Caroling choir brings joy to UNI


Wait line grows at counseling center RACHEL BALDUS

Staff Writer

quickly, there was a free raffle for the spectators.

Students hoping to get help from the University of Northern Iowa Counseling Center may have experienced wait lines in the last few weeks. The number of students requesting counseling typically increases around week eight of the semester, and the higher numbers are fairly consistent until finals, said David Towle, Counseling Center director. He said in some instances, students may be on a call list in case another student cancels or reschedules their appointment. “When people contact the Counseling Center for counseling, our goal is to get people in for their initial appointment within one week of calling,” Towle said. According to Towle, 82 percent of students who contacted the center were seen within a week, and 21 percent were seen on the same day they contacted the center. Elizabeth Moreno, junior communications major, was placed on the wait line and said she had to wait a few weeks to a month after her initial assessment meeting. “I was extremely nervous about attending counseling, but the staff made it very easy and not at all intimidating or uncomfortable,” Moreno said. Towle said wait lines occur due to staff shortages from resignations and graduate student training.

Iowa chairiots roll into McLeod RACHEL BALDUS opportunity Staff Writer

The University of Northern Iowa women’s basketball game against St. Louis was not the only thing that occupied the McLeod Center Saturday night. During half-time, the Iowa Chairiots, a wheelchair basketball team performed a show, and then after the UNI game, they played a game of their own . The Iowa Chairiots and around 20 different UNI athletes played a four quarter game of five-on-five, rotating players roughly every five minutes. This gave UNI athletes the

to experience playing basketball in wheelchairs. “What we are working to establish is a clear and well-known awareness for inclusive adaptive sports in the state of Iowa,” said Jayden Barrett, Iowa Chairiot player. “We want everyone to know about adaptive sports, and through this also see the true capabilities of people with disabilities.” The basketball game was a fundraiser event for SportAbility of Iowa, which aimed to raise money for the Iowa Chairiots and the UNI Adapted Sports Camp, said Jack Eherenman, who

UNI looks at reducing student hours HANNAH GIBBS


Northern Iowan Manager


Staff Writer

Student jobs at the University of Northern Iowa are not being cut due to the Affordable Care Act, but UNI is looking into limiting the number of hours students can work, said financial aid director Joyce Morrow. “While looking at the ACA, we questioned how many hours students are working at UNI,”


continued from page 1

According to Towle, the fall semester began with a staff member resigning, which left them with seven staff members. This left each counselor with five or six students to see every day. He added that even with staff shortages, staff is not required to work additional hours. In this instance, the center had part-time counselors temporarily take the place of the staff member who resigned. “So by the time you add up the full-time permanent staff, the graduate students who are receiving training and the part time temporary people, we may have as many as 10 or 12 individuals who are providing

Morrow said. “We found that UNI students are working on campus an average of 9.3 hours. Studies show that students should work 10-15 hours; more than 20 hours can hurt the students academically.” Current policies at Iowa State University and the University of Iowa prohibit students from working over 20 hours a week for academic reasons. However, UNI is only discuss-

ing the issue at the moment. The policy would need to be passed by the UNI board before going into effect. If the change does happen, Morrow said they hope to work with students. “We hope to be flexible, to allow students to work more than 20 hours certain times of the year and at the other times have them work 10-15 hours,” Morrow said.

counseling,” said Towle. He said the Counseling Center does not limit the number of students who may make appointments. He discussed what he thinks is a growing need for counseling in general. “If you look at some of the statistics that suggest 25 percent of college students have a diagnosable mental health disorder in a given year - which can include depression, anxiety, ADHD, eating disorders, various things like that - (it) suggests that there could be 3,000 students on campus who could benefit from some kind of counseling,” Towle said. About 750-800 students currently use the Counseling Center during the academic

school year, according to Towle. He said that makes up over 6 percent of the student body. However, this number has generally risen each year, according to the Counseling Center’s annual reports. From 2010-2011, there were 789 clients, and that number rose to 809 the following year. “It’s been going up for a variety of reasons,” Towle said. “One of them is that I think there’s gradually become greater acceptance of getting help for personal issues. Some of the stigma and other barriers have, I think, been reduced in some way.” Additionally, the center is a part of, a website that allows students to take an anonymous online screening selfevaluation.

