cowboys to tour italy, greece H alli e Hart e d i tor-in -c h ief @ halliehart

Before Michael Weathers makes his debut in an Oklahoma State game, he will leave the country for the first time. Weathers and the Cowboy basketball team are preparing for their European tour, which will take place in August. Although OSU will compete against international opponents, the Cowboys will have time to do some sightseeing when they’re not on the court. “I want to take my name to another level,” Weathers said. “Hopefully, I can do that out there and showcase what I’ve been doing last year and my freshman year, but also sightseeing … seeing a different country and exploring everything will be exciting for me.” The Cowboys will start the 10-day tour Aug. 4, departing Stillwater and reaching Venice, Italy, the next day. Before they play in their first game Aug. 7, they will go on Venetian gondola rides. Aug. 8, a high-speed train will take the Cowboys to Rome, Italy. There, they will visit the historic Roman Colosseum and the Pantheon, which was once a Roman temple. The Cowboys will then fly to Athens, Greece, where they will stop at the Acropolis and the Parthenon. Thomas Dziagwa, a junior guard from Temple Terrace, Florida, said he most looks forward to touring Greece, and it’s partially because of a book series. Dziagwa said the Percy Jackson novels, which revolve around a character who is half WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 2018

Greek god, are his favorites. “I’m a big Greek mythology guy,” Dziagwa said. Although Dziagwa wants to enjoy the Greek history, he has no intentions of trying authentic Italian pasta. “I’m gonna stick with the seafood,” Dziagwa said. “I’m gonna have to compare it to Florida, but I’m very intrigued to see how the seafood is over there, that’s for sure.” It’s all part of Dziagwa’s plan to follow his diet and ensure he is in shape for basketball season. Along with training, the Cowboys are learning to mesh as a team, but that doesn’t keep them from engaging in friendly rivalry off the court. Dziagwa said he and his teammates are playing NBA 2K and pool. “Right now, I’m currently the best on the team at pool,” Dziagwa said. “Make sure I throw that out there for the guys to raise a little competition out there.” Weathers, a redshirt sophomore guard, said the team chemistry is already good,

but the European tour will make the Cowboys closer. In the midst of new people and languages, they will have familiarity with each other, he recognized. The upcoming trip to Europe is OSU basketball’s second foreign tour. In the Cowboys’ first international tour, they went to Spain in 2012. Every four years, each NCAA basketball program has the chance to play outside the United States. And when Weathers sets foot in Italy, he knows where he wants to go. “I heard they have a lot of Gucci stores out there, so I want to buy some of the real Gucci,” Weathers said. “I really want to have some Gucci slides and a Gucci belt. And maybe even a scarf so I’ll come back fresh to death.”

cowboys build team dynamic early with european tour practices H allie Hart E di tor-in -C h ief @ha lliehart

As Thomas Dziagwa answers questions from his freshman teammates, he returns to not-so-distant memories of when he stood in their place. Because the Oklahoma State basketball team has no four-year seniors on its roster, leadership roles fall on players such as Dziagwa, a junior guard. “It feels like I was a freshman the other day,” Dziagwa said. “It’s a complete 180, that’s for sure.” Although the Cowboys are young, they’re taking advantage of opportunities to improve their techniques and team chemistry long before basketball season starts. They will go on a 10day European tour in August. OSU is set to play against opponents from around the world and engage in teambuilding and learning activities. Mike Boynton, the Cowboys’ coach, didn’t delay preparation, quickly bringing his “Let’s work” mentality back to Gallagher-Iba Arena. July 1, OSU held its first practice for the European tour. From that point, Boynton ensured the freshmen were involved. Boynton said he wants them to make mistakes at summer practice. He doesn’t create the illusion that anything is perfect. The Cowboys WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 2018

