String of burglaries hits South Campus
South Koreans at SU unshaken by latest attack By Andrew Swab
By Michael Boren
Joseph Juhn’s parents remained calm when North Korea bombed an island 60 miles off the coast of South Korea, even though they live in South Korea’s capital, Seoul. When Juhn called them, they said they felt safe. “I consider North Korea as a troubled kid, a next-door neighbor,” said Juhn, a second-year law student who was raised in South Korea. “Typically when these things happen, people outside of Korea tend to freak out more.” After the Nov. 23 attacks on Yeonpyeong Island, which killed two South Korean soldiers and wounded 15 soldiers and three civilians, U.S. media depicted a tense East Asia. But Syracuse University students who hail from South Korea said they are not worried about the escalating situation overseas and think the media overreacted. SU has 334 international students from South Korea, according to the November census update from the Lillian and Emanuel Slutzker Center for International Services. This places South Korea as the third largest home country for international students at SU after China and India. To Jay Lee, the faculty adviser for Korean Students in America at SU, the news of the attack was concerning but not too worrisome, he said. “North Korea has behaved like this many times in the past,” he said in an e-mail.

The same individuals may be responsible for four burglaries to South Campus apartments during Thanksgiving break when students were not at home, said Department of Public Safety Asst. Chief Mike Rathbun. Apartments on 151 Winding Ridge Road, 121 Small Road and 520 Slocum Drive were burglarized between Nov. 23 and Sunday, as well as 220 Winding Ridge Road between Nov. 21 and Sunday, according to DPS crime records. The burglars forcibly opened one of the apartment’s front doors, but the other three apartments were not forcibly entered, Rathbun said. The residents of the apartments said they secured their

Students mourn tragic death of Liverpool woman By Dara McBride Asst. News Editor
Back in high school, Jenni-Lyn Watson was known as a genuine person who was easy to talk to. “She had a warming personality to be around,” said Ian Smith, who graduated with Watson from Liverpool High School in 2008 and is now a senior television, radio and film and political science major at Syracuse University.

Smith would see Watson in the hallways and say hello. He also knew Steven Pieper, who was in their graduating class and started dating Watson post-graduation. Pieper had a friendly personality, and the two would talk about sports sometimes, watson Smith said.
“He was a guy’s guy,” Smith said. So it was a shock for Smith and others in the Liverpool area to hear over Thanksgiving break that Watson, 20, had gone missing Nov. 19. Watson’s body was discovered Saturday in Clay Central Park. Police arrested Watson’s ex-boyfriend Pieper, 21, Saturday afternoon on a charge of second-degree murder. Law enforcement officials and

He did not provide the total cost of the stolen items. “It was a significant loss if you look at the total,” he said. Police patrolling South Campus discovered 151 Winding Ridge Road Apartment 6 with its door forcibly opened, according to the Syracuse police report. Police entered the apartment and saw mud tracks on the floor and the apartment in “disarray,” according to report. The two Syracuse University men who lived in the apartment confirmed to police that three TVs were taken from the apartment with a combined value of $1,400, accordsee burglaries page 11
TCU joins Big East; Gross, SU coaches praise addition By Brett LoGiurato Asst. Sports Editor
Texas Christian accepted an offer Monday to become an all-sport member of the Big East conference. The school is the 17th member of the conference and will be its ninth school participating in football. The membership will become official on July 1, 2012, and TCU will begin play in the Big East in the 2012-13 academic year. “It is a great scenario for us,” TCU football head coach Gary Patterson said in a press conference Monday. The move is one that will greatly benefit the conference’s slumping state as a football conference. The Horned Frogs are 12-0 and currently ranked No. 3 in the Associated Press poll and BCS standings. A loss by either Auburn or Oregon this weekend could vault them to the BCS title game. Overall, TCU has won 25 con-
secutive regular-season contests. For the Big East, TCU adds a budding powerhouse in football and increases the conference’s exposure to a large market in Texas. TCU also brings the fifth-largest national

Oklahoma Shariah law ban blocked
A federal judge blocked Oklahoma from using a state constitutional amendment aimed at stopping the use of Islamic law in its courts on Monday, according to The New York Times. The amendment would stop Oklahoma state judges from considering Islamic law in their decisions. The amendment is known as State Question 755 and passed with 70 percent of the vote during the switch to a Republican majority on Nov. 2. Since Election Day, the amendment has produced much debate in Oklahoma. Muslims say the state is discriminating against their religion, but supporters of the amendment claim the legislation is needed to stop what they think is an effort by radical Muslims to bring Shariah law to the United States. Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange of Federal District Court in Oklahoma City said in her decision that the amendment conveys a message that the state favors one religion over another. She added that the federal courts have consistently held that such a message violates the First Amendment’s clause prohibiting the establishment of a state religion, according to The New York Times.

President to act as liaison to trustees
• A second-year law student in the Syracuse University College of Law reported a burglary in progress early Friday morning, according to the Syracuse police report. At 12:10 a.m. Syracuse police responded to a call from Shayne Machen at her apartment at 124 Newbury Hollow Lane. Machen told police she was in her bedroom when she heard someone in her living room. Machen hid in a different room with the door locked while she called police, according to the police report. When the police arrived, the suspect was gone and nothing was missing from the apartment, according to the report. Machen told police her door was unlocked when she heard the unknown person enter her apartment, according to the report. • Syracuse police arrested a man at Daisy Dukes for assaulting one of the bouncers, according to the police report. The assaulted bouncer, Peter Spielman, told police he saw Jack Geiser, 23, of Syracuse and his girlfriend get into an argument with several staff members, according to the report. After being escorted out, Geiser returned, picked up a chair and hit Spielman in the face, drawing blood, according to the report. Police charged Geiser with third-degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon, according to the report.

Student Association voted to stack another responsibility onto the job description of SA president Monday night, making the president an undergraduate liaison to Syracuse University’s Board of Trustees, the university’s top decision-making power. Neal Casey, currently the chair of the Student Life Committee, will be the first president to absorb the position automatically and for the entire presidential term when he takes office in January. SA members debated for nearly 20 minutes before adding the responsibility. President Jon Barnhart said the president represents the student body at every other level of the university and that this is “the next step.” The president is currently guaranteed a position on the University Senate and each of SA’s committees. Until Monday night, any undergraduate student could vie for one of the two positions as liaison to the Board of Trustees. The liaisons’ role is to report to the Board of Trustees’ executive board on the biggest issues facing undergraduate students and to report to SA on the university’s agenda. The liaison does not vote at the executive board’s meetings.

A professor in the L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science died Nov. 22 after a long battle with leukemia. Hiroshi Higuchi, a professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering, died at the age of 63, according to his obituary available on the Schepp Family Funeral Homes website. Higuchi came to Syracuse University as an associate professor in 1989, according to the L.C. Smith website. During his time at the university, he was instrumental in building a relationship between L.C. Smith and Tohoku University in Japan. He was also a leader in acquiring the college’s flight simulator, named Tango Foxtrot. At the time of his death, Higuchi had begun work with the University of Minnesota on improving the effi-

Republican Ann Marie Buerkle defeated U.S. Rep. Dan Maffei, D-DeWitt, by 561 votes Nov. 23 in the 25th Congressional District race three weeks after voters cast their ballots on Election Day. “The election is over, and we now have the answer to who is going to be our next congressman, and now we have to get to work, and that’s what will begin immediately,” Buerkle said in her victory speech. The unofficial vote as of Nov. 23 had Buerkle with 104,387 votes and Maffei with 103,826 votes, giving the Republican challenger a victory by less than three-tenths of 1 percent. Since Election Day, volunteers and lawyers of Maffei looked over the votes cast Nov. 2 and absentee ballots to try to find enough votes to be re-elected. At the end of their efforts,
Maffei conceded to Buerkle on Nov. 23 instead of asking a judge at a Nov. 24 court date to order the Onondaga County Board of Elections to handrecount more than 200,000 ballots. After freshman incumbent Maffei’s loss, Syracuse University and the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry will need to develop a new relationship with Congresswomanelect Buerkle. The 25th District followed the trend of anti-Democrat sentiment that set the tone for the 2010 midterm elections. Jeffrey Stonecash, a professor of political science at SU, said he was surprised Buerkle emerged victorious. “She had a reputation locally as being pretty conservative, and this is not a conservative district,” he said. “I just take it as an indication of just how much anger there
is about the economy, about the mandates in the health care bill, the frustration that government doesn’t seem to be able to help. I take it as what happened here was she just became the vehicle that rode the wave of the hostility.” With the victory, Buerkle, 59, becomes the first woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in the 25th District. She had previously run for public office unsuccessfully four times, including a run for Congress in 1988 before eventually dropping out. Buerkle served on the Syracuse Common Council in 1994 and took a break from her job as an assistant state attorney general to make her second run at the U.S. House in 2010. Although Buerkle won the district, which includes Onondaga and Wayne counties and parts of Monroe and Cayuga counties, she was never
favored. In a Syracuse Post-Standard/Siena College poll released two weeks before the election, Buerkle was shown trailing Maffei by 12 percentage points. On election night, Maffei held a lead of about 5,600 votes over Buerkle, according to preliminary poll results. But on Nov. 3, Wayne County reported its results, propelling Buerkle into the lead by 659 votes and causing the election to drag on for another three weeks so absentee ballots could be counted. With Buerkle’s win, the Republicans now have a net gain of 63 seats in the House. Her victory also made New York the state with the most House shakeups — six districts changed from Democrat to Republican in the 2010 midterms.

