GPSA debates allocating funds to student paper by Andrew Beale Daily Lobo

GPSA is trying to decide if it should volunteer some money to keep the student UNM newspaper afloat. At a meeting Saturday, GPSA discussed whether to give funding to

the Daily Lobo from GPSA’s funds. The proposed measure would dedicate almost $16,000 a year from GPSA to the Lobo. GPSA Council Chair Danny Hernandez said the resolution — which the council will decide to vote on March 6 — was considered because ASUNM asked GPSA to help fund

the Lobo. “I found out in a Daily Lobo article that ASUNM is contributing to the Lobo,” he said. “I think it would be only fair if we contribute to them, too.” ASUNM senators Alicia Barry and Travis Maestas introduced a resolution and bill to the ASUNM

Steering and Rules Committee that would both cut some ASUNM funding to Student Publications and encourage GPSA and other UNM governing bodies to contribute more to the newspaper. The bill failed, but the resolution comes before the full Senate Wednesday. However, GPSA representative

Shawn Whiteman said she doesn’t feel the Lobo deserves so much money from GPSA. “My constituency doesn’t really read the Lobo, so I would have to vote against this,” she said. “I would see giving them some funding, but not as much as ASUNM. I would give

Student veterans sponsor scholarship

Pep talk

For the first time ever, the Student Veterans of UNM Student will sponsor scholveteran arships for two stuscholarship dent veterans startapplication ing in the summer semester. Zack Mutchler, president of Student Veterans of UNM, said the scholarships are important to supplement the financial assistance the government gives to veterans. “Even with the amount of financial assistance we get from the government, with the Montgomery and GI bills, there’s still always a need, with the current economy, for a little bit of extra money to help out (and) pay the bills or buy books, or something of that nature,” he said. Eric Ross, a member of the student veteran organization, said the two scholarships have different criteria.

“Was I the only one who put glue on my hands and peeled it off for fun when I was a kid?” J.D. Juerling, vice president of UNM Bigs, asked this question while making an art project with his little brother from Big Brothers Big Sisters. UNM Bigs is a branch of the nationally-recognized mentoring program Big Brothers Big Sisters. UNM Bigs hosted a day for littles and bigs — Albuquerque teenagers and their mentors — to make art projects at the Art Building on Saturday. The art will be displayed during an April art show at Chroma Studios art gallery. Rosalba Rincon, UNM Bigs treasurer, said making art is a rare opportunity for many kids. “We know that art is not very developed in the

community,” she said. “There’s not that many places you can go and do art.” Rincon said bigs are usually footing the bill when taking their littles to do activities in the community, which is why the group wants to provide more free activities. “We want to provide some activities for matches to do so they don’t have to go to a place like Art! Attack and pay to do art,” she said. “We want to give them the materials.” Rincon said several more free art days are in the works. Group members paid for art supplies

perspectives. I found that the Kettering Institute (for TMJ) out of Dayton, Ohio, has been promoting that issue very heavily for many years ... UNM IPL has been asked to coordinate a 10-state western region effort to conduct public dialogue on economic security. These forums will be structured so that you get people talking to each other, understanding other perspectives and, if possible, finding other solutions that accommodate all the interests that people have. We are then the ones responsible for compiling the information into either a mock trial or a hearing of some kind that would dramatize what the issues are and try to encapsulate the different perspectives into presentations.

we are actually going to offer training to anyone that is interested in training on moderating and recording of national issue forums. There will be a pre-registration process to take part in this training. The training is on March 8, located in the SUB, beginning at 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. DL: What are you hoping to accomplish in research that can’t really provide any black and white answers? PB: The acceptance and funding of these forums by institutes like Kettering acknowledge the value in dialogue addressing public policy. The dialogue has been important ... We hope in the future to present the results of these forums to local legislators and get them more involved in the dialogue process. Paul Biderman

