Bar owners feel sting of loss
The second game of the Final Four between
North Carolina and Michigan State rallied only
enough people to fill two-thirds of JB Stout’s
Sports Bar and Grill, 721 Wakarusa Drive,
Saturday night.
Nearly every section had empty tables.
Dustin Holiday, former KU student, said he
expected more people to come out to watch the
Final Four.
“After about 15 minutes the place cleared out,”
he said. “I was really surprised.”

Catholics mourn
Nick Weiser knelt down in
the front pew of the chapel at
the St. Lawrence Catholic
Center Friday night.
The Dighton freshman hung
his head low as he draped his
rosary over the side of the pew
in the front row.
His prayers were for Pope
John Paul II, who died Saturday
in his Vatican apartment, ending
a long public struggle against
debilitating illness. He was 84.
Kasonia Kisangani, December
2004 graduate from Manhattan,
said more students could have
shown up to the center’s vigil,
1631 Crescent Road, had they
known about it, but he was
happy with the turnout.
“It was necessary to pray for
the pope because it’s an oppor-
tunity for everyone to come
together in prayer,” he said.
More than 50 students joined
Weiser Friday night for a prayer
vigil for Pope John Paul II.
The vigil was a time for peo-
ple to mourn, but it was also a
time to celebrate the pope’s life,
the Rev. James Sanchez said.
“We’re here to recognize the
great legacy our Holy Father is
leaving us,” Sanchez said in a
sermon. “His legacy is that he
embodied, he witnessed and he
inspired hope.” Sanchez said the
pope did that when he lived and
he would continue doing that in
The Rev. Vince Krische was
impressed by the general con-
cern of the Catholic leader.
Krische said people had
stopped him in Lawrence Friday
to ask him about the pope’s con-
“I just think it’s really inter-
esting. It’s the big word on the
street and everyone — not just
Catholics — is talking about it,”
he said.
Weiser and others at the gath-
ering said they felt a personal
connection to the Holy Father.
Weiser heard the pope speak
when he attended a spring
break pilgrimage to Rome less
than two weeks ago.
“It feels like a connection hav-
ing been at one of his last cele-
brations he appeared,” he said.
The pope’s final public appear-
ance was Wednesday when, look-
ing gaunt and unable to speak, he
briefly appeared at his window.

Marriage ban on
ballot tomorrow
Kansas will be the first of four states in 2005 to
decide whether to amend its state constitution to
prohibit same-sex marriage. The proposed
amendment will be on ballots across the state
South Dakota, Tennessee and Alabama will fol-
low Kansas and vote on state constitutional
amendments later this year.
While 17 states already have constitutional
amendments prohibiting same-sex marriage, 23
others have pending amendments, according to
the Human Rights Campaign, a national organi-
zation working for equal rights for lesbians, gays,
bisexuals and transgendered persons.
Kansas, like many other states, already has a
state statute that prohibits same-sex marriage and
defines marriage as a contract between two peo-
ple of the opposite sex. The proposed amendment
would take this statute a step further.
The first part of the amendment defines mar-
riage as a civil contract between one man and one
woman. By this definition, all other marriages
would be declared void.
The second part says the state will not recog-
nize any relationship, other than marriage, as hav-
ing the rights or incidents of marriage.
This would deny some tax breaks and benefits
to people in civil unions who are not married,
Aaron Paden, Lawrence senior, said. And that
takes things too far, Paden said. He has helped
organize a rally against the amendment at 12:20
today at Wescoe Beach.
“Our constitution should be there to protect
citizens,” Paden said. “For the constitution to be
used to take away rights from people is bad. It
seems almost evil.”
Daniel Rea, St. Louis freshman and activism
chairman for Queers and Allies, said the amend-
ment was too specific.
“It’s not just defining marriage,” Rea said. “It’s
denying rights to any partners or couples outside
of marriage.”
Student Senate voted last month to oppose the
amendment. The amendment conflicts with the
University of Kansas Code of Student Rights and
Responsibilities, which protects students from
harassment based on sexual orientation.
While denying the recognition of other civil
unions is a bold step, it is necessary to ensure that
the amendment is more than just theory, Lee
Bickerstaff, Emporia senior, said.
“If there are no real world effects, then you’re
just arguing semantics,” Bickerstaff said.
If the amendment does not pass, the legislature
could still amend the state’s statute prohibiting
same-sex marriage, which would function similar-
ly to the constitutional amendment.
But that is unlikely, Allan Cigler, professor of
political science, said. Governor Kathleen
Sebelius can veto any new statutes.
“My guess would be that she doesn’t support
the amendment,” Cigler said. “I think it’s the
amendment or nothing.”
Cigler said he doubted the house and the sen-
ate could get the two-third vote required to over-
ride a governor’s veto.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow.
Registered voters can contact The Douglas County
Clerk’s office for voting locations at 832-5267. A
majority vote is needed for the amendment to pass.

