Foster the good music
f your friends were at Coachella last weekend or are heading out for it this weekend, hopefully you took the opportunity to experience the music scene that came right to our own backyard. Over the past week, Foster the People took a hiatus from performing at the notorious music festival to perform at Tucson’s own Rialto Theatre. The sold-out show drew in an eclectic audience of all ages who packed the floor in front of a psychedelically decorated stage with flashing light-up crystals, reminiscent of the Tucson Gem and Jam stage decor. The high-energy band stormed the stage and its signature electronic-inspired, indie-pop music blared over the speakers. What you might think is autotuned is actually just the real sound of the lead singer Mark Foster’s voice. Although some of Foster’s songs seemed to blur together with their similar electronic tones and fast-paced beats, there were a few monumental moments that broke up the show, one of which was the performance of “Houdini.” “We’ve never done this before,” Foster said. “This is new for me, too.” Instead of playing “Houdini”’s usual synth sounds, Foster strummed the melody on an acoustic guitar, accompanied by a tambourine and some back-up vocals. The alternative performance shone, highlighting the thoughtful lyrics of the song and inviting the audience to feel the full emotion behind every line. The most memorable of the lyrics:

Music, movies for the final stretch MELANIE TRECHA This is it. The final stretch. We have a month left, and you know what that means: It’s time to study, study, study. But what if you don’t want to do that? What if you would rather have a life? If you just can’t force yourself to read one more word of your Spanish novel or balance another equation, KAMP Radio has you covered. Here are some things to do in April that have absolutely nothing to do with school.

FOSTER THE PEOPLE, an indie rock trio, performs at the Rialto Theatre on Wednesday.
“Sometimes I want to disappear.” Predictably, the second-most memorable moment from the concert was the performance of the band’s most widely known song, “Pumped Up Kicks.” The band’s breakout song ruled the Billboard Hot 100 charts at No. 3 for eight weeks during 2011. Besides being highly catchy, it also received a lot of attention for the meaning behind its lyrics; Foster wrote the song from the perspective of a troubled youth with homicidal thoughts. Despite the dark premise behind the lyrics, the crowd belted out every word and cheered wildly for the band’s most popular song. — Follow Tatiana Tomich @xoTatianaTom
CONCERTS: OFF! — Monday at Club Congress We’ve got our indie, rock ‘n’ roll and ’90s folk fix, so now it’s time for some punk. OFF! includes Keith Morris, one of the members of the one and only, punkest of punk bands, Black Flag. Yes, he’s older, but let’s all go celebrate punk dads. This will rule. Bombay Bicycle Club — April 24 at Club Congress Coming off its fourth studio album, this is sure to be a solid show. I’m honestly surprised it’s at Club Congress, because this band will definitely fill the venue up. Be sure to grab a ticket ASAP. This is for fans of Foals and other indie dance tunes. Beck — April 23 at Rialto Theatre BECK. B-E-C-K. This is a big one for Tucson. From Odelay to Guero to his latest

