Financial aid offers opportunities for misuse and abuse Tim Gorski Staff Writer

Many students who plan to live off campus next year may not receive the financial aid award they are excepting to pay off their leases. Conversely, many students who violate the terms and agreements specified in their loan disclosure statements could be left with more funds than intended.

It is about that time of year when many students start making arrangements to live off campus next school year, and as they select roommates and neighborhoods, most have to consider their finances. Students often anticipate that the cost of living will be covered entirely by their financial aid. However, many students who have been left with excess funds in the past may not necessarily be entitled to the

same refunds as before. Students who are unaware of this fact may end up overstepping their financial endowments and potentially defaulting on their leases. Morgan Middleton, assistant director for the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, is a seasoned veteran in troubleshooting lease complications, and as recent as Thursday, Middleton encountered a student who had to take out a short-

term loan for his rent to make sure he would not be evicted. There are steps students can take to avoid such unfavorable circumstances, Middleton said. The first is to make sure that students file their Free Applications for Federal Student Aid and all other documents required by the financial aid office as soon as they possibly can. Middleton said this ensures student awareness of how much

aid they will be receiving, which can better help them assess affordable living arrangements. Proper FAFSA filing also eliminates the possibility of unnecessary delays in dispersal of aid, which could be troublesome for students who have impending financial deadlines. Middleton also recom-

President Barack Obama gets sworn in on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. During his inaugural speech, he addressed student issues along with pressing national matters.

Mark Herring Editor-in-Chief

As President Barack Obama addressed the nation in his second inaugural speech Monday, calling for cooperative civic action and bipartisanship, he addressed students across the country and the world, encouraging them to pursue higher education in the United States. “Our [national] journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity — until bright

young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country,” Obama said. “Our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of Detroit to the hills of Appalachia, to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for and cherished and always safe from harm.” The president’s call for immigration reform to keep immigrant students in the U.S. workforce has been a grievance of research universities recently. In July, 140 university presidents and chancellors, includ-

Two dorms add 24-hour visitation privileges Elizabeth Moomey Staff Writer

After deliberation by Syme and Bowen residence councils, residents will be allowed to accept guests 24 hours a day in those dorms, effective Fall 2013. Five residence halls were added to the 24-hour list as of Fall 2012, and Syme and Bowen have continued that trend, making 75 percent of residence halls at N.C. State accessible by visitors 24 hours a day. The University Housing website states limited-visitation residence halls are allowed visitors from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday to Thursday and 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday to Saturday. Residents of these halls may permit a visitor of the same sex to remain in the hall as an overnight guest pend-


ing roommate approval. The expansion of 24-hour visitation came after a survey conducted by the InterResidence Council stating 90 percent of residences without 24-hour visitation would approve; 73 percent of the respondents said visitation hours were a factor in deciding what dorm to live in. Brad Templeman, freshman in computer engineering, said the 24-hour visitation policy had an impact on where he decided to live this academic year, stating he liked giving visitors a place to “crash” at his dorm in Carroll Hall. Last academic year, Carroll did not allow 24-hour visitation, but

Wild animals: a campus problem Emily Weaver Correspondent

Wandering around class buildings, through the Brickyard and campus roads, animals have a continuing presence on campus dealt with by several local organizations. Animal sightings by students range from domestic animals to wild animals, but often create dangerous situations on the roads and threaten personal safety. Tracey Alford, supervisor of the Animal Control Unit of Raleigh, explained the animals’ presence in the city causes problems not only to students, but also to the animals. “Students are advised to call the Raleigh Animal Control [if they see an animal] so no one gets hurt,” Alford said. “It is common for animals to be hurt in cities with a high population like Raleigh.”

mended that students identify to their landowners the specificities of their financial situations upfront so they can better deal with any problems that may arise. North Carolina receives the 10th most federal financial aid in the country, with 160,000 students statewide on government loans, and some student use their money for purposes unintended by the educational and governmental institutions which award it. Interest rates on loans offered to students through the University are often significantly better than those that are offered elsewhere, Middleton said.

