The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895

Proposal aims to reduce child abuse in state By Sayyed Shah The New Mexico Legislature is considering a proposal to fund the establishment of a new center at UNM specializing in child maltreatment. Funding will allow the Child Abuse Response Team at the UNM Health Sciences Center to bring in staff dedicated to supporting the center and expand clinical services to better reach areas outlying the metro area, said Dr. Leslie Strickler, medical director for the Child Abuse Response Team and associate professor of pediatrics at UNM Children’s Hospital. “Our goal is to improve clinical care, education, advocacy and collaboration between all stakeholders and incorporate primary, secondary and tertiary prevention initiatives,” Strickler said. Funding will allow CART to better recognize risk for abuse, occurrence of abuse and ultimately decrease the prevalence of abuse in New Mexico, she said. As compared to other states in the United States, New Mexico sees higher rates of abuse per capita and a greater number of deaths due to child abuse, Strickler said. While New Mexico’s ranking rose slightly from 50th in 2013 to 49th in 2014 in the national KIDS COUNT rankings of child wellbeing, state policymakers have not managed to make much progress toward improving how the state cares for its kids, according to a press release by New Mexico Voices for Children, a nonpartisan, statewide advocacy organization founded in 1987 by a group of pediatricians. The KIDS COUNT program

measures 16 indicators of child wellbeing, and New Mexico saw improvement in just five of those, the statement said. “Worse, child poverty — a main factor in poor outcomes — actually increased (from 28 percent to 31 percent) even as it decreased in most of the rest of the nation,” the press release stated. The annual state KIDS COUNT report stressed that state lawmakers should make a priority of addressing the needs of all children by supporting a holistic, coordinated and two-generation approach that serves both children and their families. “We recognize that the data change over one year does not provide a trend, but it is still concerning that some of our worst child wellbeing outcomes continue to decline,” said Veronica C. García, executive director of NM Voices. CART typically evaluates only 20 to 30 children a month, about half of whom ultimately are determined to be victims of abuse, Strickler said. “Although we see fewer patients than many other doctors, we spend a great deal of time with our patients — a minimum of 1 hour, and sometimes much more — and generate lengthy consultative reports and care coordination,” Strickler said. The scarcity of pediatricians who are board-certified in child abuse pediatrics worsens the issue. New Mexico has four child abuse specialists, and CART would like to add a fifth in the next one to two years, she said. “This level of staffing is barely

Jack White performs at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Jan. 30.

By Matthew Reisen Jack White is coming to Popejoy on Tuesday — arguably the biggest artist the venue has hosted in years — and the people who made it all happen couldn’t be more excited. Student Special Events booked White for a one-night concert in Popejoy Hall, a 2,000-capacity venue, only five days after the artist played a sold-out performance in New York’s Madison Square

Garden, an 18,200-seat auditorium. “It brings Popejoy a whole new audience, it’s not a Broadway show at all,” said Emily Garrity, marketing director for Student Special Events. Tickets went on sale for students the week of fall 2014 finals at $35, and to the public the following week for $58 each, Garrity said. All tickets were sold out on Jan.21.

Students representing every graduate school in the state advocated for higher education and presented their research and scholarship to lawmakers at the Roundhouse on Friday. The first-time event was coordinated by the New Mexico Council of Graduate Deans, and they intend for Graduate Education Day to become an annual event during the legislative session. Five UNM graduate students representing diverse fields displayed research projects. The Graduate and Professional Students Association representatives were present to further advocate for UNM’s many graduate programs. UNM produces 80 percent of the doctorate degrees and more than half of the graduate degrees in the state, said Julie Coonrod, dean of graduate studies at UNM. This means that opportunities to illustrate the importance of graduate school are a big deal for UNM. “I think this was a great opportunity for UNM graduate

students to come out and showcase the work they’re doing for their studies,” said Texanna Martin, president of UNM’s Graduate and Professional Student Association. “It really helps show that we want to continue being the number-one Ph.D. source in New Mexico.” There is great need, both statewide and nationwide, for more people to obtain higher education degrees. Last year 499 positions requiring advanced education degrees went unfilled in New Mexico and 122,000 of these positions were unfilled nationwide, according to the President of Eastern University, Dr. Steven Gamble. “Unless we become more attentive to this part of our education, New Mexico is going to have a very difficult time moving ahead to the next level of competition in the country, much less around the globe,” Gamble said. “One way to try to make people aware of this is having these kinds of forums, trying to get editorials and trying to testify to important committees.” UNM’s graduate school is a major pipeline to companies around the state that require advanced degrees.

