Hotel plans stir controversy BY MADISON BRODSKY The Daily Wildcat
A local architect and members of a historic zone advisory board are at odds about a proposal to build a hotel near the UA. Tucson Mayor and Council is set to decide on the proposal this summer. The hotel would be built where three historical buildings currently stand, in the West University Neighborhood near Fourth Street and Euclid Avenue. Steve Kozachik, city councilman for Ward 6, said the City Council has not yet seen any financial plans or design review for the hotel. The three historic student housing
Students share on border deaths
buildings, which were nationally recognized as a unique district series of homes built in the 1900s, are considered to be part of one of the first suburbs in the Tucson community, said Val Little, a member of the City of Tucson West University Historic Zone Advisory Board. Little said the request for this type of redevelopment is not unusual. “We come across proposals that ask for high-rise development in place of low one- or two-story apartments on a daily basis,” Little said, “but it is our job to prevent [Tucson] from being destroyed little by little and protect this district’s historical importance.”

The OASIS Program held Take Back the Night on Tuesday to raise awareness about sexual assault
BY HANNAH PLOTKIN The Daily Wildcat
UA students who work to identify remains found along the U.S.Mexico border cited domestic policies as a cause of migrant deaths in a conference on Tuesday. The students presenting at the Honors College shared their experiences working as interns at the Colibrí Center for Human Rights, a nonprofit that helps families locate loved ones who have gone missing while crossing through the Sonoran Desert into the U.S. Dana Dobbins, a philosophy, politics, economics and law senior, said a large cause of undocumented migration is global economic change. She said there is now an increased need for labor, and therefore labor mobility, but inadequate channels for legal economic migration. Dobbins cited the North American Free Trade Agreement as having had a large impact on the U.S. and Mexico. From 1995 to 2010, Mexico lost thousands of jobs as a result of American farm subsidies. In Mexico, half the population lives at poverty level, and one-fifth of the people live in extreme poverty, Dobbins said. She added that the job market and economic growth in Mexico are weak, likely also causes for undocumented migration. Alejandro Sustaita, a physiology senior, said that when NAFTA was formed, it was claimed that Mexico’s economy would improve to the point that illegal entry into the U.S. would be eliminated. U.S. border policies maximize the rate and risk of apprehension of migrants, Sustaita said. The focused militarization of the border forces immigrants into more hostile environments in order to cross, he added, increasing both the cost of patrolling the border and immigrant deaths from exposure. “Many successful border crossers can suffer from severe up to permanent physical and emotional trauma,” Sustaita said. The increased difficulty of crossing has a rise in the use of coyotes, people who smuggle people across the border, he said. These coyotes are often associated with organized crime, according to Sustaita, and as a result, immigrants are more exposed to extortion, kidnappings and sexual violence. Despite the high costs, in both money and deaths, border militarization does not deter migrants, he said. According to Sustaita, 92 to 95 percent of Mexicans who cross the border are successful. “Basically, what it does is it reassures the public that strong action is being taken to protect them against the so-called immigration crisis, the war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on you-name-it,” he said.

With Mercury in Taurus, edit your communications this month for solid impact. Plan, prepare and research before presenting. Private actions close to home on existing projects get farther.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today is a 5 — It’s easier to express your love for a month with Mercury in Taurus. Plant seeds hidden in messages. Proceed with caution today, despite chaos.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Today is a 5 — With Mercury in Taurus for a month, have your home express what you love. Resist the temptation to over-spend. Reschedule travel and new project launches. Work quietly to complete a job, to minimize conflict. Rest and recharge, while assimilating new changes. Take it easy.
What is your favorite thing about the university? I love how open it is and how it doesn’t feel desert-y. I like the atmosphere, like the grass and the palm trees.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 5 — Consider the impact of your words before speaking, with Mercury in Taurus for a month. Ground arguments in fact. Avoid conflict today by keeping a low profile. Slow the pace, and anticipate resistance. Use discretion. Stay off the roads. Use extra care with tools.
What are you doing this summer? I’ll be taking summer classes and working. What do you have planned for next semester? I’m actually not coming back. I’m moving to Florida, and I’m getting married in September, so I’ll be going to the University of North Florida and applying to nursing school there.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is a 5 — It’s all about action today (with a Grand Cross in cardinal signs), but the one who initiates loses. Test before pushing ahead. It could get tense. Watch your step! Mercury enters Taurus, beginning a phase of pruning, trimming and adjusting. Clear out old branches for new growth.

