Exam canceled after students distribute information online BY EMMA WEISSMANN STAFF WRITER

When an instructor decides to reschedule an exam, students may be relieved that they have a few extra days to study. But for the 600 students in Chester Brown’s MCB 247 lab, they’ve gained more than a few extra days; they now have a final exam that’s almost twice the original length. Last week, a student alerted Brown that classmates who had already taken a lab practical the previous day were using Facebook to share information about test material. Brown canceled the exam on

Tuesday while it was still in session. All students’ scores, regardless of when they took the test, were thrown out, according to campus spokeswoman Robin Kaler. “Apparently, in this course, some group of students had created a Facebook group to share information and discuss course topics,” Kaler said. “At some point before this test, apparently some students had decided to morph it into a cheating site (after) they had taken the exam themselves.” Kaler said students posted the ques-

An alleged cheating incident on Facebook that surfaced last week has again brought to light the issue of a link between social media and cheating. Since the boom of the Internet in the new millennium, University students and faculty have been adapting to classroom challenges posed by the Internet revolution. Robert Baird, associate director for CITES’ academic technology services and professor of media and cinema studies, said he thinks technological change

has raised academic concerns in the past, and the Internet revolution is no different. “When books first took off, philosophers were concerned that it was going to destroy our memory because now it’s all in books,” Baird said. “We have those same kinds of conversations now. But the progressive answer to that is the quick retrieval of information is not the same as wisdom, skill or craft. As long as schools keep trying to teach skill and craft, students can’t look that up.”

C-U hosts Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon Wind, rain and cold temperatures tested the determination of nearly 20,000 participants BY STEPHEN BOURBON STAFF WRITER

The cheers never stopped. The runners of the 2012 Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon started at 7:00 a.m. on a cold, wet morning on First Street and continued all day until 2:30 p.m. when the last runners crossed the 50-yard line of Memorial Stadium. “It felt great,” said Les Cotton, Champaign resident. “It was such a time commitment, training every day for 18 weeks.” Throughout the 26.2-mile course, spectators lined up on either side of the road, giving encouragement and cheers to friends and strangers alike. Even after entering Memorial Stadium, runners that already finished stayed and filled the sidelines of the course, pushing their fellow runners to make it the last 50 yards. In addition to the marathon, the weekend’s events also included a 10K run/walk, a 5K run, a half marathon, a youth run and

a wheelchair marathon. According to a press release, the 19,936 total entrants in the various events topped last year’s turnout by more than 1,300. The number of participants has increased every year, from 9,715 in 2009 to 14,700 in 2010 and 18,594 in 2011. The participants hailed from 48 states and represented 11 countries. Jason Lokwatom from Ngong Hills, Kenya, was the first to finish the marathon with a time of two hours, 22 minutes and 46 seconds and collected the $2,000 prize for being the first overall male. The highest-finishing female was Jackie Pirtle-Hall from St. Charles, Mo. She finished 11th overall and posted a time of two hours, 43 minute and 52 seconds, also earning $2,000 for the top finishing female. Both times surpassed last year’s winners by a wide margin; Lokwatom’s time was almost four minutes faster, while Pirtle-Hall’s time was over nine minutes faster. On a day of drizzling rain, 20-mile-per-hour winds and tem-

peratures in the 40s for much of the morning, Rachel Wright from Lincoln, Ill. said the last part of the marathon was the ultimate test of determination. “It was just great to have the accomplishment,” Wright said. “The last two miles were torture, but I made it.” For Cotton and Wright, this marked their first marathon, while other participants were veteran marathon runners. 55-year-old Barb Dumke, 55, of St. Louis, finished her 11th marathon Saturday. She joined a track club in St. Louis and got together with four of her friends and has been running ever since. “It’s really, really good to finish,” she said. “I’ve been in 11 marathons, and this one was just as fulfilling as the others.” Cotton, Wright and Dumke all said they planned to run another marathon in the future. “I’m not done,” Dumke said. “I’m going to keep running marathons as long as I can.”

CHEATING FROM PAGE 1A tions and answers they remembered from taking the exam. Brown’s class syllabus includes a section about academic integrity, saying, “Science cannot exist without honesty. The faculty and staff of MCB 247 require students, as scientists-in-the-making, to hold the highest standards of scientific and academic conduct,” stated Brown’s class syllabus under a section entitled academic integrity. “On all exams, the answers that you turn in for grading must be your own, formulated during the exam from your own understanding of the material and without any supporting information, be it written, verbal or electronic.” The exam was worth 15 percent of the total grade for the class. Because the exam was cancelled, the material will now be included in the fi nal exam May 8, Kaler said. “The plan is to incorporate this content into the fi nal exam,” Kaler said. “So the fi nal exam had been expected to take about an hour and a half to two hours, (and) now it will take two and a half to three hours to complete.” After Brown stopped the prac-

Monday, April 30, 2012

tical, an e-mail was sent out explaining that it was cancelled “due to a reported violation of campus academic integrity policies” and that the violation was “under investigation by the college.” Brown could not be reached for comment, and students and teaching assistants were advised not to comment on the investigation. However, Karen Carney, associate dean of LAS, said it is the instructor’s job to act as a “factfi nder,” and the college does not get involved until later in the process or if there is a student appeal. “I pretty much serve as a resource to faculty who might contact me about our academic integrity,” Carney said. “I oversee the process, but I don’t personally investigate cases. That is done by the instructor.” Carney said an instructor fi rst submits a letter of suspicion to the student or students involved, who then have time to respond. The instructor decides on a penalty, and if the student decides to appeal, the college or department will become involved. Penalties for violations of academic integrity are outlined in the Student Code and include a written warning, a reduced grade on the assignment and a failing grade for the course,

among other consequences. On occasion, a student may be dismissed from the University on a repeat offense. Lt. Roy Acree of University police said the department was not contacted in reference to this incident and have not arrested anyone on the basis of a violation of academic integrity. “Now that’s not to say that we would never do that,” Acree said. “We have been used to investigate certain activities on campus that aren’t necessarily crimes because we do have experience interviewing people ... Usually that’s (academic integrity issues) handled at the unit level or the campus administration level.” In 2011, the University’s Senate Committee on Student Discipline reported 465 violations of academic integrity, resulting in only one dismissal from the University. The reports of academic violations in 2011 were well above the 243 cases reported in 2010 and the 107 cases reported in 2009. Carney said she thinks that the rise of social media has “created new ways of sharing information for good as well as for more negative,” but she said couldn’t specifically point the fi nger at Facebook for aiding student cheating.

