Kansas coach Mark Mangino dismissed sopho-
more running back John Randle from the Kansas
football team after he was charged with one count
of battery yesterday.
Randle pleaded not guilty at
Douglas County District Court.
A $1,000 bond was set and, as
of yesterday afternoon, he had
not been released from the
Douglas County Jail.
“We will continue to support
and help John in any way we
possibly can,” Mangino said.
“We have encouraged him to
continue his education at KU. If
he decides to do so, we will
honor his scholarship.”
Randle was arrested last year for attempted
theft, disorderly conduct and use of a fake drivers
license and was suspended for the first half of the
team’s season-opening game against Tulsa. Randle
served two days in jail for that incident and was
on probation when the current incident occurred.
The prosecution suggested that bond prohibit
Randle from consuming alcohol entirely, but the
judge could not grant that request.
As conditions of the bond, Randle can’t contact
anyone listed as a witness on the police report.
Lawrence police arrested Randle early Sunday
morning outside of It’s Brothers Bar and Grill,
1105 Massachusetts St. Randle has been banned
from the bar as a condition of his bond.
Between 1:51 a.m. and 1:55 a.m. a 21-year-old
man and Randle were involved in an argument
inside the bar, said Sgt. Dan Ward, Lawrence
Police Department spokesman.
The argument continued outside after the bar
closed. A police officer witnessed Randle punch
the other man, Ward said.
The officer approached the scene, attended to
the man and arrested the suspect without inci-
dent, according to a police report.
Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical treated
the man at the scene and transported him to
Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Ward said. The
man had injuries on his nose and cheek.
The nature of the argument was unknown,
Ward said. Alcohol was listed as a contributing
factor on the police report.
Randle was arrested in November 2003 on
charges of domestic battery and criminal damage.

The exhibit, which opens

between Science City in Union
Station in Kansas City, Mo.,
and the University of Kansas
Natural History Museum in
Dyche Hall, located just south
of the Kansas Union.

to a headset.

Businesses have to prepare for the rush of fans
and buy accordingly. Final Four merchandise isn’t
usually displayed until after the Jayhawks win
their Elite Eight game.
“We buy on ‘if and when,’” Trompeter said. If
the Jayhawks make it past the Elite Eight, the
store will have shirts on order, he said. But if they
don’t make it that far, shirts won’t be ordered, he
Stores buy on a contingency basis, meaning
that they place an order for shirts only if the KU
men’s basketball team makes it to the Final Four.
Big 12 Conference championship shirts are
bought with the same plan in mind, but in small-
er amounts.
Few people buy Big 12 shirts, but many buy
Final Four shirts. The Sports Dome, 924
Massachusetts St., had to mark down its Big 12
shirts from $18 to $12.50, owner Brian Hoffman
“We only bought about two dozen Big 12
championship shirts, and only sold a few,”
Hoffman said. “Buyers look at it as ‘Who really
cares about the Big 12?’”
Some students said it was too expensive to buy
shirts for the Big 12 championship and each
round of the tournament.
“I don’t want to waste my money on a Big 12
shirt,” Lisa Kauffman, Weston, Mo., freshman,
said. “We don’t make it to the Final Four every
Jared Johanning, Lawrence freshman, said he
would wait to see how far the Jayhawks went in
the tournament before he would buy a shirt.

Procrastination purchases such as Johanning’s
make it hard on stores to estimate orders.
“We don’t sell a lot of Big 12 or Sweet 16
shirts,” said Toni Retonde, store manager for
Jayhawk Bookstore. “It’s funny because, often, we
see people buy backwards.”
People will often wait, and if the University
makes it to the Final Four, people will buy the
shirts they have neglected to that point, Retonde
said. Customers will buy a Big 12 championship
shirt, a Sweet 16 and a Elite Eight shirt once the
team has made it to the Final Four, she said.

