KJHK nationally recognized for program, website
ckuiper@kansan.com The University’s student-run radio station, KJHK 90.7, won two national awards from College Broadcasters, Inc., on Nov. 2. The National Student Production Awards, organized by CBI, recognize outstanding student-produced media from hundreds of different outlets throughout the country. University students received awards for two of the most competitive categories: Best Regularly Scheduled Entertainment Program and Best Student Media Website. Michael Engelken, a senior from Overland Park, won for the weekly show he created, hosts and produces, “Live @ KJHK,” which features in-studio performances and interviews with local and touring bands. “I put a lot of work into the show, so it’s definitely nice to be recognized for all of it,” Engelken said. “It’s a good experience to work with professionals, and I’m not just working with kids who play in their parents’ basements. It’s really cool that they want to be here and that a lot of times they contact me about it.” “Live @ KJHK” also includes videos of the live performances that are posted on the station’s website. The show has featured popular bands like Deer Tick and The Veda Rays. Sarah Brennan, online content director for the station, also won a “We kind of got these awards CBI award for the station’s unique at the right time,” she said. “This website, which has features that al- is the time when everyone stops low listeners to search for their fa- working so hard because school vorite DJs and see their set lists as gets crazy and this definitely keeps they’re being played us motivated to live on air.

Rape victims are able to utilize the health center for performing the rape kit and for any advice about what they can do next, said Dohogne. She added that since these appointments are typically time-consuming, Watkins tries to accommodate the victims as much as possible since they’ve already been through a traumatic event. “We can get them taken care of here,” Dohogne said. Though the services offered at Watkins are a convenient resource on campus for students, the certified nurse practitioner is only available during business hours, which are limited on weekends, and there are days when she might not be working. Depending on when the sexual assault takes place, students may not be able

to use the resources available at Watkins. Another option for students is to seek help from the GaDuGi SafeCenter, which is open 24/7 and is located less than a ten-minute drive from campus and is always available by phone. GaDuGi offers a comprehensive range of options for support, said Chrissy Heikkila, interim executive director of the center, including immediate actions like taking the victim to the hospital for an exam or helping them report the assault to the police, or more long-term options, such as guiding them through the investigation and offering them the option to talk with a therapist. All the services at the center are at absolutely no cost to the victim, and any actions taken following the assault are completely up to the victim, said Heikkila.

“We can be as big or as little as people need us to be. Whether it’s one phone call or years of support from us, we are always here,” Heikkila said. “We support them in whatever decision they choose.” Heikkila adds that the advocates at the center are there for the victims for as long as they need them, even if they waited years to talk to someone about the assault for the first time. Watkins and GaDuGi both offer students many resources in the event of being affected by sexual assault, whether they were a victim personally or they are seeking advice for how to help someone close to them who is a victim. “If they need someone to talk them through the process of what to do and where to go, we can always help them with that,” Dohogne said. — Edited by Emma McElhaney


One World Trade Center named tallest U.S. building at 1,776 feet
NEW YORK — They set out to build the tallest skyscraper in the world — a giant that would rise a symbolic 1,776 feet from the ashes of ground zero. Those aspirations of global supremacy fell by the wayside long ago, but New York won a consolation prize Tuesday when an international architectural panel said it would recognize One World Trade Center as the tallest skyscraper in the United States. The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, considered a world authority on supersized skyscrapers, announced its decision at simultaneous news conferences in New York and Chicago, home to the 1,451-foot Willis Tower, which is being dethroned as the nation's tallest building. Measuring the height of a building would seem to be a simple thing, but in the case of the new World Trade Center tower, it is complicated by the 408-foot-tall needle atop the skyscraper's roof. The council's verdict rested on a conclusion that the needle should be counted as part of the building's total height. Without it, the tower would be just 1,368 feet tall, the same height as the original

World Trade Center. That would make it smaller than not only the Willis, but also a 1,397-foot apartment building being built a short subway ride away near Central Park. Speaking at his office in New York, council chairman Timothy Johnson, an architect at the global design firm NBBJ, said the decision by the 25-member height committee had more "tense moments" than usual, given the skyscraper's importance as a patriotic symbol. "I was here on 9/11. I saw the buildings come down," he said.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2013 MOVIE Spencer Museum to give screening of foreign film
If you’re a fan of rom-coms or foreign films, you might be interested in checking out “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?” a film that explores the themes of sexuality, friendship and family. The Spencer Museum of Art will show a free screening of the movie on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 5 p.m. This Taiwanese film made its American debut in the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. It played alongside movies starring acclaimed actors such as Paul Rudd, Ethan Hawke, Kate Hudson and Kiefer Sutherland. The movie is about a middle-aged man, Weichung, whose wife wants to have another child. However, Weichung begins to question his sexual orientation as his long-suppressed gay past comes into light. Family drama also ensues as Weichung’s sister, Mandy, begins to question her impending marriage. The film screening is sponsored by on-campus groups such as the Center of East Asian Studies, KU Queers & Allies and the Confucius Institute.