For example, more employees of Los Alamos National Laboratories hold Ph.D.s from UNM than from any other university in the country, said Nancy Ambrosiano, LANL’s public relations officer. The UNM graduate students present at the event displayed work in subjects ranging from nanoscience to architecture. Amber McBride, a postdoctoral fellow, has developed an inhalable chemotherapeutic drug delivery system for lung cancer patients that could increase survival rates and reduce the side effects experienced with current chemotherapies. This form of drug delivery is magnetically responsive and has shown capabilities of targeting specific areas of the lung. Jacqueline Kocer, Ph.D. in Archaeology, has been studying the Gallina people, who lived about 50 miles northeast of Chaco Canyon from 1050-1300 A.D. She has examined the production of these people’s pots and tools and worked to understand if any interaction occurred between them

Derrick Garcia graduate student community and regional planning “Yes. I spend it sparingly to be honest. It’s a low limit — a credit-builder card.”

Sheldon Salazar junior business “No I don’t, but recently I have been thinking about getting one. I would just make sure to pay it off every month. Not go crazy with it — just spending it on normal stuff that I would buy just to build credit.”

Ingela Onstad graduate student counseling “I do have credit cards, and I manage them by making sure I stay on top of my balance every month. I make sure that I keep my credit good so the interest rates don’t get too out of control.”

Margarita McFadden sophomore history “Yes. I pay them every month — I pay the balance off every month. I pay attention to the credit limit. I already know what my credit limit is and then I stay within that amount, then I pay it off every month.”

Emily Crowder sophomore civil engineering “I don’t, but I’m planning on getting one because (I need to build credit). I have a debit card and I am planning on using it the same way. I transfer money every time I use it and that way too every time I use it, I remind myself of how much I put on it.”

Websites like are offering Orchestra Section tickets from $200 to $400, according to the company’s website. On Craigslist, sellers and buyers alike call for prices exceeding $250.

Although the collaborative effort of Student Special Events made the show happen, Garrity said it really began with one person — and was no easy show to schedule. Simon Kessler is promotions director for Student Special Events and the man who brought the possibility of Jack White to the table. “It’s an awesome opportunity: Nobody’s really going to get the chance to see Jack White in such a small theater,” Kessler said. “This is him in a tiny, intimate 2,000 capacity venue, so we think it’s really something special … I would say it fell into my lap, this show, but it also was networking with the right agents and just putting yourself on the map.” In November Kessler got a call from a friend who works as a music agent with William Morris Endeavor. The agent informed Kessler that White, a WME client, was on a tour that would take him close to Albuquerque, inviting Kessler to make an offer. Kessler said he spoke with Krista Marrs, executive director at SSE, and Ryan Lindquist, associate director at Student Activities. Both were extremely supportive of the idea of hosting Jack White and

experience in the field,” she said. “Form a community perspective, lack of education and awareness of abuse, and lack of public outcry and intervention for children at risk are major challenges.” Citizens and state government need to be more concerned about what is happening to their kids, and better support families in nurturing healthy children, she said. “We need to address the other public health crises that increase risk for child maltreatment. These include poverty, domestic vio-

