Oblinger said. “The department has planned it so it’s not a huge expenditure of new resources,” Oblinger said. “They have their laboratory space, they have their lecture space, and they have over time built the faculty capacity.” And the benefits to students in CALS will be immense, Oblinger said. “For students that come to us in biology, there are so many options,” Oblinger said. “[The genetics major] will help those students who say ‘I’m a biology major’ to differentiate the discipline.

University studies possibility of creating South Korea campus University to conduct feasibility study James Cox Staff Writer

The South Korean government has incited the University to open a campus in South Korea’s Incheon Free Economic Zone, Larry Nielsen, provost and executive vice-chancellor, said. The Incheon Free Economic Zone is a $200 billion dollar project the South Korean government has created to build a business, residential, and educational city that is “basically Research Triangle Park on steroids,” according to Nielsen. The south Koreans have also invited Stony Brook University, the University of Southern California, the University of Missouri and Georgia Tech University to open campuses in Incheon along with South Korean universities

Li said the idea behind that is to not put another burden on students. Li is also in charge of deciding what degrees will be offered at the proposed South Korea Campus. He said degrees in biotechnology, engineering, management and science are being considered. “Since it’s off campus, we may develop something new,” he said. Li said he feels it is important for students to study abroad, saying it may become mandatory. “A few years ago, a laptop was suggested, but not required.

Abu Ghraib reopened with new face

The Iraq prison previously known as Abu Ghraib has just been reopened by the Iraqi government. The jail was used by both Saddam Hussein and US troops in many inhumane ways. Torture, abuse and execution without any trial have all taken place behind those bars. But now, Baghdad Central Prison, as it has been renamed, has undergone a face-lift. The renovated jail now has water fountains, a garden and a gym complete with weights and sport memorabilia. SOURCE: CNN

Child charged with killing father’s girlfriend

An 11-year-old boy, whose name has not been released to the public due to his age, has been charged with killing his father’s pregnant girlfriend, police say. The boy allegedly shot the woman at point-blank range. The boy has been charged with one count each of criminal homicide and homicide of an unborn child. Pennsylvania law states anyone over 10 years old will be charged as an adult in any homicide cases. If convicted, the boy will spend a maximum of the rest of his life in jail.

Amber Leeanne DuBois has now been missing for 10 days after she never made it to school last Friday the 13th. The FBI is assisting local police in a massive search for the 14-year-old girl. Her cell phone was turned on once, the day after she disappeared, for around 20 seconds, but her phone has not been on since, giving authorities no GPS fix on her location. Both the girl’s mother and boyfriend have taken lie-detector tests and have passed. DuBois’ parents say she was abducted, because she would never stay this long away from home without notifying them.


Explosion rocks Cairo streets

One woman was killed and 21 other people were wounded in a blast which rocked the streets of Cairo, the capital of Egypt, Sunday. 14 of the people injured or killed were foreigners, most of which were European and German. Two people, a man and a woman, were arrested after the bomb attack. Another bomb that did not detonate was found near a mosque located near the Khan el-Khalili bazaar, a big market which also attracts tourists. Injury reports are still coming in to the Egyptian government.

Poole golf course, but Oblinger said weather has delayed the project’s final details from completion. “It’s actually installed and completed, but now we have to let the turf grow around the greens and fairways and that takes a little warmth,” Oblinger said. “We have to have a few days of 65 degrees, so that whatever type of grass it is can have some time to grow. That will result in the greening up of the golf course.” The first official round of golf is scheduled for July 30 with golf legend Arnold Palmer making an appearance.

Oblinger said while Palmer may not play a round, he’ll offer tips to the golfers taking part in the inaugural tee time. “He’ll go from hole to hole and fairway to fairway teeing the green and giving pointers to the foursomes playing,” Oblinger said.

Li said companies are looking for students who can work anywhere and studying abroad makes you more marketable. “This semester, we began what is called the Global Perspective Certificate that goes on your diploma,” Li said. The Global Perspectives Certificate Web page stated for students to be eligible for the certificate, students must have international experience, complete the academic coursework, participate in service activities, and complete a final project. “Our students need to be exposed to different cultures,” Li said.

He continued to say while there is nothing wrong with Europe, there is more economic growth in Asia. “South Korea has a 19 percent growth rate, and Europe has a two percent growth rate,” Li said.

N.C. colleges must have same standards THE ISSUE:

Community colleges and UNC schools do not have the same standards when it comes to admitting illegal immigrants.


