stories like that that make me feel better.” “Most service dogs veterans have to pay for,” said Alicia Miller, Rhiannon’s mother. “The VA [U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs] does not provide them. The veterans, especially when they just come back, can’t afford to pay for a dog to help them and it is something that has to be done to save lives. “That’s why we do it,” she added. “We are always looking for volunteers because even if we grow fantastically, we will not be able to meet … all the needs that are out there.” In this stressful transitional stage in veterans’ lives, emotional stability is more important than ever. Operation Wolfhound is either contacted by veterans who have heard of the emotional benefits that animals can provide, or by counselors trying to help patients who are at the end of their ropes. The dogs never disappoint. “We have never had a dog that didn’t warm up to their veteran,” Rhiannon said. “It is amazing. These guys [veterans] are pretty quiet and on guard, so to see them look at the dog and melt, it is pretty adorable and profound.” The organization typically trains borzoi, because of their emotional independence and intelligence. Their large size is also of fundamental importance due to the physical needs of veterans: Some people with PTSD

have nightmares whose intense and graphic flashbacks can result in violent seizures, but big dogs can ensure that the veterans do not injure themselves. Many of the owners also have mobility issues, and Rhiannon said the borzoi are helpful in situations that cause physical strain. Dogs chosen by the program receive public access training, where they learn to go up and down escalators and elevators, stay calm in crowds and watch their veteran’s back, which helps veterans dealing with hypervigilance. “This basically gives them a battle buddy,” Rhiannon said. “When you are in the military, you have someone with you all the time. You have people that are there specifically to watch your back. When you are out of the military, you don’t have that anymore. “A dog fills that gap. You can trust the dog to watch your back, and you know it is going to be there.” Now that she is 21 years old, Rhiannon is old enough to run the organization on her own and is working to become the official owner. But no matter what her official position, Rhiannon said that these dogs will always be a part of her life. “I want Operation Wolfhound to get as big as it needs to get. If other organizations pop up and they can start helping fulfill this need, then I’ll be ecstatic. I want to be part of this for the rest of my life.”

Logan Bilby, an ASUA senator, helped create the UA Listens page on Facebook in order to give students a way to voice their opinion and ideas for the campus. Petitions that receive more than 100 likes on the page will be brought up at the next ASUA Senate meeting.

Rhiannon Miller helped create Operation Wolfhound when she was 16 and has since placed more than 60 dogs with people in need.

A new UA Facebook page looks to help involve the general student body in student government. The UA Listens page was created by Associated Students of the University of Arizona Sen. Logan Bilby to give students an easy way to voice their opinions and ideas for the campus. “This is an idea I’ve actually been thinking about for quite some time now, but until the whole format of the UA Compliments, UA Confessions came about I didn’t really know how to make it so students would see it all the time,” said Bilby, a marketing and business management junior. After the success of pages like U of A Confessions and UA Compliments, Bilby and Grant Suman, a pre-business sophomore and ASUA senatorial candidate, decided to create a page in the same vein to poll students on topics and allow ASUA to get a better understanding of what is important to the student body. The page is set up so that anyone can fill out a Survey Monkey survey and anonymously submit it. Bilby then reads through the submitted petitions and posts them on the page for the public to read. “I think it’s a pretty good

UA professor teaches monks


CHRIS IMPEY TEACHES WORKSHOPS FOCUSED on cosmology with the Science for Monks program. The program gives Western educators the chance to teach science workshops in the Tibetan monastic community in India.

that,” Oppenheimer said. “Maybe having one polling site needs to be looked into in the future just to make sure everyone has the opportunity to vote privately, but in response to what’s going on, disallowing campaigning in the library or computer lab was our best solution.” Sen. Valerie Hanna, who was also a participant in the Facebook conversation, declined to comment directly on the situation. “Given the current elections code, there was no rule broken,” Hanna said, “but they’re [elections commission] realizing maybe there’s improvements that can be made to the election code, which really happens every year.” Although Hanna wrote in the Facebook messages that participants would “help get out the vote for Morgan,” Abraham denied that he or his campaign team were involved. “I’m just really glad we sent out that email and we caught it in time,” Abraham said. “I think people going to the library aren’t wanting to be bothered with stuff like that. Hopefully it doesn’t happen anymore.” Other candidates questioned the ethics behind library campaigning. “I think part of the ASUA voting constitution is to have unbiased voting,” said ASUA presidential candidate Dylan Duniho. If library hopping is happening, “it’s not letting people actually make an unbiased decision and to vote who they want to.”

