Professors work on socks for diabetics

VOLUME 106 • ISSUE 137



MONICA CONTRERAS Arizona Daily Wildcat

Two UA researchers are teaming up to study the use of SmartSox, a cutting edge technology for the detection and prevention of diabetic foot ulcers that can lead to amputation. More than $2 million in research grants was awarded to the UA Department of Surgery’s Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance, and the Interdisciplinary Consortium on Advanced Motion Performance, as well as the Qatar-based Hamad Medical Corporation. The groups will collaborate in studying the effectiveness of socks that can help detect the development of ulcers. Dr. David G. Armstrong, a UA professor of surgery and director of SALSA , and Bijan Najafi, a UA associate professor of surgery and director of iCAMP, are the principal investigators of the study, which is funded by the Qatar National Research Fund. Twenty-six to 30 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, and the treatment of foot ulcers is one of the most common reason diabetics go to the hospital, according to Armstrong. One of the symptoms of diabetes is the loss of nerve function, especially in the lower extremities. With what Armstrong calls the “gift of pain” absent, patients may not feel the formation of ulcers, which is another effect of diabetes. Diabetic foot ulcers can become severely infected which can lead to amputation. “This is a worldwide epidemic,” Najafi said. “Every 20 seconds, a limb is lost to diabetes.” SmartSox have fiber-optic strands embedded in the fabric that can detect changes in temperature, pressure, and joint-angle, all of which signal the development of ulcers. Patients will put the socks on, walk around the exam room, and the data would be instantly available. Doctors could detect changes in walking patterns, signifying a possible problem. “This is a game-changer in measuring how people move through their world,” Armstrong


UA staff focus on Native students

A UA graduate and a faculty member are focusing on strengthening the representation of Native American students pursuing higher education through their contribution to a recently published book. Karen Francis-Begay, assistant vice president of tribal relations in the UA Office of the President, and Amanda Tachine, a doctoral student in higher education, helped coauthor the first chapter in the book, “Beyond the Asterisk: Understanding Native Students in Higher Education,” which delves into the issue of a lack of research on Native American and Alaska Native university students and details the challenges they face. The book’s title has a significant meaning, because it alludes to the issue of the asterisk commonly found in current research studies. Asterisks refers to sample numbers of Native American populations who are often too small to provide any significant research statistics. The first chapter, “The First Year Experience for Native Americans: The University of Arizona First-Year Scholars Program,” addresses the steps Native American students should take to be successful, while detailing their experiences in the First-Year Scholars Program at the UA. Started in 2004, the program aims to help Native American students adjust to college life and improve retention rates. Tachine said she realized detailing the first year of student’s lives was critical to highlighting these challenges. As a former participant in the First-Year Scholars program, she said she saw the benefits that come with having similar programs available to Native American students. “This project has inspired me as a student and equipped me with more knowledge to pursue this matter

However, she said did not understand how much work needs to be done and how crucial it is for the UA to seize every opportunity to improve. “The intensity of the challenges in the health sciences in general that we face as a community, to succeed, and not just succeed but with distinction, are pretty strong,” Hart said. As the town hall began to wind down, some audience members expressed concerns about the rising cost of education. “We see it all the time,” said Marty Baker, coordinator for recruitment and admissions for the College of Pharmacy. “Especially when we’re talking to those coming from high school, you know, at recruiting events … how in the world are they going to be able to afford an education, undergraduate, and then get their kids to a professional school?” Baker then asked Hart for ideas on how to convince in-state and out-of-state students that school is still a possibility. “I am committed to making sure that we do become better at providing high quality service for lower cost, without lowering our standards,” Hart said. “I also would appeal to you, when you talk to students, to help them and their parents be very sophisticated about ways to reduce cost.” Overall, Hart said she thought the discussion was very insightful. “I certainly learned a lot from the faculty and staff who came,” Hart said. “I was thrilled that they were willing to ask serious questions, and to share their experiences, and I hope that we have a chance to build an increasingly strong commitment to march forward together.”

About $9 million will fund performance-based raises for some UA faculty and staff, said UA President Ann Weaver Hart on Friday during her town hall meeting. The town hall, held in Roy P. Drachman Hall, provided faculty, students and staff with the opportunity to address questions directly to Hart. Attendees were encouraged to ask questions on any topic of interest, including the future of the UA and issues the university faces. The first question from the audience dealt with the role of market disparity and equity with the new performance-based salary pool. Hart announced that a university-wide salary adjustment pool of $9.1 million had been established to fund performance-based salary increases for benefitseligible faculty and staff funded on state and locally allocated budgets, in an email sent to UA employees Wednesday. “My intention with this pool — and recognizing that it’s not a very big pool … is to focus on performance, but to make all employees who are performing at a satisfactory level eligible for an increase,” Hart said. “In other words, this is not designed to specifically go out to a small number of employees, faculty and staff at the university, but it’s designed to be the first overall, general performance-based … salary increase since 2007.” Following the discussion on increased salaries, Hart answered several questions regarding the health sciences, such as the efforts the university is making to recruit students from Arizona to health professions programs and its residency

and fellowship programs in medicine. “To recruit students into our health professions programs at the undergraduate level, we are working very, very hard to identify and connect with high school students who are prepared to succeed,” Hart said. There is nothing more devastating for a student than to borrow money, devote a year to school and a demanding major and then “wash out” and be left with debt, Hart added. However, at the residency and fellowship level, the UA has to deal with a much more complex situation. The state of Arizona has a scarcity of Graduate Medical Education slots, according to Hart. Hart said that she is working with political leaders in the state to create a specific GME strategy to make sure that the UA residency and fellowships are world-class. She also said she is working to make sure those programs have the right quality and reputation to retain graduates and interest them in positions in-state, as well as attract graduates from the health sciences to Arizona. John Murphy, associate dean and professor of the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science, asked Hart to think about the College of Pharmacy when talking about GME and residency programs, and how it might advance those types of programs in the state. Hart added that when she came to the UA, she understood the UA Cancer Center and health sciences programs had a long way to go to reach the level of distinction the UA aspires to, especially considering that the policy environment for health care in the United States is currently in flux.

