Eat to Live Food Cooperative revises budget, plans re-opening By Lydia Wilson asst. copy editor
hen the Eat to Live Food Cooperative on Syracuse’s South Side opened in October, residents could find fresh food just around the corner. But in December, just two months after opening, the co-op closed — forcing community members to once again rely on their familiar, tedious practices to obtain the food they needed. “Half of the people in the neighborhood don’t have cars. They buy what little food they can at local corner stores, or carpool to grocery stores in other towns. It’s been difficult, as it has been for many years,” said Howie Hawkins, one of the co-op’s board members. Residents of the South Side live in a food desert, an area with limited access to affordable, healthy food — especially for those who walk or rely on public transportation. People in food deserts often end up eating food that is overly processed, said Jikyo Bonnie Shoultz, South Side resident and Chaplain at Hendricks Chapel. “It’s not nutritious, and it can be toxic,” Shoultz said. “Co-ops provide organic and locally grown food. These are the qualities that we need to bring to people.” The co-op plans to meet these needs in the South Side once again, as the board hopes to re-open the co-op this spring, possibly in April.
The original closure was due to a lack of money — which, for Hawkins, didn’t come as a surprise. Hawkins said he knew it would be difficult for the co-op to generate enough revenue in order to become stable. Hawkins said that the board views the closure as a delay, not a setback. With the re-opening, the board plans to show that it’s learned from its mistakes to provide consistent access to healthy food on the South Side.

“We’ve been working on the project for seven years, and there have always been hurdles along the way,” Hawkins said. “It’s a part of every business, especially the new ones.” The re-opening, complete with a new business plan and management team, is meant to make the store more accessible to customsee eat

NYPIRG lobbies for education By Rebecca Shafer contributing writer
Lindzee Powell knows that she studies at Syracuse University, her “top choice school,” because of financial aid. Because of that, she feels a sense of duty to help those who currently don’t have access to the same opportunities. Powell, a freshman in the College of Arts and Sciences, was a part of a group of New York Public Interest Research Group affiliated SU students who convened at 5:15 a.m. Wednesday to drive to Albany and lobby their platform on higher education to state politicians. Ten SU students joined a mix of more than 100 students, faculty and see nypirg page 9

samuel adams cold snap
t o day ’ s w e at h e r
New seasonal brew doubles as shower beer By Tom Sharkey staff writer
A couple of weeks ago, I received a recommendation from my Thirsty Thursday photographer, Nicole, to review Sam Adams’ new seasonal release, Cold Snap. I tried it the day after she recommended it and immediately took her up on the suggestion to write about Cold Snap. Since then, I have been trying to find the perfect context to sit down and give the Belgian white ale a proper tasting experience. Fast forward to Sunday night, when I was browsing the Internet and came upon a very interesting article discussing the “science” behind a shower beer. For those who are unfamiliar, the illustrious shower beer is a staple for any binge drinker who’s in a rush, but the benefits of a shower beer extend beyond simply killing two birds with one stone, apparently. The article claimed that the steam produced from a hot shower heightens your sense of taste and smell, which is why shower beers
are so enjoyable. That was all I needed to read before running to my fridge and grabbing my towel on the way to the bathroom. The Cold Snap is almost aggressively flavorful, but not in a bad way. I waited as the bathroom filled up with steam and, subsequently, I took the first gulp of my shower beer. Maybe it was a placebo effect, but the flavor was definitely amplified by the steamy environment. The first thing I noticed was its burst of spices and subtle malt flavor, followed almost immediately by orange and citrus undertones. Usually I can only handle when a beer goes for one type of flavor — either spices or citrus, not both — but Sam Adams’ Cold Snap executes the mixture of flavors perfectly. Despite its full flavor, the Cold Snap isn’t too heavy or overwhelming to enjoy in larger quantities. I’m not going to say on record that I’ve killed the 12-pack of the beer, but I would recommend snapping some up before spring kicks into full gear.

Essentials course to be offered School adds interactive two-part sequence for non-business majors By Jacob Pramuk and Brett Samuels the daily orange
Students who aren’t enrolled in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management will be able to get a taste of the business world through a twocourse program. Whitman will offer a two-course sequence titled “Business Essentials” beginning this fall. The course will teach business fundamentals across a variety of disciplines to non-Whitman majors, addressing a need for a general introductory class for students who haven’t decided to pursue business. The sequence will be available to sophomores, juniors and seniors. “We have students who might not want to take a minor or don’t have

Phases 2, 3 bring added signs, modern design By Ellen Meyers asst. news editor
In its first phase, the Connective Corridor project revamped and revitalized parts of the Syracuse community. By the end of summer 2015, there will be even more additions and improvements. Initial planning for the second and third phases of the Connective Corridor project began earlier this month and excavation is slated to begin in early March. The project will reconstruct sidewalks, bicycle lanes and vehicle travel lanes, as well as add improved signage and intersection and street crossings. But Linda Hartsock, the director of the Connective Corridor, wants to do more than that. In an information meeting Wednesday morning at the Nancy Cantor Warehouse, she said the project also focuses on encourag-
ing people, especially Syracuse University students, to go out into the city. “If all we’ve done is build beautiful streets, but we haven’t encouraged people to use them, move through the city, interact with businesses, go to arts and cultural venues, get students engaged and experiencing the city…I think we’ve failed as a project,” she said. “We are not just building a beautiful building, a beautiful street,” Hartsock continued. “We’re building a city for the next generation.” Hartsock said the Connective Corridor bus route gave rides to about 190,000 passengers last year, and she hopes to reach 200,000 passengers this year. Another part of the Connective Corridor’s project is enhancing the Civic Strip. Not only will there be better pedestrian signage and lighting, but there will also be interactive design
elements to the city, said Joe Sisko, the assistant director of Upstate: Center for Design, Research and Real Estate.

