Snow scarce at UNM, but snow day declared by Luke Holmen

Dylan Smith / Daily Lobo A jogger braves the cold on Johnson Field on Monday. A winter storm Sunday night and early Monday morning brought temperatures in parts of Albuquerque down to 2 degrees Fahrenheit. UNM was closed Monday due to extreme weather.

While flurries dusted UNM campus, as much as 6 inches of snow fell on other parts of the metro area beginning Sunday night and continuing into Monday. UNM spokeswoman Cinnamon Blair said representatives from the University President’s Office and UNMPD consult police in the metro area and around the state about road conditions to make a decision on whether to close the University. “We have the UNMPD officer commanders confer with Rio Rancho police and Albuquerque Police Department,” she said. “They discuss the road conditions across the city and make a decision. Since CNM and APS both decided to close, that also factored into the decision that was made.” UNM spokeswoman Karen Wentworth said the University’s primary concern is the safety of its students, staff and faculty. “It’s important to UNM that all our students are able to arrive safely and attend class safely, and that is why we called a snow day,” Wentworth said. “We try to track with

APS: one of the big considerations is that it is inconvenient for people with children to have class if their children don’t.” Blair said some employees are still required to go to work. UNMPD, University Hospital, and UNM’s Physical Plant Department remain open during snow days. “They have to stay open in case anything happens, and they also provide for students,” she said. The storm late Sunday night and early Monday morning brought temperatures in some parts of Albuquerque down to 2 degrees Fahrenheit, and parts of Rio Rancho and the North East Heights received nearly 6 inches of snow according to the National Weather Service. The storm is expected to dissipate today, but temperatures are expected to stay below freezing throughout the day Wednesday.

Leon Richter-Freund stores his collection of about 100 paper cards in a box, each card protected in an individual plastic sleeve. “This is $1,500, that pile right there,� he said at a meeting of the Cool Collectable Card Gamers club. Richter-Freund said the cards are from a popular trading card game, “Magic: The Gathering,� commonly referred to as Magic. The game, which began in 1993, is a complex strategy game made up of spells, creatures and the resources needed to power them, all printed on collectable cards, Richter-Freund said. “Some people spend money putting rims on their cars; I spend money on Magic cards because that’s what brings me joy,� he said. “I used to work a kind of crappy job, and after every paycheck I would buy new cards for my deck. It was a little bit of motivation.� Michael Dunagan, the club’s president, said that while he founded the club for enthusiasts of all collectible card games, at the group’s Friday night meetings gamers rarely play anything but Magic. “I really thought that there would be more diversity in the card games,� he said. Dunagan said he has grown more competitive since he first began collecting Magic cards in earnest. “I still collect some of the pricey cards because you can use so may of them that you wouldn’t be able to in standard (variations),� he said. One of those pricey cards is called a “foil.� “Foils� are distinguished by their shiny finish, Dunagan said.

“There’s a guy in town, his nickname is ‘Foil Dave’ because he collects nothing but foil cards,� he said. “He has probably the largest collection of foils in the state of New Mexico. His collection is probably worth tens of thousands of dollars, or just over $10,000 at the least.� He said online card catalogs list precise values of cards and ensure fair trading, as well as fair purchases from various vendors. Some collectors focus solely on collecting particular sets to resell. Instead of selling his cards for a profit, however, Dunagan said he collects his cards to play the game and build his own decks. “I’m not going into it like a game of investment,� he said. Outside of the time and money put into collecting a deck of cards, Richter-Freund said there’s a strong sense of community with the card collectors, who readily share their most valuable cards with fellow gamers. “As a collector, I’m protective to a point,� he said. “But as much as I might have spent, at the end of the day they’re pieces of paper and there are more important things in life.�

theater review

Courtesy of The Box Performance Space and Improv Theatre. Left to right: Melissa Heiman, Kara Clem and Alex Knight improvise a scene for a series of skits called “The Show.� The performers take suggestions from the audience for lines, scenes or characters to depict or incorporate into the “comic gold� they spin on the spot. “The Show� runs through Dec. 19.