Funding for Internet service under city’s consideration
csisk@kansan.com Local Internet provider Wicked Broadband has plans to establish a super-fast fiber-optic service to residents of downtown Lawrence. The project would give Lawrence some of the fastest Internet speeds in the country, much like the Google Fiber project in Kansas City. Although the 1-gigabit service would cost around $100 a month for individual users, Wicked officials plan on providing it free-of-charge to a number of organizations, including Lawrence City Hall, the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce, Lawrence Public Library, New York Elementary School and the Douglas County Courthouse. Despite the ambition of Wicked, one glaring roadblock stands in the way: funding. The pilot project plans to service the downtown area and a portion of East Lawrence. Nearly 1,100 resident homes and businesses will have access to a service promising to revolutionize how Lawrence residents use broadband. However, without a substantial grant from the city, the project will go unfinished and Wicked will likely have to sell its existing fiber-optic network. Wicked has promises from private lenders in the amount of $500,000, but they will not fully pledge their money without full support from the city. With this in mind, Wicked has proposed that the city commission lend them another $500,000 so that the project can reach completion. The city commission seems unconvinced at this point, mainly due to the fact that this is a proposal from an individual company, and they feel a number of proposals from multiple technology companies should be considered. The city has been considering the proposal since its submission in May. A major concern is the cost — consultants have estimated that a citywide fiber-optic project would cost somewhere in the range of $35 million to develop and install. Wicked Broadband plans to hold a meeting on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 10:30 a.m. in the Cider Gallery on 810 Pennsylvania St. This meeting will serve as an opportunity for residents and businesses to pose any questions they may have about the pilot project. Students on campus gave their thoughts on the project and whether or not they would be willing to pay the hefty price. — Edited by Kayla Overbey

Hawaii Senate passes bill for gay marriage
HONOLULU — The state Senate passed a bill Tuesday legalizing gay marriage, putting Hawaii a signature away from becoming a same-sex wedding destination. Gov. Neil Abercrombie, who called lawmakers to a special session for the bill and has vocally supported gay marriage, said in a statement he will sign the measure. It will allow thousands of gay couples living in Hawaii and even more tourists to marry in the state starting Dec. 2. “I look forward to signing this significant piece of legislation, which provides marriage equity and fully recognizes and protects religious freedoms,” Abercrombie said. President Barack Obama praised the bill’s passage, saying the affirmation of freedom and equality makes the country stronger. “I’ve always been proud to have been born in Hawaii, and today’s vote makes me even prouder,” Obama said. Senators passed the bill 19-4 with two lawmakers excused. Cheers erupted inside and outside the gallery when the vote was taken, with a smattering of boos. Senate President Donna Mercado Kim, who voted against the bill, banged her gavel and told members of the public to quiet down. More than half the chamber’s lawmakers spoke in support of the bill, with many urging the public to come together to heal divisions within the community. “This is nothing more than the expansion of aloha in Hawaii,” said Sen. J. Kalani English, a Democrat from Maui. Sen. Sam Slom, the chamber’s only Republican, said the government should stay out of legislating marriage. “People have differences, and you can’t legislate morality. You can try, but you can’t do it,” Slom said before voting against the bill. An estimate from a University of Hawaii researcher says the law will boost tourism by $217 million over the next three

years, as Hawaii becomes an outlet for couples in other states, bringing ceremonies, receptions and honeymoons to the islands. The study’s author has said Hawaii would benefit from pent-up demand for gay weddings, with couples spending $166 million over those three years on ceremonies and honeymoons. The Senate took up the bill a second time because of changes made in the House, where the bill was amended and eventually passed. The House amendments delayed the dates ceremonies could begin, slightly expanded an exemption for clergy and religious organizations, and removed regulations determining how children of same-sex couples could qualify for Native Hawaiian benefits. Sen. Clayton Hee, who steered the bill’s passage in the chamber, said the measure was good even though he believes the religious protections granted are too broad. He said the final bill was a good compromise.

Be aware of local alcohol regulations before drinking
hether it’s a response to stressful classes or a celebration of freedom, college students love to drink. It’s been this way and it will always be this way. Denying this is foolish, but fighting it is legal. We live in a world with laws; laws that make it illegal for people under the age of 21 to consume alcohol. And just as the desire to drink runs through our collegiate veins, the desire to catch underage drinkers pumps with equal force through the veins of certain individuals. These individuals are enforcement agents of Kansas’ Alcoholic Beverage Control, or ABC. The Alcoholic Beverage Control is a division within the Kansas Department of Revenue whose main job is to regulate and tax the consumption and sale of alcohol throughout the state. As students, our main concern is how they regulate underage drinking. Because the way the ABC regulates underage drinking could regulate your night and your criminal record. The ABC is well known for combatting underage drinking in Lawrence in many ways. Enforcement agents aim to pick off unsuspecting minors at all possible sources where alcohol is sold: liquor stores, bars, restaurants and house parties. Many of you know someone or, perhaps, you yourself have been caught unexpectedly in an ABC sting. These stings range from agents posing as civilians outside of liquor stores, to undercover agents busting minors in bars. The ABC have been known to go as far as following people

home from the liquor store, noting their address and coming back at night to bust the house party. If caught selling to minors at a house party, the hosts of the party are subject to up to $1,000 in fines or up to six months in jail. As long as students continue to drink, the ABC will continue to have a presence in Lawrence. We are simply too valuable of a clientele to lose. So for those who choose to drink while underage, it’s important to be aware of the ABC’s looming authority. There are certain steps you can take if you don’t wish to find yourself caught in an ABC sting. The first and most obvious is

what your mother has been telling you since high school — don’t drink. I do not advocate or suggest that anyone drink underage, and I strongly believe that no one should drink and drive no matter what your age. But if you choose to drink underage, be smart about it because what you’re doing is illegal and there are people out there whose sole job is to catch you. So be safe, be smart and be careful. We’re not invincible and the Alcoholic Beverage Control aims to prove that. Next, don’t be stupid. Don’t drink in excess; there is no weaker prey than an overly intoxicated underage drinker. If you find yourself in a bar that is known for underage drinkers, always keep a watch over your shoulder. If you

see someone much older that’s not a visiting parent and appears to not be drinking, they could be an undercover. If you think you see an undercover, set down any drinks you might be holding and leave the area you’re in. Also, try and avoid walking around with drinks at the bar in general — the ABC agent most likely won’t confront you if you’re not holding an alcoholic drink. There are countless other ways to have fun besides drinking in college. But there is no denying that underage drinking does happen.

