With just four Syracuse players in the NBA, is playing the zone in college too difficult an adjustment to make? By Jesse Dougherty asst. sports editor


hey were all handpicked for Jim Boeheim’s system. Jonny Flynn, a spry point guard from Niagara Falls, N.Y., primed to pressure the ball and jumpstart the fast break; Brandon Triche, a local 2-guard with a wide wingspan and innate scoring ability; Fab Melo, a raw 7-footer, the quintessential rim protector; Eric Devendorf, a sharpshooter just quick enough to sufficiently sit atop a zone. It’s a never-ending list. The chosen ones. The players plucked out of cities, suburbs, playgrounds and packed high school gyms to be links in Boeheim’s barbed-wire fence. When Boeheim decided to run the 2-3 zone almost exclusively around 1996, he also started to develop his prototypical recruit.  Each one destined for collegiate success — and possibly more. “Syracuse guys are picked in the lottery year-after-year,” said former Syracuse guard Jason Hart.  Yet there are just four Syracuse players currently in the NBA: Carmelo Anthony, Michael Carter-Williams, Dion Waiters and Wesley Johnson. It’s a proverbial cloud that hangs over Syracuse — the inexplicable lack of NBA success alongside other perennial powers including Duke, North Carolina and Kentucky that have churned out a wide mix of starters and role players in the last decade. The only glaring difference between the Orange and these programs is the Syracuse zone, patented but potentially problematic.   Former SU players didn’t attribute their professional inadequacy to the zone, but did say there are adjustments to make in the pros — challenging adjustments that no other rising players have to make.  “I don’t think playing zone hurts your ability to play man-to-man but it doesn’t help,” Triche said in an email. “Playing zone can hide

SU Athletics to reveal attendance By Brett Samuels asst. news editor

A record crowd will be on hand when Syracuse University takes on Duke University in the Carrier Dome Saturday night. SU athletics plans to release the final expected attendance number Thursday afternoon, said Joe Giansante, the executive senior associate athletic director. Shirts were available at Manny’s on Marshall Street Wednesday that read, “Sold Out 35,446,” but

Giansante said in an email that the number on the shirt is not correct. Whatever the expected attendance, it will shatter the record for on campus attendance at a basketball game, which is currently 35,012 for the SU vs. Georgetown University matchup last February. Tickets for Saturday night’s game officially sold out in December. However, there are still opportunities to win tickets through raffles and contests. Destiny USA is sponsoring one such contest where fans can register to win two courtside tickets.

With Syracuse’s win at Wake Forest Wednesday night, a win against Duke would give the Orange its best start in school history. ESPN’s College GameDay will be on campus Saturday as well to broadcast from the Carrier Dome. For those who plan on attending GameDay, doors will open at 7 a.m. with the show beginning at 11 a.m. However tip-off for the game isn’t until 6:30 p.m. The game will be brodcast on ESPN.

Marching band readies for Super Bowl pregame By Zane Warman staff writer

in front of 83,000 fans in MetLife Stadium. The songs, arranged by both SU and Rutgers directors, salute the sounds of the New YorkNew Jersey area with numbers by Jay Z, Bruce Springsteen and Frank Sinatra. Syracuse announced that the marching band would perform at the Super Bowl in December, but didn’t seriously begin to practice see super

THIRSTY thursday | urban wheat ale

Wheat ale offers higher quality light beer flavor By Tom Sharkey staff writer

Goose Island – 312 Urban Wheat Ale Last week’s heavy chocolate stout was satisfying, but this week I wanted to try a lighter beer. I chose Goose Island’s 312 Urban Wheat Ale mostly because of its eyecatching label, but I was also swayed in its direction because Goose Island is based in Baldwinsville, N.Y. I poured the 312 Urban Wheat Ale into my trusty pint glass and I was struck right away by the amount of bubbles and carbonation. There were so many bubbles fizzing upon pouring the beer into the glass that I almost felt like I had just poured Red Bull into a glass of vodka — it was that intense. The beer was a pale golden color and produced an off-white foamy head, but it dissipated pretty quickly. The bubbles eventually flattened as well, but not before I took my first sip. I’ve got to be honest — at first the taste reminded me of Bud Light. I really had no expectations for the 312 Urban Wheat Ale. Maybe I have

become too used to heavier, loud-tasting beers. Ironically, the subtlety of this beer was the first thing I noticed. Then I snapped out of it and realized that being a lighter beer doesn’t automatically put Goose Island’s 312 Urban Wheat Ale in the same category as Bud Light or, worse, Pabst Blue Ribbon. I grew to enjoy the taste more as I continued drinking. There was a faint orange taste that lingered for several seconds after each sip and this was the main draw to the 312 Urban Wheat Ale that distinguished it from its cheaper and mass-produced counterparts. It also didn’t taste too watered down which helped me take this beer a bit more seriously. The wheat taste was present, but not overwhelming, and overall it was very easy to drink. The 312 Urban Wheat Ale would be the perfect beer for those who have grown out of their Bud Light days, but still want to partake in some fancy binge drinking. In fact, I plan to get a six-pack myself for my Super Bowl party this Sunday.

Moreau, a senior advertising major, is close to finishing her time in college and soon she will have to pay for the loans that cover part of her Syracuse University education. But Moreau said she doesn’t know much about the conditions of her borrowing. Like many of her peers, she said she just skims over most of SU’s financial advice. The university’s

Office of Financial Aid and Scholarship Programs sends a number of financial aid resources every semester such as their financial aid newsletter, “I Otto Know This” financial literacy program and MySlice reminders. “A few students know a lot about their loans and repayments but my feeling is that the majority do not know a lot,” Cindi Comins, assistant director of financial aid at SU, said in an email. A lack of knowledge can leave students vulnerable to manipulation, to which the New York state government is taking action. In his 20142015 budget, Gov. Andrew Cuomo established the Student Protection

Unit within the New York Department of Financial Services, according to a Jan. 22 press release from the governor’s office. The Student Protection Unit aims to investigate improper conduct in the debt relief industry and promote consumer education that will allow students to make wise financial choices. Cuomo announced in the release that the unit issued subpoenas to 13 student debt relief companies in its first official action. The unit is investigating companies that potentially supply misleading information and charge excessive fees for services available for free through the federal government.

