THE REASON FOR MOST TRAFFIC

VIOLATIONS:
“A lot of what students get
pulled over for has to do with
inattention,” Trent McKinley,
Lawrence Police Department
public afairs ofcer, said.
“Someone was distracted with
something in the car, and they
didn’t see the stop sign. You
also fnd out, lots of times,
that people didn’t mean to be
speeding, and they were just in
a hurry to get to class or work.
Sometimes they happened to
wake up late, or it was just a
matter of poor planning. It can
be difcult to say.”

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU GET
PULLED OVER:
“Being polite and all of that
good stuf is probably going to
beneft more than swearing at
the ofcer, but if some people
have a question about where
the speed limit sign was, or
a stop sign that they missed,
then that is something we
don’t mind,” McKinley said.
Jo Hardesty, director and
managing attorney at the
University’s Legal Services for
Students, also had some sug-
gestions to keep in mind re-
garding search and seizure:
“Te student has the right
not to consent to the search.
Te best way to handle it is
to respectfully decline the re-
quest. Te ofcer might go
ahead and search anyway if
he believes there is probable
cause that there is evidence
of a crime therein. However,
that search can be challenged
later in court. Do not try to
resist the search even if there
is no consent. If the student
consents, he gives up his right
to challenge the legality of the
search. Among other reasons
not to consent to search, the
driver may not be aware of
any contraband lef in his ve-
hicle by any prior passengers,”
Hardesty said.
WHAT RIGHTS SHOULD STU-
DENTS BE MOST CONSCIOUS OF
WHILE PULLED OVER BY A POLICE
OFFICER?
“Students should remember
they have the right not to say
anything about the alleged
ofense and the right not to
consent to a search of the auto-
mobile,” Hardesty said. “Tey
should be prepared to give the
ofcer their driver’s license
and insurance information.”
FORGET ABOUT THE MIRANDA
RIGHTS MYTH:
“Tere seems to be a com-
mon misconception among
college students and other
defendants that the charge or
charges will be dismissed if
the ofcer did not read them
their rights,” Hardesty said.
“Te answer to that is there is
no requirement for an ofcer
to read an accused his rights
when arrested or when the
ofcer is doing on-the-scene
investigation. Te rights only
have to be read to the accused
before any custodial interroga-
tion. If not read prior to cus-
todial interrogation, then any
statements made by the ac-
cused could be suppressed and
not used at trial. More ofen
than not, there is no custodial
interrogation and the charge
or arrest is based upon other
evidence so no rights are read
to the accused.”
THE LAWRENCE POLICE DEPART-
MENT DOES NOT HAVE A QUOTA:
Now through April 18, KU
Parking is ofering a prorated
refund on parking permits for
about 300 students on Daisy
Hill.
With the new construction
beginning on March 16, many
students will no longer have a
parking space. From March 16
to April 18, about 334 park-
ing spaces on Daisy Hill will
be closed of. From April 18
to May 19, 227 more spaces
will be closed of. While these
lots are closed, two temporary
gravel parking lots holding
65 cars total will be available.
One temporary lot will be on
the east side of Templin, while
the other will be attached to
the north side of the Lied Cen-
ter parking lot. Overall, this
means Daisy hill will loss 496
parking spaces.
Diana Robertson, director
of Student Housing, said there
are about 50 parking spaces
being used in the Lied Center
parking lot now meaning there
are 300 more spaces that can
be used for students.
Loic Njiakin, a sophomore
from Gardner, said her frst re-
action to this information was
“Well, that stinks.”
“I think that’s too far,” Nji-
akin siad. “It’s hard enough
fnding spaces now because
there is not enough space. I
can’t imagine how difcult it
will be now.”
KU Parking is trying to ac-
commodate students by of-
fering refunds. Students have
two options: Leave their cars
at home afer spring break
or switch to a Park and Ride
permit. If students decide to
leave their cars at home, they
may receive a $44 refund by
turning in their Daisy Hill
parking permit to KU Park-
ing by March 16. Tose who
decide to turn in their Daisy
Hill parking permit by April
18 may receive a $22 refund.
Students who still need their
cars and decide to switch to
a Park and Ride pass may re-
ceive a $20 refund if they do
so by March 16. Students who
wait until April 18 to switch to
Park and Ride may receive a
$10 refund.
Students with a Lied Center
permit who turn in their park-
ing permit by March 16 may
receive a $30 refund and stu-
dents who wait until April 18
may receive a $15 refund. Keep
in mind, refunds are done on a
frst-come, frst-served basis
and will only be given to the
frst 300 students.
Robertson also said tempo-
rary parking passes will be is-
sued for students who want a
refund but would like to keep
their cars on Daisy Hill until
March 16 or April 18.
“We are trying to fnd a way
to make this as fair as possi-
ble,” said Robertson. “We re-
gret the inconvenience, but it’s

Know your facts about DUI, traffic violations
DUI reinstatement
fees raised in Kansas
LAWRENCE STATE
AMIE JUST/KANSAN
This car may have a parking spot on Daisy Hill now, but come March, the person who owns this car may not be so fortunate.
Governor Sam Brownback
signed his frst bill of the
2014 legislative session in
Topeka on Feb. 3. Te bill
contains amended statutes
that increase the fees asso-
ciated with reinstating an
individual’s driver’s license
afer both driving under the
infuence and refusing a test
to determine the presence
of drugs or alcohol in the
system while operating a ve-
hicle.
Reinstatement fees give an
individual the ability to re-
store his or her license. Te
fees have been doubled for
each individual DUI con-
viction. Tere’s now a $200
reinstatement fee on a frst
occurrence increased from
$100. Te reinstatement fee
associated with refusing to
take an alcohol breath test
is now $600 on frst occur-
rence, increased from $400.
Chase Fraser, a junior from
Lawrence, said he thinks the
fees are appropriate.
“I think that’s completely
fne,” Fraser said. “Basically,
when you choose to drive
under the infuence, you’re
taking whoever else is on
the road’s life into your own
hands, so as far as fnes go,
I don’t really think there is a
cap.”
Nearly one in three Amer-
icans are afected by drunk
driving in their lifetime, ac-
cording to the Kansas High-
way Patrol.
Locally, according to the
City of Lawrence’s website,
there were a total of 632 DUI
violations in Douglas Coun-
ty in 2013 — that’s almost
two citations a day.
In addition to increased
fees, the bill will establish a
$1 fee to every driver’s license
issued to go toward a driving
under the infuence fund
that focuses on purchasing
blood alcohol content test-
ing equipment as well as
establishing drivers safety
and breath alcohol programs
throughout the state.
FINES
Speeding fines are an initial $50 for 1 to 10 mph over
posted speed limit, and then increase by $6 with each
additional mph over 10. Also remember that fines dou-
ble in construction zones and school zones.
Drivers under 21 found to be operating a vehicle
with a blood alcohol content of over .02 risk a 30-day
driving suspension followed by a 330 day restricted
privileges license as well as a fine.
Statistics
1 in 3 Americans will be affected by impaired,
drunk driving in their lifetime.
There are 42,000 motor-vehicle deaths each year,
16,000 of them involve driving under the influence.
That’s 38 percent of motor-vehicle deaths that
could be avoided.
In America, 720 people (one every two minutes)
are injured and 48 people (one every half-hour) are
killed in an alcohol-related crash each day.
The following is according ot kansashighwaypatrol.org
Tips
Tips provided by online-paralegal-programs.com
Be polite and respectful while keeping hands in view.
You can ask for the officer’s reason for traffic stop, and you may ask to leave if police are unable to give a reason.
The police may request you to do something, you can ask if that is an order.
If you believe one of your rights was violated, report it.
You do have the right to refuse a search, it does not result in you being guilty, nor can a police officer detain you because of your refusal.
You also may refuse to take a breathalyzer, but if you refuse, your license will be suspended automatically, so it is best to stay under the limit.

Students lose $20.50 worth of instruction per
credit hour. If you are taking 15 credits, you’re
losing about $123.
*Credit calculated per week; i.e. one credit hour
class meets one time per week. Therefore $307.50
cost per credit divided by the number of weeks in the
semester (15).
15 credits/5 = 3 (average amount of
class hours per day)
3 hours x 2 days = 6 credit hours
6 credit hours x $20.50 = $123
How many students on
campus?
There are 27,939 students enrolled
at the University of Kansas.
How much would the total
cost be for the student
population?
If each student lost $123,
$3,436,497 would have been lost.

About 427 people worked on

“On Tuesday, we were opened normal hours at 10, but we
ended up closing at one. Our main concern was the safety
of our employees. We wanted to make sure they could go
home safely. We did close down early since it was snowing
so much. On Wednesday we were open normal business
hours and we did see a decent flow of traffic. We thought
it was because girls were getting cabin fever, they wanted
to get out, grab some coffee, hang out with their girl-
friends, so we did have decent traffic flow all day.”

NATIONAL
‘American Cool’ portrait exhibit opens in DC
WASHINGTON — James
Dean is leaning back, drawing
on a cigarette, looking away
from the camera as a mirror
behind him in the black and
white photograph creates a
shadow image of a good-look-
ing young man who, even in a
quiet moment, seems remote,
resistant to what's expected of
him. He's cool.
But who else is? What does
it take? And what is it about
America that's defned cool to
the world?
Te National Portrait Gallery
has decided it knows, and on
Friday it opened a unique ex-
hibit, "American Cool," with
100 photographs of American
men and women who defne
"cool."
"'American Cool' is about
America's greatest cultural
export — cool — and who
embodies it," Kim Sajet, the
director of the National Por-
trait Gallery, said at the media
preview for the exhibit.
Certainly Dean, during his
brief life, created a new Amer-
ican icon — the rebellious teen
— in the stifing, strict atmo-
sphere of the 1950s. He de-
fned himself in the flm "Reb-
el Without a Cause," his most
celebrated role, before dying in
1955 at age 24 in a crash while
driving his Porsche.
And being cool, according to
this exhibit, is very much tied
to being a rebel.
Most of the personalities
photographed here are in the
arts: actors Marlon Brando,
Paul Newman and Audrey
Hepburn; jazz musicians
Miles Davis, Telonious Monk
and Charlie Parker; singers
Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley
and Chrissie Hynde; painters
Georgia O'Keefe and Jackson
Pollock.
A few sports fgures make the
grade, such as boxer Muham-
mad Ali and basketball legend
Michael Jordan.
But there are no elected pol-
iticians or anyone from the
business world beyond Apple's
co-founder, the late Steve Jobs.
Te show's curators, Joel Di-
nerstein and Frank Goodyear
III, who described themselves
in an interview as cultural his-
torians, are quick to say they
aren't making subjective judg-
ments. Tey aren't deciding
who's in with the in crowd.
Tey've laid out four criteria
to be cool, and each of the 100
photos picked for the show
had to have at least three of the
elements:
"An original artistic vision
carried of with a signature
style; the embodiment of cul-
tural rebellion or transgression
for a given generation; iconic
power, or instant visual recog-
nition; and a recognized cul-
tural legacy."
"Tey are the successful reb-
els of American culture," said
Goodyear, who added that
the criteria came down to be-
ing "edgy, dark, mysterious."
Tey were also successful at
what they did, not necessarily
in making a lot of money but
in excelling at singing, writing,
painting, performing.
Goodyear, a former curator
of photographs at the gallery,
is now a co-director of the
Bowdoin College Museum of
Art in Maine.
"Cool is an American con-
cept," said Dinerstein, a pro-
fessor at Tulane University
who teaches a class called
"Te History of Being Cool in
America." "It comes out of our
culture, being middle class and
creating a new persona. It is a
singular American self-identi-
fcation."
Te curators have even pin-
pointed the birth of cool:
"'Cool' was a 1940s jazz slang
term," Dinerstein said. "Cool
was born in New York City
and became a national sensa-
tion and a global obsession."
Lester Young, the Mississip-
pi-born jazz tenor saxophonist
who honed his craf in Kansas
City, would say "I'm cool" and
wear a porkpie hat and sun-
glasses in the darkened clubs,
creating a style standard for
musicians for generations.