Write-in process criticized

Members of ASUA have also questioned the legitimacy of the executive vice president election. Ahead of the primary, candidate Mariam Nikola was the only person to have a write-in candidate packet accepted by the Elections Commission. However, Nikola, an ASUA senate aide to Sen. Vinson Liu, collected only 200 votes, 100 short of the required number to to move on to the general election

as an official candidate. As a result, there were no official EVP candidates on the general election ballot, Oppenheimer said. However, for the first two and a half hours of the primary election, the space for EVP did not appear on the ballot, due to technical difficulties. Additionally, primary election polls closed about 30 minutes early for all candidates, Oppenheimer said. “I believe it was an unfortunate situation,” Nikola said. “I feel like anybody can see it as a problem and as [resulting] in a deficit of votes.” Oppenheimer and the commission acknowledged that the errors could have resulted in a loss of votes for Nikola, but ruled that the number of votes received during those times for other positions was not enough to indicate that Nikola would have met the requirement, even without the technical glitches. But other ASUA officials declared the problem was the commission’s, not the candidate’s. “Mariam ended up with 200 write-in votes, but when you make a mistake like that you cannot say, ‘She probably wouldn’t have gotten it,’” Liu said. “You cannot fault the candidate when it was the system that messed up. How is that fair?”

Loopholes in system

After the primary election, the commission decided to allow students to campaign as writein candidates for executive vice president during general elections — a process not defined in the elections code. “I guess they found a loophole in the elections code which allows candidates to not run during primaries but run during the general race,” said current ASUA Sen. Bryan Namba. “It’s been an interesting election season thus far, compared to last year. Definitely a lot of loopholes.” Every year brings new loopholes in the campaigning process, Oppenheimer said. “Moving forward, obviously, I think there needs to be a lot that needs to be looked at to be changed,” Oppenheimer said.

Jugs for charity? Not a problem DAVID WEISSMAN Arizona Daily Wildcat


fraternity at Cornell University was recently pressured by members of the campus community to change the name of its popular philanthropic event, “Which Sorority has the Best Water Jugs on Campus” — and this is after the name was changed from “Best Jugs on Campus” several years previously. The formula of the event is simple: All 12 Cornell sororities decorate large plastic water jugs, and passersby put their donations in their favorite jug. The sorority with the most donations wins the event. Money raised goes to benefit Pi Kappa Phi’s national philanthropy, Push America, which is dedicated to helping people with disabilities. The controversy was sparked by certain administrators and campus organizations who were offended at the use of the word “jugs” in relation to sororities — clearly taking it to mean something other than simply a large plastic container. Ashley Harrington, a student member of the Women’s Resource Center advisory board, expressed her problem with the event’s name in an interview with Cornell’s student newspaper, The Cornell Daily Sun. “Jugs become what these brilliant, beautiful, talented women are relegated to,” Harrington said. “It becomes even worse when money is involved. The better the sorority’s jugs, the more money they get for their philanthropy. In this [way], women become a commodity masked in the name of philanthropy.” But this is not some kind of attempt to objectify women and “mask” it as philanthropy. This is a philanthropy event that simply chose to use a light-hearted joke in its approach, and yes, it can be read as a reference to breasts. If it is, then so what? It’s definitely not a “derogatory” way of demeaning a group that has, by the way, been very enthusiastic in participating in this philanthropy. The event was not held on Cornell’s campus last year, but was held for the nine years before that. It was brought back to Cornell this year because several sororities requested it. Clearly, the sororities involved do not feel offended. Kathleen McArdle, a member of the Phi Sigma Sigma sorority at Cornell, for one, did not share Harrington’s outrage. “It would be one thing if the event was advertised with photos of busty, half-naked women or something along those lines, but it clearly shows a picture of a water jug,” McArdle told the Cornell Daily Sun. “The event itself isn’t demeaning in my opinion, and I believe the slang term is just being used to draw attention to an otherwise charitable cause.” Harassing a fraternity to change the name of a philanthropy event because of a double entendre is a new low in political correctness. We can’t refer to all water jugs as “plastic water containers” because some thin-skinned individual will be offended. Should any word with a possible double meaning be stricken from the English language? The main issue here is that those offended overlooked the noble intentions of a charity event to express indignation about what is, at worst, an immature joke, and was more likely just an amusing double entendre meant to draw attention to a worthwhile cause. —David Weissman is a journalism senior.

