An entire bedroom in Spencer
Lotts house is flled with trash bags
and plastic containers full of pup-
pets. On a shelf, a replica of actor Don
Knotts sits next to a green troll that
hides under a bridge from the chil-
drens story Tree Billy Goats Gruf.
Te room is Lotts studio and its
where he creates puppets of all shapes,
sizes and colors.
Lott, Lawrence junior and pup-
peteer, will use a few of these pup-
pets to narrate and act out some
of Shel Silversteins poetry and
short stories on Saturday at
Oread Books in the Kansas
Union in honor of National
Poetry Month.
Its fun and challenging
for me because its almost
an improv, said Lott,
who described himself
as a huge fan of chil-
drens literature. Its a lot of audience
participation and if Im feeling that
Im doing a character and its working,
then I keep it up.
Lott, a theater and flm major and
the one-man show behind Squiggle
Puppet Productions, has been present-
ing puppet shows for children at Oread
Books since Spring 2007. In addition
to Saturdays show, he will present an-
other show Saturday, May 2.
Lisa Eitner, general books buyer for
Oread Books, said Lotts past shows
have ranged from his own stories to
dramatic readings to stories with shad-
ow puppets.
As many as 100 people have come to
the shows in the past, Eitner said, and
the shows had to be moved to a big-
ger space in the store for a larger than
expected crowd.
Its something out of the
ordinary and he is really
quite talented and cre-
ates something that is
worth experiencing,
Eitner said.
For Lott, creating
something out of the
ordinary starts
with the ordi-
nary. He uses

such as foam,

In Kansas first and second
round NIT match-ups, the total
attendance for each game never
topped 2,000 fans.
This wasnt the case for
Wednesday nights semifinal vic-
tory against the Illinois State
Redbirds. Kansas attendance,
8,360, vaulted it into the No. 5 spot
on the Allen Fieldhouse single-
game attendance record list for
womens games.
The expectations for atten-
dance numbers at Saturdays 1
p.m. WNIT championship game
against South Florida at 1 p.m.
were set high, said Jim Marchiony,
associated athletics director.
Our goal is to break the atten-
dance record, which is 13,352,
Marchiony said. I see it as a real-
istic goal.
Wednesdays game was the first
KU basketball game to be played in
the Fieldhouse in April, Marchiony
said. He also said that the WNIT
championship would mark the
first time a national championship
game was held in the Fieldhouse.
I think this is great for the
womens basketball program
because of the attention it receives,
Marchiony said. It is also good
for the athletic department and

Politician and journalist George
Stephanopoulos will visit Lawrence
April 7 to answer students ques-
tions about his life experiences and
thoughts on politics.
The event is free and open to
students and the public but tickets
are required.
Briana Saunders, social events
coordinator, said Student Union
Activities was out of tickets for
the event in the Union ballroom.
Students interested can still get
tickets to watch the lecture from a
live feed in Woodruff Auditorium.
Stephanopoulos is well-known
for his role as a senior political
adviser for the
1992 Clinton
c a mp a i g n
and for his
on a variety
of news tele-
vision shows.
I think
George Stephanopoulos is a good
person to bring to KU because
he is a younger journalist and has
experienced a lot of things that go
on in politics that affect students
daily lives, Saunders, Vancouver,
British Columbia, senior, said. Hes
engaging and entertaining and he
really understands the direction
the country is going.
Stephanopoulos will be inter-
viewed by Jonathan Earle, associate
director for programming at the
Dole Institute of Politics, before the
conversation opens up for audience
questions in a town-hall format.
I want to touch upon things
during the interview that matter to
students and things that mat-
ter to the community as well,
Earle said. People definitely
want to hear how he thinks the
Obama administration is doing
in its first 100 days.
Students are encouraged to
e-mail questions they would
like to ask Stephanopoulos to
the SUA social issue commit-
tee and several will be chosen
to be asked during the event.

received many questions yet.

On Thursday, however, they said
they were willing to work with him
to fnd a way he can keep the site.
Playmobil does not object to
biblical scenes. The problem is doll
mutilation. For example, the dolls
arms were deformed heat by to

Review: Besides the various piz-
zas, sandwiches and salads on its
menu, Ingredient lets customers
be the chefs by allowing them to
create their own salad or pizza.
Customers can choose from more
than 85 ingredients for salads and
25 ingredients for pizzas.
When frst coming to Ingredi-
ent, I expected the restaurant to
have more of a caf atmosphere
and serve standard sandwiches
and salads. Instead, Ingredient
lived up to its name. Both the
salad and pizza I ordered tasted
like they were made fresh with the
best ingredients. Plus the portions
were large enough to share.
The dcor had a modern edge
but the restaurant felt informal
because customers ordered food
at the counter, and then the server
brought it to them. The service
was a little slow, but worth the
wait since the food was made
fresh. Since Ingredient sits on a
corner and has foor-to-ceiling
windows, its a nice place to eat
with friends and watch the people
passing by on Mass Street.
The prices at Ingredient are a
little high for a college students
budget, but are ofset considering
the large portions of food and its
no-tipping policy. Instead of tip-
ping, Ingredient suggests giving
a few dollars to charity, perform-
ing a random act of kindness or
putting a quarter in an expired
parking meter.
Ingredient is open Monday
through Thursday 11 a.m. to 9
p.m., Friday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.,
Saturday 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and

Four myths for long life contain truth
Staying healthy can be confus-
ing. So many food and lifestyle
plans exist, from organic to low-
sodium to low-carb, that it can be
hard to separate myth from reality.
Lynn Marotz, assistant professor
in the applied behavioral science
department, and Anne Chapman,
coordinator of nutrition services
at Watkins Memorial Health Cen-
ter, discuss the fact and fction in
these four health myths.
Myth 1: Drinking tea low-
ers the risk of heart disease and
Marotz said as far as the stud-
ies are concerned, this claim is still
pretty controversial. She said there
was not a good consensus about
the benefts of tea.
If a person were really seri-
ous about that, they should go to
a place that sells loose tea leaves,
Marotz said. Tey have to learn
how to brew it themselves, the
right way, in order to get the ben-
eft out of it.
Chapman said there were anti-
oxidants found in teas that do pro-
tect the heart.
All teas white tea, black tea
and green tea all have some
kind of antioxidant properties,
Chapman said.
Myth 2: Walking at least thirty
minutes a day keeps you ft.
According to the article Sur-
prising Signs Youll Live Longer
Tan You Tink, on,
people who walk for about 30 min-
utes a day are more likely to live
longer than those who walk less.
Chapman said it was important
to walk between 30 and 60 min-
utes a day.
It reduces your risk for disease
and promotes longevity and re-
duces stress, Chapman said.
One national campaign called
for people to walk 10,000 steps,
roughly fve miles, a day, Marotz
said. Participants wore a pedom-
eter to keep track of how many
steps they took each day.
Its an easy way to exercise,
Marotz said. Te idea is to keep
moving. Studies have shown that
people who walk more tend to live
Myth 3: Eating purple foods
such as grapes and blueberries
keeps your blood vessels healthy.
Te same article said these foods
get their rich color from polyphe-
nols, which reduce heart disease
risk and may also protect against
Alzheimers disease.
Marotz disagrees with this claim.
She said there was no superfood.
Tey are all equally important,
Marotz said. Te problem with
pulling one out, and saying this
is what you need to eat more of,
is that you miss out on all of the
She said eating a diet that was
colorful was key to getting all the
vitamins and minerals needed.
Chapman also said it was essen-
tial to eat a variety of foods.
One of the recommendations is
to eat a rainbow of foods, Chap-
man said.
Myth 4: Staying in school will
help you live longer.
According to a Harvard Medi-
cal School study, people with more
than 12 years of formal education
live 18 months longer on average
than those with fewer years of
schooling. Researchers hypoth-
esize that this is because people
with more education are less likely
to smoke.
Chapman said that education is
Te more educated people are,
the more apt they are to make
healthy decisions, Chapman said.
Marotz said all people make
bad decisions now and then. But
she said it helps to surround your-
self with people who do positive
things, and that people with more
education make more informed