So I just tried to click the newspa-

have done some brain damage.
I put way too much emotional
investment into KU basketball.
To the guy who helped me get my
car out of the snow: Thank You! To

If your high school color was
purple you shouldn’t be allowed to
wear any of its apparel.
It’s embarassing when the oppos-

Resolutions for change can be made any time
L
et’s start this article with
a mild interrogation.
How many of you are
still working toward your
New Year’s resolutions? I’m
guessing not many. I doubt a
lot of you even bothered and
I don’t blame you. New Year’s
resolutions are notorious for
being impossible to fulfll.
In fact, researchers at the
University of Scranton found
that only about 8 percent of
people keep theirs. I have a
few theories as to why this is,
as well as better ways to go
about changing yourself.
To start, New Year’s
resolutions are arbitrary. Why
do we choose to suddenly
make changes to ourselves
on this specifc date? Why
not any other time? Tat’s
the problem. Many people
make these goals, I believe,
because society tells them
they should, not because they
believe that they need or
want something diferent.
Tere’s defnitely a tinge
of stigma associated with
having no resolution for
the New Year, and it reeks
of “having no goals for
your life.” But that’s not
how change works. You
can’t change someone else,
especially by guilt. Te very
essence of these resolutions
is rooted in a fabricated goal
that is manufactured simply
to meet society’s expectation
of what you ought to be.
Another issue is that people
take on too much at a time.
I’ll use myself as an example
here. I wanted to transform
my health: weekly cardio
exercise, correct my posture,
take care of my skin, drink
more water every day, and
so on. Not only were these
goals vague, there were just
too many of them to start
with. Social Psychologist
Roy Baumeister has shown
that your mind has a limited
amount of “decision capital”
allotted for each day. Afer
a long period of making
decisions, your prefrontal
cortex becomes exhausted
and is unable to make good
decisions. If you seek to
wake up each morning as
a totally diferent person,
you’d have to consciously
think about everything
you do throughout the day
and quickly burn out that
decision capital. Point is, you
can’t do everything; some
things will be compromised.
Pick one goal that you think
is most important to you and
you will be more likely to see
that change through.
Perhaps you do know
exactly what you want but
still fnd it difcult to stay
committed. Reminding
yourself of why you are doing
it and how it will change your
life for the better is a helpful
way to stay on track. If you
can’t answer those questions,
perhaps you should
consider problem number
one. Psychologist Susan
Morales also points out that
envisioning yourself carrying
out the new behavior can
help your mind adjust to the
change. Take the classic gym
resolution for example, many
people envision themselves
with a transformed body
image, but what would be
more benefcial is envisioning
your day-to-day routine with
the gym part added in.
Lastly, there’s nothing
wrong with having a little
accountability. Couples
and friends who work out
together are more likely to
stick to their plan than those
who don’t. Finding someone
who shares the same goals
as you will better ensure that
you can reach your goals.
It’s not too late to start on
a resolution if you actually
want to — to heck with the
arbitrary date. If having a
mid-February resolution
means you get results, then
that’s much better than those
broken January dreams.

LIFE
I
t seems like every time I
get on Facebook, there’s
another engagement to
congratulate someone on. I
can’t scroll down my news
feed without seeing at least
one fashy diamond ring
and girls wooing over it.
It’s hard to fnd half of my
friends from high school on
Facebook when I’m typing
in their “old” last name on
my search bar. Should I be
worried that I don’t have a
ring on my fnger? And an
even better question — why
do I feel like in college it’s
so hard to meet a guy who
is ready to put a ring on my
fnger?
Te answer is simple: It isn’t
the time yet. We may feel like
a life-long love is everywhere
except with us, but the truth
is our generation is waiting
longer than any generation
ever has to get married. Te
average age for marriage is 27
for women and 29 for men
— four to seven years afer
college. We have time to get
our own lives together, and we
should use it. Sure, you can’t
control when you meet “the
one,” but don’t go out looking
either.
Look at it like this, we have
years to focus on ourselves,
our career and our dreams.
We go to college for four,
maybe more, years to get
us on the right track to
accomplish those dreams. Yes,
getting married can be a part
of your plan, but don’t let it
be your entire plan. A good
friend once told me, “Your
partner shouldn’t be your
main course; they should just
be your dessert.” Tis isn’t to
say that those who are already
married are wrong. Tat
situation has its advantages, as
does waiting.
And waiting is what most
of us will have to do whether
we want to or not. Take
advantage of the wait, and
prepare yourself for the right
person. You know what’s
better than meeting a partner
with a successful career?
Being the partner with a
successful career. Don’t worry
about fnding the right one, or
even just fnding one. What
they say is true; when the time
is right it will happen. Until
then, take advantage of being
single.
Kayla Soper is a senior from
Junction City studying journalism
and political science.
F
illed with forums,
comment sections
and a barrage
of vitriolic emails, the
Internet is host to millions
of meaningless and
infuriating arguments. A
breed of those debates is
growing and I’ve found that
the “educated discussion”
on gender politics is doing
way more harm than good.
Let me lay out the
battlefeld and combatants
that make up the Web’s
gender politics.
On one end of this
spectrum is the radical
feminist movement. Tese
radical feminists (rad-fems)
have set up shop on Tumblr.
At the other extreme is a
group who has labeled itself
as the Men’s Rights Activists
and is mostly found on
boards like 4chan as well as
certain parts of Reddit.
Tese are by no means
the standard-bearers for the
greater feminist movement
or men in general. Tese
are just the citizens of the
Internet who’ve banded
together efciently, angrily
and loudly.
Day in and day out the
rad-fems traded image
macros with stories of
oppression and circulated
jokes poking fun at
demographics that carry
more “privilege” than
others.
Te Men’s Rights Activists
(MRAs) posted stories of
their own oppression felt
as men, derided radical
feminists from the past and
made their own jokes about
the opposition.
To a point, these two
communities were in a
dissonant harmony. Tey
hated each other based on
their identities, but mostly
kept to their own quarters.
Until disaster struck.
On Reddit, boards
sprang up that parodied
and lampooned Tumblr
feminists. In a counter
attack that involved legal
action, “Tumblrites” helped
bring down a photo-sharing
board on Reddit that
hosted pictures of women
unaware they were being
photographed, labeling the
board sexist, creepy and
illegal.
Te two communities
clashed on multiple fronts
until fnally, the discussion
of the efect of gender on
politics and society lost itself
in the rad-fem and MRA
labels. All of the debate
turned into insults against
the other side and soon the
two groups refused to even
communicate.
Up until this point, the
two factions were hardly
making an impact outside
of their small and isolated
communities. But that didn’t
last. Tey spread into other,
greater boards, hurling
angry rhetoric and gendered
insults in forums that were
hashing out economics and
sharing goofy videos.
Tat’s when this whole
debacle caught my attention.
When my Facebook feed
was being overloaded with
links from Jezebel that were
written to stir up the rad-
fem core and generate page
views.
When I saw fedora-
clad MRAs spouting that
bisexuality is a myth and
all women are gold-
diggers.
When I noticed that
none of these people
were interested in solving
the problems they kept
bringing up; that they just
craved the feeling of being
righteous and indignant.
I realized that we are
living in a post-apocalyptic
landscape of gender politics.
A few extremist groups
made up of a handful of
loud and obnoxious people
have scraped a dirty bomb
together, detonated it and
irradiated every inch of
productive discussion.
Anymore, it’s not worth
starting to discuss the topic
of gender for fear of being
labeled, shut down and
ignored.
Tat argumentative
blockade is criminal.
Unlike most problems, I
don’t have a solution. I have
no idea where we would
begin to reverse this trend.
Te whole system has been
corrupted so totally and
radically that my best idea is
to simply shut them out and
ignore them.
But when the MRAs and
rad-fems come blazing
into a discussion with
their fags held high and
language loaded, they’re
simply impossible to ignore.
When the greater debate is
a contest on who can be the
most ofended and insulted,
that’s when we’ve hit rock
bottom.

Lady Antebellum will perform at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo., during their “Take Me Downtown” tour on
Feb. 15. The group has sold more than 10 million albums.
J
anuary proved to be a
wonderful month in the
world of music. We saw
many quality releases and live
concerts. Afer such a great
start to the year, February is
shaping up to be another excit-
ing month in music as well.

