State proposes education center By Kelly Gonsalves
the daily northwestern @kellyagonsalves
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources formally introduced its intentions to use the Harley Clarke Mansion as an office space and public coastal education center to Evanston residents Wednesday night. After months of controversy over the future use of the historical lakefront property, 2603 Sheridan Road, the department officially tossed its hat in the ring for tenancy on Oct. 18. A federally funded organization, the IDNR hopes to use the space as a base to conduct several statewide programs aimed at protecting the coast and natural resources, as well as a learning and information center for adults and children. “The idea of actually having some type of hands-on, wet classroom that kids could come out and learn about the interaction of the land and the water ... That would be a really great opportunity,” said Diane Tecic, the department’s coastal program manager. “It’s something that we would want to consider.” Tecic also mentioned possible public
meeting spaces and wildlife information centers for hunters, fishers and boaters. The IDNR could also maintain coastal habitats in Evanston itself and possibly host eco-tours, Tecic said. Tecic and other representatives gave detailed summaries of the department’s various eco-conscious programs but specified all proposed plans for the mansion are merely preliminary until the city confirms the offer. The future of the Harley Clarke Mansion became a citywide concern after news broke Evanston billionaire Jennifer Pritzker planned to purchase and convert the space into a boutique hotel. Residents aggressively protested the plan, concerned with losing public access to the park and beach property. The IDNR’s proposal comes in direct conflict with the building’s current tenant, the Evanston Art Center, which has also expressed interest in remaining on the property permanently. The center has been renting the property for $1 a year since 2010, a symbolic gesture of the city’s support for the organization. “The Evanston Art Center still has » See HARLEY Clarke, page 6

SLAM DUNK What is now the south counter of Frontera Fresco at Norris University Center will soon become Dunkin’ Donuts. Kelly Schaefer, Norris executive director, announced the news at Associated Student Government’s second Senate meeting of the year Wednesday night.
Dunkin’ Donuts confirmed By Rebecca Savransky
the daily northwestern @beccasavransky
Dunkin’ Donuts will replace Frontera Fresco’s frozen yogurt station this spring, Norris University Center Executive Director Kelly Schaefer confirmed at Associated Student Government’s weekly Senate meeting Wednesday. After receiving feedback from students and the Norris Center Advisory Board, administrators concluded Dunkin’ Donuts would be a positive addition to Norris. “The endcap at Frontera was supposed to be a different kind of coffee location,” said Dr. Julie Payne-Kirchmeier, assistant vice president for student auxiliary services. “Students aren’t responding to it like we thought they would. People saw it as comparable to Starbucks, and that’s not what they wanted. They wanted something like Dunkin’.” Multiple senators clapped and cheered at the Dunkin’ Donuts announcement. Schaefer also asked Senate for feedback about the Norris dining options added this year, including Subway and the new-
IFC sees new member increase By Annie Bruce
daily senior staffer @anniefb13
Despite a shortened recruitment schedule due to weather, the Interfraternity Council saw an increase in new members, with 370 students accepting bids. Last year, 348 students joined fraternities, according to numbers provided by IFC last year. Sorority recruitment wrapped up on Tuesday night, but the Panhellenic Association would not comment on this year’s recruitment process. Will Ritter, vice president for recruitment for IFC, said he expects numbers to rise over the next few days and weeks, as three chapters continue to recruit and others wait on outstanding bids. Sigma Nu participated in formal winter recruitment for the first time this year and had 25 pledges, which was more than Recruitment Chairman Daniel Weinberg was expecting. “It’s hard to get your name into the

look Starbucks. Students offered numerous concerns with the updated dining options, including long wait lines at Subway during dinner hours and reduced late-night food options. ASG President Ani Ajith said he appreciated the effort administrators put in to implement student feedback. “We’re constantly talking with them about different changes and giving input along the way,” Ajith, a Weinberg senior and former Daily staffer, told The Daily. Schaefer said Norris is constantly aiming to update the food options, adding that administrators are collecting student opinions to best serve the community. “We’ve done two national surveys,” Schaefer said. “We’ve done campus surveys. Variety, cost effectiveness and branding are the top three things students are asking for.” Payne-Kirchmeier and SafeRide coordinator Bernard Foster also announced a new SafeRide mobile application, which was created in an attempt to eliminate long wait times with a more efficient tracking application. Called TapRide, the new application aims to boost ridership, save money and yield more data in order to give the
New light shed on severity of Davis Street fire
The fire that destroyed three Davis Street businesses in December took over one million gallons of water, multiple fire departments and five hours of continuous work to contain and eliminate. The fire could have been much worse, Evanston fire department Chief Greg Klaiber explained during City Council on Monday. Klaiber discussed the severity of the fire and the intense work required of firefighters and other city departments to manage it. The fire started at Pine Yard Restaurant, 1033 Davis St., on Dec. 29 just after 2 a.m. and spread to nearby TechniColour Nail & Day Spa, 1031 Davis St. and Taco Diablo, 1029 Davis St. All three businesses were destroyed and demolition began Monday on the buildings’ charred remains. Klaiber presented a detailed account of the progress, including footage from the scene. When firefighters first arrived on the scene, they cut an inspection hole

Users will be able to set a pickup and dropoff location and indicate the number of passengers on a smartphone. The app will give the estimated time of arrival and will alert the passenger when the SafeRide has arrived. “The big takeaway here are we want to make sure we’re honoring what the students have requested for us to do in previous Senate and continuing to move forward,” Payne-Kirchmeier said. “We want to be innovative. We want to be practical.” Later, Senate discussed and voted on the new election commission for the spring presidential elections. Seven students were elected to the commission. Senators also voted to allocate $200 from the ASG Project Pool to the keynote speaker for Body Acceptance Week, Lisa Lee.

in the roof of Pine Yard and discovered flames in the wood truss construction of the building. “Wood truss construction is our most dangerous type of fire,” Klaiber said. A fire wall protected Wheel & Sprocket, 1027 Davis St., and the firefighters’ work prevented the fire from spreading to the bike store and many more properties along Davis Street, Klaiber said. It took all of the fire department’s resources to combat the fire in addition to five outside communities’ assistance, Klaiber said. Klaiber also explained that the weather conditions on the morning of Dec. 29 prevented the fire from spreading east down Davis Street. “If we had a wind blowing fire, it could have gone all the way to Maple,” he said. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, although it definitely originated from the kitchen of Pine Yard. Investigators are examining pieces of kitchen equipment in a controlled environment for clues as to the origin of the fire, Klaiber said. — Ciara McCarthy

