Homeless to Harrisburg: One Cosi robber caught, two at large The FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office may Student runs for Pa. House choose to ultimately take the case Dafan Zhang’s campaign to focus on STEM education BY SAMUEL BYERS Staff Writer

DAFAN ZHANG

The law student is making his bid for a seat the State Senate

A Pen n L aw student who was once homeless is running for state representative. Dafan Zhang, who will graduate f rom the Law School this spring, entered a three-way race for t he Demo cratic nomination to be a Delaware County state representative this week. Zhang also holds a master’s

degree in public administration from the University. Zhang wants his campaign to focus on education and believes strengthening existing public school systems and ensuring they are well funded is important. He disagrees with proposals for more charter schools and voucher programs that “just bring more chaos to the education system.” As an immigrant, Zhang came to the United States from China to attend high school, but dropped out prior to graduating. He spent several years without a steady job and a period of time homeless during which he would sometimes stay on the streets around Penn’s campus. Eventually, he earned a GED in Philadelphia and went on to attend West Chester University for his unSEE REPRESENTATIVE PAGE 6

Ramon Martinez is charged with robbing two Cosi restaurants in Phila., one on campus at 38th and Walnut Streets and one in Center City.

A suspect in December’s Cosi armed robbery on campus has been arrested and charged. Ramon Martinez, 28, is currently charged in Pennsylvania with 18 counts of robbery for three separate instances that occurred at this and another Philadelphia Cosi restaurant. He is also a suspect in the January robbery of an IHOP in Burlington, New Jersey, Vice President for Public Safety Maureen Rush said. Arrest warrants have been issued for the two other suspects, Rush added. Police believe that the four robberies were related because they shared similar characteristics. All four occurred at gunpoint, and each of them took place at around 7 a.m. Additionally, the descriptions of the suspects from the four offenses matched, and the robbers sought cash in all four incidents. Rush added that the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office might become involved in the case due to legal issues that could arise from the three suspects allegedly robbing stores in two states.

Millions join Cousera courses, but do they stay? As required work increases, the percentage of completion drops off BY FOLA ONIFADE Staff Writer A new study by the Graduate School of Education reveals that completing MOOCs remains a lofty goal for many registered students. In April 2012, Penn announced a partnership with Coursera, a startup which offers MOOCs, free online classes open to everyone. At the time, administrators praised the courses, arguing that they made a Penn education accessible on a global scale. However, according to GSE’s

research, user engagement drops significantly after the first two weeks of a course — very few users keep taking quizzes and completing homework. The team tracked one million users who enrolled in 17 firstgeneration Coursera courses taught by Penn faculty from June 2012 to June 2013. Courses ranged from “Introduction to Operations Management” and “Principles of Microeconomics” to “Greek and Roman Mythology.” Variations in course orientation, structure and approach produced a wide range of results in research findings, according to the presentation presented by GSE professor and principal investigator Laura Perna. “We try to understand how students are engaged in these

ROBBERY from page 1 The FBI could not be reached for a comment for this story. The first armed robbery in Philadelphia occurred on Dec. 3, when the Cosi cafe at 15th and Locust streets in Center City was robbed. The second robbery occurred on Dec. 9 at Penn’s Cosi, and prompted a UPennAlert at the time. Then on Dec. 24, the Center City Cosi was robbed for the second time in less than a month. On Jan. 2, an IHOP in Burlington, New Jersey was robbed by the suspects who police believe committed all four robberies, Rush said. Martinez, who was arrested on Jan. 4, will next appear in court on Feb. 14 for a preliminary hearing. Staff writer Cosette Gastelu contributed reporting.

New MERT chief aims to raise awareness College junior Grace Kunas hopes to improve MERT’s relationship with the Phila. Fire Dept. BY ALEX GETSOS Staff Writer Radioing to the dispatcher, checking equipment, charting calls, speaking to the incoming freshman during New Student Orientation and regularly running meetings — these are just some of the many duties of new Medical Emergency Response Team Chief Grace Kunas, a College junior. Kunas was recently elected chief of MERT, an organization which has around 70 act ive member s, is i n operation from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. seven days a week and requires each of its members to perform a minimum of 24 hours of service every month. MERT works directly with a number of groups on campus, including the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, the University administration and the Division of Public Safety. The Daily Pennsylvanian sat down with Kunas to talk about her goals for MERT this year. The Daily Pennsylvaninan : Why did you decide to run for chief? Grace Kunas: I decided to run because it gave me an opportunity to form relations outside the organization. I was the operations lieutenant last year, so it was more focused internally. I’m more directly involved in clinical advancement, reviewing every call that MERT receives and quality assurance. [Being] chief gives me the opp or t u n it y t o be i nvolved ex t er na l ly a nd meet t he Penn administration. DP: What are your goals for the upcoming year? GK: Last year one of our

