Harrow transferring to Georgia State Point guard said he wants to be closer to his family By Tom Hurley

Six incoming five-star All-Americans, including the top-rated point guard in the Class of 2013 caused somewhat of a logjam on the depth chart on the Cats’ 2013-14 roster.

The congestion eased a little Sunday when sophomore guard Ryan Harrow announced Sunday that he will not be returning for his junior season and will instead transfer to Georgia State. Harrow’s father suffered a stroke in 2012 and the Mari-

etta, Ga., native cited his father’s health as the reason behind the move. “I really need to be home with him to be closer to him to make sure he’s taken care of,” Harrow said to Doug Roberson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Harrow submitted the necessary paperwork to transfer last week and has asked the NCAA to grant him permission to be eligible to play next season. In extenuating circumstances the NCAA has allowed players to play immediately in the past, rather than sit out a year as per NCAA transfer rules. UK head coach John

Wins on Friday and Sunday earned No. 8 UK baseball a series win over Georgia at Cliff Hagan Stadium. Junior starting pitcher Corey Littrell worked seven

innings of three-hit ball and struck out 12 as he picked up the win in the Cats’ 5-0 victory Sunday. “He was able to get the cutter underneath the righthanded barrel, run the left handers out of bat,” UK head coach Gary Henderson said

of Littrell’s performance. “He just mixed it up. He did everything that you’re supposed to do to pitch effectively.” Sunday’s win extends the Cats’ streak of winning every series they’ve played so far in 2013. A leadoff triple from sophomore centerfielder Austin Cousino helped UK (21-6, 6-3 SEC) jump to a 1-0 first inning lead that was nev-

er relinquished. The Cats would end the game without sophomore first baseman A.J. Reed and sophomore infielder Thomas Bernal, who both left the game with injuries. Henderson revealed postgame that Reed suffered a sprained ankle and Bernal a dislocated elbow. Henderson said he hopes

Last year, UK Hoops faced the Connecticut Huskies in the Elite Eight in a northeastern arena filled with UConn faithful. This year, UK Hoops will face the Connecticut Huskies in the Elite Eight in a northeastern arena filled with UConn faithful. Déjà vu, right? Just like last season, UK is the No. 2 seed and UConn the No. 1 seed. There are familiar faces on both sidelines, returning to the Final ALEX Four’s FORKNER doorstep for what Kernel should be columnist an exciting rematch. But with all the similarities, shouldn’t the result be the same? The Cats are hoping for a different outcome than the 15-point loss to the Huskies, which ended last season, and leading the case for a trip to New Orleans are two players who weren’t suited up for last year’s matchup. Jennifer O’Neill and DeNesha Stallworth both redshirted last year, O’Neill because of a foot injury and Stallworth due to transfer restrictions when she came

to UK from California. O’Neill is a spark plug of a point guard, pushing the pace as fast as UK head coach Matthew Mitchell wants it to go, a factor missing from last season’s offense. When she’s feeling it, O’Neill’s a deadeye shooter capable of racking up points, and not just spotting up, either. She’s just as prolific when she puts the ball on the floor and pulls up over a defender. On the season, O’Neill is making 39.3 percent of her field goals, and 35.9 percent of her 3point field goals. O’Neill also leads UK in assists this season with 99. Against Delaware on Saturday, O’Neill sank four 3-pointers and finished with a team-high 19 points, leading her team to victory over the formidable Elena Delle Donne and the rest of the Blue Hens. Stallworth is a 6-foot-3 power forward/center who gives the Cats consistent post scoring, a valuable asset in tournament play. When UK needs a bucket, it can run a set to get the ball to Stallworth down low. The junior is shooting 48.9 percent from the field on the season and has dealt 67 assists.

