Burglars hit 3 unlocked apartments By Jon Harris Asst. News Editor
Three apartments were burglarized early Sunday morning on South Campus, said Department of Public Safety Chief Tony Callisto. The burglaries occurred on Small Road, Lambreth Lane and Farm Acre Road, he said. The apartments were entered through unlocked doors, Callisto said. “All of these were nonforced entries,” he said. “These were preventable burglaries. Every one of them.” All three burglaries occurred in the middle of the night at about the same time, so it’s likely the same people committed the burglaries, he said. Callisto said it is unclear if students or community members are responsible for the burglaries, but he said the suspects were going around looking for unlocked doors and found some Sunday morning. The Office of Residence Life sent an e-mail to South Campus residents Monday morning, alerting them of
The addition of the Couri Visitor Center and Museum to Crouse-Hinds Hall is still in the works. Construction on the center has been delayed three times since the original announcement in May 2008. SU received a donation but is still trying to raise more funds.

Better safe than sorry
To minimize your chances of having your apartment burglarized, the Department of Public Safety suggests the following tips: • Report all suspicious people and behavior right away • Lock all exterior doors, even when you are in your apartment • Store valuable items in safe places and lock interior doors when you’re away • Record serial numbers of electronic equipment • Don’t advertise when you’ll be out of your apartment on Twitter or Facebook • During Spring Break, lock all of your doors, put the dowel in the sliding door safety track and close the rear curtains Source: E-mail sent out to South Campus residents Monday by the Office of Residence Life

Police give more details on weekend death of former SU student By Dara McBride News Editor
Syracuse police located the body of former Syracuse University student Philip Alcott at 8:15 p.m. Saturday at 1235 Old Stonehouse Road, said Sgt. Tom Connellan of the Syracuse Police Department. Old Stonehouse Road is just off Nottingham Road, approximately two miles from the entrance to South Campus. Alcott’s death has been ruled a sui-
cide, but the exact cause of death has not yet been released, Connellan said. Information about the cause of death will be released after the autopsy is completed. There is no indication of criminal activity, he said. Alcott, 22, was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and a former student in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management. Alcott, who enrolled at SU in fall 2009 but did not return to campus this academic
year, was a Syracuse resident. The location where Alcott’s body was found was not the location of his residence, Connellan said. This is a “very private and very painful matter for the family,” said Connellan, who expressed a wish that the community would respect the family. Because Alcott retained ties to the campus, Thomas Wolfe, senior vice president and dean of student

affairs, said the SU community wanted to reach out to support the Alcott family and the students who knew him. “We’re reaching out to all the communities where he spent time when he was a student here,” said see alcott page 4

o history of the past journalistic or literary activity of Hill students can be complete without making mention of The Syracusan and the Syracuse University Weekly, two publications which in the past years contributed no little amount to the shaping of The Daily Orange destiny and general university history. Those who are affiliated with The Daily Orange at the present time, or have been in the past, are filled with a secret elation that it has successfully arrived at the ripe old age of 25. And yet, that figure is still 17 years short of The Syracusan, printed first in 1878 and discontinued in 1920.

This publication was, in its first years, primarily an edition devoted to the accounts and happenings of the secret fraternities and other organizations on the Hill. It was first put out by an editorial board, composed of members of Delta Kappa Epsilon, Zeta Psi and Psi Epsilon. In addition to this type of news, however, there was a great deal of information of a general character, and the total issues were usually some 50 or 60 pages in volume.
At first The Syracusan was published every month. Later it was issued every three weeks and finally, in 1915, became a biweekly paper. At this same time also, the printing of it was taken out of the hands of downtown establishments, and the publication became a production of the Orange Publishing Company.
Ended in 1920
The Syracusan evidently enjoyed more or less prosperity. After its first appearance it gradually became larger in scope. A change in the content of the publication was especially noticeable. Increasing amounts of purely literary matter were seen in its pages and in the last era of its existence this kind of material, together with alumni news, formed the bulk of the paper, Beginning in about 1918, a gradual decline seemed to take place and The Syracusan made its last appearance on the campus in 1920. — Compiled by Laurence Leveille, asst. copy editor, firstname.lastname@example.org This excerpt was taken from the full version of this article published March 1, 1929.

Power outages affect many campus buildings Monday Fare hikes proposed for Centro buses By Mark Cooper and Meghin Delaney The Daily Orange
Quinn Ferraro spent almost an hour stuck in an E.S. Bird Library elevator Monday when a power outage hit multiple buildings on campus. Ferraro entered the library just before 5 p.m. and was planning to meet a friend on the fourth floor. But as soon as the elevator doors shut, all of the lights went off and power went out in the library, said Ferraro, an
undeclared freshman in the College of Arts and Sciences. Two outages affected a total of 418 National Grid customers, making the power go out in Bird, the Martin J. Whitman School of Management, Huntington Hall, Marshall Square Mall, Schine Student Center and part of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. The initial outage started at 4:57 p.m., but all campus buildings regained power by 6:37 p.m. Workers
from National Grid were on the corner of Walnut and Waverly avenues, behind the library, checking the lines and trying to switch the power back on, said Rick Paussa, a line mechanic for the company. The exact cause of the power outage had not been determined at the time, he said. SU’s University College canceled classes for the evening due to the outage, said Sara Miller, associate director of SU News Services, in an e-mail.
During the outage, Joshua Podrid was waiting for Ferraro on the fourth floor of the library when he found out she was stuck in an elevator. “I got a text from her. She was like, ‘Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, I’m stuck,’” said Podrid, an undeclared freshman in the College of Arts and Sciences. “I knew she was in the elevator because she was coming up to work with me.” Physical Plant officials arrived at see outage page 4

Members discuss potential University College student activity fee By Sean Cotter Staff Writer
Student Association is looking into implementing a partial student activity fee of approximately $45 per semester for University College students. SA Assemblymember David Woody presented data to members on Monday about UC student reaction to the idea of the fee. He also presented responses from UC students about difficulties they have had in gaining access to university activities or
events, as well as their level of interest in attending future events. Woody e-mailed the survey to all of the approximately 1,000 UC students and received 214 responses. UC consists of part-time undergraduate and graduate students attending SU, Woody said. Thirty-five percent of the 214 responses favored an activity fee, and 40 percent were against it, with the rest unsure of their opinion, according to a pie chart Woody presented at the meeting.
Woody also presented a bar graph of how often UC students attend campus events. Most said they never attend SU events besides guest speakers, he said. He then displayed a bar graph of what the UC students would like to attend if they had the chance. More than half said they were likely to attend a sporting event. Woody said a majority of people said they would be “somewhat” or “very likely” to participate in events if they were offered at student prices. “I think this represents well our
objective in trying to figure out what University College students want to do or what they would do if we enacted a partial student fee,” he said. Woody said the 25 percent that were “unsure” of whether or not they wanted a fee was a high amount, but he also said he believes SU could win many students over in favor of the proposed fee. Having the fee and the access that comes with it could encourage UC students to seek out ways to take part in their campus see sa page 6

