A group on campus is working to help students maximize their potential, develop career skills and achieve their goals. This evening, Southwestern Advantage LEAD program will be holding a seminar entitled, “Making Decisions to Maximize Your Career Freedom.” Wilson Smith, one of the five campus leaders for the program at West Virginia University will lead the seminar. Southwestern Advantage started in 1855 as a summer program for students, but has evolved into an organization that now helps in-school students throughout the world through the LEAD Program. Its main mission is to be the strongest organization in the world by helping young people develop the skills and character they need in life to reach their goals. Anthony Hendrickson, another LEAD program campus leader, said the seminar is free to students and runs about an hour long. “We really like to focus on is relationships because relationships (are) busi-

ness, and we make sure at every seminar we do icebreakers that are really intuitive and help students open up to information. “It kind of opens their minds up to what we will be teaching prior to the seminar,” Hendrickson said. “One thing that almost all college students believed coming into college is that they would end up with a better career than they would have otherwise, so basically the seminar will be about how to take what you learn in college and set yourself up for a path for success to reach that ultimate career that you want to get to.” Hendrickson said one of the ways they teach some of the skills is by talking about the job interview – how to look at job offers and then look at the other side, too, including how companies view students while they are going through the interview process. “We try to actually prepare students for interviewers, like what they’re looking for and the top personality traits that interviewers hire for, which is professionalism, high-energy, confidence, self-monitoring and intellectual curiosity,” he said. “At the

Former WVU football player pens autobiography by megan calderado staff writer

After playing football at West Virginia University and going on to play in the National Football League, Wesley Lyons just tackled his biggest accomplishment yet – publishing his autobiography. Lyons graduated from West Virginia University in December 2009 and was eventually picked up by the Pittsburgh Steelers. His book, “The Pursuit with Patience,” as well as his motivational speaking, has landed him a spot on Pittsburgh’s 50 Finest in 2013, named by the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. After going undrafted in the 2010 NFL draft, Lyons continued to work out with teams and eventually landed a two-year contract with the Pittsburgh

Steelers. “The Pursuit with Patience” is the story of Lyons’ experiences through youth, college and professional football, as well as the challenges he faced on his way. “I wrote the book while I was working with the Steelers. I was going to practice and learning plays during the day, then I would come home and write,” Lyons said. “It’s about my journey and some of the obstacles I had to overcome and the stuff a lot of [athletes] go through,” he said. “It also talks about the business side of the NFL and about the ups and downs – it’s not what people think it is.” Lyons said people won’t really know what it’s like to be a player in the National Football League unless they follow him through his per-

Pirates Day campaign hits social media By Kaity Wilson Staff writer

A group of West Virginia University public relations students, who have been planning day of food, fun and baseball, recently launched their social media campaign. For their capstone course, the students are working to present WVU Day at PNC Park. Rachel Roman, a public relations student, said she

believes the social media campaign will be very helpful in attracting students to buy tickets to the game. “Last year, students were able to use their student IDs to purchase tickets, but this year we are not doing that,” Roman said. “The social media has made sure that we get that word out to the students.” Through the Twitter handle @DubVPirates, the group has been able to engage with students and

show Michelle Kayda said the club was asked to leave their house earlier this year, therefore it was important to raise money. “The fashion show will benefit the MBGC, because 100 percent of the proceeds go directly towards the club, including money from our sponsors, donations and ticket sales,” Kayda said. WVU students, faculty and members of the community came out to support the MBGC and see a fresh, new clothing line from five different boutiques from around the area. This year’s sponsors for the event were The Domain, Superior Ford Lincoln and Tan1.

PRSSA president Brittany Lavenski said they started planning for the event in November and hoped to raise at least $500. The fashion show ended up raising a total amount of $1,221.58 for the MGBC. “Even though this was the 4th annual fashion show, we’ve never done something like this,” Lavenski said. “Last year, we didn’t have sponsors, so this year

was new and different, and I think it benefited the entire event.” A variety of raffle prizes were awarded, including a bar tab to Joe Mamas, gift cards to Olive Garden, Buffalo Wild Wings, Cupcakerie, Carmona’s, Tilted Kilt, Naticakes, Jimmy Johns, Morgantown Beauty College for spa treatments, tickets to Hollywood Theatres and much more. “It was so much fun working with everyone,” Lavenski said. “It was organized chaos, but with Michelle’s direction, it worked out great.” Kayda and Lavenski both agree this is something they hope continues in the

future. “I know that this event will continue growing and become even more successful in future years,” Kayda said. “Even though this was one of the most stressful things I’ve ever done, it was definitely the most rewarding thing, and it’s what I will remember when I leave college. Just seeing how this money will help benefit the Boys and Girls Club and help them get a new house is the highlight of my college career.” For more information on the MBGC or to find out how one can donate, visit www. mgbclub.org.

