Senior player pursues success at Iowa State By Dean.Berhow-Goll @iowastatedaily.com Like a lot of basketball success stories, this one starts in a gym. It began 15 years ago at the YMCA in Milwaukee, where if one walked in through the gym doors, he or she

would find a young basketball player working with his mentor. Shot after shot, drill after drill, hour after hour and day after day, the young Korie Lucious was working with the father he loves on the game he loves. It didn’t matter what time of day — as early as 6 a.m. before school or after school when his homework was done — Lucious was in the gym for three to four hours at a time, crafting and fine-

tuning his game with his father and teacher, Antone Brazil. During those countless workouts, it sometimes took Lucious a while to find himself. When he would mess up, his dad would let him know. Lucious has and always will call him his biggest critic, but also his biggest fan. “Working out with my dad pushing me 100 percent, sometimes it’s like, ‘Man get off my back,’” Lucious said. “At the same time, he wanted to

see me succeed; he knew the potential I had.” Once he did come around, it was exactly what Brazil wanted to see and why he was pushing him so hard. “I don’t beat around the bush,” Brazil said. “I’ll always tell him like it is.” In middle school, Lucious was one of the bigger kids in class and consid-

Iowa 4-H experiences changes Costs increase, funds decrease for youth camp By Meghan.Johnson @iowastatedaily.com Summer of 2013 will bring changes to 4-H camps all across Iowa, but it will not end the entire program. Luann Johansen, program manager of ISU youth and 4-H, described the changes in 4-H when she said, “We have these current

financial realities of increasing costs and decreasing funds. “Plus, we have had changes in our program staff. So that is what brought about the very difficult decision to not offer the traditional residential and day camp to the general public at the Iowa 4-H Center this summer.” Even though programs are being cut from 4-H, all the existing rental commitments at the Iowa 4-H Center are to be honored this summer. According to ISU Extension and Outreach, one

in five school-aged youths participates in 4-H in Iowa. It is the largest youth development organization in the United States. Iowa State is home to the 4-H Youth Development headquarters and is available through ISU Extension and Outreach offices. The Iowa 4-H Center is owned by the Iowa 4-H Foundation, which is a charitable organization. Johansen made it very clear that through the finan-

Movement supports eliminating ‘r-word’

ISU students pledge against hurtful term

The r-word is, for some people, a very common word for people to use casually, without realizing the possible effect of the eight-lettered word “retarded.” Spread the Word to End the Word is “an online kind of a movement;

people can pledge their support [to stop the usage of the r-word],” said Nathan Smith, junior in environmental science. Smith said that the awareness day of Spread the Word to End the Word is celebrated everywhere. The awareness day, Wednesday, will be sponsored by a website called R-Word. The website and the awareness day aim to “keep the conversation going” and for individuals to identify that the use of the r-word, both intentionally or unintentionally,

will hurt not only mentally disabled individuals, but also their family members, Smith said. Through pledging, an action is not exactly taken, but the individual shows acceptance to intellectually and developmentally mentally disabled individuals; it is a way of supporting the denial of the word’s negative usage in a daily context, Smith said. Smith explained that the various recommended ways to get involved and actions that can be taken to fur-

ther support and form more awareness in other people will be shown after an individual pledges on the website. “I’m not officially affiliated with them; I signed the pledge,” Smith said. “The reason it’s important to me is I’ve worked with people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, and I’ve seen how unintentional uses of the r-word can still be hurtful to them even though the

Hall of Pride

ISU pays tribute to agriculture Display features video, activities By Charles.O’Brien @iowastatedaily.com Agriculture has long been a cornerstone in Iowa’s history, and the Iowa Hall of Pride has decided to pay tribute to this sector along with the help of the ISU College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The Iowa Hall of Pride, which opened eight years ago and is located in downtown Des Moines, was initially started to pay tribute to Iowa high school extracurricular activities. It has since branched off into areas that honor Iowa’s history, like agriculture. “We wanted to showcase what is good in Iowa,” said Jack Lashier, director of the Iowa Hall of Pride. “Agriculture is an industry people are moving farther and farther away from, and we wanted to give people a way to connect to it.” The agricultural exhibit, which opened Dec. 19, 2012, features interactive activities and displays the growing cycle of corn using time-lapse photography. Lashier said the main goal of the exhibit is to educate the

children that visit the Hall of Pride about the agricultural sector; the Iowa Hall of Pride has about 50,000 child visitors every year. The exhibit also includes a video kiosk which features testimonies by six current ISU students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and by Dean Wendy Wintersteen. The students describe their majors, the different career opportunities that the agriculture industry can offer and their experiences at Iowa State. One student participant in the exhibit, Nathan Johnston, senior in agricultural business, stressed the need to educate Iowa’s youth about agriculture and how a person does not have to have an agricultural background to work in agriculture.

