Donors to fund 3/4 of Assembly Hall renovations BY DAN WELIN STAFF WRITER

Director of Athletics Mike Thomas announced Thursday that 75 percent of the $160 million Assembly Hall Renovation Project will be funded by donors. In early March, students approved a referendum for a $25-per-semester fee, which will cover 17 percent of the cost. Thomas said about 8,000 season ticket holders, as well as I-Fund donors, who supply financial gifts to the athletic department, will be receiving brochures in the mail this week outlining premium seating and suite prices at the renovated Assembly Hall. The deadline for them to respond to the brochure is April 19. The premium seating outlined in the brochures will make up 10 percent of the total seating. But Thomas said some

seating will be lost because of the overhaul of the A and B sections that will start from “ground zero.” The new capacity will be between 15,200 and 15,300, and student seating in the lower bowl will increase from 700 to 1,200. The premium seating detailed in the brochure will include 12 suites with 14 seats, 80 four-person mini-suites, approximately 1,000 club seats and 120 courtside seats. Thomas said the estimated total cost of the project is between $260 and $300 million once it is paid in full over the course of the 30-year bond. The Los Angeles-based architectural firm AECOM submitted its design to University officials Nov. 1, and construction will take place from March 2014 to November 2016. Thomas said basketball

Blue Waters officially opens Supercomputer will aid research BY BRITTANY GIBSON STAFF WRITER


Athletic director Mike Thomas speaks about the renovations of Assembly Hall at the press conference held on Thursday.

The University officially launched its petascale computing project called Blue Waters. The supercomputer boasts a sustained performance of one petaflop, making it one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world. At the launch event, held at National Center for Supercomputing Applications building Thursday, Gov. Pat Quinn declared it Blue Waters Supercomputer Day in celebration of the project’s completion. Blue Waters offers more advanced computing capabilities for researchers in science

and engineering fields than previous supercomputers, said Trish Barker, public affairs coordinator at NCSA. “One of the things we’re excited to see over the next few years is who uses the computer and what they do with it, (including) what kinds of things they study and what they accomplish,” Barker said. Thomas Dunning, director of NCSA, said Blue Waters can help researchers understand and possibly solve problems that have been unsolvable for researchers in various fields. He cited examples like HIV, world hunger and natural disasters. “Although there are some equations that can be solved analytically, there are far more you can’t solve in a closed form,” Dunning said. “There are some problems that are so difficult that no matter

how clever a mathematician you are, you are not going to be able to solve those equations.” Blue Waters weighs over 683,000 pounds and is housed in its own custom-made room. The computer was built by Cray Inc. and will be primarily funded by the National Science Foundation. “It’s really something that sets the University of Illinois apart from other universities that definitely don’t have something of this scale,” Barker said. “It can do quadrillions of calculations every second ... With a calculator, that would take you about 32 million years.” Blue Waters was finished in October and has since gone through several stages of testing. In that time, different researchers have started working with the computer. During an early testing period,

a project headed by University physics professor Klaus Schulten successfully mapped part of the HIV capsid. This enhanced understanding of how HIV infects human cells and might one day lead to a cure. “Our systems, when put in the hands of capable scientists and engineers, have the ability to change the world,” said Peter Ungaro, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cray Inc. Blue Waters was designed and created by a team of more than 80 members and has taken five years and $400 million to complete. “Today is a special day for our planet,” Quinn said. “It’s amazing what human beings can accomplish when no one worries about who gets the credit.”

Lincoln Hall contractor pleads guilty to mail fraud University to be paid $500,000 in restitution DAILY ILLINI STAFF REPORT


Follett’s Bookstore, a long-standing campus-bookstore-turned-general-merchandisestore, will close its doors May 29, a few weeks after the spring semester ends. JSM Development bought the property from Follett Corporation, based in River Grove, Ill., last week, said Elio DiStaola, director of campus relations for Follett’s. He said the two companies discussed ownership of the property, located at 627 S. Wright St. in Champaign, for some time. DiStaola said the closure was largely a business decision. “Over some time, it was clear that the value of the property was increasing and sales were getting soft,” he said. Jill Guth, director of commercial leasing at JSM, said the bookstore’s location has been on the company’s radar for five to seven years, but discussion escalated late last fall. She said JSM was looking to add four to five new retailers at the location. The company wants to add more food and clothing stores in this

The property was sold to JSM Development and will likely be replaced with food and clothing stores. “strategic location on campus,” Guth said. DiStaola said the campus bookstore stopped selling course materials in 2010. Since then, the store has sold only general merchandise like clothing, said Store Manager Alex Paul. Scott McCartney, senior associate director for retail operations at the Illini Union Bookstore, located at 809 S. Wright St. in Champaign, said business will not be affected too much. Sales from course materials that the Illini Union Bookstore would pick up from Follett’s happened a few years ago when it

stopped selling textbooks, he said. McCartney is not expecting any change in the bookstore’s general merchandise sales either, and he said Gameday Spirit would likely pick up that business. Gameday Spirit’s Green Street location manager Cory Shumard said he couldn’t be sure of the immediate impact that Follett’s closure would have on business. Gameday Spirit is scheduled to leave its current location around the same time as Follett’s clo-

Thomas Williams, contractor for the renovations of Lincoln Hall, was ordered to pay $1.5 million in restitution to the state of Illinois after pleading guilty to two counts of mail fraud Wednesday in Sangamon County Circuit Court. Williams admitted to falsely claiming that his company would pay minority-owned subcontractors, as required by state law, for millions of dollars of work in renovating historic Lincoln Hall at the University and building a new science complex at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. He also admitted to telling the Illinois Capital Development Board, which issued the contracts, that his company would employ BJB Enterprises, Inc., a minority-owned Peoria-based firm, on the projects. According to Attorney General




Lisa Madigan’s office, BJB did no work and did not provide any materials for the projects. University of Illinois system spokesman Tom Hardy said that the University is expected to receive $500,000 in restitution. “The University was a victim in this, as well as the state,” Hardy said. Williams, the former president of a Peoria-based construction firm, was also sentenced to two and a half years probation. The fraud was discovered and reported by employees of the state’s Capital Development Board, which oversees all nonroad, state-funded construction projects, according to a press release from Governor Pat Quinn’s office. Hardy said the University fully cooperated with the attorney general’s office, and they were “satisfied with the outcome.”

