Campus Event

Class teaches defense for friends, foes Kathryn Kriss

Staff Writer kathryn.kriss@drake.edu

Each year, Drake University conducts a self-defense course aimed at teaching college students, male and female alike, basic techniques to defend themselves in a dangerous situation. “Defend Against the Aggressive,” hosted by Coordinator for Sexual Violence Response and Healthy Relationship Promotion Alysa Mozak and social fraternity Pi Kappa Phi, gathered a group of students in the Bell Center on a Friday evening to talk about the psychology of an attack and how to avoid one. Senior David Heineman, who has trained in martial arts for over a decade, taught the basics. Heineman, accompanied by Mozak, began by explaining the typical attack ­— it’s usually by somebody you know and trust. Most attackers use sneaky techniques to exploit you and gain your trust and sympathy. They use this to mentally manipulate and control you, then physically attack. The point of the course was to not ever let them gain that control. The one point Heineman and Mozak stressed the most was that nothing the victim ever does makes it their fault. They are a million “what-ifs” in risky situations, but there is never an excuse for a violent or sexual attack. Another main point was that most attacks can easily be prevented in the span of a few seconds by simply being aware and observant. Tips like staying with a buddy are just as important as the more overlooked things, like not playing music or talking on your phone when walking alone at night, or simply knowing who’s around you at all times. A little alertness goes a long way. Heineman got a chance to share

scenarios like being grabbed by the wrist or from behind. Each situation may have called for different moves, but the principle was still the same — put the attacker on the defensive. By properly squirming, twisting and hitting the right areas, a 5’3” girl could easily get out of a 6’0” guy’s chokehold. Sophomore Jacob Vandervaart

organized the event as a way to keep students safe, as well as make Pi Kappa Phi known on campus. “We wanted to be different, and counteract the ‘frat stereotype’ (of) being inappropriate towards women. What’s the best way to do that? A self-defense class,” Vandervaart said.

Drake University prides itself on its ability to send students overseas and now two new opportunities are being added to that repertoire. The first is a chance for students to immerse themselves in the art of Florence, Italy, while the second is an opportunity to live with a family in Madrid, Spain. Like other summer programs, the trips are directed by faculty and allow students to travel while

earning course credit. The trips to Italy and Spain join the list of other summer study seminar programs with destinations of Egypt, Uganda, South Africa and China. According to the Drake study abroad website, the trip to Florence, Italy is a “five-week course, based on an integration of studio art and graphic design, will explore the visualization of information and narrative and how it applies to human experience.” Students will take a mapping course through Drake, as well as an art class through the

Projectors to add New kind of hunger games professionalism teaches world food inequality Alec Hamilton

Staff Writer alec.hamilton@drake.edu

Student Senate was short and quick this last Thursday, ending after approximately 45 minutes and having only one resolution to vote upon. Senate endorsed a resolution to install LCD projectors in two rooms in the Olmsted Center, Cowles Library room 201 (The Fishbowl) and in residence hall study rooms. However, they did pass two amendments to the resolution. The first amendment was to support the presence of projectors in all these locations, not necessarily the installation of them. This change was proposed by Sen. Stephen Slade to address concerns whether or not the residence halls needed to have the projectors installed in the study rooms and if having them available for checkout at the front desk wouldn’t encourage students to use them more. The amendment passed with only Sen. Ethan Gascho voting nay. The second amendment added the Medbury Honors lounge as an area of priority to receive an LCD projector. Sen. Breanna Thompson believes Medbury should receive a

projector as soon as possible. “I really think Medbury Honors lounge should be added,” Thompson said. “Not only do groups use it, but we also have speakers come in, and it’s unprofessional to have to put projectors on tables or chairs.” The second amendment passed unanimously. The resolution to endorse the placing of the projectors also passed unanimously. The new projectors will be paid for with money out of the Office of Information Technology’s budget. Dean of Students Sentwali Bakari presented a short administrative report, saying that student life is working on putting together an assessment to see if students are learning from their participation in Drake University’s numerous student organizations. Sen. Becca Mataloni reported that the Board of Student Communications (BSC) is continuing to establish its own by-laws, rules and regulations. They are also considering changing servers for the online editions of Drake’s student publications. Sen. Natalie Gadbois reported that the Cline Atrium project is on track to be finished by the start of next semester, but might be cutting it close.

