Armed robbery reported blocks from campus MP police releasing few details on Saturday night incident By Catey Traylor University editor and Tony Wittkowski Senior reporter

Central Michigan University students were met Saturday night with another alert, this time for an armed robbery three blocks north of campus. The Mount Pleasant Police Department is investigating an armed robbery that occurred Saturday at approximately 11 p.m. at the corner of S. Main and E. May streets. A Central Alert sent out to the campus community at approximately 11:45 p.m. described the alleged suspects as three black males — one wearing a gray jacket, blue jeans and brown boots — driving a black Chevrolet extended cab pickup truck with a cap. Anyone with information is asked to call Central Dispatch at 989-773-1000 or the CMU Police Department at 989774-3081. Because it is an open investigation, details are closed to the public until further

review. It is unknown at this time who was robbed or if CMU students were involved. The MPPD is handling the investigation because the robbery occurred within city limits, CMU police confirmed early Sunday morning. The robbery is the latest in a string of violent, and, in some cases, odd incidents that have rocked the area and the campus community in recent months. Last month, a Grand Rapids senior was abducted by 30-year-old Mount Pleasant resident Eric Lee Ramsey outside the Student Activity Center. The CMU student was able to escape, while Ramsey was fatally shot by a Crawford County sheriff ’s deputy after a lengthy car chase. In a news conference the morning after the abduction, Isabella County sheriff Leo Mioduszewski conceded the amount of violent crime in the area has increased and that “our community is changing.” Early Friday morning, a

By Tony Wittkowski Senior reporter

The surveillance footage of the Jan. 16 abduction of a Grand Rapids senior outside of the Student Activity Center shows that the incident occurred in Lot 62 West. The victim was abducted at gunpoint by Eric Lee Ramsey, 30, just north of the ticket booth, about 10 spaces from E. Campus Drive, Central Michigan University Police Department Detective Michael Sienkiewicz said. Sienkiewicz said there were other people present in the area at the time of the incident. Although the tapes showed no sign of a struggle, Central Michigan University Police Chief Bill Yeagley said the victim did the only logical thing in a situation involving a weapon. “I believe the victim did everything absolutely right,” Yeagley said. “Because when someone holds a gun to your head, you follow instructions.”

Sexual Aggression Services Director Stephen Thompson said the abduction would normally never occur in that situation because of the crowd present in the area. It was particularly busy, as a women’s basketball game had concluded about half an hour before the incident reportedly happened. According to a biography found on CMU’s website, Thompson has conducted countless interviews with convicted rapists, psychologists and doctors, as well as thousands of survivors and has trained and worked beside police officers throughout the country. “You have to realize how incredibly unique that crime was,” Thompson said. “I work with profiling away from here, and for him to target when there are people around like that is extremely rare.” Yeagley said the parking arrangement at the SAC did not make a difference in the abduction. “Parking on this campus is limited, and so we make best use of what’s available,” Yeagley said. “Our parking setup had no impact on this event occurring; this guy was evil and looking for an opportunity.” A VICTIM | 2

blood-red pool of beans, cheese and beef was an overwhelming favorite to win the Campus Crusade For Christ’s Super Bowl 2013 dip competition in the Ward Theatre, 218 S. Main St. It was only the second year CRu was able to secure the Ward Theatre for the Super Bowl and only the second dip competition as well. Midland senior Benjamin Puckett, the creator of The Kracken, didn’t do so well in last year’s competition, with a queso dip that failed to inspire. However, this year, he had a different strategy. “Actually, I kind of just made it up as I went along,” Puckett said. “Not much of a plan, really, but

who doesn’t like beef and bacon?” The Ward Theatre was one of several scenes around town that was fixated on the Super Bowl Sunday night, which engulfed Mount Pleasant in jovial celebration. Troutman Hall was also a hot spot, as a group of friends gathered in the common area for company and more, importantly, the larger television. “I feel like this is one of the more important Super Bowls,” said Devon Lynch,

a Ypsilanti Mid Michigan Community College student. “The 49ers quarterback was a backup in the beginning of the year, and he led them all the way to the Super Bowl. That’s big.” Alisha Harper, an Eaton Rapids junior, was watching the game three stories above in Troutman Hall, with Frasier junior Katelyn Nadolski and Linwood junior Eric Klass, but Harper was watching it for different reasons. “I’m here for the halftime show; I’m here to watch Beyonce,” Harper said. “She pretty much owns the world. She’s the woman version of Chuck Norris.” Shelby Township junior Rachel Zott, watching the game in a residence on Washington street, agreed. A Beyonce superfan, she has the special ability to listen to Beyonce non-stop and never get tired of it. “She probably knows karate,” Zott said. “She’s

part of that ‘Move Your Body’ campaign with Michelle Obama.” Residents and visitors of the S. Washington apartment, including Illinois sophomore Jack Montroy and a dog, Steve French, were also there for the game. “Steve kind of just finds a spot,” Montroy said, as the dog climbed up and joined them on the couch. “He has no sense of personal space, though. He’s not very good at calling his seat.” John Lees, a Cheboygan senior, was fully enveloped in the game at Marty’s bar, 123 S. Main St. He was cheering for the Ravens for one distinct reason. “I wouldn’t say I hate San Fransisco; I just don’t like them. The Tigers lost to San Francisco,” Lees said. “That’s why I’m cheering against them; they’ve won too many times.” A GAME | 2A

CMu students involved in friday morning stabbing By Shelby Miller Senior reporter

A drunken night ended with a stab wound and a stay at the hospital for a 20-yearold Central Michigan University student after he entered two Copper Beech apartments without permission. At 2:41 a.m. Friday, the Isabella County Sheriff ’s Department responded

to a stabbing at Copper Beech Townhomes, 4750 E. Bluegrass Road, where a 20-year-old man was found bleeding profusely from a stab wound in his lower left back, according to a news release. Witnesses said the man was highly intoxicated and entered two separate apartments without permission. Individuals in the first

apartment said they heard someone outside making noise. When they opened the door, they saw a man urinating nearby, police said. When they tried to shut the door, the man held it open and entered the apartment. The man then stepped back outside, and the residents were able to lock the door, police said. He then went around to

the back door and began pounding and kicking it before he headed inside an empty neighboring apartment. When the residents returned, they found the man lying down in one of the bedrooms. The residents told him to leave, but he refused, police said. A STABBING | 2

CDC reports sexual violence levels just as high for lesbians, gay men as heterosexuals By Shelby Miller Senior reporter

Sexual violence occurrence

Lesbians and gay men experience intimate partner and sexual violence at levels equal to or higher than heterosexuals. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s first National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, tracked the national prevalence data on intimate partner violence (IPV), sexual violence (SV) and stalking victimization by sexual orientation.

