Substance report results surprising by Kallie Red-Horse Daily Lobo
A UNM office released a survey last week that contradicts common perceptions regarding substance abuse among college students. The Campus Office of Substance Abuse Prevention released, “College Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug Use in New Mexico,” a study that for the first time surveyed students at five four-year institutions and two two-year institutions in New Mexico. The survey examined college substance abuse habits, including use of marijuana and drunk driving. Also, much emphasis was placed on the consequences of binge drinking, such as the correlation between dropping out and binge drinking. Jill Anne Yeagley, program manager of UNM’s Campus Office of Substance Abuse Prevention, said college students do not abuse substances as excessively as is widely believed. “People think that college students are drinking and using drugs a lot more than they actually are,” she said. “If you go to a party, you don’t notice the person who is not drinking alcohol. It doesn’t really click like ‘oh geez, that person is really drinking moderately.’ However, you notice Joe over there who is getting really sloppy drunk. Those kinds of
things really feed into the perception that you go to a party and everybody is drinking a lot. Some students will see the statistics and it will be an eye opener.” The survey found that 41 percent of New Mexico college students binge drink “frequently,” defined as consuming two or more drinks more than once in a two-week period. Yeagley said she was pleased to see that the report reflected UNM’s efforts to reduce drunk driving. “We have been working more intensely than some of the other schools about using a designated driver, that there are a lot of checkpoints going on and don’t even chance it kind of information,” she said. “We found that UNM had a higher percentage of students that indicated that they did that than the other schools and we had the highest percentage of students who said their friends would disapprove of them driving after drinking.” Even though the report did not distinguish between schools, COSAP had access to institution-specific information, Yeagley said. Despite some positive statistics — especially relating to drunk driving — there were some troubling trends shown in the report, said John Steiner, project director behind the report. “We had a 41 percent binge drinking rate,” he said. “It’s a little higher than we’d like to see it.

drinking is the cut off between social, moderate drinking and the drinking that brings about and starts to create problems.” The report will hopefully aid students, Steiner said, by helping them make informed decisions. “Here at COSAP, we don’t try to tell students what to do with their personal lives,” he said. “But we do try to make information available so students can make intelligent decisions and allow them to understand the aid and ideas and other ways for them to either explore their drinking or reduce that risk.” The strong negative correlation between grade-point average and average drinks per week should influence students to drink less, Yeagley said. “In general, the students that are drinking the most heavily are the students with the worst GPAs,” she said. “That is just some of the information about looking at alcohol-related consequences that would be useful for students to look at and be aware of. It could perhaps enlighten and encourage some people to change behavior a little bit.” The similarity between NMSU and UNM was unexpected, Steiner said. “Everybody calls New Mexico State ‘the party school,’” he said. “It’s a little surprising to find out there is

Campus memorial held for student killed in crash by Pat Lohmann Daily Lobo
Zach Gould/ Daily Lobo Ashley Forsythe’s sister, Danisha Goldberg, and father, Rod, hold hands during Ashley’s memorial in Northrop Hall on Friday. Forsythe was killed Dec. 18 by a suspected drunk driver.
Daily Lobo volume 114
People who knew Ashley Forsythe said she was a quiet, studious woman until you got to know her. And her mother, Christine, said Ashley’s passion for science and geology showed up at a young age. She said the precocious toddler was always caught with rats stuffed in her pockets and rocks bouncing around in her backpack. “Our house is full of rocks now that we don’t know what to do with,” Christine said. Forsythe, 20, was killed by a suspected drunk driver Dec. 18 near Cuba, NM. Her family, friends and professors — and even a couple administrators — gathered in Northrop Hall on Friday to celebrate the geology student’s life. Provost Suzanne Ortega presented Ashley’s parents with a Bachelor’s of Science — a degree she all but earned before her last semester at UNM. “This symbolizes the honors she so appropriately deserves,” Ortega said. In addition to the degree, John Geissman, chair of Earth and Planetary Sciences, gave Ashley’s parents strands of green and yellow cords — Forsythe would have graduated with departmental honors, as well.

