Cummings
gets injured in

The opportunity for


Kansas fans to get a look
at the football team at the
spring game was quickly
overshadowed by an
injury to upcoming senior
quarterback
Michael
Cummings.
Cummings was injured
during a hit by upcoming
senior Michael Glatczak,
while scrambling outside of
the pocket.
Its really unfortunate
that it happened to a guy
like Michael (Cummings),
coach David Beaty said.
I havent spoken to our

medical personnel. I know


theyre evaluating him right
now. Were optimistic that
hes going to be OK.
During a spring game,
the
quarterbacks
are
typically supposed to
remain untouched. To
mark this, they wear red
over their jerseys to remind
the players of that. But
that didnt stop Glatczak,
who hit Cummings left
knee on the play. However,
Cummings was able to walk
off the field gingerly under
his own power.
He did not return to the
game.

Former student speaks about hazing post


ALLISON CRIST
@AllisonCristUDK

After anonymously writing


a post for Feministing.com,
the former student from the
University who pledged a
fraternity his freshman year
spoke to the Kansan through
email to answer questions
regarding his post and time at
the University.
The post discussed both
fraternities being a systemic
issue and his time in an
undisclosed
fraternity,
describing a series of hazing
rituals he and his pledge
brothers went through.
KANSAN: You were in
a fraternity here at the
University for a single

semester, correct? How did


this affect the rest of your time
here?
Correct. After that surreal
fall semester, the spring
semester started out lonely, but
I gradually made some friends
through my classes, and the
freedom from peers telling me
what to do was exhilarating.
KANSAN: Were you given
a hard time for leaving the
fraternity? Did you remain
friends with anyone after you
left?
I pretty quickly lost touch
with all of them, though any
of the members I ran into on
campus were friendly. It was
a case of mutual deterrents:

They were nice because they


knew I might otherwise report
them, and I didnt dare report
them because I didnt want to
worry about retaliation.

hazing incidents at KU, which


suggested that not much had
changed since I was a student.
Then I did a bit of research
and realized that were talking
about not one, not two, but
six studies in your lifetime
that have shown a predictive
correlation between fraternity
membership and sexually
coercive behavior.
That said, I dont mean to
suggest that even a doubledigit percentage of fraternity
men are sexually coercive.
Were talking about 7-8 percent
of members versus 2-4 percent
of unaffiliated men. The
question is whether sexually
coercive men are more apt to
join fraternities or if fraternity
culture is making some more
sexually coercive. Its likely

KANSAN: Why did you feel


the need to publish this story
now?
All the national news
items of the past few months
prompted me to reflect on
the coercion I experienced,
and how that entitlement
to control and power over
peers of the same sex could
emerge with members of
the opposite sex (especially
after too many drinks). I felt
compelled to explain that
connection, especially after
reviewing recent assault and

some of both, but universities


could address the latter aspect
by retiring coercive practices
like pledge programs, as
SAE [Sigma Alpha Epsilon]
has already done, and by
delaying
affiliation
and
residency so young men are
more acclimated to college
life and less desperate for
peer approval. Its obviously
imperative
that
schools
better educate all incoming
students about the difference
between clear consent and
sexual coercion, but so long
as freshmen fraternity initiates
are secretly coerced on a daily
basis, its nave to expect that
this behavior wont ultimately
fuel more assaults.

A giant spotlight lit the


sky Thursday night as part
of the Light the Night
event for Sexual Assault
Awareness Month. The
event was held to raise
awareness about sexual
violence and its prevention.
University administrators
estimated that 30-40 people
stopped
by
Danforth
Chapel, where the light was
positioned, on Thursday

FBALL FROM PAGE 1


Beaty said he has heard
conflicting stories on whether
the hit was intentional, but
Cummings insisted it wasnt.
[Cummings] looked up at me
and said, 'Coach, he didnt mean
to do it. He got pushed into
me, Beaty said. When you
get to the spring game, youre
always scared to death. Anytime
you take a snap, youre at risk
of getting somebody injured.
When one of your quarterbacks
goes down like that, it takes your
breath away.
In just over one quarter of
work, Cummings threw for 43
yards and completed 4-of-8
passes. Before his injury, he
split time at quarterback
with upcoming junior
Montell Cozart. After
Cummings left the game,
Cozart was the quarterback
for the blue team full-time.
The junior started a bit
slow, throwing for just 48
yards, while completing
seven of 13 passes in the first
half. However, he eventually
got going.
I thought he did OK. He
was kind of up and down,
Beaty said. I would like
to see him improve in his
fundamentals and footwork.
To me, being a quarterback
always goes back to [that].
Midway through the

to ask what it was for.


University staff members
were available to talk inside
the chapel with people
seeking support.
Student Conduct and
Community
Standards
Coordinator Joshua Jones
said he thought the event
went well. He heard the
spotlight could be seen
from downtown Lawrence,
K-10 highway and even at
the intersection of Sixth and
Wakarusa.
Next year wed love to
see, not open flames, but

maybe fraternities and


sororities, people around
the community putting
tea lights in their windows
not only to show a light on
sexual assault, but as well
to show that were taking a
stand against it, to show a
community effort to change
this and to work on this
problem, Jones said.
Jones said he hopes Light
the Night becomes a staple
event during Sexual Assault
Awareness Month. Jones
also said awareness is only
the first step and he loved

when a group of students


walking by asked what the
event was for and how they
could help, which he said is
the next step.

third quarter, Cozarts pass


was tipped and intercepted by
senior linebacker Aaron Plump,
leading to a touchdown for the
white team. That was about
it, as far as his struggles were
concerned.
After the interception,
Cozart bounced back and
led an impressive touchdown
drive, capped off by a 19-yard
pass to upcoming senior wide
receiver Shakiem Barbel.
As
long
as
those
fundamentals are there, and
the feet are in place, normally
he executes pretty well, Beaty
said. Hes like just about
anybody else. He doesnt
have enough experience at
this level to overcome poor

fundamentals, but not many


people can.
And in the fourth quarter,
Cozart showed off those
fundamentals, throwing an
impressive 85-yard touchdown
pass to junior tight end Kent

Taylor.
Cozart ended up going 16of-26 for 219 yards, with two
touchdowns and only one
interception, which was pretty
solid considering his rough
start.

