thelantern ‘Sully’ assumes veteran responsibilities No. 1 Buckeyes remain unbeaten by leaning on freshman during crunch time Tra vis Koze k For The Lantern kozek.2@osu.edu With the score tied, 17 seconds to play, and a No. 1 ranking and unblemished record at stake, most teams in college basketball would turn to their savvy veteran to deliver the win. Not Ohio State. When the Buckeyes’ perfect season was in jeopardy against Northwestern on Saturday night it was freshman forward Jared Sullinger who was called on to lead his team to victory. “As soon as we got the steal, I looked up and there was 15 seconds on the shot clock,” senior forward David Lighty said. “Coach (Thad Matta) kind of looked at me and I said, ‘Keep going, keep going,’ and they had the play set up for us, and we just ran it right then and there and it worked to perfection.” “Perfection,” in this case, meant finding Sullinger in the post, where he was able to draw a foul and drain one of his two free throws to secure the nerveracking 58-57 win. Despite Sullinger’s relative inexperience at the collegiate level, his teammates said they have total confidence in his ability to deliver. “That’s a play we like to go to, throw it to him

Adam ha wkins Lantern reporter hawkins.326@osu.edu Ohio State doctors performed the first implant of a device used to combat sleep apnea in the United States on Jan. 21. The device, known as the RespiCardia System, is used to treat central sleep apnea, a sleep disorder that limits a person’s breathing while he or she is asleep. Dr. Ralph Augostini, an electrophysiologist, led the procedure at OSU’s Ross Heart Hospital. It was the fourth implant worldwide. Current treatment of central sleep apnea is limited to a tightly fitting mask that blows air into the lungs to keep the patient breathing. Dr. William Abraham, professor of internal medicine and director of cardiovascular medicine at OSU, said many patients just can’t tolerate the mask. “The potential (for the RespiCardia System) is that it is implantable, automatic and doesn’t require any work for the patient,” Abraham said. “If proven effective, we want to demonstrate that this device can adequately treat central sleep apnea, and if we can, there will be a lot of appeal for the device.” Central sleep apnea is a major problem in people with heart disease and people who have suffered a brain injury, Abraham said. “There are six million Americans with heart failure; about 80 percent of those people have sleep apnea and about 60 percent of those people have central sleep apnea,” Abraham said. “So obviously

OSU nuclear reactor used for research JUDy Sa mson Lantern reporter samson.27@osu.edu

OSU’s reactor compared to a commercial reactor

The water in the pool was a lighter blue than the chlorine water of a swimming pool. The pool had several rods sticking into it. The core of Ohio State’s nuclear reactor was sitting at the bottom. OSU’s nuclear reactor is housed in the Reactor Building on 1298 Kinnear Rd. It was built in 1960 and first operated in 1961, according to the nuclear reactor lab’s website. “This was kind of the era of atoms for peace,” said Andrew Kauffman, associate director of the reactor lab. “Post World War II, where people were looking for peaceful uses for nuclear (power). In that time period a lot of research reactors were built at universities.” Marion Poole, a physics professor, and graduate students Walt Carey and Dick Bailey started the lab, said Don Miller, a retired OSU professor in nuclear engineering and the director of the lab between 1979 and 1997. OSU students in the nuclear engineering master’s or doctorate program or the nuclear engineering minor program can use the lab for research. Several other universities around Ohio, such as Cleveland State University and Case Western University, have used the lab. High school groups have also toured the lab. The reactor is used to expose materials to radiation and detect how the material might degrade or enhance. The reactor can also be used to see what a material is made of by ways of neutron activation analysis, or NAA. The water inside the pool is purified through filtering processes so it won’t become radioactive. If regular water is put in the pool, the minerals in the water, such as chlorine, sodium or calcium, can become radioactive when they are exposed to neutrons. “If you just put tap water in the pool and ran the reactor for the first time, you’d have a radioactive pool,” Kauffman said. The water in the pool helps keep the reactor cool, moderates the neutrons with its hydrogen and acts as a barrier.

campus Foodbank CEO to student organizations: collaborate KyLe KnoX Lantern reporter knox.154@osu.edu Leaders of more than 100 Ohio State student organizations heard about the value of collaborative efforts when Mid-Ohio Foodbank CEO and President Matt Habash spoke at the Student Organizational Summit at the Ohio Union Saturday. Members of Ohio Staters Inc., the StudentAlumni Council, Ohio Union Activities Board and Undergraduate Student Government organized the summit in the Great Hall Meeting Room, which included breakout sessions on collaboration between student organizations, leadership and engaging membership for about 300 people in attendance. For USG Student Life Committee Director Bryan Ashton, a third-year in accounting and an organizer, the goal of the summit was to show student organizations the greater potential in collaboration. “With 1,000 student organizations, there can be overlap in terms of what organizations are doing. Hopefully having two or three organizations working together creates a stronger product,” Ashton said. Habash, an OSU graduate who has served on Columbus City Council, discussed the value of working with other organizations to accomplish goals. He related the “one university” concept to the student organizations’ need for collaboration. “As you think back to President (E. Gordon) Gee trying to build on a ‘one university,’ what better way to do it than get the leaders of the student organizations thinking the same way,“ Habash said. The Mid-Ohio Foodbank is focused on sustainable operations. Habash described the organization’s new facility in Grove City, a $16 million LEEDcertified building designed for recycling and green operations. LEED is a certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. “One of the things we really tried to do with the conference this year was show the application of

