Cats to host NCAA tournament game
For the 3rd straight year, UK will begin its postseason at home By Kevin Erpenbeck email@example.com
For the third straight season, UK women’s soccer will host a NCAA Tournament game. The Cats will host Ohio State University Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the UK Soccer Complex. The team learned of its fate for the tournament at a watch party held in Commonwealth Stadium Monday night. UK has now made it to NCAA Tournament three out of the five years of the Jon Lipsitz head coaching era. This year also marks the first time in the program’s history that UK has made three straight NCAA Tournament appearances. Lipsitz said the team had faced countless challenges throughout the year to get where they are today. “If you had told me at the beginning of the season
that we would be sitting here right now, I would have told you there was absolutely no way,” Lipsitz said. “With all the injuries we’ve had in the spring, summer, and throughout the season … I am extremely proud of this team and what they have accomplished this season.” Some of the injuries the Cats had sustained this year were to players like senior defender Ashley VanLandingham, who suffered a season-ending injury before the season even began, and freshman midfielder Alex Carter, who missed seven games due to a leg injury she sustained during the season. One of the most notable injuries to hit UK, however, was the season-ending injury junior forward Stuart Pope suffered in the home finale against Louisiana State University. Pope tore her ACL See SOCCER on page 2

Talent show rocks the ‘dot’
Young Cats face tough challenge against No. 2 Spartans Game is earliest ever for No. 1 vs. No. 2 By Nick Gray firstname.lastname@example.org
The earliest No. 1 versus No. 2 matchup ever in college basketball will take form Tuesday in Chicago. But the differences in experience for No. 1 UK and No. 2 Michigan State University are contrasting. Michigan State has two guards – sophomore Gary Harris and senior Keith Appling – who have won awards in their college careers and have been in games of importance before. Both players played in the Big Ten Tournament semifinals last season against Ohio State University in the United Center, the site of Tuesday’s game (7:30 p.m., ESPN). Appling and Harris will battle UK freshman guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison. “Do well with what we have and let’s worry about us,” Calipari said about fighting the difference in experience. “Knowing you have to

Students were “Rocking the Dot” Monday at a talent show put on by the Martin Luther King Jr. Cultural Center and the Violence Intervention Prevention Center. Rock the Dot helped students get together to support each other and share why they feel prevention of violence, or “green dots,” and social change is important. Singing, rapping and poetry performances came from students and adults of all ages. Eleven participants shared a “green dot” experience or explained how they promote the “green dot strategy,” then performed for four judges. According the VIP Center’s website, a “green dot” is

a strategy that is a comprehensive approach to the primary prevention of violence that capitalizes on the power of peer and cultural influence across all levels of the socioecological model. A “green dot” is opposed by a “red dot,” which signals an act of power-based personal violence. The judges included Dr. Alan Desantis of UK’s Department of Communication, Matt Soergel from the Office of Substance Education and Responsibility, Brandy Reeves, Director of Student Affairs for the College of public Health and Matthew Deffendall, Director of First Generation Initiatives.

More than 340,000 veterans reside in Kentucky, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The UK Veterans Resource Center held a ceremony Monday to show appreciation for and honor those who have served, are currently serving and those who will serve in the future. A small group of UK community members gathered under the flag pole on the main lawn, then proceeded to Buell Armory for lunch. “It’s their day … we want to thank them for See VETERANS on page 2 Classifieds.............3 Crossword.............3 Horoscope.............3
The UK Alumni Association is serving a free breakfast to any interested students for its last Wildcat Wednesday of the semester. This Wednesday from 811 a.m. in the King Alumni House, students can grab coffee, doughnuts, milk and juice in a buffet-style meal. No prior registration is necessary, the breakfast is open to all UK students. A UK Alumni Association program coordinator Meg Phillips hopes the event makes students aware of what the alumni association can offer them. “We started Wildcat Wednesday as a way to reach out to students and connect with them before they graduate,” Phillips said. “Our goal

is to let students know that we are here and we can help, especially before graduation.” Wildcat Wednesday happens three times a semester, usually during the middle three months of each one. Next to the buffet table, there are spaces to study, along with an information table where students can learn about the resources that the Alumni Association offers. The breakfast also serves as a Tally Cats swipe event, and has door prizes available for those who attend. Students can also order free business cards from the Alumni Association. “We offer Grad Salute, which is a one stop shop for commencement help. We can See BREAKFAST on page 2

