Victim’s spouse indicted
Fourteen-year-old Melodie
Miller’s voice didn’t waver as
she told a packed courthouse
she heard muffled cries coming
from her mother’s room the
night she died.
Her mother, Mary Miller, a
former KU librarian, was found
dead the morning of July 28,
2004, at the Millers’ house in the
2100 block of Carolina Street.
Mary Miller was in charge of
technology at Watson Library.
Prosecutors presented their
case against Mary Miller’s hus-
band, Martin K. Miller, who was
charged with the first-degree
murder in yesterday’s prelimi-
nary hearing.
“I never heard her yell like
that,” Melodie Miller said while
Melodie Miller was one of sev-
eral witnesses called to testify.
Police officers, detectives, the
couple’s 12-year-old son
Matthew Miller, and a 54-year-
old Eudora woman who said
she had a four-year affair with
Martin Miller all testified on
behalf of the prosecution.
Melodie Miller testified she
was going to check on her
mother after she heard the
scream, but returned to bed
when she heard a male voice
she assumed was her father’s
saying everything was going to
be OK.
“It was a very comforting
voice,” she said.
Melodie Miller testified that
she heard footsteps and saw a
male who appeared to be her
father walk past her room short-
ly after midnight.
She awoke to the sound of
sirens at about 6:30 the next
She walked into her mother’s
room where she saw her mother
lying in bed, surrounded by four
police officers.
“When I saw her I knew she
was dead,” Melodie Miller said.
As she left the stand, Melodie
Miller didn’t appear to look at
her father, who was seated at the
defendant’s table. Martin Miller
seemed as calm and collected as
his daughter as she left the room.
Detective Jeff Cross, one of
the officers who was on the
scene when Mary Miller was
found, interviewed Martin
Miller that morning.
Cross presented material yes-
terday that he gathered from
Martin Miller. Cross testified
that Martin Miller told police he
awoke in the living room about
6 a.m. to the sound of an alarm
clock in his and his wife’s bed-
Around 2 a.m. he moved to a
recliner to sleep because of head

The University of

Tissue Bank began
in the early
1990s, primarily
with brain sam-
ples that had
been diagnosed
with Alzheimer’s
and Parkinson’s
Three deep-freeze units sit at 2014 West in the University of
Kansas Medical Center's Wahl Building.
Inside are pieces of about 300 human brains, most of which are
stored in plastic bags inside disposable Tupperware. After nine
years of almost being forgotten, a program that focuses on collect-
ing brain samples for research is operating again.
The University of Kansas Brain Tissue Bank is run by Larry
Carver, professor of psychiatry, and Kathy Newell, professor of
pathology. Brain samples are from donors diagnosed with various
neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases.
“The importance of this resource to research is unbelievable,"
Newell said. “There isn’t another in the region.”
Newell, who has done research on Alzheimer's disease, "inher-
ited" part of the collection two and half years ago when she came
to the Med Center. Brains with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's dis-
eases formed most of a collection of tissue started by Rajesh
Pahwa, professor of neurology, Newell said. Pahwa began the pro-
gram in 1991.
Because of a lack of funds, the collection sat around unnoticed
from 1996 until January 2005. When Carver arrived last year with
his personal collection of about 150 brains, the collection rose to
nearly 300 brains. Samples in his collection were diagnosed with
various psychiatric illnesses, dementia and neurological disorders,
such as schizophrenia, depression and multiple sclerosis.
He began collecting the tissue when he did research at
Louisiana State University Medical Center.

Funds needed for entrances
University of Kansas officials are
looking for donors to complete a 10-
year, $22 million facelift for the
University of Kansas.
The Landscape Master Plan, which
was designed in April 2000 by Jeffrey
L. Bruce and Company, involves
adding five new gates as entrances to
the University.
The Malott Gate was the first
installment of the plan and was
completed during the summer of
2002. Bob Malott, son of the late
University Chancellor Deane W.
Malott, and his wife Elizabeth
donated $1 million.
The Malott gateway, at Bob Billings
Parkway and Iowa Street, cost
$800,000 to build.
Other gates are planned for 19th
Street and Naismith Drive; 11th and
Mississippi streets; 13th Street and
Oread Avenue and 17th and Indiana
The 13th Street and Oread Avenue
gateway has not been designed yet,
although it could contain a fountain
or a circle in the street. Warren
Corman, University architect, said
the design could depend on the
He said funding for the project
comes from private donors.
However, the Endowment
Association hasn’t received other
donations for the project.
“People liked the plan, but nobody’s
really stepped up,” Corman said.
Beautifying the campus has been
one of Chancellor Robert
Hemenway’s main goals, Corman
An aesthetically pleasing campus
could help the University recruit more
students, Corman said.
April Diederich, Walmego sopho-
more, said the gateways are good-
looking, but that the cost seems exces-
“I think there are other things
that much money could be spent
on,” she said. “Five of them seem
like a lot.”
Endowment Association officials
are looking for donors like the
Malotts who had an interest in mak-
ing the campus look better, John
Scarffe, director of communications
for the Endowment Association
Scarffe said the difficulty of find-
ing donors for the remaining gate-
ways was that most alumni want to
donate to their specific professional
“A person who graduated from the
business school, for example, has a
loyalty to that school and would most
likely fund a professorship for that
school,” he said.

Rose Lopez said. “It just isn’t feasi-

of every hall.”
Chanay said that providing 100
percent coverage isn’t necessary for
now because not everybody living at

this is what we will deliver,” Chanay
Rose Lopez said that Information

“It should be a reasonable goal to
get on that list,” Chanay said. “We are

behind its main competition.

good dancers. It’s in their
Just ask Josi Lima, São
Paulo, Brazil, junior.
Last night, she and Jana
Corrêa, São Paulo, Brazil,
sophomore, taught a samba
and axé dance workshop. The
workshop was one of seven
Brazilian Week events, which
are leading up to the Brazilian
Student Association’s
Carnaval party this Saturday.
Association president, Terena
Silva, Recife, Brazil, senior,
started the dance workshop
to familiarize people planning
to attend the party with basic
Brazilian dance steps. Silva
said that though people
enjoyed the energy of last
year’s Carnaval, they wanted
to be able to dance at it.
“Everyone was complain-
ing that they didn’t know how
to dance at the carnaval,”
Silva said, “So we figured we
would teach it.”
Energetic hosts Lima and
Corrêa, transfer volleyball
players from Brazil, and
Rafael Demarco, Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil, senior, helped
30 participants learn basic
dance steps to four dances.
We want to teach partici-
pants basic dance steps of
songs that will be played at
the Carnaval, said Demarco,
treasurer and social chair of
the association. We hope that
they will enjoy that, he said.
The four steps were samba,
the most popular dance;
forro, a dance from north-
western Brazil, which means
“for all;” axé, a southeastern
Brazilian dance with Latin
influences; and a funky
Brazilian hip-hop. Jennifer
Roach, Leawood senior and
member of Capoeira, an Afro-
Brazilian martial art club,
decided to come to the work-
shop to prepare for the party.
“I went to the Carnaval last
year and had a lot of fun,” she
said, “but this year I wanted
to learn more dances before I
The hosts said they
hoped everyone would try
to dance at the Carnaval,
but Roach said it was fun to
watch even if you didn’t
know the steps.
The Carnaval Party at Abe
and Jake’s Landing, 8 E. Sixth
St., draws people from all
over the Midwest, Silva said.
She said that about 100 tick-
ets would be sold today for
$12 at the Student Union
Activities office.
Tonight, the movie “O
Auto da Compadecida,” a
Brazilian comedy, will be
shown at 7 p.m. in 4008

