PASSION OF THE PIT

by Sofia Sanchez sanchez@unm.edu

Nearly 100 UNM faculty, students and parent association members discussed with democratic state legislators what can be done to get UNM back on track in light of budget cuts at Wednesday’s on-campus Forum on Higher Education. Candidates answered questions about funding, tuition and the regent selection process. The questions were collected in an online survey. Neither gubernatorial candidates were present at Wednesday’s forum, but Lt. Gov. candidate Brian Colón showed up in Diane Denish’s place. Rep. Jerry Ortiz y Pino said he wants the regent selection process to be less political. “I would like to take the process of regent selection out of the hands of the governor,” he said. “There should be one board of regents for the whole state.” Rep. Gail Chasey said candidates have to remember UNM is a

“The election is going to be a nailbiter to the end. I think that students could play a big role like they did in the ’08 election,” she said. “If they get out and vote, it could really change how this race ends.” Chris Cervini, Denish’s deputy campaign manager, said Denish is

working to show how important college voters are to her. He said Denish wants to help New Mexicans get affordable education by cutting the number of UNM vice presidents. “She is really going to be pushing a strong get-out-to-vote message because, frankly, it’s important for college students — taking that money, that administrative bloat, and putting it directly back into the classrooms,” Cervini said. “She is a supporter of the

University’s academic mission.” Donald Gluck, president of UNM Conservative Republicans, said Republicans believe in individual achievement and excellence in education. “Republicans will do more with less. We welcome the opportunity to prove this,” he said. College Democrats President Ray Suelzer said the Nov. 2 election is important for many reasons. The next

governor, he said, will set education policy, and a Democrat-controlled Congress will set the tone for policy for the next two years. “When students vote, it means they are more likely to be listened to when policy is made,” Ray Suelzer said. “The Democratic Congress has done more for our generation than any Congress in recent history.” Gluck said Democrats have controlled the state’s legislature for nearly 70 years, except two short intermissions. He said under continued Democratic leadership, New Mexico would continue to be a poor state. “New Mexico has a large budget deficit, is rife with public corruption, has high unemployment and reduced drilling for oil and gas,” Gluck said. “Monopoly control has led to corruption and incompetence.” Suelzer said he hopes Democrats continue to control Congress because they can accomplish more during President Obama’s term. He said if Denish is elected governor, she will consider the college students’ concerns during the policy-making process. “I think that a Republican Congress will block any progress to move this country forward,” he said.

THIS WEEK’S POLL: Are UNM administrators taking education into account when they bring down the budget cut ax?

Yes, the administration is doing everything it can to ensure that educational needs are met.

COLUMN

Don’t be influenced by the myths

Yes, the administration has cut funding in other areas before it increased tuition to compensate for budget cuts. No, the administration doesn’t realize that increasing education expenses translates into students have to work more and study less. No, the administration is more worried about how it looks than the quality of education students receive.

“You can’t get the flu from a flu shot”

by Dr. Margaret Spencer Daily Lobo columnist Dear Dr. Peg, A few years ago, I got the flu from a flu shot, so I haven’t gotten one since, but that whole swine flu thing last year scared me. Should I get a flu shot this year? Signed, Fearful Dear Fearful, First of all, you can’t get the flu from a flu shot. That is a common myth, but it is scientifically impossible. The flu shot contains only pieces of the flu virus, and it is as capable of making you sick as a computer can check your e-mail for you. You might get a sore arm and some mild achiness and such, but trust me; common side effects of the shot are far milder than the flu. Have you ever had the flu?

Administrators’ choice of cuts spares non-essential programs Editor, Ruben Hamming-Green’s piece, “Lessons paused to address budget,” provided us with a perfect example of how the current administration is the master of spin as far as the budget is concerned. While those who participated in last week’s teach-in should be applauded for raising awareness of the effects of budget cuts on UNM’s core mission, our provost comes out with two sentences that generally state: I support this action, but I’m sorry that students didn’t learn what they were supposed to in those classes. Ouch! Well, please speak up, undergraduates, if you feel that your education suffered because instructors and TAs took a few class minutes to discuss how the administration is doing all it can to lower the quality of campus education for years to come. I might add that UNM’s mission (page 9 of the 2010-11 UNM catalog) states clearly that one of its, and therefore its instructors’, “cornerstones of

