Phishing scam hacks UI email accounts String of attacks target University students, CITES STAFF WRITER
An aggressive phishing campaign successfully attacked about 36 University email accounts within the last month, and CITES specialists said many other accounts may have been compromised. “It’s the worst scam I’ve seen since I started in 2005,” said Brian Mertz, chief communications officer at CITES. “This campaign is particularly aggressive.” In the latest string of attacks, hackers have targeted University students through “lures” that scare students into giving away sensitive information like their email passwords. With that information, hackers use the University accounts to spam others. “(Hackers will) tell you you won’t have your email account anymore,” Mertz said. “Or they’ll tell you to update your bank account information for security reasons.” Hackers spam randomly generated lists of email addresses, some of which are made up. These fake addresses cause thousands of messages to bounce back to the inbox of the hacked email account. As a result of the amount of spam coming from University email accounts, many University email addresses have been blacklisted, or blocked from sending emails, by several companies that provide spam

Hackers phish for sensitive information by using a “lure” in an email. The lure can be anything, most commonly money or fear. Emails tell users they will win money or their account will be blocked if they do not give sensitive information such as a username or password. When students give the username and password for their illinois.edu account, for example, their account is used to spam thousands of other accounts. The massive amount of spam coming out of illinois.edu addresses has caused the University to get blacklisted. When a domain is blacklisted, emails can no longer be sent from that domain.

Tips from Cindy YewdallThackeray, senior security outreach specialist at CITES:
Sexual Assault Awareness Month begins
1. Phishing attacks can come not just via email, but via Facebook, Twitter, texts or even a phone call. 2. When typing any information into a webpage or a return email, think about the information you’re giving away. What can a hacker do with that information? 3. The sender of an email can be faked. If an email or link looks suspicious, call the institution it says it came from to verify that it really came from them. 4. Hover over links in emails to see where they direct you to. If you click, check the address bar to make sure you are at the website you are supposed to be at. 5. Keep separate passwords for each different account.

FROM THE EDITOR
Readers: Take ownership of your news experience; We want to hear from you Email us — we’ll respond. Call us — we’ll answer. Tweet at us — we’ll reply. However you want to reach out to us, my staff and I are here to listen. And from our end, we’re already rethinking how we use DailyIllini.com and our army of social media outlets. Select stories from the next day’s paper, especially those with immediate news value, won’t have to wait until midnight to be published to the website. And we’re off to a great start — a second-day snow day story recorded a large number of hits shortly after it was posted Monday night. With that, social media will continue be the cornerstone in moving information and spreading ideas — quickly but accurately. We were able to provide you with a story less than 10 minutes after we originally tweeted out classes were canceled last Monday. We were able to do that because it was a by-product of the news staff’s planning. All we needed to do was update the first few paragraphs.

wasn’t supposed to be like this. Walking into the Illini Media Building as a freshman in 2010 or being an assistant editor last semester, I never imagined myself in this position. I never imagined myself leading a staff of 120-plus people and I never imagined myself managing a budget. I could go on. But just a couple of weeks into my tenure, I’m already finding this experience more rewarding than I could have ever hoped. But I’m still understanding my role; I was previously an assistant sports editor, so you can imagine that this job brings a similar but also a new set of responsibilities. That list starts and ends with being accountable to you, our readers, who we would not exist without. I have some ideas, but I also want to hear yours.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month begins Monday, and educational events on the subject will be hosted around the community to raise awareness throughout the month about the issue. Molly McLay, co-chair of the SAAM committee and assistant director of the Women’s Resources Center, said the events aim to change the public’s response to sexual assault. “It’s important to know how to support survivors, how to say things that show you care about them and respect them,” she said. Detective Rob Murphy, of UIPD and a SAAM committee member, said many sexual assault victims don’t come forward, making sexual assault one of the most underreported crimes. In 2011, there were 12 total reported incidents of forcible sex offenses on the main campus, according to UIPD. The total number of reported incidents
for 2012 will not be verified until September. McLay said the public has a tendency to immediately bombard survivors with questions about what they were wearing or doing before the crime took place, which she referred to as victim-blaming statements. She said this is a reason why survivors are less likely to come forward. “Those are all things that put the responsibility on the survivor
instead of where it belongs, which is on the person who committed the crime,” she said. To raise awareness and educate students about the issue, many organizations around campus are hosting events throughout the month. The campus’s seventh annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes will take place Friday in order to combat
Total reported incidents of forcible sex offenses on main campus 2009: 7 2010: 12 2011: 12 2012*: 12 “Forcible sex offense” is defined as “any sexual act directed at another person, forcibly and/ or against that person’s will or not forcibly or against the person’s will where the victim is incapable of giving consent because of his/her temporary or permanent mental or physical incapacity or because of his/her youth. Includes forcible rape, forcible sodomy, sexual assault with an object, and forcible fondling.”** *Number according to UIPD. 2012 totals will be verified by September 2013. **Definition according to “Clery Crime Definitions” provided by the Division of Public Safety SOURCE: UIPD ANNUAL SECURITY REPORT FOR 2011

Industrial design sophomores participated Friday in Discarded to Precious, a competition challenging design students to collect discarded items and transform them into something “precious.” Competition results will be announced Monday afternoon. The competition, hosted by the Technology Entrepreneur Center, allows student designers to “look at everyday objects through a new lens,” said Deana McDonagh, a coordinator of the competition and associate professor of industrial design. “They are looking at something that’s been thrown away, discarded and has no value, and they... transforming it into something precious,” McDonagh said. The students had three weeks to create their final product. Kevin Reeder, a coordinator of the competition and associate professor of

Many student competitors were eager for their creations to be presented to the public. Competitor Kelly Lin’s project, “Lutos,” is a candle holder made from pieces of discarded Christmas ornaments. Lin, a sophomore in FAA, said she first decided on the specific type of material she wanted to use before deciding on her final product, saying she “just wanted to keep the integrity of the material.” Lin said the competition taught her to keep her mind open to using out of the ordinary materials. “This project really made us (designers) go beyond our comfort zone.” Lin said. “As a sophomore, I’m just experimenting with a lot of different areas, but I’m really interested in con-

SEXUAL ASSAULT FROM PAGE 1A sexual assault, rape and gender violence. Victoria Andros, event cochair and junior in AHS, said at the event, male students will walk two laps around the Quad, which is approximately a mile, wearing in red, high-heeled shoes. She said the goal of the event is to combat sexual assault, rape and gender violence. Andros said her committee added more educational elements to this year’s event to correct the assumption that the event is a social function, including a 50-shirt display from the Clothesline Project, which will be showcased outside Foellinger Auditorium. Other registered student organizations at the University are also hosting awareness events. The University chapter of Amnesty International is hosting its annual SlutWalk on Thursday. The event is based on comments from a Canadian police officer, Constable Michael Sanguinetti, who said women could prevent their own rape if they dressed more respectably. The walk is intended to change the way people respond to sexual assault victims, said Ben Daniels, co-organizer of the event and senior in LAS. He said the event is open to both men and women because conversations about sexual assault need to take place with both genders. Stephanie Ames, SAAM committee co-chair and advocate at Rape Advocacy, Counseling and Education Services, said in an email that people need to talk about sexual assault because ignoring the issue will not stop it from happening. “If we can create awareness and spread facts instead of perpetuating myths, we can work to create a safer community and world,” she said.

PHISHING FROM PAGE 1A control services. “Spammers aren’t trying to figure out if it’s a real email address or not,” said Cindy Yewdall-Thackeray, senior security outreach specialist for CITES. “They’re just hoping one of them works.” Out of the hundreds of thousands of emails spammed, only a few need to fall for the phish email for the campaign to be successful, Yewdall-Thackeray said. The hackers are able to access emails through tools like the Illinois online directory, in addition to using randomly generated lists. The phishing emails vary in appearance and type of information requested. One of the most recent phishing emails sent to illinois.edu addresses appeared to be from Barclays bank and asked users for sensitive banking information. Ross Wolf, a senior in Engineering, said having passwords that are different and complex won’t guarantee safety for a person’s account, but it helps. Wolf interned over the summer for MITRE, a non-profit organization that conducts cyber security research for the government. Hackers guess different combinations of commonly used words in passwords, a method often referred to as a dictionary attack. Wolf said this is why it is important to vary passwords by using capital and lowercase letters, symbols and numbers. He also said not reusing passwords across accounts is another layer of protection users can add. “Don’t reuse passwords for accounts, particularly any that have sensitive information,” Wolf said. Users who have multiple accounts may have trouble remembering a lot of different passwords for each account. To help with this, Wolf said people can either practice typing it multiple times or can make a password out of a sentence. He suggested using a sentence such as “four Horses walked in to a bar and ordered Beer,” because 4Hwi2ab&oB would be an effective password and not difficult for the user to remember. No matter how complex the password is, Mertz said people should not be so quick to give sensitive information away. “People should be guarding their passwords much more closely than they are right now,” he said.

