Community responds to alleged racially motivated attack against student

Bloomington resident Billie Davis allegedly stabbed an 18-year-old Asian student on Bloomington transit bus 1777 on Jan. 11.

In an email to students, the Asian Culture Center responded to the crime, which has been identified as racially motivated.

According to the affidavit, surveillance footage from the bus shows the suspect attacking the student unprovoked.

“We are outraged and heartbroken by this unprovoked act of violence, but we also worry for the well-being of our community,” an email from the Asian Culture Center said. “We should not be fearing for our lives on public transportation. Taking the bus should not feel dangerous.”

The Office of Student Affairs and Office of Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs will be offering services for students to share and process their feelings of grief and fear,

according to the email.

“We all deserve to work, study, and live in a safe environment, and we urge leaders and individuals to begin having these difficult conversations to make Bloomington a place that we can call a safe home,” the email said.

According to the affidavit, Davis stated she stabbed the victim in the head with a folding knife.

Bus surveillance footage shows Davis stabbing or attempting to stab the victim around seven times on the top of her head, according to the affidavit.

Davis then put the knife back in her pocket and returned to her bus seat. She later exited the bus and was arrested by Bloomington Police Officers.

After the incident, Davis exited the bus and walked away, later discarding the knife, according to a Thursday release from Bloomington Police Captain Ryan Pedigo.

Davis has been preliminarily charged with attempted murder, a level 1 felony, according to the release.

Resources available for AAPI community members

The IU Asian Culture Center released a statement on Jan. 13 responding to the incident and its impact on the Asian American community.

“We are outraged and heartbroken by this unprovoked act of violence, but we also worry for the well-being of our community.”

The ACC plans events aiming to educate and inform people on Asian culture, history and issues. Following the crime, Castillo-Cullather emphasized the importance of patience and understanding during the aftermath of this crime within the Bloomington community.

“This is a very traumatic experience for everyone and the Asian community,” Castillo-Cullather said.

“People need to be patient when it comes to wanting to know more or hearing the story of the student.”

Asian Culture Center support

The ACC is holding listening sessions in the wake of the crime for students to come and express their fears, sadness, anger and any other emotion they may be feeling. The first listening session took place on Jan. 13. Melanie Castillo Cullather, director of ACC, said students suggested a series of sessions, held in different varieties. The first proposed session would encourage Asian students to talk about their personal stories and feelings following the event and hear from other students of Asian descent. The second suggested session will be open to all students on

campus and be a much larger discussion.

Although ACC has not set specific dates for sessions yet, Castillo-Cullather said the ACC website and Instagram will update and announce when the events are happening.

According to the ACC website, each month ACC hosts an “Over a Cup of Tea” discussion, where faculty members, scholars and guest presenters discuss issues concerning Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

Day-to-day support Whether in-person or over zoom, the staff at the ACC is available to talk if a student is feeling scared, worried or just needs someone to listen. Castillo-Cullather said students do not need an appointment to


IU celebrates Martin Luther King Day with social justice conference Meet the American Meteorological Society

For Thema Bryant, Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream is about so much more than the dream. It is about how we get there.

“We are not here to be observers of the dream, we are here to advocate and take our responsibility,” said Bryant, Pepperdine University’s director of Culture and Trauma Research.

Bryant spoke at Indiana University’s Martin Luther King Day celebration, which started at 8:30 p.m. Monday at Alumni Hall in the Indi-

ana Memorial Union.

The event featured a continental breakfast followed by remarks from Bloomington leaders and advocates from all IU campuses. Presentations ended with a keynote address from Bryant.

The conference theme, audacity, came from Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1964 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech.

“I have the audacity to believe that people’s everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education, and culture for their minds, and dignity,

equality, and freedom for their spirits,” King said in his speech.

President Pamela Whitten pointed out the conference comes just days after an anti-Asian hate crime occurred in Bloomington, which she said calls for all the more audacity.

But what does “audacity” mean in regards to racism and trauma in 2023? Martin Luther King Jr. showed it during the civil rights movement by believing change is possible.

The American Meteorological Society (AMS) is the largest scientific and professional organization in the United States that deals with atmospheric, oceanic, and hydrologic sciences. We are a student chapter of AMS here at Indiana University and will begin regularly providing weather forecasts for IDS. Our chapter is a self-governed student organization that brings IU's atmospheric science community together and connects our university to the professional world of meteorology. If you wish to find out more about us, feel free to visit our website at https://amschapteratiu.


Forecasting weather is a multistep process that is different for every meteorologist. Our first step in producing a forecast is checking the latest weather maps, observations, radar, and satellite imagery to assess the atmosphere's current state, which lets us make predictions about immediately upcoming weather. To forecast further ahead, we use weather models to determine how the atmosphere will evolve in regards to weather systems, temperature, moisture, etc.. This allows us to make predictions on if and when storms will arrive, as well as which hazards may

accompany them. Forecasts are always subject to change, especially when the expected weather is multiple days away, so it's always a good idea to stay updated, aware, and prepared!

