platform. The crowd, having only waved their arms when heavily prompted by the openers, cacophonously broke loose into a roar. And they danced. Backed by full-band fanfare, Macklemore opened his headlining set during a tour stop at the Carrier Dome on Monday with the swaggering “Ten Thousand Hours,” setting the tone for a bombastic, larger-than-life concert.

“I was really excited when I found out he was coming,” said Anna Lilikas, a senior music education and communication sciences and disorders major, who was sporting oversized sunglasses. The dancing didn’t come easy during the show’s openers. Mississippi native and rhymesmith Big K.R.I.T. tried with little avail to convince a stillarriving audience to dance along to his Southerntinged hip-hop. Heavy on club bangers, bonerattling beats and hype horns blaring from a DJ stand retooled to look like the hood of a solid-gold Cadillac jutting through the back of the stage, Big K.R.I.T.’s set didn’t engage in much banter. “Once again, I’m Big K.R.I.T., for those of you see macklemore page 9

McCullough announced his commitment to Syracuse on Nov. 5, 2012. The 6-foot-9 power forward is the No. 3 power forward in the Class of 2014 on Scout.com, and ESPN’s No. 16 prospect. He was expected to sign his letter of intent this week. “As a man you have to take responsibility for your actions I am accountable for mine.

Strong Hearts to replace Syra-Juice By Annie Palmer Asst. News Editor

Strong Hearts Cafe will bring its eclectic vegan food to the Hill when it adds a new location in Marshall Square Mall. The new location is slated to open by Dec. 1, said Devan Coon, a manager at Strong Hearts Cafe’s location on East Genesee Street. The store will primarily accept to-go orders to accommodate for the store’s small dining space and the high volume of traffic Coon expects to see from Syracuse University students and nearby hospitals. The store will also feature a smaller menu with “quickly prepared items” such as salads, sandwiches, the cafe’s famous milkshakes and a

fter more than 14 years of gracing the Syracuse skyline, the Carrier Dome roof may soon undergo a change. According to Harvey Kaiser, senior vice president for facilities administration, Syracuse University is studying the options available for replacing the Dome roof. “It’s starting to show some wear and tear,” he said. Kaiser said the severe winters have contributed to the Dome’s deterioration. The Dome has had to be lowered twice in the past two years so that snow could be removed from it, he said. “Each time you lower it, some rips may occur.” The roof’s surface causes problems with snow removal, Kaiser said. “The present Dome has a Teflon coating on the outside that is supposed to allow the snow to run of it. “Obviously, that method hasn’t been working lately.” Patrick Campbell, the Dome’s managing director, declined to comment on the situation. Kaiser said replacing the roof would cost at least $10 million. The funding for the project would come from “revenues in excess of cost” from the Dome, he said. There are three factors to consider when choosing the type of roof, Kaiser said. These include the cost of the new roof, the operating costs to maintain the new roof

NOV. 12, 1994 and the roof’s durability. Kaiser said a hard roof is being considered to replacement the current flexible fiberglass roof. “We’re looking into getting a hard-top roof because of the cost involved with constantly keeping the dome pressured,” Kaiser said. The Superdome in New Orleans has a hard dome. Since SU wants the Dome to continue benefiting from natural light, the university will look into getting a roof made of translucent hard material, Kaiser said. While officials are considering a roofreplacement plan, there is no need for immediate replacement, Kaiser said. “No one’s given us a warning that it’s going to fail,” he said. “We’re just thinking ahead.” “It’s sort of like a roof on your own home,” he said. “You see a leak here and there, and you realize, sooner or later, you need a new roof.” The effect of a new roof on SU sports teams is still unclear, according to Jake Crouthamel, director of the athletic department. —Compiled by Dylan Segelbaum, asst. copy editor, dmsegelb@syr.edu

SU to honor Native culture this month By Anna Merod Staff Writer

Syracuse University will celebrate Native Heritage Month throughout November with “wampum and peace” as its key theme. “The wampum is significant because it was an oral tradition for us. When the first people came in the 1600s, we agreed to live in peace,” said Hugh Burnam, a member of Native American Students at Syracuse and a doctoral student in higher education. As part of Native Heritage Month, the Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign will be giving a presentation titled “Two Row Wampum: Report from the River” on Wednesday, said Regina Jones, assistant director of the Native Student Program at the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Hundreds of native and nonnative paddlers traveled from Upstate New York to New York City during the summer to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Two Row Wampum Treaty, Jones

Interactive project engages campus with photos By Breanne Van Nostrand Staff Writer

Ten disposable cameras placed in different locations across the Syracuse University campus have captured snapshots of familiar places, silly faces, quite a few “selfies” and a bunch of smiles. Living SU orchestrated a small event focused on different views of the SU campus by providing disposable cameras for passersby to pick up and capture a moment. The event, Collective Perspectives, was intended to engage students and encourage them to think twice about their surroundings, said Annemarie Menna, a blogger for Living SU, junior anthropology major and a contributing writer for The Daily Orange. Living SU is a group of about 10 students working collaboratively to create thought-provoking content

and spread positivity on campus, said Jill Ouikahilo, director of communications for the Division of Student Affairs. Ouikahilo said the group aims to make its mark at SU by

enhancing an already-rich campus culture. Its main outlets are its blog and social media sites, primarily Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

The group’s mission is to engage, connect and inspire students across campus in a creative way, said Maryann Akinboyewa, Living SU’s blog editor and a junior marketing and writing and rhetoric major. “We are all about making students feel good and feel happy,” she said. Collective Perspectives was inspired by a similar event held at Ithaca College, Akinboyewa said. Living SU members placed the 10 cameras in strategic locations on Oct. 8, including the Quad, People’s Place, College Place, the Life Sciences Complex and Goldstein Student Center, she said. The photos were developed and posted on Living SU’s Facebook page in an album titled “What’s your point of view SU?” Because the disposable camer-

University to host OttoTHON in fall 2014 By Zach Schweikert Staff Writer

Next fall, Syracuse University will join dozens of other colleges such as Penn State, Stanford and Rutgers when it holds the first-ever OttoTHON charity event. The OttoTHON Dance Marathon is coming to campus to raise money for Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital. The 12-hour event is planned to feature music, dancing and other activities. The event is part of Dance Marathon, a nationwide program that partners with college and high school students to hold a 12-40 hour-long event where students try to dance for as long as they can and participate in other activities to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network hospital in their community, according to the organization’s website. A team of students, headed by executive director Jillian Lynch, is organizing SU’s event. After running a Dance Marathon event at her

