An inquiry into the actions of Tucson Police Department officers in a conflict between police and a crowd of civilians on March 29 following the UA’s loss in the NCAA Elite Eight men’s basketball game was released on June 30. The inquiry found police action justified overall. A report produced by the TPD Board of Inquiry using video footage from bodyworn cameras on police officers, a walkthrough and third-party video footage concluded that the majority of actions taken by TPD officers on the scene were appropriate. “[TPD officers displayed] a great deal of self restraint ... in their dealings with a hostile and antagonizing crowd,” the report said. The board also found that actions from an individual officer, Sgt. Joel Mann, whose videotaped actions went viral in the days following the incident, were inappropriate. Mann was filmed pushing a woman over a bench without apparent provocation on the night of March 29. An Office of Internal Affairs investigation of Mann found his use of force on three individuals in two separate incidents in the evening to be inappropriate. The board’s findings were given to Mann’s chain of command for further action. The Arizona Department of Public Safety’s Criminal Investigations Division, Special Investigations Unit are conducting a criminal review of both incidents involving Mann. Additionally, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating Mann for any violations of civil rights. The OIA also conducted an investigation regarding a complaint against an unnamed officer by a civilian injured by less-lethal chemical munitions. Through the use of

UA to cut AZPM funding in future by Meredith Morrissey
Arizona Summer Wildcat
The UA announced it is cutting funds for Arizona Public Media by $2 million over the next five years. AZPM is the local Public Broadcasting Service and National Public Radio affiliate. It has an annual budget of $11.7 million, a quarter of which is provided by the UA. Starting July 1, the UA’s financial contribution to AZPM will be reduced by $400,000 each fiscal year for the next five years. UA administration said cuts to AZPM are necessary to deal with budget issues. “We’ve had a lot of cuts from the state legislature because of economic downturn and rebecca marie sasnett/Arizona Summer Wildcat it has been significant,” said Chris Sigurdson, Radio and television reporters work on stories in the Arizona Public Media newsroom Tuesday.

UA prof wins grant for online teaching BY Nicholas Peppe
Arizona Summer Wildcat
A UA astronomy professor was recognized last week with an award that will grant him $1 million to advance online science education for undergraduates. Chris Impey, a university distinguished professor and deputy head of the department of astronomy, is one of just 15 educators in the country who were awarded the title of Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professor. The HHMI Professors Program, founded in 2002, was created with the vision to empower professors to introduce innovative approaches in teaching science to undergraduates at research universities. “Exceptional teachers have a lasting impact on students,” HHMI president Robert Tjian said. “These scientists are at the top of their respective fields and they bring the same creativity and rigor to science education that they bring to their research.” Impey, who has won 11 teaching awards during his career, is known as a pioneer in the use of instructional technology for teaching science

reports consisted of bicyclists hitting the pavement after the wheels were caught in the tracks, with injuries that ranged from minor scrapes to broken bones. Hannah Hollins, a UA alumna and avid cyclist, is no stranger to these growing concerns. In February 2013, a bicycle ride down Fourth Avenue and University Boulevard ended in frustration and a broken elbow. “I had been riding my bike past the cafe when I noticed a parallel-parked car was sticking out too far,” Hollins said. “The owner opened the door and I swerved to avoid hitting the car.” As a result, Hollins’ bike got stuck in the tracks and she fell. Hollins said the secret to riding successfully on the streetcar tracks is to act cautiously and ride perpendicular to the tracks as much as possible. However, at the time of Hollins’ crash, there was parking alongside the streetcar tracks, which leaves less space for cyclists to navigate around the tracks. According to the LSA, the Tucson

These classes not only teach proper cycling techniques, but also supply free helmets, bike lights and u-locks with participation. The City of Tucson, LSA and PTS seem to have united around one common goal: to create a plan that streetcar riders, drivers and cyclists can all benefit from. However, Hollins believes not everyone can win in this situation. “In trying to modernize Tucson, it is extremely difficult to make everyone happy,” Hollins said. “Someone’s needs are bound to be swept under the rug, or on the tracks for that matter.”