student organization experiences in the real world,” Ashton said. “I think that is something that he tied in very, very well, the whole idea of collaborating and how that worked in city government and also with the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.” Liesl Bittner, a first-year in business and member of OUAB Special Events Committee, said the lessons Habash brought in could be applied to organizations on campus. “There are so many organizations, but a lot of us have similar goals and we don’t even realize it, but when we get together, we can save time; we can save money,” Bittner said. “The outcome is so much more efficient when we work together.” With their efforts in food distribution, the Mid-Ohio Foodbank is collaborating with other organizations to educate the public on healthy living. “It’s one thing to tell people to eat well and to go out and walk and get exercise,” Habash said. “If you live in a community that doesn’t have sidewalks and isn’t safe, exercise is a little problem.” Habash said his philosophy regarding meetings stemmed from training on hosting. Cell phones and laptops often distract attendees, he said. In his view, those distracted individuals weren’t really in the meeting at all. Vice president of the Morrill Tower Activities Board Derek Erskine, a first-year in political science, said he agreed with Habash’s views. “In today’s age, it’s about technology. At one point, you just have to step back and put that stuff aside,” Erskine said. “Its more important if you’re able to listen than if you’re able to speak.” Habash said his son Justin, an Army captain, was a source of inspiration. “Talk about leadership; it’s one thing to sit here and talk about doing it from an organization, it’s another thing to talk about it when they’re shooting at you and bombing you,” Habash said. “I’ve learned more from him in talking to him about what true leadership means under fire literally than I have in any of my work.”

Thad Matta realizes Sullinger’s knack for making big shots in the post and let him make the best decision,” freshman point guard Aaron Craft said. “He has our confidence to make the right decision. If he is open then he will do what he did tonight, and if not, he’ll make the pass out.” Sullinger is no stranger to having the ball in his hands with the game on the line. The 6-foot-9 forward led his Northland High School team to a state Final Four appearance in 2008 and won an Ohio state championship the following season. And although the game programs list Sullinger as a freshman, he said that doesn’t matter once he steps on the court. “On the court I try to carry myself as a man and

“We have enough water in between the core and where you stand at the pool top that it’s very safe to stand up there when you’re operating the core because it also absorbs radiation to make it safe to be up there,” Kauffman said. From the control panel in the reactor lab, one licensed operator can control and monitor the reactor and the conditions surrounding the building. “We monitor power two different ways; we monitor rate of change of power, basically not only how fast we’re going, but how fast we’re accelerating,” said Kevin Herminghuysen, a research associate. The radioactivity that is emitted into the

Though Sullinger is just 22 games into his freshman campaign, Matta has no problem putting the game in the star forward’s hands. “I knew we were going to get a pretty good look at it,” Matta said of his team’s final possession against Northwestern. “He’s got a knack; he’s hit some big shots and some big free throws in his career, and we were pretty pleased.” The Buckeyes return to action when they host Michigan at 7 p.m. Thursday.

environment is also monitored. When the reactor is operating, the lab has all of the doors and windows closed, so the air goes out of a small fan near the ceiling. There is a tube connected to the fan and that is then connected to a radiation detector, which detects any radiation that might be emitted into the air. “We’re relatively small and we only run one shift (from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.),” Herminghuysen said. “We are only operating when we have the reason. We emit very little (radiation).” The allowable radiation exposure to an outside person, according to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s website, is 100 millirem per year. The reactor only emits 2 to 3 percent of that. Americans receive 620 millirem of radiation per year through cosmic radiation, the Earth and internal radiation.

RespiCardia System will market device in Europe next year a lot could benefit from this therapy if it proves to be effective.” The RespiCardia System is a product of the Minnesota-based company Cardiac Concepts. “Our goal is primarily to bring a new therapy to meet an unmet clinical need,” said Bonnie William abraham Labosky, president and CEO of Cardiac Concepts. “There’s currently no effective or acceptable therapy, so we recognized this need and we’d like to address it.” Cardiac Concepts was formed about four years ago, Labosky said. The idea for the RespiCardia System was approved for clinical studies and OSU was the first to fulfill all the requirements necessary to begin the studies. “We’ve had a good working relationship with Ohio State over the past four years that started with Dr. Abraham,” Labosky said. Abraham said the success of this procedure is a major step for the OSU Medical Center. “We are attempting, in our heart program, to be national leaders in development of new drugs and procedures to treat heart disease,” Abraham said. “This helps establish the Ohio State Medical Center as an international leader in treating heart disease.” Labosky said she gives OSU “great kudos” for its work in the medical center and its involvement with Cardiac Concepts. Abraham has worked with Cardiac Concepts over the last four years, conducting studies on heart disease and its connection with sleep apnea. Dr. Rami Khayat, associate professor of clinical, pulmonary and critical care at OSU, has also been an adviser with Cardiac Concepts and the RespiCardia System. “We were a part of the technology from