Both community colleges and UNC System schools must have the same standards for illegal immigrants who want to attend them and put people who are of legal status first.


Institutions of higher learning in North Carolina must give priority to people who are in the U.S. legally, and other avenues must be explored for those who want to come to the U.S. for college.


.C. Senator Philip Berger introduced Senate Bill 155, entitled “Community Colleges Can’t Admit Illegal Aliens,” Feb. 12, which would prohibit illegal immigrants from attending community colleges permanently. Community colleges do not allow illegal immigrants to attend and UNC System schools do admit illegal immigrants, albeit by paying out-of-state tuition even if they reside in North Carolina. Community colleges and the UNC System should be consistent and have the same requirements for people who want to attend its schools who are not in the United States legally. Though the community col-

lege system and UNC System are separate entities, thousands of students attend one or both. Community college is often a stepping stone for students who go on to attend UNC System schools, many of whom will attend N.C. State, and both need to have the same standards if they wish to have relationships and smooth transitions from one to the other. There should also be more opportunities for those who want to come to the United States and attend college. Community colleges and UNC System schools should explore different avenues

for educating people who want to come to the United States to get an education. This could decrease the number of immigrants resorting to coming to the country illegally. Illegal immigrants are already here, and the problem of illegal immigration is not going to go away. If North Carolina allows them to attend institutes of higher learning, then put people who are here legally before illegal immigrants. Although it is ultimately up to the state to ban or allow illegal immigrants from attending schools in North Carolina, the

UNC System and community colleges must give priority to those here in the United States legally. People who are in the U.S. legally must get the opportunity of receiving an education from schools in North Carolina before those who are not. UNC schools give priority to students from North Carolina, so it only makes sense to put people of legal status first. There cannot be just a yes and no answer to the question of whether schools in North Carolina should educate illegal immigrants. This is a heated topic, and no one answer can blanket the issue. There must be discussion from both sides to find a viable solution.


Don’t jump on the Google bandwagon


s you may have heard, Facebook got into a little bit of trouble last week after a Feb. 15 post at the Consumerist that discussed the social networking site’s new terms of service. W hen t he dust settled, Facebook’s Chief Privacy Paul McCauley Officer, Chris Senior Staff Columnist Kelly, said users have and always will own the data they post on the site. The supreme law of the Facebook land, Kelly said, was and always will be the terms each user sets via the privacy settings on the site. Privacy crisis averted, right? Not at N.C. State. We’ve had a history of issues regarding online privacy on campus. Students have been seen as a target for lawsuits from the Recording Industry Association of America, which was based off searches through IP addresses. Three years ago, resident advisers used Facebook pictures as proof of underage drinking in dorms. And now, we are looking to switch e-mail services away from the current Cyrus-powered webmail system. The leading candidate, unsurprisingly, is Google. Now don’t get me wrong: Google practically owns me. I use Gmail, Google Chat, Google Docs, Google Maps, Google Scholar, Google Calendar and Google Reader. And if there ever was a Google Alarm Clock or Google Diet, I’d probably use those too. And the one time my Gmail account was down for a few hours, I was twitching like a bunny rabbit on crystal meth due to e-mail withdrawal. Yes, Google is a ubiquitous part of our new society, quickly entering regular conversation (and the dictionary) as a verb to describe how anyone with a computer can


find the answer to any question. But therein lies the problem — Google owns me, meaning I’m subject to the terms of service. And much like the Force, there is a dark side to Google. The obvious problem is the terms of service — were we to switch to Google’s Apps for Education program, we’d definitely be subject to the terms of use. While they are quite reasonable (albeit full of the legal mumbojumbo you’d expect), they still move some of the power regarding online transactions to a third party that has less of a stake in attempting to guarantee the sanctity of your webmail. Google is also a bit more of a target for hackers, phishers, spammers and the like — they warehouse data for a lot of people. If you don’t believe me, consider this: in July of 2005, Google and Yahoo were competitive in the search index market, with Google holding a 36.5 percent to 30.5 percent lead. Today, the gap is 63 percent to 21 percent. It’s clear Google is starting to monopolize the search engine market, in good part due to brand recognition. Equally transparent is the fact that people here at NCSU may be screaming for the Google ice cream simply because of that recognition. I urge caution: do we really want the University to move our e-mail data to a service we don’t have complete control of? More importantly, do we need the University to give us Google accounts when we have the freedom to sign up for one ourselves? We should deliberate and consider all options, including making University-provided e-mail an optional utility available to all students and faculty before we throw everyone on the Google train and get going with a whoot-whoot onto the increasingly dangerous information superhighway.