Kozachik said he thinks the council has to sit down with the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation and with the West University Neighborhood Association to talk about the possibilities of designing a hotel in a way that preserves the historic properties rather than demolishing them. “[The developers] got a real significant uphill battle on this one from the standpoint of process if they’re going to come in and propose that they’re going to demolish any or all of those homes,” Kozachik said. Bob Vint, architect of the hotel and owner of Vint and Associates Architects, Inc., said the properties are so rundown that it would probably cost more to fix them than to replace them. “Tucson has some unfortunately old, rundown student housing properties dating back to the 1930s,” Vint said. “I am usually very respectful when it comes to historical properties, but you can’t save every building, because then the land would become too cluttered and this [property] isn’t being used for anything significant.” The board wants to protect Tucson’s historic landmarks, not only for the people who live and work in the city, but also for the amenities the buildings provide for the community, Little said. Designated historic neighborhoods get a discount in property taxes, but the neighborhood must maintain a certain percentage of historic properties in order to keep the designation, Kozachik said. The proposed location for the hotel is ideal because it would be next to a four-way street, near Tyndall Avenue Parking Garage, Vint said, and it’s also next door to a neighborhood, so residents could conveniently have their guests stay at a nearby hotel. It is also economically favorable due to its proximity to the Sun Link Tucson Streetcar, which could provide transportation for hotel guests, he added. While the buildings are probably important to some people, Vint added, he hopes people will also become attached to the hotel if the proposal passes. “Tucson needs to continue to grow and change,” Vint said. “It is not 1935 anymore; everything around these buildings [has] changed, and now it’s time to improve.” — Stephanie Casanova contributed reporting to this article

Class showcases streetcar plan said PTS is planning to allow Sun Link passes to be charged to bursar’s accounts. Richard Miranda, manager for the City of Tucson, said he was happy to see the progress that has been made on the streetcar. “To see it go from a lunchtime cocktail napkin to a presentation on marketing is really a dream come true,” Miranda said. Rothschild said he was thrilled when the opportunity arose for students to help market the streetcar, as they are the target audience of promotional efforts. He said he appreciated the students’ efforts to market a product they couldn’t physically sell and said he enjoyed the presentation. “You should all get A’s, because you’ve sold me,” Rothschild said. Shanna Winer, a marketing senior and public relations director for the class, said she enjoyed the real-world experience the class offered her through working with the streetcar. “It’s cool to be part of a startup, even though we won’t be here to see the results,” she said.

A UA class gave its final presentation to local political and business leaders on the marketing campaign it developed for the Sun Link Tucson Streetcar on Tuesday. Integrated Marketing Communications, Marketing 452, presented its progress on marketing the streetcar and made recommendations for improving the promotion of the project to Tucson Mayor Jonathon Rothschild and others in the Eller College of Management. The class has partnered with the City of Tucson for the entire semester to run the marketing campaign on campus, said Jordan Griffith, a marketing senior and marketing director for the class. Many of the city, business and UA leaders in attendance for the presentation had met with the class previously, Griffith added. “Most of the people that were in here,” Griffith said. “They came in and spoke to us at the beginning of the semester. They let us know what the streetcar meant to their organization, and we used that in our marketing plan.” The directors of the class, led by Jake Storer, a marketing senior, reported on the progress the class of 69 students

made throughout the year. Storer said the main challenge was that the class didn’t have a tangible product to sell, so they couldn’t know how many people were actually buying their product. The class held events throughout the semester to promote the streetcar to students on campus. These events included a bake sale to raise funds and a large promotional event on the UA Mall. The large promotional event on the Mall, for Sun Link SunSation, took place last week and featured free food and games to make sure students
knew the streetcar was available to them, Griffith said. The class also made recommendations on how best to reach the target audience: UA students. One of the most valuable suggestions was to allow students to pay for a Sun Link pass through their bursar’s account, Griffith said. “That was the first thing we said — this needs to be bursared,” Griffith said. “That’s where you’re going to get your revenues, because students like to bursar stuff.” David Heineking, director of Parking and Transportation Services,