Four students from the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship will submit their idea of creating personalized ebooks for autistic children into a competition this month. The student company, known as MyEmagination, will represent the center in the California Dreamin’ competition at Chapman University. The competition will offer an opportunity to gain $215,000 in prize money and equity investment and up to $1,000,000 in equity financing. “The reason that we chose their team to represent the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship is because we thought that their venture concept is truly integrative,” said Julie Forster, the McGuire program coordinator. “There’s nothing like this in the market right now so we were both impressed with the team and how innovative their concept was.” It is important for children with autism to have repetition in their lives and that they see the same people and things, Forster said. Emmanuel Dominguez, a senior studying MIS and entrepreneurship, is the company’s marketing manager and James Eichberger, a finance, economics, and entrepreneurship senior, is the company’s financial manager. Rosie Rice, an MIS, operations management and entrepreneurship senior, oversees the company’s operations and Alexa Stimson, a management and entrepreneurship senior, is the company’s general manager. “It’s [the competition] a huge opportunity for us to show the country what entrepreneurship is all about, especially here at McGuire,” Eichberger said.

The process of creating a personalized ebook works by allowing parents to visit the site, which is currently only a beta module, and fill in their child’s favorite things like food or their best friend. After that, parents choose a story which the program would then combine with the favorites and create the ebook. The child would be the star of the story, Eichberger added. He also said that eventually the ebook would include interaction. For example, if there was a picture of a lion, the reader could click on it and the lion would roar. Parents would be able to get a six-page preview for free and the students plan on selling an ebook for $6.99 and a hardback for $39.99, Stimson said. “The book is going to be different,” Dominguez said. “The illustration is not the whole book, it’s just in the middle because they [autistic children] have trouble seeing the whole page.” Investors and businesses have already taken an interest in MyEmagination. Tucson Alliance for Autism has been in contact with the group and connected them with someone who publishes books for autistic children. However, the team has to wait until they graduate before they can formulate any plans with investors. At the end of the semester, if investors are interested in an idea from a venture team, such as MyEmagination, entrepreneurial students can pitch their idea to investors, Eichberger said. “It depends on how it goes in the competition,” Dominguez said. “But there is a high chance [we will continue post graduation] because it’s a really nice idea.”

through my dissertation,” Tachine said. “I feel it is part of my responsibility to reciprocate that information and share it with others who may want to understand this issue.” Byron Sloan, a junior studying retailing and consumer science, said he shares a similar story to those conveyed in the publication. Although his father attended college, Sloan said he found it difficult to find common ground and utilize his help. “Coming in to freshman year, it was for me to go about on my own,” Sloan said. “My dad went to school in a different time and there’s not a lot of [Native American] role models who have gone through the collegiate process.” Now a programming board member for the UA’s Native American Student Affairs (NASA), Sloan said he makes it his goal to reach out to other students who may be experiencing similar obstacles. Though cultural centers provide various resources to their students, Sloan said the university can take more action to further their benefits. “In doing more research, I feel that

The majority of research information is based on the K-12 level, leaving out data on Native American students attending colleges, she added. “When you try to go out there and find the literature or even data, it’s not there or there’s very little of it,” Begay said. “It’s almost as if we’re completely invisible … therefore our issues don’t get addressed.” This is a concern to researchers like Begay, because she said that without reliable data, there is no way of addressing how much change or progress in retention is actually being made. Although Begay’s current work is not directly in the classroom, she is continuing her work by expanding into the tribal community. Through her continued involvement at the university, Begay said her current work gives her a unique stance on her research. “There’s not a lot of institutions in the

The value … and symbolic meaning it has in having someone designated to work specifically with tribes at the level of the president of the university says a lot. It demonstrates the institution’s commitment to serving the needs of the Native American community.” Looking into the future, Tachine said this research has set a foundation for the work of other scholars to come. “We’re more than a box to check off, so we need to look at the holistic ways our Native students live,” Tachine said. “These are real students trying to thrive.”

said. The technology, once refined, could be used at home as well. Armstrong said he envisions a future in which patients wearing the socks would be alerted if, for instance, one of their toes was hotter than the others, another sign of a developing ulcer. The hospital would also be notified and an appointment could be scheduled. “It’s like OnStar for your body,” Armstrong said. The researchers are in the process of recruiting 120 high-risk patients for their year-long study, though it has the potential to be extended.

Although the researchers are enthusiastic about the technological aspect of their project, their ultimate goal is saving limbs. “The ability to be mobile and move easily is key to having the highest quality of life,” Najafi said. “We’re helping people.