A series of many genres

Guard unlike past one-and-dones; his decision’s not surprising

By William Wright

The Late Night Film Series is filling Worsham Theater with three times as many moviegoers than in previous years. In the 2009-10 school year, Late Night brought 3,553 people into the Student Center to watch free movies. In the 2011-12 school year almost 10,000 people attended. This year, the group is already beating that record by more than 4,000 viewers, with more than 10 movies left to show. “We’re very interested in new ideas and approaches, and that philosophy is very responsible for our growth in 2011. We established a vision for ourselves. We wanted to go from a campus afterthought to a campus staple and tradition,” said Zach Lamb, an English senior. Late Night employees cite collaboration with faculty, student organizations and

Calipari released a statement Sunday after news broke of Harrow’s decision to transfer. “Given the health of his dad, we fully support Ryan’s decision to transfer to Georgia State to be closer to his family in Atlanta,” Calipari said. Harrow arrived at UK in fall 2011 after starting 10 games and averaging 9.3

academic departments as a contributing factor to the dramatic increase in attendance. The group is also collaborating with OUTsource to make the Queer and Now movie series. Movies will be shown that relate to contemporary topics in the LGBT community. “The movies apply to a specific community, but they are movies that everyone can enjoy,” said electrical engineering senior Kelly Mautz. Late Night partnered with the Hispanic Studies Department to show Noches

de Terror, a series of Spanish horror films. It also partnered with the English department to show films about literature. “We keep a very open mind with collaborations,” Lamb said. “It gives both Late Night and the other group great exposure.” Late Night shows popular movies that students want to see and more obscure movies that its organizers want students to see, Lamb said. There’s a strategy in scheduling which movies to show and when to show them, said Parker Britton, a

linguistics and German sophomore. “We will show a more popular movie on Thursday, and then bring them back for a similar, but more obscure, movie on Friday,” Britton said. “We pair everything up specifically, it’s not haphazardly thrown together.” Movies with similar themes or concepts, such as “Black Swan” and “American Psycho,” are shown in the same week. Lamb said the group has taken a disciplined approach to marketing. The student employees See FILM on page 2

-John Calipari’s past five point guards were oneand-dones. They each spent one year under him before being drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft. Ryan Harrow will also be a oneand-done, but under DAVID much difSCHUH ferent circumKernel stances. columnist The sophomore guard’s decision to transfer to Georgia State can’t be shocking to UK fans. His play was anything but consistent this season, and the arrival of 6-foot-5 point guard Andrew Harrison in the fall would have greatly diminished his playing time. Harrow cited the ailing health of his father, and there’s no reason to believe that isn’t a genuine concern. He returned home in November to attend to a family issue, so we’ve seen that side of him.

opportunity to play a lot of minutes and take care of his family in the process. There are other factors at play, though, that make this move the best for all involved. First, his draft stock can’t improve if he stays. If he wants to support his family by playing basketball, he has to actually play basketball. Playing 10 minutes per game next season isn’t exactly a ringing endorsement to NBA general managers. Also, Calipari has to worry about scholarships. If freshmen Alex Poythress, Archie Goodwin and Willie Cauley-Stein return next season, this year’s thin bench will reverse into Calipari’s best asset. With seven or eight recruits on the way, there is a roster logjam. An 11-man rotation is entirely possible, and all could be potential NBA Draft picks. That isn’t exactly the easiest way to showcase the skills of your backup point guard. The fan reception to Harrow this season was mixed. Fans saw flashes of See SCHUH on page 2

HARROW Continued from page 1 of absence to attend to family matters, Harrow returned to the team, starting 24 games and averaging 9.9 points, 2.8 assists and 2.8 rebounds in his only season as an active UK player. “I got better there,” Harrow said to the AJC of his two years in Lexington. “I built some relationships there. I know next year we would have been really good. It was

as he continues his basketball career and his pursuit of a college degree.” A tearful Harrow took the blame two weeks ago for UK’s loss to Robert Morris in round one of the National Invitational Tournament. After the game he stated his intention to return for his junior season at UK, but as his father’s health worsened he decided to transfer closer to home. Andrew Harrison, the topranked point guard in the Class of 2013, is expected to take over point guard duties for the Cats’ 2013-14 season.

er’s 54. Whereas Walker was the only real defensive post presence last year, now Stallworth serves as an accomplished accomplice. Stallworth was relegated to the bench with foul trouble for most of the Delaware game, scoring just four points in 13 minutes, but she logged a double-double in the first round against Navy (18 points, 11 rebounds) and chipped in 14 points against Dayton in the second round.