Unique exhibits on display in Union Students and faculty show off creativity JOSH CHIAVETTA

Staff Writer

Picture in your mind a series of ornately decorated ballrooms with each interior boxed in by tables and alluring display boards. The ballroom is filled with rows of empty seats awaiting a large audience. The room on the outskirt houses a woman dancing and shouting out words of empowerment. The Creative UNIversity Conference and Celebration on Tuesday showcased the creative works of University of Northern Iowa students and faculty in exhibits displayed in Ballroom A and Ballroom B of Maucker Union. Gary Gute, director of the Creative Life Research Center and event director, kicked off the event with a welcoming speech. He said he hopes the event returns in future fall terms. “I have several, probably too many, creative passions. A central one right now is

developing the CLRC into a vibrant, robust center that can do great things for our students, the community and the state of Iowa,” Gute said. Steven Tepper, associate director of the Curb Center for Art, Enterprise and Public Policy at Vanderbilt University, was the keynote speaker for the event. Gute said Tepper’s address was well attended by a great cross section of students, faculty, staff and administration. One exhibit at the event was for Art for El Salvador, a student organization that strives to teach art in its numerous forms as a means to support and improve education in the impoverished

communities in El Salvador. “I am passionate about Art for El Salvador because I believe in the power of art to make a positive difference in the world,” said Maria Howard, president of Art for El Salvador. “I strongly believe that every single child is deserving of a high quality of education.” In the summer of 2009, Niah Howard, a current

UNI student, and her sister Maria visited El Salvador on a mission trip with the First Presbyterian Church of Dallas Center. The following year they and their younger sister Sarah began to sell their own artwork and pieces donated by friends and community members. At the end of that year, the sisters were in a car accident and Sarah passed away.

In 2011, Niah came up with the idea of building a school in El Salvador in Sarah’s name; that has since become the prime objective of Art for El Salvador. “Because this school will be named in memory of my little sister, Sarah, this project is a deeply meaningful opportunity to continue the legacy of her amazing life,” Maria said.


South Africa mourns death of Nelson Mandela ROBYN DIXON

MCT Campus

Dressed in black against a twilight-blue background, a somber South African President Jacob Zuma appeared on television to give his countrymen the news they had long dreaded. "My fellow South Africans," he intoned. "Our beloved Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, the founding president of our democratic nation, has departed." With that announcement, delivered about 11:35 p.m. Thursday, South Africa learned that it had lost its greatest figure: its first black president, the leader of the movement to end the apartheid system of racial discrimination and a man known to most as simply Madiba. "Our nation has lost its greatest son," Zuma said. "Our people have lost a father." Mandela, 95, never recovered after being admitted to a hospital in June with the latest of several severe bouts of pneumonia. Although doctors managed to stabilize his condition, he remained in critical health until the end. He was released from the hospital in September and was treated at his home in the Johannesburg suburb of Houghton. Zuma said he died there peacefully at 8:50 p.m. Thursday.

Almost immediately, people began to converge around the house to pay their respects, to be a part of history or simply because they didn't know what else to do. They were white and black, many still in their pajamas, some flying South African flags from their cars. "Ever ybody's heart is with the old man," said Prince Maphumulo, 43, who drove more than 60 miles to the home when he heard the news. Maphumulo, a soldier in the South African army, was wearing a jacket from Mandela's African National Congress. "We are actually not surprised in South Africa by now because he has been sick for a very, very long time," he said. "We've been expecting this any time." But he added: "His legacy is incomparable anywhere in the world. He's a world icon. He's the liberator of South Africa. He managed to do miracles. That man changed his country without spilling any blood. ...He used his power the right way." Melissa Hoffman, who also

Nelson Mandela

drove to the house, said she had been on the phone Thursday night with a South African friend who had moved to Australia. The conversation was interrupted when the friend received a text message from another South African, who had moved to Canada. She read the text to Hoffman: Nelson Mandela had died. "It's so huge, it's just so big," Hoffman said of the news. "In a way, it feels surreal, but in another way, it's been coming for such a long time." In recent days, Mandela's family appeared to prepare the nation for its hero's death. His daughter, Makaziwe Mandela, had said Tuesday that Mandela was on his deathbed.

