Assembly Hall lights up with ‘all that jazz’ Illini Union Board puts on musical production of ‘Chicago’ with changes for venue BY GORDON UTENDAHL CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The Illini Union Board’s production of “Chicago” brought murder, greed, corruption and lust straight from the vaudeville-inspired musical to the main stage at the Assembly Hall on Saturday. Zach Moyer, director and sophomore in FAA, said the 24-member cast tried to stay true to the original musical and screenplay while still tailoring it to appeal to their targeted audience. “I made the choice really early on to take some major

olored powder fi lled the air at the Business Instructional Facility Lawns on Saturday as about 500 students and community members threw handfuls at each other to celebrate Holi, a Hindu spring festival. Registered student organization Asha For Education, a national, secular nonprofit, hosted the event celebrating Holi, also known as the Festival of Colors. About $4,000 of ticket proceeds from the event went toward organizations that support children in India. Pratim Patil, co-chapter coordinator of Asha, said this was the second year the RSO hosted the event. “We did it here last year for the fi rst time, and we were testing how this would turn out as a fundraiser, and it was really great,” Patil

“It’s an extra opportunity to hang out with my mom. I don’t always get to go home every weekend, so she gets to come to me.”

BY THOMAS THOREN AND MAGGIE HUYNH STAFF WRITER AND DAYTIME EDITOR

As Chief Illiniwek’s absence hits the five-year mark, one independent logo has emerged as a temporary alternative for pro-Chief fans, which debuted Friday. After a year of designing the logo, the Council of Chiefs, a group of former Chief Illiniwek portrayers, has teamed up with Gameday Spirit to sell T-shirts with the logo. Steve Raquel, president of the council, said this gives fans and alumni a new way to tangibly support the Chief. He added that a portion of the sales of will go toward scholarship funds and service-based events. The council went through a long design process in order to find a balance between something that would be recognizable to fans yet different enough to avoid copyright infringement against the University’s round Chief logo. “At the end of the day, we went to this very abstract logo because we wanted the logo to be distinct enough so: one, we wouldn’t have any trademark issues, and two, that it could stand by itself,” he said. The council first attempted to gain access to the round logo but was denied by the University. “We wanted the tradition to continue

“Even when I come home, or just even over the summer, everyone’s busy, so it’s kind of hard to just get time out, just have it me and my mom. So it’s nice to just kind of spend the whole day, and she gets to see the life I live here away from home.”

B.K. Sharma, senior research scientist at the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, said he enjoyed the size of the event. Last year, Sharma said he hosted a small Holi celebration with about ten families at Orchard Downs Apartments. “It’s a festival of colors, and it’s a festival ... that brings people together,” Sharma said.

said. “The response was really awesome, so we decided to scale it up and had it on a bigger scale this time.” Gwyn Puckett, graduate student, said she appreciated the learning experience Holi presented. “It’s introducing (Indian) culture to America,” Puckett said. “So it’s introducing something to American students they may not be exposed to.” For some students, it was their first time celebrating Holi. Reginald Askew, graduate student, came for the first time this year and said he encourages people to go in the future. “I learned about it in high school, my freshman year,” Askew said. “This is my first one that I’ve attended, even though I’ve known about it for a few years. It’s really fun.”

moving forward,” Raquel said. “We felt that developing our own logo that we could own, that’s outside the purview of the University ... was going to be something that we hoped would be supported by alumni and fans.” Raquel said he and the council realize the history of the round Chief logo cannot be replaced, and they do not wish to do that. He said they would welcome that logo back if the University were to change its stance but must adjust to the present circumstances. Raquel said creating a new mascot, like what is being attempted by a registered student group’s ongoing mascot competition, is “hard to do” because mascots and their accompanying traditions must come organically through peoples’ passion and experiences at a university. Emily Hartl, sophomore in LAS, was one of the first customers to come to Gameday Sports after the store began selling the T-shirts at 4 p.m. Friday. She said she is pro-Chief and found out about the new logo via Facebook. “It’s kind of abstract, not necessarily what you think of when you think of a new Chief logo,” she said. “I hope it takes off.” She said she sees the new design and merchandise as a small way to reincorpo-

rate the Chief into campus culture. Cory Shumard, manager of Gameday Spirit, said this is the first time his store has been approached by a group looking to sell a new Chief design since the University stopped using the Chief mascot in 2007. “Once we saw the logo and what a wonderful job they did with it, everything else from there was just semantics,” he said. He said the product line will expand in the coming week with more T-shirt designs, and he hopes it will grow to more products, such as sweatshirts, in the future. Though Raquel said the only backlash he has received thus far was from passionate Chief supporters who do not want to move beyond the round logo, Shumard said he expects more backlash for selling this new design. “We would be naïve to think there wouldn’t be some (backlash),” he said. Shumard said in the 15 years he has operated the store at their Green and Sixth streets location, he has received criticism for selling the University-sanctioned logo. “I always hoped that I had enough orange and blue in my store that would cater to both opinions,” he said. Shumard said he believes the council’s goal for this new product line is to remind

Weinstein fails to advance after fall Alina Weinstein of the Illinois women’s gymnastics team competed in the all-around at the NCAA Championships over the weekend, where she took 20th in the session with a score of 38.550. Though junior Weinstein came back strong after starting Friday’s national competition with a fall on the uneven bars, it wasn’t enough for her to advance. On Friday, UCLA (197.400), Utah (197.200) and Stanford (197.125) advanced to Super Six in the team competition, joining Arkansas, Florida and Alabama, which earned the crown for the second year in a row.

malfunctions included a curtain and light fi xture colliding and a curtain cutting out two dancers during a tap routine. “(It was) significantly more expensive to do more days (in the Assembly Hall), so (more practice) was not something we felt we needed to do,” Moyer said. Amanda Clement , senior in LAS, practiced daily for four hours to prepare for her lead role as Velma Kelly. Clement said she took creative liberties when interpreting the part of Kelly. “This journey here was a lot of self expression and fi nding our own ways to embody our characters even if you didn’t have a name in the show,” Clement said. The cast was encouraged to add their own interpretations to characters according to their perceptions about the main themes in the musical and their current views of Chicago. Moyer said he views the musical as a visual representation of recurring themes of Chicago, such as corruption and desire for fame. “A show like Chicago really is resounding,” Moyer said. “We get to examine treachery, corruption, murder, greed, all of these things that really swept the youth off of their feet in the 1920s.”