KUnited campaign fined
Student Senate candidates have
been campaigning on Wescoe Beach
for the last two weeks, and have now
taken it one step further and started
campaigning door to door in some of
the residence halls.
Two members of the coalition went
door to door handing out KUnited
campaign materials to people in the
residence halls. The Elections
Commission ruled Thursday that this
type of campaigning was illegal and
required a $25 fine.
Jack Connor, member of the
Student Voice coalition, filed the
complaint against the KUnited mem-
bers and thought the punishment the
coalition received should have been
“This has been a problem in the
past, but when the coalition gets off
like they did, they will continue to do
it all day,” Connor said. “I think the
commission should have sent more of
a message.”
Shelly Roben-Lojka, the complex
director for Lewis and Templin halls,
said that the policies on campaigning
in the residence halls had not changed
from past years.
Roben-Lojka said that signs were
hung in the lobby of Lewis and
Templin halls every year to help rein-
force their policy. Roben-Lojka said
people who do not live in the resi-
dence halls should always be accom-
panied by someone who does live in
the residence halls.
“In the four years I have been
working here, I have seen no change
in the way people campaign,” Roben-
Lojka said. “We put signs up and that
is the best we can do.”
Roben-Lojka said it was not up to
the residence halls directors to decid-
ed what the punishment should be for
people campaigning in the residence
halls and said it should be left up to
the elections commission.
The complaint that Connor filed
was against a specific member of
KUnited, Lance Mall, Clay Center
freshman. The commission ruled Mall
was not guilty for his campaigning,
however, it found KUnited as a whole
guilty for supporting Mall in some-
thing they knew was against the rules.
Mall and Nick Sterner, presidential
candidate for KUnited, had no com-
ment on the commission’s decision
and said the coalition had not decid-
ed whether they would appeal the
commission’s decision.

could appeal to the IFC General

said it would not because of the
decision made this weekend.
He said he wanted other fra-
ternities to look at Phi Kappa
Theta’s situation as an example.
“We hope this shows to a lot
of fraternities that maybe it’s
time to re-evaluate how their
chapter is ran,” he said. “This
should definitely be a wake-up
call to fraternities to take risk

Student Housing fights growing pains
The number of first-time
freshmen living in residence
halls increased 12 percent in the
past two academic years to
2,983 students. With a high
number of freshmen, increasing
numbers of upperclassmen and
Hashinger Hall closing, the KU
Department of Student Housing
is cutting some of the perks for
returning residents.
The department issued housing
contracts March 14 for students
who intended to return to the res-
idence halls. Contracts were due
on March 30, and first choices
were not granted to everyone,
Diana Robertson, associate direc-
tor of student housing, said.
“Everyone who requested a
contract got one, but their assign-
ment wasn’t necessarily what
their first choice was,” she said.
Freshman enrollment increased
this year, and the number of fresh-
men living in residence halls is
growing at a steady pace. The
number of freshmen in residence
halls has gone up from 2,701 in
the last academic year to 2,983 in
this academic year, according to
student housing. The increase of
282 students this year is more than
the total population currently liv-
ing in Lewis Hall and Templin
Hall — 275 students.
Hashinger is closing this May
for renovation, taking away 460
student living spaces. When
Hashinger reopens in Fall 2006,
it will have 375 student spaces.
Robertson said student hous-
ing will compensate for the
increasing freshman class and
loss of space by not allowing any
upperclassmen to live in a two-
person room alone, as it had in
the past. All of the two-person
rooms will have two people in the
residence halls next year, she said.
The “squatter rule,” another
returning-resident perk, will be
eliminated for next year. The
rule allowed residents to keep
the same room for the following
year if they turned in their
Intent-to-Return forms by the
deadline, which was February 2.
Robertson said the department
also issued 250 fewer ITR forms
this year because of the Hashinger
renovation. In the past, student
housing has issued about 600 ITR
forms. They issued 350 this year.
“We’re still offering the same
number of freshmen spaces, just
issuing fewer returning con-
tracts,” Robertson said.
Student housing issued ITR
forms in January on a first-
come, first-serve basis, which
caused a rush of returning stu-
dents to housing headquarters,
adjacent to GSP-Corbin Hall.
Laura Evers, Ellsworth resi-
dent and Olathe sophomore, said
it was nerve-racking trying to
keep a spot in the residence halls
for next year. Evers got the stu-
dent housing office before 8 a.m.
on the first possible day, Jan. 24,
to turn in her ITR form. She said
with the first-come, first-serve
system, she may not have had
anywhere to live had she forgot-
ten to complete the ITR form.
Heather Wood, Jayhawker
Towers resident and Wichita
senior, said she requested a two-
person bedroom in the Towers
for next year. She received the
two-person bedroom but with
three other people. Two people
will share a room together.
Wood said if she had known
that Hashinger was closing, she
would have turned in her ITR
form on the first day possible.
“I think changes need to be
made,” Wood said. “I’ve been
in student housing for four
years, and that should have
some effect in choosing where I
want to live with my money.”