Time for bros to stand up for girls KRISTINA BUI Arizona Daily Wildcat


he reproductive rights debate has always focused on women and it relies primarily on women’s voices to further any discussion. But a new campaign is asking another group to speak up: the bros. Bro-Choice, an initiative by the national organization Choice USA, challenges what most people think the typical reproductive rights activist looks like. Spoiler alert: It doesn’t have to be a woman. A reproductive rights activist can be anyone, Bro-Choice argues, and in recruiting young men to join the reproductive rights movement, Bro-Choice hopes to “ultimately disrupt the dominant narrative that reproductive justice is a ‘women’s issue.’” In plain language — bro-speak, if you will — that means changing the idea that only people with lady parts have to care about what happens to themselves and their bodies. The term “bro choice” was first made famous by comedian Sarah Silverman in a public service announcement released just after the 2012 election cycle. In it, Silverman lays out a few guidelines for the policymaking bros (“Rule No. 3: If you don’t understand how our lady parts work, you don’t get to make any laws about them”) and pushes bros to stand up for the ladies. Silverman nails the whole point in a single quote: “I’m not saying I’m looking for a hero. I’m not saying I’m looking to be saved. But does the fight have to be yours for you to take it on?” Choice USA’s Bro-Choice and other similar initiatives are about acknowledging the rights of women and creating an additional, not superior, perspective in debate. The thing about “women’s issues” — reproductive rights, sexism, rape culture, etc. — is that conversations about these issues frequently fail to draw in the people who most need to participate. Luckily, attitudes are beginning to change everywhere. Bro-Choice urges men in college to challenge messages in the media and change campus culture. Similarly, the Men’s Project, a student-initiated program out of the Women’s Resource Center at the UA, strives to “provide a safe space to engage all UofA students, but especially Wildcat Men, in a dialogue about college male culture,” according to its Facebook page. Other male pro-choice endeavors are taking place across the nation on other campuses, including at Loyola University Chicago, Amherst College and the University of Connecticut. These efforts recognize the indisputable link between what we normally think of as “women’s issues” and traditional definitions of masculinity. The bro-choice pledge created by Choice USA asks men to promise to challenge negative stereotypes of men and masculinity, and to “challenge myself and interrogate my own personal privileges.” Being bro choice, or being a man who has choices and the freedom to make them, isn’t about the specific choices that only men get to make. Instead, it’s about realizing that men’s choices affect women. As the pledge says, “living BroChoice means being a part of the solution.” There’s no such thing as a “women’s issue,” and pretending otherwise excludes an essential point of view. For dialogue to be most effective, everyone has to take part. Everyone has to consider themselves a stakeholder. — Kristina Bui is the editor-in-chief of the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

Spring Fling could do better DAN DESROCHERS Arizona Daily Wildcat


pring is the perfect time of year for a carnival. The weather is nice and the semester is coming to a close. Everyone is ready to take a break and go outside. The UA’s Spring Fling has been a tradition since 1974, and, according to its website, is the largest student-run carnival in the country. Each year, Spring Fling attracts more than 25,000 people. This year 32 clubs were involved, between running commercial game booths, original food booths, commercial food booths and pizza booths. These numbers are impressive, and Spring Fling is a fun, annual event that provides a way for students to give back to the Tucson community and earn profits for their clubs. But it turns out the UA Spring Fling is not actually the largest student-run carnival in the country. If you search “largest student-run carnival” on Google, the first link is to a blog post about an event called ThurtenE. ThurtenE (pronounced “thirteen”) is a student-run carnival that has been in operation since 1904. It is run by the Thurtene Honorary, a group of 13 juniors at Washington University in St. Louis. According to its Facebook page, ThurtenE

“traditionally attracts well over 80,000 people,” and “brings together over 50 student organizations at Washington University.” Uh-oh. You would think, that since the Associated Students of the University of Arizona loves to advertise that Spring Fling is the largest student-run carnival, that it would at least fact-check first. Whether or not Spring Fling is the biggest carnival of its kind, the claim is indicative of the bigger picture: Spring Fling could do better. If Spring Fling directors aren’t always looking for ways to improve the carnival, they aren’t doing their jobs correctly. Spring Fling is incredibly valuable to the UA and Tucson community. But over the past few years the event has seen a fluctuation in attendence. Although numbers haven’t been consistently reported every year by the Daily Wildcat, there has been a general downward trend since 2000, when attendence was 41,000. In 2010, just 23,000 people attended. One thing does seem to be consistent — Directors believe Spring Fling would attract more people, and make more money, if it were on campus. According to former Spring Fling executive director Brittany Steinke, in a 2011 article in

Your views

the Daily Wildcat, since Spring Fling moved to Rillito Downs Park in 2000, there has been a decline in attendance and corporate sponsorship. Spring Fling initially moved because the Manuel T. Pacheco Integrated Learning Center was being built. Now that the ILC has been done with construction for 12 years, there’s no reason why Spring Fling shouldn’t move back to campus. Concerns about moving Spring Fling back to campus include noise, cleanliness, space and security, according to ASUA president Katy Murray. The Sam Hughes Neighborhood Association recently sent a letter to the Arizona Board of Regents, saying neighborhood residents do not want Spring Fling moved back to campus because of the noise it creates. But if the UA and Sam Hughes found a way to make the carnival work for 25 years, there is no reason why they can’t do it again. The increased student attendance and campus connection would be extremely beneficial. Maybe the knowledge that Spring Fling isn’t really the largest student-run carnival will be the push that ASUA needs to being it back to campus. Some friendly competition between Spring Fling and ThurtenE might help both carnivals continue to thrive. — Dan Desrochers is the opinions editor of the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

Dear Editor, Students here at the UA are already dealing with extremely high tuition rates. Students struggle everyday with trying to maintain school grades, be involved in clubs on campus, and now have to worry about a 3 percent increase in tuition for the upcoming school In response to “Cat Tracks” (April 10): year. Maybe the reason so many people work in unpaid internships is The Arizona Board of Regents is the committee of higher education because of the industry they work in. Unpaid internships are more in the state of Arizona and this year has decided to raise tuition rates abundant in fields where budgets are slim and jobs are scarce, by 3 percent. while paid internships are common in areas like engineering, where What do they need this huge increase in funds for anyway? Can’t there is plenty of work and money. So the reason not many people the board work with the budget already in place, instead of raising with unpaid internships get hired may have more to do with their tuition more? Is it necessary and immanent that these rates be career than their choice of internship. Was that study adjusted for increased yet again? The Regents seems to believe so. differences in majors and careers? At the UA, over the past three years, tuition has increased over 63 — Cody P percent. Based off an average household’s income, 31 percent of the income would have to go toward higher education. These numbers are even after financial aid is granted to a student.