A mellow marijuana bust
University of Arizona Police Department officers observed a non-UA affiliated man walking out of the Student Union Memorial Center at approximately 6:30 p.m. on June 30. Upon spotting the officers, the man turned about face and walked back into the student union. Officers made contact with the man, who said he wasn’t trying to avoid the police, but that he was trying to get a drink of water. Officers told him to get a drink and talk to them if the man didn’t mind. Upon returning from getting drink, the man spoke with officers. He told them that he was going to a friend’s house. Officers asked the man if he had anything illegal on his person, and the man admitted to having possession of a plastic bag of marijuana and a joint in his front pocket. Officers confiscated the drugs and paraphernalia and cited the man, noting that the man was very cooperative and honest throughout the interaction.
UAPD officers observed a man driving erratically at 2 a.m. on June 27. The black Honda was seen swerving into the bike lane while traveling eastbound on Speedway Boulevard. The vehicle then corrected itself and suddenly cut across three lanes to turn left onto Mountain Avenue. Officers pulled over the vehicle and made contact with the driver. The officer noticed the man’s eyes were bloodshot and watering. He was slurring his speech and the officer noticed the smell of alcohol on his breath. The driver admitted to police to having had one drink earlier in the night. As the driver exited the vehicle he swayed while walking. The officer administered a Standard Field Sobriety Test. The driver showed numerous cues of inebriation during the test. Officers read the driver his Miranda rights and placed him under arrest. In custody at the police station, the driver blew a .101 on a breathalyzer test. Officers secured the vehicle and seized the driver’s license before releasing the driver to a friend.

Pima and UA partner to aid in transfer student retention by Meredith Morrissey
Arizona Summer Wildcat
The UA and Pima Community College have collaborated to ease student transitions to the university and increase PCC transfer student retention rates at the UA. Many PCC students have difficulty getting socially adjusted to the UA, said Paul Miller, associate director of UA transfer enrollment services. “It’s a very large institution, so it can be intimidating for a transfer student. There’s kind of a culture shock,” said Shelley McGrath, senior director for UA academic programs and transfer coordination in the Office of the Provost. Ed Doran, a professor and counselor at PCC, noted that many students struggle with the shift in coursework expectations. “We really try and prepare them for the fact that U of A courses are likely to be more difficult, but overall I think that the data says that the average grade point [average] drops about one point from a community college to a university,” Doran said. Doran teaches STU 210, a PCC course designed to teach transfer strategies to prospective UA transfer students. UA faculty members help write the curriculum and the course continues to evolve with student feedback to better address these social and academic issues. According to McGrath, overall retention rates of PCC transfer students at the UA have

increased in recent years. In 2006 there was approximately a 77 percent retention rate for fulltime transfer students from PCC, whereas in 2012 there was an 84 percent retention rate, McGrath said. She and the Student Affairs and Enrollment Management staff feel confident that there is
a relationship between its efforts and the increase in retention. The UA recently developed a “Two Plus Two” plan with PCC to ensure that students at the community college are able to get associates degrees, but also fulfill major requirements once they transfer to the UA,
McGrath said. “Essentially what that means is for almost every major that we offer at the UA there is a pathway laid out for prospective transfer students to see exactly what they need to take during their first two years at PCC,” McGrath said. The number of transfer students going on academic probation has also decreased 5 percent since 2010, according to McGrath. Doran said many PCC transfer students struggle in adjusting to the higher tuition at the UA as well as satisfying all academic requirements in a shorter amount of time, especially for honors students trying to complete their honors thesis. Miller recommends students contact the Transfer Student Center and speak with academic advisers even before applying to the UA to help smooth the transition. He said there are many resources available that students should take advantage of as early as possible. “I think we haven’t … done a good job of advertising what we do, so we’re in the process of changing that and that’s the only thing I think we need to really work on in the future,” Miller said.

footage captured by body-worn cameras on TPD officers, OIA found that the complainant was aggressive and inciting the crowd to riot, and found the use of force by the officer was within guidelines. Roberto Villaseñor, TPD chief of police, said in a written statement that the media excessively covered isolated events of police violence, such as the video of Mann, and overall there were minimal injuries, including no police injuries, for such a volatile situation. The report describes the events of the conflict, which began after the conclusion of the Elite Eight game. It stated that police were attempting to stop crowds from forming on University Boulevard, but when the basketball game ended, thousands of people entered the street, creating a public safety concern. “During [attempts to disperse the crowd] the crowd grew, and began to confront officers and display rowdy behavior,” the report said. Acts of aggression from the crowd continued to escalate. Beer bottles, fire crackers and smoke bombs were thrown. After numerous attempts to disperse the crowd failed, police made the decision to deploy less-lethal chemical munitions. The report states that this decision was made based on many factors, such as acts of violence against police, obstruction of the road and sidewalk, increasing aggression from the crowd and the apparent intoxication of individuals inciting the crowd.