“We have a merit-based scholarship, and a general scholarship, which is really a need-based scholarship,� he said. Ross said he doesn’t yet know exactly how much money will be available in the scholarship fund, but they already have several thousand dollars in the fund. “I don’t want to give an actual dollar figure, because the fund has money in there now, but as far as how much we can actually give out, it depends on how much funds are in there,� he said. “Since the scholarship has just started, we’re able to afford to give out scholarships. We just haven’t figured it out.� Recipients of the scholarships have not yet been chosen. Applications are available at, and the deadline is March 15. Ross said the scholarships can help students whose GI Bill benefits

run out before they can graduate. “Those GI Bill benefits, they don’t last forever,� he said. “They end, typically, after 36 months of usage. So once the veteran has exhausted those 36 months of GI Bill benefits, they’re left to fend for themselves, basically.� Ross said the scholarships are awarded on a per-semester basis. “That’s kind of one of the unique things about our scholarship, is that we’re going to award it every semester,� he said. This scholarship is the first scholarship created by a student organization at UNM in more than 50 years, Ross said. He said all money collected for the scholarship comes from fundraising done by the Student Veterans. “Economically, we can’t give scholarships if we have no money for it,� he said. “We had to fundraise.

Sanchez said. She said this spring’s art show will be much better because of the multiple opportunities for bigs and littles to create art. Making art at the UNM campus is also beneficial for littles, she said. “We like to bring them to campus, show them off and teach them how to get around UNM so it’s not such a scary thing,� she said. “A lot of these kids, their parents haven’t gone to college.� She said any students who are thinking about being a big brother or sister should attend a UNM Bigs meeting and find out more about the organization. She said college students can be unique mentors. “Our philosophy at UNM Bigs is that if you have a positive role model, who is also a college student, it’ll increase the likelihood that you’ll go to college,� she said.

strong in community service and fundraising.� The Student Veterans will not keep the collected money themselves, Ross said. Instead it is being managed by the UNM Foundation. “It’s not like this scholarship is managed by us in some separate fund,� he said. Ross said they’ve had “plenty of inquiries� about the scholarship, but no one has turned in an application yet. Mutchler said the goal of the scholarships is to provide benefits to veterans that otherwise may not be available. “That’s kind of why we support these scholarships, is to make sure we can help them in the broadest ways possible — as opposed to traditional scholarships — which have fairly stringent rules to them,� he said.

FROM THE WEB In Thursday’s “Schmidly’s advisory team shuns Staff Council, GPSA,” Pat Lohmann details the unveiling of a list of students, faculty and administrators who will make up UNM President David Schmidly’s President’s Strategic Advisory Team. The advisory team will be helping Schmidly cut costs and evaluate University processes through means separate from the traditional channels, like student and faculty governing bodies. Daily Lobo readers had a lively discussion online about the topic. by ‘Lobo Joe’ Posted Friday “The best technique for conserving assets and enhancing efficiency is to consider replacing President Schmidly. Where did they discover this fool, the Ringling Brothers Clown College?” by ‘UNM Alumni’ Posted Friday “It comes as no surprise that Schmidly would shun Staff Council or GPSA considering that GPSA is speaking out against all the corruption in the UNM administration. That idiot is not smart enough to keep our University from getting screwed. I say we need to get rid of Schmidly, David Harris, Paul Krebs, Helen Gonzales, Shannon Garbiso and that out-of-control loser Mike Locksley — lying, covering up and destroying evidence. It is extremely difficult to trust a corrupt administration. If the Regents do not agree they should go as well.” by ‘UNM Administrators are INCOMPETENT’ Posted Friday “David Schmidly, Paul Krebs and Helen Gonzales are all incompetent. Mike Locksley’s violent out-of-control behavior fits right in with this irresponsible group of nonleaders.” by ‘Schmidly, Krebs and Locksley are paid a combined $1.75 million’ Posted Friday “Schmidly, Krebs and Locksley are paid a combined $1.75 million in public money. Replace all three. They are all insufficient leaders.” by ‘Student’ Posted Friday “Here’s a suggestion: Get some honest leaders that are not idiots and crooks to run our University.” by ‘Schmidly Is Corrupt’ Posted Friday “He doesn’t want anyone on the ‘President’s Strategic Advisory Team’ that he cannot manipulate. If you don’t agree with his rules, you are not on his team.” Join the discussion at

