Students can combine comfort with style timeout features

Whether you’re wearing an elbow patched sweater and colored skinny jeans or a peplum top and a statement necklace, you can always stay trendy but comfortable everywhere you go, especially to class. My personal favorite is an oversized sweater, leggings, riding boots JACQUELINE NIE and a statement necklace. I can stay warm Kernel through the wind tunnels columnist surrounding POT and I can stay cool hiking up the stairs to the third floor of White Hall. Communications junior Heather Coley loves peplum everything, leather accents, statement necklaces and jean jackets. But one trend is not popular with Coley. “Patterned leggings — I just don’t understand them,” she said. “There isn’t a whole lot you can wear them with and it just is not a classic look.” Personally, I’m all for spicing up an every day outfit of leggings and a sweater, but are patterned leggings too much?

sized sweaters and leggings are her favorite fashion trends. But her least favorite is wedged gym shoes. “I love a wedge heel, I’m always up for wearing one,” Hennard said. “But they’re already casual enough, they don’t need shoe laces.” Like Hennard, If I’m going to wear heels, they will be more girly than gym shoes. The local boutiques are definitely girly and trendy enough for me. Some are too trendy for what I’m looking for. Malls offer a good alternative, but when hunting for a specific outfit for an event, boutiques can give you an incredible outfit no one else will have. Coley said her style favors mall shopping. “I like going to the mall more because I like simple and classic things,” Coley said. “Boutiques can be trendier, and it’s just not my thing.” The local boutiques fit Hennard’s style. “Everything at the mall looks the same to me,” she said. “The local boutiques offer something different and fresh.” Even if you’re just wearing leggings and a sweater, you can still look trendy with simple additions like a necklace or a sock bun. The latest fashion trends enable you to dress for success, but still be comfortable.

Fashionably fit: Go beyond basic black JULIE GORDON Newsday (MCT)

OK, ladies. Step away from the black exercise pants. This spring, workout wear isn’t just functional — it’s taken a fashion-forward turn, with daring prints, intricate details and look-at-me shades — even in pants. Bold hues are huge, says Marissa Stephenson, fitness editor at Self magazine. Wearing a color on bottom can be intimidating, especially for ladies who prefer the slimming power of black. But, Stephenson says, it’s all about choosing the most forgiving shade and flattering cut. Her pick? A bright-blue capri that hits just below the knee. “The colors and patterns are so new and fresh I’m almost giddy,” says Karyn Riale, director of retail buying for The Shop @ Equinox, which sells its stylish wares in Woodbury, Great Neck, Roslyn and Manhattan, N.Y. With prints, anything goes, from hotpink leopard created by adidas by Stella McCartney, to bright tribal prints from Nike, to splatter-paint, florals and zigzags. “To see companies like Nike that are taking risks with patterns and colors, it

makes the experience more fun,” said celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, whose clients include Gwyneth Paltrow. For women who won’t stray from black, pops of color and detail add pizzazz, such as pants with a print waistband (lululemon athletica has several) or a bright stripe down the side. Perforated detailing on tops is also in, as are texturized prints, such as a black-on-black animal print, Stephenson says. A new workout wardrobe doesn’t just make you look good — it makes you feel good, too. Celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson says that taking care in what you put on can increase motivation. “Any time you’re making a conscious decision to do something, you’re connecting more to the experience,” says Anderson. One move to avoid? Buying constricting, suction-cup-style pieces in the hopes of looking thinner while hitting the gym. “If you’re doing a workout properly, these kinds of constricting fabrics can cut off your ability to perform well.” Better, she says, to simply “do your workout well.”

College on a budget entertainment, pop culture and fun

ANYSSA ROBERTS aroberts@kykernel.com

One of the hardest things to talk about as college students is money. Not because of the never-ending uncertainty of job prospects or even the cliché of the “broke college student.” It’s because of one word — budgeting. Difficult to do and sometimes impossible to stick to, a college budget can mean balancing drinks on “thirsty Thursday” with making the monthly loan payment and avoiding getting stuck in debt after graduate school. Jennifer Hunter, UK assistant extension professor of family financial management, said the concept of budgeting scares people, especially college students, because the idea of a budget can sometimes be overwhelming. “It’s also really difficult in the college students’ lifestyle to budget because there are so many unknown factors,” she said. For example, Hunter said students may have good intentions at the beginning of the week to eat at home and not go out, but then the week happens. ”It’s very hard to stick to my budget. I’ll go over it easily, so if I got to the store with my roommates I just don’t take any money with me so I wont spend it,” said junior human communications major Jasmine Lewis. Many students like Lewis have budgets but find ithem difficult to stick to. Freshman undeclared major Jillian Madden said organizing her finances is difficult, but she has her own system. “I prioritize what I want to get because it’s hard when you’re in college to go out and just go shopping. So you have to make sure you prioritize how often you go out,” she said. Madden is not the only student who has her own method of staying on the straight-and-narrow of responsible spending. Many UK students have ideas that work for them. But for those having trouble deciding between paying rent and paying for concert tickets, Hunter offers her advice on how to make a spending plan students can stick to.

