Illini running backs adjusting to new system BY SEAN HAMMOND STAFF WRITER

Donovonn Young is expecting big plays. Last season, the Illinois running back amassed more than 9 percent of his total rushing yards on one play. His 52-yard run in the Big Ten opener against Penn State was by far his longest of the season. He wants to see more of that from himself in his junior campaign next fall. And under new offensive coordinator Bill Cubit, it’s looking like he and his fellow running backs will get more chances to do so. “Last year was more of a spread offense,” running back Dami Ayoola said. “The running backs were more involved in the passing game than the running game. It was more of a pass-first offense and we had to protect more. (Cubit’s offense) is simpler, more involved in the run game with more downhill runs.” Ayoola said there have been fewer zones reads — with the quarterback deciding whether to hand the ball off or keep it — and more straight handoffs, where the running backs will know whether they’re getting the ball. Young feels this offense fits his style of play better because he does not consider himself a sideto-side runner. He likened Cubit’s offense to what Illinois ran during his freshman season under then-

offensive coordinator Paul Petrino. The running back position is one of the more experienced positions for the Illini. Young, sophomore Josh Ferguson and Ayoola all received playing time in 2012. The trio combined for nearly twothirds of the Illini running game, albeit the team compiled a lessthan-impressive 1,534 yards. Running backs coach Tim Salem is positive about the running back’s progression this spring. But unlike Young, he’s not worried about the big play. “Sometimes a 4-yard run is a good thing,” Salem said. “Quit thinking about the big 80-yard run and just get us the 4-yard run. If you do four-yard runs, four-timesthree, last time I checked is how much? By my math, it’s 12, and 12 gets a first down.” The emphasis for Salem and Cubit has been taking it right at the defense. There have been more downhill runs and more two-back runs. The tempo has also been increased under Cubit, and Salem has stressed to his running backs that they need to be the most conditioned players on the team. Young said he feels like he’s gotten upfield better this spring. “I’ve finally got my feet back, and I’ve been making cuts,” he said. “They look pretty sweet, but (the coaches) always harp on running downhill, and I think I did a

Late practice open Friday The Illinois football team will hold its 12th of 15 spring practices Friday at Memorial Stadium, and it will be open to the public. Practice begins at 5:30 p.m. and will end at approximately 7:30. Illinois football is expecting a large number of high school coaches to be in attendance as part of the Illinois High School Football Coaches Association Clinic. Friday’s open practice comes one week after the Illini traveled to Gately Field in Chicago for a practice last Friday. It also comes one week before the Spring Game, which will be held April 12 at Memorial Stadium beginning at 8 p.m. More online: Visit DailyIllini.com for more

is expected to be back on the field Friday. Salem was also impressed by Ayoola’s improved pass blocking, an undervalued skill for a running back. The Illini have four spring practices left (including the Spring

Citizen Police Academy resumes informational programs BY ARIELL CARTER CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The Citizen Police Academy will resume its informational programs on law enforcement April 11. The academy is made up of the Champaign County police departments and the Police Training Institute, teaching participants about topics ranging from K-9 demos to a police ride-along. Michael Schlosser, director of the Police Training Institute and academy coordinator, said the institute has been hosting the academy for 20 years, giving Champaign-Urbana residents the chance to take a closer look at how law enforcement works. One of the academy’s goals is to give citizens the chance to have a

better understanding of how the departments work, Schlosser said. “It’s not just about the citizens understanding the police,” he said. “It’s also about the police being able to interact with the citizens and see what’s important to them.” Academy meetings will be held weekly, discussing a different topic each evening. Urbana Chief of Police Pat Connolly has taught one session each year for 15 years and said his drug identification session gives residents a better understanding of street drugs and paraphernalia. In his session, he shows attendees an example of a drug commonly covered in the media to demonstrate what they are and how they’re measured.

“I show them things like how marijuana is packaged so that parents can see what it looks like and be able to recognize it,” Connolly said. Connolly teaches a similar session at the Police Training Institute, where students attend three sessions to absorb the information he teaches at the academy in one. Kimberlie Kranich, director of community content and engagement for Illinois Public Media, attended last year’s academy sessions to gain a greater understanding of how the police force operates and said she will encourage her staff to attend this year. “What they show (of police) on TV and how it actually is are two completely different things,” Kranich said.

twitter — @TheDailyIllini, @di_sports

She said building relationships with the police helps the community better understand what they report at WILL-TV. Kranich said she shared what she learned with WILL staff to improve its news coverage. “At WILL, we try to hold up a mirror to the community,” she said. “We don’t cover crime, but we cover its context, and to cover it we have to build relationships with people in the community.” Classes are held Thursdays at 6 p.m., and the instruction will be provided by offi cers of different agencies.

Gary Johnson, 2012 Libertarian presidential candidate, addressed about 200 students and community members at Foellinger Auditorium, giving the Libertarian perspective on U.S. policy issues. Johnson, a former New Mexico governor, spoke Wednesday about how government policies, such as gun control, gay marriage, the drug war, immigration and foreign policy, will affect University students. “You’re going to take it on the chin for everything that’s happening today. And it’s grossly unfair. And I think that you recognize it,” he said. He also spoke about his anger toward the two major parties. “I think Republicans, historically, have been pretty fiscally responsible, but I don’t think they’d know a civil liberty if it bit them on the ass,” he said. “Democrats are supposed to be good on civil liberties ... they’re not so good at it. And they couldn’t balance a checkbook to save their lives.” He said he believed that most Americans share this view and that those in office at the national level are detached from the citizens they represent. “There’s a big disconnect too, between those that are in office, running for office, and those that are actually just citizens,” Johnson said. “(Whether you are) registered either Democrat, Republican, Independent, Libertarian. For the most part, we’re just looking for good people with rounded ideas.” Judge Jim Gray, Johnson’s former running mate, also spoke at the event. He focused on the issues of the federal government’s power, the drug war, U.S. intervention in international conflicts, healthcare, education and the two-party system bogging down his party. “I deeply believed that had we been invited to participate in the three presidential debates ... then we would have probably won the election,” Gray said. “They (the

Corrections In the April 3, 2013 edition of The Daily Illini, the article, “ISS committee passes Illini Media Company student fee,” incorrectly stated that the Student Fee Advisory Committee has amended and passed the Illini Media Company fee. The Student Fee Advisory Committee previously recommended to amend a resolution to the Illini Media Company fee. In the April 3 edition of The Daily Illini, the story “Students arrested on drug charges” incorrectly stated that each student was charged with two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with an intent to deliver on school grounds. The story should have stated that the students were each charged with one count of manufacturing and delivering cannabis between 30-500 grams and one count of possession of an amount of a controlled substance.