Youssef may face charges for insulting Morsi, Islam
Tickets for ’Ebert Fest‘ go on sale The Virginia Theater will host annual festival
Popular Egyptian TV satirist released on bail
DAILY ILLINI STAFF REPORT
BY SARAH EL DEEB THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CAIRO — Egypt’s most popular television satirist, who every week skewers the Islamist president and hard-line clerics on his Jon Stewart-style show, was released on bail Sunday but could face charges of insulting the country’s leader and Islam. Bassem Youssef is the most prominent critic of President Mohammed Morsi to be called in for questioning in recent weeks, in what the opposition says is a campaign to intimidate critics amid wave after wave of political unrest in deeply polarized Egypt. Arrest warrants have been issued for five prominent antigovernment activists accused of instigating violence. Deputy chief prosecutor Hassan Yassin denied the nearly fivehour interrogation was part of an intimidation campaign and said his department was enforcing the law and seeking to establish some guidelines on freedom of expression. “The prosecution is the protector of social rights and we work on implementing the law. ... There must be guidelines for those working in the media to observe
AMR NABIL THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
A bodyguard secures popular Egyptian television satirist Bassem Youssef, who has come to be known as Egypt's Jon Stewart, as he enters Egypt's state prosecutors office to face accusations of insulting Islam and the country's Islamist leader in Cairo, Egypt on Sunday. so as not violate the law,” Yassin told The Associated Press. Morsi last week accused private media of fanning violence and argued that it was being used for political aims. But Yassin denied that the prosecutor’s office was operating at the behest of the presidency to go after Morsi’s critics, saying it has also interrogated and sentenced Islamists. Morsi appointed the chief prosecutor late last year despite an outcry from many in the judiciary who accused him of trampling on their right to choose the top prosecutor. A court ruling last week declared Morsi’s appointment
void, a verdict he will likely appeal. “There is no contact between us and the presidency. ... Just like we moved against someone who insults Christianity, we moved against someone who is accused of insulting Islam,” he said. Youssef is the host of the weekly political satire show known for his skits lampooning Morsi and Egypt’s newly empowered Islamist political class. But he also mocks the opposition and the media. The fast-paced show has attracted a wide viewership, while at the same time earning its fair share of detractors. Youssef has been a frequent target of lawsuits, most
of them brought by Islamist lawyers who accused him of “corrupting morals” or violating “religious principles.” Youssef frequently imitates Morsi’s speeches and gestures. He has fact-checked the president, and in one particularly popular episode earlier this year, he played video clips showing remarks by Morsi, made in 2010 before he became president, calling Zionists “pigs.” The remarks caused a brief diplomatic tiff with the U.S. administration, and Morsi had to issue a statement to defuse the flap. In his last episode this week, Youssef thanked Morsi for providing him with so much material.

District Attorney, wife shot dead in rural home BY NICHOLAS RICCARDI AND NOMAAN MERCHANT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
KAUFMAN, Texas — Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland took no chances after one of his assistant prosecutors was gunned down two months ago. McLelland said he carried a gun everywhere he went and was extra careful when answering the door at his home. “I’m ahead of everybody else because, basically, I’m a soldier,” the 23-year Army veteran said in an interview less than two weeks ago. On Saturday, he and his wife were found shot to death in their rural home just outside the town of Forney, about 20 miles from Dallas. While investigators gave no motive for the killings, Forney Mayor Darren Rozell said: “It appears this was not a random act.” “Everybody’s a little on edge and a little shocked,” he said. The slayings came less than two weeks after Colorado’s prison chief was shot to death at his front door, apparently by an exconvict, and a couple of months after Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse was killed in a parking lot a block from his courthouse office. No arrests have been made in Hasse’s slaying Jan. 31. McLelland, 63, is the 13th prosecutor killed in the U.S. since the National Association of District Attorneys began keeping count in the 1960s. Sheriff David Byrnes would not give details Sunday of how the killings unfolded and said there was nothing to indicate for certain whether the DA’s slaying was connected to Hasse’s. El Paso County, Colo., sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Joe Roybal said investigators had found no evidence so far connecting the Texas killings to the Colorado case, but added: “We’re examining all possibilities.” Colorado’s corrections director, Tom Clements, was killed March
19 when he answered the doorbell at his home outside Colorado Springs. Evan Spencer Ebel, a white supremacist and former Colorado inmate suspected of shooting Clements, died in a shootout with Texas deputies two days later about 100 miles from Kaufman. McLelland himself, in an Associated Press interview shortly after the Colorado slaying, raised the possibility that Hasse was gunned down by a white supremacist gang. The weekend slayings raised concerns for prosecutors across Texas, and some were taking extra security precautions. Byrnes said security would be increased at the courthouse in Kaufman but declined to say if or how other prosecutors in McLelland’s office would be protected. Harris County District Attorney Mike Anderson said he accepted the sheriff’s offer of 24-hour security for him and his family after learning about the slayings, mostly over concerns for his family’s safety. Anderson said also would take precautions at his Houston office, the largest one in Texas, which has more than 270 prosecutors. “I think district attorneys across Texas are still in a state of shock,” Anderson said Sunday. McLelland, elected DA in 2010, said his office had prosecuted several cases against racist gangs, who have a strong presence around Kaufman County, a mostly rural area dotted with subdivisions, with a population of about 104,000. “We put some real dents in the Aryan Brotherhood around here in the past year,” he said. In recent years, the DA’s office also prosecuted a case in which a justice of the peace was found guilty of theft and burglary and another case in which a man was convicted of killing his former girlfriend and her 10-year-old daughter. McLelland said he carried a gun everywhere, even to walk his dog around town, a bedroom community for the Dallas area.

Hope for immigration reform after unlikely deal BY PHILIP ELLIOTT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON — Even with one of the largest hurdles to an immigration overhaul overcome, optimistic lawmakers on Sunday cautioned they had not finished work on a bill that would provide a path to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. The AFL-CIO and the pro-business U.S. Chamber of Commerce reached a deal late Friday that would allow tens of thousands of low-skill workers into the country. Yet despite the unusual agreement between the two powerful lobbying groups, lawmakers from both parties conceded that the negotiations were not finished. “With the agreement between business and labor, every major policy issue has been resolved,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, the New York Democrat who brokered the labor-business deal. But it hasn’t taken the form of a bill and the eight senators searching for a compromise haven’t met about the potential breakthrough.
Yet just before lawmakers began appearing on Sunday shows, Sen. Marco Rubio warned he was not ready to lend his name — and political clout — to such a deal without hashing out the details. “Reports that the bipartisan group of eight senators have agreed on a legislative proposal are premature,” said Rubio, a Florida Republican who is among the lawmakers working on legislation. Rubio, a Cuban-American who is weighing a presidential bid in 2016, is a leading figure inside his party. Lawmakers will be closely watching any deal for his approval and his skepticism about the process did little to encourage optimism. Rubio, who is the group’s emissary to conservatives, called the agreement “a starting point”. The detente between the nation’s leading labor federation and the powerful business lobbying group still needs senators’ approval, including a nod from Sen. John McCain, the Arizona Republican
whose previous efforts came up short. Schumer negotiated the deal between AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka and Chamber of Commerce head Tom Donohue during a late-Friday phone call. Under the compromise, the government would create a new “W’’ visa for low-skill workers who would earn wages paid to Americans or the prevailing wages for the industry they’re working in, whichever is higher. The Labor Department would determine prevailing wage based on customary rates in specific localities, so that it would vary from city to city. The proposed measure would secure the border, crack down on employers, improve legal immigration and create a 13-year pathway to citizenship for the millions of illegal immigrants already here. It’s a major second-term priority of President Barack Obama’s and would usher in the most dramatic changes to the faltering U.S. immigration system in more
than two decades. During the last week, an immigration deal seemed doomed. But the breakthrough late Friday restarted the talks. Ultimately the new “W’’ visa program would be capped at 200,000 workers a year, but the number of visas would fluctuate, depending on unemployment rates, job openings, employer demand and data collected by a new federal bureau being pushed by labor groups as an objective monitor of the market, according to an official involved with the talks who also spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of a formal announcement. A “safety valve” would allow employers to exceed the cap, the official said, if they could show need and pay premium wages, but any additional workers brought in would be subtracted from the next year’s cap. The workers could move from employer to employer and would be able to petition for permanent residency and ultimately seek U.S. citizenship. Neither is pos-
sible for temporary workers now. “As to the 11 million (illegal immigrants), they’ll have a pathway to citizenship, but it will be earned, it will be long, and it will be hard, and I think it is fair,” Graham said. The new program would fill needs employers say they have that are not currently met by U.S. immigration programs. Most industries don’t have a good way to hire a steady supply of foreign workers because there’s one temporary visa program for low-wage nonagricultural workers but it’s capped at 66,000 visas per year. Separately, the new immigration bill also is expected to offer many more visas for high-tech workers, new visas for agriculture workers, and provisions allowing some agriculture workers already in the U.S. a speedier path to citizenship than that provided to other illegal immigrants, in an effort to create a stable agricultural workforce.