UK professor offers advice for student budget planning

It’s called a spending plan, not a budget: “They are similar concepts, but a spending plan is … looking down at the next week or next month.” Spend a week writing down where you spend your money, Hunter said. “It will jump out at you and you’ll say ‘Oh wow, I really spent that much on food this week. Or I really spent that much on entertainment.’ And so those kind of things really jump off the page for you,” she said.

You’re not a doctor yet: “Unfortunately, expectations on income are not the same as reality,” Hunter said. “You need to live like a college student while you’re in college and not like the doctor, lawyer, nurse, teacher — whatever it is that you plan to be in the future.” Hunter said the toughest thing for students was to walk out of school expecting a $100,000 income, only with a starting income of $30,000 or $40,000 and debt to pay.

Needs over wants, of course: “That’s going to be different for different college students because some live on campus and their room and board is paid at the start of the semester,” Hunter said. “Looking at the food, maybe we can get by on a loaf of bread and a jar of PB as a need and a steak as the want.” Before you spend that student loan check: Some students are fortunate to receive a student loan check or a reimbursement check at the beginning of the year, but Hunter said for many of these students, that’s all they get. “They really have to stretch their money for the entire semester,” she said. For these students, making a spending plan is important. They need to include expenses for living, food and play until they receive their next payment, otherwise, they can find themselves in a tough situation.

Cats riding momentum into weekend’s meet

UK men and women’s swimming and diving will compete against the University of Indiana and the University of Tennessee in a tri-meet beginning Thursday in Bloomington, Ind. The Cats picked up three wins in Carbondale, Ill. last week against the University of Missouri and Southern Illinois University. UK swept the women’s meets while the men defeated Southern Illinois. The UK women will attempt to extend their winning streak to three, while the men will attempt to pick up their second and third victories of the season. The men’s team will be led by last week’s SEC Freshman Swimmer of the Week Brandon Flynn and seniors Erick Bruck, Will Heidler and Chris Lott. On the women’s side, the Cats will look for juniors Abby Myers and Christina Bechtel, and senior Diana Norkus to lead the Cats. The Cats will face Indiana University, a team who has started the year against highly

ranked competition. The Hoosiers are led by head coach Ray Looze, and although the Indiana men are off to a 0-4 start, they have faced four of the top-five teams in the country. The Indiana men and women are currently ranked ninth and tenth in the nation, respectively. The women are coming off a victory against the University of Michigan last week. The Tennessee men are rebounding after losing to the University of Louisville on Oct. 24, while the Volunteers women enter the tri-meet boasting an undefeated record. The Volunteers, led by head coach Matt Kredich, are currently ranked eighth in both the men and women’s College Swimming Coaches Association’s top 25. The tri-meet will begin with the diving competition at 1 p.m. and continue with the swimming events at 2 p.m. STAFF REPORT

Cats head to SEC tourney

UK cross country is headed to Gainesville, Fla. to participate in the SEC Championships, which will be held Nov. 1 at the Mark Bostick Golf Course. The University of Florida is hosting the SEC Championship for the fifth time in history. Last year, the University of Arkansas won the men’s SEC Championship. The Razorbacks have won 20 of the last 22 conference team titles. UK seniors Adam Kahleifeh and Matt Hillenbrand have been the UK men’s top runners all season. Matt Hillenbrand’s best 8,000-meter time ranks in as the 20th-fastest time in the SEC. Kahleifeh’s top performance came back during the regular season at the Bluegrass Invitational. Kahliefeh’s time is the 10thbest 8,000-meter performance in the SEC this year. The men’s team will need help from sophomore transfer Zack Beavin, and sophomore Mackay Wilson if they look to

knock Arkansas down this year in the SEC Championships. In the women’s race, The Gators come in as the defending SEC champs. UK senior Cally Macumber finished in first place at the SEC Championships with a winning time of 20:23.29. Coming into the SEC championships, the Cats are led by an experienced group of seniors in Macumber, Allison Peare and Anna Bostrom. “There’s pressure on your stars,” UK head coach Edrick Floreal said. “If they don’t do their absolute best, then their whole team will be impacted.” The men’s 8,000-meter run will begin at 9 a.m. and the women’s 6,000-meter run will follow around 10 a.m. “We are looking forward to the challenge, but we wont know how well we have done until we get to the meet,” Floreal said.

