DJ’s hosts 1st ‘18 and older’ night By Meredith Newman ASST. NEWS EDITOR

DJ’s On the Hill became the first Marshall Street bar to host a night dedicated to underage students when it held an “18 and older” night last Tuesday. The “18 and older” night will be held every Tuesday, said Dean Whittles, owner of the bar. He said last Tuesday hundreds of students came to DJ’s. The idea came after DJ’s hired an outside, local agency, Spectrum Security, to handle security at the bar. Spectrum Security guards now control the entrance and the overall security of customers, which mostly consists of students, Whittles said. Whittles and DJ’s managers then started brainstorming with Spectrum about how underage

On Saturday, Emily Becker and several of her friends packed up her Toyota Scion and hit the road for President Barack Obama’s second inauguration in Washington, D.C. “We are all seniors and wanted to take a little adventure,” said Becker, a political science and policy studies major. Becker was one of several Syracuse University students who traveled to the capital, staying overnight with friends and family, and then fighting for space amid the crowd to watch Obama take the presidential oath of office for his second term.

Gala marks political triumphs By Shannon Hazlitt STAFF WRITER

stacie fanelli | staff photographer 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East Union hosted an inaugural ball at the Oncenter Monday night. The gala recognized the achievements of local politicians such as U.S representative Dan Maffei and Assemblyman Al Stirpe, in addition to those of President Barack Obama.

Satirical news outlet prepares to launch website By Annie Palmer STAFF WRITER

When three friends gave rise to the idea for a satirical news source, it began as an outlet to make fun of S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications students that take themselves too seriously. Since then, the idea has evolved into The Kumquat, which presents a variety of campus news in a comedic fashion. Founded by Syracuse University sophomores Sarah Schuster, Alex Kuzoian and Nicolas Sessler, The Kumquat was created as an alternative to other campus news sources, and a way to play upon the stereotypes that exist throughout the student body, Sessler said in an email. “We all noticed there was a lack of satirical news on campus in a multimedia format,” Kuzoian said. “So in the spring of 2012, Sarah was the one who really got the ball rolling on it. Nick and I were busy playing Mario Kart and stuff.” Many of the stories The Kumquat creates parallels or exaggerates actual stories or issues on campus, Kuzoian said. An example of this was a video posted on The Kumquat’s YouTube channel, which showed the Dalai Lama holding a “rager” during his visit to SU.

Though The Kumquat attempts to make light of the stereotypes that exist on campus, it is always conscious of possibly offending its audience, Kuzoian said. This same issue arose for Over the Hill, a satirical news source that operated on campus until 2005, but was shut down for publishing offensive content. Members of The Kumquat describe themselves as a comedy group, and remind their audience members to not take anything too seriously, Kuzoian said. The show’s goal is never to offend anyone intentionally, he said. Despite this, the group did come under fire for a satirical picture posted on its Facebook page, said Mark DiBona, a member of The Kumquat. The picture depicted Student Association President Allie Curtis shaking hands with Osama bin Laden, he said. Many of the editing sessions serve to prevent the circulation of overly offensive material, DiBona said. Ideas are converted into loose scripts, which are then critiqued and rewritten into final versions, he said. “I think it’s impossible to do the kind of comedy we’re doing without offending anyone,” Sessler said. “I’m not afraid to be offensive, because

“I think it’s impossible to do the kind of comedy we’re doing without offending anyone. I’m not afraid to be offensive, because that’s what makes people think.” Nick Sessler


that’s what makes people think.” The Kumquat is often compared to The Onion, a professional satirical news organization, Sessler said. Both organizations use humor to convey greater messages, but The Kumquat tries to tailor its stories to campusrelated news, he said. Through word-of-mouth and social media, The Kumquat is quickly gaining a larger audience, Kuzoian said. The group is set to launch its website next week, he said. It will provide a more centralized location for content and a platform to share satirical articles instead of just videos.


While most inaugural festivities took place on Monday in Washington, D.C., Syracuse community members filled the Oncenter Complex to celebrate their hard work and success in the recent election season. 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, a union of health care workers, hosted the Inaugural Ball, which began at 6 p.m. and lasted until midnight. Allison Krause, communications coordinator for the union and planning committee member, said it was the first time the union has held an inaugural gala to celebrate the victories of President Barack Obama and local candidates such as Rep. Dan Maffei and state assemblyman Al Stirpe. Krause said the event was organized to recognize the effort members of the United Healthcare Workers East and other organizations have put into the recent campaigning


Local Starbucks, grocery store accept SUpercard By Erin Kelly ASST. COPY EDITOR

A Starbucks location and grocery store accepting SUpercard Food money opened in the newly renovated Campus West apartments, just in time for the start of the spring semester. The Brewster/Boland/Brockway Complex lobby was filled with students carrying Starbucks coffee cups the first few days back from Winter Break. Many students were surprised to learn of the new additions, since they hadn’t seen much advertising for them. “There was only a small sign outside of Brewster with the logo and an arrow pointing in the direction of the store,” said Ella D’Amico, a freshman biology major. “It’s such a nice convenience, but it took me a few days to catch on to the new location. I found out through friends.” The idea for the grocery store and Starbucks shop was born out of convenience for students who are farther away from other coffee locations on campus, as BBB is on the far edge of campus, said Lynne Mowers, secretary to the director of

Syracuse University Food Services. The grocery store has more than 2,000 name-brand products ranging from laundry products to fresh produce and seasonal produce provided by local farms, according to the SU Food Services website. The opening of the new stores has been in the making for two years, and Mower said she is happy students are excited about the new addition and are spreading the news. Mowers said in an email the new addition came about when SU Food Services started looking to add more food options to West Campus. With the growth and expansion happening due to construction, it seemed like the ideal time to look for a way to add services and give students something different, she said. The Starbucks and grocery store join three other convenience stores on campus that accept SUpercard Food and Plus money: FoodWorks in the basement of Graham Dining Center, Food Works II in Ernie Davis Hall and South Campus Express in the Goldstein Student Center, Mowers said.