Not all vegetarians are radical ‘blood splatterers’ Editor, Chris Quintana’s off-topic, satirical commentary on PETA in his Daily Lobo column, “Getting rid of Facebook complainers,” is inaccurate. He detailed upon the organization as a “Vegan Outreach” saying that they handed out pamphlets comprised of deliberately appalling depictions of abused farm animals. Having been a vegetarian for a couple of years, I can confidently proclaim that we are not all blood-splatterers with a penchant for asserting our cause through shock value. There were several factors that played into my decision to become a vegetarian, and the subject of animal rights was not my primary motivation. I became a vegetarian for purely selfish reasons: I wanted to look and feel better. A balanced vegetarian diet of whole grains, plant-based proteins and fresh fruits and vegetables has accomplished this. I’d like to dispel the myth that all

vegetarians are waifs. My meat-free diet has built muscle and shed body fat, and my performance in physical activities has improved immeasurably. Vegetarianism has also enhanced my mental and emotional health. People who are interested in improving their physique or overall health might consider a carefully planned vegetarian or vegan diet. It tends to be lower in unhealthy saturated fats, which are primarily found in animal products. Additionally, a vegetarian diet mustn’t be bland and unsatisfying like some seem to believe. In the past two years, I’ve experimented with more exotic spices, ingredients and flavors than I ever did in my 20 years as a meat eater. I see nothing wrong with the basic concept of killing an animal and eating it. I do, however, have a problem with the questionable procedures of factory farming and their negative repercussions on human health and the environment. I maintain this attitude toward industrial agriculture as a whole. It’s apparent that genetically modified food treated with pesticides and antibiotics is, in the very least, unnatural. The verdict is still out on how safe


CNN recently reported that Pennsylvania parents are suing their son’s high school — alleging the school hacked into their son’s school district-issued laptop’s webcam and watched the student while he was at home and unaware he was being observed. It is unclear whether the boy was doing anything in his room that was illegal or whether the school issued any punishment. All 2,300 students at the district’s two high schools were offered laptops to “enhance opportunities for ongoing collaboration and ensure that all students have 24/7 access to school-based resources,” according to a message on the superintendent’s Web site. Is this an unlawful invasion of privacy or is spying on a student justifiable? No matter if he was selling drugs or killing babies, the fact that a school was spying on a student in their home is illegal. It is property of the school. They can use it how they please. I can see how you might think it was unlawful, but what is the difference between that and a lab monitor in the school library? But what if he was killing babies or selling drugs? Wouldn’t you want to catch him? The children! Think of the children!




it is. It’s crucial for consumers to realize most of the food suppliers in the United States are corporations that are set on making a profit. Consequentially, animals are treated as objects of monetary value. The necessity of antibiotic use in livestock is a byproduct of the filthy conditions of factory farms. This is not only an issue of animal rights; it’s a matter of consumer safety. If you are in any way concerned about your own health, physical appearance, the environment or the safety of your food, please consider vegetarianism, or at least look into eating free-range meat and local, organic produce. There are more ethical, nutritionally dense options than the fast food in the SUB. Annapurna Cafe and La Montañita Co-op are both within walking distance from campus and serve affordable, delicious food that you can feel good about eating. I’d also like to urge vegetarians on campus to use logical reasoning instead of shock effect when discussing their lifestyle with others. Sarah Minor UNM student

LAST WEEK’S POLL RESULTS: 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 to blame the economy for their record-breaking fortunes.” Do you feel this news changes the debate of health care? Out of 54 responses

Yes, it is obvious health care companies are purposely making health care coverage an extremely expensive and rare commodity on purpose.


Yes, any industry that is making extreme profits in the middle of 16% a recession should be examined. No, free market dictates that if the insurance companies are doing something that doesn’t benefit the population, people will 9% fix it with buying choice power. No, this is Democratic Party propaganda.