Ask best-selling author J.

editorial | by the daily orange editorial board

Government should educate N.Y. students on college loan options New York state Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Student Protection Unit should not only address the corruption among loan providers, but also implement initiatives to advertise the free loan service offered through the U.S. Department of Education. Student loan debt is a major problem in New York state. According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the average student debt per borrower is $27,310, the third highest of any state. Cuomo established the unit to investigate and reprimand corruption among loan providers. On Jan. 22, the unit took its first official

action when it issued subpoenas to 13 student debt relief companies as part of an investigation into allegations of false advertising and improper fees. These private companies charge students to consolidate multiple college loans into a single loan — a service that is available for free through the U.S. Department of Education. To address the issue, Cuomo’s unit should consider initiatives that educate students about their loan options as early as possible. Public high schools can host seminars that inform parents and students about the government’s loan service. Doing so could make more students aware

of their upcoming financial situations. Colleges should require incoming freshmen to take a safe loan education program, just as many require that students complete alcohol education programs. Loan options should also be emphasized during freshman orientation and when students receive their college acceptance letters. It is important that students are made aware of these issues early on. At Syracuse University, all freshmen are required to take a freshman forum class. Loan education should be an integral part of this class, which focuses on the transition to college and the fundamentals of good decision-making.

On a broader scale, television campaign advertising could be an effective way to reach a wide audience. The Cuomo administration should release a public service announcement to advertise the government’s service. Doing so could spread the message to parents and students across the state. It is not enough to punish debt relief companies for corrupt practices. Though this is important, it will not help in educating the public about their loan options. Students and parents must learn about the available government programs to make the best decisions for their families.

letter to the editor

‘Frozen’ serves as small, progressive step for female characters This was the first non-Pixar Disney film I have seen since “Mulan” because I stopped having an interest in watching the typical Disney “heroine in distress” movie plot. After returning home to Orlando for the break, almost all of my friends had nothing but rave reviews for “Frozen” but I just took it with a grain of salt. However, by the end of the break and hearing nothing but praise for the movie, I decided to go see it. Two things stood out to me when I went to see it; I could not believe the amount of young adults in the theatre and I was amazed at how not “typical Disney” this movie was. I was swept up in the pandemonium and decided to learn more about this movie.

After reading an article by Ms. Grimaldi in Wednesday’s Daily Orange, I had a few points that I feel the readers should know about. First off, I would like to say that I am not bashing that article. It was a great article. However, when she mentions that Disney changed the movie to fit a more “traditional mold of a hetero-normative love story,” it actually was the only way Disney could have this movie. In the Hans Christian Anderson story, Elsa (The Snow Queen) is seen more as the villain and Disney felt that they couldn’t lift the story from the pages and make it into a movie because they felt it wouldn’t have connected well with audiences or even make a lot sense. In fact, the producers and storyboard artists

spent a lot of time trying to fit everything together and the movie was nearly put back on the shelf during early pre-production. Finally, in regards to Mr. Lino DeSlavo’s comments about making a woman in a Disney movie, he made these comments about the animating process and how tough it is to tell a computer to make an angry face or any face because everyone has a different expression for the same emotion. Plus, telling a computer to make a single movement is tough in the animation process. Yes, Disney has moved forward with its movies, but let’s not say “Frozen” should have been more progressive. Let’s take it one step at a time.

Polar vortices occur more frequently than people might realize


ith below freezing temperatures over wide sections of the country and a new anonymous Twitter account for the unbearable cold, the term polar vortex has entered our popular lexicon. But the truth is that while we haven’t had temperatures like this in a while, polar vortices are not completely abnormal nor are they a direct result of climate change. First defined in the mid-19th century, polar vortices are cold air masses that spiral down from polar regions — in our case, the North Pole. Also called polar cyclones or lows, they are common year-round occurrences around the poles. Every so often when their flow is amplified, they make their way south to create the frigid conditions we’ve been experiencing.

21ST CENTURY TREE HUGGER This year, the polar vortex caused extremely cold conditions throughout the country, but even some of these temperatures are not as recordbreaking as they may seem. For instance, though Chicago has seen frigid conditions they are similar conditions to the minus 27 degrees and minus 18 degrees recorded in 1985 and 2009 respectively, according to Scientific American. Some scientists believe that the outcry about below zero temperatures points to the fact that many of our recent winters have been relatively warm. Other experts have described Web Developer Asst.

how the term itself is causing much of the outcry. The term “vortex” has a seemingly negative connotation, but really the word just refers to the rotation of the air mass, which leads to an extreme weather event. Mark Wysocki, a New York state climatologist quoted in Scientific American, believes the term has caused more confusion about the event. “It’s a fancy word for saying an intense low pressure that is spinning around up in the Arctic,” he said. “And we like to call it a vortex, because it spins. But it makes it sound evil.” As the event has caused commotion and confusion throughout the media, groups have been quick to judge the storm as evidence of climate change. Other opposing groups have even asserted that climate change is clearly false. Both views are not

correct. Polar vortices are not caused by climate change. It is not a causeand-effect scenario. Climate change is causing more erratic weather — that is true — but no one storm is the evidence of climate change. On the other hand, groups using the cold temperatures as evidence that climate change is not happening are also incorrect. This misconception may stem from the term “global warming,” which, without scientific understanding, may seem to be the opposite of cold temperatures. The world’s overall temperature is increasing. We have measurements to prove this. But that does not mean that local temperatures are increasing in the same manner. It really comes down to the difference between climate and weather. Higher global temperatures create

more extreme local weather, including the frequency and veracity of storms. Just because climate change does not cause a polar vortex does not mean that climate change is not happening. Scientific evidence backs up this fact. The groups that deny this evidence are showing a misunderstanding of science or a rejection of inconvenient findings. Despite the abnormally cold temperatures, polar vortices are a fairly normal occurrence. Instead of jumping to conclusions about what it all means, we should take time to learn more about our local and global weather events and trends.

