For most of the student pres

idential and vice presidential
candidates running in this
year’s election, Tursday night
marked their frst debate expe-
rience. Each of the presidential
candidates admitted to being
nervous, but remained com-
posed and articulated their
Even afer the cameras
stopped rolling and audience
members began to leave, the
questions weren’t over. Te
Kansan caught up with pres-
idential candidates Kevin
Hundelt of Crimson & True,
Morgan Said of Grow KU and
MacKenzie Oatman of Jay-
hawkers to talk more about the
Do you think you were able to
genuinely represent yourself as a
candidate and as a student?
KH: I hope so, but I’m not
perfect. Tere are some times
at the beginning when I
thought, “Dang, I should’ve
said that when I was speak-
ing.” I hate that, but I think for
the most part I talked up my
strengths, but also made the
audience aware of my weak-
nesses, and that’s what being
a leader is — to be that front
man to lead and motivate.
MS: Honesty is the best pol-
icy. I’m not trying to be a poli-
tician. I’m just trying to do the
right thing and my team is too,
which is why we work so well
together because it isn’t polit-
ical for us. It’s very black and
white. It’s very, “this is wrong
and we can make it right.” We
feel that it’s our job as students
and stewards of the University
to move forward with these
ideas and make sure the stu-
dent body gets to beneft.
MO: I think we focused on
issues more than personal
qualifcations. I don’t feel like
this necessarily showed me as
a student very well. I feel like
this was more targeted toward
initiatives and feasibility ques-
tions, but that’s the most con-
fusing thing. We can put an in-
fographic up on Facebook that
has a title, but nobody proba-
bly reads what’s under it and
that’s a two sentence descrip-
tion anyway. It was a really
good opportunity to clear up
some of those misconceptions.
Is there something you wish
you had said differently?
KH: Tis isn’t an individual
efort, this is a group efort. I
am one person. I’ve got, like,
eight people behind me that
are doing more work than I
am, and they’re doing awe-
some. I think I should’ve rec-
ognized them for that.
MS: Lots of “ums.” Tat’s
what I always notice. I
would’ve liked to discuss more
about our individual platforms
from all sides — even the oth-
er coalitions. I haven’t gotten
to hear their full pitches either,
so it would’ve been interest-
ing and exciting to hear what
they’re working on from their
end and see how they all stack
MO: I think it’s better to have
a positive campaign and never
go negative, but I would def-
nitely say that we’ve drawn out
a timeline over our one year
to make sure that we can have
all this happen, even though,
obviously, we can’t anticipate
road bumps.
What was the most memorable
part of Thursday night?
KH: It all happened so fast, I
felt like I just walked in. I really
liked listening to people’s sto-
ries and everyone’s individual
backgrounds. It really stands
out to me and shows the pas-
sion that everyone has. I want
everyone to win, but this is a
MS: When you’re sitting
at the podium speaking to a
room of 100 people and you
lock eyes with familiar fac-
es and people on your team
and they’re nodding at you
because they’re excited about
what you’re saying, it’s so re-
warding. It makes you feel like
you’re doing something right
and it brings this team feeling
and family feeling. Tat’s what
I’ll take away — remembering
that these aren’t my ideas, but I
get to represent these ideas on
behalf of my entire team.
MO: Being someone who sat
in this room their freshman
year, I remember looking at
the student body president
then, and it just really came
full circle more so in this
moment than any other time
during this whole process.

PAGE 2 Kansas Legislators pass new open carry bill
Kate Cowger wants to brag
about how productive and ca-
pable she feels.
“I can’t just go up to peo-
ple and say, ‘I got out of bed
today. Isn’t that so cool? Did
you know I’m in school? Tat’s
awesome,’” she said.
Cowger has struggled with
mental illness since she was 8
years old. Now a sophomore
from Topeka, she gets good
grades and is involved in stu-
dent organizations like KU
Active Minds and the Com-
mission on the Status of Wom-
“I’m really excited about the
direction my life is going, and
I’m so proud of myself for be-
ing excited,” she said.
She used to not be able to get
excited about anything.
She started displaying symp-
toms of depression at the age
of 8. She felt unmotivated and
isolated. It was hard for her to
connect with people.
Te older she got and the
more responsibilities she
had, Cowger felt more over-
whelmed. She didn’t have
close relationships. Without
noticing, she would go weeks
without talking to friends like
Rachel Hagan, which would
confuse and upset them, caus-
ing her to withdraw further.
“Tere were a lot of times
when our relationship was
uneven when she was ill and
we both resented it — proba-
bly her more than me,” Hagan
Cowger was doing poorly in
school. Watching her friends’
enthusiasm about future plans,
like becoming a marine biolo-
gist, she felt like she was ruin-
ing her life.
“I was jealous of people who
could get excited,” she said.
Cowger wanted something
that she could be good at.
Anorexia was about control.
It was something she could
empirically measure — some-
thing she felt she was good at.
“I felt motivated to do it,
which was so diferent,” Cow-
ger said.
At the age of 14, she decided
to lose weight. Anorexia wasn’t
about losing weight to look at-
tractive and get attention. She
wanted to disappear by mak-
ing herself as small as possible.
“I just felt so bad,” she said.
“I felt so detached and unmo-
tivated that I wanted to just cut
of completely and disappear.”
Cowger liked to test how
long she could go without eat-
ing. If she planned out not eat-
ing until Saturday and messed
up, she would punish herself
by nothing but three Ritz
crackers and a glass of water a
day for a week.
When Cowger would try to
get out of bed in the morning,
she would lose vision for 30
seconds and her ears would
ring. She’d have to sit still be-
fore she could stand up. She
felt a sense of accomplish-
ment from being shaky and
light-headed throughout the
“I interpreted it as meaning
I was doing it right,” she said.
She liked feeling empty. It
made her feel clean.
Cowger went to a small high
school with only 28 people in
her class. Cowger said she was
underweight and very sick. Ev-
erybody knew.
“It was very obvious that I
was not doing well,” she said.
Student excited about future
after mental illness recovery

E-cigarettes banned from campus buildings
Students and faculty at the
University of Kansas can now
receive a fne between $100
and $500 for using electron-
ic cigarettes within 20 feet of
any building on the Lawrence
and Edwards campuses.
Te “no smoking” policy
has been at the University
since July of 1993. In Febru-
ary, the University updated
the policy to include e-ciga-
rettes. However, students may
be unaware of this.
“Additional research has
begun to demonstrate the
health issues associated with
electronic cigarettes,” said
Ola Faucher, University hu-
man resources director, in an
email. “KU consulted with
physicians at KU Medical
Center to learn more about
those concerns. Based on that
feedback, it was determined
that it would be advisable to
prohibit the use of electron-
ic cigarettes by revising our
smoking policy.”
Te policy reads, “No smok-
ing, including the use of
electronic cigarettes, or to-
bacco use is permitted within
twenty feet of any part of any
campus building, including
overhangs, or within twenty
feet of air intakes.”
Exclusions to the policy
include Student Housing
(residential halls, scholarship
halls and apartments) where
students are allowed to use
e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco
and snuf.
Carson Lee, a sophomore
from Olathe, is a student
who smokes e-cigarettes. He
says e-cigarettes are a better,
healthier alternative to ciga-
Open carry law passes legislature
Kansas Legislators passed a
bill on Saturday, April 6, that
would further promote the
open carrying of frearms in
HB 2578 would allow the
open carrying of frearms
across the state of Kansas if
it is approved by Gov. Sam
Brownback. Te bill also
takes away local ofcials’
abilities to regulate the pos-
session of frearms within
their respective jurisdiction.
Buildings and municipalities
may post signage stating that
they do not allow the open
carrying of frearms on the
entrances to their buildings,
and may also enforce secu-
rity measures such as metal
detectors in the entrances to
their buildings to prohibit
the carrying of frearms.
Sen. Pat Pettey, a Democrat
from Kansas City, Kan., who
opposes the legislation, said
that although the bill pro-
vides freedom to citizens’
second amendment, it may
infringe upon other peoples’
capacity to feel safe in a work
environment or public space.
She has been an advocate of
putting community centers,
mental health centers and
libraries under the same ex-
emption that K-12 schools
are currently under.
Pettey is also concerned
that the cost of implement-
ing security measures in
buildings across the state
of Kansas takes away from
other areas where the money
could be better put to use.
“Te cost for a metal de-
tector is $35,000, and the
average cost for a guard is
$25,000 a year,” Pettey said.
“So that is a total of $60,000
to implement.” She also
pointed out that the cost for
a security employee is a con-
tinual cost.
Te gun legislation that
was passed last year placed a
Kansas Legislators passed legislation in the House on Sat., April
5, that would allow open carry across the entire state.
Sen. Pat Pettey, D-Kansas City, voted against the bill
because she said the bill takes away from local officials
to set their own restrictions.
Shawn Kaylor, owner of S&S Tactical, said that the legislation
would not affect the City of Lawrence because open carry is
already legal in Lawrence.