I think its a really important


issue on our campus, and so
I think that this is definitely
something that will catch
peoples attention.
ABBY LANPHEAR
Freshman from Overland Park

Abby
Lanphear,
a
freshman from Overland
Park, was among the group
of students who stopped to
ask Jones and other officials
what was going on.
I was a little bit
confused, Lanphear said.
Im glad its actually this. I
think its a really important
issue on our campus, and so
I think that this is definitely
something that will catch
peoples attention.

If Cummings injury sidelines


him for any great length of
time, it will be crucial for the
Jayhawks that Cozart continues
to grow in the Jayhawks' air raid

Kansas one of 15 states to adopt Uniform Bar Exam


ALLSION CRIST
@allisoncristudk

Kansas will become one of


15 states to adopt the Uniform
Bar Exam (UBE) beginning
in February 2016.
The UBE is similar to the
regular bar exam, a test that
assesses whether a student is
qualified to practice law in
the given jurisdiction.
However, if students take
the UBE in Kansas, their score
can be transferred to any of
the other jurisdictions that
have adopted the test, rather
than having to take another
bar exam in a different area.
Because only one test is
required, the UBE is the
same in all jurisdictions,
whereas the essay portion for

the regular bar exam varies


depending on the area.
Our graduates are now
going to be able to practice
in up to 15 states by sitting
for this exam only once, said
Stephen Mazza, dean of the
School of Law.
Mazza said this adoption
will especially benefit students
in Kansas and Missouri.
Missouri adopted the UBE
years ago, Mazza said. Many
who practice in Kansas City
have clients on both sides of
the state line, so that requires
them to be licensed in both
states.
In the past, students have
been required to take two
different exams, all the
while waiting six months in
between.

This in itself is extraordinary, because it brings these


recent graduates into the job
market rather than keeping
them out of it.
ARTURO THOMPSON
Assistant dean of
career services

Now, they can get started


with their careers much
sooner, Mazza said.
This is especially true for
graduates who have already
taken the UBE in Missouri.
Arturo Thompson, assistant
dean of career services, said
these students can transfer

their scores to Kansas now,


rather than having to wait
until February of 2016.
This
in
itself
is
extraordinary, because it
brings these recent graduates
into the job market rather
than keeping them out of it,
Thompson said.
Mazza said the UBE will
not only save students an
immense amount of time, but
give them more leverage with
employers.
Graduates
will
have
insurance that theyve passed
the exam. They dont have to
wait to see if they pass it in a
different jurisdiction, Mazza
said.
Jacqueline Patton from
Wichita will be graduating
from the School of Law in

Kansas will join 14 other states in administering the Uniform


Bar Exam.
Law students will only have to take one test, and that score
will transfer to any of the 15 states.
Effective immediately, Missouri graduates can transfer their
UBE score to Kansas and begin practicing on both sides of
the state line.

May of 2016, and she said she


is excited that she will be able
to take the UBE.
I think its great, Patton
said. It makes us [the
University] more appealing to
future law students who may
not want to practice in Kansas
forever, like myself.
Even though there are only
15 states that administer the
UBE, Patton still thinks the
exam is beneficial.
It depends on where youre

going, but there are enough


[states] that I think its still
worth it, Patton said.
As of right now, the 14
other states that have adopted
the UBE are: Alabama,
Alaska, Arizona, Colorado,
Idaho, Minnesota, Missouri,
Montana, Nebraska, New
Hampshire, North Dakota,
Utah,
Washington
and
Wyoming.

what bothered me was the
number of people saying they

because shes a woman.

known as one of the most

positions in policy making,
along with Eleanor Roosevelt

attending Yale Law School,
Clinton showed interest in
children, families and social

issues that influenced her
during her upbringing.
Those topics still resonate
with Clinton today as she
has demonstrated through
her acts on health care and

Rubio because theyre men,


there would be outrage. A
March 2014 Gallup poll asked
what Americans thought was
Clintons top selling point
if elected president in 2016.
Aside from nothing and
no opinion, the highest
reason was that she would
be the first female president.
I have seen few social
media posts discussing her
qualifications for president.
Simply saying, We need a
female president is not a
reason to potentially elect
someone as this nations ruler.
Clinton is qualified to run,
but its not because shes
a woman. As a working
mother from a middle-class
family, Clinton will no doubt
focus on womens rights and
the middle class two issues
President Obama has focused
on. She has experience with
national security, serving as
secretary of state from 20092013 under Obama and as a
part of the Armed Services
Committee while serving as a
U.S. senator from New York.

