UK hockey (1-3-0) takes on Indiana University of Pennsylvania (0-1-0) in a pair of games Friday and Saturday. IUP played in its season opener over the weekend against Penn State University at Altoona. The Crimson Hawks were down 2-0 at the end of the first period and battled their way back to a 4-4 tie against the Nittany Lions to end the second period. Penn State-Altoona netted the gamewinner halfway through the third. Sophomore goaltender Zach Sheriko stopped 35 of 39 Crimson Hawks shots to help his team to victory. IUP faces future UK opponents in University of Toledo, University of Akron, University of Cincinnati and West Virginia University later in the season. The Cats are led by junior forward Cam Mohler and senior forward Ryan Thomas, who each have three points a

piece. Mohler also leads the team with two goals, along with fellow junior forwards Andrew Baron and Corey Kopach, and senior defenseman Jeremy Schmidt. Schmidt leads the team in penalty minutes with twenty-two minutes served. UK split a pair of games last weekend against University of Louisville. “The effort wasn’t there on Saturday. We didn’t apply our systems. That’s something that needs to happen,” said senior goaltender Aaron Tenfelde of the Cats’ last game. He added that the team also let the officiating get into their heads during the game. The Cats spent much of the second period of the second Louisville game in the penalty box, something they are hoping to keep out of in future games. “We need to play hard from the start instead of waiting until something makes us mad to start playing hockey,” Baron said. After putting a full game together in the 3-2 loss versus Division 1 Indiana

University on Sept. 30, the team is anxious to do it again and pull off the victory. A five minute lapse in the third against Louisville allowed the Cardinals to net three goals in the Cats 6-3 win last Friday. UK is hungry to put two full games together and have a winning weekend. “God help whoever we have to play next. Nothing will stand in our way,” Tenfelde said. Poster model Kate Rorrer will be at the game Friday to sign posters. Posters are $3 with $7 admission to the game. The first 100 fans will receive a free signed poster.

A center of history

Campus hub remembers 75 years WILL WRIGHT wwright@kykernel

In the 75 years of the UK Student Center’s existence, rock stars, politicians and world leaders have visited, performed, lectured and been thrown out of the historic building. The Student Center has survived 13 presidents and multiple wars. It has been a popular venue for pop-culture icons and a hub for student activism. “If these walls could speak they’d tell you stories you wouldn’t believe,” said John Herbst, director of the Student Center and an employee of the Student Center for 39 years. The origins of the Student Center stretch back to before World War II. In October of 1931, the UK Chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Honorary met with UK President Frank L. McVey with the request to build a Student Union Building so students could have a place to call their own. Four years after the original meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the plan. In 1938, the Student Union Building was officially opened for a total cost of $277,000 ($4.53/square foot). To give some perspective, routine maintenance and repair, which Herbst defined in a previous interview with the Kernel as any repair costing less than $10,000, cost UK about $179,000 in the last fiscal year. The Student Center is largely a student-led creation. According to a pamphlet from the Student Center’s 60th anniversary, the original funds to construct the build-

Even the iron railings in the Great Hall, the area below the staircase leading to the Grand Ballroom, were created by students. In the 1940s, soldiers would return home from World War II to see concerts in the Grand Ballroom featuring popular artists like legendary jazz trumpeteer Louis Armstrong and orchestra jazz musician Barney Rapp. Currently, the Student Center is home to a number of restaurants, a student run radio station, an art gallery and two theaters with state-ofthe-art media technology. In the old building, large iron doors opened from the ballroom to a balcony on the far side of the ball-

room. “This was huge room for 1938,” Herbst said. The room was so big, windows in the Great Hall were opened to cool the non-air-conditioned venue. Political and cultural leaders like President Gerald Ford, President John F. Kennedy, Vice President Al Gore, ex-heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali and filmmaker Spike Lee have also visited the Student Center. Musicians such as Bob Dylan, R.E.M., Jimmy Buffet, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, James Taylor and Johnny Cash played in the student center from the 1960s through the

Camper count breaks record www.kykernel.com ANNIE HALLIWELL news@kykernel

If there is one sign of UK basketball fans’ devotion, it is the campout for Big Blue Madness tickets in front of Memorial Coliseum. As of 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, the tent count stood at 755. This count is larger than last year’s, which totaled 595, according to UK Athletics. Tickets will become available at 7 a.m. on Saturday, and will be distributed at the Memorial Coliseum ticket window. Tickets are free, but there is a limit of four tickets per control card. Four control cards are allowed to a tent. Campers are expected to keep the sidewalks and other walkways clear for the safety of pedestrians, according to UK Athletics. The campers have been asked to leave their vehicles in the parking lot off Alumni Drive. The larger number of attendants has not had much of an effect on the number of parking violations, said Chrissie Balding Tune, spokeswoman for UK Parking and Transportation Services. “We have issued some citations for parking in E lots near the ticket line; however, the number is consistent with previous years. The majority of fans appear to be following our parking guidelines and relocating their vehicles after unloading,” she said.