them maybe 50 cents per student.� At a Student Publications Board meeting on Friday, Barry — who is the ASUNM representative on the board — justified introducing the bill and resolution by saying money taken from Student Publications would be given to new student organizations. “It’s heartbreaking when we can’t give them money,� she said. Barry said the bill wasn’t intended only to cut the funding but was supposed to coincide with other governing groups chipping in. Staff Council and Faculty Senate were also listed in the resolution, but the Student Publications Board representatives pointed out that the two organizations don’t collect fees from their members. ASUNM contributes $57,212 yearly to the Daily Lobo, according to information distributed by GPSA. This works out to roughly $2.85 per undergraduate student, and the proposed measure would give the same amount to the Lobo from every graduate student. Since there are less graduate students than undergraduates, this would equal a projected $15,803 per year. GPSA contributes nothing to the Daily Lobo, although it does give $1,850 every year to student publications Conceptions Southwest and Best Student Essays. The Lobo relies on ASUNM for about 6 percent of its budget. However, Leslie Donovan, president of the Student Publications Board, said at a meeting Friday that if ASUNM stopped its funding, the newspaper’s reserves would only sustain the paper for two or three years. After the reserves ran out, Donovan said, the Lobo would stop being published. GPSA President Lissa Knudsen said she didn’t know if ASUNM would reduce its funding to the Lobo


if GPSA voted to fund it. “If the total amount for the Daily Lobo is almost $16,000, the first question is would we give that on top of ASUNM’s money, or would they reduce their contribution?� she said. Knudsen said the Lobo provides a service to graduate students, so they should be expected to help fund it. “It’s sort of considered a subscription, because all of us read it. But we don’t pay for it,� she said. “We’re also readers, but we’re not contributing to that.� Hernandez said it’s important to fund the Lobo in order to encourage a free press in New Mexico. “I strongly believe the only way democracy works is with a strong press, and right now, the Daily Lobo is the second largest paper in (Albuquerque), after the Journal,� he said. “And it’s not just students that read it. Ask a legislator if they read an article in the Lobo, and they’ll say yes.� Knudsen said the Lobo is in need of additional funding, but the GPSA still needs to figure out where the money would come from. “They’re running in the red, as are most print newspapers,� she said. “There’s difficult decisions to be made, and it’s up to the council to make them. The only way we could do it is if we were to cut stipends and salaries, or if we increased student fees.� Knudsen gave one more reason for funding the Lobo: to show support for ASUNM. “I also like the gesture of hearing the undergraduates. There’s a perception that the graduate students don’t want to work with them,� she said. The Daily Lobo’s annual budget is $749,500. Pat Lohmann contributed to this report.

second half,” Alford said. “You have to give them credit for that.” Most of that came on the back of Falcons’ forward Grant Parker, who scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half, from everywhere on the floor, inside and out. The streak, however, faded and the Falcons shot just 3-of-9 in the last 10 minutes of the second half. The game remained close throughout with no team ever leading by more than seven points. The score was tied eight times with seven lead changes. “We weren’t ready to play from the jump,” Hobson said. “So, that is what happens when you play a team


like that. They had a whole week off last week, and they came in. They don’t have anything to lose.” Even so, Hobson — who tallied 17 points, eight rebounds and five assists — saved the Lobos from a monumental letdown. Off a pass from Dairese Gary that hit him in the knees, Hobson shielded the ball away from two Falcon defenders, clinching a victory in the defining moments of the game. “That is what you live for as a kid,” Hobson said. “You watch Michael Jordan and big-time players that make big-time shots at the end of games … But on any given night, any one of us can make that same play.”

better training with the coaches and everything.” That regimen involves three and a half hours of rigorous, daily training. Zuyderwyk said York generally trains for two or three events per day. One day York will focus on technique work for the shot put and then practice jumps; another day he’ll run in preparation for the 60 and 1,000-meter runs in the heptathlon. Other days, he’ll work on the pole vault and jumps, Zuyderwyk said. “The hours are longer than for most of the other athletes,” he said. “So, these guys probably train three and a half hours a day, or something like that, in order to get their conditioning in, their running in, their speed work (and) their technique work for the different events. And then they are, obviously, strength training, as well.” Before the official training began, senior teammate Jeremy Lee said York was going to be great. “When I first got here, we had some kind of ‘all athletes’ meeting for all the teams, and that’s when I first met Richard,” Lee said. “I started to set up a practice before we actually started practicing as a team. He came out with me and my roommate, and we all just did, you know, some informal workouts with each other, and I could tell right then and