Centro may raise its fares for Syracuse-area buses this April, making students dig deeper into their pockets to ride some buses that already run through campus for a fee. Facing a $4.8 million budget deficit for the coming year, Centro has made a series of proposals, including raising the cash bus fare from $1.25 to $2, said Steve Koegel, Centro’s director of marketing and communications. Changing schedules, altering some routes and adopting a new fare structure are among the proposals, according to the Centro website. Centro officials will hold a public hearing to get feedback about the proposals on March 9, according to the website. After the hearing, Centro’s board of directors will vote on the proposals, and if approved, they will go into

SU is bringing Schlosser to campus so he can discuss his book and the resulting slowfood movement, but he will also delve into the world of investigative journalism, said event organizer Esther Gray, senior administrator for academic affairs, in an e-mail. “Much of the discussion will center on health, sustainable agriculture and better consumer awareness,” Gray said. In an age of easily accessible fast and prepackaged foods, Gray said she feels Schlosser’s lecture will be particularly relevant to the eating habits of college students.

Shedding light Two power outages affecting a total of 418 National Grid customers caused the power to go out in several SU buildings Monday evening.

Whitman School of Management, Schine Student Center and a portion of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.

likely would not cover the full project and more external money would need to be raised,” he said. “Since it was announced, the fundraising and giving atmosphere has gotten a lot more difficult given the economy.” The university maintains an ongoing conversation with the Couris about the center, Quinn said. John Couri has been chairman of the Board of Trustees since 2004. He is the president of the Couri Foundation Inc., which operates youth programs for underprivileged children, and the president of the Ridgefield Senior Center Foundation Inc., which serves the local senior population in Connecticut, where he and his wife live. The Couris could not be reached for comment. Quinn could not provide a start date for the center or say how much money SU needs to raise to begin construction because the project remains in the planning and development phase. He also could not say if any of the needed money has been raised yet. The university has no plans to scale back the center’s design or development, Quinn said, despite the delay and need for additional funds. Fiedler Marciano, an architecture firm based in New York City, has worked closely with SU on the development of the project,

watchful of what they eat because of the use of pesticides. “So much of our food comes from countries outside the United States, countries that do not have the care restrictions on growing food that we do,” she said. Though Gray said Schlosser was invited to speak at SU largely because of “Fast Food Nation,” fast food is not the only topic he writes about. His next book, “Command and Control,” is about nuclear proliferation and is due to hit the market in the coming months, Gray said. Gray said the internationally recognized author quickly agreed to speak at Hendricks Chapel. “He is very enthusiastic about coming to Syracuse University,” she said.

Waiting to meet a friend outside of Whitman after his class got canceled, Paul Agrapidis, an undeclared freshman in Whitman, let people into the building while the power was out because the doors were locked. Jordan Clifford, a junior magazine journalism major, was in a photography class in Newhouse I when the power went out. “We were discussing Hitchcock in class, and our professor said something about how it offers suspense and something else, and then bam! The lights went off,” she said. Clifford’s professor canceled class after about five minutes because the class was nearing completion, she said. Clifford left Newhouse after the cancelation and went next door to Schine hoping to print something, she said. Once she realized Schine and Bird had no power, she was out of luck, she said. Members of DanceWorks were planning to practice in Schine at 5:15 p.m. but were not allowed in Goldstein Auditorium, said Katie Story, co-director of DanceWorks and a senior magazine journalism major.

said Martin Marciano, firm architect and SU alumnus, in an e-mail. The firm is also working with Thomas Walsh, executive vice president of advancement and external affairs at SU. Walsh could not be reached for comment. The center was originally going to be built in November 2008. Development expansions and a lack of funds pushed construction back to spring 2010. But the center still needed funds last spring, and the project was delayed another year. In the three years since the project was announced, SU has expanded its mobile technology, applications and social media presence. Given these changes, the university is looking to focus the center’s design elements on engaging campus visitors — with guided tours, for example — through these devices, Quinn said. “We think, as a result of advances in technology, the center can be more dynamic to visitors than before,” he said. Design studio Guillin+Merrell is creating exhibits for the center that will include interactive kiosks, calendars, maps and timeline displays with information and history about SU. College of Visual and Performing Arts alumni Susan Merrell and Judy Vannais, who is a consultant, are creating the content for the exhibits. Merrell and Vannais could not be reached for comment. Built in 1983, Crouse-Hinds stands eight stories high with two four-story wings. It includes
“Fast Food Nation” into an identically titled documentary. “Investigative journalism is not all about the printed word,” said Seth Gitner, an assistant professor in the S.I Newhouse School of Public Communications. Maya Johnson, an undeclared freshman in the College of Arts and Sciences, said she would attend the lecture to see if Schlosser proposes an alternative to fast food. “Fast Food Nation” was required reading at Johnson’s high school, but she felt Schlosser presented a lopsided argument against fast food, she said. “He kind of downplayed the benefits for being part of the fast food nation but didn’t give a trade-off for families in a rush or people in a rush,” Johnson said. Schlosser’s presentation is free and open to the public. Considering Schlosser’s high visibility, Gray said she anticipates a strong

