ISU falls to No. 2-seeded Ohio State after heartbreaking buzzer-beater By Dean.Berhow-Goll @iowastatedaily.com
DAYTON, Ohio — If it was ever possible to sum up Iowa State’s season in one moment, it happened on Sunday in the third round of the NCAA tournament against Ohio State. A lost rebound awarded No. 2-seeded Ohio State the ball and a chance at a game-winning shot. Instead of running the drawn-up play for the last shot, OSU floor general Aaron Craft held the ball at the top of the key and waited for the clock to tick. Then, with only 0.5 seconds left, Craft sunk his only 3-point shot of the game and with it, Iowa State’s hope of reaching the Sweet Sixteen for the first time in more than a decade. “Those six seniors brought us back,” said Georges Niang with teary eyes after the game. “And to have it taken away on one play is just tough to handle.” The waning minutes of the game contained nearly every up-and-down characteristic of Iowa State’s season — 3-point shooting, controversial calls and heartbreak. Time and time again throughout the regular season, Iowa State (23-11) found itself in need of a run when it trailed — and again found it. At the 6:04 mark, Iowa State trailed 69-56 having just allowed a 17-5 OSU run. A slew of 3-pointers sparked a 13-0 ISU run capped off by an and-one layup by Korie Lucious, tying the game at 69-69. Then, with 1:41 left in the game, Will Clyburn attacked the

Iowa State to host annual spring blood drive Iowa State will host its annual spring blood drive Monday through Friday of this week in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union. The ISU blood drive event is one of the largest studentrun blood drives in the United States. Students and faculty are welcome to stop and donate between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. throughout the week. Each blood donation has the potential to save three lives. The Red Cross, which is not associated with this event, advises donors to hydrate well before donating. Proper iron levels are also essential to donate blood. Some iron-rich foods include cereal, seafood, beef, strawberries and tofu, among many others. Donors need to be aware of travel restrictions. Individuals who traveled during Spring Break should check with blood drive officials to see if they are able to donate. Students must wait 12 months after traveling to an area where malaria is found or after returning from Iraq. -Daily staff

Cutrona is the founder of the Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) chapter in Ames. “I wanted to support other parents who were going through the discovery that their son or daughter was gay or lesbian,” Cutrona said.

Playing with the blue men is the band, who play more traditional instruments like the guitar, bass and a drum kit. The technique required to play PVC instruments are no different than playing any other percussive instrument. “A lot of their members, the artists in the group, are specifically percussionists. Really, the skills that they use in playing the music is a small part of the whole bunch of skills that they need to do,” said Matthew Coley, lecturer in music and theater at Iowa State. The PVC pipes are naturally resonant just like the marimbas, for example. The different material of the pipe gives it a unique sound.

It would just kind of stay put, and water would repel off of it,” Andries said. Their color was chosen as part of their act because it was the most welcoming. Green made them look too much like an alien and red made them look devilish. Other colors, like yellow and purple were hard to light on the stage. “It’s soft, it’s welcoming and it’s gentle. It just works with the character,” Andries said. Throughout the performance the blue men do not say anything. They need to stay in character during the improvisation parts during which they are interacting with the audience. “The blue man is curious about everything no matter what happens. It becomes an experiment with the other two guys. ... It’s the blue men responding to all sorts of circumstances,” Andries said.

Army ROTC excels in four-week course Cadets perform well in rigorous program
well cadets do at the course is a large deciding factor in determining if the program would receive other awards, such as the MacArthur Award. “We did extremely well; it helped us get number one in the brigade, and helped us get the MacArthur award,” said Lt. Col. Richard Smith, professor and chair of military science and the tactics department. By looking at the numbers, ISU Army ROTC exceeded expectations with their performance at the course. “A platoon has 40 to 50 people in it, five squads and there’s about 10 to 12 each squad, five platoons per company, two companies per regiment, 14 regiments, so there’s only 140 spots for number one in platoon and we had seven. There’s major 273 schools, so we had more than our fair share of number ones,” Smith said. Smith knew the cadets were capable of achieving success in the Leadership Development
By Paul.Ehrsam @iowastatedaily.com ISU Army ROTC continued keeping themselves to a higher standard by performing well at the Leadership Development Assessment Course. Every summer, all cadets who have completed their junior year participate in the Leadership Development Assessment Course. The rigorous four-week program in Fort Lewis, Wash., includes evaluations of physical fitness, communication, leadership skills, land navigation skills, weapons training and other similar subjects. The Leadership Development Assessment Course is considered by many to be the most important training event for a cadet and how
Assessment Course, but the cadets raised the bar yet again. “We were blessed with how well our kids did. I knew we would have some top five in the platoon; I did not think we would have seven number ones in the platoon,” Smith said. “It shows we did something right; there’s something that we did in the training that the system, the model that we have works, the way we do it in the school year works.” That same model got several cadets great accomplishments at the Leadership Development Assessment Course, including Trevor Thein, who achieved first in regiment. “As you can see from the results we’re one of the best in the nation, we spend a lot of time training and we even spend time in the summer training, so they did a great job prepping me,” said Thein, senior in interdisciplinary studies. Thein said succeeding in the