I haven’t had it in, well, decades, thanks to the flu shot, but my son had it last year, and it reminded me up close and personal how awful the disease is. In case you’re wondering, yes, I tried to convince him to get a flu shot, but he’s 17, with a mind of his own. The poor kid shivered and sweated in his bed for a week, aching and coughing, thoroughly miserable. Experience is the best teacher: This year he got the shot. Flu season is coming again, as it does every year from October to March. Last year was especially scary, with type A/H1N1 hitting us hard and early. Influenza kills about 36,000 Americans every year and puts 200,000 more in the hospital with pneumonia, encephalitis or other complications. You might recall that one of our students tragically died from H1N1 last year. His parents are urging everyone to get a flu shot (see “Take one for Raymond and protect yourself from flu” at DailyLobo.com). Thanks to science and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this year’s flu shot contains pieces of H1N1, in addition to pieces of another type of influenza A and influenza B. If you get the shot, you’ll be protected against these three types of flu, which are expected to be the most common this season. It’s all in one shot, too, unlike last year. Best of all, flu shots are free for students, faculty and staff. If you got a flu shot last year, it has worn off by now. You need a new shot every year to avoid getting the flu. Also, you should know that the flu

shot will not protect you from anything else, like colds or other respiratory viruses. You might still get sick this winter. If you take basic precautions, like keeping your body nourished with good food, exercise and sleep, sickness is less likely. Also, keep your hands off your face to avoid escorting germs into your body. There are a few people who should not get a flu shot. Those included people who are allergic to eggs or flu shots or had a severe reaction to a flu shot in the past. If you are currently sick with anything more than a mild cold, you should wait until you’re better before you get a flu shot. Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) offers flu shots to students without an appointment. Also, SHAC will offer two more flu shot clinics in the SUB for adult students, staff and faculty on Wednesday and October 28 from 10a.m.-2 p.m. Either place you go, the shots are free. Bottom line is, yes, I think you should get a flu shot. Immunizations are one of the true marvels of modern medicine. Influenza is a serious and dangerous disease. Why not protect yourself?

Drop your questions in her box in the lobby of Student Health and Counseling, or e-mail her directly at pspencer@ unm.edu. All questions will be considered, and all questioners will remain anonymous.

LETTER purpose” is to “Educate and encourage students to develop the values, habits of mind, knowledge and skills that they need to be enlightened citizens.” I congratulate those who “enlightened” their students last week. So why the spin? Here’s a quick UNM budget 101: Each month UNM receives on the order of $180 million from the state legislature to go toward instructional activities. Sounds like a lot, but this actually constitutes less than 10 percent of the University’s total revenue and about 20 percent of the main campus budget. So surely a $6 million rescission in the money coming from Santa Fe should be relatively easily covered by the documented growth in other sources of revenue. Right? Wrong, because money in “Pot X” can’t be added to ”Pot Y,” and money taken from ”Pot A” to fund ”Pot B” can’t be put back. Therefore, the budget of the Office of the President is able to increase from $2.5 million in 2002 to $8.5 million in 2010, while the College of Arts & Sciences is making do with the same budget it had in the 1990s. But what if money from “Pot X” really can’t be moved to “Pot Y”? What then? How do we make up the $6 million shortfall?

A close examination of the distribution of state funding once it reaches UNM (source: FY11 Joint Faculty/Staff/GPSA Budget Proposal) shows that large chunks are heading to groups and projects that have nothing to do with UNM’s core mission. Here are a few examples: At least $1.5 million of instructional funding goes to the non-instructional UNM Foundation (incidentally the College of Arts and Sciences, which has the largest enrollment and teaches the most classes, is currently being asked to cut its budget by $1.5 million); $733,040 of instructional funds goes to UNM Alumni relations (is it teaching our classes?); $975,053 of instructional funds props up our fiscally unsustainable intercollegiate Athletics program. I’m already more than halfway to $6 million, and I barely got started. So let’s make sure that when the Provost’s Office tells us its identified fat that can be trimmed, it’s not by forcing colleges to shed instructors, TAs and staff members that actually support the University’s stated mission.