Holcomb calls for access to mental health care

Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb has proposed several initiatives to increase access to mental health care for Hoosiers as part of his $5.5 billion Next Level state budget agenda released Jan. 4.

In his agenda, the governor is calling to expand the availability of mental health services and introduce mobile crisis teams to respond to emergencies. State lawmakers have until April. 29 to examine and approve bills to craft a spending plan that will last the state through 2025.

Under Holcomb’s proposal, Indiana would improve and expand the 988 Crisis and Suicide Lifeline services, according to a press release from in.gov. Implemented within the state, 988 would include someone to contact at a 988 center, someone to respond and a safe place to go if needed.

He proposed to continue the transition to a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic system, part of a nationwide move toward the CCBHC system announced in October 2022. CCBHCs improve the services currently provided by community mental health centers and serve anyone regardless of diagnosis or insurance status.

Holcomb is also piloting four mobile crisis teams in 15 counties, trained to respond to those experiencing mental health-related emergencies. According to the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration, teams would be composed of peers and behavioral health professionals skilled in specialized crisis care.

The budget agenda supported implementing the Governor’s Challenge to Prevent Suicide among veterans by investing $4.25 million into programs for veteran wellness. Indiana will also invest more than $500 million received from the national opioid settlement into resources for Hoosiers facing addiction. He will launch a new Treatment Finder Program to connect people with appropriate


For 40 years, Delilah’s Pet Shop has provided pets for the Bloomington community. But on Jan. 1, a city ordinance banning the retail sale of cats and dogs took effect, forcing the store to adapt.

“It’s so quiet now,” owner Lesli Henderson-Miller said. “Before, we could hear the sounds of people laughing, the sounds of dogs barking.”

The shop, named after the family Saint Bernard Delilah, was started by Henderson-Miller's mother, Karene Kidwell, who was a veterinarian technician. Henderson-Miller teared up as she talked about her mother’s death, which happened just last year.

“It’s been a hard year,” she said.

In an 8–0 vote in December 2021, the Bloomington City Council passed the ordinance in response to concern about puppy mills, which are large dog-breeding facilities that breed for profit, regardless of how the animals are treated.

Henderson-Miller said only one member of the city council visited her shop while the ordinance was being decided. She recalls the member saying the shop was nothing like what they were trying to stop.

“What we do here is we love our animals,” Henderson-Miller said. “It’s a soul. It’s a little person. It should be treated as a person.”

Henderson-Miller understands the council had good intentions but thinks that the ban was unfair to shops that weren’t doing anything wrong.

“This is my whole life,” she said.

Opponents of the retail sale of pets are mostly concerned about where

treatment, as well as create more community substance use programs.

Kara Baertsch, president of Mental Health America Monroe County, said one of the most prominent issues surrounding mental health care is access to care. Some providers only take commercial insurance plans, leaving lower-income people with fewer options. Long waitlists and provider shortages also present barriers to care.

Assigning a case worker to each person seeking care could help them compile resources and address financial, educational and housing instability while they wait to see a provider, Baertsch said.

“All of those are major stressors for mental health concerns, so if we could address those from a community standpoint, I think it would do wonders,” she said.

It’s important to ac-

knowledge crisis intervention teams usually don’t get involved until an active crisis is happening. Crisis intervention teams should be available to help people before they reach a crisis point, she said.

“They definitely have their place and their space and they’re super, super important, but in terms of getting people the help they need before it gets to that point, I think we have to look further upstream,” she said.

Brendan Bow is a program analyst at the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Bow studies individuals who are unhoused and health inequity.

Discussions around mental health and unhoused individuals often go together, he said. In January 2022, 3,860 people were unhoused in Indiana on a given night, according to the U.S. Department of Hous-

ing’s Point-in-Time count. Of those reported, 802 were demonstrated to be severely mentally ill and 567 had chronic substance abuse.

Senate Bill 34, introduced for this legislative session, would expunge addiction-related convictions from a person’s record if that person has completed a high-intensity residential treatment program. Criminal convictions related to substance abuse can make it more difficult to find affordable housing, Bow said. Having those records expunged and taken off a background check can help those experiencing being unhoused find housing.

Suzanne Koesel is the regional chief executive officer at Centerstone Indiana, which offers addiction treatment. Koesel said Indiana has long needed more crisis diversion centers and mobile crisis services. She said these programs can offer help to people in crisis who

struggles after city ban

may have otherwise been taken to the emergency room or jail.

“When you think about a person having a mental health crisis, I think it can be scary to have the police show up,” she said. “It can sometimes be less threatening when you have a team that involves clinical staff who can help connect you to services and just share space if that’s needed.”