the puppets in his studio.
Lott said he always wanted to be
a puppeteer, becoming interested in
it from watching too much Sesame
Street. He started making his own
puppets in ffh grade by converting
stufed animals into puppets.
Since then, he has made literally
hundreds of puppets. Depending on
the complexity, it can take Lott any-
where from a few hours to hundreds
of hours to make one puppet.
Teyre never really done, he
said. I just get tired of working on
them to a certain point and then I
move on.
When Lott and his roommates
were looking for a place to live, Lott
said having a room for his puppets
was a must. Lott pays twice the rent
he pays for one room for himself
and one room for his puppets.
Its kind of absurd, he said. But
this is my passion and this is how I
pay for rent, building puppets and
doing shows. Its totally worth it.
Matt Cain, Leawood junior and
Lotts roommate, said Lott was
spontaneous and kept the house
entertaining with his puppeteering
and acting antics.
He goes around doing diferent
voices sometimes, Cain said.
But for Lott, the diferent voices
of characters are only one part of the
creative process. He has presented
other shows for libraries, schools
and has held local workshops for
children or interested students.
Two years ago, Lott was also one
of 50 people chosen from the United
States and Canada to attend a work-
shop with Sesame Street muppe-
teers. Last semester, he designed
the puppets for Te King Stag,
a production by the University of
Kansas Teatre for Young People.
He is currently creating two pup-
pets a depressed Russian horse
and a Japanese bamboo spirit for
three one-act operas that KU Opera
will perform later this month.
When he graduates next May,
Lott said he wanted to do a national
tour like Sesame Street Live or
Walking with Dinosaurs before
possibly attending the University of
Connecticut, which has a masters
program in puppetry.
For now, Lott plans to keep cre-
ating puppets and sharing his work
with others. Lott said puppeteers
are not like magicians, who might
spend 20 years working on a trick
and keep the secret of the trick from
their audiences.
Puppeteers are like Its taken me
20 years to learn this trick and Im
going to give it to you the frst time I
meet you so that you can take it and
make it better, he said.

online. Stanley said he got the idea
for the project when his friend, a
graduate in health, sports and ex-
ercise science, mentioned starting
a gym that provided its own power
for the building. Stanley said the
idea stuck with him and he started
researching possibilities. When
he found, he started
working with the company and
the director of the recreation cen-
ter, Mary Chappell, to bring the
technology to the University.
Stanley presented the idea to
Envision presidential candidate
J.J. Siler and vice presidential can-
didate Alex Porte for support.
Tere was a lot of enthusiasm,
and I knew it was something a
large amount of people could get
excited about, Stanley said.
Porte, Great Falls, Va., junior,
said Envision pushed for the idea
for a long time, and was proud
when the funding came through.
Tis is something we brought
to the student body and its im-
portant that we got it done, Porte
said. We just happened to get it
done before we were elected.
Porte said though Envision
helped make the project a reality,
Stanley was the driving force be-
hind the operation.
We kind of put him on our
shoulders and gave him our full
support, Porte said. Hes really
the one who followed it through
from concept to reality.
Stanley said he worked with
engineering and architectural
students to fgure out blueprints
of the building and gather other
information ReRev would need to
submit a proposal to the Univer-
Silvia Reshmeen, Dhaka, Ban-
gladesh graduate student in archi-
tectural engineering, met Stanley
through Engineers Without Bor-
ders and helped him acquire the
buildings blueprints.
Stanley said he thought the
project would be a good way for
sustainability eforts to be linked
directly to the University.
We have good ideas and every-
one talks about sustainability, but
I havent seen a lot of new things
coming from it, Stanley said. I
thought this would be a good op-
portunity for something to come
of it. We could show were really
committed, and not just talking
about it.
Te elliptical machines will be
equipped with LCD boards to show
students how much energy they
are putting back into the building.
Stanley thought the boards would
prove important in getting student
attention for the project.
Maybe theyre not traditionally
thinking about energy, but theyre
seeing it in front of their faces so
hopefully we can spark a dialogue
that way, Stanley said.

Piano bar holds opening,
features dueling pianists
Last night was the grand
opening for Lawrences new
dueling piano bar, The Barrel
House, 729 New Hampshire St.,
which was originally scheduled
to open March 26.
Construction delays and
a wait for materials to arrive
caused twin sisters and Prairie
Village seniors Emily and Alex
Akers to rethink their bars
opening date.
We want people to be
impressed so we want to do
things right the frst time
instead of having to fx it once
we open, Emily said. This
whole week weve gotten very
little sleep.
The bar features four VIP
lounges and two pianists
who play songs requested by
audience members.
The bar has entertainment
booked for the next six months
and all of the VIP lounges are
reserved for this weekend.
Emily, Alex and their business
partner Danny Williams gave
tours of the bar before opening
and received positive feedback.
We just want to make sure
everyones satisfed when
they walk out, Emily said. Its
going to be a bumpy ride in
the beginning but after this

The Barrel House is open
from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. tonight

oo often, we hear stories
about collegiate teams
cracking under pressure
and committing foul play
recruiting violations, grade infla-
tion, even outright cheating. Its
refreshing to be a part of a univer-
sity that excels not only
on the court, but also
in the classroom, sans
Last fall semester,
University of Kansas
athletics set a record GPA. The
teams altogether averaged 2.99, and
of the 16 teams at the University, 10
averaged better than 3.0. Leading
the way was the womens golf team
with a combined GPA of 3.46,
followed by the volleyball teams
3.35 average. This is an impressive
accomplishment considering the
amount of time student athletes
commit to their sports.
Ray Bechard, volleyball coach,
said his players spent upwards of
20 hours per week in practice and
weight training during the season.
Allison Mayfield, Overland Park
freshman and outside hitter, said
she spent about 15 hours per week
studying or doing homework on
top of that, which she described as
nothing when compared to some of
her other teammates.
So what makes our University
special? Jim
Marchiony, associate
athletic director, said
a number of factors
went into student
athletes positive
academic showing. First, he said
students had to be self-motivated
to do well. Bechard agreed, say-
ing the University recruited good
students who managed their time
well. Second, Marchiony credited
the faculty with understanding
the pressure student athletes felt
to perform well and to juggle time
effectively, especially at a Division
I school.
And lastly, we need to credit the
University support staff, a network
of student and faculty tutors, who
Marchiony described as dedicated
individuals who knew what they
were doing and who cared about
the athletes. Mayfield takes advan-
tage of the offered help, going to
four hours of tutoring per week.
Bechard said very few universities
created the kind of atmosphere for
success like the University did.
I feel that at KU you are sur-
rounded by people who truly care
not only how well you are doing on
the court/field but also about how
well you are doing in your classes,
Mayfield said. If we ever needed
help with anything, there would
be five people to sit down and help
The University has been able
to stand out amongst competition
athletically and academically. So
next time you see an athlete walk-
ing down Jayhawk Blvd., heading
off to class, give them a high-five or
a well deserved pat on the back for
putting in the effort, and hours, to
contribute to the University on and
off the court.