FORT SCOTT— Gov. Kathleen
Sebelius surveyed Fort Scott’s historic
downtown area yesterday, studying
the damage caused by a roaring, wind-
whipped fire.
The blaze that started Friday after-
noon destroyed nine buildings, and
Fort Scott Mayor Gary Billionis said
two or three others located near those
buildings may also have suffered dam-
“This is a historic area,” Sebelius
said after returning to Topeka. “The
oldest building is about 142 years old.
It’s a real piece of Kansas history lost
in this fire. But hopefully we can help
them rebuild.”
Sebelius was joined by state Sen.
Jim Barone (D-Frontenac) and two
state representatives along with the
state fire marshal. After Sebelius flew
over the area in a helicopter with the
mayor, the contingent walked through
the still smoldering downtown with
city officials and federal fire investiga-
Sebelius said the group wanted to
help connect the community with dif-
ferent state and federal funding
sources. Damage is estimated at $10
In some cases, the floors of the two
and three-story buildings collapsed,
leaving just the exterior shells of the
100- to 140-year-old structures.
“We are interested in maintaining
the historical integrity of the area,”
Billionis said. “Whatever is rebuilt,
we are going to make sure it main-
tains that integrity. We can’t recon-
struct an 1863 building, but we can
put a building in here that at least
looks like it belongs.”
Before the city can clear the rub-
ble and begin rebuilding, a response
team from the Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
must finish its investigation. The
group has conducted interviews, but
it must wait for a structural engineer
from Wichita to evaluate the build-
ings in the fire-damaged block
before entering them.
Fire ruins historical sites
New exercise guide questioned
WASHINGTON — Sixty to 90 min-
utes of exercise every day. That’s what
the government now suggests.
Even people working out at the
gym say most folks won’t consider
that, and the experts behind the gov-
ernment’s recommendation say 30
minutes a day is enough for most.
Paul Steinkoenig, 45, of Arlington,
Va., now works out about 90 minutes
a day three days a week. Sixty or 90
minutes every day “sounds higher than
certainly what the average American is
going to consider,” he said.
“I think 60 minutes would be a lit-
tle much for me,” added Joseph
Allwein, 84. Allwein said he biked,
rowed or walked for 30 minutes five
days a week.
The panel of doctors and scientists
that developed the recommendations
put an emphasis on getting 30 min-
utes of exercise. Its 25 pages of rec-
ommendations were scaled down to
three when they were released as part
of the government’s new dietary
guidelines in January. Those guide-
lines gave equal billing to the 60- and
90-minute suggestions.
“There’s an enormous need to clarify
that,” said Russell Pate, a panel member
and professor of exercise science at the
University of South Carolina school of
public health. “I have no doubt that if
we all met that 30-minute guideline,
we’d have a lot fewer of us that have
weight problems.”
The guidelines are being used to
update the government’s food pyra-
mid, which is due out this spring. This
is what they say about exercise:
✦ People need 30 minutes of phys-
ical activity on most days to ward off
chronic disease.
✦ To prevent unhealthy weight
gain, people should spend 60 minutes
on physical activity on most days.
✦ Previously overweight people
who have lost weight may need 60 to
90 minutes of exercise to keep the
weight off.
Weight is an issue throughout the
guidelines, which tell people how to
eat to be healthy. The guidelines advise
eating fewer calories, more fruits, veg-
etables and whole grains. People
should also drink more lowfat milk, eat
less fat and salt and get more exercise.
The number of overweight and
obese Americans is growing at an
alarming rate, the panel said.
“Because we have 60 percent of
Americans overweight and 30 percent
obese, we have a lot of people trying to
lose weight and keep it off, and we
know how difficult it is to lose weight
and keep it off,” said Dr. Xavier Pi-
Sunyer, a panel member and director of
obesity research at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt
Hospital Center in New York.
About two-thirds of Americans each
year try to start regular exercise pro-
grams, according to a 2004 Associated
Press-Ipsos poll. That contrasts with
how many stay with it. Nearly 40 per-
cent of adults said they didn’t do phys-
ical activity during leisure time in 2002
data from the federal Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
People trying to fit the new exercise
advice into their day don’t have to
start all at once. It’s fine to break your
activity into bouts of 10 or 15 min-
utes. The idea is still to do at least 30
minutes of moderate physical activity.
And it doesn’t have to be walking.
The panel gave several examples of
moderate exercise: Hiking, light gar-
dening or yard work, dancing, golf,
bicycling, a light workout of weight
lifting. Stretching also counts.
More vigorous activity is even bet-
ter, the committee said. That could
include running or jogging at 5 miles
an hour, walking at 4.5 miles an hour,
bicycling at 10 miles an hour, swim-
ming, aerobics, heavy yard work such
as chopping wood, more vigorous
weight lifting or playing basketball.
“The idea here is small steps,” said
Eric Hentges, director of the
Agriculture Department’s Center for
Nutrition Policy and Promotion, which
helped write the guidelines. “Get the 30
minutes first, because independent of
any of the other aspects, the 30 minutes
alone will have benefits.”
WASHINGTON — At first glance,
abortion and bankruptcy might not
seem to have much in common.
Except in Congress, where partisan
divisions on one have long held up
legislation affecting the other.
That’s soon to end, as Republicans
begin converting last fall’s election
gains into this year’s bills for President
Bush to sign. In all, the GOP gained
four seats last November and now
holds 55.
So far, the new Congress has sent
Bush only one substantive measure, a
bill designed to curtail multimillion-
dollar class action lawsuits. The bank-
ruptcy bill, eight years in the making,
is expected to follow next month.
Democrats contend both bills are
the result of partisan compromise
over several years.
Democrats agree that far more con-
tentious and unpredictable battles lie
just ahead, over tax cuts, judicial
appointments and Social Security.
“Working for a budget that lives by
America’s morals instead of mocking
them won’t be easy. The Washington
Republicans will fight us every step of
the way,” Senate Democratic Leader
Harry Reid of Nevada said yesterday
as the GOP tax and spending plan
reached the Senate floor.
Conservative Republicans in the
House no longer view the Senate as
the chamber where their favorite bills
go to die.
“The amount of legislation that’s
passing is pretty big,” said U.S. Rep.
Tom Cole, R-Okla. “I think we’ll get
an energy bill, a highway bill and
maybe” legislation to resolve asbestos
The Senate put its new conserva-
tive face on display last week on sev-
eral issues.
After two years of dodging a vote
on a Democratic call for a minimum
wage increase, the Republicans
allowed one to go ahead and pre-
For political purposes the GOP
advanced its own minimum wage
increase. It was coupled with several
business-backed provisions unpalat-
able to organized labor, and it, too,
was defeated.
The add-ons included an option for
employees to work up to 80 hours
over two weeks, including more than
40 in either one, without qualifying
for overtime pay; a provision restrict-
ing the ability of states to raise the
minimum wage for restaurant
employees, and a waiver of age and
overtime rules for workers in some
small businesses now covered.
An attempt to open the Arctic
National Wildlife Refuge to oil
drilling, killed on a vote of 52-48 in
2003, was folded into the Senate
Republicans’ budget that recently
cleared committee. Democrats will
attempt to strip it out this week in the
full Senate.

According to the plans, regard-

the chapter will now become a dry
house. The chapter will draft its
own alcohol policy and include
mandatory penalties for violations,
such as long-term suspension of

ruled yesterday that California’s
ban on gay marriage is unconstitu-
tional — a legal milestone that, if
upheld on appeal, would open the
way for the most populous state to
follow Massachusetts in allowing
same-sex couples to wed.
Judge Richard Kramer of San
Francisco County’s trial-level
Superior Court likened the ban to
laws requiring racial segregation
in schools, and said there appears
to be “no rational purpose” for
denying marriage to gay couples.
The ruling came in response to
lawsuits filed by the city of San
Francisco and a dozen gay cou-
ples a year ago after the California
Supreme Court halted a four-
week series of same-sex marriages
started by Mayor Gavin Newsom.
The opinion had been eagerly
awaited because of San
Francisco’s historical role as a
gay rights battleground.
Gay marriage supporters
hailed the ruling as a historic
development akin to the 1948
state Supreme Court decision that
made California the first state to
legalize interracial marriage.
“Today’s ruling is an impor-
tant step toward a more fair and
just California that rejects dis-
crimination and affirms family
values for all California fami-
lies,” San Francisco City
Attorney Dennis Herrera said.
Conservative leaders expressed
outrage at the ruling and vowed
to appeal.
“For a single judge to rule
there is no conceivable purpose
for preserving marriage as one
man and one woman is mind-
boggling,” said Liberty Counsel
President Mathew Staver. “This
decision will be gasoline on the
fire of the pro-marriage move-
ment in California as well as the
rest of the country.”
Last winter, nearly 4,000 gay
couples got married after
Newsom instructed the city to
issue them licenses, in defiance
of state law. The California
Supreme Court later declared
those marriages void, saying the
mayor overstepped his authority.
But the court did not address the
underlying issue of whether the
law against gay marriage violat-
ed the California Constitution.
At issue were a 1977 law
that defined marriage as “a per-
sonal relation arising out of a
civil contract between a man
and a woman,” and a voter-
approved measure in 2000 that
amended the law to say more
explicitly: “Only marriage
between a man and a woman is
valid or recognized in