Director of the Office of LGBTQ Services at Central Michigan University Shannon Jolliff-Dettore said research surrounding sexual assault within the queer community is not often done, making the information very significant. “The information is important so folks can see the need for resources focusing on same-gender sexual assault and intimate partner violence,” she said. “We need to know this information so we can begin work on prevention and also resources for survi-

vors of SA or IPV.” The survey found bisexual women, who comprised 61 percent of the surveyed population, report a higher prevalence of rape, physical violence and stalking by an intimate partner compared to both lesbians, 44 percent, and heterosexual women, 35 percent. “It is not an unknown fact that SA and IPV happens across all sexual orientations,” Jolliff-Dettore said. “The study provides the numbers behind that knowledge so

there is a better understanding of the need for resources.” Of the bisexual women who experienced IPV, approximately 90 percent reported having only male perpetrators, while two-thirds of lesbians reported having only female perpetrators of IPV. Director of Sexual Aggression Services Stephen Thompson said, although this type of information is not new, the crime is common everywhere and needs to be addressed. A CDC | 2

“This is an extremely underreported crime to begin with,” he said. “When it occurs in the LGBTQ community, it is less likely to be reported due to a variety of reasons.” The data presented does not indicate whether violence occurs more often in same-sex or opposite sex couples. Rather, the data shows the prevalence of lifetime victimization of intimate partner violence, sexual violence and stalking of respondents who self-identified as lesbian, gay or bisexual and describes violence experienced with both same-sex and opposite-sex partners. “We know that violence affects everyone, regardless of sexual orientation,” CDC Director Tom Frieden said. “This report suggests that lesbians, gay men and bisexuals in this country suffer a heavy toll of sexual violence and stalking committed by an intimate partner,” Frieden said. “While intervening and providing services are important, prevention is equally critical.” According to the CDC’s 2012 Sexual Violence data, nearly one in five women and one in 71 men reported experiencing

STABBING | ContInuEd froM 1 The individual then lunged at one of the residents, and a struggled ensued. The individual was stabbed in the lower back by one of the residents and received a nonlife- threatening wound. He was transported to McLaren-Central Michigan. Isabella County Sheriff Leo Mioduszewski said both parties involved were Central Michigan University students but declined to release names. “Obviously, this stabbing was one of those situations where you have an individual not knowing where he was at the time,” he said. The prosecutor’s office has determined that no arrests will be made at this time. However, Mioduszewski said it will read police statements to determine what, if any,

rape at some time in their lives. “Across all sexual orientations, we need to raise awareness around prevention and resources for individuals who are survivors of SA and IPV,” Joliff-Dettore said. In the year prior to the survey, nearly one in 20 women and men experienced sexual violence other than rape. Since entering college, 19 percent of undergraduate women experienced attempted or completed sexual assault. “The numbers are significant and show a need for awareness education,” Thompson said. “People need to be aware that this is a problem that affects all.” More than 20 sexual assault cases occur on campuses each week, Central Michigan Life previously reported. However, the national sexual report rate is as low as five in 100. Thompson said 85 percent of sexual assault victims are assaulted by someone they know. In order to lower these occurrences, more education needs to be provided to address why people act out aggressively. By doing that, more awareness will be created about the issue of sexual aggression and bystander behavior, Thompson said.

Was the guy who did the stabbing acting in self-defense?” he said. “Any time there’s a stabbing, it’s serious. But (this incident) wasn’t anything pre-meditated.” The case remains under investigation by the Isabella County Sheriff ’s Department. This marks Mount Pleasant’s fourth stabbing since September, including a Thanksgiving weekend incident that killed 20-yearold Tyrone Stanley of Mount Pleasant. Curtis R.

Family bonding

CMu says it will comply with rightto-work law

Sibs Weekend breaks attendance record

By Neil Rosan Staff reporter

By Charnae Sanders | Senior reporter

Students and their families showed their Central Michigan University spirit and broke the record for most siblings to attend Sibs Weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

This year marked the 50th anniversary of Sibs Weekend, which began in 1963 and has since become a CMU tradition. “The cool thing about this weekend is that we have the record-high amount of siblings this year,” Livonia senior and Sibs Weekend co-chair Kristin Turbiak said. “We have more than 1,500 participants this year, so it’s really cool to be able to celebrate the golden anniversary with the large amount of CMU students and their siblings.” Turbiak is an advocate of the bonding time the weekend provides. “It’s a very great opportunity and very special to them,” Turbiak said. “… We spend, let’s say, nine months of the year at CMU, so it’s a great way to introduce their immediate family to their CMU family. It’s a great way for them to meet, have fun,

hang out with their siblings and have more bonding time with them.” During the weekend, there were several activities going on for students of all ages, from the CMU men’s basketball game to bingo, rock climbing, movie nights and a carnival, which allowed some to have their faces painted. Rachelle Spence of Chesterfield took her siblings ice-skating and went to the carnival, where they took pictures in the photo booth and had sibling rivalry while racing through the inflatable obstacle course. “It was really a lot of fun,” said Connor, Spence’s 11-yearold brother. “It’s my third year going. The first time, I was a little nervous. I was a little lost, but then I got really used to it, and it was a lot of fun.” A SIBS WEEKEND| 6

Program Board confirmed Friday porn star Ron Jeremy will not attend the Feb. 19 “Great Porn Debate” at Central Michigan University. Jeremy remains hospital-

ized in Los Angeles after suffering a heart aneurysm Tuesday afternoon. TMZ. com reported Thursday Jeremy will remain at Cedars-Sinai Hospital for the next two weeks while doctors monitor his heart. “I spoke to Ron’s agent

yesterday, and Ron will not be able to speak at CMU in February,” Program Board Ron Jeremy Director Damon Brown said. No decision has been made whether or not the event will be rescheduled. “We were given a couple of options, and we will

decide (this) week how we want to proceed … We have some options that we, as an executive board, need to discuss, and then we will go from there,” Brown said. Feb. 19th’s “Great Porn Debate” was scheduled to feature Jeremy and antiporn pastor Craig Gross in Plachta Auditorium and was one of a variety of sexual awareness programs Program Board is sponsoring in February. “Ron is currently in ICU

recovering from two major heart surgeries today … The surgeries went well,” Ron’s management team posted on his Facebook page Wednesday night. “… His doctors and his family now just want him to rest and have complete privacy.” Program Board agreed to pay $13,000 for Ron Jeremy’s appearance and expected a large turnout for the event. studentlife@cm-life.com

university seeking public input for campus master plan By Samantha Smallish Staff reporter

