New $500 fee
LUCKY NO. 13
Honors College motions for students to pay for smaller, specialized classes By Laura Donovan Arizona Daily Wildcat The UA is proposing a $500 annual fee for honors students, said Patricia MacCorquodale, dean of the Honors College. “There are a lot more individualized and personalized elements that go into the Honors College education,”MacCorquodale said. “They get smaller classes and more personalized attention.” MacCorquodale explained that it costs about twice as much for an honors class than a non-honors course, because classes are often smaller and are typically taught by faculty members as opposed to teaching assistants and adjuncts.
I don’t like (the proposed fee) in principle, it’s basically making people pay for having passion for knowledge, but I understand that the economic climate right now is hard and the university is just trying to get by. It’s a necessary evil.
— Louise Williams, philosophy freshman
“To provide these honors services, we needed to pay for that through a fee,” MacCorquodale said. The Honors Student Council voted March 3 to support the fee with the hope that, if implemented, honors students will have a direct say in the allocation of a large portion of the money. Other ideas included transparency in its allocation and a guarantee that it only benefits honors students. The Honors Student Council ensured that the Honors College is taking all possible measures to provide an honors education to everyone who wants it, said Tim Malan, president
of the council. “I truly believe that the dean wants what’s in our best interest, and I am glad that we really hit some important points in our discussion about the fee,” Malan said. Malan worries the fee has the potential to deter students from receiving honors education. “Hopefully this is something we can fix by using a large portion of the fee money to create opportunities in the honors program for both FAFSA and non-FAFSA students,”Malan said. MacCorquodale has not heard any positive or negative feedback on the proposed fee from any group outside of those she has already spoken with. “I talked to students about the fee in the last few years, and I met with the Honors Student Council a few times this semester,” MacCorquodale said about informing students of the possible fee. “I know that there are students who don’t want to pay a fee and are disappointed at the proposal.” MacCorquodale said other universities across the country charge fees for honors programs. “We’re sometimes asked if there’s an additional cost to being in the Honors College. It’s not an idea people have not thought about before,” she said. Communications senior and honors student Christine Filer expressed skepticism over the proposed fee. “Attaining high academic achievement shouldn’t be a finance burden,” Filer said. “The Honors College shouldn’t put another burden on students, especially since we are paying fees and tuition already.” Filer has been a member of the Honors Student Council for three years, and plans on graduating with honors. Philosophy freshman and honors student Louise Williams had a mixed response to the proposed fee. “I don’t like it in principle, it’s basically making people pay for having a passion for knowledge,” she said. “But I understand that the economic climate right now is hard and the university is just trying to get by. It’s a necessary evil.” Williams said it is the Honors College’s duty to make sure students understand exactly what the fee money is going toward.

College of Pharmacy helps El Rio residents By Luke Money Arizona Daily Wildcat UA College of Pharmacy students joined with the El Rio Neighborhood Community Center to host the El Rio Neighborhood Center Health and Safety Fair on Saturday. The fair featured local agencies, university health resources, education services and various tests and screenings for ailments, including asthma, high cholesterol and pulmonary irregularities. “We do the safety fair every year,” said Mariela Vega, recreation assistant and special events coordinator for the community center. “Every year, our goal is to get more agencies involved so we can provide more services to the community.” According to Vega, 85 service groups and community partners were represented at the event, which was combined with the Women’s Health Expo, a yearly event sponsored by UA pharmacy students. “(The pharmacy students) came to us this year asking if they could hold their event at our center on the same weekend as our safety fair,” Vega said. “Combining our two events just made sense.” Stacey Zuleta, a third-year pharmacy graduate student who organized the Women’s Health Expo, agreed with Vega.

The College of Pharmacy worked in conjunction with El Rio Neighborhood Health and Safety Fair to put on their Women’s Health Expo on Sunday.
“We’ve always done the Women’s Health Expo, but we’ve never gotten more than 300 people to attend,” Zuleta said.“We were looking for more exposure, but we didn’t have a lot of ability to advertise or draw people in
so we decided to have our event with El Rio.” Vega and Zuleta estimated that 1,000 people attended the four-hour fair. “I think it’s very important for people to come to events like this,”
Zuleta said. “A lot of the time it’s very hard to get in to see a doctor. We provide a lot of information and screenings for free and even though we can’t give definitive diagnoses, we can definitely give doctors a guide for

what they should do.” Local agencies, including the National Parks Service, the Tucson Police Department and the UA University Physicians Healthcare, were also at the fair. “This is really the perfect opportunity to get our services out to the community,” said Deborah Montgomery, the community and member outreach coordinator for University Family Care, a division of University Physicians Healthcare. “Getting the word out, answering questions, and providing information for people, that’s what we’re doing here.” According to Zuleta, more than 100 pharmacy students volunteered for the event in various capacities. Evan Hood, a first-year pharmacy graduate student, helped organize the three speakers for the event. “We want people to learn what pharmacists can do,” Hood said. “We don’t just give out medication and fulfill prescriptions, we can also do screenings. We want to increase awareness of the health disparities in the community.” Libby Giesler,a second-year pharmacy graduate student, administered asthma screenings at the fair. “So many people have diseases, simple things that could be controlled,” Giesler said.“Our main effort here is to save people trips to the hospital, which saves them money in the end.”

New question: Did you watch the Oscars?
Linguistics senior I’ve noticed that the buzz around campus seems to be about spring break — exciting plans and exotic destinations. So if you could spend your spring break anywhere in the world, where would you go? Hmmm, I haven’t really thought about it. But let’s say Switzerland. Switzerland? That’s a unique place to spend spring break. Why Switzerland? Oh, my sister lives there. It would be cool to visit her. Your sister lives there? Does she make chocolate? I hear they have awesome chocolate over there. Chocolate? I wish. No, she works for some travel agency. Well, I’m not exactly sure what she does, but it’s like a travel agency. They give tour groups and that kind of thing. Too bad not of chocolate factories. But you would rather go to the cold of Switzerland than go somewhere warm and sunny and party with, say, girls in bikinis? (Laughs.) No, that’s not really me. I’m a more laidback kind of guy, not really of the party hard type. OK, so let’s say you were able to go on this dream getaway. What would you do in Switzerland? I don’t think the beach is an option! Eh, probably ski the Alps or something. Ah, so you are a skier? No, but I could learn. Aren’t you afraid of breaking your leg or something? It is the Alps, you know. Not really. But what if you did break your leg? What would you do then? Well, I would go to the hospital. Touché. (Laughs.) OK, so what are you actually doing for spring break since Switzerland is a no-go? Well, I would say that I would go visit my parents, but that would really be kind of difficult at the moment considering they are in Africa. Wow. Parents in Africa, a sister in Switzerland, your family seems like a bunch of world travelers. Yeah, pretty much. And my aunt is always flying to Asia. Do you plan to travel in the future? Definitely after I graduate. I don’t know where I’ll end up, but I’m not staying here. So are you going anywhere for spring break then? Oh, well maybe just visiting friends in Phoenix. That’s not very exotic. Well, I do get to go to Switzerland to visit my sister this summer. Dreams do come true! —Dallas Williamson