continue to sport shorts with the word “DEFENSE” printed boldly on the back, but Boynton said the defense doesn’t look good yet. New team members, unsure where to go, sometimes stumble into each other on the court. Boynton called those moments “bumper cars accidents,” acknowledging that they have to happen. “I think they learn better by going out there and figuring it out,” Boynton said. “We’ll try to guide them.” Last season when Boynton entered his first year as OSU’s head coach, he led a group of mostly experienced players. Boynton used terms such as “our rock” and “the MVP” to describe then-senior Mitchell Solomon. Before conference play started, Zack Dawson, the lone freshman, was dismissed from the program after an earlier suspension for “failure to meet team standards.” This season will provide a sharp contrast. New faces make up the majority of OSU’s squad. Although Mike Cunningham is an experienced basketball player, he has never competed in a Cowboy uniform, as he is a graduate transfer from University of South Carolina-Upstate. OSU’s roster includes five scholarship freshmen: Kentrevious Jones, Maurice Calloo, Duncan Demuth, Isaac Likekele

and Yor Anei. “You throw them in the water, but you do a lot more teaching,” Boynton said. “We need a couple of these guys to help us this year if we’re gonna have the type of season we want to have, so we gotta get them out there and let them screw up a bunch of times and learn through their mistakes.” As the freshmen acclimate to playing at the collegiate level, Boynton said guidance from the few upperclassmen is invaluable. Dziagwa is taking his increased responsibility seriously. He said he arrived in Stillwater a week early to start summer workouts with

Jake Manzelmann, the Cowboys’ strength and conditioning coach. He is also learning from Dre Denbow, the video coordinator. Dziagwa said instead of going home to Temple Terrace, Florida, before school starts, he’s staying in Stillwater to continue training. “A lot of teams use the nonconference (games) to get going,” Dziagwa said. “I think we’re using right now. We’re already hitting the floor running.” Boynton said Dziagwa, whose father is a basketball coach at Tampa Catholic High School, is helpful because of his lifelong familiarity with the game. Dziagwa is one of four


juniors who has been on OSU’s roster since his freshman season. Cameron McGriff, a junior forward, displayed natural leadership even as an underclassman, Boynton said. Boynton mentioned how Lindy Waters, a junior guard, is quieter than McGriff, but his effort speaks loudly. “(Waters is) very responsible in terms of his assignments, so he’s a good guy for people to watch and kind of emulate,” Boynton said. Trey Reeves, a junior forward and son of former OSU basketball star Bryant “Big Country” Reeves, rounds out the group of returning upperclassmen. The Cowboys’ roster also includes two guards who were formerly limited to the sidelines during games. Because of transfer rules, Michael Weathers sat out the 2017-18 season, but he is eligible to play this upcoming season. Curtis Jones, a transfer from Indiana, will be eligible after the fall semester. Weathers, a redshirt sophomore, previously played for Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where he earned MidAmerican Conference Freshman Player of the Year honors. “Watching last year, I think … it really helped my game slow down to another level,” Weathers said. “I see the game differently. The college

game’s a really fastpaced game, so for freshmen, I know it’s really fast right now.” July 3, after the Cowboys’ second practice for the European tour, Weathers said it was more intense than the practice two days earlier. “I just have to bring the energy every day as a point guard,” Weathers said. “You have to be able to push each other and push the next guy to get them better to where they want to be.” Instead of suddenly pushing the Cowboys, Boynton spaced 10 practices throughout the weeks leading to the European tour. On Aug. 4, they will leave Stillwater and head to Venice, Italy. Three days after departure from the United States, OSU will appear in its first of three, possibly four, games. Months before the season starts, the Cowboys can build teamwork in a game setting, and Dziagwa expressed gratitude for that. “I think it’s gonna help tremendously,” Dziagwa said. “Not only on the court but I think it’s gonna help our chemistry off the court. It’s a team sport, so I think the chemistry overall is just gonna really skyrocket after this trip.” Hallie Hart is a sports media junior from Chandler. She can be reached at hallie.hart@ PAGE 3

barbara allen


o’colly adviser to become poynter’s managing editor j e r e my ko lok s ta ff r epo rt er @ Je r em ykolok