Improv team sharply funny by Justino Brokaw

Congratulate Last Week’s

Lobo Winners! Men’s Basketball

defeated Idaho State 65-41 Missouri State 76-60

Improvisation demands intense confidence and the ability to think on your feet, and performers in “The Show� make it look easy. Six actors, accompanied by musician Seymour Muchmore, take cues from the audience for each sketch, turning suggested locations, relationships and dialogue into comic gold. No idea seems off limits — in fact, the performers seem to relish the challenge of stringing together the weirdest suggestions and finding humor in them. Many times, as soon as an interesting idea manifests in a scene, Muchmore finds the perfect background tune on his keyboard, heightening the comedic effect. Whether a sketch satirizes horror films, depicts true love or makes up musicals, he’s got the music covered. The cast’s chemistry is impressive. There isn‘t any sign of the

inflated egos or neediness that can so easily bog down improv. In fact, if there’s one overall impression “The Show� leaves you with, it’s the performers’ professionalism. Sharply dressed, with the confidence to match, they emit an energy that puts the audience at ease. Transitions between sketches zip right along, and the show is never in danger of lulling or losing momentum. The 5- to 10-minute sketches almost always leave you wanting more, and if there‘s one complaint to make about “The Show,� it’s the cruelly short running time of 45 minutes. “The Show,� and improv itself, isn’t about star performers. On the night I saw it, each performer had at least a few memorable, hilarious moments. But some performers stand out, such as Melissa Heiman, who gives each character a unique and quirky physicality. UNM student Patrick Gozur often achieves a subtle humor that

might take a moment to sink in. Each of the actors has his or her own comedic talents, but they all combine wonderfully. Performer Alex Knight’s talents are possibly the worst-kept secret in Albuquerque, and those familiar with him won’t be surprised to hear that he frequently shines. Whether it’s his unique renditions of characters and scenes, or simply the glee of his reactions as scenes escalate, he’s often the catalyst for “The Show’s� most unexpected laugh-out-loud moments.

New Mexico Daily Lobo

Capricorn — You might feel an overwhelming sense of guilt as you become incapable of dealing with stress properly. You feel you deserve a break, and perhaps that’s true, but what’s more beneficial is a break from your steady stream of inner criticism. The only way to shut up your critic is to prove your worth to it. You have what it takes, you just need to act without letting the exhaustion sap your motivation. Aquarius — A sense of dread seizes you when you consider the pattern developing in your life. Important changes are coming, calling you make adjustments as necessary. It’s easy to defend your stability by rationalizing the merit of your situation, and thereby making change wrong. This concept is rooted in fear of failure. Understand that this change is all for the better, so it is best to take it in stride. Pisces — Rising from deep in your heart is the need to connect to society as a whole. Individual interactions test your patience with the endless inanities of small talk and absorbing people’s seething criticism and negativity. Why can’t everyone else see the rosy world you find yourself lost in? I don’t expect this question will be answered soon, but it is worth considering it as the basis for a new life direction. Aries — There’s something that plagued you subconsciously for a while now, and it may be time to deal with it. While Mercury is in retrograde motion, you should avoid confronting an individual about past disputes, especially if you are trying to make amends. Spend time considering scenarios in which you play out different plans of action. Your interest should gravitate toward the long-term. This is a good time to think about the big picture.

Taurus — You can no longer ignore the disconnect between your mind and body, as it is crucial for the two to work together. Lately, you switch between consciousness in both arenas and leave loose ends that are now coming back to haunt you. Your problem is thinking too much without acting. Address your obligations and your mind will be ready to deal with the larger problems you’re experiencing. Gemini — A flurry of activity in the past weeks sent your mind spinning. Now that your mind has abandoned the physical realm in favor of intellectual pursuits and socializing, you may behave in a way that falsely reflects your true thoughts. Remember this change if you’re not too baffled by the affronted looks of those you typically have a friendly rapport with. On the upside, this could be a foray into new relationships you may not have considered in your “right mind.” Cancer — Your daily routine, which affords you a degree of comfort in its predictability, feels increasingly restrictive. With Sagittarian influences this month, you feel compelled to make radical changes for a richer experience, something like a vacation. Allow yourself respites throughout the day to collect your thoughts so you can experience grand and ordinary phenomena of the world. You’d be amazed at the wondrous things that are often right in front of us, if only we paused to look. Leo — You can make great leaps under present cosmic conditions, as long as you don’t let the opinions of others influence your actions. You should consider what you want, not at the moment, but in general. With Mars in Virgo, your body is aching