We’re done with GPSC president’s games


e have a bone to pick with GPSC President Zachary Brooks. Earlier this week, Brooks released an official statement via the Graduate and Professional Student Council’s Facebook page declaring his opposition to the Arizona Student Media fee, which would support operations at KAMP Student Radio, UATV and the Arizona Daily Wildcat. In his statement, Brooks writes that Arizona Student Media’s $3 refundable fee proposal says “nothing tangible” of its benefits to graduate students. Furthermore, Brooks says he is against the fee because Arizona Student Media Board bylaws dictate that the board’s graduate student member cannot be an elected GPSC official. No one, including members of Arizona Student Media, can make you vote a certain way. There are certainly a fair number of reasons to not vote for the Student Media fee, and as an independent voter, you are owed the freedom to draw your own conclusions. But there are a few reasons Brooks’ anti-endorsement means nothing.

Student-run media serves all students

“In fact, the word ‘graduate’ does not appear once in the Prospectus,” Brooks writes. Actually, the proposal says: “Arizona Student Media is a campus auxiliary department reporting to Student Affairs with oversight for student media organizations. Its mission is to recruit and coach student staffs and to provide the resources that allow students to produce high quality media that inform and entertain the UA community on multiple platforms and provide forums for the exchange of ideas and opinion.” Notice that “undergraduate” also does not appear even once. Does that mean the fee does not serve undergraduates either? A more logical reading would interpret “students” as encompassing both groups. The fee proposal does not distinguish between the two groups in any way. Although it’s true that participating in student-run media is traditionally an undergraduate extracurricular activity, graduate students are not excluded. Suggesting that they are is misleading, irresponsible and manipulative. Last semester, the Daily Wildcat’s editors included two graduate students. KAMP Student Radio currently employs five or six graduate students, including one serving as a music director, said KAMP general manager Isaac Gealer. UATV does not currently employ any graduate students, said UATV general manager Jackie Kent, but any student — undergraduate, graduate, professional — from any major can apply to work at UATV, just like at any other student-run media outlet. Not to mention, the chair of the Arizona Student Media Board is a graduate student. Furthermore, graduate students are encouraged to interact with all three outlets, and many do. The Arizona Student Media Board restricts an elected official of GPSC from serving on the board simply in order to maintain an honest and free press. After all, it would make no sense for the president of the U.S. to serve as editor-in-chief of The New York Times. The bylaws protect Student Media from political influence. Besides, the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and GPSC hold seats on the board. Neither seat can be filled by an elected official, but representatives from both student government bodies are supposed to be there. GPSC left its seat unfilled this year.

THIS TEXT MESSAGE EXCHANGE, from Feb. 27, is one of many failed efforts of the Arizona Daily Wildcat to reach out to Zachary Brooks, president of the Graduate and Professional Student Council. Brooks has repeatedly refused to be openly communicative, despite acknowledging his role as an important student leader on campus.

