Cats fall to Huskies 60-54, ending No. 9 dream DAVID SCHUH

Kernel columnist

ARLINGTON, Texas — At some point, UK’s luck had to run out. The Cats were playing with house money, and it finally caught up to them. When the buzzer sounded on Monday night, UConn was the team dancing around in confetti while the Cats slowly walked down the tunnel with their heads down, tears in their eyes, wondering how they let their miracle sto-

ry fall one step short. A ninth National Championship, so clo se to reality, would not come home to Lexington. It seemed so indicative of UK’s recent wins. The Cats came out slow, this time to a 15-point first-half deficit (their biggest of the tournament). But like they always do, the Cats fought. Young, inexperienced, immature — these freshmen kept pace. However, they ran into a team just as hot. A big underdog in their own right, the Huskies wouldn’t give up the lead. UK got within one point, but not once did it have a lead. Those magic runs — 10-0, 12-0, 15-0 — that had fueled tournament come-

Despite loss, fans flock to streets Disappointment taints atmosphere on State, Elizabeth By Morgan Eads and Anne Halliwell news@kykernel.com

Sweatshirts were set ablaze Monday night as hundreds of UK fans mourned their team’s loss to UConn. After the final buzzer, State and Elizabeth streets filled with somber fans. Sounds of breaking beer bottles filled the air, and crowds clustered around small fires. The atmosphere differed greatly from the celebrations that followed UK’s Sweet 16, Elite Eight and Final Four victories. UK and Lexington police were out in full riot gear, in larger numbers than during this year’s previous celebrations. Before the game even ended, police removed the stop signs at the intersection of Elizabeth and State streets.

After the final score was locked in, several of the riot police said, “OK, you can go home now. Just go home.” A few fights broke out and more threatened as team loyalties clashed and crowds grew. The crowd did not seem as receptive to police and firefighter presence as it had been in the aftermath of the last few games. Later in the evening, wicker furniture was used to transport students above the crowd to cheers and applause. Fireworks, including small rockets and firecrackers, arced above the crowd, along with flaming T-shirts. Fans waved flags, scaled telephone poles and cheered for the Cats as often as they burned clothing and cursed UConn. Some thought the large

gathering was a show of loyalty. High school senior Dustin Beeler made the road trip to State Street to watch the game. “It’s great even when we lost,” Beeler said. “People,

ARLINGTON, Texas — When the Cats needed one rebound, one Julius Randle layup or one Aaron Harrison 3-pointer, they could not get it. And so it goes that the Cats lost 60-54 to UConn in the National Championship game in AT&T Stadium. Their NCAA Tournament script did not produce the same fruitful ending. UK came back from 15 points down in the first half to just a four-point deficit at halftime. They had shifted to a zone defense to corral Huskies senior guard Shabazz Napier and junior guard Ryan Boatright. The pair scored 23 of UConn’s 35 first-half points.

Similar to the Cats’ prior four games, a large first-half deficit was no match by the time the second half began. UK kept cutting into the Huskies’ lead, but did not have one last run to finish the deal. The Huskies limited UK freshmen twin guards – Aaron and Andrew Harrison – to 6-of-16 shooting with seven turnovers. Boatright and Napier, who were shorter but quicker than the Harrisons, shut down driving lanes, which forced the pair to shoot more 3-point attempts (nine) than 2-point attempts (seven). Freshman guard James Young scored 20 points, making 8-of-9 free throws. Besides Young, UK made See GAMER on page 3

UK community to remember lost lives with ceremony By Matt Overing movering@kykernel.com

The UK community will have a chance Wednesday to remember those who have died throughout the year and in years past. UK Remembers, a ceremony that honors students, faculty and staff who have died, will take place at the botanical gardens outside the Student Center at 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday. Catherine Masoud, cochair of the UK Remembers planning committee, said that the event can be a celebration of life for some and somber for others.. “There are some tears shed at the event,” Masoud said. “It’s just a nice, quiet, heart-felt event.” UK Remembers is in its fifth year. The event is dif-

ferent from other memorials in that no names are spoken at the podium. “The purpose of the event is for anyone affiliated with UK to remember those that they have lost,” Masoud said. “We have notecards available to whoever (attendees) are remembering and it can be posted on the remembrance wall.” The remembrance wall will be posted in the Student Center. Masoud said that members of the audience range from groups of students to individuals coming to pay their respects. “Some people passing by stop and linger, which is fine too,” Masoud said. President Eli Capilouto will speak at the event along with Student Government President Roshan Palli, who

will speak on behalf of students. “The overall theme is of UK as a community,” Masoud said. “Everyone is a part of that community. We embrace you while you’re here and continue to embrace you when you’re gone.” If it rains, the event will be moved to Center Theater inside the Student Center.

