UI opposes Israeli academic boycott AAU says academic boycott violates academic freedom BY STEFFIE DRUCKER STAFF WRITER

Members of the American Studies Association, an organization devoted to the studies of American culture and history, voted to endorse participation in a boycott of Israeli academic institutions in late December. But Chancellor Phyllis Wise, University President Robert Easter and other University officials have expressed their opposition of the academic boycott. The University is an institutional member of a different aca-

attacks on academic freedom.” Illini Hillel was quick to release a statement in support of the University’s stance. “We see ourselves as a partner of the University, and academic freedom is crucial for the University to function,” said Erez Cohen, executive director of Illini Hillel. “No one is allowed to tell academic institutions which universities they can and can’t work with.” Cohen said Hillel will defi nitely be dealing with the subject during the spring semester but that no programs had been planned yet, as the programs coordinator was still in Israel. Ahmad Hamdan, president of the University chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine and junior in LAS, said the campus

demic organization, the Association of American Universities, which opposes the ASA boycott. In a statement released Dec. 27, leaders of the University of Illinois said they endorse the statement released by the AAU, which states, “Any such boycott of academic institutions directly violates academic freedom ... It is a principle that should not be abridged by political considerations. American colleges and universities, as well as like institutions elsewhere, must stand as the first line of defense against

The resolution was then forwarded to the National Council and was endorsed by 66 percent of the 1,200 Association members in early December. According to a statement on its website, “The resolution is in solidarity with scholars and students deprived of their academic freedom and it aspires to enlarge that freedom for all, including Palestinians.” The American Association of University Professors, another organization of higher education, also released a statement opposing the ASA’s boycott. “The AAUP, as an organization, neither supports nor opposes Israeli government or Palestinian policies, although many

TO OUR READERS: has a new name and look today. It’s now The Daily Illini calendar — but it’s still your one-stop shop for the most relevant, up-to-date information on everything that’s going on in and around the Champaign-Urbana area. With the calendar under The Daily Illini family, we’re able to reach a broader audience with a wide variety of interests. Now, you’ll see listings for speakers and other news events on campus and in the community and, of course, we’re still keeping our longstanding arts and entertainment listings. It’s a work in progress. But one thing’s certain: It’s a social calendar. We invite you to contribute to the discussion by submitting events you think could draw a crowd. This is your site. This is your C-U.


udging by the number of activities held this week on campus in honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a day doesn’t seem long enough to celebrate the extensive achievements and legacy of MLK Jr.’s life. From Jan. 17 to Jan. 25, the Commemorative MLK Jr. Committee hopes to encourage students and community members to view the messages of Dr. King as a continuing movement. While time has passed and conditions have changed, co-chairs Otis Noble III and Anthony Fontana believe there is much work to be done in the Champaign-Urbana community. Through breakfast celebrations, volunteer opportunities, panel discussions, films and a first-time poverty simulation, everyone is welcome to take part in the ongoing movement for “equality and justice for all.”

organization has not yet taken a stance condemning or condoning the ASA boycott. “We’re more interested in what our government is doing and what our government is supporting over there,” he said. “I think it’s healthy to have opposing viewpoints on such boycotts so it can stimulate conversation ... and so people can draw their own conclusions. Our primary focus is to inform the campus of our government’s intervention in the issue, or lack thereof, and their role in spreading oppression in the middle east and Palestine.” The ASA Executive Committee was asked to consider a resolution from the Academic and Community Activism Caucus of the association about a year ago.

Alumni closing technical literacy online program » gap » » »with » start-up » » » » » » »


After two years of projects and couch surfing, University alumna Dave Paola, a 2010 graduate from the College of Engineering, founded a start-up named Bloc with fellow alumna Roshan Choxi. Bloc is a 12-week online apprenticeship that takes a one-on-one virtual approach to teaching students to write code. “I took a road trip in the summer after I graduated, and I landed in San Francisco,” Paola said. “While I was couch surfing, I was working on various websites. I got a job as a software engineer in March of 2011, I spent almost a year there, and then roughly around January of 2012 is when we started Bloc.” The inspiration, Paola said, arose from an education gap he noticed between those who are technically literate and those who aren’t.

“If you look at it through the lens of literacy, it’s a little bit like actual literacy,” he said. “Before everyone could read and write, there were these specialized people called scribes. If you wanted something written down or read to you, you went to the scribe because the scribe was literate. When everyone could read and write, information exploded. When you think about what a programmer is, it’s kind of like a scribe.” Paola said expanding technical literacy will close the gap. “When everyone is able to build things themselves and interact with software in a really meaningful way, clearly that will benefit society,” he said. Jarod Reid, a Bloc mentor who instructs students via webcam, said the flexibility the company provides sets it apart from the traditional classroom setting. “Being able to have that one-

on-one time to study, as opposed to being in the classroom, say a student says, ‘There is something happening at my job, I just can’t show up tonight, can we do something tomorrow?’ That allows me to be very flexible and say, ‘Yeah, we can do it tomorrow. Let’s set up a time,’” Reid said. In addition to flexibility, Reid finds that stronger mentor-student relationships promote better student growth. “It also allows you to build a bond with the people you’re instructing because every instructor, every session, is a one-on-one thing,” Reid said. “You can actually address their needs specifically. Opposed to a generalized curriculum, you can actually tailor the curriculum that Bloc is giving the students, to focus on the needs of the students because every single student has different concerns, different needs.”

Brittany Martin, a Bloc student, can testify to the effectiveness of the one-on-one approach. “As someone who just completed their MBA last summer, I can tell you that Bloc brings out the best things about the classroom,” she said. “Having a mentor that shares your screen and genuinely cares about how you are progressing is amazing. (This approach is) absolutely beneficial. In a typical classroom, you need to make a big effort to get that kind of individual attention. With Bloc, it is a given.” A self-taught coder, Reid said Bloc’s dedication to student progress is what impressed him. “For two years I studied on my own, trying to break into what I wanted to be my career, and I made very little money, so I didn’t have many resources to go to school,” Reid said. “I kind of went through this long period of strug-










gling, and I’ve seen a lot of people do the same, so when I found Bloc, the real drive for me was that they are taking people in similar situations to mine and giving them more of a fighting chance than I felt like I had early on.” This focus on student success over monetary gain is what sets Bloc apart from other companies, Paola said. “We measure our success by the successful outcomes of our students,” he said. “There are a lot of companies that sell access to content, but that’s not what we’re all about, what we’re about is mak-







ing sure our alumni are successful. That’s our number one value. If we were to hang a banner, that’s what it would say.” For Martin, this literacy has proved to be life-altering. “It has opened up a whole new world to me,” she said. “I now love to scan through Hacker News, star projects on Github and attend code meetups to discuss best practices. I’ve had an inner coder inside me the whole time. I just needed a way to bring her out.”

