Missouri are laid out in their general policy manuals, but separate policy
documents for different departments of those universities may also list
more rights.
Below is a checklist of basic student rights presented in the Ku student
code of rights and responsibilities compared to written policies at
comparable universities. some rights not checked may be protected by

Laverty
You have the right to challenge
your grade, but you can’t drink
alcohol on University grounds.
A document made by the stu-
dents, for the students specifically
outlines what you can and can’t do
on campus.
That document is called the
KU Code of Student Rights and
Responsibilities, and it makes sure
your civil liberties are protected
on campus.
“It makes it clear what rights
you’re able to have on campus,”
said Michael Laverty, chairman of
the Student Rights Committee. “It
makes rights a little more about
the students. It puts students as
priority and makes them involved
with the process.”
Laverty, a senior in political sci-
ence from Manassas, Va., said the
Code is a safeguard for students,
who may feel their civil liber-
ties were infringed upon by the
University or other entities. Now
that Student Senate is reconven-
ing, students can play an active
role in the political process by
joining the committee.
“The Code represents the very
best of the University,” said Jane
Tuttle, assistant vice provost of
Student Success. “It’s based on the
principles of fairness, honor and
integrity. It determines a forum
for violations. The University
should be purposefully open, just,
disciplined and caring. The Code
brings a sense of community.”
COMPARING OTHER UNIVERSI-
TIES
The Code was drafted by the
Student Senate and approved
by the Chancellor in 1970. This
makes the University one of the
first to chart out students’ rights.
Even now, many universities
don’t have a separate document
like the Code to protect students.
As a result, the Code grants stu-
dents more explicit protection
than other universities.
“There isn’t an explicit docu-
ment that says that there are spe-
cific rights for students,” said Bill
Harlan, acting coordinator of
Student Activities at Kansas State
University. “There’s a collection
of policies that apply specifically
to students. But they’re not really
centralized.”
Harlan said the Office of
Student Life is the main authority
for students’ rights. Kansas State’s
Policies and Procedures Manual
lists rights of the whole communi-
ty, and that can
be extended to
students, too.
T h e
University of
Missouri has a
campus - wi de
manual called
the “M-book,”
that lists the
basic student rights and respon-
sibilities. Compared to the Code,
the M-book grants most of the
same rights. But unlike Kansas, it
doesn’t explicitly grant protection
of classroom speech along with
other rights.
The University of Oklahoma
also has a code of student rights
and responsibilities, which was
enacted in 2011. Like Missouri,
Oklahoma doesn’t protect class-
room speech, but it does protect
students from being charged twice
for a crime, something the KU
Code doesn’t do.
The University of Texas uses
its extensive General Information
Catalog to list out rights of the
whole community. It focuses on
students’ rights and organizes
them into an appendix of the cata-
log. Unlike the other four univer-
sities, Texas doesn’t say anything
about the freedoms of student
media in its catalog.
Kansas is the only university in
the Big 12 conference that grants
students’ protection from aca-
demic punishment for off-campus
crime, a point debated over the
past couple of years. Also, com-
pared to many of these universi-
ties, Kansas allows students more
say in their on-campus rights.
RIGHTS COMMITTEE
The Student Rights Committee
is one of four standing commit-
tees of the Student Senate, and any
interested student is welcome to
join and comment on legislation.
According to the Senate’s rules
and regulations, the Committee
reviews the Code every two years.
Last year, the committee approved
changes that allows University
housing violations to be evalu-
ated on an individual basis, and
expands students’ free speech
rights to the Internet.
“The Code shows how power-
ful we actually are,” Laverty said
about the Committee. “Right now,
we’re considering a resolution
concerning guns on campus.”
The Committee didn’t see much
legislation during the fall semester,
about 20 bills, but Laverty has
a couple of main goals as chair-
man for the spring. One goal is to
task the Committee with a judicial
committee.
“The other standing committees
have broad tasks,” Laverty said. “So
bringing more judicial concerns to
Rights would make sure it isn’t
being underused. It would make
rights more broader and increase
its credibility more.”
Laverty also wants to help clean
up the Senate’s rules and regula-
tions and get students to show
more interest in Senate and com-
mittee meetings.
“I’d love to get people on the
committee more involved,”
Laverty said. “It’s just a hard task
sometimes, hunting for legislation.
But hopefully we get some good
issues.”

Infograph by Trey Conrad
Thursday, January 31, 2013
Members of the University’s
Reserve Officers’ Training Corps
are reconsidering their career paths
as the U.S. Department of Defense
opens options for women.
Brittany Simek, a freshman from
Leavenworth and one of 23 female
cadets in ROTC, had previously
been interested in joining the mili-
tary police. Now that more posi-
tions in the Army will be available
for her, she is considering joining
the infantry.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta
announced last week that women
will be allowed to serve in front-
line infantry positions by Jan. 2016.
A 1994 Pentagon policy previously
barred women from being assigned
for duty below the brigade level.
In short, Panetta’s announcement
will allow women in the military
to enter the infantry and elite com-
mando units. Military services may
seek exceptions to the policy if they
believe any positions must remain
male-only.
“It’s definitely an eye-opener,”
Simek said. “I think it’s life-chang-
ing.”
Opening these military positions
to women will grant them more
career opportunities. Without
infantry or commando experience,
women have had difficulty earning
promotions to high military rank
and being trained for certain mili-
tary situations.
“Many women have fought in
combat but they don’t necessarily
receive the same training as men,”
said freshman cadet Brittany Mesa.
“Even though they end up in the
same situation, they aren’t given
the same training. That’s just as
much of a disadvantage and it just
doesn’t seem right.”
The positions being opened
to women include
more than just the
soldiers who are
sent out on the front
line. Sophomores
Susan Mohrbacher
and Kendall Gregg,
pre-nursing and pre-
medicine majors
respectively, are
more likely to pursue
medicine than combat.
Each infantry battalion includes
a Medical Corps officer who runs
a troop aid station. Previously,
only male officers could hold this
position—making life and death
decisions for wounded soldiers
immediately after they are injured.
With Defense Secretary Panetta’s
release, women can enter down
this career path.
Despite the initial, temporary
intimidation of entering a field of
study that’s typically seen as a man’s
profession, Cadet Mohrbacher has
found respect and camaraderie
between her fellow cadets. The
male cadets treat her as if they were
her big brothers, she said. “It’s not
as big of a deal as you would think,”
Mohrbacher said. “As long as you
get your job done and you do it
well and you work well with other
people, I feel like people usually
respect you and will be respectful.”
That mutual respect is no sur-
prise. The military, said Master
Sergeant Chad
Brown, is a
system where
people must
earn their
positions. He
brings that
view to ROTC
at KU, where
20 percent of
the approxi-
mately 125 students enrolled are
female. On a national level, 14 per-
cent of soldiers serving on active
duty in the U.S. Army are female.
“We don’t look for types of peo-
ple—gender, training, color of race
or anything—what we look for is
that merit to be in our program,”
Brown said.
Brown, now the University’s
Senior Military Instructor, has
served in the army as first sergeant
of an infantry company, the branch
currently closed to female soldiers.
On his last deployment to Iraq, he
was moved to a brigade special
troops company that was 30 per-
cent female.
“Any prenotions that I had prior
to that were dispelled in the time
that I was in that company,” Brown
said. “The army is truly a merit-
based system. We award and pro-
mote people that work hard. It
really is a system where it’s not
who you are, it’s what you do that
matters.”
All members of the U.S. Army
must pass a basic physical fitness
test twice per year: a two-mile run,
two minutes of sit-ups and two
minutes of push-ups. Standards for
males require more push-ups and
a faster running time than those
for females.
Workout standards for women
at the University’s ROTC, how-
ever, are on par with men. Regular
physical training lasts from 6-7
a.m. three days a week and focuses
on exercises included in the fit-
ness test as well as platoon com-
petitions requiring teamwork. An
optional Ranger detachment last
from 5:30-7 a.m. five to six days a
week and includes weight training
and sprints.
“Coming into the military, there
is an aspect of being a female where
you have to prove yourself, espe-
cially physically-wise,” Gregg said.
“But you do form that team bond
to where—after they see how hard
you work and how much you want
it and how much a part of the
essential team you are just as they
are—it doesn’t become a problem.”
Cadet Simek believes that
Panetta’s announcement will not
only open more career opportuni-
ties to women, but eliminate the
barrier between genders to help
soldiers work as a one unit.
“It’s really going to bring us
together,” Simek said. “And I think
it’s going to make a lot of females
be interested in the Army or be
interested in the service.”
Although the ban is lifted, women
will not immediately be seen in the
infantry until the training system is
revised and running. Women soon
to enter their military careers like
the cadets at the University, said
Master Sergeant Brown, will have
their career options greatly broad-
ened by these nationwide decisions
from the Department of Defense.
“Not to sound romantic—and
I guess if you stay in the Army as
long as I do, you kind of feel that
way about national pride and stuff
like that—but these students are
unbelievable,” Brown said. “I can
sit you down with people who it’s
really going to affect. And you can
look in their eyes and say, ‘Wow,
that’s a fellow Jayhawk that’s on the
cutting edge of America right now
in the news and potentially could
be on our honor wall as a general
in 30 years.’”