ISAIAH RASHAD — “CILVIA DEMO”
Although this album was
technically released in January,
it’s defnitely worth a listen if
you haven’t done so already.
Rashad is the latest signee
to Top Dawg Entertainment
(TDE), which is signifcant be-
cause of his label-mates Ken-
drick Lamar and Schoolboy
Q, and because this is his frst
project with the label. Because
of his label, Rashad was held
to very high expectations and
for the most part he exceeded
them. Te album is great, es-
pecially considering it’s his frst
project. Te album is much
more soulful than most of
what TDE has released, which
lends to Rashad’s lyricism.
KID CUDI — “SATELLITE FLIGHT:
THE JOURNEY TO MOTHER MOON”
Cudi’s 2013 “Indicud” had
its ups and downs, but it didn’t
quite compare to his previous
work. With his latest efort
“Satellite Flight: Te Journey
to Mother Moon,” Cudi hopes
to get back on track. Te
album is ofen described as
a link between 2010’s “Man
on the Moon II: Te Legend
of Mr. Rager” and his future
album “Man on the Moon III.”
Te album was originally go-
ing to be an EP, but it recently
got upgraded to a full length
LP. Cudi himself tweeted that
the album will be releasing in
February, but there’s no ofcial
date. It’d be worthwhile to keep
an eye on this album because
of how good most of Cudi’s
previous work is.
YOUNG FATHERS — “DEAD”
Young Fathers is a breath
of fresh air in the world of
hip-hop. Tey’re an alternative
hip-hop group based out of
Scotland and released their
frst studio album earlier this
month. One of the members is
originally from Africa, another
has Nigerian parents, but was
born in Scotland and the third
member is from Scotland.
Because of this diversity, their
music has infuences from tra-
ditional African music as well
as Scottish music, and it all
comes together seamlessly. If
you’re interested in this, it’d be
worthwhile to check out their
previous projects “Tape One”
and “Tape Two,” which can be
found online for free.
SCHOOLBOY Q — “OXYMORON”
Schoolboy Q’s “Oxymoron”
is without a doubt the most
anticipated album in rap right
now. Over the past year Q
has been building hype with
many singles, all of which were
fantastic. Afer label-mate
Kendrick Lamar’s released his
instant classic debut album
“good kid, m.A.A.d city” in
2012, fans are eagerly antic-
ipating what’s next for Top
Dawg Entertainment. Afer
many delays, “Oxymoron” will
fnally hit iTunes and store
shelves Feb. 25. Even though
each single has been great,
“Oxymoron” could be a huge
disappointment or a triumph,
hopefully the latter.

YOUNG THUG — “DANNY GLOVER”
Although his name is horrif-
ically generic and stereotypical,
Young Tug is a rising star in
rap music. “Danny Glover”
has been out for a few months,
but it’s recently getting a lot
of buzz with notable artists
such as Drake and Kanye West
supporting it. It wouldn’t be
surprising if “Danny Glover” is
the next rap hit along the lines
of Chief Keef ’s “I Don’t Like”
and Waka Flocka’s “Hard in
da Paint.” It’s defnitely worth
a listen if that’s what you’re
interested in.
LADY ANTEBELLUM LIVE
AT THE SPRINT CENTER
IN KANSAS CITY, MO.
Seven-time Grammy award-
winning trio Lady Antebel-
lum is bringing its “Take Me
Downtown” tour to the Sprint
Center in Kansas City, Mo.,
on Feb. 15. Te group has sold
more than 12.5 singles and 10
million albums, and they are
great live performers. If this
is something you’re in to, this
concert is highly recommend-
ed. Tickets are still available
and can be purchased online at
sprintcenter.com.
February is shaping up to
be a huge month for music,
especially hip-hop. Hopefully
this continues for the rest of
the year.

“Tis isn’t a fnger-paint-
ing session!” a stern Quentin
Tarantino said as he corrected
the handful of people huddled
in the confnes of his New York
City apartment. “You can’t all
just dip your fngers into this
and mess it up.” Tarantino was
performing a reading and cri-
tique of a script that night in
1999, and was protecting his
creative expertise as the oth-
ers tried to butt in with their
opinions.
Presence in such a situation
is an experience few people in
the independent flm industry
— and even fewer Kansas na-
tives — can claim.
For most, even a chance en-
counter with such a promi-
nent director would be a pipe
dream, but School of Arts lec-
turer Laura Kirk was front and
center that night. Te script
Tarantino read that night was
half hers.
“Lisa Picard is Famous,”
which she co-wrote with actor
Nat DeWolf, was being cri-
tiqued by Tarantino because
his girlfriend at the time, Mira
Sorvino, was a producer for
the movie. It was a signifcant
moment in Kirk’s flm career.
“It was actually kind of funny
and really stuck with me,” Kirk
said. “I always knew how lucky
I was to have that night.”
Although currently working
as a lecturer for a “Perfor-
mance for the Camera” class in
the University theater depart-
ment,
Kirk is predominantly an in-
dependent actress, producer
and screenwriter whose pro-
fessional network ranges from
stars like Guy Pearce to Alan
Arkin.
From humble beginnings on
a farm in Lecompton, Kirk be-
gan her acting career began in
middle school, which carried
her through high school. She
then landed herself a creative
and performing arts scholar-
ship to the University.
During college, she interned
at a theater in Connecticut,
which led her to numerous
New York City connections.
Kirk moved to New York City
immediately afer graduation,
had a stint in theater, then
moved on to commercials
and guest appearances on TV
shows.
Her big break came from
co-writing and starring in
“Lisa Picard is Famous,” which
premiered at the Cannes Film
Festival in 2000.
Two years later, she land-
ed perhaps her most widely
recognizable role opposite
Guy Pearce as a fower seller in
Simon Wells’ big-budget “Te
Time Machine.”
Matt Jacobson, associate
professor of flm and media
studies, said he feels these ex-
periences greatly beneft Kirk’s
students.
“Laura Kirk brings years of
expertise and experience as a
stage and screen actor to our
department,” Jacobson said.
“I've worked with students
who have taken her courses,
and their abilities to collabo-
rate and get performances out
of their actors in their later
works have improved substan-
tially.”
Kirk continues to work ex-
tensively in local independent
flm, commonly with Univer-
sity flm Professor Kevin Will-
mott. One of their most recent
collaborations, “Jayhawkers,”
debuts Feb. 14 at the Lied Cen-
ter. Teir other recent cooper-
ative, “Te Sublime and Beau-
tiful,” debuted at Slamdance
Film Festival last month, and
will be going on a festival cir-
cuit throughout 2014.
Kirk is a slightly reserved
woman whose eyes subtly re-
veal an uncommon emotional
depth. Te ability to “let go”
and “stop acting” is an import-
ant mantra she teaches. She
said she believes developing an
actual on-screen interpersonal
connection is much more im-
portant than just learning to
act.
“Acting is playing at its high-
est level,” Kirk said. “If you’re
really letting go and doing it,
it’s exhilarating.”
Part of what make’s Kirk’s
class unique is her current life-
style. She has one foot in the
flm community and one in the
classroom. Trough her work
and festival visits, she is con-
stantly learning cutting-edge
techniques used in modern
flm, and is then immediately
able to pass frsthand knowl-
edge to her students. Willmott
said he feels this fact is invalu-
able.
“She has a wealth of experi-
ence both in front and behind
the camera,” Willmott said.
“She combines a successful
Hollywood acting resume with
what it takes to produce an in-
dependent flm. She is still a
working actor and producer
which makes it even more im-
portant.”

Allen responds to Farrow’s
abuse claims in open letter
CELEBRITY

Director and actor Woody Allen is again denying he molested adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow in an open letter
published online Friday by The New York Times.
GO TO KANSAN.COM TO CHECK OUT A VLOG ABOUT FJDKAJ
LOS ANGELES — Woody
Allen is again denying he
molested adoptive daughter
Dylan Farrow and is calling
ex-partner Mia Farrow vindic-
tive, spiteful and malevolent in
an open letter published on-
line Friday by Te New York
Times.
Te 78-year-old flmmak-
er says Dylan Farrow's open
letter published last week by
Te New York Times includes
"creative fourishes that seem
to have magically appeared
during our 21-year estrange-
ment."
"Of course, I did not molest
Dylan," writes Allen. "I loved
her and hope one day she
will grasp how she has been
cheated out of having a lov-
ing father and exploited by a
mother more interested in her
own festering anger than her
daughter's well-being."
Allen was investigated for
the alleged molestation, but
was never charged. A team of
child abuse specialists from
the Yale-New Haven Hospital,
brought in to the case by pros-
ecutors and police, concluded
that Dylan Farrow had not
been molested.
"Now it's 21 years later and
Dylan has come forward with
the accusations that the Yale
experts investigated and found
false," Allen said.
At the time of the breakup
of their 12-year relationship
more than two decades ago,
Mia Farrow accused Allen of
molesting Dylan Farrow. Al-
len has consistently denied the
abuse allegation.
Teir split followed the dis-
covery of an afair between
Allen and the adopted daugh-
ter of Mia Farrow, Soon-Yi
Previn, when Previn was 19 or
21. (Her ofcial date of birth is
uncertain). Allen and Previn
married in 1997 and have two
adopted daughters.
"I still loved (Dylan) deeply,
and felt guilty that by falling
in love with Soon-Yi I had put
her in the position of being
used as a pawn for revenge,"
Allen said.
Te "Annie Hall" and "Blue
Jasmine" director again claims
in his open letter that 7-year-
old Dylan Farrow was coached
by Mia Farrow.
In a statement made to Te
Hollywood Reporter late Fri-
day, Dylan Farrow wrote that
Mia Farrow was not the one
who brought criminal charges
— "in fact, it was a pediatrician
who reported the incident to
the police based on my frst-
hand account." She also stat-
ed that the prosecutor found
probable cause to prosecute
Allen, but decided against it to
protect what they called "the
child victim."
Te 28-year-old Dylan Far-
row, now married, currently
lives in Florida under another
name.

NEW YORK — "Te Lego
Movie" clicked with moviego-
ers, assembling an exception-
al $69.1 million debut at the
weekend box ofce, according
to studio estimates.
Te better-than-expected
result made the Warner Bros.
collaboration with the Danish
toy company easily the biggest
hit of the year so far. A sequel
is already in development for
the 3-D animated flm, digi-
tally drawn to mimic a world
composed entirely of Lego
bricks.
Te flm has drawn raves
from critics. Co-directors
and co-writers Phil Lord and
Chris Miller ("21 Jump Street,"
''Cloudy With a Chance of
Meatballs") gave the flm a
playful tone to capture the
whimsy of a child playing in
a box of Legos. Characters are
largely voiced by comic actors
like Chris Pratt and Will Fer-
rell.
Te flm marks the biggest
animation hit for Warner
Bros., a studio that despite
popular live-action franchises
has struggled to develop an-
imated hits on par with other
studios.
"I can't imagine this not
turning into a long-term fran-
chise," said Paul Dergarabedi-
an, senior media analyst for
box-ofce tracker Rentrak.
"Tis is such a runaway suc-
cess that Warner Bros is now
a major player in the animated
genre."
Dan Fellman, head of distri-
bution for Warner Bros., said
the flm, made with a produc-
tion budget of $60 million, re-
sounded because of the popu-
larity of the Lego brand. Tis is
the frst feature flm for the toy
company. Fellow toy-maker
Hasbro has seen mixed results
since the launch of the "Trans-
formers" franchise, which was
followed by "G.I. Joe: Rise of
the Cobra" and the notorious
fop "Battleship."
George Clooney's World
War II caper "Te Monuments
Men" opened in second place
with $22.7 million. Reviews
have been weak for the based-
on-a-true-story tale about the
mission to retrieve artwork
stolen by the Nazis.
Te Sony Pictures flm was
postponed from a Dec. 25 re-
lease because, Clooney then
said, more time was needed
to fnish the visual efects.
Clooney served as director,
co-writer, producer and star
on the flm.
"Te Monuments Men,"
based on the nonfction book
by Robert Edsel and Brett Wit-
ter, was particularly popular
with older moviegoers, with 75
percent of its audience aged 35
and older.
"It's right where we hoped to
be," said Rory Bruer, head of
distribution for Sony. "Tere's
a lot of love for George and the
ensemble cast."
Sliding to third was the cop
comedy "Ride Along," with
Kevin Hart and Ice Cube. Af-
ter three straight weeks atop
the box ofce, the Universal
flm earned $9.4 million.
Te Weinstein Co.'s bid for a