course means a lot and can lead to more opportunities in the future. “It’s a high-level achievement, and only 14 people out of around 6,000 did it this summer, so it’s a great accomplishment it means a lot to me and it looks good and sets me apart from my peers and helps me get the job that I want,” Thein said. ISU Army ROTC’s success in this year’s course has only raised the
already high standard the program holds itself to. “Its one of those things where we’ve done so well throughout the past years not just this last year, that it’s a standard that we look to uphold from year to year now,” Thein said. “So we train that much harder every year to keep it because we don’t want to go down the ladder, we only want to go up.”
>>PRIDE.p1 and advocacy,” said Cyndie Drury, current PFLAG chapter president. According to the PFLAG website, “Only with respect, dignity and equality for all will we reach our full potential as human beings, individually and collectively.” Cutrona said PFLAG worked to add sexual identity and gender identity to the anti-harassment policy at Ames High School at the same time her daughter was starting the first Gay Straight Alliance in Iowa at Ames High School. “We met with the school board back when my daughter was in high school and lobbied pretty enthusiastically, pretty assertively to add sexual orientation and gender identity to their policy, and we succeeded,” Cutrona said. PFLAG hosted a table at the Iowa Pride Conference this year to show their support and be able to provide resources to students there. “We’re basically a place that anybody can come to find support, to get educated, to be involved in equality here in Ames,” Drury said. Drury said the PFLAG website has resources for students having trouble coming out to their parents, looking to figure out their sexual orientation or gender identity, and other resources. “We’ve seen parents go from being just dismayed and crying and hopeless to being active community advocates for their kids; it’s pretty remarkable,” Cutrona said.

PFLAG has meetings open to anyone on the second Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. at Youth and Shelter Services in downtown Ames. At the meetings, members give encouragement and support to one another and share their stories. PFLAG also provides some sort of program for education at each meeting. “We’ve had speakers such as Zach Wahls, Donna Redwing, CEO of One Iowa and others,” Drury said. They have also shown educational films on LGBT subjects. “We would go and we would walk, we would participate in the Des Moines Pride Parade every year and carry signs that say ‘We love our gay children,’ that kind of thing; we always got a lot of cheers,” Cutrona said. PFLAG hosts tables at events such as the Iowa Pride Conference and the annual FACES celebration in Ames. Drury works for a family physician in Nevada. As LGBT patients came in, she heard

Drury said she realized, “They are marginalized in the medical community.” “I always wanted to be involved in a meaningful way doing something that was going to change the world in a meaningful way and help people,” Drury said. She felt there had to be a way she could help the community she saw being treated poorly. She figured PFLAG would be a good start. She found the Ames chapter on Google and

Drury said PFLAG has young and old lesbian, gay and transgender people, parents, grandparents and siblings.