student senate votes
to wait on renovations
the Student Senate Finance com-
mittee voted to postpone a bill to fund
renovation of the Student Involvement
and Leadership
center.
David Mucci,
director of the KU
Memorial Unions,
presented the bill
and said they are
looking to create
more access for the 560 regular stu-
dent groups on campus, increase en-
gagement and offer more storage for
the SILc.
the bill asked for a sum of $60,000
from the Student Senate reserve Ac-
count. KU Memorial Unions has agreed
to match Student Senate’s distribution
for the project if approved. Mucci said
the project would take an estimated
$120,000 all together.
Mucci presented three different
design options from three different
companies. Josh Dean, chair of the Fi-
nance committee, wanted to postpone
the bill for the next committee meeting
on Feb. 13.
“We should postpone this until we
fgure out exactly how it will be done,”
Dean said.
the Finance committee voted to
wait until KU Memorial Unions pres-
ents one fnal design or until Senate
appoints a committee that will choose
the design after the bill is passed for
funding.

student group opposes
campus concealed carry
In its frst regular meeting of the spring
semester the Student rights committee
approved a resolution in opposition to
concealed carry of frearms on campus
last night.
Senate’s Government relations Direc-
tor Zach George said that the resolution
was a collaborative effort involving other
universities in Kansas.
“We have spoken to administrators and
campus police,” George said. “And both
institutions are against concealed carry
on campus. this resolution passed by the
Senate would be sent to all legislators in
the state.” the resolution will be passed
to full Senate for a vote on Feb. 6.
the resolution is a response to a pro-
posed measure in the Kansas Legislature
that would open the doors to guns on
campus.
While passing the resolution, commit-
tee members suggested to George that
he inform any student groups that sup-
port concealed carry on campus about the
resolution.
Also passed at the meeting was a fund-
ing measure for the KU Natural Museum
student group, and development of a bill
to align non-discrimination language in
the code of Student rights and responsi-
bilities with University policy. the changes
include adding “gender identity” and “ge-
netic information” to the code.
Another bill that would have given the
committee oversight of a student judicial
review board was held due to a miscom-
munication between the committee and
the student executive staff.

Freebirds, a Tex-Mex restaurant, is
bringing a new face to Massachusetts
Street’s burrito scene.
When patrons headed to Mass
Street in the search for a taste of
Tex-Mex, their choices were some-
what limited. However, Freebirds is
looking to change that by bringing a
new, casual experience to the plate.
“Freebirds is not your typical
fast, casual restaurant,” said Caitlin
Noble, director of marketing.
“Our mentality is very easy-going.
Everything’s cool; there’s no uni-
forms. We’re all about having fun
and enjoying life to the fullest.”
“We’re all about freedom at
Freebirds,” said Bryce Katz, director
of operations, “freedom to choose,
more choices, better food, better
ingredients and better people.”
The freedom found at the restau-
rant, according to those who have
already had the opportunity to try
Freebirds, is abundant.
“Freebirds has more choices than
I’ve ever seen at a restaurant like
this,” said Andrew Gast, a freshman
from Lenexa said.
“One of the things that really sets
us apart at Freebirds is our variety,”
Noble said. “We have 35 trillion dif-
ferent combinations, so someone is
almost guaranteed that they’ll find
something that they’ll love.”
Guest services are another main
area of the restaurant that may help
set Freebirds apart from the rest.
“The service here is a lot more
personable,” said John Tobin, a
sophomore from Kansas City, Kan.
“They were also very well informed.
I didn’t know much about Freebirds
when I walked in, but they were
definitely able to help me out.”
With all the freedom that
Freebirds brings, the restaurant is
looking to become a Lawrence sta-
ple and bring some variety to Mass
Street.
“Freebirds gives you freedom to
be yourself,” Katz said. “We thought
it would do well here, and it has.
I think Lawrence was made for
Freebirds and vice versa.”
Freebirds’ grand opening is today
at 739 Massachusetts St., next to
Jefferson’s.

