graduate remains without bone marrow match; family sets up registration drive
Laura Hollar, 24, didn’t expect to
face a challenge like acute lympho-
blastic leukemia. Afer frst being
hospitalized on Dec. 26, Hollar is
currently in remission in an inten-
sive 30-day round of chemothera-
py, staying in inpatient treatment
at the University of Kansas Medi-
cal Center.
Afer graduating from the Uni-
versity in May 2012, Hollar had
planned to take a gap year and
apply to medical and chiropractic
schools. Instead of backpacking
through Europe this summer, she
now plans to recover in outpatient
“I’ve had everything from head-
aches to mouth sores to nausea,”
Hollar said. “I used to run and do
yoga, and I’ve lost 90 percent of my
If this round of chemotherapy
eliminates her cancerous cells,
Hollar will receive a stem cell
transplant to re-start her immune
system. She fnds herself applying
her Cellular Biology undergradu-
ate knowledge to make decisions
about her treatment options and to
assure her family.
“I took a class my junior year
called Molecular Biology of Can-
cer,” Hollar said. “I’ve been actually
passing that textbook around to
my family.”
Partially inspired by the Shari-
lyn and Jonathan Mathews mar-
row drive held on campus in Feb-
ruary, Hollar’s stepfather, Doug
Lapham, has worked with Be the
Match, a registry run by the Na-
tional Marrow Donor Program, to
organize a bone marrow registra-
tion drive today from 10 a.m. to 3
p.m. at the KU Credit Union, 3400
W. 6th St.
“We want to get healthy, young
people on the registry because they
can be on the registry for 20-plus
years,” Lapham said.
Potential donors must be be-
tween 18 and 44 years old. To reg-
ister, potential donors must bring
legal identifcation, fll out basic
paperwork and swab a Q-tip on the
inside of the cheek. A bone mar-
row donation with the same hu-
man leukocyte antigen tissue type
helps to restart the immune system
of cancer patients like Hollar.
Te process of donating stem
cells, said Kelly Allen from Over-
land Park, was easy and seamless.
In December, Be the Match con-
tacted Allen, who registered as a
potential bone marrow donor in
2010 because she was a preliminary
antigen tissue match. Afer agree-
ing to go forward with a peripheral
blood stem cell donation, Allen
received another phone call within
two hours. She went to a lab to get
bloodwork done that very day. A
few weeks later, she was confrmed
as a near-perfect match and, afer
basic physical and blood work to
make sure she was healthy, she was
fown to Georgetown University in
Washington, D.C.
Five days before the procedure
on Dec. 22, 2012, Allen received an
injection of flgrastim, a prescrip-
tion drug that encourages the body
to produce extra white blood cells,
which then create extra stem cells
that seep into the bloodstream.
During four hours of watching
movies and chatting with fellow
donors, Allen had blood drawn
from one arm, run through a ma-
chine to separate the platelets that
contain the extra stem cells, and
had the blood pumped back in
through her other arm.
While most donations can be
done through peripheral blood
stem cell donation like Allen’s,
which does not require anesthesia,
marrow donation is a surgical pro-
cedure where a doctor makes a few
incisions and uses a needle to col-
lect bone marrow from the pelvic
bone. Allen, who will be attending
the registration drive to support,
wants to dispel the myth that do-
nating is painful or scary.
“Tis is one of the only forms of
cancer that there is actually a cure,”
Allen said. “It’s not chemical, it’s
not made in the lab, it’s something
that one person can give to another
and it has a huge success rate. You
get to be a part of something spe-
A month afer her donation, Be
the Match notifed Allen that her
recipient accepted her stem cells
and he is now recovering. Because
the donation process is anony-
mous, Allen doesn’t know the indi-
vidual whose life her bone marrow
has saved. She hopes to meet him if
both she and her recipient are will-
ing one year afer the donation.
“What I love about both Be the
Match Foundation and the Leu-
kemia-Lymphoma Society is that
they have a direct impact on not
only research but patient support,”
Allen said. “Tere’s no other chari-
table organization that can imme-
diately save a life so quickly and
with such great impact.”

ApArtment guide
Taryn Miller, a senior from
Winfield, sits in the bathroom
sink, pressing the thick frames of
her glasses against the mirror as
she examines a rash that trails up
her neck and through her tousled
hair. It’s not the typical sign of a
hangover, but Miller recognizes it
as the result of her brash decision
to down a bottle of Heineken the
night before.
“I knew that it was either a reac-
tion to gluten or really, really bad
dandruff,” Miller said. “Sometimes
I get lazy or forget to think about
what I drink, but moments like
that remind me that it’s just as easy
to grab a beer that I won’t regret in
the morning.”
Luckily for Miller, her resolution
to drink glu-
ten-free beer
is fostered
by a grow-
ing market.
Brewers such
as Bard’s and
New Planet
join other
food and bev-
erage produc-
ers that have
realized the $4.2 billion gluten-free
market has grown by 28 percent in
the past four years.
That growth is primarily sus-
tained by those who undertake a
gluten-free diet for non-medical
reasons. In fact, less than 0.1 per-
cent of the population has been
confirmed to have celiac disease.
Miller, who has been gluten-free
for six years, suspects she joins the
one percent who has celiac but has
not been tested or diagnosed.
“My body is more sensitive to
it now than ever,” Miller said. “If
I accidentally have a little gluten,
I’m pretty miserable. I’ve never had
appendicitis, but I’d imagine that’s
probably the closest thing I can
compare the pain to.”
The protein not only poses prob-
lems for consumers of gluten-free
products, but also for producers.
Rigorous cleaning methods and
the cost of additional equipment
necessary for gluten-free certifi-
cation discourage several brewers
from contributing new products to
the gluten-free beer market. Steve
Bradt, the head of brewing and
bottling at Free State Brewery, said
issues of cross-contamination in the
plant would complicate the already
lengthy brew-
ing process
and prevent
Free State
from making
g l ut e n- f r e e
brewing a pri-
“We’ve been
focusing our
attention on
mai nt ai ni ng
the best quality of the brands we
have right now,” Bradt said. “We
definitely don’t want to spread our-
selves too thin, especially in a mar-
ket that is still pretty narrow.”
Despite the limitations of a niche
market, gluten-free brewers con-
tinue to pop up. When the Great
American Beer Festival officially
added a gluten-free category to its
competition in 2007, only eight
beers were entered. At the 2012 fes-
tival, the category drew 20 entries.
Last week, the Kansas Craft
Brewers Guild, of which Bradt is the
president, hosted its second annual
Kansas Craft Beer Exposition in
downtown Lawrence. Twenty-nine
breweries from the Midwest were
represented. Brewers from New
Planet, a gluten-free brewery out of
Fort Collins, Colo., featured their
Raspberry Ale, Blonde Ale and
Pale Ale.
“The New Planets went over
really well and disappeared quick-
ly,” Bradt said.
Anheuser-Busch has been the
leading U.S. brewer since 1957,
with more than 100 brands and
12 American breweries. It pro-
duces Redbridge, a sorghum-based
beer, making its headquarters in
St. Louis the nearest gluten-free
brewery to Lawrence. Free State
and a handful of other businesses
in Lawrence serve gluten-free beer
to consumers who don’t have their
sights set on a local brew.
Bradt said the most important
thing for any new brewer to con-
sider is whether there is a concen-
trated market in the surrounding
“I’m not sure Lawrence or even
Kansas City are big enough mar-
kets for gluten-free,” Bradt said.
“But that’s not to say they won’t
grow to the point where it might be
worthwhile for brewers to invest.”

The University Center for

saving competition. The competition
began on March 7 and runs through April
17. The competition pits major buildings
across campus in a competition to see
which one can save the most energy over
a six-week period.
Fourteen different buildings will
participate in the competition this year,
including Bailey Hall, which won the
contest last year. Each building’s energy
savings will be compared to the amount
it used during the same period in 2011,
and whichever makes the biggest
improvement will take home a traveling
trophy as well as bragging rights for the
next year.
The winner will be announced on April

Despite the 9.5 million poten-

Match, there is no match for Hol-
lar. Only one in 540 people who
register to donate are ever found
as a match to a patient in need.
Hollar’s options are now limited to
either an umbilical cord transplant
or a haploid transplant, which have
higher chances of bringing cancer
back into remission or causing a
graf versus host disease.
“We’re still holding out hope
that by some miracle of a chance
that something pops up — that
somebody’s a match somewhere,”
Hollar said. “But there are other
Afer recovering and complet-
ing medical or chiropractic school,
Hollar now hopes to open a clinic
or spa that would act as a liaison
for cancer patients between hospi-
talization and outpatient care.
“I can’t imagine not having the
support that I’ve had from my fam-
ily and being able to completely
rely on them,” Hollar said. “I can’t
imagine trying to do any of this on
your own so I want to open some-
thing up that provides an aford-
able place to go and have someone
there to help you.”
Hollar’s mother and stepfather
are both retired and have dedi-
cated themselves to staying with
her. Hollar receives letters, notes
and gifs from distant friends, her
grandmother’s friends and even
complete strangers. Her neighbors
have taken to cooking meals for
Hollar that meet her chemotherapy
diet. She recently discovered her
name on the prayer list at a church
she had never even heard of.
“Tere have been nights where
I’ve had to lay on the bathroom
foor for fve hours because I was
in so much pain,” Hollar said. “My
mom ended up making a palette
for me on the bathroom foor and

able to do something like that for
other people because there’s no

In the midst of chemotherapy,
Hollar would sleep for 20 hours a
day. When she was able to get on-
line, she was shocked and touched
by the volume of people who had
sent her text messages, posted on
her Facebook wall and lef mes-
sages for her on her CaringBridge
journal. She describes her journey
fghting cancer as life-changing
and stresses how important it is for
people, especially healthy 20-year-
olds who will be viable on Be the
Match’s registration list for de-
cades, to reach out to patients.
“It’s less painful than giving
blood, to get registered for it,”
Hollar said. “Tere are people out
there who have got it much, much
worse than I do. Registering could
make a huge diference and save
that person’s life.”
While potential donors need not
pay any money to register, lab fees
to check each potential donor for
an exact chromosomal match costs
$100. Tanks to the donations col-
lected online and through friends,
Hollar has already raised $6,985.