Businesses on Green St. get help in living up to their name BY PULU WANG STAFF WRITER

In an effort to encourage Green Street businesses to “go green,” Students in Free Enterprise, or SIFE, held the second annual “Go Green on Green Street” last Friday. Thirty booths and interactive activities such as bozo buckets, fi shing and a scavenger hunt were setup along the street to educate students about environmental sustainability. Each booth offered prizes and an interactive opportunity for students to learn about the various aspects of going green. The event addressed issues such as energy efficiency, green business, pollution prevention, recycling among many others. “The main purpose of the event is to kind of raise awareness of different green initiatives,” Ben Miller, president of SIFE and junior in Business, said.

In the last few months, students in SIFE have approached Green Street businesses to try to implement efficient energy practices such as faucet aerators and exit signs that use LED lights. Students have also promoted environmental sustainability by encouraging these businesses to commit to “Green Pledges.” “A lot of booths are either green initiatives, like organizations going green, or an activity that people can actually go green. So we have water conservation awareness, we have how to recycle. This is one example of one of the businesses that are taking green initiatives kind of showing how students can go green, how people of the community can take this back to their lives,” Miller said. “We are trying to make this as interactive as we possibly can.” Forty SIFE members helped prepare for the event, in addi-

tion to about 100 volunteers from external organizations. “The main purpose is to have a one-day event to show in one day we made this much difference,” Miller said. “If you take this everyday, this is a huge difference it can make.” Guilherme Namindome , junior in Engineering, said he is helping spread awareness about going green with the Illinois Business Association, or IGBA, by designing some of the booths. “We wanted to know how important it is to be green, how important it is for a business to be green,” he said. Olivia Gordon , freshman in ACES, said she is a member of Little Green Shots, a new registered student organization on campus that visits elementary schools in Champaign. “We teach primary school kids to set up green culture for their family and friends,” she said.

Susan Parenti, left, instructor at the School for Designing a Society at the Independent Media Center in Urbana, pokes Mark Enslin, founding member of the school, during a performance on the Quad for their class on collaborative thinking and improvisation Friday. To end the class for the semester, students put on a series of “happenings” on campus, practicing group improvisation and spontaneous composition.

SOCIAL MEDIA FROM PAGE 1A While teachers can use programs such as SafeAssign, a website that detects plagiarism in students’ work, to prevent cheating, Baird said that sharing information is not a problem in itself. “As a professional, you collaborate with people all the time and ask for people’s advice,” he said. “Often it’s only in undergraduate education that people are supposed to work in isolation.” Although collaborating may benefit students, academic dishonesty often harms students. “The student who imagines that he or she is merely taking a

personal risk in deliberately plagiarizing might think twice if he or she realized that there is a collective cost that all students pay when individual students intentionally cheat,” said Alma Gottlieb, anthropology professor. But some say the responsibility also falls on teachers. “Teaching is a mentoring relationship. If you consult with students at the beginning, middle and end of their process, it’s not likely that they will turn in someone else’s work as their own,” said English instructor Joe Grohens. “If the only thing you ever see is their final draft, and you never got to know your student, you might get plagiarized papers.” Despite everything instructors

KIDS

may do to prevent academic dishonesty, Marvelas Hare, senior in LAS, sees the potential that the Internet has to enable more cheating. “There’s so much information at your fi ngertips that you can fi nd the answer to almost any question,” Hare said. Whether for good or bad, the Internet is having an impact on both the faculty and students of the University. “Let’s put it this way — it’s changed the game, both positively and negatively,” said journalism associate professor Eric Meyer. “Then again, so did computers and photocopiers — and, if you went back far enough, probably the telephone.”

Illinois governor proposes Approved by Springfield, Chicago enrollment plan up for review implementing cigarette tax to contribute to Medicaid funds URBANA-CHAMPAIGN SENATE

revised version includes most of the comments that the senates have addressed. “This, in some way, represents a turning point in the consultation about the enrollment management plan,” Tolliver said. “It represents some major change from the original report. The report is much, much less ambitious than the original, and as the task force comments indicate, ‘it is a plan that is much, much more in line with what the faculty of this campus has requested.’” She commented that the document shows the “shared governance” between faculty members and the University administrators. “I don’t think there will be a

lot of people getting up for controversy,” she said. “Some people will say that it is a victory for shared governance.” Tolliver added that the proposal for electronic surveys will also be requested for action tomorrow. The Institutional Research Board addressed the rules in which people can collect data, and the Urbana-Champaign Senate wanted to make sure that any survey sent out through the University would comply with any of the existing rules from the Board, she said. “It is a document that gives some guidelines about the unsolicited use of surveys through University emails, so it’s not related to email in general but other distribution of surveys and ques-

tionnaires to the students, faculty or staff who work on our campus,” she said. The main concern about the electronic surveys is that they will be about making people feel “bombarded by unsolicited surveys on their University email accounts” and to make sure that privacy is protected when people respond to the survey through their personal email accounts. The meeting is expected to have substantial discussion about the survey. Revisions to the senate elections for the student electorate will also be discussed to “establish orderly procedures and rules for the election of senators from the student electorate of the campus.”

CHICAGO — Whether successful or not, Illinois governors repeatedly have aimed at the same target for additional money to address the state’s financial gap — cigarette smokers. But for the first time, Gov. Pat Quinn has floated the idea of tying a cigarette tax hike to improving health care. The Democrat says a $1-per-pack increase would bring in nearly $700 million — including federal matching funds — to help close a $2.7 billion Medicaid short fall, with the benefits going

well beyond. The thinking goes like this: Raising the price of cigarettes gives smokers incentive to quit and deters young people from starting. Since there will be fewer smokers, the costs of treating smoking-related diseases should also go down. But the plan to essentially double the cigarette tax has raised questions about whether such a hike could indeed curb smoking, if it’s a sensible funding source as the number of smokers dwindles, and if it would simply drive smokers to buy cigarettes elsewhere.

No matter the medium, cheating still unethical O

dds are, we’ve all cheated, whether it’s handing down past exams or sharing information minutes before a quiz. Traditionally, we think of cheating as an information transaction from one person to another or a small group of people. This kind of sharing is private and low-key, making it difficult to catch. Even if a student shares the most miniscule detail about an exam or homework assignment, it is cheating. Yet these cases tend to be overlooked or not caught. But when it is, it means serious trouble for those involved. So when questions from a lab practical were posted to a 600-plus member Facebook group for a human anatomy and physiology lab course, MCB 247, the cheating was not going to go unnoticed. Finally, with physical evidence, there was no way this cheating would slip under the radar. Professor Chester Brown, who teaches the course, canceled the students’ grades for the practical and doubled the worth of the final exam upon discovering the Facebook page. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is currently investigating the violation, according to an email sent out to MCB 247 students. Cheating is neither new nor condoned, but the irresponsibility of posting the questions and their answers in a public forum like