Paramedics hail ‘hero’ boy from Arizona bus crash SACATON, Ariz. — A bilingual fourth grader hurt in an Arizona bus accident that killed six people and injured more than a dozen others translated from an ambulance stretcher for busy rescue workers as they hurried to set up a triage center, authorities said Saturday. Oscar Rodriguez of Las Vegas was labeled a hero by firefighters and paramedics for helping them communicate with non-English speaking passengers just after Friday’s predawn crash on an interstate. “This kid stayed calm and was more brave than any other veteran I’ve worked with,” said Kenneth Leslie, a paramedic
who, with his partner, was the first to arrive at the scene. The bus was traveling from the central Mexican state of Zacatecas to Los Angeles. It entered the United States at El Paso, Texas, and was headed to Phoenix to change drivers when it hit a pickup truck, veered onto the left shoulder of the road, overcorrected and rolled. The roof of the bus was crushed and its windows were knocked out. Rodriguez, 11, was one of 22 passengers aboard the bus when it crashed at about 5:30 a.m. on the Gila River Indian Reservation, some 25 miles south of downtown Phoenix.
Rodriguez and 15 others suffered injuries, including head injuries and broken spines and pelvises. More than a dozen people remained hospitalized Saturday, including the bus driver who was among nine listed in critical condition at area hospitals. Federal transportation officials said the bus, owned by Van Nuys, Calif.-based Tierra Santa Inc., was operating illegally. The company was told in April and again in December not to transport passengers across state lines. — The Associated Press

Bullock, ‘Transformers’ make Razzies worst list
LOS ANGELES — Sandra Bullock warmed up for the Academy Awards with a stop at the Razzies to collect a dubious honor: a worst-actress prize for her romantic comedy flop “All About Steve.” Bullock swung by the Razzies on the eve of her expected triumph at Sunday’s Oscars, where she is considered the favorite to win best actress for “The Blind Side.” If she wins Sunday, Bullock will be the first person to win an Oscar and a Razzie over the same weekend. “I think this is an extraordinary award,” said Bullock, who had promised throughout awards season that if she won the Razzie, Sandra Bullock she would accept it in person.“And I didn’t realize that, in Hollywood, all you had to do was say you’d show up, and then you’d get the award. If I’d known that, I would have said I was appearing at the Oscars a long time ago.” “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” was picked as last year’s worst picture and won two other Razzies, worst director for Michael Bay and worst screenplay for Ehren Kruger, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Bay and his team probably will not lose any sleep over it. Though reviled by critics, “Transformers” took in $402.1 million domestically, No. 2 on the 2009 boxoffice chart behind “Avatar.” Bullock, who also shared the Razzie for worst screen couple with “All About Steve” co-star Bradley Cooper, was the first acting winner to show up at the Razzies since Halle Berry won worst actress for “Catwoman” five years ago. As she took the stage, Bullock pulled a little red wagon filled with DVDs of“All About Steve,”saying she was giving a copy to everyone in the audience of about 300. Bullock implied that many Razzie voters had not actually seen the movie but cast ballots for her hoping to get her to show up at the awards. Bullock said if they watched the DVD — “I mean really watch it” — and decided it was not the worst performance of the year after all, then she would come back next year and “give back the Razzie. … then we’ll go drink afterwards.” The worst-actor Razzie went to siblings Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas for“Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience.” — The Associated Press

The schedule of classes changes to UAccess, the replacement system for Student Link, starting this week. The student center, which is already the hub for some student financial aid and biographical information, will look to incorportate the schedule of classes before students start registration at the end of March. “We’ve been working on it for so long that to introduce it to students is really exciting,” said Suellyn Hull, co-director of the Mosaic project, which features the UAccess system. Students can access the new schedule of classes through a directed link under Student Link or through the UA homepage. A tutorial under the WebReg section of
Student Link shows the navigation basics in a five-minute video. On Tuesday, there will be a live show from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Gallagher Theater of the Student Union Memorial Center to help students acclimate themselves to the new system, said Kay Stevens Beasock, the organizational communications manager for the Mosaic project. “That will be the first glimpse of the new system,” Beasock said. The session will also be the simplist way for users to become familiar with UAccess. “Even if they do not read anything, the videos will help students learn the new system,” said Tom Bourgeois, co-director of the Mosaic project. The new schedule of classes offers
three different sets of criteria to search for classes and is more userfriendly, according to the Mosaic team. Three drop-downs for course career, class level, course subject or exact course number will help students find the the class that works for their schedule and academic requirements. After a selection is made, students can see the first three selections for each category that meets the specifications, and a simple button-click then reveals all classes filling the entered requirements. The next launch date is March 22, which will allow students to place these choices into a shopping cart called a ‘Cat Cart.’ During their scheduled registration date and time, students can register.

Serial cereal eaters Boxx it out By Laura Donovan Arizona Daily Wildcat
Twelve UA students participated in a free cereal-eating contest Sunday at the Cereal Boxx. The contest was held in honor of National Cereal Day. The Cereal Boxx, 943 E. University Blvd., has done several cereal-eating contests before in previous semesters.
I can eat pretty fast, and it’s cool to get free breakfast on a Sunday.
— Fred Nelson, music performance master’s student, cereal eating contestant
The event was open to the public, but was mostly geared toward students, said Terra Schacht, Cereal Boxx owner. “It’s not about endurance, it’s about speed,” Schacht told the first round of contestants. To win the contest, contestants had to eat two bowls of Cap’n Crunch cereal with fat free milk. The participants who finished with
the three fastest times won the contest. Contestants were ordered not to spill their cereal or milk. Physiology senior Alfonso Robles won first place with a time of two minutes and 16 seconds. The first prize was a $50 Cereal Boxx gift card. The second prize was a Cereal Boxx T-shirt and third prize was a colossal cereal bar, created by the Cereal Boxx staff. “I am very happy to have won first place, but I’m feeling sick right now,”Robles said. “I had La Salsa for lunch beforehand.” Contestant and pre-business freshman Danica Koestner was not surprised by Robles’ win: “Alfonso Robles is a resident assistant, so he’s good with problem solving strategies.” Salvador “Buddy” Lopez, a master’s student in music, won second place with a time of three minutes. “The Cereal Boxx has been good to me,” Lopez said. Chris Philips, a real estate investor, came in third place with a time of three minutes and 25 seconds. All participants were required to sign a waiver before the contest. “The waiver is meant to protect (the Cereal Boxx),” Schacht said. “You enter at your own risk.” Fred Nelson, a master’s student in music performance, participated in the contest because of his appreciation for cereal and the Cereal Boxx, which he frequents at least once a week.
“I sometimes skip class to come here,” Nelson said. “I can eat pretty fast, and it’s cool to get free breakfast on a Sunday.” Nelson also appreciated that the Cereal Boxx is open late and that they deliver. The Cereal Boxx is open from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. and delivers on Thursdays and Fridays. “We got lots of requests from students who say they study late and like to eat after they study, and not a lot of other places are open at that time,” Schacht said. The Cereal Boxx started the delivery service during finals week of the fall 2009 semester. “We’ve gotten a good response so far,” Schacht said. The contest, which was held outdoors, lasted half an hour. Participants endured heavy rainfall and wind in the last five minutes. Contestants used different strategies to pace themselves. Pre-business freshman Travis Marr drank his cereal milk before digging into his Cap’n Crunch. Lopez chugged his cereal and held the bowl up to his face, causing milk to spill down his chin. “I’ll take whatever free lunch I can get,” Marr said of the contest. Koestner reported having cuts on her gums in the aftermath of the contest. “It was an interesting experience,” Koestner said. “I’m glad I did it.” The Cereal Boxx plans on holding the same contest every year on National Cereal Day.

