Syracuse University and SUNY-ESF announced a new agreement Tuesday that will give students at the schools continued access to classes on both campuses. The agreement gives SU students unlimited access to State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry classes, and introduces a new process for ESF students who want to take courses at SU, according to a Tuesday SU News release. ESF and SU students have always been allowed to take classes at both schools, but the new formalized

The following are the steps the School of Architecture has taken to find a new dean before interim Dean Randall Korman steps down July 1.
Some Syracuse University officials have said they do not anticipate changes to events hosted in the Schine Student Center as a result of the fights in and outside the building early Sunday morning. Department of Public Safety officers shut down a dance party in Goldstein Auditorium after a fight broke out at about 1:45 a.m. About 850 people attended the event, said DPS Associate Chief John Sardino. As the party was coming to its scheduled end at about 2 a.m., several people began to fight in the center

Amid dean search, School of Architecture transitions to new leadership, embraces digital age By Marwa Eltagouri
tudents poured into Slocum Auditorium on Tuesday afternoon, struggling to find seats. Faculty stood in the aisles and students knelt on the steps – all itching to see Ray Gastil, a candidate for the deanship of the School of Architecture, begin his presentation. Gastil is one of five candidates being brought to campus throughout the next few weeks for two-day visits packed with interviews and meetings with faculty, staff and students. They lunch and dine with search committee members, converse
with other deans of the university and meet with the chancellor and vice provost. They also give a public talk to the School of Architecture community on architecture and its role at Syracuse University. Sitting in the front row of the audience was Randall Korman, the current interim dean. Assuming the dean search, now in its final stages, is successful, he will step down July 1. “The process is comprehensive and exhaustive and necessarily so,” Korman said. “It helps assure that the best person is selected for this important position.”
Paving an administration Vice Chancellor and Provost Eric Spina began conversations with faculty last May on the state of the architecture school and on the qualifications the school was looking for in its new dean. The architecture school community wasn’t looking for someone who was necessarily the world’s best architect or engineer, but someone who understood architecture’s growth. They needed someone who could interact with SU’s several colleges, and who would raise money and advocate for the school’s interest, he said.
SEE ARCHITECTURE PAGE 6
The university hired outside consultants Mirah Horowitz and Ilene Nagle of Russell Reynolds Associates, who compiled a short list of candidates in December.
Candidates will be visiting campus through February, and then the search committee will make recommendations to vice chancellor and provost Eric Spina.
Spina said he hopes to make an announcement on the hiring of the new SOA dean in March.

SU, SPD see increase in fake tickets By Alfred Ng
alyssa pooler | staff photographer SU’s dining halls host a Black-History-Month-themed night Tuesday. These themed nights take place once or twice a month, and are meant to improve the dining hall eating experience by adding variety. On themed nights, students are often exposed to cuisines from other cultures.
Dining halls use themed nights to enrich menu By Tatiana Aviles Contributing Writer
Students at Shaw Dining Center found themselves surrounded by red, green and black balloons. A dessert table at the front of the cafeteria was piled high with cornbread, apple pie and ice cream, and the menu included fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, and barbeque ribs. On Tuesday night, various dining halls on campus celebrated Black History Month with a special themed
night featuring foods from AfricanAmerican culture. These themed nights, taking place once or twice a month, are special occasions meant to improve the dining hall eating experience by adding variety. On themed nights, students are exposed to cuisines from other cultures, said Lynne Mowers, secretary to the director of Syracuse University Food Services. “Our goal is to offer some different foods, to expose customers to
new tastes and enhance our menu,” Mowers said. The dinners are often centered on events affecting the campus community or national events, such as National Orange Day or Black History Month, Mowers said. Stephen Benn, a freshman in the David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics, said he felt the night supported the AfricanAmerican community and honored the struggles they faced during the
Civil War. “It reminds me of home,” Benn said, smiling as he ate the familiar foods. But others, such as freshman graphic design major Sergio Rodriguez, don’t think the themed nights highlighting specific cultures are beneficial. He said he thinks the food selected to represent one culture on one day is stereotypical. “They should just add more variety see dining halls page 6
Carrier Dome officials are teaming up with the Syracuse Police Department to take on ticket scammers and fight counterfeiting. The Dome staff has encountered an increasing amount of counterfeit tickets in recent years, said Jeremiah Maher, associate athletics director for ticket operations. With a rising number of tickets sold online with print-at-home methods, forging tickets for Orange games at the Dome becomes a much easier task for scammers, he said. Recently, SPD arrested a scam artist who admitted to selling forged tickets to at least six victims in places near campus like Bruegger’s Bagels and Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches, The Post-Standard reported Jan. 29. Both city and state police have charged the suspect with four counts of a forged instrument, which is a felony. “What this guy did was he took tickets from a game from last year and altered them,” said SPD Sgt. Tom Connellan. “He made a fake bar code for these fake tickets and sold them through Craigslist.” The forged tickets can sell for up to $500, while the original tickets they were copied from can be purchased for $136, Connellan said. These forgeries are almost identical to the real tickets, with the only difference being an invalid barcode. Given the ease with which fake tickets can be made, administrative staff at the Dome have taken an increased security measure to prevent this from happening in the future, Maher said. He added that most forged tickets are encountered during bigger games. Since there’s a low supply and high demand for good seats, Maher said, see tickets page 6
Law student argues for weekend morning bus to Westcott neighborhood By Annie Palmer Staff Writer
Aldie Levine is used to relying on public transportation. Not owning a car and living off campus in Syracuse’s Westcott neighborhood means the Westcott shuttle service is the third-year Syracuse University College of Law student’s only option for getting to and from Main Campus. When Centro terminated the 530
bus route to Westcott neighborhood in spring 2011, Levine found it hard to get to campus to use the Barclay Law Library. The route’s termination rendered the Westcott neighborhood without a morning weekend bus to and from the university, she said. In fall 2012, she created a petition directed at SU Parking and Transit Services to bring back the morning shuttle on the weekends. Parking services received the petition for review
earlier this week, Levine said. “Where I lived before, cars were a burden, not a freedom,” Levine said. “My parents can’t afford to buy me a car, and neither can I, so I’m always dependent upon public transportation.” Levine started looking for student support for her petition two weeks ago, and has now garnered 120 signatures. Last week, Levine presented her completed petition to SU’s Student Bar Association in hopes of partnering
with them to contact parking services, she said. She also hopes to join with the Graduate Student Organization to further strengthen her petition. After learning about Levine’s concerns, SBA President Kevin Sunderland said he was interested but skeptical about how necessary the new shuttle service would be for the student body. Sunderland then met with Tomas Gonzalez, College of Law’s senior
assistant dean for student life, to get his input on the petition, he said. Both Sunderland and Gonzalez agreed that more information is necessary before any action could be taken. “We’re really interested in finding out how many students are actually in demand of the service,” Sunderland said. “It’s great if you have a lot of students who support it, but if it only affects 10 people, then it may not see buses page 9