Interstate 57 to undergo construction; IDOT to replace Windsor Road bridge BY ATOOSA SAYEH STAFF WRITER

The Illinois Department of Transportation District 5 will begin two reconstruction projects on Interstate 57 in Champaign County this month. IDOT plans to resurface the five miles from Olympian Drive in Urbana to the town of Thomasboro, ending about five miles from the Interstate 74 exit

for the University. “Part of the I-57 project is rubblization,” said Craig Emberton, Champaign County Regional Planning Commission member. “We are going to resurface about five miles south of I-57 because the present concrete is cracked and broken up.” He said the project will replace the cracked road with a smoother asphalt overlay to make traveling

easier and safer. The rubblization project will cost about $8.44 million and is being paid for by federal and state funds. Emberton said this project will likely be completed in late October. IDOT will also replace the Windsor Road bridge located on I-57 in Champaign this month. The replacement of the bridge will cost $2.4 million, also being paid by federal and state funds.

“The existing Windsor Road Bridge was constructed in 1963 and has reached the end of its service life,” said Kensil Garnett, the project implementation engineer for IDOT’s District 5. “The new bridge will be wider than the existing bridge to accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists.” Garnett said IDOT decided last summer to replace the bridge

because it became worn out from overuse and vehicles were required to abide by a lighter weight limit. “We’re replacing the bridge because it’s time to upgrade it, and it’s a development in the area,” said Alex Kedas, IDOT senior resident engineer. “The residents in the area would like to have bicycle lanes and sidewalks on the bridge, so to

Gary Johnson, the 29th Governor of New Mexico,, speaks about the Libertarian Party as party of his Live Free Midwest Campus Tour.

Christie Clinic officials announced Tuesday there is a shortage of volunteers for their annual 5K race April 26 and Illinois Marathon on April 27. Currently, Christie Clinic only has around half of the volunteers needed to execute a safe race, according to an email sent to previous marathon volunteers. Mary Anderson, volunteer coordinator for the event, said that they still need 275 course-team volunteers and 140 non-course-team volunteers. Anderson said course team volunteers are needed to monitor course intersections, and the Christie Clinic is urging people to sign up for these spots immediately. “This is the fifth year for the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon, and this is the fifth year we’ve had a volunteer shortage,” Anderson said in an email. “Having people posted at the course intersections is absolutely essential for the race to happen.” People who are interested in volunteering may go to illinoismarathon.com and click “Volunteers.”

Secretary Kerry begins tour of Middle East to broker peace after Israeli, Palestinian conflict begins anew BY BRADLEY KLAPPER AND JOSEF FEDERMAN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Evoking the U.S. shuttle diplomacy of decades past, Secretary of State John Kerry is making his third trip to the Middle East in a span of just two weeks in a fresh bid to restart long-stalled peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. Though expectations are low for any breakthrough on Kerry’s trip, which begins Saturday, his meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders represent some of the Obama administration’s most sustained efforts at engagement in a part of the world that has frustrated American admin-

istrations for the past six decades. “His diplomacy will be based on what he hears from the parties,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Wednesday. Kerry, she said, will be making clear that both sides have to want to get back to the negotiating table “and that they’ve also got to recognize— both parties — that compromises and sacrifices are going to have to be made if we’re going to be able to help.” Kerry is going at a precarious time. Overnight and into Wednesday, Israel and Gaza militants engaged in the heaviest fighting since a ceasefire was declared in November. The militants fired several rockets into southern Israel, and Israel

responded with its first airstrike in Gaza since the fighting subsided. But late Wednesday, Israeli forces shot and killed a teenage Palestinian protester during a clash in the West Bank. Kerry had planned to leave Monday for talks in London and then South Korea, China and Japan. But officials said he moved up his departure to Saturday for a first stop in Turkey, where he’ll seek to build on recent efforts by that nation and Israel to repair ties and coordinate on stemming violence in Syria. Kerry then travels to Jerusalem and to Ramallah in the West Bank, which he visited with Obama last month before returning to Israel a second time.

U.S. officials say Kerry is primarily interested in gauging what the Israelis and the Palestinians are willing to do to restart direct negotiations that have been mostly frozen for the past 4 ½ years. He’ll meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Trying to avoid raising expectations unrealistically, Nuland said Kerry’s trip isn’t the start of a new era of shuttle diplomacy, a concept that got its start with Secretary of State Henry Kissinger during his regular travels back-and-forth to end the 1973 Mideast War and secure peace between Israel and some of its neighbors.

Editorial Students, University community need warning about email scams, hackers when the problem is first noticed

O

ne CITES official called it the “worst scam I’ve seen since I started in 2005.” But while it’s just now being classified as one of the worst scams, the University community deserved to know about this latest string of attacks much earlier. Last Friday, the University sent a mass email to faculty, staff and graduate students, warning of false emails whose senders were pretending to be the University. But that might have been a few weeks too late by some accounts. According to the memo, there was an increase in the number of “malicious email attacks” in recent weeks. But the University didn’t send out an official correspondence until late last week. An email was sent only after several private companies’ email firewalls blacklisted the illinois.edu domain, even though it is an educational domain. Companies that control email security recognized University emails as fake and took action. But why did CITES wait until other companies took action to send out the email? The University’s response was too little, too late. The University could have prevented many headaches by notifying students when the increase in email attacks was first noticed. Phishing is nothing new; under such a scheme hackers lure email recipients into providing sensitive information, like social security numbers, credit card numbers, passwords and pin numbers, among other things. After that information is obtained, it is then used to target other unsuspecting users through that email account. Security filters serve as a safeguard for email recipients because those emails can be sent out through any account once you’ve obtained information and passwords. We understand that certain spam and phishing messages are going to bypass the CITES filters; there are too many unwanted solicitors that it’s unreasonable to expect CITES to contain them all. So it is ultimately up to the recipient to understand what constitutes a masked message, indicators of unauthentic logos, where links redirect to and what type of information companies or universities may ask you to disclose via email. There’s only so much CITES can do regarding spam messages. But it should have warned the campus when it first noticed the uptick in email assaults. Obviously there are many factors to consider when sending out a mass email, but even a friendly reminder to students, faculty and staff asking them to be aware of such false emails couldn’t have hurt, especially if the correspondence wasn’t sent until after the first week that phishing was suspected. Brian Mertz, communications director for CITES, said the department usually waits to make a decision on that until it determines the false emails are not just a random “one-day flareup.” But when the attack becomes more prolonged, stretching at least a few weeks, it’s not clear why CITES would wait to notify us. It never hurts to be too safe.