ASUA candidate endorsements A
s the elected representatives for the nearly 40,000 students at this university, the candidates for Associated Students of the University of Arizona Senate should serve as a cross-section of the diverse student body. They should know what the students want, know what they need and endeavor to promote the interests of the students in their proposed programs. The platforms of this year’s ASUA candidates extend the spectrum of good to really horrible, from promoting the representation of the students to throwing a concert/ party/festival to promote love and understanding (and, probably, rainbows and smiles). The majority of the candidates are young, inexperienced and ill-equipped to function as a legislative body of a government that does anything more than select a prom theme. Some may think ASUA doesn’t do anything and that these elections don’t matter, but voters must also remember that the organization has a 2009-10 budget of $1.5 million generated by students. Different voters expect different standards from their elected officials, and a true representative body will reflect these expectations as well as possible. Each voter must decide whether we really need another film festival, whether ASUA should draft referendums on important political issues such as gun control and whether these senators really represent the sum of this student body. What ASUA and the people it claims to represent don’t need is another crop of drones who think a shuttle to Target and condom fashion show (two real platforms from this year’s spread) will do anything to fix the real problems that affect today’s Wildcats. We don’t need another candidate who thinks an attempt to revitalize Tucson’s downtown is what the students need. What we need are senators who understand that they are elected not to throw parties and take pretty press photos but to represent and remain accountable to their constituents.
Endorsements for senate: Trevor Hill Though he placed only 12th in the primary elections last week, Hill is one of the few candidates that is campaigning not on costly additional programs and more concerts but on representation. From his platform: “ASUA’s main job is to be the voice of the student body and represent them … As such, I believe any issue that requires funds from the students should be presented and approved by the students.” Hill has also expressed that he would like to expand the ASUA Senate from ten seats, which makes it the least representative student governmental body in the Pacific 10 COnference schools, to twenty at-large Senate seats. “We have the technology to determine what students want,” Hill said. If you are interested in ASUA being more of a government than a party planning committee with bloated coffers, a vote for Hill is, hopefully, a vote for a change. Jarrett Benkendorfer Like Hill, Benkendorfer’s campaign slogan is the forgivably punned “Give U A voice in the 2010-2011 ASUA Senate.” In his platform, Benkendorfer says, “The Senate is in place to specifically vote in favor of its constituents.” His plans include polling the students and creating a newsletter about ASUA Senate proceedings to “let them know what issues will be brought up [in Senate meetings] and how the Senate is keeping up on their campaign promises.” Though his plans for expanding the Undergraduate Council may be a bit misguided, Benkendorfer’s platform is also refreshingly void of plans to make new rules or “create” programs that already exist, as some of his fellow candidates plan on doing.
Endorsement for administrative vice president: Hillary Davidson According to ASUA’s Web site, “The Administrative Vice President is responsible for assisting the directors in establishing a working budget (and) planning events … The position basically entails overseeing all 15 programs and services and ensuring that all is functioning as planned, as well as being knowledgeable about other events in ASUA.”Though both candidates have experience with and knowledge of ASUA, Davidson’s stronger emphasis on student involvement makes her the more likely candidate. In addition to promoting existing programs and ambitious individual plans for keeping rising freshman, underclassmen and upperclassmen involved in campus life, Davidson plans to hold town hall-style meetings with community leaders every other week. She also plans to create an e-mail distribution list to promote programs happening on campus. Though some of her programs, including those involving bringing speakers to campus and events for potential freshman, could prove costly, Davidson’s enthusiasm and experience make her a strong choice for this position.

MAILBAG Letter to the editor Just in case you don’t know me, let me write a little bit about myself. My name is Kirk Sibley. I currently work for the Intel Corporation here in Chandler, Ariz., as a senior engineer. I own a house, have a good job, pay my taxes back into the system and do what I can to donate a portion of my earnings to charitable organizations. When I was a UA student, I was heavily involved in student activities and leadership roles and was the school’s mascot, Wilbur the Wildcat. I enjoyed a complete UA experience while going to school full time and received the quality education that has allowed me to become a leader in my community and a productive member of society that is capable of contributing back to the system. What’s not widely known about me is that I paid my entire way through college. I grew up next to the I-10 freeway in the Sunnyside Unified School District on the south side of Tucson in a single parent home where my mom worked as a waitress to support two kids on her own. This was hardly the ideal household situation to produce future college students. But UA was my dream, and I was determined to go there one day. My first year in school I almost starved. But even with all the challenges, I believed in myself and had determination to finish. Why am I writing this? Because, quite frankly, if I had to do the same thing today I would not be able to. Tuition up until about 2002 was just a little over a thousand dollars a semester for in-state students. Now, the university is proposing tuition in excess of $7,000 per year. But, since the early part of the decade, the average wage of Arizonans has remained flat, making education less affordable with each passing year. To top it all off, even the city of Tucson is thinking about roasting the only golden calf they have left, the student body, by raising taxes on them to fill their coffers. In all honesty, I am disgusted. While the university and the Tucson community continue to take advantage of the students by raising prices, the number of students who can no longer access education will continue to grow.
In order for Arizona to promote high-paying job growth, they need to have a percentage of the demographic that is educated to attract the kinds of companies that will be good for the state in the long term. These companies, such as Intel, make billions in revenue and provide jobs for the community that will allow the standard of living to rise. By raising the tuition, you sustain the university in the short term to meet budgetary short falls but push the average level of education lower by making it more and more inaccessible. Over time, this becomes a vicious circle that makes Arizona a non-competitive state and player in the global market. I think back about my own experience and what it was like to achieve a dream of mine. I think back to the national championship basketball team I got to represent in 1997 and the 12-1 football season I was a part of in 1998. I think back to the time I decided to leave home and pay for school because school was important enough and how that one decision was the keystone that changed my life. I graduated, got a good job, bought a house, became a leader in the community, and have memories to last a lifetime, all of which could never happen if I had to make that same decision today. So when the UA and Tucson propose solving their own financial problems, think of people like myself who would have never stood a chance. And while the university says it is necessary to maintain a quality education, what good is a quality education when the pricing creates a growing uneducated population in our state? What good is a quality education when the students who graduate have so much debt that they are strapped for cash for years as they try to pay off their student loans? It leaves them with no discretionary income to reinvest, buy a home, spend their money on large ticket items that generate sales tax dollars for the state and will most likely force them to go to another state to get a decent paying job. Raising tuition is not the answer. —Kirk Sibley University of Arizona alumnus Intel Corporation