Newly-elected Buerkle’s environmental views ignorant, dangerous
nn Marie Buerkle’s win in the 25th Congressional District marked a sad day for sane representation of Syracuse in the House of Representatives, especially for those concerned about the environment. In a televised debate in October, Buerkle stated that “a lot of the global warming myth has been exposed.” Really? There’s actually no myth, just the factual basis for climate change theory and a slight level of skepticism as to the scale of the observable phenomenon. This is a dangerous delusion from which soon-to-be Rep. Buerkle is suffering. One she likely doesn’t even understand properly, asserting at another point in the campaign that “the jury is still out on global warming”. The jury is in, and guess who is guilty of having barely a child’s grasp of the science? You, Buerkle. Although climate scientists may have slight disagreements as to the exact consequences of climate change (differences such as whether we

should expect global temperatures to rise 2 or 5 degrees over the next century), there is no “global warming myth.” She’s either ignorant of the science — to which I am fully willing to offer her my copy of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s findings on climate change — or actively denying the obvious, which makes her unfit to serve elected office. Buerkle secured her spot on the loony bandwagon by saying leaked e-mails at the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit in 2009 among climate scientists somehow prove there is some conspiracy behind climate change. The e-mails uncover skepticism toward the long-term climate models and how they aren’t easily integrated with the short-term data, which show slight dips in global climate and ocean temperatures in the 1960s and 1970s. This is an interesting scientific debate, but it in no way contradicts the fundamental facts behind climate

give green a chance change. In fact, all the scientists have since been entirely cleared of scientific wrongdoing, a fact most antienvironmentalists refuse to accept. On her website, Buerkle offers her view on the issues of energy and the environment. I had hoped to find a shred of sanity, perhaps a reluctant admission that a healthy environment means a better society or that scientific consensus should be the main prerogative behind public policy. Sadly, what I saw was a jumble of misinformed Tea Party talking points that make me question

Buerkle’s grip on reality. She offers that “responsible stewardship of the nation’s resources and environment” is a worthwhile goal, to which I agree fully. But then she enters into a delusional rant against cap-and-trade legislation, falsely asserting it would “create a new national energy tax” and destroy jobs. Well, if you believe in proper ecological stewardship, how will you help enact that at the legislative level? She seems to offer no solutions whatsoever. At a time when we barely have a generation to seriously alter our greenhouse gas output or be forced to pump sulfuric acid into the stratosphere to delay what we have known for decades was coming, this is not the right person to have representing us. No doubt she will join in lockstep with the Republican majority in actively subverting ecological sanity, bringing our environment ever closer to the brink of total climate instability. We have only ourselves to blame.

The ignorant are only elected because concerned citizens have failed to act properly. I guarantee Syracuse University had enough liberal voters to have kept Dan Maffei in office, but they failed to turn out on Nov. 2. Barely 20 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds voted, which is a complete embarrassment for our generation. Hopefully, we don’t have to tell our grandchildren that the reason they have to deal with resource wars, millions of climate refugees and a completely altered environment that will affect every aspect of human society was because our generation was too lazy. But that gets more likely with every election we fail to elect sensible leaders. And for now we’re stuck with clueless anti-environmentalists like Buerkle.

Life Sciences’ atrium available for late-night quiet study during finals By Annie Knox Staff Writer
Students seeking study space outside the crowded confines of E.S. Bird Library during finals week will get the chance starting Dec. 11. Student Association has arranged to keep the atrium in the Life Sciences Complex open four hours later during the weekend before and during the week of exams, answering students’ call for more study space on campus. Under the extended hours, students can study for their finals until 2 a.m. in the atrium, which normally closes at 10 p.m. “During finals week, everyone is crammed in Bird,” said junior Bonnie Kong, a representative for the College of Arts and Sciences
and a member of SA’s Academic Affairs Committee. The atrium’s late-night availability will cater mainly to Arts and Sciences students who cannot use their IDs to swipe into other schools, such as the Martin J. Whitman School of Management, and would normally turn to Bird, she said. The atrium’s extended hours will run the length of the finals period, from Dec. 11 to Dec. 17 at 2 a.m. During the extended hours, the atrium will be designated as a quiet study area, Kong said. Currently, students can stay and study after the building closes if they are already inside, but the Department of Public Safety officers leave the area after 10 p.m. During the extended-hours week, DPS officers will stay to patrol the atrium and surrounding area as a safety measure for students and their belongings. SA began working for extended atrium hours during exam weeks in the spring after students complained that the university’s amount of study space does not measure up to the number of students who need it, especially during exams. If the plan goes smoothly this semester, Kong said SA will look to do the same during next semester’s finals. abknox@ syr.edu

some residents in the Liverpool area spent Thanksgiving break searching for Watson, home from her third year at Mercyhurst College in Pennsylvania, where she majored in dance. SU students who were classmates of Watson or had never met Watson became involved in the search, posting on Facebook and joining online groups dedicated to the search. SU’s Department of Public Safety posted missing-person fliers around campus and on the DPS website after friends of the Watson family asked the department to, said DPS Asst. Chief Mike Rathbun. He said Watson was known to frequent the East neighborhood. DPS has no plans to change security in light of the incident because someone the victim knew has been arrested as a suspect, Rathbun said. Due to the possibility the crime was committed by a romantic partner, Rathbun said he encourages students to come to DPS if they are dealing with a relationship problem that makes them feel unsafe. DPS is one outlet available to help students if they foresee a relationship problem, he said. Many first learned about Watson’s disappearance through Facebook. The Facebook group, “MISSING: Jenni-Lyn Watson,” had more than 26,000 members as of Sunday. Some Facebook members who knew Watson or were concerned with the search changed their profile pictures to images of Watson and, before her body was found, put up the image of Watson’s missing poster. Smith, the SU student who graduated with Watson, said he joined the Facebook group and was active in posting and keeping others updated about the case. “Even if I didn’t know her, it’s a close-knit community,” Smith said. “At the end of the day, we are all friendly with each other.” Smith plans to attend the calling hours on Tuesday, he said. He said he believes Pieper, like anyone else charged with a crime, is innocent until proven guilty, but he hoped justice would be served for Watson. Isaac Budmen, a junior policy studies and psychology major who graduated with Watson, first heard about Watson’s disappearance on Facebook, as well. He eventually had to take a break from using the social networking site last week because he said he was overwhelmed by the news. “I was thrown — thrown for a loop,” Budmen said about the news of Watson’s death. “I feel awful for her family, for her.” There was still a sense of hope in the community until Saturday morning, Budmen said. He said he likes to think the Watson family was at least comforted by the high school friends who were home for the Thanksgiving holiday and turned out for support. “There’s not a single person walking through Wegmans that hasn’t been affected,” he said. Nick Pickard, a sophomore English and textual studies and nutrition science major, heard people talking about Watson’s disappearance everywhere he went, he said. Pickard was staying with Budmen over the break. Pickard also saw search parties when he was driving through the area, he said. Pickard, from Washington state, does not have ties to the Liverpool area but said he could see the tight-knit community was distraught over the event. When it was announced Saturday that Watson’s body had been found, Pickard said the day was “very, very solemn.” “It was just quiet,” he said. The news of the violence in the Liverpool community was an eye-opener, said Maddie Horrell, who graduated with Watson and is now a sophomore music education major. “It was awful,” Horrell said. “There was one

of two ways that this could have gone, and it went the worst way.” The support from the Liverpool community and Facebook outlets was amazing, Horrell said. She did not know Watson well, but Horrell said she and Watson shared friends. “What I knew was that she was a wonderful person,” Horrell said. “I never heard anything bad about her.” For students still looking to reach out to the family, Watson family spokeswoman Kelly Kinahan said in e-mail that donations could be made to the Jenni-Lyn Watson Dance Scholarship Fund. Funeral services will be held Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. in St. Margaret’s Church. Calling hours at the Thomas J. Pirro Funeral Home will be held Tuesday from 3 to 7 p.m. email@example.com
Jenni-Lyn Watson Timeline Jenni-Lyn Watson, 20, of Liverpool was home on Thanksgiving break from her third year at Mercyhurst College in Pennsylvania when her family reported she had gone missing. Liverpool residents and local law enforcement spent the week following Watson’s disappearance searching the area.
Jenni-Lyn Watson is last seen in her home Friday morning and reported missing later that day.
Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office asks for help in locating Watson.
Local search and rescue teams and dogs search town of Clay, sheriff’s detectives continue to interview friends and family members.
Detectives attempt to identify a dark colored pickup truck seen near Watson’s home the morning of her disappearance, the second day of the search ends after covering nearly 600 acres of wooded area.
Sheriff’s detectives report continuing to follow leads.
Additional 30 search and rescue personnel join the search, teams cover over 1200 acres by the end of the fourth day.
A body is found that is later confirmed to be Watson’s in wooded area surrounding Clay Central Park, north of Wetzel Road, around 10:30 a.m., detectives arrest Steven Pieper in connection with the murder. Source: ongov.net