Fox cancels “The X Factor”
after low ratings in 2013
LOS ANGELES — Fox has X'd out
"The X Factor."
Once seen as the next "American
Idol," Fox has canceled the "The
X Factor" after three seasons of
shuffling judges and low ratings
for the musical talent show.
Simon Cowell, who left "American
Idol" for "The X Factor," will now fo-
cus his efforts on the U.K. version
of the show.
"Last year, for a number of rea-
sons, I had to make a decision to
return to the U.K. version of 'The X
Factor' in 2014," Cowell said in a
statement.
That would seem to contradict
what Cowell said two months ago,
when he told reporters that "The X
Factor" would return for a fourth
season.
Fox Enterainment President Kevin
Reilly said, "Unfortunately, there is
no 'X Factor' without Simon Cow-
ell, but we understand and sup-
port his decision to focus on the
international formats and on the
next phase of his personal life. We
wish him the very best, and it's our
sincere hope that we work together
again soon."
The singing competition series
has played musical chairs with its
judging panel since its launch. Its
original panel included Cowell, his
former "American Idol" pal Paula
Abdul, veteran record label execu-
tive L.A. Reid and British pop star
Cheryl Cole. The latter was dropped
a few days into the job, replaced by
singer Nicole Scherzinger.
That lineup would last just one
season, with Abdul and Scherzing-
er out, replaced by young song-
stress Demi Lovato and pop vet
Britney Spears. As it headed into
its third season, Spears and Reid
had made their exit, with former
"Destiny's Child" member Kelly
Rowland and Paulina Rubio filling
up the seats.

Calif. Fox and the show’s production companies say the U.S. edition of the singing competition won’t be returning this fall.

Border collie wins Westminster show agility trial
NATIONAL
ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — A border col-
lie named Kelso rocketed to a
win in the Westminster Kennel
Club's new agility competition
Saturday night, while a hus-
ky mix called Roo! ran away
with the recognition aforded
to mixed-breed dogs at the
nation's premier show for the
frst time since the 1800s.
Shooting through tun-
nels, scrambling over ramps,
weaving through poles as a
tail-wagging blur and taking
a tight turn with a celebra-
tory bark, 7-year-old Kelso
bested about 225 other dogs
— including another shown
by his college-student owner
— to take the overall champi-
onship. And Roo! made it to
the fnal fve to garner a prize
for the top mixed-breed, or
"all-American" dog.
Te competition put a
fast-growing canine activity on
U.S. dogdom's biggest stage,
with the fnals nationally tele-
vised on Fox Sports 1. While
Kelso has won other agility ti-
tles, the Westminster trial was
something special to his own-
er, Delaney Ratner.
"It's an awesome way to get
our sport out there," said Rat-
ner, a sophomore econom-
ics major at the University of
Massachusetts at Amherst.
Te daughter of agility trainer
Cindy Ratner, she could hardly
decide which dog to root for in
the fnal fve — Jonesy, a min-
iature schnauzer she co-own-
ers with her mom, won his
height class.
Mixed breeds had their
champion in Roo!, a dog so
high-spirited that she'd been
adopted and returned to an
animal shelter several times
before San Francisco-based
dog trainer Stacey Campbell
took her home about seven
years ago. Barking avidly as
she waited to be the last dog
to run, the lanky husky mix
zipped through the course to
cheers from the crowd at Pier
94 in Manhattan.
"It just shows that you don't
have to go get a breed to get a
dog," Campbell said aferward.
"Any dog can compete in agil-
ity."
Established decades ago, agil-
ity is an increasingly popular
canine pursuit. Te number
of dogs competing in agility
trials sanctioned by the Amer-
ican Kennel Club, the govern-
ing body for many events, has
grown by nearly 50 percent
over the last fve years.
Agility afcionados say
the sport is a canine conf-
dence-builder that creates rap-
port between dogs and owners,
provides a healthy outlet for
high-energy pets and shows
what dogs of all shapes and
sizes can do. Five-and-a-half-
pound, top-knotted Tommy
the toy poodle, for instance,
few over the jumps and tip-
toed through the weave poles
to fnish third in his height
group.
Saturday's competitors
spanned 63 diferent breeds,
and about 16 competitors
were mixes, a substantial shif
for a dog show that has long
been purely purebred turf.
Te 138-year-old Westmin-
ster show featured some mixes
early on, but not since at least
1884, organizers say.
Mixed-breeds still can't com-
pete for the sought-afer Best
in Show trophy. But their in-
clusion in the agility contest
has brought cheers from own-
ers eager to show that every-
day dogs can go nose-to-nose
with their purebred peers.
Westminster ofcials say add-
ing mixed-breed contestants
helps the show make good on
its aim to honor all dogs and
their roles in people's lives.

Court papers: Wisconsin woman
faked pregnancy, stole baby
NATIONAL
TOWN OF BELOIT, Wis.
— An hour afer a woman re-
ported her newborn son miss-
ing from a Wisconsin home,
police were questioning her
step-sister — found with a
prosthetic pregnancy belly,
baby clothes and a stroller, but
no baby, according to court
documents.
It was more than 24 hours
afer Kayden Powell went
missing before authorities dis-
covered the infant, less than a
week old, in a plastic storage
crate outside an Iowa gas sta-
tion, miraculously alive and
well despite frigid tempera-
tures.
Kristen Smith of Denver
had pretended to be pregnant,
went to Wisconsin and stole
her step-sister's baby from his
bassinet as his parents slept,
court documents say. Ten, as
police closed in on her, she al-
legedly abandoned the infant,
who was swaddled in blankets.
Federal prosecutors in Mad-
ison charged Smith with kid-
napping Friday afernoon,
hours afer an Iowa police
chief found Kayden.
"He's strong," the newborn's
great-uncle, Mark Bennett,
said of the boy. "I'm glad that
baby is still living instead of
in a ditch somewhere on a
strange highway."
Te discovery of the infant
shortly afer 10 a.m. Friday
capped a frantic search that
involved police ofcers in Wis-
consin, Illinois and Iowa.
It began afer the boy's moth-
er, Brianna Marshall, called
police around 4:30 a.m. Turs-
day to report her newborn
had vanished from Bennett's
home, where she and the ba-
by's father, Bruce Powell, had
been staying, according to po-
lice and the afdavit.
Marshall said Smith had lef
the house a couple of hours
earlier to return to Colorado.
While police were at the house,
Smith called on her cellphone.
She told police that Marshall
and Bruce Powell were plan-
ning to move to Denver on
Saturday to live with her and
she had Kayden's clothes in
her car but didn't have the boy.
Police told her to pull over
for questioning. An ofcer
met her at a Kum & Go gas
station near Interstate 80 in
West Branch, Iowa. She was
arrested about 5:30 a.m. on
an outstanding Texas warrant,
but she denied any knowledge
of Kayden's whereabouts, the
afdavit says.
A search of her cellphone
revealed emails in which she
said she gave birth on Feb. 5,
according to the court docu-
ment. A search of her Face-
book page turned up postings
in which she claimed she was
pregnant.
Smith didn't appear preg-
nant, according to the afda-
vit. A pregnancy test that was
administered while she was in
custody came back negative,
U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil
said.
Meanwhile, dozens of ofcers
began searched for the child
at possible stop-ofs along
Smith's route from Wisconsin
to Iowa. West Branch Police
Chief Mike Horihan decided
to check the area around a BP
station about 500 yards from
the station where Smith was
arrested. He heard a baby's
cries and discovered Kayden
in a closed storage crate
alongside the building. Te
newborn was responsive and
healthy, the chief said.
"I had tears in my eyes," BP
station manager Jay Patel said,
recalling his reaction to the
police chief telling him that
the infant had been found. "It's
good news, but it's sad, too."
Temperatures in West
Branch, about 180 miles
southwest of the Town of Be-
loit, dipped below zero Turs-
day night into Friday. Tey
were still in the single digits
when the baby was found.
"Surprisingly with the weath-
er the way it was, he was sur-
prisingly healthy," Horihan,
the Iowa police chief, said. "To
be honest with you, that's not
what I expected."
Te baby was taken to an
Iowa City hospital, where he
was reunited with his parents
and released Friday evening.
Online court records didn't
list a defense attorney for
Smith. She faces life in prison
if convicted.
Police interviewed Smith
again afer Kayden was dis-
covered, the afdavit said, and
she admitted she had taken the
baby and lef him at the BP
station.
Bennett, the baby's great-un-
cle, told Te Associated Press
he frst met Smith on Tursday
night, when he came home
and found her, his mother and
the baby's mother and father
in his house. He said his moth-
er later explained to him that
Marshall and her step-sister
had the same father but difer-
ent mothers.
He went to his room in the
basement. When he woke up,
the baby and Smith were gone.
He said he kept telling Mar-
shall that Smith had to have
taken the child, but Marshall
refused to believe it. Te ba-
by's bassinet was two feet from
the parents' bed and he found
a paring knife on the ground
next to it.
"I could have woke up to a
bloody mess," Bennett said.
He said he hopes Smith gets
locked up for life.
"You stole him like you're
stealing something from the
grocery store," the great-uncle
said. "Nobody in their right
mind should have thought of
that."
Smith appears to go by multi-
ple names and has had run-ins
with the law in multiple states,
authorities said. Te Texas
warrant stems from a felony
indictment charging her with
tampering with government
documents late last year while
she was in jail in Colorado.
A spokesman for the Arap-
ahoe County, Colo., sherif's
ofce declined to discuss the
details of her arrest there. A
spokeswoman for the district
attorney's ofce in Tarrant
County, Texas, said it's not
clear why Colorado authori-
ties released Smith instead of
sending her back to Texas.

Authorities gather at a gas station in West Branch, Iowa, where a missing newborn was found alive on Friday.
Police said they found Kayden Powell, who’s nearly a week old, after they heard the newborn crying.
Emily Harsh, a senior from
Topeka, said she doesn’t see
how people would disagree
with increasing penalties for
driving under the infuence.
“I don’t really see how anyone
could reasonably have an op-
posing stance,” Harsh said. “I
suppose if somebody is foolish
enough, perhaps.”
Te law will take efect on
July 1, 2014.