Facebook is baffling. Why cheat in the first place? It only gives everyone else a chance to set the grading distributions higher, working against the cheater. But students do it in hopes someone will return the favor later. Is it worth the risk, though, when penalties for cheating can be as severe as expulsion? In the grade-determining weeks before finals, students may be pushed to cheat out of desperation. But even when it’s hard to find a way to succeed, students shouldn’t resort to cheating. Mitigating cheating is on the professors as well. If multiple students will be taking an exam at different times, then there should be multiple versions. This singular example is an outstanding case of extreme cheating, but it does serve as a message: The way people cheat is changing, so we need to update the way we monitor and stop it.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR THE CLOCKWORK MIND

It’s that time of year again: Juniors need to think about their futures JOSEPH VANDEHEY Opinions columnist

T

hat contrarian itch is acting up again. Everyone is supposed to be talking about seniors this week. Seniors graduating, seniors leaving, seniors heading off into the world. But I can’t do it. If I write about seniors today, there’ll be enough sappiness in the air you could tap it and make syrup. Instead, juniors — you are the target of today’s column. Your time to be the focus of all this affection is coming soon enough. You too will get to don those funny hats and off-sized robes and be lauded before your family and peers. Have you thought about what you are going to do after all of that? Have you, perhaps, considered an exciting career starting in graduate school? Now is a good time to think about it, if you haven’t already. Whether you have or haven’t though, I caution you to take care in the reasons for your decision. Much of the attention has gone to economic factors in recent years. With the economy struggling, graduate schools have seen huge numbers of applicants from students seeking an alternative to the weak job market. And, since a graduate degree can offer the opportunity for a better job and a higher salary, it seems like a great bargain. At the same time, the threat

of student loans and the pressure to make money now pushes the thought of graduate school away from many who would benefit from it. No one, after all, got rich while going to graduate school. (A few did get rich by dropping out of graduate school to found multi-million dollar companies, however.) These and other factors have contributed to a media through-line that makes it seem as though the decision to enter graduate school should depend primarily on economic factors. They are important, to be sure, but I honestly have pity for the poor sob who stepped into graduate school with the sole goal of making more money in their eventual job: For the uninterested and unprepared, graduate school is several years of torture, the likes of which could teach the Spanish Inquisition a thing or two. When I mention that I’m four years into my doctorate with possibly another two left to go, people are shocked that I could endure so many additional classes, tests and thesis papers, and they are appalled that I would inflict it all upon myself willingly. But it’s that very passion for knowledge that makes a far better determinant of one’s success in grad school. In college, you are expected to be able to work and study independently, without being guided every step of the way. In grad school, you are expected to educate yourself far beyond the purview of your classes, initiating your own studies. Have you ever spent your evenings lost deep in your

notes, wanting to understand it all better, even without a quiz or test looming over your head? Have you ever lamented the slow pace of class and rushed ahead on your own? If so, a successful career in graduate school might be in store for you. With a passion to learn, graduate school can provide a constant supply of knowledge and opportunities to feed that passion. Without it, graduate school will give an near endless list of tasks to perform that you simply have no desire to do. So, if you are deeply interested in your studies, curious about learning more, or hoping for a career that requires said knowledge, then I encourage you to poke around regardless of your financial situation. Visit a grad school adviser in your department, and try to send off a few applications in the fall. You might get that perfect offer that fits all your needs. Graduate students might not get rich, but with luck we don’t go broke either. The most important thing to remember for those who love to learn is that college, and even graduate school, need not be the end of learning. There’s always courses offered at the local community college and good books on the shelves of your local bookstore and library (Dover picks up a lot of great out-of-print texts for cheap). And — should the itch to learn remain strong throughout your life — there’s always a chance of returning to college to claim a new degree.

UI needs to negotiate in good faith with unions If we do have labor conflict on the University campus next academic year — and it is beginning to look inevitable — we will know where to look for the source of the problem: The administration is refusing to negotiate with the unions. According to the April 19 NewsGazette, the Illinois Education Association local representing visiting academic professionals (VAPs) is not only anxious to continue negotiations, which they feel

are close to a resolution, but also willing to make concessions. Yet after refusing for almost a year to extend last year’s 3 percent salary program to the unionized academic professionals (which looks suspiciously like victimization for having the temerity to organize), University negotiators have now declared an impasse and refused to negotiate any more. One sticking point seems particularly strange: It is the union insisting that merit should be one part of the salary package for next year, while the administration is calling for a standard raise without regard to merit. These are provocative positions.

With contract negotiations pending with both the graduate employees (GEO-AFT) and the clerical workers (AFSCME), none of this bodes well for labor peace on campus. There is a solution. Open, democratic collective bargaining is both a hallmark of a democratic society and a fundamental democratic right of all workers, even those on the University campus. The University should sit down and bargain fairly with its employees. We will all suffer if they do not. JIM BARRETT, professor of history and vice president of Campus Faculty Association

Hate crimes highlight need for society to use critical eye REBECCA ROSMAN Opinions columnist

L

ast week, Alton Hayes III, a black man, was charged with attempted robbery, aggravated battery and a hate crime after he and a 15-yearold juvenile, whose identity has not been released, attacked a 19-year-old white man, pinning him to the ground, forcing him to empty his pockets and punching him in the back and the head numerous times. According to Hayes, the victim was chosen in response to his anger over the death of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teenager killed by George Zimmerman, a multiracial Hispanic neighborhood watchman, in Florida this past February. Since the Martin scandal erupted, which brought further national attention to hate crimes and racial profiling, two similar backlash incidents have occurred, one in Mobile, Alabama and another in Gainesville, Florida. How did we get here? And what have we learned? I’m taking a course on hate crimes with Chris Benson. It should be a heavy topic, and often times it is. From discussions on the construction of difference, the trickle down effects of hate speech and examples of brutal physical violence and murder, there are times when the facts have been difficult to digest. But through use of humor, personal examples and strong encouragement of class discussion and questions, Benson has made the classroom an environment for students to feel comfortable sharing their own experiences. If there’s one thing that I’ve learned, it’s that a hate crime

is motivated by something far more complex than hate. In our first week of class we learned that under the legal definition of a hate crime, there must be proof of perpetrator bias based on things like ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality or religion. In the case of Detroit Tigers player Delmon Young, who was arrested on hate crime harassment charges Friday, the bias was a collection of anti-Semitic epithets targeted toward a group of tourists . But there are many cases where bias under the legal definition is less ostensible. Where does bias come from? From the individual? The media? Where does it start and where does it end? And what larger messages does an individual hate crime send to the public? Learning about the psychology of hate, I’ve come to understand that bias is often rooted in narrative. Narratives are powerful stories that come from our family, peers, education, religion and media. They send a particular message, which serves the interests of a particular group. In relation to bias, that message means the valuing of one group comes from the devaluing of another. So perhaps the criminal justice system has allowed us to capture individual cases, but how do we conquer these greater narratives? Narratives that have been constructed over centuries, narratives past down

from generations, narratives which we think are facts. There’s a quote on the marquee outside the church where I used to wait for the bus every morning. It reads, “Unanswered questions are far less dangerous than unquestioned answers.” It’s time we start asking more questions. Nearly everything we read or hear is a narrative, from a history textbook, to the front page of The New York Times. Not all of them are ostensible; in fact, many of the most important ones don’t read like narratives at all. Swastika tattooed, crossburning, hatemarching groups whose mission of hate reads loud and clear are bothersome, but the real fear lies in speech where the coded message is far more subtle. When Rush Limbaugh calls Sandra Fluke a “slut” on his syndicated radio show, when Newt Gingrich refers to Barack Obama as the “food stamps president,” when a friend at a party slips some “ironic racism” into the conversation, the message is so subtle that the need for questioning becomes lost. In all these cases, the greatest force is the society that allows such stereotypes to persist. It is imperative that we take a critical eye and speak out where we see points of difference.