Students who ‘just get by’ will be sorry
BY Maura Higgs The Daily Wildcat
hile it certainly feels as though school is all about what it takes to get an A — or even just to pass — life after college will require us to do more than just get by. When it comes down to it, employers and other people you’ll try to impress over the course of your life are looking for certain skills and abilities — they aren’t always concerned with your GPA. Forbes reported that employers want to see that you can work in a team setting, problem solve, prioritize and communicate effectively. The best time to be developing those skills is now, while we are still in college and trying to make our own paths in the world. Cramming information into your head for an exam the next day just to dump it later is not a skill. In The New York Times article “In Head-Hunting, Big Data May Not Be Such a Big Deal,” Adam Bryant interviewed Laszlo Bock, the senior vice president of people operations at Google. Bock discussed how statistics do not always help companies hire a better work environment full of intelligent, competent people. They have learned that a GPA from college is not an accurate indicator of whether you will succeed at work. Academia has a standardized environment in which you can become conditioned to do better, but it’s too predictable. As college students, we should be learning to be adaptable, but if we are in a stagnant environment, that can be difficult. Some of the skills employers look for, such as time management, are definitely improved by the college experience, and a great GPA can be beneficial when job hunting; but if you manage to earn a great GPA without developing any problem solving skills, you cannot be expected to do well outside of the academic bubble we currently reside in. While college challenges us in certain ways, the academic bubble can also be comforting. It creates a formula we must follow to do well and allows us to focus on how to get through it with little effort. Thomas L. Friedman wrote a pair of articles for The New York Times on “How to Get a Job at Google” that further address this issue. We cannot just blindly walk through college; we need to be present and learn everything there is to learn. The ability to sit in class and absorb just enough to get an “A” should not be admired or praised. The people who work hard and know how to prioritize and work smart should be praised. Some students learn these lessons outside of academia. A U.S. Census Bureau report found that 72 percent of undergraduates and 82 percent of graduate students had a job while in school, which is one way to gain extra experience. Our system of grades and working for every last point does not necessarily guarantee a good work ethic, so we either have to treat our learning in a different way or gain those skills elsewhere. A college education is important as long as you get out of it not only a great education, but also the important life skills required for the job market. The classroom is not the only way to do that. Recognizing that learning and growth can and need to happen outside of the classroom is the first step. What we do about going further is what will set us apart when it comes time to find a job.

Country music ignores issues in South, but has musical value the South. So why must country music have this tunnel-vision obsession with all things Southern? Why can’t anybody write a good country song about how awesome it is to be from Indiana? Somebody get Ron Swanson on that. Maybe the fact that many country singers are not from the South contribute to the way country videos and lyrics idealize life in that region. Tim McGraw sings about the superiority of Southern girls in a song appropriately titled “Southern Girl.” Brad Paisley sings about being reluctant to leave his “Southern Comfort Zone.” Country music videos feature a bunch of good-looking, physically-fit young men and women who seem unburdened by jobs and obligation; they spend most of their time outside participating in recreational activities and flirting with each other. The reality of the South, of course, is far different from this image. Mississippi has the highest obesity rates in the country. Mississippi and Alabama ranked as the top two states in infant mortality rates as of 2010. Then there is the minor issue of a history featuring slavery, sharecropping, segregation, poverty, political corruption and economic backwardness. When you consider those facts, the South seems a bit less awesome than country singers claim it is. Now, I’m not here to pick a fight with the South. I enjoy college football and barbecue at least as much as the next guy, and our country has enough problems right now without me starting another Civil War. I have no problem with people being proud of where they’re from, even if they’re from south of the Mason-Dixon line. I’m just saying some of these country singers are laying on the Southern pride thing a little bit too thick, y’all.
song advocating smoking pot (Kacey Musgraves), it’s apparent that country music today does not always follow cultural and political stereotypes. Then again, there are other formulaic songs that still seem to be checking off a laundry list of BY Logan Rogers red-state stereotypes: small towns, pickup trucks, The Daily Wildcat church, front porches, domestic beer, etc. So, although I’ve grown to like some country music, there are still some things that bug me n the last couple of years, I’ve been listening about it. For one thing, the cowboy hat is a to more country music. Maybe the fact that Western fashion that country singers from the I moved from pretentious and sophisticated Southeast stole from the Southwest in order Northern California to the dusty country town of to look cool, despite the fact that there’s more Tucson — which is pretty far south even if not in cattle ranching in Arizona and “The South” — is to blame.