Men’s soccer looking for tournament berth timeout sports

In an attempt to secure a spot in the upcoming Conference USA Tournament, UK men’s soccer hosts Florida Atlantic University on Sunday at the UK Soccer Complex. The Cats (5-8-2, 2-3-2 Conference USA) control their own postseason destiny in this pivotal matchup against FAU, who also desperately need the conference victory. The Owls are two conference wins shy of clinching a spot in the Conference USA Tournament in Charlotte, N.C. with only two conference games remaining on its schedule. FAU (6-5-2, 1-5-1 Conference USA) has struggled in conference play this season and enters the match coming off a defeat against the University of North Carolina at Charlotte by a score of 6-0. FAU is led by 27th-year head coach Kos Donev and its leading goal scorer, junior forward Ryan Price. The Owls have been outscored 19-25 this season, a trend that the Cats hope continues on Sunday. The Cats will continue to rely on senior forward Brad Doliner and sophomore midfielder Isak Krogstad, who lead the team with five and four goals, respectively. UK sophomore goalkeeper Callum Irving is not only confident about his team’s

chances to clinch a tournament berth, but also the amount of postseason success the team can achieve. “After we clinch our spot in the playoffs, and once we get to Charlotte for the tournament, we have the ability to control how deep we go,” Irving said. Irving and the Cats will look to barricade the goal for a second consecutive match after shutting out Marshall University on Wednesday night by a score of 2-0. The match will be the first time the Cats have played at home since they were defeated by another Conference USA foe and Florida-based program, Florida International University in Lexington on Oct. 26. The match begins Sunday at 4 p.m. at the UK Soccer Complex.

Booker chooses UK

Devin Booker, the No. 18 overall player in the Class of 2014 by ESPN, has committed to UK. The five-star shooting guard from Moss Point High School in Moss Point, Miss., announced his decision at a press conference at his high school Thursday. Booker was in Lexington for the UK Alumni Game on Sept. 9, but also had official visits to Michigan State University on Sept. 6, the University of Michigan on Oct. 5 and the University of Missouri on Oct. 19, according to ESPN. Florida was also in

the running as a potential school for Booker. The 6-foot-5-inch, 185-pound guard averaged 29.7 points, seven rebounds and four assists per game in his junior year, according to MaxPreps. Booker is listed as the No. 3 overall shooting guard in the nation, according to ESPN, and joins five-star center Karl Towns Jr. and four-star guard Tyler Ulis for the Cats’ 2014 recruiting class.

Cats should coast

Even with Crowell, Alabama State will struggle Saturday

Closing the book on Isaiah When UK played at the University of Georgia in 2011, running back Isaiah Crowell had only two rushes for 11 yards before exiting the game with an ankle injury. That’s likely a large part of why the Cats could keep it close, losing 19-10. Since transferring to Alabama State University, Crowell has amassed 1,675 ALEX rushing yards and 27 FORKNER touchdowns. This season, he has four games with Kernel more than 125 rushing columnist yards this season and found the endzone four times against Alcorn State. When Mark Stoops was at Florida State University, he remembers how badly the staff wanted Crowell to commit to the Seminoles. And though he may be on a less talented team, that doesn’t make him less of a stud. “We recruited him quite hard during my time at Florida State,” Stoops said. “I remember him. He was a fantastic player, one of the top players in the country coming out of high school, fantastic player, just very hard runner, elusive. For his size and strength, he’s elusive. He’s coming up on 1,000 yards already I want to say, so yeah, very good player.” During his freshman season at Georgia, Crowell racked up 850 yards on the ground, so he’s no stranger to thwarting SEC defenses.

