Since the 1970s, the Alabama men’s basketball team has been one of the top teams in the Southeastern Conference. Just like most sports at the In fact, Alabama trails only University of Alabama, the the Kentucky Wildcats in wins, men’s basketball team has a SEC tournament titles and SEC rich tradition and a storied regular season titles. Former Alabama players have history.

gone to the NBA and accounted for nine NBA Championships, six All-Star Game selections, six All-Defensive Team honors and countless other professional awards. But to truly understand the history of Alabama basketball, you have to go back a little more than 40 years.

It all started in 1968 when legendary football coach Paul “Bear” Bryant called Kentucky basketball coach Adolph Rupp looking for someone to help turn Alabama’s basketball program around. Rupp recommended C.M. Newton, and in 1969, Newton was hired.

In 12 seasons with the Tide, Newton led Alabama to a 211113 record. During his tenure, he led the Tide to four NIT tournaments and two NCAA tournaments. Alabama won three consecutive SEC titles from 1974-1976 under Newton. “It was a really great

experience for me,” Newton said. “Coach Bryant was winning national championships in football and we were winning and getting national attention in the basketball program.”

Student was talented Council approves Sunday sales for all businesses artist, friends say By Amanda Sams Senior Staff Reporter Ricky David Norris, III, a senior majoring in English from Birmingham, died early Saturday morning of unknown causes. His friends said he was a talented musician and writer, and his presence will be missed on campus. “He was like the connecting thread between everyone in our group of friends,” said his best friend of nine years, Carter Glascock. “He was such an influential guy that everyone gravitated toward him. He was a genius—a tremendous writer and performer, and this is a devastating loss for the state of Alabama as a whole, I think.” Glascock, a UA alumnus, said Norris, who was also known to his friends as Tripp, stood for honesty and couldn’t handle being around people who were disingenuous with him. “Rick was an artist in the truest sense of the word,” Glascock le this

Tuesday night, the Tuscaloosa City Council unanimously decided to amend the section of the Tuscaloosa city code to provide for the sale of alcohol on Sunday. The council did not place any restrictions on what locations

can sell alcohol on Sundays, meaning every business that can sell alcohol on any other day can sell alcohol between noon and 9:30 p.m. on Sunday. That includes bars, restaurants and liquor stores. “The modification tonight would include the new Sunday sales and ensure that the law takes into consideration the Monday hours,” said Tim

He was an entertainer 24/7 — a writer, dancer, singer and allaround showman. He was the funniest and most inspirational person I’ve ever known. “Tripp had the quickest wit of any of our friends,” Hicks said. “He was the authority on what was funny. You always sought his approval to find out if your joke was funny or not. If it wasn’t, he sure would let you know.” Because people thought Norris was so funny, Hicks said, he demanded you rise to the occasion and be just as funny as he was, as long as

He would joke that he was not handsome but ‘hairsome.’ “I miss his grin most of all,” Glascock said. “He had this smile that just made you feel so good deep down inside.

between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and noon and after the hours of 9:30 p.m.,” the ordinance said. The exception to this stipulation on Sundays is when it falls on New Year’s Eve. Then the hours are extended to 2 a.m. The amendment allows a 15-minute window for consumption on the premises. This means that on New Year’s Day you can order alcohol until 1:45 a.m. and you have until 2 a.m. to consume it. Bethany Pack, a senior majoring in communication studies, said she feels Sunday alcohol sales are good for the city of Tuscaloosa as she takes into consideration the profit that can be made from restaurants. “As Tuscaloosa is a growing and changing city, the extra revenue from these sales could help in some ways,” she said. Pack said she did not notice the financial impact Sunday sales could have on the city until she thought about the Super Bowl. “The people at home could have had their alcohol they bought either Friday or Saturday, “ she said. “But, the people that watched the game at places like Buffalo Wild Wings could have brought a lot of businesses to those places if they could have purchased alcohol.”

