FRESHMAN FORWARD Aaron Gordon, head basketball coach Sean Miller and junior guard Nick Johnson announce Gordon’s and Johnson’s decision to declare for the 2014 NBA Draft for this June during a press conference in McKale Center on Tuesday.
BY EVAN ROSENFELD The Daily Wildcat
Arizona freshman forward Aaron Gordon and junior guard Nick Johnson officially announced on Tuesday afternoon that they are putting their names in for this year’s NBA Draft. “Today is nothing but a good day for our program,” head coach Sean Miller said. “These are two guys from great families that took time to consider — to get the facts from the NBA, have all the
information and then make the best decision for them. I wholeheartedly support [them].” Gordon, who was named the Pac12 Freshman of the Year, averaged 12.4 points and 8.0 rebounds per game with 38 starts for the Wildcats this year. Johnson, the Pac-12 Player of the Year, led the UA in shooting with an average of 16.3 points per game and proved to be one of the best defenders in the country. After the season ended, both Johnson and Gordon were
named All-Americans with Johnson being named to the first team. Gordon’s choice was hardly surprising. He had long been projected to be a one-and-done and is expected to be a NBA Draft lottery pick. “I can certainly see why the NBA thinks so highly of him,” Miller said. “Aaron has so many gifts as a player: His high energy level, love for the game, competitive fire and ability to blend into a team … are a few of these. … Whichever franchise chooses him is

Campus Health Service will host its annual “Get Yourself Tested” resource fair on the UA Mall today. Campus Health hosts the “Get Yourself Tested” resource fair every year in order to provide a resource for students to learn about sexually transmitted diseases and get tested without paying a dime, said Carrie Hardesty , a Campus Health educator. “Every student, sexually active or not, should have free access to information and testing,” Hardesty said, “and this event allows Campus Health to provide that for them.” The fair, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., is one of many of the sexual health resources Campus Health offers to students, Hardesty said, which also include other annual events and weekly Sex [The fair] will Talk columns. help students According to Hardesty, stay safe if 50 percent they decide of sexually to become active college sexually active. students will — Brooke Ebner, contract an psychology and STD by the age sociology freshman of 25 because many STDs don’t show any signs or symptoms.

UA President Ann Weaver Hart released a statement in response to the final budget on April 11. She thanked Orr and Sen. Steve Pierce (R-District 1) for working to get the $3.5 million provided for the Cooperative Extension program. However, she expressed disappointment over a lack of funding for other projects, including the proposed veterinary medicine program. Hart said the rest of the funding would be applied to the many areas where it is critically needed, but that it may not be enough. “Our main campus has not received significant state funding support for more than six years,” Hart

said. Hart said she will be meeting with her leadership team and the deans of the UA colleges and schools to decide where to look for the additional funding the UA will need. Though the Never Settle strategic plan, which launched in November, will be set back by the lack of state funding, Hart said the UA will persevere in pursuing the plan’s goals. The effect the budget will have in the coming year has yet to be determined, according to Andrea Smiley, associate vice president of communications. She said the specifics regarding what the UA will do with the funding it was provided are not yet known. Morgan Abraham, president of the Associated Students of the University of
Arizona and an engineering management senior, said he is saddened by the final budget. Abraham said that he feels the governor and the Legislature turned their backs on the UA, which is difficult for him both as a UA student and as a native Arizonan. He added that he expects the Never Settle strategic plan and the board of regents’ goals for 2020 will have to be adjusted, because the state isn’t meeting the UA’s needs. “Higher [education] was obviously not a high priority for any of the legislators who were creating and negotiating the budget this year,” Abraham said.

