Evanston’s Parking Committee will wait on a decision to raise monthly fees for parking garages until it can review a Finance Department report detailing debts on the city’s three parking garages. The upcoming finance report will give a timeline for debt payments. Evanston owes $38 million on the Sherman Plaza parking garage , which opened in 2006, and $1.5 million on the Church Street structure. The current $85 monthly rate for Evanston’s three garages is divided into two funds. “If you take T he pa rk ing f und, away the which pays maintetransfer, the nance costs, contracts and debts for the city’s parking fund parking facilities, rewould be in ceives 71 percent of a deficit.” the revenue generated by monthly parking fees . The rest of the Steven Drazner cost comes f rom a Assistant Finance parking ta x, which Director generates $1.8 million for the city’s general fund each year. However, parking fees alone are inadequate. Local Tax Increment Financing funds, which incorporate gains in property tax revenue, are expected to contribute $3.4 million to the parking fund , which Assistant Finance Director Steve Drazner said is supposed to be self-sustaining. “It’s really just a cash flow issue,” he said. “If you take away the transfer, the parking fund would be in a deficit. It should just be like a business and should be stand-alone.” The Parking Committee will discuss incorporating a parking rate increase plan approved by the City Council in 2005 that gave the green light to raising the monthly parking fee to $90 this March.

Panhel sororities unite for speaker By PAM CARMASINE THE DAILY NORTHWESTERN

In place of individual chapter meetings usually held Monday nights, each of Northwestern’s 12 Panhellenic sororities convened for the first Grand Chapter meeting ever to integrate education and social life on campus. For its first “high-profile speaker” event, NU Panhellenic Association executive board brought Andrea Cooper, a Flor-

ida State University alumna in Delta Delta Delta who speaks to college students across the country. She spoke about facing depression after traumas like rape at Ryan Family Auditorium , which was almost filled to capacity. But for the first half hour, she entertained the Greek community with stories of her job — speaking about depression for a living is usually a conversation killer with the “over-40” crowd, she said to laughter. There was a pep rally-like roll

Math model presented by expert π Dr. Eric Forgoston talked to NU students and faculty about using math to predict future epidemic outbreaks By LARK TURNER THE DAILY NORTHWESTERN

About 60 students and faculty learned how to apply their studies and research firsthand at a presentation Monday called “Improving Prediction of Random Epidemic Outbreaks” at the Technological Institute. Dr. Eric Forgoston discussed how applied mathematics can track the spread of an epidemic. He began his presentation with the history of famous epidemiologists, from Hippo-

crates to John Snow — the proclaimed “father” of epidemiology — who observed and tracked a cholera outbreak in London during the 1850s , and whose methods are still used in part today. Forgoston, a researcher from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, presented a mathematical model to help predict epidemics over time. He developed the model along with Dr. Lora Billings and Dr. Ira B. Schwartz. The method is a simplified process to determine how epidemics will affect a

Forgoston’s presentation was part of a series of colloquia and talks geared toward the Engineering Sciences and Applied Math program of the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. He began by describing the history of epidemiology, a branch of medicine studying the incidence and control of disease. He said limitations in another statistical method prompted him, Billings and Schwartz to develop a new one. This equation can predict the spread of epidemics in larger populations over a longer period of time. See EPIDEMIC , page 3

POLICEBLOTTER

Armed robber punches Student spots two man, takes money suspicious teenagers An unknown man struck and robbed a homeless man Friday night, police said. The robber approached the victim, a homeless man in his 50s, on the 600 block of Davis Street at 10:48 p.m. Friday, said Evanston Police Cmdr. James Pickett. The robber told the man, “I’m gonna (expletive) you up,” before punching him in the face, reaching into his pocket and taking $40 to $50, police said. The robber was also in possession of a long steak knife, Pickett said. He fled down a west alley on Chicago Avenue. The victim, who was bleeding from his nose and mouth, was taken to Evanston Hospital, 2650 Ridge Ave., Pickett said. The victim told police he met the robber several days before the robbery, but police do not know what their relationship was, Pickett said. Police are still investigating.

