In years of walking Mill Creek Streamway Park, Ascension Hernandez has seen the occasional great blue heron — water lapping at lanky legs, rope-like neck forming a graceful S. But what the Shawnee resident saw a couple of weeks ago, on one of his first walks of this season, amazed him: In the highest branches of a towering white-barked sycamore tree, not one but five or more great blue herons and at least 10 hulking nests.

The heated debate leading up to a Lawrence smoking ban in 2004 is now being used as teaching tool by the Kansas Leadership Center. The debate was between those who believed a smoking ban would better protect public health and those who thought a ban infringed on the individual liberties of smokers and business owners. “It just creates a really rich discussion about leadership. They faced some interesting dilemmas,” said Ed O’Malley, Kansas Leadership Center president and CEO. About two years ago, the Kansas Leadership Center, a Wichita-based nonprofit established by the Kansas Health Foundation, hired Chris Green, a former Statehouse reporter for Harris News Service, to research and write about 10 communities that had faced great adversity while trying to solve various issues. His job was to get the behind-thescenes stories of what happened. Those interviewed were able to weigh in on the accuracy of his interpretation. Then, the stories were turned into case studies for others to learn from. Among the other communities studied: ● Salina, where the community worked to merge two leadership programs. ● Dodge City, where the First United Methodist Church wanted to engage the Latino population, but faced culture and language barriers. ● Greeley County, where the community needed more health care providers. The issues and whether they were resolved are not what’s important, O’Malley said. The case studies are about how who was at the table, what was discussed, and how decisions were made. “We think it does a great job of helping participants in our leadership programs really understand what it feels like to be in a deep, daunting challenge,” O’Malley said. “These aren’t made-up scenarios. These are actual Kansans doing actual things to try to make their state a better place.” Each year, the Kansas Leadership Center reaches nearly 1,000 Please see SMOKING, page 2A

Eat this, not that: Hot dogs healthier than rotisserie chicken By Karrey Britt

Hot dogs or rotisserie chicken? Hot dogs. That’s because they are relatively free of carcinogenic compounds, according to Kansas State University research. J. Scott Smith, professor of food chemistry, and his team studied ready-to-eat meat products to determine their levels of heterocyclic amines, or HCAs. These are

carcinogenic compounds found in meat that is fried, grilled or cooked at high temperatures. Studies have shown that humans who consume large amounts of HCAs in meat products have an increased risk for cancers. There was no data on ready-to-eat meats until now.

The KSU study focused on eight popular products: beef hot dogs, beef-pork-turkey hot dogs, deli roast beef, deli ham, deli turkey, fully cooked bacon, pepperoni and rotisserie chicken. Researchers prepared the meats according to directions. They found: ● Pepperoni had the least HCA content at 0.05 nanograms per gram. ● Hot dogs and deli meat, Please see HOT DOGS, page 2A

A group of birds may use the same rookery for decades, McGowan said. But viewers should keep their distance because colonies are vulnerable to disturbance. According to the Audubon Society, great blue herons may abandon rookeries or experience diminished reproductive success when disrupted, especially early in the breeding season. Shawnee Parks and Recreation Director Neil Holman said he hasn’t seen Shawnee’s rookery but always enjoys spotting solo herons in the city, including at Monticello Springs Park and around Nelson Island in the Kansas River. To maintain opportunities for residents to view wildlife like the herons, it’s important for Shawnee to maintain a healthy amount of green space, he said. “Once you scrape it all off and you build something, it’s gone,” Holman said. “We’re not building any more land. You want to be developing, you want to be a go-to city, but there needs to be some type of a balance.”

made a decision at that time.” Highberger’s leadership advice is to listen to what people have to say and to realize that nothing is a blackand-white issue. “Everything is a shade of gray,” he said. Dunfield said leaders need to tackle an issue with the understanding that there will never be a complete consensus. He also stressed the importance of setting deadlines. “Don’t allow issues to just kind of drag on indefinitely. From the beginning, we set a very clear timetable and we stuck to that and I think that is really important,” he said. Kingsley emphasizes research. He called leaders in other communities across the country that had implemented smoking bans to find out what had happened to businesses in their communities. He used his f indings to strengthen his argument for a smoking ban. Hack said good leadership is about having all of the stakeholders at the table and listening to their viewpoints. “I think we tend to follow the national model, which is

‘you are with me or you are wrong,’ and I don’t think that is a very positive approach to the daunting challenges that face communities,” she said. “We’ve got to have a different mindset.”

Lawrence case Lawrence was the Kansas Leadership Center’s first case study and has been used in leadership courses since summer 2009. Among those featured in the study are then-Mayor David Dunfield, City Commissioners Sue Hack and Boog Highberger, and Lawrence resident David Kingsley, a smoking ban proponent. Looking back, all agreed it was a very difficult time. They remember the criticism, and the toll it took on friendships. But only Highberger would have done things differently. He made a proposal to let the public vote on the smoking ban and then a day later changed his mind. He decided to vote for the smoking ban. “I probably would not have made the initial proposal,” he said. “I would have just bitten the bullet and

Hernandez is used to seeing hawks flying, squirrels scurrying, snakes slithering and robins chirping along the trail. But he said seeing a group of great blue herons in one spot was “something different.” Bill McGowan, outdoor education manager for Johnson County Park and Recreation, said he knew of just a few other great blue heron nesting spots in the county’s rural areas. “The rookeries are not all that common,” he said. “They just aren’t. And a lot of times they’re not in areas where people can see them.” Citing the “Stokes Guide to Bird Behavior,” McGowan said great blue herons typically begin courtship in March and soon start nestbuilding in isolated areas away from human settlement. They breed from about April to July, and during their eggs’ 28-day incubation period, both the male and the female sit on the nest.

Former professor a banana nut CAPITOL



U.S. airstrike role in Libya extended The U.S. agreed to NATO’s request for a 48-hour extension of American participation in coalition airstrikes against targets in Libya, and U.S. lawmakers cautioned Sunday the allies need to know more about the rebels fighting Moammar Gadhafi’s forces before providing them with weapons. Two weeks into the assault on Gadhafi, Republican lawmakers expressed concern that a stalemate could leave him in control of portions of Libya and with access to stockpiles of chemical weapons. The U.S. is shifting the combat role to Britain, France and other NATO allies, but American air power is still in demand. Air Force AC-130 gunships and A-10 Thunderbolts and Marine Corps AV-8B Harriers will continue to attack Gadhafi’s troops and other sites through this evening. These aircraft are among the most precise in the American arsenal. After Saturday, no U.S. combat aircraft were to fly strike missions over Libya unless NATO officials specifically asked and authorities in Washington gave their approval. NATO assumed full control last week from the U.S.-led international force for all aspects of the operation in Libya as authorized by U.N. resolutions that include an arms embargo, enforcing the no-fly zone and protecting civilians from Gadhafi’s forces.

Report details Dubai plane crash faults

AFTER NEARLY 50 YEARS OF COLLECTING BANANA-THEMED ITEMS, retired Kansas University professor of history Charles Stansifer has a room in his basement dedicated to his favorite fruit.

The cargo of a United Parcel Service plane that caught fire and crashed last year included lithium batteries that should have been declared as hazardous cargo, but weren’t, according to an accident report released Sunday by the Dubai government’s civil aviation authority. The report also paints a harrowing picture of two pilots struggling desperately to land their plane while running low on emergency oxygen and fighting smoke so thick they couldn’t see their flight instruments or change radio frequencies. The Boeing 747-400 crashed near the Dubai airport on Sept. 3 as the flight’s first officer attempted an emergency landing. Both pilots were killed. The report, which doesn’t identify the cause of the fire, is expected to raise questions about shipments of the batteries. The batteries can short-circuit and cause fires that burn hot enough to melt an airplane.

On Charles Stansifer’s wall hangs a master’s degree. It’s not in history or Spanish, his specialties. No, this degree is in bananaology, signed by Anna Banana herself in 1981. The framed paper is but a hint of what’s through the door it hangs next to. Stansifer, a former professor of history at Kansas University, keeps an extensive banana collection in a basement room. The bright yellow collection is almost 50 years’ worth of birthday gifts, Christmas presents and a few items he purchased himself. Shelves are lined with more than 1 ,000 bananathemed items, ranging from a harmonica to a compass to a Banana Blaster squirt gun.


Government appeals health care ruling The federal health care overhaul’s core requirement to make virtually all citizens buy health insurance or face tax penalties is constitutional because Congress has the authority to regulate interstate business, the Justice Department said in its appeal of a ruling that struck down the Obama administration’s signature legislation. The government’s 62-page motion filed Friday to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals argued that Congress had the power to enact the overhaul’s minimum coverage requirements because it is a “rational means of regulating the way participants in the health care market pay for their services.” The motion also warned other pieces of the overhaul, including a law that blocks insurers from denying coverage to people because of pre-existing conditions, would be “unworkable” without a minimum coverage provision. 3 | TOKYO

Engineers pinned their hopes on chemicals, sawdust and shredded newspaper to stop highly radioactive water pouring into the ocean from Japan’s tsunami-ravaged nuclear plant Sunday as officials said it will take several months to bring the crisis under control, the first time they have provided a timetable. Concrete already failed to stop the tainted water spewing from a crack in a maintenance pit, and the new mixture did not appear to be working either, but engineers said they were not abandoning it. The Fukushima Dai-ichi plant has been leaking radioactivity since the March 11 tsunami carved a path of destruction along Japan’s northeastern coast, killing as many as 25,000 people and knocking out key cooling systems that kept it from overheating. People living within 12 miles of the plant have been forced to abandon their homes.