“It really is my pleasure to be here with you today,” he said, trying not to cry. “Ashley earned this with her hard work and dedication.” Room 105 in Northrop Hall has a plaque on the wall dedicated to Ashley. It states, “In memory of Ashley Forsythe, who dreamed of studying volcanoes.” After the degrees were presented, more than 30 people in the Northrop classroom broke into small groups, tossing around memories of Ashley they hold dear. “She’ll be missed and she was the light that lit up every class that you were in,” Ashley’s high school friend, Melissa Dosanjh said. And her grandmother, Joyce Yasym, said Ashley’s funeral drew almost 500 attendees. She’s never seen the church that full, she said. “We never forget, but our days keep going,” she told a group of family friends. “Life is so fragile. It really is.” Her father, Rod, said Ashley’s passion for geology and volcanoes was evident when she would come home after school. “We had to tell her to slow down and use regular English,” he said. “She was using words we didn’t know.” Ashley’s professor, Maya Elrick, said she always sat in the front row

Student veterans have benefits by Andrew Beale Daily Lobo
Congressman Martin Heinrich was not on campus Friday to speak. He was there to listen. Heinrich met with student veterans and representatives of the UNM Veterans Resource Center to gather information on scholarship programs for Veterans. Andres Lazo, an undergraduate student veteran, said he’s confident Heinrich will address the issues faced by student veterans in New Mexico. “I really felt like representative Heinrich was here to listen, and that’s a big deal because, you know, when they listen to you, they really know that you’re important,” he said. At the end of the meeting, Heinrich said he gained a lot of useful information and ideas to help
improve access to scholarship programs for veterans. “I wrote down a bunch of things that we’re going to go through and see if any of those make sense for either legislative initiatives, or just things we can do out of our office,” he said. Heinrich said the veterans he spoke with at the meeting told him they often aren’t aware of the benefits available to them. “One of the things I got out of this is that there are a lot of folks out there who have earned benefits through their service to this country — who don’t even necessarily know about this — that there’s oftentimes no standardized way that they find out what the benefits that they’ve earned are,” he said. “We need to do a better job of connecting with folks.” Elise Wheeler, director of the UNM Veterans Resource Center,
said there are two principle funding options available to veterans: the Chapter 33 Post-9/11 GI Bill for undergraduates and Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program for graduate students. The Chapter 33 bill pays for up to 100 percent of undergraduate studies, depending on how much time a person spent in the service, Wheeler said. In order to be eligible for the Yellow Ribbon scholarship, a student needs to qualify for 100 percent of the Chapter 33 bill, she said. Wheeler said there will be 25 Yellow Ribbon scholarships available for the 2010-11 school year. Five of these will go to students studying law, five to students at the Anderson Graduate School and 15 for general graduate studies. The Veterans Resource Center is working to gain funding for a

not much difference in binge drinking and drinks per week between UNM and NMSU.” Student William Johnson said he is curious to see if the study’s findings mirror his own experiences. “I would look just to find out what the numbers were, just to know the statistics,” he said. “Initially, I’m inclined to think it is a high percentage but it may be lower, maybe not as many people drink as I would assume.” The goals of the report — to both gather and distribute information to students and public officials — were accomplished, Steiner said.
news in brief
LAS VEGAS — A police officer’s badge may have saved his life when it stopped a bullet during an exchange of gunfire in North Las Vegas. Police say the 31-year-old officer was patrolling just before 10 p.m. Saturday when he heard shots being fired in an apartment complex. While investigating, the officer came upon a person with a gun who opened fire. The officer returned fire and was hit. But the bullet hit the badge, and the officer suffered only minor injuries. The person with the gun fled. Police continued to search Sunday for the suspect, who might also be injured. The injured police officer’s name was not immediately released. LOS ANGELES — Authorities say two men suspected of robbing a street-corner Valentine’s Day gift stand in Los Angeles were killed early Sunday in a car crash after leading police on a chase. Police Lt. Samuel Rhone says the men stole gift baskets and cash from a street vendor near downtown. The
“What we are seeing gave us reasons to work harder in some areas and gave us reasons to think that our students are pretty smart,” he said. “They are making some pretty darn smart decisions about their habits around drugs and alcohol in a large majority of the cases.” The New Mexico institutions who participated in the survey were two-year institutions including the Southwest Indian Polytechnic Institute and San Juan College and four-year institutions including, UNM, NMSU, Eastern New Mexico University and Western New Mexico University. victim called police and officers located their car nearby, which sped away. The suspects crashed into a parked vehicle and were thrown from the car. Both were pronounced dead at the scene. They were not immediately identified. WASHINGTON— What could be worse than health care overhaul? No health care overhaul. It’s anybody’s guess whether President Barack Obama’s health remake will survive in Congress. But there’s no doubting the consequences if lawmakers fail to address the problems of costs, coverage and quality: surging insurance premiums, more working families without coverage, bigger out-ofpocket bills, a Medicare prescription gap that grows wider and deeper, and government programs that pay when people get sick but do little to keep them healthy. “They complained, ‘If you pass this bill, prices will go up,’” said Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., who helped shape the Senate Democrats’ bill. “Well, you don’t pass it, and prices will still go up.”