Illini Union Board cancels fall musical The Illini Union Board has decided to not proceed with the 2012-13 fall musical to pursue other smaller projects. The board, or IUB, usually produces a fall and spring musical each year. Tess Mody, director of musicals at the IUB and junior in LAS, said the committee in charge of musicals has been discussing different events for the fall but nothing has been finalized yet. “We’ve done (fall musicals) for many years, but there have been a few years we haven’t just to try to experiment with the area to see if we can bring about different programs,” Mody said. Despite plans for new events, Mody recognized that those involved in the musicals may not like the change. “For a lot of people it is hard, because people really do love doing these musicals but a lot of people are open-minded as well,” Mody said. This spring semester has been “jam packed” for the IUB in an effort to put on the fall musical, Chicago. Mody said the cast and production staff for Chicago could have used more time to announce the show and to form its staff.

risks with this show,” Moyer said. “The way we’re doing ‘Chicago’ the musical is a lot different than what the script calls for.” Moyer added a character to serve as a narrator and also casted an ensemble of actors to play a single character from the original production. Choreographer Lauren Welton , junior in Media, also wanted to be creative with several dance numbers while respecting the “iconic” dance style of the original. Despite the creative changes, the movie is similar to the stage production, Welton said. “I think if people saw the movie and came to the show with the expectation of it being pretty similar, then they were satisfied,” she said.

hief: There’s no denying that this word means something different to those who are, those who have been and even those who will be here at this University. It’s a word that evokes either ire at the lack of sensitivity to Native Americans or sentimentality for what the word continues to mean to many Illini fans. Five years out from the University’s retirement of the former mascot, the Council of Chiefs, a body made up of former Chief Illiniweks, launched a new Chief on Friday. This new image, divorced from the University’s ownership of the round symbol, which is instantly recognizable as the former Illini mascot, was printed on 250 T-shirts and nearly sold out at Gameday Spirit. Below the image on those shirts, sold this weekend, read the word “pride” — a meaning that is universal to alumni of universities the world over — but those who bought the initial batch may not have seen “pride” printed underneath the iconic war paint. Illini consumers more likely read “Chief.” There’s no denying that the tradition is very much alive. The University decided five years ago that its role in the evolution of the Chief was over, hoping that by halting the use of the Chief, the symbol would eventually fade out in history as part of our campus’ dark ages. Although the Chief’s time as the Illinois mascot is over, it’s naive to think that it would bring about the Chief’s ultimate end. Gameday Spirit manager Cory Shumard put it best, saying, “I always

hoped that I had enough orange and blue in my store that would cater to both opinions.” Shumard’s marketing plan is spot-on: Fans should have the choice to recognize the Chief if they so wish. The Council of Chiefs presented this new image: three seemingly amorphous paint streaks, which would probably mean nothing to an Illini outsider, that contain the Chief’s profile on the left side. The new design hardly would evoke the image of a Native American chief, much less that of the Illini Confederation. But show this image to alumni — no matter their opinion on the icon — and they will hear “Chief” echoed in the low rumblings that roll through the Assembly Hall or Memorial Stadium as the second act of the Three-in-One plays. So as the University chooses to open a new book of traditions — whether continuing to use the Block-I symbol or moving forward on another, more politically correct mascot — many Illini fans want to see the next chapter in the Chief’s book. We think they deserve that opportunity.

THE CLOCKWORK MIND

Online trolls cannot be argued with rationally; don’t even try

Diehard defenders of wayward opinions won’t listen to reason JOSEPH VANDEHEY Opinions columnist

R

ule 14 of the Internet clearly states: “Do not argue with trolls — it means that they win.” And yet, here I am, about to break the rule and devote an entire column to the beast that is the Internet troll. For the newbs who don’t grok my lingo, a troll is anyone who deliberately posts provocative or extraneous messages to an online community to elicit a strong emotional response. They are the sadists who get their kicks from angering their fellow netizens. But, more generally, trolls can refer to anyone with a disruptive presence on the Net, and that’s not just verbal laziness at work. Much like Poe’s law — that there’s no parody of extremism so ludicrous that

it cannot be mistaken for actual extremist beliefs — there’s no form of disruption so sincere that it cannot be mistaken for actual malice. And yes, disruption can be sincere. Visit any news article on the Net, and you’ll see people hijacking the discussion because they are absolutely convinced that everyone needs to believe as they do; they take something even tangentially related to their issue of devotion and fill up page after page with arguments, namecalling and conspiratorial rumor-mongering. Their presence ticks off anyone reading, and yet they appear to be sincere in expressing their own viewpoint — although it’s impossible to tell for sure. These opinion trolls infest virtually every corner of the World Wide Web. Heck, we have several recurring trolls who hang out at DailyIllini.com. But it is not enough to remark on the existence of the opinion troll like

a bored safari guide. We must know where they come from and what to do about them. To the question of where, my guess (and a guess it must remain since a professional sociologist I am not) is motivated reasoning. The theory of motivated reasoning suggests that we sometimes decide the truth or falseness of an issue emotionally and then build up logical reasoning for it ex post facto. Chris Mooney, a science journalist who runs the blog “The Intersection,” uses this to explain what he calls the smart idiot effect — a name I myself have no taste for. He noted studies that show conservatives, who can have a strong emotional predisposition not to believe in global warming, tend to become even less trusting of the science as their education level increased. According to Mooney, the higher level of education allowed those who distrusted the science at an emotional level to have

These opinion trolls infest virtually every corner of the World Wide Web. Heck, we have several recurring trolls who hang out at DailyIllini.com.

a vast reservoir of reasons why the science was wrong. If one argument failed, they always had another to rely on. So maybe the reason why the actions of opinion trolls appear so odd to those who don’t adhere to the same fevered beliefs is because we are searching for a logical explanation for the actions, rather than an emotional explanation. When a troll jerks the line of discussion to his topic of interest, it appears as a total non sequitur to the observer, but to the troll himself the original topic and his topic are inextricably linked by the powerful feelings that both inspire within him. As to what to do about trolls, Rule

14 sets out the guidelines quite clearly. If the troll is acting with malice, then by arguing you give them exactly what they want: If the troll is acting with sincerity, then arguing will only exasperate yourself. You can present all the data you wish, point to all the examples you want to, and it won’t convince them of anything. They’ll lawyer your words to say what they want them to say. They already know they are right. It doesn’t matter how. So when in doubt, remember this simple rule. In the woods: Don’t feed the bears. Online: Don’t feed the trolls.