A TUCSON POLICE DEPARTMENT officer documents the reactions of UA fans during the clash between UA fans and TPD after Arizona lost to Wisconsin in the Elite Eight in Anaheim, Calif. A police board of inquiry found the actions taken by TPD to control the large crowd of UA fans on University Boulevard were justified.
The police on the scene deployed approximately 200 pepperball rounds and nine aerosol vapor canisters containing pepper spray as well as other less-lethal chemical munitions. The OIA received two citizen complaints the night of the incident and one the following day. Social media, such as Twitter and Facebook, aided in the police investigation after the conflict, but drew people to the area the night of the incident despite police instructions to stay away, the report said.

Suggestions included partnerships with the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control, Tucson Code Enforcement officers and the Tucson Fire Department in order to enforce crowd occupancy requirements during large events. Additionally, the board encouraged increased police training and staffing as well as planning with the UA during future Sweet 16 and Elite Eight games. — Follow Hannah Plotkin @HannahPlotkin

rban Dictionary defines a bandwagoner as someone who chooses to care for a sports team simply because it is popular or successful, which is to say that bandwagoners have no real loyalties. They’re like the sellsword mercenaries in “Game of Thrones,” but instead of being loyal to the highest bidder, they’re loyal to whomever is most popular. Bandwagoning encompasses a wide range of activities. Often people bemoan the existence of bandwagoners when it comes to a band they like, for example, as the bandwagoners’ intentions ftnseas3909.a21 are regarded as less pure than original fans. Bandwagoners are viewed as using something that true fans have heavily invested in as a mere means to a selfish end, associating with it only because it is popular. Yet in some degree every one of us is guilty of embracing something after it has become popular. Consider that there are very few bands you have liked before many others had already liked them, and the same is true for movies, books and TV shows — at one point or another, you have probably jumped on a bandwagon, and sometimes you have jumped off

Just the tip: Summer flings BY TORSTEN WARD
Arizona Summer Wildcat
So summer is here and you find yourself remarkably single. Just because you haven’t committed your life to someone yet doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of potential partners out there who you can show off your beachseason bod to. There are plenty of fish in the sea, right? But how do you weed out the clownfish and find yourself a good catch? More importantly: How can you assure this fish will end up back in the ocean and off your plate come fall? The perfect summer fling is tricky to execute, but with these tips you’ll be filling the hole in your heart that was left by last semester’s finals quicker than you can say, “Can I have your number?”
BY CHRISTIANNA SILVA
Arizona Summer Wildcat
Pick your poison Ideally, your summer fling will be someone who you find yourself attracted to. For your sake, I hope the feeling is mutual. There are a few criteria you should be mindful of. First off, they can’t be your friend. An acquaintance at most is what we’re looking for here. Close friends turned lovers is never a casual or short-term encounter. Besides, getting to know someone is one of the best parts of the summer fling experience. Next, you can’t be close to them physically. That’s not to say you can’t go to Pound Town with your new boo — that’s up to you guys. But not being able to separate yourself from said boo once the summer sun sets is a big problem. If there’s any chance you might be seeing a lot of them in the near future, don’t start anything to begin with. Friend of a not-so-close friend? Sweet. Are you both back home from different schools? Perfect. Someone you met at a Fourth of July party? Sure. Work colleague? No. An ex? Definitely not. Are you even listening? Finally, make sure you actually like this person. Just because they fit the criteria doesn’t ensure a match made in casual heaven. Hitting it off is a great sign, but make sure you truly want to spend the next two or three months of your life getting to know them and having some fun.
Be forward If you want this to happen you might have to step outside your comfort zone a bit. This is a summer fling, after all, and there’s not a whole lot of time to waste. If you want that monsoon cuddle-buddy, act fast. Make your move and see what happens. If they don’t reciprocate your feelings, move along