Your Views From “‘The Vagina Monologues’ bring feminist advocacy on stage” (by Ashley Reid, April 18) The spelling is “Ensler,” not “Endler.” Also, the story quotes, “There is a whole culture and guilt around women’s sexuality.” Really? You could have fooled me. Especially the way I see men shamed for their sexuality. Men’s sexuality is treated in society as a pathology. Men are accused of “thinking with their penis,” “small dick syndrome” (when they purchase a sports car), using their dicks as “weapons.” I see NO place in society where men are taught that their sexuality is to be embraced, is a wonderful part of being human. I see it shamed and degraded everywhere I go.
In contrast, I see women’s sexuality praised and glorified, practically worshiped. “Sex and the City.” “Bridges of Madison County” (an unfulfilled woman has every “right” to be unfaithful). Et cetera. The entire beauty/makeup/clothing industry is all about enhancing/ drawing attention to women’s sexuality and sexual power. Those that want to embrace victimhood will be able to identify with this warped play. Women who are already confident in their being and in their sexuality will have no use for it. — Matthew Chapman It’s irresponsible and dishonest yellow journalism to neglect to mention this play makes light of an act of statutory

rape committed by a lesbian. Those who are the victim of such a heinous crime or those with high standards should not be misled into watching something that may offend or upset them. Also, a balanced article would talk about the controversy and criticisms this play has received, including from feminists. — Concerned reader From “Off-the-grid fad is way off base” (by Mackenzie Brown, April 21) That’s a really nice assumption that people who largely abandon society do so in an attempt to make a statement. Or that it’s ideologically driven. And we all know what making assumptions makes us! Some of us just prefer having way less neighbors, yet way more true friends, where we’ve got room to run our own livestock and grow our own food. I never considered making some environmental statement when I moved where my closest neighbor was a half mile away.
My family just likes taking care of our own land, animals and food. We enjoy the challenge of needing less from society to survive, and spending drastically less to live than anyone in the city.

BY Adriana Espinosa The Daily Wildcat
Everybody’s doing it
A UA student was arrested for minor in possession of alcohol on Sunday at around 4 a.m. on Seventh Street and Cherry Avenue. A University of Arizona Police Department officer was patrolling the area when he saw a student and a man screaming at each other. The officer pulled over and attempted to separate the two. The man was yelling, “Get away from me! Get this crazy bitch away from me! She won’t go away.” Two other officers arrived on the scene to assist. The student and the man had supposedly been arguing about the student’s friends, and the student said she was “trying to protect them.” The student’s eyes were watery and bloodshot, and she was slurring her words. The student asked why the officers were there and what she had done. An officer asked her what she thought she was in trouble for, and she replied, “Drinking, big deal. Everybody in the party is [drinking], and they are drunk.” The officer told her she was going to be arrested for underage drinking and they were going to get her home safely. However, while completing the paperwork for her citation, the student refused to sign the ticket multiple times. The officers told her if she did not sign it, she would be booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Center. When she continued to refuse to sign it, she was arrested and booked into the detention center.
A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and spirituous liquor. A UAPD officer was doing rounds with a resident assistant at Colonia de la Paz Residence Hall when they noticed a strong smell of burnt marijuana on the second floor. A student answered the door of the room the smell was coming from. He said he did not have marijuana in his room but had just finished smoking with his friend in his car. The officer asked if they could search the room, and the student said yes. While searching the room, the officer found three bottles of beer, a mason jar filled with marijuana and a pipe. The student admitted they were his and said he had lied earlier because he was afraid he would get in trouble. He added that he had just finished smoking in his room. Officers disposed of the alcohol and confiscated the marijuana and pipe as evidence. The student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office.