Nobody likes to be bullied
— including professors. Dr.
Robert Harrington, a pro-
fessor in the Department of
Psychology and Research in
Education, teaches a course
about bullying prevention and
intervention, which includes
the seldom-considered issue of
students bullying professors.
He has researched the subject,
and says it happens here and at
other universities. Te follow-
ing are excerpts from a recent
interview with Harrington:
You teach one of the Midwest’s
only courses on bullying that ad-
dresses a topic that people usu-
ally don’t associate with bullying:
students bullying educators. How
often does this type of bullying
happen at the University?

RH: I don’t have exact stats,
because that would have
meant I discussed this with all
faculty over a period of time. I
would say that from what I can
see it happens.
I want to make it clear that
faculty can bully students too.
Faculty are just as culpable.
Te reason why I got inter-
ested in University professors
bullied by students is because
most people think it’s impos-
sible, because there’s a power
diferential and faculty have
the power. Tey get to grade,
they’re older than you. Tey
have a job, you don’t. Tey’re
hired by the University, you’re
not. Tey’re tenured, you’re
not, and those kinds of things.
It is possible.

What led you to study
student-to-professor bullying?
RH: I was giving a talk about
bullying across the lifespan,
and there was a fellow re-
searcher at Emporia State. She
said, “Can faculty be bullied?”
And I said, “Yeah, I think so.”
She said, “Because I have a
student that when I gave the
grades back, he didn’t do par-
ticularly well on the exam,
and the next class he brought
a tennis ball. He was squeez-
ing, wrenching at the tennis
ball, gritting his teeth.” And
she said to him, “Are you gon-
na throw that ball at me?” He
said, “Maybe.”
Tis was male on female bul-
lying. She said, “I didn’t know
what to do. I’m an untenured
professor. If I go report it, does
that mean I don’t know how
to control my class? Does that
mean I’m incompetent?” Tey
worry about that because some
schools still have a perspective
that, “Oh you can’t handle bul-
lying in your class? You can’t
handle classroom manage-
ment? Well that must mean
you’re not very well trained.”
If a student doesn’t under-
stand that that is wrong, it
could continue, and it could
How is bullying defined?
RH: Bullying, to start of
with, has three components.
It’s intentional infiction of
harm. Number two, it’s about
a power diferential. I’m bigger
than you, I’m stronger than
you or there’s something dif-
ferent about you. You’re gay. I
bully you for that. You’re black.
I bully you for that. You’re dis-
abled. I bully you for that. Any-
thing that makes you diferent
from me. Tat gives me, in my
mind, some power. It could be
about weight. It could be about
height. It could be about the
way you wear your hair. Te
third thing is it has to hap-
pen all the time. So you know
two kids getting in a fght on
the playground or somebody
insulting someone else, that’s
rude discourteous behavior,
but that’s not bullying, because
bullying happens over time. It’s
a relational problem. And that
can happen at universities.
Are bullies and their victims
usually male or female?
RH: Te research is pretty
clear that female professors are
more likely to be bullied than
male professors, by either fe-
male or male students.
Generally females are small-
er than guys. So what you’ll
hear is, “He came up to me,
face to face, and I felt really
intimidated.” You get a big guy
standing face-to-face to you,
and they don’t even have to say
much, and it can be quite in-
timidating. Some students will
use their physicality to get in
your face, too.
What does it look like when
students bully professors
about grades?
RH: Tere’s a big push to get
good grades because many
students want to go to grad-
uate school. We get into a lot
of diferent issues with grades.
It could be bullying professors
about, “I should’ve gotten an-
other point or two on this es-
say,” and the faculty member
is pushed into it to change that
Tere are faculty who don’t
want to go through grading
panels and having been here
34 years. I talk to faculty who
think, “Te student got a C.
Tey want a B+, fne, I just
can’t deal with this.” Now that’s

What should a professor do if
he or she is bullied?
RH: Bullying you can fip
around and it can become a
great learning experience. Let
me put it this way: You can be
really smart intellectually, but
if you are not smart emotion-
ally, we call that emotional in-
telligence, it doesn’t help a lot.
Emotional intelligence is how
you handle yourself in interre-
lationships. So for instance, if
you have good ideas, but you
are abrasive, if you don’t com-
municate you don’t problem
solve, it doesn’t help.

Professor speaks out about students bullying faculty
Adam Lower, a junior from
Wichita, traveled to New York
City last weekend to audition
for Broadway. He was one of
only 60 people to be consid-
ered for the show.
“I’d never been to New York
before, but I decided to fy out
by myself to audition for the
Broadway musical ‘Newsies,’”
Lower said.
Lower saw an ad online
and afer speaking with a cast
member from Broadway’s
“Cinderella,” he decided to
go audition. Afer learning
a short dance in 15 minutes,
Lower wasn’t chosen, but said
that for him the journey was
the best part.
“I remember he was really
excited about [auditioning],”
said his friend Taylor Rice, a
junior from Overland Park.
“He was looking up audition
videos. He downloaded the
whole soundtrack to the mu-
Lower showed up to audi-
tions three hours early to en-
sure his place.
“I watched the other guys
warm up and I was amazed by
the talent,” Lower said.
Lower is no stranger to tal-
ent. Troughout his varied
athletic career, Lower has
tumbled and dived. He has set
a diving record and placed in
Cheerleading Worlds. He’s also
a member of the University
Dance Company.
Lower credits his previous
sports with helping him excel
in dancing.
“Diving and tumbling con-
tribute to my ability to dance
because the sports taught me
body control and fexibility,”
Lower said.
Lower also uses other means
to improve his dancing.
“If [Lower’s] not in dance
class, he’s looking at dance
videos on YouTube. He al-
ways tries to improve himself
dance-wise. He always has a
new move to conquer,” Rice
Lower, a biology major and
residential assistant at Lewis
Hall, is involved in numerous
other activities.
“I’m involved in Alpha Tau
Omega fraternity, Able Hawks
and Allies and I have two jobs.
I have been a member of SUA
and Student Senate,” Lower
Slowly though, Lower is
starting to realize he can’t do
“Wanting to go to medical
school while also desiring to
audition for roles in New York,
Chicago and Los Angeles has
made me have to re-evaluate
my goals,” Lower said. “I’ve de-
cided to just go wherever my
heart leads me.”

feel like shrieking along
to my favorite Sparks
album today. It’s called
“Kimono My House,” and
it has a swell cover with a
picture of two women in
kimonos looking bubbly
and stereotypical. To think
that if they’d released
it today instead of in
1974, people would have
called that cover “cultural
appropriation” and cried
for the band to be flleted
on the cutting board of
tolerance. If you have so
few problems that you have
time to scold somebody
who isn’t Japanese for
wearing a kimono, I envy
you. Mostly because you
can use chopsticks; I always
look stupid eating Tryyaki
with a fork.
Tat was a joke. Don’t get
your kimono in a twist.
I belt the opening lines
and head to Tought
Catalog, because I’m
jonesing for some faux
outrage. A writer claims
she’s oppressed because
her Catholic university
didn’t want its name
attached to her women’s
studies department’s
production of “Te Vagina
Monologues.” She recalls
her performance, which
she and her friends dragged
their hyper-conservative
families to: “When you can
stare down a middle-aged
Irish-Catholic man… and
talk about your love of
pleasuring a woman, you
can truly do ANYTHING.”
Apparently, subjecting your
aging relatives to speeches
about your sex life is what
empowerment looks like
now. Who knew?
I fnish with Sparks and
put on Brian Eno’s “Taking
Tiger Mountain.” One lyric
jumps out at me.
“I’m wasting fngers
like I had them to spare
/ Plugging holes in the
You know, we once had
holes in the dikes of our
fundamental rights and
a generation of activists
with waterlogged fngers
held back the sea until our
government could plug the
holes more efectively.
But that didn’t stop
people from wanting to put
their fngers in things, and
now we’re convincing each
other that sitting on the
dike and putting our fngers
in our own orifces is just
as revolutionary as what
the old guard did in our
grandparents’ time.
So instead of yelling about
microaggressions on your
favorite millennial hive,
why not just thank those
who made sure you could
vote, go to school and get a
job, no matter the color of
your skin or the shape of
your crotch? Tink: these
people devoted their lives
to plugging that dike, so
you wouldn’t have to plug it
How do you repay them?
By using your precious
talent to rant about your
genitals? By guarding the
kimono factory, ensuring
the white man doesn’t use
your culture to sell albums?
If the progressives of the
past were here, they’d
probably tell you to quit
wallowing and show your
“oppressors” up. Tey didn’t
spend all that time holding
back the Zuiderzee for you
to just stay victims, did
Want more women

a woman looking for a
major, take some science
electives; you could be that
female scientist we need.
Can’t stand white folks
like Macklemore usurping

throngs of rabid fans.

s a waitress who
almost relies
solely on tips for
my income, I appreciated
where the article “Service
Workers Rely on Tips More
than Wages” was coming
from. Despite its good
intentions, applying the 15
percent standard for tipping
servers to all restaurants is
Tough the number came
from CNN, it fails to account
for diferent ways restaurants
divide the servers tips. A
lot of restaurants, including
mine, make servers tip
out hosts, bussers, kitchen
staf and bartenders by a
percentage of their total
sales. Your tip is not going
directly to the server. Most
servers make $2 to $3
each hour and whatever
tips people give them for
their service. Afer giving a
portion of my gratuity to all
these people at the end of the
day, sometimes I will make
less than minimum wage per
hour on slow nights, even if
people tip 10 to 15 percent.
Working weekends, when
it’s busier, can make up for
the diference. But that puts
someone in a hard situation
if they aren’t scheduled for
a weekend or need to take
those days of.
Te minimum you should
tip someone should be 20
percent if that person works
at a restaurant that has a bar,
hosts and bussers. Good or
bad service. If the restaurant
doesn’t have any of these,
then the 10 to 15 percent
range is acceptable. Tip
more if your server provided
excellent service. Do not go
out to eat if you don’t factor
in the cost of the tip. Please.
Something the article
could have also mentioned
is that most people don’t
realize what good service is.
I’ve been stifed for things
that were beyond my control
— the food or drinks taking
longer than usual, being sat
somewhere they disliked,
and so on. If your server can
guide you through the menu,
checks up on you and has
a friendly attitude they’re
doing their job well. Tip
them accordingly.
Serving without tips, or
without adequate tips, is not
a living wage. Appreciate
your servers.