The Cats will likely need big games from both of these players and large contributions from several more — expect A’dia Mathies to fight hard for a trip to the Final Four in her last season. With O’Neill and Stallworth on the floor, UK is a different team than it was a year ago. Their presence in the rematch just might break up the parallels between last year’s game and this one.

Redford in ‘Captain America’ sequel LOS ANGELES — Though Robert Redford may be the very platonic ideal of a movie star — a matinee idol from films such as “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “The Sting,” “The Way We Were,” “The Electric Horseman” and “Out of Africa” — he has of late been involved with smaller-scale, socially conscious dramas. So many were surprised last week by the news that Redford would be appearing in the Marvel Studios comic-book action sequel “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” as a senior leader in the secret government agency of S.H.I.E.L.D. “I’m doing this film because it’s different. It’s a new thing for me,” Redford explained during a Q&A as part of the L.A. Times Indie Focus Screening Series this week. The Academy Award winner was appearing at his own Sundance Sunset Cinema in support of his latest effort as director, producer and star, “The Company You Keep.” A thriller about former ‘60s radicals forced to confront their pasts in the present day, “Company” also stars Shia LaBeouf, Brit Marling, Susan Sarandon and Julie Christie.

Though the 76-year-old Redford has not previously appeared in a contemporary superhero/comic-book movie like “Captain America,” he added: “I think these films are really powerful. I think they’re great. This is the kind of film I would have loved to see as a kid.” Star Chris Evans will reprise his title role from “Captain America: The First Avenger” in the sequel, which will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who also wrote the first film. “I like the idea of stepping into new territory,” Redford added. “I’m excited by it. I also think it’s a good bunch of people who really know what they’re doing.” The role is part of a busy year for Redford. Besides the opening of “The Company You Keep” on April 5, Redford will also appear in J.C. Chandor’s “All Is Lost” later this year. The follow-up to Chandor’s Oscar-nominated “Margin Call,” the film is a physically demanding tale of survival at sea in which Redford is reportedly the only character on screen.

Regardless of your position, the reality is Harrow will no longer be in the mix next season, for better or worse. He can move on and continue his college career, with his family close by. And UK will move on, too, still in a better position than most. Ultimately, Calipari’s streak of true one-and-done point guards will probably continue next season, with Harrow in the rear-view mirror.

Loose media lips can sink real ships On March 27 the ABC Nightly News broadcast information concerning the new head of the CIA clandestine unit. ABC gave the gender of the person, age range and a city where the person served overseas. Although this information can be acquired by foreign intelligence agencies, we should not be helping them identify our intelligence personnel. During World War II we safeguarded information which could have benefited the enemy and jeopardized the well-being of our military and civilian government personnel. We operated on a “need to know basis.” A phrase describing the secretiveness of information was “loose lips sink ships.” Since World War II the media has had increasing access to our military planning and operations in the cause of transparency and in compliance with the Freedom of Information Act, and government agencies have been too willing to provide information to reporters and others. The media does not seem able or inclined to refrain from disclosing sensitive information which could hurt this country. It seems all they care about is the “scoop.” Our federal government agencies and the media have to do a better job of not disclosing information which could place people and operations in harm’s way.