effect by April 25, Koegel said. Cash fares could be raised to $2, but riders who buy multi-ride passes will only pay an additional 25 cents per ride, Koegel said. The proposals could affect several routes through campus, such as the Carousel Center bus that runs during the daytime hours and the Nob Hill bus. But the proposals will not affect SU shuttles that are already free to students, Koegel said. “For our customers, there will be little effect for the Syracuse University area,” he said. Centro has lost $12 million in funding over the past three years from its two main sources: the New York state government and the New York state mortgage recording tax, Koegel said. To compensate for this loss, the company has used reserve funds and hiked fares by 25 cents in 2009, he said. Katherine Urena, a senior international relations major who often takes the bus to Carousel Center during the week, noted the previous increase in fees in Centro bus routes. “Again? They just raised it,” Urena said. “It used to be $1, now its $1.25. I feel like there’s no reason.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Crossing musical genres, Kid Cudi appeals to broad tastes Bringing Kid Cudi for the 2011 Block Party marks a huge success for University Union and proves the organization listens to the suggestions of the student body. UU also showed foresight in opening 2,000 more seats in the Carrier Dome for the concert. Throughout Block Party’s past three years, UU brought in artists who cater to certain musical interests. Cudi’s music, on the other hand, spans a variety of genres and tastes. Three years ago, Sean Kingston and Fergie served a relatively limited, pop-loving demographic. Markedly different, Ben Folds and Guster are certainly beloved, but neither had recently released an album, and they left a large part of campus dissatisfied. Drake’s name exploded over the summer, but when he played at Syracuse University last spring, many were still focused on criticizing his former stint on the Canadian teen-drama “Degrassi” and were skeptical. He also had yet to release his own album. In addition to offering carefully
editorial by the daily orange editorial board constructed lyrics, Cudi fuses a variety of genres — rock, rap, hip-hop and electronic instrumental — that have garnered enough student interest to get him on the UU Block Party survey for a number of years. Other styles that hit their height in the passed six months, namely mashup and dubstep, have included and reinvented tracks off Cudi’s first album. Having released an album only months ago, Cudi is still very relevant on the music scene. The fact that rumors leaked about Cudi performing at Block Party weeks before the announcement shows students were eager to believe he would perform on campus. Cudi has performed twice already at Cornell University, and this year’s Block Party shows SU’s spring concert can hold up to other colleges’ spring celebrations.

Getting bike stolen passes student from visitor to true Beijing resident
any Americans wake up in the morning, have their cup of coffee, get dressed and expect to find their car parked in the garage. Most Chinese do the same — except they look for their bicycle parked in the garage. They keep them locked away, safe, because if you live in Beijing, chances are it could be stolen — like mine was, just two days after I bought the bike and its supposedly strong lock from a gritty bike peddler outside the school’s west gate. How can these people live if their mode of transportation is taken from underneath them at a moment’s notice? What are the chances the thief could even reach the pedals of the bike bought specifically for my 6-foot-4 frame? All the same, looking back one day, I will be able to say

I experienced a common Chinese frustration when I found my bike missing. China is home to more than 470 million bicycles, or a bicycle for every man, woman and child in the United States, Canada and Mexico. It’s more than likely bike thefts will happen when you live in an urban area as large as Beijing. Locals say you’re not a true Beijinger until you’ve had your bike stolen. One report from China Daily is about a Ph.D. candidate at Peking University, the university right next to mine, who has gone through six bikes in the six years he’s lived in the city. “I was lucky because I lost only one bike while I was at college in Beijing,” said Chang Xu, a recent graduate, in a CBS News segment from

Its chain rattled, and the rusted metal creaked as it was pulled forward. It was certainly big enough, but it was a clunker. “Wo bu yao, xie xie,” I said in my elementary Mandarin. “I don’t want, thank you.” So instead, I had to spring for a new, top-of-the-line bike. It glided like the wind and seemed to move faster than my car at home. But my bike was promptly stolen — thanks, China.

I would witness the miraculous site of the Great Wall or the fireworks during the New Year celebrations. But there are also the days when you wake up, have your cup of coffee and realize your bike has been stolen. These are the days you really learn about yourself. Are you the type who will be angry for the rest of the day or the type to take a breath, run off to class and buy a new bike that afternoon? China is no paradise. It doesn’t pretend to be. But I’m sure if Marco Polo had his bike stolen, he’d deal with it. Or like me, he’d buy a new bike with a better lock and keep it up in his room.

community, Woody said. Many UC students who were against the fee were older students with jobs and families who said they would not have the time or inclination to attend SU events, Woody said. Therefore, they would not want to spend the extra money on something they would not use, he said.
The fee would end up being between onethird and one-half of the full-time student activity fee, Woody said. According to MySlice, the student activity fee is $185. Near the end of the meeting, the assembly informally voted in favor of further pursuing a partial activity fee for UC students. SA may look into a future town hall meeting with UC students to get more feedback, said Andrea Rosko, chair of the Board of Elections and Membership. Woody said the idea for UC students to pay a fee in the first place came from a UC town hall meeting last semester. There was one UC student, senior paralegal student John Adams, in attendance.

in favor of the partial student fee because he wanted student discounts, he said. Assemblymember Perry Russom said SA needs to think five or 10 years down the road to make this decision because he thinks more people will enroll in UC due to difficult economic times. “I think we should do it,” he said. “I think it’s hard to come up with one solid answer that’ll please everybody, but if people are asking to be included more and don’t feel like they’re part of the university, then we’re not doing our job.”

stephanie lin | design editor the fly records a set for Orange Television Network’s new series “Loud & Clear,” a show that will present local bands in a candid light.
New OTN series allows local bands, production team to explore entertainment career options
By Tedi Doychinova
hile working alongside television industry professionals for her 2010 internship in Los Angeles during Winter Break, Crystal Barkley discovered she wanted a career path where her “heart and soul were in it.” She wanted to host her own entertainment show. Little did she know, she would jumpstart that career where her heart and soul lay months later. The broadcast journalism major would get the opportunity to get to the root
of the controversy and passion that lies within Syracuse University and State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry bands. The “Loud & Clear” music show on Orange Television Network will provide Barkley, the show’s host, with precisely that. And it’ll do so while also providing the same heartfelt real-world experience for the show’s production and broadcast team, as well as the local bands profiled. “Not only do we film and record the artists performing their music, but we
also interview them, which helps to create a better understanding of their personalities and individual stories,” said John Anthony Fontanelli III, the show’s executive producer and a television, radio and film graduate student. “Loud & Clear” is a music show where SU and ESF students showcase 30 minutes of artists’ interviews and performances. It is the first of its kind at the university and the brainchild of Fontanelli. Six bands in total will be profiled across six episodes airing weekly on OTN. The shows will also see loud and clear page 8

of View” exhibition Saturday, marking their first time presenting their works collaboratively. The free exhibit is open to the public and on display until March 24. The exhibit features designs and artwork by various fashion design faculty and staff from the program, such as Claudia Gervais, Jean Henry, Joyce Backus, Todd Conover, Jeffery Mayer, Karen Bakke, Laurel Morton, Elizabeth Shorrock and Megan Lawson-Clark. The exhibit is held in a dark gallery with spotlights showcasing the designs and artwork. Black walls bear the designers’ names in a white, typewriter font. A white frame hangs on the wall, and instead of a photo or artwork in the frame, text delineates the goals of the design program. “(Designing) is a big facet of what
we do. This is what we are. And then we teach on the side,” said fashion design professor Gervais. “We’re always looking for a venue to advertise and sell our work.” In the center of the room, mannequins display four wedding gowns on a raised white platform designed by Gervais. Her bridal gown designs represent the four seasons. The autumnthemed mannequin wears a halo of twigs on top of its tiara; snow-like sparkles cover the ground at the feet of the winter-themed mannequin; the springthemed mannequin holds flowers; and orange butterflies and sunflowers are scattered on and around the summerthemed mannequin.