Nicki Villa, 12, of New Berlin, Wis., releases seven
balloons last Sunday at a makeshift memorial outside
the Sheraton hotel in Brookfield, Wis. The memorial
was for the seven victims of a shooting Saturday
when a gunman opened fire at a church service
being held at the hotel.
California judge lifts ban
BROOKFIELD, Wis. — It was just another
weekend service for churchgoers in this Milwaukee
suburb when, without warning, they began to be
gunned down by one of their own.
Now victims’ relatives are struggling to keep their
faith and find answers.
Police said Terry Ratzmann, a buttoned-down
churchgoer, shot 22 bullets from a 9 mm handgun
within a minute.
None of those who knew him expected
Ratzmann to be violent, though some said he had
grappled with depression. Neighbors said he was
quiet and devout.
But Saturday, he turned on worshippers. When it
was over, seven people were killed and four others
were wounded. Ratzmann, 44, then shot himself.
“He wasn’t a dark guy. He was average Joe,” said
Shane Colwell, a neighbor who knew Ratzmann for
about a decade.
Ratzmann regularly attended the church’s gather-
ings at the Sheraton hotel.
Dorothy Hodzinski hit the floor and Gerald
Miller, a delivery truck driver, threw his arm over
her as they lay together.
“He tried to protect me,” she said. “I said, ‘Gerry,
I think you better start to pray.’”
“He said ‘Yeah, I think we better,’ and he went
‘uh’ ... Maybe that’s when he was shot.”
A crowd gathered for a candlelight vigil Sunday
night at a makeshift memorial of flowers, crosses
and stuffed animals in front of the hotel.

Shooting exposes
security failures
ATLANTA — The deputy, a
51-year-old woman just 5 feet
tall, was simply no match for
the inmate she was escorting
to the courtroom, a 6-foot-1,
200-pound former college line-
backer on trial for rape.
Authorities say Brian Nichols
overpowered deputy Cynthia
Hall, took her gun, and easily
gained access to the courtroom,
where he went on to kill the
judge and a court reporter.
Security cameras captured
images of him overpowering
the deputy, but no one, it turned
out, was watching the screens.
There were more security
gaffes. Earlier in the week,
Nichols was found to have had
two homemade knives in his
shoes while in court. And the
vehicle reported to be his get-
away car was found more than
13 hours after the shootings —
in the same parking garage
where it was allegedly carjacked.
Authorities are investigating
how the security breakdowns
happened on that bloody Friday
morning, and they are vowing
changes will be made. The issue
is getting national attention as
well, with Sen. Arlen Specter,
chairman of the Senate
Judiciary Committee, saying he
would hold congressional hear-
ings on improving security at
courthouses and for judges.

What do the books, “James
and the Giant Peach,” the
Harry Potter books and “The
Adventures of Huckleberry
Finn” have in common? They
are all ingredients in the cake
that make up everything that
is wrong with our society.
We must protect our chil-
dren from the evils that influ-
ence them when they read. Protect them from the
sexual content, racism, offensive language and vio-
lence. If we keep these abominations on the shelves
children everywhere will be running away in giant
peaches in the company of life-sized insects.
Mark Twain, who does he think he is, putting
the “N” word in a book that takes place in 1845?
It’s an abomination. Giant peaches. Life-size
insects. Broomsticks and wands. It will be pande-
monium. For the good of the future generations,
all books that portray sex, violence, offensive lan-
guage, racism or homosexuality should be banned
— or better yet burned. Head for the hills, the
books are here to search and destroy.
The challenging of books in schools and public
libraries is no new battle in the United States.
Between 1990 and 2000 there were 6,364 chal-
lenged books reported to or recorded by the Office
for Intellectual Freedom. The group that puts forth
these complaints is mostly of parents that fear a
certain book’s effect on their child.
According to the American Libraries
Association, 2004 was the first in five years that
J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” , which has been
cited for its support for Satanism and the occult,
was not the No. 1 most challenged book. It was
replaced by Robert Cormier’s, “The Chocolate
War.” Out of the 10 books on the ALA’s 10 most
challenged books of 2004, four were cited for
homosexual themes, eight for offensive language
and three for sexual content.
The Blue Valley School District in Johnson
County is currently being harangued by parents
upset with some of the books
on the required reading list.
About 500 parents proposed
the removal of 14 books from
the school, including “Song of
Solomon”, by Toni Morrison,
because of allegedly unaccept-
able language, sexual explicit-
ness or violent imagery,
according to the Web site The Web site gives nine reasons why
the books should be banned, the best one being:
“While textual descriptions of heterosexual sex,
oral sex, homosexual sex, anal sex, rape and incest
are not generally classified as pornography, it’s
undeniable that descriptions of sexually explicit
scenes helps develop an appetite for more of the
same. Unfortunately, that appetite easily and logi-
cally leads to pornography and sexual experimen-
Logically, if children read about sex they will
automatically spread their legs for any Joe or Jane
that walks by, just like if they read the Bible they
will be inclined to wander the desert for 40 days. It
all makes perfect sense. But if children can’t read
controversial books, how can they understand and
form opinions about the controversies themselves?
Parents might argue that it’s OK if kids want to
read these books outside of school, but they
shouldn’t be forced to read them in an academic
environment. Logical as well, because everybody
knows teenagers’ favorite recreational activity is
to read and analyze a nice challenging book,
always taking time to consider the different argu-
ments and questions that are introduced.
Whoever thought that our parents, the ones
that begged us to read when we were little, would
be putting up such a fight to keep us illiterate?

Violence in video games lessen
sensitivity to value of humanity
Sometimes video games
mimic reality too much to be
entertaining. This weekend,
we were reminded how thin a
line we tread between life and
imitation when a convicted
felon decided to turn his rage
on the very executors of jus-
tice in the trial that might
have locked him up for good.
Pistol-whipping, car jacking and shooting people
in the face — the news reports streamed in espe-
cially fast because the events transpired in Atlanta,
where CNN has its headquarters. In the end, four
civil servants were dead, and the whole country was
aghast at the senselessness of the crimes committed.
I couldn’t help but think about video games.
In “Grand Theft Auto,” so called because you
commit crime repeatedly to win the game, cars are
hijacked at gunpoint and prostitutes and police-
men are gunned down like dogs or beaten with
baseball bats. These things happen in the world.
I used to swing play swords and shoot Super
Soakers, replicating violence by means of Nerf
foam or water. I also played the “Terminator 2:
Judgment Day” arcade game, putting many 16-bit
robots to a rusty death. These were not pedestri-
ans or drivers, though, and you would lose points
for killing civilians. This is a major distinction
between the games of the past and many of today.
Violent games are the root of society’s ills. But
they do reflect a certain measure of our problems. In
that respect we have to draw the line of what we
consider fun, and decide whether our hobby is per-
petuating a degenerate mindset in which violence
and harm are thought of separately.
When we receive positive
reinforcement for killing on
screen, we start down a slip-
pery slope. College kids are
not likely to go on a rampage
because we have a sense of
something to lose and, hope-
fully, of humanity.
Brian Nichols, still pre-
sumed innocent of this week-
end’s spree, apparently had nothing to lose. I don’t
know if he ever played violent video games, but
surely some journalist will dig up such details in an
in-depth report. Clearly, human life lost signifi-
cance to the killer.
Let’s return for a moment to the slippery slope
mentioned above. The film “Fahrenheit 9/11” —
whether you agree with its political points — con-
veyed the morally tenuous position in which sol-
diers are placed each day. The soldiers inter-
viewed in the film — soldiers our age — explained
that thinking of battle as a video game made the
horror easier to bear. But, they added, the illusion
only works for so long before the reality soaks in.
We play games to take a break from life, and to
release pent-up energy. Shooting games stem from
the familiarity of warfare and its images. I have
faith in most people’s ability to distinguish
between carnage and computer-generated fun, but
sometimes life blurs those lines for us. It is up to
individuals to sort out the strands and pick the
least destructive path.

