Snowstorm causes 52 car incidents One to two more inches expected by Wednesday by erin fitzwilliams associate city editor

911 dispatchers said snowstorms caused 52 car incidents in Morgantown over the weekend. Seven of the reports were accidents with injuries, and 29 were reports of accidents with

no injuries, said dispatchers at the Monongalia Emergency Centralized Communications Agency. Sixteen were motor assistance calls, which, according to MECCA, included vehicles getting stuck and other car problems caused by the snow. Five to six inches of snow fell in Morgantown Thursday night into Friday, said Alicia Smith, meteorologist for the National Weather Service for Pittsburgh. NWS issued a special weather advisory Saturday because the wind chill dropped temperatures to subzero.

Mo n o n g a l i a County Schools canceled school early Thursday night in anticipation of Friday’s snowstorm. West Virginia University remained open Friday, but some students had a difficult time getting to class. Jonathan Nelson, sophomore broadcast journalism major, said he had to drive 10 mph for his commute to class at 9:30 a.m., Friday. “I watched a driver fly by me and spin out of control into the oncoming traffic lanes,” he said. “Luckily there wasn’t any traffic

around, but it was intense.” Amanda Welsh, freshman business major, said the sidewalks outside the Life Sciences Building were not shoveled by her the time of her 8:30 a.m. class. “I wish WVU would have had at least a morning delay to get the sidewalks clear,” she said. Sandra Buckler, sophomore engineering major, said she could not get back to her house Friday. “The steps were too slippery

Students pushed IT’S PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME to finish FAFSA application early BY SARAH o’ROURKE STAFF WRITER

Members of the West Virginia University Financial Aid Office are encouraging students to prepare to file the 2011-12 FAFSA. Steve Riffon, assistant director of Financial Aid, said students should submit their FAFSA on or before the priority deadline of March 1. The West Virginia state deadline is April 15, 2011. “It’s better for students to prepare for next year than procrastinate,” Riffon said. “The earlier students apply, the earlier they know their financial aid for next year.” The FAFSA can be completed online or students can pick up hard copies in the Financial Aid Office. Students need their family’s 2010 income tax return forms and their own, if they have one, to fill out the information requested on the FAFSA, he said. Riffon said the Financial Aid Office focuses on giving financial aid statements to the incoming out-of-state freshmen first and then to incoming in-state freshmen. Upperclass students follow. Students fill out the FAFSA,

and the Financial Aid Office takes care of the rest, he said. “Students have to be proactive,” he said. “If they do their part, it is easier for us to do ours.” Beginning Feb. 7, the Financial Aid Office is hosting a Financial Aid Awareness Week through Feb. 11, said Paula King, senior financial aid counselor. Financial Aid representatives will be at a booth in the Mountainlair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. all week answering students’ questions regarding the financial aid process, she said. The Financial Aid Office is also hosting College Goal Feb. 13 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Mountainlair Rhododendron Room. Financial Aid representatives will assist students and parents who need help filing the FAFSA, King said. Filing the FAFSA is free, she said, if students visit FAFSA. gov. Students should also respond immediately if they receive a letter regarding their financial aid statement. Anyone with questions or issues regarding the FAFSA or financial aid can speak to a representative in the Financial Aid Office in the Mountainlair.


Students at West Virginia University have the opportunity to attend the Big East Career Fair in Madison Square Garden March 11. The fair, held in New York City, is an opportunity for students to meet with employers in all fields from across the country. “To have a chance to go to NYC and appear in person to employers is a big advantage for students,” said Dave Durham, director of WVU Career Services. “The fair is an opportunity to network with employers (who) will not necessarily recruit on our campus, and students can expect to find a wide array of companies.” The fair will accommodate 16 Big East schools and is open for current students and WVU alumni. Students are given the option to partake in a transportation and accommodation package hosted by Career Services, said Sarah Rotruck, assistant director of WVU Career Services.

“Students are welcome to travel to the Career Fair on their own,” Rotruck said. “The Career Fair itself is free, but we have a pretty great deal that includes a bus ride there and back, and hotel accommodations for two nights for $150.” The trip’s agenda includes leaving for New York City March 10 and returning on March 12. The Career Fair itself is to be held March 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students who going on the trip are required to attend the Career Fair at some point on Friday, Rotruck said. “Our students always bring their A-game, and we tend to hear employers are looking for the flying WV logo stickers we hand out to students before the fair,” Durham said. Durham said out of the 16 Big East schools, WVU has gotten its students mentioned by name for the past three years. Rotruck said students can go to to register. Students interested in

New group encourages students to volunteer by connecting online BY NICK ASHLEY STAFF WRITER


Registration begins for transportation, housing at Big East Career Fair BY GINA DAMATO

Volunteers help make lunch for the Ronald McDonald House on Sunday as part of the Viral Volunteers program.

Members of the Viral Volunteers, a new Morgantown organization developed online and designed to get students involved in the community, took time Sunday to help the Ronald McDonald House Charities prepare lunch. The group prepared peanut butter and jelly several deli meats sandwiches, and it served chicken soup and salad. “The (charity) House has been doing great things for years for people who deserve and need help,” said Butch Campione, volunteer for the group. “This is the first event that the group has organized in the community, and we feel privileged to have the opportunity to give back in any way.”

Viral Volunteers formed earlier this month when its founders were brainstorming ways to get more students volunteering in Morgantown. “The idea for the group began with a cartoon profile picture posted on Facebook to stop child abuse,” said Neece Campione, co-director of the group. “Our organization wanted to start a website where people could do good deeds for others, post comments about their experiences ... and give their time to help out the community.” Viral Volunteers is looking for anyone interested in joining the group and participating in its activities. “Today is my first time working with the group,” said Aaron

WVU accepting names for social justice award BY JOEL MORAES CORRESPONDENT

Jennifer McIntosh, West Virginia University’s executive officer for Social Justice, said announcing the winner of the Neil S. Bucklew Award is her favorite call to make every year. “To say to somebody ‘congratulations, you are the winner’ is priceless because it is a very prestigious award,” McIntosh said. The President’s Office for Social Justice, in conjunction with the Social Justice Council, is

accepting nominations for the award which recognizes those who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, courage and support on a continuous basis in the area of social justice, according to a press release. “We are looking for people who have been strong advocates above and beyond what’s expected in their normal work life,” McIntosh said. Richard Fleisher, an extension specialist and associate professor for global education, won the award in 2010. “I see my social justice work

Fleisher teaches graduate classes for teachers on increasing capacity to work with Hispanic and low-income students and families. “One of the good problems that we’ve had is the quality of the nominees,” McIntosh said. “We’ve had people who go across the spectrum, but all have a commitment of helping to foster an environment of respect and of valuing all people.”

The award began in 1990, when Fanklin D. Cleckley of the College of Law won it. It’s named after former WVU president and current professor at the College of Business and Economics Neil S. Bucklew. This award recognizes the accomplishments of Bucklew, whose leadership and vision led to the establishment of the President’s Office for Social Justice.