Be open to discuss issues on racism


find myself somewhat sensitive to comments that betray ethnic prejudice in the person making the comment, and I never quite know how to respond. On t he whole, people are pretty careful Jay Goel to avoid Staff Columnist racial controversy when it comes to discussing black issues. As Attorney General Eric Holder recently put it, we realize “certain subjects are off limits” and are averse to commenting on such issues. The same cannot be said for prejudice related to sexual orientation, where one still commonly hears the word “gay” used in the pejorative. That said, there is an active community of people who are working to dispel that kind of prejudice. And it is often the case that comments about black issues and comments about GBLT issues spark rage. Instilled in our daily code is the idea that white people are not allowed to talk about affirmative action. Straight people cannot express an opinion on gay marriage. And because of that - because of the outrage over someone “not” in the group having opinions about people who “are” in the group, people avoid talking about the issues altogether.

live our lives, we have also extinguished open discussion about these issues. Holder said essentially this on Wednesday. As it stands now, we cannot be frank about the way we discuss race and ethnicity and equality in this country - at least, not without passions running high. Holder posits - and he is correct - that we should be able to “confront racial issues freely and without fear.” Perhaps it is better not to get upset about every comment that plays on ethnic stereotypes. As co-presidents Andrew Poon and Betty Cao of the N.C. State Asian Student Association describe it, oversensitivity does little to help people overcome prejudice. For them, it’s about “picking your battles.” But the idea of “picking our battles” implies that merely mentioning an inequitable situation - bringing a perceived racist remark or action into the light - will cause harm. Poon and Cao agree that when someone experiences any particularly egregious form of prejudice, then he/she should speak out about it. Which means that person must make a judgement call between being over-sensitive and confronting actual ignorance. Of course, this is an impossible distinction to make. Moreover, it is a distinction that

we should not have to worry about making. Somewhere, we need to find a happy medium between “not tolerating discrimination” and “being able to talk about the issue.” So far, however, we have only instilled in our culture that if somebody cries racism whether or not it happened - one must express nothing short of rage. So often, however, rage displaces thought. And it assuredly acts to censor people from expressing thoughts, insights and ne w ide a s in the realm of discriminat ion in the United States. I agree that students shou ld b e outraged about discrimination. But that behavior — the subtle ways society manipulates its social structure — is a much more nuanced issue which deserves more than a knee-jerk reaction. Progress will be when we can talk about our own proclivities to discriminate without fear of being lynched. Until then, at best, we will only be able to legislate against the symptoms of discrimination. At worst, we will move that kind of behavior from the workplace to the weekends — which hardly fixes anything. Photo Editor

Artspace artists live the creative life Artspace gives artists a place to work, interact with public Sarah Ewald Staff Writer

From painter Jerry Mulligan in An American in Paris to filmmaker Mark Cohen in Rent, there have been many depictions of the “starving artist� lifestyle. Mulligan and Cohen often went without adequate food and shelter to practice and perfect their craft. And there was the chance that their work might go unnoticed. Downtown Raleigh’s Artspace, located at 201 E. Davie Street, is a haven for emerging artists. Artspace operates under the openstudio system, where artists work in their designated studios which are open to the public during business hours and on the first Friday night of every month. Paris Alexander, a sculptor who works in stone, came to Artspace about 12 years ago looking for fellow artists and a studio space. He put his name in to join and was accepted. Alexander said he has always been interested in art and had always wanted to pursue it as a career. “Sculpture is the ultimate goal, and everyone else is frustrated sculptors,� Alexander said, citing the example of painters building up their paint to make it appear more realistic. Alexander was initially interested in sculpture when he was little, making things that his older brothers would eventually use as targets for BB gun practice. He first worked in wood, but was drawn to stone because of its ability to be displayed in large public spaces. “Nothing lasts as long as a piece

of stone. It’s a balance, being a permanent monument and an antithesis to death,� Alexander said. In college, Alexander did not find anyone teaching stone sculpture, so he taught himself using library books about the stone carving revival of the 1920s and 1930s. For Alexander, the greatest sacrifice has been financial. Prior to being a full-time artist, he used his undergraduate biology degree to work in chemotherapy research at Duke. After both working and going to school fulltime, Alexander began thinking of what he wanted to do. When he decided to become a full-time artist, he sold everything he had and moved into a warehouse studio to live and work. Alexander said being a fulltime artist is a large monetary commitment, and that he learned to budget out his money early on. “You have to treat it like a small business. Know that you won’t make money for the first two to three years, and you have to make a certain amount to break even,� he said. Mixed-media artist Melinda Fine moved in mid-December 2008, and said she expects to work at Artspace for the entire year. She shares her studio with a fellow artist, a painter. Fine deals mainly with typography, which stems from her time studying graphic design at the College of Design, and incorporates other materials into her work. One method Fine uses involves layering different mediums. She lays the type on paper that has been prepared with gesso and applies acrylic or oil pastel over it. Fine’s work deals mainly with describing the space between emotion


Linda Ruth Dickenson, a painter at Artspace, works on a painting. “I don’t stop working at five,� Dickenson said. “At least in my experience, I’m always working. Whether it’s painting or planning, a creative is always thinking, looking, considering — you’re never done working.�

and expression, bringing in the typography for symbolizing the expression of articulating thoughts. Fine said she initially came to Artspace to find community ties, since it is easy to become isolated as an artist. With Artspace being completely devoted to art, Fine said that going to her studio there formalized the entire process. “When your studio is in your house, it’s easy to be distracted and you can do everything but work,� Fine said.

She said that she works more efficiently and creates more at her Artspace studio. Fine’s educational background includes degrees in English, psychology and creative writing. She taught graphic design and typography at Meredith College before coming to Artspace. Fine is currently still doing free-lance work while making the transition to becoming a full-time artist. Painter Linda Ruth Dickinson has been a member of Artspace since 1990. Dickinson said being an artist runs in her family —

her grandmother was an artist in the 1930s in Chicago. Born in Taiwan, Dickinson said, “My aesthetic influence was informed by Chinese culture, and I saw Western artists later. I was influenced by calligraphy, architecture, silks and brocades.� Dickinson is mostly known for her work of horizon-scapes, which she enjoys making because she wants create broad areas of color. “The dialogue between heaven and earth is a very Asian concept, with the division in the center

being the horizon line,� Dickinson said. Dickinson’s paint strokes are inf luenced by the strokes of Chinese calligraphy. She moves her brush as she saw men move their brushes while writing out scriptures for Chinese New Year banners. On sacrificing for her art, Dickinson said, “You give up a lot, but you gain a lot. One thing you give up is your health because you’re devoting all your time to your craft.�

APPLE A DAY Antibodies fight flu Antibodies may be the key in fighting influenza. Research published this week shows that mice that are injected with flu antibodies were protected from bird flu and other influenza A viruses. Testing has not been performed on humans yet, but scientists say they are optimistic. The flu kills 250,000 people worldwide each flu season.

he headline of this critique is somewhat misleading, due to the fact that it’s very hard to rate just local beers since only a few here and there share the same characteristics. A tasting of India Pale Ales would have yielded the most beers to taste, but still only five or so would have been available.



Instead, the tasting panel drank 10 different local beers of varying types, less to rate them and more to convince students that the local industry is booming and producing good stuff. The tasting took place at the Flying Saucer, which

Chris Matthews has a man crush MSNBC talk show host Chris Matthews said during the primary elections that when President Barack Obama defeated Secretary Hillary Clinton he “felt this thrill going up [his] leg.” Former CBS correspondent Bernard Goldberg has taken issue with Matthews’ statement and others that show liberal bias in the media. Goldberg said the media gave Obama “slobbering” coverage and said of Matthews’ statement, “that’s not commentary, that’s a man-crush.” Goldberg has written a book on the subject of liberal bias in the media titled A Slobbering Love Affair.

When TV goes digital The change from analog television to digital is thrilling for many who are tired of fuzzy pictures and adjusting antennas. One man in Missouri is not happy with the switch however. After many TV stations switched to digital Feb. 17, cutting off analog transmissions, a 70-year-old man shot his TV. Apparently he had been unable to get his DTV converter box to work. The man was charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm.

CAROLINA PALE ALE Who: Carolina Brewing Company Where: Holly Springs ABV: 5.1 percent Brewer’s description: An American style pale ale with a medium-light body. Pleasing bitterness, aroma and lingering hop taste. They said: “The aftertaste kind of kills it for me” “I can drink this for a few rounds” “Only slightly hoppy” “A good everyday beer” “Seems like a decent local example of a pale ale” Bottom line: Easy drinking and smooth.

This week in history Feb. 23, 1997 - Scottish scientists announce what they have kept secret for seven months: that they have cloned adult sheep DNA and produces a healthy sheep named Dolly. Feb. 24, 1987 - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar hits his first three-point shot. Up till then, he had scored 36,000 points but had scored only two points at a time. Feb. 25, 1870 - Hiram Revels becomes the first black U.S. senator, as the nation enters the Reconstruction period following the Civil War.

serves flights, or tastes, of beers and has a decent offering of local beers. Tasters rated things like smoothness and how well the beer fit its taste profile, like stout, porter, etc., but because of the nature of the tasting, those things turned out to be secondary.



Gregg Museum of Art & Design Director Charlotte Vestal Brown will retire from the position Friday after 26 years of service. Brown is credited with turning the small art collection into a 4,420 square foot museum with more than 20,000 pieces.


GAELIC ALE Who: Highland Brewing Co. Where: Asheville ABV: 5.8 percent Brewer’s Description: American ale, featuring a rich malty body and complex hop flavor. They said: “I really like it” “Associate this with Ireland and I’ll beat you” “Decent” “I keep it in my fridge, but realize that it isn’t as good as I thought” Bottom line: More like an IPA, this one went half and half with our tasters.

Feb. 26, 1993 - A terrorist bomb explosion kills five people and badly damages the World Trade Center in NYC Feb. 27, 1922 - The United States Supreme Court Declares the 19th Amendment constitutional, thereby guaranteeing women’s voting rights.

Who: Foothills Brewing Where: Winston Salem What: ABV- 9.5 percent Brewer’s Description: High level of bitterness, but is balanced with malt. They said: “I like the aftertaste” “Thick head” “Floral undertones” “Citrus taste lingers” “It’s like a grapefruit was squeezed into the beer” Bottom line: It’ll get you drunk. Citrus tones are nice.

BAD PENNY BROWN ALE Who: Big Boss Brewing Co. Where: Raleigh ABV: 5.5 percent Brewer’s Description: Slightly sweet with a caramel and dark fruit finish. They said: “Me likey” “It has a nice chocolate taste” “Very nice dark ale” “Too bossy” “Balanced” “Decent brown ale” “Copper taste, I like it” Bottom line: A balanced brown ale, not too heavy.

BLACK MOUNTAIN BITTER PALE ALE Who: Highland Brewing Co. Where: Asheville ABV: Unknown Brewer’s Description: Organic beer, lightly hopped but on the dry side. They said: “Has a nice head” “Very weak” “No real taste” “It’s boring” “Weak” “Highland gets repetitive” Bottom line: Not an exciting choice, but kudos for being organic.

The most important thing is that no taster hated any of the beers, and all of them walked away from the tasting with one or two new beers on their top-10 list. The bottom line is this: North Carolina beers, in general, rock. More than a dozen brewers produce a range of pale ales, porters, IPA’s, stouts, brown ales, golden ales and others. There’s one for every beer drinker, from the novice to the snob — and what better way to support the N.C. economy than drinking local beer? Just remember to do it legally and responsibly.

KASHMIR IPA Who: Highland Brewing Co. Where: Asheville ABV: 5.6 percent Brewer’s Description: Brilliant, dry pale ale with an aggressive hop character. They said: “Could be the Coors Light of IPAs, not much taste or flavor” “Light on the flavor” “The rich snob’s PBR” “It looks like piss and it kind of tasted like it” Bottom line: Highland’s Gaelic is a better choice

MILK STOUT Who: The Duck Rabbit Craft Brewery Where: Farmville ABV: 5.7 percent Brewer’s Description: Traditional full-bodied stout with subtle sweetness. They said: “Very nice and smooth” “Has a coffee finish” “The most subtle stout I’ve ever tasted” “Sweeter, like chocolate milk” “Could replace my morning trip to Starbucks” Bottom line: One of the favorites — a good sipping beer

WHITE WOLF GOLDEN ALE Who: White Wolf Beer Co. Where: Wilmington What: ABV: 5.5 Brewer’s Description: Medium body, deep color with a rich malty aroma. They said: “Not much to say” “Fruity” “Drying on the palate” “This would be nice to start off a night” “I really like the taste” “Light and fruity” Bottom line: An easy drinking beer that’s more sweet than bitter.

CAROLINA WINTER PORTER Who: Carolina Brewing Co. Where: Holly Springs ABV: 5.0 percent Brewer’s Description: A balance of roasted malt flavor, hop bitterness and spicy hop aroma. They said: “Good” “Coffee tones” Bottom line: Again most tasters forgot to comment, but they scored it high on smoothness and overall taste.

SEXUAL CHOCOLATE IMPERIAL STOUT Who: Foothills Brewing Where: Winston-Salem ABV: 9.75 percent Brewer’s Description: Big chocolate aroma with notes of molasses, espresso, toffee and dark fruit. They said: “That’s what she said” Bottom line: The tasters were tipsy by this point. Thus, the lack of mature comments. But the ratings show they liked it.

At the end of the first half, Virginia closed the Packâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to only four points going into the locker room, 33-29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We play a lot of games where we have big leads and end up losing. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re learning how to win and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what we did tonight,â&#x20AC;? Williams said.

In practice the Wolfpack has been working on their offense to minimize second half disappointments, which have become typical this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach makes us run our offense to perfection,â&#x20AC;? Horner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We scrimmage with four minutes on the clock.

Wolfpack starts season cold

Pack plowed 30-9 at home Wrestling falls in finale versus Old Dominion

Success in early innings does not lead to victories for the Pack in the opening tournament of the season

Elliot Borman Staff writer

The wrestling team finished the regular season Saturday with a 30-9 home loss to Old Dominion in Reynolds Coliseum. After being plagued by injuries throughout the year, the Pack was able to finish their season with key contributors back on the mat. Junior Darrion Caldwell, who had suffered back spasms throughout February, returned to give the Wolfpack one of its three wins on the nightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an 8-3 decision over Joey Metzler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We realize that we are not the best dual meet team, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a bunch of individuals who can compete for ACC titles,â&#x20AC;? Caldwell, who improved to 30-1 on the season, said. With the victory, Caldwell becomes only the second wrestler in school history with multiple

Jonathan B. Laughrun Despite building early leads in all three games of the home tournament, the baseball team (1-2) was not able to survive the late innings in the Friday and Saturday games. The starting pitching for the Pack was on point while the middle relief struggled, partially due to the cold weather as the high for the weekend was 53 degrees, according to coach Elliott Avent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been fortunate enough this preseason to pitch a lot of warm weather,â&#x20AC;? Avent said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little more difficult for them to pitch

Of the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10 losses this season, the Pack (15-10 overall, 5-7 ACC) led at halftime in five of those games yet couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t close out the win. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Virginia (9-14 overall, 3-9 ACC) looked like it might parallel Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Feb. 8 contest against Virginia Tech in which the Wolfpack led by 18 with 13:33 left in regulation but went on to lose 91-87 in overtime. Yet on Saturday, the Pack didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blow their lead, holding on to defeat the Cavaliers 72-67. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish we could hold on to a lead,â&#x20AC;? freshman C.J. Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But you know teams are going to make their runs, as long as you win the game thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all that matters.â&#x20AC;? As fans watched Virginiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading scorer Sylven Landesberg hit two free throws with seven seconds left in regulation, Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead dwindled down to one. Senior Courtney Fells, who had the job of defending Landesberg all afternoon, responded with two free throws of his own. A Fellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intentional foul put Landesberg back on the line for a one-and-one. He missed his first attempt, and Fells pulled down the rebound, was subsequently fouled and knocked down two more free throws down to secure the Wolfpack win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone who can make a play is the difference between wining and losing games, and Fells made two,â&#x20AC;? coach Sidney Lowe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Landesberg is an outstanding player, and Fells did a good job chasing him around and making it tough for him, which was key to the game.â&#x20AC;? The Wolfpack held Virginia scoreless during the first six minutes of play and began the half on a 15-2 run. In the second half, the pack once again found some early momentum, going on a 17-4 run in the first seven minutes. The tides turned twice for the Pack, as

30-win seasons. The Wolfpack must now focus their attention on the ACC tournament held March 7 in Blacksburg, Va. The team has increased their practice work load by adding morning practice to their regiment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We picked it up this past week. We started doing a lot of work in the mornings on our own,â&#x20AC;? redshirt senior 157-pounder Kody Hamrah said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the ACCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s [and] thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting ready for. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got it focused in our minds, and that is really what matters from here on out.â&#x20AC;? Although the Old Dominion loss was Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seventh consecutive defeat in dual matches, coach Carter Jordan said the Wolfpack (4-15-1) are improving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There has been a lot of improvement from last week to this week, so I was very pleased with that,â&#x20AC;? Jordan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to continue to struggle, conWRESTLING continued page 7