FROM HERE AND THERE

Small-town monotony pushes students to find unique fun REBECCA ROSMAN Opinions columnist

M

y roommate and I have this ongoing joke. Every time we get in her car she asks, “Do you want to just skip town and go to Memphis?” I always respond with an enthusiastic, “Yes!” We’ve never officially made it there. But in these last few weeks of the semester especially, we’ve been pretty eager to escape C-U. We’re two city girls who, after four years spent somewhere between the fluorescent lighting of the Undergraduate Library and the back corner at Murphy’s, have always longed for the

nearest skyscraper. No matter how tempting the pole at Joe’s was, how sweet the home-grown corn at the Urbana farmers market tasted or how many administration scandals brought the University to the national news, we were never able to bleed orange and blue. But this past weekend, I may have bruised a bluish-orangey hue. It only took a total of three long walks and one short drive around campus for some of my best memories to permeate my previously jaded impressions. Walking and reflecting, I remembered that this campus has been home to a variety of firsts for me. The Quad was the first place I ever stargazed at midnight. Joe’s was the first bar I ever entered. One of the houses surrounding Frat Park, which I’ll keep anony-

mous, was home to my first and last frat party. Visiting Holi, the Hindu Festival of Color, on Saturday, I was reminded of the multicultural microcosm this city truly feels like at times. On campus, I’ve made friends from places as far as Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan. I’ve danced at Garba, played the west African djembe drum and tasted my first Korean bulgogi here. Beyond these moments, I’m thinking of the friends who have been there with me through them all. The friends who convinced me that sneaking into the Music Building at 1 a.m. to watch “City of God” on the giant projector screen was a better idea than studying for my CS 105 exam. The friends who sang “I Will Survive” with me during our free ride on the Karaoke Bus down Green Street. The friends who applied the fin-

ishing touches to my makeup as we prepared for Allen Hall’s annual Halloween Zombie Mob. Before coming to C-U as a freshman, I remember venting my concerns to my older cousins about attending a school surrounded by farms. “But that’s the best part!” they exclaimed with a slight hint of jealousy that their four years at the University were already up. Four years later, I now understand that it’s the small-town monotony that pushes us to do things like sneak onto the top of the Armory on a Wednesday night, or walk along the Quad screaming a mix of Van Morrison and Beatles songs at the top of our lungs in between class. Its charm lets us enjoy picking out fresh pumpkins from the Curtis Orchards pumpkin patch, tree-climb-

ing in Carle Park and running early in the morning down Lincoln Avenue, passing the cows by the veterinary building. Champaign-Urbana isn’t a place where I envision spending the rest of my life. But these past four years have brought a variety of memories and experiences that would never have been possible without these twin cities as my backdrop. When I got into my roommate’s car Saturday night, she asked me again, “So, should we go to Memphis?” We didn’t go, and I don’t know if we will. Instead, we got out of the car, and we walked to the Quad with her iPod on speaker setting, belting out Van Morrison and Beatles songs along the way.

US, Afghanistan agree on 10-year partnership BY HEIDI VOGT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KABUL, Afghanistan — The U.S. and Afghanistan reached a deal Sunday on a long-delayed strategic partnership agreement that ensures Americans will provide military and fi nancial support to the Afghan people for at least a decade beyond 2014, the deadline for most foreign forces to withdraw. The pact is key to the U.S. exit strategy in Afghanistan because it establishes guidelines for any American forces who remain after the withdrawal deadline and for fi nancial help to the impoverished country and its security forces. For the Afghan government, it is also a way to show its people that their U.S. allies are not just walking away. “Our goal is an enduring partnership with Afghanistan that strengthens Afghan sovereignty, stability and prosperity and that contributes to our shared goal of defeating al-Qaida and its extremist affi liates,”

said U.S. Embassy spokesman Gavin Sundwall . “We believe this agreement supports that goal.” After 10 years of U.S.-led war, insurgents linked to the Taliban and al-Qaida remain a threat and as recently as a week ago launched a large-scale attack on the capital Kabul and three other cities. The draft agreement was worked out and initialed by Afghan National Security Adviser Rangin Dadfar Spanta and U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker. It must still be reviewed in both countries and signed afterward by the Afghan and American presidents. U.S. forces have already started pulling out of Afghanistan, and the majority of combat troops are scheduled to depart by the end of 2014. But the U.S. is expected to maintain a large presence in the country for years after, including special forces, military trainers and government-assistance programs.

The agreement is both an achievement and a relief for both sides, coming after months of turmoil that seemed to put the entire alliance in peril. It shows that the two governments are still committed to working together and capable of coming to some sort of understanding. “The document fi nalized today provides a strong foundation for the security of Afghanistan, the region and the world and is a document for the development of the region,” Spanta said in a statement issued by President Hamid Karzai’s office. Neither Afghan nor U.S. offi cials would comment on the details of the agreement. A Western official familiar with the negotiations said it outlines a strategic partnership for 10 years beyond 2014. Reaching any agreement is likely to be seen as a success given more than a year and a half of negotiations during which the entire effort appeared in danger of falling apart multiple times.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Wal-Mart Stores Inc. hushed up a vast bribery campaign that top executives of its Mexican subsidiary carried out to build stores across that country, according to a published report. The New York Times reported Saturday that Wal-Mart failed to notify law enforcement officials even after its own investigators found evidence of millions of dollars in bribes. The newspaper said the company shut down its internal probe despite a report by its lead investigator that Mexican and U.S. laws likely were violated. The bribery campaign was reported to have fi rst come to the attention of senior executives at Wal-Mart in 2005, when a former executive of its largest foreign subsidiary, Wal-Mart de Mexico, provided extensive details of a bribery campaign it had orchestrated to win market dominance. The Mexican executive, previously the lawyer in charge of obtaining construction permits, said in emails and followup conversations that Wal-Mart de Mexico paid bribes to obtain permits throughout the country

A man pays at the cash register at a Wal-Mart Superstore in Mexico City. Wal-Mart was charged with covering up a bribery campaign that executives of its Mexican subsidiary carried out to build stores across Mexico. in its rush to build stores nationwide, the Times reported. Wal-Mart’s growth in Mexico has been so rapid that one of every five Wal-Mart stores now is in that country. It is Mexico’s largest private employer, with 209,000 employees there. The newspaper said that only after learning of its investigation did Wal-Mart inform the U.S. Justice Department in December 2011 that it had begun an internal investigation into possible violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Under that law, it is illegal for U.S. corporations and their subsidiaries to bribe foreign officials. Wal-Mart, which is based in Bentonville, Ark., said Saturday that it takes compliance with that law very seriously. It also noted that many of the “alleged activities” in the Times article

occurred more than six years ago. “If these allegations are true, it is not a refl ection of who we are or what we stand for,” spokesman David Tovar said. “We are deeply concerned by these allegations and are working aggressively to determine what happened.” Wal-Mart said its latest, ongoing investigation is being handled by outside lawyers and accountants who are experts with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The company also said it has tightened procedures and expanded training in Mexico to ensure compliance with the law. The Times said its investigation uncovered a lengthy struggle at the highest levels of WalMart, pitting the company’s commitment to high moral and ethical standards against its relentless pursuit of growth.