Ending oil subsidies would push Hope is vital to future of alternative energy, save money environmental movement
am not a conservative. I wouldn’t even say I am a liberal. I’m more of a realist-naturalist. I’ve often struggled to maintain balance between the consumer culture I live in and the environmental movement to which I have dedicated my studies. In my quest to understand how these two sides can be positively integrated, I stumbled upon former Republican Congressman Bob Inglis from South Carolina. Inglis represents the Energy and Enterprise Initiative (E&EI), a conservative campaign promoting the use of free enterprise to encourage the development and use of alternative energies. I listened to Inglis speak at the Dole Institute of Politics last spring and a few of E&EI’s ideas have stayed on my brain. E&EI proposes a three-part plan for approaching climate change. First, eliminate federal subsidies for all fuels. Second, attach all costs to fuels. Third, decrease income tax and increase taxes on pollution. At first, I was skeptical of such a black and white plan presented by a conservative group of Republican politicians and economists. But, when I really thought about it, it made a lot of sense to my “realist-naturalist” brain. Let’s break it down. Step one: End subsidies for all fuels. The Federal Government subsidizes many industries, including oil. I have discovered that the government is anything but transparent when describing the amount of money granted to the oil industry to keep consumer prices low and producer gains high. Additionally, many oil companies such as ExxonMobil claim that they do not receive special


By Gabby Murnan

government subsidies at all. They may not receive “special” funding, but they still receive subsidies. Eliminating federal monetary aid for oil would increase the cost of production and thus increase the cost for consumers. You may be thinking, but that’s a bad thing — why should I have to pay more? Keep reading, but I warn you, it gets worse before it gets better. Step two: Attach all costs to fuels. Currently, we do not pay at the pump for the environmental, health or productivity costs of fossil fuels. We do, however, pay these costs through taxes in the long run. The burden of fossil fuels is being disproportionately placed on the consumer, while producers continue to reap the benefits of subsidies. Attaching all costs to fossil fuels would increase the cost of oil, causing consumers to pay more. Once again you may be wondering how increased costs for consumers is a good thing — stay with me. Step three: Decrease income tax and increase pollution taxes. Here we go, now we’re talking money in the pockets of consumers and accountability for environment-damaging industries. E&EI argues that we should be taxing what we want less of — pollution — rather than what we want more of — money. Now let’s put it all together and look at it through the principles of free enterprise. If subsidies are eliminated for all fuels, and prices of fossil fuels reflect all costs, then the need for new

energy solutions will be apparent when we pay our electricity bill or fill up our cars. As oil prices continue to increase, it will become obvious that oil is not a sustainable, cost-effective answer for energy. By getting rid of subsidies, the playing field is made even for entrepreneurs to explore innovative energy initiatives. Oil will no longer distort the market and monopolize the energy industry. Without the interference of the government on behalf of oil, entrepreneurs will be able to develop renewable and cost-effective alternative energies. Meanwhile, consumers will have more money to put back into the economy due to decreases in personal income tax, while pollution-creating industries will be held monetarily accountable for their damaging actions. True energy and climate solutions will require a balance of conservative and liberal ideas. Although E&EI’s ideas are based off of conservative values, its goals are bipartisan and its plan is, in my opinion, ingenious. Some may call it naïve to say that we are running out of oil, but I call it irresponsible to think otherwise. Oil is the foundation of our economy, but it is crumbling. We need to reinforce the cracks with alternative energies and systematically phase out fossil fuels from our economy. It is unwise to continue full blast on a path that experts say is coming to a dead end. Rather than drive ourselves into both a catastrophic economic and environmental crisis, we must allow innovation to provide the fuels of tomorrow.

Hello Netflix, my old friend, I’ve come to binge on you again, Because a vision softly creeping, Left its seeds while I was sleeping

n my Alternative Breaks class, Dr. Shane Lopez gave a talk about hope in preparation for our service trips. He defined hope as “believing the future will be better than the present” and having the belief that we “have some role in making it so.” As he articulated, hope is not limited by a single context but can be present anywhere. Hope is a necessary ingredient to mitigating and adapting to climate change. The first step in having hope for the future of our planet is accepting the situation. As Bill Nye puts it, “Climate change is happening, humans are causing it and I think this is perhaps the most serious environmental issue facing us.” Apparently not everyone agrees with our beloved science guy. Those who haven’t accepted global warming and climate change as a true problem are only acting as roadblocks to solutions. Looking at those who represent us in Washington, the misinformed and blatant ignorance is glaring. There is an entire website for those “climate-deniers” in Congress on the “Organizing for Action” section of Obama’s website. Politics aside, the statements made are not backed with scientific evidence and often ignore the most pressing issue. For example, Rep. John Boehner said, “the idea that carbon dioxide is a carcinogen that is harmful to our environment is almost comical. Every time we exhale, we exhale carbon dioxide. Every cow in the world, you know, when they do what they do, you’ve got more carbon dioxide.” This statement ignores that cows actually are large contributors of methane, and the source of carbon dioxide that concerns scientists is not what we breathe out, but rather carbon emitted by the burning of fossil fuels. Minimizing an issue without informing yourself will perpetuate the problem of climate change. Many people think this issue is solely for the tree-huggers and

