Tech students killed in Sunday morning crash Two men were pronounced dead at the scene of a car accident at 1:40 a.m. Sunday at 1600 Kent St. Brian Jeffries, 22, was driving a 2005 Chevrolet Classic with Tech student Spencer Brown, 21, down the 1500 block of Kent St. at an unsafe speed while crossing railroad tracks, the accident report stated. As the vehicle crossed the railroad tracks, it became airborne and vaulted over Avenue Q. According to the report, once the vehicle hit the ground, it continued traveling west until Jeffries drove the vehicle off the south side of the road, becoming airborne and hitting two poles in the process. The report stated Brown was ejected from the vehicle and was not wearing a seatbelt, whereas Jeffries was. It was unclear whether alcohol or drugs were involved. Approximately 50 minutes after the accident, the scene was discovered by a passer-by, the report stated. An investigation by the police department is ongoing. ➤➤

2nd major snowstorm paralyzes parts of Midwest KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — For the second time in a week, a major winter storm paralyzed parts of the nation’s midsection Tuesday, dumping a fresh layer of heavy, wet snow atop cities still choked with piles from the previous system and making travel perilous from the Oklahoma panhandle to the Great Lakes. The weight of the snow strained power lines and cut electricity to more than 100,000 homes and businesses. At least three deaths were blamed on the blizzard.

Student Government hosts debate for election By MATT DOTRAY STAFF WRITER

Student Government Association candidates discussed their goals, if elected, during last night’s executive candidate forum. The purpose of the forum was to inform the students about each candidate prior to voting, which begins today. At the forum, candidates gave their introductions, then answered questions from the panel and the audience. Candidates for internal vice president, who serves as the president of the Student Senate and works with student organizations, debated first. Taylor Weeks, a junior political science major from Houston, and Jill Berger, a junior marketing major, are the two candidates for the position. One of the questions directed toward the candidates involved the lack of activity by current senators. Berger said one of the reasons senators have not been doing their jobs to the fullest is because of the lack of knowledge about the rules. If elected, she said she would create an event that involves senators coming together, once a month, in order to discuss how to write legislation

The Texas Tech women’s basketball team looks for another win as they take on No. 22 Oklahoma State (19-7, 8-7) at 7 p.m. today in United Spirit Arena. The Lady Raiders’ (20-7, 10-5 in Big 12 Conference play) energy has elevated after beating Kansas State. The team is now tied for second in the Big 12 standings. “Everybody has a little bit more smile,” Tech coach Kristy Curry said. “Their corners of their mouth are turned up a bit more. There is more pop in everybody’s step.” Curry said she has seen what the team has created with wins and knows the Lady Raiders have gained more confidence as they continue to play each game. “Momentum is important in this league,” she said. “There is no doubt about it. Momentum is always important.” Curry said she knows winning makes

things easier for the Lady Raiders and that the team still has to work hard to finish what it has started. “That is contagious when things are going well,” she said. “It is a lot easier every day. At the same time, you have to bring the same work ethic. We have to continue to challenge our team to improve and get better. We feel like, as a staff, we are doing that.” As the Lady Raiders prepare to take on Oklahoma State, Curry said she knows what the Lady Raiders have to look for and expects to see some urgency from Oklahoma State. “You catch them on a good day — makes them as good a team as anyone in this league,” Curry said. “Their consistency is what they’ve really struggled with a little bit, but I expect a sense of urgency. They are going to bring their best shot tomorrow night.” BASKETBALL continued on Page 7 ➤➤

colleges to talk to students. “I want to make sure they are engaged with their colleges,” Berger said. “Talking to students, writing effective pieces because the more engaged you are and

THE WEST BASEMENT of the Administration building is being turned into a student lounge for the Graduate Student Advisory Council.

