Teague improves as season progresses Numbers increase in recent games
Lady Vols ‘top’ UK Hoops Cats fall 91, 54 on the road to Tennessee By Les Johns firstname.lastname@example.org
ESPN delivered Monday night’s UK Hoops game in three dimensions, but the Lady Volunteers controlled the Cats in every possible dimension. The Vols out-rebounded, out-shot, created more assists and forced more turnovers than the Cats. UT routed the Cats 91-54 at Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, Tenn., Monday night. The Volunteer crowd of 14,807 was energetic even before the tip-off as the UT starters were introduced through a foggy entrance to the sounds of loud music, fireworks and pyrotechnics. “Our fans are always great when it’s at home and just having them bringing a positive, energetic environment — that’s amazing,” Tennessee senior forward Glory Johnson said. “I think it helps our team a lot.” The Vols capitalized on the crowd-induced momentum and started hot, draining their first two 3-pointers and jumping ahead 10-2, forcing UK head coach Matthew Mitchell to burn a timeout to settle down his team a little over two minutes into the game. After essentially trading baskets with the Vols for the next 10 minutes of action, the Cats allowed a 21-10 UT run to finish out the half, traling 46-28. “I really thought until the very end of the half we were OK,” Mitchell said. “I just kept waiting for us to make a run and we started turning them over a little bit, we started to get some looks, we just couldn’t make any shots.” The Cats never pulled closer than within 15 points in the second half, however, with the UT lead ballooning to as much as 40 points at 84-44 with 4:37 left in the game. The Vols dominated in nearly every statistical category available for viewing. The Cats connected on 21-63 shots from the field for 33.3 percent. “(It was) just our offensive execution when the ball wasn’t going in the basket,” UK freshman guard Bria Goss said. “I felt like as a team we got discouraged where we needed to see that as adversity, which we go through every day and fight back strong. You know we just need to bounce back.” The Vols were 36-61 from the field for 59 percent shooting. “The players put in a lot of work on their own to getting into Pratt Pavilion (UT’s practice courts) and putting up extra shots after practice since last Thursday,” Tennessee head coach Pat Summitt

said. “I think you saw a lot of them shoot the ball with confidence tonight.” The Cats are now 0-3 this season when they allow their opponent to shoot greater than 50 percent from the floor, including the last two consecutive games. “We are not getting as much heat on the ball and we’re not able to pressure, and I think people are handling that,” Mitchell said. “They certainly handled it better the last couple games to make enough plays.” The Vols dominated the backboard, out-rebounding the Cats 45-27. “We worked really hard the last two days in rebounding and defense and I
think it shows. When we do those two things, everything else falls in place for us, “ Tennessee associate head coach Holly Warlick said. “It was a focal point. We played with a lot of heart and a lot of effort, and that’s what rebounding is. We had a lot of effort tonight.” The Cats’ signature pressure defense resulted in 19 UT turnovers, but the Cats turned the ball over 20 times themselves. The turnovers led to the Vols having a 3215 advantage in points off turnovers. “Kentucky’s a great basketball team,” Warlick said. “They force you to play fast. They force you to take care of See HOOPS on page 2
UK to use former Northside Branch of Lexington library for outreach, research
Director travels to India to open doors for students
Come August, undergraduate biology students will share the old Northside Branch of the LexingtonPublic Library, located on Russell Cave Road, with a UK outreach program. The P-12 Math and Science outreach unit of the Partnership Institute for Math and Science Education Reform provides outreach groups and training for administrators and teachers in the areas of math and science. No permanent residence exists for the unit of PIMSER. “We used to use local churches. We’ve used a lot of hotels,” said Kim Zeidler-Watters, director of the program. For those who travel far, “the

A valid student or UK faculty/staff ID must be presented upon entry. The practice and scrimmage will air live from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on WKYT, ESPNU, ESPN3 and UKathletics.com.

space allows for easy access,” Zeidler-Watters said. “Many come from western or eastern Kentucky for the outreach program.” Parking will be available, and everything is on one level so educators won’t have to haul materials up stairs. It is also close to the interstate, so campus traffic can be avoided. Zeidler-Watters said she hopes to eventually have an expansion on the back for a larger training space with a capacity of 70-150. Bought by the university in 2008, the Northside building is now part of the ecological research facility. It sits aside a 55-acre field, home to animals that aid in ecological research, UK Provost Kumble Subbaswamy said.