‘Bad Words’ spells out mediocrity
ctor Jason Bateman makes his directorial debut with a comedy about an adult competing in children’s spelling bees. Despite some laughs and a relatively intriguing, if not ludicrous, premise “Bad Words” takes too many missteps to elicit writing many good words about it. Guy Trilby (Jason Bateman) is a grown man hailing from Columbus, Ohio, on a slightly juvenile, ill-fitting mission: to win the National Quill Spelling Bee, a competition intended for children who have not finished eighth grade, much like its real world counterpart the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Trilby has the dubious yet fortunate distinction of having not completed the eighth grade, and through this loophole, he can compete against kids who are a quarter his age. Accompanying him is Jenny Widgeon (Kathryn Hahn), a journalist trying to
find out why an adult has decided to hustle 13-year-olds at spelling, but she just ends up sleeping with him. This film is the spiritual kin of something like “Happy Gilmore” in more ways than one. Trilby is a loudmouthed anomaly in the straight-laced atmosphere of spelling, yet he has an uncanny aptitude for the craft. Like Happy’s record-setting long-distance drives, Trilby can spell any multisyllabic word that’s thrown at him, and like the stuffy golfers in “Happy Gilmore,” the parents of the kids aren’t too happy with an outsider crashing the party. There is one person, though, who is pleased to meet Trilby: Chaitanya Chopra (Rohan Chand), a wide-eyed, smiling Indian kid looking for a friend. For some cheap laughs, the movie rolls out every Indian joke it can think of for Trilby throw at Chopra, from “slumdog” to threatening to tell the airplane stewardess that his bag is ticking. These jokes are plentiful, yet the laughs are relatively few — not a
very good ratio. Bateman and screenwriter Andrew Dodge should not have focused as heavily on the mystery of Trilby’s past and intentions. When the big reveal comes, it doesn’t really arrive with much heft, narratively or emotionally. it’s neither jaw-dropping nor heart wrenching, but instead rather ho-hum. But if more attention had been placed on Trilby’s inner demons in order to give the thread more gravity, then the comedy would have been sacrificed. Bateman’s first stab at directing isn’t a failed one in the slightest. There’s some promise here, but his freshman film has left a lot of room for growth.

New HBO show ‘Silicon Valley’ is good, nerdy fun
BO debuted “Silicon Valley,” a smart new comedy from Mike Judge (“Beavis and Butthead,” “Office Space”) two weeks ago. Though it’s only two episodes in, the show is fantastic. Set in California’s tech-savvy South Bay, “Silicon Valley” follows the lives of five software developers trying to make it big. The show’s protagonist, Richard, has created a potentially revolutionary compression algorithm. He finds himself having to make the choice between selling it to Hooli, a big Google-like company, for $10 million, or taking $200,000 from investor Peter Gregory, who offers guidance and a chance for Richard to build his own company around this algorithm, and he takes the latter offer. Although “Silicon Valley” is satire, it deals with many of the harsh realities of tech capitalism. Talent in programming and app design is always of foremost importance for developing start-ups, but the business aspect can often be overlooked. The show doesn’t
sugarcoat the narrative, as Richard is brought back down to earth rather quickly when he realizes that he doesn’t know how to put together a simple business plan, much less his own company. Everything about this show works through the first two episodes. Judge is a master architect of worlds and among the best at perfecting atmosphere and nuance, “Office Space” being a primary example of this. He actually worked in Silicon Valley 25 years ago and captures the culture in way that’s satirical, yet starkly real. Richard and his band of nerds have trouble talking to (and generally being around) women, they play video games and make the snarkiest of jokes about mobile apps. The acting in this show is amazing. Among the great breakout performances — of which there are many — Thomas Middleditch (Richard) and T.J. Miller (Erlich) stand out from the pack. Martin Starr (Gilfoyle) of “Freaks and Geeks” fame has never been better. The same can be said for the great Christopher Evan Welch (Peter Gregory) of “The Master” and the sleazy Matt Ross (Gavin Belson) of “Magic City.”
Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Thomas Middleditch, Zach Woods and T.J. Miller star in HBO’s new series “Silicon Valley.” Only two episodes have aired so far, but they show great promise.
For Judge, “Silicon Valley” has the most widespread appeal of anything he’s done. It always seems like his work isn’t appreciated until years after the fact. But now he’s on HBO, wedged right in the middle of a loaded Sunday night block of programming that includes the insanely popular “Game of Thrones” and the smart, witty “Veep.” Grantland’s Andy Greenwald claims “HBO suddenly has the best hour of comedy on TV,” and it’s hard to argue with him. Think “Entourage” but smarter, and with nerds instead of movie stars. And whereas “Entourage” had deteriorated into a comically
bad show by its final season, “Silicon Valley” is unlikely to follow in those footsteps. Judge has been here before and has done television for a long time. He’s great at not only building worlds, but also staying within them. “Entourage” was always walking the fine line of realism and frat house fantasy, but ultimately succumbed to the latter. It was a sell-out. But here, Judge and his band of nerds have already decided to chase the dream. — Follow Taylor Armosino @tarmosino