Time to migrate from politics into policy reform Any of the immigration reform plans, including Sen. Rand Paul’s plan, do not attack the main issues. Before we decide what we are going to do with the people who are here illegally, we must find solutions to stop illegal immigration. Comprehensive reforms do not work. The 1986 immigration reform failed, and after 25 years the number of illegals increased, the border is not secure and employers keep hiring illegals. We’re not stopping illegal immigration legalizing them, we’re stopping illegal immigration preventing them from coming into America. We must bring justice and consistency to our immigration processes. Is justice rewarding illegal activity with path to citizenship? Sen. Rand Paul spoke Wednesday about his filibuster in the drones deal, and I think he did a good job, but he is missing a point: right now drunk illegal alien drivers kill 4,700 Americans a year, more than the drones, and he is planning to reward them.

He stated the ones with criminal records will be deported. We don’t need a reform to do it, we do have laws and processes already to deport criminals, but we do not enforce those laws. Instead they free them in our streets again and again, or if they get deported, they just come back. Sen. Paul, as a Republican, believes in free enterprise and small government. But he is planning to create more regulations to force people who failed to comply with our laws and processes into American society, giving them legality and rewarding their unlawful conduct with a path to citizenship. Sen. Paul compromised to work in costs and deficit reduction, but illegal aliens cost Kentucky $280 million a year and illegal aliens’ tax revenue is only 17.4 million a year. So, is really this a good deal? Immigration is about selection, the nation should be able to decide who do we want here, how many and when, we should not just take

the ones who forced their way into our territory. Immigrants are those who follow the rules and processes. Citizenship must be something we achieve through an honorable process, not through fraud. Our immigration system works; over a million legal immigrants become American citizens every year, and we are receiving more legal immigrants than we are creating jobs. So why we should also add a legalization to those who chose to break the laws and come anyway? Serious immigration reform should start with four points: real border security, a mandatory and reliable employment verification system, a solution to the anchor babies and enforcement through attrition. After we test and we are sure the new system works, we will work in what are we going to do with the illegals. After all, immigration is about us, not them. Letter by Luis B. Pozzolo.

The one-woman show, “Bag of Bits,” staring Debra Faulk also known as DD Rainbow, was a ride through some of the most pivotal frightening, painful and joyous moments of Faulk’s life. Faulk produced the show as her thesis project for her master’s program. She was once a UK theater student and brought the show to UK’s Little Black Box Theatre. “I felt that it was extremely successful,” Faulk said after her Friday night performance. “Most importantly, I had my professors here; the main three that started me on this journey.” Those professors were Robert Haven, Nancy Jones and Herman Daniel Ferrell III. Faulk took the audience back with her through the

decision she faced of whether to write a paper for her graduate class, or book a comedy show for extra income. She also walked the audience through the gripping and risky moments during the weekend she went to rescue her father who had been put in a home. And she let the audience in on her thoughts and confusion when she had to learn what dementia and prostate cancer would mean for her father’s life. Ultimately, Faulk used comedy to make light of herself and the moments that have shaped who she is. “I loved how real she was with telling the story,” theater freshman Alexis Slocum said. “She showed the beauty that has come from these trials.” Faulk endured many trials growing up in Lexington, and during her performance she said she has

learned to “turn poison into medicine and negativity into positivity.” A retired social worker from Georgetown, Jane Gibbs said she read about Faulk’s story and really wanted to see her show. “She struck a nerve (with me) because she obviously had the same family issues that I’ve worked a lifetime trying to improve (in) family and teenager’s lives,” Gibbs said. In her storytelling, Faulk let everyone in on some of the “country style” lessons she learned from her father and mother growing up. In a scene from when she was a little girl, Faulk animatedly illustrated one of the biggest lessons she said she has learned: “Nobody does it alone.” In some of her closing remarks, Faulk said, “I came back home to tell everyone your prayers and thoughts, I remember.”