Fight for marriage equality, not gay marriage matt pasquini Opinions columnist

F

or the most part, titles can lead to vague implications. One can imply that the movie “Spring Breakers” is going to have something to do with spring break and the magazine “Good Housekeeping” might include some articles that are related to cooking or cleaning. But when you hear “the fight for gay marriage” what does that imply? To many it implies the demand of the LGBT community to have their marriages be recognized as equal to the marriages of their heterosexual counterparts, but to me it’s a total misnomer. When I hear about people fighting for gay marriage, I can’t help but feel that people are fighting for something separate from the traditional sense of marriage. Same-sex couples aren’t looking to get gay married, they just want to get married. Let me explain. Being a student here at the University of Illinois has taught me a lot. I’ve had the chance to meet a lot of fascinating people from a countless number of different backgrounds and it has helped me to shape a new perspective on the things that make us different from everyone else. Being on a campus that promotes inclusiveness and diversity has given me a little glimpse of what’s beyond white middle-class suburbia. Our differences make us stand out and mold us into the individuals we are. By being inclusive, we embrace those differences and help foster a community where no one is judged based on the color of their skin, gender, or who we love, but instead – in

the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. – on the content of our character. With the idea of inclusiveness in mind, it is important to note that gay people aren’t the only ones who are looking to legally get married. The LGBT community is as diverse as the general population. By calling this a fight for gay marriage, you’re leaving out lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender individuals as well. This movement for making marriage a more inclusive institution should be beneficial to the array of individuals who identify themselves within the LGBT community and not just gay people. When a fight for equal rights is pursued, a fight for inclusiveness follows. The LGBT community isn’t looking for something that’s separate but equal, they’re looking to be included with everyone else. In the broader scope, assimilating into the institution of marriage will show that while the LGBT community is still committed to maintaining its unique identity, they’re not that different from everyone else. They wake up, go to school, love their boyfriends or girlfriends, pursue their dreams, and aspire to settle down, get married, and maybe one day even have a family of their own. In the early 20th century, before there was a 19th amendment, women were unable to vote. A social movement followed and in 1920, the 19th amendment was ratified and women won the right to vote. Women weren’t necessarily fighting for women’s voting rights, but women’s right to vote. Semantics make a difference: women’s voting rights implies that there is fundamental difference between the votes of men and the votes of women. Whereas a women’s right to vote imlplies that their votes are just as signficant as men’s. African-Ameri-

cans were systematically discriminated against and denied some of their basic rights. But after a long fight, victory ensued when the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was signed by Lyndon B. Johnson. Both of these movements were a fight to be included in the same processes that everyone else experienced. These social movements didn’t create a divisive stigma but fought for the idea of liberty and justice for all. What I’m proposing is a rebranding of the movement for gay marriage. Instead of fighting for gay marriage, let’s fight for marriage equality. It’s widely accepted that marriage is a union between two people who love each other and the federal government needs to recognize that. In the words of President Barack Obama, “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law — for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.” Marriage equality embodies the idea of inclusiveness while maintaining unique individuality. It shows that we’re not just fighting for the rights of gay people, but for the LGBT community as a whole. It shows that while the LGBT community is a little more eccentric (go to Chicago Pride and you’ll know what I’m talking about), they’re still our brothers and sisters and our friends and family. Marriage equality implies that regardless of cultural differences, we recognize you as a human being who deserves the same rights as everyone else. Words matter. Titles lead to implications. I don’t think I’m overthinking this, I just want the title of the fight to match what’s being fought for.

Enough is enough: Pass stricter gun legislation Joanna Rothenberg Opinions columnist

T

he year 2 01 2 s aw horrifying mass shootings across the country from a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado to an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. In December, 58 percent of Americans wanted stricter laws surrounding the sale of firearms while only six percent believed the laws should be less strict. It seemed inevitable that 2013 would become the year for stricter sales on guns. But in March of 2013 only 47 percent of Americans felt there should be stricter gun control laws and 11 percent believed gun laws should be less restrictive. What does it take for the number to rise again? Another couple of mass shootings in an office building or school? We are only four months removed from the horrific shooting that took the lives of 20 children and six faculty members at Sandy Hook Elementary School and I can’t believe how quickly support for anti-gun laws is declining. (The National Rifle Association really makes for an amazing lobbyist organization.) Even Democrats, who are generally the biggest supporters of anti-gun legislation, went from an overwhelming 78 percent in support to a mere 66 percent since February. Since 1982, 49 of at least 62 weapons used in mass shootings were legally acquired — most of those being semiautomatic handguns. In 2012 alone there were 7 mass shootings. How do we force these shootings to decline? By passing stricter gun control legislation. By requiring exten-

sive background checks on those who make gun purchases. Not by requiring teachers to have guns in their classrooms as suggested by the vice president of the NRA. What’s frightening is that this idea is actually starting to take hold. South Dakota became the first state in the country to allow faculty to carry weapons at school in March. But I’m glad to say it seems like most University of Illinois students in teaching fields are against it. Sara Youssef, senior in LAS and current student teacher said, “There are more efficient and safe ways to ensure school massacres do not happen (than allowing guns in school).” Many students in an educational policy studies class seem to feel the same way: no guns in their future classrooms — they fear for the safety of the children. Yet the NRA believes the exact opposite. Hm, an organization that likes its guns is for selling more guns. Does anyone else fail to see the altruism? And what about urban schools? University of Illinois alumni Jessica Eggert works on the south side of Chicago. She also feels that arming teachers is not the solution and finds it distressing just how quickly Americans are changing their opinions on gun control. “There was an armed guard on duty at Columbine the day of the shooting, and it did nothing to deter the attack.” After saying she too would be concerned that guns could easily get in the wrong hands, she continued with, “If someone came into our school with a gun, I truly believe that me having a gun would only make the situation that much more volatile and dangerous.” Public opinion is declining so fast because of the NRA’s lobbying campaign. They are doing a fantastic job at derailing anti-gun legislation. The

president is pleading with Americans to demand action from their congressmen and I ask the same from you. With the NRA breathing down their backs, Congress is acting weak. They are afraid for their jobs. This isn’t about public safety, it’s about job safety. It’s pure politics. If Congress doesn’t force background checks, it’s because they care more about keeping their butts in Washington than the safety of the people who might one day be voting for them. Well, Congressmen, if a gunman opens fire on a school full of children, they won’t be there to vote for you in the future. That’s the harsh reality. Too bad Congress isn’t willing to take a vote with their heads down — anonymity: second-grade style. It seems to me that at this rate that might be the only way legislation will pass. Because how dare we try to change how accessible guns are. Congress is just scared to make the NRA unhappy. And for those who want to challenge me on cars killing more people? Not so fast. By 2015, gun deaths are projected to exceed traffic deaths. So in just two more years, people will stop using the car analogy (and find a different one). We must tell our legislators that we want stricter gun legislation. We want in-depth background checks. We cannot re-elect those who vote against stricter gun laws. Our best interests are not in their minds. Because as Romney made evident, it really is how many votes you get from constituents, not how much money is in your pocket. There is no “if another shooting takes place.” Time has proven over and over again that it’s “when.”