White Sox sweep Mariners with 7-4 win THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SEATTLE — Alex Rios has been putting in an effort to really concentrate on his approach at the plate and improve the quality of his at-bats. That work paid off Sunday when Rios got three hits and drove in three runs to help the Chicago White Sox completed a series sweep of the Seattle Mariners with a 7-4 victory. Rios hit a tying, two-run triple in the sixth and then scored on a sacrifice fly by Kosuke Fukudome to put the White Sox ahead for good. Rios and Fukudome added RBI singles in the eighth against Tom Wilhelmsen. “I’m just focusing on my approach right now,” Rios said. “I want to swing at good pitches, have a good approach and besides that nothing else.” The win polished off a rejuvenating series sweep of the Mariners after coming to Seattle as losers of four of their last five games. The White Sox have won 19 of their last 22 games against the Mariners including their second straight sweep in Seattle. A day after Phil Humber pitched a perfect game for the White Sox, John Danks (2-2) went six innings for the win. Hector Santiago pitched a scoreless ninth for his fifth save of the season. Seattle starter Kevin Millwood (0-1) took a 4-2 lead into the sixth. Adam Dunn drew a leadoff walk, Paul Konerko singled and after a groundout, Rios cleared the bases with a triple to the wall in rightcenter field. “When you give it up like that you have to come right back and answer,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. “We didn’t do that.” The White Sox took a 2-0 lead in the third on a double by Alexei Ramirez that left fielder Casper Wells misplayed for an error, and an RBI single by Dunn.

Cueto throws strong as Cubs fall short to Reds THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO — On a cold day at Wrigley Field, the Cubs played just bad enough to lose. Johnny Cueto threw 6 1/3 strong innings to lead the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-3 win over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. Cueto (2-0) allowed one earned run, scattering five hits. He struck out seven and lowered his ERA to 1.78 for the season. “He can make the ball sink, he can get it to 94 miles an hour,” said Cubs manager Dale Sveum. “In these conditions against those pitchers, it’s very tough to string a lot of hits together.” Two runners were on base with one out when Cueto exited in the seventh. With two outs and the bases loaded, Aroldis Chapman struck out Ian Stewart looking with a fastball that registered 99 miles per hour on the stadium scoreboard, preserving the lead. Chapman also worked a scoreless eighth, though he did walk his first two batters this season. In 10 1/3 scoreless innings, Chapman had 18 strikeouts while allowing just three hits. Former Cub Sean Marshall pitched the ninth, picking up his third save in three opportunities. The Reds capitalized on Chicago’s mistakes to break a 2-2 tie in the sixth. Cubs starter Randy Wells and reliever Scott Maine combined to walk two batters and hit one more, while Geovany Soto made two throwing errors on sacrifice bunt attempts. “Good bunts, but those plays have to

be made,” Soto said. All told, the Reds sent eight batters to the plate in the sixth, scoring two unearned runs without the benefit of a hit. “It’s what you call an ugly win, I guess,” said Reds manager Dusty Baker. “It was sort of which team played the worst today. We were fortunate enough to come away with the win.” Wells was making his first start of the season in place of Ryan Dempster, who was put on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a right quad strain. Wells struggled with his command, walking five batters in five innings and throwing just 52 of his 93 pitches for strikes. He gave up two runs in the third inning when a double by Joey Votto scored Drew Stubbs and a Scott Rolen single plated Votto. “To Stubbs there, I missed with a couple pitches and got to the 3-2 count,” Wells said. “I thought I made a pretty good pitch to Votto, but the wind wreaks some havoc. “I wasn’t quite as sharp as I’d like to be, but being the first time out it was exciting.” Wells kept the damage to a minimum, limiting the Reds to two runs and leaving with a no-decision. Rodrigo Lopez (0-1) took the loss in relief. Chicago stranded 12 runners, while the Reds stranded 13. The teams combined to leave the bases full five times. “We battled and got on base; we just couldn’t get that big hit,” Sveum said. “They have (Aroldis Chapman and

Sean Marshall) in the bullpen, and we tried to mix and match and get some matchups. “But that’s why, like I said going into this series, those are two of the best in all of baseball, and it’s not that easy to get hits off them.” The Cubs tied the game at two in the

fifth inning when Joe Mather scored from third after a missed catch error by Votto on a pickoff throw at first base followed by an RBI single by Brian LaHair. Starlin Castro singled, tripled and scored two runs for the Cubs, extending his hitting streak to 10 games, the sixth

streak at least that long in his young career. He has reached base in 55 of his last 56 games. Jeff Baker added an RBI groundout in the ninth inning for the Cubs. Votto doubled twice, walked twice, scored a run and drove in another to pace the Reds’ offense.

World Peace ejected in double-OT thriller in LA BY GREG BEACHAM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES — Metta World Peace was subdued and contrite in the Los Angeles Lakers’ locker room, apologizing to Oklahoma City’s James Harden for throwing the elbow that sent them both to the locker room in the second quarter. They both missed a beauty of a game that could echo into the postseason for two division leaders. Kobe Bryant scored six of his 26 points in the second overtime alongside an unorthodox Lakers lineup, and Los Angeles rallied from an 18-point deficit in the second half for a 114-106 victory over the Thunder on Sunday. Pau Gasol had 20 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists for the Lakers, who made an impressive comeback in their regular-season home finale against off-target Thunder stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, who combined to miss 42 of their 56 shots. Los Angeles’ rally stunned the Thunder and set an early tone for their possible second-round playoff matchup. “It’s not so much that we beat Oklahoma, but how we did it,” said Bryant, who shook off his own woeful shooting game with two key 3-pointers late in regulation. “In the playoffs, particularly if you don’t have homecourt advantage, you’re going to have games like this. We have to have the poise and the con-

fidence to just keep chipping away.” Yet everything after halftime was colored by the drama and violence that occurred 1:37 before the break. World Peace had just dunked over Durant and Serge Ibaka on a fast break and was headed back upcourt when he ran into Harden. While pounding his chest with his right arm, World Peace raised his left elbow over Harden’s shoulder and cleanly hit Harden in the back of the skull. Harden dropped to the court and stayed down for about a minute before heading to the locker room. Ibaka and other Thunder players challenged World Peace, but were kept apart, and World Peace was ejected after officials reviewed the tape. “I got real emotional and excited, and it was unfortunate that James had to get hit with the unintentional elbow,” said World Peace, who had scored 12 points and played solid defense on Durant. “I hope he’s OK. Oklahoma, they’re playing for a championship this year. I apologize to the Thunder and James Harden. It was just unfortunate.” The Thunder didn’t immediately announce whether Harden, who scored 14 points, had a concussion. Bryant and other Lakers acknowledged World Peace is likely to face a multigame suspension with just one game left in their regular season.