Wilson seeks to boost involvement as VP By William Evans Senior Staff Reporter David Wilson loves to socialize. Wilson will balance between students’ concerns and the duties of his office if elected to be the Student Government Association’s vice president of student affairs in the upcoming SGA election. The stewardship of older students influenced his decision to undertake a meaningful college career in the SGA, he said. “When a door is closed, it’s important to have someone to show you the way to another door to open,” he said. If elected, Wilson said he would encourage upperclassmen to connect freshmen with outlets of student involvement available on campus if their first pick does not pan out. The freshman year experience is a defining moment for students at the University, he said. “The key is doing something different from the past 18

being uniquely yourself. “Ever since I’ve known Tripp, he always went through little phases,” said Pat Zicarelli, a junior majoring in marketing. “You could tell what music he was listening to or what author he was reading by how he dressed, because he would adapt to it. He would go from the skater look, to dressing super neat, and for at least three months, the man never wore shoes. He always kept the same personality, but he would change his style.” Zicarelli said Norris found his muse when he got to college, and the short stories he wrote were amazing. “In high school, Tripp said the only way he could make it to school feeling all right was by smoking a cigarette and listening to Mozart,” Zicarelli

“If people are not engaged, then we need to find a way to help them become engaged.” — David Wilson years,” he said. “If people are not engaged, then we need to find a way to help them become engaged.” Campus life should be seen as an opportunity for students to exit their comfort zones and bring their ideas into fruition, he said. “I know what it feels like to feel that you’re a part of the campus,” he said. “To feel like the campus is your home, to be relaxed and at ease and to be safe but passionate and excited. The campus is an adventure and a safe place.” For SGA members in particular, Wilson said he wants to initiate ‘ground-up’ projects that arise from within the SGA and are coordinated by its members, such as concerts and events that can benefit the student body. He said tackling campuswide issues such as park-

ing, housing and residential Internet quality would require the assistance of departments staffed by University officials, which he would collaborate with upon assuming office if elected. Information concerning University calendar events, athletic events and campus maps could be more easily searched with the introduction of a new mobile application for smartphones, he said. He also plans to work with the information technology department to bring the mobile application to UA students. Wilson said he wants to strengthen the efforts of the Freshmen Mentoring Program that adjusts students to the demands and opportunities of college life, he said. He will also encourage the introduction of new dining opportunities to be opened on campus.

“He was always a riot no matter what. He could make anyone laugh.” — Jesi Johnson said. “He liked independent films and all kinds of music ranging from metal to country, but he made it a point to be into things no one else was. He wrote about everything, but he was big into writing short stories about crime.” Jesi Johnson, a UA alumna who graduated with a degree in psychology, said Norris was easy to get to know because he was so open with who he was. “He was really a deep and complex character,” Johnson said. “He could be so cynical and offensive and rude, but then he could be giddy and sweet and goofy. And he was always a riot no matter what. He could make anyone laugh.” Johnson said Norris never met a stranger and had more

friends than anyone she has ever met. “They are not just friends that he parties with or talks to occasionally, but close friends that could tell you a million stories about him and really, really loved him, ” she said. “I don’t really know how to describe it, but his presence was really unique and powerful. At shows sometimes he would face the wall while he sang with his back to the audience and his eyes closed. I always thought that was cool and really indicative of his personality.” Visitation will be held today at Mountain Brook Community Church from noon to 1:30 p.m. Services will follow at 2 p.m.

David Wilson, a sophomore, is running for vice president of student affairs.