goals was to promote outreach with other organizations, and this is something I want to continue. I want to continue building a relationship with the Philadelphia F i r e D epa r t ment , wh ic h oversees … [the] transporting [of ] our patients. I also want to have a speaker series and partner with other groups such as Penn Undergraduate Health Coalition.

We’re going to establish committees to help disseminate to the general body and have space for general body members to take the initiatives they have and do what they want to do with them. DP: Based on the recent survey [conducted by MERT, which showed that ma ny students don’t know how to contact MERT ], what are you going to do to improve awareness regarding MERT on campus? GK : O ne of ou r b oa r d members has done a poster campaign, so we want to revitalize that to get our number and name out there. We [are] also developing an app that would help people reach MERT faster and easier. We also have a board member dedicated to maintaining our new social media.

Un-muzzling the Wolf REAL TALK | Admiring the Wolf of Wall Street isn’t necessarily a moral failing

“T

he Wolf of Wall St r e et c ou ld make a blind m a n se e.” One of my high school teammates recently tweeted this message, and judging by the number of favorites the tweet got, many men share the sentiment. Even for those who do not fully believe in magical healing powers, it would be outrageous to say that they do not feel at least some degree of admiration for the unbelievable lifestyle of the Wolf. I, for one, turned to my friend several times while watching the movie and told him that I am going to be just like Dicaprio’s character when I grow up. Beautiful women, inane quantities of money, endless surges of endorphins and perhaps some Icona Pop blaring in the background — what more could a

guy want? I can already hear the vicious, self-righteous criticism coming at me in vast telepathic waves. How could a Penn student, who should be educ at ed , i nt el l igent , and socially-aware, express such back wards, immoral thoughts? Surely this columnist is avaricious, misogynistic and above all, a prick. My respectful response to the critics: Get off your high horses, please. I am none of the above. As much as I disapprove of people who are actually like that, I really do not appreciate hy pocrites who delude themselves into believing they do not have the occasional moral blip in their thoughts. Self-awareness and honesty are the first steps to being a good person, and most people are not angels whose every thought is a mix of liquid gold and virtue, including

you critics. Such thoughts merely reveal our imaginations, whereas actual actions reveal our true characters. When men, especially those with great ambition and other alpha tendencies, see figures in pop culture like the Wolf, they feel a twinge of envy. This is okay. A real life example is the Instagram following of Dan Bilzerian, who has of late garnered much publicity for his apparent daredevil lifestyle of drugs, women and poker. Last week, I sat in my buddy’s basement, and we looked through Bilzerian’s pictures for over half an hour. Indeed, we admired the snapshots of his life, but we also recognized the absolute lunacy of it. Yes, there are people whose moral blips in their heads become actions. But in reality, the proportion that actually desires and pursues such

lifestyles is minuscule. Those who do are either inherently evil or, more commonly, corrupted by extreme ambition and money. On a moral compass ranging from the Dalai Lama to Stephen A. Cohen (insider trading whiz and fellow Wharton alum, god bless), I believe that most of us draw ethical lines where our decisions can negatively impact other people, especially our loved ones. Perhaps I am being naive and giving people too much credit, but I think most men agree with me. As much as I would love to manage a $15 billion hedge fund like Cohen, I would not enjoy a criminal investigation that results in billions of dollars in reparations. Similarly, the Wolf predictably loses his family and serves time in jail. Bilzerian had had three heart attacks by the ripe young age of 30.

Props to him for surviving, though.

‘‘

There is no harm in admiring [people like the Wolf] for the entertainment value.”