Koesel said she is glad to see the governor investing into addiction services, and that investments are needed in a variety of places from actual treatment to housing and employment support.

“I think what we see happening in Indiana, and frankly nationally, is an increased awareness about the need for more mental health and substance use treatments and recovery resources,” Koesel said. “It’s exciting to see some of these things show up in the governor’s initiative.”

Hamilton announces nonprofit corporation

Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton announced the activation of a new 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, City of Bloomington Capital Improvements, Inc., on Jan. 13. According to a City of Bloomington press release, CBCI will focus their efforts on improving arts, technology, jobs and housing in the city.

According to the same press release, CBCI will be involved in city projects including the BuskirkChumley Theater, Waldron Arts Center and the Trades District, which includes the planned federal EDAfunded Tech Center. CBCI will also be involved with housing opportunities in the new Hopewell neighborhood downtown.

A five-member board of directors will govern CBCI to ensure the fulfillment of charitable, educational and other public purposes in Bloomington, according to the press release. A draft of bylaws and a conflicts of interest policy have been shared with members of the Bloomington City Council which aim to attain a transparent and accountable corporation.

“Activating this nonprofit will let us pursue very significant opportunities with the focus and attention needed to help maximize our community’s opportunities and potential,” Hamilton said in the press release.

The press release stated next steps include appointing CBCI board members and working with Bloomington City Council to explore funding options and potential property transfers. City departments currently working on initiatives that will become CBCI’s future work will partner with CBCI to ensure full participation and engagement with community interests.

the pets are sourced. Virgil Sauder, director of City of Bloomington Animal Care and Control, said some breeders do not ensure pets come from healthy genetics and sometimes separate puppies too young, causing health and behavioral problems.

The other option for sourcing is a broker system, where people buy animals from puppy mills and resell them online or to pet stores. Sauder said places like these often place animals in small cages filled with feces, urine and litter.

“They’re basically factory farming puppies,” he said.

But getting pets from ethical breeders can be beneficial for those who want young puppies or are interested in knowing the parents of the pet, Sauder said.

While the push to ban the sale of pets in stores has reduced the number of pets in mills nationally, some Indiana legislators are looking to pass a law that would allow stores to sell pets from USDA-licensed breeders. Filed in both the House of

Representatives and Senate, these bills would make local ordinances, like the one in Bloomington, unenforceable.

Samantha Morton, the Indiana state director for the Humane Society of the United States, said that USDA certification doesn’t mean breeding practices are ethical. According to the Humane Society of the United States, USDA-licensed breeders that violate the Animal Welfare Act are rarely fined and are easily able to renew their licenses.

Morton said the organization is working to stop the Indiana legislation. She said that 32,000 fewer breeding dogs are caged in licensed facilities compared to ten years ago, which she believes is due to legislation causing a decline in retail pet sales.

Morton said pet stores may not be getting pets ethically even if they don’t source from puppy mills.

“Responsible breeders want to meet the family that’s coming to buy the dog,” she said.

Henderson-Miller said

she got her pets from local breeders and emphasized the commitment involved in pet ownership to prospective buyers. She said being a small business owner is making it difficult to compete with large businesses that have also stopped selling pets, like PetSmart or PetCo, because she cannot buy store items in bulk.

“It’s such a fast-paced world that it’s just really easy to sweep someone under the carpet if you can,” she said. “But when you destroy somebody’s life, like what it’s beginning to do, that hurts.”

Although the state of the retail sale of pets remains uncertain, Henderson-Miller is adapting to the ordinance by offering grooming services and selling an array of pet food, toys and accessories.

In a room of wooden pens that used to hold puppies and kittens, all that remains are a few rescues and favors for friends. The pens with pets are marked with notes that read “NOT FOR SALE.”

No, you did not know that Noah Schnapp was gay

On Jan. 5, 2023, “Stranger Things” star Noah Schnapp uploaded a video to TikTok.

“When I finally told my friends and family I was gay after being scared in the closet for 18 years and all they said was ‘We know,’” Schnapp’s caption read.

This video received a lot of positive comments congratulating him on coming out and sending their love. But some individuals responded differently.

There were some com-

ments online that claimed that they knew Schnapp was gay before he formally came out. These comments fall something along the lines of “I called it,” or “The closet is made out of glass.”

And while these people may have meant no harm with their comments, this does bring up a larger issue that can happen when celebrities like Schnapp decide to come out.

Coming out as a member of the LGBTQ community is an extremely big decision that can be terrifying, especially as a public figure. Coming out opens

the door to criticism, hate, death threats, etc., and for a celebrity, coming out can harm their career. A good example of this is when Jojo Siwa came out in January 2021.