Despite the popular belief
that police ofcers are hus-
tling at the end of each month
to meet their citation quota,
McKinley said that is not true
in Lawrence.
“I’ve been here for 23 years
and we have never had any
kind of quota,” McKinley said.
“Sometimes, if we’re work-
ing for KDOT on one of their
grants, they set targets or goals
that they want you to meet —
like one seat belt citation per
hour. Tat’s not anything that
is set by our department, that’s
KDOT trying to enforce a law
for their department.”

ful of people who have a car,”
said Maddie Level, a freshman

pact getting home and people
getting rides. It’s going to be

volved. I understand why they
are doing this, but at this time
it is extremely inconvenient.”

NEW YORK — More than
3,000 birds were rescued in
a three-county cockfghting
takedown in New York this
weekend that resulted in
nine felony arrests, accord-
ing to the state Attorney
General's Ofce.
In a statement released
Sunday night, Attorney
General Eric Schneiderman
said it was the largest cock-
fghting takedown in New
York state and among the
largest in U.S. history.
"Operation Angry Birds"
simultaneously targeted lo-
cations in Queens, Brooklyn
and Ulster County with as-
sistance from the American
Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals and the
Ulster County Sherif's of-
fce, Schneiderman said.
"Cockfghting is a cruel,
abusive and barbaric prac-
tice that tortures animals,
endangers the health and
safety of the public and is
known to facilitate other
crimes," Schneiderman said.
At the cockfghts, specta-
tors were charged admission
fees and an additional fee for
a seat within the secret base-
ment location that housed
the all-night fghts, author-
ities said. Alcohol was sold
without a permit and owners
and spectators placed bets
on the fghts with individual
wagers reaching $10,000.
In Queens, authorities raid-
ed a cockfghting bimonthly
event where 70 people were
taken into custody, includ-
ing six who were arrested on
felony prohibition of animal
fghting charges. Te ASP-
CA took control of 65 fght-
ing birds, authorities said.
In Brooklyn, a pet shop
was raided where 50 fght-
ing birds were rescued from
a basement beneath the pet
shop. Te pet shop's own-
er was arrested on a felony
charge and cockfghting
contraband, including ar-
tifcial spurs and syringes
used to inject performance
enhancing drugs into the
roosters, were also found.
Te pet shop owner was
charged with prohibition of
animal fghting, prosecutors
said.
Authorities also raided a
90-acre farm in Plattekill,
rescuing as many at 3,000
birds. Te farm's owners
charged rent to cockfght-
ing enthusiasts from various
other states, including, New
Jersey, Pennsylvania, Con-
necticut and Massachusetts
to board, feed and care for
roosters that were bred and
trained to fght, prosecutors
said. A farm manager and a
farm hand at the scene were
arrested.
Authorities said the roost-
ers had razor-sharp gafs at-
tached in place of their spurs
and were locked in small
pens to be wagered on. Te
ASPCA has established a
temporary shelter to house
and care for the animals.
In New York, cockfghting
and possession of a fghting
bird at a cockfghting loca-
tion are felonies and each
charge carries a maximum
penalty of four years in jail
and a fne of up to $25,000,
according to the attorney
general's ofce.

Kansas prepares
for K-State rivalry

SOFTBALL
PAGE 8B Kansas falls short at invitational
KANSAS 83 — WEST VIRGINIA 69
Battle-tested Jayhawks hang on for victory
Freshman guard Frank
Mason wasn’t done working.
Kansas’ backup point guard
still rife with energy, and
getting set to check in, wasn’t
satisfed just watching from
the sideline as the second half
ticked away.
In front of the scorer’s table
Mason got himself squared up
and rattled of some pushups,
grinding them out until the
whistle blew and he could get
back to playing.
“I just felt like doing some,”
Mason said. “It’s the frst
time.”
Afer months of coach Bill
Self trying to instill a sense
of workmanship among his
players the message has gone
subliminal. Te dividends
have been a bit easier to spot,
like Mason grabbing a loose
ball and fnishing with a
sidestep into the lane that had
West Virginia’s junior guard
Gary Browne falling over.
No. 8 Kansas defeated the
Mountaineers, 83-69, and
with the second half of the Big
12 season ofcially underway
the Jayhawks’ vitality answers
many of the remaining
questions surrounding them.
“It doesn’t really matter
who starts,” freshman guard
Wayne Selden Jr., said afer
fnishing with 17 points. “No
matter who is on the court we
should be able to do the same
thing.”
Which is more of an
embodiment of Kansas’ game
on Saturday than anything
else.
When sophomore forward
Perry Ellis and freshman
center Joel Embiid started
struggling and fouling in the
frst half, senior forward Tarik
Black and sophomore forward
Jamari Traylor came in and
took control of the paint for
them. Instead of laboring and
clogging the middle, the two
combined for 18 points and
seven rebounds.
Really it’s become just
another constant for this
Kansas team. When the frst
group of bigs needs to get of
the foor, the second group
takes over fawlessly.
“I’m not sure there was a
drop of when Tarik was in the
game,” Self said. “He’s playing
the exact way we envisioned
when we got him. Maybe
better.”
Te days of Black fouling
uncontrollably have faded
away with the confusing mess
that made up non-conference
play. It’s what you would
expect from a seasoned team,
learning how to cope with
new teammates and diferent
atmospheres. Not necessarily
something you expect from
group that routinely plays fve
freshmen.
Even freshman guard
Andrew Wiggins seemed to

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL
Kansas falls to Oklahoma at home
KYLE PAPPAS
sports@kansan.com
Afer taking No. 11
Oklahoma State down to the
wire earlier this week, Kansas
women’s basketball should
have been high on confdence
heading into its home
matchup versus Oklahoma on
Sunday. But that confdence
quickly dissipated as the
Jayhawks were simply
outplayed during their 81-71
loss to the Sooners in Allen
Fieldhouse.
“We just didn’t have
any pop,” coach Bonnie
Henrickson said. “We allowed
them to be who they wanted
to be.”
Te Sooners (15-9, 6-5
Big 12) went scoreless in the
game’s opening four minutes,
but Kansas (11-13, 4-8 Big 12)
still found itself playing from
behind for much of the frst
half. Oklahoma was able to
string together a few key runs
to maintain a comfortable
advantage while the Jayhawks
couldn’t seem to get much
going on ofense.
Te game’s pivotal matchup
was Kansas junior forward
Chelsea Gardner on Sooners’
senior center Nicole Grifn.
At 6-foot-6, Grifn was
Oklahoma’s sole threat in the
paint, and they tried to get her
the ball early and ofen. But
Gardner continuously stifed
the towering center, blocking
or altering several of her frst-
half attempts.
Tough on the other end
of the foor, Gardner wasn’t
faring much better. She
was continuously harassed
by Sooners’ defenders
immediately afer touching
the rock, rarely getting a
clean look at the basket. Te
Jayhawks were forced to call
on their supporting cast as
Gardner was held without a
feld goal in the frst half.
“Tey rotated and kept fresh
legs on her,” Henrickson said.
“Tey were physical on her.”
Junior guard Natalie Knight
single-handedly kept Kansas
in the contest throughout
Gardner’s frustrating frst
half. She logged 15 points
in just the frst half while no
other Jayhawk recorded more
than fve. Knight drained a
barrage of shots from all over
the court as Kansas was able
to cut its defcit to just two by
halfime.
“Hats of to Natalie Knight,
she really shot the ball well
tonight,” Oklahoma coach
Sherri Coale said. “She was
really, really good.”
In the second half, Knight
picked up where she lef of,
sinking a three on Kansas’
frst possession to give the
team its frst lead in over 15
minutes. But the Jayhawks
promptly gave up a series
of efortless buckets to
Oklahoma, enabling them to
regain the lead shortly afer.
Each time Kansas seemed
to gain momentum, the
Sooners marched down the
foor and stole it right back.
Gardner eventually began to
get comfortable in the second
half — she fnished with 10
points and collected nine
rebounds — but it was too
little too late.
Te Jayhawks perhaps
had their best chance at a
comeback with just over
seven minutes remaining.
Down by only fve afer a
Gardner jumper, the 5,418
in attendance at Allen
Fieldhouse returned to
their feet. But 3-pointers by
Oklahoma on consecutive
possessions quickly pushed
its lead back to 11 and Kansas
never got close again.
“We just weren’t able to fnd
open people in transition,”
senior guard Markisha
Hawkins said. “We weren’t
matched up and they took
advantage of those mistakes.”
If there was a silver lining
to be found, it was certainly
Knight’s day shooting the ball.
She registered a career-high
25 points and hit six shots
from behind the arc to tie a
career-best. Te Jayhawks’
remaining opponents will be
increasingly hesitant to assign
double coverage to Gardner
afer Knight’s day from the
feld on Sunday.
For the Sooners, senior
guard Aaryn Ellenberg led the
way with 19 points on 7-14
shooting. Kansas routinely
allowed her uncontested shots
from everywhere on the court,
which she took advantage of.
Te entire Oklahoma ofense
contributed as well, shooting
55 percent from the foor in
the second half.
“It’s who we knew they were
as far as how explosive they can
be in transition,” Henrickson
said. “I’m disappointed we
didn’t have better focus and
concentration.”

U
ntil this year senior
forward Tarik Black
had never played bas-
ketball in the state of Kansas. He
matched up against the Jayhawks
once in Madison Square Garden
back in his Memphis days, but
that’s about it. He had never
witnessed the passion this state
has for the game, never grew up
listening to stories about the Big
8 battles. Black didn’t pay atten-
tion to Michael Beasley in 2008,
or Jacob Pullen in 2011 and he
likely didn’t hear much about
Rodney McGruder either.
Yet listen to his voice when
Kansas State comes up. Watch as
his smile starts to fade and his
demeanor darkens.
“It’s very personal,” Black said
when Monday’s contest was
brought up.
Freshman guard Wayne Selden,
Jr., grew up on the East Coast.
He played high school ball in
New Hampshire. He wasn’t
around any man who was a
Wildcat, let alone every — at
least not in the Big 12 sense.
Yet when talking about Bram-
lage Coliseum he speaks like a
veteran.
“We’re going in expecting
the worst,” Selden said. “We’re
expecting a hostile environment,
expecting not to get any calls,
expecting to battle through it.”
Freshman guard Andrew
Wiggins didn’t know a lick about
Kevin Durant’s days at Texas
before this season started. Tere’s
little chance he knew about
anything that happened 90 miles
west of Lawrence before then
either.
Tere’s virtually no reason
many of these players, certainly
the freshmen, should care about
playing Kansas State. Instead,
the team has taken it upon
themselves to come out with
what Black called, “one of our
best games,” and to prepare for
the hatred that stems from years
of familiarity. All for a team they
hardly know.
One day soon these Jayhawks
will be playing for some serious
titles. Owning this state is just
frst on the list.
Quite simply: Tis team has
bought into being Kansas basket-
ball players.
Tey’ve bought into dominating
Big 12 play, bought into protect-
ing home court and bought into
the rivalries.
At this point it wouldn’t be
surprising if freshman center
Joel Embiid walks of the foor
in Manhattan on Monday night
blowing kisses to the crowd the
same way Elijah Johnson did
last year.
“We’re expecting to shine when
we play them,” Black said, acting
as though he’d been the one to
rip the hearts out of Wildcats
fans for years now.
Maybe this is just talk. Perhaps
the team is playing this up for
the sake of the rivalry.
Maybe it’s more than that. May-
be Black, Selden and Wiggins
have been walking around cam-
pus and listening to their class-
mates. Maybe they have been
hearing stories from students
and coaches about K-State.
Tis is their rivalry now and it’ll
probably be the last time Kansas
plays them this year – assuming
there’s no rematch in March.
Ten again, this isn’t the frst
time players have gone up
against hated opponents.
“It’s an in-state rivalry,” Black
said. “We’re ready for that.”