Anonymous app ‘Yik Yak’
causes campus controversy
Yik Yak, the newest social
media craze, took over Law-
rence in a matter of days. Te
app is similar to Twitter in that
you can post your thoughts,
but what makes the app so
popular is the anonymity of
the posts. Once downloaded,
the app asks you for your lo-
cation and then places you in
a fve-mile radius range. Once
placed in that range, your
news feed is automatically
connected to the app users in
your fve-mile radius.
According to an article on, Yik Yak was
started by two Furman Uni-
versity students, Tyler Droll
and Brooks Bufngton. Te
makers of Yik Yak say that
this anonymity is what drives
the app in so many places, in-
cluding the app’s main website.
Te names of the makers aren’t
listed and everything is signed
from “Te Yak” or from no one
at all.
“Anonymity is powerful, for
better or for worse,” starts a
blog post from “Te Yak” on
the app’s ofcial website. “Peo-
ple ask us all the time why we
felt the need to make Yik Yak
anonymous, and the answer is
quite simple. It gives people a
blank slate to work from, efec-
tively removing all preconcep-
tions about them.”
University students’ posts
range from thoughts about
Joel Embiid and his decision to
stay or leave, to targeted com-
ments about specifc people or
Greek houses.
Panhellenic President Mag-
gie Young says that she and the
entire Panhellenic executive
committee are disappoint-
ed in the app and how it has
portrayed the Greek commu-
nity along with the University
“Tis is not the sort of thing
we stand for, nor is it some-
thing any of us would choose
to be a part of,” Young said.
“Although it’s easier said than
done, the chapters and people
who are specifcally referenced
should brush this kind of thing
of their shoulders. Te Greek
community has a lot of posi-
tive things to ofer, and letting
something as inconsequential
as this app cast a shadow over
that fact would honestly be sil-
ly, for lack of a better word.”
Not only is the app afecting
the Greek and the University
community, but it has afected
high school students all over
the country. Although the cre-
ators of the app say that Yik
Yak was originally created for
college students, the phenom-
enon is spreading fast in high
If you Google “Yik Yak,” nu-
merous articles pop up about
bullying problems in high
schools and the worries par-
ents have about the app. Al-
though a post gets deleted if it
is reported or if it is sent in as a
screen shot to Yik Yak, the post
was still able to be seen for the
amount of time it was up. But
even with these security pre-
cautions, bullying may still be
the least of parents’ worries.
According to an article from
the Hufngton Post, San Cle-
mente High School in Orange
County, Calif., was the latest
victim of a “Yik Yak attack.”
And this attack went far be-
yond bullying. It was used to
post a bomb threat that caused
a school-wide lockdown. Po-
lice were able to identify the
students who posted the threat
using the location settings
of the posts and the IP ad-
dresses of their phones. Tis
is only one of the many simi-
lar instances that Yik Yak has
Yik Yak may be the newest
craze, but like other social me-
dia apps, may not last long. A
Greek house or specifc person
may be the popular topic to rip
on today, but it will be some-
thing new tomorrow. With no
restrictions in the University
community as of yet, the only
thing for users to do is Yak on.

Free-to-play changes gaming industry landscape
As it has matured, the gam-
ing industry has had to make
changes. Most recently, the
way games are released and
are paid for have accounted
for some of those changes. In-
creasingly, video games are be-
ing released in a “free-to-play”
format, a monetization meth-
od originally pioneered in
Asian markets, such as South
Korea and China. Free-to-
play (F2P) strategies involve
releasing a game for free, but
charging for in-game purchas-
es of items, customizations or
other features. PlanetSide 2,
League of Legends and World
of Tanks are three well-known
F2P games on PC. However,
the format has made its biggest
North American impact in the
mobile gaming space, with
games such as Candy Crush
Saga, Clash of Clans, Plants vs.
Zombies 2 and others that are
dominating the market.
F2P has been criticized by
some as exploitative, preying
on a small fraction of the mar-
ket who may feel obligated to
buy every item they can or oth-
erwise be addicted to an F2P
game. Indeed some games, tar-
geted at children, have been set
up as scams, with things such
as $100 item packs. Others be-
lieve that F2P is a good strate-
gy for multiplayer-only games,
letting players pay for the kind
of experience they want for
less than a $60 retail prod-
uct bought in full. Gamers
have varying opinions on F2P
games and methods.
“I think that unless the mod-
el is very well done, it’s not
great,” said Max Driscoll, a
freshman from Lenexa. “Te
worst one is Dungeon Keeper.
It’s an old franchise, it came
out in the ‘90s. It was great
— it basically invented tower
defense… EA re-released it [as
an F2P game]. You’re under-
ground and it can take any-
where from four to 24 hours
to dig out one square without
buying something.”
Joe Bush, a freshman from
Overland Park, sees a more
positive side of the method.
“For the industry, I think, as
a whole it’s an efective way
to make your game palatable
afer a couple years, like Team
Fortress 2 was, because that
was getting kind of stagnant.
When they started adding
the free-to-play stuf like that
it also kind of gave you more
of an incentive to play,” Bush
Both Driscoll and Bush said
that Killer Instinct, a free-
to-play fghting game for the
Xbox One, is a good model
for the industry on how F2P
should work.
“Te free-to-play model for
this was you could get it for
free and you had one fghter
you could use online, and [the
fghter roster] would rotate
every month,” said Driscoll of
Killer Instinct.
“You could buy everything
for the price of a regular
game… it’s a good way to get
peoples’ interest… it’s like a
demo, or something like that,”
Bush said. “[Players] get that
frst taste and go for more of
However, it’s clear that un-
til F2P models, in general,
become more balanced in fa-
vor of gameplay, they have a
long way to go before they are
widely respected as a model.
Driscoll said, “I think, honest-
ly, it could have been a good
thing… for every one of your
good examples like Hearth-
stone, Killer Instinct or Brave-
ly Default, you have your Dun-
geon Keepers. Tey’re all over.
Just go to the App Store and
look at the list of things that
say ‘free.’”

he great modern flm
director Paul Tomas
Anderson once said
something to the efect of,
“We [flm directors] are really
messing up with the action
genre.” Anderson used harsher
language, but it might seem
that he’s right — at least from
an artistic and aesthetic per-
spective. Te formulaic, caged
plot structure of the American
action genre seems to lead
all of its flms down the same
bland, predictable road.
What I think Anderson for-
got, however, was that action
movies can still be pretty gosh
darn entertaining. “Non-
Stop” doesn’t transcend any
eternal struggles of man or
make any sweeping, grandiose
statements about the human
condition as Anderson’s flms
do, but it does provide 106
minutes of pretty much “non-
stop” (heh heh) entertain-
Te movie opens showing
troubled, alcoholic U.S. Air
Marshal Bill Marks (Liam
Neeson) boarding a seemingly
routine fight from New York
City to London. Afer taking
his seat, he begins some
friendly, but somber chit chat
with a giddy redhead named
Jen (Julianne Moore). He then
kicks back and prepares to
enjoy the fight — while keep-
ing a watchful, marshaly eye
out, of course. Suddenly, he
receives a creepy, threatening
text message from some-
one on board, even though
tapping into an air marshal’s
cell network is apparently a
federal ofense. Afer a little
back-and-forth texting banter,
Marks learns that the bad guy
wants $150 million wired into
an account or he’s going to…
wait for it… kill someone on
board every 20 minutes. Ahh!
Marks springs into action,
then seems to do everything
the exact opposite of how
a real air marshal would
probably do in this situation.
Te rest of the flm becomes
a whodunit race against the
clock as Marks scrambles to
fnd the cell-phone-wielding
“Non-Stop” is fast-paced and
truly keeps you guessing, but
despite being efectively sus-
penseful and action-packed,
it certainly has its weak
points. While the title refers
to the non-stop fight they
are on, it could just as easily
be referring to the non-stop
cheesiness that characterizes
the movie’s dialogue and piv-
otal plot elements. It is riddled
with clichés and it’s kind of
hard to watch at times.
Neeson basically plays an al-
coholic version of Bryan Mills
from the “Taken” franchise.
He’s tough, gruf and menac-
ing as ever — although one
guy in the movie still has the
stones to fght him in a tiny
airplane bathroom — and has
the same quietly kind side he
takes on in most of his newer
flms. Not much new here.
Moore is kind of a fsh out
of water in this movie. It
seems odd that an actress
who showed us so much
gut-wrenching emotion in
Oscar-worthy roles like Linda
Partridge in “Magnolia” or
Amber Waves in “Boogie
Nights” would stoop to this
level. Why would “Te Big
Lebowski’s” slick, no-nonsense
Maude choose to be in a nutty
movie like this? Te world
may never know.
All in all, “Non-Stop” is a
ridiculous, yet very fun ride to
take. If you’re looking for any
kind of romantic, artistic or
Oscar-quality cinema, skip it.
But if action movies are your
thing then there’s plenty of
really good stuf for you here.