GSAC begins graduate lounge construction By CAROLYN HECK STAFF WRITER

The Graduate Student Advisory Council has started construction on a graduate student lounge located in the west basement of the Administration building. There is no set date for completion of the lounge, but the council would like construction to be finished by or before summer, said Krystle Kelley, a GSAC member and anthropology graduate student from Austin. “The interior design students are going to be working on it this semester,” she said, “working on the designs and some plans for the space. And then hopefully we can have it running, I mean, preferably yesterday. So as soon as possible.” The main purpose for the lounge is to give graduate students a place to go to relax, study, socialize and host events, said Andleeb Mazhar, a GSAC member and environmental design graduate student from Pakistan. She said she wants students to consider it a home away from home. “They don’t have any place exclusively for graduate students,” Mazhar said, “so this would be their own place where they can express themselves or just relax themselves.” One factor she said she wants to stress about the space is that it should feel removed and informal. “Psychologically,” Mazhar said, “I

think it’s very healthy to have a place for students where it’s a different environment that’s not a classroom to meet. Like meeting at Starbucks is so popular among the students. Why? Because everybody is relaxed there.” While the members of the council have their own ideas on what should be done with the space, Kelley said it is important to give the students a voice. “We’re going to get the input of other graduate students on constructing this place,” she said, “so we’re not just going to do it based off of our own ideas. But we wanted to get input from all of the graduate students and see what they specifically want.” Some of the ideas the council has come up with for the lounge include a computer lab, a kitchen, conference rooms, book carousels and lounges with televisions and bean bag chairs, Kelley said, but the students have final say. Interior design students like Nizar Haddad, an environmental design graduate student from Jordan, have been brought in to conduct a survey to gather information on what graduate students would like to see most in their new lounge. The designers also are taking stock of the space to see how it can best be used. Both the survey and the completed floor plan propositions are to be submitted by March 28 for approval.

One setback the council and designers face is that the Administration building officials have not allowed any altering of the walls or ceilings, Haddad said. Another problem is that the space, as well as much of the Administration building, is not handicapped-accessible, something Kelley said the GSAC is looking to fix as part of its long term goals. The council also is debating the issue of whether or not to allow graduate students’ children into the lounge. “And I know a lot of grad students use the daycare facil-

Weeks also said it was important to make sure senators are contacting their students. Weeks also said she is part of the rules and administration committee, and in general, the absence policy is the way it should be. The problem is that the punishment system SGA has in place is not working, she said. “As far as motivating the senators,” she said, “I think instead of punishing our senators for not doing office hours and not doing other things like that, we should motivate our senators. We should have a more rewards-based system. Right now, changing the office hours is crucial.” With a rewards based system, Weeks said the senators would be working to better themselves and their constituents instead of working to just not be punished. After the internal vice presidents, the candidates for external vice president discussed their goals. According to the SGA website,

ity that’s just across the street,” Kelley said, “and so if they had a break during the day, and wanted to get their kid and bring them down here and have lunch with them, they could do that.” But not all graduate students would want to have children there, the council argued, either because they might disrupt the calm environment, there would be no supervision for the children, or because having children there would necessitate more rules and regulations to keep them safe. However, Kelley said, this is just another issue to put to vote. “All of the graduate students together will be able to answer this question,” she said, “and if a majority of them say, ‘No kids

in our space’, then we won’t have any.” Funding for the graduate student lounge comes from the GSAC budget, said Jacek Jasinski, the director of graduate student life. The GSAC budget is funded by student fees and donations from Juan Sanchez Munoz, vice provost for Undergraduate Education and vice president for Institutional Diversity Equity, and Community Engagement. Munoz donated $20,000 for the fiscal year of 2013, Jasinski said, and GSAC is using up to $5,000 of that on the construction of the lounge. Munoz has dedicated another $15,000 toward the center for the next fiscal year. While Jasinski is unsure

of how much they will use out of the $15,000, he said GSAC is looking for additional sources of funding as well. Garrett Mohr, a biochemistry graduate student from Kansas City, Mo., said he hopes if officials see the lounge as a success, the GSAC council will receive more funding and a better space. “I think they want to see how many people use it, how many people actually see it as a need,” he said. “I think if they start seeing more and more graduate students use it, and this need starts to become talked about more and more by graduate students, maybe they’ll start to say, ‘Well, maybe we should look into this.’”