LAST WEEK’S POLL RESULTS:
Sarah Palin was quoted at a recent Tea Party rally saying that President Obama was a “charismatic guy with a teleprompter.” During this speech she was photographed with notes written on her hand. She also publicly took offense when Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel called a particular liberal group, “f-ing retards.” In an interview shortly after, she defended Rush Limbaugh, who said the exact same thing about the exact same group. How do you explain the recent contradictions? Out of 107 total responses With the last presidential upset, Palin has lost touch with reality on purpose, 58% propelling herself deeper into conservative talking points. Palin is absolutely right. Rush Limbaugh is a satirist and Rahm Emanuel is in public office. There should 21% be a distinction between their public comments. This is of no shock. Palin needs to side 15% with Rush — she owes him. Palin is being unfairly portrayed by the media.
THIS WEEK’S POLL:
The top five health insurers have obtained a 56 percent gain in profits in the past year. This news comes as somewhat of a contradiction, being that 2.7 million Americans have lost their coverage during the recession. Health Care for America NOW, the organization who conducted the study, said, “Insurers will — perversely — try and blame the economy for their record-breaking fortunes.” Do you feel this news changes the debate of health care?
Yes, it is obvious health care companies are purposely making health care coverage an extremely expensive and rare commodity on purpose. IYes, any industry that is making extreme profits in the middle of a recession should be examined. No, this is Democratic Party propaganda. No, free market dictates that if the insurance companies are doing something that doesn’t benefit the population, people will fix it with buying choice power.