Packers, Steelers in Super Bowl XLV Packers beats Bears 21-14 for NFC title Steelers beat Jets 24-19 for AFC title

CHICAGO (AP) — Green Bay nose tackle B.J.

the game, so we knew eventually we’d get our shot. ... How fitting is it to be a Green Bay Packer and win the championship with defense? That sums it up right there.” The Bears got the ball back again, and Hanie tried to lead them to their third TD of the final quarter after taking over for the injured Jay Cutler and ineffective backup Todd Collins. But Shields cut off the last drive with his second INT, this one at the Packers 12 to wrap up the victory. Earlier, Shields, an undrafted rookie, had knocked the ball out of Cutler’s hand on a blitz – the Bears recovered – and also made a nice interception at the end of the half to keep the Packers up by two touchdowns. “They’re always teaching us to stay on top and that’s what I did and got my head around,” said Shields. “Go to the highest point. Once before I was a receiver and that’s what we were taught – go to the highest point and grab the ball.” And now the Packers are one win away from going to the highest point in the NFL. Aaron Rodgers has been the major factor, but so has a defense under coordinator Dom Capers that mixed it up Sunday. The Packers made a miserable day for Chicago starter Jay Cutler, who left in the third quarter with a knee injury and completed only 6 of 14 passes for 80 yards.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers found a fitting way to shut down the New York Jets’ season. What started with “Hard Knocks,” ended with hard knocks, too. For the third time in six seasons, Terrible Towels will twirl at the Super Bowl. The Steelers silenced Rex Ryan’s wild bunch with a fumble return for a touchdown and a goal-line stand in a 24-19 victory for the AFC championship Sunday. They will face Green Bay in Dallas in two weeks. Look out Big D, here comes another Big D – in black and gold, and with an unmatched history of carrying off the Lombardi Trophy. You can bet that unit led by James Harrison, which shut down the Jets’ comeback in the fourth quarter, will test Aaron Rodgers. That overwhelming defense set the tone for most of a frigid night at Heinz Field to end the Jets’ stunning postseason run. Ryan slammed down his headset when Antonio Brown, also a hero last week, caught a pass for a first down that allowed Pittsburgh to hang on and run out the clock. And the Steelers (14-4) will challenge the Packers’ defense with a versatile attack led by running back Rashard Mendenhall and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

The Steelers ended the Jets’ season with a dominant first half for a 24-3 edge. Mendenhall had 95 of his 121 yards and a touchdown. Roethlisberger has moved on from a four-game suspension at the beginning of the season to take Pittsburgh to its eighth Super Bowl; the Steelers own the most titles, six. He scrambled time and again for key gains, often against shoddy tackling. At game’s end, he kneeled on the field, his face buried in an AFC championship T-shirt. The cocky Jets seemed to have left everything they had in New England last Sunday. There was little trash talking all week and even less fire early in their biggest game since winning the championship 42 years ago. They haven’t been back to the Super Bowl. The Steelers are regulars, including titles for the 2005 and 2008 teams, both led by Roethlisberger and a fierce defense sparked by playmaking safety Troy Polamalu. Polamalu, his hair pouring from under his helmet as the black-and-gold signature towels flowed throughout Heinz Field, didn’t have to do a whole lot this time. Not with the way his teammates whipped the Jets at the line of scrimmage before a spirited New York surge in the second half.


Lawmakers eye firmer hold of session, budget



since I’ve been in the Legislature, we’ve given too much deference to the governor, whomever the governor might have been, in terms of passing legislation,” said Delegate John Doyle. “It’s almost a psychological thing.” The 11-term Jefferson County Democrat cited as an example the desire of governors to reconfigure the executive branch. While Doyle did not cite this as an example, Tomblin has proposed converting the Division of Veterans’ Affairs into the cabinet-level Department of Veteran’s Assistance. The agency chief-turned-secretary position would get a $30,000 raise, for a $95,000 annual salary. “We tend to say, ‘Oh, OK, let’s reorganize state government.’ I think that’s nonsense,” Doyle said. “That is an area the Legislature should oversee.” House Minority Leader Tim Armstead also questioned whether a governor’s agenda should become a priority of any

given regular session. As had Doyle, Armstead said he was not singling out Tomblin. “It is merely, in effect, a suggestion to the Legislature of bills that he thinks are important,” said Armstead, R-Kanawha. “I think a bill that’s introduced by any member of this Legislature, if it’s a good idea, should have the same attention and the same emphasis as any bill suggested by the governor.” Lawmakers have also discussed ways this session to step up their oversight of the state budget. Crafting a spending plan for the upcoming budget year is a key task of the Legislature. But lawmakers work from a proposal provided by the governor as required by the constitution, which also calls on the governor to supply a revenue estimate. The Senate Government Organization Committee last week examined the possible benefits of creating an independent fiscal analysis office within the legis-

lative branch. Among other duties, these staffers would help assess proposed budgets, compile the Legislature’s own revenue and spending forecasts, and estimate the price tags of specific legislation. Paul Miller, with the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy, touted the benefits of such an office at the meeting. He compared it to the Congressional Budget Office’s role as a counterpoint to the White House’s Office of Management and Budget. “The state legislature could likewise benefit from independent tax, fiscal and policy analysis,” Miller said in prepared remarks to the committee. Miller said 40 other states have such an office, with neighboring Pennsylvania recently creating one. The other border states have at least one such office, Miller said. Maryland and Virginia are among 10 states with more than one.

Record label ‘labor of love’ for W.Va. artist HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Some teenagers are content to learn three chords on a guitar and start a rock band. Matthew Jenkins, founder of Huntington’s Future Destination Records, dug a little deeper. Jenkins, 28, got his start in the music business at 14 when he began an Internet-based record label. His parents weren’t musical. They didn’t even listen to much music. But Jenkins says he discovered “how much comfort and escape it can be” around age 12. He didn’t play

any instruments at the time, but wanted some way to get involved with the music world. He started selling CDs online, releasing compilations of songs and whole albums. The venture ended after a couple of years when Jenkins took up the bass guitar. “I thought, ‘Man, playing music is a lot better than selling other people’s,’” he said. By his freshman year at Marshall University in 2001, he decided he could do both. “I’d started to play music, and I wanted to release some

of my own music. I never had any intentions of starting a real record label,” he said. He picked out his label’s name the same night he decided to jump back into the record business. Jenkins said he was reading the Bible and the “future glory” promised in Romans 8:18 stuck out. “That verse really spoke to me. I just decided to change ‘glory’ with ‘destination,’” he said. Jenkins said 90 percent of the label’s bands are Christian, but he pushes the music to-

ward a general audience. The groups might play at a bar one night, a church the next and an all-ages venue the next. “I think if you’re a Christian and if you’re creating art, your faith will come through in the art whether you have that set agenda or not,” he said. Future Destination Records released Neutral Agreement’s first CD, “Bet You Never Thought,” in March 2002. Soon, other artists came calling. When members of the band Farewell to Fashion asked Jenkins to put out their next record, he immediately agreed. And he hadn’t even heard the album yet. “I assumed it would be good,” he said. “All the members had been in another band that I was actually a big fan of. I was slightly starstruck when they picked up a sticker at a show and got my contact info.” That group has since disbanded, but Jenkins has no problem filling his roster. Future Destination Records usually works with five or six artists at any given time. “It’s just me, and that’s about all I can handle and give the proper attention to,” Jenkins said. “That’s almost too many for me.” Though the record label is based in Huntington, Jenkins’ band, The Apprentice, and his “hobby band,” Party or Die, are the label’s only West Virginiabased acts. Other artists hail from Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee and North Carolina. “It’s mostly people I’ve come in contact with through playing shows and making connections,” he said. Jenkins also receives pitches from musicians asking him to sign their band.

