ODOT works to prevent more wrong-way crashes



By Alex Alusheff City Editor

A little more than a year after WRONG-WAY a wrong-way crash claimed CRASHES IN 2013 the lives of three University students, both the Ohio WOOD COUNTY Head on: 1 Department of Transportation Fatal: 0 and Ohio Highway Patrol have taken measures to prevent OHIO: such tragedies from happen- Head on: 286 Fatal: 11 ing again. The local highway patrol has adopted proactive measures such as visiting driver education schools to discuss highway safety, including wrong way driving, in order to make the public more aware of those situations, said Lt. Jerrod Savidge, post commander for the Bowling Green Post of the Ohio Highway Patrol. ODOT spent $74,300 adding 245 signs and pavement markers along highways in Wood, Lucas, Henry, Ottawa and Sandusky counties in District 2, said Theresa Pollick, public information officer for ODOT District 2.

Students plan for weekend clean-up following St. Patrick’s Day celebrations

By Eric Lagatta Assistant Campus Editor


s some students are going to bed after a night of partying, others are waking up to pick up the mess. St. Patrick’s Day may only be one day of the year, but that won’t stop students from celebrating the holiday all weekend, which takes its toll on the downtown cleaning crew. Randy Hann, maintenance supervisor for downtown Bowling Green, an organization concerned with maintaining and improving downtown and attracting customers and residents to the area, is taking extra measures to prepare for the influx of inebriated students. The morning cleanup shift typically requires one person, but to counteract the surplus of litter, Hann will increase the downtown cleanup crew to four Thursday through Monday. While some of the additional hands will come from Downtown BG staff, most of the


help will come from volunteers, Hann said. The daily shift goes from 8 a.m. to noon. The extra volunteers will be tasked with keeping streets clean by clearing it of beer cans, cigarette butts, Irish beads and any other litter resulting from the holiday’s festivities. “We typically found with St. Patty’s Day, there’s a lot of additional problems because of people vomiting and throwing down their Irish trash,” Hann said. While trash and vomit may bother some students, it doesn’t bother Michael Oiler, who is volunteering to clean downtown with some of his fellow fraternity members of Tau Kappa Epsilon. “I’m not too worried about it,” Oiler, a junior, said. “We’ve done cleanup like this before.” Sophomore Pat Gallagher, the community service chair for TKE, gathered several other fraternity members, including Oiler, to

University celebrates Women’s History Month By Kendra Clark



March signifies the start of spring, but also the start of Women’s History Month. It is a month that Mary Krueger, director of the Women’s Center, has been planning for quite a while. “It has been celebrated since the 19th century in BG,” Krueger said. “We have been working and planning for a couple months on the theme and events this year.” The theme for 2013 is called, “The Exceptional Woman: Hail Her or Fail Her?”. All of the events and speakers will be based around this main idea of the “exceptional woman.” “There are two sides to being an exceptional woman,” Krueger said. “One is she feels on top of the world and can do anything. The other is having the weight of the world on

her shoulders.” A group of faculty and graduate students from the Women’s Center and the Woman’s Studies Program got together to come up with the events and themes for Women’s History Month. Among the group was Lesa Lockford, director and graduate coordinator of the women, gender and sexuality studies program. “Women’s History Month is a great opportunity to pause and reflect,” Lockford said. “57 percent of the student body are women so we get to see the challenges that have faced women to where they are today.” Lockford believes that women still have tough roads ahead. “Women have made significant progress, we even have a woman for a president [at the University],” Lockford said. “But, statistics still

show that women still earn significantly less than men in this country. There are still issues today facing women.” Women’s History Month shows there are more sides to history than what are told in the history books, Krueger said. “The United States history has always been defined by white men.” Krueger said. “This is an annual gentle reminder that women are a big part of history as well.” Amy Mauro, sophomore, agrees with Krueger. “Most of the history we learn is through a white male point of view,” Mauro said. “It is nice to see the women’s side of history and how they have progressed.” Jessica Arnovitz, a University freshman, is in a women studies

HISTORY From Page 1 class with Mauro. She agrees that celebrating Women’s History Month is important. “There are some things that need to be remembered, and we take them for granted,” Arnozitz said. “History has a tendency to repeat itself, so by learning about women’s history, we can prevent the bad things in there from happening again.” Out of all the events that are planned for the month, both Krueger and Lockford are most excited about the two Keynote presenters, poet

I don’t expect a radical movement to come from these events, but hopefully just one person will see the world in a new light.”