Executive branch supports eco-friendly politics
uring the last month, President Barack Obama has stuck to his State of the Union vow to advance his agenda “with or without Congress,” pushing new standards and regulations to combat and mediate climate change. Due to the pressing nature of overarching environmental issues and the polarization of politics, this decision-making power shaped and utilized by the federal government’s executive branch is necessary. While other elected politicians may not see the urgency of dealing with climate change, Obama surely sees the difference Americans have to make. During his first term, the president gave up on climate change through legislation when it stalled in the U.S. Senate. But this did not stop executive action on climate change. Even while climate change legislation was stuck and dying, the Obama administration and the Environmental Protection Agency were beginning to produce their own solutions to the problems at hand. While the EPA made some announcements of regulations before the State of the Union this year, such as the increase in car gas mileage standards to 50.4 miles per gallon by 2025, February has seen a roll of new solutions one after another. In the beginning of February, the Obama administration announced the creation of seven regional “climate hubs,” which will work to aid the country’s farmers to adapt to climate change including changing weather patterns and increased pests.
MEG CALLAGHAN 21ST CENTURY TREE HUGGER
The following week, the president revealed a $1 billion “climate resiliency” fund for communities affected by central California’s drought. That same week, Secretary of State John Kerry directed all American diplomatic missions to make climate change a priority issue. With this, Kerry also started talks with Indonesia, which struggles heavily with deforestation, and encouraged the country to sign a major climate treaty. Obama continued on with new regulations, ordering the EPA to develop new, tougher fuel standards for heavy-duty trucks, which transport most of our resources and goods across all parts of the country, according to a Feb. 18 New York Times article. With new regulations in the transportation sector, our country can begin to make major cutbacks on our greenhouse gas emissions, as transportation emissions are one of the top sources for greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide. Combining the efforts to reduce our environmental effects while creating plans to deal with the effects we have already set into play shows our government is looking out for the future of its people. While it is unfortunate that leadership on these issues has fallen solely on the executive branch, it is not a sign of a tyrant in office or a
new “big brother” state. It is a sign that other branches are not taking science seriously and are not looking out for their constituents. Climate change will not only affect our environment, it will affect our nation’s human health and our economy. It will hurt our livelihoods and our society. In some cases, even in our own country, these changes are already hurting or endangering our lives. When Congress is stuck in the mud, at least we have the executive office to keep our nation’s health and happiness in the forefront of planning and policy for the future. The president must continue with these endeavors while other policymakers refuse to make changes, for the sake of both the planet and the people on it.

‘Mindy Project’ provides alternative comedic voice
he Mindy Project” proves Fox’s axe might be mightier than Mindy Kaling’s pen. As ratings show, few people may know (or perhaps care) about “The Mindy Project” being one of the best shows on television. The underrated series follows gynecologist Mindy Lahiri as she searches for love in New York City frocked in ensembles as sunny as her optimism. While one might assume the brainchild of Mindy Kaling, a former writer, producer and girl-genius from “The Office,” would be a smashing success, ratings have been consistently low. According to TV by the Numbers, the Jan. 14 episode of “The Mindy Project” received a rating of 1.1, meaning less than 1.4 million adults ages 18-49 watched the show. On Jan. 28, Fox aired the winter finale and put the show on hiatus until April 1. Such a move has some wondering — even E! Network, which included the series in its annual “Save One Show” campaign — if it will be canceled. Currently, E!’s website lists the show’s future as “TBD.” Still, such a decision would be a disservice to the public. One of “The Mindy Project’s” most endearing qualities is its resemblance to real life. What more can you expect from Kaling, a New York Times best-selling author, whose book “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” offered up such truisms for women including “I want a schedule-keeping, waking-up-early, wallet-carrying, non-Velcro-shoe-wearing man.” In the show’s debut episode, Lahiri got rip-roaring drunk at an ex’s wedding and proceeded to give a toasted speech, which included the lines, “Or the time Tom told me — when we were having sex — that he wanted to marry me and make me pregnant with six babies.” “The Mindy Project” acts out every fantasy that crosses your mind. Lahiri is you in 10 years, perhaps 20 pounds heavier depending on your gym habits.

calls you out on identifying an eighth person as your best friend, your reply is, “Best friend isn’t a person…it’s a tier.” And she knows sometimes you do your best thinking after drinking, proclaiming, “after four vodka sodas I realized, I had something to say.” In addition to a dose of reality, “The Mindy Project,” boasts several gueststar appearances. Seth Rogen played Mindy’s love from Jewish camp. In season two, the ubiquitous James Franco starred as a doctor looking to give Mindy a run for her cutest-docin-the-office crown. Lastly, “The Mindy Project” is a valiant effort to overcome Hollywood’s gender bias. According to The Writers Guild of America West 2013 Staffing brief, out of 1722 writers in the 2011-2012 season, there were 637 guild members working on comedies — only 185 were women. Cutting “The Mindy Project” only further reinforces “Girls” creator Lena Dunham’s theory, which she expressed recently in an interview with Grantland on Feb. 20. “Networks and studios still seem to be almost pathologically incapable of understanding that women make up 52 percent of the planet and therefore programming that has women at its center is not a fad or a trend, it’s a necessary expression,” Dunham said. “The Mindy Project” is an expression that should be viewed by the masses. Do it because Kaling gives a voice to your so-called put together life. Do it to see your favorite celebrities making an appearance. And lastly, do it for the sisterhood so that more networks will recognize the wonder of women. Erin Jensen is a graduate student in broadcast and digital journalism. Her column appears weekly.

Project should benefit local businesses The Connective Corridor has been beneficial in some respects since it started, but has much to improve on during its second and third phases, specifically with local businesses. During Wednesday’s Connective Corridor public information session, plans for the second and third phases of the city project were revealed. This is the first major step in the project since former chancellor Nancy Cantor, who proposed the $42.5 million project in 2005, left Syracuse University. The Connective Corridor, which is the city’s largest public works project in the last 30 years, is now in the hands of Chancellor Kent Syverud, who should follow through with the remaining phases and improve on Cantor’s vision. Since its creation, the project has
been most beneficial to SU students. However, it should be beneficial to both the campus and the city. While it has been about nine years since the project was first proposed, some businesses downtown are still questioning how the Connective Corridor can help them to improve business, which shows it is not as successful as it was hoped to be. The project’s first phase made downtown more accessible with the addition of the bus route, but it has not improved business as much as it should have. The Connective Corridor has helped students on campus, but it should be focusing on improving local business in the next two phases. Improving downtown’s infrastructure may be the key to improving business downtown. In the next phases, the project plans to make

downtown more pedestrian-friendly, cyclist-friendly and accessible by increasing car lanes and parking spots. These are simple measures to making downtown a more attractive destination, which can ultimately improve businesses. Additions like the Kinection, a motion-activated interactive kiosk, however, are not. Last year, 19 lights on University Avenue along the Connective Corridor were vandalized, which cost more than $20,000 to repair. The project’s planners should take vandalism to items along the corridor into consideration, since an expensive, technologic kiosk would also run the risk of being damaged. The Connective Corridor project didn’t do enough to help local businesses in its first phase. Planners should make this the focus in the final phases of the project.