University adds degree in writing, rhetoric, digital studies Students adjust to accommodate for new major, minor By Will Wright wwright@kykernel.com

Students can major or minor in writing, rhetoric and digital studies starting in fall 2014, the Board of Trustees announced last week. Many of the WRD classes are already part of UK Core curriculum and count toward English and communication major requirements. But students have not been able to major or minor in WRD. “It allows us to have students who are interested in the field rather than teaching broadly,” said Joshua Abboud, a WRD lecturer. “We can go deep into the studies with them.” Classes in WRD include social media, business writing, multimedia writing, public advocacy, and rhetoric and argument. For some students, the addition of this major and minor may have come too late. “There are a lot of students who are English majors or communication majors

who would have been in this degree,” Abboud said. One of these students is English senior Cory Zigmund. Though Zigmund was originally going to graduate in May with an English degree, he is now considering staying for two more semesters to complete 24 credits and acquire an additional degree in WRD.

WRD brings a focus on writing and digital media ... I think it’ll strengthen me as a candidate.” MARIA REIST English freshman

“WRD would be a really good complement (to an English degree),” Zigmund said. “I think it would be more marketable in the real world.”

English freshman Maria Reist will be adding a major in WRD in hopes of building on to her skill set. “WRD brings a focus on writing and digital media, which I like,” Reist said. “I think it’ll strengthen me as a (job) candidate.” Many of Reist’s classes correspond with her WRD degree, so her course load will not have to increase much. Tom Marksbury, a senior lecturer in the WRD department, said the process of creating a new degree can take much longer than three years. “As far as these things go, it actually went pretty quickly,” Marksbury said. “(Other degrees) have taken ten years to create.” Marksbury believes many students will be interested in a WRD degree and that faculty are looking forward to adapting their courses for people in the major. “Now we have an audience,” Marksbury said. “We’ve been really excited about this all along.”

So shockingly, suddenly the Cats’ story ends UK was on the brink of history, but nobody remembers a runner-up DAVID SCHUH

Kernel columnist

ARLINGTON, Texas — The NCAA Tournament can be cruel. For teams like UK that make it to the biggest stage on college basketball’s biggest night, the end comes so abruptly that you can hardly process it. All of the sudden, the season is over. And at UK, where the only tolerable expectation is a championship, it’s worse. UK didn’t win a National Championship, and that’s all that matters. The initial thought when UK’s season came to a sobering end on Monday was how special this run has been. For three weeks,

the Cats shocked and thrilled a fan base that had all but given up on them. UK fans will remember this team fondly. They’ll remember the way the Cats made them feel on these March and April nights. They’ll remember freshman guard Aaron Harrison and his mind-blowing lategame heroics that will live on in UK lore. But after the confetti lands and the tears dry, one altruistic fact becomes clear. What will endure is the way they felt on the night of April 7, when the dream, so surprising and euphoric, ended without warning. The Cats were on the brink of history. It was a shock to even be in the title game. They had a chance to do what had never been done — win it all with five freshman starters. That dream, as exciting

and historic as it sounded, is now just a big what-if. That doesn’t last for UK fans. They remember championships in 1996 and ’98. Forgotten is the national runner-up that came in ’97. A banner will hang in Rupp Arena to honor this season. But it will not join the previous eight that shine in the spotlight when the lights dim and the Cats are introduced before each home game. The banner will say “2014 NCAA Runner Up.” But those don’t matter. They take up space. Fans in the streets of Lexington lost their feeling of euphoria in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Because for the first time in more than three weeks, the Cats had fallen short. The miraculous run had come to a screeching halt with the ultimate prize so frustratingly close.