The Eighth Amendment of the United States Constitution states,“Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”That provision has nothing to do with this discussion. But a solution is plain: Cancel classes on the Friday before break and mandate instructors to attach some sort of major due date or exam to that Thursday. Students will get an extra day to beat traffic and professors can plan their lessons without fear of showing up to 25 students in a 200-seat auditorium. Sounds like a reasonable compromise. It may happen that this switch changes nothing and students will be more encouraged to skip the whole week before. So be it. Perhaps then the burden will fall more squarely on those whose hands won’t be raised when it counts. — Tom Knauer is a first-year law student. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Most of us “create” programs don’t care about this a the UA already has, fraction of the amount wanting to take on we care about Nic problems that are Wise’s game-winning the responsibility of buzzer beater. It would the Arizona Board Anna Swenson be nothing short of of Regents and the Opinions editor astonishing if the voter UA administration, turnout was anywhere near the 14,545 promoting initiatives in which people it takes to fill McKale Center. students have shown no interest But our general apathy should not and displaying a general lack allow unqualified, inexperienced of knowledge as to what a students to claim the 10 ASUA Senate representative should do. seats and over $1 million budget of the The top finisher, Garrett Voge, largest representative body at the UA. based his campaign on three areas These 10 elected officials will be that have almost nothing to do with making decisions regarding clubs, current students. He want to improve fees and drafting referendums on Tucson’s downtown, which he says in topics as controversial as gun laws. his platform is “unsafe, outdated and These decisions will serve as the in need of a facelift.”While that may decisions of all students. When the be true, urban renewal is hardly what administration says they have “talked an ASUA senator is elected for or had to the students,” they have consulted jurisdiction to change. Voge would our representatives in ASUA. So also like to help students clean up before you log onto Facebook instead the parks and to be good role models of voting or cast your ballot for for children. While these are all cute that one chick who came by your ideas, senators are elected to gather
the opinion and promote the interests of current UA students, not use those students as manpower to paint murals in downtown. Nowhere in Voge’s platform is any mention of the ways in which he will glean the opinions of the students or promote their needs. Second-place finisher Taylor Bilby would like to organize a concert that would “motivate the entire student body to fight as one for a cure for cancer.” While that’s a noble enough goal, the UA already has the Wildcat World Fair and various programs that raise money for cancer research, including CATwalk. Any student who has been here for longer than eight months knows ASUA’s track record with concerts and why they might not be such a great campaign point. The problem here is that Bilby, and most of her fellow candidates, haven’t been here long enough to know about the $1 million loss at last year’s Last Smash Platinum Fail – they’re too young and inexperienced to accurately represent the students of this university. Bilby and her fellow candidates are certainly a nice, smart people. They also have no idea what their constituents want or need. If we could all hold hands and sing about lowering student fees, an accurate and effective representative
body and a cure for cancer, then the current field of candidates would be, like, totally perfect. But as reality still plagues UA students and occasionally ASUA, we need senators that will endeavor to gather student opinion and create programs as their constituents show interest. The above are only two examples of some of the utterly absurd proposals of senate candidates. Many mentioned increasing diversity of incoming freshman and improving freshman retention rates, problems that only UA administration and ABOR are responsible for. If ASUA was not already puppet enough, promoting such programs places the concerns of the administration and the state of Arizona above those of current UA students. Late Friday afternoon, five of the top six primary finishers were on the UA Mall, wearing little clothing and bearing signs reading, “I’d rather be naked than not be the change I wish to see.”This is undoubtedly an allusion to the famous Gandhi quote, “Be the change you wish to see in world,” paired with an awkward homage to the PETA ads about wearing fur. Senate elections are not about Best Legs, Most Popular, or Most Nonsensical Poster Slogan. The fact that most of the 2010-11 senators
’Cats and dogs
campaigned on issues students don’t care about and appeared practically naked on the Mall is much too revealing — both of candidates’ bodies, professionalism and grasp of what senators do beyond wearing red polos on Wednesdays. The candidates for president and executive vice president are the shining hope of these elections. Though many senate candidates threw around“transparency”like a cheer captain’s pompoms, executive vice president candidate Katherine Weingartner was one of the few who plans to do anything about student governmental accountability. Though both Weingartner and presidential candidate Emily Fritze are running unopposed for their offices, the two are well-spoken, capable candidates who seem committed to dealing with issues students actually care about. Senate candidates take note: We don’t care about condom fashion shows and film festivals. We care about smart, capable candidates who know what they can and should do for the students of this university — represent them. — Anna Swenson is a sophomore majoring in English.

What is considered “high risk” when you are talking about sexual behavior for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)?
A. There are many factors that put a person at higher risk for getting an STD: • unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse • multiple partners (the more partners, the greater the risk) • sex under the influence of drugs or alcohol • sex with an injection drug user • sex with a partner who has/had STDs • sex with a partner who has ever traded sex for money or drugs Conversely, the safest sex occurs in a long term, mutually monogamous relationship with an uninfected partner. If that is not your situation, you can still reduce your STD risks: 1. Cover up: If you have sex with a penis (or own one yourself) put a condom on it, each and every time, from start to finish. Consistent and correct condom use greatly reduces transmission of STDs and pregnancy. Use latex dams for oral sex. You can buy condoms and dams at the Campus Health Pharmacy (and other stores) at a very low cost.
2. Be selective about who you sleep with. The fewer people you expose your body to, the lower your odds of getting an STD. Ask your partner about their STD history (easier said than done, but worth the awkwardness when compared to STD consequences, treatment, or worries). Get to know your partner’s testing status and what they do in their spare time (injecting drugs, perhaps). Also, be very aware that people may lie in order to have sex with you, so if you have a bad “gut feeling” about a prospective partner, pay attention to it, and skip the “mattress mambo.” 3. Get vaccinated against Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), Hepatitis A and B. 4. Enjoy low risk activities that don’t involve penetration (like fondling, kissing, body-to-body rubbing, or manual stimulation). While no sexual activity is risk free (except, perhaps, masturbation), if you are going to get naked, horny, and intimate, you can lower your risks of STDs and still have sexy fun.

policebeat By Bridgette Doran Arizona Daily Wildcat
Wall doesn’t mask weed smell
A University of Arizona Police Department officer was performing a security check at the Tyndall Avenue Parking Garage on March 1 at 12:27 p.m., when he saw three men trying to hide behind a wall on the top level. When the officer stopped his patrol car, he could smell a strong amount of burnt marijuana in the air. The three men immediately told the officer they had been smoking marijuana. They were identified as UA students, two with Arizona driver’s licenses and one with a California driver’s license. When the officer asked for the men to turn over all the marijuana and paraphernalia they had on them, one of the men took a plastic baggie out of his pocket with marijuana and a metal smoking pipe inside. The pipe had burnt marijuana in it. Another one of the men took a glass smoking pipe and a wooden smoking pipe, both with fresh marijuana packed inside them, out from his jacket pocket. The third man removed a plastic bag from his pocket that had marijuana in it. The officer asked the men where they had purchased the marijuana and one of the men said he got it from a UA student, but would not say his name. The other man told the officer he bought it from a man on East Drachman Street and Park Avenue. The third man said he was only smoking the marijuana and had not purchased any drugs. All three men were diverted to the Dean of Students for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. The marijuana and pipes were placed into property as evidence. The total weight of the marijuana was 14.3 grams.
Pepper spray OK for French student
The Colonia de la Paz Residence Hall community director called UAPD on Wednesday at 1:31 p.m. to report a student using pepper spray in the dorm. The director told the officer over the phone that on Feb. 25 at 10:30 p.m. the student was spraying pepper spray in the hallways of La Paz and had been spoken to by his resident assistant. UAPD was not called. The director told the officer that they have had behavior issues with the student before and the student claims that because he is from France he does not have to follow the rules here. The student has a local Tucson address and it is unknown if he is actually from another country. There were two girls who had been affected by the pepper spray, but their names had not been recorded. There were no other victims in the incident.
Library only access to homosexual porn
A UAPD officer responded to the UA Main Library on Wednesday at 1:17 p.m. because there was a man watching pornography on the library computers. When the officer arrived he spoke with a library employee that said he walked by a man on a computer on the third floor and could see he was watching porn. The man showed the officer which computer he had been sitting at and they found a blue jacket and CD player. Another employee also told the officer that the same man has been warned several times in the past about watching pornography on the computers. At 1:45 p.m., the officer observed the computer at a distance to see if the man would return. Twenty minutes later the officer decided to switch on the monitor and saw that the man was still logged in. Looking through the Internet history on the computer, the officer could see that several pornography Web sites had been visited, and most of them involved male homosexual activity. The man returned back to the desk while the officer was on the computer and the officer escorted the man out of the library to talk. While talking to the man, another library staff member told the officer that they had stopped dealing with the man about the porn and decided to call the police because he had a tendency to get agitated and start yelling. The man told the officer he was sorry for watching the porn. He said that he was bisexual and the only place he had access to homosexual porn was in the library. He said that his desire to watch men outweighed the previous warnings he had received. The officer placed the man under arrest for trespassing and transported him to Pima County Jail. An exclusionary order was also given to the man and he was warned about trespassing on UA property again.