Central Michigan University is set to hold two meetings this week seeking public input for the 2013 campus master plan. The meetings will be held in the Ausable Room in the Bovee University Center Tuesday and Wednesday at 5 p.m. and 11 a.m, respectively. Land use, such as green space, bike paths, parking, future building locations and sidewalks will be discussed. The entire master plan

team will be present at both meetings. Students, faculty, alum and Mount Pleasant community members are encouraged to attend these meetings in order to provide input. “The master planning process supports the university’s goals, mission and values,” Director of Plant Engineering and Planning Linda Slater said via email. “It strengthens the vitality of CMU’s academic community and the environment for student success.” Slater said the CMU Board

of Trustees approved funding for a Campus Facilities Master Plan in July 2012. In August 2012, CMU hired SHW Group, an architectural and planning firm that has done previous work for CMU, to head the project. Other consultants include Paulien and Associates, from Denver, Co., and a group of engineers from Fishbeck, Thompson, Carr and Huber of Grand Rapids. With help from more than 175 people at CMU, the master plan team has been collecting data from

CMU’s campus by observing pedestrian walking and vehicle patterns and building entries, inspecting building space and utility systems and the examining various ways to use the available space on campus. “(The master plan) provides guidance for current and future academic space, support space, student housing, parking and the facilities infrastructure for CMU,” Slater said. At Tuesday and Wednesday’s meetings these consultants will be meeting

with various on-campus organizations, including the Academic Senate, Athletics, CMU police, the Council of Chairs, the Council of Deans, Development & External Relations, Dining Services, Enrollment and Student Services, Facilities Management, Finance and Administrative Services, Global Campus, the Office of Information Technology, Residence Life and the Student Government Association. A PLAN | 6

Central Michigan University will work to fulfill the requirements under the new right-towork law signed by Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder in December. The law, effective March 27, places Michigan on the path to becoming the 24th state with RTW legislation. “(The university will) comply with its obligations under the law as well as its obligations under its agreements with its unions,” according to a news release issued last week. Because of the RTW legislation, unions across the state will become open shops. This means union membership and payment of dues to a union cannot be a required condition of employment for public employees, which applies to CMU because it is a public university. However, a union can continue to represent all employees and still has the duty to represent any employee fairly, regardless of their membership. These requirements make it so public employees are protected from being pressured into joining or supporting a union. The law also established penalties for the violation of any of these terms. At Wayne State University, the faculty union wants to have a provision in a 10-year contract that would allow for the collection of dues, even after the law is passed. “Right-to-work was an attack on unions, and we’re trying to defend ourselves the best we can,” WSU Faculty Union President Charlie Parrish told the Detroit Free Press last week. Wayne State is just one of various union groups trying to fight the new law. The RTW law only applies to any collective bargaining agreements that have been entered into or renewed after March 27. CMU Faculty Association President Laura Frey said the FA will continue to work for faculty member’s rights to a quality workplace. “CMU FA remains committed to collective bargaining. The (FA) leadership is actively reviewing options to support faculty rights to a fair, equitable workplace environment,” Frey said via email. The change in the RTW legislation will be another topic for the FA, which includes more than 600 members. The FA and CMU reached an agreement on a three-year contract on Dec. 1, 2011, after months of turmoil, heading in a strike that canceled classes in August 2011. Several meetings and litigation, which began in April, then ensued between the FA and CMU. Since the fall, relations have calmed significantly between both sides, although tensions of the previous year are still being resolved. university@cm-life.com

Walk for Warmth raises more than $1,400 for families in need By Nichole Rombach Staff reporter

More than 100 people braved the cold Saturday to get a taste of what those without heat in their homes experience every day. Outfitted with gloves, scarves and hats, walkers met at the Mount Pleasant Housing Commission, 1 Mosher St., to kick off the third-annual “Walk for Warmth,” aiming to raise both awareness and funds in order to help heat the homes of low-income families in Gratiot, Ionia, Isabella and Montcalm counties. It was one of several walks taking place statewide. While donations are still

coming in and other events are to be held, the total for the day amounted to $1,427.90. Consumers Energy will match the total with an estimated $1,000. Shannon Collin, EightCAP employee, has been involved with the walk for three years and has recently taken on a new position that allows her to see how the funds are put to use firsthand, usually working to distribute the money to families. “It makes it all worth it,” Collin said. “I’ve been amazed seeing how many people are homeless or without heat and electricity, and it’s amazing to see how thankful they are.” Mary Schneider, another

EightCAP employee, has been hosting this event for years to raise funds for instances where grant money is unavailable or people are simply ineligible. Fellow EightCAP employee Todd Furlong said the organization intends to supplement existing funds in the face of cuts in federal funding. In 2012, EightCAP was able to assist 222 individuals. Partnering with EightCAP in the fight against poverty is Consumers Energy. “For me, it’s all about helping people,” Consumers Energy employee Brenda Johnson said. “I don’t want people to A WALK | 6

Mid-Michigan Area Health Education Center Beal City High put on lockdown plans forming board, taking regional survey after mother vows to ‘level’ it By Justin Hicks Senior Reporter

Completing a regional survey and creating an advisory board are the future initiatives for the Mid-Michigan Area Health Education Center at Central Michigan University. Executive Director Lisa Hadden leads the program, which was created in 2010 by a federal grant to recruit and train a health care workforce in Michigan. “We believe this program is much-needed, as Michigan is suffering from a shortage of professionals in almost all fields in health care,” Hadden said via email. “We really enjoy our work and believe that our contributions over time will bring something to the table.” The AHEC is a non-profit corporation housed in the College of Medicine at CMU built on three pillars: recruitment, placement and retention. Hadden said the corporation has plans to complete a regional survey to assess the needs and assets that support or create barriers to access to primary care. A regional advisory board encompassing 19 local counties is also on the agenda to assist in following through on the goals of the Mid-Michigan AHEC. “We will also be meeting with the Michigan Works!