Faculty group organizing to support SU Fossil Fuel Divestment campaign Last semester, Syracuse University students joined a nationwide movement to pressure colleges and universities to divest their endowments from fossil fuel companies. I’d like to encourage faculty members, and members of the administration, to get behind this campaign. We do not need to look far to see the devastating effects of global warming. Many of our students and their families were in the path of Hurricane Sandy, a massive storm that caused more than 100 deaths, left thousands homeless and will carry a price tag of more than $50 billion. In our warming world, we can expect many Hurricane Sandys, as well as widespread droughts like those afflicting much of the

United States last year. The droughts, affecting more than 60 percent of the country, caused record-high prices for agricultural staples such as corn and soybean. While many Americans can weather these price spikes, most of the world’s poor cannot. When Bill McKibben visited campus last semester, he presented the terrifying math of climate change. Fossil fuel companies have in their reserves the equivalent of 2,795 gigatons of carbon, five times what is “safe” to burn. To protect the natural systems we rely on, and ensure a habitable planet for our students and their children, we must find a way to keep 80 percent of known fossil fuel reserves in the ground.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR You don’t need to be a cynic to conclude fossil fuel companies will burn every last atom of carbon if given the chance. They’ve poured millions of dollars into campaigns that question the existence of global warming and millions more to ensure Congress does not awct in a meaningful way on climate change. It is time to send them a clear message that they are acting irresponsibly and immorally. Syracuse University can send this message by divesting from fossil fuels. We are already a signatory to the American College and Univer-

sity President’s Climate Commitment, and have pledged to become carbon neutral by 2040. Yet we profit from fossil fuel companies through our investments. This is hypocritical at best and immoral at worst. Let’s take the money we are currently investing in fossil fuels and reinvest it in clean energy technologies. A group of faculty is organizing to support the SU Fossil Fuel Divestment campaign. If you are interested in joining us, please contact me at

Anniversary of Roe v. Wade calls for celebration, continuation of legacy Why the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade means a new beginning: Jan. 22, 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, a decision that legalized abortion in the United States. This decision single-handedly has saved lives, and now it is our job to honor this historic event. Many people my age don’t know what it was like to grow up without access to safe and legal abortion, and I hope that my sister will grow up this way, too. According to a 2012 Gallup poll, 77

percent of Americans think abortion should be legal in some or all cases, though the language we use to discuss abortion no longer reflects this statistic. Actually, the ways in which people discuss abortion has changed entirely. More than ever, I hear people discussing abortion without using the terms “pro-choice” or “pro-life.” Labels simply do not explain the complexity of this health matter and cannot be defined within the limitations of two terms. Abortion is a deeply personal health matter, plain and simple.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Across the nation, we are united through our shared belief in access to safe and legal health services – including abortion. We also know that our politicians should not make these health decisions for women. Every woman has her own story, and we don’t walk in her shoes. Therefore, as we celebrate the 40th anni-

versary of Roe v. Wade, we are beginning a new conversation about abortion and women’s health. These issues aren’t so black and white, they never have been, and now we’re speaking up about it. College students like me care about continuing the legacy of Roe.

Domestic police departments’ use of drones should be limited

any Americans are aware the United States employs drones in the Middle East, but now, there’s a chance drones could be used by police domestically for surveillance. Despite the few benefits drones could have, the potential to invade privacy should keep them barred from domestic use. Drones are unmanned aircraft that are typically small and disguised. They are equipped with cameras so pilots can remotely fly them. They can also be armed, though it is unlikely they will have weapons when used domestically. During the last several years in the war on terror, the Obama administration has preferred the use of drones because they do not put American lives at risk. It’s also easier to justify killing American citizens abroad labeled as terrorists, because court rulings deem it acceptable. States across the country are considering using this technology for surveillance. In 2012, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security started the $4-million Air-based Technologies Program, which provides grants to local police departments to purchase drones.


to the left, to the left In Florida, Orange County recently spent $50,000 to purchase the aircraft. State Sen. Joe Negron has proposed legislation that restricts what drones can be used for and when they can be flown. “Drones are fine to kill terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but they shouldn’t be hovering in the sky, monitoring Floridians,” he told the Florida Public Radio Network. “That’s not something that we believe is an appropriate role for government.” New York City Police Department Commissioner Ray Kelly said the NYPD might have interest in the technology. NYPD spokesman Paul Browne told CBS

New York, “Drones aren’t that exotic anymore. Brookstone sells them. We’ve looked at them but haven’t tested or deployed any.” Though this technology is sold in stores for private consumers, there has yet to be any determination of in what instances police can use them. Professional drones are also far more advanced – capable of more than capturing what is seen on video. Some are able to deliver infrared images to detect heat sources. Recent technological advances have challenged an individual’s privacy. In 2012, the Supreme Court ruled police cannot put a tracking system on suspects’ cars without first obtaining a warrant. Prior to the ruling, police in some states could track any individual’s car for whatever reason. Just like tracking, drones are a topic that will need further rulings from the court. There is a high likelihood their use could compromise privacy at the cost of increased security. The case of tracking is one where police overstretched their power because there were few rules about who could be tracked. There is

potential for the same abuse of power in the case of drones. There are some advantages that drones could have. Negron’s bill allows drone usage for the vague category of “national security,” in cases of child abductions and when a judge issues a search warrant. These are all instances where there is a specific instance and scope to surveillance. However, as the law is now, drones could be used without a specific purpose. This should concern the public. As of now there are too many unknowns and very few rules defined. The American Civil Liberties Union reported in 2011 “routine aerial surveillance in American life would profoundly change the character of public life in the United States.” While the prospect of this routine surveillance may seem remote, steps should be taken to ensure their use is limited.

Schine renovations should include larger grocery store The Syracuse University Bookstore in the basement of the Schine Student Center is moving to a location on University Avenue, which will free 30,000 square feet within the building. The best use for this space is to build a larger grocery store exclusively for the student community at Syracuse University. The university has hired the Architecture Research Office to facilitate the Schine Renovation Feasibility Study, which will investigate how the building could better serve SU students. The study, which will include surveys and recommendations via social media, will be completed by summer 2013. There are no grocery stores in walking proximity to students living on Main Campus. Though there are FoodWorks locations throughout campus, students have little variety and limited accessibility to fresh produce. A grocery store that serves as an expanded version of FoodWorks or South Campus Express could

EDITORIAL by the daily orange editorial board meet those needs. Having a grocery store in the center of campus would also eliminate having to travel to a Wegmans, Tops or Target. Though bus transportation to these stores is an asset to students, the availability of more grocery locations would be greater convenience for students. Creating more dining and food areas is a concept the feasibility study is exploring. But with many dining locations all ready accessible throughout campus, a designated grocery store for Main Campus residents would be the most beneficial. Ultimately, whatever plans are finalized, the space should be designated to improve campus living for students. The construction of a larger grocery store in Schine is the best way the building could be enhanced to better meet the needs of the SU student body.

Media too focused on breaking Te’o news first; speed should not trump accuracy


anti Te’o’s fake, deadundead-then-dead-again girlfriend is far and away the most depressing story of 2013. Though it’s only January, I think it’ll be hard to top. Though we should not care about this story in the first place, it represents a greater flaw in our society. I won’t recount all of the soul-crushingly moronic details of this story. No matter what actually happened, Te’o is either a gigantic doofus, or a conniving, manipulative ambition-hound – and both are pretty disappointing. It’s not the first time a professional athlete has deceived us – hint: rhymes with “Flance Blarmstrong.” But it’s the media that takes home the “I’m Terrified Of Where We’re Going As A Culture” award on this

one. Because wow, did they blow this? And wow, are they making it worse as they try to collectively make it better? Eating up the beautiful, made-up saga of Te’o and Lennay Kekua’s relationship, the cancer of getting it first versus getting it right has grown. Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated magazine interviewed Te’o about the story a mere two hours before his deadline. Thamel was seemingly unperturbed by the utter lack of evidence that Kekua ever existed – no record of an accident, no records of her at Stanford University, nothing. But no matter, right? It’s a great story and someone else might have gotten it sooner. Time is always short on the 24-hour news cycle. Once the hoax – or conspiracy, or CIA cover-up, or whatever – came out,