ASA of our members certainly have strong beliefs on one side or the other,” according to the statement. “However, the AAUP does stand in opposition to academic boycotts as a matter of principle.” Despite the reaction that the ASA boycott is receiving, Lonnie Nasatir, regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, doesn’t foresee the boycott having great ripple effects; the ASA only has approximately 5,000 members, and only around twothirds of 1,200 of them voted in favor of the resolution calling for a boycott. “We’ve been very encouraged by the university presidents that have spoken out,” he said. “It has not gotten the momentum that


WASHINGTON — Iran has started suspending some of its uranium enrichment as part of a deal between Tehran and world powers to rein in the nation’s nuclear program in return for the lifting of some economic sanctions, according to an international watchdog. Negotiators for the nations said they will now begin working on a longer-term, more comprehensive agreement. The United States will send Undersecretary Wendy Sherman to meet her counterparts in Geneva on Tuesday to begin talks. “These actions represent the first time in nearly a decade that Iran has verifiably enacted measures to halt progress on its nuclear program, and roll it back in key respects,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement. “Taken together, these concrete actions represent an important step forward.” The International Atomic Energy Agency — the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog — reported that Iran had taken the initial steps it had committed to by Monday’s deadline as part of a joint plan of action between the nations. Iran has halted production of 20 percent enriched uranium; has disabled the centrifuge process used to produce it; has begun diluting its existing stockpile of 20 percent enriched uranium; and has started providing the energy agency with more information about its nuclear capabilities through frequent inspections. In return, the world powers — the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia and China, as well as the European Union — will begin to provide economic relief. That includes suspending implementation of sanctions on petrochemical exports, goods imported for use in the auto industry, gold and other precious metals; freeing up Iranian money to help pay educational costs of Iranians, some of whom are attending U.S. colleges; and beginning to allow Iran access to $4.2 billion in restricted Iranian funds. “This is an important first step, but more work will be needed to fully address the international community’s concerns regarding the exclusively peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear program,” said Catherine Ashton, the European Union’s foreign policy chief,


the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement is hoping for, which is good from our (the ADL’s) perspective.” Nasatir said the ADL is more concerned about why the organization is focusing on Israeli institutions in particular and leaving other countries out of the discussion. “It strikes us as a severe double standard and dangerously one-sided in an attempt to delegitimize Israel,” he said. “It’s appalling that a group would focus on a country that is fiercely democratic, promotes religious and racial diversity within its own universities while there are several other countries that crack down on anyone with a different opinion and there’s no academic freedom.”

Iran, world leaders agree to nuclear deal BY ANITA KUMAR

who has represented the international community in negotiations with Iran. “We aim to start negotiations about a comprehensive solution with Iran in February.” Lawrence Korb, a senior fellow at the left-leaning think tank Center for American Progress, said that during the next six months “it is essential that all parties refrain from provocative actions that could diminish trust and complicate already difficult negotiations.” The administration Monday sent Congress a series of statutory waivers to ease economic sanctions approved by Secretary of State John Kerry; some lawmakers remain skeptical of the deal. President Barack Obama has been lobbying lawmakers not to implement additional sanctions against Iran, which he says could derail the diplomatic efforts. Senior administration officials familiar with the congressional outreach but not authorized to speak publicly said lawmakers were being briefed regularly. Sherman briefed both the Senate and the House leadership and committee chairs last week on the agreement, and more talks are planned both with members and staffers. The House of Representatives already voted for new sanctions against Tehran in July, a measure that has not been taken up in the Senate. The sanctions would not take effect unless the negotiations fail. Obama has threatened to veto a Senate bill calling for additional sanctions, which may already have enough support to override a veto. “Since the Iranian Islamist Revolution in 1979, the U.S. has been hammering the country with economic sanctions,” said A. Cooper Drury, chairman of the political science department at the University of Missouri. “By threatening further sanctions, as Congress is suggesting, or returning sanctions that were in place, we could derail the whole agreement and cause the Iranians to resist further dialogue.” Supporters of the Senate bill — the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013 — argue that the bill will pressure the Iranians to negotiate in good faith or face economic distress. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said last week that he’s in no hurry to bring an Iran sanctions bill up for a vote as long as the negotiations are under way and progress is being made.


Seattle Archdiocese spokesman Greg Magnoni spoke publicly on Jan. 15, about Eastside Catholic's dismissal of vice principal Mark Zmuda, who married his male partner. Magnoni said the decision was the school’s but that the diocese supported it.

Same-sex marriage laws, Catholic doctrine at odds BY LORNET TURNBULL MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE

SEATTLE — In a Philadelphia suburb last month, a gay French and Spanish teacher lost his job at a Catholic prep school after telling school officials he planned to marry his partner. In October, the principal of a Catholic school in Little Rock, Ark., called a lesbian teacher on her wedding day, giving her the choice to quit or be fired. The teacher and her partner of 14 years, who had dined on the principal’s houseboat and considered her a friend, had married in New Mexico. There have been other cases, too, in California and Minnesota, New York and Washington state, where the dismissal last month of Mark Zmuda as vice principal at Eastside Catholic has become a flash point for those challenging the Roman Catholic Church’s stance on issues of sexuality. Catholic doctrine rejects samesex marriage and requires that gays in parish pews remain celibate. And increasingly, as states legalize same-sex marriage, as 17 have, gay employees of Catholic institutions, particularly those who teach and preach, are finding themselves at odds with the doctrinal teachings of the church and morality clauses contained in the contracts they sign. “With marriage equality moving across the country, it was not difficult to predict that this was going to spread,” said Francis DeBernardo, executive director of New Ways Ministry, a national advocacy group for Catholic gays. “I think we’ll see more and more of these, unfortunately,” DeBernardo said. Catholic doctrine holds that marriage is a sacred institution, designed by God with the purpose of perpetuating life, and that homosexual acts are immoral and

contrary to natural law. As a result, according to information from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the bonds and benefits of marriage should be limited to the union of one man and one woman. The church’s position then is that once gay employees marry — at least those charged with taking the teachings of the church to others — they can no longer fulfill their “ministerial” obligations. How such violations are handled by schools and parishes, where most of the terminations across the country tracked by New Ways have occurred, differs from one employer to another and from diocese to diocese. The teacher from the Philadelphia suburb, for example, said his sexual orientation was never a secret and that he and his partner used to attend faculty parties together. In Columbus, Ohio, a teacher was fired after listing her female partner’s name in her mother’s obituary, and in Minnesota, a teacher said she was fired after she indicated on a school evaluation her personal conviction favoring same-sex marriage. Still, employees and experts say policies are seldom equally enforced — the teacher who uses birth control, the organist cohabiting or the divorced principal who remarried without having the first marriage annulled. “Imagine if we couldn’t hire sinners,” quipped one local church official, noting that sin can be forgiven. While employers can’t know whether gays are celibate, just as they can’t know about the use of birth control, a gay marriage removes doubt. “My experience with church officials at all levels, from bishops to school officials, is that they tend not to seek out controversy but respond to it when it comes

up,” DeBernardo said. Word of Zmuda’s marriage reached the highest levels at Eastside Catholic after he suggested a colleague might consider the florist he and his husband had used for their July wedding. The school dismissed him last month at the start of the Christmas break, saying his marriage violated church teachings, which he had promised to uphold when he signed the employee handbook when hired a year and a half earlier. For the school of 935 middle and high school students in Sammamish, the circumstances around Zmuda’s dismissal have proved a public relations challenge. Student protests took Zmuda’s story global, and his young supporters, who describe the fight over gay rights as the civil rights issue of their generation, have launched a movement for change not only within the school but within the church. They acknowledge the church is slow to change, but invoking Pope Francis’ now-famous statement that ends with the question, “Who am I to judge?” they have vowed to keep up the pressure through lobbying and letter-writing, with the ultimate goal of changing the church’s position on issues around sexuality. Corey Sinser, an Eastside Catholic alum who has helped to organize many of the protests, said as young Catholics with more liberal attitudes begin to assume leadership roles in the American Catholic church, the church will begin to reflect that. “For a lot of us, it’s hard to reconcile the church’s continued hard line on such social issues against other, more welcoming aspects of Catholicism,” Sinser said. About 60 percent of American Catholics support same-sex marriage, a rate higher than in the general population, according to