fraternity at Arizona State University chose to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day by throwing a party featuring basketball jerseys, gang signs and watermelons used as vessels for alcohol. After photos of the party surfaced on social media with the hashtag #blackoutforMLK, ASU responded by permanently revoking recognition of its Tau Kappa Epsilon chapter.. According to the university’s press release, TKE has been on probation since 2012 but after the MLK day party, ASU permanently suspended the fraternity “for hosting an unregistered, off-campus event on January 19, 2014 that encouraged a racially-insensitive theme and created an environment conducive to underage consumption of alcohol.” The national fraternity, conversely, has decided to put the ASU chapter on probation for at least one year but not revoke their charter. After its own investigation, the national organization concluded that the party was not an official TKE sponsored event @dailyorange january 30, 2014

ASU suspends fraternity for racially-charged MLK party

because it was held at an individual member’s private residence and only 16 members of the fraternity were present. Thirty people attended the event. All officers who attended the party resigned their positions and all of the brothers who attended are facing possible suspension or expulsion from the fraternity. TKE’s national website also reports that the watermelon cup was brought by an attendee who is not a member of the fraternity and that some of the pictures that were shared by national media were actually from other Halloween and sports themed parties. In TKE’s official statement, they said that the party strayed from their mission statement. “We apologize for any offensive actions that a few of our members might have participated in,” Alex Baker, the chief information officer for the national organization, said in the statement. “We can assure all other parties that these actions do not represent Tau Kappa Epsilon and the beliefs of love, charity and esteem that we have stood by for 115 years.” Eduardo Pagán, the vice provost for academic excellence and inclusion at ASU, described ASU as a diverse campus. He said that in October 2013, the

university received the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity award. “Over the last decade we have steadily grown our racial and ethnic minority enrollment by pretty impressive numbers,” Pagán said. “It’s growing by design. One of the values that we embrace as an institution is that we want to recruit a diverse student body, but staff and faculty as well.” In a statement that was sent to ASU students, faculty and staff, president Michael Crow affirmed this commitment to diversity. “Teaching and nurturing integrity within our diverse university community is a significantly complex challenge but one to which we are wholly and unwaveringly committed,” Crow wrote. Pagán said the issue has brought a lot of national attention to campus. However, he still believes it is a diverse campus. “The actions of a few at this reprehensible, offcampus event do not reflect the efforts of over 70,000 students at ASU who daily strive to create a more inclusive and welcoming campus,” Pagán added in an email.

Classes for online master’s program to start in fall 2014 By Brett Samuels asst. news editor

The L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science will unveil a new graduate program this fall. Students will be able to enroll in an online program to earn their Master of Science in Electrical Engineering, with the first class beginning the fall 2014 semester. Ariel DuChene, an assistant dean for external relations at Syracuse University, said in an email that applications are being accepted now. DuChene said the program was approved by the state this past fall, and was “born out of a recognition that there is a growing need for professionals in all different areas of the energy sector.” She said the goal of the online MS program is to prepare students to be leaders in a variety of energy sectors in both industry and academics. DuChene added that the school is targeting 20 students for the program’s first year.

class in session Classes offered through the new Master of Science in Electrical Engineering include: • Digital Communications • Electromagnetic Fields • Digital Electric Circuits • Antennas and Antenna Systems • Wireless Communications

working world Companies SU engineering graduates have accepted positions at: • Deloitte Consulting • Department of Transportation • Entergy • Google • IBM • NASA • National Grid • Pratt & Whitney • Microsoft • Lockheed Martin • JP Morgan Chase • General Electric • Xylem • Constellation Energy

According to the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering’s website, it’s a 20-month program consisting of 30 credit hours, six of which can be transferred from graduate work in the same field at a different institution. Students applying for the program don’t have any on-site requirements, but graduate students in the online program are able to attend on campus events such as recruiting or career fairs. In addition, students must have at least three years of professional experience in a field such as electronics, communication or software engineering, according to the program’s website.

loans without adequate notice for enrolling students in debt relief programs that are available for free through the federal government,” according to the release. Anderson said he couldn’t outline the extent of investigations beyond the subpoena of the first 13 companies. DFS needs to survey the industry before deciding if more action is necessary, he said. Default Student Loan Assistance, LLC, one of the companies to which the governor’s office issued a subpoena, says on its website that it builds “custom debt consolidation packages that make paying back your students loans, at your pace, a reality.” The company didn’t return a call for comment on the subpoena. To set an agenda for future action, the unit

We’re going to take a look at the industry broadly and decide what action we’ll take in the future.” Matthew Anderson spokesman for the new york department of financial services

will evaluate the practices of companies like Default Student Loan Assistance, LLC, Anderson said. “We’re going to take a look at the industry broadly and decide what action we’ll take in the future,” Anderson said. Students who take out multiple loans to fund their education can consolidate payments to reduce stress and sometimes costs, according to the Federal Student Aid website. The federal government offers a service, free of additional charge, which combines federal education loans into one monthly payment to the U.S. Department of Education. The federal government provides free consolidation, but many debt relief companies charge for the same service, Anderson said. Misleading information can rope uninformed students into agreements that sap resources with excessive or hidden fees, he said.