media market in Dallas/Fort Worth. “Our focus was to add a quality institution to our football membership,” Big East commissioner John Marinatto said in a press conference. “And clearly, the tremendously successful TCU football team adds enormous strength to the Big East roster. The opportunity to add a member such as TCU as a full member was an opportunity our presidents and chancellors simply could not pass up.” And for TCU, the move ensures an opportunity every year to earn an automatic BCS bid. Until Boise State lost to Nevada last Friday, the Horned Frogs were likely out of the BCS picture. Multiple current Big East members, including Syracuse Athletic Director Daryl Gross, applauded TCU’s addition. “It’s a win-win,” Gross said. “We get reenhanced for football. They get re-enhanced for basketball.” After a summer of realignment within the major conferences, Gross said the Big East is in “better shape” than it was six months ago. “We have been talking about strengthening our conference for some time,” Gross said. “For a number of months. … All we can do is control what we can do in our conference and try to strengthen and enhance it. And I think we’ve done a good job of doing that.” Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor also praised the move through SU spokesman Kevin Quinn. “She is very supportive,” Quinn said. The Big East has also extended an offer to Villanova to become the league’s 10th football member. That pending invite was reported in early September. For football, TCU’s benefits to the conference are obvious. But for basketball, the Big East gets a TCU program that has struggled in recent years. The Horned Frogs went 13-19 last season. They have not had more than 14 wins — or a winning season — since 2004-05, the lowlight of that stretch coming with a dismal 6-25 finish in 2005-06. And those facts were evident in SU men’s basketball head coach Jim Boeheim’s reaction to the news Monday. “This is a football decision,” Boeheim said in a phone interview. Boeheim said he was not approached or notified of the move by anyone in Syracuse’s administration. But he said he supported the decision. “This is an administrative decision,” he said. “They have to do what’s best for the university.
The chancellor and the athletic director have to make these decisions with the best interests of the university at heart.” How the Big East basketball conference shapes up depends on what happens in the months ahead. Boeheim said there are obvious possibilities of expanding to an 18-team league in basketball, but that depends on whether Villanova accepts a reported invitation into the conference. The Big East has an 18-game regular-season schedule, wherein there are three repeat games for each team. That format is based on television contracts with CBS and ESPN that both run through 2012-13. How TCU’s addition will affect that schedule is still to be determined. “If you go to 18, you’re probably looking at some kind of divisions,” Boeheim said. “But all that has to wait until everything is decided.” Jake Crouthamel, Syracuse’s athletic director from 1978-2005, echoed Boeheim’s overall sentiments. He said there were obvious advantages in adding a current top-five football program to a struggling conference. It also made sense for scheduling purposes, as each of the current nine Big East football teams will now play an equal four home and away games in conference play. This will eliminate the unbalanced schedule. “On the surface, it’s a curious move,” Crouthamel said in a phone interview. “But when you look at it from a standpoint of trying to gain back — and I emphasize ‘back’ — some degree of credibility in football in the BCS, where (the Big East) has not done well recently, going after a football program with the quality of TCU is certainly understandable.” But at the same time, Crouthamel said the addition does not make much sense for other sports, especially Boeheim’s men’s basketball program. He said it was “curious” from the perspective of all sides — TCU, Syracuse and the rest of the Big East — to add such an expensive trip to all sports. But in the end, he said he trusted that the Big East’s administration took every factor into account before making the final decision. And ultimately, the prospect of adding a current top-five football program made that final decision a relatively easy one. “There was a lot of movement (this summer), and the speculation was that the Big East would be devoured and torn apart,” Gross said. “At the end of the summer, the Big East was still standing. We were able to survive, but better than that, now we’ve moved forward.”

Buerkle, a graduate of the SU College of Law, received only $50 from SU employees while Maffei received $21,275. Despite contributing more to Maffei, SU spokesman Kevin Quinn said university employees will have to make their own decision on whether or not to support Buerkle in the future. “Congressman Maffei was a great support of the university, but we look forward to working with Congresswoman-elect Buerkle moving forward,” he said. ESF President Neil Murphy gave a total of $325 to Maffei’s campaign but could not be reached for comment regarding Buerkle’s recent victory. But Murphy has previously voiced his displeasure regarding Buerkle’s view that climate change is a myth. “This is not new,” Murphy said in an article published on The Post-Standard’s website on Oct. 14. “This has been known by scientists for decades. We’re going to have changes of ocean levels of 1- to 4-feet by the end of the next century. We’re going to have a temperature change of 8- to 9-degrees. This demands action, not denial. Climate change is real.” During an Oct. 29 interview, Maffei said Buerkle’s opinion on global climate change would not relate to voters. “Given her values that global climate change is a myth in a city that has one of the best schools of environmental science and forestry in the country,” Maffei said, “I just don’t think that will compute with the voters here.” But Buerkle related enough to voters to squeak out a victory over Maffei. In her victory speech, Buerkle pledged to work for the people of the 25th District. “I want to say to all the people in the 25th District, I pledge to you that you will have an open door, that I will represent you to the very best of my abilities and that you will have a congressman who will listen to you and take your interests and your needs to Washington,” she said.

Youngseek Kim, a graduate student in the School of Information Studies from South Korea, said he thinks the coverage of the attacks he saw on American news outlets, such as CNN, overdramatized the situation.

The United States’ concern about the issue has been inflated, he said. “Many times the U.S. media and the U.S. gov-
ernment make North Korea as a kind of symbol of evil,” Kim said. “This kind of exaggeration makes the U.S. more worried.” Additionally, small incidents between the two countries that show the tensions often go unreported in American media, Kim said. But issues on the Korean peninsula attracted the attention of students on campus before the attacks. The Slutzker Center offered programs on North Korea during International Education Week from Nov. 15 to Nov. 19, in which 50 students were present. On Monday, Liberty in North Korea, a group that advocates for rights for North Korean dissidents, screened the film “Hiding” to an audience of more than 60 students. The film documented the struggle of North Koreans who escaped through an underground network of safe houses to seek asylum in Southeast Asia and South Korea. If captured, the North Korean refugees could be killed for treason or put into labor camps, according to the documentary. The film included footage of an execution in North Korea of one refugee who was discovered in China. Ariana Yuen, who is in the process of cofounding the SU chapter of LiNK, said she was glad to see increased coverage of North Korea.
“I think it’s a good thing North Korea is appearing in the news,” Yuen said. “Hopefully this will shed some light on what’s happening.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Onondaga whooping cough epidemic ends, continues nationally By Rebecca Kheel ASST. NEWS EDITOR
n outbreak of whooping cough continues nationally but has subsided in Onondaga County after striking 118 people over a sixmonth span. The outbreak started in April and officially ended in September, though there have been a couple cases since, said Quoc Nguyen, Onondaga County’s medical director. The county declared the outbreak over after approximately two weeks, or two incubation periods, passed without any cases, he said. No deaths occurred. In Onondaga County, half the cases were of children ages 10 to 14, Nguyen said. The next most common age group was children ages 5 to 9. “We don’t try to wrap our heads on why an outbreak ends,” Nguyen said. “It reaches a tipping point.” Whooping cough, also known as pertussis, is a highly contagious respiratory bacterial disease that causes uncontrollable, violent coughing that often makes it hard to breathe.
Onondaga County typically sees 12 to 15 cases of whooping cough per year, but an outbreak of whooping cough is common every three to five years, Nguyen said. A number of factors contribute to the recurrence of outbreaks, he said. The vaccine does not last a lifetime, and the bacteria that causes the illness mutates every few years, rendering the vaccine ineffective. Also, because the vaccine is so widespread, less people have natural bacterium to protect themselves. The first step in containing the outbreak was to focus on those who tested positive for whooping cough, Nguyen said. They were interviewed to determine who else they may have affected, so those people could be diagnosed and prescribed antibiotics if needed. The county disseminated information about the disease and warned people to watch out and get treatment. It also reminded physicians to give booster shots to patients. This year’s outbreak was not isolated to Onondaga County. Outbreaks occurred nationally and hit California especially hard. From
January to Nov. 16, California saw 6,795 cases of whooping cough, including 10 infant deaths, according to the California Department of Public Health. This is the highest number of cases in California in 63 years. In 1947, 9,394 cases were reported. Donna Bacchi, the chair for the Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at Syracuse University and Upstate Medical University, said she thinks the county did a good job handling the outbreak. “The health commissioner started providing information and was able to reduce the severity and number of cases,” Bacchi said. Bacchi said the only way to completely prevent outbreaks would be for everyone to be fully immunized. Coughing into the upper arm and frequent hand washing could also help individuals prevent the spread of an outbreak, she said. Because the bulk of the outbreak occurred during the summer, elementary schools in Syracuse were not affected very much, said Maritza Alvarado, director of medical services for the Syracuse City School District. Teachers,
nursing staff and parents were informed of the outbreak, but no special precautions were taken to safeguard the schools from whooping cough, she said. The mawin issue schools face during an outbreak is that adults with minor symptoms are present and spread the illness to children who do not have immunizations, she said. “The more there’s a concentration of little bodies, the more there are chances for spreading the disease,” Alvarado said. “We would be looking at a different picture if this happened during the school year.” SU did not see any cases, said Kathy VanVechten, associate director of SU Health Services. Because nobody showed signs of having whooping cough, no further evaluation was done. SU likely did not see any cases because whooping cough most commonly affects small children, she said. Said VanVechten: “But we always have an increased index of suspicion when there’s an outbreak in the area.” email@example.com