Student organization seating in Bryant-Denny Stadium should be awarded to organizations on the basis of merit, he said. “The student organization seating should be as fair as possible,” he said. “It needs to be as diverse as possible […] but I don’t believe in handouts.” The awarding of sections of student organization seating has improved under the current SGA administration, and he added he wants to draw a clear distinction between the responsibilities of the SGA and student organizations. Although student organizations should rely upon The SOURCE, the coordinating body for student organizations, for self-improvement, the SGA should be vigilant to respond to the calls of student organizations to bring about positive changes to campus life, he said. “Student government should be there to advocate for changes that when changed will better help student organizations to thrive and do their job,” he said.

the Southeastern Conference. “They came out with great energy in the second half, got some shots to fall and it kind of snowballed on us from there,” said head coach Anthony Grant, whose team was tied with the Gators at halftime. “I didn’t feel like we handled adversity very well as a team when it hit tonight. That’s a lesson for us to learn.” Against the Gators, Alabama shot only 39 percent from the field, making 21-of-54 and going 1-for-8 from the three-point line. Florida shot 52 percent from the field and 38 percent from behind the arc. Scoring leaders for the Tide were Trevor Releford with 17 and Tony Mitchell with 14. For Florida, seniors Vernon Macklin and Chandler Parsons each had 19 points on senior night in Gainesville.

Going into halftime, Alabama and Florida were tied at 30. Florida got the last shot off, a three, with about 15 seconds left to tie it up. The Gators were not able to hit any threes early, going 0-for10 until Kenny Boynton hit two in a row. The Tide went 0-for-2 on 3-pointers in the first half and shot 55 percent from the field. From the field, the Gators shot 37 percent. Despite the differences, the score was even at 30. Mitchell led the Tide’s offense with eight points in the first half, while Florida’s Chandler Parsons and Alex Tyus led the Gators with eight each. Both of those Gator players had five rebounds apiece as well. Florida led in rebounds for the first half with 17 to Alabama’s 14. To start the second half, the Gators came out hitting two early 3-pointers. Halfway through the second half, Alabama’s inability to make shots put the Tide in a hole.

The hole only got deeper as the Tide failed to capitalize on its possessions. The Gators ran away with the score, with leads in double digits, and the Tide couldn’t make its comeback. With its win, Florida takes at least a share in the SEC regularseason title, with a 12-3 conference record, while Alabama falls to an 11-4 SEC record. The Tide also stays on the cusp of the NCAA tournament bubble with an overall 19-10 record. Alabama returns home for its last regular-season game Saturday, taking on the Georgia Bulldogs. The Tide is 15-0 in Coleman Coliseum, and after two straight losses, Alabama will look to end on a positive note. Tipoff is at 12:30 p.m. “This is a learning experience for us,” Grant said. “One that’s a hard lesson for all of us, myself, our players. It’s a lesson that will allow us to make ourselves better and make our program stronger as we move forward.”

Time to fight back, show you care

Editor • Tray Smith

By John Anselmo

Just six days from now, students here at the Capstone will determine whether or not they want to lay a foundation. Students will have a chance to form a solid ground, taking the first steps towards a truly unified UA community. As you may have figured, I’m referring to the upcoming Student Government Association elections. I know many of my fellow students do not believe these elections have any bearing on their UA career. I have some news for those doubters. It has a lot to do with your UA career. The Capstone Creed is a pledge made by each incoming freshman class. The creed reads as follows: “As a member of the University of Alabama community, I will pursue knowledge; act with fairness, honesty, and respect; foster individual and civic responsibility; and strive for excellence.” This creed embodies the ideals of people who see a bright future for their alma mater, state and nation. Unfortunately, not all members of the UA community accept this creed. A secret group has formed a tightly knit, highly efficient machine, whose influence is far reaching on our campus and holds beliefs contrary to the ideals of the creed. Unwarranted entitlement, deception and exclusion are among the hallmarks of this group. A free and open community is inherently opposed to secret societies and their proceedings. The new ban on chalking and stickers, which directly affects grassroots candidates running