“The majority of the time people go on the wrong side of the road is a cross between a full-out mistake and getting on the wrong ramp and not being familiar with the area,” Savidge said. “Once people see the lights, they’ll pull over.” While both departments have taken these preventative measures, neither will be able to tell how effective they are in lowering these crashes compared to the past, as the state just started to record wrongway crashes this year. The Ohio Department of Public Safety captured this data due to a pre-planned update to crash reports, which happens every five to 10 years, not because of the crashes this past year, said Lt. Anne Ralston of the Public Affairs Unit of the Ohio Highway Patrol. Since Jan. 1, there have been two wrong-way collisions in Wood County and 638 in the entire state, including 11 fatal crashes, according to a March 14 query on the department of public safety’s website. The full year’s worth of statistics won’t be available until mid-2014 because the department of public safety keeps crash statistics for all law enforcement agencies in Ohio, Ralston said. While the crash statistics are new, the highway patrol is looking to keep these particular crashes low. “There’s even more of a sense of urgency when responding now to prevent what happened last year because it was obviously very tragic and that scene always flashes in mind,” Savidge said, recalling the University students’ accident.

This time last year, neither department had any strategy or plan in place to help prevent those types of crashes. “We wanted to increase the visibility for wrong-way drivers to prevent wrong way crashes from happening,” Pollick said. After a safety review team researched different measures and practices in Ohio and the county, ODOT chose these updates because of how fast they could be implemented, she said. The department began to implement these updates in the summer of 2012 and finished the project in December, she said. “It’s important to understand that we’re constantly looking at ways to enhance safety — it’s a continuing process,” Pollick said. “Wrongway crashes have been an issues since the highways were built in the 1950s, but we’re constantly researching new ways to prevent wrongway crashes and all crashes.” Other changes included adding wrong way signs on exit ramps at interchanges and installing the signs at a three-foot mounting height, she said. Lower mounting heights are more visible at night because they are illuminated by the headlights of impaired and older drivers, who tend to drive with their eyes low, Pollick said in an email. In most wrong-way instances, however, impairment isn’t usually the case.

Dayspring’s mission is “very simple,” Pastor Scott Estep says in a video on the church’s website. “In fact, it comes straight from the words of Jesus. He told us to make disciples. A disciple is someone who follows Jesus,” Estep says. Through the commitment of its four pillars, Dayspring feels it can accomplish its mission of discipleship. The first pillar is EPIC Worship. EPIC stands for experiential, participatory, image-rich and connective worship. In addition to Sunday mornings, Dayspring reinforces its first pillar with its Axis services. Axis, which occurs every second Sunday of each month, is a worship service geared towards college students.

A second pillar important to Dayspring is its Life Group ministry. Life Groups are smaller group settings where people can meet and get to know each other while growing together with God. Finally, the other pillars of Dayspring Church are its School of Ministry and its missions emphasis. Along with committing to its four pillars, Dayspring seeks to help the community with healing through ministries like Celebrate Recovery. Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-Centered 12-step program that offers hope and healing from life’s hurts, habits and hang-ups. Celebrate Recovery meets every Friday evening at 7 P.M. at Dayspring. In addition to Dayspring’s desire to help and heal, Rocha said its church services are diverse and multi-generational with people of different nationalities. Also, Dayspring has an energetic environment where people can encounter God, Rocha said. Dayspring’s Sunday services occur at 9 and 11 a.m. Dayspring is located at 17360 North Dixie Highway in BG.

