Strike over; negotiations continuing SEIU ends 3-day strike with rally in front of Union BY CARINA LEE STAFF WRITER
Negotiations between the Service Employees International Union Local 73 and the University will begin again Monday. The union ended its three-day strike Wednesday. Campus spokeswoman Robin Kaler said she is optimistic about reaching a fair deal satisfying both parties. “We are confident that our offer to the union is fair, and we are confident that we can work with the mediator and the union to reach an agreement,” she said. But Ricky Baldwin, chief negotiator for the union, which represents about 800 University food and building service workers, said they deserve more wages than what the University offered last week. “We are in a good position to expect better from the University and we deserve it,” Baldwin said. “The work they do is essential, and they are very low paid.” The strike ended with a solidarity rally at the Illini Union. Speakers from other organizations, such as the Graduate Employees’ Organization and Campus Faculty Association,

Referendum shows students support Chief by 4-to-1 margin BY TYLER DAVIS STAFF WRITER ROCHELLE WILSON THE DAILY ILLINI
Building service worker Thomas Haley raises his fist in support of the Service Employees International Union Local 73. The union has been on strike for three days and will resume negotiations with the University on Monday. came to support a fair contract for union workers. Sarah Cassinelli, co-chair of the GEO, said the University needs to appreciate the union’s workers more. “I have to say that the fact that the SEIU members are forced on the picket line is a failure of a public institution,” Cassinelli said during the rally. “Workers on this campus are undervalued.” Adam Rosen, SEIU communications director, said turnout on the picket lines in the past three days was better than expected. “We’ve been out here for almost 62 hours, and they won’t stop. It’s only getting stronger,” Rosen said around noon Wednesday. “We have less than 3 percent of the membership (that) has
crossed the picket line, which is a great figure.” The University had called in volunteers to fill in for the union members until Wednesday. Kaler said normal services were not influenced throughout the period and said she did not know of any complaints. “We’ve continued normal food service — all the hours and all the choices — throughout the strike,” Kaler said in an email. “We’ve been keeping paper towels and toilet paper supplied to restrooms, cleaned every restroom in the residence halls at least once every day and emptied garbage as quickly as possible.”

The previously withheld Chief Illiniwek referendum results show that a majority of students that voted reaffirmed their support of the mascot. The referendum question, which asked if students “support Chief Illiniwek as the official symbol” of the University, was met with 9,003 votes in favor and 2,517 against. The results had been sequestered by the Moot Court Board Judiciary, a board of College of Law students that accepts student complaints. The judiciary lifted the hold prior to hearing an appeal on the constitutionality of Illinois Student Senate enabling a campus symbol selection survey in midJanuary. The results of the survey are still being withheld until a decision is made. Justice Tyler Anthony, graduate student, said student senator Matthew Paarlberg had submitted a motion this week to remove the injunction, but it was denied. However, Anthony said this motion brought to light a defect in the original injunction; the Campus Student Election Commis-

Architecture projects focus on Somalia Students challenged to design models tailored to an unfamiliar environment BY ABIGAIL SOLANO STAFF WRITER
University students enrolled in Architecture 476 — Architecture Design and Exploration— are designing models of structures, such as permanent houses and markets, for the 400,000 refugees in Mogadishu, Somalia. The theme for this class, taught by professor Camden Greenlee, is Post-Conflict Urban Microcosms. The project is centered on demonstrating a way of rebuilding this society, which
has endured civil war for 20 years and has little infrastructure and a poor economy. “The goal of the studio is to challenge students to design in an environment that they are not used to at all so that they have a heightened sensitivity towards sustainability, building practices, building materials and techniques, but also the social systems that take place, such as the culture of the area,” Greenlee said. The students’ first assignment was to research the area. They
created pamphlets that graphically represent Somali culture, climate, agriculture, economy, family and social structures. The second step was to create a site model differentiating large existing structures, rubble and demolished buildings. Danielle Tellez, senior in FAA, is building a model of a market. “My project in particular focuses on how a society can effectively rebuild a market, an essential social structure in Somali culture for distributing goods,” she said. “Once more permanent forms of housing become available, the leftover material from the tent communities can be repurposed.”
Tellez said creating this model was difficult because of a lack of geographical information. “This required a lot of guesswork on our part because there is not a lot of information aside from what we can see through Google Maps,” Tellez said. Each project will respond to a problem that the students found during their research. Adam Lewis, senior in FAA, designed a graphic of foreign aid in Somalia. “What I learned was that foreign aid is so vast that the data can act as a graphic itself to form an infographic,” Lewis said. “My individual project relates

Argentine elected 1st pope from Americas, 1st Jesuit BY NICOLE WINFIELD ASSOCIATED PRESS
VATICAN CITY â€” Jorge Bergoglio, of Argentina, was elected pope Wednesday, becoming the first pontiff from the Americas and the first from outside Europe in more than a millennium. He chose the name Francis, associating himself with the humble 13thcentury Italian preacher who lived a life of poverty. Looking stunned, Francis shyly waved to the crowd of more than 100,000 people who packed a rainsoaked St. Peterâ€™s Square for the announcement, marveling that the cardinals needed to look to â€œthe end of the earthâ€? to find a bishop of Rome. In choosing a 76-year-old pope, the cardinals clearly decided that they didnâ€™t need a vigorous, young pope who would reign for decades but rather a seasoned, popular and humble pastor who would draw followers to the faith and help rebuild a church stained by scandal.
The cardinal electors overcame deep divisions about the future of the church to select the 266th pontiff in a remarkably fast, five-ballot conclave. Francis asked for prayers for himself and for retired Pope Benedict XVI, whose resignation paved the way for the conclave that brought the first Jesuit to the papacy. Francis also spoke by phone with Benedict after his election and plans to see him in soon, the Vatican said. â€œBrothers and sisters, good evening,â€? Francis said to wild cheers in his first public remarks as pontiff from the loggia of St. Peterâ€™s Basilica. â€œYou know that the work of the conclave is to give a bishop to Rome. It seems as if my brother cardinals went to find him from the end of the earth, but here we are. Thank you for the welcome,â€? he said. Across the planet, Latin Americans burst into tears and jubila-

We waited 20 centuries. It was worth the wait,â€? said Jose Antonio Cruz, a Franciscan friar at the St. Francis of Assisi church
in the colonial Old San Juan district in Puerto Rico. The speed with which Bergoglio was elected pope this time around indicates that â€” even though he is 76 and has slowed down from the having a lung removed as a teenager â€” he still had the trust of cardinals.