“Kansas, as bigoted as you think.” There is
no doubt that this satiric bumper sticker is a
massive misrepresentation of Kansas as a
whole. Nevertheless, we have at work some
dedicated local extremists flooding the media
with enough shocking ideological maneuvers
to allow Kansas to remain in the limelight.
And there are so many people to thank for
bringing fame to Kansas. We must acknowl-
edge Fred Phelps for his unremitting homo-
phobic crusade, the former Sen. Kay
O’Connor (R-Kansas) for her vocal opposi-
tion of women’s voting rights, and we must
not forget to express our gratitude to the 1999
Kansas school board for banning that sinful
evolutionary “theory” from
our curriculum.
These radicals do not rep-
resent the majority of people
residing in our humble state.
It is time to restore the state’s
tarnished image before being
a “Kansan” becomes syn-
onymous with being a “zeal-
ous reactionary.”
Attorney General Phill
Kline deserves the credit for
reeling in the majority of
Kansas’ bad press lately, but
his endeavors have the
potential of harming much more than our
reputation. This avid anti-abortionist has
been attempting to subpoena abortion clin-
ics for the comprehensive medical records of
90 women and girls who received late-term
abortions for his stated purpose of investi-
gating criminal cases. Although he loudly
proclaims the need of prosecuting sexual
abuse, he seems more driven to ensure that
underage sexual activity is reported and
abortion laws are upheld.
The clinics refused to turn over the unedited
patients’ files and have requested that the
Kansas Supreme Court intervene in order to
protect doctor-patient confidentiality. These
files contain the patient’s name, medical histo-
ry and “details of her sex life, birth control
practices and psychological profile,” as
described on The clinics were willing
to give edited versions with some of the per-
sonal information left out such as the patient’s
name, but that was insufficient for Kline.
The Kansas City Star reported Feb. 25
that Kline said at a news conference, “I have
the duty to investigate and prosecute child
rape and other crimes in order to protect
Kansas children.”
If given that Kline’s true purpose in taking
these drastic measures is to prosecute sexual
predators, why is he stopping with only those
women who had abortions? What about all
the other women who have been sexually
violated? Wouldn’t the logic follow that he
should obtain their medical records, too?
And while he is at it, why not examine the
medical sexual history of males, too? Is it
possible that maybe, just maybe he has ulteri-
or motives for this 21st century inquisition?
Kline is rallying his ultra-conservative base
by psychologically attacking a woman’s legal
right to have an abortion while simultaneous-
ly disregarding the Fourth Amendment of the
Constitution that protects
“the right of the people to be
secure in their persons,
houses, papers, and effects,
against unreasonable search-
es and seizures” unless there
is probable cause.
There is no reasonable
ground for supposing that his
plan would even succeed in
accomplishing his declared
goals. Kline should by all
means punish sex crimes, but
these tactics explicitly target
and disgrace women who
have had abortions. Whether to have an abor-
tion is one of the most private and agonizing
decisions a woman could make, and nothing
could be worse for those women than to have
their decision made public.
It would set a perilous precedent to allow
the state to access a person’s most private
information. The thought of Big Brother
examining confidential medical records with
such details as a patient’s number of sexual
partners is too hauntingly Orwellian for
Kansans to accept.
Although Kansas can normally repel the
success of these aforementioned fanatics,
every now and again, they have a victory. If
you forgot, just last year Kline was successful
in deciding what music Kansans should be
allowed to listen to by restricting thousands
of CDs from our libraries.
But what can we do to stop this? Get
busy. Write to Kline about what you think of
these intrusive measures.

At Ninth and Massachusetts
streets, there’s a concrete stair-
well that leads to an orange
painted basement entrance.
Illuminated by two flood lights,
a blue-gray plywood sign hangs
above the stairwell with the
words “Dad’s Place” painted on
it. On the sign there are two
hands: one pointing toward
heaven and another pointing to
the west.
What is this place?
“We get that question about
once a week,” Melissa Ingalls,
overseer of Dad’s Place and
2000 University of Kansas grad-
uate, said.
Dad’s Place, 2 E. Ninth St., is
a coffee shop and snack bar
designed for teenagers. Open
from 6 p.m. to midnight Fridays
and Saturdays, it has free pool,
foosball and darts. It’s dimly lit
like a bohemian coffee shop
with artsy black and white pho-
tos along the wall.
In the center of the room,
patrons sit on couches and
watch the Kansas men’s basket-
ball game on television, cheer-
ing and booing.
“We get people that come
down here that think it’s a bar,”
Ingalls said. “They come up to
the counter, and say, ‘Oh, you
don’t sell beer?’”
The youth group at Mustard
Seed Christian Fellowship, 700
Wakarusa Drive, opened Dad’s
Place a year and a half ago to
give teenagers a safe place to
hang out, Ingalls said.
The coffee shop got it’s name
from “the father” in the Holy
Trinity — the Father, the Son
and the Holy Spirit. The two
hands on the sign are “D” and
“P” in sign language.
Despite its religious under-
tones, there is no organized
evangelism at Dad’s Place,
Ingalls said.
The Healing Stone, a homeo-
pathic store, was in that loca-
tion before it was Dad’s Place.
It took four months to con-
vert it from a retail space to a
coffee shop.
“It basically looked like the
worst basement you’ve ever
seen,” Ingalls said.
Michael Ingalls, overseer and
2001 graduate, estimates that
$25,000 to $30,000 of work
went into Dad’s Place.
Dad’s Place is a good place to
bring younger siblings without
having bad influences around,
said Micah Barclay, a 16-year-
old student at Veritas Christian
School, 256 N. Michigan St.
“There’s totally a lack of
places we can go,” Barclay said.
“There’s plenty of places 18- to
20-year-olds can go to.”
Barclay likes that he can
hang out at Dad’s Place and not
spend a lot of money.
Despite it’s location on the
pub crawl route, Dad’s Place
only has few problems with the
bar crowd.
“There’s the occasional bath-
room break at our front door,”
Michael Ingalls, who is married
to Melissa, said.
The entrance is dark and
secluded, and people some-
times urinate after the leaving
the bars, he said.
Because of its small budget,
Dad’s Place relies on word of
mouth, fliers and curiosity to
bring people in.
That curiosity brings in peo-
ple who are not teenagers, and
those people are welcome,
Ingalls said.
It was that curiosity that
lured in Leighton Watts, 22,
Lawrence resident, a year ago.
“I thought it was a bar,”
Watts said. “It’s a teen thing,
but there’s people my age if I
have problems to talk about.
It’s a good place for the young