Since her resignation as president of the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber of Commerce on July 12, Hadden said she has focused on the foundational work to get the AHEC corporation up and running. “This took several months of hiring and training staff, establishing a board of directors, developing a budget, updating bylaws and working with many departments of the university to finalize our service agreements,” she said. The AHEC hosted a simulcast, a simultaneous transmission of the same program, in the Health Professions auditorium on Jan. 25 for CMED and College of Health Professions faculty. At the live event at Saginaw

Valley State University, two nationally renowned speakers focused on enhancing the quality, effectiveness and accountability of care across the continuum. Another current initiative involves working with the AHEC office at Wayne State University to provide afterschool tutoring in math and science and summer camp opportunities for five local high schools. Dentistry and veterans programs are also current priorities for the Mid-Michigan AHEC. While the initial five months of work hasn’t involved interacting with students, Hadden said it is a goal. “Once we meet all of the structural recruitment for the grant and our funders at Wayne State University, we will be more involved in educating students about opportunities in the health careers and the related educational requirements,” Hadden said. Calls made to CMED Dean Ernest Yoder were not returned in time for publication. university@cm-life.com

I really don’t get this huge $$ spectacle Are you ready for some football? Better question: are you ready for five hours of pyrotechnics, strange commercials, disappointing musical performances and a neutral-site football game between two teams that have no geographical connection to this area? If you answered “yes,” Sunday evening was probably a rollicking good time for you. If you answered “no” or “I really don’t care,” we should hang out together. I don’t really understand the Super Bowl. It doesn’t make sense to have a championship game at a neutral site. One of the most thrilling aspects of sports is a raucous home crowd that loves the home team and hates those “away” bastards. The Super Bowl features a less partisan crowd, and the TV broadcast makes it sound like everyone there is indiscriminately cheering like an idiot from the kickoff to the trophy presentation. As a hockey fan, I’m used to the Stanley Cup Finals; a best-of-seven series between two teams that had to win 12 games to get there. Like the World Series, there are home and away games with fans who attend out of passion. Fans just go to the Super Bowl to see a very expensive spectacle. Maybe I’d enjoy the Super Bowl if I watched the rest of the NFL playoffs, but I can’t just pick an arbitrary team and root for them for one game (unless I have a monetary wager.) Every cheer, fist-pump or highfive would be a lie. In a small way, I feel like I’d be cheating on the Detroit Lions. I’m not sure why I’d feel badly about that, since the Lions have been horrible enough over the years to create a legion of Packers fans in Michigan, but I never get excited when teams other than the Red Wings score in a hockey game. But the Super Bowl isn’t really about the football. It’s just an excuse to get together, drink and celebrate American culture (kind of like Thanksgiving.) I’m all for bending the elbow with friends, but I’d rather not pretend I’m celebrating because of a football game. Can’t we just get drunk and watch infomercials? Or maybe we could get drunk and watch VH1 Classic, so we could see now-geriatric rock stars perform in their prime, instead of watching the reanimated corpses of the Rolling Stones or The Who at halftime. Shoot, we could even watch music videos on MTV (or its equivalent channel that actually plays music), if we have a hankering to see pop-stars lip-synching. Maybe my attitude will change if the Lions ever make it past the first round of the playoffs. Let’s be honest, though; I’m not going to live that long. But, in my remaining 60 years, I’m not wasting five hours a year on the Super Bowl. E-mail | editor@cm-life.com Mail | 436 Moore Hall Mount Pleasant, MI 48859 Fax | 989.774.7805

Safe rather than convenient? n light of the Jan. 16 abduction of a Grand Rapids senior in the Student Activity Center

parking lot, new parking lot regulations allowing students to park closer to the SAC during sporting events should be considered.

This could be accomplished through limited parking closest to the Events Center, which is usually reserved for season ticket holders and Chippewa Club members. Though athletics deems those who fall into this category as being valuable to the CMU athletics program, through revenue from donations to the program, these roped off areas are not usually filled to capacity. Rather than holding out hope that a CMU sporting event will draw in a big crowd, why not

encourage car pooling or limiting preferential treatment to those who RSVP ahead of time? The truth is, the proximity of parking spots has been one of the main concerns among some students in going to an athletic event, besides the team’s record. Having to walk 100 yards to your vehicle in the dark after working out just because there’s a sporting event going on next door isn’t exactly fair, or safe. So, with the lack of student attendance and support, are the

Chippewa Club members the most valuable at this point? If a spot is open within five minutes of game time, why can’t students take over a vacant spot 30 feet away from the entrance rather than 100 feet away? In addition to accessibility, safety comes into the discussion as well with students parking further toward the back away from spectators. This campus is small, and only so much can be done for utilizing the parking lots made available, but any minor change could go a long way. Maybe it’s time to look at an additional parking area or facility. Students pay more to this university on a yearly basis than Chippewa Club members or season ticket holders do, so it’s time to start offering students the accommodations at sporting events that those individuals get.

Are you a slave to technology? You wake up and log on to Facebook, scrolling through your news feed long enough to find some inspiration to rise out of bed and stand up. You brush your teeth and go back to your phone because you got a text. Meanwhile, you continue brushing while texting — because you’re good like that. Then you resume getting ready after logging on to Spotify to start playing your favorite songs. Ha, your hair looks funny — better Snapchat that. Log on to Twitter and see if anything, like, important is going on in the world. Send between 15 and 172 more texts throughout the day by consistently looking at your phone in three-minute intervals, even though you know you’d hear it if it went off. Sound familiar? You might be a slave to technology. If your phone goes off, you immediately attend to it. If you leave it at home when you run to the store, you feel naked. If you’re eating a delicious-looking meal, you must Instagram it. Not only that, but it takes five different apps to help you sit through a $1,095-per-semester lecture. For many people, it is a way to feel validated. Every “like” on Facebook makes you feel as if you’re on the right track with life. Every “retweet” makes you feel like what you’re saying is important. Filtered photos, Tumblr confessions, 140-character graphs, Facebook messages — they are all ways technology has a grip on our understanding of what’s important and how we fit into the world. A guy in my class confessed he is diagnosed as addicted to his iPhone. He said this while he had the phone gripped in his palm. I’ll admit, if I don’t have my phone, I feel naked. I will also admit that is the most ridiculous thing ever. I should feel naked when I don’t have clothes on not when I don’t have my phone near me. It’s one addiction that doesn’t seem to have an end. New gadgets and apps and sites are being developed every day. We are living in a technology-based world. Therefore, if you’re going to be addicted, make it a healthy one (if those exist) by using it to your advantage and not for watching YouTube videos until your eyes bleed. But, just like with any “healthy” lifestyle, there are always some exceptions. Commence: cat videos.

CMU Alum Stefanie Baranic talks with the women in charge of the Saudi Arabia booth during the International Expo Sunday afternoon in the Rotunda room at Bovee University Center.

