The student voice since 1904

The threats started when Sarah, a woman
from Kansas City, Mo., started dating her
first girlfriend when she was 16 years old.
The threats werent coming from her com-
munity or friends they were coming
from her girlfriend.
The abuse started almost right away. Her
girlfriend threatened Sarah by saying she
would tell Sarahs parents and church com-
munity about their sexual relationship. She
also threatened Sarahs safety. Sarah said it
took a while for her to understand that she
was in an abusive relationship because her
girlfriend never physically hit her.
Its not the classic violence, Sarah said.
I struggled with identifying that our rela-
tionship was not OK.
Jessica Farmer, outreach and educa-
tion coordinator at the Kansas City Anti-
Violence Project, said domestic violence
in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and
questioning, or LGBTQ, relationships is
just as common as domestic violence in
heterosexual relationships. She said that in
one out of four relationships of all sexual
orientations, people will experience acts of
domestic violence.
Sarahs experience is an example of
tactics of abuse other than physical that
are used in LGBTQ relationships. Rachel
Gadd-Nelson, a senior from Kansas City,
Kan., and director of educational outreach
of Queers and Allies, said threats regard-
ing sexuality, such as outing a person who
has not shared his or her sexuality with
friends and family, were common in abu-
sive LGBTQ relationships.
Saying things like Youre not queer
enough is incredibly damaging, Gadd-
Nelson said.
When Sarah moved away to attend col-
lege in Atlanta, she said she promised
herself she would never be in an abusive
relationship again. That changed when she
met a transgendered individual who was
in the process of transitioning from female
to male.
Sarahs new relationship became abusive
almost right from the start. She said he
sped on the highway and forced her to take
off her seat belt just to scare her. He threat-
ened to hit her. He would hold her down
and force her to perform sexual acts. And
yet, Sarah didnt want to leave him.
I thought I loved that person, Sarah
said. I thought if I did all of the right
things, said the right things and tried
hard enough then it would get better. The
thought of getting up and leaving broke
my heart.
Sarah was a feminist, an activist and a
victim of past violence, and taught students
about domestic violence at her university.
Because of this she was ashamed to talk to
friends about her abusive relationship. She
said she thought she should know better.
Gadd-Nelson said it was difficult for the
LGBTQ community to admit that their
relationships could be just as dysfunctional
as heterosexual relationships.
Its easier to talk about gay-bashing
and the kind of violence that is happening
against our community because it is some-
thing that can rally around, Gadd-Nelson
said.

One million new cases of
chlamydia were reported in the
United States last year. In Kansas,
15- to 24-year-olds accounted for
74 percent of reported cases this
year, and more than half of the
cases reported in the nation.
In reality, that one million is
actually only 30 percent of the
people that actually have chla-
mydia, said P. Scott Hefty, assis-
tant professor of molecular bio-
sciences.
Because 70 percent of people
with chlamydia have no outward
symptoms, they dont know they
have it, and those cases go undoc-
umented.
Hefty received a $1.8 million
grant from the National Institute
of Health this year to further
research chlamydia and its causes
and treatments. Despite the prev-
alence of chlamydia worldwide,
Hefty said he can count the num-
ber of scientists researching the
gene regulation of the disease on
two hands.
Chlamydia isnt just a problem
in the U.S., its a problem world-
wide, said Hefty. It is the most
common STD spread by bacterial
infection by far.
Chlamydia is treated with an
antibiotic called doxycycline, but
there is evidence from tests pre-
formed on pigs that the bacte-
ria that causes chlamydia may
be building a resistence to the
antibiotic. Hefty is working to
develop a new antibiotic to treat
chlamydia.
Sarah Kieweg, assistant profes-
sor of mechanical engineering,
is also working with Hefty. She
is developing a gel that will help
prevent women from contracting
chlamydia to begin with.
The microbicide gel would be
inserted into the vagina, prevent-
ing the transmission of chlamyd-
ia.
The target market of the gel
would be in countries where
women dont have access to alter-
native methods like condoms,
such as Africa. Even in the U.S.
though, women dont always have
that option, Kieweg said.
According to the Department
of Health, the number of reported
cases of chlamydia increased sig-
nificantly last year by almost 14
percent. The Center for Disease
Control now strongly advises that
all sexually active women under
25 be screened yearly for chla-
mydia.
As part of a federally-fund-
ed initiative called the Kansas
Infertility Prevention Project,
clinics across the state are now

Prosecutors use al-Qaida to convict terrorists
CRImE
ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK The first
Guantanamo detainee to face a
civilian trial isnt accused of being
a sworn member of al-Qaida at the
time a U.S. embassy was bombed
his native Tanzania, but that hasnt
stopped prosecutors from men-
tioning the terror group over
and over.
In opening statements earlier
this month at Ahmed Ghailanis
trial, Assistant U.S. Attorney
Nicholas Lewin wasted little time
before mentioning al-Qaida as he
set the scene of the deadly attack
in 1998.
A 2 1/2-ton truck bomb has
been sent to murder and to maim,
he told jurors in federal court in
Manhattan. Its been sent by al-
Qaida.
By the time he was done 30
minutes later, hed said al-Qaida
more than 50 times.
By comparison, at the 2001 trial
of four other men convicted in the
plot, then-Assistant U.S. Attorney
Paul Butler mentioned al-Qaida
fewer than half as many times
in a significantly longer opening
statement. Osama bin Laden was
named more than 60 times, com-
pared with eight mentions at the
current trial.
The recent bombardment of al-
Qaida references reflect the broad
latitude prosecutors have been
given to evoke terror groups thirst
for American blood.
At the earlier trial, prosecu-
tors had the task of educating
jurors about an unfamiliar threat.
A decade later with the Sept.
11, 2001, attacks burned into the
publics awareness al-Qaida has
become a terror brand name that
prosecutors can exploit.
That advantage became espe-
cially important after a key govern-
ment witness a man who says he
sold explosives to Ghailani was
barred from testifying because the
CIA learned of the mans identity
at a secret camp where Ghailani
underwent harsh interrogations.
Prosecutors are going to play
the al-Qaida card, said Karen
Greenberg, executive director of
the Center on Law and Security at
the New York University School
of Law.
The approach, Greenberg said,
shows the governments belief that,
We can convict him by associa-
tion alone.
Ghailani, 36, is charged with
conspiracy in a plot to destroy
U.S. embassies in Dar es Salaam,
Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya on
orders from bin Laden. In all, 224
people were killed in the Aug.
7, 1998, attacks, including 12
Americans.
Prosecutors allege Ghailani
helped buy the truck used to bomb
the Tanzania embassy and fit it
with explosives. They say he also
purchased TNT, as well as detona-
tors used in both attacks.
He was arrested in 2004 and
held by the CIA at a secret overseas
camp before being transferred to
Guantanamo in 2006.
Defense attorneys have argued
that their client was a dupe who
knew nothing about the plot.

Landlord clashes with student and city over homes
LocAL
BY STEPHEN
MONTEMAYOR
smontemayor@kansan.com
Serina Hearn is smoking again.
She lights up after an hour of
explaining her conflict with the
city over its zoning laws and allega-
tions made by a former tenant and
current KU student.
Hearn and her husband, Tony
Backus, live in what was once
known as Briar Manor, an expan-
sive Victorian-style home similar
to the 25 houses the two have
restored and now lease.
Their dining room table is blan-
keted by zoning maps, copies of
KU student directory listings from
half a century ago and books with
pages she wants to show you.
The scene better befits a war
room than a place for dining.
Hearn has already said she feels
like shes at war.
This is the tip of the iceberg
about the city undermining pre-
existing uses of property that they
would like us to have amnesia
about, Hearn said.
She then flips to a page in a
history book about Lawrence and
points out a handbill from 1860.
THE cITY
Hearn said she has spent hours
looking through old directories
and making copies of selections
from long ago. She is trying to
provide evidence that her homes
historically have been used by
multiple families at a time.
Many of Hearns properties,
like 1736 Louisiana St., are zoned
single-family, meaning no more
than three unrelated people can
live in the home. However, Hearn
said that property has two dwell-
ings with a kitchen in each and
that six people should be allowed
to live in it.
Brian Jimenez, codes enforce-
ment supervisor for the city, previ-
ously told The Kansan that 1736
Louisiana St. is zoned as a single-
dwelling residence. He said the city
has given Hearn the opportunity to
prove her actions (housing more
than three unrelated residents in
the home) were not unlawful and
that she has yet to do that. When
contacted Monday, Jimenez said he
had nothing to add on the matter.
THE INSpEcTIoN
Brian Markowitz, a senior from
Leawood, did not leave 1736
Louisiana St. in a happy mood.
Thats been clear and at present,
thats about where the clarity ends.
Markowitz said he and his
roommates received an e-mail
from the office of Rainbow Works
LLC, Hearns property manage-
ment company, a few days before
the city was to perform a safety
inspection.
The March 2009 e-mail reads:
Could you please not be at the
house between 1:30 pm and 3:00
pm during the inspection? It goes
on to say the air conditioning units
from the attic bedrooms will be
removed. Thats not all Markowitz
said was done to the house prior to
inspection. In an Oct. 12 University
Daily Kansan article, Markowitz
said steps were taken to conceal
the houses second dwelling.
Both Hearn and Backus refused
to go into detail about those allega-
tions, citing an ongoing dialogue
with the city, but said they did
anticipate Jimenez finding a sec-
ond dwelling.
What the city does is they
say theyre coming to do a safety
inspection, but what theyre real-
ly coming to do is count heads,
Hearn said.
Added Backus, We feel like
they are making up the rules as
they go along and were afraid. We
dont know what their motives are
or where theyre going so were
treading very carefully now.
The dispute between Markowitz
and Hearn began when Markowitzs
security deposit was not refunded.
He said he and his roommates
worked with family for three days
to clean the home. Hearn said it
was found to be filthy upon the
final walkthrough.
Trenda Reschke performed the
walkthrough and said the tenants
and some of their parents were
confrontational as she attempted
to take notes.
She said she had to address their
aggressiveness on more than one
occasion. When they eventually
went to sit on the porch, she over-
heard a furious Markowitz.
Im going to destroy her,
Reschke remembers Markowitz
saying in reference to Hearn. If
I dont get my deposit back, Im
going after her.
The day was so stressful for
Reschke she said she even remem-
bers what she wore.
Markowitz said he wasnt even
there that day.
THE bATTLE
The handbill Hearn pointed to
was handed out when a United
States deputy marshal was going
around Lawrence negro hunting
in houses around the city.
I showed you this because all
you have to do is replace the word
student in there, Hearn said.
The handbill ends with, Know
your rights and stand to them.
He has no right to invade your
castles.
Hearn and Backus say they are
fighting to protect their rights and
the rights of student residents.
The allusions dont end in the
Civil War era.
Youve heard of ethnic cleansing
urban renewal as ethnic cleansing,
Hearn said. Well, students arent
black or Hispanic but theyre stu-
dents.
Hearn said the city and organiza-
tions like the Oread Neighborhood
Association which will elect its
members Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at
Plymouth Congregational Church
are trying to push students out
in hopes that the properties zoned
single family eventually give way to
modern apartment complexes.
What they should be doing is
saying we will support you restor-
ing these houses, Hearn said.
Instead, all they do is beat us up.
Im right now the poster girl for
this.