Politics need to be left out of Regents While we students were away on Spring Break and Ames was a little more calm than usual, Gov. Terry Branstad’s three nominees to the Iowa Board of Regents appeared before the Iowa Senate’s Education Committee for a routine interview in which senators could ask them questions about their qualifications. Those three nominees were Craig Lang, currently the president of the Board of Regents; Subhash Sahai, a Webster City doctor; and Robert Cramer, a businessman from Grimes. Interestingly, the Senate committee recommended that the full Senate confirm Sahai, a Democrat, as a new member of the board but did not recommend that Lang or Cramer, both of whom are Republicans, be confirmed. The past few years have seen the Board of Regents fraught with controversy over Regents member Bruce Rastetter’s involvement with his former company’s plans for developing a large amount of land in Tanzania, and in the past few months the regulations on Iowa State’s Harkin Institute of Public Policy have ballooned into accusations that Lang and Rastetter want to restrict academic freedom. The treatment of Cramer’s hearing and the rationale offered for not recommending his confirmation, however, is absurd. When the senators of the Education Committee questioned Cramer, what caught attention is their emphasis on his social conservatism — especially his opposition to legal accommodations for homosexual behavior. “Over the last decade, a lot of people, let’s say, evolved in their views with regard to sexual orientation and gay rights. I was not persuaded today that he has,” said the committee’s chairman, Sen. Herman Quirmbach (D-Ames). To top it all off, student leaders at the three regent universities in Iowa — including the president and vice president of the Iowa State Government of the Student Body, Jared Knight and Katie Brown — wrote a letter to all the members of the Iowa Senate urging them to not confirm Cramer’s nomination. The Board of Regents governs Iowa’s three public universities, including Iowa State. But look around you: How much intolerance is there directed at one sexual orientation or another? How much of that intolerance is due to policy? If sexual orientation truly is a matter of a person’s private life, and if public bodies such as the Board of Regents should have no role in governing it, then let it be so. The members of the Board of Regents and applicants for nomination to it must be allowed to concern themselves with governing the regent universities in Iowa rather than covering themselves in a cloak of political correctness. The current atmosphere of paranoia around Cramer’s beliefs is premature. If ever there was a litmus test, this is it. Context is important. Regardless of Cramer’s previous political opposition to expanding anti-discrimination laws to include homosexuals or his opposition to same-sex marriage, the Board of Regents has little to do with promoting or working against acceptance of and opportunity for homosexuals. Even if it can do so, the Regents’ pond is small. State-level rules supersede those of the Board of Regents. Given that structural attribute, why all the fuss?

Teachers deserve our respect W
hen I was growing up, my mother always taught me to respect those around me. Not only authority figures in my life, but my friends and siblings as well. There are a lot of things that go into being respectful, such as being kind and courteous. While growing up we learn a number of things about how to treat people, from school, family, the media, etc. It’s kind of strange then, that these days I see so much disrespect exhibited and it seems to be a never-ending cycle. Are we really becoming more and more disrespectful, sarcastic and insensitive? The most astounding manifestation of disrespect that I find on a daily basis is in the classroom. It’s not what you’d think — classmates being harsh to one another. No, it’s an issue between the student and the teacher. It’s difficult for me to believe that students who are supposed to be the subordinate of the teacher act in such thoughtless ways. They’re not always as polite as they should be. It’s bothersome to those who are trying to pay attention in a class that they really enjoy when there are some obnoxious, bimbo-headed girls or some snapback enthusiast and his “bros” behind me gabbing about their drunken escapades the weekend prior. Of course, from time to time I’m checking the time on my phone or returning a text message — I won’t try to hide that. All the teachers I’ve had really cherish the opportunity they have to enrich us and teach us their passion in life. There are a lot of instances where students aren’t giving the teacher what they deserve in
By Kevin.Doerzman @iowastatedaily.com terms of kindness and attention. First, students get up and walk out of class without any regard for those trying to listen. They don’t even attempt to leave quietly. I understand that sometimes there’s a job that a student has to get to or some prior engagement. It’s really bothersome when a huge percentage of the class takes off after a pop quiz. It’s even worse when you come to class every time, study hard and take notes, and those people want the answers to a group quiz. Second, it’s really disruptive to the entire class to have people showing up 15 minutes late routinely. Of course, there are times when we all mess up and the alarm clock malfunctions, or the janitor was cleaning the bathroom. I’ve seen students walk in 15 to 20 minutes late routinely. When this happens, all attention shifts away from the teacher and onto Mr. or Ms. Fashionably Late. I love it when a teacher calls out a student who is punctual about their tardiness. Why do people spend the money if they don’t want to go to class and receive the gift of education? Third, is it too difficult to make sure your phone is silenced before class begins? Even putting it on vibrate is disruptive. A hardwood desk plus a buzzing brick of an iPhone doesn’t necessarily help the class concentrate. In one of my classes, someone was either playing Words with Friends or was really popular on Twitter, because their phone beeped about a dozen
times. Usually after the first beep or ring of a phone, the individual gets really embarrassed and shuts it off. Yes, there are times when it’s necessary to have your phone on vibrate. We all know that it’s acceptable if there’s a family or work issue, but not if you’re making plans to party this Friday night. Fourth, and probably the most disrespectful behavior concerning classroom etiquette: people who talk back to the teacher. Is it not enough that they have to spend all that time and money to be able to teach us? In one of my classes, it’s almost a daily occurrence. I should keep tally and see if we can set a record for most days without an incident. Yes, people complain a lot in their mundane lives which they so desperately want us all to revolve around. Yet what the teacher says goes. They make the rules, and they give the grades. There’s a reason they’re in front of the class and you’re in the desk. It’s to shut your mouth, pay attention and get a good grade so your parents will pay your cell phone bill. That way, you can tweet during calculus. I think we all need to take a little bit of time and rearrange our thinking processes. Stop being so self-centered and try to have better manners toward our teachers. They put in so much effort to make sure we learn as much as possible. We should be taking advantage of the opportunities we have here at Iowa State.