they had five or more drinks in

spring, Nash didn’t exactly go out on top. Never
proving to the coaches that he was a consistent
player, the 6-foot-9 forward played less as a sen-
ior than he did as a freshman, averaging just 4.9
minutes per game.
After the season, he traveled to camps in Tulsa,
Okla., and Westchester, Ill., to scrimmage against
other professional wannabes with the hope of
impressing scouts. But all he got was a few empty
promises and one insultingly low offer.
Nash said camp directors and people claiming
to have connections to Europe kept telling him
that teams wanted him, but nothing materialized.
One team from Switzerland offered him a spot
on its roster, but would only pay him $1,000 a
month. He considered it, though he didn’t know
how he would afford food.
He called coach Bill Self for advice, and Self
told him that he’d be better off finishing his soci-
ology degree.
Thinking back on how hard things would have
been in Switzerland, Nash said he was glad Self
steered him back to Kansas.
“He looked out for me,” Nash said.
He enrolled in a couple of fall classes and kept
his eye out for an opportunity.
* * *
In January, Nash caught a break when he ran
into Eric Stamps, a former assistant coach at
Emporia State. Stamps knew Antonio “Tree”
Adams, coach and general manager of the
Colorado Storm of the American Basketball
Nash said when he told Stamps he was looking
to play, Stamps called Adams and put a word in
for him. Adams told Stamps to send Nash to a
hotel in Kansas City at 7 a.m, where he would
meet him.
Nash said he went to bed nervous. When he
woke up the next day in his Lawrence apartment,
he looked at his clock: it was already past seven.
He called Stamps and begged him to ask Adams
for another chance. Adams refused.
But soon after, when the team came to Kansas
City to play the Knights, Adams told Nash that if
he came to the game, he would play. This time
Nash showed up.
He did good enough to earn a road trip with
the team. In the next couple of games his right
knee, which had been bothering him since the
summer, really started to hurt. The injury soon
became obvious to his coach and teammates.
When the Storm returned to Kansas City, Nash
embarrassed himself with an ugly missed dunk.
“Everybody was laughing at me,” he said. “It
got to that point, and I was still trying to play on
The team released him after his fifth game. As
soon as he got back to Lawrence, he went to the

Repeating the past
The Kansas seniors remember
their last meeting with the Patriot
League champions all too well.
It was March 14, 2002. No. 1
Kansas faced No. 16 Holy Cross in
the first round of the NCAA
Tournament. The Jayhawks trailed
by as many as five in the second half
and needed a 14-4 run in the game’s
closing minutes to avoid being the
first No. 1 seed in NCAA
Tournament history to get bounced
in the first round.
Kansas pulled that one out, 70-59,
and four games later, advanced to
the Final Four in Atlanta.
This season, the Patriot League
has a different tournament champi-
on, but the same opponent for the
first round game: Kansas. Bucknell
defeated Holy Cross in the Patriot
League Tournament to earn an auto-
matic NCAA Tournament bid.
Senior guard Mike Lee, who was
around for the near-upset three
years ago, said Bucknell isn’t a team
to be taken lightly. Kansas seniors
should know anything can happen
in the first round.
“The first-round jitters can get
you,” Lee said. “On any given day
any team can win because every
team is coming out here to play and
every team is coming out here to
The idea that any team can get hot
or lucky and knock off a higher seed
is something that Bucknell coach
Pat Flannery hopes will work in his
team’s favor.
“Kansas is obviously one of the
premier teams in the country,”
Flannery said. “Our guys are all col-
lege basketball fans, and I’m sure
they’ve seen Kansas on television
plenty of times. But we will be ready
for them.”
Bucknell is coming into the tour-
nament winning 18 of its last 23
games, and it’s not like the Bison
haven’t faced their fair share of good
teams. Their non-conference sched-
ule included St. Joseph’s, Iowa State,
Villanova and Pittsburgh, three
teams that the Jayhawks faced as
well. On Jan. 2, Bucknell defeated
then-No. 7 ranked Pittsburgh 69-66
on Pittsburgh’s home court. The
team also defeated St. Joseph’s 69-
Like the Jayhawks, who suffered
their worst loss of the season to
Villanova, the Bison fell to that team
“We played a tough non-league
schedule to hopefully prepare our-
selves for a situation like this,”
Flannery said. “I certainly don’t
expect any intimidation factor at
The win against Pittsburgh put
Bucknell on the national radar and
caught the attention of some Kansas
players, including senior guard
Keith Langford.
“I’ve kinda followed them since
they beat Pitt,” Langford said.
“They’ve earned our respect.”
The Bison are led by their three
leading scorers Chris McNaughton,
and junior guards Charles Lee and
Kevin Bettencourt.
McNaughton, a 6-foot-11 sopho-
more center, is averaging 12.2 points
per game. He will most likely match-
up with 6-foot-9 Simien. Although it
may seem like a size disadvantage,

Bryant Nash, former Kansas men’s basketball player, stretches his right knee during rehabilitation exer-
cises at the Lawrence Surgical Center last Wednesday afternoon. Nash injured his knee gradually while play-
ing basketball for the American Basketball Association team, the Colorado Storm. He played two games for
the Storm this year before having surgery Feb. 11. Nash is taking classes this semester and will graduate in