acted fast to get the ball rolling. “We saw this opportunity and said, ‘we need to jump on it; it’s not like we’ll get to it tomorrow. We need to get it today,’” Kessler said. “That was probably some of the longest days I’ve had here. We probably were here 13 hours for 30 days in a row, just trying to push it through as quickly as possible.” Once an undisclosed offer was agreed upon between SSE and Jack White, Kessler and his coworkers sought out an appropriate venue, he said. The initial location they considered was WisePies Arena aka The Pit, but due to basketball scheduling it wasn’t available at the time. When Popejoy Hall became an option, White and his people were hesitant because the venue is a seating theater, Kessler said, whereas the artist is more accustomed to rock show audiences and venues that support those audiences with standing room. That didn’t stop the people at Student Special Events, who opted to build a small pit area in front of the stage at Popejoy, where up to 100 people can fit, he said. “It was kind of the turning point,” Kessler said. “We said, ‘We’ll do our best to make some kind of a pit; we can’t really start ripping seats out of the concrete, but we can make a hundred-person standing space.’ So we added that in the offer.” Tickets for the pit were understandably the most sought-after and the first to go, exclusively available to students who purchased tickets at the bookstore. After a month of back-and-forth negotiations along with an updated seat count to accommodate pit space, Kessler got the phone call: the show was on. “That was just an awesome moment, everybody was pumped,” Kessler said. “But we still kept it kind of quiet.

fice knew, along with a few people from ASUNM, but we hadn’t released yet.” Student Special Events worked on a release to begin the Wednesday before finals with student tickets going on sale the Thursday of finals week, he said. The next Monday, tickets were offered to the general public. Student discount tickets were offered at the Bookstore to only those who could provide a valid UNM student I.D. “It’s nice to work here at SSE because we have a little bit more wiggle room. If it’s a show that students are really going to like, we can subsidize tickets like we did with this Jack White show and charge students half the price that we are charging to the public,” Kessler said. “We don’t necessarily have to make all of our money back. As long as we’re making students happy and bringing acts that they’re interested in seeing, we’re doing our job.” Once the news got out, Garrity made promotional posters and fliers and sent a marketing proposal to 104.1 The Edge radio station, she said. The station was also given tickets to use for promotional giveaways. During this time, promotional posters and fliers were distributed by the “street team,” — and the rest is about to be history. “You’re always going to want to pursue the bigger, the better,” Garrity said. “We’re setting the bar kind of high for next year, but that’s a good thing. ‘Let’s push our limits, lets make it happen’ kind of thing.

and the people of Chaco Canyon. Her work will culminate in a better understanding of the nature of this ancient community. Michelle Miller, a graduate student in civil engineering, said she is developing a distillation method that could return municipal waste water to drinkable water quality so it could be reused by the community rather than being sent to the river. Theodore Edaakie, a graduate student of architecture, said he designed a Zuni Art Center that could give the Zuni Pueblo ideas about how to create a more beneficial platform for their art marketplace. In order to design a culturally relevant center, he interviewed local

artists on their perspectives regarding the proposed center. Adrienne Borders, Ph.D. in clinical psychology, is investigating how client language could be related to behavioral change in Alcohol Behavioral Couple Therapy. She said she hopes her research will help further develop more targeted treatment techniques for substance use disorders. Graduate education and research are entirely interconnected as graduate students generate knowledge rather than just translating it, said Mike Dougher, UNM vice provost for research. Few other activities have such a positive effect on the community or the state. For every one

dollar spent on research, the state of New Mexico generates seven dollars, Dougher stated. “People with more education usually have a more meaningful life and a greater sense of accomplishment that they have done something special. There’s a greater sense of satisfaction that you’re living a life you really enjoy,” Gamble said. “I hope for those reasons and many more we continue supporting advanced education.” Marielle Dent is a freelance reporter for the Daily Lobo.

Capital punishment means unlimited Gov. By Thomas L. Knapp

As January drew to a close, the perennial issue of capital punishment once again elbowed its way onto America’s front pages. We’ve already seen executions in Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma and Texas this year, but recent developments cast doubt on the future of the death penalty in the United States. That’s good news. On January 28 the United States Supreme Court stayed three executions pending legal challenges over the drug cocktail Oklahoma uses to kill its prisoners. Two days later, Ohio postponed all seven executions it had previously scheduled for 2015: its anonymous

hired killers need time to find anonymous suppliers of the drugs used in the state’s new, “improved” death protocol. But delays and deliberations aren’t enough. It’s time for libertarians and “limited government” conservatives to join hands with more traditional capital punishment opponents and bring an end to the practice of slaughtering caged prisoners in cold blood. And that’s exactly what the practice amounts to. State executions are not performed in defense of self or of others, they are calculated vengeance killings carried out on disarmed and defenseless victims, distinguishable from murder only by virtue of representing government policy. Capital punishment is incompatible with