Favorite drink to make? My favorite drink to make is actually a shot and it’s called crembo. It’s 99 Bananas, 151, a little bit of Malibu, Midori, pineapple and orange juice. Least favorite drink to make? I don’t really have a least favorite drink to make. I generally will make whatever’s out there. Sometimes, when it’s really busy, and people order Bloody Mary’s at nine o’clock at night, it’s kind of a little odd, but it doesn’t really bother me that much. I just do it. I don’t have any drinks I don’t like. Everybody drinks different things for different reasons. Some people like really sweet stuff, so Long Island and Tokyo Tea are perfect for them. Some people don’t like the sweet stuff as much, so they drink the more classic drinks, like old fashioneds or martinis. How long have you been at No Anchovies? Nine years? In those nine years, can you pinpoint a most memorable customer? It’s kind of hard to pinpoint a really memorable customer — except for this one girl that was laying with her head in her boyfriend’s lap … and he picked up a full ranch cup and dumped it into her mouth and she jumped up … like disgusted, and then he just reached behind her head and just started making out with her, they were making out with just ranch running down both their chins and just getting everywhere. That’s an image I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get out of my head.

Writing a book for a cause Student transforms panic into poetry
itting in Exo Roast Co., her favorite coffee shop, Kati Standefer looks at home among the faded red brick and dark wood tones. The room feels open with its high ceilings, and natural light streams in from the large windows that make up the front wall. Standefer, who chooses not to have Wi-Fi at home, can be found here most mornings with her laptop and a stack of papers. Standefer, a 28-year-old studying creative nonfiction in the Masters of Fine Arts program, is working on a Kickstarter campaign. The campaign, which ends Saturday, is to raise funds for her book project, “Mountains In My Body: A Memoir.” As of Thursday evening, she had raised a little over half of her $16,000 goal with more than 160 backers. She has mere days to gain the remaining support. Her book will trace the backstory of her internal cardiac defibrillator, which has created a raised, shiny scar on the left side of her chest. As she explains the project’s origin, she leans forward in excitement. “At age 7 I told my parents that I was going to move to Wyoming, live in a cabin in the woods and be a writer,” she said. After getting her undergraduate degrees in sociology and English with a fiction writing emphasis at Colorado College, Standefer moved to Wyoming to gain life experience. At 22,

here she was, standing alone in the lobby with patrons slowly passing her, walking in through the narrow set of doors leading to the concert hall. She saw them as anachronisms, long-gone actors from some German Expressionist film, their movements languid and unapologetic. It was here, she said, she started to panic. A year after her initial panic attack, creative writing senior Lauren Boyan said she recognized the feeling, but that this time it was different. She didn’t try to stop herself, Boyan said. She allowed herself to experience the nerve-wracking abundance of over-stimulation, while tightly grasping reality in the form of her lover’s hand. She said “intoxicating” would be the only word to express what she was feeling. It seemed as if Boyan’s thoughts
were a separate entity all together, swirling around her like some spectral vision. It was there in that lobby that Boyan’s voice was born — the very nectar that gave her writing its life. It was there that the perfect pairing of style with inspiration was conceived, defining her as a writer, poet and everything in between. “This event resonates in me when I write,” Boyan said. “I try to create a saturated experience, which leans into uncomfortable and self-conscious, but with humor as a coping skill.” While she primarily wrote humorous pieces in the past, it was this experience of panic that allowed Boyan to develop into an writer. She describes the scene in the lobby that night as the point when her fears were immortalized. “[It’s] how I learned to stop

worrying and love the chaos [of the] moment,” she said. Boyan will have the opportunity to share her revelations with others this Sunday at Café Passe’s Trans and Queer Poetry Night at 6 p.m. She is one of several readers set to read selections of their works for an audience gathered to support local writers, as well and trans* and queer folk. With the pen as her weapon and humor as her trusty sidekick, she delves into the deeper issues that plague anyone who dares to evaluate their own existence. “I am always trying to get at the unknowable, and striving for comfort in the disorientation I always seem to find in the end,” Boyan said. She aims to channel those hard and thoughtful examinations of life into something she can share with others. “The main piece I’ll be doing is an experimental essay about orienting myself in hysteria, being a femme queer being driven mad by my womb,” Boyan said. Boyan strives to mix up genre and convention in her writing, while at the same time keeping a dash of traditional flavorings. She admits that while she doesn’t exactly reject the commonplace ins and outs of the world around