t he bookstore industry continues to spiral into the whirlpool of economic vestiges, it sheds off retail property to survive underwater. One week ago, Champaign-Urbana learned one of its landmark figures, Follett’s, succumbed to the strength of this tide, to one day be discovered at the depths of the ocean — somewhere between a Blockbuster VHS video and a buoying Twinkie wrapper. After nearly 75 years in campustown, Follett’s will close its store located at the intersection of Green and Wright streets May 29, shortly after the end of the spring semester. According to an interview with company spokesman Elio DiStaola the closing is “a business decision” due to the increase in the property’s value. “Over time, it became clear that it was no longer economically feasible to operate at this location,” he said in an interview with The News-Gazette last week. The price tag on the property, however, cannot alone be responsible for Follett’s going belly-up. This is evident because about a year ago, the store, which was once heralded as a chief textbook vendor, stopped selling course materials. Instead, it vends spirit wear, school supplies, small computer peripherals and a number of hit books. Not textbooks – you know why? Because when it comes to cutting corners so that our very thin, worn-out wallets don’t take a $200,000 hit, textbooks are the first to go. We all know exactly why this is: The issue of rising textbook costs is most staggering when considering the expenses of our education. To run through some numbers: Since 1978, college textbook prices have increased 812 percent. Eight hundred and twelve percent. According to Mark Perry, professor of economics and finance at the University of Michigan, “the nine-fold increase in textbook prices ... dwarfs the increase in the cost of medical services over the last three decades.” These inflated prices aren’t saving a dying industry from hemorrhaging money, though. As a matter of fact, they’re the death knell to a failing future. According to a study conducted by the National Association of College Stores, students estimate they spend $655 annually on required course materials, down from $667 two years ago and from $702 four years ago. Where we’re concerned, we couldn’t care less about keeping up with textbook prices inflating to the size of the moon. And as bookstores like Follett’s close down (because they can’t keep afloat in a business that asks for a littering of zeros before getting to the decimal) we’ll learn not to miss them. As humor blogger and columnist Alexandra Petri put it: “Absence does not make the heart grow fonder, where books are concerned. Seldom seen and soon forgot seems to be more likely to be the model.” A hairy root of the problem seems to be that textbook companies can charge just about anything, assuming students will feel obligated to pick up the cost – especially if professors make it required reading. But for years, this has not been a sustainable model. Now, we exchange books online for free, use Amazon to purchase books at half the price or just skip the reading entirely. Anything that avoids making out the $1,000 check. May the downfall of Follett’s be a marker of a changing marketplace for textbooks. And until more reasonable prices are met, “required reading” for my upper-level classes won’t get more than a chuckle from me.

Rutgers fires coach after abusive video surfaces BY TOM CANAVAN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Once the video went viral, Mike Rice’s coaching days at Rutgers were over. Now the question is whether anyone else will lose their jobs — including the athletic director who in December suspended and fi ned Rice for the abusive behavior, and the university president who signed off on it. Rice was fired Wednesday, one day after a video surfaced of him hitting, shoving and berating his players with anti-gay slurs. The taunts were especially troubling behavior at Rutgers, where freshman student Tyler Clementi killed himself in 2010 after his roommate used a webcam to spy on him kissing another man in his dorm. It also came at an especially embarrassing time for the NCAA, with the country focused on the Final Four basketball tournament this weekend. Rice, in his third season with the Scarlet Knights, apologized outside his home in Little Silver, N.J. “I’ve let so many people down: my players, my administration, Rutgers University, the fans, my family, who’s sitting in their house just huddled around because of the fact their father was an embarrassment to them,” he said. “I want to tell everybody who’s believed in me that I’m deeply sorry for the pain and hardship that I’ve caused.” Athletic Director Tim Pernetti was given a copy of the tape by a former employee in November and, after an independent investigator was hired to review it, Rice was suspended for three games, fi ned $75,000 and ordered to attend anger management classes. University President Robert Barchi agreed to the penalty. But on Wednesday, Rutgers referred to new information and “a review of previously discovered issues” as the reasons for the termination of the 44-yearold coach. “Yesterday, I personally reviewed the video evidence, which shows a chronic and pervasive pattern of disturbing behavior,” Barchi said in a statement. “I have now reached the con-

clusion that Coach Rice cannot continue to serve effectively in a position that demands the highest levels of leadership, responsibility and public accountability. He cannot continue to coach at Rutgers University.” The video shows numerous clips of Rice at practice during his three years at the school firing basketballs at players, hitting them in the back, legs, feet and shoulders. It also shows him grabbing players by their jerseys and yanking them around the court. Rice can also be heard yelling obscenities and using gay slurs. Several college coaches said they had never seen anything like the Rutgers video and it broke a cardinal rule: Never put your hands on a player. “Don’t tell me that’s the old way. That’s the wrong way,” said John Thompson Jr., the Hall of Famer who led Georgetown to the 1984 national title. Thompson, the father of current Hoyas coach John Thompson III, called the images “child abuse.” UConn women’s coach Geno Auriemma, winner of seven national titles, said “there is no line that could be drawn that would make that behavior acceptable.” The most famous case of a coach accused of abusing a player is the one involving Bob Knight of Indiana. The university put him on a zero-tolerance policy in 2000 after an investigation into a former player’s allegations that the coach had choked him during a practice. When a student alleged that Knight grabbed him later that year, Knight was fi red. Knight, who now works for ESPN, couldn’t be reached Wednesday. The Rice video drew outrage on campus and all the way to the capital in Trenton, with lawmakers and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie supporting the fi ring at the state’s fl agship public university. “This was a regrettable episode for the university, but I completely support the decision to remove Coach Rice,” Christie said in a statement. “It was the right and necessary action to take in light of the conduct displayed on the videotape.

care deserve much better.” Clementi’s family applauded the firing in a statement issued by the foundation named after their son. “All students require safe environments to learn and reach their full potential, and Coach Rice’s conduct has no place on a campus that is devoted to learning and fostering a sense of community,”

it said. “We know Rutgers is such a place, and, like all colleges and universities, it must not tolerate that kind of behavior.” State lawmakers want explanations from both Pernetti and Barchi on the initial decision not to fire Rice. Pernetti took responsibility for trying to rehabilitate Rice instead of firing him.

“Dismissal and corrective action were debated in December and I thought it was in the best interest of everyone to rehabilitate, but I was wrong. Moving forward, I will work to regain the trust of the Rutgers community,” he said. Pernetti said about 60 percent of the incidents happened in Rice’s first season.

NEW YORK TIMES CROSSWORD

PEOPLE TO KNOW

Industrial design professor Cliff Shin gives feedback on a recent competition entered by his students Andrew Haglund and Collin Akermann, both juniors in FAA.

Shin hopes industrial design will gain prestige from award STAFF WRITER

An international award in design excites assistant professor Cliff Shin, but not because of the personal accomplishment it signifies. He accepts recognition from students and classmates with gratitude, but his focus is elsewhere. Shin entered the A’ Design Award & Competition, an Italian showcase for designers from all over the world, with “Lollipop.” Described in his proposal as an appealing tongue cleaner for kids, the design was one of the 259 projects selected out of 4,500 submissions. Shin received one of the highest awards from the showcase and “Lollipop” joined the permanent collection in the Museum of Italy. Shin hopes that his award from the showcase will expose more students to industrial design, a program in the School of Art and Design that he said doesn’t receive enough attention at the University. The School of Art and Design has always been ranked among the best schools in the country for its industrial design program, Shin said. In fact, the industry news website DesignIntelligence slotted the University’s industrial design graduate program tied for seventh place in their 2013 national school report two weeks ago. But industrial design at the University remains unknown by most because it is overshadowed by other programs, Shin said. “Every time I see a newspaper or website that sponsors the school, everything’s about engineering,” Shin said. “But other programs and departments here at Illinois are reputable as well ... we have one of the oldest industrial design programs in the nation. But other programs miss out on the same amount of exposure ... that reflects in the number of students who attend, and that’s a little sad.” Shin emphasized that he did not want to bad-mouth engineering at the University in any way, acknowledging the success and prestige of the college. He has experience to back up his claims. Shin majored in manufacturing engineering as an undergraduate at Arizona State University, where he discovered industrial design at an exhibition. Originally set on