Attorney on trial for handling of ticket scandal case
WICHITA — The previous
attorney for a former University
of Kansas athletics consultant is
expected to testify Monday at
an evidentiary hearing to deter-
mine whether he did a poor job
in defending his client during
the prosecution of a $2 million
ticket scalping conspiracy.
U.S. District Judge Monti Be-
lot wants to hear from Thomas
Blubaugh’s defense attorney as
he considers whether to grant
the convicted man’s request for
a shorter sentence. Blubaugh
was sentenced in April 2011 to
46 months in prison after pre-
viously pleading guilty to one
count of conspiracy to defraud
the United States through wire
fraud, tax obstruction and in-
terstate transportation of stolen
Blubaugh, who has been
serving time at a federal prison
in Oklahoma, has asked a judge
to reduce his prison sentence to
no more than 33 months.
He contends the court im-
properly considered the value
of tickets for sporting events
that had passed, so-called dead-
wood files, which he had hid-
den in a private storage facility.
Blubaugh also claims he had
ineffective counsel, saying his
attorney assured him that the
prosecutor had promised he
would get probation in return
for helping the government —
even if all the defendants plead-
ed guilty and the case never
went to trial.
Belot said last month he was
surprised neither side called
Blubaugh’s former attorney,
Stephen Robison, to testify at
last month’s hearing on the re-
quest. The judge took the rare
step of setting another hearing
so he could listen to Robison’s
The court also granted a pros-
ecution request seeking copies
of Robison’s defense file on the
case, finding Blubaugh waived
attorney-client privilege when
he made a claim of ineffective
assistance of counsel.
Blubaugh has challenged his
sentence in a pleading from
prison in which he claims the
court erred in allowing the gov-
ernment to use information he
provided to adjust the amount
of loss attributed to him. He
argued his plea agreement pro-
hibited the government from
using the previously concealed
“deadwood” tickets he turned
over in determining his guide-
line sentence.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Rich-
ard Hathaway has argued in
court filings that prosecutors
already knew about the tickets
even before Blubaugh told them
they had not actually been de-
stroyed. The government also
took issue with the claim of in-
effective counsel claim by not-
ing that his defense attorney
had vigorously pressed the is-
sue of the “deadwood” tickets in
two sentencing memorandums
and at the sentencing hearing.
Hathaway argued in a court fil-
ing that an attorney is not inef-
fective simply for failing to win
an argument.
Hathaway also pointed out
that the defendant himself ac-
knowledged in his plea agree-
ment that he had not yet pro-
vided substantial assistance to
the government and that the
sentence would be up to the
judge to decide.
Blubaugh and his wife, Char-
lette, the university’s former
ticket director, were among
seven people convicted in a
scheme involving tickets to
football and basketball games.
Five people were convicted of
conspiracy and were sentenced
to prison terms after all pleaded
guilty. Two others who coop-
erated early with prosecutors
were given probation sentences
after pleading guilty to a lesser
charge of failing to tell authori-
ties about the scheme.

ent is in full swing. For
those of you who are
religious, it’s a time to sit
back and atone for all the sins
you’ve committed against your
fellow man by eating those new
Fish McBites at McDonald’s. But
I find it’s also a good time to
reflect on the sins you’ve com-
mitted against your eardrums
(and the eardrums of the person
across the hall from where you
shower). That’s right, there’s no
time like the present to make a
musical confession! I’ll lead the
Forgive me, readers, for I
have sinned. Over the past few
months, I have listened to the
1. A hideously overproduced
funk-rock number by one-
hit-wonders Ian Dury and the
Blockheads entitled “Hit Me
with Your Rhythm Stick,” about a
third of whose lyrics are in hor-
ribly broken German and French
because it sounds more exotic
that way. I have a feeling that the
frontman was either too drunk
or too British to notice the innu-
endo on this track, because he
shouts the titular line earnestly
and without a hint of irony. I tell
you, if I ever get so strapped for
cash that I have to become a gay
porn star, I’m co-opting this as
my theme song.
2. “Happy Boy,” a minute-long
ode to a roadkilled dog by alter-
native-country band The Beat
Farmers. Unlike most songs deal-
ing with death and loss, this one
features a sing-a-long chorus and
an instrumental break in which
the melody is carried by a kazoo
player and a man gargling a glass
of water. Sometimes, when I’m
singing this song in the shower,
I’ll stand under the showerhead
with my mouth open for a few
seconds to make sure I’ve got
enough liquid to produce the
same rich, gurgly timbre as the
band’s drummer did back in ’85.
I once burned my mouth quite
badly doing this, but the result-
ing screams were indistinguish-
able from the gargles on the Beat
Farmers’ live album, so I called it
a victory.
3. “Sex Dwarf ” by Soft Cell.
I once walked from the Union
all the way to Wescoe Hall while
listening to this song, singing
along to about half of the lyr-
ics because that was all I knew.
If you remember seeing a fat
guy with a bulky, ugly Fair Isle
sweater and bulkier, uglier head-
phones strutting past you and
mumbling something in a nasally
voice about having tea-time in
his little playroom with disco
dollies — that was probably me.
If you remember the weird, hip-
swinging dance I did on the way
up the stairs into Wescoe, as well,
keep that fresh in your mind; it’s
prime blackmail material.
But just confessing your sins
isn’t enough. You’ve got to do
some musical penance, too,
in the form of weird, overly
experimental albums that you
listen to once and then can’t
even be bothered to delete from
your iTunes library. For my
penance this year, I elected to
listen to “Trout Mask Replica,” a
landmark noise-rock album by
Captain Beefheart & His Magic
Band. It’s an hour-and-a-half of
awful blues songs that managed
to garner critical acclaim despite
being saddled with unfortunate,
stream-of-consciousness titles
like “Neon Meate Dream of a
Octafish.” For that hour-and-
a-half, I felt a cathartic rush of
sensation coursing through my
entire being. Or maybe it was
just the convulsions of laughter
brought on by nonsensical lyrics
like “That’s right, The Mascara
Snake, fast and bulbous! Also,
a tin teardrop!” It’s hard to
tell the difference sometimes.
Nevertheless, I felt like the big-
gest hipster on the planet. And
isn’t that how music is supposed
to make you feel?
I urge you to atone for your
sins in a similar fashion. I’ve
confessed mine out in public,
but all you need to do is find a
friend who you can trust not to
do a spit-take when he finds out
you listen to “Sugar Sugar” by
The Archies on repeat and who
won’t mind recommending you
some musical Fish McBites to
cleanse you afterward. Hell, you
could even come look for me: I’ll
be outside of Wescoe, gyrating
wildly while singing something
about violating people.

rees everywhere should

becoming more and more
clear that our generation might
be the last generation to use low-

school and work.
While I really don’t like the

tech learning is that no one (read
as “me, myself and I”) likes the
format of those online quizzes on
I’ve only recently started to
join in on all the fun after buy-
ing a language-learning app
called MindSnacks. It’s mind
blowing. Spending 15 minutes
a day playing games just as fun
as Temple Run has me speaking
better Italian than a semester of
school (in your defense Italian
department, my Italian writing is
worse than abysmal). You know
how you should start teaching
children a new language before
kindergarten? Give an iPad with
MindSnacks to preschoolers,
and they would be polyglots in
three weeks.
According to Wired, the num-
ber of teachers who had at least
one tablet in their room jumped
from 20 to 35 percent last year,
and 43 percent of Advanced
Placement students are using
tablets to complete assignments
in class. My high school was no
exception; it bought a cartload
of iPads for the foreign lan-
guage department. My German
class was only able to use them
once (because who cares about
German, right?), and all we did
was use the Internet to translate
words instead of old, decaying
dictionaries, but nevertheless, it
was still awesome.
Imagine if there were apps
like this for algebra and calcu-
lus, or chemistry and physics.
Your textbook would be like
something out of Harry Potter:
“Having trouble visualizing
organic chemistry structures?
Here, turn the page and watch
a video.” Word problems could
become miniature games at
the end of a lesson: a problem
about velocity and acceleration
in Physics 101 could turn into
a really, really difficult round of
Angry Birds.
Are you still imagining? Then
stop. According to the same
Wired article, apps like those
already exist. For people who
learn visually, like me, this would
be a godsend.
I’m excited, guys. Pretty soon
(like everything I tell you about,
“soon” means “for your chil-
dren”), school desks will just be
giant touch screen computers.
All you’d need in your backpack
is a single tablet with all of your
books and homework installed.
Hell, if we’re lucky, teachers
might start broadcasting their
lectures to your tablet, and you
wouldn’t even have to leave your
bed. The future of education
might be fun, ladies and gentle-
men. I’m actually disappointed
it’s coming after our time in the

