WHEN BUYING A PUPPY....
1 2 3 4 5
Avoid breeders who breed more than two types of dogs. Beware of breeders selling puppies over the internet and who are willing to ship puppies anywhere in the country. Beware of ads in newspapers with phone numbers starting with 717 area codes. The most infamous puppy mills in the country can be found in PAâ€™s Dutch Country. Avoid store if puppy was bred in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Iowa, Arkansas, Ohio or Lancaster County, Pa. The most effective way to avoid a bad breeder is to adopt from a local shelter or rescue organization. INFORMATION PROVIDED BY WWW.MLAR.COM

The perfect score Taking Adderall? NOT cheating
BY LAURA GALLAGHER Managing Editor
Procrastination. Disorganized. Being easily distracted. These are only a few symptoms for a common condition known as ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). It is something a lot of people struggle with, and one way to control these behaviors is being prescribed to Adderall. It has also been known as a legalized form of cocaine. While this medication is helping people with ADHD become more focused, it is also becoming a habit for many college students to increase productivity and study habits. This raises the question for many people, is taking Adderall cheating? Lets break it down. First things first, anyone who isn’t being prescribed this drug by a doctor should not be doing it in the first place. Quite frankly, it’s dangerous. Putting that aside, is taking a pill that allows you to become focused, productive and basically helps you finish schoolwork easier considered cheating? What I considered to be cheating is looking at another person’s answers or having a cheat sheet in your pocket. My opinion is it’s pure laziness. When a teacher announces a test, he/she gives each student the same amount of time to study for this test. Some students choose to start studying as soon as possible. Making note cards and studying with friends are examples that this student doesn’t want to delay cramming all
the information until the last minute. Someone who chooses to take an Adderall most likely has practiced poor time management and stays up long hours (which is a side effect) cramming the same exact information that everyone else is studying, but it a short period of time. Moral of the story is that Adderall does not magically turn you into a genius; it just allows a student to study information with no distractions. This isn’t me saying that I think Adderall is a great thing to do and everyone should try it. I actually think it’s taking away the point of what college is--to get the best education you can and use the skills you have learned for your future. Taking a pill to enhance your academic performance is scary. You can become addicted. Yes, Adderall can help you with schoolwork, but if you chose to be careless and not do your homework then it’s your own fault. This drug is not going to suddenly make you responsible. If someone has a problem with concentration and sitting still, they should express their concern with a doctor, not self medicate themselves with something that may or may not be harmful. I think this is a topic that has become more prevalent over the years and everyone is always going to have his or her own argument. Yes, taking Adderall with no prescription is illegal. Yes, it is substance abuse. But I personally do not think it is considered cheating. LCG39@CABRINI.EDU
Cheating: there’s a fine, fine line
BY BETHANY BIGENHO Staff Writer
The class before you have an exam, what is the one thing that most professors do? They give you a practice exam. They show you exactly what kind of problems will be on the exam and what you should be studying. During class, they will even go over what the exam will look like and what questions you should be focusing on. Studying from someones else’s past exam may be considered cheating, but I think it’s more like studying wisely. If the teacher is already giving you the questions that are going to be included, then what’s the difference between using an already-used exam? Chances are, the professor probably changes the test questions, and they wouldn’t even end up being the same. If you study off of the exam that was already given, it will only help you, not harm you. But “past” is a relative term. Past for me, means months and semesters ago. I do not agree with studying from a test that was given
the class period before and then using that to steal answers from. There is a difference between studying and stealing. If you are not sure about if the use of a past exam is considered cheating, then why not just ask your professor. I’m sure that they would appreciate you asking and finding out before you actually use the test for studying purposes. Academic dishonesty is a big problem today, but this is just using resources. Professors sometimes even take back the tests after the grade has been seen. If the professor doesn’t keep the test after the grade has been seen, then they are basically just telling you to help someone else in semesters to come. Professors should have an idea that students will use other students’ past exams. They should then just make new copies. You are not guilty of anything until you take the test. If you are sitting there with papers on your desk doing the old “write answers on your arm or put papers on the floor method,” that
o b r t
o t g e is blatantly cheating. Studying a past exam is no different than using the practice guide the teacher has already given out. The chance of remembering all the things you looked at on the study guide is very slim. There is no reason to believe that you even have the exact same test as the one that you will be taking. If there are students that took the class before and they remember certain aspects, then that is just a study strategy.