lennon He said it’s important not only to read books, but also to learn through other platforms and about other topics. “You don’t have to read extensively in your field,” he said. “It might be beneficial for you to find other genres, other kinds of things. The novelist needs to be worldly.” The Q&A portion of the event dealt with Lennon’s novel “Familiar.” The novel follows a woman whose life is suddenly altered one day when she is driving home from her son’s grave. The novel is ambiguous as to whether she had a psychotic breakdown or was suddenly transported to an alternate universe. Following the Q&A and an intermission, Lennon read three of his works: a two-sentence story, a fiction piece based off a Google Earth image and the first chapter to an untitled novel. Lindsey Leigh, a sophomore in the College of Visual and Performing Arts, had to read “Familiar” and attend the lecture for her English and textual studies class. She said she

consolidate their undergraduate loans into one payment, he said. Since he was pretty well informed about his borrowing conditions, Heim avoided the pitfalls some other recent graduates encounter. Though he said he can’t remember if he paid an additional charge, Heim consolidated the payments through Sun Trust Bank, a national holding company. Students who are unaware of the federal debt relief options could possibly approve a misleading agreement. Moreau said she hadn’t heard of the federal government’s consolidation service and quickly realized that she could have ended up paying to combine her loans. Some companies also charge students to help lower payments through income based repayment or pay as you earn programs, which the federal government originally implemented, said Comins, the assistant director of financial aid. Qualified students can use those services for free through the government but many don’t realize they exist, she added. “If a student qualifies, they’ll put them into those programs. They just have to ask,” Comins said. In order for the Student Protection Unit to serve its purpose, it depends as much on students’ awareness as government cracking down on debt relief companies, Anderson said. DFS is expanding consumer outreach in conjunction with the Student Protection Unit’s investigations, he said. “It’s extremely important now to educate young people about good financial habits,” Anderson said. Comins said she approves of the Student Protection Unit concept if it uncovers that the companies are, in fact, breaking consumer protection laws. Scams and tricks in the student loan industry can’t gain traction if students and their families gain an understanding of payment options, Comins said. The Student Protection Unit plans to address students’ understanding of loan conditions. She added that students have resources available to them, including the National Student Loan Data Center, and required exit loan counseling upon graduation. Accessing educational resources remains a vital protection against misleading information, she said. Said Comins: “There’s just a lot of companies out there looking to make money. If a student or family doesn’t know all of their options or isn’t aware of all their options, it may be difficult for them.” became convinced that Lennon had a reason for the cliffhanger. “I like how he said it was better to give the readers what they don’t know they want instead of giving the readers what they want,” she said. Dana Wakeley, a freshman advertising major, also said she appreciated what Lennon had to say about his book. “I have a lot of images I put in my head while I’m reading it, but it’s interesting to hear what he actually has to say about those things I’m thinking about,” she said. Lennon has been lauded for his strong character writing, especially from the female perspective in “Familiar.” During the Q&A, he insisted that it wasn’t difficult because women aren’t all that different from men. Lennon said characters and themes, rather than plot, drive his stories. He added that if he knows something will bother a character, he will throw it at them. “The basic needs and desires of human beings are roughly universal,” he said.

super bowl until the spring semester began, said Allan Duso, a drum leader in the marching band. He added that the band lost members who graduated or decided to study abroad. To compensate, the band brought in other members who were available to rehearse or returned from studying abroad. “Not everyone’s there all the time, but we’ve made do, and by now we sound great and we’re going to look really great too,” said Duso, who is also a senior television, radio and film major. He added that the band’s sound “has not wavered,” and the performance will match their usual style. Randall Brown, a sousaphone player, said although they have been practicing for a while, the performance will reflect the fundamentals they have been practicing all year. Though the two bands have been practicing in their own ways, SU and Rutgers will be working together hours before Sunday’s game, said Brown, who is also a freshman political science major. Amanda Greenbacker, a freshman music education major and piccolo player, said the performance will present some challenges to

the band. Unlike previous performances that featured collegiate marching bands, SU will be playing music and running drill in tandem with Rutgers. “There will be over 400 band members on the field when we combine with Rutgers, so actually moving around on the field becomes a lot tougher,” she said. Time management has been a challenge that Greenbacker said the band members don’t typically face in the fall. Band members adjust their class schedules to accommodate rehearsals, but the post-season surprise brought on complications. “Balancing class work, homework and rehearsals over these past couple weeks has definitely been a challenge,” she said. “Everyone is very responsible — we have to be. Everyone knows what needs to be done and we do it, it’s just how it is.” In spite of new obstacles, the marching band is looking forward to Sunday, Brown said. He added that the game will reunite him with a friend he knows from high school, who is performing in Rutgers’ band. “I’ve come to respect this band even more than I originally did,” he said. “We are on a whole other level of entertainment now, and people are going to be looking at us in the future.”

Students prepare to celebrate Chinese New Year festivities By Danielle Roth contributing writer


ew Year’s Day may have been more than two weeks ago, but the Chinese New Year is just getting started. In Chinese culture, the lunar new year is celebrated with traditions, family gatherings and a Spring Festival Gala. Chancellor Kent Syverud likened the holiday’s significance to “the equivalent of Christmas, Rosh Hashanah or Eid al-Fitr,” in an email to Syracuse University students and faculty. The holiday emphasizes spending time with family and is celebrated for up to two weeks, depending on the regional traditions. The holiday festivities traditionally include setting off fireworks and having a family dinner on the eve of the new year. For those spending the holiday at Syracuse University, it can be difficult to adjust to spending it away from family. “During my freshman year, it was difficult. Now it’s just fine,” said Chloe Lou, a junior French and economics major. Lou would typically sit with her family and watch the Spring Festival Gala on China Central Television — China’s equivalent of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. This year, she is calling her family while streaming the televised celebration online, she said. She will also be a hostess at SU’s Spring Festival Gala, which will be

held by the Chinese Students and Scholars Association on Jan. 31. The gala will have several shows, including pop singers and entertainers. Goldstein Auditorium will be decorated with traditional Chinese New Year decorations, including red paper with phrases for good luck, peace or health written on them. In addition to the gala, there will also be a celebration thrown by the Hong Kong Cultural Organization in the Hall of Languages, Room 114 on Jan. 31, which will feature traditional Chinese desserts such as white radish cake. “We bring students who aren’t able to go home together. We are able to celebrate it without feeling homesick,” said Sharon Lee, president of the Hong Kong Cultural Organization and Asian Students of America. “There’s nothing to make up for that feeling of home and being with your family. But there’s the network and the quote-unquote family that we made here. It’s nice but in a different way.” Lee said around the Chinese holiday season, she begins to feel homesick. This will be her first Chinese new year away from her family. Although she still eats Chinese food from the dining hall, nothing can match the authenticity of having dinner at home. see new