ing to the police report. Two flat-screen TVs were also stolen at 121 Small Road Apartment 5, said resident Alicia Lewis, a junior business management major. “They moved one of my roommate’s DVD players into my other roommate’s room, so we think that they meant to take it but forgot,” Lewis said. She said she believes one of her roommates left the apartment’s screen door unlocked during the break. The last roommate to leave for the break departed Nov. 23 around 6 p.m., and the group returned to the apartment around 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, when Lewis’ roommates discovered their TVs missing. “They left my TV intact,” Lewis said about her heavier analog TV. “It was a little too ghetto.” It is fairly probable the same individuals carried out all the burglaries, Rathbun said, but he did not have a description of the suspects. “It is kind of unusual,” he said. “My hope is that it never happens again.” DPS and Syracuse police are working very closely in the follow-up investigations, Rathbun said. DPS has also “substantially” increased patrols on South Campus, he said, but would not give an exact number of the increase. DPS will work to secure South Campus apartments in three weeks for Winter Break, he said.

There are two undergraduate liaison positions and one graduate liaison position in SA. To be elected an undergraduate liaison, candidates originally needed to fi ll out a petition, collect 25 signatures, interview before SA and be elected by the Assembly. The bill passed Monday night did away with elections for one of the liaison seats, which will now be fi lled by the president. The other liaison seat will remain open to the student body. The graduate liaison seat automatically goes to the president of the Graduate Student Organization. Barnhart and Casey currently hold the two undergraduate liaison positions, elected on a semester-by-semester basis. Some SA members argued the Assembly should retain the power to elect the president as a liaison to act as a check to the president and that presidents should have the chance to opt out of the position because of its added pressure and time constraints to an already demanding job. Comptroller Jeff Rickert said because the SA president is directly elected by the student body, SA should not need to elect him once again. Casey said one of the main jobs of the president is to communicate students’ needs to the university. “What better outlet for the president than the Board of Trustees?” he said. Barnhart said he learned a “monstrous amount” from the Board of Trustees. “If you don’t have that title of trustee or liaison, it’s much more difficult to communicate with them,” he said. Barnhart said the Board of Trustees is moving “up a curve” of becoming student-oriented and making students’ welfare a priority. The
board’s meetings helped him realize overcrowding on campus could affect dining halls and programs for special groups, such as transfer students, and resources, such as the Lillian and Emanuel Slutzker Center for International Services, he said. The Board of Trustees typically meets once a month, usually over teleconference, and meets in person one or two times a semester. SA also passed a bill Monday that will set aside 2.5 percent of the student activity fee starting in January, creating a student advancement fund that will provide a way for SA to fund student services as students request them. SA’s student advancement fund is separate from its operating budget, which covers “day-today” costs, including pens and paper. The money could be put toward a bus to Wegmans and either Target or Walmart, Barnhart said. He said the money would go toward “things that are beneficial to the student body but that it doesn’t have money set aside for,” such as RideShark, a forum for students commuting or traveling home on breaks to organize carpools. The fund would also be used for “once-in-a-lifetime experiences,” such as political rallies, he said. Students can make requests to the president to fund a project. The president brings it to SA’s cabinet or decides with SA’s faculty adviser whether to allocate the money when a decision needs to be made over the summer or before the next weekly cabinet meeting. Barnhart said he is aware of the potential danger of the fund, as organizations may try to use it to win extra funding. He said SA has not set guidelines for how to determine whether a request is granted to receive money from the new fund. email@example.com

hanksgiving is seen as an American celebration, but Syracuse University’s international students discovered that the holiday’s values do not stop at U.S. borders. During the 31st annual International Thanksgiving Meal, held on Nov. 21 in Goldstein Auditorium at Schine Student Center, they saw that Thanksgiving was about more than eating an overabundance of food. Over 400 international students and their families were treated to a traditional American Thanksgiving meal, including turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie.

The meal also catered to the students’ religious and dietary restrictions varying by culture. The dinner’s main purpose was not to just introduce students to the American holiday but also celebrate cross-cultural demonstrations of gratitude. “The dinner is an educational event,” said Thomas Wolfe, dean of Student Affairs. “Gratitude is an idea that doesn’t have borders, and students were able to share their own expressions of thanks from their cultures.” The event was sponsored by Hendricks Chapel, the Division of Student Affairs and the Lillian and Emanuel Slutzker Center for International

Services. Each table at the meal had an American “host,” a university faculty member who helped to teach the students the nuances of the holiday traditions. Tiffany Steinwert, dean of Hendricks, and Patricia Burak, director of the Slutzker Center, co-hosted the dinner. About 20 percent of the university’s international student body was in attendance, Burak said. “Food is an international vehicle for friendship,” Burak said. “Getting together with friends, family and the hosts of each table acting as family is more significant than the immersion in American culture.” The Syracuse community brought
together the international students with food and friendship, Burak said, while keeping the emphasis of the evening away from strictly American culture. Although most were unfamiliar with Thanksgiving traditions, Steinwert said the dinner was more about the concept behind the holiday. “The meal is about experiencing the rich global diversity at SU,” Steinwert said. “Thanksgiving provides us with an opportunity to gather folks around the table and talk about global customs of celebrating family and offering hospitality.” Chancellor Nancy Cantor and President Cornelius Murphy Jr. of
the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry gave remarks preceding the meal, reflecting on the importance of global diversity on each university’s respective campus. Before the meal was served, a professional chef was brought to the stage to demonstrate the carving of the turkey. The event also featured entertainment from foreign cultures, including musical acts from SU students Yuan Zou and Ruitong Zhou, a graduate student in the Martin J.

Art professor to discuss connection between art, education By Karen Hor

that is outside of art.” She will present her personal artwork as well as student artwork focused on how other areas of the curriculum, such as science and history, are imperative to an artist’s creation. Marshall’s presentation, titled “ArtBased Research and the Intersection Between Making Art and Teaching Art,” will be held at 6:30 p.m. in Shemin Auditorium of Shaffer Art Building. The event is free of charge. Marshall has been a practicing art educator for 27 years and is now a pro-
fessor of art education at San Francisco State University. Most of Marshall’s work is art-based research that serves to remodel primary and secondary school art education. James Haywood Rolling Jr., chair and associate professor of art education at Syracuse University, invited Marshall to speak because he believes she will expose the postmodern art world to the university — that is, the world of studio arts, architecture, design majors and practitioners. “(She has) the critical relevance of
arts and design education principles in rethinking the arts in the 21st Century,” Rolling said. Despite her authority in the arts world, Rolling said it was Marshall’s eloquence that made her the perfect lecturer for the presentation. Marshall’s work concentrates the role of education in contemporary art. When she received her doctorate, Marshall said she couldn’t sleep because of the overwhelming amount of information she learned. “There is no separation,” said Mar-
shall, on teaching and art. “The teaching part and writing part are really sort of the spine of it, the nerves, which are the art projects. It kind of stems from the spinal cord.” Rolling said Marshall erases boundaries that can crop up in art and uses this ability to communicate different messages through her craft. Rolling said he hopes people will leave the event with a deeper understanding of the arts, design in general education and in educational research. SEE MARSHALL PAGE 14

