Madness brings out stars Rupp filled with past phenoms, current players for first public practice By Nick Gray

The atmosphere was thick with fog, lights and fireworks. Between appearances from NBA players and UK recruits and their families, fans rallied and cheered Friday night at this year’s Big Blue Madness in Rupp Arena. More than 24,000 fans came out to see the first of-

ficial introduction of the men’s and women’s basketball teams. The event, which typically attracts multiple recruits for the following season, cost more than $400,000 on production, said UK Athletics spokesman John Hayden. In the two hours, both the men’s team scrimmaged for 20 minutes while UK Hoops scrimmaged for 10 minutes.

The event began with UK Hoops head coach Matthew Mitchell dancing to James Brown’s “Get Up Offa That Thing,” while sporting a wig and an 80s costume. After UK Hoops players introductions and a scrimmage, UK head coach John Calipari took the stage. “We are the place to help you achieve your dreams,” he said. “We don’t

just play college basketball; we are college basketball.” Calipari described what makes a good player in the UK program and discussed the future of UK basketball. “Our biggest opponent? Ourselves,” he said. “At Kentucky, we are competing against ourselves every day. We can’t let the strain and spotlight of this program affect you.”

UK Swing Dance offers free classes

Former Cats return to Rupp for NBA exhibition game

Supervisor hopes to spread passion for great American pastime

Anthony Davis and the Pelicans defeat John Wall’s Wizards

By Majorie Kirk

For ten years, Barker Hall has housed swing dancelessons at noon and dances at 7 p.m. most Saturdays for the UK Swing Dance Club. Aaron Mabson has been involved with the club for five years as the club’s supervisor, coordinator and dance teacher. His hope for the club is that people will see swing

dancing as the social hangout it once was in America. “It’s nice to learn something different, and swing dancing is always one of those things that people think, ‘Hey wow, it seems so cool. I’d like to try that one day,’ and all we have to say is come to our club, we have lessons — they’re free.” UK’s Swing Dance Club hopes to bring back a

By Boyd C.M. Hayes

A day after celebrating the beginning of college basketball season at Big Blue Madness, Cats fans were given a chance to celebrate former UK stars in a NBA preseason matchup between the New Orleans Pel-

icans and the Washington Wizards on Saturday at Rupp Arena. John Wall’s Wizards faced off against Anthony Davis’ Pelicans, and New Orleans emerged victorious, 93-89. The game played out in front of 14,980 fans in Wall’s and Davis’ former home arena.

The defeat was Wall's first in Rupp Arena. “It was my first time losing on that court, so that doesn't feel great,” Wall said. “But it was just exciting to get out there and see those fans and Big Blue Nation and have an opportunity to see (Big Blue Madness).” Davis also appreciated the opportunity to return to Lexington. “I would love to come back here and play again,”

he said. “This state and this school did a lot for us, so to come back and sign autographs and play a game in front of them means a lot to us and them. I would love to come back next year or the year after.” In a game full of lead changes, Wall registered a double-double with 16 points and 11 assists, while Davis also chalked up 16 points, adding four See NBA on page 2

opinions editorial

Dean addresses Art Museum concerns Dean Michael Tick of the College of Fine Arts and communications director Jennifer Sciantarelli wrote the fellowing article in response to the Kernel’s Oct. 1 editorial, headlined “UK students deserve a better art museum,” in which the Kernel pushed for a makeover of the current museum. The editorial states “… greater funding from the university, or a new location, will be required to make the art school flourish.” Although the Art Museum and the School of Art and Visual Studies are both assigned to the College of Fine Arts, the Art Museum is a “freestanding” auxiliary enterprise and the School of Art and Visual Studies is a degree granting academic unit. Both units are chaired by their own director; in the case of the School of Art and Visual Studies, the faculty and staff are responsible for the teaching, research and service missions. The director and staff of the Art Museum at UK work with an advisory board and two support groups: the Collectors and the Docents. The Art Museum is accredited through the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) and that organization’s standards require a separation of curatorial mission and control from the academic Art unit.

