For some students, Monday mornings
are reserved for getting every last minute of
sleep possible to recover from the weekend.
However, for a select few, sleep is sacrificed
for a 7 a.m. yoga class.
The sunrise filtering into the darkened
room creates a serene atmosphere. The
instructor, Kimberly Warne, emphasizes
balance and breathing while her seven stu-
dents on yoga mats move through poses
that highlight the beauty and shape of the
human body.
“It’s a really good stress release, and it’s
a really good way to get in tune with your
body,” Warne, a senior from Rochester,
Minn., said. “A lot of us go through the day
and we don’t realize that we’re not taking
full advantage of our breath, of our move-
ments and that hinders us and makes us
have back pain and shoulder pain, and we
get stressed out. It’s really nice to come here
and remember what your body is supposed
to be used for.”
Warne has been teaching yoga since she
became certified during her freshman year.
Introduced to it as a dancer, she has been
doing yoga in her spare time since she was
10.
“Yoga—when I do it myself—is very per-
sonal, kind of like a relationship that helps
me work through things,” she said. “As far
as teaching, I like to share that relationship
with students and make them feel comfort-
able and appreciative of their bodies.”
Although it’s not a vigorous activity,
yoga can have some serious health ben-
efits. Recently, doctors at the University of
Kansas Hospital have found that in addition
to reducing risk factors for heart disease,
yoga can improve symptoms of atrial fibril-
lation, a heart rhythm disorder that can
cause anxiety and depression.
According to a press release by the hospi-
tal, the participants, all beginners, engaged
in three 45-minute yoga sessions per week
and were encouraged to practice daily at
home. The results revealed improvements
in a number of episodes of irregular heart
beat and overall quality of life.
The stress that the college experience
puts on students can have adverse effects.
Brittany Brannon, a first-year master’s stu-
dent from Atwater, Ohio, started yoga this
semester to regain strength and flexibility
due to a back injury. She believes yoga can
combat that stress.
“I think we get so caught up in the things
that we have to do,” she said. “It’s nice to
have a place to come and sort of let every-
thing go, and I think that helps you physi-
cally to rejuvenate.”
With the variety of yoga classes offered
through KU Fit, there are options for begin-
ners and advanced students alike. KU Fit
allows students to participate in a variety
of fitness classes for $50 a semester at the
Ambler Student Recreation Fitness Center.
For Rachel Bloom, a third-year Ph.D. stu-
dent from Wheaton, Ill., yoga has become
part of her weekly routine.
“I like that it’s a bit of strength train-
ing, but it works with your own body,” she
said. “It kind of compliments other ways of
working out in a way that’s also calming and
relaxing, and it feels like it stretches me in
ways I don’t get to do throughout the day.”
Brian Lamoreux, a junior from Baldwin
City, believes yoga can be mentally refresh-
ing and physically increase energy.
“It clears your mind . . . it also makes you
feel stronger and more flexible,” he said.
“It’s a good feeling for the body. Walking
around, you don’t feel as sluggish; you feel
more alert, body and mind.”
Aside from the physical and mental ben-
efits, the personal element of yoga can be
just as rewarding for students.
“It’s not as competitive,” Lamoreux said.
“It’s more about being yourself and being
happy with yourself.”
“It’s just a really good way to learn about
your body,” Warne said. “As college stu-
dents, we are trying to learn who we are. I
think yoga can help with that.”

Senate in opposition
of concealed carry
A ribbon-cutting ceremony
took place in honor of the
newly-renovated Kansas Union
Ballroom last night.
Last renovated more than 25
years ago, the Ballroom now
features a new ceiling, sound
system, a two-story backdrop be-
hind the stage, energy efcient
lighting and a new hardwood
foor.
Members of Student Senate
were all given a pair of scissors
to each cut a part of the ribbon.
The scissors were then donated
to the Center for Community
Outreach’s school supply drive.
Funds for the Ballroom
renovations came from student
fees. Alek Joyce, Student Senate
outreach director, said that KU
Memorial Unions chose to have
the ceremony before a Student
Senate meeting because they are
in charge of student funds.
Student Senate convened for
the frst time this semester. It
passed a resolution to oppose
concealed carry on campus.
This resolution is in alignment
with the other Kansas Board of
Regents universities. Student
Body President Hannah Bolton,
Student Body Vice President
Brandon Woodard and Student
Senate government relations
director Zach George authored
the bill. Copies of the resolution
will be sent to Governor Sam
Brownback and the other Kansas
state senators.

Online lectures make learning more accessible
eDUCAtion
StAte
Last month, Kansas courts ruled
that state funding for public edu-
cation is “unconstitutionally low.”
The judges called for base aid to
be raised to $4,492 annually for
each of the state’s approximately
600,000 K-12 students, up from
2013’s previously approved budget
of $3,838 per student. Kansas sena-
tors have since challenged the rul-
ing by proposing a constitutional
amendment that would diminish
the court’s ability to devote funds.
“The government seems to be
wanting to shift away towards more
local funding and less from the
state,” said Education Leadership
and Policy Studies Professor John
Rury.
Rury believes that allowing
school districts to raise more of
their funds through local taxes
would create inequality between
wealthy districts and poorer dis-
tricts. As Kansas law stands, school
districts can raise up to 25 per-
cent of their total budgets through
local taxes. Poorer districts like in
Kansas City, Kan. don’t have the tax
base to support that option.
Sometimes, the inequality
between schools is more compli-
cated than just being in a wealthier
or poorer district. Because funds
are distributed on a per-student
basis, larger districts from more
populated areas are able to spend
their funds more efficiently than
districts in rural areas. Every dis-
trict has overhead costs of main-
taining buildings, employing a
superintendent and district staff.
On top of that, each school needs
at least one teacher for each subject
regardless of how large or small the
school’s graduating class is.
One obvious way to make edu-
cation funding more efficient, Rury
says, is to consolidate the districts.
Schools in rural areas would be
joined together, meaning that stu-
dents would have to drive even
further for school, although that
school would be arguably better
funded.
“That would be politically
unpopular, to say the least,” Rury
said. “But the state could prob-
ably save several hundred million
dollars.”
Many University students from
rural districts have seen the effect of
funding on their schools. Freshman
Aaron Gunkel, a marketing major,
is from a Spearville, a city with a
population of less than 800.
With a graduating class of only
20 students, Gunkel’s high school
couldn’t offer Advanced Placement
or other college-level classes. To
receive college credit, Gunkel
would drive 20 minutes to a com-
munity college in nearby Dodge
City, with a population of nearly
28,000.
“It’s now just hit me that I haven’t
had much exposure to some of
those courses,” Gunkel said. “I’ve
just had to adapt. I had to teach
myself calculus—other people have
had pre-calc or whatever and I just
kind of had to jump into it.”
Gunkel describes the courses
offered at his high school as very
basic—he didn’t have the option
to take a course like economics
that would have been more spe-
cialized to his academic and career
interests. Because his school didn’t
have enough student athletes to
offer cross-country, tennis, soccer
or other sports; his only extra-cur-
ricular choice was between playing
baseball and running track in the
spring.
Funding education on a per-stu-
dent basis is the national standard.
How to most effectively collect and
distribute funding for Kansas stu-
dents is still up for debate.
“Spending has to be done right,”
Rury said.
Rury points out that most studies
show that the most effective indica-
tor for academic success is the
student’s family history—especially
their parents’ level of education.
He believes that school districts
need to focus most on attracting
good, dedicated teachers and mak-
ing class sizes smaller.
“We’re seeing history in the mak-
ing with this lawsuit and what the
legislature is talking about,” Rury
said. “They seem to be wanting to
find a way around this. The current
administration has a view of auton-
omy, the way taxes work and the
government’s responsibility that
doesn’t see additional spending on
education as a desirable goal.”

