No. 21 Missouri falls at Reed Arena despite second-half rally James Sullivan

The Battalion abyon Harris — less than a minute removed from surrendering a crucial lead-changing turnover — knocked down the game-winning three-pointer to propel Texas A&M 70-68 over SEC rival No. 21 Missouri on Thursday night at Reed Arena. Despite dropping five of the past six games, the Aggies surged against their former Big 12 opponents, yielding the lead only once — for just 41 seconds in the final minute — during the entirety of the matchup. From A&M head coach Billy Kennedy’s perspective, his team’s substantial amount of effort, particularly in the first half, deserved credit for the upset victory. “I’m really proud of the fight our team had in the first 10 minutes of the game,” Kennedy said. “We came out ready to play. We haven’t had good starts the past few games and we came out with a really good start. Everybody executed their role.” Harris, a junior guard and first-

Three other Aggies — sophomore forward Kourtney Roberson as well as senior guard Elston Turner and forward Ray Turner — found their way into double-digit point totals for the night. During the first half A&M pushed the tempo, storming out to an early 11-point lead while forcing four turnovers from the Tigers. The Aggies ended the half with a six-point lead and an impressive 67 percent shooting from beyond the arc. A&M’s energetic style of play continued early in the second half as it rocketed to a 46–32 lead off a 10–2 run. From that point on, however, Missouri chipped away at the score before drilling a three-pointer with 53 seconds left to take the lead. “The whole team just seemed like they were a little bit more of an aggressor throughout the game,” Missouri senior guard Keion Bell said. “We did a really good job of fighting See Upset on page 2

Watermelon Queen sows industry message Molly Livingstone

Special to The Battalion

T

o most, watermelons make you think of the Fourth of July or a seed-spitting contest in your grandmother’s backyard. But to Kimberly Duda, watermelons represent a rich history and a progressive future that are much more than a simple summer memory. Along with being a senior psychology major, Duda holds the title of The Texas Watermelon Queen. She competes in pageants to represent the National Watermelon Association on a local and statewide level. “We are supposed to really push issues, including food safety, health care and immigration,” Duda said. “That’s why the competition is so intense.” Duda said there are many components to the pageants, including an interview, evening wear and speech portion. “My favorite part is the interview and being able to let the judges know why I

‘Downton Abbey’ enamors students with historical drama Elizabeth Evans

The Battalion revival of petticoats, fancy hairstyles, chaperones and elaborately served meals has taken televisions and hearts by storm across America and the UK. Period pieces – creative works that take place in earlier time periods – have come back into popularity with a vengeance. Set in early 20th century England, the critically acclaimed television show “Downton Abbey” is garnering an audience of millions, transporting viewers to a time when trousers and brooches were worn often and tea was ingested copiously. “I think ‘Downton’ is popular because it combines the classiness of the early 20th century with the drama of shows like ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’” said sophomore psychology major Madison Yarbrough. “We are interested in the way things were run, how our culture today can relate to theirs.” Callie Hobbs, sophomore horticulture major and selfproclaimed fan of the popular television show, said she likes “Downton Abbey” because of the alternative drama and unfamiliar time period. “Their lives are so different,” Hobbs said. “It’s cool to see how they lived day in and day out.” Mary Ann O’Farrell, associate English professor, said shows such as “Downton” are popular with audiences

A

because they allow viewers a dramatic glimpse back into history. “To some degree, they do try to stay true to the period,” O’Farrell said. “They let us be nostalgic about our past.” “Downton Abbey” tells the story of the Crawleys, an aristocratic family in post-Edwardian England in the early 20th century, and their servants. It has won six Primetime Emmys, a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series and has been nominated for several more awards. The fan reception of the program has been significant. The season three premiere alone drew 7.9 million viewers to PBS, according to the Huffington Post— four times the average rating for any PBS primetime program. What truly seems to draw people into the world of “Downton Abbey” is something called the closeness, or distance factor. “I would say ‘Downton Abbey’ is comfort TV,” O’Farrell said. “It allows us to think about modern day problems with some distance. The characters are enough like us to where we can relate, but distant enough to where we’re not overly anxious or stressed when thinking about the issues it brings up.” “Downton Abbey” is not the first period piece to be popular among audiences. Movies such as “Pride &