Hateful words can’t be hidden away
he Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center held an event Thursday to raise money for homeless gay and lesbian youth. Amy Pascal was one of the speakers at the event. Pascal advocated to Hollywood folk to change the way homosexuality is portrayed and written, for the overall greater good. Her idea to turn the often social stigma of homosexuality to something else — the stereotypes so often used that make homosexual characters defined by their sex, rather than by the character’s overall personality — is a good one. Film after film, sitcom after sitcom, homosexual characters are more often introduced by their sexuality, and the character traits written for them are centered around the more flamboyant or politically-driven homosexual stereotypes. Yes, the gay man that has a lisp and speaks with descriptive terms such as “fabulous” is a real thing, and I know men that act in such a manner. But not all gay men act or speak that way; most don’t. So why is that the majority default character traits in character presentation? General information: The Iowa State Daily is an independent student newspaper established in 1890 and written, edited, and sold by students
By Gabriel.Stoffa @iowastatedaily.com The answer is because much of television viewers and moviegoers still subscribe to outdated terms and descriptions in order to attempt to understand the rapidly changing world around them. That, and Hollywood is happy to pander to them because it is easier overall on the narrative side. Changing homosexuality on page and screen to be a generally trivial detail when the plot is not specifically about homosexuality is the way to go. So there is the good part. The “bad” part about is a bit more complicated. Pascal said, “How about next time, when any of us are reading a script and it says words like fag, or faggot — homo — dyke — take a pencil and just cross it out. Just don’t do it.” That is an incredible, and from my view ill-conceived, proposition. Yes, it would be nice if actual

derogatory, hurtful and directly harmful use of “fag” or “homo” or “dyke” were stricken from the vocabularies of all people across the world when dealing with other human beings. However, simply nixing those words from movies and television when they are a part of day-to-day speech isn’t going to get rid of people using those words hatefully. The entertainment media is a powerful machine, but like the issue of violence, cutting an element of reality out of what is seen and heard in fictional representations of life is not going to make the world holds hands and sing “Kumbaya.” Pascal’s plea is a whole-heartedly heart-warming attempt to make this world a “better” place. But sentiments like that are rarely the answer. Pascal’s suggestion to cross out hate words is noble but not viable. Even if “bad” words are cut from our language, some folks will continue to use them. When we strike words from our language just because those words are used in an “ugly” manner, we give those words more power.

We have to allow the words to exist and try to let people come around to seeing how certain uses can be hurtful. But we must maintain the freedom for people to say what they please; within accordance of the Supreme Court rulings of course. When we deny certain words, we are no better than the ignorant school boards and other such people that banned “Catcher in the Rye” and other such books for “vulgarity” and other nonsense. I am fairly certain Pascal had no intention of wanted to stifle words and art, but she did make the slip up. And when a media figure makes a mistake, it needs to be called out before any damage is done. Hopefully the overall message from her about making homosexuality a normality, rather than pretending to make it a big deal will come to fruition. But along the way, we still must be careful about what we tell other to or not to say.

