ince Ben Domingo assumed the position of director of Syracuse University Health Services in 2011, he’s been making up for lost time. The center went nearly two years without a director before Domingo was selected. Since taking the job, Domingo has enacted a litany of changes that emphasize customer service and help improve the reputation of SU Health Services on campus. “I know it’s going to take some time because I know that there’s still, for some of the upperclassmen, there might be some negative perceptions of Health Services,” he said. “We’re really, really changing because of the people who have been here for a
while who are adapting to the changes and because of a lot of the new management who’s really instilled the changes.” In the almost year and a half Domingo has been at the helm, SU Health Services has hired a new

Health Services team looks to improve reputation on campus with increased focus on customer service person to make sure the whole operation runs smoothly. In addition, a few months before Domingo was hired, SU Health Services got a new business manager and medical director. But all of these changes and improvements were implemented with the same overall goal in mind: customer service. In keeping with this goal, Domingo has centralized all complaints, so any concerns from parents or students come to him personally, he said. “I really want to know. Gosh, I’ve had 20 people that complained that they’re not getting in soon enough,” he said. “Whatever the complaints are I want to hear what they are and I want to respond and I really want to get an answer that’s not just fluff but an answer that really addresses
their concern.” Domingo is also hoping to change some of the misconceptions students on campus have about SU Health Services. Many students don’t realize their health fee covers them being seen by a medical provider at SU Health Services and that, in general, Health Services is usually a better option than the emergency room, he said. “Emergency rooms are very good when it comes to emergencies but when it comes to something that’s not, they tend to not be very compassionate, they tend to kind of move you in and out,” Domingo said. “They’re going to say, ‘Well, follow up with your own doctor,’ where here they’re going to get comprehensive care.”

Fayette St., during Mayor Stephanie Miner’s State of the City Address on Thursday night. Miner said in an interview after the speech she appreciated the group’s point of view, but added that with a $21 million budget deficit, the city is looking at all expenses. Mark McLees, chief of the Syracuse Fire Department, said renovating Station No. 7 would cost $7-$10 million.

Dome to harvest rainwater By Olivia Johnson CONTRIBUTING WRITER
The Carrier Dome will make the most out of the Syracuse weather starting in summer 2014, when it becomes the only stadium dome in the country to partake in rainwater harvesting. Rainwater will be used to flush public toilets and urinals during games and other events, said Bruce Wanlass, principal engineer at C&S Companies, the Syracuse-based engineering consulting firm leading the project. The $1.35 million project will be made possible through a grant from the Environmental Facilities Corporation. Wanlass, a 1982 Syracuse University alumnus, came up with the idea during a basketball game in November 2011, when he wondered how much fresh water was being wasted in the Dome bathrooms.” “Simple idea, but exciting,” Wanlass said. He decided to take his idea to his boss at C&S, who was receptive to the idea. C&S has worked on other rainwater harvesting projects in Syracuse, including the harvesting system for the Syracuse Hancock International Airport. Siddhi Pradhan, a first-year graduate student in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management, said she likes the idea of recycling the Dome’s runoff. “It’s a great idea. Rainwater harvesting is pretty big these days in India,” said Pradhan, who is from India. The project will harvest up to 20,000 gallons of runoff from the Dome’s roof and save it in storage tanks, according to a news release from C&S. The recycled water will save approximately 880,000 gallons of fresh water, the same amount currently coming from Onondaga County’s Municipal Water system, to use in the Dome bathrooms, Wanlass said. The project will lessen the strain on the county’s sewage system and save SU $4,000 a year, he said. Construction on the project is set to start in May 2014 and will be completed roughly two months later, Wanlass said. Funding for the project was approved by the state and planning has already begun. Although the project will be completed relatively quickly, Wanlass said there are still a few obstacles engineers have to overcome. Government codes require the rainwater to be filtered so the water

SU hosts North American debate tournament By Levi Stein STAFF WRITER
More than 60 college debate teams from all across North America came to Syracuse University this past weekend for the 2013 North American Championship, a prestigious collegiate debate tournament. The three-day tournament takes place every spring semester and alternates each year between host schools in the United States and Canada, said Samm Costello, a senior Russian language major at SU and director of the tournament. The American Parliamentary Debate Association, in conjunction
with the Canadian University Society for Intercollegiate Debate, collaborated to create a unique tournament featuring top debate teams from each country, Costello said. “Sixty-six teams arrived here on Friday from schools throughout the Northeastern United States and Canada,” said Eric Brooks, a junior from Yale University. “Each team is composed of two students that compete against a team from another school.” Participating universities are allowed to bring more than one team, Brooks said. The team that hosts the tournament is responsible for
arranging the judging, but is not allowed to compete, according to tournament rules. Because the tournament involves both American and Canadian schools, a hybrid-style of rules is used, said Ben StromWeber, an SU alumnus helping out for the weekend. “APDA is a lot more technicallybased and the speeches are slightly longer than the standard CUSID protocol,” said Sarah Margulies, a sophomore from Brandeis University. “CUSID places a lot of emphasis on rhetoric and oratory.” Before debate rounds began,
teams were given motions, or topics to argue, Margulies said. The teams were then informed of whether they would be arguing as either the prominded government or the opposition, she said. For the first rounds, teams were paired randomly without any respect to seeding, Margulies said. After this round, teams are paired based on skill level in an NCAA Tournamentlike bracket. Every team was given six preliminary rounds Friday and Saturday, which include three arguments for the motion and three arguments against

College Republicans to bring Huckabee to SU campus By Jessica Iannetta ASST. NEWS EDITOR
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee will speak at Syracuse University on Feb. 7, the College Republicans announced Thursday. Huckabee, who
ran for president in 2008 but lost in the primaries to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), will give a talk called “The Future of Conservatism” at 7:30 p.m. in Gifford Auditorium in Huntington Beard Crouse Hall. “We try to bring people with a lot of experience and who have a different view of conservatism,” said James Ward, president of the College Republicans.
Huckabee’s talk will focus on what’s next for conservatism after President Barack Obama’s recent reelection, Ward said. “We’re trying to build conservatism and do better with PR after we lost the last election and make conservatism more relatable,” he said. “He’s going to give his take on where we should be heading four years from now.”
The group decided to bring Huckabee to campus not only because of his level of experience, but also because he’s a very good speaker for the club’s budget, Ward said. Traditionally, he said, the group works with organizations such as the Young America’s Foundation to book speakers such as Huckabee. firstname.lastname@example.org @JessicaIannetta

rogress. An accomplishment, a necessity. What we should embrace and never resist, what we should cherish and never refuse to accept. It is putting one foot in front of the other, conceptualizing and seeing the truth within the world around you. From the streets of Syracuse University to the corridors of Capitol Hill, progress is in motion. President Barack Obama understands its essentiality and the importance of acting to create it. He believes in moving toward it. Chancellor Nancy Cantor does, too. With each deliberately chosen word in his inaugural address, Obama spoke of progress – progress for the working world of the future, for education and for the environment. From equal pay for women to gun violence to immigration to gay rights, he advocates for progress. SU is a place where Obama’s hope for national progress is taking shape and moving forward each and every day.