A.J. Reed impressive at bat, on the mound for UK baseball Junior leads SEC in homers, RBIs KEVIN ERPENBECK Kernel columnist

Every baseball team needs a star player it can lean on, whether it’s a powerful hitter or a dominant pitcher. UK baseball has junior A.J. Reed, who shines at the plate and on the mound. The dual-threat player has garnered national attention this year. Reed is second in the nation in home runs (12) and leads the SEC in homers, as well as runs batted in with 39. All the while he holds a 1.93 earned run average and a 6-1 record on the mound. It shouldn’t be a surprise how well Reed has played this season. He was a preseason

All-America selection by Baseball America and was ranked as the 85th best player in the nation. His historic first half of 2014 earned him the title of Midseason NCAA Player of the Year by Perfect Game. “It’s a tremendous honor to get that recognition,” Reed said. “I’ve had a good first half to the season, and it’s a good starting point for me in the second half.” Reed has pitched at least five innings in every game he has started this season, including three games when he pitched eight innings. The Cats, who have won six of his eight pitching starts, know their victory chances are high when Reed takes the mound. UK is 15-4 in games when Reed has at least one RBI. That kind of pressure could be crushing for any nor-

no “we’ll get it next year.” These fans only deal in extremes. UK didn’t win the Na-

tional Championship. So shockingly, so suddenly, that’s how this story ends.

But not for Reed. “He’s steady at the mound and is able to carry it in the seventh and eighth innings for us,” head coach Gary Henderson said. “When he’s at the plate, he’s really good at driving the ball in the gap and producing RBIs. He’s having

GAMER Continued from page 1 5-of-15 free throws. UConn made all 10 of its free throws. An 8-0 run, spearheaded by a Young dunk brought UK within one point. But the Cats did not break UConn’s stranglehold on the lead throughout the rest of the game. Three-pointers by Napier and senior guard Niels Giffey answered UK’s run and

dragged the Huskies’ lead to two possessions with five minutes to play. Down eight points, Randle had a chance to cut into the lead with less than two minutes left in the game with a layup that hit the back of the rim and rolled out. On UConn’s next possession, the Huskies grabbed an offensive rebound and ran the clock down. UConn was the only team in the NCAA Tournament to outrebound the Cats. UK elected to play out a

final defensive possession that produced more free throws for UConn in the end. A pair of 3-point attempts by Aaron and Andrew Harrison did not fall as UK made one basket in the final 3:47. That last point differs from the Cats’ final minutes of the last four games in the tournament, where Aaron Harrison and Young hit 3pointers to lift UK to the lead. But on Monday, the shots of the past were just that – history.

18-year-olds so close to their ultimate goal. Maybe it was because UK wasn’t the underdog. For the first time in almost three weeks, the Cats were the favorite to win. Calipari said on Saturday that his team plays better from behind, that they don’t thrive when they are ahead. So playing an upstart underdog making a similarly surprising run could have altered UK’s mentality.

will get.” Mechanical engineering sophomore Elona Ryspayeva had been on State Street for several of the NCAA Tournament games, but she said that Monday night was different. “This is a different atmosphere,” Ryspayeva said. “We’re just really angry and

chanting things that are not for UK. We’re just chanting things about other schools because we’re upset.” BCTC student Nick Davis came to State Street because he was sure the Cats would pull out a win. “There is always next year,” Davis said. “I knew it’d be crazy either way.”

Those expectations, a shadow of those that surrounded seven freshmen before a game was played, may have become the Cats’ downfall. “We had our chances to win,” Calipari told his players after the loss. “Keep your head up.” The difference on Monday was that those chances went the other way. The momentum-swinging 3pointers, the crucial rebounds up for grabs — those 50/50 plays didn’t go the Cats way. And maybe that’s just the law of averages. Maybe three game-winning

shots to capture three crazy wins were all they could muster. Even for a team as talented as UK, if you play with fire for too long, it’ll eventually burn you. For three weeks this team lived dangerously. Just once, the Cats needed an easy win, something to show them that they could pull away, that they were the best team on the court. Maybe then they would have brought home championship No. 9. Instead, Monday night ended in heartbreak. At some point, the dream had to end.

UK defense hopes to build on last season’s success Dupree, Smith expected to emerge as leaders By Matt Overing movering@kykernel.com

Freshman guard James Young dunks the ball in one of UK’s few highlights in the second half.