Urbana to host alternative music fest BY ELEANOR BLACK CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Skeletal Lightning Fest, an alternative music festival in its first year, will be held April 5 and 6 at the Channing-Murray Foundation. In celebration of the Midwestern underground music scene, the two-day festival will feature more than 32 bands from 11 different states. Sean Hermann, senior in Media and the creator of the festival, said his main goal in putting on the festival was to help give some attention to a scene that is not very well-known. “(I’m) just trying to bring it to light and show people how great this scene is and how talented these musicians are. There’s another side of music than headlining the Canopy Club Friday night or nationally touring acts that you hear on the radio,” Hermann said. “These bands work

really hard too, they’re just not as well-known.” Hermann’s band, Enta, will play at the event, and his bandmate Daniel Lee, senior in LAS, compared the fest to Pygmalion, a music festival that took place in September. “Pygmalion caters more toward bands in the pop, indie and alternative genres,” he said. “Skeletal Lightning Fest is really the first to make its primary focus bands in the Midwest underground scene.” Lee added that the kind of music that the festival will feature isn’t as accessible as most music that comes to campus. “Bands in the underground scene tend to incorporate technical instrumentals with more abrasive vocals — yelling, screaming or singing hoarsely — both elements that are less accessible to the average listener,” he said. “This has a lot to do with why bands in this

Federal tuition help for veterans put on pause

genre are less commonly found in large-scale musical events here in town.” Hermann put together the festival himself, along with some help from local sponsors such as WPCD FM — Parkland College’s radio station — and Smile Politely. He also runs an independent record label that started out as a blog meant to promote the local underground music scene. The festival features numerous acts that he has worked with. “Most of them are bands I covered on the blog or bands I’ve seen before,” he said. “In the past year, since I started doing the blog, I’ve been a lot more aware of the up-andcoming bands that are making a splash on the scene, so I kind of had an idea of who I wanted to showcase.” One of the bands that will be showcased at the event is Champaign local Hank. Drummer Nelson Cowan said his band will

be playing the second day and will bring a largely unknown music scene to the University. “I think it’s good because with a lot of the music that comes through the University, you don’t have that much experimental music,” said Cowan, senior in Engineering. “Really the only way that you can make it work is by putting it together yourself, like Sean has. If you want to see a certain type of music, you gotta make it happen on your own.” The Midwestern underground music scene is sometimes called the DIY scene, meaning that the bands do most of the work themselves. They book their own tours, make their own merchandise and release their own music with the help of their friends. Hermann said the scene is a very tight-knit and supportive community. “Everyone’s always willing to


help out,” he said. “If a band’s going on tour, they’ll take you in, they’ll let you play in their basement, they’ll cook you breakfast the next morning. It’s a big family.” Hermann said he hopes the bands will bring an atmosphere to campus that will inspire students. “I think it’s just a different culture, but a really positive culture. I hope to introduce some people into that and get some people inspired even if they don’t particularly like that style of music,” Hermann said. “Maybe they’ll start their own bands or get involved in whatever music scene they might be interested in — or not even music, just arts or whatever they do — and know that they have people behind them that support it.”

FOLLETT’S FROM PAGE 1A sure. Bankier Apartments will construct a 14-story building at the spirit wear store’s current location. “The landscape on campus after May is going to look a little bit different,” Shumard said. Brian Paragi, the store manager at T.I.S. College Bookstore, said any business effects from Follett’s closure remain to be seen. Like McCartney, he said most of the business the bookstore would have acquired from Follett’s happened in 2010. T.I.S., located at 707 S. Sixth St. in Champaign, has felt some pressure from competition in book sales over the years, and Paragi said the competitors that have affected business the most are online retailers. Because of this pressure, T.I.S. recently scaled down the size of its JSM-owned store location from two floors to one. Paragi said even though there are several other competitors that sell general merchandise and spirit wear, he believes sales should go up for those retail items. “I would think that if you take one of the competitors out, we would all see an increase in merchandise sales,” Paragi said.

ASSEMBLY HALL seasons will not be affected. The Board of Trustees approved the proposed design earlier this month, which allowed the project to move forward on design development. Once the proposal is approved by the board at its May 29 meeting, utilities construction can begin, Thomas said. He said the overall renovation, which includes the addition of air conditioning, will allow for use of the facility another four months out of the year in order to attract more events. Thomas said that the renovations will be attractive for fans that visit Assembly Hall and they will provide different opportunities than in the past. Other changes to the Assembly Hall will include a new overhung scoreboard and ribbon boards. “Every inch in this building will be renovated,” Thomas said.


After the Air Force Tuition Assistance Program was suspended March 1, University veterans using the program have to switch to other assistance options before the end of this semester. The TA program was established to give active-duty military members a chance to continue their education after service by allowing the military to pay up to 100 percent of their tuition. The suspension was likely caused by pressure coming from the Department of Defense to reduce spending on the program, said Nick Osborne, assistant dean and veteran student support services coordinator. The Army and Marine Corps already suspended their TA programs after sequestration, or automatic budget cuts, had taken place. The program has $85 billion in federal spending cuts that went into effect in March. Osborne said three or four student veterans at the University received benefits from the program. “Most veterans here are primarily using the Post 9/11 GI bill, the Montgomery GI bill or the Illinois Veterans Grant,” Osborne said. “This means that a handful of students here will not be affected with the suspension of the TA program. For those that are, we can see if they are eligible for other benefits and get them on those benefits.” Students who are enrolled in the program have the chance to switch to the other programs provided to them. Tina Anderson, the accounts receivable specialist of USFSCO, said students who are on the program will receive its benefits through the spring. With the suspension of the program, Osborne said he does not expect to see any changes in the number of students who join the Air Force because they will still be given the ability to use the 9/11 GI bill, which Osborne said also gives out relatively the same benefits as the TA program. He said most student veterans use the 9/11 GI bill as opposed to the other programs. Ellen Frost, Student Financial Aid administrator, said she is disappointed to see the suspension of this program. “I believe those that do service for us in the military deserve to be paid for what they have done,” Frost said. “Their payment should include an education.” Osborne said that while few University students will be affected by the cut, veterans at other schools may not be as lucky. “Other schools might have more students using the TA program, and therefore the suspension might be more severe for them,” he said. “I hope that their students will have enough resources needed to graduate and that they are taking this issue seriously.”

Obama pushes Senate to recall Newtown, not to forsake tighter gun laws BY ALAN FRAM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama pressed Congress on Thursday not to forget the heartbreak of the Newtown elementary school massacre and “get squishy” on tightened gun laws, though some lawmakers in his own Democratic Party remain a tough sell on an approaching Senate vote to expand purchasers’ background checks. “Shame on us if we’ve forgotten,” Obama said at the White House, standing amid 21 mothers who have lost children to shootings. “I haven’t forgotten those kids.” More than three months after 20 first-graders and six staffers were killed in Newtown, Conn., Obama urged the nation to pressure lawmakers to back what he called the best chance in over a decade to tame firearms violence. At the same time, gun control groups were staging a “Day to Demand Action” with more than 100 rallies and other events planned from Connecticut to California. This was on top of a $12 million TV ad campaign financed by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg that has been pressuring senators in 13 states to tighten backgroundcheck rules. But if political momentum was building after the nightmarish December shootings, it has flagged as the Senate prepares to debate gun restrictions next month. Thanks to widespread Republican resistance and a wariness by moderate Democrats from Southern and Western states — including six who are facing re-election next year — a proposed assault weapons ban seems doomed and efforts to broaden background checks and bar high capacity ammunition magazines are in question. In one statement that typifies moderate Democrats’ caution, spokesman Kevin Hall said Virginia Sen. Mark Warner is “still holding conversations with Virginia stakeholders and sorting through issues on background checks” and proposals on assault weapons and magazines. In stronger language this week, Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota said, “I do not need someone from New York City to tell me how to handle crime in our state. I know that we can go after and prosecute criminals without the need to infringe upon the Second