campus watchdog innovation and reason for progress. But more importantly, this campus is a place where action is taken time and again. This desire to make change has been exhibited in large movements, like the 1970 student strike advocating against the Vietnam War, and in peaceful demonstrations like the newly instated Impact Week, where students work to make Syracuse a better place for all who encompass it. These actions lead to progress. The education we are receiving at SU, which encourages well-rounded intellectuals versed in many fields and studies, is preparing us to join an unpredictable workforce. We are
also aided in affording this experience. About 75 percent of students receive some form of financial support, meaning more can afford an increasingly expensive college education. This is progress. Women dominate the highest leadership positions for faculty and students, from Chancellor Cantor to Student Association President Allie Curtis. SU women also outnumber men by 56 to 44 percent of the undergraduate population. This is progress. SU is the host to students from around the world, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, and expanding socioeconomic backgrounds. This push for more diversity and inclusivity is progress. Because SU is in New York state, we also observe the toughest gun control measures in the nation and the legality of same-sex marriage. This, too, is progress. As a nation and as a university community, we will continue to witness different actors, circumstances, celebrated events and despairing crises as our history is written.
It is how we recognize the evolvement of this country’s citizens and act on those recognitions that will deem us ultimately successful or not. We can only fully find this success if we allow societal progress to take place. The founding fathers wrote us guidelines to be followed. But they also left room for adaptation to allow us to live fully in the present, building on our past but not relying on it for every choice we make in the future. We as a people and students have a right to not fear gunfire, a right to build sustainability through education and the environment, and a right to make progress for ourselves. We are different shades of the same skin, different genders with the same aspirations and different sexual orientations on the same quest for love. We are the new United States of America. We are SU.

Closing Fire Station No. 7 is hazardous risk for city Fire Station No. 7 is a valuable asset to the Syracuse University community. Closing the station due to budget cuts is concerning, as it would be a dangerous decision for the people the station regularly serves. Though the city’s budget will not be finalized until March, Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner said there is a $21 million deficit and all cuts must be considered. But closing Station No. 7 should not be one of those cuts. The station is the busiest in the city, responds to the most alarm activations at SU and receives the most calls from SU than any other station. Its proximity to Main Campus – only 0.7 miles away – is critical for serving such a large and dependent community. If the station were to close, the next closest station would be more than double that distance. This would lead to a potentially risky increase in response time.
EDITORIAL by the daily orange editorial board The firefighters of Station No. 7 are most familiar with SU buildings, making them effective first responders. If the station closes, these firefighters would be placed at a different station, and may no longer be first responders in the university area. Their knowledge of the buildings is vital to safety and efficiency. The station also serves other high-population institutions like the Upstate Medical Center, Crouse Hospital and the Syracuse VA Medical Center, as well as the older homes of the Eastside. Though the station is the oldest and most rundown in the city, thus making repairs costly, the safety of the citizens that Station No. 7 serves should not be compromised or jeopardized due to funding.

Ability to serve in combat not determined by gender; lift of 1994 ban welcomed
n Thursday, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta officially announced the elimination of the 1994 ban on women in combat. “In life, as we all know, there are no guarantees of success. Not everyone is going to be able to be a combat soldier. But everyone is entitled to a chance,” Panetta said in a press brief following the announcement at Pentagon. Previously, supporters of the discriminatory practice questioned whether or not women would be able to partake in the same physically demanding tasks men in ground combat units perform. But without the opportunity to openly participate in these combat roles, most women

have not been able to prove their performance in the same roles as men. Elimination of this policy officially allows women to pursue ground combat roles in the military. Sometimes, however, participation in combat roles has been inevitable for women. Maj. Mary Jennings Hegar, an Air National Guard search-andrescue helicopter pilot, was shot down in 2009. She had no choice but to engage in combat. Despite receiving a Purple Heart and a Distinguished Flying Cross with valor for her experience in a dangerous combat situation, she was unable to pursue combat leadership positions because her experience was not officially recognized.

i am woman, hear me roar Last November, Hegar and two other female veterans filed a lawsuit with the American Civil Liberties Union in protest of the sexist policy. “The ability to serve in combat has very little to do with gender or any other generalization. It has everything to do with heart, character, ability, determination and dedication. This policy is an injustice to the women who have come before us and

who continue to put their lives on the line for their country,” Hegar said. Hegar, who had wanted to be a U.S. Air Force pilot since she was a little girl, could not be more right. If women can prove they are able to meet the demands that ground combat involves, they should be allowed to pursue ground combat opportunities. This unfair practice is only now being overturned in the United States. Countries like Canada and Israel have been allowing women to act in combat roles for years. Although only a small percentage of women end up choosing to take on combat roles in these countries, it is important that their right to prove they are qualified for a position in

ground combat is recognized. Restricting women from these roles only perpetuates stereotypes about women that have no place in today’s society. Officially being allowed to serve in combat roles enables women to be recognized for their bravery by being awarded medals of honor or advancing to positions they would have otherwise been unable to. Not everyone will be able to be a part of ground combat units, but they should be given a chance regardless of their sex.

SUNY-ESF professor to integrate social media as Syracuse Media Group weatherman By Shannon Hazlitt
ave Eichorn will not just provide weather information to people as the new digital weatherman for Syracuse.com — he will make predicting weather interactive. “There are true advantages to not just delivering information, but receiving it,” said Eichorn, a professor at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Eichorn accepted a job with the Syracuse Media Group, the company that will run Syracuse.com and The Post-Standard, on Jan. 11. Syracuse Media Group will run the news sources starting Feb. 3, according to a news release on Syracuse.com. In addition to his job as weatherman, Eichron also teaches a spring semester meteorology course and a summer online course for ESF that focuses on climate change and meteorology.
Eichorn’s previous position with WSYRTV made him a familiar face among an older generation. However, now that he is using new, innovative media, he will also attract interest from a younger generation, said Charles Spuches, associate provost for outreach at ESF. Spuches said Eichorn’s passion for weather and his rare ability to communicate to not only meteorology experts but also average people makes him a perfect fit for the job. “It’s so exciting what he is doing and he is just the person to do that,” he added. His new position will be focus more on regularly engaging with residents of Central New York, Eichorn said. In the past, Eichorn has contributed articles about the weather to Syracuse. com and The Post-Standard. Eichorn said going digital is a great opportunity to provide real-time information, using everything from text to videos, about the short-
fused weather of Central New York. “Syracuse.com is getting serious about providing weather information,” he said. By integrating social media, the position will also allow Eichorn to quickly answer questions and respond to observations concerning the weather, he said. Eichorn’s willingness to communicate using new media is another reason he is appropriate for his new position at The Post-Standard and Syracuse.com, Spuches said. He said Eichorn has demonstrated this by teaching a one-credit online course this summer called ENS 200: “Climate Change Science and Sustainability.” Ross Mazur, a sophomore, is currently taking the meteorology course with Eichorn. He said Eichorn is very enthusiastic about the course and often incorporates his work at other jobs into the class curriculum. “He will often talk about how he stays up late at night predicting and forecasting,”
Mazur said. ”He’ll also tell us the thought process he went through to make these judgments and how they apply to what we are learning in class.” Katrina Cornish, a sophomore environmental science major, took the course last spring. She also said Eichorn often used his connections and knowledge from his many jobs in meteorology to enhance the class. She gave the example of how he let the class have an up-close experience with Doppler on Wheels, a professional weather-predicting device used to track tornadoes and lake-effect precipitation. Cornish said she thinks Eichorn’s new position is just one more area in which he can be successful. Said Cornish: “I think his drive to learn more and his enthusiasm are enough to make him successful in anything.” firstname.lastname@example.org

