UK Hoops rolls over Tide 82-68 Huge first-half run breaks game open By Les Johns

The UK Hoops team used a 32-4 first-half run to open up a big lead and then held off Alabama the rest of the way, winning 82-68 at Memorial Coliseum Sunday afternoon. “We are happy to win and go to 90. That is a great development for our team,” UK head coach Matthew Mitchell said. “We were able to score enough points to hold off a tough Alabama team today. I thought that they played really hard and really put a big run on us there in the second half. They never gave up.” After falling behind to the Tide early 13-10, UK broke the game open with an 11-minute run in which they only surrendered one field goal. During the 32-4 stretch, the Cats forced 10 Crimson Tide turnovers and held them to 1-for-12 shooting from the field. The run was fueled offensively by two 3-pointers from junior guard A’dia Mathies and three from senior Keyla Snowden. “We had some good moments and got out to a big lead,” Mitchell said. The Tide stuck around in the second half and had the UK lead down to 11 on three different occasions. “I know that we had an uncharacteristic second half of defense,” Mitchell said. “I didn’t think that we gave a Kentucky-type effort in the second half and that is disappointing.” The Cats turned the ball over 17 times, committed 26 team fouls and were outrebounded 47-41. “It was almost as if we thought if we got a certain amount of points ahead that Alabama was going to go

away,” Mitchell said. “That certainly never happened today.” Snowden, who led a balanced scoring attack for the Cats with 14 points, understood the Cats let their foot off the pedal in the second half. “I just thought that we had a lack of intensity,” Snowden said. “We are going to come back and work harder and be ready for the next game against Ole Miss. We are going to try and put this game behind us and learn from it so we don’t have this type of game again.” Mathies, who added 13 points, feels the team let up on the defensive end in the second half. “We just did a poor job on defense,” Mathies said. “We let them go where they wanted to go, and weren’t denying like we are capable of or picking the ball up in transition. It’s really on us, we have got do a better job of that.” The Cats secured their 20th win of the season for the third straight year. Its 20-2 record is tied for the best start ever for the program. “It’s special to get 20 wins,” Mathies said. “Especially like the two years before I came here, and just looking at the program, it’s a big turnaround, and I’m just glad we can keep the momentum going. We have a lot of talent and people that care. Twenty wins is a great thing.” The Cats (20-2, 9-0 SEC) next face the Ole Miss Rebels (12-10, 2-7 SEC) at 7 p.m. Thursday at Memorial Coliseum. “You aren’t going to paint a masterpiece every Sunday afternoon and every Thursday night,” Mitchell said. “To be able to earn a victory is significant and we are glad to have it.”

Climbing the urban mountain By Luke Fegenbush

The lobby of the Lexington Financial Center was crowded for 8 a.m. on a Saturday. The crowd, which included firefighters, police officers and college students, all gathered for the first Urban Mountain Challenge. Every 16 seconds, a runner was sent up the stairs to climb the 29 stories. Each participant paid between $30 and $45, which went to the UK College of Education, the College of Communication and Information Studies and the Downtown Lexington Corporation, said Tamara Deckard, the event coordinator. Out of the 340 contest-

ants, the competition started with the public safety division at 8 a.m. Their time was recorded by a timing chip — a small, blue plastic box attached to a Velcro strap runners would wear around their wrists. “We just appreciate them doing this,” said Chris Sweat, a member of the Lexington Fire Department. “They really put an emphasis on public safety.” Healthy competition served to drive each member to do their best. Although it wasn’t required, some firefighters such as Joe Nugent chose to make the run in his full uniform. “It’s mostly just showing off,” Nugent said about the 60 See CLIMB on page 2

The Cats beat the Gators 1,854 to 1,826 in the fourth annual Slam, according to a news release. “It’s great to know we can count on the Big Blue Nation to not only beat Florida but save lives, too,” said Martha Osborne, the executive director of marketing and recruitment for Kentucky Blood Center, in a press release. “The blood donated this week will touch the lives of thousands of Kentuckians,” she said.