AS A GIRL
THINKS By Melanie Stone
Editor’s note: This is the fourth part of a five-part series running each day this week through Friday. In this personal essay, Daily Illini columnist Melanie Stone combines her story with that of experts and multiple women across the country. More online: For a special presentation of this story, and for more insight on body image, visit InDepth.DailyIllini.com
best friend woke me up one cloudy morning at the end of September. Camden crawled into my bed, hugged me and began to build me back up. She spoke words of truth into my soul, reminding me that I was neither dead nor dying. I could still live fully, whether I was at home or at school. “Mel, look at it like this,” she said. “You can use this semester to do stuff you love to do. Go back to yoga. Read your Bible. Work out. Take pictures. Call friends. Visit people. Spend a day downtown. Walk around the forest preserve. ...” Cam’s list went on, and so did my life. From that day forward, God began changing my heart. In my mind, sophomore year was supposed to be my year. I was living in the sorority house, I was writing my weekly DI column, I was a small-group leader in IlIini Life — I had everything going for me, until I didn’t. When God’s plan trumped my plan, my soul shattered, and I had to let Him pick up the pieces. It wasn’t an easy surrendering. For almost two full years, my thoughts about myself had been deliberately negative. I was constantly in pursuit of perfection, all because I wouldn’t let myself think I was good enough. If I could just get down to 120 pounds, then I’ll be happy. I got to 116 pounds. If I could just avoid sugar for the next week, then I’ll feel better. I cut out sugar completely for five months. If I could just shrink a little more, then everyone will accept me. And there’s the lie I chose to believe: I’m not acceptable. I was desperate for people to love me, to love this exterior shell of my inner being. The problem stemmed from my mind. Because I believed that I was unacceptable, I worked relentlessly to make myself acceptable. To make myself good enough: for that boyfriend, for my sorority sisters, for myself. Months ago, I thought there was something horribly wrong with my brain, that my obsession with food meant I was unusual. Assuming that I’d never be free from the restriction and crazy binges, I sat back and let my flesh — my human nature — fulfill its earthly desires. It wasn’t until I withdrew that I realized something: I have choices. Once I understood the truth about the power of our thoughts, things began to change.
In November, I met with my clinical psychologist, Daniel Goodman — this time not as a client but as a writer — who told me how people often use their physical selves to try to explain their shortcomings. “If you have bad thoughts and a bad image of yourself, then you will likely do things to confirm that belief,” he said. “Doing so brings you relief from anxiety.” I must’ve looked confused because he explained even further. “If you make negative predictions about yourself, and then you engage in negative behaviors, guess how well that fits together?” He moved his hands together, as if connecting two puzzle pieces. “Like this.” It’s impossible to change your actions unless you change your thoughts. It all begins in the mind. If a girl believes the lie that she is disgusting, then she will do things to confirm that lie. Like throw up, starve herself, exercise for hours or binge. There’s a saying, “As a man thinks, so is he.” For the women in this article, it would be: “As a girl thinks, so is she.” Matt Wilcoski, campus pastor of Illini Life Christian Fellowship, pointed me toward Romans 12:2, which reads: “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will.” He explained to me just how important it is to renew our minds instead of going with the flow of society. “One of the most transformative skills to learn in life is to hit pause in the midst of a strong emotion, especially negatives ones, and reflect on what you are thinking at that time.” It’s hard. It’s hard to slow down and take a deep breath when all we want to do is react. And often, our reactions are abusive. We find solace in alcohol, sex, drugs, money or food — anything that might be able to numb the pain we feel. Shawna Burkhart, licensed clinical counselor based in Hinsdale, Ill., told me during one of our sessions that mental health often becomes an issue for our age group. As college students, we learn who we truly are. We must choose to say yes to the things that will uplift us and say no to the things that bog us down. What looks good for one person might not be the best decision for another. “College is the first time you’re confronting yourself as a true individual,” she said. “You have to figure out what you believe about yourself.” For some of us, we scrutinize, saying things to ourselves that we’d never say to another person: I’m worthless. I’m fat. I’m ugly. I’m different. I’m uncontrollable. I certainly told myself these lies, falling into the trap of never feeling good enough. But what does it mean to be good enough? “Good enough is being OK exactly as you are,” Burkhart said. “We are not perfect, but we are OK.” It’s easier said than done, of course. I’ve read so many books and articles on body image, all claiming that the cure to poor self-esteem is simply learning to love yourself. Well, OK. How do I do that? How can I love this mess of a person I’ve become? “You have to pause in your life to really challenge the negative beliefs you have about yourself,” Burkhart said. When people have the courage to stop and say, ‘Woah, is what I’m saying true about me?’ is the very first step to change.” She gave me a toolbox of sorts, four questions that can help us get to the bottom of all of this: What are you saying to yourself? How does it make you feel? How would you rather feel? What thought would create that feeling? The lie I chose to believe was: I’m not acceptable. It made me feel like I was garbage, like I was nothing. And so my feelings and my actions reflected that lie. I restricted, I over-exercised, I binged, I self-sabotaged. I wasn’t good enough and I would never be good enough, so I might as well let those behaviors run my life. Of course, I would have rather felt at peace with who I was. Those thoughts, the ones that lead to that feeling, look like this: I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I am a masterpiece. I am unconditionally and eternally accepted by the One who created me. By learning to alter my beliefs about myself, I found healing. So did Amanda, a recent graduate of the University of Michigan.