recent polls. And young people who grew up with parents, relatives, teachers and friends who are gay support it at an ever higher rate. Pointing out that the church has changed its position on important social issues as society changed and evolved over the centuries, Sinser said, “I think that’s what you’ll see happen here — eventually the church will have to reflect the sentiments of the church body.” Gays and lesbians are employed, sometimes quite openly, in many different positions in Catholicrun and Catholic-affiliated institutions — from hospitals and schools to colleges and charitable organizations. Some, including teachers, often are required to sign contracts or agreements that include language on how they are to comport themselves in regards to the teachings of the church. So-called morality clauses are generally consistent among institutions, requiring employees to live a lifestyle “compatible with Catholic teaching and moral values” and “exercise professional conduct consistent with Catholic teaching.” Employees at Catholic hospitals and charities usually aren’t asked to sign them; in most cases neither are professors, case workers, secretaries and janitors. Zmuda signed one. And so did Tippi McCullough, the English teacher in Little Rock fired by Mount St. Mary Academy on her wedding day last October. She and her partner of 14 years had planned a vacation to Arizona and decided to take a side trip to New Mexico to marry after samesex marriage became legal there in several counties. “I said to Barbara, maybe it’s possible I’ll lose my job. But honestly, I didn’t think I would,” she said. “I was there 14 years; never in my wildest dreams did I think they would fire me.”

Rare tortoise breeds branded to prevent increasing poacher attacks BY LOUIS SAHAGUN MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE

LOS ANGELES — The booming illegal international wildlife trade forced conservationists to do the unthinkable Tuesday: Brand the golden domes of two of the rarest tortoises on Earth to reduce their black market value by making it easier for authorities to trace them if stolen. “It’s heartbreaking that it’s come to this, but it’s the right thing to do,” Paul Gibbons, managing director of the nonprofit Turtle Conservancy’s Behler Chelonian Center in Ventura County, said as he gently placed a 30-pound adult female ploughshare tortoise on a small table. With a steady hand and an electric engraving tool, he carved an identification code on the high, rounded shell as the creature with weary eyes and gleaming carapace peered calmly into the distance. The tortoise was branded for life, which in her case would be roughly 160 years. “We’ve blemished her natural beauty, so she’s just a number in a system now,” Gibbons said. “No. 7001 MG.” The 2-inch- by-1 {-inch block figures were placed at the top of the turtle’s back, a location chosen to avoid interfering with the expansion of the shell, which grows at the edges. The conservancy’s goal is to mark every one of the estimat-

ed 360 ploughshares in captive breeding programs around the world and the 300 believed to be remaining in the wild. So far, no rare tortoise or turtle with identification markings has turned up in illegal markets monitored by law enforcement authorities, conservationists said. Decades of intense collecting, hunting and habitat destruction have brought that species and dozens of others to the brink of extinction. Now, sanctuaries and zoos are using visible identification marks — shell notches, clipped toenails, paint, laser inscribing, tattoos and engraving — as a tool to fight poaching and dissuade wealthy collectors willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars for critically endangered turtles and tortoises. The shells of two confiscated ploughshare tortoises were engraved at the Singapore Zoo in December. In October, the Turtle Conservancy helped mark the shells of 150 Burmese star tortoises in Myanmar. Keeping rare turtles and tortoises safe, however, will require a level of security that at this point is elusive at best. A week ago, Indonesian officials at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta rescued more than 8,000 baby pig-nosed turtles hidden in suitcases and

believed headed for China and Singapore. In December, Royal Thai Customs officials confiscated a suitcase containing 62 rare radiated tortoises at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport. In November, authorities in a Thai airport discovered 432 protected tortoises and 52 black pond turtles worth about $110,000 in unclaimed luggage arriving from Bangladesh. In March, authorities seized 54 ploughshare tortoises found in the suitcases of two individuals attempting to enter Thailand. Golden coin turtles have been selling for thousands of dollars each since poachers recently started claiming that consuming extracts from the species could cure cancer. The two ploughshare tortoises marked Tuesday were flown in from Taiwan, where they were seized in 2008. The female now known as No. 7001 MG was successfully mated last year with the only male ploughshare tortoise of breeding age outside Madagascar. Five eggs she laid in November are being incubated. They are the first ploughshare tortoise eggs produced in an international conservation program. “We still aren’t sure they are fertile,” Gibbons said. As the rarest tortoise on Earth,


Paul Gibbons, left, with assistance from Armando Jimenez on Jan. 14 uses a drill tool to deface the golden domes of two Plaughshare tortoises in Los Angeles. The shells are defaced to reduce their value on the black market, and the permanent marking also makes it easier for law enforcement authorities to trace them. the ploughshare is highly valued by global animal traffickers and fetches tens of thousands of dollars on the Asian black market, conservationists say. The same could be said for most of the cold-blooded animals at the conservancy, a secret compound of paddocks and aquariums protected by surveillance cameras and electric wire in the foothills of Los Padres National Forest. Although certified by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association, the conservancy is

not open to the public or listed in the phone book. The only visitors are turtle biologists from around the world. Its primary mission is to maintain colonies of threatened and endangered tortoises and freshwater turtles, such as two Sulawesi turtles from Indonesia confiscated at Los Angeles International Airport in February. Other new arrivals include seven Roti Island snake-necked turtles, members of an Indonesian species hunted to near extinction. Then there is Daphne, a 40-year-old female giant Gala-

pagos tortoise looking for a mate. As collection manager for the conservancy, it is Christine Light’s job to pamper egg clutches until they hatch and babies until they are old enough to fend for themselves. “This little fella hatched on Monday,” Light said, holding up an Indian spotted turtle about the size of a 50-cent piece. “Too cute for words, right? “Last year, we had 294 hatchlings from 13 species,” she added with a smile. “Each one of those hatchlings was a little win for our side.”







Tuition increases may make the University unattendable for some


nother year, another tuition hike. But this one may have less bite than usual. Earlier this month, the University’s Board of Trustees proposed a 1.7 percent tuition increase for the incoming Class of 2018, matching the increase from last year. Alongside the possible tuition hike are proposals for a 2.3 percent increase in student fees and 2 percent increase in housing fees, which would apply to all students on the Urbana campus. This would match the tuition increase for the 2013-14 academic year, which was also 1.7 percent. While this diminutive increase may seem to be a positive story, the long-term picture is much less rosy. The cost of tuition continually increases each year, and for many students, a college education has become unaffordable. Understandably, the University does have to account for gut-wrenching cost factors, such as inflation and a lack of money coming in from the state. However, as rising costs put a University of Illinois degree increasingly out of reach for some students — such as those in low-income and underrepresented populations — the question of whether a University of Illinois education is worth the money still looms. There is no question that the University’s prowess in fields such as computer science and engineering, along with high placement rates and starting salaries in these fields, make it hard to argue with paying for these programs. The reputation of the institution, in this case, is just as important as the degree itself. However, a whole bunch of other degrees offered by the University are considerably less economical. But there are still other options available to cost-conscious prospective students. Arguably, many prospective students may seek altemative, cheaper educational resources, like community colleges, to gain the skills and expertise necessary to succeed in their desired field. Furthermore, students bent on graduating with a University of Illinois degree can often knock out most of their general education requirements and lower-level courses at a considerably lower cost via community colleges. Outside of the classroom, students can attain immeasurable experience through internship positions, which often require the pursuit of a college degree but often not a specific college. Although the rate at which the tuition is increasing will remain around the same as last year, tuition is increasing nonetheless. This will allow those from wealthy socioeconomic backgrounds to continue attending the University, but will make it even harder for those from disadvantaged backgrounds to obtain a college education from this school. Even if they do find the resources to attend this University, it is likely they will leave college carrying a large amount of debt. While the tuition increases remain small, at least for now, we wonder how many more of them it will take before a University of Illinois degree just isn’t worth it anymore. In other words, is $50,000 in in-state tuition over four year worth the skills and knowledge we acquire throughout our undergraduate careers, or can similar skills and knowledge be acquired elsewhere for cheaper? Sure, tuition is rising, and, according to the University — considering that state funding has decreased about 23 percent since 2002 — it needs to if the University wants to continue operating as a renowned public land-grant institution. And it will continue to rise in the future as costof-living indices also continue to increase. At first glance, this historically low increase in tuition may be something to shrug off — especially for current students who have their tuitions already locked in. But looking at the broader picture, these increases will accumulate, and it will be left up to students to decide if the cost of today’s degree is really worth the acquired skill set.