The point is, we should not have to take ourselves so seriously and constantly have to think like Jesus. I understand people like the Wolf should not be idolized because it could encourage bad behavior, but there is no harm in admiring them for the entertainment value. Actions define us more than anything. If someone has cowardly thoughts but acts courageously, then that person

JOHN BYON is courageous. If someone fantasizes a little about living like the Most Interesting Man in the World but acts like the mostly good human being that he or she is, then that person is a mostly good human being. It is unfair to judge a man based on factors that are much less meaningful. As for all you self-righteous people, I apologize because this column itself is self-righteous. But I don’t care, I love it. JOHN BYON is a Wharton freshman from Ridgewood, N.J. His email address is byon34@ gmail.com Follow him @johnnybyonny.

his last winter break was my last as an undergraduate. This means that I spent approximately half of my time obsessively checking for those lovely CITsender emails and the rest of it crying into my laptop while bookmarking LinkedIn, Glassdoor and Bookjobs. com. Being an English major has its benefits — classes are rarely curved, you learn how to read Anna Karenina in a weekend and sometimes the only homework is watching a Woody Allen movie. This winter break, though, has been a montage of the low moments. So, while I was glad not to have to traipse through the snow in a lady-suit for OCR, the hours I spent browsing Tumblr for shirtless pictures of Chris Evans instead had a real consequence: I don’t have a job secured for after I graduate. In addition to stressing about this fact, I also had

the added benefit that winter break brings. It’s the time of year when holiday cards arrive in the mail and carolers visit unexpectedly — and when relatives ask, “So, what are you plans for after graduation?” This is a question no one should ask. It should be illegal. In fact, I’m fairly certain it’s covered by the first line of the Declaration of Independence. Maybe a potential employer could ask this during an interview; perhaps a college adviser may broach the subject. Otherwise, I strongly believe that no English major should ever be expected to answer this question. I’m sure this isn’t a problem specific to my major. In fact, I’m fairly certain that all relatives have a pre-prepared list of questions to ask at each age, and this is just one of them. At 17, they ask you about SAT scores. The next year, it’s all about early decision and safety schools.

I’m fairly certain if I met my celebrity idol Robert Downey Jr., he would shake my hand, sign the lunchbox I have with his face on it and then ask me, ‘So, Sara, what are your post-graduation plans?’” But now that I’m a senior, there’s a new conversation topic, and it’s much more powerful than, “Hey, how are you enjoying your classes?” Relatives innately gravitate toward this power. After a few weeks of hearing the question from everyone as soon as they removed their coats and wiped the snow from their boots, I’m feeling haunted by it. I’m fairly certain if I met my celebrity idol Robert Downey Jr., he would shake my

So, in the interest of helping myself — and others — I’m compiling a list of possible responses when asked this dreaded question. 1. Convince your family and friends that you have gotten a job as an agent at a security firm and all the details of your job are now classified. Instead of lying, you can simply say, “I’m not at liberty to say” or “That’s need-to-know.” To make this more convincing, occasionally hold your finger

to your ear and nod as though receiving a secret communication via some sort of earbud. 2. Calmly explain that you’ve decided to repeat all four years of college, this time recreating Harry Potter’s class schedule, substituting Chemistry for Potions and so on. If pressed, inquire as to whether your relatives would be willing to donate some money to your Quidditch fund, as you’d like to purchase the Nimbus 2013. Begin referring to them as “muggles” and put on a bad British accent. 3. Respond that you are planning on becoming a fulltime hobo. The hours are terrible, and there’s no dental, but you’ve heard that it’s fairly easy to get that coveted corner office. 4. Make loud noises like a parakeet until they stop asking.

Zhang is facing two others, including the incumbent REPRESENTATIVE from page 1

dergraduate degree. Zhang said that he is running for public office in part because he wants to help young people in his community succeed as he has. “Everything has worked out well for me in the last few years. I decided that if I can … achieve success, I can also help others achieve the same,” he said. In particular, Zhang is advocating for more funding for practical education programs and activities such as music, athletics and the arts in public schools. He says these extracurriculars “are the sorts of things that can enrich a young person’s life and give them perspectives outside the classroom and make them successful adults.” He hopes to see Pennsylvania and local communities “focus on investing in human capital, in our residents and in our children by having a more practical, broad and diverse education.”