many students on campus develop themselves so they can reach their skills and goals outside of college life. “We try to help students develop things that are considered soft skills – transferable skills. “Everything from communication to managing personal relationships, money management and the things they will need to succeed that they may not necessarily have a class on,” Smith said. Smith said the LEAD Pro-

gram holds seminars each week. Some of the previous seminars include “Physical Fitness,” “How to Connect in 90 Seconds” and “Financial Peace.” “Students have the option to come meet with us oneon-one to talk about some of the things they learned at the seminars, but also it’s like having a success coach; they get to meet with us once a week and kind of talk about their goals and how they are progressing,” Smith said. “We give them

tools they can use on a daily basis to help them with the information they learn during the weekly seminars, but also it’s a tool to hold them accountable for their outside goals from everything like how much time should they spend studying for class to how to get along with their roommates.” For more information about Southwestern Advantage, visit www.southwesternadvantage.com.

or you have a lot of stress going on in your day, you shouldn’t do high intensity exercise; you should focus on something on a more moderate or lower intensity, and on the flip side, if you are real sluggish or bored, that might be a day you want to do high intensity exercise.” WELLWVU has initiated a program with the Carruth Center where they will refer patients to WELLWVU, sit down with them and create a 12-week exercise program for them based on their mental health. Exercising can be hard and even harder without the proper footwear, so Morgantown Running was there to assist students in finding

their proper fitting. “If you don’t have the extra stability in there or the right type of shoe, it can cause little injuries here and there: knee problems, lower leg and foot problems,” said Stephanie Caruso, senior nursing student and employee at Morgantown Running. “The shoe is not always the answer to this, but a lot of times people don’t know, and then they get the right shoe, and they’re like, ‘Oh my gosh, this feels so much better’.” Morgantown Running also awarded the male and female triathlon winners with a new pair of shoes. EatWELL is another one of the liveWELL programs designed to help individuals increase fruit, vegetable and whole grain consumption. It also strives to help students gain practical experience

with preparing healthy food and assist them in becoming able to identify nutrient dense foods. . As a part of the eatWELL initiative, WELLWVU made smoothies to encourage consumption of five fruits and vegetables a day. “It’s something a lot of people don’t realize to put in a smoothie, but it’s a way to try something new. Don’t be afraid to put vegetable or different types of fruit in your smoothie,” said Meghan Halbrook, a graduate assistant in the Office of Wellness and Health. “We’re promoting the smoothie, and we also offer recipes that incorporate fruit and veggies so it gives people something new to try. But it’s all healthy; we’re not promoting losing weight or doing anything much, just being healthier, whatever

that may be for you.” The event also provided advice on how to properly prepare and take care of the body after before and after a workout. “Boys especially just buy whey protein because they think that they’re supposed to drink whey protein, but I’m really trying to teach them why is it beneficial to them to take it after they workout,” said Stephanie Mitchell WVU dietetic intern at Ruby Memorial Hospital. “I think it’s been really good for students to see you don’t go out and just buy whey protein. You have to understand why it’s good for your body.” For more information on liveWELL and the liveWELL challenge, visit www.well. wvu.edu/wellness/livewell. danewsroom@mail.wvu.edu

Donald Trump’s ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ returns to NBC with drama, surprises Nick Wesdock A&e writer

A new season of “Celebrity Apprentice” got underway Sunday night with a star-studded cast of returning celebrities. “All-Stars” from previous seasons of the show were invited back for another chance to raise money for charity and become the next Celebrity Apprentice. Donald Trump, the

show’s host and executive producer, brought back many fan favorites to compete in the sixth season, but it wouldn’t truly be reality television without a few villains to stir the pot. Easily the biggest villain of the show after episode one is Omarosa, who participated in season one of “The Apprentice.” She is the only person to be featured on the show three times and never win, hence Piers Morgan nicknaming her “the biggest loser in the history of the

show.” Needless to say, the former teammates don’t get along. Rock star Bret Michaels was the only past winner to return as a contestant – a decision highly discouraged by Trump. Michaels and country singer Trace Adkins were designated the unofficial team captains, and each handpicked the celebrities he wanted on his team. After every celebrity was picked, the teams went back to their rooms to come up