Guthrie gains momentum going into Big Tens Lone senior’s victory helps Illinois finish 4th at Purdue BY JOHNATHAN HETTINGER STAFF WRITER

Illinois senior Luke Guthrie finished his regular season career in style. Sporting brand new Nike golf shoes along with the rest of the Illini, the lone senior on the Illinois men’s golf team won the Boilermaker Invitational this weekend, finishing with a score of three-under-par. Guthrie was able to win his sixth individual title of his career and second of

the season, shooting a five-under Sunday, with five birdies on the first eight holes. “It is nice to get W’s and momentum heading into the Big Tens next weekend,” he said. “Today I had a better mental approach. I focused up. Yesterday, I was hesitant, and that’s not how I want to play golf.” The new shoes didn’t fare so well for the entire team, however. “Luke bailed us out with his fiveunder,” head coach Mike Small said.

“We were not successful, but there were enough positives to take into next weekend.” The Illini finished fourth in the 18-team tournament with a score of 882 (18-over). Illinois finished behind Big Ten foes Indiana (13-over) and No. 25 Iowa (15-over),as well as No. 21 Kent State (16-over), which had already defeated the Illini twice this spring. Fellow Big Ten members Purdue and Michigan State finished at 29- and 44-over, respectively. “We were competitive and had a huge lead,” Small said. “But some big numbers on individual holes lost it for us.” The Illini were sitting in first place Sunday before junior Mason Jacobs hit his ball into the water twice and then

needed four strokes to bury his third. The five-over on the par-three hole plummeted the Illini four spots down the leaderboard. “If you take away the bad holes, we could have won pretty easily,” said sophomore Thomas Pieters, who had a triplebogey in the first round. Jacobs and Pieters weren’t the only Illini with high scores on individual holes. Guthrie and freshman Brian Campbell finished with two doublebogeys, while freshman Alex Burge had five double-bogeys and a triple-bogey. “Obviously Luke won, but all the rest of us didn’t feel like we had our best games,” said Pieters, who tied for 11th at three-over. Jacobs, Campbell and Burge rounded

out Illinois’ five-man lineup. Jacobs tied for 29th at 11-over, while Campbell tied for 18th at seven-over. Burge finished with a final score of 21-over, though he was not scored because only the top four players in each round get registered. The tournament took place at the Kampen Course in West Lafayette, Ind. The course was designed by Pete Dye, who also designed and is the namesake for the course for next weekend’s Big Ten Championships in French Lick, Ind. “I believe we can win next weekend, so now we just need to go out there and prove it,” Pieters said. The three-day, 72-hole tournament will start Friday, and the final round will be televised live on the Big Ten Network on Sunday.

Ejesieme, Brooks achieve personal bests BY BOB MERLO STAFF WRITER

The Illinois women’s track and field squad posted several personal bests this weekend, three weeks before it enters postseason competition. The Illini’s sprint and field event crews competed at the John McDonnell Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark., while the distance runners competed at the Mt. SAC Relays held in Walnut, Calif. The competitions were the team’s second to last meets before the postseason begins at the Big Ten Championships on May 11. “For the most part, things are moving in the right direction, things are going well,” head coach Tonja Buford-Bailey said. “We’ve still been training pretty hard, it’s time to continue to back off a little bit for the Penn Relays and getting ready for the Big Tens.” Long jumper Kawanna Brooks set a personal best and won the event with a jump of 6.04 meters. She also took fifth the in 100 meter hurdles, in which teammate Jesica Ejesieme set a personal best with a time of 13.92 seconds, good enough for a fifth-place tie with Brooks. “The highlight would probably be the two people that had the biggest performances as far as personal bests,” Buford-Bailey said. “That was Kawanna Brooks in the long jump and Jesica Ejesieme in the 100 hurdles, but I was really focused on Kawanna because she’s a junior this year and she’s been working really hard to break that six meter barrier, and she finally did that this weekend. That really was a big hump for her to get over.” At the Mt. SAC Relays, sophomore Katie Porada and freshman Chloe Schmidt set personal records in the 1,500 and 800 meters, respectively. “It’s a big improvement, it’s moving us up a bit on the Big Ten list, and that’s what we’re looking for at this time of year,” Buford-Bailey said. The 4x100 relay team of sophomore Breeana Coleman, senior Ashley Kelly, junior Kayla Smith and freshman Ashley Spencer that won the event at the Big Ten Indoor Championships posted its best time of the outdoor season of 44.29 seconds. “We have a little more to improve on with our handoffs, but for the most part it was our season best and we can’t be disappointed with that, but we can still run faster,” Buford-Bailey said. Next weekend, the team will split up once again with some athletes competing in the Penn Relays in Philadelphia and others competing at the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa. These will be the Illini’s last opportunities to polish their performances before Big Tens. “The competition is just going to get stronger and stronger, so there has to be a different mindset and a different transition in to the championship part of the season, but we’ve been talking about that all year, every time you step on the track you think like a champion,” BufordBailey said.

f you have not been watching this year’s NHL playoffs, you’re really missing out. With bone-crushing hits, intense overtime thrillers and more fights than you can get on pay-per-view, this year’s playoffs have been great for a league that continues to grow in popularity. Seven years removed from a season ruined by lockout, the NHL has seen viewership skyrocket in the first round. While critics have been quick to complain about cheap shots and excessive fighting, TV ratings show that fans are buying what the league is selling. A fierce series between interstate rivals Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins quenched America’s thirst for playoff hockey, as nearly 2.7 million U.S. households tuned into the third game. It was the highest rated nonStanley Cup Final game since 2002, and for good reason. The teams combined for 148 penalty minutes in a game that saw numerous fights, including a showdown between Penguins captain Sidney Crosby and Flyers star Claude Giroux, in addition to one of the dirtiest hits of the postseason by Penguins forward Arron Asham. Similarly, the end of the second game between the St. Louis Blues and San Jose Sharks turned into a backyard brawl, after the Blues won 3-0.