the major responsibility of the external vice president is to serve as the liaison between Tech students and the City of Lubbock. At the forum, the majority of the questions involved transportation, which includes bus and bike lanes. The candidates for external vice president are Logan Dickenson, a junior civil engineering major from Abilene, and Peyton Craig, a sophomore political science major from Houston. One of the concerns both candidates addressed was the students’ use of Safe Rides, buses that run at night on weekends. Dickenson said one way to better the bus routes is to bring in a specialist. As external vice president, he said he also would try to extend bus hours and make them go to Tech Terrace, a heavily populated neighborhood. “We need to bring in a specialist,” he said. “We need to have him reroute our routes and figure out a more efficient way to do them with the same amount of money. And I think it’s possible. We can make different drop zones and different pickup zones. Make a better schedule.” To promote Safe Ride, he said making bus maps accessible and promoting

the buses on different social media websites would be effective. Along with making buses more acceptable, Craig said he would like to push students to bike and walk more often. In order to increase the number of students who use the Safe Ride buses, he said SGA needs to better educate the students, while improving the buses. “If elected on Friday,” Craig said, “the following week, I’ll start meeting with people who are in charge of these positions. Start meeting with people who know what they’re talking about, and also meeting with students.” As far as changing the bus routes, he said he will meet with students to decide whether or not it needs to happen. After the external vice president candidates, Daniel Yates, the only student running for graduate vice president, said his ultimate goal is to make Tech a better place for graduate students. He said his experience with the current graduate vice president has helped him understand the needs of graduate students. Presidential candidates for SGA were the last group to debate. Presidential candidates comprised Jose Barraza,

a junior political science major form Houston, Luke Cotton, an energy commerce major from League City, and Forrest Stovall, a senior technical communication major from San Antonio. According to the SGA website, the responsibilities of president include assisting the recruiting efforts of Tech and acting as the communicator between the students and the administrators. One of the questions at the debate was how each candidate would make sure the administrators know what the students’ interests are, especially as the university continues to increase the size of enrollment. Cotton said one of his ways to make sure the students are heard is to host pizza with the president, where students can come and talk to the executive branch about their interests. “The best way to go communicate something to someone is face-to-face interaction,” he said. “TechAnnounce is nice, and emails are nice, but going out and actually letting people know, ‘Hey, here’s what we have going on. What do you think about it?’ That’s the best way.” To understand what the interests of the students are, Barraza said he will meet individually with every organization and make sure every student, not just members of SGA, have a say of what takes place on campus. One of the ways to make sure the students get a voice, he said, is to make them more involved. “The students are the whole reason why the university is here,” he said. “If we actually carried the voice of the students completely, if we represented the whole students and the students were begin us, the administration would have to listen to us.” To get a better opinion of the students, Stovall said will go out and speak with the organizations, as well as talking to students in the Free Speech Area. The way SGA is set up works, he said, but he will make it more effective. “I think that the Student Government Association should be a place that, whenever you come and approach us,” he said, “that we will take your concerns seriously and take action on them.” At Tech, the administration makes a lot of the decisions, Stovall said, and it is important for them to know the opinions of the students. For more information on the candidates, students are encouraged to visit their office on the second floor of the SUB.

Students make own version of Harlem Shake videos By ASHLYN TUBBS STAFF WRITER

Donald “Donny” Ohakam and six other friends knew they needed to stun their audience with an atypical format to make their Harlem Shake video become viral. Now, Ohakam is trying not to develop a big head with the fame it has brought him, he said. “Mostly, I can’t help to smile at the success of the video,” he said, “and the video’s formula.” On Feb 13, Ohakam and his friends attached an iPhone 5 to a tripod and released their video on Valentine’s Day titled “Harlem Shake (Mayonnaise Edition).” Ohakam said two characters in general have made the video so popular. “We figured a well-built, random black cowboy in addition to a girl sitting in the corner eating mayonnaise would achieve just that,” he said. “We did this while staying faithful to the typical format: the 30-second run time, someone wearing a costume (in this case a horse head) and cutting to a completely bizarre setting.” Ohakam, a senior electronic media and communication major from Arlington, joined the video