“limited government” in any meaningful sense of the word. If the state may kill its subjects — not in the heat of the moment when life and death decisions must be made instantly, nor in actual defense of life, liberty or property, but merely in leisurely pursuit of revenge and “deterrence” — what may the state NOT do to those subjects? How can we plausibly dispute lesser state impositions like gun control schemes or the “individual mandate” requiring us to buy health insurance, having already cheerfully ceded power over life and death to the same authorities? Too often we let death penalty supporters use sleight of rhetoric to focus our attention resolutely on the prisoner’s proven guilt, on

the evil of a prisoner’s crimes, or on the suffering of his or her victims. Yes, those things are important and deserving of our full consideration, but we shouldn’t allow them to distract us from, or absolve us of, our own responsibility for the things we allow the state to do in our names and on our behalf. It’s too late to make 2015 an executionfree year. But we have 11 months left in which to bring down the final curtain on a shameful and barbaric American tradition. Thomas L. Knapp is director and senior news analyst for the William Lloyd Garrison Center for Libertarian Advocacy Journalism ( He lives in and works from north central Florida.

The entertainment industry enabled Cosby By Tina Dupuy

Hollywood is rumored to be a liberal bastion. Why exactly? Because a couple of actors raised some money for Obama? Hollywood as a business is far from liberal. Its core value isn’t progress; its core value is profit. If “Fifty Shades of Grey” can make money, it’s produced; if “The Passion of the Christ” can make money, it’s produced. Hollywood’s only bottom line is the bottom line. So if the most powerful man in town is a libertine predator, but he’s making people money, he has immunity. Yes, I’m speaking of America’s father figure, sitcom icon Bill Cosby. As of this writing, more than 30 women have come out publicly to say that Cosby sexually assaulted them over the course of four decades. But because we love Cosby, the kneejerk reaction is to cast doubt on these women: “Who are they?” “Why’d they wait so long to come forward?” “What are their motives?” “I don’t know why it’s so hard to believe

women,” said Jay Leno during an interview at an industry conference last week. “You go to Saudi Arabia, you need two women to testify against a man. Here you need 25.” Because in the world of television, the formula is set: Bad guys lose, good guys win. Bad guys are bad, good guys are those we identify with — their struggles, their charm, their perseverance. To Americans, Cosby was the quintessential television good guy. I didn’t have a father growing up. The father I created was an amalgam of advertising images and Dr. Huxtable. So it’s understandable for fans to reflexively want to protect Cosby by casting doubt on his accusers. We aren’t used to seeing monsters who don’t look like monsters. Cosby is a complicated villain who made an entire industry complicit in his sex crimes. It’s now clear that Bill Cosby, the man, is more fit for a Shakespearean drama than a half-hour situation comedy. If you talk to people in the Cosby-sphere (which I have), his assaulting women has been an open secret for a very long time. So

forgive me for not calling him an alleged rapist. He’s an enabled rapist. One victim is a crime; more than 30 is a criminal enterprise. And just like in the mob, if you’re an earner, you’re protected. The moment Cosby was no longer bankable, the allegations suddenly stuck. I commend those responsible for canceling Cosby’s new projects after more than a dozen women came forward. A Cosby crony, former NBC employee Frank Scotti, told the Daily News he paid off women for the comedian in the 1980s. Besides Scotti, there are plenty of others who knew this was going on and did nothing: Those who, at best, looked the other way and, at worst, supplied the family-friendly fraud with young girls. As a television-viewing public, once we get past not believing three-dozen women and finally admit Cosby is a serial rapist, the next phase is even more uncomfortable. It’s realizing there’s an industry we love and admire that fostered, promoted and profited off a Cosby. Who was going to

stop the gravy train just because a couple of models got hurt? Apparently no one. In an industry that loves to navel gaze, it’s time for some serious self-reflection. Imagine being brutally assaulted by a beloved entertainer who was free to continue the practice as he wanted. These women were rape victims first and victims of a conspiracy against rape victims next. Whether Cosby will be charged with a crime has yet to be seen, but regardless of the legal system, it’s the Hollywood machine that should be held in contempt: An industry with no regard for young women, treating them as a disposable commodity to be fed to a star. That’s the buried lead in the Cosby saga: As a predator, he thrived and blossomed in a business where the only crime, it appears, is not being profitable.