Students should care
about local elections
Advance voting is open for
Lawrence city commission and
Lawrence school board elec-
tions. Voting early is easy and
fast: Show your ID, vote, youre
outta there. For those of you
thinking, What do I care about
Lawrence city commission?,
Im at KU,Id challenge you to
learn more and rethink your
approach. Local elections are
often as important, if not more
important, than elections for
national ofces, because it is the
few people on our city commis-
sion who make decisions about
the city bus system, the rental
registry (which will defnitely
afect you if you rent a house
or apartment in Lawrence!) and
other issues that afect us as KU
Continuing battles over eco-
nomic development will deter-
mine whether Lawrence remains
a hip university town or turns
into a suburb of a suburb of KC
and Topeka. I pay rent, I buy
food and gas and clothes here, I
spend lots of money downtown
and at Lawrence stores, so its
important to me that I have a
voice in helping Lawrence stay,
well, Lawrence-y.
And the school board elec-
tions concern us as well, even if
we dont have children or dont
plan to. School boards are the
arbiters of school curricula and
what children learn in schools is
often carried through into their
later belief-systems. The chil-
dren of the elementary and high
schools today are the students
who will be sitting in the desks
in KU classrooms tomorrow. The
policies that the school board
adopts today will be the ones
our kids or nieces and nephews
are subject to in a few years.
As KU students we may have
an even heightened respon-
sibility to be at least involved
enough to take 20 minutes
to read up on the candidates
(check the local paper or grab
a web address from the yard
signs all over town!) and another
10 minutes to drive downtown
to the courthouse at 11th and
Mass. to vote. College is a time
and this University is a place
where we are already thinking
about lots of these issues in our
courses and debating them with
friends. I came to the University
because I liked Lawrences vibe;
I vote because I want the vibe to
carry on. Im proud to be a Jay-
hawk and even though I might
only be living in Lawrence for a
few years, I do live here now and
I do want my voice to be heard.
So should you!

s everyone knows, sex sells.
What the corporate world
has learned progressively
throughout the past 20 years is that
hip-hop does as well. Although
initially reluctant to accept hip-hop
as the marketing gem it was bound
to become, it didnt take long
for big business to come around
after observing the near-infinite
buying potential of the hip-hop
Today, elements of hip-hop
culture are used as strategic tools
in national advertising campaigns
of a wide variety of popular brands.
Television viewers alone can turn
on their set and see Jay-Z selling
Hewlett-Packard PCs and even
Jeezy hocking Boost cell phones.
But things were not always this
Despite the sharp increase of
hip-hop album sales during the
1980s, mainstream corporations
were hesitant at first to engage in
endorsement deals with hip-hop
artists. Unfortunately, the general
consensus is that the cause for this
reluctance was rooted in the linger-
ing, racist assumptions of a hand-
ful of bigoted but powerful board
As the years went by and the
national popularity of hip-hop
skyrocketed, however, corporations
could not help but notice the level
of exposure hip-hop was receiving
in the form of music, graffiti and
general style in the streets (not to
mention record sales). Then, in
1986, Adidas signed groundbreak-
ing hip-hop group Run-DMC to a
$1 million endorsement deal, and
as a result enjoyed the explosive
success of its Superstar shoe,
the iconic style worn by all three
members of the group. This deal
completely changed the game. Hip-
hop was becoming mainstream
and, sure enough, one by one other
corporations began to follow, lured
by the buying power of a devoted
target audience and reassured by
the enormous success of the Adidas
campaign. Since then, hip-hop has
garnered the attention of corpora-
tions seeking to profit from hip-
hops influence on popular culture
and the psyche of the young con-
sumer today.
This emergence of hip-hop as a
social force inevitably inspired the
formation of a new breed of com-
pany and new methods of reaching
the street-wise rap fans. Several
brands founded in the past decade
have experienced tremendous suc-
cess targeting the hip-hop consum-
er because they are founded and
developed by popular hip-hop fig-
ures themselves. Designer clothing
lines such as Sean Diddy Combs
Sean John and Jay-Zs Rocawear
labels speak directly to their hip-
hop audience. These brands con-
tinue to be successful because they
stress what hip-hop heads look for
in every product: credibility and
Hip-hop is big business today.
All companies want consumers to
do is buy, buy and buy some more,
which is what makes their relation-
ships with hip-hop a match made
in heaven, because it seems all the
hip-hop consumer wants to do
is spend, spend and spend some
more, whether it be on sneakers,
CDs or even Cristal in the club.
Corporations love the money and
hip-hop loves the exposure (as well
as the money), and this adds up to
a lucrative trend for both parties.
Although they may have got-
ten off to a rocky start, corporate
advertising and the hip-hop world
have joined forces during the past
decade and will remain that way
because they share one primary
interest: making dough. We can
only hope that the fortune and
exposure advertising brings wont
blind hip-hop artists and cause
them to lose their creative way.

Teachers turn to advertising
to fnd classroom funding
n n n
By Justin Huggins
U. of Arizona
Arizona Daily Wildcat
heres no money in teach-
ing. Weve all come to
accept that discouraging
truth. Teachers have long pur-
chased their own school supplies
as schools budgets evaporate. But
now teachers are having to think
outside the box in order to cover
their most essential classroom
Last week the Associated Press
reported that an Idaho teacher
struck a sponsorship deal with
a local pizza shop in an effort
to save money. The pizza parlor
agreed to supply paper for the
teachers five classes as long as its
ad appeared on each page. Ten
thousand sheets of paper, enough
for the rest of this year and all of
next, cost the pizzeria $315.
Jeb Harrison now hands out
exams with the ad printed along
the bottom of every page. The
school district in which Harrison
teaches is facing a budget short-
fall of nearly $10 million next
year, and the district is freezing
spending on school supplies,
teacher training and field trips.
One can hardly fault Harrison for
donning salesmans hat, but is this
what weve come to as a society?
Are we willing to shortchange
our childrens education for a few
I concede that many of us are
corporate spokeswhores, splat-
tered with labels from head to
toes. Were all just walking bill-
boards, and thats fine. But I draw
the line at educators having to sell
their classrooms to make ends
Susan Linn, a Harvard psy-
chologist and director of the
Campaign for a Commercial-Free
Childhood, said, When teach-
ers start becoming pitchmen for
products, children suffer and
their education suffers as well. I
dont know about you, but a big
red ad for pizza at the bottom of
the page would surely distract me
while I was trying to concentrate
on an exam.
Beyond these concerns lies a
fundamental objection to selling
ad space in the classroom. We
should value education enough
to fund it, period. If we can bail
out automakers, Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac, AIG and count-
less banks, we should be able to
fund our schools. If we can fund
trillion-dollar wars, why cant we
fund Jeb Harrisons classroom
without the help of ad revenue?
Our priorities are askew. We
value F-22s more than books and
paper. We place education on the
chopping block first. To us, edu-
cation is optional and disposable.
But as long as we consider edu-
cation expendable, were hinder-
ing our collective future. We must
realize that our future isnt a bank
with slipshod lending habits or a
car manufacturer that makes inef-
ficient vehicles or a company that
rewards incompetent executives.
Our future is sitting in a class-
room somewhere. Our future is
learning from a teacher, not an ad
salesman. The only thing teachers
should promote is education. Lets
just hope the government isnt
counting on the nations pizzerias
to bail out our struggling schools.
Otherwise, were doomed.