Sequels: too fast, not too curious BY Logan Rogers The Daily Wildcat
ollywood is supposed to be a magnet for creative people, so why can’t it actually be creative? The movie business is out of ideas and unwilling to take risks. It takes a safe-bet superhero movie franchise like “Superman,” “Batman” or “Spider-Man,” makes a ton of money off of a trilogy and then just reboots the franchise a few years later. It’ll make a bad remake of any classic film or TV series, from “Planet of the Apes” to “Footloose” to “The Dukes of Hazzard” to “The Pink Panther.” Need I go on? It’s time for Hollywood to give up any hypocritical pretense of devotion to artistic integrity and just be honest about what it’s about these days: cashing in, selling out and scraping the bottom of the sequel barrel. So, I’ll pitch some absolutely ridiculous sequels that would be very profitable. I hope the studio big shots in La La Land are reading. “Logging Back into the Social Network” — This sequel will pick up where the original’s ambiguous ending left off. Mark Zuckerberg will continue to update his Facebook status, make friend requests, post to people’s walls and “like” stuff. The entire film will depict his three-hour Facebook binge in real time, with absolutely no dialogue. A film this arty and boring can be made on a very small budget, and since the original won a Best Motion Picture award at the Golden Globes, quite a few suckers are bound to buy a ticket. Besides, tons of people are on their smartphones in movie theaters anyway, and a lot of them are on Facebook. If the audience ignores the screen, why can’t the screen ignore the audience? “Titanic 2: My Brains Will Go On” — Two years after the sinking of the Titanic, the people who died in the shipwreck begin crawling out of the ocean onto the English coast. Now they are undead zombies, and the only thought in their mostly braindead minds is to devour the flesh of the living. Jack used to be after Rose’s heart, but now he’s only interested in her brains! I’m both excited and terrified to hear the inspiring theme song Celine Dion will come up with for this film! “Casablanca 2: Berlin Drift” — The 1942 original may be one of the greatest films of all time, but it’s way too slow for 21st-century attention spans. This one needs to be an action thriller with lots of explosions. Russell Crowe as Rick Blaine and Jamie Foxx as Sam will parachute behind enemy lines during World War II. The Nazis have killed Victor Laszlo, and Ilsa Lund (played by Jennifer Lawrence) is in a prison camp. Our heroes will rescue Ilsa, blow up Nazi stuff and maybe kill Hitler while they’re at it. You can’t tell me this movie won’t do better with the 18- to 34-year-old demographic than the original “Casablanca” did. “Some Country For Old Men!” — Tommy Lee Jones, inspired by a dream, assembles a team of over-thehill action heroes, including Clint Eastwood, the cast of “Last Vegas” and Uncle Drew from the Pepsi MAX commercials. Together, they will unite in the West Texas desert to foil the murderous high jinks of Anton Chigurh, a dastardly villain with a terrible hairdo. This lighthearted romp will do much better at the box office than the original. “Forrest Gump Returns: Stupid Is As Stupid Does… Save The World” — America’s luckiest underdog continues to be in just the right place at the right time to make history. Tom Hanks will definitely agree to act the part again if it gives him a shot at bagging another Oscar. Jenny Curran may have died in the original film, but Forrest was still alive and kicking, and in the 21st century, he will bumble into capturing Osama bin Laden, helping Barack Obama get elected as the first African-American U.S. president and, most importantly, accidentally inventing the selfie. Hollywood, you’re welcome! Steven Spielberg, please call me if you want to discuss how big my cut of the revenues will be. Disclaimer: As a general rule, nothing in Logan Rogers’ columns should be taken seriously.

Student-athletes frequently shortchanged in academics has definitely been slouching in this area. We do have set requirements, as per the Student-Athlete handbook: a minimum of a 2.0 GPA, penalties for unexcused absences and, of course, the same rules that apply to everyone about plagiarism. But these requirements are awfully minimal; a GPA of 2.0 is what is expected of everyone. It’s also unsettling that these athletes are in a system that just treats them as cash cows. They don’t receive any of the money that the university makes off of their sporting events, and to top it off, many of them don’t receive a real education either — even though higher education is what they are promised in exchange for being a valuable member of the team. It must be insanely stressful to have to compete in a team while also keeping up with schoolwork, and there isn’t much reward to make up for it. There’s no guarantee that college athletes will get into the NBA or NFL after giving all their blood and sweat to their team. According to Business Insider, less than 2 percent of college athletes who play football or basketball make it into the pros. If student-athletes’ grades suffer too much and they don’t graduate, or if they end up with a degree in a field they couldn’t care less about, they’ll be in a very bad situation. Athletes must understand that there needs to be a backup route in case things don’t work out, and to look at their education as something to be cherished and not just a chore to put up with while they play ball. I’m sure not all college athletes are enamored with the dream of making it big, but the ones that are need be wary of what the odds are.