Cornell University students design, develop fashion line to add options to plus-size clothing By Claire Moran staff writer
illustration by lindsay leigh contributing illustrator
eb. 23 through March 1 marks National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, which promotes awareness of eating disorders and body image issues. A group of students at Cornell University is creating and developing a clothing line that aims to stretch body image consciousness to celebrate all shapes and sizes. Brandon Wen, a junior fiber science and apparel design major, worked with classmates to create a plus-sized clothing line for a project last year. “For me, the draw to plus-sized people is their bodies and trying to find what it is I like about them, seeing them as something more objective and artful and less like this is a body and this is what the standard is and this isn’t,” he said. Wen and Laura Zwanziger, also a junior fiber science and apparel design major, worked with an exchange student to create the line for a class project. Wen and Zwanziger’s “Ruben’s Women” line is named for painter Peter Paul Ruben, a Baroque painter who is famous for his sexual portrayal of fleshy women, Zwanziger said. Wen and Zwanziger were looking to design clothes to fit precisely to plus-sized bodies. They saw a deficiency in clothing that was available for plus-sized women. Clothing is often designed to fit other sizes and just enlarged for plus-size clothing, Zwanziger said. Zwanziger cited the statistic that plussized women hold 28 percent of the buying power and use only 17 percent. She added that the deficiency in the market exists because markets shift and what’s considered “beautiful” also shifts. “It means that garments are not there because nobody’s making them and if they’re making them, they’re poorly made or shapeless,” Zwanziger said. “People were really upset because fat sits differently
on everybody. The generalizations of plus size meant that you were wearing a sack. Nobody feels good in that.” Wen and Zwanziger said the biggest challenge they faced throughout the process was the lack of plus-sized mannequins that were available. They went through an extensive process to create their own mannequin. Most existing mannequins, Zwanziger said, are created based on the fit of the inside of a woven article of clothing “That’s why a lot of clothes don’t fit anybody regardless of their size because they’re not designed for a body, they’re designed for the inside of a woven garment,” she said. While he was designing the line, Wen said he was trying to address the stigma within the industry of plus size being equal to obesity. He said he wanted to promote “people accepting their bodies the way they are.” He said he is interested in the artistic aspect of designing for plus-sized women, and since Zwanziger has been abroad, Wen has focused on moving the line in this direction and will promote it at the school fashion show in April. “I want to take it in more of an artistic direction, making the clothing a bit more conceptual, because I know for the project it was more of a product development course,” Wen said. “I am more interested in making an art piece and part of it is deciding what that means for this specific niche because there’s a lack of it in plus-sized clothing.” Many design schools are “very scared” to design for plus-sized figures because it’s more challenging, Zwanziger said. “(It’s about) really designing for a body and taking inspiration from a body, as opposed to trying to fit everybody into one standard system because there’s so many bodies out there,” she said. “You can’t say that one’s right and one’s wrong because they’re all different and they all deserve to have choices.” firstname.lastname@example.org

eat to live ers while also increasing revenue to sustain business into the future. When it re-opens, the store will be fully stocked to offer variety. It will also have a new café portion that Hawkins said he hopes will increase revenue and traffic. Though its doors are closed, the co-op has also worked with members to pay membership fees. The fee is a one-time $100 payment, and many members have been paying this off $10 per month, Hawkins said. With the membership, customers can get reduced rate items. Shoultz, who was also a leader of the Hendricks hunger awareness and action campaign for the fall semester, said she hopes to see the co-op offer food that is not only local and organic, but also affordable for poorer South Side residents. “To me, co-ops aren’t necessarily always cheaper. For some people, expense is the most critical factor,” Shoultz said. When the store re-opens, the board hopes to address issues of affordability, in part now that it has received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program licensing, Hawkins said. SNAP benefits couldn’t be used at the store before, he said. As a South Side resident, Shoultz also said she would like to see the co-op educate the community. A lot of people in food deserts have forgotten how to cook foods like fresh vegetables, she said. “Some people on the South Side have community gardens and have worked to educate people in the neighborhoods. If the co-op could also promote that I think it would be really helpful,” she said. Matters of the re-opening were discussed at a co-op board meeting held Tuesday night. Shirley Rowser, co-op board president, said that an important part of the meeting
8 february 27, 2014
was working with the management team on a revised business plan. “The board is working diligently,” Rowser said, “We’re optimistic that we’ll meet our April goal.” During the meeting the board also reviewed applications for a new general manager, Hawkins said. The co-op fired Jim Diamond, Eat to Live’s original general manager, and Hawkins said he believes that finding the right manager will be one of the most crucial steps in the re-opening process. “Even a great manager would’ve had difficulty when the store opened, but we didn���t have the right person for the time,” Hawkins said. “We’ve learned from that hire, and we’re going into this with a little more experience. “ Rowser said she’s looking for knowledge on property laws and finance in the new manager to help counteract any future financial problems the co-op may face. Shoultz said she hopes that city funding can also help prevent future financial problems. She said she believes the city plays a key role in supporting co-ops and eliminating food deserts. “It should be the city’s mission to make sure people are fed well,” she said. Shoultz said she hopes that the Syracuse community will stand behind Eat to Live to make sure they have the funding they need to operate. “It’s too bad co-ops are struggling by themselves when other organizations in town should have the same mission,” Shoultz said. Despite original budget problems, both Hawkins and Rowser said they feel confident about the re-opening. The board says it has learned from the closure and hopes to reduce the size of the food desert. Said Hawkins: “When we do open it’s going to be bigger and better. We have the foundation to operate in the black. I’m confident we’ll make it work.” email@example.com

whitman time for a minor, but with this they can get a basic idea of business,” said Amanda Nicholson, associate dean of undergraduate programs. However, it won’t be structured like a typical course. It will be taught through the lens of a fictional chocolate company, giving students examples of business scenarios and challenges that a company might face in the world, Nicholson said. She said by observing how the company runs, students will run into a series of “teachable moments” that will give them a foundation of business principles. Nicholson said the official layout of the course is still a work in progress, but she added that the format will allow students to learn in a way that’s more exciting than other classes. “Sometimes people think of business as dry, so we’ll try to make these classes as understandable and engaging as possible,” Nicholson said. The creative concept for the course and its accessibility to students outside the Whitman school make the sequence something totally original. “There isn’t anything like that on campus right now,” said Lindsay Rapp, assistant dean of undergraduate programs at Whitman. The sequence is unique because non-Whitman students could previously only take entrylevel courses in specialized subject areas like accounting or entrepreneurship, Rapp said. A team of seven Whitman professors from a variety of disciplines will teach the course, Rapp said. Students will receive a wide base, as they will deal with multiple aspects of running the chocolate company. “You’re going to see the whole gamut,” Rapp said. “You’re going to learn about every area of business.”
Rapp said that students didn’t raise any particular concerns about the lack of a general business course. Rather, Whitman faculty saw a general need to offer fundamental business education to students outside of the school. Nicholson said planning for the course began at the end of the summer when new dean Ken Kavajecz joined the Whitman faculty. Susan Smith, professor of marketing, is one