The department of mathematics
at the University of Kansas is tak-
ing an active role in global warm-
ing and climate change by educat-
ing students through workshops,
speakers and a math competition.
April is Mathematics Awareness
Month and this years theme is
mathematics and climate. On
Saturday more than 300 students
from area elementary, junior high
and high schools will compete in
a math competition sponsored
by the mathematics department.
Mathematics graduate students
will be teaching elementary stu-
dents how math pertains to the
climate through interactive pre-
Bozenna Pasik-Duncan, chair-
woman of Math Awareness Month
and mathematics professor, said
math is used as a basis for solving
the issues of climate change and in
particular, global warming.
Calculus, differential equa-
tions, probability and statistics are
just some of the areas of mathe-
matics that are used for the under-
standing of the oceans, polar ice
caps and the complex interactions
among all those systems, Pasik-
Duncan said.
She said mathematicians try
to model those uncertainties and
make predictions based on that
In climate change you can bet-
ter predict catastrophes such as
earthquakes, flooding, tornadoes
and storms, Pasik-Duncan said.
For students who are interested
in math, science and technology,
this is an opportunity to thrive,
she said.
This kind of situation, math-
ematics and climate is supposed
to make students aware that there
is so much that they can contrib-
ute to as far as problem solving,
Pasik-Duncan said.
Tim Dorn, mathematics gradu-
ate student, along with other
graduate students, is organizing a
workshop for sixth graders from
Hillcrest Elementary, 1045 Hilltop
Dr., on April 15, to show how math
is used in their everyday lives.
Math is a language used to
translate real world problems into
something all students can under-
stand, Dorn said.
He explained how animals are
affected by climate change, specifi-
cally polar bears.
Climate change causes ani-
mals to move to different habitats
because their habitats are slowly
deteriorating, Dorn said. How
long until there are no more polar

tive associate in the department of
mathematics, said all of the visiting
students were given five questions
and had 40 minutes to answer
them. Pasik-Duncha said students
focus should not necessarily be
on getting the right answer, but
on logical thinking to reach the
answer. She said their interests was
in how students derive solutions.
We will focus on analytical
and theoretical thinking
and communication,
Pasik-Duncan said. We want to
know what kind of students we
will have when they are out of high
school. We want to know how they
Brecheisen said Lynne

do a presentation showing stu-
dents how two opposite points
on the globe will have the same

actually grasp and that have a wow
factor to it, Brecheisen said.

It's do or die for Kansas in the WNIT title game. gAmE DAY 6B
Team ready to go after weather delayed season's start. TRAcK & fIELD 4B
FRIDAY, ApRIl 3, 2009 pAGE 1B
ny sport is really just a
numbers game, basketball
maybe more than others.
Stats can tell a tale of the game
that you might not see in action
on the court. Shooting percentage,
turnovers and rebounds can all
lead to a team performing well or
crumbling. The womens basket-
ball team has used a much simpler
stat to create its success in the
postseason. Its using the power
of three.
Im not talking about the three-
point shot here, Im just talking
about a third scoring option. Since
the WNIT started, the Jayhawks
have not had a problem with that.
Yes, Danielle McCray is an
honorable mention All-America,
and she continues to carry this
team, but other players have really
picked up their level of play in the
tournament. Sade Morris closed
the season strong after an injury
sidelined her for a few games
throughout the year. The most
refreshing performance, though,
has come from freshman Aishah
Sutherland, who is averaging 11.8
points per game in the WNIT.
Sutherland has really progressed
toward the end of the season
and thats a big reason why the
Jayhawks are playing well. Coach
Bonnie Henrickson has talked
about the ceiling of Sutherlands
potential and how high it is, and
now Sutherland is really starting
to play up to that potential.
In reality they did what the
mens team couldnt do. They
found a third scoring option and
got outstanding play from a fresh-
man down the stretch. Tyshawn
Taylor and Marcus Morris seemed
to trail off in the NCAA tourna-
ment, while Sutherland has come
on strong.
Add in the fact that sophomore
Krysten Boogaard is playing at a
high level now and this team looks
extremely dangerous. No wonder
they made it to the WNIT cham-
Would they have done this
well in the NCAA tournament?
Probably not, but they are still get-
ting to play, and I dont think any
team could relish that fact more
than the womens team does. This
is a fairly young team thats only
losing one starting player next
year, point guard Ivana Catic. So,
in all reality this tournament is
building momentum for next year.
Yes, it was probably sour grapes
for this team making it into the
WNIT instead of the NCAA tour-
nament, but maybe thats just what
they needed in order to develop.
The womens team most likely
would have lost in the first round
of the NCAA tournament, but
here they are, still going strong in
the WNIT. Thats not a bad thing.
Their in-state rivals at Kansas
State rode back-to-back WNIT
berths in 2006 and 2007 includ-
ing winning the 2006 tournament.
The Jayhawks have a chance to do
that this year, their second con-
secutive year in the WNIT. Even if
they dont win the championship
on Saturday, dont be surprised
to see this team in the Big Dance
next season.
Edited by SamSpeer
This comes as no surprise.
The New York Daily News
reported Thursday that Lance
Stephenson a 6-foot-6 guard
from New
York City
and ranked
as Rivals.
coms No. 9
prospect in
the nation
may have
d e l a y e d
a n no u nc -
ing his col-
lege deci-
sion because
Kansas was
to recruit
X a v i e r
Henry over
him. The
Daily News cited an anony-
mous source.
Henry a 6-foot-6 guard
from Oklahoma City who is
ranked as Rivals.coms No. 3
prospect in the nation has
asked out of his letter of intent
with Memphis after coach
John Calipari left for Kentucky.
Henry originally signed with
Memphis over Kansas. The
Tigers and the Jayhawks were
his only two finalists.
So wishful-thinking Kansas
fans might believe Caliparis
departure makes the Jayhawks
the favorites to land Henry.
But at the McDonalds All-
American Game press confer-
ence earlier this week in Miami,
Henry said that wasnt neces-
sarily the case.
Id re-open everything,
Henry said. Ill take a whole
new evaluation of everything
and everybody and try to make
another good decision about
where Im going to go.
Stephenson, meanwhile, was
scheduled to choose between
Kansas, Maryland and St. Johns
Tuesday at the McDonalds All
American Game. Instead, he
delayed his decision for the sec-
ond time in two weeks.
Stephenson was wide-
ly expected to announce his
The numbers dont lie. 17-10
overall record, 1-7 on the road, and
2-3 on neutral sites.
If you do the math, that makes
for an undefeated record at home,
14-0. Its Kansas best home start
since 2001 and obviously the rea-
son the team (17-10, 3-3) enters
this weekends series against Baylor
(17-7, 5-4) tied for fourth in the
Big 12 Conference.
Coach Ritch Price said the
team was Looking forward to the
opportunity to come home and to
continue to the momentum that we
have, and planned to try to win
another home series in the Big 12.
Home-field advantage is defi-
nitely evident throughout the Big
12 and all of college baseball. A
staggering 81 percent of games
throughout the nation are won by
the home team.
Big 12 schools such as Texas,
Texas A&M, Nebraska and Baylor
all have their own unique and
intimidating ballparks. Price said
there were some other factors
affecting that percentage.
The way the games played,
the way the umpiring is called,
thats why you see so many one-
run games on the road by oppos-
ing teams, Price said. Playing at
home has to be a huge advantage if
you want to be a good team.
In its first series in the Big 12,
Kansas swept then-No. 1 Texas at
home. It was a crowning achieve-
ment for the program. But then the
team lost a series at Texas A&M.
Now Kansas has to rebound against
Baylor, another top-10 team. Senior
At 5:30 p.m., a full hour and a half
before Wednesday nights tipoff,
junior forward Danielle McCray
approached Allen Fieldhouse and
noticed an unusual sight: lines of
eager fans waiting at the doors.
For the first time all season, the
areas designated for students were
filled with hundreds of college
students, standing and screaming
against Illinois State.
And on the court, the Jayhawks
delivered another solid perfor-
mance, rewarding the 8,360 in
attendance with an entertaining
product and, more importantly, a
75-72 victory that launched Kansas
into the WNIT championship
against South Florida at 1 p.m.
Saturday in Allen Fieldhouse.
Welcome to the new womens
basketball program one that has
risen from the dreaded label of
afterthought to increased promi-
nence among Kansas fans.
Thats what weve all been wait-
ing for, McCray said. We tried to
get that from the start at Late Night
but they have to see you play for
them to come. And youre going