Smoking raises the risk of breast cancer for healthy-weight and overweight women but not for those who are obese, new research suggests. It’s a first-of-its-kind finding, and even if other studies confirm it, it doesn’t mean that smoking is safe for women who weigh way too much, researchers say. “Smoking is a strong risk factor for many other diseases other than breast cancer,” including lung cancer and heart disease, said Juhua Luo, a West Virginia University scientist. She led the study and presented results Sunday at a meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research in Orlando, Fla. Obesity has long been recognized as a risk factor for breast cancer, but research tying smoking to breast cancer is much weaker. In March, Luo published results of a study that found a 16 percent higher risk of breast cancer among postmenopausal women who smoke or used to smoke versus those who never did.

Q: A:

Can camera film be recycled?

Mike Yoder, JournalWorld chief photographer, provided this answer: Yes, unprocessed and processed film can be recycled, but is usually done so in large quantities through facilities capable of silver recovery from the films. According to the Kodak Company, it is often impractical and more environmentally wasteful to transport such waste film to distant facilities except in large amounts.

Bible verses and discussion questions related to the episode. On a recent Sunday night, about 50 people sat at tables and munched on popcorn while watching an episode based on Andy misunderstanding the intent of his son, Opie, in wanting to hold onto his money and only contributing 3 cents to a school drive for underprivileged children. Near the end of the program, Andy finds out Opie wants to save his money to buy a new coat for a girl in his school, whose mother didn’t have enough money to buy her a new one. The Bible study that followed the show used a Scripture passage from Matthew 7 in which Jesus tells his listeners not to judge others. Attendees commented that the show sent a message of owning up to a mistake and asking for forgiveness. “The Andy Griffith Show,” Tritsch said, has retained a timelessness for a half century, in large part because of its themes that center on morality and values. “I’ve been a big ‘Mayberry’

fan all my life,” Tritsch, 57, said before the program began. “It’s a good, clean program you can show to church people. Some of the things on TV these days you can’t play in front of kids, and we have a lot of kids here tonight.” Tritsch said he found out about Andy Griffith-related Bible studies online. He purchased some Bible studies on the Internet and bought the corresponding episodes on eBay. The church also showed “The Andy Griffith Show” during Advent last December, with about 50 people attending each session.

The Rev. Jon Hullinger, Mater Dei pastor, assisted Tritsch with selecting “Andy Griffith Show” episodes that had Lenten themes. Charlotte Konrad, 87, a church member, said she attended the shows and discussions in December. “I enjoyed it,” Konrad said. “That’s why I came back.” Linda Finch, who said she was “over 60,” said she enjoyed watching “The Andy Griffith Show” when it first aired in the 1960s. “I like the shows, because they don’t have any sex or violence in them,” she said. “It’s good, clean fun.”

Even younger attendees picked up on the show’s message and themes. “I liked how it showed how Andy judged somebody before he knew all the facts about it,” said Jared Koopman, 12, a sixth-grader at Mater Dei School. “It showed that it isn’t good to jump to conclusions.”

Tax incentives proposal for Treanor to be discussed BOTTOM LINE City commissioners will consider approving several incentives for a proposed office building project at 1040 Vt.

BACKGROUND Lawrence-based Treanor Architects wants to make a $2 million addition to the building and move its headquarters to building. But the company is asking the city to use the Neighborhood Revitalization Program, which would allow a portion of the new properties for the expansion to be rebated back to Treanor. The plan calls for rebates to start at 95 percent and work

their way downward to zero over a 10-year period. Treanor also is asking the city convert an existing two-hour city parking lot into a 10-hour lot to accommodate the project. Treanor has proposed buying 50 long-term parking passes from the city at the current rate of $195 per permit. But Treanor would like the city to fix the cost of that permit at $195 for 10 years.

“That just absolutely fascinated me, and so I decided right at that moment that I was going to write my dissertation on the history of bananas,” Stansifer said. His plan was derailed when he learned that banana companies wouldn’t allow him to look at their documentation, but his love for the yellow fruit was born. “You couldn’t do the history of Central America without being interested in bananas,” he said. “That was essential.” Stansifer came to KU in 1962, and during his tenure he would become director for the Center of Latin American Studies and director of the History Department. That was also when he started collecting.

AFTER RETIRED KU HISTORY PROFESSOR Charles Stansifer started collecting banana-themed items, he started receiving banana objects from friends, family and former students. Each semester, Stansifer would give a banana lecture during his history of Central America class. BELOW, only a few items from Stansifer’s basement banana room are pictured.


There was a young girl from Savannah I think that her name was Susannah I’m sorry my pet Her face I forget But her figure was like a banana — Charles Stansifer


Stansifer picks up a banana-shaped bottle labeled “Tanana” — it’s suntan lotion. Farther down on the shelf is a toy monkey getting ready to eat a banana, and then a sign that says “This place is driving me bananas.” On the wall is a banana puzzle, a solid yellow rectangle broken up only by one small red banana sticker. “You never know what you’re going to see related to bananas,” Stansifer said. After Stansifer started collecting banana items, they became the gifts of choice given by friends and family. Former students would find banana objects on their trav-


It seemed to be working for Andrew, who, even though he isn’t supposed to talk in his role as Chester, interacted with hundreds of customers throughout his shift. “This confronts the disorder head-on,” said Burke, as many with autism spectrum disorders struggle with the

els, such as his two bananashaped harmonicas, marked “I went bananas in Philadelphia” and “I went bananas in Los Angeles.” He figures his students remembered his humorous banana lecture he would give every semester in his history of Central America class. “Obviously, the kids who took the class, they remembered about the bananas more than they did about the history of Central America,” he said. For the lecture, Stansifer would use a banana squeeze toy as a pointer, wear glasses with a banana nose attached and threatened to shoot anyone who came in late with a Banana Blaster — a banana water gun. His threat wasn’t just halfcocked. “Sure enough, the only one who came in late that day was the wife of the chancellor,” he said. “So I shot her.” Every square inch of his banana room is covered, and

interactions that for others seem casual and routine. Burke said the pilot program is looking at expanding using the feedback from the experiences of participants like Andrew. Though it’s only temporary employment, Burke said the opportunity is an “inroad” to employment for those with autism, who as a whole have only a 10 percent employment rate. “We’re looking at ‘is it feasible?’” Burke said of possible

Stansifer said he’s received lots of repeats, such as the Bananagrams game. “They began to fall into my lap from all my grandkids and other friends of mine,” he said. Most of Stansifer’s collection stays confined in his banana room, but items have started creeping out. A banana plant sits in the next room over, nicknamed the Costa Rica room, for Stansifer’s professional specialty at KU, from which he retired in 2005. Out in the main room of the basement are a few more banana novelty items, and upstairs is a thermometer from a banana warehouse. Most of it has to stay downstairs though, says Stansifer’s partner, Mary Miller, 83. She’s amused by his banana humor, though. “I think it’s pretty farfetched, especially the limericks,” she said. Stansifer doesn’t consider himself an expert on the history of bananas, but he knows he’s pegged himself as the banana guy. “I think my life is determined, to a certain extent, by bananas,” he said. — Reporter Brenna Hawley can be reached at 832-7217.

Safety board finds cracks in 3 Southwest planes 3rd day of Quran AFGHANISTAN

By Bob Christie

Associated Press Writer

YUMA , A RIZ . — Inspectors have found small, subsurface cracks in three more Southwest Airlines planes that are similar to those suspected of causing a jetliner to lose pressure and make a harrowing emergency landing in Arizona, a federal investigator said Sunday. Southwest said in statement that two of its Boeing 737-300s had cracks and will be evaluated and repaired before they are returned to service. A National Transportation Safety Board member told The Associated Press later Sunday that a third plane had been found with cracks developing. The cracks found in the three planes developed in two lines of riveted joints that run the length of the aircraft. Nineteen other Boeing 737300 planes inspected using a special test developed by the manufacturer showed no problems and will be returned to service. Checks on nearly 60 other jets are expected to be completed by late Tuesday, the airline said. That means flight cancelations will likely continue until the planes are back in the air. About 600 flights in all were canceled over the weekend. NTSB board member Robert Sumwalt said Boeing was developing a “service bulletin” for all 737-300 models with comparable flight

A MEMBER of the National Transportation Safety Board investigating the emergency landing of Southwest Airlines flight 812 cuts away a portion of the plane’s fuselage on Sunday in Yuma, Ariz. Federal records show cracks were found and repaired a year ago in the frame of the Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-300 that made an emergency landing at an Arizona military base after a hole was torn in the passenger cabin. Inspectors have found cracks in three more of Southwest’s planes. cycle time as the Arizona jet, which was 15 years old and had about 39,000 takeoff and landing cycles. There are 931 such models in service worldwide, 288 of which are in the U.S. fleet. Boeing’s bulletin would strongly suggest extensive checks of two lines of “lap joints” that run the length of the fuselage. The NTSB has not mandated the checks, but Sumwalt said the FAA will likely make them mandatory. Friday’s flight carrying 118

people rapidly lost cabin pressure after the plane’s fuselage ruptured — causing a 5-foot-long tear — just after takeoff from Phoenix. Passengers recalled tense minutes after the hole ruptured overhead with a blast and they fumbled frantically for oxygen masks. Pilots made a controlled descent from 34,400 feet into a southwestern Arizona military base. No one was seriously injured. The tear along a riveted “lap joint” near the roof of the

Boeing 737 above the midsection shows evidence of extensive cracking that hadn’t been discovered during routine maintenance before the flight — and probably wouldn’t have been unless mechanics specifically looked for it — officials said. “What we saw with Flight 812 was a new and unknown issue,” Mike Van de Ven, Southwest executive vice president and chief operating officer, said. “Prior to the event regarding Flight 812, we were in compliance with the FAAmandated and Boeing-recommended structural inspection requirements for that aircraft.“ Sumwalt said that the rip was a foot wide, and that it started along a joint where two sections of the plane’s skin are riveted together. An examination showed extensive pre-existing damage along the entire tear. The riveted joints that run the length of the plane were previously not believed to be a fatigue problem and not normally subjected to extensive checks, Sumwalt said. “Up to this point only visual inspections were required for 737s of this type because testing and analysis did not indicate that more extensive testing was necessary,” Sumwalt said. That will likely change after Friday’s incident, he said. The FAA declined to say if it was requiring other operators to check their aircraft for similar flaws.