and keep your eyes peeled. If they do, be honest from the get-go. It should be clear that you’re not looking to make anything Facebook official. Additionally, if you have any baggage, lay it out on the table. If you just got out of a relationship or things are complicated with another person, say so. They deserve to know. So do you. Especially if you plan on being each other’s play-things for the next couple of months.
Enjoy yourself With all this love in the air, don’t forget to actually have fun. Summer flings aren’t about the serious talks or meeting the family. Go out and do some fun stuff. Hit the beach, go on a hike or take a road trip. If you’re not the adventurous or outdoorsy type, then just stay inside, marathon some cheesy movies, throw popcorn in each other’s mouths and have a tickle fight. Whatever it is you two find entertaining, do it — even if it is just for each other.
Don’t expect too much/too little
It doesn’t need to be said that this isn’t a normal relationship. Keeping things casual emotionally means that you don’t necessarily have to be in constant contact or with one another. If that’s just how you two roll, be my guest — otherwise, they’ll see you as a stagesix clinger and go running for sanctuary while you’re left out to dry in the summer heat. That being said, you should expect some
form of longevity. A summer fling is not a one-night-stand and should not be treated as such. Keep in touch and be open about prior commitments, travel plans and busy schedules. Individuality should be praised, but don’t be a stranger. Flings are more like vacations from single life than actually moving to Commitment City. While you’re there, follow the rules. Just know that you’ll be flying back to reality soon enough.
Heels-over-head Now for the elephant in the proverbial room: don’t fall in love. At least try not to. If there’s a remote possibility you and your fling can and might actually develop into something more (and you BOTH feel this way), then good luck. But if this is a true summer fling, heavy feelings are a huge no-no. Keep it light and easy-going. Sweet nothings are fine but “I love you” texts are a warrant for evacuation. That goes for both of you. Flings are an easy way for feelings to get hurt so don’t fall in love and become the poster-child for the heartbreak club. Don’t wear your heart on your sleeve; leave it in your chest. Summer vacation can be the best of times or the worst of times. Good luck finding your fish and may the odds be ever in your favor. Happy fishing, everyone. — Follow Torsten Ward @torstenward
Ed Sheeran and his famous fiery locks have been leading the iTunes top albums chart for weeks. He is known as this generation’s best and biggest hopeless romantic, and with his newest album, X or Multiply, he seems to be cementing his place at number one. The album mixes his usual styles beautifully, flowing from rap in “Take It Back” to pop with Pharrell Williams in “Sing ” to a soul-rock-pop mixture in “Runaway.” Sheeran demonstrates his skill for what Billboard calls, “Shrugging off the conventions of mainstream pop while still managing to enjoy its successes.” The first single that was released from this album was “Sing.” This sent fans into a frenzy, angry that his style had been compromised by his fame and tour with pop star Taylor Swift. American Songwriter gave the track 2.5 out of 5 stars, and suggested the poor outcome of the song may be due to the process of “combining the two artists’ individual styles,” and what makes each artist interesting got lost along the way. Thankfully, once the full album was released, fans’ nerves were quelled. The first song of the album, “One,” takes Sheeran’s fans back to his old style in his first few EPs. The style of “One” has been tried and true for Sheeran, but it still shows his growth as an artist. He chose a perfect tune to begin with, quenching his fans’ thirst for his singersongwriter style, which is continued with the second track on the album, “I’m a Mess.” The following track is “Sing,” which almost ruins the listener’s buzz, but thankfully the skip button is always available. “Don’t” was another song Sheeran released before the official release of his album. The song is a little petty, considering he said in an interview that the song is about “someone who’s well-known,” and continues to beat around the bush that the tune is about his short-lived relationship with Ellie Goulding. No matter who the song is really about, the lyrics don’t follow Sheeran’s usual tone. Unlike most of

Sheeran’s songs, it’s hard to relate to since most of us have never been on a large-scale tour, fooled around with a famous singer and had her cheat on you with someone on the same hotel floor. The lyrics are so specific to his own experiences, it sounds more like a diary than a pop hit. He completes his album with “I See Fire,” a tune written for “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” According to Examiner.com, Sheeran and Peter Jackson are close, and when Sheeran was at dinner at Jackson’s house, they exchanged gifts – Jackson’s daughter received one of Sheeran’s guitars, and Sheeran received a sword from “The Hobbit.” Sheeran called this the “coolest day” of his career. This put the two in touch, and soon Sheeran followed with the credit tune for “The Hobbit.” According to MTV, Sheeran had the opportunity to show off his musicality as he played all the instruments, sans cello. It is a prime choice to finish the album and beautifully ties in all of Sheeran’s talents. While the album has its ups and downs, it showcases the singer-songwriter genre wonderfully and is a true example of some of Sheeran’s greatest work to date. — Follow Christianna Silva @DailyWildcat