Fighting has not been the only thing that has kept fans’ attention frozen on hockey, however. Team parity, which is something that college basketball thrives on each March, has played a major role — as viewers from a variety of TV markets across the U.S. and Canada believe their team has a shot. Even for the non-team affiliated audience, upsets and close finishes are turning viewers into fans. Take the Vancouver Canucks for example. Boasting the best regular season record in the league, the Canucks were the favorites to win the Stanley Cup. Recently eliminated by Los Angeles, a society infatuated by underdogs wanted to see if the Kings could dethrone the regular season champs. Vancouver rioted after losing in the finals last year; we want to see what they will do next. No series has been as close, or nerve-racking for Chicago fans on campus, as the one between the Blackhawks and Phoenix Coyotes. Saturday marked the fifth straight overtime game between the squads, as Jonathan Toews’ goal kept the Blackhawks season alive in a 2-1 victory. Aside from the teams fighting to advance, the series was amplified Tuesday when the Coyotes’ Raffi Torres did his best James Harrison impersonation on Marian Hossa. Leaving the ice to deliver a blow, Torres rammed his shoulder into Hossa’s face, resulting in a 25-game suspension. Hossa was carted off the ice on a stretcher and continues to nurse a concussion that he sustained in one of the biggest

NAM Y. HUH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Chicago Blackhawks’ Marian Hossa, of Slovakia, falls down after taking a hit from Phoenix Coyotes’ Raffi Torres (37) during Game 3 of the Stanley Cup playoff series in Chicago. Torres was banned for 25 games for Tuesday’s hit. cheap shots in NHL history. Hits like this are unacceptable, as it was made clear by the NHL. Critics such as Jim Litke of the Associated Press looked at the hit on Hossa, in addition to other acts of violence in the playoffs, as a sign of the league’s lack of grasp on discipline. “The game has never been more popular, nor seemed so out of control,” Litke said in a recent column on MSN.com. However, it is undeniable that the chaos of these playoffs has

made it that much more entertaining. Headshots by Torres and Asham, which threatened the well-being of players, were not tolerated by the league and should be talked about separately from the routine scuffles and hard-hitting that define hockey. While cheap shots and glovedropping clashes are not a requirement for good entertainment, it has only increased the intensity and passion of the playoffs. Rivalries develop faster in hockey than any other sport,

CHAMPIONSHIP

FANS FROM PAGE 1B distracting sometimes when you’re trying to do a set and one of the other guys lands their routines and everybody’s screaming. You’re like, ‘Ugh, I still gotta go,’ but you don’t really let it get to you because then you’re in trouble.” The Illini had some fans of their own, a group of about 50,

NOTEBOOK FROM PAGE 1B

Ruggeri, Maestas earn individual NCAA titles In a quiet and subdued environment, where the gymnasts competed one by one, nine Illini athletes participated in the individual event finals of the NCAA Championships on Saturday night. Ten gymnasts competed in each event, and the top eight were named All-Americans. The Illini were guaranteed at least one All-American in the rings and pommel horse after they had more than two qualifiers.

that the closest team was the team that was going to win again, and that held true. We trust each other, we have confidence in one another and if we weren’t that strong, I don’t even know how we would have done.”

It had been a long season. The Illini had entered the championships with a cloud of doubt surrounding them: They were ranked No. 4; they hadn’t been consistent; last year’s NCAA runner-up in the all-around, Tyler Mizoguchi, had

been released from the team. They never lost faith, knowing they were capable of a national crown. Most of the gymnasts weren’t alive in 1989, the last time the Illini won a national championship; the program had come close

time and time again, but never pulled through. “I told them at the beginning of the season that the only things you guys need to understand that this is your team,” Spring said. “If you want this, you have to step up and take ownership of your own destiny and make sure you’re not another team that should have won another national title.” “This is the team that really did it,” he added. “They did it.” Once it was over, the Illini were relieved and excited, their dreams had came true. “They picked me up, I’ve never been squeezed so hard,” Maestas said Friday. “I have goosebumps still.” It was hard for them to remember that it wasn’t over yet, that there were still individual event finals Saturday, where Illinois had nine qualifiers. The team leaders pulled through in a slower, more controlled environment. Maestas won the program’s first NCAA title on rings and Ruggeri won a share of his first vault title — the fourth NCAA title of his career. No tears were shed Saturday. The celebrations were more subdued and athletes had their voices back, but broad smiles still stretched across every gymnast’s face. It might not have clicked yet, but it was real. Each and every Illini gymnast was an NCAA champion.

mostly family members with some alumni and significant others scattered in the mix as well as two athletes who didn’t make the lineup (freshman Nick Sacramento and sophomore Andrew Margolis). They worked to combat the Sooner crowd with most fans losing their voices. “There were Oklahoma fans on both sides of us so it was hard,” said Cindy Maestas, mother of C.J. Maestas. “We just tried to

be louder than them and lost our voices in the process.” Cindy travelled with her entire family to the meet — her husband Craig and their three children. “We would never miss this, it’s such an exciting time,” she said. Craig was nervous the entire time, sometimes unable to watch, while Cindy remained calm. “I knew that they just had to be calm and do their routines,” Cindy said. “I knew if they hit

it, they would be OK.” Once the final scores were made official, the Illini fans were “possibly as excited as the guys,” said Kathy Ruggeri, mother of Paul. Or not quite. The fans started off an “I-L-L...” chant but were left with no response, the gymnasts were too busy celebrating on their own, lost in the moment. “They haven’t been able to win it for the past couple

years,” Kathy said. “Each and every one of them wanted it so badly and to be there when they accomplished their goal was amazing.” The second attempt at cheering worked better, as all that was heard in the Lloyd Noble Center were the backand-forth screams of “I-L-L..., I-N-I,” and the fans of other teams quietly shuffled out, stopping only to wish those in orange congratulations.

Senior Paul Ruggeri won a part of the vault title in his final routine as an Illini gymnast, tying his career-high 15.50 and sharing the win with Stanford’s Eddie Penev. He tallied his ninth All-America award on the parallel bars, where he finished second. Freshman C. J. Maestas became the first-ever Illini to win a rings title, while senior Anthony Sacramento took eighth, earning his third career All-America honor. Maestas, junior Yoshi Mori and sophomore Chad Mason each were first-year All-Americas on the pommel horse. Sophomore Jordan Valdez and junior Austin Phillips each won

their first career All-America honors on the high bar. “Seven new All-Americans I think shows to the strength of this program,” Spring said. “They’re all young, first-time, gonna be back.”

Ishino, Michigan’s Sam Mikulak and Adrian de los Angeles, and Oklahoma’s Jake Dalton — competed at NCAAs. “We have world-class gymnastics here,” Maestas said. “I like it more out here than on the national level because we’re all just riding off each other, and to be a part of this elite group, it’s just unbelievable.” The national team members won six of the seven individual titles: Ruggeri (vault), Maestas (rings), Ishino (pommel horse), Mikulak (high bar) and Dalton (parallel bars and all-around). “We go to the Olympic Training Center for camp in a week,” Ruggeri said. “The focus is London now.”