years. DPS hired him one day after he retired from SPD in 2007. The rally will be held at 2 p.m. on the corner of Waverly and South Crouse avenues, according to the Facebook event “Rally for Joe Shanley.” The hashtag #SaveJoeSU also began circulating at about 4 p.m. Saturday. Paul Ang, a State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry graduate student, and SU alumni Sacchi Patel and Ben Bradley are organizing the event. Shanley spoke out about issues of sexism, racism and homophobia within different levels of the department throughout the last six years, Jes Shanley said. “He stood up for what he believed in, and that rubbed people the wrong way,” she said, adding that Shanley is declining to comment at this time, as he might be seeking legal advice. Due to restructuring within DPS, Shanley had to reapply for his position, Jes Shanley said. The process seemed like a formality to him, she said, but Shanley was given a notice that essentially stated he wasn’t qualified for the job. He also received information about leaving his position, she said. Thomas Wolfe, senior vice president and dean of student affairs, said the term “demotion” that is circulating is inaccurate and loaded

with assumptions. He also said the rumor Shanley will not be able to interact with students and student organizations is false. “Joe is a true asset to our campus, and we value him very much,” he said. Though he cannot comment specifically about any one employee, Wolfe said he would never allow speaking out on an issue such as sexism, racism or homophobia affect a personnel decision or go unnoticed in a unit he supervises. Wolfe said one of Shanley’s biggest strengths is his love for students, and emphasized there’s a lot of information circulating that is not “based in reality.” He said the restructuring of DPS involves a commitment to maintain employment levels. Wolfe is concerned about the misinformation and the conclusions some people are drawing from it. He said he does not want anyone such as Shanley harmed because of the restructuring, but was not able to discuss the matter more specifically because of privacy and policy issues. Jes Shanley said her father is upset, but is more concerned for the students and community. Shanley’s son Seamus is a freshman at SU and walk-on center on the football team. DPS Chief Tony Callisto and Associate Chief John Sardino couldn’t immediately be reached for comment. Callisto noted Shanley’s commitment to the service of others and community policing in a Nov. 17, 2009 article in The Daily Orange.
“While many of the folks here do a great job of interacting with students and working toward building relationships, Joe has a real unique ability to really connect with students in ways that quite frankly are amazing,” he said in the article. Kevin Quinn, senior vice president for public affairs at SU, directed comments to a university statement released Saturday. “Officer Shanley’s role with DPS will continue to offer him opportunities to engage the campus in the very positive way that students expect,” the statement said. “As with each of our DPS employees, we value Officer Shanley’s contributions to our organization and the strong connections he has made with the campus community.” The statement references the restructuring within DPS. It said all candidates for positions were given full consideration on the merits of their background, experience and skill set. Citing privacy concerns and human resources policy, it declines to give any more specifics. Lou Marcoccia, executive vice president and chief financial officer, Kal Alston, senior vice president for human capital development and Wolfe signed the statement. Ang, one of the rally’s organizers studying geospatial information science and engineering at ESF, is an adviser and mentor for the campus group A Men’s Issue. The group is dedicated to redefining and evaluating masculinity, as well as the idea that domestic violence is not just an
issue for women. He said Shanley had been coming to the group’s meetings ever since he can remember, and is viewed as an older brother or father figure to members. He genuinely cares about students and their safety, Ang said. “He’s in my mind the model for what campus law enforcement should be,” he said. During the group’s meeting Thursday, a DPS officer who is friends with Shanley told members about Shanley’s change in position, he said. Ang said he immediately began reaching out to students and alumni to organize the rally. He described the news as “surreal.” Jes Shanley said she and her father are thankful for the support shown so far. Said Jes Shanley: “My dad appreciates that students care so much to do something.”
should be dyed orange or blue for the school’s colors, or if another color should be used, Wanlass said. Engineers are also concerned about the location of 50,000-pound water tanks under the bleachers. It is unclear whether the infrastructure will be able to hold the tanks, so reinforce-
ments to the Dome will have to be completed before they can be safely installed, Wanlass said. Wanlass said he hopes to make the project educational. Tours of the construction for SU students and community members could take place. Some students, such as Stephen Connors, a
freshman newspaper and online journalism major, have given their opinions on what color the water should be. Said Connors: “The water should be orange because it makes the water that Syracuse collects become Syracuse orange.”
Rally for Joe Shanley

Many students also think it’s hard to get an appointment at SU Health Services, he said. “With 19-year-olds, everything is an emergency yesterday,” Domingo said. While part of that is because of the nature of college students and their lack of forethought, Domingo said he also realizes SU Health Services must adapt to this. Most of the students who come to SU Health Services have acute illnesses such as strep throat or bronchitis, so the center has a go-to provider who can see students with these illnesses right away, he said. Another way of fixing these misconceptions is by outreach and raising awareness, said Spiro Tzetzis, SU Health Services medical director and a 1991 SU alumnus. SU Health Services now has a Facebook and Twitter account, an updated website and has gotten more involved on campus in hopes of raising its level of visibility, he said. Another improvement that may be on the