Winter concert celebrates dance minor 3-part performance incorporates professionals, students KAYLA PICKRELL Kernel columnist

The “3Dimensions: Winter Dance Concert” kicked off the weekend with a fresh start to UK’s new dance minor. The three-part concert featured

“Mama Gina,” “How to Fold a Pleated Skirt: An Educational Guide” and the Fosse Suite. Blake Pearson, a New York City guest choreographer, presided over “Mama Gina.” Seven students helped choreograph the performance as well. The performance was repetitive,

yet fit perfectly with the music and choreography of the other dancers. “My experience with the winter dance concert has been one of growth both as a dancer and performer,” said Les Gibbs, one of the student performers in the concert. “This is my first dance concert,” said Tyler Medaris, a graduate student from the University of Miami. “It was fun, and I really enjoyed it.” The next dance involved five students that helped with the chore-


ography of Susan Thiel, dance program coordinator. Each performer brought in his or her “how-to” on something in life, including “how to mend a broken heart” and “how to grow up.” The performers used dialogue during this part of the concert to connect with the audience. When a performer introduced “how to mend a broken heart,” she used the stories of how people in her life tried to help her move on and how they never truly helped her.

Cool Cats split 2 against Illinois By Patrick Thompson

The Cool Cats faced off against Illinois last weekend, splitting a pair of games 4-2 and 0-5. Saturday night’s action was the least impressive of the two outings, as UK was outshot and outplayed for the majority of the game. UK managed 22 shots throughout the game, compared with Illinois’ 59. “We got outworked,” senior captain Billy Glass said. “But it helped that we won last night (Friday), so we have that to build on going into the showcase next weekend.” The first period went smoothly for the Cats. Both teams played physically and generated many scoring opportunities on both sides. There were times where UK hesitated on open looks at the net and failed to capitalize on key chances, missing the net or turning the puck over in the slot. UK was able to stay in the game through a stellar

first period performance by sophomore goalie Aaron Tenfelde, who stopped all 18 Illinois shots. At one point an Illinois pass to an open man in the slot caught Tenfelde out of position, but he was able to stretch out and make a spectacular save with his glove. The second period started with neither team having the upper hand as the score was tied at zero. However, UK couldn’t stay out of the penalty box, resulting in two Illinois power play goals.

Next Game Who: Kentucky vs. East Carolina University When: Friday Where: East Carolina UK was out-hustled throughout the second period, as Illinois threw a two-man forecheck at them. They also had trouble breaking out of the defensive zone, resulting in turnovers and scoring opportunities for Illinois.

Henry Smith, a UK law student, was among them. “I trained by running up and down the stairs of the Patterson Office Tower,” Smith said. He has participated in 5K races before, but has never competed in a tower run. Smith said he would participate again next year because he now knows what it is like. “I can pace myself and do better,” he said. The idea of running up the steps for fun might be a new one for most, but for those like Nugent, a tower run is a familiar concept. “I ran the Leukemia and Lymphoma run in Seattle twice, and I’ve also done one in Baltimore,” Nugent said. After running, contestants could participate in warm-down stretches on the second

HBO’s premieres horse-racing series LOS ANGELES — A series about horse racing led by Dustin Hoffman and Nick Nolte sounds like a sure thing. But “Luck,” which debuts Sunday night on HBO, is so nuanced it may alienate viewers who don’t spend every Saturday afternoon at the track. That’s just fine with creator David Milch. “It’s an act of faith,” said Milch, who previously challenged audiences with “Deadwood” and “John From Cincinnati.” “I think your fundamental responsibility is to stay true to the deepest nature and intention of the material, and that’s what we did.” But at what cost? I’ve seen the first six episodes and I’m still scratching my head. Here’s what I do know: Hoffman plays Chester Bernstein, a recently paroled mobster bent on turning the Santa Anita racetrack into a casino while double-crossing his former partner. He’s aided by Gus Demitriou (Dennis Farina), whose main function appears to be keeping his boss company at night with conversations that will remind you of the nightcaps shared by William Shatner and James Spader

Gemini (May 21-June 21) — Today is an 8 — It's getting easier to step forward. It seems so comfortable to hide out, but there are costs. Your creativity wants to escape. Cook something up.

on “Boston Legal.” Nolte, who just received an Oscar nomination for his turn in “Warrior,” portrays a soulful horse trainer betting big on a brilliant horse and a spunky jockey (Kerry Condon). What else is “Luck” about? Beats me. In the pilot, a group of track regulars try to score on a Pick Six, a game that Milch refuses to explain to viewers. Michael Mann confesses that he still doesn’t know how it works — and he directed it. “There’s a tremendous responsibility in taking on this narrative,” said Mann, who helmed “The Insider” and “Heat.” “It’s very complex and filled with wonderful characters whose lives we just immerse into without prelude or context. That challenge was very exciting to me.” “Luck” may be enigmatic, but it is gorgeous to watch. Mann’s coverage of the race horses, shot with small cameras hung from light rigs invented just for the show, is as breathtaking as the cinematic tone he established for “Miami Vice.”

understand. Defer gratification. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is an 8 — Tap into abundance without spending more. Get the word out, and it goes farther than expected.

