Former Cat not a graduate


Manhattan coach on leave for resume discrepancy

Community rallies against sexual assault in annual event

Former UK basketball walk-on and Manhattan College men’s basketball head coach Steve Masiello has been placed on leave from Manhattan College, according to a press release issued Tuesday by the university. His leave comes as the result of a background check by the University of South Florida that revealed he did not graduate from UK as his resume indicated. Masiello is “currently in the process of reviewing his degree status with the University of Kentucky,” according to the release. ESPN’s Brett McMurphy first reported the results of Masiello’s background check. Masiello Masiello was set to accept the head coaching position at USF when the background check by Eastman & Beaudine, the firm hired by USF for the search, revealed that Masiello did not receive the degree, according to the release. “The agreement was pending a verification of See MASIELLO on page 2

Northwestern University football players are employees of the school and are therefore entitled to a union election, Peter Sung Ohr, the regional director of the National Labor Relations Board, said in a ruling released Wednesday afternoon. Ohr’s decision is expected to be appealed to the NLRB in Washington. Labor experts say an election is unlikely to take place until the NLRB makes a decision. If Ohr’s decision is upheld, the case would likely make its way through federal appellate court and could reach the Supreme Court. The decision is “revolutionary for college sports,” said Robert McCormick, a professor emeritus at Michigan State University College of Law who focuses on sports and labor law. McCormick said Ohr’s decision could influence other state and federal agencies. For example, if college players demand compensation for injuries sustained during training or a game, Ohr’s opinion could come into play in the question of whether the players are employees under the state Workers’ Compensation Act.

It was 1975 and the Atlanta Braves were losing. An 11-year-old Christine Riordan, now UK provost, was at the game with her brother. In search of cotton candy, Riordan went out on her own. In a secluded part of the stadium, Riordan was approached by a group of teenage boys. When one of the boys began to assault her, another boy spoke up and said, “Hey man, cut it out. Let her go.” Her story was one of many told at Take Back The Night, a rally held outside the Lexington courthouse Wednesday night. Riordan said she was thankful to see so many people come to the rally, as she was thankful to the boy who spoke up during the Braves’ game. An average of four people everyday come to the Lexington courthouse to file complaints of domestic abuse, said Fayette Circuit Court Judge John Schrader. About 200 students and community members joined Schrader, who handles many of these cases, to support the victims of these violent crimes. Before the rally, people gathered at Patterson Office Tower, Thoroughbred Park and Third Street Stuff to march downtown with the help of a police escort. “There are so many more people here than last year,” said Travis Keene, an art studio senior. Among the individuals who came to show their support

UK scores 3 in the 6th to beat Xavier Baseball has won 4 of last 5 games By Josh Huff


Juniors Max Kuhn and A.J. Reed celebrate a 9-6 victory over Xavier University on Wednesday.

UK wrestled control of its game in the sixth inning Wednesday to defeat Xavier University, 9-6, at Cliff Hagan Stadium. No. 19 UK (18-7, 3-3 SEC) jumped out to an early lead against Xavier freshman starting pitcher Trent Astle (12), plating three runs in the

first inning. Junior third baseman Max Kuhn drove in junior outfielder Austin Cousino with a double in the bottom of the first inning. SEC Player of the Week and senior catcher Micheal Thomas followed with an RBI on a sacrifice fly. Then sophomore outfielder Dorian Hairston drilled a two-out triple to right field, driving in sopho-

more outfielder Ka’ai Tom to push the lead to 3-0. Hairston was the only UK player with two hits on Wednesday. The game marked his second start of the season, all within the last three games. “I just try to stick with the approach,” Hairston said. But the Musketeers mounted a rally in the top of the second inning. Xavier freshman infielder Andre Jernigan singled up the middle, scoring a run. Musketeers sophomore catcher Daniel

Rizzie followed with an RBI single to bring the Cats’ lead down to one run. UK sophomore starting pitcher Ryne Combs allowed a run on a wild pitch to tie the game at 3. Combs (1-1) lasted two innings, allowing three runs on four hits. Sophomore pitcher Dylan Dwyer replaced Combs in the third inning, striking out two. Sophomore pitcher Taylor Martin took the reins in the See BASEBALL on page 2

Bin Laden’s son-in-law convicted of conspiring to kill Americans By Tina Susman Los Angeles Times (MCT)

NEW YORK — In a quick decision, a jury on Wednesday convicted Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law of conspiring to kill Americans in his role as the angry voice of alQaida after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, 48, faces life in prison when he is sentenced Sept. 8. The case has given the public its first and possibly only chance to watch a terror-