The device, however, is still investigational in the U.S. “It’s a long pathway to get a medical device approved in the United States,” Labosky said. “Here we have to go through the rigors of getting an FDA approval.” Labosky said the implant’s impact on the future of treating sleep apnea is huge. “It could have a huge positive effect on patients suffering from the disease,” Labosky said. “Patients will get a great night’s sleep and it can change their whole quality of life because it has the potential to improve their cardiovascular health and can improve heart failure.”

the beginning,” Khayat said. “Once it’s shown effective, it’s very promising for eliminating apnea with an implantable device that is very convenient and less cumbersome for the patient.” The device delivers small electrical pulses to the phrenic nerve, which is connected to the diaphragm, a large breathing muscle, said a press release from Doug Flowers, director of the Medical Center Public Affairs and Media Relations. The diaphragm responds to the pulses resulting in a more natural breathing pattern. The RespiCardia System earned a CE marking in Europe, allowing the product to be sold, and Labosky said the company would start marketing the system early next year.

student voice Egypt protests have international implications michael jasko t For The Lantern jaskot.4@osu.edu By now, I’m guessing you’ve heard about the violence in Egypt during the past week. Unfortunately, it is still unclear where this situation is headed. Could it be a full revolution, a la the Taliban in Afghanistan in the 1990s? Not likely. Will it be suppressed in the same manner as the Iranian election protests? Possibly. Can these protesters spark enough drive to replace the regime and establish a transparent democracy capable of earning the respect of the Western world? Not a chance. We must be wary that these demonstrations do not disrupt the foundation of the Egyptian state in a way that compromises its very important place in the Arab world. Judging by the wave of protest sweeping Egypt at the moment, it might be fair to assume this Arab state is simply just another brutish dictatorship that mirrors many others in the Middle East. However, Egypt dwells in stark contrast to other states that are much more volatile. Most importantly, it is not a member of OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries), and it generally finds itself to be much more friendly with the West than with other Middle East states. Furthermore, Egypt has become a crucial mediator in the Israeli-Palestinian saga. In truth, Egypt can be considered an Arab anomaly insofar that it openly condemns terror in the name of Islam. This is why the coming weeks will be so critical. How can a nation so unlike other states in the Middle East maintain its stature as an ally of the West while simultaneously undergoing a social uprising? The answer might be that too much change could be a disastrous thing. Amid the growing pressure, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak named Omar Suleiman, head of the country’s CIA-equivalent EGID, to the previously vacant vice president position. This might seem to be a political maneuver to appease the rioting masses, but in reality, this man will most likely be the next president of Egypt. Every Egyptian Head of State since

1954 has been a high-ranking military officer and Mr. Suleiman certainly fits that mold. Additionally, it would be foolish to suggest that the next president will be someone outside of the established regime that ruled for 30 years. Dictators always promote from within. Unfortunately, the protesters might have no better option. Not only would an entirely new administration be likely to reverse Egypt’s stance on numerous issues, the same issues that set it apart from the rest of the Arab world, but it could possibly usher in a new age of radical Islam. I’m referring to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Arab world’s most powerful political organization, a group deeply involved with underground Egyptian politics. Currently, the Brotherhood is perceived as the most influential Islamic movement in the world and its founder, Hassan al-Banna, wrote in his book, “Jihad,” “Jihad is an obligation from Allah on every Muslim and cannot be ignored nor evaded.” Certainly, I would hope that the protesters do not wish to instate these zealots as their new leaders. That is why a compromise must be made. The continuation of Mubarak’s regime or the appointment of Mr. Suleiman can be no worse than the false promises of radical Islam. Choosing the lesser of two evils would be a wise decision for the protesters. President Barack Obama also needs to show support for a new administration promptly. Without American support, it is likely the new regime will fall into the same autocratic spell that overtook President Mubarak. Above all, the welfare of the Egyptian people is at stake. Voter turnout is marred in the single digits and 20 percent of the population lives on $1 per day, according to the United Nations World Food Programme website. I hope the protesters can realize that gradual democratic change focusing on the welfare of the people is much more attainable and sustainable than a complete political revolution.