Your Views From “Christ! Enough is enough” (by Brittany Rudolph, April 14) I’m glad someone finally wrote about this. I feel the same way. I am a Protestant Christian, and even I felt uncomfortable by their questions and I now avoid them at all costs. I can’t imagine how they are making people not of Christian faith feel. — Maddy Brittany Rudolph may think she’s altruistic, but [she’s] ultimately naive. She always has had the right to say no. What she thinks she lacks is the capacity to. I’ve never had a problem with them. I simply say, “Sorry, I’ve got to go to class,” or “Sorry, I’m too busy.” Stop trying to paint yourself as a victim
because some people asked you a few questions. I can’t even believe that she think she’s trapped on this campus. “Sure, but when it’s dark outside and few other people are around, escaping can be difficult.” What is she so afraid of? She still has the right to say no. It’s not like the practice involves pointing guns or knives at these students and forcing them to take these religious surveys. And I am disturbed by the fact that she refers to the Church’s techniques as cult-like. I don’t understand how the religious surveys are different from a consumer survey or a political survey. It’s just a marketing technique. There is no duty to submit to these things. She’s just annoyed at the subject

POLICE BEAT BY HANNAH PLOTKIN The Daily Wildcat
University of Arizona Police Department officers became involved in a conflict between a Ph.D. researcher and a postdoctoral researcher on April 8. The Ph.D. researcher reported that the postdoctoral researcher had become insubordinate after receiving a letter of termination. The postdoctoral researcher said he would withhold research if the Ph.D. researcher did not provide a letter of recommendation. The Ph.D. researcher said he was worried that the postdoctoral researcher would become violent. Officers spoke to the postdoctoral researcher; he said he had not threatened the Ph.D. researcher, who he claimed called him an â€œasshole.â€? Both men were told to speak with their department head about the conflict, and the Dean of Students Office was informed of the situation.

Drivers identified in CA crash One year after
attack, Boston pays tribute
LOS ANGELES — The drivers of a FedEx freight truck and charter bus that collided head-on last week in Northern California, killing 10, had clean driving records, according to the California Department of Motor Vehicles. The bus company, Silverado Stages, identified the driver late Monday as Talalelei Lealao-Taiao. Family members identified Tim Evans, a 32-yearold husband and father of two young girls, as the FedEx driver. Both were among the 10 killed when the FedEx truck barreled across a grassy median on Interstate 5 north of Sacramento and hit the bus carrying 48 people, including 44 Southern California high school students en route to Humboldt State University. Also among those killed in the fiery crash in Orland were three adult chaperones and five high school students. DMV records did show that Lealao-Taiao’s license had been suspended for about a month in 2004, but no explanation was available because records are purged every 10 years, said Jan Mendoza, a department spokeswoman. In general, the reasons can range from an unpaid parking ticket to driving under the influence, officials said. It was also not immediately clear what type of license it was. Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board have been trying to figure out what caused the crash, using video footage and witness accounts to piece together the sequence of events. They plan to examine two new pieces of video evidence: One is cellphone video shot by the driver of a Nissan Altima hit by the truck just before it slammed into the bus. The other is footage from a dashboard camera provided by the California Highway Patrol. More clues may also be available from a black boxtype recorder on the bus that