Seminar a racism reminder by Laurel Brishel Prichard lbrishel@unm.edu

More than 300 students joined to voice concerns about racism in health and educational institutions Thursday. Dr. Camara Phyllis Jones, the keynote speaker, said institutional racism is just as much a problem as racism at the individual level. “It is important for people to be able to look outside of their individual circumstances to understand the experiences of others, to understand the larger decision-making processes that create the range of circumstances in a community and who is found where,” she said. Gabriel Sanchez, an assistant professor of political science, said race issues are still relevant. “A lot of people are talking about the United States as a post-racial society,” Sanchez said. “I think it’s

important to recognize there are still very critical issues floating around about the idea of racism that we can’t overlook.” Student Alejandro Mendiaz said he has felt the effects of racism while trying to get an education. He said El Centro de la Raza, the on-campus center focused on assisting and voicing the concerns of the Latino community on campus, has been crucial in helping him. “I think that sometimes things are set up a little bit harder in the institutions, especially when I first came to the United States,” Mendiaz said. “I think we all receive racism. No matter who we are, there are always going to be people who don’t accept you.” Only by voicing these concerns, Jones said, will things become more equitable. She urged students to participate in the International Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD).

Clinton: No second Texas governor by Sofia Sanchez sanchez@unm.edu

M

Gubernatorial candidate Diane Denish pulled out the big guns in Española on Thursday with campaign help from former president Bill Clinton. Clinton reminded thousands of cheering and enthusiastic supporters of Republican candidate for Governor Susan Martinez’s Texas roots. He said water rights issues need to be at the forefront of northern New Mexicans’ minds. “I feel bad about Texas being short of water. Really, I do,” Clinton said. “But, you know, I don’t feel so bad that I think they should have two governors and New Mexico none.” Clinton repeatedly tied Martinez to Texas. Many of Martinez’s largest contributions have been from Texas-based companies and citizens, according to Denish’s campaign. Bob Perry and his wife, both from Houston, donated

$450,000 to Martinez’s campaign May 4, according to  Martinez’s May 28 finance report. Elmer Maestas, a native northern New Mexican, said he opposes Martinez and Republican ideas about privatizing Social Security. “That is the worst thing that can happen to northern New Mexico, where there are a lot of poor and low income people that depend on it,” he said. “I think ‘Susan la Tejana’ should have stayed in Texas. She is heavily funded by Texas. What business do they have funding a candidate who is going to run the state of New Mexico?” Clinton said Denish is the only candidate with the political experience to create jobs and cut state spending. New Mexico House Speaker Ben Lujan said that this election signifies more than voting for a woman to be governor; it will have lasting state impacts. “We need a person with the necessary experience to run our state government,” Lujan said. “We are in dire need of leadership in our state. She knows our state legislators and our budget. Diane Denish is the best person for the job.”

“Ending racism, like achieving health equity, requires valuing all individuals and populations equally, recognizing and rectifying historical injustices and providing resources according to need,” she said. The ICERD treaty was ratified by United States in 1994. Under the treaty, every six years a report is sent to the United Nations, which compiles data from response and observation, and then gives suggestions to the UN designed to assist the nation in ending racial issues, Jones said. “Students and the general public can help publicize the existence of the ICERD, the obligations of the United States government under that treaty and the concerns and recommendations of the United Nations in response to our periodic reports,” she said.  “Increased awareness will support the efforts of the United States government to meet its international treaty obligations.”

Forum from page 1 state institution with a large voting demographic. “They need to remember that they have students and graduates of UNM in their districts,” Chasey said. “UNM belongs to the state, not just Albuquerque.” Students in attendance said they wanted to hear each gubernatorial candidate’s plan to help UNM in light of the economic downturn and subsequent budget cuts. Student Cindy Nava said the candidates’ absence was unacceptable. “I think them not coming shows lack of importance, and it doesn’t put them in a well-standing place with students who will be voting,” she said. Martinez and Denish were not available for comment. Faculty Senate President Richard Wood said the forum’s priority was to create dialogue about helping the University out of financial straits. He said cooperation from state leaders is essential. “Universities are among those institutions that are important to pull the state out of the downturn,” Wood said. “Research universities in particular are among those because what New Mexico needs is jobs, economic development and the kind of thriving cultural life that brings companies in the state.”