be available on YouTube. The show will premiere between March 20 and 27 and will begin its first — and most likely last — semester of existence, due to Fontanelli and Barkley’s impending graduation, Fontanelli said. Fontanelli said he wanted to create a unique show that provides a medium for broadcast and music students alike to practice their craft. His two-goal system speaks to that. “The first goal is to create the best possible content for music lovers and, by doing so, raise the standards for student programming at Syracuse University,” Fontanelli said. “The second is to offer the opportunity for students to work on a project that mirrors and prepares them for a career in the highest quality of television production.” With the filming of two episodes under his belt, Fontanelli feels he has done just that. Ryan Whitman, a junior music industry major, was the artist showcased on the pilot episode of “Loud & Clear,” during which Whitman — a former SU Idol winner — was the first artist to experience what will become the show’s routine. Just like Whitman, each of the other five artists will perform three songs and then sit down for a custom interview with Barkley. The six artists lined up for “Loud & Clear” are Whitman, The Vanderbuilts, The Fly, Andy Gruhin, Nate Stein and Sophistafunk. The six musical groups were hand-selected by Fontanelli himself, who introduced them to the project during Winter Break. “I liked the interview section because I have an opportunity to explain my songs and where they came from,” Whitman said.

It’s in the interview when Fontanelli creates a place for Barkley to have that prodding realword experience, practicing the exact thing she hopes to do. The career path she discovered in Los Angeles. The show’s overarching theme focuses on unearthing the heart behind the SU bands and their music. Experienced SU artists, such as Whitman, are using the show as another chance to practice their act while at SU. “Loud & Clear” will give Whitman and the other groups the opportunity to broadcast their crafts to the rest of the SU campus. No longer will Whitman and the other five acts be relegated to spreading word of their music solely through live shows. Whitman realizes someone running on a treadmill at Archbold Gymnasium might come across his act on OTN. And for a guy like Whitman, who aspires to be on shows just like “Loud & Clear” after he departs SU, this is exactly the next step he was looking for. “I was just excited to have another venue to get my music out to,” Whitman said. What students would be tuning into is that specifically designed show structure where Barkley’s personal questions are at the heart of everything that goes on in the show. Whitman vouched for that personal feel and said there was an eased, relaxed vibe between artist and host. It all stems from Barkley’s extra effort of setting up preinterviews and developing a relationship with the artist prior to being on screen. By getting to know the bands and what they are about prior to filming, Barkley knows how to approach each artist and gets to the bottom of the passion and controversies within each band on screen. “These are not mainstream artists,” Barkley said. “They’re putting music in a new direction.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Sci-Tech Oscars are more prevalent than you think
et’s talk Academy Awards — no, not in regard to dresses and makeup and performances and whatnot but rather in regard to the geeky stuff. Sandwiched somewhere between the Best Costume and Best Original Score awards were the Sci-Tech awards. Though the recipients of the Best Film or Best Actress awards receive recognition for works completed and delivered within the year, those recognized for their Sci-Tech achievements have often spent numerous years creating and refining their fascinating contributions to the betterment of filmmaking. This category recognizes individuals in the industry whose scientific and technological contributions have allowed filmmaking and viewing to become more exceptional than ever before. Their technologies, although only gaining recognition now, have enabled the creation of high-caliber films throughout the decade. One of host James Franco’s most animated and well-received moments of the evening was his address to these recipients. His eloquent remark? “Congratulations, nerds.” The recipients definitely deserved the congratulations, and they are most likely nerds. And I mean that in the most complimentary manner possible. Considering the televised event gave little time to be split among the winners and their developments, I’ll touch on a few of the really cool ones from this year’s awards. Cool Sci-Tech award No. 1: Dr. Mark Sagar’s advances in facial-recognition technology. If you’ve seen “Avatar” or “King Kong,” you’ve seen the fruits of this talented nerd’s labor. At Weta Digital, Sagar developed the Facial Action Coding System up to its current sophistication, which allowed the Na’vi population in “Avatar” to exist

her students some techniques they could use in their own designs. She featured three jackets, a kimono and printed scarves in the exhibit. “I have a short kimono that is silk organza, and it’s dyed in the shibori Japanese fashion, which is tie-dyed,” Henry said. “The mid-length jacket with three layers took three weeks. It’s digitally printed organza.” Being a fashion design student can be costly because of the expense of supplies and fabrics, Henry said. She offered her students a solution by using inexpensive fabrics. Backus, a fashion drawing professor, displayed her figure watercolor paintings. One painting, titled “Seated on Iris Kimono,” por-