Carver welcomed donations
of any brain with a neurological
or psychiatric disease, and the
collection grew quickly.
"People will very easily donate
brain tissue in their illness
because they feel they can still do
something for others," he said.
With such an important
resource now at the Med
Center, both researchers are
working to make the University
and other local researchers
aware of the collection.
There are no other brain
banks in the region, Newell
said. The closest is in St. Louis.
Though the bank is impor-
tant for providing tissue for var-
ious research projects, insuring
the bank's financial security
drives the researchers' efforts.
Twelve research papers that
use the bank's tissue must be
published in medical journals
before a grant from the
National Institutes of Health
can be applied for, Newell said.
Funding for the bank comes
from the school of medicine,
but it can't cover everything,
she said.
Adding to the bank is a cost-
ly process. A donor's brain is
removed during his or her
autopsy and is cut in half.
One half of the brain has
pathological studies conducted
on it and is preserved with a
compound called formalin,
maintaining it in a wet state,
which keeps the brain pliable,
Newell said.
The other hemisphere is
sliced and then frozen for future
use by researchers.
Brain donations cost about
$650 for all the procedures.
"The last thing we want to do
is tell a donator that this is
going to cost X amount of dol-
lars to do," she said.
Though diseased tissue is
critical for research, she said
the need to compare it to a nor-
mal brain from a person of
around the same age and gen-
der was just as important.
Sometimes getting the
healthy brains is harder than
getting diseased ones, Carver
"It's just hard to get the mes-
sage out to healthy individuals,"
he said.
A new grant from a federal
source would not only pay for
maintenance and donations,
but could provide aid to those
who wish to use the tissue for
research, Newell said.
About $80,000 a year is
needed to cover the cost to
operate the room.
The figure is based on an esti-
mate from a fellow researcher at
Oklahoma State University
with a brain bank that the state
of Oklahoma gives $70,000 a
year to maintain, Newell said.
Awareness of the bank is
increasing. A day after a small
article ran in the Kansas City
Star, Jill Knott, senior project
coordinator of the bank,
received five phone calls from
potential donators.
A researcher from the
University of Missouri-Kansas
City has also expressed interest
in obtaining tissue for his
research, Knott, Rochester,
N.Y., medical student, said.
Both the formalin-preserved
and frozen tissues are available
to researchers.
Tissue from most of the
brains with Parkinson's disease
are not available because
Pahwa still uses them for his
research, she said.
To request tissue, researchers
should contact Knott to discuss
use and shipping. Cost will be
determined on a case-to-case
basis, Knott said.

I was content to stand on
the sidelines as the contro-
versy surrounding Ward
Churchill unfurled. After all,
there’s been sufficient com-
mentary from across the
political spectrum on this
very page, including an excellent editorial by Kyle
Koch (“Politicians nix free speech rights,” The
University Daily Kansan, Feb. 15, 2005).
Then Martha Stewart got out of the slammer.
It was the “lead story” on CNN all day Friday.
America’s leading homemaker came out in the
snow holding lemons and waxed poetic on her
favorite fruit. This was serious news. Later, she
served hot chocolate to frigid reporters stationed
outside her Westchester County estate in New
But wait, it gets even more adorable. In a CNN-
Gallup poll, Americans were asked if they “feel
sympathetic toward Martha Stewart.” The results
reflected that they do.
All the ugly truths of Churchill’s infamous
essay, “‘Some People Push Back: On the Justice of
Roosting Chickens,” hit home as CNN’s cheer-
leading news anchors wrapped Martha Stewart in
ribbons and bows.
As the Colorado professor said in a Feb. 10
interview, “I want the whole goddamned process
to stop, you know?”
Churchill was talking about mass murder. I’m
talking about the mainstream media’s lies of omis-
sion, deflected by celebrity hooey and the friendly
packaging of news used to sell consumers to
Churchill’s views have been called “radical,”
“repugnant” and “pro-terrorist” — by “objective”
reporters working for major American news out-
lets, not just by right-wing attack dogs asking for
the American Indian scholar’s head on a plate.
The Denver Post has published more than 50 arti-
cles on Churchill since Jan. 27. Here’s a quote
from his essat about Sept. 11 that you won’t find
in the Post:
“…vast legions of brown-skinned five-year-olds
sat shivering in the dark, wide-eyed in horror,
whimpering as they expired in the most agonizing
ways imaginable.”
Churchill is describing Iraq under United States
sanctions, where 500,000 sick and hungry chil-
dren perished from 1991 onward. The coverage
nationally follows the same
framework: No substantive
discussion of Churchill’s criti-
cal analysis of U.S. foreign
policy, his inflammatory state-
ments taken for the most part
out of context.
There was no CNN-Gallup
poll asking Americans if they
“feel sympathetic toward the
Iraqi children we starved to death.”
In his letter to the College Republicans of the
University of Colorado on Feb. 1, Gov. Bill Owens
stated that Churchill’s writings are not only “out-
rageous and insupportable, they are at odds with
the facts of history.”
It’s a revealing statement. Owens is essentially
correct: Churchill’s writings are at odds with the
facts of history. The only question is, whose ver-
sion of history?
Entire chapters of history have been deleted
from the public discourse, and the mainstream
media must be held accountable.
Where were the media when the United States
invaded South Vietnam in 1962? Noam Chomsky
has been looking for a reference to this in main-
stream American journalism for 40 years, to no
The chemical weapons we used there in the war
still kill thousands of Vietnamese every year.
Children are born with birth defects, cancers,
tumors and deformities — more lies of omission.
Where were they when President Reagan fun-
neled money, weapons and supplies to right-wing
death squads in Latin America in the 1980s?
Where are they now? They’re outside Martha
Stewart’s estate, sipping hot chocolate.
The funny thing is, Ward Churchill has gotten
real coverage. Sure, the media have brought him
out to hang him from the highest tree, and any
attempt to discuss his specific arguments is quick-
ly shouted down.
But still, millions of viewers have seen him on
“Paula Zahn Now” and “Real Time with Bill
Who knew?
Perhaps Churchill’s inflammatory approach is
the only way to get the message across. And the
message is this: When the president of the
United States goes on national television and
says this is a peaceful nation, he’s not being
entirely truthful.