social justice, environmental activism and poverty, as well as working as a sexual health educator to raise awareness about gender issues and gender violence. Standefer might have lived out her childhood fantasy as a writer in Wyoming had she not passed out without warning in a parking lot in June 2009. At 24, she was diagnosed with congenital long QT syndrome, a potentially life-threatening arrhythmia. Her younger sister had been diagnosed with the same problem and had an ICD implanted two years before. After her collapse, Standefer lived with the fear that she could die at any moment. She did not have any medical insurance or the money for the machine that could potentially save her life. She also struggled with the implications of actually getting the defibrillator. Because of her natural ambivalence toward technology, she could hardly imagine a life dependent on machinery in such an intimate way. In the end, her fear and the persistence of her sister’s doctor won. She then had to find a way to pay for the device. In 2009, she could not get coverage under the U.S. health care system without working full-time

her, she finds a certain pleasure in blurring traditional lines. “The act of sharing writing through a reading allows trans and queer artists in our community to have a space to be heard as well as seen,” Boyan said. “The night is labeled ‘poetry,’ though it is more of a celebration of trans* and queer uses of language.”
for a company that provided benefits. She began to question her faith in writing, which she felt had betrayed her — had she taken a normal job after college, she would’ve had insurance. In June 2010, after recovering from other serious medical complications, Standefer said her “body took the forefront” in her life. Her interest in the body, consent and medical technology deepened, and she began to look for the connection among them. She applied for the UA’s MFA program, partly because it would provide her with medical insurance — she is an employed teacher as part of the program — and because she knew she needed to improve her writing. She moved to Tucson after being accepted and is currently teaching a creative nonfiction writing workshop. For Standefer, the years with the defibrillator eased her qualms about technological dependence — until last November. While she was playing in an intramural soccer match, her ICD suddenly malfunctioned and sent three unnecessary shocks to her heart. She said the shocks, which knocked her to the ground, were incredibly painful and terrifying. While lying on the ground, Standefer said a question came to her mind: Can a life-saving device cause death because of what is required to
— Follow Daniel Burkart @DailyWildcat make it? That question led her to the outline for her book project. She has attempted to trace back where the various metals and parts of her defibrillator originated, and has found mining as the starting point. In her book, she will contrast the scientific deconstruction of the defibrillator with her memoir about the increasing complexity of her attitude toward the ICD. If her Kickstarter campaign is successful, Standefer will begin her search by traveling to Madagascar to investigate a socially responsible mine. She wants to see what the sustainability looks like on paper versus its effect on the communities and people around the mine. She said she hopes the research and writing will help her better understand her ambivalence toward the defibrillator and clarify the implications of such a device. Her ICD is due for replacement in a couple of years, and, with the help of this book, she intends to more fully explore what she’s really consenting to. “I am no longer guaranteed the long life we’re promised as children,” she said. “So what am I going to do with mine?”

vajayjays have their day Feminist advocacy organization presents ‘The Vagina Monologues’ to break taboos, empower women, benefit sexual abuse prevention
he Wildcat Community for Feminist Advocacy hopes to break the stigma typically associated with the word “vagina” with its production of “The Vagina Monologues” this weekend. “I think the taboo comes from an entire history of shame and guilt that was imposed on women about their vaginas,” said Savannah Martin, WCFA president and political science senior. “There is a whole culture and guilt around women’s sexuality. Women are taught to not talk about their vaginas, and that periods are dirty.” “The Vagina Monologues” is a play composed of interviews with real women that celebrates the trials and tribulations of being a woman. “The stories were collected from a series of women around the world,” Martin said. The play includes 17 monologues and scenes. “In 1996, Eve Endler [the playwright] had interviews with a huge group of diverse women of all ages and all acts of life,” said Heather Phillips, WCFA Vice President, stage director, cast member and theater design and technology senior. “She took the stories and compiled them into a collection of monologues that explore the challenges and joys of being a woman.”
Each year, Endler writes an additional auditions and were not all initially affiliated spotlight monologue that focuses on a with the club, but Martin said she hopes that current pressing issue. This year, there are two they will continue to be a part of WCFA after spotlights. The first is a personal testament the show ends this weekend. This is WCFA’s first year on campus. The by the playwright about her experience with club was created after sexual abuse from the deterioration of the her father when previous organization she was a young What: The Wildcat that produced the annual woman.