A UAPD officer noticed about 15 people congregating around an entrance to a fraternity house on Cherry Avenue at approximately 3 a.m. on Friday. The house seemed noisy, suggesting there were a lot of people inside. The officer checked the Greek Life calendar of events, and saw there was not a registered party at that address or time. The officer tried to get in contact with someone at the house, but when the people saw the officer, they all ran quickly into the house to avoid him. He then began to shine his light inside the house and saw about 100 people in a room. When they saw the light, all the people consuming alcohol either dropped or tried to hide it from the officer. The crowd then began to retreat to a different part of the house that was out of sight. The officer found a resident of the house and asked for the president of the fraternity to come outside and speak with him. The president came to speak with the officer and told him there were about 86 people in the house. The officer told the president of the house that there appeared to be underage drinking going on and that it appeared to be a violation of GAMMA rules. The president told the officer he would tell everyone to leave. Shortly after, about 200 people left the house. The officer contacted Greek Life to report the incident.

‘Unknown Known’ informative, leftist BY KEVIN REAGAN The Daily Wildcat
he number of times Donald Rumsfeld impulsively smiles in the new documentary “The Unknown Known” will surely astound you, especially since about 90 percent of the film is a discussion on terrorism, torture and the casualties of war. It’s this type of evasive persona that filmmaker Errol Morris objectively explores while interviewing the former Secretary of Defense like he’s under interrogation for his job performance during the George W. Bush administration. The 90-minute interview is narrated and sequenced by Rumsfeld reading aloud sections of the more than 1,000 memos he drafted during his time at the Department of Defense. It’s a clever strategy by Morris to force Rumsfeld out of his comfort zone and confront his involvement with America’s invasion of Iraq. Rumsfeld jumbles his words as he struggles to answer Morris’ questions eloquently, and he soon finds himself in a sinking ship of language, text and double meanings. Viewers looking for Rumsfeld to admit his complicity will be disappointed by the subject’s suave ability to avoid answering any of Morris’ questions directly. The film quickly becomes less about prosecuting Rumsfeld and more about parading his cartoonish exterior. It seems like Morris takes delight in showcasing the contradictions Rumsfeld makes in his statements. One sequence has Morris asking Rumsfeld about the confusion Americans had with the link between Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. Rumsfeld nervously dances around the question, and then Morris cuts to a press conference in 2002 in which Rumsfeld boldly confirms the correlation between Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s embarrassing errors like this that make this documentary an open buffet for the more liberalminded. Morris makes no political apologies in identifying the fallacies of the Bush administration, which he does convincingly by highlighting
Rumsfeld’s tactic of hiding behind paradoxical semantics. The title of the film itself alludes to a philosophy dictated by Rumsfeld that explains the complexity of national security. According to Rumsfeld, there are four categories of intelligence; the “unknown knowns” are the facts one thinks are known but actually aren’t. Rumsfeld’s rhetoric disappears into a cyclical abyss along with all the other promises, secrets and talking points of this finely tuned politician. Morris covers Rumsfeld’s history all the way back to his days as a congressman in the early ’60s, and up through when he was a final candidate to be Ronald Reagan’s vice president in 1981. In between these two points is a peculiar side story of Rumsfeld’s plausible involvement with the Watergate scandal; Richard Nixon admitted to distrusting the then-Counsellor to the President. Morris’ style of documentary filmmaking is a mash-up of archive footage, abstract metaphors and elaborate re-dramatizations. His narrative attempts to revitalize history through the Aristotelian model of the flawed protagonist. Rumsfeld is dramatized as a victim of hubris, and he only scratches the surface of his journey to salvation when he discusses his decision to resign as Secretary of Defense in 2006. Morris should be given credit for humanizing a political figure who seems to instinctively hide behind a façade of manic ambivalence. By the end of the film, the only thing Morris wants us to know for sure about Rumsfeld is that the man himself really does not know anything. Republicans are advised to stay away from this feature, as it will definitely make them reconsider their votes for Bush in 2000 and 2004. Those looking to better understand the faulty individuals behind big government decisions are encouraged to see a screening of “The Unknown Known” at The Loft Cinema, where it will be playing through Thursday.