‘Kansan’ should honor its promise
to cover club and intramural sports
The University of Kansas women’s lacrosse
team finished the first half of its season this past
weekend. This may have come as a surprise to
some in the KU community, as none of the
results from the team’s first six games have
appeared in the Kansan. Some years this lack of
coverage is to be expected as staff sizes can
shrink during the academic year.
This January however, the Kansan wrote that
“one of the largest, most talented sports staffs in
the newspaper’s 100 years of production” would
be giving attention to club sports. To be fair, the
examples given were bowling and ice hockey,
both of whom have gotten coverage.
But what about KU rugby’s performance in the
Big XII Championship down in Norman, Okla., in
late February, or the Kansas men’s lacrosse victo-
ry over K-State last Friday, Lindsey Johnson’s
100th goal for the women’s lacrosse team, results
of the Mardi Gras Tournament for the Ultimate
Frisbee team? All of these teams are not just get-
ting together here and there to play catch.
They are traveling all over the midwest, com-
peting against other universities — in some cases
against varsity squads — representing the
University of Kansas as true student-athletes.
They deserve better.

On Feb. 23, the final pub-
lic debate was held in
Topeka over the proposed
science standards for the
public schools in Kansas. I
was fortunate enough to
find a front row seat and
hear the sometimes interest-
ing, sometimes ludicrous
arguments presented by
both sides.
Strangely, by the night’s end, the only thing I’d
decided was that I didn’t like either side.
First, some background information: The
debate over the science standards is between two
factions. The first faction holds the position that
evolution is the untouchable truth of biology.
It should not be taught alongside anything else
and it should not be questioned in science class-
The second faction supports the teaching of a
theory known as intelligent design alongside the
teaching of evolution in science classes. ID claims
that evolution does not sufficiently explain the cre-
ation of life on earth.
The only reasonable explanation, then, is that
an intelligent creator was behind the origin of
This faction maintains that evolution is an
unproven theory and should not be disguised as
truth for science classes. Therefore, ID should be
taught as well, because it is just as reputable a the-
ory as evolution.
Intelligent design is a compelling theory. There
are a lot of logical and scientific arguments that
support it. I find it very convincing, but ID is sim-
ply not science.
Science deals with only the natural laws and
assumes that those laws run the world with no out-
side help.
Intelligent design, regardless of how convincing
its claims may be, claims that natural laws work
with outside help. That claim takes ID out of the
realm of science, and as such, it should not be
taught in science classrooms.
On the other hand, I do understand the concerns
of parents who don’t want public schools to teach
their children theories that don’t conform to their
faith. A lot of Darwinian thinkers use the theory to
discredit religion.
Highly regarded British biologist and outspoken
atheist Richard Dawkins has compared religion to a
“mind virus” passed down through generations and
has marveled at religion’s ability
to make gullible believers ques-
tion science. Such talk is not
something religious people want
their children hearing in a public
Here at the University of
Kansas, we get to read chalkings
by the Society of Open-Minded
Atheists and Agnostics, featuring
the “Darwin fish” that state the society’s noble goal
of “combating creationism.”
Again, this use of Darwinism in an attempt to dis-
prove religion is insulting to religious people, and
it’s just incorrect.
The existence of God cannot be proven or dis-
proven by science.
Many Christian religions believe that God
works within the natural laws to create life. The
idea that evolution crept along with God as a
supervisor was even accepted by Pope John Paul
II in a 1996 speech.
Indeed, to many people the idea that a divine
hand guided evolution makes much more sense
than the idea that blind luck and random chance
guided it.
I think intelligent design supporters are less
concerned with making the public school system
teach ID than they are in making sure that schools
aren’t turning students into Darwinian atheists.
The Kansas Board of Education needs to reject
the teaching of intelligent design in science class-
Science education should be limited to science
only, not theistic beliefs that extend outside the
realm of the natural world.
At the same time, the Board needs to find a way
to make sure that students understand that evolu-
tion is a very well supported scientific theory, much
like the theory of gravity.
It is not classified as fact because, as biology pro-
fessor Edward Wiley said, “No one has ever experi-
enced evolution directly.” But evolution is not per-
fect and there is still much about the origin of life
that science cannot answer. Students who under-
stand the ideas and limitations of evolution will be
better equipped to fit the theory into their personal
religious beliefs.
If they can’t do that, they’ll likely ignore evolu-
tion altogether. That would defeat the purpose of
science education.

Welcome back
Israel admits
illegal activity
JERUSALEM — Israeli gov-
ernments have helped build and
expand 105 illegal West Bank set-
tlement outposts in a flagrant vio-
lation of official policy and prom-
ises to the United States, an offi-
cial inquiry found yesterday. This
confirms long-standing com-
plaints by the Palestinians.
The study recommended
investigating civil servants
involved in what was described
as systematic deception by sev-
eral government ministries that
funneled large sums of public
funds to the outposts.
However, the report stopped
short of blaming Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon or other leading
politicians, who settlers said
gave them support and money
for outposts in the past decade.
Settlers established the out-
posts — usually starting with a
few mobile homes, a generator
and a water tank — to break up
Palestinian areas and prevent the
creation of a Palestinian state. In
1998, as foreign minister, Sharon
exhorted them to seize West Bank
hilltops and build more outposts.
Today, about 235,000 Israeli
settlers live in some 150 veteran
settlements in the West Bank
and Gaza. About 2,000 live in
the outposts, according to the
Israeli settlement watchdog
group Peace Now. U.S. officials
reiterated Wednesday that they
expected Israel to dismantle the
outposts immediately, in line
with the internationally backed
“road map” peace plan.
However, Deputy Defense
Minister Zeev Boim said Israeli
troops would be busy in coming
months evacuating Jewish set-
tlers from the Gaza Strip and
four veteran West Bank settle-
ments. “I don’t think this report
will be implemented immediate-
ly,” he told Army Radio.
Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice denied that she agreed to
delay the dismantling of outposts
until after the planned Gaza with-
drawal this summer. However, it
remains unclear how much pres-
sure Washington will exert on
Israel to remove the outposts
quickly. Sharon is battling hard-
liners over the planned Gaza pull-
out, and the dismantling of out-
posts could increase his troubles
at home.