Korn headlines ‘Music as a Weapon’ tour by mackenzie mays associate a&e editor

Hard rock bands Korn, Disturbed, Sevendust and In This Moment will perform at the West Virginia University Coliseum on Wednesday, as part of the 2011 Music as a Weapon tour. Korn, a controversial metal band has been on the scene since the mid-’90s, stole audiences attention with daring lyrical content and a one-of-a-kind genre. The group was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance for 2000 hit “Freak on a Leash” and later snagged the award in 2003 for “Here to Stay.” The “Freak on a Leash” music video also won Best Rock Video at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. Now, after almost two decades of shocking audiences and challenging mainstream radio with nine successful albums, Korn continues to deliver – though their genre is still too unique to be defined.

“We’re just the style of Korn, and it’s very different. There’s no such thing as nu metal or any other classification for us,” said drummer Ray Luzier, who joined the band in 2009, after having worked on projects with David Lee Roth and Stone Temple Pilots. “No one sings like Johnson on this planet. We can go from a kids-like theme to a heavy growl, then throw in the low tuning of seven-string guitars and the funkiness of the rhythm section,” Luzier added. “Mix it all together and you get us. You can’t sound exactly like us, and I’m proud to be a part of that.” Luzier said when performing live, the band likes to think as music lovers first, not performers, in order to give the most energetic show possible. “When I’m watching us, I think ‘What would I want to see up there?,’” Luzier said. “We’re still music fans ourselves, so that’s how we play – from the heart with passion, and basically, whatever we feel come up goes. We know we’ve done our job if

The group performs at West Virginia University Wednesday as part of the ‘Music as a Weapon Tour.’ everyone leaves exhausted.” Korn’s eccentric sound and look isn’t the only thing that makes them different from the rest. According to Luzier, their fans are in a league of their own. “There are no fans like Korn fans. They’re lifers. They’re in it,” Luzier said. “These people come to our shows to get away, and those who are going through

hard times come up to us and let us know we’ve been a good release for them.” Luzier said audiences will be surprised by Wednesday’s live performance and said the tour works as the perfect package for metal fans. “The band is such a catalog after 18 years, but people will still be surprised by the set list,” Luz-

ier said. “It’s quite a fun package. I think if you’re a heavy fan, then you’ll be satisfied with the bands.” The concert begins Wednesday at 7 p.m. Ticket prices range from $41 to $47 depending on seating. WVU students receive $10 discount with a valid Mountaineer Card at the campus box offices, Ticketmaster and by call-

ing 304-293-SHOW. “I’ve always been a fan of Korn and absolutely admired their work,” Luzier said. “You don’t just join a band like Korn. It’s something you’ve got to get inside, and to get to be a part of something of that magnitude is just a whole other level.”

Local vendors, chefs and brewers highlight Food and Wine Festival by ashlie walter A&E writer

Despite cold temperatures and icy roads, Morgantown residents had the chance to wine and dine local produce at the 27th Annual Food and Wine Festival. The event was held at the Lakeview Golf Resort & Spa this weekend, with many residents receiving advice from executive chefs and learning new recipes. Brian Yarborough, food and beverage director at Lakeview began Friday’s group of seminars with fusion tapas cuisine. Audience members watched as Yarborough showed how to create sesame-seared ahi tuna & Napa

cabbage on a crispy wonton. Audience members were also given the opportunity to ask questions of the chefs – ranging from the best kind of cutting boards to the ideal knife choice. The best? Carbon knives, Yarborough said. “Carbon knives are best for their edge,” he said. “Stainless steel knives will last forever but they don’t have a clean edge.” After Yarborough, Executive Chef Ahmed Saloui took the stage to introduce appetizers and hor d’oeuvres, including his recipe for oysters au gratin. The Morgantown Brewing Company also held a seminar named “The Art of Craft Beers.” Head brewer Brian

Anderson lead the seminar with suggesting MBC’s own beers instead of some suggested favorites. Yarborough said he did not intend to be a chef in his younger years. He originally went to college to work at golf courses and then traveled around the region learning to be a chef and was then asked to work at Lakeview which blended his two fields of interest. “My advice to students (wanting to go into culinary arts) is to get as much experience as possible,” Yarborough said. Another chef with a different background is Maria Daniele of Franco’s Lounge in Williamsport, Pa. Daniele began her cooking career at

her community drug store with her two older sisters. “My father was a barber and bought a local bar, and I became the cook,” Daniele said. Franco’s is now owned by Maria and her brother Alfredo, who both have no formal training in the culinary arts. At the marketplace and Craft Fair in the Food & Wine Festival, Daniele was selling Franco’s Lounge Classic Red Sauce. “This is my first year here, and I was quite nervous. I was glad I was first this morning so I could get it over and done with,” Daniele said.

WVU students must strive toward equality Last week, there was an incident involving The Rack, the student food pantry located in the Student Organization Services wing of the Mountainlair, in which an unknown person took a large portion of the food stock and left a note containing racial slurs. The note was found by Jacqueline Dooley, program coordinator of Student Organization Services. She believed the note was targeted toward her because she is African-

American and the director of The Rack. While there is no proof that the note left at the Mountainlair was done by students at West Virginia University, it does have an impact on the representation of the University to the public. The state of West Virginia may have a low minority population, but here at WVU, it only takes a short walk through campus to see that our community is culturally diverse.

Our University is consistently making strides toward diversity and acceptance. Unfortunately, one simple act like this sets us all back in our mission to have an inclusive community where all members feel accepted and able to express themselves. Education is the only way to resolve any problem, especially racial intolerance. The note clearly depicted racial bigotry and was believed to be left there on Martin Luther

King Jr. Day. Students should realize the importance of becoming educated about racial issues. WVU offers multiple classes on this subject. Other ways to get involved include attending extracurricular programs, listening to speakers on campus and participating in diverse organizations. Even though racial issues may not affect you directly, it negatively and drastically affects society as a whole.

Everyone should be concerned when problems such as this occur. It may seem as though issues like this are constantly being addressed, but incidents like this show us that they’re not being resolved or handled appropriately. And until racism no longer exists, issues regarding race and equality will always matter and should be important to all citizens.