“It is important to educate the youth about agriculture because of how huge of an economic driver it is and how it impacts how we live our lives every day,” Johnston said. Funding for this exhibit came from a collaboration between agriculture companies and individuals, with an end result of $335,000 for the exhibit. Wintersteen said the college was approached by Charles Sukup, president of Sukup Manufacturing Co., about this exhibit, asking if they were interested in partaking in it. “We were blown away by the quality of the exhibits,” Wintersteen said. “The message is fantastic, and we immediately knew how important it was to be part of it.” Wintersteen, in her video portion, spoke about the op-

portunities Iowa State held and the growing need in the agriculture sector. She said that the population of the college had grown 30 percent from 2006 to 2010 and highlighted the college’s job placement rate over the past decade, which has been 97 to 98 percent. Wintersteen said that participating in this exhibit was important for the college in order to maintain an informed population so the right kind of policies can be made in the future, and to keep things moving in the right direction. “So many people think agriculture is just about farming, but there are so many other things that are part of it,” Wintersteen said. “Children will now see and understand agriculture more and will hopefully increase their interest in it.”

Custodian chases cross-country dream ISU employee takes plunge with Joyce Bricker’s biking adventure journey By Miranda.Freeman @iowastatedaily.com “Someday” is finally here for an ISU custodian. Joyce Bricker, employed by Iowa State for over 30 years, is finally beginning her dream adventure with a cross-country bike trip. “Someday. I’m gonna not wait for someday,” Bricker said. “Do whatever that thing it is you want to do and do it.” Bricker began planning this trip in 2009 and will leave Wednesday. She finally decided to no longer wait to accomplish this dream and advises others to do the same. Bricker took up crosscountry biking because of her neighbor. “He encouraged me to do this,” Bricker said. “He accomplished 38 Rag Rides and finished riding when he was 84 because of his Alzheimers. I really wish I can tell him about me doing this trip, but he doesn’t remember that he used to bike.” She will be biking with Bubba’s Coast To Coast Ride and will bike through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama to reach her final destination: Florida. This trip will take one month to finish, and the bikers will ride about 85 miles a day.

>>4-H.p1 cial realities and changes happening in 4-H, the children and their experiences are priorities. “The center is not closing, but there will be camp offerings that will not be sponsored by the state program,” said John Roosa, a camp manager. Roosa was not allowed to say much according to policy at the ISU Extension and Outreach Program, but Julie Roosa, wife of John Roosa, expressed her concern as a parent of two children who participate in 4-H camps. The Roosas were planning on sending their two children to day camp this summer through the 4-H program, but now will not be able to. “The information I’ve seen doesn’t make sense to me as a parent.

“One lady has done this four times before; she scares me,” Bricker said. During the times the bikers are not cycling, they will be getting to know each other. “Bubba encouraged us to email one another and write up an introduction of ourselves so you have some kind of notion as to who you are going to be riding with,” Bricker said. Bricker has been doing bike tours since 1980 and said the average age of the bikers on this trip is 61. Bricker explained that because this trip is in the middle of spring semester, not many young college bikers can do it. “I am lucky enough to why they would cut camps. That is their revenue stream. It doesn’t add up to me as a parent,” Julie said. Iowa 4-H is a program that helps children develop leadership, citizenship, communication and life skills. Julie also showed her concern with what 4-H programs offer when she said, “It’s unfortunate anytime that you eliminate programs for kids to be outside in a structured environment, like what 4-H camp offers.” The 4-H Club plans to add other camping experiences while also hiring program staff to facilitate camp programs, including archery, aquatics, a climbing wall, creek walks and science. The hope of the changes in Iowa 4-H is to make a more effective and efficient program for youth.

have worked for Iowa State University for so long that they will allow me to take this much time off,” Bricker said. Bikers pay a fee to be a part of this trip. Steve Lauber, employee of Bike World in Ames, gave suggestions as to what Bricker will need for her trip.

Concerning her bike, Lauber suggests for her to ride, “the one she likes, but a nice road bike would be best.” Bricker knows the dangers of biking; she has biked through Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Montreal and more. “I’ve been hit by a truck!” Bricker said. “One person has

personally sensitive topic, and he does not approve of how it is often used so casually in conversation. “It does hurt them whether they can emotionally show it or not, or whether they choose to emotionally show it,” Swanson said. Morgan feels that using the r-word to describe something unpleasant is unacceptable and is not a term that should be used casually. Morgan believes the term should not be used at all because it portrays discrimination. Smith said that it is a universal effort to overcome the usage of the r-word, and the degree of involvement is up to the individual after they pledge. To stop the usage of the r-word in a casual context is somewhat hard, but not impossible, Ward said.

“Never ride alone when riding a bike,” Bricker said. Bricker is very excited to finally accomplish her crosscountry dream. “My husband is nervous; he said if I wanted to give up he would come pick me up,” Bricker said. “But I never gave up a ride before,” Bricker said.

