Drug arrests: A wake-up call Recent arrests at The University of Alabama recall the consequences of illegal drug use on college campuses. BY HAWLEY MARTIN email@example.com
Sixty-one students at the University of Alabama were arrested for drug-related charges, reminding their peers of the consequences that follow drug usage. On Feb. 19, the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force
concluded an investigation that led to the arrests, 13 of which were charged for crimes other than possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and drug paraphernalia, according to a copy of the list of the arrests available on the online edition of the UA student newspaper, The
Crimson White. The magnitude of the situation and the charges pending against the students leaves Tray Smith, a senior columnist for The Crimson White, with questions concerning the legitimacy of the round-up. “It’s surprising because UA See DRUGS, PAGE 3

It’s pretty clear that SEC coaches do not like Marshall Henderson. This past week Henderson, along with Murphy Holloway, was snubbed from being an AllSEC first team selection. I would like to present an argument as to why my fellow Rebel, Mr. Marshall Henderson, should have been selected. Since the 2001-02 season, every leading scorer of the SEC was selected to be on the first team.

John Jenkins (back-to-back leading scorer) all led the SEC in scoring and secured a place on the first team. The first leading scorer in over 10 years to not garner AllSEC first team selection was our very own Marshall Henderson. Although the aforementioned reference only suggests a correlation between leading the SEC in scoring and selection to the All-SEC first team, I still find it compelling. Now let’s compare Marshall’s resume to those who were selected this year. First, let’s look at Alabama’s Trevor Releford. He averaged 15.4 points per game, 2.5 rebounds per game and 2.6 assists per game. Statistically speaking, Marshall scores almost 5 whole points more than Releford, and he averages a half a rebound more than Releford. Trevor wins the assists comparison between the two by one assist (2.6

to 1.7). Oh, and Releford’s team is playing in the NIT, while Marshall’s team is the SEC Champion and the 12th seed in the NCAA Tournament. Next, let’s look at Tennessee’s Jordan McRae. He averaged 16.0 points per game, 4.1, rebounds per game and 1.9 assists per game. Marshall scored four more points than McRae, but McRae out-rebounded Marshall by one rebound and slightly averaged more assists than Marshall (.2 difference — 1.9 to 1.7). And like Releford, McRae’s team is playing in the NIT. The other three guards who were selected over Henderson, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (SEC Player of the Year), Phil Pressey and Elston Turner Jr., beat Marshall Henderson outright for their spots, in my opinion. But what does Marshall have to say about all of this? After

the SEC Championship game, he said, “I guess that’s a shot at all the other coaches out here. They’re losers. They didn’t win this tournament, we did.” Henderson was named the MVP of the SEC Tournament. Not Trevor Releford, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Phil Pressey, Jordan McRae, Elston Turner Jr. or any of Kentucky’s young stars — Marshall Henderson was the MVP. Although it is unfortunate that Henderson was not selected for the All-SEC first team, he still has an opportunity to “get this money” by making an even bigger name for himself at the Big Dance. Marshall Henderson is the hottest name in college basketball and he deserves to be. Keep shooting, Marshall. Keep shooting. Hotty Toddy! Tim Abram is a public policy junior from Horn Lake.

has its own judicial system that handles routine drug violations in dorms,” Smith said. “And so there’s a question of, could (the university’s judicial system) have been a more effective way to deal with this than this huge raid that has brought all this negative attention and really negatively impacted the lives of a lot of students?” Similarly, Smith questions how the arrests will affect recruitment efforts. “If your parents at home who are reading about this type of thing in the paper and the university is trying to get their children to come here for their education, it becomes a much tougher sell with the parents, I think,” he said. UA Director of Media Relations Cathy Andreen said the university is working to move forward. “Students must understand that they have a choice when it comes to their behavior, and that their decision to violate drug laws and the Code of Student Conduct will have consequences,” she said. Ray Hawkins, assistant police chief of The University of Mississippi’s University Police Department, said he has never seen an operation including so many students, but that the round-up at UA is not unusual for any jurisdiction. “I think that’s the thing about the Alabama situation – is that there were so many students involved,” he said. “That gets everybody’s attention, but the practice of conducting a round-up, that’s pretty much run of the mill.” Hawkins said Lafayette County has its own unit similar to the West Alabama Nar-