Millennials should provide voices for those crippled by assault

T

he American Association of University Women reports that nationally 42 percent of college women who are raped don’t tell anyone about what happened to them — silenced by fear, shame, intimidation and confusion. Yet even for those who find the courage to report their sexual assaults, their voices are unwillingly silenced. Although the Department of Public Safety at Syracuse University has reported that crime on campus has decreased — through initiatives such as the blue light system, escort services and year-old University Area Crime-Control Team (UACT) — we should still take it upon ourselves as students to be allies for millennials at other schools. A Nov. 6 article by the Huffington Post’s online college section entitled “A Big Problem in How Campus Police Handle Sexual Assault Cases,” details the sense of carelessness, disregard and inefficiency of campus police in handling these situations. The article also explains the lack of follow-up between victims of sexual assault crimes who file the reports and the officers who review them. Such negligence reveals that campus security forces and university administration as a whole must commit to better protecting their students and meeting their needs. The Huffington Post reports that Amanda Tripp, a student at the University of Indianapolis, reported to her campus police at the

a chain reaction end of 2012 a sexual assault crime that was committed against her by an acquaintance. After taking “several weeks of speaking with a therapist before she felt comfortable reporting it,” Tripp’s courageous stance was met with dead-end results. After finally obtaining a time-stamped copy of the “rape report” months later in January, Tripp discovered that campus police determined “a crime did not occur” within 30 minutes of her filing the report and leaving the offices. Tripp would eventually have to file another report. After going back and forth with campus officers and the university’s judicial system, her accused assailant “was cited on a firsttime alcohol violation.” Regrettably, similar instances have also occurred across the nation at places like the University of Southern California. The Huffington Post cites that a student at USC, Ari Mostov, was met with the same disappointment and shock when her campus police met her sexual assault case with so

much resistance to action. “I feel like I was denied justice,” Mostov said when describing her experience. Such recent instances are shameful reminders that the culture embedded at places of higher education still has a long way to go in fostering environments that are intolerant of sexual assault and rape happening on their campuses and taking the concern of victims seriously. Campus authorities belittle the survivors of sexual assault cases by not being proactive in bringing them justice. It is sickening to think that a student who has already experienced so much has to then convince the force meant to protect them that they were truly harmed and hurt. The regular occurrence of these instances on college campuses indicates that this is now a negative phenomenon that requires immediate attention. As college students, we devote a countless amount of hours and dedication to doing great work for and at our university. It is up to the university to meet our needs and protect us when it matters most. Amanda Tripp may have said it best when she described the feeling and attitude she now has toward her school after what she has gone through. “I love my school…but they failed me when it mattered most.” Nina Rodgers is a sophomore sociology major. Her column appears weekly. She can be reached at nmrodger@syr.edu.

Former SU student questions Rosales’ candidacy for SA I would like to take the time to address a concern that I feel no one in this Student Association campaign season has brought up. This is the viability of Ivan Rosales as not only the President of SA, but as a candidate in general. It is perplexing to me, that a student — and former member of Student Association, who no more than seven months ago resigned (in shame) from the Student Association — is able to stand in front of the Syracuse Student Body and claim that he is the best candidate to be chosen as the next President. Mr. Rosales — who you may or not remember — was responsible for sending an anonymous email to The Daily Orange under the pseudonym “Tom Riddle.” This email, while containing information that was prudent, was written in a very unprofessional and disrespectful manner.

11/16

LETTER TO THE EDITOR This action led to the investigation of and his eventual resignation from the Student Association. In an article written by Meredith Newman that appeared in the DO on April 4th, Mr. Rosales stated that “I have lost the trust and respect of many members, and I will stop at nothing to earn that back,” he said in the email. “I truly love this organization, and I will stick by it through thick and thin.” I ask: What has Mr. Rosales done to earn the trust and respect back of not only the members of SA, but also the rest of us, the students of Syracuse University who he was supposed to represent? I certainly do not believe he

has done anything that warrants my trust, respect and most certainly, my vote. Even more concerning to Mr. Rosales’s decision to run for SA president is the statement made in his resignation to the assembly that “I no longer feel that the Student Association is the best place for me nor am I the best fit for it.” Mr. Rosales, these are very concerning, and very telling statements to who you are as a person, a candidate and potential president. With the election a week away, I would really like to see this campus hold you responsible for your actions and statements. You don’t have my vote — and I hope many follow me — but for the students who do plan on voting for you, they deserve an explanation.

As an SU alumnus and former member of the Student Association and Judicial Review Board, I proudly endorse Boris Gresely for president and Daniela Lopez for vice president for one simple reason: Where other candidates only talk-the-talk, Gresely and Lopez prove they can walk-the-walk through their comprehensive vision and detailed action plan. As with other candidates, Gresely and Lopez know and talk about the important issues. But other candidates largely stop here. Gresely and Lopez’s “Alliance for Change”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR is the only campaign with a viable, detailed action plan to 1) reform SA into an efficient organization, 2) reconnect with the student body and 3) redirect the organization to lobby on students’ behalf. Moreover, the “Alliance for Change” has the track record of success both within SA and other organizations to back up this plan. Other

candidates have publicly admitted to failing to achieve in their former positions. How can we expect anything to change with similarly deficient planning, but more responsibility? Within the student body, there is often the perception that SA elections are a popularity contest. Prove them wrong by voting Boris Gresely for president and Daniela Lopez for vice president on MySlice anytime this MondayThursday, Nov. 11-14.

IDE AS

Graduation rates of college athletes should not undermine professional career pursuits Statistics revealing the graduation rates of the Syracuse University men’s basketball team should not ref lect the academic caliber of the basketball program, nor ref lect the educational support these athletes receive from the coaching staff and university. If anything, these statistics should be reassessed by the NCAA to better represent the academic abilities of its athletes. On Oct. 24, the NCAA released the annual graduation rates of its Division I schools, which were based on four years of data collected from freshman athletes entering college between 2003-04 and 2006-07. Four-year graduation rates reached 81 percent nationwide. During that time period, SU graduated 87 percent of its athletes. However, only 45 percent of the university’s men’s basketball team

EDITORIAL by the daily orange editorial board graduated, according to the data. Last week, head coach Jim Boeheim confronted the graduation rate of the SU basketball program, disagreeing with how the data was collected. While this number is low, there is a reason for it. One of the major motives behind this graduation rate has to do with athletes’ decision to enter the professional basketball world. If given the opportunity, these and other student-athletes should accept the chance to excel professionally in their sport of choice. Critics should not discount the basketball program based on the desire of athletes to reach the next level in their career. These athletes are comparable to students

who leave college to pursue an offered job opportunity. The academic standards of the basketball program should always be monitored. However, graduation rates are not a fair measurement of the academic success of these athletes. Success in academics and a desire to pursue a career are mutually exclusive. Instead, the NCAA should consider the academic progress of student-athletes during their time in college, rather than their graduation rates. This measurement is a better ref lection of the academic success of student-athletes. The graduation rates of SU’s basketball players should be a point of discussion. However, the students are not the source of the issue. Instead, it is the system measuring their academic abilities.