Students bored with their class
lecture can now pause, stop or
fast-forward their professor. Tat
is, if their class is fipped, a teach-
ing approach trending in Univer-
sity classrooms, according to Julie
Loats, director of the Center for
Online and Distance Learning.
In a “fipped classroom,” students
are required to watch a video re-
cording of the lecture material be-
fore class. Class time is then used
for students to work problems with
the guidance of the instructor, said
Susan Stagg-Williams, associate
professor of chemical engineering.
“In a science or math based
class, you absolutely need that time
to work problems because that
is going to be a bulk of the test,”
said Katie Schmidt, a sophomore
from Atchison who took Wil-
liams’ fipped entry-level chemical
engineering class this past fall. “It
worked so much better for an ac-
tive learning style than the normal
passive PowerPoint lecture.”
Williams changed her class’ for-
mat two years ago afer seeing 40
percent of her class receive a D, fail,
or drop by the
end of the semes-
ter.
“Most of those
students had
trouble keeping
up with the pace
of the class,” Wil-
iams said. Since
fipping her class,
Williams has
seen that number
fall to around 25
percent as well as improvements in
overall test scores.
Alejandra Rocha, a junior from
Cochabamba, Bolivia, found Wil-
liams’ recorded lectures saved her
preparation time overall. Rocha
found watching the lectures at her
own pace allowed her to focus on
the material she was struggling
with.
“My understanding of the mate-
rial was much improved in having
the possibility to start, stop, rewind,
and forward the lectures to my con-
venience,” Rocha said.
Tis semester,
Mark Mort, as-
sociate professor
of biology, is in-
cluding fipped
class techniques
into his lecture
style for his or-
ganismal biol-
ogy class. While
Mort still deliv-
ers part of the
lesson during
class time, he gives them an outline
of how the lecture will proceed.
“Students do not receive copies
of our PowerPoint slides, which in
my opinion is detrimental to learn-
ing because it encourages memori-
zation,” Mort said.
Michael Ahrens, a freshman
from St. Joseph, fnds Mort’s format
requires more efort on his own to
learn the coursework compared to
his other classes, which he prefers.
By using the provided lecture out-
line, Ahrens said he has more time
to listen instead of constantly writ-
ing down notes.
“You can think about the mate-
rial more, which helps you retain
and understand what’s going on,”
Ahrens said.
While Qi Chen, a junior from
Overland Park, appreciates the
fexibility of a fipped class, he ac-
knowledges the method is no sub-
stitute for efective teaching.
“Many instructors may be tempt-
ed to simply add the video lectures
on top of their existing course
demands,” Chen said. “My sanity
would not survive.”

A
bandon all hope ye who
enter here, you may find
this column offensive.
Just kidding. You probably
won’t. Unless you take music too
seriously, which seems to happen
more often than not.
Recently, my friend asked
me to listen to her new favorite
band. I told her I didn’t like it,
and her response was “but the
lyrics are so good!”
Well, lyrics don’t mean any-
thing if the sound they are
attached to totally sucks.
When it comes to music,
people seem to put a lot of stock
into how meaningful the lyrics
are. That makes sense; music is
the most common use of poetry
in today’s culture. But it’s also
obvious that a lot of artists aren’t
really trying when it comes to
lyrics (see: pop music). So when
I see people get angry if a friend
thinks a particular song is good
because the lyrics lack depth, I’m
not surprised.
But I disagree with that senti-
ment. Music isn’t about lyrics. It’s
all about sound.
Music allows the listener
to disappear. If you see me on
campus, you’ll notice I have my
headphones in at all times to
let the music wash over my life
like a tsunami in attempt to rid
myself from the monotonous
grind of my last semester of col-
lege. I truly do “disappear here”
when I press play.
In the moneymaking world,
music’s true role in society is
to entertain at all costs, and to
create as much revenue as pos-
sible. But today, music doesn’t
make as much money as it used
to because of the Internet and
downloading. Thus we have
many pop artists creating music
that focuses on sounds that sell
(see: dubstep) instead of pushing
the artistic limits and risking the
chances of failure. So lyrics take a
hit. They just aren’t as important.
Don’t believe me? Take
Nirvana for instance. The
Godfather of Grunge, Kurt
Cobain, sang lyrics many listen-
ers could not understand—so
much so that music comedian
Weird Al Yankovic made fun
of him for it in his parody of
“Smells Like Teens Spirit.” The
point is, Cobain sang his lyrics
to sound its best with the music,
rather than making sure the lis-
tener actually understood what
he was saying. The meaning
came after the sound. It was left
to the listener to decipher.
So when I ask someone, “Do
you like Huey Lewis and the
News?” I don’t expect said per-
son to tell me the lyrics to “Hip
to be Square” are a reference
the massive conformity move-
ment of the ‘80s that Huey Lewis
seems to believe existed. Instead
I expect them to say, “Yeah, it’s
pretty catchy!”
Don’t get me wrong, I respect
and love songs with lyrics that
have meaning, depth and a true
message. But you would never
listen to a song that had all those
things in its lyrics but then didn’t
sound attractive to your ear. You
only notice the lyrics after you’ve
already decided the song sounds
good.
Lyrics are important, but they
come second to sound. And that
will always be true.
You may disagree with that,
but if you ask my punk-rock side,
I’d tell you to deal with it. Rock
and roll.