“I would say we are down 30
percent,” said Fee Menshizadeh,

final game, Jefferson’s and
Stout’s would be looking at

Although the potential tour-
nament revenue that the bars
may have counted on is not
technically a loss of revenue,
establishments in the city have
come to expect more than a
first-round loss.

FBI finds bombing materials
they may have missed evidence
a decade ago, FBI agents
searched the former home of
convicted Oklahoma City
bombing conspirator Terry
Nichols and found blasting caps
and other explosive materials
apparently related to the 1995
attack, officials said Friday.
FBI officials said the material
was found buried in a crawl
space of the house in
Herington, which wasn’t
checked by agents during the
numerous searches of the prop-
erty during the original investi-
gation of Nichols and Timothy
“The information so far indi-
cates the items have been there
since prior to the Oklahoma
City bombing,” Agent Gary
Johnson said in a telephone
interview from Oklahoma City.
FBI spokesman Jeff Lanza
said in Kansas the materials
were found in boxes, much of
them wrapped in plastic, and
were being sent to the FBI lab
for analysis. The FBI is operat-
ing on the assumption the evi-
dence was from the original
Oklahoma plot, he said.
In coming days, agents will be
looking for any fingerprints and
other clues on the evidence that
might show where the explo-
sives originated and who may
have possessed them before
they got into Nichols’ home.
The extraordinary discovery,
just three weeks from the 10th
anniversary of the bombing of
the federal building in
Oklahoma City, which killed
168 people, is likely to prove a
new embarrassment to an FBI
already burned by missteps in
this case and the pre-Sept. 11
Nichols, who is serving multi-
ple life prison sentences on fed-
eral and state charges, hasn’t
lived at the property in years,
and FBI officials said the infor-
mation that led to the discovery
indicated Nichols had buried
the evidence before the attack
on April 19, 1995.
One of Nichols’ attorneys
said Friday the discovery was
either a hoax or a major failure
by the FBI to find all evidence
after searching the home
numerous times.
“They were there often,” said
attorney Brian Hermanson,
who represented Nichols in last
year’s Oklahoma state murder
trial that ended with Nichols’
conviction. “It’s surprising. I
would think they would have
done their job and found every-
thing that was there.”
“But I’m still suspicious that
it could be something planted
there,” Hermanson said. “The
house was empty for several
years and if somebody wanted
to put something there to
incriminate Terry they had plen-
ty of time to have done it.”
Dan Defenbaugh, the retired
FBI agent who ran the
Oklahoma City investigation,
said he was dismayed that his
agency may have missed the evi-
dence. “When you do a search
warrant of that importance, you
have to make sure it’s thor-
ough,” he said.
FBI agents went to the prop-
erty Thursday night and then
summoned a bomb squad after
finding the potentially danger-
ous materials, Lanza said. The
search ended late Friday after-
noon and the evidence was
being shipped to the FBI lab
outside Washington.
Lanza said the material was
buried in the crawl space under
about a foot of rock, dirt and
gravel, an area that had not
been searched during the origi-
nal investigation.
“Depending on the situation,
that’s something that may not
necessarily be searched, espe-
cially given the fact that there
was no information there was
anything in there, and even if
you searched the crawl space at
that time and dug through the
rock and rubble you wouldn’t
find anything until you went at
least a foot down,” he said.
Lanza said the information
that spurred the search indicat-
ed that “Nichols was responsi-
ble for hiding these devices” and
“we are operating under the
assumption that Terry Nichols
put them there.”
Nichols and McVeigh, who
was put to death for his role in
the Oklahoma City bombing,
had used blasting caps, fertilizer
and fuel to make the bomb used
to destroy the Alfred P. Murrah
Federal Building.
McVeigh’s trial lawyer
Stephen Jones said Friday he
has known some materials gath-
ered for the attack were never
located by the FBI and this dis-
covery could answer some of
those questions.