‘Non-Stop’ offers non-stop entertainment

Letterman’s departure
will reshape late-night
NEW YORK — Jimmy Fallon's
fast start replacing Jay Leno on
the "Tonight" show the past two
months had a secondary ef-
fect: David Letterman suddenly
seemed old.
The Top 10 list, the ironic de-
tachment, even the set at the Ed
Sullivan Theater. Time doesn't
stop for comedy legends, or su-
perstars of any sort. Letterman,
who announced Thursday that he
will retire from late-night televi-
sion sometime in 2015, had to
feel it.
CBS now faces the challenge
of moving on in a reordered late-
night world at a time the two Jim-
mys — NBC's Fallon and ABC's
Kimmel — have a significant
head start.
When Jay Leno left in February,
Letterman lost his foil — the
man whose victory in the com-
petition to replace Johnny Carson
two decades ago he never let go.
Leno was someone who spoke his
language, though, a generational
compadre, and when he left, Let-
terman was alone.
Fallon and Kimmel have a dif-
ferent style, more good-natured
and less mocking of the entire
concept of a talk show.
It's hard to know what role the
new competition played in Letter-
man's decision. His last contract
extension, signed before Fallon
took over, was for one year. In
the past, he's done multi-year
The first time Leno left late-
night, Letterman ascended to
the throne. Not this time. Since
Fallon began at "Tonight," his
show has averaged 5.2 million
viewers, while Letterman has
averaged 2.7 million and Kimmel
2.65 million, the Nielsen com-
pany said. Last year Letterman
averaged 2.9 million and Kimmel
2.5 million, so the direction was
Much of late-night now is
about making an impression
in social media, or in highlight
clips that people can watch on
their devices and spread around
the next day. Fallon and Kimmel
have excelled in spreading their
comedy beyond their time slots;
Letterman has barely bothered.

When Cowger had her frst
manic episode, she didn’t sleep
for days on end. She’d spend all
night reorganizing her book-
shelf, frst alphabetically, then
by color, then by which she
liked best, then by category.
She has since been diagnosed
with bipolar II disorder.
“I feel wound up and frantic
[during a manic episode], like
I have to get everything done,”
she said.
During this episode, she
started showing symptoms of
a diferent eating disorder: bu-
At frst, she would eat some-
thing and think, “Tat’s good. I
can have one more bite.” Soon,
she would be eating anything
and everything she could as
fast as she could.
She would realize what she
had done, freak out and force
herself to throw up.
Cowger said she would binge
and purge 10 to 15 times a
day, sometimes eating 3,000 to
4,000 calories in 20 minutes.
Bulimia was an addiction.
Going from uncomfortably
full to completely empty made
her feel good.
She gained 20 to 30 pounds,
putting her back into a nor-
mal weight range. She looked
“I felt a lot worse physically,”
she said.
Bulimia brought on diges-
tive problems. She sometimes
threw up blood. She had stom-
ach and esophagus ulcers. Te
strain of vomiting would pop
blood vessels in her face or
eyes. Her teeth are still sensi-
tive from all the stomach acid.
“I felt like I deserved to feel
that bad,” Cowger said.
When people started catch-
ing on, she had to be creative.
If people were suspicious of
her going to the bathroom,
she’d turn on music loudly in
her room and empty a vomit
bucket at night when every-
one else was asleep. She’d skip
school to hop between difer-
ent fast food restaurants and
purge at a Walmart public
Afer her junior year of high
school, Cowger dropped out.
“I just couldn’t get myself to
go,” she said.
Cowger frmly believed she
would be dead before the age
of 25.
“I didn’t think I was trying to
kill myself, but I didn’t care if
I did,” she said. “I didn’t really
care about anything.”
At 18, she was having a really
bad night. She called a suicide
hotline, which recommended
she talk with her parents, who
agreed to take her to a thera-
“I did it for the people
around me more than myself,”
Cowger said. “I didn’t want to
upset them.”
Cowger fdgeted through
her frst therapy session. She
looked at her hands, her lap
— anywhere but directly at her
therapist — because she was so
Her therapist was calm and
listened non-judgmentally. It
was validating.
Te people around her were
excited Cowger was getting
help, so she stuck with it. She
went through intensive ther-
apy and diferent medication
She received her GED di-
ploma in December 2011 and
applied to the University of
For Cowger, getting better
happened really fast.
“She got more vibrant,” Ha-
gan said. “She woke up again.
She started being interested in
more things and more able to
do things.”
Hagan, a junior from Tope-
ka, has known Cowger since
they were in ffh grade, but
has seen her less when they
went to diferent schools. As
Cowger went through more
therapy and got better and
better, Hagan saw more of her.
Cowger was emotionally avail-
able and Hagan slowly realized
they could rely on each other.
Tey’ve been dating for a
year and a half.
Hagan keeps Cowger ac-
countable. When Cowger is
tempted by self-destructive
thoughts, she thinks, “If you
do this, you’re going to have
to tell Rachel. Do you want to
have this conversation?”
“Even afer you get better
and start doing well, it’s still
a struggle,” Cowger said. “I
still have struggles that people
without mental illness don’t
Cowger can’t do all-night-
ers — it would take weeks to
recover from a possibly trig-
gered manic episode or to stay
on her medicine. She always
has to look at her classes’ late
policies because she can’t guar-
antee that she won’t lapse into
a depressive stage.
When people are recovering
from a physical illness such as
the fu, people would ask them
how they’re feeling. People
should feel comfortable asking
how people recovering from a
mental illness are feeling too,
Cowger said.
She wants to reduce the stig-
ma around mental illness.
“I think the best way to do
that is to talk about it.”

restrictions placed upon open
carry, but it does have restric-
tions placed upon its con-
cealed carry law, requiring
that individuals be licensed
under the Kansas Personal
and Family Protection Act to
carry a concealed weapon.
One local gun retailer,
Shawn Kaylor, the owner of
S&S Tactical, says that he
doesn’t anticipate the change
in the law to afect the City
of Lawrence, but does think
that it would be nice if the law
was uniform across the entire
“Open carry was already
legal before this, and every-
where that open carry is legal,
crime is not — people that
carry guns don’t go out and
just shoot people,” Kaylor
said. “Tat’s a very hard mis-
conception that people have.
Especially with concealed
carry, they have proven that
they have a background that
they haven’t done illegal
things. Tey are licensed, they
are allowed to do it. Tere are
other people that you need to
be worried about.”
A call was placed to Law-
rence Police Department’s
public afairs ofcer Sgt. Trent
Mckinley on Friday to discuss
how it will afect Lawrence,
but McKinley was out of the
ofce until Monday.

“Tere’s no fre, there’s no
fame,” he said. “It’s just water
that turns into vapor. If you
smoke an electric cigarette you
aren’t harming the environ-
ment and you aren’t harming
anyone around you.”
When asked about the “no
smoking” policy, which now
includes e-cigarettes, Lee said
he doesn’t think the University
strictly enforces the policy, but
that if he were fned for using
an e-cigarette he would fght it.
While the University no lon-
ger allows the use of e-ciga-
rettes in or around campus
buildings, places such as Te
Burger Stand, 23rd Street
Brewery and Salty Iguana al-
low e-cigarettes to be used.
Alex Jaumann, a junior from
Westminster, Colo., also uses
e-cigarettes as an alternative
when he can’t smoke hookah.
Jaumann lived in the scholar-
ship halls last year and said he
would use e-cigarettes in his
room and sometimes in the
shared kitchen when cooking
for himself.
“I fnd the policy a little ex-
cessive at this point since
e-cigarettes don’t leave a smell
that lasts more than a second
or two,” he said.
However, Jaumann does
sympathize with people who
feel uncomfortable around
smoke and smoke-like vapor.
“I don’t completely disagree
with the policy since it still al-
lows for vaporizing in people’s
rooms on campus,” Jaumann