to be tested with hard labor, so set yourself to a task and let your mind wander the possibilities that could lead to a new future. Virgo — The snowy environment reflects your present situation, except Albuquerque is your mind. Your conscious roams blindly and explores the familiar in strange conditions. You notice more and more instances of what you considered impossible actually happening in reality. This is concept is scary because such instances challenge your beliefs. Use this surreal nature to your benefit. Limits are lifted, and allow you to move toward goals you previously thought impossible. Libra — Just like extracting the interesting bits of movies and condensing them into a preview, you are rejecting the banal in search of something more fulfilling. This quest is worthy, though it feels as though you are losing yourself in the process. If your head rises too far into the clouds, it’s easy to lose touch with the familiar world, though maintaining contact is important for a warm welcome upon your return. Find a travel companion for your physical or intellectual ventures, to preserve your connections with others. Scorpio — You can’t help but share everything on your mind these days, which can get you in trouble just as easily as it let new people into your life. You have much to offer, and you feel that giving yourself away is the best way to reach a world you feel alienated by. Keep this idea in mind when you make plans in the next couple of weeks to avoid losing energy. It is possible to be selective about your associations without being critical. Sagittarius — An attitude change is necessary, but once achieved you will find doors opening left and right. This concept is probably new to you, as your disposition tends to be sunny and receptive, qualities that you and many others consider ideal. Right now, it is easy for others to take advantage of these characteristics. Rather than sheer optimism, the coming weeks call for an honest assessment of yourself and for you to present yourself as such. Don’t let the fear of rejection keep you from revealing your true feelings.

Stressed about finals? The Daily Lobo has your back. Check out these quick study tips from Paulette Baca, student manager for workshops and study strategies at CAPS. Look over your notes Get a basic idea of what has been covered in the class. Identify your weak and strong areas and prioritize. Start with your weak areas first so if you run out of time you will have spent it studying what you didn’t know rather than what you just needed to review. Read the book Textbooks are helpful when you are in need of more in-depth knowledge than your notes, or when you need visual representations like charts or graphs. Do extra problems, especially for math and science classes.

Show me how to: Not fail all of my finals

If you were only assigned the even-numbered problems, do the odds. Check your answers with your book, professor or TA. Use the study guides given out by most teachers. Not all classes have them, but if they do have study guides, this is a teacher’s way of telling you exactly what you need to know to pass the test. If your teacher didn’t make a study guide, ask him or her what will be on the test and take notes. Study in a group Another perspective is often helpful. If you missed any information, your friends may be able to help you. If they don’t understand a concept, you might be able to explain it to them. Make sure to stay on track and motivated by holding each other accountable. Make a study plan — Don’t cram. The worst thing you can do is study for eight hours straight and take a test on no sleep.

New Mexico Daily Lobo

your study schedule in advance and stick to it. What classes are most difficult? Which finals come first and which do you have more time for? Break it down by what classes are most important and which finals are coming soonest. Get a good night’s rest on test day. You will wake up more refreshed and a lot more of your information will be processed. If you don’t sleep enough you might not actually retain what you were studying. Eat a solid breakfast. Many students will probably ignore tip no. 6 and cram for the exam anyway. If you do, don’t take a test on a stomach full of the red bull, Big Macs and Snickers bars you used to help you finish studying the night before. Eat some cereal or fruit before the big day. Be prepared. Look over the test requirements — do you need a blue book, a calculator or a certain pencil?

The Independent Voice of UNM since 1895

LAST WEEK’S POLL RESULTS: Do you think accusations made by the NAACP that UNM are discriminatory against African Americans is warranted? No. African Americans are proportionally represented on campus and I don’t 59% think they were discriminated against. Yes. African Americans are historically underrepresented at UNM and some- 25% thing needs to change. I’m indifferent


Out of 85 responses

THIS WEEK’S POLL: Last week, The 10 former ASUNM senate candidates accused of financial misconduct appealed the punishments issued to them by ASUNM Elections Commission. (See story on page 7) Do you think the group should be exonerated? Yes, their mistake was an honest one, and there’s no reason to keep them out of the senate. No, they lied about their breach of spending. They can’t be trusted. Maybe, the rest of the senators should be allowed to vote but Brandyn Jordan should be barred. I am indifferent to ASUNM.