"Tata is still with us, strong, cour ageous," she told stateowned television, using the Xhosa word for father. "Even for a lack of a better word, on his 'deathbed' he is teaching us lessons: lessons in patience, in love, lessons of tolerance. Every moment I get with him I'm amazed. There are times where I have to pinch myself that I come from this man who is a fighter even though you can see he is struggling, but fighting spirit is still there with him." As Mandela's health worsened Thursday, family members, including two of his granddaughters, and close friends visited the home. There were reports that a family meeting had been called at the house, but these were denied by family members. Although it was clear that Mandela had been fading, Zuma's announcement came without warning for most people. And in a country where people tend to go to bed relatively early, many probably were

asleep by the time the president went on TV. "He is now resting. He is now at peace," Zuma said. Shortly after 2 a.m., a long, slow-moving convoy left Mandela's home, escorted by dozens of police officers on motorcycles riding in a V formation with their lights flashing. A black van carried Mandela's coffin, draped in the national flag. Low-flying helicopters hovered overhead as the procession pulled onto the highway to Pretoria. A handful of late-night onlookers recorded the somber moment with their cellphone cameras. Zuma said that the nation's flags would be lowered to half staff until after his funeral. Mandela is expected to be buried in a private family cemetery in his home village of Qunu in the Eastern Cape, not far from his birth village of Mvezo. Zuma appealed to his countrymen to look beyond their grief, to strive for the future of the country and to be what Mandela would have wanted them to be. "Although we knew that this day would come, nothing can diminish our sense of a profound and enduring loss," Zuma said in his speech from the government building in Pretoria. "This is the moment of our deepest sorrow."

Don’t worry, just be happy Kayla Venuto

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, approximately 20.9 million Americans, or about 9.5 percent of the U.S. population, have a mood disorder. I personally struggled with depression in the past, but I chose to be happier. Despite the fact that genes account for about 50 percent of happiness, I have a strong belief that one can truly be happy if they simply monitor the way their mind works. Recent breakthroughs in psychology, neurology and chemistry have revealed that happiness is attainable. To begin the road to happiness you must start with yourself. Begin immediately by changing the way you think. Eliminate all the negativity from your thoughts and remind yourself of all the things you have to be thankful for in your life.

The unconditional love and support from your family and friends, your progressing college education or maybe even your new iPad. Remember how well off you have it compared to somebody in a third world country and stop complaining. Imagine instead how you can help others who are not as fortunate as you. Secondly, think positively and look at the bright side of every situation. As Abraham Lincoln once said, “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” Alleviate the negativity from your life by treating everyone the way you would like to be treated. Be polite, honest and genuinely kind to everyone you encounter. You never know what a person is going through, and a kind comment or a quick hello can truly put a smile on their face. And, in turn, make you a happier person. Next, urge yourself to see the beauty in yourself. Stop telling yourself you are not good enough, pretty enough


or smart enough. Once you are able to see the positives in yourself, it is easier to see the beauty in others. Now think about what currently angers you, whether it’s a friend, an enemy or an exhausting professor. Learn

how to forgive and forget. Let go of petty grudges and diminish the anger that is inside of you. Don’t let anger and grudges control your life. As Confucius believed, “To be wronged is nothing, unless you continue

to remember it.” Cherish the happy things in your life instead. To put it simply: Smile more, judge less and compliment the beauty in yourself and others, every single day. Go ahead and be happy!