Right now, Zhang is developing policy proposals centered on what he calls “practical STEM” education — vocational programs that teach high school students marketable skills. He is modeling the proposal on a similar partnership program between the William Penn School District and Delaware County Community College, where Zhang teaches information technology and paralegal studies courses. Zhang’s opponents are also focused on education. Attorney and former Lansdowne Councilperson Billy J. Smith has criticized incumbent Margo Davidson’s voting record on education issues, saying that as a product of the Philadelphia public school system, he feels obligated to do what he can to ensure that public schools in the Philadelphia area are fully funded and that there is a “public discussion that leads to some progress

for students in what has been coined a ‘failing district.’” “I credit all that I am and all that I’ve become to a series of mentors — many of them public school teachers — throughout the course of my life,” Smith said. “I wouldn’t turn my back on them because they didn’t turn their backs on me when I was in public school in Philadelphia.” Davidson, who has held the contested seat since 2011, has defended her record. She has cited $3 million of state funding she secured for the Upper Darby School District as well as $1 million she secured for the William Penn School district. Remembering the time he spent homeless on the streets of West Philadelphia, Zhang says he never could have imagined where his life would take him. Years before he enrolled at Penn Law, “I used to come to campus and hang out, [but] I always worried that I would be kicked out,” he said. Today, he wants to pass on the success he has gained through education to young people in Delaware County. “I really appreciate the opportunity that Penn gave me,” he said.

Those who are trained this summer must agree to work 10 to 15 hours per week at FactCheck.org during the fall and spring semesters, if their work merits continued employment. The fellows at FactCheck.org help our staff monitor the factual accuracy of claims made by political figures in TV ads, debates, speeches, interviews and news releases. They help conduct research on such claims and contribute to articles for publication on our website under the supervision of FactCheck.org staff. The fellows must have an ability to write clearly and concisely, an understanding of journalistic practices and ethics, and an interest in politics and public policy. The fellows also must be able to think independently and set aside any partisan biases. If you are interested, please submit your resume and two writing samples by the Feb. 7 deadline to FactCheck.org Director Eugene Kiely at eugene.kiely@factcheck.org.

Pen n’s newest soror it y launched its recr uitment plans this week. Following up from its fall marketing events, the Alpha Delta P i colony has been reaching out to the Penn c o m mu n i t y t o f i n d n e w members for the sorority. ADPi’s move to campus is in line with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life’s aim to expand Greek life on campus, Director of OFSL Scott Reikofski said. A DP i L e ader sh ip Con sultant K atie Schaller expla i ned t hat t he soror it y would give older students pr ev iously u n i nvolved i n Greek life new chances to join, as ADPi will be recruiting from all class levels. “A lot of times we draw women who have not considered joining a sorority in the past,” Schaller said. A DPi has been contacting student organizations outside of the Greek community to arrange talks at their meetings. Schaller said the sorority is open to any women who “want to get involved and try something new.” T h e s o r o r it y h a s a l s o been working closely with the Greek community. Last week , A DP i sent out ice cream party starter packs to all sororities and, speaking at Tuesday night’s recr uitment convocation in Irvine Auditorium, Schaller took care to emphasize that “we’re not tr ying to steal women.” She told The Daily Pennsylvanian that ADPi wants “ t o b e a f r iend t o t hese women” as “all soror ities are founded on similar principles.” After the colony becomes fully established, she hopes areas of joint sisterhood can be arranged, such as co-organized philanthropy events.

Recruits would then work to build the infrastructure of t he sor or it y, S c h a l ler outlined. ADPi does not yet have a house, but according to Schaller, this is some thing it hopes to address after recruiting its members. Wharton freshman Madison Moskow ite, who is participating in formal recr uitment this week , said after convocation on Tuesday that she thought it was “really great and exciting” that a new sorority was coming to Penn. R ei kof sk i , who d i r e c t s OFSL, estimated that ADP i’s upt a ke would be be tween 150 and 175 women this year. He added that the overall number of women look i ng to joi n soror ities this semester has increased from last year. ADPi expanded into four new universities last year, including the University of Mississippi, which saw the creation of a chapter with 300 members. Penn makes up one of the four into which the soror ity is expanding this year. ADPi is Penn’s ninth sorority, but Reikofski hopes that by bringing in a new sorority every two or three years, the total number can reach 15. Penn’s sororities are “too big,” Reikofsky said, and he hopes t hat by i ncreasi ng their number, their relative sizes will decrease. This will also address difficulties that arise in sorority life, he said, such as f inding space for chapter meetings, among other issues.