“I thought we worked with them; they are a hungry, quality team,” head coach Rob Docherty said. “They won more battles for loose pucks. We worked with them but we gave it away in the second,” Docherty said. “The game lasts for 60 minutes, and we have to play all three periods.” The third period saw more of the same from UK’s offense, as they struggled with penalties and couldn’t seem to find the back of the net on scoring opportunities. However, UK played physically in the third period which was keyed by a monstrous hit from freshman forward Charlie Hales, who barreled into an Illinois winger and planted him flat on his back near the boards. Though it was a tough loss for UK, the team looked at it optimistically. “We’re not going to get down on ourselves for the loss,” Glass said. “We’re just going to see what we need to work on, and bring that into the showcase next weekend.”

After a raffle and a short contest where participants guessed the total number of stairs climbed by all the runners that day (the answer was 214,488 stairs), the winners were announced. “I was pretty happy with my time,” Sweat said after he completed the race. “I paced myself and got under four minutes, which is what I was aiming for.” Antonio Stuckey, a church pastor and maintenance electrician, was less happy with how he performed. “If I could’ve paced myself, I would’ve done so much better,” he said. However, most seemed satisfied with the event itself. “There were plenty of people. They did a really good job,” Sweat said. Deckard, the event coordinator, commented on the possibility of doing the event again next year. “Prospects for next year look very good,” Deckard said. “We may add to it, with maybe a run or a bike ride to make it more challenging.”

Incarcerating youth: An American injustice We teach our youth the “golden rules:” To treat others the way they would like be treated, to share, to tell the truth and to forgive. For the 2,600 people serving a life without parole sentence in a U.S. adult prison for EVA crimes they committed MCENRUE while under age 18, according to a 2009 Human Kernel Rights Watch report, these columnist lessons no longer apply. These individuals have already been deemed as liabilities who are dangerous because they failed to adhere to society’s virtues, and they must serve their sentence accordingly. But, in actu-

ality, it is the American society who has failed them. The U.S. system of youth incarceration is an injustice that is severely out-of-step with international law, which rejects the practice of trying adolescents as adults and administering long sentences. Incarcerating young people is not only costly; it is unfair and ineffective in prohibiting crime. According to the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, young people who are transferred from the juvenile justice system to the adult criminal system are approximately 34 percent more likely to be rearrested for a crime than those kept within the juvenile court system. This isn’t surprising considering the limited services, lack of positive role models and

prevalence of violence within adult facilities. Adult facilities fail to provide youth with the educational and rehabilitative services needed at their stage of development. Without the suitable educational merits or vocational training, youth offenders who are released back into their communities are even less capable of becoming employed and achieving economic success. Adult facilities also place youth in immense danger of becoming sexual victims. “More than any other group of incarcerated persons, youth incarcerated with adults are probably at the highest risk for sexual abuse,” the National Prison Rape Elimination Commission reported. And with juveniles comprising only one percent of adult jail inmates, the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ report that 13 percent of all inmate-on-inmate sexual violence victims were youth under the age of 18 is truly sickening. Adult facilities fail to keep youth safe from violence as well, and most often young people are segregated into isolation or solitary confinement, which regularly consists of being locked in small cells with no natural light for 23 hours a day, according to the Campaign for Youth Justice. These conditions can lead to paranoia, anxiety, mental disorders and increased risk of suicide. The grim reality is that youths detained in adult jails are 36 times more likely to commit suicide than those housed in juvenile detention facilities. Is this justice? Should a young person’s future be determined by a choice he or she made before their cognitive abilities fully developed? Were these individuals simply born monsters or did they

make an adolescent mistake due to their lack of maturity? In 1982, a jury sentenced Kevin Stanford to death for a crime he committed when he was only 17 years old. Stanford received weak representation at his trial. No attempt was made to challenge damaging testimony or to pursue the two witnesses who identified another individual being at the murder scene. Another key piece of evidence — Stanford’s social history — was also never presented to the jury. The all-white jury that convicted the African-American teenager was never informed of his life filled with neglect, maltreatment and violence, as well as sexual, physical and mental abuse. The fact is that youth offenders, like Stanford, often grow up in a home that fails to teach society’s “golden rules.” Youth offenders are often raised in impoverished environments and experience a combination of neglect, violence, poverty and physical, sexual or psychological abuse. These conditions, the International Justice Project reports, decrease one’s ability to make choices rationally. Trying youths as adults and administering long sentences is a pervasive and profound issue shaping communities because of the nature of power. It is unfair for society to place immense punishment on an individual who lacks control of their living conditions, impulses, emotions, judgments and identity. When prosecuting young people as adults, emphasis should not be placed merely on the facts of the crime. We must also examine and present the individual’s social history. Ultimately, we have all already failed these youth offenders by failing to intervene in the detrimental, often horrific, circumstances of their life. We cannot fail them again when it matters most — deciding their future. Eva McEnrue is a journalism senior and the Kernel’s opinion editor. Email