Obama loses credibility among American people for carelessness, secrecy

T

here was a time when one of the major reasons the majority of the American public not only approved of, but also seemed to like, President Barack Obama was because he was generally seen as trustworthy. Political trust is something that, once lost, is extremely hard to regain. Recovering the American people’s trust will be extremely difficult for Obama to accomplish for the remainder of his second term. Credibility is one of the most important attributes for a president to have. Without it, Congress can define the terms and conditions of debate, leaving presidents essentially powerless. Obama has lost credibility in his second term for a myriad of reasons. The latest incident resulting in a loss of credibility for Obama is the revelation that the NSA has been spying on foreign leaders for a number of years, most promi-

nently Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel. Obama claims to have quite recently discovered the program and to have immediately ordered its discontinuation. The irony in this case is that even if what Obama says is in fact true, he still loses credibility and comes across as careless. Either Obama didn’t know about a drastically risky development taking place right under his nose — which is hard to believe — or he did know and simply kept the activities confidential. A president with a cleaner slate and more credibility may deserve the benefit of the doubt. In Obama’s case, however, I find this extremely hard to believe. On this and many other issues, Obama has been a self-proclaimed know-nothing president. First Obama withheld information from the public regarding drone strikes and then denied having had any

monkey see, monkey do knowledge of the controversial Fast and Furious gun-tracking program. Then he claimed to know nothing about IRS targeting conservative groups and individuals and about the Justice Department’s snooping on reporters. His response to the terrorist attacks that killed two Americans in Benghazi was incoherent at best and dishonest at worst.

again for both their personal and public mistakes. Yet apparently Obama would prefer to hide behind this charade that he has a lack of knowledge of the goings-on within his administration. The reality is the United States government is made up of an enormous bureaucracy. No president can reasonably be expected to know the goings-on of every department or agency within it at all times. Only the most partisan critics would criticize a president for something like that, and this is not the issue people have with Obama. The issue is that Obama has repeatedly hidden behind the excuse of ignorance far too many times on critical, weighty issues. The blunders that will likely go down as costing Obama the most in terms of credibility are his false statements regarding the Affordable Care Act. Obama repeatedly pledged to

the American public, “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.” Now that millions of Americans are receiving cancellation letters in the mail for their health care plans, this statement is impossible for Obama to defend. His half-hearted apology last Thursday did not help his case. Regardless of whether or not you agree with the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, it’s undeniable that it was described to the American public in bad faith. Presidents that were not trusted by the majority of citizens are almost never remembered fondly historically. That doesn’t bode well for Obama.

Initial voting turnout falls just short of last year’s numbers Asst. News Editor

As of 6 p.m. on Monday, 12.7 percent of the student body cast their votes in the Student Association elections, said Dan Hernandez, chair of the Board of Elections and Membership. He said that figure — which translates to fewer than 1,800 votes — is slightly lower than, but “on par with,” last year’s 13.5 percent voter turnout at the same time. Through Thursday, students can cast their votes for SA’s next president and vice president, along with two referenda. Duane Ford and his running mate Nia Boles want to ease the financial burden of tuition, make academic advising a work-study position and increase dialogue between different groups of students; Boris Gresely and his running mate Daniela Lopez have a three-part campaign of “reform, reconnect and redirect” to make SA

more accountable to students; and Ivan Rosales and his running mate Simone Goldslager are running on a platform of improving academics, diversity and student engagement. Hernandez said the Board of Elections and

said. The group will share their experiences through a discussion panel and by showing short films and photographs. On Friday, native prospective college students are invited to visit SU for Native Outreach Day, Jones said. She added that Terry Jones, the president of NASAS, will showcase and discuss several of his short films on Friday for the opening of the 10th annual Haudenosaunee conference. “Haudenosaunee directly means ‘People of the Longhouse.’ It was a way to reclaim our origin from the non-native people who labeled us as the Iroquois nation in New York state,” said Terry Jones, a junior film major and member of the Seneca Nation Wolf Clan. Burnam, a Native American Students at Syracuse member, said the group A Tribe Called Red will perform at the Skybarn on South Campus on Friday. The event will be free and open to the public, and Burnam said he expects students from other local universities to also attend. He described the group’s music as “a mixture of techno, rap, R&B and traditional native songs.” The last event is the 10th annual Haudenosaunee conference on peace, Jones said, which is on Friday and Saturday.

Membership exposed students to the candidates’ platforms to make informed decisions — hosting three full debates as opposed to one last year — in addition to putting on a Q-and-A session in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management and having the candidates attend a Residence Hall Association meeting. He added that the first debate, which focused on greek life, was particularly successful: 150 people attended, compared to an average debate attendance of 50-80 audience members. Hernandez said SA does as much as possible to encourage students to vote and inform them about the candidates’ platforms, but it’s ultimately up to students to vote.

es between the general community and the native community at SU by acknowledging Haudenosaunee culture, Burnam said. He added that there is still not enough visibility and awareness of the native community at Syracuse despite the success of the sponsored events. “I hope we can eventually have cultural competency training programs for faculty, staff and students. The more we build a relationship with the community, the closer we will get there,” Burnam said. Terry Jones said a challenge that Native American Students at Syracuse faces is visibility on campus. He explained that only 0.6 percent of SU students are Native American. Regina Jones said the Haudenosaunee Promise Scholarship created in 2006 improved Native American visibility. The scholarship, she said, pays for four years of tuition and housing for first year and transfer Native American students. Regina Jones said that this year, SU had one of the largest classes of students awarded the promise scholarship, which she estimated to be about 30 students. Said Regina Jones: “With an unprecedented number of students, I think they’re making strides through symposiums, speakers and events.” almerod@syr.edu

eliot grigo | staff photographer duane ford, ivan rosales and boris gresely discuss topics including academics, self-segregation and internal issues within SA at the presidential debate on Sunday. There was a slight hiccup this year with the online voting system available through MySlice. Hernandez said that every year there is a delay that prevents students from voting immediately when the online voting system goes live. Normally, he said, the glitch is fixed in about five minutes, but this year students couldn’t vote for almost 20 minutes. “The benefits, of course, are that we can reach every student, it’s the only way that we could reach every student,” Hernandez said of the online voting system. He said SA hasn’t used paper ballots in more than a decade but that all students have access to MySlice. “I think I saw three University College votes within the first nine hours of voting, which of

course is very low compared to all the other colleges, but just the fact that we can reach out to part-time students who would never see our booth or our polling station is amazing to me,” he said. Hernandez stressed that students should be aware of the referenda on the ballot as well as the presidential candidates’ platforms. The ballot includes two referenda that allow students to choose whether the student activity fee should be frozen, and whether SA codes should be changed to redefine the roles of speaker, president and vice president. Voting will continue throughout Thursday and end at midnight.