Unilever promotes contradicting messages through Dove, Axe brands
ove – a brand that has declared itself a representation of “real” women everywhere. Dove’s Campaign for Real Beauty revolutionized the beauty industry by openly speaking about how society’s perception of the female ideal is distorted. The brand Axe derives its success by convincing teenage boys that its line of products will make them irresistible to the opposite sex. The “Axe Effect” causes all women to become sex-crazed maniacs that aggressively pursue any male wearing the product. To the average consumer, Dove and Axe have nothing in common. They are two completely different brands conveying different messages. But Dove and Axe actually do have a substantial commonality – they share the same parent company, Unilever. Unilever owning both brands is certainly a contradiction. But while some call it hypocritical, and even morally wrong, those in the industry call it strategy. When Dove’s real beauty campaign started
refuse to be labeled in 2004, it had a large effect on female consumers everywhere. Dove became more than a brand, it became a symbol for women to be comfortable with their bodies. For once, women were being told they were beautiful no matter what they looked like, instead of being compared to thin models in the media. This was a shockingly unconventional approach to advertising in the beauty industry when the campaign debuted. The success from the campaign led to the establishment of the Dove Self-Esteem Fund, an international effort to help improve female self-image issues.
But the genuine message Dove projects loses its meaning when its parent corporation also owns Axe. It becomes less about Dove caring for its customers and more about how Dove is using the Campaign for Real Beauty to increase its sales and public image. According to Unilever’s website, its mission is to help people across the globe feel good and look good. But one of Unilever’s international brands, Fair and Lovely, takes the idea of “looking good” too far. Launched in India in 1978, Fair and Lovely is a beauty line that promises lighter-looking skin with regular usage. The product is popularly used in India, where fair skin is considered beautiful and a sign of affluence, and darker skin alludes to having little or no wealth. Unilever’s ownership of brands such as Fair and Lovely and Axe make it hard to determine if what Dove is doing can be considered progress. Its affiliation with the parent company directly contradicts everything it is working to improve about the beauty industry.
But even with the question of principle at hand, Unilever’s inconsistency hasn’t stopped consumers from indulging in its brands. Both Dove and Axe have increased in revenue and popularity as a result of their ad campaigns. Even if people recognize the company’s inconsistencies, good morals concerning beauty are not a social issue warranted by our society to protest. Some argue Unilever is not at fault, as one company cannot be to blame for society’s perception of beauty. But that explanation fails to grasp the bigger picture. If Dove’s campaign was sincere in its message and stood alone from Unilever, its claims to support real beauty would be credible. Until Dove steps out of Unilever’s shadow, its campaign cannot be considered progressive for feminine beauty. Paris Bethel is a sophomore advertising major. Her column appears weekly.

Outside review confirms SU libraries are underfunded, out of date In October 2012, an external review committee evaluated the Syracuse University Library system. Review committee members included four directors of academic research libraries and a leader in academic technologies and research. The completed report (which can be viewed in its entirety at http://library.syr.edu/about/ PDF/SUL-ExternalReviewReport-2012.pdf),
LETTER TO THE EDITOR contains 47 recommendations that touch on nearly every aspect of the library’s programs and support. The recommenders congratulated the library for its new South Campus Library Facility, SUrface and grants for the nationally
recognized Belfer Audio Archive. However, they called on the university’s upper administration to prioritize improvement in two areas: 1) The collections budget: The report recommends that the chancellor, provost and other senior administrators “determine a planned and stepped strategy to correct the baseline collection budget deficiency”. The reviewers encountered many at SU who “express considerable concern over the ability of the collections to support the academic and research enterprises of the university. They also are very concerned about the university administration’s perceived failure to comprehend and address the deficiencies.” The baseline budget must be improved, and taking from the current collections’ budget to support general operation’s costs “must cease.” The SU administration must seriously address the inadequacies of the collections budget and reverse long-term underfunding. 2) The physical facilities: The reviewers noted that while Bird Library is the main library on campus, it does not meet the needs of the campus community, lacking many capabilities standard for modern libraries. “It is an unattractive structure … the build-
ing does not receive adequate services from maintenance crews … wired network services are inadequate to meet user needs and there is a paucity of electrical outlets.” Carnegie represents missed opportunities, an underutilization of space, “a disjointed building and renovation plan.” Only leadership from top university administrators, in collaboration with faculty, staff and students, will right the long neglect of the Syracuse University Library. According to this team of national leaders: “Syracuse library will not be an effective organization … unless [the neglect is] addressed. This will require a revitalized collaboration and consultation among the library, the faculty and the senior administration.” As a community we should be extremely concerned. It is unacceptable to maintain the status quo when we consider the library’s dire conditions. We strongly urge the administration to follow a key recommendation of the review: take seriously the SU Library as an integral part of the academic enterprise at the university, crucial to student success and faculty productivity.

Huckabee unpreferable speaker; not most intellectual Republican voice We write in response to Gov. Mike Huckabee’s upcoming speech at Syracuse University. Leading the anti-LGBT “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day,” anti-LGBT activism is one of Huckabee’s signature issues. Although our campus differs on views toward LGBT persons, we must always affirm the worth of individuals. As a TV commentator, Huckabee assaults civil rights for LGBT persons and employs derogatory language that reinforces a culture of homophobic violence and hatred. Huckabee also works against interfaith dialogue and cooperation. Huckabee’s attacks against Christian churches sharing religious spaces with other faiths and insulting rhetoric,
LETTER TO THE EDITOR such as comparing Islam to pornography, not only upends valuable learning, but also fuels religious-based violence and intolerance. College Republicans has the right to invite the speaker of their choice, but the selection of Huckabee instead of other speakers is a rejection of more moderate intellectual Republican voices. Accordingly, their invitation is an endorsement of Huckabee’s dangerous politics. Is this really the best College Republicans can do?

Recycling more complex than simply putting plastics in bin
ou’ve probably heard, “Reduce, reuse, recycle,” a staple in teaching environmental consciousness, especially at an early age. But beyond those elementary school days, did anyone ever recite to you, “Recycle plastics Nos. 1, 2 and 5 in Onondaga County”? Probably not. While “reduce, reuse, recycle” is short, sweet and to the point, it leaves out many important details for those who choose recycling as the most important way to incorporate green living into their everyday lives. When recycling cannot be relied on alone, it’s time to remember we need a combination of the three Rs to get us to a happier, healthier place. You can recycle paper, glass, plastic and metals. You can even recycle electronics or other combinations of things. But each county, township and city has its own rules and regulations on what exact items you can recycle and how you can recycle them. For instance, Onondaga County provides curbside blue bin pick-up for some paper, plastic, glass and metal. Other electronics, fluorescent bulbs, batteries, plastic bags and more need to be recycled at local retailers or places of purchase – they do not go in the blue bin or in the trash. Not all paper, plastic, glass and metals can be recycled. Most papers can be recycled in our county, such as newspaper, magazines, softcover books, mail, envelopes and cardboard. Glass jars, glass bottles and metal cans can be recycled, as well as No. 1 and No. 2 plastic bottles, and No. 5 plastic tubs. All should be emptied and rinsed without lids. Anything else, including those lids, goes in the trash. That means plastics that have numbers 3, 4, 6 or 7 on the bottom. It also means any broken glass, drinking glasses or window glass. No paper