The Kansas womens golf team
will finally have the opportunity
to face off against some Big 12
opponents this weekend at the
Susie Maxwell Berning Classic in
Norman, Okla. Junior Meghan
Gockel said she was looking for-
ward to facing off with some
familiar opponents and thought
the team would finish well at this
I think we can finish in the top
three at this tournament, Gockel
said. That would be a pretty
respectable finish for us.
After a brief and rough tourna-
ment in Georgia last weekend, the
team is prepared for a good tour-
nament, said Gockel. Four weeks
ago, the team took the title at the
Duramed Collegiate Classic with
Gockel taking the individual title
as well. Gockel said the team tries
not to be result-oriented but felt
confident about their level of play
for Oklahoma.
We try to take it shot by shot
and just add it up at the end,
Gockel said.
The Jayhawks will play against
Baylor, Kansas State and Oklahoma
at the tournament. Baylor took the
first-place title at the Cincinnati
Invitational last weekend. Kansas
State took 14th and Oklahoma
took 17th in the Mountain View
Classic last weekend. Junior Emily
Powers said that Kansas has played
against these three teams before.
This should be familiar for all
of us, Powers said. All of us have
played against these girls and on
this course before.
With the Big 12 tournament
only three weeks away the team
will try to get in as many rounds as
possible said Coach Erin ONeil.
ONeil said this will be a good
matchup for the team and said
she thought they would do well
against these Big 12 teams. The
tournament will be held at the
Jimmie Austin OU Golf Course,
which is a par 72 course.
This is a very playable course
and the girls can score well on it,
ONeil said.
This will be a two-day tourna-
ment with 36 holes on Sunday
and 18 holes on Monday. Play will
begin at 7 a.m. on Sunday and 8
a.m. on Monday. Gockel said this
was a normal format for the play-
ers even though it was scheduled
for a Sunday and Monday, and
that they should be able to handle
the all-day play on Sunday.
Were out there before the
sun comes up and we play until
after dark, Gockel said. Weve
all developed the endurance to do
this so we should do well.
Kansas will send five golfers to
the tournament: juniors Powers
and Gockel, and sophomores
Meghna Bal, Grace Thiry and
Sydney Wilson.

15 predictions for the coming season
t most schools basketball
season is over. It ends
the minute the team gets
knocked out of its postseason
tournament and no one cares
Not in Lawrence. Plenty of
talk still surrounds the Jayhawks.
Everyone is interested in the
future. Thats part of what makes
Kansas so special. To join in on
the fun, here are 15 Kansas bas-
ketball related predictions:
1. Sherron Collins stays. He
never really gets that close to
declaring for the NBA Draft.
Collins draft stock hes the No.
49 prospect according to ESPN.
coms Chad Ford isnt high
enough to think about it.
2. Cole Aldrich stays. His flirta-
tion with the NBA Draft gets a
little more serious than Collins.
But Aldrich enjoys the college
experience and has enough to
improve on that he will be back.
3. Remember the Sports
Illustrated cover before the
2006-2007 season with Julian
Wright and Mario Chalmers?
Yeah, expect a similar one next
November with Collins and
Aldrich. The Jayhawks will be the
preseason No. 1 team in America.
4. In 2015, Sherron Collins
jersey is retired. Collins only has
to wait Bill Self s minimum five
years before the ceremony and he
will be the first player on the 2008
national championship team to
receive the honor.
5. While were on the subject of
looking too far ahead, heres the
earliest possible 2010 Final Four
prediction: Kansas, Duke, Texas
and Villanova in Indianapolis.
6. Xavier Henry winds up at
Kansas. Hes been Kansas top tar-
get all along and Self wont miss
a second chance at the 6-foot-5
guard from Oklahoma City.
7. Lance Stephenson winds up
somewhere else. Maybe not even
Maryland or St. Johns. The kid
is unpredictable. John Calipari
could stage a late courting at
Kentucky if he misses out on
8. John Wall winds up at
Baylor. Dont forget, the Bears
hired Dwon Clifton, Walls AAU
coach, as an assistant coach.
Clifton can use the Calipari
situation as a diversion to once
again sell Wall on Waco, Texas.
9. Pundits start mentioning
Bill Self s name with the vacant
Oklahoma City Thunder coach-
ing job at the end of the NBA
season. A chance to go home for
Self. Tons of young talent on the
roster. And, no chance. Self is not
going anywhere.
10. Behind the direction of
coach Mike Anderson, Missouri
returns the Border Showdown
basketball rivalry to relevance for
the next 10 years.
11. Behind the direction of
coach Frank Martin, Kansas State
keeps the Sunflower Showdown
basketball rivalry irrelevant for
the next 10 years.
12. Jayhawk assistant coach Joe
Dooley is hired as a head coach
somewhere within the next three
years. He was already listed on
Virginia Commonwealths short
list this season before it hired
Florida assistant coach Shaka
Smart Thursday.
13. Either sophomore Travis
Releford or freshman Elijah
Johnson takes a redshirt next
season. One of those two will
likely be the seventh guard
option the same position Brady
Morningstar was in during the
2007-2008 season when he sat
14. Former Jayhawk Mario
Chalmers plays his best basketball
in the NBA playoffs in a couple of
weeks. Along with Dwyane Wade,
Chalmers leads the Miami Heat to
a first round upset against whom-
ever they play.
15. Until Late Night in the
Phog in six months you will have
at least one conversation about
each of the previous 14 topics. Its
Kansas. Thats what happens.