A Northwestern student saw two suspicious people in the Theatre and Interpretation Center on Friday night, police said. The student saw the two teenagers wandering backstage in the Center, 1949 Campus Drive, around 8:18 p.m., she later told police. When she asked the teenagers if they needed help, they ran out of the building and fled north, University Police Deputy Chief Dan McAleer said. The student told police the teenagers were both males who were 15 or 16 years old. One was wearing gray jeans and glasses, while the other was wearing dark clothing, an orange hat and a purple backpack. Police searched the area but did not find anyone.

outside on the 800 block of Gaffield Place on Saturday night, police said. Police were patrolling the block when they saw a man urinating on the front lawn of 819 Gaffield Place at 11:37 p.m., McAleer said. Police issued the student a ticket for public urination.

Burglar takes four computers, checkbook An unknown person broke into and burglarized an apartment on Sherman Avenue early Sunday morning, police said. Two residents of 2016 ½ Sherman Ave. left the apartment around midnight, Pickett said. When another resident returned to the apartment around 2:45 a.m., the front and rear doors of the apartment were open and the windows were smashed. The burglar took four laptop computers and a checkbook, Pickett said. Police are still investigating.

Funding Evanston’s police and fire pensions was a top concern for the two city officials, who had also planned to lobby for a bill that would extend the time frame for cities to fulfill their pension obligation. Under state law, cities like Evanston must fully fund their pensions by 2033. The bill, however, was not on the legislative docket at the time of Tisdahl and Bobkiewicz’s visit. Bobkiewicz wrote that Evanston must work

closer with state officials to secure needed resources for the city. “Evanston is absolutely misunderstood in Springfield,” he wrote. “We have work to do to better identify ourselves as the diverse community we are not only to the General Assembly, but to the appointed leadership of Illinois state government.” A week prior to the Springfield trip, Tisdahl and Bobkiewicz spent two days in Washington, D.C., to meet with Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.). The two also met with representatives from the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Housing and Urban Development to discuss the city’s water needs and express their interest in converting foreclosed homes into affordable housing.

Epidemic Parking Committee to consider fee hike talk details new methods From parking, page 1

From Epidemic, page 1 “We want recurrent outbreaks, outbreaks that may look chaotic,� Forgoston said. “So we’re going to have to complicate the method.� Forgoston said earlier formulas used to predict outbreaks did not work in modeling epidemics over time. The researchers developed a new model which takes into account birth and death rates as well as the usual variables of susceptible, exposed, infected and recovered members of the population. The researchers also discovered the new method could help find other variables. “Given measurable numbers of infected individuals in the population,� Forgoston said, “we can predict the measured number of exposed individuals.� The audience, composed mainly of McCormick graduate students, asked Forgoston questions based on the mathematical equations he presented. Hannah Choi , a first-year graduate student in McCormick, said the formula showed math’s impact on current issues. “It’s where mathematics can be actually applied to the real world — it’s very interesting in that sense,� she said. Third-year McCormick graduate student Lane McConnell said Forgoston’s presentation and the researchers’ findings made working in statistical epidemiology easier. “It’s basically just an accurate simplification of a more complicated model,� he said. Forgoston concluded his presentation by explaining the merits of the new method and its possible implications. “There’s lots of work that can be done,� he said. “Once you have this ability to accurately predict disease outbreak, you can study different types of control techniques.� lark@u.northwestern.edu

Director Jonathan Perman said the committee should halt the plan to raise fees and take the economic climate into consideration. Instead of a fixed fee increase, Perman suggested placing an adjustable rate pay system in the express lane to maximize revenue. “There’s an assumption by some people that to generate more revenue you have to raise rates,� he said. “I don’t buy that. When demand is low you should lower prices and when demand is high you should raise prices, but we don’t do that in Evanston.� Perman said the privately owned InterPark garage at 1603 Orrington Ave. competes

with city-operated garages by varying daily rates. A $5 per-month fee increase may seem like a risky lane change to Perman, but Helen Fisz, an employee of the Evanston Public Library who parks her car at the nearby Church Street parking garage, said she disagreed about the dangers of a fee hike. “It’s not that bad,� she said of the proposed $90 monthly parking rate, adding that the library compensates her parking payments. “Parking is worse in Chicago; downtown it’s crazy.� Although the four-year-old plan to increase monthly fees by $5 per month is only a recommendation, Parking Enforcement

Supervisor Rick Voss said previous reports are part of the parking budget process. “If we just sat there and did it, it’s not fair to everyone,� he said. “Even the committee has to consider economic climate and so forth, we just don’t know the direction right now.� The Parking Committee will review the Finance Department’s debt report at its next meeting on Nov. 18. Voss said a discussion on changes to the monthly rate will follow, and he hopes to have a plan for the city budget at the end of the fiscal year. “It’s an ongoing discussion and process,� he said. danhill@u.northwestern.edu