there he was definitely going to be something special. I came and told Brian (Wilson), ‘Richard is going to kill this year.’” Likewise, Wilson said having York around is helping everyone on the team. “Last year I trained by myself. You know, having some people to train with this year has just been nice,” Wilson said. “Hearing about his stats out of high school and him being such a well-defined athlete out of high school — it was nice knowing he was going to come here, and we could kind of compete against each other in practice and the meets, and kind of, you know, push each other to do better. I know I have made big improvements just being able to work out with him. Trying to beat him has made me a better athlete.” With the Mountain West Conference Championship starting on Saturday, York said he wants to reach an NCAA qualifying mark. “I just work on trying to get my best mark possible,” he said. “I want to go into it hoping that my training will get me to where I need to be. I don’t want to stress it. I don’t want to tell myself that I have to do this, or I have to do that. I just want to go out, run my race, do my event and if everything going as well as I think it is, it should all work to where I’ll qualify.”

Tennis takes rough 7-0 loss against Kansas by Brandon Call Daily Lobo

The UNM women’s tennis team was blanked by Kansas State on Sunday at UNM’s Linda Estes Tennis Center. The Lobos failed to win a match in the 7-0 loss, but head coach Roy Cañada said the match was closer than the score indicated. “It was actually a very close match,” he said. “We were right there with them in singles. A few points here and there, and it could have been a different story. I’m happy to see we’re playing with a lot of heart and determination, but we’re having trouble putting matches away, and we’re getting tight when the match is on the line.” With No. 2 player and co-captain Ashley Bonner sidelined with a back injury, Cañada switched up the doubles pairings to compensate for Bonner’s absence. Freshman Kristin Eggleston moved up to No. 1 doubles with junior Anya Villanueva to drop an 8-0 decision, and sophomore Eliane Bourdages made her spring season debut at No. 3 doubles and was paired with freshman Laura Richardson. “It is difficult to play with someone you’re not used to,” Richardson said, who lost 8-5. “I mean, when you are used to someone’s playing style, you can almost guess what shot they’re going to hit next. But we can’t use that as an excuse. Kansas State was just more aggressive in doubles, and we need to work on getting to the net and taking the first strike.” After grabbing the doubles point,

the Wildcats picked up two more wins at No. 1 and No. 6 singles to take a quick 3-0 lead. Needing just one more point to clinch the match, Kansas State had to scrap and claw for it, as the Lobos refused to keel over. “We fought hard and gave it our all,” Richardson said. “We were in every singles match, and I thought it showed a lot about our team — just being able to come back and not give up.” Bourdages dropped a marathon match 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 against Kansas State’s Maryna Chumak at No. 5 singles to clinch the match. Eggleston also lost a 6-4, 6-7, 10-6 heartbreaker in a third-set tiebreak. And Richardson suffered a tough 7-6, 6-4 loss in two and a half hours at No. 2 singles. But it was freshman Amy Shipperd, who had the longest match of the day, lasting almost three hours. Shipperd lost 6-7, 6-3, 6-3 to Kansas State’s Petra Chuda at the No. 3 spot. “I actually thought I played pretty well,” Shipperd said. “I was down 5-2 and 4-1 in the second and third set, and managed to come back a little.” With the loss, UNM is 1-6 in the season. The Lobos now start an 11match road trip in which they will face four ranked teams, beginning with No. 24 Boise State next weekend. UNM doesn’t have another home match until April 16. “We travel pretty well,” Cañada said. “These next few matches will give us some great experience playing some quality teams. I’m excited about the competition and for us to see what we’re made of.”





Snagging three wins during home-opener by Ryan Tomari Daily Lobo

It couldn’t have been a better home-opening weekend for the UNM softball team. The Lobos nearly swept Seattle, winning three of four games over the weekend at the UNM Softball Complex. UNM won Saturday’s games 6-1 and 9-8, before dropping Sunday’s first leg of the doubleheader 9-3, but then run-ruled the Redhawks, 9-0 in five innings of the second leg. The Lobos scored four runs each in the third and fourth innings, in Sunday’s 9-0 pasting, putting their record at 5-3 overall. Second baseman Cristin Anderson said Sunday’s shutout was invigorating. “We really didn’t get it done in the first game, but we came back in the second game strong and knocked them out in five innings, which was good,” Anderson said. “I think we just had (more) heart and being able to bounce back definitely played a role.” While Sunday’s games were hardly in doubt, Saturday was chock full of unscripted theatrics. That’s when Anderson rescued the Lobos with a walk-off hit with two outs and the bases loaded to drive in Jessica Lujan-Dresslar for the gamewinning run, giving the Lobos a 9-8