Nevertheless, this apparent lack of immediate repercussions to cheating the system is no adequate justification for a prodigal lifestyle, Middleton said.

The historic 1960s IHOP located at 1313 Hillsborough Street is slated for demolition.

Kaitlyn Jones Correspondent

The International House of Pancakes on Hillsborough Street is to be torn down within two years following an acquisition by FMW Real Estate, who has begun construction for an apartment near the location, said Darla Craanen, IHOP’s general manager. FMW Real Estate, a Charlotte, N.C., company, will be responsible for the building’s demolition but have plans to build another IHOP near the old location, according to the Raleigh News & Observer. Babak Emadi, an architect at Urbana Architectural firm working on the project, said there are two phases to

The complex will consist of two different buildings that will hold a total of 249 living spaces ranging from studio apartments to 3-bedroom apartments. Emadi said Urbana Architecture Firm is not in charge of Phase II, which will deal with IHOP and the surrounding land. Students and citizens have dined at the IHOP on Hillsborough Street since its construction in 1968, 10 years after the first IHOP was built, according to the company’s website. The restaurant

The next round of change


t the heart of President Barack Obama’s second inaugural address were ideas of unity and diversity, ideas that N.C. State has long advocated. With a more uplifting tone than his first speech, Obama focused on political ideology and the notion of equality, with numerous references to the Declaration of Independence. “What makes us exceptional – what makes us American – is our allegiance to an idea, articulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago,” Obama said before quoting the 247-yearold document. In his first inauguration speech, Obama promised to fix healthcare, the economy and the stagnant wars. He moved forward in each arena with the Affordable Care Act, the auto industry bail-out and the end of the war in Iraq. None of these issues are solved, however, and a sentiment of accepting progress — as opposed to perfection — shone through in talk of his second term. “We must act, knowing that our work will be imperfect,” Obama said. “We must act, knowing that today’s victories will be only partial.” Nevertheless, Obama promised to move forward in his efforts to improve sustainability, equality and

State has championed these same efforts. The speech focused more on climate change than was predicted, eclipsing the expected appeal for gun control reform. N.C. State has long fought for environmental sustainability and received six sustainability-related awards in 2012, among them a nod from The Princeton Review for being one of the top environmentally responsible colleges in both the U.S. and Canada. The University offers a master’s program in environmental assessment, and many of the new buildings on campus are LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified. Obama also called for gender equality and increased rights for the GLBT community: “Our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a liv-

In defense of beauty and the pursuit of knowledge


write this column to try to legitimize a view that may be among the more sacrilegious views an N.C. State student can hold these days. It’s up there with saying things like, “I hope UNC wins,” or “My philosophy degree’s worth more t ha n you r engineerIshan Raval ing degree.” Deputy Viewpoint Editor But they’re legitimate opinions, and this is as well no one should hesitate in speaking it if they believe in it. So people, you can say it, loudly and proudly: “James B. Hunt Jr. Library sucks.” From the outside, it looks like an attempt to marry a battering ram and the Dorton Arena. From inside, it looks like the architects tried to mix the color scheme of Silicon Valley’s Googleplex with the neon messages of New York City’s Times Square … and ended up in an Ikea somewhere in Kansas. From either side, it looks like they were shooting for the future. And this is subjective but that’s why it has to be established as a legitimate view: Futuristic design is crappy, and especially so for a library. And when it comes to Hunt, the exterior seems hollow which it is, spatially and its interior seems frivolous. Hunt Library is form for its own sake, incessantly and obnoxiously shrieking out, “Aren’t you impressed already? I have robots and swirly blue signs!” A place of learning, the highest form of which civilization has always found in