outdoor adventurers, but global climate change will have huge impacts for everyone, some of which are pressing problems of today’s world that will only get worse. Climate change has social, biological and political effects. Look no further than the increase of infectious disease and weather-related mortality, the suffering of crops that are no longer in their optimal temperature range, destruction of coastal habitats and homes by sea level rise and a shortage of water for evidence. Back to Dr. Lopez’s quote. I’m sure my rant of negativity was not the most convincing argument for the future being better than the present. This is where the second part of the quote becomes so incredibly crucial. We really do have a role in helping the future be better than the present. We may not be able to ‘reverse’ global warming but we sure can slow it down with the right policies and research. As ABC news journalist Bill Blakemore puts it, “There are now signs that, little by little, voices and personalities are beginning to emerge around the world who are starting to hug this monster, manage the fear, and turn the emotions it causes into action.” The monster that Blakemore refers to is fear. Our actions must not be driven by fear, as fear inspires denial. In order to create a better world in the future, we must act out of hope and support climate change policies, advocate for sustainable education and have faith in the power of people on a mission.

Cultures communicate through fashion show during SUA event
stemplin@kansan.com Tonight, the “universal language” of fashion will be on full display, along with multicultural foods, traditions and entertainment, in the second annual World Fashion Show. The outfits displayed will include traditional garments and modern twists on the customary wear. The World Fashion Show is held by the Student Union Activities (SUA) Cultural Programming committee to inform University students of cultural diversity on campus and is co-sponsored by the Center for Global and International Studies. “We aim to offer a variety of events that will bring together the students of KU to celebrate and spark conversations about cultural awareness,” said Kailee Karr, SUA Cultural Programming committee assistant coordinator. “This event, specifically, is also designed to showcase culturally focused groups and students around campus in a beautiful display of world fashion and traditions.” The committee has worked on this event in particular for over six months. A number of student organizations will also participate in the festivities — the First Nations Student Association will feature a musical duet and a traditional Chinese pianist, and the Arab Student Union and KU Jeeva Bollywood Dance Group will each perform dances. “We are participating in order to spread the word about our team and the way that our culture is incorporated into our dance,” said Karishma Khetani, captain of the nationally competitive KU Jeeva Bollywood Dance Group. Other participating cultural organizations include the Paraguayan Student Association, Hispanic American Leadership Association and the Chinese Students and Scholars Friendship Organization. In addition, three graduate students from Japan, Kazakhstan and Pakistan are involved. Audience members of the World Fashion Show will join a diverse, student-led event that showcases countries all over the world, while celebrating cultures and talents. Global Awareness Program (GAP) credit is available through the attendance of the event as well. This event will begin in the Kansas Union Ballroom at 7 p.m. — Edited by Kayla Overbey

Six songs to improve your midweek slump
the power of looping pedals in music. El Ten Eleven’s bassist/ guitarist Kristian Dunn uses a double-necked guitar/bass guitar to layer his instrumental parts on top of one another. The song is worth a listen, if only to understand the power that guitar-effects and looping can have on music. Com Truise has also remixed this song into a much altered — and way more electronic — sound for electronic-music fans. but hardly. The song opens with a nice, lo-fi sound on the guitars with lyrics that could begin any standard love song. The song operates effectively through its ironies and sarcasm — both lyrically and musically. The song uses a fair amount of heavy crunch effect, and it also utilizes a set of bells to offset its would-be-darker sound. Its lyrics also seem to be a contradiction, “Green Eyes, I’d run away with you, / Green Eyes, because I’m a fool.”


tdehart@kansan.com Feeling the effects of the middle of the week? Try these songs on and see if you feel any warmer. Ranging from the happy sounds of Dr. Dog to the fast-paced, intense lyrical rhymes of Slim Shady, these songs are meant to help make your Wednesday better.

Album: B-Room (2013) The first track off of Dr. Dog’s most recent release, ANTI, INC. this song encapsulates the sounds of Dr. Dog so well and is a great start to the album. “The Truth” is infused with a poppy feel that still allows the song to possess a slow, fifties rhythm that consists of a wonderfully constructed bass line accompanied by a minimalist drumbeat beneath the joyful sounding tones of the piano and guitar.

Album: Fugazi (1988) Fugazi’s “Waiting Room” is a song that has become almost a staple in punk-music as people experience DISCHORD RECORDS it today. It is the band’s most well-known song and has been covered by bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers during the 1990s. The song is full of a streaming bass-line overdubbed by a lot of palm-muted guitar during the verses which then explodes into a more chaotic chorus.

Album: Turn On the Bright Lights (2002) Interpol’s vocalist, Paul Banks, makes singing in a monotonous tone sound DISCHORD RECORDS so cool. The fast-paced rhythms of the band’s songs make his voice sound even better. Off of Interpol’s first release, “Turn on the Bright Lights,” this song was able to launch Interpol into a position to be recognized.