21st-century tree hugger towels, tissues, plates or cups. Egg cartons, whether paper or Styrofoam, cannot be recycled. Recycling is a bit more complex than elementary school Earth Day celebrations teach. At the same time, it’s not rocket science. You put the recyclables in the bin and put it out on your curb the same day as trash pick-up. Onondaga County makes it easy for us. In addition to this ease of access, Onondaga County has recycling available that other portions of our country don’t have, such as No. 5 plastic container recycling. For instance, my hometown on Long Island only recycles Nos. 1 and 2 plastics, meaning that I have to reuse them, reduce them or throw them in a landfill. On the other hand, some places are more advanced in their recycling systems. Cayuga, Madison and Oswego counties already collect plastics Nos. 1-7, four more types of plastic than Onondaga County. And that’s a lot of plastic. But when recycling leaves out different types of plastics and materials, it’s time for the other two Rs to come in – reducing and reusing. There are options when purchasing products. Try not to buy items wrapped in packaging that you know you’ll have to throw out. You can even reuse plastic containers instead of buying Tupperware. Recycling is not the pinnacle R to remember. It’s only part of the process.

Students must be respectful of peers in Bird The noise level on E.S. Bird Library’s main floor, also known as “Club Bird,” should be reduced, as high volumes disrupt academic environments. To control noise level, the library staff must be diligent in telling students to be quieter on the main floor and in sending groups of more than six to closed study rooms. If students do not comply, they should be asked to leave the library. Although the noise should be reduced, making the main and bottom floors completely silent is not encouraged. These lower floors, which include large tables and numerous outlets, create ideal spaces for smaller groups to discuss assignments. But these students should

If students feel a noisy workspace is hurtful to their academics, they should move to the upper floors of the library that are deemed silent spaces to study. On these floors, the library staff must strictly enforce silence from the occupants.

exceed the noise from the café. A café is a beneficial, appropriate addition to a library on a college campus because of students’ nature to spend long periods of time at the location, especially during final exams. The café provides an easily accessible and needed food source for working students. Diverse work environments are necessary in a college library. Regardless of what floor students choose to study on, all must respect their peers and keep their noise volume at an appropriate level. If students feel a louder work environment is preferable, the Syracuse University campus offers other cafes and study spaces where noise is acceptable.

A search committee was developed early in the summer of 2012, and consisted of Ann Clarke, dean of the College of Visual and Performing Arts, and architecture professor Ted Brown as chair and vice chair, respectively. Also sitting on the committee are Richard Gluckman of Gluckman Mayner Architects, Hilary Sample of MOS Architects and Laura Steinberg, dean of the L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science. Additional members include School of Architecture faculty and students, Spina said. The search began with the hiring of outside consultants Mirah Horowitz and Ilene Nagle of Russell Reynolds Associates, who looked not just within the United States but across the world for qualified candidates. They compiled a short list of candidates in December, Spina said, who were then interviewed for the opportunity to come to campus. Spina said Horowitz and Nagle were hired because it’s impractical for him to take time off from his work and go on the road looking for candidates. The practice of hiring outside consultants is standard, and they spend a lot of time reporting back to the committee. Horowitz and Nagle declined comment. Candidates will be visiting campus through February, and then the search committee will make recommendations to Spina, who will narrow his decision from there. “Sometimes it stays quiet for three weeks, sometimes it’s quick,” he said. “I’d hope to say by March we’re at a place where we can make some sort of announcement.”

agreement allows the schools to better plan for the number of students taking their classes, said Erin Kane, SU associate vice president for public relations. “It was time to revisit (the policy), so both schools sat down and said, ‘What makes sense?’” Kane said. Starting in the next academic year, first-year ESF students will receive 16 SU credit hours to be used during their time at ESF. These will be covered by their ESF tuition and fees, according to the release. Current ESF students will receive a minimum of four SU credit hours and will also have a chance to petition for additional hours needed to complete their degree, according to the release. The exact number of SU credits that ESF transfer students and upperclassmen receive will be calculated based on year and previous SU credits used, Kane said. For example, officials will look at how a particular ESF student has used SU credits in the past, as well as what classes he or she may need

Part of the money students pay for their meal plan is allocated for these events, said Mowers, of Food Services. A menu committee is created to select the foods for the event, as well as arrange a date for the event to take place. To create an appropriate menu that relates to the theme, the committee seeks the help of various groups on campus.

Paving the future The School of Architecture is amid a larger transition, too — a transition toward a new method of teaching architecture. Dean Korman has taken steps to ensure that when he steps down, the school is ready to step into the digital age. Historically, it has been difficult for a client to understand a building plan in special terms, but currently, 3D models can be used to create photo-realistic animation sequences, as if the architect was taking the client’s hand and walking them through the building, Korman said. This new technology, which the school hopes to install, will let students clearly depict what
“We need to rethink the way in which we teach architecture over the next 20 or 30 years. ” Randall Korman

they’re imagining, and easily convey that depiction to their instructor. “I think the trajectory of technology will continue so that it won’t be long before we professors put on helmets and walk through the spaces students created for us, walk through a virtual environment,” Korman said. “That’s coming.” Currently, Korman is working on developing the Einhorn, a 21st century experimental studio conceptualized to create a more technological work environment. The school’s method of teaching architecture hasn’t changed much in the past 100 years, Korman said, so the studio
to complete their degree, Kane said. ESF graduate students will be allocated 15 SU credit hours, according to the release. The formula for credit allocations was calculated based on the average number of SU credit hours ESF students have taken in recent years. ESF students often take SU classes to complete elective courses or general education requirements in the liberal arts, according to the release. Students who have used their SU credit allocation will have the option to pay tuition in order to take additional SU classes, according to the release. More than 1,300 students from ESF and SU take classes at the opposite university. This spring, 440 ESF students are taking SU classes and 210 SU students are enrolled in ESF classes, according to the release. Although the new procedures primarily affect ESF students, Kane said the agreement also benefits SU students. Said Kane: “ESF is top-rated in the things that they do, so this is also a great opportunity for SU students.” firstname.lastname@example.org @JessicaIannetta
For example, Asian Students in America helped plan last year’s Chinese New Year night and the Phi Iota Alpha fraternity typically brings ideas for the Latino Month dinner, Mowers said. “We check campus event schedules and other happenings before setting theme dinner dates. We also try to make sure things are scheduled when we have the most staffing available,” Mowers said. The themed nights go beyond the food — the dining halls are decorated to educate students on the cultures that inspired the event. “It’s good to know more about different cultures, and there’s no better way than to put it in the cafeteria because everyone comes,” said
is an initiative for students to transition from mechanical hand-drawing to drafting projects exclusively on computers and laptops. The studio will be created by converting a graduate studio into the new space, which will be test-driven for a year. From that, the initiative could expand by eventually converting all of Slocum’s studios, Korman said. “We need to rethink the way in which we teach architecture over the next 20 or 30 years,” he said. “The profession has gone through a dramatic change and I think architecture schools have to adapt.” The Einhorn studio should be completed by September, in time for the first semester of the new dean’s administration. A second initiative Korman has been working on involves bringing two students from the Kigali Institute of Science and Technology in Rwanda to SU for a semester or two. The idea was inspired after he spoke to architecture assistant professor Yutaka Sho, who teaches in Rwanda on a regular basis during the summer. While Sho said in an email that finances are still being resolved, Korman hopes to bring two students as early as next September, also in time for the new administration.
The road ahead Slocum Hall’s large windows allow sunlight to seep through Korman’s second-floor office, bringing shelves of wooden architectural prototypes and textbooks to light. A large, polished desk and stacks of papers give the room an administrative touch. “I’ll continue teaching,” he said definitively, with a smile. He paused, staring at the office. “I’m honestly looking forward to getting back to the studio and classroom.”
Though only named interim dean in July, he has already made strides in advancing the architecture program. His main responsibility has been paving the way for the transition to the next administration by attending to budgets and finalizing a curriculum change in which a third-year studio class will be moved up to a fourth-year one. Spina calls Korman a “pro.” Korman immediately picked up where former Dean Mark Robbins left off, worked with faculty and the curriculum to ensure courses were taught by the best professionals possible, and was engaged in the development and fundraising of the architecture school, he said. “He’s earned the confidence of the chancellor and faculty,” Spina said. Assuming the search is successful, Korman will take a one-year sabbatical that he has postponed for a few years now, before returning to teaching. He hopes to finish the book he’s currently working on during this time, and anticipates possible invitations to lecture and teach abroad. The working title of his book is “Art of the Facade,” which explores the importance of the front of a building — the aspect people remember most. Korman previously taught a class on the iconic nature of the facade, and hopes to incorporate lectures into the chapters, along with his 20 years of research. He is not involved in the dean search and purposely chose not to be on the committee so as to remain independent of the process. While Spina often consults with him, Korman’s influence on the outcome is limited, but he’s not worried. “They’re all top notch,” he said. “Any one of them could be a great dean.” email@example.com