Students aren’t learning, so why Black History Month increase funding for education? more than just MLK University, Northridge, was charged with urinating on a colleague’s office door. So it makes sense why President Barack Obama made education a major focus of his State of the Union Address. He mentioned the importance of “investing in education,” and ensuring that all Americans have the opportunity to attain higher education. These pleas appear noble on their surface, but I’m not sure that either one is really in touch with reality. The United States already invests a lot of money on the development of young minds. According to The Department of Education, the U.S. in 2006 spent $10,267 per student in K-12 and $25,109 per student in college. Both numbers have been increasing steadily since the 1970s. So it appears that spending exorbitant amounts of money on education has produced students who can’t read, write, count or spell. In the same week that two studies confirmed that spending has not translated into smarter students, the president seemed to call for more spending on education. The same can be said about ensuring that all students have access to college. More students than ever before attend college. A common complaint about our ineffective public high schools is overcrowded classrooms. Could this also be true for places of higher learning? Are perhaps too many people attending college? I am not one to believe something just because it appeared in a study or is a popular talking point. Nor am I solely blaming the schools. Students also play a major role in their own demise. But countless studies have been published throughout the years that have yielded similar results. It seems pouring large sums of money into a faulty educational system that produces underachieving students is like paying money at a gas pump and then driving off without filling the tank.

In the past week, there has been a lot of attention on education. A new book, “Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses,” explains the findings of a recent standardized test administered on 24 college campuses. The test was given to 2,300 students in their first semester and then again at the end of BRAD MILLE R their second year. miller.4410@osu.edu It indicated that, despite many college students receiving good grades, most lack critical thinking, complex reasoning and writing skills. The book also says that 45 percent of students do not show significant signs of learning in their first two years. Granted, the study wasn’t exactly fair. It did not include subjects in which college students traditionally excel, such as binge drinking, videogames or Facebook. Had these areas been accounted for, I have no doubt the numbers would have been more favorable. But apparently, colleges are not the only schools at which learning is at a minimum. Another study released last week said much the same thing about elementary and high schools throughout the country, mostly noting deficiencies in math and science. All is not lost, however. Yet another story said two secondgraders in Oakland, Calif., were smart enough to engage in oral sex in front of their teacher and classmates. Not to be outdone, a math professor at California State

PAT RICIA CUNNINGHAM cunningham.212@osu.edu

This week will begin what we call Black History Month or, at Ohio State, “United Black World Month.” This month is a federally recognized, nationwide celebration that provides the opportunity for all Americans to reflect on the significant roles that African-Americans have contributed in the shaping of the United States. It is also contested because there are those who do not want to take time out to celebrate the contributions and history of people of color. This hostility is rooted in suggestions that white people are not celebrated. History in the West is mostly the tales of men, so that the story is gendered. It is also white, so that it is racialized. Thoughtfully bringing the history of all people to the forefront is what Black History Month represents. Carter G. Woodson, considered to be a pioneer in the study of African-American history, is given much of the credit for Black History Month. The son of former slaves, Woodson spent his childhood working in coal mines and quarries. After years of hard work and determination, Woodson went on to receive his master’s degree in history from the University of Chicago, and he eventually earned a doctorate from Harvard. It was during this time that Woodson began a national discussion that history textbooks left out America’s black population. Woodson took on the task of writing African-Americans back into the nation’s history. He founded the publication, the Journal of Negro History, which would use the work of scholars from

multiple fields to contribute to this effort. In 1926, he developed the first week celebrating black history. He knew that until history became everyone’s story instead of a winner’s story, this process needed to happen. If we were to just look at inventors and innovators that happened to be black we can understand why we need Black History Month and taking time to learn more than the standard of Martin Luther King Jr. and Harriet Tubman. This is not to lessen their contributions, but to attest that there are thousands of lives unexamined who have helped build our nation. For example, there are folks who have created and cultivated hundreds of patents that set the U.S. as a world leader from the 1800s to the 1900s. George Crum invented the potato chip. Charles Drew pioneered blood preservation and helped to establish the modern blood bank. Lonnie Johnson created the Super Soaker. The list is endless. Robert Pelham invented a tabulating device and a tallying machine for the U.S. Census Bureau. Daniel Williams created the method for and accomplished the first open heart surgery. Patricia Bath created a laser-based device to perform cataracts surgery. All things and people we might not know about, but yet we know Thomas Edison and Benjamin Franklin. Looking at the accomplishments and contributions of black people then provides the framework of incorporating the contributions and amazing feats of everyday people. Black History Month reminds us to recognize the voices that become silent from acts of injustice. It is because of Woodson’s work that other marginalized groups, women (March), Latinos (mid-September to mid-October), indigenous Americans (November) and others have months that are used to write their lives and contributions of their groups back into mainstream narrative. When we learn of the contributions of black people, we correct the stereotype that the only field a black person can go into is basketball or football. Knowledge is powerful, but only when we have the opportunity to know it.