GROUPLOVE WILL perform at the Rialto Theatre on Thursday night. The band will play its hit song “Colours” and show off its signature bubbly, indie-pop sound.
BY CHRISTIANNA SILVA The Daily Wildcat
For those who aren’t yet acquainted with Grouplove, NME says that Grouplove is what Arcade Fire would have “sounded like if no-one had ever died.” The band finds fans gravitating toward its unique part punk-rock, part techno-pop sound. And its lyrics, like “I’d rather be a hippie than a hipster,” hit home with millennials across the world. Grouplove will take the stage at the Rialto Theatre on Thursday at 8 p.m. The U.S.-based band was formed in 2009 in Greece. Hannah Hooper, Christian Zucconi , Sean Gadd, Andrew Wessen and Ryan Rabin make up the band. With all of the band’s members — sans its drummer, Ryan Rabin — filling in vocals, its sound is a clearly well-rounded one. With Hooper on keys, Zucconi and Wessen on guitar and Gadd on bass, they created “Ways to Go,” a song from their new album, Spreading Rumours, that has over 5 million views on YouTube. They do a unique job of mashing a tune that makes the listener happily think back to that sunny day on the swing set, with lyrics that remind us
we all, inevitably, have to leave band members all write songs the playground. That mixture of together, each musician giving elation and melancholy, is a trait their own input, Ryan Rabin said that Grouplove brings into many that “the variety in the musical taste and writing styles of each of its songs.

lectrofunk duo Chromeo performed Saturday at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe, Ariz. Tokimonsta, an electronic music producer and disc jockey, opened up the show for Chromeo. Her performance was captivating, but did not resemble her typical sound. I attribute this to the fact that she was opening for a more mainstream artist. My personal favorite track of Tokimonsta’s is “Darkest (Dim),” but, unfortunately, she did not play it on Saturday. Her set mostly revolved around her newest album, titled Half Shadows, which I recommend you check out. Once Tokimonsta finished performing, the Marquee Theatre began to reach capacity, and the crowd began chanting “Chro-me-o.” The audience was lively and ready to dance. After watching David Macklovitch and Patrick Gemayel perform, I now understand why they are referred to as the funk lords. Yes, their recordings are funky, but I did not realize the extent of the funk until seeing them live. I was very impressed by the stage setup; the duo was surrounded by mirrors and bright lights on all sides. My favorite touch was the mannequin legs that their instruments sat atop of. From where I was standing, the mannequin legs appeared to be David and Patrick’s legs. I caught myself chuckling multiple times at the sight of the two artists with such slender legs.
The duo had great chemistry from start to finish. It’s no surprise that Chromeo originated from a childhood friendship. Often, they let loose on their instruments and leaned into one another back-toback, completely present in the moment. David was the main attraction of the performance, with his dreamy black curls and shining smile. I heard a number of young women squeal as David pointed toward them. And putting David’s innate charm aside, whenever Patrick stepped forth to address the crowd, everyone went wild. Patrick has a quiet confidence about him because, let’s face it, David’s guitar and vocals wouldn’t be much on their own. After the two artists said goodbye to Phoenix and left the stage, the crowd began chanting “Chro-me-o” once more. The duo soon returned for a three-song encore. In this encore, they debuted a new song, heavier on the electronic than the funk, and the crowd was down. Perhaps this stronger electronic influence has something to do with the fact that A-Trak of Duck Sauce is David’s younger brother. After the encore, we all wanted more, and, yes, I listened to Chromeo on the drive home from the venue. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the performance, and if you ever have the chance to see Tokimonsta or Chromeo, do not pass it up.