Dozens of Drake University students will converge in Parents Hall in Olmsted Center on Wednesday to get a free meal and learn about how the world’s food is unevenly distributed. The event is put on by ONE, an advocacy organization that fights against poverty and preventable diseases, and by the Oxfam International branch in Des Moines. The group works with a myriad of countries around the globe in an effort to find lasting solutions to poverty and injustice issues. “The point of the Hunger Banquet is to demonstrate how hunger power structures create unequal access to the food that does exist,” said senior Katie Bell, ONE co-president. “There is plenty of food in the world for everyone, but inequalities make it so that not everyone receives it.” Bell said students who attend the event would be assigned a social class based on the number of students who attend. Most of the students will be placed in the lower class, a fewer number will be placed in the middle class and a couple students will be placed in the upper class. The upper class gets a full meal, whereas the lower class will get a very small meal. “We’re hoping that students will get a first hand idea of how real hunger is in the sense that it isn’t a choice and people are born into poverty. That has real repercussions in multiple areas of their life,” Bell said. While students eat, a member

This event is one of ONE’s biggest events, second only to their

The group also hosts various educational activities and letter writing sessions asking politicians to use the budget towards sustainable budget initiatives throughout the semester. “Hopefully students will see that hunger inequalities exist and will feel empowered to help make a difference,” Bell said.

Students speak out against Sandusky sentence James Siegle

Staff Writer james.siegle@drake.edu

Students at Drake University have expressed their distaste at the sentence of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Sandusky, 68, was found guilty of 45 counts of molestation in June. On Oct. 9, he was sentenced to no less than 30 years and no more than 60, according to Yahoo! Sports. The length of his sentence has riled many Drake students. “Not good enough. Absolutely not good enough,” said journalism senior Mike Wendlandt. “It’s about eight months per incident. Anyone who molests a child should be put in prison for life.”

Mark Fouad, a second-year pharmacy student from Egypt agreed. “It’s (garbage). Give him a life sentence,” Fouad said. Dakota Johansen, a senior politics major just wants Sandusky to end his life behind bars. “Personally I don’t think I’d ever want him released,” Johansen said. Johansen did acknowledge Sandusky’s age makes his 30-year minimum “essentially a life sentence.” Although it is unlikely Sandusky will be living when he is eligible for parole, his sentencing causes another problem. “This sets a precedent,” said Stephanie Esker, a junior business major. “What if he was, say, 30

(years old)? He could be free and live another 40 years.” A few students believe even a life sentence would be inadequate. Drew Foster, a senior education major is one of those students. “He should have been sentenced to death,” Foster said. Sophomore business major Kyle Tobin expressed the same sentiment. “I think he deserves life in prison or the death sentence,” Tobin said. “What he did to those kids deserves the worst possible punishment the United States can offer.” Sandusky’s attorneys have vowed to appeal the conviction, according to CNN.

Justice Wiggins retained in Iowa

Class signJudiciary branch not founded on ideologies up woes Jared Hanel Columnist

As many of you know, Iowa Supreme Court Justice David Wiggins held onto his seat after voters on Tuesday opted for retainment. For many, the vote for his retainment was less about Wiggins and more about same-sex marriage in Iowa. For me, not only is it about same-sex marriage, but also about the perseverance of the ideologies

of a true judiciary. In April 2009, the Iowa Supreme Court made a unanimous and monumental decision to pass same-sex marriage as a ruling in the Varnum v. Brien case. Bob Vander Plaats, president and CEO of The Family Leader, a social conservative organization, has since traveled around the state in order to rally for the removal of every justice that was part of the decision. To my dismay, this man is actually successful at getting three of those justices removed so far. Our government was founded on three branches: the executive, the legislative and the judicial. Our founding fathers established this system of checks and balances to govern the sovereign people while guaranteeing that one branch cannot have absolute power. The judiciary was founded in absence of political agenda. This branch is to interpret the law and form a ruling accordingly.