one of the toughest things you’ll see in the cinema this year. Even with all of this, the film does seem to favor Ebert. One of the final questions James asks Ebert in their correspondence is, “Why did you call your book, ‘Life Itself?’” Ebert’s response: “I can’t.” It would be too easy for us to be given an answer. It would be like asking God, “What’s the meaning of life?” We can’t have an answer, but we can take a pretty good guess at the whole thing. Anyhow, Ebert probably knew the answer to both. “Life Itself” opens at The Loft Cinema on July 18. Rating:

Generic jerseys help collegiate fans
NBA SUMMER FROM PAGE 16
If you haven’t seen the footage of Johnson’s first game, go do that now. You’re missing out on some quality basketball and a dunk that shook the basketball world. For those who have seen his dunk over 6-foot-10 center Tim Ohlbrecht, you know exactly how epic it was. For those who have not seen NBA TV’s No. 1 play of the first day of summer league: Google it. To top it off, Johnson and Gordon faced off in their second summer league game. Johnson scored a game-high 13 points but shot just 3-12 from the field and his Houston Rockets team lost 87-69 to Gordon’s Orlando Magic. Gordon’s nine points and seven rebounds on Monday was an improvement from his debut, but he was outplayed by teammate and fellow rookie Elfrid Payton. The only other former Wildcat who is guaranteed to play this summer is Williams. Williams is entering his fourth NBA season and would generally be too seasoned to play in the summer league. However, his inconsistencies with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Sacramento Kings all but guaranteed he would play in this year’s summer league. The 6-foot-8 forward has come a long way since his high-flying days at Arizona and this summer could make or break his NBA future. A good performance likely ensures one or two more NBA paychecks, while a poor performance likely signals the beginning of the end of his NBA career. Regardless of if these former Arizona standouts play or not, one thing is clear: Arizona basketball is always relevant.

Arizona Summer Wildcat
t’s July, which means jersey burning season is about to begin and Arizona football fans are getting unexpected value in 2014. July marks the beginning of NBA free agent season and in the last few years a trend has emerged to burn the jersey of a player who changes teams. In 2010, Cleveland Cavaliers fans burned LeBron James jerseys after he left to join the Miami Heat and this year, photos of Heat fans threatening to burn James jerseys have appeared on social media. Very quickly a player fans love can become one fans hate and the jersey a fan spent almost $100 on is something they don’t want to see again. The day after former Phoenix Suns player Steve Nash defected to the muchdespised Los Angeles Lakers, I saw a homeless man wearing a Nash Suns jersey. When the 2014 Arizona football jerseys go on sale soon, it doesn’t look like Wildcat fans will have to dispose of their expensive

jerseys. Jerseys have consistently rising costs — last year Arizona football jerseys rose to $90 and UA basketball uniform tops are $120 at the bookstore — which makes buying one a gamble. Do you support your team and risk wasting $90 if that player switches teams or gets arrested? Like in the case of Joe Paterno, we’ve learned not to build statues of people who are still alive. To quote Harvey Dent in “The Dark Knight,” “You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.” Handing over $90 for a shirt is pretty crazy already, but doing so when you might have to get rid of it? Since Nike raised the price of NFL jerseys to at least $100, I haven’t seen many new ones and it seems like less UA fans got the new $90 tops that Arizona debuted last year. However, it looks like the UA is adding more value to its football jerseys. In an ESPN story last month, Arizona athletic director and vice president for athletics Greg Byrne revealed that the UA chose No. 14 for the number to be sold on this year’s jerseys, rather than the number of a star player like most teams. Byrne barely commented on it, but it is implied that Arizona did so because

debate over compensation for student athletes is a hot issue. While retail college jerseys don’t have player names on the back, everyone knew who No. 13 was on the men’s basketball team. Most consider the numbers as odes to players. By choosing No. 14, a number not currently worn by any Wildcat football player, the UA added value to fans’ investments. With no player wearing No. 14, there’s no chance he could transfer to ASU or USC, get arrested or anything else. Last season, Arizona selected No. 33, worn by linebacker Jake Fischer, over Ka’Deem Carey’s No. 25. While Fischer was the star of the defense and a Daily Wildcat senior award winner, Carey was a legend, making the pick a bit controversial. It was safe though, since Carey was involved in a couple of field incidents. Carey behaved, but if he was arrested again, a No. 25 jersey would’ve been a problem for UA fans. According to the report, only two other schools are selling generic jerseys: Texas A&M and Northwestern. By selling a jersey without the number of a star player, the UA is protecting its fans from getting burned. — Follow James Kelley @jameskelley520