AS A GIRL THINKS By Melanie Stone (continued from 4A) For years, her life was ruled by anorexia, but she was hungry for acceptance and love from others. Amanda’s turning point came during her junior year of college, when she heard her pastor tell a story about another person who was also battling anorexia. “This girl had a dream of a painting of herself,” Amanda said. “She was slowly ruining the painting, smudging it and coloring it with black. Then God told her, ‘You are my masterpiece, don’t ever paint over it.’ “I hid my face and ended up running to the bathroom and crying. Then, for Christmas, my roommate actually got me this engraved jewelry box that said, ‘You are God’s masterpiece, don’t ever paint over it.’” From that point, Amanda embarked on a journey to a different life. But it wasn’t easy,
and it is still something she must consciously work on. “Physically, I’m healed,” Amanda said. “Mentally and spiritually, I am healing but still fighting lies. The difference is: I am choosing health and life over thinness and perfection. I choose not to engage in those thoughts.” When we, as women, choose to think differently about ourselves, our attitudes reflect those thoughts. Krissy Tamburo, sophomore at Georgia State University, is a college soccer player who has devoted most of her life to the sport. For the past year, she’s been injured, forced to sit on the sidelines. Krissy can feel the consequences of her time out. “I’ve developed love handles,” she said. “My friends tell me I don’t look any different, but I feel different because my muscle is now fat.”
Krissy could let her physical changes get to her. She could choose to restrict her diet and obsess over her body. But instead, she remains positive and thankful in the middle of this trial, reminding herself that the injury is part of God’s plan for her life and is only temporary. Temporary. This is huge. Our bodies are temporary, nothing but shells. They weren’t made to be perfect: Bones break, tumors grow, illnesses sicken. No one ever promised us a perfect body, or a perfect life, for that matter. But we can still have freedom, and to find it, we must consciously take our negative thoughts captive. Then, and only then, can the true healing begin.

FROM PAGE 6A met strayed from his preconceived notions. He worried that he wouldn’t fit in with the rest of the students at the LGBT Resource Center, but he found this was not the case. Pagan became comfortable in his own skin, but he wishes that others in the LGBT community would find the same inner peace. “I have met gay men, even on this campus, who have explicitly said, ‘I work out every day because I don’t want to get fat because if I do, people will stop sleeping with me,’” Pagan said. While the majority of people who are LGBT do not have eat-

of people in the LGBT community proves to be imperative, as Pagan said the image of the LGBT community represented in the media is only one aspect of gay culture, and body image is not the only aspect of gay identity. “Not everyone has the time, or even the desire, to go to the gym every day for three hours and sculpt this perfect body. ... There’s nothing wrong with doing that, but there are other people out there who are not doing those things,” Pagan said. “And that’s where the problem lies. The people who are not doing those things are perceived to be not real gays.”
their decision to go into business together. “To go from a sense of wonder to this explosive disbelief that ‘I really can’t have actually seen what I just saw, but obviously I did, I just saw it.’ So, there’s this huge crazy disconnect, and it’s a fun thing to experience. It’s just this wondrous sense of ‘I can’t explain that,’” Lisa Cerezo said. As der Geist continues to work locally and do more corporate events, he dreams of becoming
a household name and performing for as long as possible. “I’m hoping to become very well-known for doing escape magic and for doing mentalism, and for doing these types of things in a way that nobody’s ever done them,” he said.

Phi Eta Sigma: A society for honors students to connect BY JOLIE HUANG STAFF WRITER
“Knowledge is power.” This phrase is the motto for one of the oldest honor organizations on campus, Phi Eta Sigma. Founded at the University in 1923, Phi Eta Sigma is the first and largest honor society for freshmen college students in all majors, with over 365 chapters in the nation. The organization functions according to five branches: social, tutoring, philanthropy, service and professional development. “We are welcoming nearly 1,000 members this semester at U of I alone,” said Isabella Prenta, junior in LAS and Phi Eta Sigma president. Freshmen are sent an invitation to join the organization after their first semester if they have achieved a 3.5 GPA or above. They are then required to fill out a form and pay dues before they can become a full member of the organization. After this, members are free to attend as many events as they would like. This way, they are able to mold the organization to fit their scheduling needs. However, members must achieve 50 active hours if they want to be given an honor cord for graduation. Major events for the year include an etiquette dinner and mocktail night. Members also can give back to the community
through events such as Relay for Life or tutoring locally. “My favorite aspect of Phi Eta Sigma is the impact the group has on the community and on the students at U of I,” said Kaitlyn Hull, Phi Eta Sigma senior adviser and senior in Business. “I really appreciate the opportunity to provide my peers with opportunities to participate in the community and make a difference in people’s lives.” Being such a large organization, Phi Eta Sigma also makes sure to have social events for members to bond, such as family dinners, game nights and ice skating. “The social events are my favorite because I’m able to be with people who are motivated just like I am but aren’t afraid to relax, either,” said Kelsey Engel, freshman in LAS. Many members of Phi Eta Sigma share this ambition. “Everyone just really understands their responsibilities and works hard at everything they do, which really makes the group special,” Prenta said. “We are all forward-thinkers and plan ahead to make the organization the best it can be.” Prenta joined the organization as a freshman to become more involved on campus. The resources of Phi Eta Sigma were able to help shape her decision for double majoring in English and history.
One of the benefits of being a part of the organization is having access to a peer-tutoring list. If a student is struggling with a class, he can email another member who is strong at that subject to schedule a tutoring session. This resource is especially useful because of the large and diverse membership of the society. “Phi Eta Sigma truly tries to combat the stigma of just being something that kids put on their resume,” Prenta said. “We want to tailor it to everyone’s needs and offer every student in every major the most benefits.” The society makes an effort to cater to all majors; it brings in speakers from various career fields, such as pre-law faculty or medical-school advisers so that many jobs can be discussed. Phi Eta Sigma takes consistent steps to improve their program. This year, its website was remodeled, and Facebook and Twitter accounts were launched to improve communication with students beyond the biweekly emails. “In the future, this honor society hopes to continue to build a reputation for being an active student organization whose mission is to better not only the community, but the student members themselves, both academically and professionally,” Hull said.