International Expo attracts more than 200 students from more than 24 countries By Ryan Fitzmaurice Staff Reporter

Srikanth Seelam stood in front of his display table, dressed in traditional Indian clothing. He placed his palms together as in prayer, and bowed his head. “This is how we greet each other in India,” India graduate student Seelam said. Three onlookers greeted him back, in a similar fashion. The display tables behind him were overflowing with Indian artifacts, flags, informational posters, cuisine and maps; one showing the 30 different languages that are spoken throughout India. This display was an attempt to capture India’s culture, one, in the words of Seelam, that is made of “one billion people, one billion hearts.” It was one of 24 different displays that made up the International Expo. Deemed the International Student Organization’s biggest event of the year by ISO President Ibrahim Neyazmuhammed, a graduate student from Saudi Arabia, the Expo was a chance for several international cultures on campus to come under one

roof and share their cultures and traditions. About 275 students attended the expo, which was held from noon to 5 p.m. in the University Center Bovee Rotunda Sunday. The event was free and open to the public. Abdulrahman Alfawaz, a freshman from Saudi Arabia, sat on a cushion next to his display table, behind a display of Saudi Arabian foods, including butter coffee, crackers and date cookies. According to Alfawaz, it represented a common scene in the country, not even 100 years ago, when a majority of Saudis still lived in tents. “We want to share our culture and make students familiar with it on campus,” Alfawaz said. Freshman Toktar Alimbekov also shared many of his country’s trademark cuisines, including “Kurt,” a fried, rockhard cheese, that was supposed to be sucked, not eaten. “It’s not like American cheese,” the Kazakhastan native said. “Don’t bite it.” The Expo also featured several presentations from multiple countries and served a hot meal consisting of food from nine different countries.

Freshman Anmar Khalawi of Saudi Arabia performed a traditional Saudi Arabian song on guitar but played it in a non-traditional way. “It’s an Arabic song, except it’s like a mix,” Khalawi said. “I played it the American way, on guitar.” Khalawi said events like this are important to international students around campus. “It allows us to share our culture and support others around campus,” Khalawi said. Matthew Roede, a Kent City freshman, said he came to the event because an international student he sat next to in a class told him about it. “It’s just great to see all these countries that have so many different things going on,” Roede said. “It’s kind of like a race to see all the different stuff.” Neyazmuhammed said the event went better than expected. “We’ve been working on this for four weeks,”Neyazmuhammed said. “... It’s huge for us, because this is a chance for every culture to express itself in the same place.” studentlife@cm-life.com

The city of Mount Pleasant will update its master plan later this year and the work of nine Central Michigan University students will be included. When Xiao Guang Wang, assistant professor of urban planning, transportation and human geography, came to CMU a few years ago, she said she always knew she wanted her students to collaborate with the city. The opportunity finally came last spring for her GEO 531: Integrated Land Use Planning class. “Last year, Jeff Gray (director of planning and community development in Mount Pleasant) sent me an email saying the city was updating the master plan, and the 2010 census data was also just released,” Wang said. “We thought it was a perfect project for the students because they could help participate in the master plan updating process and use

what they had learned in class to help the city.” Gray had previously been to Wang’s classes to give lectures, but this was a chance for students to gain real experience for their final project. The students were split into three groups to look at the breakdown of population, housing and socioeconomic status within Mount Pleasant. The groups were tasked with downloading the newly released census data and completing an analysis and write up of their findings. “The nice thing about the project is that each of the groups had at least one student with a Geographic Information System background,” Wang said. “They could put the data into a program and make maps to see things, like what the population density looked like in an area by age and gender or where owner-occupied housing was.” Gray came into the class a few times during the semester to check on the progress of the

groups and guide them. The class was structured like a consulting firm, Gray said, and the groups received an outline of what Mount Pleasant expected them to come up with from their data. “We didn’t really know what to expect,” Gray said. “When I was in graduate school, I did a project like this, but I’d never led a project like this and it was the first time the professor was able to do a real world project. Overall, we were so pleased with how smoothly it went and the product they produced.” In late April, the groups presented their reports at City Hall to the Planning Commission. Commissioners then decided to adopt the updates provided by the students and will incorporate the reports in the Master Plan when it is finalized. Gray said the master plan is still being worked on and will hopefully be completed by the end of 2013. metro@cm-life.com

Institutional Review Board appoints CMED faculty member as interim coordinator By Kyle Kaminski Senior Reporter

The Institutional Review Board has appointed College of Medicine fixed-term faculty member Leaden Hickman to serve as interim coordinator following leadership changes earlier this month. In accordance with federal requirements, the board was created to oversee institutional research at Central Michigan University, specifically research involving human experimentation. “In the review process, we look at ethical concerns, scientific validity and legality,” Vice President of Research and Sponsored Programs John McGrath said. “The board ensures that humans see no harm in the process of

institutional research.” The coordinator position is generally reserved for board members with the highest level of expertise. According to the news release, Hickman was appointed to join the other 18 board members due to his experience in social, behavioral and biomedical fields. Hickman is a course director for society and community medicine in the College of Medicine. He has held faculty positions at Wayne State University, University of Michigan and Oakland University. Hickman’s experience also includes a Ph.D. and a Master of Science degree in epidemiology and community medicine from Wayne State University. “It’s important to have people from diverse backgrounds,” McGrath said. “There’s likely

to be an increase in human experimentation with the addition of the medical school. (Hickman) was a good choice, because it allows for greater representation from the medical school.” According to section 5-4 of CMU’s administrative policies, under procedures and guidelines, the IRB has full jurisdiction over all human subject research conducted under the auspices of CMU, regardless of the funding source or performance site. McGrath said the IRB handles more than 400 requests for experimentation over the course of the year. It is unclear how many of these requests are approved during any given year. university@cm-life.com

Mid-Michigan Area Health Education Center Beal City High put on lockdown plans forming board, taking regional survey after mother vows to ‘level’ it By Justin Hicks Senior Reporter

Completing a regional survey and creating an advisory board are the future initiatives for the Mid-Michigan Area Health Education Center at Central Michigan University. Executive Director Lisa Hadden leads the program, which was created in 2010 by a federal grant to recruit and train a health care workforce in Michigan. “We believe this program is much-needed, as Michigan is suffering from a shortage of professionals in almost all fields in health care,” Hadden said via email. “We really enjoy our work and believe that our contributions over time will bring something to the table.” The AHEC is a non-profit corporation housed in the College of Medicine at CMU built on three pillars: recruitment, placement and retention. Hadden said the corporation has plans to complete a regional survey to assess the needs and assets that support or create barriers to access to primary care. A regional advisory board encompassing 19 local counties is also on the agenda to assist in following through on the goals of the Mid-Michigan AHEC. “We will also be meeting with the Michigan Works!