Letâ€™s make healthy choices I think Michelle Obamaâ€™s â€˜Letâ€™s Moveâ€™ campaign combating childhood obesity is definitely needed. As the years go on more and more youth in America are overweight. One-third of young people in America are obese or overweight. And in African-American and Latino communities itâ€™s almost 50 percent. Many families from AfricanAmerican and Latino communities canâ€™t afford or donâ€™t have access to fresh foods in an abundance. That means nine times out of 10 the foods given at home are not the best BY JENAY SMITH health-wise but might be cost-wise. Features Editor If the government is offering free or reduced lunches they should be the best, which means the healthiest. The U.S.â€™s healthy food options should be offered in every school. I donâ€™t think many people know that the path weâ€™re on now is a dangerously unhealthy one. Our culture has brought us to a fast food nation which is always on the run. The culture we developed does not even take care of the health of our youth. There are a few facts that are clear death threats for our youth. One, most schools have cut the amount of time students spend in the gym; some donâ€™t have any gym time at all. This does not allow students to get the exercise they need. With technology taking over our lives at work, school and home something as simple as walking around is minimal.
The culture of playing outside for hours has changed. Now, children and young adults are playing video games, watching TV and are online for hours each day. Not to mention educationâ€™s shift to online-only and classrooms becoming paperless. Now students donâ€™t have to go any further than their desk in their room for information.
These are all intelligent shifts towards a new and improved technological era but also a heavier one, literally. These advances reinforce non-physical activity. We need a balance. If we can do a majority of learning on the computer we need to push to have more physical activity in school and to be more active in general. Another contributing factor are school lunches. Some high schools have fast-food options like Taco Bell and Pizza Hut in school. In public schools they have a lot of food that is not as nutritious as they may claim.
For example, what they call fruit could be processed fruit in a cup. This fruit is basically sitting in sugary syrup waiting for someone to eat it. Also sometimes the fresh fruit they do offer is not ripe which turns students off from eating it. â€˜Letâ€™s Moveâ€™ is Michelle Obamaâ€™s push to raise a healthier generation of kids. Making school lunches healthier is a perfect place to start enforcing healthy eating. We need to raise a generation of people that can take care of themselves. Itâ€™s projected that the generation that is growing up now will have the shortest lifespan of any other in modern time. If that doesnâ€™t put you on alert I donâ€™t know what would; maybe if we said that they were eating a plateful of knives more people would pay attention. Many high school students have complained about their school lunches changing with Michelle Obamaâ€™s healthy eating campaign. Many students donâ€™t know what harmful effects certain unhealthy eating habits can do to you. Sooner or later these bad habits will catch up with you unless you combat them with healthier habits. Making healthier choices overall is not an easy transition but an imperative one. We need to continue with the â€˜Letâ€™s Moveâ€™ campaign and support whatever legislation that needs to be passed in order to help it expand. We donâ€™t want our lifespan to be a bell curve. We want to continue to live longer and better our health all around. Not only for us, but for those that follow.
Athlete Nutrition The sound of rich French vanilla ice cream smothered in hot fudge nestled on a warm brownie and topped with whipped cream makes my mouth water. But did I burn enough calories to treat myself to this fudge brownie sundae? Letâ€™s just BY MARYKATE MCCANN say I am an Multimedia Editor athlete who consumes foods everyone else is nagged to avoid. Sports drinks, bars and gels are used before, during and after exercising, but the calories you put back in your body are the most important in improving your athletic routine. I know after I compete in competition I feel I can eat desserts and fatty foods because I burned a lot, but thatâ€™s not the case. After burning those calories your body needs to refuel so that you will not only obtain, but also maintain, optimal performance. Your daily eating pattern is critical. Fueling with protein instead of a Big Mac and hydrating with water instead of beer, will help you stay in good health so you can train and compete at your best.
When a physical workout is over, the mental work isnâ€™t. Athletes burn up mass amount of calories and what you decide to eat after you burn those calories will determine your success. You have to understand how much a serving size is and how many calories a serving contains. Itâ€™s called portion control. Your daily diet should supply you with the fuel and nutrients needed to recover quickly between workouts and maintain an appropriate body weight. During digestion, the body breaks down carbohydrates to glucose and stores it in the muscles as glycogen. That is why coaches are always advising an athlete to eat a good amount of spaghetti, potatoes, lasagna, cereals and other grain products. Athletes on high-carbohydrate diets can exercise longer than athletes eating a low-carbohydrate diet. Athletes need to find balance between food and physical activity and get the most nutrition out of calories. The choices you make outside the gym and in the kitchen will make or break your performance. MM3585@CABRINI.EDU