LETTERS Evangelist should incorporate softer approach to preaching Editor, I would like to say a few words in reaction to our recent religious guest, Shawn the Baptist. I am also writing in response to a recent opinion letter by Steve Brown called “Fireand-brimstone preacher was just speaking the truth,” where Mr. Brown claims that Shawn the Baptist is in fact lovingly trying to protect us from our own ignorance. I feel that Shawn the Baptist is a man who enterprises off of our attention for personal satisfaction and that if he were genuinely interested in our spiritual well-being as overstressed college students, or in the eternal consequences of our moral nature, he would work on changing the way he brings the Bible to UNM. He talks to us much the same way in which I’m sure he imagines that some of the older
saints spoke: the righteous preacher, up on the higher ground, trying desperately to talk some gentle sense to the jeering heathen masses. So, by embodying this delusion, I feel that he, and his message, become effectively unapproachable, condescending and archaic. A street corner preacher of doom is what he is, nothing more. I will suggest a different approach, if I may, that Shawn the Baptist may use in reaching our “generation of vipers.” Respectful and civilized debate, organized on campus, where people who want to participate can come with books on philosophy and religious texts and take turns in the discussion. Instead, this man comes to our University holding a sign covered in dirty words, and without really listening to us, tells us all day long about how we are each intellectually, morally and, above all, spiritually wrong. I think that these upsetting sideshow spectacles only serve to make even spiritual students feel alienated and put off by organized religion.
Respectful debate is, has been, and always will be the best way of spreading a point of view. If implemented correctly it might even help take some of the insane cruelty out of Shawn the Baptist’s rhetoric: that God hates us, eternal damnation in punishment for homosexuality and the notion (spewed directly to a couple of female UNM students) that women should “study in silence.” And as far as genuine concern for our spiritual well-being goes, I think that the exact words of Christ differ somewhat from the passages that Shawn the Baptist drags out of the Old Testament. “Love your neighbor as you love yourself” and “let him who is without sin cast the first stone” rise directly to mind, neither of which are embodied well in Shawn the Baptist’s unkind sermons. These sermons apparently only serve to piss everyone off within earshot, which, of course, seems to be the point.
properly insure it. That is not possible in Haiti. It’s not offered and couldn’t be afforded by the average Haitian. When Katrina, Wilma et al. approached the coast, people were told to evacuate the day before. Many boarded up their homes and businesses and left. Many chose not to. Haitians were not warned of an impending earthquake and could do nothing to help themselves. In the aftermath of the gulf hurricanes American greed came through like a champ. People who were nowhere near New Orleans filed claims. The fraud, waste and abuse by residents and non-residents will never be known. Our own government contributed with their trailer park in the middle of no utilities or services. In Haiti, most help services are being controlled by the Red Cross and non-governmental agencies. Haiti has plenty of corruption and theft too. If you lived in New Orleans, you probably had family somewhere who could help you financially with housing, household items or clothes. If you lived in Haiti, you have no support, no help. Your relatives, unless they’re here
in the United States, are barely hanging on themselves. They’re in no position to help. I cannot convey the poverty in Haiti in February 2008. Many of those trying to make a $3-a-day living on the street are doing so by going to the dump, picking out bald tires and stained, mildewed mattresses, dragging them back to town and trying to sell them. There was no infrastructure before the earthquakes. When I saw videos of the streets after the earthquakes I commented they looked much the same: trash, debris piled everywhere, streets torn up. I always feel a strong desire to help those who can’t help themselves but try to anyway. However, when people make choices, sometimes several bad choices, and put themselves in a bad situation, I’m less charitable. While there was need after the hurricanes on the coast, some of it was created by poor choices. And there were a lot more options for coastal dwellers by virtue of insurance, family connections and a healthy state and federal government Much more than that afforded to Haitians with really, literally, nothing.

Irresponsible victims are undeserving of disaster aid Editor, In response to the column written by Zach Gould, entitled “The bandwagon of devastation relief donations,” published on Feb. 9: I’d like to give you my explanation why I gave (and am still giving) money to help Haitians and did not give money to help the relief effort in New Orleans. First, I’ve spent time in both places. While I’ve only vacationed in New Orleans, I spent a week in Haiti in February 2008. It was an Inland Press trip sponsored by Haiti’s ambassador to the United States, Ray Joseph and his wife. We met with media representatives, local and regional politicians, people working with non-governmental agencies providing aid, musicians and clerics. I read books before and after my trip. New Orleans is in the United States. That simple fact affords people living and doing business there and elsewhere in Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida and other states threatened by hurricanes, the ability to buy health, property and flood insurance. If you own a home or business, it’s common sense to

Forsythe from page 1 during “Sedimentology and Stratigraphy,” an upper-level geology course. She said she always carried a paperback book and was a serious, somber student. Family and friends passed around a leather-bound green book, writing letters to Ashley and her survivors. “To Ashley’s family,” one such letter began written by friend Bill Brown, “I can’t tell you how sorry I am for your loss. Ashley was a great person and she was always a friendly
face at times when I really needed to see a friendly face.” Ashley’s friend, Chris Vardeman, wrote a letter to Ashley as well. “You were one of the most genuine, sincere and passionate people I knew,” he said in the letter. Almost two months ago, Ronald Martinez, 36, was driving south with his lights turned off in the northbound lane on State Road 550 when he collided with Forsythe’s Ford Ranger, according to a statement

them, as they are in the general population because of their experiences. The peer mentoring will help reacquaint them with academic processes, which can be very confusing if you’ve been out for a while.” Heinrich gave one concrete idea for immediately improving the number of veterans who know about the scholarships. He said his office created a manual for veterans, detailing the resources available to them, and the meeting gave
him an idea for how to distribute it more widely. “Our veterans’ guide we put together in our office is a big PDF, and the Veterans Resource Center has the e-mails of all the people who’ve come in and signed up for their help,” he said. “We could be e-mailing that to every one of those folks, and then they have the resource guide in their e-mail.”