That’s just not the way journalism works. It would be like a source saying, “If you do not use every word I say in this interview, do not speak to me at all.” Furthermore, Brooks has sent text messages to a news reporter in an attempt to influence the direction of a story. No other leader at the UA, student or otherwise, has gone to such lengths to make sure a story is told the way they want it to be. We’re not in the habit of folding to figures who try to wield an authority they do not have over our coverage. But attempts to reach out to other GPSC members have only resulted in pointless referrals back to Brooks, systematically destroying the organization’s relationship with the Daily Wildcat.

Protecting free, independent student press

Brooks’ behavior has been unprofessional, vindictive and wholly unbecoming of a student leader. His refusal to support the Arizona Student Media fee appears to be more about his personal feelings toward the Daily Wildcat than his concern for graduate students, and it disregards the well-being of KAMP Student Radio and UATV entirely. KAMP and UATV would essentially be unfunded without the fee. But perhaps even more importantly, Brooks’ anti-endorsement demonstrates a frightening ignorance: Any student government body Last fall, in a series of emails to the Daily Wildcat, Brooks accused reporters and editors of bias in their coverage of the Arizona Students’ that asserts itself into the editorial decisions of student journalists threatens the First Amendment rights guaranteed to a free student Association, a student statewide lobbying group that has made headlines for its contributions to a political campaign using student fee press. Brooks has turned GPSC’s relationship with the Daily Wildcat into money and its lawsuit against the Arizona Board of Regents. a fight on the playground.

Best books to browse WILDCAT ARTS STAFF Arizona Daily Wildcat


ith the Tucson Festival of Books taking over the UA campus this weekend, students should be more focused on literature than ever — not just for academic purposes, but for its artistic value. The Tucson Festival of Books, which attracts more than 100,000 visitors each year, is well worth checking out before you leave for spring break. To get you in the mood, here are a few of the Arizona Daily Wildcat arts desk’s favorite books.

“The Stranger” by Albert Camus

The short length of this novel defies the depths of its discourse. It is an insight into human absurdity through profound minimalism, as questions of morality are presented through the main character’s poignantly relatable introspection. “The Stranger” divides readers between feeling compassion for the main character and distrust of his actions and emotions, while presenting a reflection on human nature and our supposedly innate emotional responses. Is feeling nothing insanity or immorality? This book actively involves the reader in contemplating the social expectations of how they “should” feel in love and death. It is beautifully strange, and hauntingly familiar. — Audrey Molloy

“The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch and Jeffrey Zaslow

“Tuesdays with Morrie” by Mitch Albom

All too often we become absorbed with the everyday hustle and bustle of life. We rarely, if ever, take time to reflect, and penance has become a thing of the past as we find ourselves immersed in work and school. Both life-changing and inspiring, the book “Tuesdays With Morrie” carved a new way of thinking for me. I read this book before entering college, and I give it credit for my enlightened sense of the value of a collegiate atmosphere and of knowledge itself. Albom put immeasurable amounts of dedication and life into this book, and in doing so, he has helped to share Morrie’s incredible wisdom with the world. — Amy Johnson

“A Game of Thrones” by George R. R. Martin

This is the first book of the ever-popular “A Song of Fire and Ice series” (and perhaps even more popular TV series on HBO). While the TV series is good, it does not come close to its inkand-paper counterpart. This fantasy novel about lords, ladies and a fight for the iron throne is not only full of gripping action, constant excitement, passion and mystery, but also an immersive look at the amazing characters within the story. Martin varies the point of view in each chapter, allowing the reader to see the story from all different perspectives — a technique worth using in real life as well. — Alyssa DeMember

While it’s more than serious in its basic premise, late Carnegie Mellon University professor Randy Pausch’s final offering to the world reads less like a how-to manual and more like the wistful reflections of a man with just days to live — as Pausch was. This is what makes “The Last Lecture” a classic. Pausch’s autobiographical musings and relatable advice, at times humorous and always reflective, strike just the right chord with readers, thematically reminding them that their days are numbered, too. Pausch writes that he wants us to go out and live. Now is as appropriate a time as ever to act accordingly. — K.C. Libman