Hey Kansas,
Don’t ignore
No. 14 seed
Editor’s Note: Kansan columnist Jack
Weinstein prophesied this letter from the
Bucknell basketball players to the Kansas bas-
ketball players.
Dear University of Kansas men’s basketball
You were probably excited to see that you drew
us in the first round of this year’s NCAA
Tournament. You are the high and mighty Kansas
Jayhawks, the No. 3 seed, and we are the lowly
Bucknell Bison, the No. 14 seed. Right? We find
it hard to believe that you would ever consider us
a worthy opponent, but you’re wrong. Consider
this letter a warning.
We know all about your rich tradition at
Kansas. We know about your two NCAA
National Championships. You’ve played in seven
title games and only won two. What’s up with
that? That’s only 29 percent. We know you’ve
won 48 conference championships and appeared
in 12 Final Fours. Big deal.
We are the Patriot League Tournament champi-
ons. You couldn’t even win your tournament or
the outright league title. You had to share the Big
12 regular season title with Oklahoma, and that
shouldn’t even count because you lost to that
team 71-63 in the regular season.
We aren’t pushovers; we beat then-No. 7
Pittsburgh, St. Joseph’s, (whom you beat by 40, but
we don’t think about that) and Niagara this season.
Basketball aside, Bucknell as a university is far
superior to Kansas. Our University was founded in
1846, yours in 1866. We are located in beautiful,

Albuquerque regional
tournament review
Editor’s note: Kansan sports-
writer Kellis Robinett will exam-
ine the four regions in the
NCAA Tournament before play
starts Thursday. The following is
a breakdown of the
Albuquerque regional.
Tomorrow, Robinett will dissect
the first-round games in the
Austin regional.
No. 1 Washington (27-5) vs. No. 16
Montana (18-12)
Washington finished second
in the Pac 10 standings, but won
the conference tournament and
claimed a top seed. UW likes to
run and has four players that
average more than 10 points a
game. Montana got into the Big
Dance by defeating Weber State
in the championship game of
the Big Sky Conference
Tournament. The Grizzlies are
extremely young and only have
one senior on the roster.
No. 8 Pacific (26-3) vs. No. 9
Pittsburgh (20-8)
Pacific is the best mid-major
team in the field, and has been
ranked for the majority of the
season. The Tigers own victo-
ries against three tournament
teams - Utah State, Nevada
and Texas-El Paso - and played
Kansas tough in Allen
Fieldhouse. Pittsburgh suf-
fered from late losses and fell
to a nine seed, but the
Panthers can play with any-
one. They won at Connecticut,
crushed Boston College and
swept Syracuse.
No. 5 Georgia Tech (19-11) vs. No. 12
George Washington (22-7)
By playing its best basketball
late, Georgia Tech made it to the
championship game of the ACC
Tournament and is poised to
make another run to the Final
Four. George Washington is also
on a roll, winning four straight
games and the Atlantic 10
Tournament. The Colonials also
own impressive victories against
Maryland and Michigan State.
No. 4 Louisville (29-4) vs. No. 13 LA-
Lafeyette (20-10)
Louisville finished the season
on a nine-game winning streak
and won the Conference USA
regular season and tournament
titles. Junior forward Francisco
Garcia was selected to the All-
Conference USA Team, and
three other Cardinals average
more than 10 points a game.
Louisiana Lafayette will be
ready. The Ragin’ Cajuns played
Louisiana State, Charlotte,
Kansas, North Carolina State
and Southern Illinois during the
regular season.
No. 6 Texas Tech (20-10) vs. No. 11
UCLA (18-10)
UCLA returns to the NCAA
Tournament after a two year
absence. The Bruins are led by
senior forward Dijon
Thompson, who scores more
than 18 points a game. Ben
Howland’s team finished third
in the Pac 10 standings and
defeated Washington earlier in
the year. But the edge has to go
to Texas Tech. It’s tough to pick
against a coach like Bob Knight,
who just last weekend told his
team, “The next player to give
up a rebound will be shot.”
Senior guard Ronald Ross and
sophomore guard Jarrius
Jackson both average more than
15 points a game and have the
Red Raiders playing strong.
No. 3 Gonzaga (25-4) vs. No. 14
Winthrop (27-5)
The Cinderella label is getting
old for Gonzaga. For the second
straight year the Zags have a
top-three seed. They are led by
senior forward Ronny Turriaf,
who turned down the NBA to
finish his college career. Turriaf,
along with three other players,
averages more than 12 points a
game. Gonzaga will have a
tough test with Winthrop, who
is the best 14 seed in the tourna-
ment. The Eagles are on a mas-
sive 18-game winning streak
and only Illinois exceeds their
27 total victories.
No. 7 West Virginia (21-10) vs. No. 10
Creighton (23-10)
West Virginia only finished 8-
8 in the Big East, but a run to
the championship game of the
Big East Tournament catapulted
the Mountaineers into a seven
seed. It has six players that aver-
age more than eight points a
game. Creighton got into to the
Big Dance after winning the
Missouri Valley Tournament.
The Jays finished third place in
the regular season standings,
but are riding an eight-game
winning streak.
No. 2 Wake Forest (26-5) vs. No. 15
Chattanooga (20-10)
The Deamon Deacons looked
terrible against North Carolina
State last weekend But that was
without sophomore guard Chris
Paul, who was suspended for
throwing a punch in a previous
game. Paul will be playing in the
NCAA Tournament and Wake
Forest should have no problem
taking care of Chattanooga. The
Mocs finally got in the Big Dance
after losing in the Southern
Conference Tournament’s cham-
pionship game the last two years.
They are led by senior forward
Mindaugas Katelynas, who near-
ly averages a double-double with
12 points and 9.1 rebounds.

Spring practices start,
to be open to public
The Kansas football team will
hold an open practice to the public
at 3:40 p.m. Wednesday the football
fields next to Hogland Ballpark,
coach Mark Mangino announced
This will be the first opportunity
for fans to see how the Jayhawk
football team will look next season.
Practice began Sunday for Kansas,
and will run until April 16 when the
annual spring game will take place
at 3 p.m. at Memorial Stadium.
Fans will see many of the junior
college transfers that will play for
the Jayhawks next season such as
defensive tackle Wayne Wilder.
Mangino said in February’s signing
day press conference that there
were many players that will make
an immediate impact on the offen-
sive and defensive lines.

Freshman ends season
on high note at Zone D
This past weekend, freshman
diver Jenny Roberts wrapped up
the 2004-2005 diving season with a
strong finish.
Roberts was the only member of
the Kansas diving team to compete
in the NCAA Zone D regional diving
Coming off a back injury during
her senior year of high school, last
Saturday was Roberts’ first attempt
at Championship diving. She com-
pleted six dives in the one-meter
diving competition and finished
Coach Eric Elliot said that there
were a couple of dives on which
Roberts “missed a bit.”
Before the start of the meet,
Roberts said that she most wanted
to come out of the meet with expe-
rience, and Elliot believes that is
exactly what she has now.
Roberts was in ninth place after
completing the first three dives but
slipped down to 17th after poor per-
formances on the next two dives.
Elliot said that Roberts’ goal was
to place, which she did.
“Eighteen is the cut,” Elliot said,
“and she made the cut.”
Although diving is over until next
fall, Roberts has finished with expe-
rience that should set her up to be a
leader on the team next season.