Steroids killing competitive nature and honesty of sports
Drug-infested athletes in professional
baseball have broken legendary records
for years, and now Congress is finally
stepping in.
Major League Baseball is not only pro-
moting illegal use of drugs, but also influ-
encing youth that cheating and lying is
OK. The league finally has to answer
questions about its dark underbelly.
America’s pastime, which used to be a
celebration of sport, is now a scientific
experiment of chemical reactions. Men
look like the Incredible Hulk. While they
keep growing, the players hide behind
lies and cowardice, suggesting another
part of their anatomy is shrinking.
Not long ago, steroids were unheard-of
in high school athletics. Now one of
every 16 athletes takes performance-
enhancing drugs. Professional athletes
are role models, whether they want to be
or not. When kids start looking up to
druggies, it becomes a problem.
Donald Hooton
testified to Congress
about his high school
son, who after taking
steroids, committed
suicide in 2003.
“Players that are
guilty of taking
steroids are not only
cheaters, you are
cowards,” he said. “Show our kids that
you’re man enough to face authority, tell
the truth and face the consequences.
Instead, you hid behind the skirts of your
union, and with the help of management
and your lawyers you’ve made every
effort to resist facing the public today.”
Just because this problem is in sports,
people think Congress should not get
involved. Sports are not a necessity of
society. It’s pathetic that entertainers and
athletes are paid more than teachers and
doctors. The league, from a business point
of view, is a billion-
dollar corporation.
Players who cheat
and lie to increase
their salaries need to
be reprimanded.
Steroid policies in
the Olympics are
tough. If athletes test
positive for steroids,
they are banned from the games for two
years. Baseball players who test positive
four times might face one-year bans.
What if you found out that your fel-
low employees were cheating in order
to get ahead, and your boss wasn’t
doing a thing about it, maybe even
offhandedly encouraging it? You
might end up cheating right along
with them. But is that what we
are coming to? Are honesty,
hard work and integrity really
not priorities anymore? If not,
humanity has taken a giant leap backward.
✦Higgins is a Littleton, Colo., senior in
Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and
other steroid users with phenomenal nat-
ural ability deserve to be put up on a pub-
lic platform and pelted with fastballs by
the pitchers they undermined for so many
years. For steroid users with mediocre
talent, it isn’t as easy to judge.
The decision of whether or not to cheat
is something an athlete deals with all the
time. In the case of a minor league base-
ball player or a professional bench
warmer, there is much incentive to use ille-
gal performance enhancing drugs.
The drugs could be a stepping-stone to
reach the next level. While teammates
are in the locker room “juicing” each
other, taking their game to the next level
and earning more money and playing
time, the mediocre player is faced with
the decision of whether or not to join his
colleagues in cheating. If he doesn’t, he
may never realize his dream of making it
in the big leagues.
What makes the decision even more
difficult is the fact that the people who are
there to ensure a level playing field turn a
blind eye to the cheating, or even encour-
age it. In his book, “Juiced:
Wild Times, Rampant
‘Roids, Smash Hits
and How
Baseball Got Big,”
Jose Canseco
claimed that while
George W. Bush was
part owner of the
Texas Rangers, he
knew about steroid
use among his play-
ers, including All-
stars Ivan Rodriguez,
Raphael Palmeiro, and Juan Gonzalez.
Canseco, a former major league base-
ball player and avid steroid user, believes
it would be impossible for anyone within
MLB not to know about the rampant use
of steroids. People associated with MLB
insist Canseco is lying, but there has yet
to be a defamation suit against him.
According to Canseco, 80 percent of
professional players use steroids; other
more conservative estimates range from 10
to 30 percent. With it being so easy to get
away with cheating, why shouldn’t players
take the chance of crippling their bodies in
order to accomplish their lifelong dream?
Steven Michalik, former Mr. U.S.A.,
Mr. America and steroid user, said that
steroids bring a per-
son’s per-
sonality traits to the
“If you are a little
psycho, you become a
big psycho,” he said.
He also claimed
that steroids greatly
increased his libido
and corrupted his
morals and values.
Michalik blamed steroids for his liver and
heart disease, impotence, and even a stay
in a mental institution.
Then again, Jose Canseco and some
others with extensive knowledge on
steroids claim that the drugs can be per-
fectly safe if used under close medical
The reasons not to use steroids are sim-
ple: They can be harmful to the body, they
are illegal and cheating shows a lack of
integrity and respect. On the other hand,
the incentives to take steroids are possibly
even more lucrative: It could help a ball
player accomplish a lifelong dream and
possibly even earn a multi-million dollar
Imagine that you had always dreamed
of becoming a doctor or a lawyer, but
when you went to
take the
exam, all of your peers were
cheating, inflating the score
necessary for you to pass. If
you didn’t join in on the
cheating, you could never
reach the pinnacle you had
always dreamed about.
Would it even be consid-
ered cheating if everyone
else were doing it? If you
knew you could get
away with it, would
you do it, too?