Ill-defined terms plague gay marriage debate
NATE BEELER THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
Students should welcome shift in campustown businesses
he campus environment is changing. Businesses and skyscrapers have been and will continue to crop up on the landscape, issuing in new restaurants, clothing stores, apartments and a hotel — all of this between Fifth and Wright Streets alone.
In just the last week, Einstein Bros. Bagels opened in the basement of the Illini Union, KoFusion announced a new location to be built this summer in Urbana, and Follett’s said it was closing at the end of May. A little further back, Jersey Mike’s opened next to Cold Stone Creamery, Bankier Apartments announced its plans to demolish Gameday Spirit’s building to make way for a 14-story apartment building, and Wendy’s returned to campus on Sixth Street. And the future holds even more. Just as one business closes its doors, another swoops in to buy up the highly valuable real estate that lines Green Street. The types of businesses and shops that litter campustown change to accommodate the needs and wants of the students. They are a product of what we want in the places we want to go. Contrary to what the latest recession taught us, a closing business is not necessarily the sign of a downturn in the economy. At least here, it’s a sign that something bigger and better is about to be born. With every new business and shiny new skyscraper on campus, the University becomes a little more attractive to students present and future. Undoubtedly, many of us ventured here from the brightly lit and densely populated suburbs, while others ventured from more rural areas to experience the feel of a so-called micro-urban community. For students from the suburbs, the feel of home lives at the heart of campus, and for students from more rural areas, a taste of the big city thrives within a few walkable blocks. The more businesses we can pack into this small area, the more convenient it becomes for students without cars or other means of transportation to do the kinds of shopping they are used to when they are back at home. And that sense of home can be very marketable to a prospective student who is still a little afraid to move away. Even to the eager high school senior who is ready to escape the chains of parents at home, the hustle and bustle of every new store looks to be a new adventure. Perhaps the only downside to the growth is also its greatest asset — the location. Campustown supports lucrative business from August to May, but once the tassels are turned in the spring, the University nearly vacates. Despite all the good that businesses can see here, they all but shut down during the summer, losing out on three months of valuable sales. This is also the only time that many families feel comfortable enough to bring their children here. Because of this, the average C-U resident cannot and will not get the opportunity to use these businesses. Open or closed, changing business is a healthy part of a community alive and well. Goods are continuously exchanged and students are constantly interested, spending money to maintain the local businesses. Campustown may be changing, and we welcome it with open arms and open pocketbooks.

JOE VANDEHEY Opinions columnist
Time will always change, so should laws IMRAN KHAN Opinions columnist
imes are changing. Our society has become more accepting of same-sex marriage and LGBT rights. Consider this: In 1996, a mere 27 percent of Americans believed samesex marriage should be legal. But now, according to a recent CBS poll, 53 percent of Americans were in agreement that same-sex couples should be allowed to marry. The support only continues to grow — so much so, that the highest court of the land is now considering its legality. As the Supreme Court begins conducting oral arguments about the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8, both of which restrict marriage to one man and one woman, we have to realize the potential impact of these cases. These very decisions shape societal values for generations to come. You don’t have to look further than the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Brown v. Board of Education nearly 60 years ago. Brown set precedent for academic institutions, eliminating racial segregation in schools. While it may seem like a preposterous notion to fathom today, this issue once divided the country. Yet, Chief Justice Earl Warren and the Court understood the importance of educational opportunity for all Americans, regardless of race, stating, “We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of ‘separate but equal’ has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.”
It was a decision that spoke volumes about political and social change. 1969’s Supreme Court case of Tinker v. Des Moines is another example. The Court held that students were entitled to freedom of speech and further expression of their views, after students were wrongly suspended from school for wearing black armbands in protest of the Vietnam War. Had a case like this gone the other way, perhaps our rights now as students would be limited. It is those cases, those moments,
Discrimination facing the LGBT community continues to tear at the weave of our social fabric. which have propelled us forward in the name of progress and equality. Because if the Supreme Court fails to act when the issue is most controversial and most relevant, how can they expect to be an influential force in societal change? Both Brown and Tinker are controversial cases exemplifying decisions that our generation would have thought to be easy to make. But we haven’t quite reached the finish line. Discrimination facing the LGBT community continues to tear at the weave of our social fabric. Signed in 1996, The Defense of Marriage Act defines “marriage” under federal law as a legal union between a man and a woman. Though the bill wasn’t as publicly controversial at that point in time, shifting societal
beliefs undoubtedly require that it now be repealed. Even the American Academy of Pediatrics recently released a study finding that children need supportive, nurturing parents — regardless of the couple’s sexual orientation. Similarly, adoptive and foster parents should be able to care for a child regardless of sexual orientation. It is crystal clear — there is no reason why a same-sex couple cannot raise a child. So why can’t they also get married? African Americans had to endure discrimination for nearly a century and a half before Americans as a whole reflected upon the meaning of equality, prompting the passage of the Civil Rights Act. I cannot imagine the state of our equality would exclude the LGBT community. And government action once again is needed to reaffirm this belief. Our actions must now be reflective of the acceptance we should have for all men and women of these United States, despite the individual differences we all possess. However, the one difference we must not share is the hindrance of the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness that our friends, families and fellow citizens alike rightfully deserve. I want to be a citizen in a society that stands for justice, and promotes peace and prosperity. A part of a nation that treats everyone as equals — regardless of where they come from, what the color of their skin is or what their sexual orientation may be. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., hopefully we will continue to strive to be a nation that does not judge each person by all of these inferences, but rather, the content of our character. Time will always change; and so must we.