@anissafritzz

t seems as if we are
always evaluating
others and ourselves
with numbers. These
defining numbers appear
in almost every aspect
of our lives without us
noticing half the time
the number of followers we
have on our social media
accounts or the score we
got on our ACT/SAT.
Ironically, another number
holding significant weight
in our lives is, well, our
weight.
There is no perfect way to
go about telling people they
have put on a few pounds.
However, there are more
effective ways to show you
care about their well-being
more than the actual extra
weight itself. I would
recommend sitting your
friend down and opening

the conversation with a


question or comment.
Something as simple as,
Hows school going? or
How are your parents?
would qualify. Sudden
weight gain is sometimes
linked to stress or
something larger (no pun
intended) than just being
lazy or eating too much.
During my freshman year
whenever I felt stressed,
my favorite boyfriends,
Ben and Jerry, were always
there to comfort me with
their ice cream goodness.
Do not, and I repeat, do
not say, Ive noticed that
you have gained some
weight. The moment you
say this, or anything that
resembles it, is the exact
moment when your friend
will get defensive and try to
throw the nearest lamp at
you or break down in tears.
Get through this touchy
topic unscathed by making
sure your friend knows you

arent concerned about the


actual number of pounds
or how good they look
in pictures, but that you
care about their overall
health and happiness. Once
you make this clear, your

Learning about ideas and

perspective of our own
beliefs. Without knowing
what else there is to believe
in, we cant claim to believe
in anything at all. More
than that, understanding
what and how others think
reminds us that everyone
has a right to believe in
what they want. Preventing

Washburn University Law


School in the Christian
Legal Society spoke in
opposition to the groups
beliefs while leading its
weekly Bible study. The
other members removed
him from leading the group.
Being a person of belief
myself, I dont think this bill
is the answer to Fitzgeralds
concerns.
Have supporters of SB
175 even considered how a
measure like this would be
enforced? Theres no easy
way to discern what beliefs
someone holds. The only
way this could be feasible
would be to require students
to disclose their personal
beliefs to that organization,
which would be a serious
violation of their privacy.
There is a reason we
have separation of church
and state in our country.
If religious groups want
to restrict membership
for whatever reason and
face the consequences for
it, then thats their choice.
But when the state uses tax
dollars to help subsidize its
discrimination is where I
draw the line. Lawmakers
are free to hold their own
private opinions, but
those shouldnt spill over
into their duties to their
constituents.
Instead of crafting a
law that would be used
to exclude others, a more
reasonable approach should
be taken. If a student of
another belief wants to
sit in on a meeting and
engage in a polite and
respectful manner, no harm
done. If they choose to act
condescending and rude,
eject them from the group
and notify University staff
of the incident. Theres no
need to devise a bill that

Merely Players centers on feminism


KATE MILLER
@_Kate_Miller_

At the end of Merely


Players, protagonist Phebe
addresses the audience:
Women, I hope you liked
this show. Men, I dont care
if you liked this show. If you
dont know what you are,
keep looking.
Although the statement
comes at the end of the show,
the feminist themes of the
production are obvious to
audiences from the very
beginning as should be
the case in an all-femaleproduced play.
Merely
Players,
the
newest
production
by
the Jayhawk Initiative for
Student Theatre, opened
last night at the William
Inge Memorial Theatre in
Murphy Hall. The play, based
on an early 17th-century
classic, modernizes a tale of
romance and self-discovery
through progressive themes
and casting.
This
continuation
of
Shakespeares As You Like
It follows shepherd-girl
Phebe and her struggle to
discover who she is. After
falling in love with Rosalind,
a woman dressed in drag
in Shakespeares original
story, student playwright
Katherine Gywnns Phebe
must come to terms with
her feelings for Rosalind as
well as her place in a maledominated world.
This is not a play written
for men, said Gywnn, a
senior from Olathe. This
is not a play written for a
males gaze. I hope that men
can still enjoy it and find
something in it, because I

think its a beautiful human


narrative, but this is a play
that really centers around
women.
In the spirit of that message,
the playwright, director and
cast of Merely Players are
all females. Lynn Deboeck,
a doctoral student from
Vienna, Va., directs the play.
Actors Emily Schwerdtfeger,
Brianna Woods and Caroline
Collett, a junior from
Marion, play both female
and male characters, adding
a feminine dynamic to a
story originally performed
by only men.
It ensures that it comes
from a female perspective,
said
Schwerdtfeger,
a
sophomore from Columbus,
Ohio. No matter what
character is being played,
what lines are being said,
its been thought about by a
team of women.
For
Woods,
the
collaboration
between
such a group of smart and
capable women has only
strengthened the show.
I think weve all worked
really hard to make a
safe place, said Woods, a
sophomore from Overland
Park. Its basically like a big
workshop and collaboration
between the five of us. We all
have similar viewpoints, so
that makes it easy for us to
construct the show that we
want.
In addition to female
empowerment in a maledominated
world,
the
play deals with the topic
of sexuality and gender
identification as characters
Phebe and Rosalind struggle
to clarify their feelings for
each other. Although this

relationship is present in
Shakespeares original story,
Merely Players emphasizes
the confusion and difficulty
in a way not possible in
Shakespeares time.
Identifying with gender
and sexuality is still a big
issue [today], Schwerdtfeger
said. I think people arent
comfortable with those who
dont identify as heterosexual
or the gender they were born
into. I think this deals with
these issues in a way that
helps people understand why
people are confused about
their sexuality or confused
about their gender.
Although
the
themes
originate in Shakespeares
time, the play has a modern
twist. Starting out with the
original epilogue from As
You Like It, the language
of the play quickly shifts
from poetic prose to modern
dialogue. Combined with the
emphasis on modern ideas
and issues, Gywnn said she
hopes her new storytelling
will draw in viewers from all
backgrounds.
Whether youre interested
in questions about gender
and sexuality, in seeing a
play that really renders queer
women in a complex way, in
seeing a show that talks about
what its like to be caught in
a cycle of abuse, or whether
youre just really interested
in seeing a great show, I hope
you would consider coming
out to see this play, she said.
Merely Players runs at
7:30 p.m. today and Tuesday
at the William Inge Memorial
Theatre in Murphy Hall. The
show is free, and donations
are appreciated.