with a team name and project manager for the first task. Michaels’ team named themselves “Power” and, although Michaels wanted to be project manager, he conceded that opportunity to teammate Brande Roderick. Adkins served as project manager for his team, which they named “Plan B.” In the first task, each team was to make and sell meatballs in New York with a simple objective: raise more money than the other

team. Each team took on totally different strategies, but “Plan B” came out on top. Omarosa continued to create drama in the boardroom, where Team Power struggled to answer Trump’s questions about the task. As the cashier Omarosa manipulated her teammates and threw Roderick and Michaels under the bus. Roderick made it clear in the boardroom that she was not cut out to be project manager, but the fact

that she brought in over $100,000 for the team kept her from getting the boot. In the end, Michaels’ decision to return proved wrong, as he was the first one to be fired on the show. Other celebrities sure to make the show interesting include LaToya Jackson, Dennis Rodman, Gary Busey, Lil Jon and Dee Snider. New episodes of “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” air Sundays at 9 p.m. on NBC. daa&e@mail.wvu.edu

SURVIVING MIDTERMS FLICKRIVER

West Virginia University’s Downtown library is ranked among the best college libraries in the nation. Three weeks from now, West Virginia University’s spring break will be under way. Unfortunately for students, midterms stand stubbornly between them and a week of stress-free bliss. Many students make the costly mistake of mentally checking out in the weeks leading up to spring break. After all, it has been a long, dreary slog getting through the first half of the semes-

ter, and fatigue settles in during this time. Don’t make this mistake. Enduring the coming three weeks with your prospects for a good GPA intact is dependent on you performing well in your classes for the next few weeks. Midterm examinations, projects, papers and presentations often comprise anywhere from a third to half of the final grade in any given course.

Considering the substantial impact midterms will have on your final grade, it is very important to ensure you put forth your best effort. Instead of procrastinating now and hoping you can play catch up later on in the semester, why not give yourself a cushion you can fall back on later? This is also a good time to ask professors about your standing in the

course thus far and what improvements you can make for the rest of the semester. Take the time to visit them during their office hours. You’ll likely receive a much more positive response than if you send an email. Need help with your midterm papers? Head over to the Center for Writing Excellence, the English Department’s writing center. They can help you with

anything from narrowing topics to revising your final drafts. Student Support Services offers tutoring to students throughout the semester in a variety of subjects, if you need help studying. Remember, Fr iday, March 22 is the last day to drop a class with a “W” for this spring semester.

Mandatory national service for all Americans? Alexander cohen guest columnist

Charlie Rangel wants to give you a job, and he doesn’t want to let you turn it down. Rangel, a Democratic Congressman from New York, is proposing a law that would force every young American to perform two years of national service – in many cases, military service – by the age of 25. Unlike the Vietnam-era draft, there would be no exception for college students. Some of the costs H.R. 747 would impose on you are obvious: It would take away two irreplaceable years of your life, spending them on purposes that may not contribute to your goals. It might cause skills you’ve developed in high school or college to waste away from lack of practice before you can bring them to the school or career where you want to build on them. And it could disrupt important relationships, sending you far from the people who are important to you. And that’s saying nothing about the physical and psychological harms you could suffer if you’re forced to go into combat – harms Congressman Rangel, who was wounded in the Korean War, knows very well and still wants to impose on unwilling victims. It’s saying nothing about the possibility that you might be sent to war and never come back. But beyond all those obvious costs to you, the bill risks subtler costs we can’t afford to overlook – costs to you, costs to the country, and costs to all of us, even those (like him and me) who’d be exempted on account of age. Rangel thinks this bill would teach patriotism.

ap

Rep. Charles Rangel speaks to reporters during a news conference. “You may go in screaming and yelling,” he says, “but when you come out, you salute the flag.” In other words, you might go in hating what your country is doing to you, but you’ll come out honoring the government that did it—because you will have been forced into the habit of doing whatever the government tells you and, if you’re in uniform, of saluting and obeying all the vast hierarchy of officers the government placed over you.