When faced with difficulties such as coming out or hiding their sexual orientation, gay men can be more prone to developing an eating disorder to feel a sense of control, Rogers said. Some of the strategies Rogers uses to help LGBT students fighting body image issues include focusing on the functionality of the body and becoming exposed to the wide range of people in the LGBT community.

PERSON TO KNOW
Local magician continues to innovate, amaze BY JULIA MARBACH STAFF WRITER
BRIAN YU THE DAILY ILLINI
David der Geist, a magician and co-founder of Psychic Joker, performs a magic trick Thursday at the Espresso Royale on Daniels Street.
lthough performing card tricks, communicating with the dead, reading minds, shoving nails from cheek to cheek or escaping from chains may be unusual for some, this is business as usual for David der Geist, or Jace Hoppes, if referred to by his real name. One simple title could not sum up all that this 33-year-old Texas native does. Heâ€™s a musician, a magician, a mentalist, an escape artist, a lecturer; the list goes on and on. â€œI basically play with peopleâ€™s heads,â€? der Geist said. â€œIf Iâ€™m doing stage work, I go out there and I read peopleâ€™s minds. I make it look like Iâ€™m contacting the dead. I do all sorts of stuff to make people uncomfortable, to make it appear that Iâ€™m doing things that shouldnâ€™t be humanly possible, and then Iâ€™m doing things that scare the hell out of people.â€? Although der Geist started doing magic in 2002, he was exposed to spiritualism â€” a belief system that focuses on communication with the dead â€” through his grandparents when he was a kid. â€œAs far as sideshow and geek performance ... eating bugs for money in elementary school was kind of the start of that. I just never stopped,â€? der Geist said. Alchemy, astrology and tarot card reading are among a number
of the subjects der Geist studied for years under various scholars and practitioners. Not only has he incorporated what heâ€™s learned into his performances, but he has taught various lectures and workshops across the country. One of the hardest aspects of his work is the unpredictable nature of mentalism. â€œWhen youâ€™re a magician, you can practice the moves over and over and over and over again until your hands cannot not do them,â€? der Geist said. â€œWhen youâ€™re a mentalist, you donâ€™t know what theyâ€™re going to say. Every single show is different, and because of that, thereâ€™s a lot of preparation that you just canâ€™t do.â€? Although he acknowledges that men such as David Blaine, David Copperfield and Criss Angel are certainly talented, der Geist looks up to less famous men such as Joseph Dunninger and George Joseph Kresge, â€œThe Amazing Kreskin,â€? as sources of inspiration. â€œ(Dunninger) carried magic from the stage during the â€™30s, when it was vaudeville through radio into television before anybody else ever thought of it,â€? der Geist said. Der Geist has a number of techniques he employs when performing, which he has learned through his own study, from others in the U.S., in addition to fakirs, or ascetics in India, when he studied
there in college. Some techniques include meditation and visualization, as well as pain control and blood flow control. â€œThereâ€™s techniques that Iâ€™ve learned ... so I can control my blood sometimes, which is hilarious when I go to doctors because Iâ€™ll make my blood pressure go up and down and Iâ€™ll stop and start my pulse,â€? der Geist said. He is also an escape artist. Not only has he managed to get out of a straitjacket multiple times, but he is currently working on an escape in which he will be chained, then locked into a bag and thrown off of a bridge into a river. â€œIt becomes worth it,â€? der Geist said. â€œNo matter how grueling it is, no matter how hard it is, no matter how terrifying it is, because sometimes itâ€™s scary thinking I might not be able to get out of this. It always ends up being worth it.â€? Although much of what he does is illusion, a great deal is real, he said. â€œIâ€™m not going to deny that thereâ€™s an element of magic and illusion in what I do. ... But Iâ€™ll never tell somebody where that stops. When you watch me perform, a good portion of what I am doing is real, a good portion of what I am doing is not, and itâ€™s up to the audience to decide where that line is,â€? he said.

Body image, self-esteem remain issues for men in LGBT community BY ALICE SMELYANSKY STAFF WRITER
While thumbing through an LGBT magazine, Josh Pagan, senior in LAS and vice president of the RSO Pride, doesnâ€™t see one image that matches his reflection. He sees an â€œidealized versionâ€? â€” one unlike the diverse LGBT community at the University, in his life and in reality. But realizing that the skinny, predominately white males
featured in the magazine are only one aspect of gay culture doesnâ€™t change the fact that Pagan, along with others in the community, does not feel represented. â€œI think thatâ€™s one of the biggest reasons why gay men who donâ€™t fit these images tend to have such horrible body image issues or just horrible perceptions of themselves,â€? Pagan said. â€œTheyâ€™re finding that
theyâ€™re not fitting into these templates of gay life and they feel out of place and ashamed of themselves.â€? According to Michael Rogers, staff psychologist and visiting clinical counselor at the Counseling Center, gay men represent about 5 percent of the total male population. Among men who have eating disorders, however, 42 percent identify as gay. This disparity
is not as striking when comparing lesbian and bisexual women to heterosexual women, based on a 2007 study from Columbia University. One reason for the imbalance could be that men tend to be more visually stimulated than women, Rogers said. â€œSince men in the â€™70s and â€™80s started working out strongly â€” partially because of the AIDS epidemic â€” people wanted
to have bodies that looked very healthy in order to counteract the idea that they may have contracted HIV,â€? Rogers said. â€œIt almost created this cliche that gay men look a certain way.â€? Though Pagan maintains a more positive self-image now, he believed this cliche when he was younger and struggled to appreciate his body as it was. â€œMy entire life, Iâ€™ve always been a bigger kid. Thatâ€™s always
been the case, even before I knew I was gay,â€? he said. â€œWhen I came out, I didnâ€™t really have a community or any resources to go to, so I looked at magazines and movies.â€? The transition came when Pagan arrived at the University in 2009. His confidence, selfimage and identity all began to align when the gay people he