Subsequently she was raped, but she did not go to police counselors, or her parents, afterwards. Cooper said the reason she tells her daughter’s story is to help prevent depression-based suicides many college students face. “She had a plan and she was going to get relief,� Cooper said. “Her depression got so bad that soon her whole (sorority) house knew.� Victims of this kind of sexual assault can experience emotional and physical trauma, and even post-traumatic stress, according to the National Center for Victims of Crime. One in four college girls has been the victim of rape or attempted rape, and a woman is four times more likely to be raped by someone she knows than by a stranger.

Seeking safety around campus

Green projects keep NU at top

H

ow green are we? Even as NU and student groups continue to develop academic programming and student group involvement in environmental initiatives, NU is already taking us in the right direction for sustainability. NU is ranked by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency among the top 10 universities purchasing green power, according to the NU Facilities Management Web site. Using buildings such as the Wieboldt School of Continuing Studies in Chicago and the Ford Motor Company Engineering Design Center in Evanston as models for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification, NU has pledged to have all new buildings meet LEED standards — which would include Silverman Hall, the research lab under construction on North Campus. Among major renovations on campus, including Harris Hall and Searle Hall, designers may have considered improving energy efficiency and adding central temperature control, according to the Web site. With more energy use policies in place to reduce NU’s environmental impact, the University can use its projects to help raise awareness of being green throughout the community. While environmental science majors and members of eco-friendly groups may be on the cutting edge of green advances, there needs to be a more general, university-wide push for sustainability. Evanston is making strides in becoming more environmentally friendly, too — the City Council recently passed an ordinance to require LEED ratings for all new buildings — putting NU in an ideal position for furthering its green initiatives.

t’s time to take back our campus. Security alerts about nearby crimes, including incidents of a business and students being robbed, have us walking nervously through Evanston. But on a campus that extends far beyond the mile-long stretch of university buildings on Sheridan Road, students, faculty and staff should feel safer traveling around Northwestern. The University has already stepped up safety initiatives following the crime reports. There is a noticeable increase in NU and Evanston Police presence in heavily populated student areas off campus, and the administration has extended SafeRide’s operating hours and expanded its fleet. The NU community should also take advantage of the shuttle system, with its updated Global Positioning System tracking, in order to avoid solitary strolls. But there are times when you can’t catch a SafeRide, or you don’t see a police cruiser and feel that flush of relief. An easy step to making neighboring blocks of Evanston safer for both students and city residents would be additional lighting on dark streets. With buildings scattered throughout our corner of Evanston, NU’s bounds and obligations to keep us safe stretch to cover most of the off-campus areas frequented by students and staff members, including apartments and restaurants located nearby. Improving lighted areas is an opportunity for Evanston and NU to team up again and show initiative through our improving city-campus partnership. Brighter streets will deter lurkers and heighten our awareness on the brisk walk home.

letterS to the editor

Not just one path for environmental science In response to Jessica Allen’s Nov. 2 story on environmental education questions, I’d like to offer some thoughts from my multiple perspectives as founder of Northwestern’s environmental sciences major, earth science undergraduate adviser for several years, a current freshman adviser and a lifetime environmentalist. When my colleagues and I organized the environmental sciences major in 1992, we envisioned an interdisciplinary program based on the fact that earth sciences are intrinsically both interdisciplinary and environmental. Because our major already included a broad background in mathematics, physics and chemistry, we developed a major that would also include life science and social science. Our thinking is summarized in an article I wrote offering suggestions to other universities considering similar options, available through the NU Web site. However, within a few years it became clear the environment is too broad a topic for even a program like this. One can approach it from the view of science, engineering, policy, media, art or humanities. All of these are valid and necessary — but very different. For example, in earth science we know a lot about how oceans work and change over time, but have no expertise in solar cells, sewerage treatment or cap-and-trade legislation. A similar situation arises in teaching. At the beginning level, departmental courses can cover a range of topics. For example, my freshman seminar about Lake Michigan and the Chicago River covers science, engineering, policy and history topics, as well as a good introduction to kayaking. However, advanced courses need to specialize to give enough depth that students come out really understanding things. Thus in earth science courses we teach how the planet works, but other aspects are better covered by other departments. My advice to undergraduates interested in the environment is to accept that there isn’t one path, which is good. Decide where your interests lie, what you’re good at and what you like doing. That’s