UConn advances to
national championship
Connecticut forward Tyler Olander (10) celebrates with teammates at the end of an NCAA Final Four tournament
college basketball semifinal game against Florida on Saturday in Arlington, Texas. Connecticut won 63-53.
Shabazz Napier looked up to-
ward the Connecticut fans in
the crowd at AT&T Stadium
and held up one fnger.
Te Huskies had just beaten
overall No. 1 seed Florida 63-
53 on Saturday in the Final
Four. But Napier's gesture had
another meaning.
"One more to go," the frst-
team All-American said.
Te victory got them into
Monday night's title game
against Kentucky and it was
as good an efort as any team
came up with this season
against the Gators, who came
in having won 30 straight
games, a streak that started
afer a loss to the Huskies four
months ago.
"We have been in a lot of dog
fghts," Napier said. "We are
just an experienced group. We
believe in each other and con-
tinue to believe in each other.
... We are going to win. Tat is
what we do."
Especially against Florida.
Te Gators lost only three
times this season — once to
Wisconsin in the second game
of the season and twice to the
Huskies. Te frst time was on
Dec. 2 when a foul-line jump-
er at the buzzer by Napier gave
UConn a 65-64 victory.
Tey didn't have to wait that
long to know they had this
Te Huskies, the seventh
seed in the East Regional, will
meet Kentucky, the eighth seed
in the Midwest, on Monday
night. Tere have only been
two No. 8 seeds to reach the
championship game since the
feld expanded in 1985 — Vil-
lanova in 1985 and Butler in
2011. Connecticut is the frst
No. 7 seed to reach the title
Tis will be the frst time
since 1966 that two teams that
weren't in the tournament the
year before meet for the ti-
tle. Te teams that year were
Texas Western and Kentucky.
Connecticut was ineligible last
season because of academic
issues and Kentucky played in
the NIT.
Napier helped seal this game
with about 2 minutes to play
when he made two free throws
for a 59-47 lead. Tat margin
was the defcit the Huskies
(31-8) faced in the opening
minutes afer a cold shooting
"I knew we was going to get
back in the game. Tey knew
we was going to get back in
the game," second-year coach
Kevin Ollie said. "We live and
die on defense and hopefully
everybody understands that."
With Ollie in a defensive
stance himself most of the
game, the Huskies sidetracked
the Florida ofense by shutting
down point guard Scottie Wil-
bekin and 3-point specialist
Michael Frazier II, who scored
a combined seven points.
"UConn was very good with
their pressure on our guards
and we didn't convert points,"
Florida coach Billy Donovan
said. "Tey scored a lot on as
well. So all the credit goes to
Te Huskies were impressive
on ofense, shooting 55.8 per-
cent (24 of 43) from the feld
against a team that allowed op-
ponents to shoot 39.9 percent
this season.
"Whomever I put in the
game, it was positive and they
were productive," Ollie said.
DeAndre Daniels had 20
points and 10 rebounds for
Connecticut, and it was his
two 3-pointers in a span of
1:43 that helped ignite the
Huskies afer they had fallen
behind 16-4.
"DeAndre was huge for us,"
Ollie said. "He stepped up and
really rebounded for us and
was pretty much unstoppable."
Napier, who leads the team in
almost every category, fnished
with 12 points and six assists.
He defnitely got the better of
Wilbekin in a matchup of se-
nior point guards, both confer-
ence players of the year.
Napier had two key sec-
ond-half steals on Wilbekin,
both of which led to UConn
baskets. Wilbekin was both-
ered by cramps throughout the
"It was right when the second
half started. I was getting a lit-
tle cramp, it wasn't too bad,"
Wilbekin said. "I got out of the
game and got some ice and it
wasn't really a problem from
then on."
Te Connecticut guards
were. Florida had 11 turnovers
and a season-low three assists.
"Tat's crazy, that's not usu-
ally what we do," Wilbekin
said. "All credit goes to them
and their guards and the way
they were denying and putting
pressure on us."
Patric Young had 19 points
for Florida (36-3), which had
won all of its NCAA tour-
nament games by at least 10
points. Te Gators shot just
38.8 percent from the feld (19
of 49), well of their 46.1 per-
cent average.
"Once they got their defense
set, I thought we had a hard
time dealing with their pres-
sure up top," Donovan said.
Te Huskies used 3-pointers
to open things up inside, hit-
ting 5 of 12 from long range.
Tey had such an easy time
scoring inside that they had
only one basket outside the
paint in the fnal 20 minutes,
shooting 63.6 percent (14 of
Florida was just one for 10
from 3-point range and the
Gators' most efective weap-
on through most of the game
was an ofensive rebound of
a miss. Tey had 12 in the
game and turned them into 13
Florida's defense — which
was No. 3 in the nation — was
sufocating early and the Ga-
tors took a 16-4 lead with a 7-0
run that was capped by a drive
by Wilbekin with 9:47 to play.
Te Huskies suddenly found
their shooting touch. Con-
necticut made four straight
shots and three of them were
from beyond the 3-point line
— two by Daniels and anoth-
er by Ryan Boatright. A drive
by Napier gave the Huskies the
lead for good, 23-22 with 2:20
lef in the half.
In the second half, the Hus-
kies stretched the lead to 59-
47 with 2:04 lef, turning the
12-point defcit into a 12-point
lead. Tey are in the title for
the fourth time, the frst three
all wins under coach Jim Cal-
Florida was looking to reach
the national championship
game for the frst time since re-
peating as champions in 2007.

group. We believe in each

in each other. ... We are going
to win. That is what we do.”

Jones’ playoff chip-
in wins Houston Open
HUMBLE, Texas — Matt Jones
earned his first trip to the Mas-
ters with a remarkable 42-yard
chip-in on the first playoff hole,
outdueling Matt Kuchar on his
way to winning the Houston Open
on Sunday.
The win is the first on the PGA
Tour for the Australian, who made
a 46-foot birdie putt on the 72nd
hole to reach the playoff. He end-
ed it one hole later, chipping over
the right front bunker on the 18th
and watching it roll in.
Kuchar, who bogeyed the final
hole of regulation, then missed
his shot to give Jones the win.
Jones, who began the day six
shots back of Kuchar, shot a fi-
nal-round 66 and ended the tour-
nament 15 under overall.
In September, Jones lipped out
an 8-foot birdie putt on the last
hole of the BMW Championship.
Jones sent his tee shot on the
first hole of the playoff into the
right fairway bunker. He then
landed just short of the green-
side bunker with his second shot,
while Kuchar found the bunker
from the fairway.
It was the second straight miss
of the 18th green from the fairway
for Kuchar, who sent his fairway
metal on the 72nd hole into the
water before recovering to make
bogey and reach the playoff.
Jones didn't leave Kuchar any
room for error in the playoff,
sending his chip over the green-
side bunker and watching as it
rolled in.
Golfers were sent off in three-
somes early Sunday morning for
the second day in a row because
of the threat of strong storms in
the Houston area. The rain, heavy
at times, began early during the
final pairing's round, but the pros
finished without any delays.
Kuchar started the day with a
four-shot lead over Garcia and
Cameron Tringale, but he bogeyed
the first hole and was one over on
the front nine.
That allowed Jones, who began
the day at nine under, to briefly tie
for the lead at 14 under following
a birdie on the par-4 11th.
Kuchar answered moments later
with a 12-foot birdie putt on No.
10. The putt gave him a one-shot
lead at 15 under, a lead that
seemed solid until the final hole
of regulation.
With Kuchar watching from the
tee, Jones bounced back from a
bogey on the 17th to make a 46-
foot birdie putt on No. 18. That
sent him to 15 under overall, one
shot back of the lead.
Kuchar hit the fairway before his
second shot found the water —
opening the door for Jones to earn
the win and his improbable trip to
next week's Masters.
Garcia finished in third at 13
under, while Tringale was fourth
at 12 under.
Rory McIlroy matched the low
round of the tournament with a
seven-under 65 on Sunday, fin-
ishing tied for seventh at eight
under overall.
Phil Mickelson, who won the
tournament in 2011, was one un-
der on Sunday and finished sev-
en under overall in a tie for 12th
— a week after he was forced
to withdraw from the Texas Open
because of a muscle pull in his
right side.

Jayhawks lose
weekend matches
It was a rough weekend for the
Kansas women’s tennis team,
who dropped two home matches
against both Texas and Baylor.
On Friday, the Lady Bears domi-
nated doubles play taking all three
matches to gain the doubles point.
The Lady Bears went on to grab
the first singles victory when Bay-
lor’s Alex Clay defeated Kansas’
Caroline Henderson 6-2, 6-1. The
next Kansas player to go down was
Maria Cardona, who fell to 48th-
ranked Jordaan Sanford 1-6, 3-6.
Paulina Los tried to bring the Jay-
hawks back with a 6-3, 6-3 victory,
but Baylor soon clinched the match
on court three when Blair Shankle
took down Kansas’ Maria Luduena
7-5, 6-2. Dylan Windon would go on
to beat No.74, Ema Burgic of Baylor
for the second and last Kansas win
of the day.
Baylor remains 5-0 in Big 12 play
as Kansas falls to 2-3 in the con-
On Sunday, the Jayhawks were
looking for a big victory against
No. 25 Texas on Senior Day. Seniors
Claire Dreyer, Los and Windom
each received framed jerseys for
the occasion.
The Longhorns quickly spoiled
the celebration and got off to a
fast start sweeping the Jayhawks
for the easy doubles point. No.18
Breaunna Addison of Texas easily
handled Windom 6-1, 6-0. Cardo-
na struggled on court two against
Texas’ Elizabeth Begley, falling
1-6, 2-6 in the match. Over on
court three, no. 86 Ratnika Batra
of Texas got the best of Luduena,
who lost 1-6, 2-6. On courts four
and five, Texas handled Los and
Anastasija Trubica 6-2, 6-3 and
6-3, 6-4.
The only Jayhawk winner of the
day was freshman Morgan Barn-
hill, who came back against her
opponent on court six. Barnhill fell
2-6 in the first set, but came back
in dominating fashion to win the
second set 6-2. Barnhill would go
on to win the tiebreaker and the
match 10-7.
The Jayhawks are now 2-4 in the
Big 12 and 11-8 overall in the sea-
The girls will hit the road for two
weeks to close out conference play.
This week, Kansas will take on 4-3
Texas Tech and 3-4 TCU.