GOP budget plan cuts more than $4 trillion By Douglass K. Daniel Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — A Republican plan for the 2012 budget would cut more than $4 trillion over the next decade, more than even the president’s debt commission proposed, with spending caps as well as changes in the Medicare and Medicaid health programs, its principal author said Sunday. The spending blueprint from Rep. Paul Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, is to be released Tuesday. It deals with the budget year that begins Oct. 1, not the current one that is the subject of negotiations aimed at preventing a partial government shutdown on Friday. In an interview with “Fox News Sunday,” Ryan said budget writers are working out the 2012 numbers with the Congressional Budget Office, but he said the overall spending reductions would come to “a lot more” than $4 trillion. The debt commission appointed by President Barack Obama recommended a plan that it said would achieve nearly $4 trillion in deficit reduction.

Ryan said Obama’s call for freezing nondefense discretionary spending actually locks in spending at high levels. Under the forthcoming GOP plan, Ryan said spending would return to 2008 levels and thus cut an additional $400 billion during 10 years. Speaking broadly about the proposal, Ryan said it would include: ● A “premium support system” for Medicare. In the future, older people would choose plans in the marketplace and the government would subsidize those plans. Ryan said that would differ from the voucher system he has proposed in the past. Those 55 and older would remain under the present Medicare system. Ryan acknowledged that the “premium support system” would shift more costs to Medicare recipients, especially what he called “wealthy seniors.” He did not define at what level someone would be considered wealthy. ● Block grants to states for Medicaid, the health program for the poor. Ryan disputed reports that the plan would seek savings of $1 trillion over 10 years from Medicaid, but would say only that

the details would be in the plan. “Medicare and Medicaid spending will go up every single year under our budget. They don’t just go up as much as they’re going right now,” he said. Ryan said governors have told members of Congress they want “the freedom to customize our Medicaid programs. ... We want to get governors freedom to do that.” ● A statutory cap on actual discretionary spending as a percentage of the economy. While Ryan did not specify the amount during the interview, he said it would be at a lower level than proposed by Obama and would return the government to its “historic size.” ● Pro-growth tax changes, including lower tax rates and broadening the tax base. Ryan said overhauling taxes would boost the economy. The plan will not propose tax increases. Ryan was a member of the bipartisan debt commission but voted against its final recommendations, saying they failed to reduce spending on health care. The commission also endorsed tax increases along with painful spending

Fixing heart valves without open-heart surgery supported in new study By Marilynn Marchione Associated Press Writer

NEW ORLEANS — Cardiologists are reporting a major advance: A long-awaited study suggests that many people with a bad aortic valve, the heart’s main gate, can avoid open-heart surgery and have a new one placed through a tube in an artery instead. There is a downside — a higher risk of stroke — and uncertainty about how long these valves will last. Still, doctors predicted that if the new valve wins federal approval, patients would embrace it as they did balloon angioplasty, which has allowed millions to have clogged arteries fixed without an operation. “The fact that it’s not openheart surgery sells itself, and the rest gets lost in the mix,” said Dr. Craig Smith, heart surgery chief at Columbia University and New YorkPresbyterian Hospital. He led the study and gave results Sunday at an American College of Cardiology conference in New Orleans. Dr. Michael Crawford, chairman of the meeting and

cardiology chief at the University of California, San Francisco, called it “a historic event” that would dramatically change practice. “As good as surgery is, patients just don’t want it,” he said. The aortic valve can stiffen and narrow with age, making the heart strain to push blood through it. Severe cases are treated with surgery to replace the valve, but that’s risky for many older people who have this problem. Without an operation, half die within two years. The study tested a way to wedge in a new valve without surgery. Dr. Edward McNulty, a cardiologist at the University of California, San Francisco, explained how it works: Through an artery in the groin or the chest, “a new heart valve is literally crimped on a balloon and advanced across the narrowed, older, diseased heart valve. The balloon is inflated and the new valve left in place.” A test of this gentler approach in people too sick for surgery found it greatly improved survival, doctors reported last fall. The new study involved nearly 700

people eligible but at high risk for surgery. Their median age was 84, and they were randomly assigned to get valves replaced through surgery or the new way. Here’s how much people dread this operation: 28 people withdrew from the study or refused treatment once they learned they had been placed in the surgery group. In the end, both groups did very well. After one year, about 24 percent of the artery patients and 27 percent of the surgery patients had died — comparable results in a study this size and considerably fewer than researchers had predicted. However, strokes and other neurological problems were twice as common in the arterytreated group — 8 percent versus 4 percent. Previous studies also found more strokes with the artery approach. Other complications were a trade-off: Major bleeding and new cases of a fluttering heartbeat called atrial fibrillation were more common after surgery; there were more blood-vessel problems with the artery approach.

cuts as necessary to dealing with the debt problem. “We’re not going to go down the path of raising taxes on people and raising taxes on the economy. We want to go after the source of the problem, and that is spending,” Ryan said Sunday. Ryan didn’t mention how the budget plan would address Social Security.

protests spread east

JALALABAD, AFGHANISTAN (AP) — Demonstrators battled police in southern Afghanistan’s main city on Sunday and took to the streets in the turbulent east for the first time as Western pleas failed to halt a third day of rage over a Florida pastor’s burning of the Quran. An officer was shot dead in a second day of clashes in the city of Kandahar, said provincial health director Qayum Pokhla. Two officers and 18 civilians were wounded, he said. In Jalalabad, the largest city in the east, hundreds of people blocked the main highway for three hours, shouting for U.S. troops to leave, burning an effigy of President Barack Obama and stomping on a drawing of a U.S. flag. The violence was set off by anger over the March 20 burning of the Quran by a Florida church — the same church whose pastor had threatened to do so last year on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, triggering worldwide outrage. The protests, which began

Friday, also appear to be fueled more broadly by the resentment that has been building for years in Afghanistan over the operations of Western military forces, blamed for killing and mistreating civilians, and international contractors, seen as enriching themselves and fueling corruption at the expense of ordinary Afghans. Thousands of demonstrators in the previously peaceful northern city of Mazar-iSharif poured into the streets after Friday’s Muslim prayer services and overran a U.N. compound, killing three U.N. staff members and four Nepalese guards. Military commander Gen. David Petraeus and the top NATO civilian representative in Afghanistan, Mark Sedwill, said they “hope the Afghan people understand that the actions of a small number of individuals, who have been extremely disrespectful to the holy Quran, are not representative of any of the countries of the international community who are in Afghanistan to help the Afghan people.”

Government arrogance triggers dispute


Special gift A local athlete’s attitude and accomplishments can teach a valuable lesson.


rady Tanner is Lawrence’s Special Olympian and, today, its greatest inspiration. Tanner, 31, a powerlifter, is a member of Team USA that will be competing in the Special Olympics World Games from June 25 to July 4 in Athens, Greece. Team USA includes more than 300 athletes from around the country. Tanner will face other powerlifters in three lifts and an overall competition. “I want to win four gold medals,” he recently told the Journal-World. Tanner believes he can do it. Tanner is now in San Diego for training camp with Team USA. His story is compelling. Tanner, who was born prematurely, had Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome, which impaired his speech and delayed his mental growth. But it also meant he was unable to think negatively, so for his whole life he’s only been positive and happy. He became an athlete, where it’s common to experience more downs that ups, so his personality is perfect for someone who is competing at the highest level. He was an average-sized teen until he started hanging out with the Haskell Indian Nations University football team in the off season. He tried weightlifting and discovered he had a special talent. He has been competing in Douglas County and Kansas Special Olympics since 2000 and has improved his skills each year, challenging himself to do better every time. “He goes as hard as he can as long as he can,” said Brady’s father, Gary. “He has no boundaries, no limits.” We can all learn something from Tanner: Try new things, and, if you like it, see where it takes you.