BY STEPHEN GRAY
sgray@kansan.com
The University and its schools
have responded to last Thursdays
decision by the Kansas Board of
Regents to reduce the minimum
number of credit hours required
for a bachelors degree. Instead
of requiring 124 credit hours for
graduation, the board has approved
a reduction to 120 hours.
While this state requirement
is effective immediately, the
University of Kansas has not yet
adopted the new minimum. The
University will be working with
each individual school to deter-
mine when, if and how to imple-
ment the rule.
Provost Jeffrey Vitter said the
Regents decision was made to keep
Kansas requirements in line with
the majority of other state institu-
tions across the country. Thirty-
nine other states have a 120-hour
minimum and two others have
considered adopting this require-
ment.
Danny Anderson, dean of the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences,
said that many fields in the College
will take on the 120 hour min-
imum after new approaches are
reviewed and approved by faculty
governance committees.
We will be moving quickly to
examine and implement appropri-
ate changes, Anderson said.
For now, though, liberal arts and
sciences students must fulfill the
requirements currently approved
for their degrees. Certain degrees
require more than the minimum
by the nature of the field, and that
will not change.
Vitter said that the new require-
ments in some cases, however, may
apply to current students retroac-
tively if they choose to be governed
by a later catalog.
Max Mickunas, a freshman from
Atwood, hopes that the reduction
will apply to him.
With fewer credits, it will mean
less money spent, especially on
textbooks, Mickunas said.
Anderson said this change will
decrease tuition dollars for stu-
dents, but it also means that the
College will not have to spend
money to provide these additional
courses and programs, which saves
dollars.
Rick Ginsberg, dean of educa-
tion, said that this will force the
School of Education to try to limit
the number of credit hours for
graduation. Ginsberg doesnt have
a sense yet, though, whether any
education-specific hours will be
cut.
It will need to be determined
by the faculty exactly where the
reduced hours would come from,
Ginsberg said.
This credit reduction is one of
the recommendations that were
offered by Chancellor Bernadette
Gray-Littles retention and gradu-
ation task force earlier this year to
remove obstacles to timely gradu-
ation.
During the 2009-2010 academic
year, 134 potential CLAS graduates,
having completed between 120 to
123 hours, were denied degree cer-
tification due to the Colleges mini-
mum requirement of 124. This
demonstrates the potential effect
of reducing the required number of
credit hours, Vitter said.
Ann Brill, dean of journalism,
said that the School of Journalism
will use the Regents standards to
set minimum hours for students
and is working with the adminis-
tration to implement this.
The change will likely improve
our quality of education and is a
good thing for students, Brill said.
Vitter said that the Universitys
process for lowering the mini-
mum requirement should take
approximately three months. If the
changes are made quickly, the new
minimum would apply to incom-
ing students in fall 2011.
The states requirement was set
at 124 in 2003 and had not been
altered until now. The requirement
of 124 at the Universitys College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences, however,
has not been changed since 1933,
when it was increased in order to
incorporate hygiene and physical
education into the curriculum.
These changes meet the
demands of our age, Anderson
said. They will contribute to
strategies that increase the value
and quality of University of Kansas
degrees.
Edited by Michael Bednar
the previous requirement for a bachelors degree in the liberal
arts, sciences or professional felds was 124 credit hours.
the 124-hour minimum is part of the university senate rules
and regulations. university Governance will determine support
for lowering the minimum requirement to 120 hours over approx-
imately three months. If the process is done quickly, and changes
could apply to incoming students in 2011.
Business: the school will consider how this change could afect
its curriculum. It looks forward to university senate discussions
on the regents decision and any recommendations that will
amount from it.
CLAS: many felds will take on the 120-hour minimum after new
approaches are reviewed by faculty committees.
Education: the school plans to limit the overall number of credit
hours. Faculty will determine where the reduced hours will come
from.
Engineering: All undergraduate degree programs require more
credit hours than this minimum requirement. At this point in
time, the school of engineering doesnt anticipate any changes
in curriculum directly related to this rule change.
Journalism: the school will use the regents standards to set the
minimum hours. It is working with the administration to imple-
ment the change.
Nursing: the faculty plans to discuss a change in the minimum
number of credit hours required for the bachelor of science in
nursing degree. Any changes would afect future students only.
Social Welfare: the school plans to be in compliance with the
regents decision.
She said when the community
is smaller, a higher percentage of
people will know about a persons
relationship problems. She said
a person feels alienated when so
many others know about his or her
personal problems, which made it
difficult for victims to seek help.
At one point in Sarahs relation-
ship, her partner threatened to kill
her because he didnt believe she
loved him enough. She said she
decided enough was enough.
Something had to give and
it wasnt going to be my bones,
Sarah said.
She said she reached out to an
agency in her college town that
worked with LGBTQ domestic
violence survivors. She said they
helped her validate her experience
and told her not to feel ashamed.
At that moment, she said, she real-
ized how unsafe her relationship
was and how much she needed
help.
In retrospect, I think God, that
wasnt love, Sarah said.
October is Domestic Violence
Awareness Month. The Kansas
City Anti-Violence Project caters
to the needs of people within the
LGBTQ community who are in a
violent relationship. Farmer said
KCAVP is there for support and as
a resource for safety. Farmer said
KCAVP provides emergency hotel
shelter, clothes, food and hospital
care for those who need to get
away from a violent relationship.
Gadd-Nelson said she thought
there needed to be more resourc-
es for LGBTQ people in abusive
relationships. KCAVP is the only
resource center that focuses on the
LGBTQ community from Chicago
to Colorado, Farmer said. She
said the community needs more
resources that focus on issues in
the LGBTQ community.
Regardless, Sarah said even if
a person isnt sure if his or her
relationship is abusive, the person
should talk to someone.
You cant be afraid, she said.

offering free testing for chla-
mydia to women under 25. If a
woman has chlamydia and it goes
untreated, it can result in Pelvic
Inflammatory Disease, pregnancy
difficulties, or ultimately, inability
to have children.
Young people arent think-
ing about fertility, said Jennifer
VandeVelde, deputy director of
the Sexually Transmitted Disease
section of the Kansas Department
of Health. They have school,
friends and social lives. Its just
not on their list of priorities to
be tested.
Testing centers, VandeVelde
explains, can be filled with a mix-
ture of patients.
VandeVelde and other DOH
employees are responsible for
notifying patients of their test
results after being screened for
STDs. For college-aged men and
women, the results arent always
good.
Ive called people to notify
them theyve tested positive for
chlamydia and they have been
in absolute hysterics, VandeVelde
said. But then Ive called people
to notify them theyve had HIV
and theyve said, Yeah, I kind of
already knew.
The Lawrence-Douglas County
Health Department and Watkins
Health Center both offer testing
for chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes,
syphilis and HIV, and testing for
chlamydia is free to women under
25 at the Lawrence-Douglas
County Health Department.
The Kansas Department of
Health has representatives who
work closely with both testing
centers, and are available to notify
current and past partners of their
exposure to the disease. All test-
ing and test results are strictly
confidential, VandeVelde said,
especially in Douglas County.
Your nurse isnt going to walk
up to you in the grocery store and
say, Hey, how about that gonor-
rhea test? VandeVelde said.
When past or present sexual
partners are notified of exposure,
the Department of Health does
not disclose any geographic infor-
mation or a time frame. They will
not disclose if it is a past or cur-
rent sexual partner.
On average, one out of four
college students who are tested for
STDs will test positive. The num-
ber of chlamydia cases reported in
Douglas county last year was 209.
However, this is extremely inac-
curate, VandeVelde said, because
they are not reported to the state
of Kansas if the student is not a
Kansas resident.
When it comes to STDs, peo-
ple either dont want to know or
they dont want to seek treatment,
VandeVelde said. Then the cycle
just continues. Chlamydia just
keeps getting passed on and on
and on.