Album: Transitions (2012) El Ten Eleven is the kind of band that can amaze. “Thanks Bill” is a song that demonstrates the twoman band’s ability to showcase

Album: King of the Beach (2010) “Green Eyes” is a love song —

Album: Marshall Mathers LP2 (2013) Marshall Mathers returns to his roots with his newest release, “Marshall Mathers LP2,” and there is a little bit for everybody on this new album. “Groundhog Day,” one of the final tracks on the album, has a beat that is so compelling, and Slim’s rapping is so fast, so good, and so full of emotion, that it has the ability to make people remember why and how Eminem became so wellknown in hip-hop at the turn of the century. — Edited by Emma McElhaney

Kansas combats foul trouble to beat Duke
bhillix@kansan.com In a game where both teams got into foul trouble, Kansas proved to be the team that managed it better. This is in large part due to the efficient play of the Kansas bench. The Jayhawks received contributions from multiple bench players while the Blue Devils’ bench as a whole struggled to find any rhythm. Six players earned at least four fouls in the game as both teams reached the double bonus midway through the second half. In a game with multiple ties and lead changes, Kansas’ ability to manage their players in foul trouble gave them the late lead and eventually the game. Andrew Wiggins in particular shined. Wiggins was flagged for two early fouls in the game and sat the remainder of the first half after recording six points and three rebounds. He started the second half with an early jumper and went on to score eight more points before picking up his fourth foul of the night. His best play came with four fouls. After returning to the game, Wiggins showed the intensity many have come to expect. With a slim lead of 83-81, Wiggins scored the next four points for Kansas that gave the Jayhawks a cushion late in the contest. Even though he hadn’t hit a jump shot all night, he made a step-back 15-foot jump shot over a Duke defender to stretch the thin lead to four. After a Perry Ellis steal, he broke away from the pack and jammed home a basket that gave the Jayhawks a six-point lead. Wiggins was also fouled on the play and ended up getting an offensive rebound off of his missed throw, which gave Kansas a fresh shot clock and forced another Duke foul. Tarik Black — known for getting into foul trouble at Memphis — also received two early fouls in the contest. Jamari Traylor and Joel Embiid stepped in for big minutes as they combined to play a majority of the minutes in Black’s absence. Black didn’t attempt a field goal during the game. Despite playing with foul trouble throughout much of the night, Traylor had an all-around performance with four points, one assist, one steal and one block. Embiid came off the bench to chip five rebounds (three offensive), three assists, one steal and one block.

Freshman guard Wayne Selden Jr. attempts a dunk during the Nov. 12 Champions Classic game.



Highly touted freshman Jabari Parker dazzled for Duke but was quieted late after picking up his fourth foul of the evening. He would end up fouling out after hitting Wiggins on his dunk with just over one minute remaining. Aside from Parker, every Duke starter except for center Amile Jefferson had at least four fouls for the evening. Factoring out Rasheed

Sulaimon, who also recorded four fouls, Duke’s bench only accounted for two Duke points. Kansas’ bench was far more impressive as it accounted for 26 points for the night. With new hand-checking rules that have increased the numbers of defensive fouls, many games will come down to who can stay out of foul trouble, or rather, who can play better while in foul trouble.

Kansas proved to be that team tonight. — Edited by Emma McElhaney

All eyes were on Wiggins at the United Center, and the highly touted freshman didn’t disappoint. Despite early foul trouble, Wiggins scored 22-points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Jayhawks soared past the Blue Devils. Wiggins’ second half, including a fast break dunk that resulted in Duke freshman Jabari Parker’s fifth foul, led Kansas to victory and a game Wiggins will certainly remember.

Tarik Black, Foward
OK, so Black won’t really be forgetting a Kansas win against Duke in Chicago, but he didn’t exactly have a career night, either. Black didn’t score a point or take a shot. He did have two fouls early, which earned him a seat on the bench.

Jayhawks in shape to face Cougars tonight
sliang@kansan.com After playing in a game without much rhythm to start the season, the Kansas women’s basketball team (1-0) turns its eyes to the Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville Cougars (0-1), coming to town today. The Jayhawks are still trying to figure out how to play with their new-look team. In their opener against Oral Roberts, juniors Natalie Knight and Chelsea Gardner, the only two players with significant starting experience, proved to be consistent forces on the team. In the two exhibition games and first regular season game, the Jayhawks have made a trend of going on a second-half run to create a comfortable lead between them and the opposition. Against Oral Roberts, the Jayhawks were up by 10 points at halftime and came out of the locker room on a 10-3 burst. Gardner recorded a double-double, the seventh of her career, with 24 points and 13 rebounds, while Knight contributed 12 points and dished out a career-high seven assists. Kansas and Oral Roberts combined for 58 fouls, which stunted the rhythm of the game. Guard Asia Boyd also earned a double-double in the game with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Kansas was fouled 33 times, which would usually signify an aggressive style of play. After the game, coach Bonnie Henrickson said the opposite was true. She said her team was not aggressive enough and needed to work on attacking and driving to the basket more often. SIU-Edwardsville started its season off with a 59-48 loss to Missouri on Sunday. The Cougars shot 33.3 percent from the field and made five less three-point baskets than Missouri. The Cougars had three players reach double figures: forwards Jessie Wendt and Allyssa Decker, and guard Tierny Austin had 10, 11 and 12 points, respectively. Despite losing the game, the Cougars outscored Missouri in the paint, 30-24. They took 21 threepoint shots their last time out, but only connected on two of them. The Jayhawks need to find a way to stop the Cougars from getting into the paint area and force them to shoot long jumpers. When these two teams met three years ago on Dec. 19, 2010, Kansas exploded into a 91-52 victory. Kansas is in the middle of a threegame homestand that will conclude against Creighton on Sunday, Nov. 17. The Jayhawks will matchup with the SIU-Edwardsville Cougars tonight at 7 p.m. — Edited by Kayla Overbey

Junior forward Chelsea Gardner’s teammates help her up after a play during the game against Oral Roberts on Sunday, Nov. 10. Gardner recorded the seventh double-double of her career during that game. She will face the SIU-Edwardsville Cougars with the Jayhawks tonight at 7 p.m.