That is the opposite of the way a free society teaches patriotism, and that is the opposite of the kind of patriotism a free society needs. A free society earns its citizens’ patriotism by protecting their rights. More precisely, a government earns respect, affection and loyalty by making and enforcing laws under which people can live their lives, exercise their liberty, and pursue their own happiness. In such a society, you can see that

your government is providing the security you count on – that it’s protecting you from criminals, from foreign enemies, and from anyone who, under the guise of government, would take over your life (see: Charlie Rangel). When you see that your government is performing that vital function, valuing it is a matter of justice. And a free society needs its citizens’ patriotism to protect all its citizens’ rights. In voting, in serving on ju-

ries, and in countless other ways, Americans are called upon to stand up for freedom. That means being prepared to say no to authority figures: to incumbent presidents who trample liberty, to prosecutors who accuse innocent people, to police officers who abuse suspects, to legislators who propose unjust laws, and so on. When neither you nor someone especially important to you is an obvious victim, it’s your patriotism, your liberty-lov-

ing patriotism, that tells you to stand up for the principles of freedom – because you count on those principles being upheld when it’s your freedom on the line. But if you accept Charlie Rangel’s kind of patriotism, the kind that salutes even when your own freedom is taken away, you give up the kind of patriotism that won’t let anyone’s rights be trampled if you can help it. Which kind of patriot do you want to be?

DAILY HOROSCOPES BY JACQUELINE BIGAR

night: Let others do all the talking.

BORN TODAY This year you often can be challenging or difficult. You have accepted so much responsibility that you could feel overburdened. Others see you as a role model -- that is, until you lose your temper. If you are single, you could push away a potential sweetie with your spontaneous outbursts. Find a different way of expressing your irritation. If you are attached, your sweetie won’t appreciate being a stand-in for someone else in your life with whom you might be angry. Listen carefully to his or her concerns, and you will feel better as a result.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) HHHHH Your day-to-day life could keep you busy. Today is a passage -nothing more, nothing less. Take a walk to relax. By late afternoon, someone will become much clearer, and a discussion will become possible. Tonight: Try out others’ ideas or suggestions.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) HHHH Most people go on a tirade every once in a while. Why would you be any different? Others might not know how to respond when you are like this. You’ll need to make the first move in order to clarify your actions. You will come up with the right approach. Tonight: At work late. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) HHHHH Plan on dealing with an irate associate in the near future. In the interim, stay on top of everything you must do. Don’t worry or let this situation mar your mood. A meeting provokes unusual ideas, which provide a new opportunity. Tonight: Why not enjoy yourself? GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) HHHH Your inclination to defer to someone else is the right move to make. Your ability to deal with an angry boss or superior will be tested. Know what is appropriate to do in this situation. Do not lose your sense of humor. To-

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) HHHH You know more than many about an evolving situation. Know that you won’t get clarity unless you stay focused on one issue at a time. Don’t try to multi-task. Someone’s difficult personality could evolve into a most intoxicating personality. Tonight: Try a stressbuster. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) HHH You could have difficulty with a child or loved one. This person seems to want a reason to get angry. You might want to ignore this situation until he or she has worked through it. Feelings run deep on both sides. Give impulsiveness a rest. Tonight: Use your imagination. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) HHHH Figure out where would be best to focus your high energy. Others might be touchy and feisty. You know how to handle this situation, but you’d prefer to pull back and not be involved. Late day plans could change at the last minute. Be flexible. Tonight: Head home and relax.

A&E ABBA, The Concert excites CAC 6

Tuesday March 5, 2013

by lacey palmer associate A&E editor

ABBA, The Concert took center stage at the Creative Arts Center Sunday evening, and the audience was treated to a nostalgia-inducing performance for the ages. Featuring Waterloo the band, ABBA, The Concert is a two-hour live musical tribute to the ‘70s Swedish band, ABBA. The members of Waterloo are also from Sweden, and they perform the concert around the world. When I heard ABBA, The Concert was coming to Morgantown, I was intrigued as a memory from my childhood came back: the seemingly endless car rides with my mother listening to the greatest hits of ABBA, her favorite band. Because of this experience, I knew I would be able to sing along at the concert – possibly involuntarily – to many of the band’s songs. My mom and I decided to go to the concert together, and ABBA, The Concert did that precious greatest hits CD justice. The group, who looked identical to the 1970s act, jumpsuits and hairstyles included, opened with an energetic number to get the crowd excited. “Sing along, dance along, strip naked – whatever you want,” said one of the male