Morgan Barnhill returns a serve against Texas. Barnhill is the only Jayhawk to win her match yesterday; Texas
beat Kansas 6-1.
MIAMI — LeBron James
couldn't wake up Sunday. He
was sluggish when his alarm
went of at 8 a.m. and still in
a funk when the Miami Heat
and New York Knicks tipped
of fve hours later.
He eventually got into form,
just in time to perhaps doom
the Knicks' playof chances.
James scored 38 points and
the Heat survived an NBA-re-
cord 22 3-point attempts
from New York's J.R. Smith
in a 102-91 victory that kept
Miami atop the Eastern Con-
ference standings.
"You do your job and you
live with the results," James
said. "We lived with the result
of J.R. making some of those
Chris Bosh added 14 points
and Ray Allen had 12 for the
Heat (53-23), who are a full
game ahead of Indiana (53-
25) and two up in the loss
column in the East race. Te
Pacers lost at home to Atlanta
later Sunday night.
Smith was 11 for 28 from
the foor, 10 for 22 from be-
yond the arc and took 10
3-pointers in the fourth quar-
ter alone while Carmelo An-
thony didn't attempt a single
shot in the period.
Te single-game mark was
previously held by Damon
Stoudamire, who hoisted 21
3-pointers on April 15, 2005.
"It's not really been a goal of
mine," Smith said. "I saw the
open 3 and tried to take them.
I had to take advantage."
Smith fnished with 32 for
the Knicks. Anthony has
been bothered by a sore right
shoulder, but played 44 min-
"Melo is still hurting,"
Knicks coach Mike Wood-
son said. "I couldn't rest him
again tonight. Tat second
half, he was giving us what
he's got."
A bad day got worse for New
York when the Hawks-Pacers
game went fnal. Te Knicks
(33-45) are two games behind
the Hawks in the race for the
fnal playof spot, three in the
loss column. And New York
has only four games lef.
"Our fate is almost now in
Atlanta's hands," Anthony
said. "It's tough. ... My fate is
in somebody else's hands."
James had four turnovers
in the opening minutes and
New York — which had its
best opening two and a half
minutes ofensively in at least
a decade, according to STATS
LLC — held a 16-3 lead.
"Flummoxing," Heat coach
Erik Spoelstra said. "It was
bizarre. Our turnovers were,
no ofense to the Knicks, ab-
solutely unforced."
It was still 16-3 when Felton
was whistled for a second
early foul, and everything
changed. Te Knicks missed
six straight shots and the Heat
scored nine straight points.
James — who had one turn-
over in the fnal three and a
half quarters — settled down
and things started going Mi-
ami's way.
Miami got snippy with one
another in plenty of huddles
during the game, something
that Spoelstra seemed to par-
ticularly relish.
"Verbally spitting at each
other, I like it," Spoelstra said.
"Tat's what we need to get
ready for the second season."
Miami's lead was 15 with
just under nine minutes to
go before the Knicks made it
interesting. Iman Shumpert
missed a wide-open 3 with
3:30 lef that would have got-
ten New York within four.
James answered a layup at
the other end and afer Smith
made his ninth 3, Mario
Chalmers answered with one
of his own, making Miami's
lead 97-88.
So Smith made another,
giving the Knicks life. And
Miami again answered, this
time Bosh doing the long-
range honors to restore the
nine-point edge.
Miami played without
Dwyane Wade (hamstring),
Greg Oden (back) and Chris
Andersen (back, knee). Am-
ar’e Stoudemire scored 12 and
Tyson Chandler fnished with
10 points and 11 rebounds for
New York.
James had four turnovers
by the time Miami scored
six points. But he settled in
before the quarter was over,
outmuscling Tim Hardaway
Jr. for what became a 3-point
play. Hardaway tried to wrap
James up on a break, but the
four-time MVP kept going,
scored and then fexed a bi-
ceps muscle to the roaring
And afer that sizzling
14-point beginning, New
York needed more than 13
minutes to score its next 14
points. A 31-10 run helped
the Heat take as much as an
eight-point lead in the second
quarter, before the Knicks
went into halfime up 50-48.
Miami found some breath-
ing room by scoring the f-
nal seven points of the third.
James laid it in while getting
fouled with 4.1 seconds lef.
He gave Miami its biggest
lead to that point, making the
free throw that put the Heat
up 73-64 entering the fourth.
LeBron scores 38 points,
Heat tops Knicks 102-91
New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith (8) goes up for a shot against Miami

Jayhawks fall to Sooners
in three-game series
The five game winning streak
for Kansas softball (28-13)
came to a halt this weekend
when Oklahoma (28-8) swept
the three-game series in Nor-
man, Okla.
Despite efforts from soph-
omore pitcher Kelsey Kessler,
senior outfielder Alex Jones and
senior infielder Ashley Newman,
the losses were hard to overcome
when the Jayhawks couldn’t get
a hit.
In the first game of the series
with the defending national
champions, Kansas connected
once with a hit from junior in-
fielder Maddie Stein. In the sec-
ond game of the series, Kansas
had five hits, the highest of the
series for the Jayhawks. In the
third game, Kansas had two hits,
both coming from Newman.
Next up for the Jayhawks is the
last non-conference game of the
season with the team traveling
to University of Missouri Kansas
City on Tuesday, April 8. First
pitch is scheduled for 5 p.m.

Senior infielder Ashley Newman goes to bat against the Oklahoma
Sooners. The Jayhawks lost all three games this weekend.
PRETORIA, South Africa —
More than a year afer he killed
his girlfriend, Oscar Pistorius
is expected to fnally answer
questions about why he shot
Reeva Steenkamp through a
bathroom door. His murder
trial resumes this week and his
defense lawyers will begin pre-
senting the evidence they hope
will save the Olympic athlete
from going to prison for 25
years to life.
Pistorius' account that he
killed Steenkamp by mistake
is going to "stand or fall" with
his testimony in court, a legal
expert says.
Charged with premeditated
murder for Steenkamp's death,
Pistorius and his defense team
say he will testify to counter
accusations that he intention-
ally killed Steenkamp by fring
four times through the door in
his bathroom before dawn on
Valentine's Day last year, hit-
ting her in the head, arm and
hip. Pistorius says he mistook
Steenkamp for a dangerous in-
truder hiding in a bathroom.
South Africa has no trial by
jury, meaning Judge Toko-
zile Masipa will pronounce
Pistorius guilty or not guilty of
murder, and Pistorius has the
chance to convince her that he
did not intentionally kill the
29-year-old model.
But Pistorius' testimony also
gives prosecutors the chance to
cross-examine the celebrated
double-amputee runner and
scrutinize every aspect of his
Facing a possible life sen-
tence, his questioning by chief
prosecutor Gerrie Nel could
be the biggest challenge yet
for the 27-year-old Pistorius, a
disabled athlete who fought for
years to win the right to com-
pete alongside able-bodied
runners and made history by
running at the 2012 Olympics.
Brian Webber, one of Pisto-
rius' lawyers, said they had no
choice but to put Pistorius on
the stand. Legal experts say it's
a risk Pistorius' defense has to
Pistorius ofen reacted emo-
tionally to details of Steen-
kamp's death in the four weeks
of prosecution-led testimony
at his trial. He retched loudly
and vomited in court when a
pathologist described Steen-
kamp's grisly injuries and cried
and frequently covered his ears
while sitting in the dock in an
apparent attempt to block out
graphic testimony.
During his own testimony, he
will have to describe in depth
his fatal shooting of Steen-
“A reasonable man most
probably would not have fred
four shots through the door,”
Marius du Toit, a criminal de-
fense lawyer and former state
prosecutor in South Africa
who is observing, said. “His
actions were defnitely not rea-
sonable and I think that’s his
biggest problem.”
Prosecutors charge that Pis-
torius murdered Steenkamp
afer a fght and he must dispel
their accusations that he in-
tentionally shot her as she hid
behind the locked door, legal
experts say.
Even if he is acquitted of
murder, Pistorius faces a neg-
ligent killing conviction.