the library, should exude an atmosphere of erudition. It should arouse in us a delight to acquire knowledge, a delight that is unique to us as humans. It should make us aware of the fabulousness of such endeavors and thus make us feel remarkable about being human. But anything that tries to impress by sheer weight of its futurosity and its technological coolness feels dehumanizing. So overbearing is Hunt’s self-justifying form that it takes precedence over the human, over that for which it is actually meant. How can one marvel in the future if one is simply reduced to a mere object in it? Basically, a library should feel like a library. And Hunt doesn’t. It feels like a gaudy Dubai mall. It feels like an international airport lounge. It feels like a place where the most apt music would be techno remixes of Breaking Benjamin. It feels like a place where, if you’re reading The New Yorker or The Autobiography of Malcolm X or even The Origin of Species, you’d be shamed into hiding that and instead picking up an XML textbook or, at best, Wired magazine. Finally, but not at all least importantly, bookBots. Maybe the wise people who designed Hunt Library, or rather, designed Hunt Library to impress, thought that browsing through bookshelves is a pain for us students. But bookBots take away from us

an inalienable right of studenthood the right to chaotically, unpredictably stumble across new knowledge. With bookBots, our full potential — our unlimited scope to learn — is limited. BookBots take away from us the pure pleasure of holding books in our hands and feeling them out before indulging in them. They take away from us the sheer joy of chancing upon new worlds of wisdom and words that we didn’t know existed — right next to the knowledge we were seeking! BookBots are an aff ront to liv ing t he life of the mind to the f ullest, to the simple joys of life such as browsing through bookshelves. BookBots a perfect example of where technological fanaticism can lead us are alone enough a reason to disapprove of Hunt Library. This is for everyone who finds solace in the warm and cozy, golden quiet room on the east side of D.H. Hill Library. This is for everyone who gets lost in the Stacks looking for a book and ends up finding new worlds. This is for taste, for being human and for the uncompromising wonder of knowledge. A windowless pile of bricks it may be, but if D.H. Hill is the present, I shall gladly live in it.

Since moving to Raleigh, I have become familiar with the Capital Area Transit bus system — or at least the routes to Crabtree Valley. On one trip to the mall, I overheard an older woman asking for money over the phone. When the bus arrived to Crabtree Valley, a stranger handed the woman $5 bill. “I understand,” is all she said. Her generosity melted my heart. Like I said, amazing things happen on buses. “That was so nice,” I

whispered to my friend. I began to compose a tweet. This random act of kindness needed to be shared with the world. “Were you even listening?” my friend retorted. Consumed by Twitter, I missed a vital part of the woman’s phone conversation. Apparently she had mentioned having withdrawals and needing money to buy drugs before returning to the homeless shelter. It was too late. I had already sent the tweet and my followers had favorited it. My mood immediately shifted. If the stranger knew the money would be spent on drugs, why would she want to contribute to that? I concluded that she was a bad influence. A few weeks after this incident, I watched Les Misérables. In the movie, Jean Valjean is freed from slavery after serving 19 years. The only person in town willing to house the convict is bishop Myriel, and instead of repaying the bishop, Valjean steals his silverware. When Valjean is caught by police the next day, Myriel insists the silver-

ing equal to their efforts. Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law.” N.C. State has both a stellar Women’s Center and GLBT Center, the efforts of which — championed by Ashley Simmons-Rudolf and Justine Hollingshead — seek to institutionalize these same ideas, evidenced particularly by Hollingshead’s campaign to inform students about Amendment One and its implications for the GLBT community. In fact, diversity was painted across the entire Inauguration Ceremony. Richard Blanco, an openly gay Cuban-American, read his poem titled “One Change” after Obama’s speech, a poem which appealed to a unified country with “one sun,” “one ground” and “one sky.” Myrlie Evers-Williams delivered the