horizon is expanding SU Health Service’s facilities, Tzetzis said. A feasibility study is currently underway, and Tzetzis said he’d like to see bigger rooms that are more comfortable for students and offer more privacy. The study is currently in the preliminary stages of meeting with architects and reviewing design plans for how to improve the facilities, Domingo said. No dates have been set for moving forward with the changes, he said. One new staff member who has helped bring about change is Michele Frontale, who was hired as a supervising pharmacist last March. Frontale previously worked at Kinney Drugs in Syracuse, which was helpful in her efforts to decrease the price of medications. “When I first came, I saw that the cost of medication was kind of skewed compared to what’s around in the market area,” she said. “I want to make our pharmacy be the pharmacy of choice of our students and one way of doing that was to decrease our cost of medications.” To do this, she compared the price of overthe-counter medications to those at CVS/pharmacy and the price of prescription medications to those at Rite Aid and Kinney Drugs. Then,
she set the prices at or below the prices of these area stores, Frontale said. Besides the comparable prices, Frontale said she believes using SU Health Service’s pharmacy offers other benefits for students, namely that they can charge the medication to their bursar account and don’t need to pay out of pocket. EMS Manager Paul Smyth, who was hired in August 2011, has also made changes that benefit students, Domingo said. Smyth has implemented a paperless computer service so that when a student is transported to the emergency room, a report is automatically sent to SU Health Services so they can follow up with the student, he said. In addition to improving the services already in place, SU Health Services has added some additional options for students. While SU has always had counseling services available for students, SU Health Services recently hired a psychiatrist and a psychiatric nurse practitioner, Domingo said. Previously, SU Health Services had to refer students to outside psychiatric facilities. This year, SU Health Services is up for accreditation and the center has already begun preparing to get reaccredited, Domingo said.
SU Health Services is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, and must be reaccredited every three years, according to the SU Office of Institutional Research and Assessment. Accreditation involves examining SU Health Services’ customer service in the pharmacy and the clinic as a whole; making sure policies, procedures and protocols are up to date; and a peer review of medical care, Domingo said. SU Health Services has been accredited since 1995. Domingo and some of his staff have attended reaccreditation training in preparation for compiling the center’s application and for the on-site visit Sept. 30, he said. In general, Domingo said having a good team of people around him has made improving SU Health Services easier. He also credits the staff that has been with the center for a while for being open to the changes. “It’s tough to transition from the old to the new, but most people are on board,” he said. “I’m hoping that the university as a whole has a better perception of us as time goes on.”
“This is a very respected tournament,” said Margulies. “I’ve been debating for a couple years and it’s cool to have an opportunity like this to compete against top-quality teams from Canada and the United States.” Costello said having the chance to host the tournament was a fantastic opportunity for the SU Debate Society. “SU has a smaller debate society compared to some of the other schools in APDA and we don’t get to travel as much,” she
said. “Many of the participating Ivy League schools have massive budgets and lots of experience. We are hoping this increases opportunities in the future and establishes a good rep for us.” Planning for the tournament began back in August but ramped up as the tournament date neared, Costello said. “We worked closely with the Syracuse Sheraton and were able to secure hotel rooms and a banquet location,” Costello said. “Wegmans
helped us doing some catering, but the real hard workers are my teammates who made this all possible.” SU has about 10 members on its team, but is always looking to recruit new candidates, she said. Said Costello: “We’re a relatively new sort of a group and we’re always looking for new members. We try to encourage a positive atmosphere where you can choose your own pace and will.”

n the past decade, shopping has become much more than simply heading to the mall. The Internet has revolutionized shopping so that you can shop at home in your underwear (if that’s your thing). You can shop items hand-picked by your favorite celebrities, rent fashionable items at a discount and even virtually try on clothes. But the biggest trend in online shopping goes past e-commerce and into subscriptions — they’re now for more than just magazines. Users can subscribe to a flat-rate monthly shoe delivery (ShoeMint.com), a monthly beauty sample delivery (Birchbox. com) or a monthly jewelry delivery (SendtheTrend.com). If that seems like overkill, I agree. If I bought a pair of shoes every month, I would have a full closet and an empty wallet. But these subscriptions, unlike magazine subscriptions, allow the user to skip a month if there isn’t anything they want or need. The other perk of this model is that the items for sale are hand-selected by fashion experts. Inn the case of the BeachMint brands – ShoeMint, JewelMint and StyleMint – celebrity fashion experts hand-pick the items for subscribers (Rachel Bilson, Kate Bosworth and the Olsen twins, respectively). Subscription commerce has the possibility of draining your bank account, so a good alternative is renting services. RentTheRunway.com is exactly what it sounds like: You can rent designer dresses you’ve been drooling over but could never afford. While you admittedly won’t find any Chanel or Dior, there are Diane von Furstenberg dresses, Rebecca Minkoff handbags and Dannijo jewels for deeply discounted prices. The rental periods are four or eight days. Then, just send the items back. It’s perfect for broke college students wanting to dress to impress at a special event. The newest, somewhat controversial, renting service is Lacquerous. com. Lacquerous lets the user rent luxury nail polish from brands like Chanel, NARS, Deborah Lippmann and Dior.

enior Michael Thal did not sleep much this past weekend. Instead, he spent hours creating music for a video game produced in less than 48 hours as a participant in the Global Game Jam.
This year’s international video game theme was a heartbeat. Thal’s group decided to make a game that incorporated how to keep the heart healthy. Similar to Tetris, healthy pieces of food fit together and disappear to give the player more points. “I decided to go with happy-golucky music for the healthy food pieces and to switch to evil sounding music when the unhealthy foods like ice cream start falling,” said Thal,

a student in the Bandier Program for Music and the Entertainment Industries. Thousands participated at about 300 locations as part of the worldwide Global Game Jam, said Scott Nicholson, the School of Information Studies technology professor who played a leading role in organizing the event. Groups ranging from one to seven people collaborated to complete four playable games by noon Sunday, when every game worldwide had to be uploaded onto the international Global Game Jam server. With brainstorming and developing complete, Thal was one of about 20 other participants Sunday who filled the basement of Hinds Hall to play the newly created video and board games. The event began Friday at about 3 p.m. when keynote game designers announced the theme of the event, Nicholson said. He described the process the groups must go through: brainstorming ideas on the first night, sorting through different possibilities the second day and finally celebrating their finished product the third day. He said many game ideas are

often abandoned on the second day to pursue others that are simpler. “Each group has that different a-ha moment,” Nicholson said. “It’s exciting to watch each group realize what they’ve done to create their game on such a short period of time.” Participants worked on developing their games on Friday until midnight, Saturday from 8 a.m. until midnight and finally on Sunday from 8 a.m. until the international deadline at noon. Nicholson said the SU games, along with more than 10,000 others uploaded from Game Jam sites around the world, are available for any player to access and play from the Game Jam website. After all of the games were completed and