Thank you, Illinois State Police, for your winter storm response efforts


uring the winter storm nearly two weeks ago, interstate highways and other roadways went from nearly white-out conditions to impassable. All motorists were told that travel conditions were life-threatening and that if they travel and become stranded, help might not come in because of the below-freezing temperatures. Yet, the Illinois State Police were actively on the roads, responding to calls for help — thousands of them throughout a three-day stretch. Between Sunday and Tuesday, police responded to more than 6,000 incidents, including 3,932 motorist assists, 792 crashes and 534 traffic stops. The sheer number of incidents the Illinois State Police reported to makes their statewide efforts heroic. For most of the year, these men and women are invisible to us. We don’t know their names or much about them. But, we commend their efforts under some of the most extreme conditions the area has seen in years.

Seniors should focus on their college journey, not its end THADDEUS CHATTO Opinions columnist


y high school English teacher was always fond of using the phrase, “coming down the home stretch.� She would use this phrase when we were almost finished with a book. And if I remember correctly, my teacher told me its origins came from horse racing. The horses were “coming down the home stretch� when they were on the last straightaway after the final turn. As a college senior in his final semester, this is the home stretch for myself, as well as many others. I’ve already seen several people on Facebook or Twitter saying this is their “last� something ever. And truth be told, there are going to be many “last� things this semester for us that are graduating. For example, this is our last syllabus week ever. It’s also our last first day of class in the new semester. The list goes on and on of “last� this and “last� that. But it is easy to get lost in the “last� pattern when the end is in sight. I find it similar to the feeling whenever you are getting close to the end of a good book or video game. You can’t wait to see how it ends, so you start rushing through it to see what happens. But when you begin to rush things, you tend to miss the smaller details. So, you go back through and make sure you take it a little slower this time to enjoy the full experience. You make sure every word in the book

is read and every non-player character in the game (NPC for you video game fans) is talked to. Needless to say, you can’t do this in real life. We don’t have the ability to turn back a page to make sure we understood everything. There is no pause or save feature, and if people had the ability to respawn after they died, as they do in video games, I would just assume they were zombies. We’re all living by the same clock, ticking at the same pace. There are no second chances when it comes to moments like these in our lives. When you think of it like that, then it feels like an immsense amount of pressure is put on us to make sure we are making the most of it. I get why this is important for people. It’s surreal to think that as freshmen we thought we had all the time in the world on this campus, but now we’re in our final semester. All of a sudden we don’t have the luxury to say, “Oh, don’t worry, I’ll do that next semester.� To get t he full experience, a sense of urgency and panic kicks in to make sure every moment of our last semester at the University is completely and 100 percent meaningful. You might start hearing friends or peers tell you to make sure you make the most out of your time during these last few months. Live every night as if it is your last because you won’t get another syllabus week in college! We are led to believe that we need to always be doing something special and make sure we’re getting the full college experience because we are young.

There is no excuse to be lazy and relax because we have to hit up Joe’s tonight. Honestly, it’s exhausting to think like that. We are not machines that operate with a limitless supply of energy. We’re humans with many emotions, and we have limits to how much we can do. The idea of these “last� events makes everything seem much more important than they actually are. It takes away the ability of living in the moment freely and has us constantly worrying that each moment is special. It’s easy to get wrapped up in making sure every moment is memorable. So, even though your last semester just started, it’s OK. Each moment in our lives is important, but don’t get caught up in making sure each moment is going out with a bang. You might miss out on the other things that are happening around you. But each person is different. Still do what makes you happy. If going out every day of the week is the ideal last semester for you, then by golly, go for it. Personally, staying in and watching a movie with my friends is a perfect way to spend a Friday evening — surely there is a horror movie on Netflix that we have not seen yet. Coming down the home stretch of this final semester will contain many “lasts.� But don’t get bogged down by them because as one chapter ends, a new one begins.

Journey through college isn’t a straight read JOHN BUYSSE Opinions columnist


little over a year ago, I came across a quote from Saint Augustine that said, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.� At the time, I was mulling whether to spend the fall semester abroad. At first glance, the quote reinforced what many people had already told me: Traveling is amazing and doing so for an entire semester is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. After thinking about it a while longer, though, I realized that it made leaving Champaign more urgent than traveling. I needed a break and the ability to study abroad was my chance to do so. Don’t get me wrong, I love Champaign and this University more than can be conveyed in a newspaper column. That said, after three years of heavy involvement in a variety of activities on campus, I began to feel much like I do when reading for a class. If the world is a book, I was reading the same page over and over without actually processing what I was reading. So, instead of attempting to read the page I was stuck on (Champaign) over and over, I did what I would do with a class reading: I decided to skip the page and come back to it later. Since that time, I spent the summer working at my dream internship in Austin, Texas, studied in Belgium for the fall semester (while traveling Europe on weekends) and just spent the last two weeks at an intensive ad agency work-

shop in Richmond, Va. By Saint Augustine’s count, I have read more than 10 pages of the world’s book since that time. These pages were filled with many new characters, stressful travel situations, good food and some life-changing experiences. Texas taught me that strangers are, most likely, extremely friendly. Belgium taught me to never fear the unknown. Paris taught me that cliches are cliches for a reason. Berlin taught me that Europe is, in many ways, still feeling the effects of the last century. London taught me that a weekend alone in a new place can be magical. Amsterdam taught me that there’s much more to Amsterdam (and most places) than Americans often acknowledge. Stockholm taught me that a lack of sunlight during the day can be disorienting. Barcelona taught me that I genuinely regret ending my Spanish language education after high school. Rome and Florence taught me that Italy is, well, just as great as people say it is. Richmond, Va., taught me that I am pursuing the career I am meant to pursue. The last eight months of my life were, without a doubt, the best of my life. More importantly, they were spent almost exclusively out of my comfort zone — and out of the country. Whether it was my solo drive to Austin, Texas, constantly navigating unknown cities with the help of old school paper maps or seeing a comedic play on my solo trip to London, I was in a constant state of discomfort — and I’ve never felt more alive. Today, all of that changes. Today is the day I return to the page I was stuck on

one year ago: Champaign, Ill. However, just like when reading for class and skipping one page to read the pages that follow, I will now have a better understanding of this one as I return. While at Tate Modern in London, I came across a quote by the Japanese photographer Miyako Ishiuchi that said, “I am interested in the way that time records itself into things and people.� Upon reading this quote, I realized that it hit the root of my need to explore. As I looked down the barrel of my senior year on campus, it looked as though this year would be filled with the same things and people that had filled my junior year — essentially marking a stoppage in time by Ishiuchi’s standards. This scared me because I wanted to meet more people, do new things and not feel stagnant. As I drove back to campus earlier this week, I thought about the unfamiliar people, places and experiences that pushed me so far outside of my comfort zone. I then realized that those things were all very familiar to me now. More importantly, I realized that Champaign — the epitome of a comfort zone only eight months ago — was now unfamiliar in many ways. Many of my friends have graduated, my roles in activities have lessened and Green Street is looking quite different. These changes mean new challenges. Fortunately, eight months of the unknown and three years of a truly great educational experience at the University have prepared me for anything.