Emma Clyman, 5, of Manhattan, holds a sign that reads “No More Newtowns!” outside city hall park during the One Million Moms for Gun Control Rally in New York on Jan. 21. Despite a proposal backed by 9 in 10 people in polls, gun control supporters are struggling in their drive to push expanded firearm laws. Amendment rights of law-abiding North Dakotans.” Expanding federal background checks to private sales at gun shows and online is the gun-control effort’s centerpiece and was the focus of Obama’s remarks. The system, designed to block criminals and the mentally disturbed from getting firearms, currently applies only to transactions by licensed gun dealers. The National Rifle Association opposes the expansion, citing a threat that it could bring federal registries of gun owners, which would be illegal. The NRA says what is needed is better enforcement of the existing system, which it says criminals too easily circumvent. Democratic sponsors are sure to need 60 votes to prevail — a daunting hurdle since the party has just 53 of the Senate’s 100 seats, plus two Democratic-leaning independents. In a sign of potential trouble ahead, six Democrats backed a failed GOP proposal last week that would have

required 60 votes for all future bills restricting guns. “The week after Newtown, we thought it would be a tough road to 60 votes but we’d get there,” said Mark Glaze, director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a group that Bloomberg helps lead. “Three months after Newtown, it looks like a tough slog but we’ll get there.” Exactly how they can achieve that has yet to be demonstrated, with Obama’s turn Thursday as arm-twister-in-chief underscoring the political pressure that proponents feel is needed 104 days after the Newtown killings. “Now’s the time to turn that heartbreak into something real,” said Obama. While not naming the NRA, he chided opponents for trying to “make all our progress collapse under the weight of fear and frustration, or their assumption is that people will just forget about it.” NRA officials are unyielding in their opposition, with spokesman Andrew Arulanandam saying, “We have a politically savvy

and a loyal voting bloc, and the politicians know that.” Obama and his backers find themselves in an unusual position — struggling to line up votes for a proposal that polls show the public overwhelmingly supports. An Associated Press-GfK poll in January found 84 percent support for expanding background checks to include gun show sales. Near-universal checks have received similar or stronger support in other national surveys. Polls in some Southern states have been comparable. March surveys by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute found more than 9 in 10 people in Florida and Virginia backing expanded background checks, the same margin found in February by an Elon University Poll in North Carolina. Analysts say politicians are loath to alienate the people who oppose broader background checks and other gun restrictions because they tend to be dedicated, single-issue voters.

The polling also points to a broader context that politicians are watching: The same Quinnipiac polls that show one-sided support for gun restrictions show people closely divided over whether Obama or the NRA better represents their views on guns. Sens. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.; Joe Manchin, D-W.Va.; and Mark Kirk, R-Ill., have spent weeks negotiating with GOP senators, hoping to find a formula that could win the needed bipartisan support. “I’ll wait and see the outcome of that,” Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska, said of those talks, adding that the message his constituents give him is, “Don’t take away our rights, our individual rights, our guns.” Other moderate Democratic senators who could be tough for supporters of broader background checks to persuade include Heitkamp of North Dakota, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Kay Hagan of North Carolina, Max Baucus of Montana and Mark Pryor of Arkansas.

Education system favors the wealthy


When does the cost of security outweigh the benefits?


ecurity cameras will not be out of style anytime soon — as long as you have the money to pay for them. According to detective Tim Hetrick, of the University of Illinois Police Department Technical Services division, they range anywhere from $300 to $3,000 depending on location and desired function. Now consider this: That camera could be part of a larger surveillance network within one department. And the financial burden mounts. University Police says that approximately 1000 cameras will be stationed across campus by this time next year. That number has rapidly grown since 2008, when the police undertook this project by installing 13 cameras, according to a Daily Illini article published earlier this week. There are currently 900 cameras watching University students and about 25 projects in progress. And you can expect that number to steadily increase as more and more buildings pop up on campus. It would be one thing if all of this money came out of the police department’s pocket, but it doesn’t. Individual departments are responsible for supplying the money needed to fund these increasingly expensive gadgets, just like those departments are accountable for office and cleaning supplies. But at some point down the line, the costs and maintenance of these valuable units will outweigh the obvious advantages of security cameras - the ability to view footage after an incident or the possibility that those cameras could help deter crime. When does the cost of the cameras outweigh their benefits? Students aren’t continually monitored, according to the police department, which says it primarily uses the footage to find possible suspects at the scene where a crime was reported. These cameras do not actually deter crime as it happens; they are only beneficial after a crime has already occurred. The surveillance needs to be more publicized — not the location of these cameras — but their addition to those specific units. The media, in part, plays a role in that, but the police department should drive the message. And then, hopefully, students will be less tempted to take one of their peers’ personal belongings at the Grainger Engineering Library, or marginally deterred from committing more serious crimes elsewhere. Privacy, in public areas, is not a legal concern. When footage is released, having coverage of literally every foot of campus can open up the possibility of exposing those who are present at the scene of a crime, but also those not actually committing a criminal act. But the biggest worry is using these cameras in an effective manner, so there is not a need to continuously build up our surveillance force every year. For example, certain departments can put a cap on coverage, even if they have sufficient money to do otherwise. On the other hand, more cameras are essential in areas publicized as having high-theft activity such as the University’s extensive library system or residence halls. But we also encourage more collaboration between units when a single camera covers a large area, especially when jurisdictions overlap. There’s no need for the University to play big brother with these security cameras. Considering the fact that the only benefit we have seen from these cameras is in solving crimes and not necessarily preventing them, the UIPD should be focusing their efforts on ways to stop crime before it happens. Steadily increasing the presence of security cameras on campus should not replace crime fighting efforts by the UIPD — it should be supplemental.

own name takes away from this ideal ending. With the content of this page more or less spelled out, this brings me back to my original question: What’s the point? Do these anonymous contributors post to find out who the person they desire is? And even if they do figure it out, will they even do anything about it and make a first move? Granted, I have never been on the inside workings of any of these posts, so if the game of matchmaker is really being played, I’d like to know. I really do enjoy this page because everyone can relate to the feeling of missed opportunity. There is always that guy or girl you see walking on campus, and sometimes it just leaves you thinking, “Damn.” Nine times out of 10, we never pursue that person and our lives move on with a slight twinge of regret. It seems as if this Facebook page is made to help alleviate some of that regret and potentially rekindle missed connections, but is that really what is happening? I’d be interested to find out how many people who posted actually found the courage to confront their crush after taking away their Internet shield. For the other few hundred of us who have liked the page but have not contributed, there is an underlying purpose. While it is entertaining to read the posts and see if we can guess who the object of affection is, let’s be honest: We scroll through vigorously looking for descriptions of ourselves. I would be lying if I said I never looked for the description of a short girl — the one with the purple backpack who still has toothpaste on her mouth and looks like she did her hair with her eyes closed.