NU: Our campus, our community, our home Just this weekend, white Northwestern students painted their bodies black to celebrate Halloween. Whether or not the students’ actions were intentionally offensive, the incident demonstrated an ignorance and insensitivity to the painful and ugly history of blackface that has no place in the Northwestern community. Northwestern is our campus, our community and our home. As students, we can determine the type of campus we wish to have and the community we wish to live in. We are privileged to attend an exclusive institution, and with that privilege comes a certain level of responsibility to ourselves, to our peers and to our community. We are all aware that hunger, homelessness, sexism and racism exist, but we treat them as distant concepts to discuss in class or to feel good about donating to through a charity or nonprofit. These are not distant problems, but are all problems that exist on our campus. If we hope to make the world a better place, we must start in our own community first. As Northwestern students, we are often told that we are the future, the leaders of tomorrow. The talent, creativity and energy on our campus is limitless. If we want to improve the world, though, we must set a high standard for equality and social justice on our own campus. We cannot wait for tomorrow.

n a philosophy class a while back, I remember a TA trying to explain to a rather confused Kellogg student the notion of a priori truths: those things we know are true without any experience of them. “Just try to think of something you know is undeniably true,” the TA explained patiently. “Something like, ‘It is an a priori truth that two plus two equals four.’ ” Deep in thought, the Kellogg student stared at his desk and then suddenly looked up, his eyes alight: “I get it! Of course! It is an a priori truth that finance has all the best jobs!” The TA sighed and tried explaining it to him again, but the Kellogg student might as well have been right: For the past two decades or so, it has been an undeniable fact that the jobs in finance — and more importantly, the paychecks — have drawn in the best and brightest graduates. OK, maybe that wasn’t exactly how the class discussion went. But is the Kellogg student’s belief still true? This is especially pressing for seniors considering a 100 hour-per-week finance job in hopes of a hefty paycheck. A 2008 study suggests it’s no longer the case. The paper’s two authors from New York University and the University of Virginia argue finance has become increasingly lucrative since the 1980s, but the skyrocketing paychecks of the financial world will likely begin to sink back to earth. These predictions aren’t just based in the events of the last year or two, either. The paper’s authors predict that over the long-term, financial paychecks are likely going to slope like the Aspen hills so preferred by the financiers of yore. As Paul Krugman claimed in a different article, it used to be academia and government work that were the hot tickets for top graduates. That’s right: The two ugly sisters of today’s corporate-loving hiring world were once where the best of the best went. It was only after Wall Street firms were able to offer stratospheric paychecks that graduates began to value jobs in finance over academia. Overall, the fact is that the Kellogg student was totally wrong. It’s not at all an a priori truth that finance jobs will be as attractive as they presently are. Quite the opposite actually: Without its high paychecks, the long hours and constant travel of finance make it sound like a pretty unappealing field to call one’s own. This should serve as a warning to those who treat finance as professional nirvana. There’s not all that much to substantiate it: Jobs on Wall Street only became as attractive as they are now after six- and seven-figure paychecks were attached to them. As hard as it may be to imagine, there might be a day again in which finance, without its confidence-boosting paychecks, is treated the same way as academia and government are now. Undergraduates pursuing finance with dreams of gilded luxury might want to pay attention as they look down the road. Weinberg senior Mac LeBuhn can be reached at mac.lebuhn@gmail.com.

Bigger lineup helps Cats win big in exhibition By Robbie Levin the daily northwestern

For coach Joe McKeown and the Wildcats, bigger is better in 2009-2010. On Saturday Northwestern boasted a starting lineup with all but one player taller than 5’10”. On the other hand, Robert Morris started only one player taller than 5’9”. The Wildcats used their new size to dominate the Eagles 119-66 in their only exhibition game of the season. NU used the Women's game, which did not count Basketball towards its record, as a measurement of its progress. “We definitely have some things to work on,” sophomore Brittany Orban said. “But it’s our first game and we’re excited about where things are headed.”