For new College Republicans president, bipartisanship is key College Junior Anthony Cruz was elected president at the end of last semester BY SAMUEL BYERS Staff Writer College junior A nthony Cruz was elected president of Penn College Republicans last month. The former Democratic congressional intern, who supports bipartisan dialogue, wants to bring more Republican speakers to campus this year. The Daily Pennsylvanian sat down with Cruz to talk about his plans for the coming year. The Daily Pennsylvanian: How did you first get involved in the College Republicans? Anthony Cruz: I first got involved in not only College Republicans but also general Penn political life at NSO my freshman year. There was an NSO event held — a kind of quizzo night — and that’s where I first met members of the College Republicans, and Dems as well. That’s when the College Republicans asked me to come on as a freshman representative because they saw how I was very enthusiastic about politics.

DP: What made you want to run for President? AC: I was a freshman representative my f reshman year, and for the last two years [I’ve ser ved] as the political director. I thought … with my leadership and experience here I should do my best to have a fair balance of political views between Republicans and Democrats. I should also mention that I am the co-chair of the Penn Political Coalition, [which is] the umbrella group for all political groups on campus … I’m really trying to help in my capacity as co-chair and as president of the College Republicans to encourage political activism on campus and work with the administration. DP: Do you have any plans for activism and events this year? What things do you want to see the College Republicans do? AC: Definitely. We have some speakers planned. Obviously nothing’s official until it happens, but former Pennsylvania Gov. Mark Schweiker, who served from ’01 to ’03, has agreed to come in February. Former Congressman Mike Oxley who was responsible for the Sarbanes-Oxley Bill of 2002, a monumental financial services reform —

Yolanda Chen/News Photo Editor-Elect

College junior and College Republicans President Anthony Cruz also served as a freshman representative and the political director — a posititon he held for two years — for the group. Cruz is also the co-chair of the Penn Political Coalition. I’m sure that it will attract interest from the Wharton School. Other Congressmen in the area we’re still waiting on. DP: What is one issue you want the College Republicans to focus on this year? AC: That’s a good question. I think the stereotypical college student says they’re fiscally conservative and socially liberal, as I am myself, and we always like to focus on fiscal issues, and I think that that really resonates with many students here at Penn

and there’s controversy right now in Washington about how the economic numbers look. DP: Going back to you, how

politically active were you before coming to Penn? AC: I tried to be. I volunteered in 2009 … for Mayor Bloomberg’s re-election cam-

paign [in New York]. I also interned for my congressman, Eliot Engel , who is actually a Democrat. I get along with Democrats and Republicans both. It’s unfortunate that in today’s political environment it’s almost like a taboo to be [seen as] working for the other side, or even just to be friendly with them. Some of my Republican colleagues may ask me, ‘ You worked for Democrats?’ And I say, ‘Yes, I did work for a Democrat, and I still visit the office and I have the highest respect for them.’ There’s such a thing as good Democrats and good Republicans from both sides — that’s my philosophy. I’m a liberal Republican from New York; you could even say I’m a moderate Democrat almost. God forbid someone says that today in Washington, but that’s the truth for me: I work with both sides.

Villanova came roaring back though, and its spread offense tied the game at 42 apiece w ith 11:50 to play. The Wildcats slowly built up a lead that they struggled to hold on to, but managed to get key defensive stops on two straight Penn possessions. “We were coming at them and getting good offensive looks, but they were coming back at us,” McCullough said. “It was just a highenergy second half, and we played down to the wire. It was a good atmosphere.” Before the f inal possession, the Red and Blue fought back for a final time, taking a 54-53 lead with two minutes left in the contest. But Villanova turned to

sophomore guard Katherine Coyer, who hit a jumper that would decide the game. The Wildcats were reliant on Coyer and her twin sister Caroline throughout the game. Coming of f the bench, the duo combined for 28 points on 12-for-20 shooting, helping Villanova overcome Penn’s early second half lead. Baron led the R ed and Blue with 16 points and nine rebounds, but shot just 7-for20 for the contest while Penn was unable to keep up with the Wildcats’ three-pointers. The Quakers ended up shooting only 3-for-17 from beyond the arc. Penn will face St. Joseph’s (12- 4, 2- 0 Big 5) Friday at Hagan Arena in a must-win for Penn if it hopes to keep its Big 5 title hopes alive. The Hawks have already defeated Temple and Villanova this year. “ I t h i n k we [w i l l] t a ke i t o n e s t e p a t a t i m e ,” McLaughlin said. “I thought coming off Saturday and not playing well … we scored a little bit of confidence. “If we play the right way, we have the opportunity [to win]. I’m certainly proud of this group tonight.”