Bunge one victory from 400 for career
Kansas softball coach Tracy
Bunge needs one more win to
reach a career milestone of 400
victories. The Jayhawks will
travel down to Lubbock, Texas
to play a pair of games against
Texas Tech this weekend with
that milestone in sight. Since
her first game on February
15th, 1997, an 8-0 victory over
Illinois-Chicago, Bunge has
become the all-time winningest
coach in Kansas softball history.
During her tenure, the Jayhawks
have reached the NCAA region-
als four times and have won the
Big 12 postseason championship
once, in 2006.
Its not about me, its about
the girls, said coach Bunge. We
need to continue to step forward
and win ball games. To be hon-
est, I didnt even know about the
No game is guaranteed in any
sport, but the Jayhawks have a
prime opportunity to get their
coach a couple of victories over
the weekend. The Red Raiders
currently reside in the basement
of the Big 12, with a conference
record of 1-6 and an overall
record of 11-28 and the Jayhawks
come into this weekends series
riding an eleven-game winning
streak against the team.
The Texas Tech offense is
led by senior Liz Eiman who
has 44 hits and a .379 average
this season. On the other side
of the ball, though, the Red
Raiders have been less than stel-
lar. Defensively, Texas Tech has
accumulated 49 errors, second
most in the Big 12. The Red
Raider pitchers have a staff ERA
of 4.79 and have given up 315
hits on the way to 178 earned
At 11-20 overall, 1-3 in confer-
ence and 4-4 against the ESPN/
USA Softball Top 25, Kansas
hopes to ride the momentum
from their walk-off victory over
No. 11 Missouri into the games
against Texas Tech.
The win against Missouri was
a big boost for our team confi-
dence, Bunge said. I sound like
a broken record, but we need
to continue getting timely hit-
ting, quality defense and solid
Val Chapple leads the Jayhawk
offense, posting a .354 average
and .400 on base percentage,
as well as recently being recog-
nized by the Big 12 as an exem-
plary student athlete. Kansas
ace Valerie George leads the
pitching staff with 111 innings
pitches and 121 strikeouts, after
racking up 18 in her last two

Bears trade for Cutler;

Denver Broncos have agreed
to trade disgruntled quarter-
back Jay Cutler to the Chicago
The Broncos announced the
deal Thursday and said terms
would be disclosed later. It
wasnt immediately known
if Denver got any players in
return or just draft picks.
The Broncos were trading
Cutler on his terms and there
was no shortage of teams
lining up to take a crack at
acquiring the 25-year-old Pro
Bowl passer.
Cutler had asked for a trade
last month after his relation-
ship with new coach Josh
McDaniels soured. McDaniels
had talked to other teams
about trading his rocket-
armed passer.
Chicago also signed former
St. Louis Rams tackle Orlando
Pace to a three-year deal. Pace,
a seven-time Pro Bowl selec-
tion, was released by the Rams
in March.

Arizona is a special place for
junior pole vaulter Ryan Hays.
While on spring break before his
first high school track season,
Hays took his first-ever jumps at
the track facility of the University
of Arizona with his father, verti-
cal jumps coach Tom Hays, who
coached there at the time.
Now Hays will get the chance
to return to Arizona this Saturday
with the Kansas track and field
team when they compete in the
Arizona Invitational in Tucson,
I cant wait to get out there and
see the track, Hays said. I know
what Im walking into, Ive seen the
track before, the oohs and aahs
are out and I just want to get back
out there and jump and see how
high I can jump at that facility.
The Arizona Invitational will be
the first official meet of Kansas
outdoor season. Last weeks
Missouri Relays were cancelled
because of bad weather and the
team is looking forward to com-
peting in good weather. Saturdays
forecast in Tucson is sunny and
Sophomore distance
runner Amanda Miller
will be competing in
the 3,000-meter run.
Miller said it would
have been nice to
have competed more
this season before
I feel like Im in
good shape, but it can
be different when I get on the
track, Miller said.
With last weekends meet can-
celled, the team held Saturday
practice to go along with its regu-
lar preparation for this weekends
meet. Coach Stanley Redwine said
that the team was excited about
where they were travelling this
The team is looking forward to
going to a different place and see-
ing new things. Theyre ready for
competition, Redwine said.
Kansas will
be one of two
schools repre-
senting the Big
12 when it faces
Pac-10 schools
University of
Wa s h i n g t o n
and University
of Arizona as
well as Big Ten
schools Penn
State and University of Wisconsin.
All these schools are really good;
its going to be some good competi-
tion, Redwine said.
Senior ShaRay Butler said she is
looking forward to the competition,
especially in the 400-meter hurdles.
Im not sure if theyre in the
Pac-10 but I know theres some
competitors for the 400-hurdles at
this meet, Butler said.
Last year, Butler earned all-
region honors in the 400-meter
hurdles, running with a time
of 58.98 seconds at the NCAA
Midwest Regionals.
This meet will bring the return
of senior sprinter Nickesha
Anderson, who is in her last season
of eligibility at Kansas. Anderson
will compete in the 100-meter and
200-meter dashes along with the
4x100-meter relay and the 4x400-
meter relay.
Anderson said that running in
the 400-meter event would be ben-
eficial for her in her other events.
Im starting to do the 400 so I
can be a little bit stronger for the
100 and 200, Anderson said.
Anderson said she had been in
training mode and was ready to get
back into competition.
Starting the season against tough
opponents will be both a challenge
and an opportunity.
Its very important it being our
first outdoor meet, Redwine said.
Hopefully theyll go out and com-
pete well, but the reality is that in
order to be the best, you have to
compete against the best and this is
a meet we will be able to do that.