Yogathon to host renowned yogic scholar


KELLY CORDINGLEY
@kellycordingley

When the thoughts of finals


become a nagging, everpresent stressor, graduate
students Krishna Ghimire
from Nepal and Prasad
Shripathi from India suggest
meditation and yoga. A
free workshop tonight will
allow students to learn from
leading yogic scholar, Dinesh
Kashikar, about how to calm
the body and mind.
This is a way to get rid of
stress because energy in your
body and in your mind, they
get mixed up, Ghimire said.
Your energy will transfer
throughout your body as you
want and require. In this one
class, we teach you to do this
on your own to make yourself
better.
This event is hosted by
The Art of Living Club at
KU, a chapter of the global
non-profit educational and
humanitarian
foundation,

The Art of Living. The yoga


and meditation workshop
will be in the Union Parlors
Room from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Ghimire and Shripathi are
both members of the club
and strong believers in the
powerful effects of yoga and
meditation.
It makes a world of
difference,
Shripathi
said. I started doing yoga
through The Art of Living
and it changed my mind. It
synchronizes your body and
mind. The main reason for
stress in our lives is our mind
thinks something and our
body wants something else. If
you want to synchronize, you
have to practice yoga.
After learning Kashikar
would be in the Kansas City
area for a separate event,
the club reached out to him
and requested he come to
the University. Hes taught in
countries around the world
since he became a teacher in
2004.

The guy conducting this


is an expert, and I believe he
has something to provide to
students, Ghimire said. Last
year, I conducted the course,
and many people liked it. So,
based on that experience,
people will really like this.

Theres a lot of stress with


exams and projects, so
doing yoga and meditation
brings it all together. This
class will be very helpful.
PRASAD SHRIPATHI
Graduate student from India

Initially, Ghimire booked a


smaller room in the Union.
But after posting the event on
Facebook and hearing from
other students, he realized
theyd need more room. He
said meditation and yoga are
great ways to recharge during

the day.
If Im stressed during the
day, instead of sleeping, Ill
meditate for 20 minutes,
Ghimire said. Then Im ready
to go for another five or six
hours for that night class or
whatnot.
Shripathi has done yoga for
four years and said he saw
multiple aspects of his life turn
around when he implemented
it into his life.
My work got improved,
my timing, productivity
and relationships, he said.
Theres a lot of stress with
exams and projects, so doing
yoga and meditation brings it
all together. This class will be
very helpful.
This workshop will teach
students how to cope with
their stresses and center
themselves in a way Shripathi
said is used by people
worldwide.
Yoga is more than a body
movement, he said. You
need to know the meaning,

you have to have faith in it.


Many people in the world
practice yoga and have realize
dthe positive benefits of yoga.
According to Mayo Clinic,
some of the benefits of yoga
include: stress reduction,
improved
fitness
and
management of chronic
conditions. The site elaborates,
saying, [a] number of studies
have shown that yoga can help
reduce stress and anxiety. It
can also enhance your mood
and overall sense of wellbeing.
Shripathi said students
who participate will reap a
plethora of benefits by joining
in a network of millions of
people who practice yoga and
meditation.
We feel if we can involve
students
and
do
this
workshop, hopefully people
will do more yoga, and
benefits of yoga can be shared
by everyone, he said.

QUICK QUESTION
Jane Asbury, a retired art professor at the University, and a former student of hers Francie Costello, a 1977 alumna, had just reunited for the
first time in a movie theater bathroom of all places. The two, among about five other patrons had just seen Woman in Gold and made a
pit stop in the restroom before heading out. The Kansan spoke with the two women about why they each felt so passionate about art.

Kansan: What was your favorite part about teaching art/being an art student?

Once when one of


my jewelry instructors
was giving a demonstration, I just felt
like this is where I
belong.
FRANCIE COSTELLO

Working with

Bruce Jenner announces female


gender identity in milestone interview
Lily Grant

@lilygrant_UDK

ruce Jenner, former


Olympian and
current reality TV
star, announced his true
gender identity in a twohour-long interview with
Diane Sawyer on ABC 20/20
on Friday night, and the
world reacted positively with
open arms. Jenner declared
that from this point forward,
he will be living his life as a
woman.
Im me. Im a person,
and thats who I am. Im
not stuck in anybodys
body, its just who I am as a
human being. My brain is
much more female than it is
male. Its hard for people to
understand that, but thats
what my soul is, Jenner said
in the interview.
More than 1 million Twitter
users were tweeting about the
interview, and it was the No.1
trending topic worldwide.
Jenner won the gold medal
for the decathlon at the 1976

Olympics in Montreal. Many


consider him one of the
greatest athletes of all time
he considers himself a
confused person at that time
of his life.
[I was] running away from
my life; running away from
who I was, Jenner said.
He said he has been
confused about his gender
identity from a very young
age. He began taking
hormones in the 80s and
has undergone several
plastic surgeries, including
a tracheal reduction that
made his features look more
feminine.
Although Jenner is making
the transition from a man
to a woman, he said hes not
gay. He has been married
three times and has fathered
six children. He said he has
never been with a man, and
that hes only attracted to
women.
Sawyer mentioned
that many viewers were
convinced that Jenner was
making this announcement

as a publicity stunt for the


reality show Keeping Up
With the Kardashians.
Jenner thought the notion
was ridiculous, and said he
would never go through what
he has been through for a
television show.
Jenner said he still wants
to be referred to using the
familiar pronouns him and
he.
Its been really tough, but
here I am. Im still here, he
said.
Jenner said he has thought
about killing himself, out of
fear of the scrutiny he could
potentially face from people,
but he said, I want to know
how this story ends. You
know? How does my story
end?
Jenners interview marks
a moment in history,
which is revolutionary
for the transgender
community. He contributed
to the conversation about
transgender people by
sharing his story with the
world and said he hopes

to inspire and save the lives


of many. Jenner received
support and positive
feedback from the much of
the Internet and has the love
and support of his family and
friends.
What Im doing is going
to do some good, and were
going to change the world. I
really firmly believe that were
going to make a difference
in the world with what were
doing, Jenner said.