to get other students involved. Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital is a member of the Children’s Miracle Network, which provides funding to 170 children’s hospitals nationwide, said Lorie Riedl, retail development director for the Foundation for Upstate Medical University. “We’re extremely excited to be partnering with our neighbors up on the SU Hill,” Riedl said. “It’s an important relationship to develop, and we certainly appreciate the enthusiasm for supporting the sick and injured children in our region.” Riedl said the money raised will likely go toward the hospital’s Child Life Program. The group is planning on holding a kick-off event next semester, Lynch said. She added that the kick-off would likely be a barbecue or a mini-dance marathon. “We’re going to create awareness in the spring semester, so that in the fall, people are going to know what it is, and people are going to be ready for it, so we can get started right away,” Custer said. The group has started negotiations with greek organizations on campus, as it hopes to get them involved with fundraising and participating in the dance, Solano said. Custer added that participating in OttoTHON is a “win-win.” Said Custer: “You are going to have fun at the dance marathon event, and you are going to feel good because you raised money to save children’s lives.”

high school, Lynch said she spent the summer working with the local hospital to bring a Dance Marathon event to Syracuse. Lynch, a freshman broadcast and digital journalism and political science major, said participants must raise a minimum of $50 in order to attend the event. She said she also hopes to bring children from the hospital to the event. The OttoTHON will feature a DJ, live entertainment, games and other activities, said Jacob Custer, the event’s director of external relations. “It’s going to be 12 hours of fun,” said Custer, a freshman public relations major. Lynch said that Dance Marathon events are held across the country. The first event was held in 1991 and dances are now held at more than 150 participating schools, according to the Dance Marathon website. Meagan Solano, the event’s internal director, said she felt it would be a missed opportunity if SU did not participate. “Other colleges have raised millions of dollars, and I just feel like Syracuse has been missing out,” Solano said. Custer said the event is still in the early stages of planning. Solano, who is a freshman magazine journalism major, added the group is currently working on finalizing its executive board, and has been holding interest meetings

Former senator to speak on aftermath of Pan Am Flight 103 bombing By Charlie Mastoloni Staff Writer

Former U.S. Sen. George Mitchell will come to Syracuse University on Tuesday to discuss how the world has changed — and if it has — since the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing that took the lives of 35 SU students. Mitchell, who helped Where: Hendricks Chapel found the When: Tuesday, 5:30 p.m. How much: Free nonprofit Bipar tisan Policy Center, has also served as Senate majority leader and as a special envoy for the Obama and Clinton administrations in the past. He addressed the Sept. 11 attacks at SU’s first University Lecture less than a month

after they happened. The bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 on Dec. 21, 1988, killed all 259 people on board, including 35 SU students returning for Winter Break after studying abroad, and 11 people on the ground when the plane went down over Lockerbie, Scotland. Esther Gray, coordinator of University Lectures, said in an email she hopes students, faculty and community members will attend the speech despite the 7:30 p.m. men’s basketball game. “He is someone everyone knows and respects and wants to hear because he is grounded in truth,” she said. Gray added that Doug Biklen, dean of the School of Education, will introduce Mitchell before turning the podium to an informal dis-

cussion between the former senator and James Steinberg, dean of Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and the former deputy secretary of state to Hillary Clinton. Judy O’Rourke, the director of undergraduate studies who helps organize Remembrance Week, described in an email how the Pan Am bombing changed Syracuse. “We are more involved in the ‘world,’” she said. “Clearly SU has a long history of study abroad and community engagement, but after Pan Am and again after 9/11, that commitment to be more than just an ‘ivory tower’ was reinforced, clearly articulated, and taken to heart by our students, staff, faculty and alumni.” Joan Deppa, an associate professor of magazine, newspaper and online journalism who has written a book about Pan Am Flight 103 and the

media, said the bombing refocused university attention on students. “It’s not that we didn’t look at students before, but when you get to know students and invest in trying to help them build their lives, to lose 35 of them, a truly awful thing, it was a shift I think in the positive in focusing on those students,” she said. Deppa added that Pan Am Flight 103 had worldwide implications, including creating a relationship between Lockerbie and Syracuse. “I experienced this relationship first hand when I went there to write my book,” she said. “What mattered to them was I was from Syracuse, and it made me essentially family. When students from Syracuse go to Lockerbie, they are welcomed as family.” cpmastol@syr.edu

He added that the store’s menu could expand in the future to offer breakfast options. “It will be a focus on getting people in and out as fast as possible,” Coon said. “It’s very busy in that location for lunch and stuff with the hospital and SU being very close.” The cafe will occupy the space formerly owned by Syra-Juice Juice Bar & Eatery. In June, Syra-Juice was seized by New York state for not paying almost $3,000 in sales tax. SyraJuice owner Leah Davis paid the taxes and said she planned to reopen the store shortly after. Coons said the store was closed a few months ago.

Approximately 50 photos came out well, she said, as the f lash wasn’t engaged on the cameras before placing them out for the day. Regardless of the results, Ouikahilo said students expressed themselves and got into capturing moments in familiar places. “It was just a fun little way to spread a little joy,” Ouikahilo said. “We felt really good about it in the end.” The Living SU team meets weekly to plan events like Collective Perspectives, thinking strategically and creatively to embody the SU experience, Ouikahilo said. As a staff member, she works to support the group’s “ultimate vision” by helping to make their ideas come to life. Menna, Akinboyewa and other Living SU members intern for Ouikahilo in the Division of Student Affairs, working on social media posts and writing for the blog. The Collective Perspectives event most likely will not be repeated during the current school year, but Akinboyewa said the Living SU team is busy planning ahead for its next activities. Said Akinboyewa: “We do always have something in the works. The Living SU team is always planning something.”