Siwa faced massive backlash after coming out, mainly by parents whose kids consume Siwa’s content and buy Siwa’s merchandise. Parents remarked they were no longer going to let their children have anything to do with Siwa. Siwa addressed these comments in an interview with TODAY in which she said that she “couldn’t sleep for

three days” after coming out.

“My thing is, I don't want people to watch my videos or buy my merchandise if they aren't going to support not only me but the LGBTQ+ community,” Siwa said.

Furthermore, in April 2022, Jojo Siwa was not invited to the Kids Choice Awards, despite being nominated. People online speculated that this was due to her becoming a voice for the LGBTQ community after coming out.

These instances show that coming out is a deeply

personal and vulnerable experience, especially to those with a large audience. The fact that Schnapp felt safe and loved enough to share this part of him is extremely commendable, and he deserves nothing but love, acceptance and kindness from his audience.

There is no way to know if someone is gay until they tell you. This is especially true when you do not personally know the person you are speculating about. You are only assuming based on what you perceive as signs of “being gay.”And

boiling down an identity to these arbitrary signs is outdated and stereotypical. Gay people all look, act and think differently and independently from one another.

So, when somebody comes out, leave the unnecessary comments at home and don’t make their coming out story about what you thought you knew or assumed. I am extremely proud of Noah Schnapp for coming out and speaking his truth, and you should be too.

These women of color are modern day trailblazers

As we continue to set goals for the new year and reflect on what happened in 2022, Martin Luther King Jr. Day comes around the corner and reminds us to keep in mind a major goal to work toward: the end of racial injustice.

When quarantine was under way in 2020, not only were we facing a health crisis but also a climax in social injustice. The death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, struck myself and many other Americans to the core. A series of protests from around the world were sparked, and at a time of a still ongoing pandemic, people took to the streets to make a statement.

Moments before his death, Floyd’s statement “I can’t breathe” represented the feelings of millions who have been suffocated by hundreds of years of institutionalized racism.

So, in the past three years, who has continued the work?

In honor of the work of Martin Luther King Jr., I researched voices of women of color across the country that have continued a similar line of work. By living as examples in positions of leadership, the world has faced change for the better.

One Black voice that has been a trailblazer is the current Vice President Kamala Harris. Harris is the first Black person, and first woman U.S. vice president in history. Politics can be controversial, but if we can put any political controversies aside, Harris stands as a role model for millions of people of color around the world as someone who can rise into a place of leadership within America despite adversity. Oftentimes, seeing someone who looks

like you with the career of your dreams makes it easier to envision yourself in that position. With Harris, people of color and women are able to envision themselves in a career that may not have been legally possible for them hundreds of years ago.

There are also many Black artists and influencers today that live a life where others can look up to them.

SZA’s new album “SOS” has shattered previously held records for Black artists, and women artists mainly within the R&B genre of music.

Some achievements SZA has made with this album include breaking the record for largest streaming week for an R&B album and the third largest stream week of 2022, racking up 404.6 million on-demand streams and she has also been the No.1 listened to artist on Billboard for five weeks straight. By holding these records she is leading the way for millions of Black artists across the world, living as an example for people of color, especially women of color.

In the acting world, people of color face barriers be-

cause of the racism that is still prominent today. However, Micheala Jaé Rodriguez is one actor who has defied history.

In 2021 Micheala Jaé Rodriguez, or MJ, was the first transgender woman to be nominated for an Emmy for her role in TV show “Pose.”

In 2022 she was the first transgender woman to win a Golden Globes award for that same role. Rodriguez is someone that Black people in the LGBTQ community can look to as an example of living proudly for who they are.

At one point the phrase

“Black Lives Matter” was everywhere on social media, and yet, now when I go to Instagram or TikTok, there’s little mention of it. It’s as though the fight for justice morphed into a trend. However, because the trend lasted so long, millions of people were impacted by the peaceful protests and gained needed knowledge about what they can do to help the fight for justice.

So, as we reflect on the work that Martin Luther King Jr. did during his time, we can further understand his mis-

sion and take it into our own hands. Women of color continue to live out their lives in ways that weren’t possible without the work of past barrier breakers. By doing this they redefine what it means to be a person of color within America, and continue to help generations of the future. Educating oneself and speaking out against racial injustice are just two things we can all do to make this world a safer space for people of all ethnic backgrounds.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

For those seeking professional counseling, IU offers Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) to students. According to the IU Student Health Center website, if students have paid the student health fee, they will receive two free appointments every semester. The ACC also offers additional counseling through CAPS at the culture center, where Wilson Hsiao is the embedded counselor for the ACC.

Travel Resources

If students do not feel comfortable taking public transportation, they can scan the code available on IU Ride. Students can get a $6.50 discount off their Lyft ride from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m.


IU Ride also offers free rides within Bloomington city limits for students who feel unsafe walking home or to work. By downloading the mobile app TransLoc onto their phone, students can request a ride any time from 8 p.m. to 1:40 a.m.