world on a string our fair fourth estate turned into a Marx Brothers sketch beyond imagination. Te’o got Jeremy Schaap and ESPN to agree to a private off-camera interview with an attorney present. Who else gets that? The president of the United States couldn’t negotiate those terms. Schaap then relayed the discussion to viewers live on “SportsCenter,” like a go-between messenger in the middle of dying middle school romance. The

highlight of this grotesque exercise: a voice-cracking, David Schwimmeresque moment where Schaap defended Te’o and said, “The way he explained it was very convincing.” Schaap went on to praise Te’o for how calm and collected he seemed in the face of such adversity. Schaap also volunteered that he believed Te’o’s wild story, even though no one asked for his opinion. Really? I think I speak for the whole country when I say I am relieved Jeremy Schaap was not covering the Watergate break-in for The Washington Post in 1972. Now, Te’o embarks on his public rehabilitation tour. His first oncamera interview will be with Katie Couric, known for asking tough questions – who could forget her intel-

lectual jousting with the cagey Sarah Palin? One catch: reported that Couric and Te’o happen to share the same publicist. In the end, it is pretty sad we care so much about a linebacker’s made-up girlfriend when we really should care about how our journalists, the vaunted vanguard of the people’s truth, screwed up a basic human interest story in such monumental fashion.

Dream” speech, the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the second inauguration of the first AfricanAmerican president, Barack Obama. Brock was chosen to speak by the Hendricks Chapel Celebration Committee, which organized the event. Hendricks started the MLK Jr. Celebration 28 years ago under Dean Richard Phillips, said the current dean, Tiffany Steinwert. The 2013 MLK Jr. Celebration event was created to honor King and the message of social justice, peace, equality and contribution to the community, Steinwert said. “This is Syracuse University at it’s best,” she said at the event. “I look around and think this is our beloved community. This is who we are – it couldn’t be better.” Brock said in her speech the progress from 50 years ago to present day is evident, but there are still people in society judged by their race, socio-economic standing, sexual orientation and heritage. Honoring Martin Luther King Day has become a common courtesy in American culture, and lacks sincerity, she said. “When viewed through the lenses of the bigotry and hatred – race, class and money still matter in this country,” Brock said. Contributing to the community is an important part of King’s message, and challenges citizens to view the world differently, Brock said. The true test comes not when responding to those with power or status, but responding to those who have no power or status, she said. “We are one nation, under God,” she said. “Not just for some, but for all.”

Brock discussed the importance of helping others succeed so that society as a whole can succeed. She used an African proverb about bigger elephants helping smaller elephants cross over a raging river. “Once you make it, don’t forget to turn around and help somebody else cross over,” she said. “Service to others is the rent we pay for the space we occupy.” The way to improve society and ignite change is through the people, which must be a collective goal and challenge citizens, Brock said. “My friends, it is your time, your moment in history to make a difference,” she said. “Leadership is not a title, it is an action. Courage cannot skip this generation.” Brock received a standing ovation that lasted for several minutes. The event also included an annual dinner, which featured a variety of comfort foods ranging from fried chicken, to macaroni and cheese, to sweet potato pie. Tables were spread out across half of the Dome field where SU faculty and students, Syracuse community members and other guests sat together. The OneWorld Dancers and ADANFO African Drummers commenced the celebration, followed by a commemorative video about King. SU’s MLK Community Choir, which consists of members of different choirs from the Syracuse area, performed “Life Ev’ry Voice and Sing.” Steinwert, dean of Hendricks, led an invocation in which she incorporated King’s words. She called on the audience to listen to his message and find a new way to advocate for peace and justice, saying “tomorrow is today.” “There is such a thing as being too late,” Steinwert said. Leadership and action in the community, which both Brock and King promoted, were honored with the presentation of the 2013

yuki mizuma | staff photographer RONALD JAMES-TERRY TAYLOR , a sophomore in the College of Arts and Sciences, performs a spoken word piece called “Mountaintop” at the MLK Jr. Celebration. Unsung Hero Awards. The awards are presented each year to individuals who have worked to make a difference in the community without widespread recognition. The 2013 recipients included JoVan Collins, Engineers Without Borders, Brenda Muhammad and Adena Rochelson. Collins, a lifelong Syracuse resident, was nominated for her commitment to volunteering Citizen-Action and the Syracuse City School District, even in the face of personal adversity. Adena Rochelson, an eighth grader from Fayetteville, created Operation Soapdish, and collected 6,693 toiletry items for people in need in the Syracuse area. Brenda Muhammad is an active volunteer who works with organizations such as the Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity and the International League of Muslim Women. Engineers Without Borders, a student organization at SU, received an Unsung Hero Award for designing a kitchen and dining facility for Into Abbas Arms Orphanage in South Kinangop, Kenya. The orphanage will now be able to adopt 10 more children with the additional space. “This event just makes me grateful and

aware of all the people helping Syracuse and the community,” said Maria Lopez, an academic counselor in the Office of Supportive Services. Students said they appreciated the effort SU has put into organizing an event celebrating diversity and multiculturalism. “I’m very happy SU acknowledges MLK day with such a big event,” said Leslie Walters, a sophomore broadcast and digital journalism major who wore traditional African dress and a headpiece to the event. To see the campus come together to celebrate African-American culture means a lot, since it is not commonly seen as a general campus movement, she said. For some, like Gladys McElroy, who has been a Syracuse resident for 56 years, that change has been a long time coming. McElroy is originally from Arkansas, and saw first-hand the struggles of the civil rights movement in this country when the National Guard entered her hometown. “I’ve seen the dream come true for myself and for others,” McElroy said. “All problems belong to us. Where there is unity, there is strength.”


Though Dave Shabshis, a freshman in the College of Arts and Sciences, liked the idea of an “18 and older night,” he said he doesn’t think DJ’s should hold it more often during the week. “They should only have it be one night because otherwise it will be too crowded,” he said. “There will be too many people there to enjoy it.” Shabshis, who was at DJ’s last Tuesday, said the bar was very crowded for a weeknight. He said he doesn’t think the other Marshall Street bars will follow DJ’s “18 and older night” because they serve “older crowds.” Harry’s Bar, however, might be a possibility, Shabshis said. Whittles said everyone was happy about the idea. He has received numerous phone calls from underage students thanking him for “a place that they can go.” “I wanted to create a safe environment so that you guys can walk to, be with your friends and still enjoy SU night life,” he said. Whittles added he is encouraging feedback, but viewed last Tuesday night as a success and will continue “18 and over night” every Tuesday. Said Whittles: “Let’s be honest: this is all about you guys being safe and you guys having a place to enjoy yourselves.”