Since her resignation as president of the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber of Commerce on July 12, Hadden said she has focused on the foundational work to get the AHEC corporation up and running. “This took several months of hiring and training staff, establishing a board of directors, developing a budget, updating bylaws and working with many departments of the university to finalize our service agreements,” she said. The AHEC hosted a simulcast, a simultaneous transmission of the same program, in the Health Professions auditorium on Jan. 25 for CMED and College of Health Professions faculty. At the live event at Saginaw

Valley State University, two nationally renowned speakers focused on enhancing the quality, effectiveness and accountability of care across the continuum. Another current initiative involves working with the AHEC office at Wayne State University to provide afterschool tutoring in math and science and summer camp opportunities for five local high schools. Dentistry and veterans programs are also current priorities for the Mid-Michigan AHEC. While the initial five months of work hasn’t involved interacting with students, Hadden said it is a goal. “Once we meet all of the structural recruitment for the grant and our funders at Wayne State University, we will be more involved in educating students about opportunities in the health careers and the related educational requirements,” Hadden said. Calls made to CMED Dean Ernest Yoder were not returned in time for publication. university@cm-life.com

Women’s basketball crushed at BGSU

Bennett, ottinger win key matches

By Mark Cavitt Staff Reporter

By Adam Niemi Staff Reporter

In a convincing 25-6 win for Central Michigan wrestling over Old Dominion Sunday, there were two matches that stood out. The first key win for the No. 12 Chippewas was Mike Ottinger, who scored a 10-4 win in the 165 weight-class. CMU had lost two out of three previous matches before Ottinger after winning the first two of the day. Ottinger’s win ensured momentum in CMU’s favor as the they didn’t lose a match the rest of the way. CMU coach Tom Borrelli said Ottinger has been improving all season and scored a lot of points Sunday by wrestling around his opponent Brett Miller’s moves. Borrelli said Ottinger scored points by wrestling Miller’s arms and legs. Ottinger said he was satisfied with the win but, looking back on it, said he wanted a couple takedowns. “I still got to work on my top riding,” Ottinger said. “I felt like I could have held him down a little longer, probably would have broke him. If I work on that, I think it could get easier.” The other key win was No. 2 Ben Bennett in a strong 9-0 win against Austin Coburn. The decisive win for Bennett was an improvement over his 1-0 win last week against Kent State. “I was just trying to score some points, especially after last weekend,” Bennett said. “I was pretty relaxed before the match — felt good.” Borrelli said Bennett wants to dominate each match, but opponents go on the defensive and avoid many of Bennett’s moves, which sometimes frustrates him. “Sometimes, it’s difficult to wrestle a guy like that,” Bennett said. “You work pretty hard in a wrestling match like that. It isn’t what you want — you want to go out there and you want to be in a wrestling situation. Avoiding the wrestling is kind of disappointing. It’s frustrating, but I got to find ways to get around that.” Bennett said his focus on domination may sometimes distract him from his strategies, but he still focuses on one thing at a time. “I got to figure out other ways to take that I normally wouldn’t take maybe, to get the guy’s legs.” sports@cm-life.com

I knew I had to keep that momentum going,” said Borrelli. “Ottinger came out and was focused on attacking, which is what we want. He pushed the pace, wrestled well on his feet and got a lot of takedowns.” The Chippewas didn’t lose any momentum after that and won the rest of the matches, making the final score 25-6. The team is back for senior night Friday when it takes on conference rival Eastern Michigan at 7 p.m. at McGuirk Arena.

Perfect no more. The Central Michigan women’s basketball team lost its first Mid-American Conference game in ugly fashion Sunday afternoon, 84-59, to perennial conference power Bowling Green. Sophomore guard Crystal Bradford didn’t start the game for the Chippewas due to illness but came in soon after the opening tip and got on the board right away with a three-point shot at the 16:09 mark, putting CMU up 10-9, its only lead of the game. Sophomore forward Jas’Mine Bracey got the start for Bradford. Bowling Green’s defense and ability to force turnovers and make three-point shots in crucial moments were the keys to victory for the Falcons. BGSU (14-7, 5-3 MAC) was the first MAC team to score 70-plus points on CMU this season. Head coach Sue Guevara said she wasn’t pleased with the team’s defensive discipline and overall mental preparation for the game. “We had some very poor individual play. I thought mentally we didn’t have some players ready,” Guevara said. “We were not disciplined on defense. I thought we had good ball movement, but we did not finish our shots. You have to take personal responsibility for this and give Bowling Green credit.” Bradford finished with 14 points and nine rebounds, while senior guard Brandie Baker added 14 points to go along with three rebounds. CMU (13-8, 7-1 MAC) shot 42 percent in the game to Bowling Green’s 56 percent, including a gaudy 10-for-18 from three-point range. The Chippewas were six-for-21 from deep. There wasn’t too much going down for CMU against Bowling Green’s zone defense in the first half. The Falcons led 27-18 at the 7:06 mark in the first half. The game started off slowly for both teams offensively, but Bowling Green started getting hot from deep, extending its lead to nine, 24-15, at the 8:01 mark, its largest lead of the half.

The No. 11 Chippewas defeated the Monarchs of Old Dominion University 25-6 to stretch their winning streak to five matches Sunday afternoon at McGuirk Arena. The team hasn’t suffered a defeat in a dual meet since Jan. 12, when it lost to Virginia, 20-13. The Chippewas haven’t lost a dual meet at home this season. There was much more scoring early in the match than there was last week when the Chippewas defeated Kent State. The match was also much closer early. “Early on, guys were pushing the pace more and that’s what I wanted to see,” head coach Tom Borrelli said. “We had a couple of close matches, but, overall, I’m happy with the way we wrestled today.” No. 2 senior Ben Bennett clinched the win for the Chippewas with a 9-0 win over freshman Austin Coburn to give the Chippewas a 19-6 lead.

“I was focused on scoring,” Bennett said. “So, I was a little frustrated when I wasn’t getting points immediately.” No. 5 senior heavyweight Jarod Trice finished the Monarchs off after defeating heavyweight sophomore Matt Tourdot, 2-1. The match began with an upset as CMU junior Joe Roth won 5-2 over No. 14 Jerome Robinson at 125 pounds, making the team score 3-0. Roth never gave the lead to the sophomore Robinson during his match. “Roth is a very capable backup,” Borrelli said. “ So, I figured, why not use

him? Then he got the job done against a pretty good wrestler.” No. 7 senior Scotti Sentes would increase the lead to 6-0 by winning 7-3 against junior Scott Festejo at 133 pounds. After redshirt freshman Luke Smith lost 6-3 to senior Brennan Brumley at 157 pounds, making the score 9-6, sophomore Mike Ottinger put the match in his hands. Ottinger won 10-4 over senior 165-pounder Brett Miller in the match that could have tied up the team score. “I knew my team was doing well,” Ottinger said. “But

Men’s basketball losing streak hits four after 70-61 home loss to Miami By Kristopher Lodes Sports editor