>>R-WORD.p1 people saying it don’t necessarily know.” Chris Ward, graduate student in political science, Kira Swanson, senior in management, and Alex Morgan, sophomore in pre-business, said they would pledge to R-Word. org to help support Spread the Word to End the Word. “I guess the biggest thing for me is, people aren’t intentionally saying it and they’re not meaning to hurt other people when they do it, but there’s a lot of people who hear the r-word used who might have a family member with some sort of disability,” Smith said. “They’ll sit there and sometimes they won’t necessarily call them out about it or they won’t mention it to them, but it’s still hurting them. Just because they stay silent doesn’t mean they aren’t being hurt. I’ve seen how people are offended by it and don’t say anything.” He said mentally disabled individuals are incredible people despite their disabilities, adding, “they are as capable as we are.” Using the word to describe clumsiness or nonsense, when the word initially defined the condition of the mentally disabled, hurts the person who has such disabilities, Smith said. “The first thought that kind of comes to mind, I think of the disability, but also in general people using it the wrong way,” Ward said. “I’m not saying that the r-word is the disability; I’m just saying how people would describe it.” For Ward, the r-word is a

Education

Discussion required for solutions The old adage that “haste makes waste” is not a complete waste of breath, we learn from a recent study done by the Pew Research Center. In that study, Pew compared the overall reaction of Twitter users to important events over the past year (positive vs. negative, conservative vs. liberal) to broader public opinion. The results showed that the reaction to events such as President Barack Obama’s reelection, the presidential debates, a court decision on California’s Proposition 8, Obama’s second inaugural address and the State of the Union Address, the tone of the “conversation” on Twitter is much more liberal, much more conservative, or much more negative than scientifically measured public opinion across the country. As Pew noted, the demographics of Twitter users are considerably different from the general population. There is, however, another important attribute of Twitter. On most websites, viewers have the ability to click a button and share a link to the site — with their own comments — immediately. They can do so without thinking twice, without pausing to read it again and make sure they understand it. Analysis of this kind of feedback contrasts sharply with public opinion polling that studies the general population, who might read the same news or opinion on the Internet as the Twitter users Pew studied. They might watch the evening news every night, have cable news on the TV at all hours as background noise or listen to talk radio on the way to and from work. They might shout at the top of their lungs until they grow red in the face while they do so. But the traditional participant in a public opinion poll has the opportunity to respond to the news for at least a few hours to condense his thoughts and talk about them with his wife or children or coworkers or neighbors, before a researcher calls with a litany of questions as he sits down to dinner. The Twitter user, who has the ability to immediately say whatever comes to mind, does not necessarily have that same mandatory interlude. That interlude, between knowing about something and passing judgment on it in a public setting (in other words, to another person), allows an idea to be moderated and refined. Just think of what good would come if our government officials allowed themselves time to ruminate on the issues of our time. An example from recent events is the sequestration of federal spending, which will cut more than $1 trillion over the next decade. Since Congress and the president procrastinated on the issue during their reelection campaigns, they were unable to make a deal before its scheduled effective date, Jan. 1. Then they put off the sequester for another two months. Two months is hardly enough time to fix the federal budget. In the same way that responses to current events communicated through Twitter are more negative and more partisan than those of the general population, we should know by now that the same waste obtains in Congress. Without ample time in which to act and react and act again, members of Congress descend to the depths of partisanship and finger-pointing, rather than rising to the occasion and enacting a solution.

Sequester causes trouble

Attempt at tax reform could hurt students

T

he sequester has been the height of discussion in Washington, D.C., for the past few weeks and is yet another partisan issue that politicians in our nation’s capital will have to conquer. The $85 million in automatic budget cuts was approved at midnight on March 2 and will bring several effects that may be more detrimental than President Barack Obama and Congress realize. Both parties agree that the sequester will have negative effects. In Obama’s radio address, he said the spending cuts “will inflict pain on communities across the country,” costing jobs and slowing growth. The president also said that Republicans are to blame for the sequester due to the fact that Republicans did not want to close a tax loophole that may have helped reduce the deficit. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) argues that closing the loophole would give the Obama administration more tax revenue; she accused them of wanting to spend on stimulus projects and government programs. The sequester started as part of the 2011 agreement to break another Democrat and Republican budget disagreement, also known as raising the debt ceiling. It was even delayed for two months after Obama proposed the fiscal cliff. A huge misconception about the sequester is that it doesn’t affect college students. On the contrary, the consequences, which first surfaced in January, include 8.2 percent in cuts towards federal work study programs, $49 million in cuts to the Education Opportunity Grant program, both of which provide aid to students with exceptional need. Although the Pell Grant will be safe from the sequester, there are still millions of dollars taken away from education funding. As college students, we are at the forefront of the audience of those who will be negatively affected by the sequester. Approximately 33,000 students across the nation will be eliminated from the work-study program and 71,000 students will see reductions in their grants. Aside from the obvious effects this will have on America’s education system, education cuts will also affect the military. The sequester cuts will take away resources for students that give them the basic skills necessary for the military entrance exams. Currently, a quarter

By Katie.Henry @iowastatedaily.com of American students who don’t graduate or receive their GED aren’t able to serve in the military. On top of those numbers, 30 percent of high school students lack the basic math, science and English skills needed for the military entrance exams. Taking away education funding should clearly be the lowest priority for sequester cuts. Not only are there obvious effects such as taking away resources from schools, all of which need and deserve them, but the sequester cuts on education will in turn have a domino effect on the military: restricting who is able to join the military, which will have its own negative effects on itself, such as not having enough people out of high school who are able to pass the military entrance exams. The longer the effects of the sequester last, the more detrimental the effects on educa-

tion and the military will be. The biggest obstacle in solving these issues comes from the constant partisan divide in Washington. It’s no surprise that Obama and the GOP have extremely differing views on the fiscal policy, but these partisan beliefs are causing a delay in even deciding upon the terms of the sequester, which not only prolongs the length of the terms of the cuts but delays any solution that they could possibly come up with. Partisanship never solves anything if neither party is willing to compromise. Obama has said that the sequester is temporary as long as both sides can come to an agreement. It’s safe to assume that neither party wants to deal with the effects of the sequester, but the government has currently reached an impasse that can’t be dealt with if neither party will budge. The current and potential effects of the sequester are dangerous ones that we may not be able to afford or recover from. Agencies can’t submit budgets to Congress if Congress can’t agree on those budgets. If the sequester isn’t adjusted soon, we may be paying for it even more in the future.