FROM PAGE 1B won.” The daze began in the middle of the team finals Friday night at the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman, Okla. Gymnasts were performing their pommel horse routines with a dreamlike perfection. There were mistakes earlier, moments of truth and utter awakenings. Like on the high bar, Illinois’ best event — when two of the team’s top gymnasts, Ruggeri and freshman C.J. Maestas, suffered uncharacteristic falls. Illinois used its depth to its advantage, counting four high bar scores from gymnasts at the bottom of the lineup. The pommel horse squad, which had struggled all season, posted the top performance in school history. “I’m mad at myself because I let them down,” Maestas said. “But they’re my boys and they got my back no matter what. They carried us.” No gymnast had a perfect meet, but the Illini still edged out favorite Oklahoma 358.850-357.450. That made the victory sweeter, how everybody played their part, senior Anthony Sacramento said. “This team was the reason we won, not a single individual,” Sacramento said. “I’ve always thought

only adding to its appeal. The NHL should embrace this style of play, without condoning illegal hits. With football, the top dog in American sports, considering the ban of kickoffs and what seems to be the adoption of quarterback two hand touch, this is hockey’s time to shine — filling America’s desire for physicality and competition in sports.

Buckeyes avoid getting swept, beat Illini 10-4 BY ELIOT SILL STAFF WRITER

The Illinois baseball team missed the opportunity to bring its conference record back to .500 Sunday, failing to complete a sweep of Ohio State after winning the first two games in the weekend series. The Illini (22-17, 5-7 Big Ten) entered the weekend on a streak of seven games without allowing more than five runs and stretched that streak to nine before a Buckeyes (22-18, 7-8) outburst ended the series with a 10-4 loss for the Illini. “We’d played four games in a row where we’ve done a lot of things well, and from the start today we just weren’t sharp with simple baseball fundamentals,” Illinois head coach Dan Hartleb said. Ohio State, meanwhile, notched its first win in more than a week. “We had tough games on Friday and Saturday that didn’t go our way at all, and we had some bad momentum, we were sitting on six straight losses,” Ohio State head coach Greg Beals said. “For this time of the year, it’s about as a must-win game as you can have, and it was good to see us come out and get a W today.” The Illini were buoyed by the bottom of the order in Friday’s

9-1 victory, as the six-throughnine hitters scored eight of Illinois’ nine runs. Kevin Johnson gave Illinois a quality outing, going more than seven innings and allowing just one run. Kelly Norris-Jones went 3-for4 with three runs scored, but it was designated hitter Thomas Shelton who stole the show in just his sixth start of the season. The junior reached on a bunt in the fifth inning, singled in the sixth, resulting in a run off an error and, in his final at-bat of the game, hit a game-busting home run over the right-center field wall, bringing his RBI total to three on the day. “I definitely got into a rhythm, I had a lot of confidence going into my last at-bat. Things were just working tonight,” Shelton said after Friday’s win. Illinois fell behind Saturday when starter John Kravetz surrendered a series of fourthinning hits that went down the baselines, including a base-clearing triple to bring the Buckeyes’ run total in the inning to three. Heady defensive plays by second baseman Reid Roper and shortstop Thomas Lindauer got Illinois out of the inning without further damage. Kravetz remained in the game for two more innings before handing it over to the bull-

Illinois won this past weekend’s series against the Buckeyes, but lost Sunday’s game 10-4. pen, which extended the Illini’s streak of games allowing fewer than six runs to nine. Kravetz recorded the win, his sixth, tying him for the most alltime by an Illinois freshman. Kravetz said he was aware of the record but “not too worried about it.” On Sunday, senior Brian de la Torriente struggled in his second start, allowing five earned runs

off four hits while walking three batters in five innings. Freshman Josh Ferry, who was also in consideration to receive the Sunday start, relieved de la Torriente in the fourth inning but was only able to record one out while giving up three earned runs on a hit and two walks. The performance Sunday suggests the Illini still haven’t got a solidified weekend rota-

tion despite having reached the halfway point in the conference season. “If we can find that reliable guy on Sunday, we can be dangerous,” Hartleb said. “I felt really good going into today because you had some good arms that have been productive. ... But yeah, I’m disappointed that we don’t have that person identified yet.” Despite missing the chance for

a sweep, the Illini are happy to have gotten a much-needed series victory over the weekend. “We came out, played a good Ohio State team and we played ‘em well,” left fielder Justin Parr said. “Obviously we didn’t play how we’d like to (Sunday), but at the end of the day, we got a series and can carry that momentum into next weekend and hopefully get another series.”

Hackett smacks 2 home runs to split doubleheader BY SEAN HAMMOND STAFF WRITER

DARYL QUITALIG THE DAILY ILLINI

Illinois’ Meredith Hackett rounds second base after hitting a home run during the game at Eichelberger Field on Saturday. She had missed the previous five games but managed to hit two home runs against Purdue.

Meredith Hackett announced her return to the Illinois softball lineup with a bang against Purdue over the weekend. She smacked two home runs after missing the last five games for personal reasons, including a grand slam in the second inning of the weekend finale. “It feels good to be back with my team,” said Hackett, who reached base in seven of 11 plate appearances over the weekend. “I was just trying to see the ball and do what I can with my at-bats.” The Illini (21-21, 5-10 Big Ten) took two out of three from Purdue (28-15, 10-4). The Illini are .500 for the first time since April 6. Illinois got on the scoreboard early in Saturday’s opener. Shortstop Jessica Davis hit a one-out double to left field in the first inning. She scored two batters later on a throwing error from Purdue senior shortstop Molly Garst. Hackett announced her return two innings later when she rocketed her eighth home run of the season over the left field fence, scoring two and extending the lead to 3-0. Illinois’ Pepper Gay would

surrender just one run in the seventh inning to give the Orange and Blue a 3-1 victory. “We expect (Hackett) to do that,” head coach Terri Sullivan said. “She’s a leader, she’s a four-year starter. She had a good week of practice and was really anxious to play. We needed her to do that and give us some early momentum.” The Illini took a 2-1 lead into the seventh inning in the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader, only to give up three runs in the final frame. Gay picked up the loss in relief of starter Jackie Guy. Purdue’s Maia Monchek led off the inning with a hard-hit single and eventually scored on a single from Garst. “Game two felt really good going to the seventh,” Sullivan said. “I give a lot of credit to their leadoff batter (Monchek). She had two strikes on her and just got a good hit. You have to expect a team to be at their best all of the time, especially in the seventh inning.” Gay threw 10 innings in Saturday’s two games, surrendering just three earned runs. She also picked up her first career hit in her second career at-bat with a double in the second game, smacking the first pitch