I
s gender equity something we
can safely assume exists? Or
is it something we must vigi-
lantly seek until reached?
If you’re the University, the
former seems to be the modus
operandi. Why? Because despite
an underrepresented faculty in
terms of gender, the University is
silent on gender equity in its mis-
sion statement.
As the University seeks to
transform itself through “Bold
Aspirations,” I suggest a more
mild transformation: a com-
mitment to gender equality and
racial equality.
Albeit a token action, I would
like to see the University first
make a declarative commitment
in addressing these issues in its
mission statement.
Last week, I happened to read
the statement, which articulates
the University’s commitment to
instruction, research, service,
international dimension and
values.
The first sentence of the mis-
sion statement reads “The uni-
versity is committed to offering
the highest quality undergradu-
ate, graduate, and professional
programs, comparable to the
best obtainable anywhere in the
nation.”
And under the headline
of “service,” it declares, “The
University first serves Kansas,
then the nation and the world
through research, teaching, and
the preservation and dissemina-
tion of knowledge.”
Throughout the document,
there is no explicit or implicit
commitment to gender equity.
The closest the document comes
to equity is a reference to equal-
ity that reads, “The University is
committed to excellence. It fos-
ters a multicultural environment
in which the dignity and rights of
the individual are respected.” The
words “foster” and “respect” don’t
equate to “promote” or “insure.”
These words merely maintain the
status quo, rather than transform
it. If instruction and commitment
to the state (which, oh by the way,
is 50 percent female) are priori-
ties, why is this not reflected by
the University’s faculty?
We all know the University
is a research I institution. That’s
why some on faculty can mail
it in when it comes to lecturing
and teaching; they’re here for
research.
According to the Office of
Institutional Research and
Planning, nearly 60 percent of
the faculty on the Lawrence cam-
pus is male. This is by no means
equal, but it probably doesn’t
raise too many alarms. In com-
parison to students, the incoming
freshmen in 2011 consisted of 47
percent males.
The issues of equity arise in
the upper echelons of faculty:
Females account for 22 percent
of full-professor positions, 39
percent of associate-professor
position, 42 percent of assistant-
professor positions and 57 per-
cent of lecturers.
Equity is inversely related to
the level of faculty position: the
higher the position, the lower the
equity; the lower the position; the
higher the equity.
Racial equality, an idea
ambiguously articulated in the
University’s mission, fares even
worse than gender equity. Eighty-
one percent of the University’s
faculty is white, 3.2 percent is
black, 3.2 percent is Hispanic and
7.6 percent is Asian.
I convey no alarmist tone, just
the fact that we can’t walk around
campus and think we have
achieved gender equity and racial
equality. These are goals we must
actively pursue.
Is the University actively purs-
ing a more equitable and equal
faculty? I don’t know. It would
help if such a commitment was
expressed in the University’s mis-
sion.
I’m not here, nor educated
enough, to say we have a prob-
lem, but it’s safe to say we have
more work to do. While we seek
“bold aspirations” to make our
University better academically,
why not also seek rather basic
aspirations: gender equity and
racial equality?
I think the first step would be
to articulate commitment from
the University’s where it matters
most: its mission statement.

ttention governments
everywhere: Please stop
using technology to spy
on us. Seriously, get your dirty
hands off of my phone. Just back
off.
I’m OK with the federal gov-
ernment wiretapping—with a
warrant—a known criminal to
stop a crime spree, but the gov-
ernment’s been pushing things
way too far, with technology at
least. As my prime example, I’d
like to introduce the Department
of Defense’s shiny new toy: the
Hummingbird.
The Hummingbird is a new
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)
about to join the military’s fleet.
While UAVs are nothing new—
I’ll get to that in a minute—the
Hummingbird has a very special
camera that comes in it. The
camera, named Argus, can shoot
1.8 gigapixels (1.8 billion pixels)
of continuous footage.
For perspective’s sake, from
20,000 feet in the air, Argus can
zoom in enough for you to spot
the color of a 6-inch long object.
What scares me the most is
how it’s actually a video camera.
Combined with some clever
program, Argus automatically
registers and categorizes every
moving object in a 25-square-
mile area.
The government says the
Hummingbird and Argus are
going to be used in Iraq and
Afghanistan, and I believe them.
But it only took six years for the
first generation of military UAVs
to be used domestically, by pri-
vate companies and the military,
smack dab in the middle of the
good old U.S. According to the
Department of Defense, there
are drones flying as close to us as
Kansas State University.
Most people could argue that
the drones don’t pose any major
threats to citizens, or they’d help
catch criminals. But even the U.S.
Congress is afraid of the poten-
tial these drones have to become:
not just eyes in the sky, but even
militarized vehicles watching
from above. If the same people
who let the FBI collect 100 bil-
lion of citizen’s private emails a
day are afraid, then you should
be, too.
Speaking of FBI collecting
private emails, William Binney,
a former coder for the National
Security Agency, decided that he
wanted to talk about how several
government entities are violating
your electronic privacy.
According to Binney, the
FBI has been recording emails,
searches, and phone calls, and
has been generating a giant social
network map of every person
living in the U.S., seeing which
people communicate with each
other. They have around 10
trillion files of personal data in
store.
If you haven’t committed any
crime, the feds don’t trash your
data, they just dump it in a giant
storage facility in case you ever
do. They’ve almost run out of
room apparently, because they’re
building a new facility that can
hold 5 zettabytes of data, about 5
billion terabytes, which is quite a
few terabytes.
I haven’t told you all of this to
make you scared or paranoid. I
told you so you would get angry
at the fact other people are look-
ing at your personal lives so
you’re angry enough to go pro-
test in front of the U.S. Capitol
or at least angry enough to email
a senator, or even Governor
Brownback. Just do something
about it, OK?

chemical engineering from Fairway.

I
f there’s one thing Steven
Soderbergh enjoys more than his
star-studded ensemble casts and
the burnished glow of his beloved
RED camera, it’s threatening to retire
from filmmaking.
Since the release of his 2011 plague
procedural “Contagion,” the director
of “Traffic” and the “Ocean’s Eleven”
series has vowed to abandon his craft
on several occasions, each time cit-
ing the difficulties of financing origi-
nal projects in Hollywood and the
creative malaise of the film industry
in general, which he sees as an infe-
rior animal compared to long-form
televised narratives like “Breaking
Bad” and David Fincher’s Netflix-
only political potboiler “House of
Cards.”
I personally hope he never makes
good on his threat, because “Side
Effects,” Soderbergh’s newest and
purportedly final big screen project,
is also this year’s first solid argument
against the inferiority of mainstream
cinema. Here, at long last, is a quality
motion picture, a clinically observed,
morally dubious psychodrama that
piles on the twists without pulling
any dramatic punches. It continues
Channing Tatum’s post-“21 Jump
Street” ascension into the realm
of credible acting while allowing
Rooney Mara (Fincher’s “The Girl
With the Dragon Tattoo”) room to
develop as a character far removed
from the glowering glamour of
Lisbeth Salander.
Scott Z. Burns’s screenplay, a
thematic fusion of Hitchcock and
“Repulsion”-era Polanski, revolves
around Emily (Mara), a timid, emo-
tionally frail woman struggling to
reconnect with her husband Martin
(Tatum), a Wall Street wunderkind
turned professional pariah following
a four-year stint in prison for insider
trading.
After a series of self-destructive
fantasies lead to a very real car crash,
Emily starts seeing Dr. Banks (Jude
Law), a prominent big city psychia-
trist who, after realizing the cash-
strapped woman won’t be able to
afford his hourly fee, offers to treat
her with Ablixa, a newly produced,
largely untested antidepressant the
good doctor is being paid to pre-
scribe. Because we wouldn’t have a
movie otherwise, Emily agrees and
all hell gradually breaks loose.
The story I’ve just described may
seem familiar, even hackneyed in
its Big Pharma-baiting premise, but
please understand I’m only skim-
ming the surface of a fluid laby-
rinth churning with deeper currents
of lust, treachery and the alarming
notion that when it comes to murder,
pre-medicated can pass for premedi-
tated. To go into further detail would
be a great disservice to the viewer,
so I’ll limit myself to compliment-
ing the performers and Soderbergh’s
polished, economical direction.
Jude Law, who suffered a bout
of overexposure after appearing in
seemingly every movie circa 2004,
has recovered admirably and now
stands as one of my favorite work-
ing actors. His Dr. Banks is a study
in barely concealed misanthropy, a
smirking elitist disguised as a genial
sympathizer. Then, with the char-
acter’s every hypocrisy seemingly
exposed, another layer is revealed,
throwing the audience through the
first of many dizzying ethical loops.
His scenes with Catherine Zeta-
Jones, playing Emily’s slinky ex-
shrink, are especially memorable.
Another performance of note
comes from Ann Dowd, who wowed
critics last year as the brainwashed
fast food manager in “Compliance.”
Here she plays Martin’s mother, a
fierce protector who refuses to let
her daughter-in-law’s deteriorating
mental health stand in the way of her
little boy’s happiness. Her final scene
with Emily is a tempered crescendo,
teeming with equal parts rage and
regret. One of the film’s few flaws
is not finding more screentime for
this extraordinary character actress,
a Soderbergh veteran who appeared
alongside Matt Damon in 2009’s
corporate espionage comedy “The
Informant.”
Soderbergh frames every shot in
the movie with a methodical eye for
harnessing atmosphere, using it as a
whetstone for sharpening suspense.
If “Side Effects” ends up being the
director’s swan song, it’s a fitting
farewell, a celebration of his precise,
even-keel approach to so many dif-
ferent genres.
All speculation aside, though,
I doubt we’ve seen the last of
Soderbergh. After all, in the two
years since announcing his suppos-
edly imminent retirement, the man
shot and released no less than four
films, including “Haywire” and the
extremely profitable “Magic Mike.”
Filmmaking, like any powerful drug,
can be a difficult habit to break.