LETTER Israel Alliance ad full of lies about Palestine, speaker Editor, In the Dec. 2 issue of the Daily Lobo, there was an advertisement published by the UNM Israel Alliance on page six. The advertisement depicted the visiting speaker, Dr. Norman Finkelstein, a scholar and author, as a liar. In the advertisement, it says “Think Finkelstein lies about Israel? You can’t believe everything you hear. But you can research the truth for yourself.” The UNM Israel Alliance’s website is printed at the bottom of the advertisement. The site is full of links to one-sided websites that defame Palestinians as savages who are unworthy, which is very racist and insulting. Dr. Finkelstein is a respected scholar and author who continues to dedicate his life to human rights. Both of his parents are survivors of the Holocaust, which he says is precisely why he will not be silent when Israel commits its crimes against the Palestinians. I do agree with one sentiment that appeared in the Israel Alliance advertisement: you can’t believe everything you hear. The media coverage on Israel/Palestinian relations is always biased. They continue to portray Palestinians as terrorists who want to destroy Israel. What you don’t see in the media is the fact that Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank are under military occupation and are being harassed, beaten or even murdered by the Israeli military and government. In Gaza during 2008, the Israeli military made a full assault on the people in Gaza, who are literally trapped because of the apartheid wall built all along the borders. The Israel military completely massacred the people of Gaza, with 1,400 innocent civilians killed, and more



Undergraduate core classes wasted my time

Dear Wooley, I am a grad student, and I currently find myself in a specialized field of study. As I sit here studying for my new courses I can’t help but think the core classes were a waste of time. I reason it would have been more beneficial for me to have taken more science courses and be better prepared for the rigors of my new program, but instead I had to waste time with core classes. I can understand a university wanting you to be well-rounded, but I feel that is what high school was for, and once a person reaches college, it’s his responsibility to become wellrounded on his own time. Please, Wooley, shed some light, different or congruent, on this topic and perhaps inspire a university to actually start helping its students achieve greatness rather than smashing them full of mediocrity. -Shaken to the core Dear Shaken, I don’t really feel like I’m the one to explain why what courses have what classes and the reason those classes are there, mainly because I don’t know. I know that there are people at the university who decide these things, and for the most part I’ve taken classes that give me a whole new perspective on issues, different cultures and other ways of thinking. That goes in with that “well-rounded” education you reference, I suppose. Your reasoning for an emphasis on better high school preparation is valid. However, you have to take into account a number of inconsistencies in funding and quality of education from state to state and district to district. We have students studying at UNM from all across the country. How can a university guarantee every student can form a persuasive argument to defend their ideas, be knowledgeable about world than 300 of those civilians were children under the age of 16. I recommend that everyone research this issue and really look beyond biased resources that the Israel Alliance presents. In your research, you will see that there is no balance in this issue. There is the oppressor who is occupying the oppressed, indigenous population. I also recommend everybody come see Dr. Norman Finkelstein speak. There will be

events or have a civil conversation? The university gives students choices, and a lot of them, in various areas of focus, on top of the specific area of study. The beauty of UNM’s registry is that we as students can sign up for whichever classes we want. Across majors, there are specific classes that departments say “if you want a degree in this, you need these courses,” but we can still take whatever it is we want other than those required. That freedom is a blessing and a responsibility. Perhaps you knew you were going into grad school, or maybe you decided at the last minute. Regardless, at some point in your undergraduate career you decided you were going to take Religion 107. You also decided you were not going to take upper-level science courses. Those decisions aren’t good or bad, right or wrong, but are simply your decisions. Our decisions shape our experiences and what we “get out of college.” I believe you’ll get out of college what you put into it. If you want good grades, study your tail off. If you want friends, you go be a friend to someone. If you want to know about science because you’re going into grad school, take science courses. Make your classes align with your goals or desired direction in life. Too focused or don’t know quite yet what you want to do? At least ask yourself when signing up for classes how each might benefit you, both next semester and beyond school. What specifically are you wanting to get out of the class? What are your expectations and what experiences might you have? Still unsure? Go visit the professor teaching the class or shoot them an email with questions. Your experiences, ultimately, will be a culmination of the choices you make.