Court considering state gun law case mcclatchy tribune

WASHINGTON — While Congress debates proposals for tighter gun regulation, the Supreme Court is considering a case that challenges state laws that strictly limit who can carry guns in public. When the justices ruled in 2008 and 2010 that the Second Amendment gave people a right to keep firearms in their homes, it did not address whether they had a right to carry weapons outside the home. Gun rights advocates have asked the court to strike down New York’s law allowing officials to deny “concealed carry” permits to gun owners unless they can show a “special need for self-protection.” They want the justices to rule that the Second Amendment gives law-abiding gun owners a right to be armed on the streets. An announcement from the court on whether it will hear the case could come today. Justice Antonin Scalia, in his 5-4 majority opinion in the 2008 Heller case striking down a ban on handguns in the District of Columbia, described the Second Amendment as creating a “right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation.” Citing Scalia’s words, gun rights advocates have mounted challenges to laws in seven states that routinely deny permits to gun owners who wish to carry loaded or unloaded guns with them. Typically, these laws say the gun owner must show a “proper cause” or “good cause” to obtain a permit. California, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York have such laws.

“This case could be more important than Heller,” said University of California, Los Angeles, law professor Adam Winkler. “The biggest unanswered question about the Second Amendment is whether people have a right to carry guns in public.” In December, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago struck down the Illinois law, the nation’s strictest. It was understood to bar all but police and security guards from carrying guns in public. Judge Richard Posner said the Supreme Court had described the Second Amendment as conferring “a right to bear arms for self-defense,” and if so, being armed is “as important outside the home as inside.” The decision gave state lawmakers six months to craft a new law that would allow the carrying guns in public in a way that is “consistent with public safety.” In November, however, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York upheld that state’s law, which is often described as the nation’s second-strictest. It authorizes gun owners to obtain permits to carry weapons in public, but only if they can persuade county official they have “a special need” to be armed. Evidence of “good moral character” is not enough, nor is living or working in a “high-crime area,” the judges said. The appeals court rejected a constitutional claim brought by Alan Kachalsky and several other residents of Westchester County who were turned down for permits. The Second Amendment does not “call into question the state’s traditional authority to extensively regulate handgun possession in public,” the appeals court said.

All of the casualties

Attorney Alan Gura, who won the Second Amendment rulings in the case from District of Columbia and the 2010 case from Chicago, appealed the New York case to the Supreme Court. He says the New York decision made the right to bear arms “practically worthless. If it is a constitutional right, you don’t have to prove to the government that you are entitled to exercise your rights.” If the justices vote to take up the appeal, the Kachalsky case will be heard in the fall. But Winkler, the UCLA law professor, and others think the court may choose to put off a decision on the reach of gun rights. “Some of the justices may be hesitant to take a Second Amendment case while nerves are still raw from Newtown,” Winkler said. The school shooting in Newtown, Conn., has forced Congress to take another look at the nation’s gun laws, and last week the Senate voted to begin debate on expanding the background checks required for purchasing a handgun. If the justices deny the appeal in the New York case, it would not set a legal precedent, but it would be seen by some as allowing state and local officials leeway in deciding who can carry a gun in public. But the continuing litigation will almost surely force the court to decide the issue in the next few years. In December, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals heard challenges to the concealedcarry laws from two California counties and from Hawaii. Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has until May to decide whether to ask the Supreme Court to review the 7th Circuit decision striking down the state’s ban on carrying guns in public.

Police Beat MAXWELL J. MANGOLD Arizona Daily Wildcat

Everybody’s doing it

A UA student was booked into Pima County Jail on charges related to domestic violence after a dispute with her ex-boyfriend outside of Coronado Residence Hall early on the morning of April 5. A man flagged down police outside of Coronado at 1:15 a.m. because a woman was yelling and cursing at another man. The woman was pulling on the man’s arm so he couldn’t walk away. When the woman saw the police officers, she released the man’s arm and he walked toward a cab. The woman followed him but wouldn’t allow him to close the door of the vehicle. Officers then asked to speak with the couple. The woman, who showed signs of intoxication, said they had been dating for two and a half years, but that the man was trying to break up with her. The two had been at an off-campus party before they returned to campus in a taxi together. She was then cited for a minor in possession, escorted to her dorm by police and told not to return to Coronado. Police then received a call from the man’s resident assistant at 3 a.m., because the woman was in his room and was refusing to leave. She had followed someone else into the building, then caused enough noise to wake up the man’s hallmates, the RA said. The RA spoke with the woman for about 20 minutes, but she refused to leave. When police officers arrived, they recognized the couple and arrested the woman. Later, while being processed, four and a half Adderall pills were found in the woman’s purse. The woman then became upset with police over the questions about the drugs, which she said were prescribed for her sister. “It’s just freaking Adderall, everyone freaking takes it,” she said. The woman also kept repeating, “This is bullshit. My boyfriend’s got drug charges and I’m the one at jail.”