Brooklyn hip-hop duo The
Underachievers has been riding
the wave of its internet hype for the
better half of a year by uploading
music videos for tracks like “Gold
Soul Theory.” Its material shows
early signs of a classic. “Indigoism”
was finally released on Jan. 21
via Brainfeeder, a record label
founded by Flying Lotus, who has
been doing his share of feeding
their hype through Twitter and his
record contract and by offering
The Underachievers a record deal.
Being part of the whole Beast
Coast movement, with the likes
of Flatbush Zombies, Joey Bada$$
and all of Pro Era, its music shares
a similar identity. One of the
highlights of the mixtape, “Herb
Shuttles,” really sums up the atti-
tude of the tape, in terms of being
lyrically dense and providing
soulful instrumentals: “This that
indigo anthem / Fly like passports,
no randoms / Searchin’ for that
purpose, merged with / A little
bit of piece of mind on this earth,
b****.”
Other hyped single include
“T.A.D.E.D.”, “So Devilish”, “The
Mahdi” and they each have that
nostalgic east coast vibe paired
with great, modern production.
Aside from the expected great
tracks, some of the other mate-
rial seems to be really lacking. At
times, it feels rehashed or from
other solid material, almost like a
move to save certain material for a
formal debut.
Either way, after months of
anticipation, it is slightly disap-
pointing.
That being said, the 17-track
mixtape has a few new gems. Final
track “Play Your Part” showcases
Issa Dash and AK’s clean flow over
an even smoother beat and open-
ing track “Philanthropist” really
prepares the listener for what’s to
come.

With many students relying on
stores on Massachusetts Street for
clothing, we often find ourselves
wearing the same stuff as everyone
else. The closest malls are a good
distance away, and sometimes find-
ing things that no one else will have
can be tough. This is where online
shopping saves the day.
Many are wary of what they
believe to be a risky concept, and it
can be. However, it can also be one
of the best ways to buy if you know
the right way to do it.
There are many do’s and don’ts
of online shopping. First and fore-
most, make sure you’re familiar
with the return and shipping poli-
cies of the websites you’re buying
from. Great sites will always have
free shipping, good sites will have
a minimum of $50 or so, and sites
you should stay away from are
those that always charge for ship-
ping. Unless you find something
you absolutely can’t live without,
don’t pay for it to get to you. Also,
many online stores will provide
you with the return label if you
don’t like what you ordered. This is
key. If you’re going to be ordering
online often, you’ve got to accept
that sometimes the item is just not
going to work out. Be sure that you
won’t have to pay the price for that,
and that you’ll be able to return it
hassle free with no charge.
Secondly, the discounts you will
get shopping online are endless.
Be sure to sign up for newsletters
for all your favorite stores. Yes, it
may crowd your inbox, but you’ll
be surprised with how many 20
percent off codes and sales you’ll
be alerted of. It will definitely be
worth the email spam. I also like
to add items to my “wish list” and
keep an eye on them for a few days.
You’ll be surprised to see how often
prices go up and down in a short
amount of time.
Now on to my secret weap-
on: Ebates.com. This site works
with thousands of stores such as
Nordstrom and Nike. By logging
into the site prior to purchas-
ing online, a percentage of your
money will be sent back to you.
The amount is typically small, but
if you’re shopping online often, it
adds up quickly. The site also alerts
you of promo codes and sales, and
when I joined, I was given a $10
gift card to Target. It may sound
unreliable, but the site has worked
wonders for me and my online
shopping addiction.
The best places to find trendy
clothing that you won’t find any-
where near Lawrence are ASOS.
com and Nastygal.com (creepy
name, great clothes). Even stores
that are nearby are good to try
online, too. Many times, plac-
es will offer deals through their
websites but not in their actual
stores. Before you click “check out,”
always be sure that you’ve googled
promo codes as well. Great deals
are everywhere; you’ve just got to
find them.

Movie makeup artist
leaves behind legacy
london — stuart freeborn, a
pioneering movie makeup artist be-
hind creatures such as Yoda and
chewbacca in the “star Wars” flms,
has died. he was 98.
lucasfilm confrmed Wednes-
day that freeborn had passed away,
“leaving a legacy of unforgettable
contributions.”
“star Wars” director George lucas
said in a statement that freeborn was
“already a makeup legend” when he
started working on “star Wars.”
“he brought with him not only de-
cades of experience, but boundless
creative energy,” lucas said. “his
artistry and craftsmanship will live
on forever in the characters he cre-
ated. his “star Wars” creatures may
be reinterpreted in new forms by new
generations, but at their heart, they
continue to be what stuart created for
the original flms.”
he will likely be best remembered
for his work on “star Wars”—creat-
ing characters such as the 7-foot-tall
wookie chewbacca and the slug-like
Jabba the hutt.
lucasfilm said that irvin kersh-
ner, who directed “The Empire strikes
Back,” would “note that freeborn
quite literally put himself into Yoda,
as the Jedi master’s inquisitive and
mischievous elfn features had more
than a passing resemblance to free-
born himself.” (Yoda’s looks were also
said to be partly inspired by albert
Einstein.)
freeborn recalled being ap-
proached by “this young fellow”
named George lucas, who told him,
“i’ve written a script for a flm called
‘star Wars.’”
“he was so genuine about it, i
thought, well, young as he is, i be-
lieve in him. he’s got something. i’ll
do what i can for him,” freeborn told
the BBc.