Procrastination buries students in rushed work

thing students can do to improve their papers? I want to get a good grade and finish the semester strong. -Worried Writer Dear Worried, It’s time to buckle down. You’ll need to really manage your time wisely in the next few days and get things done. Common mistakes are often silly grammatical errors such as a lack or misuse of punctuation, or spelling errors. Other common issues are half-developed thoughts, rough transitions from one topic to the next and forgetting to include basic tenants of a paper, such as a thesis or citing sources. What’s my “No. 1” suggestion to fix these mistakes? Most problems can be fixed if the author simply reads his or her paper aloud. Does the essay “sound right?” Is it understandable? Does it make sense? You’ll find the majority of the mistakes in your writing if you simply do this step. Secondly, give it to a friend. Ask them to read it out loud and check for basic things such as a thesis, topic and transitional sentences. If you can avoid writing the paper the night before it’s due (though everyone does it), you’ll give yourself more time to revise. You also allow yourself to work through a writing process (researching, brainstorming, organizing, etc.), rather than just putting out the paper like a manufactured product. In the end, is what you’re writing your best work? Do you take pride in the piece you’re turning in? If not, and you’re cool with that, sweet — be content. If so, then continually try to make yourself better. Go to CAPS’ drop-in lab and see if its tutors can make some suggestions, or go to your classmates or your professor. All of these people are just as helpful and more than willing to lend a hand. Good luck with all those papers!

Dear Wooley, I have a crapload of papers to write in the next two weeks … mainly because I procrastinated. What are common mistakes students make in writing papers? What is the No. 1

If you have questions and need answers, please send an email to Wooleysweeklywisdom@gmail. com He’ll be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you might have. Be sure to check out his Facebook page, ask-ryan-wooley.

plenty of people and resources to help answer your questions. He is speaking this evening in the SUB Ballroom B. The Israel/Palestine issue is not one of religion or politics, it’s about human rights. If you believe in human rights, that freedom and peace should be guaranteed to all, then you will side with the oppressed.

     Adria Malcolm / Daily Lobo UNM sophomore Dominic Chavez fills out raffle tickets for the American Chemical Society Student Chapter’s benefit raffle. The raffle’s grand prize is a free parking space in B Lot valued at $700. Students can also win gift cards from local businesses. All proceeds will be donated to Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Central New Mexico.

Win a parking spot for $5 by Jessica Hitch

Students can donate to charity this Wednesday and Thursday and maybe snag a parking spot worth $700 while they’re at it. Thanks to the American Chemical Society Student Chapter’s benefit raffle, one student will win the use of a space in B Lot for the spring semester. All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Central New Mexico, which the group chose because it helps young people succeed, said Alice Martinic, UNM ACSSC pesident.

Benefits slashed if bill passes by Charlie Shipley The New Mexico State Legislature is to vote in January on a measure that would reduce benefits for retirees and establish a minimum retirement age after the measure passed in legislative committee on Friday. The plan, which reduces retirees’ Cost of Living Adjustment from 2 percent to 1.75 percent and establishes a minimum retirement age of 55, narrowly passed 4-3 during the New Mexico Legislature’s Investment and Pensions Oversight Committee meeting Friday. The plan now awaits approval by the New Mexico Legislature during the legislative session, which begins Jan. 17. Mary Clark, the UNM Staff Council

president, said the Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) is a percentage of a retiree’s total retirement compensation that increases yearly to combat inflation, and if the proposed decrease is approved, retirees’ yearly cost of living allowance won’t keep up with rising prices. “I’m very disappointed they changed the COLA,” she said. “That’s not fair.” The proposed decrease means retirees receiving the ERB average allowance of about $20,000 per year would get an average annual increase of $350 instead of $400, said Jan Goodwin, ERB executive director, to the Albuquerque Journal. ERB members don’t receive their COLA until age 65. The proposal establishes a minimum retirement age of 55. Currently, there is no set age; employees can retire after working

for 25 years. The proposal includes a “grandfather period” that would allow current workers already eligible for retirement and those that will be eligible within 10 years of when plan takes effect to be exempt from the minimum age requirement. ERB Chairwoman Mary Lou Cameron said the proposed changes are intended to improve the ERB’s funding ratio, which measures assets against liabilities. The current ratio is 61 percent. “The proposal is consistent with the board’s goal of improving the retirement plan’s funding ratio to 80 percent by 2030 and 95 percent by 2040, and ensuring its long-term sustainability,” she said in a Nov. 21 statement.