people are willing to buy from other places at a higher price. But buying tickets from a secondary source could be much riskier. To reduce the amount of counterfeit tickets being sold, Dome officials use security measures such as working closely with SPD and patrolling the campus for potential scalpers during games, he said. “We were part of the process that led to the recent arrest. Once we saw the counterfeit ticket, we reported it to the police immediately,” Maher said. “We’re working with them now to monitor people reselling tickets within 1,500 feet of the Dome.” In addition to working with the police, the Dome uses a sophisticated bar code system from Ticketmaster for tickets printed at home. The barcodes automatically change as soon as the original owner forwards the ticket via email, preventing mass copies from being spread digitally, Maher said. Suspicious tickets can be checked for validity at the Dome Box Office. SPD advises against purchasing tickets

Big game Syracuse University Athletics anticipates selling 34,600 tickets for the Feb. 23 game against Georgetown in the Carrier Dome, said Jeremiah Maher, associate athletics director for ticket operations. The game marks the last time the two rivals will meet in Syracuse as members of the Big East conference in the regular season. Because of some recently added seating, there is potential for the game to break the venue’s attendance record of 34,616, which was set during a game against Villanova in 2010. If the game breaks this record, it will be both the largest crowd at a Syracuse home game and the largest on-campus crowd for a basketball game nationally.

Due for a
City of Syracuse business owners, workers react to Gov. Cuomo’s proposal for a higher minimum wage
* These states have a range
with the upper wage included
By Alexandra Hitzler STAFF WRITER
ew York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposal to raise minimum wage by $1.50 – from $7.25 an hour to $8.75 an hour – has sparked reactions from workers in the city of Syracuse. During the past five years, the minimum wage in New York state has only increased by 10 cents, according to the New York State Assembly website. “Increasing the minimum wage would benefit over 1 million working New Yorkers,” said Sheldon Silver, New York State Assembly speaker, in a statement on the Assembly’s website. “We should be leading the way on this front and living up to our reputation as a state that takes care of our own.” There are 18 states that have minimum wages higher than New York’s wages, according to Silver’s statement. “We’re falling behind,” Silver said in the statement. “The neighboring states of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Vermont — as well as Washington, D.C., and 15 other states across the country — have a higher minimum wage than New York.” Art Delaney, owner of Delaney Moving and Storage in Syracuse, said he supports a raise in minimum wage. He added that he thinks increased wages are long overdue. Delaney said the increase would not directly affect his business because his employees are already paid more than minimum wage, but he said he knows the increase might influence his employees to ask for raised wages as well. “I think raised wages is a good thing, as long as everyone is helping contribute by paying taxes and boosting the economy,” Delaney said. Increased minimum wage would help boost the economy because consumer spending comprises 70 percent of the gross domestic product, according to the Assembly’s website. Increased wages would recirculate money through the economy because working families spend higher wages at local businesses. Every $1 in wage increase for minimum-wage workers results in $3,500 in new consumer spending by that household during the next year, according to the website. Christie Rainaldi, an employee at Bleu Monkey Cafe on Marshall Street, said she also supports the pay increase. “I think it’s the right thing to do,” she said. Rainaldi said the pay raise would not significantly affect her personal wages because she currently makes $8 an hour as a hostess at the restaurant, but she thinks a raise is overdue for New York state. However, some Syracuse business owners think the pay raise could hurt their businesses. Randy Beach, owner of Ale ‘n’ Angus Pub in downtown Syracuse, said it would be more beneficial for businesses if minimum wage increases occurred gradually through time. “It would make more sense to raise the minimum wage in small increments rather than jump to a $1.50 increase and leave businesses to scramble to find a means to pay out more,” Beach said. Jini Cerio, owner of Markowitz Flowers in downtown Syracuse, agrees that a $1.50 increase is a lot to take on at one time. “It’s putting a lot on individual businesses,” Cerio said. “It might not seem like a lot of money, but it adds up for businesses that have dozens of employees.” email@example.com

of the auditorium. More people joined in so that 40 or 50 people were involved at the height of the fight, Sardino said. Fighting continued in the area between Schine and E.S. Bird Library after DPS cleared the auditorium, he said. Syracuse police arrested eight SU students outside of Schine and one at the John C. Dillon Public Safety Building, though some said the students who were arrested weren’t involved in the fighting. Safety measures, the amount of funding allocated to the organizers of the event and ability to put events on at Schine are all expected to remain the same. Kevin Quinn, senior vice president for public affairs, said in a statement that student parties like this event are regularly held on campus without major incidents. He said SU “will take a look at what occurred and what things might be able to be improved.” “Our Division of Student Affairs will continue to support a safe and structured social environment for our students,” he said in the statement. Bridget Yule, director of student centers and programming services, said in an email she was not authorized to speak about the incident and couldn’t speak on behalf of the university. Six DPS officers were assigned to monitor the party, which is typical for an event of its size in Goldstein, Sardino said. He said DPS has a welldeveloped plan for situations like this, and that he did not believe placing more officers at the venue would have prevented the incident. Rather than increasing the number of officers present at events, Sardino said he thought