Saving plans need to address tuition increases TOLU TAIWO Opinions columnist
hen I was just a baby, my mom started to save up some money. Every month, she’d make it her mission to put a little bit of money into my savings account. And when my brothers were born, she started doing the same thing for them. The primary goal? Get enough money to put toward our college tuition. Although she put in money, every month, without fail, the amount never grew to more than a couple thousand of dollars — nowhere close to the equivalent of a University of Illinois tuition bill. It’s really no surprise: today, the amount of U of I tuition is nearly five times more than it was during the 1990-1991 school year when I was born.. She didn’t know it at the time — and most parents don’t — but there’s a way to avoid the inevitable increase of tuition costs. She could have entered into the Private College 529 Plan, started saving up her money and hoped to God that I would choose to go to private institutions such as Illinois Wesleyan or Brandeis University. The Private College 529 Plan is a way for parents to save money for their children that want to go to a private institution. It’s like other college savings programs, but the beauty of this plan is that it locks in tuition costs at the moment parents start paying. According to the New York Times, if parents decide to put forth $10,000 for their children’s $40,000 tuition, their certificate would account for one-fourth of the total tuition cost. If tuition increases over the years, to $60,000 for example, the certificate would still be worth one-fourth of the tuition, now $15,000. Private College Plan 529 is far
from flawless, though. First, it only has 273 member schools, or 273 schools that will honor the savings plan. Curiously, that doesn’t include schools like Northwestern or Yale. The plan doesn’t include all of the well-known private colleges — which baffles me, since these are the institutions most kids strive to attend. If my mom saved money in the plan, but I got accepted into William and Mary, well, too bad. However, my bigger problem with the plan lies in the name, specifically, the “Private College” part.
The Private College 529 Plan is a way for parents to save money for their children that want to go to a private institution. The reason that the Private College 529 Plan exists is because the costs for a private institution are obviously higher than that of public institutions. Public schools have an advantage since they receive state money. Private colleges, on the other hand, don’t have this luxury; in fact, their tuition is rising 6 percent each year. Besides, there are other plans for in-state institutions and colleges, so it’s not like parents can’t save up money for their kids to go public school. The problem is that the Private College 529 Plan is the only college plan that ensures that parents don’t need to keep up with rising tuition costs. And many of these plans only apply to in-state schools, thus restricting the kid from going to out-of-state schools. There are
very few programs for out-of-state tuition — which is a shame, since a kid from Michigan who goes to U of I pays around the same price as private school tuition. Either the Private College 529 needs to start adding in public school exceptions (at the very least, flagship universities), or the government should work with other public school programs and make sure that all plans lock parents in and help them with the rising cost of tuition. This limiting list of universities pigeonholes kids to only attend certain schools, and while the schools on the list are good, they are missing out on other options. Parents see that this plan saves them the most money, but that also potentially puts pressure on their kids to go to one of the 273 schools. They miss out on the opportunities of going to the other 4,222 schools that may be a better fit for their learning styles and course of study. As undergraduate and graduate students, we’re past the point where we can benefit from this plan. We are, somehow or another, already paying for tuition. But the plan still affects our future kids, or younger siblings or cousins. Though we may not have a personal stake now, it’s for our benefit that Private College 529 tweak its plan, because somewhere down the road, it would be nice if our future freshmen could walk into U of I, confident that they were able to pay off even a semester of tuition. My mom started saving for my tuition when I was young, and right now, millions of moms are starting to do the same thing. It’s plans like Private College 529 that have the responsibility to make sure more of them can start college and reassure their ability to pay tuition costs.

he Supreme Court could use a mathematician’s touch. If there is one skill that mathematicians possess, it is the ability to define things properly. (Heck, we even define what it means to be “well-defined.”) This is not just ego; this trait has been pointed out by several non-mathematical friends. So you can imagine, dear reader, how I twitched and spasmed as I listened to the Supreme Court debate over same-sex marriage last week, a series of so-called logical arguments based on so many ill-defined terms. Two phrases in particular stood out in the arguments of those in favor of traditional marriage: “family” and “traditional marriage” itself. Family often gets defined as just the nuclear, white-picket-fence family — that is, parents and their biological children, no one else. And yet, it then gets placed into arguments where a much larger notion of family is required. Take, for instance, the argument that without a father, a child will grow up without a masculine role model. This discounts the uncles, grandfathers, godfathers, stepfathers, (much) older brothers and cousins within an extended family, not to mention the community leaders, friends of the family, neighbors, teachers and the occasional fictional character who all exist outside the extended family. In restricting the definition of family so tightly, traditional marriage advocates marginalize many other important family structures, including adoptive parents, foster parents and single parents, such as widows and widowers. My own parents divorced and remarried. This did not leave me with something less than a family; if anything, it left me with twice as much family. With the term “marriage,” at least, all sides agree on what the word means legally. The problem comes when traditional marriage advocates refer to marriage as it is now as also being the traditional form of marriage. The last major shift in the definition of marriage happened quite recently in this country, with the Loving v. Virginia decision that declared that marriage did not depend upon the race of those who entered into it. This was not merely a change in the legal definition: It also had a great impact on the social definition of marriage. In the years since the Loving case, we as a society have come to embrace the idea that race has no bearing on marriage. If we go back further, we see even greater changes. We see marriages of women who were only in their mid-teens. We see the popularity of arranged marriages. And let us not forget that in many cultures, women were historically considered property owned first by their father and then by their husband. We no longer consider women to be chattel, and as a result the whole notion (and arguably the purpose) of marriage has changed drastically over its history. Even the idea that, whatever other shifts have occurred, marriage has always been between one man and one woman, is still untrue. A number of cultures across the world have permitted polyamorous unions and same-sex unions. Things get even messier if we try to accept “biblical marriage” and “one man, one woman” as synonymous. There are multiple types of marriage in the Bible beyond one man and one woman. Many tales in the Old Testament and the Torah include polygamy (Jacob, Abraham, Solomon) with polygamy referring not just to having multiple wives but also to having a wife together with a female slave or concubine. Chapter 22 of Deuteronomy says that a man who rapes an unmarried – and unpledged – virgin is forced to pay a fine to her father and marry her. Levirate marriage was a custom of marrying a childless widow to her dead husband’s brother to carry on the family line. In neither of these cases am I aware of any restriction on the number of wives a man may have. If a man already had a wife and his married brother died without descendants, the first man would now have two wives. The Bible is certainly not a good example of a “one man, one woman” tradition. If we want to have a civilized debate over marriage equality in our courts and elsewhere, we must start with an understanding of the very words we are debating over. Otherwise, we will do nothing but talk past one another time after time.

Hal Hargrave Jr., who is paralyzed from the neck down after a crash when he was 17, shares a laugh with his trainer during his physical therapy session at a gym in Claremont, Calif. on Wednesday.
Paralyzed athlete creates foundation to help others BY JOHN ROGERS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CLAREMONT, Calif. — As he rolls through the front door of the sprawling Claremont Club fitness center and shouts a friendly hello here and there, for just a moment it’s as if nothing has changed since Hal Hargrave Jr. was the big, friendly teenage gym rat who haunted this place. The burly Hargrave’s head was filled with dreams of playing college baseball as he strode into the gym, stretched out on a bench and pressed 300 pounds above his body. Only these days Hargrave uses that strength to move his wheelchair in and out of the gym, where he still works out 20 hours a week and knows just about everybody in the place.
These days, though, Hargrave’s goal is to get walking again, something he lost the ability to do on July 26, 2007, when he swerved his truck to avoid debris in the road. It inspired him to create the Be Perfect Foundation, a nonprofit charity that has raised $1.2 million to provide wheelchairs, make homes more accessible and, most importantly, keep more than 100 people in rehabilitation programs they otherwise couldn’t afford. All of which would have been pretty impressive if Hargrave had just stopped there. But he didn’t. He persuaded the Claremont Club president to turn a racquetball court and a basketball court into a wing for people with paralyzing injuries. Then he got Proj-
ect Walk, a spinal rehabilitation center where he’d been treated, to open its first franchise in this bucolic college town 35 miles east of Los Angeles for those who couldn’t make the commute to its San Diego area headquarters. “Here’s a 17-year-old boy who had a debilitating, life-changing accident,” said Mike Alpert, who runs the Claremont Club and whose daughter has known Hargrave since the two were in kindergarten. “So many people that go through that would give up. Would be depressed. Would blame everybody else. Here’s a young man who just said, ‘I have a calling to change the world and to help people through what’s happening to me. And then he goes out and does it! How special is that?”

Pope celebrates Easter mass BY FRANCES D’EMILIO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis marked Christianity’s most joyous day with a passionate plea for world peace, celebrating his first Easter Sunday as pontiff in the enthusiastic company of more than 250,000 people who overflowed from St. Peter’s Square. With eloquent words in his Easter message, Francis lamented enduring conflicts in the Middle East, on the Korean peninsula and elsewhere and remembered the world’s neediest people. With physical gestures, he illustrated the personal, down-to-earth caring he brings as a pastor to this new papacy — cradling a disabled child held out to him in the crowd and delightedly accepting a surprise gift thrust at him. Francis shared in his flock’s exuberance as they celebrated Christianity’s core belief that Jesus Christ rose from the dead following crucifixion. After Mass in flower-bedecked St. Peter’s Square, he stepped aboard an open-topped white popemobile for a cheerful spin through pathways in the joyous crowd, kissing babies, smiling constantly and patting children on the head. One admirer of both the pope and his favorite soccer team from his Argentine homeland, Saints of San Lorenzo, insisted that Francis take a team jersey he was waving at the pontiff — “take it, go ahead, take it,” the man seemed to be telling the pope.
ALESSANDRA TARANTINO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Finally, a delighted Francis obliged, briefly holding up the shirt, and the crowd roared in approval. He handed the shirt to an aide in the front seat, and the popemobile continued its whirl through the square. In a poignant moment, Francis cradled and kissed a physically disabled boy passed to him from the crowd. The child worked hard to make one of his arms hug the pope back, then succeeded, smiling in satisfaction as the pope patiently waited for the boy to give his greeting. Francis has repeatedly put concern for the poor and suffering at the center of his mes-
Caroline Kennedy strives to impart love of poetry with young readers THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Beginning work a few years ago on her latest book, an anthology of poems for young people, Caroline Kennedy found herself looking through one of her mother’s scrapbooks. She burst into laughter, she says, as she came across a poem that her brother John, as a youngster, had picked out and copied as a gift to their poetryloving mom. “Willie with a thirst for gore, Nailed his sister to the door,” went the poem, by an unknown author. “Mother said with humor quaint, ‘Careful, Willie, don’t scratch the paint!’” The poem “brought back memories of our relationship,” Kennedy told a bookstore audience this week. “I laughed so hard.” But for Kennedy, now 55 and a mother of three grown children, there’s a deeper meaning to that irreverent ditty. Poetry was a central part of her home life growing up. She and John regularly copied out and illustrated poems for their mother, Jackie, upon birthdays and Mother’s