leads. The group immediately began “Knowing Me, Knowing You,” an obvious crowd favorite by the loud singing heard throughout the Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre. This was the first of numerous times my mother told me they sounded eerily similar to ABBA themselves. The colored lights and disco-inspired costumes gave the entire performance a nostalgic feel, especially for the mostly middle-aged and older audience. Surprisingly enough, quite a few college-aged students were also in attendance Sunday evening and could be seen singing along on their feet at times. The female leads of the group showcased their vocals throughout the performance. In numbers such as “Chiquitita,” “One Man, One Woman” and “One of Us is Lying,” their tireless efforts to sound exactly like the original females were proven. Making the evening even more special for fans of ABBA, Mike Watson, the bassist in the original 1970s ABBA lineup, joined Waterloo the band at the CAC Sunday evening. Obviously older in comparison, Watson played the bass with enthusiasm and skill that would be difficult to match, regardless of age. One of the female leads informed the crowd the orig-

inal ABBA members’ first names were Anni-Frid, Bjorn, Benny and Agnetha, influencing the spelling of the band’s name. The group then got the crowd on their feet again with performances of ABBA favorites “Mamma Mia” and “S.O.S.” “Mamma Mia” was obviously the best-known song in the theatre, and it seemed nearly everyone was singing along and wiggling their fingers with the band. Watson then introduced the next song, “The Winner Takes It All,” which he claimed was his favorite ABBA song. This was one also my mom’s favorite, marked by her goose bumps and near tears. “They sound exactly like ABBA – exactly” she repeated throughout the concert. The group played “Lay All Your Love On Me” and “When All Is Said and Done” next, as the female leads changed into metallic, navy spandex with flowing, brightly colored tops. The performance focused the spotlight on the females, who showed off with choreographed moves and vocal performances that showcased their unique control. This number also featured numerous costume changes that showcased the kind of style that makes me wish I had lived in the ‘70s.

ABBA, The Concert performs in the Creative Arts Center Sunday night. Providing an expert’s insight, my mom also noted numerous times the outfits were exactly the same as the ones on her original CD cover. The male leads were humorous and witty throughout the concert. They played an integral role in making the crowd get on their feet, and they impressed everyone with their platform shoes, which they wore the entire show. Obviously knowledgeable in gauging their audience, the band got the crowd moving again with ABBA favorites such as “Fernando” and “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme.”

The show then ended with “Thank You for the Music” and the ever-catchy “Dancing Queen,” which brought the entire crowd to its feet. This number was so catchy and well-executed that it remained ingrained in my skull for hours after the concert was over. “Peace, love and ABBA,” one male lead said as the group left the stage. Many audience members agreed the show brought back memories. “I love ABBA,” said audience member Claudia Adorno. “I grew up with it, and my first concert ever was ABBA in Vancouver, Canada.”

Kristen Basham/THE DAILY ATHENAEUM

Adorno said she wasn’t expecting the female vocals to be as impressive or as similar to the original group’s as they were. “I wasn’t expecting too much – just to be able to sing along – but their voices were incredible,” Adorno said. “The nostalgia of all the songs and remembering the memories that came with those was really neat. Waterloo the band had incredibly large platform shoes to fill Sunday evening, and they did so marvelously, recreating a 1970s dance party with ABBA, The Concert. lacey.palmer@mail.wvu.edu

ON THE ROAD AGAIN Mountaineers look to shake off Baylor loss on the road vs. Texas by cody schuler managing editor

The West Virginia women’s basketball team will travel to Austin, Texas, tonight to take on the Longhorns in a contest that will serve as the team’s regular season finale. The Mountaineers (17-11, 9-8) narrowly defeated Texas in a Jan. 9 matchup in the Coliseum and will look to complete the season sweep tonight. It’s a game West Virginia head coach Mike Carey said his team needs to win. “Yesterday in practice, I told them we when we had six games left we had to win four out of the six, and we’ve won three of the five, so now we have to go finish,� Carey said. “We’re still on target where we thought we had to be, but we’re going to go play a Texas team that’s a very good basketball team. (They’re) playing a lot better right now, (have) a lot more confidence and we’re going to have to play well.� One advantage to this game is the Mountaineers have already faced Texas and aren’t dealing with the unknowns of facing an opponent for the

first time. The nature of the Big 12 schedule allows for each team to play each other twice, which Carey said makes the coaches and players both feel more comfortable. “We have learned what the Big 12 is about a little bit now. I think the different teams, seeing these teams for the second time, I think our players are more comfortable, and I know we are, as coaches, more comfortable with what we’re going to see,� he said. Redshirt senior center Ayana Dunning said Texas will provide a unique challenge because the game will also serve as the Longhorns’ senior night. “It’s Texas’ senior night. They’re going to play aggressive, (and) they’re going to play hard,� Dunning said. The game will have an impact on the Mountaineers’ seeding for the Big 12 Conference tournament – something Dunning said the team realizes is very important. “I don’t think anyone is taking this game lightly. I know coach Carey said a while back we have to win four out of our next six, so we’re three out of five so far, so this is a must win for us,� she said.