Notebook: Young’s dunk worthy of highlight reel By Nick Gray ngray@kykernel.com

Young takes two Freshman guard James Young’s driving dunk over two UConn forwards was one of the few highlights for UK in the final eight minutes. Young drove between two UConn defenders and dunked the ball through contact. A foul was called and a championship game highlight was cemented. UK’s leading scorer jumpstarted his team’s final run of the season with the play. “We had a couple chances that we had to bring it back, and we just kept fighting,” Young said. Rex Chapman tweet stirs UK fans before game Former UK player Rex Chapman tweeted before the

game that UK head coach John Calipari was headed to coach the Los Angeles Lakers next season, “win or lose.” The tweet set UK fans abuzz on Twitter before and after the game on Monday. The Lakers, whose head coach Mike D’Antoni is under contract this season and next, denied speaking with any person about the head coaching job. Calipari told ESPN’s Jeannine Edwards after Monday’s game that he will be back at UK next season. UK outrebounded for first time in tournament The Cats have been in the top 10 in the country in rebounding throughout the season, but UConn did what only four other teams could do. The margin was one, but the Huskies out-rebounded a UK team that had a plus-nine rebounding

margin throughout the first five games of the NCAA Tournament. “We just kept fighting, and our guards kept us going today,” Huskies junior forward DeAndre Daniels said. Coming back? Several UK players met questions about their futures after the game, but decisions were not set. Freshman forward Julius Randle and freshman guard James Young have been projected as first-round picks by many draft experts. Both said it was too early after the season to make any determination on their draft statuses. Freshmen guards Aaron Harrison and Andrew Harrison said they have not thought about next season. “We’re kids,” Aaron Harrison said. “We talk about video games and girls.”

The pass rush was one of the few areas where UK performed well during the 2013 season. UK finished eighth in the SEC in total sacks, finishing ahead of teams that played 13 games, such as Alabama and Texas A&M. The Cats recorded 23 sacks on the season. Five players started on the defensive line last season. Seniors Donte Rumph and Mister Cobble held down the defensive tackle positions, while juniors Bud Dupree and Za’Darius Smith started on the ends. Sophomore Farrington Huguenin earned a start in Dupree’s place against Alabama. Rumph and Cobble will have to be replaced on the interior in 2014, but head coach Mark Stoops and his staff have planned ahead. Freshmen Regie Meant and Jacob Hyde redshirted in

2013, as did junior college transfer Melvin Lewis. “Regie Meant has looked good. Jacob Hyde has done some good things,” said defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot. “I think those guys have a bright future here.” Juniors Christian Coleman and Mike Douglas return, and junior college transfer Cory Johnson is expected to see the field as well. “It’s been a learning experience,” Johnson said of his transfer to UK. “It’s been hard. It’s a lot of hand signals. At JUCO, you just had to huddle up, (coaches) would tell you the play and you’d line up. You didn’t have to look over and see a guy doing the robot, trying to learn the play.” Johnson said that both Dupree and Smith are leaders on and off the field. “On the field, if we’re running station to station, I’m always lost,” Johnson said. “They see me, and say, ‘Come on, man. Over here.’”

The defense lost a senior leader from 2013 in Avery Williamson at linebacker. “Avery is tough to replace, but Bud has been very good in that role,” Stoops said. Eliot said that Dupree has been taking steps to fill the leadership void on defense. “I think he’s doing everything he needs to do to be that person,” Eliot said. Dupree and Smith are both gunning to lead the team in sacks in 2014. “It’s a competition between our guys,” Dupree said. “(Za’Darius) wants to lead the team in sacks, I want to lead the team in sacks. We all just want to challenge each other.” Behind Dupree and Smith, Huguenin and sophomore Jason Hatcher have stood out in practice. “I’ve been pleased with their progress,” Eliot said. “We’re going to continue to grow.”

Fan behavior not acceptable given UK’s history This tournament run has been sensational. Almost no one had the Cats getting past unbeaten Wichita State in the third round. But they did. And they kept going, even after Willie Cauley-Stein injured his ankle in the tournament opener and was unable to play past the Sweet 16. It all may have ended in heartbreak, but the Cats’ tournament run quickly evolved into something students will remember for years to come. That being said, Cal’s

tweak and Aaron Harrison’s last-second 3-pointers will not be the only memories students hold on to. About 35 injuries were treated, more than 80 fires extinguished and 21 people arrested near State Street after the Final Four victory over Wisconsin. Street signs were uprooted and stolen after the Sweet 16 victory over Louisville. Early reports following Monday’s loss to UConn revealed an even worse trend.