WASHINGTON — A dialectic of judicial deference and political arrogance is on display in St. Louis. When excessively deferential courts permit governmental arrogance, additional arrogance results as government explores the limits of judicial deference. As Jim Roos knows. He formed a nonprofit housing and community development corporation that provides residences for low-income people. Several times its properties have been seized by the city government, using “blight” as an excuse for transferring property to developers who can pay more taxes to the seizing government. The U.S. Supreme Court’s 2005 Kelo decision legitimized this. It permits governments to cite “blight” — a notoriously elastic concept, sometimes denoting nothing more than chipped paint or cracked sidewalks — to justify seizing property for the “public use” of enriching those governments. Roos responded by painting on the side of one of his buildings a large mural — a slash through a red circle containing the words “End Eminent Domain Abuse.” The government that had provoked him declared his sign “illegal” and demanded that he seek a permit for it. He did. Then the government denied the permit. The St. Louis sign code puts the burden on the citizen to justify his or her speech rather than on the government to justify limiting speech. And the code exempts certain kinds of signs from requiring permits. These

has, she says, been inverted: Citizens are required to convince the courts that laws restricting liberty are ‘irrational’; government should be required to articulate justifications for limiting liberty.”

include works of art, flags of nations, states or cities, symbols or crests of religious, fraternal or professional organizations. And, of course, the government exempted political signs. So the exempted categories are defined by the signs’ content. The Institute for Justice, a libertarian public interest law firm defending Roos, notes that signs may be the oldest form of mass communication — Gutenberg made advertising posters — and they remain an inexpensive means of communicating with fellow citizens. St. Louis says it regulates signs for “aesthetic” reasons and to promote

traffic safety, but admits it has no guidelines for the bureaucrats exercising aesthetic discretion and no empirical evidence connecting signs with traffic risks. And why would Roos’ mural be less aesthetic and more distracting to drivers than, say, a sign — exempted from any permit requirement — urging the election of the kind of city officials who enjoy censoring Roos? St. Louis is not the problem; government is. Many people go into it because they enjoy bossing people around. Surely this is why a court had to overturn a decision by the government of Glendale, Ohio, when it threatened a man with fines and jail because he put a “for sale” sign in his car parked in front of his house. The city said people might be distracted by the sign and walk into traffic. St. Louis Alderman Phyllis Young is distressed that Roos’ speech might escape government control: “If this sign is allowed to remain, then anyone with property along any thoroughfare can paint signs indicating the opinion or current matter relevant to the owner to influence passersby with no control by any City agency. The precedent should not be allowed.” The alderman’s horror of uncontrolled speech is an example of what Elizabeth Price Foley, law professor at Florida International University, calls “an ineluctable byproduct of disregarding the morality of American law.” In her book “Liberty for All” (2006, Yale), she says the grow-

ing exercise of legislative power “in the name of majoritarian whims” has eroded America’s “twin foundational presumptions” — limited government and residual individual sovereignty. The original constitutional structure has, she says, been inverted: Citizens are required to convince the courts that laws restricting liberty are “irrational”; government should be required to articulate justifications for limiting liberty. The Founders’ goal — in John Adams’ formulation, a nation of “laws, and not of men” — has, Foley believes, “been taken much too far.” She thinks we have become a nation of laws, and not of liberty. We are, she notes, a nation with local laws prohibiting the wearing of hats in theaters or courtrooms, catching fish with one’s bare hands, carrying a slingshot, teaching others about polygamy, having a garage sale for more than two days a year, serving alcohol within a mile of a religious camp meeting. ... The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is considering whether the city of St. Louis can regulate what Roos can say concerning what the government has done to him. This case, which arises from unwise judicial deference to city governments wielding the power of eminent domain, demonstrates the dialectic of courts inciting governmental arrogance by deferring to it. So judicial deference often is dereliction of judicial duty. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.



From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for April 4, 1911: YEARS “On one of their AGO recent hikes the IN 1911 Lutheran Boys League visited the old forgotten cemetery along the Santa Fe about two miles west of town. The burying ground is almost concealed in a neglected clump of trees and underbrush, and is remembered by only the earliest Lawrence pioneers. It covers about a half acre of ground and still had fifteen stones standing. … There is in this cemetery the grave of a soldier which has probably not been remembered on Decoration Day for years. The soldier was Robert L. Hughes, a member of the 1st Reg. Kansas Volunteers who died in 1862. The Lutheran boys formed a military file around the grave and planted their own tiny emblem of the stars and stripes on its sunken surface.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

MLK fought for labor rights now under attack Once upon a long time ago, a tired man faced an audience of public workers. They were on a wildcat strike, demanding the right to bargain collectively and to have the city for which they worked automatically deduct union dues from their paychecks. The city’s conservative mayor had flatly refused these demands. “You are doing many things here in this struggle,” the tired man assured them. “You are demanding that this city will respect the dignity of labor.” Too often, he said, folks looked down on people like them, people who did menial or unglamorous work. But he encouraged them not to bemoan their humble state. “All labor has dignity,” he said. Forty-three years ago today, that man was shot from ambush and killed in Memphis, Tenn. Martin Luther King’s last public actions were in defense of labor and union rights. One wonders, then, what he would say of Wisconsin. Or Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Florida or any of the other places where, like a contagion, the move to weaken or effectively outlaw unions has spread. One wonders what he would make of a conservative governing ethos that now defines public employees — teachers, police officers, firefighters — as the enemy.

it tell you that “someWhat’s of us are on the

offensive against working people, but breathe scarcely a peep when a giant corporation somehow slips through government-provided loopholes, paying no taxes? If need is a character flaw, what, then, is greed?”

Actually, we need not wonder what King would have said, because he already said it. In the speech quoted above, he warned that if America did not use its vast wealth to ensure its people “the basic necessities of life,” America was going to hell. The Baptist preacher in him reared up then, and his voice sang thunder. For all the nation’s

achievements, he roared, for all its mighty airplanes, submarines and bridges, “It seems that I can hear the God of the universe saying, ‘Even though you have done all that, I was hungry and you fed me not. I was naked and you clothed me not. The children of my sons and daughters were in need of economic security and you didn’t provide it for them.”’ It will come as a surprise to some that the civil rights leader was also a labor leader, but he was. He had this in common with Asa Philip Randolph, who suffered long years of privation to establish the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. And with Walter Reuther, brutally beaten when he organized sitdown strikes that helped solidify the United Automobile Workers. And with Crystal Lee Sutton, inspiration for the movie “Norma Rae,” who lost her job for trying to unionize a textile plant in Roanoke Rapids, N.C. These people and many others fought to win the rights now being taken away. Granted, those rights have sometimes been abused — used to shelter the incompetent or reward the greedy. But to whatever degree our workplaces are not filled with children working adult hours, to whatever degree an employer is required to provide a clean and

safe workplace, break time, sick time or fair wages, that also reflects organized labor’s legacy. It is instructive that this campaign to roll back that legacy is contemporaneous with a New York Times report on how General Electric earned $14.2 billion in profit last year, yet paid no U.S. taxes. Indeed, the Times says, GE netted a tax benefit of $3.2 billion. What’s it tell you that some of us are on the offensive against working people, but breathe scarcely a peep when a giant corporation somehow slips through government-provided loopholes, paying no taxes? If need is a character flaw, what, then, is greed? In some sense, we have traveled 43 years forward to get back where we were in 1968. King would doubtless find that sobering. One is reminded of the axiom about those who will not learn from history. One is reminded of the quote about the price of freedom. And one is reminded of a song Billy Preston sang in the summer of 1973. “Will it go round in circles?” he asked. Apparently, it already has. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Feds taking aim at violent repeat offenders By Bill Draper Associated Press Writer

KANSAS CITY , K AN . — Federal prosecutors in Kansas said last week they are getting tough with convicted felons who commit new gun crimes after the U.S. attorney general told U.S. attorneys across the country to do whatever it takes to remove violent criminals from the streets. Barry Grissom, U.S. attorney for Kansas, said the aim of the initiative targeting violent repeat offenders is to increase community safety and protection for law enforcement officers. He said it’s just a fact of life that some hardened criminals will never change their ways, so they need to be dealt as severely as federal law will allow. “That person is not going to be rehabilitated,” Grissom said. “They’ll live a lifestyle of crime until he or she draws their last breath.” At a news conference last week, Grissom said Attorney General Eric Holder issued the directive after 27 officers

were killed nationwide in the past 15 months. Grissom said it’s time to stop the revolving door through which violent offenders are sentenced at the state level, serve modest sentences and then are released back into the community, where some revert to the lifestyles that landed them in prison in the first place. “I want to send a message,” Grissom said. “If you’re using a gun to commit a crime, you’re the target. If you’re caught and convicted, you’re going to federal prison.” The U.S. attorney said he has asked county prosecutors across the state to turn over to his office cases in which a convicted felon is charged with new violent crimes. “What the attorney general asked us to do, ’give us a list of folks who have been repeat offenders,’” Grissom said. “If you have them, why not give them to us?” Not only are prison sentences at the federal level far harsher than punishment under state laws for the same crimes, but they come with no chance for parole.