Santa Rosa seeks to retain youths

Students concerned that city doesn’t offer futures for young population By M.E. Sprengelmeyer

SANTA ROSA — If you want to know what’s motivating the local drive for new economic development strategies, just ask for a show of hands. It happened recently in a crowded auditorium at Santa Rosa High School, where consultants asked teenage students how many of them plan to go away for college or jobs but eventually return to live in their home town. “Very few raised their hands,” said outspoken frosh Dominica Chavez, 14, who admitted she didn’t raise her hand either. Chavez said she plans to leave to pursue a degree in law, with hopes of working as an attorney in a major firm. For now, those types of opportunities are mostly in the big city, so Chavez said she might not return to Santa Rosa until she’s age 50, when she just might run for mayor. By not raising their hands, many Santa Rosa students were sending a silent but powerful message. “In my opinion … they don’t believe there’s going to be a job or a place for them here,” Chavez explained. Teens will be teens, and so consultant James Glover of the Santa Fe-based Idea Group suggested that he might get a similar response from young people in New York City given the same question Still, he said, creating more opportunities for young people to return to the area is one of the motivations behind the Guadalupe Collaborative Partnership and its special outreach to students. “It was encouraging to see a good amount of kids who wanted to return. The question is: What do they return to? Is there appropriate employment for them?” he said. “That’s what this is all about.” The January session at Santa Rosa High School focused on recreation, seeking ways to improve the everyday quality for life as a building block toward attracting and retaining better-paying jobs. Students weren’t shy about offering opinions. Some said they want to revitalize a downtown movie theater or draw a retrostyle drive-in to appeal to Route 66 visitors. Teacher Adam Sanchez, who helped organize the campus brainstorming session, said students spoke about the need for maintenance and improvements at Park Lake, and some said they want an indoor pool for yearround swimming. Others said Santa Rosa needs a true community center: not just an open gym, but a perhaps a facility

with pool tables, a game hall and a place for young people to hang out. Currently, recreation in Santa Rosa is synonymous with lakes and youth sports leagues. But Sanchez said some students are looking for “non-athletic” options for pastimes, such as through a recreation center. “There was the idea that we need to create right-brained activities, creative activities for the kids that aren’t just sports-oriented,” Glover explained. During a lunch break at Santa Rosa High School on Monday, some of the students were putting forward novel ideas, such as attracting a trampoline-focused “gravity park,” laser tag and paint ball facilities, or even a go-kart track. Even so, future mayoral hopeful Chavez said recreation is just a start, and that young people really hope to see better job opportunities so more of them can consider returning. “If the people who grow up here don’t want to come back, something’s wrong,” she said. Tim Dodge, who leads Santa Rosa’s city administration, said it’s all part of a comprehensive approach, working on issues like housing, quality of life, energy and recreation in order to set the stage for job growth. “The young people are the future of the county,” Dodge said. “We need to start engaging them, get youth to take ownership, to get involved and see if they can make a difference in their community.” Glover said he’s compiling the students’ suggestions, along with input from the countywide town hall sessions, into lists of actionable items, ranked by priority and feasibility. A recent session on workforce development issues was postponed by weather, to be rescheduled. Another, which will delve into energy issues, is set for 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 9, at the Blue Hole Dive and Conference Center. At the home of the “Mighty Lions,” “They were very engaged, and I believe it was the superintendent (Richard Perea) who said, ‘Kids, it’s up to you to help determine what the future of Santa Rosa is going to be,’” Glover said. “And I think the kids get that.” In Glover’s view, Guadalupe County is going through some of the same economic struggles facing rural areas throughout New Mexico, but it’s encouraging that the partnership of the county government, municipalities and schools is seeking input toward a comprehensive turnaround effort. “I think it’s very progressive, forward-thinking,” he said. “Let’s get the input from everybody and make this happen.”

