Zach DueĂąas, a sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences, prays in the chapel in Schroeder Hall on Wednesday. Though a common everyday practice, Christians are encouraged to embrace prayer more than usual during the Lenten season to bring themselves closer to God.

Prayer is essential to the everyday spiritual life of a Christian. But during Lent, when Christians are supposed to focus more on God, it becomes even more important to them. Prayer is one of the three pillars of Lent, but it is a common practice throughout the Church year. Prayer is a conversation with God, said Susan Mountin, director of the Manressa Project. Gina Galassi, sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences, said to pray is to grow deeper in a relation-

ship with God. Commonly when people pray, they ask God for something, said theology professor Mark Johnson. Asking for help is a healthy way of acknowledging our dependence on God, he said. “We really do depend on God, in some ways for everything,� said Johnson. Many times throughout the Gospel, Jesus deliberately took time to go off and pray to God.


“That’s what Jesus did in his experiences leading up to the Passion,� said Mountin. When he desired to speak to God, Jesus often prayed alone. “It’s almost as if he needs that prayer as a way of nurturing himself spiritually,� said Mountin. When Jesus went into the Garden of Gethsemane


This is the second part in a season-long series on Lenten traditions

to pray just before his arrest, he asked his disciples to pray as well. The Disciples fell asleep instead of praying. Too often, Christians do that instead of focusing on God, Mountin said. Lent is a time to try to pay more attention to prayer, she said. She said we need to wake up. Mountin said when it comes to prayer, sometimes we do the talking, and sometimes we do the listening. Very often, it’s the silence that gets you to think more about what you’re asking God for, and you ASS>`OgS`^OUS%

When you’re in Wisconsin, “Live Like You Mean It.� That’s the message being sent by state tourism officials, who unveiled the new slogan and logo Monday. “Live Like You Mean It� supplants “Life’s So Good.� The re-branding started a year ago, when Gov. Jim Doyle asked the Department of Tourism to research what distinguishes Wisconsin from other states. “Originality� is what they found and is the main idea behind the new brand.

“No matter how people come in contact with Wisconsin, they’ll know precisely what we stand for in this state,� Doyle said in a statement released by the Wisconsin Department of Tourism. “We are a place where the people are fiercely proud, hard-working, loyal, have fun with life and where the culture fuels creativity and embraces original thinking.� Doyle said the new brand will not only at-

tract tourists, but also businesses. “This is another tool we’ll use to keep loyal visitors coming back, communicate why a business should relocate or expand here, and let talented employees know why they should choose Wisconsin,� he said. But it turns out the slogan isn’t all that original. “Live Like You Mean It� is used by some motivational speakers and is the title of several books. Irene Calboli, a Marquette Law

professor specializing in Intellectual Property Law, said though criticism of the slogan will continue, it’s unlikely there will be action taken against Wisconsin. “I doubt that the state would have legal problems,â€? Calboli said. “And I would tend to exclude any likelihood of consumer confusion between the Wisconsin products and services carrying the new logo and slogan and the preexisting ones.â€? The new brand will first be used for marketing Wisconsin tourism, and then applied to other state agencies and private companies. “Energyâ€? is the reason this specific ASSAZ]UO\^OUS$

After difficulties arose in attracting and retaining candidates, the nearly year-long search for a new dean of the College of Arts & Sciences has been closed for the semester. A new search will begin in late August or early September, with some preliminary work to be done in the spring and summer, said Provost John Pauly. The most realistic timetable for hiring a new dean is July 2010, Pauly said. He hopes the university will have made an offer to someone about a year from now. Pauly said he felt satisfied with the caliber of the candidates brought in by the committee. However, he did not feel certain they were right for Marquette at this time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We must be patient,â&#x20AC;? Pauly said. Pauly hopes the new search will attract a broader group of candidates with a wide range of administrative experience. In the meantime, Jeanne Hossenlopp, previously the chemistry department chair, has agreed to remain the interim dean of the college until the end of the 2009â&#x20AC;&#x2122;10 academic year, said Albert Rivero, a professor of English and chair of the search committee. The college has been in transition since Michael McKinney stepped down in December 2007 after eight years as dean. John Pustejovsky, an associate professor of German, served as interim dean in spring 2008, and Hossenlopp took over this school year. Pauly and the search committee thought the university would have â&#x20AC;&#x153;diminished returnsâ&#x20AC;? this late in the academic year, Pauly said. They deemed it better to temporarily close the search and ASS2SO\a^OUS

Mar. 17 At 3:42 p.m., Department of Public Safety officers found an intoxicated 19-year-old male student sleeping in a bus shelter in the 1400 block of West Wisconsin Avenue. After being woken up, the student became verbally aggressive with the officers. The Milwaukee Police Department was contacted and issued the student a municipal citation for underage drinking. At 6:47 p.m., a 37-year-old woman not affiliated with the university was driving while intoxicated in Parking Lot W. DPS officers noticed the driver ran through a red traffic light at the intersection of 17th Street and Clybourn Avenue. The officers stopped the driver and contacted MPD. The woman became verbally aggressive as officers questioned her. MPD took the driver into custody.

At 9:01 p.m., a 21-year-old male student reported that unknown subject(s) forcibly entered his secured residence by breaking through a kitchen window. A bunt cake that was sitting on the counter next to the broken window was reported stolen. The estimated loss is $5. At 9:52 p.m., an 18-year-old male student was found to be in possession of two false identification cards in Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell Hall. The Illinois ID cards were found to belong to the studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother. Both cards were confiscated and MPD was not contacted. Mar. 18 At 4:04 a.m., a 20-year-old man not affiliated with the university became disorderly with DPS officers as the subject attempted to gain entry to Campus Town East. MPD was contacted and took the subject into custody.

Chuck D, former member of the rap group Public Enemy, spoke to students in Marquette Hall Tuesday evening. He encouraged students to embrace their intelligence and to â&#x20AC;&#x153;be a nerd.â&#x20AC;?