K
ansas basketball has many
players vital to its success.
Jeff Withey is the interi-
or protector issuing a Gandalfian
“you shall not pass!” to any player
brave enough to challenge him. Ben
McLemore shows more athleticism
putting on his socks every morn-
ing than you or I could show in
an entire game. Travis Releford is
the lockdown perimeter defender,
notably causing Baylor’s Brady
Heslip and Kansas State’s Rodney
McGruder to form a “Big 12 Guards
Against Travis Releford” support
group. A poor performance by
Elijah Johnson, as shown in the
Oklahoma State game, can be the
difference between a win or a loss.
However, one player who does not
get as much attention, yet will be
almost as vital to our success going
forward, is freshman forward Perry
Ellis.
Bill Self ’s offenses have always
thrived when he has a post player
who can attract attention and create
his own shot. Thomas Robinson,
often through sheer muscle rather
than precise post moves, was a focal
point of the Jayhawk offense last
year. When the ball did not see his
capable hands enough, Self let the
other players know.
Robinson was also able to draw
double teams. The ability to draw
double teams is almost as important
as the ability to score when guarded
one-on-one. Robinson would either
utilize his chemistry with Withey to
get Withey an open shot under the
basket or pass the ball back to the
perimeter. The defense would then
have to shift, and as long as Kansas’
ball movement was quicker than the
defensive shifts, a player would get
an open shot.
This offense was highly effec-
tive using the Morris twins to this
effect, as that was how Tyrel Reed
and Brady Morningstar got many
of their baskets. Same with Darrell
Arthur feeding the guards on the
national championship team.
Right now the Jayhawks don’t
have a player in the post who com-
mands defensive attention which
means the perimeter is often clogged.
Withey, while polished defensively,
is still learning offensively. Often,
his post moves resemble the kind
of dance moves you would see at a
high school prom. Kevin Young, the
undisputed Energizer Bunny of the
team, doesn’t provide much offense
other than lay-ups and dunks,
though there is potential for more.
Ellis could be that player who
provides the scoring punch the
Jayhawks need in the post. Although
there is no statistic regarding shots
that rim in-and-out per 40 min-
utes Ellis, must be near the lead.
That could change with a little more
strength, giving him more physical
control over where he places the
ball, and a little more confidence,
giving him more mental control.
He needs to develop a fade-away
over either shoulder and a 15-foot
jumper, but Ellis has more natural
scoring ability than any other post
on this team, and it’s not really that
close. If he can become a scorer and
attract double teams then Self ’s cur-
rently struggling offense could turn
the corner.
It’s a lot of pressure to put on a
freshman, but Ellis knew the stakes
when he came to Kansas. The team
needs him for its offense to reach
the next level.

senior guard angel Goodrich drives the ball during the frst half of the match against Baylor at allen Fieldhouse sunday
afternoon Jan 13. Goodrich had 16 total points with seven assists. Kansas was defeated by the lady Bears 60-82.
Facing the No.1 team in the
nation as an underdog always has
the possibility of getting ugly.
And ugly it got for the Kansas
women’s basketball team.
Traveling to Waco, Texas, the
Jayhawks faced off against the No.1
Baylor Bears in a rematch of the
82-60 victory by the Lady Bears on
Jan. 13. And on Wednesday night
the Lady Bears weren’t looking past
the Jayhawks in the midseason Big
12 match up.
The Lady Bears cruised to victory
with a 86-45 win over the Jayhawks.
The 41-point loss is the fourth-
largest in school history for the
Jayhawks.
Baylor didn’t have any trouble
getting its shots whether it was in
the paint or behind the arc. On the
game, the Lady Bears shot 56.7 per-
cent from the field which is the best
performance thus far by a Jayhawk
opponent.
On the flip-side the Jayhawks had
a rough time. Sophomore guard
CeCe Harper led the way with 11
points on just 4-of-15 shooting. The
only other Jayhawk to score in dou-
ble figures was sophomore forward
Asia Boyd, who scored 10 points off
the bench.
Kansas coach Bonnie Henrickson
said the team had trouble with the
pressure of Baylor.
“We weren’t as aggressive,”
Henrickson said. “We got a little
anxious and honestly we didn’t
shoot the ball well. We got some
good looks that we knocked down
and then some were rushed and
that’s exactly what they do.”
The Jayhawks shot a season-
low 27.7 percent from the field.
The starting five of Harper, Angel
Goodrich, Monica Engelman,
Chelsea Gardner and Carolyn Davis
shot 13-of-45 from field for just 30
points.
Goodrich, a senior guard, went
just 1-of-9 from the floor and had
six turnovers to four assists. Davis, a
senior forward, had trouble down-
low as she went just 3-of-12 from
the field for six points and added
eight rebounds. Davis failed to
reach double-figures for the first
time in the past 12 games.
Lady Bears’ senior center and
reigning national player of the year
Brittney Griner had a game-high
26 points on 11-of-20 shooting. She
also added 13 rebounds, four assists
and three blocks.
Griner’s teammates Brooklyn
Pope, Kimetria Hayden and Odyssey
Sims all scored in double-figures as
they went 17-of-26 from the floor.
The loss by the Jayhawks gave the
Lady Bears their 19th-straight vic-
tory as they improved to 21-1 on the
season. Kansas fell to .500 in Big 12
play and 14-7 on the season.
Not only did the loss drop the
Jayhawks to the .500 mark it also
gave them seven-straight losses in
Waco against the Lady Bears.

Coach Bill self rubs his face in frustration during wednesday, Feb. 6 game against
Texas Christian University at Daniel-meyer Coliseum in Fort worth, TX where Kansas
was defeated 62-55. This is Kansas’ second consecutive loss in the Big 12.
FORT WORTH, Texas —The
Kansas basketball team knows
how to take one loss.
It happens every year. The
Jayhawks drop a game here or
there to one of the other con-
tending teams in their confer-
ence. Maybe even one to a tough
non-conference opponent.
But when the Jayhawks walked
off the court on Wednesday night
after the 62-55 upset victory by
the Horned Frogs, none of the
players knew what to feel.
This was Kansas’ first group of
consecutive losses in 264 games.
That dates back to the 2005-
2006, when most of these players
were still making up the ranks
of their respective high school
teams.
The Horned Frogs came into
the game winless in the confer-
ence and struggling, but in the
end, they controlled the game
from start to finish.
“It was the worst team that
Kansas has ever put on the floor
since Dr. Naismith was there, “
coach Bill Self said.
For Kansas, it came down
to execution on offense with
the guard play struggling once
again.
In the first half, coach Self
threw senior guard Elijah
Johnson, sophomore guard
Naadir Tharpe and even fresh-
man guard Rio Adams at the
point guard during portions of
the first 20 minutes.
What also led to the Jayhawks’
dismay in this game was the
inability to make easy shots
around the basket, missing sev-
eral layups. They finished the
game with a season low-29.5
percent shooting.
In addition, the team went
3-22 from 3-point range, their
worst percentage since the 1988-
89 season when they started
keeping records.
“It was a bad shooting night,
but also, we’re not very tough,”
Self said. “We kind of doubt or
quit being aggressive, and cer-
tainly, there’s a lot of that going
on.”
At this point, Kansas has
become vulnerable after losing
to the worst team in the confer-
ence statistically.
“The reality is we’ve allowed
everybody the opportunity to
believe that they can beat us,” Self
said. “And they should. We’ve
opened up that flood gate.”
One player who continued to
play at a solid level was senior
center Jeff Withey, who did
his best to stay physical on the
block. Withey still managed to
put together a decent night with
12 points, eight rebounds and
three blocks.
“Now we just got to get tough
and go hard in practice and fig-
ure out what’s going wrong and
nip that in the butt,” Withey said.
“We’re still a great team. We still
have a great chance to win the
conference, and hopefully, win
the Tournament, that’s our goal.”
One of the other main con-
tributors on the night for Kansas
was senior forward Kevin Young.
Despite being benched for fresh-
man forward Perry Ellis to start
the game, Young displayed his
normal ability to contribute with
six points and nine rebounds.
Still, Young knows this was
an embrasssing loss for his team
and it’s partly his responsibility
to get back on track so this can
still be a successful season.
“We just need to look in the
mirror, and we need to change,”
he said. “This can’t keep going
on. We all know that. As a senior,
and speaking for the other
seniors, we’re going to do every-
thing to change it.”
There was a lot of embar-
rassment to go around for the
Jayhawks, but losing a game like
this goes deeper than this year’s
team.
Kansas basketball has his-
torically been able to recover
from tough losses and not lose
to teams that will hurt its NCAA
seeding when the committee
looks at them in March.
More than anything, this game
was shameful for Kansas tradi-
tion, for Dr. Naismith, which is
something that cannot be said
very often.
“There’s a lot of great names
that wore this jersey before
us,” Young said, “and to come
out and play like this today,
we embarrassed ourselves and
embarrassed them.”