teve Martin, a preemi-
nent comic authority,
once famously remarked,
“Comedy is the art of making
people laugh without making
them puke.”
Martin clearly never anticipated
the existence of something like
“Movie 43,” a deliberately taste-
less anthology piece that has far
more interest in triggering the
gag reflex than tickling the funny
bone. The film features A-list tal-
ent (Kate Winslet, Hugh Jackman,
Emma Stone, Halle Berry, Chloë
Grace-Moretz and Richard Gere)
who engage in painfully self-aware
attempts at naughty sketch com-
edy. Movie 43 desperately wants
to convince you that what you’re
seeing is genuinely shocking and
outrageous, to the point where
even its most outlandish material
seems forced. For this desensitized
YouTube viewer, it feels pitiably
quaint. The average episode of
“Tosh.0” contains more artful
gross-out humor.
The 12 short films that make
up “Movie 43” are framed around
a marginally clever premise: an
out-of-work, mentally unstable
filmmaker (Dennis Quaid) takes
a Hollywood producer (Greg
Kinnear) hostage and begins
pitching him ideas at gunpoint,
with every pitch dissolving into
a new segment. Quaid, wearing
what appears to be Justin Bieber’s
hair and a club rat wardrobe that
would look unsettling on a man
half his age, clearly took inspira-
tion from his off-the-reservation
brother Randy to play this crazed
nincompoop. Kinnear, for his
part, manages to look about as
befuddled as the rest of us.
The shorts, some of them
helmed by name directors like
James Gunn (“Slither”) and Brett
Ratner (“Rush Hour”), are strict-
ly of the hit-or-miss variety. The
good ones are over too soon and
the worst seem to plod on for-
ever. My audience’s favorite sketch
was the one starring Kate Winslet
as a lovelorn businesswoman and
Hugh Jackman as her handsome
blind date whose scarf masks a
tragic case of scrotum-throat. No,
seriously. He has testicles on his
neck. I apologize if I ruined that
for you.
The most disturbing segment
has Naomi Watts and her real-life
husband Liev Schreiber playing
the parents of a hapless, home-
schooled teenager. In an effort to
give their son the complete high
school experience, the two alter-
nately abuse, seduce and ridicule
him, all ostensibly for the sake of
his own growth and development.
The most tedious vignette is a tie
between the lazily written “truth or
dare” session with Halle Berry and
Stephen Merchant at a Mexican
restaurant and the skit starring
Emma Stone and Kieran Culkin
(the highlight of “Scott Pilgrim
vs. The World”) as ex-lovers trad-
ing obscenity-laced nonsense at
a grocery store checkout counter,
unaware that a horde of late-night
shoppers has gathered to gawk
and glare at them. The worst bit of
them all has SNL star and KU bas-
ketball fan Jason Sudeikis playing
a horndog Batman who interrupts
Robin’s (Justin Long) speed-dat-
ing session with Lois Lane (Uma
Thurman, mercifully not reprising
her Poison Ivy role from “Batman
and Robin”) and Supergirl (Kristen
Bell). 10 minutes of bad puns and
stale vagina jokes ensue.
It’s no surprise that my favor-
ite (“favorite” being a relative
term here) story happens to cen-
ter on Anna Faris (“Observe and
Report”), a blithe comic presence
inexplicably condemned to forev-
er elevate bottom-rung dreck like
“Movie 43.” Her segment, involv-
ing a bizarre romantic gesture and
the consumption of untold quanti-
ties of bean burritos, ends with an
abrupt, scatological climax worthy
of vintage “South Park.”
Aside from that brief stirring
of competence, the rest of “Movie
43” plays like a communication
intercepted from some bizarro
parallel universe where comedy
was never properly introduced as
an art form and supposedly cul-
tured, intelligent movie stars shed
their integrity at the first sign of
an easy payday. There’s something
almost whimsical about the idea
that someone, somewhere actually
spent millions of dollars to get this
thing made.
So, is this the worst movie of
all time? No, but to paraphrase
Tommy Lee Jones in “No Country
for Old Men,” it’ll do until the
worst gets here.

W
hile romantic zom-
bie comedies are rare,
this sub-genre has in
fact been around for quite some
time. “Shaun of the Dead” comes
to mind as the prime example,
although Peter Jackson made the
first foray into this territory more
than 20 years ago with the bloodi-
est film ever made, “Dead Alive.”
However, “Warm Bodies” takes
a totally new approach by not only
telling the story from the per-
spective of a zombie, but placing
the romance between an undead
boy and a human girl. Before
you go and think “so, ‘Twilight’
with zombies?” let me clarify: the
story cleverly models itself after a
famous piece of literature, but it
sure as hell isn’t one about misog-
ynistic, sparkly vampires.
The opening sequence makes it
clear that “Warm Bodies” intends
to bring some lightness and
warmth to a genre that’s usually
full of darkness and despair. More
importantly, it wants to imbue the
walking dead with some heart.
Our protagonist (Nicholas
Hoult) wryly narrates this tale,
filling in the audience on his daily
routine. Though he remembers
his name started with an “R,” he
doesn’t know where he belonged
before. So, he wanders around an
airport and continues some habits
from his living days, like listening
to vinyl records and conversing
with his friend (Rob Corddry),
mostly through grunting.
While searching with a group
for food one day, they encounter
some scavenging humans. Among
those survivors is blonde beauty
Julie (Teresa Palmer, aka the hot-
ter, more likable Kristen Stewart),
whose boyfriend is eaten by R. He
becomes smitten with her at first
glance and manages to bring her
back to his airplane home, where
he shows Julie he won’t eat her. R
slowly becomes more human-like,
being able to talk in broken sen-
tences and show emotion, while
Julie develops a strange connec-
tion with him as well.
I never thought I’d call a per-
formance as a zombie impressive,
but Hoult manages to portray this
undead nice guy with an under-
stated depth that makes you actu-
ally sympathize and care about
him. Palmer’s sweetness and gor-
geous allure engages viewers too,
and John Malkovitch reliably sat-
isfies by angrily hamming it up as
her controlling father and leader
of the human resistance.
Much of the charm in this
movie comes from its subtle sil-
liness. Writer/director Jonathan
Levine perfectly balanced humor
and drama in “50/50,” while here
he is able to create a friendly, non-
gory,inventive crowd-pleaser out
of creatures we usually watch for
their bloody carnage.
So with “The Walking Dead”
returning next weekend, prepare
by taking in the delightful enter-
tainment zombies can occasion-
ally offer us before diving back
into their normal brutality.

If you’re like me, you’re going
to be spending the Super Bowl
drooling over Beyoncé and using
it as just another excuse to sup-
port wedge sneakers and the ath-
letic trend. What is this athletic
trend I speak of? It’s quite possibly
the most convenient movement
in fashion since the beginning of
time. Alexander Wang, DKNY and
Isabel Marant are all supporters of
the comfort meets chic theme. Try
pairing a classic graphic Adidas
trefoil tee with a pair of feminine
printed pants and heels and you’ve
found yourself a match made in
heaven.
The thought of a heel and a
sneaker combination scare you?
Both the halftime act, queen
Beyoncé, and Victoria’s Secret’s
front woman Miranda Kerr wear
them nonstop. The sneakers also
give you a hidden and subtle lift,
causing your legs to instantly look
slimmer and longer. What more
could you want in a shoe? They’re
comfortable, and make you look
skinnier. They suddenly sound
much more appealing, don’t they?
Super Bowl Sunday couldn’t be a
better time to try the trend. Rather
than throwing on a jersey and jeans
and matching 40-year-old drunken
beer bellies nationwide, incorpo-
rate your favorite team’s colors into
your outfit instead. Baseball hats
are huge on runways right now
too, thanks to Tracy Reese, Jen
Kao and Lacoste. The trick is to
always have a girly edge to go with
your sporty look. My favorite ways
to include femininity are pops of
pink, lipstick, or some faux fur.
Sporty can be glam when it’s done
the right way.
Color blocking is another great
way to support your team. Luckily
both the 49ers and the Ravens have
great colors to work with. Rich
hues are always fun to wear head
to toe, so whether it’s purple or red,
you’ll be looking royally stylish.
Whether you’ll be wear-
ing your preferred teams colors
or a Destiny’s Child concert tee
this coming Sunday, be sure to
wear it fashionably. Just because
you’re pretending to watch football
doesn’t mean you should let the
fashion slide. Think Sporty Spice
meets Posh Spice, and you’ll be the
real winner come Feb. 3.