cast after he was asked by Joe Gardner, a Spanish major, who said Ohakam would be the key ingredient. “No one would expect a huge, muscular black guy to pop out of nowhere dancing while giving the camera a menacing look,” Ohakam said. “Although it was the mayonnaise girl named Wendy that really made the video.” One part of the video is a bit deceiving, Ohakam said. “That wasn’t really mayonnaise,” he said. “We emptied it out and put in whipped cream.” The inspiration to record this video came from the official Texas Tech Harlem Shake Video, Ohakam said, as well as other Tech editions posted on YouTube. “We wanted ours to be the Harlem Shake of Tech,” he said, “which I believe might become it due to the negative reception of Texas Tech’s Harlem Shake video.” The mayonnaise edition video is more popular than Ohakam expected, he said. He initially expected to receive 500 views for the video, but now admits he underestimated. “We reached over 33,000 views in less than two weeks,” he said. “I expect over 100,000 views by the end of March.”

Although Ohakam and his friends appear to have fun during the video, he said it became tedious because they could not stop laughing. “We had to reshoot so many times because we could not keep a straight face, and if anyone doesn’t know, making a Harlem Shake video is extremely exhausting,” he said. “I was literally covered in sweat and felt more tired than any workout I had ever did. For a 30-second video, you really probably dance for a solid five minutes and go in and take the best footage to piece together your video.” Other Tech students who have felt this pain are Kaylee Adds, a sophomore nursing major from Rowlett, and McLain Grant, a sophomore nursing major from Wylie. On Friday, during a girls’ night, these girls and three other girl friends made their own version of the Harlem Shake video. “We were watching a bunch of the videos during a girls’ night, and we got really bored,” Adds said, “and decided to make one of our own.” They shot the video in two takes, Adds said, which did not take long, then edited the footage in slow motion. Instead of uploading it to YouTube, they decided to

upload it to Facebook and it now has more than 100 likes. “I’ve had a lot of people come up to me saying it was really funny,” she said, “and mainly just comments about our friend that fell off the chair, which was not planned.” Their Harlem Shake video is unique because only girls are in the video, Grant said. “There were no boys involved, so we just look crazy doing it,” she said. “It was a fun girls’ night.” The Harlem Shake video craze began as not very publicized, then blew up in popularity, Grant said. “Everyone started making videos, and when we made the video it was funny, but I feel like its dying down slowly but surely,” she said. “It’s like every other phase: there’s like a huge hype about it and then something new comes along.” For Ohakam, something new coming along for him is beginning a YouTube personality, starring him and Gardner. “We want to call ourselves ‘Black and Yellow’ using the song from Wiz Khalifa as our main theme song,” he said, “and also at the joke that you have a big black guy and an Asian guy half his size making random, bizarre videos.” ➤➤

For 1st time since 1999, music revenues inch up


LONDON (AP) — More than a decade after online file swapping tipped the music industry into turmoil, record executives may finally be getting a sliver of good news. Industry revenue is up. A measly 0.3 percent, but it’s still up. “We’re on the path to recovery,” said Frances Moore, whose International Federation of the Phonographic Industry put together the figures released in a report Tuesday. “There’s a palpable

buzz in the air.” In her forward to the IFPI report, Moore said the return to growth was a tribute to the transformation of the music industry, saying it had “adapted to the Internet world.” That change has been a long time coming. Online song sharing popularized by services such as Napster at the turn of the millennium seriously destabilized the industry, which reacted with a barrage of lawsuits and lobbying.

Agent describes grisly cannibal talk at NY trial NEW YORK (AP) — The trial of a New York police officer accused of conspiring to kill and eat women featured grisly testimony Tuesday as an FBI agent described the Internet correspondence between the officer and a man in Great Britain who spoke as if he were mentoring the officer on the art of cannibalism. Agent Corey Walsh read passage after passage from emails and text messages between Officer Gilberto Valle and a man the government said used Moody Blues as a screen name and MeatMarketMan

as an email address. “I’m dying to taste some girl meat,” the agent said Valle wrote. Some of the passages went into sickening descriptions about cooking and eating women. Others sounded so absurd they bordered on cartoonish, feeding the defense argument that Valle and friends he met on extreme sexual fetish websites were merely engaging in fantasies. In describing one potential victim, Moody Blues suggested “cutting off her feet and barbecuing them in front of her” while she

was still alive. Throughout, jurors remained stone-faced as they followed the words on screens before them while Walsh read them aloud in a federal courthouse in Manhattan, where the charges of conspiracy to kidnap and improper use of a federal database system could bring Valle, 28, a life sentence if he’s convicted. The government called several women who were the subjects of some of the Internet correspondence to testify how they knew Valle just before Walsh took the witness stand.