“World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War” by Max Brooks

Zombies are in, and they’re probably not going out of style any time soon. In “World War Z,” Brooks takes the concept of post-war interviews to a new level as he delves into a reality where a zombie infection plagues mankind. Inspired by “The Good War,” the oral history of World War II and, of course, zombie films, Brooks did a lot of research to make the novel realistic in its technology, economics, politics and more. He uses a zombie outbreak as a way to comment on social issues, government and American isolationism and survivalism without shoving the issues down your throat. — Cecelia Marshall

Police Beat



MAXWELL J. MANGOLD Arizona Daily Wildcat


Rock ’em sock ’em roommates

Two roommates were referred to the dean of students following a domestic violence incident in Coronado Residence Hall at 8 p.m. on March 2. Officers from the University of Arizona Police Department met with a resident assistant and community director at 10:54 p.m. to learn about the details of the fight, and then spoke with the women involved. One of the women had left the building with her mother before police arrived, but officers spoke with the other, who said she had been “uncomfortable” living with her roommate and had decided to move her own belongings to an empty room next door. As she was doing this, her roommate confronted her and pushed her, using obscene language and demanding to know why she was moving, she said. The roommate then began to speak badly about one of the woman’s friends while pushing the woman and pulling her hair. The woman said this made her so angry that she hit her roommate. She showed police a scratch on her neck and her irritated scalp from the hair pulling, which police photographed for evidence. She then told the police that her friend had witnessed the fight. The friend, who was interviewed independently by police, said the roommates had been angry at each other all night and while drinking at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house earlier. The friend said she wasn’t sure who had started the fight, but she had seen the roommates scratching each other and pulling each other’s hair. Police spoke on the phone with the roommate who had left the dorm. She had been unwilling to disclose details to a resident assistant. The roommate, who police noticed “seemed partially confused and spoke in a thick tongued manner” over the phone, said, “I was laying in bed and [my roommate] just got in my face” and “just pulled my head to the ground.” She refused to have her injuries photographed, including a small cut above her left eye, and was generally uncooperative. The woman who was still in Coronado was moved into another dorm for the night and will eventually be relocated to avoid any more fights. Both students were referred to the dean of students.

Urine trouble

A UA student was arrested on charges of minor in possession of alcohol after he urinated on himself on First Street at 4:58 p.m. on March 2. A UAPD officer on the way to an unrelated call saw the man unzip his swim trunks to urinate. The student was facing a wall, but he looked in the direction of the officer and then immediately started walking away. When the officer stopped the student and asked him for identification, the officer noticed the man was slurring his words and smelled strongly of alcohol. The officer also noticed the man had urinated in his swim trunks and forgotten to zip them up. A sobriety test of the man confirmed that he had been drinking. He was cited for minor in possession, and the officer gave him a ride home.

Pac-12 basketball: Four way battle at the top kyle johnson Arizona Daily Wildcat


ust like that, Arizona’s dream of a conference title is gone. Wednesday’s loss to USC was a devastating blow; Saturday’s loss to UCLA finished the Wildcats off. The absence of the preseason championship favorite doesn’t ruin any of the drama heading toward the final week, though. In fact, it makes it that much more entertaining. Three teams have a shot to take the outright Pac-12 title — let the fun begin. As a side note, there can be a shared conference title, but the Pac-12 tournament uses tiebreakers to decide seeding. Don’t worry; it gets a whole lot more confusing.

UCLA (22-7, 12-4 Pac-12)

Somehow, the Bruins have clawed their way back into the driver’s seat and now have the easiest road to the championship. With games at Washington State (a joke) and Washington (a little tougher), the Bruins can snag at least a share of the title if they win out. That possibility was hard to imagine when UCLA lost back-to-back games to ASU (78-60) and USC (75-71) a little more than five weeks ago. But the Bruins’ lone senior, guard Larry Drew II, has the high-powered UCLA offense running on all cylinders, and with talent like Shabazz Muhammad alongside him, this is the team to beat. UCLA controls its own destiny for the title,

but not for the No. 1 seed in the tournament. That’s because the other two teams vying for the championship beat the Bruins head-tohead this season.