“Yes. I believe every vote matters. To be able to have a say in who I want to win is my opportunity to help the University.” — Katerina Pena, freshman, advertising

for SGA offices, and the lack of debates sponsored by affiliated organizations are examples of the group’s reach. Sure, they don’t want challenge; who can rationally argue for exclusion and elitism? The Capstone has made great strides in loosening the grasps of control this group wields. In these SGA elections, each and every student has a chance to continue freeing itself from these grasps of exclusion and injustice. The control the so-called “machine” holds has done nothing but tarnish our great flagship University and hold back its aspiring students. We simply cannot afford to throw this opportunity away or lessen the implications of these elections. Given the economic perils of the day, we need to take seriously every opportunity to have our concerns and voices heard. Many of our friends and classmates here at the University struggle and fight everyday just to maintain their place in the UA community. We cannot let their concerns fall on ears that serve a self-nominated few on campus. We need to have these conversations about the future of this university. The future of this university has everything to do with our futures, and the legacy we leave will follow us step by step no matter how far we roam from Tuscaloosa. Talk with your friends and classmates about these upcoming elections. And continue the conversations after March 8. Go to the debates, contact candidates and take an active role in the conversation. It’s your future, it’s

your school. Years from now, looking at your diploma on the wall, you will remember the fun times and the dreams that education enabled you to fulfill. Sure, that will feel great. Think how you will feel knowing you were part of making your alma mater an even better place for your children and your friends’ children. Think of the legacy you can leave, and how it will help those who follow us at The Capstone fulfill their greatest dreams. Free yourself from apathy, as apathy is a great boon to the establishment. Our first president and founding father George Washington said, “Liberty, when it takes root, is a plant of rapid growth.” Take the liberty to discuss the issues we face as a UA community; do not let the problems be covered up by those who choose to overlook them and want them hidden. The conversations will grow, and can only lead us to a better university. Each and every one of us is a member of this community and each of our opinions has true value. Do not let your voice and opinions be quelled. Do not let anyone tell you that your vote does not matter, and that we must accept the status quo. The road that leads to a better UA community starts with you. Now, it is in your power to begin the journey. John Anselmo is a senior majoring in economics. His column runs biweekly on Wednesdays.

Next Monday, students will go to the polls to elect Student Government Association leaders for the next year. While the presidential campaign between Nancy Hogan and Grant Cochran has gotten the most attention, students can cast more than just a presidential vote. Dozens of students are vying to represent their colleges in the Student Senate. Mostly freshman and sophomores, many of these candidates bring the fresh energy and new ideas we need to truly renew student government. With the new constitution that was ratified last month taking effect on inauguration day, the Student Senate will finally be its own, independent branch of government. The institution will have the authority to compel the executive branch to take action towards resolving the issues the student body struggles with everyday. Senators will also be able to work on their own projects and initiatives. What are these initiatives? They are plans to make the University’s Wi-Fi system more reliable and consistent. In a 21st Century academic environment, reliable Internet access is essential both in class and in the dorms. Yet, the UA wireless system is notoriously unreliable and incapable of supporting the growing student body. We must work with the administration and other students within the SGA to address these deficiencies. They are plans to place ACT card readers outside of Hardaway and Houser Halls, so that engineering students can have access to their labs 24/7. They are plans to bring more groups into the student organization seating process, so that we can continue to give more students the opportunity to spend game day with the groups with which they have become most involved. Some candidates have even campaigned on simple, yet unconventional ideas like bringing Dippin’ Dots vendors to campus. Having senators who will work on these issues and truly take advantage of their resources as elected members of the SGA can lead to a better campus environment for all Alabama students. As a senator for the past year from the College of Engineering who is running for reelection, I have learned that the SGA truly does have the capacity to bring about changes on campus. However, the Student Senate will only reach its maximum potential when we have active representation from every college. This means senators who will reach out to students, visit their organizations, and help them take advantage of the many resources the SGA offers. So, as you read about SGA elections in this newspaper, go to debates and decide whether or not to join the multitude of campaign Facebook groups that are popping up, think about who you want to represent you and your college in the newly empowered Student Senate. Talk to the candidates, visit their groups or websites, and read their flyers. The changes coming to the Student Senate this year make this one of the most important senate elections in campus history. Remember, your vote for your senator is important. By taking an active roll in helping elect good candidates to serve in this institution, you can play an important role in helping the institution serve the student body more effectively. And by getting involved in Student Senate elections next week, you can ensure your voice will be heard for the next year.