Midfielder departs for the professional leagues McKendry leaves UNM early for a two-year contract signed last week By Isabel Gonzalez

Next year junior midfielder Ben McKendry will be a “different ball of wax,” as they say in Canada. Last week McKendry signed a Homegrown Player contract with the Vancouver Whitecaps, and will thus forgo his senior season with the UNM men’s soccer team to join the MLS. According to MLS rules, a club may sign a player to his first professional contract without subjecting him to the SuperDraft if the player has trained for one year in the club’s youth development program and has trained 80 days with the academy. McKendry fits within the HGP Rule after he joined the Whitecaps FC youth set-up in 2007 and spent five years in their Residency Program, including the 2012 U.S. Soccer Development Academy Championship final. UNM head coach Jeremy Fishbein said that although the Lobos will miss McKendry next season, Fishbein is excited for him. “He got offered a great contract with a two-year guarantee,” Fishbein said. “For a professional athlete it’s hard to even get a oneyear guarantee. It’s extremely hard to pass on an opportunity like that.” During his career as a Lobo McKendry was named First-Team All-Conference USA as a sophomore. As a junior McKendry received Second-Team All-American honors and led UNM to the College Cup Final Four in 2013. In a statement, Whitecaps head coach Carl Robinson described McKendry as a “talented young central midfielder who has earned this opportunity.” He credited both McKendry and the UNM coaching staff. “We’re thrilled to add another local talent who has not only come

through our Residency program, but who calls Vancouver home,” Robison said. McKendry said he grew up watching the Whitecaps and was “extremely excited” when he was offered an opportunity to join the team. But he also had mixed feelings about leaving New Mexico. “I am extremely thankful for my time in New Mexico,” he said. “I was so fortunate to be surrounded by great teammates and coaches. Albuquerque will always be a special place to me.” McKendry began preseason workouts last week and today he will travel with the Whitecaps to Tucson, Arizona for training and preseason friendlies. “You just have to be patient,” he said. “You have to remember how lucky you are to be a professional athlete.” So far, four Lobos, including McKendry, from this past season are taking part in this year’s MLS preseason. Oniel Fisher was drafted by the Seattle Sounders, James Rogers was taken by Sporting Kansas City, and last week Nick Miele received an invitation from the Chicago Fire to take part in preseason camp. Riley McGovern has potential to become another Lobo to join the professional ranks. He is currently taking part in the LA Galaxy II open tryouts. More than 200 players attended, but only two will be selected. “I think I’ve played well so far. In a couple weeks I will be trying out in Oklahoma City,” McGovern said. “I’m just trying to do as many tryouts as possible to get my name out there.” Isabel Gonzalez is a sports reporter for the Daily Lobo.

School records fall in highly competitive meet By Liam Cary-Eaves

Big-name schools brought strong performances to New Mexico with record-breaking efforts in Saturday’s New Mexico Collegiate Invitational at the Albuquerque Convention Center. Ridge Jones now shares a piece of the 60-meter dash record while Sammy Silva and Holly Van Grinsven sit atop the New Mexico record books for their performances in the 800-meter race and 60-meter hurdles, respectively. The rigorous competition featured three nationally ranked teams: No. 11 Alabama men’s track team, No. 12 Kansas State women, and No. 21 UCLA women’s team. UNM’s women finished second on the day while the men were fourth. UNM head coach Joe Franklin said he was encouraged to see such high-level performances from the teams that came to Albuquerque because the meet is generally seen as low-key. “It was just an awesome meet,” Franklin said. “The quality is so high, you just have no choice but to compete at a high level.” Based on UNM’s individual performances, the high level of competitiveness was certainly reached. Van Grinsven was the first Lobo to rewrite the New Mexico history books with an altitudeconverted time of 8.37, breaking the previous 60-meter Lobo hurdle mark of 8.43 set by Precious Selmon. “I’ve been here for three years and I haven’t even gotten close to a school record,” Van Grinsven said. “It’s always been there in the back of my mind. Just to be able to do it here on this track, it’s just incredible.”