In April 2009, the Iowa Supreme Court interpreted the law and ruled the ban of same-sex marriage unconstitutional. Now, I know that for one reason or another, many readers may disagree with the ruling. Whether it be religious, or whether you think the concept of a man and a man or a woman and a woman is just vile to think about, but think about this, all of those justices on the court are men married to women, have children, and were appointed to the court by governing officials of both conservative and a liberal nature based upon their proven experience and exceptional ethic. They are not Democrats seeking to allow gays to marry and to pass any liberal agenda that they come across. As an individual that is personally affected by this ruling, of course I am proud such a colossal step forward was taken by the great state of Iowa. I’m ecstatic

that those affected by this ruling will be able to marry the one they love. I am thrilled for the simple fact that Iowa made a monumental step towards national equality and humanitarianism. With my personal feelings and political views aside, as a constituent, I would still vote for the retention of the Supreme Court justices even if they were to decide to uphold the ban on same-sex marriage. After all, their appointment was made for the interpretation of governing law which is exactly what the justices did that day.

‘Girls’ an HBO hit

Respect election results

Relatable, edgy comedy

Olivia O’hea Columnist HBO’s new series, “Girls,” completed its first season this past June, receiving massive critical praise and five Emmy nominations. Created by and starring Lena Dunham, the show follows the lives of four New York women eternally stuck in the cycle of boyfriends, jobs, parties and hookups. This show is no “Sex in the City,” though, and Dunham is, if anything, the anti-Carrie Bradshaw. Cut off by her parents, Dunham’s character Hannah tries to hold onto a minimum wage job and an emotional roller coaster of a relationship while pursuing a career in writing. Hannah lives with her best friend Marnie, played by Allison Williams, daughter of NBC anchor Brian Williams. While Marnie has a great job at an art gallery and a committed boyfriend, she constantly questions her “boring” life, wondering if she is squandering her years as a 20-something New Yorker. Zosia Mamet plays Shosanna, an innocent New York University student and avid “Sex and the City fan” (Dunham often plays this

into the plotlines ironically), is a friend of Hannah and Marnie. Finally Jemima Kirke portrays Jessa, Shosanna’s whimsical European cousin who travels the world and enjoys a good party. Produced by Judd Apatow, famous for films like “Anchorman,” “Bridesmaids” and “Superbad,” the show has been hailed as both refreshing and edgy. As with most HBO shows, the episodes are packed with sex, drugs and drama. Yet, Dunham’s writing is so dryly original that it never feels overdone. Dunham broke into the comedy scene with her independent film “Tiny Furniture” and continues to build her reputation as an up-and-coming comedy queen, thanks to the support of friends like Apatow. She could be the younger, cruder sister of Tina Fey and her recent tweets promise more laughs, awkward hookups and oddly themed parties in the upcoming season premiering this January. If you’re looking for the glamorized New York a la “Sex and the City,” this is not the show for you. However, if you’re looking for a witty, observational comedy/drama that is at times, both scandalous and painfully relatable, then this is your future Sunday night go-to show. Simply put, these girls could be your best friends if your best friend was a cool New York hipster with no money and commitment problems.

Brianna Steier Columnist Social media is a hotbed for public opinion, especially during election seasons. The wise take a break from social media during this point in time, but the rest of us are subjected to an onslaught of biased opinions, as if we don’t get enough of that from the TV ads. If pre-election wasn’t bad enough, the social media blitz didn’t stop after Tuesday. Some of the most colorful commentary was posted after the results from both parties. I’ll share my personally favorite themes that I stumbled upon in my Facebook escapades. “Obama won? Pack the bags, we’re moving to Canada.” All right, let’s back up the overreaction train. You’re not leaving the country. If you are, I’m curious as to why Canada is your country of choice, considering Canada’s government is significantly more socialist than our United States. But go ahead, I’ll call the U-Haul. “Good thing Obama was reelected, now I won’t have to worry about the women I love going out alone.” Yes, conservatives were not on their game regarding sensitivity to sexual assault during the campaign (see Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock). However, I am almost