be as much of an issue.” SU Parking and Transit Services has decided to look into the issue, Sunderland said. Sunderland recently worked with the department to decrease parking congestion outside of the Carrier Dome, so a positive relationship between parking services and the SBA already exists, and should aid in the success of Levine’s petition, he said. SBA and the Graduate Student Organization initially proposed the issue in early fall 2011, Levine said. Parking services responded and said that due to a lack of funding, they could not support the creation of a new morning shuttle, she said. “I created the petition because despite the
february 6, 2013 the incident called for an increase in coordination and communication among organizations involved in putting on the event, such as DPS, student groups and student programming organizations. “What we don’t want to do is create a burden or make an event that is so restrictive that students can’t have a good time,” he said. “To make something harder or cost more to have because of a few people is not really in the best interests of all of our students.” Sardino emphasized that most student events take place without incident, and that many students were cooperative and even active in breaking up the fights on Sunday. “I hope it doesn’t have an impact on students that weren’t involved in the fighting,” he said. “They would be the people hurt by canceling programming.” The incident will not affect future Student Association funding for dance parties, said Comptroller Stephen DeSalvo. He said he does not plan to hold The National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations, the primary sponsor of the event, accountable for what he viewed as a one-time incident. “If this were a recurring thing, then we might have to re-evaluate the funding of such events but at this time, I do not think that is necessary,” he added in an email. DeSalvo said NALFO received $2,112 in funding to cover the venue, DJ, ticket fee and kiosk for advertising purposes. Sardino said he personally hopes the incident would not limit future student events. Said Sardino: “I think that the more programming that we have for students, the better off the students are and the community is.” firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
SBA and GSO’s efforts in 2011, the response didn’t really address the need,” Levine said. “There’s still a huge wait for the bus to and from campus every weekend.” Levine said she feels a responsibility to let the administration know where students’ needs lie. With many students living in the Westcott neighborhood, student response has been strong, she said. Levine continues to campaign her cause by bringing attention to the issue on local public transportation. “The support that I’m getting from students will hopefully illustrate the fact that an extra service could be really useful,” Levine said. “I really think it has the potential to make everyone’s lives better.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Newhouse adjunct strays away from consumerism, builds life with family around natural elements Text by Austin Pollack STAFF WRITER
Photos by Chase Gaewski
hen Steve Carlic distributed the syllabus to his NEW 205: “News Writing” class, his students looked at one another with eyebrows raised in fascination.
(FROM TOP) STEVE CARLIC, an adjunct professor at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, holds Millie, an alpine and dwarf goat mix, in his arms inside his chicken coup in Marcellus, N.Y. Carlic disassembles one of his beehives in order to feed his bees. The bees stay in the hive for the winter from October to late April.
Besides stating that Carlic works in the Opinion section at The Post-Standard and as an adjunct professor at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, the syllabus said something much more intriguing. When Carlic isn’t at work, he’s collecting honey from his honeybees, stirring up homemade maple syrup, helping his wife run her soap company and being a father of three children. That is only half of what the Newhouse professor does at home. In addition to the bees, syrup, soap and fatherhood, Carlic owns chickens. He also makes his own wine and beer in his basement. This is all part of his plan to be a more sustainable individual. “I can’t change the world, but I can change what I can do,” Carlic said. Carlic has been interested in the local economy, food and connections after reading books about local farming and sustainability. His 19-year-old daughter Grace introduced him to author Michael Pollan, who writes about ways to be sustainable with food choices. This triggered Carlic to become involved in local sustainability. “I’m exploring to see how it works out,” Carlic said. One of Carlic’s experiments is taking honey from his honeybees and selling it. When he sells the honey from the bees, he uses the money to buy new hives. Similarly, when the chickens lay eggs, he sells the eggs to pay for the chicken feed. And with bees comes wax. His work is a cycle. The wax goes toward the soap business of Carlic’s wife, Mary. The two have worked with homemade soap, hand cream and lotions for eight years. Mary Carlic owns a gift shop in Marcellus, N.Y., called The Wren’s Den, which she opened in May 2012. At the shop, she sells the lotions, soaps and creams. According to the gift shop’s website, Mary Carlic was in the sales business before she had children and opened her shop. In this stage of her life, she says the gift shop is a hobby as well as a business. “It’s become a nice business opportunity for us,” Mary Carlic said. “We are kind of into our own thing here. Trying to get away from supporting all of the large corporations and buying things local, supporting local businesses.” Carlic and his wife enjoy producing their own things because it allows them to be more sustainable. They support the production of food that is locally grown or products that are locally made. It might be easier for the Carlics to go buy Aunt Jemima maple syrup from the grocery store, but to them, making it themselves in their own home is more sustainable and pleasurable. Carlic makes this his lifestyle because he finds it enjoy-

able. He says he doesn’t watch much television and reads a lot. He also has his own garden where he grows Shiitake mushrooms. He cuts the hardwood, uses sugar maple and inoculates it with the mushroom spawn. The mushrooms flush after thriving in the woods after one year. A mess in the Carlic household is not something to panic about. In fact, when Carlic was growing up, his mother encouraged it. “My mom always raised my brother and I with the idea of anytime we disturb the house and make a mess, she called it a creative mess,” Carlic said. “She never yelled at us or scolded us. If we made a mess, she wouldn’t freak out. She encourages it. Same way now.” Inanimate objects like syrup, wax or honey might leave a mess inside, but they have animate objects in a shed that aren’t quite as sticky. Carlic and his wife take care of the chickens together. Carlic says he takes care of the chickens daily. Mary Carlic says the chickens don’t require much work. “The chickens are very low maintenance,” she said. “We make sure they have clean water and we collect their eggs. They are a lot of fun. They have become like pets.” Chickens are small, but the Carlics also have pets of a

After cutting several selections, Carlic carries his tree trunks back to his house to begin preparations for the Shiitake mushrooms.
Carlic drills about 100 holes in each log, one-eighth to one-sixteenth inches deep, four inches apart. Carlic fills each hole with mushroom spawn. It takes about a year for the mushrooms to grow.

larger size, like goats. “She wanted goats,” Carlic said. “I had a goat as a kid and they are work.” Even though Carlic says goats are high maintenance, their personalities and qualities supersede the negative factors of owning them. “The goats are purely pets,” Mary Carlic said. “I have a thing for goats. I think they are quite entertaining animals. I had wanted goats for a while and Steve said ‘No, you don’t need goats,’” she said. The newest addition to the Carlic family will be sheep in the spring. Carlic is able to share his sustainability hobby with his daughter. Grace Carlic is also into gardening, local economy and food lifestyle her father enjoys so much. During the holidays, Grace Carlic shopped at local stores, rather than spending money at large businesses and corporations. She said she helps with the chickens and the maple syrup, and expressed her approval for what her father is doing. Said Grace Carlic: “My dad always says he is proud of me, but I’m so proud of him. He’s truly doing something amazing. His efforts, what he’s trying to do, is so smart. It’s hard. It’s not easy, especially because of the property we live on. It’s inspiring to see the work he puts into it.” email@example.com
Carlic tends to a variety of animals, products and food. Here are some of those passions calculated out:

3-4 pounds per year

Orange Orators club holds public speaking competition
chase gaewski | photo editor Nelson Pardeen and Susan Watts, a former SU ITS worker and president of the Orange Orators Club, respectively, interact after Pardeen wins a public speaking contest.
By Chelsea DeBaise FEATURE EDITOR
At the front of the Peter Grant room in Bird Library, Kirsten Guonchali paced in front of an image of a half filled glass of water. “Life is not fair,” Gunochali said authoritatively in front of a panel of judges and onlookers. “Everybody at some point has a cross to bear or a burden to carry.” Guonchali is a member of the Orange Orators club, and one of several competitors who participated in a Toastmaster’s public speaking contest on Tuesday. Her speech opened the competition, held at noon with a diverse crowd making up the audience, in terms of both age and ethnicity. The Orange Orators are a club based at Syracuse University as a part of the Toastmasters, a larger campus-based organization. Winners of the club level events move on to area competitions, and from there district and divisional level competitions. The contest featured two areas for speech giving—international speeches and tall tales— both of which had the winners move on to the area level of competition. Guonchali’s speech, the only one falling under the international speech category, focused on the juxtaposition of optimism and pessimism in society. The speech highlighted the benefits of being an optimistic person, including an example showing the fulfillment Mother Theresa appeared to experience her life “seeing her glass half full,” as Guonchali put it. The tall tale speakers followed the international speech, starting with John Nulan. Nulan’s tale weaved around the idea of jumping out of a plane using a picnic blanket as a parachute, and going on a series of unlikely adventures in the Yellowstone National Park. The other two tall tale competitors, Jennifer Jeffrey and Nelson Perdee, presented their tales after Nulan, keeping within the sub-five minute time restriction. Jeffrey’s piece was about a painting of colored horses coming to life, while Perdee’s was a comical piece about the frustrations of a gardener. Perdee, a pastor and former information and
technological services worker at SU, won the competition and will be moving on to the area level for the tall tales division. Perdee joined the club in April of 2007, and began entering speech competitions six months ago. “I’ve always done public speaking,” Perdee said. “I simply wanted to do better.” While his original intent for joining the club was to improve upon his communication skills for his work as a pastor, Perdee admits that he has begun to enjoy all elements of the public speaking club. His tall tale was largely based around comedy, and in the competition he entered six months ago, he made it to the district level with a speech in the humor category. For Perdee, the enjoyment he gets from participating in the Orange Orators comes not only from his own performances, but in his ability to partake in evaluating others. “In many ways, the thing I now find most enjoyable about Toastmasters it the opportunity to work with others, helping each other improve,” Perdee said. “I’ve not seen anybody who has tried to work with the program who has not improved.” This idea of constant improvement for members within the club was one shared with the club president, Susan Watts. Watts served as a moderator for the Tall Tales and international speech competition. Watts, the president of the club since July 2012, took the position because of her belief in what it was the Orange Orators were doing, and her desire to make it even better. “It doesn’t matter what level they come in at, we see growth in everybody that comes,” Watts said. “It’s really fun to watch and exciting to be a part of.” The club was originally founded with only SU faculty in mind, though it has expanded to cater to students as well as other members of the Syracuse community. For Watts, this is one of the many benefits of the club. Said Watts: “It provides a lot of diversity. It’s a great experience because it’s a lot of different personalities and backgrounds in the club.”

rocery shopping at the Syracuse Real Food Co-Op, located at 618 Kensington Road, allows you to help the community while buying locally grown produce and fresh take-out meals. A food co-op is a collectively owned grocery store with a focus on natural foods that are often locally sourced. The Syracuse Real Food Co-Op’s website lists its local farmers and producers, such as Harvest Home Organics and Ithaca Soy, who supply the store. The co-op is mostly member-run. After paying a one-time fee, members are required to provide some sort of service — like working a few hours in the store — in exchange for benefits such as discounts. Still, the friendly staff greeted us with a warm smile when we walked in the door, and were attentive and helpful in finding everything I needed. The co-op has produce that shoppers rarely

get to see, including fresh turmeric and burdock root, and huge packages of tempeh and tofu. Even the bulk food section will rock your world. It has everything from granola to sesame seeds to dried shiitake mushrooms. To top it off, it’s way cheaper than your average supermarket. The store offered free samples of homemade Super Black Bean Dip paired with chili-lime tortilla chips on the day we visited. The mass-produced chips were perfectly salty with a sweet tang of lime. Many lime-flavored tortilla chips taste artificial, but this wasn’t the case with this brand. The dip was flavored pungently with lemon and peppered with feta cheese. The lemon’s acidity went nicely with the meatiness of the beans and saltiness of the feta cheese. The samples were so good that we ended up buying a bag of chips and a container of dip. If offering free samples isn’t enticing enough, the co-op has a great take-out section: soups, sandwiches, salads, sushi, noodle bowls, cupcakes, muffins, coffee and dips of all kinds. The list goes on. Vegans, pescatarians and carnivores will all be able to find something among the co-op’s diverse options. Take-out items are priced by the pound, with every container weighing a different amount. In other words, you can get a decent amount of food for cheap. We bought several small containers of different items. The first was vegan chicken salad. I am not a vegan, but I cook with soy products often and know how hard it is to make a non-chicken salad taste even remotely like chicken, and this version was pretty good. The “meat” of the salad was textured vegetable protein (TVP) combined with a decent amount of vegan mayonnaise, carrot, celery, sundried tomatoes and lemon juice. It made for a hearty
salad that was both crunchy and creamy. We also got a small container of the barbeque tofu. To me, barbeque should taste sweet and spicy, but this tofu was much too sweet — it masked every other flavor. I could taste only a hint of barbeque. I did detect some smokiness, which I enjoyed, but I wished there was more. Still, the dish’s biggest downfall was the dry tofu. However, one of the best parts of the take-out bar at the co-op is the vast array of dips and spreads. There is everything from guacamole to salsa to baba ganoush. I tried the roasted red pepper hummus. The hummus delivered on its title, tasting of pure chickpeas, tahini and red bell pepper. It was creamy and had a nice spice after each bite. Although I wish the hummus had been smoother, it was still delicious.
If you’re going to get one thing from the co-op — get the bread. There are several different kinds available, like focaccia and baguette, which are baked fresh and delivered to the store daily. We bought a whole wheat loaf for $4.29. It was made with whole wheat f lour, walnuts and f lax. The loaf was hearty, dense and moist, with lots of seeds for added texture. Essentially, it was everything you could want from whole wheat bread. Unlike a lot of co-ops, this one doesn’t have a dining area. It’s a little inconvenient, but as long as you aren’t planning on eating there, it’s fine. At the co-op you can get a portable, tasty meal while doing something even more important at the same time: supporting local business. email@example.com

“That’s the fight that we’re ready for.” Shafer hired George McDonald to be his offensive coordinator. McDonald is known as one of the top recruiters in the country.

Cooper had offers from Illinois, Louisville, Miami, North Carolina State, Oklahoma State, South Carolina and Tennessee, among others, according to Scout.com. For a team losing its starting wide receivers, Cooper could step right into a key role. “He uses his hands, catches the ball extremely well away from his body,” Cooper’s high

High School quarterback Austin Wilson and Jersey Community (Ill.) High School quarterback Mitch Kimble. Wilson committed to Marrone and remained committed to the Orange, but Kimble was one of the first offers the new Syracuse staff made.