Chaney will return to coach
Temple in the NIT.
Chaney was suspended for
the final five games of the sea-
son after ordering rough play
from one of his players, who
broke the arm of St. Joseph’s
senior John Bryant.
Temple extended Chaney’s

where he scored 58 points in two
games. Additionally, Mc-
Naughton is averaging a little
more than four rebounds a game,
while Simien averages almost 10.
In the backcourt, the Bison
are led by Bettencourt, a three-
point specialist, who leads the
team in scoring with 12.7 points
per game. He ranks fifth all-
time in Bucknell history with
137 three-point shots.
The Jayhawks began their
NCAA tournament prepara-
tions yesterday. They practiced
for the first time since their loss
to Oklahoma State on
Saturday. Coaches began the
scouting report on Bucknell last
night immediately after the
selection show. Self said the
coaching staff had taped every
game since Feb. 1, so they
already had film to watch on
Friday’s opponent.
“We have one tape and we
will make arrangements to get
stuff on our two possible oppo-
nents,” he said.
Self said the team would pre-
pare for Bucknell until
Wednesday and then begin
preparing for possible match-
ups with Northern Iowa or
Basketball Notebook:
✦ Keith Langford
Senior guard Keith Langford
said he did two individual
workouts on Saturday: one
before he came to Kansas City,
Mo., for the Jayhawks’ game
against the Oklahoma State
Cowboys and one after he
returned to Lawrence.
Langford said he would have
tried to play Sunday had the
Jayhawks advanced to the Big
12 Conference championship.
Langford was out all last
week with an injured left ankle
and came down with a severe
case of stomach flu last
Wednesday. He had to be
admitted to the hospital for
“As far as my ankle goes, I am
fine,” Langford said. “But health-
wise I am, like, one to two days
away from being 100 percent.”
✦ Freshmen seeing minutes
Freshmen Alex Galindo and
C.J. Giles saw more minutes
during the past weekend than
they have in a while. Giles had
played three total minutes in
the Jayhawks’ last four games,
but he saw 11 minutes of action
on Saturday. Galindo was one
of the five Jayhawks on the
court in the game’s crucial min-
utes and he took the potential
game-tying shot.
Junior Christian Moody’s
health has been part of the rea-
son freshmen have seen recent
playing time, coach Bill Self
said. Moody has not been com-
pletely healthy since he suffered
a staph infection in his right
knee after Texas Tech defeated
Kansas on Feb. 14.
“You can see he’s not playing
or exploding the way that he
was before,” Self said.
✦ Extra day’s rest
Self said that because the
Jayhawks did not play in the Big
12 Tournament championship
game on Sunday, and will not
play an NCAA tournament game
until Friday, the extra rest could
allow his team to be as healthy
as it has been since mid-season.
“We just need to get whole,”
Self said. “This will be about as
whole as we’ve been if we can
get through the week.”
“We may need to wear reflec-
tor shirts to make sure oncom-
ing cars see us,” he laughed.
✦ Travel schedule
The Jayhawks will travel to
Oklahoma City tomorrow. Self
said the team would most likely
take a bus, rather than a charter
flight, similar to when it traveled
to Norman to play Oklahoma.
Kansas will play in the final
Friday night game, scheduled to
tip off about 8:50 p.m. It will be
aired in Lawrence on cable
channels 5 and 13.
— Edited by Lisa Coble-Krings
historic Lewisburg, Pa. Your
campus is on a hill in
Lawrence, Kan. We are a pri-
vate school; you are public.
Your mascot is the Jayhawk, a
mythical bird with historic
implications we understand.
We’d like to point out that our
mascot is a real animal. Bison
actually exist. On top of that,
our student body is smarter.
Our average SAT score is 1299.
What do you think of that,
We hear that the University
of Kansas has trouble keeping
its students from flunking out.
Our retention rate is 96 percent
and 89 percent of our students
go on to graduate. Ninety-four
percent of those students find
jobs in the first six months after
graduation. Can you boast
those statistics, Kansas? Didn’t
think so.
You think you’re so special
with your All-American candi-
date and Big 12 Conference
Player of the Year Wayne
Simien, one of the nation’s
most efficient point guards in
Aaron Miles, and one of the
country’s best slashers in Keith
Langford. Will he even play?
We have a three-point threat in
junior Kevin Bettencourt,
Bucknell’s all-time leader in
that category. Our own version
of Langford is junior Charles
Lee, who can also knock down
shots from beyond the arc.
Don’t sleep on sophomore
Chris McNaughton in the paint
Do you think you’re better
than us because you play in a
“major conference” that sent six
teams to the NCAA
Tournament and our Patriot
League only sent one? Give us
a break.
We’ve won four games in a
row, while you’re reeling — los-
ers of five of your last eight.
We’re a hot team right now, and
you don’t even want a part of
the wrath we’ll impose on you
Friday night in Oklahoma City.
Unlucky for you this game
can’t be played in historic Phog
Allen Fieldhouse, named in
honor of the “Father of
Basketball Coaching,” the place
where you’ve won more than 85
percent of your games the last
50 years.
We know that your “loyal”
fans will travel to the Ford
Center to see you play. We’ve
heard that thousands will
attend — probably more than
our Sojka Pavilion and its
4,000-seat capacity can hold.
That won’t bother us.
Unless our coach gets burned
out and walks out on us like he
did earlier this season, we’ll
give you a game. Don’t think
about the second round or a
possible Elite Eight showdown
with North Carolina, because if
you do, we’ll send you home.
Watch your back, because if
you don’t, you’ll get stampeded.

✦ Today’s Birthday. Learn what you
need to do to fix up your place just the
way you want it. Hire experts, when
you’re not sure what you're supposed
to do next. This will be fun.
✦ Aries (March 21-April 19) Today is a 6.
You’re learning a lot for the next few
days, but some lessons disappoint.
Don’t fret if you discover what doesn’t
work or isn’t worth anything. It’s good
to know these things.
✦ Taurus (April 20-May 20) Today is a 7.
Even though you love your friends,
don’t tell them everything. Keep pri-
vate negotiations under wraps until
later, for best results.
✦ Gemini (May 21-June 21) Today is a 6.
Timing is important, if you want to win
this round. You’ll do well to hold onto
what you have. Don’t go into battle
alone, put together a team.
✦ Cancer (June 22-July 22) Today is a 7.
Go with the option that’s steady and
sure, even if it takes longer. Put some
stability into your life, you’ve got
enough excitement.
✦ Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Today is a 5. If
you don’t like the way things are being
done, make decisions for yourself.
Then, share them with the powers that
be. You could win a promotion.
✦ Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Today is an 8.
Your travels and what you’ve been
learning are putting you into a better
position. Take on more responsibility.
Make sure your pay goes up accord-
✦ Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Today is a 6.
You may be worried about whether a
gamble will pay off. Actually, the odds
are good, but there’s still some work
involved. Minimize your risk.
✦ Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Today is
an 8. For the next little while, you’ll
need to start looking at the numbers. If
there’s not enough to buy what you
want, don't despair. Figure out how to
get it.
✦ Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Today is
a 6. If you’re not progressing as rapidly
as you’d like, don’t stress. It would be
a good idea to get somebody to help.
Does anyone owe you a favor?
✦ Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today is
an 8. You and a loved one will have
lots of time to dig into the past, if you
want. Conditions are much better now
for planning your future together.
✦ Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Today is a 6.
Schedule more time for long conversa-
tions for the next couple of days. Love
and money are the two topics most
likely to come up. There will be sur-
✦ Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Today is
a 7. Domestic matters could interfere
with your regular chores. This is a
temporary situation. Take care of
family first.