Guard picks KU over mom’s beloved MU

Woodland CAN win Masters

Horton Smith won the first Masters, in 1934, and Gene Sarazen, who did not play the year before, won in 1935. Fortyfour years later, Fuzzy Zoeller was fitted for the green jacket in his Augusta National debut. Since Zoeller is the only Masters novice to win in the past 75 years, it’s often stated that firsttime participants can’t be considered serious contenders. The pressure is too great, the course too mysterious, the first-time Masters golfer too jacked up to play his normal game. Nonsense. It can be done. Until this year, no Final Four had been played without at least one No. 1 or No. 2 seed. Tonight, UConn, the No. 3 seed from the West, faces Butler, the No. 8 seed from the Southeast, for the national title. First-timers don’t win the Masters in much the same way geldings don’t win at Churchill Downs. Heading into the 2009 Kentucky Derby, just one gelding had won since 1929. No wonder Mine That Bird was a 50-to-1 shot. That day’s Daily Racing Form included the words: “Well, there is a good chance he’ll make someone happy as he’s the favorite in the finish-last pool,” of Mine That Bird. Perhaps someone posted that on the bulletin board in the horse’s stable to motivate him. We’ll never know. Unlike Mr. Ed, Mine That Bird doesn’t talk to the media. What we do know about him is that he finished first, paying those who plunked $2 down on him $103.20. Gary Woodland can’t win The Masters in much the same fashion the fourth-place finisher in the Colonial Athletic Association couldn’t reach the Final Four by defeating schools from the Pac-10, Big East, Big Ten, ACC and Big 12. Thinking Phil Mickelson could slip the green jacket onto Woodland is as preposterous as dreaming about Butler University getting to consecutive Final Fours with a coach who would get carded at every bar in Lawrence and a star who looks more like Napoleon Dynamite than a physical Div. I post player. Nobody figured Rocky Balboa could go the distance again in his rematch with Apollo Creed, much less win, but win he did. Remember, truth is stranger than fiction. Woodland, former Kansas University golfer and native of Topeka, can win The Masters. Why? Because he’s in the field. He made it by winning the Transitions in Orlando and almost made it earlier in the year, but lost a playoff to Jhonny Vegas in the Bob Hope Classic. Woodland, 26, ranks fourth on the money list with $1,964,130 in 2011 earnings. He has played nine events and finished in the top six four times. He finished tied for 13th, 10 strokes behind the winner, Mickelson, in the Houston Open that ended Sunday. Thirty holes into it, Woodland was 1over par and had carded four bogeys and two double-bogeys. In his final 42 holes, he carded one bogey and was 11-under par. On Sunday, he had four birdies and 14 pars. What a steady round to ride into The Masters. Woodland made the cut in the 2009 U.S. Open, firing a second-round 66 at Beth Page Black. A quadruple-bogey 8 on No. 5 spoiled his final round, but that was then. He’s doing a much better job of avoiding big numbers now. Mickelson’s the favorite, but Woodland has a tee time at Augusta, and that means he has a shot.

BEN MCLEMORE MEETS WITH THE MEDIA after announcing his decision Sunday to attend Kansas University.

HOFFMAN ESTATES, ILL. — Sitting in a dark meeting room in the basement of Sears Centre, with his mom, Sonya, to his left and AAU coach, Darius Cobb, to his right, Ben McLemore finally put an end to his college recruitment late Sunday afternoon in this Chicago suburb. “Rock Chalk Jayhawk,” McLemore exclaimed in choosing Kansas University over rival Missouri. McLemore, a 6-foot-5 senior guard from St. Louis, announced his choice after scoring 14 points — two off a vicious dunk in overtime — in the Black Team’s 109100 victory over the White

squad in the NeXt All-America Classic. McLemore entered the interview room with his cousin, Richard Boyd, and girlfriend, Tricia, who added some levity to the situation. Richard wore a Mizzou T-shirt (he stressed later he’s a KU fan, but needed to wear MU’s colors to pull off the joke) and Tricia a KU top. The two applauded as McLemore announced his choice of the Jayhawks. “I had a good high school senior year (first at Oak Hill Academy, where he was dismissed for violating undisclosed team rules, then at Houston’s Christian Life Center). I feel I played hard all year,” McLemore said in beginning the news conference.


Gone with the wind

“I narrowed it down to Kansas and Missouri. I sat down and talked to my mom last night. It was a tough decision, but next year I’ll be at Kansas University.” McLemore visited KU for the 2010 Late Night in the Phog and later made a trip to Columbia, Mo. It was the KU trip that first started to soften his mom, a Mizzou fan who goes by the nickname “Peaches.” “It was great. The love was there. The excitement was there. I felt it is where he needed to be,” Sonya said of KU. “The crowd was nice. The people were nice. It felt comfortable.” Still, she admitted there were Please see McLEMORE, page 3B

KANSAS LEFT FIELDER JIMMY WATERS WATCHES THE BALL SAIL over his head and the fence for a Baylor home run. KU fell to the Bears, 12-4, on Sunday at Hoglund Ballpark.

Baylor’s 12-4 blowout ends KU’s hope for sweep By Matt Tait

Kansas University took the baseball field in position to sweep a Top-25 conference foe and left it wondering why that wasn’t enough to fire the Jayhawks up. Sunday at Hoglund Ballpark, KU fell to No. 19 Baylor, 12-4, in a series finale in which the Jayhawks never threatened. “I was disappointed in our level of competitiveness today,” KU coach Ritch Price said. “We could’ve done something really special today and made a statement.” Instead, it was the Bears who did

that, scoring 12 runs on 13 hits, including four home runs, to improve to 17-12 overall, 4-5 in Big 12 play, while dropping the Jayhawks to 12-15 and 4-5. “From the first inning, putting up a two-spot, it seemed like they were kind of energized,” said KU catcher James Stanfield, who went 2-for-5 and was the only Jayhawk to record more than one hit. “They really didn’t want to get swept.” Baylor scored two runs in the top of the first, on RBIs from Cal Towey and Dan Evatt, and didn’t seem to have any interest in slowing down. The Bears added three in the third, one in the fourth, sixth and seventh, three more in the

eighth and a final run in the ninth. That last run came in the form of a solo home run from Evatt, one of four Bears who hit home runs despite a 20-plus mile-per-hour wind blowing in from right field. While the Bears knocked the ball to all parts of the field, the Jayhawks struggled to string hits together. Despite giving up two runs out of the gate, KU loaded the bases in the bottom of the first, but could not push a run across. “I think I was most disappointed in the at-bats we had early,” Price said. “We squandered a lot of opportunities to score. If we could Please see BASEBALL, page 3B

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Tim Collins smelled like a brewery. He was supposed to. The diminutive rookie lefthander threw three innings of two-hit relief and got his first major-league victory Sunday when Matt Treanor hit a threerun homer with two outs in the 13th inning to lift the Kansas City Royals over the Los Angeles Angels and their ineffective bullpen, 12-9. As soon as Collins got in the clubhouse, he was treated to a beer shower by teammates who had just beaten the Angels in their final at-bat for the third day in a row. “They got me good,” said Collins, who had five strikeouts. “It was probably the best shower of my life. It was awesome.” The Royals hit three home runs on the windy afternoon, and the Angels hit five, including two by Howie Kendrick. Treanor, who came over from Texas in the last week of spring training, drove a breaking ball from Jason Bulger (0-1), the eighth Angels pitcher, to leftcenter. All three runs were unearned because the first batter of the inning reached base on Bulger’s error trying to cover first base. “We saw the ball flying a bit today,” Treanor said. “It’s good for us that ours was the last one hit. It was a battle, really.” The five home runs were the most for Los Angeles in almost two years. Maicer Izturis, Bobby Abreu and Alberto Callaspo also connected for the Angels, who slugged their way out of a 5-0 hole only to see their bullpen falter for the third day in a row. Abreu finished with five hits. ● Box score on page 4B

• Who will win the NCAA men’s crown, Connecticut or Butler?



Late charge lifts Harvick in Virginia MARTINSVILLE, VA. (AP) — It was supposed to be a showdown between Denny Hamlin and Jimmie Johnson, the only two drivers able to win at tricky Martinsville Speedway of late. Instead, the end of Sunday’s race became a battle among the unexpected. First it was Kyle Busch, a master at seemingly every short track except this one, in the lead. Then, with a bump to get to the front came Dale Earnhardt Jr., loser of 99 consecutive races. But closing quickly was Kevin Harvick, driving for a Richard Childress Racing team that hadn’t won at Martinsville since 1995. The race went to Harvick for the second consecutive week in another come-from-nowhere vic-

tory. He passed Earnhardt with four laps remaining and knew denying NASCAR’s most popular driver the win might not have been, well, popular. “As I was catching him, I’m like, ‘Man, I’m going to be the bad guy here,”’ Harvick said. “I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do. I know the fans want to see him win. I want to see him win. It would be great for the sport, and I think today went a long ways to showing how competitive (Earnhardt) can be and that’s what we need. We all need him to win. “But I’m not going to back down.” Earnhardt settled for second and still has not won since Michigan in June 2008, his first season with Hendrick Motorsports. But he’s running much better this sea-


In tonight’s NCAA title, root for Butler By David Teel Daily Press (Newport News, Va.)