In a relationship? Don’t forget about your friends SAM HARRIS

Guest Columnist

Just because you have a significant other does not mean you can’t have other friends. Over the years, I’ve seen many of my friends get into serious relationships and forget all about their other friends. We’ll go from hanging out every day to not seeing each other for weeks at a time, just because they are now in a relationship. Spending every moment with your significant other, awake or asleep, may not be the best decision. If you rush into things, never separate and don’t hang out with other people, things will quickly go wrong. You may get sick of each, things they do might become annoying and you’ll fight about pointless things. You’ll also miss out on all the fun adventures your friends are having. You may think this person is the one you’re going to marry. If that’s the case, shouldn’t you spend more time with your friends? If you think you’re going to spend the rest of your life with that one person, then

you’ll have a lifetime of things to do together. But your friends will come and go, and it’s often hard to find time to see them when you’re all out of school and in the professional world. Your friends are always there for you. They have been there during good times and bad. They were there before the relationship and they’ll be there after the break up. But, if you close them out of your life during the relationship, they may not be so welcoming when you try crawling back to the group. Many relationships that start in college see long distances separate significant others during holiday breaks and the summer. If the first time you try to hang out with your friends in a long time is during a break, and is just because you can’t see your significant other, it tells your friends that they’re only important to you when they’re convenient and they aren’t good for anything but to ease your boredom while you sulk about not seeing that special someone. If you think bringing your significant other to friend

hangouts remedies the problem, you might be severely mistaken. This tells your friends that you really can’t go anywhere without your significant other. Bringing them along every once in a while shouldn’t be a problem, but if it’s every time your friends want to hangout with you, then they might stop inviting you. And, if you make plans with your friends to do something together but then back out of it because your special someone wants you to do something with them, your friends will feel insulted and hurt. The big question is: Why can’t you equally hangout with the people who are important to you? If your significant other really does care about you, then they will understand that you want to spend time


with your other friends. You don’t want to let your relationship get stale, so mixing up the people you see might even help your relationship last longer. Individuals in relationships should want the other to be happy, and if seeing their friends brings joy to that person, it should be just fine to let them see the other important people in their lives, even if it’s without you. If you do hangout with your friends but are always

on your phone texting your significant other, you’re basically ignoring your friends and shouldn’t have even come anyway. But, that’s a whole different argument. The main point is that when you do get into a relationship; don’t forget that there are other people out there who still want to spend time with you. So, don’t forget about your friends, because they were special to you before you got a special friend.

Sidecar Coffee offers quick java and quiet atmosphere RACHEL BALDUS Staff Writer

On a Sunday evening after break, Sidecar Coffee Shop was buzzing with the sounds of college kids and townies coming back from the holidays. Placed on College Hill, the shop gives college students a nice place to study and socialize right off campus. When people walk in, they see a shop that seems cramped at first due to its narrowness. However, it is long and the placement of the seating provides a spacious area. Behind the counter, the two guys working were very friendly and welcoming. They gave suggestions and were willing to explain any of the menu items, showing how knowledgeable they were about the shop’s products. They were witty and charming and they conversed with the customers. Though I am wondering if staff members are actually like this or are just perfect salesmen, the service is

quite pleasant. The employee making the drinks even came out from behind the counter to ask how everything went. It seems the customer’s happiness comes first. The service was fairly prompt. The barista making the drinks put designs on the lattes, including Christmas trees, Venus fly traps and even the Ghost of Christmas Past, that were decimated by the first decadent sips. There’s nothing like having some good humor and art to go along with the beverage. The drinks were no disappointment. My favorite of the day, suggested by the staff, was the chai latte. The chai is one of several house-made drinks and it was fresh and of excellent quality. It was put in a classic cup to give it a more “come and stay awhile feel” (to-go cups are also available). A latte called the Van Fleet had orange zest that was a bit too prominent, consuming the overall flavor. For people who like fruity flavored coffee drinks,

this may be the drink for them. The Frank Sinatra, on the other hand, was quite alluring. The ingredient labeled “piercing blue eyes” may have been the culprit that made this drink such a sweet treat. The beverages are decently priced considering coffee is not cheap anymore. Most items are about $3-4. A medium latte is $3.75 and a simple to-go coffee is $2. The prices seem to be equal to or cheaper than those at Starbucks. Sidecar also has partnered with Scratch Cupcakery. The bakery provides goods such as carrot cake, cookies and cream krispie bars. To my disappointment, Sidecar was lacking actual cupcakes. Atmosphere-wise, the color scheme of yellow, reds and browns creates a warm, homey feeling. Silver chairs provide a modern twist on this cozy space. Comfortable red sofas and chairs are placed in a corner to create more of an intimate, inviting setting. There also are tables to sit at to eat and drink