He is doing anything he can to change the environment of Kansas football. Charlie Weis is going into the rest of the season with an “all in” mentality. When asked if Kansas is embracing their spoiler role in a mustwin game for West Virginia, Weis said that it is a must-win game for the Jayhawks, as well. “I’m all in. I have all my chips on the table. I’m either going to double up, or I’m going to walk away empty-handed.” The Kansas football team has been mathematically eliminated from bowl contention. “The Saturday after Thanksgiving is our bowl game,” Weis said. They have three Big 12 games remaining on their schedule. Weis said that these next three games are the Jayhawks’ playoffs. returned to the field last week against Oklahoma State. Pierson led all rushers with 87 yards on just six carries. Pierson undoubtedly adds an extra element to the Jayhawk offense and Charlie Weis understands that. The Jayhawks have not been able to pick up large chunks of yardage through the passing game this season. “Whenever Tony touches the ball and we get him in space, you can see that’s like our passing game,” Weis said. “That’s where we get our chunks.” Pierson admitted to feeling dizzy at points during last week’s game against Oklahoma State. “He was scared,” Weis said. “Tony was afraid of taking another big hit and getting another concussion.” Pierson has that big play potential that not a lot of the other players on the roster posses. His health and production are crucial to Kansas’ success in the last three games of the season. — Edited by James Ogden

Football Notebook


Junior running back Tony Pierson (3) sheds a tackle during the Oct. 5 game against Texas Tech. Coach Charlie Weis hopes to use Pierson’s big play potential to help the Jayhawk offense the last three games of the season.


Coach Charlie Weis made it very clear that this week’s practice schedule was going to be very different. The team spent all of Saturday’s practice focusing on first and second down offense and defense. Weis did not want any special team distractions getting in the way. “There are two ways of handling things,” Weis said when discussing his reasoning for mixing things up this week. “There is the ‘oh well’ way of handling it and then there is the ‘finding another way to do it’ method. I have never been much of an ‘oh well’ kind of guy.” Weis is putting all of his energy into West Virginia. West Virginia is coming off a disheartening loss against a solid Texas squad. Weis is preparing for a hungry and able Mountaineer team with a lot left to gain this season. Lately, Weis has been stressing transitions. He wants his players to take their work in the classroom and transition that onto the

VanVleet leads No. 16 Wichita State past Western Kentucky
the Shockers (2-0) while Tekele Cotton added 10 points. Before the game, Wichita State unveiled the banner to commemorate its run to the Final Four last season. Shockers coach Gregg Marshall spent the long day before the game putting his team through two walkthrough and video sessions. Much of the preparation went out the window at halftime, with the team shooting 38.6 percent and leading just 30-28. "We were impatient, itchy, off-kilter in our motion offense in the first half," Marshall said. "So in the second half, we went to more of a ball-screen offense and it worked well." Wichita State scored the first nine points of the second half to take control. Caden Dickerson's 3-pointer pulled Western Kentucky to 51-42 with 8:44 to play, but Cotton scored the next four points for the Shockers to stem the tide. "We had three or four defensive breakdowns right out of the gate," Hilltoppers coach Ray Harper said. "And it got away from us in the first five minutes." Western Kentucky, which shot 7 for 30 in the second half, didn't get within 10 points again. "We didn't defend as well as they did," Hilltoppers forward Aaron Adeoye said. "They stayed disciplined and we didn't." T.J. Price and Aleksej Rostov scored 12 points each to lead Western Kentucky (0-1). Wichita State, which finished with 12 blocks and had a 3614 edge on scoring in the paint, jumped out to a 6-0 lead to excite the sold-out crowd. Western Kentucky survived the rough early stretch and turned the rest of the half into a grudge match of runs. Price put Western Kentucky on the board with a 3-pointer that started a 12-4 run, capped by Kevin Kaspar's three, for a 12-10 lead with 11:22 remaining in the half. Wichita State answered with seven straight points, four from VanVleet, before Western Kentucky countered with nine straight, including Ben Lawson's slam and Kaspar's three for a 21-17 lead with 5:48 left in the period. The Shockers followed with an 11-1 run, highlighted by two circus layups from VanVleet, before Price bounced in a three at the buzzer to pull the Hiltoppers within two. Wichita State came out strong in the second half. Ron Baker made a corner three and Coleby had three straight baskets, including two emphatic slams. Through the first 11 minutes of the second half, Western Kentucky had just four baskets — all by Rostov. Coleby, a senior transfer from Louisiana-Lafayette, was willing to take credit for the blocked shots, even beyond his three. "Yeah, I brought it here," he said. "Guys are stalking them out. We're looking for them now. You can't just drive us for easy shots."

WICHITA — Fred VanVleet didn't have enough energy to be excited after No. 16 Wichita State's latest win. VanVleet scored 17 points and Kadeem Coleby had 13 to lead the Shockers in a 66-49 victory over Western Kentucky early Tuesday morning. "It's pretty late," VanVleet said after the matchup that tipped at midnight locally and finished at 2:09 a.m. "And it took a lot of mental and physical focus for this game."