pursuing engineering, he said the experience was eye-opening. “In engineering, it largely felt like an approach was always given and I had to do what I was told,” Shin said. “But design was sold to me on three keywords: innovation, empowerment and creativity. That was powerful for me at the time and I thought, ‘OK, this is where I need to be.’” After graduating from Arizona State, Shin received his master’s degree in industrial design from Purdue University. He then worked at LG’s corporate design center in Seoul, South Korea, as a senior designer for appliances. Although the corporate environment became exhausting, Shin said he enjoyed teaching branch managers the design process for their products, an annual role that sparked a new sense of direction for him. Shin quit his job after five years at LG and eventually found his way to the University in 2010. Recently, Shin has collaborated with students and faculty on several interdisciplinary projects, a process that demonstrates how many ideas cannot survive without design, he said. Randy Ewoldt, assistant professor in mechanical sciences and engineering, received a grant with Shin for Sticky Pastes and Liquids for Arts and Technology, SPLAT, Mechanics. The project involved their research on integrating the state of fluid and solid materials. He said that Shin has contributed to product design, adding that each researcher brings a unique background to the project. “There’s certainly a hierarchy of creative brainstorming,” Ewoldt said. “Engineers don’t usually focus on aesthetics for a design study, and industrial designers don’t always depend their designs on scientific elements. There’s great diversity in the room on what’s feasible and possible.” Ewoldt said the grant for SPLAT came from the Interdisciplinary Innovation Initiative program, which stimulates interdisciplinary research and education across campus, according to the program’s website. Some of Shin’s other colleagues have recognized interdisciplinary research as well by organizing a grant of their own. Jamie Norton and David Jun, graduates in neuroscience and

engineering, contacted Shin in the winter to help design a device they developed with undergraduates. Their device, which they described as an array that can map out vibrational responses in space, worked but needed to appeal to users. Shin helped design several design proposals with them as they met in person once every other week over the course of the last four months. “We see it as a two-way street, where we leverage his skills with ours,” Jun said. “Shin’s really helped us get a sense of how designs relate to people’s emotions, and we try to achieve that with quantitative tools.” Between their meetings and constant emails, the group organized Focal Point, a grant proposal focused on the development of an interdisciplinary community for prototype control. “Our idea has been to talk to all these different groups because at some point it’s going to be important,” Norton said. “That was the main motivation behind the proposal, us asking ourselves, ‘How can we communicate with these different types of people, and how do they think about these kinds of problems?’” Jun and Norton are preparing a second proposal for Focal Point, which they said Shin has been integral in guiding by providing helpful feedback and committing himself to their project. They appreciate his eager and ambitious temperament, always pushing them to reach new potentials. Ewoldt added his approval of Shin as a teacher, who facilitated a design project in one of Ewoldt’s classes. Surprisingly, students were usually smiling, he joked. Shin said he enjoys teaching because he learns from the classroom experience as well, gauging what information and approaches students best respond to. But he ultimately hopes that others can share his passions. “When I say design, people relate to cars or Apple products and besides that there’s so much more ... everything is related to design,” Shin said. “So if we pay a little more attention, we can realize how powerful design can be.”

Greek organizations raising funds for children affected by HIV/AIDS BY JULIA MARBACH STAFF WRITER

The sorority sisters of Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha, Incorporada have always focused their philanthropy events on children, and this year is no different with their Second Annual Red and White Affair. The event, which will be held on April 13 at the Wesley Foundation, is co-sponsored by the fraternity brothers of Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity, Inc. One-third of the proceeds will go to the American Heart Association, said Tanya Patino, SIA president and senior in Engineering. The other two-thirds of the proceeds will go to Camp Heartland. This camp is run by One Heartland, an organization that works with children who are affected by or experience HIV/AIDS, Patino said. “This camp is a way for them to feel comfortable and supported because they have a lot of other people who are there with them that are going through the same thing,” Patino said. Because 75 percent of the families who attend the camp are in poverty, Patino said, the camp is free and features activities such as team building exercises and educational workshops. Not only will the Red and White Affair provide a full course meal, but there will also be a raffle with prizes and a number of performances, such as slam poetry, a singer, dancers and a DJ. Members of both the fraternity and sorority will perform their Greek traditions of saluting and

strolling, respectively. “Saluting is a means by which members of an organization can praise a particular member or chapter within their fraternity or to honor the organizations past and current accomplishments,” Patino said. Strolling, which will be performed by SIA, is a synchronized dance, often performed by African American and Latino Greek organizations, as a sign of unity. “It’s also called party walking, and it’s where we get in a line and do choreographed moves and stuff,” said Karen Ocampo, vice president and junior in Business. The Red and White Affair got its name from how SIA does its philanthropy events. SIA has three colored ribbons, each representing a different cause. Red is for HIV/AIDS, blue is for March of Dimes and gold is for the Special Olympics. Each year, they focus on one of these colors and its associated cause. When the event was started last year, they focused on HIV/ AIDS, and it has been a tradition ever since. “Our founding mother was involved in so many organizations and always gave back, and I don’t know if there’s a specific reason why she picked HIV, but ... a lot of our community service events are always having to do with children,” Patino said. Last year, they sold 100 tickets and raised $375. This year, they plan to sell 150 tickets and hope to raise $500. “This is the biggest event that we do to fundraise for that philan-

It’s just a lot of fun and open to anyone.” The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets can be bought in advance for $8 at SIA’s Facebook page or at the door for $10. “This is important because you would think that a lot of people are aware of the disease, but a lot of people aren’t,” Patino said. “It’s (the misperceptions about it) that make these children feel left out and that’s why they need this camp.”

INITIATE INNOVATE

This session of talks will encourage attendees to “initiate” some sort of vision. Coordinators said they hope that some of the attendees will discover passions, notice problems or form connections that lead to a concrete vision of their own.

Encouraging innovation is the name of the game here. These talks will take the visions and lessons from “Initiate” and help attendees to take the steps to make them into a reality.