victory over the Redhawks. Down 8-7 in the bottom of the seventh inning, Lujan-Dresslar singled to right field to tie the game at eight a piece. And then Anderson stepped to the plate, after struggling for much of the afternoon. “In that second game, I just kept hitting right to people,” Anderson said. “When the time came, I just knew I had to get it done. I had to find a hole, and I did. I have been in that position a couple of times, but definitely it’s always exciting, because your adrenaline is always pumping. I was so excited, so happy, to get the hit.” UNM freshman outfielder Cassandra Kalapsa said all Anderson had to do was make solid contact, because Lobos were in scoring position. “We were down coming into the seventh, and there is nothing to do but hit, especially when you’re the home team,” Kalapsa said. “You have to hit, and, when you have runners on base, you have to score, and that is what we did. We executed really well.”

Saturday Air Force match too close for comfort by Mario Trujillo Daily Lobo

Terrance Siemon / Daily Lobo Richard York prepares for pole vault practice at the Albuquerque Convention Center on Wednesday. York is a multi-event athlete.

The freshman of many talents by Chris Quintana Daily Lobo

A normal collegiate track athlete might compete in up to four events. When Lobo track and field athlete Richard York steps onto the curved slopes of an indoor track, he competes in seven. York finished first among college athletes and second overall in the New Mexico Classic on Feb. 6, while setting a school record for the heptathlon with 5,294 points, which happens to be fewer than 100 points away from an NCAA qualifying mark. More of note, York is a freshman from St. Clair, Mo., and the New Mexico Classic was his first college competition in multiple events. Assistant coach Rodney Zuyderwyk said York has an edge on other competitors. “Basically, he is an incredibly hard worker,” Zuyderwyk said. “He has a very high tolerance for pain. He pushes himself very hard when it comes to his running workouts, especially. He’s tough mentally and tough physically and has been able to get a lot of good hard running in, so he’s very fit right now. But that’s just his toughness that pushes him through the pain and allows him to get this fit.” And the tireless work never ends. Now, York’s working on the vault — a skill he’s been harnessing for a few years. In between launches, York talks to teammates, joking about something or helping them re-tape poles or deciding which pole they’d be best suited to use for vaulting. And now it’s his turn. He stands on his toes, miming the arm motions he’ll be going through when the pole connects with the ground, breathes deep and then sets his head forward. He sprints straight, pole in hand, but nonetheless moving with a fluid ease. In less than two seconds, he’s flying through the air, his body curving over the mark as the pole falls in the opposite direction. This event inspired York to get into track. “Pole vault is the original reason I got started doing track in the first place,” he said. “I wanted to be just a pole-vaulter. It’s just really fun, and

there’s so much that goes into it, and obviously it’s fun to fall down from 15 feet onto a mat. It feels like you’re messing around, but you’re really training.” While pole vaulting might be his original love, York said the rest of the multi-event world appeals to him. “It’s a little intimidating until you get the feel for multi-event athletes very well whenever you compete with them,” York said. “You spend so much more time with somebody that’s doing a multi, versus someone you just see in one race. Every single event, you get to know them a little bit better. I don’t really see it as intimidating. I try to help them get better as well as help myself

get better.” York’s training regimen is what’s bettering his performance. This year marks the first time that he’s trained specifically for multi-event competitions. “I have never actually done a multi with extensive training for the multi,” he said, staring at the track and watching his teammates vault. “It’s always been in the summer after my high school season, and every week I’d get more rusty on certain events. It’s good now that I actually get to train for it, so that’s probably pretty much what’s leading to how good I am doing right now. It’s a lot