With textbook prices on the rise, students should economize omar ghabra columnist

It’s that time again. With a new year and a new semester just under way, many of you have probably already gone out and spent hundreds of dollars on textbooks you may or may not end up needing. With textbooks becoming increasingly more expensive, costing as much as $200 per book, students can easily end up spending upwards of $500 each semester. A study conducted by the California Student Public Interest Research Group found that students spend an average of $900 on textbooks per school year. For many students already struggling to keep up with the costs of food, housing and tuition in this sluggish economy, this is simply too much. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Producer Price Index, the cost of textbooks is rising at more than four times the inflation rate of manufactured goods. The fact of the matter is, students are being exploited. There is no reason anyone should be spending that much on textbooks, and there are plenty of options that make it

easy to avoid these unnecessary costs. It seems as though many students are simply ignorant of these options. Thankfully, this can be easily changed. Taking the following simple steps will make you a smarter textbook consumer and can save you hundreds of dollars each semester. Don’t purchase textbooks before the start of the semester. Most of us have probably purchased textbooks that we don’t end up needing. Purchasing a textbook that only serves to collect dust on the shelf is one of the most frustrating ways for students to waste their money. This, however, is easily avoidable. Never buy a textbook before knowing whether or not it is required for the course. Textbooks will often be listed as a requirement for courses at bookstores or on the syllabuses despite the fact that professors for that particular course cover all the material that is needed for exams during lecture. For these courses, textbooks are far from required and are simply reference books that one can easily do without. Unless you’ve spoken to fellow students who have already taken a particular course, there’s no way for you to know

whether or not your book will be truly required. Wait until the class begins, and ask the professor if the book is absolutely necessary or if you can just as easily excel in the course without it. Often, you will find the latter is true, and, unless you want the book as a supplemental resource, you can pass on it.

students get their textbooks. Even the campus bookstore now offers a book rental service, although the selection is very poor compared to some of the online services. Either way, renting books is a great way to save hundreds of dollars. One rental website that has really taken off in the past year is Chegg provides a great selection of rentals at low prices, and they plant a tree for every order that is made. Why just save money when you can help save the environment, too?

Shop online. After you’ve taken this first step and determined which books you will be needing, search for them online.

Letter to the editoR Where do we go from here? On Aug. 16, 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered an address to the annual convention of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in Atlanta. The topic of his address was, “Where Do We Go From Here?” By 1967, the tireless activists at work during this era had celebrated numerous victories, including the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. However, King understood that the work of social justice was not complete; he understood that civil rights and economic rights were not mutually exclusive. Millions of Americans lived i n an abject poverty perpetuated by unemployment and underemployment. He stated during his address, “There are


40 million poor people here, and one day, we must ask the question, ‘Why are there 40 million poor people in America?’” In the nearly 50 years since King’s death, millions of people have taken on the radical work of helping the poor, the unemployed, the underemployed, the hungry, etc. West Virginia University has a long history of civic engagement. One shining example currently on campus is The Rack. Since its start in late August of 2010, The Rack has given students in search of a meal a pantry to visit to gather food at no cost. Yet, at the time we celebrate King’s life and work, The Rack’s director, Jacqueline Dooley, was the victim of a racial attack. As stated in an article in The Daily Athenaeum on Friday a note with multiple racial slurs and racist caricatures was left at The Rack and was seemingly directed at Ms. Dooley.

So, I ask, where do we go from here? I do not believe this incident should be brushed off as the random act of a “racist.” Something much deeper happened last week. What is most disturbing to me is not that this incident happened on the day set aside to celebrate King’s life. It is most disturbing that this act may have been committed by someone who benefitted from Ms. Dooley’s and the University’s concern for students who may struggle to eat on a daily basis. This is the kind of concern that was a major part of King’s work. King dedicated himself to creating a humane America for all people, especially the man or woman responsible for slapping Ms. Dooley’s hand, a hand extended in aid. I do not know Ms. Dooley very well, but I’m confident she treated every student who came to The Rack with basic human decency. WVU is fortunate to have

a leader in President James P. Clements, who is committed to building a more diverse and inclusive campus; numerous students, faculty and staff devote their time and talents each year for the same purpose. Various members of the community are actively working to create a welcoming multicultural Morgantown. But, the sad reality is, the great work these people do cannot completely stop the poor behavior exhibited on campus last week. Prejudice is amongst us and the people who hold onto fear and bias may act out from time to time. It will be up to those striving to enhance and maintain an atmosphere of civility and respect, those upholding core Mountaineer values, and those who, like me, are deeply saddened by this act to make it clear that negative racial displays of any sort will not be condoned. Where do we go from here?

Maybe the first step is dialogue. I do not mean the kind of “kum ba yah/why can’t we all just get along” dialogue that operates mainly to simply brush the matter aside as quickly as possible. The kind of dialogue that is needed in the wake of the attack on Ms. Dooley is open, honest and fueled by a real desire for compassionate understanding. This kind of dialogue must include members of all races joined together out of an abiding love for the University, the city of Morgantown and all its inhabitants. On Wednesday, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Rhododendron Room of the Mountainlair, the West Virginia University Association of Black Journalists will be holding a panel discussion to address last week’s situation. The panel will consist of a diverse group of WVU faculty, staff and students. The event is open to all members of the WVU commu-

nity, and WVUABJ hopes many will attend. At the end of his address to the SCLC, King said, “But difficult and painful as it is, we must walk on in the days ahead with an audacious faith in the future.” The WVU community, too, must walk with an “audacious faith in the future.” WVUABJ understands that it cannot completely heal the wound the incident left behind in a 90-minute session. However, the members hope the panel discussion will be a part of a sustained conversation about the racial climate on campus. We hope the discussion will take steps toward a peaceful and loving future and the beginning of an attempt to answer the same question King asked his supporters and colleagues back in 1967. We hope you will join us. Tori Arthur is a journalism professor at WVU.

Status update How often are you on Facebook? “I check it like every hour. It’s like my prime way of communication these days. I just kind of leave the window up”

Life without Facebook JAKE POTTS A&E WRITER

Facebook is a social networking tool that has been used and abused by hundreds of millions all over the globe. Started with the purposes of social networking and bringing members closer together via the Internet, Facebook has grown to be an influential power unfathomed by its original creators. With over 500 million current users, Facebook is growing daily, reaching approximately 170 countries around the globe. So, what is it about Facebook that makes it so addicting? While some in the Facebook world uses it as a tool to branch out businesses, inquire about news and information and connect with people around the globe, the general population uses Facebook for less influential reasons. This population of Facebookers like to use the social network for creeping on friends and colleagues and for playing pointless games.