The Roman Catholic leader aimed his Easter greetings at “every house and every family, especially where the suffering is greatest, in hospitals, in prisons.” Francis prayed that Jesus would inspire people to “change hatred into love, vengeance into forgiveness, war into peace.”
Kennedy shares childhood BY JOCELYN NOVECK
Days. Sometimes, they’d recite them too, “if we were feeling competitive.” And at family gatherings with their grandmother, there were frequent challenges to recite Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s famous (and famously lengthy) “Paul Revere’s Ride.” Only Uncle Ted, it seems, was able to recite it in its entirety. Now, with her 10th book, Kennedy wants to share with young readers the love for the written word that she feels her poetryfilled childhood helped instill in her (even though her own son, she quips, hates reading and only likes two poems.) Hence the title: “Poems to Learn By Heart.” “It was a combination of remembering my own childhood and thinking about gifts I’d been given,” she said in an interview last week at her husband’s downtown Manhattan design firm, explaining the genesis of the latest book. “And working in schools and seeing the role that poetry can play in kids’ lives.” It’s also an effort to promote literacy, a cause Kennedy has supported in a number of ways. “Fourteen percent of Ameri-
can adults can’t read,” Kennedy says. “It’s a slow-motion disaster.” She believes poetry can help. “Kids need a way in,” she says, “and reading needs to be fun. Poetry can give them that — with the current emphasis on poetry slams, and these other open mic events. That’s actually why I think poetry has a chance.” Kennedy’s current book — a collection of poems from various authors, with introductions by her to each section, and vivid illustrations by John J Muth — is her fourth to focus on poetry. Her earlier books, especially “The Best Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis,” have been huge sellers, pulling in numbers unheard of for poetry anthologies. “She’s committed to becoming an advocate for the written word and poetry in particular,” says Gretchen Young, who edited all of Kennedy’s poetry books at Hyperion, working with the author to cull down huge numbers of beloved poems. “And she knows she can do that.” As to what else Kennedy can do with her high profile — and the unique and powerful celebrity status she’s held since she was a little girl in the Kennedy White House — that is a question that people never cease to ask.

PATEL FROM PAGE 1A It’s clear that our online presence will dominate. DailyIllini.com will be the go-to source for up-to-date information as we move
forward. But we love our hard copy too. For example, last Monday’s paper looked a bit different, it was the first time in a long time that sports was featured on the front page.
After the Illini held off Colorado two days earlier, we thought it would be appropriate for Illinois basketball to be a Page One story — regardless of the outcome that Sunday. Though the tip time was unfavorably late, we tried
something new — a photo with a quick summary, referring you to the sports section. We’ve traditionally been conservative with our front-page coverage, but this year, you’ll see the stories that matter most to
you first — including sports and features. And when appropriate, columns, too. This is just a taste, a preview of what is to come and what can potentially be accomplished. So join the conversation this year. Take owner-
ship of the news. After all, we’re working for you, our readers. That’s how it’s supposed to be. Darshan is a junior in Media. He can be reached at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @drshnpatel.

WNIT quarterfinal loss ends Bollant’s first year BY JOHNATHAN HETTINGER STAFF WRITER
The Illinois women’s basketball team lived on opponents’ mistakes all season. The Illini forced 23.4 turnovers per game, good for second in the nation, and set a Big Ten record for steals in a season. So when Kansas State took care of the basketball Saturday, the Illini were unable to survive, falling to the Wildcats 66-48 in the WNIT quarterfinal in Manhattan, Kan. Illinois’ seniors Karisma Penn and Adrienne GodBold tried to will their team to victory in what would be their final game, but came up short. Penn led the Illini with 20 points and nine rebounds, while GodBold added 11 points and seven rebounds. Illinois’ defense, which has been key to the Illini’s success all season, struggled to create
opportunities for the offense. Kansas State had 18 assists and just 13 turnovers, while Illinois flipped those numbers with 13 assists and 18 turnovers, which Illini head coach Matt Bollant said was the difference. Kansas State was unfazed by Illinois’ Buzz and switching man-to-man defenses, and the Illini lost the turnover margin battle for just the second time since Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year GodBold returned from academic ineligibility on Dec. 28. Illinois only received scoring from its starters, and, while Penn and GodBold combined for 31 points, the rest of the team finished with 17. Junior Amber Moore finished with eight points, while sophomores Ivory Crawford and Alexis Smith added seven and two, respectively.
Kansas State’s starters were the only scorers for the Wildcats as well, but they were more productive. Brittany Chambers had her way with the Illini all afternoon long. The senior guard finished with 21 points and made 5-of11 shots from beyond the arc. Chambers was joined in double figures by junior Chantay Caron, who finished with 19 points, and sophomore Haley Texada, who finished with 16. The pressure applied by Illinois’ defense forced Kansas State to use the entirety of the shot clock, but the Wildcats were able to convert six shots in the second half as the buzzer went off. “We would play really good defense for 25 or 28 seconds and then we couldn’t quite get

Ari Franklin and Mark Schnitzer just wanted some companions to watch Illinois men’s basketball games with in Austin, Texas. Both are 2009 Illinois graduates and have run the social media and marketing for the Austin Illini Alumni Club since 2012. On March 17, known around the country as Selection Sunday, they got their wish. Franklin was in his apartment recuperating from a long weekend, while Schnitzer was out on the town celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. They’d heard from experts that the Illini could draw anywhere between a seven and a 10 seed for the NCAA tournament. Still, their chances of hosting Illinois in Austin for its first two rounds were slim. “Mark called me up right after and he was so excited,” Franklin said before the Illini’s 63-59 loss to Miami in the third round. Sure enough, the selection committee answered Franklin and Schnitzer’s calling, and the two immediately went to work planning an alumni event for those traveling to Austin for the games. “We haven’t gotten much sleep over the last week,” Schnitzer added. Until the alumni event on March 22, the Austin Illini Club was rather unorganized compared to other cities’ Illinois alumni groups. Before Franklin and Schnitzer took over the marketing effort, a board of older gentlemen held the responsibility of reaching out to Austin’s roughly 1,400 Illinois alumni. The group has been in existence since 2007 but just recently started using social media as a tool to notify alumni in Austin about events. Twitter and Facebook were crucial for reaching younger audiences and expanding membership. Before then, the older board emailed UIUC accounts registered to alumni that had been provided by the University, but many had already been deactivated or rarely checked anymore. Franklin and Schnitzer were determined to make the group better than how they’d found it. Austin is an area rich with jobs, specifically for engineering companies. That makes it an attractive destination for recent Illinois graduates. When Franklin and Schnitzer arrived in Austin, they searched for a community of Illini but found untapped potential. “We’d had a couple watch parties in the past, but the tournament changed everything for us,” Schnitzer said. “It’s been a lot of work, but we love putting it all together. It makes it all worthwhile.” Between 400 and 500 people showed up to the Austin Illini’s postgame party at The Chicago House following the Illini’s win against Colorado on March 22. Illinois Director of Athletics Mike Thomas, Illinois Sports Radio Network play-by-play and color commentators Jerry Hester and Brian Barnhart were all in attendance. Schnitzer organized a performance from the Illinois band and cheerleaders, which led the crowd of supporters in 10 minutes of fight songs. The party was so successful, the owner of the bar asked Franklin and Schnitzer for a list of demands to become the club’s home bar for watch parties. “We’d always moved around the city and that was often cause for some confusion,” Schnitzer said. “Now we can have a place with a pulldown screen that everyone can congregate for games.” The bar even hung an Illini flag from its flagpole right beside its door, prompting a girl in orange and blue gear walking on nearby 6th Street to enter the party without knowledge that anything had even been planned. Schnitzer and Franklin know their main challenge is ignorance. Their Facebook