uploaded, an award ceremony followed at the iSchool café, where every participant was given a certificate for participation. The game developers then played their games until about 3 p.m. “It’s always surprising how quickly these games come together,” Nicholson said. Seventy-five percent of attendees were students, half of them undergraduates, Nicholson said. He also said there were many members of his organization, the Game Designers’ Guild, which focuses on bringing together members of the Syracuse community who are interested in game design. Nicholson said there were even some who attended the event who he had not met before and who must have seen advertisements for it. “Some of the people here have never been to SU campus,” Nicholson said. “It can expose them to what goes on here.” One of the goals Nicholson said he would like
to work toward for next year’s Global Game Jam is to collaborate with other nearby communities like Morrisville that also hold Game Jams. Although this is the fifth year the Global Game Jam has been held at SU, it is the first time it has been held in the iSchool, Nicholson said. Ari Abramovsky, SU graduate student and member of the Game Designers’ Guild, helped organize the Global Game Jam. He said in the previous two years, the event has been held in SU’s education building. There it was a bit more formal, he said. In the iSchool building this year, it was more disorganized in many ways since there was less space to work. This environment helps promote the purpose of getting people together who are interested in games as an education medium, an art form or a transformative tool in a sort of pressure-cooker environment, Abramovsky said. Carolynn Steele, an English and textual studies senior, also participated in the event. She said she would defiantly encourage other students to participate in the future. She said seeing so much talent and interest in developing games inspired her to move ahead with plans to create a general game interest group at SU with the support of ETS professor Chris Hanson and Nicholson. She said she would like to make this group open to the State University of New York College of Environ-

Performance of ‘Wit’ inspires thought-provoking discussion By Adelyn Biedenbach STAFF WRITER
After the production of “Wit,” a play following the journey of a professor diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer, the curtain didn’t fall. The stage was left open to display two green, skid-resistant hospital socks, a gown and an empty hospital bed. Those remaining in the audience at the Red House Arts Center prepared to When: Jan. 30 at 8 begin The Talkback p.m.; Feb. 1 at 8 p.m.; Series. Partnered Feb. 2 at 2 p.m. with speakers and Where: Red House participants from Arts Center Syracuse University, How much: $25 Crouse Hospital, Le Moyne College and Onondaga Community College, The Talkback Series featured a discussion with a guest speaker after each performance. “Wit,” running through Feb. 2 in downtown Syracuse, ties in metaphysical poetry and an investigation of mortality into its plot. A cast of nine utilized the intimate space of the Red House to portray scenes of fear, struggle and realization. SU professor of social work Eric Kingson will be moderating a future post-show talkback. The author of two books, “Lessons from Joan – Living and Loving with Cancer, A Husband’s Story” and “In Our Own Words: Stories of Children Experiencing Serious Illness,” Kingson has experienced firsthand the effect of the experiences explored in the play. “It’s a very human experience,” Kingson said.
“The play is really about how intelligence and knowledge are not the same as wisdom — how wit can circumvent compassion.” Rev. Roko Sherry Chayat RINZ AI ZEN MASTER
“A lot of growth can take place as people die.” “Wit” follows Vivian Bearing, played by Laura Austin, as she struggles to hold onto her identity as a scholar and teacher throughout the development of her disease. She opens the show with a direct address to her confidant, the audience. Co-founder and artistic director of Red House, Austin said she began preparing for the role in October, knowing it would be a big undertaking. Written as a one-act performance by Margaret Edson, “Wit” won the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1999. The plot of the show revolved around the theme of punctuation. One scene shows a scholarly debate about the use of a semicolon or comma in John Donne’s Holy Sonnet 10 beginning “Death be not proud.” A vivid memory for the protagonist, this becomes an inspiration for her own life-and-death experiences. “It’s very much a part of the play,” said Redhouse education coordinator Marguerite Mitchell-Sundberg. “Death is a breath between
two ideas, two states of being.” The play also satirically addresses patient care issues. The necessities of “clinical” care are comedic to the audience as Austin’s character regurgitates her name and her doctor’s name to the hospital staff repetitively. “It’s not only about the grieving process but it’s also a really great play to show the flaws in the medical system,” said Mitchell-Sundberg. The title “Wit” refers to the intelligence of the patient, who clings to her past dignity, experiences and education despite the challenging circumstances she faces. Identifying with the challenges in the play, some audience members revealed undergoing or watching similar scenes unfold in their own lives during the postshow Q-and-A session. “Theater is great for creating a place for dialogue,” said Austin, adding it “gives people time to talk and process.” This weekend’s Talkback Series was hosted by Rev. Roko Sherry Chayat, a Rinzai Zen Master, and Ginger Denny, president and support group facilitator at Grace’s Gardens, a nonprofit organization that offers women support while battling gynecological cancers. “The play is really about how intelligence and knowledge are not the same as wisdom — how wit can circumvent compassion,” said Chayat during the Talkback session. Denny’s work at Grace’s Gardens includes meetings with those dealing with gynecological cancers. She offers meetings, education and fellowship to women in the Central New York area. “Sometimes you get so caught up (that) you
kind of forget,” Denny, a cancer survivor herself, said to the audience. “You get worried about things that don’t matter.” A table outside after the production offered pamphlets and cards with information about ovarian cancer and its warning signs. With a running time of 1 hour, 40 minutes, “Wit” runs for one more weekend at Red House with performances on Jan. 30 at 8 p.m., Feb. 1 at 8 p.m. and Feb. 2 at 2 p.m. firstname.lastname@example.org

colors and, after painting their nails, send them back to get three new colors. Understandably, people were grossed out by the concept of sharing nail polish with strangers. I was, too, until I realized that every time I get a manicure I’m sharing with strangers as well. The only downside to this service is the price. While $18 a month is less than buying one bottle of Chanel nail polish, it would still add up to $216 a year on nail polish. While I love a new bottle of polish, I’m also a student who unfortunately has to spend that money on books. Online shopping seems like the obvious choice simply for convenience, but the downside is that you can’t try on the items. Soon, with the help of augmented reality developer Zugara, online shoppers will be able to try clothes on virtually. The company developed the Webcam Social Shopper, which uses your computer’s webcam to create a simulated view of what a wearable item would actually look like on your body. I can’t wait for this technology to be featured on my favorite e-commerce sites. While that tan blazer may look great on a J.Crew model, I can avoid the disappointment when it arrives and the shade makes me look a bit washed out. Zugara’s technology also implements a social element. Users can take pictures of their virtual ensembles and share them on social media websites like Facebook or Twitter. Technology and fashion may seem like they’re on two different spheres, but they’re more intertwined than ever. Shopping is easier, more fun and more interactive with each new online shopping model. While Destiny USA may be enough for some, trying out some of these new revolutionary shopping sites can lead to a more exceptional look.