It’s after a recent selfdiscovery that I learned the pointlessness of this website. On the positive side, the site does have the ability to reconnect people with the past and share the joys of the present in a very convenient manner. Positive aspects of Facebook like these are especially convenient for the college lifestyle; however, I found myself spending countless hours looking at the same old statuses and sifting through the same photo albums. Facebook has also become a major advocate for procrastination: an activity that leads to getting absolutely nothing done. College students depend on Facebook daily for their connection to the outside world, making it one of our most important lifelines, even if we don’t realize it. West Virginia University sophomore education major Katie Schaer and sophomore fashion major Ali Burns find Facebook to be helpful in their sorority lives. “Facebook has come in really handy whenever we’re trying to put together parties or events,” Schaer

said. “It’s easier to send out the messages and get everyone together.” Even though some students use Facebook for good, it also has proven to be a tool of distraction and procrastination. “Facebook is just something to do whenever I get bored or don’t really feel like doing my homework,” Schaer said. “It’s just really easy to spend a lot of time doing nothing on it.” “I find myself checking my Facebook six or seven times a day,” Burns said. “Whenever I get up or don’t really have anything to do, I just get on there and look around at what everyone’s up to.” Freshman business and economics major Kyle Wine said he isn’t a fan of Facebook, but finds himself addicted to it nonetheless. “Even though I don’t really use the site as much as other people do, I still get on there for hours and do absolutely nothing,” Wine said. Senior psychology major Joe Tobjy has recently decided to delete his Facebook. “I really had no use to be on the site. I didn’t put up statuses or add photos, and

“I have it on my phone, and I always check it in class.”

“It depends which day it is, but on average like three hours.”

Jake Potts is going against the 500 million active users of Facebook by deleting his account. Follow his break from the ultimate time-wasting site on our A&E blog.

Kenisa Davis, Freshman marketing major looking at the same old stuff got pretty old for me, so I just got rid of Facebook altogether,” Tobjy said. As of Saturday evening, I have chosen to free myself of the Facebook addiction in hopes for a rise in productivity. I want to feel less like a creep, spending the hours informing myself of everybody’s happenings and whereabouts. Although some may think this idea is less than realistic, I’m hoping to restore my natural networking instincts: a smile and a handshake.

’85 Flood to perform, livestream free show at ’Lair Gluck Theatre by alex mcpherson

NOW HIRING The Daily Athenaeum is currently hiring for the the following positions.


U92 and ’85 Flood are teaming up to bring free music to the Gluck Theatre. As part of tonight’s Morgantown Sound show on U92, the Gluck will be opening up to a live audience as ’85 Flood plays old and new songs live on streaming radio. Program director Jeff Osburn and broadcast engineer Alex Gavula have been working for a long time to build the Morgantown Sound to the point of live music. “We’re really excited because when I was at U92, it was a big goal of mine to get more live, local music on the air,” said Aaron Hawley of ’85 Flood. “I’m really excited that Jeff and Alex and those guys really have the ball rolling with that one.” Osburn said the purpose of the show is to bring a live performance vibe to anyone that wants to hear it. “The whole point of the broadcast is to beam a live performance right out to anyone who wants to listen, and making it an actual live show is the best thing I can think of to accomplish that,” Osburn said. Hawley and ’85 Flood will play an assortment of original tunes from its two albums in addition to new works in the making. After replacing their drummer in May, the band is looking forward to proving it has the same sound but with a new energy. “I really feel like we’re hitting our stride and our sound is as good as it’s ever been,” Hawley said. “All of our new tunes have us really excited to play them for a worldwide radio audience.” As well as kicking off a new semester of live music on the Morgantown Sound, the show will also celebrate ’85 Flood’s upcoming 123 Pleasant St. show Friday with the Greens. “We play with the Greens each semester, and it’s always an exciting rock show,” Hawley said. “Those guys are our

HOROSCOPES BY JACQUELINE BIGAR BORN TODAY This year, an in-law or a distant associate plays a key role. Your vision becomes broader because of this person. Some of you will be exploring new interests. Thoughts of travel, getting a degree or taking a workshop keep reappearing. If single, you could have unusually high energy. You could become frustrated if a suitor doesn’t have the same bounce. People will pop into your life out of the blue. If you are attached, the two of you share a new hobby or interest. Plan a special trip this year. SCORPIO challenges not only you, but also others.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) HHHH Handle a personal matter hands-on. You could be overly tired and worn by others. Someone even could toss money into the mix in an attempt at manipulation. The only way to win this is to not play the game. Tonight: Nothing complicated. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) HHHH Pressure builds around your daily life. Someone might be attempting to coerce you into doing what he or she wants. Your charm and ability to demonstrate the benefit of a particular path will turn the tide in your favor, despite this person. Tonight: Visit with a friend.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) HHHHH Implementing an idea could test your ability to communicate and move people toward your type of thinking. A partner could be innately difficult or closed down. You cannot change another’s mood. Tonight: Listen to a loved one’s possible ranting.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) HHH Your instincts often serve you well with finances. A wild risk still could become a big problem. Regroup and rethink recent decisions. A child could be difficult. Don’t allow someone to coerce you by throwing around his or her weight. Tonight: Balance your checkbook.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) HHH Your ability to bypass problems could be challenged. Information heads down the pike that indicates your processing could be off. Look at areas you might not be seeing or where you have closed off an issue. Tonight: Don’t push yourself. It is only Monday.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) HHHHH Once more, someone reveals his or her inner agenda. You sometimes get tired of having the same conversation. As a result, coldness emanates from you. Stay in touch with your desires. Be willing to state your feelings. Tonight: In your element.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) HHHHH A partner’s difficult yet enlightening attitude forces you to revisit an issue. Ask questions. Be willing to pull in an expert or two. Be willing to open up. Your innate playfulness emerges, despite a hassle or two. Tonight: Ignoring the fact that it is Monday night.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) HHH If you don’t feel up to snuff, take today off. If you are a bit blue, surround yourself with friends. Don’t push too hard. You will perk up in a day or so, after giving yourself the space to recharge. Tonight: Screen calls.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) HHHH Zero in on your priorities. If you do, someone’s heavy-duty manipulations will remain ineffective. Meetings point you in a new direction. Don’t hesitate to act rather than talk. Avoid thinking about an argument. You need to focus. Tonight: Where people are; not alone. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) HHH You are at a point where you would like to shed some of your responsibility. Your priorities are rapidly changing and, as a result, what you want to do with your time will change. Allow this transformation to emerge. Tonight: Burning the candle at both ends. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) HHHH Reach out for more information and different opinions. Many people would fear this type of diversity, as it would take away or nullify their plan. You welcome knowledge. This increasing information can only make a project or your life better. Tonight: Find an outlet for your high energy. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) HHHHH Work with key people individually, allowing a greater give-and-take of ideas. Resist bigger meetings at the moment. Take some time to sift through different suggestions. How sound are they? Curb a tendency to sit on anger, as you are likely to express it in an inappropriate manner. Tonight: Catch up on a roommate’s or loved one’s day. BORN TODAY Actress Tatyana Ali (1979), singer Neil Diamond (1941), comedian John Belushi (1949)