Grill opens in old Starbucks spot Mediterranean restaurant brings natural meat, local produce to downtown By BAILEY WILLIAMS
the daily northwestern @news_BaileyW
Everything is fresh in the new restaurant Olive Mediterranean Grill, which opened in Evanston on Friday. “Our business is growing everyday,” owner Irfan Zia said, explaining how the grill has been doing well since opening at the old downtown Starbuck’s cafe, 1726 Sherman Ave. From using fresh ingredients to baking their own bread, Zia said the restaurant offers a healthy alternative that encourages good eating habits. The eatery tries to use natural meat, local produce and fine ingredients. Even the furniture is made of natural wood, Zia said. Olive Mediterranean Grill has two other locations in Chicago. All have the same menu and prices, Zia said. The Evanston restaurant,
however, is bigger, greener and more sophisticated, Zia said. Evanston’s grill also has different hours — everyday from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., according to its website. With menu options ranging from soups to sandwiches, the grill offers variety at less than $9 an item. The OMG plate, which Zia said is the most popular menu item, sells for $8. Chain founder Faisal Ghani is an Evanston resident, which is part of the reason why the grill opened its third store. The city is a “great community” with Northwestern nearby, Zia said. Mary Sherref, an employee at the Evanston restaurant, shared her experiences on how fast the business has grown with little marketing. Sherref said customers were “very forthcoming,” stopping before they left to express their satisfaction with the food. A group of Evanston police officers came in one day, only to return the next, she said. After her first visit to the restaurant, Weinberg junior Rachel Gladney said what she ordered could have been better with a different sauce. “I might come back to try the steak and the Bastami rice,” she said.

Officers arrested a Chicago man Wednesday morning after they stopped him for a traffic violation and found six grams of cannabis on his person, police said. The man, 62, was pulled over after 1 a.m. Wednesday in the 1100 block of Howard Street for a traffic violation. Officers found the cannabis on him during a search, Parrott said. The man is scheduled to appear in court March 14.
Teens rob man, 74, at gunpoint, return goods shortly after
Two teenagers robbed a 74-year-old man at gunpoint Tuesday in south Evanston and returned the stolen goods minutes after demanding them. The teens approached the Evanston resident at 9:45 p.m. after he parked his car in the 400 block of Callan Avenue and began walking toward his residence. They approached him, and one teen displayed a grey and green handgun with a red tip, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

It is unclear if the gun was real, he added. The teens demanded the man’s belongings, and he gave them $7 and his cell phone. The teens then patted the man down to make sure he had no other belongings on his body, Parrott said. One teenager returned the cash to the man. The Evanston resident asked for his phone, and the teen returned that as well. Both fled the scene on foot. — Ciara McCarthy

CNN editor’s project addresses modern-day slavery By JONATHAN LI
the daily northwestern
Leif Coorlim, an award-winning journalist and executive editor of the CNN Freedom Project, spoke Wednesday about the need to raise awareness about modern-day slavery around the world. “We have more stories than we can tell,” he said. About 50 people attended the event in Harris Hall, which was hosted by Fight for Freedom. Now in its third year, the Freedom Project includes more than 300 stories to date and has led to the rescue of over 1,000 previously enslaved people. Coorlim said he never imagined the impact the project would bring to viewers. When he first started the project, he worried it would run out of stories. However, the project touched so many people that viewers began to reach out to the project’s leaders with cases that they had heard of. Coorlim said the project has helped educate people not just about the existence of human trafficking but also about misconceptions people have about it. Coorlim argued traffickers sometimes resort to slavery not because they want to but because they have to.
NU starts emergency response initiative
A new community safety initiative will train volunteers to serve on an emergency response team, Northwestern announced Tuesday. NU will join a national emergency preparedness program called the Community Emergency Response Team. Volunteers will be trained in a wide range of topics including fire suppression, disaster drills and search and rescue operations. Training for the program requires 16 hours of

SHARING STORIES CNN Freedom Project executive editor Leif Coorlim chats with Northwestern students before his talk at Harris Hall on Wednesday night. Coorlim spoke on how the project’s aim to bring awareness to modern-day slavery.
“Not all human traffickers are evil people. Some of them are just trying to survive,” he said. “A lot of people villainize the traffickers or slave owners, but in some cases these plantation owners are just as poor as (the slaves) are.”
Coorlim said two million children are enslaved in Ghana and Cambodia, and the majority of them work in brothels. In fact, Coorlim said, it was a girl named Na working in a Cambodian brothel who first inspired the project.
instruction and is taught by first responders and emergency management professionals. Joseph Frascati, emergency preparedness manager for University Police, said in a news release CERT programs are being developed worldwide in an effort to increase emergency preparedness. “CERT programs operate within the community like good Samaritans to provide support to first responders,” Frascati said. “A CERT program is not intended to replace Northwestern University’s response capabilities but rather to serve as an important supplement to them.” The initial class will be limited to 20 students.
Any NU student, staff or faculty member can apply. UP Deputy Chief Dan McAleer said CERT members will help with tasks that don’t necessarily need a trained police officer or firefighter. “We hope to be able to utilize those trained CERT team members to help us with community events and any kind of disasters that may occur that we may need additional staffing to help bring about recovery for that particular instance or disaster,” he said. McAleer said the class will begin April 3 and meet four times for four hours each.
Na had told him about a hotel where teens were forced to work in brothels. When he and another reporter presented the evidence to the police to start a raid, the police called the raid off the next day, saying Na’s papers proved she was of age. “When I came back to CNN, the story... enraged a lot of the editorial staff,” he said. “They couldn’t believe this stuff was going on.” Coorlim said that first experience made him realize they had the ability to give a voice to people who can’t speak for themselves. ”But by that time I realized we could do this in every country. We could do this every week,” he said. “This is going on all over the place.” Medill senior Eric Feldman said he attended the event because he wanted to learn how Coorlim tackled important stories. “It was most interesting to hear how CNN took a stance with the Freedom Project,” he said. Weinberg senior Judith Kim, Fight for Freedom’s president and founder, said it was incredible that a leading news agency would have a separate project dedicated to human trafficking. “It says a lot when a leader in the news agency makes a clear decision,” she said. firstname.lastname@example.org The team stemmed out of a partnership between the Emergency Services Division of University Police and Evanston Fire & Life Safety Services and is run under the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Homeland Security’s Citizen Corps Council. Since its development by the Los Angeles City Fire Department in 1985, the program has been expanded to include education on a wider array of disaster response.