ALUMNA RETURNS FOR TRUNK SHOW By Kate Bruce ISD Style Writer
Photo s Cou rtesy of Rub yBritt
On Thursday, Chelsea Stumo, an ISU apparel, merchandising and design alumna, will host a trunk show with Portobello Road Boutique. The trunk show will feature designs from her spring and summer 2013 line. Stumo describes her RubyBritt line as one that caters to the contemporary woman with a fast-paced lifestyle. Her line offers a transitional style in which pieces can be worn going from one event any given day to the next. “My pieces are something that a woman can carry in her wardrobe for a long time,” Stumo said, “and also wear a number of ways.” Stumo takes classic designs and brings them to the modern day to make her customer look put-together and up with the trends. In the spring line in particular, Stumo said she focused on contrasting bright tones with something dark. Stumo expressed that she is excited to partner together with fellow alumna Talia Jensen. The two apparel majors graduated from Iowa State in 2009, and Jensen is now the owner of Portobello Road Boutique. “The possibility of having my line carried in the local boutique in Ames
is exciting,” Stumo said, “instead of my usual boutique in a big city.” It did not take Stumo long to establish her own line after graduating from Iowa State. “I knew I wanted to have my own clothing line one day,” Stumo said. “And once I graduated, it kind of just seemed like the right timing to venture out into my own business.” Stumo was recently declared a top 10 finalist for Texas’ Next Top Designer. Along with this accomplishment, three RubyBritt designs were used in a feature film to be released this year, “Rumors of Wars.” She had never thought of working in film until a Hollywood costumer/stylist expressed interest in her line. “He understood my brand concept.” Stumo said. “My whole goal is to produce great garments to make women feel like a million dollars.” Stumo was pleased to announce that the costumer wants to continue working with her. She also said following the shoot, the main actress in the film bought every dress she had worn. She is excited to see how her pieces will look on the big screen. “Having stuff like this happen organically is really cool; you just don’t know what to expect,” Stumo said. The pieces chosen for the film were selected from Stumo’s spring and summer 2013 line, which will be the line featured at the Portobello Road Boutique trunk show.
STUDENT CREATES VEGAN LIPSTICK ISU senior makes, launches her own line of daring hues By Jessi Wilson ISD Style Writer “It’s more than a lipstick,” said Teonna Flipping, senior in speech communication, about her new line of handcrafted, vegan lipsticks set to launch in June. “To me, it represents barriers.” Lip Conscious — a name derived from one being conscious about ingredients in lip products and, like the definition of a conscious state, one’s awareness of and responses to their surroundings — embodies Flipping’s journey to discovering her passion for making her own vegan lipsticks. “It’s funny when people ask me, ‘How did this idea for Lip Conscious come about; how did you start making lipstick?’ because I don’t really have this pretty ‘Aha!’ story where one day I woke up and I had it,” said Flipping. “It came from connecting the dots.” Flipping, a previous beauty intern for InStyle, said she loves cosmetics and was excited for her internship, which took place in New York City. “But I just felt sad. I had this burden on me, like these girls are amazing,” Flipping said of the other interns, “I knew I loved beauty, and I knew I needed a spark of independence.” Following her internship, still unsure of how to make herself stand out professionally, nonvegan Flipping was inspired by her vegan family to start her own business, which would

be tailored to vegan needs, and tried out numerous ideas — including a vegan pizza stand or smoothie bar. “One day I was just online, looking at beauty-
related stuff, and I came across this article to make lipstick with crayon and I thought that was really neat,” Flipping said. “I just fell in love with this idea.”
Researching ingredients in her store-bought lipsticks further justified the use of vegan lipstick for Flipping. “I began to take my Mac lipstick and look on the back and said ‘Oh, what’s that? What’s that?’” Flipping said, “And so I would type stuff in [Google] like carmine — beetles’ wings.” Noticing the lack of vegan lipsticks in vibrant hues in stores like Whole Foods, Flipping came up with the idea of making a colorful vegan lipstick line. “The colors are bold; they’re vibrant, and they make statements.” Flipping said. “It’s for the bold and for the unapologetic — that’s what I love about it.” Flipping described the creation of her handcrafted lipstick line as a testimony of trial and error. “My first batch was terrible,” Flipping said about the emerald concoction — inspired by the 2013 Pantone Color of the Year. “I made a mess. But I just began to practice every morning, making lipstick.” Developing the perfect consistency and focusing on vegan-friendly ingredients, such as avocado oil, shea oil, almond oil and titanium dioxide, led to the completion of the unique lipstick line. “It’s a long process but I love it,” Flipping said. “I will stay up until four in the morning doing it.” Lip Conscious lipsticks are priced at $12 each and Flipping plans to pass out samples of her line during Veishea. “This year with this lipstick launch, I’m breaking out of my shell,” Flipping smiled. “I’m going to go for it.”