cotics Task Force called the Lafayette County Metro Narcotics Unit, or Metro. Comprised of officers from UPD, the Oxford Police Department and Lafayette County, Metro works to resolve drug cases and conducts routine round-ups. UPD rarely makes any felony drug arrests, according to Hawkins. He said UPD would normally call Metro in to deal with drug activity on a felony scale. Hawkins said marijuana is not a targeted criminal activity on campus, but UPD officers are vigilant when they patrol Ole Miss. He said they have the same attitude of making a marijuana arrest as they would any other criminal activity. “Drug usage tends to run in cycles,” Hawkins said. “Some years we make a lot of drug arrests, and some years there are fewer drug arrests.
“There are some kids who come from high school who have already experimented with drugs, and there are some kids who, it’s their first time on a college campus and have not had any exposure to drugs; the trends tend to change from year to year.” Hawkins said UPD hopes to educate Ole Miss students in order to empower them to make sound decisions. “Our philosophy has been education before enforcement,” he said. Hawkins cited the training offered to campus safety officers and security personnel who patrol residence halls from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. as an opportunity for members of the Ole Miss community to become proactive. UPD hosts seminars once a year to promote drug prevention efforts through these officers.
The University of Mississippi’s Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies will begin its 13th annual student-led Gender Conference today. Centered around the theme of “Mind/Body/Spirit,” the conference will feature a keynote presentation by performance artist Kari Tauring. Tauring will present “Mind, Body, Spirit: Returning to the Un-gendered Whole in Norse Tradition” to begin the presentation of student-authored papers. The conference is open to all undergraduate and graduate students and will run through Wednesday in the Center for Manufacturing Excellence Boardroom.

this cloud nine and refocus on a very difficult challenge Friday.” In place of Summers, freshman guard Derrick Millinghaus played 22 minutes and scored 11 points, including the game-winner, in a 64-62 win against Missouri. He started both games against Vanderbilt and Florida, while White played big minutes for Ole Miss off the bench. Against Florida, White scored just two points, but grabbed nine rebounds and dished out four assists compared to only one turnover. Summers’ status for Friday’s game against Wisconsin remains uncertain. “We don’t know yet,” Kennedy said of Summers. “He was obviously not available throughout the tournament. He will continue to go through the concussion testing, and once the doctors give me a thumbsup, we will move forward.” For continuing coverage of Ole Miss men’s basketball, follow @ austinkmiller and @thedm_sports on Twitter. $BARTENDING$ $250/ Day Potential No Experience Necessary.

After winning the Southeastern Conference tournament with its third win in three days, a 66-63 win against Florida, Ole Miss is in the NCAA Tournament for the seventh time in its program history. The Rebels are in the Big Dance for the first time since 2002 and the first time under head coach Andy Kennedy. The No. 12 seed in the NCAA West Regional, Ole Miss (26-8) will face Wisconsin (23-11) in the second round on Friday. Tipoff from the Sprint Center in Kansas City is set for 11:40 a.m. and will be televised on TruTV. “I’m excited about the opportunity to participate in the NCAA Tournament,” Kennedy said during Monday’s SEC weekly teleconference. “I’m really excited about what our guys were able to accomplish over the weekend and looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.” The Badgers, ranked No. 18 in the Associated Press poll, tied for third in the Big Ten regular season standings with a 12-6 conference record. Wisconsin lost to Ohio State in Sunday’s Big Ten championship game after wins against Michigan and Indiana. ‘Contrasting as night is to day’ Wisconsin ranks 10th nationally in scoring defense (55.9 ppg), but ranks 219th nationally in scoring offense (65.5 ppg), compared to Ole Miss, which

This is due in part to the two teams’ styles of play, which Kennedy described as “contrasting as night is to day.” Ole Miss ranks 12th nationally with 70.8 combined (offensive and defensive) possessions per game, while Wisconsin ranks 310th with 62.0 possessions per game, according to Ken Pomeroy. “They’re a team that is ballcontrolling, physical, great passing team, similar in some regards to Florida,” Kennedy said. “They have great ball movement, great player movement, very similar to the Gators. It’s going to be a huge chalSee BASKETBALL, PAGE 7