If there’s one thing that I’ve learned, it’s that a hate crime is motivated by something far more complex than hate.

COULD BE YOUR AD ‘MAN UP, BAND UP’

Q-AND-A: RAPPER KING LOUIE

WITH KING LOUIE

NEW YORK TIMES CROSSWORD 1

ACROSS

PHOTO COURTESY OF PHILL ROCHE

‘Too Cool’ rapper talks life on indie rap label, meteoric rise of Chicago’s hip-hop movement JOE WARD Staff writer

If

the burgeoning Chicago rap scene had something of an elder statesman, it would be King Louie. A product of the city’s “Dro City” neighborhood, King Louie has paired his round-the-clock work ethic with a one-of-a-kind flow that allows Louie to duck and weave around a beat and deliver a memorable line at the most opportune time. His music has been a fixture of the streets he calls home, but thanks to a record deal and high profile collaborations with other rising Chicago stars (most notably the controversial Chief Keef and the laid-back Rockie Fresh), Louie’s Internet presence is on the rise. In this email interview, I talked to Louie about the resurgence of Chicago rap, life on an indie rap label and exactly what “band up” means. (Thanks to Phillip Roche for the interview opportunity!)

The Daily Illini: King Louie, you’ve been signed and have been getting a lot of press. News about Lil Durk and Lil Reese getting signed to Def Jam just broke, and Chief Keef is getting remixed by Kanye West. Why is the Chicago movement blowing up right now? King Louie: I signed with Lawless

and shortly after we released the “2 Cool” video and remix with 2 Chainz and Red Café. A lot of people were saying that was one of the tipping points for the buzz reaching the masses. But the truth is that I’ve been working hard for a long time. With artists in Chicago becoming more unified and agreeing to work with each other much like Atlanta and other cities, it has brought much more attention to Chicago. The main reason for Chicago blowing up right now is this new sound that is unfamiliar and (the) unity among those influential in Chicago’s music scene.

DI: Some have critiqued the Chicago scene for not having one particular sound, sort of like Southern rap or the old East vs. West coast and the different sounds they had. Do you think it is important for the scene to have a distinguished sound? Louie: Not really. Chicago is a

major market. We should have a very diverse music scene .... That’s why when people ask me what would I call this new sound coming out of Chicago .... I call it gumbo. It’s a mix of everything. While some of my production may be southern influenced, my music is very much diverse and dynamic.

Pitchfork, XXL, The Source and so forth. By signing with Lawless it has also opened up the opportunity for more travel, shows and other wmajor placement. The label is an independent with a major label budget. I’m on the road much more, too, out in Los Angeles recording and on the road for my shows, getting more bands.

DI: Do you have a release date for “Dope & Shrimp,” and how is that project coming along? You tweeted that you were in the lab with Young Chop (rising producer from Chicago); will he be featured on the album? Louie: We haven’t fi nalized a

DI: You release your own tracks, jump on other people’s tracks and release mix tapes constantly. How do you do it? Do you write/record every day? Louie: I try to keep a produc-

tive schedule while making sure it is realistic and organized. Over the last year, a lot of things have changed for me. My schedule is a lot busier for the better. Especially with traveling now, whether it be flying out to Los Angeles to record or going down to Austin to perform. I’m constantly thinking of things, I might be riding around in a car and throw my headphones on and just start writing. I don’t record every day, but I do record often.

DI: You are now signed to an independent label based out of Chicago. How has that changed you as an artist? Louie: Signing to Lawless has

allowed me to take my music from the streets to the masses. It has opened up the door for major placement. My music now is in The Fader,

ing back in forth in Chicago and Los Angeles. The project features my best material to date. “Dope & Shrimp” demonstrates my growth and progression as an artist and is reflected not only in my delivery, but production choices as well. There are a handful of young talented producers on the album. I don’t want to give away too much, though.

more time that goes into an album. Much more is tweaked on an album as well. Samples need to be cleared as well, and the mixing needs to be right. As an artist, when you’re putting out an album, you want to make sure all of the songs are perfect, and it is overall a fi nished product that will satisfy the people. “Dope & Shrimp” was going to be originally put out as a mixtape. Things been going well though, so we (are) going to release it as an album. We will have to stay in tune when things get closer to the release date. Hopefully we will be coming down there to play some shows on your campus as well.

NFL dreams a reality for Illini Four players selected in first 2 rounds of NFL Draft; 3 signed as free agents BY CHAD THORNBURG STAFF WRITER

The Illinois football team may have finished toward the bottom of the Big Ten standings, but in this weekend’s NFL Draft some players finished near the top. Six Big Ten players were selected in the first 50 picks of the 2012 NFL draft. Four of them were Illini. Defensive end Whitney Mercilus, wide receiver A.J. Jenkins, offensive lineman Jeff Allen and defensive back Tavon Wilson joined Iowa offensive tackle Riely Reiff, the highest conference selection at No. 23, and Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler at the next level. “I wasn’t surprised,” Allen said. “We have great players and if you look on film,

the film doesn’t lie. Obviously the teams that picked us saw that in us.” The Houston Texans selected Mercilus at No. 26, and Jenkins came off the board soon after him at No. 30 to the San Francisco 49ers. Thursday night marked just the third time in Illinois history that two players were selected in the opening round. John Bauer and Stan Wallace went in the first round of the 1954 draft and Kevin Hardy and Simeon Rice did the same in 1996. On day two of the draft, two Illini were selected within five picks of each other again when the Kansas City Chiefs drafted Allen at No. 44 and then Wilson capped off the night by going to the New England