She said usually professors develop their courses individually, but in this case, all seven faculty members have helped with planning. “It’s been a lot of fun and has been a total collaborative effort,” Smith said. “And in the industry all business functions work together.” Smith said the key teaching points for both semesters have been developed, but now those points have to be woven into the story of the chocolate company. She added that students need to learn the fundamentals of business before more detail is layered on in the course. Enrollment for the fall course, Business Essentials I, will be limited to 200 students, Rapp said. Students who wish to continue the sequence can register for Business Essentials II in the spring. firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com

mayfest Bandier Program, said the MayFest artists reflect a desire to book a variety of sounds. “We wanted to bring an extremely diverse lineup to appeal to the tastes of all the students on campus,” Thomas said. While booking for MayFest and Block Party is done separately, the MayFest organizers take the Block Party lineup into consideration when booking acts, said Andrew Saltman, a MayFest director and a sophomore in the Bandier Program. The directors took the Block Party lineup, which features electronic artist Zedd and rapper 2Chainz, into account when they booked MayFest. “The goal is to have it be one fluid day,”

The Facade Improvement Program allows businesses and students to apply for grants — collectively worth $200,000 — to fund projects they want to pursue, Hartsock said.

Company, said she thinks the project is a great idea. She added that with this project, more people will use the Connective Corridor buses as much as she and the project team hoped for. “I think that every year, it’s been increasing,” she said. “As people are more aware of it, it will catch on and they’ll be able to get the numbers they’re looking for.” Alfieri added that it’s been hard to get people to develop downtown for a long time, but it’s now bouncing back with new businesses opening up. Lockwood said she thinks the project will help bring downtown back into its prime. “Downtown has deteriorated in the past few years and it’s finally seeing a resurgence,” she said. “I remember when downtown was retail, and you could go for lunch, you could go shopping and all of that just went away.” email@example.com | @Ellen_Meyers

nypirg staff from across the state who attended Higher Education Act Day to present proposals for increased funding for higher education in New York state. Once in Albany, the attendees lobbied their platforms directly to state politicians. Julia White, NYPIRG project coordinator, said the event was an “unbelievable opportunity” for the students to sit down with politicians who are directly involved in passing legislature on higher education and tell them their outlooks. White and her group focused on furthering the Tuition Assistance Program in New York state. TAP is a need-based financial aid program that typically provides between $2,500 and $3,000 for students, although the maximum award is $5,000, White said. The program has been around for about 40 years, but there have been changes, White said. TAP used to help cover a student’s tuition, textbooks and housing, but now it can’t even cover tuition. Fewer students are able to get a higher education, and the situation is “further perpetuating social and economic disparity” in New York, she added. The group is hoping that Gov. Andrew Cuomo will update his budget to increase TAP funds. The group also lobbied for the DREAM Act, which Cuomo already said he would approve if it got through the state Senate. The DREAM Act is a piece of legislation that would help undocumented students gain access to financial aid for higher education. Right now, parents of students without citizenship often can’t open a savings account, making it hard to put money aside for school, White said. The act was passed by the New York State Assembly on Tuesday night, and now must pass through the Senate before it goes to
Cuomo for approval. White and the groups also lobbied for increased funding for the State Universities of New York and City Universities of New York, which recently lost $1.7 billion in state funding. This decrease is affecting programs and tuition prices at SUNY and CUNY schools. Politicians often look at the problem and think about how to cap prices, but White said that isn’t enough anymore. “We need to go back and figure out how to lower (tuition) and make it affordable again,” White said.

es, said that her group had great discussions, and that the lobbying was more like a backand-forth conversation between lobbyists and political representatives. Whitney Garcia, a freshman in Arts and Sciences, shared a similar sentiment. She said she thinks that the politicians identify more easily with those affected now that they’ve seen real faces and heard stories from college students. Powell said the group plans to keep advocating reforms in higher education programs. But for now the group feels good about the progress it’s made and the feedback it received on Wednesday. Said Powell: “We’re definitely making a difference and being a voice for those who are not heard.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Festival of the Fantastical Facial Follicle celebrates all things facial hair for first time at Landmark Theatre By Eric Lyons contributing writer
ut down that razor. No Shave November may have been three months ago, but that just means you’ve had more time to grow and groom that masterpiece of facial hair. The best beards, man-sweaters, crumbcollectors — whatever you want to call them — will be on display Thursday at the first-ever Festival of the Fantastical Facial Follicle at the Landmark Theatre from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. The Syracuse Beard Council, a collective that promotes the many social and psychological benefits of facial hair in the Syracuse area, organized the event. The festival will feature live music, food,
beer, beard-related games and wraps up with a best beard award ceremony. There will be a $5 suggested donation at the door. Part
It is a great event. People are just looking for fun, artistic and different things to do and this definitely qualifies. Jess Novak jess and the beards
of the proceeds will be donated to the Saint Baldrick’s Foundation, an
organization that funds research to find a cure for childhood cancer. The festival will begin with a performance by Jess and the Beards, a folk and blues band that plays some classic rock covers. Jess Novak — the Jess of the band’s name — said the band was definitely a perfect fit for the festival, besides the obvious fact that they are named The Beards. “Anyone can have a good time listening to our style of music,” Novak said. Jess and the Beards also have a special song planned as an ode to beards to please the scruffy crowd. “It is a great event. People are just looking for fun, artistic and different things to do and this definitely qualifies.” Novak said. Performances from Remsen
Social Club and Dave & Doug of Homely Jones will follow Jess and the Beards. After the live performances and games end, the event will close with the selection of the best beards. Tracy Tillapaugh, assistant director of SU Career Services, will be one of the judges for the contest. Even though she has no facial hair herself and doesn’t have prior experience in beard competitions, she volunteered when she saw the event on Facebook. “It looked fun and different and promotes a good cause,” Tillapaugh said. The six categories include the Forestry, a f luffy beard similar to bearded legend Paul Bunyan; the Fantasy, a long straggly beard, like Gandalf or Dumbledore; the Focus, the more manicured styles see beard