Freshman guard Dominique Hawkins signs autographs for fans camping out for Big Blue Madness tickets Thursday. At noon on Thursday, the tents ringed Memorial Coliseum and lined Avenue of Champions from the University Bookstore Parking lot to the Singletary Center. Campers that have not yet set up tents are not likely to receive tickets to the event, according to UK Athletics. The location and popularity of the campout has caused an uptick in business on the corner of Avenue of Champions and Rose Street, said Joe Cooper, a member of the delivery staff at Coffea. “They’ve camped right by us … We stay pretty hoppin’ when

they’re around,” he said. “We’re having a lot more business right now.” Zach Boehnke, shift supervisor at Qdoba, said his business has consistent sales all year, but has been steadier between rushes during Big Blue Madness. Boehnke mentioned that the parking lot outside Qdoba has seen some non-customer use, but since most of the new vehicles have been dropping people or gear off, they have not been too disruptive. Tickets will also be available online at ukathletics.com and ticketmaster.com for a minimal service fee. Big Blue Madness will take place at 7:30 p.m on Oct. 18 at Rupp Arena.


Cats’ chance at road win is slim

Quarterback play With UK starting a giant question mark at quarterback on Saturday, it can’t help the Cats that University of South Carolina senior starting quarterback Connor Shaw won’t miss the game after all. After Shaw suffered a shoulder injury against University of Central Florida last week, head coach Steve Spurrier said the quarterback would miss two to three weeks. Days later, Shaw was tossing 55-yard pass-

es on the practice field. (So much for that diagnosis, Head Ball Coach.) In his last two games against UK, Shaw has amassed 459 passing yards and six touchdowns through the air, and 118 yards on the ground. Thus far this season, Shaw is 49-of-76 passing for 665 yards and six touchdowns, and has rushed for 232 yards. Shaw brings stability to the Gamecocks’ offense that UK can only dream of right now.

bered those in red. Now, after a three game home stand, this young team will feel the intensity of a sellout SEC crowd rooting against them. And after a subpar week of practice that had UK head coach Mark Stoops on the verge of spontaneous combustion, confidence in a potential upset is so low it’s subterranean. “This is the most frustrated I’ve been, probably, because we’re right in the middle of a tough stretch and we’re getting ready to play a tough game on the road in a hostile environment and with that (losing) attitude, we’re going to get rolled,” Stoops said after Wednesday’s practice. “And I believe that happened the last time we went down

UK volleyball (10-3, 2-0 SEC) will attempt to remain undefeated in SEC play when they take on the University of Mississippi (10-5, 0-2 SEC) on Friday and the University of Tennessee (8-7, 0-1 SEC) on Sunday.

Randle adds new toughness to UK timeout features

NICK GRAY ngray@kykernel.com

UK head coach John Calipari talked repetitively last year about his team’s need for toughness, as they never found their groove and slid to the NIT. Calipari’s comparison of freshman forward Julius Randle to a former UK star suggests his team may have found the toughness it was looking for. “He wants to impress me but he’s quiet about it. He’s different now,” Calipari said. “Michael Kidd-Gilchrist got drafted No. 2 on that skill. I don’t want to say he’s better than Michael. (Julius) is his own guy. He’s nimble and he’s tough.” “And I tell the guys, two years ago, Michael dragged us to that level as a team,” Calipari continued. “And that’s what I’m asking Julius to do. Just do that right there and drag us. We’ll help you with all the other stuff. You don’t lose that.” Some of Randle’s new teammates agree. “Going against him every day, it’s truly a battle for every step you take,” freshman forward Marcus Lee said.

“In the summer when we were playing pickup, (Alex Poythress) and Julius would go back and forth like two gorillas,” said sophomore center Willie Cauley-Stein. “Last year, Coach Cal said we had one Donkey Kong. Now, we got two (Donkey Kongs). You can play both of them at the same time; how are you going to stop that?” “He (Randle) can shoot and pass, so that’s really hard to guard and defend him because you never really know what he’s going to do,“ freshman center Dakari Johnson said. “And he’s strong too, so it’s a pretty tough matchup to go against.” The 6-foot-9, 250-pound forward from Dallas, Texas scored 32.5 points and 22.5 rebounds per game as a senior with Prestonwood Christian High School, winning his third state championship in four years. His high school accolades also include the coMVP award at the Jordan Brand Classic. Randle posted 14.2 points per game and 6.6 rebounds per game with the United States U18 team at the FIBA Championships last June. The second-ranked player in the Class of 2014 by Rivals, Randle cut his list to six schools (UK, N.C. State, Florida, Texas,