Students, sports teams donate Thanksgiving staples for food drive By Oswaldo Campos-Torres Contributing Writer
Though Thanksgiving was still weeks away, Syeisha Byrd sat in Hendricks Chapel’s Office of Engagement Programs as people dropped off bags and bags of turkey, cranberry sauce and potatoes in front of her. “I would be sitting in my office and individual students would just come by and drop stuff off,” said Byrd, the director of the Office of Engagement Programs. “Even though staff and faculty donated, the majority came from students.” The office collected 67 bags of food during its annual Thanksgiving drive. At the end of the
drive on Nov. 17, the office distributed the bags to the Faith Hope Community Center, Huntington Family Center, Inc. and other local organizations. Both the Faith Hope and Huntington centers focus on services for local families. Syracuse University students contributed by donating canned food and other products, starting Nov. 1. Student athletic teams, such as volleyball, track and field, cheerleading, soccer and women’s softball, as well as the Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity, contributed to the cause. The Office of Engagement Programs sponsors this yearly event to show support to the
community and to offer a helping hand to those in need. The main goal of the event is providing enough food so that everyone could celebrate Thanksgiving, Byrd said. “A lot of this food came from student groups as well as the gift cards that were donated came from the athletic department,” Byrd said. Students had the opportunity to give stuffing, cranberry sauce, potatoes and other traditional Thanksgiving side dishes. They could also donate gift cards to a local grocery store for the purchase of a turkey. Each bag contained nine of the required Thanksgiving-themed items that were donated. The office held a packaging party on the last day of the drive with the help of about 50 students. They packed up several bags of food, each containing at least 10 items. “We divided everything into groups. Corn
and gravy, we did all that with some help from the (volunteers),” Byrd said. The volunteers created an assembly line to speed up the packaging. Lists of the required foods were stapled to each bag, and each food item was checked off the list when it went in the bag. When the bag was full, it was put to the side. Byrd had scheduled the packaging party to last for three hours, but all of the bags were done in an hour. This event has lasted for more than 18 years. The Office of Engagement Programs is planning on doing another Thanksgiving food drive next year with a goal of obtaining 100 bags. “It is a time to bring family together,” Byrd said. “It’s all about the harvest of food. But more or less, it is a time to bring the family together around the table with food and conversation.” firstname.lastname@example.org
Marshall will also be sharing her expertise with the university’s art education majors in classes held on Nov. 30. Marshall said she always knew she wanted to be an artist since she was 5 years old. But once she entered the art industry, she wanted to get out. “The art world, it’s all very commercial. It’s very fashion-oriented. One day you’re in, the next day you’re out,” Marshall said. She said she wanted to be more contributive to the world. When she found her passion in art education, it gave her an opportunity to be more socially engaged with others — artists and art lovers — and allowed her to be involved in teaching others to understand art on a more academic standpoint. Marshall said she hopes that students, art majors and practitioners will see how teaching, writing and the art weave together. At the presentation, Marshall will show projects from Berkley High School — an art-based research project in which she is currently involved. She will also show some of her research workbook, as well as her paintings. One of her favorite works is a big marble ship planted in China — a piece she made with her husband. “He designed the marble ship, and I designed the images of viruses, weapons and drugs on it. It has cultural connotation and (irony) from popular culture,” Marshall said. “There’s kimchi, Elvis Presley and kids from ‘South Park’ on it.”
Chinese music. Rongrong Cui, a third-year master’s student in the School of Education who introduced the act, said the dinner was an opportunity to share and celebrate ideas, regardless of nationality. “Thanksgiving may mean more to Americans,” said Cui, a counseling and human services major. “But it is more about the meaning than the content of the festival. In China, we celebrate the Moon Festival and the Spring Festival, but it does not matter what festivals we celebrate, nor what country we come from or what language we speak.” Many of the event’s international attendees were repeat guests to the meal, which was an indicator that the International Thanksgiving Meal will be well received for years to come, said Burak. “(The students) are always willing to participate and learn about the values and histories of holidays of other nationalities, while making comparisons to the holidays they celebrate at home,” Burak said. Although Thanksgiving is an American tradition, students spanning the globe were able to draw similarities to their own cultures during the meal. “It offers such a nice environment for the international students to gather and meet new people,” Cui said. “We get the opportunity to share our joy, our happiness and our feelings with each other.”

SYRACUSE vs GEORGIA TECH
” “ 61 BIG NUMBER
“We were trying to make (Georgia Tech forward Brian Oliver) a playmaker instead of a shooter. Just run him off the spot. And we kind of did that late in the game. Get him uncomfortable.”
The percentage Syracuse shot in the second half. The strong offensive performance – SU shot 11-of18 in the half – propelled the Orange to the championship after a poor offensive start to the season.
FAT LADY SINGS 1:58, second half
80 GEORGIA TECH SYRACUSE
With Syracuse up 72-67, and a possession after Brian Oliver scored two of his 32 points to help the Yellow Jackets draw closer – Rick Jackson puts home an alley-oop. SU held on for the rest of the game.
You could sense from Georgia Tech head coach Paul Hewitt postgame that Miller was the night’s goat. Hewitt fumed quietly about his team’s lack of physicality. Miller was the center of it, scoring zero points and hauling in only four rebounds.
Rick Jackson Jackson playing all 40 minutes in games is getting old. Rather, the surprise Saturday was the fact that he was indeed awarded the MVP award despite Kris Joseph’s play. He did everything to earn it, with 26 rebounds total in the tournament including two double-doubles.
Jackson dominates inside, snags tournament MVP By Tony Olivero ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. –– Staring coldly at the box score during his stern 15-second opening statement, Paul Hewitt touched on what he felt killed Georgia Tech in its loss to Syracuse. Yes, the man sitting to the right of him, Brian Oliver, exploded for 32 points. But Syracuse’s play with its forwards and centers was the real story of the afternoon. That’s what the Georgia Tech head coach felt won the game. Rick Jackson won the game. “They decided to force their physical will on us,” Hewitt said. “We didn’t match it. We didn’t match it at all.” Jackson was at the forefront of the Orange’s physical style of play Hewitt harped on. The senior power forward registered another double-double with 10 points and 14 rebounds while playing in all 40 minutes Saturday. The effort, when coupled with his 12 rebounds in SU’s semifinal win over Michigan Friday, gave Jackson 26 total rebounds in the Legends Classic. It also gave him the tournament’s MVP award. Jackson wasn’t surprised by the honor, much like Hewitt wasn’t surprised at what lost the game for the Yellow Jackets. Hewitt said he thought the game would fall in Syracuse’s favor once he saw that his players weren’t fouling Jackson and the Orange’s other big men. The Yellow Jackets head coach instructed his team to force SU’s bigs to go to the line out of a perceived lack of free-throw touch. “Jackson was 0-for-1. (Fab) Melo was 0-for-2. And (Baye Moussa) Keita didn’t even attempt
a free throw.” Hewitt said. “So we fouled a lot based upon how the whistles were going. But at least put those guys at the foul line to see what they can do.” Jackson said he expected the award. “No, I’m not surprised at all,” Jackson said. “You go hard — when you give 110 percent, you have got to get good results.” Giving 100 percent is exactly what Jackson did all tournament. And the results came. Playing 78 of 80 total minutes in SU’s two wins was enough to feel confident about stealing the MVP award from Kris Joseph. Joseph led SU with 22 and 19 points in each of the two wins. But Jackson was the grit that led SU to the glory. In his eyes, all of those 78 minutes were hard earned. Especially the 40 he played in the championship, without a break. The minutes full of reckless sacrifice underneath the basket. “I just go out there, really trying to put my body on the line,” Jackson said. “This tournament has been crazy. A lot of big guys. A lot of pushing and grabbing. But you have got to keep fighting, pushing with it. And get positive results.” The positive results that were yielded for SU came in the form of 80 total points Saturday. Thirty-four of those points came in the paint, where Jackson dominated Georgia Tech starting center Daniel Miller all night. Miller ended the game scoreless. And 19 of those points came via the fastbreak or off turnovers. In an up-and-down game, action on the break was plentiful. But it wasn’t limited to the likes of SU guard Scoop Jardine
and Georgia Tech’s three starting guards — the Yellow Jackets’ strength. Jackson stayed with the pace as well, throwing down several dunks, including a gameclinching alley-oop from Jardine just under the two-minute mark. The rebounds Hewitt glared at on the box score, though, were the statistics that started it all. Jackson was the reason for the rebounds. Hewitt and Jardine acknowledged that. “I’m going to credit our big guys,” Jardine said. “Once again, Rick was getting rebounds that were allowing us to get on the break.” email@example.com