Tea Party rep eyes NM seat by Tim Korte

Associated Press LOS ALAMOS — During this election cycle, Tom Mullins is the closest thing New Mexico will see to a bona fide tea party candidate. The Republican nominee in the sprawling 3rd Congressional District, Mullins is challenging firstterm incumbent Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, D-N.M., for the House seat representing northern New Mexico and parts of the eastern plains. A petroleum engineer in Farmington, Mullins is making his first run for office after becoming involved as an organizer of San Juan County tea party events. “Of course, the media has demonized the tea party,” Mullins said. “But when you talk about the tea party, it’s a diverse group with two themes — the Constitution of the United States, trying to get our government back to that, and limiting the power and authority of the federal government.” Mullins said he has passed out more than 20,000 copies of the Constitution to voters while standing in front of grocery stores or knocking on doors across the

district. The Mullins campaign has relied heavily on volunteers and grassroots efforts characterized by tea party candidacies elsewhere, but it has adopted a more low-key approach, lacking the widespread rallies that launched other candidates to newsmaking victories. That might be attributed to the demographics of the heavily Democratic district. Only one Republican has been elected during its 28-year history, and only to fill an unexpired term. Yet Mullins believes his tea party philosophies are connecting with blue-collar citizens. He said he has received support on grazing, water rights and timber harvesting after venturing into Democratic strongholds in Taos, Chama, Las Vegas, Mora, Espanola and Pojoaque. “We’ve turned our public lands, which are supposed to be for management and public use, into public lands that can only be viewed from a distance,” Mullins said. “You’re not allowed to travel and utilize the land. I believe in the traditional uses of the land.” Mullins, who runs an oil and gas

Miners return to reality by Eva Vergara and Franklin Briceno Associated Press

COPIAPO, Chile — Carlos Bugueno is out of the collapsed mine but still lives in close quarters, sharing his small wood-and-tin house with 16 relatives. His family welcomed him home by lining the street with white plastic bags filled with air — they had no money for balloons. Despite donations and the promise of book and movie deals, most of the 33 Chilean miners trapped more than two months have returned to lives of struggle in improvised homes, often in gangridden neighborhoods lacking

basic services. Some worry it won’t get better. “Three months from now, what will I be doing? Selling candy on the beach? Wondering what the government has done for us? Nothing,” Edison Pena said. “I’m very afraid and I would like for things to change.” All but one of the miners have been released from the hospital since their rescue Wednesday from the San Jose gold and copper mine, where they had been trapped nearly a half-mile underground since the Aug. 5 collapse. Most returned to the mine Sunday for a Mass at the makeshift camp where their relatives had waited for them. “It’s nice to be here where our

families were,” said Luis Urzua, the shift foreman who has been praised for leading the trapped miners through the 69-day ordeal, especially in the first 17 days when they had no contact with the outside world and just a 48-hour emergency food supply. The camp on a barren hill in Chile’s northern Atacama region is rapidly being dismantled. A few tents, some media motorhomes and cars remain. So do 33 Chilean flags representing the miners and the flags of the U.S., Canada and Argentina, which aided in the fastpaced drilling operation that saved the men. Miner Carlos Barrios’ family was busy Sunday taking apart their

encampment, which was among the first built at Camp Hope. “I feel sorry (to leave) but at the same time I’m happy because I’m with my son again,” his stepmother Griselda Godoy said while packing up their camp stove. Pulled from the mine one by one in a custom-built capsule, the miners emerged as international celebrities, complete with high-end sunglasses that doctors said were hardly necessary to protect their eyes from sun and work lights after months in darkness. Many are still wearing the sunglasses, but their lives have become less glamorous. Many have returned to poverty in the hardscrabble neighborhoods that climb the hills around Copiapo, the Atacama region’s gritty capital. Some have strained relationships with the families who held vigil, praying for their survival. All face a search for work since the mine that employed them has filed for bankruptcy. Miner Carlos Mamani lives in a small green wooden house on an unpaved road in Padre Negro, a neighborhood on a hill where the glittering street lights of Copiapo stretch out like a carpet. But Padre Negro’s 38 houses lack access to sewers and running water. Mamani and his neighbors must walk