Dressed in jeans and a Legend-ofZelda-emblemed cowboy hat, ordained minister Cyrus Karimian presided over his family member’s wedding. The cowboy-themed wedding was the second wedding he has officiated. Karimian, a graduate student working on his dissertation, is just one of 83 UK community members who are ordained ministers. They are ordained through the Universal Life Church Monastery, a nonprofit organization from Seattle, Wash., that gives people the ability to perform legally-recognized wedding ceremonies, according to its website. Karimian said he wasn’t serious when he became ordained. “I did it as a joke to make my mom laugh,” Karimian said, “so she could call me ‘reverend.’” In just a few minutes, anyone can register online to be ordained for free. “It’s not like it’s a big, long process,” said Eric Gresham, a social work junior, who is also ordained. All one has to do is create an account at themonastery.org. “It is a lot more meaningful or touching when a friend or family member performs a wedding,” said Andy Fulton, media spokesman for Universal Life Church. Fulton, who is a senior at the University of Washington, said becoming ordained is “increasing dramatically” among college students. Since the church was founded in 2006, the number of ordained college students has doubled, he said. “People our age are really less interested in having a conventional clergy lead (a ceremony),” Fulton said. He said there isn’t a “desire to maintain tradition.” Karimian, who identifies as nondenominational, has officiated two wedding ceremonies and said the bride and groom wanted to “break away from traditional ceremonies.” Both weddings were outside and not in a church. Gresham will be presiding over his friends’ wedding in a year and a half, and said his friends didn’t want a pasSee MINISTERS on page 2

Simmons was 10-17 from the field, including 3-5 from behind the arc. Senior forward Shekinna Stricklen added 18 points and six rebounds for the Vols. Goss led the Cats in scoring with 15 points. She sat out much of the first half after collecting two personal fouls just 97 seconds into the game. UK junior guard A’dia Mathies, who scored 34 points against the Vols a month ago in Lexington, contributed 12 points on 5-13 shooting. “Mathies had a lot to do with our defeat against Kentucky, so she was a focal point for us,” Warlick said. “We wanted to make sure she

Many students can look forward to a well proposed program after the trip to India.”

For the most part, except for a stretch at the end of the first half, we did a good job on her.” Even after the loss, the Cats stay alone atop the SEC regular-season standings. The No. 7 Cats (21-4, 10-2 SEC) hold a one-game edge over the No. 13 Vols (18-7, 9-3 SEC). Arkansas, Georgia and South Carolina are all tied for third place in the league with 8-4 conference records. “(The loss) should probably count as more than one loss, but it only counts as one, so we are leaving town in first place and need to find some way to get it together and see if we can earn a victory Thursday night,” Mitchell said. “I think that the most valuable thing we can do is get the DVD (of the game) and shatter it into a thousand pieces and get our mind focused. We don’t have

Gresham said since he’s known his friends for a long time, he isn’t nervous. “Getting married by someone you’re best friends with,” he said, is better than “a pastor you don’t know very well.” The first wedding Karimian officiated was his cousin’s, and he said he was happy to do it. He recalled surprising everyone at the ceremony
— as the bride walked down the aisle, he moved from his spot as a groomsman to the alter where he was holding a Bible. He said everyone looked shocked, especially his aunt, who is the mother of the groom. He then looked to his mother, who had “one of the biggest grins I’ve ever seen on her face,” he said. The first thing his mom asked him after the ceremony was if it is legal. And it is legal. The nonprofit organization is registered as a
church, and there are no laws concerning ordination for church ministers. All but three states recognize the ministers, Fulton said. Becoming ordained is most popular for weddings, Fulton said, however one could officiate burials or do hospice work at hospitals. “They don’t become ordained for religious reasons,” Fulton said. “It doesn’t matter what religious affiliation a minister has.” It is also a matter of cost, as it can cost hundreds of dollars to get a minister, he said.
“But if you have a friend ordained, they can do it for free,” Fulton said. “It is more intimate and meaningful, and less expensive.” Karimian said he was honored to do the weddings for his family and friends, but probably won’t for others. “I’m not going to go out and marry just anybody just because I could do it,” he said. Gresham agreed. “I don’t really have a desire to do strangers’ weddings,” Gresham said.
about our role in helping the university transform the former Northside Library into a resource center for science, technology, engineering and math education,” Sheri Evans Depp, director of Talent Management for Lexmark, said in an email to the Kernel. “Our goal is to encourage more students to pursue careers in math and science and help fuel growth and innovation in our community.” Not only do biology and education students benefit, but the building is also an opportunity for the “pipeline of high school students,” Subbaswamy said. “It’s a win-win-win situation.”