McKeown’s first recruiting class focused on size: The second-year coach brought in two recruits taller than six feet. The Cats also welcome back 6’2” junior Kaitlin McInerney, who missed most of last season with an ACL injury. Add that to 6’5” All-Big Ten center Amy Jaeschke, and NU has one of its biggest teams in recent memory. “It takes a lot of pressure off Amy now,” McKeown said. “She doesn’t have to feel like she’s playing in a league where everybody else is 6’5” and everybody on our team is 5’7” or 5’8”.” Jaeschke and the Cats dominated the battle for the boards, grabbing 49 rebounds while limiting the Eagles to 38. However, rebounding wasn’t the only advantage to a bigger lineup. “Even though we had a size advantage, it was important to get our post players up and down the floor defending smaller players,” McKeown said. “I thought Amy and Danielle

(Diamont) did a good job of establishing themselves in the paint.” NU scored 56 points down low while holding Robert Morris to just 12 points. But the Cats were not controlling the paint for the entire game. NU committed six turnovers in the first eight minutes and the Eagles jumped out to an 18-14 lead with 11:46 left in the half. Then NU went on a 15-0 run and never looked back. Orban and Jaeschke led the Cats with 25 and 23 points, respectively. Freshman Diamont, sophomore Allison Mocchi, junior Meshia Reed and McInerney all finished in double digits as well. The balanced and bountiful scoring bodes well for NU, as the squad struggled to put points on the board last season. “Last year scoring was our biggest problem,” McKeown said. “We defended pretty well and competed really hard, but we didn’t score. That’s

a good sign for us.” Orban also pointed to the team’s increased conditioning as a factor in its opening day blowout. “We’re in better shape coming into the season,” she said. “We don’t need two or three games to feel like we’re in shape. Starting out we feel like we’re able to run and just continue going.” McKeown credited much of the team’s improved conditioning to its first full year under the new coaching staff. “We just got here late last year so we never had a postseason with this team as a coaching staff until this past April and May,” he said. “Our coaches did a great job individually making players better, demanding more, expecting more. Hopefully that’ll carry over to the Big Ten.” robertlevin2012@u.northwestern.edu

No sign of sophomore slump for Orban By Sarah Kuta the daily northwestern

Ray Whitehouse/the daily northwestern

Sophomore Brittany Orban scored a team-high 25 points in a win against Robert Morris. She was the Wildcats’ Newcomer of the Year last year.

Coach Joe McKeown is worried about another team recruiting one of his best forwards. But it’s not another basketball team stealing sophomore Brittany Orban that he’s concerned about — it’s coach Pat Fitzgerald. Orban led Northwestern with 25 points and seven rebounds on Sunday in a 119-66 victory over Robert Morris University. Though it was an exhibition game, McKeown said Orban’s performance was an indicaSidebar tor of how she will play the rest of the season. “Coach Fitz would love her,” he said. “She makes plays. They’re not pretty. It’s just based on hustle and aggression and determination.” Even though the exhibition game doesn’t count toward the team’s statistics, Orban was visibly pleased with her team’s performance, grinning outside the locker room after the game. “119 points, no matter what team you’re playing against, that’s still a lot of points,” she said. Orban demonstrated her determination through her numbers last year. She led the team

in 3-point percentage (.400) and free throws made (87) as a true freshman. Orban finished fourth in the Big Ten and second on the team in free throw percentage (.821) and received the Wildcats’ Newcomer of the Year Award. Last season against Ohio State, Orban notched a career-high 25 points and nailed all 13 of her free throws. Now as a sophomore, McKeown said he hopes the freshmen will observe and adopt Orban’s work ethic. “She works so hard in the weight room, and she always tries to finish first in every sprint,” he said. At an even six feet, Orban is not one of the tallest players in the Big Ten. McKeown’s recruiting class includes 6’5” Danielle Diamant and 6’2” Kendall Hackney. Regardless of her size, Orban’s performance Sunday showed her efforts in practice are translating onto the court. “She’s always going to be undersized,” McKeown said. “When she’s on the floor, she expects to win. She makes people better because she plays so hard.” The Cats’ newly-recruited height forced the Colonials outside, and they scored only eight points in the paint during the first half.