Patriots at pick No. 48. “I probably surprised some people but I didn’t surprise myself because I heard a lot of different things as far as what round,” said Wilson, who was not invited to the NFL combine in February. “I’m just excited to get an opportunity to play in the NFL and I just worked as hard as I possibly could.” While the NFL Draft proved the Illini had talent on the roster, a look at the 201112 season might indicate otherwise. After a quick 6-0 start, the Illini dropped their fi nal six games, falling to fifth in the Big Ten Leaders division. Despite the losing streak, the Illini ended the season on a high note with a victory over UCLA in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. “We hit a point in the season where we lost the momentum, and any time you do that, it’s kind of hard to pick things back up,” Allen said. “But you can see from the start, you know we started out really hot,

you could see the talent across the board. A lot of great players.” The Illinois prospects were optimistic about their alma mater’s future and said there should be more Illini joining them in upcoming drafts. “There’s a lot of talent down there in Illinois,” Wilson said. “We just have to put it all together. “They have some great prospects for next year, they just got to do everything they can to be the best team they can be and I know they will.” Wilson added that Illinois’ draft record should help head coach Tim Beckman and his staff with recruiting. “Now if you’re a recruit out of Illinois, you probably want to go to Illinois,” Wilson said. “A lot of us weren’t projected to go in the top round before the season and then we did pretty good for ourselves.”

Coaches’ reactions

Houston Texans Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips on Whitney Mercilus — “People talk

about ‘one-year wonder,’ and I know he’s heard that a million times already, but if he’d stayed there and played again this year and did the same thing, he’d be a top-five pick. ... We know what he can do and we know the type of person he is and the kind of worker he is, so all those things, the arrow is pointing up.”

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh on A.J. Jenkins — “I don’t think

going into this draft there was a glaring need that we felt like we had to address, and therefore we felt like we’re taking the best player that was on our board … I’m glad that it went that way. I’m glad that we have A.J.”

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel on Jeff Allen — “We’re gonna take

a look at a couple different positions to see where he might fit. The young man has been a tackle all his life and then just to say that he’s gonna come in a be a guard, I don’t know that I would say that. You know, so we’re gonna let him compete and see where he fits.”

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichek on Tavon Wilson — “Some guys play in all-star

games, some guys don’t. I don’t know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don’t know who picks the Combine for that matter. ... We can’t really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can. If they’re there, they’re there. If they’re not, they’re not. If they play in an all-star game, we look at it. If they don’t, we don’t.”

Nintey-two conference wins in a row. Seven consecutive regu la r- se ason Big Ten championships. Six straight Big Ten Tournament championships. A 229-16 record when ranked in the ITA Top 25 since 2005-06. The Ohio State men’s tennis team had achieved an abundance of success over the past six seasons. Those streaks are history following the Illini’s upset of the Buckeyes in the championship game of the Big Ten Tournament. The No. 3-seeded Illini (16-7) captured the 4-3 come -from-behind victory over the No. 1-seed Buckeyes (31-2) on Sunday. Despite losing the doubles point and being down by a 3-1 margin, Illinois came back with singles wins from Stephen Hoh, Ross Guignon and Roy Kalmanovich to earn the win. “It’s absolutely special for the guys,” head coach Brad Dancer said. “These guys deserved it. They worked their tails off all season. It was most certainly our best match of the season and our best win of the year.” Sen ior K a l ma nov ich earned the match-clinching victory over the No. 6 nationally ranked Blaz Rola, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3. The third set was tied at 3-3, but Kalmanovich won the next game and the following two after to clinch the victory. “It’s hard to describe,” Kalmanovich said. “I had never been in that situation before, and to be a senior serving for the win in a 3-3 tie of the Big Ten Championship — it’s one of the greatest moments of my career.” Senior Dennis Nevolo was the fi rst singles match to fi nish, losing to No. 11 ranked Chase Buchanan, 6-2, 6-2. Freshman Tim Kopinski earned the fi rst point for the Illini with a singles victory, winning at the No. 4 spot, 6-3, 6-1. All six of the Ohio State singles players were ranked in the top 150, compared to just two for Illinois. “ We just absolutely brought it today,” Kalmanovich said. “Every guy top to bottom just came and brought his best out there today and we needed it.” In doubles, the Illini started off slow, as they have all season, losing doubles matches at the No. 2 and No. 3 spots. The No. 1 spot featured a matchup of two ranked pairs, with No. 1-ranked duo of Buchanan and Rola squared off against Nevolo and Kalmanovich, but the match was stopped at 5-3 because of the Big Ten

Men’s golf wins 4th straight Big Ten Championship BY JOHNATHAN HETTINGER STAFF WRITER

FRENCH LICK, IND. — The Illinois men’s golf team entered Sunday’s fi nal round of the Big Ten Championships leading second place Indiana and Michigan State by seven strokes. Despite the deficit, the Hoosiers fi red a six-under on the fi rst 15 holes and took over the lead on hole No. 12, where four Illinois players scored bogeys. On the back nine, Indiana was able to extend the lead as far as four strokes. With two holes and four golfers remaining in the Big Ten Championships, the Illini trailed the Hoosiers by three strokes. On his fi nal hole, junior Mason Jacobs hit an eagle to cut the Hoosier lead to one stroke. On hole No. 17, Indiana’s No. 1 golfer, Chase Wright, scored a triple-bogey to put the Illini up by two. On the fi nal hole, sophomore Thomas Pieters hit a birdie to extend the lead to three, and senior Luke Guthrie guaranteed Illinois its fi rst win of the season, its fourth straight Big

Ten Championship and his second consecutive Big Ten individual title, by sinking a putt for par. “It was tough, (Indiana) played well all day and just kind of fell apart at the end,” Illinois head coach Mike Small said. “We put some pressure on them, too, at the end. My hat is off to Indiana. They played great.” With Sunday’s victory, Illinois became just the fourth team in Big Ten history to four-peat and the fi rst since the Big Ten began scoring four individuals instead of five in 1986. The last program to win four straight was Ohio State, which won consecutive championships from 1982-87. Guthrie became the fi rst individual to win back-to-back Big Ten Individual Championships since current No. 1 golfer in the world Luke Donald won in 2000 and 2001 at Northwestern. The last Illini to accomplish the feat was Steve Stricker, the No. 5 golfer in the world . Guthrie was awarded the Lee Bolstad

Trophy after the meet for lowest stroke average on the season, which Donald and Stricker had previously won. “It’s pretty awesome to ever put your name into the same sentence as those guys,” Guthrie said. “They’re going to be Hall of Famers someday.” Guthrie has contributed to each of the four Big Ten Championship teams and has never fi nished lower than ninth at the conference tournament as an individual. “It’s a great feeling to stand up here and get that big trophy and put on the hats and T-shirts,” Guthrie said. “It’s a great feeling to see your competitors out there clapping for you. It’s something special.” For the fi rst time in the last four years, the No. 34 Illini were not the favorites heading into the Big Ten Championships. No. 25 Iowa was the highestranked team heading into the event, while No. 37 Indiana had momentum from defeating Illinois, Iowa and No. 48 Purdue

at the Boilermaker Invitational last weekend. Northwestern won the Big Ten Match Play Championships in February. “It feels great. This is special because we weren’t the favorite coming in,” Small said. “We’ve been the favorite the last three years, but this year we weren’t. To still pull it off and play like we did was very, very rewarding.” Illinois had to replace two graduating seniors from last year’s championship squad in 2010 NCAA Champion Scott Langley and 2011 Lee Bolstad Trophy winner Chris DeForest. Their freshmen replacements, Alex Burge and Brian Campbell , both contributed to the team’s score this weekend. Campbell fi nished in a tie for 15th at 11-over and helped pace the Illini with a one-under in the second round Friday. Burge placed 47th with a score of 26-over.