into the left field gap. “The first pitch is the best pitch you get — I know that as a pitcher,” Gay said. “I batted in high school and travel. I practice during the week, I do everything the other hitters do, I just don’t bat in games.” The bats awoke for both teams in Sunday’s finale, with the Illini winning 8-6. Illinois scored seven runs in the first two innings, highlighted by Hackett’s opposite-field grand slam in the second. “I’m really happy for her,” Sullivan said. “We expected that. She has missed a lot, but she’s just such a threat at the plate. I’ve always said that to be a great player, you have to do something big under pressure, and she obviously did that for us.” Purdue would pull within one in the fourth, scoring two runs to make it 7-6, but Guy threw three scoreless innings in relief of Gay to give the Illini the win in the rubber match. “We’re excited about how we’re playing,” Sullivan said. “The offense has come alive. We’ve been inching back weekby-week. We’re now approaching every inning, both offensively and defensively, from an aggressive standpoint.”

Women’s tennis Illinois downs Purdue in last home meet Illini struggle with shaky play against Sunday’s high winds finishes regular season with win BY STEPHEN BOURBON STAFF WRITER

BY STEPHEN BOURBON STAFF WRITER

The Illinois women’s tennis team is playing its best tennis at the right time. The Illini took care of business at their last regular season match Sunday at Purdue, winning 5-2. This was the 11th win for No. 21 Illinois (15-6, 9-2 Big Ten) in its last 12 matches. For No. 29 Purdue (14-6, 6-5), it was the second loss on the weekend, as it fell to Northwestern on Friday, 5-2. “I’ve thrown out challenges to these girls all season,” Illinois head coach Michelle Dasso said in a press release. “They’ve responded every time.” Illinois swept the doubles matches to get on the board early. The pairing of Amy Allin and Rachael White clinched the doubles point for the Illini, beating Lynda Xepoleas and Daniela Vidal, 8-4. At No. 1 doubles, the No. 59 ranked duo of Marisa Lambropoulos and Melissa Kopinski won its fifth straight doubles match together, 8-2. At No. 3 doubles, Allison Falkin and Chelcie Abajian closed out their regular season with a win, 8-6. The pairing finished the year with an 8-2 record when playing together. In singles, Allin clinched the victory for Illinois in her last regular season match. Abajian and Lambropoulos also pulled singles wins for Illinois in the No. 3 and No. 6 spots, respec-

tively. Only Falkin and White dropped their singles matches for the Illini. All but one of the singles matches went to three sets in a competition that lasted four hours. The win for Illinois ruined Purdue’s senior day festivities, as the Boilermakers recognized seniors Jennifer Rabot, Kay Kay Magi and Anna Dushkina. Rabot beat Falkin at No. 1 singles to win her last match at Schwartz Tennis Center. Illinois now has won eight in a row in the all-time series against Purdue, with Sunday’s win knotting up the overall record at 27 wins. The Illini sit in third place in the Big Ten standings, behind only No. 12 Northwestern (17-7, 10-1) and No. 14 Michigan (176, 10-1). The Wildcats and Wolverines each clinched a share of the Big Ten regular season title with victories this weekend. Looking ahead to the Big Ten Tournament, Northwestern will have the No. 1 seed over Michigan as a result of the head-to-head tiebreaker. The Wildcats beat Michigan 4-3 on April 8. Though the tournament starts Thursday, Illinois will have a first round bye and open play Friday at the No. 3 seed. The Illini beat No. 18 Nebraska 4-3 on March 24, giving them a head-to-head tiebreaker advantage over the Cornhuskers (233, 9-2).

MICHAEL BOJDA THE DAILY ILLINI

One of two seniors on the roster, Dennis Nevolo played his final regular season match at Atkins Tennis Center against Purdue. Nevolo lost his doubles match but won his singles match Sunday.

The Illinois men’s tennis team battled a scrappy Purdue squad on senior day at Atkins Tennis Center. A chilly 55-degree day with winds around 20 miles per hour and gusts over 30 miles per hour caused sloppy play from both sides Sunday, as the Illini (14-7, 8-3 Big Ten) pulled through for the 5-2 win against the Boilermakers (10-15, 2-9). “It was never going to be pretty tennis on a day like today,” head coach Brad Dancer said. “We were right on the cusp of playing inside, with 19, 20 miles per hour winds. It’s as extreme as you can play in the Big Ten.” “At times, it was unplayable,” senior Dennis Nevolo said. Illinois started strong, winning two of three doubles matches to earn the doubles point for just the second time in its last five matches. Amidst the strong start, the upset of the day occurred when Purdue’s No. 73-ranked pair of Aaron Dujovne and Diego Acosta downed the No. 20-ranked combination of Illinois seniors Roy Kalmanovich and Nevolo 8-6. The seniors found their revenge in singles, each earning victories in their final career match at home. No. 30 Kalmanovich beat Acosta 6-2, 6-4, while No. 7 Nevolo had to work for his victory, beating Mark Kovacs 7-6, 4-6, 6-3. “There were moments where I thought I played really good tennis,” Nevolo said. “I just kind of simplified things at the end, and once I just focused on spinning my serve in and looking to hit forehands, it really simplified

my game and I thought I played well down the stretch.” Junior Bruno Abdelnour earned Sunday’s match-clinching victory for the Illini, winning 6-4, 6-3. Freshman Tim Kopinski also scored a singles victory for the Illini, winning at the No. 4 spot, 6-2, 6-3. Despite the win, Dancer appeared unhappy with his team’s lack of consistency and mental toughness in the match and the season as a whole. “This is our (22nd) match and we’ve yet to play a complete match,” he said. “Until we do that, we’re going to continue to wonder why we’re third in the Big Ten going into the tournament. “This is not an acceptable standard for us, in terms of the way we perform as a team throughout today. I know I sound like a broken record, but we’re better than what we’re showing out there.” Dancer referenced freshman Farris Gosea’s 11-9 tiebreaking loss in the third set, when he hit a tennis ball about 100 yards out of the courts in frustration. Gosea came back and forced a third set after dropping the first, 6-2, but was unable to get the clinching point to take the match. “The way (Gosea) handled himself at the end of the match is not indicative to the level he is capable of competing,” Dancer said. With the Big Ten Tournament next week, Illinois will need to be at its best in order to make the deep run they are hoping for. “We need to beat each other up in practice,” Nevolo said. “We just got to play tougher. This team has lacked consistency and mental toughness, and if we can find that we can beat a lot of good teams.”