certain that had Gov. Mitt Romney been elected, our women would not have had to be afraid to go outside. I’m sorry, but having a leader with a “binder full of women” as our Commander-in-Chief does not equate to a “free-for-all” on the women of this country. “What’s next? I can marry my dog?” Not only is this status just plain rude and offensive, it is also extraordinarily ignorant. No, friend, gay marriage will never lead to marrying your dog, no matter how much we love our furry friends. Women’s right to vote never led to the right for guinea pigs to vote. Black people are now allowed to attend school with white people, does that mean my goldfish has an equal right to education? No, of course not. These assumptions are ludicrous. You and your dog will just have to settle — my apologies. I guess what I’m really trying to say by sharing these examples is that Republican, Democrat, conservative or liberal, we are all American and should not let the election of our leader define what we stand for. How are we able to be a force in today’s world if we cannot stand behind our leader? No matter what party they may belong to, the president will never work for the demise of our country, they will lead in their own way and they will protect the American people to the best of their ability. The least we can do is have respect for our leaders, our fellow Americans, and also, our social media community by thinking before we post.

Jessica Ott Columnist The first time you register, it’s pretty easy. You have your orientation leaders to help you pick the balance of courses for your major and Areas of Inquiry that you need for your first semester. The second time you register, you notice that the more hours you have, the sooner you can register, which means things should get easier and easier and easier. Except they don’t. You wake up at what feels like the crack of dawn, boot up your computer, hope the Internet is working, enter the course numbers and find out that you can’t get into half of your dream schedule because it’s filled or it’s temporarily closed to you due to your major. That is why for many students, registration is one of, if not the most, frustrating thing to do in blueView. There are multiple improvements that I think can be made to make things easier on students. Number one: On the Registration or “Add/Drop Classes” page, display the times of the classes they’ve signed up/have been waitlisted for. If students have easy access to the time of the courses they’re already in, it’ll be easier for them to figure out what times work best as far as squeezing in other classes is concerned. Number two: Pay attention to supply and demand. There are multiple factors that go into deciding how many sections of a course are open. However, if one course fills up early, Drake University should really consider opening another section, especially since a lot of these classes are AOI or honors courses that students need to graduate. This gets especially problematic with the Artistic Experience AOI, where the majority of classes are art, music and theater classes that are initially closed, and may fill up before the majority of students have a chance. Number three: Advertise the classes that aren’t full a bit more. I got an email about a course on Sustainable Development, I hadn’t considered it when I looked at the possible courses I can take for my Engaged Citizen AOI. But looking at in the email made it seem fun.

Food cleanses focus on ridding the body of additives

Weight loss trend allows for natural, healthy food consumption Brayton Deprey

Staff Writer brayton.deprey@drake.edu

Everyone wants to shed those last few unwanted pounds, but lately, trendy new “food cleanse” diets are emerging and promising quick and easy weight loss. And while these tight regimens are jam packed with healthy food, are there methods healthy and safe overall? Livestrong.com joined the widespread trend by posting almost 20 new cleanse diets, but included an informational warning as well. The purpose of a cleanse is to eat mostly natural foods and rid the body of chemical additives for, on average, seven days. While many people claim to see

results, the research is not backed by modern day science and professionals urge potential cleanse users to talk to a doctor or nutritionist before beginning. Dieticians, like Sina Teskey, of Region’s Hospital in St. Paul, Minn., have issued their concerns online as well. Teskey explained that a lot of cleanses subject dieters to nutritional deficiencies and other health problems because of lack of calories and protein.

The key to Stutzman’s success was not her cutting out calories or shrinking portions, like most

cleanses require, but simply substituting chemical-ridden and unnatural food with all naturals, like fruits, vegetables, soups and beef. But is this trend really onto something new? Care2makeadifference.com, a website devoted to providing healthier home alternatives, and Bon Appétit, an acclaimed food magazine, would say “no.” There really isn’t anything new about losing weight by eating healthier. Everyone has experienced their mother pushing them to eat an apple instead of a cookie, change out that can of soda for a bottle of water. Care2makeadiffernece.com, instead of adding pages of cleans-

ing diets, instead posted articles about foods high in antioxidants that help cleanse the body by themselves, such as avocados, cranberries, garlic and lemons. By introducing healthier foods into the diet, while mixing in with possibly less healthy alternatives, the results won’t come as fast, but will stay for the long run. Cleanse diets, whether a fad or not, although not healthily sustainable for more than their suggested weeklong experience, are introducing younger demographics to the benefits of eating healthy. The key is being informed. .