KANSAN.COM / THE UNIVERSITY DAILY KANSAN / thurSDAY, OCtOber 28, 2010 / NEWS / 5A
BY NICOLAS ROESLER
nroesler@kansan.com
Sam Callan has witnessed
Halloween in Lawrence his whole
life. Hes seen the parties. Hes seen
the beer. Hes gotten dressed up,
and hes gone trick-or-treating.
Now a freshman at the University
of Kansas, he works at Abe and
Jakes Landing, 8 E. Sixth St., and is
preparing for its annual Halloween
costume contest.
Halloween weekend is full of
choices for those costume-crazed
students who are looking for a
good time. Some are long-stand-
ing traditions, while others try to
break out of the mold.
The bars are always popular,
Callan said.
Abe and Jakes Landing will host
a costume contest Saturday. It has
held a costume contest for 10 years,
but this year it is giving out $4,000
in cash for the best costumes.
Ryan Lantz, manager of Abe
and Jakes, said this year definitely
upped the ante concerning the
amount of money being given out.
There are four categories in Abe and
Jakes costume contest: best group,
best male costume, best female
costume and the most creative cos-
tume. There will be one overall
winner, who will receive $1,500.
The remaining
$2,500 will be
split up among
the winners of
the other three
categories.
Its one of
the biggest
events of the
year, Lantz
said.
Many stu-
dents look for other places to
spend their night. Jase Archer, a
senior from Overbrook, said he
never has trouble finding a house
party to go to.
I dont like going to the bars
because they are always too
packed, Archer said.
Archer is justified in thinking
this. Lantz said that Abe and Jakes
usually reaches capacity for the
Halloween party.
One alternate option is the annu-
al Mountain Dewds Halloween
party at 1115 Tennessee St. The
Mountain Dewds have thrown
a non-alco-
holic dance
party for eight
years. Adam
Lauridsen, a
senior from
Lawrence, is a
member of the
house and said
his houses party
is a countercul-
ture effort.
I think a lot of people get tired
of the whole drinking is a part of
college culture idea, Lauridsen
said.
The residents do not allow alco-
hol inside the house but allow
people who have been drinking to
go in and dance. Lauridsen said
they usually get between 300 to
500 guests each year.
However, this year Halloween
falls on Sunday, which isnt the
ideal day to bring a crowd into a
bar or a house party. Many bars,
such as Abe and Jakes and The
Cave at The Oread Hotel, 1200
Oread Ave., are holding their
events on Saturday. The Cave is
having a $500 cash prize for its
costume contest.
One bar is not worried about a
crowd showing up for some fun
on Sunday. The Red Lyon Tavern,
944 Massachusetts St., has held
a Halloween party and costume
contest for more than 15 years.
Manager Chris Neverve hopes
the tradition will overpower an
off day for the bar.
Were busy Saturday night
anyway, he said. Were trying to
make Sunday the same.
The Red Lyon Tavern will also
have a prize of about $100.

ASSOCIATED PRESS
RICHMOND, Va. Two Civil
War-era dolls thought to have been
used to smuggle medicine past
Union blockades were X-rayed
Wednesday, disclosing hollowed
papier-mache heads that once
could have contained quinine or
morphine for wounded or malar-
ia-stricken Confederate troops.
The 150-year-old dolls, dubbed
Nina and Lucy Ann, were likely
packed with the drugs and shipped
from Europe in the hope that
Union troops would not inspect
toys when looking for contraband,
a museum official said.
Nina and Lucy Ann were taken
to VCU Medical Center from their
home next door, The Museum of
the Confederacy, to see if the con-
tours inside their craniums and
upper bodies were roomy enough
to carry the medicines.
The conclusion: yes.
The next step could be forensic
testing for any traces of the drugs.
The dolls were given to the
museum by donors who said
they were used to smuggle medi-
cine past Northern blockades to
Southern troops.
Nina was donated to the muse-
um in 1923 by the children of
Gen. James Patton Anderson, who
commanded the Tennessee Army
of the Confederacy. She has red
felt boots.
Lucy Ann, attired in a salmon-
colored cape and dress, was given
to the museum in 1976 by an
anonymous donor. She is adorned
with a coral necklace.
Lucy Ann has an open gash on
the rear of her bonneted head,
possibly made when its contents
were emptied. Nina was likely
disassembled then stitched back
together.
Museum officials believe the
dolls were in fact used for smug-
gling in the Civil War.
In all of the research that I
have been able to do, these are
the only two confirmed smuggling
dolls that Ive been able to find,
said Catherine M. Wright, collec-
tions manager at the museum. The
X-rays were conducted as part of
the museums continuing research
of its vast Confederate holdings,
believed to be the largest in the
U.S.
People have been so interested
in childrens toys and dolls from
the Civil War in general, she said.
The smuggling aspect is very
captivating.
Wright carried the dolls, each 2
to 3 feet long, in a box to the radi-
ology department of the hospital.
Registered technologist Lanea
Bare gently placed each doll on
the X-ray table, taking images
of each facing up, then on their
sides. Ghostly images were then
displayed on a screen in the busy
radiology department, drawing
stares and wisecracks from pass-
ing doctors and technicians as the
dolls lay neatly back in their box.
Looking here, this looks like
a cavity in the
head and upper
chest, said Dr.
Ann S. Fulcher,
pointing to
Ninas image
on the screen.
Thats prob-
ably where the
majority of
the goods, the
medicine, was
put.
The hospital visit was free-of-
charge.
The dolls heads and shoulders
are stitched to the bodies, which
are stuffed with wool or cotton.
Safety pins used to secure their
clothing, including undergar-
ments, were visible in the X-rays.
The museum knows little about
the dolls silent service to the
Confederacy.
One theory is that they were
purchased in Europe, then shipped
to a Southern port with the medi-
cines stuffed in their heads to
avoid detection by the Norths
blockade of Southern ports.
The idea behind the smug-
gling dolls is that even if a ship
was boarded and searched, it was
unlikely that they were going to
do such a thorough search that
they would find this medication
hidden inside of dolls, Wright
said.
The blockade from 1861 until
1865 was intended to thwart the
delivery of arms, soldiers and
supplies such as medicine to the
South. Rhett Butler, the fiction-
al rogue in Margaret Mitchells
Gone With the Wind, was a
blockade runner.
A well-known illustration from
the period shows a woman tying
bundles of medication under
her hoop dress for delivery to
Confederate troops, Wright said.
Once the dolls reached a port,
the powdered quinine would
be pressed
into pills for
S o u t h e r n
troops, Wright
said.
M a l a r i a
was wide-
spread among
Union and
Conf eder at e
troops. Some
900,000 Union
troops con-
tracted malaria during the war,
leaving 4,700 dead, according to
the Medical and Surgical History
of the Civil War.
Statistics for Southern troops
were not compiled but malaria
was probably more widespread,
said Robert Krick, park histo-
rian at the Richmond National
Battlefield Park.

Batman director
announces title
of trilogy flm
Los AnGeLes
christopher nolans third
batman flm will be called the
dark knight rises and though
the Gotham city auteur isnt
ready to reveal the villain of his
2012 flm, he did eliminate one
of the big contenders: It wont
be the riddler, nolan said in an
exclusive interview.
nolan was most eager to talk
about the fact that Warner bros.
had agreed with his argument
that the flm should resist the
current 3-d craze and instead
use high-defnition approaches
and ImAX cameras to strike out
on a diferent cinematic path
than the stereoscopic technol-
ogy that, for better or worse,
has become the dominant
conversation in the blockbuster
sector.
As for the title, it shows the
writer-directors intention to
keep his bruce Wayne trilogy
tightly stitched together.
What if nolan somehow
brings back harvey dent? the
only reason I even mention it
is because, back during post-
production on the second flm,
nolan told me that the title the
dark knight was just as much
about dent and his fall from
the status of shining-knight
civic crusader. dent was plainly
dead at the end of the last flm,
though, and nolan has been
intent on keeping his Gotham
city flm frmly rooted in a gritty,
gangland realism this isnt
a franchise that has veered of
into the supernatural or even
much super-science.
As with dark knight, the
new flm has a script written by
nolan and his brother, Jonah,
and its based on a story by the
director and david Goyer.

Sunday isnt fun day
HuMOr
F
or a brief moment recently,
gay men and women were
granted equality in the
United States armed forces. On
Oct. 12, a federal judge ordered
an immediate halt to the Dont
Ask, Dont Tell (DADT) policy.
On the following day, enforcement
stopped.
Te opportunity that the end
of the ban provided was most
acutely illustrated by Dan Choi, a
lieutenant in the army and an Iraq
war veteran. Choi was discharged
afer saying he was gay. On Oct. 13,
however, Choi walked into a Times
Square recruiting station and
started the process of re-enlisting.
Tat moment of opportunity
was quickly dashed, however,
when the Ninth Circuit Court of
Appeals reversed an injunction
against the policy last Wednesday,
reinstating the ban, at least
temporarily, during the appeals
process.
Its unfortunate that the ban
could not remain suspended
while the judicial process moved
forward. Although brief, the
few days without DADT did not
produce any of the nightmare
scenarios that its supporters
sometimes claim would occur if
the ban was lifed. Te military
continued to function. Unit
cohesion was not threatened.
More unfortunate, albeit
somewhat understandable,
was the Justice Departments
decision to appeal the end of
DADT. It is customary for the
government to defend existing
laws in court, which meant
that ending DADT was quickly
appealed. Te executive branch of
the government is charged with
enforcing and carrying out laws
passed by Congress and defending
DADT is part of that process.
Administrations should not be able
to decide which laws it will or will
not enforce.
Nevertheless, this puts
President Obamas government
in the politically-awkward
position of defending a law while
simultaneously opposing it.
Welcome steps, however, have
been taken in minimizing the
impact of DADT. Going forward
only fve military ofcials will now
be responsible for discharging
service members who violate the
policy.
DADT may not truly end,
though, until Congress repeals
the law. Students must continue to
pressure their representatives and
senators to support repeal. Te
chance for legislative repeal may
look slim, but it still represents the
single best and efective way to end
the discriminatory policy once and
for all.