Dear Alex,
Say it isn’t so. Tell me that you are not consid-
ering transferring from the premier basketball
school in the nation. Tell me that this is an April
Fools’ Day joke.
Where else would you want to go? Rutgers?
Pittsburgh? Georgetown? They’re all schools
that you visited when you re-opened your recruit-
ing last year.
The Big East may be the top conference in the
country next year, but
those schools will not
be able to match the
enthusiasm that is
given to basketball
players here in
Lawrence. Those
schools don’t have 1
percent of the tradi-
tion that Kansas’ bas-
ketball program has
to offer.
There is no other
place in the country
where basketball
players are more idol-
ized than here at the
University. You get recognized wherever you
walk. You get to play for the most knowledgeable
fans in the country. Fans recognized you when
you came to Lawrence on your recruiting visit last
year. Not too many schools can say that they have
fans that know what their recruits look like. You
are clearly a fan favorite.
If you leave, you are going to miss playing in
front of 16,300 fans every home game — the sell-
out exhibition games against Division II teams
because the fans want to see you play. You get a
standing ovation every time you walk out on the
court, more than an hour before tip-off.
You received the most playing time of any of
the five freshmen in your class. Where else in the
country would you be able make a three-point
shot on New Year’s Day against Georgia Tech or
make difficult shots at Rupp Arena against
Kentucky? You exuberate the kind of confidence
that fans in Lawrence love, and your passion for
the game is great. This team needs your shooting
skill. You were one of the few players who were
able to knock down that difficult shot when it
mattered most.
Your coach knows he put you in a difficult
position at times. Most of the time you played this
year you did so in a foreign position, guarding a
post player. Time after time you were put in this
tough spot, yet you were still able to be successful.

Aggies too much
for Jayhawks
The Kansas softball team extended its losing
skid to six after two losses to No. 6 Texas A&M
this weekend. The Jayhawks lost 13-1 on
Saturday and fell 7-1 yesterday.
On Saturday, Kansas started strong during the
first five innings, but the A&M squad was able to
score nine times during the final two innings. In
the top of the seventh, Scarborough nailed a three-
run home run off the scoreboard that broke the
game open. Elle Pottorf, freshman catcher, made
two throw-outs for the Jayhawks on Saturday.
Christina Ross, freshman pitcher, started the
game for Kansas and pitched for the first two
innings, striking out the side in the first before
Serena Settlemier, junior pitcher and co-captain,
finished the game. After a rough sixth inning,
Settlemier came back strong in the seventh.
Settlemier said the players had been stuck in a
rut, but he was confident they could get back in
their groove and move on.
She said she has struggled with her location
this season.
“I focused on hitting my spots and keeping the
ball in the zone today,” she said.
The Jayhawks pulled within two in the fifth off
a RBI single from Jessica Moppin, junior second
baseman. But the Aggies pulled away late in the
game, eventually winning by six.

Seniors win final home meet
The last home regatta on
Saturday left the Kansas rowing
team’s seniors with some good
memories. All four varsity
Jayhawk boats took first place.
The warm, sunny day brought
families and friends to a seg-
ment of the Kansas River near
Second and Indiana streets to
honor the six seniors.
“I’m really proud of the
team,” Kansas coach Rob
Catloth said. “Since it was our
only home event, it was nice to
have a big crowd here. It was a
good show for our fans.”
Senior rower Rachel
Chapman was on the first varsi-
ty eight boat and said she was
pleased with the team’s results.
“We didn’t let any outside fac-
tors affect us,” she said.
Both varsity eight boats —
boats manned by eight rowers
— were ahead basically the
whole way. The first varsity
eight boat time for the Jayhawks
was 6:27.6, and Tulsa finished
with a time of 6:44.0. Kansas
broke off at 250 meters and
picked up for the sprint part of
the race. Drake started to make
a move on Tulsa, but came in
third with a 6:51.2 finish.
“We had good rhythm the
whole way,” Chapman said. “We
were able to pick up even more at
the end. So it felt really good.”
The second varsity eight boat
finished with a time of 6:45.9,
with Tulsa finishing at 7:06.4 and
Drake at 7:17.8. Other victories
included the second varsity four
boat at 7:33.1 and the first varsity
four boat at 7:20.3. Senior rower

stayed pretty calm throughout

and rowed right past them.”

Simien to be
recognized as
a top senior
Wayne Simien was announced as a winner of
the fourth annual Celebrating Loyalty and
Achievement for Staying in School Award. The
award is given to the nation’s top men’s and
women’s college basketball seniors.
The winners were announced Saturday in St.
Louis. The awards ceremony
will be April 30 at the Westin
Crown Center hotel in Kansas
City, Mo.
The other four honorees on the
Senior CLASS first team were
Vermont’s Taylor Coppenrath,
Marquette’s Travis Deiner,
Oklahoma State’s Joey Graham
and Hakim Warrick of Syracuse.
Voting was conducted nation-
wide by coaches, media and fans.
“This means a lot,” Simien said. “I know it’s an
award that hasn’t been around for a long time, but
just looking at the past winners, you see what
kind of award this is.”
Kansas coach Bill Self, who is at the Final Four
in St. Louis with Simien, said the Leavenworth
native deserved all his postseason accolades.
“He had the best season of any player I’ve ever
coached,” Self said.
Simien was a finalist for the Naismith award,
given to college basketball’s top player, but it was
awarded to Utah center Andrew Bogut last night.
Kansas State forward Kendra Wecker won the
women’s Senior CLASS Award. She will join Simien
as a guest of honor at the April 30 ceremony.