cutor Talia Sasson, at Sharon’s

Less than 48 hours after the
Kansas women’s basketball team’s
season-ending loss to Missouri in the
first round of the Big 12 Tournament,
the Jayhawks’ attention has already
turned to next season.
After finishing eighth in the Big
12 Conference this season when
coaches predicted them to finish
11th, the Jayhawks are optimistic
that next season will be special for
the women’s basketball program.
The Jayhawks will return the team
members responsible for more than
80 percent of their scoring from this
season and more than 82 percent of
their rebounding. They return four
starters and could benefit from a year
in coach Bonnie Henrickson’s system.
The optimism for next year’s team
is pinned on two players, junior for-
ward Crystal Kemp and junior guard
Erica Hallman. Kemp, who averaged
13.9 points and 8.8 rebounds per
game this season, will enter next sea-
son as one of the best senior post play-
ers in the Big 12 Conference. Hallman
will return for her senior season after
she averaged 13.1 points and a team-
high 5.1 assists per game this year.
“The fact that me and Erica will
both be seniors is a big plus,” Kemp
said. “We know what to expect and
how to lead the team. We have
learned from other seniors that we
have played with, and know what it
takes to win.”
Henrickson, The Kansas City
Star’s choice for Honorable
Mention Big 12 Women’s Coach of
the Year, said she was pleased with
the progress of her team this season,
but she said team members needed
to work hard in the offseason if they
were going to compete next season.
“We’re very proud, as a staff, of
what our kids did this season,”
Henrickson said. “The growth we
made this season was important for
us. We understand as a group, though,
that we need the same amount of
growth next year that we had this year
from the kids that are returning.”
A key next season will be the
addition of Henrickson’s first
recruiting class. Four new faces —
three freshmen and a junior college
transfer — will join the women’s
team this summer and will do their
part to help Kansas reach the post-
Jennifer Orgas, a 6-foot-2 forward
from Omaha, Neb., was the first
recruit to commit to Henrickson and
her staff.
“She believed in us right away,”
Henrickson said. “She will provide
us with a strong body in the post
with her tenacity and work ethic.”
Orgas will provide some much-
needed depth at the post position
for Kansas. The Jayhawks had only
four post players this season. A sen-
ior at Scutt Catholic High School,
Orgas averaged 13 points and seven
rebounds per game as a junior last
The other three signees are all
guards, including Ivana Catic, a 5-
foot-8 guard from Wheeling, W.V.
Catic is originally from Zrenkanin,
Serbia and Montenegro, and before
arriving in the United States, she
played for the Serbia and Montenegro
Junior National and National teams.
“We’re thrilled to have Ivana join
our program,” Henrickson said.
“She brings enthusiasm and has a
great personality. When she visited
during Late Night and played with
our kids, everyone told us that we
needed her because she was a great
leader. Her international experience
will also be a huge asset.”
The other two recruits are
Shaquina Mosley, a 5-foot-6 guard
from Lancaster, Calif., and
Sophronia Sallard, a 5-foot-10
guard/forward from Syracuse, N.Y.
Mosley is transferring from Central
Arizona College where she averaged
15.2 points, 5.9 rebounds and 6.6
assists and led the Vaqueros to a 33-
3 record during her freshman sea-

Opponent doesn’t matter

Save it for

Keith Langford wants to play tomorrow.
Coach Bill Self knows the senior guard wants
to play and the decision he makes could deter-
mine which I-70 exit Langford spends Final Four
weekend at.
“All the players want to play,” Self said.
“Especially if they are seniors facing the last few
games of their careers.”
But Self can’t let his loyalty to Langford get in
the way of logic. Langford should not, under any
circumstances, play in this weekend’s Big 12
Conference Tournament.
Self knows this. He said Langford’s outlook for
tomorrow was “very doubtful.”
We saw on Sunday how inept the Jayhawks can
be without Langford slashing to the basket. He
needs to drive at full tilt during the NCAA
Tournament and he can only do that with two
strong ankles. He shouldn’t risk that ability this
weekend. The conference tournament simply
doesn’t matter enough.
If No. 9 Kansas wins the Big 12 Tournament —
a goal that would likely involve defeating No. 10
Oklahoma State on Saturday and No. 17
Oklahoma on Sunday — it will probably be the
fourth No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Kentucky, which will play this weekend in the
weaker Southeastern Conference Tournament,
will likely be the top No. 2 seed.
If the Jayhawks lose tomorrow or Saturday,
they will still have a chance to be the top No. 2
seed, with the Wildcats taking the last No. 1 seed.
In reality, there is almost no difference between
the fourth No. 1 seed and the first No. 2 seed.
The NCAA committee uses an S-curve to
decide seedings. In other words, the top-ranked
No. 1 seed will play the last-ranked No. 2 seed.
The last-ranked No. 1 seed will play the top-
ranked No. 2 seed. Kansas is likely to be opposite
Kentucky regardless of this weekend’s results. The
path to that Elite Eight match-up will be a little
tougher for the No. 2 seed. But it’ll be much eas-
ier with Langford at 100 percent.
Of course, losing tomorrow would give the
team its fifth loss in seven games — hardly the
type of momentum a championship contender
needs to make a six-game NCAA Tournament
run. But if Langford plays this weekend, this team
will be the same as the one that dropped three
straight last month, except the starting lineup will
only have nine healthy ankles. Langford’s
absence is a chance for someone to fill Langford’s
ever-changing shoes and get much-needed play-
ing time.
For most players and coaches, con-
ference tournaments are just a bridge
from the regular season to the NCAA
Tournament. But this season, the
Jayhawks have a lot to gain — and
lose — from the outcome of their Big
12 Tournament games. Here are three
things that can be determined from
this weekend’s results:
✦ Where the Jayhawks will be
seeded. If the Jayhawks get to the Big
12 Championship game, their
chances of being rewarded with a No.
1 seed increase significantly.
Although not guaranteed, it is likely
that Kansas would have to beat
Oklahoma State again on Saturday to
play in Sunday’s Big 12
Championship game. If that happens,
it would impress the tournament
selection committee when it makes
the bracket on Sunday.
✦ The health of Keith Langford. It
is likely that Langford won’t see the
court in any of the Jayhawks’ remain-
ing Big 12 games. Earlier this week,
Self said it was more likely that he
wouldn’t play unless he was at least
80 percent. Langford has been receiv-
ing treatment all week, but his status
for the weekend is day-to-day. Don’t
be surprised if Langford sits out this
weekend to get more healing time for
next week’s NCAA Tournament.
✦ The Jayhawks’ momentum
going into March Madness. The
NCAA Tournament is all about hot
teams. The one-loss-and-you’re-out
dynamics of the tournament favors
teams that have momentum going
into the tournament. After losing four
of their last six regular-season games,
the Jayhawks didn’t finish the season
with the amount of momentum that
they would have liked. However, if
they can put together a string of vic-
tories in the Big 12 Tournament, that
could provide them with the neces-
sary momentum to be successful in
the NCAA Tournament.
A significant weekend
Jayhawks looking ahead
Rachel Seymour/KANSAN
Junior guard Erica Hallman looks for an open teammate while coach Bonnie Henrickson shouts from the sideline dur-
ing Kansas’ Big 12 Tournament matchup with Missouri Tuesday. The Jayhawks will rely on Hallman and junior forward
Crystal Kemp next season to make their goal of playing in the postseason happen.
The Kansas men’s basketball team
will pack up and board the bus to
Kansas City, Mo., this afternoon with
the goal of winning the Big 12
Conference Tournament.
But the Jayhawks’ first opponent
before cutting down the nets at
Kemper Arena will be unknown until
late tomorrow night. Kansas will face
the winner of the Kansas State versus
Texas A&M game, played at 6 tonight
in Kemper Arena.
The Jayhawks have defeated both
teams this year during the conference
season — K-State twice. Kansas
defeated both Texas A&M 65-60 and
K-State 72-65 in Allen Fieldhouse.
They also topped the Wildcats 74-65
in Manhattan.
Kansas coach Bill Self said he did-
n’t prefer to play one team over the
other, but he said the two teams
played different styles of basketball.
Texas A&M plays zone and forces
teams to make shots to beat them, he
said. Teams also really have to be able
to handle K-State’s pressure, he said.
“Both will be really good for us to
play for preparation, but I think both
teams match up and could give us
problems,” he said.
Self said he liked the idea of not
having a lot of time to prepare for the
team’s opponent because it would be
good preparation for next week’s
NCAA Tournament.
The Aggies could be playing for a
NCAA Tournament bid, he said.
“A&M has a ton to play for,” he
said. “I think that two wins in the
tourney, especially if one of them is
against Kansas, would probably get
them in the tournament.”
Because of the in-state rivalry, Self
said that K-State also would have
plenty of motivation.
If the Jayhawks face the Wildcats at
6 p.m. tomorrow, it would be the third
time this season the two teams have
faced each other. Kansas has beaten a
team three times in one season before.
Last year, it beat Missouri twice in the
regular season and then again in the
second round of the Big 12
The Aggies already have one victo-
ry against the Wildcats. They beat
them 65-51 in College Station, Texas,
on Jan. 22.
But Self said the opponent wasn’t
important. Playing well and securing
a good NCAA Tournament seed was.
“My whole thing is, we better go
play well, and if we play well, that will
certainly enhance our chances of
being a higher seed,” Self said. “But if