WCFA is affiliated with the program a group of around 15 volunteers that assist through internships offered by the club. Phillips said she hopes the monologues with production. WCFA members’ main role will help women feel like they have access to in the monologues is production. The actresses were cast through open similar outreach programs.
“Within the sorority and fraternity organizations, it’s a womanhood and a community of females sharing an environment,” Phillips said. “But when they go out at night, they are going out into risky situations because there is so little prevention outreach to all of the organizations.” Martin said she wants to raise awareness of the struggles that women face, as well as honor the victories they have already achieved. “I hope that they gain courage,” Martin said. “Part of ‘The Vagina Monologues’ is taking subjects like the vagina and sex and women’s lives and shattering the taboo.” According to Martin, the play is not just for women, and is just as important for men because “there is not a single male that doesn’t have a woman in his life.” She said she hopes that men will reconsider their role in the general effort to combat violence against women and the effort to gain equality. “‘The Vagina Monologues’ is for everybody,” Martin said. “It’s not about hating men, it’s about coming together and celebrating the women in our lives, how far we have come and how far we have to go.”

Wildcats see their winning streak snapped at USC as Trojan starter Wyatt Strahan pitches a complete game shutout
Check out UA’s future on Friday
JOEY PUTRELO Arizona baseball found itself locked in a pitchers’ duel with Pac-12 foe USC at Dedeaux Field in Los Angeles on Thursday night, but the Wildcats ultimately fell short and were shut out 1-0. Senior righty James Farris (5-4) took the loss for the Wildcats (17-21, 6-10 Pac-12 ), while USC junior and fellow right-hander Wyatt Strahan (3-3) earned the victory. Both hurlers tossed complete games. Farris, who had struggled in his previous several starts, gave his best performance against a conference opponent of the season. He allowed just one earned run over eight innings on six hits and had as many strikeouts. Not a single batter was walked by Farris. It was also a very efficient night for the veteran, as he only threw 91 total pitches. Farris entered the contest with a 4.59 earned run average, but chopped it down to 4.23. Alas, his efforts would not be enough, as Strahan was lights out the entire game. The Villa Park, Calif., native went the distance without giving up any runs. As a team, Arizona only had five total base hits and stranded seven

Arizona basketball fans going through Nick Johnson or Aaron Gordon withdrawal can get their fix Friday night. While Gordon and Nick Johnson left early for the NBA, Arizona has reloaded with a recruiting class ranked No. 3 by Scout and 247Sports and No. 6 by ESPN. Headlining the class is Stanley Johnson, who will be playing Friday night in the Jordan Brand Classic at 4 p.m. on ESPN2. In 2014, Stanley Johnson’s highlights are easily accessible, of course — he’s certainly worth a Google — and though it’s only an all-star game, events like the JBC offer more realistic depictions of a player’s skills than YouTube mix tapes or regular-season high school games where the Stanley Johnsons are as big as the centers. The JBC is Stanley Johnson’s third major all-star game, and after a couple of decent performances, the MaxPreps National Player of the Year is due for a breakout game. In the McDonald’s All-American game, Stanley Johnson had decent stats, eight points and four rebounds, but his athleticism impressed many — including Sports Illustrated and Tony Jones, the Utah Jazz beat writer for the Salt Lake Tribune. Jones tweeted: “Stanley Johnson might lead the Pac-12 in scoring as a freshman.” The McDonald’s All-American game has the most cachet, but another reason to watch the Jordan Brand Classic is that the uniforms will surely be better.