Kweli deferred his choruses to prerecorded vocals blasting from the PA system, refused point blank to rap about weed (“This is a family show, this is a private college,” he said) and covered the Beatles’ staple “Eleanor Rigby” midway through his set. But some crowd members still found that wanting to dance along anyway was, well, the best reason to keep on dancing. “I didn’t know who that was,” Lilikas said, “But we just wanted to dance, and we did.” After the crowd awaited the headliner with an anticipatory hush between sets, Macklemore came onstage and flaunted a Syracuse basketball jersey emblazoned with his name, and the audience proved they didn’t need music to dance. Macklemore pointed out an errant crowd surfer also sporting a basketball jersey. “We have just elected a new student body president here in Syracuse, and it is that guy right there,” Macklemore said jokingly. With his longtime music-making partner Ryan Lewis spinning beats and rallying the crowd from up high, elevated from the rest of the stage, Macklemore wove between regaling larger-than-life stories and rapping hits at breakneck speeds. While the rapper rambled through fictitious yarns as prologues to some of his biggest hits — his introduction to “Thrift Shop” was a meandering throwaway joke involving skinny-dipping in Onondaga Lake and putting on his iconic fur coat — Macklemore didn’t shy away from including more socially conscious songs in his set. “I’m surprised they got Macklemore,” said Rachel Heyman, a sophomore music education major. “He’s more alternative than what they’d usually bring.” Preaching the importance of forward thinking and bringing noticeably emotional singer Mary Lambert to sing the song’s hook, Macklemore got the audience swaying tenderly to “Same Love.” He tugged at heartstrings again later in the set, spotlighting his string section on “Wing$.” And they cried. Well, maybe the

waterworks weren’t actually visible, but the sentiment sweeping from the stage was palpable. But Macklemore played most of his set for laughs. He made a quick costume change into a matador’s suit of lights, mirroring his music video for “White Walls.” He bluffed a story about being best friends with Leonardo DiCaprio and Snoop Dogg in a convoluted lead-up to the smash hit “Can’t Hold Us.” The rapper beatboxed his way through a freestyle, only after making the audience promise to keep

Under the guise of his faux-British moniker, an outlandish Ziggy Stardust wig and a fur-tufted rainbow of a cape he wore over his jersey, Macklemore unleashed his persona in a glitter-spangled rendition of “And We Danced.” The crowd danced along in a flurry of streamers and glitter, shot out from cannons. Again departing from the stage — this time for a much-needed switch from his Bowie getup to a navy blue No. 44 football jersey — Macklemore returned in brilliant orange and green for a second encore, “Irish Cel-

tattoo tuesday By Naomi Falk Staff Writer

When Malcolm Whitfield decided to get a tattoo, he knew he needed to get it with his twin brother Mike. The two spent 18 inseparable years together growing up in Rochester. When it came to choosing colleges, they ended up living in different states. Malcolm came to Syracuse University, while Mike went to George Washington University. Before they left for college, during their senior year of high school, they went to great lengths to show their parents the importance of getting matching tattoos. They created a convincing presentation, complete with a PowerPoint. “We aren’t sentimental people or anything, but we wanted something to symbolize the last 18 years,” said Whitfield, a junior art photography major. Of course, after a while, their parents caved and gave them the green light to get inked. The two brothers grew up with a comic book obsession: They collected memorabilia, knew all the characters and joined Facebook groups dedicated to comic books. Thus, they got the X-Men logo with the motto “mutatis mutandis” circling it. The Latin phrase translates to “that which is necessary to be changed, will be changed.” “It sucks that we both went off to different colleges, but I had to experience change in order to grow,” Whitfield said. The tattoo parlor where he got the piece done is one of the most respected in Roches-

ter: Love Hate Tattoo. Whitfield’s uncle, a cop, referred him to the place, which has a good reputation for its cleanliness and precision. And the artist of the tattoos, Adrien Moses Clark, was voted one of the best tattoo artists in Rochester this past year. The session took about an hour and a half. Whitfield explained that the pain he felt when getting the tattoo was mostly due to part of the tattoo needing to be completely filled in with black ink. Each little prick of the needle became painful after a while, he said. He laughed as he remembered walking into the parlor. “I felt like such a noob,” he said. “My parents had to pay for it and stuff. All of these people have a bunch of tattoos all over and I’m just like, ‘I’d like one on my arm, please.’” Whitfield has quite an extensive list of tattoos he would like to get in the future, but he

wants to wait until he can fund them himself, and until he feels he deserves them. A few among the list include a badge from “Star Trek,” a piece from “The Iron Giant,” a blues

guitar and the Ananse phrase for “creativity.” While he wants more ink, he said during the past few years that his current tattoo’s meaning has continued to evolve as his brother serves in the Air Force.

Said Whitfield: “My brother is stationed in Florida right now. I feel like I am attached to my tattoo even more now than ever before because of that.” ncfalk@syr.edu

STAFF WRITER

e’s back, and in true Eminem style, he’s going “Berzerk.” Eminem’s eighth studio album, “The Marshall Mathers LP 2,” is peppered with his typical brutally honest, vulgar and ingenious songs. The album is already making a buzz in the rap world and should have continued success in the future. Perhaps no song exposes his psyche better than the first of the album, “Bad Guy.” It is a sequel to the 2000 song, “Stan,” in which Eminem taps into his alter ego, Slim Shady. “Stan” chronicles the musings of an obsessed fan who tries to contact Slim to no avail. In the end, Stan drives off a bridge with his pregnant girlfriend bound and gagged in the trunk. “Bad Guy” is just as brilliant for its vivid storytelling and powerful delivery. This time around, the tables are turned. Stan’s little

brother Matthew is seeking revenge against Slim Shady, who is eventually forced into the trunk of a car as Matthew drives off of a bridge. The last verse of the song is the most haunting. Eminem, as Matthew, in his digitally altered voice sends chills down my spine: “I also represent anyone on the receiving end of those jokes you invent, I’m the nightmare you fell asleep in and woke up still in, I’m your karma closing in with each stroke of a pen, perfect time to have some remorse to show for your sin.” Another track from the album, “Rhyme or Reason,” is dedicated to Eminem’s father, a man he never knew. The song is deeply personal. In it, he says “So yeah Dad, let’s walk, let’s have us a father and son talk, but I bet we wouldn’t probably get one block without me knocking your block off.” This track samples The Zombies’ 1968 song, “Time of the Season,” and when they ask, “… Who’s your daddy?” in the chorus, Eminem bitterly