Illini fare well in NFL draft, but what about after?

DRAFT FROM PAGE 1B

Jenkins’ first purchase Jenkins already knows what his first purchase will be as a professional football player: a bathroom door for his mother. In the middle of Thursday night’s first round, Jenkins’ cousin George Solomon called him. “I thought it was a team so I answered the phone,” Jenkins said during his introductory press conference in San Francisco. “He was playing a game on me.” But Solomon’s call wouldn’t be Jenkins’ last for the night. “I went to the bathroom and San Fran called me,” he said. “I guess this time he was serious. The boy that cry wolf, I guess, so I didn’t even believe him. So I’m in the bathroom still, and he kicked the door down, literally like on the floor, and he threw me the phone. “My first purchase will probably be like buying my mom a new bathroom door. So that will be the first one.”

Reversing roles For Wilson, entering the NFL means an opportunity to provide for his grandmother. “Whatever my grandma asks for, my grandma’s gonna have,” Wilson said. “We have a great big house already. She worked hard for our house ... I’m just going to try to take as much stress out of her as I can. Just like she provides for me, I’m gonna try to provide for her. She’s a hardworking woman. She won’t stop working, but I’m just going to do the best I can.” Wilson’s grandmother raised him after his parents both died when he was young. He credits her with helping him get to the next level. “My hat goes off to my grandmother. She always just pushed me as hard as she could. She always tried to give me everything that she possible could so I wouldn’t have to go out and try to do it on my own. ... She’s a strong woman and now I’ll be able to provide for her.”

Second chance for undrafted Illini Fourty-one total Big Ten players were selected in the NFL Draft, but no Illini heard their names called after Wilson’s in the second round. However, that didn’t mean the end of NFL dreams for others. Three former Illinois players signed with NFL teams Saturday night after the conclusion of the three-day, seven-round draft that saw four Illini selected in the first 50 picks. Kicker Derek Dimke signed with the Detroit Lions, offensive lineman Jack Cornell with the Baltimore Ravens and running back Jason Ford will join firstround pick Whitney Mercilus as a member of the Texans. Cornell started all 13 games at guard last season and was one of the team’s senior captains. Dimke connected on 39-of-46 field goals and converted 89 extra point attempts in four years at Illinois. Ford finished 16th on the Illinois career rushing list with 1,962 yards and second in rushing touchdowns with 26.

MEN’S TENNIS FROM PAGE 1B Tournament rules. When a team clinches the doubles point, the third doubles match is stopped. The points surrendered Sunday were the first of the tournament for Illinois, after beating tournament host Northwestern 4-0 Friday and No. 2-seeded Michigan 4-0 Saturday. This marks the 18th Big Ten Championship in the program’s history for Illinois — the first since 2005. Only Michigan and the University of Chicago have more conference championships than the Illini. The Illini and Buckeyes have now met in six of the last seven Big Ten Tournament finals, with Illinois holding a 1-5 record in those matches. “We want to take this momentum (to the NCAA tournament),” Dancer said. “We’ll have a talk this week and try and regenerate the momentum and see what we need to do this week to keep it going.”

W

ith the 2012 NFL Draft all said and done, let’s take a closer look at how Illinois fared. Six different NFL teams drafted/signed seven Illinois football players, with the four draftees selected within the first 48 picks. The other three were picked up in the hours after the draft’s conclusion. Many of the so-called experts recap the NFL Draft by grading each teams’ selections. I will be doing the opposite, breaking down the Illini selectees and undrafted free agents on their new NFL homes.

Whitney Mercilus First round — 26th overall (Houston Texans) NFL team’s 2011-12 season — 10-6, lost in AFC Divisional Round The Good — Mercilus joins a defense that ranked near the top of every major category, including sixth in sacks with 44 during the regular season. Playing with Brooks Reed, Brian Cushing, Antonio Smith, J.J. Watt and Connor Barwin won’t hurt his development, as it allows the Texans to start him off doing what he does best: rush the passer. The Bad — Those same players mean there’s only so much playing time to go around, so Mercilus will look to state his case early as a starter on what should once again be one of the NFL’s best defenses. He also has to do that while adjusting to a 3-4 scheme and ignore the pressure of filling the void of Mario Williams. DARYL QUITALIG THE DAILY ILLINI

A.J. Jenkins First round — 30th overall (San Francisco 49ers) NFL team’s 2011-12 season — 13-3, lost in NFC Championship Game The Good — He may not have been expected to go in the first round, but that doesn’t mean he can’t play. For an offense that was one of the worst throwing the ball in the NFL last season, Jenkins brings his speed and catching ability to the 49ers, with head coach Jim Harbaugh looking to upgrade the vertical game with the former Illini deep threat. And it’s never a bad thing when you join a team that just missed the Super Bowl and retains a majority of its roster. The Bad — Some of the additions they made were at wide receiver. Joining him in the passing game are free agents Mario Manningham and Randy Moss, as well as returnee Michael Crabtree, who can draw attention away from Jenkins but by

Illinois' Tavon Wilson (3) tackles UCLA's Kevin Prince (4) in the 2011 Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl at San Francisco's AT&T Park on Dec. 31. the same token will more than likely keep quarterback Alex Smith’s attention to the where they’re at on the field.

Jeff Allen Second round — 44th overall (Kansas City Chiefs) NFL team’s 2011-12 season — 7-9, did not make playoffs The Good — Allen brings four years of experience as a starter and versatility to a Kansas City offensive line that could use another body. Though a tackle at Illinois, Allen has played every line position other than center and will join former Illini Jon Asamoah, who was drafted in 2010 and started all 16 games last season at guard. The Bad — Unfortunately for Allen, the Chiefs did not make the playoffs last year. As everyone knows, the Broncos added Peyton Manning and are the

favorites to win the AFC West.