UNION Continued from page 1 Northwestern’s football players are the first in college sports to seek union representation. Behind the effort is the College Athletes Players Association, or CAPA, a union funded by Ramogi Huma, a former UCLA linebacker who has become an advocate for players’ rights. CAPA is backed by the United Steelworkers, which is covering the group’s legal expenses. Among its demands, CAPA is seeking financial coverage for former players with sports-related medical expenses, independent concussion experts to be placed on the sidelines during games and the creation of an educational trust fund to help for-

for the terror group. “This man was not Osama bin Laden’s puppet,” said Jonathan Cronan, an assistant U.S. attorney, as he pointed his finger at abu Ghaith during the trial “He was not a robot.” Cronan insisted Abu Ghaith was a high-ranking alQaida leader who was summoned to bin Laden’s cave in the mountains outside Kabul, Afghanistan, on the evening of Sept. 11, 2001. There, Abu Ghaith was asked to deliver a rousing speech heralding the killings and urging young

Muslims to stage more attacks, Cronan said. “Al-Qaida’s purpose was to murder Americans, and the defendant was all in,” Cronan said as Abu Ghaith listened through an interpreter. But Abu Ghaith’s defense attorney, Stanley Cohen, dismissed the government’s case as based not on evidence but on recordings and videos, including one showing hijacked jets slamming into the World Trade Center towers and the buildings enveloped in black smoke.

by Delta Sigma Theta sorority and Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. Guest speakers included Riordan, Fayette Circuit Court Judge Kathy Stein, and Chamara Kwakye, an assistant professor in the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies. Victims of sexual assault

came up to the podium and shared their stories. For some of them, it was their first time talking about it in public. “I am not a victim, I am a survivor,” said Sarah Miller, who has suffered sexual assault. “Together, we will create the more beautiful world we all know is possible.” Josh Nadzam, who ran

from Lexington to Frankfort on March 6 to protest sexual violence, said that men are failing to treat women with respect. “As a young person, we’ve got to do everything we can,” Nadzam said. “You don’t have to run to Frankfort … (but) we all have a voice.”

After scoring a run in the fifth inning, Xavier took advantage of a bases-loaded situation in the sixth, driving in two runs off of UK sophomore pitcher Sam Mahar to tie the game. UK plated three more runs in the sixth to jump back into the lead, 9-6. Xavier failed to mount another rally after the sixth inning and UK’s bullpen closed the door.

mer players graduate. Alan Cubbage, vice president for university relations at Northwestern, said in a statement they were disappointed in the decision. “While we respect the NLRB process and the regional director’s opinion, we disagree with it,” the university said. “Northwestern believes strongly that our student-athletes are not employees, but students. Unionization and collective bargaining are not the appropriate methods to address the concerns raised by student-athletes.” Northwestern confirmed that it plans to appeal to the full National Labor Relations Board in Washington, D.C. “We believe that participation in athletic events is part of the overall educational experience for those students, not a separate activity,” NU said.

The national search continues and USF looks forward to introducing a new coach at the appropriate time.” Masiello has been the

Manhattan head coach since April 2011. Before then, he was an assistant coach at the University of Louisville from 2005-11 under Rick Pitino, who was his coach at UK in 1996. UK spokeswoman Kathy Johnson said that Masiello attended the university from fall 1996 to spring 2000 but did not graduate.

‘Manic pixie dream girls’ send the wrong message ELEANOR HASKEN

Kernel columnist

Films such as “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World,” “Fight Club” and “Garden State” have one frustrating thing in common. The lead female embodies one of the most annoying and prevalent female TV tropes: the manic pixie dream girl. The term manic pixie dream girl was coined by Nathan Rabin, a writer from A.V Club, an entertainment website published by The Onion. Rabin writes that a manic pixie dream girl exists “solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life.” Basically, he says that manic pixie dream girls are created by directors and writers to make introverted male characters more extroverted. These female roles tend to lack a character arch and simply serve to bolster the male character. They are typically a love interest of the male without any hobbies

outside of being around him. Looking at some of the following examples, it is impossible to disagree: Ramona Flowers, from “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World,” is an interesting and exciting female character in the graphic novels, but due to time constraints, the film version leaves much to be desired. Ramona pulls Scott out of his mundane life and introduces him to a world of boss battles and excitement. Granted, Ramona is a bit complex. But her complexity, too, stems from experiences with ex-boyfriends. This portrayal of women is frustrating, at best. The quirky nature of these women makes them look fun and carefree. But as the film progresses, the audience realizes that the woman does nothing for herself. The woman becomes a springboard for the man’s personal growth. In an episode of “30 Rock,” guest actress Jennifer Aniston portrays a character that parodies this trope. She has very eccentric quirks, from making hats to breaking into homes, and uses them to entrap the love of a very powerful man. Other women around her do not

tolerate her behavior, demonstrating female frustration with the chracterization of a manic pixie dream girl. These one-dimensional female characters have no other purpose but to show a man what a life outside of the mundane can be. Limiting a human to serving as an escape from reality teaches that a person doesn’t have to have an identity of his or her own. Sure, being eccentric and fun is great. Being able to escape from reality is, too. But a love interest should be more than a constant escape from reality. Real love is complicated and multi dimensional. Having a woman serve as a shallow representation of desired, carefree love limits the growth of the character. The female role has no character arch. A woman is much more than that.