Prejudice” and mini series featured by PBS’s Masterpiece Classics segment have also gained wide renown among viewers in the past. “It’s like TV of manners,” O’Farrell said. “It lets us think about how people behaved back then, with a beautiful set, clothes and fine dining.” O’Farrell said the period piece trend functions in a sort of cycle, gaining and losing popularity again and again over time. “This is a recurring theme,” O’Farrell said. “This

trend tends to take a hiatus, and then it comes back.” “Downton Abbey” is still going strong, with 6.6 million viewers tuning in to watch the Crawley family on Super Bowl Sunday, according to the Nielson ratings – far outstripping the second-mostwatched show of the night, “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” by about four million. The season is scheduled to wrap up on Sunday, Feb. 17 with a 90-minute special.

back into the game, we just didn’t finish. This was a big game for both teams so that’s where the intensity came from.” Defensively, A&M was forced to find ways to contain Missouri’s star-studded backcourt. Freshman guard Alex Caruso made consistent contributions in disrupting a usually fluid Tiger offense, pressuring passing lanes and tipping steals to teammates. Harris, though, was tasked with containing Missouri point guard and Wooden Award candidate Phil Pressey. Harris held him to just 13 points and four assists, three under his season average. Conversely, the Aggies fashioned an imposing 17 assists against the Tigers, distributing the ball to multiple key players. Knocking off their first ranked opponent of the season, A&M improves to 14-8 overall and 4-5 in the Southeastern Conference. Missouri drops to 16-6 on the year and 5-4 in the SEC. With only nine regular season games remaining, the Aggies’ sense of urgency showed against the Tigers. Missing out on the NCAA Tournament in Kennedy’s first season in 2012, A&M hopes to squeeze their way into this year’s Big Dance. “We realized that we needed to start making a run now,” Elston said following the win. “We’re practicing harder, we’re playing harder. It’s just a great win and we’re going to build off it.”

airtime, Electronic and Dance categories, of which George said he believes Avicii will walk away with the Grammy. “’Levels’ will win best dance recording,” George said. ‘It’s one of the best songs ever produced.” The Grammy Awards came into being in the 1950s as a music industry alternative to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Since its inception, thousands of the small golden trophies — a gramophone, in recognition of Thomas Edison’s invention — have been awarded, from only 20 at the very first awards show in 1959, to last year’s 78. Presenters at this year’s ceremony include Beyoncé, Kaley Cuoco, Ellen Degeneres, Neil Patrick Harris and Hunter Hayes. Several artists will also take the main stage for live performances, including Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Sting, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Justin Timberlake and The Black Keys. “I’m looking forward to seeing Kelly Clarkson perform the most,” said junior English major Hayley Ellisor. “Not only do I like her music and personality, but I also love that she’s a Texas girl and I like to see an American success story being represented on the big stage like that.” There will be plenty of American as well as international success stories taking the stage on Sunday. Tune in to see awards given out for artistic contributions around the world to the people who have made dance and have kept us listening.

industry comes from a deep-seeded tradition of agriculture that her great-great grandfather planted long ago. He emigrated from Slovakia to the U.S. right before the first World War and began farming in Florida. The farming business was passed down through the generations to Duda’s father. “He formed the company and it’s now in three states including Texas and California,” Duda said. “We have the biggest family-owned produce company.” Duda isn’t the first member of her family to participate in the Watermelon Queen competitions. Eight years ago, her older sister Stephanie Reissner took home the Texas title as well as the national title. “We have a family legacy now,” Duda said. “I have big shoes to fill.” Reissner is very supportive of her little sister and has tried to provide Duda with encouragement and insight. “The best advice I could ever give her is to be herself,” Reissner said. “She is well-spoken, fun, smart, sincere and beautiful inside and out. I encouraged her to prepare by researching current issues facing the watermelon industry. I quizzed her with questions I know the judges like to ask in the interviews and I helped her practice her speech. Ultimately, she won because of who she is.”

Reissner is also very hopeful that Duda will take home the national crown. “Now I am anxious to watch her shine at the national competition,” Reissner said. The family ties to the watermelon industry even go beyond their participation in the competition. Duda and Reissner’s mother, Barbara Duda is the Texas Watermelon Association Secretary and Queen Coordinator. Barbara arranges trips for the queen, chaperones events and has the opportunity to witness the impact of the queen first hand. “The Texas Watermelon Queen travels throughout the year, but mostly in the summer when the fruit is in season here,” Barbara said. “Each queen works at many in-store promotions throughout the state and sometimes travels out of the state to help out with other promotions or events that feature watermelon.” The queen also has two trips that she goes on every year as a spokesperson — to the Produce Marketing Association Convention and the United Fresh March on Washington Public Policy Conference — where they help lobby for issues that affect the association and the produce industry.