ings of God; the Church cannot change teachings outside its authority to change. Aside from wild speculations and obvious spin, some media outlets simply neglect to report accurately. An international newswire inaccurately reported the number of members in the College of Cardinals, despite the Vatican releasing a report days earlier with the number of members. An Ohio newspaper even referred to the College of Cardinals as the electoral body, but the cardinal-electors (the members eligible to vote) do that. Most media outlets treated the conclave like a televised pageant or reality show. Which Cardinal has the best chance of winning? Is he too old? What’s his track record? Could the drawn-out process be a sign of a lack of unity among Cardinals? Did Cardinal Dolan of New York even stand a chance? The conclave is guided by the Holy Spirit; it’s not a popularity contest, and not an elaborate spectacle or source of entertainment. Sequestered from the world, the cardinalelectors prayed and followed long-standing traditions to discern the next shepherd of God’s people. I think they did a pretty good job. Unfortunately, I see no

quick end to the marginalization of Catholicism in mainstream media, but I have some recommendations for students who seek the truth, and not just truths about the Catholic Church. College is a time to learn critical thinking. Do your research, fact-check and be certain your sources are credible. If you want to know what 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide believe, turn to Catholic sources. EWTN is the Catholic cable station, WNOC 89.7FM is our local Catholic radio station and is a great website. Father Michael Dandurand, pastor of St. Thomas More, is an incredibly valuable resource, too. Whether you agree with the Catholic faith or not, this incorrect reporting is disrespectful of the Church started by Jesus Christ nearly 2,000 years ago. Let’s show some props and give Catholics (and the Holy Spirit) credit for keeping this tradition strong. I’m looking forward to the continued growth and strength of the Catholic Church under the guidance of our Holy Father.

Find University’s intent, follow the money


can all appreciate the necessity of this: it must be hard to scrape along in a city as expensive as Bowling Green while making only $382,107 every year (the coach’s preraise salary per the 20112012 fiscal year, according to a BG News article from Sept. 27, 2012). Still, I wonder if the nameless instructor whose job was destroyed so that this raise could be paid really feels the sacrifice was worthwhile. But in tough times, you may say, tough choices have to be made. However these are not tough times for the University, not financially. The University brings in more money every year than it spends — often dramatically more. You can see why they feel they can pay the coaches a little more, to keep those salaries in line with the

norms for the field. What’s odd is that the administration seems intent on keeping faculty salaries bizarrely low. This punishes faculty who are loyal to the University and their students here, and rewards faculty who flee from here to the greener and fairer fields of other universities. Money is not honey. But it is indicative of an institution’s priorities: like the man says, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” No one will believe that the faculty is “the heart and soul of this university” until the administration starts to share some of its stored up treasure with the people who do the work this university was established to do.

Students can find and purchase Pinterest items on Wanelo By Kelsey Kula Pulse Reporter

Frieda Falcon via The BG News onto Summer Tanks.

Pick, click and buy — it’s as simple as that to obtain the most recently trending and unique products on the web. Wanelo is a website with the ability to buy products offered from any online store with just the click of a button. Like the social media website Pinterest, clicking on an image gives users the option to either save the item. Only on Wanelo, however, can the user buy the products pictured in front of them. The first two letters of want, need and love form the word Wanelo. This website lists all of the current trending items chosen by its users. A wide variety of products are offered such as clothes, home decorations and accessories. “It’s free organic advertising for different companies,” said Daniela Governatori, community manager at Wanelo. Even though some may think Wanelo is based off of Pinterest, Deena Varshavskaya, founder and chief executive officer of Wanelo, said the website was created around the same time as Pinterest.