students could be a part of Syracuse nightlife. “Since we now have a professional, licensed security company, I decided to try out Tuesday nights to give the underage kids somewhere to go that is still safe, and you guys can still mingle,” Whittles said. “And I know you all like to dance, so that’s where it all came from.” So that DJ’s can avoid any “incidents on the Hill,” wristbands are given to patrons 21 and older, and those underage are stamped, Whittles said. Spectrum maintains the floor and “ensures that the underage are not illegally drinking.” On any given night, DJ’s has five to six security guards, Whittles said. “I felt as though it was time to have professional people that really know what they’re doing and can really handle a crowd in any type of situation to keep students safe,” he said. Sawyer Block, a freshman in the School of Information Studies, went to DJ’s last Tuesday and said he thought the “18 and older” night was a good idea for the bar. “It was really crowded when I was there,” Block said. “But despite that, the security was pretty smooth.” @MerNewman93

hether with pictures of puppies or misspelled status updates, many begin and end their day on Facebook. The many ways to customize a user’s profile allows “friends” to gain vast insight into his or her life and interests. Last week, Facebook introduced Graph Search as a new way to “find people who share your interests.” Facebook product manager Keith Peiris said in a video on Facebook’s website that Graph Search could solve “the nuanced and social questions that you wouldn’t typically ask a search engine.” Search queries such as “friends who have been to Fenway Park” or “friends of friends who attended Syracuse University” demonstrate the power of this new Facebook feature. Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a video that Graph Search is the third pillar of the Facebook ecosystem – the other two pillars are Newsfeed and Timeline. The Newsfeed feature allows users to explore what is happening and being shared by friends. Timeline, launched in September 2011, affords users the ability to curate events and posts as they happen. Graph Search provides a dialogue between corporations and consumers. According to Facebook, the social network has surpassed one trillion connections between corporate brands, personal profiles and fan pages. When Graph Search finishes its testing, companies and consumers alike will discover if the new function can help them build connections. While social media data is generated on an endless news cycle, it has been challenging for marketers to

This new search capability places Facebook in the middle of the fight for personalization. Netflix and Amazon have spent years perfecting their recommendation algorithms in order to keep customers coming back. In addition, Google revealed Search Plus Your World last year, which allows queries to include relevant data from your Google+ network, according to a Jan. 19 PCWorld article. Graph Search has been met with some negativity. As Facebook migrates toward becoming a major search engine player, it continues to grapple with the struggles of privacy controls and customization for its users. On Dec. 12, Mashable reported Facebook now mandates that all profiles must be searchable. As a compromise, the new privacy tools allow users to better control what personal information is available for friends and subscribers to see. During Zuckerberg’s keynote speech, shown on Facebook’s website, he said more than 10 percent of Facebook’s computing power is devoted to privacy system checks for its users.

Company stock prices fell slightly following the announcement of Facebook’s new search tool, Graph Search. Despite optimistic initial projections, Facebook stock fell from its initial price offering and continues to fluctuate.


MAY 18, 2012 Facebook goes public

Facebook stock was initially valued at $38 a share when it became a publicly traded company, and opened to the market at $42.05 a share. However, shares closed at $38.23 and continued to fall in the following days.


SEPT. 4, 2012 Stock dips to lowest price

Facebook stock closed at $17.73 a share. In response to this significant drop, the comany announced that CEO Mark Zuckerberg would not sell his shares or options for a year — a move equivalent to the repurchase of several million shares.


OCT. 31, 2012 Stock falls as employees sell

Employee shares were locked up after Facebook’s initial public offering, meaning employees were not allowed to sell their shares until after the lockup expired on Oct. 29. Hurricane Sandy closed down Wall Street for two days, so employees were not able to sell their stock until Oct. 31. That morning, Facebook stock fell to $21.04 per share. The drop indicates Facebook employees sold off their shares to looking to decrease their holdings because they did not think prices would rise.


JAN. 15, 2013 Graph Search unveiled

Facebook’s new tool fell short of expectations. As a result, share prices fell 3 percent from a 15 percent climb since the beginning of the year to close at $30.10 on Jan. 15.

season through activities like phone banks, fundraisers and door-to-door canvassing. “Some of our members here were given complimentary tickets tonight to thank them for their hard work,” she said. The Syracuse-based Brownskin Band filled the large, elegantly decorated Oncenter ballroom area with classic rhythm and blues hits from artists like Marvin Gaye. The event cost $10 for union members and $20 for non-members. It offered hors d’oeuvres, desserts and a cash bar. Although there were similar inaugural galas in Rochester and Buffalo, also hosted by United Healthcare Workers East, Krause said the gala at the Oncenter had the highest attendance. She said more than 450 tickets were sold to members and non-members. “I would say it is a really good mix of 1199 members and community members,” she said. She also said many local politicians, like Mayor Stephanie Miner, assemblyman Samuel Roberts and Stirpe the assemlyman, showed their support and attended the event. “It gives people like me an opportunity to thank a lot of the labor who helped a lot in this campaign,” Stirpe said.

Marty Liquori, chairman for the maintenance and clerical division of the union at Crouse Hospital, said he thinks the event is a very effective way to make the community more aware of Obama’s inaugural address in Washington, D.C. “I think it’s a good way to bring a national election home to the community,” he said. He also said he thinks having a local celebration for the inauguration allows friends to celebrate together. Syracuse University basketball player Michael Carter-Williams was also in attendance. He said he thought the event was significant because it allowed students to see different faces in the community and learn more about events beyond the SU campus. “I feel that it is all a part of history,” CarterWilliams said. “I just wanted to be involved and have a good time.” Daniel Anyaegbunam, an SU football player, attended the event with other members of the team. By attending the gala, Anyaegbunam said, he realized that students can implement change by becoming more aware of the community and voting. “It’s important because we are the nextcoming generation,” Anyaegbunam said. “So we should get out there.”

Becker and her friends did not have official tickets to the inauguration, but figured they could find a general standing area. What they initially thought was an entrance to the National Mall turned out to be an entrance for the parade route. “Our little mishap turned out to be cool,” said Stuart Lang, a senior computer science major who was part of the group. “We ended up on the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and 10th Street. It was only like, 20 feet away from where Biden and Obama stepped out of their motorcade.”

But because of their error, the group was unable to watch the swearing-in process on the steps of the Capitol, Becker said. While they could hear the ceremony happening, there were no screens set up on Pennsylvania Avenue to watch. “We tried streaming the event on our phones, but it lagged and was blurry,” Lang said. “It was just really cool being in D.C. for my first inauguration. It was also the first time visiting the city.” Olivia O’Connell, a senior Italian and psychology major, was able to get a good spot on the National Mall. O’Connell traveled down with Becker and their friends for her first inauguration, and spent the night before with her friend at George Washington University. “My friend and I got there at around 9 a.m., and there was still enough space for us to get close to a Jumbotron,” O’Connell said in an

The crowd got pretty cramped leading up to 11:30 a.m., when the ceremony started.” As the politicians made their entrances, the crowd erupted in cheers, said O’Connell. The Clinton family elicited the loudest applause, she said. Keith Holmes, a senior mechanical engineering major, also attended the inauguration. He attended Obama’s 2009 inauguration as well. “Last inauguration felt really rushed for me,” he said. “The crowd was smaller this time and we got to spend the day with some great people and make some new friends.” While the inauguration featured the typically cold January weather of Washington, D.C., it did not bother most. “The weather was fine; being packed in like sardines makes even cold days tolerable,”

and the opportunity to expand services to West Campus seemed like the right time to begin a partnership with the company. Abby Rosenblum, a sophomore broadcast and digital journalism major and employee with SU Food Services, said she was excited to start her new job as a grocery store cashier. “It’s such a nice place for students to have nearby. It takes me two minutes to walk to work and so far the lines have been nothing,” Rosenblum said. “I wish they had this last semester.”