Stealing double

Two laptops were reported stolen from rooms in Coronado Residence Hall at 2:45 p.m. on April 8. UAPD officers spoke with a UA student who said he attended class earlier. When he returned, the door to his room, which he said was always closed, was open. The suitemate of the student then reported his laptop missing as well. Police officers then spoke with the suitemate’s roommate who said he had been in class too, but nothing appeared to be missing or out of order. There are currently no suspects or witnesses, and the two students both said they plan to pursue criminal charges.

the replacements Depth, new playmakers a must with top receiving target injured

Kyle Johnson Arizona Daily Wildcat


pring games are usually designed to send a football team into the offseason on a positive note, but Arizona’s annual scrimmage was marred by the news of an injury to star receiver Austin Hill. Hill, who led the Wildcats in all major receiving categories, tore his ACL at practice Wednesday and his timetable is still unknown, according to head coach Rich Rodriguez. For an offense already undergoing change, with All-Pac-12 quarterback Matt Scott headed to the NFL, the loss of Hill is a major blow to the UA offense. “Unfortunately, it’s an ACL tear, which just makes me sick,” Rodriguez said. “He is such a great player … it wasn’t an ACL, MCL and all that. It was just an ACL, but with that said, he will have surgery as soon as possible and get going on rehab.” “I really felt bad for him, but our guys will bounce back. Austin is a tough, strong guy and he will bounce back.” Replacing a Biletnikoff Award semifinalist and a player who tied a school record with 11 touchdowns last season won’t be an easy task. Fortunately for Arizona, the wide receiver position is by far the deepest on the team, giving the Wildcats several ways to try and replicate Hill’s production.

Replacement by committee

Rodriguez said a host of guys will have to pick up the slack with Hill injured. Fortunately for Arizona, it has the ability to do so. If transfer Devonte’ Neal is allowed to play immediately for Arizona, he’ll give the Wildcats an additional boost to the already deep receiving corps. Still, junior Tyler Slavin said everybody will need to “step it up” to replace Hill. With how Slavin’s been playing recently, he could be

that player. In the final two minutes of Arizona’s dramatic comeback against Nevada in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl, Slavin caught four passes for 37 yards, including the game-winning touchdown. Before that point, the season was more than forgettable for the junior, who was known more for his drops rather than production on the field. But Slavin’s first career touchdown came at the most crucial time and he followed it up with a 97-yard touchdown in the spring game Saturday. “[Hill’s injury] is a sad thing, but at the same time we also can’t dwell on that,” Slavin said. “We have to come through.” Slavin showed there is still hope after Hill, with his long touchdown reception, but he wasn’t the only one who showed potential.

Redshirt freshman Clive Georges had 72 yards and a score on a gamehigh five catches and sophomore Johnny Jackson, who’s been one of quarterback B.J. Denker’s favorite targets this spring, had 34 yards and a score.

Recovery through experience

Even with Hill injured, Dan Buckner graduating and Richard Morrison switching to cornerback, Arizona still has six returning players who each had at least one game of 50 yards receiving. One of those returning is senior Terrence Miller, who was finally granted a fifth-year of eligibility with a medical redshirt, which will give the Wildcats a much-needed boost of veteran leadership. Miller missed nine games in 2012.

“It’s really good to be cleared … now I get my focus back and focus on school and football,” Miller said. Milller doesn’t have a good past with injuries. He suffered from a lacerated kidney during the previous spring camp and then severely sprained his ankle last season. “Terrence is such a smart guy,” Rodriguez said. “He’ll play outside, he’ll play inside, he’ll play tight end. I think he’s excited about it because it puts him in different positions on the field.” Miller finished last season with 143 yards on 13 catches. Most of his production came in Arizona’s 24-17 overtime win against Toledo where the senior caught the gamewinning score. Miller will be a hybrid receiver for the Wildcats in 2013, and with the loss of Hill, his versatility becomes that much more valuable.

“[My position] doesn’t really matter to me, as long as I’m on the field and can make plays,” Miller said. “Wherever coach Rod tells me to go, it’s my favorite place at the time.”

Just keep running

The easiest way to make up for Hill’s sudden absence is for Arizona to do what it did best last season — hand the ball to Ka’Deem Carey. “Somebody’s got to step up and make the plays,” Denker said. “Ka’Deem is going to have more to do. He’s going to have to carry the team a little bit. But we can’t look at it as something negative.” With the question marks still at the quarterback position, and Carey having 303 attempts last season, the Heisman Trophy candidate might hear his number called more often with the offense now in flux.

Arizona Daily Wildcat

Sophomore Tyler Crawford pitched Arizona’s first complete game of the season as the Wildcats won their third consecutive series with a 7-3 win over Washington State Sunday afternoon in the series rubber match. If not for some early inning struggles, Crawford (4-1) would have pitched a complete game shutout. The lefty gave up nine hits and three earned runs in the game, with six hits coming in the first and all three runs coming in the second inning. “[Crawford] has been huge for us,” second baseman Trent Gilbert said. “He pounds the zone for strikes and can go long innings.” Crawford received help from the Arizona (23-12, 8-7 Pac-12) offense with some balance scoring up and down the lineup. The Wildcats collected 10 total hits Sunday and three Arizona batters, Gilbert, Kevin Newman, and Riley Moore, had multiple hits. The Wildcats, who started the Pac12 conference play on a six-game losing streak, are over .500 for the first time ever as they’ve won eight of their last nine games. Execution and moving runners over has been the key to Arizona’s quick turn around. “We’ve really changed our approach,” Gilbert said about the offense since starting 0-6 in conference play. “We’re more focused on execution hit and runs and moving runners over, small ball.” Rain and snow flurries hit eastern Washington and made things a little difficult for the Wildcats. Following the second inning, Crawford settled down, as he only needed 86 pitches to capture his first career complete game. Crawford got an early lead from his offense when Arizona jumped out of the gate in the top of the first. Two singles, two walks and sacrifice fly by third baseman Brandon Dixon would give Crawford a 3-0 lead before he even threw a pitch. The lead, though, disappeared after the second, but from the third through the seventh inning, Crawford faced the minimum number of batters and kept Arizona in the game. Still tied at three, the Wildcats broke the tie in the sixth inning. Highlighted by a RBI double from Joseph Maggi, Arizona scored four runs on three hits and a sacrifice fly

from center fielder Johnny Field in the half inning. The four runs were three more than Crawford needed, as he continued to blow by Cougar hitters. He only faced one over the minimum and didn’t allow one Washington State runner to reach third base after recapturing the lead. “It’s really important to have a guy like Crawford who can come in on Sunday and win a deciding game like today,” Gilbert said. “It’s been great how he’s stepped up. Now with the dominating Friday and Saturday guys we can add a Sunday guy that makes us even more tough.”