PlayStation 4 offers more

Game system saves energy, shares content David Skowronski Pulse Reporter

Gamers will have to decide in the near future whether they should upgrade to the next generation of consoles or hold on to what they have. Games made for previous PlayStation systems will not work on the PS4 because of the absence of backwards compatibility. “I anticipate hesitation due to the lack of backwards compatibility,” said Josh Ballmer, manager at C&C Games. For sophomore Jeremy LaBant, the lack of this is not what is going to stop him from upgrading right away. “I’m gonna wait to get it because the PS3 will be supported for a while and the PS4 will be expensive,” LaBant said. The transition will take time, Ballmer said. “That might change depending on game sales, those usually push sales,” said Ballmer. The games coming out for the PS4 are the most exciting part, LaBant said. Sony introduced its next console, the PlayStation 4, at PlayStation Meeting 2013 in New York City. The introduction of its new console is the beginning of the next generation for gamers, according to a press release from Sony. The PS4 has many new features to make it stand out from its predecessor, according to the press release. It has a new sleep mode that allows it to keep the console on while conserving energy and players can pick up where they left off eliminating the need to turn on the console and load a game, according to the press release. The PS4 also allows gamers to share content more easily. By the press of a button, users can share their accomplishments with friends and share pictures and videos on Facebook, according to the press release. These are only a few of the improvements announced by Sony during its meeting. Even though there are all these new features, it may take some people time to come around to next generation consoles. Some of the games announced for the PS4 at the PlayStation meeting were Diablo III, inFAMOUS Second Son and Killzone: Shadow Fall. However, some students might not feel positive towards the announcement of the new console. “It’s just going to be another PS3; the features are only a little bit better,” sophomore Daniel Krentz said. The only exciting thing about the PS4 is that the PlayStation Move will be better, Krentz said. The PS4 is set for release this winter season.

Trap music brings new sound to campus Songs have hip-hop feel, different from dubstep music By Amber Petkosek Pulse Reporter

To some students, different types of techno music sound the same, but junior Kelsey Treon can tell the difference. “I could tell them apart when I heard them that they were different,” she said. Trap, a genre of music similar to dubstep, has become popular recently and is popping up in the music scene. Treon said she thinks there is a small difference between the music. “They both use a lot of bass,” she said. “I feel like dubstep uses heavier bass.” “A lot of people don’t know what it is, or they think it’s the same as dubstep,” said Manny Marcelo, who is also known as Kiss FM’s DJ Manny. The difference between dubstep and trap is one that is not apparent to many. “Dubstep uses robot sounds, and trap uses hip-hop samples,” Marcelo said. “Trap is like the ghetto dubstep.” The music is not defined by how many beats per minute, but rather the sounds it includes. “Trap has the same BPM at dubstep, it just uses different sound samples,” Marcelo said Banan Alkilani, the general man-

ager of Cla-Zel, said if you listen to the music you can hear the difference between them. “If you listen to Harlem Shake and Skrillex they are very different,” he said. Marcelo said there are a few producers currently releasing the trap music. “DJ Carnage and Baauer, Baauer did the Harlem Shake, are the two mainly producing it,” he said. Alkilani said the trend of electronic music being popular has been around for years. “From the ‘80s and ‘90s to now electronic music has been popular,” he said. “People like to experiment with the new software and instruments.” As long as the technology continues to move forward, more of this type of music will be released, Alkilani said. “The technology out there is always changing and advancing, there is always something to work with,” he said. The music people hear in clubs, Alkilani said often becomes popular after going “viral.” “Our DJ plays mainly mainstream Top 40 songs, so the ones that hit the scene of viral music go viral is

Free Range jams about politics, philosophy By Geoff Burns Pulse Reporter

When best friends Alex Cintron, Scott Oswald and Nick Wagner realized Mike Greisiger could play bass guitar during a party in December 2012, they knew it was time to start a band. “After that party we jammed together and made a song and decided to keep going with it,” Greisiger, bassist, said. The members formed their band Free Range, a rock and psychedelic funk band from Maumee, Ohio. Greisiger is a sophomore at the University and Cintron, drummer, goes to Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. The band enjoys writing its lyrics about stories and from old literature from the 1800s. Oswald, drummer, said he likes to write about political and philosophical points of view.