our ram is bigger than yours and seem so inexplicably real. The system uses a camera to capture the facial expressions of actors. This footage is interpreted and mapped by software that digests the video feed and quite literally maps it onto the actor’s puppet counterpart. This is nifty for the sheer fact that it allows the portrayal of an actor’s facial expressions to be replicated in virtual form without losing authenticity. Cool Sci-Tech award No. 2: Eric Tabellion and Arnauld Lamorlette’s strides into global illumination practices (also known as bounce lighting) in computer-generated feature animation. For those of you going “Huh?” rewatch “Shrek 2,” and you’ll catch my drift. This technology was first used in that film, and its benefits are quite visible. Global illumination enables lighting in computer-generated films to be more realistic and visually appealing than other common practices have allowed. Though Tabellion and Lamorlette did not create the global illumination technique, they refined the previously archaic process so it could be practically used in feature-length films. For example, “How to Train Your Dragon” — a personal favorite (who doesn’t like dragons) — was created using Tabellion and Lamorlette’s principles. Cool Sci-Tech award No. 3: Mark Noel’s creation of and John Frazier’s contribution to
the NAC Servo Winch System. You probably don’t know what this system is, but if you like big, dramatic movie scenes with adrenalinepumping manipulation of heavy objects (think helicopters, buses, etc.), you already unknowingly appreciate it. This system allows heavy objects to be suspended on wires and flown on movie sets, all while being manipulated from a safe distance and with spot-on control. This results in safe but realistic object manipulation, such as those found in “Spider-Man 3.” While the aforementioned awards are what I’ve deemed most nifty, the other winners are pretty cool, too. Four recipients were recognized for a variety of developments into render queue management systems. These systems are absolutely crucial to modern filmmaking practices in that they process the massive digital image files. A quartet of winners was recognized for the creation and development of software dubbed cineSync, which allows remote collaboration of visual effects, letting filmmakers far and wide work together on projects, despite the factor of geographic distance. Two sets of winners were recognized for advances in volumetric suspended cable camera technologies, resulting in cool establishing shots of cities or hills or special effects. If you want to see the speeches of the Sci-Tech award recipients, which were omitted from the televised event, they are all posted online. Not to mention very worth watching — as we all know, nerds have the best humor. Jessica Smith is a junior information management and technology and television, radio and film major. If you support her endeavor to have the Sci-Tech category given its own award show, you can e-mail her with your ideas at jlsmit22@syr. edu. Obviously, James Franco will be hosting.

trays a nude figure seated on a floral kimono. Backus chose these paintings because they relate to garments and fashion. “It’s important for students to see what we’re working on. They get to see the variety of talent,” Backus said. “I think it’s good to show personal perspective and demonstrate that teachers are working artists.” “(The fashion professors) put so much input in our designs, and it’s interesting to see what they do on their own,” said Naomi Tilewick, a senior fashion design major. “The department is so small, we’re like a family. It helps us get to know the faculty on a personal level.” “(My students) always ask, ‘What do you do?’” Henry said. “I thought that these examples would be thought-provoking. When it’s personal, it always means more to them.”

Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump releases ﬁrst solo EP, produces soulful sound
By Erik Van Rheenen
m arch 1, 2011
atrick Stump, former lead singer of Fall Out Boy, is fi nally back in action since the members of the group hung up their instruments in 2009 after a falling out (sorry for the bad pun). Since then, bassist and band heartthrob Pete Wentz formed electro-pop outfit Black Cards, and guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley went back to their roots and created the metal band The Damned Things. Stump, however, took the Jason DeRulo approach and decided to ride solo, scrapping the pop-punk sound he was confined to with Fall Out Boy for a more soulful approach. Since his solo debut, “Soul Punk” was set back with numerous delays. Stump released a holdover extended play, “Truant Wave,” to show off his chops as a different kind of singer and to keep fans from growing restless for new material. The EP kicks off with “Porcelain,” which opens with an overwhelmingly ’80s-style synthline. That segues into Stump’s smooth vocals, which come across as painfully overproduced but is a breath of fresh air from his Fall Out Boy days. Despite the heavyhanded instrumentation, Stump’s voice soars with some incredible falsetto runs. Although new at writing lyrics, Stump proves Wentz isn’t the only Fall Out Boy alumnus with a knack for witticisms. Stump created two versions of a single song, “Spotlight.” “Spotlight (Oh Nostalgia)” is easily the strongest track on the six-song EP. The track is far more organic than its counterpart, “Spotlight (New Regrets),” which won a spot on the album due to a fan vote. The emphasis lies in the heartstring-tugging, nostalgic emotions of Stump’s singing as opposed to the piano chords or pulsing drums that make up a key role of the song’s personality. Although “Spotlight (Oh Nostalgia)” was left on the cutting room floor, it sounds like a surefire radiofriendly single.
Stump’s songwriting draws several parallels to the late, great Michael Jackson, but the influences are almost forced onto the listener on “Cute Girls.” Everything from Stump’s rapid-fi re, staccato delivery to his constant switching to falsetto and back again sound like it came from a page ripped out of Jackson’s songbook. The track is just one moonwalk or antigravity lean away from being a full-on impersonation. Stump’s voice may draw more than a few parallels to Jackson’s, but he is still a long way from being the next King of Pop. “Love, Selfish Love” has a jaunty melody that meshes well with Stump’s sing-song voice as he eases off the soul pedal and crafts a sonically aesthetic dance-f loor jam. His vocals bounce up and down over ambient guitar riffs, nifty handclaps and vibrant drums, bringing some much-needed energy to the EP after the more lethargic “Cute Girls.” “As Long As I Know I’m Getting Paid” has an almost disco-esque synthesizer that seems a little out of place. Stump’s voice oozes with swagger as he ironically sings about the money-centric nature of the music industry. Overproduction and cringe-worthy lyrics rear their ugly heads, and Stump almost completely plays second fiddle to instrumentation that is a little too much to swallow. The EP closes in a big way with “Big Hype,” a track that sounds almost orchestral. Stump’s voice rings triumphantly on the uptempo tune and showcases his range with pride. If “Big Hype” didn’t make the cut for “Soul Punk,” then when the full-length album drops later this year, listeners can set the bar high for Stump’s future effort. “Truant Wave” is what it is: a holdover for fans disappointed by the continued delays for the release of the full-length album. Stump shines vocally on all of the EP’s six tracks, but if he can’t get a handle on the overproduction running rampant on his early efforts, the muchtoo-slick sound could quickly unravel “Soul Punk.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Alexander, Hemingway held in check by Connecticut defense By Michael Cohen Asst. Sports Editor
courtesy of the hartford courant Kayla alexander attempts to find the basket against UConn’s Stefanie Dolson in Syracuse’s 82-47 loss Monday. Alexander shot 3-of-10 from the field in the game.
STORRS, Conn. — Iasia Hemingway finally got a clean catch. She caught a pass at the left elbow with a little room to breathe. Maya Moore wasn’t in her face. Instead, Moore gave Hemingway a little space, and it made Hemingway think twice. She thought about a jump shot. She thought about driving. She did a little of both and was called for a travel. “Maya Moore is a great player,” said Hemingway, the Syracuse guard. “I think I was second-guessing myself.” The defense by Moore and teammate Stefanie Dolson shut down Syracuse’s high-low attack Monday in Connecticut’s 82-47 win over the Orange. Their physical play against Hemingway and SU center Kayla Alexander frustrated what has become the go-to option for head coach Quentin Hillsman. His two leading scorers — and best interior players — were limited to 19 combined points. Though Alexander scored a layup on the opening possession for Syracuse, it was clear she and Hemingway were out of sync from that point. The next three possessions for the Orange all ended in turnovers — two by Alexander and one by Hemingway. As Moore put pressure on Hemingway near the free-throw line, UConn center Dolson outmuscled Alexander on the low block. The 6-foot-5 Dolson kept her counterpart from getting early position on offense. Passes from Hemingway to Alexander were nearly impossible, and the turnovers resulted from forcing the ball inside. “They are a very good defensive team,” Hillsman said. “They are able to get out and pressure you. That’s why we did a lot of dribble-handoff stuff.” That consisted mostly of SU’s guards trying, and usually failing, to get into the lane against UConn’s defense. Twice, Tasha Harris was forced to throw up a shot attempt with the shot clock winding down in the first half. And on two other possessions, Alexander was called for three-second violations as she worked to get open — unsuccessfully — down low. When Hemingway finally caught the ball in some open space along the baseline, a position where she does not typically thrive, Moore was there to draw a charge. “UConn is a great team, and they’re No. 1 in the nation, so they’re going to give anybody a hard time with their defense,” Hemingway said. “I think we just had to play a little more poised and basically try to get our guards to score. Because they were playing so tight on us.” But the guards couldn’t score either. The Orange limped into halftime with just 20 total points, only five of which came from its starting guards. As a result, Hemingway tried to force the ball to Alexander when she didn’t have good position. Alexander threw up ill-advised shots that sometimes hit nothing but the backboard against Dolson. A 56 percent shooter this season, Alexander was held to just 30 percent on 3-of-10 from the field. She finished with six points and only a single rebound. “Obviously (Dolson) is a tough player,” Hillsman said. “She’s one of the most dominant post players in our conference. I hope that our