In what could have been an historic victory for the Penn women’s basketball team against Villanova, senior Alyssa Baron led the Quakers with 16 points. Despite a near-double double, Baron missed all seven of her three-point attempts, and missed a runner with under ten seconds left that could have won the game for Penn. www.allcitystorage.com 5500 Sansom Street 215.471.1002

THE DAILY PENNSYLVANIAN

Doubleheader serves as Big 5 flashback

anyone who knows Philadelphia college hoops history that Penn used to run this town. That moment in Big 5 history has passed. Penn is no longer the king, or a jack for that matter. Due to sponsorship deals and television contracts, the athletic directors at the other universities in the Big 5 have renovated their own arenas, moving away from the days when Big 5 basketball started and ended at the Palestra. So enjoy this upcoming Saturday. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky enough to be attending GameDay in the morning, or either of the games in the afternoon, cherish the opportunity. Four hours may seem like a long time for a sermon, but those floorboards, those seats and those backboards have seen a lot, and they have wisdom to impart.

PHILLIPS from page 16 ibility of playing four tough teams on their schedule, which is automatically one of the toughest in the Ivy League just from those contests. But more importantly, Penn needs it to maintain the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relevant mystique. Having every game at the Palestra gave the arena an aura that it still carries to this day, which ultimately earned it its nickname as the Cathedral. Pl ay i ng t he ga mes on Pennâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campus connected the Quakers to the quality of play that existed throughout the Big 5. While the likelihood of the Red and Blue ever making another Final Four is slim to none, keeping those opponents on the schedule still serves as a reminder to

It will be just like old times at the Palestra on Saturday as there will be two Big 5 games gracing the arenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s floors. In addition to the presence of College GameDay coming to the historic arena, a day full of basketball will start with a Temple-La Salle matchup at noon followed by Penn facing St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at 7 p.m.

Jordan was named both first team All-Ivy and first team All-Big 5 in 1998, 1999 and 2000. In 2000, a season in which he led the Quakers to the second of back-to-back titles, Jordan won the Big 5 â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;s Cy K aselman Award, an honor given to the Big 5 athlete with the highest free-throw percentage. The former Penn guard finished 3-7 in Big 5 matchups in his career. Jordan is one of four individuals connected to the Big 5 to be inducted this year. The others are former St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shooting guard Pat Carroll, La Salle womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball player Crista Ricketts a nd med i a member Dick â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hoopsâ&#x20AC;? Weiss. Jordan w ill be the 24th former Penn menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball player to be inducted into the Big 5 Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will take place in mid-April at the Palestra.

THE BUZZ: ROUNDTABLE

What was the best moment of winter break?

BY DP SPORTS EDITORS

From The Daily Pennsylvanian’s sports blog, THE BUZZ While Penn men’s basketball’s victory over Princeton on Saturday was a seasonchanging upset, there were some other big moments from Penn Athletics over the break. From game-winning jumpers to big upsets to even bigger blowouts, Penn’s winter sports found success in some impressive ways. Our sports editors debate what the best moment was for the Red and Blue during each team’s winter break slate. Sports Editor Ian Wenik: This question has a pretty simple answer to me: women’s basketball. No other Penn team has picked up a signature win quite like the Quakers’ New Years Day triumph over Miami in Coral Gables. Not only was it the team’s first-ever victory over an ACC school, it was a validation of Mike McLaughlin’s coaching philosophy. He has built this program essentially from the ground up. To pick up a win over a BCS school — especially in the women’s game, where talent differences between majors and mid-majors are normally stark — in a fashion as dramatic as junior forward Katy Allen’s game-winning layup, is a tremendous momentum booster heading into Ivy weekends and should stand as a hallmark moment for years to come. The performance was particularly impressive given the Quakers’ ability to overcome adversity. The team had a double-digit lead going into halftime and fell behind late in the second half, but found a way to still get the signature victory. Senior Sports Editor-elect Steven Tydings: While the Miami win was big for the women’s hoops squad, there is another victory for the Quakers that is under appreciated. On Dec. 21, a year since their