I
n the right feld corner of Shea
Stadium, a small patch of grass sits
just beyond foul territory. Te feld
was originally known as Greenberg’s
Gardens. Mets’ fans know it by anoth-
er name: Kiner’s Korner.
By the late 2000s Ralph Kiner’s
voice was slow and scratchy. His
vocal chords worn out from years
of dictating baseball to any Mets fan
with a television. It wasn’t the voice
that made Kiner the broadcast legend
that he is. It was his experience, his
knowledge and his love for the game
of baseball.
Younger generations of Mets fans
only remember Kiner for his guest
appearances on SNY’s broadcasts.
Tey hear the age in his voice, the the
wisdom in his words and most of all,
they see the admiration on the faces of
his broadcast partners, Gary Cohen,
Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez.
As long as there have been the Mets,
Kiner has talked about them.
Tere are few people who have been
around baseball as long as Kiner.
When he had something to say, people
listened. Whether it refected on his
playing days as one of the greatest
sluggers of his time or using his humor
to describe what’s happening on the
feld, he educated his audience.
Be it an accident or on purpose, Kin-
er’s quips kept his audience engaged.
“Te Mets have gotten their leadof
hitter on only once this inning,” he
would say.
“Home run hitters drive Cadillacs;
singles hitters drive Fords.”
And yet, Cooperstown knows him
best for his days as a Pittsburgh Pirate,
where his injury-shortened career is
remembered as one of the best. Hall
of Fame pitcher Warren Spahn used
to say, “Kiner can wipe out your lead
with one swing.”
Major League Baseball
Commissioner Bud Selig
remarked that Kiner was the
greatest hitter the National
League had seen.
“His consistent power and
patience in the heart of the
Pirates lineup made him a
member of our All-Cen-
tury Team and, in many
respects, a player ahead of
his time,” Selig said in a statement.
Kiner lead or was tied for the Nation-
al League in home runs in each of his
frst seven seasons. Kiner still holds
the record for most home runs hit in
a player’s frst fve MLB seasons (215)
and is sixth all-time in at-bats/home
run (14.1).
Te Baseball Hall of Fame put Kiner’s
face on a plaque. Te Pirates put his
hands on a statue next to those of
Willie Stargell, Roberto Clemente and
Honus Wagner.
In 1962 when the expansion Mets
joined the National League they asked
Kiner to accompany them.
A year later, the frst episode of
Kiner’s Korner aired. Te show fol-
lowed every home
broadcast, becoming
a staple for Mets’ fans
viewing experience.
It was a place for him
to rife of puns and
preach his philosophies
of the game. Even if he
had a hard time decoding
the game himself.
“Tat’s the great thing
about baseball,” Kiner would
say. “You never know what’s going on.”
In the later years, Kiner’s broadcast
time diminished, making his Sunday
afernoon appearances on WPIX all
the more special. When Kiner was in
the booth Gary Cohen, Ron Darling,
Keith Hernandez and the game itself
took a backseat to one of baseball’s
fnest treasures.
He was a throwback to the golden
era of baseball. When those Sundays
came around Mets fans didn’t miss it.
Regardless of the team’s record, Kiner’s
presence was all that mattered.
Ralph Kiner died last Tursday afer-
noon. He was 91.

Naadir Tharpe, guard
After a tough defensive battle against West Virginia’s
guard Juwan Staten, Tharpe will have his hands full again.
He will have to face K-State’s guard Marcus Foster, who
scored 34 points against Texas on Saturday. Tharpe’s
offensive game has been constant, but he needs to step up
his perimeter defense. If Tharpe can’t contain Foster then
he will be replaced with freshmen Frank Mason early.
★★★★✩

Wayne Selden, Jr., guard
The Jayhawks most consistent player on Saturday
was Selden. He presented a combination of 3-point
range and driving ability. His shot beyond the arc has
improved throughout the season and Selden showed
confidence on Saturday by shooting 3-5 from three.
Selden started taking the ball to the rim more often
and he seems more comfortable in the lane now
too. He’s a hard player to stop when he’s hitting
on all cylinders.
★★★★★
Andrew Wiggins, guard
The hype is back. Even though Wiggins isn’t scoring
a high volume of points and isn’t having eye-pop-
ping numbers, he is playing the role that Kansas
needs him to play to win. Wiggins comes up with big
rebounds, takes shots that he knows are within his
game and plays shutdown defense on the opponent’s
best scorer. Wiggins is the best defender on the team
and will continue to be the number one scoring option.

★★★★★
Perry Ellis, forward
The numbers don’t tell how poorly Ellis has played of lately.
Ellis was 4-8 from the field against West Virginia, but he
only played eight minutes in the first half because of foul
trouble. Ellis had the worst performance out of all the
Jayhawks on Saturday and he’s not improving on defense.
He gives up a lot of points and offensive rebounds in the
paint. Ellis needs to become tougher in the lane to stay
in because forward Jamari Traylor has played better than
Ellis recently.
★★★✩ ✩
Joel Embiid, center
Did Embiid hit the wall? Embiid has averaged only
19 minutes the past three games due to chronic foul
trouble. Embiid looks as if he’s trying to do too much
around the rim. He helps out on every drive to the
hoop and needs to learn when he’s out of position
to block the shot. When Embiid is on the court, he’s
effective. Even though Embiid only played 17 minutes
against West Virginia, he quietly recorded 11 points
and 12 rebounds.
★★★★✩
STARTERS
?
This is an underrated im-
portant game for Kansas. If
the Jayhawks lose, that will
bring the Big 12 Conference
very close and Kansas State
a chance to get back into the
race. Kansas beat the Wildcats
by 26 in Lawrence, which
means K-State will be out for
blood at the Octagon of Doom
in Manhattan.
Naadir Tharpe

Tharpe will have to manage
the offensive and worry about
K-State’s Marcus Foster.
Tharpe has run the offense
well recently by not turning the
ball over and hitting his open
shots. What to watch is Tharpe
guarding Foster. Foster is
capable of taking over games
and if Tharpe allows Foster
easy baskets, people
will be watching Tharpe from
the bench.
Can Joel Embiid stay out
of foul trouble?
Embiid picked up four fouls in
each of his last three games.
Due to his foul trouble, Embiid
played little in the first halves
of those games and forced the
bench to step up. No denying,
the Jayhawks are better with
Embiid on the floor and for
Kansas to beat K-State in
Manhattan the Jayhawks will
need everyone contributing to
the scoring.

Texas on Saturday, shoots 38
percent from beyond the arc.
The Jayhawks will need to in-
tensify their perimeter defense
to secure the season swept
against the Wildcats.

The Wildcats (16-7, 6-4 Big
12) are 3-0 against ranked
teams at home this season
including a win over then-No.
6 Oklahoma State on Jan. 4.
They essentially play with a
four-guard lineup with
forward Thomas Gipson
manning the paint. Kansas
State has one of the confer-
ence’s best defenses, which
allows a league-low 67 points
against conference teams.
Marcus Foster
Andrew Wiggins was able to
negate Foster in Lawrence
as he made just three field
goals. Foster appears to be
more confident now and has
averaged 28.5 points in two
February games. He almost
single-handedly beat Texas
on Saturday and could use a
similar performance against
the Jayhawks.
Does Kansas State have any
energy left after Saturday?
The Wildcats nearly played
a perfect game against sec-
ond-place Texas as they shot
53 percent and held the Long-
horns to 33 percent. K-State
will have to sustain this level
of play to avoid its second
home loss of the season.

STARTERS
Will Spradling, guard
More than half of his points have come from 3-point
range as the senior ranks tenth in the Big 12 in 3-point
field goals made per game. His 43 percent 3-point
percentage in conference play ranks seventh best in the
conference. Spradling, who leads the Wildcats in steals,
is coming off a nine-point performance shooting 3-4
from the field and recording a season-high four steals.
★★★★✩
Shane Southwell, guard
Like Thomas Gipson, Southwell has been unpredict-
able in Big 12 play. He averaged seven points per
game in the first three conference games, 16 points
per game in his next four and four points per game
in his last three. The senior is among the top three
on the team in points, rebounds, assists, steals and
blocks.