kids can progress as fast as she’s progressing, and we can have a dominant post player like she is going to be.” That dominance was exemplified on one possession in the second half. After good defense by Dolson forced Alexander to miss a layup, Phylesha Bullard fought for the offensive rebound. She pulled it in for SU and found teammate Carmen Tyson-Thomas streaking down the lane. As she pulled up for a jumper, Moore swatted the shot out of bounds with her right hand as the student section went berserk. “We expect to win,” Connecticut head coach Geno Auriemma said. “When you go out on the court and expect to win, you do things that lead to that.” The effect Dolson and Moore had on the game became evident as soon as Auriemma subbed Moore out for the final time in the second half. Hemingway caught the ball on consecutive possessions for the Orange and went right to the rim, scoring both times. But despite the frustration, Hillsman said Hemingway can use this game as a learning experience. She was challenged by one of the best, and now she has to work to get better. “I thought that Maya did one of her better jobs I’ve seen her do of actually guarding,” Hillsman said. “It was a good matchup for Iasia to see what she has to do against great players.” mjcohe02@ syr.edu

and running like they were today, it makes everybody feel good,” he said. “It makes everybody comfortable and makes everybody calm down and gives them a lot of confidence.” What Moore and Hayes were able to do was shred Hillsman’s 2-3 zone in two different ways. Moore scored the bulk of her 23 points inside of 15 feet. She beat the zone with midrange jump shots from nearly every possible location. The baseline. The left elbow. The right elbow. She lurked along the end line, almost hiding behind the Syracuse zone. But within an instant, she would flash out toward the top of the key, catch, turn and bury a jumper. It didn’t matter if Syracuse was contesting her or not. She hit 11-of-13 field goals on the night. “He has the best player,” Hillsman said of Auriemma. “When you look at good basketball teams, they all have that one player that can go get their own shot. And she’s going to get her own shot against any defense.” Meanwhile, Hayes thrived as a result of the attention SU paid to Moore. She poured in 18 points via a 4-of-7 performance from 3-point range. In the game’s opening minutes — when the bulk of Syracuse’s focus was on Moore — she hit a pair of 3-pointers to give UConn an early 8-2 lead. Then midway through the second half, she

the polls, too. In the latest AP poll, eight Big East teams dot the top 20. Pittsburgh is the highest-ranked Big East team, as the Panthers are tied for fourth with Duke. Villanova is the lowest at No. 19. Between those are Notre Dame (No. 8), Louisville (No. 11), Syracuse (No. 12), St. John’s (No. 15), Connecticut (No. 16) and Georgetown (No. 17). SU has no preference on double-bye Brandon Triche was on the court last year when Syracuse was supposed to be the benefactor of a double-bye in the Big East tournament. But what happened was anything but beneficial. SU lost its first game off the double-bye, falling 91-84 to Georgetown in the quarterfinals. It also lost one of its key players, senior forward Arinze Onuaku, in the process. “Last year we got it, and we lost the first game,” Triche said. “So the double-bye, it’s good for you. But again, you’re going to be playing a good team, especially in the Big East. … It doesn’t really mean a lot. Because again, playing in the Big East, you can lose to any team.”
hit two more on consecutive possessions. “I think we do a good job of surrounding our best players year after year after year with people that understand what their responsibility is around those best players,” Auriemma said. “And it all kind of works.” For Auriemma, that duo worked against the Orange for the second straight season. In last year’s 87-66 win over the Orange at the Carrier Dome, Moore and Hayes combined for 60 points. Hillsman even admitted that in Moore’s fouryear career, he hasn’t done anything to challenge the National Player of the Year frontrunner, let alone stop her. In four career games against Hillsman and Syracuse, Moore has averaged 26.8 points per game and shot 58 percent from the field. “Man, we haven’t challenged her once, man,” Hillsman said. “She’s killed us. It’s not been a challenge. I was just trying to not let her get 250 points on us in four years. She’s had some monster games against us.” So it seems only fitting that Moore and Hayes were the ones to make the play that caused Hillsman to take that timeout. Hayes had just split a Syracuse double team by Phylesha Bullard and Erica Morrow when she spotted Moore on the opposite wing. She fired a pass to her right, and Moore buried a 3. After that, she danced. “I’m really happy with the way we played,” Moore said. “We played outstanding.”
Triche’s sentiments prevail through most of the players as the team starts to prep for the Big East tournament that starts on March 8. Depending on what happens this weekend, SU will either play its first game of the tournament on March 9 or March 10. A win against DePaul would be the easy path for SU to move into the top four of the conference, a spot where it would earn the double-bye. A win would mean the Orange would need one loss from St. John’s in its final two games to surpass the Red Storm because SU holds the tiebreaker between the two teams due to its head-to-head win at Madison Square Garden. Syracuse could also earn a double-bye if it wins one game and Louisville loses its last two games — but that’s less plausible. But to Triche and the rest of SU, the glaring numbers of the double-bye stick out. Notably, since the Big East implemented double-byes two years ago, the top four teams are just 7-6 in the tournament. Three of the four top seeds lost their first game last season. “I feel like it’s great if we get a double-bye,” SU forward James Southerland said. “But we also have to stay focused. … The double-bye could help us, but I don’t want it to hurt us.” email@example.com