WHO TO HIRE? BY ETHAN ASOFSKY | SENIOR WRITER
LET’S CALL THE NCAA’S SELECTION COMMITTEE
Illinois prepared for tournament season
A GRIZZLED CEO LOOKING TO HIRE A NEW EMPLOYEE.
he Minnesota and Illinois men’s basketball teams’ resumes cross his desk. For posterity’s sake, Goldy the Gopher and a giant I sit in front of the CEO as the final two candidates for the gig. The employer glances at both sheets of paper. He winces, removes his glasses and wipes the sweat from his brow. The CEO pushes his chair from his desk and stands up. “I don’t envy either of you,” he says. “You’ve both been to hell and back.” This year’s Big Ten season has been the equivalent of working for the sadistic offspring of Scrooge and Cruella de Vil. It’s been what every-
one expected, an absolute dogfight. Thursday’s opening round matchup between Illinois and Minnesota should be no different. As of now, they’re many experts’ last two Big Ten teams in the NCAA tournament. Illinois and Minnesota have similar resumes in terms of good wins and bad losses. Both have defeated No. 1 Indiana at its peak, won a nonconference game against a ranked opponent and hit horrible lulls in the Big Ten. But they’re here. Returning to the CEO analogy, he’ll no doubt give both teams the benefit of the doubt for putting in their time in poor conditions.
Andre Hollins: Averaging 14 PPG on the season. One of the most dangerous scorers in the Big Ten. Rodney Williams: Was injured for Illini’s win over Gophers. Presence could be the difference. Top-five dunker in the Big Ten. Austin Hollins: Averaging 10.4 points and 1.7 steals per game. Scored 16 points against Illinois in Feb. 10 loss. Joe Coleman: While he usually shoots 31% from 3-point range, Coleman lit the Illini up in the two teams’ first matchup. He scored 29 points on 7-for-8 shooting and drained 2-of-3 attempts from distance. Julian Welch: A bench player who will eat minutes. Scored a season-high 10 points against Penn State on March 2. Elliott Eliason: A 6-foot11 center who can rebound the ball. He pulled down 10 boards and had two blocks in the Gophers’ Feb. 10 loss.

SUPPORTING CAST D.J. Richardson: Averaging 15 PPG in Big Ten play. He’s been the unquestioned leader of this Illini squad since it rebounded from losing six of seven conference games in January. Tracy Abrams: Averaging 1.4 steals per game. Dropped 27 points and pulled down eight rebounds in Illini’s Dec. 29 game at the United Center. Nnanna Egwu: Averaging 1.3 blockers per game. His presence on the boards is going to be crucial in stopping Mbakwe. Must stay out of foul trouble. Tyler Griffey: When he’s on, he’s on. He’s made 37 3-pointers this season. Sam McLaurin: Must hit the boards against Minnesota. The fifth-year senior is averaging 2.2 offensive rebounds per game. Joe Bertrand: Shooting 50.8 percent this season from the field.

Minnesota slugged it out in the mailroom, using its interior toughness to lead the Big Ten in rebounding margin (plus-8.1) and total offensive rebounds (15 per game). Illinois is the temp, holding on by a thread with every timeout. The Illini shot 773 3-pointers this season, good for eighth-most in the NCAA. Their 3-point percentage as a team (33 percent) ranks seventh in the Big Ten, but they also make the most 3’s per game in the conference at 7.9. Both teams seem headed for the Big Dance, but nothing’s guaranteed. Let’s take a look at how their resumes stack up:
Compared to the Big Ten
• Scored 43 against Ohio State on Jan. 10, 2012, the thirdmost in one game in school history.