safety record when she was with us and was very well-liked by everybody she worked with,” said John Busskohl, chief executive of Ryan’s Express Transportation, where Lealao-Taiao had worked for about two-and-a-half years before moving to Silverado Stages. News of her death hit his colleagues hard as well, Busskohl said. “It was tough on some folks here for sure,” he said. Her daughter, Jordayna Lealao, thanked friends and family for their outpouring of remembrances in one Facebook post. “This is a time that we should celebrate the beautiful life my mother lived,” the post read. “I know she wouldn’t [want] us to be sad right now.” The Glenn County coroner said on Monday that none of the 10 victims had been officially identified because of the extent of damage to the bodies. Authorities are relying on dental records and DNA analysis. Some families, however, have confirmed some of the names of the dead.
BOSTON — A memorial for the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings ended Tuesday with a thunderous speech from Vice President Joe Biden, who closed an afternoon highlighting remarks from bombing survivors and dignitaries. “We will never yield, we will never cower, America will never … stand down,” Biden said. “We are Boston. We are America. We respond, we endure, we overcome and we own the finish line! God bless you all, and may God protect our troops.” In Washington, President Barack Obama planned to observe the anniversary with a private moment of silence at the White House. One year after two pressure-cooker bombs tore through the crowd at the finish line at the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 260 others, people throughout the city paused to reflect on the day with tributes, prayers, speeches and music. At a private ceremony in the morning, families of the victims placed wreaths at the two bombing sites — in front of the Forum restaurant on Boston’s Boylston Street, and near Marathon Sports a block away. Police honor guards stood sentry around the wreaths all day. The marathon will be held on Monday this year. It is expected to be the second most crowded field ever, after the marathon’s centennial in 1996. A year after the marathon, many victims who previously had not spoken to the media have been featured in local newspapers and TV stations. The family of Martin Richard, 8, who was killed in the bombing, appeared in a lengthy two-part Boston Globe story about recovering from the bombing. Signs along the Boylston Street finish line area remind residents to be “Boston Strong,” but no formal memorial has been erected at the bombing sites. Still, those who were near the finish line a year ago say they think about it every day. Gerardo DeFabritiis is a manager at the Tannery, an upscale shoe and clothing store across from the site where the first bomb went off. His daughter and sonin-law were visiting the store on marathon day last year and were about to leave when he called them back in to see a new line of T-shirts. The bomb went off soon after. “They would have been right there,” he said, remembering, pointing to the spot where the bomb went off. He remembers walking outside after the bombing and seeing a woman on the ground, bleeding. He thinks about the bombing whenever he passes over that little piece of sidewalk. He learned something from that day, he said: “When your time comes, your time comes.”