Inaugural Prayer and became the first woman ever to do so. Her late husband Medgar Evers died in 1963 defending the civil rights cause. Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice, swore in Vice President Joe Biden. Obama lauded the efforts of science, math and engineering. He called upon immigrants as well as U.S. citizens to push forward on these fronts, saying our journey was not over “until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country.” Perhaps he was referencing a new version of the DREAM Act, in which foreign students who earn doctorates from U.S. universities are granted citizenship automatically. Canada already enacts a similar policy. International students are a large presence on N.C. State’s campus, a high concentration of which study the very science and engineering fields that Obama was referencing. As we move into the next four years, we at Technician hope to see positive change in this country — the change that Obama claimed will come about.

ware was a gift. The bishop does not request payment for covering for Valjean. Instead, he only asks that Valjean promise to be an honest man. Years later, Valjean becomes the town’s mayor. The bottom line is that if Myriel had not given him a chance, Valjean would still be in prison. Like Valjean, the woman on the bus may have just needed a chance to become a better person. There is something about accepting help from a stranger that makes you feel more accountable for your actions — family and friends are supposed to come to your aid, but strangers owe you nothing. The stranger provided the woman with an opportunity to better herself. What she did with the money remains a mystery, but I would like to think she took the $5 and invested it in a rehabilitation program. I hope my speculations are somewhat accurate to prove, if for no other reason, that redemption is possible and to uphold my claim that amazing things happen on buses.

Coffee shop teases Bible Belt customers Kaitlin Montgomery Staff Writer

Tucked away in a parking lot off of Capital Boulevard sat an 18-foot trailer with the sign “Cup O Jane” flapping in the wind. Although many cars might have missed the small trailer, the drivers that decided to stop by were welcomed by unconventional barista service women dressed in anything from bikinis to leather and lingerie. Blair Carrieri and his partner Dominic Peterson brought their unique version of a coffee shop to Raleigh after seeing a few similar businesses in Florida. “I was a bodyguard for a lot of years until I was laid off and I needed something to do,” Carrieri said. “I had seen a couple of these when I was in Florida, and that’s what gave me the first idea.” While the name may be clever and the coffee may be good, many customers agree that the baristas are the main attraction. “It’s really a shock value,” Carrieri said. “When you drive up here you don’t see girls like that in Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts, it’s a shock. [Customers] start their day off here, and if starting the day off happens to mean looking at a pretty girl then it makes their day just a little bit better, so be it.” Carrieri has been at his current Capital Boulevard location for three months and says it took some time before the business model was up

and running. “It took us about a year to go through the city with permits and licenses,” Carrieri said. “It was because they knew what we were doing. We’re in the middle of the Bible Belt so they weren’t really into it like we were. They’re still not.” According to Carrieri, controversy regarding the business was to be expected. He understood that not everyone would see the idea in the best light. “[Critics] say what we’re doing is against Raleigh’s family values,” Carrieri said. “However, you see more on a beach or downtown on a Friday night on Glenwood. You can see more than what’s shown right here anywhere. I’ve witnessed it and anyone who’s ever gone downtown can say the same thing.” The controversy attached to Cup O Jane is what pushed Carrieri to invest in a state of the art security system.

“I have four cameras outside and I have three inside,” Carrieri said. “When you have women dressed like that you’re going to have guys, that 10 percent, that aren’t so kind-hearted.” According to Carrieri a number of people have called into the city saying they’ve seen everything from the girls prostituting out back to breasts being shown for tips. “I wasn’t kind with the cops when they investigated the prostituting claim,” Carrieri said. “One of the girls is my wife. Plus, we were open for 12 hours and I was only making about $20 a day. I told the captain that if we were doing what they were accusing us of we would be making thousands, don’t bother me for $20 a day.” The business was created for the people, mainly males, commuting to work each morning, according to Carrieri. While 10 percent of their business is women, the rest

falls to the male demographic. Carrieri estimates that 25 percent of their customers are cops and detectives who frequent Cup O Jane. “They’re people that don’t have a good minute in the day,” Carrieri said. “If we give them 10 minutes out of their day in which they’re talking or seeing something they like, that’s great.” Regardless of the customer reactions, Carrieri explained that he and his wife have worked hard to bring their creation to life. “Amy was a dancer for years and a lot of dancers aren’t smart with their money,” Carrieri said. “She saved a lot of her money and it’s that money that’s helped us with this. There are a lot of dancers out there that will make