Reporting bias incidents

If a student witnesses an incident where someone is mistreated due to their race or other factors such as gender or sexuality, they can report it to the university using the bias reporting system. Asian Americans Advancing Justice also tracks instances where Asian Americans across the country log their own instances of mistreatment and hate crimes.

Ways to get connected

The Virulent Hate Project is a research initiative that began in response to hate crimes committed against the AAPI community during the COVID-19 pandemic. The group has a database of hundreds of community

organizations people can join. They range from activist organizations to support systems. Castillo-Cullather encourages the Bloomington community to use this time to make students feel safe and welcome.

“I want our students to feel as safe as every other student,” Castillo-Cullather said.

Thema Bryant, director of Culture and Trauma Research Lab at Pepperdine University, describes it as something we need to continue the progress within social justice. Audacity describes those who are willing to do the work, even though it's uncomfortable, she said.

“It requires that kind of audacity to, in the same week that we have seen a hate crime, show up and say ‘Yet, we believe’,” Bryant said. “It requires that kind of bodacious audacity to stand up in the midst of all of the despair and say ‘There is still reason for me to hope, there is still reason for me to believe, there is still reason for me to resist.’”

Bryant has studied trauma recovery for more than 20 years, often appearing on television as a mental health expert. She has dedicated her career to raising awareness about mental health issues, specifically how it relates to racial trauma.

One of the first steps in understanding these traumas, she says, is to realize that oppression occurs not just in the world, but also in our own backyards. Oppression can happen anywhere, even our

own communities, schools, workplaces, etc.

“If we are committed to justice, we cannot get defensive when the light turns on our own campuses,” she said. “Those who are committed to deep-rooted change are willing to acknowledge we have grown, but there is still growth to accomplish.”

After informing the audience to challenge their own communities, Bryant encouraged Hoosiers to be present through accountability and monitoring, and to push the boundaries of “cultural competence.”

“Stretching beyond awareness is anti-oppression,” Bryant said. “How you are willing to work to change it in our policies and procedures on campus — that's what we want to know. I came on today looking for those who are willing to speak up.”

Acknowledgment is a big first step in racial traumas for everyone, she said.

Bryant continued to talk about the effects of racial trauma, both psychological and physical, prompting the audience to think about ways they

have been affected by oppression. We all respond differently, but we all have a response, she said.

“Some of us respond with depression and despair, but as you think about people of color I want you to know that culturally and religiously many of us are raised to not show weakness,” Bryant said. “So sometimes our depression doesn’t show up as sadness, it shows up as irritability.”

This response is a result of trauma, Bryant said, some people may react with irritability because their life has required it, not because they are rude or mean. Many people have adjusted to racism, which calls for unity of people from every background to dismantle, she said.

“We are one family and no one can separate us,” Bryant said to the crowd.

After, she had everyone in the room repeat to those standing them to them.

The event concluded with closing remarks from Monica Johnson, Assistant Vice President of the Diversity Education and Cross-Cultural Engagement program.

No. 6 Indiana defeats Wisconsin 93-56

In front of a regular season record crowd of 10,422 at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, No. 6 Indiana women’s basketball did not disappoint. The cream and crimson dominated both ends of the floor to win 93-56 and improve to 16-1 overall, 5-1 in Big Ten play.

The Badgers made a push to close out the first quarter, shrinking their deficit to six points, then scoring the first two of the second period to make it 24-20. However, the second frame was all Hoosiers.

Holmes controlled the paint and converted several trips at the freethrow line, and graduate guard Grace Berger scored seven points, including her first 3-pointer since making her return. Indiana outscored Wisconsin 23-8 in the second quarter, including a 21-4 run in the final seven minutes and 35 seconds, and the Hoosiers led 47-26 at the half.

Indiana did not let off the gas. It scored 31 points in the third period, a season high for a quarter. After shooting 4-of-14 from three in the first half, Indiana shot 4-of-5 from deep in the frame, two of which from Garzon for her third and fourth 3-pointers of the game.

“We got great shots in the first half,” Moren said. “They just didn’t go down for us Two things we tell them is to have a short memory and keep shooting.”

Having extended its lead to 31 points, Indiana rested its starters in the fourth quarter. Junior forward Kiandra Browne made her first home appearance

of the season and graduate forward Alyssa Geary made her first appearance in three games following a non-COVID illness.

Freshman forward Lilly Meister scored six points and grabbed two boards in the fourth frame to help the Hoosiers close things out. Indiana’s 37-point win is the second-ever largest margin of victory over Wisconsin. The Hoosiers beat the Badgers by 54 on Dec. 7, 1974.

Holmes led the way with 29 points in 26 minutes played, four points shy of her career high. Garzon

affected all facets of the game, scoring 19 points, grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out seven assists. Berger scored 11 and Parrish added 10 to mark four Hoosiers in doubledigit scoring.