The School of Art and Visual Studies regularly partners with the Museum; it often presents its faculty exhibition in the Museum, encourages students to intern with the Museum and organizes several class tours each semester; however, the School and the Museum maintain separate missions, budgets and leadership, as well as separate facilities. Two years ago, the Board of Trustees approved funds for the purchase and renovation of the University Lofts Building, the new home of the School, currently housed in the Reynolds Building No. 1. Several weeks ago, the President and the Board of Trustees approved additional funding for the renovation, which brings the total initiative to nearly $22 million. As a result of this action, the School of Art and Visual Studies will shortly move into a state-of-the-art facility. The editorial mentions the Speed Art Museum in Louisville as a model institution. Indeed, the Speed is a treasured Kentucky cultural landmark and a vital resource to University of Louisville students, but it is a private museum located on the University’s Belknap campus. It is not owned or operated by the University of Louisville, in contrast to the Art Museum

at UK. The Art Museum engages its patrons through exhibitions, tours, outreach, professional development workshops, family programs and more. More than 1,000 UK students visit the Museum’s exhibitions through class tours, 1,200 students attend the May Photography Lecture series each year and many others explore the exhibitions and sculpture garden individually. The Museum is the only venue in the region to see works of art from internationally recognized artists including Rembrandt, Durer, Goya, Picasso, Warhol and others. Students have the opportunity to study these works first-hand without leaving campus. Additionally, admission to the Museum is free for UK faculty, staff and students. The Art Museum at UK strives to be a visual art and education resource for UK students as well as the community at-large. The Museum is currently in the middle of a new director search, led by Deans Tick and Mary John O’Hair, and a committee of distinguished arts leaders, both on and off campus. The Museum is also developing a student advisory board to address the needs of the student body. To serve on the student advisory board, students can call 859-257-6199.

College Scholarship Day should cater to studious Friday, hundreds of students attended classes and meetings as planned, and tended to business before they began relaxing for the weekend. Hundreds of others traveled to Keeneland for College Scholarship Day. While the Kernel appreciates Keeneland’s efforts to help students pay their college tuition, it seems counterintuitive to hold the event on a Friday, when a large number of students have classes scheduled. We are not implying that all students who went to Keeneland on Friday are irresponsible and undeserving of scholarships. Some students probably expended one of their allowed absences to be able to attend. And the lucky ones don’t have class on Friday, period. That being said, it seems unfair that some students got to visit Keeneland with the chance to win money to put toward their college careers, while many were forced to stay behind for fear of jeopardizing their grades. Aren’t the students who care enough to show up to all their classes the ones that should be rewarded with scholarships? The Kernel understands the fall meet is a short four weeks. Keeneland is host to many important events, such as Make-A-Wish Day, and fitting them all in such a short period is surely no easy task. Still, it would be nice if more of an effort were put forth to give equal opportunity to all students to enjoy one of Kentucky’s finest race tracks and have a chance at winning a scholarship. Keeneland is a beautiful venue that every Kentuckian should visit in their lifetime. The

scenery in the fall is something to behold, as well as the thoroughbreds that our state is known for. But if Keeneland is going to promote academics, then it should open its doors on College Scholarship Day at a time more convenient for the students working hardest to succeed scholastically. Email

Cartoonists needed The Kernel is looking for a cartoonist to draw pieces for the opinions page on a regular basis. Those who have an interest in campus and local issues will be given special attention, although cartoonists of all interests will be considered.

Tally Cats aim to up student involvement on campus Student government group awards good attendance with iPads, iPods, TVs and other prizes By Jordan Mason

Bright yellow shirts are a staple at many campus events throughout the year. Sporting the shirts are the Tally Cats, a group tasked with ramping up student involvement at UK. At every event they attend, the group scans student IDs for points. At the end of the semester those

points add up to prizes, such as iPads, iPods and TVs. Tally Cats was created in 2009 by a student who wanted others to get involved more on campus, and was picked up by the Student Government, said Karah Brown, Tally Cats coordinator. Recently, Tally Cats has worked with the Violence and Intervention and Prevention Center (VIP), Team