Two Syracuse University alumni, Chris Renaud and Craig Borten, are getting recognized for their storytelling with “Despicable Me 2” and “Dallas Buyers Club,” respectively, at this weekend’s Academy Awards ceremony. Renaud is the co-director of the animated feature film, while Borten was nominated for his original screenplay, “Dallas Buyers Club.” ln 1989, Renaud graduated from the College of Visual and Performing Arts with a bachelor of fine arts in illustration. In and out of the classroom, Renaud is remembered by his professors as someone who worked hard to use every opportunity to learn more about his craft. Robert Dacey, an illustration professor at SU, had Renaud as a student. “What I remember about Chris was that he used to pick me up from the airport outside of class time. He was steady,” Dacey said. “He worked hard to gain information beyond the classroom. He took it to his advantage.” Following his time at SU, Renaud went into graphic design, before diving into filmmaking full-speed. His career boasts numerous producing, directing, acting and writing positions in Hollywood. At the forefront is his work with the 2012 film Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax” and 2010’s “Despicable Me.” He was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on “Despicable Me 2,” which he codirected with Pierre Coffin. “Despicable Me 2” follows where the original left off, but this time the main character, Gru (Steve Carell), is pulled out of the semi-normal life he had created for himself in order to track down a new super villain for the “Anti-Villain League.” The entire cast is back, but this time with a slew of new characters as well. But Renaud isn’t the only SU alum up for an Oscar this year. Craig Borten, an 1987 SU political science major, and writing partner Melisa Wallack produced the screenplay for “Dallas Buyers Club,” the 2013 biographical, historical and drama film starring Matthew McConaughey. The academy nominated Borten for best original screenplay, but “Dallas Buyers Club” was also nominated for best picture. “Dallas Buyers Club” depicts the life of Ron Woodroof, electrician and hustler, whose life was turned upside down after he was diagnosed HIV see oscar

oscar nomination positive and given 30 days to live. Woodroof goes on a quest to find therapy medicines from Mexico to bring back to America. “It was a 20-year journey,” Borten said of writing the screenplay. “I read an article about (Ron Woodroof) and I was blown away. Everything I knew at the time about mainstream AIDS was the different than the article.” Although Borten majored in political science while at SU, Michael Schoonmaker, chair of the television, radio and film department at SU, said that he wasn’t surprised that Borten made the switch. “A good story is a good story. You don’t have to have a degree to be a successful screenwriter,” Schoonmaker said. “If you’re smart enough to recognize it, you got it. People from many different viewpoints come together to make a film.” Twenty-six years later, both Borten and Renaud are still giving back to the SU community. Over the past winter break, TRF graduate students went on their benchmark trip to Los Angeles, which assistant television, radio and film professor Keith Giglio described as “going behind the gates of Oz.” On the trip, students got to meet with several Hollywood screenwriters, producers and directors, among others. Borten was in attendance. Several graduate students on the trip described Borten as really friendly and laidback. Borten met with the graduate students to offer advice and guidance. “One of our classmates asked him a question about writing for recognition or writing for the heart. (Borten) said he writes what’s in his heart, he wanted to share it,” said TRF graduate student Brenda Palmer. “He sat on (the screenplay) for 20 years, believed in it so much. He didn’t give up on it.”
Renaud also continues to maintain a presence on the SU campus through his fund, the Chris and Lauren Renaud Fund for Illustration, which helps students travel for educational purposes and for industry immersion in the illustration field. His funds have been used thus far to finance five such trips for SU students. Said Dacey: “It’s really easy to not look back but to only be looking forward. (Renaud’s) looking back

Say what? Chinglish comes to Syracuse Stage, shows miscommunication By Vanessa Salman staff writer
heater fanatics, comedy lovers and patrons of the arts alike can take a deep breath: “Chinglish” is making its way to the Syracuse Stage. For those unfamiliar with “Chinglish,” produced by Tony Award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang, the play revolves around an Ameri-
can businessman, named Daniel Cavanaugh, who goes to China in the hopes of scoring a business deal for his family’s sign company. Despite his hopes, things get lost in translation, fueling the comedic center of the plot. Aside from the business aspect, the play follows Cavanaugh as he gets caught up in complex situations, including his involvement with a government official. The poorly translated signage displayed throughout the province that Cavanaugh is trying to strike gold in has an effect on the way he feels and interacts with others. The show, directed by May Adrales, a New York City freelance director, will be performed at Syracuse Stage from Feb. 26 through March 16. Adrales has directed several productions, including “Whaddabloodclot!!!,” “The Wife,” and another Hwang production, “The Dance and the Railroad.” According to Syracuse Stage’s Feb. 19 press release, Hwang was inspired to create the play after he experienced a series of miscommunications whenever he went on business trips to China. Hwang believes that miscommunication can occur whether or not two people are communicating in the same language. On the nights of the Syracuse Stage produc-
tion, there will be numerous pre- and postshow events occurring for the duration of the show’s run. On Feb. 28 at the venue’s Sutton Pavilion, there will be an Opening Night Party featuring live music by local band Merit. Although half of the production is in Mandarin, audiences of all proficiencies of the language, even no knowledge at all, are encouraged to attend. There will be more than 750 subtitle slides to help patrons not only understand what the actors are saying, but also immerse themselves into the world of lost communication that is “Chinglish.” The Syracuse Stage press release stated that the show’s aim is to poke fun and raise awareness as to the way language is translated in areas, such as China, which causes words to lose their intended meaning. So for those who plan on attending this production, leave your English-Mandarin dictionaries at home. Patrons should come prepared for hours of laughter and the chance to get a glimpse of what “Chinglish” is all about. By the end of the show, the audience will be able to understand the importance of communication, and might also be able to pick up a word or two of Mandarin as well. firstname.lastname@example.org

Academy Awards Best Picture nods give insight to student life
he Oscars probably seem like an event worth skipping. It’s a whole lot of super rich people, dressed in expensive clothing that costs roughly as much as your student loan, being awkwardly teased by another rich person whose only job is to make fun of them for the night. And they’re drinking champagne and Cristal while you’re drinking Natty Ice every time there’s a nipple shown — there are always plenty of nipples at the Oscars. It can put life in harsh perspective, to say the least. But this is the year for Syracuse University students to embrace the Oscars with open arms — or, at least, appreciate the films nominated for best picture. There’s a little something for everybody.