moVIE ProduCTIons
emma stone and Kieran Culkin take dirty talk to agonizing extremes in the grossly uneven comedy “Movie 43.”
N
o need to fret Avengers
fans; Agent Phil
Coulson (aka I-watched-
Captain-America-while-he-slept)
lives. It was confirmed at the
New York Comic Con that Clark
Gregg would continue playing
Agent Phil Coulson in ABC’s
“S.H.I.E.L.D.” TV pilot.
The Strategic Homeland
Intervention, Enforcement and
Logistics Division (SHIELD),
run by my spirit animal Nick
Fury, works to protect the earth
from human and not-so human
enemies.
Gregg has played Coulson in
several movies, including “Thor,”
“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2” and
several Marvel films.
What makes this news even
sweeter is the show isn’t just a
compilation of flashbacks. No,
according to Collider.com, ABC
Entertainment President Paul
Lee announced the show will
occur after the events of “The
Avengers.”
Which means our boy Phil is
alive. Whether he’s brought back
as a resurrected human or an
incorporeal being (or maybe he
was never dead at all) this show
ensures plenty of Coulson love.
Hallelujah.
Spoiler alert, guys, Coulson
supposedly “died” when Loki
stabbed him with his stick of
doom. His death helped unite
the team of superheroes to fight
off hordes of aliens and a God
of Mischief. I never thought I
would cry in the middle of an
action-packed superhero movie,
but when Nick Fury held out the
blood soaked Captain American
trading cards Coulson had
wanted Steve Rogers to sign, well,
I won’t lie, there were tears. Lots
of them.
I fell in love with Coulson
in “Iron Man 2.” At one point,
he threatens to taze Tony Stark
and watch “Supernanny” if he
tried to leave the house. His dry
humor and professionalism in
the wake of treacherous gods and
egomaniac superheroes makes
him worthy of his own show. His
snazzy black suits aren’t too bad
either.
I’d hoped his death was a hoax
devised by Nick Fury to get the
team to work together. When
it was revealed that the trading
cards had been in Phil’s locker,
not in the pocket of the suit he
died in like Fury said, I knew
there was a chance to get our boy
back.
And I wasn’t the only one.
Twitter broke out the
#Coulsonlives hashtag, and blog-
gers dedicated entire Tumblrs to
the idea that Agent Phil Coulson
would return alive and well.
Everyone wanted the snarky
and Captain America obsessed
SHIELD agent to survive, and
our desire has finally been heard.
Filming for the pilot will begin
this month, and with Marvel’s
“The Avengers” Director Joss
Whedon as its producer and co-
writer, its bound to be a hit.
Whedon was also responsible
for the TV series “Buffy the
Vampire Slayer,” and to put it
simply, he is a talented writer. It
also ensures the TV series will
follow and mesh with all of the
other Marvel movies. Or at least,
provide add-on material.
I can’t wait for the pure awe-
someness this show is bound
to be. And if the producers can
manage to get Samuel L. Jackson
to cameo as Nick Fury, then I can
die in nerdy superhero peace.

T
he Lawrence music scene
boasts a plethora of musi-
cal talent. And because
of this, it’s not difficult to find
an affordable and engaging live
show around town every night of
the week.
Personally, I’m into live shows
that reach me on an intellectual
level in some capacity, and to
get there I feel it’s a wise move
to, for lack of a better term,
“study” some of the music you’ll
be listening to before the show.
Whether it’s the lyrics in a par-
ticular song that I connect with
or the entrancing guitar riffs in a
slower tune, the vibe from album
recording to live show is pretty
consistent as an everyday music
listener.
I’ll give you a perfect example
of what I’m talking about; I was
at Jazzhaus last Friday night to
see local group Pink Royal per-
form. Having only listened to
their album for only a few weeks
prior to the live show, I became
instantly drawn in by the riffs
on two tracks in particular, “So
Long (Farewell)” and “January.”
It’s these hidden treasures in
music that keep me coming back
for more. The ambience of the
Pink Royal can’t be overstated,
and their live show was a big
“thumbs up” from this guy.
My experience at Bassnectar
last fall at Burcham Park also
carries with it fond memories of
musical connection. Granted the
lasers and a very sophisticated
light show presented a formi-
dable stage for both Bassnectar
and electro-sensation group
Ghostland Observatory, the real
musical embrace came before-
hand when I was well aware of
what each group was bringing
musically to the table in some
facet. Although, quite frankly,
I don’t think I could adequately
describe some of Bassnectar’s
work that night; it was “master-
ful” if I had to sum it up in one
word.
Now this isn’t a suggestion to
strictly listen to a group before
attending a local live show. Far
from it, actually. My only point
is having listened to a few tracks
before heading to a show can
only enhance that experience. I
know lots of people that get by
with just attending live shows of
groups they’ve never heard, and
it works for them. But do you
miss out on other shows taking
place that same night that could
have been a better musical fit?
I feel that since I put in a
little time prior to Pink Royal’s
live performance, I should be
rewarded with an equally suf-
ficient live show in return.
Think about it: if I hear about
the show through a friend,
decide I’d rather do something
else that night and never get to
hear Pink Royal’s lead vocalist
David Guthrie and his “Dave
Matthews-like” vocals, that’s a
pretty big fail on my behalf.
In any event, I can hon-
estly say that roaming around
Lawrence a few times a week
without any kind of idea who’s
playing where will work. You’ll
meet lots of different kinds of
people and enjoy yourself thor-
oughly. But those that want to
take it a step further and find
out about the local bands they’re
going to listen to live will find
that they’re attending more
shows to their general musical
interest.