Robinson’s storied career influenced by UNC coaching great By Chris Iseman Asst. Copy Editor
Sitting in his room at the Carolina Inn 35 years ago, Glenn Robinson spent hours scribbling down every piece of advice he was given in a conversation he almost couldn’t believe took place. A young coach at the time, he didn’t want to forget anything. The opportunity to spend a night asking Dean Smith FOR THE questions about coaching may not ever come again. “I made very few notes while I was sitting there talking to him,” Robinson said. “But I stayed up almost all night writing down everything I said and what I learned during that time.” Whatever Smith said took effect on Robinson, who was only about five years into his own head coaching career at Franklin and Marshall College. Thirty-five years later, the advice ingrained in his mind, Robinson sits as the career wins leader in Division III with an 804-301 record. Robinson is one of the most successful coaches in NCAA basketball history, and when he thinks about how he got to this point, that conversation plays a pivotal part. Those two hours Robinson spent with Smith taught him more about coaching than he learned in his life up until that point. They sat on the floor of the hotel, Robinson asking questions he knew were general and far beneath the level of Smith’s knowledge. But with every one of those easy, general questions came a response only a coaching legend could come up with. “I really wasn’t smart enough to ask a better question the right way,” Robinson said. “But I was smart enough to realize what was happening. That he was answering these questions like three and four levels beyond what I asked. And it was just unbelievable.” Robinson soaked in the information and picked Smith’s brain as best he could. At one point, Robinson asked how many players he

should keep on a team. The obvious answer was 15 because that’s how many scholarships teams offered at the time. Instead, Smith told him any beyond eight better be great kids who would hustle in practice knowing they wouldn’t get much playing time. The conversation capped off a four-day trip to North Carolina, where Robinson watched Smith coach the Tar Heels during practices. But speaking to him one-on-one without interruptions was where Robinson learned the most. Robinson took those notes that listed as much of the advice as he could remember and added it to his own career. “I’ve done it for the past 35 years, so I don’t think I need to consciously think of it,” Robinson said. “Whenever anybody asks me about it, I remember it vividly.” He might not have to think about it, but it’s as much a part of his success as the games and players themselves. And when it comes to the players, they know they have to give Robinson everything they have because it’s what he demands. In a lot of ways, it’s been a challenge for the Diplomat teams he’s coached since 1971. Junior guard Georgio Milligan said it’s not always the easiest thing to play for Robinson because it’s a struggle to meet his expectations. Those demands separate the players who see playing time and the ones who sit on the bench. “If you’re not performing to what you’re capable of, you’re not going to play,” Milligan said. “All the yelling and the criticism, it’s constructive. So if you don’t take it and get the gist of what he’s saying besides the yelling, it’s pretty easy to fall to the sideline and not even want to play anymore.” Robinson’s lifestyle, though, doesn’t match his coaching style. The man who screams at his players in practice lives in a farmhouse down a small road about 30 minutes outside Lancaster, Pa. When he brought the Diplomats to his house after the season a couple of years ago, forward
James McNally couldn’t believe what his coach calls home. Seeing Robinson, one of the most well-known people in the area, living on a farm in what felt like the middle of nowhere was far from what he expected. “I think that was the funniest moment. … Coach lives like a half an hour away in a lot of wide-open land,” McNally said. “I wasn’t expecting that way out there.” On the court during practice, there’s nothing laid-back about Robinson. Like Smith, Robinson knows every player has to earn game time. So every player on Robinson’s teams, especially beyond the eighth, has to maximize his potential. It’s that advice that Smith gave him manifesting itself in Robinson-run practices. It’s worked for 40 years. But when Robinson thinks back over all those winning seasons, those two hours with Smith is what stand out. With every win, that conversation becomes more meaningful. Robinson knows exactly how much Smith’s words led to what transpired in the ensuing 35 years. “I remember at the time, while I appreciated it,” Robinson said, “I didn’t appreciate it to the magnitude to which I do now.”
Games to watch No. 12 Syracuse vs. DePaul Syracuse looks nothing like the team that lost four in a row last month. The Orange is back to winning consistently, and DePaul is a bad team. This game easily goes to the Orange. Prediction: Syracuse 78, DePaul 66
No. 4 Pittsburgh vs. No. 19 Villanova Villanova is struggling after losing its past three games. It already lost to Pitt on Feb. 12 and will fall again to the Panthers on the road. Pittsburgh has been great all year and won’t lose its regular-season finale at home. Prediction: Pittsburgh 65, Villanova 58
No. 4 Duke vs. No. 13 North Carolina Duke has only three losses all year, but it’s coming off a 64-60 loss to Virginia Tech. That’s not enough to send the Blue Devils into a losing streak as they close out the season. Duke should be able to beat the Tar Heels, sweeping the season series. Prediction: Duke 77, North Carolina 74
No. 1 Ohio State vs. No. 10 Wisconsin This game is a rematch of the Badgers’ upset of the Buckeyes back on Feb. 12. It’s hard to see Ohio State, back on top of the rankings, fall once again to Wisconsin. Especially at home. Prediction: Ohio State 72, Wisconsin 68
No. 17 Georgetown vs. Cincinnati The Bearcats beat the Hoyas once already, and that was by 12 points. Georgetown then went on to lose to Syracuse. It’s going to be close, but Cincinnati will get by Georgetown at home. Prediction: Cincinnati 64, Georgetown 62 firstname.lastname@example.org