— Coach Bill Self on Coach Andrea Hudy, ESPN.com

“I don’t know where we’d be without her.”


Andrea Hudy was the strength and conditioning coach at UCONN before coming to Kansas. — ESPN.com

Q: In 2006, Sherron Collins entered the season weighing 220 pounds. After working out with Hudy, how much did he weigh at the end of the season? A: 205



Strength and conditioning coach acts as Kansas’ hidden weapon
mouth open, ready to let his players know what they did wrong. As soon as everyone sees that face on what might be the most intense coach in college basketball, we all know what’s about to happen. Whether his intensity is used to help teach his players when they do something wrong or make sure his players stay motivated, Self ’s intensity is something everyone knows about. However, the great thing about him and what makes him such a great coach is the fact that he knows how to balance it between motivating his players and correcting them. As for me, I would probably have to make the conclusion that Hudy is the more intense person while doing her job. There are many coaches out there who can really get underneath a player’s skin, but not many strength and conditioning coaches have the ability to make life a living hell and still maintain respect from everyone around them like Hudy can. Believe it or not, she is the hidden secret to why Kansas basketball is as successful as it is.



— ESPN.com

ccording to Dictionary.com, the word “intensity” is defined as a high degree of emotional excitement. During the basketball game last week against Louisiana-Monroe, a friend of mine proposed a question that really got me thinking: Who is the more intense person while doing their job? Bill Self or Andrea Hudy? For those who don’t know, Hudy is the strength and conditioning coach for the basketball team. She is also said to be someone who will give you one of the most physically demanding workouts of your life. Now, the common answer to this question would probably be Self, due to the fact that fans are constantly watching him get in his players’ faces during timeouts. However, that would also be the answer for someone who has never heard about a “Hudy Workout.” Much like Self, Hudy always finds a way to bring out the best in players and have them reach their maximum potential as athletes. She has been quoted saying that if you aren’t throwing up, you aren’t working hard

enough. Throughout the week-long boot camp that the players go through before the start of each season, Hudy is right by Self ’s side, making sure players are exerting every bit of energy they have within them. To go along with the customized workouts she has for each player, which are based on their body types and personal goals, Hudy also creates special meal plans and grocery lists, which players must follow in order to reach those fitness goals. On the flip side, we have all seen the face that coach Self displays shamelessly after calling a timeout. Eyebrows pointed down,

No. 2 Spartans upset No. 1 Kentucky 78-74
CHICAGO — Experience trumps talent. At least at this point in the year. Branden Dawson tipped in a miss with less than six seconds left, and No. 2 Michigan State hung on for a 78-74 victory over top-ranked Kentucky and its latest cast of young phenoms in the first game of the Champions Classic on Tuesday night. As James Young missed a 3-pointer, the Michigan State fans — including the Spartan in Chief, Magic Johnson, erupted. Gary Harris held up his index finger, indicating the No. 1 ranking the Spartans (2-0) are sure to have next week. But this might not be the last these two teams see of each other. With four of the top five teams in the one-day tournament — Duke and Kansas played in the nightcap — it's no stretch to imagine this as a sneak peek at the Final Four. The Spartans' Keith Appling came within two rebounds and two assists of a triple-double, finishing with 22 points, and eight rebounds and assists. Harris had 20 points and Adreian Payne had 15 points and four rebounds. Julius Randle led the Wildcats (2-1) with 27 points — all but four in the second half — and 13 rebounds. Andrew Harrison had 11. But the Wildcats were hurt by early turnovers and they were just 20 of 36 from the free throw line. This was the earliest 1 vs. 2 matchup, and first since Feb. 23, 2008, when Tennessee beat top-ranked Memphis. The Tigers coach then? None other than John Calipari. This game had even more hype, mostly because of the Kiddie Cats. Much has been made of the youngsters, with good reason. The last time Calipari had a roster this star-studded, the Wildcats won a national title. And this group might be even more impressive. Six were McDonald's All-Americans, and all are considered lottery picks in next summer's NBA draft, with Randle a possibility for the overall No. 1. The youngsters did nothing to lessen the hype in their first two games, with Randle averaging 22.5 points and 15 rebounds, and the Harrison twins averaging in double figures. No wonder the game brought out scouts from almost every NBA team and celebrities including Nazr Mohammed and Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. But the Spartans aren't exactly slouches, returning six of their top seven scorers. Just as important, big-time games like this are nothing new to them, with coach Tom Izzo routinely scheduling the likes of Connecticut, Duke, North Carolina and Kansas before Jan. 1. The experience showed early, as the Spartans harassed Kentucky relentlessly on both ends of the court. But Kentucky has too much talent to stay down for long. After trailing by 13 with 11:32 to play, the Wildcats came roaring back behind Randle, who left little doubt why coaches throughout the NBA covet him. He scored nine points in Kentucky's 13-1 run, including a "How'd he do that?" off-balance jumper from behind a sea of green jerseys. Andrew Harrison followed with a layup to cut Michigan State's lead to 60-59 with 8:05 to play. Andrew Harrison and Randle


each made a pair of free throws, tying the game at 66 with 4:48 left. But Appling drilled a 3, and Harris stripped Randle at the other end and took it in for a layup that put Michigan State back in front, 7166. Randle wasn't done just yet. After Andrew Harrison's free throws Kentucky within 76-72 with 1:33 to play, the Wildcats pounced on an Appling turnover and Randle scored on a jumper. But Dawson tipped in a miss by Denzel Valentine at the other end to seal the win.