Mockery of accents lacks ‘comedic value’ By Amanda Newsome email@example.com
This letter is a response to a Feb. 9 cartoon published in the Kentucky Kernel. I am writing in response and in protest to the “funny” cartoon about Eastern Kentucky accents. To some, it may come off as hilarious, but I, along with many others, find it very offensive. I am a freshman at UK, who comes from Eastern Kentucky. Yes, I may have a “country” accent, but I am proud of it. It makes me who I am. Another thing, in the cartoon Eastern Kentuckians come across as uneducated: “I can tell by your ‘I’s’ you are from the country!” “How can you tell I’m from Eastern Kentucky by just looking at my ‘eyes’?” I am an Eastern Kentuckian from Floyd County who not only was a straight A student throughout school, but I was also on the volleyball team, track team, captain of the dance team and worked a part-time job. I graduated as salutatorian of my
class and received a full-paid Robinson Scholarship (just throwing that out there), which shows that I — and other Eastern Kentuckians — are intelligent, classy and friendly. We have that special Southern hospitality and our accents just help in making us “southerners” that much more adorable.
I am a freshman who came from Eastern Kentucky. Yes, I may have a “country” accent, but I am proud of it. Having an astounding sense of humor, I also would like to recognize how unfunny this cartoon was and how it lacked comedic value. Thanks, and Y’ALL have a wonderful day!

Rupp renovation wasteful, irresponsible use of money NOLAN GRAY Guest columnist
It’s a new year, but nothing’s changed. In keeping with Kentucky’s honor of being the worst run state in the country (thanks, Forbes), our legislators have rolled out a new plan to transfer millions of dollars — $250 to $300 million, to be exact — from the working taxpayers of our state to the billionaire contractors, under the guise of a new place to play basketball and shop. Now that I have your attention, let’s go through some of the problems with this new “revitalization” the city government recently unveiled. A crucial part of the plan is a vast expansion of the Convention Center, including more spaces for shops and restaurants within the complex the city hopes to build. More downtown activity? Urban revitalization? Well, let’s sober up with a little reality before we get swept up by political buzz words. The small complex currently attached to Rupp is, from what I gather, a microcosm of what the city hopes this new expanded
center will be. Has anyone been in there on a non-game day? It’s a ghost town. Need more proof that downtown Lexington doesn’t need a government engineered shopping center? Just look across the street at Victorian Square Shoppes and entertainment. Not only is the place nearly empty, but it seems not even the owners view it as economically viable; it recently went up for sale. The simple fact is if Lexington wants a downtown shopping center, individuals will freely start and support one. Aside from the fact that this sort of thing is clearly not economically viable, why should the government be in the business of building shopping centers anyway? Whether or not you share my skepticism of the government’s ability to control the economy, you can at least accept that the government has better things to spend money on than shopping centers and basketball courts. While the people of our state struggle through a recession, UK students face painful tuition increases and the legions of excellent UK employees face difficult pay freezes; the city and state shouldn’t be wasting our time and money with such costly and ridiculous operations. The whole situation would be laughable if only it didn’t
reek of corrupt government incompetence. Without squandering money on such vast enterprises, we’re already barely avoiding being in debt. Even if we could indeed afford such an operation (which I highly doubt), why not give the money back to the people through tax cuts or spend it on operations that all Kentuckians can agree on, such as education and infrastructure? If Lexington needed an expanded shopping and dining area, free individuals would create these things without taking taxpayers’ money. While we’re facing big cuts, government deficits and a recession, putting money into a place to play basketball and a shopping center doomed to fail is downright irresponsible. As overtaxed and underemployed citizens of Kentucky, we should reject this wastefulness. As students and employees of UK, we should call attention to the increasing tuition and flat pay we are forced to endure for poor state budgeting. In these times of hardship, the city and state should not be giving our money to these wealthy and connected contractors. In short, we should roundly reject the proposed Rupp overhaul.

Teague’s been improving Point guard’s play will be vital as Cats head toward tournaments AARON SMITH Kernel columnist
Marquis Teague apparently heard the criticism pointed his way about whether he was the right point guard for this talented and balanced UK team. At the very least, head coach John Calipari heard. Either way, the doubts were known internally. “When you start getting drilled in the paper, and everybody’s killing you on the blogs — they were telling us to start Doron Lamb,” Calipari said, pointing a finger at one reporter who had written that very statement. “You start reading that as a player, you’re like, ‘What?’” The papers and the blogs aren’t saying that
anymore. Not after Teague averaged 7.5 points, 5.8 assists and 2.1 turnovers in his last eight games. “The last month, he’s really focused and listened and practiced hard,” Calipari said, “and now he’s transformed into what one of our typical point guards play like.” Maybe not quite. Teague still isn’t the same type of player as Derrick Rose or John Wall. But he doesn’t have to be. Not on this team, not with these players surrounding him on the floor. Teague’s primary concern is running the team and directing the offense — not scoring 32 points per game, as Calipari said Teague thought he could do when he got to UK. Whether it was the blogs, Calipari’s constant carping, or simply a freshman learning the ropes of college basketball, Teague
evolved. He didn’t need to score to be great. In 15 non-conference games, Teague shot 9.2 times per game. In 11 conference games, he’s shot 7.7 times per game. He hadn’t shot more than six times in five games until Vanderbilt, when he recognized he had a huge mismatch against Brad Tinsley. And so Calipari’s (very) vocal instructions have reduced in number over the last month. “You can’t really yell at Marquis for how he’s playing,” Darius Miller said. “He’s being our floor general, getting everybody where they need to be, and it’s made us a better team.” Teague has, since the beginning of the season, been seen as the one player who could most determine UK’s long-term success. If he doesn’t emerge as a point guard capable of making all that talent mesh,
he would hinder the chances at title No. 8 — maybe even be the single reason it didn’t happen, as Sports Illustrated’s Seth Davis tweeted last week. If he does, UK’s collective ceiling pushes higher. Everyone else, already playing well, can play even better. At this point, it looks like the latter will be the case. Against the best two opponents in the league, Florida and Vanderbilt, Teague turned in stellar games against both. He scored 12 points and had 10 assists against the Gators and then had 13 points, eight assists and one turnover (while completely controlling the entire first half) against the Commodores. “My confidence is getting back where it used to be,” Teague said. The papers and the blogs won’t be there to tear it down now.