UA baseball keeps swinging BY EVAN ROSENFELD
Arizona Summer Wildcat
A coach’s work is never done. After all the hustle and bustle of the season, the offseason doesn’t feel like much of a vacation. Recruiting oftentimes occurs during the offseason and that sometimes includes traveling all around the country to scout the best potential talent for your team. “I always believe you need competition between the players who are looking for a starting role within the program,” UA baseball head coach Andy Lopez said. “This not only creates a better team, but keeps the guys on a good edge and stops them from becoming complacent. [Willie] Calhoun is playing well at third in the Cape and [Cody] Ramer will be in the running for the position as well. Unlike last year, we are more focused on having a lot of competition within the program.” Lopez said that the squad is targeting two junior college third basemen, but that nothing is set in stone until after those players figure out what they are going to do about the draft.
Summer League Standouts:
Nathan Bannister – Orleans Firebirds – Cape Cod League Last year in the Alaska Baseball League, sophomore pitcher Nathan Bannister led his club with a 6-0 record, striking out 36 over 52 innings. This summer,

playing in the more-rigorous Cape Cod League, Bannister has proven he is a force to be reckoned with. The Peoria, Ariz. native has been solid in each of his appearances this summer and throughout 18 innings pitched has limited opposing batters to a .186 average.

ranks second on the team with 12 RBIs off eight hits, two of which were home runs, over 13 games. Dalbec has also been used in the late innings as a setup man out of the bullpen. He’s struck out five in 3.1 innings pitched. Willie Calhoun – Wareham Gatemen – Cape Cod League Despite belonging to the team with the worst record in the CCBL (7-15), freshman infielder Willie Calhoun has made the most of his opportunities this summer in the Cape. He ranks sixth in the team with a .283 batting average and has collected 28 hits. Calhoun’s 20 runs scored and 12 doubles represent the most in the league. Kevin Newman – Falmouth Commodores – Cape Cod League Freshman shortstop Kevin Newman returned to the Commodores for his second summer in Cape Cod after becoming the first freshman to ever win the Cape Cod Baseball League batting title last year. In the summer of 2013, Newman finished hitting .375 and led all players with 60 base hits, 36 runs scored and 18 RBIs in 40 regular season games. This year, Newman has continued to see success and leads his team with a .410 batting average and nine RBIs.

Former Cats get summer chance BY ROBERTO PAYNE
Arizona Summer Wildcat
he NBA Summer League is a yearly chance for young players to make an impression for all 30 teams in the National Basketball Association. Some of those players are undrafted rookies while some are highly-drafted players from recent drafts. This is the first opportunity for those players to prove that they belong in the NBA. Arizona basketball fans will get a chance to see several high-profile names before the regular season begins in October. This year, five former Arizona Wildcats are listed on rosters for the 2014 NBA Summer League: Nick Johnson, Derrick Williams, Aaron Gordon, Grant Jerrett and Solomon Hill. Williams, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, will participate in summer league for the second time. Gordon and Johnson were just drafted fourth and 42nd overall in the 2014 NBA Draft and are participating in their first action with their new teams. Hill and Jerrett were drafted 23rd and 40th overall in the 2013 NBA Draft and are participating in their second NBA summer league. Sadly, both players are currently injured. Jerrett will miss the entire summer league with an ankle injury and Hill hasn’t played his team’s first two games due to an ankle sprain. Of the five players, only Johnson and Gordon have made their summer league debuts so far this year. Gordon appeared tentative at times during his debut on Saturday and, apart from a highlight block in which Gordon caught the ball in mid-air, didn’t make much of an impact on the game. He finished with seven points on 3-11 shooting and added five rebounds. Johnson was the exact opposite in his debut. The 6-foot-3 guard put on a show by playing lockdown defense to go along with 18 points, five rebounds, three assists and one highlight-reel dunk.