Even though a sweep over the Cougars was what Gilbert and the Wildcats were hoping for, Gilbert said he was still satisfied and happy with taking two out of three on the road, especially in the stormy conditions. “It was a good road series win for us, especially with the conditions we had to face,” Gilbert said. “I think we’re still not there yet, but we’re starting to hit our stride.” Arizona will be back in action Tuesday, as it hosts rival Arizona State at Hi Corbett Field. This could be a pivotal game, as both teams are tied in conference standings.

Prior to Saturday’s spring football game at Sancet Stadium, Wildcat fans didn’t know too much about Arizona transfer quarterback Jesse Scroggins, other than he was recruited by USC and backed up then-Trojans starter Matt Barkley for two seasons. Saturday was Scroggins’ first opportunity to get some game action and playing time in front of fans and the media, as he’s been limited with a foot injury since joining the team in January. “He’ll be OK. Again, this was his first true practice,” head coach Rich Rodriguez said. “He’s gotten a little healthier and done a little throwing and seven-on-sevens, but we wanted to throw him in there and he felt good.” At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, Scroggins is a substantially-sized quarterback. Leaving the pocket and running with the ball isn’t his first option, but he’s light enough on his feet that he has the option to if needed. Leaving a West Coast offense at USC and coming to Rodriguez’s spread option can be a difficult transition, but Scoggins has made the best of it and said he feels right at home. “I feel comfortable [at Arizona],” Scroggins said. “I feel this is the place I’m supposed to be at.” Even though he entered the program injured, it didn’t limit him from gaining valuable knowledge going forward. “[This spring] was a lot of mental reps. I’m here now and I feel better than I ever have been.” The only noticeable adjustment Scroggins said he has had to deal with was leaving the big city glitz and glamour of Los Angeles to come to a college town where football doesn’t play little brother to any professional sport. Even though he was a high school AllAmerican, Scroggins left USC because he struggled to separate himself from fellow backup Trojan quarterbacks Cody Kesser and Max Wittek, who are currently competing to replace Barkley.

UA softball swept by Oregon JAMES KELLEY Arizona Daily Wildcat

After a promising start to the series at No. 7 Oregon, Arizona softball suffered arguably one of the worst weekends in the program’s history. After the No. 22 Wildcats (27-17, 4-8 Pac-12) nearly beat conference-leading Oregon (36-6, 13-2) on Friday, they were no-hit Saturday and the victims of a perfect game Sunday. In the final two games of the series, the Ducks scored 17 runs and the UA had just three base runners as Oregon run-ruled the UA twice. On Sunday, Oregon senior ace Jessica Moore (19-3) threw a perfect game as the Ducks beat Arizona 9-0 in five innings. “That’s the best I’ve seen Jess pitch,” Oregon head coach Mike White said in a press release. “She was in control of every one of her pitches against a very good hitting team, and she deserved it. At the plate, we’re seeing the ball well and our short game set our hitters up well, too.” Moore struck out six two days after Arizona scored three against her and had nine hits. “I knew I had a chance going into the last inning so I tried to bear down and do my best,” Moore said in a press release. “Coach White and I rewatched my game Friday night afterward and that really helped prepare us today, as well as watching Cheridan [Hawkins] yesteday and seeing what pitches [Arizona] struggled on.” Junior Estela Piñon (9-6) started and allowed four runs, three earned in two innings. Junior Shelby Babcock (14-6) relieved her and allowed

five runs on four hits in 1.1 innings. Freshman Nancy Bowling (4-5) relieved Babcock and got the final two outs. The Wildcats have lost three times this year by the mercy rule, losing 9-1 to then No. 15 Michigan March 15 in the Judi Garman Classic.

Today’s sweep was the first time Arizona was swept since last March at ASU. On Saturday, Oregon freshman pitcher Cheridan Hawkins (14-3) threw a no-hitter, as the Ducks beat Arizona 8-0 in five innings. Hawkins struck out 11, including seven of the

first eight Wildcats she faced. Bowling allowed four runs on five hits, walked three and struck out three. Babcock replaced her and allowed four runs, three earned, gave up four hits, a walk and struck out one in an inning. Arizona went 1-4 on its most recent road trip, losing to New Mexico State 3-2 before beating the Aggies 8-1 on Tuesday. The Wildcats have played 16 games in 23 days. On Friday, Oregon came from behind to win 5-3 thanks to a pair of two home runs in the bottom of the sixth frame. Babcock pitched well through five, holding the Ducks to three hits and leading 3-1. After she gave up the first home run, Bowling relieved her and gave up another round tripper. The Rodriguez sisters had all of the UA’s RBI this weekend. Freshman utility Courtney Rodriguez ended a nine-pitch at bat with a single to drive in one and junior catcher/ designated player Kelsey Rodriguez hit an RBI double. Sophomore first baseman and left fielder Mandie Perez also had doubles, as Arizona outhit the Ducks 9-7. Sophomore second baseman Chelsea Suitos scored on a throwing error. The Wildcats knocked Moore, a three-time Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week out of the game, but Hawkins earned her fifth save by shutting down the UA despite Arizona getting two runners in scoring position to start the seventh with no outs. Despite returning home this weekend, it won’t get much easier for the Wildcats, as they will face No. 21 UCLA over the weekend.