Seeing her family for the first time since August, Garzon said it was a pleasant surprise to have them cheering her on.

“My mom was here,” Garzon said, jokingly attributing her performance to her family. “It’s been a lot for me, so it was great to look up and see their faces.”

Indiana played profi-

ciently on both sides of the ball. It shot 54.7% from the field — including 40% from three — and held Wisconsin to 34.9% shooting and forced the Badgers into 21 turnovers.

The victory also put Moren at the top of Indiana’s record books. In her ninth season at Indiana, Moren earned her 188th win with the Hoosiers, tying her with the late Jim Izard. Izard coached Indiana from 1989-2000.

“It’s the kids in the program and the staff I’ve managed to have,” Moren said. “It’s great, but it’s real-

Reinvigorated defense sparks Indiana in 63-45 victory over Wisconsin

Just four days after Indiana men’s basketball’s porous defense allowed Penn State to run away with a victory, it returned to Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall on Saturday looking like a different team.

Indiana had little issue dealing with No. 18 Wisconsin’s offense, earning a much-needed 63-45 victory to snap a three-game losing streak.

“Our backs were somewhat against the wall, and losing three in a row is not fun for anybody,” head coach Mike Woodson said after the game. “But our guys still had good spirits coming into practice, and it was a nice carryover today. We played Indiana defense the way I think we should be playing.”

The Hoosiers held the Badgers to just 32% shooting from the field. Despite making just one 3-pointer, Indiana’s offense, which shot 47%, helped the Hoosiers run away with the game late.

The two sides broke out in a defensive battle from the start, scoring just six points combined in the first five minutes. They traded blows and missed shots, struggling to swing the momentum either way.

After Wednesday’s poor defensive showing, when Indiana allowed 18 Penn State 3-pointers, Saturday was a chance to bounce back on that side of the ball. The Hoosiers looked better in nearly all facets of the game — they moved better, rotated better and did a better job of playing physically. Wisconsin didn’t have an answer.

“There’s been a lot of practice,” Woodson said. “A lot of yelling and screaming and trying to get things accomplished in practice. I thought our guys answered the bell tonight.”

The Badgers shot 33% in the first half, only staying in the game because the Hoosiers shot an even worse

30%, and Indiana entered the break with a 21-20 lead. Neither team could find rhythm, shooting balls that bounced off the rim or sometimes never touched it at all.

“I know defense wins basketball games, and I’ve been about enough games where neither team could score the basketball and it’s a dogfight,” Woodson said. “You know, everybody is scratching and scraping and trying to get a bucket and can’t get it, and that’s how it was the first half. I don’t mind games like that.”

For a team that had allowed more than 80 points in three straight games, Indiana’s defensive performance was a positive sign, far outweighing the offensive struggles. Wisconsin’s 45 points is the lowest total Indiana has allowed this season, marking a return to the defense-first style the Hoosiers employed under Woodson last season.

The Hoosiers picked up

a shot of energy from junior forward Jordan Geronimo, who had his

“I thought he played so within himself tonight,” Woodson said. “It wasn’t even funny. He did a lot of good things defensively. He rebounded the ball. He finished around the rim and we’re going to need that.”

Geronimo’s performance was one of his best this season, scoring 12 points and adding 11 boards, much needed after a rough start to 2023, including a scoreless game against Northwestern.

“I just have a short memory,” Geronimo said. “Play hard, play physical and make the right play. So, I know what I have those possessions where I don’t play well, I’m just like, ‘Hey, next possession, let’s do it.’”

In the second half, Indiana opened the offensive floodgates. It started the half on an 18-2 run,

with the offense running smoother and earning better looks than it did to start.

The hustle the defense produced translated into offense. On one series, Geronimo grabbed a defensive rebound and took the ball coast to coast, blowing past a Wisconsin defender to attempt a layup. When he missed, he grabbed the offensive board and powered through Wisconsin’s defense again to make the put-back.

The icing came from senior forward Trayce Jackson-Davis, who had three late dunks to put an exclamation point on his 18-point, 12-rebound double-double, including a reverse slam with four minutes left. It was the first dunk for an Indiana player since the loss to Iowa on Jan. 5.

Indiana will look to play off Saturday’s performance next time out, when it travels to play Illinois at 8:30 p.m. Thursday in Champaign, Illinois.

ly just a tribute to the kinds of kids we’ve had.”

Next for the Hoosiers is a road test at Illinois Wednesday at 8 p.m. Indiana defeated Illinois 65-61 in Bloomington on Dec. 4.

“The crowd was unbelievable,” head coach Teri Moren said after the game. “Second largest in history, which is pretty terrific. It was one of those days where there was a lot of really good basketball that they were able to see.”