Van Grinsven, a junior from Tennessee, said chasing the school record has only made her even faster. Her record-breaking hurdle time among all-time New Mexico runners was only third best among the athletes in the Convention Center. “It makes you really hungry,” Van Grinsven said. “You’re never satisfied because you know there’s more in the tank to give.” Later in the afternoon, Jones went flying through the infield to finish in a tie for fourth, but the junior out of Texas also tied a UNM best. Jones’ time of 6.69 tied Beejay Lee for the quickest 60-meter time. “I can’t just stay here and be satisfied with that time. There’s people out there with faster times,” Jones said. “It gives me more time to progress. It gives me more time to train so I can get to nationals.” The final record-breaker of the day was in a tight race that came down to the wire. Silva and Sophie Connor both beat out Josephine Moultrie’s 2012 time of 2:08.55. In fact, Connor had been leading Silva the majority of the 800 meters. However, a late surge by Silva and an unfortunate fall at the end of the race contributed to Connor’s second-place finish in the race and in school history. Silva finished in 2:08.14 while Connor lay across the finish line with a final time of 2:08.20. It appeared that Connor had trouble with her spike on the very last step of the 800 meter race. “They’re both very fit. They’re good teammates. They’re great friends,” Franklin said. “But when they step on the line, they want to win the race.”

Di Linh Hoang / Daily Lobo / @linh_linherz

New Mexico sprinter Ridge Jones competes at the New Mexico Collegiate Invitational at the Albuquerque Convention Center on Saturday. New Mexico had record-breaking efforts at the invitational including Jones, who tied the record for the 60-meter dash.

Franklin said he knows that Connor’s knees are sore from the fall, but he thinks the junior is going to be just fine. Silva, on the other hand, had the luxury to walk around and catch her breath following the intense photo finish, before helping a sprawled Connor off the track. Adam Bitchell’s 3,000-meter time of 8:11.64 gives him the fourth overall time in UNM history. Calli Thackery made an impression on the women’s side of the 3,000 meters with her time of 9:33.80, third all-time on the Lobo charts.

Zoe Howell also made some noise with her personal best time of 1:33.23 in the 600 meters, third best in school history. “It was just an awesome meet for kids to come out and break school records and PRs (personal records),” Franklin said. UCLA left Albuquerque with team wins from both the men (74) and women (93). The UNM women’s team concluded its day with 91.50 points while the men finished with 60. Looking ahead, Franklin said he doesn’t think this is anywhere close

to what his squad can do. He said the Lobos will need to build off of the competition they saw today and for the conference championships that will be held later this year at the Albuquerque Convention Center. “I think we could have a really great crowd for the conference championship,” Franklin said. “And then I think we can win another one.” Liam Cary-Eaves is the assistant sports editor for the Daily Lobo.

UNM moves up in standings after close win Staff Report

New Mexico continued its pursuit of an upper-tier position in the Mountain West rankings with a tight 64-62 victory against San Jose State. With one second left to play on the game clock, the Spartans (9-11, 3-6 in the Mountain West) had a chance to send things into overtime with SJSU’s best free throw shooter, guard Ta’Rea Cunnigan, at the line. Cunnigan is shooting a respectable 73 percent from the charity stripe on the season, but after missing the first free throw, she botched the second attempt to give her team a chance to send it to overtime. UNM snatched the board and sealed the game. “People don’t understand how good San Jose State is and how good they are at home,” Lobo head coach Yvonne Sanchez said in a release. “They have very good players.” Cunnigan made her presence felt with a 23-point performance

against the Lobos (10-10, 6-3 MW), but couldn’t manage the game’s final free throws. “It was a fun, fun game to be a part of — now (that it’s over),” Sanchez said. “If you lead by 20 against San Jose State, that’s not enough. They can score in bunches. It was a tough, tough game.” New Mexico’s redshirt senior guard Antiesha Brown put up a sound showing of her own, nearing a double-double with the team-high 17 points and nine rebounds. Junior forward Khadijah Shumpert put together one of the game’s top performances as well, with 16 points and eight rebounds. Just like the Lobos’ previous game against Wyoming on Jan. 24, Sanchez turned to her leaders in the locker room to overcome a halftime deficit. “That’s what leaders do when they step up,” Sanchez said. “You challenge your seniors at halftime, and I did that.”