Riding a three-game losing streak and the toughest part of the Mid-American Conference schedule on the horizon, the men’s basketball team needed a win. It didn’t get it Saturday, and Miami (Ohio) left McGuirk Arena with a 70-61 win, and CMU left with a four-game losing streak and matchup at MAC-leader Akron on Tuesday. “Every loss is tough whether you win a few in row or lose,” head coach Keno Davis said. “We have to make sure we keep it in perspective on where our team is at; there was a point a few months before the season that I didn’t know if we’d win four games all year.” The Chippewas struggled offensively in the first half, shooting 26.9 percent from the field and a lowly 36.4 percent

from the free-throw line. But, in the second half, that all changed. CMU shot 42.1 percent in the second half overall and 91.7 percent from the free-throw line, but it wasn’t enough. “That’s just a part of the game, some go and some don’t,” freshman guard Chris Fowler said. “We’ve got great shooters on the team, but even great shooters miss shots.” Freshman forward Blake Hibbitts hit four three-pointers, leading the team to a 31.6 shooting percentage from beyond the arc, for 12 points, but he didn’t hit a single shot in the second half. Senior guard Kyle Randall was strong on the night with a team-leading 20 points. “Overall, we improved, but we actually went down with the three-point percentage,” Davis said. “We’re trying to build around those shooters, and, when those shots don’t go down, it’s tough (to win).”

CMU’s lack of a post presence on defense has hurt the team all season. Senior center Zach Saylor, who missed a portion of the season with a knee injury, fixed that problem early on with three blocks before the first media timeout. In fact, coming into the game, defense was a problem for both the RedHawks and the Chippewas, who are ranked at the bottom of the MAC in defense. “In those first five minutes, our defense presence was good,” Davis said. Miami struggled in the first half from the field and freethrow line but improved from the field in the second half, shooting 47.6 percent. Heading into the game, both teams controlled the ball well with good distributors in junior guard Quinten Rollins for the RedHawks and freshman guard Chris Fowler for CMU. A MEN’S BASKETBALL | 8

[Sports] men’s basketball

Riding four-game skid, CMU travels to red-hot Akron Tuesday Jeff Papworth Staff Reporter

Kyle Randall needs help Senior guard Kyle Randall cannot do it all for the men’s basketball team. He must not be the only player that Central Michigan can count on. But if that continues to be the case, look for the Chippewas to continue their downward spiral. Their 8-6 record is now long gone, and the 9-12 record is what they’re dealt after losing six of their last seven games. In their 70-61 loss to Miami, it was all much of the same. Randall scored 14 of the last 23 points that CMU tallied in the second half. Afterward, head coach Keno Davis tried to keep it in perspective, saying he did not know if the Chippewas would win four games this year at one point before the season. But Randall surprised and helped CMU pull off a few close wins in the non-conference schedule and raised expectations. To return to success, Randall needs a running mate badly, and there are at least a few candidates for the position who could possibly be ready by time the conference tournament rolls around. The first player to look at is freshman forward Blake Hibbitts. He seemed to be etching his place as the second player Central Michigan could count on in the first half Saturday night. He was dropping three-pointers with ease. At one point in the game, he faked as if he was going to pass it but launched the shot, knocking down his second-straight threepointer to make it 12-8 CMU midway through the first half. He would make two more from beyond the arc before halftime. But, in the second half, he vanished, not scoring a point. In the last minute of the game, he had two shots from the three-point line that could have pulled CMU within reach, but they were both missed. Another player to look at is obvious, and that is freshman guard Chris Fowler. He continues to impress with his passing skills. He is eight assists away from breaking the freshman record with 108. When he starts scoring more points, he will be a nightmare for the MAC. Lastly, there is senior guard Finis Craddock. He is not a player who can vie to be the go-to guy next year when Randall is gone like the other two; his time is now or never. Normally, it is an enormous reach for a player in his last year to make a leap in scoring at the end of the season, but he has improved throughout this year and has much more to learn in the last month or so in Davis’ system. The standard for the whole season, as it was after the RedHawks game, is that they just need to keep getting better. If one of the three players not only improves little by little but makes major strides and aids Randall, then maybe — just maybe — they can surprise MAC teams in March like they are hoping. sports@cm-life.com

By Jeff Papworth Staff Reporter

The men’s basketball team faces long odds as it travels to Akron for a game at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Central Michigan has lost four-straight games, while the Zips have won their last 13. In Akron’s last game Saturday, it defeated Ohio, a 2012 Sweet 16 team, to take hold of first place in the Mid-American Conference. The Zips are most difficult to beat at home, boasting an 11-0 record at James A. Rhodes Arena. This is bad news for CMU, which is 1-7 on the road. Akron is led by a group of six upperclassmen who are the team’s top six scorers. Senior center Zeke Marshall and junior forward Demetrius Treadwell are both averaging double figures in points per game with 13 and 10.8, respectively. Marshall is known for blocking shots as well, with 3.65 per game, the fifth best average in the country. Marshall will look to go 4-0 against the Chippewas in his career. CMU is 13-27 against Akron all-time, with its last win in 2008. CMU started the season

with a 7-6 non-conference record, but it has gone downhill since. They are 2-6 in the conference with wins over Ball State and Bowling Green. “We just need to get better, stay focused and keep coming out working hard every day. That’s what we strive to do,” senior guard Kyle Randall said after Saturday’s loss to Miami. “You want to be playing your best basketball in March.” Their weaknesses lies in field goal percentage offense and defense. CMU allows teams to make 46.9 percent their shots, 324th in the nation. In field goal percentage offense, it ranks 307th, making 40 percent of their shots. “We need to make more shots and get more defenKaitlin Thoresen/Staff Photographer sive stops,” Randall said. “It’s something we need to Freshman guard Chris Fowler tries to dribble past Miami guard Geovonie McKnight Saturday night at McGuirk Arena.

Gymnastics team wins MichiganIllinois Challenge By Cody DeBona Staff Reporter

No. 23 Central Michigan and Eastern Michigan gymnastics teamed up to take on Illinois State and the University of IllinoisChicago in the MichiganIllinois Challenge in Chicago Saturday night. Despite the Michigan against Illinois pairing, all team scores were counted separately, with the winner taking the trophy home for its state. The Chippewas outscored all teams with a score of 195.875. Illinois State was second with a score of 194.1, while EMU was third at 192.850 and UIC was last with a score of 192.8. The meet was the CMU’s second-straight quad meet and third-straight away from home. Away meets eliminate a whole day of practice; therefore, it is vital for great practices. “We had an intense, almost grueling week of practice,” head coach Jerry Reighard said. “They responded very well to the harsh practices.” CMU set its highest score of the season, eclipsing its previous high by .825. After recording two scores in an event 49.0 or higher, it was apparent that the Chippewas were out to send a message after last weekend’s third-place finish. Freshman Kirsten Petzold scored a 9.9 in vault, a new career high. Sophomore Kylie Fagan also scored a career-best 9.875 on beam. “Fagan had a great day. She anchored in two events and scored great scores,” Reighard said. “I get very excited when I