Clark the Cub a welcome addition to Wrigley Field bob hayes
I go to a baseball game to watch the game. I go to a baseball game to scream as the new speedy prospect steals his first base, to hear the roar of the crowd when an aging veteran shows he can still hit one out of the yard, to see unhittable aces throw darts by helpless hitters and to smell the ballpark hot dogs on the grill. In my 18 years of developing into a diehard sports fan, the number one catalyst for my emotional attachment to the games that I love has been watching my favorite team play at Wrigley Field. I firmly believe there is no more authentic stadium experience in American professional sports than within the Friendly Confines on the corner of Clark and Addison. At Wrigley, there are no gimmicks, just the ivycolored walls, the summer sun and the crack of a wooden bat. I know thousands of fans have been raised on pure Chicago Cubs baseball at Wrigley Field, which is why many were outraged when on Monday the Cubs unveiled a brand new mascot: Clark. A Photoshop-and-insult-heavy frenzy exploded on social media outlets, causing the Cubs to come out with a statement expressing the team’s surprise at the backlash. Fans seem to be thinking an innocent young bear outfitted in Cubs baseball attire is going to ruin their unadulterated baseball experience.
The truth is, for us fans who grew up with the Cubs, nothing will change. I wrote a column in the fall discussing the undeserved criticism that new sports nicknames receive. In that column, I touched upon the purpose of mascots and why it is never really fair to make fun of new mascots. The point is that no matter how good – I’ll get to defining “good” in a minute – a new mascot may be, it will always receive criticism from the big sports fans. Quite simply, mascots always look grotesque. When a new monster-animal-human hybrid is unveiled that we are not used to seeing dance around a stadium, it is almost impossible for fans not to make fun of it. As I mentioned in my previous column, Chicago fans absolutely love Benny the Bull – new fans, Jordan-era fans, nearly everybody. But you’re going to tell me that if a furry red bull in a Bulls jersey were presented for the first time today, would it not receive endless criticism? Michael Jordan and six championships would be insulted! Yet, of course, everyone now loves Benny because we are used to seeing him every time we go to the United Center. The problem is that we are not used to seeing Clark give high-fives to children on the Wrigley Field concourse, so people assume that means our pure Wrigley experience will be forever tarnished. Clark’s introduction came at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in order “to help reinforce positive activities being taught to children with autism and other developmental challenges,” according to the Cubs’ website.
He and a few minor leaguers spent time giving Cubs gifts to autistic children and took pictures with them. While his duties going forward have

yet to be announced, we can assume that children would prefer to be visited and entertained by a friendly mascot than by a collection of anonymous minor leaguers. Clark was not created to distract old season ticket holders from keeping the score of every pitch. The Cubs introduced him to keep
the young children – those who do not quite understand baseball and are not yet enthralled in the game – entertained while at the game and more importantly, to encourage them to come back. Both at Wrigley and around Chicago, Clark exists to provide an entertaining personification of Cubs baseball for the younger audience. A survey conducted by the Cubs and Northwestern revealed that among fans, “there was a desire for the 100-year-old park to be more ‘family-friendly,’” according to an article on ESPNChicago.com. If he makes people happy, brings them to the ballpark and brings joy to people in a children’s hospital, he has succeeded as a mascot. Diehards are acting as if Clark tarnishes the sanctity of the Cubs franchise. They ask, “How can he destroy over a century of tradition?” Yet, many are forgetting that even the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals – two extremely well-respected and traditional franchises – have had popular mascots for years. It is possible that Clark is what the Cubs need to ring in a new generation of fans since the old crack of the bat seems to no longer be enough. Either way, diehards will still keep score, the aroma of the hot dogs will still emanate from the grill, the summer sun will still shine on the bleachers, the Ivy will still grow. And the Cubs will still lose 90 games. Bob Hayes is a Weinberg freshman. He can be reached at email@example.com.

Sleep deprivation deserves more student attention MATT GATES
Although the National Sleep Foundation recommends seven to nine hours, most NU students get much less. Walk down Sheridan Road on a Monday morning and you will see droves of Northwestern students rushing to class, coffee mugs in hand, eyes tired from a night of poring over textbooks. It’s become normal for students to spend their mornings chugging coffee and bragging about how little sleep they got the night before. At my high school, things weren’t much different — busy students also slept little. However, we were aware of the effects this
The Drawing Board
had on our bodies and accepted this state only occasionally and begrudgingly. In college, it becomes accepted that we will deprive ourselves of sleep in order to keep up with work. Students should be aware of how lack of sleep affects their bodies, minds and lives. According to the National Sleep Foundation, people who are more than 17 years old generally need seven to nine hours of sleep a night. How many of us can say we regularly achieve this goal? It is understandable that college students will sometimes be short on sleep given our variety of commitments: class, homework, extracurricular activities and possibly even a job. However, it is concerning to see how frequently students at NU and other schools deprive themselves of sleep. Staying up late to work on a paper or studying for an exam may boost a student’s performance in the short term. However, a cycle of sleep deprivation generally becomes counter-productive. One study found that losing an hour of sleep caused students to perform at the level of students two years
behind them. If you were a higher school senior in calculus, would you want to be moved to Algebra II? But that’s exactly what you’re signing up for when you don’t sleep enough. Sleep that occurs It is early in the night and understandable the dream sleep later on help the brain that college process and learnstudents will ing new information. Students who stay up sometimes late to finish work be short on deprive themselves of the chance to fully sleep given new our variety of comprehend material. This results commitments. in a vicious cycle of sleep deprivation and cramming. Lack of sleep has also been linked to lower T-cell counts, leaving someone with a weaker immune system and higher risk of getting the cold and flu. Everyone hates getting sick,
and college students find it infuriating to miss class or get behind on work. Staying up late cramming for a test might get a student a higher grade but is not worth the academic costs of a week of illness. For college students with cars, sleep deprivation carries even more risks. Driving while tired doubles the risk of an accident — as severe a risk as driving drunk, a study found. Although it is difficult to tell how tired a driver in an accident was, drowsy driving is still known to cause many accidents each year. Forty thousand injuries and 1,550 deaths are attributed to drowsy driving each year. As college students, we know that we are going to have to push ourselves to achieve our potential. However, doing our best requires us to get those seven to nine hours, at least as often as we can. Matt Gates is a Weinberg freshman. He can be reached at email@example.com.

With polar vorN texes and A LEO chilling winds, D N it can A IR be difficult to deal with the frigid BY M and desolate days of January in Chicago. One method for overcoming winter’s oppression is to celebrate light and its encouraging connotations amid this dark time. The work of internationally-acclaimed Italian artist Marco Rotelli does just this. Now, Rotelli is bringing his artistic talent to Northwest-

er t n i w of d a e d n the
ern’s campus. All week, Rotelli has been projecting light against the facade of Deering Library from 5 to 9 p.m. in a show named after a Dylan Thomas quote, “Rage, Rage Against the Dying of the Light.” Rotelli is no stranger to NU. About a year ago, while fulfilling a residency at NU’s Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, Rotelli became inspired by the campus. “When I was at Northwestern University, I felt the messages of the light from the lake,” Rotelli said. “The light, the change in every moment — this is my inspiration.” In March, Rotelli shared his talent with the NU community for the first time. He created a project called
“WORDS” to illuminate Deering Library because he said he enjoys, “buildings with a message.” “It was a wonderful, wonderful event, and everybody who saw it was excited and inspired and moved,” said Jeffrey Garrett, associate university librarian and director of special collections and archives. “We decided that since only a very lucky few were able to participate, we would do a new illumination for an entire week. We would do it not in March, when things are starting to get light and hopeful again, but in the darkest part of winter, which is now.” Garrett, along with faculty from University Library, the French and Italian departments, the Kaplan Institute and the Block Museum of Art all worked together to bring Rotelli back to » See DEERING, page 2 Deering.