foe presents
“Both will be really
good for us to play for
preparation, but I think
both teams match up and
could give us problems.”

Kemper’s last stand for Big 12
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After a two-
year vacation, the Big 12 Conference
Men’s Basketball Tournament returns
to Kansas City, Mo., today.
Kemper Arena used to play host to
the Big Eight Men’s Basketball
Tournament, but when Texas, Texas
A&M, Texas Tech and Baylor joined
the league, southern division teams
lobbied for the tournament site to be
Kansas City held the first six Big 12
Tournaments, but then it was moved
to American Airlines Arena in Dallas.
With the tournament back in north-
ern territory, coaches and players used
media day yesterday to voice their
opinions on where the tournament
should be held in the future.
“We are excited to be back in
Kansas City,” Nebraska coach Barry
Collier said. “Not only for Husker
fans, but for the people in Kansas City
as well. The people here put on a great
tournament and provide a great
atmosphere for our athletes.”
The atmosphere that Kemper Arena
provides is unique. History and tradi-
tion run through every room in the
Both the men’s and women’s Final
Fours have been held here, and so
have countless NCAA regional and
sub-regional tournaments.
It used to be home to the Kansas
City Kings, of the NBA, and the
Kansas City Scouts, of the NHL.
Fans have traveled from all across
the country to watch games here, and
players always seem to be greeted with
open arms.
“Kansas City has always put on one
of the best tournaments in the coun-
try,” Texas A&M coach Billy Gillispie
said. “The hospitality is unmatched.”
Gillispie said his only previous trip
to Kemper Arena came as an assistant
coach at Baylor, and his greatest regret
was only getting to stay for a day. The
Bears lost their opening round game
that year.
Iowa State senior forward Jared
Homan agreed with Gillispie, because
Iowa State fans come to Kansas City
in droves, but only a few showed up in
“It’s a great place to play,” he said.
“Especially if you’re an Iowa Stater.
We travel very well to this venue since
we are so close.”
If fan support were the only thing
that went into selecting a host site,
Kansas City might win every year, but
that simply isn’t the case.
The Big 12 championship football
game rotates venues, and a number of
cities want a piece of the Big 12
Tournament, like they do the football
championship game.
“I think Dallas, Oklahoma City,
San Antonio and Kansas City would
all be very good sites,” Gillispie said.
“You’d always like it to be close to
home, but not everyone is always
going to be happy with the place-
Another reason the tournament
was moved away from Kansas City is
because Kemper Arena has become
old and outdated.
The outer concourse is too narrow
and concession stand lines are always
backed up. Birds always seem to be
flying around the top of the stadium,
and the atmosphere outside the arena
does not compete with Dallas’ West
End district.
The NCAA said it would no longer
hold a sub-regional event in Kemper
Arena, and the Big 12 Tournament is
already committed to Dallas in 2006
and Oklahoma City in 2007.
To solve this problem, Kansas City
plans to build Sprint Arena, which
will be a state-of-the-art facility locat-
ed in the heart of downtown.
Rumors have spread that once
Sprint Arena is completed, the Big 12
Tournament will return to Kansas City
for good.
“The state of Texas did a great job
with the tournament the last couple of
years,” Colorado coach Ricardo
Patton said. “But I think Kansas City
is the home of the Big 12 tourna-
Only time will tell if that kind of
talk turns out to be a reality, but most
coaches are in favor of moving the
tournament site each year.
“I think the way it has rotated so far
has worked,” Gillispie said. “There’s
really no reason to mess with it.”

Some coaches like Kansas City best
while others prefer rotating locations
After serving as the site of the first
six Big 12 Conference tournaments,
Kemper Arena will play host to its
seventh and last Big 12 tournament
starting today. Though a new arena
in Kansas City, Mo., may bring the
tournament back to the city, the
teams will meet elsewhere for the
next two years.