Faculty visits 2014 Sundance Film Festival By Madysan Foltz asst. feature editor

You can’t spell Sundance without SU. But until this past week, Syracuse University had never been to the film festival. A select group of faculty members got together to take a trip to Park City, Utah for the 2014 Sundance Film Festival from Jan. 16-21, in preparation for future trips with students. Keith Giglio, an assistant television, radio and film professor; S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications Dean Lorraine Branham; Ann Spurgeon, regional director of development for Southern California; and Lynn Vanderhoek, assistant dean for advancement, went to Sundance as a way to increase recognition for Newhouse. Giglio said the trip was a way to raise awareness of the connections SU has in the entertainment industry. “We wanted to show that we’re one of the big film schools. Syracuse has very viable connections that often go overlooked,” Giglio said. According to Sundance Film Festival’s program guide, 200 films out of 12,000 submissions are selected annually for exhibition. There are 15 categories for submission, including premieres, shorts, Sundance kids, U.S. documentary, U.S. dramatic and world dramatic, among others. Michael Caplan, a Newhouse alumnus, acted as the executive producer on a documentary called “Remembering the Artist, Robert De Niro, Sr.,” and Justin Begnaud, a 2002 College of Visual and Performing Arts alumnus, was a producer on the film, “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night,” both of which were featured in previ-

ous Sundance Film festivals. Other movies featured at the festival previously that were works of SU alumni include “(500) Days of Summer” and “Winter’s Bone.” “SU is not just a presence on the creative front but also behind the scenes. [It] says to the world, we’re a very good film school,” Giglio said. “It’s a way of saying ‘we’re here,

SU is not just a presence on the creative front but also behind the scenes. [It] says to the world, we’re a very good film school.” Keith Giglio assistant television, radio and film professor

we’re good, you just might not realize we’re doing it.” Spurgeon added that this year’s trip is the beginning of a new program for Newhouse. He added that the school intends to bring students to the festival in the future for networking opportunities. In hopes of bringing the alumni together at the festival, Branham held a luncheon in Park City, Utah. Giglio, Spurgeon and Vanderhoek were surprised by how many people attended, which was nearly 50 alumni. “It was great. We had found out that [NYU] had 18 turnout their first year,” Spurgeon said. Although the student selection process for

future trips has not been set up yet, the student pool is expected to be as diverse as the alumni pool. Vanderhoek said it will not only be Newhouse students, but that students from the College of Visual Performing Arts and the Martin J. Whitman School of Management will likely also have a chance at attending next year. Vanderhoek added that she wants SU to gain the prominence of other popular film schools. “Wherever the industry gathers, there we want to be visible,” Vanderhoek said. “Many of our competitors have a presence — USC, NYC, Columbia. It was a great show to plant the flag for us.” They are in the works of planning more trips for students, including a trip to South by Southwest, a film, interactive and music festival located in Austin, Texas, as well as trips to other film festivals such as the Tribeca Film Festival. During the trip, Giglio said Chris McGurk, an alumnus and CEO of Cinedigm, mentioned something that resonated with him and furthers his efforts to help get Syracuse undergrads acquainted with the industry: “When I drive onto the Sony lot, I see a lot of USC and Columbia bumper stickers — the goal is to get SU bumper stickers up there too.”

Former MadTV comedian to perform stand-up at Funny Bone By Vanessa Salman Staff Writer


et ready to break your funny bone, Syracuse, because Pablo Francisco is coming to town this weekend. Francisco, the funny man behind Comedy Central specials “They Put it Out There” and “Ouch!” is coming to the Funny Bone Comedy Club and Restaurant, located on the third floor of Destiny USA this weekend. “You might also know him as ‘the movie trailer guy,’” Derek Rudy, Francisco’s publicist, said in an email. “You know Pablo best for all of his spot-on impersonations.” Attendees are in for a treat, as Francisco’s performances are known for keeping audiences laughing throughout the show. According to a press release, Francisco’s “unbelievable ability to physically morph himself into movie stars, singers, friends, family and a multitude of nationalities gives Pablo’s show a universal charm.” Francisco, a Tucson, Ariz. native of Chilean descent, got his first big break in the nineties

as a cast member on Fox’s “MADtv.” He is well known from his role in the sketch “Hell Date,” in which he channels Keanu Reeves, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Don LaFontaine, all in one skit. Shortly after showcasing his talents on the hit comedy show, Francisco landed a “Comedy Central Presents” half-hour special. From there, in 2001 and 2002, he went on the road with Carlos Mencia and the late Freddy Soto as a part of “The Three Amigos” comedy tour. The comedy connoisseur has accomplished many things through the duration of his career, selling out shows in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia, as well as the Melkweg Cultural Center in Amsterdam. Social media has helped Francisco gain an extensive fan following, with more than 13,000 subscribers and 2.5 million views on YouTube, 32,000 Twitter followers and 143,000 Facebook likes. Francisco is able to impersonate a wide variety of people. Aside from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Don LaFontaine, some of the famous voices he is well known for imper-

sonating include Celine Dion, Jerry Springer, Kermit the Frog and more. He is also known for lightheartedly poking fun at Spanish telenovelas, people and culture. “Pablo’s show is an entertaining and offthe-wall performance that delivers the laughs and points out the hilarious absurdities in an illogical, pop-culture obsessed world,” according to the press release. A frequent YouTube user, Francisco posts many performances such as “Celebrities at Subway,” in which he channels Ozzy Osbourne, Bill Cosby and Tom Cruise, among others, to show his take on how each would act if they were ordering at the sandwich shop. The video has more than 198,000 views. His “Arnold (Schwarzenegger) Narrates National Geographic” video has more 200,000 views. Francisco will be performing five shows throughout a window of three days, from Jan. 30 to Feb. 1, with two shows Friday and Saturday evenings. Tickets are $20 and are available for purchase online and by phone. Patrons must be 21 and over.