Eminem releases brutally honest 8th studio album

retorts, “I don’t have one.” “So Much Better” is a classic Eminem song — controversial and almost uncomfortable to listen to. Besides the gratuitous use of the “B” word, Eminem raps about how much he can’t stand his current love interest. He never refers to the woman by name, but is so upset by the relationship that he’d prefer it if she were dead. He even complains about her promiscuity in the industry, noting that he found out she slept with Dre, Drake and Lupe. At first listen I was thinking — and hoping — this was a metaphor for rap music, similar to how in “I Used to Love H.E.R.,” Common famously critiqued the genre through lyrics that initially hinted at an unfaithful woman. But unfortunately, there’s no evidence that “So Much Better” is a metaphor for anything. It has a few jokes and funny lines here and there, but overall it’s slightly disappointing. One of the best songs on the album is “The

Monster,” which features a new collaboration with Rihanna. About the downfalls of being a public figure, “The Monster” offers insight into Eminem’s thought process about desiring fame and still wanting to maintain his privacy. Rihanna sings she is friends with the monster, symbolizing Eminem’s love for success and the good and bad that come with it. His most memorable verse is at the very beginning, in which he says, “I wanted the fame, but not the cover of Newsweek. Oh well, guess beggars can’t be choosey. Wanted to receive attention for my music. Wanted to be left alone in public, excuse me.” What makes Eminem such a great artist is his vulnerability on the album. He’s a walking contradiction. Despite the front he puts on — like many rappers — he still unashamedly talks about things that bother him the most, not caring who he offends. ekcrocke@syr.edu

Students should take advantage of local events, integrate into new culture

O

ne of my teachers recently said something that surprised me: Before 9/11, abroad students were eager to integrate into Italian life completely. But after it happened, she saw them become more withdrawn and less willing to lose themselves in the culture. Her prime example was how travel habits during Fall Break have changed. Before, students would do all of the traveling on their own. Now, a convenient service called Bus2alps takes care of travel, hostels, tours, etc. This ultimately limits how much each person needs to directly interact with the places they’re visiting. I found this especially surprising given how prominently it applies to me. Half of my trips have been arranged through Bus2alps — including my Fall Break — and the other half are organized through the school. So, I asked myself: Do I have this same fear of integration? When I first heard my teacher’s claim, my mind threw all kinds of arguments back at her. I preferred others to arrange my travel since I often get lost when I handle it myself.

MA X ANTONUCCI

lost and found in florence Others know more about the places I’m visiting, so I trust them to know what to see. Services like Bus2alps simplify everything, sparing me hours of stress and planning. The idea of me being afraid to integrate was ridiculous. But after some honest selfreflection, I realized, at least on some level, she was right. My first worry about going abroad was being robbed anywhere and by anyone, not just by people targeting tourist areas. I assumed somewhere other than America was less safe, even though I now know that to be the opposite in some cases. In my first month here, I felt almost terri-

fied to speak Italian to someone who might not know English. I worried I might make a mistake and unintentionally offend someone. Through time, naturally, this delusion grew smaller. Now talking to native speakers feels almost completely natural. All of these fears were much more subtle than I expected, but they were there, and my teacher was right. However, looking closer, I also think she was partially wrong because the worries didn’t last. These fears were shattered after experiencing enough of Italy. And they’re likely to never resurface. The fears first dissipated at an event organized through the school called the Dragon Boat Race. My classmates and I spent two nights practicing rowing with a team of Italian doctors, and then competed with them in several races that Saturday. We were the only English-speakers there, yet were fully a part of the action and integrated into the celebration. Looking back, it’s been my favorite activity during my entire time abroad. It was different because it wasn’t any kind

of tourist activity. There were no means to distance ourselves from the culture, and we were forced into its foreign aspects. It was a real event for real Italians, and I was part of it. It’s what broke down the barrier between cultures. I can’t know for sure how many other abroad students feel the same way, but I know there are some with the same misplaced fears. There is something more we can do about it, though. Not taking part in more events like this will likely be my biggest regret while in Florence, and hopefully future students can avoid this. People should take advantage of events like the boat race, where we experience Italy with the Italians instead of keeping a slight distance from them. It’s not just for better experiences, but also to make us better people by getting rid of these subtle fears of the unfamiliar. Max Antonucci is a junior newspaper and online journalism major.

Drama department to premiere ‘Translations’ on Friday By Kristin Ross FEATURE EDITOR

Playwrights often draw inspiration from their own lives to make their work relatable to an audience, and Brian Friel’s “Translations” is no different. Friel drew from political differences and language barriers

“Translations”

Where: Syracuse Stage/SU Drama Theater Complex, 820 E. Genesee St. When: Friday, Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21 at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 at 2 p.m., 8 p.m. How much: $17-$19

in Northern Ireland in the 1980s when he published the script. Although the playwright has previously said that the play is “a play about language and only about language,” the messages drawn from the script are much stronger. Set in Ireland in 1833, “Translations” poses relevant questions about understanding other cultures and differing views on politics, according to the College of Visual and Performing Arts’ website. But arguably more importantly, the play discusses the need to preserve culture in a constantly changing world. Presented by the Department of Drama, “Translations” opens on Friday and will run through Nov. 23. It is staged in the Arthur Storch Theater at the Syracuse Stage/SU Drama Theater Complex, 820 E. Genesee St., and tickets are available at the theater’s box office. The show begins when a group of Irish students are greeted by two members of the British Army, which is quickly followed by cultural misunderstandings and misinterpretations due to the evident language barrier. The British Army is in Ireland because its members have been asked to map out and rename places from the traditional Gaelic

names to the King’s English. The remainder of the show discusses the problems that arise from the obvious language barrier, and a division between cultures and class is evident. The conflict that resounds from the two groups’ cultural differences creates a timeless situation, therefore making “Translations” still relevant to today’s audiences, despite being authored more than three decades ago. The Department of Drama’s students are performing “Translations” in its original Gaelic and British accents, and have been working on them since the first rehearsal under the direction of Gerardine Clark, a professor of drama in VPA. “Translations” was first performed in