Tavon Wilson Second round — 48th overall (New England Patriots) NFL team’s 2011-12 season — 13-3, lost in Super Bowl The Good — Another versatile Illini, Wilson played both cornerback and safety during his time in college. The Patriots are known for their savvy draft picks, and Wilson could turn out to be one. Expected by many to be drafted late, he became one of the six defensive players New England selected in the draft to improve a defense that was one of the worst in the NFL last season. The scary thing is that New England made it to the Super Bowl with that bad defense. The Bad — He’s a relative unknown. Belichick has hit it big before in the second round (Brandon Spikes and Rob

Gronkowski), while also striking out on a fair amount of guys you haven’t heard of.

Derek Dimke Undrafted free agent (Detroit Lions) NFL team’s 2011-12 season — 10-6, lost in NFC Wild Card Weekend The Good — Dimke does not possess a leg that can consistently make 50-plus yard field goals, but is very accurate. He made 84.8 percent of his attempts as an Illini, which makes him the all-time program leader in that statistic. The Bad — Jason Hanson has been the Lion’s field goal kicker since 1992. He is 41 years old, but unless a miracle happens, Dimke seems to only have been added to help shoulder the load in summer and training camps.

The 72-hole, three-day Big Ten Championships was held at the Pete Dye Course at French Lick in French Lick, Ind. It was the first year that the tournament had been played at a neutral site. The Big Ten Championships will be held at that course through at least 2014.

“This course was incredible. The views around here are just crazy,” Campbell said. “It’s a tough course but it can be had and we played it pretty well.” With its victory at the Pete Dye course, Illinois guaranteed its spot in the NCAA regionals for the fifth straight year.

Jason Ford Undrafted free agent (Houston Texans) NFL team’s 2011-12 season — 10-6, lost in AFC Divisional Round The Good — His size (5-foot-10, 251 pounds) and speed (4.7 seconds in the 40-yard dash at Illinois’ Pro Day) suggest that he can be effective as a rusher or blocking for a ball carrier in the NFL. He also entered the draft process as both a running back and a full back, which is the position the Texans signed him for. The Bad — There’s not much bad about his situation. Even though he underwhelmed during his senior season, he’s still a versatile player and is going to get a shot with a team that made the playoffs last season.

Jack Cornell Undrafted free agent (Baltimore Ravens) NFL team’s 2011-12 season — 12-4, lost in AFC Championship Round The Good — Not only did John Harbaugh text him a few weeks before the draft, the Ravens called him immediately after the draft concluded to crank out a deal. Cornell brings two years of starting experience to the NFL. He impressed in front of 34 scouts at Illinois’ Pro Day with results that would have rated well if he was invited to the NFL Combine. The Bad — Like Ford, there’s not much Cornell can dislike about this situation. He is also going to a team that made the playoffs last season and lacks depth at offensive line. The Ravens did make moves to shore up the line, drafting an offensive lineman as well as signing five, including Cornell. Dan is a junior in Media. He can be reached at welin1@illinimedia.com. Follow him on Twitter @WELINandDEALIN.

Regionals will take place May 17-19, and sites have yet to be announced. “(The win) should build some momentum and give us some confidence,” Small said. “Winning a tournament like this is huge, but we need to play better at regionals.”

Dissecting contenders, pretenders of NBA playoffs DEREK PIPER Sports columnist

T

he NBA playoffs are always filled with excitement. From Michael Jordan’s dominance in the ’90s to Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal’s championship runs in the early 2000s to LeBron James’ current quest for a title with everyone’s favorite team to hate, the playoffs are where history is written and legends are born. This year boasts a multitude of storylines. Aside from James’ attempt to no longer be a crownless king, there is plenty to watch for throughout the next month and a half. Do the Celtics have what it takes to give it one more run at raising the banner? Is Kobe too old to put the Lakers on his back for ring No. 6? Can anyone put a stop to what seems like an inevitable Thunder-Heat matchup in the Finals? These are the questions that occupy the minds of NBA fans — and ones that will soon be answered. Players and fans of each team would like to think their squad can go all the way, but the NBA playoffs are no place for a Cinderella. Seven-game series usually favor the best team, making for clear-cut championship contenders and pretenders.

be a failure for Miami. James was quick to tell the city he would bring them “not five, not six, not seven” championships, but the “Ringless Wonder” still needs one before he can talk about being Jordan-esque. This may be the year to change that. With Chicago’s Derrick Rose sidelined for the remainder of the postseason, the Heat have what seems to be a cakewalk through the conference. Oklahoma City Thunder — NBA fans have watched the youth of the league, led by Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, pester the basketball giants in years past. Now the youngest team in the playoffs has bigger goals in mind. Age will not play a factor for a team that went all the way to the Western Conference Finals last season. Durant has become one of the prominent faces of the NBA and the best scorer in the league, averaging 28 points per game. Durant also has what ESPN’s Skip Bayless calls the “clutch gene.” While some fans would argue for Bryant, there is no player I’d rather have with the ball in his hands with the clock winding down than Durant.

The Bulls title hopes were all but shredded after the news of Rose’s torn ACL. Aside from hopelessly rooting for their team to win it all without their superstar, Chicago fans will continue to search for answers as to why they have been so unlucky.

Contenders Miami Heat — The Heat is undoubtedly the most talented team in the Eastern Conference and probably the entire NBA. With three perennial All Stars, including two of the best players in the game’s recent history in James and Dwayne Wade, anything less than a title would

Pretenders Los Angeles Lakers — Even at age 33, Bryant is still one of the most productive and feared players in the NBA. His 27.9 points per game this season surprised many who began to write off the aging superstar. With Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum down low, the Lakers may have the best lowpost presence in the Western Conference. But recent playoff performances by Gasol have made him look more like a grass fairy than a basketball player. Los Angeles upgraded at point guard with the addition of Ramon Sessions, discarding tortoise-slow Derek Fisher.

Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose reacts after an injury during the fourth quarter of Game 1 in the Bulls’ first round playoffs series against the Philadelphia 76ers in Chicago on Saturday. The Bulls won 103-91. This will help in combating the likes of Westbrook, Chris Paul and Tony Parker, but it won’t be enough. Bryant is still an elite player, but he will need more help in the future if he wants match Jordan’s six championship rings. Chicago Bulls — The Bulls’ title hopes were all but shredded after the news of Rose’s torn ACL. Aside from hopelessly rooting for their team to win it all without their superstar, Chicago fans will continue to search for answers as to why they have been so unlucky. While it is true the Bulls survived in the regular season without Rose, posting an 18-9 record and ultimately securing the top spot in the East, it’s hard to imagine Chicago getting past the Celtics, let alone the Heat, in a sevengame series. Defense has been the key to success for the Bulls this season, holding opponents to the lowest total of points per game in the NBA. This will keep the Bulls alive but only for so long. Without their go-to scorer, the Bulls will struggle to make plays down the stretch, leading to their elimination.