Known for his time spent in the rap group Public Enemy, Carlton Douglas Ridenhour, otherwise known as Chuck D, brought his nationwide lecture touring college campuses to Marquette Tuesday night. He called his lecture, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Race, Rap and Reality,â&#x20AC;? a â&#x20AC;&#x153;vibe session,â&#x20AC;? engaging with students, faculty and fans at Marquette Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chuck D is a historic figure in the history of rock and roll. As the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;vibe sessionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; illustrated, he has the mind and methodology of a historian,â&#x20AC;? said Phillip Naylor, an associate professor of history and instructor of HIST 125: History of Rock and Roll.

recommence at a time when more candidates are looking at the position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We felt it was the best solution under the circumstances,â&#x20AC;? Pauly said. The current economic climate made the search more difficult, Pauly said. The executive recruiting firm aiding the university, Korn/Ferry International, had said it was hard to get candidates to apply, to visit campus and to accept offers. The original list of candidates for the position included Tim

Rock the Vote, a non-profit organization that seeks to engage young people in politics, Chuck D encouraged young people to vote in the past presidential election. Our common goal, he said, is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;figure out how we can fix this world.â&#x20AC;? Chuck D emphasized the importance of education and knowledge among young people, saying they should be â&#x20AC;&#x153;fearlessâ&#x20AC;? with their intelligence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be a nerd at something, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s counting Raisinets,â&#x20AC;? he said. He brought to attention the need of people to be aware of topics including geography and history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I especially liked his emphasis on the importance of intellectual pursuits and the need for all Americans to develop a historical and geographic consciousness,â&#x20AC;? Naylor said. Chuck D said youth â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially those that roam middle school halls â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have become over-

whelmed with sources of music that offer no educational benefits, like Soulja Boy. He criticized MTV, calling it â&#x20AC;&#x153;Empty-Vâ&#x20AC;? because â&#x20AC;&#x153;it gets you nothing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very much aware of how hip-hop is affecting youth culture since I am a middle school teacher. Youth today doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t value education, or even being smart,â&#x20AC;? said Nicole Vurusic, a Milwaukee public school teacher. Chuck D acknowledged that the record industry is dying, but he said the music business, overall, is still healthy. Even though CD sales have plummeted, artists can still bring in fans and consumers by developing live shows that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a waste of fansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; money, he said. He believes people will always want music. Matt Campbell, a senior in the College of Engineering, thought the presentation was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a really fresh and sincere take, not just on music, but on how things are today.â&#x20AC;?

Machan, a professor of English at Marquette, Brian Blake, an associate professor and chair of the Department of Computer Science and director of graduate studies at Georgetown University, and Marietta Morrissey, a professor of sociology at the University of Toledo. Blake and Morrissey withdrew their names from consideration in late January, and the university subsequently added another candidate: Diane Michelfelder, provost and dean of the faculty at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minn. In early February, Robert Lueger, dean of Arts & Sciences at Creighton University, was added to the candidate pool. Lueger pre-

viously worked at Marquette for 25 years as the department chair of psychology and later as the associate dean of the College of Arts & Sciences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were working with a more constrained pool of candidates and the uncertainty of people to enter the search,â&#x20AC;? Pauly said. Potential candidates had to factor in things like selling their current home or finding work for a spouse, Pauly said. He said the search for dean of the College of Arts & Sciences is also more difficult than other colleges because the selected dean must represent a wide range of disciplines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a smaller amount of people who want to take on those

He said he also plans to meet with Rivero and the search committee to discuss improvements for the new search. Although it is possible that the current members of the 12-person body could remain on the committee, Pauly said it is likely there will be new members. He said universities usually form a new committee with a new chair in these situations. At Marquette, the provost is in charge of forming a new search committee. Rivero said he likely will not

consider being a part of the new search committee. He said it is a huge time commitment, and he wishes to focus on his teaching and research. Pauly said the committee worked hard and he appreciates Riveroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership.

Marquette’s first St. Patrick’s Day with classes in session in four years was met with both celebrations and frank discussions about the role of alcohol on campus. Department of Public Safety Lt. Paul Mascari said the student activity on Tuesday was rather calm considering the culture of the holiday. “There was a little more activity than there would be on your average weekday, but it wasn’t too bad,” Mascari said. “Overall it was a relatively quiet day.” Mascari said the good student behavior was reflected in the DPS Reports from Tuesday. “People were out at the bars all day, but it seems everyone was enjoying the day responsibly,” he said. Arthur Orville, a junior in the College of Business Administration, was one student who spent the holiday enjoying the campus bars. “St. Patrick’s Day is actually my birthday too, so I had a little extra celebrating to do for my 21st,” he said. Although Orville said he wasn’t waiting in line for the bars to open at 6 a.m., the festivities did keep him away from his classes

on Tuesday. “I didn’t have anything too important going on in class, so I decided to take the day off and just enjoy it,” he said. For Jake Hartlmeier, a sophomore in the College of Business Administration, Tuesday was just a normal school day. “I went to all my classes, and I was even in bed by 10 o’clock on St. Patrick’s Day,” Hartlmeier said. “It’s a little ironic, but I was a better student on Tuesday than I have been all year.” As some students used St. Patrick’s Day as an excuse to go out on a weekday, the university used the holiday as a platform for a discussion about alcohol use on campus. As part of the 2009 Alcohol Summit, which ran through much of Tuesday afternoon in the Alumni Memorial Union, a panel of students and university staff members discussed the role of alcohol on Marquette’s campus. The panelists agreed that alcohol is a significant part of the Marquette culture but were uncertain how to change it. All believed the use and abuse of alcohol is both common and widespread on campus. “(Alcohol) is such a part of the community in so many different ways,” said Gabe Brackman, a senior in the College of Engineering. Sue Cooper, a crime prevention officer with DPS, said students’ drinking habits can make it difficult for DPS to keep them safe

on campus. When students were warned to exercise more caution in their drinking in the wake of several robberies around campus last spring, DPS “did not see any change in the behavior of our students,” Cooper said. “That was a very frustrating time in our office,” she said. Brenda Lenz, the assistant director of the counseling center, said one factor contributing to the dominant presence of alcohol on campus is that it is difficult for moderate or non-drinkers to have their voices heard. Panelists said many students come to college expecting everyone on campus to drink, and this makes it difficult to convince them otherwise. “It’s a struggle to say to (fresh-

men) that there’s a voice out there that doesn’t want to drink,” said Brackman, who is a resident assistant in Abbottsford Hall. “You’re looked at funny sometimes.” The portrayal of college alcohol use in the media and on social networking sites is a significant reason why students come to college with the assumption that all students drink, said Kalyn Gigot, a senior in the College of Arts & Sciences. “Because Facebook and movies and television and ads are so prevalent and so pervasive, it’s really difficult to get that message across (that you don’t have to drink),” Gigot said. “It’s definitely an uphill battle.” Abby Koker, a junior in the College of Health Sciences, agreed, saying the information students

get from media influences “perpetuates the culture (of alcohol) at college.” But changing these perceptions and drinking habits is difficult, because while the campus provides a lot of information about drinking, students tend to ignore it, Gigot said. “In many regards, it goes in one ear and out the other,” she said. One challenge is that many campus events billed as drinking alternatives aren’t appealing enough, said Alex Smith, a junior in the College of Business Administration. “We need to find programs that aren’t necessarily an alternative to drinking but that people actually want to go to,” Smith said.