QUARTERBACKS FROM PAGE 20

Long has ambitions to leapfrog Terrel Hunt, Mitch Kimble and Austin Wilson, and start for the Orange as a freshman next fall. “If I do all that I need to do, I can’t see myself not starting next year,” Long said. But he won’t be the only first-year quarterback trying to do so. On Oct. 20, three-star recruit Alin Edouard joined Long as the second quarterback to verbally commit to the Orange for 2014 after de-committing from Miami (Fla.) on Sept. 1. While the two incoming freshmen sit behind Hunt, Kimble and Wilson on the Orange’s preconceived 2014 depth chart, they’re ready to challenge anyone, including each other, for the starting spot. “Competition is everything,” Edouard said. “Everywhere you go there is going to be competition so I’m excited for it, and I’m going to do what I got to do.” For more than seven months, Long was the only quarterback heading to Syracuse in 2014. Long verbally committed last March while Edouard, a Miami native, was in heavy talks with Miami and considering offers from Penn State, Tennessee and Nebraska, among other schools. But after committing then wavering throughout the summer, Edouard de-committed from the Hurricanes because he didn’t feel like one of Miami’s top priorities and “had never heard of a recruiting class with three quarterbacks.” Seven weeks later, he opted to give Syracuse a recruiting class with two. “Syracuse was one school that offered me and stuck with me and tried to draw me away from Miami,” Edouard said. “I was comfortable and Coach (George) McDonald has been

with me since day one, so that made my decision easy.” Now the Orange is going to welcome two signal callers that hardly differ. Long and Edouard are both dual-threat quarterbacks with scrambling ability, strong arms and a high football IQ. Long is 6 feet 2 inches tall and 190 pounds. Edouard is 6 feet 2 inches tall and 181 pounds. And they each see getting stronger as the next step of their development. “I think skill wise everything is in place,” Long said. “I know Coach (Will) Hicks turns boys into men in the weight room, and I need that when I get to Syracuse.” Said Edouard: “I just need to get in the weight room and get bigger, that’s my main concern right now.” Both quarterbacks are confident they could start for the Orange right away, but will each need to make a critical decision before even stepping on the practice field. Long wears No. 3. It’s the number his father wore in the Marine Corps, but also the number Kimble wears. So he plans to switch to No. 4 because of “the legend of 44 in Syracuse.” Edouard has the same problem. He has worn No. 10 his whole life, but that’s Hunt’s number. After saying he hopes Hunt will give it up through uncontrollable laughter, Edouard listed Nos. 6, 11 and 4 as other options. As part of the bigger picture, Long and Edouard are already eyeing the same number. Once they sort that out, the real competition will begin. “I haven’t seen much film but they’re both extremely talented quarterbacks,” said Rodney Williams, a safety committed to SU for 2014. “They’re going to bring out the best in each other.” jcdoug01@syr.edu @dougherty_ jesse

the same for Ennis. “You know, he’s a freshman,” Boeheim said. The freshman point guard will get his next crack at collegiate competition when No. 9 Syracuse (1-0) plays host to Fordham (1-0) on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome. Boeheim insists Ennis still has room to grow, but he had a “solid game” within his element against Cornell.

point of emphasis

Freshman guard Tyler Ennis struggled from the field in the season opener against Cornell, but shot the ball well in the preseason.

Megill: 4-of-9, 11 points, 24 mins Bishops: 4-of-4, 9 points, 17 mins Carleton: 4-of-17, 15 points, 44 mins Ottawa: 2-of-5, 5 points, 24 mins Holy Family: 4-of-7, 12 points, 18 mins Ryerson: 3-of-5, 7 points, 24 mins Cornell: 0-of-6, 1 point, 28 mins

He made smart passes, took intelligent shots and snagged rebounds, just like Boeheim expected him to. “Is he Michael Carter-Williams?” Boeheim asked rhetorically and then chuckled. “No, not many are.” Ennis’ first collegiate shot came just twoplus minutes into the game. He stepped back and pulled up for a 3 and the ball bounced off the rim and out. Less than a minute later he tried to find C.J. Fair but threw an ill-advised pass to Fair’s back shoulder that skirted out of bounds. He missed four more jump shots in the first half, and Boeheim said he thinks Cornell left him those shots. “He had to take them,” Boeheim said, “and I just don’t think he’s taken enough shots in practice or in games.” Ennis shot a cumulative 56.6 percent in five of Syracuse’s six exhibition games, but he strug-

“You know, he’s a freshman. I think people confuse what I say sometimes when I say, ‘Well, I don’t have to talk to him.’ Because I don’t – he doesn’t make many mistakes. Is he Michael Carter-Williams? No, not many are.” Jim Boeheim

SU head coach

gled in Canada against Carleton University, who may have been the best team the Orange faced in the preseason. He finished 4-of-17 from the field in that game, which dipped his overall preseason percentage below 45. And against Cornell, his sole point came from the free throw line. Early in the second half, he missed an open Trevor Cooney on his left. Ennis looked like he was rearing to shoot, but he shuffled his feet instead. “I thought I had a slow game offensively, scoring the ball,” Ennis said. “I just tried to do some other things.” What Ennis didn’t do from a scoring standpoint, he made up for with his on-

ball defense, precision passing and savvy rebounding ability. Ennis looked extremely comfortable undertaking the role of floor general. It’s something he’s done his whole life and a role in which he thrives. Against Cornell he played calmly and without apprehension. Midway through the half, he found a slashing B.J. Johnson on the baseline for a contested layup. The bucket gave Syracuse its last lead of the first half, as the Big Red built a six-point cushion heading into the break. In the second half, less than two minutes after he missed Cooney to his left, Ennis found the sharpshooter. Cooney coolly canned a 3 and Syracuse reclaimed the lead. His final three assists came with the game out of reach to fellow freshmen Ron Patterson, Tyler Roberson and Johnson. Ennis didn’t do anything spectacular in his debut, but it was only one game. He and Michael Gbinije both proved they’re capable of finding their teammates. The “wow” factor wasn’t there, but the steady presence Boeheim talks about was. He said at the start of the year he expects Ennis to play more than 30 minutes per game, and his main purpose — for now, at least — is to distribute, not necessarily to score. “Tyler and Mike did a good job,” Syracuse forward Rakeem Christmas said. “They’re doing what point guards do, which is look for the team.” tbhass@syr.edu

Syracuse ends rocky 1st ACC year with optimistic outlook By Connor Grossman STAFF WRITER