TEDxUIUC plans to bring TED-like lectures to Champaign-Urbana with a focus on local community

hile tickets for a TED conference may cost an attendee up to $7,500, University students will have the opportunity to have a “TED-like” experience for a mere $12. This Sunday, 400 University students and faculty members will attend the fifth annual TEDxUIUC Conference at the I Hotel and Conference Center in Champaign. TED, which stands for technology, entertainment and design, is a non-profit organization that coordinates talks throughout the country that strive to bring together “the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less,” according to TED’s website. Although completely independent from TED, TEDx programs, such as the one planned for Sunday, “give commu-

»

nities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level,” the website states. The program, which began in 2009, gives communities a chance to become licensed by TED and organize their own events locally. Najia Yarkhan, junior in Engineering, is the director of the TEDxUIUC conference this year. After transferring to the University last spring and finding out TEDx talks had been hosted on campus annually since 2009, she applied to be a license holder. “I realized that the campus and community could really benefit from a TEDx event,” Yarkhan said in an email. “(I was) shocked and ecstatic to be approved and began planning.” Yarkhan posted an application on the TEDxUIUC Facebook page

and the Illinois calendar to begin looking for students to help her plan and run the event. After several interviews, she had formed a “core team” of five students, including herself. Together, they came up with a vision for the event: “Initiate, Innovate and Inspire.” Yarkhan said the event will be organized into three separate sessions: “Initiate, Innovate and Inspire,” with each session featuring four presentations and a TED Talk video to go along with each session topic. “We were just discussing where we wanted to go with (the event), and we saw those three words coming up a lot,” said Angel D’Souza, sophomore in Media and director of marketing for the event. After the group’s vision was finalized, members began contacting potential speakers that they thought would inspire and impact

Redefining design

the audience, who were also related to the Illinois community in some way. D’Souza said this year’s team of students, who have never worked on the University’s TEDx events in the past, specifically looked to invite speakers who were directly connected to the University. “The emphasis (of TEDxUIUC) in previous years surrounded local business people and professionals,” D’Souza said. “That didn’t make sense to us, considering the latter half of the title was ‘UIUC,’ and we, ourselves, were students. This year is different, because we have made it a point to focus on students and faculty from (the University.)” Once the plans were finalized, the team had a group of several faculty members, students and alumni who volunteered to speak at the event, and several local busi-

nesses as partners. Deana McDonagh, associate professor in the School of Art and Design serves as a design consultant to start-up companies, is a faculty member at Beckman Institute and in the Gender and Women’s Studies program. She will be one of the speakers in the “Initiate” session, and said that she is most excited about TEDxUIUC “bringing together students and faculty for an event that celebrates the role of visionaries on campus.” Due to space limitations at the conference center, potential attendees had to pass through a comprehensive application process. Of more than 900 applicants, 400 were chosen to attend. The application, made by Yarkhan and her team, asked interested applicants questions about their goals, their hopes and what they wanted out of the conference.

They were not asked their majors, years, where they teach or any other explicit defining questions. This was done on purpose to allow for a congregate of faculty and students that truly wanted to be there and would contribute, regardless of where they came from, Yarkhan explained. “Rather, TEDx is meant to be open to everyone and anyone who has an interest in spreading and learning new ideas,” said Karan Talati, director of production for the event and senior in Engineering. For those who can not attend, TEDxUIUC will be available live via Google Hangout, a service that offers free video-chats, and will be viewable on the TED website in one month.

out with the old Seniors end careers on high note after rough start By Johnathan Hettinger

K

Staff writer

arisma Penn and Adrienne GodBold experienced it all at Illinois. The Illinois women’s basketball seniors had recordbreaking careers and postseason success. They also saw their coach and mentor fired and lost many teammates to transfers and career-ending injuries. Penn and GodBold walked off the court as Illinois women’s basketball players for the last time Saturday after a 66-48 loss to Kansas State in the WNIT quarterfinals. It didn’t take too long for the reality to set in. “We knew going into each game in the postseason that it could be our last game,” Penn said. “I had a moment Sunday with my mom,” GodBold said. “I was like, ‘My college career is over. It’s done. Put a stamp on it.’ And she’s like, ‘Just be ready to take the next step in your life.’” Everything the seniors went through at Illinois should help them prepare for that next step, which will likely be professional basketball. Over their four years, Penn and GodBold fought through many challenges. GodBold and Penn lost the other four members of their recruiting class to injuries and transfers. The

hen the final buzzer sounded in a 66-48 loss to Kansas State in the round of eight of the WNIT on Saturday, Matt Bollant’s first year as the head coach of the Illinois women’s basketball team was in the books. Although Illinois wasn’t expected to compete in Bollant’s debut season, he surpassed expectations for a first-year coach. “It’s a hard first year,” Bollant said. “You look at programs that turned over, Texas, Boston College and a lot of other programs that turned over, they had rough years. For us to win 19 games in a transition year, especially where the program was at before, that’s a good start.”

the Departures Karisma Penn graduating forward The First-Team All-Big Ten selection was the sole inside presence for Illinois this season. Penn led the Illini in scoring and rebounding for each of the past three seasons. Penn anchored Illinois’ defense by blocking shots and getting steals. She finished her career as Illinois’ all-time leader in blocked shots, second in rebounds and doubledoubles, and fourth in points and steals.

Adrienne GodBold graduating guard The senior guard developed into a leader for the Illini after being named Big Ten Sixth Player of the Year during her junior year. The Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year helped Illinois break the Big Ten forced turnover record with 3.0 steals per game. GodBold also provided Illinois with another option on offense, increasing her scoring from 9.6 points per game to 15.9.

Amber Moore senior guard

Alexis Smith junior guard

Nia Oden junior forward

Moore is a constant threat from outside the arc and is one of the smartest players on Illinois’ offense. Bollant’s offense relies heavily on 3-pointers, and, this season, he said he wanted Moore to attempt at least 10 threes a game. Moore, an 86.8 percent free-throw shooter, has set a goal of getting to the charity stripe more often for her senior season.

After hardly playing her freshman year, Smith started every game at point guard for the Illini. Smith was successful driving to the basket against weaker opponents, but she shot just 9.1 percent from behind the arc. When she was able to connect on 3-pointers, Smith spread the floor, opening up easy baskets for her teammates inside.

Oden filled in as the seventh player for the Illini. The 5-foot-10 forward was undersized down low but received more playing time as the season went on. Bollant said the mental aspect of the game limited her playing time this season. Oden often struggled with foul trouble in her 7.4 minutes per game.

Ivory Crawford junior guard

Taylor Tuck junior guard

Mckenzie Piper sophomore forward

Crawford has developed into a consistent scoring threat, averaging 11.8 points per game. Despite becoming more consistent, Crawford spent a lot of time on the bench after questionable decisions led to foul trouble. Crawford’s long-range ability (30.6 percent on 3-pointers) and ability to drive to the basket gave Illinois multiple options on offense.

Illinois’ sixth player filled in at every position for the Illini this season. The 6-foot-1 utility player averaged 4.5 points and 2.7 rebounds, while playing backup point guard for Smith while often defending other teams’ much taller post players. Tuck struggled to consistently make shots, converting just 28.8 percent of her overall shots and 23.0 percent of her 3-pointers.

Piper is Illinois’ only true returning post player. The 6-foot-1 forward has shown flashes of potential, but was inconsistent for the Illini this season. Piper relies heavily on the outside shot (54.9 percent of her shots were 3-pointers). In order for Illinois to be successful next season, Piper will need to have more of an inside presence.

Leah Bolton freshman forward

Taylor Gleason freshman guard

Kennedy Cattenhead freshman guard

Bolton, a 5-foot-10 forward, will play the three or four for the Illini next season. The Chicago Marist product could contribute on the boards and forcing turnovers.