Sale shuts down Royals as White Sox win 5-1
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chris
Sale knew he had to pitch
his best Sunday with James
Shields starting for the Kansas
City Royals.
"Indubitably, yes," Sale said.
"You know what you're getting
with a starter like James. You
have to bear down and do it."
Sale gave up four singles in
eight scoreless innings as the
Chicago White Sox defeated
the Royals 5-1 in a pitching
duel between top starters.
Alexei Ramirez and Tyler
Flowers each drove in a pair of
runs as the White Sox won the
series fnale afer dropping the
frst two games.
Sale (2-0) struck out six and
walked one. In his previous
four starts against the Royals,
the White Sox had backed him
with one run, enough to beat
James Shields 1-0 in the 2012
"Tere was an energy to Chris
coming of the mound," White
Sox manager Robin Ventu-
ra said. "Big pitchers do that
when you face up against a guy
like Shields. He knows we've
lost three in a row and he's
going up against Shields and
he wanted to go out and shut
them down."
Shields (0-1) took the loss in
this one, too, giving up a run
on fve hits, striking out six,
walking none and hitting two
batters in seven innings.
"What we saw out there to-
day was two No. 1 starters that
were at the top of their game,"
Royals manager Ned Yost
said. "Both of them had their
A-game on the mound. Tat's
as good of stuf as I've seen
James Shields have. He had ev-
erything working, his fastball
at 94-95, a great cutter, a great
change, a great curveball.
"Sale was right there with
him. He has everything going.
Both starters just pitched a
great game, both of them."
Ramirez's drove in the game's
frst run in the seventh when
Royals shortstop Alcides Esco-
bar knocked down his ground-
er but had no play for Conor
Gillaspie at home.
Sale allowed a runner past
second only in the third in-
ning, when Lorenzo Cain and
Omar Infante singled and
Ramirez committed a throw-
ing error. Sale wiggled out of
trouble by retiring Danny Va-
lencia on a pop up. Cain had
two of the hits of Sale.
Te White Sox scored four
runs in the ninth of Roy-
als lef-handed relievers Tim
Collins and Francisley Bueno.
Te inning included a Flow-
ers' two-run single and an RBI
double by Ramirez.

Sporting settles for draw in MLS Cup rematch
For an early season game,
Sporting Kansas City’s match
against Real Salt Lake was salt-
ier than the famous lake from
which the opposition resides
in Saturday night’s scoreless
Tis was the teams’ frst
meeting since last season’s
MLS Cup, which took the full
90 minutes of regulation, 30
minutes of overtime and ten
rounds of penalty kicks to de-
cide a winner. Te match es-
tablished that Kansas City was
no longer the Wizards of old,
playing unspectacular soc-
cer in front of sparse crowds
at the cavernous Arrowhead
Stadium. Today, Sporting is an
MLS power with some of the
league’s most passionate sup-

ty toward each other had dis-
sipated in the 119 days since
Sporting’s cup win, you’d be
Minutes afer defeating Colo-
rado Rapids last week, striker
Dom Dwyer initiated the week
long verbal sniping, stating he
hates Salt Lake. Days later, Salt
Lake’s Nat Borchers said, “We
don’t like [Sporting] as much
as they don’t like us. We’re just
ready to batter each other and
go afer each other this Satur-
Tat they did, from the open-
ing kick to the fnal whistle.
Sporting’s Chance Myers was
sent crashing into an adver-
tisement board at full speed
by an opposing defender afer
streaking down the sideline,
causing the board to concave.
Te early warnings from the
referee came to an end when
Salt Lake’s Chris Schuler stuck
out his foot and tripped Sal
Zizzo on a counter-attack to
earn a yellow card in the 39th
minute, one of the four doled
out during the match. A hand-
ful of players from both sides
crowded the referee afer he
showed the card. Te crowding
violated a new anti-mass con-
frontation rule, leaving both
teams and the involved players
subject to fnes of $5,000 and
$1,000, respectively.
Te match began getting
chippy toward the end as
Borchers earned a delayed
yellow for a late tackle that
sent Claudio Bieler fying in
an attempt to avoid the chal-
lenge. Te referee continued
play, deciding to give the ad-
vantage to Sporting despite
six defenders covering three
Sporting players ahead of the
ball. Te advantage ended afer
Real Salt Lake defender Rich
Balchan dispossessed Graham

for a Real goal kick.

could’ve doubled had he been
Te cherry on top came in
the 83rd minute as Sporting’s
Oriol Rosell was shown a
straight red card afer a dan-
gerous, studs-up tackle.
Rosell’s red efectively ended
Sporting’s chance to take three
Kansas City bombarded the
goal of goalkeeper Jef At-
tinella for a majority of the
90 minutes, yet the back-up
keeper answered each assault.
He made it clear early in the
game that Sporting wouldn’t
have it easy just because three
time all-star and U.S. National
Team regular goalkeeper Nick
Rimando was resting.
Dwyer got behind the defense
in the 11th minute, charging
down the feld unmarked for
a one-on-one, which Attinella
stoned as he lay extended on
the ground.
It was the frst save of an in-
coming artillery shelling of
Sporting screamers.
Attinella answered Seth Si-
novic’s 27th minute blast from
outside the box by refexively
tipping it over the net. Ben-
ny Feilhaber tattooed a vol-
ley from the perimeter of the
box in the 34th minute afer
a failed clearance from a Real
defender, yet Attinella again
extended himself to prevent
the goal.
“When I hit it, I thought it
was going in, but he got to the
spot and made a good save,”
Feilhaber said.
Te assault continued in the
second half as Zusi created
two chances in the 51st and
52nd minute. Free on the lef
side, he booted one goal that
beat Attinella, but barely sailed
past the post. Next, he set up
Dwyer with a crossing pass at
the penalty spot, but Dwyer’s
sliding ofering was blocked.
Sporting’s best chance came
in the 63rd minute when it
beat Attinella for the second
time, but again couldn’t beat
the net. Dwyer, dashing down
the side of the penalty box,
pulled Attinella of his line and
rounded him then kicked it
past his reach toward the net.
But Dwyer was unable to angle
it from the side and into the
net as it bounced of the post.
Zizzo was in position at the
penalty spot and one-timed
it toward the keeper-less net,
but the shot was blocked at the
goal line by Borchers.
Te Kansas City ofensive
slowed down as Real began
improving its possession in
the second half. It came to a
screeching halt when Rosell
earned a straight red for a dan-
gerous tackle on Real’s Devon
Sandoval late in the second
half. Sandoval avoided con-
tact, yet the referee dismissed
Rosell for going in with his
studs up. He faces a one game
suspension for the straight red
per MLS rules.
“I think he wasn’t in a good
position to see it and just saw
the guy go to the ground,”
Rosell said. “I don’t know. I
was thinking it absolutely it
wasn’t a red card.”
Sporting was disappointed
with the result afer dominat-
ing most of the game. Sport-
ing attempted 20 shots with
nine on target, compared to
Salt Lake’s fve shots with one
on target, and won possession
at the tune of 60 percent to 40
“We did everything right to-
day except the hardest part of
the game, which is to score,”
Feilhaber said.
Sporting (2-1-2) fell to third
in the Eastern conference with
the draw. Tey are now on a
bye-week and resume play at
home against Montreal Impact
on April 19.

Sporting Kansas City forward Dom Dwyer (14) misses a kick while covered by Real Salt Lake defender Nat Borch-
ers, top, during the first half of an MLS soccer match in Kansas City, Kan., Saturday.
npredictability can be the best
form of excitement when it
comes to sports. Te NCAA
Tournament is always full of upsets
and surprises. But 2014 is unlike any
other year in college basketball.
Notable early upsets in this year’s
tournament feature No. 14 Mercer
over No. 3 Duke, No. 11 Dayton over
No. 6 Ohio State and No. 10 Stanford
over No. 2 Kansas.
But that was just the beginning of
the stunners in this tournament. Fast
forward to the Final Four.
No. 1 Florida and No. 2 Wisconsin
were the favorites from a seeding
standpoint to win during Saturday’s
Final Four. But because of the surge
from No. 7 Connecticut and No. 8
Kentucky, basketball fanatics were
unsure who would survive and make
it to tonight.
Much like the early part of March
Madness, the upsets carried over into
early April as Connecticut and Ken-
tucky came out victorious.
Due to the high uncertainty of every-
thing leading up to tonight, national
pundits have no confdence in their
predictions for tonight’s outcome
between the Huskies and the Wildcats.
Te oddsmakers in Vegas will likely
change the betting line several times
before tonight’s opening tip-of.
Kentucky is the third team to fght
its way to the National Championship
game as a No. 8 seed and Connecticut
has hit the record books as
the frst No. 7 team to reach
the fnals.
Sports fans love to see
some of the top teams
square of and battle for
all the marbles. But this
year, college basketball’s
championship game will
highlight two teams who
were projected to exit the
tournament early by many.
Te ambiguity of the out-
come for this game is what makes
it exciting and unique from other
championship matches.
Fans who follow college basketball
religiously will overanalyze and over-
think this matchup.
Don’t worry about your brackets.
Tey’re probably already busted. Don’t
get caught up in the betting lines over
which team is getting the most love
from national experts.
Instead, fans
should enjoy this
rare occasion of
a No. 7 seed and
No. 8 seed fghting
for a championship
when everyone least
expected it. Upsets are
common, but not to
the degree of this year’s
set of upsets. Tis type of
matchup in a champion-
ship may not happen again
for a very long time.
Wherever you will be or whomever
you watch it with, enjoy tonight’s
unpredictable championship.