On Oct. 23, 2013, the O’Colly published an article noting the death of Jack Lancaster, a former longtime adviser for the student-run publication. Barbara Allen, his successor and the O’Colly’s adviser at the time, wrote it. In that article, she wrote from the heart, as she was writing about her adviser from when she attended OSU and worked for the Daily O’Collegian. When Lancaster died, the O’Colly editors at the time asked Allen to write a column about him, and she immediately refused. She began listing reasons as to why she was unworthy of writing a column about her mentor, eventually forming a beautifullywritten article. The article concludes with her seventh reason. “I can’t write this column because to do so would be to admit to my students, my family, my friends and all of OSU that I’m no Jack. Hell, I’d be a wild success if I had a quarter of his thoughtfulness, accessibility or his willingness to let students make their own mistakes.” The fact of the matter is, she was right. She is no Jack. But she is Bob, the ever-so-fitting name that she demanded to be called. If you dared to WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 2018

call her Barb, there would almost certainly be consequences. Ever-so-eloquently, Allen perfectly assumed the role she was hired to fill nearly 10 years ago. She worked tirelessly to ensure that once students leave the O’Colly, they reach their maximum potential in life. Now, after a decade of helping numerous students follow their dreams, it is time for her to move on and chase her own. Allen will assume the position of managing editor for Poynter, a global leader in journalism based out of St. Petersburg, Florida, effective July 16. When we were young journalism students experiencing our daunting approach to the O’Colly newsroom in our first week or two on campus, Allen’s combination of humor and delight made us feel more welcome than an Elvis impersonator in Las Vegas. She was always accessible as we christened our relationships with our new colleagues and with her. She was supportive as we molded our journalism styles and dared us to test the boundaries of our own creative spectrum. And more importantly than anything, she understood that college is a time to learn. She always gave her students the freedom to explore, make mistakes and make corrections. Allen was never quick to lecture, though. She

wasn’t the mom of the O’Colly. She’s simply too cool to be called that (though her daughter probably calls her that). She was like the O’Colly’s crazy aunt who would set off the fire alarm with a popcorn machine in the middle of the afternoon and encourage us to take risks, have fun and be ourselves. She dared not ever make decisions for her students but rather en-

gaged in discussions to poke at ideas and help us make decisions on our own. The O’Colly umbrella runs far and wide, with alumni trickled throughout the country from coast to coast. And if you ask most of them how they would describe Allen, every single one would likely have good things to say. The care that Allen had — and will continue to have — for her students goes much beyond a

simple job title. And the truest testaments to that statement are the reviews from her former students. “Bob constantly pushed me and my peers to be the best we could be. She was a sounding board, a mentor and, often, a friend. This is a terrible loss for the O’Colly and OSU, but a tremendous and deserved opportunity for her and one in which I know she’ll continue to impact other journalists the way she impacted me. I would not be where I am without her.” - Nathan Ruiz, The Oklahoman “Entering college can be a strange time. You’re not sure what you want to do or where you belong. Or even if you are sure of your dreams and goals, you’re not always sure how to get there. Sometimes all it takes is one person to believe in you or inspire you. For me, that person was Barbara Allen. For all her great traits as O’Colly adviser, her biggest strength was the fact she believed in people and helped teach them to believe in themselves. For me, that made an immense difference as an OSU freshman, then later as a sophomore, junior, senior and even as an alum.” - Cody Stavenhagen, The Athletic


O’Colly File Photo

Barbara Allen will step down as the O’Colly’s adviser and the OSU Director of Student Media and will work as Poynter’s managing editor.

“When I first started working for the O’Colly, I was afraid to talk to people. As a teacher, adviser and friend, Barbara Allen has not only helped me overcome that but also made me be a journalist I never thought I could be when I walked onto campus.” - Jordan Bishop, Stillwater News Press “She has been there for us in our hardest times and our best times in student media, and we’re all better because of it. The same traits that got her her the new job clearly rubbed off on the students she has been adviser for over the years and have helped her leave OSU Student Media better than she found it.” - Kurt Steiss, Toledo Blade

Without Allen’s cheerful presence, the newsroom atmosphere in the basement of the Paul Miller Journalism and Broadcasting building will not be the same. We’ll miss her tremendously. All we can ask is that the next occupant of the hidden-away adviser office will keep his or her door open for us the way Allen did. The new adviser has big shoes to fill, but if that person shows just a fraction of the support and guidance Allen showed us, we’ll be just fine.

exterior of osu’s Mcknight center nears completion A dam luther S taff R epo rt er @ oco lly

A new performance hall on Oklahoma State University’s campus remains set for its target completion date. Exterior construction on the McKnight Center for the Performing Arts is on track to finish this summer. The building is scheduled to open in October 2019. OSU’s information and renderings show that the center includes a 1,100-seat concert hall and a 222-seat recital hall. The university’s music school will use the venue for classes and performances while also bringing in artists and groups from around the world to perform. Ground broke on the 93,000-square-foot building in October 2016. At the time, OSU President Burns Hargis said elevating the arts at the university had been a long-term goal of his. The center will open with a performance from the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. The performance will be the orchestra’s first in Oklahoma in more than 30 years. The Philharmonic will appear courtesy of the McKnight Center’s programming endowment. A $25 million donation from Billie and Ross McKnight, the center’s namesakes, established the fund.