Dancing, hip-hop highlighted Kel sey Givens Lantern reporter givens.64@osu.edu Spinning records and bodies were part of a breakdancing competition in which the winner walked away with $200. Six Columbus hip-hop acts and one breakdancing group took to the stage at Newport Music Hall Saturday night to highlight local talent in the “Real Live 1” show, headlined by the L.E.S. Crew. The combination dance competition and concert began with the first round of a b-boy, a hip-hop term for breakdancing, competition. Participants formed a circle in front of the stage and began jumping in one at a time to show off their moves. A Columbus dance group, the Shaolin Funk B-boys, judged the competition and after a half hour of dancing, chose three men for the top eight. The competition continued as the first band of the night, The Apes, took to the stage. All but one of the songs the band performed was wordless, but incorporated classical and hip-hop elements. The group’s violinist, Adrian Jusdanis, said the band tried to use new musical elements into hip-hop music. “I think people grabbed onto it and appreciated it,” he said. “It’s a hip-hop show and we bring elements of the genre into our music.” After The Apes finished the set, the judges chose five more finalists to bring onstage for the b-boy competition. There were then four dance “battles,” each between two of the eight finalists, resulting in the choice of four remaining finalists. After the second round of the dance competition, the group Tempted came onstage. It played a version of hip-hop that used a touch of rock music. “It’s all hip-hop,” said Josh Altafer, Tempted’s guitarist. “It’s all just a little bit different.” Two rappers, Ill Poetic and Illogic, followed Tempted. Both rappers focused more on fast lyrics and freestyling than music. Once the rappers finished their sets, the third round of the b-boy competition began. The two finalists selected were “Squirt” and “Evil Monk.” “Squirt,” actually Eric Hoang, a fourth-year in international business, said the final round was “going to be a fun ride.” Once the two finalists had been chosen, the band Shrub took the stage. This band had a reggae, hip-hop feel to its music. The band’s performance carried over into the final round of the b-boy dance competition. The final two competitors each got four rounds to battle it out. The “Evil Monk,” a dancer from Cleveland, won and received a $200 prize. Once the b-boy dance competition was over, the headlining act took the stage. The other groups involved agreed that the night went well. Jusdanis said he was “excited just to be a part of it.”

Garfield, Webb sling webs of hope for this Spidey fan WCBE presents Rebelution 7 pm @ Newport Music Hall

ARTS Columnist

I hate Spider-Man. Some might OUAB Karaoke Night blame director Sam Raimi, and after “Drag To Hell”, who-wouldn’t? 8 pm Me @ Ohio Union Woody’s Tavern But I blame Tobey Maguire. There’s something about his demeanor that makes me want to smash porcelain plates over my head. Let me back up and explain. Ever since I learned that Andrew Garfield (“The Social Network”) was going to play the new Peter Parker in the “Spider-Man” franchise’s reboot, I was a wee bit skeptical. VANESSA SPATES At this point, I had not yet seen spates.3@osu.edu the award-winning film, so I wasn’t familiar with Garfield. That changed about a week ago, and I can now say that I am head over heels for him. I am putting all my hopes in this young stud to bring me back the love I had for America’s favorite webbed hero before Maguire ruined him. Hollywood won’t be escaping blame, though. It chose Maguire. Now, critics might say I’m being overly harsh and that the first “Spider-Man” was a blockbuster success, making a cool $403 million domestically since 2002, according to boxoffice.com. It’s also received an 89 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Although I did like the first movie when it came out, the sequels were dull, sloppily put together and all-around failures in my book. The anticipation is steadily rising for the new “Spider-Man” films and I am one of those dorky fans that has followed every super hero movie ever made in the last 12 years. I was in disbelief at first when I heard that Raimi had been booted off the project and the studio was going for a younger, refreshed cast.

My spirits were lifted when I heard Emma Stone (“Easy A”) was going to play Parker’s first love, Gwen Stacy. Although some die-hard Spider-Man fans might be appalled at me saying this next statement, I stick by it: I am tired of Mary Jane. I am certainly tired of Kirsten Dunst’s portrayal her. I think this reboot will be good for the snarky, sarcastic and genetically altered hero. I think it’ll bring back the seriousness that was lost in the last two films. There should always be a balance of humor and thought-provoking themes in superhero films. Director of the new film, Marc Webb, who also directed “500 Days of Summer,” should bring a fresh spin on the old superhero and not let the past films hold him back. The new movie will show Peter Parker in his high school years again, which I always thought was the best part of his history. Although this does mean seeing Ben Parker die again and, spoiler alert, the eventual death of Gwen Stacy at the hands of the Green Goblin, if the director chooses to stick by the comic book. A fair trade for, what I believe, will be a better, more cohesive and youthful “Spider-Man.”

Does Spider-Man need a reboot, or were the originals fine? Weigh in at thelantern.com.

Andrew Garfield of ‘The Social Network’ is set to play Spider-Man in the 2012 reboot of the film series.