e’ve all seen it. The
video begins with
Taylor Swift singing
“I Knew You Were Trouble,” and
next thing you know, a goat is
screaming along with the music.
Goats have received attention
recently for their featured vocals
in some of today’s popular hits;
however, few realize the potential
of goats to be revolutionary.
I began thinking about goats
as more than just adorable crea-
tures after seeing Rich Addicks’s
short film, “Weed War.” This film
is seriously incredible. It shows
Mark Harbaugh, Patagonia fly-
fishing representative and goat
rancher, making a sustainable
effect in the Rocky Mountains.
Mark Harbaugh is passionate
about goats and the benefits of
using them as weed control over
toxic chemicals. He makes the
point that goats cost a third of
the price of chemical spray, create
no environmental damage and
improve the habitat. Specifically,
Harbaugh combats Leafy Spurge,
a weed with a 20-foot taproot that
produces a milky lactate, which
deters most animals from eat-
ing it. He has designed a system
that takes the same amount of
time as chemical management by
combining goats to break down
the weeds and then releasing
certain types of beetles to finish
decomposing the remainder of
the plant.
Rich Addick supports the
documentary with some jaw-
dropping facts. In 2001, nearly 5
billion pounds of chemicals were
used in the United States to kill
weeds and insects. Only 5 percent
of these chemicals reached their
intended destination. Invasive
plants cause more than $20 bil-
lion in economic damage due to
the fact that they affect millions
of acres of private and public
lands. A goat eats 16 hours a day,
and noxious weeds are a favorite
meal choice. A herd of 3,000
goats can eat their way through
50 acres of weed in one day.
Goats prove themselves as
more than sustainable. Cheryl K.
Smith includes self sufficiency
as a benefit of having goats in
the book “Rasing Goats for
Dummies.” Goats produce milk,
fiber and meat. According to
Smith, goats can be milked for
three years without rebreeding.
Fibers produced by goats include
mohair, cashmere, and a fiber
called cashgora.
So now that we know goats are
an awesome sustainable and self-
sufficient resource, where do we
go from here? I truly believe the
University should invest in a herd
of goats.
The addition of goats to our
campus would promote the
University as an environmentally
responsible school, even more so
than its current impressive repu-
tation. Goats would further the
Campus Sustainability Plan by
creating a more efficient and eco-
friendly alternative to chemicals.
In the plan’s vision, it states, “By
utilizing the campus as a living
laboratory and engaging students
and faculty in campus projects,
KU can find ways to complete
tasks more efficiently.” Beyond
this, goats could easily be used
for recruitment.
The campus would save money
on weed-killing chemicals and
have a new unique defining fac-
tor. The KU bookstore could
sell a line of clothing made from
authentic KU goat yarn. The
Underground could have food
made with local goat products.
The goats could be incorporated
into classes, and jobs would be
created in order for care and
management of the goats. I can’t
think of a better on-campus job
than a goat herder.
I understand the limitations of
this idea, but as Harbaugh said,
“Doing the right thing can be
profitable and it is very heart-
warming and gratifying at the
end of the day.”

know things we don’t.
CheCk OuT
The ANSwerS
With the last month filled up
by the fashion week show sea-
son in New York, London, Milan
and Paris, models, designers and
fashion lovers were busy moving
from one runway show to the
next. One face stood out from
the rest, and that was model Cara
Delevingne, a 20-year-old
British model, seemed to be in
just about every runway show
in every city. And if she wasn’t
in the actual show itself, she was
sitting in the front row.
An endless stream of designers
hired the it-girl to showcase their
Fall 2013 collections, includ-
ing Oscar de la Renta, Sister by
Sibling, Jeremy Scott, Chanel,
Marc Jacobs, DKNY, Lanvin,
Matthew Williamson and Unique,
just to name a few.
This wasn’t Cara’s first rodeo,
either. Delevingne was in the
famous Victoria Secret Fashion
Show in November, as well as
January’s Haute Couture fash-
ion week in Paris. She was even
awarded the Model of the Year
2012 award at the British Fashion
Awards in November, going up
against models Jourdan Dunn
and David Gandy. British Vogue
named her the “star face” of the
autumn and winter 2012-2013
show season, after she walked in
31 different shows last fall.
Delevingne isn’t going any-
where soon, either. As if ruling
fashion week in each of the fash-
ion capitals of the world wasn’t
enough, Delevingne is also the
face of Chanel’s Resort 2013
campaign, as well as Burberry’s
for yet another season. You may
recognize her from past cam-
paigns for both H&M and Zara
as well. As if the overwhelm-
ing amount of success wasn’t
enough, Delevingne is also best
friends with singer Rita Ora and
One Direction’s Harry Styles. It
seems there’s hardly anything this
model can’t do, except maybe
take a bad photo. As far as the
fashion world is concerned, it’s
Cara Delevingne’s world, and
we’re just living in it.

uperhero or not, one thing
is for sure: Batman is run-
ning the world’s deadliest
internship program.
In last month’s issue of “Batman
Incorporated,” renowned scribe
Grant Morrison hurled a contro-
versy-charged batarang through
the heart of the DC Nation when
he decided to kill off Damian
Wayne, the fourth Boy Wonder
and genetically perfect offspring
of Bruce Wayne and supervillain-
ess Talia al Ghul. Despite being
a relatively recent addition to
the Bat family, the caustic, pint-
sized assassin had grown into
an enduring fan favorite, and
the outcry over the 10-year-old’s
death made international head-
lines, even in The New York Post
and other publications that don’t
make a habit of covering fictional
Morrison, who created the
character shortly after DC hand-
ed him the reigns to the “Batman”
series in 2006, insists that
Damian’s demise was years in the
planning and defends the graphic
violence used to depict the side-
kick’s final struggle against his
growth-accelerated clone, a hulk-
ing, scimitar-wielding abomina-
tion known as the Heretic.
This isn’t the first time the
Dark Knight’s junior partner has
met with an untimely end. In
1988, hoping to offset sagging
sales, DC editor Dennis O’Neil
came up with the idea of letting
his readers decide the fate of a
major character. The first Robin,
circus acrobat Dick Grayson, had
outgrown the mantle and now
fought alongside Batman under
the persona of Nightwing. His
replacement was Jason Todd, a
petulant street urchin whose ori-
gin involved him attempting to
steal the tires off the Batmobile.
Unlike the loyal, light-hearted
Grayson, Todd was a malad-
justed teen rebel who smoked,
cussed and regularly questioned
Batman’s authority, especially his
commitment to non-lethal force.
He was largely unpopular with
the fans, and when O’Neill held
a telephone poll on whether or
not to kill the character, a slim
majority (5,343 to 5,271) voted in
favor of the young man’s demise.
The result was “A Death in the
Family,” the infamous four-issue
story arc that culminated with
Robin being savagely assaulted
and ultimately murdered by the
So why do we get so worked
up over the fate of imaginary
characters? From the off-camera
shooting of Bambi’s mom and
the traumatic regicide/fratri-
cide of Mufasa to J.K. Rowling’s
wholesale slaughter of seemingly
half the wizarding world in the
finale of “Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hallows,” our first inti-
mate encounters with death are
often experienced through the
protective lens of fiction. Some
characters take up residence
in our hearts, and losing them
can hurt. These experiences are
both cathartic and instructive,
a training-wheels version of the
grieving process that promotes
the necessity of letting go and
moving on.
I’ve watched people who
don’t cry during funerals break
down during certain episodes of
“Scrubs” or at the end of mov-
ies like “Big Fish” and “Grave of
the Fireflies.” And even though
I know he’s experiencing what
amounts to a transcendental
wardrobe change, I still can’t
make it through Gandalf ’s death
in “Fellowship of the Ring” with-
out rolling a tear or two.
As an avid fan of the Caped
Crusader since childhood, I
can say that Morrison’s run on
“Batman” has been a remarkable,
revitalizing experience for the
series, which before his arrival
had been plagued by static char-
acters and flat, repetitive story-
telling. His Damian was a Robin
unlike any other, a brash, boastful
little hellion the Scottish writer
used as the impetus behind his
plan to shake the cobwebs off a
stagnant franchise.
Grown in an artificial womb
and trained from birth by the
League of Assassins to kill for
sport and profit, the boy came
to Gotham City as Talia’s final
taunt to her darling Detective, a
living denouncement of every-
thing Batman supposedly stands
for. Yet as the series went on and
Damian had the opportunity to
bond with the rest of the Bat-
family, especially Dick Grayson,
it became obvious he was just a
lost boy in search of an absent
father. By the time of his death,
he was redeemed in full, a hero
who died defending the innocent
while his parents were busy fight-
ing each other.
I know comics have an unfor-
tunate habit of never letting the
dead rest for long. Even Jason
Todd was eventually resur-
rected as a wisecracking vig-
ilante called the Red Hood. I
just hope Morrison, who’s leav-
ing the series after wrapping up
“Batman Incorporated,” has the
Bat-cojones to tell the other writ-
ers that Damian is officially off-
limits. This bird has flown.

“Harlem shake”
strikes Tunisia
TUNIS, Tunisia — After attacks
by religious extremists, the assas-
sination of an opposition politician
and the resignation of the prime
minister, Tunisia is now being
assailed by... an Internet dance
The YouTube phenomenon of
the “Harlem Shake” has popped up
in spots all over the world, but in
Tunisia it’s more than just a curios-
ity or a fad — it has become part of
a bitter rivalry between the secular-
ists and Islamists striving to shape
the identity of this North African
nation as it transitions to democ-
racy after years of dictatorship.
Videos posted by Tunisian stu-
dents have provoked a violent
backlash by conservative Muslims,
condemnations from the education
minister and hundreds of new copy-
cat videos online.
The global Internet sensation
involves a 30-second video show-
ing first one person dancing, then
dozens gyrating maniacally to the
song “Harlem Shake,” recorded by
Brooklyn disc jockey and producer
Baauer. Thousands of new videos
of everyone from Norwegian sol-
diers to Australian teenagers and
now Tunisian students doing the
“Harlem Shake” are now online.
In Tunisia, the “Harlem Shake”
craze comes just over two years
since a revolution overthrew a
repressive secular dictatorship and
ushered in new freedoms, includ-
ing for religious ultraconservatives
known as Salafis who are eager to
impose their will — even violently
at times. Salafis are suspected in the
killing of leftist opposition leader
Chokri Belaid, an assassination that
triggered the resignation of Tunisia’s
prime minister earlier this year.
Tunisia’s experience with the
video began with a group of stu-
dents at Tunis’ El Menzah high
school producing their own version,
which then spawned a host of copy-
cat videos all over the country.
In the El Menzah high school
video, a single student dances to
the song, quietly watched by oth-
ers until the halfway point; then
the video cuts to a whole slew of
students, some in their underwear,
some dressed as bearded Salafis and
some as Gulf emirs flailing around.
Opinions over the videos have
been split, with some calling it
immoral and provocative — even
going so far as to call the students
unbelievers and marked for death
— while others seeing it as typical
of humor in Tunisia, where many
retain strong secular tastes.
The video sparked an angry reac-
tion from Minister of Education
Abdellatif Abid, who last week
announced an investigation of the
school’s principal for allowing an
“indecent” video to be filmed on
the premises.
In the coastal city Mahdia, one
student received 12 stitches on his
head after being beaten following
one attack. In the southern city Sfax
and in the resort city Sousse, police
have had to intervene and separate
groups battling over the right to
make a “Harlem Shake” video.
“This dance for us represents a
way to vent, to forget for a little
while all the stress we’ve been under
for the past year,” said Sabiha, a
21-year-old university student
who protested Friday in front of
the Education Ministry against the
minister’s investigation, performing
a version of the dance.
Her colleague Saber, 24, who also
did not want his last name used
because of the tensions surrounding
the song, said being able to dance
like this was a fruit of Tunisia’s
“We wanted to take advantage
of our newfound freedoms thanks
to the revolution, after the years
of harassment and repression,” he