Being a leader of D i v e r s i t y BY HEATHER LAPERGOLA Staff Writer BY RYAN MCLAUGHLIN Staff Writer
Leading a club is no easy task to take on. There are many challenges club leaders are faced with when launching a new club or carrying out an already established club in the hopes that it continues to grow and thrive even after the founder - or founders - have left. “It’s hard being a leader in general, especially when people rely on you for a lot of things,” John Eddings, junior and president of the Black Student Union, said. Eddings spoke of some plans to further engage the student body. A key motif is to erase negative stigmas. This task won’t come easy or overnight but with the determination of hardworking students at Cabrini, many things foreshadowed as seemingly impossible have already been accomplished. Regarding plans to the future, Eddings hopes the club will continue to prosper and develop even after he graduates. “I’m hoping by the time I graduate there’s going to be a legacy and someone else will take over,” Eddings said. Although there are many plans on events in the upcoming future, Eddings made it clear there weren’t any set in stone at this point in time. “Similar to other diversity clubs on campus we do have a strong background, but I feel that it’s important to keep ourselves separate so we know exactly why we are important,” Eddings said. While there are many different diversity oriented clubs here at Cabrini, Eddings makes a great point that each one has its own unique goal and with that comes its own unique path to achieve it. Junior business administration major Ashlee Grazier is the president of Amor Latino, formally known as La Raza. “Our purpose is to educate people about the Hispanic culture,” Grazier said. “To just let people know that it’s not just black and white on campus, because that’s what everybody thinks it is, and there’s more cultures around.” She continued saying, “I’m so in love with the culture and

I wanted to bring something to the table.” When asked about the troubles of running a club, Grazier responded, “It’s hard being a president just because you know you have everything hanging over your head. Like if it flops, it’s because of you. If no one shows up, it’s because of you and you’ve got to figure out why no one showed up.” Despite the struggles though, Grazier says there are rewards with every negative aspect. “This is helping me as a person,” Grazier said. “It’s showing me how to become a better leader and what’s the things I have to do to actually get people to come to things.” Many students know the club as La Raza, however, this year the name of the club was switched from La Raza, which means “the race” to Amor Latino, which means “love Latino.” Grazier didn’t like the original name and explained, “I just wanted to add love to it because the
“It’s hard being a president just because you know you have everything hanging over your head...” GRAZIER
culture itself is beautiful, and for someone not to love the culture is just insane to me.” The biggest thing Grazier says she gets from the group is the motivation of other people and learning about the culture. Through teaching other people about the culture, she also learns things herself. Another club in the process of name transition is Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA), which is formally known as Gay Straight Alliance or, at Cabrini, as Sanctuary. New club president, junior psychology major
Dymond Gleaves, explained that the purpose of the club is to provide a safe space on campus for people of the LGBT community and also people who are supportive of that community, to come and feel comfortable to be themselves. “Being the president, you’re constantly running around and trying to get stuff done and meet up with people and sometimes balancing it doesn’t always work out; something is forgotten,” Gleaves said. Balancing life outside of a club is the same for any president: challenging. The best part of the job for Gleaves is “knowing that you did something that you’re proud of, and that other people are proud of.” “GSA is important to me here on campus and to know that I’m providing that space, along with my exec board; that space for people to come so that they can feel comfortable or just feel like they belong to the campus, belong to something that’s good,” Gleaves said. “That’s the reward for me.” Last year, Gleaves was only a member and attended the few meetings they had, however she wanted to see the club do more and become bigger and more successful. She didn’t want to see it fail or fall behind, so she took it over. She says that she has noticed a definite improvement in meeting consistency and word around campus. “For GSA, I want people to know that it’s not just for people who are gay or bisexual or transgendered. You don’t have to be a part of the LGBT community for you to be in this club.” Gleaves said. “If you have a friend, if you have a family member, if you just want to be there for someone else, even if you don’t know anyone and you just want to know more about it, come to the meetings.” people who are gay or bisexual or transgendered. You don’t have to be a part of the LGBT community for you to be in this club.” Gleaves explains, “If you have a friend, if you have a family member, if you just want to be there for someone else, even if you don’t know anyone and you just want to know more about, come to the meetings.

The easiest form of decoration. Simply fold a piece of scrap paper three or four times and cut out shapes from the folded paper. Unfold and decorate your snowflake with glitter to add a little extra shine. Assign one to each of your roommates, add personalized name design and trinkets. Don’t forget to add a gift to each one before break starts as a little thoughtful touch. With the limited space, a large tree just won’t do. You can purchase any small artificial tree with preassembled electric bulbs, saving you tons of time. Add your own theme of decorations and don’t forget to wrap up small gifts and place them under the tree for your roommate.