Groce’s March record looks to empower Three things stick out when assessing Illinois men’s basketball coach John Groce: 1 — His energetic, caffeinated personality 2 — He can recruit with the best of them 3 — He owns March No. 3 is probably the most impressive of the bunch. Groce owned an overall record of 85-56 in four seasons at Ohio, but that margin fell to 34-30 against conference opponents. Even still, he took a mid-level Bobcats program to two Mid-American championships, twice sending his teams to the NCAA tournament. There, Ohio stunned thirdseeded Georgetown on March 18, 2010, and last season toppled fourth-seeded Michigan and 12th-seeded South Florida to reach the Sweet 16 before losing to North Carolina. Groce knows when the spotlight is on. This is his time of year. “We had a team meeting talking about how the season went and what it takes to win in the postseason at this level,” senior Tyler Griffey said before Tuesday’s practice. “Coach Groce has had some success doing that, so we’re looking forward to the challenge.” Groce has always prepared his team in terms of seasons to keep attention sharp. The first was the nonconference grind, the second the grueling Big Ten schedule and now the Illini enter season three — postseason play, which starts with Thursday’s opening round of the Big Ten Tournament at the United Center. No. 8-seeded Illinois has a tough firstround draw in No. 9-seeded Minnesota. The two teams split during the season, each winning one on the opponents’ home court. But when Illinois traveled to Minneapolis on Feb. 10, the Gophers were missing show-stopping dunker Rodney Williams due to injury. The 6-foot-7-inch forward is back now, meaning the undersized Illini will have a tough test against a Minnesota team that leads Big Ten with a plus-8.1 rebounding margin. “He certainly changes their team,” Groce said. “We’ll have to keep him off the glass. You can’t let him make highlight plays in transition. He’s very versatile.” Illinois enters Thursday’s contest as the team with questionable health this time around. Junior guard Joe Bertrand remains day-to-day with a shoulder injury and will be a game-time decision, while senior Sam McLaurin is coming off an ankle sprain. But if the Illini have an advantage, it’s Chicago. They’ve already played at the United Center and several players on the roster from the Chicago area will have their families in attendance. Chicagonative Tracy Abrams scored 27 points and pulled down eight rebounds in Illinois’ 81-79 win against Auburn on the Bulls’ home floor Dec. 29. With an 11 a.m. start, the two teams will hardly have enough time for a shootaround before taking the court for the tip. Groce isn’t too worried about that. The team travelled up to Chicago Wednesday afternoon to spend the eve of March together. His favorite time of the year is finally here. “Great time of year, March,” Groce said. “Unbelievable time of year.”

he Greatest of All Time stooped, hands on his knees, looking around his huddle for anyone who could help. On the other sideline, a black, blue and bloodied Rocky Balboa spat a mouthful of blood into a bowl. The referees broke up Michael Jordan’s huddle and waved Rocky back onto the court. The moment had come. In a desperate move, Rocky had recruited rival Apollo Creed to present a two-man tandem to the Toon Squad, an iron-forged unit by this point in the tournament. On the line was a trip to the finals to face “Remember the Titans,” which proved to be too culturally relevant and too stacked with up-and-coming Hollywood talent for “Bull Durham.” Defensive-end-
turned-pitcher Julius Campbell threw a one-hit shutout in a baseball exhibition between the two movies. The hit he allowed was a double to Crash Davis. “He ran to first. I said, ‘Get the (expletive) off my corner, man,’” said an off-puttingly thuggish Campbell. Davis said it was the cultural unity to which the Durham Bulls, who lost 5-0, had no answer. Back at the Ultimate Semifinal, Toon Squad trotted out a lineup of Wile E. Coyote, Stan Podilak, Sylvester, the blue Mon-Star — unfortunately the only Mon-Star that Jordan and Co. could recruit — and Jordan. Apollo and Rocky touched gloves, ready to protect their one-point lead for the final eight seconds. Jordan had no idea what the plan was. Having discovered a serious loophole in the officiating, Rocky and Apollo had mercilessly spent the whole game throwing head punches at all members of the Toon Squad. First down went Lola Bunny, who never saw the running hook from behind coming. Then it was Bugs Bunny and Porkie Pig, and then Tweetie Bird, who in an embarrassing faux pas was instantly killed and had to be redrawn in a full-body cast to maintain a PG rating. That
was just the first possession — one that ended in a Jordan dunk. After Marvin the Martian consulted with the referee from the Boxing Movie conference, it was determined that neither was particularly against the style of play. From there, it became a blood bath, with Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam shooting a blaze of gunfire that managed only to take a bite sized part of Apollo’s ear off before they left the game with fractured skulls and suspended brain activity, I mean concussions. Apollo laughed maniacally at the injury, saying: “We’ve got rabbits! We’ve got a chicken! We’ve got pork! Throw some human ear, cat’s blood and a pair of Granny panties and you got a stew goin’!” Wile E. Coyote and Sylvester were able to survive the onslaught of right hooks, but only because they had a supreme tolerance for beatings. The blue Mon-Star, who once again didn’t record a stat all game, went untargeted. Jordan’s height, agility and mighty aura allowed him to avoid most of the punishment, though he was still hurt. Stan Podilak entered the game only after a reinserted Bugs Bunny was punched in the head and vomited blood, I mean saw stars and had his eyes roll around in their sockets.

Basketball in the future for Illini seniors Penn, GodBold BY JOHNATHAN HETTINGER STAFF WRITER
Karisma Penn and Adrienne GodBold aren’t quite done at Illinois. The seniors still have a few games to play for the Illinois women’s basketball team, whether it be in the NCAA tournament or the WNIT. But, after postseason play, Penn and GodBold don’t plan on hanging up their basketball shoes. Like many seniors, Penn and GodBold aren’t exactly sure where they’re headed after graduation in May, but both know they will be playing basketball. Illinois head coach Matt Bollant said both players are capable of achieving their dream. “Both of them will be able to play overseas, for sure,” Bollant said. “They’re both good enough to play in the WNBA, depending on the right team and the right system.” Penn was named first-team AllBig Ten this season after leading the Illini with 19 points, 9.7 rebounds and 2.9 blocks per game. Stephanie White, assistant coach for the WNBA’s Indiana Fever and ESPN and Big Ten Network analyst, has taken note. “She certainly has a future. She’s one of those players who is a little bit of a tweener, so to speak, size-wise. She’s probably not big enough to play inside like she has in college,” White said. “There is certainly going to be an adjustment period, but she’s certainly got a shot. With the way that she
plays, the way that she rebounds and the level that she plays at, she certainly has an opportunity to play in the WNBA.” White said the 6-foot-2 forward benefited from playing under Bollant. “The system that she has played in this year has helped her because she can be a little bit more perimeter-oriented. She can shoot the 3 a little bit more. It has opened more for her to take it off the dribble a little bit more, so she can showcase the skills that she would use in the WNBA.” Penn said she feels comfortable playing small forward or power forward at the next level. She has developed an outside shot, hitting 27 percent of 3-pointers this season, rather than relying solely on shots next to the basket. While Penn is a projected top20 pick in April’s WNBA draft, GodBold will likely be an undrafted free agent if she is to make a WNBA roster. “She’s definitely a player where if she can get more experience, whether it being playing overseas or not, she certainly has an opportunity to have a future in the WNBA,” White said. GodBold, the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, averaged 3.2 steals and 7.1 rebounds per game. “I see GodBold as a player who can come in and play defense, and now she’s starting to showcase her offensive talent, which is really good,” White said. “But on an