27-point defeat at the hands of Drexel, the Red and Blue defeated the very same Dragons squad. At the beginning of the game, it looked like it was more of the same as Penn fell down by 19 points in the opening half. But thanks to a 14-point, 19-rebound effort from freshman sensation Sydney Stipanovich, the Quakers made it a game and slowly came back against the Dragons. On their home floor, Penn completed the comeback, tying the game up late thanks to Stipanovich and a 4-for-6 shooting performance from junior guard Kathleen Roche. And as is often the case for Penn’s close victories over the last few seasons, the game came down to a final shot by Michele Ozer/Sports Photo Editor-elect senior captain Alyssa Baron, who drained the game-winning Freshman center Sydney Stipanovich was instrumental to the Quakers’ 46-44 victory over Drexel on Dec. 21. Penn fell behind by 19 points in the game but jumper to complete the biggest Stipanovich’s 14-point, 19-rebound effort led the squad back against the Dragons, setting up for senior captain Alyssa Baron’s game-winning jumper. comeback in program history. Sports Editor-elect Riley Steele: It’s impossible to disagree with how important the women’s basketball team’s victories were over winter break. But I think the best moment of the layoff had to be from one of the best Penn teams that not enough people talk about: women’s squash. Entering an Ivy weekend doubleheader, the Quakers hadn’t played in six weeks. All the Red and Blue did was come out and sweep Dartmouth to pick up their 12th consecutive victory over the Big Green. Freshman Anaka Alankamony played in the No. 1 position for the first time in her young career, and the results were stellar. Despite a loss the following day to reigning Ivy champ Harvard, the match was tight throughout, and the Dartmouth win seems to have set up the No. 3 ranked Courtesy of Hunter Martin/Penn Athletics Quakers for a successful run through the Ancient Eight this Sophomore Yan Xin Tan notched a victory in her match against Dartmouth, helping Penn to a 9-0 win over the Big Green. However, both Tan and the Red and Blue would fall in their final matchup in their winter break slate, losing to No. 1 Harvard on Sunday. The Harvard loss was Penn’s first of the 2013-14 campaign. season.

tudents will wake up this Saturday morning, in spite of whatever events of the night before that they may or may not remember, drape themselves in their lucky shirts and begin their journey. The fans will pour into subway cars, painting the Orange Line yellow and blue first when the Broad Street Line stops at Olney near La Salle, then red a few minutes later at Cecil B. Moore as the Temple students load in. Their great journey will end at the Palestra, the Cathedral of College Basketball, where for one day, church services will be conducted again. Once upon a time, the Big 5 was the cat’s meow. It wasn’t no jive turkey. It was fresh. Back in the ’50s and ’60s, it was recognized nationally for bringing together teams year after year. The manner in which the roundrobin grew to prominence was based on two ideals. Games were played at the Palestra, and they were often paired as doubleheaders, providing spectators with a day’s worth of toplevel basketball action. Now though, besides the rare exception like Saturday, when College GameDay descends on the Palestra before a doubleheader featuring four Big 5 schools happens in the afternoon, those days are gone. And that’s okay. Over the years, coaches stopped wanting to play their “home” games away from home, and quite rightly. Except for St. Joe’s, the trek to the Palestra is a tough one for students from other schools to make, especially when there is less money to be made by playing the games away from home. Each team’s respective athletic director should look after his or her own school. Because of that, the double headers fell to the wayside. For four of the schools in the Big 5, this isn’t a huge loss. We’ve seen in recent years that when teams get hot — Jameer Nelson’s Hawks of the early 2000s, Kyle Lowry’s ’Nova squads — they get their due. Villanova has every game this season televised, and Temple, La Salle and St. Joe’s have a fair share of the spotlight. For everyone but Penn, the Big 5 is not about visibility at all. Those four teams could fill their schedules with tough opponents even if they weren’t a part of this agreement. The Quakers need that same vis-