Mountaineer men use solid defensive effort to rebound from Marshall loss

by tony dobies SPORTS EDITOR


In the first 10 minutes of the first half of No. 21 West Virginia’s 56-46 win over South Florida Sunday afternoon, it seemed like there was still a lingering hangover from the Mountaineers’ loss to Marshall last Wednesday. But, after two free throws by Hugh Robertson cut the WVU (13-5, 4-2 Big East Conference) lead down to two points, the Mountaineers finally woke up. In the final nine minutes of the first half, the Mountaineers went on an 11-2 run to take a 27-16 lead into the locker room. “We just played our system. We did what we’re supposed to do, and it worked,� said sophomore forward Deniz Kilicli. “It wasn’t about the other team or what they were doing, it’s about what we were doing. “When we do what we do well, we get good shots, and we can win games.� Much of that run was thanks to an impressive defensive performance by WVU at the end of the first half against USF (7-14, 1-7 Big East Conference). The Mountaineers forced seven of the Bulls’ turnovers in that span. “We went from playing man to playing matchup, and I thought our matchup was pretty good,� said West Virginia coach Bob Huggins. “We played really well defensively at times.� South Florida got back-toback buckets to cut the deficit to seven in the first minute of the second half, but that was the closest the Bulls would get. After Augustus Gilchrist’s layup to cut it to seven, the Mountaineers went on another 11-2 run, this time extending their lead to 16 points. The 46-point output was tied

It was Thoroughman’s second career start. for the lowest points the Mountaineers have ever given up to a Big East Conference team. West Virginia did have a difficult time slowing down Gilchrist, who finished with a game-high 20 points and 10 rebounds. “We knew that Gilchrist was going to get what he gets,� Kilicli said. “But the other guys, we couldn’t let them do whatever they wanted. We worked on making them take tough shots so they’re not comfortable, and we can get rebounds.� And that’s exactly what they did against the Bulls Sunday, as without Gilchrist’s six-of-12 per-

formance from the field, USF made just 10 of 37 shots. That defense and solid play on the glass eventually led to some good offense for the Mountaineers the rest of the way. Senior guard Casey Mitchell led West Virginia, registering his first career double-double. He scored 13 points to go along with his career-best 14 rebounds. Forwards Kevin Jones and John Flowers also scored 13 points apiece, and Kilicli finished the game with eight points and eight rebounds.

Strong second half boosts No. 9 WVU past South Florida BY MATTHEW PEASLEE SPORTS WRITER

Up by just seven at halftime, the No. 9 West Virginia women’s basketball team looked like it might have fallen into a trap. In the first half against South Florida, the Mountaineers might have been looking ahead to their two-game road trip against top 25 opponents. But, in the second half, WVU took care of business. The Mountaineers went on a 19-0 run early in the second half en route to a 78-52 victory over South Florida Saturday at the WVU Coliseum in front of 4,555 fans, the seventh-largest crowd in program history. It was the 30th-straight win at the Coliseum for the Mountaineers (19-1, 0-6). “I thought we had to have this game, going on the road two games next week,� said WVU coach Mike Carey. “It was an important game for us here at home.� South Florida opened up the second half with two-straight baskets to cut the Mountainmatt sunday/the daily athenaeum eers’ lead to four points.

West Virginia has yet to lose the feeling it had after losing its second-straight game in Big East Conference play earlier this year. That feeling has pulled the Mountaineers from a disappointing season to one that has hopes of another NCAA Tournament run. Despite that feeling deep in the back of their minds last Wednesday against Marshall, the Mountaineers reverted back to the team that lost to St. John’s and Marquette to start conference play. They didn’t work together well at all. Guard Casey Mitchell would call for the ball and take on three defenders before throwing up an air ball. Point guard Truck Bryant would drive uncontrollably into a defender and be called for a charge. The team stopped collectively rebounding. It also started to get caught up in the number of fouls called, too. It was like watching a replay from a game in November or December. In the 75-71 loss to Marshall, all of those things the Mountaineers had learned not to do were being done again. And, once again, it didn’t work. “It bothers me we weren’t ready to play,� said WVU forward Kevin Jones after that game. “We knew where we were at four games ago, and

He is the 89thbest prospect for the class of 2012. Nolan has made previous visits to the WVU campus, with his most recent coming last Friday, when he attended a men’s basketball practice with his high school teammates. Mountaineer head coach Bob Huggins was in the stands for Nolan’s Friday night game, sitting just a few rows behind the St. Benedict’s bench. “He’s a pretty hard coach. He’s tough,” Nolan said of Huggins. Nolan admitted he doesn’t know where the Mountaineers sit on his list of current offers. He wants to give himself and his family time to build a relationship with the coaches before signing a letter of intent. “As soon as I feel comfortable and as soon as the family feels comfortable, that’s when I’ll be making the decision,” Nolan said.

Coleman, who models his game after Ohio State’s star freshman Jared Sullinger, said he is still weighing his options, and that he hasn’t crossed West Virginia off his list yet. Coleman said some key factors in his decision were playing with a point guard that can contain and get him the ball, a good coach and solid supporting cast and finally, a place he can get a good education. Other potential suitors for Coleman are Syracuse, North Carolina and Kansas.

No. 1 WVU outshoots Alaska-Fairbanks by brad joyal sports writer

Sometimes even the most competitive rivalries in all of sports turn out to be one-sided. When No. 1 West Virginia rifle team hosted No. 2 AlaskaFairbanks this weekend, head coach Jon Hammond hoped he’d find out where his team stood out among the nation’s elite. He found out his team is the best. Senior Nicco Campriani, with a record-setting performance, helped lead WVU (91, 5-0 GARC) to a 4,696-4,646 victory over Alaska-Fairbanks this weekend. “It was a great result,” Hammond said. “Not only just to win, but to win by a good margin with so many great performances.” Campriani put forth one of

the best performances in his heralded collegiate career, shooting a perfect score of 600 in air rifle to go along with a 590 score in smallbore. The perfect air rifle score ties the world record, but Campriani will not earn credit for his performance because he did not shoot it in an international competition. Campriani’s aggregate score of 1,190 is a nation-best mark. Although the Florence, Italy, native becomes the first collegiate shooter to post the unblemished mark of 600 this season, the reigning air rifle world champion is not the first to ever do so. In 2005, Alaska-Fairbanks’ Matt Rawlings became the first collegiate shooter to accomplish the feat. “I’ve seen (Campriani) shoot 600 before in Colorado,” Hammond said. “It was one of the best performances I’ve seen him shoot. He was ready

to shoot a good performance, and I know this 600 meant a little more to him with it being a big match with more pressure.” For the second-consecutive week, the Mountaineers were able to capture both disciplines, defeating the Nanooks 2,374-2,333 and 2,3222,313 in air rifle and smallbore, respectively. “Air rifle has been doing really well, as of late, and there have been some great smallbore scores being shot,” Hammond said. Sophomore Petra Zublasing finished second with an aggregate score of 1,174, while junior Justin Pentz’s score of 1,169 was enough to finish third. Senior Andy Lamson compiled his best score of the season to tie Alaska-Fairbanks’ Anna Hjelmevoll at 1,168 to finish fourth. Zublasing and senior

Tommy Santelli each shot 592 in air rifle to tie for second place, while Lamson and junior Michael Kulbacki tied for fifth with scores of 590. “This team is certainly in good position,” Hammond said. “There are a lot of juniors and seniors who bring experience to this team. It’s possibly the most talented team and one of the best we’ve had.” Even after defeating the No. 2-ranked team by 50 marks, the nation’s No. 1 team still sees room for improvement. “We’ve obviously been pushing to break the 4,700 barrier, which has never been done,” Hammond said. “There is a little more confidence each time we have good results. It’s a sport where, unless you shoot a 600 like Nicco, there are always areas for improvement.”