A diploma doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like much. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a piece of paper with a name and a signature. But for graduating seniors, a diploma symbolizes hours of studying and more than $100,000 in tuition. It would be a shame if this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seniors were to walk away from their graduation ceremonies with an empty diploma folder. But if Provost John Pauly signs a proposal passed by the Academic Senate this week, seniors may very well receive their diplomas in the mail. We urge Pauly to veto the proposal. The proposal extends the grading period for professors from the Monday after final exams to the Tuesday after final exams. The Academic Senate claims the change would be beneficial, as â&#x20AC;&#x153;students would receive the individual attention to their finals that they deserve,â&#x20AC;? said Edward Fallone, an associate professor in the Law School and Senate member. Delaying the release of final grades by one day doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make much of a difference in the lives of underclassmen. But for graduates, that day makes all the difference, because the extension would likely change the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy of handing out diplomas on graduation day. Instead, students would receive just their diploma folder on May 17. The actual degrees would arrive in the mail later. According to Fallone, the majority of universities mail out diplomas after graduation. The proposal, he said, is about altering tradition to the benefit of students and professors. But this tradition is important, especially to seniors. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graduation day! Students should receive a real diploma when they walk across the stage. In the Senate, only two colleges â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Arts & Sciences and Nursing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; voted for the proposal. The College of Engineering voted against, and the remaining colleges abstained. The colleges abstained because while they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t benefit from an extended grading period, they believe students and professors in other disciplines might. If the majority of the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s colleges donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an opinion on the issue, the provost should make a decision for whom the issue matters most â&#x20AC;&#x201D; students. We hope Pauly sends this idea back to the drawing board where it can be fleshed out more fully. A compromise between extending the grading period and getting diplomas out on time can surely be made. Perhaps professors could expedite the final grades of graduating seniors, so those students could receive their diplomas on graduation day. The extra day could be used to grade underclassmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finals. We understand the Academic Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to ease semester-end pressure on professors. But the Senate seems to have forgotten the importance of a diploma on graduation day. We ask Pauly to recall his own graduation and the sense of pride he felt as he held tangible evidence of his achievement in his hands. Provost Pauly, do not deprive your students of that same feeling of accomplishment.

My closest and dearest friends have lovingly described my family as absolutely crazy. To be sure, things there are plenty hectic. My week home was a series of chauffeuring people to work, school and volleyball practice, running errands, caring for an ever-growing number of pets, visiting old ladies who like to catch up when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in town, being nagged about everything from the length of my hair to the way I peel potatoes and taking great pains to spend equal time with friends from home according to their availability. And yet, not even a week back at school, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m already pining for Easter Break. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ironic, because I typically view home as a stressor. My friends in the past had trouble understanding that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the same freedom in my social schedule as they had, largely because I have a 10-year-old sister at home whom I would need to care for if other people were gone.

Nicole Muhlenbeck, a speech pathology graduate student, interprets for Ron Zacker, of Milwaukee, as they confer with a family in the village Corralito in Honduras.

Instead of Florida or Mexico, College of Engineering senior Brittany Obert picked a unique destination for her spring break: Honduras. But this was no ordinary trip. Obert, along with about 30 other students and 10 health care professionals, went to Honduras for a week to represent the Global Medical Brigades, a service organization originally started at Marquette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We go down to rural communities that are isolated,â&#x20AC;? Obert said. She said she has been going on GMB trips since her sophomore year. The Marquette GMB has gone on two trips this semester, one over spring break and one in January.

Obert said the group set up free clinics in four local communities in the area. The clinics provide village residents with medical care from the six doctors and four dentists that came with the students. Obert said the brigade helped 1,200 people in one day at a community called San Juan. She said this was a nearly overwhelming volume of patients. She said students all play distinct roles in the clinicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operation. Students with medical majors help run the pharmacy or help assist the doctors in the clinic. Students with foreign language backgrounds work as interpreters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very eye-opening experience,â&#x20AC;? said College of Health Sciences senior Kim Hanson, who has been with the GMB since her freshman year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It completely changed my perspective.â&#x20AC;?

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. will now have executive power over appointing new managers at the House of Corrections and County Correctional Facility South in Franklin. As a result, County Board supervisors would no longer have any say over the decisions. The full board votes on the issue today. The vote will likely be a formality, as it strongly passed in both the Personnel Committee and Judiciary Committee.

The Judiciary Committee voted 6-0, and the Personnel Committee 6-1, to stop supervisors from confirming the facility superintendent. The lone district supervisor to oppose was John Weishan, Jr. of the 16th District. Harold Mester, public information officer for the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors, said the changes are merely procedural to take care of the transition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was part of the 2009 budget that was approved in November,â&#x20AC;? Mester said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The County Board had already made a policy decision late last year to give it to the House of Corrections.â&#x20AC;? Supervisors will still have a role within the facility, although the confidence is high in the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day-to-day operations, Mester said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sheriff is a constitutional

officer, so he has great control over how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run,â&#x20AC;? Mester said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At some point in the future, if the board feels it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t managed and administered properly, and if a majority agree, they could go back on it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But at this point in time, the board felt that they would rather transfer the control to the Sheriff for day-today operations of the House of Corrections.â&#x20AC;? Removing the authority follows-up last fallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to place the facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administrative control completely under the sheriff. Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker was a firm proponent of handing the job directly to Clarke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It made sense for the sheriff to take on this role,â&#x20AC;? said Fran ASS1]``SQbW]\a^OUS$

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee will recieve $240 million from the state if Gov. Jim Doyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget proposal passes.