Wildcat, the Alumni Association, Student Activities Board and UK Athletics to encourage students to be involved on campus, Brown said. Being socially confident is important for someone interested in becoming a Tally Cat, Brown said. ”When looking for someone to be a Tally Cat we look for someone that is outgoing, gets excited about

events and promotes the events well,” Brown said. “We realize that you are going to get busy. There may be one week when you can only go to one event and the next week you could do four,” said Taylor Dick, assistant director of team relations. Tally Cats are required to attend two events, she added. Many of the Tally Cat members and supporters

learn about the group during K Week events. “I found out about Tally Cats during K Week because I kept seeing them at all the events,” UK freshman Hannah Rowe said. “I wanted to be a Tally Cat because they are constantly encouraging people to get involved, which I think is important for making this campus our home.” Dick hopes that the or-

ganization will continue to grow. “I would love for more people to know exactly what it is. Most people think that we are just a K Week event, but we are here all year round,” Dick said “As a junior now, I hope that I can come back in 20 years and see that Tally Cats is all over campus and be proud to say that I was a part of that.”

Miller, Wall and Davis were all present at Big Blue Madness on Friday. The former Cats looked on as this season’s UK team commenced its first intrasquad scrimmage of the season. Davis and Wall have high hopes for UK head coach John Calipari's team this season. “They’re going to be great if they play together

and share the ball and want to play for each other,” Davis said. “(They must) put their egos aside and realize that if everybody plays hard and plays together and they win, then everybody benefits. I’m pretty sure Coach Cal’s going to tell them that and stress that to them.” “I think they’re very exciting, especially with those two twins. I really like Julius Randle, and James Young can really score the ball,” Wall added. “If they all buy in, I think they have a great chance to win it.”

The scrimmage began with freshman center Dakari Johnson and sophomore forward Willie Cauley-Stein jumping for the tip-off, while a suspended video screen rotated more than 50 feet in the air above them. Highlights of the scrimmage include freshman for-

ward Julius Randle scoring 14 points and handling the basketball several times on fast break opportunities. “With these players, these fans and this coaching staff,” Calipari said at the end of his speech, “we will build on the greatest tradition in the history of college basketball.” UK Hoops beat writer Tyler Spanyer contributed to this article.

dance skills into practice. The club requires no prior knowledge of dance. Students and people of the community are welcome to come to the lessons to learn the dances in a relaxed setting. Mabson said the class

provides people with new social interactions while allowing people to exercise. “Everybody gets something different,” he said. “For me this was a helpful social experience.”

Through different programs, Stewart said they aim to empower students through sexual literacy and break the tension the topic often brings. In addition to this program, their Conception, Communication, Quickie and Sex Myths programs are intended to help people with

the complexities of sexual relationships. Stewart said the Sexperts have open discussions about sex and relationships throughout the school year in an effort to break sexual taboos and to debunk some of the negative lessons that may have been taught in early sex education.

rebounds and two blocks. Davis’ second block was made in the closing minutes of the game to preserve the Pelicans’ lead. “It was a great block by Anthony. It's nice if you can keep it inbounds,” Wall said. “Most guys block out of bounds, but he kept it inbounds.” The block was reminiscent of Davis’ game-saving swat against the University of North Carolina at UK on Dec. 3, 2011. Davis, however, said he wasn’t thinking about the past during the game. “You can't think about college. You got to think about the NBA and that game that we’re playing right then and there. I wasn’t out there thinking about what happened at North Carolina. That’s not what was going through my head," he said. "We still had to knock down free-throws, and we ended up turning the ball over after that, and we still had to come back and get another stop, so I was just focused on the game.” Though Davis’ second block may have had the biggest impact on the game, it was his first that elicited the largest crowd response. He got a hand on the ball as Wall was going up for a fast-break dunk, bringing the crowd to its feet. “I thought I was going to get a foul, but it didn't work,” Wall said. “I was trying to go off of one foot, but I was too tired. I didn't know he was going to come block it.” Another moment of excitement for the fans was

Cross country closes out regular season Women finish 15th at Pre-National Invitational