Anthony Hopkins one of the few things right about ‘The Rite’ Sarah Suter Lantern reporter suter.35@osu.edu “The Rite” is a film inspired by true events, based off of Matt Baglio’s “The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist.” The fact that the original story holds some truth is disturbing, but sadly the film is not. Even with Anthony Hopkins, known for his chilling portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs,” the film is predictable and does not do much to test the limits of the PG-13 rating. The movie begins by meticulously developing the character of Michael Kovak, played by Colin O’Donoghue. The film somehow makes O’Donughue’s being a mortician look mundane, even though working with dead bodies would not be normal for most people. This sluggish background information continues for a quarter of the movie. The message is the Kovaks run a funeral home. The film makes clear that Kovak and his father have a strained relationship. Because of the nature of his work, his father is odd, which resulted in an

6A

abnormal childhood for Michael as shown through choppy flashbacks. In an attempt to follow his father’s wishes, and to get away, he decides to enter a Catholic seminary. Kovak realizes his doubts regarding faith are excessive, so he sends a resignation e-mail to one of his teachers. The teacher feels he should not drop out, and thinks viewing exorcisms might spark his faith or suggest a new career path. He threatens to force Kovak to pay $100,000 in loans immediately if he doesn’t attend a training course about exorcism before he decides to officially drop out. Kovak grudgingly agrees to take the class, and goes to the Vatican. He asks scientific questions during class discussion that show he has doubts about the authenticity of demonic possession, and this leads his teacher to tell him about an unorthodox priest, Father Lucas Trevant (Anthony Hopkins). About this time he meets Angeline (Alice Braga), a journalist who is also taking the course. The on-screen relationship between Kovak and Angeline is confusing. The nature of their bond is not orchestrated thoroughly, so there are fickle hints of a romantic connection.

The first time Kovak meets Father Lucas, the priest is performing an exorcism on a young girl and invites Kovak to watch. The girl is fairly creepy, but her portrayal of a possession is conventional for this genre of film. Surprisingly, Trevant answers his cell phone during the exorcism. There are several humorous moments like this throughout the movie, which make it difficult to take any of it seriously. Although the girl throws up nails, can see things she shouldn’t be able to see and speaks languages she didn’t know before, Kovak still believes she could just be schizophrenic. He then meets a young boy who is allegedly possessed and has huge bite marks all over his body, which do not look like anything a human could do. After being repeatedly beaten over the head with signs that the devil is real, Kovak’s skepticism starts to waver, but only slightly. Even after he speaks with his father on the phone, and then learns that his father actually died six hours prior to the conversation, he is still not convinced. When it seems Trevant has become possessed, it is up to Kovak to save him. He is forced to face his doubts and decide what he believes during

“The Rite” Warner Bros. New line Cinema

Overall: the exorcism of his mentor, during which Hopkins’ acting skills shine. Hopkins’ performance might be enough to salvage this film, but he cannot stop the film from being predictable, especially for those who have seen exorcism films before. “The Rite” was the top movie over the weekend.

‘Thomas the Tank’ keeps reloading, firing up shots BEN AXELROD Senior Lantern reporter axelrod.17@osu.edu Joining a new team with established veterans and the top high school recruit in the nation, Ohio State freshman forward Deshaun Thomas wasn’t about to stop doing what he loves to do the most: shoot the basketball. “It’s funny ’cause everybody always talks about it,” Thomas said, smiling. “I like to shoot; I like to score. I mean that’s what everybody likes to do.” Thomas said he developed his passion for scoring at a young age. During his childhood in Fort Wayne, Ind., he and his basketball were inseparable. “I always had a ball in my hand when I was young. I even took it to school,” Thomas said. “I used to shoot it a lot at the parks and the YMCA.” Thomas’ eagerness to shoot the ball carried over into his time at Bishop Luers High School, where he scored the third-most points in Indiana high school basketball history. “In high school I had the green light since freshman year, so that became comfortable to me. So if I’m open, I’m going to try to shoot it,” Thomas said. “I took a lot of shots in high school. I’d pull up to the volleyball line, halfcourt.” Despite joining a roster at OSU that includes three of the top 32 scorers in school history — seniors Jon Diebler and David Lighty and junior William Buford — as well as heralded freshman Jared Sullinger, Thomas never became gun-shy. His new teammates took notice of the forward’s quick trigger, assessing him a nickname to poke fun at his willingness to shoot the ball anywhere, anytime. “Thomas the Tank,” Thomas said. “You can’t stop the tank from shooting.”

Freshman forward Deshaun Thomas attempts a shot during Ohio State’s 70-48 victory over Iowa on Jan. 19. Joking aside, Buford said that Thomas’ scorer’s mentality has been a welcome addition to this year’s team. “He’s a scorer — nobody has a problem when he shoots,” Buford said. “When he shoots, we all think it’s going in anyways, so, you know, we have no problem with it.” Thomas’ quick trigger paid off for the top-ranked Buckeyes in their Jan. 22 win against Illinois. Coming off the bench, Thomas hit two 3-pointers, fueling a 14-0 OSU run that helped the Buckeyes overcome an eight-point second-half deÿcit. “I got in the Illinois game, ÿred up two shots. I wasn’t even stretched or nothing like that,” Thomas said. “At that moment, I was just feeling it.”

Despite seeing sporadic playing time thus far at OSU — Thomas has played as many as 29 minutes in a game and as few as seven — he has been efÿcient for the Buckeyes on the court, connecting on more than 50 percent of his shots and averaging 9.2 points per game. Thomas said although he has a reputation of being a scorer, his priority for the Buckeyes is on the defensive end of the ° oor, especially because he knows what the result of an opponent’s missed shot could be. “Play defense ÿrst,” Thomas said. “I know defense gets you transition buckets.”