The University of WisconsinMilwaukee is set to receive a big boost if Gov. Jim Doyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $240 million proposal passes. The money would be paid over six years and would go to various research, expansion and construction projects at the university. Carla Vigue, a Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office spokeswoman, said the proposal was part of the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Milwaukee Initiative. The proposal was announced Monday as part of Gov. Doyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget plan.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The $240 million will be given to UWM, which has already set aside certain priorities and projects,â&#x20AC;? Vigue said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The initiative will give Milwaukee, and Wisconsin as a whole, a research and economic boost.â&#x20AC;? The Great Lakes WATER Institute is among the top priorities for the proposed funds, according to Vigue. The institute would be reconstructed and its primary research vessel, the NEEKSAY, would be replaced. New research facilities for a new graduate-level School for Freshwater Sciences would also be built. Val Klump, director and senior scientist at the Great Lakes Water Institute, said the project would go a long way in boosting the institute.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new institute will offer graduate programs, but there will be lots of undergraduate courses,â&#x20AC;? Klump said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A chemistry major could minor in freshwater sciences, or even an economics major.â&#x20AC;? Students would have access to state-of-the-art research equipment in new classroom and research facilities on and off campus. Freshwater sciences isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only department anticipating improvements stemming from the proposal. Other projects include a new engineering campus in Wauwatosa and new buildings for the School of Public Health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty broad really,â&#x20AC;? Klump said.

stereotype shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be reinforced. Peters has advised the group since its creation in 2003. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go down there looking to feel sorry,â&#x20AC;? Peters said. He said the villages they visit often have a strong sense of community. Children play together and with the student visitors without inhibition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We bring much more back with us than we bring to the people of Honduras,â&#x20AC;? Peters said. He said since the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creation, the GMB has expanded, forming brigades for business and water purification, amongst others. Peters said a public health brigade is currently in the process of development and is designed to teach villagers how to be more self-reliant. On the March trip, students spent one day teaching villagers these skills, and some students have suggested creating a public health brigade at Marquette,

McLaughlin, a spokeswoman for the county executiveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had overseen the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies, but not the House of Corrections. It was consolidated under the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, under his jurisdiction.â&#x20AC;? Kim Brooks, public information officer for the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, said performance will determine how the facility runs if the full County Board decides to take the facility away from Clarke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the County Board voted to place the House of Corrections back under the County Executive or a new management paradigm, the impact to the House would be based on the new management

separate from the medical brigade. Peters said 120 students applied to go on one of the two trips this year. However, only about 30 new students are selected each year, creating competition for those coveted spots. Obert said this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selection process involved trimming the applicant list to 60 students, who then interviewed for the last 30 slots. She said the process ensures that new students selected are the most enthusiastic about the trip. Mara Brandli, a sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences, said the most memorable part of the trip is how refreshing the experience was. Mike Puglisi, senior in the College of Health Sciences shared Brandliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sentiment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember the air seeming so fresh and life-giving. Everything seemed ideal when you looked around,â&#x20AC;? Brandli said. She said though the effects of the medical brigade are helpful, teaching people to be self-sufficient will make a dramatic, longterm difference. Puglisi emphasized the human

aspect of the trip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of my best memories come from simple conversations with people,â&#x20AC;? Puglisi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people there are just a great group of human beings.â&#x20AC;? Sarah Bly, junior in the College of Health Sciences, went on the trip for the first time in January. She said one particular conversation with a woman patient will always stand out in her mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She told me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You listen, you help us. That makes you a doctor,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Bly said. She said the woman told her this in response to her explanation that she was a student, not a doctor. She said the womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response convinced her of the importance of what she was doing. Tony Guzzardo, a fifth-year student in the College of Nursing, said the willingness to serve is a key aspect of the trip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It instills in you values of service and gives you both the want and the desire to do more,â&#x20AC;? Guzzardo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get to better the bigger picture.â&#x20AC;?

teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to perform and get results for the taxpayers of Milwaukee County,â&#x20AC;? Brooks said. Clarke has filled two of three managerial spots. Both Inspector Richard Schmidt and Capt. Kevin Nyklewicz currently work in the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and have each had prior managerial experience within the prison system. Schmidt, also a top overseer at the county jail, adds the Franklin facility to his duties. Nyklewicz runs daily management at the facility. Brooks said precautions were taken to ensure that improved results were not optional, but mandatory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheriff Clarke anticipated the issue before placing Inspector Schmidt over the transition project, and ultimately over both facilities,â&#x20AC;? Brooks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inspector Schmidt has a lead-

ership team at both facilities to assure that security is enhanced, not diminished.â&#x20AC;? Clarke appointed Deputy Inspector Esther Welch, a veteran of the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office command staff, as on-site leader of the jail. Prior to the Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision, the Franklin facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s security guards had been stressed and pushed to work beyond their norms. Appointing new managers to run the facility would allow greater flexibility of guards to work normal hours. Reports from the facility indicated guards had many forced overtime costs and overtime shifts because of minimal staffing, but had radically declined since Clarke took over in January 2009, Brooks said.

logo was chosen, said tourism secretary Kelli Trumble. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The silhouetted figure cartwheeling across the top of Wisconsin really speaks to the invitation to live and work and play here,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Live Like You Mean Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; speaks to the fact that if you can imagine it, you can do it in Wisconsin. It was chosen for its energy.â&#x20AC;? The logo was designed by Milwaukee marketing company Red Brown Kle. The color scheme came from consumer research done in Wisconsin and neighboring states, Trumble said. The green was chosen to represent

Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abundant natural resources, while the red was chosen to represent passion and energy. A Green Bay tourism official said the re-branding will help keep Wisconsin attractive as a tourist destination, bringing in the accompanying spending. Tourism is one of the Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top three industries, according to the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Web site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The state typically sees about $13 billion of spending that comes from visitors,â&#x20AC;? said Brad Toll, president of the Greater Green Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As you enter into some challenging economic times, the tax revenue thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driven by visitor spending, we certainly donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see that go down.â&#x20AC;?