LOS ANGELES _ The Grammy
Museum will put up its third
salute to a Beatle with the June
12 opening of “Ringo: Peace and
Love,” billed as “the first major
exhibition to explore the life of
Ringo Starr.”
Museum officials have gathered
previously unpublished photos,
correspondence and film foot-
age as well as iconic items from
Starr’s career. Some of the nota-
ble artifacts include the drum
kits he played when the Beatles
performed historic concerts on
“The Ed Sullivan Show” and at
Shea Stadium in New York, his
military-inspired costume from
“Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club
Band” and the red jacket he wore
on the group’s 1969 farewell con-
cert on the rooftop of Abbey Road
studio in London.
The exhibit also will have an
interactive feature allowing visi-
tors to take a virtual music les-
son with the world’s most famous
rock drummer.
In addition to his music with
the Beatles and as a solo artist in
the 40 years after the group dis-
banded, the show will touch on
his activities as an actor, philan-
thropist and peace activist.
Starr has made several visits to
the Grammy Museum, including
a Q&A session and performance
in 2010 in conjunction with the
release of his album “Y Not.”
“Ringo: Peace and Love” will
run through November, and then
tour select cities to be announced.
Full information is available on
the Grammy Museum’s website.
The museum has also previously
hosted shows dedicated to the
lives and careers of John Lennon
and George Harrison.

Seldom do students have an
opportunity to see a perform-
ing group from another coun-
try. Last Friday, the Lied Center
hosted a performance from the
Swiss pantomime troupe known
visited Lawrence as part of their
40th anniversary tour.
“It was really fun,” said Leigha
Sledge, a sophomore from Min-
neapolis, Minn. “It was enter-
taining for both the younger and
older audiences.”
The troupe’s name is derived
from an old English term for a
mime artist. This characterizes
their performances, which often
use masks and lighting to give
the show a surreal quality.
“It’s fantastical performance,
mime theater and every child’s
dream,” said Karen Christilles,
associate director of the Lied
Center. “Just taking the fantasti-
cal of every day and make it into
something that is humorous.”
The troupe performed their
routines with inanimate objects
and used them to create their
own characters, including a pair
of hands that opened the show as
well as different faces and other
types of creatures.
Christilles said that the troupe’s
performance was booked around
this time last year and they were
eager to have them.
“We heard ‘oh they’re going to
be on tour here in the U.S.’ and
they’re going to be touring here
in a particular time frame and
you would have an opportunity
to have them here,” said Chris-
tilles. “Since it’s their 40th an-
niversary tour we thought that
made it special.”
The performance consisted of
several skit performances that
entertained both the young and
old in the audience. Michele Ber-
endsen, Marketing Communica-
tions Director at the Lied Center,
also expressed enthusiasm about
the troupe’s performance.
“It is exciting to have such a
unique group of performers visit
the Lied Center,” said Berend-
sen. “Without dialogue, body
language and movement are
used to ...transcend cultures and
amuse the whole family.”
The performance was well-
received by the audience.
“It was a lot of fun,” said com-
munity member Craig Paul. “It’s
a good introduction for kids to
types of abstract art.”

JERUSALEM — Israelis can
now read Playboy ‘for the articles’
as a Hebrew language edition
came to the holy land Tuesday.
Playboy has been widely avail-
able in Israel for years but this
marks the first local edition of the
magazine. It features Israeli mod-
els and articles by Israeli writers.
Owner and publisher Daniel
Pomerantz launched Playboy
Israel in Tel Aviv on Tuesday at
a press conference, standing next
to a tall model wearing the trade-
mark ears and tail of a Playboy
“Our target is men who want
a taste of the good life and also
women who are curious about
the tastes of the men in their
lives,” Pomerantz said. “I believe
that the special formula that has
brought Playboy to a rare level of
success throughout the world will
continue to succeed in my new
home Israel.”
Cover girl Nataly Dadon posed
next to a big cut-out of the maga-
zine featuring her on the cover
topless in lacy underwear. She
said she was happy and excited to
be in the first edition of Playboy
It’s not clear how well the mag-
azine will be received in the holy
land where observant Jews and
Muslims live by strict modesty
rules. Religious zealots have fre-
quently burned down bus stops
with ads of fully dressed women
and have prompted major adver-
tisers not to use female models
regardless of how modestly they
are covered up.
Erotica is freely available but
not with local talent in Hebrew.
The Israeli edition of Penthouse,
the traditional and more daring
rival of Playboy, flopped when it
debuted here in 1989.
Pomerantz said he got the idea
for the Hebrew Playboy while
working as a lawyer in Chicago
where the magazine’s headquar-
ters used to be and where he
became friends with Playboy law-
yers. At the same time he was
making visits to Israel where he
decided he wanted to live. It was
during a trip to Israel that he
noticed the country was lacking a
Hebrew edition and so the adven-
ture began.
Pomerantz is confident the
magazine will succeed. “Israel is
a very complicated country with
tradition and modernity and also
with serious things and fun fash-
ionable things and that is exactly
the character of Playboy. It is a
complicated and beautiful maga-
zine for a complicated and beau-
tiful country,” he said.
“People will see just from the
words Playboy Israel that we are
a normal country, fashionable,
modern, people who work every
day with a passion and if you read
Playboy magazine you see that
it’s not just beauty and fashion
but it’s also depth and politics
and issues, people who care and
think about the world they live
in,” he said.

The boy-band phenomenon One
Direction is coming to the Mall
of America for six weeks.
But the fab five won’t be there
in the flesh. A pop-up store offer-
ing all manner of swag branded
with the likenesses of the British
singers opens on March 16, sell-
ing posters, calendars, T-shirts
and a chance to win prizes _
including coveted tickets to their
summer tour.
It’s part of the latest push to
build the buzz and bottom lines
of the English-Irish pop stars,
whose meteoric rise has become a
$50 million business enterprise.
But the armies of young fans
(and their parents) that the store
is expected to bring to the mall
may serve as a shot in the arm to
brick-and-mortar stores as they
fight to combat online competi-
tion and remain a destination.
“The real winner is not just
the band but also the Mall of
America,” said Michael Brown,
a retail analyst with global man-
agement consulting firm A.T.
Kearney. “As more people shop
online, they’re putting in a shop
that could draw hundreds or
thousands of people to the mall
who might not have come out to
The temporary store, which
will be called 1D World, is the
third to open in the United States
and one of 20 expected to open
by the end of the band’s tour in
August, said William Stone, the
U.S. project manager for the 1D
World stores.
The first store launched almost
on a lark in Sydney, Australia, for
a couple of weekends last year,
and more than 2,500 young fans
showed up for the opening. The
pop-up concept has since spread
to New Zealand, Sweden, Spain
and Canada, with a couple of
stores finally heading to London.
The Mall of America store will
be heavy on accessories, with
120 items including rings, wrist
bands and iPhone covers. The
most popular items are life-size
cutouts of the band members,
which sell for $35. Also popular:
an adult “onesie,” a zip-up jump-
suit that sells for $100.
“We put together an exclusive
line just for the store,” Stone said.
“The concept is basically taking
a concert retail operation out of
that venue and moving it into a
retail store.”
The five-member band of
Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn
Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Niall
Horan are cheekily referred to as
part of a new “British Invasion.”
After competing on the British
TV singing show “X Factor” in
2010, One Direction catapult-
ed onto the music scene. Their
voices and charisma (and great
hair) won the hearts of teenage
girls everywhere. The band has
more than 13.7 million Facebook
fans and 10.4 million followers
on Twitter.
One Direction goes beyond
most celebrity retail endeavors.
They’ve got duvet covers, dolls,
even a toothbrush that plays their
hit, “One Thing,” to encourage
kids to brush longer through the
two minutes of music. British
catalog giant Argos signed One
Direction to launch a line of sil-
ver bracelets and necklaces in its
spring-summer issue.
The pop-up store is emerging
as a new merchandising channel
for the music industry.
“Years ago, there were record
stores and CD stores that could
move the intellectual properties,”
Brown said. “With everything
being digital, more artists and
more acts are going to have to
find creative venues to bring their
brand to the market.”
The store opening comes in
advance of a sold-out show on
July 18 at the Target Center in
downtown Minneapolis, where
scalpers are selling tickets for
hundreds of dollars.
LONDON — It’s been a rough
week for Justin Bieber: Getting
booed for being late, struggling
to breathe mid-performance and
fainting backstage and then get-
ting caught on camera clashing
with paparazzi.
But the 19-year-old pop sensa-
tion appeared to have recovered
Friday for his fnal concert in
London, singing and dancing to
thousands of adoring fans at the
O2 Arena.
Earlier Friday, the star made
headlines when he got into an
altercation with insult-hurling
paparazzi. He lashed out at a
photographer with a stream of
expletives and was restrained by
“Ahhhhh! Rough morning.
Trying to feel better for this show
tonight but let the paps get the
best of me,” the singer posted on
Twitter soon afer the altercation
with the photographer, which
took place as he got into a car.
Te scufe was captured on video
by Channel 5 News and widely
broadcast by Britain’s media.
“Sometimes when people r
shoving cameras in your face all
day and yelling the worst thing
possible at u...well I’m human.
Rough week,” he wrote on Twit-
Te clash came just hours afer
Bieber said he was “getting bet-
ter” following breathing problems
he sufered during the previous
night’s concert. Te star took
a short break to go backstage,
where he was given oxygen. He
had to be briefy hospitalized for
a check-up.
A spokesman for the O2 Arena
said Bieber was treated backstage
during Tursday’s concert afer
becoming short of breath, but re-
covered and fnished his set.
“He was treated by our team of
medics and afer further exami-
nation they didn’t fnd anything
more serious or worrying.”
A spokeswoman for Bieber said
he was feeling “a little under the
weather.” She demanded anonym-
ity to discuss the star’s condition.
Bieber later posted a shirtless
photo of himself in a hospital bed,
saying he was getting better and
listening to Janis Joplin. Before
that on Twitter he thanked “ev-
eryone pulling me thru tonight.”
“Best fans in the world,” he
wrote. “Figuring out what hap-
pened. Tanks for the love.”
Video footage from the concert
shows Bieber appearing to fade
during a performance of his up-
tempo hit, “Beauty and a Beat.”
He slows down, puts a hand to his
head then bends over, resting his
hands on knees before walking
slowly to the back of the stage.
Te AP spoke to 18-year-old
journalism student Prithvi Pan-
dya, who shot the footage, to con-
frm its authenticity.
“When he started ‘Beauty and a
Beat’ you could see he was strug-
gling,” said Pandya, who was
near the front of the crowd. “He
took lots of drinks of water, that
seemed unusual, and he was real-
ly sweaty, sweating a helluva lot.
“Toward the end of it, he went
backstage. We didn’t see him
fainting. Tey brought on dancers
to entertain, and I knew some-
thing was wrong at that point.”
Bieber’s manager, Scooter
Braun, appeared onstage and told
the crowd that the singer was feel-
ing “very low of breath” but would
come back to fnish the show.
Jazz Chappell, a 20-year-old
concertgoer who brought her
younger sister and her friend to
the show, said that In the nearly
30 minutes he was ofstage, some
fans started to leave. Once his
manager announced what had
happened, Chappell said many
fans in the audience were gasp-
ing and crying, while others kept
cheering for him to return.
“I thought, ‘Give the guy a
break. He just fainted. He’s not a
performing horse. Let him rest a
second,’” Chappell said.