★★★✩✩
Marcus Foster, guard
Foster is coming off his best game of the season. The
freshman scored 34 points on 13-16 shooting in the
team’s 74-57 win over the Longhorns on Saturday and
was the only Wildcat to reach double figures. One of
his worst conference games came against Kansas
on Jan. 11 when he scored seven points shooting 25
percent. He averages a team-leading 14.7 points per
game.
★★★★★
Wesly Iwundu, forward
Capable of playing either guard or forward, the

Gipson has been inconsistent in conference play.
Since scoring 20-plus in back-to-back games, he has

No. 8 KANSAS
(18-5, 9-1 Big 12)

KANSAS STATE
(16-7, 6-4 Big 12)
West Virginia may have two
of the best guards in the Big
12, but they couldn’t do any-
thing to stop the Jayhawks
down low.
No. 8 Kansas scored 46
points in the paint for its
highest total of the conference
season as the Jayhawks (18-5,
9-1) defeated the West Virgin-
ia Mountaineers (14-10, 6-5)
83-69 on Saturday at Allen
Fieldhouse.
West Virginia struggled in
the post as its undersized
roster was only able to regis-
ter 18 points in the paint. Te
Jayhawks held a 37-28 ad-
vantage on the glass as eight
ofensive rebounds led to 13
second-chance points for Kan-
sas, nine more than the Moun-
taineers.
“What hurts is what has
hurt us all year,” West Virgin-
ia coach Bob Huggins said.
“We just don’t have anyone to
throw the ball to inside.”
Kansas’ emphasis on scoring
inside also paid of in that the
Jayhawks were able to draw 26
West Virginia fouls. All fve
Mountaineer forwards who
received playing time recorded
at least four fouls with Devin
Williams and Brandon Wat-
kins fouling out.
Tese fouls led to 34 free
throw attempts for Kansas,
who had averaged 20 attempts
in its previous three games.
West Virginia wasn’t able
to compensate for its lack of
an inside threat. Te Moun-
taineers shot 26 percent from
3-point range — well-below
their season average of 38 per-
cent that ranks second-best in
the conference. Sophomore
guard Eron Harris made three
consecutive 3-pointers in a
90-second span in the frst
half for West Virginia, but
the team only mustered three
other 3-pointers the rest of the
game. Freshman guard An-
drew Wiggins, who guarded
Harris most of the day, made
adjustments afer that stretch
and held Harris to six points
in the last 31 minutes.
“I tried to turn him into a
driver instead of a shooter,”
Wiggins said.
Kansas scored 30 points in
the paint in the frst half alone.
Te Jayhawks didn’t attempt a
3-pointer until the seven-min-
ute mark in the period, which
is the longest Kansas has gone
this season without a 3-point
attempt. Te Jayhawks made
four for the day to tie the
team’s lowest total in confer-
ence play this season.
Despite playing only 17 min-
utes because of foul trouble,
freshman center Joel Embiid
fnished with a double-double
of 11 points, 12 rebounds. He
also rejected three Mountain-
eer shot attempts.
Senior forward Tarik Black
came of the bench and scored
11 points for his second-high-
est scoring production of the
season. Sophomore forward
Jamari Traylor had seven
points as the two stepped in
for Embiid and sophomore
forward Perry Ellis, who were
hampered by early foul trou-
ble. Black and Traylor shot a
combined 6-6 from the foor
and combined for 15 points
before halfime.
“Tey were great in the frst
half,” coach Bill Self said.
“Tey were the main reason
we had the lead.”
Wiggins scored a majority
of his team’s points, with 19
in the paint. He also drove to
the basket and got free points
at the line. He attempted 10
free throws in the second half
alone, making seven.
“I try to be aggressive and get
into the lane,” Wiggins said. “I
do what I can to draw contact
and get to the foul line.”
Te Jayhawks have experi-
enced success against similar
teams this season. Like West
Virginia, Duke, Iowa State and
Oklahoma State don't have
many options down low and
rely on a guard-heavy lineup.
Kansas has gone 4-0 against
those teams.

Black was forced into the game because of freshmen
center Joel Embiid’s early foul trouble, but Black
didn’t disappoint. In the first half alone, Black had
a standout performance. He was 3-3 from the field
and 2-3 from the free throw line to end the first half
with eight points and three rebounds. Black only
played eight minutes in the second half, but
finished the game with 11 points and four
rebounds on 21 minutes.
UNSUNG HERO
Mason
Frank Mason, guard
This honor could have gone to sophomore forward
Jamari Traylor, but Mason helped the Jayhawks
offensively and defensively early in the first half.
Mason came in with less than 17 minutes left in the
first half and he shut down West Virginia’s Staten.
Mason played 16 minutes in the first half and
recorded two points and five assists. Mason finished
the game with five points on 23 minutes.

Tharpe
Naadir Tharpe, guard
Wasn’t a big pill to pick from here. No one on the
team had a terrible game, but Tharpe’s shooting
wasn’t on point and his defense wasn’t wonderful.
Tharpe was benched early because he couldn’t
guard West Virginia’s standout guard Juwan Staten.
Tharpe only played eight minutes in the first half,
but played all 20 minutes in the second half. Tharpe
shot 2-7 from the field during the game and 1-4
from beyond the arc. Tharpe hit his only three with
less than three minutes to play.

have his game fgured out on
Saturday. No getting lost in
the zone, no pulling up for
shots like he did in a loss to
Texas. Tere was no need to
when he was able to get his
spacing and cause chaos in
the paint.
“I tried to get into the lane,
get contact and get to the
line,” Wiggins said, admitting
he’d rather shoot.
Te aforementioned Embiid,
who couldn’t get away from
foul calls, still managed a
double-double 11 points and
12 assists in just 17 minutes
of playing time. Not even
Self could get upset with the
reason he sat on the bench.
“A lot of time when he fouls
it’s not his man, it’s when he
goes to help,” Self said. “If big
guys play hard they’re going
to foul.”
No, these were mistakes
made the right way as far
as Self was concerned. Tis
was an example of a team
using past adversity to solve a
progressing problem.
When the Mountaineers
cut a double-digit Kansas
lead to four late in the second
half there wasn’t a sense of
doubt. Tere was Mason,
who led the team with fve
assists, doing pushups on the
sideline, readying himself for
the opportunity to guide the
Jayhawks to another victory.
Afer the game Self would
continue talking about the
league race being wide open,
he would talk about needing
to put on blinders to go
face a Kansas State team in
Manhattan that just devoured
the same Texas team that took
down the Jayhawks.
Tat was only a few minutes
afer Black declared otherwise,
announcing what Kansas fans
already know.
“We’ve been in some hostile
situations,” Black said. “We’ve
been war tested.”

MASON FROM PAGE1B
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Uni-
versity of Missouri senior
defensive end Michael Sam
on Sunday became one of the
few active male athletes on
the major U.S. sports scene to
announce that he's gay and is
poised to become the NFL's
frst openly gay player.
His declaration to two na-
tional media outlets Sunday
night was a bold contradic-
tion of stereotypes and possi-
bly stakes new ground in what
might be termed the civil
rights issue of our time.
Te 2013 defensive player
of the year in the Southeast-
ern Conference, the nation's
roughest and best, was a gay
man, and it's sure hard to rec-
oncile that with the enduring
and mean-spirited myth of
sissifcation.
His decision at last to do so,
and how to do it, came in the
last few weeks as Sam almost
simultaneously told his story
to ESPN and Te New York
Times on Sunday.
Sam's announcement surely
was no surprise for Missouri
football teammates or coach-
es, to whom he had come out,
and others around campus.
But his right to privacy was
honored by multiple media
outlets, including Te Kansas
City Star, as a simple matter of
his choice to publicly discuss
it or not.
"Once I became ofcial to
my teammates, I knew who
I was," Sam told Te Times.
"I knew that I was gay. And I
knew that I was Michael Sam,
who's a Mizzou football play-
er who happens to be gay. I
was so proud of myself and I
just didn't care who knew. If
someone on the street would
have asked me, 'Hey, Mike,
I heard you were gay; is that
true?' I would have said yes."
Sam's decision to go pub-
lic makes him potentially a
pioneering face and force in
the gathering movement for
equality at a time when accep-
tance of gay rights is emerging
legally and socially but intol-
erance still rages.
Even if his impetus to do
so may have been less about
taking a courageous step for
gays than it might have been
as a necessary pre-emptive
maneuver regarding his NFL
prospects, the risk and pro-
spective impact and fallout
are the same.
As a projected third-or-
fourth-round NFL pick
(though one some consider
an in-between size for a pro
defensive end at 6 feet 2 and
255 pounds) Sam fgures to
be in a visible position going
forward.
While he likely will be tar-
geted by some groups, Sam's
stature also might stand as
a further example and hope
for those who are bullied for
being diferent or sufer in si-
lence rather than risk the con-
sequences of bigotry.
Just what it might mean in
the most practical sense _ his
budding NFL career _ is an
unknown, as one AFC exec-
utive, speaking in generalities,
told Te Star.
"You've got 32 diferent en-
tities, 32 diferent teams," he
said. "Everybody drafs play-
ers diferently. Now, with that
being said, we're now in a new
era . . . of football where stuf
like this is becom-
ing part of the fabric of soci-
ety.
"Te bottom line is, can the
guy still play? I think history
has shown that if you can play
and contribute, depending on
the locker room, it will be ac-
cepted."
He added, "We're at a cross-
roads with regards to these
types of players."
Although he's not yet for-
mally in the NFL pool, Sam's
proclamation harkens to per-
haps the most similar previ-
ous case among male athletes
in the so-called big four sports
(MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL).
And it triggers anew broad-
er questions about the pace
of routine acceptance of gays
and lesbians.
y.
While he's obviously not the
frst gay man about to get a
chance in the NFL, he's cer-
tainly the frst whose orienta-
tion has been publicly stated
beforehand.
Tat means that no matter
how self-assured, no matter
what ways he was supported
or ostracized in his hometown
of Hitchcock, Texas, or at MU,
there's likely to be a new fron-
tier of resistance in the form
of the macho NFL locker
room and perhaps in the eyes
of fretful executives.
"Our policy is not one of just
tolerance but acceptance,"
NFL commissioner Roger
Goodell said at a meeting with
sports editors in New York
last year.
But as much as that may
be true philosophically in
the ivory tower, it's hard to
know what that means in the
trenches.
And there's probably nev-
er been a test of that "policy"
quite like this.