PWC munity to vote once a day, as this was the maximum amount allowed per day by PwC. “The last two hours of voting on that night were easily the most intense hours of work I’ve ever had, and maybe in life,� Fontana said. On Dec. 2, Team Innovate discovered that they won with more than 11,000 votes, exceeding University of California, Berkeley’s vote total by less than 10 votes. “Once they found out that they won, they really began to focus on making this the best presentation it can be,� Fontana said. “The maturity and the professionalism continued to increase every time we hit a new milestone.� Fontana said that even during fi nal exams, the team was “still focused on not leaving any stone unturned for the national competition.� Before presenting at nationals, PwC connected the team to more associates and members from the fi rm to review their presentation and answer any questions they had. For Liu, the opportunity to work with professionals from PwC was especially exciting because of an internship she will

begin with the fi rm in their Chicago office in the summer. “This fi rm is so dedicated to all of its people,� Liu said. “Even though not all of us were employees of the fi rm, they were so willing to spend so much time and energy. It was really surprising in a good way.� Tim Reierson and Robin Miller, fi rm relationship partners from PwC, acted as coaches, mentors, advocates and sounding boards for Team Innovate throughout December and early January to prepare them for the national round. “I wanted the students to always feel that we believed in them and that no matter the outcome, we were going to be proud of them,� Rierson said. Once the team arrived in New York City, they received T-shirts, jackets and other giveaways, and the company took them out to dinner and to see “Wicked� on Broadway. The next day, they were given some time to prepare in a boardroom, and then they presented for the judges. Each member was the expert on a certain aspect of the case, and Bosworth opened and closed the presentation. “Our presentation at nationals was probably the best presentation we’d given, and we really left no regrets in New York,� Wolken said. While the University allows

students to pick their teammates, many of the teams who attend nationals are assigned based on intellect and ability. Both Fontana and Wolken agreed that having the opportunity to pick teammates enabled a genuine chemistry for the team. “It’s going to sound cheesy, but over the process, you think you have a 12-minute presentation and each person is going to take their part and then be done,� Wolken said. “But you forget how important it is for the four other members of the team to not only know what you’re presenting on, but understand what’s going into it. If someone was struggling during the Q-and-A, any one of us could’ve stepped in and answered because we all knew our parts so well.� Though the team did not win fi rst place, they were the fi rst group to compete at the national level from the University since 2010. “The success of this year’s competition is largely measured by how much the team has developed and grown, personally and professionally,� Miller said. “I truly believe coming out of this, they have the confidence to know that they can do whatever they want.�

Go bananas for healthy alternative to ice cream BY ANNA HECHT STAFF WRITER

Delectable ice cream made from a single ingredient, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy? I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it either â&#x20AC;&#x201D; until I tried it for myself. To make one-ingredient banana purĂŠe ice cream, all you need is three frozen bananas, a blender or food processor and an insatiable appetite. Now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying that this soft serve-style banana pureĂŠ necessarily competes with ice cream from Coldstone Creamery or the Ron Burgundy-inspired Ben & Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flavor â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scotchy Scotch Scotch.â&#x20AC;? But it sure hits the spot when I am craving something cold and sweet. An added bonus? This deliciously creamy ice cream imitation fell right in line with my New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolution to eat sweets only sometimes

instead of all the time. The fi rst step to concocting your own at-home ice cream is to peel and freeze the wellripened bananas on a plate (or in a Ziplock bag, as I did) for one to two hours. Or, you can throw some of the bananas in the freezer ahead of time, but be sure to let them thaw for about 15 minutes before blending. Once your bananas are partially thawed, break them into smaller sections and place them inside the blender. Then, alternate between pressing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;purĂŠeâ&#x20AC;? setting on your blender and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;ice crushâ&#x20AC;? setting until the bananas have reached a whipped, applesauce-like consistency. While blending, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also helpful to stop every 30 seconds or so and scrape the

After your â&#x20AC;&#x153;ice creamâ&#x20AC;? has reached the perfect, custardlike consistency, grab a spatula, scoop it into a bowl and voilĂ !

Champaign-Urbana celebrates Martin Luther King, Jr.



artin Luther King, Jr. Day is much more than a day off from school and work for most â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it is an opportunity to serve and give back to the community. Since 1983, the third Monday of January has marked a federal holiday in honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the legacy he left behind as a front-runner of equal rights, peace and unity. In 1994, Congress designated the King holiday as a National Day of Service in response to his pressing question: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are you doing for others?â&#x20AC;? This is a question that students and community members of Champaign-Urbana can answer for themselves. Not only for today, but for the entire week â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and throughout the year. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme of the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honoring the Civil Rights Movement as the Struggle Continues: Empowering the Dream ... Make It Your Own.â&#x20AC;? The commemorative week began last Friday with the 13th Annual Countywide Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration at the Hilton Garden Inn â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with keynote speaker Cheryl Brown Hender-

son, daughter of the late Oliver L. Brown (Brown v. Board of Education) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the 29th Anniversary Event at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday night. Monday morning, the Advocacy for Justice Committee invited community members to celebrate the birth of MLK Jr. as a way to begin the National Day of Service. The rest of the day unfolded with two service events that encouraged students and Champaign-Urbana residents to engage in their own communities. Both events aimed to provide on-site volunteer activities to continue Dr. Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream of unifying a diverse community. These events jump started the commemorative week, which seeks to â&#x20AC;&#x153;speak to the diversity and voice of civil rights and struggles that Dr. King faced,â&#x20AC;? said Otis Noble III, co-chair of the Commemorative MLK Committee and senior campus and community affairs specialist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With planning these events, it really is at the core trying to bring a full community and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is what we remember; this was a great struggle that really changed our country. But there is more work to be done, and together we can make that happen,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Noble III said. To achieve this goal, the Com-

memorative MLK Committee tried to make their events â&#x20AC;&#x153;open, accessible and inviting to a wide variety of people,â&#x20AC;? said Anthony Fontana, co-chair of the Commemorative MLK Committee and associate director of admissions and enrichment academy. Events include dinner celebrations, breakfasts, movies, volunteer opportunities, panel discussions and a first-time poverty simulation in collaboration with the Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School of Social Work on Friday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The objective of this simulation is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;better understand the issues, hurdles and roadblocks that individuals living in poverty face,â&#x20AC;? said Christin Avgar, School of Social Work assistant dean for student affairs and Commemorative MLK Committee member. The simulation will be held at 1010 W. Nevada St. in Urbana. Although the poverty simulation may be more engaging or active than other events, Avgar urges students to participate in what the MLK, Jr. celebration has to offer as a whole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of the events provide the opportunity for all individuals to come together to celebrate the legacy of a truly remarkable man who