Ryan Flamerich is a sophomore majoring in chemical engineering who serves in the SGA Senate.

A defensive mentality: save it for sports By Wesley Vaughn

Nick Saban’s football team and Anthony Grant’s basketball team pride themselves on tough defense. Both buy into a defensive mentality that opposing teams fear and announcers drool over. In sports, holding an opponent to as few points as possible is vital to winning. In life though, a mindset of denying the progress of others for perceived self-protection obstructs the positive evolvement of society. Our university has seemingly bought into the same defensive mentality of our sports teams when it comes to this progress. Last week, The Crimson White published the racial outlook of the Honors College, which called attention to a lack

of African-American enrollment relative to the percentage enrolled in the University. I do not know the reason for this discrepancy or how to solve it, but I do know how to respond to it. And, unfortunately, the Honors College denied the need for reevaluation – again. When I wrote a column in the fall warning the Honors College Assembly to tread lightly with its potential power, some members instantly defended the HCA instead of considering it as constructive criticism and analysis. The same response occurred again last week when one member ignorantly responded by writing, “The Honors College should not have to chase students around, begging them to enroll.” No,

it should not beg students to enroll. It should educate students about the Honors College and make sure that students of all backgrounds feel comfortable within Nott Hall. Denying a potential problem is just as moronic as ignoring a known problem. Last week also saw Thomas Friedman visit campus to talk about globalization, Middle Eastern politics and energy policy. After making sure his paycheck was in the mail, he called it a “travesty” that our University lacked even one solar panel. Thank goodness he never saw ten Hoor’s newly tarred roof; a sad fact since energy policy analysts triumph the energy savings of white roofs. But I am sure that the University has some random statistics that rank us highly

among other universities for energy consumption. They always do. Instead of admitting work has to be done, we love to emphasize how far we have come – or refuse to speak on the matter. Take the recent racial incident as an example. President Witt’s campus-wide e-mail created the public controversy, but the official response was taken behind closed doors. For a university with one of the best public relations schools in the nation – which teaches complete transparency in most, if not all, instances – this is painfully ironic. Maybe I have it all wrong. Maybe students are supposed to just pay for the rising costs of tuition, graduate in four years with the continually lowering maximum semester credits, deal with the campus

issues every other past UA student body has faced, try to enact change, fail, become frustrated and apathetic, quit trying and graduate. Yeah, that sounds about right. That’s what a great defense does: it frustrates the offense. A Robert Lester interception or a JaMychal Green block can demoralize an opponent and alter his future game plan. A physical or rhetorical barrier to campus change does exactly the same. Though our football and basketball team prides themselves on tough defense, that mentality is for the football field and basketball court, not for campus.

a $30,000 vehicle – the same price as one of those foreignmade luxury cars Smith jabs at), and sleeping past lunch in a frat house? It’s about degrading those that enter your tax bracket by actually doing something? There is quite a lot wrong with Smith’s view of the world and how this University is run. It absolutely does not matter how long your family has had money, if it does at all. Yes, healthy donations to our school are great, but having your name on a building

doesn’t make you better than anybody else. What makes you stand out in this day and age is by doing everything Tray rants against; working hard, accomplishing goals, and providing a better life for those after you. Loafing all day does not lead to success; it’s a way to be forgotten. I can only hope that Smith and anyone else who share his viewpoints (be there any) one day make such a realization.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Old money vs. new money, are we really going there? By Keith Edwards Are we as a student body just looking for fights to pick now? As if racial tensions and greek versus independent rivalries weren’t enough for students to handle, Tray Smith is now, rather distastefully, trying to tear a divide between new and old money students. Can he honestly be serious? To begin, all of Smith’s points are exaggerated, bitter or even work against him. He denounces people who have worked for what they earned