Tattooed and Inked Distinction, honor, expression Even though tattoos are now trending, they previously had a greater meaning than self expression. BY MADISON MILANO Staff Writer
Tattoos, like everything else, have their trends. There are certain designs and placements that are considered “in” during certain times. But no matter what, tribal tattoos always seem to be a consideration. No doubt tribal tattoos have an appealing look, but what about their history? My guess is that most people who have, or consider getting, tribal tattoos do not know why they were used in the first place. Tattoos date back to ancient Egyptian and Greek times. History shows that the custom of getting and having tattoos used to be a purely female attribute. Some believe that women used to be marked because they were of “dubious status” – it was the mark of prostitutes or were meant to protect the women against sexually transmitted diseases. Others think that tattoos were used as a type of therapy during pregnancy and birth. These tattoos consisted mostly of dotted patterns of lines. The Greeks and Romans would use tattoos to mark someone as belonging to a religious sect. The Maori culture of New Zealand used facial tattoos to mark social status. A lot of tribes, like the Samoans, believed that getting tattoos was the first

Their original designs of sweeping curves and sharp points that form patterns are still seen mainstream.

Cabrini students have tattoos with meaning.
“This is a Puerto Rico tribute tattoo. The frog is called a coqui and it only survives in Puerto Rico. This frog makes one noise; instead of ‘ribbit, ribbit’ it makes the sound ‘coqui, coqui.’ The coqui is also the symbol of Puerto Rico. The middle piece is called ‘El Morro.’ It’s a historic landmark in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and it is kind of like the Statue of Liberty but in Puerto Rico. The Palm Trees just represent the palm trees in Puerto Rico. The writing says ‘Boricua’ which means Puerto Rican in Spanish. I love being Puerto Rican and that’s why I decided to dedicate my chest piece to my heritage.”
“I believe that tattoos can be very creative. I love when people get tattoos that have sentimental value to them and have a story behind them.”
“If I ever get one, it’d have to be really meaningful. I think I’d rather get a word or a whole quote as a tattoo before I got something more visual; as a writer, words mean more to me.”
“Once upon a time, I viewed bodies as temples; it was how I was raised. NOW, as an artist, I look at our bodies as a blank canvas, still sacred. We use the most precious medium which is permanent ink.”
“I don’t really like tattoos. I don’t discriminate against anybody who has one, but I would never get one myself.”

Tattoos are so common nowadays that it’s almost strange to not have one. However, as common as they are, is it safe to say you will still get a job with a tattoo? “I cannot isolate my tattoos as being the cause of missed job opportunities,” Dr. Wehrman, sociology and criminology professor at Cabrini College, said. “However, it never had any negative ramifications here at Cabrini.” Tattoos are literally all over the place. Whether you go to your local food market or turn on your television you will find celebrities ranging from Angelina Jolie to Megan Fox sporting tattoos. It would almost be strange if professional athletes in sports such as basketball, football and baseball, to ultimate fighters didn’t have tattoos. “It all depends on where you are at in the professional world,” Wehrman said. “If you look at Wall Street, being slightly unshaven would be seen as a violation of social norms.If the stigma still exists
it is because that company can afford to reinforce such social norms.” Tattoos seem to have such a bad reputation because even though they are so common they still remain a display of deviance. “Any body modification whether it be tattoos or piercings still display deviance even though the danger is remarkably less,” Wehrman said. “Without being overt the stigma of ear piercings alone in the past for males meant you were willing to be openly gay in public.” Body modifications seem to have negative connotations within the professional world given their history. They were a presentation of going against social norms and acting at risk. The professional world assumes a future or non-future employee is a rebel if they have a tattoo or body modification. Therefore it all depends on where you see yourself within the professional world. Ask yourself: is it worth risking job opportunities? AKC49@CABRINI.EDU
Look at your artist’s portfolio. Have an engagement period* of at least 30 days. *Ask yourself after 30 days if you committed and as excited about the design and if the answer is yes then you will probably be okay with it forever. Do not be spontaneous when it comes to tattoos. Make sure the shop is clean.

TOP 10 TATTS
Can’t decide which tattoo to get? Want to be a bit original? Here’s a list of the 10 most popular tattoos that you may or may not want to use based on popularity.
Whether you’re going for the nautical star look or the Rihanna tattoo look, stars are one of the most common tattoos out there. My advice? If you’re going to get a star, try to be a little original with it.
I never understood the whole skull fad, but I guess it’s popular enough for a ton of people to want tattoos of it.
Not all that surprising. Whether you love them or hate them, tribal tattoos are extremely popular. Now I doubt that half the guys that get these tattoos have any relation to actual tribes, however, they aren’t that bad to look at.
Weird, right? Yeah I was surprised too. Nothing against people with dragon tattoos; it’s just never crossed my mind to get a tattoo of a dragon.
This really isn’t a big surprise either. Although this tattoo is common, I feel like it’s also a bit more personal; everybody will have a different reason to get a cross tattooed on them.
Not surprising at all. I like the idea of heart tattoos – except the heart with the word ‘mom’ in it. I don’t know of anybody who actually has that – but again, try to be original with it.
Chinesse or Japense Symbols
Angels I was kind of surprised by this one, but I guess it almost goes hand-in-hand with the crosses.
Not surprising here either. The cool thing about these tattoos? You could literally get any word you want and nobody would have any idea what it says.
Names Personally, I like the butterfly tattoos. My only qualm with getting them though, is that they can very easily look cheesy. If this is a tattoo you want, make sure you have an exact idea of how you want it to look.
Whether it’s the name of a family member, your own name or the name of someone in remembrance, these tattoos are pretty popular. However, I would stay away from getting the name of a boyfriend or girlfriend tattooed on you; I hear tattoo removal is pretty painful.