The Hoosiers started off hot. Freshman guard Yarden Garzon, whose mother and sister traveled from

Israel to watch, scored Indiana’s first seven points, then senior forward Mackenzie Holmes responded with six of her own. Indiana made eight of its first nine field goals to jump out to a 20-8 lead.

Indiana’s offense was clicking on all cylinders. The two-man game between Garzon and Holmes proved unstoppable, then set plays from head coach Teri Moren helped create wide open looks, such as junior guards Sydney Parrish and Chloe Moore-McNeil connecting for an easy layup.

Indiana starts season with wins over Dayton and Toledo

The Indiana men’s tennis team opened its 2023 regular season on Sunday, as it welcomed the University of Dayton and the University of Toledo to Bloomington. The Hoosiers took down the Flyers and the Rockets by a score of 4-1 in both matches.

The Hoosiers’ first opponent on Sunday morning was the Flyers. Senior Luka Vukovic paired up with freshman Ekansh Kumar to defeat junior Ron Hiryur and senior Max DeCurtins at No. 3 Doubles. It was followed by the freshman tandem of Sam Landau and Luc Boulier who teamed up to take down sophomore Eric Perkowski and senior Georgi Mavrodiev at No. 2 Doubles to secure the doubles point for Indiana.

“Sam and Luc had a good fall, which is awesome,” head coach Jeremy Wurtzman said.

Landau and Boulier enter their freshmen season as the only Hoosier duo to be ranked by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, currently at No. 43.

In singles play, Kumar, Landau and junior Ilya Tiraspolsky all won, giving the Hoosiers the 4-1 win.

The young Hoosiers saw two of their talented freshmen win singles matches to help clinch the win over Dayton.

“We had some new guys out there.” Wurtzman said. “Everyone is a little bit nervous and anxious to play that first match.”

The second opponent of the day was Toledo, and despite winning the doubles point en route to a 4-1 victory in its first match of the day, the team wasn’t satisfied.

“We felt like the first match we didn’t play that great in doubles,” Wurtzman said.

The team responded, winning all three doubles matches against Toledo

and earning the doubles point.

Using the momentum from their sweep in doubles play, the Hoosiers were able to close out Toledo in singles play without much trouble.

Tiraspolsky and Kumar got their second singles wins of the day - at No. 4 Singles and No. 6 Singles respectively - to get the Hoosiers their first two singles points. Vukovic then got the third and final singles point for the Hoosiers by defeating junior Adam Kovac at No. 2 Singles.

“We’re learning to win again,” Wurtzman said.

Wurtzman said Indiana hadn’t played a match since Nov. 4.

The only Hoosier to struggle on an otherwise solid day for the team was the Hoosiers fifth-year senior Patrick Fletchall.

Fletchall, teaming up with Tiraspolsky, won at No. 1 Doubles against Toledo, but lost both of his singles matches on Sunday.

“Patrick, he had his hands full,” Wurtzmand said. “He just didn’t get a good start. Every match that he plays up there (at No. 1 Singles) is gonna be very competitive.”

Wurtzman and the team weren’t concerned however, as Indiana flexed its depth early in the season against Dayton and Toledo.

“We have a lot of guys who can play,” Wurtzman said. “It was great to see guys throughout the lineup step up and play well. Our depth is gonna be one of our main strengths this year.”

The Hoosiers are back in action Friday, Jan. 20, as they are set to take on No. 25 Middle Tennessee State University.

“It’s gonna be tough,” Wurtzman said. “It will be great for our young group to play in that environment.”

With the wins over Dayton and Toledo, Indiana is off to a 2-0 start to its 2023 campaign.

COLUMN: ‘The Last of Us’ can win the hearts of non-gamers

SPOILER ALERT: This column contains potential spoilers about the first episode of “The Last of Us.”

Episode One: “When You’re Lost in the Darkness”

I’m intrigued by how video games tell stories but it’d be stupid to call me a gamer.

I dabble, you know? I know the names of a lot of games, but that’s mostly because of my brother, who knows more about games than I could ever have the capacity for. I do play Mario Kart. And Wii Sports Resort. All the LEGO games, too. And, randomly, I play Grand Theft Auto.

Poorly, though. What I’m interested in is world-building. For most games, I’d rather watch an excellent gamer play while I’m on the sidelines. Because — from Panem to the

Wizarding World to Gotham to Jurassic Park — simple and complex universes alike need the building blocks of literary life: characters and character attributes. Setting and imagery. History and context.

And video games achieve that, too.

I strongly believe video games have become so advanced and well-done that some can be considered high art. And I absolutely believe that episode one of “The Last of Us” — an adaptation of the popular, extremely well-reviewed 2013 video game — is high art.

It’s poignant to reimagine Earth. Obviously, every fictional book, show and movie set on this planet is some sort of reimagining. They’re all technically a series of parallel universes — none of which actually exist, no matter how similar they are to the one we know — but all of which ask the question, “What if this hap-

pened to this person in this place at this time?”