Whyte expected to be drafted JAMES KELLEY Arizona Daily Wildcat

Former Arizona women’s basketball star Davellyn Whyte is expected to hear her name called today in the WNBA Draft. The draft will start at 5 p.m. on ESPN and then ESPNU will air the second and third rounds starting at 6 p.m. The selection show will also be available on and on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app. The draft will be the first in WNBA history to be televised in primetime, on the East Coast at least. Whyte scored 2,059 points in her career, behind only Adia Barnes’ 2,237 on the UA scoring list. Whyte and Barnes are the

only members of the 2,000 point club in Arizona history. “I think that she’ll be a great pro player,” said Barnes, a WNBA radio and TV analyst. “I think that she’s really tough to guard, one on one. I think that she has a bright future.” has Whyte going to the Seattle Storm with the 18th pick. CollegeSportsMadness. com has the Indiana Fever picking her with the 21st choice. has Whyte going to Los Angeles Sparks in the second round with the 22nd pick. Whyte scored in double figures in 100 of the 126 games she played in, scored 20 or more 35 times and 30 or more five. Against Arizona State on Feb. 19, the Phoenix native scored 31, grabbed 16 rebounds

and had 10 assists, the first tripledouble in UA history. Whyte had 266 steals, second alltime in UA history, was fourth alltime in free throws made, eighth in assists and ninth in rebounding average, with 5.5 per game. Whyte started every game in her college career and her 4,243 minutes is the most in Wildcat history. UA head coach Niya Butts said she thinks Whyte will be even better in the pros because she won’t have to carry so much of the load. “I think she’ll be even better at the next level,” Butts said. “She sees things before her teammates and when you have a bunch of young athletes ready to do that you get to show what you’re best at.”

Scroggins took a detour before coming to the desert, playing one season at El Camino Junior College in Torrance, Calif. Following a successful season with the Warriors, in which he threw for 1,148 yards in eight games, Scroggins made the decision to move to Tucson despite the quarterback battle with senior B.J. Denker and incoming high school AllAmerican Anu Solomon. “As a competitor, as tall as I am, as much as I weigh, [with] all my might, I’m going to compete,” Scroggins said about the upcoming quarterback battle. For the most part, Scroggins, and the rest of the team, are on their own until August when the Wildcats begin practice. It will be up to Scroggins to get healthier and master Rodriguez’s offense if he wants to start August 30 in the season opener against NAU.

Adam Scott wins Masters w

AUGUSTA, Ga. — In one moment, Adam Scott’s fists clenched and his neck tendons went taut and out came forever’s worth of frustrations. One ball rolled a long way into a cup across a soggy patch of grass, and he shouted down Australia’s enduring failures at the Masters: Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, joy, joy, joy. Through the downpour, Scott carried his country’s flag into the scoring area to sign off on it all. But down the fairway lurked an Argentine who is at ease here. Angel Cabrera roused everyone once more, rolling in a birdie putt, putting his son in a headlock on his way off the course while the day grabbed hold of everyone: Scott and Cabrera, tied at 9 under, and the Masters in a sudden-death playoff. Scott drained a 12-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole Sunday to become the first Australian to win the Masters, unleashing his second primal scream in the gloaming. “We’re a proud sporting country and like to think we’re the best at everything, like any proud sporting country,” Scott said. “Golf is a big sport at home, and this was one thing in golf we hadn’t been able to achieve. It’s amazing it’s my destiny to be the first Aussie to win.” Fellow Australians dominated the weekend: Jason Day finished third at 7 under and Marc Leishman tied Tiger Woods for fourth at 5




under. But after back-to-back top-10 finishes at the Masters, the 32-year-old Scott authored an ending no one would forget. “He’s been looking for it, searching for it, this major title,” said Cabrera, a two-time major winner. Neither Scott nor Cabrera led as late as the 15th hole; that belonged to Day, who then posted back-to-back bogeys to open the door. Once Scott and Cabrera charged through, disaster threatened them on the first playoff hole. Both approaches rolled off the 18th green, but two brilliant chips led to two pars. On the second hole, No. 10, both again reached the green. Scott couldn’t read the putt in the darkness and called over practiced eyes: Steve Williams, who caddied for 13 of Woods’ 14 major wins. “I don’t get him to read too many putts,” Scott said. “He said it’s at least two cups, it’s going to break more than you think. I said, ‘I’m good with that.’ He was my eyes on that putt.” It rolled true and elation began anew. He met his father at the 10th green, the two embraced, and the elder Scott said simply to his son: “It doesn’t get any better than this.” Once the jacket slipped over his shoulders, Scott threw his arms up and his head back, smiling as the rain fell and everything seemed bright as day. “I’m a proud Australian and I hope this sits really well back at home,” Scott said, “and even in New Zealand.”



AUSTRALIAN ADAM SCOTT celebrates his playoff-winning shot in Sunday’s final round of the Masters. Scott is the first Australian competitor to win the Masters.

A. It’s very unlikely, but it is possible. There is always an increased chance of pregnancy when a birth control method and/or a condom is not being used. A woman’s menstrual cycle usually lasts 28-32 days. Ovulation – when a mature egg is released from an ovary – happens once during each cycle about 14 days before your period starts. Ovulation is the time when women are most fertile (most likely to get pregnant). Since menstruation represents the first few days of a cycle, it is usually far enough from ovulation to make pregnancy rare. A healthy egg and sperm are needed to get pregnant; cervical mucus that will aid sperm in reaching an egg is also helpful. Cervical mucus changes throughout the course of the menstrual cycle, and usually follows this pattern: • Days 1-5: Menstruation. • Days 6-9: Little or no mucus.