Prejudice still a problem in Kansas
I
was in the bathroom at
Watson Library last semester
when I looked over to find
racial profanities written on the
stall. I don’t remember what they
said. I see them so often cow-
ardly etched into the wall with
sharpie that I’ve started to tune
them out for the most part.
Similarly, I found anti-Semitic
remarks tagged on the wall in
the bathroom of Wescoe last
week. This is at the University of
Kansas, one of the most highly
regarded, culturally diverse insti-
tutions in the Midwest. Doesn’t
that seem a little bit pathetic?
Black History Month is
knocking on the door and I’m
reminded of the days spent in
school learning about the ter-
rible struggle that black citi-
zens had to face in order to be
treated equally. We learned about
Harriet Tubman’s 13 trips to lib-
erate Black Americans and Dred
Scott’s Supreme Court Lawsuit to
be considered a free citizen.
Every year, we listened to Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream
of living in a world where blacks
and whites would live together
peacefully. Lo and behold, we’re
on the very brink of that dream
being completely realized. In
fact, I have found that within the
millennial generation there is
very little racial animosity.
However, there are those who
would not share this dream.
There are those who to this
very day, in the year 2013, still
insist on perpetuating an absurd,
demoralizing, and disgusting
way of life in which they feel
somehow superior to someone
because they are different. These
hateful people have no place in
the 21st century.
I’m not an authority on the
subject and I’m certainly not
perfect, but racism just puts a
bad taste in my mouth—not just
racism, any kind of discrimina-
tion aimed at somebody for no
reason other than the fact that
they have different skin, beliefs,
or customs than you disturbs
me. I think this is because it
reminds me of the world’s deeply
unsettling history.
Black History Month repre-
sents something different for a
lot of people. For some it is to
pay respects to family members
who had to fight for freedom.
For me it’s a time to remember
the heroes who shifted the world
we live in for the better. This was
a radical movement carried out
to be treated with respect and it
changed the entire game.
The Civil Rights Movement
represents a time of great change
when tolerance became demand-
ed and anything else became
ignorant. It has led to a funda-
mental restructuring of our soci-
ety where now no race, gender,
sexual orientation, or religion
is lesser. To me, Black History
Month is for paying respects to
the people and movements that
led to us finally standing behind
the notion that all people are
created equal.
Today, the belief is simple: If
you prejudge somebody, you’re
ignorant. That’s not to say we’re
all about to hold hands and sing,
but at least now, everyone has
an equal opportunity to earn
respect or earn disrespect. There
are few faster ways to earn disre-
spect than by writing something
like “hail Hitler” on a bathroom
stall.
Racism and discrimination are
still American problems, mani-
fested today when a lot of people
discuss Mexican immigrants or
express a fear of Muslims. Even
if it’s not an immediate problem
for you, it’s a problem in our
proximity and its negative effects
resonate throughout our culture.
I do however think it’s safe to say
we’re headed the right direction.
If you’ve ever been discrimi-
nated against, for whatever rea-
son, then let me apologize. You
never deserved it. To the persons
who perpetuate discrimination:
it’s OK; keep your head down.
We don’t know who you are. But
I hope wherever you’re sitting,
that you dislike me. I hope you
find my words grating as nails on
a chalkboard. Because, the truth
is, you make me sick.
Here’s to the month of
February, where we celebrate
our cultural diversity and our
equality.

Jayhawks win a wild one in OT,
erased an 18-point deficit
As the clock dwindled down,
senior guard Angel Goodrich
dribbled at the top of the arc with
30 seconds left in the game.
To that point, the Jayhawks
erased a 18-point deficit with
8:56 remaining in the game to be
within three.
Goodrich got a screen and
fired up a shot and as the ball
spun through the air, Goodrich
said it looked like all her other
shots—which were bricks.
“No one was getting into
the right spots,” Goodrich said.
“Then we set the screen and I
said ‘let me just shoot this and get
a shot off.’”
But this shot wasn’t a brick.
The 3-pointer dropped to give
the Jayhawks a tie game with 16
seconds remaining.
“We were absolutely a train
wreck with no timeouts,” Kansas
coach Bonnie Henrickson said.
“CeCe was on the wrong side and
Angel just dribbled. I’m trying to
yell cause it got busted and we
had players in the wrong spots.
Often it’s not the play you run,
it’s about making a play and she
made a play.”
After being down 55-37, the
Jayhawks found themselves in
the improbable situation of a tie
ball game and after some tough
defense, sent the game into over-
time and eventually came up with
a 78-75 overtime victory against
No. 23 Iowa State. This is the
third straight meeting between
these teams in Lawrence that
went to overtime.
Goodrich finished the night
with a double-double going
10-of-18 for 24 points and 10
assists. Goodrich did most of her
damage in the second half and
overtime as she went 7-of-9 from
the field.
Along with Goodrich, the
spark to overturn the huge defi-
cit came from sophomore guard
Natalie Knight.
Knight started out the game
on fire, scoring 10 of the first
12 points for the Jayhawks. But
it was the second half that gave
the team even more of a surge.
Knight had some big steals and
buckets on her way to a 21 point
night, including 5-of-9 from
behind the arc.
Knight came up with a steal
and a layup to cut the deficit to
three with a 1:46 left in the game.
But Knight went down awkward-
ly and had to leave the game with
a leg injury.
Senior forward Carolyn Davis,
finished with 15 points and nine
rebounds, was battling with foul
trouble most of the second half
and overtime but managed to do
most of her work in the stretch
when the team went 10-of-13
since they were down 18. She
said it was her duty to make sure
the team still had faith that they
could come back from the huge
deficit.
“I tried to stay positive and I
didn’t want to let my teammates
see me down,” Davis said. “That’s
what I do; at every huddle, I
try to say something positive. I
didn’t believe for one second that
we were out of it. I knew we
were tougher than them at that
moment.”
Iowa State sophomore guard
Brynn Williamson, who led the
Cyclones with 19 points, said the
Jayhawks didn’t care they were
down by such a large margin.
“They knew they weren’t going
to go away,” Williamson said.
“Eighteen points weren’t going to
stop them.”
Though it is tough to believe a
team can come back from such a
hole, Davis said she had no doubt
that the team could come back.
“I couldn’t let my doubts be
sent to my teammates,” Davis
said. “I had to cover up my doubts
and no matter what I was think-
ing, I had to send out positive
things. That’s what you have to do
as a leader.”
The Cyclones shot 52.4 per-
cent from the field in the opening
half and held the Jayhawks to just
37.9 percent. But in that second
half, the numbers were switched.
The Cyclones managed to shoot
just 37.5 percent as the Jayhawks
shot 62.5 percent, including the
10-of-13 down the stretch and in
overtime.
Kansas sophomore forwards
Chelsea Gardner and Asia Boyd
had a minimal impact until
the final few minutes and into
overtime. The combined for 13
rebounds.
With the 18-point lead, the
Cyclones could have easily put
the game on cruise control. But
Cyclone coach Bill Fennelly said
the team isn’t good enough to put
it on cruise control, but it came
down to one simple thing: Kansas
made plays down the stretch.
“Disappointing last eight
minutes for our team,” Fennelly
said. “Give KU credit, they kept
playing hard and made some big
shots, and we didn’t.”