Professor suspected of fatal shooting rampage by Kristin M. Hall
The Associated Press HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — An Alabama professor accused of shooting six colleagues was vocal in her resentment over being denied tenure and the looming loss of her teaching post, though relatives and students said she had never suggested she might become violent. Not even Amy Bishop’s husband knew she might turn violent, according to the man’s father. Everyone from family and friends to her students at the University of Alabama in Huntsville said the intelligent and at times awkward teacher seemed normal in the hours before police say she opened fire in a faculty meeting Friday afternoon, leaving three dead and another three wounded. Jim Anderson — the father of Bishop’s husband, James Anderson — told The Associated Press on Sunday his son had no idea Bishop was planning the bloodshed of which she has been accused. “He knew nothing. He didn’t know anything,” the father said. He said that the police had spoken with his son at length and that “they are doing a good job.” Indeed, there were many things Bishop apparently did not reveal to those around her. In 1986, Bishop shot and killed her 18-year-old brother with a shotgun at their Braintree, Mass., home. She told police at the time that she had been trying to learn how to use the gun, which her father had bought for protection, when it accidentally
discharged. Authorities released her and said the episode was a tragic accident. She was never charged, though police Chief Paul Frazier on Saturday questioned how the investigation was handled. Some of Bishop’s colleagues, including William Setzer, chairman of the department of chemistry, told The Associated Press they did not know about her brother’s death. Police say the gun she’s accused of using wasn’t registered, and investigators don’t know how or where she got it. Bishop, who has four children, was arrested soon after the shooting and charged with capital murder. Other charges are pending. Her husband was detained and questioned by police but has not been charged. James Anderson said his wife had an attorney but would not say who it was. He declined further comment to The Associated Press on Sunday. However, he told the Chronicle of Higher Education earlier in the day that he had no idea his wife had a gun — nor did he know of any threats or plans to carry out the shooting when he dropped her off at the faculty meeting Friday. Just after the shooting, Anderson told the Chronicle, she called and asked him to pick her up. She never mentioned the shooting, he said. Even in the days and hours before the shooting, Bishop’s friends, colleagues and students said she was acting like the intelligent — but odd — professor they knew.

11 points against the Utes, said it was difficult for the Lobos without Beggin on the floor. “We knew playing without Amy, that some of us would have to step up,” Jackson said. “(We had to) hit some shots and play some good defense and Amy is a big part of this team, but we just couldn’t hit shots at the end.” This was yet another game that UNM led at halftime, and the Lobos couldn’t close out the contest. The Lobos only hit 23.1 percent of their shots in the second half, just 6-of-26. At the other end, the Utes seemed smarter and took higherpercentage shots, resulting in a 40 percent second-half field goal clip, even though the Lobos took 15 more shots in the game than did the Utes.

Jackson missed a last second 3-point attempt that could have sent the game into overtime. “It’s hard for me to figure out, as far as getting them more confident shooting better,” Flanagan said. “We just haven’t had anybody, and I don’t say anybody ever, but of the close games, we haven’t had anyone step and not get a shot in. Of course, missing Amy, you have to think that we played a pretty decent game, because we could have had fewer turnovers and another 3-point shooter.”