BOY MEETS WORLD Arizona freshman Aaron Gordon is NBA-bound; while he is still only 18 years old, he has grown up a lot this year BY LUKE DELLA
The Daily Wildcat
nside McKale Center’s press conference room, the Wildcats’ Aaron Gordon looked out to a jam-packed room stuffed with media members and cameras awaiting his long-anticipated decision. And with one quick breath, Gordon said his final goodbyes and announced he was off to the professional ranks. “From the first grade I wanted to compete at the highest level, and that’s what I plan on doing next year and I’m going to go to the NBA,” Gordon said on Tuesday. “I’m really going to flourish. I think my game’s going to expand.” While Gordon’s Arizona career will likely be remembered for his freshman record-breaking statistics and accolades, how much the 18-year-old grew up over just a few months might get lost. No one on this Wildcats team hated losing more than Gordon. And no one was more up front about it than Gordon. Immediately following Arizona’s 75-71 loss in the Pac-12 Tournament championship game at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on March 15, the small locker room seemed to shrink in the silence. Gordon sat hunched with a towel over his head. “What are you doing?” Gordon asked as a photographer took his photo. Looking up, Gordon had watery eyes and rosy red cheeks from the fist that had been holding up his stooped head. Unsure if Gordon understood, the professional photographer explained he had every right to be in the locker room and to take photographs. “Cool,” Gordon said sarcastically. “Whatever you got to do to make some money.” Frustrated, Gordon got up, bumped a teammate out of the way and went to the showers to clean off his sweat and his tears. But Arizona’s season wasn’t over. It had just failed to accomplish
one of its three season-long goals. A goal that the team set during the summer, a goal it was favored to accomplish and a goal that would have given it even more confidence heading into the 2014 NCAA Tournament. The Wildcats, then 30-4, were favorites to get a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. “I believe that some of the things we learned in today’s game will better serve us for the biggest prize while we all do this, and that is to hopefully be able to advance next week in the NCAA Tournament,” said Arizona head basketball coach Sean Miller after the loss to UCLA. “For us, it’s about the NCAA Tournament,” Miller added. Winning the entire NCAA Tournament championship was the big prize. It was almost a big enough reason for Gordon to put millions of dollars and NBA aspirations on hold. “I can be a pretty emotional guy,” Gordon said, back in the locker room a week after the loss to UCLA. “I hate losing, even more than the next guy. Basketball is so important to me.” In San Diego, the Wildcats prepared for their first NCAA Tournament game of the year, Gordon’s first ever. There was no awkward silence, and the tears from sadness were now tears from joy as the team joked and laughed after an hourlong practice. “I just like having fun,” Rondae Hollis-Jefferson said with smile. “When there’s an environment like this, I can’t help but be a goofball.” The madness of March was alive and well, and would only get more intense as Arizona kept winning. After its third-round 84-61 demolishing of Gonzaga, Arizona’s locker room seemed to have grown. Excitement and energy pushed the walls open, yelling and music opened up the cramped hallways and laughter brightened the underground room. In the locker room, HollisJefferson had been pushed into the corner, fenced in by reporters. “We’re playing basketball,”
Hollis-Jefferson said loudly with wide eyes and an even wider smile. “If you can’t get excited about doing something you love, then you don’t love it enough.” But the singing and laughing would only last so long, because just as fast as the tournament heated up, it ended. Six days later, the fun and the games were all over. “It’s like [how] a car crashes, you know,” Miller said following the Wildcats’ 64-63 loss to Wisconsin in the Elite Eight. “It’s just, you’re done.” There again sitting in the corner, head hunched with his eyes watery and cheeks rosy, was Gordon. No towel covered his face that time; Gordon appeared to try his hardest to keep the walls from closing in on him. Enclosed by dozens of reporters and cameras, Gordon raised his head, wiped his nose and collected his thoughts. “Losing a game is not [a] tragedy,” Gordon said. “There’s real tragedies all over the world. This is just basketball.” After answering every question, Gordon broke the silence by standing up and giving players hugs. “I don’t know if you could coach a kid that you love more than him,” Miller said of Gordon. “It’s not about his rebounding or his talent. It’s more about how you love having him on your team, because he’s the ultimate winner, the ultimate teammate.”

NBA PROFILES It’s one thing to dominate in college basketball, but it’s another in the NBA — how will Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson perform at the next level? BY LUKE DELLA
The Daily Wildcat
Aaron Gordon Height: 6-foot-9 Weight: 225 pounds Draft stock: Top 10 Projected NBA position: PF Upside: Athletic, rebounder, passer and defender Downside: Offensive limitation as a scorer Good fit: Los Angeles Lakers Bad fit: Boston Celtics NBA comparison: Antawn Jamison
Now that Arizona’s Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson have announced their NBA decisions, speculations about how they will fare at the NBA level will likely begin to blossom. Will Gordon develop into another Blake Griffin type of player, or will a team that struggles to develop draft him and turn him into a bust? As for Johnson, he’s got a more difficult challenge. The 6-foot-3 guard is thought to be too
undersized to play at the shooting guard position in the NBA, but hasn’t developed enough point guard skills to risk picking. However, lucky for Johnson, he was blessed with elite athleticism — even by college basketball standards. That, combined with a defensive mindset and knowledge of the game, gives Wildcats head coach Sean Miller reason to believe that Johnson can succeed at the next level.