Stray Rescue dogs learn from prisoners Inmates help socialize, teach obedience

By Leah Thorsen St. Louis Post-Dispatch (MCT)

PACIFIC, Mo. — The inmates sat quietly on a recent Wednesday, watching intently as each Stray Rescue dog was led into a room at Missouri Eastern Correctional Center. It was the first time they saw the dogs that will share their cells, and most aspects of their lives, for the next three months. “They all come from horrible backgrounds,” Randy Grim, the rescue group’s founder, told them. The dogs had lived on the streets, been abused, been sick. They need help, and a lot of time and a lot of patience, to make them adoptable. That’s where the inmates come in. One by one, each dog’s name was called with the names of the two cellmates paired with it through the Puppies for Parole program. It’s the first time Stray Rescue of St. Louis has participated.

The inmates at the medium-security prison will teach seven Stray Rescue dogs basic obedience and socialization skills in hopes of getting the dogs certified as “canine good citizens.”

Stray Rescue is all about second chances, and I would think that’s how it is here.” RANDY GRIM Stray Rescue founder

The dogs will sleep in crates in the inmates’ cells and can go with the inmates to most places around the prison, but not to the visitors’ area or to the cafeteria. They will be made available for adoption through

Stray Rescue after completing the program. More than 2,000 Puppies for Parole dogs have been adopted, according to the Missouri Department of Corrections. The program is funded by donations and receives no tax money. “Stray Rescue is all about second chances, and I would think that’s how it is here,” Grim said. The Pacific, Mo., prison has been without rescue dogs for about a year, and they’ve been sorely missed, said Warden Jennifer Sachse. “They have a calming effect,” she said, recalling an elderly inmate who hadn’t touched a dog in years and cried when he got to pet one. The inmates beamed as they led the leashed dogs outside, stooping to scratch their ears and laughing when the dogs clamored for attention. “We really appreciate this,” said Chris Smith, who is paired with Ralph, a 2year-old terrier and Boxer mix, as he walked by Grim.

UK safeties to add talent in 2014 By Matt Overing

UK’s defense struggled in giving up yards and producing turnovers last season, with no help from the safety position. The Cats recorded three interceptions in 2013, two of which were made by linebackers. The third was made by junior Ashely Lowery in the final game of the year against the University of Tennessee. The Cats will have more experience and talent in 2014. Senior Dakotah Tyler is the only safety that will not be on the 2014 team. UK returns five contributors (safeties that recorded at least one tackle in 2013) from last season, most notably Lowery and fellow senior-to-be Eric Dixon. Sophomore Zack Blaylock redshirted in 2013 after

starting three games in 2012 and will provide depth at the position. Five defensive backs will join the UK roster in 2014. Two will assuredly play at safety: 4-star Mike Edwards (Winton Woods High School, Cincinnati) and 3-star Jared Tucker (Stephenson High School, Stone Mountain, Ga.). UK head coach Mark Stoops said on National Signing Day that he was proud of the versatility of his 2014 defensive backs. “I like guys that can play corner, nickel, dime and safety,” Stoops said. “That's what I love about this group. In general, I think they’re tough, hard-nosed guys.” Lowery and Dixon have strangleholds on the two safety positions. Both finished in the Top 10 on the team in tackles in 2013 and have played 20 games in the last

two seasons. Playing time behind the two seniors will be tough to come by, but if Stoops plans to use safeties in different packages and positions, more players could see the field. Freshman Marcus McWilson played in eight games last season (eight tackles, two for a loss) and proved that freshmen can play and succeed. Edwards and Tucker may be next in line to come in and contribute right away. How the UK defense as a whole performs in defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot’s second year in Lexington will help determine the success of safeties in 2014. Last season, the entire secondary struggled. With more experience and help outside of the hashes and on the defensive line, UK's safeties should have more freedom in the middle of the field to make plays.