Victory in
overtime
Although Kansas isn’t winning
pretty, it’s still winning.
After defeating West Virginia
61-56 in Morgantown, W. Va.
Monday night, the Jayhawks sit
at 19-1 overall, and 7-0 in Big 12
play. Their record to date, after
Monday’s game on Jan. 28, is tied
with the 2009-2010 and 2010-2011
teams as the second best in the Bill
Self era, trailing only the 2007-
2008 national champions’ 20-0
start.
For coach
Bill Self, escap-
ing with a road
victory in con-
ference play is
more impor-
tant than how
a team gets that
victory.
“If you tell us before the season,
you could tell us last night, you
could tell us this afternoon, ‘Hey
you’re going to win by five in
Morgantown,’ we’d say ‘Well we’ll
take that and go to the house,’”
Self said.
While much has been made of
Kansas’ offensive struggles since
conference play began, its defense
has kept opposing offenses just as
frustrated.
Kansas leads the nation in field
goal percentage defense at 35 per-
cent, just above Texas’ 35.2 per-
cent. The Jayhawks have held five
of their seven conference oppo-
nents to 37 percent shooting or
worse, and held Baylor to a paltry
23.2 percent shooting night.
If it holds, the Jayhawks’ field
goal percentage defense would
be the best during Self ’s reign.
Currently, the 2005-2006 team
has the best field goal percentage
defense of his era with a 37.2 per-
cent field goal defense.
“We’re pretty sound defensive-
ly,” Self said. “I don’t know if we’re
great defensively but we’re pretty
sound.”
On the flip side, Kansas has
shot above 43.6 percent in five
of its conference games, with at
least 50 percent shooting in two
of those games. Besides their nar-
row victory at Texas Jan. 19, the
Jayhawks have outshot all of their
conference opponents by at least
eight percent. Only the Longhorns
managed to outshoot Kansas.
So with a defense so dominant,
why has Kansas won three of its
past four games by five points
or less and not scored 70 points
since Jan. 9?
Well for one, free throw shoot-
ing has been spotty. Kansas shot
only 18-34 from the charity stripe
against West Virginia.
“That’s bad,” senior guard Travis
Releford said. “Normally as a team
we don’t shoot that bad. We just
got to keep working on it, get in
the gym, get up some free throws.
That’s about it.”
The two previous games weren’t
much better for Kansas from the
free throw line. The Jayhawks
swished only 12 of its 19 free
throws against Oklahoma, and
shot 13-21 from the line at Kansas
State.
The other problem is turnovers.
The Jayhawks have turned the
ball over more than their oppo-
nents in five of the seven confer-
ence games, including 16 turn-
overs Monday night against West
Virginia’s nine turnovers. Kansas
has committed at least 13 turn-
overs in six conference games.
The Jayhawks’ three starting
guards had three turnovers apiece
against West Virginia. Starting
point guard Elijah Johnson is
averaging 3.9 turnovers per game
since conference play began and
his assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.52
is 203rd in the nation.
“Our guard play’s got to get bet-
ter,” Self said. “Teams that pressure
us and get after us, we’ve turned
it over here of late. I thought we
actually did some good things but
we made some bonehead plays.”

J
ayhawk fans. Brace yourselves.
this news may come as a shock
to you.
Ben McLemore is going to the
NBA next year.
No, McLemore’s Kansas career
isn’t going to have an M. Night Shy-
amalan twist ending. It’s going to be
predictable, like the denouement of
a Nicholas Sparks novel. Te two
star-crossed love interests are going
to end up together. And, barring an
injury, Ben McLemore is going to
be a top-fve pick come June.
Although his Kansas career
will end soon the pressure for Mc-
Lemore to perform for Bill Self ’s
program will continue as his NBA
career progresses. Kansas is look-
ing for a player to fll Paul Pierce’s
shoes as a young NBA star. Having
a former player who is currently
succeeding wildly in the NBA just
makes recruiting less arduous.
If McLemore properly flls those
shoes, then Self will fnd it easier to
recruit the next generation of Kan-
sas ball players.
In the last seven years, the tra-
ditional powers all have fresh faces
that their former college coaches
can utilize to sell the program to
current recruits. Duke has Kyrie
Irving while UCLA has Kevin Love
and Russell Westbrook. Kentucky
has a cavalcade of stars that John
Calipari seems to spawn using a
combination of magic beans and
hair gel. Big 12 teams such as Texas
and Oklahoma have Kevin Durant
and Blake Grifn respectively. Self
will be competing with all these
schools for recruits, and you can
be certain those coaches are name-
dropping their professional stars.
In those same seven years Kan-
sas has produced a multitude of
NBA players. Some are role players,
some are disappointments, some
are on winning teams, and some
are on losing teams. But none are
bona fde stars. Josh Selby has more
trouble getting of the bench than
Wayne Knight in Space Jam. Xavier
Henry couldn’t get playing time for
the New Orleans Hornets despite
Eric Gordon’s persistent injuries.
Both these players were top-ten
recruits, and were supposed to be
destined for NBA stardom.
If you think that Calipari won’t
bring up those names, when he and
a high profle recruit are enjoying
a dinner of lobster with a side of
hundred dollar bills (I’m only sort
of kidding), you are grievously mis-
taken.
In addition to Selby and Henry,
Cole Aldrich, Sherron Collins, and
Julian Wright, among others, have
also not panned out professionally.
Te Morris twins, Mario Chalmers,
and Brandon Rush are solid role
players, but haven’t yet achieved
their high NBA potential, although
they still have much time to im-
prove.
Granted, Self ’s coaching strat-
egy mainly involves developing
players through their junior and
senior years rather than bringing
in one-and-dones. He gets players
to buy into a system, preferring a
team approach rather than focus
on the individual. But every now
and then a coach needs to fnd a
star that can take over games when
the ofense is stagnant. McLemore’s
future in the NBA could go a long
way to helping, or hurting, Self in
that endeavor.