$200 and spend $300 all in the same day. They’re just not smart about it.” According to Carrieri there are a lot of girls that get into drugs or a scene that they don’t need to be in. Carrieri has been through 15 baristas already. “Those kinds of girls are not on my timetable,” Carrieri said. “Being pretty girls that work in clubs they don’t know what Eastern Standard Time is. I call the two different times Eastern Standard Time and Stripper Time. When they’re not on time, I am not the person to say you’re so pretty you can get away with it. It just doesn’t happen.” Although Carrieri said that Cup O Jane has received criticism, he said he believes

things would be different if the people in the Triangle were not as sheltered. “When people shelter everybody from everything, you have terrible things that happen because people expect the world to be perfect,” Carrieri said. “The world isn’t perfect. If they see it and they know it, people won’t look and gawk because it will just be another part of the day. That’s what makes it different.” Carrieri said his business was never just about pretty girls or good coffee, but a marriage of the two. “I didn’t start this to put it in anyone’s face,” Carrieri said. “I did it to make a living the best way I know how.”

Making computers seem a little less scary Nikki Stoudt Life & Style Editor

Though the computer science and English departments may not be known for their collaborative efforts, one professor has been working to break down the barrier between the “hard sciences” and the humanities. In October 2012, Robert St. Amant, professor of computer science, released his first book, Computing for Ordinary Mortals, which illustrates from areas of computer science and ultimately provides a look into what drives the field of computing forward. Though he had always wanted to write, St. Amant never saw it as a true probability. “I’ve always thought, ‘I’d like to write a book some day,’” St. Amant said. “So it’s

always been in the back of my mind.” However, writing an instructional book on computation was not his initial goal. While taking a graduate writing workshop at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, St. Amant opened himself up to the world of writing. “I originally wanted to write fiction, but in the end I decided to write about what I know there’s less of that than what I don’t know,” St. Amant said. Computing for Ordinary Mortals began as a side project, but St. Amant soon found his work could be much more useful than he had expected. “As I wrote the book, I gradually realized that what I was writing about computing is really important,” St. Amant said. “There are lots of books out there about how to use computers and program

Roses are red,

computers, and they give you just enough conceptual background so that what you’re doing makes sense.” What sets his book apart, he said, is the fact that it details the human interaction with the machines that society has embraced so ardently. “The goal of my book is to bring those concepts into the foreground, because to me they’re the most interesting part,” St. Amant said. “They give you a way to think about computing. They help you understand why computers work the way they do, what’s possible and what’s impossible to do with them.” To do this, St. Amant sends his readers on a journey living vicariously through situations in which different characters must solve problems with the help of computers and computer programming. Some situations, he said, have

come from real experiences within the classroom. Because these situations can be so familiar, St. Amant plans to use examples from Computing for Ordinary Mortals in his classes as an alternative to the typical textbook. While computer science doesn’t appeal to everyone, St. Amant said his target audience is largely those who want to learn more about the field but may be intimidated by the “unforgiving nature of the modern computer.” “A lot of people are still intimidated by computers,” St. Amant said. “When you do the slightest thing a computer system doesn’t expect, it describes what’s happened with phrases like ‘fatal error’ and ‘illegal instruction’ and ‘kernel panic.’ It might ask whether you want to ‘abort,’ ‘terminate’ or ‘kill’ a process. All this jargon makes computers seem less forgiving than they really should be. I wanted to bring across ideas about computing in a way that wasn’t so demanding and critical.” In the future, St. Amant hopes to expand upon his writing portfolio with a genre not totally removed from the technological. “I spent a few days last summer plotting out a science fiction/fantasy book for teenagers the kind of book I liked to read when I was growing up that involved computer concepts, but I have no idea whether it would be readable or even whether I’d be able to write it,” St. Amant said. According to St. Amant, readers do not have to be in a computer science related field to enjoy Computing for Ordinary Mortals, though he imagines his main audience is