Jonathan Lee, a sophomore policy studies and information management and technology major, said in an email. “Everyone was fine but it was not always cordial; I saw a protestor near me on Capitol Hill climb a tree and security was unable to get him out.” This was Lee’s first time attending an inauguration. Said Lee: “The crowd was awesome. It made me so proud to be an American to see hundreds of thousands of people turn out to celebrate our democracy.”

Snapchat craze reaches Syracuse University campus, students embrace phenomenon By Amanda Day



ollege students across the country are asking the question: “Why simply text when you can snap a picture with your message?” “It’s easier for me to Snapchat someone than text sometimes,” said Elyse Viviano, a sophomore communications design major. “There are so many people in my phone that

I Snapchat that I would never text in a million years.” Viviano says she likes Snapchat because it is less serious than traditional texting. The art of Snapchatting is becoming as normal as sending a quick text, and students at Syracuse University are no exception to this national trend. Snapchat is a smartphone application that allows users to send a picture with added text that will

only appear for one to 10 seconds once opened. After that, it’s gone forever. The app is designed for instant photo-sharing. Released in September 2011 by a Stanford University student, it has been growing increasingly popular ever since. Students can be seen all around campus, in hallways and even classrooms making strange faces at their phones and Snapchatting their friends.

Snapchat is known for being one of the latest apps to reach a phenomenal level of success, but the app is also known for more controversial reasons. Although Snapchatted photos are on a timer before they are instantly deleted, users can take a screenshot, saving the photo to the receiver’s phone. If a screenshot is taken of a Snapchat, a notification is sent to the sender to alert them

of the recorded shot. For these reasons, Snapchat has gained a reputation as a platform for “sexting.” According to an article on CNN. com, several Snapchat-themed blogs have released fullly and semi-nude images of Snapchat users. One blog titled “Snapchat Sluts” put out an open call for scandalous shots, according to the article. The virtual line of security of


John Brown’s Body entertains crowd with eclectic music By Max Antonucci STAFF WRITER

In the small concert hall, the crowd was in a state of relaxed anticipation as the band slowly got ready on stage. “The last couple shows here were rocking,” said Tommy Benedetti, drummer of John Brown’s Body. “I see good things for this evening.” In the five minutes before they started, large groups came swarming into the building, coats falling off of overloaded hooks on the wall. Finally, amid the excited chatter, John Brown’s Body began to play.

John Brown’s Body kicked off their New England area tour at The Westcott Theater Friday at 11 p.m. Opening for the band were House on a Spring and Root SHOCK. The music’s vibrations went through the walls and shook each person’s body, their song “Ameliorate” gaining energy in a steady crescendo. The crowd, now about 500-members large, began moving in gentle currents back and forth, listening to the well-known band. Elliot Martin, the band’s lead singer, stepped to the front of the stage with his dreadlocks whipping the air.

“They’re not totally infiltrated with all dub yet. They still maintain that old Reggae feel.”

Erica Den


“How you feeling tonight?” he yelled to the crowd, who responded with a crashing wave of cheers and whistles.

Martin began singing in powerful bursts with “Invitation,” which strengthened as the song went on. The music came in a steady, powerful stream of reggae and dubstep, with soulful lyrics and rapid beats that quickly absorbed the crowd. “It’s rootsie reggae, but it’s still upbeat,” said Mooney Faugh, a member of Subsoil, a band that has opened for the band in the past. “Party Reggae with a message: Peace.” John Brown’s Body is noted for their music’s unconventional blend of old and new. When it was first formed in 1995,

the band’s music focused on old-school reggae. As they grew, the band steadily became more progressive and incorporated more modern elements into their music, such as dubstep. The band members refer to their style as “future roots music.” Erica Den, a friend of the band’s keyboardist Jon Petronzio, said while she enjoys seeing the band evolve and the music change, she still enjoys the old-school aspects the most. “They’re not totally infiltrated with all dub yet,” Den said. “They

If you ask Matthew Plotnick how his mind works, he may point to the SpongeBob SquarePants quote he has tattooed on his back. “It’s what really makes SpongeBob great,” said Plotnick, a junior English and textual studies major. “I’ve always loved SpongeBob, but as I got older I began to notice the little things that give it a level of intellect far beyond the age group it was intended for.” Or in an effort to provide a symbolic but more confusing answer, he could lift up his shirt to show you Picasso’s painting “The Acrobat” somersaulting across his ribcage. Each tattoo lends a hand in explaining the intellectual Plotnick — who he is, what he likes and where he’s been. But more importantly, his body art is an expression of his thought process, a portrait of his musings and the lens through which he views society. Plotnick, who grew up in an Orthodox Jewish home, would usually be a rare candidate for a tattoo, as it is taboo in the Jewish community. But after spending his freshman year abroad in Israel, he transferred to Syracuse University. After he received his first tattoo — the Batman symbol on his left calf — in fall 2011 at Halo tattoo on Marshall Street, he returned to the

pul p @ da ilyor a

shop three more times throughout the school year. The SpongeBob quote and the Picasso painting are the most recent additions. “I always wanted a tattoo. So far every one I’ve gotten has been under $150, but I’m building to something bigger,” Plotnick said. “But having Orthodox Jewish parents is a tough situation. My mother knows out of courtesy, but has kept my father in the dark, as he would be too devastated.” Though Plotnick may have four spurof-the-moment tattoos, each one has a particular meaning important to whom he is at large. But none express his innermost workings as well as the quote from an episode of SpongeBob SquarePants: “The inner machinations of my mind are an enigma,” said by Patrick Star. The quote explains his thought process as just that: an enigma. As an English major, Plotnick managed to find one of the subtle intellectual nuances that makes SpongeBob great. If one looks closely at many Nickelodeon shows, he or she can find these nuances riddled throughout them. “This quote in particular spoke to me,” Plotnick said. “It’s smart and impressive alone, but as a quote from Spongebob it’s simply surprising. People usually don’t get it, and I like that.”