Gleason will add another quick point guard to Illinois’ backcourt rotation. Bollant said he expects Gleason, a 5-foot-8 guard from Grand Blanc, Mich., to contribute next season.

Cattenhead will provide Illinois with another quick guard. A high school teammate of Taylor Tuck, Cattenhead played for Bolingbrook, one of the state’s best basketball programs.

Sarah Hartwell sophomore guard

Jacqui Grant freshman forward

Mikaala Shackleford freshman guard

Hartwell sat out the 2012-13 after transferring from Georgia Tech. Bollant has high expectations for the sophomore point guard, saying she should be in the mix for a starting position next season. Hartwell will have a year of experience playing in Bollant’s systems and will be able to help the Illini play at a more up-tempo pace.

Grant will likely start in Illinois’ frontcourt next season after Penn’s departure. The 6-foot3 forward from Maine South High School will add a post presence to a team returning just two forwards.

Shackleford is listed as a guard/forward, but she is more likely to be used in the frontcourt due to lack of depth in the post. Bollant has spoken of her toughness in recovering from an ACL tear suffered midway through her junior season.

Baseball secures Braggin’ Rights victory at Busch Stadium Illini break losing streak with 6-2 win over Mizzou By Jeff Kirshman Staff writer

David Kerian stepped to the plate in the top of the sixth inning, his walk-up song, “Still Dre,” bumpin’ through the Busch Stadium sound system, and took it all in.

It wasn’t the same view the Illinois’ sophomore first baseman has grown accustomed to playing in Champaign. Looming behind Missouri’s defensive set in right-center field stood the St. Louis Cardinals’ Budweiser scoreboard and the Arch peaking out from behind. Big Mac Land sat stationed in the left field bleachers, while 11 flags denoting each of St. Louis’ World Series championships waved in right field on a 48-degree night in April. Not a bad way for the Illinois

baseball team to spend its second-to-last nonconference game of the 2013 season. But Kerian, a Cardinals fan, had to shake the special from the situation. Jordan and Justin Parr stood at first and second base with no outs. At hand for Kerian was an opportunity to regain the lead after Missouri had tied the game 1-1 with a single in the bottom of the fourth. He thought he should have reached base in his prior at-bat, when the firstbase umpire declared that Missouri shortstop Dillon Ever-

ett’s throw to first had just beat him out. Kerian and his firstbase coach had promptly made their disagreement clear with an unabashed slapping of hands. This time, Kerian left no doubt, sending the 1-1 pitch deep down the right-field line for his first career triple to give the Illini a lead they would never relinquish. Kerian finished the night two-for-four, and the Illini defeated the Tigers 6-2 to earn their first Braggin’ Rights at Busch victory. “After the first at-bat, you

start to settle down once you get everything going,” Kerian said after the game. “It’s just another ballpark, just another game. You’ve played it your whole life, so nothing’s any different.” Illinois head coach Dan Hartleb said the Illini arrived at the stadium earlier than usual so his team could “look around and get it out of their system,” but shortstop Thomas Lindauer acknowledged that it took a little longer to get accustomed to the upgraded facilities. “It’s exciting playing here in

a gigantic stadium,” Lindauer said. “Everything looks small and you don’t feel like you’re hitting the ball very well. ... I think everybody in the dugout was dreaming of being on the field one day in front of 50,000 people.” Every at-bat, particularly for those who will never play Major League Baseball, was crucial on two fronts. Sure, it’s important to secure the win against a rival opponent, but no one wants to

seniors From Page 1B top recruit of their No. 3-ranked recruiting class, Destiny Williams, transferred to Baylor after a locker room incident following the first game of her career. Williams went on to start for Baylor’s undefeated national championship team in 2011-12. Brianna Jones was dismissed from the program for an uspecified violation of team rules following her freshman season. Junior Amber Moore tore her ACL in the first game of her college career and medically redshirted her freshman year. She will be the only senior on next year’s team. But the most difficult loss may have been the career-ending concussions of Kersten Magrum. Magrum endured four concussions in one and a half years before doctors told her that it was too dangerous for her to continue playing in January. “Being out and watching what Kersten had to go through made me want to work more,” GodBold said. “I missed her on the court.” The seniors also lost another teammate, sophomore Kierra Morris, to a career-ending injury. Morris told the team in February that chronic knee pain forced her to cut her career short. Another of the biggest losses came in the form of former head coach Jolette Law’s firing. Law recruited Penn and GodBold to Illinois and led them through their first three seasons. The seniors had to abandon their usual system and adjust to new head coach Matt Bollant’s up-tempo style. “It was a big step and a challenge that I wasn’t sure I would be able to deal with,” GodBold said. “But seeing that I handled the situation and we’ve been a lot better this season, it wasn’t bad.” Without the challenges, it’s unlikely Penn and GodBold would have ended their careers in the same way. Bollant brought the team new hope and

future From Page 1B In Year Two, Bollant’s squad will enter the season with high expectations after so much success in his first year at the helm. Illinois returns four rotation players that already have experience playing in Bollant’s fast-paced system. Even with battle-tested players returning, Bollant thinks one of the biggest contributors to the team next year will be a player that didn’t even appear in a game this season: sophomore guard Sarah Hartwell. “Sarah Hartwell will be a really good player for us,” Bollant said of the Georgia Tech transfer. “Sarah is a dynamic point guard. Really fast with the basketball, really tight with the dribble, (she) can shoot it, can pass, can defend, and she’s gonna be a great player here.” Hartwell transferred from Georgia Tech after the 2011-12 season, in which she appeared in just 10 games for a Yellow Jackets squad that reached the Sweet 16. Hartwell sat out the 2012-13 season due to NCAA transfer rules but will have three years of eligibility. Though Hartwell didn’t play in any games for Illinois, she impressed in practice. “She was one of our best play-

renewed success. In his first season, Illinois finished 19-14, the program’s best record since 2006-07, and made the WNIT quarterfinals for the first time since 2010. The end of this season, unlike the previous three, didn’t leave a bad taste in the team’s mouth. “Although we lost, we finished strong, so we weren’t too sad about the situation,” GodBold said. Now that their careers are over, the seniors are free to focus on their future and upcoming WNBA Draft. Penn has been projected as a top-20 pick in the three-round, 36-player draft. She leaves the program as the all-time leader in blocked shots (271), second all-time in rebounds (1,043) and double-doubles (42), and fourth all-time in points (1,965) and steals (242). She led the Illini in scoring and rebounding for each of the past three seasons and was named honorable mention All-American by the Associated Press. GodBold’s draft status is more uncertain. She will showcase her skills at a combine at the Final Four in New Orleans this weekend. The Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year has demonstrated growth each year, improving from the team’s first player off the bench last season to a top player this season. GodBold missed the first semester because of academic ineligibility, and she saw her team struggle through the first 11 games of the season, going 6-5 with losses to Missouri Valley opponents Bradley and Illinois State. She said she felt guilt, knowing she could have been the difference in many of the losses. But GodBold came back with a splash when Illinois upset previously undefeated then-No. 6 Georgia in her first game back, which she called one of the highlights of her career. Her contributions didn’t stop there. After never averaging more than 9.6 points per game, GodBold averaged 15.9 and 7.1 rebounds. Illinois went 13-9 against much tougher competition with GodBold in the lineup.