Oregon (23-6, 12-4)

As weird as it seems, Oregon has been Mr. Consistency in the conference this year. Sure, it had a three-game losing streak earlier this season, but in hindsight, a 14-point loss to Stanford, a four-point loss to Cal and a one-point loss to Colorado at home wasn’t an easy stretch at all. Throw in that guard Dominic Artis injured his left foot just a week earlier, and the skid makes total sense. Now the freshman guard is back, and the Ducks need to win at Colorado and Utah to capture a share of the title. Thanks to the win over UCLA, they’d also take the top seed in Las Vegas. Of course, if both the Ducks and the Bruins drop a game this weekend, it leaves the door open for Cal to swoop right in.

California (20-9, 12-5)

Cal isn’t the best team in the Pac-12, but boy, is it the hottest (as shown by the Golden Bears’ top spot in the weekly power rankings). Cal is on a seven-game win streak and has won nine of its last 10. During that time, the Golden Bears have conquered Oregon (twice), Arizona, UCLA and Colorado with the lone slip-up coming in Tempe to ASU by four points.

The run really came out of nowhere, too. Before the start of February, the Golden Bears had been wholly and completely average. They beat the teams they were better than and lost to those they weren’t. Cal was below-average offensively, middleof-the-road defensively and only guards Allen Crabbe and Justin Cobbs were consistently producing. It all added up to an 11-8 record and a straight path to mediocrity. Then Cal went gangbusters and now has an outside shot at the title. The Golden Bears will need help, as they’re a half-game behind both UCLA and Oregon and rival Stanford visiting on Wednesday. If everything falls right, though, Cal can win a share of the Pac-12 and take the No. 1 seed in the process. Crazy.

Arizona (23-6, 11-6)

If somehow all three teams ahead of Arizona lost out (and the Wildcats beat ASU on Saturday), there could tyler besh/arizona Daily Wildcat conceivably be a four-way tie for SOPHOMORE GUARD Nick Johnson steals the ball from USC’s Aaron first place. Considering that the Fuller in Wednesday’s loss to the Trojans. last shared title was in 1999-2000 (Arizona and Stanford), and there the UA), things get a little jumbled up. The tiehave only been 10 co-champions since Pac-10 breaker is decided by the teams’ record against basketball started in 1915, a four-way tie isn’t a the seeds higher than them, so Arizona’s record good bet. It’s just not impossible. against UCLA vs. USC’s record against UCLA. If What Arizona should concentrate on now is it’s the same, it goes down the list. tournament seeding. A win against ASU guarIt’s a terrible system, I know. But since Coloraantees a first-round bye and the No. 4 seed. The do and USC both beat a top-3 seed team, Arizona Wildcats can’t do any better because they’re 0-4 would get a No. 5 seed in that scenario. Ouch. against the projected top-3 seeds. With a loss, things could get a little murky. — Kyle Johnson is a journalism junior.

sparse for Griffey in 2013. But Griffey didn’t come to sit on the bench. When quarterbacks coach Rod Smith recruited him to the UA, after first recruiting him to Indiana while a member of the Hoosiers’ staff, he wanted to make an impact for the Wildcats. So in his redshirt year, Griffey worked hard in the weight room and hit the books to study Rodriguez’s offense. Griffey said he feels comfortable out on the field and in the film room. Hill even remarked that Griffey has become the go-to guy for calling out routes and plays, and Rodriguez has taken note. “I’m sure everything is still happening fast for him,� Rodriguez said, “but when you tell something to Trey or coach him up, you can tell he carries it over to the drill or team part of practice. He’s very coachable, and there’s no question I think he’s going to be able to help us this year.� Rodriguez called this year’s wide receiver corps “the most experienced,� meaning Griffey has a lot of competition in front of him. But it’s still early enough for him to make an impression. “There isn’t even a depth chart yet, but they’ve told me and all of us that as long as you learn your position you should be good,� Griffey said. “But there’s competition everywhere, and you can’t afford to come out one day and not show up the next. If you want to start, you got to work hard — no matter if you’re a redshirt or not.�

ARIZONA STARTING PITCHER Tyler Crawford went 8.0 innings in Tuesday’s 6-2 win over Texas Tech. The Wildcats play this afternoon at 1 p.m. with a chance to sweep the Red Raiders.

momentum is on your side, and he did that for us today.” Tuesday night, the Wildcats’ middle of the order carried the team, as they went 4-10 and contributed to all six of their runs via the RBI or run. Arizona’s batters were steady throughout the night but broke through against Texas Tech’s starting pitcher, Johnny Drozd (1-1), in the sixth inning. Field, Brandon Dixon and Trent Gilbert fueled the inning when all three reached base and drove in three of the four runs. “[Drozd] didn’t really have much velocity on his fastball tonight, but he did a good job locating his off-speed pitches for strikes,” Field said. “He kept us a little off-balance, but we’re a pretty good lineup and we finally got to him in the sixth.” Freshman Tyger Talley (0-0) will make his fourth appearance but first start for the Wildcats on Wednesday afternoon as they go for the two-game sweep of the Red Raiders.

goes through this, and it’s just a matter of fighting through.” Sometimes it’s easy to remember the 14-0 start to the season and overlook the Cardiac ’Cats part of the era. Florida gifted Arizona the win back in December — a game in McKale Center where the Gators clearly outplayed the Wildcats. Johnson saved the San Diego State victory with an incredible block. If he was a split second later, it would have been a loss. Then there was the Sabatino Chen debacle, where Colorado’s buzzer beater

was called off for some reason. Even if the officials made the correct call (they didn’t), Arizona still bridged a 10-point gap in the final 1:50. That was as much of a Buffalo choke as a Wildcat comeback. The recent slump could just be the odds evening out. The poker hands went cold, and the Wildcats are now embracing their true identity. Miller and senior Solomon Hill have both said multiple times that Arizona hasn’t played like an elite team as of late. The coach even said this isn’t a top-8 team; it’s more like a top-25. He’s right, but so are Johnson and Parrom. The natural regression was inevitable after so many close wins. Arizona has looked like a completely different side in Pac-12 play, though. With the addition of five new faces in the 10-man rotation, the Wildcats should be peaking, not slumping. The story goes deeper than a law of averages, and since Parrom said the swagger and confidence comes from within, Arizona still has hope. With how mad things get in March, Arizona has the potential to be a Sweet Sixteen team, maybe even a title contender. It just needs to start playing like one. As much as I hate to say it, the Wildcats really do need to find that missing swagger.

REDSHIRT FRESHMAN Trey Griffey’s father, Ken Griffey Jr., played 21 seasons of Major League baseball and was a 13-time All-Star. Trey Griffey said he “didn’t really love baseball,” which led to his decision to play football for Arizona.

Tuesday’s 6-2 victory by No. 16 Arizona (11-3) over Texas Tech (76) was a bounce-back win for the Wildcats that centered around an 8.0 inning performance by sophomore pitcher Tyler Crawford. As the Arizona offense took advantage of the runners on base, Texas Tech batters scattered hits off Crawford, collecting eight in total. Crawford accomplished the day’s goal of mixing pitches and giving the opposing hitters different looks as he limited any Red Raider surge. Texas Tech went 2-10 with runners on base against the lefty. “[Crawford] pitched the way he’s supposed to pitch,” pitching coach Shaun Cole said. Cole had questioned Crawford’s concentration in his previous appearances but said he was satisfied with Tuesday’s performance, especially with runners on base. Now, Crawford can expect to see a consistent high level of focus from what he called his “safety net.” “I felt focused and really tried to keep the ball down and keep them guessing,” Crawford said. “[Cole] tells us all season that if they throw up a zero we need to do that, and that was definitely a goal for me today.” Crawford’s 8.0 innings of work and five strikeouts were career highs for the sophomore. Crawford surrendered two runs Tuesday night. The first run came in the top of the fourth when Texas Tech center fielder Brett Bell led off the inning with a single and was later driven in on a double by second baseman Bryant Burleson to tie the game at one. Following the run, Crawford settled in, retiring 12 out of the next 15 Texas Tech batters. The tempo appeared to carry over to the offense, as the Wildcats tied the game in the bottom of the fourth and struck for four more runs in the sixth inning. “When [Crawford] is filling up the strike zone, it’s great because the momentum is staying on our side,” center fielder Johnny Field said. “It just feels easier to put up runs when