the United States, we seem to believe that hard work can solve all of our problems. Education is valued above almost everything else, as it provides a way to earn an income and increases opportunities to become financially secure. Education should be a solution to poverty; if you work hard, you should reap the rewards. Education should be a way to ensure financial stability, and a college education should land you a job with good benefits. Unfortunately, the public education system and college acceptance processes have failed us. The public education system, which ought to provide children in the country with a quality, free education, favors the wealthy. The treatment of schools as economic institutions has caused irreversible damage to students. Tanya McDowell, of Bridgeport, Conn., was jailed for stealing education. McDowell sent her then 6-year-old son to a school in Norwalk, Conn., instead of the one he was supposed to attend in Bridgeport. McDowell used a babysitter’s address when enrolling her son at the Norwalk school. At the time, McDowell was homeless. She was charged with and pled guilty to stealing about $15,000 in educational services. The school in Norwalk was clearly a better school than the school McDowell’s son should have attended. Math and reading scores in Bridgeport are below the national average, while about 20 percent of student scores in Norwalk are above the national average. Incomes in Norwalk are about twice that of the incomes in Bridgeport. McDowell wanted more for her son. She sent him to the best public school in hopes that he could get a good education. The idea that education can lift people out of poverty is inaccurate; because people like McDowell aren’t wealthy, they are excluded from the privilege of a good education. Quality schools are often located in areas with high property taxes, expensive real estate and abundant resources. Because public schools are typically funded using property taxes, areas with higher property taxes have more resources, enabling them to attract more experienced teachers thus enhancing the overall quality of education. Children from a low-income area should have the same opportunity for quality education as children in a wealthier area — but they don’t. One of the reasons the education system is failing is because political leaders treat schools like a business. Under Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Chicago Public Schools have been treated like business ventures rather than places to learn. For example, the Academy for Urban School Leadership is a nonprofit that manages about 30 schools in Chicago. The AUSL maximizes profitability by hiring recent college graduates who have little or no experience but are much cheaper to employ than more experienced educators. Hiring teachers based off how little they can be paid forces education to take a backseat to business principles such as profitability. Four of the seven board of education members are primarily business people, not educators. Low-income students are also at a disadvantage regarding college acceptance. Test scores are one of the major criteria used to evaluate whether a student should be admitted to a college. Financial resources help people to do better on these tests. Kaplan Test Prep boasts that 95 percent of their students get into at least one of their top college choices. Kaplan has a policy that allows their students that are unsatisfied with their test scores to take additional classes at no expense. But Kaplan ACT prep courses start at $299, and students who can’t afford these types of courses are forced to prepare almost entirely on their own or with whatever resources their high schools have to offer. Until we stop viewing education as a financial burden and start seeing it as an investment in the future, the education system in this country will continue to fail those who need it the most.

Use openness to control your demons MELANIE STONE Opinions columnist


ulnerability is rare. Our generation loves to selfprotect, to pretend everything is OK and to stuff our fragile emotions as far down as we can. Openness scares us. Instead of sharing our struggles, we smile and fake it. A year ago, I would never, ever have written and published my series, “As a girl thinks.” I kept my struggles under wraps. My friends and family knew a little, but they did not know enough. The very thought of sharing my food issues with them made me want to bolt. It has been exactly two weeks since the series concluded. I’ve had two weeks to process, to read emails and to thank all who worked tirelessly to make “As a girl thinks” happen. There is one theme that has constantly reappeared: the power of vulnerability. In Lysa Terkeurst’s book, “Unglued,” she writes about her personal battle with anger and frustration and what it looks like to become completely unglued. “I’ve been assigned a load I can handle. The good and the bad in my load is what I should carry. I’m not designed or assigned to carry someone else’s load.” This, I think, is an important concept to understand. We all have our own problems that can control us and swallow us whole. For me, it

was food. For you, maybe it’s alcohol, pornography, anxiety, perfectionism, sex, money, a broken family or deep-rooted jealousy. There is not one person who can claim to be perfect. In this world, we will have trouble. We will. It is absolutely inevitable. But our individual and unique trials in life are with us for a reason. I’m still learning how to deal with my food issues, and I’ve already come quite far. It would be foolish for me to wish for someone else’s load.

Each day, I received emails from girls around the University and beyond — girls who had connected to my story and wanted to share their own. The question, then, is how to be open about the things that hurt us. Perhaps the very first step is realizing the need for hardships. The things that bog us down actually serve a grander purpose. It is through struggle that we learn lessons of perseverance and humility. These are traits that, when developed, will serve us well in our lifetimes.

Being transparent through these trials also helps us relate to one another. I saw this play out when my series was published, when my personal journey was made irrevocably public. Each day, I received emails from girls around the University and beyond — girls who had connected to my story and wanted to share their own. My heart melted as I read their words. I wanted to jump up and say: “I know what you mean! I know exactly how you felt!” And I wanted to hug them tight and tell them the things I’ve learned and maybe, possibly help them find freedom from shame, too. One email in particular was from a young woman named Laura who had read the series. Her experiences were quite similar to mine. In her message to me, Laura wrote: “Those struggles, fears, and lies I believed aren’t a shameful part of my own story; God used that relatively small but significant part of my life to be an illustration of the overwhelming grace and redemption that are part of His wonderful and much, much bigger story.” I sat back in my chair after reading and couldn’t help but feel thankful for Laura’s sweet words and for her acceptance of her own load. But mostly, I admired her brave and honest vulnerability — something we should all be striving for.

Facebook not the place to find true love NICKI HALENZA Opinions columnist


y now, most University students on Facebook (so presumably everyone who doesn’t live under a rock) have gotten wind of the University of Illinois Secret Admirer page. It was created earlier this month and already has well more than 3,000 likes. The page works by having people fill out a blurb confessing their campus crush through a Survey Monkey link that ensures their anonymity. Many of these posts follow the same pattern of writing about that person they saw on the Quad and how she thought he was a total hunk of good-looking beefcake. If the person gets lucky, someone else comments on the post with, “Omg they are totally talking about Chad McDreamy.” As a result, the anonymous contributor is now able to Facebook creep Chad — and that’s about it. Great success. Congratulations on now being a certified Facebook stalker. With a deflated fairy-tale ending such as this, it leads me to ask, what exactly is the point of the University of Illinois Secret Admirer page? Dozens of people have already contributed to this group by revealing some long-lost connection they had at a bar, in class, the gym or in the basement of some frat with the old, “I should have talked to you while I had the chance.” Other posts reveal long, sappy and almost vomit-inducing declarations of love. Some person may gush about that brunette girl who lives down the hall and how she is supposedly the most beautiful girl

on campus. Luckily, most of these descriptions are vague enough to apply to a vast majority of us so at least we may get a little ego boost out of it. But what does Romeo get out of it other than a virtual confession? Then there are the posts that scream phony. These entail someone describing his fellow frat-bro in a desperate attempt to be funny. It’s not even that I don’t appreciate the idea behind a fake, exaggerated post, because this Facebook page begs to be satirized. However, most of them are just poorly executed.