The Ink MUST GO BY ROCCO DELMONTE Staff Writer
New job or career? Having problems with wearing revealing clothes? Or just suffering embarrassment? These are just a few reasons why both men and women seek out tattoo removal procedures. It may seem like getting a tattoo is a form of artistic expression, rebellious action, a status symbol, or just a way to get back at your parents. 44 percent of people who have gotten tattoos did so to feel unique; 33 percent wanted a taste of independence; 28 percent wanted to bring attention to a particular life experience. But after time passes by and your skin is still inked and your mind matures, what then? There are multiple reasons why not to get a tattoo or why to have one removed or covered up. The six most common reasons for tattoo removal reported included 58 percent who just decided to remove it; 57 percent suffered from embarrassment; 38 percent had found a new job that required a professional appearance that prohibits tattoos; 37 percent have problems
wearing certain clothes that show skin and another 27 percent experienced a stigma among their peers. Dermatological surgeons state that the complete removal of a tattoo is not possible. The removal of a tattoo is difficult because tattoos are meant to be permanent. Tattoo removal was not always a series of laser sessions; tattoo removal started in the late 1980s with a series of more painful methods of removal. Dermabrasion was the sanding of the skin, cryosurgery was the freezing of the skin, and excision was where the tattoo was simply cut off by use of a scalpel. These forms of removal are still used in some cases today but lasers have become the standard treatment for
tattoo removal. The laser removal offers a bloodless, low-risk and effective alternative with minimal side effects. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis with a series of visits. The laser removes the tattoo by using a wavelength of light in short flashes called pulses. The lasers effectively remove the tattoo with a low risk of scarring. The lasers of light pass harmlessly through the top layers of the skin to be selectively absorbed by the tattoo pigment. Before getting a tattoo people usually think about the cost of getting it, but they should be more concerned about the cost of removing it. Having a tattoo removed is a lot more expensive than having one done. Laser tattoo removal ranges from several hundreds of dollars up into the thousands depending upon size, type, and location of the tattoo. RAD87@CABRINI.EDU

Deas helping to make a difference on and off court BY SE’QUIA BAILEY Staff Writer
Many mothers believe that their child is uniquely different. Senior women’s basketball player Renee Deas is not only a star on the basketball team but she is a shining star in other aspects of life. “I know Renee is special,” her mother, Denise, said. “She is very wise for her age and is very determined.” Deas, a Philadelphia native, attends Cabrini as a psychology major. Deas heard about Cabrini through her cousin who took an accelerated course here. “I didn’t know where or what Cabrini was until my cousin graduated from here,” Deas said. “I just knew that this was where I was supposed to be.” That’s exactly what Deas needed, especially since she wants a career where she impacts, directs and challenges youth. As a first-year point guard for the Lady Cavs last season, Deas appeared in 26 games averaging 4.4 points 1.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game. “Renee is one of our players that comes off the bench and adds so much fire and energy to the court,” head coach, Kate Pearson, said.
Deas was also named to CSAC AllAcademic Team. But it’s not all play with no work for Deas. “One of my first jobs was working at a daycare. I worked there for four years and from then on I knew exactly what I wanted to do,” Deas said. Currently Deas does Therapeutic Staff Support (TSS) as a mental health technician. “I just know I want to make a difference in a child’s life,” Deas said. “I know that I can impact and influence them in a way to think deeper than the average person and believe that their differences is what makes them unique.” Deas plans on attending graduate school and continuing TSS work. It’s something that she is very passionate about and have been for a while. “Renee is very shielded in who she let’s in and get to know her,” Deas’ mother said. “I never tell people what my plans are if they are going to support and be there for you they will just do it,” Deas said. “Plus when you tell people your plans they have expectations that you feel obligated to uphold.” Deas advises those in life to learn time management early. She also advises that youth as well as adults learn the impor-

She believes that critical thinking challenges your intellect beyond what you would normally think and it helps you to become a stable person. Although you will see her being a jokester on and off the court, she values her education to the extreme because she wants to make her family especially her mother proud.