Off-campus council Friend endorses backs Rediske-Bauer Hughes-Kletscher It is my pleasure to announce the ISU United Residents Off-Campus Council (UROC) endorsement of Senators Dan Rediske and Zach Bauer for their campaign to become the next Government of the Student Body (GSB) president and vice president. Convening on Feb. 6 with full attendance of the council, all members of the council voted unanimously to endorse the Rediske-Bauer campaign (www.rediskebauer.com), making UROC the first organizational endorsement of the 2013 GSB campaign. This conclusion was arrived at after carefully deliberating over the course of two weeks. Representing over 14,000 ISU students, making UROC the largest student constituency by far, the council is undivided in agreement that Rediske and Bauer are the kind of leaders ISU students need in the lead of GSB. Dan Rediske and Zach Bauer easily have the strongest records of achievement in helping and advancing the interests of Iowa State students. Rediske has been an LAS senator since his freshman year, and has served on the GSB Finance Committee and CyRide Board of Trustees for several years. Zach has served students as an Inter-Residence Hall Association senator, the General information: The Iowa State Daily is an independent student newspaper established in 1890 and written, edited, and sold by students

Senate Public Relations chair, and as an ISU Ambassador, the latter for which he took part in writing legislation for the Iowa legislature aimed at improving student life at the Regents’ universities. The amount of bills both Dan and Zach have sent through GSB to help students is immeasurable. Time and time again they have demonstrated their sincere commitment to Iowa State, whether it be by funding the clubs that make an ISU student’s experience so rich, improving the transparency of GSB with the new outreach program, or working on projects like the new CyRide NextBus system. Cyclones will go a long way in finding other GSB senators as active as Dan Rediske and Zach Bauer are. These reasons and many more too numerous to list here, combined with their stellar academics and sterling integrity and honesty, have made the decision for UROC to endorse the Rediske-Bauer campaign extraordinarily simple. We hope you will join us in supporting these two amazing and truly worthy students for GSB president and vice president. Please vote for them at vote. iastate.edu on March 11 or 12.

Cyclone, friend, leader. I cannot think of any three words that better describe Spencer Hughes. I met him my first day here at Iowa State; he was carrying the largest collection of ISU gear I have ever seen. He had it all — the flag that took up half a wall, the carpet with Cy printed right in the center and the face paint he would use at every home game. He didn’t hesitate to come over, introduce himself and teach me how to put my loft together. Since then, I have gotten to know Spencer very well. I hung out with Spencer and his roommate each night to watch “Sports Center” and “The Colbert Report.” Any time I was struggling with a decision or ethical dilemma, I turned to him. He never disappointed, no matter how many thousands of things he already had on his plate. He really has been busy; Spencer has served on the Government of the Student Body as a senator, the Speaker of the Senate and the Director of Student Affairs. He has also balanced a significant commitment to Dance Marathon with being a Cyclone Aide, hosting a radio show on KURE and the various projects he have led to help benefit ISU students. In case you haven’t had $62, annually, for the general public. The Iowa State Daily is published Monday through Friday during the nine-month academic year, except for university holidays, scheduled breaks and the finals week. Summer sessions: The Iowa State Daily is published as a semiweekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays, except during finals week.

time yet to check out Spencer’s platform (which can be found at www.hugheskletscher.com), Spencer believes student dollars should be used to benefit the students who pay them. He is also the first person in recent history who is willing to back those words up. He will not accept the full-ride fall and spring scholarships that every president and finance director of GSB receive. This action alone will save us up to $90,000 per year. Spencer is also leading the charge to allow students to use Dining Dollar$ at off-campus restaurants like The Fighting Burrito, so many of us won’t have to see our money go to waste at the end of the year. I have had a chance to sit down with a lot of student leaders at Iowa State, and I have never met anyone with more passion for Iowa State and its students. You can hear it in his voice when guiding students around campus as a Cyclone Aide, and you can see it in his cardinal-and-gold-painted face at football and basketball games. Spencer has our best interests at heart, and I trust him to do us proud. On March 11 or 12, I will vote for him to be our next GSB president at vote.iastate.edu.

Hallie Christofferson While she was fairly quiet during the nonconference portion of the season, Christofferson exploded during Big 12 play. She shot 88 percent from the free-throw line and averaged 16 points per game. Christofferson’s skill set, including being able to see an open shot on the court, will aid the Cyclones in the postseason.