Kansas coach Bill Self confirmed rumors Friday
that freshman forward Alex Galindo could transfer
to a school closer to his home in Newark, N.J.
“I was notified this morning by a radio station
that there was a rumor concern-
ing Alex Galindo, and they
asked me if there was any truth
to the rumor,” Self said. “There
is certainly a possibility that he
could transfer and there is also a
possibility that he could stay. He
has been very open.”
Self said he would meet with
Galindo and make an
announcement early this week.
Galindo averaged almost four
points and nine minutes a game for the Jayhawks
this season. He proved to be a legitimate three–point
threat, averaging 44 percent from behind the arc.
The freshman forward hit critical three-pointers in
victories against Georgia Tech and Texas A&M.
Galindo said there was a possibility that he
could transfer, but didn’t say it was definite.
“Coach and I have met a couple of times since
the season ended,” Galindo said. “There is still a
lot of stuff to think about and talk about when he
gets from St. Louis.”

“We did how we were expected to
do,” Devins, University Daily
Kansan sportswriter, said. “We did a
solid job and won our share.”
Saturday gave the team a good
feeling about the rest of the season.
“Our first race showed us a lot of
progress that we have made from
last season,” novice rower Quentin
Odes, Chicago senior, said. “Things
are looking good.”
First place finishes for Saturday
included the women’s varsity four,
men’s varsity four and women’s
lightweight four. Other races such as
the women’s and men’s varsity eight
finished in second place.
“We didn’t win all our races, but
we know what we need to do
improve,” varsity rower Anna
Foerster, Topeka sophomore, said.
Omaha brought a quick turn-
around for the team. But the rowers
didn’t seem to mind.
“It kind of warms you up,” novice
rower Tricia Blackburn, Overland
Park freshman, said. “Since we just
had a race at KU, you would think it
would be stressful, but it’s not. It sort
of gets painful, race after race, but it
just makes you want to leave noth-
ing behind.”
The team usually makes a quick
recovery when it competes two days
in a row, Odes said.
Yesterday’s victories included
first-place finishes in the men’s varsi-
ty eight, women’s varsity four and
both heats of the men’s varsity four.
“Sunday was a much better day
than Saturday,” Devins said. “We
improved in every boat and had
great success in our efforts as a
The team won the men’s varsity
eight for the first time in five years.
Coach Jeremy Struemph said the
program was moving up.
“It was an overall great day,” he
said. “I’m really proud of the way
they rowed. It was an excellent per-

Teams join up at season opener
Kansas loses to Baylor;
swept in doubles matches
After posting two straight
road victories for the first time
this season, the Kansas women’s
tennis team (4-11, 3-4 Big 12)
fell to 12th-ranked Baylor, 6-1,
in Waco, Texas, on Saturday.
“It was a good win for us,”
Baylor coach Joey Scrivano
Baylor, which reached its
highest-ever ranking at No. 12
last week, has won four
straight matches and 14 of its
last 15.
The Bears were without two
of their top players, freshman
Zuzana Zemenova and sopho-
more Klara Zrustrova. Both
players did not play as a result of
their involvement in tournament
matches last fall, Scrivano said.
The Jayhawks failed to regis-
ter a victory in the doubles com-
petition, falling in all three
In singles, Kansas managed
to earn a point, courtesy of
freshman Elizaveta Avdeeva.
The native of Obninsk,
Russia, defeated Baylor’s
Carolin Walter in straight sets,
6-2, 6-2.
“She is going to be a heck of
a college player,” Scrivano said
of Avdeeva. “I was impressed
with her poise on the court. I
give her a lot of credit.”
The Jayhawks fell 4-3 to
Texas Tech Sunday in Lubbock,
Avdeeva got past Cigdem
Duru in three sets, 7-5, 0-6, 7-6.
Avdeeva has won six matches
since joining the team in early
Junior Christine Skoda fin-
ished off Janet Durham in
straight sets, 6-3, 6-0. The for-
mer Big 12 Player of the Week
is (5-2) in the Big 12
Freshman Stephanie Smith,
who saw her two-match win
streak snapped versus Baylor,
redeemed herself with a victory
against Katja Kovacic, 6-1, 1-6,
The Jayhawks lost the dou-
bles point for the second
straight match, failing to win a
single match.
The Jayhawks will return
home this week and take a
break from conference action,

in practice and put them into the race, and that’s
what they did.”
The novice team struggled but walked away
with second-place finishes in its three races: First
Novice Eight, First Novice Four and Second
Novice Four. Assistant coach Jennifer Myers,
who heads the novice team, expressed some dis-
“We have the ability, but mentally we need to
get tougher,” she said.
This week the novice women will practice
some longer race pieces so the shorter races
won’t seem as hard, she said.
The races were followed by senior recognition
and a barbeque.
Individually the seniors came up for recogni-
tion with their families.
As a senior, Kramer said she was upset about
this regatta being the last one in Lawrence, but
also realized most of her season was ahead of her.
“It’s sad that it’s the last one here, but it will be
different at the end,” she said. “Being a senior
won’t really hit me until the last race of the sea-
Chapman said she shared Kramer’s feeling.
“We still have so much of our season left,” she
said. “This is only our third regatta. I’m sure it’ll
get more sad at the end though.”
The coaches have been proud of the seniors
and are excited to continue the rest of the season,
Myers said.
“They have provided a lot of leadership for our
program,” she said. “They’re really showing our
younger rowers and coxswains what it takes to be
a class act.”
The Jayhawks will race again this Saturday in
Manhattan for the Kansas Cup.