Tennis team sees Nebraska as challenge
The Kansas tennis team,
which is 2-7 overall, 1-1 Big 12
Conference, will face Nebraska,
with a 12-2 overall, 3-2 Big 12
record, at noon Saturday at the
Robinson courts in Lawrence.
The Cornhuskers will enter
the match ranked 38th in the
country, according to the
Intercollegiate Tennis
If the Jayhawks hope to
establish any sort of success this
weekend, they will need the
help of emerging doubles star
Ashley Filberth.
“It is all up to us willing to
stay out there for five hours,”
Filberth, Kansas City, Mo.,
sophomore, said. “To beat a
team like Nebraska, we are
going to have to have focus
throughout the entire match.”
One advantage that rests in
favor for the Jayhawks this
weekend is the most recent
meeting between both schools,
which saw Kansas coming out
victorious last spring.
But Kansas has lost seven of
its last eight matches.
After losing seven straight
matches, the Jayhawks ended
their dry spell with a victory
against Iowa State Saturday.
In fact, the Jayhawks were
flawless, winning every match.
“The way we won was a step
in the right direction,” Filberth
said. “Even though we lost to
Iowa the next day, there is no
feel of defeat in us.”
Before the victory in Ames,
Iowa, last week, the team held a
“We got our thoughts in
order and we’re all in a much
better mind frame now,”
Filberth said.
Kansas has won two of the
last three doubles points, with
victories against Utah and Iowa
Filberth has vastly improved
the level of her game, especially
in doubles, assistant coach
Frank Polito said. “She is one
of our best doubles players on
our team,” he said.
Polito said he commended
Filberth on her movement on
the court and her shot selection.
But Filberth is very open
about the improvements she
needs to make to be a more
effective player.
“Something I need to work
on is playing more offensive,”
Filberth said. “Sometimes I’m
too defensive. I need to dictate
points better.”
In doubles, Filberth and jun-
ior Christine Skoda are 4-2 this
year, including a victory against
No. 13 Texas.
Filberth said she attributed
her serves and volleys strengths
in her doubles game.
“I feel more confident up at
the net than I do at the base-
line,” Filberth said.
Filberth’s versatility has
added to her overall presence
on the team. As a freshman,
Filberth experienced the tran-
sition of competing in college.
Having made a huge impact
already in doubles, Filberth is
constantly making strides and is
gradually becoming more
And that’s exactly what Polito
wants from the players, he said.
“We need to play a more
aggressive style,” Polito said.
“We need to finish points at the
On Saturday, Kansas will be
tested throughout the day
against a talented Nebraska
“Last year, we beat them,”
Filberth said. “I think we are
ready for the challenge. We are
looking forward to it.”
The match against
Nebraska will mark the first
match of the season at the
Robinson courts.

Royals owe victory to pitchers
SURPRISE, Ariz. — Jose Lima pitched out of
trouble in each of his three innings to lead the
Kansas City Royals over the Seattle Mariners 6-0
Lima, the Royals’ only significant free-agent
signee this offseason, gave up five singles and
walked three. Lima used double plays in the first
and third innings to stop Seattle rallies.
The Mariners loaded the bases with one out
in the second, but Lima struck out Jamal
Strong and retired Ichiro Suzuki on a grounder
to first baseman Mike Sweeney to end the
“I got the bases loaded, but that didn’t bother
me,” Lima said. “I’m a better pitcher when I’m in
Rookie right-hander Denny Bautista replaced
Lima and limited the Mariners to one hit over
three innings while striking out four.
The Royals sent eight men to the plate in a
four-run first off Mariners rookie right-hander
Felix Hernandez. Two of the runs were unearned
after first baseman Richie Sexson made an error,
the first of four Seattle miscues.
Angel Berroa, the 2003 AL Rookie of the Year,
led the Royals with three hits — two doubles —
two RBIs and two runs scored.

Rain cancels game,
not pitcher’s play
JUPITER, Fla. — When the St.
Louis Cardinals’ spring training
game against the New York
Mets rained out yesterday, Jeff
Suppan simply took his act
The right-hander threw a 60-
pitch simulated game in an
indoor batting cage at the
team’s complex, simulating
almost everything.
Suppan did his normal pre-
game stretching routine, wore
his uniform and threw warmup
pitches between innings —
everything but the roar of the
crowd to make his work day
more productive.
“I wore my uniform so it’s as
real as I can make it, because
every game is important in
spring training,” he said.
The lack of an opponent and
audience were clear drawbacks.
“Being on a mound with adren-
aline, I missed that,” Suppan

Device repels sharks
as it reassures divers
Editor’s note: This is a regular

The fear of coming into con-
tact with a shark can make
some leery about braving the
But new technology aims to
help those terrified of shark
attacks, though experts say it
will benefit surfers and commer-
cial divers more.
In March 2002, Sea Change
Technology of Adelaide,
Australia, completed the first
manufacture and distribution of
the Shark Shield. The shield costs
$469 and establishes a barrier
around divers, swimmers and
surfers using electronic pulses that
cause discomfort to the sensory
system and muscles of a shark.
All sharks have a sensory sys-
tem on the side of their snouts.
The system of gel-filled pores
detects electronic pulses in the
open water. Sharks detect food
this way because the heartbeat
of a seal, fish or human emits a
certain frequency of electric
pulse through the water.
The Natal Sharks Board,
which developed the precursor
to the Shark Shield, found that
a certain electrical pulse causes
discomfort and spasms to the
muscles of sharks.
Dave Bach, dive master and
director of training at the Scuba
Shack, 1045 New Jersey St., said
all that was left for Sea Change
to do to Shark Shield was to
create a device easily equipped
for ocean-going people that
would create this barrier of the
determined frequency.
“It’s comparable to a shock col-
lar for dogs. After a shark has been
shocked once, he’s not going to
penetrate that field again.”
Eric Schaumburg, Prairie
Village senior, said he’d be more
likely to try scuba diving with
the new technology.
“I would like the idea of
encountering and seeing sharks
if I felt well protected,” he said.
Fear of coming into contact
with sharks has kept prospec-
tive divers from braving the
open water. Bach said those
nervous feelings usually fade
with the first dive.
“New divers have fears of the
unknown,” he said. “But once
you get down there, it’s so inspir-
ing and beautiful most people
I’ve trained lose the uneasiness.”
As for Shark Shield’s use for
recreational scuba divers, he
said he thinks it is unnecessary.
“There is such a huge miscon-
ception with sharks created by
Hollywood. In warm waters
down around the Bahamas and
Florida, you don’t see shark
attacks happening to divers.”
The shark attacks, he said,
usually come from great whites
and tiger sharks in colder waters
along the West Coast.
Bach said he would never use
the device on a recreational dive.
“For commercial divers, who
are working and not necessarily
paying attention to their sur-
roundings, or for surfers, who
have the tendency to look like
seals from below, the Shark
Shield is great,” he said. “But for
recreational scuba divers, the
idea is usually to encounter and
swim around with these crea-
tures rather than to repel them.”