It has been a season for the record books, to say the least, for Bill Fennelly and his band of Cyclones. Iowa State (21-7, 12-6 Big 12) finished the regular season Monday with a victory against Oklahoma State. The victory was fitting for the way Fennelly’s company played all season. Looking at the 2012-13 schedule, the Cyclones got off to a 13-1 start, which only included a loss on the road to the Hawkeyes (19-11, 8-8 Big Ten), who are most likely an NCAA tournament-bound team. Within that 13-1 start were two Big 12 victories to open the conference slate, the first an overtime victory against Texas and the second against Texas Tech on the road. Road play did not hinder the Cyclones terribly, as they went 5-4 in conference play on the road.

my wife likes it when I’m in my office. It’s all part of it. “You just beat yourself up about what could’ve, should’ve, would’ve happened.” When tallied up, three of the six conference losses were against the bottom half of the Big 12, two against No. 1 overall Baylor and the home loss to West Virginia (17-11, 9-8 Big 12), which is tied with Oklahoma State for fifth place in the Big 12.

>>SEASON.p5 Breaking down the losses Two of Iowa State’s six Big 12 losses came against Baylor, the No. 1 team in the country. Fennelly said before Baylor came back to Iowa State that it was a unique opportunity for his team. “It’s one of those games that everyone’s going to talk about,” Fennelly said before the Jan. 23 loss to the top-ranked Lady Bears. “Especially at home, those are special moments. ... You don’t get to play the No. 1 team in the country very often.” When those two losses are subtracted from Iowa State’s conference record, it is left with four more losses: At Oklahoma State on Jan. 20, at Kansas in double overtime on Jan. 30, West Virginia at home on Feb. 17 and at TCU on March 2. Looking at the NCAA tournament, the loss to TCU was one that hurt Iowa State the most. The double-overtime loss against Kansas in Lawrence, Kan., marked the third year in a row that the matchup between the two teams ended in extra time. Fennelly said that loss to Kansas was one of the toughest ones he has had to come to terms with. “[I was] afraid to sleep because of nightmares,” Fennelly said, referring to the game in a Feb. 1 interview. “That’s OK, this time of year;

Tourney time Before the loss to the last-place Horned Frogs, the Cyclones were on their way to a potential No. 4 seed in the NCAA tournament, according to experts at ESPN. Since then, Iowa State had dropped to a No. 6 seed and was set to face No. 11-seeded Duquesne. Note that these predictions were made before the conference tournaments. Some of the Cyclones’ biggest resume-building wins were season sweeps against Texas Tech (21-9, 11-7) and Oklahoma (21-9, 11-7). Another highlight on the Cyclones’ season came in the form of tooth-and-nail victory against Oklahoma State in the regular-season finale this past Monday. The icing on the cake was that the win against Oklahoma State was a dramatic one on senior night.

Iowa State in Big 12 tournament

Cyclone milestones

Set as the No. 2 seed in the Big 12 tournament, Iowa State will get a bye game in the first round of the conference playoff. The Cyclones will play the winner of the game between Kansas and TCU at 6 p.m on Saturday. If they win that game, they have an opportunity to play the Cowgirls, the Sooners or the Mountaineers. If things go down the projected route, and Iowa State wins their way to the championship game, they will most likely play Baylor for the Big 12 championship title. Baylor is currently No. 1 in the nation.

Senior Chelsea Poppens spoke of a past NCAA tournament game against UW-Green Bay and said the crowd at Hilton Coliseum on Monday hadn’t held that much enthusiasm since her freshman year. “I haven’t heard Hilton that loud in a while — our freshman year,” said senior Anna Prins. “I was trying to call out screens and I couldn’t even hear myself. It was awesome.” That “awesome” play will hope to carry over into the Big 12 tournament, which starts on Friday.

The 2012-13 season was one full of milestones for a few Cyclones, as well as the team in general. Chelsea Poppens became the second player alltime in school history to score 1,000 career points and 1,000 career rebounds. She was the 14th player in Big 12 history. Anna Prins also achieved the 1,000-career milestone this season. Prins ranks 21st in school history in career points at 1,088. Hallie Christofferson was the third and final Cyclone this season to score 1,000 career points. Only a junior, Christofferson led the team in freethrow shooting at 88 percent. She only missed eight free throws during conference play. The team reached its 13th 20-win season, which was the 12th under Bill Fennelly. The women’s team holds the Hilton Coliseum record for free-throw percentage (95 percent), after making 19 of 20 in its season finale. The 95 percent is also a Big 12 record. It was the fourth time in school history the Cyclones have locked the No. 2 seed in the Big 12 tournament.

The Cyclones grabbed the outright No. 2 seed for the Big 12 tournament with their victory against Oklahoma State. Iowa State will play either Kansas or TCU at 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Team faced challenges in weekend triangular Games vs. Alabama, Saint John’s produce mixed results for Iowa State By John.Barry @iowastatedaily.com

Photo: Jonathan Krueger/Iowa State Daily Senior Tori Torrescano pitches in the game against Indiana State on Feb. 10 at Bergstrom Complex. Torrescano pitched the whole game and gave up seven hits in the Cyclone win.