UK volleyball set to take on undefeated Missouri

UK volleyball will head to Fayetteville, Ark., to take on the University of Arkansas on Friday before going up against the undefeated No. 7 University of Missouri in Columbia, Mo., on Sunday. Missouri (25-0, 9-0 SEC) is one of two teams in the country with a perfect record on the season. The Tigers are off to their best start in program history, passing their 19-0 mark in 1982. “Going on the road in this conference is never easy and we’ll need a good week of practice so we can execute in (Missouri and Arkansas),” UK head coach Craig Skinner said on Sunday. At 1,648 kills, Missouri senior outside hitter Lisa Henning, who has the fourthmost kills among active players in the NCAA, needs only 11 kills to break the Missouri record for kills in a career. Henning’s 4.3 kills per set ranks second in the SEC. Missouri freshman defensive specialist Carly Kan is the reigning SEC Player of the Week, an honor that has not been given to a

Missouri freshman in more than six years. Arkansas (13-9, 6-5 SEC) has dropped its previous two SEC matches to Texas A&M University and Louisiana State University. No. 19 UK (15-5, 7-2 SEC) has lost two of its last five after a 6-0 start to SEC play. The Cats had a two-game home stand last weekend in which they swept Mississippi State University and beat the University of Alabama in four sets. Senior middle blocker Alexandra Morgan registered a season-high 14 kills in the match against the University of Alabama. Billings has registered nine double-doubles this season. Senior outside hitter Whitney Billings is fifth in the SEC in kills with 3.67 kills per set. UK will face Arkansas at 8 p.m. Friday and Missouri at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. STAFF REPORT

Women’s soccer drops season finale to South Carolina

UK hockey travels to Bowling Green State University this weekend for a pair of games. The teams will faceoff Friday at 11 p.m. before playing again Saturday at 9:30 p.m. Bowling Green has faced future UK opponent Ohio State already this season, losing to the Buckeyes 10-8. “We need to come out focused and ready to play our game,” senior forward Jake Boss said of the Falcons. The Falcons (5-4-0) are lead by senior forward Matt White's 18 points. Bowling Green junior forward Rich Shaffer leads the team in goals with 10, and junior forward Drew Savage leads the penalty minutes with 31. The Cats (3-6-0) are led by junior forward Charlie Hales and senior forward Hunter McFadden with their six points. Hales also co-leads the team in goals with senior defenseman Jeremy Schmidt with four apiece. Schmidt also leads the team in penalty minutes with 65.

UK is hungry to get a win after dropping both games last weekend in close contests to Toledo. “We battled back in both games, but couldn’t close for the win,” Cats senior defenseman Pat Wittman said. Wittman said the Cats were unable to control their emotions, and it was something that the team spoke about on the bus ride home. “We need to keep our emotions in check. The team that is worried about the referees and not the faceoff is the team that is not ready to play the game,” Wittman said. The Cats plan to worry about the way they play the game and not about the officiating this weekend in Bowling Green. “Its almost a chance for redemption. We will only be twenty minutes south of Toledo,” Wittman said. UK has been out-shot over the past several weekends, another thing the team says it needs to work on. “We need to put more shots on goal. We can’t keep waiting for the pretty shots. Sometimes it’s the ones that aren’t so pretty that wind up in the net,” Boss said.

assignments and stop Crowell before he gets going, or he could have a big day. Alabama State is averaging over 260 yards per game on the ground, and UK is allowing over 200 yards per game this season. After almost a full season of facing topnotch opponents, handling the Hornets’ rushing attack shouldn’t be too tall a task. Stop the run like they should, and UK can avoid an embarrassingly competitive game. Edge: UK

Savoring success Remember the Miami University (Ohio) game, when UK actually looked like an accomplished football team on both sides of the ball? What a distant memory that seems.

UK women’s soccer finished the 2013 regular season with a 2-1 road loss at the hands of the University of South Carolina. The Cats (13-5-1, 7-4-0 SEC) went 2-3 in the last five matches of the season and will finish fifth in the conference regular season standings. UK led the No. 10 Gamecocks (15-2-2, 8-2-1 SEC) at the end of the first half thanks to a goal from sophomore defender Cara Ledman in the 14th minute. South Carolina’s scoreless first half marked the 13th time this season that UK held an opponent without a goal in the first half. The Gamecocks would begin their come-

back effort in the 52nd minute when senior forward Danielle Au tied the match on a penalty kick that was awarded to USC after UK senior goalkeeper Kayla King was issued a yellow card in the box. South Carolina would net the game-winner in the 83rd minute when sophomore midfielder Raina Johnson got the ball past King. "Obviously, set pieces are something that we have not been good at this year," UK head coach Jon Lipsitz said. "It is certainly something that we have talked a lot about the past couple of weeks. You can see the improvement that we have made in that area, but it isn't enough when you can't close out games. You aren't supposed to give away

games like that when you have the early lead.” The win secured an undefeated home record for the Gamecocks and the best winning percentage in the program’s history. UK was outshot in the match 16-7 by South Carolina, and the Cats were given three corner kick opportunities compared to South Carolina’s 11. UK will go into the SEC Tournament on Nov. 6 with a first-round bye. The Cats, seeded fifth, will play fourth-seeded University of Mississippi at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday in Orange Beach, Ala.