If we break down the world of “The Last of Us,” we’re left with a disturbing scene. In the first episode, we open in 1968, with two epidemiologists on a Dick Cavett-style show. One of them admits that his fear doesn’t involve the illnesses humans have faced and conquered in the past, but, rather, fungal infections. “Billions of puppets with poisoned minds,” the epidemiologist remarks.

The cold open creepily sets up the rest of the episode, where we’re thrust, relatively quickly, into an apocalyptic Earth where a parasitic fungus — cordyceps — takes over. The fungi turn humans into zombie hosts, with their only goal being to spread infection. Flash forward 20 years, and we’re placed in Boston, where the world has been ravaged.

The first episode of “The

Last of Us” already poses a lot of uncomfortable questions. Is it ethical to drive past a family on the side of the road with a small child to save yourself — just like Joel (Pedro Pascal) told his brother Tommy (Gabriel Luna) to do? Is it okay to kill someone who could screw up the entire future of humanity? Is there potential to replace someone you loved with someone else?

And do any of these questions matter when your innate sense of self-preservation is the only goal you can understand?

Joel is struggling with all of this. His daughter Sarah (Nico Parker) dies by gunshot in 2003 during that first horrific night of the apocalypse, demonstrating how quickly trigger-happy soldiers were becoming scared of the unknown. And, later in the episode, Joel beats an officer to death in front of the all-important Ellie (Bella Ramsey), clearly allowing

his paternal instinct to take over — in a very violent manner — almost in an act of revenge.

This show demands a lot of you. I’m worried that in the age of social media, though, people will scroll with this on in the background. I’m also worried that those who are faint of heart will avoid it. And yeah — I won’t lie to you: it’s disgusting. It’s about a parasitic virus that turns humans into cannibalistic, zombie-like creatures. There’s blood. There are jump scares. There are upsetting, jerky, nonhuman movements made by “humans.” But, like Joel said, “We’re gonna be brave.”

“When You’re Lost in the Darkness” is a heartbreaking episode of television. It’s also nauseating. You might have to take a break — it’s almost 90 minutes of pure anxiety. But the fact that it can explore so many disturbing themes effectively, without coming across as

Phil Chan to release his newest book

Phil Chan is no stranger to confronting stereotypes on the stage. From co-founding Final Bow for Yellowface, to writing his first book, “Final Bow for Yellowface: Dancing between Intention and Impact,” Chan has advocated for the elimination of prejudiced representations of Asian characters in ballet. The idea for Chan’s new-

est book, “Banishing Orientalism: Dancing between Exotic and Familiar,” came from his fellowship at the New York Public Library in 2020 when he saw just how many ballets adopted “exotic” locations to tell their stories.

“I looked at about a hundred orientalist ballets from Louis XIV to today,” Chan said. “I wanted to know: what’s the appeal of that? When you set a story in an

exotic place like Asia, what are you doing?”

As Chan learned, ballets created in early Europe were set in different regions of the world to explore cultural taboos without fear of pushback as well as to show audiences something “different” despite having no real knowledge of the cultures being depicted.

“If you don’t know what those people over there look like, you have to make it up,”

Chan said. “New rhythms, new ways of moving the body, new ways of dancing, these things you could explore in an oriental setting.”

While these ballets were innovative and pushed the creative boundaries, Chan saw a problem performing these old Eurocentric works in today’s multiracial world.

“That’s what this book is about,” Chan said. “It’s looking at history but also proposing solutions to move

forward as an art form, to keep tradition alive without canceling tradition but also making it more inclusive.”

Chan hopes the book changes the way lovers of ballet and opera consume the art forms, offering a racialized lens that some may not have looked through before.

“If you really love the art form, you want as many people as possible to love what you love and see what you

tasteless, is astonishing. Given the world that “The Last of Us” exists in, it would be incongruous for such graphic elements to be excluded.

As a non-gamer, I can say with 100% certainty that this show is for us, too. But I still have many questions for people who’ve played the game and are watching the show. When you play a video game, is the goal simply to win, or to also engage with the morality of the game? Does TV, then — because it takes out the aspect of competition — allow for the hair-raising questions to sink in more? You’re no longer a participant, but a viewer.

I don’t have many answers yet, but I can keep asking questions. And the most important question I can ask at this moment — as a critic — is “Do I think this is good television?”

Yes. A proper, forceful “yes.” This is damn good television.

see and share in that beauty,” Chan said.

Chan is also working closely with the Jacobs School of Music Ballet Theater department to bring to life a revised production of “La Bayadere,” a classical ballet piece set to debut at the Musical Arts Center in 2024.

The book is available for pre-order now on Amazon. It will be officially released on Jan. 22.