Robert St. Amant, associate professor in the computer science, reads a passage from his lasted publication Computing for Ordinary Mortals Jan. 14. “I wanted people to understand that computers are not just hardware and software,” Amant said “I wanted to show the other areas like artificial intelligence and what that has to offer.” Amant also said that the entire process took him about 3 years to complete because he only worked on it on the weekends.

one that already likes to read popular science pieces about how the world works. “I think you can get some good intuitions about computing with a few hours of casual reading,” St. Amant said. “You won’t have the same background that someone with a degree in computer science has, but that’s ok no one reads A Brief History of Time [by Stephen Hawking], for example, and expects to come away being a professional physicist.” No matter what literary genres find their way onto your bookshelves, St. Amant hopes the general public

will take a step out of their comfort zone to look at the interactions between mankind and arguably one of the most influential inventions in history. “Computing happens in a world of information and information processing, and learning about computing is something like finding out that at the microscopic level biology looks very different from our everyday experience,” St. Amant said. “Computing is something like that familiar on the surface but interestingly different underneath.”�




Aiming for the right to protect with guns Nicky Vaught Deputy News Editor

The head of a jackalope, a mythical creature, is mounted above a television screen in a student’s living room. It complements other hunting and typical college paraphernalia decorating the house. The head is the product of the combined efforts of Ross Pilotte, who harvested deer antlers for the creature, and a friend who donated the head of a jackrabbit. Pilotte, a junior in fisheries and wildlife sciences, is the president of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus. While he does enjoy hunting occasionally, his motivation to lead the club comes from a desire for protection. “Pretty much what we’re doing is advocating for our right to self-defense on educational property,” Pilotte said. Currently, state law prohibits the concealed carrying of weapons on any school or university campus. “We carry our concealed firearms with proper licenses, of course, anywhere else we go,” Pilotte said. “You can carry it on the left side of Hillsborough [Street], but you cross over, there’s that imaginary line, and you can no longer protect yourself. Pilotte was the victim of attempted robbery on campus last February. He said this motivated him to become more involved in the club. “You need to rely on Campus Police, who when you need help in seconds, are minutes away,” Pilotte said.

The past year and a half, the club has grown from 12 active members to 68, with about 400 total members, according to Pilotte. As club president, Pilotte works with Student Government as well as local government and police toward achieving club goals. “The support from the general community has been excellent,” Pilotte said. According to Pilotte, there has not been much progress in North Carolina in terms of carrying rights, but there has been in other states. “If we need to take another class … we will, if we need to get another license, we will,” Pilotte said of the club’s willingness to cooperate to reach its goals. The club is currently working with another grassroots organization to introduce a bill into the North Carolina House of Representatives this upcoming session, which would permit concealed carry on campus. “Whether or not it passes is anybody’s guess,” Pilotte said. “[In] the states that do allow it on campus, there’s not been a single incident,” Seth Whitley, a member of the club and sophomore in agricultural business management, said. Whitley, who has gone hunting with his father since he was 4 years old, got his Concealed Carry Permit when he turned 21. He carries a Ruger SR9c pistol almost everywhere he legally can. At his home in Albemarle, Whitley has set up a shooting

While off campus, Whitley carries a Ruger SR9C compact 9 mm pistol. He decided he needed the gun for protection after several banks near campus were robbed and armed suspects were reported to be on campus.