The Mountaineers will have the opportunity to bypass the opening round of the Big 12 conference tournament, which Dunning said is a welcoming notion and can help the Mountaineers in its quest for a conference title. “I also think having a bye is beneficial because we haven’t had one in the past (and) having to play so many games to get to the championship round. This way we already have a bye, and it’s less games for us to hopefully play in that championship game,� she said. Texas (11-17, 4-13) features two players who finish in double-figure scoring and are one of the conferences’ premier rebounding teams; the Longhorns outrebound opponents by an average margin of almost six rebounds per game. It’s a statistic Carey said he and the team plan to address. “They’re big. They’re the biggest team we’ve played all year,� he said. “They’re huge, and we’re going to have to be able to control the boards a little bit – at least be even with them.� charles.schuler@mail.wvu.edu

Allen Fieldhouse one of college basketball’s must-see venues nick arthur associate sports editor

Was it crazy? Yeah, probably. Cramming five friends in a car, driving 2,000 miles and nearly 30 hours over the course of four days doesn’t exactly sound appealing. But after opening the front doors of Allen Fieldhouse and taking a step inside, I knew it was worth every mile.

For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s some background information: Thursday night, myself and four other media members decided to drive to Lawrence, Kan., to watch West Virginia take on No. 6 Kansas Saturday afternoon. The Jayhawks are housed inside the most storied arena in college basketball, and it was a venue on all of our bucket lists. We arrived in Lawrence Friday afternoon and made our first trek through the

concourse of Allen Fieldhouse. We toured the arena home to Wilt Chamberlain’s jersey, the 2008 national championship trophy and a hall displaying information on the program’s 55 conference championships and 14 Final Four appearances. Behind a glass display, there were the 13 original rules of basketball written by former Kansas head coach James Naismith – the inventor of the sport. Only a couple hours had passed, and I was already blown away by the history

and rich tradition of the 58-year-old arena. When Saturday morning and gameday arrived, the experience became even more impressive. After walking by the thousands of fans lined up outside more than two and a half hours before tipoff, I took a seat at midcourt and marveled at my surroundings. I looked up at the banners decorating the rafters of the arena. I walked out onto the court from the perspective

of a visiting team, passing under the sign �Pay heed, all who enter: Beware of ‘The Phog’� (The Phog referencing former KU head coach Phog Allen, for whom the venue is named). Then the students, who were let in two hours before the game, sprinted in an attempt to secure seats as close to the action as possible. The general public followed, though at a much slower pace, and Allen Fieldhouse was filled by 16,300 screaming Kansas fans for the 196th consecu-

tive game. Before the Jayhawks starting lineup was introduced, a pregame video was shown. And not to take a poke a WVU, but it wasn’t exactly centered around the musical stylings of Sean Kingston. Clips of Naismith, Danny Manning, Wilt Chamberlain, Paul Pierce and many other storied alumni were shown. As an avid consumer of college basketball, goosebumps covered my arms and neck for the duration of

No. 1 Baylor not just Griner’s team by amit batra sports writer

The West Virginia women’s basketball team finished its regular season home schedule in heartbreak Saturday night when No. 1 Baylor cruised to a 31-point victory, 80-49. The headline of the memorable game, bringing a record 13,447 fans, was once again senior center Brittney Griner, but the Lady Bears’ balanced attack was the real story. The 6-foot-8 Griner took charge of the game early. Her triple-double of 28 points, 10 blocks and 10 rebounds allowed Baylor to cruise once it got past a small hurdle in the second half when WVU got within 8, 42-34. The senior’s tripledouble was the first of any WVU opponent at the Coliseum – men’s or women’s. “Teammates found me and got me the ball,” she said. “(I was) just playing hard, and teammates found me. They (WVU) don’t back down; they drive. They don’t change what they do. They bring it right in the lane, so I guess that’s where I got my blocks from.” The eye-opener Saturday night was seeing how balanced Baylor was. It wasn’t all Griner – even though she will get the headlines following such a game. In reality, however, the Lady Bears have a stacked roster. “I feel like sometimes I’m repeating myself, but this is not the Brittney Griner show,” said Baylor head coach Kim Mulkey. “I’ve got six McDonald’s All-Americans out there. I’ve got kids at every position that can play; they can score. They’re unselfish. They came to Baylor to play together. “They’ve wanted to win a championship. They’ve done that, and now the challenge for them is to try to win another one. They’re all very good players. Brittney gets