✦ Freshman C.J. Giles has-
n’t seen much court time since
injuring his ankle on Jan. 9
against Kentucky. The ankle
injury came at an impromptu
time, as it has hurt his ability
to play his way back into the
line-up. Self said Giles would
probably be starting if he had-
n’t sat out for six weeks with
the stress fracture.
“It’s nobody’s fault he got
hurt. It’s not his fault. He has
come back and he has done
everything we’ve asked him to
do,” Self said. “But when you
are practicing three times a
week for an hour and 45 min-
utes, it’s not like, ‘OK, C.J.,
we’re going to spend the next
30 minutes getting C.J. ready.’
That is not how it works.”
Self said Giles needed to get
more repetition to be effective
in the Jayhawks’ offense.
“We’ve talked about that a
thousand times,” Self said.
“But he is going to be a really
good player. He is just the odd
man out right now because of
✦ There is a possibility that
three ACC teams—North
Carolina, Duke and Wake
Forest—could receive No. 1
seeds in the NCAA
Though he did not disagree
with the possibility, Self said
he thought it wasn’t likely.
“You look at it, and all three
of those teams have done a lot
this year,” he said. “I don’t
think that will happen. I don’t
know if it should. I don’t know
if you finish third in the league,
if you should get a No. 1 seed.”
✦ The Jayhawks are likely
to be seeded in Oklahoma
City, Okla., for the first round
of the NCAA Tournament.
Two years ago, the Jayhawks
visited Oklahoma City as a
first-round site and brought
along a herd of Jayhawks fans.
Last year, they played the
first round in Kansas City,
Mo., which gave them a home-
court advantage.
Self said he would like the
Jayhawks to play the first round
in Oklahoma City because it
would allow the fans to follow
them. But he said it wasn’t as
big of a deal as playing in
Kansas City, Mo., last year.
“From a fans standpoint
and a financial standpoint
with families, we would like to
play in Oklahoma City,” Self
said. “We would welcome that
and be excited about that.”
✦ Self replaced sophomore
guard J.R. Giddens in the
starting lineup on Sunday with
senior guard Mike Lee. It is
likely, though, that both
guards will start tomorrow. In
the absence of Keith Langford,
Self said it was likely that
Giddens and Lee would fill in
the starting lineup. Junior
guard Jeff Hawkins also could
see significant minutes.

sports Thursday, March 10, 2005 the university daily kansan 5b
Simien given top AP honors
Roy Williams first saw the sev-
enth grader from Leavenworth,
he made a point to introduce
himself to Wayne Simien.
And on that day nine years
ago, the former Kansas coach
began what might be the longest
recruiting period of any player
in Jayhawk history.
It was certainly one of the
most fruitful.
By the time Simien was a
high school senior and widely
recognized as one of the finest
prospects in the area, he had
attended far too many Roy
Williams basketball camps for
any other school in the country
to stand a chance of signing him
away from Kansas.
Now nearly 6-foot-9, Simien
is concluding one of the finest
careers in school history. And in
a year when the Big 12 was bris-
tling with talent, Simien was the
unanimous choice as The
Associated Press’ Big 12 player
of the year. Every member of a
panel of 24 sports writers who
regularly cover the league gave
their vote to the soft-spoken
and deeply religious senior.
Almost equally effective
under the basket as he was on
the perimeter, Simien led the
Big 12 this year in both scoring
(19.4 points per game) and
rebounding (11.1). He was the
only Big 12 player to average a
“He is the best player in the
country,” Iowa State coach
Wayne Morgan said.
Another runaway winner was
Oklahoma’s Taj Gray for AP Big
12 newcomer of the year. The 6-
8 junior averaged 14.7 points
and 7.8 rebounds for the
Sooners, who tied Kansas for
the Big 12 regular-season title.
He was also second in the
league with a field goal percent-
age of .570. The panel gave him
every vote but one, which went
to teammate Terrell Everett.
Chosen as AP Big 12 fresh-
man of the year was Texas point
guard Daniel Gibson, who
polled 14 votes to 10 for Baylor
guard Aaron Bruce. Gibson was
eighth in the league in assists,
fifth in steals and vital in help-
ing the Longhorns stay afloat
despite the loss of key players to
injuries and academic concerns.
Simien is certain to get consid-
eration for national player of the
year. He had perhaps his finest
outing in what may have been the
best game of the Big 12 season, a
two-point Kansas win over
Oklahoma State last month. In
that thriller, he had 12 rebounds
and a career-high 32 points.
“We kept throwing bodies at
him and he kept hitting,” said
Oklahoma State’s Joey Graham,
who along with Simien was an
unanimous first-team AP All-
Big 12 selection.
“He is the best big man in the
country,” Oklahoma State coach
Eddie Sutton said that night. “He
is a great basketball player.”
Two of his best games this
season came against Colorado,
when he totaled 48 points and
28 rebounds.
“Wayne Simien is one of my all-
time favorite players,” Colorado
coach Ricardo Patton said. “I
wish we didn’t have to play them.
I really, really like him.”
The 6-9 Gray came into the
league as one of the most
sought-after junior college stars
in the country and was never a
disappointment as the Sooners
went on to capture a piece of
their first league championship
since 1989.
“He’s expanded his game
offensively. I think he did better
offensively early than we antici-
pated,” Oklahoma coach Kelvin
Sampson said. “Taj has been our
best player. Taj has been the
man for us.”

✦ Today's Birthday
You may discover this year that you
don't like being in your box. You need
more room, so stretch your imagina-
tion and make it happen.
✦ Aries (March 21-April 19) Today is a 6.
Spend as much time as you can in
thoughtful meditation. Prepare your-
self for the upcoming battle by surren-
dering to the higher good.
✦ Taurus (April 20-May 20 ) Today is an
8. The more you give to those in need,
within practical limits, the more comes
back around to you. Keep the goodies
in circulation.
✦ Gemini (May 21-June 21) Today is a 5.
If you feel dominated, maybe it's
because you're not standing up for
yourself. You got yourself into this
mess, and you can get yourself out.
✦ Cancer (June 22-July 22) Today is a 9.
Make the contact even if you can't stay
as long as you'd like, or do as much as
you'd planned. There's much to be
gained by making the effort.
✦ Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Today is a 4.
You're reputed to be lucky, but it never
really hurts to learn the skills. That
takes work. Don't let yourself get lazy.
✦Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Today is a 6.
You may decide to change your plans,
so hold off on a decision. You'll get a
lot of new ideas over the next few
✦ Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Today is a 5.
You're wise to ride the wave where it
goes, and not try to control it. Your job
is to have the skills required, and let
the spirit move through you.
✦Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Today is a 9.
In-depth conversations are good. But,
there are other ways to reinforce the
love you build within the family. Like
favorite meals, for example.
✦ Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Today is
a 5. It may be hard to hear, with every-
body talking. Insist that they take turns,
and that the others practice listening.
Otherwise, the meeting's a waste of your
✦ Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today is an
8. The more you learn, the more
opportunities open up for you. Don't
worry about them now. Immerse your-
self in the inquiry.
✦ Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Today is a 5.
Your income looks good, but also
unstable. Don't spend much until
you're sure you know what your
expenses will be. Better safe than sorry.
✦ Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Today is a
9. The person who's giving you the
most trouble now is actually your
guru. He or she is pointing out what-
ever scares you most. Come to peace
with that, and you win.