UW-Milwaukee students will benefit from new classrooms on campus and satellite campuses and research facilities off-campus. Adam Robillard, a sophomore engineering major at UWM, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excited for the prospects of the new engineering campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I might be a graduate student by the time thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done,â&#x20AC;? Robillard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just glad to see weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re starting to be taken seriously.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to be open to Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s answer, not just your answer,â&#x20AC;? said Mountin. As believers have tried to hear God better while praying, many different methods of prayer have developed. All the different methods get to the same place, Mountin said. Five different kinds of prayer are identified in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Little Black Bookâ&#x20AC;? distributed by Campus Ministry: vocal prayer, scriptural

prayer, meditation, contemplation and liturgical prayer. The Lenten devotional book says vocal prayer involves using a set prayer, such as the Our Father, while scriptural prayer refers to slowly reading a passage of Scripture and opening oneself to Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words. Meditation is described in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Little Black Bookâ&#x20AC;? as someone thinking about the different aspects of faith with God and contempla-

The $240 million would be the largest investment the state has made in the university since it began more than 50 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really cool, it kind of makes you feel more legitimate,â&#x20AC;? said Jordan Hinke, a UWM sophomore. Klump said the replacement costs for the research vessel would cost $16 to $20 million, but was unsure of the costs of other facilities relating to the institute. The timeframe for the reconstruction is around the same six years as the funding, Klump added.

JH?8KD; tion involves eliminating outside thoughts and simply being in the presence of God. Participating with other believers in the rituals of the Church is liturgical prayer, according to the book. Other forms of prayer also exist. St. Ignatius believed that being in a place where prayer comes easily can be best, said Mountin. Galassi said sometimes the best place for her to pray is outside of


Joan of Arc on a nice day, surrounded by the flowers. She said she is able to see God in those that pass by and feel him in the wind. As a college student, Galassi admits that finding time to pray can be difficult. Scheduling time for prayer works best for her, she said. Even when you are busy, Galassi said, you can still talk to God by making your life a prayer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five seconds, Jesus heard it anyways.â&#x20AC;?

ARTISTS SHOW OFF Wisconsin flavor ?X^^\ikpDlj\ldf]8ik]\Xkli\jcfZXcnfib`e `kjdlj\ld$n`[\\o_`Y`k#Ê:lii\ekK\e[\eZ`\jË By Molly Gamble

The current exhibit of local artists at the Haggerty Museum of Art negates any lingering ideas of Wisconsin artists as dairyland landscape painters. The collection, titled “Current Tendencies,” showcases the work of 10 Wisconsin artists and a breadth of interests including paper cutting, photography, beading and room installations. The exhibit starts right from the door. Artists Brent Budsberg and Shana McCaw constructed a site-specific piece in the Haggerty’s entryway featuring a display of a delivery truck accident over the doorway. Budsberg spent two weeks painting a colorful scene on the museum’s wall of bystanders watching the accident. Adding to the pieces’ diversity, each artist’s work is displayed in a different room. ***

The Haggerty Museum of Art’s new exhibit entitled “Current Tendencies” features 10 Wisconsin artists with a variety of styles including paper cutting, photography, beading and room installations.

Peter Bardy, a Milwaukee native who never received formal art training, redesigned his entire home in a span of 10 years by removing all decorative objects and replacing them with natural found objects, such as stones from Lake Michigan or scrap metal from junkyards. He even replaced his living room carpet with a metal conveyor belt. After his death last June, Bardy’s home was sold, and the environment was dismantled. Alex Bardy, Peter’s brother, contacted the Haggerty to see if there was any interest in documenting or preserving any of his brother’s minimalist art environment. Lynne Shumow, Haggerty’s curator of education, visited Bardy’s home and said it was one of the most unusual artistic environments she’d seen. Usually artists are excessive in collecting small items like bottle caps and gluing them to a wall, or creating environments cluttered with various items, colors and textures. Bardy, however, was almost obsessive in his minimalistc pursuit. Also, his art was not confined to one space but his entire home. “There was no separation between artist and life,” Shumow said. Bardy’s room in the Haggerty reflects his minimalist approach to art — at first glance it looks like mangled metal strategically placed in the room. His pieces were not named, leaving the walls bare where name cards and information are usually displayed. Playing in the room is a video that Shumow created with the help of the Marquette Instructional Media Center that documents Bardy’s home and captures his siblings speaking about their brother. *** Bugs are the art in Jennifer Angus’ room installation where hundreds of real

insects are pinned on the wall against delicately patterned wallpaper the artist designed herself. Angus, who teaches textile design at University of WisconsinMadison, combined her love of patterns with her interest in exotic bugs. While in Thailand, she studied tribal fashions and how wings of beetles were often used as garment fringes. “I had never thought of insects being beautiful,” she said. “I was really pretty enchanted.” Angus buys the insects — she calls them her investments — from dealers and saves them to reuse and reuse after exhibitions. Although most are from the rainforest, none are endangered. Large cicadas, close to the size of a clenched fist, are arranged to look like they are crawling out of the corner and can make your skin crawl. Angus, however, encourages viewers to step closer and really look at the insects rather than immediately deeming them as something gross. “I don’t use butterflies in my work. No butterflies, and no moths,” she said. “Everyone knows they’re beautiful.” Also unusual is the work of Anne Kingsbury, who has combined beading and journaling. She has made art out of to-do lists presented in the form of ornate, multicolored beadings on leather as well as inked drawings and writings on paper. She timed herself with a kitchen clock and the events are not supposed to be exciting but rather menial tasks. The work looks incredibly time consuming, and one of the largest pieces, “Beaded Deer Hide,” is not yet complete as Kingsbury still has a portion of the leather left to bead. *** Wally Mason, Haggerty’s director, said that “Current Tendencies” poses artistic questions regarding whether or not art can be something that is temporary and how many forms autobiographical art can take. “I am not certain that the artists in ‘Current Tendencies’ bring something that is unique to Wisconsin currently,” said Mason. “The fact that they all reside here can’t help but have some influence in their thinking; it’s just not seascapes like you might find in Maine or flamingos in Florida. The fact that most of the artists are also educators means that their impact is twofold, their work and their teaching.” In addition to exhibiting “Current Tendencies,” which runs until June 14, the Haggerty is also offering numerous opportunities to meet with the artists. An open forum with art facilitators will be held March 26 at 7 p.m. with the goal of creating dialogue between curators, art writers, art board members and artists. People interested in art can receive advice about galleries, grants and discuss the current state of visual arts in Wisconsin.