and taunts them for having high academic standings and leadership experiences under their belts. Maybe I’m biased. After all, I’m one of the terrible out-of-state people who knocked off a year of college in high school. While my family is by no means rich, I’ve witnessed my parents work hard enough to move from renting a small house to owning a home in Brentwood. I’ve seen with my own eyes how diligence in study and work leads to success and reward. Somehow, Smith sees this

as a bad thing. His article is filled with ignorance, laziness and general incompetence. He instead suggests that the more fulfilling lifestyle is “not as much finding a job as it is avoiding a death tax hike.” Really? You would rather have your father die and leave you a fat check than actually make a name for yourself and say that you were able to accomplish something in life? That’s what old money is all about, doing nothing but driving a late model Escalade (which, keep in mind, is still

James sets junior world record By Mike Albanese Contributing Writer The No. 17 Alabama men’s track and field squad finished fourth at the SEC Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, Ark., Feb. 25-27, the best finish for the Crimson Tide since 2002. Florida came away with the top spot, followed by Arkansas and LSU. During the weekend, the Tide put together an overall impressive performance, with three individual champions, world records and personal bests to achieve its best finish in nine years. “They stepped up, especially Sunday, and delivered like I knew they could,” head coach Harvey Glance said. “I’m very proud of them. They did a wonderful job.” The Tide took home the top spot in the 400 and 800 meters as well as the distance medley relay. In the 400 meters, sophomore Kirani James blazed through the track to post a time of 44.80. Already qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championships, his time set a new junior world record. Senior Fred Samoei, who is also qualified for the NCAA Championships, won the 800 meters with an impressive time

TRADITION Continued from page 1

Newton’s biggest accomplishment was integrating Alabama athletics. In 1969, Newton signed Wendell Hudson, making him Alabama’s first black scholarship athlete. “Wendell was the key because if he doesn’t succeed then none of the rest of [integrating] happens, in my opinion,” Newton said. “It wouldn’t have happened in football or basketball without Wendell. He helped recruit black players for the basketball and the football team.” Hudson said, “The world was a lot different in 1969, and four or five years before I was being recruited, there was the situation with Governor Wallace in front of Foster Auditorium trying to stop integration. At 18 years old, I didn’t think about it from a historical standpoint. I was just looking at it as a place to come play basketball, not to integrate Alabama athletics. It was a conscious decision by Coach Newton and his staff, but at the end of the day it was about playing basketball and winning.” In 1981, Newton left the Tide to become assistant commissioner of the SEC, leaving Winfrey “Wimp” Sanderson to coach the team. With Newton laying the foundation, Sanderson took the program to another level, win-

of 1:49.68. In addition to finishing first, the distance medley relay squad posted the fastest time recorded at an SEC indoor meet. The squad, made up of Samoei, seniors Joel Rop and Julius Bor and junior Terrell Mickens ran to a time of 9:39.06, which is also the sixth fastest time in school history. Competing in one of the toughest conferences in America is no easy task. Heading into the championships, Glance said he hoped his team finished in the middle of the pack and had a respectable performance. “I knew going in it was going to be tough, but they performed to their expectations and finished fourth,” Glance said. Along with its first-place finishes, the Tide posted numerous other impressive performances. The mile run saw seniors Emmanuel and Julius Bor finish third and fourth with times of 4:07.80 and 4:08.09. In both the 3,000-meter and the high jump, Alabama had two competitors in the top 10. Emmanuel Bor finish third in the 3,000-meter with a time of 8:02.07 and junior Carison Kemei ran to a seventh-place finish with a time of 8:13.81. Kemei also posted a fourthning four SEC titles. He led the Tide to one NIT tournament and 10 NCAA tournaments, including six trips to the Sweet 16. Sanderson was also a master recruiter, landing players such as Robert Horry, Derrick McKey and Latrell Sprewell. He finished his career with a 276-119 record before off-the-court issues forced him to retire. After Sanderson, David Hobbs was asked to step in and coach the team. He continued the team’s winning ways, leading them to three NCAA tournament berths and recruited stars like Antonio McDyess. Mark Gottfried was next in line to be the headman for the Tide. During his time as head coach, he led Alabama to three NIT tournaments and five NCAA tournaments, making it all the way to the Elite Eight in the 2003-04 seasons. Gottfried recruited players like Richard Hendrix and Ronald Steele. Steele showed promise early in his career, but after multiple knee injuries he could no longer contribute like he did his first couple seasons at the University. Gottfried resigned midway through the 2008-09 season. With Gottfried leaving, Alabama’s athletic director needed a big-name hire, so the program went out and got head coach Anthony Grant from Virginia Commonwealth.