Lebron makes shooting 92.9 percent look unimpressive
L
ebron James is amazing. He re-
ally is. I mean think about it. Te
guy has won three of the past four
MVPs, he is the reigning Finals MVP, and
he puts up a consistent stat line that looks
like me when I get done playing NBA
2K13. Although some people are afraid
to admit it, he will go down as one of the
best players the league has ever seen. He
recently showed everyone why he seems
to always impress us.
You see, I am a numbers guy. I think
statistics are the best representation of how
a player is able to afect the game. Sort of
like Elijah Johnson’s amazing 1.5:1 assist to
turnover ratio. Did you catch the sarcastic
drif? On Monday night versus the Char-
lotte Bobcats, James scored 31 points and
went an astonishing 13-14 from the feld,
while shooting a career high 92.9 percent.
Like I said, I am a numbers guy. How-
ever, I believe how one obtains their num-
bers truly defnes how good a player really
is. For example, when I saw that James
shot 13-14 for the night, I said to myself,
“Wow! Tat is really impressive.” And
when I saw the highlights on SportsCen-
ter, I said to myself, “Wow! Tat is not im-
pressive.”
Now do not get me wrong, Lebron
James is a great player and there really is
no way of stopping him. But what a box
score does not show is what kind of shots
a player takes. On Monday night’s game,
he only averaged 2.64 feet per shot. He
made nine feld goals that were within
two feet, and the furthest shot he at-
tempted was only fve feet away.
If James would have taken actual
contested jumpers, or maybe even some
three-pointers, then I would have been
fairly impressed with his shooting per-
centage. Even though he still fnished
with a well-rounded game by pulling
down eight rebounds and distributing
eight assists, I am restrained from giving
him the kudos for his accomplishment,
because of his shot selection.
Keep in mind, Lebron James is prob-
ably one of the, if not the, most highly
praised player in the NBA today. So for
ESPN to publicize that this was the great-
est shooting night of his career, his ego
will only go up from here. But is someone
with an ego that high through the roof re-
ally that impressive?

Kansas coach Charlie Weis went
into signing day with 11 guaran-
teed commits and gained 14 more
on Wednesday. Te Jayhawks have
25 signees and one walk-on, giving
them a total of 26 recruits.
Weis will work with his 18 junior
college transfers, and he’s excited
to see the players work together.
With two defensive linemen and
four defensive backs graduating
from the 2012 squad, several start-
ing spots on defense will be up for
grabs. Kansas may see some of its
junior college transfers start and
make an impact right away.
“You could have a whole bunch
of starters coming out of that
group,” Weis said. “I think that so
many of those guys on defense are
going to be playing. Personnel-
wise, the overall on defense is go-
ing to be dramatic. I think it’s go-
ing to be solid for years.”
Among the 26 recruits, defen-
sive lineman Marquel Combs is
the biggest name. Coming out of
Pierce College, Combs is the No.
1 rated junior college prospect in
the country by ESPN. Kansas also
recruited defensive lineman Chris
Martin from City College of San
Francisco. Both Combs and Mar-
tin are tabbed as four-star play-
ers, according to Rivals.com and
ESPN.
Although Weis is thrilled to
have two high-rated players in
Combs and Martin, player rat-
ings are the last thing on his mind.
He’s more eager to see all 26 of his
recruits put on pads and helmets
with a Jayhawk uniform on top.
“Tere’s so many of them,” Weis
said. “It really wouldn’t do justice
to single out anyone. Each and
every one of these kids right here,
I’m happy we have.”
Te fve defensive linemen and
four defensive backs recruited are
all junior college transfers. One
of those includes returning junior
cornerback Dexter McDonald,
who played last year with Butler
Community College. Weis sees
McDonald’s second stint as a Jay-
hawk being a more memorable
one with plenty of opportunities
for him in 2013.
“I think he’s been humbled
some,” Weis said. “He has a greater
appreciation for where the pro-
gram is right now and really be-
lieves that he can contribute both
on and of the feld.”
Weis said with this recruiting
class, it allows the defense to work
with quarter and dime packages
afer being limited last year with
the defensive backs.
Overall, Weis is hopeful that
this recruiting class can improve
the defense and help Kansas move
into the right direction afer win-
ning only one game last season.
Kansas opens up its 15-prac-
tice spring schedule on March 5.
Te annual Spring Game will take
place on April 13.

Jordan Darling is the top rated
Pro-style quarterback in the state
of Kansas. Darling played in four
different high schools in four years
because his mom is in the military.
Despite moving around so much,
Darling is the only quarterback in
high school history to pass for more
than 1,000 yards in three different
states (ohio, texas and Kansas) and
to win in four different states (Mis-
souri, ohio, texas and Kansas).
Kansas offensive line coach tim
Grunhard coached Montell Cozart at
bishop Miege for three years. after
Grunhard’s departure, Cozart played
for Jon Holmes last year. Cozart now
reunites with Grunhard in lawrence.
Cozart, a three-star quarterback, led
bishop Miege to the Class 5a State
Football Championship in 2012. He
threw for 2,759 yards and 25 touch-
downs while rushing for 626 yards
and fve touchdowns during his se-
nior year.
Marquis Jackson will go on medical red-

blocked for an offense that set the
school record with 521 points scored in

Marquel Combs is a four-star prospect
and the top-rated junior college player
in the country. Weis said it is easy to see
why he’s ranked No. 1 because “he just
dominates games.”
Marcus Jenkins-Moore was one of the
frst recruits on board to sign with Kan-
sas. He recorded 29 tackles, 3.5 tackles
for a loss and a sack in eight games his
frst year at Pierce College.
Weis said he was surprised that andrew