Winehouse family criticizes


misleading documentary
ASSOCIATED PRESS

SUDOKU

CRYPTOQUIP

LONDON The family of


Amy Winehouse has criticized
a documentary about the
late singer that is due to have
its premiere at next months
Cannes Film Festival.
A statement issued Sunday
by family spokesman Chris
Goodman
said
director
Asif Kapadias Amy is
misleading and contains
some basic untruths.
The statement said the film
suggested family members
did too little to help the
singer, who died in July 2011
at age 27 of accidental alcohol
poisoning. The soul diva,
whose 2006 album Back
to Black won five Grammy
Awards, had battled drug and
alcohol abuse for years.
The family statement said
the movie did not reflect
the huge effort from all
concerned to help Amy at all
stages.
Fundamentally,
the
Winehouse family believes
that the film does a disservice
to individuals and families
suffering from the complicated
affliction of addiction, it said.
The filmmakers said in a
statement that they began
work with total objectivity
and the support of the
Winehouse family. They said
the documentary was the
result of interviews with
about 100 people who
knew the singer, including
friends, family, former
partners and members of
the music industry that
worked with her.
Kapadia
won
wide
acclaim with Senna,
a documentary about
the late motor racing
champion Ayrton Senna.
Amy is due to screen
out of competition at the
May 13-24 Cannes festival.

The late British singer Amy Winehouse is the focus of a documentary that

Junior Chaley Brickey tags out freshman Kelsey Arnold from Oklahoma on a steal to end the fourth inning on Friday night. This led to a stop in Oklahomas momentum and a 4-2 victory for Kansas. Kansas lost the remaining two games in the series.

Jayhawks unable to win


series against Sooners
DEREK SKILLETT
@derek_skillett

Despite a great start to


the weekend, the Jayhawks
(35-10, 5-7) were unable
to win their series against
the No. 5 Oklahoma
Sooners (42-7, 14-2). The
Jayhawks lost the series
2-1. Kansas has won only
one conference series this
season.
The Jayhawks began the
weekend
upsetting
the
Sooners 4-2 on Friday night.
They won the game in extra
innings on a go-ahead
two-run home run from
freshman Daniella Chavez
in the eighth inning.
It feels amazing, Chavez
said. I was down the whole
game, striking out, but with
the whole team supporting
me I just came out and
bounced back.
The Jayhawks recorded
only three hits in Fridays
game,
but
all
three
contributed to their victory.
Junior
Chaley
Brickey
recorded two hits: a two-run
home run to tie the game in
the fifth inning and a double
to set up Chavezs home run
in the eighth inning.
(Chavez) is one of the
best hitters in the country.

As a freshman, she has ups


and downs and got a couple
bad at-bats, Kansas coach
Megan Smith said. Shes
always ready. One swing of
the bat and she can change
a game.
Unfortunately,
the
Jayhawks could not carry that
momentum into Saturdays
game. Kansas was shut out to
the tune of a 13-0 loss. The
Jayhawks only recorded two
hits during the game, one
from senior Maddie Stein
and another from freshman
Erin McGinley.
Kansas
inability
to
create any offense against
Oklahoma freshman pitcher
Paige Parker was the
difference between Friday
and Saturdays games.
The biggest difference
is that we didnt make
adjustments to (Parker),
Stein said. We already
saw her for seven or eight
innings (on Friday), and we
should have known what
her tendencies were and
what she was going to give
us, and we didnt make that
adjustment to her.
The Jayhawks made a good
comeback effort Sunday.,
but they couldnt find a way
to defeat the Sooners, losing
7-4. Kansas scored all four

of its runs in the final three


innings, but freshman Jessie
Roane couldnt capitalize
with two runners on base,
striking out to end the game.
Brickey led the Jayhawks
with two hits Sunday. Stein
and Chavez added one hit
apiece for the Jayhawks.
Senior pitcher Alicia Pille
got the start for the Jayhawks
on Sunday and allowed
10 hits and seven scores
while only recording four
strikeouts.
Today we fought the
entire game and gave
ourselves a chance to win,
Smith said. Against a team
like Oklahoma, thats all you
can ask for. Give yourselves
a chance to win, and we did
that today.
On a better note, the
Jayhawks managed to hold
Oklahomas
star
senior
Lauren Chamberlain to
only one hit over the
three
weekend
games.
Chamberlain entered the
weekend with 90 career
home runs and a 1.009
slugging percentage this
season.

Tennis falls to Oklahoma


State in championships
JACOB CLEMEN
@jclemn9

Kansas womens tennis fell


to No. 11 Oklahoma State
4-0 in the quarterfinals of the
Big 12 Championships on
Friday, ending its 2015 season.
In Waco, Texas, the Jayhawks
faced odd circumstances as
rainy weather delayed the
match two hours and forced a
move indoors to the Hawkins
Indoor Tennis Center. The
rain delay also forced the
teams to begin with singles
play, rather than the usual
doubles matches.
The Cowgirls made quick
work of the young Kansas
team as they defeated a pair
of freshmen to jump out to a
2-0 lead. Freshman Summer
Collins was the first to fall as
she lost 6-2, 6-1 while fellow
freshman Alexis Czapinski
fared only slightly better,

falling 6-3, 6-4.


In the second singles
position, freshman Smith
Hinton was dropped by a
score of 6-3, 6-3 as Oklahoma
State surged ahead 3-0. The
deciding match was senior
Maria Belen Ludueas final
appearance as a Jayhawk as
she lost 6-3, 6-4 in the top
singles position.
Coach Todd Chapman
credited Oklahoma States
experience and effort as it
outplayed Kansas.
I think Oklahoma State
did a great job of playing with
leads at that point and kind of
loosened up. They played well
and took it to us at a couple
of spots, Chapman said in a
press release. I thought we
played well and had chances,
but there is a reason theyve
been top 10 in the country all
season. They can play the big
points, and this may be sort of

an experience for us.