range in his backyard with friends. “[My gun] is something I should be able to have on campus since I can carry it anywhere else in the state,” Whitley said. “It doesn’t make sense to me that people think just because we’re on campus we’re going to go on shooting sprees.” Student living quarters vary on gun rules, according to Whitley. For instance, the Gorman Street Village does not allow firearms, whereas University Apartments does allow them. To advocate for the club’s goals, members have set up booths on campus and at gun

shows, according to Whitley. The club has also adopted a section of Tryon Road, between Lake Wheeler and Avent Ferry. Although only required to clean it twice a year, members clean it four to five times a year, Pilotte said. “People need to understand that we’re licensed by the state,” Pilotte said. “We’ve gone through all the necessary mental health and criminal background checks. We’re not vigilantes, we’re not criminals. All we want to do is protect ourselves and our fellow student body.”

into that margin when No. 3 Mudge topped Monette in three sets. Powell followed by evening the score for the Pack at the top spot, coming back to knock off MacTaggart after dropping the first set 4-6, 6-4, 6-1. “I was kind of struggling, so I decided to work his forehand more in the second,” Powell said. “Then in the third set I took control. Staying out there and keeping on grinding was the difference.” No. 4 Weigel gave State a 3-2 lead, recovering from a lost first set of his own to defeat Tasic 6-7(4), 6-3, 7-5.

the first. “I think we just lost a little bit of focus on a few possessions,” Harper said. “We knew those kids could get hot.” Once the Seminoles took the lead they quickly went up by eight points and held the lead to finish out the game. State is now 8-11 overall and 0-7 in conference play. The Pack takes on Virginia

Tech at home Thursday. “I’m hurt for our players, hurt for our staff, because we continue to prove we can compete,” Harper said. “We just keep going back every day and asking our players to keep believing in what we’re doing because they’re right on the edge of getting it done.”

The freshman from Germany held a 5-2 lead in the final set and twice served for the match, failing to capitalize each time as Tasic tied it up. But Weigel broke Tasic once again and this time served it out, punctuating the win with an overhead smash. Indiana evened things up by virtue of a 6-2, 6-4 win by Bednarczyk over Weber at No. 5. That brought it down to the No. 6 match between State freshman Simon Norenius and Indiana’s Elliott Yee. Though it was the decisive match of the day, it was the least competitive as Norenius rolled over Yee, 6-2, 6-1 to clinch the victory for the Pack. “They’ve really improved over the past four months,”

Choboy said of his freshmen. “They’re great players to begin with, and it’s good that they’re in this situation.” The Wolfpack will travel to Oxford, Miss., from Jan. 25-28 to compete in the ITA Kick-Off event, hosted by the University of Mississippi. Also competing in Oxford are Columbia, Louisville and the home standing Rebels. The winner of the four-team event will advance to the ITA National Indoor Championships. “It’s a big tournament,” Powell said. “There are a lot of good teams in it, we just have to keep fighting hard and executing.” State’s next home match is Feb. 1 against Northwestern.

by Clemson forward K.J. McDaniels on the play. The ensuing free throw pushed State back in front 60-57 with less than two minutes remaining. “We should be a team that executed under duress, in late game situations,” Gottfried said. “Richard [Howell] jumped up there on that one play [with 2:40 remaining and the score 55-54 in favor of N.C. State] and dunked it.” L ater, a not her t h reepointer by Jennings closed the Wolfpack’s advantage to

Wearing its black uniforms for the first time this season, and playing on head coach Mark Gottfried’s 49th birthday, No. 14 N.C. State improved to 15-3, 4-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference with a hard-fought 66-62 victory over the Clemson Tigers (10-7, 2-3) Sunday evening at a sold-out PNC Arena. State scored the first 10 points of the evening and led 13-2 after the first media timeout — a start highlighted by freshman guard Rodney Purvis sinking three 3-pointers in the first 4:30 minutes of action. Clemson fought back, however, and would remain a stone’s throw from State for the rest of the evening. The Tigers were led by senior center Devin Booker, who vexed the Wolfpack the entire opening half with an array of jumpers and dunks. The Whitmire, S.C., native tallied 18 of his game-high 27 points in the first half, singlehandedly keeping the Tigers in the game. “Booker was really good for them, really good,” Gottfried said. “We had trouble at times keeping him from catching the ball where he wanted to catch it.” The Pack countered Booker with freshman forward T.J. Warren, who scored 14 of his teamleading 21 points in the opening stanza. “[Warren] gave us a great lift off the bench, on a night when other players weren’t scoring as well,” Gottfried said. “That’s the sign of a good team, to spread the scoring around.” “T.J. came out and had a breakout game,” junior guard Lorenzo Brown said. “I’m proud of him.” Clemson remained undeterred and were effectively counterpunching the Pack throughout the second half, buoyed by sev-