WACO, Texas — Oklahoma
State, the origin of Kansas’ three-
game losing streak that nearly
cost the Jayhawks a share of the
conference title, proved to be
the reason Kansas is a Big 12
champion for the ninth straight
The Cowboys defeated the
Kansas State Wildcats 76-70 ear-
lier Saturday, and Kansas entered
its tilt with Baylor knowing that
it had already secured at least a
share of the conference title.
A share was all the Jayhawks
got, as Baylor controlled most of
the game in an 81-58 shellacking
of Kansas.
“It doesn’t feel like we won
it at all, really,” senior center
Jeff Withey said. “We tied with
K-State and it’s cool to win it
obviously. Nine in a row is huge.
It just stinks to lose.”
Coach Bill Self said he thought
his team would relax and play
loose knowing the Wildcats had
lost earlier in the day. If Kansas
State had won, Self said the
matchup with Baylor would have
been equivalent to an NCAA
Tournament game because a loss
would have ended Kansas’ title
“I’m not going to ever apolo-
gize for winning a league cham-
pionship,” Self said. “I’m not
happy. I’m a lot happier than I
would be if it was different and
we finished second.”
Kansas briefly talked about
already clinching a share of the
championship in the locker room
before the game, Withey said,
which might have affected the
Jayhawks’ focus without them
realizing it.
When the game started though,
it briefly looked like Kansas
might play cohesively enough to
grab an outright conference title.
Freshman guard Ben McLemore
scored the game’s first points on
a layup five seconds into the
Baylor came back and tied the
game about 40 seconds later on
a Cory Jefferson jumper, and
Kansas never led again.
Jefferson and Pierre Jackson
led Baylor with identical 11-13
shooting nights. Jackson had
28 points, and Jefferson had 25,
including two one-handed slams
over Withey in the first half.
Jefferson also displayed a long-
range shooting touch no one had
seen before.
The junior forward made his
first career 3-pointer midway
through the first half, and then
made another shortly before half-
time. He made his third 3-pointer
early in the second half.
“I wasn’t expecting him to
shoot threes like that,” Withey
said. “I know Cory pretty well
because I played overseas with
him. I never saw that part of him.
He played great.”
Midway through the sec-
ond half, a Jefferson jumper
gave Baylor a 17-point lead.
Then McLemore and freshman
forward Perry Ellis scored 11
straight points to slice the margin
to 61-55, the closest the game
had been in almost 12 minutes.
The run was fitting, because
McLemore led Kansas with 23
points, and Ellis was second with
12. But whereas Jefferson and
Jackson received help from their
supporting cast, McLemore and
Ellis got little help from theirs.
Senior guard Elijah Johnson
was the only other Jayhawk in
double figures, finishing with 10
points. Freshman center Isaiah
Austin and senior guard A.J.
Walton complemented Jackson
and Jefferson with 11 and 12
points, respectively.
After Baylor coach Scott
Drew called a timeout with his
team’s lead cut to six, the Bears
responded with a 9-0 run from
four different players. The lead
never dipped below 13 points
“That was the whole theme of
the night,” Withey said. “I felt like
every time we were doing some-
thing good they were just doing
something better.”
Jackson closed out the scor-
ing with a breakaway layup with
one minute left, and Baylor
outscored Kansas 12-0 in tran-
sition. The 23-point loss was
Kansas’ worst defeat since losing
by 25 points to Texas in 2006.
Jefferson and Jackson com-
bined for 53 points, which was
identical to the 53 points scored
by Oklahoma State’s Marcus
Smart and Markel Brown in the
Cowboys’ early February vic-
tory over the Jayhawks at Allen
Self said Smart and Brown
“were good, too, but they didn’t
go 22-26. Cory’s performance
wasn’t a surprise because you
knew he’s a good player and he
could score.”

After a 77-62 loss to Iowa
State in the quarterfinals of the
Big 12 tournament, there’s noth-
ing to do but want. The Jayhawks
think they have high-enough
quality wins to be included in
the NCAA tournament when
the selection committee makes
the decision next week, but that
15-point loss to Iowa State will
not help Kansas’ chances in
Dallas on Saturday.
An early lead didn’t last for
Kansas, as Iowa State gained its
composure after a nervous start
in its first game of the tourna-
ment. Kansas lost its lead after
eight minutes in the first half
and never regained it.
At half, Iowa State led 34-26.
The Cyclones continued to
steadily build a lead from there
as the Jayhawks failed to find
a weak spot in the Iowa State
defense. With four minutes left
in the second half, the Cyclones
held a 22-point lead.
Kansas’ defense left shooters
open in transition and failed to
get into position, which has been
a problem throughout Kansas’
losses this season. Iowa State
shot 46 percent from the field
and 18-for-19 from the free-
throw line.
“They executed, and we didn’t
answer their run,” Kansas coach
Bonnie Henrickson said.
Henrickson and her team
had no answer to Iowa State
senior forward Chelsea Poppens
and junior forward Hallie
Christofferson. Poppens poured
in 24 points and Christofferson
scored 23 to carry the Cyclones
to the semifinals.
Poppens and Christofferson
combined for 26 of the 34 points
by Iowa State in the first half.
The two of them matched the
offensive production of all eight
Jayhawks who played in the first
Poppens is a physically tough
post player who scored in the
paint. Christofferson can play
multiple positions and scored
inside and out, going 3-for-6
from behind the arc.
“They have a tough front line,”
senior center Carolyn Davis said.
“It’s a challenge for our guards
to guard Christofferson in the
Davis said the game plan for
Kansas was to front the Iowa
State post players. When the
Jayhawks did that, they were
able to slow the Cyclone offense;
when they didn’t, Iowa State took
Kansas’ question now is how
bad this loss will look to the
selection committee next week.
Iowa State is not currently
ranked in the AP top 25 poll,
but the team finished second in
the Big 12 and defeated tourna-
ment teams Texas Tech by 15
points and Oklahoma by 21 this
season. Iowa State causes match-
up problems for nearly any team
it faces, especially for a Kansas
team that lacks depth and size.
This loss should not be a major
concern for Kansas, but a win
would have made it much easier
for the Jayhawks to breathe dur-
ing the next week.
“We’re not for sure what’s
going to happen,” senior guard
Angel Goodrich said.
Nobody is, but if last year
provides any indication, the
Jayhawks could squeak into the
NCAA tournament based on
their solid conference wins.
“We think we’ve had some
great wins,” Davis said. “We’re
kind of in the same position we
were in last year. We’re just going
to have to wait and see.”
Some of the wins Kansas has
on its résumé include a win ear-
lier in the season against Iowa
State, a win against Oklahoma
and road wins at West Virginia
and Creighton. Kansas is 18-13
after the loss to Iowa State; last
season it was 19-12.
“Of course I think we should
be in,” Henrickson said. “I
thought the committee made a
great decision last year, and I
thought we made them look real