Kansas will look to the offseason to regroup and gain
experience as it expects to
have many returning players
who were relied on heavily in
their freshman seasons.
I feel like this has been
a year of growth. We are
really young and played a
majority of the year with four
freshmen, maybe five, in the
lineup, Chapman said. The
one thing they gave me all year
was effort. They had both feet
in and cared a lot about what
was going on. I feel like we got
a lot better and grew as people
and competitors.
Kansas finished the year 8-15
overall and 4-6 against Big 12
opponents. Fridays match was
the first time in three seasons
that Kansas lost its first match
in the Big 12 Championships.

Sporting KC stuns Houston


Dynamo in late 4-4 draw
GRIFFIN HUGHES
@GriffinJHughes

One point.
In soccer, earning one point
for a match signifies a draw,
a 90-minute game where
both teams end up with the
same score. A draw is usually
associated with the boring 0-0
snooze-fests that are played
entirely in the center field.
A typical draw isnt thought
of as a 4-4 slugfest ending in
a 94th minute goal to seal a
single point for a team.
A typical draw doesnt have
28 shots between the two
teams, a 100 percent shot on

goal conversion rating, and


five goals combined in the
second half.
A typical draw doesnt
feature two teams desperate
to stay in the hunt, as
Sporting KC and Houston
were Saturday at the BBVA
Compass Stadium.
This wasnt a typical draw.
Sporting KC set the tone
early as forward Krisztin
Nmeth netted a beautiful
right-foot shot to the far post
in the second minute. It was a
rare goal in the run of play for
Sporting KC and it was just
the beginning of a shootout
that would take the full 90

minutes and then some


to settle.
The Dynamo answered
back, scoring off a botched
clearance from Sporting
KC defender Matt Besler,
when Houston forward Giles
Barnes blasted a sweet volley
into the upper corner of KC
goalkeeper Luis Marns near
post. That goal came just nine
minutes later after Sporting
opened the tally.
The scoring was just getting
started.

I knew he was crafty, I mean, a great


shooter Theres nothing you can do.
You try to pressure him and run him
off the [three-point] line and hell hit
incredible shots in the lane. You back
off so he wont drive, hes going to
hit a three. So youve got to pick your
poison, and hes a tough player to
guard. Thats why hes [a candidate]
for MVP.

Stephen Curry should be the 2015 NBA most valuable player


Chris Sitek
@ChrisSitek

here are 10 seconds


to go in game three
and the Golden
State Warriors are trailing
the New Orleans Pelicans
105-108. Warriors have the
ball, forward Draymond
Green passes it out to guard
Stephen Curry. Curry takes
two dribbles and shoots the
three. Short. He gets another
chance from the left corner
off an offensive rebound and
splash. The game is headed
to overtime.
Golden State went on to
win this game 123-119 in
overtime. This marked the
third largest fourth quarter
comeback in NBA history,
but more importantly it
showed the greatness that
is Curry. Curry finished the
game with 40 points and

nine assists, according to


ESPN.go.com. Curry followed his huge game-three
performance with another
big outing, pouring in 39
points, eight rebounds and
nine assists in Golden States
game-four win, 109-98, to
sweep the Pelicans, according to basketball-reference.
com.
The sixth-year point guard
has dominated this postseason leading the NBA in
points-per-game with 33.8
and is fifth in the NBA with
7.3 assists per game. Curry
is known for being a precise
sharpshooter, but he can
beat opponents in so many
ways. According to basketball-reference.com, Curry
led the NBA in free-throw
percentage at an astounding
91 percent made. He is also
a gifted passer and is sixth
among active players with
7.7 assists per game, accord-

ing to ESPN.go.com.
During the regular season
Curry was sixth in the league
at 23.8 points-per-game
and was fourth in the NBA,
shooting 44 percent from
three. He led the Warriors
to a 67-15 regular season
record with a 39-2 home
record, both the best in the
NBA, according to ESPN.
go.com. This earned Golden
State the No. 1 seed in the
Western Conference. With
that they swept the New
Orleans Pelicans and their
star power-forward Anthony
Davis, 4-0. According to vegasinsider.com, the Golden
State Warriors are 8-to-5
favorites to win the NBA
title, and this is due in large
part to the play of Stephen
Curry.
Additionally, Stephen
Curry broke the NBA record
for three-pointers made
with 286. This broke his old

record of
272 threes
he made two
years ago.
Curry had
a 10-game
streak where
he scored
20 or more
points in
each game during January and February. He has
only been held to under 10
points four times the entire
season, according to ESPN.
go.com.
Currys success didnt come
right away. He has battled
several injuries, including
repeated ankle issues that
caused him to miss 40 games
during 2011-2012 season,
according to probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com.
He also lived under the
shadow of a team known for
having great point guards.
According to rantsports.com

and encyclopedia.
com, the team
has held All-Star
Phil Smith; twotime All-Star Baron
Davis, who led the
improbable upset of
the Dallas Mavericks,
a then-No. 1 seed and
ended a 12-year playoff
drought for the Warriors;
four-time All-Star Guy
Rodgers, whos the teams alltime assist leader; and fivetime All-Star Tim Hardaway,
who is second all-time in
assists for the team.
Curry had some big shoes
to fill. Now it is Currys time
and with that he has shined
especially in the brightest
of moments (think: buzzer
beater in game three), and
thats why I believe Stephen
Curry is the 2015 NBA most
valuable player.