Baseball drops final game of Oakland series, misses sweep BY JAMAL COLLIER STAFF WRITER
First, a loud — and borderline obnoxious — collective cheer from the Illinois dugout while the Illini were in the field after a routine ground ball out. Next, everyone in the dugout went from calmly seated to running to the dugout fence pumping their fists without making a sound. It seemed as if the Illinois baseball team (17-7) was trying to find ways to entertain itself Saturday against Oakland. The Illini dominated for most of the weekend, winning the first three games of the series, before dropping the series finale Sunday. Wisconsin doesn’t have a baseball program, leaving an odd number of teams in the Big Ten and giving Illinois a break in conference play. The Golden Grizzles (4-18) of the Summit League, of which they were the runnerup last season, had lost eight in a row and entered Sunday’s game with a miserable team batting average of .187. Oakland’s all-time record against the Big Ten is 9-69 and it wasn’t expected to present much of a challenge to Illinois, but the gap between the two teams seemed to close as the weekend progressed. “They always say it’s tough to beat a team four times,” left fielder Jordan Parr said. Illinois’ Kevin Johnson needed just 79 pitches and one hour and 43 minutes to fin-
ish a three-hit, complete-game shutout Friday, in which only three of the 27 outs left the infield. Illinois pitching dominated again in the second half of Saturday’s doubleheader, when John Kravetz carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning. Oakland would end up having a chance to win that game, trailing 3-2 in the ninth with two outs and the winning run on second, as a single landed into left field where Will Krug, normally Illinois’ right fielder, was waiting for it because Jordan Parr got the game off. The pitch before, third baseman Brandon Hohl was playing close to the line and signaled for Krug to move to his left a few steps. When the ball got to Krug, he fired a nearly perfect throw to home plate to nail Oakland’s Mike Carson, the would-be tying run who ran into the leg of the home plate umpire, who was trying to emphatically declaring him out. Carson laid on the ground with his hands on his head in disbelief — either at the call or the fact that Oakland had a chance to win the game at all just hours after getting blown out, 21-8. The throw itself likely wouldn’t have surprised him, however, as that play was the third time in the series an Illinois outfielder threw a runner out at home. CHONG JIANG THE DAILY ILLINI

Men’s tennis splits weekend matchups Illini handed 1st conference loss of season BY J.J. WILSON
ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR
No. 19 Illinois men’s tennis split the weekend’s conference slate, crushing Wisconsin 6-1 but slipping up 4-3 to Minnesota for its first Big Ten loss of the season. The Illini started with an impromptu, experimentalscoring match against Wisconsin-Eau Claire on Saturday, in which players were scored based on each point in each set. Illinois made quick work of the team, finishing Wisconsin-
Eau Claire 66-10 before rolling into a conference match against Wisconsin. The Illini started sloppily against the Badgers, dropping two of three courts in doubles and leaving one unfinished. Wisconsin’s Billy Bertha and Alexander Kostanov broke the eight-match win streak of Illini sophomores Tim Kopinski and Ross Guignon, who ranked No. 22 as a duo, according to the ITA. “We just didn’t close on them,” Guignon said. “They just matched us, and some things went their way.” Illinois showed new life coming into singles though, winning all courts. Guignon, accompanied by sophomore Farris Gosea, put the Illini ahead, each with 6-2, 6-1 victories on their respective courts.
Senior Stephen Hoh and freshman Jared Hiltzik both dropped their first sets but rallied to come out with points toward the Illini’s match score. Senior Bruno Abdelnour’s third-set victory finished the Badgers. “Our guys were gritty on Friday night, but played very, very well,” head coach Brad Dancer said. Minnesota changed the pace on Sunday when the Illini arrived for their third road match in two days. The Illini shot out to an early lead in doubles, raising their doubles wins to eight of 18 on the season. Dancer said the team struggles with its first serves and failure to deliver strong returns, and those weaknesses showed during the weekend. “I thought our doubles was
a little better (Sunday) than it was Friday night,” Dancer said. “We’ve still got to figure out what we can do to win some doubles points. That’s really critical for us down the stretch.” While the Illini’s inept doubles play led to their first Big Ten loss, the singles play kept the match close with four of six courts going into a third set. No. 42 Hiltzik played No. 100 Leandro Toledo to a tight match, winning 6-2 in the first set before falling 5-7 and 4-6 in the second and third, respectively. Illinois and Minnesota split the other two courts in two sets. The Illini triumphed with Hoh on court five 6-1, 6-2 over Juan Pablo Ramirez, but Kopinski fell hard on court one to No. 41 Rok Bonin 1-6, 4-6. “We were in good position
today, just Minnesota dug down a little deeper and put up a little more resistance,” Dancer said. “Things kind of swung against us, and you’ve got to give Minnesota credit. Their backs were against the wall.” As Illinois fell to 11-7, the coaching staff remains focused on its loss to Minnesota instead of its previous two victories. Dancer said they look at each match alone, refusing to cluster it all into a weekend triumph. “We’re very disappointed we lost this match today,” Dancer said. “Our guys have high expectations for themselves, high expectations for the program, and we expect to win matches we have control of.”

Women’s tennis sweeps weekend matches BY JOEY GELMAN STAFF WRITER
BRIAN YU THE DAILY ILLINI
Fighting Illini Melissa Kopinski prepares to returns the ball against Minnesota on Sunday. The Illini beat the Golden Gophers 5-2.
Needing a spark to end its fourmatch losing streak, the Illinois women’s tennis team (9-8, 2-3 Big Ten) returned home this weekend to face Big Ten rival Wisconsin (3-13, 1-4) on Friday before taking on Minnesota (8-9, 2-3) and out-of-conference Chicago State (5-14) in a doubleheader Sunday. Illinois lost the doubles point as the No. 21 tandem of sophomore Melissa Kopinski and senior Rachael White fell to the Badgers along with senior Breanne Smutko and freshman Audrey O’Conner; however, head coach Michelle Dasso encouraged a players-only meeting, which was held just before singles began and re-energized the Illini.
Kopinski defeated Hannah Berner 6-3, 6-3, and sophomore Misia Kedzierski continued her winning ways, defeating freshman Katie Hoch 6-4, 6-1. With additional wins by junior Allison Falkin, Smutko and O’Connor, the Illini fought back and won 5-2. “Misia (Kedzierski) has been the most consistent performer and (has had) an attitude and positive demeanor all year,” Dasso said. “I think she had a great day.” The Illini hosted Minnesota on Sunday in their first outdoor home match, and got off to a fast start. They secured the doubles point quickly and jumped to a 4-0 lead through three consecutive singles wins by Falkin (6-3, 6-0), White (2-6, 6-3, 6-1) and Kopinski
(6-0, 6-0). With Smutko putting the icing on the cake, the Illini defeated the Gophers 5-2. “We didn’t let them take control of the match in any way,” Kopinski said. “With Rachel’s serve, she really sets the point up for me, and then I try to set up returns, and it just comes easier outdoors.” Kopinski said she used a game plan in singles that involved a 90 percent use of forehand, which ultimately resulted led to her shutout victory. Entering the second match of the day, Illinois took on Chicago State in an alternate format, playing one doubles match simultaneous to four singles matches. White and Kopinski shined again as they quickly took care
of their opponent, followed by an Illinois sweep in singles and a 6-0 victory. Needing a .500 record to qualify for the NCAA tournament, which is hosted at Atkins Tennis Center, the Illini secured three key victories over the weekend. Illinois hosts Michigan next weekend. “Honestly, Michigan is a very good team,” Dasso said. “I think they are the best team, talentwise, in the Big Ten ... we’ve gotta go out there, come together, play with spirit (and) play to win ... and kind of walk out there with a little swagger. We’re not scared of them.”