Contrary to popular belief, if you get run over by a bus on
campus you do not get free tuition. Youll probably be dead.
The amount of carelessness that students on campus take when
walking across Jayhawk Blvd. baffles me. Ive seen so many close
calls at work (either when I was driving, or someone else was) that
it continues to baffle my mind that we dont have a serious acci-
dent every week on campus!
Safety is giving yourself enough time and space to compensate
for others mistakes. People on campus do not seem to understand
that basic concept, even though we are an institution of higher
learning. Remember when driving to stay alert and keep your
focus on driving. Leave extra room for that text messager in the
lane next to you. When you are a pedestrian, pause your phone
conversation or text message to listen for vehicles and look for
bicyclists. Take extra time to look at your surroundings and be
aware of vehicles that could be crossing your path. Take a few
extra moments for safety-it could save your life or someone elses.

T
his year Halloween
again falls on a Sunday.
And if I remember
correctly what happened the
last time Halloween was on a
Sunday and I was of trick-or-
treating age (1999, the year
we had it all All Tat
that is) we ended up trick-
or-treating in the town next
to ours on Saturday and our
town on Sunday.
In all honesty, Im pretty sure
my Mom got tired and we ended
up only going on Saturday. I
was raised an atheist, so I wasnt
quite sure what was going on.
Tis year Halloween is on
a Sunday again. Since Te
University of Kansas did not
have the decency to give us a
day of on Nov. 1 (also known
as Christmas Commercial Day),
most Halloween parties this
weekend will take place on the
30th and 31st.
However, its not just us.
Many children around the
United States will be trick-or-
treating on Saturday the 30th
instead of the 31st. Tats right.
Sunday has won again.
When will Sunday stop its
reign of terror? In history,
Sunday has been evil for years.
My mother told me the tale of
one of Sundays murders when I
was only a child.
Wonderland, an amusement
park on an island in Wichita,
Kansas, may sound a lot like a
farfetched fairy tale I mean,
a place called Wonderland
in Wichita, Kansas? But the
story is true! Wonderland was
built in 1905 and it featured
a rollercoaster, a carousel, a
theater, and other attractions.
Te theater showcased many
popular vaudeville and musical
acts like the Marx Brothers and
John Philip Sousa.
In 1918, Sunday loomed
over the horizon like the foggy,
devils day it was. Laws were
put in place in Wichita in 1918
that disallowed businesses to
operate on Sundays. Te
Sunday theater performances
were key to Wonderlands
revenue, so it closed down. In
other words, Sunday destroyed
Wonderland.
I shudder now when I think
about the joy that Sunday
smothered, but folks, its not
done there. Tere are still many
businesses so terrifed of Sunday
they close early or all day. Ive
never been quite sure why
Sunday hates us, the human
race, so much.
With research I found that
Sundays only a day of the week
that we created, and theres no
way it could destroy the fun of
others on its own. I also found
a horror that may shock you
all. A zombie named Jesus
rose from his grave on Sunday
nearly 2000 years ago! I can only
assume that people lock up their
shops and stay inside all day on
Sunday because they fear he and
his zombie friends will come for
them as well.
So, maybe it is a good
thing that kids arent out this
Halloween on Sunday. Te last
thing wed want is Sunday and
the great zombie Jesus to ruin
Halloween for everyone! But, on
the other hand, I think taking
this sitting down isnt right. So if
you have children, prepare them
in case zombies rear their ugly
heads this Halloween. We have
to take Sunday back like that
band tried to so many years ago.
Dont let Jesus ruin Halloween
for you!
Carmichael is a junior from
Mulvane in flm and media
studies and journalism.
I am brown, Muslim and Paki-
stani.
Youd think those credentials
would normally make me immune
from terrorist attacks, consider-
ing it is widely believed that most
terrorists are also brown, Muslim
and Pakistani.
Unfortunately, the war on ter-
ror, and terror itself, is all but nor-
mal. Tis is the story of a Pakistani
struggling with that abnormality.
Te more we try to simplify the
situation, the less we have in our
arsenal against extremist ideology.
Te best I can do in this column
is complicate things for you, since
grappling with confusion is better
than settling for simplifcation.
As much as most modern Paki-
stanis distance themselves from an
extremist ideology, it only takes a
trip to New Yorks John F. Kennedy
Airport to remind me that we will
remain connected to the so-called
fundamentalist tendencies back
home. Afer all the time Ive spent
there, the secondary inspection
room is no longer something that
I need to get used to. It has already
become a place to catch up on
reading and meet other people
who are also perhaps missing
their connecting fights and have
a headache. Te poor pilots arent
even spared.
Did you go anywhere but
Pakistan? an ofcer asked me
last December. No, I said. Have
you ever been in a military?
Have you ever owned a frearm?
Similar replies. Tis September,
the whole charade lost its drama.
Te wait, much longer, was now
quite anticlimatic. All they wanted
to know was whether I lived on
campus. All that waiting for noth-
ing? I thought. At least give me
some credit for the hippie garb
Im trying to pull of. Heck, even
the Pakistani authorities send me
to anti-narcotics until they realize
Im going to New York.
We Pakistanis make jokes about
everything. We learn ways to tune
out all that goes on around us.
Does that make me an innocent
bystander? Or does that make me
guilty of ignorance?
Ive lived in Pakistan for 20
years now. Te last few have been
turbulent, perhaps dangerous.
But Ive never witnessed an attack
frst-hand. Does that mean Im
not from the Pakistan most people
imagine? Does that mean Im elite
(or elitist) or just plain lucky?
A few days ago, one of my
fathers colleagues was gunned
down because of his continued
public criticism of the extremist
philosophy. He had been under
threat, he knew what was coming,
but he kept going, trying to get
his word across. Tis was a great
loss to the moderate cause and to
humanity in general.
Does that episode make me
more of a bystander? Or perhaps
more of a victim?
What do I make of the fact that
these fghters, criminals (although
heinous ones), are not granted the
same rights that prisoners or com-
batants must be in all other situ-
ations? What are we to say about
the people who are unfortunate
enough to live in the same village
as one of these terrorists and are
killed in an unsanctioned drone
strike that was meant to eliminate
the threat?
Sure, our president is far
enough from the reality of things
to say that collateral damage does
not worry him, but should that
prompt us to forget the values that
our country holds and apply sepa-
rate standards to some segment of
our citizenry?
What used to be sacred places
are now battlegrounds. Every
Tursday night, Suf worshippers
will worry whether they will come
out alive from their shrines. Te
army, the police and the govern-
ment are threatened, as are for-
eigners at times, but the individual
citizen now bears the brunt of the
threat. Every Friday, we no longer
hug each other as we go to prayer;
we pat each other down. Who
knows where that suicide vest is
hiding?
Dialogue in the United States
about Pakistan, and about the
Muslim world in general, is
oversimplifed. Tere are no di-
chotomies. Muslims are ofen the
other in most discussions in this
part of the world. Every now and
then I hear how many Americans
have never met a Muslim or a
Pakistani but would like to meet
one. And every now and then I
hear a Pakistani saying that theres
only so much they can do of
course a Pakistani will try to pres-
ent the other side of Pakistan, but
everyones sick of that story.
I am brown, Muslim and Paki-
stani, and Im confused. I hope
you are too.

Its a chilly Tuesday night and
all is calm in the garage of the
Wakarusa Township Fire Station.
Fifteen students sit in neat rows of
four while they listen to the first
part of what will become a three and
a half hour lecture on fire hoses and
knots. The peace is quickly broken
though, when their teacher, Amanda
Brittain, looks up from her book and
says, Gear Test.
In a flash, the students are up
and racing across the garage toward
their firefighting gear. They now
have a minute to put on their shoes,
pants, coats, gloves, face masks and
helmets and to get ready for their
oxygen tanks.
Gear tests are pretty fun, said
Dillon Brown, a customer supervi-
sor at the KU Bookstore. For a real
fire, minutes count and we need to
be able to go as fast as possible.
After one minute, a few students
are still fumbling for loose straps
and have yet to put on helmets.
Lets do it again, says Lieutenant
Greg Anderson.
Brown is just one of four
University-affiliated individuals
who are enrolled in the Wakarusa
Townships Volunteer Firefighter
Program. The four-month long
course meets twice a week and every
other Saturday for four hours at a
time to learn the technical, analyti-
cal and physical skills necessary to
become a firefighter.
We usually have lectures dur-
ing the week and then put what we
learn to use on Saturday, said Becca
Burwinkle, a senior from Overland
Park.
Forcible entry was the topic of
last Saturdays class. For hours the
students sawed, drilled and smashed
their way into a special trailer pro-
vided by the Universitys community
education department.
I learned that baseball bat swings
are not an appropriate way to break
a window, laughed Rafael Sanchez,
an Administrative Associate with the
School of Pharmacy. Shards of glass
probably wouldnt be the best thing
if someone was trying to escape on
the other side.
Program leaders warn that while
it is fun, the high cost and time com-
mitment are not for everyone.
Almost every year well get
people who sign up for the pro-
gram and then realize that the time
commitment is just too much, said
Chris Moore, chief of the Wakarusa
Township. There is a lot of work like
reading assignments or volunteering
that can only happen outside of the
classroom.
Readings require the students to
memorize different knots, gauges,
hoses and much more.
You have to learn it, Burwinkle
said. Peoples lives depend on it.
Learning these skills is important
for the students as well.
Over the last four to five years,
Lieutenant Greg Anderson notes
there have been 100 to 115 deaths
for firefighters in the line of duty.
The majority of those that
occurred were volunteer firefight-
ers, Anderson said. We have to
stress to them to work as hard, as if
they were firefighters who did this
as a career.
Despite the hard work and risk
involved in becoming a volunteer,
for these 15 people, the benefits will
outweigh the risks.
Right now Im working towards
a dream of mine Ive had my whole
life, Brown said. There arent many
careers where your job is to help
people.