or even work. To make things convenient, outlets are placed everywhere and they contain USB plug-ins. This makes it the perfect place to spend long hours without worrying that the technology will die. More art adorns the walls. Photographs by Tim Dodd Photography hang around the shop and they are for sale. Sidecar Coffee Shop also

offers sandwiches and soup. Beer is also available for those who enjoy the coffee shop atmosphere more than the noisy bar scene. Overall, Sidecar Coffee Shop was exceptional. It seems a bit disorganized, but that is to be expected of any newly opened cafe. I would recommend it. A great atmosphere, good beverages and friendly service are right at one’s fingertips.


Cedar Falls gets down with the holidays CORREY PRIGEON Staff Writer

Merchants all along Cedar Falls’ downtown Main Street prepared for Thursday’s onslaught of shoppers who arrived for the city’s 12th annual Jingle and Mingle, part of the fifth annual Holiday Hoopla. “It’s a very positive event; people look forward to it,” said Emily Yaddof, events and program coordinator for the downtown area. “People have even changed their plans so they could be here instead of somewhere else. It’s a nice sort of family tradition during the holiday


season.” Jingle and Mingle kicked off on Black Friday with the arrival of Santa Claus on the scene. Along with St. Nick’s arrival, children caroling, troller rides provided by the Cedar Falls Public Library and a live Nativity scene was held on the corner of 6th Street and Main Street. The event has grown over the years, according to Yaddof. As a nonprofit event, Jingle and Mingle is funded by sponsors. “It does bring more shoppers downtown, which brings more money to them,” Yaddof said. “But the city

itself doesn’t directly benefit from it.”Both new and established businesses were encouraged to take part in the event. Some of the newer stores that participated were Here’s What’s Poppin’, a local popcorn shop, Uptown Tots, a shop selling clothing and accessories for toddlers, and PurseNality, a purse and accessory boutique. “I’m hoping that we’ll be busy and that customers realize that we’re here and start doing Christmas shopping and that we have an excellent downtown,” said Ruth Beek, owner of Uptown Tots.

Nguyen performed a solo in “Ave Maria,” one of several songs featured every year, and performed in the annual skit. “I was terrified for my solo, but then as soon as I sang I was fine,” said Nguyen. “In the skit I wasn’t really nervous. It’s just like the preshow nerves you get and then you go in there you just kind of transfer it into energy that can be used and transfer your character out.” Of the Glee Club’s performances, Ave Maria was a favorite among the men and the crowd. “I love coming back seeing those things, the traditions they do,” said Emily Goering, UNI alumna. Nguyen said he started tearing up at the end of “Ave Maria.” “That’s where so much history comes out. … I was like ‘oh no, oh no, this is bad. This isn’t even my last year and I’m crying,’” said Nguyen. “The fact that we aren’t an auditioned group, so when we sing ‘Ave Maria’ it kind of shows how great of a group we are to sing such a traditional piece well year after year.” This year’s show featured a brand new set that cost $60,000, according to Michael Alexander, sophomore vocal performance major and Glee Club member. “Basically, we looked back at

After halftime, with the Iowa Chairiots in the lead, 22 to 13, the teams swapped scores to give the UNI athletes an advantage. The ending result was close with the Iowa Chairiots winning 47 to 44. “My favorite part of the game was working with the students and athletes and letting them experience the sport of adapted basketball,” Eherenman said. “I could see the joy of playing in something on an equal level with all of them, and the fun of just playing with each other. It was a great night in that respect.” During the game, the raffle had items ranging from gift cards and T-shirts to the grand prize of a 30 minute plane ride at the Waterloo Regional Airport with two friends. The winners were announced throughout the game.