hen I tell people I’m studying abroad in Jordan, I tend to get the same hesitant response: “Is that safe? How do your parents feel about that? Are you scared?” I can’t say I’m ever surprised by these questions. As a Middle Eastern Studies major, reassurance of my safety seems almost as much of a requirement as knowing Arabic. But for those of you who aren’t personal acquaintances and may be wondering the same thing, I’d like to give you a few thoughts to consider before deeming me a risk-taker for my travels. We have a tendency to assume Western nations are much safer than others. Do you worry for the safety of your friends in London or France? I’d be willing to bet not, and it’s likely because those places are more familiar to us. We’ve become comfortable with them through


dude, where’s my camel? the media, entertainment and politics. We know who Kate Middleton is, and we are familiar with European celebrities like Daniel Craig, Penelope Cruz and Audrey Hepburn, to name a few. They don’t seem any different from you and me. But what do you know about the Middle East? Do you know who the King of Jordan is? Or the name of the most famous Arab singer? Imagine what America would look like to

an outsider if they didn’t hear about any of the culture or the triumphs. What would we look like if the only stories they saw were of the violent things that go on? There are high rates of violent crimes, including homicide and rape. There have been mass shootings, terrorist attacks and innocent lives taken. Yet despite knowing about these disasters, we understand that extremists committed them. They are by no means indicative of our culture as a whole. You must understand, then, that the same applies to the Middle East, where the majority of people are no more extreme than you or me. Statistic for statistic, Jordan is just as safe as the United States. This holds true in statistics of violent crime, theft and terrorism alike. The government is well-established, the law enforcement is strong

and the country maintains good relations with its neighboring nations. Jordan is very stable. But even when I tell people how safe Jordan is and rattle off statistics, they still wonder at my willingness to jump into it. “You won’t have to wear a headscarf, will you?” I’ve been asked in horrified voices. And when I reply “no,” I usually get an “Oh, good” with audible relief. This, I think, exemplifies people’s unease pretty well. It’s not so much about the fear of death or injury, but about the unknown culture. I’ve had friends tell me they could never go to Jordan because they’d “never be able to dress that conservatively,” or “never be able to go somewhere where they can’t even read the signs.” But are we really so attached to our own

Digital letdown

Ra Ra Riot leave Baroque sound, achieve awkward robotic results

By Erik van Rheenen



hen 3-1-5 natives Ra Ra Riot performed in Syracuse last semester, Rebecca Zeller,

the band’s violinist, commented on the group’s upcoming album title, “Beta Love.” She said the concept described “the first love program for an android,” and boy, she wasn’t kidding. As a concept album, “Beta Love” almost works, and works perfectly: it’s every bit as clunky, stiff and robotic as it would be watching the Terminator try to find love. But as a Ra Ra Riot album following two fantastic baroque-pop releases? Well, it’s still clunky, stiff and robotic. On paper, it’s an album that should work.

Snapchat is being blurred more and more as it continues to become more of a sexting aid. The fact that images disappear after an allotted amount of time makes many teenagers feel they are safe to send pictures they may not normally send. However, the security of Snapchat has recently been questioned about its inability to stop photos from being saved. According to the New York Daily News, there are ways to save Snapchats onto a computer by using file management software before the picture is even opened. Though Snapchat has gained a somewhatunconventional reputation because of those who use the app for promiscuous reasons, many amid the student population think Snapchat has a positive reputation. “I love Snapchat,” said Mia Medico, sophomore entrepreneurship and emerging enterprises major. “I’m obsessed with it because it’s so fun and different than just texting.” Senior international relations major Lucia Urizar agreed. “Snapchat is great. It’s a very easy and light way to communicate with friends. I do it all the time,” she said. Medico and Urizar aren’t the only students who love the trend. The craze has grown to include more than just the female population. Chris Proctor, a sophomore exercise science major, likes to use Snapchat to add humor to conversations. “It’s always funny when you can make ugly faces or take funny pictures and snap them to your friends,” said Proctor. “And I get some really hilarious Snapchats, too.” Proctor wasn’t the only student who likes

Snapchat for its humorous qualities. Gabby Garofalo, a junior public relations and child and family studies major, talked about another amusing side of Snapchat: watching other people Snapchat. “Holding their phones out in front them and

WHAT IS SNAPCHAT? Snapchat is a photo-sharing application led by a team of four Stanford friends: Daniel Smith, David Kravitz, Bobby Murphy and Evan Spiegel. The application allows you to snap pictures of things — or people — around you, and send them to a friend for an allotted amount of time. After the time is up, the photo disappears. According to the app’s website,, the philosophy behind the app’s disappearing photos revolves around the idea that “there is value in the ephemeral. Great conversations are magical. That’s because they are shared, enjoyed, but not saved.” making faces is my favorite,” Garofalo said. “It’s so funny because we all do it.” Garofalo admitted that sending these faces to anyone she knows is one of the elements she loves because of the advertised notion that the image will disappear after just a moment. Students have different reasons for Snapchatting, but a consensus is clear: students love to Snapchat. Between the limited time frame offered by the application and the light-hearted nature of the app itself, the student reaction has been a largely positive one. Said Viviano: “I haven’t met a single person with a smartphone who doesn’t like to Snapchat. It’s just so fun.”

Smith said she followed the band’s shows when they played in Ithaca, where the band originated. She had been a friend of the band while she was a college student in Oswego, and heard them play many times. “Incredible, as always,” she said, describing her expectations of tonight’s show. “Why wouldn’t it be?” Their next show will be in the band’s hometown of Ithaca at a nightclub called The Haunt. The band will then perform several more shows in New York before moving on to Burlington, Vt. Their Midwest tour, including stops in Colorado and Utah, will begin in early February.

MCW shines; SU adjusts to 3-guard setup


By Michael Cohen and Chris Iseman THE DAILY ORANGE

In a span of 42 seconds, Michael Carter-Williams put Syracuse in position to beat Cincinnati. The Orange’s steady-handed point guard hit two clutch shots that capped SU’s second-half comeback. Carter-Williams converted a layup with 2:03 left in the game that closed Syracuse’s deficit to two, then less than a minute later drained a 3-pointer from the top of the key that tied it up. With the sophomore nailing those two big shots, the Orange would go on to beat the Bearcats 57-55 in the Carrier Dome Saturday. “Coach has confidence in me to take those shots,” Carter-Williams said. “It’s up to me to make them.” Along with his seven assists, Carter-Williams finished with 16 points and went 6-for-10 from the field. But it was his last couple of shots that meant the most for Syracuse. C.J. Fair called Carter-Williams’ 3 in the closing minutes the biggest play of the game. “We know he can shoot,” Fair said. “It ain’t like he makes open 3s, he makes some tough deep 3s with a hand in his face.” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said after the game that Carter-Williams believes he can make all those shots, and that’s why he lets his guard take them. Boeheim called Carter-Williams’ belief in his ability to hit shots a great thing, and it has helped the Orange all season, especially in this game. Carter-Williams, the nation’s leader in assists, also took care of the shots Monday. “I can’t cook. But if I believed in my cooking like Michael Carter-Williams does, I would win the show ‘Iron Chef,’” Boeheim said. “I’d win and I can’t boil water.” In Syracuse’s win against Louisville Saturday, Carter-Williams scored 16 points. He said Monday Brandon Triche was responsible for creating a lot of those opportunities. Against Cincinnati, the Orange ran screens for CarterWilliams and it worked. “This game, I was able to use the ball screen,” Carter-Williams said. “They went behind the screen and I was able to get a jump shot. I’ve just been open.” Carter-Williams scored 11 of his 16 points in the second half, a time when Syracuse needed him the most as the Bearcats continued to try to balloon their lead. He also hit a jumper from the left elbow with 12:08 left to cut the Orange’s deficit to three,

“I can’t cook. But if I believed in my cooking like Michael CarterWilliams does, I would win the show ‘Iron Chef.’ I’d win and I can’t boil water.” Jim Boeheim


Carter-Williams knocked down Syracuse’s two biggest shots of the day, and because of them, the Orange walked away with a gritty win. “He’s a very good shooter,” Fair said, “one of the best shooters in our conference.”