SOFTBALL PAC-12 POWER RANKINGS
Rugby goes to big dance Ducks, Bruins reach 40 wins BY ROBERTO PAYNE
BY DANIELA VIZCARRA
Wildcat men’s rugby head coach Sean Duffy is headed to nationals again — but this time with Arizona. The first-year UA rugby coach, who replaced Dave Sitton, is leading Arizona to the 2013-14 Emirates Airline USA Rugby College National Championship this weekend in Stanford, Calif. The top 16 rugby teams in the nation will compete there for USA Rugby’s Collegiate National Championship title. Arizona will be competing in the Western Regional Playoffs this weekend against Long Beach State. “All we are focused on right now is getting the win from Long Beach,” Duffy said. “We’ll worry about the rest of the matchups when that time comes.” During the playoffs last year, Long Beach State knocked the Wildcats out in the first round. Last year, Duffy led his team, the St. Joseph’s Hawks, to the Collegiate Rugby Championships for the first time. “We seem to be getting better and growing as a team,” Duffy said. “This improvement could not have come at a better time.” The Wildcats are currently 4-4 and won their last three games of the season against ASU, Notre Dame and Oregon State. If the Wildcats beat Long Beach State, they will play Oregon or Stanford from the Western region in the second round of playoffs. If the Wildcats win the Western Region title, they will play the winner of the Midwest Region. The semifinals will begin May 10 and conclude with the finals May 11 at Stanford.

No. 12 Arizona men’s lacrosse will begin its journey to the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association National Championships this weekend. Saturday, the Laxcats will have their first SLC playoff game, against No. 9
1. Oregon (40-5, 14-1 Pac-12 Conference) A dominating three-game series over California makes Oregon the first team in the conference to win 40 games. At this rate, the Ducks might not lose for the rest of the regular season.
6. Cal (22-20, 4-9) It wasn’t long ago when Cal was atop the conference standings, but the Golden Bears have lost nine of their last 11 games and have UCLA on the schedule this week. There’s a good chance Cal drops below .500 after this weekend.
2. UCLA Bruins (41-4, 12-3) UCLA needed a strong week, and in five games, it got just that. Uncharacteristic pitching woes didn’t stop the Bruins from winning all five games and becoming the second Pac-12 team to reach the 40-wins plateau.
7. Stanford (26-18, 3-12) Stanford had a perfect chance to reverse its recent woes last weekend, but lost two of three against lowly Utah. The Cardinal now has the second-worst Pac-12 record and plays Oregon this weekend.
3. ASU (39-7, 13-4) ASU drops one in the Pac-12 power rankings after playing only two games over the weekend. The Sun Devils have a relatively easy week before going against the No. 1 Oregon Ducks next week.
8. Utah (23-21, 5-12) The Utes won four games in the past week to finally get above the .500 mark this season. However, Utah has a tough away series against Arizona this week and could see its record drop below .500 again.
4. Arizona (34-9, 9-6) DEVIN MEANS/THE DAILY WILDCAT
ARIZONA BEAT ASU 51-38 at William David Sitton Field on March 29, the first in a three-game win streak after which the Wildcats qualified for the national tournament.
Santa Barbara. The Laxcats (10-5) secured a spot in the playoffs after San Diego State defeated San Diego for the final two slots in the Division I semifinals. “We’ve had a great season and we’ve had some solid, crisp practices for our upcoming matchups,” head coach Derek Pedrick said. If the Laxcats win the semifinals game, they could potentially play ASU in the final four. “It would be nice to play ASU in the final four and get that win from them in the postseason,” Pedrick said.

SOFTBALL FROM PAGE 10
Leading the offensive charge are three Arizona batters with double-digit home runs: redshirt junior shortstop Kellie Fox (12), freshman right fielder Katiyana Mauga (15) and junior catcher Chelsea Goodacre (16).
9. Oregon State (13-26, 3-13) The Beavers have lost eight of their last nine games and just can’t seem to catch a break, as Washington is next on the schedule. OSU would have to win seven of its remaining 10 games just to get to the 20-win plateau.
To put that power into perspective, the trio has combined for more home runs (43) than the total home runs numbers for five other Pac-12 teams. The ability to change a game in one swing has jump-started an offense that prefers to put away games early. Getting that early lead is even more important when the double-

header is taken into account. With eight of Arizona’s remaining 11 games at home, getting early leads could provide the confidence the team needs to earn a perfect home record.