The Cabrini women’s basketball team huddles befores their home opener against Eastern University on Tuesday, Nov. 20.
Hoop Scoop: Lady Cavs must keep ‘team wins’ coming BY KEVIN DURSO Sports Editor
Perhaps it was early-season nerves but the Cabrini women’s basketball team played like a different team on Tuesday night. After two games of shaky shooting - the Lady Cavs averaged 27 percent shooting from the floor in their first two games - the Lady Cavs outplayed Eastern with their best shooting game of the season. On all other fronts, the team operated like a well-oiled machine. They brought their usual stifling defense that held Eastern to just 29 points. They forced 24 turnovers, including 15 steals. If the best offense is a good defense, the Lady Cavs have the formula to operate on that policy. Still, what stood out was the team aspect. There was constant rotation of players on the floor. All players on the floor touched the ball at numerous times. One of the things the Lady Cavs proved they can do is move the ball around the floor. The Lady Cavs got 24 points off the bench, 24 points off turnovers and 42 points in the paint. This is a team
capable of dangerous things. But they would have to operate as a team the whole way. “There was contributions from starters, subs, freshmen and seniors,” head coach Kate Pearson said. “We’re just happy that it was a great team win. Everybody did their part.” Having to play as a team shouldn’t come as a problem to many of these players. They clearly were playing for more than bragging rights. They were playing for each other. Clearly this is a team with experience. Clearly this is a team that knows their surroundings on the court. They run plays with crisp passes, excellent speed and a controlling pace. Defenses are forced to conform to their style of play and offenses struggle to escape the tight coverage that the Lady Cavs exhibit. And despite their 2-2 record through four games this season, their losses have been close and their fight on the court has been spirited. This Lady Cavs’ team means business and are a force to be reckoned with. The task of opposing this team becomes
all the more daunting for conference opponents, who get their first look at the Lady Cavs next week. The Lady Cavs will play their first CSAC game on Monday, Dec. 3, against Notre Dame of Maryland and host their first CSAC match two days later on Wednesday, Nov. 5, against Immaculata University. For the Lady Cavs to be the last team standing in the CSAC this season, they need to continue this quality of play. They need to keep the teamwork at high priority. And for a team that is quite familiar with each other - two sophomores, four juniors and three seniors are on the 16-player roster - experience will also go a long way.
Hoop Scoop: Men’s basketball in spotlight BY BETHANY BIGENHO Staff Writer
The men’s basketball team must still be on that last season high. They have shown up ready to play every game so far, and are still playing with that national championship attitude. With a record of 3-2, the games that the men have lost have been against ranked opponents. The latest loss against Scranton ended in heartbreak losing the game by one point in overtime. The team lost some very key players that were seniors last year. Without AllAmerican Cory Lemons and star shooter John Boyd, there are holes to fill. For a team that did so well last year with the players that they had, it must be hard to be missing members of the original unit. And in some cases, it is evident on the floor. Chemisty is a huge aspect to the Cavs’ success. While they are still working out the kinks that come with having new faces - nine in total - they have to meet some lofty expectations. Let’s be honest, whether it’s right or wrong, Cabrini’s men’s basketball team is definitely the school’s favorite sports team. I mean let’s face it. Just about a month ago the men’s and women’s soccer teams both won the CSAC championship. The women’s field hockey and volleyball teams made the CSAC Final. If you asked a majority of students if they even knew about that, they would
probably say no. Last year for the men’s basketball team, there were busses to away games. And for the final championship game, there was a school wide send off for the team. What did the soccer teams get this year? Hardly any recognition compared to what the basketball team got and gets. That’s not to say that the recognition is not warranted. The men’s basketball team did what no other team on campus has ever accomplished. They played for a national championship. They came up just three points short of the school’s first national title. For that, the Cavs have the floor, literally. They will draw crowds and they will have high expectations. But it also comes with a price. There is pressure to deliver. There are tougher games and opponents. The Cavs have a massive target on their back. While they may still be the class of the CSAC, they are now expected to also compete on a national scale. That’s more than any other team on campus can say, even after all four fall sports played in their respected conferenec championships. But perhaps that is too much to ask. Perhaps people need to think of campus sports as a whole and not just the men’s basketball team. It’s easy for success to go to your head, especially when you’re a fan. But keep in mind that what happens on the floor is what really matters and a

The Cavs have tipped-off the 2012-13 season. Perhaps it’s time to shift the focus there and stop talking about the past. What’s done is done and even though the Cavs gave Cabrini national recognition, the focus has already shifted for the players and coaches. Although there is still a lot of work to be done and many more games to be played. If the team continues to play with the pas-
sion that they have now, they should be heading in the same direction as they were in at the end of the season last year. And that’s just the news the Cabrini fans should be looking for.