Boeheim switches to three-guard lineup James Southerland was once again in street clothes Monday, sitting out his third consecutive game due to ineligibility. The 6-foot-8 forward, who shoots like a guard in a big man’s body, leaves his team sans a shooter and sans size. It forced the Orange to turn to a threeguard lineup for the first time all season against Cincinnati, employing Triche, Carter-Williams and Trevor Cooney for lengthy stretches of the second half. And though it hurt Syracuse defensively, as Boeheim explained in his postgame press conference, it gave his team a boost on offense.

Those three players combined to score 37 points in a 57-55 win against the Bearcats, while also tallying 10 of the team’s 11 assists. “We don’t have a lot of options shooting it,” Boeheim said. “We tried to play the three guards together to get another shooter in the game; it hurts us defensively. But when you’re not scoring you’ve got to try to find a way to score.” The Orange managed only 22 points in the first half Monday and missed seven of its 10 attempts from 3-point range. Southerland, the team’s second-leading scorer and arguably its best outside shooter, would have likely boosted those numbers. Instead, that becomes Cooney’s role. The guard finished with eight points, including two 3-pointers. He also chipped in four steals in 18 minutes of play, off-setting the lack of size featured in the three-guard lineup. Cooney said the team began practicing and discussing the possibility of the three-player scenario once Southerland was declared ineligible. It moves Triche, a 6-foot-4 guard, down to one of the wing positions, with Cooney and Carter-Williams out on top of the zone. “It’s something that we’ve talked about and put in the game today, so we’ll see if we put it in again this week,” Cooney said. Judging by Monday’s results, Boeheim may consider using this lineup again if Southerland remains ineligible. The three guards played together from the 16:32 mark of the second half to the 8:54 mark. Syracuse closed Cincinnati’s lead from four to two in that stretch — effective, though not ideal. Up next for Syracuse is Villanova, a team that lacks depth up front. It means the Orange might be able to get away with that lineup one more time before traveling to Pittsburgh in two weeks. Said Cooney: “We’ll make it a lot more difficult for teams to play zone against us if we have that lineup out there.”

my dream, to be an offensive coordinator.” Former Syracuse offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett left the Orange early this month to join Doug Marrone and the Buffalo Bills, but his system will remain in place. McDonald and Hackett worked together at Stanford and developed a philosophy together on how to learn offense. McDonald said Hackett was in town last night to visit his family, and they had a chance to speak. But McDonald said they’ve always spoken about once a month. While he’ll have a new-look offense with the Orange, McDonald said Hackett brought the assistants here for a reason. “There’s really good wide receivers here, maybe some that nobody knows about. There’s really good quarterbacks here, maybe some that nobody knows about,” McDonald said. “I think


gritty No. 21 Cincinnati (16-4, 4-3 Big East) team for a 57-55 win. Their late-game shot-making — along with a lucky tip-in from C.J. Fair that bounced off of multiple players — salvaged a game in which No. 3 Syracuse (18-1, 6-0) trailed for almost 15 minutes in the second half. Together they accounted for more than half of Syracuse’s total points. “We should have lost both of these games,” said Boeheim, reflecting on Monday’s win and the upset of No. 1 Louisville Saturday. “That’s why Rick (Pitino) was so upset the other day. There was almost no way on earth that Louisville should have lost that game Saturday. And there was less of a chance for

“Playing a first-time starter is not easy, but it can be done. It can be done successfully. You see it in the NFL, you see it in college.” Tim Lester

Cincinnati to lose this game. They had this. This game was over. The game was completely over.” With 5:08 remaining, Cincinnati held a seven-point lead and seemed on its way to an impressive road victory following an abysmal offensive performance in the first half. The Bearcats surged ahead after halftime by riding the shooting stroke of Sean Kilpatrick, the team’s leading scorer, who finished with a game-high 21 points, 18 of which were scored from beyond the 3-point line. They took the lead at the 17:25 mark of the second half and held that advantage until the final 19 seconds. In between was a game of runs, with SU tying the game three times only to watch Cincinnati surge back in front. It set the stage for a 13-4 Syracuse run in the final five minutes, snatching a win the Bearcats

McDonald was also named a top-25 recruiter by, and Miami’s Class of 2012 was ranked eighth nationally by Bullough spent the last two seasons as a defensive assistant with the Cleveland Browns. He was the linebackers coach at UCLA from 2006-2008 and the Bruins’ defensive coordinator in 2009 and 2010. Bullough was also the linebackers coach at Western Michigan in 2005, when Shafer was the Broncos’ defensive coordinator. He said his defensive scheme will look a lot like the one Shafer has run for the last four seasons. “It’ll be very familiar. We’re both 4-3. We both have the third-down package, it’s going to look very familiar,” Bullough said. “ … It’ll look the same, but there will be little things in there obviously.” Lester, Syracuse’s new quarterbacks coach, spent the last five seasons as the head coach at Division-III Elmhurst College in Illinois. Lester was the quarterbacks coach at Western

Michigan in 2005 and 2006. He said Monday he hasn’t seen much of the quarterbacks already on the roster, but is planning on calling Hackett to get more information about them. One of Lester’s first tasks will be to develop the Orange’s next starting quarterback, with Ryan Nassib graduating after a record-breaking season. “Playing a first-time starter is not easy, but it can be done. It can be done successfully. You see it in the NFL, you see it in college,” Lester said. “I’m excited to get to work with those guys physically and mentally as soon as we get done with recruiting.” Shafer and his new coaches have been on the road recruiting, which will wrap up with signing day Feb. 6. They’ll get to know their players better after that, and perhaps most importantly, learn the Atlantic Coast Conference. “Obviously, going into the ACC, we’re going to have our work cut out for us,” Bullough said, “but we’re going to be ready for that.”