Penn and GodBold will graduate in May, but they plan to continue to play basketball. Penn — 19.0 ppg, 9.7 rpg, 2.9 bpg, 2.2 spg GodBold — 17.0 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 3.2 spg
11-man roster, it’s awfully tough to make a team.” White said GodBold may be limited by her lack of exposure to scouts. GodBold was not a starter until this season, and she missed the first semester because of academic ineligibility. “Her question would be experience,” White said. “She hasn’t had quite the experience in terms of the level of play and the consistency of playing time she has had throughout her career.” Bollant has two former players — Julie Wojta and Kayla Tetschlag — playing overseas. Illinois’ current video coordinator, Celeste Ratka, also played overseas after playing for Bollant at Green Bay. “The hard thing over there is you think you’re going to play pro and the girls will all be serious and take it really seriously, but it’s really just a mix,” he

And they go overseas, and they didn’t find the same, and it was kind of disheartening for them.”
Bollant said that finding the right fit overseas is crucial for players, so he plans to help his seniors find a good agent. “We’re going to have them meet with some agents when we go down to the Final Four and play in a combine-type thing at the Final Four in front of the WNBA coaches,” he said.
While Penn and GodBold are concerned with their future, they aren’t finished at Illinois. They know that, more than anything, a strong finish to their careers could boost their draft stock.

Softball spending spring break on the diamond BY NICHOLAS FORTIN STAFF WRITER
DARYL QUITALIG THE DAILY ILLINI
Illinois’ Alex Booker runs to first base during the game at Eichelberger Field on April 21, 2012.
In the final days before break, most Illinois students are daydreaming about traveling somewhere warm. But as they do every year over break, the Illini will be playing softball. They wouldn’t want it any other way. “Honestly, it’s right where I want to be,” freshman Kylie Johnson said. “I would rather be playing than anything else. I’m here for a reason, and that’s softball. Especially now that we’re getting ready for Big Tens, this is a good weekend to do that and get excited.” Illinois will kick off break by hosting the Fighting Illini Invitational, its first-ever non-confer-
ence invitational, at home against Saint Louis, Western Michigan and Loyola this weekend. “I think there’s a little bit of pressure because you’re expected to win on your home field, but it’s good pressure,” Johnson said. Besides nerves, another possible worry could be that the everchanging Illinois weather would affect play. According to Johnson, it won’t in the slightest. “It’s something that Illinois girls are used to,” Johnson said. “It feels like high school season. We’re used to it being cold. Plus it’s something that both teams have to play with, so it can’t be that big of a factor.” After their invitational, the Illini will travel to play at Missouri on Wednesday before coming back home to end spring break and
open their Big Ten season against Wisconsin. “Usually it’s pretty warm over spring break, so I’m not gonna complain,” junior Alex Booker said. “I actually like staying in Champaign over break. Sure I get to see all my friends going out and doing whatever they do, but we have midweek games and it’s just like any other week. We’re still doing schoolwork and getting that little chance to catch up and it’s all softball. It’s like the summer for us, we’re only focusing on softball and going into our Big Ten conference schedule.” Illinois is happy that it doesn’t have to travel as much over break as it has in the past, but wish that more students could come to its first few home games of the year.
“Our spring break always falls at a little different point in the year and this year it fell so close to Big Ten season, so we actually like that we won’t be on the road this weekend just so we can get on our own field before we host the opening weekend of Big Ten,” head coach Terri Sullivan said. “Obviously we’d love for the students to be around because it’s fun to have them in the stands, but we just want to play ball. When we step between the lines — wherever you are, home or away — you’ve got the same pitching distance, same base path and the idea is to play really good softball.”