ers in practice every single day,” Bollant said. “She has all the tools to be a great player. We feel really good about who she is and her game, and how good she’s gonna be.” “I wish I would’ve got to play with her,” graduating guard Adrienne GodBold said. “She’s fast. It’s hard to stop her. She has some good defense. She’s helped us out all season being in practice on the opposite team.” Bollant’s praise of Hartwell is similar to his preseason predictions for another point guard who was entering her sophomore season. “I don’t think people understand how good she is right now,” Bollant said of Alexis Smith in October. “I think she’s gonna have a great year.” After averaging just 5.6 minutes per game in 19 appearances as a freshman under Jolette Law, Smith started every game for Illinois this season. Her points per game increased from 1.0 to 6.4, and her 5.1 assists per game ranked fourth in the Big Ten. Fellow sophomore guard Ivory Crawford also made a transformation playing in Bollant’s up-tempo system, increasing her field goal percentage from 34.0 percent as a freshman to 40.8 percent as a sophomore, leading all returning players

Both players will have the opportunity to play overseas if the WNBA doesn’t work out. GodBold is glad to have the opportunity. “It’s a dream. I’ve been waiting on this since I’ve been playing basketball, and I really put my heart in it,” GodBold said. “It’s here now. It’s scary. ... But I’m ready to take on whatever’s next. “College was great, but it’s time to move on.”

miss the chance to say they got a hit at a professional ballpark. “I’m always excited to come here because the way the Cardinals treat us,” Hartleb said. “It’s not, ‘Hey, this is ours and don’t screw it up.’ It’s a place they want us to enjoy and be a part of.” Lindauer said the biggest difference between Busch Stadium and Illinois Field is playing on turf verses regular grass and dirt. “You can’t compare those at all,” Lindauer said. “The field here is really quick, a lot quicker than at school. It’s really different than any college I’ve ever played at.” Aesthetics aside, playing at the major-league venue had trended toward futility for the Illini, both at Busch and against the Tigers. Tuesday’s win was Illinois’ first against Missouri since 1988 and also marked the Illini’s first Braggin’ Rights win in three tries. Kerian said Busch’s sightlines proved difficult when attempting to focus on Missouri’s pitches, though his performance Tuesday indicated otherwise. His two hits on the day extended his career-long hitting streak to 11 games, and he is now batting .388 on the season. If he keeps it up, perhaps he’ll return to the major-league setting soon enough.

Illinois’ Adrienne GodBold squeezes through her defenders during the Illini’s win over the Badgers at Assembly Hall on Feb. 18. “Sitting out the first half of the season was hard, but to come back and have the impact that I did on the team and on the court, it was fun. I don’t regret anything,” she said. “The way we played when I got back, it was a whole different team, black and white. To make that impact on the team, it was good.” Indiana Fever assistant coach and ESPN analyst Stephanie White said in February that GodBold’s lack of exposure in the nonconference season may put her at a disadvantage in the eyes of scouts.

in that category. “Ivory’s a great scorer,” Penn said. “The more she develops her basketball IQ, the more great things people will see her do.” With a core of Hartwell, Smith and Crawford, it’s easy to forget perhaps the most important piece of the puzzle for the Illini next season. Even GodBold did. “I’m tripping right now,” said GodBold after forgetting to mention Amber Moore as a key returning player. “Amber, she’s gonna have to step up too, being the only senior. ... She’s gonna have to fill in those shoes.” GodBold entered her senior season in a situation similar to Moore’s. GodBold averaged 15.6 points per game during an eightgame stretch to end her junior season. Moore also had a lateseason surge, averaging 16.8 points per game during Illinois’ four WNIT games. Her only single-digit game in the WNIT was against Kansas State, when Illinois was eliminated. Bollant said he expects Moore to play power forward next season, as GodBold was asked to do for the small-ball Illini this season. “It’s gonna be tough for her, being by herself,” GodBold said. “She wouldn’t have anyone else to turn to on the team

that knows what it’s like to be a senior. It’s gonna be fun for her, but at the same time it’s gonna be a bit tough. “I think she’s gonna handle that well,” Bollant said of Moore’s increased role. “One of the things you want from your seniors is consistency. I thought she did a great job in the postseason of doing that. I thought at the end of Big Ten play she was a little up and down. We need her to be consistent. The other kids are gonna be looking to her, how she practices, how she carries herself.” Aside from the returning players, Illinois will also introduce six freshmen next season. The class is ranked fourth in the Big Ten and 25th in the nation by Collegiate Girls Basketball Report, and fourth in the Big Ten and 32nd nationally by Blue Star. Two players in particular stand out for Bollant heading into next season, Maine South forward Jacqui Grant and Taylor Gleason of Goodrich High School in Michigan. “Jacqui Grant is gonna come in and play,” Bollant said. “She’s (6-foot-3), can really pass and move. Jacqui’s gonna be a great player here, it’s just a matter of time. I think Taylor Gleason probably (will receive playing time next season), she’s runner up Ms. Basketball for the state

of Michigan, and she works out extremely hard. I think those two probably have the best chance.” Though Grant has size, Bollant says the team may have look elsewhere for a starting center. “The question is the five, we may not have a true five,” Bollant said. “We may play with fours next year. McKenzie Piper (is) returning, I think she’s gonna take a step. “One of the best things about freshman is they become sophomores.” Piper will return as a sophomore after starting four games as a true freshman. When junior forward Kersten Magrum told the team about being medically disqualified because of her concussion history, GodBold noticed a change in Piper’s play. “On that day, I saw a different side of McKenzie Piper,” GodBold said. “She was the most emotional when Kersten shared it with us, and in that practice she was another person. It made me think about her next year. She’ll be able to step up as one of the post players.” Along with the players, the vaunted Buzz defense will make its return next season after the Illini set a Big Ten record for steals in a season with 417 and broke the school record for turn-

overs forced with 773. Even with the records, Bollant expects the defense to improve next season. He said the team will practice man-to-man defense much more this spring and next year, since the team depended on the Buzz too often this season. Though Illinois’ offense doesn’t have as catchy a name as its defense, Bollant plans to implement a motion offense next season. He said it would have taken too long to teach his team the motion this year. Bollant said the team will begin practicing the new offense this spring, and that it will give his team more options with less dribbling. “There’s not a pattern to it,” Bollant said. “You’ll see way less dribbling in that motion offense than you saw this year. The ball will move a lot quicker, kids will learn how to move and screen and cut without the basketball in their hands. ... It wasn’t the best thing for this team, but that’s the first thing we’ll do when we start spring workouts is putting in a motion offense. We’ll be a more complete basketball team because of our motion offense, but it takes a long time to learn, takes a lot of attention.”