Nationals avoid sweep
with 2-1 win over Braves
WASHINGTON — Ian Desmond
led off the seventh inning with a
home run — the only run of the
game scored on a hit — and the
Washington Nationals and their
makeshift lineup avoided a sweep
Sunday with a 2-1 win over the At-
lanta Braves.
Desmond ripped a fastball from
Alex Wood (1-1) well into the left
field bleachers, the Nationals' first
hit since the first inning. But it was
enough to win on a day when four
Washington pitchers combined to
allow eight hits.
Taylor Jordan allowed one run
over 6 2-3 innings, working out of
several jams along the way, and
Jerry Blevins (1-0) retired two bat-
ters in the seventh to get the win.
Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth
for his first save.
The Nationals finished with four
hits — three from their first three
batters of the game and Des-
mond's homer.
Wood gave up two runs and four
hits over seven innings for the
The Nationals fielded a lineup
one could have hardly expected
for the first week of the season.
Without Ryan Zimmerman (shoul-
der trouble), Bryce Harper (batting
slump), Scott Hairston (placed on
the disabled list) and Denard Span
(day off vs. a lefty), rookie manager
Matt Williams had Kevin Frandsen
playing outfield in a regular season
game for the first time since 2010.
The Nationals manufactured their
first-inning run after Rendon led
off with a bunt single and Frand-
sen followed with a single to left.
When Jayson Werth hit a grounder
up the middle, second baseman
Dan Uggla bounced the throw to
first — it wouldn't have been in
time, anyway — but it rolled far
enough from first baseman Free-
man for Rendon to score.
The Nationals might have had a
bigger inning, but Desmond didn't
quite beat out a slow roller to third
— a ruling upheld by instant re-
Jordan pitched out of a bas-
es-loaded, one-out jam in the
fourth, but the Braves tied it in the
sixth when Uggla's flyout to deep
left-center scored Freeman.
Jordan was gone after allowing a
leadoff single and a sacrifice bunt
to start the seventh. Blevins came
on and struck out Jason Heyward in
a lefty-lefty matchup and got B.J.
Upton to line out to shortstop.
Soriano struck out Heyward with
two on in the ninth to finish it.

Manning goes
to Wake Forest
here will be a day when
Bill Self is no longer
the head coach at the
University of Kansas.
If this is news to you, please
take a moment to gather
We just had to get that out
of the way because this is not a
Bill Self story.
No, this is a story about
what happens to Kansas afer
Self. Tis is a story about
continuing a tradition of
basketball excellence long afer
Self ’s time here is over. Tis
is a story about the Jayhawks’
ninth head coach.
More importantly, this is a
story about Danny Manning,
a Kansas legend whose move
out east has brought him
closer to home than ever.
Last Friday, Manning
accepted the head coaching
position at Wake Forest
University afer two years at
the helm of the Tulsa Golden
In those two years, Manning
compiled a 38-29 record, won
a Conference USA Champi-
onship — Tulsa’s frst in more
than a decade — appeared in
the NCAA Tournament and
was named C-USA Coach of
the Year.
And all of that earned him
the opportunity to coach
against the likes of Roy Wil-
liams, Mike Krzyzewski, Jim
Boeheim, Buzz Williams, Ja-
mie Dixon and Tony Bennett.
For Wake Forest, it’s a pretty
signifcant bet on a guy with
just a couple years of head
coaching experience. For Kan-
sas, it was a monumental leap.
Manning’s name has always
been quietly mentioned
among Jayhawk fans as a
potential successor to Self.
Despite the fact that he’s one of
the most storied players to suit
up for Kansas, Manning was
instrumental in recruiting and
developing guys like Tomas
Robinson, Jef Withey, Cole
Aldrich, the Morris twins and
Wayne Simien during his time
as an assistant under Self.
“He’s been around basketball
his whole life, played for so
many coaches, been able to
steal from everybody and has
developed a vast knowledge
that will certainly play a huge
role in his success as a head
coach,” Self told the media in
2012 when Manning lef for
So now Manning gets his
chance to show of that knowl-
edge on one of — if not the
biggest — stage in college bas-
ketball. Te one-time North
Carolina native will have his
opportunity to march into
Cameron Indoor Stadium and
the Dean Dome and prove
that not only was he one of the
game’s top players, he’s one of
the top coaches, too.
Tat’s not to say that he’ll
succeed though. Tere are
numerous reasons why
Manning could fail. In the past
10 years the Demon Deacons
have placed higher than ffh
in the ACC just twice (2005,
2009) and given the current
state of the conference, there’s
no guarantee they’ll be there
again anytime soon.
But if Manning does
transform Wake Forest, if he
does prove himself capable of
winning on college basketball’s
highest platform and starts
knocking of the blue bloods,
then there’ll likely be a North
Carolina coach leaving for his
home in Kansas.
And how perfect would that

PAGE 10 Jayhawks fall to Sooners over weekend
Jayhawks go 2-1 in series against Wildcats
It all came down to Sunday.
Te series was tied at one
game apiece. Kansas and its
in-state rival Kansas State had
split the frst two games of
their weekend series in Man-
hattan but the Jayhawks end-
ed the series with a win.
“We have an expression in
our clubhouse,” coach Ritch
Price said. “It’s all about Sun-
And for the Jayhawks this
season, Sundays have been
all about senior pitcher Frank
Duncan. Duncan has been the
stopper for Kansas this sea-
son. Te Jayhawks dropped
the frst two games of their
series against Oklahoma last
Duncan toed the rubber for
the fnale of that game and
threw eight innings, allowing
only one earned run. Sun-
day, Duncan fnished what he
started, throwing a complete
game, allowing one earned
run on seven hits.
“We have three guys on our
staf that can go out there and
get the job done on Sundays,”
Duncan said. “I got slotted for
Sundays this year and I’m tak-
ing advantage of it. [Robert]
Kahana, Wes [Benjamin] and
myself are all capable of doing
the job.”
Te Jayhawks ofense was
led by senior outfelder Tuck-
er Tarp. Tarp crushed a
homerun to lef feld on the
frst pitch of his at bat in the
second inning of Sunday’s
game. Tarp went 2-3 and
helped lead Kansas to a 2-1
Junior shortstop Justin Prot-
acio stayed hot at the top of
the order as he went 3-4 in
the series fnale. His on-base
streak was snapped on Friday
in the Jayhawks’ 10-0 loss to
the Wildcats.
Senior Jordan Piché got his
frst start of the season on
Friday night, flling in for the
injured Benjamin. Piché had
recently been relieved of his
closer role because of ongoing

through Friday night, giving
up seven earned runs in fve
innings of work. Te senior

eight hits and walked three, as
“It’s a mental thing,” Price
said. “I switched up his role to
give him a bit of a mental rest
from the closer role.”
Wildcats sophomore pitcher
Levi MaVorhis dominated on
Friday and threw a complete
game, three-hit shutout, strik-
ing out four and walking only
two. Te Wildcats got of to
a strong start Friday, putting
fve runs up on the Jayhawks
in the frst.
Junior pitcher Kahana lead
Kansas to a 6-3 win over
K-State in the second game
on Saturday. Kahana went six
strong innings, allowing three
runs on three hits. Freshman
Stephen Villines came on with
two out in the eighth inning
to close out the game. Villines
succeeded; allowing the Wild-
cats only two hits to earn his
third save of the season.
Kansas got on the board ear-
ly this time, scoring two runs
on four straight hits in the
fourth. Senior catcher Ka’iana
Eldredge, junior lef felder

Over the weekend the Jay-
hawks saw multiple perfor-
mances that stacked up with
some of the best in the school’s
track and feld history.
One of these historic out-
ings came from senior Natalie
Becker, who traveled with the
rest of the Jayhawk distance
runners to Palo Alto, Calif.,
for the Stanford Invitation-
al. Becker completed the
5,000 meter race in 16:20.80,
which not only earned her a
19th place fnish in a stacked
feld of competition, but it
etched her name into the
Kansas record books as the
fastest 5,000-meter runner in
school history. Becker’s re-
cord-breaking performance
also moved her into the top 25
in the NCAA rankings.
Meanwhile in Baton Rouge,
La., the rest of the Jayhawk
track and feld team was
competing at the Battle on
the Bayou, also producing
performances that stacked
up with the best in school
history. Sophomore Rhavean
King turned in one of these
performances in the 800 me-
ters. Te Memphis, Tenn., na-
tive crossed the fnish line in
2:08.82, giving her the victory
and placing her as the fourth
fastest female in the event in
school history.
Te female 4x100 meter
relay team of Tianna Valen-
tine, Sydney Conley, Zainab
Sanni and Diamond Dixon
also turned in a time to re-
member, fnishing the race in
44.67. Te time gave the quar-
tet a third place fnish in the
event and also made them the
sixth-fastest in school history.
Tere were a total of 15 per-
formances in Louisiana that
cracked the NCAA West Re-
gion top 25, which ultimately
gave the Jayhawk women’s
team a second place team
fnish, and the men a third
place team fnish. According

Kansas succeeds nationwide, breaks records