with another desperation shot, but the constant variable — another loss. All this, though, came to a head at the Mountain West Conference Tournament. Looking to redeem herself, Beggin had an opportunity to put the Lobos up three in the waning seconds of the semifinals of the MWC Tournament, but inexplicably the 88 percent free-throw shooter watched both her attempts rim out. At the other end, Warburton sunk a running floater, propelling the Utes to an 5655 victory. The trend is welldocumented. In sinister fashion, UNM traveled on Jan. 12 to face a depleted Utah squad, one who had lost Warburton to graduation. The results, however, were painfully familiar. UNM mysteriously couldn’t hit a shot the entire second half, going 3-of28, 0-of-7 in the last three minutes, and allowing Utah to stage a comeback after being down as much as 14 in the first half. End result: 46-40 Utes. Fast-forward to Saturday. Tied at 49 apiece, forward Jessica Kielpinski missed a fivefoot layup with 38 seconds left, and, like always, the Lobos were members of a bereaved club. The explanation In the most primitive sense, Brandi Fink, a clinical psychologist and UNM research scholar, said the Lobos could
potentially chalk up their struggles against Utah to a “self-fulfilling prophecy.” The grounds for the self-fulfilling prophecy are based on positive feedback, or a “relationship between belief and behavior,” said David Witherington, UNM associate professor of psychology. Explaining how we conceptualize behavior, Fink said behavior is looked at in an A-B-C pattern, where A is the antecedent of the behavior, B is the behavior exhibited and C is the consequence of the behavior. Or in basketball terms, since the three previous games were decided by a combined seven points, UNM expected the game to be close (the antecedent). That being the case, the Lobos played in a fashion conditioned to suit hotly contested games (the behavior), and, in the end, lost (the consequence). “It is possible that the Lady Lobos’ first loss to Utah set the stage for their subsequent losses,” Fink said in an e-mail on Saturday. “Utah has become an antecedent for positive punishment and may signal something like, ‘When we’ve been in this situation before, we played as hard as we could and we still lost.’” Fink said it’s entirely possible that the players aren’t even aware that they’re engaging in such behavior. “Even though the brain is in-
volved in all of these behavioral steps, one does not need to be overtly conscious of it for it to be occurring,” she said. “We don’t have to engage in any self-talk or verbal behavior with ourselves to have these processes playing themselves out, although doing so sometimes amplifies the consequence.” Alternatively, Witherington said he’d need definite evidence to conclude that was the case. “The fact that they’ve lost by such a close margin wouldn’t necessarily suggest they believe they’ll lose,” Witherington said. “They could just as readily believe that they’re always close enough to win.” Loosely tied to self-fulfilling prophecy is the idea of trauma serving as a cue to bringing past experiences to the forefront of a person’s brain, thereby affecting their mood state. On the issue of whether close losses constitute a less taxing level of trauma, Witherington said events aren’t inherently traumatic. “It all depends on how the individual appraises the event in terms of their beliefs, desires and goals,” he said. “For some people, a close loss hurts the most — it’s easier to be blown out. For others, a close loss could signal a lesser trauma.” Whether the Lobos are cognizant of it, there is something psychologically amiss when Utah is on the itinerary.
Two-game road sweep pushes team atop of MWC by Doug Alden
The Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY — After starting the Mountain West Conference season at the bottom of the standings, No. 15 New Mexico is on top headed into the final stretch. The Lobos outlasted Utah 68-65 in overtime on Saturday night, extending their winning streak to nine with a rare victory in Salt Lake City. “We’re just real confident,” said Roman Martinez, whose 3-pointer late in overtime put the Lobos up for good after several Utah comebacks. “We always respect our opponent, but I think we’re playing confident now and more calm than we used to be.” Martinez finished with 15 points and added a crucial offensive rebound in overtime that allowed the Lobos (23-3, 9-2) to extend the lead to five and finish off the Utes (11-13, 4-6). Dairese Gary scored 19 and Darington Hobson finished with 11 assists, 10 rebounds and eight points for New Mexico. A.J Hardeman finished with a career-high 12 rebounds as the Lobos controlled the boards 45-36 and Philip McDonald added 13 points. New Mexico led most of the game but could never pull away by much. It was only the Lobos’ second win here in their last 21 visits. Marshall Henderson scored 21 and Carlon Brown had 18 points for
Utah, including a 3-pointer to tie it at 60 with about 2 seconds left in regulation. “It just seems like it always goes like that with New Mexico,” Brown said. “You just wish you could have won it and wish that you had gotten some calls to go the other way, but that’s just how our season has been going.” New Mexico was coming off a win at UNLV — another place the Lobos have traditionally struggled — and escaped the daunting twogame road trip still alone in first place in the Mountain West. The Lobos haven’t lost since opening the conference season 0-2. “That’s really big — coming on the road and getting two wins,” said Hardeman, who just missed out on a double-double with nine points. The Lobos came dangerously close to leaving Utah in a first-place tie with BYU after going just 10 for 28 in the second half and missing six of 13 foul shots. The poor shooting allowed Utah to stay close and force overtime. “We didn’t shoot the foul shots well and we didn’t shoot very well, but we held in there and did enough to take the win in the end,” New Mexico coach Steve Alford said. “It was nice to take a win on the road this game.” Hardeman had a chance to seal it but went 1 for 2 from the line to give New Mexico a 60-57 lead with