Linda Gates, head of voice From page 1 in NU’s theater department, praised Rotelli’s unconventional approach of intertwining the art of light paintings with the art of poetry and its performance. “Marco’s passion for illuminating physical spaces with light partners with his passion for poetry. The two seem to work beautifully together,” Gates said. Born in Italy in 1955, Rotelli draws much of his inspiration from his hometown of Venice, known as the “City of Lights.” “Everywhere you walk in Venice, there is the light,” Rotelli said. “This is why I think it is important to bring the idea of the light
at every site and every place.” Graduating with a degree in architecture in 1982, Rotelli emerged into the art scene with a diverse and rather modern vision. “I think that today, it is a contemporary time,” Rotelli said. “You can work in different styles, in different media and in different materials. I work in painting, I work with technology, I work with paper and I work with marble.” Rotelli’s artistic expertise primarily involves projecting light onto well-known landmarks in cities like Paris, Milan, New York and Dubai. This past June, Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History showcased Rotelli’s “Divina Natura” to honor Italian culture’s influence on Chicago. The
light installation was inspired by Dante Alighieri’s classic epic poem, “The Divine Comedy.” In addition to the light, poetry from seven Chicagoan poets and the music of Thomas Masters, Karolina Dvorakova and Adrian Leverkuhn accompanied the exhibition. In fact, all of Rotelli’s contributions incorporate art and poetry, displaying lines from famous poems onto buildings. Rotelli said he is motivated to combine both illuminated images and words because “amusement is very important” to him. “For me it’s not important that you read all of the poems on the walls. The height of my work is amusement — that you can see what you see every day in different points
of view,” Rotelli said. Inside the library Monday, members of NU’s acting faculty and theater students celebrated Rotelli’s installation and performed passages from famous poems in an open reception. Gates selected the poems, many of them Shakespearean sonnets. “The poems all have to do with winter because the whole idea is to take back this cold bleak time and sort of brighten the dark,” Gates said. An encore performance will be held Thursday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Due to limited space, the audience will be capped at 150 people. email@example.com
WINTER PREVIEW BY DEVAN COGGAN
With an influx of new TV shows in the fall and an abundance of blockbuster movies each summer, winter can feel like a boring time to be a pop culture fan. Fortunately, this Winter Quarter promises plenty of new releases to look forward to. (I mean, what else are you going to do except watch TV and movies when there’s a foot of snow on the ground?)

Fresh faces on the late-night scene The stale lineup of late-night shows is getting a bit of a shake up as beloved NU alum Seth Meyers (Communication ‘96) will take over Jimmy Fallon’s desk Feb. 24 as the new host of “Late Night,” while Fallon will move up to “The Tonight Show.” In addition to his house band The Roots and his inability to keep a straight face, Fallon will hopefully bring a new energy to the show, an energy Jay Leno has lacked for the past, oh, 20 years or so.
Ensemble comedies Nobody does an ensemble comedy better than Wes Anderson, and in typical Anderson style, the upcoming “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (March 7) is stacked with talented actors. With Ralph Fiennes, Adrien Brody, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson and Tilda Swinton, the cast reads like the guest list at the coolest party ever. Murray will also appear in another comedy with a killer cast: George Clooney’s “The Monuments Men” (Feb. 7), which follows a group of art historians who set out to save priceless works of art from Nazi destruction. It doesn’t sound like Oscar material, but with Clooney and Murray cracking jokes and fighting Nazis with Matt Damon, John Goodman and Cate Blanchett, it’ll definitely be fun.
The polar vortex, otherwise known as the arctic blast of air that affected most of the United States, is finally over – for now. The frigid temperatures paralyzed air travel and caused major delays for many, especially college students returning from winter break. Now another cold front is apparently in the works. In honor of polar vortex part two, Northwestern students and Daily staffers give five words for their experience with the exceedingly freezing temperatures. —Compiled by Kendall Siewert
Netflix binge-watching Unfortunately, Netflix kicked off 2014 by purging some awesome shows and movies. (I guess if I still want to be able to watch “Troll II” whenever I want, I’ll have to buy it on DVD). The good news is that exciting things are coming to the streaming service this winter, including the final season of “Breaking Bad” and the second season of the service’s original series “House of Cards.” All episodes of “House of Cards” will be available Feb. 14, which means yes, I am considering Kevin Spacey my valentine this year.

WORTH THE HYPE?
Tickets for this year’s Coachella went on sale Wednesday and, to nobody’s surprise, sold out in record time. It took just two hours and 37 minutes for the festival to sell approximately 160,000 tickets for both mid-April weekends. Those seeking an explanation need look no further than the three headliners anchoring each day of the event. Coachella is perfectly capitalizing on the newly released albums of Muse and Arcade Fire. Muse just released its latest album, “Live at Rome Olympic Stadium,” on Dec. 2. Featured on the album alongside the band is a raucous Roman crowd of more than 60,000 people who simply do not stop screaming. I wonder if they even heard any of the music that was playing, but one thing’s for sure, they were having a damn good time. Arcade Fire last headlined Coachella in 2011 after its last album, “The Suburbs,” won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. With its newest collection, “Reflektor,” drawing rave reviews, it’s no wonder fans are jumping at the chance to see the band perform in a festival setting. And then there is the small fact of what might be the most anticipated Coachella act of all time — the OutKast reunion. The group has not released any studio work since “Idlewild” in 2006, and the prospect of seeing Big Boi reunite with Andre 3000 has
me binging their music on Spotify, checking tour dates and looking for Polaroid pictures to shake. Honestly, Coachella’s lineup poster could just have “OutKast” in size 48 Comic Sans font in the middle with the names of other acts placed in the shape of arrows facing inwards. That’s how big of a deal it is. The rest of the lineup is also littered with musicians who could easily be headliners for any other festival. Opening for OutKast on Friday is Grouplove, Bastille, The Cult, Ellie

Top to bottom, this might be the most stacked lineup I have ever seen. Although, Northwestern’s schedule makes it extremely difficult to actually attend the event (I applaud any who are doing so anyway), I will definitely be glued to my computer for the festival’s live stream.
Goulding, Girl Talk (the best live performance I have ever been to) and Zedd, among others. Saturday features Kid Cudi, Nas, Empire of the Sun, MGMT, Foster the People, Lorde, Skrillex, Pharrell Williams, Queens of the Stone Age and headliner Muse. Chance the Rapper, Big Gigantic, Duck Sauce, Motorhead, Calvin Harris, Beck and many others help Arcade Fire close the weekend on a strong note.

If you’re like me, the best part of Superbowl Sunday is the snacks, the halftime show and Animal Planet’s “Puppy Bowl,” which showcases two hours of small, fluffy dogs playing (aka the best thing ever). This year, however, the Hallmark Channel (wait, there’s a Hallmark Channel?) is upping the cuteness and airing the first-ever “Kitten Bowl” on Feb. 2. Please, please, please let this be the start of a trend replacing all television programs with hours of small, cute animals playing. Next year I’m hoping we’ll get the “Slow Loris Bowl.”