The West Virginia baseball team will play its first home game today at 3 p.m. against Eastern Kentucky. The Mountaineers have played all 10 of their games down south thus far, and today’s game marks the first of just seven home games in Morgantown. After tomorrow, the Mountaineers won’t return home until the end of the month, when students will be on spring break. The Mountaineers were in Myrtle Beach, S.C., this past weekend, where they lost two of their three games,

Baylor head coach Kim Mulkey looks on during her team’s victory against West Virginia Saturday. Dating back to the 2011 NCAA tournament, the No. 1 Bears have won 68 of their last 70 games. a lot of the attention. She should. If you look down the stat sheet, they all score. I think tonight from the tip, we guarded West Virginia.” Mulkey praised West Virginia’s defense and the fact Baylor is more known for its offensive game, but defensively, it is right there with the likes of WVU. “We gave them some open looks; we got confused a little on some switches, but every time an opponent shoots, we put a hand in their face. We play as tough, hard-nosed defense as West Virginia does,” she said. For Mulkey, it’s not all about the undefeated winning streaks in the confer-

ence, the consecutive home games won or any of those records; it’s all about winning and focusing on the biggest prize in women’s collegiate basketball. “I’ve never been a coach that talked about streaks,” she said. “This team feels no pressure to repeat as a national champion. If I think they did, they wouldn’t be able to perform. This team has a personality that knows we’re good. We’re going to give you our best shot, and if you beat us, you’re going to have deserved it. And that’s what I get to coach every day. “We count down the games. We do that. We know

we have one more conference game, and then we have three in the (Big 12) Tournament, and then we have the biggest six of the whole year coming up in the NCAA Tournament. The National Championship is what’s important.” While it was a great opportunity for West Virginia, Baylor was just too strong when it was all said and done. For those other 63 teams in the NCAA Tournament, knocking off top-ranked Baylor will be the ultimate challenge with this balanced roster. dasports@mail.wvu.edu

dropping their overall record to 4-6. “The thing we do the best is compete, and we’re always going to compete,” said head coach Randy Mazey. “I never doubt this team’s effort; we just had some breaks.” In their lone win, starting pitcher John Means pitched seven shutout innings en route to a 4-0 victory over UMBC. Relief pitcher Corey Holmes pitched two nohit innings, striking out two and walking one. Three of WVU’s four runs came with two outs in the inning. Friday afternoon, the Mountaineers fell to the Indiana Hoosiers 8-5. Junior

left fielder Jacob Rice continued to be a dominant force at the plate, batting 4-5 with 2 RBIs. He has four hits in two games so far this season. Rice currently has the third-highest batting average in the Big 12 Conference, hitting an impressive .474 from the plate, with 18 hits and eight RBIs. Additionally, WVU sophomore Bobby Boyd is hitting .390 from the plate, which is good enough for ninth-best in the conference. Despite the Mountaineers’ 4-6 record, offense hasn’t been an issue. The team batting average of .304 is good enough for fourthbest in the Big 12. How-

ever, pitching struggles have caused the defense to give up nearly five runs per game – second-to-worst in the conference. Eastern Kentucky, which lost to No. 11 Kentucky last week, will enter the game with a 3-4 record. Bad weather caused the Colonels to cancel a three-game homestand against Indiana State this past weekend. Live stats can be found at WVUsports.com. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for seniors. Kids 18 and younger, as well as WVU students with a valid student ID will be admitted for free. dasports@mail.wvu.edu

Burnett shines at Big 12 championships By connor murray sports writer

In its first ever Big 12 championship meet, the West Virginia swimming and diving teams put on a strong showing. The men’s team finished third behind TCU and Texas while the women took second place, finishing behind Texas. Several standout individual performances contributed to the Mountaineers’ strong showing in Austin, Texas, including that of senior Rachael Burnett. Burnett was named the Big 12’s Most Outstanding Swimmer for her performance. She won the 200-meter freestyle with a time of 1:45.22, the 500-meter freestyle with a 4:38.40 and the 1650-meter freestyle with a