“Bromance” — a close, but non-sexual relationship between two men or “bros” — seems to be this year’s buzzword. Brody Jenner even had his own MTV reality television show entitled “Bromance” where he chose someone to be a part of his entourage, or his new “bro.” And that is the kind of relationship you see in the upcoming movie, “I Love You, Man” starring Paul Rudd (“Role Models”) and Jason Segel (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”). Rudd’s character, Peter, goes on a series of “man dates” to find a best friend to be his best man at his wedding. However, his friendship with Segel’s character, Sydney, begins to cause problems in his relationship his fiancée. “It just seems to be the word of the moment, ‘bromantic,’ ” Rudd said. Rudd and Segel have already worked together in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Knocked Up,” which set up a foundation between the actors. “Thankfully we knew each other, and so there was, you know, already a little bit of built in familiarity,” Segel said. That familiarity came into play in the movie when Peter and Sydney would go on a variety of “man dates” to get to know each other. “They took us to the best fish taco restaurant and the director told us ‘Look, the goal is just to look like you guys are slowly starting to like each other, don’t really worry about a script,’ ” Segel said. “And then they just gave us four hours of fish tacos and beer and we just had to talk and be funny and enjoy each other’s company. It was very, very easy and very, very fun.” However, this film is not all about the men. Rashida Jones (“The Office”) plays Rudd’s fiancée in the film. “Rashida is very much kind of

one of the guys,” Rudd said. “She is hilarious and cool and easy to hang out with.” Both Rudd and Segel have screenwriting credits to their name, Rudd for “Role Models” and Segel for “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and they agreed that it has helped them as actors. “I think it enhanced my performance because I think I understand the character better,” Rudd said. “It makes me understand a character motivations and all that other actor bull stuff more.”

Paul Rudd and Jason Segel go on a series of “man dates” as Rudd attempts to find a best friend to be his best man in the new “bromantic” comedy, “I Love You, Man.”

Segel said being a screenwriter not only helped his performance, but it gave him a reinvigorated admiration for writers. “I had a new respect for the writers and how difficult their job is and not to be so frivolous with their words,” he said. “I Love You, Man” opens nationwide Friday.

Lately, The Black Lips have been known more for their stage antics than their music. They’ve pretty much done it all in front of an audience — spitting, vomiting, urinating, inter-band kissing. It’s all fair game. The Atlanta quartet even had to cancel their tour in India a few months back when they were hounded by police after some indecent exposure at a show. But Sunday night at Turner Hall Ballroom, 1032 N. 4th St., The Black Lips made sure that they were all about their harmonizing psychedelic garage punk. “I’m not peeing on anybody,” bassist Jared Swilley said. “You can pee on your friends, though.” After Swilley said this about halfway through the set in response to a heckler, it felt like their was a big burden lifted off the Black Lips’ backs. They

weren’t the class clowns anymore. They were the punk rock kids. And boy did they rock. (They said a patch of concrete fell from the roof of Turner Hall during their sound check). Their rambunctious set included selections from its latest album 200 Million Thousand and previous albums Good Bad Not Evil and Let It Bloom. Swilley had a throaty, crackling voice joking that he just started going through puberty and, for some odd reason, he was always fighting with his mom. While it hindered some of their set, the band’s raw, garage rock sound let his rough voice go unnoticed during songs. The only peculiar part about the show was when guitarist Cole Alexander came out looking like Clint Eastwood on Thanksgiving. He was dressed in a “Man with No Name” poncho, a rough beard and a pilgrim hat. They had — what seemed to

be — a floral light design for a few songs, but the stage’s black backdrop diminished all the colorful effect. Since the effect was coming form the switchboard behind the audience, the design was only noticeable on the backs of the audience. A few even got creative with the lighting and made shadow puppets, attempting to eat band members with their hand’s shadows. The audience seemed more willing to start a riot than the band. Cups were endlessly thrown at the band, so many that, by the end of the night, it seemed they were drenched more in water than in their own sweat. It was all in good fun, though. It was obvious that The Black Lips have had rougher nights. Milwaukee’s own Goodnight Loving opened the night — outshining the second band, Gentleman Jesse and His Men, who came off boring — with its fastpaced, guitar driven, surf punk.

The Black Lips focused on their music Sunday night, not succumbing to the crowd’s pressure to do something bizarre. For a band infamous for vomiting, urinating and kissing, it was a calm night.

Most theater productions start with a carefully written script. Then the script is turned over to a director, who finds an actor to portray each of the characters. According to that formula, a hit play with 18 characters would need 18 actors. Chazz Palminteri’s “A Bronx Tale,” an 18-character play, has only one actor: Palminteri. The one-man show is coming to the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, 929 N. Water St., Tuesday, and the Academy Award-nominated actor will be taking the stage. Palminteri, who has an extensive

film resume in addition to his work on the stage, wrote the play almost 20 years ago during a difficult time in his life. It was an almost immediate success. “A Bronx Tale” depicts a young boy’s coming-of-age in 1960s New York City. Palminteri’s own childhood, much of which was spent in the streets of New York’s Bronx neighborhood, provided the inspiration for the show. The characters that Palminteri portrays over the course of the production are all reminiscent of individuals that Palminteri actually knew in his youth. “Mr. Palminteri wrote and first performed in this show in 1989 in Los Angeles and at Off-Broadway’s Playhouse 91,” said Connie Place, public relations manager for the Marcus Center. Palminteri went on to adapt his script into a screenplay, and worked on the film alongside actor Robert DeNiro, who made his directorial debut

with the 1993 film version of “A Bronx Tale.” The play had a successful run on the Broadway stage in 2007 and 2008, and soon after closing on Broadway the tour was announced. Palminteri will reprise his 18 roles for the tour, which has stops scheduled in major cities across the country. “The movie version was very popular so people may be inclined to see the actual person the story was based on,” Place said. The show, which runs approximately 90 minutes (without an intermission), is a unique theatrical experience that is different from almost all of today’s popular theatrical events. “Ticket sales have been steady,” said Place. Student rush tickets are generally available at the Marcus Center box office. “A Bronx Tale” runs through March 29.

Dominic James and the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team sign autographs as the players boarded the bus outside the Al McGuire Center Wednesday. After falling to Stanford in the round of 32 in the 2008 NCAA Tournament, the Golden Eagles will have to beat Utah State to ensure another chance at the Sweet 16.

Few would ever expect Marquette menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball coach Buzz Williams to have the longest hair on the team. His very name suggests the impossibility of the proposition. But such was the case as the first year coach prepared to board a bus for the airport Wednesday, with exactly six days worth of thin growth covering his head (he only buzzes on game days).