A Cochise Residence Hall desk assistant called UAPD on Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. after receiving a FedEx package in the mail for a student that smelled like marijuana. When the officer arrived, he could smell the same odor. The man to whom the package was addressed was called to the front desk. The student told the officer that he did not know the name on the front of the package, but recognized the area it was coming from, Ranchos Palos Verde, Calif. The officer was given permission to open the package and inside he found a light gray T-shirt rolled up and taped. When he unrolled the T-shirt he found two bundles of marijuana and a small red container holding marijuana buds. One of the bundles weighed 13.8 grams and had “green crack” written on the outside. The other bundle weighed 14.1 grams and had “GDP” written on it. The small red container had 4.9 grams worth of marijuana buds inside, and on the outside was a medical marijuana prescription. The officer called the return address phone number and spoke with the father of the man whose name was written on the package. The father said that the two men were friends and when the student had been in the area the past weekend, he dropped the package off and asked that it be mailed to his dorm. The student was then brought to the UAPD main station and read his rights. He stuck with his original story but said that he had a legal marijuana prescription for his back pain and his friend had offered to mail him the package, but he didn’t think he would actually do it. The package with all of its contents was entered into UAPD property as evidence. The student was also finger-printed to see if his prints matched those that were on the red container. A Code of Conduct referral was sent to the Dean of Students.

Close calls — Overtime and at the buzzer
Arizona senior point guard Nic Wise hoists his Senior Day plaque after his final game in McKale Center. Wise went out in style, as he scored the game-winning layup in double overtime against USC on Saturday.
By Vincent Balistreri Arizona Daily Wildcat The crowd of 14,591 in McKale Center grew nervously silent. As teammates on the court looked away, and the ones on the bench linked their arms together, Arizona guard Kyle Fogg stood alone to shoot the most important free throws of his life. After being fouled on a 3-point attempt with .2 seconds on the clock and Arizona down 68-71, it was up to Fogg to knock down three straight free throws to send the game to overtime. “I wish I could tell you I got ice water going through my veins,” Fogg said, partly joking when asked how he felt stepping up to shoot the pressure free throws. “But man I was shaking, especially with this being Nic (Wise’s) last game at home, and I didn’t want him to go out like that. “It’s a great feeling, especially that we went to double overtime to get the win,” he added. Fogg knocked each free throw as USC players made several attempts to rattle the sophomore guard. “Yeah man, they were trying to get me rattled and pushing me around and stuff,” Fogg said. In contrast, Fogg’s teammates left him alone during the time leading up to the pressure-packed free throws. “I was looking, searching for help and my teammates were putting their heads down, as if to say you better not miss,” Fogg said. But his teammates insisted that they were doing other things during that time. “We were praying for him,”Wise said. After Fogg made the third free throw, McKale Center went crazy and his teammates huddled around him in celebration. “It felt like the world coming off my shoulders, and I knew we could win it from there,” Fogg said. “Nic told me, ‘We got this, we got this. Keep playing hard we’ll finish it off.’” After the game, Arizona head coach Sean Miller called Fogg’s trip to the free throw line FOGG, page 12

Baseball takes two of three from Fullerton By Mike Schmitz Arizona Daily Wildcat
Gordon Bates/Arizona Daily Wildcat
Redshirt junior Stacie Chambers beats out the throw to home plate in Arizona’s game with Idaho State on Sunday at Hillenbrand Stadium. The game was called due to rain in the bottom of the second inning, with the Wildcats leading 5-0.
’Cats run rule in Game 1, rained out in Game 2 By Nicole Dimtsios Arizona Daily Wildcat
A season after Arizona softball literally blasted the NCAA homerun record out of the park, the balls are still flying over the fence. That story was no different in Game 1 on Sunday when the No. 2 Wildcats (16-1) defeated the St. John’s Red Storm (6-4) 13-5 in five innings. Nine of the Wildcats’ 13 runs crossed the plate due to homers. Although Arizona was only able to complete one of two scheduled games on Sunday, it put on an offensive show in Game =1 before play was called. Bad weather halted Game 2 play, preventing players and coaches from talking to the media. Against St. John’s, senior pitcher Sarah Akamine (5-1) struggled early and gave up two runs in the first inning. The Wildcats’ offense answered quickly however, using pitch selection as their main weapon against opposing pitcher Linzee Sumrall. Sumrall (3-3) failed to throw a strike until her eighth pitch and walked the first three UA hitters. Catcher Stacie Chambers was able to make up the early deficit by cashing in with a 3-RBI double. She eventually scored off of a Baillie Kirker blast that extended Arizona’s lead to 5-2 after one inning. Kirker’s homer was the first of three on the day for the Wildcats. Fellow freshman Brigette Del Ponte and sophomore Lini Koria would also play long ball for a share of the team lead in homeruns. All three players hit their sixth long ball of the
season against St. John’s. Individually, six is the magic number. On the season’s 17 games, however, Arizona has already taken 30 balls over the outfield walls. As in the first inning, missing the plate was the downfall of Sumrall and the Red Storm. In the second inning, Sumrall’s walks loaded the bases before Del Ponte hit her fourth homerun in as many games, this time adding a grand slam to the mix. Akamine recovered in the rest of the game, giving up four earned runs while striking out five. She did not allow a run after the third inning. Arizona’s game against the Idaho State Bengals (3-9) was canceled after play was suspended in the bottom half of the second inning. The Wildcats saw success off a Brittany Lastrapes double and two consecutive bunts by center fielder Lauren Schutzler and short stop K’Lee Arredondo before Chambers cleared the bases again. Del Ponte would drive in Chambers off a single, giving the Wildcats a 5-0 lead before play stopped. High winds began to blow through Hillenbrand Stadium, and play was eventually called when the rain matched the intensity.
Pitcher Kenzie Fowler did not see action in Sunday’s game, after head coach Mike Candrea said the freshman “tweaked” her knee. She did, however, throw in the bullpen during Game 1 against St. John’s.