VILLANOVA FROM PAGE 20
stormed the floor after the big win. The Orange tried to pull out another close win after edging out Louisville and No. 21 Cincinnati in the past week. This time it couldn’t. “I thought it was an unbelievable effort. Both teams gave a tremendous, tremendous effort,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “I thought that we couldn’t get going offensively for a long time. We hung in there and battled.” Through regulation, Syracuse was hot and cold. The Orange was only 19-of-55 from the field (34.5 percent) and just 1-of-5 from the arc in the first half. At the 7:38 mark of the first half, Villanova had a 12-point lead. With an 8-0 run toward the end of the first half and Jerami Grant’s assertiveness at the start of the second, Syracuse wrestled back the lead and clung to it for the rest of regulation. “It’s tough. They got off to a good lead, we fought back,” forward C.J. Fair said. “At one point, we had control of the game.”
MEN’S BASK ETBA LL With one minute left, the Orange held a 61-58 lead with the fans in Wells Fargo growing louder for an intense final few possessions. Wildcats head coach Jay Wright called a timeout with 14 seconds left. All the Orange needed was to guard the 3-point line for 14 seconds. And it did – at first. With eight seconds left,
“It’s always the danger to be able to throw that out there to get that open look. That’s what they got and they made it – to their credit.” Jim Boeheim
SU HEAD COACH
James Bell shot a contested 3 that clanged off of the rim. Villanova center Mouphtaou Yarou brought down the rebound, though, and kicked the ball
out to Ryan Arcidiacono in the left corner. His attempt swished through the net, knotting the game at 61 with 2.2 seconds to play. Up three late, SU decided to play straight-up defense rather than foul before Villanova could attempt a 3-pointer. Had the Orange grabbed a defensive rebound, the plan would have worked. “I thought we defended it, we didn’t get the rebound,” Boeheim said. “It’s always the danger to be able to throw that out there to get that open look. That’s what they got and they made it – to their credit.” The end of regulation put Syracuse in a tough situation going into overtime. Grant fouled out with 5:22 left, and center Baye Moussa Keita picked up his fifth about a minute later. With a small lineup and no depth, Boeheim said there was too much time left to foul. He did not trust his team would get the rebound because of the size disadvantage. If Villanova snagged the board off of a missed free throw, it would have had time for another shot. In overtime, Villanova seized control. Bell hit two 3-pointers, the second pushing Villanova’s lead to 69-65 with 1:55 left. Trevor Cooney

and Michael Carter-Williams missed both 3s they attempted. “We just kept attacking, trying to get to the line. It was mostly on the defensive end. We needed to get out on the shooters at the end,” Carter-Williams said. “They were getting to the line a lot. That didn’t help us either.” Syracuse missed three critical free throws in overtime, two of which could’ve tied the game. In the final 13 seconds of overtime, the Wildcats hit three of their four free throws. With five seconds left, they had a six-point lead. Villanova’s student sections, located on both sides of the court, began pushing their way to the edge of the court, toppling chairs and knocking over tables. When the final second melted off of the clock, mayhem ensued. A slow start and ample missed opportunities caught up to the Orange. “I never think the game’s over,” Fair said. “I knew we had a shot at coming back and winning this game, but it just didn’t go our way.” email@example.com @chris_iseman

comebacks to beat Louisville and No. 21 Cincinnati in its last two games, but the magic ran out Saturday, as SU was held scoreless in the final 3:36 of regulation. “We’ve been really good down the stretch and today we weren’t,” Boeheim said. Carter-Williams, who was the hero of those last two wins, committed a turnover, missed Syracuse’s final shot from the field and misfired on a potential game-clinching free throw in the final two minutes.
“We just tried to take some of the clock down by holding the ball out and using the ball screens. We didn’t execute.” Michael Carter-Williams
SYRACUSE POINT GUARD
It was a tight matchup throughout much of the second half, but the Orange broke it open with less than five minutes to play. Brandon Triche received a firm chest pass from Carter-Williams and lined up a 3-pointer from the left wing. Syracuse led 57-53. Triche was greeted at halfcourt by his point guard, who could sense the Orange was finally taking control. With a jolt of confidence, Triche wanted the ball in his hands. On the ensuing possession, he sliced right through the lane for an easy layup to put SU up by six. The teams traded buckets before a Villanova turnover gave Syracuse the ball with 3:18 to play. That’s when Boeheim called for patience along the sideline. And that’s when CarterWilliams went off of the rails, losing the ball and falling to the ground after his failed attempt to split a pair of defenders at the top of the key. “That was a bad play,” Boeheim said. “You just don’t do that in that situation.” Villanova guard Darrun Hilliard converted the turnover into a fast-break layup. Syracuse’s lead shrunk to four points, but the Orange remained in control. Boeheim stuck to the plan. The Syracuse players stayed patient and waited while Cart-
andrew renneisen | staff photographer MICHAEL CARTER-WILLIAMS struggled Saturday afternoon, finishing 4-of-17 from the field and turning the ball over five times in Syracuse’s 75-71 overtime loss to the Wildcats. Carter-Williams scored 17 points, but was streaky late in regulation and overtime. er-Williams methodically dribbled the ball between hands out at the top. With 10 seconds left on the clock, the play began with a screen by SU center DaJuan Coleman. Carter-Williams dribbled around the right side and the possession ended with a missed jumper by C.J. Fair. Syracuse received a fresh 35 seconds when Villanova knocked the rebound out of bounds, but Carter-Williams’ drive off of another set of ball screens saw a forced pass become another turnover. “Once Mike was driving, I think he was more so looking to find open players,” Triche
said. “But there wasn’t really an open player so I think he put himself sometimes in bad positions.” Despite the team’s inept offensive play down the stretch, Syracuse remained out in front entering the final minute. The Orange took possession up three after a Mouphtaou Yarou free throw. Once again the ball was in Carter-Williams’ hands, but his runner in the lane with 36 seconds left was too strong. Villanova still had life. The Wildcats’ game-tying 3-point attempt by Ryan Arcidiacono missed, and Villanova
had to put the Orange at the free-throw line. Carter-Williams stepped to the line for a oneand-one with a chance to end the game with 18.8 seconds remaining. He left it short. This time, Arcidiacono drilled another game-tying 3-pointer from the corner with 2.2 seconds to go, forcing overtime and setting the stage for another court-storming upset. “We made a couple bad plays, but we were up three and with that ball,” Boeheim said. “You got to make that free throw in that situation and the game’s over.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Grant sparks SU off bench; early struggles doom Syracuse By Ryne Gery and Chris Iseman THE DAILY ORANGE
PHILADELPHIA – When the second half started and Syracuse had a six-point deficit to close, Jerami Grant took it upon himself to take control at both ends of the floor. The freshman scored seven straight points in the first two minutes of the second half to carry the Orange to a one-point lead against Villanova in Syracuse’s 75-71 overtime loss to the Wildcats on Saturday. Grant fouled out with about five minutes left in regulation, but the Orange might not have been in position for the win without his efforts. Grant went 3-of-7 from the field, hit all five of his free throws and finished the game with 12 points in his 27 minutes on the floor. “He played really well. It hurts us to go small. But Brandon did a good job in that spot. Jerami had a really good game. He was huge to start the second half,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “He scored four quick points right away and got us back in the game right away.” Villanova had a 32-26 lead at the start of the second half. Almost immediately, Grant drew a foul on James Bell and knocked down both free throws to make it 32-28. Then, at the other end of the floor, he knocked the ball away from Villanova forward Daniel Ochefu, and C.J. Fair managed to grab the loose ball. Fair missed the transition jumper, but Grant grabbed the rebound, drove to the basket and made the putback to make it 32-30. After JayVaughn Pinkston lost the ball out of bounds at the other end, Grant drained a 3-pointer from the right wing that completed his stretch of dominance and gave Syracuse a 33-32 lead, its first of the game. With James Southerland ineligible, Grant’s playing time has increased. He’s taken advantage of every minute. In the four games Southerland’s been out, Grant’s averaging 10 points per game. “Jerami was great in the second half,” guard Michael Carter-Williams said. “He ended up fouling out of the game, which was tough. He’s a great lift for our team.” When Grant fouled out, Syracuse felt his loss. Without the 6-foot-8 forward, the Orange’s