CHELSEA DEBAISE LET’S GET WEIRD
“Gravity?” Especially for you, you aerospace engineering hotties. With George Clooney and Sandra Bullock flying around, there’s certainly enough eye candy to start making things a little hot and heavy. And what’s sexier than explaining to your date how the communications satellites in the movie are at a completely erroneous distance from the shuttle’s orbit to have these events ever take place? Nothing. There is literally nothing sexier than that. The “Wolf of Wall Street” is really the movie every Whitman student desperately needs to see. Let me speak on behalf of every other student on campus — we get it. You’re going to make more money than us, and it’s awesome that Bill Gates was your neighbor and used to babysit you. All the guys want to be you, and all the girls think your cardigans and boat shoes are super sexy. But just be careful never to be that guy — you’ll be just one fraudulent scheme away from taking too many Quaaludes and wrecking your gorgeous Ferrari on the way home from hanging out with Jonah Hill. I have a question for all art history majors, both at SU and elsewhere — what is your end game? It could totally be the case that you chose the world’s best-kept secret for most lucrative major. But if you have the same concerns I do, you should be rooting for “American Hustle” this year. This movie offers a great financial plan for those with some artistic historical understanding: what’s a little bit of forgery between friends? And sleeping with Christian Bale or Jennifer Lawrence should be the ultimate goal of any human. For any underclassmen who happen to be sleeping with a professor at this moment (get some) who is very much your senior, maybe it’s time that you watch a little film called “Nebraska.” Getting a B instead of an A in that class might be the right way to go on this one. Stick with people your own age for now, kiddos. Since “Captain Phillips” is a best picture nominee about pirates starring Tom Hanks, I don’t think I really need to cater this one to any particular group. Let me put it this way: if you hate excitement, and you hate really talented people, I guess you shouldn’t see this movie. Also, let me know who you are so that we never hang out and watch movies together. “12 Years a Slave” looks like a genuinely moving movie, and I will say this is atop my list of best picture films to see. Although I do think Brad Pitt tries a little too hard to be a serious actor. We all know you’re more than just a pretty face, Brad. Let it go. Let. It. Go. Try some of these on for size in preparation for this weekend, or maybe watch “Philomena,” “Dallas Buyers Club” and “Her” (maybe after the last one, you can play a round of “which of my friends is most likely to have sex with an imaginary woman.”) After all, the best time to binge-watch feature-length films is right before midterm week.
Chelsea DeBaise is a senior writing major. She has a shameless crush on Jennifer Lawrence and will be rooting for her success this weekend in all that she does. Chelsea’s column appears every Thursday in Pulp. She can be reached via email at email@example.com or on Twitter @CDeBaise124.
DanceWorks performance to incorporate Las Vegas flair By Anjali Alwis contributing writer
For Lucie Fernandez, a senior and four-year member of DanceWorks, this semester’s DanceWorks performance is especially poignant. A director and a choreographer of this year’s show, Fernandez said she was sad to be in her last show with DanceWorks, but extremely excited for the upcoming show. The annual spring show will run from Feb. 27 to March 1 in Goldstein Auditorium. Although the dancers will only be performing for three days, the entire DanceWorks crew has been training for the production since September. “There is a higher technique level than in the past. The creativity and diversity in the show is impressive,” Fernandez said. “It will definitely keep people on their feet.” Tickets for the show are available at the Schine Box Office, and cost $3 for students with a valid SUID, $5 for faculty and staff, and $7 for general admission. The theme for this year is Viva Las Vegas; Fernandez said the show will be both upbeat and performance-based. As a choreographer for the show, Fernandez was in charge of song choices and coordinating the dance. As a two-time member of the executive board, Fernandez had similar responsibilities last year. She said that the focus of the show this year for her was much more on the feeling of college coming to a close. She also said that last year’s was much more focused on emotions than her own uncertainty. “My influences are what’s going on in my life, what I’m feeling,” Fernandez said. “I tend to lead with my emotions.” Brianna Peach, a junior and two-year member of DanceWorks, is the producer and another choreographer for the show this year. Peach said she was extremely optimistic about how the show will appeal to audiences. “It is bigger, it is more powerful,” Peach said. “People are going to be surprised that DanceWorks can up their skill level.” Khari Walser, a freshman fashion design major and dancer in the show, said the level of how well the DanceWorks Board operates meets the skill level of dancing.

“It’s completely student run,” he said, “So it’s been great to see how organized they are, and how established they are and how they have their own way of doing things.” The show promises to incorporate a wide range of dance styles, Walser said. From contemporary to hip-hop and jazz to tap, Peach said DanceWorks strives to make each show better than the last. There are about 100 performers in this semester’s show, each of whom auditioned to be a part of the group in the beginning of the year and have been training ever since. The bond formed between performers is not merely a professional one, though, as Peach also said that dancers claim to have a home away from home through DanceWorks, and consider their fellow dancers like family.
There is a higher technique level than in the past. The creativity and diversity in the show is impressive. Lucie Fernandez danceworks choreographer and director
Walser echoed Peach’s sentiments, saying that DanceWorks has also taught him a lot about what it means to be a dancer. “I identify as a dancer because of my appreciation for dance and my passion for it. As a dancer, you’re always learning,” he said. “You can go to dance class and learn something new about your body, and new about yourself. Dance is a way of living and learning.” When looking for dancers, Lucie Fernandez said she does not simply look at a person’s ability to dance. She strives to find ‘performers’ — the people who naturally draw your attention through their movements. The pieces for the show range from cheerful to deeply passionate. Peach also said the dancers capture the range of the show’s pieces. Said Peach: “You can’t see it when they walk down the street, but when they are on stage, it shines.” firstname.lastname@example.org

virginia-mlax Maltz will get a second opportunity to transition into the midfield when No. 6 SU (2-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) travels to the senior’s home state to face No. 4 Virginia (5-0) in Charlottesville, Va., at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. “I think Derek’s done a very good job making a switch, it’s not easy,” Desko said. “The Maryland game didn’t really give him and those guys a chance, but Virginia should be a good chance.” In just his third game with Syracuse, including a scrimmage against Towson on Feb. 1, Staats paced the Orange with a team-high seven points in an overtime win over Albany. Desko has said he’s impressed with how fast Staats has adjusted to Division I lacrosse after transferring from Onondaga Community College and joining the team weeks into its preseason practice schedule. The coach was also happy with the way Staats fit into the attack, which was evident when Staats’ face appeared on the video board with the rest of the starters before Maryland. “It was tough watching from the bench,” Maltz said. “But Randy’s doing a really good job and playing with guys like Nicky Galasso and Billy Ward in the midfield is also cool.” Yet just about all of Maltz’s work with his new line has come in practice. He said that has gone well, and so did Desko. But in the team’s first-ever ACC game, the unit saw the field almost only in man-up situations. Maltz did net a goal off a pass from Staats early in the second quarter, but the majority of the Orange’s sparse offensive sets consisted of the starting attack plus the first-line midfield of Henry Schoonmaker, Hakeem Lecky and Scott Loy.
Desko hoped that Staats would fully acclimate himself with his new attack mates while Maltz quarterbacked the offense from the midfield, as the head coach said it was Maltz’s vision and knowledge of Syracuse’s system that prompted the move. Rice, a starting junior attack, orchestrates the SU offense as a feeder behind the cage, and said that having both Staats and Maltz on the field together, regardless of the positions, is beneficial to the team.