The youngest baseball team in the Pacific 10 Conference faced its biggest test of the season this past weekend with a three-game series against powerhouse California State University, Fullerton. But the Wildcats (6-4) didn’t play like a group with 17 freshmen, 21 newcomers and 23 underclassmen — they rose to the occasion and took two of three games from the No. 18 Titans (4-6). “No matter who you play if you win two out of three you feel pretty good,” said head coach Andy Lopez.“But obviously with a club like Fullerton coming in, it’s a good (weekend) for a young club.” The Wildcats kicked the series off in a big way, thanks to the late-game heroics of freshman third baseman Seth Mejias-Brean. With the game knotted up at seven in the eleventh inning and freshman shortstop Alex Mejia on second, Mejias-Brean sent a single to left field that lifted the Wildcats over the Titans, 8-7. “I just got a fastball and I jumped on it,” said MejiasBrean, who finished the weekend with four RBIs. “He’s got a tremendous amount of ability,” Lopez added of Mejias-Brean. “I think he’s starting to settle in and relax and start playing the game.” But Mejias-Brean wasn’t the only freshman that stepped up Friday night. Freshman pitcher Kurt Heyer set the tone for the Wildcats, as he limited the Titans to two runs through 5 1/3 innings, striking out eight and not walking a single batter. “It was a good feeling to beat them,” Heyer said.“They kind of have this mindset that they invented the game, and it was good to take that away from them.” Whether it was on the mound, in the batters box or on the field, the UA freshmen stepped up to the plate against the No. 4 preseasonranked Titans. “We had freshmen all over the field. Freshmen at the beginning of the game. A freshman gets a big hit out there and a freshman scores,” Lopez said. “They’re getting old quick. I’m proud of the way they compete.” With the Wildcats riding high after the Friday-night game, they hit a speed bump in Game 2 in the form of Fullerton starter Noe Ramirez. Ramirez stole the show, as he outdueled UA starter
Kyle Simon on a way to a Titans 6-1 victory. Ramirez went the distance, striking out nine batters, while allowing only one run on five hits in nine innings of work. “I think it was the case of just watching a real, real stellar performance,” Lopez said of Ramirez, whom the Wildcats recruited heavily but couldn’t get into Arizona due to academics. “He threw first-pitch strikes. He executed his off-speed pitch when he needed to,” he added. “I’m not going to take anything away from Ramirez. He pitched an outstanding ballgame.” Simon, the preseason favorite for the No. 1 starter spot, occupied the other end of the spectrum, as he only lasted 3 1/3 innings, during which he yielded five runs (four earned) on seven hits, a walk and a hit batsman. But Arizona bounced back in Game 3, as they jumped out to a 9-0 lead after four innings, and rode the arm of junior Daniel Workman the rest of the way to a 10-1 victory. The redshirt right-hander went six innings, allowing only one run (unearned) off of seven hits and zero walks, while striking out three. “It’s very encouraging,” Lopez said of Workman’s performance.“I think we’re starting to settle in a bit on a couple rotation spots.” Workman has now only yielded one run over the past 10 1/3 innings. “I’m still getting it going with the arm so the pitch count was up,”added Workman, who had been dealing with BASEBALL, page 10

For all the excitement that the Pacific 10 Conference schedule can bring, it can also bring disappointment. And the Intercollegiate Tennis Association No. 39 Arizona women’s tennis team found out the hard way this weekend. The women (8-4) dropped both of their matches on the weekend, against Washington and Washington State, to open up their conference schedule. “This weekend was very disappointing for us,” said head coach Vicky Maes. “The team did not come together mentally and it cost us two important matches.” Washington (9-2) won all three doubles matches to gain momentum, and then finished off the 5-2 win with four wins on the singles courts. Freshman Alexandrina Naydenova and senior Claire Rietsch were the only victorious Wildcats on Friday, with Naydenova winning 6-2, 6-2 on the third court, and Rietsch winning 7-5, 3-6, (10-8) on the sixth. Sophomore Sarah Landsman, the No. 106-ranked singles player in the country, won the first set 6-1 against her opponent, No. 7 Denise Dy, but then lost the next two, 0-6, 4-6. Against Washington State (8-5), the Wildcats started out with two strong doubles wins by the teams of sophomore Natasha Marks and Naydenova on the first court, along with Landsman and senior Ariane Masschelein on court three. UA couldn’t take advantage of the earned point, however, and lost all six singles matches en route to a 6-1 defeat. Five of the six matches went into a decisive third set, so the overall match was much closer than the final score showed. “Both times we had a ton of opportunities and, both times, we talked ourselves out of winning,” Maes said. “The bottom line is that things will not get better unless the team takes a major step forward in terms of battling mentally through an entire match. It’s completely in our hands.”

W-tennis falter at hands of Washington schools
Facing Santa Clara and Nebraska was supposed to be a weekend to get the Arizona men’s tennis team back into the swing of things. Exiting the weekend, the Wildcats were half way there. After a strong 6-1 victory over Santa Clara (7-4) in which UA didn’t have any matches go into a third set, the momentum was supposed to carry through to Nebraska (8-3) on Sunday. Five of six singles matches went the Wildcats’ way on Friday. On Court 1, Arizona senior Jay Goldman defeated Kyle Dandan 7-5, 6-1. Senior Andres Arango was victorious over Brian Brogan 6-1, 6-2 on Court 2, and sophomore Jason Zafiros earned the win 6-3, 6-2 over Andrew Kells on Court 3. The Wildcats took care of business on the other courts and momentum was back in their favor after dropping matches against Denver and Texas Tech the week prior. It was obvious the team knew the importance of the wins, as they fought through many emotional points and were cheered on loudly by the teammates. But against Nebraska on Sunday, things didn’t exactly go as planned. The Huskers won 6-1 to give Arizona its first loss at home all season. Head coach Tad Berkowitz attributed the loss to the simple fact that they were just outplayed. “I thought we got out to a slow start but rebounded well in singles,”he said.“They countered well and withstood our momentum change and they just played better than us today.” After an early start to accommodate the possibility for rain later in the day, the team dropped the doubles point and then, as singles started, began dealing with unfavorable winds that had an effect on the players’ shots. As things were beginning to go UA’s way, the match was then put on rain delay for a little more than half an hour. Coming out again just didn’t work in the Wildcats’ favor. Ravid Hazi was the only victorious member of the team on Sunday, winning 6-1, 6-2. But despite the overall score, the match as a whole was much closer than represented. The Wildcats had a chance to win with Zafiros, Carrasco and Arango still playing, but all lost close matches.
Berkowitz did not think the rain delay had an effect on their momentum and that Nebraska just came out more focused. “I think we need to go out there and not put as much pressure on us to win and enjoy the match,” he said. “(We can) go out there and have fun playing instead of feeling like the weight is on our shoulders.”