Transylvania offers UK first taste of outside competition

NICK GRAY ngray@kykernel.com

A week from today, UK opens its season on Nov. 8 in Rupp Arena against the University of North Carolina at Asheville. UK head coach John Calipari has seven more days, including Friday’s exhibition game against Transylvania University (7 p.m., Friday, Fox Sports Net), to, as he said, “figure out these six or seven” players who will play the majority of minutes. “We get another look,” Calipari said about the Transylvania scrimmage. “The scrimmage kind of put out one thing, but let’s see it against somebody else and see how guys do.” Freshman forward Derek Willis scored

coordinator Neal Brown said. “We just haven’t been able to sustain it. That’s the thing that’s been frustrating is, we’ve done some really good things. Even in (the Mississippi State University game), we did some really good things. We just haven’t been able to consistently do things and execute the way we need to execute.” UK should respect its opponents — Alabama State has six wins to UK’s one, after all — but the Cats need to take the opportunity to show what their made of. Like Brown said, they looked good at times in Starkville, Miss., but this game is a time for them to

21 points and grabbed eight rebounds in 36 minutes at the Blue-White Scrimmage on Tuesday. Willis is battling with freshman forwards Julius Randle and Marcus Lee for time at power forward and has surprised Calipari. “You would think he’d be physically challenged in some of these practices ... he figures out ways,” Calipari said. “I think he’s better than he thought, I see him better than I thought, and it’s good for him.” Calipari said although Willis deserves playing time, so do other players. “The great news is that everybody is challenged,” Calipari said. “You have guys playing really well, where now all of the sudden I’m in my office at 10:30 and I hear ‘Thump, thump, thump.’ The guy who’s playing against that guy is in the gym say-

ing, ‘I gotta get some extra work in. This guy is really playing well.’ That’s good for us.” Freshman guard Andrew Harrison is out Friday against Transylvania with a knee contusion that Calipari called a bone bruise. Calipari tweeted on Thursday that sophomore forward Alex Poythress will start in his place, likely pushing freshman James Young to shooting guard. Young factors in the playing time shuffle as NBA scouts and Calipari himself have said throughout the preseason that the 6foot-6-inch guard has been among the best players in practice. Calipari said Thursday that Young can play at one forward position (at small forward during the Blue-White Scrimmage) as well as shooting guard, and compared him

to two UK alums, a guard and a forward, who are now in the NBA. “I told James yesterday ‘from what I see, he’s got to be DeAndre Liggins and Michael Kidd- (Gilchrist),’” Calipari said. “If I make him guard their best player, it may be a point guard or it may be a guy running off 50 screens, what is that going to do to his offense? It’s going to take that back a little bit.” One expectation was added Thursday to the Cats’ preseason. UK was voted No. 1 in the Associated Press Top 25 preseason basketball poll, receiving 27 of 65 first-place votes. “It’s a blessing to be ranked No. 1, but it just says we got a lot on our back now where we really have to stay focused,” freshman center Dakari Johnson said.

Five-star Blackmon Jr. chooses IU over UK

Five-star guard James Blackmon Jr. committed to Indiana University on Thursday, choosing the Hoosiers over UK and three others. The No. 19 overall player from the Class of 2014, according to ESPN, from Marion High School in Marion, Ind., announced his decision on ESPNU. Blackmon had committed to Indiana, but decommitted on Aug. 9, according to Ben Roberts of NextCats, to explore his options. Blackmon was also considering UK, the University of Michigan, Kansas

University and Michigan State University for his college destination. The 6-foot-2-inch, 175-pound guard averaged 33.3 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game in his junior year at Marion High School, according to MaxPreps. Blackmon is listed as the No. 4 overall shooting guard in the nation per ESPN, and joins four-star guard Robert Johnson and three-star forward Max Hoetzel in the Hoosiers’ 2014 recruiting class.

To get the advantage, check the day's rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is a 9 — Frustration is only part of the equation. The more you do, the more you discover what needs to be done. But don't push yourself too hard, either. Use turn signals. And empower the group to proceed. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Today is a 7 — Arguments get you nowhere. Clean up your closets and make some money turning your trash into somebody else's treasure. It works like magic. You thrive in private more than in public right now. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Today is a 8 — You may run into some opposition right now, but it's nothing you can't handle with a bit of outside-the-box thinking and clear communication.