Pick up the college basketball
preview issue of any national pub-
lication. Flip to the Kansas page. In
all likelihood, there sits yet another
Marcus Morris profile, and right-
fully so. The junior forward was the
most consistent player in a Kansas
uniform last year and has, by all
accounts, taken big steps forward
in the offseason.
But in the shadows of that spot-
light lurk Morris frontcourt mates,
perhaps most notably his twin
brother and newly-listed center
Markieff. Marcus is the first to tell
you not to forget about his brother.
Keef became a monster over the
summer, he said. Keef is going to
surprise a lot of people. Nobody
really got a chance to really see him
come out because he always had
Cole in front of him.
Markieff or Keef, as friends and
teammates call him has bulked
up over the summer to 6-foot-10
and 245 pounds (from 6-9, 232).
The weight gain is most notice-
able when the twins stand next to
each other. Marcus has a fluid, ath-
letic look to him, while Markieff s
shoulders are a bit broader and his
neck resembles a rodeo bulls more
than a basket-
ball players
thick and full of
muscle.
Hes got
a really nice
body, coach Bill
Self said. Hes
got some things
that are really
hard to guard
from a move
standpoint and
a size standpoint. I think hes finally
understanding how to use his body
in relationship to what hes got.
His role will likely change from
an inside-out style player to a more
pure post with the departure of
Cole Aldrich, who led the Jayhawks
in rebounding and blocked shots
last year. Someone will have to fill
that role for the Jayhawks, and for
the moment it appears that burden
lies on Markieff.
I know the big fellas not here,
he said.
With the size and role change
comes a more well-developed post
up game. Markieff said the added
weight gives him the versatility to
play a power or finesse game and it
could benefit him against a variety
of defensive matchups.
It depends on the opponent,
Markieff said. If its a strong guy
Ill step outside. If its a smaller guy,
Ill put him in the basket.
Self said Markieff s biggest
development has been in his inside
game, where he has worked with
assistant coach Danny Manning
also the best post player not named
Wilt Chamberlain to ever play at
Kansas to develop his offensive
repertoire.
Hes got good touch on the ball
from range, Self said, but hes
become more of a post player to
me. He understands that he can
score on the block.
Thats not to say he cant still hit
the outside shot. Markieff was a 53
percent shooter from three-point
range last year, and Self said hed
take more than the 19 attempts that
he took last year. Since he came to
Kansas, the Jayhawks have won
nine of the 10 games in which hes
made at least one three-pointer.
Hell shoot more threes this
year, Self said, because hell play
more. But he doesnt need to fall in
love with it.
Thomas Robinson, who will
slide into Markieff s role of first big
off the bench,
said he sees a
different type
of improve-
ment.
Hes smart-
er, Robinson
said. Hes
always been a
smart player,
but right now
I feel like hes a
veteran when
it comes to this. He knows stuff. He
thinks 10 times faster.
If what the twins say is true, they
wont have to think faster around
each other. Marcus said there is a
connection between them on the
court that helps them understand
where the other is at all times, even
if the fans or coaches cant see it.
Its going to be passes that some
people dont think that I know its
there that Keef s going to catch and
dunk, Marcus said. Its going to be
fun. Its going to be fun to watch us
play together.

T
he traditional counter-
argument of wait until
basketball season has
never truly ended an argument. It
is similar to chanting overrated
when a team defeats a higher-
ranked and supposedly more tal-
ented team.
Both of these thoughts insinu-
ate that a fans team is not talented
enough to defeat whichever team
they just lost to, or that it would
not have been able to beat its
opponents if they were as talented
as the nation thought. The first
argument is the weakest because
it only puts up a smokescreen and
deflects attention to another sport
when a losing team can no longer
be defended.
Kansas football has produced
opportunities for both of these
arguments with its shocking victo-
ry against Georgia Tech and subse-
quent losing streak. The Jayhawks
have had tough seasons in the past,
including last year, but the lack of
hope seems different this year.
Maybe the pessimism is simply
due to the Jayhawks poor 2-5
record and their winless Big 12
streak. Or maybe it stems from the
uncertainty around a new coach
who was advertised as a miracle
worker, but turned out to be just a
man who still struggles to motivate
college athletes and lead them to
success. Even more disappoint-
ing was Kansas failure to defeat
in-state rival Kansas State. No loss
hurts more than a rivalry game
you can ask athletes at any level
and theyd probably agree. The
main issue becomes pride, and
once that is injured, it is one of the
hardest to rehabilitate.
Rivalries will be especially inter-
esting for Kansas this year. The
football team lost to Kansas State
and is expected to lose to Missouri
when they play on Nov. 27.
But when you turn to basket-
ball, there will also be a challenge.
For the first time, Kansas State is
picked to finish ahead of Kansas
at the end of the regular season, a
result that would snap Kansas six-
year streak of regular season titles.
As we see the start of mens
basketball on Tuesday, there will
be added pressure on the program.
Not that they cant handle it, but
there will certainly be pressure
after a disappointing football
season. This campus thrives on
victory. After all, the recruiting
slogan is Kansas: A great place to
be a champion. Now that Bill Self
has given this generation a taste
of a championship, expectation
increases to new levels for the bas-
ketball team.
The fans should support the
football team in their efforts the
rest of the season and show up in
force for the Border Showdown
at Arrowhead, but they should
remember that this team is not
without challenges. There is a new
coach in his first year at a program
where he has not yet brought in a
recruiting class. Football will get
better, but in the meantime there
is a basketball season to watch,
and the Jayhawks will taste victory
again on the court and take back
the pride that comes with defeat-
ing their closest rivals.

This is Mecham week.
Starting repetitions at prac-
tice, relentless media attention
and an upcoming start at Iowa
State are all on junior quarter-
back Quinn Mechams mind.
However, his
performance
in practice
shows an
excited player
ready to play.
He has
stepped in,
ready to get
better, and
hes ready to
move this team forward, coach
Turner Gill said.
After practice on Sunday
Gill commented on the energy
Mecham brought to the practice
field. And halfway through the
week leading up to his first start
in a Kansas uniform, Mecham is
continuing to uplift the offense
at practice.
He has actually brought some
energy to the team, Gill said
after Wednesdays practice.
A similar situation of starting
quarterbacks going down midway
through the season has happened
to Gill before. At Buffalo, his
starting quarterback was injured
on a Thursday before a big game.
Gill said the backup came in
during practice, and right off the
bat brought increased energy. His
team ended up winning the game
on Saturday.
Mecham has had an entire
week to get ready for this game,
and his teammates are rallying
around him.
Theyre excited for him, Gill
said, and hes excited for him-
self.
At the start of the season,
Mecham was planning on red-
brotherly love

I dont see Derrick Rose losing to Brandon
Jennings, Andrew Bogut and the Bucks.
Only John Wall has the ability to create a