HOUSTON — Richmond and Cleveland State were the 1980s pioneers, charming and obscure underdogs who crashed the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16. Loyola Marymount, Rhode Island and Gonzaga went a step beyond during the ’90s, reaching the Elite Eight. But bankrolled by television and their Div. I-A football programs, the power-conference alpha pups ruled the Final Four like the Castro family does Cuba. Until George Mason in 2006. Until Butler in 2010. Until VCU and Butler this year. Yet one thing is missing: a national championship. Butler attempts to fill that void tonight when it faces Connecticut in the title game at Reliant Stadium, and here’s hoping coach Brad Stevens and Co., close the deal. For themselves, a year after their agonizing loss to Duke in the tournament final. For the so-called mid-majors, the programs with undersized budgets and oversized dreams. And for college basketball, which could do without a national champion that violated NCAA recruiting standards. The NCAA in late February restricted UConn’s scholarships and suspended coach Jim Calhoun for three games next season. The Huskies’ sin: Prospect Nate Miles received $6,000 in improper benefits from an agent who was also a UConn booster. Calhoun insisted he was unaware of the payments, but the NCAA cited him for failing to promote an atmosphere of compliance. Last week, however, Miles told the New York Times that Calhoun was aware. Handing the championship bling to Calhoun would be the NCAA’s most awkward trophy presentation since UNLV and Jerry Tarkanian squashed Duke in 1990. But even if you ignore the Dudley DoRight versus Snidely Whiplash morality play, Butler’s quest merits embracing. Same would have applied were VCU in the final. “College basketball’s evolved over the past two, three decades,” Rams coach Shaka Smart said after Saturday’s 70-62 loss to Butler. “And ... with the rise of grass-roots (summer) basketball, these guys have played against all the good players ... from all the major conferences and ... so they’re not afraid.” No one fit the mold like Butler. The Bulldogs returned six of their top nine players, and that seasoning showed in tournament victories over BCS programs Pittsburgh, Wisconsin and Florida. “I’m not surprised,” Smart said of Butler’s return to the title game. Stevens is 34, half Calhoun’s age, and appreciates his Bulldogs’ little-man appeal. “I’m a fan of teams like Butler in other sports,” he said. “The next thing I’m moving on to is the Masters, and I’m hoping I find somebody who I don’t know anything about who wins at the end so I can root for them. It’s the fun thing about sports, and it’s fun to be the team that everybody is talking about in that light.” But for decades, convention has held that the Butlers and Masons and VCUs face too many roadblocks, that they can’t win it all. “Certainly there are a lot of reasons to say you can’t,” Stevens said. “But it’s a lot more fun to say you can, and it’s a lot more fun to believe.” Late tonight, all of college basketball may have to believe as well.

son, and Sunday pushed him to eighth in the standings, the highest he’s been since Texas this time last year. “I am frustrated. I got close,” Earnhardt said. “I ain’t won in a long time. I was thinking at the end I was meant to win the damn race.” Busch was third. And the favorites? Well, they were nowhere near the leaders during the action-packed final 20 laps. Hamlin and Johnson had combined to win the last nine races at Martinsville, and ran most of the day as if one of them would again make the trip to Victory Lane.

DAYTON, OHIO — Archie Miller was hired Sunday to lead the Dayton basketball program, less than a week after Brian Gregory left to take over at Georgia Tech. The 32-year-old Miller has been associate head coach the last two seasons for older brother Sean Miller at Arizona.

He also was one of Thad Matta’s assistants at Ohio State for two years before joining his brother’s staff.

TENNIS Red-hot Djokovic outlasts Nadal KEY BISCAYNE — Novak Djokovic won his fourth consecutive tournament Sunday, beating top-ranked Rafael Nadal 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4) in a grueling final at the Sony Ericsson Open. Djokovic has won 26 consecutive matches since December, and his record of 24-0 in 2011 is the best to begin a year since Ivan Lendl started 25-0 in 1986. The No. 2-ranked Djokovic was pushed the distance by Nadal on a sunny, 85-degree 1 afternoon. They played for nearly 3 ⁄2 hours, and it was Djokovic who looked fresher at the finish.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL New McCoy shines in UT scrimmage AUSTIN, TEXAS — There’s a new McCoy at Texas and it was his turn to have a big day for the Longhorns. The question now is whether Case McCoy, younger brother of former Texas quarterback Colt McCoy, can make a push to be the Longhorns’ No. 1 QB next fall. McCoy was the standout offensive player Sunday in Texas’ annual spring scrimmage, passing for 124 yards and a touchdown. Most of the yards and the score came with the second-team offense against the first-team defense. Garrett Gilbert, the starter in Texas’ disastrous 5-7 season in 2010, was 8-of-15 for 76 yards and an interception. The turnover set up McCoy’s TD pass.

Texas officially unveils network GOLF Mickelson wins Masters tuneup HUMBLE, TEXAS — Phil Mickelson feels pretty confident about his game heading into the Masters. The defending champion at Augusta outdueled Scott Verplank on Sunday to win the Houston Open by three shots, his first victory since earning his third green jacket last April. And it comes with a notable distinction. The win moved Mickelson’s world ranking to No. 3, while Tiger Woods dropped to No. 7. It’s the first time Mickelson has been ahead of Woods in the ranking since the week before Woods won the 1997 Masters for his first major championship. “It feels really good for me to have played well and gained some momentum heading into next week,” Mickelson said. “I needed to have a week where I kind of put it together.” The 40-year-old Mickelson shot a 7-under 65, the lowest closing score by a winner this year, to finish at 20 under. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland placed in a tie for 13th with a final round of 68 (10 under total).

Lewis holds off defending champ RANCHO MIRAGE, CALIF. — Stacy Lewis held off defending champion Yani Tseng to win the Kraft Nabisco Championship by three strokes Sunday, earning her first LPGA Tour title in the year’s first major. Lewis shot a 3-under 69 to finish at 13under 275, rallying from an early two-stroke deficit.

It had been nicknamed the “Longhorn Network” when first announced and officials agreed the name best captured the brand of the university.

some “friendly fights” in the family in the months leading up to the decision, which became easy when MU coach Mike Anderson recently took the Arkansas job. “It was tough. Really tough,” mom said of the discussions with her son. “He came to me and said, ‘KU is where I want to go.’ As a mother, I support him.” Truth be known, Ben this past year needed to be sold on KU as well. He said KU’s coaches did a good job telling him how he’d fit into the system. He’s been around the program, having attended KU’s Elite camp the past four summers. “Really, people don’t know this, but I grew up loving Mizzou,” Ben said. “My mom is a big fan of Mizzou. When Kansas came to the table, I knew they were a good program, but the decision was still back and forth. We decided it was the best place for me.” Ben’s little brother, Kevin, a 16-year-old sophomore at St. Louis’ Normandy High, confirmed it was tough watching his brother wrestle over the decision between KU and his mom’s love, Mizzou. “Talking with him it was just big emotion all the time,” Kevin said. “I was rooting for both schools. My mom always watches Mizzou when they play on TV. The way it worked out, I feel great. He played great today and then picked a great school. It was a good choice and a great day for my brother.” McLemore’s cousin, Richard, said during all-star game festivities, “We were kept in suspense all weekend. In my opinion, what made up his mind was when Missouri’s coach left for Arkansas. Ben asked him if he was staying, and he (Anderson) told him yes. That all made it easier on him. “Let everybody know I’m a Kansas fan,” Richard added. “I took the Missouri shirt off right away (at news conference).” AAU coach Cobb believes McLemore will be able to fit in at KU right away. “Look up in the dictionary ‘team player’ and it’s Ben,” Cobb said. “He could score 30, 40 (he averaged 16 points and seven boards at his Houston high school), but I’ve seen him defer to get other people shots. “The kid is so humble. If you tell him to be the man, he’ll be the man. If you tell him you want him to red-shirt, he’ll red-shirt. The way I describe him is, Ben is a role player. If you need him to get 30, he’ll get 30. If you need shut-down defense, he defends. He is one of the most athletic kids in the country.” McLemore was asked about his upcoming role at KU. “You do not go in college thinking you are going to get a spot,” said’s No. 17-rated player nationally. “You go in and work every day. I will be in the gym 24-7 until I get there. When I get there, I will go hard or go home.” Coach Cobb said he’ll definitely play hard and do what’s asked of him. “If you show me a person who doesn’t like Ben, I will show you a person who has a problem,” Cobb said, adding that he believes McLemore will have no problem qualifying for a scholarship.

Notes Just 300 fans attended the all-star game in 9,700-seat Sears Centre. ... Jamari Traylor, a 6-7 forward from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., scored 11 points with five rebounds for the winning team. He has a list of KU, St. John’s, Mississippi State and Indiana. He said he’ll visit KU in coming weeks. ... The game was not televised on CBS Sports Network as planned. Officials said before the game the sponsors didn’t provide the money for the network show. Nobody was informed of the change in plans until right before tipoff. ... McLemore will sign in the April signing period. … Kansas University basketball signee Naadir Tharpe reported on his Twitter account Sunday that he scored 10 points and had eight assists in the East’s 106103 loss to the West in Saturday’s All-America high school all star game in Houston.