NU on the other hand, more than tripled Robert Morris’ points inside. “It was a great challenge for us,” Orban said. “Even though they weren’t very tall, it’s still enforcing to get it inside. We’re going to want to get it inside every game.” In the first half, NU’s size and physicality allowed it to rebound more and start more fast breaks than it typically did last year. With six minutes left in the half, Orban made a fast break layup and then followed up with another jump shot after a steal by sophomore Allison Mocchi. But she wasn’t finished. Orban then knocked down a 3-pointer on the following possession to increase NU’s lead to 14. In one minute of play, Orban demonstrated her versatility by adding seven points in three different ways. Her mentality: Reminding herself that she isn’t a freshman anymore. “Going into it, the first thing I thought was ‘This isn’t my first game,’” she said. “You get nerves no matter what game you play. I had to sit back and think ‘I’ve done this for 30 some games.’ It’s just another game.” sarahkuta2012@u.northwestern.edu

Focusing on the finish for Big Ten Championships From Field Hockey, page 8 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hustling out there, but I guess timing is just a little off,â&#x20AC;? Dobbs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of it is luck and timing. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get that down. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take much. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to get two percent better on it.â&#x20AC;? NU failed to score on any of its seven penalty corners. The team was also unable to finish any

of its 12 attempts in its loss to Iowa last weekend. On two of the corners, NUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stick-stopper had the ball ricochet up off her stick and into her chest, a penalty that gave possession back to Ohio State. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were miscues today,â&#x20AC;? Fuchs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had two that were bobbled and one that somebody missed a sign. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the difference at this level. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s those little details. Every-

bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to know what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing on the attack corners to be successful.â&#x20AC;? The Cats pulled their goalie with eight minutes left in the game, but could not get the tying goal. NU opens the Big Ten Championships against Indiana on Thursday. The Hoosiers beat the Cats 2-1 to start NUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three-game skid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always so close,â&#x20AC;? said Armstrong,

who injured her hand when it was struck by an opponentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the final finish that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having troubles with. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the accumulation of lots of little things. Once we get into the Big Tens, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different atmosphere. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new game almost, so hopefully everyone will step up.â&#x20AC;? williamcarey2012@u.northwestern.edu

NU defense without Blades, Kupe canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t convert on shots From Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer, page 8 goal, but we got unlucky.â&#x20AC;? The loss means the Wildcats need Indiana to beat current leader Penn State in order to get a share of the Big Ten title. It was the third Big Ten match the Cats have either lost or given up the lead on the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final shot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the Big Ten,â&#x20AC;? coach Tim Lenahan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss a play, or somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to make you pay.â&#x20AC;? NU wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at full strength: Mark Blades, NUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior left back and representative on the Herrmann Award watch list, left the game only 53 seconds into the match when it became clear

his leg was bothering him. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill is typically a midfielder but was subbed into the game to join the back line. It was the first time he had played as a defender since NUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhibition season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played back there before,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But playing against a Big Ten team like Michigan is a little bit different.â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill misplayed a few balls but was overall an adequate replacement for Blades, blocking shots in the both the first and second overtimes to prevent shots on goal. The real issue for NU was on offense. The Cats had more than enough chances, taking 17 shots, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t convert on any of them. Sophomore Oliver Kupe found himself alone in

front of goal twice. NUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assist leader misfired on a cross from junior Matt Eliason, kicking the ball over the crossbar. Later in the game, Kupe beat his defender and fired a shot from pointblank range that required a quick reflex save from Michiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chris Blais. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oliverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to become one of those guys who not only creates opportunities, but is someone who finishes them,â&#x20AC;? Lenahan said. NU also got close to scoring from the corner. With NUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usual corner kick specialist Blades out, Piero Bellizzi and Eamon Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill gave NU multiple chances to score, with the closest being a Drew Pavlovich header that glanced off the left post.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got our chances. We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t convert,â&#x20AC;? senior keeper Misha Rosenthal said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They hung around long enough to create some havoc and make some plays at the end.â&#x20AC;? The key play of the game came when Michigan senior forward Mauro Fuzelli beat Bellizzi off the dribble and fired a shot that Rosenthal saved, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold on to. The Cats made three stops at the goal line, but the ball rolled out to an unmarked Schmitt, who ended the game with his second goal of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you get in a danger situation in overtime, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no coming back,â&#x20AC;? Lenahan said.

“It was Halloween, and we just decided that there was no way that we were going to lose.” NU volleyball player Elyse Glab, on winning both weekend matches

NU gains confidence from narrow wins By Katherine Driessen the daily northwestern

The Cats had a reason to cheer at the end of their games against Purdue and Indiana. Both victories came down to a fifth set. With the weekend sweep, NU improved to 2-0 against the Boilermakers and Hoosiers on the season.