Baseball power rankings
Arizona rises in rankings over the weekend 11) and win the series against Stanford this week.
BY Joey Putrelo The Daily Wildcat
1. No. 4 Oregon State (27-7, 11-4 Pac-12 Conference)
The Beavers just captured another series after defeating a hot Washington State team that had won six of its last seven games. Now a top-five program in the NCBWA rankings, it would be unfair not to rate OSU the best in the Pac-12.
2. No. 15 Washington (24-7-1, 12-3)
I’ve had Washington as the top Pac-12 team in the previous three power rankings, and I was reluctant to drop them down a spot this week. The Huskies have won all five conference series played this season, continuing that hot streak against Stanford over the weekend. They just keep climbing up the polls.
3. No. 10 Oregon (27-10, 7-5)
Victorious in six consecutive games, the Ducks have picked an excellent time to start heating up. After facing some light non-conference competition last week, 20 of the 22 games left on Oregon’s schedule are against Pac-12 teams.
4. ASU (19-14, 9-6)
Last weekend’s series against California was probably more competitive than the Sun Devils hoped, but they still pulled out another conference series victory. ASU could fade out of postseason discussion if it doesn’t beat UNLV (25-
5. Washington State (16-16, 7-5)
The Cougars were shut out 3-0 at home against an under-.500 Brigham Young (14-24) squad and dropped two out of three against Oregon State in the past week. But WSU lefty ace Joe Pistorese (3-1, 2.76) gained the program some positive publicity by earning Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week.
6. No. 27 UCLA (19-15, 7-5)
After losing a Pac-12 series against Arizona over the weekend, it is officially time for UCLA to push the panic button. This week’s trio of upcoming contests against Utah are arguably all must-win if the Bruins hope to make the playoffs.
7. USC (17-17, 6-9)
The Trojans gave Utah its second Pac-12 win of the season, but still won the series. USC’s upcoming series at home against Arizona should be a competitive one.
8. Arizona (17-20, 6-9)
There couldn’t have been a better time for the Wildcats to host UCLA at home, while it was in the middle of cooling off. The walk-off win on Sunday showed that Arizona is not going to completely fold just because it won’t be in the postseason. This season’s team finally showed that “there’s a standard here.”
9. California (15-17, 4-8)

Cal showed a lot of fight at Packard Stadium against ASU, but still lost the series. The Golden Bears are going to have to fight harder this week in a three-contest affair at home versus Washington.
10. Stanford (12-16, 4-8)
Losing the first two, where it was outscored 133, Stanford was at least able to salvage a 6-3 win over Washington on Sunday. The Cardinal must be excited to get back to Klein Field at Sunken Diamond for a bit after playing six of its last seven

Former minor league baseball team the Tucson Padres, now the El Paso Chihuahuas, played a four-game series this weekend against the Reno Aces at their previous home, Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium. The Chihuahuas, the San Diego Padres’ Triple-A affiliate, had to beat a former Major League Baseball All-Star to end the series in a 2-2 draw. After starting the series off with a win on Friday 2-1, El Paso dropped the following two games to the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Triple-A affiliate on Saturday and Sunday, 11-1 and 6-4. But on Monday, behind a strong offensive third inning, the Chihuahuas won 5-3. “I thought we played a great series,” Aces head coach Phil Nevin said. “We continue to play great defense, so that will help us win a lot of games.” Just a few hours before the start of Monday night’s game, Aces pitcher

It took 13 innings last Friday, but Utah finally earned its first Pac-12 road win of 2014. This team needs to recruit some better bats; the Utes remain dead last in the conference with a .218 batting average. — Follow Joey Putrelo @JoeyPutrelo