Coming off of a tight 4-3 win over Penn State in State College, Pa., this weekend, the No. 40 N.C. State men’s tennis team faced its second-straight Big Ten opponent and defeated No. 22 Indiana in its home opener Monday afternoon at the Andy Andrews Indoor Tennis Stadium. The win brings State’s record to 2-0 in the young season. “We told them that every match is going to be like this,” head coach Jon Choboy said. “It’s really going to come down to the wire.” The Hoosiers claimed the doubles point to begin the match, winning two of three rubbers. Their No. 2 team of Daniel Bednarczyk and Sam Monette made quick work of State sophomores Austin Powell and Beck Bond in an 8-0 romp. The Wolfpack rebounded shortly thereafter, as the No. 3 team of sophomore Robbie Mudge and freshman Thomas Weigel topped Indiana’s Dimitrije Tasic and Chris Essick by a score of 8-5. Indiana took the early advantage at No. 1 as Josh MacTaggart and Isade Juneau defeated senior Dave Thomson and junior Sean Weber to give the Hoosiers a 1-0 lead. Indiana broke Weber’s serve in the first game of the rubber and made it stand up in an 8-6 victory heading into singles play. Indiana doubled its lead as Juneau earned a three-set win over Thomson at No. 2, winning 4-6, 6-1, 6-1. The Wolfpack cut

The diminutive point guard from Augusta, Ga., finished with 16 points, 10 points above his season average, and two assists. “[Hall] is a tough guy that plays hard,” Clemson head coach Brad Brownell said. “He has a good level of basketball IQ that makes him a good player.” Senior forward Richard Howell also extended his streak of doubledoubles to six with 11 points and 12 rebounds. It was Howell’s 10th double-double of the season, the most in a season since J.J. Hickson had 10 in the 2007-08 season.

QUOTE OF THE DAY “... We are struggling to win a game.” Kellie Harper, women’s basketball head coach

N.C. State played its fourth ranked team in six games, and the grueling schedule took its toll on the team once again as State failed to finish the game down the stretch. No. 22 Florida State overtook the Pack in the final three minutes and held on to win, 82-74. “Obviously right now it’s hard for us to close out a game, we are struggling to win a game,” head coach Kellie Harper said. “The confidence has been a little shaky going down the stretch.” Harper decided to change her rotation and starting lineup. Harper opted to go with the taller guard, junior guard Breezy Williams (5-11) over redshirt sophomore guard Len’Nique Brown (5-5). Redshirt junior forward Lakeesa Daniel played 18 minutes, eight more than her average. “When we got home from Maryland I wanted to make sure our practices were good,” Harper said. “I told the team I was going to determine the starting lineup based on body language, work ethic, leadership, communication and all the intangibles.” The added height to the lineup helped the Pack out-rebound the Seminoles, 40-37; however, the team’s usual problems were pres-

ent throughout the game. Florida State took 40 free throw attempts compared to just 11 for the Pack. The Pack also turned the ball over 24 times. State was able to control the flow for most of the game. Williams provided a quick spark for the Pack as she scored five of the team’s first seven points. Sophomore guard Krystal Barrett also helped increase the early lead. Barrett finished with a career-high 10 points.

The Seminoles fought hard to tie the game at 33 with 41 seconds remaining in the first half, but a steal by senior guard Marissa Kastanek and two free throws from Barrett put the Pack up, 35-33, at the end of the half.