UA Athletics Sophomore Kirani James competes at last yearʼs Alabama relays. James broke a junior world record in the 400m at the SEC Indoor Championships this weekend. Alabama finished fourth. place finish in the 5,000 meter with a time of 14:08.04. In the high jump, junior Tyler Campbell posted a personal best with a jump of 7’ 1/2”, which earned him third, and freshman Jonathan Reid finished tied for seventh with a

jump of 6’ 9”. Rounding out the weekend for the Tide, senior Michael Hughes finished fifth in heptathlon. As Alabama heads forward in the season working toward the NCAA Indoor Championships, George Linn created the first bit of Alabama basketball lore by sinking a 84foot, 11-inch shot in Foster Auditorium in 1955. Since then, the Crimson Tide has earned the ranks of second in the SEC in wins and conference championships.

its focus is becoming a top-tier program on the national level. Glance said his team will aim to solidify its distance medley relay squad’s place in the NCAA Indoor Championships. If they do, Glance said, “We’re a top-10 program.”



Bryant Museum Grant has been the head coach since 2009 and has shown a lot of promise in his short tenure at the Capstone. In just his second season, Grant has the Tide back near the top of the SEC again, something that has been lost the last few years. Despite having success early in his career, Grant has stayed humbled and thankful to those who came before him. “One of the big reasons I was attracted here was because of the history and tradition of Alabama basketball,” Grant said. “It has a rich history, and if you go back to the days of C.M. Newton and Wimp Sanderson, they had a lot of great players,

great teams and a lot of history here. There is definitely a passion for basketball here, and you can see that through the number of sellouts and the support the people have showed us this year.” Grant also said he looks forward to the challenge of continuing to build the program. “We have seen the passion that people have for basketball here,” Grant said. “I am excited about having the opportunity to build our program. I think we have laid somewhat of a foundation with what we have been able to accomplish this year. Now we just have to continue to work to build the program.”

Doc Justice applications due

Page 6 • Wednesday, March 2, 2011 Editor • Kelsey Stein

By Alex Cohen Staff Reporter

UA students, especially those from Alabama, probably know something about injustice in a historical context. After all, the state’s past is riddled with Civil Rights failures and triumphs. But in recent years, the spotlight has dimmed. How can passionate students foster social justice and keep it relevant in the new decade? Documenting Justice, an initiative of the University’s Center for Ethics and Social Responsibility, may be the answer. The yearlong class offers students the opportunity to investigate social justice issues in Alabama and around the world through documentary films. “It’s really an interdisciplinary documentary filmmaking course,” said Andy Grace, director of Documenting Ju st i c e . “ I n t e r d i s c i p l i n a r y CW File because I think my students Andrew Grace, Director of Documenting Justice and Rachel Morgan, lead programmer of the Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival, speak to the should be well-versed in audience before the 4th Annual Documenting Justice screening on Tuesday night. humanitarian disciplines.” Grace said. “The press is The 2011-2012 class of fiction works.