Indoor Track
or Kansas baseball, small
ball — playing the game
with the goal of moving
baserunners one base at a time —
is as routine as a lazy fly ball to
Coach Ritch Price placed a
large emphasis on the “money-
ball” brand of baseball that puts
constant pressure on an opposing
team’s defense, getting on base
early in innings and moving bas-
In this weekend’s series against
Niagara, the Jayhawks recorded 24
stolen bases, the most since Price
took over the program in 2003.
This increaseed aggressiveness
isn’t simply reckless abandon, but
a deliberate change in the team’s
“It’s been a point of emphasis,
not only stealing second but steal-
ing third,” Price said. “It’s a neces-
sity. We’re just trying to be ultra-
aggressive and read the ball in the
dirt and the guys took advantage
of the pitchers today.”
The Jayhawks have chosen to
become the baseball version of
the Mafia. They’re playing to take
what is theirs on the basepaths,
make sacrifices at the plate and
follow up with solid defense on
the opposite side of the ball.
With Purple Eagle catchers
struggling behind the plate, the
Jayhawks got their opportunity
to show just how refined they’ve
become on the basepaths. Senior
third baseman Jordan Dreiling
and sophomore outfielder Michael
Suiter are tied for the team lead
with eight of the total 44 stolen
bases on the season.
The Jayhawks are running at the
moment, stealing bases with the
precision of an Al Capone money
laundering scheme. Granted this
isn’t the heart of Big 12 play, but
aggressive, adept baserunning goes
a long way on the diamond.
Price’s emphasis on manufac-
turing runs led to this change of
mindset, but just like the Mafia, it
isn’t just a racket on the basepaths
that has led to Kansas aggressive
offense. This team sacrifices for
the good of the family at the plate.
With 15 games under their belt,
the Jayhawks have counted 18 sac-
rifice fly balls. Take into account
that the same squad hit 14 sac
flies in the entirety of last season
and you can see the improvement
from a station-to-station baseball
Not only is this team adept in
the art of deception, but it’s more
than willing to sacrifice, especially
when RBIs are on the table.
No organized crime family can
survive without solid defense.
Without the ability to protect fam-
ily interests, no amount of aggres-
sion matters. Kansas boasts a 98
percent fielding percentage while
committing 13 errors in the first
15 games of the season.
At the moment, the baseball
mentality at Hoglund Ballpark is
simple. As a player, it’s time to get
crafty on the basepaths. Sacrifice
at the plate and protect the best
interests of the family surround-
ing you.
Assertiveness on the basepaths
is an offer the Jayhawks can’t

although the Jayhawks’ two candi-
dates for Player of the Year came up
short, the Kansas basketball team raked
in a few awards when the Big 12 men’s
Basketball awards were released on Sun-
day night.
Senior center Jeff withey won the de-
fensive Player of the Year award outright
for the second consecutive season, the
frst player in Big 12 history to do so.
freshman guard Ben mclemore also
made the all-Big 12 first team along
with withey.
“we knew Ben and Jeff would be on the
frst team but I feel sometimes when you
have guys on the frst team it could split
the vote for player of the year,” Kansas
coach Bill Self said in a Kansas athletics
news release on Sunday.
mclemore was later named to the all-
Rookie team and all-Big 12 first team.
withey holds the league record for
career blocks at 289, which he reached
earlier this year against texas.
He sits on 124 blocked shots this sea-
son through 31 games, fourth in league
history for a season.
withey also made the Big 12 all-de-
fensive team and all-Big 12 first team.
Joining withey on the defensive team was
senior forward travis Releford.
“these are prestigious honors from
the coaches and to have my other team-
mates listed throughout those awards
shows how much of a team we have
been,” withey said.
Releford also made the cut for the all-
Big 12 Second team.
others on the first team were Kansas

Romero osby and oklahoma State’s mar-
cus Smart, who won Big 12 Player of the
“marcus Smart is a very deserving
player of the year in leading oklahoma
State to a good fnish in the league and
an nCaa tournament bid,” Self said.
“any of those four — Ben, Jeff, mcGruder
and Smart — could have been player of
the year.”
Smart beat out mclemore and withey
for the Big 12 Player and freshman of the
Year awards.
He’s only the third freshman to have
this accomplishment.
Kevin durant of texas and michael
Beasley of Kansas State also received
both awards when they dominated the
Big 12 in their freshman seasons.
Senior guard elijah Johnson also made

BIG 12 awaRdS
t’s the 18th green at Pebble Beach,
and you need a birdie to win. The
35-foot putt seems daunting; slightly
downhill and a large sway from right
to left. But what seems impossible is
fixed with a click of the L1-button: Tiger
Vision. And just like that, you sink your
championship-winning roll with ease.
But that’s Tiger Woods PGA Tour
2005. And you’ve run out of pizza rolls.
The real Tiger Woods has played
exceptional golf recently, winning five
of his last 19 tournaments includ-
ing this weekend’s WGC – Cadillac
Championship. This is arguably the best
run Woods has had since his hiatus from
the sport in 2009-10.
Everyone asks, “Is Tiger back?”
Longevity in the sport is certainly pos-
sible, but Woods is 37 years old. He is
much older than the new generation of
golfers. Sure, Tiger can still mash with
the best of them – he’s in the top 10 in
driving distance – but the advantages of
strength and youth are gone. The group
has caught up with the leader and now he
has to rely on other aspects of his game.
Woods still famously crushes par 5’s
and ranks number one in the world in
2013 in scoring average. Along with the
physical limitations, Woods must deal
with the rise of new competition such as
Rory McIlroy and Webb Simpson.
No doubt Woods can still hang with
the young guns, but his dominance of the
2000s may be a thing of the past.
So, perhaps it’s unfair to ask if Tiger is
back. That might not be the right ques-
Maybe the right words are, “Is he rel-
evant again?” even though he always has
been. Whether it’s in the tee box or the
tabloids, Woods has had our attention
consistently for nearly the duration of
our lifetime.
Woods just wants to return to golf ’s
top spot. Forget about the publicity, he
needs none of that. He’s had it, both good
and bad. The ultimate vindication for one
of the greatest athletes of our time will
be, simply, to become great again.
His comeback story isn’t what is
important to him. Tiger’s furious com-
petitiveness is already known — too
well. It’s about wearing red on Sundays.
It’s about getting back to the days where
those young 20-somethings fold under
the pressure from playing in Tiger’s
Still, Woods hasn’t won a major cham-
pionship since the scandal in 2009. His
last major win was the 2008 U.S. Open at
Torrey Pines.
Woods may be on the cusp of return-
ing to his own desired form. But no one
critiques Tiger harder than Tiger, and
only major championships will suffice.
Maybe the only way we can determine
if Tiger is back, is if he says, “I’m back.”

Creighton beats Wichita State to win tournament title
ASSociATed preSS
ST. LOUIS — Jahenns
Manigat scored a season-best
16 points and hit a layup with
11.5 seconds to go that gave
top-seeded Creighton just
enough to beat Wichita State
68-65 for its second straight
Missouri Valley Conference
tournament title.
Reserve Ethan Wragge hit
five 3-pointers for 15 points
to help the Bluejays overcome
an off day from star Doug
McDermott, who missed six
of his first seven shots Sunday
and was held to 14 points —
10 below his average.
Malcolm Armstead scored
a season-high 28 points with
nine rebounds for second-
seeded Wichita State (26-8).
But he missed a potential
tying 3-pointer just before the
buzzer while well-guarded by
McDermott was still hon-
ored as the tournament MVP.
He had scored 41 points eight
days earlier in Creighton’s
regular-season, title-clinching
victory against the Shockers.
Wichita State shot just 34
percent and has dropped three
of five. Cleanthony Early, who
averages 14 points off the
bench, was held to two points.
Wichita State trailed by 13
with just over five minutes to
go. The Shockers shaved the
deficit to a point with a 10-0
run capped by Armstead’s
fourth 3-pointer with 43 sec-
onds remaining. Manigat’s
layup put the Bluejays back up
by three.
Creighton was 11 for 24
from 3-point range without its
best long-range threat mak-
ing his shots. McDermott, now
tied with Wragge for the team
lead with 74 this season, was
0 for 3.
The Bluejays have won 12
MVC tournament champion-
ships, seven more than any
other school, and won in con-
secutive years for the first time
since 2002-03. Wichita State
has not won the title since
Creighton missed its first
eight shots and Wichita State its
first nine, and the teams were
a combined 2 for 25 before
settling down. McDermott
picked up two fouls in the first
half that limited him to 13

Jayhawks used strong pitch-
ing and hot bats to finish a
weekend tournament unblem-
ished for the first time this
The Jayhawks shutout four
out of their five opponents at
the Florida Atlantic Invitational.
The Jayhawks played Eastern
Michigan, Michigan State, Ball
State, Louisiana-Monroe and
the host team Florida Atlantic.
KU was in some
nail biters against
Michigan State
and Ball State
winning both
games by just
one run. Coach
Megan Smith said
she thought this
weekend’s field
was the most bal-
anced that Kansas
has faced all year.
“We were just locked in every
game from start to finish,”
Smith said. “The girls were just
really determined this weekend
to come home 5-0.”
The first game of the week-
end was against Eastern
Michigan. The Jayhawks’ will
earned their 11th rule-run vic-
tory of the season while beating
The Eagles 10-0. Senior Maggie
Hull, freshman Chaley Brickey
and freshman Alex Hugo all
cranked out three hits each.
Kelsey Kessler was dominant
in the circle striking out nine
and only walking one en route
to her second shutout of the
season. The Jayhawks broke the
game open in the top of the
fourth when they sent 13 bat-
ters to the plate, scoring seven
runs in the process.
The second game of the
weekend against Michigan State
was a pitchers duel’. Kansas out-
lasted Michigan State to win 1-0
in the bottom of the seventh.
Sophomore Alicia Pille and
MSU junior Kelly Smith dueled
for six innings and kept the
offenses at a stand still. Pille was
dominant throughout the game
finishing with her 11th career
shutout and third of the sea-
son. She only surrendered three
hits while striking out five and
walking none. Chanin Naudin
hit a double in the bottom of
the 7th and two wild pitches
later sprinted to the plate for
the game-
winning run.
State was
d e f i n i t e l y
a pitchers’
duel, and
Pille went out
and pitched
lights out
for us,” said
senior cap-
tain Mariah Montgomery. “We
were getting a couple hits here
and there but couldn’t seem to
piece any together to get runs
across the plate, but we knew
we were going to get it done
because we had the fire and
passion and didn’t want to go
into extra innings.”
The game against Ball State
was another nail biter but this
was not a pitchers duel it was
a battle of the bats. BSU and
KU had 13 hits apiece in a
game that the Jayhawks won
8-7. This game marked Smith’s
100th victory as a Jayhawk.
Montgomery went 3-4 and
recorded two homeruns and
three RBIs. Junior Alex Jones
came in to pitch the sixth and
seventh inning and pitched the
only 1-2-3 innings of the game.
Hull drove in the decisive run
in the top of the inning.
“There is no better feeling
than being able to come in, in a
clutch situation on the mound
and shut a team out,” Jones said.
“It’s always very nice to be able
to get a clutch hit, but I never
felt better than when I came in
against Ball State that night and
being able to get the win.”
The Jayhawks carried the
momentum of two hard-fought
wins into the game against FAU.
The Jayhawks beat FAU 10-0 to
earn their 12th run rule victory
of the season. The Jayhawks
captains were lights out against
the Owls. Sophomore Maddie
Stein, Montgomery and Hull
went 7-for-9 at the plate with
two doubles and four RBIs,
while Jones collected her 6th
career shutout.
“Ball State was a complete
team effort, and our bats were
on fire going into the next
game,” Montgomery said. “I felt
bad for FAU because our bats
were just on fire and pounding
the hits for us.”
The Jayhawks finished off
the weekend against Louisiana-
Monroe. The team recorded its
fourth shutout in five games
by winning 6-0. The Jayhawks
used strong pitching from Pille
once again to get the victory.
Pille carried a perfect game into
the fourth inning. Hull capped
off a strong weekend by hit-
ting a homerun and scoring
the last of the six runs against
LMU. The career RBI race is
heating up. Hull is in second
with 126, while Montgomery
is right behind her with 125.
Montgomery said she and Hull
aren’t worried about who ends
up with the most RBIs at the
end of the season and are more
focused on doing what it takes
to help the team win.