“We like to write about making people think when listening to our songs,” Oswald said. “We take the band really serious and want to get our name out there.” Greisiger said it’s difficult to practice together because Cintron lives three hours away and Oswald and Wagner, percussion, both have full time jobs in Maumee. Cintron writes the lyrics while the rest of the band writes music for the lyrics which make up the final song. Cintron makes the venture from Oxford to Maumee a few of days before a show to practice as a full band. “We don’t really know what the words are going to be when we have a song so we don’t really think of a melody until [Cintron] gets there,” Greisiger said. “After he gets there, the first practice we’ll be bad and be off beat and then we’ll practice and practice until we

get better. Once we get to a show everybody will be on beat and the show will be easy.” Free Range has performed some shows with fellow Maumee band Human Juicebox at Mickey Finn’s Pub in Toledo and at Howard’s Club H in Bowling Green. Chris Rogge, guitarist and vocalist in Human Juicebox, said his band enjoys playing shows with Free Range because they always pack the venue and both bands’ music is similar in genre. “They’re super young and I feel like they have a lot of potential,” Rogge said. “We like jamming on stage with each other.” The band has five songs recorded in the studio and plans to release a demo in a few months, as well as touring further than northwest Ohio. “We all talked about getting signed to certain labels,” Greisiger said. “We just need to get out there first.”

‘Oz’ is detailed, but lacks fulfillment By Curtis Vendeland Pulse Critic

with one-liners and endlessly pursuing profit, not giving second thought to the lies he spins to get it. If lying about being a wizard is all it takes to gain unprecedented riches, you don’t have to tell Oz twice. It’s refreshing to see a male protagonist in a fantasy film with shaky morals; the film isn’t shy about how selfish and materialistic its protagonist is. Mila Kunis plays Theodora, a witch seduced by Oz, and the character’s turn reveals Kunis’ limited range; like all the human characters in this CGI wonderland, she feels unnatural. Rachel Weisz plays her sister Evanora, as an evil witch. Glinda is played by the alwayswonderful Michelle Williams, though the flat and uninteresting nature of the character

“Oz the Great and Powerful,” Sam Raimi’s spiritual prequel to “The Wizard of Oz” (1939), is excellent eye candy. The environments are detailed, the colors are oversaturated and pop off the screen and fantastical creatures and plant-life make this Land of Oz appealing to the eyes. This splendor is good and bad for Oz; the lush digital landscapes, though beautiful, tend to outshine the action happening within the scene. The plot involves Oscar Diggs (James Franco), or Oz for short, a magician with questionable ethics who stumbles into Oz during a tornado and is mistaken for a wizard of prophecy. Franco plays Oz as smarmy as he can, seducing women

limits her abilities. Surprisingly, Zach Braff shines the brightest as a flying monkey with wit and charm, and his jokes land most laughs, next to Franco’s constant shrimp-eating grins. The actors could be acting their pants off, but the way the actors blindly gaze at the lush environments around them, there’s no way it couldn’t feel unnatural. The plot really picks up steam in an exciting final act that isn’t just a typical boring action set piece. The actors and the action are as shallow as the environments are luscious. “Oz the Great and Powerful” is entertaining and colorful to be worth the price of admission, but viewers looking for a more fulfilling experience might want to look elsewhere.

The crowd of people requesting the music is no different than usual, and Alkilani said this could be for various reasons. “Because it’s viral, everyone is attracted to it,” he said. “They’ve been playing it on SNL and Jimmy Kimmel, just about every late night host has done some kind of skit with it.” Alkilani said he cannot foresee the future of trap music. “People were saying over a year ago that dubstep wouldn’t last,” he said. “Now, two years later it’s still mainstream.

“It is actually just a coincidence that Wanelo’s layout is similar to [Pinterest’s],” Governatori said. All of the products offered to buy on Wanelo are from any online store a user happens to come across. The web site offers a link titled “Post to Wanelo” that can be dragged to the bookmark tab of a browser. This gives easier access to users who consistently want to add items to the website. Wanelo does not get permission to picture other companies’ products on their website because it is essentially free advertising for the companies, Governatori said. Junior Katie Everhardt said she learns about different products and companies from Wanelo. “I like that there is a different variety of products offered and they are all current trends,” Everhardt said. “Most of the time there are [items] that I have already seen so I have the chance to save a product if I forgot to save before.” Everhardt said she uses