This year’s Oscars was the most entertaining I have ever watched. Granted, I have not been able to sit through many of the other Oscars in previous years. The saving grace of this year’s Oscars may have been its “Music in Film” theme. Last year, they completely nixed musical performances. That may be partly why I was bored to tears. Seth MacFarlane hosted the 2013 Academy Awards. Some may have found him inappropriate, but I found him entertaining. MacFarlane created “Family Guy,” “The Cleveland Show” and “American Dad”. He also wrote and directed “Ted”. If you’ve watched any of these, you would know an inappropriate joke here and there was to be expected. In his opening speech, MacFarlane shows a video to a song titled, “We Saw Your Boobs.” In it, he sang about all the actresses who have given us a full frontal in their movies. To make up for it, he sang “The Way You Look Tonight” with Channing Tatum and Charlize Theron dancing in the background. He also sang and danced to “High Hopes,” with the help of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Daniel Radcliffe (both of whom have performed on Broadway). MacFarlane made some jokes about “Django Unchained” that some people just didn’t seem to know whether to laugh at or not. “This is the story of a man fighting to get back his woman, who’s been subjected to unthinkable violence.

As a first-year student, I have not officially declared my major, but I have certainly declared it to myself, countless times. One day I am an English major and another I am government. One week I want to be an economics minor,

Again, everyone was unsure of whether or not they should laugh. I found them all hilarious. But then again, I enjoy “American Dad” and “Family Guy” re-runs. The musical performances throughout the show kept the production alive. MacFarlane’s performances — with the help of a few talented actors — were good beginnings. After a James Bond 50th anniversary film and music tribute, Shirley Bassey performed “Goldfinger.” The 1964 Bond theme song launched Bassey’s international career, according to John Travolta introduced the Oscars’ musicals tribute. Catherine Zeta-Jones began the tribute by performing “All that Jazz,” from the film, “Chicago.” Jennifer Hudson then brought down the house with her powerful belting of “And I am Telling You,” from the 2006 film adaptation of the Broadway play, “Dreamgirls.” The musicals tribute ended with the “Les Miserables” cast. It began with Hugh

Jackman singing “I Dreamed a Dream.” Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Russell Crowe and many other cast members joined Jackman. The performance literally gave me chills. The film was nominated for eight awards, so it only made sense for it to be honored, also. For the “In Memorium” portion of the awards show, Barbara Streisand sang “The Way We Were.” The song won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 1974, according to the Huffington Post. My favorite moment came when Adele graced the stage. For the first time, she performed “Skyfall,” the title track for the James Bond film with the same name. Adele went on to win the Oscar for Best Original Song for “Skyfall” with co-writer Paul Epworth, according to The Guardian. Adele also won a Golden Globe in this section for the song earlier this year. In 2013, Adele already has a Golden Globe, Grammy and Oscar under her belt. I’d like to point out that she is only 24. (Re-evaluate your life.) In my opinion, there weren’t many major upsets at this year’s Oscars. Then again, I might just be an expert at predictions. Quentin Tarantino had already won Best Writing — Original Screenplay for “Django Unchained” at the Golden Globes. He won the Oscar for the movie, also. Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence were favorites for Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress, respectively. The only shocking things about their winnings