With Legends Classic title, SU ﬁnally beginning to live up to early hype By Tony Olivero ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
Jim Boeheim wanted to answer one last question. There were things left unsaid. Seated at the Boardwalk Hall podium, he scanned the assembled press in Atlantic City, N.J., for any further inquiries about his team’s Legends Classic championship. He would make sure everything was cleared up, even if he and the press were told — urged — by a tournament employee that the press conference was over. With the one final question, he cleared the air about Syracuse’s performance through six games. He attempted to do it after he was asked about his comments after Syracuse’s second game, when he called the Orange “overrated.” Once more he cleared the air about what he meant then and where he feels the team is now. “I said that (we were overrated) four games ago,” Boeheim said. “I just said what was obvious. Well, when we haven’t played well, we have won. We haven’t played well for five games, and we managed to win the five. Tonight we did play well, and that was the difference.” That was the big difference. With the end of the two-game tournament in Atlantic City, N.J., Boeheim and the Orange players felt SU took strides in playing like a Top 10 team. But more specifically, with the 80-76 victory over Georgia Tech Saturday, Syracuse basked in the first performance of the young season in which SU believed it played up to its talent. It was what was expected out of the Thanksgiving weekend trip. Boeheim and the SU players said it would be the first true test of the year. The No. 8 Orange (6-0) will look to build off that performance Tuesday while hosting fellow 2010 Central New York NCAA Tournament
team Cornell (2-4) at 7 p.m. inside the Carrier Dome. The Orange and the Big Red both reached the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament last year, as Cornell lost to No. 1-seeded Kentucky in the Dome. But it’s a game that comes for SU light-years away from the 86-67 win over Canisius on Nov. 14, when Boeheim called the Orange overrated. At the crux of that: After the five games with which Boeheim wasn’t pleased, SU found a rhythm, especially offensively. A successful offense was the paramount step off the two tussles against major conference teams. SU shot 48 percent over the weekend after entering the games shooting 40 percent — and 32.6 percent in first halves. For SU guard Scoop Jardine, Saturday’s win was much simpler, though. It was just that — a win. “It’s a win, we get better from it,” Jardine said. “We learn from it.” With the matchup against the Big Red, Syracuse will have to learn against a similar inferior opponent like the four SU faced to start the season. Cornell is a shell of the team that last appeared in the Dome. It lost four starters from last year, along with head coach Steve Donahue. The sole returning starter is junior guard Chris Wroblewski, who is averaging a team-high 15.3 points per game. Unlike Cornell, Kris Joseph is professing that this year’s incarnation of SU is a team without just one go-to player. He was happy with the Legends Classic title, calling it a “10 out of 10” as SU won the way he expects to win this year. Not by blowing out teams but by playing a physical, balanced, competitive brand of basketball. “We are going to have to fight till the end,”
Joseph said. “And one thing I found out about us is we have a lot of heart. … That’s one thing we are going to need to do throughout the remainder of the year. Keep fighting.” SU fought enough for the win. But after the game, the scene of Boeheim not at the podium but in SU’s locker room hinted at the fact that he said SU still has a ways to go. Void of almost all of the press, Boeheim’s sons smiled and kidded as they coddled the Legends
Classic trophy. Around the locker room wall, though, their father slumped in a chair with an entourage of a half-dozen people circling him. He was tired from the weekend. There is more that needs to be done, and he said that. “This was a tremendous tournament for us,” he said. “But we have certainly got to play better.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Marcus Sales After a slow start to the season, Sales has become one of SU’s most dependable offensive options. Sales finished Saturday’s game against Boston College with a team-high five catches for 73 yards. Antwon Bailey With starting running back Delone Carter sitting out the second half, Bailey ran for 51 yards and scored SU’s only touchdown after the intermission. He finished with 72 yards on 18 carries for the day.
Special teams Three penalties, two muffed punts and a fumbled kickoff return all contributed to a poor afternoon for SU’s special teams. In a game of field position, these miscues proved to be vital to the game’s outcome. Alec Lemon Lemon, SU’s second-leading receiver coming into the game, was held without a catch Saturday. He has been banged up recently, which may have been a contributing factor.
HERO Andre Williams Williams filled in for injured starter Montel Harris and proved to be the difference-maker in the game. The freshman running back went off for 185 yards and a touchdown as BC handed him the ball 42 times.

Bailey replaces Carter, shines in 2nd half By Brett LoGiurato Asst. Sports Editor
Even as Ryan Nassib watched Antwon Bailey shine in his new role, he knew what the loss of Delone Carter meant for his Syracuse offense. “Delone is such a big part of our offense,” Nassib said. “Antwon was getting a lot of carries and a lot of touches. It was disappointing.” Carter hurt himself in the first half of SU’s 16-7 loss to Boston College Saturday. He left the game with six carries for 30 yards and one reception for 8 yards. All of those came in the first half. Carter could be seen visibly limping at points in the second quarter. But he was never removed in the half, and his last carry came on a 3-yard rush late in the quarter. “He got nicked up,” SU head coach Doug Marrone said after the game when asked about Carter’s status. “Injury.” Marrone would not elaborate on Carter’s status. But his absence — during which he was noticeably still seen on the sideline in uniform — cost the Orange its two-headed threat at the running back position. Bailey filled in admirably for Carter, carrying the ball 18 times for 72 yards and punctuating his efforts with a 5-yard touchdown. Bailey was most impressive during the Orange’s 12-play, 80-yard drive to open the second half. That drive was also easily the most impressive of Syracuse’s day as a team. After Nassib opened up the pass game with three passes of 10 yards or more in a row, all he had to do from there was give the ball to Bailey. In five plays — the last four of which were on rushes — Bailey took the ball 20 yards into the end zone to give SU a temporary 7-6 lead. He converted on a crucial third-and-1 from the BC 11-yard line. And two plays later, he finished the drive with the 5-yard touchdown

scamper. “Every man did his job,” Bailey said of the drive. “We were all focused. Whatever was called, we were making it work.” But it wasn’t that easy the rest of the way for Bailey, just like it wasn’t for the rest of Syracuse’s offense. On SU’s next drive, he broke out for a 15-yard run but was stuffed on three more chances. Prince-Tyson Gulley wasn’t a factor as a second option, making Carter’s loss hurt even more. And in the end, despite the individual success, it only led to the collective feeling of disappointment for Bailey. “It’s definitely disappointing,” Bailey said. “We wanted to send the seniors out the right way.”
Sale-ing Marcus Sales’ presence has been felt at times this season — most notably in his game-winning touchdown catch Oct. 9 at South Florida. But on Saturday against Boston College, Sales was finally the man. He was the go-to receiver for Nassib, hauling in five catches for 73 yards. “He has been able to really get open and separate,” Marrone said of Sales. “He has been consistent. He has really risen above. … I’m happy for Marcus Sales.” Sales was a consistent threat from the start.
His 26-yard catch on the Orange’s opening drive was a career-long. And on SU’s touchdown drive, Sales caught three passes, all of which were for 10 yards or more. After a holding penalty, Sales’ catch on first-and-18 gave the Orange its momentum back. “What he has done is something for us to look forward to,” Marrone said, “and something for us to build upon as we get ready to start practicing and move on to win more football games.”

sean harp | staff photographer dorian graham (10) was called for a fair catch interference penalty Saturday against Boston College after making a hit on BC’s Bobby Swigert. The penalty, one of seven committed by Syracuse that day, led to an Eagles field goal right before halftime. Saturday’s game was the first since the firing of special teams coach Bob Casullo on Monday.
In low-scoring contest of field position, Syracuse’s special teams falter By Andrew L. John Sports Editor
With an offense on the mend and a defense tired from carrying the load, it would have been conceivable for Doug Marrone to look to his special teams unit. The Syracuse head coach could have put the pressure on the specialists to guide SU to victory. But in a low scoring contest that ultimately turned into a game of field position, the Orange’s special teams unit — fresh off the dismissal of coordinator Bob Casullo — failed to put itself in the right spots to score. In the critical stages of the game, penalties and inefficiency on special teams contributed mightily to the 16-7 loss to Boston College Saturday. Adding to the aggravation for Marrone is the fact that the Orange finished the game with seven penalties for 68 yards on Senior Day inside the Carrier Dome. “It’s frustrating,” Marrone said. “We have seven penalties, and the other team has one penalty. … That has gone on at times throughout the
from page 24
during that four-game stretch. Just 11.5 points per game. In the process, the Orange went from second in the Big East standings, with a chance at a BCS bowl berth, to now sitting fourth in the league with a week to go. Those recent offensive struggles have been the prime subject of nearly every one of SU head coach Doug Marrone’s press conferences over the last four weeks. It has been noted that this is a young offensive squad with multiple first-year starters. The depth chart is thin. Players are nicked up after eight consecutive weeks without a break. Though Marrone doesn’t like to make excuses, the reasons for the struggles are valid.
year, especially in our losses.” With an offense that has only scored two touchdowns in its last 12 quarters, Syracuse needed to win the field position battle. It needed its special teams to put it in a position to score points as much, perhaps, as it has relied heavily on its stout defense all season. Early in the first quarter, SU set itself up to repeat the reoccurring offensive problems when an illegal block penalty set the Orange back on its first possession. Six plays later, the usually dependable Rob Long muffed a punt, setting the Eagles up in good field position. Though unable to capitalize initially, BC controlled the ball and continually put the Orange offense deep into its own territory. Again and again, SU’s special teams was unable to put its offense or its defense in a position to control the game. “It’s definitely important because no matter how many points you win by, a win is a win,” SU wide receiver Dorian Graham said. As the game continued, the problems persisted.
The one time SU could have began a drive at midfield or better, with 10:27 remaining in the second quarter, a holding penalty set the Orange back 10 yards. Continually unable to move the ball with consistency, Syracuse punted three plays later. Later in the quarter, Long punted the ball 40 yards, but a 15-yard punt-catching interference penalty on Graham gave BC the ball at midfield. Just six plays later, the Eagles added a field goal to their tally. “It’s always a big thing, especially in this game,” SU safety Max Suter said. “They had times where they had us on our line, and we just couldn’t stop them a couple times. We were in bad field position, and you can’t win games if you can’t stop them.” On three separate occasions, the Orange began a drive inside its own 10-yard line. An offense that has struggled was essentially put in a position where it had to produce for Syracuse to win. After gaining some momentum following a 12-play, 80-yard drive in the third quarter, a fumble by kick returner Prince-Tyson Gulley put the Orange back into a field position hole. Though
Gulley recovered the loose football, quarterback Ryan Nassib and the Orange had 95 yards of field between his offense and the end zone. Syracuse eventually punted after eating up 4:40 of clock on eight plays for just 22 yards. On the ensuing possession, BC put the game out of reach with a field goal. By the time the fourth quarter rolled around, SU cleaned up the mistakes. But with BC starting the quarter near midfield and the Orange unable to stop the run, Syracuse found itself down by two scores with 6:44 remaining. Three plays after the Eagles increased its lead to 16-7, Marrone opted to punt because of his team’s poor field position. After the game, he was asked about his decision to punt with 5:22 remaining, trailing by two scores. His answer came back to the field position. And Graham concurred with the head coach. Said Graham: “Special teams play a big role in field position, and we just did not get it done today.”
“Consistency is important. Playmakers are important, and making plays is important,” Marrone said. “What has happened is we have been beat up. We don’t have the same speed and efficiency that we had earlier in the year because of injuries that you do not want to have right now.” But despite the reasons for the ineptitude, any team playing in the postseason shouldn’t be having such a difficult time putting points on the board. Even a year ago, when SU won just four games, its offense didn’t have a four-game stretch as bad as this one. And heading into a bowl game in a matter of weeks, it’s the one thing that could spell disaster for a team many pegged as one that has turned a corner on the rough days of yesteryear. When asked about the offensive issues Saturday, all Marrone could do was smile and shake his head to prevent the poignant frustration from
boiling over. “If I knew the answer to that, I would attack it and go,” Marrone said. With the exceptions of Carter and center Ryan Bartholomew, every other player on the offensive side of the ball has stepped into a new role this season. Yes, Nassib still has two years of eligibility after this season. Yes, in theory, the Orange offense should have some returning experience coming back next season. But Marrone has never been one to look too far ahead. He’s likely focusing on how to fix the problem now. With SU now focusing solely on a bowl game, it’s safe to say the offense will be under the microscope over the next couple weeks. “Being the quarterback, I almost try to do too much, which usually comes back and gets you,” Nassib said Saturday. “Everyone is trying to make plays, and we just have to relax and play ball.”
Syracuse has now finished its regular season and has secured itself a spot in a bowl to be determined later. But to avoid an embarrassing performance when it gets there, the kinks on offense need to be worked out. In spite of the fact that Marrone and Co. will have a few weeks to rest and prepare for its next opponent, it will be nearly impossible for this offense to suddenly start hitting on all cylinders. But well rested and perhaps a bit healthier, the Orange offense will need to improve for SU to capture a bowl victory. And after that small glimpse into just how efficient its offense can move the ball, anything less would be a disappointment heading into the offseason.