Columnist takes look at stereotypes inside Archbold Gymnasium


t’s late January, and any year-round gym-goer knows what that means — the New Year’s resolution phonies are dropping like flies, the crowd is thinning and the regulars are beginning to reveal themselves. Due to the fact that I’ve been reading some ethnographies for my writing class, I’ve developed an interest in studying small focus groups lately — albeit, not exactly in an academically-motivated, professionally-executed sort of way. It has been more of a creepy, leering-from-a-distance kind of situation. And I’ve acquainted myself quite nicely with the regulars at Archbold Gymnasium. I want to clear something up right off the bat. By giving the idea of a gym regular, I’m afraid people are going to get this image in their head of toned athletes, dedicated people who are in great shape and are constantly workin’ on their fitness. This isn’t exactly what I’m talking about. The list of folks at Archbold Gym reads like a who’s who of strangely motivated randos who have nothing to do with one another. Let’s take a look at skinny lifting boy. Skinny lifting boy deserves a whole separate character study. He’s such a heart-breaking

from page 11

new year Chengming Guo, a senior information technology and management major and president of CSSA, said the Chinese population on campus makes it easier to get used to celebrating the Chi-

tale. I’m sure he wants to get buff, and in a way, I want him to get buff too. I want a happy ending to his story. But due to the tremendous amount of skinny lifting boys that I always see, sadly taking off weights from the end of the bar as their tiny limbs fill with self-loathing, I sense a happy ending is not in sight. I imagine these boys have some self-confidence issues, or perhaps they’ve just landed themselves a girlfriend who is way too hot for them and they’re panicking about consummating that relationship with the body mass index of a toothpick. I say stop trying to be something you’re not, skinny lifting boy! The treadmills are waiting with open arms. And so is a career with a salary that will eventually make up for your physical shortcomings. Which brings me to way-too-attractivefor-the-gym girl. Her hair is straightened, her make-up is perfectly applied and her outfit

looks like Lululemon Athletica just threw up on her. This girl can usually be found doing about five minutes on the treadmill followed by one or two 8 lb. bicep curls and then calling it a day. To this girl I say, from the bottom of my heart that I hope you get hit on. I hope you get a phone number and it leads directly to a weekend of so much endorphin-filled sex that you can’t even do your usual five minutes on the treadmill the next morning. Because if it doesn’t, you wasted a monumental amount of time. I will say that this does not apply to attractive gym girls at every gym. If you’re hobnobbing with some of the social elites at the nicest gym in your neighborhood, well you keep doin’ you, ladies. But Archbold? Have some pride and set the bar higher. There is my least favorite person in the gym, girl-who-is-perpetually-kicking-myass-on-the-treadmill-next-to-me. You suck, girl. You’re really the worst. You’re there when I arrive and you’re there when I eventually give up, give you a dirty look and curse you under my breath while I leave. I’m not sure what the science is behind this

but she always seems to be Asian. An Asian freakin’ rockstar who haunts my dreams. And finally, the super old professor who is always lifting an absolutely shocking amount of weight. You, my friend, are kind of a weird dude. I feel like you might be in a financial situation where you could afford a noncampus gym membership, which gives me the impression that you’re making the conscious choice to work out in front of students. But you know what? I dig it. I think it’s a little inappropriate and awesome, and watching to see whether or not you make it through your overly ambitious sets has become one of my favorite gym activities. For grad students who are anxiously looking for focus groups to study, look no further. Weird people are everywhere — you don’t need to go any farther than the gym.

nese New Year without being in China. She will be making dumplings with friends as well as hosting the CSSA Gala to celebrate the holiday. Tony Lei, a senior finance and supply chain management major, would usually set off fireworks in the countryside in celebration of the lunar new year. But he hasn’t celebrated the holiday in China in seven years.

While he is not as homesick as some of the students who will be spending their first Chinese New Year outside of China, he said it would be great to have the experience again. Though he would like to experience the holiday again, Lei said Christmas has taken Chinese New Year’s place as the big holiday he celebrates each year. “When you’re away from

home, you should embrace something that is here, not try to re-enact something from home,” Lei said. “When I go back to China, I can miss Christmas out there.” Lei’s plans for the holiday include calling his family, but otherwise, his weekend will proceed ordinarily.

senior he is. He got going. That was the difference in the game.” Ennis whirled around the corners of Wake Forest’s step-behind 3-2 zone. He curled in from the corner and finished at the rim time after time. A flip shot over Arnaud-William Adala Moto. A slip between Moto and Travis McKie for a layup. A strong take to the rim in transition. Ennis scored five straight points for the Orange early in the second stanza and eight of 10 spanning the 11:04-7:18 marks. Even when Ennis appeared to tweak his ankle and Boeheim asked the referee to make sure his star freshman was OK, Ennis waved off the official. He stayed in for the entire game. “I’m kind of just trying to stay aggressive,” Ennis said. “I think the more teams that have to worry about me, the more open looks that C.J. (Fair) and Trevor (Cooney) will get.”