were Anne Hathaway’s nipples staring at us through her dress and Jennifer Lawrence’s tumble trying to get up the stairs. Christoph Waltz won Best Supporting Actor for “Django Unchained.” While I was impressed by his performance in the film, I believe Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio deserved recognition, also. Waltz’s character was integral to the movie. However, Jackson’s and DiCaprio’s characters were admittedly harder to portray. Although Waltz was deserving of his award, I find it baffling how the Academy can continually snub an actor like Leonardo DiCaprio. Daniel Day-Lewis won Best Actor in a Leading Role. Shocker. As long as he was nominated, no one else had a chance. The biggest upset for me was in “Argo” winning Best Picture. I know it was a great film, I just predicted the Oscar would go to “Les Miserables,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Lincoln,” or even “Life of Pi,” which grabbed four Oscars. Ultimately, this year’s Oscars was impressing. I’m a lover of musicals and soundtracks. The music theme and MacFarlane’s comedic hosting made the night for me. The Oscars always havebeen so stuffy for me in the past. I hope they keep making them as entertaining it was this year.

Tech women’s golf finds success at tournament By JORDON LEGENDRE STAFF WRITER

The Texas Tech women’s golf team finished two strokes under par for a five-stroke victory at the Westbrook Spring College Invitational on Monday. “We played great,” Tech coach JoJo Robertson said. “This is probably the best we’ve ever seen them play. To shoot 11-under in college golf is pretty impressive.” The Lady Raiders entered the final day of the event nine strokes over par and two behind Arkansas, but Tech’s final round 11-under-par 277 was enough to secure victory. Ranked No. 13 in the country by GolfWeek, the Lady Raiders were the only team to finish the event under par. No. 7 Arkansas finished second at 3-over-par. No. 9 Washington

finished 10-over-par to claim third place, while the host of the tournament, Wisconsin, finished in a tie for eighth. Robertson said the team believed they could win going into the final round but were more focused on personal improvement. “I think more than anything,” she said, “they all wanted to go out and play the best that they could individually. We knew this was a golf course that was very playable, and the final day had perfect conditions for scoring. I think each player wanted to take care of their individual goal that they had that week, and they all did.” Kimberly Kaufman, who is ranked No. 1 in the GolfWeek individual rankings, led the scoring for Tech during the final round with a six-under-par 66. Kaufman bogeyed the 156-yard par-3 fourth hole before

White Sox top Rangers SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — Yu Darvish is more at ease in his second spring with the Texas Rangers, and he is still throwing hard. The Japanese ace, who won 16 games last season as a major league rookie, struck out two while retiring all six White Sox he faced in his first spring start. Chicago then scored 11 runs over the next two innings on the way to a 14-8 victory Tuesday. “His velocity was up, his stuff was just better,” said new Rangers catcher A.J. Pierzynski, who faced his former team while catching Darvish. “He threw the ball really well and it was very encouraging to see. We talked in the bullpen and talked before the game about what he wanted to accomplish, and he accomplished everything that he

wanted to and needed to.” Pierzynski, who spent his last eight seasons in Chicago before signing a one-year deal with Texas, had previously worked with the 26-year-old Darvish during an intrasquad game last week and in bullpen sessions. After the Rangers committed more than $107 million to acquire Darvish, including a guaranteed $56 million, six-year contract, the pitcher’s every move was chronicled and scrutinized last spring. Plenty of people are still watching, but not to the same extent in this camp. “Compared to last year, I think my comfort level is really high,” Darvish said through a translator. “Getting along and communicating with my teammates, I feel very comfortable with it this year.”

making birdies on seven of her last 14 holes. Kaufman tied for second individually for the second consecutive tournament. “I just stayed patient,” Kaufman said of her round, “I said, ‘Hey, I know the birdies will come if I’m patient,’ and I started putting well and rolled a few in and just kind of let it happen. I didn’t try to think about my score too much. The birdies were out there, you just had to be patient and wait for them.”