Going up against some of the nation’s best athletes can be a challenging but encouraging step in any season. The ISU softball team was in Tuscaloosa, Ala., for the Easton Classic during the first days of March. Two games against No. 1 Alabama and two games against Saint John’s would produce mixed results for the young team. In day one, Iowa State was down to its final out in the top of the seventh inning, trailing the Red Storm 9-7. Sarah Hawryluk walked and advanced on a fielder’s choice by Brittany Gomez, leaving the Cyclones with runners on first and second with Erica Miller at bat. Miller’s second career triple plated both runners to tie the game before Tori Torrescano’s home run gave the Cyclones their first lead since the third inning 11-9. Pitcher Taylor Smith (4-2) went on to close out the bottom half of the inning to get the win. “I think anytime you get a win like that, when you’re down to the last out, it will boost the team’s confidence and morale,”

Gomez said. “It showed us that we can score runs with our backs against the wall.” Iowa State dropped two games to Alabama during the weekend, losing 13-4 on March 1 and getting shut out the following day 6-0 against pitcher Jackie Traina. “Traina is one of the best pitchers we will face all year,” said ISU coach Stacy Gemeinhardt-Cesler. “She is similar to some of the top pitchers we will face in the Big 12 this year like Kellani Rickets of Oklahoma and Cainon of Baylor, so it’s great preparation for them.” In day two of the triangular, the Cyclones handled Saint John’s much easier. Miller led the team with a record-breaking seven RBIs and Gomez increased her steal total to 11 for the season as the team beat the Red Storm 11-1. Smith threw her second complete game of the season, allowing one run on seven hits. She walked none and struck out one. Miller continued her red-hot hitting with another home run and bumped up her batting average for the season to .512. “It’s great having [Gomez] and [Hawryluk] in front of me in the batting order,” Miller said. “I keep telling them that if they can get on base, I should be able to make contact and drive them in.” The Cyclones return to the field next at the Fresno State Classic on March 7-9 with competition starting at 7 p.m. Thursday against host Fresno State.

Cyclone players go into last home game with pride, hope

13 Okla. State

Iowa State

The first stretch of the Fred Hoiberg era is nearing its end. When Hoiberg returned to Ames in April 2010 to coach his alma mater, he brought with him a group of transfers to help build the program. Come Wednesday night, the last of that group will run on and then off the court at Hilton Coliseum one final time. “There’s definitely going to be a lot of emotion going into this last game,” said ISU senior Chris Babb, who has played two seasons and been at Iowa State for three. “Even though we didn’t play that first year, we’ve still been a part of [Hoiberg’s] whole era, and I think it’s kind of been a new face for Cyclone basketball the past few years. “To be a part of that is something special.” Babb and Anthony Booker have been a part of the team since the beginning of the Hoiberg era, and Austin McBeth is right there with them, having joined midway through Hoiberg’s inaugural season at the helm. Meanwhile, Tyrus McGee, Korie Lucious and Will Clyburn have spent two years each in Ames, with McGee playing for both seasons and Lucious and Clyburn playing this season. The group of six seniors has witnessed the NCAA tournament return to the picture — some on the court and some from afar — and has seen the return of “Hilton Magic” as Iowa State (19-10, 9-7 Big 12) has returned to the top 25 in NCAA attendance totals as of late. Now they’ll hear their names echo in Hilton one last time. “I remember my senior day,” Hoiberg said. “It was such a fun experience being on the court with my family. It’s a game you don’t forget, and I think these guys deserve a great send-off for helping us get this program on the right track.” The night comes with high stakes for Iowa State, too, as it welcomes No. 13 Oklahoma State (22-6, 12-4) in desperate need of a successful week to boost its NCAA tournament resume. The Cowboys beat the Cyclones in Stillwater, Okla., earlier this season 78-76. In

Notes: ■■ The Cyclones will enter the Big 12 tournament next week as either the conference’s No. 4 or No. 5 seed after Baylor lost Monday. The No. 4 and No. 5 seeds meet first in the tournament, meaning Iowa State will play on March 14 at 11:30 a.m. in Kansas City. ■■ Oklahoma State leads the all-time series against Iowa State 63-53 after winning earlier this season. The Cyclones beat the Cowboys at Hilton last season, 71-68.

that game, Iowa State led 74-70 late before allowing Oklahoma State to fight back for the win. The circumstances, combined with the magnitude of the night for the transfers, only heighten the game. “It’s a lot of emotion going into that,” Lucious said of senior night. “You spend your last two years at a university that gave you a shot playing your last collegiate basketball. It’s a big opportunity for us.” While the transfers took turns at different times in the past three seasons sitting out, they became known as “the best scout team in the nation.” Their time now is for real, and the players are thankful Hoiberg gave them the shot to play. “I think we kind of took that opportunity [to transfer] knowing this was our last shot to make something happen,” Babb said. “Whether it worked out or not at our previous school, this was our last opportunity. I think so far we’ve made the most of it. “[Hoiberg] took that chance on us and so we had that respect for him that he gave us that opportunity.”