For the first time this season,
the Kansas Jayhawks finished
with a sweep after defeating the
Niagara University Purple Eagles
in four games. Kansas senior pitch-
er Thomas Taylor threw for six
innings in game four and struck
out six batters, giving him a total of
27 on the season.
Taylor was warming up for the
projected 1 p.m. start, but the game
was pushed back for more than two
hours because of a rain delay. Like
everyone else at Hoglund Ballpark,
Taylor was ready the moment he,
and everyone else, was told they
could hit the field to warm up.
“I just tried to put the conditions
out of my mind and try to throw
strikes,” Taylor said. “They’re hit-
ting in it too, so it was just as hard
for them.”
Taylor threw for six innings,
finished with six strikeouts and
allowed three runs off six hits.
Taylor ran into a little bit of trouble
in the fifth inning after Niagara
scored three runs; however, Kansas
responded in the bottom half of the
fifth with two runs and maintained
a 9-3 lead.
Sophomore center fielder
Dakota Smith and senior third
baseman Jordan Dreiling both had
three runs batted in Saturday’s 11-4
win. The 11 runs manufactured by
the Jayhawks were the most out of
any game during the series against
On top of a win, Kansas was
happy to earn its first sweep of
the season and hopes to carry that
over in an upcoming road trip,
Smith said.
“We knew we needed to come
out and get rolling,” Smith said.
“We knew we could do it this week-
end. We’ve been kind of on and off
each weekend, and we wanted to
make sure we played like we know
we can play so we can get into a
more of a fast-paced baseball. TCU
is going to be a good team, and we
want to make sure we are ready
for it.”
Kansas’ performance on the
mound was a reflection of how well
the pitchers have played all season.
But Kansas coach Ritch Price said
he wants to see improvement from
his defense before opening up Big
12 play next weekend.
“I think it was a series we needed
to take care of our business,” Price
said. “We needed to gain some
momentum going into the confer-
ence opener next weekend.”
The Jayhawks’ defense commit-
ted five errors in the series against
the Purple Eagles. Price said he
wants his team to get better and
thinks this year’s defense is better
than last year’s, which was ranked
in the top 25 on defense.
Kansas is scheduled to host
Jackson State University at 3 p.m.
Wednesday before heading to
Fort Worth, Texas to face Texas
Christian University in a three-
game series starting Friday.

Mclemore doubters be gone. The only gripe with Kansas’

without a big game on the road. after an 8-16, 23-point and
three rebound performance at Baylor there isn’t much to not
like about the kid.

WACO, Texas — Entering
Saturday’s contest at Baylor, Ben
McLemore had done everything
anyone could ask of him.
The freshman guard had mul-
tiple 30-point outings over the
season, broke Danny Manning’s
Kansas record for points by
a freshman and produced 1.75
spine-shaking dunks per game —
the latter, of course, is an unof-
ficial stat.
Yet McLemore hadn’t delivered
any of it outside of Lawrence.
That is, until he shot 8-16 from
the field and racked up 23 points
against Baylor.
It was a performance that may
have him thinking about bottling
the water in Waco and bringing
it back to Kansas, but not impres-
sive enough to get his coach’s
“He didn’t have a big game,”
Kansas coach Bill Self said of
McLemore after Kansas fell 81-58.
“He made some shots, which is
good, but I’m not going to go and
tell you that anybody on our team
had a good game.”
Still, it was the type of outing
that silenced many of McLemore’s
Even after everything he had
accomplished in Allen Fieldhouse
and on neutral floors, McLemore’s
“elite” status was questioned for
not showing up on the road.
“I was just trying to go out there
and play my game like always,”
McLemore said.
Most likely, McLemore didn’t
awe Self because he’s capable of
— and should be — posting these
numbers on a nightly basis.
Perhaps that’s also why fresh-
man forward Perry Ellis received
the bulk of Self ’s postgame com-
pliments. No one saw his 12-point
performance coming.
“I thought he was the best play-
er for us today,” Self said of Ellis.
When Kevin Young picked up
two fouls within 24 seconds early
in the first half, Self didn’t have
much of a choice but to turn to his
unproven rookie.
The highly touted Wichita
recruit hadn’t quite made the tran-
sition to the college game yet.
So when he helped bring Kansas
within six points of tying the game
in the second period, it was more
than enough to make Self smile.
“He attacked them,” Self said.
“The guys that he was scoring
over, under or around were legiti-
mate shot blockers that were much
And yet, they couldn’t stop Ellis
as he bobbed and weaved his way
through traffic down low.
It was only the second time
Ellis has scored in double digits in
conference play, but it may be the
boost Kansas needs heading into
tournament season.
“It definitely does give me con-
fidence,” Ellis said. “I was just
trying to come in and just play as
aggressive as I can.”
As was McLemore. And with
both hitting a new stride, it’s only
going to be harder to amaze Self.

Junior Markisha Hawkins walked
into practice last Monday with a job
to do. There was just one problem:
the 5’9” guard
couldn’t do it
without crack-
ing a smile.
She looked
to a group of
reporters and
said with a
slight grin on
her face, “You
need to talk to
her today?”
She’s talking about senior guard
Angel Goodrich, who rarely goes
a day without being asked for an
interview. Hawkins just wants to
help the seniors in any way that
she can.
“OK, I’ll see what I can do,”
Hawkins said as she walked off in
Of course, it’s just a joke.
Hawkins has had a good laugh
from pretending to be the press
secretary for Goodrich for most of
the season. She hasn’t had much of
a real role on the team until now.
“Just sitting,” Hawkins said, “and
learning from what my teammates
do. I watched every game.”
But that’s all starting to change.
Before Kansas was eliminated
from the Big 12 tournament with a
loss to Iowa State in the quarterfi-
nals, Hawkins had been on a three-
game scoring outburst where she
averaged 12 points per game.
If that average alone isn’t impres-
sive, it began in the 28th game of the
season, at Oklahoma. Before then,
Hawkins had only scored 11 points
in all 27 games for the Jayhawks.
She had only received playing time
in a third of those games.
So, how does a player go from
the last player on the bench to the
team’s starting shooting guard?
“Just staying positive and being
patient,” Hawkins said.
A year ago, Hawkins, from Little
Rock, Ark., signed with Kansas
coach Bonnie Henrickson, leaving
Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas.
There, she was an honorable men-
tion on the NJCAA All-American
list and averaged 15.4 points per
Grades were not the issue for
Hawkins. She took the junior col-
lege route because she wasn’t satis-
fied with the colleges that offered
her a scholarship after high school.
She went to Tyler to prove her-
self and ensure that she ended up
at the NCAA program where she
Her teammates and coaches
call her “Hawk,” which suggests
Hawkins is fitting in well within the
Kansas locker room.
Despite the lack of playing time
with the Jayhawks, Hawkins contin-
ued to practice in high spirits every
day with the intention of learning
something new and improving her
“All year she has asked really
good questions,” Henrickson said.
“She hasn’t sat there and felt sorry
for herself.”
Hawkins was shooting free
throws at practice last Monday
when Henrickson approached her
and said she would be in the start-
ing lineup on Senior Night against
TCU, after she scored 11 points
against Oklahoma.
Hawkins turned out to be just
the piece Kansas needed for a win
on senior night. She had 15 points,
4 rebounds and 2 assists in the
74-67 victory.
“She brought a spark,”
Henrickson said after the game.
“She brought energy.”
Nothing seemed to make
Hawkins happier that night than
when the game was over and the
Senior Night win was official.
The 15 points that Hawkins
scored were an afterthought,
though she admits that even she was
surprised by the scoring outburst.
Hawkins just couldn’t see the three
seniors leave Allen Fieldhouse with
a loss in their final home game.
“I was so happy that we won the
game and could make the seniors
happy on senior day,” Hawkins
She ran and met Goodrich
at center court after the victory,
and wrapped her arm around the
“I was like ‘I told you I was
going to do this for you,’” Hawkins
said to Goodrich. “It was just a
happy moment.”
It’s not uncommon to see
Hawkins alone in the gym nearly
a half hour before practice. She
has worked hard for these happy
moments, and hopes that they will
keep coming.
The seniors recognize the effort
that Hawkins has put in during
practice this season and appreci-
ated the spark she provided them
on Senior Night.
“She’s been working hard, and
has been consistent,” senior guard
Monica Engelman said. “She gave
us a little something, and we need-
ed that.”
Senior forward Carolyn Davis
said that Hawkins earned her spot
in the starting lineup. Goodrich
seemed especially happy with the
impressive performance from
“I’m proud of Markisha,”
Goodrich said. “She played real-
ly well. She was aggressive and
attacked and knocked down shots.
I’m so proud of her.”
The next day Hawkins sits in the
practice gym alone, waiting for the
rest of her team to get ready for an
afternoon practice.
A smile crosses her face when
she’s asked how it feels to hear the
seniors say they are proud of her.
“It feels great,” Hawkins says.
“It’s just about the seniors right
now. Just doing whatever it takes
for them to just keep it rolling and
get win after win, but it starts in
practice. Seeing a smile on their
face makes me real happy, so what-
ever they need me to do, I’ll do.”
After Hawkins’ recent perfor-
mance, the Jayhawks will likely
need her for more than just setting
up Goodrich’s interviews.
For now, Kansas is on the bub-
ble for the NCAA tournament.
The seniors still aren’t sure how
their college careers will end, but
Markisha Hawkins is doing any-
thing she can to help send them out
on a positive note.