Despite slow start, SU sees hope through play of freshmen By Rachel Marcus Asst. Copy Editor
In Syracuse’s season opener, Alyssa Murray showcased a characteristic that gave fellow attack Tee Ladouceur confidence their team was in good hands, even with a flurry of young players. The freshman attack Murray played like a seasoned vet in that game against Colgate on Feb. 17. And Ladouceur recalled one moment specifically. “She had a turnover, I think, in one of the plays,” Ladouceur said. “And the next play, she was like, ‘I don’t care that I had that turnover. I’m going to get this ball, I’m going to shoot it, I’m going to score it.’” If No. 9 SU hopes to return to the final four this year and go even further, it will be forced to rely on a bunch of new faces on offense. And after Sunday’s 21-11 shellacking, courtesy of No. 12 Virginia, the freshmen will need to step it up faster than expected. But Ladouceur is fully confident in the rookies. They wouldn’t be on the field if they weren’t good enough. “They are truly phenomenal players who are going to help us out tremendously this year,” Ladouceur said. Sophomore attack Michelle Tumolo knows the veteran players still need to take a role in
showing the freshmen the ropes. As talented as they may be, they’re still inexperienced, and that shows in SU’s 1-2 record this season. It is important to take the rookies under their wing, keep them pumped up and keep their confidence and energy high, Tumolo said. Tumolo tries to do that in game situations, especially with Katie Webster, a freshman midfielder who has been scoring at will for the Orange and carried them in the loss Sunday. “If she makes one mistake, I’ll just stop her and be like, ‘Katie, you’re awesome, keep going, keep doing what you know how to do,’” Tumolo said. “Because everyone makes mistakes. That’s how you learn.” But as important as they are offensively, the season — like the freshmen — is still young. Head coach Gary Gait recognizes their importance but isn’t ready to crown anyone a superstar yet. “There’s a learning curve, and we’re certainly getting a little better,” Gait said. “But we got a long way to go.” Luckily for the Orange, there is still plenty of time left to develop. Plenty of time left to analyze and correct any mistakes the freshmen make early on. That time is important because the freshmen make up key parts of the first and second midfield
“If she makes one mistake, I’ll just stop her and be like, ‘Katie, you’re awesome, keep going, keep doing what you know how to do.’” Michelle Tumolo
su at tack
lines. They have a huge role, and Ladouceur said it is better for them to learn through experience now so they can contribute in the more important games later. “Mistakes are going to happen, and we know that, and that’s fine,” Ladouceur said. “We want them to make mistakes. We want them to know that it’s OK to make mistakes, and we’re going to have their back through it all. “In the end, these early games, they don’t matter. The games at the end of the season are what matter, and if we’re going to make mistakes,
make them now, and we’ll learn from them as the season progresses.” Tumolo hopes the freshmen’s success so far will carry through as the games go on. If the freshmen aren’t performing up to their capabilities, she said the blame is on the veterans. They need to make sure the confidence of the freshmen doesn’t waver. For Murray and Webster, though, that doesn’t seem to be a major problem. Murray has started every game for SU. Webster has also started every game for the Orange and scored six goals in the team’s loss to Virginia. Ladouceur knows freshmen like them will help carry this team. So far they’ve produced, and she expects that to continue. Discussing Murray’s confidence after her turnover again, Ladouceur couldn’t stop being amazed at her actions. “She had all the confidence in the world,” Ladouceur said. “That’s awesome to see in a freshman because they don’t always have all the confidence in the world, and they’re kind of scared after they make mistakes. “She bounced right back after that mistake and was mentally sound. I think she’s going to be a phenomenal asset to this team, and you’re going to see great things from her.” email@example.com

MOORE Orange no match for Huskies’ Moore, Hayes in blowout loss By Michael Cohen TORRS, Conn. — While Maya Moore and Tiffany Hayes waited, they danced. Up by 35 points less than five minutes into the second half, Connecticut and head coach Geno Auriemma didn’t need the timeout. He spoke a few quick words to his players and sent them back to the court. “We got pretty good games from just about everybody,” Auriemma said. “It’s what makes nights like this special, when you can play like that and enjoy it.” So with Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman scribbling feverishly on his dry erase board, Moore and Hayes enjoyed Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” to the delight of the crowd. They could relax for a few seconds, especially since their offense had already
sealed a win. Moore and Hayes burned Syracuse (21-8, 9-7 Big East) for the second consecutive season Monday in an 82-47 win over the Orange. The pair combined for 41 points on the night after outscoring SU by themselves in the first half. They propelled the No. 1 Huskies (29-1, 16-0 Big East) to a 29-point halftime lead, from which the team never looked back. UConn took home the Big East regular-season title in front of 10,167 at Gampel Pavilion. Connecticut’s two leading scorers both started out quickly in the regular-season finale and catalyzed an offense that shot 61 percent from the field in the first half. They combined for 10 of the team’s first 14 points, something Auriemma said brought the rest of the Huskies into the game. “When Maya and Tiffany get off, see connecticut page 13

SU surges to No. 12 in AP poll; players mixed on double-bye By Brett LoGiurato Sports Editor
On the strength of two road victories over Top 25 conference opponents, Syracuse moved up five spots to No. 12 in the latest Associated Press poll released Monday. The Orange earned arguably its two most impressive road victories of the season this week — a 69-64 win over then-No. 15 Villanova on Monday
and a 58-51 triumph at then-No. 11 Georgetown on Saturday. “It was great,” SU point guard Scoop Jardine said Monday of the two wins. “It was definitely two teams that we owe. We went down there, we played in front of a large crowd, we stuck together, and we continued that winning streak.” The move up the ladder in the polls comes as another heavy swing in a
recent trend of swings for SU. Two weeks ago, the Orange was seemingly in disarray and in free-fall mode after losing two straight and six of eight overall in Big East play. SU stood at 7-6 in the conference at that point, and in two weeks the squad moved from the No. 3 spot in the rankings all the way down to No. 17. But Syracuse regained its confidence after a home win over West
Virginia and a subsequent home victory over a scrappy Rutgers team that pushed SU to overtime. “We had a tough game here against Rutgers,” Jardine said before practice Monday. “We found out who we were as a team. We really almost lost — and could have lost — that game, but we won because we stayed together.” And after the two road victories last week, the Orange is again near
the Top 10. To SU head coach Jim Boeheim, any doubts about his team that lingered two weeks ago are now resolved. “Three weeks ago, there were a lot of questions being asked,” Boeheim said. “I think these guys have answered those questions.” The rest of the Big East continues to represent the conference well in see top 25 page 13