Top Dogs: Drake dismantles Butler Jacksonville up next as Bulldogs eye back-to-back PFL titles Taylor Soule

Sports Editor tdsportsed@gmail.com

A dominant second half performance lifted Drake over conference-leading Butler on Saturday at Drake Stadium, improving the Bulldogs to 6-1 in Pioneer Football League play. Thanks to Saturday’s 45-20 victory, Drake needs only one more win to claim a share of the PFL title. Drake hasn’t won back-to-back titles since 1931-32. With PFL powerhouse Jacksonville looming on Saturday, Drake faces another must-win. Though Jacksonville threatens Drake, excitement beat any anxiety after Saturday’s Butler rout. “We’re really excited,” said head coach Chris Creighton. “We’re going to enjoy this one today and tonight. There hasn’t been back-to-back football championships here since 1931 and 1932, so it has been done before, but it has been a long time, and we made history going to Africa, and we want do something special again, so we’re excited about this game.” Drake dealt Butler its first PFL loss of the 2012 campaign, dropping Butler to 7-1 in PFL play. Drake’s offense sped down the field to open Saturday’s showdown as the Bulldogs closed within Butler’s 10-yard line. The Butler defense thwarted Drake’s touchdown hopes, though, sending freshman kicker Cam Bohnert onto the field on fourth down. Bohnert’s 10-yard try turned into a fumble as the Bulldogs dashed to regain possession. Butler scooped up the football, though, to take possession at the 22-yard line at the 8:24 mark.

With 5:48 remaining in the initial stanza, Butler quarterback Matt Lancaster found wide receiver Derek O’Connor in the end zone to give Butler a 6-0 advantage. Jon Troeloar’s extra point attempt ricocheted off the right post. Neither squad scored in the opening stanza’s remaining minutes. The PFL foes traded momentum to open the second stanza. With 6:13 to go, the Bulldogs opened a 73-yard drive with a 12-yard pass from fifth-year senior quarterback Mike Piatkowski to senior wide receiver Nick Rosa. The two teamed up a play later with a 38yard drive to reach Butler’s 23-yard marker. Drake completed the 73-yard drive with a touchdown as Piatkowski connected with senior wide receiver Joey Orlando. Bohnert’s try sailed through the uprights to give Drake its first lead at 7-6 with 4:02 left in the opening stanza. The Bulldogs used two key touchdowns to secure Saturday’s win. With Drake up 14-13, Piatkowski connected with sophomore wide receiver Grahm Butler on a 29-yard touchdown to take the 21-13 edge. A possession later, Piatkowski connected with sophomore running back Gary Scott Jr. for a touchdown and a 28-13 lead. Drake would go on to win 45-20 thanks to key defensive stops down the stretch. Piatkowski added to his already stellar career on Saturday. He completed 29-of-40 en route to 366 passing yards with a careerhigh five touchdowns. Stats aside, Creighton praised Piatkowski’s calls both on the ground and in the air. “I really think our quarterback, Mike Piatkowski, did a great job of calling the game, both the run and the pass,” Creighton said.

SENIOR TIGHT END KEVIN MARSHALL runs the football against Pioneer Football League rival Butler on Saturday at Drake Stadium. The Bulldogs throttled Butler 45-20. “He mixed it up well. I think that was the key to the offense.” Piatkowski credited Saturday’s win to Drake’s preparation. “We just had a great game plan,” Piatkowski said. “Butler has a good defense. We knew that if we executed our game plan, we would be fine, and we started doing that, and things got rolling and we started scoring.” The Bulldogs expect a versatile, experienced Jacksonville squad on Saturday.