Kansas training room to see
what was wrong with his knee.
Trainer Billy Cowgill l had X-
rayed it over the summer when
Nash first started feeling pain
but hadn’t seen anything wrong.
This time, Cowgill discov-
ered that two pieces of bone
had broken off inside Nash’s
right knee and his meniscus
was torn. The X-ray taken in
the summer had apparently not
been held to the proper light,
and the injury had gotten much
worse over time.
Nash needed surgery.
* * *
Grendia Forshee, Nash’s
mother, had the surgery delayed
a few days so she could come
up from Coppell, Texas. She
wanted to be in the recovery
room to hold her son’s hand
when he woke up.
She said that when Nash was
little, he was scared of every-
thing: butterflies, piggy banks,
you name it.
She remembers one time
when he was three years old
and they were living in
Chicago. She received a call
from her sister, who was baby-
sitting little Bryant. He just
wouldn’t stop crying.
“I didn’t know what to do,”
Forshee said. “She said he was
looking at a straw that was
sticking out of a vase. He saw
the shadow of the straw, and it
scared him.”
Yes, he was even afraid of
Luckily, his family was there
to care for him while he grew
up in Lake West apartments, a
housing project in West Dallas,
where he lived from preschool
to middle school with his sisters
Conchetta, who is two years
younger than him, and
Michole, who was born when
he was 14.
“Most people don’t believe
me, but it was pretty rough,” he
said. “Cops patrolling the
neighborhood all the time,
gangs and stuff.”
Nash’s parents got divorced
when he was about 10, and
after that he only saw his father,
Bryant Sr., a couple of times a
week at most. But his mom was
always there, along with a sup-
port crew of aunts, uncles and
“As strict as my mom was,
she kept me away from all that
stuff,” he said. “If she wasn’t
there, I was with my aunties,
and they would whoop my butt
when I was acting bad.”

Sitting on the balcony of the
Wagnon Student Athlete
Center, Nash told a story about
being stuck in an elevator dur-
ing his trip to Sweden.
He was on a tour of Europe
with a Big 12 Conference all-star
team the summer after his soph-
omore year. As the team was
about to leave a Swedish hotel
for a game, Nash stepped into
the elevator alone. It abruptly
stopped between floors.
Afraid of being left behind,
he called back, he picked up
the elevator phone and called
the desk clerk.
When someone finally
opened the door, he ran out as
fast as he could.
Since his knee surgery, it’s
like he’s back in that elevator:
stuck in place while everyone
else is out there playing.
These days, he takes it pretty
easy. He’s taking his final two
classes: “Introduction to Social
Research” and bowling. He
spends a lot of time with Ashley
Michaels, his girlfriend of near-
ly three years and a senior mid-
dle blocker this past fall on the
Kansas volleyball team.
He said the bad part was that
he had way too much time to
think about basketball.
“Oh God, I talk about it like
three, four, five times a day,” he
The doctors say his knee
should be healed by May 11.
Eleven days later, Nash will
receive his diploma for a bache-
lor’s degree in sociology.
He could be back playing for
the Colorado Storm next fall.
The team recently told him it
wants him around next season.
“Unless something better
comes along, I might take that,”
he said.
For now, all he can do is

Intramurals play in semifinals
The matchups are set for
tonight’s men’s and women’s
intramural championships.
Physical play was the com-
mon theme last night in the
Student Recreation Fitness
Center, with the referees staying
busy all night.
In the men’s division, the
Seminoles defeated Phi Slamma
Jamma 55-49 in a game that
came down to the wire.
The Seminoles took advan-
tage of open shots in the first
half and held the upper hand by
16 points at halftime.
“We felt like we were in con-
trol the whole half,” Mark
Moxley, St. Louis senior, said.
In the second half, Phi
Slamma Jamma slowed down
the pace of the game.
They succeeded in getting
inside shots and slowly chipped
away the lead, outscoring the
Seminoles 19-4 in a six-minute
The Seminoles got into foul
trouble early in the half and fin-
ished the game with five players.
In the last minute, ahead by
three, they stopped Phi Slamma
Jamma from making a three-
point shot that would have put
them within striking distance.
Phi Slamma Jamma ends
their season 9-1 overall. The
Seminoles will go into the finals
at 8-0.
They will go up against
defending champions Johnny
Kilroys. The Kilroys blew away
the Young Gunz with 17 uncon-
tested points in a six-minute
stretch in the first half.
It was a slow second half for
both teams, and the Killroys
took the victory 68-49.
Two Young Gunz players
fouled out during the game.
In the women’s half of the
bracket, the Hawks punched
their ticket to the finals with a 65-
27 stomping of Thunder Thighs.
Just eight minutes into the
game, the Hawks had already
established their dominance
with a 19-2 lead.
The team is 5-1, and has won
by an average of 25 points in its
tournament games.
They, too, will have to face a
defending champion in the finals.
Keep Shooting defeated
Chopper City 38-35 after trail-
ing for most of the game.
The first half played out slow-
ly, with each team using a time-
out to slow a rally by the other.
At halftime, Keep Shooting was
trailing by three.
“We chilled out, slowed
down, and started taking our
time,” Lauren Jenkins, St. Louis
sophomore, said.
Changing the pace worked,
and in the second half, Keep
Shooting broke the stalemate
with 10 minutes to play.
They never led by more than
five but held onto the lead down
the stretch.
Keep Shooting was dominant
from the free-throw line, shooting
67 percent for the game and 75
percent in the final two minutes.
They enter the final with an
overall record of 5-1. Chopper
City ends their season at 5-1.
The women’s final will tip off
at 8 tonight, followed by the
men’s and co-rec finals at 9 and
10 p.m. All games are in Allen