Wildcats excited for break this weekend
BY evan rosenfeld The Daily Wildcat
Arizona baseball vs. USC Arizona has been meshing, offensively and defensively. Winners of five of the last six games before their trip to USC, the Wildcats went to Los Angeles with momentum and will win their third-straight Pac-12 series. Arizona 2 games, USC 1
roberto payne For the first time in the 2014 regular season, the No. 9 Arizona softball team does not have a weekend game. The Wildcats have played every weekend before this and will play every weekend after. If the Wildcats make it to the Women’s College World Series, this will be their only bye week from early February to June. Coincidentally, Arizona (34-9, 9-6) has its off-week during Easter weekend, which will allow players to spend time with their families and relax. However, redshirt junior shortstop Kellie Fox said the team is still going to work hard, despite the downtime. “We’re going to have a strong week of practice; we have a few scrimmage days and then we’re going to rest our bodies,” Fox said. “We’re going to have a good Easter weekend, sit back and relax just for a few days and then get back to the grind.” The Wildcats will have time to recover after hitting the road for two of the last three weekends and going 3-3 in those road games. It’s no secret the Wildcats have struggled on the road this season, and now Arizona head coach Mike Candrea has time to watch tape and improve in areas of concern. Among those concerns are pitchers maintaining their control and batters limiting their strikeouts. Both problems have lost games this season, especially on the road. Arizona is worst in the Pac-12 conference with 185 walks allowed and second-worst in strikeouts, striking out 165 times on offense this season. Candrea said the team will work this week to improve some of those problem areas. “We’re trying to recreate some competition, so we’re doing some live at-bats the next three days, a little scrimmage on Friday,” Candrea said. “Then take a couple days off and come back for a mid-week game.” Regardless of what the team works on this week, it’s obvious that players and coaches alike are happy for the downtime. “It’s kind of nice, I haven’t had a weekend with my
STAFF PICKS Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Los Angeles Dodgers The Dodgers are the second-best team in NL West, and the Diamondbacks are fifth, after enduring pitching injuries. The Dodgers scored twice as many runs against the Diamondbacks in the three-game sweep. Be prepared for more of that. Dodgers 3 games, Diamondbacks 0 Los Angeles Angels vs. Detroit Tigers Detroit’s strong rotation and consistent offense will be huge factors. While the Angels are fresh off a hard-earned win against the first-place Athletics, Detroit will likely prove too tough of a matchup for Los Angeles.

family, and it’s nice that it’s during Easter weekend,” senior pitcher Estela Piñon said. “I know a lot of the girls are excited to go back home and have a little bit of time for themselves.” Next week the Wildcats play a doubleheader against New Mexico State at home in their last non-conference action. Arizona will then host Utah for a Pac-12 series. Arizona will play five games in five days, starting on Wednesday.

Arizona baseball vs. USC UA baseball was in a slump last month, going 6-15, but the Wildcats improved in April. The team has taken two Pac-12 series in a row and a non-conference win from ASU. With this turnaround, the UA should be victorious against the Trojans. Arizona 2 games, USC 1 Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Los Angeles Dodgers The Diamondbacks have the worst record in all of MLB (4-14), and continue to butcher their first month of the season. Last weekend, the Dodgers swept Arizona in Phoenix. Frenzied Dodgers fans should forget the Puig scandal and go out to support the young phenom. Dodgers 3 games, Diamondbacks 0 Los Angeles Angels vs. Detroit Tigers The Detroit and Angels series could really go both ways. Both teams are almost even with wins and losses this season and the Tigers have been surprisingly unpredictable. Could it be the result of new management or the loss of so many long-time Tigers players? Whatever the reason, I wouldn’t panic so early on in the season. Tigers 2 games, Angels 1