Though Jacksonville owns the hometown advantage, Drake will look to out-prepare the Dolphins, who are fourth in the PFL standings. “It’s a whole different world going down there,” Rosa said. “We’ve got to make sure we’re hydrated. We’re going to be prepared. We’re going to be ready to go out there. We’ve just got to go out there and execute.”

Three-point barrage lifts Drake in opener

Simons, Carter lead Bulldog offense over Division II William Jewell Eduardo Tamez Zamarripa

Copy Editor eduardo.tamezzamarripa@drake.edu

Led by senior Ben Simons and junior Richard Carter, the Drake men’s basketball team (1-0) throttled Division II William Jewell in their season opener 96-66 in front of 3,273 fans at the Knapp Center on Saturday. Simons finished the game with 25 points on 9-of-13 from the field and Carter went off with 19 points and four assists in his first official game as a Bulldog. Carter made all four of his three-point attempts. Head coach Mark Phelps commented on Carter’s performance. “He can do that, he hasn’t shown that so far, but he can knock down threes,” Phelps said in a Drake athletics press release. “He’s a scoring point guard and he’s shown some of that. We want him to play in attack mode all the time. When he plays aggressively he plays better, and he needs to be consistent at being aggressive.” Drake put on an all-around impressive offensive performance, shooting 55.9 percent from the field, including 15-of-24 from three-point range. The Bulldogs also recorded 19 assists. William Jewell hit four of its first five shots and led 8-4 early on. After that, Drake took over the game. The Bulldogs led 40-32 at the half and shot 57.1 percent from the field. The Bulldogs pushed the tempo all game, scoring 14 points in transition and 18 points off turnovers. Drake broke it open in the second

half, outscoring William Jewell 5634. Drake’s bench gave the Bulldogs a boost with 38 points. Freshman Joey King chipped in 12 points and freshman Micah Mason went 3-of3 from three-point range to finish with nine points. Redshirt senior Jordan Clarke contributed seven points and seven rebounds. Redshirt junior Seth VanDeest finished with seven points and four rebounds. Despite winning by 30 points, Drake committed more turnovers (17) than William Jewell (14) and was outrebounded 36-34. But those statistics didn’t matter much in a game that Drake rolled offensively and dominated from three-point range. “We’re happy to get our first win and certainly have a lot of work to do,” Phelps said. “The competition gets a lot tougher next week with Detroit. We’re going to have to get better, but that’s what is supposed to happen to get better each week.” Drake has a challenging schedule away from home coming up next. The Bulldogs will hit the road to take on Detroit on Saturday at 6 p.m. Following that game, Drake will participate in the Anaheim Classic during Thanksgiving break. The tournament will feature California, Georgia Tech and Rice. Drake will not return to the Knapp Center until Dec. 5, when it will take on Nevada in the Mountain West-Missouri Valley Conference Challenge.

‘Attacking mentality’ drives Drake to victory Taylor Soule

Sports Editor tdsportsed@gmail.com

When Kyndal Clark entered the Knapp Center on Wednesday night, a single word guided the sophomore guard: attack. The Bulldogs followed Clark’s lead, using their outside attack to topple Upper Iowa in exhibition play, 8151. Clark tallied a game-high 25 points against the Peacocks on 11of-17 shooting. Though her sharp shooting caught the crowd’s attention, Clark credited the performance to her teammates. “This year, I know that I have to come out with an attacking mentality, and so I try to establish my inside presence first and then just kind of read what they’re giving me,” Clark said. “Not only that, I’m trying to read my teammates and get them open shots. They did a great job of finding me tonight.” The teams traded 3-pointers throughout Wednesday’s contest, but Drake edged Upper Iowa with 46.7 percent shooting behind the arc. Redshirt sophomore guard Carly Grenfell led Drake’s perimeter attack, sinking 3-of-4 3-pointers en route to 20 total points. With Drake down 9-8, Grenfell drained a key 3-pointer. A possession later, she scored inside to stretch Drake’s lead to 13-9. “Carly (Grenfell) is a great shooter, and she has really been putting the time in on her own, and I think it’s really showing,” Clark said. “The last couple of games, she has been hitting them, and she’s hitting them in practice and they’re well-deserved.” Drake’s inside attack comple-