think about our future.” Junior Brittany Petzold also put up great numbers in vault and floor, despite coming off of a shoulder injury. Her injury restricted her from competing in bars, but, after only competing in one event in her last meet, she is showing good signs of recovery. “Brittany’s shoulder just wasn’t where it needed to be; she went out and earned a great vault score for us,” Reighard said. Although CMU eventually won by a big margin, it did not lead the entire meet. “We had good numbers, but they weren’t what I expected; we only had stuck one landing,” Reighard said. “There was gulp going to beam; there is only four inches to work with. We ignored the crown, and the train kept rolling.” The Michigan-Illinois Challenge is a different type of meet than others for CMU. Although representing Michigan with EMU, the Chippewas were working individually to not only better themselves but to capitalize on the championship-like format of the quad meet. “The challenge is a really fun atmosphere,” Reighard said. “The meet is very competitive, and it really showed tonight.” The Chippewas had at least one gymnast in the top three of every event with Fagan finishing first of 24 in both of her events. CMU’s next meet is Friday when it hosts MidAmerican Conference foe Northern Illinois at 7 p.m. at McGuirk Arena. sports@cm-life.com

WOmen’s basketball | continued from 7 Senior forward Jessica Schroll and junior Jessica Green both struggled early to get in an offensive rhythm, but, eventually, both led the Chippewas in points at the half with six. Baker also had six points. Bowling Green held the MAC’s best offense to only 30 points at the half. Bradford got CMU to within five, 27-22, after a fast break basket at the 3:10 mark. Green then got the Chippewas to within one after a drive to the basket layup with

just under two minutes to go in the half to make it 27-26. Bowling Green led 34-30 at the half. While CMU shot 48.1 percent in the first half, it had 13 turnovers to only two assists. The Falcons committed eight turnovers and had more points off turnovers than the Chippewas. Bradford started the second half for the Chippewas and scored the first basket of the half. A three-point shot and a foul allowed BGSU senior guard Chirssy Steffen to complete a four-point play,

putting the Falcons up 11, 4332, at the 17:05 mark. Offensively, Bowling Green kept up the pace going on a 13-4 run over the first 4:41 of the second half to push the scare to 47-34. Bowling Green led by as many as 28 points late in the game. Turnovers hurt the Chippewas in the second half as Bowling Green was able to take advantage and score points. CMU had 21 turnovers in the game. The Chippewas will look to bounce back at Ball State on Thursday. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. sports@cm-life.com

Sprinter Ethan Lievense finishes 5th at Notre Dame, Alex Rose 9th at ‘elite’ Findlay By Malachi Barrett Staff Reporter

The Central Michigan men’s track and field team returned to action this weekend, competing in the Meyo Invitational in South Bend, Indiana. Only a select few athletes were sent to the meet at Notre Dame, while members of the throwing corps competed separately at the University of Findlay. At Notre Dame, more than 49 other schools participated in the invitational, including LSU, Gerogia, Florida and others from all over the country. Going into this weekend, CMU hoped to use the intense competitive atmosphere to simulate the conditions of the Mid-American Conference championships. The high level of talent provided a challenge for the CMU distance runners and sprinters. “Overall, we had a lot of solid marks moving us forward. Obviously, we had more qualifiers this weekend, moving us up in the conference,” director of track and field Willie Randolph said. In the 5,000 meters,

sophomore Ethan Lievense finished fifth with a MAC championship-qualifying time of 14:30.02. Close behind was sophomore Kyle Stacks, who took 10th with a time of 14:35.74, which was also good enough to qualify. The young distance duo has been qualifying for their events week after week and have now qualified for the MAC Indoor Championships in the mile, the 3,000 meters and the 5,000 meters. The CMU distance runners are a young group made up of mostly sophomores, with only three seniors and one junior running distance events. These young athletes represent the team as a whole: young, improving and hungry. “We have a ton of guys coming in really strong for us,” Lievense said. “Guys like Nate Ghena and Monte Scott, who have only been here for a couple years and haven’t had a very prominent high school experience, so they’re coming in and really pushing Kyle and I and the rest of the sophomores on the team. It’s great that you’ve got that push on your back reminding you that you’ve got to be working hard

men’s basketball | continued from 7 Fowler ended the night with seven assists, giving him 108 on the season, one shy of a single-season record for a freshman. “My role is to get the guys the ball,” Fowler said. “If that’s the case and I’m that close to the record, then I have to give all the credit to the team.”

Davis needed something to spark his team, and he turned to freshman guard Derrick Richardson Jr., who got his first start of the season over sophomore guard Austin Keel, who started the first 20 games of the season. Richardson entered the game shooting 45 percent from the field and 33 percent

everyday.” Junior sprinter Ross Parsons had his first MAC qualifying mark of the season in the 60-meter dash with a time of 6.90 seconds. He finished eighth in the semifinal race, which was not high enough to continue to the finals. Freshman hurdler Ziemowit Dutkiewicz took 10th in the 500-meter dash with a time of 1:05.13. With the large number of elite athletes in the running events, many Chippewas were kept off the podium in South Bend. In Findlay, Ohio, the CMU throwers competed at the Findlay Open to gain experience at a meet with better competition. The throwers are led by senior and reigning MAC discus champion Alex Rose. Rose threw in the shot put “elite” competition at Findlay, finishing ninth with a throw of 54-02.00. Junior Calvin Jackson threw in the men’s weight throw on Friday. He did not place in the event but qualified for MAC championships with a heave of 57-03.00.

The annual Meyo Invitational at the University Of Notre Dame was a competition unlike any the Central Michigan University women’s track and field team has seen yet this season. With more than 80 universities from across the United States and Canada competing at the Loftus Center in South Bend, Indiana, it was an increase in overall competition for the Chippewas. This heightened competition did not faze CMU and, according to track and field director Willie Randolph, did not cause any lack of effort. “Overall, we had a lot of solid marks moving us forward,” Randolph said. “Obviously, we had more qualifiers this weekend, moving us up in the conference.” At a two-day meet with so many individuals and events taking place, it can be difficult for athletes to stay focused and remain goal-oriented. This was something that Randolph stressed to his team in preparation for the Meyo Invite. One standout was senior distance runner Maddie Ribant, who qualified by finishing 14th out of 59 in the 5,000 meters with a time of 17:07.72, File Photo by Chuck Miller setting a personal record in Sophomore hurdler Bridget Doughty, left, leaps the final hurdle during the women’s the process. 60 meter hurdle on Friday, Jan. 11 at Jack Skoog Indoor Track as part of the CMU Junior Krista Parks also open.