UA is home for diverse golf team BY FERNANDO GALVAN The Daily Wildcat
All universities have their selling points. For some, it’s the location; for others, it might be the facilities. Here at the UA, for golf, it’s the family. Wildcat women’s golf features players from Australia, France, Spain, California, Oregon and Arizona. Each has her own reasons for coming to the UA, but they were all able to agree on one thing that brought them here: how comfortable they felt in Tucson. “The feeling I got when I came here was a sense of home, and a sense that they care just as equally about the golfers as they do any other sport,” freshman Jessica Vasilic said. “It was a feeling of acceptance.” When members of the team shared experiences of their recruiting visits to the UA campus, they described a feeling of genuine care and concern that came from not only the coaching staff, but everyone involved with the team. “All the athletes are very familyoriented, and the coaches make it feel like home,” sophomore Lindsey Weaver said. “It’s so welcoming. The team is so welcoming. We all get along great.” Head coach Laura Ianello said she is proud of the UA’s welcoming environement. “We take a huge part of these ladies’ lives,” Ianello said. “We’re not just their golf coaches; we truly care about them as people. We truly invest ourselves, our lives, into their lives ’cause we want them to succeed not just on the golf course, but in the classroom and in their personal lives.” Ianello’s philosophy has its origins in the time she spent at the UA as a student-athlete from 19982003. “I remember my coaching staff, Greg Allen and Jody Dansie,” Ianello said. “When I was here, they made it a family.” This sense of family can be necessary when dealing with so many student-athletes that are far from home. Junior Andrea Vilarasau is from Spain and said she was not interested in studying abroad until she had the opportunity to meet Ianello and visit the UA campus. “[Ianello] made me feel comfortable, and made me feel like I was going to have my temporary home here,” Vilarasau said. Now that Vilarasau is a junior, she is able to help other international players with the adjustment to college life and life in the U.S. The high number of international players creates a lot of learning opportunities for each of the team members. “We are definitely a cultured team,” Vasilic said. “We as people will grow because we’re being exposed to so many different things.” It is these kind of experiences that will help Ianello reach her goal of ensuring that those on her team become not only better players under her watch, but also better people. “It’s so wonderful for these ladies to look outside the box and realize that there’s more people than just from what they came from,” Ianello said. “There’s great people all over the world, and it’s good to open your heart and become friends with different cultures to build a family unit.”

UA hosts double dip After off-time over Easter weekend, the No. 9 Arizona softball team returns to action today in a double-header against the New Mexico State Aggies (26-19). The two games are scheduled to take place at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. at Hillenbrand Stadium and will be streamed live on pac-12.com. Arizona (34-9, 9-6 Pac-12 Conference) is undefeated at home and has won six of its last seven games. The Wildcats are scoring 9.1 runs per game over that span, which is 1.3 runs per game more than their season average. Continuing that offensive outburst has been a topic of discussion for Arizona head coach Mike Candrea as the matchup with New Mexico State approaches. Candrea’s squad used its 10 days’ rest to improve on some areas, like strikeouts, that had plagued the team in recent losses. Despite playing in the Western Athletic Conference,

TORONTO EVENS SERIES
Arizona’s bats have been offensive
BY ROBERTO PAYNE
New Mexico State has a quality pitching staff, and its 26 wins cannot be ignored. The Aggies have a solid team ERA of 3.59 and don’t rely on any one pitcher to get outs. Three of their four pitchers have pitched at least 88 innings, with Karysta Donisthorpe leading the way with 97.1 innings pitched. That kind of parity doesn’t exist at Arizona, where only one pitcher has pitched over 60 innings. The Wildcats rely heavily on senior Estela Piñon, and rightfully so. Piñon leads the team in wins, appearances, games started, innings pitched and strikeouts. Having a pitcher of her quality certainly permits Candrea to lean heavily on her, rather than having the parity of New Mexico State. For as much success as Piñon and company have had on the mound, the aforementioned offense might be even better. New Mexico State will need every bit of pitching it can get to hold back an Arizona team that has almost as many runs (336) as hits (386).