MICHAEL SAM
Missouri football player
Senior Alex Bishop is stand-
ing at the beginning of the
runway, a long fberglass pole
in his hands. And his mind is
clear. He knows what his strat-
egy is. He even wrote down
some cues the night before.
“Swing fast.” “Run through the
takeof.” “Have fun.”
He remembers the
cues and thought
about them before
he stepped up to
the runway. But
now it’s time. He
stands looking up
at the bar that is
5.45 meters of the
ground, higher
than any bar he’s
cleared in competition. And
his mind is clear.
He breathes in and out then
takes of with swif steps. He
plants the pole in the box and
fings himself upward, contort-
ing his body up and over the
bar with little room to spare.
Floating back down to the
mat, Bishop lands, adrenalized
that the bar still sits untouched
above him. But the excitement
can only last a couple seconds.
Bishop has to focus on clearing
the 5.50-meter bar next.
Bishop did not make it over
the 5.50-meter bar, but the
5.45-meter bar that he did
clear Saturday at the Armory
Collegiate Invitational in New
York City was not only a per-
sonal record, but it put him at
No. 5 in the NCAA rankings.
“It was absolutely awesome,”
Bishop said. “We’ve been
working really hard this entire
fall…and it was just a mat-
ter of time before the results
showed.”
Bishop was not the only Jay-
hawk to have a good perfor-
mance at the two-day tourna-
ment last Friday and Saturday,
as the teams had a number of
personal records and victo-
ries, especially on the No. 11
ranked women’s team, which
took home fourth place overall
in a difcult feld.
“I thought it was a good meet
for both the men’s and wom-
en’s teams,” coach Stanley Red-
wine said. “We had some really
good performances on both
sides so we’re excited about
where we stand.”
One of these notable per-
formances came from senior
Diamond Dixon, who has
been tearing up the track all
season. On Friday, Dixon ran
a 1:10.06 in her frst career
500-meter race. Te time was
not only the best at the tourna-
ment and a school record, but
it was the ninth fastest time in
the event in NCAA history,
currently putting her at No.
1 in the NCAA
rankings. On Sat-
urday, less than 24
hours later, Dixon
took third in the
200-meter with
a time of 23.83,
the second best
time in her career,
which put her in-
side the top 25 for
that event as well.
“It was exciting to see [Dix-
on] win the [500-meter] with
the time that she ran,” Redwine
said.
Also breaking records with
the women’s 4x800 meter relay
team. Te team of freshman
Whitney Adams, sophomore
Kelli McKenna, freshman
Lydia Saggau and sophomore
Rhavean King posted a com-
bined time of 8:51.19, taking
the victory by over fve sec-
onds and breaking a school
record that stood for over 30
years. Te quartet’s time was
also the fastest time in the
NCAA so far this season.
On the men’s side, besides
Bishop’s career performance,
junior James Wilson also set a
personal best in the 3,000-me-
ter race. Wilson crossed the
fnish line at 8:11.09, giving
him the event victory and put-
ting him in the top fve in the
Big 12 in the event.
Te Kansas track and feld
teams will be back in action
this Friday. Te teams will split
up, some athletes competing
in the Tyson Invitational in
Fayetteville, Ark., which starts
at noon on Friday Feb. 14,
and some athletes heading to
Ames, Iowa, for the ISU Clas-
sic, which kicks of at 11 a.m.
Friday morning.

Sophomore infielder Chaley Brickey throws the ball towards first during the April 24, 2013, softball game
against the UMKC Roos. The Jayhawks defeated the Roos 4-0.
Kansas sofball had an up
and down series at the Univer-
sity of Central Florida Invita-
tional this weekend, fnishing
1-2, falling against UCF and
South Dakota, while edging
out Chattanooga. Two of the
games, against LIU Brooklyn
and Fordham University were
canceled due to weather.
In the season opener against
UCF, sophomore Kelsey Kes-
sler had seven strikeouts,
walking two and allowed just
one hit.
UCF allowed Kansas two
hits. Te frst base hit of the
season for Kansas was by se-
nior Alex Jones. Te other Jay-
hawk connecting was junior
Maddie Stein.
In the second match of the
day, against South Dakota, the
Jayhawks fell to South Dakota,
5-1. Pitchers during the game
were junior Alicia Pille and
Jones. Pille recorded the loss,
allowing two hits and three
earned runs over the three
innings. While she struck out
fve, she also walked three.
Jones allowed one hit and two
runs, while committing two
errors.
On the ofensive side, the
Jayhawks recorded eight hits.
Sophomore Chaley Brickey,
senior Taylor Hatfeld and
Jones all connected twice.
Senior Ashley Newman
and freshman Harli Ridling
rounded out the other two
with one hit apiece.
Not helping the cause was
the fact that 12 Kansas run-
ners were stranded on base
during the game.
“What we were missing was
clutch hits,” said coach Megan
Smith.
Both games the next day
were rained out due to a storm
cell forming over the sofball
complex.
A win against Chattanooga
rounded out the Invitational.
Kessler was on the mound, re-
cording the win.
“Kelsey was dominant,” said
Smith. “She was dominant Fri-
day too, but we just couldn’t
scrape together a run for her.
We played as a team [today]
and it was good to get out of
here with a win.”
“[Kelsey] moved the ball re-
ally, really well, and her rise
ball was looking really good.
She was really posed and con-
fdent. You could tell she got
more confdent as the game
went on,” said Smith.
Kessler recorded a ca-
reer-best 15 strikeouts. She
allowed four hits, zero walks
and zero runs.
Five diferent Jayhawks re-
corded hits including Jones,
Newman, Brickey, Stein and
Hatfeld. Stein had two hits
on the day, with the rest of the
squad having one each.
Te win against Chattanoo-
ga gives the team momentum
as they prepare for their next
tournament starting Friday,
Feb.14.

“I thought it was a good meet for both the men’s and
women’s teams. We had some really good perfor-
mances on both sides so we’re excited about where
we stand.”
STANLEY REDWINE
Coach
SYRACUSE, N.Y. —
Another challenge. Another
challenge met.
C.J. Fair rebounded from
his worst game of the season
with 19 points, Jerami Grant
added 12 in an expanded
role down low, and No. 1
Syracuse beat Clemson 57-44
on Sunday night to remain
unbeaten.
No matter what or who
they’ve faced this season, the
Orange have found a way to
win.
Fair, who was 2 for 13 for a
season-low six points against
Notre Dame on Monday,
responded with an 8-for-13
shooting night in playing K.J.
McDaniels of Clemson to a
virtual standstill. McDaniels
also scored 19 and had a
game-high 10 rebounds,
three more than Fair, and
both played 39 minutes.
“It’s all about going to the
next game. You don’t want to
dwell on a good or bad game.
We had good rhythm coming
into this game,” Fair said. “I
just needed to be aggressive
and not really force things.
Coach is always stressing
that. Tat’s what I was trying
to do, play of my teammates.
“Without wearing myself
out, I wanted to wear him
(McDaniels) out,” Fair said.
“When the best player on the
opposite team is guarding
you, you want to make their
job hard. I just wanted to
keep him busy.”
Syracuse (23-0, 10-0
Atlantic Coast Conference)
extended its school record
for wins to start a season
and matched the program
mark for consecutive wins,
established in the 1916-
17 and 1917-18 seasons.
It was the third meeting
between the teams and frst
in Syracuse, and the Orange’s
frst victory.
“Tey have very good pieces
that ft together,” Clemson
coach Brad Brownell said.
“Everybody has a role. Tey
embrace their role. Tey’re
very unselfsh. Tere doesn’t
look to be any jealousy.”
Syracuse has faced a slow
pace for most of the season
and when the Orange went
ahead 48-37 on Tyler Ennis’
lefy layup with 6:56 to play,
coach Jim Boeheim could
breathe a sigh of relief.
“You really don’t want to
be behind in a slow game,”
Boeheim said. “Tere aren’t
going to be a lot of points
scored.”
Tis victory came with
the 6-foot-8 Grant playing
substantial time in the
second half at center with
starter Rakeem Christmas
on the bench with four fouls
and Baye Moussa Keita next
to him with a sprained right
knee. A month ago, before
hulking sophomore center
Dajuan Coleman was lost for
the season to a knee injury,
Syracuse had 15 fouls to give
at the position.
“It’s fne. Whatever my
team needs,” Grant said. “I
think that’s what makes us a
great team. I need to get used
to it. I’ve just got to know
where all the rebounds are,
know where other people
are.”
It was the 10th time
Clemson (15-7, 6-4) had
faced the No. 1 team in the
nation, and the Tigers have
yet to win. Te last time
Clemson played a No. 1 team
was against North Carolina,
an 86-81 loss in the 2008
ACC tournament, and the
Tigers’ last true road game
against the nation’s No. 1
team was Feb. 8, 2004, an 81-
55 loss at Duke.
“It was frustrating,” Jaron
Blossomgame said. “Tere
were some good things, but
from a team standpoint, we’re
all competitors. We want to
win. We feel like every game
we go into we can win.”
Trevor Cooney fnished
with 11 points for the Orange
and Ennis had six points, fve
assists and one turnover.
Syracuse shot 44.4 percent
(24 of 54) and held the best
defensive team in the nation
to 14-of-41 shooting (34.1
percent). Te Orange also
committed just fve turnovers
and dominated the paint, 32-
14.
Syracuse led by nine at the
break and extended the lead
to 39-27 on Fair’s nice scoop
of the glass with 15:40 lef.
Jordan Roper started the
surge with a 3 from the right
wing, McDaniels followed
with a free throw and a dunk,
and Josh Smith’s hook in the
lane pulled Clemson to 42-37
with 10:41 to play.

Kansas narrowly falls to
Iowa State on the road
Syracuse tops Clemson
57-44 for 23rd in row

AMIE JUST/KANSAN
Senior Sofiia Filatova comes into the last turn in the 200 yard butterfly. Filatova swam a 2:08.77, winning the
event.
Close swims defned the
weekend in Ames, Iowa, where
the Jayhawks and Cyclones
dueled it out in the water.
Even though Kansas had a
one-point lead afer Friday’s
races, they couldn’t hold on, as
they fell 161.5-138.5 in the last
regular-season meet before
the Big 12 Championship.
Friday’s events were led by
senior Morgan Sharp. She
fought her way to a win in the
200-meter freestyle (1:51.24).
Sharp narrowly beat her
Iowa State opponent by six-
hundredths of a second. She
also was a part of the 200-yard
medley relay team that won
(1:45.83).
“She led the team today,”
said coach Clark Campbell.
“She out-touched for the win
by six-hundredths of a second.
Dual meets are weighted by
winning events and by out-
touching competitors. We are
in a better position going into
[Saturday]. It was easy to see
that she was not going to be
denied getting to the wall frst.
I saw fre in her the last 25
yards of both races.”
Two other swimmers that
helped the Jayhawks on the
frst day of competition were
sophomore Chelsie Miller,
who placed frst in the 200-
yard butterfy (2:04.68) and
sophomore Bryce Hinde, who
tied for frst in the 10-yard
breaststroke (1:04.95).
“Te Iowa State swimmer
that Bryce tied with has
already qualifed for the
NCAA Championships,”
Campbell said. “It was a good
race for her since she has been
struggling since coming back
from Christmas. It was a good
race for her to take into the
Big 12 Championships.”
On the second day of
competition, Kansas put
up winning performances
by freshman Pia Pavlic
and Miller. Pavlic won the
100-yard butterfy by one-
hundredth of a second (57.77).
Miller took home the gold in
the 200-yard IM with a time
of 2:06.44.
Senior Alison Lusk swam
a season best time (for dual
meets) in the 200-yard
breaststroke (2:21.10).
“Tat was Alison’s fastest
in-season time outside of
the winter national meet,”
Campbell said. “It was one of
her best dual-meet swims all
year.”
Sharp also put up points on
Saturday, fnishing second in
the 100-yard freestyle (52.55).
Te team fared well in diving
with senior Alyssa Golden
and sophomore Meredith
Brownell placing second
(271.35) and third (260.48)
respectively.
“We swam well, but not well
enough to win,” Campbell
said. “Tey were the stronger
team today.”
Up next for the Jayhawks
is the Big 12 Championship
in Austin, Texas. Kansas has
three weeks of preparation
before they dive in Feb. 26 to
March 1.