Missed opportunities and tightly contested losses to the best teams in the country were the themes of Syracuse’s inaugural season in the Atlantic Coast Conference. “It wasn’t that we didn’t create opportunities,” head coach Phil Wheddon said. “It was just the final product.” Syracuse (7-11-1, 3-9-1 ACC) finished the season 12th in the ACC out of 14 teams, ahead of North Carolina State and Pittsburgh, that went winless in the conference. The Orange missed the cutoff of the top eight teams in the conference that qualify for the ACC tournament. SU was well aware of the steep competition it would be facing after exiting the Big East last season and heading into a conference that features four of the top six programs in the nation. Transition was a big part of the year for the Orange, which had to studiously utilize game footage to pick up on tendencies and strategies from opponents that it had never played before. “Everything is stronger, bigger and faster in the ACC,” forward Erin Simon said. “I had to up my level of play to compete” Offensive production was clearly the paramount issue for Syracuse. Ranking second-tolast in the ACC in shots taken with 165, SU’s offensive efforts were often met with either a stronger defense or a turnover. The Orange scored 13 goals against ACC competition, but was also shut out a whopping seven times. The Syracuse offense looked punchless at times and the coaches worked all season long to adjust strategy, but struggled to find a groove. “It was a seasonlong struggle for us to put the ball in the back of the net,” midfielder Jackie Firenze said. “We had to finish the couple opportunities that we got in each game and we could only do that for a few games.” While scoring chances were limited all season, the Orange consistently rolled out one of

the strongest, most venerable defenses in the ultra-competitive conference. SU went wire-to-wire with the best teams in the country, suffering 1-0 losses to top 10, nationally ranked Notre Dame, Wake Forest, Florida State and North Carolina. Syracuse allowed an average of 1.27 goals per game. “To have one-goal and overtime games against the best teams in the country consistently,” said Wheddon, “I think is a testament to how organized the team was and how much they bought into our game plan.” The strongest facet of Syracuse’s defense came in the presence of seniors Rachel Blum and Kayla Afonso, who have anchored the SU defense since they first set foot on the field back in 2010. Blum started every game for Syracuse in her collegiate career and Afonso has been a mainstay in the counterattack for several seasons, as well. “The seniors are going to be greatly missed,” Simon said. “They were very key players in our defense. “Rachel was our vocal leader, Kayla was the attacking threat. She was the girl in the back everyone was kind of scared of.” The backbone of the Orange’s defense came in the form of the second-most successful goalie in terms of saves in the history of the program — Brittany Anghel. Anghel recorded 78 saves on the season, the second most in the conference. In the final game against Boston College, she netted her final six saves in a Syracuse uniform to give her 303 in her career, second-most in program history behind Eliza Bennett-Hattan. As seniors Jackie Moriarty, Cecilia Borgstrom, Blum, Afonso and Anghel depart, all sights are now set on spring conditioning and moving closer to kickoff 2014. The players had a sense of optimism, but Wheddon was clear and adamant when asked about his goals going into next season. “ACC Tournament.” cgrossma@syr.edu

FIELD HOCKEY

Brooks regains scoring touch as Orange prepares for NCAAs By Tyler Piccotti STAFF WRITER

At times, junior forward and team captain Lauren Brooks seems to find the back of the cage with ease. She leads No. 2 Syracuse (16-3, 4-2 Atlantic Coast) with 13 goals, and that comes as no surprise to her teammates. “On the pitch, you can tell how good she is,” forward Emma Russell said. “She gets the goals that are like ridiculous angles, and she just always seems to find a way to finish it.” However, Brooks has a much simpler explanation for her offensive success. “Those low-angle goals? They’re just pretty lucky I guess,” she said with a laugh. Lucky or not, there’s no debating that Brooks has been an offensive catalyst for the Orange in recent weeks. After scoring against Boston College during the first round of the ACC tournament on Thursday, Brooks has four goals in her last five games. Now, as the Orange prepares to host its firstround NCAA tournament game on Saturday against either Miami (Ohio) or Michigan State, Brooks believes that she and the entire team are getting hot when it matters most. “We’re all meshing together really well,” she said. “I think a lot of other teams have already hit their peak, and we’re just peaking at the right time.” Brooks began the season by tallying seven goals during SU’s first five games — all victories. Included in that stretch was a hat trick against Kent State on Sept. 8.

Then Brooks lost her scoring touch once conference play began. She found the back of the net only twice in the next nine games, and the Orange lost its first two games of the season during that span. “Playing in the ACC was really tough, having tough competition every week,” Brooks said. “The Big East wasn’t as competitive.” But as any captain should, Brooks learned from those struggles and improved her on-field communication. She was rewarded with her latest goal-scoring binge, and SU finished the regular season strong. And now that the Orange received the No. 2 overall seed in the NCAA tournament, what happened during that middle part of the season is a moot point. Head coach Ange Bradley said Brooks and the other upperclassmen have implored everyone to only focus on the present. “That’s a really important message for our captains to deliver to the team, that this is a new season,” Bradley said. “We’re 0-0. There’s no past, and there’s no future. There’s only today.” Still, one can’t overlook the way that Brooks has mentored some of the young players on the team. Russell said that her teammate has a knack for helping freshmen make the transition from raw talent to weekly contributor. “Last year, she helped me a huge amount in my first year here,” Russell said. “This year, she’s done really well helping Karlee (Farr), so in that way she’s been really good.” As a result, Brooks and the team are more

confident than they’ve been at any point during the season, and the fact that she has regained her offensive pop is a sign that luck may finally be on the Orange’s side in tournament play. “Since we were a young team, we had so

much potential that we’ve really just been growing the entire way,” Brooks said. “We’ve been preparing all year, playing the best teams, and I think we really have a shot.” tfpiccot@syr.edu

im Boeheim said he has to be more specific because members of the media often confuse what he means. “It’s kind of like retirement,” Boeheim jested.

When he said he didn’t need to talk to freshman point guard Tyler Ennis, he didn’t mean Ennis was so good he didn’t need to be coached. Rather, he meant Ennis doesn’t make too many mistakes. Brilliance from Ennis came in flashes in Syracuse’s season-open-

When A.J. Long was in eighth grade, his dad put four numbers on the wall in their basement, each a statistical goal for his son.

9,853 passing yards — the Pennsylvania state passing record at the time. 100 passing touchdowns. 2,000 rushing yards. 40 rushing touchdowns. Although the sheets on the wall

didn’t travel with Long to Tennessee, where he is finishing his high school career at Friendship Christian School, he’s surpassed each mark. More than 10,000 passing yards.

Syracuse guard Trevor Cooney was named Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week on Monday after his career-best 27-point performance against Cornell on Friday. Cooney shot 7-of-8 from 3-point range to spur the Orange back from COONEY a 14-point firsthalf deficit to an 82-60 win over the Big Red. “He bailed us out when we really needed him in the first half, when we really had nothing,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said after the game. Cooney added a team-high four steals, including one that resulted in an emphatic two-handed dunk, in 28 minutes.