mented its perimeter play on Wednesday as the Bulldogs outscored Upper Iowa 44-18 in the paint. In the first half, the Bulldogs used back-to-back layups to take a double-digit lead. With Drake up 24-15, sophomore forward Liza Heap scored inside. Upper Iowa’s next possession ended quickly as junior forward Morgan Reid stole the ball. Reid charged down the court to complete the play with a layup, extending Drake’s lead to 26-15. Drake would never relinquish its double-digit advantage, using a combination of inside and outside scoring to topple the Division II Peacocks. Though the Bulldogs dominated offensively behind the arc, their three-point defense faltered against Upper Iowa. “Part of our emphasis for this game was to get out and guard them on the three because we knew that they were three-point shooters,” Clark said. “We didn’t get out as much as we wanted to, and that’s something we need to work on.” The Bulldogs’ new, fast-paced system features a new, teamworkoriented defense. “We want to try to contest the shot first and contain the defense, but then also, be able to allow ball pressure and then be able to rely on our help defense,” Clark said. “A lot of what they are teaching us right now is to be able to put pressure but know that someone is going to be there to help you out.” Though the Bulldogs’ 2012-13 record won’t include Wednesday’s exhibition win, the victory gave fans a glimpse of the entire Drake

lineup. All 13 Bulldogs played against the Peacocks “We got to see some people play a little bit more, and it was just fun,” said head coach Jennie Baranczyk. “I think that’s one of the most important things to do, especially in the exhibition games and especially in our early play, is to get as many minutes as we can. You never know when someone’s number is going to be called.” The 81-51 victory gave Baranczyk a glimpse of the young Bulldogs’ development as Wednesday’s game marked their second try at the new, up-tempo system. “I’d like to see some three-point defense, maybe, but in all, we were very selective tonight with our three-point shot, and I think that worked for us,” Baranczyk said. “I think that was why (we won). We did a great job of attacking the rim, and when we couldn’t get to the rim, we went out for the three and knocked them down.” The Bulldogs are back in action against Illinois at Chicago on Sunday at the Knapp Center. Tip-off is set for 2:05 p.m. Drake took on South Dakota on Sunday (Nov. 11) at the Knapp Center. Results from that game will be available in Thursday’s issue of The Times-Delphic.

The Bulldogs bid two seniors farewell on Saturday at the Knapp Center with a 3-1 victory over Indiana State, improving Drake to 4-12 in Missouri Valley Conference play. Seniors Bentley Mancini and Jadranka Tramosljanin completed their Knapp Center careers, boosting Saturday’s stakes. “There was pressure on us,” said head coach Tony Sunga. “We wanted to do well for our seniors.” Drake didn’t falter under the pressure, though, as the Bulldogs outpaced Indiana State’s pesky offense. The Bulldogs won with set scores of 25-21, 25-22, 20-25 and 25-13. “We overcame points where they were digging us,” Sunga said. “We knew we needed to get back at them, and that perseverance was really the key tonight. It doesn’t hurt when our middle players are doing well and when our outside hitters are getting some kills, so it’s all-around. Key for us as a team was

hitting above .200.” Freshman middle blocker Cassie Effken led Drake’s offensive attack with 14 kills. Tramosljanin finished her last Knapp Center appearance with 12 kills and 16 digs. Mancini suffered a torn ACL a week ago against Bradley and is out for the season. The two-time letterwinner and senior captain finished her Drake career with 524 kills. Though Drake’s 2012 campaign won’t include a trip to the State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Championship, Sunga lauded the Bulldogs’ strides. “Every game, we’ve taken huge steps,” Sunga said. “How to play in somebody else’s gym in hostile territory. There’s no backing down from anybody. We started off with a pretty tough schedule, and I think it just made us better. It’s just good. It really just made us stronger in the end.” Though Tramosljanin’s Bulldog career will soon end, Saturday’s victory boosted Drake’s 2013 confidence. “The last home game is really important,” Tramosljanin said. “It

provides confidence for the next season.” Illinois State swept Drake on Friday night at the Knapp Center, 3-0, with set scores of 25-21, 25-23 and 25-10. The MVC foes traded momentum throughout the opening set, but Illinois State used a late 3-0 run to win 25-21. Drake gained an early advantage in the second stanza, but Illinois State again used a late offensive rally to take the set. A slow start doomed Drake in the third, allowing Illinois State to take an early lead. The Redbirds never relinquished that early lead, using several key kills to sweep the Bulldogs. Sophomore outside hitter Amanda Platte paced Drake with a game-high 11 kills against Illinois State. The Bulldogs will take on Missouri State at 7 p.m. on Friday in Springfield, Mo., and will then take on Wichita State on Saturday at 7 p.m. to finish their season.