The rest of the Golden Eagles, however, fresh off of one last practice in the Al McGuire Center â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and sporting freshly shaven heads â&#x20AC;&#x201D; prepared for the departure, domes glistening with sweat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always try to do something different for the NCAA Tournament,â&#x20AC;? senior guard Wesley Matthews said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And a couple of guys were like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why not go bald?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Why not? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll grow back.â&#x20AC;? The styles, many of which were the work of teammate Jerel McNeal, worked better for some than others. Dominic James, who now considers himself an assistant coach, did not participate. A few ASSAcQQSaa^OUS!

When Utah State captured the Western Athletic Conference championship with a 72-62 win over Nevada Saturday, the Aggies took time to celebrate. They were headed to the NCAA Tournament â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by virtue of the automatic berth granted to the WAC winner â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for the sixth time in 10 seasons. It was time to party. But the party stopped when

the sun rose the next morning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We celebrated, we enjoyed winning the tournament that whole night,â&#x20AC;? sophomore forward Tai Wesley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next day, we turned our focus toward the NCAA Tournament.â&#x20AC;? The next day, the Aggies learned they would be traveling to Boise, Idaho to face No. 24 Marquette in the first round of the NCAA Tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Regional Friday.

Sing it with me now, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most wonderful time of the yearâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;?. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the introduction to what most of you know as a popular Christmas carol. Well, in the minds of many, Christmas has arrived. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all filled out your brackets in anticipation for what I consider the most wonderful time of the year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right, March Madness begins today. While some people migrated to warmer climates and relaxed on the beach during spring break, I migrated to my couch where I relaxed and studied the world of college basketball. So now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my turn to tell you why youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in trouble if you picked all the top seeds and for those of you who went upset crazy, you may not be so crazy after all. Here are my upset specials: South region: No. 5 Illinois (249) vs. No. 12 Western Kentucky (24-8) The Illini come in to the tournament after an embarrassing loss to Purdue in the Big Ten Conference Tournament last week. Also, apparently no chief means no scoring for Illinois as it was held to 33 points against Penn State a few weeks back and put up just 64.6 points per game this season. To top it off, the Illini will likely be without senior guard Chester Frazier who is recovering from a broken hand suffered two weeks ago. Western Kentucky, on the other hand, received an automatic bid after finishing atop the hill of the Sun Belt Conference. The Hilltoppers reached the Sweet 16 in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament and provided the shot of the tournament with Ty Murrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first round buzzer-beater against Drake. Western Kentucky features four players who average double-digits in scoring and have lost just two games in the past two months Food for thought â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Nov. 30, 2008: Western Kentucky 68, No. 1 Louisville 54. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m taking the Chief-toppers. Midwest region: Possible second round match-up between No. 1 Louisville (28-5) and No. 8 Ohio State (22-10) If you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the Big East Champions and No. 1-overall seed Cardinals to go deep into the tourney, you may not be in too much trouble. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that?â&#x20AC;? you ask. Louisville got robbed. The Cardinals were selected as the top team in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament and sent to Dayton, which is 152 miles away from home. But if Ohio State defeats No. 9 Siena in the first round, it will be playing just 71 miles away from its campus in Columbus. Who wears ASS/\aeS`a^OUS"

the tests are random and they have no control over when they occur. To be unfair, who cares? Perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to change some protocol about when these tests take place. (Insert slow-clap here) Bravo, Time Warner. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always devising new ways to infuriate customers. It was brilliant, really, when you think about the magnitude of disaster Evidenced by a four-game losing streak, Marquette looked lost when senior guard Dominic James went down with an injury. The team got away from what it did best while McNeal and Matthews took Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; missing production solely upon themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think initially they were trying to completely make up for the loss of Dominic,â&#x20AC;?

that just came crashing down upon the Marquette faithful all at once. It was like watching an artist ... well, it was more like watching nothing. You win this round. Lastly, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to take a moment to apologize to the Time Warner customer service agent I spoke with on the phone shortly after the conclusion of the game. Sorry. I was mad. what Dominic was, we lost what Wes and (Jerel) were. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose Wes, (Jerel) and Dominic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to all take one step toward what Dominic gave us. I think that every game they better understood that.â&#x20AC;? It may sound quite simple, but consider that James has been running the Marquette offense for every game since his freshman year and it is actually quite astounding. In a rout of St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the first round of the Big East Championship, the Golden Eagles were able to regain much of their confidence and swagger. Maurice Acker began to show he is capable of facilitating the Marquette offense, and Matthews and McNeal went back to being Matthews and McNeal. While Marquette strayed away from this against Villanova at times, the team proved it can still play with a top-tier opponent. Down by as much as 17 in the first half, the Golden Eagles used aggressiveness in the second half, getting to the basket (14-of-16 from the free throw line), which led to open looks outside (8-of-13 from 3-point range). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all right,â&#x20AC;? Matthews said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all right. I swear, if you guys would have came to our practice you would have never thought that we lost five out of our last six. I swear, you guys would think that we were the Big East Champions and we just came back from New York with another title.â&#x20AC;? Utah State might seem like the typical forgetful mid-major, squeezing into the tournament by claiming its conference championship, but the Aggies are not a team to be overlooked. They are ranked just one slot behind the Golden Eagles in the ESPN/USA Today Poll at No. 25 and rank first in the nation in offensive field goal percentage at 49.8 percent. For the Golden Eagles, however, nothing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not shaven heads or fallen stars â&#x20AC;&#x201D; could surprise them at this point in the season. And no team, game or moment of this tournament will be taken for granted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This feeling never gets old,â&#x20AC;? McNeal said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It only comes around once a year. You know that you have a chance to compete for a national championship, but at the same time, one bad night, you could be done.â&#x20AC;?