The Kansas Jayhawks will
attempt to conquer the fourth-best
tennis team in the nation today in
Waco, Texas. The team features
four ITA-ranked athletes who,
when paired up, form two doubles
tandems which include the No.
16 pairing of Lenka Broosova and
Csilla Borsanyi. Baylor is 47-1 in
Big 12 competition since 2005. Oh
yeah, and it is the 2008 conference
The Jayhawks are coming off
a weekend in which they defeat-
ed Oklahoma and a then-ranked
Oklahoma State. It was the first
time this season the team defeated
a ranked school and it showed the
importance of winning the early
doubles point.
Our number one issue is getting
out there and competing in doubles.
That momentum going into singles
from having already won the point
in doubles is huge, and the girls
realize that after last
weekend, coach Amy
Hall-Holt said.
Todays match
against Baylor and
Sundays match against
No. 63 Texas Tech in
Lubbock, Texas will
feature an invigorated
KU squad that sits in
fifth place in the Big
12 with a conference
record of 3-3.
To beat Baylor we just have to
outsmart them, and come out with
our A-games and our A-minds.
The girls seem to be still pretty
pumped up from
the weekend,
Hall-Holt said.
We have to take
those two vic-
tories and keep
moving for-
M a r i a
M a r t i n e z ,
Abingdon, Md.,
sophomore, has
reason to be pumped up about the
past three weekends. After winning
her first three singles matches of the
season, Martinez struggled, win-
ning only two out of her next seven
matches. But since conference com-
petition began, she has assembled a
team-best 5-1 singles record.
My concentration level has
gone up. You always want to do the
best you can, and Coach has really
helped me in tweaking my game a
little to play better, Martinez said.
There is a connection between
Martinezs success and the suc-
cess of the team. When Martinez
wins her singles match, the team
is 8-2 in dual play, and when she
loses, the team is 0-6. Martinez was
Kansas top fall singles player, and
she plays at the No. 5 position as
opposed to the more difficult No.
1 position so theoretically she
should win a great majority of her
singles matches.
She is a competitor and a very
coachable player that listens, Hall-
Holt said.
Hall-Holt said that it is critical
that everyone plays to win this
weekend and that the team has its
eyes set on Texas Tech as well as
It would be awesome to come
out with a 2-0 victory this week-
end. We are very excited about
going to Texas and want to keep
our momentum and fire alive. And
play hard, Hall-Holt said.

Before Kansas semifinal game
against Illinois State on Wednesday,
players sat in the locker room,
somewhat shocked after a round of
pregame warm-ups.
Allen Fieldhouse, normally pep-
pered with event staff and early-
arriving media members, had fans
and a healthy number of them
before the 60-minute countdown to
tipoff even began.
Its the atmosphere that weve
all been working towards, associ-
ate athletic director Jim Marchiony
said. Coaches, players, the admin-
istrators this is what weve been
working for. Its very satisfying to
see the teams hard work pay off.
The Jayhawks talked all season
about increasing their fan support,
and many administration-launched
promotions drew fans into Allen
Fieldhouse with some success.
But, really, theres only one key to
generating excitement and boost-
ing attendance figures.
You can throw out a lot of fly-
ers and tell everyone you want to
come, but it wont change their
decisions unless youre winning,
McCray said. People have come
up to me and said I dont even like
womens basketball that much but
Im still coming.
Senior guard Ivana Catic added:
When you try to talk with people
and say, Hey, come to our games.
Then, they say Whats your record?
and youre like, Well, we havent
been doing so well, but were doing
better, you dont really get a good
Kansas recent success down the
stretch of the season, coupled with
a lack of other basketball viewing
options at this point in the year, has
made the womens basketball team
a topic of conversation.
That wasnt the case in years past
or, for that matter, even earlier this
Sometimes, McCray said, peo-
ple didnt even know who you are.
Now, Kansas players walk into
classes and are greeted with warm
congratulations and promises to
attend the upcoming game.
Sure, the program still has a long
way to go, a lot of climbing yet
to do. But the signs of progress
are undeniable. Marchiony said the
athletics department has launched
a massive campaign to draw fans
to Saturdays game, including using
Facebook, Twitter and talking with
area organizations.
The result? Marchiony realisti-
cally plans for Kansas to set a new
attendance record for womens bas-
ketball games, surpassing the cur-
rent mark of 13,352 set in 1994.
I dont even know what that
looks like in our games, Catic said.
I know how it looks in guys games,
but I dont know what that looks
like being out on the court.

catcher Buck Afenir said the con-
stant play against ranked pro-
grams has its pros and cons.
Who wouldnt want to play a
ranked team every weekend on
the side of competition? Afenir
said. But it's tough to come out
every day to see a top-10 rounder
on the mound every time.
Afenir was referring to the
quality of starting pitching the
Jayhawks have had to face all
season long. The Bears are no
slouches, and plan to roll out
junior Kendal Volz for the first
game of the series on Friday.
Volz pitched for Team USA over
the summer. He was the closer for
the squad that also had Price on
as an assistant coach. Price has
seen enough of the right hander to
know his team will have to battle
on Friday.
He was one of my favorite play-
ers on the team and hes one of the
best pitchers in America, so well
have our hands full Friday night,
Price said. Hes a first rounder
and we have to get after him.
But the main advantage to
facing all these top teams every
weekend is that Price knows his
team is prepared to face top tal-
I think the great thing about
it is, when you go that many con-
secutive weeks youre prepared to
play against that kind of competi-
tion, Price said.
But being at home could be
the advantage needed to combat
Baylors starting pitching. While
Kansas hasnt been as produc-
tive with its lineup on the road,
at home it was able to fight off
Texas starters until the bullpen
came in. Again, junior shortstop
David Narodowski believes play-
ing at Hoglund Ballpark gives the
Jayhawks an edge.
We play well at home, hope-
fully we get some fans out to feed
off of, Narodowski said. Just
keep hitting the ball like we did
this week, we should be fine.

intentions to attend Kansas that
day. Now, it appears he may be
waiting for Henrys decision.
Stephenson compared his game
with Henrys in the Daily News
Hes a good player, but I
think Im better in crunch
time, Stephenson told the
Daily News. I like to win.
Kansas most likely could
not sign both Henry and
Stephenson. Aside from the fact
that they both play the same
position on the wing, Kansas
next commitment would use its
15th scholarship.
The NCAA only allows 13
scholarship players on a team.
To accommodate for both
Henry and Stephenson, either
two players would have to leave
or two players scholarships
would have to be taken away.

Penn State wins men's NIT
Associated Press
NEW YORK Penn State
coach Ed DeChellis met with his
team a couple of hours before
playing Baylor in the NIT title
game and had only one request.
Give me everything you have,
he said. If its good enough, its
good enough; if its not, its not.
Just leave it all on the floor.
The Nittany Lions certainly
did. And it was plenty.
Jamelle Cornley scored 18
points and the scrappy Nittany
Lions, chasing every loose ball
and hustling for every rebound,
outlasted the Bears 69-63 on
Thursday night to win only the
second postseason tournament
title in school history.
Talor Battle added 12 points, all
in the second half, for the Nittany
Lions (27-11).
You dont know what its going
to be like when you go into it,
said Cornley, the tournaments
most valuable player. The last
time I cut down the nets was the
state championship my freshman
year of high school. To cut down
some more nets in my last game is
just an unbelievable feeling.
The only other postseason
tournament Penn State had won
was the Atlantic 10 in 1991.
It was a physical game, and
both teams spent most of the
night scrambling for every ball
in sight. Penn State guard Danny
Morrissey was trying to corral a
loose one near the scorers table
with about 2 minutes to go and
the Nittany Lions leading 57-48
when he slammed his head into
the floor, laying motionless on the
sideline for a few moments.
Trainers hurried over and
tended to the senior, who had a
cut above his lip but eventually
walked off the floor on his own.
We have tough kids. Were
going to go compete. Thats been
our trademark all year, DeChellis
said. That play typifies what our
team has been like all year.
The Bears trailed 62-50 after
Stanley Pringle made a pair of
free throws with under 2 minutes
left, but they did their best to rally.
Tweety Carters 3-pointer made
it 62-55 with just over a minute
to go, and he made another with
16.8 seconds left to get within
Baylor simply ran out of time.
Battle hit one of two foul shots,
and Curtis Jerrells air-balled a
3-point attempt to set off a jubilant
celebration in one end of Madison
Square Garden, where some 36
busloads of white-clad fans made
it look like the end zone of Beaver
Stadium on a fall Saturday.
Cornley led the way with 18 as Nittany Lions top Baylor Bears