Do these anonymous contributors post to find out who the person they desire is? And even if they do figure it out, will they even do anything about it and make a first move? Next, there are posts that are downright raunchy — just straightup telling a dude that his rippling muscles have grabbed her attention or letting a chick know that she’s a babe. One of my favorite secret admirer contributions is the post that embeds the music video for “I Fink U Freeky” by Die Antwoord. It’s honest and direct, nothing is expected, and it lets someone know — keep up the good work. And finally, there are the people who get straight to the point and simply type in the person’s name that they are lusting after. While seemingly gutsy, the lack of revealing one’s

The Soyuz-FG rocket booster with Soyuz TMA-08M space ship carrying a new crew to the International Space Station, ISS, blasts off at the Russian leased Baikonur cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, Friday. The Russian rocket carries Russian cosmonauts Alexander Misurkin, Pavel Vinogradov and U.S. astronaut Christopher Cassidy.

Russian spacecraft carrying American astronaut launches Trip to take 6 hours instead of 2 days thanks to shorter space path, decreasing fatigue of crew BY DMITRY LOVETSKY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BAIKONUR, Kazakhstan — A Russian spacecraft carrying a three-man crew blasted off Friday from a launch pad in the steppes of Kazakhstan, for the first time taking a shorter path to the International Space Station. Instead of the two -day approach maneuver used by the Soyuz spacecraft in the past, this journey to the station would take NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy and Russians Pavel Vinogradov and Alexander Misurkin just under six hours. The Soyuz TMA-08M lifted off on time from the Russianleased Baikonur cosmodrome at 2:43 a.m. Friday. It’s set to dock at the space outpost at 10:32 p.m. EDT Thursday. The trio are “on a fast track to the International Space Station,� NASA spokesman Josh Byerly said, adding minutes after the launch that all was going well and the spacecraft went into orbit without any problems. The new maneuver has been tested successfully by three Russian Progress cargo ships,

an unmanned version of the Soyuz used to ferry supplies to the space station. Vinogradov joked at a prelaunch news conference at Baikonur that the journey to the station would be so quick that it could allow the crew to even carry ice cream as a present to the three men currently manning the orbiting outpost. “It wouldn’t melt in such a short time,� he said. On a more serious note, Vinogradov added that the shorter flight path would reduce the crew’s fatigue and allow astronauts to be in top shape for the docking. He said that it takes about five hours for the human body to start feeling the impact of zero gravity, so the quicker flight would allow the crew to more easily adapt to weightlessness in much roomier space station interiors. The downside of the accelerated rendezvous is that the crew will have to stay in their spacesuits, which they don hours before the launch, through the entire approach maneuver. Other Russian cosmonauts in the past have described the

two-day approach maneuver in the cramped Soyuz as one of the most grueling parts of missions to the orbiting station. The spheroid orbiting capsule allows the crew to take off their bulky spacesuits, change into more comfortable clothes and use a toilet, but its interior is extremely confined. The ship’s spartan layout lacks adequate heating and fails to provide an opportunity for the crew to get hot food. It contrasts sharply with the spacious U.S. space shuttle, whose retirement has left Soyuz as the only means to deliver crews to the space outpost. Russian space officials said the longer approach was necessary at a time when the station was in a lower orbit required for the shuttle flights. After they ended, it was raised from 350 kilometers (217 miles) to 400 kilometers (249 miles), making a quicker rendezvous possible. NASA is working on the development of its new generation Orion spacecraft. Orion’s first trip is an unmanned mission in 2017, and the first manned mission is set for 2021.

HIV and Hepatitus result from visit to unsafe dentist Oklahoma dentist to face reprimand



TULSA, Okla. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Health officials on Thursday urged an Oklahoma oral surgeonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patients to undergo hepatitis and HIV testing, saying filthy conditions behind his officeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spiffy facade posed a threat to his 7,000 clients and made him a â&#x20AC;&#x153;menace to the public health.â&#x20AC;? State and county health inspectors went to Dr. W. Scott Harringtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice after a patient with no known risk factors tested positive for both hepatitis C and the virus that causes AIDS. They found employees using dirty equipment, reusing needles and administering drugs without a license. Harrington voluntarily closed his offices in Tulsa and suburban Owasso and is cooperating with investigators, said Kaitlin Snider, a spokeswoman for the Tulsa Health Department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an unprecedented event,â&#x20AC;? Susan Rogers, executive director of the state Board of Dentistry, said in an interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To my knowledge, this has never happened before as far as a public notification of a (hepatitis C) case involving a dental office.â&#x20AC;? The Oklahoma Board of Dentistry said the inspectors discovered multiple sterilization issues at Harringtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offices, including the use of a separate, rusty, set of instruments for patients who were known to carry infectious diseases. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has determined that rusted instruments are porous and cannot be properly sterilized,â&#x20AC;? the board said in a 17-count complaint against the dentist. Officials are sending letters to 7,000 people who are known to have been patients of Harrington, but they noted that


Susan Rogers, executive director of the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry, speaks during a news conference regarding the practices of Tulsa oral surgeon Wayne Harrington in Tulsa, Okla., on Thursday. they do not have information for patients before 2007 The letters urge the patients to be tested for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; viruses typically spread through intravenous drug use or unprotected sexual contact, not occupational settings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncertain how long those practices have been in place,â&#x20AC;? Snider said. Harringtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice in Tulsa is in a tiny part of town, on a row of some of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most upscale medical practices. Inside, the Dentistry Board said, Harrington ran a clinic that paid little attention to ensuring items were sterile. Dental assistants needing an extra dose of an anesthetic would re-insert used needles into drug vials, drug vials were used on multiple patients, the office had no written infection-protection procedure and Harrington told officials he left questions about sterilization and drug procedures to his employees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They take care of that, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? the board quoted him as saying.

reAccording to the complaint, a device used to sterilize instruments wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t working properly. A test is supposed to be performed monthly and sent to a lab to determine that the equipment is successfully sterilizing instruments, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;no such test had ever been performed in the 6 years one dental assistant had been working at the office,â&#x20AC;? the complaint said. The doctor also apparently used outdated drugs, as one vial found this year had an expiration date of 1993, and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t properly keep track of drugs, the complaint said. It noted that a drug cabinet was unlocked and unattended during the day and that dental assistants administered IV sedation for procedures. It also said that although U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration records show Harrington had not received morphine from a distributor since 2009 Officials said patients will be offered free medical testing at the Tulsa Health Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North Regional Health and Wellness Center.