Cats’ early lead ends in familiar one-goal defeat By Bill Carey the daily northwestern

Once is chance. Twice is coincidence. Third time is a pattern. For the third consecutive weekend, No. 20 Northwestern engaged in a back-and-forth battle with a Big Ten opponent, only to fall a goal short. The Wildcats jumped out quickly aga inst No. 13 Ohio State, but Field Hockey were unable to hold their lead for Saturday long. Behind a pair of first-half goals, the Buckeyes beat the Cats Indiana 2-1 Saturday at Lakeside Field. “We played a fabulous game,” c o a c h Tr a c e y Fuchs said. “We’re playing really, reNU ally good hockey, and we’re just one or two degrees, a few details off of being really great. There’s a big difference between being good and great.” For the first 10 minutes of the game, it looked as though the emotion from the Cats’ pre-game Senior Day celebration would carry them to victory. NU dominated the ball at the

Tuesday, November 3, 2009

For the Wildcats, there is nothing more familiar than winning a frantic, unpredictable five-set match. Of its four Big Ten wins this season, Northwestern has won them all in five-set nailbiters. “We like to win in a dramatic fashion I guess,” junior middle blocker Sabel Moffet said. “We will get behind but we like to come right back at you.” NU came back strong all weekend, winning at Purdue and Indiana in two five-set matches. This weekend’s sweep marked the Cats’ first road wins since the 2008 season. NU has now won both its games against Purdue and Indiana on the season. “It’s a good springboard for us heading into the rest of the season,” junior setter Elyse Glab said. “It gives us the right sort of confidence to take on the rest of the Big Ten.” Glab offered a career-best 66 kills and propelling the offense against Indiana on Saturday. Moffet t and fel low junior midd le blocker Naomi Johnson paced the offense, dishing out 39 and 19 kills, respectively. But it wasn’t just the middles delivering at the net. “It was really awesome because our outside came up really big all weekend,” Moffett said. “They were putting away balls and taking the pressure off the middle.” NU’s outside hitters, senior Ariel Baxterback and sophomore Alexandra Ayers, provided a diversion on the wing, both notching seven kills against the Hoosiers and 13 against the Boilermakers. Ayers recorded her second double-double for the Cats by adding a career-high 18 digs to her kills against the Boilermakers. “It was my first time winning at Purdue,” Baxterback said. “The

team just went out there and absolutely refused to lose, everyone on the court just kept fighting.” The offense was backed up by a strong defensive performance from senior libero Kate Nobilio, who was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week for the second time this season. Nobilio contributed 42 digs on the weekend. “Kate came up with so many important digs,” Baxterback said. “She really helps to keep us in games.” To close out the weekend Volleyball with two wins Friday on the road, Nobi l io a nd the rest of the Cat s had to sync up their NU defense a nd offense to clinch a tightly- c onte s te d fifth set Purdue against Indiana that had seven match Saturday points. A block from a middle combo of redshirt freshman K a t h r y n Chrystal, who NU had 13 kills on the weekend, and Johnson was the game’s Indiana winning play. “We played with a really strong sense of determination and never got frantic,” Glab said. “It was Halloween, and we just decided that there was no way that we were going to lose.”

start, with several opportunities near the net, which ultimately culminated in Chelsea Armstrong’s 22nd goal of the season. The next 10 minutes belonged to the Buckeyes, though. Four minutes after Armstrong’s goal, Ohio State knotted the score. The Buckeyes took the lead for good seven minutes later, when Ohio State forward Maria Briones gained possession of a deflection in front of the net, then juggled the ball on her stick before flipping it into the goal. The second half was an even battle. Both teams had chances to score, but neither could put the ball in the cage. “It was anyone’s game,” senior forward Elizabeth Dobbs said. “We had some shots. They had some shots. We had spectacular defense that second half. Our offense was going the whole time. Unfortunately, it didn’t go our way.” NU had multiple scoring chances, but was unable to capitalize on any of them. The Cats had four shots on goal in the second half. The team also created chances on plays where an NU player cuts backdoor and looks to tip in a pass from across the circle. But the team had trouble connecting on these passes. See Field Hockey, page 7

In the finals seconds of play, Northwestern kept its chances of a solo Big Ten title alive not once, not twice, but three times. But the Wildcats couldn’t manage a fourth. No. 12 NU (9-3-4, 2-2-1 Big Ten) held Michigan (10-5-1, 2-3 Big Ten) scoreless for 103 minutes of Sunday’s match, but when the ball got loose Men’s in the box in Soccer double overtime, Friday the Wolverines pounced.