Iowa State to face off No. 4 seed Georgia The madness continues for No. 5-seeded Iowa State on Monday night when it will face off against No. 4 seed Georgia in Spokane, Wash. It is the 12th time in school history Iowa State has advanced to the second round. The Lady Bulldogs (26-6, 12-4 SEC) moved their way into the second round after beating No. 13 seed Montana. The Cyclones (24-8, 12-6 Big 12) routed Gonzaga 72-60 in the first round. One positive notion for Iowa State after its win was an unheard-of free-throw percentage. On Friday, senior Chelsea Poppens went 8-for-9 at the charity stripe, making her free-throw percentage the best for the school in tournament history. The Cyclones shot 94.4 percent from the free-throw line on 17-of18 free throws. One malady in Iowa State’s performance against Gonzaga was high amounts of turnovers. Iowa State had 23 to Gonzaga’s nine. “The team works hard together. Usually, you don’t win games where you turn the ball over 23 times, but we kept fighting,” said ISU coach Bill Fennelly. The official tip time for the second round game is 8:15 p.m. CST on Monday night. — Stephen Koenigsfeld

Cyclones stagger in day 3 Iowa State places 11th after promising start to NCAA tournament By Jake.Calhoun @iowastatedaily.com DES MOINES — A bittersweet ending to an uplifting tournament played out as both a cure and a curse for ISU coach Kevin Jackson. On Friday, three of Jackson’s Cyclones pushed their way through the wrestlebacks of the 2013 NCAA Championships to earn All-American honors after failing to place anybody in 2012. After each going 4-0 through the wrestlebacks on Friday, both Moreno (165 pounds) and Gadson (197) lost their last two matches to finish sixth at their weights on Saturday to end their inaugural stands at nationals. “I didn’t end the tournament the way I wanted to,” Gadson said. “It’s something to build on, learning experiences and whatnot. I’ll take it all in and gather myself.” Gadson wrestled with a heavy heart throughout the tournament almost two weeks after his father died from a year-long battle with cancer. After the controversial ending in his loss to No. 11-seeded Blake Rosholt (Oklahoma State), Jackson said Gadson seemed unfocused in his following matches, during which he posted a 4-2 record. “It just looked like everything caught up to him a little bit; it just looked like he was in a cloud out there,” Jackson said of Gadson. “It

But we haven’t been in the situation at the NCAA tournament that we’ve been in throughout the year — his father passed away and this is his first competition since that.

In Elizabeth Stranahan’s final performance in Hilton Coliseum, the senior gymnast raised her team to levels it hadn’t reached in five years. Iowa State has not held outright secondplace honors since the 2007-08 season. Last year, it tied with Missouri, which left the Big 12 after the season, for second place when Oklahoma walked away as the outright champion. “This is the team we have been expecting to see all year,” said coach Jay Ronayne. “For various reasons we weren’t able to get the athletes that were in today to compete at the level they are competing at.” Iowa State scored a final 196.175 with scores of 49 or better in all events. Oklahoma finished with a score of 197.200 while West Virginia ended the day with 194.675. In his seventh season, Ronayne led his team to its highest Big 12 Championship score since 2006, when the team won its last title, but he did it with the help of his lone senior. Stranahan placed third in the all-around and broke a team record with a score of 39.175. “It was fantastic,” Stranahan said. “Not

But the foul called was on Clyburn, as Ohio State’s Craft drew a charge under the basket, sending him to the free-throw line, where he tied the game at 75-75. The only bucket for the rest of the game was Craft’s, sending Ohio State into the round of 16. Craft’s dagger marked the fifth game in which the Cyclones have lost in the waning moments, adding another tally alongside both overtime losses to Kansas, the Oklahoma State lastsecond loss on a shot by Marcus Smart and the Texas loss that was sent into double overtime on a last-second shot. “We’ve seen so many buzzer-beaters and so many shots go in at the last couple seconds of the game, about four or five of our games and a lot of overtimes,” said ISU point guard Korie Lucious. “It just broke my heart for us to go through it again as hard as we’ve been working this year we knew this was our opportunity to try and make a run and make a name for Iowa State, and Aaron Craft just made a nice play.” Aside from the charge call and Iowa State’s run, something much bigger was happening at the end of the bench, or more specifically, it wasn’t happening. Iowa State’s All-Big 12 defensive player Chris Babb sat with ice on the left ankle that he sprained going in for a layup with 2:17 left in the first half. Babb didn’t play the rest of the game after he and the team doctor decided he couldn’t go in. “My last college game to go like that,” Babb trailed off. “I wanted nothing more than to get out there and play with our team, but I would’ve