Basketball is a lot like reality television romance, except not really DANIEL MILLERMCLEMORE Basketball columnist
arch is a magical time in the sporting world. There’s magic in the air, rivalries are heating up, nobody wants the clock to strike midnight, everyone wants a ring ... That’s right, it’s time for the season finale of “The Bachelor”! Oh, and, uhh, also the Big Ten and the NCAA tournaments will be happening again soon. If you’re a fan of basketball, competition and hilariously bad television, there’s no better time of the year than March, which combines a bit of drama from all three of these competitions. So what better way to break down the dynamics of the Big Ten heading into postseason play than through the eyes of “America’s favorite show” (according to MVP host Chris Harrison) than by handing out Bachelor comparisons for each team. Quick tangent: Before you cover your eyes and run away ashamed of my lack of pride, allow me to make a few points to my fellow men out there who might mock watching “The Bachelor.” A few questions: Do you enjoy laughing? Do you and your buddies make fun of stupid things girls say? Do you enjoy attractive women saying and doing stupid things? Do you enjoy watching the same wom-
en futilely compete and fail in physical activities? Do you enjoy gambling, drinking and furiously debating whether a kiss was open-mouthed? Do you enjoy all of those things together? Damn right you do. Allow me, then, to give you the greatest gift since that one Christmas when you got a trampoline and a BB gun: The Bachelor Fantasy League. Rules and regulations are explained in the sidebar. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the contenders for the Big Ten Championship, in no particular order. Michigan/Desiree — Just like Des, the Wolverines should take home the final rose. They’ve got it all. The looks, the easy-going smile and laugh, the least-awkward conversations. Michigan is the most individually talented offensive team in the country, more so even than Indiana, whose offense is predicated on passing and finding the open man. But something is holding the Wolverines back. It may not be as detrimental as Des’ problems, which include a deranged brother and a troubled past that apparently includes large chunks of times living in tents (which somehow didn’t even get an eyebrow raise from Sean Lowe when he visited the Desiree family mansion — I repeat, mansion — on her home date), but when Michigan’s offense becomes stagnant and overly focused on Trey Burke, it tends to get bogged down.
Michigan State/Catherine — No one saw Catherine coming. Nobody. I nabbed her with my fifth-round pick and neither of my fellow owners made a fuss. At best, I was hoping for a couple cries and maybe an early rose before a mid-season exit. And then all of the sudden — WHAM! — she’s standing there accepting Sean’s final rose. She’s basically the Tom Brady of “The Bachelor.” Michigan State does this routine every year. It struggles to start the season, and we write the team off. They might even falter in the Big Ten Tournament. But come the NCAA tourney, I fully expect the Spartans to make a run to the Final Four. Who knows, they might even somehow end up standing there, accepting a ring, while we all wonder, “Wait, how the hell did we get here?” (I can’t stress how much of an underdog Catherine was. She barely showed up in the first six episodes this season. I don’t think Sean knew her name until about a few weeks ago. She was an 8-to-1 underdog going into the season finale.) Indiana/Lindsay — This match is solely because Lindsay was unequivocally the favorite heading down the homestretch (and not because Indiana struggles to form complete sentences, hasn’t said anything intelligent all season long and is ready to get married and settle down at 24). Not only are the Hoosiers the favorite to win the Big Ten Tournament, they’ll be a favorite for the NCAA tourney, as well. And
just like Lindsay’s most ardent supporters, Indiana fans will be crushed if the Hoosiers finish the year without cutting down the nets (my roommate who rode Lindsay to the cusp of a championship has sunk into a deep depression since the finale). But hey, that’s what happens when you get out of the limo in a wedding dress. Lesson learned. Northwestern/Jackie — Just kidding. They don’t allow highschoolers on the show. Or nerds, for that matter. Wisconsin/Daniela — How did she last until the sixth rose ceremony? Why did Sean keep her around? Did he have any idea who she was? Is it required to have a buzz if you’re on Wisconsin, white and not named Mike Brusewitz? Some mysteries will remain unsolved. Ohio State/Lesley — Look, I really wanted to give this one to AshLee but her adoption, resulting trust issues, prior marriage at age 17 and exquisite breasts simply didn’t fit the bill. So the Buckeyes get one of the only normal women (which, by Bachelor standards, means she probably only had one tragic, life-altering event in her past that she constantly brings up for sympathy points. I’m convinced half these women are pathological liars.) Like Lesley, Ohio State is quietly one of the hottest teams in the country. Yes, the nose might throw you off initially, but don’t sleep on the Buckeyes as title contenders. Illinois/Tierra — Calm down. I

Illinois started 12-0.) before rapidly cooling off (Tierra was immediately hated by the rest of the women. Illinois’ went through a 2-7 start in Big Ten play).

But realistically, you’d be a bit crazy to bet on them.

Rocky sent Sylvester sliding across the court with yet another punch to the head, and Jordan scrambled and picked it up as Wile E. Coyote camped out in the corner, clutching his knees and rocking back and forth, mumbling, “I don’t have to do this anymore” over and over. Jordan grabbed the ball and rose for a layup. Rocky and Apollo turned toward the alltime great and threw punches at him from either side of the lane. Apollo caught him in the temple and Rocky hit him right on the chin. Jordan layed it up, but it clanged off the left side of the rim, rolling over to Wile E. Coyote. The hapless teary-eyed coyote looked at the ball, looked at the boxers, looked back at the ball and shook his head. The buzzer sounded. Rocky and Apollo embraced, on their way to the finals. “You’ve got to hand it to them,” said Jordan in a wheelchair after the game. “They played absolutely tenacious defense, and we really had no counterpunch. “Oh, and they literally murdered Bill Murray.”

For the first time since an Ohio State team featuring the likes of Greg Oden, Mike Conley and Daequan Cook swept through the Big Ten en route to the National Championship game, the city of Chicago hosts the Big Ten Tournament starting Thursday at 11 a.m. Indianapolis has served as host city to the tournament for the past five years, but the most loaded and lauded conference in the nation will play 11 games in four days in the house that Michael Jordan built — the United Center. Indiana, who secured the No. 1 seed in the tournament and its first outright Big Ten regular season championship since 1993 in a win Sunday against Michigan, sits at the top of the bracket in a position to win the Big Ten Tournament for the first time in the program’s history. After the inception of the conference tournament in 1998, Indiana’s furthest run in the tournament was a runner-up appearance in 2001, and the Hoosiers overall tournament
record is one of the worst among conference teams at 9-14. If Indiana is to win that coveted first tournament championship, its path could travel through No. 5-seeded Michigan. The Wolverines were ranked in the top 10 for the majority of the year, but lost twice to the Hoosiers during regular season play. The storyline of that game might lie in the developing rivalry between the two teams, ignited by Indiana head coach Tom Crean berating Michigan assistant Jeff Meyer following the postgame handshakes in Sunday’s game. “On the way to the plane, I talked to him on the telephone. We discussed a couple of things and I apologized,” Crean explained in a conference call Monday. “In retrospect, I wish I had never addressed anything after the heat of the battle in a game, but I did and we move on. End of story.” On the bottom of the bracket at the No. 2 seed, Ohio State looms as the hottest team entering the tournament with five straight wins against its most formidable