Business students advance to national competition BY ALICE SMELYANSKY STAFF WRITER

The theme was â&#x20AC;&#x153;One company, one world, one future.â&#x20AC;? But it was one relentless commitment to the PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP case competition that allowed a group of students from the University to reach the national level. On Jan. 3 and 4, the members of Team Innovate â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Naomi Liu, Michael Bosworth, Jasmine Joda, Saajan Patel and Joshua Wolken â&#x20AC;&#x201D; flew to New

York City to compete against four other schools in PwCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual xTREME Accounting Competition. Though nationals took place over a course of two days, the journey to get there began weeks before, when the students entered the contest against 29 other teams from the University in mid-October. Anthony Fontana, associate director of Admissions and Enrichment Academy in the College of Business, and Brooke


Elliott, associate professor of accounting, were advisers for the competition. They worked on recruiting students and aiding them throughout the process. Once the case was given out, the teams had two weeks to create a 12-minute presentation for a panel of judges. The case was about a hypothetical company called Perpetual Energy Group, a company that was considering building a biodiesel facility. Students were given information about Perpet-

ual Energy Group and had to analyze the building of this facility from a financial, environmental and social aspect, Liu said. As soon as Liu and her teammates knew about the case, they weighed each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strengths and weaknesses, assessed solutions and structured the analysis along with its creative aspects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had practiced so much and invested so much time into this, there really wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much time for nerves,â&#x20AC;? said Wolken, junior in Business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the U

Berkeley and University of Cincinnati to secure a spot at the national round. The students were told to film a one-minute video explaining why they deserved to go to New York City. From there, they worked against the clock to get as many votes on Facebook as possible by Dec. 1.

Leading up to the first round, Wolken and his four teammates practiced for at least two hours every day, and about six to seven on the last two days before the presentation. On the evening of Nov. 4, the team won the University round. Shortly after, they entered an intense video contest against University of California,



SPORTS Illini lose 4th straight to MSU; Groce loses cool BY JOHNATHAN HETTINGER STAFF WRITER


Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head coach John Groce reacts to a call during the game against Michigan State at State Farm Center on Saturday. The Illini lost the game 78-62.

Illini athletes bring good news

Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletics had a weekend of awards and recognition in number of sports

Illinois head coach John Groce lost his temper, his sport coat and his fourth straight game Saturday night as the Illini fell to No. 4 Michigan State 78-62. Illinois fell behind 35-25 at halftime after being outrebounded by the Spartans 24-10 in the opening half. The Spartans were able to extend the lead to 13 points with 15:41 remaining, but the Illini cut the deficit to 59-53 with 6:09 remaining. The crowd rose to its feet, but Spartans guard Keith Appling hit a 3-pointer to extend the Michigan State lead back up to nine. On the other end of the court, Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jon Ekey hit a 3-pointer, but it was waived as Kendrick Nunn set an illegal screen leading to the shot, launching Groce into a minutes-long, curse-ridden tirade about the officiating that eventually saw him throwing his coat and being held back by assistant coach Dustin Ford after being issued a technical foul with 1:38 remaining. After the game, Groce only

had positive words about the officials. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought they were terrific,â&#x20AC;? Groce said. Groce, however, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as happy with the play from his veterans, particularly center Nnanna Egwu and guard Joseph Bertrand. Egwu was held scoreless for the second straight game, shooting 0-for-3, grabbing just two rebounds and committing four fouls in 22 minutes. Bertrand also committed four fouls to go along with four points and two turnovers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to play better,â&#x20AC;? Groce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of confidence in those guys that they can play better. They have played better. They have to hang in there and figure it out.â&#x20AC;? Junior Tracy Abrams, who fi nished with a team-high 15 points, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too worried about Egwu and Bertrand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those guys understand that this is a grind,â&#x20AC;? Abrams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long season. We got 12 rounds left.â&#x20AC;? With Egwu and Bertrand struggling, freshmen Maverick

thletic performances unfold on the field of play. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s those performances, however, that lead to accolades and recognition away from the arena. Awards get you noticed, and the recognition athletes receive from their achievements can end up elevating them to the highest level of the sport. The accolades and good news rolled in last weekend for several current and former Illini athletes. The menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gymnastics programs had successful meets, headlined by the awards their freshmen athletes received Monday. Chandler Eggleston of the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team received his second-straight Big Ten Freshman of the Week honor for his performance at the Windy City Invitational on Saturday. Eggleston won a title in floor exercise and fi nished third on vault. His efforts helped the Illini tie Ohio State for second place at the meet. On the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side, freshman Erin Buchanan helped the Illini win its trimeet at Huff Hall, capturing a title in floor exercise in the process. She was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week for the fi rst time in her career. Senior Vanessa DiBernardo of the Illinois soccer team was drafted fourth overall on Friday in the National Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Soccer League College Draft by the Chicago Red Stars. The two-time NCAA All-American is the highestdrafted player in school history, and the Naperville native now has a chance to play professionally roughly 30 miles from where she grew up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited and honored to be drafted by the Chicago Red Stars, especially because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my hometown,â&#x20AC;? DiBernardo said in a press release. The Chicago Red Stars are a member of the nine-team NWSL, a league in its second year of existence. Its teams


On a wrestling team that has been battling injuries all season, redshirt freshman Zac Brunson has been feeling the need to step up. No. 16 Brunson took the mat against Michiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 13 Brian Murphy in the 157-pound match and, after a scoreless fi rst period, was able to secure two minutes of riding time in the second and score a point for an escape in the third to win 2-0. Despite holding a lower ranking, Brunson didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of the win as an upset. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I defi nitely think now that I was the better wrestler,â&#x20AC;? Brunson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the end, I got the win for the team and a win for myself. Whether it was an upset or not, I felt pretty good about it.â&#x20AC;? Brunsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gritty victory wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough for the Illini, however, as they dropped

Illini remain winless against Big Ten Wrestling team falls to 0-3 in Big Ten play after 7-3 loss to Wolverines



another Big Ten dual against Michigan on Friday by a fi nal score of 13-19, remaining winless against the Big Ten. Head coach Jim Heffernan is not overly concerned with the team record and has put a greater focus on individual performances, because individuals and not a team as a whole make it to the NCAA tournament in March. Heffernan wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say he was disappointed with the team, and he sees its losses as learning opportunities for the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were situations in a couple of matches where if we were to score the next points, we would have won,â&#x20AC;? Heffernan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was one of those deals where we just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do enough. We pointed out some things, and I hope those were practical learning situations that our guys will get something from.â&#x20AC;? In particular, he pointed to No. 11 Jackson Morseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss against No. 8 Dan Yates. Morse had trouble connecting on his attacks and putting pressure on his opponent, eventually losing the match 7-3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He did a good job of closing space and getting me to wrestle his match by putting me in a front headlock a lot,â&#x20AC;? Morse said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;He made me work hard from there.â&#x20AC;? The injuries on the team continue to be a problem, with Mario Gonzalez and Steven Rodrigues sitting out of the meet. Heffernan said the biggest effect the injuries have had is limiting the healthy wrestlersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chances to spar with teammates. Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; next challenge will be its biggest of the season as it travels to take on the No. 1 team and three-time reigning NCAA champion Penn State on Jan. 24. Despite the losses, Brunson said the team has kept its spirits high as it heads into the most difficult part of the schedule. Heffernan is also looking forward to the challenge the Penn State dual presents, in which Illinois will be considered an underdog for the fi rst time this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our guys should be excited, and the thing is weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re underdogs, so we have to compete that way,â&#x20AC;? Heffernan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be ready for the No. 1 team in the country, the three-time defending champion in a packed gym, then you really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a heartbeat.â&#x20AC;?