put our team at a disadvantage if I really went out there. “It hurt definitely not to be out there, but I had a lot of trust in my team. They didn’t let me down at all. I’m proud of the way we fought.” All these events led to an emotion-filled locker room after the game. Niang wept talking about his love for his team amidst a sea of microphones and cameras, Babb sat with a left ankle enveloped by tape and ice like he did most of the second half, while the rest sat with heads down thinking of what could have been. If only a call would have gone one way, if only Babb hadn’t sprained his ankle, if only a different sequence of events had taken place to give Iowa State a win, putting them into the round of 16. But a sequence of events did take place to get Iowa State to this point. Hoiberg brought in
six transfers from all over the country to form this team — the same team that was picked to finish eighth in the Big 12, the same team that was picked to lose to Notre Dame in the first round, the same team that nearly beat the Big Ten Tournament Champions to get to the Sweet Sixteen. “I told those guys I love them,” Hoiberg said. “It’s heartbreaking for those six seniors who won’t put on an Iowa State uniform again. But for what those kids did for our program, to put Iowa State basketball back on the map, is an unbelievable thing. “Take it from a lifelong Cyclone that has a passion for athletic programs — and obviously specifically basketball because of my playing days and now my coaching days — for what they’ve done and what they’ve accomplished in the last two years, words can’t describe it.”
Before Ohio State’s Aaron Craft hit the gamewinning shot to defeat Iowa State in the third round of the NCAA tournament Sunday, there was a disputed charge called against ISU guard Will Clyburn. Clyburn was called for a charge while scoring a basket with 1:41 remaining in the game with Iowa State leading 75-75. Had a block been called on Ohio State, Clyburn would have scored with a chance at a free throw which could have put Iowa State in the lead at 78-74. NCAA head of official John Adams told CBS following the game that the wrong call was possibly made on the play: “You cannot establish legal guarding position standing in the restricted area. On the number of replays we’ve looked at, the case is being made that the defender had his foot up in the air hovering over the restricted area arc. If indeed that was the case, Craft, the defender, would not be in legal guarding position. “I know they’re doing the best that they can. It might be unreasonable to try to detect that little difference between being on the line and lifting your heel; it’s awfully hard to do in real speed. I think all of us have looked at the play a half a dozen times already in slow-motion and I’m still not convinced, honestly, that his foot was on the line. It probably was, but I haven’t seen really, really good evidence that it is.” —Alex Halsted

Fun Facts After Doyle killed off the popular Sherlock Holmes in the mid 1890’s, over 20,000 readers of The Strand (the magazine the stories were published in) cancelled their subscriptions. Later, a reluctant Doyle brought the character back to life for a series of further adventures. The first seedless grapes were kind of an accident. Thousands of years ago in the Middle East, a random genetic mutation caused a group of grapes to spontaneously abort their own seeds before the seeds could develop hard casings. The result: seedless produce. To reproduce the fruit, a sly farmer simply cloned the vine (with no seeds, there’s nothing to plant)—meaning that all seedless grapes today are direct descendants of that one mutated grape vine. The term “skid road” (or “skid row”) originated in Seattle. The actual road, Yesler Way, was used during the late 1800s to haul (skid) logs to the Yesler saw mill at the bottom of the hill. It became a rather seedy district eventually and became known as “Skid Road,” and the name caught on. Pigs are no longer commonly employed to rustle up truffles; speciallytrained dogs (who are equally adept at the job) have now taken their place. Those doves released at weddings and other formal ceremonies are actually white homing pigeons. True ring-neck doves are bred to be kept as pets and rarely survive out of captivity.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today is an 8 -- Ride out the storm, and calm another’s fears. Take a moment to catch your breath. Conjure ideas for an additional income stream, now and for the long run. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Today is an 8 -- Work out your differences so that you can move forward with ease. You can really handle it. It’s worth taking the time. Postpone parties and meetings. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Today is a 9 -- State your position firmly, and be willing to be flexible, up to a point. An objective perspective helps. Enough talking about it.