Cavs fall to Scranton in OT BY KEVIN DURSO Sports Editor
A three-point shot at the buzzer by A.J. Williams bounced in-and-out to end regulation. A two-point jumper by Fran Rafferty rattled off the rim at the final buzzer in overtime. In the end, Cabrini suffered its second defeat of the season in a devastating 74-73 overtime loss to the University of Scranton Royals on Tuesday, Nov. 27. The Royals, ranked 12th in the nation, managed to stay undefeated for another day, improving to 4-0, while the No. 21 Cavs fell to 3-2. The game started in favor of the Royals who jumped out to a 6-0 lead. The Cavs managed to cut the lead to one by the midpoint of the half and trailed by just three points at the half, 34-31. Cabrini continued to trail for much of the second half before going on a 10-4 run to take a five-point lead, their largest of the game. The Cavs went up by five again with under three minutes to play. But the Royals refused to lay down, tying the game less than a minute later.
A pair of free throws by freshman Arron Goodman gave the Cavs the lead with 20 seconds left. But again, the Royals found a way to tie getting a layup by Brandon Boken with six seconds left. Williams fired a three at the buzzer that missed, forcing overtime. The two teams went backand-forth in overtime, trading baskets into the final minute. Fran Rafferty completed a pair of free throws to put the Cavs up by one with a minute to play. Cabrini nearly came away with a huge rebound off a Scranton miss with 31 seconds left. But instead of calling a foul, a jumpball was ruled with the possession arrow favoring Scranton. The Royals then got the remainder of the overtime to make a basket for the lead. With another chance to score, the Royals took advantage with Ross Danzig making the go-ahead layup with nine seconds left. After a timeout with five seconds left, the Cavs put the ball in the hands of Rafferty, whose shot at the buzzer rattled off the iron. Despite the loss, many Cavaliers finished with high point totals. Five Cavs finished in double figures in points.

Lady Cavs lose close game BY GEORGETTE BREEN-NAYLOR Staff Writer
The Lady Cavs basketball team tried to improve their 2-1 record as they traveled to the Scranton Royals on Tuesday, Nov 27. The 4-0 Royals were seeking to start the season undefeated but they had to earn it against a tough Cabrini team. After a slow start, Cabrini had a hard time battling back throughout the game. In the first half of play the Lady Cavs were struggling from the field as they just made seven shots. Scranton defense played the Lady Cavs tough all night and it showed from the start to the end of the game. Junior Brittany Sandone led the Lady Cavs with 19 points. However, her incredible performance was not able to match the play of Scranton’s post player Meredith Mesaris. Mesaris was able to score a game high 26 points to lead the Royals to a 57-53 victory. Although the Lady Cavs struggled in the first half to find the basket, the second half was no walk in the park for the Royals. The game never got away from the Lady Cavs but they were not able to make up from their poor shooting in the first half. Battling back from a half-
time deficit of 25-19, the Lady Cavs were able to shoot much better in the second half but still couldn’t hold the potent offense of the Lady Royals at bay. Scranton was never able to gain a major advantage during the course of the game but maintained a steady lead throughout. In the closing minutes of the second half, the Lady Cavs cut the lead down to 3 but were unable to capitalize. Mesaris’ teammate, Erin Boggan, put up big numbers as well to help her team hold on to victory. Boggan scored 11 points for the Lady Royals while Colleen Stewart scored a careerhigh 15 points for the Lady Cavs. Boggan and Mesaris dominated the boards grabbing a combined 9 rebounds, including 2 offensive rebounds. The Lady Royals improve their undefeated record to 5-0 while the Lady Cavs break even at 2-2. After a tough loss to the Royals, they do have something to look forward to. The Lady Cavs will get the opportunity to start fresh with a game against Notre Dame on Dec 3. Notre Dame will be the Lady Cavs first game against a CSAC opponent. GB424@CABRINI.EDU