Marsh said. “Even if it’s cold, people can come inside the stores, get refreshments and warm up. This is probably right up there with Black Friday and Christmas Eve.” Jenny Bagenspos, owner of Here’s What’s Poppin, said she was looking forward to the added business brought on by the event. “Once Christmas is over who knows what the rest of the winter will bring, so we welcome any business,” said Bagenspos. our old set and saw that it was deteriorating and we decided that we should get a new set that we can invest in for 15 years,” said Nguyen. Something else new for this year’s performance was that the club raised money and food donations for the Northeast Iowa Food Bank. “We didn’t put a goal on the amount of food we were going to collect or the amount of donations,” said Wiles. “It was new for our audience, so our goal this time was to collect as much as we could but to try to build something for what the coming years will be.” Overall, Glee Club members and audience members agreed that the show was a success. “I thought it was great,” said Bailey St. Clair, freshman math education major. “I’ve never been to anything like it before.” Katie Kustra, sophomore business management major, has attended the show multiple times. She said the show had lost its surprise but still held its magic. “It’s so funny and I love all the characters from movies and shows I’ve seen,” Kustra said. Nguyen said he was proud of the Glee Club and the show they put on. “I am extremely happy with how we performed three nights — three shows — consecutively,” said Nguyen. “It’s the crowd that really brings the energy out in us.

Classic at Big 4

Panthers outscored 20-11 in overtime period COLE BAIR

Sports Writer

The University of Northern Iowa men’s basketball team made the short trip to Des Moines Saturday for a matchup against the instate rival the Cyclones. Iowa State University came into the game with an undefeated record and a national ranking of 17. UNI started the game as good as they could have hoped, as they held a 22-9 lead nearly eight minutes into the first half. Coach Ben Jacobson’s offense was paced in the first half by bench players Nate Buss and Jeremy Morgan. Buss scored 14 first-half points, flashing an offensive repertoire of turnaround jumpers, dribbledrives and 3-pointers. The Panthers extended their lead to 18 points just four minutes into the second half, but the Cyclones proved to be too much on offense. ISU closed the gap with a 23-2 run over a seven-minute span in the second half. UNI responded with a quick 7-0 run. Down by three points with

time expiring, Seth Tuttle hit an off-balance, one-handed 3-pointer that tied the game at 71 and sent the game into overtime. With the Cyclones’ leading scorer, Georges Niang, fouled out, ISU’s Melvin Ejim, DeAndre Kane and Dustin Hogue took over. The Cyclones outscored the Panthers 20-11 in the extra period. Kane, Ejim and Hogue combined for 18 of the Cyclones’ 20 overtime points. Buss finished with 23 points and seven rebounds on 10-14 shooting. Redshirt sophomore Wes Washpun played 42 minutes, mainly at the point guard position. Backcourt teammate Deon Mitchell struggled to be effective as a distributor, recording zero assists while turning the ball over five times. Mitchell has dished out only 15 assists and has made an egregious 18 turnovers. Matt Bohannon is five for his last 31 from 3-point range in his last four games. The Panthers will look to get back on track at 7 p.m. at home Tuesday night against Savannah State University.

The Northern Iowa wrestling team continued their strong start to the 20132014 season at the Cliff Keen Invitational in Las Vegas over the weekend. The invitational was an excellent measuring stick for the sixth-ranked Panthers, as it included 13 of the nation’s top 25 teams,

according to the InterMat rankings. UNI finished in sixth place with four wrestlers earning medals. After the first day of competition, Dylan Peters, Joe Colon and Cooper Moore were in the hunt to win their respective weight classes, but fell just short on day two.  See INVITE, page 9

The University of Northern Iowa split a pair of nonconference games this week as they fell to Iowa State University in Ames and won their third game of the season against Saint Louis University at the McLeod Center. Madison Weekly led UNI in scoring with 16 points in the 83-55 loss against the 20thranked Cyclones. The Panthers were outscored in the first half 43-26 while shooting just 31 percent from the field. Hallie Christofferson led the Cyclones with a game-high 22 points while adding five rebounds and five assists. Brooke Brown scored 10 points and was 3-3 from behind the arc for UNI. The Panthers made 10 3-pointers on 22 attempts against the Cyclones. UNI bounced back in a game of scoring runs against SLU Saturday as the Panthers won 74-65. Amber Sorenson

led UNI in scoring off the bench with 17 points. Sorenson hit a game-high four 3-pointers as the team went 8-31 from behind the arc in the contest. Weekly’s 3-pointer capped of a 7-0 run in the first two minutes of the contest for UNI. SLU put together a run of their own to tie the game at 9-9 shortly after. Sadie Stipanovich led the Billikens in scoring with 17 points and a game-

high 10 rebounds. The Panthers’ second unit responded with another 7-0 run with back-to-back layups from Jen Keitel. Keitel had 16 points and six rebounds in 22 minutes off the bench. The Panther bench scored 40 points in the game. Despite the scoring runs, the Panthers found themselves down 29-27 at halftime.  See WOMEN, page 9