The other three-star prospect in the group is defensive end Trevon Trejo, who played at Golden West College in California. Overall, Syracuse has 20 commits preparing to make their decisions official on Wednesday when they sign their letters of intent. All of the recruiting done by Marrone and his staff, and
then Shafer and his staff, concludes when all of their recruits sign the dotted line. That’s when the prospects can finally break open the playbook and learn Syracuse’s systems. “One thing I do know is that you never know until Signing Day,” Shafer said. “That’s an absolute.” firstname.lastname@example.org @chris_iseman

SU hopes fall success carries over to track By Jesse Dougherty STAFF WRITER
At the 2012 Big East men’s cross country championship, Martin Hehir was thinking about nothing but a team victory. Regardless, he crossed the finish line before any other runner. “In the last mile, it came down to me, my teammate Joe Whelan, and a runner from Providence,” Hehir said. “I was able to come out on top and the personal victory was just icing on the cake.” But Hehir’s achievement of becoming the 2012 individual Big East Champion was just a subplot to Syracuse’s conference championship, its third since 2009. Since many of the same runners that comprised the championship cross country team also run distance track, Syracuse hopes to attain similar success in the coming spring season. Winning a conference championship in track and field requires a combined effort from the sprinters, pole vaulters, and shot putters alike, so the men’s distance runners have set their sights
on a more practical goal – to be the best at their craft in the final year of the Big East. “How we are approaching it is that we want to score the most points of any distance program in the Big East,” said Chris Fox, the head coach of both the cross country and track and field teams. “It will justify all that we do and help us carry over what we did in cross country.” In his running days, Fox competed in cross country and distance track, and is familiar with having success in both sports. He was a two-time All-American in cross country, a four-time All-American in distance track and was equally fond of both forms of racing. Along with Hehir, sophomore runner Ryan Urie looks to his coach’s past success to lead two teams to their own success this calendar year. Urie finished ninth in the Big East championship in the fall, and the feeling of the team’s victory is something he wants to capture again. “In the morning of the Big East championship, we were just focused on running, and
it was just a normal race,” Urie said. “But afterwards it was euphoria, I mean we were just so excited and I’ll never forget it.” As the team looks to build on its fall accomplishments, it won’t need to change much when it comes to their training. Distance track and cross country are very similar, with the pace of the races being the biggest difference. “Cross country is all about strength because the races are five or six miles,” Hehir said. “When we get to track we’ll be doing a lot more faster stuff to make sure we are ready to really kick it at the end of a race.” Running cross country takes both strength and resilience, as the tempo of the race and conditions of the course are constantly changing. On the track, successful runners find a rhythm that allows them to push to the limit in the final stretch of the race. As the distance runners make the transition to the spring season, they will certainly be targeted by the rest of the pack. Georgetown, a program that has had much success in distance in recent years, finished second behind Syracuse at the Big East cross country championships. Fox sees the Hoyas as the Orange’s toughest hurdle in reaching its goals this spring season. “With Georgetown it could be tough to reach our goal, but I’m still confident,” Fox said. “This is the last year in the Big East so we want to go out on our terms. We did what we wanted to do in the fall, and now the distance races in track are most important to us.”

Ianzito thrives, leads in SU’s trademark up-and-down style By David Wilson ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
Steve Ianzito could do whatever he wanted on the field in high school. He made contributions on both ends of the field. He got out in transition. He dominated on the wing. He played on the man-up and the man-down. And that’s exactly why he loves playing the up-and-down style of lacrosse Syracuse is known for. “You come to Syracuse University, they recruit you as an athlete,” Ianzito said. “If you’re a midfielder you should be able to play both ways.” A Clay, N.Y., native and lifelong Orange fan, Ianzito was voted captain this past offseason. As a part of a small senior class on a young team, the midfielder has embraced a major leadership role, and now serves as an example to younger players as SU readies itself for the regular season. Ianzito arrived at Syracuse with little hype. He was a star offensive midfielder at Cicero North Syracuse High School where he scored 42 goals as a senior and was a 2008 U.S. Lacrosse All-American, but he didn’t crack Inside Lacrosse’s top-100 list. After redshirting in 2009, he struggled for two years to find a place on the field. He recorded just eight points in two seasons and couldn’t find a way off of the Orange’s second midfield line. At the beginning of his junior year, he still
had trouble finding the field, picking up just one ground ball – his only stat – in the first two games of the season. That’s when SU head coach John Desko approached Ianzito about moving to defense. “I think he was lukewarm at first,” Desko said. “And I think as he did it, he saw … he plays a lot of lacrosse. He’s playing more now than he would’ve if he was one of the offensive midfielders.” It was a tough first test. He made his debut as a defensive midfielder against top-ranked Virginia. The Orange fell 14-10 and Ianzito didn’t do much on the stat sheet, but he remembers being comfortable for his first time on the defensive end. It’s a move he now hopes rouses his teammates. As a player who converted positions, Ianzito has a unique perspective having played both sides of the ball. It also sets an example for a team that asserts its will to do whatever it takes to win. “To see me change positions like that – go from offense to defense – hopefully will inspire them,” Ianzito said. “We need more two-way middies, and that’s why my teammates voted me captain this year. It’s an unselfish move. I loved offense and it was painful to switch to defense at first, but I love defense now, so it changes for the better.” SU attack Billy Ward is Ianzito’s roommate. He’s seen him grow since he switched to defense
stacie fanelli | staff photographer STEVE IANZITO has embraced his role as a multifaceted defender for Syracuse. The fifth-year senior won 10 ground balls last season, anchoring the Orange defensively. and said it’s made him a better leader. Before last year, Ianzito was just another face on the offense, but the move, Ward said, paid dividends. “He found his role spring of last year as a defensive middie and he’s just taken off with it,” Ward said. “And that’s what it comes down to, you’ve got to find your niche on the team.” When the NCAA approved rule changes this past offseason to speed up the game, no one was happier than Ianzito. While he doesn’t miss offense too much – he loves “being mean” on the defensive end – it’s an
opportunity for him to still be able to play at both ends of the field. He can get back to the style he played in high school, running up, down and all over the field, and like everything else he does, it will make Syracuse better. “It’s going to be a fast-paced game,” Ianzito said. “I can play defense, I can get a couple more runs on offense, I’ll be able to dodge some offensive middies who are not that good on defense, running in transition, I just love it.” email@example.com @DBWilson2

Orange on verge of program’s single-season victories record By David Lauterbach STAFF WRITER
Two wins. That’s all Syracuse needs to match its all-time record for victories. Following a disappointing season in which the team finished 10-22-3 overall, the Orange (16-11-1, 10-3-1 College Hockey America) was determined to play better this year. But after losing its first two games of the season, it didn’t look like SU was going to improve. Last season, Syracuse ended with a 5-10-2 conference record and was knocked out of the conference tournament in the first round. This year, the Orange won its sixth conference game in January against Lindenwood, and is just seven points away from locking up the No. 2 seed in the CHA tournament. “I think our team chemistry off the ice is 10 times better than last year,” said forward Shiann Darkangelo. “Everyone gets along and everyone knows that our goal is to win CHA.” While this season has gone much better than last, SU is still chasing its best record as a program. Syracuse finished 18-17-1 overall and