ASSOCIATED PRESS
CLEVELAND LeBrons for-
mer team has already done some-
thing his new, super team in sunny
Miami couldnt: Beat Boston.
Playing its first game in seven
years without LeBron James, the
Cleveland Cavaliers stunned the
Celtics 95-87 in their season open-
er Wednesday night, a win that at
least for one night gave local fans
reason to believe that life will be
OK minus the two-time MVP.
J.J. Hickson scored 21 points,
Daniel Gibson added 16 all
in the second half and the
Cavaliers made several big, clutch
plays to hold off the Celtics, who
defeated James and the Miami
Heat on Tuesday night.
Rajon Rondo scored 18, Paul
Pierce 13, Ray Allen 12 and Kevin
Garnett had 15 rebounds for
Boston, which
led by 11 points
in the third
quarter but
was outscored
27-14 in the
fourth.
Gibson, who
missed his first
eight shots,
made four free
throws in the
final 17.2 sec-
onds for Cleveland, dealt a dev-
astating blow in July when James
announced he was leaving as a
free agent. The loss rocked a city
that hasnt celebrated a pro sports
championship since 1964 and trig-
gered predictions the Cavaliers
would slide back among the NBAs
bottom dwellers.
Not just yet.
As the final seconds ticked
off, Cleveland fans jumped for
joy, owner Dan Gilbert pumped
his fist and hugged those sit-
ting near him, first-year coach
Byron Scott smiled and confetti
fell from the ceiling like it did
so many times while James was
around.
With the score tied 86-all,
Clevelands Anthony Parker
drilled a 3-pointer with one tick
left on the 24-second shot clock.
Boston got a tip-in from Glen
Davis, and during a timeout,
the officials reviewed Parkers
shot and determined it was in
fact a 3.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers dis-
agreed, shaking his head and
saying No way. Rivers seemed
to be contesting if Parker got the
shot off in time. It did appear
to take him several seconds to
gather himself and shoot.
Allen misfired on Bostons
next trip, Pierce missed another
and Anderson Varejao made
two free throws to put the Cavs
up 91-86 with 24 seconds to go.
Rondos free throw cut it to
four, but Gibson made two free
throws to make it 93-87. Pierce
then missed again, and Gibson
put it away with two more free
throws, giving the Cavs some
sense of revenge after being
bumped from the playoffs last
season by Boston.
The Cavs played without start-
ing point guard Mo Williams,
still working
his way back
from a groin
injury before
camp train-
ing camp
o p e n e d .
Scott said
Williams is
day to day
and wants
him to get
another few practices before he
returns. Williams played in just
one preseason game because of
the injury, and missed five days
recently to attend his father-in-
laws funeral in Mississippi.
There wasnt a trace of James
inside an arena he helped put
on the NBAs map. Earlier in the
day on a building outside, a giant
black-and-white banner depicting
Clevelands skyline was hung in
the exact spot where James iconic
image once towered over down-
town.
No. 23 is gone, but hardly for-
gotten. Hell be back on Dec. 2,
and Cleveland fans cant wait.

Selby, team still
awaiting decision
We are in the same stage of the
Josh Selby situation as we were in
the past few months: nowhere.
Coach bill
Self responded
yesterday to
media requests
on the status of
freshman Josh
Selby. Selby is
still not cleared
to play.
Joshs status
for competition hasnt changed,
Self said in a release. While he
has met NCAA academic require-
ments to be on aid, practice and
compete this year, we continue to
work with the NCAA as we review
his amateur status. We will not
play Josh in games until that pro-
cess is complete and a decision is
rendered.
Self said the team is done talk-
ing about it until the NCAA has
made their decision.
We support and respect the
process, and hope that it is over
sooner rather than later. but we
dont expect a decision on this
before the regular season begins.
We will not comment further until
the process is complete.

Missouri tops Kansas in three sets
By IAN CUMMINGS
icummings@kansan.com
Missouri started strong on
offense and out-blocked Kansas
13-8 Wednesday night to sweep
the Border Showdown rematch
in Columbia, Mo., with scores of
23-25, 21-25 and 26-28.
Sophomore middle blocker
Tayler Tolefree said all three of
the sets were close.
It was easy to let a couple of
things go wrong, and youre right
back to it being a tight score, she
said.
Kansas offense kept up with
Missouri (14-8 overall, 6-6 Big
12) for most of the first set, where
both teams hit with comparable
efficiencies. Kansas managed
a .333 hitting percentage while
Missouri topped them at .342.
Tolefree led Kansas in that set
with five kills.
In the second set, the Kansas
offense ran into serious trouble.
Kansas (13-10, 4-8) held a lead
for the first half of the set, but
when their lead reached 15-12,
the momentum of the game
reversed. Missouri answered with
four unanswered points and car-
ried the lead to end. Both teams
saw their offensive numbers drop
in the second set, but Kansas was
the poorer for it. The Jayhawks
hit for a .020 hitting percentage in
the set, while the Tigers managed
a team average of .111.
Missouri seniors Paola
Ampudia and Julianna Klein and
junior Brittney Brimmage reached
double-digit kills on Wednesday
13, 11 and 10, respectively
while no Kansas players hit better
than nine. Missouri out-blocked
Kansas and recorded three more
than Kansas 54 digs.
The third set came down to the
wire, but ultimately went to the
Tigers. Kansas was behind 17-20
when freshman middle blocker
Caroline Jarmoc served three aces
in a row. Those points combined
with senior outside hitter Karina
Garlingtons kill and a Missouri
attack error gave Kansas the a
22-20 advantage. But Missouri
scored three unanswered points
to regain the lead at 23-22. The
two teams went back and forth
until Klein scored two kills and
ended the match.
The middle blockers on the
Kansas side had more success
than the rest of the squad. Jarmoc
had the teams second-best hit-
ting efficiency, with .333 and the
three service aces. Tolefree had
the Jayhawks best hitting effi-
ciency of the night with .571 on
eight kills and no errors.
They were by no means
an easy team they were a team
that we really needed to be good
against, Tolefree said.
She said the Missouri defense
was boosted by good blocking.
We kind of put ourselves in
a spot that we had to hit it into
their hands. They did their part,
she said.
Senior outside hitter Jenna
Kaiser contributed five kills and
a career-high four blocks to the
effort, while Garlington and
Jarmoc led the team with nine
kills each.
But, overall, the Jayhawks did
not have a successful outing on
offense; two players ended the
match with negative hitting per-
centages and the team averaged
.132 much lower than usual.
Coach Ray Bechard credited
Missouri with coming into the
match with a good game plan.
Their ability to block more
balls than we did created some
issues at the end of this game, he
said. We need to adjust a little
bit better on the swings we were
taking, he said. And we were a
little bit slow to do that tonight.
The Jayhawks return to
Lawrence on Saturday to play
Texas Tech.

Duncan, Ginobli
lead Spurs in win
ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN ANTONIO Tim
Duncan had 23 points and 12
rebounds, and the San Antonio
Spurs beat the Indiana Pacers
122-109 on Wednesday night
in the season opener for both
teams.
Manu Ginobili scored 22
points for the Spurs, who blew an
early double-digit lead and nearly
their goal of starting strong in
what could be the last season for
their Big Three.
Roy Hibbert led Indiana with
28 points and Danny Granger
had 26. Darren Collison scored
19 points in his debut for the
Pacers, who fell apart in the
fourth quarter.
Tony Parker, starting the final
year of his contract with the
Spurs, had 20 points and nine
assists.
No longer among the NBA
favorites, the Spurs are mindful
of beating the teams they should
beat and not falling behind early
in the West. San Antonio labored
out of the gate with an overhauled
roster last year and doesnt want
to be so patient
this time.
The Pacers,
coming off
a dreadful
32-win sea-
son, showed
promise before
squanderi ng
a close game.
They erased an
early 10-point
deficit thanks
to Hibbert, who was 10 of 17
from the field, and carried a slim
lead late into the third.
But the Spurs pulled away in
the fourth.
Richard Jefferson opened the
final quarter with a 3-pointer
from the corner, and after Mike
Dunleavy missed two free throws
that would have tied the game,
Ginobili gave the Spurs momen-
tum for good with another
3-pointer.
Ginobili was 5 of 9 from behind
the 3-point line in a familiar Big
Three-led win for the Spurs. How
much longer the championship
trio will be together is in doubt
with Parker in the final year of his
contract, though the star point
guard has repeatedly said he
wants to remain in San Antonio.
Collison was 7 of 13 and had
seven assists. The Pacers hope
theyve found their point guard
after years of shuffling at the
position, acquiring the New
Orleans point guard who filled in
for Chris Paul when Hornets star
was injured last season.
Unlike the Pacers, the Spurs
didnt get to show off their prized
new addition. Brazilian 7-footer
Tiago Splitter watched from the
bench in street clothes while con-
tinuing to nurse a calf sprain he
got just three days into training
camp.
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich
said before the game that Splitter
would likely miss Saturdays game
against New Orleans but would
p r o b a b l y
play Monday
at the Los
A n g e l e s
Clippers.
Hes quite
f rust rated,
P o p o v i c h
said.
Even with-
out Splitter,
the Spurs still
unveiled a
change in their frontcourt, start-
ing DeJuan Blair at center. Blair
was a 6-foot-7 spark plug off the
bench as a rookie a year ago, but
his debut as an opening-night
starter was shaky.
Blair had nine points on
just 2-of-9 shooting and three
rebounds. He was the Spurs
youngest opening-night starter
since Parker was 20 in 2002.
The Spurs are mindful of
beating the teams they
should beat and not
falling behind early in
the West.