Men’s tennis wins 2 Wins come over SEC foes; women lose to same teams


Freshman Beck Pennington takes a backhand in a 2-6, 6-2, 7-6 singles win during the match vs. Alabama on Friday. After losing two straight for just the second time all season, the No. 8 UK men’s tennis bounced back with wins over Alabama and Auburn. In Friday’s match the Cats swept the Tide, 7-0. “It feels good to win this match and protect home court,” UK head coach Cedric Kauffmann said. UK won the doubles point to get out to an early 1-0 lead and never looked back. Freshman Kevin Lai picked up his 10th singles win of the year with an 6-3, 6-1 win. Sopho-

BASEBALL Continued from page 1 to learn more about the health of both players Monday. UK needed extra innings to edge the Bulldogs, 3-2, in Friday’s series opener after junior closer Trevor Gott was unable to keep a lead in the ninth inning. Junior catcher Micheal Thomas was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the home half of the 10th to give UK the seldom seen walk-off walk. Georgia (10-19, 1-8 SEC) battled back Saturday and held on to claim a 7-6 win despite a late UK comeback. The Bulldogs took a 7-3 lead into the bottom of the eighth when the Cats rallied to score three runs and make it a one-run ball game. Junior second baseman J.T. Riddle looked to have tied the game in the bottom of the ninth but his deep fly ball smacked the highest section of the right-field wall. One foot to the left and he would have had his second home run of the season and tied the game. The Cats begin a fourgame road trip Tuesday when they head down I-64 to meet No. 10 Louisville at Jim Patterson Stadium. First pitch is set for 6 p.m.

more Tom Jomby defeated Becker O’Shaughnessey in straight sets. In Sunday’s match the Cats went up against the Tigers of Auburn, winning, 41, despite losing the doubles point. Senior Anthony Rossi picked up his 100th career victory as a UK player with his 6-3, 6-2 win over Andreas Mies for his second win of the weekend over a ranked opponent. Jomby also won his second match of the weekend defeating Daniel Cochrane, 6-4,

6-4. “I think our guys picked up a lot of confidence this weekend,” Kauffmann said, “and I hope it carries into the rest of the SEC season.” The Cats will next host Ohio State and Murray State in a midweek double-header on Wednesday. The women’s team hit the road hoping to come back from two straight losses last weekend; however, the Cats came up short against No. 8 Alabama and No. 22 Auburn. Freshman Nadia Ravita knocked off Mary Anne Macfarlane in singles for the Cats’ lone point as they went down 6-1. After losing at Alabama, the Cats traveled a short distance to face off with Auburn. The Cats dropped the doubles for the fourth straight match which in turn led to their season-high fourth straight loss, losing 4-0. The Cats will next come home for a match against SEC foe Vanderbilt on Friday. The match is scheduled to begin at noon. STAFF REPORT

Wildcat Textbooks, the bookstore at South Limestone and Prall streets, closed at the end of February. Lack of parking and the store’s location contributed to the reasons the store closed, according to Davis Wade, the store’s textbook manager. There was not a main parking lot for the store, which made it inconvenient for students who were buying or selling back their textbooks. “In so many ways our location was good, but it didn’t give us an advantage over Kennedy’s or the UK bookstore,” Wade said. “It was

much easier to go to Kennedy’s where you had a place to park.” Wade said even when the business was doing great the store wasn’t selling or buying back many books due to the inconvenience. “The first week of school we were always slammed, but after that we only had people coming in to get a pencil or a blue book in between classes,” Wade said. Vice President of Kennedy Bookstore Inc. Carol Behr said she thought the closing was due in large part to the Internet, as well as the maintenance problems with the building. “It wasn’t a very pleasant place to be operating a store,”

Behr said. Behr said the store opened in 2006, but as the Internet became more popular the bookstore industry as a whole continuously lost business and Wildcat’s slogan of “cheapest prices on campus” was eventually overruled. There were two full-time employees at Wildcat as well as a few student employees. Behr said she was able to offer each one of them a job at Kennedy’s. Wade said there are many differences between his job at Wildcat and his current position at Kennedy’s. “There are just so many more people coming into Kennedy’s,” Wade said.