Will we always love Whitney? How will she be remembered? Reflecting on the life, career, death of famous singer By Scott Collins and Randy Lewis MCT
LOS ANGELES — When Whitney Houston was found lifeless in her Beverly Hills hotel room Saturday, music fans heard more than a few echoes of another 1980s pop superstar who died suddenly less than three years ago. Like Michael Jackson, Houston was a global recording force who parlayed R&B music into slick, chart-topping hits that defined an era, only to be brought low by a cascade of personal woes, which, in Houston’s case, included admitted drug abuse, a deeply troubled marriage and financial travails. And like Jackson, Houston, who was 48, has seen a huge posthumous spike in sales. Sunday’s Grammys, which, amid the coronation of the retro torch singer Adele featured recurrent heartfelt tributes to Houston, including Jennifer Hudson’s rendition of her biggest hit, “I Will Always Love You,” delivered the show’s second-highest ratings of all time. The show
attracted nearly 40 million viewers, according to Nielsen, an impressive mark that stands behind only the 1984 Grammys when Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” helped draw an audience of more than 51 million. Yet while the postmortem celebration and curiosity may be inevitable, the larger question remains whether Houston’s passing will, like Jackson’s, spur a wholesale reappraisal of a troubled performer — will she be seen as an icon or will she be viewed in a more limited way, as a onceglittering product of the Reagan era that made her famous. While Jackson’s sales had plummeted for years after his mid-1980s heyday as the “King of Pop,” his 2009 death revived his catalog, with more than 10 million albums and 16 million song downloads since then. Houston faces long odds in matching that, partly because her estate has less material to sell. Her career encompassed just six studio albums, not including soundtracks and compilations; Jackson produced 10 as a solo artist, and that’s not
counting the anthologies or his work with the Jackson 5. Seven of the top 10 album sellers on Amazon on Monday were by Houston, and her famous 1992 version of “I Will Always Love You” — one of the best-selling records of all time — was No. 1 on the iTunes chart. Houston’s rich voice is filling the radio airwaves again as well. John Ivey, senior vice president of programming for Clear Channel Radio, whose network of about 850 stations makes it the largest radio owner in the country, said he quickly made the decision to put Houston’s music in rotation after word of her death broke Saturday. Much of Houston’s appeal is generational. For fans of a certain age, her songs symbolized carefree youth, romance and self-discovery, leading to the unmatched feat of seven straight No. 1 singles. “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” “Greatest Love of All,” “Saving All My Love for You” — each provided the soundtrack to countless teenage birthday sleepovers, bachelorette parties and wedding receptions. Since the late 1990s, though, Houston had become far better known for tabloid headlines than music. Her
$100 million deal with Arista in 2001, a record at the time, yielded platinum albums that nevertheless delivered a mere fraction of her earlier sales. Meanwhile, her drug abuse and tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown became a perennial source of gossip. Meanwhile, pop music moved on. Today’s chart toppers hark back less to the smooth 1970s R&B that Houston reinterpreted and more to European dance music, hip-hop and electronica. Even Adele, who dominated Sunday’s Grammys with six awards, has more in common with blues-tinged singers such as Etta James than with Houston’s brand of pop. But artistic reputations ebb and flow in unexpected ways, and there’s little telling what value future generations might find in Houston’s music — if they listen at all. “When you reach that level of popularity, it’s because you are an individually unique and precious talent, and that’s what sets you apart from everyone else,” Caulfield said. “In death, you can’t compare them to anyone else. Their uniqueness is what made them a star. ... There’s no metric, no formula to figure this out.”