Mountaineers open EWL play undefeated by matthew peaslee sports writer

West Virginia wrestling coach Craig Turnbull believes confidence breeds success. That might be the reason his team has made significant improvement through the 2010-11 season and has opened up conference play undefeated. Coming off an upset at No. 8 Illinois Jan. 7, the Mountaineers fell just short of a second straight upset against Michigan State at home last weekend. The team got back on track this weekend, as it opened up Eastern Wrestling League play with back-toback victories. “We’ve been very consistent over the past few meets,” Turnbull said. “The confi-

dence has definitely grown, and from this meet on we’ll see the great results from the hard work they’ve been putting in.” WVU (6-4, 2-0) earned wins over Bloomsburg (11-3, 0-2) and Clarion (3-3, 1-1) over the weekend to sit atop the EWL standings. Bloomsburg entered Fridays tilt with the Mountaineers riding a nine-match winning streak. Turnbull said the Huskies are one of the best home wrestling programs in the conference, so defeating them on the road was an accomplishment in itself. “They came out with a lot of energy and a positive approach to the match,” he said. “They wrestled very hard at every position and in their own gym.”

WVU attacked early and jumped out to a 13-0 lead thanks to wins from sophomore Shane Young, freshman Nathan Pennesi, senior Brandon Rader and freshman Michael Morales. Beating Derek Shingara by a decisive 4-3, Morales earned a takedown after stumbling and almost being pinned within the opening second of the bout. At 197 pounds, senior Kyle Rooney earned two takedowns over Richard Perry to ultimately give the Mountaineers the deciding points to win 19-12. The intense and competitive match at Bloomsburg carried over an equal feeling to Clarion as the Mountaineers dominated the match start to finish. WVU one-upped its per-

formance against Bloomsburg a day later against Clarion. Turnbull called the “best performance, top-to-bottom, all season,” as the Mountaineers defeated the Golden Eagles 39-4. All but one Mountaineer grappler notched a win. Oklahoma State transfer Alex Meade earned his first career victory at WVU. At 165 pounds, senior Donnie Jones fought hard for a 6-5 win over Bekzod Abdurakmonov. He earned a takedown with just 10 seconds remaining in the match. “It was probably the most complete match we have put together. From 125 to heavyweight, there were very good efforts,” Turnbull said.


WVU falls in close meet at No. 10 N.C. State by Sebouh Majarian

narrow 194.55-194.475 defeat to No. 10 N.C. State Friday night to open Eastern Athletic The No. 18 West Virginia Gymnastics League play. The Mountaineers (2-2, gymnastics team suffered a sports writer

0-1) rallied from a first-rotation deficit to tie the score at the end of the meet. But, NCAA rules allow coaches to inquire about a score, and after the judges reviewed the marks, the judges added a deciding .075 to N.C. State (1-1, 1-0) to give the Wolfpack the win. “We performed better than we did against Georgia,” said WVU coach Linda BurdetteGood. “We made a few small mistakes, but overall we had a pretty good meet.” The Mountaineers defeated N.C. State on beam and floor by outscoring the Wolfpack 97.275 to 96.975 on those combined apparatuses. N.C. State claimed victories on uneven bars (48.7-48.4) and vault (48.875-48.8). Senior Amy Bieski finished first overall in the all-around with a season-best 39.1 which moved her into 12th place on the program’s all-time career points list. Bieski passed former gymnasts Karla Hairston and Mehgan Morris. Bieski now has 1,629.775 career points. “We were very happy she had a very good competition.” Burdette-Good said. “She performed with aggression and looked very focused. I thought this was her best meet to date.” It was also Bieski’s 18th-career 39-point plus score.

Sophomore Kaylyn Millick finished second to Bieski with 38.825 points, including a season-high score of 9.725 on floor. The Mountaineers began the meet on bars and had one of their best performances of the season with a 48.4. Senior Emily Kerwin matched her career high with a score of 9.8 on the bars. Millick and junior Nicole Roach tied for fourth in the event, as both scored 9.725. The Wolfpack opened on vault scoring 48.875 points to take the early advantage. West Virginia scored a 48.8 on vault in the second rotation, as Bieski earned 9.825 points and freshman standout Hope Sloanhoffer tallied a 9.8. Sloanhoffer and Bieski tied in first place with N.C. State’s Stephanie Ouellette on floor, as all three scored 9.825. “We were much more focused and we stayed together,” Burdette-Good said of her team’s preparation following a loss to Georgia last week. “They seemed to be in a good place during the competition.” Burdette-Good thought the team got off to a slow start due to the judges taking their time releasing the scores. “It might have thrown them out of rhythm,” she said.

West Virginia forward Dan Jennings dunks the ball in a game earlier this month against Providence. Jennings’ future with the team may be in doubt.

Dan Jennings’ future may be in doubt By Brian Kuppelweiser Sports Writer

With the majority of the second half to play Sunday, West Virginia men’s basketball forward Dan Jennings left the Mountaineers’ bench and did not return. Head coach Bob Huggins was unsure why Jennings left, and it could mean the departure of the sophomore from the team. “It’s unexcused. Inexcusable,” Huggins said. “He’ll never be seen again, I guess.” Huggins didn’t specifically say whether Jennings was dismissed from the team, put some media outlets reporting just after the game, Jennings had been dismissed from the program. When pressed further, Huggins explained the lack of a role Jennings has played on the team this season. While the New York native has started four games, including the 75-71 loss to Marshall last week, Jennings is only averaging 8.6 minutes, 2.1 points and 2.5 rebounds per game. “The truth of the matter is that he has been a non-entity,” Huggins said. “Look at his career stats, we did not just lose (forward) Kevin Jones.”