Financial implications may
play a role in scheduling
BY MIKE LAVIERI
mlavieri@kansan.com
North Dakota State Athletic
Director Gene Taylor recognizes
that Bison football is expected to
be the patsy: an easy, early-season
win for the opposition. He expects
that was the case when Kansas
scheduled North Dakota State for
its opening game.
After losing to NDSU, 6-3, the
Jayhawks managed to salvage a win
against second-tier New Mexico
State, 42-16. In all, Kansas paid
more than $1 million to post a 1-1
record against what were to be two
season-padding victories.
NDSU fared much better in the
arrangement with Kansas. It not
only won the game, but received a
guarantee of $350,000 to travel to
Lawrence. Taylor said $350,000 is
a typical asking price for the Bison
to play non-conference games
against top NCAA schools.
A Football Championship
Subdivision opponent looks like
an easy win on any Football Bowl
Subdivision teams schedule. That
wasnt the case for KU this year
when Larry Keating, Kansas senior
associate athletics director, created
the schedule, which is made two
to four years in advance of the
season. This seasons schedule is
a product of the Mark Mangino
era. Current head coach Turner
Gill has discussed scheduling with
Keating for the 2011 season going
forward.
Keating, who is in charge of
scheduling for football as well as
mens and womens basketball, has
to schedule at least six home games
a year. Four will come from the Big
12 schedule and the other two will
be non-conference games typi-
cally the home end of a home and
home with a FBS team and a guar-
anteed game with a FCS team.
According to Keating, non-
conference home games are not
scheduled just for easy wins, but
for financial reasons as well. Home
games are profitable, particularly
home openers that are expected to
be victories.
In 2008, Kansas earned an aver-
age of about $1.36 million per
game in ticket sales. The money
goes directly to Kansas Athletics
Inc.s budget. Football has a budget
that is for everyday expenses such
as recruiting. In 2008, the foot-
ball programs operating budget
was about $17.7 million, which
comprised of ticket sales, NCAA/
conference distribution and con-
cessions.
There is an operating budget
for each sport, but it does not
include grants and aid, travel and
salaries and fringe benefits, said
Susan Wachter, Kansas Athletics
Inc. chief financial officer.
Part of the budget is used to
offer a guarantee to a FCS school.
A typical guarantee from Kansas
for a FCS school is between
$300,000 and $400,000, according
to Keating.
On Sept. 25, the Jayhawks played
FBS opponent New Mexico State
and paid $700,000 for the Aggies
to come to Lawrence.
Keating said a FBS school guar-
antee generally costs between
$400,000 and $700,000. But that
isnt always the case.
In the second home game this
season, the Jayhawks hosted FBS
opponent Georgia Tech. Next
season, Kansas will reciprocate
by traveling to Atlanta to play
Tech. A home-and-home series
usually exchanges a guarantee of
about $150,000 to offset expenses,
Keating said.
During a two-year period, two
guaranteed games will net more
money than a home-and-home
series. Having those games gives
the home team an advantage.
The team paying the guarantee
doesnt guarantee them a win a
home, but history is usually on the
favorites side.
FBS teams have a combined
842-104 (.890) record against FCS
teams since 1996. The Big 12 is
88-3 (.967) in that time period.
Taylor knows his schools
couldnt compete week in and
week out with FBS schools.
We dont have the allocation
of scholarships like Division I-A,
Taylor said.
However, the games against FBS
teams are more beneficial to the
Bisons athletic department.
We make a little more with
a guarantee than a home game,
Taylor said.
For NDSU, early-season guar-
antees generate more revenue than
its home games. The Bison will
earn about $100,000 to $150,000
per home game. The money they
receive is also figured into NDSUs
athletic department budget and
does not go directly back to the
football program. NDSU does not
list the financial information on its
athletics website.
The Bison try to schedule guar-
anteed games regionally. Taylor
said this is because this is based on
the fans Bison fans travel well.
North Dakota State usually tries
to schedule games in the region.
It has played Minnesota (twice),
Iowa State, Ball State, Wyoming
and Central Michigan since 2006.
NDSU is 4-3 in those games, nota-
bly beating Minnesota 27-21 and
Central Michigan 44-14, both in
2007.

SAN FRANCISCO The
San Francisco Giants turned the
World Series opener into an extra
long round of batting practice
against Cliff Lee and the Texas
Rangers.
Freddy Sanchez sprayed balls
down the lines. Cody Ross and
Aubrey Huff hit line drives up the
middle. Juan Uribe launched a
shot far, far over the wall.
So much for the unbeatable
Mr. Lee.
The Giants battered him and
the bullpen, with Sanchez hit-
ting three doubles and keying a
six-run burst in an 11-7 romp
Wednesday night that looked
even more lopsided.
What shaped up as a pitchers
duel between Tim Lincecum and
Lee quickly deteriorated into a
rout. By the end, the Rangers
played like the World Series rook-
ies they are they made four
errors, Ian Kinsler took a mis-
taken turn around first base and
manager Ron Washington may
have waited too late to pull his
ace.
Former Giants slugger Barry
Bonds had plenty to cheer for
from his seat next to the San
Francisco dugout, especially when
a tie game suddenly became an
8-2 thumping in the fifth inning.
Rangers president and part-own-
er Nolan Ryan sat there glumly in
a suit and tie, his prized pitcher
a wreck.
Added up, the Giants improved
to 10-0 against Texas at AT&T
Park. Showers are in the forecast
for Game 2 on Thursday night
when Matt Cain and his 0.00 ERA
in two playoff start takes on C.J.
Wilson and the Rangers.
The Rangers did late dam-
age, scoring three times in the
ninth. Nelson Cruz hit a two-out,
two-run double off Brian Wilson
before the Fear the Beard closer
finished it off.
Sanchez finished with four of
the Giants 14 hits, which includ-
ed six doubles. Right after Lee
walked off the mound in the fifth,
Uribe greeted sidearming reliever
Darren ODay with a three-run
jolt that broke it open.
San Francisco had gotten
through the NL playoffs because
of their dominant pitching, plus
an ability to win one-run deci-
sions. None of that came into
play on this beautiful night for
baseball.
Lincecum struggled at the
beginning, making a strange
mental error, but settled down as
the game progressed. The shaggy-
haired ace walked off to a stand-
ing ovation in the sixth, his glove
in his right hand and his head
down.

PHILADELPHIA Dwyane
Wade, LeBron James and Chris
Bosh have their first win with
Miami, and the Big Three got help
from some big 3s in the Heats
97-87 victory over the Philadelphia
76ers on Wednesday night.
Playing with purpose a night
after an 88-80 loss in a hyped
showdown with Boston, the three
looked as if they still need some
games to get used to playing with
each other. Only Wade, with 30
points, looked particularly sharp
against the Sixers. The Heat hit
three straight 3-pointers in the
third quarter to bust open an
eight-point halftime lead.
James scored 16 points and
Bosh had 15.
James and the Heat just couldnt
squash the Sixers, who went on a
15-3 run late in the fourth to make
it surprisingly competitive.
Wades tough driving layup gave
him 30 points on 10-for-20
shooting and sealed the win.
A James not LeBron led
the Heat. James Jones hit 6-of-
9 3s and scored 20 points. The
Heat shot 50 percent from 3-point
range enough to make up for
tough shooting nights from James
and Bosh (combined 11 for 24).
Up next, Fridays home open-
er against
Orlando.
For all the
buzz sur-
rounding the
Heat, there
were plenty
of patches of
empty seats in
the announced
sellout crowd
of 20,389 in the
Sixers home opener.
Evan Turner led the Sixers with
16 points in his first NBA game.
Lou Williams and Thaddeus
Young had 15.
James heard the loudest boos
when he was introduced from fans
that can deliver them as vocifer-
ously as any city in the league. He
heard them occasionally during
the game, but the volume was
turned down and the noise mostly
disappeared as the Heat pulled
away.
One fans sign called James
LeBum, the lyin King while
another read I witnessed no
championship.
James was slow to warm up, and
played the first quarter like it was
a preseason game. He was whis-
tled for a travel, an offensive foul
and threw the ball out of bounds
off a drive down the lane.
James drew a crowd of onlookers
during warmups, including sev-
eral members of the Philadelphia
Flyers.
Before the game, James said
he already forgotten all about the
Boston loss. He didnt seem to
care about suggestions that teams
were playing harder with a chance
to shine against the marquee team
in the NBA.
Ive been a friend of that bulls-
eye for a long time, James said.
Jones was the one right on tar-
get.
He hit four 3s during a 16-2 run
in the second quarter that gave the
Heat a 49-41 lead at the break. For
most of the first half, the fired-up
Sixers gave Miami a bit of a run. In
Doug Collins first game as coach,
the Sixers led 26-24 until Jones
sparked a 10-0 run with the first 3
of his spurt.
The Heat
kept rolling
from long dis-
tance in the
third quarter.
Jones hit two
around one
from Eddie
House and the
lead was 76-51.

shirting. But he said Gill has done
a good job of always keeping him
ready for game play. Additionally,
offensive coordinator Chuck Long
has been keeping the play calling
in practice in range of Mechams
repertoire.
Mechams two years of junior
college experience in his home
state of Utah give Gill confidence
in Mechams ability to weather
the pressure of starting a Big 12
game on the road. As a sophomore
at Snow Junior College, Mecham
threw for 3,091 yards, 40 touch-
downs, and only 11 interceptions.
When Mecham committed to
the University of Kansas, he knew
there were two younger quarter-
backs already ahead of him on the
depth chart.
I knew that I wanted a fresh
start, Mecham said. With the
new coaching staff, I knew Id have
a chance to just come compete and
try to help a team win.
Mecham didnt think it mat-
tered that his first chance at start-
ing is going to be an away game.
He was adamant that an opportu-
nity is an opportunity, no matter
where it is Ames, Iowa, or at
home in Lawrence.
Despite this week being the first
time he is preparing for a Division
I Big 12 game, the weight on his
shoulders is not only bringing
more energy to practices, but is
improving his life at home.
Ive been getting a lot of reps,
so Ive been sleeping pretty good,
Mecham said.