Hannah Arnold birdied her opening hole of the final 18, the 411-yard par-4 third, en route to a 4-under-par 68. Elin Arvidsson was 8-under-par over the last two round including a bogey-free final round of 69. Arvidsson finished fourth individually with a 5-under-par 211 total. “I have never had any bogeyfree rounds before,” Arvidsson said, “so that’s always something special. This is absolutely my best

tournament in my Tech career, so my self-confidence is higher than before. It’s so much fun to see I get some results out of all the work I’ve been doing.” Other Lady Raider scores on the final day were Beverly Mendoza with a 2-over-par 74 while Kimmy Hill shot a 3-over-par 75. Robertson said the good scoring week can help the Lady Raiders going forward. “I think sometimes in golf, you

have to be comfortable under par, knowing that you’re good enough to shoot those scores on a regular basis,” Robertson said, “ and for the team to finish the entire tournament under par, I think will give them a ton of confidence.” Tech’s next tournament appearance will be the 2013 Clover Cup hosted by Notre Dame at Longbow Golf Club in Mesa, Ariz. The event begins March 8. ➤➤

Price, Longoria make spring debut for Rays


PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) — AL Cy Young Award winner David Price and Evan Longoria had brief, but satisfying spring debuts for the Tampa Bay Rays. Price pitched one scoreless inning and escaped injury when a groundball glanced off his left wrist,

while Longoria successfully tested his surgically-repaired left hamstring on the base paths and had a RBI single during Tuesday’s rain-shortened 7-2 victory over a Houston Astros split-squad. Both players felt good about the way they performed.

(Tiffany) Bias is one of the best guards in the league.” Curry said she appreciates the fans who come to the games to support the Lady Raiders as they take on No. 22 Oklahoma State and looks forward to them supporting the team as it continues its success down the road in Big 12 Conference play. “We need a great crowd,” she said. “It would really help us.

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — Yu Darvish is more at ease in his second spring with the Texas Rangers, and he is still throwing hard.

Plenty of people are still watching, but not to the same extent in this camp. “Compared to last year, I think my comfort level is really high,” Darvish said through a translator. “Getting along and communicating with my teammates, I feel very comfortable with it this year.” Manager Ron Washington described this as a “relaxing spring” for Darvish. “He’s just being a part of things more,” Washington said. “He doesn’t stand out as much as he did last year, which is a good thing. That means he’s blending in with the rest of his teammates. In that respect, it should help.” Nestor Molina and Brian Omogrosso, the first two White Sox pitchers, both had two shutout innings. Omogrosso is in the mix for a possible spot in the Chicago bullpen. Chicago scored six runs in the third off 20-year-old Cody Buckel.

The right-hander, the top minor league pitcher in the Rangers organization last year, walked five of the seven batters he faced. Evan Meek, in Rangers camp on a minor league contract, allowed five runs and five hits and got only two outs in the fourth. Buckel was also hurt by an error when a liner ricocheted off the glove of third baseman Mike Olt, who later hit a two-run homer. After throwing two balls to start the game, Darvish threw two strikes before getting leadoff hitter Dewayne Wise on a foul popout to Olt. Gordon Beckham then struck out. “He looked good, same old stuff. He’s got good stuff, throwing hard it looked like,” Beckham said. “Threw me a couple of fastballs and a slider that struck me out.” Darvish went to three balls on two batters. On a full count, Adam Dunn struck out on a checked swing called strike to start the second before Seth Loman flew out on a 3-0 pitch, the last of 28 pitches Darvish threw — with his fastballs hitting the mid-90s.

Bryce Lamb leaping over expectations By ELLEN CHAPPELL STAFF WRITER

The Texas Tech track and field team sits at No. 4 in national standings and up to No. 8 in the USTFCCCA rankings after the 2013 Big 12 Championships in Ames, Iowa. Several strong performances came out of the championship, including one by senior All-American Bryce Lamb, who competes this season in the long jump and triple jump. Lamb started out the 2013 indoor season watching his teammates compete from the sidelines. Lamb started this year late because of a strained hamstring early in the season. He made his season debut at the Tyson Invitational on Feb. 2 while the rest started in January at the Texas Tech Open. “It just pushed things back — not too far, but it’s a work in progress.” Lamb said. Though he experienced the injury during the previous season in which he finished third at the NCAA Indoor Championships, Lamb is competing strong again after his injury from this season. “I’m feeling fine, it’s not anything that I haven’t kind of been into,” Lamb said about his injury. “Like last year, I had started, I did our second home meet and then I didn’t compete again until nationals. It’s not some-