LAST SECOND SORROW get the ball over the outstretched arms of 6-foot-1 forward Taylor Holeman. Just short. Sydney Stipanovich’s follow-up effort also hit the rim and bounced out, and the Quakers’ bid to beat Villanova for the first time since 2001 ended. T he 55 - 5 4 loss was just t he fourth of the season for the Quakers (8-4, 1-1 Big 5) and may be difficult to swallow given the strong

effort. “I thought we limited our mistakes, I thought we had to score in the upper 50s to win, and we came really close,” coach Mike Mc L aug h l i n sa id . “ W h at el se could we ask for? “We got the ball with 20 seconds to go and got the shot that we wanted and the follow up, but unfortunately the ball did not go in.” Penn and the Wildcats (13-3, 3-1 Big 5) traded leads throughout

playing zone and that got them out of their flow.” Although ’Nova hit seven threepointers in the half, it was the Quakers who entered the locker room with a 29-27 lead after shooting 40 percent from the field.

winter breaking it down M. Hoops

Winter break wasn’t kind to the Quakers, as the squad dropped its first four games before picking up a potentially season-defining victory over rival Princeton. Penn was forced to work around the absence of sophomore forward Darien NelsonHenry, who missed all four defeats while recovering from a concussion. In addition to the Princeton game, the Quakers easily could have secured a couple of wins, matching up against underwhelming opponents. However, the Red and Blue couldn’t grab any momentum against either Marist or La Salle, and they couldn’t come through in the clutch against either Rider or George Mason. The Quakers’ win over Princeton wrapped up the break and gives the team a spark to kick off the Ivy League season.

Wrestling

Penn’s struggles on the mat continued over winter break as the Quakers finished a disappointing 19th at the Southern Scuffle before being destroyed by No. 8 Nebraska. At the Southern Scuffle, Penn managed to send two wrestlers to the podium, with junior Lorenzo Thomas finishing sixth at 184 pounds and freshman Caleb Richardson placing eighth at 125 pounds. Despite the individual successes, Penn finished in the lower half of the 31-team tournament. Against the Cornhuskers on the road, the Quakers couldn’t get anything going, and ended up finishing the break with a 30-9 defeat against one of the nation’s toughest teams.

Gymnastics

The Quakers began 2014 at the Lindsey Ferris Invitational at George Washington. Penn finished fourth out of four, placing behind George Washington, Cornell and Temple. Junior Amber Woo was the Quakers’ top finisher on the vault and second on the uneven bars. Meanwhile, sophomore Amber Hu placed third on the beam, the only event that Penn had at least three finishers in the top 10.

Squash

Both the men’s and women’s squash teams have had successful seasons so far, and both teams hoped to carry that success into the beginning of Ivy play last weekend. Entering Saturday, the men had won all three early-season contests by a combined score of 21-6, while the women had posted a near flawless 26-1 mark. After the men took down Dartmouth, 5-4, on Saturday, freshman Anaka Alankamony led Penn’s women’s team to a convincing sweep of the Big Green. Neither team could sustain the momentum on Sunday, as both squads fell to Harvard.

Swimming

After going through spring training in Boca Raton, Fla., the Quakers had a mixed bag of success in their return to Ivy play this past weekend. Both the men’s and women’s squads handily defeated Dartmouth but lost to Yale in the first Ivy duel meet of the new year. Seniors Rhoads Worster and Shelby Fortin helped pick up wins for the men and women, respectively, while also receiving strong performances from underclassmen like freshman Rochelle Dong.

the first half. After the Quakers created some separation with a 12-2 run, Villanova answered with six straight points of their own to grab a 17-16 lead. “They go wide, they’re all fast and they can all shoot, and that’s what makes them a good offensive team,” senior point g uard Megan McCullough said. “It’s hard to guard, but I thought we did a good job. “We switched it up and started

The Red and Blue dominated their nonconference opponents over break, going on a programbest eight game winning streak. Even more impressive than the streak were the teams Penn defeated, which included a first-ever win over an ACC school (Miami) and a victory over last year’s WNIT champion (Drexel). The Quakers ran into a roadblock in their first Ivy contest of the year, losing to four-time Ivy defending champion Princeton, 84-53, on Saturday.