• Days 10-12: Mucus is sticky and thick. • Days 13-15: Mucus becomes thin, stretchy, and clear (consistency of egg whites). This is the time in the cycle when women are most fertile. • Days 16-21: Mucus begins to be sticky and thick again. • Days 22-28: Little or no mucus. Not every menstrual cycle is the same; some may be longer or shorter than the average. Ovulation would then change by a few days depending on the length of the cycle. To find out what times during the month you are more likely to get pregnant (and times when pregnancy is less likely) chart your own menstrual cycle. Charting involves keeping track of when your menstrual period began and when you had sex, taking your basal body temperature every day, and examining your cervical mucus.

Topaz Tundra showcases local rap talent ALEXANDRA GIROUX/ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

LOCAL RAPPERS display their lyricism and stage presence at Topaz Tundra on Friday. The venue hosted four local artists and used a new format that allowed each artist more than one set that challenged their styles as each DJ rotated out.

Topaz Tundra in downtown Tucson was shaking with deep bass hits on Friday night as its hip-hop showcase was underway. Artists from the local rap scene showcased their talents and showed that there is a collaborative effort in bringing the rap game to Tucson. Performances were spread out between two different sets as Topaz Tundra’s set up was nontraditional. The rappers traded off the

microphone at 15-minute intervals, as the DJs alternated throughout the night. “This is real intimate and shit,” said Jaca Zulu of Honor Roll Gang, as he took the microphone at the beginning of his performance. The lack of stage forced the audience and rappers to come together on one level, which created a casual and personal vibe between artist and listener that was old school in nature. The Original Saku, originally from West Virginia, fit comfortably in with the distinct flavor of the other

Tucson rappers. With a sound akin to Childish Gambino, Saku’s lyrics were honest and his flow was steady. When EFre$h performed, the vibe of the room shifted to a more serious tone as he began to rap about the hard-hitting issues of life such as probation, doing right by his children and racial profiling in Tucson. But once Honor Roll Gang grabbed the mic, the energy their presence brought to the room was nothing short of contagious. With strong lyricism and a personality-

Local Natives move forward

Rarely can an indie band be labeled as having a truly anthemic sound. The idea of such an act is contradictory, blurring the line between the underground cred that makes an indie band “indie,” while sounding as if its songs could fill up a cavernous stadium. Few bands do this sound right and fewer do the label justice. Los Angeles’ Local Natives are such a band. With its massive debut album Gorilla Manor, accolades from the likes of indie greats Arcade Fire and The National, and ample buzz surrounding its being the face of the Los Angeles indie scene, it’d be easy to assume that Local Natives are a band that’s poised for eventual pompousness. But as guitarist Ryan Hahn puts it, these things sometimes just happen, and the humility is a necessary part of it. “I wish I could say we knew what we were doing,” Hahn said. “We’re all really tight friends, so I’m not sure how we really came upon it, it just kind of happened. When we’re working on music, we just work it out that way.”

filled performance, this dynamic threesome grabbed the attention of everyone in the room. Danny Badio took the atmosphere from a low-key, underground feel to a hyped-up party. By performing a revised rendition of Meek Mill’s “House Party” instead rapping about Pima County, Badio connected with the audience on a local level. “This is how hip-hop started,” said local artist Cash Lansky, as he looked around at the crowd gathered in a semi-circle around the DJ booth. Arguably the most

well-known of acts, Lansky captivated the attention of the audience with his slick lyricism and retro background music. The showcase was well worth the $5 cover charge. The eclectic mix of acts and atmosphere offered the audience a new musical experience while allowing the local rap scene to collaborate and show their dedication to making music. “This didn’t happen overnight,” Lansky said. “There’s a whole bunch of fuckin’ yesterdays that we had to do to get to this point.”

The music, however, is held above all else. Local the face of a severely underrated scene. Hahn Natives have been called a career-oriented group, said these kind of accolades have left him slightly motivated to make strides with its music. Gorilla uncomfortable, as if he’s not quite at terms with Manor, while somewhat loose in its structure, is how influential and cultivated his band’s sound a brilliant and layered album that relies heavily has become. on massive vocal harmonies that are “I think we just kind of laughed instruments unto themselves. that one off, I don’t even know what IF YOU GO On Local Natives’ latest release, to say to that,” he said. “It’s just kind of Hummingbird, the band opted for one of those things that you let other LOCAL NATIVES a more restrained sound, changing people say. Other people are going to RIALTO THEATRE the harmonic elements from say what they’re going to say.” 8 P.M., $28 cornerstones to another facet of the It’s possible that Local Natives will young band’s musical dynamic. grow into its shoes in time. Though “A lot of the songs on [this album] kind of called the band and its members are young, it’s left with for a more direct, singular voice that just fit the not much to prove to anyone but themselves. Local narrative and the lyric,” Hahn said. “I think we Natives have found a sound, an audience and really wanted to make sure that we could expand credibility. As long as Hahn and his compatriots ourselves and not rely solely on not having a giant keep experimenting, it seems the band will find harmony on every song, like ‘Let’s do a harmony the formula it’s looking for. where it’s warranted, where it will be powerful or “It’d be dishonest for us to be like ‘This is where beautiful or effective.’” we sit in our genre, let’s just write this type of The kind of success Local Natives have achieved music,’” Hahn said. “You just do what you do and has media outlets labeling the band the premier as long as it’s honest — that’s kind of our guiding indie act in Los Angeles as of late, as if they’re principle.”