Lobo Basketball Recap

Shooters secure 16-point win

Strong defense nets victory

Like true wolves, the Lobos surrounded Missouri State early in the game on Saturday, and kept their prey down for a 76-60 victory. UNM came out firing, hitting four early 3-pointers en route to a 20-4 lead, with 11:52 remaining in the first half. The Lobos never trailed in the game. “I thought we really came out with a lot of urgency and intensity,” head coach Steve Alford said. “Our defense is getting better. I thought we did a really good job taking them out of their stuff.” Missouri State hit only two shots in the first 10 minutes as UNM’s defense swarmed and caused seven turnovers during that time span. UNM’s biggest lead was 33-9, which came at 6:35 left in the first half, and the Lobos led at halftime 39-23. MSU tried to mount a comeback in the second half, cutting the deficit down to 12 points multiple times, but UNM stayed strong and didn’t let the lead dip to single digits. “We were really hot in the first half; we were making shots and getting stops defensively,” said freshman guard Hugh Greenwood. “The second half, they were scoring and it kind-of took our rhythm away. Defense is a priority and we kind of let that slip in the second half.” The best chance for the Bears to make it a game came with 2:16 left, as Missouri State’s Corey Copeland had a layup on a fast break opportunity to cut the lead to 10 points, but missed it. After the miss, sophomore guard Demetrius Walker delivered the final blow with an old-school 3-point play as he was fouled on a layup with 1:48 left in the game. The Bears never reared again, and the Lobos went on to win by 16 points to boost their record to 6-2, while MSU fell to 4-2. The win was the fourthstraight for UNM. Four Lobos had double-digit points, with sophomore guard Kendall Williams leading all scorers with 19 (a career high), Walker with 16, sophomore guard Tony Snell with 12, and Greenwood with 11. Alford said Williams played well, not only by scoring points, but by doing a little bit of everything else. “I thought Kendall was really good,” Alford said. “Kendall is very active and very hard to guard. His stat line is all over the place as far as numbers; he

First-year head women’s basketball coach Yvonne Sanchez snagged her first rival win against New Mexico State in the Rio Grande Rivalry on Sunday. With scores tied at 53, senior guard Lauren Taylor hit a free throw with 30 seconds left to take the lead, and the Lobo defense held on as UNM won 54-53 in front of 7,551 fans for Pack The Pit. “It’s a huge win,” Sanchez said. “To get a one-point win in the tough situation we were in just speaks volumes. Hopefully they feel everything is turning around a bit.” UNM went 20-45 shooting in the game, but started with only eight healthy players. The leading scorer, junior guard Caroline Durbin, started on the bench for the first time this season because of the flu. Regardless, the Lobos started the game with a 10-0 run and held NMSU scoreless until 12:40 left in the first half. Taylor led the team with 13 points and said the Lobos’ offense was perfect at the beginning of the game. “We were playing motion really well,” she said. “They were getting lost in a lot of the screens and we played it really well.” A late run by the Aggies closed the gap to a three-point difference, and the Lobos led 27-24 into half. Much as they did in the first half, the Lobos dominated with a 14-4 run in the first six minutes of the second half for a 15-point lead. With 10 minutes left, NMSU put UNM in a full-court press that led to four quick turnovers. Sanchez said the team needs to figure out a way to limit its turnovers when the opposing team plays fullcourt press defense on them. “That’s just our Achilles’ heel,” she said. “We still have to work on it. It’s one of those things like your shot: you’ve got to keep working on it. People are going to press us, so we have to make sure we solve it with something.” NMSU had 25 points off of UNM’s 18 turnovers, and with 6:13 left the Aggies took their first lead, 48-47. The Aggies led by four points with five minutes remaining, but the Lobos dwindled it down to a 53-53 tie with 30 seconds left.