New KoFusion location to open Einsten Bros. Bagels provides in campustown during summer Illini Union with more options BY ADLAI STEVENSON STAFF WRITER

Fans of KoFusion won’t need to travel to downtown Champaign for coconut milk curry or cocktails for much longer. Restaurant owner Janet Bubin said the sushi lounge will open a new location on campus this summer. Bubin, who owns the restaurant with her husband, said the campus location will offer easier access to students and faculty members who enjoy KoFusion’s food, with unique options like dollar-menu sushi available throughout the week. Matt Wavering, director of commercial brokerage at Coldwell Banker Commercial Devonshire Realty, said he looked for possible locations with the Bubins for six months, preferably for an area on Green Street. Eventually, they became aware of an available campus location in Urbana through JSM Development. Wavering and the Bubins realized there are a lot of benefits for Gregory Place West, the open area, and they agreed upon the location, Wavering said. “The Krannert Center for Performing Arts is very close to Gregory Place West, which many people travel to, not only from places on campus, but from additional areas as well,” Wavering said. “Dining options near Krannert are mostly fast food, so KoFusion’s new location will provide a unique and attractive dining option for the Urbana area.” Wavering added there are other benefits, such as lower costs, in contrast to other potential locations. JSM will help design a modern and urban aesthetic for KoFusion’s new location, which will make it stand out even further, Wavering said. Lukasz Kosakowski, freshman in Engineering, said he looks forward to eating at KoFusion’s new Urbana location

when he returns to campus in the fall. Kosakowski dined at KoFusion earlier this semester with his parents, and he joked that the food made for a great meal and the sitdown less awkward as a result. However, Kosakowski added that he is unsure if the new location will regularly attract his group of friends and similar students. “(We are) usually fine with a quick meal and may only option for something like KoFusion on very special occasions,” Kosakowski said. “I generally stick to the Champaign side of campus, so (Kofusion’s) original location might even be closer for me and other students in the same situation. Even places on Green Street may be better for proximity’s sake.” But Kosakowski noted the strong appeal of dollar-menu sushi. He said the new location will definitely stay on his radar for the future.

Students venturing into the depths of the Illini Union basement will now be greeted with arguably two of the most trusted cartoon brothers in bagel making. The bagel and coffee franchise Einstein Bros. Bagels opened on March 22 in the space formerly occupied by McAlister’s Deli. Marc Bralts and Ryan Oas are the owners and managers of the new franchise. Their first Einstein Bros. Bagels establishment, located at 901 W. University Ave., opened in June 2010. The managers and the Illini Union contract management office began planning for the second restaurant’s creation last spring, following McAlister’s closing in May 2012. The contract was finalized by December, said Jim Trail, former manager of campus vending at the Illini Union and current operations manager of the Illini Union Bookstore. “I think the opportunity we saw was there’s really not anything else that offers our menu selection down here,” Bralts said. “I think we complement the existing options really well.” The two owners, who are both from Minnesota, moved to the Champaign-Urbana area in 2010 to introduce the first franchise. Balts said part of their core mission is to offer quality, health-conscious items, such as thin bagels, low-calorie sandwiches, fruit, yogurt, coffee and orange juice. Hannah Dole, student manager of the event services office at the Illini Union, said she’s happy about the new Einstein Bros. Bagels being on campus. It’s a great eatery to go to for breakfast food, said the senior in FAA. Construction to convert McAlister’s to Einstein Bros. Bagels began in mid-February and was approximately a five-week process. Bralts said that building the restaurant did not take long because much of the infrastructure needed for the space — such as plumbing and electrical support — was previously installed by the Illini Union.

He said Einstein Bros. Bagels will probably have anywhere from 12 to 15 employees at any one time, with more employees working during the school year than in the summer months. Before opening the store, the employees had a three-day intensive training period, which included learning how to make every type of sandwich and bagel, said Jackson Karaganis, Einstein Bros. Bagels employee. Alex Simpson, employee at the new location, has been working at Einstein Bros. Bagels for six months. He recently transferred from the store on University Avenue. He said Bralts and Oas have trained him and his fellow employees well in hospitality and quick service. “I’ve learned a lot from Marc and Ryan,” Simpson said. “They know how to make a dream team, especially in the restaurant business.” Because of the snowstorm that overwhelmed the Champaign-Urbana area over the weekend, the restaurant has had a higher customer turnout since the school week began Tuesday. Karaganis said that as people stumble across the new restaurant in the basement, many have reacted with a mixture of surprise and happiness. “People were coming up and saying, ‘This is the best thing ever.’ It was kind of fun,” he said. Balts said the owner’s future plans include opening another Einstein Bros. Bagels in Champaign or Urbana. As for now, they’re excited for how their Illini Union location will do during the spring semester. “We’re excited for the word-of-mouth to really spread, and we’ll see what happens between now and the end of the semester,” Balts said.

Illini soar past Rockets, 63-55 Moore lifts Illinois to postseason victory once again

Quotes in sports movies can inspire


In Illinois’ first round WNIT game against Miami (Ohio), junior guard Amber Moore led Illinois with a season-high 25 points. In its second round game against Eastern Illinois, Moore hit a 3-pointer with less than eight minutes left to give the Illini a lead it wouldn’t relinquish. Illinois would need Moore’s late game heroics once again in the round of 16 game at Toledo on Thursday. Two 3-pointers by Moore with less than six minutes left propelled Illinois to a 63-55 win at Toledo, advancing the Illini to its first WNIT quarterfinals since 2009-10. “We had a lot of poise tonight and played with a lot of heart,” Illinois head coach Matt Bollant said. “I think this is as good of a road win as we’ve had in a long time. To come into this really tough environment against a Toledo team that is in the top 40 in the RPI, this is a really good win for our team.” Entering halftime with a 30-24 deficit, Toledo came out in the second half as the aggressor. The Rockets went on a 23-13 run to begin the half, giving them a 47-43 lead with about eight minutes remaining. With the 29-win Toledo squad continuing to find holes in the defense and the environment playing a factor, Illinois seemed as if its second half struggles throughout the season would get the best of them yet again. “They made several runs at us, and earlier (in the season) we may not have responded like we did tonight,” Bollant said. Like they did against Eastern Illinois on Monday when trailing in the second half, the Illini charged back. A 15-4 Illinois run that included a goahead 3-pointer by Moore with 5 minutes,


Illini to play at Kansas State on Saturday The Illinois women’s basketball will play in the WNIT Quarterfinals at Kansas State on Saturday. The Wildcats defeated Ball State 6048 on Thursday in the third round. Kansas State came into the WNIT with a 15-17 record, earning the Big 12’s automatic bid to tournament after seven of the conference’s 10 teams made the NCAA tournament. The Wildcats defeated Illinois State and Texas Southern in the first two rounds of the WNIT. First-team All-Big 12 selection Brittany Chambers leads the Wildcats with 21.1 points and 7.6 rebounds per game. Chambers scored 23 points, grabbed eight rebounds and recorded six assists in Thursday’s win over Ball State.