Michigan defeats Florida despite youth BY STEPHEN HAWKINS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ARLINGTON, Texas — Trey Burke and Michigan had the perfect response for everyone who said they were too young or not tough enough to make it all the way to Atlanta. The championship trophy for the South Region is headed back to Ann Arbor, while another fabulous group of young Wolverines is going to the Final Four. Led by Burke and sharp-shooting guard Nik Stauskas, one of three freshmen starters, Michigan controlled Florida from start to finish in a 79-59 win Sunday. “It means the world — 20 years has passed and we haven’t been on that stage yet,” said Tim Hardaway Jr., the junior elder statesman in the starting lineup. The last time Michigan made it this far was the Fab Five era of the early 1990s, what until now had been considered the program’s glory years. Might be time to start rethinking that. Once they got ahead Sunday, the Wolverines (30-7) maintained a double-digit lead against the experienced Gators (29-8), who won the regular-season title in the Southeastern Conference, but lost in a regional final for the third straight year. “We’ve almost become numb to it now. Been here before,” Gators junior center Patric Young said. “I just really wish we were out there cutting the nets down.” Stauskas scored 22 points while making all six of his 3-pointers. Burke, the South Region’s most
outstanding player, scored 15 points, and 6-foot-10 freshman Mitch McGary had 11 points and nine rebounds. When the game ended, Burke and several of his teammates went to the opposite side of the court toward Michigan fans behind press row with fingers raised. Fans were chanting, “It’s great to be a Michigan Wolverine!” And great to be young. “Seeing it all come together, I don’t know what to say,” sixth-year Wolverines coach John Beilein said. “I’m a little bit speechless.” Michigan hadn’t reached the Final Four since consecutive finals appearances in 1992 and 1993, the freshman and sophomore seasons of the Fab Five — Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Ray Jackson and Jimmy King. Webber was gone before that team’s 1994 regional final loss to Arkansas played in the nowdemolished Reunion Arena in Dallas, and Howard followed him to the NBA after that. With four wins in this NCAA tourney, the Wolverines already have more tournament victories than their total from the end of the Fab Five era to this season. They had one win in 1998, and then didn’t even make the field again until 2009. Despite being the only team to make regional finals each of the last three seasons, the Gators haven’t been to the Final Four since winning consecutive national titles in 2006 and 2007 for coach Billy Donovan.

Michigan celebrates after a regional final game against Florida in the NCAA college basketball tournament on Sunday in Arlington, Texas. Michigan won 79-59 to advance to the Final Four. Kenny Boynton and Erik Murphy, the four-year seniors who came in not long after those titles, will leave without one of their own. They were part of the only Gators class to win consecutive outright SEC regular-season championships, but came up short in the biggest games.
Florida is the first team to make it to three consecutive regional finals without winning at least one of them, according to STATS LLC. Wyoming lost in the round of eight from 1947-49, but that stretch ended two years before the NCAA tournament expanded to more than eight teams. “I feel more upset for Boynton,

(Mike) Rosario and Murphy, who don’t get a chance and have come so close,” Donovan said. “This one, we didn’t play well enough or deserve to win.” Boynton and Will Yeguete had 13 points apiece for the Gators. Murphy was clearly devastated, staring at the floor with slumped shoulder in the locker
room after the game. “Just missed shots,” Murphy said, barely loud enough to be heard, and answering in short spurts. “Our defense was bad.” Even with an 11-2 run late in the first half punctuated by Boynton’s 3-pointer, the Gators were still down by 15 with a minute to go in the first half.

Men’s track takes 1st at the Bill Cornell Spring Classic Turk: Relay teams bounce back, remain consistent
improve on its fifth-place finish (3:17.70) in last week’s season opener. “We had already won the meet by the time the 4x4 rolled around, and there was no reason to run the event, but we wanted the meet experience anyway,” Turk said. “The 4x4 still isn’t at full strength, but they put forward to good effort, nonetheless.” Zahn stood out as an individual performer, taking home titles in the 100 and 200-meter dashes to finish with four titles overall. The sophomore improved on his effort last week by two hundredths of a second, winning the event with
a time of 10.63. In the 200, Zahn finished with a time of 21.26. “Improving on my start has my biggest focus recently, and it was definitely much better, which allowed me the success I had,” he said. Zahn earned praise from his coach for competing in four events. “DJ is really an unsung hero for us,” Turk said. “He does so much for us, that’s why he’s such a vital component for our success.”

a stop,” Bollant said. Illinois jumped out to an 8-7 lead, but Kansas State answered with a 15-0 run and never looked back. The Wildcats led 34-24 at the half and never let their lead dwindle to less than nine points in the second half. Illinois’ final record of 19-14 is the program’s best since finishing 19-12 in 2006-07, the final year of Theresa Grentz’s tenure at Illinois. The WNIT quarterfinal finish is the program’s best since finishing in the same position in 2010. “Good to see (the program) heading in the right direction,” Bollant said. “We set some records for most steals in the Big Ten and most turnovers forced. It takes a year to learn the defensive system, so for us to have those numbers in our first year says something about these kids. They gave us great effort and great hearts. We weren’t very deep and we rode those starters as best we could, and they did a good job. “I’m really proud of this team. It was a great first year, and I’m really proud of Adrienne and KP for what they gave to us.” Penn played 40 minutes for the Illini before being taken out with 18 seconds left. She ended her career as Illinois’ all-time leader in blocked shots, second in rebounds and double-doubles, and fourth in scoring. Penn will likely be selected in the upcoming WNBA Draft. GodBold was also key to Illinois’ success in Bollant’s first year. The senior made strides improving from Big Ten Sixth Player of the Year to the conference’s top defender, and she was second on the team with 15.9 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. GodBold will likely be signed as an undrafted free agent in the WNBA or play overseas after graduation.
The first two came in Game One of the doubleheader, which was really never in doubt for Illinois. The 21 runs are the most it has scored since Dan Hartleb became head coach and the most for the program since 2005. With the wind blowing out at Illinois Field, the Illini hit five home runs during the weekend. They came in with six homers on the season. The first of the weekend came from Justin Parr on Friday, his first of the year. He sprinted around the bases after the two-run shot, nearly chasing down Michael Hurwitz on the base paths. Justin Parr said Hurwitz had continually reminded him that Hurwitz had a home run and he did not. In addition to the home run, the center fielder hit .500 during the weekend, adding two doubles, six RBIs and two stolen bases. He extended his hitting streak
to a career-best 12 games, and he has a hit in 22 of Illinois’ 24 games this season. Thomas Lindauer continued his surprising power surge Saturday, hitting two home runs to bring his total to four, which is tied for the team lead with Jordan Parr, who also homered. Brandon Hohl added a grand slam for his first home run of the season. After hitting all those home runs and with the wind blowing out again Sunday, Illinois seemed to be trying to replicate some of that power. It resulted in a lot of pop-ups and fly-ball outs. Meanwhile, Oakland’s offense produced nine hits and six runs, three of which came off a Todd Dunham homer in the fourth. That proved to be the difference as the Golden Grizzles won 6-3. “Tip our hats to them from the standpoint that they had a rough couple days and they found a way to rebound,” Hartleb said.