South Florida
Shantia Grace, 5-foot-6 senior guard
Grace is the unquestioned leader of the
Bulls. Shes their leading scorer at 14.8 ppg
and plays with a determined attitude. This
will be the last game of her career, so shell
be as focused as ever.

Jasmine Wynne, 5-foot-7 freshman guard

The of-guard from Jacksonville plays the
game at one pace: fast. She loves to push
the ball up the foor and score in transition.
If the game lags at any point, expect Wynne
to be the one forcing the issue and driving
the ball into the paint.

Jazmine Sepulveda, 5-foot-9 senior guard

Sepulveda is a wing player with point
guard skills. Shes second on the team to
Grace in assists on the season. Sepulveda
leaves it on the foor every game and is also
quite the pickpocket. Shes recorded 94
steals on the year.

Brittany Denson, 6-foot-3 senior center

Denson is a defensive force in the paint
for the Bulls: she has 96 blocks on the
season. She transferred from Miami (Fla.) as
a sophomore and has been a welcome addi-
tion to South Floridas inside game.

Jessica Lawson, 6-foot-3 senior

Two centers? South Florida loves
to rotate their posts inside, giving
new looks on each possession.
Lawson also transferred to South
Florida, but she started her
career at California. Lawson is
the scorer of the two centers,
averaging 10.5 ppg.

Sixth WoMan
Janae Stokes, 5-foot-7
junior guard
Stokes is actually one
of the leading scorers
for the Bulls. She came
of the bench to net 22
points on the road at
Boston College in South
Floridas last game.
Stokes is the Bulls out-
side shooter, and she can get hot at any
given moment.

South Florida played in the
Big East, one of the tougher
conferences in the country this
year. They faced undefeated
Connecticut twice and fell to the
same fate as every other team
who has played them this season.
In their last game, they defeated
Boston College on the road 82-65.
South Floridas niche is playing an
uptempo, high-turnover game.
With four seniors in their starting
lineup, the Bulls will be ready to
Senior guard Shantia Grace
Tia loves to push the tempo
and play the game at South
Floridas pace. While she tends
to turn it over a lot, she balances
her numbers
with twice as
many assists.
A lot of her
turnovers come
from trying to
make a tough
play. Senior
Ivana Catic will
likely draw this
matchup and will need to contain
her dribble drive for the Jayhawks
to have success. Grace will look to
shoot early and often.
Will the Bulls be able to keep
the game at their pace?
When teams are able to slow
down South Florida, they tend to
have success. In their last game,
freshman Jasmine Wynne forced
two Eagle turnovers in the frst
two minutes that turned into fve
South Florida points. Whichever
team is able to play the game at
the speed they want to will have a
defnite advantage. Kansas wants
to slow it down and run its sets.
South Florida wants to jump and
trap and get quick shots.
We were a little excited with
the atmosphere and all that. We
were getting good shots, but they
just werent falling.
Senior Jessica Lawson on the Boston College
crowd. They drew 702 fans.
I feel we can do anything when
we put our mind to it. Once we
have a common goal, nobody can
break us.

frst postseason championship
Before the WNIT ever started,
coach Bonnie Henrickson and her
players openly discussed that they
had every intention of winning
the tournament. Now, the Jay-
hawks have put themselves in the
position to do so. Kansas has won
four consecutive games and nine
of its last 11. And its by no means
a stretch to say that the Jayhawks
are playing their best basketball of
the season right now.
Freshman forward Aishah
Sutherland may seem like an
odd selection considering that

than 30 points
per game in

Will Kansas supporting cast
show up?
Its no secret that McCray is
going to score. And in the WNITs
four games, McCray hasnt scored
fewer than 25 points. But in order
to be successful, Kansas needs
scoring production from other
players. So far, thats happened
in the WNIT. That trend must con-
tinue for Kansas to be crowned
She does it so often that we
come to expect her to do that.
Its really not surprising anymore.

Ivana Catic, 5-foot-8 senior guard
Catic is by no means a scoring threat. But
her role is just as important: Shes the direc-
tor of Kansas complicated ofense. Catic is
responsible for placing the ball in the hands
of top scorers, and shes done a good job of
that in the WNIT.

Sade Morris, 5-foot-11 junior guard

Morris scored just nine points against
Illinois State on Wednesday. But, down the
stretch of the season, shes been a perfect
secondary scoring option for Kansas. Her
ability to drive to the basket creates open-
ings for Kansas other players.

Danielle McCray, 5-foot-11 junior forward

Earlier in the week, the Associated Press
named McCray an honorable mention All-
America. But in the WNIT, McCrays playing
with all the poise and ability of a frst-team
selection. Shes averaging 31 points and nine
rebounds per game.

Nicollette Smith, 6-foot-2 sophomore

Smith hasnt scored more than nine points
since late February, while making just one
three-pointer in her last eight games. But
Smiths greatest contributions come on the
defensive end, where she is Kansas most reli-
able post defender.

Krysten Boogaard, 6-foot-5 sopho-

more center
Boogaard struggled late in the
season for Kansas and scored just fve
points in Kansas frst two WNIT games.
Yet, Boogaard has provided the
Jayhawks with a much needed
post presence recently, aver-
aging 14.5 points in Kansas
last two games.

Sixth WoMan
Aishah Sutherland,
6-foot-2, freshman
Sutherland has
displayed all the
necessary quali-
ties to become a
dominant player.
But the problem for
Sutherland has always been consis-
tency. Not anymore. Shes been Kansas

Kansas breaks the all-time attendance record for a womens
basketball game. The largest crowd in Kansas history is 13,352, set
more than a decade ago in 1994, and the Jayhawks announced
attendance of 8,360 on Wednesday marked the ffth-largest crowd
ever. With an increased excitement and a massive push from the
athletics department, Kansas should expect a close-to-record-
setting number of fans.
Kansas commits more than 18 turnovers. Early
in the season, turnovers cost Kansas a handful
of victories. And the same situation almost un-
folded against Illinois State on Wednesday. The
Jayhawks turned the ball over 18 times, allowing
the Redbirds to close a 16-point defcit to two
points. That cant happen against South Florida.