Students on State Street chanted “F--- UConn” as they ignited couches and items of clothing. Taking to the streets to celebrate UK’s stellar tournament performance would have been appropriate. But the aftermath of Monday’s game was no celebration — it was a dangerous riot. Up in smoke with the couches and clothing went UK’s reputation as the state’s greatest institution of higher learning. We do not yet know the

total sum of havoc wreaked, but we do know that students and fans went too far. Had John Calipari and his team brought home a ninth banner to Rupp Arena, it would have been a defining moment for the winningest program in college basketball and a leap toward UCLA’s record of 11 national championships — a reason to celebrate, no doubt. But it would not have been an excuse to commit arson or act violently. Neither

UK baseball to host Morehead State Riding Florida victory, Cats present challenge for in-state foe

Fresh off of a weekend series win over Florida, UK baseball will take to the field again Tuesday as it hosts Morehead State. No. 12 UK (22-10, 6-6 SEC) scored 36 runs against SEC foe Florida en route to two wins against the top-15 team. Over the season, the Cats are 7-4 against top-15 teams, with three of the wins coming against No. 1 teams. A.J. Reed, the SEC Player of the Week and Midseason National Player of the Year, and the Cats accounted for 50 hits against a Florida team that entered the game with a 2.94 earned run average. Out of the 50 hits were 15 extra-base hits and seven home runs, three of which came from Reed. Morehead State (15-16) will have a tough task as it faces Reed and UK, the SEC leader in batting average (.318), slugging (.476), runs

(284), home runs (30) and runs batted in (247). The Eagles head into Cliff Hagan Stadium off of a series win against Eastern Kentucky, but will face the daunting task of corralling the Cats’ offense. Morehead State’s pitching staff has a combined 6.37 ERA and has allowed 18 home runs. Standing in front of the Eagles is a UK lineup led by juniors Reed and Austin Cousino. Reed leads the team with a .377 average, 12 home runs and 39 RBIs. Cousino is batting .355 with three home runs and 25 RBIs. Senior catcher Micheal Thomas has hit .349 with six home runs and 33 RBIs. Junior third basemen Max Kuhn has belted four home runs and driven in 30 runs to go with his .333 average. Throughout the Cats’ lineup are

hitters who can change the course of the game. Junior Thomas Bernal has been on a tear, hitting .333 with 15 RBIs. Freshman JaVon Shelby hit .500 with seven RBIs last week.

Next Game Who: UK vs. Morehead State When: 6:30 p.m., Tuesday Where: Cliff Hagan Stadium The Eagles will rely on junior lefty Luke Schneider (1-2, 6.60 ERA) to slow down UK. The Cats will counter with sophomore lefty Ryne Combs (1-1, 3.54 ERA). First pitch is at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Cliff Hagan Stadium. STAFF REPORT

Senior shines, freshmen fumble UConn guard Shabazz Napier leads the Huskies to 4th NCAA title By Nick Gray ngray@kykernel.com

Aaron Harrison and Shabazz Napier scramble for the ball during the NCAA Championship at AT&T Stadium on Monday.

ARLINGTON, Texas — UConn senior guard Shabazz Napier played up to his American Athletic Conference Player of the Year moniker on Monday. Napier scored 22 points, including four 3-pointers, and he grabbed six rebounds as the lead man in the Huskies’ National Championship victory. His shiftiness offset his 5-inch height difference against UK guards. He created space for two long 3-pointers in the second half as the shot clock ticked toward zero. “He has a swagger about him, and he deserves it,” UK head coach John

Calipari said. “He did enough for them to win the game.” Napier also bothered UK’s guards on defense. UConn used man-to-man combined with zone to neutralize the Cats’ freshmen. “If you want to drive the lane, you have to do it through us,” UConn junior guard Ryan Boatright said. UK struggled to do so, turning the ball over 13 times in the process. Freshmen guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison were limited to a combined 15 points on 6-of-16 shooting from the field. “We jogged (on offense),” Calipari said. “Let somebody else bring it up and when you can catch it (in the frontcourt), now your size matters.”