W-HOOPS BRIEF Wildcats finish eighth, look ahead to Pac-10 Tournament The Arizona women’s basketball team was burned again by its inability to finish in Saturday’s loss against the No. 25 UCLA Bruins, 70-61, in Los Angeles. The Wildcats, (13-16, 6-12 Pacific 10 Conference) now plagued with a five-game losing streak, were unable to shake the Bruins’ (22-7, 15-3) late-game shooting and offensive penetration. At tip off, Arizona was firing on all cylinders. Freshman guard Davellyn Whyte kick-started Arizona’s offensive production with two early three-pointers that led to a 29-21 Arizona lead with 5:45 remaining in the first half. UCLA responded quickly, and headed into the locker room on a 16-4 run, resulting in a 35-31 Bruins lead at the break. The Bruins battled to maintain the lead after the second half began. A pair of baskets by forward Jasmine Dixon gave UCLA a 41-35 advantage early on in the second half. At 8:42, the Bruins took their first double-digit lead of the game, 52-42, on another Dixon score. Arizona got into foul trouble with 6:21 left as forward Soana Lucet, who had tallied up nine points and nine rebounds, fouled out, leaving the Wildcats with limited speed and power in the low post. Despite the loss of Lucet, the Wildcats were able to fight back with a 13-4 run and got within three on a basket by Whyte with three-and-a-half
minutes left in the game. The Wildcats’ shooting faltered as they missed three out of their next four shots. Attempts to foul the Bruins were deemed futile as UCLA hit their last 10 free throws. With their precision free-throw shooting, the Bruins stretched their lead to seven and held off the Wildcats until the end, winning 70-61. Arizona guard Reiko Thomas led the Wildcats with a season-high 20 points on the day. Senior guard Ashley Frazier helped her team with six assists in her last regular season game donning the cardinal and navy. The nonstop practice focus on rebounding paid off as Arizona almost managed to tie the Bruins on the boards, 42-41. Arizona commences its conference tournament play on Thursday against Washington State as the No. 8-seed after failing to qualify for the sixth place spot and first round bye that comes with it. Saddled with a heavy loss column, Arizona will need all the momentum that it can stir up going into the tournament. The Wildcats however, will be able to maintain confidence knowing that their regular season sweep of Washington State gives them a mental advantage going into Thursday’s contest. — Dan Kohler

Freshman starting pitcher Kurt Heyer winds up for a pitch during Arizona’s 8-7, extra-inning victory against California State University, Fullerton on Friday at Frank Sancet Stadium. In three starts Heyer has only walked one batter, while striking out 26.
Simon headed to the pen
Heading into the 2010 season, sophomore right-handed pitcher Kyle Simon was expected to be the ace of the staff. But in his last two starts, Simon has scuffled, to the tune of 10 runs (eight earned) off of 13 hits and six walks. Because of that inconsistency, head coach Andy Lopez and his staff have opted to send Simon to the bullpen. “Simon will go to the bullpen to work out of long relief,” Lopez said.“Kyle will help us out of the pen, but right now we need something more secure.” Simon will be starting Wednesday’s game against Saint Josephs, but will undoubtedly have to pitch his way back into the weekend rotation. Sophomore left-hander Bryce Bandilla is expected to take over Simon’s spot in the rotation for the time being. Bandilla relieved Simon on Saturday against Califorina State University, Fullerton, yielding only one run off of six hits in five innings of work.
“I don’t know that he’s better suited (as a starter), I just don’t really have another option,” Lopez said of starting Bandilla. “I don’t want to expose too many young guys. We’ve already kind of done that with Kurt Heyer.”
Heyer continues to make hitters swing the bat
Simply put, freshman starting pitcher Kurt Heyer does not give away bases. Through 17 innings, three starts, Heyer has only walked one batter. He currently boasts a remarkable 26:1, strikeout-to-walk ratio. “I feel like if I walk a guy, than there’s a real good chance that guy is going to score,”Heyer said.“I try to stay ahead of hitters and not fall behind. It ruins the tempo of the game.” In only three collegiate starts, Heyer has emerged as the unquestioned ace of the staff, and his absurdly low walk rate is undoubtedly one of the biggest reasons why.
Hale closer to closing?
It’s ten games into the season and the Wildcats have been searching for that guy to nail down saves in the ninth inning. “We’re having a hard time protecting leads in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings,” Lopez said. “We just don’t have a seasoned closer just yet.” But if there is a leading candidate, it is 5-foot-9, 155-pound freshman reliever Tyler Hale. “We’ll find (a closer),” said Lopez. “I really think Tyler Hale is going to be the guy. He just needs to locate his fastball.” Hale has pitched some big innings for Arizona already, and he’s been one of the most productive relievers for the Wildcats. In five appearances, he pitched 11 1/3 innings and allowed seven runs on nine hits. But a lot of those runs came from the two homeruns that he’s yielded, and the fact that he’s held opponents to a .214 average against him says a lot about his effectiveness. — Mike Schmitz
Track and field finish weekend on low note By Galo Mejia Arizona Daily Wildcat With the NCAA National Championship around the corner, this weekend was the final stretch for Arizona men and women’s track and field. However, the last-chance meets didn’t go as well as some athletes had hoped for. Junior LaTisha Holden and the women’s 4x400-meter relay team of Deanna Sullivan, Echos Blevins, Georganne Moline and Andrea Menhennet headed to Ames, Iowa, for the NCAA Qualifier at Lied Recreation Center on Saturday. But the women’s 4x400m team didn’t get the time they needed to move them up the descending order list for nationals, as they finished in seventh with a time of 3:39.40 — a school record for the women’s 4x400m. “It went good, but it could have gone better,”said redshirt sophomore Blevins. “We (achieved a personal record) but
we just had to run a lot faster than what we thought we had to.” “We wanted to go to nationals and that’s not going to happen,” she added. “But overall we had a good indoor season.” For Holden, things can only get better for her after falling during the 60m-hurdle race. “It’s just one of those days that I have to go forward from,” Holden said. “Just recover and hope that they bring more than 14 people to nationals.” Holden is currently ranked 17th in the 60m hurdle and will find out if she has been selected for nationals by Monday at the latest. “I’m going to continue training,” she said. “I’m not done and there’s still outdoor season.” For the Arizona men, senior Mohamud Ige was at the Alex Wilson Invitational in Notre Dame, Ind. He participated in the men’s 5000m run and finished 17th with a time of 14:26.47.