KU softball falls to NU By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

If it seems like Kansas University’s softball team is playing a ranked team every weekend, it’s because it is. For the second straight day, No. 16 Nebraska’s Ashley Hagemann shut down KU’s lineup, this time in a 7-1 NU triumph on Sunday afternoon at Arrocha Ballpark. A day after being limited to one hit in a shutout by Hagemann, KU scraped together five hits Sunday, including a second-inning homer by Liz Kocon that gave KU a 1-0 lead. “Yesterday, we gave up,” Kansas coach Megan Smith said. “Today we fought, at least.” Neither the Jayhawks’ confidence, nor their mood has wavered — even considering their 0-6 start to begin conference play, and the current stretch in which they’ve dropped seven of their last eight games. The Big 12 Conference — with eight teams currently ranked in the Top 25 — is especially stacked this year, but Smith is intent on proving that KU (27-10 overall, 0-6 Big 12) can contend with anyone. Keep fighting, she stressed. Keep improving. Keep rebuilding the program, as she put it. “They have to understand that there are going to be bad days,” Smith said. “And we’re


just have gotten a base hit there, it’s a tie ballgame, and we’re back in it.” Asked to defend their uninspired play, the Jayhawks had few answers. “I can’t explain how I can’t we have two explain how really great games and we have then one two really where it great seems like games and everything’s then one going wrong,” Stan- where it f ield said. seems like “We played really great everything’s (Friday and going Saturday), wrong.” and you can’t just shove that under — KU’s James the rug. But it Stanfield is disappointing to end the series like this. Like skip said, ‘This was a good weekend, but it could’ve been a great one.’” Added first baseman Zac Elgie: “We have so many young guys, so many inexperienced people. It kind of just takes a little bit to get everybody on the same page because it really is a whole team effort. We gotta pitch well, we gotta play defense, a n d we go t t a sw i n g t h e bats.” Freshman pitcher Alex Cox (0-3) took the loss for the Jayhawks. The Jayhawks sent 14 batters to the plate — nine starters and five pinch-hitters

runs in the fourth, fifth and six to pull ahead, 3-1. The Huskers put the game away with a four-run sixth inning, but the 3-1 edge was plenty for Hagemann, who settled in after Kocon’s homer and went the distance while striking out 11 to earn her 22nd win. After a torrid start at the plate to begin the season, KU’s bats have cooled considerably. The Jayhawks are hitting only .172 with 10 runs scored in their six conference games. Smith was complimentary of NU’s pitching, but at the same time emphasized her team can hit. The Jayhawks, still batting .298 as a team with 41 homers, know they can swing it, too. “I think our eyes our just getting a little too big," Kocon said. "We just need to go back to the basics of hitting and stay tight. And not swing for the fences all the time." Still in search of their first conference win, the Jayhawks will play host to No. 14 Oklahoma in a doubleheader starting at 4 p.m. Wednesday. “We need to get back to remembering that we’re good team,” said Rosie Hull, who had one of KU’s five hits. “Like, look at our (nonconference) season. We’re the same team … I think it’s just about realizing that we’re as good as these teams, and we can play with them.”

BRIEFLY Kansas women’s tennis upended by Huskers LINCOLN, NEB. — Freshmen Dylan Windom and Amy Barnthouse won at Nos. 5 and 6 singles, but they provided the only points for Kansas University’s tennis team in a 5-2 loss Sunday to Nebraska. The Jayhawks fell to 7-9 overall, 1-5 in the Big 12. The Cornhuskers moved to 16-3 and 4-1. Windom beat Frederike Putthoff, 6-4, 6-1, at No. 5 singles, and Barnthouse concluded the day by collecting her first career Big 12 victory over Jennifer Holmberg in No. 6 singles, 5-7, 6-4 (10-8).

stares down the biggest schools in Indiana and wins the state championship. On its second try. What seemed impossible in that movie is becoming more the norm, at least in the college game. Last season, Butler (28-9) came one desperation heave from toppling Duke to become the first true midmajor to win the championship. This season, Butler wasn’t even the biggest longshot at the Final Four. That was VCU, an 11th seed that fell to the Bulldogs in Saturday’s semifinal. As recently as 2008, the NCAA tournament landed all four No. 1 seeds in the Final Four. This year, there wasn’t a single 1 or 2 for the first time in the 33-year history of seeding. UConn coach Jim Calhoun said this has been the natural progression since the NCAA started limiting scholarships and new NBA rules triggered a flood of players who would come to college for one year, then declare for the draft. “It’s as close to parity as there can be,” Calhoun said. “It certainly can occur in a tournament a lot more than it could playing a Saturday night, then Big Monday. It’s just the nature of things. ... The one-and-done thing, walking the tightrope is a hard thing, a very difficult thing.” If anyone can say they’ve mastered it this season, it’s UConn. Led by Walker, the junior guard on the verge of becoming the best player to ever put on a Huskies uniform, Connecticut won five games in five nights against Big East competition to win the postseason tournament. A remarkable accomplishment in any conference, but especially the Big East — the 16-team behemoth that placed a record 11 teams in the tournament this year. Maybe because of the grueling nature of its regular season, the Big East wore down and had a terrible showing, only moving two teams into the second weekend. But Connecticut is still

standing, a testament to Walker’s playmaking ability (he’s averaging 25.5 points during this 10-game winning streak) and Calhoun’s ability to adjust on the fly to the fatigue that has predictably set in. “Our code has been very simple: ’The hell with it, let’s just go play basketball,”’ Calhoun said. “Well, we wouldn’t be doing all the things we did last night defensively to Kentucky if we just kind of rolled the thing out there. We worked very hard on it. But we worked on it in a different way.” Connecticut advanced to the final by holding the Wildcats to 33.9 percent shooting in a 56-55 victory Saturday night. Butler, meanwhile, only needed two wins in four nights to capture the tournament title in the less-heralded Horizon League. Still, the Bulldogs are on a 14-game winning streak that began after losing their third straight back on Feb. 3. At that point, this was a team that had no guarantees it would even make the NCAA f ield. It looked nothing like the one that captured hearts as it made its run through last year’s tournament. In the final last April, Butler trailed Duke 61-59 with 3.6 seconds left when Gordon Hayward (now playing for Utah in the NBA) grabbed the rebound off an intentionally missed free throw, dribbled four times to the halfcourt line and launched a shot at the buzzer. It hit the backboard, the inside of the rim and bounced out. It could have been the greatest finish ever in sports. It wound up as something less, though Stevens insists he walked away that night feeling like a winner. “Our guys played as well as they could have,” Stevens said. “They represented themselves in an unbelievable manner throughout that whole game. That might be the reason why we had parades, too, even though we lost. It was remarkable the way people treated us even though we lost.” One win away from the pinnacle once again, the Bulldogs are talking about finishing the deal this time.

Rays slugger Longoria could miss three weeks ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (AP) — Tampa Bay’s Evan Longoria was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday because of a strained a muscle in his left side. The strained oblique muscle could sideline the All-Star third baseman a minimum of three weeks, manager Joe Maddon Longoria said before the series finale against the Baltimore Orioles. The injury comes with Tampa Bay’s offense off to slow start. The defending AL East champions were limited to two runs and eight hits while batting .133 in losing the first two games of the series to the Orioles. “There’s never a good time. ... It’s just unfortunate,” Maddon said. “We’re having a hard time scoring runs out of the chute. He’s probably our best run producer, and now we don’t have him. So, we’re just

Longoria, 0-for-5 with a walk through two games, was removed from the lineup in the sixth inning of Saturday night’s 3-1 loss to the Orioles. He felt some soreness in the muscle during batting practice, and it continued as the night progressed. Sean Rodriguez started at third base Sunday. Lopez signed a minorleague contract with the Rays in February and has spent parts of 10 major-league seasons with Toronto, Cincinnati, Washington, St. Louis, Arizona, Milwaukee and Boston. “During moments like this, a lot of times people ... elevate their games, and things turn out to be OK,” Maddon said. “We’re looking for that to happen.” Tampa Bay will open a twogame series against the Angels on Tuesday at home.

Resentment stems from lazy roommate Annie’s Mailbox

asking, and I’ve probably lost $100 that way. If I ever ask him about these things, he gets angry or promises to try harder, but it never happens. Randy is now out of town, and he left me all the dirty dishes and a ton of garbage. I admit I’m disorganized and I procrastinate, but Randy makes no effort to contribute. What can I do? — Frustrated in New York

I have seen the future of animation and it is “The Problem Solverz” (7:45 p.m., Cartoon Network). Actually, that’s not true at all, I just said that because you have to trot out the phrase: “I have seen the future ... ” every now and then just to have your critic license renewed. Consider it done. “The Problem Solverz” continues the “Adult Swim” habit of marrying the most minimal and cheerfully cheap style of cartooning with mind-warping plots and cosmic conundrums. “The Problem Solverz” looks like it was cooked up in 1987 on a Commodore 64 computer. And I mean that as a compliment. Much like “Aqua Teen Hunger Force,” this cartoon consists of weird-looking archetypal characters rendered in an aggressively ugly fashion. Horace is the sensible one with a weird butchered haircut. Roba is a super-logical but fearful nerd who feels protected by dressing as a robot. Alfe is described as “half man, half Anteater and half dog.” He’s a sort of an infantile Chewbacca with an insatiable appetite for pizza. The first problem for the “Solverz” involves a rogue roller coaster called “The Time Twister,” which sends hapless riders into advanced old age. The “Solverz” decide to board it up to prevent any additional temporal damage, but Alfe sees it as a good way of getting to yesterday to eat a cold slice of pizza all over again. He quickly shreds the fabric of time and space, f illing downtown with dinosaurs, etc. You don’t have to be wellversed in any of Einstein’s theories to keep up here, but I’m sure it would help. ● Workaholic parents get a wake-up call from those they neglect most on the new series “Kidnapped by the Kids” (8 p.m., OWN). ● TCM commemorates the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the American Civil War with a month-long film festival of Civil War-themed movies running on Monday and Wednesday night throughout the month of April. Things kick off with the 1939 epic “Gone with the Wind” (7 p.m., Eastern, TCM). ● PBS continues their repeat of the 1990 documentary series “The Civil War” (7 p.m., PBS) nightly through Thursday.