OKLAHOMA CITY Kevin
Durant scored 30 points, Russell
Westbrook added 28 points and
10 rebounds and the Oklahoma
City Thunder beat the new-
look Chicago Bulls 106-95 on
Wednesday night in the season
opener for both teams.
Durant and Westbrook each
powered down two-handed dunks
during a late 11-0 surge that put
the game away. Neither team had
led by more than eight before
Oklahoma City started pulling
away in the final 3 minutes.
Westbrook raced down the
court for his slam after Serge
Ibaka swatted away Derrick Roses
shot, then turned it into a three-
point play. The next trip down
the court, Durant blew by Luol
Deng for his own jam. Jeff Greens
3-pointer from the right corner
made it 104-91 with 89 seconds
left.
Rose scored 28 points to lead
the Bulls in Tom Thibodeauxs
debut as head coach. He had
only four points in the final 21
minutes, his hot start cooled off
by foul trouble.
Free agent acquisition Carlos
Boozer sported a cast on his
broken right hand, but the rest of
the Bulls overhauled roster kept it
close throughout against reigning
scoring champion Durant and
the rest of the Thunder. Chicago
brought in eight new players after
last seasons trip to the playoffs,
while Daequan Cook was the only
newcomer to get on the floor for
Oklahoma City.
The Thunder got a brief scare
at the end of the third quarter
when Durant fell hard on his
rear end after being called for
charging into Chicagos Ronnie
Brewer. He stayed down for a few
moments before hobbling off the
court. Trainers stretched his legs
during the break between the
quarters and then had him sit on
an ice pack. Durant walked to the
scorers table to check into the
game with only 3 minutes elapsed
in the fourth quarter.
It wasnt long before he got
fouled on the fast break and
hit a pair of free throws to put
Oklahoma City up 88-87, and the
Thunder wouldnt trail again.
Rose answered Durants jumper
to get Chicago within 93-91 with
3:26 remaining, but Oklahoma
City closed it out from there.
Jeff Green added 21 points and
Eric Maynor scored 10 on a perfect
shooting night 3 for 3 from the
field and 4 for 4 on free throws.
Joakim Noah had 19 points and
18 rebounds, Taj Gibson added 16
points and 11 rebounds and Deng
scored 13 for Chicago.
Rose got the Bulls out to a hot
start, hitting consecutive reverse
layups in the midst of five made
shots in a row, before heading to
the bench with two first-quarter
fouls. Oklahoma City then fired
off a 13-4 run that featured dunks
by Westbrook, Ibaka and Durant
to finish the first quarter up by
five.
When Rose returned, he
immediately started digging the
Bulls out of an eight-point hole and
put them back ahead 46-45 with a
pair of free throws he earned by
getting fouled on another reverse
layup try.
The Thunder led 59-54 at
halftime after Green scored 10
points in the final 2:38 before the
break, but then gave up an 8-0 run
to start the third quarter.

Durant, Thunder topple the Bulls

Kevin Durant scored 30 points in a win over the Chicago Bulls. Durant and Russell Westbrook made a showwith an 11-0 run at the end of the game.

Nuggets coach
returns to bench
ASSOCIATED PRESS
DENVER Carmelo Anthony
scored 23 points, Arron Afflalo
added 22 and the Denver Nuggets
opened the season with a 110-
88 win over the Utah Jazz on
Wednesday night in coach George
Karls return to the bench.
Chauncey Billups chipped in
14 points and eight assists, while
newcomer Shelden Williams
grabbed 16 rebounds.
Deron Williams had 17 points
for the Jazz, who finished 8-0 in
the preseason for the first time in
franchise history.
Anthony, the subject of trade
rumors all summer, and Karl
received the loudest ovations in
pregame introductions.
Karl missed the final two
months of last season after being
diagnosed with throat and neck
cancer. In his absence, the Nuggets
stumbled and were eliminated by
Utah in the first round of the
playoffs.
Before the game, Karl described
his energy for his return as child-
like but said he was hoping that
after the contest things will calm
down and we get back to nor-
mal.
Karl was his calm and com-
posed self on the bench, his team
in no real danger of losing this
contest after jumping out to a
27-point lead early in the third
quarter. Billups, who needed
stitches after biting his lip early
in the game, and Nene were given
the fourth quarter off.
Anthony has been mentioned
in trade speculation since he
brushed off a three-year, $65 mil-
lion extension with the Nuggets
in June. He was in his white jer-
sey with powder blue and gold
trim Wednesday, but this possibly
could be his final opener with
the team.
Paul Millsap had 15 points and
Al Jefferson, acquired in a trade
with Minnesota over the summer,
finished with six. Jefferson said
before the game that Utahs pick-
and-roll system fits him perfect
and that he hopes to thrive like
Carlos Boozer and Karl Malone
once did.
Andrei Kirilenko, who was
held to two points, has had his
name surface in rumors as part
of a deal that would land him in
Denver and Anthony with the
New Jersey Nets. Kirilenko is
scheduled to make almost $18
million this season in the final
year of his contract, making him
an obvious trade candidate.
But Kirilenko shrugged off the
speculation at shootaround, say-
ing hes been potentially traded
so many times, but I still wear a
Jazz uniform. Im still here.
Gordon Hayward, who led
Butler to the NCAA finals last
season, made his pro debut in
the first quarter. He finished with
nine points in nearly 21 minutes.
It was a painful first quarter for
the Nuggets. Billups bit through
his lip and trotted off to get stitch-
es and Nene was poked in the eye.
Both werent out for long.
Denver started the game on a
9-0 run and kept up the pressure,
leading 60-40 at halftime.
The Nuggets remain banged-
up in the front court with Kenyon
Martin and Chris Birdman
Andersen recovering from off-
season knee surgeries that are
expected to keep them sidelined
for a while.

CHICAGO Marty Turco

Turco, signed to a one-year

TORONTO Wilson
Chandler scored 22 points, Amare
Stoudemire had 19 points and
10 rebounds and the New York
Knicks beat the Toronto Raptors
98-93 on Wednesday night.
Chandler scored eight points in
the final quarter and Stoudemire
added seven for New York, which
led 74-72 through three.
Andrea Bargnani scored 18
points in the first half but had just
four in the second for Toronto,
which had won eight of its
previous nine home openers. The
Raptors were playing their first
game without star Chris Bosh,
who signed with Miami in the
offseason. He spent seven years in
Toronto.
Raymond Felton scored 15
points, Danilo Gallinari had 12 and
Landry Fields 11 for the Knicks,
with Toney Douglas adding 10.
Torontos Reggie Evans had
16 rebounds but the Knicks
outrebounded the Raptors 49-45.
Barbosa made a 3-pointer at
10:48 of the fourth, giving Toronto
a 77-76 lead, its first since the
second quarter. New York
reclaimed the lead before Torontos
David Andersen tied it with a
3-point play. Chandler scored on
the next two possessions to give
the Knicks a four-point edge, and
New York never trailed again.
Jack made two free throws, then
added a layup with one minute
left, cutting it to 96-93. Kleizas
3-pointer rimmed out on the next
possession and, after a New York
miss, Barbosa airballed a 3 from
the corner, giving the Knicks the
ball with three seconds remaining.
Felton was fouled and iced it with
a pair from the line.
Toronto trailed by 16 points
early in the second but cut the
deficit to one, 44-33, with an 11-0
run capped by a 3-point play by
Kleiza with 3:52 left. The Knicks
held firm and led 51-47 at the
break.
Felton scored seven points in
the third as New York carried a
two-point edge into the fourth.

Morrow hit a go-ahead 3-pointer
with 26 seconds to play and the
New Jersey Nets gave Russian
billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov a
win in his first game as their
owner with a 101-98 victory
over the Detroit Pistons on
Wednesday night.
The Nets outscored the
Pistons 13-3 in the final 1:40 to
give Avery Johnson a win in his
first game as coach coming
much quicker than last season,
when they set an NBA record by
losing their first 18 games.
Brook Lopez led the Nets with
25 points and nine rebounds,
and Devin Harris added 22
points and nine assists. Morrow,
who was signed a free agent in
the offseason, added 13 points
and Jordan Farmar and Terrence
Williams each had 10.
Tayshaun Prince, Rodney
Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva
had 14 points
apiece for the
Pistons, who
had seven
players in
double figures
in the Nets
first regular-
season game at
the Prudential
Center.
The Pistons had two chances
to tie in the closing seconds.
Villanueva missed a 3-pointer
with 2 seconds to go and Stuckey
missed a desperation heave from
the corner at the buzzer after
Williams missed two free throws
at the other end.
The Nets, who won a fran-
chise-low 12 games last season,
seemed headed for another
opening-night loss when Richard
Hamilton hit a 3-pointer from
the left corner with 1:40 remain-
ing for a 95-88 lead.
Farmar cut the gap to 95-91
with a 3-pointer from the left
wing with 1:31 to play, then
stripped Ben Gordon on the
other end. Harris created con-
tact with Gordon at the other
end and converted a three-point
play with 57 seconds left to cut
the lead to 95-94.
After Stuckey missed a shot
under pressure from Farmar,
Morrow put the Nets ahead
97-95 after Harris nearly lost the
ball and flipped it back to him.
Villanueva missed a 3-pointer
on the Pistons next possession
with 18 seconds to go and Harris
pushed the lead to 99-95 with
two free throws with 16 seconds
left.
Villanueva cut the deficit to a
point with a 3-pointer with 14
seconds to go but Farmar made
two free throws for the Nets
final points a second later.
Down 70-67 at the start of
the fourth quarter, the Pistons
outscored New Jersey 20-7 in the
opening six-
plus minutes
to take an
87-77 lead.
G o r d o n
was the cata-
lyst, hitting
a jumper,
a 3-pointer
and set-
ting up Will
Bynum for a three-point play on
a fast break in the opening two
minutes.
Gordon had eight points in
the spurt and Jason Maxiell
added five.
The Nets, who have 11 new
players on their roster, rallied
from a 10-point deficit early in
the third quarter behind two of
the four leftovers from last year
Lopez and Harris. They com-
bined to score 15 of 17 points
in a 17-6 spurt that gave them a
62-61 lead.