Men’s track shows improvement at Penn, Drake relays BY BOB MERLO STAFF WRITER

Some familiar faces put together strong performances for the Illinois men’s track and field squad this weekend. The Illini competed at two meets, with the sprint crew at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia and the rest of the squad in Des Moines, Iowa, for the Drake Relays. The meets are the team’s last before postseason competition. The Big Ten Championships begin May 11. “We had some people that competed at a high level against national level competition,” head coach Mike Turk said.

The Penn Relays featured some of the nation’s top athletes fi ne-tuning their performances for the championship portion of the season. These top athletes couldn’t top Illini senior Andrew Riley, however. He took home the victory in the 110-meter hurdles, an event that he recorded the world’s second-fastest time in last weekend. “Andrew’s win was really a special win and race. For him to go back to the Penn Relays after winning the high jump in high school and then the hurdles,” Turk said. Riley crossed the fi nish line in 13.55 seconds, six-tenths of a

second ahead of fellow Jamaican Hansle Parchment. The hurdles are Riley’s specialty event, and he will look to capture his second national title in the event when he competes in his last national meet at the collegiate level later this spring. “The field he ran against was a really special field. If I remember right, there were four guys in that fi nal race that were at the NCAA fi nals indoors,” Turk said. Riley also served as the lead runner for the 4x100 squad of All-American senior Stanley Azie, freshman Brandon Stryganek and sophomore Josh Zinzer. Matched against some

of the top relay crews in the country, the Illini fi nished fifth with a time of 39.78 seconds, missing the fifth-fastest time in school history by hundredths of a second. “I was really pleased with them. I know they wanted to do a little bit better, but that’s really the first time we’ve run in a highclass field, we’ll see most of those teams at nationals again,” Turk said. “That experience will help them down the road.” Freshman Davis Fraker re-set his school record in the hammer throw at Drake with a distance of 63.60 meters. “He had a nice bounceback

in the hammer, he had a rough week last week and the season has been kind of up and down for him,” Turk said. “He bounced back and really competed well.” Senior Chris DeSilva fi nished fourth in the 3,000 meter steeplechase with a time of 9 minutes, 01.75 seconds, and he did it with one shoe on for most of the race. “He basically ran about a mile and a half with one shoe and his foot was all cut up,” Turk said. “That was really a nice race he ran with one shoe. It was gutsy, so I was super pleased with that.” Senior Colin Mickow won the 10,000 meters Thursday at Drake with a time of 29:48.72, a feat

that his older brother, Hunter, accomplished two years ago at the 2010 Drake Relays. “Colin certainly ran an outstanding race, it’s interesting that both him and his older brother have won the Drake 10K,” Turk said. The Illini have two weeks of training before the Big Tens, and their performances are progressing along with that timeline. “I don’t think we’ve hit our peak and I don’t think we did this weekend,” Turk said. “At the same time, you still see positive movement forward in performances across the board.”

Softball defeats Wolverines for 1st time since 2007 Illinois holds No. 22 Michigan to 3 runs in 3-game weekend series BY SEAN HAMMOND STAFF WRITER

With two victories over the weekend, the Illinois softball team defeated fourtime defending Big Ten champion Michigan for the first time since April 15, 2007. The victories were the first for the Illini in Ann Arbor since 2003. The Illini (23-23, 7-11 Big Ten) pitching held the No. 22-ranked Wolverines (3315, 13-5) to just three total runs over the

weekend. Pepper Gay threw two complete games and a total of 15 innings, surrendering just one run. “I really wish our fans at home could have seen all three of these games,” head coach Terri Sullivan said. “We really played Illini softball and they were exciting, pressure-filled games. I’m really proud of the team effort to take two on the road against a really well respected and strong Michigan team.” The series opener was a scoreless pitcher’s duel through seven innings. Illinois scored five runs in the top of the eighth, three of which came off of a threerun home run from third baseman Jess Perkins. Gay went the distance, giving up just one run in the eighth inning and

picking up the 5-1 victory. “(Throwing into extra innings) was nothing new for me,” Gay said. “We had runners on in every inning. Then we had a breakout inning, scoring five and got enough for the win.” “I just went up there thinking that I wouldn’t let (their pitchers) beat me,” again Perkins said of the home run. “I was really just looking to get a base hit, but it just happened to go over the fence.” The first game of Sunday’s doubleheader was another low-scoring affair. Illinois’ Jackie Guy surrendered a tworun home run to Michigan pitcher Haylie Wagner in the fourth inning. From the circle, Wagner held the Illini scoreless until the seventh when she surrendered

a solo home run to catcher Stephanie Cuevas. Illinois put two more runners on base in the inning but could not get the tying run across home plate, falling 2-1 to the Wolverines. Sullivan said she thought the MVP of the weekend was Cuevas, not only with her home run, but with her leadership behind the plate. In the rubber match, the Illini benefitted from Perkins’ three hits and two runs. She scored the go-ahead run in the second inning on a bases loaded fielder’s choice from Cuevas. The Illini would strand three runners following a double play. Perkins’ two runs would be all Gay needed en route to a 2-0 victory. “(Sunday) was a whole team effort,”

Gay said. “Our defense played well again and scoring the second run later on kind of stole the momentum.” In back-to-back weekends, the Illini have now taken two of three from two of the top teams in the Big Ten — Michigan and Purdue. They have just two more conference series against Penn State and Northwestern remaining in the 2012 season. “It shows that we’re playing our best softball now,” Sullivan said. “Everyone on our team is getting better. We’re focusing much better on both sides of the game. They’re great wins against two strong teams. You can kind of throw out the standings now and just play aggressive softball.”

Defense was a stronghold for the Illini in their three-game sweep of the Wildcats. leb said. “(Drasen) had a shorter leash because he was elevating pitches. It wasn’t so much that they scored a run or two, it’s just how they were doing it.” Despite the fact that the search for a reliable Sunday starter is apparently still ongoing, Hartleb said he would prefer to keep Milroy in the bullpen. Northwestern starter Zach Morton threw a complete game Sunday, giving the Wildcats pitching staff its third com-

plete-game loss of the weekend and seventh complete game of the season. “Any time you have a team that pitches like that, you have to battle,” Hartleb said. “You have to fi nd a way to keep scores low and not give runs up, but fi nd a way to manufacture them.” Center fielder Willie Argo scored the tying and go-ahead runs in Sunday’s contest, leading off both the sixth and eighth innings with hits. Justin Parr fol-

lowed both times with singles through the right side, advancing Argo to third before Brandon Hohl batted him in with a single in the sixth and with a sacrifice fly in the eighth. The trio had been hitless on the weekend prior to Sunday. “We found a way, I’m not sure how,” Argo said. “But that’s a sign of a good team, so hopefully that means that we’re maturing and growing up a little bit and just fi nding ways to win.”