It’s still well short of the total amount of Illinois graduates within a 30-mile radius of Austin, but it’s a start. The Austin Illini also hosted a pregame event before Illinois’ loss to Miami on March 24. While several Illini fans vacated the Austin area after their run in the tournament ended, Schnitzer and Franklin are enthused about the direction of their club. They should have several new friends to grab a beer with and watch Illinois basketball for years to come, but they’ll still be looking for more to come and join them.

squads. “I was pleased with what we did in the relays this weekend,” head coach Mike Turk said. “The 4x1 stepped up after a tough meet last week, and the 4x4 again had a solid meet and remained consistent.” The 4x100 team — comprised of sophomores DJ Zahn, Brandon Stryganek along with juniors Julian Smith and Vanier Joseph — rebounded following a false start disqualification last week at the Big Ten/SEC Challenge. Turk said the relay team took a more conservative approach to the event in order to avoid repeating
last week’s error. “We were overly aggressive last week in the 4x1, and it cost us,” he said. “We took a more cautious approach, and it allowed us to take a big step forward in the span of just one week. The 4x1 is in a similar position to what it was last year, so we’re confident that we will still progress further.” He also spoke about the relay team’s need to improve further, specifically by having crisper and cleaner exchanges. With Stanley Azie and Olympian Andrew Riley graduated, the turnover from 2011’s school-
record setting squad is complete. Zahn and Stryganek, the other two components of the 4x100 team that challenged the school record last year, have a long way to go to reach that level with a new group. “We have big shoes to fill with having to replace Andrew Riley in the 4x1,” Zahn said. “It was nice to get the win, but we have a ton of work to do in the event to get to where we want to be.” The 1600-meter relay crew, consisting of Juan Paul Green, Zahn, Ryan Lynn and Zebo Zebe, crossed the finish line with a time of 3 minutes, 16.78 seconds, to

Illinois track posts 2nd best time in school history BY LANRE ALABI STAFF WRITER
The Illini relay team produced the second-best performance the school had ever seen. Amanda Duvendack, Samantha Murphy, Ahlivia Spencer and Marissa Golliday put together the second-best 3200-meters relay Illinois has ever had, eclipsing a mark Duvendack, Murphy and two others set last year by nearly a full second. Their time of 8 minutes, 46.08 seconds was also good enough for second in the 3200-meter medley field, which included No. 4 Louisiana State and indoor season national champions, No. 2 Oregon. The Illini also produced an array of good performances to round out a successful meet in Austin, Texas. “I was really pleased,” head
coach Tonja Buford-Bailey said. “I felt like everyone performed very well, which is hard now. We are just trying to perform our best and coming out of each meet with success.” Buford-Bailey highlighted performances in the 3200-, 1600- and 400-meter relays, and said it was encouraging to have relative success in those events, considering the team’s lack of outdoor practices this season. She was also elated with freshman sprinter Morolake Akinosun’s weekend in the 100-meter dash. Akinosun achieved the school’s second-best 100 time en route to a sixth-place finish in the finals. Murphy, in addition to the 3200 relay, competed in the 1500 meters, an event in which she achieved the eighth best time in school history. She
admitted being shocked at her performance, with this being her first meet competing in that event. “It was very different,” Murphy said. “I just had a time that coach wanted me to go for the first 800, and I tried to finish from there. I was very surprised by my performance.” Sophomore sprinter Ashley Spencer competed in the 400 and 1600 relays, as well as the 400-meters hurdles. The relay teams placed fifth in both events and finished half a second slower than the program record. Ashley Spencer also qualified second overall for the 400-meter hurdles final but didn’t compete for strategic reasons. “Coach didn’t want to put a lot on my plate,” Ashley Spencer said. “She really wanted to
have a good 4x100 and 4x400 opener. She just wanted a good time in the prelims for the hurdles. To open up so close to the school record was very exciting. Unlike a lot of other teams, we are still unable to practice outside. Opening up very close to the school record, it makes us believe that when we do finally get to practice outside regularly, we’ll run even faster.” Junior Stephanie Richartz competed in the pole vault finals and finished fifth in the standings by clearing 4.31 meters. “I was really pleased with my jump,” Richartz said. “I was right around where I finished last season, so it gives me a lot of hope to build on looking forward. I want to get to around a 4.40-4.45, but my ideal jump would be a 4.5.”
Buford-Bailey is optimistic about the season ahead, including the Sun Angel Classic next week. “I feel good about our progress.” Buford-Bailey said. “I look at the Big Ten and we are leading most of the events. Of course we will have to spend another week indoors, but next weekend is another opportunity to go outdoors and be on the track and get used to the wind for our field event athletes, which is important at this point. We ran against some really competitive teams, so we did the best, considering the climate and the impressive field. I would say hands down, we had the best result.”

After Ware’s injury, Louisville rallies to beat Duke BY NANCY ARMOUR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
INDIANAPOLIS — Crying and shaken by the sight of Kevin Ware writhing on the court, his right leg splintered, Rick Pitino and his Louisville players had no idea how they were going to pull it together with a half still left to play and a Final Four berth on the line. Ware showed them the way. “I don’t think we could have gathered ourselves — I know I couldn’t have — if Kevin didn’t say over and over again, ‘Just go win the game,’” Pitino said. “I don’t think we could have gone in the locker room with a loss after seeing that. We had to gather ourselves. We couldn’t lose this game for him. “We just couldn’t.”
With Russ Smith, Peyton Siva and Gorgui Dieng leading the way, the Cardinals finally shook off their grief early in the second half, erupting for a 13-2 run that Duke was powerless to answer. The 85-63 victory clinched a second straight trip to the Final Four for the top-seeded Cardinals, who are determined to win it all for Ware, a New York City native who moved to the Atlanta area for high school. The Cardinals (33-5) will play Wichita State in the national semifinals next Saturday. The ninth-seeded Shockers (30-8) added to their streak of upsets with a 70-66 victory over Ohio State on Saturday night. As the final seconds ticked down, Ware’s best friend on the
team, Chane Behanan, put on the guard’s No. 5 jersey and stood at the end of the bench, screaming. Cardinals fans chanted “Kevin Ware! Kevin Ware!” “We talked about it every timeout, ‘Get Kevin home,’” Pitino said. Smith finished with 23 points and earned Most Outstanding Player honors for the Midwest Region. Siva added 16 while Dieng had 14 points and 11 rebounds. Mason Plumlee had 17 points and 12 rebounds for Duke. But the Blue Devils (30-6) couldn’t overcome a poor start by Seth Curry, who scored all 12 of his points in the second half, or their foul trouble. “I thought we had a chance there, and then, boom,” coach
Mike Krzyzewski said. “That’s what they do to teams. They can boom you.” This was the first time Pitino and Krzyzewski had met in the regional finals since that 1992 classic that ended with Christian Laettner’s improbable buzzer-beater, a game now considered one of the best in NCAA tournament history. This game will be remembered, too, but for a very different — and much more somber — reason. With 6:33 left in the first half, Ware, who has played a key role in Louisville’s 14-game winning streak, jumped to try and block Tyler Thornton’s 3-point shot. When he landed, Ware’s right leg snapped midway between his ankle and knee, the bone
skewing almost at a right angle. Ware dropped to the floor right in front of the Louisville bench and, almost in unison, his teammates turned away in horror. Thornton grimaced, putting his hand to his mouth as he turned around. “I heard it and then I seen what happened, (the bone) come out,” Smith said. “I immediately just, like, fell. I almost didn’t feel nothing.” Pitino went to help Ware up and then saw the leg, which broke in two places. “I literally almost threw up,” Pitino said, his voice catching. “Then I just wanted to get a towel to get it over that. But all the players came over and saw it.”Pitino had tears in his eyes as he tried to console his players.
Illini softball falls to No. 24 Cornhuskers, pitchers walk 29 batters Pitch control issues, not trusting defense lead to loss of series BY NICHOLAS FORTIN STAFF WRITER
The Illinois softball team (11-17, 1-5 Big Ten) had a hard time keeping the ball in the strike zone this weekend against No. 24 Nebraska (25-7, 5-1), with 29 walks in three games. “Our pitchers are a lot better than we’ve shown,” senior pitcher Jackie Guy said. “Our pitchers are capable of shutting teams down and throwing one or two walks a game, and that’s what we need to do. It’s just a matter of trusting our defense and trusting our pitches.” Illinois opened its weekend Saturday with a pair of games in which the Illini allowed 16 walks. Senior pitcher Pepper Gay started the first game for Illinois and threw all seven innings, giving up 10 walks and hitting five batters, but allowing just five hits in the game. “After the game (head coach Terri Sullivan) told me that I had 15 free passes, which is a ridiculous amount,” Gay said. “I know I can throw better, I just have to attack and trust my defense because they play really well behind me.”
Despite the walks, Gay had a lead and a hit batsman knotted the game at going into the seventh inning of 4-4. Tatum Edwards then walked Allie Saturday’s opener.

Jessica Davis bats during a game against Nebraska on Sunday at Eichelberger Field. but we had those early walks. A good team, especially in Game Three in a series, will take advantage of the walks, and they did. And we weren’t as sharp defensively either.” Sullivan said the Huskers “got it done,” making the Illini pay early and coming up with clutch hits and good defensive plays at key times. The Illini need to work on pitch-bypitch concentration and consistency,
Sullivan said.“We just have to stay mentally tough,” Sullivan said. “We have to get back out there and make ourselves better. We have to be really strong all the way through the game. I know this team is capable of (getting a win streak going), so now we just have to get out there and perform.”