“They’re both very talented and for me it will be good if they can both get out there to have two big targets,” Rice said. “It’s never bad to have options, and we do.” The defensively savvy Terrapins — along with faceoff specialist Charlie Raffa — didn’t allow that to happen. A trip to Virginia doesn’t promise to be any less competitive. It’s another chance for Maltz get comfortable out of the starting lineup and at a new spot on the field. Said Maltz: “It will be good to get out there for another go. I’m just trying to help this team.” firstname.lastname@example.org | @dougherty_jesse

virginia-mbb North Carolina State on Feb. 15. “The only thing that matters is what you do at the end of the year. The real end of the year.” But for Syracuse, a strong finish heading into tournament season is crucial. The team has struggled with offensive consistency since its 91-89 win against Duke on Feb. 1, and is coming off a narrow 57-55 victory over the Terrapins on Saturday. And the Cavaliers pose a unique challenge. They’re a team that, unlike SU, has been able to bury its opponents. Only four of Virginia’s ACC victories have come by single digits, including a last-second game winner against the Panthers on a Malcolm Brogdon 3-pointer on Feb. 2. To add to that, UVA has only lost at home twice this season. “It’s going to be a tough place to play, a tough team to play against,” SU forward Jerami Grant said. “But at the same time, we’re going to be ready.” For the Orange to be ready, it’ll need Grant to have recovered from the sore back that kept him out of the second half against Maryland. It’ll need Rakeem Christmas to stay out of foul

boeheim He removed his jacket momentarily, sprinting toward referee Tony Greene and yelling repeated obscenities. Boeheim was ejected, Duke hit 3-of-4 free throws and the Blue Devils escaped with a 66-60 win. “That was the play,” Boeheim said after the game. “That was the game-decider right there.”
trouble for the first time since SU’s loss to N.C. State on Feb. 15. And it’ll need Trevor Cooney to break out of his horrendous shooting slump. The Orange shooting guard who was once making 50 percent of his 3-point shots is shooting just 27.5 percent from the field over his last six games. “I got some OK looks off of rebounds when guys found me. Shots I normally make,” Cooney said after a 1-for-5 performance in SU’s 66-60 loss to Duke on Saturday. “I got to knock them down, and I will next game.” But he didn’t. Cooney shot 3-of-13 and 2-of10 from long range against Maryland as the Orange nearly blew a late 12-point lead. With three games left — Virginia, Georgia Tech and Florida State — Cooney and SU have three more chances to regain their rhythm before tournament time. While the Orange isn’t built to blow teams out, it can certainly be playing more complete games. And with the ACC regular-season title likely on the line Saturday, there may be no better time to start. Said Boeheim: “This is the way we’ve played really all year. When I go to bed at night I’m really happy that we’ve won 26 games. I’m really happy.” firstname.lastname@example.org | @Stephen_Bailey1
He provided witty remarks and insight after both the Duke and Maryland games, but this week he’s offered a more introspective viewpoint. He explained where his anger stemmed from and what exactly irked him so much. Just minutes earlier, Jabari Parker converted an and-one on what Boeheim deemed a similar play, and one that was called the other way. Boeheim said the game was well officiated. He didn’t sense a home-court bias or any Duke favoritism. The foul disparity wasn’t as lopsid-

ed as it was two nights later against Maryland when the Terrapins shot 27 free throws and Syracuse shot just six. He simply thought consistency was lacking with Parker’s drive and Fair’s drive. “It was a close play,” Boeheim said. “I think you could argue either way on it, though I thought with the new rule they’ve been calling that a block and they did that against us.” He also added that players should never pick up technicals. That’s not their job. It’s the
coach’s job, Boeheim said. Boeheim also told The Dan Patrick Show that he never wanted to take his jacket off. “I made a mistake,” Boeheim said, “I really thought the game was over. I thought it was the wrong call and, you know, you get emotional and get kind of crazy. I could have taken the one ‘T’ and gone back but at that point it didn’t matter. “I was upset.” email@example.com | @TrevorHass
Secondary options step up with Sykes struggling to score By Sam Blum asst. copy editor
When it comes to scoring for Syracuse, there’s no question about who does it best. Brittney Sykes, who leads the team in points per game with 17.3, is the team’s go-to player when SU needs a basket. In the Orange’s Dec. 21 up next win over St. Joseph’s, it was Sykes that hit a running AT Wake Forest jumper off the glass as the @ Durham, N.C. buzzer sounded to grab the Sunday, 2 p.m. victory. With the Orange trailing by double digits in the second half to Virginia on Jan. 26, it was Sykes that scored 18 after the break in the 84-75 win. Up until the past five games, Sykes has been the SU’s most lethal offensive weapon. But in that span she’s shot just 43.9 percent compared to 53.9 percent in the team’s first 23 games. “It just happens to fall the way it does,” Sykes said. “All I have to do is just keep my confidence, which is still there. I know I can score — it’s no problem with scoring. “The next thing you know, I’ll look at the scoreboard and have 20 points.” Following Sykes’ career-high 31-point outburst against Virginia Tech on Feb. 6, she has averaged just 12.4 points per game. Against Florida State on Feb. 13, she put up a season-low six points, a performance preceded by a 5-of-17 shooting night against Notre Dame on Feb. 9. Sykes will look to regain her scoring touch when Syracuse (20-8, 9-6 Atlantic Coast) travels to Winston Salem, N.C., on Sunday for a 2 p.m. matchup with Wake Forest (14-13, 5-9). The game will be SU’s last game of the regular season before the ACC tournament. “It’s not something that worries me,” Sykes said. “But going into the postseason, yes, I do have to pick it up.” Sykes said she’s confident that she will get back in the groove.
But in her absence several others have stepped up. La’Shay Taft has made a resurgence late in her senior year, averaging 12 points per game in her last four games. Briana Day is coming off a career-high 14 points. Last week Rachel Coffey had back-to-back double-digit scoring outputs for the first time in conference play. “Every night, someone steps up big-time,” sophomore Brianna Butler said. “It shows the depth of our team and it shows how every night we can come in and expect something from everyone.” Sykes and Butler are Syracuse’s main threats. And while other players have shined as of late, Syracuse needs both sophomores to score in order to win. Butler is the team’s leading 3-point shooter and averages more than 14 points per game. SU head coach Quentin Hillsman has said many times after losses that he needs more production from both of them. And while he doesn’t shy away from acknowledging their importance, he’s happy to see everyone get in on the action. “I think it’s more important for us to have balance than for (Sykes) to have 30,” Hillsman said. “Right now we have good balance and continue to have four players in double figures.” The shooting slump hasn’t gotten to Sykes. After practice Wednesday morning, she was her jovial self. She was throwing alley-oops to teammate Maggie Morrison. She was practicing kick-out passes to Leary and would get jokingly mad when her 3-point shots didn’t fall. The smile never left her face. She may be playing her worst basketball at the season’s most crucial juncture, but Sykes is brimming with confidence heading into the postseason. “It happens where certain people have their greatest nights and some people don’t,” Sykes said. “But you just hope that I’m on, Bri’s on, Keya’s on, Q’s on, the whole team’s on. “It’s just staying focused and staying confident in my game.” firstname.lastname@example.org | @SamBlum3
2nd-half offense propels No. 2 Syracuse past No. 10 Eagles By Tyler Piccotti staff writer
For the first time this season, No. 2 Syracuse (5-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) trailed at the end of the first half. Then a successful comeback in the second frame produced a familiar result. Alyssa Murray and Katie Webster both netted hat tricks to help the Orange storm past No. 10 Boston College (3-1, 1-1) for a hard-fought 11-9 victory in Newton, Mass. With the win, Syracuse now sits in sole possession of first place in the ACC. “We rushed our shots early on, and some of our players lost a little confidence,” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “We came out in the second and responded.” The game remained scoreless until Murray received a pass from Kayla Treanor and fired it past BC goalkeeper Emily Mata with 19:41 remaining in the first half. Mata, though, made five saves during the
frame to help the Eagles jump in front. Mikaela Rix provided the offensive fireworks by firing three tallies past SU’s Kelsey Richardson to help build a 4-3 lead by the break. “It was extremely cold, and it played into BC’s style,” Gait said. “They slowed the ball and the game down.” But Syracuse was able to pick up the pace. Webster tied the game 2:22 into the second half, and minutes later a four-goal spurt put SU ahead for good. Treanor scored two of the goals, the last for her team-leading 18th goal. The Eagles stuck around and faced a manageable 10-8 deficit with only three minutes remaining. Then an empty-net goal by Gabby Jaquith dashed any hopes of overtime. The Orange will kick off a seven-game home stand Sunday at 1 p.m. against Towson, the team’s third consecutive ranked opponent. “Being on the road isn’t a bad thing at times,” Gait said, “but it will be good to be back home in the Dome.” email@example.com