Grading the Buckeyes: Even No. 1 OSU can’t get straight A’s

Buckeye report card

DYLAN TUSSEL Assistant sports editor tussel.2@osu.edu Men’s hockey swept in Alaska The Ohio State men’s hockey team left Alaska this weekend with a little extra baggage. The Buckeyes traveled more than 3,000 miles to Fairbanks, Alaska, and picked up two losses against Alaska on Friday and Saturday. OSU junior goalie Cal Heeter held the Nanooks scoreless during regulation, with a game total of 29 saves Friday. Just 11 seconds into overtime, Alaska was granted its ÿfth power-play chance of the game, which it quickly converted into the game-winning goal. Alaska completed its sweep of the Buckeyes with a 6-2 win Saturday, a game in which OSU had ÿve power-play chances but converted on none. OSU fell to 13-12-2 and 8-10-2-2 in conference play. The Buckeyes will host Michigan State at 7:35 p.m. Friday.

Of fe nse : A De f e n s e : B+ D : g n i d n u o Re b B : y a l p h c n Be C o achi ng: A CHRIS BIDERMAN Senior Lantern reporter biderman.1@osu.edu The bottom line for the No. 1-ranked Ohio State men’s basketball team is that it is a perfect 22-0 after completing the ÿrst half of its conference schedule. But it’s not enough for coach Thad Matta, who continues to preach daily the value of improvement to his players. That said, where has this team excelled, and where can it improve? Let’s put on our professor’s cap and give out some grades with nine games remaining in the regular season. Offense: A It’s not just the talent on the ° oor or Matta’s offensive system; it’s the combination of both that would make the creator of Reese’s proud. The Buckeyes are shooting 50 percent from the ÿeld, good for third in the country, thanks to their outstanding balance that allows them to work inside out. Freshman forward Jared Sullinger has been a juggernaut on the block, scoring 18 points per game on 57.7 percent shooting. The advantage of having such a dominant post player who demands double-teams cannot be overstated, especially for a team that features as many quality outside shooters as OSU. Veteran swingmen David Lighty, William Buford and Jon Diebler, are all shooting better than 43 percent from 3-point

CODY COUSINO / Asst. multimedia editor

range. Diebler’s 47.7 percent leads the Buckeyes, who are 11th in the country in 3-point shooting at 40.7 percent. Diebler also leads the Big Ten in threes made per game at 2.86. Add freshman point guard Aaron Craft (43.5 percent) to the mix when Matta substitutes him for Dallas Lauderdale, and you have a lineup with four capable long-range shooters paired with a dominant post presence. Defense: B+ When players talk about Matta’s emphasis on improving every day, the question arises: At 22-0, where can this team continue to improve? “Defense,” Buford said Friday. Matta’s continued emphasis on defense has his team second in the conference, allowing 57.5 points per game. Although many teams choose to play zone and force oppositions to take jump shots, OSU relies heavily on a pressure man-to-man defensive scheme. Lighty and Craft are the team’s best perimeter defenders while Buford and Diebler continue to improve. Lauderdale and Sullinger have good length and physicality in the paint, but Sullinger still has room to grow as a defender. Lauderdale is third in the Big Ten in blocked shots per game with 1.8. But Sullinger is only averaging half a block per contest. Aside from Lauderdale and Sullinger, the team doesn’t have a quality interior defensive presence.

continued as Report on 2B

Women’s hockey picks up pair of wins Ohio State freshman forward Ally Tarr evaporated the St. Cloud State women’s hockey team’s dream of picking up its ÿrst win Saturday in St. Cloud, Minn. With less than a minute remaining in regulation, it appeared overtime was on the horizon for the teams tied 2-2. But Tarr scored with 51 seconds remaining, securing a 3-2 win for the Buckeyes. Junior forward Natalie Spooner led the Buckeyes’ 6-1 rout of St. Cloud State on Friday with four goals. The Buckeyes improved to 14-12-2 and 8-12-2-2 in conference play. The Huskies fell to 0-26-1. OSU returns home to face North Dakota at 7 p.m. Friday. Lavender, team get much-needed week off Even with 26 points from senior center Jantel Lavender and 18 from sophomore guard Tayler Hill, the Ohio State women’s basketball team (13-8, 4-5) couldn’t top Penn State on the road Sunday. The Lady Lions (18-5, 7-2) capitalized on the Buckeyes’ mistakes, gaining 20 points on 13 turnovers and picking up an 80-71 win. OSU trailed the entire game, unable to put together a successful run. The Buckeyes will host Northwestern at 5 p.m. Sunday.