Softball looks to rebound vs. No. 24 Nebraska BY NICHOLAS FORTIN STAFF WRITER

The road doesn’t seem to be getting any easier for the Illinois softball team. After what the Illini (10-15, 0-3 Big Ten) called a disappointing opening to their Big Ten schedule, they return to action this weekend at home against No. 24 Nebraska (23-6, 2-0), which went 4-1 last week. “Our team is really disappointed at our opening weekend of Big Ten play, but not discouraged,” head coach Terri Sullivan said. “At this point, we can’t get too high after a win or too low after a loss. We just need to get back to practice, watch game

film, grind it out and prepare for the next challenge. We have to play good softball and play in the moment.” After winning the first Fighting Illini Invitational two weeks ago, Illinois was swept by the Wisconsin last weekend to open Big Ten play. The team will start the weekend Saturday with a doubleheader at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. before finishing up the series with a game at 11:30 a.m. Sunday. “I think we’re going to be better,” Sullivan said. “We’ve really practiced well, everyone has come in with a sense of purpose, and we all came at it wanting to get

better and move on. Nebraska is very tough, but we are too.” The Illini will have a tough task taking on an offensively explosive Nebraska team that has won nine of its games by mercy rule. “They’re an extremely talented and very powerful team offensively,” Sullivan said. “Throughout their entire lineup, they’re very aggressive at the plate. They hit for power and average, and they’re playing really good softball right now. No matter what, you have to expect your

Cubs bid farewell to beloved spring training facility THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MESA, Ariz. — One last time at HoHoKam Stadium, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the seventh inning was changed to include the lyric, “If the Cubs don’t win it’s a shame.” Thursday’s game marked the end of a 17-year stay by the Chicago Cubs at HoHoKam as their spring training home. The club moves into a new facility about four miles away next year.

“It’ll be interesting to see how the new one compares to some of the other nice parks in Arizona,” said 74-year-old Wes Odean, an Elmhurst, Ill., resident down for spring training. “This place has been good, but now we will have something that should be really special.” The fans turned out to say goodbye: 11,635 were in attendance as the Cubs lost 6-4 to the

Mariners. The Cubs No. 5 starter, Carlos Villanueva, went five innings in his final spring training start and allowed four hits, three runs — one earned — and two walks with three strikeouts. “It’s been good the last two times out,” he said. “I have been able to treat it like real game speed and I have been very pleased with the results. I’m

getting a lot more groundballs so today was good. Mariners No. 2 starter Hisashi Iwakuma was scheduled to throw 80 pitches but came out after four innings because a dry skin on his fingertips. He said through an interpreter that it happens every spring and it was nothing to be worried about. Iwakuma had a solid outing

other than a ball he left up to Cubs left fielder Alfonso Soriano, who connected for a tworun shot in the third inning. In his four innings, the righthander allowed five hits, three earned with no walks and four strikeouts. “I felt good, generally, but I threw a couple of pitches too high,” he said through an interpreter. “I am ready for the sea-

son to start.” Seattle’s Michael Morse set the Mariners’ record for spring training home runs with his ninth, coming off Villanueva to lead off the second inning. “He’s a big strong guy, but he is more than that,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. “He works at this craft.” The previous record was eight by Mike Wilson in 2009.

Men’s track preparing for outdoor season, despite weather BY DAN ESCALONA STAFF WRITER

The Illinois men’s track and field team will look to continue its early season success as it transitions from indoor to outdoor season at the Bill Cornell Spring Classic in Carbondale, Ill., this weekend. “Everything is a work in progress, as we hope to continue to see some steady progress in these early season meets,” head coach Mike Turk said. “We mostly just want to see the guys compete and get more race

BASKETBALL FROM PAGE 1B 32 seconds remaining in the game brought the score to 50-47. Illinois would lead the rest of the way. Another 3-pointer by Moore, her fifth of the game, served as the dagger, extending Illinois’ lead to 55-49. With six 3-pointers on the night, the Illini tied a program record for threes made in a single season with 181.

BASEBALL FROM PAGE 1B three or four years, so they have to be good. Then you’ve got to stay healthy. Johnson will attribute his health to luck, but arguably no one on the team does a better job taking care of his arm. He follows the same strict training regimen between starts and has since his freshman year at Illinois. Dickinson hopes his words are always in the back of Johnson’s mind: “It’s your craft. Your arm is your livelihood.” After pitching Friday, he goes for a run Saturday morning, no

experience under our belts in the outdoor events.” The Illini will continue to use the early season outdoor meets as an opportunity to gain valuable experience in the outdoor events that the team did not run during the indoor season, such as the 100-meter dash, the 1,500 meters and the 400-meters relay. Following a title-winning performance at the Big Ten/SEC challenge in the 110-meter hurdles, junior Vanier Joseph was named as the Big Ten Track

Athlete of the Week. This week, Joseph will race the 100 in addition to 110-meters hurdles, which is an event lineup that he hopes to keep consistent. “It’s always a challenge to go from the indoor season to the outdoor season in a span of two weeks without a lot of rest and training time,” Joseph said. “The next few weeks will be mostly just focusing on regaining my strength, endurance and consistency from the end of the indoor season and that will again be the focus this

weekend.” Along with the challenges associated with the outdoor transition, the recent inclement weather has also posed an issue in the young season. The team experienced frequent rain and the threat of storms last weekend in Starkville, Miss., which is a factor that Turk attributes to the Illini not winning more titles. Illinois was originally scheduled to compete at Purdue in West Lafayette, Ind., this weekend, but the meet was canceled due to snow.

“Bad weather was a factor that definitely had an effect on us last week, and that is something that we just have to deal with outdoors,” Turk said. “Becoming more accustomed to competing in bad weather is part of the progression we hope to see in the early season.” The other outdoor-exclusive events in which Illinois will look to show growth are the 1,500 and the 4x100. Senior Ryan Lynn, a regular in the 800 meters, will be running in the 1500 for the first time in his career. The

Illini are also hoping for more progress for the 4x100 squad that was disqualified last weekend after a series of false starts. “It’ll be good to get out there and see what I can do in an event I’m not used to running,” Lynn said. “The goal is for me to compete in the 1,500 for Big Tens later in the season, so this weekend will be the first real chance to build up my familiarity in the event.”

“This postseason has been so good for Amber,” Bollant said. “To get three great games and play with a lot of poise and a lot of heart and hit five threes for us, and also was great in the Buzz for us as well.” Though Moore, who scored 18 points, was key in the late stages of the game once again for the Illini, Ohio native, Karisma Penn, was also a force, leading the team with 23 points and 11 rebounds. “I thought Karisma was a war-

rior down the stretch,” Bollant said. Bollant’s famed ‘Buzz’ defense led to 23 turnovers, including 13 Illinois steals, breaking the Big Ten single-season record. “To force 23 turnovers against this team ... they’re a really good basketball team,” Bollant said. “I’m so proud of this team for the heart that they played with, and the passion.”

expect your opponent to be at their best, and we have to be at ours.” Illinois will not only need to stop the Cornhuskers offense but also endure the lingering winter conditions, which already canceled Wednesday’s game against Illinois State and forced the movement of Friday’s game to make Saturday a

doubleheader. “We have a rule on our team that we can’t talk about the weather, but we just gotta have the snow melt and have the sun out there bright and strong,” Sullivan said. The Illini have been working on a number of things leading into the weekend, mostly centered on bringing out the practice atmosphere in games. “ We’ve been competing against each other because that is where the athlete comes

out in all of us,” senior redshirt catcher Linnea Detrick said. “Now, we just have to take how we compete against each other and transfer it over to the games.” Trust will also be key in Illinois turning its play around. “We just have to trust our preparation,” senior pitcher Pepper Gay said. “We’ve had good practices and we just have to believe. We have to be able to make the routine plays and not let anything get in our heads.”