thing I’m not used to going through something like this last year, it helps me not panic. There’s always that anticipation and that antsy-ness you just want to get out there.” Lamb has been running and jumping since he was a child. He said he has been at it for a while, first running track when he was five and then jumping when he was eight. According to the Big 12 website, during his freshman year he had already made a habit of exceeding the coaches’ expectations when he took a jump of 8.14 meters, setting the Big 12 Indoor meet record and the school record in the long jump. With his elongated experience, he hopes to take it all the way to bring home another win at a national level in his senior year. “I’m honestly just looking to jump into the top five in the nation in both events and just get out there and make a splash,” Lamb said. “I know I’m highly capable of it. I’m just looking out there to jump up there and let everybody know I’m still out there.” Lamb said he devotes all of his time and energy to running and jumping.

break in last season, Lamb is performing like he never left. Lamb is ranked third in USTFCCCA triple jump and first in the Big 12 rankings, and is working his way to be higher ranked in the long jump as he stands at seventh in the Big 12 and is unranked in the

USTFCCCA. “Right now I’m standing at the bottom, at my first time doing it this year, I kind of fouled out and didn’t get a mark,” Lamb said, “but it was good work and I saw some things that were good about it and bad. I’m just looking on them and

get ready for nationals.” Lamb said he gives his undivided attention to jumping, and laughed when thinking about if he did not have track in his life. “Oh, I’d probably be fat,” he said. “But honestly, if I wasn’t running track I’d probably be

somewhere playing football.” Lamb will compete in the national championships beginning March 8 and continuing on to March 9 to have a chance to get his years of effort to pay off yet again. ➤➤

Dennis Rodman worms his way into North Korea PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — Former NBA star Dennis Rodman brought his basketball skills and flamboyant style — tattoos, nose studs and all — to the country with possibly the world’s strictest dress code: North Korea. Arriving in Pyongyang, the American athlete and showman known as “The Worm” became an unlikely ambassador for sports diplomacy at a time of heightened tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. Or maybe not so unlikely: Young leader Kim Jong Un

is said to have been a fan of the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s, when Rodman won three championships with the club. Rodman is joining three members of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team and a VICE correspondent for a news show on North Korea that will air on HBO later this year, VICE producers told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview before they landed. “It’s my first time, I think it’s most of these guys’ first time here, so hopefully everything’s going to be OK , and hoping the kids have a good time for

the game,” Rodman told reporters after arriving in North Korea on Tuesday. Rodman and VICE’s producers said the Americans hope to engage in a little “basketball diplomacy” by running a basketball camp for children and playing with North Korea’s top basketball stars. “Is sending the Harlem Globetrotters and Dennis Rodman to the DPRK strange? In a word, yes,” said Shane Smith, the VICE founder who is host of the upcoming series, referring to North Korea by the initials of its formal name,

the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. “But finding common ground on the basketball court is a beautiful thing.” The notoriously unpredictable and irrepressible Rodman might seem an odd fit for regimented North Korea, where men’s fashion rarely ventures beyond military khaki and where growing facial hair is forbidden. Shown a photo of a snarling Rodman, piercings dangling from his lower lip and two massive tattoos emblazoned on his chest, one North Korean in

Pyongyang recoiled and said: “He looks like a monster!” But Rodman is also a Hall of Fame basketball player and one of the best defenders and rebounders to ever play the game. During a storied, often controversial career, he won five NBA championships — a feat appreciated even in North Korea. Rodman, now 51, was low-key and soft-spoken in cobalt blue sweatpants and a Polo Ralph Lauren cap. There was a bit of flash: white-rimmed sunglasses and studs in his nose and lower

lip. But he told AP he was there to teach basketball and talk to people, not to stir up trouble. Showier were three Harlem Globetrotters dressed in fire-engine red. Rookie Moose Weekes flashed the crowd a huge smile as he made his way off the Air Koryo plane. “We use the basketball as a tool to build cultural ties, build bridges among countries,” said Buckets Blakes, a Globetrotters veteran. “We’re all about happiness and joy and making people smile.”