Club hockey picks up 2 easy victories on weekend No. 20-ranked hockey team defeats Chicago Jr. and Eastern Illinois BY SEAN NEUMANN STAFF WRITER

The Illini hockey team took advantage of two easy opponents for a pair of routine victories before they head into three weeks of tougher matchups. No. 20 Illinois (15 -13 -1) defeated the Chicago Jr. Bulldogs 6-1 on Friday night and continued that momentum Saturday night with a 10-2 win over Eastern Illinois. Illinois was scheduled to play a weekend series against DePaul, but after the Blue Demons canceled, the Illini found two new opponents in Eastern Illinois and the Chicago Jr. Bulldogs — a junior-level hockey team of which Illini junior Jacob Matysiak was the captain in the 2010-11 season. “We could’ve practiced this weekend or something, but it’s always good to have some game situations against opponents,” defenseman Cody von Rueden said. “At the bottom line, it’s always fun to play games. Especially at home.” The Bulldogs put a scare into Illinois when they scored three minutes into the first period after a slow start from the Illini, but six unanswered Illini goals in the first and second periods lifted them over their juniorlevel opponent. Junior Jon Langan scored twice, while senior John Scully and sophomore Matt Johnson each scored one apiece. Matt Welch added a goal of his own,

Seven Illini claimed event titles Saturday, and 13 others finished within the top-three in their respective events. “The thing that was really encouraging were the performances we had without three of our big scorers,” Turk said in a press release. “Matt Bane, Vanier Joseph and Stephon Pamilton are all Big Ten champions, but we held them out today.

Illinois swept the top three in the 60 meters, as Brandon Stryganek, the defending Big Ten champion, took first for the second straight week. Darius Thomas finished second, and DJ Zahn took third. Stryganek also took first in the 200 meters, while Zahn finished third. “Brandon was really good today,” Turk said. “The times he recorded in both the (60) and (200) were great for him this early in the season. He’s never run that fast this early. DJ Zahn really showed that he’s getting himself back in shape, and it was great to have Cam Viney back this week.” Zahn finished the 400 meters with a time of 48.99 to take first in the event, with freshman


The Illinois swimming team escaped a long weekend of competition with an even record by defeating three of its six opponents. Illinois opened the weekend competition in Ames, Iowa, on Friday as they defeated Iowa State 168-132, claiming eight event wins. The Illini fell behind early after the Cyclones jumped to a 21-15 lead despite Illinois winning the 200-medley and the 1000-yard freestyle. They were able to take control in both 200 free and 200 butterfly where they swept both events and took a 65-47 lead they would never surrender. Freshmen duo Gabbie Stecker and Amelia Schilling led the team with 35 combined points. Stecker, who is a Bettendford, Iowa, native, won three individual events, claiming firsts in the 200 free, 500 free and 400 IM with times of 1 minute, 52.54 seconds, 4:56.52 and 4:28.81, respectively. Other first-place finishes for the Illini included Alison Meng in the 100 backstroke (56.95) and 100 fly (56.93), Lori Lynn in the 200 fly (2:05.00), Jessica Holz in the 200 back (2:03.55) and Erica Lynn in the 200 breaststoke (2:21.07).

Illinois ran away with the tri-meet, scoring a 196.175 to triumph over Centenary College and WisconsinEau Claire, which posted scores of 186.650 and 185.975, respectively. “A 196 is a great score, especially for the second meet,” sophomore Giana O’Connor said. “There’s always room for improvement and always things we can work on, but I think (Saturday) went really well.” The team totals for Illinois featured a score above a 49 in all events besides vault, where the Illini scored a 48.7. “It was great for our team to come out for the first time at home and really hit four for four events,” head coach Kim Landrus said. Along with the win, the Illini placed in the top five for all of the events, giving Illinois the clean sweep. Senior Amber See won her

second straight vault title with a “We always knew that Erin was 9.8.

Hiltzik, Kopinski shine in men’s tennis meet Top singles players dominate at Illini Open in Florida BY J.J. WILSON ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR

The No. 22 Illinois men’s tennis team shone as brightly as the Florida sun at the three-day Illini Open in Ft. Myers, Fla., last weekend. In the prelude to their dual season, the Illini’s top two singles players both dominated their competition with 3-0 records. No. 4 sophomore Jared Hiltzik sank his competitors with three straight-set victories, his best win coming over No. 100 Sasha Gozun from South Florida at 6-4, 6-4. Meanwhile, No. 46 junior Tim Kopinski earned his own straight-set victory of 6-1, 6-5(4) on the first day but was forced to win two three-set tiebreakers to stay undefeated on the week-

end. No. 106 junior Farris Gosea also posted a strong 2-1 performance on the weekend, his only blemish coming in thirdset tiebreaker loss following two straight-set victories. Illinois saw less success on the doubles end with its highest ranked tandem going 1-1 on the weekend. After playing with other teammates on Day 1, No. 4 juniors Ross Guignon and Tim Kopinski fell in a tiebreaker 6-5(5) on Day 2 against an unranked duo from No. 15 Florida. The Illini tandem responded on Day 3 with a 6-4 victory over the No. 16 pair of Oliver Pramming and Ignacio Gonzalez-Muniz from South Florida. Other standout doubles performances from Illinois came from its other two ranked tan-

dems — No. 27 Gosea and Blake Bazarnik and No. 31 Hiltzik and Alex Jesse. Hiltzik’s strong performances in both doubles and singles earned him the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player award. Each recorded 2-1 records on the weekend, but only Hiltzik and Jesse were able to join their compatriots in defeating the ranked pair from South Florida, 6-1. The spring season will be in full swing this weekend when the Illini travel to Oxford, Miss., for the ITA Kickoff weekend against No. 11 Ole Miss, No. 23 Clemson and No. 26 Michigan.

Hill added eight points and two rebounds on 3-for-5 shooting in 13 minutes, including nine in the first half. Groce said he liked the way his team fought, but it lost to a better basketball team — one that shot 56 percent from the field and 40 percent from three, while outrebounding the Illini 38-25.

“It certainly wasn’t because of a lack of effort, or energy,” Groce said. “We made some mistakes, and they took advantage of them. “All in all, we were right there.”

The Illinois women’s tennis team found welcoming beaches and high temperatures when they arrived in Maui for the annual Hawaii exhibition tournament. The opponents they faced were not nearly as welcoming. This was the first trip for the team as a whole, and the Illini finished 11-20 in individual play this weekend in their final tune-up before hidden dual play begins. The tournament was an exhibition and results do not affect regular season records. No. 4 Georgia, No. 29 Oklahoma State, and Hawaii-Pacific were the Illini’s opponents this weekend, and they showed that this season is going to be an interesting one for an Illini program that is fighting for national relevance. The Illini waited out a rain delay Thursday, and afterward went 0-9 against No. 4 Georgia, a perennial women’s tennis powerhouse.