rebounded and got assists he did a lot of good things.” Three-pointers helped UNM early as team members made seven of their first nine attempts, to make 10-22 for the game, while MSU only made 5-25. The major advantage for the Lobos, however, was from the freethrow line as they outshot the Bears 35-5. UNM made 24 while Missouri State only made 3. Limiting the opponent’s free-throw attempts has been a key improvement from the beginning of the season, Alford said. “We’ve had two games in a row

that our opponents have shot a total of 10 free throws,” Alford said. “Our defense has come a long way in a month because four weeks ago teams were shooting 30 free-throws against us.” Williams said the defense has been exceptional in the past couple of games and that the experience the Lobos have been picking up has also helped. “Our defense looks real good; that’s how we’ve gotten off to good starts these past games,” Williams said. “We’re just learning. We’re still a young team and I think the experience is picking up a lot and it’s showing in our performances.”

Adria Malcolm / Daily Lobo UNM’s Porche Torrance blocks a shot by NMSU’s No. 22 Kelsie Rozendaal on Sunday at The Pit. The Lobos won the game 54-53 to go to 3-5 on the season.

Taylor got fouled bringing the ball up the court and hit one of two free throws, giving the Aggies the ball with 25 seconds left and a chance to win. But the Lobo defense didn’t allow NMSU a shot, as senior forward Porche Torrance blocked NMSU’s Kaitlyn Soto’s layup as time ran out on the shot clock. The block was one of Torrance’s five in the game to go along with her seven steals and 10 points. “They could have dropped their shoulders when they went

up four,” Sanchez said. “We have dropped three games by three or less points. It kind of gets with your psyches sometimes when you do that.” The Lobos are now 4-5. Taylor said it felt good to finally be on the winning side of a close game. “We lost some of those other games by two or three, but we said ‘not this game, were getting this game,’ ” she said. “The last timeout we said ‘we are winning this thing. Whatever you have to do to get it done, we’re getting it done.’ ”

Guards’ chemistry vital to winning streak by Mundo Carrillo

The guards of the men’s basketball team defended the Lobos’ four game winning streak. Four guards, freshman Hugh Greenwood and sophomores Kendall Williams, Tony Snell and Demetrius Walker, snagged double-digit points. They scored a combined 58 of the Lobos’ 76 total points. Williams reached a career-high 19 points to help the Lobos pull off a 16-point victory over the Bears. While the other guards busied themselves making shots, Williams drove through the lane and picked up fouls on his way to the basket. He added 10 points from the free-throw line.

“I thought our activity in the guard position was really good,� head coach Steve Alford said. “Hugh made some shots, Tony made some shots. Kendall was very active and was very hard to guard.� The Lobos got off to a 10-0 start, thanks to shooting from Snell and Greenwood. The first six points of the game came courtesy of two straight 3-pointers from Snell. Snell and Greenwood ended the game with three 3-pointers each. Greenwood ended with 11 points and added his first blocked shot of the season. Greenwood said he is starting to get more comfortable with his shooting skills. “I’ve been more aggressive

these last few games,� he said. “Shooting is a strength of mine.� Walker added two more 3-pointers for the Lobos and scored 16 points coming off the bench. “I thought D-Walk (Walker) came in and really provided a spark for us,� Alford said. “He did a lot of good things for us coming off the bench.� Williams said the guards are starting to build chemistry together. “I like playing with Hugh; I like playing with Jamal (Fenton),� Williams said. “Hugh is starting to come into his own and it makes for a good environment.� Greenwood, Snell, Walker and Williams also combined for 19 rebounds. Greenwood and Williams had six each.

The scoring from the guards made up for the lack of production from the post, as senior forwards A.J. Hardeman and Drew Gordon and sophomore forward Cameron Bairstow combined for 13 points. The Lobos were also without senior guard Phillip McDonald for most of the game. McDonald injured his ankle after only four minutes. Even though four guards reached double-digit points, Alford said he couldn’t care less how many players pull off that feat. “It doesn’t matter if we have four or zero,� Alford said. “If we win, I’m always going to be pretty happy.�
