A number of issues regarding the University of Northern Iowa Study Abroad Center were brought up during a faculty senate consultative session on Oct. 22. These issues included the restructuring of the center, faculty compensation for short-term summer programs and the creation of a faculty oversight committee. Craig Klafter, associate provost for international programs, told faculty senate during the session that the Study Abroad Center recently underwent restructuring. “UNI is handling study abroad in a way that may be unique in the world,” Klafter told the senate. According to Klafter, the system in place was that outgoing exchange students paid tuition to fund the operation of the Study Abroad office, while a substantial scholarship budget was provided from set-aside funds to pay for the tuition of incoming

exchange students who were charged nonresident tuition. Klafter said other universities, and now UNI, have outgoing students pay tuition into a fund that pays for incoming students, who are now charged in-state tuition. “I have implemented this change with the support of Provost ( Gloria Gibson), and we saved an excess of $400,000 in scholarship funds,” Klafter said. The study abroad staff is now covered under the general education fund of the university, and the saved money is now being put toward

One of the short-term summer programs - the southern Italy capstone course - was recently ranked as the No. 1 short-term study abroad in the United States by Abroad101, the world’s largest study abroad review website. However, during the faculty senate meeting, faculty brought up a number of concerns regarding compensation for short-term summer

in the number of faculty-led summer programs in the college, which previously had the largest number in the university. He said it went from six programs to one. “… I don’t know if it’s a morale issue? I’m sure a lot of it has to do with compensation,” Bruess said. “I couldn’t believe that nobody here dropped their jaws or popped their eyes when they heard that we pay our own expenses abroad.” Bruess said not only did he have to pay for his own airfare, but he also had to pay for internal travel out of his BRANDON BAKER/Northern Iowan

This fall, 28 current and former University of Northern Iowa faculty, staff and coaches collaborated to create a book detailing the history of UNI Athletics. The book, titled “Tutors to Panthers: A Brief History of UNI Athletics,” chronicles all 120 years of Panther sports in 16 chapters, each one written by a different author. All proceeds from the book will help fund scholarships for UNI student athletes. Jim Kelly, emeritus professor of teaching and project coordinator for the book, said he wanted to help the university out in any way < See BOOK, page 3

Female body image as portrayed in the media and for women of color was the topic of discussion at a “Love Your Body Day” event co-hosted by University of Northern Iowa Proud and Feminist Action League on Nov. 15. “This year we decided to focus on the intersection of race with body image because … it’s not just for white, middle-class women,” said Jessica Garraway, facilitator of the Feminist Action League and organizer of the event. “We need to keep all women and their different experiences in < See BODY IMAGE, page 2

account.” The event featured posters about female body image and its relation to the media, a lecture by UNI associate professor of cultural and ethnic studies Scharron Clayton and a discussion following the lecture. The posters explained how photos of women are altered before they are printed in magazines and how this contributes to the development of eating disorders in women. “Many of the women we see in magazines are airbrushed — they aren’t even real women,” said Garraway, a junior political science major. Alicia Jefferson, a junior African-American studies major, remembered her past and how she tried to conform to the ideal body image of an

People were saying, ‘You got a white girl figure,’” Jefferson said. Clayton lectured on a variety of topics related to the body image of AfricanAmerican women, including research on African-American history, black feminism and black literature. She said the strength of one’s ethnic identity affects how much influence the media has on the African American female body image. “When we say ‘body image’ … to a black woman who has a strong sense of who she is, she sees in her mind her people, herself, her curves — she sees that instead of what

is being presented to her,” Clayton said. During the discussion, though, many agreed that while women of color may have certain standards of beauty within their own culture, the white, European/ American body image is seen as the world standard. They said many women from different ethnic backgrounds pursue plastic surgery, altering their bodies to conform to this “white standard.” Leslie Fink, a sophomore liberal arts major, said she enjoyed the presentation. “I really liked how much the speaker knew about the topics and how she gave her own personal experiences in regard to her own body image as an African-American woman,” Fink said. “I also personally liked that poetry was incorporated to give her message.”

STUDY ABROAD

continued from page 1

According to Klafter, this prioritized short-term summer programs. One of the short-term summer programs — the southern Italy capstone course — was recently ranked as the No. 1 short-term study abroad in the United States by Abroad101, the world’s largest study abroad review website. However, during the faculty senate meeting, faculty brought up a number of concerns regarding compensation for short-term summer programs and how academic the programs are.

Faculty compensation for abroad programs

At the faculty senate meeting, Gregory Bruess, a senator representing the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, revealed a drastic decrease in the number of faculty-led summer programs in the college, which previously had the largest number in the university. He said it went from six programs to one. “… I don’t know if it’s a morale issue? I’m sure a lot of it has to do with compensation,” Bruess said. “I couldn’t believe that nobody here dropped their jaws or popped their eyes when they

he could. “We wanted to do what a group of older faculty, staff, coaches and Panther friends could do to help raise funds for scholarships, and in turn, decrease the need for state funds for athletics,” Kelly said. Colin McDonough, UNI assistant athletics director, said he was very appreciative of Kelly’s idea. “Jim Kelly took the initiative and realized this was a chance to give back and help raise those kinds of dollars,” McDonough said. Kelly said the project was made possible by the writers who donated their time. “The writing, layout and cover illustration were all gratis, which was very helpful,” Kelly said. Nancy Justis, former UNI sports information director, praised the contributors of the book. “It was an effort of love by those who contributed to the production of the book — proud Panther followers in their own right — all of whom wanted to spread the ‘stories’ of the people who have made UNI athletics what it is today,” Justis said. Not only does the book highlight the main achievements of UNI athletics, but it also touches on lesser-

heard that we pay our own expenses abroad.” Bruess said not only did he have to pay for his own airfare, but he also had to pay for internal travel out of his own pocket. According to Bruess, the issue of compensation is affecting the quality of these programs. He said the Study Abroad Center has expanded the faculty-led study abroad programs to include those who have no expertise in the culture or language and who have not been in the countries themselves. Kim MacLin, a professor of psychology and faculty senator for the CSBS, said “the policy to have faculty pay their own expenses may inadvertently encourage the vacation mentality.” MacLin said that although she has never led a study abroad program, she would expect to pay for her own food and a great many things, but the lodging and travel expenses should be covered by the university. MacLin also said that while it would be a wonderful thing to be able to go to Europe or China to teach a class, in the end, it would still be part of her employment at UNI. The decision about faculty being responsible for travel and hotel costs, according to Klafter, was the only viable option out of many. He also

known successes. “Though we obviously could not mention every person and every contributor, we tried to give an overview of the successes and failures,” Justis said. “What we wanted to share were the behind-the-scenes stories of the people and what it has meant, and means, to be a Panther.” McDonough echoed Justis, stating that their goal was for the readers of the book to learn more about the history of UNI athletics, the athletes and the teams “behind these stories.” Kelly reiterated the need for an overlaying history of UNI athletics, which “has never been done before in a story format.” The cost of the book is $34.95. Only 2,500 copies were printed.

NEWS said that where faculty members did not earn enough (after expenses) to reach the level of compensation for a minimum adjunct course, the center would use margins generated by some programs to provide the difference to faculty. “It’s not a perfect solution. I wish it was otherwise,” Klafter said. “I encourage United Faculty to propose that change. I do not believe there would be any resistance on the part of the university to such a proposal.”

Creation of a faculty oversight committee

At the senate meeting, Bruess also said that he would love to see a faculty oversight committee of study abroad because the Study Abroad Center “is not academic in the sense” that its members are not trained or educated to make a decision about appropriate study abroad courses. Bruess mentioned that Klafter, in his interview for his position as associate provost, said he wanted to bring a faculty advisory or oversight board to the office. Concerning an oversight board or committee, MacLin explained that there would not be a certain number of faculty who had every level of expertise about various programs, but rather a

PAGE 3

“group of faculty who have a faculty mentality to bring to the discussion.” “… It’s a mentality that I find strikingly lacking in your (Klafter’s) presentation (to faculty senate), if nothing else due to some of your terms that you use, referring to places as having strong markets, these yield events,” MacLin said during the faculty senate meeting. “Those are terms that make me fundamentally uncomfortable when we’re talking about students, bringing them here for an educational learning experience and providing our students diversity and richness in community,” MacLin continued. MacLin said that while she understands much of this stems from the culture and language of the Office of International Programs, a faculty board would “provide a different viewpoint of referring to students as ‘strong markets’ and ‘yield events.’” Klafter said that although he is currently a faculty member, and has been all his career, the “reality is if this university really wants to up its game, which I think it desperately needs to do, you have to think of it as a business.” Klafter also said that in the past year, the Study Abroad Center has changed

how courses are approved in that they now go through the same process as domestic courses. This means the corresponding deans and department heads approve them. According to Klafter, the only decision the study abroad staff makes in terms of programs is whether they are financially viable and whether they would impose safety risks. He said this addresses many of the problems raised by MacLin and Bruess. Klafter also said there is evidence that this method works, as UNI is ranked as having the fourth best study abroad program in the nation by Abroad101. Hoever, Bruess said this ranking was determined through self-reporting, which is not objective. According to Klafter, the creation of a faculty advisory board is now in process, but that board will not be reviewing individual study abroad courses. “The academic departments are the appropriate place for the approval of courses to take place,” Klafter said. “It’s an academic department that has the expertise to determine the appropriateness of course leaders, syllabi and to provide feedback, and that’s where those decisions should be made.”

UNI students would benefit from Dead Week Dead Week is almost here. For students at schools such as Iowa State University, this means a time where no major assignments, projects or papers are due (unless they are semester-long projects), according to the Iowa State University Catalog. The Catalog also says that registered student organizations may not hold meetings or events during Dead Week. Sounds great, right? But at the University of Northern Iowa, Dead Week does not exist. Professors are free to hand out papers and projects left and right, making the week before finals a stressful time for students. Students must carefully manage their time in order to complete all assignments and still have time to study for finals. As many finals are worth a large portion of a student’s grade and are also cumulative, they require more study time than a cram session the night before the test. Having a whole week devoted to studying for finals would be beneficial for many students. If UNI did have Dead Week, there are undoubtedly students who would not take advantage of the time given to them. They would blow it off and spend the week partying with friends. But to a large portion of the student body, Dead Week would be a tremendous relief. However, the ISU Catalog does mention one other guideline for Dead Week: “Mandatory final examinations in any course may not be given during Dead Week except for laboratory courses and for those classes meeting once a week only and for which there is no contact during the normal final exam week.” So for students who have ever taken a final exam early, and have felt a little pressure lift off their shoulders because of it, would that added study time compensate for that one extra test during finals week? For the majority of students, it probably would. If no professors schedule exams early, then students still have the pressure of taking all their exams in one week on top of completing all assignments that are due the week prior. And even if professors would have normally scheduled an exam early, students would have to work on assignments while simultaneously studying for a final or two. Dead Week would provide UNI students with more time to study for final exams. It would also give them fewer things to stress over. Though some students could fail to make wise use of the extra time, the students of UNI are all here to gain an education, and they should be given the chance to do the best they can.

UNI I am... Going to get in trouble for this title NATE KONRARDY konrardy @uni.edu

After the closing of Print Services last semester, the university struck a deal with Copyworks that gives student organizations a discount on printing certain materials. A student organization may receive the discount only after their materials have been approved by University Relations because, as with anything, there are rules. And, as is often the case with rules, University Relations has some that are ridiculous. Picture this: you are part of a student organization whose sole purpose is to raise money for children battling cancer and other diseases. With your status as a student group, you are eligible to receive the

University of Northern Iowa printing discount for your promotional material. You need this promotional material in order to attract new members to your organization and more monetary donations because 100 percent of the money you raise is given to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. You submit your designs to University Relations and are surprised to find out that nothing you’ve created is eligible for the discount because of the colors of your organization. The colors that are touching happen to be the school colors of a different local/state/ rival school; therefore, you must change the colors of your organization that raises money for children with cancer OR find a way to pay the difference without the help of UNI. This scenario is a reality for UNI Dance Marathon, which raised more than $56,000 for The University

of Iowa Children’s Hospital last year. UNI Dance Marathon’s colors are black and orange, and they are refused University Relations’ support because Wartburg’s colors are black and orange. No organization that has black touching orange, black touching gold (Iowa), or cardinal (red) touching gold (Iowa State University) will receive support from University Relations. From a public relations standpoint, it is very difficult to create noticeable material that won’t get gobbled up by the white noise of the creativity deficient. On a campus already over-saturated in purple and gold promotional material, any organization with the hopes of establishing a name for itself would be digging its own grave if it used the exact same colors as everyone else. < See PRINTING, page 5

GUEST COLUMN

Vegans are hungry for better meal options at UNI dining centers “So you only eat…salad?” That’s a common question people ask vegans like me when they are less familiar with us non-omnivore types. While it’s not true that vegans (and vegetarians, for that matter) eat only salad, in my experience here at the University of Northern Iowa so far this year, as much as I can gather, that proposition is what seems to be expressed by UNI’s dining services. I’m sorry to inform you, UNI, but I don’t just eat salad. The focus is on salad because the only consistent non-beverage vegan food item that could be thought of as something of a main course here on campus is the salad – more specifically, the salad bar. While any omnivore or vegetarian omnivore can thrive here on campus, vegans (herbivores) like me are consistently forced to delicately pick through disparate side dishes and condiments to assemble a ghost of a meal. Fruit and salad are about the only two non-beverage things you can count on, and fruit isn’t an entrée. In fact it’s rare to see a vegan-specific entrée. While vegan side dishes occasionally pop up during the week and vegan condiments are satis-

To a certain extent, University Relations has created problems for themselves. They continue to promote on campus, using more money than any individual student organization, dwarfing all other purple and gold promotional materials created by student organizations while taking steps to prevent any diversity in advertising. Between taboo color schemes, restrictions on innovative advertising methods and the virtual monopolization of purple and gold by University Relations, there is very little room to create something with the ability to be heard through such an immense amount of white noise. If you are familiar with any of the posters produced by this university, I’m sure you’ll agree that to describe them as thought-provoking would be fanciful. But the fact that recruitment materials are strategically plastered all over campus makes University Relations look like a jealous and overly self-conscious girlfriend. The fact that University Relations continues to cover this campus in propaganda even after we’ve enrolled is the epitome of insecurity. The way I see it, if a student does not want to be at UNI, colors touching on a poster is not going to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. And

factory, any vegan entrée you might find is generally some horrid, dry mess that looks like it was cobbled together just because they had to, not giving any attention to flavor or nutritional value. Sure, they might be accommodating with a labeling system where they indicate vegan and vegetarian dishes with different colored texts (and also stickers). But it doesn’t really mean anything unless you put something substantial on the menus in the first place! A couple weeks ago there were posters and trifolds up about “Myths about Vegetarians and Vegans,” and the reply to the question about so what if they want to go to a different school? Helping a student find a comfortable atmosphere is something we should encourage. Maybe the atmosphere that needs to be created is one in which viewing particular color schemes doesn’t send someone into a depressing spiral of regret. If University Relations believes that is the case, the atmosphere provided and encouraged at UNI needs to be reevaluated. That atmosphere exists because there is no truth in advertising. Presenting materials depicting things that literally never happen is a great way to attract people who will be extremely discontent once they get here. Consumers hate being lied to so much that false advertising has been made illegal. So, let’s lose the façade and begin supporting the organizations our current students are passionate about. Encouraging students of UNI to pursue goals they are passionate about sounds like a great way to bring inspired, young minds to this campus. An inviting and enabling atmosphere will nearly recruit for itself. Sounds like a public relations dream… a dream that can only become a reality if egos are put aside.

THINKSTOCK

our health was listed that we need a “balanced diet” like everyone else. Well, I wish I could eat a balanced diet here; I really do. I’ve had to start spending my very limited money for supplements because here I can’t eat my nutrient requirements like I should be able to. I’ve run out of my few dining dollars too offsetting what I should be getting in the dining centers. At this point some of you are probably rolling your eyes and thinking to yourself, “Well it’s his choice to be vegan.” For me, yes, that is a choice. I chose a healthy, plant-based diet that keeps my cholesterol down as well

as my blood pressure, because I have a family history of hypertension. The thing is, it’s not always somebody’s choice to be vegan. Many students with allergies and other medical conditions are required to be vegan to maintain themselves. Yet whether somebody is choosing a diet out of medical necessity or not should not be the only determining factor in whether to support them. If you decide to go work out at the Wellness and Recreation Center and keep physically active, a healthy choice that no one would question, and you pull a muscle or injure yourself, UNI has a Student Health Center, physical therapists and plenty of other people to help you get back fit and happy. Why should there be? It was your choice to work out. That logic, however sound, is not followed, and neither should it be. It’s uncaring and inhumane. So why can’t UNI do more for its vegans if it does so much to support other healthy lifestyle choices? Dining is one of the most fundamental social activities on campus, and luckily for me, I can participate in frequent formal and informal house dinners. I shudder to

think what other vegans not in my situation do. If a vegan can’t dine here, it is going to hurt them socially, and that could hurt them academically. Moreover, it’s not like anybody wants to pay the equivalent of a $10 meal for just a swig of juice and a bite of lettuce. I’m sorry, UNI, but honestly, you’re like a politician that promises the world and delivers squat. Your pittance of the occasional vegan gruel and the separate “vegan” table/area of the dining centers (the ones that only contain a few beans, crackers, and hummus most generally) have not satisfied me. If I weren’t on a meal plan, I wouldn’t be able to eat while in college – the financial support wouldn’t be there. And it seems as far as meal plans are concerned, I’m not going to be eating much anyway. I have my lifestyle and I am this way because I want to be healthier. You don’t punish other types of healthy choices, so why should you punish me and others like me? I just want to eat. I’m hungry. And I’m not a rabbit. I can’t exist on salad alone.

Students, professionals battle at Ad Wars II BRIAN FREESE Staff Writer

Teams of local professionals and University of Northern Iowa students battled at Voodoo Lounge in Cedar Falls on Thursday, Nov. 15 to determine who knew the most advertising trivia in Ad Wars II, an event sponsored by the Cedar Valley’s chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF). The event doors opened at 6 p.m., with the trivia competition starting around 7 p.m. A selection of snack foods was provided, including crackers, vegetables and spinach dip. Drink tickets were provided for the teams as well. “If there’s one thing that advertising professionals love to do, it’s sit around and watch ads with each other,” said Matthew Wilson, a marketing instructor at UNI and faculty adviser to the UNI student chapter of the AAF. “People like to admire each others’ crafts or make fun of each others’ crafts as the case may be.” Spencer Ross, a marketing and advertising major

at UNI and president of the UNI chapter of the AAF, added, “As part of the AAF at UNI, our mission statement is to inspire a passion for advertising. Something like this shows (that) the world of advertising is really fun. It’s a social event where you can relax and show that you’re in advertising, but you can have fun, too.” Besides the advertising competition, participants in the event had a chance to show off their creative side. “We are also giving out prizes for the best costumes and free admission to AAF programs,” said Jen Williams, the program co-chair for the AAF Cedar Valley, a local chapter of the national AAF, and senior copywriter and marketing strategist at ME&V Advertising. Team costumes had many different themes, which included Pac-Man and the ghosts, a recreation of Mount Rushmore and Bob Barker and a row of contestants from “The Price is Right.” Other teams wore fake mustaches or newspaper hats. Trivia was the main focus

of the event, and as Williams explained, “We have a really cool traveling trophy. The team that wins gets the trophy and ... gets free tickets to our Addy awards. The Addy’s are kind of the biggest thing the AAF does all year long.” The night’s questions varied widely in difficulty, according to Williams. “We have six categories. Some of them are really hard. We start off with automotive advertising; it’s very historical and goes way back. There’s one category on war propaganda, which is interesting. Another is called ‘Bad Decisions,’ and the last one is a logo quiz, where we’ve taken names off of logos,” said Williams. Question topics included Apple, Willie Mays, the Super Bowl, Rosie the Riveter, “Mad Men,” Adidas, Gateway, Paramount and Habitat for Humanity. The winner of the trivia contest was “Do We Need One,” with “Those Guys” coming in last place. The costume contest winners were the team dressed as contestants on “The Price is Right.”

QUIZ RESULTS

Mostly A’s Darling, you’re fabulous. Some call you high-maintenance like its a bad thing, but rather than viewing beauty as a chore, you view your self-pampering as a delicious indulgence. David’s product suggestions for glamorous high maintenance types like you: Leave-in conditioner, such as Herbal Essences None of Your Frizzness Smoothing Leavein Crème ($4, drugstores), which will supplement your regular shampoo/conditioner routine and ensure shiny, soft and delicately fragranced hair; a purifying facial masque, such as Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque (a personal favorite of the author, $5, Sally’s Beauty Supply), which takes 15 minutes to absorb excess oil and shrink pores; a good moisturizer, as the drying masque can also be used as an acne spot treatment; and a glow-giver, such as Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Leg Makeup ($10, drugstores), which is suitable for arms, legs and body and imparts a natural-looking sunny glow that washes off with your next shower. Mostly B’s Hey there, happy medium! You don’t expect Hollywood glamour every day, but neither do you reach for the sweats every morning. Puttogether, understated beauty is your go-to, and you tend to like all aspects of your life to strike a balance. David’s product suggestions for well-adjusted midmaintenance types like you: A contouring kit, such as E.L.F. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Cream ($3, Target), which will allow you to define cheekbones and flush skin with a healthy pink glow; a

hair styling mousse such as Kiss My Face Hold Up Styling Mousse ($9, organic beauty section), which will add volume and shape to short and long hairstyles and scent your hair like fresh, sweet limes – organically; and a scented lotion such as Bath and Body Works C.O. Bigelow Barber Ultra Light Body Lotion Elixir White ($17, Bath and Body Works), which keeps skin moisturized and soft and imparts an androgynous citrusy scent that keeps you smelling good all day long. Mostly C’s ‘Sup, bro? You’re lowmaintenance. You don’t like to spend too much time getting ready, and you don’t really see the point in doing so. This doesn’t mean that you’re a slob – not at all! You’re just more chill than your mid- or high-maintenance counterparts. You’d do well to look for products that serve multiple purposes, as they save you steps, time and money. David’s product suggestions for laid-back, lowmaintenance types like you: Hair and body wash, such as Suave Professionals 3 in 1 Hair and Body Wash ($34, drugstores), which lets you lather up once all over and be done with it; tinted moisturizer, such as E.L.F. Tinted Moisturizer Spf 20 ($3, Target), which moisturizes, protects your face from harmful UV rays and evens out your skin tone all in one go; and dry shampoo, such as Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo ($4-5, drugstores), which will zap grease and revitalize your ‘do on the days you don’t have time to shower.

UNI goes 0-3 in Bahamas

ERIC CLAUSEN/Northern Iowan

UNI sophomore forward Seth Tuttle (10) was held to just six points in three games during the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament in the Bahamas last week. The Panthers went 0-3 in the tournament, losing by an average of 8.6 points per game.

JAKE BEMIS

Sports Writer

It may have been the toughest threeday stretch in University of Northern Iowa men’s basketball history. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, UNI traveled overseas to take part in arguably the nation’s toughest holiday tournament – the Battle 4 Atlantis. It may not have been the outcome the Panthers were looking for, but UNI knows an 0-3 trip doesn’t tell the whole story. The Panthers lost all three games – two to ranked opponents – by an average of just 8.6 points per game, and by an average of five points against the

two ranked teams. “We had a great weekend minus winning a game,” said UNI head coach Ben Jacobson. “There isn’t anything we would change about the trip. It is what we thought it was going to be – a bigtime event.” UNI opened tournament play Thanksgiving night against No. 2-ranked University of Louisville. Louisville all but had the game wrapped up with just under 12 minutes left in regulation, as they held an 18-point lead. However, an 11-2 run by the Panthers cut the score to 42-33. < See BASKETBALL, page 12

Panthers fall to Wichita State in MVC Tournament MAT MEYER

Sports Writer

ERIN KEISER/Northern Iowan

UNI senior Megan Lehman (8) had eight kills during the Panthers’ 3-1 loss to Wichita State in the MVC Tournament.

The University of Northern Iowa volleyball team competed in the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament semifinals against the Wichita State University Shockers last Saturday and suffered a 3-1 loss. Despite the loss, UNI still earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. Outside hitter Macy Ubben continued her strong season with 18 kills and Krista DeGeest added 16 of her own. Setter Molly Turk finished with 55 assists and was backed up on the defensive end by Candice Burke’s 21 digs.

Throughout the course of the season, the Panthers have typically played well in the first set, but in the match against Wichita State, the Shockers (22-9) took an early advantage. UNI (249) kept it close but eventually found themselves down 18-13 with the Shockers gaining all of the momentum. The Panthers put together a late-game run, but it wasn’t enough as Wichita State won the first set 25-19. Despite the momentum running in favor of the Shockers, the Panthers jumped out to a 5-0 lead to start the second set. UNI extended their lead to 12-4. < See VOLLEYBALL, page 13

The University of Northern Iowa wrestling team opened up their dual meet season against University of Wisconsin last Saturday, losing 24-13. It was also the first dual meet for many of the UNI wrestlers. Five of the nine wrestlers who competed in the meet were redshirt freshmen. However, UNI head coach Doug Schwab did not use youth as an excuse. “The other team doesn’t care how many freshman you have. We have our expectations, and we will find ways to meet those,” Schwab told the media following the meet. UNI competed well against Wisconsin, winning four matches and losing two heartbreakers. At 149 pounds, Wisconsin’s Cole Schmitt beat Tanner Hiatt in a decision 2-1. At 184 pounds, Austin Gelbach of UNI lost to Dylan Ickzowski 3-2. UNI started the meet in a hole when they did not have a wrestler to compete at 125 pounds, giving Wisconsin six free points. At 133 pounds, UNI’s returning NCAA qualifier Levi Wolfensperger won 6-4 with a takedown of Tom Kelliher in overtime. UNI’s David Bonin, currently ranked 2nd in the MidAmerican Conference at 157 pounds, continued his strong season, winning in a major decision against Kalvin York. Jarrett Jensen, one of the Panthers’ redshirt freshmen, competed at 165 pounds and won in a decision over Frank Cousins 8-1. Another freshman, Cody Caldwell, won his match at 174 pounds in a decision against Scott Liegal 6-2. Caldwell, a graduate of Waverly High School, is currently ranked 18th by Intermat and Amateur Wrestling News. After the meet, Coach Schwab remained confident that UNI can compete at a high level. “This obviously isn’t the way we wanted to start, but we can build from here and get ready for the next one,” said Schwab. “We have a big tournament to get ready for next weekend. We will focus on that.” The Panthers will look to get back on track in Las Vegas at the Cliff Keen Invite from Nov. 30 to Dec. 1.

continued from page 11

Over the next five minutes of play, UNI kept Louisville from scoring a single point, and with just over two minutes left to go, Jake Koch hit two free throws to cut Louisville’s lead to one point. With 42 seconds left, Koch hit two more free throws to put the score at 48-46 in favor of the Cardinals. With time running down on the shot clock, Louisville’s Peyton Siva drove the lane and missed a short layup. The ball was tipped into the air before the Panthers came down with the ball. Almost immediately, Siva got his arms in the play, getting the jump ball call and the possession arrow in Louisville’s favor. Russ Smith hit a layup and drew the foul to ice the game with barely five seconds left.

(It’s) an opportunity for us to get better having played those games. The only thing I would have be different would be that we won Thursday (against Louisville). Ben Jacobson

UNI head basketball coach

“The guys played very hard … but we had too many stretches where we didn’t rebound the ball well enough,” said Jacobson. “Our ball handling and passing wasn’t sharp enough in key times.” Just 13 hours after leaving the arena, the Panthers were back to face the Stanford University Cardinal, who lost to the University of Missouri in the tournament’s opening game. The Panthers fought hard to tie the game up by halftime, but their 27 percent shooting from the 3-point line compared to Stanford’s

NORTHERN-IOWAN.ORG | FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2012

42 percent doomed UNI to a 66-50 loss to the Cardinal. “We didn’t talk about that at all,” Jacobson said about the short turnaround from Thursday to Friday. “What we did talk about was that we had another opportunity to play against a good team.” In their final game of the tournament, UNI faced the No. 19-ranked University of Memphis Tigers. The Panthers took a commanding 14-point lead in the first half, but a Memphis 10-0 run sparked by Chris Crawford cut the score to 26-22 heading into halftime.

“There isn’t anything we would change about the trip. It is what we thought it was going to be – a big time event.” Ben Jacobson

UNI head basketball coach

The game stayed tight throughout the second half, but with over four minutes left in regulation, Memphis took a 42-41 lead they never gave up. The Tigers iced the game with a 3-point play from Joe Jackson to give Memphis a seven-point lead with just 36 seconds left to play. The Panthers lost 52-47, shooting 25 percent from the 3-point line and 31 percent from the field. “(It’s) an opportunity for us to get better now having played those games. The only thing I would have be different would be that we won Thursday (against Louisville),” said Jacobson. “The guys care about what they’re doing. They have a lot of pride in our program and how they want things to go. I think we have a great opportunity to get better this week, and I think we will,” Jacobson added. The Panthers return to action Saturday when they host the University of WisconsinMilwaukee at 7 p.m. in the McLeod Center.

OPINION

Putting a positive spin on 0-3 BRAD EILERS

Sports Editor

The University of Northern Iowa men’s basketball team just completed their first true test of the season last week during their trip to the Bahamas for the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament. Despite going 0-3, I feel the Panthers can learn and grow from this experience. Sure, I would much rather have this article be about how the Panthers won one, two or even three games over Thanksgiving break, but that isn’t the case. However, there are still some positives to look forward to. The Panthers will not face a better team than the University of Louisville the rest of the season. Sure, Creighton University, the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, St. Mary’s College and Wichita State University will all be tough, but Louisville is a top-five team and a legitimate national title contender for a reason. Louisville should have caused UNI problems, and they did. However, the Panthers lost by five points on a neutral court, and while UNI could have easily lost that game by 20 points, they could have just as easily won that game if not for a 10-minute scoring drought to start the second half. It’s encouraging when you can say that after a game against the No. 2-ranked team in the country. Going into the game, I’m guessing most UNI fans would have been satisfied had you told them UNI would only lose by five points and would have a chance to win the game in the final minutes of regulation.

Shooting troubles plagued the Panthers throughout the three days of the tournament, and I can almost guarantee UNI will not continue to shoot that badly throughout the season. The Panthers shot 34 percent (49-for-144) from the floor, including just 27 percent (19-for-68) from 3-point range. Last season UNI shot 43 percent from the floor and nearly 39 percent from 3-point range. Rebounding was another problem for the Panthers over the weekend. UNI was outrebounded 115-81 and was -19 in offensive rebounding. Despite the poor shooting and rebounding, UNI lost by an average of 8.6 points to No. 2 Louisville, Stanford University and No. 19-ranked University of Memphis. In their two games against ranked opponents, the Panthers lost by just five points. Throughout the tournament, UNI held their opponents to just 56 points per game, which is a great sign since Ben Jacobson and the Panthers pride themselves on their defense. UNI will be just fine once they hit their stride offensively and get Seth Tuttle going inside the paint. I have faith that the defense will continue to play well and the Panthers will continue to progress with their shooting, rebounding and offensive presence in the paint. Despite sitting at 3-3 overall, the future still looks bright for this year’s men’s basketball team. I have no doubts that they will learn from last week’s experience and use it as motivation for the rest of the season.

The Shockers came back, but late in the set, the Panthers held a 21-20 lead. A kill by Ubben allowed them to hold Wichita State off and get the win 25-22, tying the match at 1-1. After the third set was knotted up at 10-10, the Shockers were able to take it without too much pressure from the Panthers. The final score of the third set was 25-19, and Wichita State headed into the break up 2-1. After intermission it was crunch time for UNI, and it showed as the fourth set went back-and-forth.

UNI hitters’ great performance around the net gave the Panthers a 10-8 lead early in the set. However, a late 6-2 run by the Shockers was enough to put WSU up for good as the Panthers got no closer than three points for the rest of the set. Wichita State took the final set 25-20 and the match 3-1. Despite their early exit from the MVC tournament, the Panthers were still able to get their seventh straight NCAA Tournament bid and their 18th in school history.