Mens golf seeks first Big 12 Championship in 16 years


NICK COUZIN
@Ncouz

Kansas mens golf took its


talent to Tulsa, Okla., this
week to take part in the Big 12
Championshipat Southern Hills
Country Club. The tournament
will consist of 72 holes with 36
played Monday and 18 each on
Tuesday and Wednesday.
Coach Jamie Bermels lineup
for the tournament consists of
juniors Ben Welle and Connor
Peck, sophomore Chase Hanna,
and freshmen Jacques Wilson
and Daniel Hudson.
CHASE HANNA

Hanna by far has been the best


player on this Jayhawk team this
year. The Jayhawks played in a
total of 11 tournaments this year
and Hanna led the team in five of
them. He also finished in the top
20 in six of them. Additionally, he
had the lowest stroke on the team
this season with 72 strokes per
round and he had the lowest total
team score with eight rounds in
the 60s. In Kansas history, he sits
18th all time as a second-year
program player.
His play on the greens also
translates to the classroom, as
he was a Big 12 Academic AllAmerican.

I think his experience is a big


thing for Chase, Bermel said in

has seen the golf courses last year,
and his maturity as a sophomore
has really helped as well. Chase
continues to get better each
week.
BEN WELLE
Welle really came onto the
scene in the fall when he tallied
the lowest score on the team
twice. His stroke average is
second lowest on the team at
72.4 per round, and it falls only
behind Chase Hanna on the
team.

COMMENTARY
LeBrons firstround dominance
underrated

New football coach David Beaty looking for his best 11 in spring game

Scott Chasen
@SChasenKU

ings.
So often this is the
argument when talking
about players legacies, especially
when it comes to the NBA.
However, another statistic can
say a lot about a player.
First round record.
Dont get me wrong. Finals
victories and appearances
are incredibly important in
the legacy discussion. After
all, Michael Jordan had six of
each, Magic Johnson had five
and nine, respectively, and Bill
Russell posted 11 of each.
Leading a team to an NBA
Championship is an incredible
achievement, but its certainly
not the be-all and end-all.
However, it is worth noting
that James has started to reach
the territory of the elite in that
category, in his 12th season.
Right now, its possible (and
maybe even probable) James
could get back to the finals
this year, but looking at the
11 seasons hes completed, his
numbers stack up quite well.
At 30, James has reached the
NBA Finals five times and has
two rings to show for it, but for
a player just halfway through
his career, its not completely
accurate to compare his
accomplishments to players who
have completed their careers.
However, as far as firstround record is concerned, the
numbers are quite telling.
In his 10 postseasons, James
hasnt been eliminated in
the first round, and barring
something dramatic this year,
hell have never been eliminated
from the playoffs in 10-or-fewer
games in his career.
Michael Jordan, who seems
to be the person James is always
compared to, was eliminated in
the first round of the playoffs in
each of his first three years in the
league, and he was eliminated
in 10-or-fewer games in the
playoffs five times.
It took Jordan five NBA
seasons to get past that 10-game
mark; it took James three.
Now compare that to other
legends. Magic Johnson was
knocked out in the first round
of the NBA playoffs twice. He
made it fewer than 10 games
three times. Larry Bird lost in
the first round two times. He
played 10-or-fewer games five
times.
Considering how bad
some of James teammates
have been over the years, this
accomplishment is exemplified
greatly. Here are the players
who started alongside James
in his first playoff game: Drew
Gooden, Zydrunas Ilgauskas,
Eric Snow and Larry Hughes.
And in that first game, those
four combined to score 33
points on 13 made field goals.
By himself, James scored 32
points on 12 made field goals,
playing all 48 minutes of the
game. And with James leading
the way, the Cavaliers won the
game.
Ultimately, a mark like firstround success isnt something
that will be considered in legacy
talks, nor is it something that
carries the weight of perhaps 20
other career accomplishments.
However, LeBrons first-round
record is extremely impressive
in this day and age, especially
considering how bad some of
his teammates were, at least
before he teamed up with
Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh
in Miami.

CHRISTIAN HARDY
@HardyNFL

It was a muggy, rainy day,


but the Kansas football
team was finally playing in
Memorial Stadium in front
of fans. Even though it was
with a new head coach, a
new offense and a new motto,
they were on the field, and
there was plenty to keep eyes
peeled for.
It was a slow first half,
which ended in the blue team
(first-team offense) leading
3-0. But the second half gave
Memorial Stadium a glimpse
of the sun peeking through
the clouds, and the play on
the field reflected that. The
game was more exciting,
as the blue team marched
to a 20-7 victory behind
upcoming junior quarterback
Montell Cozart.
But with the injury to
senior quarterback Michael
Cummings, the score was of
little importance in the full
spectrum of Saturdays game.
EARN IT
It has been said before, and
it will be uttered many more
times this season: Everything
on this Kansas team is up
for grabs and will have to be
earned, according to coach
David Beaty. Everything
includes the Jayhawk decals
on the sides of player helmets
and names on the back of
their jerseys.

Were trying to take that


blue-collar approach, Beaty
said. Were not going to
worry about things that dont
help us win until that time
comes Were going to wear
just a helmet and just a jersey,
and were going to focus
on trying to become better
players.
Another thing fans didnt
see Saturday was the tempo
Beaty wants to play at. Rather
than the up-tempo pace seen
at practice, Beaty slowed it
down for teaching reasons.
I just wanted them to play
straight up football today
because thats something we
havent done, Beaty said.
There was no blitzing today.
There were no fake reverses,
no reverses. There were
hardly [any] misdirections
offensively.
Just like every college team
in the country, Beaty didnt
want to lay all his cards on
the table just yet. However,
on future Saturdays, fans can
expect to see a much faster
and diverse offense than
the one they saw this past
Saturday.
THE BEST 11 PLAYERS
WILL PLAY
The best 11 isnt a new way
to coach, and its often times
played up to be more than it
is, but Beaty seems genuine
about this best 11 format. On
Saturday, we got a glimpse of
that with the wide receivers,