junior college transfer
The Jayhawks landed another junior college

Championship game features
‘team’ versus ‘talent’ matchup
ST. LOUIS — The best team in the country all
season is an underdog today. By now, Illinois is
used to it.
Even though they’ve only lost once, have tied
the NCAA record for wins
and have been ranked
No. 1 in the country
since December, the
Illini (37-1) have had
trouble getting their
due much of the sea-
Never has that been
more true than in the
buildup to tonight’s
championship game,
when Illinois faces
North Carolina (32-4) in
a matchup being billed
as Team vs. Talent.
Illinois is the
“Team.” North
Carolina has the
The Illini say they don’t
take offense to the comparison.
Often during their interviews yesterday,
though, they found themselves defending the
way they’re perceived — as the unsung group of
guys who “play the game the right way,” com-
pared to Carolina’s group of stars.
“We have NBA people at our games every
time,” Illini coach Bruce Weber said. “We’re
going to have some guys drafted, whether it’s
this year or next year. But we don’t have quite
the names, I guess, and athletic guys that maybe
they have.”
The reason the Tar Heels get the edge starts
with Sean May, the 6-foot-9 center who aver-
ages 17.1 points and 10.9 rebounds this sea-
North Carolina also has Rashad McCants,
Jawad Williams and Raymond Felton. They’ll all
go to the NBA soon, as will the sixth man, fresh-
man forward Marvin Williams.
“They’ll have a lottery pick coming off their
bench,” Illinois forward James Augustine said.
“They’re obviously more talented. But when it
comes down to the situation, it’s who’s the better
Nobody has won more than Illinois — ever.
With their 72-57 victory over Louisville in the
semifinals, the Illini matched Duke (1986, 1989)
and UNLV (1987) for the most wins in a single
season with 37.

✦ Today’s Birthday.
Others look to you for leadership this
year. Rely on your experience, and tac-
tics that worked before. Don’t lose
momentum when you make a mistake.
You don’t have time for that.
✦ Aries (March 21-April 19) Today is an 8.
Conditions are good for meeting with
others to figure out what to do next.
You’ve got the idea, they know what to
do, and voila! You’re on your way.
✦ Taurus (April 20-May 20) Today is a 5.
Take your time as you decide which
items to buy, and which to do without.
You have a talent for setting priorities,
especially where money's concerned.
✦ Gemini (May 21-June 21) Today is a 9.
Romance and travel are both highly
favored. You’re also very good at soak-
ing up information and teaching it,
practically at the same time. This
ought to be fun.
✦ Cancer (June 22-July 22) Today is a 4.
It’ll take a while to learn how to use
the latest technology, but that’s noth-
ing compared to the time you’ll save.
Get into it.
✦ Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Today is a 9.
True love is based more on substance
than on symbolism, you know. Choose
the person who makes you think to be
your permanent partner. The con-
frontation will keep you sharp.
✦ Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Today is a 4.
You’re pretty good with electronics
and other kinds of new technology,
after you get into it. Be patient with
✦ Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Today is an 8.
A meaningful conversation with an
exciting person can help you discover
the next step in your spiritual evolu-
tion. Study religion from a scientific
point of view, and vice versa.
✦ Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Today is a 5.
There’s lots of activity going on at your
place, and creativity is required. It's
good to have a plan, of course, but
don't get too attached to it.
✦ Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Today is
an 8. You’re a rather independent type,
but lately you may find you've been in
the mood to make a commitment. Go
ahead — the sooner, the better.
✦ Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today is a
5. Cleaning out your closets is a chore
you don't relish, but this time it could
be quite profitable. Keep sorting and
filing and putting things away, and
you'll be well rewarded.
✦ Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Today is a 9.
Your investigation goes very well now,
with one thing leading to another.
Continue to seek the truth and it shall
be revealed to you.
✦ Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Today is a 4.
The work you're doing behind the
scenes is making a good impression.
You’re not asking for fame or glory,
and that adds to your credibility.