UA swim and dive finish third at Pac-10s
‘Full team’ quailifies for NCAA Championships for first time By Derek Lawrence Arizona Daily Wildcat In its debut as the top-ranked team in the nation, the Arizona men’s swim and dive team finished third at the Pacific 10 Conference Championships in Long Beach, Calif., this past weekend. This was the fourth consecutive year the Wildcats have finished in third-place at the Pac-10 Championships. “Our team did really well this weekend,” said senior Jack Brown. “We did what we needed to do here and have really set ourselves up for something spectacular in a few weeks.” Despite the third-place finish, the team viewed the experience at the Pac-10s as a positive one. “We fought together as a team as hard as we could and ended up beating USC which was a fully shaved and rested team,” said senior Jean Basson.“Also we now have a full team qualified for the NCAAs for the first time ever so I would say it was very successful.” No. 3 Stanford won the Pac-10 title for the 29th straight year, while No. 4 California placed runner-up for the seventh straight season. The UA was never able to move past third in the standings during the championships, mostly due to only one swimmer winning an ‘A’ heat. That win came on the last day of competitions when freshman Carl Mickelson won the 200-yard breaststroke with a time of 1:54.96. The win was the first postseason victory of Mickelson’s young collegiate career. The only other win for the UA came in the 200y fly where sophomore A.J. Tipton won the ‘B’ heat with a time of 1:44.19. Fellow sophomore Jordan Slaughter qualified for the ‘A’ heat and finished sixth. Brown was also a standout for the team despite being unable to get into the winner’s circle. He placed third in the 200y individual medley and second in the 400y individual medley. “I’m a little disappointed that I wasn’t able to defend my title in the 400 I.M., but overall I’m pleased with what happened and where I am,” Brown said. “I think I’m at a really good place going into nationals to contend for a title in all of my events.” Finishing second in the ‘B’ heat of the 500y freestyle was Basson. He also placed eighth in the 1650y freestyle. While most swimmers were happy with their performances, Basson wasn’t. “Obviously, I’m disappointed with how I swam,” Basson said. “I wanted to defend my two Pac-10 titles in the 800 relay and the 500 freestyle, but I have to keep the entire season in perspective. My focus is nationals and I think that in three weeks time I will be at my peak.” The Wildcats, who are usually strong in relay races, were unable to get better than third in any of the relay events. Arizona placed third in the 400y free relay, 200y medley relay, 200y free relay and the 400y medley relay. Not winning the Pac-10s this year has no affect on the Wildcats’ national title hopes. When the team won the national championship in 2008 it also finished third in the Pac-10. “We’ve never won a conference title in the history of our program and have still won a national championship,” Brown said. “Our priorities are different from other teams in our conference, and even considering that, we still swam extraordinarily well.” The UA came into this tournament not with the purpose of winning, but to improve its national title hopes. While the season-long goal has been a national championship the team can now officially turn its attention to that goal. The swimmers will begin to fully rest now. “We will just get as much rest as possible,” Basson said. “(We will) watch film from the weekend and fix any mistakes that we have made and then fine-tune our races to be as fast as possible in three weeks.” The UA will go into the NCAAs as the number one team in the nation, but many of the swimmers don’t think they should be considered an obvious favorite. “I don’t think you can look at it as clear favorites,” Brown said. “We have the potential to win the meet, but we’re all going to have to swim well and come together as a team.” While it’s unclear if they are favorites, the Wildcats will be a team to reckon with when the NCAA Championships get underway March 25. “I think we’re in a good spot to make great things happen,”Brown said.

Horne rebounds against USC after UCLA benching
the most pressurized situation in all of sports. “That is the most pressure-packed situation you can ever have,” Miller said. “That one is the putt at the Masters at about 10 feet away; it’s not for everyone. Give Kyle (Fogg) tremendous credit he gave us a chance to win the game.”
A game after being taken out of the starting lineup against UCLA, forward Jamelle Horne bounced back with 16 points and eight rebounds in the win against USC. “We’re a much better a team when he plays with the energy he played with (Saturday),” Miller said. “He really was active. That’s
the Jamelle Horne that makes our team so much better.” In the first half, when the Wildcats were down by as many as 11 points, it was Horne who kept the game close with his 11 first-half points. The Wildcats were down 32-21 with 5:26 remaining in the first half, and Horne seemed to take over scoring 10 points, bringing Arizona within five as the Wildcats trailed 38-33 at halftime. “It’s just the point in the season, it’s at the end where you want to finish strong as a player for yourself and your teammates,” Horne said. “Shots went down and my teammates continued to try to find me.” “Most importantly,” he added, “that threegame winning streak is great to be a part of.”
Wise: ‘I just wanted to win the game, it didn’t matter how’
think I held it in pretty well.” Wise hugged Jones at halfcourt and gave him much more than an average serving of humble pie. “I was basically telling him that it’s his turn now,”Wise said.“I’m handing over the keys to him. He’s the point guard of the future here.” Said Jones on Thursday:“We just knew we didn’t want to go out with a loss. It’s his last two games, we want to make sure it’s as best as possible going out.” Indeed it was the best possible way to conclude a regular season after three previous ones hitting every corner, nook and level beyond the college basketball spectrum. The senior did it against all odds. A little bit of zone, man-to-man and hybrid defenses have made Wise a defensive machine. A little bit of up-tempo, slow-it-down sets and high octane offenses have made Wise an offensive octave. He played little brother to Mustafa Shakur, Marcus Williams, Jerryd Bayless, Jordan Hill and Chase Budinger. For a few moments, even Brandon Jennings dazzled in fan popularity for those eager to see someone carry the Point Guard U tradition. Some of his friends and teammates gave up. Blue chips like J.P.

Five-star recruits like Abdul Gaddy — dubbed the future of Point Guard U like Jennings was — didn’t have the backbone to follow through with a commitment. So Wise became The Man with all eyes on him in front of court-side fans Bill Murray and John McCain. “I just wanted to win the game, it didn’t matter how,”Wise said in typical Wise fashion. Fans now want his No. 13 to be retired, or at least honored with those great point guards before him — maybe in the ring of circle with Gilbert Arenas, maybe a framed jersey with Steve Kerr. Just overnight, almost 300 users joined the Facebook group“100,000 Wildcats for retiring Nic Wise’s jersey”— proving the case that Wise did more than just carry the tradition of Point Guard U. He bridged one of the largest gaps any player could bridge in a four-year span. “The fight in us. The never-quit attitude. We just know we can grind out games when it’s not pretty,” Wise said.“Everything happens for a reason.” Wisely put.

The Gymcats had a few goals this week, including increasing their overall team score, improving beam and making strides in national rankings. Mission accomplished. The entire meet against the University of Washington was extremely close, and neither team knew who won upon finishing. The team waited anxiously as the judges calculated all the scores. At the end of the night, the Gymcats took down the GymDawgs 195.750-195.675 in front of the home crowd. The Gymcats’ overall score was the highest team total of the season. The No. 21 Arizona team hopes to rise in the national rankings after their performance, but have to wait for the new rankings to come out. “I think we did really well. We all set a team allaround goal and we beat it by .75,” said Deanna Graham. The Gymcats had their work cut out for them since Washington had a slight lead after the first three events. The Gymcats struck disaster however, as senior captain Sarah Tomczyk took a tumble during her beam routine. “That was one of our shakiest beam performances yet,” said head coach Bill Ryden. “I’m not quite sure what we are going to do with that, but we have to do something.” Heading into the last event of the night, the Gymcats were down by 0.375 and knew they needed great floor routines to pull out a win.
The Gymcats started off with three solid routines from Talyn Curry, Molly Quirk and Katie Matusik. They scored 9.750, 9.850 and 9.850 on floor, respectively. The floor routine had special meaning to Matusik, who returned from an injury. “It was the first time I did (floor) ever in college,” Matusik said. “So I was pretty excited and emotional.” Aubree Cristello started off the high scores for the Gymcats. Cristello was rewarded a 9.875 for her routine, creating a small chance for a comeback. Next up was Tucson native Graham, who followed up Cristello with an outstanding routine. The team and crowd was pumped up during Graham’s routine, and Ryden was seen pumping his fists as Graham stuck each landing. “It was awesome, I was just excited to get out there and do what we do in the gym,” Graham said. “Yeah I knew it was a good one when I hit, I was just excited for the team and our score.” Everyone in the arena let out a gasp as the judges revealed that Graham received a 9.925 for her routine. Last up for the Gymcats was Tomczyk, who made up for her fumble during her beam routine, by scoring a 9.900 on her floor routine. “Deanna (Graham) is a great floor worker. The only little bobble she had was landing her first tumbling pass,” Ryden said. “It was set up for Sarah (Tomczyk) who actually has a harder floor routine then Deanna, and then Sarah hit a home run. They were relaxed they were having a good time, and that’s when the scores usually come.”