Creighton halts Drake’s MVC title bid in double OT Eduardo Tamez Zamarripa

The season came to an end for Drake’s men’s soccer (6-11-4) on Friday after the Bulldogs’ upset bid came up short in heartbreaking fashion against No. 12 Creighton (14-32), losing 3-2 in double overtime in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament semi-finals at Shea Stadium. “Of course, the end of any season is disappointing. The game was one of many faces. We came up 1-0, and I thought we played well and then they took it to us for a little bit. I really thought at halftime we were up 1-0 and we would be alright. We were temporarily deflated and then fought back, and I think that’s really been the pattern that we’ve fallen all year,” said head coach Sean Holmes in a Drake athletics press release.

“For us next year to get to the level we want to be at consistently, you got to sustain a high level of effort for the 90 whole minutes. But we were resilient and we fought back, and I really thought at the end of the game that Brian Grand had a chance to maybe finish it off. But that’s how soccer is, that’s (how) our sport is.” A goal by Vincent Keller at the 106:31 mark ended Drake’s attempt for its third title game appearance in school history. The Bulldogs have not played in the MVC Championship since 2009 when they won the title. Redshirt sophomore Brian Grand gave Drake the 1-0 lead at the 32:35 mark. Junior Nick Marshall was credited with the assist. Creighton outshot Drake 12-7 in the first half with redshirt junior Rich Gallagher pulling in four saves to keep Drake’s lead intact.

It wasn’t until the 55:34 mark that the Bluejays tied it up with a strike from Jose Gomez. Just 34 seconds later, the Bluejays took the lead on an Eric Miller header. Following a corner from junior Addison Eck, fifth-year senior Michael Thaden blasted his team-leading seventh goal of the season to the tie the game at 2-2 at the 59:28 mark. Creighton came close to scoring late in the game, but the Bulldogs held on to head to overtime. Redshirt sophomore Jarred Arde almost scored to begin the second overtime. However, it was Keller’s strike with four minutes left before penalty kicks that ended Drake’s season. “Creighton, there’s a reason that they are consistently in the Top-20. They played with a great deal of composure,” Holmes said. “We’re not the

kind of team that plays for ties, but in the end we were in survival mode. Certainly for the good portion of the overtime.” Creighton outshot the Bulldogs 25-15 on the match. Gallagher finished with nine saves, and Thaden led Drake with five shots. Grand recorded four shots. Thaden and redshirt junior Jackson Teeling played in their last game as Bulldogs. Ten of 11 starters will be back for the Bulldogs next season, an encouraging sign for Drake’s future. “We can’t forget that at the end of September we were 1-7-2 and staring into the abyss, and it didn’t look like there was really much hope and we sort of re-grouped and built the second half of the season,” Holmes said. “I think we’ve gotten to a certain level and now the challenge is to take it to the next level.”

The Bulldogs defeated Evansville 2-1 on Wednesday to advance to the semi-finals. Freshman Eric Williams scored his first career goal with 24.8 seconds remaining to give Drake the win. Evansville took the early lead at the 16:33 mark thanks to a Joel Craig goal. The Bulldogs responded at the 23:56 mark to tie the game up. Arde scored his third goal of the season on a cross from Grand. Evansville outshot Drake 22-21 on the match, which was the Bulldogs’ highest shot total of the season. On Thursday, four Bulldogs received MVC accolades for their performances this season. Thaden earned first-team All-MVC honors. Gallagher and Eck garnered honorable mention selections. Freshman Alec Bartlett was recognized as an All-freshman team recipient.