Junior Brittany Sandone (No. 22) scored a team-high 19 points in the Lady Cavs’ 57-53 loss to the University of Scranton on Tuesday, Nov. 27.
In basketball, 100 is a sacred number, especially in the Philadelphia area. After all, it was only a short distance away in Hershey, Pa., where Philly basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain dropped 100 points in an NBA game. The record still stands in the NBA after 50 years. Last Tuesday night, while Cabrini was ringing in another basketball season on their home floor, another Division III athlete was making history. The NCAA record for any division was 116 points set by Bevo Francis in 1953. Grinnell College (Iowa) sophomore Jack Taylor shattered the record. Taylor netted 138 points in a single game, making 52 of 108 shots including 27 threepointers. Before everyone jumps at this crazy show of shooting, note that this is a system that Grinnell has run for 24 seasons under head coach David Arseneault. The system features a fullcourt press defense for the entire game and possessions that last approximately five seconds each with quick shots. On this night, the instruction was clear: give the ball to Jack Taylor and let him fire away. While this may be a familiar system to the Grinnell program, this is not a system that other schools in the nation can relate to or understand. NBA stars are acclaiming this performance. I am not. My first thought when hearing of Taylor’s record-setting performance was to instantly apply the ball hog tag. When I learned he played for a Division III basketball team, I instantly thought about my Tuesday night experience. Cabrini had just swept the Battle of Eagle Road in basketball. They won both games with strong team play. And after the game, both coaches enforced the team aspect of the game. That’s the truly great thing about Division III sports, no matter the playing field. Win or lose, players operate as a team and a unit with a goal and a mission. Grinnell may be in the record books but one player doesn’t win championships. Teams win championships. And that’s just the way it should be. KAD323@CABRINI.EDU

Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning (No. 91 in white) and Brad Richards of the New York Rangers (No. 19 in blue) line up for the opening faceoff at Operation Hat Trick on Saturday, Nov. 24, at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. BY ROBERT RICHES News Editor BY BROOKE FAMOUS Staff Writer
The National Hockey League may have entered the 75th day of its lockout, but that did not stop fans from watching some of their favorite stars from around the league at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. on Nov. 24. Operation Hat Trick was a charity game led by Scott Hartnell of the Philadelphia Flyers and Brad Richards of the New York Rangers. Normally, these two players are engaged in an intense on-ice rivalry; however, they set aside their differences for one night to raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief. “I think it was great that Hartnell and Richards put it together with the help of a few others. It was great to see the players out there having fun,” Flyer fan Rachel Farley said. “I think the game meant a lot to the players also since most of them spend a lot of time at the NJ and NY shores.” The game may have been an exhibition charity game where standings did not matter, but the fans still treated it with the intensity of a postseason matchup. Chants such as the classic “Maaaar-tyyy!” were bellowed when Team Hartnell goaltender Martin Brodeur let in a goal. “Fire Bettman!” was another favorite of the fans, giving them the opportunity to vent their frustrations on NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. Despite not playing in the game “Crosby Sucks!” also made its way around. What could a hockey game be
without a few chirps at Sidney Crosby. The rosters for each team gave the game the appearance of an All-Star game. Team Richards was represented by Bobby Ryan and Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks, Daniel Alfredsson of the Ottawa Senators, James Neal of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Ville Leino and Taylor Pyatt of the Buffalo Sabres, Matt Martin of the New York Islanders and Mike Komisarek of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Several of Richards’ Ranger teammates played as well- Brian Boyle, Jeff Halpern, Arron Asham, Dan Girardi, Marc Staal, Steve Eminger and Henrik Lundqvist. The team was coached by Vinny Guadagnino from MTV’s “Jersey Shore.” Team Hartnell also had their fair share of stars from along the league. Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning, David Clarkson, Andy Greene and Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils, James van Riemsdyk of the Maple Leafs, Simon Gagne and Justin Williams of the Los Angeles Kings, Daniel Carcillo of the Chicago Blackhawks, Steve Downie of the Washington Capitals and P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens all suited up for Team Hartnell. Several of Hartnell’s Flyer teammates played alongside him as well - Jody Shelley, Wayne Simmonds, Kimmo Timonen and Braydon Coburn. The team was coached by former Flyer tough guy Rick Tocchet. Legendary referee Kerry Fraser even made an appearance to referee the contest. Fraser last worked a regular-season game in April 2010 between the Flyers and Rangers and refereed last January’s
Flyers-Rangers alumni game. Fraser still maintains residence in the greaterPhiladelphia area, so his one-night-only appearance was only fitting. On the ice, Team Richards won by a 10-6 margin. Neal was the only player to put the hat trick in “Operation Hat Trick,” leading both teams in scoring with four goals. Lundqvist was spectacular, recording 57 saves on 63 Team Hartnell shots. All in all, the event was a success. The event raised over $500,000 for the New Jersey Relief Fund as well as the Empire State Relief Fund. Rocker Sammy Hagar of Van Halen also donated $1,000 for each goal scored, as he owned a restaurant in Atlantic City that was damaged by the storm. Nearly 11,000 people attended, which resulted in a complete sellout of the stadium. There may be no NHL hockey for the time being, but fans were still given the unique opportunity to watch some of their favorite stars while supporting and contributing to an excellent cause.