Boeheim apologizes for tirade

SU head coach partially regrets outburst that led to ejection against Duke By Trevor Hass asst. sports editor
Jim Boeheim’s slew of “bullsh*t”s and ensuing ejection — the first of his career in the regular season — swept around the nation Saturday night. Memes were created. The video went viral. Boeheim’s face — and jacket — were the main attractions on SportsCenter that evening. JIM BOEHEIM Some people thought the head coach went too far, crossing the line many coaches toe. For others, the tirade cemented Boeheim’s status as a legend. They thought the outburst epitomized the unwavering loyalty he’s shown toward the program for 38 years. Everyone had an opinion. And on Wednesday, Boeheim offered an in-depth opinion of his own. “There’s no question I went too far,” he said Wednesday on ESPN Radio’s The Herd with host Colin Cowherd. He told The Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday it was one of those moments that you “regret a little bit.” However, Boeheim also explained his rationale for acting the way he did. He’s not sure he entirely regrets it. “In my mind, the game was over,” Boeheim told ESPN Radio. “That was really the call that got me. Would you rather not do that? Probably. But when you’re in the middle of that moment, when you’re involved in a game like that and you feel the game is gone because of this play, you lose control of your emotions.” Syracuse was down 60-58 with 10.4 seconds left when the chaos unfolded. C.J. Fair drove baseline looking to tie the game. Rodney Hood scurried over to impede Fair from dunking the ball and to take a charge. A new NCAA rule states that a player must have his feet set before the offensive player enters the air for it to be a charge. Boeheim, well aware of this rule, was stunned when the call didn’t go his way. see boeheim page 18

SU’s Maltz returns to home state, adjusts to 2nd-line midfield spot By Jesse Dougherty asst. sports editor
erek Maltz has long known where to jog out to prior to the opening whistle. The senior captain, who has become a staple of one of the country’s best offenses in his three-plus years at Syracuse, began the season on the starting attack alongside Dylan Donahue and Kevin Rice. The spot he expected to be in while fielding questions about SU’s potent attack in the weeks leading up to the team’s opener against Siena. And the spot he was in when he helped the team to wins over the Saints and then-No. 11 Albany to kick-start the season. But in the Orange’s 16-8 loss to Maryland on Saturday, Maltz didn’t
start and played sparingly with the second midfield line. “I’m not 100 percent sure what my role is as of now,” Maltz said. “But I’m thinking I’ll be playing a little more midfield than attack. We’ll see.” SU head coach John Desko shuffled junior transfer Randy Staats into the starting attack against the Terps, and made Maltz a second-line midfielder next to Nicky Galasso and Billy Ward. But against Maryland, SU struggled at the faceoff X and Maltz — as well as Galasso and Ward — spent the majority of the game on the sideline because the Orange spent a majority of the game on defense. The unveiling of Desko’s new offensive approach was muffled by an unusually lopsided result, and see virginia-mlax page 15
Syracuse faces Virginia in battle of conference’s top 2 teams By Stephen Bailey sports editor
yracuse and Duke have garnered the biggest television ratings. North Carolina has grabbed the nation’s attention by turning its early-season nosedive into a flying success. Pittsburgh has made its presence in the Atlantic Coast Conference known immediately. Virginia, however, has quietly put together arguably the best regular-season slate in the conference. The Cavaliers have only lost once since the new year and stand in the Orange’s way of a regular-season title in its first ACC season. “I think they’re a very good defensive team,” SU forward C.J. Fair said. “They live off their defense.” No. 4 Syracuse (26-2, 13-2 ACC)
travels to Charlottesville, Va., to face No. 12 Virginia (24-5, 15-1) at 4 p.m. Saturday in a game that will determine the frontrunner for the ACC regular-season crown. With the Blue Devils and Tar Heels both having four conference losses, the Orange can win its last three games to take the No. 1 seed in the ACC tournament. If the Cavaliers win, a trip to Maryland’s Comcast Center is all that separates UVA from the top draw. While the game is arguably the Orange’s most important thus far this season, SU head coach Jim Boeheim has said the regular season, and even conference tournament aren’t the end goal. “You don’t get any trophies that matter in the regular season,” he said after Syracuse’s 56-55 win over see virginia-mbb page 18