According to a UKPD news release, the report includes statistics from the past three years regarding crimes reported at various locations on and surrounding UK’s campus. The report is legally required to be released under both federal law (The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, referred to as the Clery Act) and state law (Kentucky Postsecondary Education Campus Security Act of 2000, referred to as the Minger Act). 8 | weekend timeout | 10.04.13

Randle enrolled at UK on June 6, and he and Poythress played against each other throughout the summer in workouts that several players called the most competitive battle of summer workouts. Poythress said Randle has the ability to be a multi-faceted offensive player. “He’s a big boy, that’s what he is. He’s a big, physical guy who gets to the rim when he

wants to. He can still shoot the mid-range (shot), step out to three (point line),” Poythress said. “It’s going to be hard for somebody to guard him through the year.” UK has a Born: Nov. 29, 1994 recent history of Height: 6 feet 9 producing NBA inches big men in the Calipari era, beWeight: 250 pounds Hometown: Dallas, Texas ginning with Patrick PatterClass: Freshman son and continPosition: Forward uing with DeMarcus High school: Cousins, Josh Prestonwood Christian Harrellson, TerAAU team: Texas Titans rance Jones, Anthony Davis and Nerlens Noel.

Police fatally shoot woman after car chase near capitol

timeout features

RICHARD A. SERRANO and RICHARD SIMON Tribune Washington Bureau MCT

WASHINGTON — A frantic police chase through the heart of Washington, from the White House to Capitol Hill down historic Pennsylvania Avenue, ended Thursday with a woman shot to death, two law enforcement officers injured and the Capitol complex under emergency lockdown. More than a dozen police shots rang out on two sides of Capitol Hill, sending many legislators, staffers and tourists running for cover, with some ducking down on the lawns and sidewalks. Dozens of police cars and officers converged on the female driver on the Senate side of Capitol Hill. A 1-yearold child was rescued from the car and taken to a nearby hospital. The incident took place in a city already frayed over the government shutdown and a shooting rampage two weeks ago at the Washington Navy Yard that left 13 people dead. The House of Representatives had just finished a series of votes and was clearing out when shots rang out outside. Many members turned around and locked themselves with their aides in nearby offices. On the Senate side, Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada was about to give a cable television interview when he too locked himself inside his office with the reporter and camera crew. “Gunshots have been reported on Capitol Hill requiring staff in all Senate office buildings to immediately shelter in place,” said a hurried email sent out by the Capitol Police. “Close, lock and stay away from external doors and windows. Take annunciators, emergency supply kits and escape hoods; and move to your office’s assigned shelterin-place location or the innermost part of the office away from external doors or windows.” The chase lasted three minutes and covered two miles along some of the most heavily policed streets in the United States. Many of the federal officers who gave chase were working without pay because of

the shutdown. It began about 2:12 p.m. EDT at the White House, where the driver of the car allegedly tried to breach the barricades at an outer checkpoint on the northeast side of the presidential mansion. With President Barack Obama working inside, the black sedan struck one of the Secret Service agents as it sped away, police said. A few minutes later, outside the western front of the Capitol, television video showed a half-dozen officers firing a volley of shots at the car, which had Connecticut license plates. The car nevertheless was able to back away, ramming a cruiser, and fleeing around a traffic circle up the hill on Constitution Avenue with multiple police cars giving chase. On top of the Hill, more police gunfire erupted, and the driver was fatally shot between First and Second streets. A Capitol Police officer was injured when his car struck a barricade. Police said a second law enforcement officer also was injured. The Hartford Courant, citing a source

with knowledge of the investigation, identified the driver of the car as Miriam Carey, 34, a dental hygienist from Stamford, Conn. The Courant said she appeared to have lived most of her adult life in Brooklyn, N.Y. Two years ago she formed a homebased business, Experienced Dental Placements, which appeared to operate as a temporary employment firm, the paper said. Police gave no motive for the woman’s behavior, but they stressed repeatedly that they believed it to be an isolated incident and that there was no known link to terrorist groups. The chase ended just outside the Hart Office Building and Sen. Barbara Boxer’s window. The California Democrat had just returned after a party caucus lunch and was preparing to brief her staff on the government shutdown when she said she “heard these incredibly loud noises outside the window.” “And we looked at each other because

we’ve never heard sounds like this, just in rapid succession: boom, boom, boom, boom. About five or six,” she told reporters. “And then we knew something terrible had happened.” Boxer and several aides ran from the window to a stairwell, then into a windowless conference room. “It’s just extremely unnerving. We didn’t know what was going to happen next,” Boxer said. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was on the House floor preparing to speak about the government shutdown when the presiding officer gaveled the chamber into recess without explanation. At first, Schiff said, he thought it was an effort to stop debate. But he and other lawmakers soon learned by word of mouth and email messages about the gunshots fired outside. They remained in the chamber or in their party’s cloakrooms for about a half hour until police declared an all-clear.