game looked like it was designed by Ronald McDonald. Then a few days ago, Stanley Johnson helped lead the Americans to a win over the World Select Team in the Nike Hoop Summit. Stanley Johnson scored seven points but — more importantly to Arizona fans — was 5-for-7 from the free throw line. Gordon was hardly automatic from the charity stripe, while Nick Johnson was supremely clutch from the free throw line. Nick Johnson won Arizona games because of his free throw shooting, like when he made six free throws in the final 25
seconds to win at Michigan and was 10-for-10 in his free throw attempts in the Wildcats’ Sweet Sixteen win over San Diego State. While Stanley Johnson is capable of impressive highlights — NBA Draft Express said the 6-foot7, 17-year-old has a 6-foot-11 wingspan — UA fans might want to watch the Jordan Brand Classic to see him shoot free throws. With Nick Johnson and Gordon gone, Stanley Johnson is a natural fit at the two guard. While Stanley Johnson is mostly listed as a small forward, he’s ranked as the No. 1 three by ESPN and No. 2 by Scout. He can certainly handle the ball well enough to play the two. Arizona’s likely 2014-15 lineup of
junior Kaleb Tarczewski or newly signed Serbian center Dusan Ristic, junior Brandon Ashley, sophomore Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Stanley Johnson and senior T.J. McConnell will be enough to lead the Wildcats to the top of the polls again. If Zeus holds off the Serbian import and hangs on to his starting spot, then “Stan the Man” is the only likely starter Arizona fans are unfamiliar with. A dose of ESPN’s No. 7 recruit is just what the doctor ordered for ailing Arizona fans.

Arizona Baseball vs. USC Arizona is coming off of back-to-back wins against UCLA and is three games under .500. The Wildcats could get there if they sweep the Trojans this weekend. With the added incentive of ending the season strong, the Wildcats take this series. Arizona 2 games, USC 1 Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Los Angeles Dodgers The Diamondbacks are currently on a six-game losing streak, and it will be longer after this weekend. The Dodgers have the better lineup and better pitching rotation. The Diamondbacks can only hope to keep it close and steal a game. Dodgers 2 games, Diamondbacks 1 Anaheim Angels vs. Detroit Tigers The Tigers are on the road this weekend and will have Max Scherzer on the mound Saturday. With a winning pitcher in Scherzer and the best hitter in the league batting, this should be an easy series to win. Tigers 2 games, Angels 1

Arizona women’s tennis will host archrival ASU this Saturday in its last home match of the season. Four seniors will take the court at LaNelle Robson Tennis Center for the last time: Lacey Smyth, Kim Stubbe, Susan Mc Rann and Akilah James. Smyth is ranked No. 58 in singles play. No. 31 Arizona’s senior day match against No. 22 ASU will start at 1 p.m. and is a redout. The Wildcats trail the Sun Devils 7.5-6 in the Territorial Cup Series competition between the schools’ athletic departments. The seniors have built up a solid foundation at Arizona. They have gone 5635 in four seasons, and 41-6 mark at home. James transferred to the UA from South Carolina State in 2012. The seniors have made it to the NCAA Tournament twice, including a second round appearance in 2012, one of the best finishes in school history. Arizona men’s tennis will host No. 53 Utah this Friday for the last match of the season as well. For senior tennis players Mario Urquidi and Kieren Thompson, this will be the last time they compete on the home court as Wildcats.
Head coach Tad Berkowitz said they are leaders in their own ways. “Kieren is our vocal guy; he’s the one who speaks when he feels the team needs to get something going,” Berkowitz said. “He knows when it is time to pump the guys up and when to get a little tough on the guys as well.” Last year Thompson was Arizona’s winningest player, and this season Urquidi has won three of his last four matches. “Mario brings the energy with his work ethic every single day,” Berkowitz said. “It doesn’t matter if his ankle is hurting him or if he has a test the next day. He has always been that ‘blue collar workhorse’ for us.” Urquidi said he and Thompson have tried to be leaders in the classroom as well. “We are not only seen as guys who the team can look up to on the court, but the guys who the team can look up to inside the classroom,” Urquidi said. “We are trying to build a legacy and put the team on a good path after we are gone.” Including those from both men’s and women’s tennis, Arizona will be saluting six seniors this weekend.