>>LUCIOUS.p1 ering the size of his dad, uncles and his older brother — all of who are as tall as 6 feet — the now 5-foot-11 guard thought he was going to be 6-foot-6, or at least taller than he is now. Lucious played big, too, earning the early status of the best player in Milwaukee in his age group. Soon, he was getting recruited early and persistently by powerhouse Michigan State and coach Tom Izzo. Although he was pursued by the likes of Florida, Arkansas and Georgetown, the No. 10-ranked point guard in the class of 2008 always had dreamed of donning the emerald and white of a Spartan. “I didn’t take any visits or think about any other schools,” Lucious said. Fast forward to Lucious’ sophomore year, when his dream came to fruition. After All-Big Ten point guard Kalin Lucas went down with a torn Achilles tendon in the second round of the NCAA tournament against Maryland, Lucious stepped into shoes he’d been waiting to fill since he first set foot on campus in East Lansing, Mich. Down 83-82 with only 6.6 seconds left in the game, Michigan State’s Draymond Green dribbled up the middle of the court, passed to his right over a ducking Delvon Roe to Lucious, who took one dribble to his left and hit the game-winning shot that sent his beloved Spartans into the Sweet 16. “The second half of that Maryland game,” Lucious trailed off, smiling, looking out at Sukup Basketball Complex’s court, as if he were reimagining the buzzer-beater. “After that I was like ‘Yeah, it’s time to go.’” While he averaged less than five points per game during the regular season coming off the bench, in his starting role the sophomore averaged just under 11 and led his team to the Final Four before losing to national runner-up Butler 52-50.

In his junior year, Lucious’ points as a starter decreased, as did his playing time. Then on January 27, 2011, Izzo suspended Lucious from the team. Lucious didn’t wish to discuss his departure from his former school, and Michigan State did not respond to several interview requests from the Daily. “Unfortunately, Korie Lucious displayed conduct detrimental to the program,” Izzo said in a statement issued by the school at the time of the suspension. Nearly four weeks later Lucious announced he was transferring to Iowa State, but it only took a few hours for a Cyclone to reach out to him — and it wasn’t former Michigan State player Chris Allen, who at the time was sitting out the year after his transfer the year before. “The day I got kicked off the team, it wasn’t even Chris [Allen]; Diante [Garrett] called me,” Lucious said. “He said, ‘My coach, he’s got a scholarship for you.’” Lucious saw the transformation Garrett had made under Hoiberg and forecast the same fortune for himself. Under former coach Greg McDermott, Garrett averaged a pedestrian nine points and five assists. However, in Hoiberg’s NBA-style offense, Garrett nearly doubled his points per game and upped his assists, becoming one of the only players in the entire country to average more than 17 points and six assists. That was Iowa State’s pitch to Lucious: Come play at Iowa State in as guard-friendly of a system as anyone’s in the country. He bought in immediately. “Basically they said ‘You’re going to have the ball in your hands,’” Lucious said. “That’s how I wanted to play, and they sold me right there.” At the beginning of his only season as a Cyclone, Lucious struggled to find his niche while trying to make too many “home run” passes, as Hoiberg

Korie Lucious Age - 23 Height - 5-foot-11 Weight - 170 pounds PPG - 10.0 APG - 5.6 RPG - 1.7 ■■ He currently sits at No. 17 all-time in ISU history with 163 assists ■■ Lucious had a 1.4 a/t ratio in nonconference games, but has a 2.11 ratio in Big 12 play to rank fourth in the Big 12. ■■ Lucious’ last home game as a Cyclone will be Wednesday against Oklahoma State at 6 p.m.

put it. Lucious averaged more than five turnovers in his team’s losses during the early nonconference portion of the schedule, including seven in the loss at Carver-Hawkeye Arena against Iowa on Dec. 7, 2012. But just as he did in the Milwaukee YMCA all those years ago, Lucious came around — and it was exactly what Cyclone fans wanted to see. Now, with only three Big 12 games to go before postseason play, Lucious hasn’t had more than four turnovers since Dec. 19, 2012 — 18 games, which is nearly 70 days. “The big thing Korie has done as the season has gone along is how much safer he is with the ball,” Hoiberg said. “He can do so many things with it that at times, he tried to make the spectacular play instead of making the simple plays, and his assist numbers went up when he really started taking care of the ball.” As the turnovers went down, the assists went up. Now Lucious has 163 assists for the year, averaging just under six assists per game, flirting with the now-Phoenix Suns’ point guard Garrett’s mark two seasons ago.

File photo: Huiling Wu/Iowa State Daily Senior Korie Lucious is currently ranked No. 17 in assists in ISU history. The 5-foot-11 point guard will play his last home game as a Cyclone when the team faces Oklahoma State on Wednesday night at Hilton Coliseum.

Also with only the majority of one season under his belt, Lucious ranks No. 17 on Iowa State’s all-time assists list. Right now, Iowa State’s floor general is focused on doing what it takes to win — and getting Iowa State to its first back-to-back trips to the NCAA tournament since 2001-2002. Lucious knows he won’t be in cardinal and gold forever, though. When that time comes, Lucious will

try to lengthen his love for basketball, wherever it takes him. The love that first started so many years ago at that YMCA in Milwaukee. Shot after shot, drill after drill, hour after hour and day after day, the young Korie Lucious was working with the dad he loves on the game he loves. “Whatever it takes,” Lucious said. “I’m just trying to get paid to do what I love.”

Fun Facts In 1973, NASA launched Skylab, the first American space station. Three successive crews lived and worked there for more than 171 days. Knowing a call to the fire department would accomplish precious little from outer space, NASA and Honeywell International, Inc., developed an alarm system that would alert the station’s crew to smoke or fire. The smoke detector used on the space station is the same kind that is now found in 90 percent of U.S. homes. The phrase “slipping a Mickey” likely originated with Mickey Finn, a Chicago saloon owner known for drugging and robbing customers.