should have had and preserving the nation’s longest home winning streak. “You don’t really want to have confidence in that you’re going to be down and come back,” Triche said. “That’s not good confidence. It’s more so confidence that we’re going to stick it out, that we’re not going to get down on each other and we’re just going to play for each other.” Fittingly it was Triche, the Orange’s only senior with James Southerland still ineligible, who sparked the late-game run with an assertive offensive sequence. He made back-to-back baskets in less than a minute, hitting a fade-away jumper first and a one-dribble pull-up right after to close the gap to three with 4:12 remaining. Then it was Carter-Williams’ turn to reenter the spotlight less than 48 hours after he’d left it in Louisville. The often-heroic, sometimes head-scratching point guard entered Monday’s game shooting 27 percent from 3-point range, but he rose confidently with his team in a must-make situation. He tied the game at 55 with 1:21 remaining, forcing Cincinnati head coach Mick Cronin to take a timeout as Carter-Williams implored the

crowd to hurl even more noise at the Bearcats. They would not score another point. “It’s a big shot, give him credit,” said Cronin. “He’s going to play a long time in the NBA. But yeah, we would rather have him shoot than Triche.” So in the game’s closing seconds, when neither Triche nor Carter-Williams shot, Cronin should have been happy. He was likely thrilled to see Jerami Grant, a freshman, careen down the lane and toss an awkward layup at the rim. But there was C.J. Fair, the third member of the Syracuse triumvirate that defenders cannot leave open, crashing the offensive glass for a tip-in that Cronin said touched three different players when he watched the replay before miraculously falling through the net. It left him sullen and despondent, completely aware that his team’s late-game defensive collapse had cost them an upset. There was no shot to make Cronin celebrate. “I know I wasn’t the only person to touch it,” Fair said. “But I’ll take the win.”


right back. Kilpatrick hit a triple from the right wing that opened the Bearcats’ lead to five. Triche hit a jumper in the lane that closed the gap to five, but Parker hit a 3 to essentially negate the shot. Syracuse dug in and hit shots, but Cincinnati hit them, too. SU point guard Michael Carter-Williams said the only way to fix the problem is to close out the shooters more quickly. “Just sticking to our principles and getting out on shooters,” Carter-Willams said. “It’s what coach teaches us everyday. We broke down a few times. We can’t do that.” Cincinnati’s biggest 3-point attempt came in the closing seconds, and it was the one clutch shot it missed. Syracuse was clinging to a 57-55 lead. Wright put up a 3 from the top of the key that went in and out. “It looked great. It just rolled right in and out,” Kilpatrick said. “We needed him to take the shots he took. Great shooters aren’t going to always make every shot.” While Syracuse had defensive breakdowns and failed to recognize where Cincinnati’s shooters were, the Bearcats still hit some tough, long shots. Still, not getting out on those shooters nearly cost the Orange the game. For a team that plays zone exclusively, it could happen again. “They had a couple good looks, we made mistakes,” Carter-Williams said. “But they were hitting tough shots. I give all the credit in the world to them, they were hitting tough shots.”


defense to pay particular attention to Kilpatrick, since Cashmere Wright didn’t play in Cincinnati’s last game and might’ve been off. But Syracuse didn’t do enough of what Boeheim wanted. Cooney said after the game the guards needed to do a better job of knowing where Kilpatrick was at all times. He said all the Bearcats did was move the ball effectively to spread out the Orange’s defense. “When they space it out like that it’s tough to get out to them,” Cooney said. “You’ve still got to get out there and play the 2-3 hard.” Six of Cincinnati’s 10 3-pointers came in the second half. In all, the Bearcats attempted 14 3-pointers in the second half, good for 42.9 percent in the half. Syracuse had a slim four-point lead at halftime, but it evaporated quickly after the break. JaQuon Parker hit a 3 from the right corner, which gave the Bearcats a 25-24 lead at 17:25. Just more than two minutes later, Kilpatrick hit a highlight 3 from the top of the key while his momentum took him backward. The Bearcats had a seven-point lead. Syracuse had to play catch-up for the rest of the second half. “We just starting moving the ball more, getting everybody more involved,” Parker said. “We just got a lot of open shots the second half.” Brandon Triche made a fast-break layup with about seven minutes left that closed Syracuse’s deficit to two.

After the Nittany Lions’ visit this weekend, Syracuse will travel to face Robert Morris. The Colonials are 1-1 against the Orange this season. SU’s scoring rate has been erratic this season. The Orange has gone anywhere from scoring 10 goals in one weekend to netting two the following weekend. With only eight games left in the regular season, SU will try to keep up the momentum at home Friday following its two-game sweep of Lindenwood.

player,” said senior Holly Carrie-Mattimoe. Domenico played 153 games at St. Lawrence University from 2006-2009. Her 29 power play goals tie her for the most power play goals in the school’s history. Syracuse head coach Paul Flanagan was Domenico’s head coach at St. Lawrence from freshman to junior year. As a result, players like Carrie-Mattimoe have noticed similarities between Domenico and Flanagan’s coaching styles. Her experience playing under Flanagan helps her connect with and better instruct her players. While playing in college, Domenico reached the NCAA Tournament every year, including the Frozen Four in 2006 and 2007. During her senior year, the SU assistant coach was named the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Defensive Forward of the Year, and made second-team, all-league. “She was coached by coach Flanagan as well, so they kind of have the same mentality,” Carrie-Mattimoe said. “Everyone respects her so it’s not any different than coach Flanagan being on the ice.” Before coming to the Orange, Domenico was an assistant coach at Ohio State from 2010-2011. She helped players with their skills, worked on video analysis and the team’s day-to-day operations. Domenico came to Syracuse as an assistant coach in 2011. Earlier in the season, Flanagan talked about SU’s need for more offensive production, which

But it’s not just on the ice that Carrie-Mattimoe has noticed Domenico’s effect on the team. Carrie-Mattimoe said she thinks of Domenico as a great coach, and someone that’s a perfect fit at Syracuse. She also said the girls on the team love learning from her and following her lead.

Carrie-Mattimoe is a captain, forcing her to be more vocal and present in the locker room, but she isn’t the only player noticing Domenico’s effect on the team. Even the usually soft-spoken junior Shiann Darkangelo praised SU’s assistant coach. “She’s easy to talk to,” Darkangelo said. “I love her, she’s awesome.” Asst. sports editor Jacob Klinger and staff writer Ryan Raigrodski contributed reporting to this article.

BACK Carter-Williams caps SU’s comeback victory By Michael Cohen



t was the shot that made Jim Boeheim celebrate. With a confident flick of the wrist, though his percentage from beyond the arc should make him anything but, Michael Carter-Williams let loose the 3-pointer that a teammate dubbed the play of the game. From the top of the key he let it fly – his team trailing by three and in danger of losing at home for the first time in the last 35 games – only to watch it nestle softly in the net a moment later. It led Boeheim to raise both arms in celebration, led a crowd of 24,281 back to life after it was nearly lulled to sleep and it led, most importantly, his team to a comefrom-behind victory for a second straight game. Carter-Williams and Brandon Triche scored or assisted 11 of the final 13 points Monday to surge past a

Syracuse’s defense kept breaking down. Cincinnati kept knocking down 3-pointers. It happened all game long. Syracuse continued to leave the Bearcats’ shooters open on the wings or in the corners.


Behind the fluid stroke of Sean Kilpatrick, No. 21 Cincinnati (16-4, 4-3 Big East) hit 10 3-pointers in its 57-55 loss to the No. 3 Orange (18-1, 6-0) in the Carrier Dome Monday. Kilpatrick hit six of them, the beneficiary of broken defensive plays by some of Syracuse’s freshmen. Throughout