In total, he only handed out four assists. But part of that was due to the rest of the team’s 34.1 percent shooting from the field. Both teams combined to make an atrocious 6-of-34 triples. Ennis was the only player to make more than four field goals. And he made all six in the second half. “He just took the game over,” Boeheim said. “It was a struggling game and he took the game over.” After the game, Ennis slid a tall, white sock over his right ankle. The inside of it was red, but the swelling was minimal. He didn’t wear any ice on it and walked without a limp. The freshman who Boeheim once said saved the Orange three losses in non-conference play may have saved the team from a loss for the third straight game. After Wednesday’s game, Boeheim emphasized that Ennis, along with Cooney, have been the two key factors in Syracuse’s success. Said Boeheim: “That’s why we’re where we are.” | @Stephen_Bailey1

Wake Forest shot just 3-of-20 from beyond the arc — 15 percent — and struggled to generate any consistency from the field. Travis McKie himself shot 1-of-7.

HERO/ZERO HEROTyler Ennis Ennis scored 18 points and added five rebounds and four assists. He’s scored in double figures seven games in a row and has averaged nearly six assists during that span. Whenever Syracuse has needed a basket in the last three games, Ennis has been the one to provide it.

Miller-McIntyre came into the game averaging 15.2 points per game. Wednesday night, though, he was nearly invisible. The 6-foot-3 guard shot just 1-of-6 from the field and finished with four points. He only played 21 minutes and never got into a rhythm offensively.

Syracuse crowd surprises Boeheim

From the second Wake Forest won the opening tipoff, it was clear there were plenty of Syracuse fans among the 12,523 who filled Joel Coliseum on Wednesday night. They stood and clapped from the corner of the court until Rakeem Christmas dunked 1:25 into regulation. “I was shocked,” Boeheim said. “In Florida, we had about 4,000, but they all live down there. They’re all from Syracuse. I don’t know where these people came from.” The SU fans made their presence known throughout the game, hollering out the regular batch of chants as their team fought to beat Wake Forest 67-57 and snap the Demon Deacons’ 13-game home winning streak. The last time WFU lost at home was March 2, 2013 to Maryland. “I was really shocked,” he continued. “I was looking around a little bit. We go places — Philadelphia or Washington. There’s a lot of people there. But here, I was shocked that there were that many people here.” | @Stephen_Bailey1

managed just five on the night. “We knew they weren’t a great rebounding team so we definitely wanted to attack their offensive rebounding and defensive rebounding,” Grant said. Throughout the years, SU has always been at a mild disadvantage in rebounding coming out of a zone. But against the Demon Deacons, Syracuse got to experience the benefits from the other side. Wake Forest ran a 3-2 roughly half of the game, and the unmarked Orange bigs feasted on the 35 bricks the team shot during the game. “Our rebounding was good, but it was probably good because both teams kept missing,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said.

CENTER arinze ONUAKU was a prolific player for Syracuse, averaging double figures in three of his four seasons with the Orange. The professional ranks weren’t as kind, as Onuaku has played just three games in the NBA.

some deficiencies as a defender.” Next to a list of former Syracuse stars is a catalog of fallout stories.  Flynn was the sixth pick in the draft in 2009 only to leave the league by 2012. Melo was taken 22nd in 2012, played six games with the Boston Celtics and now runs with the NBA Developmental League’s Texas Legends. Second-round picks Kris Joseph and Andy Rautins played a combined 15 games and 78 minutes as rookies before taking to France and Spain, respectively. Demetris Nichols made three NBA stops in two seasons and now plays in Russia.  Duke has 15 active NBA players; North Carolina has 16; Kentucky, 21. Syracuse has as many active pros as Baylor, Colorado and the Ohio Valley Conference. “The game is faster, guys are bigger and guys are stronger,” former SU center Arinze Onuaku who now plays with the D-League’s Canton Charge, said in an email. “It’s an adjustment everyone has to make to move onto the professional level. “It’s two different games, college and the NBA. It’s two totally different games.” Then add in an extra obstacle — jumping back into man-to-man after playing it only in practice in Syracuse. Former Syracuse players said they were familiar with man-to-man after playing it growing up and in high school. But they did acknowledge there were a host of adjustments to make after college. Onuaku said the coverages at the pro level were extremely different from Syracuse’s zone. Devendorf rattled off backside rotations, doubling the post and helping on drivers as aspects of man-to-man that hindered him at times. Hart said that “cutting the court in half” had to be worked back into his defensive approach.  They all took a hiatus from traditional basketball at Syracuse and learned a system that doesn’t directly translate to the NBA. By itself, relearning backside rotations or the timing of double teams isn’t anything insurmountable. But when all the intricacies are added together, it becomes a sizable task. “I just think the defensive three seconds was big,” Johnson said. “We got to sit in the paint (at Syracuse). That was probably the main thing. I got caught a lot (in the NBA), just sitting there and waiting.” Some players handle the transition better than others.  Hart was a defensive stalwart at the top of Boeheim’s zone and is Syracuse’s all-time

steals leader. He played 10 NBA seasons as a role player and was known for his ability to lock down opposing guards. He’s part of the exception, not the rule.   “I’m a defender, I always have been,” Hart said. “I know I played in a zone in college but once I got to the pros, I was just the same defender individually. For me, it was about desire.” Like Hart, Triche played four seasons at the top of the zone at Syracuse. His gangly arms were a perfect fit next to Scoop Jardine and then Carter-Williams, but he’s not a player who naturally excels in a manto-man scheme.  Syracuse works on man-to-man in practice scrimmages, but Triche admitted that

“I don’t think playing zone hurts your ability to play man-to-man, but it doesn’t help. Playing zone can hide some deficiencies as a defender.” Brandon Triche former su guard

playing man in college games would have helped his development. After graduating from Syracuse last spring, Triche played with the Charlotte Bobcats in the NBA Summer League. He didn’t get signed and is now with Trento in Italy.  “We are just more technical with the fundamentals of the zone more than man-to-man,” Triche said.  “I personally wish I was able to practice man-to-man more. It’s a different focus and it doesn’t come as easy to me as it may come to others.” Then there are the four active players. Anthony is a prolific scorer. So is Waiters. Johnson’s offensive versatility makes him a good fit for the spacing of the NBA game and in half a season Carter-Williams has succeeded as a long point guard. But even they have their defensive deficiencies. According to the advanced statistic defensive rating, which measures the number of points a team gives up per 100 possessions, the Lakers are a more efficient defensive team without Johnson on the court. The 76ers are the same when CarterWilliams sits. Anthony, the ring leader of Syracuse’s small

While NBA success has been hard to come by, Syracuse has become a feeder for countries around the world.