I know a majority of the Ohio State fan base is composed of Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals fans. Just hear me out. It pains me to say it, but the NFL fan base most comparable to our Buckeyes’ is the AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers’. Sure, there are slight differences. For example, Buckeye fans don’t appease their fat gullets (quite as much) with greasy sandwiches that have 18 layers of french fries, a Pittsburgh staple. Watching the Steelers clinch their fourth Super Bowl appearance in my lifetime reminds me that I dislike them and their fans for the same exact reasons the rest of the nation dislikes Buckeye fans. The national perception of us Buckeyes is that we’re brash, we annoyingly span every corner of this great nation and, generally, no one likes us. Same with the Steelers. But, Buckeye and Steeler nations have every right to be as arrogant as we are. Over the past decade, no other sports team has been as successful, save for, arguably, the New England Patriots in the NFL. I might be a Cleveland fan, but my attitude is the exact opposite as an OSU fan. In Columbus, I’m not waiting for the other shoe to drop. The other shoe drops on the opposing team, especially once Big Ten play starts. OSU has won seven conference titles in the last 10 years. The Steelers are just off the pace, as far as division titles go. They’ve won six. Pittsburgh doesn’t quite measure up in that respect, but it can boast that its coaching stability is even more impressive than OSU’s. Over the last 40 years, the Steelers have had only three head coaches, compared to OSU’s four. Consider today’s constant coaching turnover in professional sports: The Oakland Raiders have had three coaches in the last four years alone, and they were one of seven NFL teams to switch coaches before the 2011 season. You can see similarities in the players, too. OSU’s star quarterback, Terrelle Pryor, sells off a few trophies, signs a few autographs and gets preferential treatment from a tattoo parlor. The Steelers’ star quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, signs a few autographs and gets preferential treatment from the police. Seriously, though, the tradition of sustained success is truly something to behold, no matter how much loathing the Steelers and Buckeyes face. Any hate directed at both most likely is intertwined with more than a hint of jealousy. The parallels are there, and it doesn’t make me any less of a Cleveland fan to admit it. It’s because, I know, during Super Bowl XLV, I’ll be the biggest Green Bay Packers fan this side of Brett Favre’s Mississippi. I won’t be alone. Most of America will be with me.

Report from 1B

Freshmen duo Aaron Craft and Deshaun Thomas make impact off bench Lauderdale plays 18.4 minutes per game and is often substituted out for Craft, forcing the team to rely on Sullinger to protect the paint. This hasn’t been a problem yet, but look for the issue to get magniÿed come tournament time. Rebounding: D Aside from Sullinger’s 9.9 rebounds per game, no one on the team is averaging more than freshman forward Deshaun Thomas’ 4.1 per game. During Matta’s tenure at OSU, his teams are 66-39 when outrebounded, making rebounding less important to his teams than perhaps some others. But it is something that should be looked at more closely. The team averages 35.1 rebounds per game, meaning it relies on Sullinger for a little less than a third of its games. He averages .324 rebounds per minute. Lauderdale, the rotation’s only other post player, averages 3.9 rebounds per game and only .212 per minute. The team needs more production on the glass from players not wearing No. 0 when the calendar ° ips to March. Bench Play: B Matta rarely uses more than two players off of his bench. Those two freshmen, Craft and Thomas, have been effective thus far. At 28 minutes per game, Craft is getting starter’s minutes while adding 6.8 points and 4.8 assists per game. His assist numbers and 1.7 steals per game lead both the Buckeyes and Big Ten freshmen. Although he’s continued to mature on the offensive end, his real work has been done defensively. Most notably, Craft did an

4B

excellent job defending Demetri McCamey in OSU’s win against Illinois on Jan. 22, holding the Illini’s leading scorer to ÿve points on 2-for-11 shooting. Thomas is still making the transition from being the best offensive player on his high school team to becoming more well-rounded and making contributions off the bench. “In high school, I had the green light since freshman year,” Thomas said Friday. “That came comfortable to me. … If I’m open, I’m going to try to shoot it.” The lanky southpaw is shooting 50.3 percent from the ÿeld, but only 27.9 percent from 3-point range. While those two freshmen are playing as well as — if not better than — expected off of Matta’s bench, it is asking a lot of his team only to use seven players. In a physically demanding conference, expect this to become a topic of discussion during the second half of conference play.

SPRING BREAK

Coaching: A Synonymous with coaching in Division I basketball is the ability to recruit, and this year’s freshman class is as good as any. Credit Matta for not only landing Sullinger, but Craft and Thomas as well. What’s often overlooked in sports is the mentality of a team sitting all alone at the top. It’s one thing to be talented; it’s another to maintain mental toughness. Matta has done an excellent job of keeping his team mentally prepared and away from all the hype and attention that comes with the nation’s No. 1 ranking. Tactically, Matta does well teaching fundamentals, especially on the defensive end. By doing so, his key players are able to avoid getting into foul trouble, which could be bothersome to a team that consistently plays the same seven players. He’s excelled at grooming his freshmen. By keeping Craft on the bench and out of the starting

lineup, Matta doesn’t over-rely on him because he’s the only true point guard in the rotation. Forcing him to watch the ÿrst few minutes of each game from the bench allows Craft to evaluate the game’s tempo, come into the game and adjust to it accordingly. Though there are numbers to evaluate players from every angle, there’s really only one needed to evaluate a coach at the college level: 22-0. Not bad at all.