At age seven, I received the pinterest greatest piece columnist of mail I could @heyhay94 possibly have imagined. No, it wasn’t my premature acceptance letter to Hogwarts (although, I did apply early decision because, like Northwestern, Hogwarts loves those ED wizards), and no, it wasn’t a response from Hilary Duff on my desire to serve a guest spot on an upcoming “Lizzie McGuire” episode. It was better. I was going to be in the art fair. The annual district art fair featured the best art produced by students from kindergarten to eighth grade, and second-grade me was megapumped to be in the showcase. I wasn’t exactly shocked my work was selected; after all, I had made a snowman out of paper snowflakes and pipe cleaners. It’s pretty tough to top that kind of artistic vision. On the day of the fair, I proudly showed my adoring fans (see: parents) around the gym to my artwork. They responded accordingly as I beamed with pride. This moment was the pinnacle of my artistic career. I was in second grade, and my art has been going all downhill ever since. With that in mind, I turned to Pinterest to try to salvage some of the artistic magic I was able to capture 12 long years ago. I found a seemingly simple tutorial on how to draw a cat, and the pin was even described as “elementary
drawing lessons.” I assumed I would be able to keep up. Of all the things I have attempted to recreate from Pinterest, this was, perhaps, the venture into which I entered with the lowest expectations. Outside of my exceptional snowflake snowman and a few painted ceramics courtesy of The Painted Penguin, my artistic ventures have resulted in vastly subpar work. Nonetheless, this cat drawing looked so easy that even I could create something that at least partially resembled a feline. I began with step one by drawing the three concentric circles outlined in the pin. I erased and redid this step multiple times until I felt my circles would result in a correctly sized cat. Step two was more difficult, as I needed to draw the cat’s paws and tail. I floundered. My drawing suffered. My cat was now lopsided with creepy looking feet. I shook my head and moved on to step three. I adorned my feline friend with a face and erased some of the guiding lines I had drawn in earlier in the process. After step three, Muffin, the name I decided best fit my cat’s essence, was finished. Did my final product look like a fat cat, as I had desired? To some extent. Muffin beamed back at me, and I realized that the Pinterest instructions were quite helpful. Though they did not have words, the visual step-by-step definitely aided in my lukewarm success. firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome back, Current readers! It’s a new quarter and a new year, so it’s only fitting that a new blog is born. I’ve decided to depart from the days of blogging about my escapades with online dating. Instead, I’ll be blogging about a much more important (albeit related) topic: sex! I must admit, I got a little burnt out rehashing the details of past dates and ex-lovers. From here on out, I’ll spare you the boring emotional details and focus on one positive thing that came out of many failed relationships: lots and lots of new sexual experiences. First and foremost, I am not claiming to be an expert concerning all things sexual. The point of this blog is to promote the open discussion of sex and sexual health. I’m one of those people who firmly believes that sex is totally natural, and people of all genders and sexual orientations should talk about it honestly and openly. If you read my other Current blogs, you’re already aware that I’m a classic over-sharer. As I’ve said before and will surely say again, my pain is your gain. My embarrassing sex stories can hopefully help you or at the very least make you laugh. All I want is to offer my take on things such as nipple clamps, sexting, lingerie, oral sex and more, while hopefully entertaining or engaging you in the process. 2013 was a notably sex-filled year for me. If I were to make a graph of my sexual partners, let’s just say last year was undoubtedly the climax (I crack myself up).
All the way through freshman year I was a mostly-virginal-nottechnically-virgin who dreaded having sex because I’d only done it once. Then 2013 happened, and well... I’m a totally different sexual creature than I was. I’m not condoning promiscuity or damning those who choose to remain chaste; all I’m saying is that I’ve learned a lot and want to share it with the world. I hope you’ll trust that my heart (and vagina) is in the right place here. I love having sex, and I love talking about sex. (Disclaimer: As I discuss various topics, please note they are from the point of view of a promiscuous heterosexual female, and it is not my intention to exclude, overlook or demean any other viewpoints, gender identities or orientations, but can only speak from my own experiences). To maintain some mystery, I won’t tell you exactly how many guys I’ve slept with or how many d---- I’ve had in my mouth (two totally different numbers, FYI). What I will tell you is anything and everything I know about all aspects of sex and hope I can be somewhat informative. If you’re bored in class, feel free to email or tweet me questions to answer in future blogs. I’d love to talk about what you want to hear! No question is too personal, so don’t be shy. I can’t wait to delve into all things sexy for you, Current readers. Until next week, be safe and be sexual! email@example.com

New Disney thrills, but remember the underrated CHELSEA SHERLOCK
When “Frozen” first premiered, my Facebook feed started to fill with rave reviews of the movie. Several friends deemed it the best movie Disney has ever made. It’s so popular that it is already being turned into a Broadway musical. One thing that makes the movie stand out from other classic Disney animated films is that it breaks the mold of stories of a girl and a boy falling in love. Instead, it focuses on the power of the bond between sisters. This seems to be a growing trend in modern Disney movies. Recent Disney movies

The owner of the house has reported over $20,000 in damages, and the incident is classified as a felony. This is just the latest in a string of bad Bieber behavior. Looks like he’s headed toward Britney circa 2007 — but maybe not quite as bad as Amanda circa 2013 (yet).