New rules hurting flow of basketball games SEAN DENGLER

Sports Columnist

The game of basketball is full of smooth layups, beautiful 3-point shots and now a lot of whistles. Those whistles are ruining college basketball. I have been to a few Panther men’s and women’s basketball games this year, and I have noticed that the games seem to drag on a lot longer than games in previous years. For those who may not know, the NCAA has tweaked their rules. They took a cue from the National Basketball Association by decreasing the physical play in the hopes of creating more offensive flow. Without the change, defen-

Those three wrestlers plus Joey Lazor were the four wrestlers able to come out of Las Vegas with medals. Peters, ranked seventh in the country at 125 pounds, entered the tournament with a record of 6-0, and all of his victories have ended in pins. He continued his pin streak the first day of the tournament, going 3-0, all by pin. Peters saw his streak end with a 4-2 loss to secondranked Nahshon Garrett of Cornell University. He responded with a 15-13 decision over sixth-ranked Tyler Cox of the University of Wyoming to finish in fifth place. Colon, undefeated and ranked fourth in the country, entered the meet as the number-one seed in the 133pound weight class. The first day, Colon won all three of his matches by pin, technical fall and decision. After a loss to No. 16 Johnni DiJulius of Ohio State University, he rebounded with a 16-0 technical fall over No. 14 Mark Grey of Cornell for third place.

UNI went on a 24-11 run in the final 7 minutes, 5 seconds to pull away for good. Keitel scored 8 points during the run and was 6-6 from the line down the stretch. The Panthers made 14 of 18 free

sive players could more easily prevent offensive players from getting into the paint. It actually worked quit well for the professionals, but the games I have been to have been disrupted by all the whistles. These whistles result in more fouls being called, which is evident by the higher freethrow attempt statistic. Last year, the leading team in the NCAA, Villanova University, attempted 26.4 free throws per game. This year, the University of Kentucky leads the NCAA with 36.9 free throws attempted. This is no fluke because almost every team’s free throws have been inflated with the increase in fouls. With this increase in At 165 pounds, Moore outperformed his fifth seed by finishing in fourth place. After winning his first match in a 6-2 decision, Moore pinned Derrick Booth of North Idaho College and finished the day undefeated with a 3-1 decision over No. 10 Joseph Booth of Hofstra University. Moore split his first two matches of day two to put himself in the third-place match against No. 8 Daniel Yates of the University of Michigan. He came close to beating Yates with a near pin but fell just short, settling for fourth place. Lazor was the only Panther to place after losing a match on day one. Finishing 3-1 in the first day of action, Lazor overwhelmed his opponents, winning by pin and decisions of 11-4 and 10-0, respectively. He came out of the gates strong on day two, beating the University of Virginia’s Joseph Spisak 5-3 before losing his next match and injury defaulting to Gabe Moreno of Iowa State University to take eighth place. The Panthers’ next match will be the UNI Open, starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 14 in the UNI-Dome. throws in the second half and shot 78 percent in the game from the charity stripe. The Panthers begin a fourgame road stretch against the University of South Dakota on Tuesday. UNI has two final nonconference games before beginning Missouri Valley Conference play.

attempted free throws, college basketball teams have seen an increase in their total points per game. This year’s leader, Boise State University, is scoring 93.6 points per game while last year’s leader, Northwestern State University, scored 81 points per game. This increase may look good in the eyes of the NCAA, but more college basketball games are being dictated by the referees with the increase of whistles. This whistle blowing also slows down the game and causes fans to lose interest when the game is being stopped every thirty seconds for another handchecking call. College basketball teams will adjust accordingly in the