I’ve beaten the third-place kid [Oklahoma State’s Tyler Caldwell] and it’s disappointing.” As one of three unseeded wrestlers who advanced to the semifinals in the wrestlebacks, Moreno fell to the fifth-place match after giving up back points galore in a 12-2 major decision loss to No. 3-seeded Peter Yates (Virginia Tech). “Truth be told, I just wasn’t ready to step on the mat that first match,” Moreno said. “I kind of tweaked my knee a little bit and it was all downhill from there.”

A video review — that seemed to take 10 minutes to Moreno — stalled his fifth-place match against Conrad Polz (Illinois), awarding Moreno him two back points that had previously been denied. The lull in action changed the pace of the match, giving Moreno a chance to catch up with Gibson the seventh-seeded Polz. “I heard the ref count [to] two, which if he counts two, it’s a reversal and you’d give me those back points,” Moreno said. “But we can’t leave it up to the ref — I shouldn’t have given up a takedown so quick. I don’t know what I was thinking.” Iowa State placed 11th overall with 41.5 team points — a stark contrast from the past two years. Last
been rough for me and going out there and doing a good vault for my team was really exciting.” Scores of 9.800 or better from Ivory, Stranahan and sophomore Caitlin Brown on vault, the Cyclones’ worst event so far this season had turned into one of their best performances. “We struggled on vault all year long,” Ronayne said. “It’s been our Achilles heel, especially at home when you start the meet off with vault. It’s very difficult to regroup the team right after a slow start. It suddenly became the norm after vault. We expected low scores.” Ivory was last to go on vault
season the Cyclones placed 35th overall without any All-Americans after placing 20th in 2011 with one All-American — 174-pound champion Jon Reader. Matt Gibson was the third AllAmerican to compete on Saturday, although his time on the mat was short-lived. Since he lost Friday night after having already earned All-America honors, Gibson dropped to the seventh-place match at heavyweight. It was there that he fell prey to The Citadel’s Odie Delaney, another unseeded All-American, getting pinned in 2:44. Gibson ends his career as a Cyclone with a 56-27 record in his three years of competition since transferring from Sienna College (California). “I’m real happy with the way my career has come to a close,” Gibson said. “I think it’s a real blessing to be able to be on that podium.” For Gadson, however, there is no

Them doing well gave me confidence to keep it going. That was exciting.” The momentum rose the rest of the day on all the other events following the vault and the team’s energy was surreal. “We had momentum right from the very beginning because we met our goal on vault,” Ronayne said. “We felt that it was the best performance on

Who missed out
After day one, Weatherman was the only Cyclone in the championship bracket after pulling off two-straight upsets to land in the quarterfinals. However, the redshirt freshman dropped to the wrestlebacks after losing to eventual runner-up Matt Brown (Penn State). Needing one win to become an AllAmerican, Weatherman lost to Ohio’s Cody Walters.

vault all year. Everyone could feel it. It was something you could actually touch.” Now that the Cyclones have completed their scheduled matchups they await the selection committee’s choice on whether they advance to NCAA Regionals or whether their season is complete. “It’s very encouraging that this happens right at the end of the season towards championship time,” Ronayne said of his team’s high score. “If we’re fortunate enough to be selected to move on to the first round of NCAAs then we are the most ready we have been all year.”

184 Boaz Beard (RJr.) Beginning with a win in the pigtail at 184 pounds, Beard fell to the wrestlebacks after falling to eventual fifth-placer Ethen Lofthouse (Iowa). After notching bonus points in his first match in wrestlebacks, Beard fell to Missouri’s Mike Larson in a 2-1 decision to take an early bow from the tournament. Had he won that match, Beard would have needed to win again in order to be assured at least eighth place.
Spring Break advantage With practices during Spring Break, the Cyclones were able to simulate situations that occur in meets. “We did a lot of meet simulation things this week,” said coach Jay Ronayne.”Because it was Spring Break we had the opportunity to have the extra time if we needed it. We didn’t actually use it, but just knowing that we could go eight hours if we wanted to we were able to create situations that were more like being in a competition. That helped the team a lot this weekend.” The team was able to separate balance beams so each gymnast could perform one at a time away from the team like they would in competition. “We were able to simulate what it was like to have to team separated from that competitor and we tried to make the same sounds that happen in a meet to make them feel like they were competing,” Ronayne said.