16:04.26. Her time in the 500 free was good enough to break Texas A&M swimmer Cammile Adams’ Big 12 record in the event, giving WVU its first win of the meet. This marked the third time in her career Burnett has received the conference’s Most Outstanding Swimmer award, as she won the same award the previous two years at the Big East Championships. Senior Mandie Nugent took home a championship of her own. She finished in first place in the 200 fly with a time of 1:55.82. Sophomore Julie Ogden finished just behind Nugent in the 200 fly with a second-place finish in a time of 1:58.71. The West Virginia men held a lead after the first day

of competition but were not able to hold the lead during day two. The men’s 400 relay team of sophomore Julien Vialette, freshman Andrew Marsh, sophomore Nathan Cobbe and freshman Ross Glegg took second place in the event with a time of 2:56.94. Sophomore Christopher Brill posted a time of 2:00.14 in the 200 breast, which was good enough for a secondplace finish. Freshmen Christian Parker and Ibrahim Ismail took fourth and seventh for the men’s divers with scores of 201.30 and 184.45. While the Mountaineers put together a good showing in their first ever Big 12 championships, the hosts of the event flexed their muscles throughout the competition.

Texas swept the competition with wins on the men’s and women’s side as well as every individual honor available to the men. Senior Dax Hill took home the outstanding swimmer of the meet, freshman Cory Bowersox claimed the outstanding diver of the meet, Texas coach Eddie Reese was awarded the swim coach of the meet and Matt Scoggin won diving coach of the meet for his efforts with the Longhorn divers. The Mountaineer divers will be off until the NCAA Diving Zone championships March 15-17 while the women’s swimmers will head to the NCAA championships from March 21-23, and the men will attend the same event March 28-30.

the Mountaineers on the court, and all in attendance stayed until the end, while the echoes of the “Rock Chalk, Jayhawk ... KU” chant reverberated off the ceiling of the Phog. It is more than just basketball in Lawrence, Kan.; it’s a way of life. For Jayhawk fans, a Satur-

day is completely centered around Kansas basketball. You go early, you stay late and you stand and cheer on your hometown team for an entire 40 minutes ... No matter the score. Driving halfway across the country to see a basketball team run away with a 91-65 win may not sound

like something you have to experience. But if that drive takes you to Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, it will be worth every second. Add a Kansas home basketball game to your bucket list if you haven’t already.

MEN’s basketball

Self sees Kansas hitting stride at right time by michael carvelli sports editor

The old saying goes that you want your team playing at its best when March rolls around. And on the second day of March, Kansas head coach Bill Self saw his No. 6 Jayhawks play one of their better games of the season in a 26-point rout of West Virginia. After struggling to come away with a 5-point win a few weeks ago in Morgantown, everyone did their part for the Jayhawks to pave the way to a 91-65 victory. “I think we’re playing a lot better. We seem to be playing with more confidence,” Self said. “It’s amazing what winning a couple of tough road games where it could have gone either way could do for a team’s confidence. “Our guys seem to be more confident right now playing … I don’t know if we can sustain it over a fiveweek period or something like that, but it feels good to make shots, and we’ve been a team that hasn’t consistently made shots, so that was nice to see.” Since losing three in a row at the beginning of February, Kansas has been on a roll, winning six straight games and climbing back into a tie for first place in the Big 12 Conference standings with No. 13 Kansas State. And the Jayhawks have been able to find that recent success in a lot of different ways. Saturday’s win against West Virginia was just an example of how dynamic they can be, as the Jayhawks found ways to score with a wide variety of players and styles. Of course Ben McLemore lit up the Mountaineer defense, scoring 36 points on just 15 shot attempts, and senior Eli-

jah Johnson followed up a 39-point performance against Iowa State with 12 points and 10 assists. But Kansas was really able to flex its muscles and pull away in the second half because of its ability to get out in transition and score points on fast breaks. Self said it showed flashes of another Jayhawk team on Saturday – the 2008 team that beat Memphis to win a national championship. “I saw it today,” Self said. “I hadn’t seen it much up until today … A lot of it depends on how the defense is playing. You can’t throw lobs if it’s guarded a certain way, and we were fortunate enough today to have some two-onones, where in the past games, we haven’t had as many. “When the other team sends four guys to the glass, and you get the board, you’ll have a lot of opportunities to run.” For the Mountaineers, head coach Bob Huggins said that his team just ran into a better team Saturday. And his team picked a bad day to play one of its worst games of this disappointing season. “We’re not good enough to get down by 10 or 12 or 14 to a team as good as they are and be able to come back,” Huggins said. “We don’t have enough offensive firepower. “We’ve got to keep the game in reach, and it’s hard to do that whenever you’re making unforced errors … That’s our team. We’re not good enough to be able to do that against a team that’s as good and well-coached and experienced as what Kansas is.” james.carvelli@mail.wvu.edu