Moving away from Syracuse and being focused at all times has been the hardest thing for me.

“Everywhere I went I had some success individually. Probably team-wise was in New Zealand, we won the championship there. Teamwise, that was probably the best place I went.”

Eric Devendorf former su guard

NBA contingent, leans on the defensive play of teammate Iman Shumpert. When Anthony plays with Shumpert, the Knicks’ defensive rating is considerably better. When Anthony’s on the court without him, the Knicks’ defensive

rating raises almost six points. The difference for these four is that their other strengths overshadow any defensive insufficiencies. Their transitions to the NBA weren’t seamless either, but show that for a

certain type of player, it is possible. “It wasn’t too much of an adjustment,” Johnson said. Easy for him to say. With the multitude of former SU players

that have and continue to enjoy successful careers abroad, there is a pipeline between Central New York and professional basketball. It just doesn’t lead to the NBA. | @dougherty_jesse

LAST IN LINE Of the top five winningest programs in NCAA history, Syracuse has the fewest active NBA players by a wide margin. The four players currently in the NBA are Carmelo Anthony, Wesley Johnson, Michael Carter-Williams and Dion Waiters

BECOMING THE NORM Ennis carries SU past WFU with 2nd half


Jensen resigns midseason By Stephen Bailey sports editor

By Stephen Bailey sports editor


INSTON-SALEM, N.C. — An air ball two feet long. A scoreboard that showed more team fouls than points. A head coach that watched in equal parts anger and disgust as his team missed 13 consecutive shots early in the first half. “It’s amazing,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “I came here and had the best Italian dinner last night. I thought during the game that was all I was going to get.” Syracuse’s slow start against Wake Forest on Wednesday night was arguably its worst of the season. With the score 12-6 Demon Deacons more than halfway through the opening frame, it appeared the SU head coach might fly back with nothing more than spaghetti and meatballs. But in a game where everything else was ugly, Boeheim’s freshman point guard Tyler Ennis was utterly magnificent in the second half. He finished with 16 of his 18 points on 6-of-8 shooting after the break, propelling the No. 2 Orange (20-0, 7-0 Atlantic Coast) to a 67-57 win over Wake Forest (14-7, 4-4). Ennis picked up right where he left off following clutch closeouts against thenNo. 20 Pittsburgh and Miami, helping Syracuse to match its best-ever start to a season. “Tyler Ennis played like a freshman in the first half,” Boeheim said. “In the second half he played like the see ennis page 15

Syracuse outrebounds Wake Forest by 20 in win By Stephen Bailey sports editor

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — What a difference two games can make. Eleven days ago, Syracuse was thoroughly embarrassed on the glass by Pittsburgh. The Panthers grabbed 16 offensive rebounds and outworked the Orange 35-24 overall. But in SU’s last two games combined, it has out rebounded Miami and Wake Forest by a combined

margin of 94-59. Wednesday’s performance, a 55-35 walloping, helped catalyze No. 2 Syracuse’s (20-0, 7-0 Atlantic Coast) 67-57 win over Wake Forest (14-7, 4-4). “It was a rough shooting night for our team as a whole,” SU forward Jerami Grant said, “so we definitely wanted to get some second-chance points in order to get some points on the board.” Eight Orange players finished with at least four rebounds, led by Grant who had 12 in what was his

fourth double-double of the season. C.J. Fair and Baye Moussa Keita grabbed eight misfires each, while Rakeem Christmas hauled in seven in just 20 minutes. While the rebounding edge only led to two additional second-chance points for SU, it kept the Demon Deacons from optimizing their offensive opportunities. “You can’t get out rebounded by 20 and then expect to win,” WFU forward Travis McKie said. “They

had 10 extra possessions.” Grant, Christmas and Co. put on a box-out clinic in the first half, holding the Demon Deacons to just two individual offensive rebounds — three times the ball deflected off an SU player out of bounds. Then in the second half alone, Syracuse hauled in eight offensive rebounds to the Demon Deacons’ nine defensive boards. WFU’s leading board-getter Devin Thomas (8.3) see rebounding page 16

Luke Jensen has resigned as head coach of the Syracuse tennis team, he confirmed to The Daily Orange on Wednesday. Jensen said he’s in the process of accepting an opportunity to return to professional tennis in the c o ac h i n g /me d i a realm and that the JENSEN decision was unrelated to any potential wrongdoing. “Timing is everything, defining moments in sports and life,” Jensen said. “I just felt that some things were in front of me and if I didn’t take the chance now, I was going to lose them.” In seven-plus years at the helm in Syracuse, Jensen led the Orange to a 106-57 record as the winningest coach in program history. After finishing 15-9 (7-1) in the team’s last Big East season in 2013, Syracuse started its first Atlantic Coast Conference season 0-3. Jensen will be replaced on an interim basis by associate head coach Shelley George, who Jensen brought in during his first year in 2007. Syracuse has already started an international search for a permanent replacement. “I’ve loved, it, but I’m just a big believer in evolving,” Jensen said. “Everybody has to continue to evolve.” Jensen said he could not elaborate on the career opportunity, but said it was crucial to step down now. “That window won’t open again for another year,” Jensen said. “It was just for me, looking back, listening to the opportunities and saying, ‘I don’t want to get too far into the season because then it hurts everybody.’” Jensen said he turned down similar opportunities in past years because he was on the “Syracuse mission.” “I think I was in a different place,” Jensen said. The Orange will play its first match without Jensen at Ohio State on Friday at 1 p.m. Said Jensen: “It wasn’t an easy decision, but I wouldn’t say it was last minute. It was something that builds over time.” @Stephen_Bailey1