like “The Princess and the Frog” and “Brave” feature strong female characters, rather than damsels in distress. They have also branched away from the typical “princess-finding-herprince” plot. While classic princess movies like “Cinderella” and “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” are what typically come to mind when thinking of Disney movies, there are many other animated features that are unique yet underappreciated. Here are my top five: 1) “Robin Hood” (1973) This movie, like most Disney movies, has a lot of jokes that are easily missed the first time watching it as a child. There are a variety of sassy characters, and the style of music stands out from other classic Disney films with its folksy style. The plot centers on the classic tale of the foxy Robin Hood. Just try not to fall in love with the adorable group of children that help Robin save the day, especially the loveable Skippy and Toby Turtle.
2) “Hercules” (1997) What is better than a Disney prince? A Greek god. Hercules is one of Disney’s most attractive characters. For anyone who grew up as a scrawny high schooler, it’s an inspiration tale to watch Herc go from awkward to awesome. The movie also features Danny DeVito as the voice of Phil, and there are some great references to other movies, such as “Midnight Cowboy” and Greek myths: “Wow. What a day. First that restaurant by the bay. And then that, that play, that, that, that Oedipus thing. Man, I thought *I* had problems.” There is also a good lesson about sacrificing yourself to help others. 3) “Oliver and Company” (1988) A snobby poodle with a slew of ex-boyfriends, a kitten rescued from the mean streets of a big city and the gangster who kidnaps a little girl make up this movie. It’s a heartwarming tale of the bond between a girl and her pets.
4) “The Sword in the Stone” (1963) Before Camelot, there was a boy named Arthur, some crazy villagers and the legendary sword in the stone. GIFs from the movie pop on my Tumblr randomly, reminding me of all the random stuff that happens in this movie. It’s one of the lesser known animated movies — and also one of the quirkiest. There is a solid scene in which Merlin accidentally transforms himself and Arthur into fish. 5) “The Aristocats” (1970) First off, this movie gets points for the pun. The essential plot is that when the wealthy owner of a family of cats gives them her inheritance in her will, her butler decides to get rid of them, and a team of animals works to rescue the kittens. This movie reveals a world in which kittens take music and art lessons, and dogs learn to drive. firstname.lastname@example.org
Globes bring the insanity, hint at Oscar noms
mollie cahillane tv columnist @molliecahillane
On Sunday, the Golden Globes kicked off the start of the 2014 awards season, or as I like to call it, the time when I get angry because my favorites never win. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler once again kicked ass and proved the Globes are clearly the craziest of the shows. I love the Globes not only for the insanity that can happen (like Emma Thompson downing a martini and throwing her shoes on stage) but also for the Oscar indications. In terms of television, “Breaking Bad” finally got the recognition it deserves. The show had never won a Golden Globe before, but Bryan Cranston won “Best Actor in a Television Drama Series,” and the show won “Best Television Drama.” However, the highlight had to be Aaron Paul yelling, “Yeah bitch!” to end the acceptance speech. He’s got limited time left when it’s socially acceptable to do so, so he better take advantage of it. Amy Poehler, in her sixth season of “Parks and Recreation,” earned a Golden Globe for her role as the zealous government employee Leslie Knope. And Emilia Clarke presented the award to Amy, so the fangirl in me naturally died. “Parks and Rec” did not take home the trophy for best TV musical or comedy, but newcomer “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” beat out veterans “The Big Bang Theory” and “Modern Family” (finally!!!!). No love for “Modern Family” this year — probably because the show has turned into the offensive stereotypes it used to parody. Also, the curse has been broken. Leonardo DiCaprio won an award for something, much to the Internet’s delight. Our boy Leo took home the Globe for “Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy” for his role in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” However, I’d argue that Leo is now desperately seeking an Oscar before his glory days expire. David O. Russell’s film, “American Hustle,” is clearly gunning for the Oscars, as he brought back much of the same cast as in his
award-winning film “Silver Linings Playbook.” The Academy loved “Silver Linings,” especially America’s sweetheart Jennifer Lawrence. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association gave her the award for “Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture” prompting indignation among many who believed the award should have gone to Lupita Nyong’o for her role in “12 Years a Slave.” I’m predicting Lawrence will win an Oscar again this year; the Academy adores her. It seems that our beloved J-Law can do no wrong, even when she’s wearing a dress that looks like the Little Mermaid’s sail outfit. Her “American Hustle” co-star Amy Adams also took home a definitely deserved award for “Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy” and will be nominated for
Source: Facebook an Oscar for sure. The Golden Globes split their film awards into two categories, which makes it a little more difficult to predict the Oscar nominations. “12 Years a Slave” won “Best Motion Picture - Drama” and “American Hustle” won “Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy” will come down to these two. However, we can’t ignore other Oscar-bait movies like “Gravity” and “Philomena.” Also, Spike Jonze’s film “Her” earned a lot of praise late in the season and even took home the Globe for “Best Screenplay - Motion Picture.” Honestly, I’m pulling for “American Hustle.” What can I say, I love me some J-Law.

When Asian restaurant Lulu’s closes in February, it will be gutted and replaced by a new farm-to-table restaurant. The lease for the new restaurant, Boltwood, has already been signed by its new tenants, Brian Huston, currently head chef at Chicago’s The Publican, and John Kim of The Brothers K Coffeehouse, 500 Main St. Daniel Kelch, owner and founder of Lulu’s, 804 Davis St., said there is no particular reason he is closing Lulu’s beyond being “just a little tired.” He opened the restaurant 21 years ago and always planned to lease out the space, he said. However, Lulu’s may not be shutting its doors for good. Kelch also owned Taco Diablo, which burned down in December, and Kelch said while he has made no definite plans, he is considering reopening both restaurants at new locations. “If we rebuild one restaurant, it’s not that difficult to build two right together,” Kelch said. As far as the future of the Davis Street storefront, Kelch said he wants future tenants to maintain the local edge Lulu’s holds. “We wanted an independent operator with strong roots in the community,” he said. Boltwood fits Kelch’s criteria because both managers grew up and went to high school in Evanston. Huston said he was wasn’t planning on leaving his

current gig but couldn’t turn down the opportunity to launch the new restaurant. “The Publican was kind of my dream job,” Huston said. “They’ve let me carve out my own niche and do everything I wanted to do there.” Huston will stay at The Publican for another two months before shifting his attention to Boltwood. Kim, along with his brother Brian, has run The Brothers K Coffeehouse since 2005. His brother will continue to manage the coffee shop while John will transition to Boltwood as a managing partner to run the front-of-the-house operations. Both Kim and Huston hope to find a positive group of employees. Huston, who will run the back of the house, described wanting to create an environment where
“it’s a fun place to work, and people are taken care of … and excited about what they’re doing every day.” Huston says the farm-to-table approach, where food comes directly from farmers, is something he has always done and will continue at Boltwood. Beyond that approach, he hopes to partner with local schools by buying food produced in their community gardens. Kelch said he still feels the loss of Lulu’s is a bittersweet one. “After you do something for 21 years, you have a lot invested in it, and it’s kind of part of who you are,” he said. email@example.com
Medill to start graduate sports program NO ISSUE OF THE DAILY NORTHWESTERN ON MONDAY, JAN. 20, IN HONOR OF MLK DAY.
By ALLY MUTNICK
daily senior staffer @allymutnick
With the support of some famous alumni, professors at the Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications are in the early stages of bringing a sports journalism program to the graduate school curriculum. Billed as a Sports Immersion program, the new initiative will begin this academic year with student trips to sports media companies and team franchises with the potential of becoming an area of concentration for Medill’s graduate program. Starting Winter Quarter, a faculty committee will begin to introduce courses, eventually adding classes in sports reporting, sports marketing and other electives to the graduate school, said Medill Prof. Charles Whitaker (Medill ‘80, ‘81), who chairs the committee. “Medill has for decades produced probably more high-profile sports reporters and media professionals
than any of our peer institutions,” said Whitaker, a Students Publishing Co. board member. “We decided to get off the sidelines and get into the game with sports journalism.” While the program is only for graduate students, some courses may be offered to undergraduates as well, Whitaker said. Medill Prof. Candy Lee is currently teaching a sports marketing class for undergraduate students, and ESPN contributor LZ Granderson taught a course in the fall on sports journalism. Twenty-nine students were accepted as “priority members” into the program, meaning they will be assigned a Medill alumni mentor and receive the first invitation to special trips and speakers, Lee said. Whitaker recalled a time when some Medill professors had a distaste for the idea of a sports journalism program but said the journalism world has changed. Strong support from Medill alumni encouraged faculty members to create the program, Whitaker said, citing interest from journalists including J.A. Adande (Medill ‘92), Michael Wilbon (Medill ‘80),
Mike Greenberg (Medill ‘89) and Christine Brennan (Medill ‘80, ‘81). The program’s creation comes shortly after the arrival of Medill Dean Brad Hamm, who created the first master’s degree in sports journalism during his time at Indiana University. Whitaker said he would not rule out the idea of a sports journalism program in Medill’s undergraduate school, but said it will not happen in the “foreseeable future.” Medill officially launched the program Monday with a sports movie night attended by University President Morton Schapiro. About 30 interested students attended, Whitaker said. Medill graduate student Kim Adams was accepted as a priority member in the program at the beginning of the quarter. “I kind of got my heart set on Northwestern and obviously was ecstatic when I got in,” she said. “When I heard they were launching this program that would offer us so many opportunities in sports journalism, I was so excited.” firstname.lastname@example.org