Tennis team making a racket Cats advance in indoor championships on Gomez’s win By Andrew Dunn

UK rolled to a 6-0 record on Saturday, defeating No. 22 Tulsa 4-1 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Kickoff Weekend. By winning against Tulsa, the Cats advanced to the round of 16 in the National Indoor Championships for the third straight year. Overall, it’s the fifth straight round of 16 the Cats have made, including the past two indoor tournaments and their outdoor appearances

over the last couple seasons. The deciding match of the tournament didn’t involve Eric Quigley or Anthony Rossi, as would be expected — it involved sophomore Alejandro Gomez, who’s ranked No. 111 in the nation. Gomez’s big win on the final day of the kickoff weekend clinched the match for UK. After splitting the first two sets against Tristan Jackson, Gomez suddenly went on a roll, dominating the third set with a 6-0 victory. The score of the match was 6-3,

3-6, 6-0. While there’s no doubt Gomez was impressive, he wasn’t the only one. His match may have been the biggest, but his teammates were rather impressive also. Fifth-ranked Eric Quigley was impressive, taking his match 6-3, 6-4. Thirty-sixthranked Anthony Rossi — just a couple weeks removed from his championship in the SEC Coaches’ Indoor tournament in Lexington — also played well, winning 7-5, 75. Tom Jomby was the

Different Jones, different team Sophomore’s big night ‘what we’ve been waiting for’ UK might have had its “coming of age” game in Louisiana with a 7450 win AARON over LSU. SMITH A game that Kernel columnist made it look like UK might be on its way to five more games in the state — three in the SEC Tournament and two in the Final Four. “That’s probably the best we’ve played all year,” head coach John Calipari said, according to quotes distributed by And if Terrence Jones plays like he did Saturday, those goals become that much more attainable. Jones scored a seasonhigh 27 points, grabbed nine rebounds and played the way a Terrence Jones running on full throttle can play. In one stretch that spanned the late first half

and early second half, Jones went on a personal 13-0 run. Jones scored on a dunk or layup four straight times, including a three-point play to finish his spree. Calipari said this type of game from the sophomore was “what we’ve been waiting on.” It finally came. But it has to continue. “If this is who you are, then this is who you should be every game,” Calipari said. UK is starting to separate itself from the rest of the college basketball pack. It’s the near-unanimous No. 1 team. It’s undefeated in conference play and a point away from being undefeated, period. The main thing Calipari has said must happen for UK to totally split away from the pack, to assert itself as the unquestioned dominant team in basketball, is to negate physical play. UK did that against LSU. Who did it start with? Terrence Jones. “Now you’ve got a 250pound guy who’s not backing away,” Calipari said.

If Jones isn’t backing away, he’s closer to being what Calipari called him back in October — one of the top three players in the nation. He hasn’t expressed the same sentiment since. He wishes he had. As Calipari said, if he knew the secret to getting Jones playing like he did against LSU every game, he would have resolved it “a month ago.” Instead, a 27-point game serves as a reminder of what could be, what should be. The talented sophomore taking the reigns of a talented, young team. “That’s the guy,” Calipari said, “that people want to play with and coach.”

Next Game Who: Kentucky vs. Tennessee When: Tuesday at 7 p.m. Where: Rupp Arena Televised: ESPNU

team’s fourth winner, while Alex Musialek and Panav Jha didn’t finish their matches (both were winning their respective games when play was halted). UK remains undefeated on the season, and it has been a great beginning for a very promising team. Cedric Kauffmann, UK’s associate head coach, was especially proud of the sophomore class, saying he was “particularly happy” with how the sophomore athletes had been performing. Since 2009, the Cats are 47-9 on their home court, making a big statement to other teams coming to town. The team won’t continue into the National Championships’ round of 16 until Feb. 17, but in the meantime, the Cats will play host PHOTO BY QUIANNA LIGE | STAFF to Pepperdine noon on Sun- UK sophomore Alejandro Gomez’s three-set win clinched UK’s spot day. in the National Indoor Championship round of 16.