Cats claw back after breakthrough Major improvements made since 19-point loss at Florida DAVID SCHUH

Kernel columnist

Every successful UK team in recent memory has had a breakthrough — a game or moment when the pieces finally fit together. With teams so young, comprising players so different, recognizing that moment is hard. But often a team takes off once it has hit rock bottom. UK finally hit that bottom and has seen the breakthrough on the other side. But unlike seasons past, it happened much later than anticipated. The 2010-11 season began much like the current one, a

team mired in inconsistency despite its immense talent. But after its eighth loss of the season on Feb. 23, the Cats caught fire, running off with 10 straight wins before losing in the Final Four. And the 2011-12 team, one that started much better than its predecessor, had its first loss on a last-second shot at Indiana University in December. From there, UK won 24 games in a row on its way to the program’s eighth National Championship. The common theme among the moments that turned those seasons around is disappointment. When the worst adversity hit, the Cats responded. There have been plenty of disappointing losses this season: Baylor, North Carolina, Arkansas and South Carolina.

But the moment that made the difference, the one that finally turned around UK’s season, was a March 8 blowout at the University of Florida. From the opening tip, the Cats were outmatched. Down by 21 points at halftime, not even a 15-0 second-half run could overcome the Gators on their senior day. But UK head coach John Calipari saw something in that game, something that in hindsight he wished could have ensured his team’s success months earlier. Since that 19-point loss to No. 1 Florida, the Cats have won four of their last five games, the only misstep coming with a one-point loss to the Gators in the SEC Championship game. The entire team has changed. Freshman guards

Aaron and Andrew Harrison are playing their best basketball of the season. Their recent success, combined with consistent play down the roster, has produced results that finally compare to the team’s preseason expectations. “I think it proved we were better than people were giving us credit for,” sophomore Willie Cauley-Stein said after the Cats’ win over Wichita State University on Sunday. Facing elimination in every impending game, it was about time. Calipari had been pushing buttons all season, and he finally found the right ones. Just like the great teams before them, these Cats have met their breakthrough moment. The only remaining question is whether they caught on too late.


Celebrate, sulk responsibly Friday

UK’s basketball reputation is not all that is at stake Friday when UK matches up against the University of Louisville. The student body’s reputation is at stake, too. After UK won the same matchup in the Final Four two seasons ago, students flipped and burned cars and couches. Armed with beer bottles, they partied in the streets. Police were forced to counter with pepper spray balls in a clash that made national headlines, eclipsing the Cats’ victory. Whether UK wins or loses this time around, students should not embarrass themselves or taint the university’s reputation, which belongs to all Kentuckians. Seeing your school’s team climb the ladder in the NCAA Tournament is a rare and thrilling experience, but

it should never escalate to rioting or burning items in the street. Burning a couch may seem like a victimless crime, but police and firefighters are forced to put out the fires. As police and firefighters respond to purposefully set fires, dangers in other parts of the city can go unalleviated, which can have grave, and even deadly, consequences. Represent UK and the state of Kentucky as spirited basketball fans. And most importantly, don’t become the top story of the day. No matter the outcome Friday, celebrate or sulk in your own way. Go to a party, head to the bars or just sit at home by yourself. But don’t let things get out of control. Email opinions@

A Conversation with


Randle rises to the occasion

By Nick Gray

Jabari Parker’s NCAA Tournament life was at the mercy of Mercer University. Andrew Wiggins was knocked out of the pecking order by Stanford University. Julius Randle is one of a few highly-touted freshmen still alive in the NCAA Tournament, and he is a big part of why 8-seed UK is in the Sweet 16. Hours after the University of Kansas was upset by Stanford, UK advanced to the Sweet 16 on the shoulders of one of Randle’s most complete games. Randle recorded 13 points, 10 rebounds and a season-high seven assists.

“He is a grown man and he comes really, really hard,” said Wichita State University head coach Gregg Marshall. “I was disappointed on our work on the glass, but that’s what they do.” In two NCAA Tournament games, Randle has averaged 16 points and 12.5 rebounds, separating himself from freshmen across the country. Duke University lost Friday in its first game. Parker scored 14 points on 4-of-14 shooting and added four turnovers. The Blue Devils’ loss affected Parker to the point that he called his freshman season “incomplete.” Syracuse University lost in the round of 32, with freshman guard Tyler Ennis playing all 40 minutes. He scored 19 points, but they came on 21 shots and 33 percent shooting. Among other highlyranked freshmen, Kansas center Joel Embiid sat out the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, and Indiana University forward Noah Vonleh did

not reach the postseason. Aside from Randle, only University of Arizona forward Aaron Gordon and UK guard James Young are still alive among DraftExpress’ Top 8 NBA-ready freshmen. Randle’s longevity is more impressive considering where he and the Cats were a few weeks ago. “I didn’t do a great job with him,” Calipari said. “I didn’t define how he needed to play.” But with the team’s newfound success comes an improved assist-to-turnover ratio for Randle. Randle has almost twice as many turnovers as assists this season, but that statistic has changed for the better over the last five games (nine assists to eight turnovers). “Just seeing us getting better each game is encouraging in itself,” Randle said. “And I know that I have teammates, that when a challenge presents itself, we will rise to the challenge.”