Team hopes to finish the season strong



Gardner helps Jayhawks prepare to face the Cougars


Win against Duke irrelevant for long-term goals




By Blake Schuster


HICAGO — The Champions Classic is billed as the preseason Final Four. What a waste of a great branding opportunity. Pundits could have gone with “November Nonsense” or “McDonald’s All-America Game Part 2.” Instead, they settled on a term that causes panic and delirium. Back in New Orleans during the 2012 National Championship, you felt the urgency in the air. That wasn’t a party so much as an anxiety-off, discovering which fanbase could endure the most stress. In Chicago, there was nothing but hope. Each fan walking the concourse at the United Center had a silly smile that we all come across at some point or another. The one that says “this is our year” behind a frozen facial expression. Regardless of Kansas’ 94-83 win against Duke, every fan understands that true bragging rights are handed out in early April. Perhaps this is one of the instances that makes college basketball beautiful. The Champions Classic is not meant to break a team’s season — only to show how far some squads have to go. It allows fans to keep dreaming a little bit longer. Will Michigan State, Kentucky, Duke and Kansas all meet in the Final Four? Pretty unlikely. But their season didn’t end on a Tuesday in November. If this were college football you could bet one of these powerhouse programs that lost in Chicago would not be playing in the National Championship. When Alabama plays Michigan in week one, it might as well be for a chance at the title. This may come as a shock to some, but not every game matters. Especially not the second game of the season. For now, there’s just hope for fans that their team will get to play in the games that do mean something — the games in March and beyond. That much was understood on Tuesday. As was this: Before stepping into the United Center, before driving down west Madison Street, although sometime slightly after arriving in the Windy City, you could sense Chicago is a Jayhawk town. Take a walk down Michigan Avenue, where the cool breeze off Lake Michigan funnels between the city’s skyscrapers and it’s hard to miss. You’ll notice the winter hats first, the kind with the “KU” logo stitched on the front. Walk past the Niketown with the Michael Jordan quotes on the wall and you’ll spot the man in the Jayhawks letterman jacket. Peer into the cars and cabs that pass by — you’ll notice the Kansas jerseys, too. Each person sporting that same goofy smile. Of course, heading to the United Center and strolling down Madison helped confirm that. Jayhawks fans didn’t invade Chicago. It seems as if they’d always been here, hoping and praying with the rest of them. —Edited by Kayla Overbey

Neither team could secure the lead for long as once again fouls became a key component of the game. The two teams combined for 53 calls, giving each an opportunity to steal the game at the line. Kansas shot 76 percent while Duke hit 16-28. “It just takes away all aggressiveness defensively,” Self said. Still, this night was meant for Wiggins. It took until the final minute for him to deliver, though it wouldn’t have happened without Ellis. With Kansas up 83-81, Wiggins connected on a jumper, Ellis stole the ball back on the ensuing possession and dished back to Wiggins for another slam. And as Wiggins went up, Parker went

Freshman Cozart develops into dual-threat quarterback
coberkrom@kansan.com The lack of a passing game has afforded Kansas football the luxury of experimentation. One of those experiments is freshman quarterback Montell Cozart. This week, Cozart was listed beside Jake Heaps as the number one quarterback option. Weis doesn’t want to hint at who will be on the field first against West Virginia on Saturday. “I know who is starting at quarterback. Why should I tell them?” Weis said. “That’s really what it comes down to.” With youth still on his side, Cozart has more freedom with play calling — his style fits nicely with where quarterbacks are currently trending. Athletic quarterbacks have blossomed and now couple their ability to run the ball with their passing ability, which keeps opponents honest. “Ideally you would have the drop back guy who is the athlete,” Weis said. Weis mentioned that the good passing quarterbacks in the NFL (Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III) are becoming better athletes. Still becoming familiar with the drop back quarterback role, Cozart has been plugged into Kansas’ offensive scheme, which is a key, realistic situation for his development. “It’s been good for us to be able to do it the way we’ve done it,” Weis said. “But, I think the fact that he’s been able to ease into it, I think that has been good for him.” Cozart, who attended Bishop Miege High School, first took snaps against Oklahoma and now looks to impact Kansas’ quarterback future. Cozart gradually received more repetitions as the season progressed and is now more comfortable in taking the offensive reigns. There’s a perception that the learning curve for young quarterbacks in a spread offense system isn’t difficult, but that curve may be more steep than it seems. “Calling the plays isn’t as easy as everybody thinks it is,” Weis said. Cozart’s ability to extend plays is why he’s been splitting snaps with Heaps — the player deemed No. 1 at the season’s start. Weis has taken a distinct mentality with Cozart and frequently encourages him on the field when he does something wrong, but adapts. “We have a lot of problems in the past couple of years when the quarterback freezes and play is now over,” Weis said. “But one thing that happens with [Cozart] when he freezes — the play could just be starting.” Barry Sanders was in attendance on Saturday’s game, causing Weis to joke that Sanders might have inspired Cozart’s performance­­— ­ he dodged multiple defenders across the field. Cozart’s development is in the infant stage and he’ll be watched closely going forward. He’s emerged as a potential full-time starter for next season, but this season­— with three games left­­ — is what will develop him as a du­­ al-threat quarterback. — Edited by Kayla Overbey

In the past months, coach Charlie Weis has watched freshman quarterback Montell Cozart grow into a sizeable player and potential full-time starter for next season.