UK men’s and women’s cross country wrapped up the regular season at the Pre-National Invitational on Saturday in Terre Haute, Ind. with a third-place finish from senior Cally Macumber. The races were held on the campus of Indiana State University. Macumber continued her season of high finishes by placing third in the 6,000-meter run with a time of 20:12.15, just three seconds away from the first-place time of Boise State University junior Emma Bates, who ran the race in 20:09:09. “There’s pressure on your stars,” UK head coach Edrick Floreal said before the meet. “If they don’t do their absolute best, then their whole

team will be impacted.” UK seniors Allison Peare and Anna Bostrom placed in the top 100. Peare finished 66th with a time of 21:12.83. Bostrom came in 94th with a time of 21:24.20. Overall, the UK women’s team placed 15th. The women's field included nine 2012 All-Americans and six runners who missed becoming an All-American last year by less than a minute at the NCAA Championships. The meet hosted 340 athletes in the women’s 6,000-meter run. In the men’s race, senior Matt Hillenbrand ran a record best time on Saturday in the 8,000-meter run, clocking in at 24:24.48. Senior Adam Kahleifeh was the next best finish for

the Cats, placing 104th with a time of 24:38.13. Sophomore Zack Beavin also cracked the top 200 for the Cats, coming in at 25:05.65 with a 182nd place finish. The men’s team finished 35th overall in the event, where three of the nation's top four men's teams were running. The race featured 359 men in total. The Cats have closed out their regular season and will begin postseason play in two weeks at the SEC Championships in Gainesville, Fla. on Nov. 1. STAFF REPORT

Men’s soccer suffers loss after own goal Cats are outshot for 2nd time in 12 games

UK men's soccer fell 1-0 on the road to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte on Saturday. The deciding goal of the match was a UK own goal early in the second half. A scoreless game after 45 minutes, UNC Charlotte (55-3, 1-3-2 C-USA) created a scoring opportunity in the 47th minute, getting the ball into the UK goalie box down the middle of the field. As a UK defender attempted to clear the ball, he hit it into the back corner of his own goal, recording the only score on the night. The Cats (4-7-1, 1-2-1 CUSA) were outshot 16-7 in the game, the second time in 12 games UK has been outshot and the first time since

Sept. 5 against East Tennessee State University. Leading UK in shots taken was senior midfielder Brad Doliner with three shots, including one shot on goal. The only other UK player to record a shot on goal was freshman midfielder Kaelon Fox. UNC Charlotte’s leading shot-taker on the night was freshman midfielder Brandt Bronico, who took four shots, including two on goal, in 73 minutes on the pitch. UK was at an 8-1 cornerkicks disadvantage as well, the first time in 2013 the Cats haven't won the cornerkick battle. Despite the own goal, UK sophomore goalkeeper Callum Irving recorded a ca-

reer-high six saves on the night. UK junior defender Jaytoe Teh returned to the starting lineup since sustaining injury in a 0-0 draw with the University of South Carolina on Oct. 13. Joining Teh in the defense was senior Steven Perniovic, who won 8-of-11 contested headers on the night. He has now won 97of-122 headers in 2013. The Cats return to Lexington to play their next match against the University of Tulsa at 7 p.m. on Wednesday at the UK Soccer Complex. STAFF REPORT

Women’s soccer win streak comes to an end

The four-game winning streak for UK women’s soccer came to an end on Friday with a loss to the University of Florida. But the Cats bounced back on Sunday in Tuscaloosa, Ala. with 4-2 victory over the University of Alabama. Junior forward Arin Gilliland helped secure the win for the Cats over Alabama by scoring three goals in the first half. Gilliland earned her second career hattrick. She scored her previous hat-trick earlier this season against the University of Tennessee. Junior forward Stuart Pope also contributed to the Cats’ score total with a goal in the 85th minute. She added two assists during the match.

After Gilliland’s hat trick, the Crimson Tide attempted to stage a comeback in the second half, getting a goal from freshman midfielder Auburn Mercer in the 77th minute. The goal was Mercer’s first of the season and her career. Pope scored her 10th goal of the season. Pope and Gilliland now lead the team in goals with 10. Friday in Gainesville, Fla., the Gators scored the match’s first goal just before the 7th minute when sophomore midfielder Lauren Smith got the ball past UK senior goalkeeper Kayla King. The Gators would add another goal just before halftime when freshman mid-

fielder Liz Slattery fired a shot past King. It was Slattery’s second goal of the season. Smith added another goal in the 57th minute for Florida to secure the win. It was the third time this season King allowed three goals in one match. It was also the third time all season the Cats were held scoreless in a match. Florida outshot UK in the match with a 13-3 shot margin. The Cats were also outdone in cornerkick opportunities, with the 6-1 margin favoring Florida. UK is 0-9-1 all-time versus the Gators in Gainesville. STAFF REPORT