lineup became smaller, especially when Baye Moussa Keita fouled out a minute later. Syracuse missed Grant’s activeness off of the bench. The player who was responsible for putting the Orange in position to win couldn’t be there to help Syracuse try to grind out the victory.
Opening 10-0 run gives Wildcats confidence Villanova had Syracuse’s vaunted 2-3 zone scrambling around the court in the opening minutes. Crisp passes and ball fakes led to easy jump shots and drives for the Wildcats. They dictated the game with their flawless

execution and stormed out to a 10-0 lead at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday. The early run ignited the home crowd and gave Villanova confidence it could pull the upset over the No. 3 Orange. And that’s exactly what the Wildcats did, coming out on top in a dramatic 75-71 overtime victory after losing their lead late in the second half. “They jumped out to a heavy lead there on us in the beginning, and we was playing catchup after that for a little while,” said Grant. “Probably all the way up until the middle of the second half it was playing catch-up.” Villanova came out with a perfect first possession. The home team swung the ball around the top of the key and worked it back up top to point guard Ryan Arcidiacono. He got free with a pump fake and found backcourt mate Darrun Hilliard, who gave a fake of his own before dropping a runner through the basket. After a goaltending call following a turnover, Hilliard nailed a 3-pointer from the left

corner to put his team up 7-0. Like the first possession, a handful of passes got the zone moving before Hilliard escaped to the corner. James Bell joined the fun with a 3 that caused the Villanova faithful to erupt and Boeheim to stand and call for a timeout. Boeheim remained calm despite the big run, but the Wildcats bounded to the sideline with confidence and excitement. “They did a good job setting the tempo,” said Fair. “They hit a couple tough shots, and we was missing a lot of shots early.” Syracuse battled back with seven unanswered points, highlighted by an alley-oop dunk by Rakeem Christmas that got the Orange going. Villanova head coach Jay Wright was livid on the sidelines following the play. His team’s perfect start was over as VU’s lead was cut to six due to the blown defensive play. Red-faced, Wright screamed to his players before admonishing them on the bench while pointing to the basket where Christmas just finished his dunk. Wright kept the intensity up as SU closed the lead, and his players maintained the advantage for the entire first half. “I think sometimes energy is lacking when we see that these guys are making shots,” SU guard Brandon Triche said, “and they’re making plays because of our lack of energy, then we pick it up.” Syracuse cut the lead to three on Triche’s 3 with 1:22 to play in the first half. But Villanova responded with a 3-pointer by Arcidiacono, and a steal and layup finished by Hilliard to retake momentum. Villanova would take a six-point lead into the break. Syracuse’s offense didn’t click until after halftime, and it cost the Orange in a close matchup that came down to the final shot of regulation. Said Boeheim: “We couldn’t get going offensively for a long time and we hung in there and battled and we had a little run to get our offense going in the middle, later part of the second half.” email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org

Marasco sees time as attack, in midfield; SU improves at X By David Wilson ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
JoJo Marasco was counted on as one of Syracuse’s most reliable scorers last season. He recorded a point in all but one of the Orange’s games, despite spending the season transitioning to midfield. During the scrimmages Saturday, though, Marasco was back behind the net and setting up chances for his teammates.
“I’ve played attack all my life, so the fact that I get to go back there and Coach Donahue and Coach Desko are giving me the opportunity to do that is real exciting.” JoJo Marasco
“He does a very nice job on inverts,” SU head coach John Desko said. “He can dodge against a pole or a short stick.” Marasco dished out three assists in the opening 15-10 win against Hofstra, then followed it up with a goal and two assists in limited action
in a 16-6 win against Holy Cross. The midfielder twice assisted Luke Cometti in the opener, plus one to Derek Maltz, primarily from the attack position behind the net. It’s a familiar place on the field for the attackturned-midfielder, and it yielded the sort of results that were expected from the senior when he first arrived at Syracuse. “I do feel comfortable back there,” Marasco said. “I’ve played attack all my life, so the fact that I get to go back there and Coach (Kevin) Donahue and Coach Desko are giving me the opportunity to do that is real exciting.” Marasco’s ability to make plays in the midfield was highlighted by a laser of a goal in the win against Holy Cross. The plethora of assists from behind the net to cutting teammates showed just how invaluable he is to the Orange. His scoring ability is well-documented, but on Saturday Desko said Marasco showcased he “can find the open guy.” And he did so seemingly effortlessly. In the first quarter of the game against the Pride, Marasco found a cutting Maltz for a goal with 5:26 remaining. Less than five minutes later, he found Cometti on a similar play. On each, Marasco was playing in more of an attack position, waiting for the cutters to work their way through the slot in front of the net. While he’s still listed as a midfielder and that’ll be a major role he plays, Marasco sees himself playing behind the net because his