Arizona is going to be successful at the highest level with or without me. That’s just the nature of the program.” Gordon said that in the end, he needed to make the decision that was right for him, and decided that meant going to the NBA. He said that ever since the first grade, he has wanted to compete at the highest level, and that’s what he intends to do. Johnson’s decision was a bit more difficult. Due to his size and ability, there’s no set position that quite fits him at the NBA level. This, coupled with the fact that the team got so close to playing for its national championship goal, served as a major temptation for Johnson to return for his senior year. “I can’t stress it enough — it’s been a great experience at Arizona [and] a great three years,” Johnson said. “I’ve taken time to think about my decision since the end of the season and really talked to coach Miller, my family and a few people I trust. The feedback that I got was something I was confident in, so I’ve chosen to put my name into this year’s draft.” Miller finished by saying that he is anxious to watch both Gordon and Johnson mature and develop as they take the next step toward successful careers in the NBA. “Two different people are going to go on and do great things,” Miller said, “and, most importantly, represent our university and our basketball program with tremendous class for a very long time.”
Bolsinger moved up to the majors. “Bolsinger has pitched very well,” Nevin said, “and he deserved to be moved up to the Diamondbacks.” Chihuahuas pitcher Juan Pablo Oramas (1-0) picked up his first win of the season. Oramas allowed one run in five innings and struck out seven batters with no walks on Monday. “Everyone played very well this series,” Oramas said. “We should do well against Albuquerque and Las Vegas this week.” The Chihuahuas will continue their 24-game road trip this week playing the Albuquerque Isotopes and the Las Vegas 51s. On April 28, the team will have its first home game at its stadium in El Paso against the Freson Grizzlies. The Aces will also be on the road this week, playing the Las Vegas 51’s and the Fresno Grizzlies.
Mike Bolsinger was called up to the Diamondbacks, leaving an open spot in the rotation. Longtime MLB pitcher and 2003 MLB All-Star left-hand pitcher Randy Wolf (0-1) filled in for Bolsinger. Wolf, who was added to the roster that day, made his Aces debut that night. In the first two innings of the game, Wolf struck out six batters before his smooth start came to a halt. In the third inning, he allowed four runs, followed up by a single and three doubles. Chihuahua infielders Brooks Conrad and Kyle Blanks, along with outfielder Jeff Francoeur, combined for five runs batted in on Monday night. Conrad and Blanks each had two RBIs, and Francoeur had one RBI. The Aces were able to get one run on the board when outfielder Alfredo Marte hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. Even though Wolf had a rocky start to his Aces career and the Aces lost on Monday night, Nevin was still happy with the fourgame series. Nevin was also welcoming to Wolf as

Rising indie-pop group brings tour to Rialto Theatre BY chelsey wade
The Daily Wildcat
Foster the People/ Columbia Records
Foster the People’s second album “Supermodel” was released in March. The indie-pop band will perform tonight at the Rialto Theatre.
Mark Foster worked as a jingle writer for Honey Bunches of Oats in Los Angeles. Little did he know that in two years, his song “Pumped Up Kicks” would spend eight consecutive weeks ranked third on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The indie-pop band Foster the People will perform at the Rialto Theatre tonight alongside music and art project Young & Sick, the band that designed the cover art for Foster the People’s first album and music videos for its second. “We are only a couple of seats from being sold out right now, so we expect a sold-out show,” said Kristopher Kerry, one of the Rialto Theatre’s talent buyers. Foster (vocals, piano, guitar) joined up with his long-time friend Cubbie Fink (bass, backing vocals) and film student Mark Pontius (drums, percussion) in 2009 to create the catchy indie-pop band that is now Foster the People. A year later, the trio posted their song “Pumped up Kicks” as a free download
on the internet, and it became a viral success among listeners within a year. The band’s hit song led it to perform at popular music festivals including Coachella, SXSW and Sasquatch, and landed it a multi-album deal. The band name Foster the People stems from a misinterpretation of the original title, Foster and the People. The band is currently on a world tour celebrating the release of its sophomore album, Supermodel, which released in March. “They are quite a hot act at the moment and are really good,” Kerry said, “but with only two albums under their belt, it is hard to predict their place overall in the music world. … I’ve always said the difference between a four-star and five-star album is 10 years. But the way things are looking for Foster the People, I wouldn’t be surprised if they became a much bigger act than they are currently.” The less-electronic second album follows the success of the band’s twiceGrammy-nominated first album Torches from 2011. While Torches embraced a
dance-provoking pop sound, the band focused on a more organic production of instruments in its second album and decided not to use software synth. The band’s attempt to distinguish itself in a complicated and fame-obsessed world has not been embraced by all critics. “Instead, [Supermodel is] a collection of snapshots of a band stretching toward a brilliantly kaleidoscopic, eclectic new sound — and almost reaching it,” NME said in its Supermodel review. The changes in the album’s sound can be attributed to the changes within Foster himself. After a three-month exploration through Morocco and India, Foster initially recorded Supermodel in Morocco. Lyrics from the album express his conflict between self and others, as in the song “The Truth”: “A purpose is needed before you know that you know, to never wonder what you are, and not forget where you come from.” — Follow Chelsey Wade @DailyWildcat