Canseco, Jason Giambi, Mark
McGwire and four other base-
ball players were subpoenaed
yesterday to testify before a con-
gressional committee investigat-
ing the sport’s steroids policy.
Curt Schilling, Sammy Sosa,
Rafael Palmeiro and Frank
Thomas also were subpoenaed
to appear at the March 17 hear-
ing of the House Government
Reform Committee along with
players’ association head
Donald Fehr, baseball executive
vice presidents Rob Manfred
and Sandy Alderson and San
Diego general manager Kevin
Canseco, Fehr and Manfred
had agreed to testify. Manfred
will speak on behalf of baseball
commissioner Bud Selig.
“The remaining witnesses,
however, made it clear—either
by flatly rejecting the invitation
to testify or by ignoring our
repeated attempts to contact
them—they had no intention of
appearing before the commit-
tee,” committee chairman Rep.
Tom Davis and Rep. Henry
Waxman, the ranking
Democrat, said in a statement.
“The committee will conduct
a thorough, fair, and responsible
investigation. It is important the
American people know the facts
on baseball’s steroid scandal.
And it is important that all
Americans, especially children,
know about the dangers of drug
use. We need to better under-
stand the steps MLB is taking to
get a handle on the steroid
issue, and whether news of
those steps is reaching
America’s youth.”
Stanley Brand, a lawyer for
the commissioner’s office, wrote
to the committee on Tuesday
saying the hearing and what he
termed “overly expansive” doc-
ument requests “present signifi-
cant constitutional and institu-
tional concerns about the
underlying validity and propri-
etary of the committee’s inquiry.
“It is not clear to us how the
committee’s jurisdiction encom-
passes the privately negotiated
drug policy,” Brand wrote,
adding that the committee was
requesting “highly private and
sensitive information.”
“The right to the privacy of
this information outweighs any
asserted interest in the `health
problems stemming from the
use of steroids and other per-
formance-enhancing drugs,’”
Brand wrote.
Brand said the committee
request went to the unprece-
dented and destructive length of
seeking actual testing results
and showed no consideration
for the legitimate privacy con-
cerns of MLB, the MLBPA,
individual players and other
members of the bargaining unit.
Another congressional hear-
ing on steroids is scheduled for
tomorrow, when the House
Energy and Commerce subcom-
mittee will hear from witnesses,
including labor lawyers from the
commissioner’s office and the
NFL, and representatives of the
NCAA and the U.S. Anti-
Doping Agency.
“We’re trying to get to the
bottom of the steroid problem,”
Rep. Cliff Stearns said.
Stearns, chairman of the
House Commerce, Trade and
Consumer Protection subcom-
mittee, said Selig was invited to
speak at the hearing but
“We’re trying to understand
whether legislation is needed,”
he said. “We’re obviously disap-
pointed that Selig did not want
to show.”
Diver plunges into comeback
Jenny Roberts has a lot to be
proud of as the Zone D
Regional Diving Meet
approaches tomorrow.
Roberts is coming off an
injury that caused her to sit out
her senior year of high school
and take a redshirt with the
Kansas swimming and diving
team her freshman year of col-
lege. During a high school div-
ing meet, Roberts was complet-
ing a back two-and-a-half dive
when she came out wrong. She
had several back injuries that
halted her diving career for two
This year, Roberts has made a
comeback in the college diving
scene. She is one of three divers
on the team to qualify for the
Zone D meet, an accomplish-
ment she is proud of.
“I’m really excited,” Roberts
said. “That’s what this year has
been all about.”
Sophomore Shelby Noonan
and junior Casey Topol also
qualified, but Roberts will be the
only Jayhawk at the meet in
College Station, Texas because
of Noonan’s recent injury at the
Big 12 Conference Swimming
and Diving Championships.
Topol will not attend for aca-
demic reasons.
Roberts could receive a bid to
the NCAA Championships next
week. Diving coach Eric Elliot
explained that usually the top
five winners are invited.
“I’d be thrilled to see Jenny
place in the top 12,” Elliot said.
“Top five would be great, but
she’d have to be completely on,
and hit everything.”
The Zone D meet is the only
road to the NCAA
Championships for lower
Midwest region collegiate
divers. Roberts said that it
would be huge if she qualified
for NCAA Championships, but
she didn’t think it was likely.
“I’m really excited,” Roberts
said, “but this is more of an
Elliot also explained that this
meet is a diver’s one shot to
make it to the NCAA
Championships, and divers had
to qualify for the Zone D meet
Roberts said that getting to
experience the meet was an
accomplishment in itself
because of her high school
injury, and coach Elliot agreed.
“Of course we want a good
performance,” Elliot said, “but I
want her to have fun, and to get
the experience so that she’ll
have it for next year.
Although the meet starts
tomorrow, Roberts will not be
performing until Saturday, when
she will compete in the one-
meter competition.
She will complete six dives.
Two of the dives will be front
dives, two will be back dives,
one will be inward and one will
be a reverse dive. The divers’
scores are compiled by multiply-
ing the judges’ scores by the
degree of difficulty of the dive.
Elliot said that there were
always quality divers at the
Zone D meet, but each year new
divers came to the meet.
“At this level, anybody could
get there,” Elliot said, “but you
have to have a good meet.”
Both Elliot and Roberts said
they were disappointed that
Noonan couldn’t make the trip
with them.
“It’s really disappointing
about Shelby,” Elliot said,
“because she was diving really
He said that this is the first
year that there have been a sig-
nificant number of spots avail-
able in the Zone D meet and he
wished more Jayhawks could
have taken advantage of the
Injuries aside, Elliot said he
was looking forward to the meet
tomorrow, as was Roberts.
She said she was excited to be
making her debut in champi-
onship diving after her two-year
“I’m a better diver because of
my injury,” Roberts said, “men-
tally, physically, and personally.”