The Duckbill Platypus is one of the few mammals to produce venom. Both males and females have a pair of spurs on their hind limbs. The male’s pair of spurs delivers a cocktail of poisons that, while excruciatingly painful, is not lethal to most animals. In the Disney version of The Little Mermaid, Ariel and her sassy crab friend, Sebastian, overcome the wicked sea witch, and Ariel then swims off to marry the man of her dreams. However, in the original tale, the mermaid’s fins-for-feet exchange comes at a price—namely, that every step on her new legs causes her excruciating pain. And that’s not even the worst part—in the end, the prince marries someone else! Plastic bags take up less landfill space than paper bags. According to one study, two plastic bags take up 72% less landfill space than one paper bag. Ma

Health By Morgan.Casey AmesEats Flavors writer With Spring Break and swimsuit season fast approaching, there is one thing that all beachgoers, both male and female have on the brain: tanning. Just one 20-minute session in your favorite UV clubhouse before the age of 35 increases your risk of skin cancer by 75 percent and increases your chance of premature wrinkles, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Since tanning itself can be an addictive habit, students should try to take up another addictive habit — eating sweet potatoes. The orange color of the sweet potato comes from betacarotene, an antioxidant that converts to vitamin A and is known to be responsible for producing new skin cells and shedding old ones. This will keep the surface of your skin resistant to damage and looking healthy. These antioxidants may help ward off various forms of cancer (including melanoma) as well as help to prevent wrinkles. If feeling the need to twice bake, try twice-baking some sweet potatoes, because healthy skin and happy taste buds are a good way to celebrate spring break.

Twice Baked

Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes

Photo: Claire Powell/AmesEats Flavors While tanning is a temptation as Spring Break approaches, you can counter the harmful effects. Enjoy sweet potatoes, such as these twice-baked sweet potatoes, to protect skin against harmful UV rays.

■■ 3 large sweet potatoes ■■ 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature

■■ 3 tablespoons chopped chives ■■ 3 to 4 ounces plain Greek yogurt ■■ Salt and pepper, to taste ■■ Ground ginger ■■ 1/4 cup crushed bran flakes or bread crumbs ■■ 2 tablespoons crushed pecans (optional)

Wrap three large sweet potatoes in foil and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about an hour, or until the potato is cooked all the way through so the inside is soft (varies depending on size of the potato). You may also microwave the potatoes until done if you are short on time, but be sure to stab a fork in the potato a couple times to make sure the potato doesn’t explode. Once cooled enough to handle, cut the potato in half lengthwise and scoop out all but 1/8 inch of the flesh from the inside of the potato. Mix the flesh with 1 tablespoon butter, chives and Greek yogurt. Add salt, pepper and ginger to taste. For a more flavorful potato add cinnamon and cloves. In a separate bowl mix crushed cereal or bread crumbs with the remaining tablespoon of butter, add pecans or other nuts if you wish. Season topping mixture to taste. Spoon the mixture into the potato skins, top with the cereal mixture and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Dining in the mountains during break

Quick bites

By Steph.Ferguson @iowastatedaily.com Heading out west to the mountains this spring break? Colorado has many different restaurant options, whether you’re looking for a quick bite on the slopes or a sit-down meal after a long day of black diamonds. Read this and you’ll be covered with more than just snow. Popular skiing and snowboarding towns include Keystone and Breckenridge in Colorado. Luckily they’re not too far apart from one another, with the town Dillon in between. Keystone offers a few restaurants and unique eating experiences. The Alpenglow Stube offers a Bavarian accented meal to accompany the view at 11,444 feet. If you’re not looking to break the bank on your dinner there’s the 9280’ Tap House located in the River Run Village. 9280’ offers drinks and great food. Looking for a place to relax and read a quick book? Check out Inxpot. They have homemade grilled cheese and hot chocolate to warm you up. Down the road, Breckenridge offers a few chain restaurants such as a Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. If seafood next to a snowy mountain view isn’t your thing, Downstairs at Eric’s offers a unique dining experience. Located in an underground restaurant and decorated with eclectic signs and stickers, this eatery and bar offers the typical food any snow bunny would love. At a reasonable price you can enjoy great sandwiches, burgers or appetizers. The friendly staff will also offer up some tasty drink combinations for you to try. Eric’s also names their wing sauces after difficulties of mountain runs. Think you can handle the double black diamond buffalo wings? You might want to stick with the blue square Thai peanut wings, if spicy isn’t your forte.

Spring Break often means exposing one’s swimsuit body, which for some might bring about feelings of insecurity. These insecurities may lead to crash and fad dieting methods to lose the weight quickly in time for Spring Break. Crash dieting and grueling amounts of exercise can overwhelm the body and become dangerous, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The Academy recommends small goals such as eating three types of vegetables a day and working out 30 minutes a day, rather than setting large goals such as losing 10 pounds. If you take small steps. not only will you shed some pounds, but be able to keep off the weight long after Spring Break. -By Caitlyn Diimig, AmesEats Flavors writer