boston college from page 24
inside the Carrier Dome, Syracuse (7-5, 4-3 Big East) fell victim to a Boston College (7-5, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) rushing attack that was predicated on Williams. “You can’t win games,” SU senior safety Max Suter said, “if you can’t stop them.” With an offensive game plan similar to teams like Pittsburgh, Louisville and Connecticut before them, the Eagles rushed Williams at every chance and every situation. And he took on the challenge, carrying the

ball an astounding 42 times for 185 yards and a touchdown. With Williams starting in place of injured ACC-leading rusher Montel Harris, BC didn’t miss a beat. Boston College only passed on 20 plays, while Williams, James McCluskey and quarterback Chase Rettig combined to rush 51 times. “We just got a little unbalanced,” BC head coach Frank Spaziani said, “because of the situation of the game.” A helpless defense against the run cost SU once again, much like when Louisville’s
Jeremy Wright and Connecticut’s Jordan Todman were able to run all over the Orange in previous games this season. While BC marched down the field methodically in the first half with Williams, eating up clock and converting on five of its first seven third-down conversions, SU only chalked up 98 yards in the half. On its first drive of the game, Syracuse whipped up three quick plays that went 41 yards. From there, the drive stalled quickly. Subsequent drives came and went. Three plays, four yards. Three plays, eight yards. But that changed as soon as the Orange got the ball to open the second half. Twelve plays and 80 yards later, SU almost matched its entire first-half output. Syracuse converted on a crucial third-and-1 from the 11-yard line, as Antwon Bailey’s 4-yard rush proved to be the difference between a field goal and touchdown. Bailey would finish the job with a 5-yard run into the end zone. “That is the story of our season,” SU quarterbacks coach and offensive playcaller Nathaniel Hackett said. “We get one perfect drive, and then all of a sudden things start breaking down.” Immediately, SU’s defense couldn’t take advantage of the momentum. And things started to break down. The unit allowed a response from BC — a 10-play, 78-yard drive that included two thirddown conversions. The drive was capped off by the second third-down conversion, as Williams barreled 1 yard into the end zone to give BC a 13-7 lead. The Eagles went 11-for-18 on third-down conversions in the game. “Yeah, I want to punch somebody when that happens,” SU defensive coordinator Scott Shafer said of the frequent third-down conversions against his unit.
sean harp | staff photographer andre williams (far right) receives a handoff for Boston College on one of his 42 carries Saturday. Williams touched the ball on 59 percent of BC’s offensive plays. And Boston College was able to convert four times on a drive that spanned the end of the third and beginning of the fourth quarters, setting up its final field goal to put the finishing touches on its win. On all three of those conversions, it was Williams or Rettig rushing up the middle. And on two of those conversions, Williams got the ball in third-and-long downs that he admitted were “usually not running situations.” But BC ran Williams in any and every situation.
On the drive that sealed the game, the common thread appeared again. The formula to beat Syracuse. The formula that was displayed on the stat sheet. It was a formula that Williams and the rest of the Eagles knew all too well. “We ran the same plays over and over again,” Williams said. “They were wearing down at the end of the second quarter.” bplogiur@ syr.edu

After early adjustments, Orange cruises by New Hampshire By Michael Cohen ASST. COPY EDITOR
New Hampshire’s Denise Beliveau caught the ball at the free-throw line early in the first half against Syracuse Monday. She turned, fired and buried a 15-foot jump shot from the middle of the Orange defense. Along the SU sideline, SYRACUSE 87 Quentin Hillsman clapped NEW HAMPSHIRE 46 his hands and bellowed the words “no high post” as his team retreated down the court. Syracuse’s head coach could only shake his head in frustration as his team broke one the most basic defensive principles for the fi fth time in the first half. “That’s one of our zone’s principles is not letting the ball get to the high post,” he said. “I was quite shocked how many times they got the ball there because that’s something we normally do a very good job of. I was really kind of taken aside by that.” In the opening minutes of Monday’s 87-46 win against New Hampshire, the visiting Wildcats exploited the middle of the Syracuse (4-0) defense. The offense ran through the hands of
New Hampshire’s (1-4) interior players, who continually flashed to the free-throw line to receive passes. But it took fewer than nine minutes for the Orange defense to adjust, taking away the Wildcats’ only consistent attack and blowing the game open in front of 1,014 at the Carrier Dome. With New Hampshire’s post players catching the ball at the free-throw line, it gave the offense a two-headed attack early on. On two of the team’s early possessions, Jill McDonald and Kate Early each turned and buried a 15-foot jump shot. But subsequent possessions saw the Wildcats’ bigs turn and kick the ball out the perimeter for open 3-point attempts. Ten of the team’s first 16 points came on baskets assisted by passes from the free-throw line. The Wildcats hit four consecutive 3-point baskets and jumped out to a 16-11 lead less than seven minutes into the game. “They were bringing players from different areas (to the high post),” SU senior guard Erica Morrow said. “There is a lot of communication that comes from our forwards and our center also, because our (the guards’) backs are
turned.” But once that communication was improved, the tide of the game changed completely. On New Hampshire’s first possession after a media timeout midway through the first half, SU guard Tasha Harris slid in behind the Wildcats’ cutter. When McDonald caught the ball, she couldn’t turn. The offense stalled, and SU forced a shotclock violation. After UNH held that 16-11 advantage, it made just three field goals over the final 11-plus minutes of the first half. The team began 4-of-10 from the 3-point range but finished the half just 1-of-8. “We just made a conscious effort to not give them open looks,” Hillsman said. “It just becomes a point of us locking things down.” Part of the Wildcats’ early success was due to an element of surprise. After watching tape of all four of UNH’s prior games this season, Hillsman said its offense was drastically different to open Monday’s game. New Hampshire set screens in different areas and brought players who were cutting to the high post from new spots on the floor.
Once the SU defense became aware, UNH’s entire attack was neutralized. After falling behind 16-11 early, the Orange outscored the Wildcats 31-7 for the rest of the first half. Later in the contest, that advantage had extended to 43 at one point. One simple adjustment to take away the freethrow line changed the entire complexion of the game. That’s why it’s one of the zone’s basic principles. “If we take away the high post and box out,” Harris said, “then we’ll win the game by 30 or 40 points.” SU did just that. The Wildcats managed only 10 points in the paint throughout the game and finished at a 28 percent clip from beyond the arc. The ability to dump the ball down low or set up 3-point shooters was gone, and so was New Hampshire’s chance to win the game. “If you take that high post away, it usually shuts down most offenses,” SU center Kayla Alexander said. “Take away the high post, 3-point shooters and rebound — that’s an easy way to get a win.” email@example.com
Despite blowout victory, Hillsman sends message to SU’s starting ﬁve By Zach Brown STAFF WRITER
Even with his team up by 21 early in the second half, Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman was unhappy. He said he had just talked to his players about their hustle at halftime. But they apparently didn’t get the message coming out of the break. After two consecutive offensive rebounds by New Hampshire on its third possession of the half, Hillsman snapped. He unloaded the bench. Out came starters Elashier Hall and Iasia Hemingway. Out came senior guards Erica Morrow and Tasha Harris. And out came the Orange’s leading scorer in Kayla Alexander. Despite SU’s 87-46 demolition of New Hampshire in a game that was all but over by halftime, Hillsman did not take his foot off the brakes with regards to his coaching. He wanted more hustle out of his team, and when the first team did not give it to him, the coach didn’t hesitate to yank them off the court. He sent a message to his team that lack of hustle would not be tolerated, no matter the situation. “(The score) doesn’t matter to me,” he said when asked if the big lead affected his decision