Tonight’s other highlights ● The Yankees host the Twins (6 p.m., ESPN). ● A candidate falls ill as an election nears on “House” (7 p.m., Fox). ● The NCAA Basketball Championships (8 p.m., CBS) conclude. ● “Intervention” (7 p.m., A&E, TV-PG), gives way to “Relapse” (8 p.m., A&E). ● Negotiations fizzle on “The Event” (8 p.m., NBC). ● A bank robber meets a grim fate on “The Chicago Code” (8 p.m., Fox). ● The documentary “His Way” (8 p.m., HBO) profiles producer Jerry Weintraub a power broker in Hollywood and Washington. ● Josh needs a defender on the season finale of “Harry’s Law” (9 p.m., NBC). ● A half-baked murder victim on “Castle” (9 p.m., ABC).

You could ask Randy to contribute money in lieu of working so you can invest in cleaning supplies or hire help. You could pool your resources to hire an occasional cleaning person.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Monday, April 4: You could be surprised and delighted by everything that might occur in the next few months. You have entered a new life cycle, and the first year is often very lucky. If you are single, the person you have long dreamt of could appear. If you are attached, you'll be much happier within the relationship than you have been for years. Taurus could be quite possessive. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★★ You wake up refreshed and ready to go. If you're not working, you might have what seems like endless ideas and possibilities. Tonight: Treat yourself on the way home. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★ Much happens behind the scenes during the daylight hours. You wonder what your possibilities are, and you sense they might be limitless. Tonight: Go for what you want. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Your ability to grasp concepts is far more unique than you know. For you, the problem

lies in relaying the idea. Tonight: Burning the midnight oil. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ Deal with a partnership directly early on. You don't want a problem later, when a potential issue could have been rerouted and/or worked through. Tonight: Dream on. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★★ You often visualize situations very differently from many people. Your ability to read between the lines helps you establish a greater sense of direction. Tonight: Until the wee hours. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★★ Others naturally defer to you, as they know whatever the issue in question might be, you will handle it properly. Tonight: Say "yes." Open up to a discussion. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Dive into work knowing full well that a lot could happen and toss you into chaos. You see a networking option on the horizon. Tonight: Maintain a sense of humor. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ Your creativity seems endless to many. Please don't take it for granted, as nothing is endless, and a lot can and

Dear Annie: I am a 22-yearold college student living on a fixed income in a small apartment with a roommate. “Randy” is one of my best friends, and we’ve known each other for 10 years. We’re a good match. I suffer from Asperger’s, and Randy has a minor case of OCD. We are two average, slightly sloppy 20-somethings. But I have a problem with Randy. We moved in together a year ago and have only twice set aside time to clean the place. The first time, I was the only one doing anything. Randy spent those three days barking orders at me and playing on his computer. A few weeks ago, he asked if “we” could clean. He helped in the kitchen, although I did all the hard stuff while he mostly supervised. The next day, we started on the bathroom, but Randy got sidetracked playing on his computer, and I ended up cleaning it myself. Once in a blue moon, Randy will vacuum the living room, but he gives up about a third of the way through. He refuses to wash the dishes with anything except cheap paper towels that come apart, so there’s always food still caked on them, and I have to rewash them. Randy yells at me for leaving things out, even though he does the same thing. He’s been known to throw my stuff away without

A&M stifles Stanford ————

Layup in final seconds lifts Aggies to 63-62 win INDIANAPOLIS (AP ) — Texas A&M’s defense was good enough to upset two No. 1 seeds. The Aggies will find out Tuesday night if it is good enough to win their f irst national championship. Sydney Colson drove the length of the floor and found a cutting Tyra White for a layup with 3.3 seconds left to give the Aggies a thrilling 6362 victory Sunday over Stanford, which goes home from its fourth straight Final Four without a championship. The teams traded leads five times in the final minute, capping A&M’s remarkable rally from a 10-point deficit in the final six minutes. And they’re not finished yet. “It’s time to make history,” Colson said. The Aggies (32-5) already have done that by punching a ticket to their first title game. Beat homestate favorite Notre Dame, a 72-63 upset winner over Connecticut, on Tuesday night and the Aggies (32-5) will have far more to celebrate in a year the program pro-

duced its first All-American, Danielle Adams, and broke through on the national stage by beating Baylor last week after three losses to the topseeded Bears this season. “Give credit,” coach Gary Blair said after winning his first semifinal game in two tries. “Defense will win for you.” And Sunday’s comeback will not be soon forgotten. When Stanford took a 54-44 lead with 6:01 to play, most people inside Conseco Field-

house assumed the Cardinal were heading to their third title game in four years. The Aggies — and that oppressive defense — had other thoughts. Stanford (33-3) managed only two more baskets the rest of the night, and A&M’s aggressive offensive moves got them back into the game. The Cardinal just couldn’t stop the rally. “I thought we played very well to get the lead,” Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer said. “We had to do some things that we don’t have to do all season long against anyone else.” That was the plan all along. The A&M players said they wanted to make Stanford uncomfortable and the Cardinal never looked more flustererd than in that frantic final minute. Colson, who woozily went to the bench after a hard screen earlier in the half, gave Texas A&M a 59-58 lead by making two free throws with 53 seconds left. Eighteen seconds later,

Adams was called for a foul on Stanford’s Nnemkadi Ogwumike. The upset Adams got up and started running toward the Aggies bench, with one of the referees telling her to calm down. Ogwumike made both shots to give Stanford a 60-59 lead. “It was hectic, you know,” Aggies guard Sydney Carter said. “Everybody was saying 30 seconds for the rest of y’all’s lives.” Turns out 30 seconds was still an eternity in this game. A&M came back with White’s layup with 19 seconds to go, only to have Ogwumike answer with a tough layup of her own with 9 seconds left that gave Stanford a 62-61 lead. The Aggies, without a timeout, immediately got the ball to Colson, who raced up the floor and dished to White for the winner. White f inished with 18 points, and a slow-starting Adams had 16 points to lead the Aggies. The Cardinal were led by Ogwumike’s 31 points.

Notre Dame stuns top-seeded UConn, 72-63

NOTRE DAME’S BECCA BRUSZEWSKI, CENTER, goes up with a shot against Connecticut players Stefanie Dolson, left, and Tiffany Hayes. The Irish stunned UConn, 72-63, in a national semifinal Sunday in Indianpolis.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — It’s not often Maya Moore meets her match. Skylar Diggins was up to the task, and Notre Dame will play for a national championship because of it. The sensational sophomore guard scored 28 points and hotshooting Notre Dame upset UConn, 72-63, on Sunday night, ending the brilliant career of Moore and the Huskies’ quest for a third straight national championship. Ten years after their last title, the Irish will be playing for another one Tuesday night against Texas A&M, which beat Stanford, 63-62, in the first semifinal. The Aggies scored with 3 seconds left in a back-and-forth game to set up the improbable championship game that features no top seeds for the first time since 1994. Connecticut and Stanford had each been to the Final Four the last four seasons and were expected to meet for the title on Tuesday night in a rematch of last year’s title game. While UConn won that meeting, the Cardinal ended UConn’s record 90-game winning streak on Dec. 30. Everyone thought the rematch would come here in Indi-

anapolis on basketball’s biggest stage. “This is what women’s basketball needs,” Texas A&M coach Gary Blair said. “It needs regional finals, national semifinal and national final games like this to sometimes wake up America.” Notre Dame was 0-3 against its Big East rival this season, but the Irish had all the answers this time for the Huskies, who lost for just the second time in three seasons. The Irish already had beaten Tennessee in the NCAA Tournament, ending a 20-game skid against the Volunteers. Now the Irish (31-7) have knocked out the two-time defending champions.

Moore finished with 36 points, including 12 straight as she tried to rally the Huskies from a 12-point deficit in the final 6 minutes, but it wasn’t enough for UConn (36-2). “I don’t know that you could wish for somebody better to spend four years with,” UConn coach Geno Auriemma said of Moore. “I don’t think she needs to hang her head one bit.” The four-time All-American and AP player of the year was overshadowed by Diggins, the South Bend native who felt right at home in Conseco Fieldhouse, where she led her high school to three straight championships. Calmly directing her offense and fearlessly driving into the lane to create chances for herself and her teammates, Diggins now has a chance to add a NCAA championship to that list. “We had to be poised, I mean, we had to try to make Maya take tough shots, and I think she did,” Diggins said. “And at the end we said, ’We have to stay poised on defense and we have to execute on offense.’ We showed a lot more poise than we did in the

first three games against Connecticut.” Trailing 34-26 early in the second half, Diggins’ threepoint play started a 15-4 run by the Irish. Devereaux Peters’ added her own three-point play that gave Notre Dame a 38-37 advantage — its first lead since midway through the first half. Diggins capped the burst with another three-point play that made it 41-38 with 13:17 left and brought the pro-Irish crowd to its feet and left Auriemma’s team reeling. The Irish extended their lead to 47-40 a few minutes later before UConn cut the deficit to four on Bria Hartley’s 3-pointer. Brittany Mallory and Natalie Novosel hit consecutive 3pointers to make it a 12-point game with just over 7 minutes left. Moore did her best to try to rally her young team, but the Huskies fell short. Moore started her flurry with a three-point play and then a hit a deep three. After Novosel hit a layup Moore hit another 3-pointer that made it 63-60 with 2:26 left. That’s as close as the Huskies would get as Diggins and the Irish were too much for them down the stretch.