I
hit my brother in the head with a foam
baseball bat when we were kids.
We were just playing in our back-
yard, throwing a baseball around, and for
some odd reason, I decided to give him a
nice whack on the side of the noggin.
He cried. My mother scolded me and
wiped away my brothers’ tears.
I don’t remember why I did that.
It might have been an accident. It might
have been because I was dumb kid who
was jealous of my brother getting atten-
tion.
I’ve got hundreds of these stories from
my childhood of the constant combative
nature of two brothers competing against
each other.
Whether it was beating him at a Madden
video game or winning the badminton
tournament we made up to entertain our-
selves on a sunny summer afternoon, it
was always a competition between the two
of us.
Some people want to make Ray Lewis
the story of this Super Bowl weekend. Some
want it to be the revolution of the spread-
option offense and Colin Kaepernick.
For me, nothing means more than
watching two brothers coach against each
other in a Super Bowl.
Sure it’s over-hyped (just like everything
at the Super Bowl), but when Jack and
Jacqueline Harbaugh were raising their
kids, I’m sure they were hoping they would
be happy and healthy boys who enjoy life.
Instead, they both became professional
head football coaches.
In my limited experience around high-
level football coaches, I know one thing is
certain: They never stop working.
They live, breathe and sleep football the
entire time they are under contract with
their employers.
They don’t have much time for their
families or golf in the offseason when the
recruiting season is over.
They just love football.
My job as a student and sportswriter
doesn’t come close to the same stress and
pressure as a professional football coach,
but I live for my job.
For most of my time since I’ve been in
college, I’ve been working to become a
better writer.
By my own choice, I spend most of my
days doing homework, watching sporting
events or reading and writing stories.
Growing up I didn’t spend a lot of time
with my brother (especially when I was a
teenager), and I don’t spend a lot of time
with him now even though he’s only 30
miles away in Lenexa.
He’s asked many times to come up and
stay with me for a weekend, and yet most
of the time I say I’m too busy.
Even when I was at home, I didn’t talk to
him much. We still don’t talk that much.
The main reason?
I let my head get in the way. My anxiety
takes over my brain and my mind gets in
the way of enjoying college.
I’ve blamed a lot of it on my parents
because they have similar problems.
I’ve done everything to try to cope with
this problem: pills, acupuncture, talking
with therapists.
And the whole time while I’ve been wor-
rying about myself, my brother has carried
on without any of that stuff.
He wrestles. He exercises. He talks to
friends. He talks to his family. More than
anything, he works hard. He takes respon-
sibility for his homework and his body.
He grew up too fast and now, at 18, he’s
a smart kid who’s got a bright future with
very little thanks to me.
With all that said, that doesn’t mean
my brother and I haven’t had some good
times.
We’ve seen a lot of this country together.
We’ve hiked the Grand Canyon, seen the
inside of the White House and petted
Ernest Hemingway’s cats in Key West.
But one of our biggest connections is
football and cheering for the Green Bay
Packers.
Thanks to our father, we’ve been
cheeseheads since birth. And even though
we’ve grown up, we never stopped loving
the Pack.
When we were kids, we played one-on-
one football against each other in the back-
yard pretending to be Antonio Freeman
or Robert Brooks. We performed over-
the-top touchdown dances after we would
crash into the chain-link fence.
Neither one of us played organized foot-
ball, but we love the game.
Now during games, profanity-filled texts
are exchanged after the defense misses an
assignment, calls are exchanged when my
dad gets a little too amped about a sack by
Aaron Rodgers, and we laugh.
Football is one connection I have to my
brother, and it’s one I’ll have my entire
life.
So when I watch the football game on
Sunday, I’m going to enjoy the Super Bowl,
and I’m going to enjoy it with my brother.
Michael Rosenberg wrote a fantas-
tic piece for Sports Illustrated about the
Harbaugh brothers that was published on
Oct. 18, 2010. It was a well-written story
about the brothers’ shenanigans grow-
ing up and how these two brothers had
become great football coaches.
This excerpt summed up their relation-
ship very well:
“Jim’s superior athleticism sent him off
in one direction, and John went off in
another—and ever since, Jim has been
known as the brash athlete and John the
reserved thinker.
“But both say repeatedly, We’re a lot
more alike than you think. ‘We had the
same mind-set,’ John says, ‘but the differ-
ence was he was a lot better. That kind of
dictated his path.’”
I don’t think my brother and I will both
be facing off at the pinnacles of our careers
when we’re older, but I do believe millions
of brothers have a similar story that I had
as a child.
I also know that brothers love to com-
pete. They’re competitive in their DNA.
Brothers have a lot of the same mind-
set, but what you don’t realize sometimes
is you’re grooming someone to be better
than you.
Kevin, you are better than me.
Love you, brother.

StARtERS
PhiliP Jurick, center
Jurick has been a monster on the glass with
fve games of more than 10 rebounds, yet the
points haven’t been coming as easily. Against
Baylor and Kansas State he came up empty. Like
Cobbins, Ford just wants his center to play physi-
cal and let his presence be known.

★★✩✩✩
le’Bryan nash, Forward-Guard
Nash was on his way to a stellar freshman year
(13.3 ppg) before a hand injury caused him to sit
out the tail end of the conference schedule, includ-
ing a match-up at Allen Fieldhouse. Not so amaz-
ingly Nash has continued to average 13.3 points
per game in 2012-13 with a season high of 27
against Missouri. He’ll be key to any success the
Cowboys have.
★★★★✩
Michael coBBins, Forward
The buckets have been hard to come by for the
OSU sophomore, not the rebounds. In his last two
games against West Virginia and Baylor Cobbins
pulled down a combined 13 rebounds while in foul
trouble. Cowboys’ coach Travis Ford has chal-
lenged Cobbins to get more aggressive, in the last
three games he’s certainly stepped up.
★★★✩✩
Markel Brown, Guard
Brown makes up half of OSU’s deadly backcourt
and is a lock to score 20 points most nights. Coach
Ford uses Brown to guard the opposition’s best
perimeter player and for the most part he’s been
able to shut them down while playing 34 minutes
per game.
★★★★✩
Marcus sMart, Guard
There’s no question that Oklahoma State runs
off its freshman point guard. Since breaking out
against NC State in November, Smart has been
a staple of the Big 12. He’s averaging 13 points
per game while dishing out 4.5 assists. Yet like
with most freshman, turnovers have been the one
thing slowing him down.

★★★★✩
KANSAS
(19-1, 7-0)
StARtERS
JeFF withey, center
Withey continued to be the backbone of the
Kansas defense blocking another four shots
against West Virginia on Monday. He also had a
solid frst half with 13 points on fve of six shoot-
ing. Currently Withey is third in the country with
4.32 blocks per game. He’s behind St. John’s Chris
Obekpa and Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel. The Withey
block party will have to continue for Kansas to ex-
tend its winning streak.
★★★★★

keVin younG, Forward
Young has made a few plays here and there in
the past few games, but not with the same con-
sistency. Still having him in the starting lineup
remains the best rotation for Kansas to have going
forward. He’s crafty and has a great motor on de-
fense. If Young can stay controlled around the rim
look for his scoring numbers to go up along with
his confdence.
★★★✩✩
eliJah Johnson, Guard
The curious case of Elijah Johnson continues to
develop and everyone is asking the same question:
can he play point guard? At this point it’s hard to
tell with Johnson who has struggled transitioning
from his natural position at shooting guard. John-
son remains the main question on the Jayhawks
offense. His shooting appears to be getting better
but Kansas needs a foor general in order for the
wins to keep rolling in.
★★★✩✩
traVis releFord, Guard
The ffth year senior has continued to be the
most balanced player on the team the past few
weeks and it has not really been close. Releford has
made several clutch shots and continues to have
lockdown on-ball defense. He’s an important piece
to the Jayhawks puzzle, and without his leadership
the Jayhawks might have lost a few of the closer
games this season.

★★★★✩
Ben McleMore, Guard
Although foul trouble has been a problem of
late McLemore continues to get into double fg-
ures whether it’s from the free throw line or from
three-point range. His 13-points against West Vir-
ginia was not very impressive, but he’s continuing
to become more aggressive. McLemore continues
to grow as a complete player while working to ce-
ment himself as the No. 1 NBA draft pick. McLem-
ore’s a special player. Enjoy him over the next few
weeks.

The Cowboys are clearly one of the
better teams in the Big 12 yet a few
losses have knocked them to the middle
of the pack. It doesn’t help their odds
on Saturday that all but one of their fve
losses came on the road. When Nash,
Smart and Brown are at their best they
can do things like beat NC State by 20.
When they’re not, they can do things like
lose to Virginia Tech.
Why Doesn’t The Talent
Match The Record?
Five losses aren’t the problem, but
with as much talent as Oklahoma State
boasts why are the Cowboys dropping
to Virginia Tech, Baylor, Oklahoma and
Kansas State? Is it a coaching problem
or has this team just not reached it’s
potential yet?