Hall’s 23-point effort moves her into the 1,000-point club after starting the game with 997. Hall joins Alexander and Tyson-Thomas as active 1,000-point career scorers. Alexander became SU’s all-time leading scorer in a loss to Villanova on Jan. 26. “It’s unbelievable,” Hillsman said. “It’s a testament to her (Hall’s) work ethic.” After holding a 31-27 halftime advantage, SU’s lead shrunk to a point when Cincinnati’s Alyesha Lovett nailed a 3-point shot just 25 seconds into the second half. The Orange embarked on its key 10-0 run on the next possession, when Hall missed a 3 but grabbed her own rebound and made a layup. The run concluded with an Alexander jumper with 16:08 remaining, as Syracuse held the Bearcats without a bucket for nearly five

8-8-0 in conference play three years ago. During the weekend the Orange set a new best mark for conference wins, sweeping Robert Morris on the road. But according to Darkangelo and forward Holly Carrie-Mattimoe, the goal this year wasn’t to have the best regular season in program history, it was to have the most successful postseason. “To go far in that tournament would be a huge thing,” Carrie-Mattimoe said. “The will to win. We all came in here knowing what we want to do, and I think we’re proving it on the ice.” Since losing five of six between Dec. 7 and Jan. 15, SU has been on a tear. Syracuse is riding a six-game winning streak, with all six victories coming against conference foes. Earlier in the season, Carrie-Mattimoe talked about the team’s need to play well in regular season conference games in order to prepare for the tournament. Overall, the Orange has the second best CHA record, and only has one more loss than league-leader Mercyhurst. Head coach Paul Flanagan said part of the
minutes. The Bearcats’ Kayla Cook made a 3 with 14:26 left to make the score 41-35, but SU responded by scoring the next six points and led by double digits the rest of the way. Despite Cincinnati’s struggles throughout the season and a 0-9 conference record, Hillsman was impressed by the way the Bearcats competed throughout the game. The Bearcats have lost four of their nine conference games by eight points or less, and possess more talent than their record may indicate, Hillsman said. “You look at their record and you would think they’re bad, but they’re not really that bad,” Hillsman said. “They’ve got good players. In the first half, they played well and we played well. We just wore them down.” For the game, the Orange shot 49 percent (25for-51) from the field while holding Cincinnati to a 31.5 percent clip. Alexander went 8-for-12 with her usual selection of mostly inside attempts while hitting 7-of-12 at the line. Hall went 7-for-13 overall (2-of-3 from beyond the arc) and made 7-of-8 free throws. “We took very good shots,” Hillsman said. “That was a key in the game, taking good shots. When you give yourself a chance by taking good shots and making the shots, you’ve got to give yourself credit. Give our kids a lot of credit tonight.” firstname.lastname@example.org
success is due to the rising level of competition in the conference and SU’s ability to adapt. “The league has changed, I mean we have matured as a program,” Flanagan said. “As we’ve matured, the expectation should be that we should get more wins.” Since the birth of the Syracuse program, RIT, Lindenwood, and Penn State have joined the CHA. The Orange has taken advantage of those young programs and has a 7-0-1 record against them this season. Four out of SU’s final six games are against RIT and Lindenwood. But while beating up on young teams might not be something to be proud of, Flanagan said it’s important to the team’s success as a whole. “We would expect to win, maybe not all of those games, but at least a large percentage of them,” Flanagan said. “I think the combination of the new teams and the fact that we’re a veteran program contributes to that (success).” Winning easy games against lesser teams can boost confidence, but forward Margot Scharfe said sometimes not being able to out-
play some of the harder teams has helped the team focus and get better. “I think we realize that we have to be a gritty team,” Scharfe said. “We need to work as hard as we can and not let anyone slide.” Letting games get away hasn’t been a major problem for Syracuse, but it has added games to the loss column. In October, the Orange lost a game to Quinnipiac when the Bobcats scored with seven seconds remaining in overtime. Then, in December, SU lost two games in a row by one point to Clarkson. Flanagan said those two games, specifically, helped motivate the team to not only get better on the ice, but also off of it. Team chemistry has been something that Flanagan has preached this season, and it’s rubbed off on his players, as well. “I think we are a lot more cohesive and we all love each other,” Carrie-Mattimoe said. “In seasons, you’re going to have lots of ups and downs. But when the team’s cohesive, there’s going to be a lot less downs and I think that adds to our winning.” email@example.com

SU fills 2013 class after coaching change By Chris Iseman SPORTS EDITOR
When he took over as head coach, Scott Shafer immediately went to work keeping Syracuse’s recruiting class intact in the wake of Doug Marrone’s departure to the Buffalo Bills. For the last month, Shafer and his new assistant coaches crisscrossed the country, convincing some recruits to stick with the Orange, and others to join. The dizzying process is finally at its conclusion.
Syracuse’s 20 commits in the Class of 2013 will sign their Letters of Intent on National Signing Day on Wednesday. Nine of the 20 have three-star ratings from Scout.com, and among them are two quarterbacks who could be the Orange’s starter next season. The class stretches West to California and South to Florida. Even with the losses of two key commits, Syracuse’s recruiting class remains strong. There was no guarantee SU’s group of signees would resem-

When Marrone left and took several assistant coaches with him, including offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, uncertainty about SU’s recruiting class hovered over the program. “We have a lot of people coming in trying to poach them and take advantage of the situation,” Shafer said at a press conference last month.

For the first half of Syracuse’s road matchup with Cincinnati on Tuesday, the score did not reflect the record of each team. The same can’t be said for the second half. SYRACUSE 72 The Bearcats CINCINNATI 48 hung with the Orange (19-3, 7-2 Big East), falling behind and battling back in the first half. But Syracuse left Cincinnati (8-14, 0-9) with a 72-48 victory, buoyed by a 10-0 run early in the second half that turned a 31-30 nail-biter into a 41-30 SU advantage. The win, Syracuse’s third straight, moves the Orange into a tie for third place in the conference standings. With every victory, Syracuse moves closer to the ultimate goal of ending its five-year NCAA Tournament drought. “We had a big second half, which was big in the game,” Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “We competed at a high level, showed a solid work ethic and really pushed the pace of the game.” SU’s senior class has demonstrated game-changing ability in addition to its leadership throughout the season, a characteristic readily apparent Tuesday. Seniors Elashier Hall, Kayla Alexander and Carmen Tyson-Thomas served as the Orange’s three leading scorers against the Bearcats, with Hall and Alexander leading the way with 23 points each. Tyson-Thomas was next with nine, and no other Orange player had more than five. It wasn’t just on the scoresheet where the Orange seniors made their presence felt. Alexander and Hall were the team’s two leading rebounders, with Alexander at nine and Hall adding eight. The seniors’ energy throughout the game was pivotal in the winning effort, Hillsman said. “They played really good basketball,” Hillsman said of the seniors. “When you have that kind of effort from the leaders, it really gives us a chance.”