Sanchez said she wants the team to separate itself from the logjam of the conference. With a close win against the Spartans, she feels the Lobos are doing just that. “We are starting to emerge,” Sanchez said. “But nothing is a gimme in this conference. We were fortunate to come out of here with a win.” UNM now resides alone in the third-place spot in the close Mountain West race. The Lobos sit just one game behind the CSU Rams (15-5, 7-2 MW). However, the team will need significant help from other schools down the stretch to take the title away from Fresno State (17-3, 9-0 MW). Due to the Lobos’ strong conference record, they now sit at .500 for the first time all season. The feat comes at the halfway mark of conference play.

Lackluster Lobos steamroll San Jose State By Kyle Tomasi Head coach Craig Neal was anything but pleased in spite of New Mexico’s 67-41 blowout over San Jose State on Saturday night. He said his team is supposed to be getting better on a daily basis, but he didn’t feel they accomplished that in Saturday’s 26-point romp at WisePies Arena. “I thought that was a very average performance from my team,” Neal said. “I thought they came out in the first four minutes and played really good, (but) we still had a lot of mental breakdowns offensively. We still had a lot of mental breakdowns defensively — I’m a little concerned about that. You can’t play to your opponent.” The Lobos got off to a scorching start and were leading 12-0 at the first media timeout. The Spartans didn’t score their first basket until the 14:50 mark in the first half. UNM (14-7, 6-4 Mountain West) took a comfortable 31-15 lead into halftime following a 3-point buzzer beater by SJSU forward Brandon Mitchell that cut the deficit to 16 points. In the first half the Lobos held the Spartans to just 21.4 percent (628 FG) from the floor and 18.8 percent (3-16 3FG) from the 3-point line. The 15 points and 21.4 percent shooting were both season lows for the Lobo defense. The second half featured flaring tempers due to some questionably hard fouls from SJSU players on some wide-open Lobo looks. SJSU center Ryan Singer fouled junior forward Jordan Goodman on a layup and proceeded to angrily confront other Lobo players. Senior guard Hugh Greenwood stood up for his teammates and had a few choice words of his own, which also warranted a technical. “It did get chippy. We would have had probably 10 more assists if they didn’t foul us going to the rim,” Greenwood said. “Credit to them for not giving up and playing hard for 40. We had some wide-open layups and they fouled us for sure. “I got a tech for just sticking up for my teammates,” he continued. “I thought it was over with, and (Singer) came back for more. I just told him to have a look up at the scoreboard, and obviously that classified as taunting and I got a tech.” UNM shot 46.2 percent (24-52 FG) in the game and 41.2 percent (7-17 3FG) from 3-point range. They did, however, struggle from the free throw line, connecting on 54.5 percent (1222 FT). This performance came off the heels of a 10-10 free throw shooting game against Wyoming on Jan. 24. With such a large lead for most of the game, the Lobos seemed to lose focus, their offense growing stagnant throughout stretches of the second half. “It shouldn’t be hard at all (to lose focus), not when we’ve given games away and not been really productive in certain games,” Neal said. “I just told them this game is about getting better and I thought it was an average performance … There shouldn’t be any reason not to stay focused.” Only two Lobos notched doubledigit scoring nights. Senior guard Deshawn Delaney led them with 15 points, while freshman guard Sam Logwood chipped in 10 points of his own. SJSU (2-19, 0-9 MW) had two double-digit scorers with Rashad Muhammad (15 points) and Jaleel Williams (14 points). Kyle Tomasi is a sports reporter for the Daily Lobo.