Despite record, Cats will still fight Stoops says he will play young guys as season winds down By Matt Overing firstname.lastname@example.org
A loss of bowl eligibility and the guarantee of a losing season will not deter the UK football team from trying to pick up their first SEC victory since 2011 in their final three games. After the loss to No. 8 University of Missouri last Saturday, UK (2-7, 0-5 SEC) will not be bowl eligible for the third straight year. It will also be a losing season for UK head coach Mark Stoops in his first year as a head coach. Stoops told reporters Monday that he knows the senior class will not fold. “I think I really like the mentality of our senior class,” Stoops said at his weekly press conference on Monday. “There’s not a guy in that group that's going to lie down.” UK’s next opponent, Vanderbilt University, still has a chance to become bowl eligible. Vanderbilt (5-4, 2-4 SEC) beat the University of Florida 35-17 last week, their first win in Gainesville since 1945. According to the Vanderbilt football Twitter feed, Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin was asked about a bowl bid in his Monday press conference. “Kentucky is our Super Bowl this week,” Franklin said. “We couldn't be more excited about playing them. They are our focus.” Stoops said he’s not moti-
vated to prevent Vanderbilt from becoming bowl eligible. He said he will treat the game like any other. “We need the win for us, for our fans,” Stoops said. “For our people and our kids and our program. That's motivation enough for me.” After the game on Saturday, Stoops admitted that he was frustrated with his team. “I may get frustrated but I’m not discouraged,” Stoops said. Stoops also said that the team needs to improve on both sides of the ball. “That’s our focus, improving in all areas,” Stoops said. “We need play-making ability, we need big, physical guys and we need linebackers. We need a lot of things.” To find those players, Stoops was asked if he’ll play more young players in the final three games of the year. “I think we have to,” Stoops said. “We have to continue to build our program and develop our young guys. Yes, we will do that.” Senior linebacker Avery Williamson told reporters after the Alabama State University win two weeks ago that the team would continue to fight. “We never give up,” Williamson said. “That shows the character of this team that we’re not the type that is just going to lay down when we’re losing. I’m proud of these guys and myself for going out there and continuing to fight.”
Ansel Adams exhibit set to open Rasdall Gallery will display prints By Brooke Hamilton email@example.com
From the 19th century until now, one form of photography has remained timeless and popular: black and white. Ansel Adams was a black and white landscape photographer whose work has been largely reproduced on posters and calendars, according to the Ansel Adams Gallery website. The Student Activities Board will host the Ansel Adams Photography Exhibit Reception at 7 p.m. on Tuesday in the Rasdall Gallery in the Student Center. The exhibit opens Tuesday and runs through Dec. 7. “Ansel Adams is such a

staple in American landscape photography and is an icon in the photography world,” said Jacob Ewing, director of public relations for the Student Activities Board and integrated strategic communications sophomore. Exhibits tend to last up to a month, though the majority of visitors come to the reception. “There are generally more benefits for coming to the reception,” Ewing said. “For example, there’s free food and you can win a photographic print.” Attendance for students is free. “We do see this exhibit as being very popular,” Ewing said. “I hope it will be.” gram or sign in or anything.

And they have a fourman (senior forward Branden Dawson) who can shoot or post,” Calipari said. “So whether they run him to the block or they trail him, you have got to guard people.” Cats freshman forward Julius Randle was named the SEC Player of the Week for his opening weekend performance, which included two double-doubles in his first two games as a college player. Randle will start against Spartans sophomore forward Matt Costello, who started his first ever college game Friday versus McNeese State University. Costello will be helped by junior forward
The participants were judged by four judges and the audience, and awards were given out in three different categories by each: most creative, best “green dot” and overall winner. Winners throughout the night included Jordan Jackson, who won the most creative award for his original rap from both the judges and the audience. The Black Voices Gospel Choir got the audience’s vote for overall winner, while solo artist Dajom Spades
Alex Gauna and freshman forward Gavin Schilling, all of whom played 10 or more minutes in the Spartans’ season opener. Among those who Randle will fight in the post is Michigan State senior forward Adreian Payne, who was a preseason All-America selection by Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook and also a Second-team AllBig Ten pick last season. “They’re going to double-team him; they’re going to be really physical, and they’re going to sag and make him shoot jumpers,” Calipari said of Randle. Michigan State is one of four ranked teams on UK’s slate, but the first ranked team the Cats have played. “We’ve got other games coming up after that that’ll be just as bright,” Calipari said. “I’m encouraged by how we are (playing) but I don’t know how that will play out versus a team like Michigan State.”

Performer Jordan Jackson, also known as “Captain Jackson’s,”performed again in this year’s event. He said he performs each year because he loves the experience and doesn’t want to take the opportunity of getting to take initiative for granted.
VETERANS Continued from page 1 their service,” Veterans Resource Center Coordinator Anthony Dotson said. “It is important to set aside a day to acknowledge the sacrifice and service (of veterans).” Dotson, a 26-year Army veteran, said regardless of what branch of the military a person has served in, each veteran wants their services to be recognized and appreciated. He estimates about 700 UK students fall into the category of “student veterans,” meaning they are a veteran themselves, or a dependent of a veteran. Dotson also guesstimates more than 1,000 veterans are UK faculty or staff members, although the exact number is not known. UK student veterans represent one of the largest groups on campus, larger than the athletic department, according to UK Student Veteran Association President Brad Angell. For this reason, he said Veterans Day is important to UK’s campus.