Freshman Brooke Morgano said she likes Wanelo because it is similar to Pinterest. “I can scroll through things I like and save them to a list for later,” Morgano said. “It is like pinning items on Pinterest.” Wanelo is still a fairly new website and Everhardt said there is still room for improvement. “I don’t like that I can’t go to a specific style, and to get something new you have to scroll pages on pages,” Everhardt said. Morgano said she likes Wanelo’s layout since it is similar to Pinterest, but is skeptical to actually purchase something. “I’m kind of afraid to buy anything on Wanelo since it leads you to a different web site and every time I have tried to buy something, [the product] was out of stock or not there anymore,” Morgano said.

can’t say if [trap] will last or not.” Marcelo said he sees hiphop embracing trap music and making it more of a mainstream genre. “It’s going to take some Top 40 artists to make it mainstream,” he said. However, Treon doubts trap music will remain popular for long. “I mean dubstep has been around for awhile, it’s not the most popular kind of music so I can definitely see [trap] fading away,” she said. New trap music will always be created, but Marcelo said he also thinks it will be a passing trend. “It’s a phase, but it will always be in existence,” he said. “It just may not be the trending genre of the time.”

Gallagher said this type of community service is in line with the fraternity’s philosophy, “Better men for a better world.” While TKE members are required to do 24 hours of community service a semester, Gallagher sees it as more than just a membership requirement. “We like to view it as

as the advisor for the club because he has been performing in Irish musical groups for more than 10 years and knows Irish music professionally. Midden said he was excited when Kruse decided she was going to start a club at the University because not many people know about Irish dancing and it will promote the music more. “We’re interested in promoting the music and it’s a good way for people to have

fun and get together with people to interact,” Midden said. “Dancing adds a visual and a rhythm element to the music.” Lucy Long, instructor in the school of human movement and sport and leisure studies, has written a book on Irish dance and filmed a documentary video on a local Irish dance group and said hearing about the possible club caught her attention right away. “It will be a great opportunity to learn about the dance,” Long said. “It consists of a lot of exercise and will be a good way to learn about another culture, as well as having fun.” For more information on how to become involved, contact Kruse at akruse@

something that should be a part of our everyday lives,” Gallagher said. ”I believe this really kind of helps the greater community gain a better understanding of what greek life is all about.” TKE members will volunteer for the Friday and Saturday shifts, taking a break Sunday to have their own festivities, Gallagher said. Gallagher himself is doing the Saturday shift, while Oiler will work the Friday and Saturday shifts.

“All in all giving back is always a great experience,” Gallagher said. Both Gallagher and Oiler see this service as a way for students to connect with city residents and dispel stereotypes residents may have. “[We wanted] to show the community that students want to help, we’re not just there to go to the bars,” Oiler said. “They can see the caliber of person I am, the caliber of person [TKE members] are.” Hann has been prepar-

ing for the added crew by making sure he has all the necessary equipment, from leaf blowers to safety vests. He experienced his first St. Patrick’s Day in the city this past year, and recognized the increase in partying warranted the increase in the cleanup crew. “We really couldn’t get the job done if it wasn’t for volunteers,” he said. “I suspect that the party’s probably going to start Thursday night, and roll all the way through the weekend.”

Five years before sophomore Abigail Kruse began her college career, she wanted to learn how to Irish dance. Kruse first saw Irish dancing at Celtic Festival five years ago, a large event demonstrating Irish culture through music and activities. Irish dancing consists of two different styles such as step dance, a modern form of dancing primarily done in competition, and set dance, danced in square sets of four couples. Kruse has been step dancing for seven years and is in the process of creating an Irish Dancing Club at the University because she wants to share the cultural

dance with other students. “I miss dancing with other people,” Kruse said. “I practice on my own in my dorm. Maybe there are other people that dance who attend this school.” Kruse hopes to host meetings in which she could teach other students interested in learning Irish dancing and is trying to find as many venues to perform at as possible. “It’s not as prominent here in [Northwest] Ohio as it is in Southwest Ohio,” Kruse said. “It’s a nice way to stay active in college and it’s really fun. It’s a great way to make friends as well.” Kruse decided to choose Bob Midden, director of the Northwest Ohio Center for Excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education,