First halF
(sCOre aFter Play)
12:42 – Jamari Traylor scores Kansas’ frst points of the game on a short jumper
after TCU held Kansas scoreless for more than seven minutes. (8-2 TCU)

1:19 – Kevin Young makes Kansas’ seventh and fnal free throw of the half, capping
a 7-0 Kansas run, in the most generous sense of the term. (20-13 TCU)

1:09 – nate Butler Lind converts a layup to close out the half’s limited amount of
scoring. (22-13 TCU)

3:36 – Garlon Green appears to travel before making a jumper, but the offcials
instead call a foul on Travis Releford. Green makes the free throw. (49-40 TCU)

0:36 – Elijah Johnson makes his second 3-pointer to briefy close TCU’s lead. Howev-
er, Johnson’s turnover on the previous possession meant it was still a two-possession

Jayhawks’ inability to make baskets leads to blindside loss to Horned Frogs
GeOFFrey caLVerT
gcalvert@kansan.com
It’s hard to understate how hor-
rible Kansas’ first half was Wednesday
night at TCU in its 62-55 loss to the
Horned Frogs.
A Jayhawk guard didn’t make a
field goal the entire first half, and
Kansas only made three shots the
entire half. It’s not that TCU’s defense
was smothering, as Kansas found a
way to get open looks in the first half.
Getting the ball in the basket was
another story.
Kansas didn’t score until freshman
forward Jamari Traylor made a short
jumper with 12:42 left in the first half.
Kansas didn’t score again until 6:06
remained in the half when senior
center Jeff Withey made two free
throws.
Withey also made Kansas’ second
field goal. It didn’t come until 4:29
remained in the half.
So to recap, Kansas started the
game with a 7:18 field goal drought
then followed that up with an 8:13
field goal drought. Senior forward
Kevin Young made Kansas’ final field
goal, a layup, with 3:15 left in the
half.
The Jayhawks made seven free
throws in the first half, leaving them
with 13 total points in the first half.
Since the NCAA began tracking the
stat in 1988-1989, it was Kansas’ few-
est points ever in a half. The second-
worse total was 18 points against Iowa
State in 1999.
Kansas turned the ball over eight
times in the first half. Although the
Horned Frogs only scored seven
points off of the turnovers, the
Jayhawks couldn’t afford to waste that
many possessions with their offense
being so stagnant.
However, the Jayhawks still found
themselves very much in the ball-
game at halftime, because the Horned
Frogs only mustered 22 points. TCU
has struggled scoring all season and
averages only 54.1 points per game.
If it were any other Big 12 team,
the game could have been over by
halftime. The Jayhawks benefitted
from the Horned Frogs’ poor play,
although it still didn’t match Kansas’
debacle.
TCU only made one jumper in the
game’s first six minutes, leaving the
door open for Kansas to take control
of the game. But six of Kansas’ eight
first-half turnovers came in the game’s
first seven minutes before Traylor got
Kansas on the board.
The Jayhawks made their first
three shots of the second half, equal-
ing their first half output less than
four minutes into the second half.
While Kansas scored 42 points in the
second half, the lack of first half pro-
duction doomed them to their first
consecutive losses in 264 games. The
most recent occurrence was Jan. 14
and 16, 2006, when Kansas State and
Missouri beat the Jayhawks.
TCU entered the game with an 0-8
Big 12 record in its first season in the
conference. Of those eight conference
losses, the closest one was a 62-53 loss
to Texas Tech.

Andrew Fitzgerald, forward
The senior
earned his frst
start Monday at
Iowa State and led
the team with 12
points and seven
rebounds. How-
ever, he played
only 18 minutes
because of foul
trouble and eventually fouled out, only
the second Sooner to do so this year. If
he mimics his Monday offensive produc-
tion against Kansas, it could help offset
a possible poor shooting night from one
of the other Oklahoma forwards.
OklahOma
(14-7, 7-1)
starters
Buddy hield, Guard
A little experience has gone a long way for
Hield. The freshman is averaging nearly 10 points
per game in Big 12 play, but it may have come
at the cost of his rebounding. Since grabbing 10
boards against Kansas State on Jan. 19 he hasn’t
been able to grab more than fve.

★★✩✩✩
Steven pledGer, Guard
Considering Oklahoma’s starters each played
about 30 minutes in Lawrence, it’s fair to say the
same recipe will be used in Norman. That formula
also centers on the need for Pledger to produce.
He also hasn’t done much since putting up 20
against Baylor.
★★★✩✩
je’lon hornBeak, Guard
It hasn’t been an easy go for Hornbeak since
scoring just one point against Kansas. He’s seen
his playing time drop below the 20 minute mark
in the last few games and hasn’t done much with
the time he’s had. Five points in three games isn’t
going to help.
★★✩✩✩
amath m’Baye, Forward
M’Baye was the biggest factor last time
around. Twelve points, seven rebounds, a steal
and he was perfect at the line. At 6-foot-9, he
can be disruptive in the paint, but hasn’t put up
notable numbers since scoring 20 against Baylor
last week.
★★★✩✩
romero oSBy, Forward
Last time Oklahoma matched up with Kansas,
Osby wasn’t the biggest factor, but he was cer-
tainly the second biggest. His 12 points and six
rebounds helped keep the Jayhawks from pulling
away, but four fouls hindered his play near the
end of the game.
★★★✩✩
kaNsas
(16-1, 4-0)
starters
elijah johnSon, Guard
At the moment, Elijah Johnson is in a funk, to
the say the least. He’s tried everything to get out of
that funk, but the only way he knows how to get out
of it is to just play. Throughout his career, Johnson
has shown fashes of brilliance including the NCAA
title game run from last season. He’s just not a
true point guard and is being asked to play that
position. Johnson will continue to try hard, but the
more he plays and the less he thinks, the old Elijah
will come back.
★★★✩✩

Ben mClemore, Guard
The man from St. Louis continues to shine even
when he’s not being as aggressive as the coaching
staff would like. However, he’s still on pace to break
Danny Manning’s freshman record of 14.6 ppg.
McLemore is a gifted talent who plays within the
fow of the game. At times, he’s too unselfsh, but
this year, he’s progressively gotten better at fnding
the time to step up when the moment’s right. Look
for another big game from Air McLemore.
★★★★★
traviS releFord, Guard
The ffth-year senior has been steady as they
come for the Jayhawks. He’s a good defender, at-
tacks the rim when necessary and has a solid bas-
ketball IQ that allows him to make big plays for
Kansas. Releford is the senior leader the Jayhawks
will ride throughout the season and rightfully so.
He understands his position on this team and will
do whatever he can to help Kansas make a deep
run in March.
★★★★✩
kevin younG, Forward
You’re always going to get something interest-
ing out of Kevin Young. Whether it’s a steal, a good
set on defense or fnishing on the other end of an
alley-oop, Young is one of those energy guys that
every team loves to have, especially when offen-
sive struggles continue to happen. Young’s not the
most talented player, but he works hard and can
come up big in certain moments. Look for Young to
be an integral role player for this team in Norman.
★★★✩✩
jeFF withey, Center
Withey is on the verge of being remembered
as one of the most prolifc shot blockers in Kan-
sas history. He’s athletic for his size at 7-feet tall
and changes the dynamic of any opponent of the
Jayhawks. Withey continues to get better as each
game passes into the season despite getting
roughed up by some of the big men in the Big 12.
However, Withey will remain a big time contender
for some major national awards down the stretch.