NU to play Boise State in first dual of season By KEVIN CASEY
the daily northwestern @KevinCasey19
Following a fall slate that produced mixed results and with a squad overwhelmingly composed of young players, Northwestern heads into the dualmatch season as one of the most intriguing teams in the nation. The No. 32Wildcats’ first test begins Friday, when the team travels out west for its initial foray into dual action, taking on No. 46 Boise State at the Boise Racquet & Swim Club. The team graduated three key contributors last year, and Raleigh Smith, the only remaining senior on the squad, is injured. That leaves a line-up composed of two juniors, two sophomores and four freshmen. “We’re definitely missing a couple of seniors from last year, but we still have Raleigh Smith who’s done a pretty good job so far leading us,” freshman Sam Shropshire said. “We’re definitely still doing well in the leadership department.” Nobody, of course, is doubting the ability of these players. NU’s quartet of freshmen composes the 8thranked recruiting class of 2013. One of these newcomers, Strong Kirchheimer,

a lease with us, so that’s an issue that we still need to address,” city manager Wally Bobkiewicz said. “How the renovations will be made and how long the lease will last — all those things still need to be determined.” Residents, about 60 in attendance, seemed generally receptive to the IDNR’s proposal but skeptical of the financial burden its large plans may place on the city. Barbara Janes, co-founder of No Park Sale, a community organization formed to see the decision regarding Harley Clarke Mansion through, said she worries about what might happen if the federal government cuts off the IDNR’s funds in the future. She said No
made it to the semifinals of the Big Ten Singles Championship in the fall. Shropshire is No. 114 on the Men’s National Singles Rankings. Coach Arvid Swan isn’t too worried about the balancing act — his upperclassmen have chops too. Junior Alex Pasareanu and sophomore Mihir Kumar combined for a 32-17 record in dual singles matches. “(The lineup) is going to be a mix,” Swan said. “We’re still not entirely sure of the lineup right now, still waiting on a few things.” For Boise State, the path to knocking off NU involves capturing the opening doubles point — the Cats won the doubles point in just two of their last 12 matches last season — and pouncing at the top. Boise State boasts the No. 54 men’s singles player in the country in Andy Bettles and also has Nathan Sereke, who started in the team’s No. 2 spot all of last season. “They’re really strong at 1 and 2, they’ve got two guys at the top of the lineup that are older guys who have established themselves as two of the best guys in the country,” Swan said. “We’re going to have to play well in all spots, but we’re going to have to be really ready at the top.”
Park Sale will not throw support behind either group but both options sound “promising.” “I think we need to find a way to ensure that the lakefront remains undeveloped,” Janes said. With IDNR’s plan, “the park land will remain public. That’s the important thing, that every citizen of Evanston … has access to the lakefill.” Bobkiewicz said the city will continue dialogue with both the IDNR and EAC to iron out the details of both groups’ proposals and each group’s financial capability to tackle renovations of the property. Evanston’s Human Services Committee will discuss the options in February, and a decision will likely be made by City Council in the spring, he said. firstname.lastname@example.org

not having a reputation, and then they could just see us for who we are without a stereotype.” Delta Tau Delta was also new to the formal recruitment process. This was Delt’s second time participating in winter recruitment since returning to campus in 2012. In an email to The Daily, Delt President Michael Graf said the fraternity gained 30 new members this year. Devon D’Apuzzo, one of the new Delt members, said he liked that the fraternity was newer to campus. “I thought it’d be really cool to kind of be a defining member of the house and have a say in the future, instead of being set in stone,” the McCormick freshman said. Last year, Delt had 22 new members after completing recruitment. Ritter believes one of the reasons IFC saw an increase in overall pledges was due to the Building Better Leaders campaign launched in the fall, following 2012’s “…and I am Greek” campaign. “It was kind of this idea of we’ve shown what Greek students do in addition to being Greek, but what opportunities have they been offered because of being Greek,” said Ritter, a Weinberg senior. “Everybody has a different story about what Greek life means to them and what kind of opportunities it’s provided … We hope that was
a little inspiring for people hoping to go through the recruitment process.” Although the recruitment process stayed the same, Ritter said IFC participated in several new initiatives in the fall, such as co-hosting the new student tailgate and a Greek life question-andanswer session. The turnout at the Q-and-A session was low, but Ritter said he hopes it will grow in the upcoming years. “Our whole attitude about it was that it didn’t hurt us to show up, and if we got one person or we got 80, at least we were getting people’s questions answered,” Ritter said. This year also marked the return of a fraternity recruitment kick-off event, which did not happen last year due to low turnout in the past when the event was held at Norris. The decision to move this year’s kick-off to the area outside of Lisa’s Cafe produced much higher numbers. D’Apuzzo said his interest in joining a fraternity grew as he spent more time at Northwestern. “The more I came to stuff, the more I realized it was just a bunch of guys sharing common interests, hanging out, having a good time, being together,” he said. “And that’s what I was looking for.”
Cobb still led the starting unit, which combined for only 25 points. Sophomore center Alex Olah again flashed some skill early, but he finished with only five shot attempts and 4 points as the offense seemed to phase him out. Olah came up short on the boards as well, only picking up four rebounds, fewer than both Lumpkin and Cobb. The Spartans took advantage on the offensive glass, picking up 14 offensive rebounds. As a team, NU’s shooting totals disappointed, as they have for much of the season. The Cats combined for 13-of-46 shooting from the field, good for only a 28.3 field goal percentage. From three, NU was even worse, shooting under 22 percent. “We’re on the right track,” Collins said. “We’re a different team than we were 10 days ago. If we play like we played tonight, we’ll be in a position to win a lot of games.

soon after Lumpkin’s energy burst. The Spartans’ talent took over, and the Cats’ offense could not keep up. After Abrahamson’s 3 with 17:46 left in the game, Michigan State went on a 24-13 run the rest of the way to put NU away comfortably. “We have to find a way to score more than 40 points,” Collins said. “We’re having a hard time getting any easy baskets. We have to be opportunistic. I’ve got to do a better job of getting shots for Drew and JerShon. … That’s not their fault.” The Cats struggled to find scoring from anyone on the team. Their only player to score in double digits was Demps, who finished with 12 points. Playing without junior guard Dave Sobolewski for the second straight game, junior JerShon Cobb started at point guard and could not get much going. Cobb shot 3-of-12 for 8 points.