to pull the starters. “We can’t get outhustled, and we can’t let people get 50-50 (balls).” All five of the Orange first-teamers have been with Hillsman since last season. They have come to understand that a mistake on the court leads to a brief benching. Harris said it has been consistent throughout her four years at SU. Morrow said the group didn’t need Hillsman to say anything as they came to the bench. They already understood. “He didn’t say anything,” Morrow said. “It was more of, we already knew.” But just in case they didn’t quite understand, Hillsman got his point across. As the second team executed the ensuing inbounds pass, the coach crouched down, turned to his bench and said, “Seriously, y’all, that is a joke,” before turning back to watch the action. The mass substitution took place with 17:20 left in the game. The starters sat on the bench and watched while the subs kept the big lead for the next two minutes. It was a brief reprimand for the first team, but they appeared to get the message. “It’s one thing you don’t want, to sit on the bench,” Harris said. “You know what you’re supposed to do. I just tell myself I just have to play hard to get to the assignments. It’s go as hard as you can go.” After returning to the game, Hemingway was fouled and got to the free-throw line. She made the first free throw, but her second shot went in and out. Hall chased down the rebound in the corner, falling out of bounds to keep it in play. The Orange gained possession and worked the ball to Alexander in the post. She missed from close range, but Hall came flying back into the play to clean up the glass and score the bucket for SU. Four of the starters returned to the bench by the end of the game, but for a different reason. Syracuse ran away to a 41-point victory, its third win by 40 or more points this year, and Hillsman got his bench players some extra playing time in the closing minutes. But even with the big margin, his players know that a mistake on the court equals a trip to the bench. “He makes a conscious effort of if you made a mistake, letting you know you made a mistake, sit you down and figure it out,” Harris said. For Hillsman, one of those mistakes he does
not tolerate is the one his starters committed early in the second half. The Orange did not hustle to a loose ball. And although the game was already well in hand, Hillsman wasn’t going to let it go unaddressed.
“That’s just a hustle play,” he said. “And our kids really compete, and our kids really play hard so that’s uncharacteristic for a team to get that many team rebounds against us.” firstname.lastname@example.org

the tournament’s championship game Saturday in front of 5,271 at Boardwalk Hall. SU (6-0) propelled itself to victory offensively, thanks to a shooting clinic in the second half that produced 42 points. Rick Jackson won the tournament’s MVP award with 26 combined rebounds in two wins. Oliver’s time on the bench proved to be the turning point SU needed Saturday. It wasn’t easy, though. After two Syracuse turnovers following Oliver’s exit, the Orange increased its lead from two to 13 with 8:39 left in the game. SU clamped down on Oliver when he returned. “I did sense that they were definitely keying in on me,” Oliver said. The win came despite a Yellow Jackets shooting clinic that dominated the first half. It was a clinic that Oliver extended into the second half by himself. In the first half, Oliver torched a laid-back SU 2-3 zone for 7-of-13 shooting from the field, including 4-of-7 from beyond the arc. His lights-out performance helped the Yellow Jackets to 56 percent shooting in the half. After Oliver scored the first
“We got the bench players to chip in for us and score double digits.”
bucket, Georgia Tech led for all but nine seconds of the first half, with no lead changes or ties. That was until Orange freshman C.J. Fair connected on a 3-pointer with nine seconds left in the half. The jumper gave SU a 38-36 lead. It foreshadowed what would come in the second half. And it also sent the Boardwalk Hall crowd into a frenzy. Kris Joseph led the Orange to the win and countered Oliver’s performance with a teamhigh 19 points. Both players were selected to the All-Tournament team. Because of three first-half fouls, though, Joseph couldn’t carry the Orange. Rather, SU freshman Dion Waiters took charge. While Oliver’s unconscious shooting kept the Yellow Jackets with a lead throughout the half, Waiters was the answer that kept SU in the game. He started the game 4-of-4 from the field, mostly on deep jumpers he wasn’t afraid to create on his own. He finished with 13 points.
With Waiters putting SU’s scoring needs on himself, combined with Joseph and others’ second-half showcase, SU finally put together an offensive performance Boeheim said was needed all year. One Joseph even said was a perfect 10 out of 10. “We got the bench players to chip in for us and score double digits,” Joseph said. The offense was drawn out because of Oliver’s offensive performance. He would end the game with 32 of Georgia Tech’s 76 points, the last of which came on a deep two to bring the Yellow Jackets within five points with less than three minutes to go. But it was too late. The dry spell stemming from his seat on the bench was too much. And the final exit music — the real exit music for Oliver and Georgia Tech — came in the next possession. With 1:58 left, Scoop Jardine threw an alley-oop to Rick Jackson. It was the dagger that got Orange fans standing and roaring once more. Once again they knew: too little Oliver too late. “We were trying to make him a playmaker instead of a shooter,” Jardine said. “Just run him off the spot. And we kind of did that late in the game. Get him uncomfortable.” email@example.com

SAME OLD STORY
SU needs to fix offense heading into bowl game andrew l. john
sean harp | staff photographer andre williams (34) runs through a gap in the Syracuse defense Saturday. Boston College’s freshman running back powered through those gaps all game, torching SU to the tune of 185 yards and a touchdown on 42 carries. He led the Eagles to a 16-7 win over the Orange.
Orange edged by Williams, BC rushing attack in regular-season finale By Brett LoGiurato

oug Marrone held up the stat sheet from Syracuse’s loss to Boston College Saturday. To the SU head coach, this sheet was a microcosm of the formula that has led to four straight home losses for the Orange. And the formula ends with one common thread. “We haven’t stopped people from running the football,” Marrone said.
Saturday, Syracuse failed to do so again. Time after time, in one crucial situation after another, Andre Williams exposed the recurring flaw in the Syracuse defense. Williams, Boston College’s freshman running back, led the Eagles’ offense. His methodical churning led to long drives and a huge time-of-possession advantage for BC. It all eventually led to a 16-7 Boston College victory. In its regular-season finale in front of 42,191

or a single five-and-a-half minute stretch Saturday, Syracuse fans were shown a glimpse of what they’ve been missing seemingly all season. For that one little blip, the Orange offense cruised down the field en route to a 12-play, 80-yard touchdown drive that could have easily added to the frustration of SU’s largest home crowd of the season. Frustration because of how well the Orange has performed at various times this season, but without a hint of consistency. During those 12 plays, quarterback Ryan Nassib efficiently ran the offense, hitting on all five of his passing attempts for 57 yards. Antwon Bailey ran for 31 yards and SU’s only touchdown. It was a sight rarely beheld by the Carrier Dome crowd this season, especially during the final stretch of the season. All this despite not having starting running back Delone Carter available, as he stood banged up on the sidelines for the second half. It was the proverbial “Where has this been?” moment for the Orange during its final stretch of the regular season. The results of the last four games have been evidence for Syracuse. Three losses, only four touchdowns

TURN ON THE LIGHTS: SU claims Legends Classic title By Tony Olivero
Asst. Sports Editor
TLANTIC CITY, N.J. –– With its raucous ovation, the Orange-laden Boardwalk Hall crowd provided the exit music. An exit, albeit a brief one, it was syracuse 80 starving for all georgia tech 76 day.
It was exit music for Brian Oliver. The Syracuse partisans who hissed and booed all game knew: This was also the chance for the exit music of Georgia Tech’s chances to win the Legends Classic. “We just had to somehow get a handle on Oliver,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “It took us 30 minutes
to do it.” The scorching Georgia Tech shooter lit up Atlantic City for 26 points with SU up two at the 14:40 mark of the second half. But because Oliver picked up his third foul, Georgia Tech head coach Paul Hewitt relegated Oliver to the bench. His stay would only last two minutes. But it was enough.
The two minutes cooled off the star of the show. From there, Syracuse and its fans knew there was nothing stopping SU from victory. For the rest of the game, Oliver scored only six points, and No. 8 Syracuse defeated Georgia Tech 80-76 in