Te Sooners wouldn’t let Kansas
pull away in Lawrence until the f-
nal moments on January, 26th. No
one was expecting the Jayhawks
to roll Oklahoma but it seems OU
may still be exhausted from the
playing in Allen Fieldhouse. Te
Sooners have dropped two of their
last three games and have seen their
production on ofense and defense
fall too.
Will the Sooners’ shooting
show up?
Oklahoma’s top three scorers, Osby,
M’Baye and Pledger, have combined
to shoot less than 40 percent from the
feld in Oklahoma’s past four games.
Those fgures include the Baylor game,
an outlier from the other three games,
when the three combined to shoot 20-31
from the feld. Oklahoma’s other starters
are freshman and don’t have the scoring
touch the Sooners’ top three do. Kansas
leads the nation in opponent feld goal
percentage at 35.4 percent, so Oklaho-
ma’s scorers need to be on for it to have
a shot to take down Kansas.
at a GlaNCe
player tO WatCh
QUestiON mark
Kansas travels to Oklahoma with a
one-game lead in the Big 12 over in-
state rival Kansas State. Coach Bill Self
has said that senior guard Elijah John-
son is his guy and he’s sticking with him.
Until something different happens on
the court, expect Johnson to be running
the point guard position. Ben McLemore
and Jeff Withey are both contenders for
Big 12 Player of the Year, but there’s still
nine games to go before they head to
Kansas City.
Andrew White III, guard
His six points
in one minute
of action raised
eyebrows from
all the Jayhawk
faithful. White is
a talented player
who continues
to get better, but
at the moment
,there’s a log jam at his guard position
(see Travis Releford and Ben McLem-
ore). White will continue to garner more
playing time, and as he showed against
Oklahoma State, can step up late in a
game even if he is coming off the bench
cold.
Will Naadir Tharpe’s roll off
the bench increase?
Bill Self made it clear that Elijah
Johnson will be his starting point guard
going forward. Tharpe is Kansas’ best
handler and may be able to help distrib-
ute the ball and create some more op-
tions for the Jayhawks.

The Sooners score off of second-
chance points. The Jayhawks’ defense
fgures to be good enough to keep any of
the Sooners from dominating offensively
the way Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart
and Markel Brown did last Saturday
against Kansas. But they also must keep
the Sooners from getting second-chance
points from offensive rebounds. Okla-
homa is a better offensive rebounding
team than the Cowboys were. The Soon-
ers could use the same formula Okla-
homa State did to upset Kansas.

The Jayhawks’ show some confdence
in their ball handling. If there’s consis-
tent point guard play from Elijah Johnson
and Naadir Tharpe, then the Jayhawks
will be able to get back on track and
play with much more confdence. It’s not
going to be a perfect ft with Johnson
or Tharpe, but if they can stop turning
the ball over, Kansas will have a much
easier time winning in Norman.

The Kansas swimming and div-
ing team, 5-4 overall and 1-0 in
the Big 12, will compete against
conference rival Iowa State (5-4,
0-0), at home Friday and Saturday.
The two-day dual meet will be the
last meet for both teams before the
Big 12 Championship at the end of
the month.
The teams will compete in the
same events as a regular dual meet,
but the events will be spread over
two days. This format is to help the
teams prepare for the conference
championship, which will be held
over four days. The teams will expe-
rience racing in the evening with a
quick turn around having to swim
again in the morning.
The Jayhawks met the Cyclones
earlier this season in the Kansas
Classic, a swimming-only meet
held in mid-
November. The
Jayhawks fin-
ished in second
place and the
Cyclones fin-
ished fourth out
of six teams.
Kansas had top-
three finishes
in 14 of the 18
events over the course of the three-
day event. Kansas was led by senior
Morgan Sharp, junior Alison Lusk,
freshman Haley Molden and fresh-
man Bryce Hinde. Iowa State was
led by sophomore Amanda Paulson
and freshman Marissa Engel.
This time around, look for Iowa
State sophomore Sarah Deis to have
a strong performance in the freestyle
races and sophomore Dani Harris
to continue her strong finishes in
the backstroke. For Kansas, look for
senior Brooke Brul, junior Alison
Moffit and Molden to turn in strong
races. Also look for senior diver
Christy Cash to continue to have
success off the board. Both teams
hope to use this last meet as a tune-
up for the Big 12 Championship.
“The sport of swimming is a
peaking sport,” Head Coach Clark
Campbell said. “You are trying to
peak for a high performance. For us,
it’s Big 12s at the end of February.
For us to improve right now is
increasing the quality of our train-
ing, meaning more training at race
pace and improving our skills—
starts, turns, finishes, that type of
thing—and that will help us peak.”
Kansas faces Iowa State at 6
p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Saturday
in Robinson Natatorium. Kansas
is coming off of a home loss to
Arkansas and Iowa State is coming
off of wins to Nebraska-Omaha and
Northern Iowa.

The Kansas men and women
track and field squads will take
part in three different meets this
Friday and Saturday, including the
Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville,
Ark., the ISU Classic in Ames,
Iowa, and the Husky Classic in
Seattle, Wash.
“All of our competition is pro-
gressing fast and I think our ath-
letes are really adapting to that,”
said coach Stanley Redwine. “It’s
not just an issue anymore of how
we are performing compared to
last year; it’s how well we’re pro-
gressing compared to our compe-
tition, and I think we’ll continue
to see that.”
The women’s team is having one
of its best weeks in recent memory
after a strong performance at the
Armory Collegiate Invitational
last weekend in New York. On
Tuesday, the United States Track &
Field and Cross Country Coaches
Association (USTFCCCA) ranked
the women the No. 1 team in the
country after spending the first
few weeks of the indoor season at
No. 2.
On Monday, horizontal jump-
er Andrea Geubelle was named
Division I National Athlete of the
Week by the USTFCCCA. On
Wednesday, Geubelle received
yet another award when she was
named Big 12 Female Athlete of
the Week.
Of the women’s team being
ranked No. 1, Redwine said, “The
athletes are definitely excited and
we want to keep that excitement,
but we also need to make them
understand that the target on our
back is even larger. We need to
continue to compete to the best of
our ability and hopefully the rec-
ognition will keep coming.”
On the men’s side, the distance
medley team of Brendan Soucie,
Drew Matthews, Nick Seckfort and
Josh Munsch ran a season-best
time of 9:46.92 in New York, rank-
ing them 11th in the nation. Kyle
Clemons now holds the school
record in the 500-meters after his
time of 1:01.32, and pole vaulter
Alex Bishop is ranked in the top-16
in the nation.
With the Big 12 Indoor
Championships just two weeks
away and the NCAA Indoor
Championships just a month away,
both the men and women’s teams
will look to improve this weekend
in its last weekend of competition
before those two meets.
“We’re looking for everyone to
keep getting better as the season
progresses,” Redwine said. “As we
train harder, the performances
have continued to get better. We’re
excited about where we are, but
know we haven’t hit our ceiling
yet.”