OSU’s McKnight Center for the Performing Arts, a 93,000square-foot building, is set to open in October 2019.

tra and OSU’s Greenwood School of Music agreed to a residency program, which will allow OSU students and faculty to interact with members of the Philharmonic. The residency will include educational opportunities such as lectures, audition workshops and master classes. Joseph Missal, OSU’s director of bands, said the endowment and the facility will make his job easier. “The endowment will bring in amazing artists from around the world to inspire and motivate our students to reach their career goals,” Missal said. “Having the concert hall and recital hall will give our students the flexibility to make music in a venue appropriate for each genre.” Thomas Lanners, a professor of piano at the school, said he believes the center will attract more students to the program.

“The residencies of the New York Philharmonic and the annual McKnight chamber are invaluable selling points for prospective students who are seeking world-class training and a vital cosmopolitan musical environment,” Lanners said. Heidi Kelly, a spokesperson for the McKnight Center, said individual and corporate donations are funding the building’s projected $50 million cost. Along with the McKnights’ $25 million donation, Carl and Marilynn Thoma gave $5 million to establish the executive director position at the center. The McKnight Center is on the southwest corner of University Avenue and Hester Street. Adam Luther is a sports media senior from Lincoln, Rhode Island.

‘the first purge’ offers social message, might miss its mark

Platinum Dunes/Blumhouse Productions

Lex Scott Davis stars as Nya in horror film “The First Purge.”

ta e lor co n n el l staff reporter @taemconnell

“The First Purge” not only serves up a dose of fantasized horror but also offers a dose of reality. The movie is designed to send a political message that suggests the government in the WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 2018

movie systematically keeps certain classes of people down. The message coincides with problems Americans face in society today. Although fans can appreciate the social message the movie is conveying, it did not meet the high expectations the previous movies supplied.

Some of the scares fell flat and left the audience cold but not from fear. “The First Purge” examines the origin of the controversial experiment that takes place on Staten Island, New York. The government decides to conduct this experiment limited to that area to see first if it will work before it expands the Purge nationwide. All crime, including murder, is legalized for 12 continuous hours. The government enacts this experiment after crime rates rose and other problems in society started occurring. Not all residents of the area were required to stay for the experiment. It was voluntary, and those who chose to stay were offered a significant monetary

award. Controversy arises several days leading up to the Purge because it seems like the government is targeting a low socioeconomic area. Therefore, residents feel obligated to participate for money. The protesters agree that fewer people would participate if they were not so impoverished. More disagreement surfaces after the government seems to target multiple people. Many believe the experiment is a political device to get rid of lower-income families and minorities. After the government sends in people to pose as participants, it becomes apparent that the government is trying to kill off a specific group of Americans. As ten-


sion rises, the government begins formulating a plan to cover it up. Those determined to unmask the truth and fight for their lives are local protester Nya (Lex Scott Davis) and drug king Dmitri (Y’lan Noel). The movie takes us through the opposite ends of their experiences as Nya runs away from the events and Dmitri runs toward the fight. After multiple good people in the neighborhood die, it seems like the responsibility to keep the community people alive rests on Dmitri’s shoulders. Instead of causing problems in the neighborhood, he is determined to fix it for once. Dmitri, a man Nya resents, might prove himself to

be a man she can trust. For viewers already familiar with the controversial experiment from past movies, the movie does not offer any new scares. Although it’s not as scary as past films from the franchise, it offers an interesting twist on societal problems and attempts to expose the government for its failures. If viewers go for the scares, they might be disappointed, but some might be surprised to find that they leave the theater with a lot more to think about than they anticipated.