“This event is important because it lets people express their feelings. It’s not good to keep that all bottled up, it’ll make you crazy,” Jackson said. “It’s a great opportunity for people who all feel the same way to get together and talk.” Despite the categories, the focus of the event was not the competition aspect. “It doesn’t even seem like a competition,” Desantis said. “It’s just like-minded people sharing what they care about.” “School is tough enough ... (going through it) alone is harder,” Angell said. “We should be here for each other ... what a better day to do that than Veterans Day.” Will Pritchett, UK Army ROTC cadet battalion commander and UK senior said he has put all his energy

into making Veterans Day a good day for veterans and raising awareness of the holiday. “It is important to us (that) everyone takes the opportunity to thank the veterans for their service,” he said. “It’s one day out of the year to recognize something people devote their entire lives to.” We realize that we have lost major components on this team, but I have no doubt this team will come out and prove that they have every aspect to get the job done.” For the senior class, such as goalkeeper Kayla King, the NCAA Tournament will be a familiar feel to them by now. The level of anticipation does not change, however, according to King. “I’m so stoked,” King said. “To have the privilege of being on a great team that has been able to go to the NCAA Tournament for the past three years, there’s nothing like it. And to host … that is huge. I can’t wait.”

Uninformed voters are crippling democracy MATT YOUNG
It does not take a policy expert to know that politicians lie; it’s just the dark side of democracy. But Dave Wilson has taken it to a whole new level. Last week Texas state elections were held, and Wilson became the newest Houston Community College Trustee after leading voters to believe he was black, according to CBS Houston News. No need to get your eyes checked – you read that correctly. Wilson, an elderly white man, admits his dirty tactics readily. In a voting district heavily populated with blacks and minorities, he pulled pictures off the Internet of black families and featured them in his mail-out fliers. He used terms like “please vote for our friend and neighbor.” Politics get no dirtier than that, but unfortunately his election is valid, and unless the recount is different he will be the newest trustee.
While many voters, and perhaps many readers, blame Wilson for his dirty tactics, some politicos blame the voters. One of the biggest problems we have in our democracy is uninformed-voters. If a voter does not understand the issues, or even know the candidates for that matter, how can he or she be an effective citizen in a democracy? Many would argue they cannot. This is excruciatingly frustrating to policy wonks for many reasons, but one in particular. If voters get information from bad sources, they essentially cast a vote for the source, not for themselves. This needs to be stated again. If voters get information from a bias entertainment source (i.e. Fox News, MSNBC, or any for profit talk radio personality) they have cast that source’s vote, not their own. These propaganda outlets have cast more votes than ordinary citizens in the last decade, and it has led directly to the problems our nation faces right now. The popular catch phrase in politics is that Congress is broken. However, one could argue they are doing exactly
what they should be doing: brownnose to special interests. The problem is not the government; the problem is the people – us, you and me. If we do not take an active role in our democracy we turn it over to those who will, and recent history shows that will be the special interest groups and propaganda outlets that care about two things and two things only: money and power. Cable news does not care about what happens to you so long as you keep watching their station. Unless voters take the time to do their own vetting of candidates they turn their democracy, and therefore their freedom, over to groups that care nothing for them. That is how we end up where we are today. Next time, before complaining about what Congress is or is not doing, ask yourself if you have invested enough time in your own freedom and democracy to adequately complain. If not, you may be part of the problem. A democracy is only as strong as the information it absorbs. Email opinions@kykernel.
History in the numbers: No. 1 vs. No. 2 DAVID SCHUH
Tuesday’s State Farm Champions Classic will be a colossal display of college basketball’s historical dominance. The four participating programs have a combined 17 NCAA Championships and 7,770 victories. The 7:30 p.m. game between UK and Michigan State University will be the 22nd regular-season matchup of No. 1 and No. 2 in the history of the Associated Press poll. The last such matchup, ironically, also featured UK head coach John Calipari. His No. 1 University of Memphis Tigers lost to No. 2 University of Tennessee in 2008. Calipari’s team ultimately lost in the national
championship that year. A matchup between the top two teams in America is fairly rare and typically occurs late in the season. Tuesday’s game between UK and Michigan State will be the earliest case in history, besting a Nov. 29, 1975 game between the University of Indiana and the University California, Los Angeles. You’d think that each game would be closely contested given the quality of the teams, but often, the marquee matchup turns into a blowout. The average margin of victory in the 21 contests is 11.8 points. For example, in 2005, No. 1 Duke University beat the University of Texas 9766 in December. It may not have been such a large mismatch, but Duke senior guard J.J. Redick was the difference, scoring 41 points. This will be the fourth time UK has played in a No. 1 vs. No. 2 game, and the

first time since a loss to the University of North Carolina in December 1981. The two others were wins in the 1950s. Calipari enjoys the idea of playing a quality team, but not so early in the season. He knows, in a win or loss, his team will learn a lot about themselves. He also believes, though, that it is unfair for such a young team to be thrust into a pressurefilled environment just three games into their college careers. “Right now, there are so many things we haven’t been able to go over and talk about,” Calipari said. “This is who we are. This is all we have. Let’s make it work.” The Champions Classic was extended for another three years last week, so there’s a chance we could see a similar scenario in the near future. But it’s almost unheard of to see a game of this magnitude so early in the season.