Dils said. “We’re a deep team, and starting in the fall, I would not have thought we’d have gotten this good yet, considering how young we are and how much we had to work on. In my mind, we’re miles ahead of where I would have put us at this point in the season.” The Lobos came out on fire, capturing the doubles point with three wins at the No. 1, 2, and 3 spots. Dils said the team worked specifically on doubles last week in preparation for Sunday’s match. “I was happy with the day,” he said. “We worked hard all week on a few things — namely doubles. The guys came out with good energy in doubles play, and it carried over to singles.” With the win, the men’s team evened its spring record to 3-3, while the women’s team dropped to 1-4 on the year. Up next, the women host No. 71 Nevada at 5 p.m. on Friday, while the men hit the road to take on in-state rival No. 73 New Mexico State. “We can only hope that Anya will be back,” Bonner said. “This week in practice we need to come together and work twice as hard for the matches this weekend. If she can’t play, everyone has to step up again. And this time, we’re ready for it.”
Ashley Bonner returns a ball during her singles match with Colorado State’s Monica Milewski on Sunday. Bonner lost in straight sets, 6-0, 6-0, as the Lobos were swept 7-0 on Sunday inside the Randy Briggs Tennis Bubble.

9.5 seconds left. After a time out, the Utes got the ball to Brown in the corner and his 3-pointer with about two seconds left tied it again. Alford is the first coach in New Mexico school history to beat Utah twice in Salt Lake City. “For us to win in overtime — when they made the shot that put the game into overtime — (that) doesn’t happen very often,” Alford said. Brown drove for a layup to put Utah up 62-60 in overtime, but Hardeman tied it again with a dunk and then Martinez gave the Lobos the final lead of the game on a 3-pointer with 1:26 left. Martinez added an offensive rebound on the next possession that led to two more foul shots by Hobson and New Mexico held on for the win. “Things weren’t going our way and we pushed on through,” Martinez said. “They were trying to fight and go into another overtime. The little things like that I think are huge, especially in overtime.” The game got testy in the first minute of the second half. Utah’s Luka Drca and Hardeman faced off and had some words and exchanged shoves after a whistle.
Hardeman got the second one in and Utah fans chanted “Throw him out!” as the officials took a few minutes to sort out the penalties, which wound up being a technical on both players. The Utes went scoreless for 5:01 after David Foster’s layup cut the Lobos’ lead to 20-19 with 8:28 left in the first half. Martinez and McDonald hit back-to-back 3-pointers to get New Mexico started on a 9-2 run late in the half. The Lobos were up 31-25 at the break.