And to think, the UNM men’s basketball was on the verge of blowing its 10-game win streak, No. 12 national ranking, the Mountain West lead and, potentially, the regularseason championship. With three minutes left, the Lobos were down three to Air Force (9-16 UNM 59 overall and 1-11 56 AF MWC), the worst team in the MWC. But in what is fast becoming a signature, the Lobos survived, coming out with a 59-56 win inside The Pit on Saturday off of Darington Hobson’s game-winning layup with 16 seconds left in the game. Including Saturday’s win, the Lobos (25-3, 11-2 MWC) have won three of the last five games decided by less than four points and won all eight games this season decided by four or less points. “For whatever reason, if you look at those last four-minute games, we have won a lot,” said head coach Steve Alford. “And this one was another one. This was one we probably shouldn’t have won, and yet they found a way. And I am very appreciative of their efforts.” Yet, in uncharacteristic fashion, the Lobos scored less than 60 points for the first time this season. Before Saturday, the Lobos were 1-3 when scoring 66 or less points. They nearly equaled their season lows in field goals made (18) and field goals attempted (44) on Saturday. “Sometimes during a long season, (games) are not always going to go as scripted,” Alford said. “And you

got to find ways to win, and our guys did that.” The Lobos scored only 14 points on field goals in the first half — partly because of poor shooting (33.3 percent in the first half) and partly because the Falcons constantly put the Lobos on the line. By the end of the half, UNM had already attempted 19 free throws (making 14). The Lobos ended the night shooting 18-of-25 from the line. In one 10-minute first-half stretch, the Lobos didn’t hit a field goal but still managed to get eight points from the line. Still, the game remained close, as Air Force turned the ball over 14 times compared to the Lobos’ six. Alford ran full-court press for the latter part of the first half. “We are not really a pressing team. We haven’t been all year,” Alford said. “This is the first time we even tried to do any pressing, just to try to get the tempo going.” Alford’s defense wasn’t the only thing that slowed down Air Force. The Falcons also got themselves in trouble, mismanaging the shot clock on a number of possessions, which led to multiple shot-clock violations. While the Falcons were deliberate with their shooting, they were also efficient. They finished shooting 51.2 percent from the field, compared to the Lobos’ 40.9 percent. In a 12-minute stretch to start the second half, the Falcons were shooting Annie Oakley numbers (78.6 percent from the field), propelling them to one of their first leads of the half, 47-46. “They made everything in the

Texas-sized prediction comes true for NM by Isaac Avilucea Daily Lobo

Junfu Han / Daily Lobo Richard York trains for the 60-meter hurdles on Saturday at the UNM Outdoor Track Complex.

Perhaps nobody in the state of New Mexico is aware that Ray Birmingham is actually a seer. When the Lobo head coach scheduled Texas, he seemed to be aiming for impossible targets without all his bullets — the Lobos lost several seniors from last year’s team, and this year, as it seems every year, was coined a rebuilding year by pundits, Birmingham said. Let this serve as a notice. The UNM baseball team marched into No. 1 Texas’ hallowed stomping grounds for a three-game series. And the Lobos left with the majority — two wins. Birmingham could hardly contain his elation in a phone interview with the Daily Lobo on Sunday afternoon. “We’re feeling like a million bucks,” he said. “The pitchers pitched their butts off in a hostile environment.” Before the series began, Birmingham snickered at the assertion that New Mexico baseball lagged far behind other marquee college baseball destinations, Texas being one of them. Apparently, his words

resonated with the team. After dropping a fiercely fought game on Friday, 6-2, UNM responded with a pair of victories, 6-5 on Saturday and 3-1 on Sunday. Lobo pitcher Mike Lachapelle allowed seven hits in six innings of work, earmarking a 3-1 victory for UNM on Sunday. And the hitters, too, came through in the direst circumstances. Down two runs in the ninth inning on Saturday, Justin Howard evened the score at five apiece with a solo home run, before Max Willett’s sacrifice fly brought in the go-ahead run. UNM pitcher Austin House then seated the Longhorns’ next two batters in the bottom of the ninth to seal the win. “When’s the last time a Lobo team beat the No. 1 team in the country at their place?” Birmingham asked. The answer: It’s never happened in the history of Lobo baseball. “And not only once did we beat them, but twice — at their home place,” Birmingham said. “We’re going to celebrate today, but tonight, when we tuck our butts in bed, we’re going to be thinking about Texas Tech and how to beat them.”