for blocks to two public taps to get water and then carry it back up the hill. “This area is dangerous at night. Drugs are sold here and there is theft. I’ve lived here for a while and I still have to be careful to avoid problems,” said one of Mamani’s neighbors, 15-year-old Jose Vadillo. Some miners live closer to central Copiapo, in a neighborhood where gangs mark their territory with old sneakers hanging from electricity poles. Bugueno is among those living in Tiltil Bajo, a neighborhood of wood-and-tin houses that lack sewage connections. Chile’s government has promised to look out for the rescued miners, and each has about $12,000 in donations waiting for them in bank accounts, but their futures remain uncertain. Seven of the miners held a news conference Saturday to plead for job training and government benefits. They also pleaded for privacy, citing the media’s treatment of fellow miners Johnny Barrios and Claudio Yanez. Barrios’ wife and lover, who live a block away from one another, both arrived at the mine following the Aug. 5 collapsed that trapped them, launching a high-profile soap opera. The wife accepted his donations, while Barrios went home with the lover. Yanez’s strained relationships were on display when the media waited outside his mother’s house, where his family had prepared a welcome-home party, and he didn’t show up. He went instead to the home of the mother of his two children, a woman he proposed marriage to while underground. Yanez’s sister, cameras in tow, later threw a rock at the woman’s house, and yelled that he can forget having his family to support him. The miners are getting substantial offers of money for their story, but made a pact to say little about their ordeal while negotiating movie and book rights.

U.N. police spokesman Jean-Francois Vezina said three inmates were killed in the country still reeling from a devastating earthquake.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Two inmates were shot to death trying to escape from the roof of Haiti’s quake-damaged national penitentiary and a third was trampled to death inside during a prison riot Sunday, authorities said. U.N. police spokesman Jean-Francois Vezina said at least 100 U.N. police were inside Haiti’s biggest prison when the uprising occurred. Inmates briefly held seven foreigners hostage — three U.N. police, two U.N. corrections officials and two unidentified visitors touring the facility — before releasing them, some with minor injuries, he said. The violence inside the blue-and-white concrete building in downtown Port-au-Prince erupted Sunday morning when an inmate faked illness, then stole a guard’s weapon after he was taken to the infirmary, Justice Ministry official Joseph Felix Badio told The Associated Press. Badio said seven police officers were injured inside the prison that holds about   1,500 inmates, but national police said they could not confirm that. Video shot by a local journalist from a nearby building and obtained by the AP showed U.N. and Haitian police moving around outside the walls,

shooting upward at inmates on the roof. A man is seen running on the roof, carrying a long black object, as a voice off camera says, “He has a gun.” It is unclear if the object is a weapon. No prisoners were seen shooting in the video. Neighborhood witnesses said they saw rocks thrown from the roof at the street, and pointed out damage to cars. U.N. peacekeepers from Jordan, Brazil and other countries used armored vehicles and assault rifles to keep onlookers — and journalists — away during and immediately after the unrest. Haitian police stood guard closer to the building. Police officials familiar with the prison said some inmates had escaped. They agreed to discuss the unrest on condition they not be identified because they were not authorized to talk to the news media. Sunday’s uprising continued a long saga of unrest and dangerous conditions in Haiti’s prisons. In the chaos after the devastating earthquake on Jan. 12, thousands of prisoners escaped from the dangerously overcrowded penitentiary, including some well-known, dangerous gang leaders. A week later, at least 12 prisoners were killed and 40 wounded during an escape attempt at a prison in the southern town of Les Cayes, which was outside the zone damaged by the quake.

Correction Contrary to what was printed in Tuesday’s article, “Gallup students: Schmidly ignored us,” the no-confidence vote was taken by the leadership of the Gallup student senate as part of the Aug. 25 list of grievances, not in Friday’s student town hall.

LOBO BASKETBALL

Spare-no-expense arena a wonder of college basketball world by Shaun Griswold

shaun24@dailylobo.com UNM basketball fans, meet your new Pit. Still “a mile high and louder than ...”, University Arena will have fans’ ears ringing even more with a state-of-theart sound system. Eliminating The Pit’s mezzanine levels also made room for 40 suites, and UNM got a liquor license to serve alcohol only at the suite level. High glass walls and stone alabaster tiles provide the structure’s base. The editions helped the contractor reach a LEED silver rating for energy