more than 25 minutes, before a full-body workout. He’ll do workouts to loosen up his shoulder, elbow and leg exercises. Then he plays catch at about 90 feet, sometimes the day after throwing more than 100 pitches. By Sunday, he throws a bullpen of around 45 pitches. A quick turnaround before he’s back throwing off the mound again. It’s surprising, considering pitchers are often held back with innings limits and pitch counts. However, Dickinson wants his pitchers to throw and throw often. He recalls his playing days when he’d throw every day, and when he came back after taking a day

off, it felt like he hadn’t thrown in months. “I feel like that builds strength and stability in your arm,” Dickinson said. “When you don’t throw more, bad things can happen.” “I’ve always been a rubber-arm type guy, but I was never a hard thrower like Kevin either. I just threw all the time. Throwing made it feel better; I didn’t want to sit around getting stiff.” Johnson feels much of the same, and he likes throwing as much as possible. On Monday, he’s playing catch about 180 feet apart. Tuesday: he’s throwing another bullpen; this one may be closer to 25 pitches often

with live hitters. Wednesday: more long toss. Thursday: he’s throwing again at about 90 feet before he gets back on the mound the next day. Johnson is in tune with his body, so earlier in the year when he felt slight shoulder soreness, he went straight to the trainer to get it worked on. That lasted during the past three weeks, and now he says the pain is gone. “Especially at the beginning of the year, you get a little sore, but you just fight through it,” Johnson said. “You get to a certain point where you just stop getting sore. It hurts at first, but then it goes away.”

It’s as if he’s trained his arm to stop feeling sore. When he gets to pitch 80, 90, 100, his arm feels just the same as it did early in the game. Johnson has developed into one of the biggest constants for the Illini during his career. That consistency helped him get drafted in the 31st round by the New York Yankees last summer. He turned the offer down, partly because of the round he was drafted in, but also because there were some things he thought he could improve on in another year in college. He realized that he was giving up too many hits on 0-2 counts, and needed to develop another pitch.

So he developed a slider during the offseason. It’s helped raise his strikeout rate this season, with 31 in 38 2/3 innings compared with just 43 strikeouts through 88 innings in 2012. He took some time Wednesday to look up Oakland. He likely saw a struggling team coming into Illinois Field with a 3-15 record, losers of five in a row. Johnson won’t care — he’ll still prepare the same way, every time. “I’m excited to go out there,” Johnson said. “It doesn’t matter to me who we’re playing.”

Marquette steps over Miami, heads to the Elite Eight Golden Eagles’ 71-61 win earns them 1st trip to quarterfinals since 2003

309 Green 309 E. Green St.

Shane Larkin scored 14 points to lead the No. 2 seed Hurricanes, whose NCAA run to the round of 16 matched the best in school history. Blue missed his first two shots — pining for a foul after throwing up a clumsy airball on a baseline drive — but he got on the board when he picked off a pass and converted the steal into a onehanded jam to give Marquette an 8-4 lead. That got him going. A running one-hander made it 12-4. Blue and Junior Cadougan forced a steal, getting Larkin to com-

mit his second foul in the process. The next time Blue missed, Trent Lockett was there to dunk the rebound and put the Golden Eagles up by nine. Meanwhile, the Hurricanes couldn’t sink a shot, from inside or out. Raphael Akpejiori flung a hook that hit so high off the backboard that it looked better suited for a setup toss in a dunk contest. Miami started 2 for 12, including 0 for 6 from 3-point range, and Larkin’s 3-pointer more than 11 minutes into the game was the first Hurricanes field goal scored by anyone other than Kenny Kadji.

Even when the Hurricanes ran a play perfectly, the shot wouldn’t fall. Trey McKinney Jones had a nice screen set for him in the final minute of the first half, but his open 15-footer rattled in and out. Jones’ miss set the stage for Blue to end the half with an exclamation point. He hit a step-back 15-footer just before the horn to give Marquette a 29-16 lead at the break. He drained the shot, strutted backward downcourt, cocked his right arm and gave Wilson a chest bump as the Golden Eagles headed to the locker room well in control.


Miami shot 21 percent (6 for 29) in the half, and just 9 percent (1 for 11) from beyond the arc. Blue’s basket with 10:03 to play gave Marquette a 51-30 lead. The Hurricanes, who by then had started to press full court, then put together their best sequence of the night, a 7-0 run that cut the lead to 14 with 8½ minutes left. But Wilson’s dunk and Gardner’s inside basket stretched the lead back to 18. Gardner became the scene-stealer in the closing minutes, thumping his chest to the Marquette fans after a dunk in the final four minutes.




Marquette forward Jamil Wilson celebrates his team’s 71-61 win over Miami in an East Regional semifinal in the NCAA tournament Thursday in Washington. Wilson scored 16 points in the victory. Marquette advanced to the Elite Eight for the first time since 2003



WASHINGTON — Vander Blue’s buzzer-beater came at the end of the first half. For a change, Marquette didn’t need one at the end of the game. After sweating through a pair of edge-of-your-seat comebacks in the NCAA tournament, Blue and the Golden Eagles figured out how to put one away early, earning Marquette’s first trip to the Elite Eight since 2003 with a 71-61 win over Miami on Thursday night. Blue, who spurred the rallies that beat Davidson by one and Butler by two, finished with 14 points. He wasn’t Marquette’s leading scorer — that was Jamil Wilson with 16 — but it was Blue’s offensive and defensive energy that pushed the Golden Eagles to a double-digit lead in the first half, a spread Miami never came close to making up. “It’s amazing, man,” Blue said in a postgame television interview. “Everybody said this team wasn’t any good.” The third-seeded Golden Eagles (26-8) will face either topseeded Indiana or No. 4 seed Syracuse in the East Regional final on Saturday, aiming for a spot in the Final Foul for the first time since Dwyane Wade took them there a decade ago.

Wade, the Miami Heat star, tweeted congratulations to coach Jim Larranaga and the Hurricanes — as well as his alma mater. “Congrts on an amazing season for coach L and the canes... after 3 tries in the sweet 16 we finally figured it out. Congrts,” he posted. Marquette was knocked out in the round of 16 the past two years and four of the last five. The game wasn’t hard to decipher. Marquette could shoot; Miami couldn’t. The Hurricanes (29-7) had sentiment on their side, returning to the arena where Larranaga led mid-major George Mason to the Final Four seven years ago, but they made only 35 percent of their field goals and missed 18 of 26 3-pointers. “We just shot the ball so poorly,” Larranaga said, also lamenting some injuries that hindered his team’s preparation this week. “When you can’t put the ball in the basket, you really have a hard time staying with a team like Marquette.” Marquette, meanwhile, shot 54 percent, a stark turnaround from its 38 percent rate from the first two games in the tournament. Davante Gardner added 14 points, with 12 coming in the second half when the Golden Eagles were comfortably ahead.