JoJo Marasco’s passing and rule changes to speed up the game helped SU’s offense. coaches have faith in him not to let up on his defensive duties. He can pass, shoot and defend, and SU isn’t squandering any opportunities to let him play to his full potential. “I’ll be coming out of the midfield box because I can play a little bit of defense, too,” Marasco said. “I’ve been working on it for three years now with Coach (Lelan) Rogers, but they have the faith in me to go behind and still get back on defense.” Optimism at the X As Syracuse slumped to its worst finish in recent memory a year ago, the Orange’s struggle to find a consistent option at the faceoff X served as a microcosm for the season. Whether it was a lack of talent or a lack of experience, SU was never able to find someone to step up and win faceoffs consistently. Saturday’s scrimmages provided hope for the future. “We’ve got a couple of new kids out there that are going to keep getting better with experience,” Desko said. In its first game, a 15-10 win against Hofstra, the Orange won 16 of 28 faceoffs, 57 percent, with Chris Daddio winning 8-of-11. In the second game SU was even better, winning 16-of-25 for 64 percent. Daddio again led the way, going 6-for-7. But Cal Paduda, who attempted 11 faceoffs in the opener, was nearly as good, winning 5-of-6. In both games it was Paduda, a freshman, who got the call for the first faceoff. “I had some jitters for the first couple faceoffs, but after that it was really smooth,”
Paduda said. “Everyone relaxed down, I relaxed down.” The Orange maintains a by-committee approach to faceoffs, so Paduda doesn’t take much stock in getting the call for the first faceoff. The by-committee approach does help, as Paduda is getting advice from some of the more experienced players. Daddio, Elliott Burr and Brendan Conroy have all taken faceoffs for longer than Paduda has, so he gets the opportunity to pick up tips from his more knowledgeable teammates. “Every time after a faceoff I’ll go up and talk to them, be like, ‘OK, he did this, what should I do next time?’” Paduda said. “Or we’ll share each other hints, like what works on this guy, what works on that guy. So we’re a really good unit — a team within a team.” SU was 11 and 18 percent better than its season average on faceoffs a year ago in the games against the Pride and Crusaders, respectively. Daddio was the star of the day at the X, losing just four of his 18 faceoff attempts on the day. Daddio appears to be the most reliable option with just three weeks until the regular season opener. But with a core of underclassmen, someone else could emerge from within the team and give Syracuse the faceoff jolt it so desperately needed a year ago. “Time will tell,” Desko said. “The freshmen here got a chance to go against two different teams, a set of different faceoff guys from each group, so it was great experience.” firstname.lastname@example.org
Syracuse tried out five different faceoff men in its two scrimmages against Hofstra and Holy Cross on Saturday. Here’s how the prospective faceoff specialists did: PLAYER

Marasco or Maltz. But before Syracuse darted out of the tunnel shouting, eager to face its first opponents of the season, Hofstra battled out a 15-12 victory over Holy Cross. It was a test in itself for the Orange to come out ready against a team that was already warmed up. “Our goal in the locker room, knowing that they scrimmaged before us was to get a good stretch in, get a good warm-up and come out hot,” Marasco said. “We won a couple faceoffs real fast and that was huge for us.” SU head coach John Desko sat his starters against Hofstra, including Maltz and Megill. The Pride crept back into the game throughout the third quarter. With three unassisted goals in the span of two minutes in the fourth, Hofstra trailed just 10-9. But with about four minutes remaining, Desko put some of his top scorers back on the field, including Rice, who scored from in close. “I don’t think we worry about it as much as others,” Desko said of the score and result. “It was good I thought for the psyche that we pulled ahead at the end because I know Hofstra kept their starters out there for the whole time.” Maltz finished with four goals and an assist, Cometti scored three and Marasco assisted on three against Hofstra. If Desko’s players were worried, they hardly showed it. In the closing minutes of the fourth quarter, the second team put the result out of doubt. The game ended prematurely when Eric DeJohn hurdled himself into the crease from the left wing, slipping the ball past Hofstra goaltender Jason Rosenzweig while getting clattered by a high hit that left

him on the turf for a minute. The foul and the game were then waved off, but the goal stood and the scrimmage ended 15-10. He did not return for the second game against Holy Cross. Against the Crusaders, the Orange got off to a slightly slower start with regulars Maltz, Ianzito and Megill out of the lineup. “He didn’t play in the second scrimmage because he really doesn’t have anything to prove for us,” Desko said of Maltz. “We want to keep him healthy right now.” John Hannan opened the scoring for Holy Cross at 13:08, cutting in from the right, past Kyle Carey, unassisted. But Billy Ward answered with a goal, and that started the Orange’s dominance. The Crusaders hung with Syracuse for a while in the first half, but the Orange defense ensured Holy Cross’ early lead would be its only one of the game. In the first minute of the second quarter, with SU up 3-1, Sean Young and Brandon Mullins caught Clay Haarmann behind SU’s net and ruthlessly stripped the Hofstra attack. With the Orange leading 9-4 in the third, Carey and Ryan Palasek sandwiched James Kennedy in transition. SU only gave up two more goals with both coming in garbage time well after the regulars had left the game. A Syracuse goal ended the game as Brenny Daly hammered home with 18 seconds remaining. The head referee waved his arms and blew the whistle. The day was done, and Syracuse had proven itself. “When they see a goal as the end result of running an offense, it gives more validation to what they’re supposed to be doing,” Desko said of his players. “I think they execute better.” email@example.com

VILLA-NO-FUN Inconsistency catches up to Orange as Syracuse falls to unranked Villanova in OT By Chris Iseman SPORTS EDITOR
HILADELPHIA – The seconds ticked off of the clock, each one moving Syracuse closer to a fate it’s flirted with many times this season. This time, there were no clutch shots, at least from the Orange’s side. This time, there was no defensive stand. There were five extra minutes of basketball, but the Orange only displayed the inconsistency it demonstrated throughout an entire game. In a dramatic back-and-forth battle, the missed shots, the missed free throws, the turnovers and the failure to close out shooters caught up to No. 3 Syracuse. Villanova upset the Orange 75-71 in overtime at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday with the type of grind-itout effort that defined Syracuse (18-2, 6-1 Big East) to this point. It was the Wildcats’ (13-7, 4-3) second straight upset over a top-five team after they beat No. 5 Louisville on Tuesday, and for the second time in one week, Wildcat fans

Carter-Williams struggles late in game with up-and-down performance By Ryne Gery STAFF WRITER
PHILADELPHIA — Jim Boeheim held his hand out as he yelled to his point guard. Approaching the threeminute mark, his Syracuse team held a six-point lead. It was time to wait, be
patient and put the game away. His point guard Michael CarterWilliams got the message and parked himself well beyond the 3-point line and waited. He calmly swayed the ball back-and-forth between his right and left hands until only nine ticks
remained on the shot clock. It was time to go, so Carter-Williams took off and recklessly turned the ball over. He ran an identical isolation play twice on the next possession and came up empty each time. “We just tried to take some of the
clock down by holding the ball out and using the ball screens,” CarterWilliams said. “We didn’t execute.” Syracuse’s inability to execute down the stretch left the door open for Villanova and set in motion a dramatic sequence of events in the
Wildcats’ 75-71 overtime victory Saturday. It was Villanova’s second upset of a top-five team at the Wells Fargo Center this week after it upset No. 5 Louisville on Tuesday. The No. 3 Orange made late-game

Early offensive outburst surges Syracuse past Hofstra, Holy Cross in pair of scrimmages By Jacob Klinger ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
Two quick leads ended in bench-emptying wins for Syracuse as the Orange swept its season-opening scrimmages with Hofstra and Holy Cross on Saturday in the Carrier Dome.