PLAYER tO wAtch
QUEStION mARK
Kansas and Oklahoma State have a
deep and interwoven history. Cowboys
alum Bill Self played in Stillwater from
1981-1985. He also was an assistant
coach in Lawrence and Stillwater. For
reasons yet to be explained games
against the Cowboys can always be
weird. Still Kansas needs a statement
win to put itself in a position for a No.
1 seed when Selection Sunday comes
around. The Big 12 conference is down
and Kansas needs to keep winning to
impress the committee.
Elijah Johnson, guard
Everyone is
hoping Johnson
can turn into the
point guard, but
at the moment
it’s the burning
question. John-
son or Naadir
Tharpe must
step up and
give Kansas
good point guard play down the stretch.
If Johnson starts to develop this, Kansas
could become an unstoppable force in
the Big 12. If he does not then concerns
will continue to grow.
Will the free throw woes con-
tinue for more than one game?
With 16 missed free throws, there was
grave concern about the team’s concen-
tration down the stretch. After being
fairly consistent throughout the year it
appeared the Jayhawks could not make
free throws down the stretch against
the Mountaineers. I would expect the
friendly confnes of Allen Fieldhouse to
help Kansas get back on track from the
free throw line and get back to its 67.6
percent for the season.

The Jayhawks’ offense fnds some sort

good plays for Kansas in the second half
of its game against West Virginia. If the
Jayhawks can start to put together rem-
nants of their game against Colorado
earlier in the year then the fans will start
to breathe a little easier.

The Jayhawks can’t disrupt the Cow-

on defense since conference play started
that shouldn’t change on Saturday.

angel Goodrich’s second half. Goodrich led the Jayhawks
with her aggressiveness and intensity in the second half. Her
aggressiveness was matched by the rest of the team and
helped lead to the victory. Goodrich scored 18 points after half
time and recorded seven assists with just two turnovers.
Game to remember
“It felt like the other shots that were like bricks. once it went
in I was relieved, I mean I was 0 for six, so for that to go in it
felt really good.”
— Goodrich said of the shot she made to send the game to

sophomore guard natalie Knight gets carried off the court after sustaining a knee
injury during the second half against Iowa state wednesday night in allen Field-
house. Kansas won against Iowa state in overtime with a fnal score of 78-75.
Sophomore guard Natalie
Knight was not on the court as
Kansas completed its 78-75 over-
time victory against Iowa State,
but she was instrumental in the
18-point comeback that made it
possible.
K a n s a s
trailed by 14
points when
Natalie Knight
sunk a three
to cut into
the lead. That
was the begin-
ning of a 14-5
run for the Jayhawks. Knight was
responsible for eight of those 14
points.
It was with 1:48 left in regu-
lation that Knight stole the ball
from Iowa State point guard Nikki
Moody and sprinted in the other
direction and hit a lay-up that
cut the lead to 63-60, the closest
the Jayhawks had been since the
Cyclones 23-20 lead in the first
half.
The score that brought Kansas
to within one possession of the
lead also forced Knight to the
ground as she landed awkwardly
on her right leg. Knight immedi-
ately grabbed the back of her knee
in pain.
Knight was carried off the court
by trainers as the crowd at Allen
Fieldhouse fell eerily quiet. She
left the game after scoring 21
points and shooting five of nine
on threes.
From that point, Kansas held
Iowa State
to two more
points and
senior Angel
G o o d r i c h
stepped up
with 13 sec-
onds left to tie
the game on a
3-point shot after a busted play.
Kansas then stopped Iowa State
from scoring on the defensive end,
sending the game into overtime.
In overtime, Goodrich led the
Jayhawks to victory. Goodrich
ended the night with 24 points,
scoring seven of them in over-
time.
“We just kept saying that we got
this,” Goodrich said when asked if
she and Knight had any conversa-
tions before they led the Jayhawks.
“We had it in our heads that we
needed to get back into the game,
and we only could do it by pushing
and being more aggressive.”
“She was huge for us,” Goodrich
said of Knight.
Knight not only helped close
the gap at the end of the game, but
also scored eight of Kansas’ first 10
points of the game.
“We were playing for her,” for-
ward Carolyn Davis said when
asked about when Knight went
down, “and we were playing hard.
She had been a good spark for
us.”
As the game ended and Kansas
Coach Bonnie Henrickson spoke
to the media, the severity of
Knight’s injury to her right knee
was still undetermined.

Senior diver Christy Cash made
some goals coming into her last
season. She wanted to learn two
new dives and earn personal best
scores during meets. She also want-
ed to build upon her success from
last year and qualify for the NCAA
Zone “D” Diving Regionals again.
Needing a
score of 225 on
the 10-meter
platform event
to qualify, she
earned a spot
with her score
of 226 on Jan. 18
in Honolulu.
“My goal was to qualify as early
as I could so that I didn’t have to
worry about it,” Cash said. “I hoped
to be qualifed by the end of winter
training.”
According to the NCAA, there
are fve regional zones and Kansas
is part of zone “D.” At the regional
meets, divers compete for spots
to the NCAA championship. Tis
year, the zone “D” competition will
be held in Houston March 11-13.
Scores needed to qualify are 265 for
the one-meter springboard event,
280 for the three-meter spring-
board and 225 for the platform.
Cash said she estimates there
are 40 divers who compete at the
zone “D” championships. Te top
11 divers move on to the NCAA
championship.
Tis will not be her frst time
there and she hopes her experience
from last year will help her at this
year’s competition.
“I think that my nerves will be a
lot less,” Cash said. “Going in there,
I will know what to expect. I’ve
been there before. I know how the
format works and how everything
is run.”
Beyond her goal of reaching
zones, as she calls it, she wanted to
fnish her diving career on a strong
note. She did learn two new dives
this year, the back two-and-a-half
pike on the three-meter board and
front three-and-a-half pike on the
10-meter platform.
Cash started swimming her
freshman year at Shawnee Mis-
sion West High School. She was a
gymnast at the time and joined the
school swimming and diving team
because her friend asked her to try
it out.
For the next three years, she con-
tinued doing gymnastics and dove
for the school team. Her senior
year, she stopped doing gymnas-
tics and started diving year round.
When she had the opportunity to
come to Kansas to dive, she knew it
was the right decision for her.
“I’ve grown up a Jayhawk,” Cash
said. “Since I was little, this is where
I wanted to come. Te coach here,
Eric, was my club coach, so I knew
his coaching and I knew I liked him
and got along with him. I knew it
would be a good ft for me.”
Afer diving for many years, she
said some dives become routine
and are etched into her muscle
memory. When it comes to new
and more difcult dives, she said
she still feels the rush when she
dives of the board.
“It’s just so crazy,” Cash said.
“Te coolest thing is the adrenaline
rush that you get afer you learn a
new dive or do a dive that you’ve
just learned. It just gets you so
hyped up to learn other dives or try
other things.”
Cash recently had the opportu-
nity to try diving somewhere new
during the winter training trip the
swimming and diving team took to
California and Hawaii over winter
break.
“We got to dive outside in the
sun with mountains in the back-
ground,” Cash said “Overall it was
a really good experience.”
Cash has been enjoying her se-
nior season so far and is looking
forward to the rest of it.
“I think our team is in a really
good spot this year as far as team
chemistry goes,” Cash said. “We
have a lot of talent on the team, so
I’m just excited to see how we all
pull together in the end and how
we do. Obviously, I’m excited for
zones, my potentially last meet.”