Catch me if you can
Nothing went the Jayhawks’
way yesterday, particularly
when Pottorf went down with
an injury to her leg in the top of
the third, when A&M third
baseman Jamie Hinshaw ran
into her. Pottorf hung onto the
ball and got the out. The extent
of her injury is unknown. She
was replaced by Ashley
Goodrich, junior outfielder.
Kansas coach Tracy Bunge
said of the Aggies, “They’re a
team that is pretty much on fire.
I’m really impressed with the
way they’re playing ball. My
hats off to coach (Jo) Evans and
her staff.”
Amanda Scarborough, A&M
freshman pitcher earned the
victories for both games, mov-
ing her overall record to a stel-
lar 20-0. She earned Big 12
Pitcher of the Week and the
USA Softball National Player of
the Week for games last week.
The Aggies broke both games
open in the sixth inning. On
Saturday, they were able to
score four runs on two hits in
the sixth to gain a seven-run
lead. Yesterday, they put four
on the board in the sixth,
including a three-run triple
from Jamie Hinshaw.
Texas A&M had an arsenal
that included center fielder
Sharonda McDonald. She stole
four bases during the weekend
becoming the career record hold-
er in stolen bases at Texas A&M
in only a season and a half.
Bunge said McDonald could be
the fastest player in the country.
“If she puts anything down on
the field that is halfway decent,
she is going to beat it out,”
Bunge said. “If she gets on base,
she’s going to steal second and
then she’s going to steal third.”
McDonald has stolen 49 bases
consecutively without being
thrown out. The team is next in
action against UMKC tomorrow
at Arrocha Ballpark. Game time
is scheduled for 3 p.m.
Bunge said she would look
for the team to take a little frus-
tration out on UMKC.
“We need to play hard and
play aggressively and see what
happens,” she said.

Aggies rally
to take 2 in 3
game series
Winning the first game of a
three-game series usually bodes
well for the rest of the weekend.
Don’t tell that to the Kansas
baseball team.
For the second consecutive
weekend, the Jayhawks failed to
turn a series-opening victory
into a series victory. Texas
A&M, like Nebraska the week-
end before, rallied to win the
last two games of the series. The
Jayhawks dropped to 22-12
overall and 2-4 in Big 12
Conference play.
Kansas junior first baseman
Jared Schweitzer’s two-run dou-
ble in the top of the 12th inning
scored junior Ritchie Price and
senior Sean Richardson and
gave the Jayhawks a 7-5 victory
against the No. 16 Aggies Friday
night. The Jayhawks had to rally
after relinquishing an early 4-0
lead. Senior pitcher Mike
Zagurski had a solid outing,
going 6 1/3 innings and allow-
ing two runs. Junior Don Czyz
(3-1) picked up the victory in an
extended relief appearance. The
Jayhawks’ closer pitched 4 1/3
innings and struck out five.
The double by Schweitzer
extended his hitting streak to
seven games.
“This was one of the greatest
games that I have been a part of,”
Kansas coach Ritch Price said of
the victory. “We were able to over-
come some mistakes and keep
fighting to come up with a win
over a quality team on the road.”
Saturday’s game was a differ-
ent story. Texas A&M pounded
Kansas pitching for 19 hits en
route to a 12-4 victory. With a 4-
2 lead in the third, Kansas sen-
ior starter Clint Schambach was
roughed up for five runs before
leaving the game. The Aggies
ran away from there, giving sen-
ior pitcher Kyle Marlatt his
fourth victory of the season.
Schambach fell to 2-3.
Richardson was a bright spot
for Kansas offensively. He went 2-
3 with two RBI. The Aggies were
paced by junior first baseman
Colby Mavroulis and sophomore
third baseman Austin Boggs.
Both homered and had two RBI.
“They came out swinging the
bats and jumped on us early,”
Price said. “We came back and
took the lead in the third, and I
really liked our chances. Then
all of a sudden the floodgates
kind of opened.”
Yesterday’s game was well-
pitched by both teams. Kansas
jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the
second inning on a single by
freshman designated hitter
Brock Simpson. Junior pitcher
Kodiak Quick gave up only
three runs before leaving the
game in the bottom of the sixth
with the Jayhawks trailing 3-1.
Richardson brought the
Jayhawks closer, making it 3-2
with a sacrifice fly in the sev-
enth. That was as close as
Kansas would get because the
Aggies added two more runs in
the bottom of the inning. The
Jayhawks’ rally fell short in the
ninth, and Texas A&M defeated
Kansas 7-5. Quick took the loss
and dropped to 7-3.
Texas A&M improved its
record to 22-10 overall and 4-5 in
the conference. Their season con-
tinues with a Tuesday game
against Sam Houston State before
going to Missouri next weekend.
Kansas will return to action
Wednesday in Hoglund
Ballpark against in-state rival
Wichita State in the first of four
games between the two clubs
this season.

Caleb Santos-Silva, Wichita freshman, dives out into the air after the ball during a game of catch with
Kyle Owens, Kansas State freshman, behind Ellsworth Hall on Daisy Hill yesterday afternoon. Many students
dotted the hill yesterday to play sports, lay out, read or just relax. Daisy Hill wasn’t the only place on cam-
pus where people were enjoying the warm weather. Students were behind Oliver Hall performing similar
activities, while others lounged by the pool at Naismith Hall.