omething is off with Arizona. In recent games, the Wildcats have been off their game. Arizona has lost four of its past seven games, dropped to its lowest rank all season (No. 18) and looks like a middling team in a mediocre Pac-12. “We just have to keep on staying with it and get our swagger back,” sophomore guard Nick Johnson said. To me, at least, “swagger” is a strange and annoying word. But for this Arizona squad, Johnson just might be right. The energy is gone. The play is actually cringe-worthy at times. Opponents shot 46.9 percent during the seven-game slump, resulting in an average of 69 points per game. Considering that that’s perilously close to 70, the breaking point for the Arizona defense (Arizona is 4-6 when teams score over that amount, 19-0 when they’re under), the recent dip in play makes complete sense. Head coach Sean Miller even said so after the USC loss. The Wildcats

have somehow shifted from playing like one of the best defensive teams he’s had at Arizona to being the absolute worst he’s coached. The “what” isn’t the issue. It’s the “why,” and that’s where Johnson is on point. “We definitely got to get [our defense] back,” Johnson said. “That’s what made us so good. That’s why we rode on our string of wins. Just get our defense and swagger back.” If this was a one or two game sample, the high shooting percentages could be chalked up to a hot night by the opponent. Cal and USC both made over 58 percent of their baskets; even with poor defense, that’s not a repeatable offensive output. But the decline in defensive play continues to rear its ugly head, forcing me to use another unsubstantial word to explain it — effort. It’s hard to imagine players not giving their all in a college basketball game. And yet effort has been the buzzword of late, especially after the Washington State and USC games.

The players are trying; some just aren’t as locked in and focused on defense as they need to be, and the results haven’t been pretty. Senior Kevin Parrom has been one of the players frustrated with the defensive effort. But in Saturday’s loss to UCLA, Parrom started to see signs that the will is returning. With that comes the missing swagger. “It’s coming,” he said. “That swagger has to come back in order for us to win some games, and it’s coming. I’d rather go through what we’re going through now than in the NCAA tournament or in [Las] Vegas [for the Pac-12 tournament] … Every team

The Pac-12 named Arizona women’s basketball senior Davellyn Whyte to the All-Pac-12 team for the third time on Tuesday. Whyte, a guard, was also named honorable mention All-Defensive team. Whyte is No. 2 on Arizona’s all-time scoring list, behind current UW assistant coach Adia Barnes. Whyte has scored 2,036 points in her UA career, including 482 this season, for an average of 16.6 per game. Whyte produced the only triple-double in Arizona history against ASU on Feb. 22, scoring 31 points, dishing out 10 assists and grabbing 10 rebounds. In each of her four seasons, Whyte has led the Wildcats in scoring. This season, head coach Niya Butts and Whyte said that it was a goal of theirs for the team to make it to the NCAA tournament for the first time in Whyte’s career, but barring a gabriela diaz championship in next week’s Pac-12 tournaSENIOR GUARD Davellyn ment, chances are slim to none that it will Whyte was named to her happen. The Wildcats (12-17) finished the third All-Pac-12 team regular season tied for 11th place in the PacTueaday. 12 with a 4-14 conference record. “She has meant a lot to what we are trying to do,” Butts said on Sunday. “If you look at her complete body of work aside from post-season play, that’s all you can really ask for in a player.” Whyte has been named All-Pac-12 twice and All-Pac-10 once. In 2010, Whyte was named Pac-10 Freshman of the Year. The Wildcats will face Utah in the first round of the women’s Pac-12 tournament in Seattle, Wash., on Thursday at 3:30 p.m.