efficiency, and 95 percent of construction waste materials were recycled, according to the Pit renovation fact sheet. “I have tried telling everyone else how spectacular it is,” UNM head men’s basketball coach Steve Alford said. “Our guys are very excited about moving into the best venue in college basketball.” The $40 million loan the Athletics Department took out to finish funding the project will be repaid through naming license agreements on various concourse stands and the arena. Almost two-thirds of the loan will be recouped through sales of the 40 suites and 365 club seats, said Tim Cass, senior associ-

ate athletics director. Already widely considered one of the best basketball venues in the nation, The Pit now has more parking spaces and a drop-off circle at the east entrance. But Lobo fans, don’t stare too long; it’s what’s inside that counts. While official seating capacity is slightly lower (17,126), more than 75,000 square feet of space has been added for accessibility. Banners of former Lobos Danny Granger and Luc Longley hang inside The Pit. Two more-than-24-foot video screens hang from the north and south mezzanine levels.

Alford said the fan’s experience will be elevated to professional heights, and home team player introductions will be theatrical. Not only that, but concession stands have tripled, and fans can choose food from a Mexican grill, a pizzeria and a sandwich shop. “I think it’s nice,” junior guard Phillip McDonald said. “Coach hasn’t taken us in yet, but he will eventually. From the outside of the building, I like it, and I think it’s one of the best facilities I have been in.” So far, Athletics has sold 38 suites priced at $40,000 a year, and the suites require a three-year minimum con-

tract agreement, according to the fact sheet. Each has a flat screen television, plush leather seats, a bar and a hanging view of the action below. “The electronics in the new Pit is something that we’re really excited about,” Alford said. “I think that was something missing in the old Pit. … I think during nonconference it will be cool to watch what the rest of the league is doing. Our fans can now follow that on the scoreboards, and we are fortunate enough to crack the top 25 again like we did last year. What are the other top-25 teams doing in the country?”

A Alford’s well-established program well aware that this year is not last year H L lobo men’s basketball

by Shaun Griswold shaun24@unm.edu

Even after a 30-win season and a trip to the NCAA tournament, the UNM men’s basketball team still can’t get any respect. The Lobos were picked to finish third in the 2010-11 Mountain West Conference preseason poll, behind BYU and San Diego State. By now, junior guard Phillip McDonald said he expects the Lobos to be picked third in the conference. “I am kind of used to it,” he said. “This happens every year. It���s happened since my freshman and sophomore year. … This is nothing new to me. That’s good because we have a chip on our shoulders now, and we can just come out with more focus and be more prepared.” Head coach Steve Alford said McDonald will be a larger part of

the team’s guard-heavy lineup this year. “You know Phillip is going to be out there,” Alford said. “I can’t play 13 guys, so guys are going to be fighting for minutes and roles early (in preseason). Last year we had some new faces, but at least they’re things that were defined a little bit. But we don’t have a lot of those definitions yet with this team.” UCLA transfer Drew Gordon, named the preseason MWC Newcomer of the Year, also joins the Lobos’ ranks this season. In 41 games as a Bruin, Gordon averaged 4.7 points and 3.7 rebounds per game. His impact, however, will not be felt until the end of the fall semester when he is eligible because of NCAA transfer rules. Gordon said it’s an honor to receive the preseason acknowledgment. “It’s something that means a lot to me knowing that people still

recognize me as being very talented and athletic,” he said. “For the most part, I have gotten that award by playing basketball and being on this team. I am going to keep doing what I have to do.” The Lobos will also need bigger contributions from forward A.J. Hardeman and newcomer center Alex Kirk. Guards Jamal Fenton and newcomers Tony Snell and Emmanuel Negedu will be integral parts of the Lobos’ backcourt. “We’ve got a lot of new faces and a lot of them are young,” Alford said. “So they don’t really know what’s going on at this point. This is their first deal with college basketball. We’ve established our program, so they are coming into an established program that understands winning championships, and that makes for some great practices in my mind.” Ryan Tomari contributed to this report.