‘It’s a bitter pill to swallow’ Falcons’ 34 turnovers contributed to 81-48 blowout loss to Central Michigan

By Max Householder Reporter

The BG women’s basketball season ended in heartbreak at the hands of the Central Michigan Chippewas, 81-48, just as it had at the end of the previous season. “Anytime you turn the ball over 34 times,” said Jennifer Roos, coach. “The opponent uses that to their advantage of scoring 40 points, which was half of their point total, it’s not going to favor your team very well.” Just a day after getting revenge on Western Michigan for a defeat earlier this season, the Falcons would fall to a Central Michigan team they beat 84-59 in early February. BG was not on its game in the first half, going almost eight minutes without scoring. After a Bailey Cairndruff three-pointer with 12:47 minutes to go, the Falcons would remain scoreless for more than eight minutes until the 4:25 mark of the first half. The Falcons went on a 14-3 run to end the half. BG trailed the Chippewas 40-24 at the break. Although BG had closed the gap going into the half, the second half was much of the same. Central Michigan would almost double the Falcons’ scoring in the second half, outscoring BG, 41-24. BG would continue to see shot after shot rattle in and out, never warming up against CMU. The Falcons were 19-of-55 from the field which accumulated to a 35 percent field goal percentage. A main issue was the lack of threepoint production, despite the Falcons taking a lot of threes that simply struck iron. “We got a little three-ball happy in the first half,” Roos said. “But honestly we needed a spark and we would continue to shoot it because we needed a way to get back into the game.” BG attempted 33 three-point shots,

five more than its opponent. BG made 24 percent (8 of 33) to Central’s 35 percent (10 of 28). The Falcons had five players on the roster who attempted a three and failed to make one. The day went to Central Michigan. The Chippewas were 27 of 62 for a 44 percent field goal percentage. Unlike BG, almost all of its players that attempted a three made. “It’s a bitter pill to swallow when you lose like we did today,” Roos said. The Chippewas had three players score in double digits. The team was led by sophomore Crystal Bradford, who scored 23 on 9-of-20 shooting. Bradford also added six rebounds and four steals. CMU senior guard Brandie Baker was two assists shy of a double-double as she finished with 14 points and eight assists. The Falcons managed to outrebound Central 41-30, but its poor shooting would not let them forge any type of comeback. BG also committed 34 turnovers to just 13 from the Chippewas. The Falcons fell to the Chippewas in the tournament for the second season in a row. Bradford had BG’s number then as a freshman, leading CMU with 20 points, much like she lead them on Thursday. “We played 32 games, and this is one game of those 32. Our record is 22-10 [and] we had a fantastic year,” Roos said. “I believe we are a lock for a WNIT bid.” This season marks the first time in eight years the Falcons did not win either the MAC outright or the MAC Tournament. If the Falcons make the Women’s National Invite Tournament it will be the 9th consecutive year in postseason play according to Roos and the 10th season above 20 wins.

Since Chris Bergeron has taken over as head coach of the BG hockey program, the Falcons have had strong success in the postseason. The Falcons will need more of that road success this weekend as they head to Notre Dame for a best-of-three series. Each game, including Sunday’s, if necessary, is scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m. The team has won four Central Collegiate Hockey Association postseason series’ in his nearly three years as head coach. Each of those series wins has come on the road. On the line is a berth in the CCHA semifinals at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. The Falcons are looking to make back-to-back trips to the Joe; Notre Dame was most recently in the semifinals in 2011.

ANDREW HAMMOND stops a shot from a Michigan State forward in a game earlier this season.