PHOENIX — Adam Jones dou-
bled in the tying and go-ahead
runs in the eighth inning, Eric
Hosmer hit a three-run double in
the ninth and the United States
beat Canada 9-4 on Sunday to
advance to the second round of
the World Baseball Classic.
Down to their last several outs,
the U.S. trailed 3-2 after seven
innings before breaking loose.
Team USA and Italy advanced
in Group D while Canada and
Mexico were eliminated.
Jones and Hosmer both had a
rough week at the plate but came
through with the United States
on the brink of what would have
been a humbling loss. Jones’ hit
was his second in nine at-bats.
Hosmer was 3 for 13.
Gold Glove second baseman
Brandon Phillips contributed,
too, making a diving stop to
prevent Canada from tying it in
the eighth.
Heath Bell pitched a scoreless
seventh to get the victory for
manager Joe Torre’s team. Jimmy
Henderson took the loss.
Canada’s Michael Saunders,
of the Seattle Mariners, hit a
two-run homer off starter Derek
Holland and was chosen the
Group D MVP, going 8 for 11 in
the tournament.
The United States finished
group play tied with Italy at 2-1
but gets the No. 1 seed because
of its 6-2 win over Italy. The
U.S. meets the loser of Sunday’s
Dominican Republic-Puerto
Rico game Tuesday in Miami.
David Wright, whose grand
slam lifted the U.S. past Italy
Saturday night, doubled and
walked three times. Ben Zobrist
had three hits, none of which left
the infield.
Canada, coming off a 10-3
win over Mexico that featured a
bruising ninth-inning brawl, fin-
ished 1-2. The Canadians have
not made it out of the first round
for any of the three WBCs.
But they looked in great shape
much of the afternoon against
the United States, which was
looking to avoid its worst show-
ing ever in the tournament. The
Americans made it to the second
round in 2006 and the semifinals
in 2009.
For the third straight game,
the U.S. fell behind early.
Justin Morneau, who was 8 for
12 in the tournament for Canada,
doubled to start the second, then
Saunders hit Holland’s 1-0 pitch
into the bullpen down the right
field line to make it 2-0.
The U.S. tied it with two runs
in the fourth, one unearned.
Joe Mauer led off with a single
and Wright walked. Zobrist put
down a near-perfect bunt for
a base hit, with third baseman
Taylor Green throwing wildly
to first and allowing a run to
score. Jones’ sacrifice fly to cen-
ter brought in the tying run.
Green, playing third for
Canada because Brett Lawrie was
hurt just before the WBC began,
also had an error in the second
when he dropped Zobrist’s high
pop fly ball in the bright sun-
Canada regained the lead
at 3-2 in the sixth. Joey Votto
drew a leadoff walk from reliev-
er Glen Perkins, took second
on Morneau’s single. Saunders
struck out looking and Chris
Robinson flied out, advancing the
runner to third. Adam Loewen’s
first-pitch single brought Votto
Mauer opened the eighth with
a single, then Wright walked.
Torre made an aggressive move
when, with Willie Bloomquist
pinch running for Mauer, he
sent both runners moving on
Henderson’s 1-2 pitch to Jones.
Jones connected, bringing both
runners home. Shane Victorino
singled Jones home to make it
Canada made it a one-run
game in its half of the eighth but
would have tied it had it not been
for a spectacular defensive play
by Phillips. His diving stop of
Loewen’s bases-loaded grounder
allowed one run to score, but
kept the U.S. in the lead.
The U.S. broke it open off
Scott Matheson and closer John
Axford in the ninth.
Phillips started it with a dou-
ble. Jonathan Lucroy had an
RBI single, then Wright walked
once again. Axford came on
and allowed the infield single
to Zobrist. Jones struck out but
Hosmer, a late addition to the
team when Matt Teixeira was
injured, cleared the bases with a
shot to deep center.
Torre benched Miami’s
dynamic young slugger Giancarlo
Stanton in favor of Victorino in
left field. He also moved Ryan
Braun to designated hitter and
put Zobrist in right. Mauer, the
DH in the first two games, was
the catcher. Stanton was hitless in
the first two games, although he
did have a pair of deep fly balls
in the opening loss to Mexico.

Kansas women claim second at
NCAA Indoor Track Championship
The Kansas women’s track and field
team took second place on Saturday
at the NCAA Indoor Chamionships.
For the second-straight season, the
Jayhawks finished runner-up at the
NCAA Indoor Championship.
“It was a tremendous weekend
with some great performances,” said
coach Stanley Redwine. “Having
three national champions is amaz-
ing. The athletes and the coaches
have done a great job of representing
Kansas well and it’s great to again see
all their hard work paying off.”
Leading the way for the Jayhawks
are national champions Andrea
Geubelle and Natalia Bartnovskaya.
Geubelle headed into the meet on
Saturday coming off her first long
jump national title from Friday night,
and wanted to make NCAA history
by having both the indoor long jump
and triple jump titles. Geubelle had
four jumps over 45 feet in her six
Geubelle looked comfortable all
the way to the finals, having the over-
all lead heading into her last three
jumps. San Diego State’s Shanika
Thomas kept Geubelle on her toes,
finishing only a centimeter behind
her. Geubelle, on her fourth attempt,
had the largest jump of her career
with a mark of 14.18 meters (46-
6.25 ft) and broke her own school
record. It was also the fourth-longest
in NCAA history and was two inches
shy of tying the American record.
Geubelle became the fourth woman
in NCAA history to win champion-
ships in both the long jump and
triple jump at the NCAA indoor
meet since 2003.
Bartnovskaya also had career best
performances in the pole vault. She
vaulted to five-straight clearances,
without a foul, and was the only com-
petitor to do so. With the bar up at
4.45 meters (14-7.25 ft.) and clearing
it on her second attempt, she earned
a new career-best and broke her own
school record. This mark also put
Bartnovskaya at the eighth-highest
indoor vaulter in NCAA history
Junior Diamond Dixon also com-
peted for a repeat national champion
in the 400 meters. Dixon entered the
final with the seventh fastest quali-
fying time, with 52.77 seconds on
Friday. She finished the finals on
Saturday with a time of 52.38, a
season-best time with a sixth-place
finish. This is also her third straight
First Team All-American honor in
the 400 meters.
Sophomore Lindsay Vollmer
competed in her first Indoor
Championship meet and was looking
to earn a top spot in the pentath-
lon. Vollmer had already broken the
school record twice this season and
had a personal best of 4,123 points.
She is also the 2013 Big 12 champion
in the event. On Saturday, Vollmer
recorded three personal bests in the
five events. She tied a career best in
the high jump (1.72 m [5-7.75 ft.]),
threw the shot put to a new indoor
personal best of 12.10 meters (39-8.5
ft.) and had a career best in the long
jump (5.87 meters [19-3.25 ft.). The
sophomore finished fifth and was
30 plus points ahead of her personal
Denesha Morris, Paris Daniels,
Taylor Washington and Diamond
Dixon ended the meet by helping
their team’s chance at placing higher
in the women’s 4x400 meter relay.
They finished third in their heat with
a time of 3:34.91, finishing eighth-
place and earning the final point for
the Kansas women’s track & field
team. This proved significant because
the Kansas women claimed second
place with 44 points, right in front of
third-place LSU who finished with
43 points.
The Jayhawks earned 44 total
points, which is the most ever scored
at an indoor national meet. The
Oregon Ducks finished first over-
all with a total of 56 points. The
Kansas men and women’s track &
field team have three weeks off until
the outdoor season begins at the
Texas Relays in Austin, Texas from
March 27-30.

Jayhawks fall to sooners in frst
conference match of season
During the weekend, the
Jayhawk tennis team traveled to
Norman, Okla. for its first Big 12
match of the spring. The Jayhawks
lost to No. 40 Oklahoma 5-2.
From the first set, Kansas faced
an uphill battle. It only managed
one win in doubles play and two
in singles play. There were only
a few bright spots for Kansas on
Freshman Anastasija Trubica
continues to be undefeated in
singles play this spring; on Friday,
she advanced to 6-0, which is the
best record on the team. Junior
Paulina Los lost her singles match,
but she and doubles partner soph-
omore Maria Belen Ludueña were
able to get their seventh win of
the season.
Going into the match, Kansas’
doubles play was going to have
to carry the team, as it has in
almost every victory for the team
this year. This posed a chal-
lenge as the Sooners trotted out
the No. 49 doubles duo in the
country in Hermon Brhane and
Whitney Ritchie. Subsequently,
the Jayhawks were not able to win
more than one match in doubles
play for only the third time this
Oklahoma’s Brhane is also the
No. 105 singles player in the coun-
try. She defeated Kansas freshman
Maria Jose Cardona in straight
sets (6-0, 6-2).
The Jayhawks were scheduled
to play Oklahoma State on Sunday,
but the weather had other plans,
canceling the match. The game is
scheduled for later this season on
a date to be determined.