The Independent Voice of UNM since 1895

Senior guards the Pit’s renovated front gates by Ryan Tomari

rtomari@unm.edu Mr. Gary, here is the key to the Lobo-mobile. There is no doubt that UNM point guard Dairese Gary is in the Lobos’ driver’s seat this season. But how about this nod for Gary heading into his fourth and final year at UNM: a National Player of the Year candidate and first-team All-Mountain West Conference. Gary said his teammates and coaches push him every day to become the best basketball player he can be. “Coach Alford is kind of tough,” he said. “He is always on me.” Much like Roman Martinez during the 2009-10 season, Gary is UNM’s only senior. But it doesn’t faze him since he is a threeyear returning starter at point guard, and he is already filling Martinez’s spot nicely. “Our league is very strong this year, and it’s the strongest it’s been in a while,” Gary said. “You have teams coming back with the same players  starters  so just going into our

first practice, we know the things that we have to do, things we have to work on to get better. We know how much time we have to put in, because it’s going to be a struggle, but you have to put in that work to get results.” Cloaked by Martinez and Darington Hobson’s shadows last season, Gary was the behind-the-scenes director, but he was just as responsible — if not more so — for UNM’s school-record 30 wins. He also elevated his play against Washington in the second round of the NCAA tournament, but UNM was halted, 82-64. Yet Gary was the best Lobo on the court that day. Besides creating his own “Iron Man” streak at UNM  he started his 97th straight game for the Lobos against the Huskies  Gary was the Lobos’ spark in an attempted comeback that fell short. Gary played 32 minutes, tying a career-high in points (25). He was 11-of-20 from the field and dished out four assists. He was also head coach Steve Alford’s first UNM recruit when Alford took the reins of the program four years

ago. Alford said Gary’s experience will power the Lobos this season. “As I said at (MWC) media day in Denver, as long as Dairese Gary is on the floor when the jump ball is present, I know we have a chance to win,” Alford said. “From a head coaching standpoint, that’s a lot of fun when you know the catalyst of your team, the point guard, (is) the leader of the team. You respect that much.” Without question, Gary deserves tons of respect. Because of his time playing running back and safety at Concord High School in Elkhart, Ind., Gary is strong and powerful enough to drive the lane and create scoring opportunities for his teammates. Last season, Gary banged up his body averaging 35 minutes per game and 13.1 points. He also hit 45 percent of his field goals. UNM forward A.J. Hardeman said with Gary at the wheel, he doesn’t need to be a backseat driver; the team is safe with the veteran point guard. “We have to count on Dairese,” he said.

Dylan Smith/ Daily Lobo Members of the UNM women’s soccer team rejoice after the No. 25 Lobos defeated No. 8 BYU 1-0 Saturday at the UNM Soccer Complex. Senior Kate Wyrick scored the game’s only goal in double overtime on Senior Night.

No Lambert, no problem: No. 8 BYU falls in hyped, but not heated, game by Nathan Farmer

sports@dailylobo.com Overtime was just fine for the No. 25 UNM women’s soccer team. Senior Kate Wyrick, in her last Lobo home game, scored the golden goal three minutes into the second overtime, giving the Lobos a 1-0 victory over No. 8 BYU on Saturday. “Jen (Williams) got a piece of it with her head, and I came in and just finished it,” Wyrick said. “Everybody believes so much in the team. It’s so strong out UNM 1 there. It’s really 0 BYU hard for anyone to break us.” The game marked the first meeting between the Lobos and the Cougars since the infamous Elizabeth Lambert-Kassidy Shumway altercation at last year’s Mountain West Conference tournament. Lambert didn’t play Saturday.

And last year’s debacle appeared to be in the back of the referees’ minds. They officiated a tight match, calling a soft foul in the first 15 seconds of the game. “We came out tentatively because of all of the history, but we found our place about 20 minutes into the game,” Wyrick said. BYU goalkeeper McKinzie Olson made three saves in the last 20 minutes. She had 10 saves on the day. “We kept plugging away, and we did not get frustrated,” head coach Kit Vela said. The Cougars took multiple free kicks around the Lobos’ goal in the second half, but goalkeeper Kelli Cornell reacted instinctively and kept the game scoreless. With 10 minutes left, junior Roxie McFarland found herself alone at the back post, but could not direct a corner-kick volley into the back of the net. In overtime, both teams had a shot ricochet off the crossbar, and the Lobos looked to have scored

the game-winner, but Olson was there again. It was UNM’s night, though. Williams’ header redirected perfectly to Wyrick, who slammed it home for the game-winner. The Lobos dog-piled Wyrick, as her goal put the Lobos atop the MWC standings. Cornell earned her 10th shutout of the season. “It sounds unbelievable,” Vela said. “Anytime you can get a win against a good opponent, it’s a big morale booster.”