Detroit is a part of BG’s goal to schedule some top opposition in preparation for the national collegiate championship in late April. The Tradesmen, also in the hunt for a national championship at their own level, see the game as a way to test its own players against the best local college competition while at the same time using the game to recruit BG’s seniors. The Detroit team is among the handful of clubs with a winning record against the Falcons. During the Falcons’ national championship run in 2011, Detroit edged BG 36 - 32. Last year, the Tradesmen squeaked out another victory when a BG try was called off by the referee in the remaining seconds on the clock, giving Detroit a 33-29 victory. Detroit is several steps up

Roger Mazzarella | Head Coach from BG’s normal comfort zone of feasting on the local college competition. The Falcons are banged up after the spring break tour, so it will be tougher to close the point gap this season than in the fall. Flanker Cyrus Sharif has returned after missing the entire fall campaign with an internship in Washington D.C. He’s added a little more depth to the exhausting defensive position, but knows the recent struggles on that side of the ball. “The lack of communication, I believe, is a big problem leading to defensive holes,” Sharif said. “Also, the lack of disci-

HOCKEY From Page 7 Andrew Hammond made in goal since Feb. 2 due to a knee injury. Even though he played half the game the night before in relief of Tommy Burke, Hammond appeared rusty, allowing four goals on 26 shots. “It’s tough dealing with not being on the ice for awhile,” Hammond said. “You get out of your routine. Once you start trying to get back into it, it maybe takes a little while. Now we’ve had a couple of weekends where I’ve gotten back into it and I think I’m right back where I was before.” Hammond picked up where he left off prior to the injury, stopping 70 of 75 shots in the three games against Lake Superior, good for a .933 save percent. He posted a 1.68 goals-against average for the weekend.

squad. “He’s not a f lashy player, but when his name is called, he gets the job done” Mazzarella said. BG will need to rely on some fresh legs to push it themselves into the April tournament. “Good teams find ways

to win when faced with adversity, and I had complete confidence in the guys when we needed to craft a try in those final minutes of the W VA game,” Mazzarella said. “Once they shook off the jitters in the first few minutes, guys like Dillon

“I think he got back to being Andrew,” Bergeron said. “We were disappointed with what happened at Notre Dame, because it doesn’t happen. Sometimes you see him give up one goal he’d like to have back, but not more than one. “This past weekend, the rust had been knocked off. He made some big time saves. It’s not a surprise that he’s back on top of his game.” The Falcons entered that series having lost two of three games, which severely hampered their chances of earning home-ice in the first round of the CCHA playoffs. Now, the Falcons head back to Notre Dame having won back-to-back games by a combined score of 13-3. “The perspective we’re going to take is if we’re doing things the right way, we’re a team that can score,” Bergeron said. “We’ve struggled at times

with that this year ... so that means if we don’t do things a certain way, we won’t score.” The Irish boast a talented, deep group of players led by Anders Lee, a FirstTeam All-CCHA forward and a finalist for CCHA Player of the Year. He is second in the league with 34 points. Six Notre Dame skaters have at least 20 points on the season. Goalie Steven Summerhays is fifth in the CCHA with a 2.03 goalsagainst average. “Their depth, to me, is their biggest challenge,” Bergeron said. “If it’s not [T.J.] Tynan, it’s someone else; if it’s not Lee, it’s someone else. If it’s not a forward, it’s a defenseman; if it’s not the defensemen, then Summerhays or [Mike] Johnson will be there. “That depth has so many layers. It’s big and strong depth, it’s skill depth.”

SEQUESTER From Page 1 Jerry Ameling, senior associate director for Student Financial Aid. Students in 2014, however, will be hit harder due to the smaller budget allocated for grants that every public university offers. Some of the negatively impacted grants include Federal Work Study and Federal Supplemental Grants, which award students with funds to help pay their tuition. Almost 1,200 University students depend upon these grants to help pay tuition and class fees. Projections show more than $70 million will be drained from these two grants nationally, according to estimations calculated by the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators.


About 90 University education majors received teaching grants this year. “Teach grants” present opportunities like internships and chances to earn credit for education majors. Despite the sequester’s large amount of education budget cuts, the University isn’t panicking just yet. ® “At this point these are just soft cuts affect stuPurch Advthat Tix @ won’t Exp 1432# said. dents800-326-3264 this year,”+ Ameling “Every public university will Woodland Mall of • N.the Main sequester.