as senior Tre Parmalee, who


features mostly as a slot wide
receiver, lined up all over
the field. Six-foot-five junior
tight end Kent Taylor lined
up outside for his 85-yardtouchdown catch late in the
fourth quarter.
Were going to find our best
11 guys, Beaty said. If youre
one of those, youre not going
to be standing by me. We will
not hesitate to move you and
put you in another spot. At
wide receiver, we will play our
best four. We wont tab you as
an X or a Z or a Y or a H.
CUMMINGS INJURED
The
most
devastating
situation to come out of the
spring game was Cummings
left knee injury. He took
a shot from senior safety
Michael Glatczak, although
there is a no-contact rule for
quarterbacks during spring
football. After getting his
knee wrapped on the sideline,
Cummings was able to limp
to the locker room. Beaty
didnt have an update yet, but
said he was being evaluated
by the medical staff.
The hit from Glatczak was
inexcusable. He dove into
Cummings and landed right
at his knee. Even on first look,
it wasnt good.
They know theyre not
supposed to touch those
guys, Beaty said. When
they do, they get a mouthful
from every coach on our staff,

not just me. [Coach] Clint


Bowen, he is a raging lunatic
at practice if you get close to
that quarterback, because he
understands that that guy
is the key to the movement
of this football team a lot of
times.
Cummings told Beaty he
thought it was an accident,
telling him Glatczak "didnt
mean to do it," and "he got
pushed into me." Cummings
also told Beaty he was OK.
Cozart
finished
the
remainder of the game for the
blue team, finishing with 219
yards and two touchdowns.
Eighty-five of those yards
came off a late mishap from
the defense junior tight
end Kent Taylors receiving
touchdown.
BATES HAS A FIELD DAY
Transfer junior safety Bazie
Bates IV was the standout on
the defensive end for either
team. He led all defenders
with seven total tackles and
was a constant force inside
the box. Beaty has had his eye
on the Texas native for years
and initially tried recruiting
him to Texas A&M while he
was coaching there.
He comes downhill, and he
will hit you, Beaty said. He
can get you on the ground. He
runs all over that field, and he
will strike you. We think that
he could be a really good
player for us.
Of course, Bates has a long

way to go to jump junior


safety Fish Smithson on the
depth chart. But hes making
plenty of progress and
quickly. Saturday was a good
indication of how well hes
fitting into this defense and
the changes at the Division I
level.
INDEFINITELY SUSPENDED:
COLEMAN AND AVERY
Upcoming senior wide
receiver Rodriguez Coleman
and sophomore running
back Corey Avery werent in
uniform for Kansas game,
and Beaty told media exactly
why after the game.
There are a couple guys
who are suspended for
violating team rules, Beaty
said. Rodriguez Coleman is
one of those guys, and Corey
Avery is another one. Their
futures are uncertain.
Beaty added that both
are indefinitely suspended.
Coleman was expected to
be a starting receiver for the
Jayhawks this season after the
team lost a hoist of guys to
the NFL draft. Avery led the
team in rushes and rushing
yards in 2014, and was also
expected to compete for the
starting position with plenty
of depth.
Beyond violating team
rules, nothing is known about
the two suspensions at this
time.

scorers of all time. Langford
was a sharp-shooting lefty at
the shooting guard position and
averaged double-digit scoring
in his final three seasons. As a
sophomore, Langford earned
a spot on the NCAA All-Final
Four team and was a Wooden

Kansas baseball unable to complete WVU sweep


WESLEY DOTSON
@WesleyDee23

In Sundays series finale


against the West Virginia
Mountaineers, the Kansas
Jayhawks were unable to
complete the sweep, falling
5-4 in Morgantown, W.V.
For the second consecutive
game, the Jayhawks were
able to produce another
scoring outburst all in one
inning.
In the top of the second,
the Jayhawks got on the
board first when junior Ryan
Pidhaichuk walked with the
bases loaded, which brought
in
sophomore
Michael
Tinsley.

Another walk by junior


Tommy Mirabelli would
force in senior outfielder
Dakota Smith and make it
2-0, Kansas. Senior Justin
Protacio would then deliver
an RBI-single to make it 3-0.
The next batter, senior
Connor McKay, smacked a
single back up the middle
that would allow sophomore
Joven Afenir to score.
In the second inning,
Kansas delivered a four-spot,
which would turn out to be
the only runs it would score
in the contest.
In the bottom of the
second, West Virginias
Shaun Wood would cut the
lead in half with his two-run

home run.
Shortstop Taylor Munden
later singled in the inning to
score Caleb Potter and cut
the Jayhawks lead to one.
Kansas sophomore starter
Sean Rackoski escaped the
Mountaineer threat when
he struck out Justin Fox.
This was Rackoskis fourth
strikeout, and the Jayhawks
retained the lead, 4-3.
Rackoski settled in for the
remainder of his start. He
wound up striking out seven
batters in five innings, while
allowing seven hits and three
earned runs.
After freshman Blake
Weiman came in for
Rackoski, the lefty had a

strong sixth inning of work,


but he gave up the go-ahead
two-run blast to Munden in
the bottom of the seventh
inning that made the score
5-4, West Virginia.
He [Weiman] did a really
good job today, but their best
player [Munden] put a good
swing on the ball and he
didnt miss it, coach Ritch
Price said after the loss.
Weiman finished with
three innings of work,
allowing two hits one
of them the game-winning
home run and he was
tagged with his seventh loss
of the season.
Despite the loss, the
Jayhawks still went on the

road and captured a huge


Big 12 series victory this
weekend (3-1, 9-5, 4-5).
They have now improved
their Big 12 record to 6-9 as
a result of the series win.
On Friday, the Jayhawks
cruised to a 3-1 victory
behind the arm of junior
lefty Ben Krauth. Krauth
improved to 6-3 on the
season thanks in large part
to his eight strikeouts.
A sacrifice fly by Afenir in
the top of the fifth inning
would score Mirabelli and
tie the game, 1-1.