Huggins said he has used Jennings to try to motivate other players. If Jennings is ruled off the team, WVU will be with just nine scholarship players on its roster. Players said they didn’t know why Jennings left during the game. “I really didn’t even realize it,” said forward Deniz Kilicli. “I came to the bench and everything was fine. We were just talking ... and someone said Danny left with 18 minutes left ... I don’t know what to say.” Mitchell gets double-double This season, guard Casey Mitchell has been one of West Virginia’s go-to scoring threats, as evidenced by his 16.6 points per game. On Sunday, it was no different, as the senior led the Mountaineers with 13 points. In addition to those points, which is what Mitchell was known for prior to joining WVU from junior college, he pulled down 14 rebounds to record his first double-double. “Coach always tells me about how athletic I am, so I just used it for something other than scoring,” Mitchell said. “Every time

the ball went up, I rebounded it. A lot of the time, the ball just landed in my hands.” Forward Kevin Jones was impressed by his teammates’ effort in WVU’s 56-46 victory over South Florida. “I knew he had a lot of rebounds, but I didn’t know he had 14,” Jones said. “That is just Casey, though, when the shots are not falling, he just went and did something else.” Huggins and his assistant coaches have been on Mitchell constantly about the importance of using his athleticism to rebound the ball. “We need him to rebound the ball at both ends,” Huggins said. “He is very capable, as everybody knows, since he is athletic and strong.” Thoroughman starts The Mountaineers had a new face in the starting lineup, Sunday. Forward Cam Thoroughman got his second career start against the Bulls. “That stuff doesn’t really matter to me,” Thoroughman said. “I just go out there and do the same thing.” The redshirt senior did have an idea he would be starting heading into the contest, as USF

boasts a formidable post presence in Augustus Gilchrist. “I kind of figured I was going to get into the lineup today,” Thoroughman said. Kilicli is fine coming off the bench Kilicli has started on occasion this season, and at times, he has been effective in that role. But, it is not a role that Kilicli fully enjoys, as he is in favor of coming off the bench. “Every time I start, the referees are looking at me because I am European, and I am 6-foot-9,” Kilicli said. “I told the coaches ‘what do you think if I came off the bench?’” Huggins agreed with the idea, and now Kilicli expects to fill that role for the rest of the season. “I am going to come off the bench for the rest of the year, probably,” Kilicli said. “I feel more comfortable, and I am able to watch what is going on in the game.” Huggins said he is not sure whether Kilicli will do so the rest of the season, though. He said it depends on opposing matchups.

Miles returning to form following injury By John Terry Multimedia Editor

West Virginia point guard Sarah Miles air-mailed a pass over the head of wide-open forward Madina Ali on a breakaway in the second half of the West Virginia women’s basketball team’s 78-52 win over South Florida Saturday. The ball was so far over Ali’s head, it sailed into the stands behind the basket and hit a fan. West Virginia head coach Mike Carey just laughed. “She tried to be Magic Johnson,” Carey said. Even though the fan caught the pass instead of Ali, Carey could laugh because he could see glimpses that Miles is returning to her old, pre-injured self. “At times, she was driving and finishing,” Carey said. “There were times on defense she came up big for us.” The senior guard has played in just 12 games this season due to a preseason wrist injury and a knee injury suffered at the Paradise Jam Tournament over Thanksgiving Break. Miles finished with a seasonhigh 16 points Saturday. She also had a team-leading three assists and was 6-for-6 from the freethrow line. “I’m still working on it and just trying to get to 100 percent,” Miles said. “I felt a lot better about today than the past couple of games.”


Continued from page 7 made three of her six attempts. South Florida’s Andrea Smith had 16 of her own, as well. Carey was disappointed in the way his team defended against Smith. The Mountaineers wanted to try to limit her scoring. “We were trying to shut down (Smith), but we let her catch it too much,” Carey said. “We’ve got to do a little better job than that, but we had to do what we needed to do to win.” WVU turned the ball over 24 times but forced 20 South Flor-

Aside from the statistics, Miles has had to work at getting back to game speed. She admitted it has taken her longer than she expected. “You think that you can just leave and come back and everything will be the same, but you really cant,” Miles said. “It’s harder to get back into things.” Miles said that it’s just as important for her not to only get her timing back on the court, but also for her teammates to get used to her at the point guard position. It didn’t make things easier that Carey changed the way West Virginia ran the fast break this season. That has taken adjusting to, as well. Her backup, freshman Brooke Hampton, is a much different kind of player than Miles. Carey said Miles relies on her speed up the court, while Hampton passes the ball up the court. “(Miles is) starting to understand it a little bit better,” Carey said. “She just tried to do a little too much.” Ali said there’s definitely a difference when Miles and Hampton are on the court, but it’s something the rest of the team must adjust to. “We just have to feed off of what the (point guard) is giving us,” Ali said. “Sarah can’t be going hard out there by herself. It’s different.”

ida turnovers. A large portion of the Mountaineers’ turnovers were on traveling violations. “A lot of it is trying to force passes,” said forward Madina Ali, who finished with 10 points and six rebounds in 17 minutes. “We tend to take two dribbles and pass it while we’re dribbling, and that becomes a problem. I know for myself, I do it a lot.” Ali was limited Saturday because of a stress fracture on her left leg. “It hurts all the time,” Ali said. “We’re doing the right treatment, though.”

West Virginia forward Deniz Kilicli posts up on South Florida guard Augustus Gilchrist Sunday at the WVU Coliseum.


Continued from page 7 we knew we didn’t want to be in that spot again … That’s a cause for concern, and we need to refocus.” It was mind-boggling that West Virginia somehow couldn’t get motivated to play its in-state rival. It was even more concerning that it seems to confuse the team, too. After such a disappointing defeat – not necessarily to the team but more so to the entire WVU fanbase – West Virginia needed a game to get back on track after all of that. The team had a meeting on the bus on the way back to Morgantown following the Marshall loss – the second of its kind this season – to discuss ways to improve. “Some teams are like that,” said forward Deniz Kilicli. “Last year, we didn’t have any problem, but it’s like a watch. If you take out one piece, it doesn’t work anymore. It’s hard to find that piece, but we’re working on it.” On Sunday against a struggling South Florida team, the Mountaineers played like a team again. The Mountaineers fed off their own energy, because the crowd didn’t provide much of it, and found a way to get up for perhaps the worst Big East team and beat it soundly. In the 56-46 victory, West Virginia received a total team effort once again from most of its players. Mitchell led the Mountaineers with 13 points. It was the senior’s first career double-double, too, as he finished with 14 rebounds. Kevin Jones and John Flowers also had 13 points. In fact, WVU held South Florida to the lowest number

of points scored against the Mountaineers in Big East play in program history. If the Mountaineers can become more consistent and play like they did Sunday and during their four-game win streak prior to the Marshall game, WVU will have no trouble making the NCAA Tournament. “It’s so much easier to achieve your goals when you’re rowing in the same direction,” said WVU head coach Bob Huggins. “If you have a guy rowing in a different direction, they just screw everything up.” West Virginia has been anything but consistent this season, though. And it seems they may have one guy rowing the wrong way. Forward Dan Jennings, who hasn’t made a big impact this season, left the bench in the second half and did not return. Huggins said it could be the last time he is seen in a WVU uniform. If that is the case, and Jennings has not bought into the team’s goals, it will hurt West Virginia down the stretch if he stays and plays, because WVU will only win if its collective goal is the same. At times, like in a game against then-No. 8 Purdue just more than a week ago, the Mountaineers have the looks of one of the best teams in the country. But, against Marshall, WVU struggled to look like a team deserving of an NCAA Tournament bid. If West Virginia somehow can find some consistency over a brutal 12-game Big East slate the rest of the way, anything can happen. When this team plays the right way, it can beat just about anyone.