Friday, both the weather and the Illini’s play improved, as they went 8-4 against Hawaii-Pacific, who traveled just one island over for the tournament. The doubles team of All-American Junior Melissa Kopinski and Freshman Alexis Casati won their doubles match 6-3 as well as picking up wins in each of their singles matches against the Sea Warriors. Then on Sunday, the tide turned back against the Illini, and they finished 3-7 against No. 29 Oklahoma State. Casati, Senior Allison Falkin, and Junior Julia Jamieson collected the Illini’s three wins in their respective singles matches. Illinois dropped a 4-3 nail-biter to the Cowboys in San Diego last season Casati turned in the best performance of the weekend for the Illini, finishing 2-1 in doubles and along with Kopinski, produced the biggest doubles win of the weekend for the team. All of the matches were played outdoors in temperatures above

70 degrees, which is in stark contrast to the indoor matches the Illini will be playing, both home and away, well into March. The Illini’s home opener is a Jan. 24 double-header versus St. Louis and Chicago. The Billikens and the Maroons are rare nonconference opponents for the Illini, who have not faced either team in spring play in more than a decade. The Illini will then face traditional early-season opponents UIC and Illinois State in a second straight home double-header on Jan 26. In the last decade, the Orange and Blue have not dropped a match to either instate rival. The Illini look to get off to a better start this season than they did last year, where they were swept in their season opener at Miami.

Blackhawks’ Hossa not yet ready to retire BY CHRIS KUC CHICAGO TRIBUNE

CHICAGO — There are moments during the solitude of the road when Marian Hossa’s thoughts inevitably drift to the possibility of no longer being a hockey player. “It always crosses your mind when the season is getting really long, and you’re on the road and you have lots of time to think,” the Blackhawks winger said. “As long as I can enjoy the game and keep up with the young guys, I want to definitely play. We’ll see how long.” Having just turned 35 and with 1,064 games spread over 16 NHL seasons under his belt, the undeniable fact is Hossa is much closer to the end of his career than the beginning. The other undeniable fact is Hossa is playing at such a high level that any thoughts of retirement should be buried deep in the recesses of his mind. There is arguably no player in the league displaying skills at both ends of the ice that can match Hossa’s. The Slovakia native ranks in the top 25 in scoring with 20 goals and 22 assists, leads the league with 57 takeaways and is second with a sparkling plus-25 rating. As glorious a feeling as it is to score a goal — and he has done so 454 times during his illustrious

career — it’s apparent Hossa gains just as much satisfaction from a takeaway following a strong back check. “When you look around this room, there are so many goal scorers so I don’t have to worry about scoring as much,” Hossa said. “When I came here, I tried to set an example of playing two ways. I learned it and I’m sure there are lots of young players in this dressing room like when I was young and I could look up to somebody. Maybe if somebody is willing to play both ways I can be an example, so I try to do that. I would be happy if I can help that way.” It is an example set by actions, not words. “To tell you the truth, I don’t talk about anything,” Hossa said. “I just try to play my way and if they see something, it’s great. I’m not one of those guys who are going to come up to them and try to teach them something.” Whatever the method, it is delivered. “He doesn’t act like he’s 35,” said Bryan Bickell, whose stall is next to Hossa’s in the Hawks’ dressing room. “He’s almost like a 25-year-old the way he moves around the ice, his burst of speed and his agility. He’s a solid backchecker, he strips guys with a never-give-up kind of attitude. He’s been a forward in the league for

a long time and I’m sure he’s still got a couple of years.” Off the ice, Hossa shows teammates the way to prolong a career while maintaining an All-Star level of play despite having faced major injuries. He has undergone shoulder surgery, suffered a severe concussion and currently plays despite a disk problem in his back that hindered him during the 2013 Stanley Cup Final. “He’s a top athlete — amazing conditioning,” coach Joel Quenneville said. “He really takes care of himself ... on a daily basis. He plays a smart game (and) he’s not showing any signs of slowing down. Some years it looks like he keeps getting better in a lot of situations.” While Hossa is among the bestconditioned NHL players, it’s very unlikely he’ll play through the remainder of his contract. He is in the fifth season of a 12-year, $63.3 million deal signed with the Hawks in the summer of 2009. Still, there is no reason — barring another significant injury — Hossa can’t continue on for the foreseeable future. “I try to take care of my body,” he said. “I know I’m not getting any younger, so the recovery is so important for older guys. You have to be smart what you do off the ice and I try to manage my body in the right way.”

Broncos’ Champ Bailey reaches Super Bowl after 15 years BY RANDY COVITZ MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE

DENVER — None of the Denver Broncos waited as long for a trip to the Super Bowl as cornerback Champ Bailey. Fifteen years. Bailey, a 15-year NFL veteran, 12-time Pro Bowler and future Hall of Famer, hadn’t contributed much to the Broncos’ run to the AFC championship game. A foot injury kept him out of 11 games this season, and he made just three starts. But a season-ending knee injury to former Kansas star Chris Harris Jr. allowed Bailey to reclaim his starting left cornerback job Sunday. And Bailey played a crucial role in the Broncos beating Tom Brady and the New England Patriots 26-16, which put Denver in Super Bowl XLVIII against Seattle. “That’s what it’s all about — get yourself to have a chance to get in the big one, and that’s where we are now,” Bailey said.

No one could understand what reaching the Super Bowl meant to Bailey more than Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. “I’m certainly happy for Champ, I know a lot of people are,” said Manning, a longtime opponent of Bailey’s. “Let’s see, Champ’s one year younger than me, so he’s in his 15th season . . . it’s hard to get to the Super Bowl. It’s hard to win it, but I’m telling you it’s hard to get there. “Champ played well (on Sunday). I’m glad that he’s back out there on the field. He’s battled through some injuries and has stayed at it and been committed to his rehab.” A year ago, Bailey played all 16 games for the ninth time in his career and was voted a starter for his 12th Pro Bowl — a record for a defensive back. But he suffered a Lisfranc sprain on the turf at Seattle in the second preseason game, and at 35 years old, there were some doubts whether Bailey would ever be back.

“I had a million thoughts go through my head with this injury,” he said. “And I’ve never had to deal with something like this. I knew I would come back. You might not have known, but I knew I’d be back at some point. “My coaches, teammates they never gave up on me. They knew I’d be back to 100 percent at some point, and here I am. I’m playing probably my best football of the year because I haven’t played much, and I’m just looking forward to the next one.” Bailey watched as other corners, notably Harris, took over the spot he manned since coming to Denver in 2004 in a blockbuster trade with Washington for running back Clinton Portis. The most dangerous thing he could do was come back too soon. “I don’t put damaged goods on the field, so that’s just how I am,” Bailey said . “We’re all banged up — we all got something to deal with. It’s not

about my health. I mean I feel good and it showed (Sunday), and I’m just looking forward to the next one.” Bailey was one of several Broncos players who dealt with adversity, be it season-ending injuries to starters such as center Dan Koppen, tackle Ryan Clady and linebacker Von Miller or the heart surgery coach John Fox underwent in the middle of the season that sidelined him for four weeks. “Well, every team goes through something,” Bailey said. “Even New England, they went through a lot this year and they ended up here as well. “These guys, starting with our head coach, he’s done a great job of making us understand the moments and taking advantage of them. I think with his absence and coming back, we just found a way to win and keep going and that really (is JERILEE BENNETT MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE a) credit to him because he made Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey pressures sure that we’re prepared for things Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Mike Brown at Sports like that.” Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, on Oct. 13.