NU fails to secure upset as defense flounders against slippery Michigan State By rohan nadkarni
daily senior staffer @Rohan_NU
It was almost deja vu. Two years ago at home, Northwestern knocked off then-No. 7 Michigan State in the biggest win of that season. Wednesday night, the Wildcats (8-10, 1-4 Big Ten) hung around but failed to pull off an upset and fell to the No. 4 Spartans (16-1, 5-0), 54-40. NU could not build a conference winning streak after knocking off in-state rival Illinois on Sunday in Evanston. “Tonight’s game was just a battle,” coach Chris Collins said. “I couldn’t be prouder of how our guys played tonight. You had two teams competing like crazy. The game was in the balance, but (Michigan State is) just

better than us right now.” NU’s defense was key to keeping the team in the game Wednesday. Despite the Spartans outrebounding the Cats 39-35, NU kept up its defensive intensity, even when having to defend multiple possessions. “That was the best defense I’ve seen here in a while,” Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said. “They played so hard. They outrebounded us in the first. It’s a sign of a good young team that’s playing hard. It’s a sign of a good young coach.” Redshirt freshman Sanjay Lumpkin especially impressed on the defensive
end. The forward made a huge impact early in the second half with two athletic blocks. On the first, Lumpkin was the lone defender near the basket on a fast break, blocking a layup that ignited a Kale Abrahamson 3 on the other end. Minutes later, Lumpkin ran the length of the floor before a thunderous chase-down block. Lumpkin took the energy back to the offensive end, where an offensive rebound led to a layup from redshirt sophomore guard Tre Demps. “Sanjay’s a warrior. He’s only going to get better,” Collins said. “All these games are such great experience for him. He’s a big part of our future. He represents all of the qualities I want our program to be about.” But the seams started to come apart » See Basketball, page 6
Northwestern had an upset in its sights. The Wildcats just needed offense. Early in the second half Wednesday night, down only a few points, NU’s defense continued to stop Michigan State. On the other end, however, the Cats, characteristically couldn’t do much. It seemed time for the team’s best player to step forward and provide scoring to fuel a second straight surprising victory. But senior forward, co-captain and leading scorer Drew Crawford couldn’t deliver, and NU fell to No. 4 Michigan State 54-40. Though the Cats struggled from the field as a team — as they have most of the season — Crawford’s stat line was most jarring. The forward shot 1-of-8 from the field, missing all four of his attempts from 3-point range. He finished with just 6 points and five rebounds. After the game, Crawford said he needs to improve his shot selection and credited the Spartans with making scoring difficult. “They’re a great defensive team, so I’ve definitely got to give it to them,” he said. “They do a good job just compacting the lane. Every time you try to drive they’ve got guards with quick hands reaching down at the ball.” But Michigan State coach Tom Izzo wasn’t ready to accept full responsibility for Crawford’s off
night. “I think we did a good job, and I think he didn’t do as good a job as I’ve seen him play,” Izzo said. “I’ll give us a little credit, im a They’re a great hlittle defensive team, blame.” so I’ve definitely It was Crawgot to give it to ford’s them...

That game was also the only other time this season Crawford made fewer than two field goals. But Wednesday’s game was not an isolated poor performance for Crawford. In fact, it appears to be continuation of a trend. Crawford is now shooting only 29.8 percent in his last six games, five of them NU losses. He’s 6-of-28 from beyond the arc and has turned the ball over 18 times during that stretch. Scoring has been a problem for the Cats all season, with Crawford often the team’s only viable offensive weapon. Despite his recent drop in productivity, the senior still leads NU with 15 points and seven rebounds a game. Cats’ coach Chris Collins said has not questioned Crawford’s status as the team’s go-to scorer. “No one cares more than Drew,” Collins said. “He’s our leader, he’s our guy and even in a game like this I’ll go with him any time.”
Wildcats fall in heartbreaker against Fighting Illini By Rebecca Friedman
daily senior staffer
Despite the best efforts of its young squad, Northwestern fell to in-state rival Illinois in heartbreaking fashion Wednesday at WelshRyan Arena. The Wildcats (11-6, 1-3 Big Ten) were down just 2 with 5.8 seconds left in the game after a back-andforth battle with the Fighting Illini (8-9, 1-3). Star freshman guard Ashley Deary took the ball down the court in an attempt to get the tying basket, but Illinois, as it was able to for much of the game, forced a turnover and held on to win 76-74. “We were stagnant and not moving, and that’s what caused turnovers. We were trying to force some things,” coach Joe McKeown said. “However, we didn’t turn the ball over in the backcourt where they could score.” The Cats had 17 turnovers in the game, including seven by Deary, who didn’t play at her usual caliber, putting up only 7 points but still managing to lead the team with nine assists.
Despite her subpar outing on Wednesday, Deary’s usually exceptional play through the season so far earned her a spot on the 2014 Nancy Lieberman Award Watch List, honoring her as a top point guard in women’s NCAA Division I basketball, the team announced earlier Wednesday. “It means a lot to me to be honored like that,” she said. “There’s a lot of great players on that list, and I’m honored to be with them.” The Cats trusted their point guard with the ball in the final seconds of the game, hoping she could work her magic to tie the game. Sophomore guard Maggie Lyon had no doubt NU did the right thing by trusting the freshman guard with the game on the line. “We want the ball in (Deary’s) hands,” Lyon said. “The play was well planned out, and next time we do it. We will execute it.” The team’s youngsters still managed to carry their weight Wednesday night. Freshman forward Nia Coffey did what her classmate couldn’t, pushing through the staunch Illinois defense to lead the team with 20 points. In addition to its offensive
woes, NU had difficulty on defense as well, allowing Illinois to drain 11 3-pointers. “They shot well,” Lyon said. “We over-helped, and I think that we will see that in film tomorrow. That happened in Minnesota too.” The Cats had troubles containing Fighting Illini guards Ivory Crawford and Sarah Hartwell in particular. Crawford led her team with 19 points and was 2-of-2 from behind the arc, and Hartwell went 3-for-4 from deep. The two teams traded baskets and leads throughout the game, staying neck and neck until Deary’s turnover at the very end. The close game mimicked past matchups between the two rivals who always seem to be on each other’s heels. “Both teams really get up for the game,” Lyon said. “It’s a pride thing for all athletics within the university. We came out at the wrong end of this

one, but we’ll get them in the Big Ten Tournament if we see them.” Lyon herself came out strong on the 3-point line for the Cats, ending the night 4-of-8 from deep. NU faces Wisconsin on Saturday in Welsh-Ryan to cap off a busy,
three-game week. “The game Saturday has become big for us,” McKeown said. “We just need to learn from this and step up on Saturday.” email@example.com