As the North Carolina skies cleared up Tuesday, so did the Marquette men's golf team's scorecards. The Golden Eagles shot just 3-over par on the final day of a rainy Pinehurst Intercollegiate by Gatorade to finish in seventh place out of 20 teams with a total score of 22 over par for the three-day tournament. Marquette had only one golfer shoot worse than 1 over Tuesday to move up from Monday's 12th place position. Yet, after hovering near first in the first two days of the tournament, the Golden Eagles came away from

Pinehurst with mixed feelings. "We didn't walk away winners, but we weren't losers either," senior Mike Van Sickle said. "It was an OK finish. It gives us a place to continue to build and just try to get better and improve in two weeks." Coach Tim Grogan was pleased with his squad's ability to finish out rounds, something the Golden Eagles struggled with early on in the tournament. "We got off to similar starts the first two rounds, but we finished these rounds off," Grogan said. "We've put a big emphasis on that so far this spring, because we've put ourselves in really good positions but haven't finished rounds off. It was good to see they could deliver and finish well." Van Sickle led the way again for Marquette, firing a three-day total of 3-under 213, good enough for a tie for third, four shots behind indi-

vidual champion T.J. Howe of Penn State. The performance was Van Sickle's fourth-straight top-5 finish, yet the Marquette star still wasn't entirely happy with the effort. "I was somewhat pleased with my short game, but with my wedges and putts from five feet to 15 feet I didn't quite perform how I wanted to," he said. "I didn't have polished-off rounds. I hit the ball well enough to hit 67s but came away with 70s." Sophomores Kelly Kretz and Ben Sieg were the second Marquette finishers, each shooting 10-overpar 226 to earn themselves a tie for 52nd. Tuesday rounds of 1-over 73 helped bolster both Sieg and Kretz nine spots up the leader board after coming into the day in a tie for 61st. However, Kretz had many of the same feelings as Van Sickle about his performance.

"I was really happy with how I hit the ball but not really happy with my score," Kretz said. "I should have been higher up, but I just couldn't get anything to go in." Rounding out the Golden Eagle scorecard was Dustin Schwab, who improved each day to finish in a tie for 66th with a 13-over-par total of 229, and freshman Matt Haase, who came out hot Sunday but struggled throughout Tuesday to finish in a tie for 73rd with a three-day total of 230. Grogan said the improvement mid-tournament will be something Marquette will need heading into the crux of the spring season. "That's our goal, that everyone contributes," Grogan said. "To have success as a team, we need all five guys to be able to shoot par, or under, to find success and win a tournament or two coming in."

The Marquette womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team has earned a spot in postseason play this year, but not the postseason play everyone may have expected. The Golden Eagles received an at-large bid and a first-round bye in the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Invitation Tournament thanks to a 16-15 overall record, including a 7-9 record in the Big East Conference. The team will play either Duquesne or Butler. Back in November it was clear the Golden Eagles had bigger aspirations than another year in the WNIT. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m coaching this group to be an NCAA Tournament team,â&#x20AC;? coach Terri Mitchell said at the beginning of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is obviously sacrifice and a lot of games until we get to that point, but the desire and energy is there.â&#x20AC;?

Golden Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; upcoming games will be the fact that if they lose their season is over. For all but three Marquette players that will be a familiar feeling thanks to last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s postseason run, and that experience may prove vital for the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newcomers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how important it is to play postseason games, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to feed that into their heads as much as possible,â&#x20AC;? Robinson said. Some of these newcomers are major contributors for the Golden Eagles. In particular, freshman Jessica Pachko has proven to be a force for Marquette all season long. Pachko is third on the team in scoring at 8.7 points per game while leading the team in rebounding at 5.4 a game. Pachko is also second on the team in starts at 24, behind only Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 31. There are three teams on the Marquette side of the bracket that the Golden Eagles have faced this season. Marquette defeated Kansas and Oakland and lost to Syracuse earlier this season.

the home jerseys in this one, selection committee? I will either look brilliant or be laughed at here, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m taking The Ohio State University. East region: No. 4 Xavier (25-7) vs. No. 13 Portland State (23-9) If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking to see a major upset, look no further than the 4-13 match-up between Xavier and Portland State. The Musketeers come limping into March having lost two out of their last three games to unranked opponents and managed just 53 points last week against Temple. They were held to season-lows in points and fieldgoal percentage in that game and now lack any sort of momentum going into the Big Dance. The Pilots of Portland State, however, are flying high after receiving their highest seed in school history. Winners of the Big Sky Conference, Portland State returns to the tournament for a secondstraight year after being trounced by eventual champion Kansas last March. The Pilots have won eight of their last 10 games and are looking to become this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cinderella story. Pilots over the X-Men for my final upset. There you go. So sit back, relax, and feel free to rub it in when none of my upset picks prevail.

No. 6-seeded Marquette team ranked as high as No. 8 in the nation this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Marquette) is as good as I thought they were,â&#x20AC;? Utah State coach Stew Morrill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They create a lot of problemsâ&#x20AC;Ś. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably going to be the best team weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played.â&#x20AC;? The Aggies won the secondmost games in the nation this season, behind only No. 2 seed Memphisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (also in the West Regional) 31 wins. With a 30-4 record, Utah State chalked up its 10th-consecutive 20-victory season. Still, there was a chance that the Aggies would have missed out on the NCAA Tournament if it hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been for that WAC title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get an at-large bid, just because our strength of schedule is kind of weak,â&#x20AC;? Wesley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been up in the air. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have any chances of not going.â&#x20AC;? Now that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in, the Aggies will look to slow down a Marquette offensive attack that scored 78.8 points per game this season (2nd in the Big East). Utah State has the ability to score points in bunches, too, and is 13-0 this season when scoring at least 75 points. Still, the Aggies arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to try and get in a fast-paced contest with Marquette (24-9). Morrill said Utah State will focus on stopping Marquette on the perimeter and limiting turnovers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their guards are going to be a key factor in the game,â&#x20AC;? Morrill

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are able to put the ball on the floor a lot, they are really good penetrators, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some really good perimeter guys with (Jerel) McNeal and (Wesley) Matthews. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They work really hard defensively on pressuring you. If you turn it over a bunch against them, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have problems.â&#x20AC;? Marquetteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team dynamic changed recently when senior guard Dominic James suffered a season-ending foot injury. Morrill said he is only concerned with tape from Marquette games with junior Maurice Acker running the point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve mostly worried about the games with the players they have now,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To watch them a lot with the kid that got hurt playing doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make much sense to me.... They look plenty good to me without him.â&#x20AC;? The Aggies had 171 more assists than turnovers this season, and were led by a duo of guards in Tyler Newbold and Jared Quayle. Newbold averaged 9.1 ppg and had a 4.1-1 assist to turnover ratio this season. Senior forward Gary Wilkinson leads the Aggies in the frontcourt with 17.1 ppg and 6.9 rpg. A balanced offensive attack (three players average double-digit points) has allowed the Aggies to shoot 49.8 percent from the field on the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of guys that can score the ball, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really an unselfish team. Whoever is open, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get them the ball,â&#x20AC;? Newbold said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know where each other will be on the floor at all times, and we want to see each other succeed.â&#x20AC;?