Courtside cerebral complex
by Isaac Avilucea Daily Lobo
Somewhere buried in the bowels of cognition, there is a reason the UNM women’s basketball team can’t, for the life of them, beat Utah. Since the sport is amicable to ambiguity, it takes a locksmith to unlock the adjoining corridors of brain, behavior and basketball, an area that is neither strictly qualitative nor quantitative, though box scores attempt to crystallize the narratives of games through basic statistical lenses. If such were the case on Saturday against Utah, the UNM women’s basketball team shot 23.1 percent from the field in the second half and attempted nine less free throws. Meanwhile, the Utes shot 40 percent from the field in the second half and made four more free throws than the Lobos. So there you have it. Well, no, not really. In any case, it is sometimes warranted to be child-like
in our line of questioning. When all else fails, ask why. Why, on the last four occasions, have the Lobos lost by a combined total of seven points? Why, with or without Amy Beggin, can’t UNM overcome and triumph? Do the Utes have a psychological edge over UNM in tight-knit, endgame situations? Nobody seemed to have a valid answer. “No, I don’t think they do,” said guard Amanda Best. “I think we played really hard. We played really good defense. We shut down a lot of their key players, held them under their averages, but we just didn’t finish on the offensive end.” Same question to Utes’ head coach Elaine Elliott. “Did you ask them? I don’t know how they feel about it,” she said. “I think they probably think they can beat us every time they play us.” Think, of course, being the key word here. Regarding the question, Lobo head
coach Don Flanagan came closest, insinuating something more far-reaching is in play than a box score could suggest. “I don’t know as to what our kids’ feelings are,” he said. “I would think they’d be quite motivated to play against Utah. But, down the stretch, they’ll make a shot and we won’t.” Setting the Stage It was last year, at home. With Flanagan’s 300th win on the line, the Lobos held a 50-45 lead over the Utes with 1:23 left in the game. Then it all unraveled — and, as Saturday proved, the Lobos have yet to spindle the long-running yarn. An 8-0 burst by the Utes, including a running, game-winning 3-pointer by Morgan Warburton, put Utah ahead for good. Subsequently, the Lobos’ next loss to Utah on March 4 took, more or less, the same predictable twists and turns: the Lobos down three points, Beggin see Lobo page 8
LOBO WOMEN’S BASKETBALL
Good defense can’t make up for weak offense
by Ryan Tomari Daily Lobo
It was supposed to be a game of redemption for the UNM women’s basketball team. And it was going to be the deUtah 52 fense that would provide a spark UNM 49 to put the Lobos
back on track toward contending for the Mountain West Conference regular-season championship. But Utah derailed the Lobos in The Pit on Saturday with a 52-49 victory, UNM’s fourth straight loss to the Utes on Bob King Court and its second straight loss after reeling off three wins in a row against conference top dogs BYU, TCU and San Diego State.
Although the Lobos played a near-perfect defensive game, it was a lack of offensive production that sealed the Lobos’ tomb. Head coach Don Flanagan said he doesn’t understand why his team can’t drain shots, especially open shots. He said for the second straight game it has been the Lobos’ Achilles’ heel.
“Our defense is good enough to win, our offense isn’t good enough to win,” Flanagan said. “We’re getting decent shots and we’re shooting more than our opponents. We have to be able to make shots and I thought that we defended well enough to win.” The Lobos struggled without their leading scorer and floor general, Amy Beggin.
Beggin, who averages 13.5 points per game, did not play against Utah because of a head injury she suffered Wednesday against UNLV. It was the first game Beggin missed in her career, snapping a consecutive streak of 124 games. Georonika Jackson, who scored

Singles drama sparks wild love-filled match by Brandon Call Daily Lobo
It was the tale of two teams on Valentine’s Day at the UNM Tennis Complex. Just like the literary classics, there was love, loss and drama on court Sunday for the UNM men’s and women’s tennis teams. While the No. 50 Lobo men’s team picked up a quick 7-0 (or as it’s known in tennis, love) victory over Abilene Christian, the women’s team faced adversity before falling to No. 61 Colorado 7-0. Minutes before the women’s match began, the Lobos’ No. 1 singles player, junior Anya Villanueva, injured her back during warmups, taking her out of the line-up and forcing everyone on UNM’s roster to play up a position. Women’s tennis head coach Roy Cañada said he was pleased with his team’s perseverance. “I am very proud of the way the team competed, especially in light of Anya’s unfortunate injury,” he said. “Everybody had to move up, and they all fought hard. We have some growing to do, but facing this adversity made us play better tennis.” Stepping up into the No. 1 singles position for the Lobos, junior Ashley Bonner lost 6-0, 6-0 to
Colorado’s Monica Milewski. Bonner admits she was a little nervous moving into the top spot. “It as a little scary and tough,” she said. “It kind of threw things off and put us off our games, and we had to forfeit two matches.” Lobo freshman Kristin Eggleston was closest to a victory on the women’s side, fighting to a 6-3, 7-5 loss to Colorado’s Camila Belassi at the No. 3 singles position. “I was just proud of the way everyone rose to the occasion,” Bonner said. “After doubles, I pulled everyone aside and said, ‘Let’s do this for Anya.’ And I was happy with the way that we continued on, not just giving up.” On the men’s side, UNM swept all matches and never dropped a set to its opponent. At the No. 1 singles position, sophomore Ben Dunbar was a 6-4, 6-4 winner over Abilene Christian’s Eldad Campbell. And making his debut in a spring dual match, sophomore Matt Neeld cruised to a 6-4, 6-1 victory against Abilene Christian’s Karl Bein. “We had several players step up for us, which was refreshing to see,” men’s tennis head coach Alan
