Company showcases talent in fall recital

aarchibald@kansan.com The soft, pattering sounds of bare feet and well-worn dance shoes from backstage freeze. The light slowly illuminates the auditorium. Then, as music begins to pour from the speakers, the dancers glide into view. Tonight at 7:30, the University Dance Company will perform the second night of its annual fall concert, featuring the work of worldrenowned guest choreographer Bill Evans. Jerel Hilding, associate professor and chair of the dance department and one of the shows five choreographers, said the choreographers have been able to tie all of the dances together with fantastic elements. This year, Evans, who Hilding said was one of the top tap dancers in the country, visited the University at the beginning of October to choreograph Jukebox, the shows closing number. Hilding said it brought the fantasy of Hollywood to the stage.


A caterpillars guide to the galaxy

jleverett@kansan.com Three monarch caterpillars bred at the University were on board the space shuttle Atlantis as it lifted off from Kennedy Space Center earlier this week. They were the first of their species to voyage into space. Chip Taylor, associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, traveled to Florida to deliver the three caterpillars to NASA and watch the shuttle take off. Taylor is the director of Monarch Watch, a group of students, professors and volunteers dedicated to the study of monarch butterflies. Taylor said the goal of sending the caterpillars into space was to test the effects of zero gravity on their development. He said he wanted to test if caterpillars were still capable o f developing normally and emerging as butterflies, even in a low-gravity environment. The opportunity to involve elementary schools across the country with the project, he said, was too good to pass up. Taylor sent a request to schools to purchase caterpillars to observe along with the caterpillars in space. He said he expected only twenty schools to be interested in the program, but when he sent the request, he received 870 responses. Jackie Getz, a volunteer for Monarch Watch, said she was impressed with the number of schools who showed interest in participating in the program. They had such an overwhelming response that they came up with plan B They would let everybody do the parallel experiment. In eight days, Monarch Watch volunteers packed caterpillar kits and shipped them overnight to 425 of the 870 elementary schools that responded. Taylor and his volunteers devoted the last two weeks to packing and delivering caterpillars. He called it a monumental effort. He said the spectacle of the lift-off took his mind off caterpillars for the first time in weeks. You think of this, and the power that goes into this, and, I tell you, I wasnt thinking about those caterpillars, he said. I was thinking about that crew. Sam Pippert, Baldwin City junior, said he took care of the Monarch Watchs stock of butterflies and packed caterpillars into plastic cups with the pale green artificial diet Taylor had developed. He said he couldnt predict how the caterpillars would react to life in zero-gravity. T h e y werent even sure they made it through the launch, he said. Its all cutting edge. Mon arch Watch worked on the project in conjunction with BioServe, a research center based in Boulder, Colo. The shuttle docked with the International Space Station on Wednesday. follow Justin leverett at twitter.com/ schmendric.

Ruling vindicates victims

associated Press
NEW ORLEANS A landmark court ruling blaming the Army Corps of Engineers monumental negligence for some of the worst flooding from Hurricane Katrina could lead to a new deluge: billions of dollars in legal action from thousands of storm victims. The federal judges harshly worded decision also served as vindication for residents of St. Bernard Parish and the Lower 9th Ward in New Orleans who have long argued that Katrina was largely a manmade disaster, caused by the federal governments failure to maintain the levees protecting the city. Finally, somebody has said the truth, said Catherine Serpas, 67, whose family runs a bicycle and lawnmower store in Chalmette, La. She said the Army Corps work on a 76-mile channel called the Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet destroyed the family life we knew. St. Bernard will never be what it used to be. New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin told CNN the ruling would open the floodgates for people in the Lower 9th Ward to seek proper compensation. If this is allowed to stand, I think you will see a multitude of lawsuits, the City of New Orleans included, Nagin said.


Students party and potty in lake in pregame ritual

COLUMBUS, Ohio Intrepid Ohio State University researchers have learned students dont just party in a campus lake during rituals before the annual Michigan game. They also potty there. Thousands of students jumped into Ohio States Mirror Lake Thursday night, ahead of Saturdays football game between the Buckeyes and Wolverines. Before, during and after last years big swim, the College of Earth Sciences monitored the water quality. Postdoctoral research associate Steve Goldsmith said the ammonia level surged. He said that likely means one thing: urine.

Residents wait on a rooftop to be rescued from the floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans on Sept 1., 2005. The federal government could be vulnerable to billions of dollars in claims after a judge ruled that the Army Corps of Engineers failure to properly maintain a navigation channel led to massive flooding in Hurricane Katrina. A Corps of Engineers spokesman said the agency and the Justice Department were reviewing the ruling and would not comment because issues in the case were still subject to litigation. On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval ruled that the corps shoddy oversight of the channel southeast of New Orleans caused much of the flooding of St. Bernard Parish and the Lower 9th Ward, two of the hardest-hit areas after Katrina. The decision opens the door to billions of dollars in other claims by more than 100,000 individuals, businesses and even government entities that have pending damage claims against the corps. Duval awarded $720,000 in property damages to four individuals and one business. Storm victims said they were eager for the government to pay up.

DANCe (continued from 1A)
Hilding, now in his 20th year with the dance company, said Jukebox was a humorous poke at music and dance forms of the 1940s. It includes dances such as the jitterbug and songs originally recorded by Glenn Miller and his Orchestra. He has a really good way of making it so that every dancer can grasp the movements, said Kendra Brown, Belleville senior and UDC president. This is the second time Evans has been a guest choreographer for the University. The first was Spring 2008 when he choreographed a modern dance piece called Celebrations for Elizabeth, which was dedicated to the 100th birthday of his late friend and founder of the University Dance Department, Elizabeth Sherbon. Hilding said that in Jukebox, Evans gave each dancer a 1940s personality, such as Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers. Bill has a wonderful background in all forms of dance, Hilding said. Hes like a walking history book in a way. Its wonderful thing for students to have. Students in UDC agree his background has helped them develop their dance skills. For him to have all these experiences and have been so many places and then to come to a place like KU is a really great opportunity for us, said Stephanie Taylor, Lenexa senior and marketing director for UDC. Theyre normally pretty hard on us at rehearsal, I mean its a tough industry but he really encouraged us to do well and push forward. In addition to having Evans as a guest this semester, the show is the dance departments first company concert after its split from the music department. I think everyone is really excited about this. Its our first performance as our own department, Brown said. The community and students have been really supportive of the changes this year. This year, Hilding said there were more dancers than usual, with 30 student dancers and five

Theatre popcorn has high fat levels Poor economy leads

educAtion AssociAted Press
ALBANY, N.Y. Forget the apocalyptic earthquakes and alien abductions on the screen, the real movie horror is the fat-saturated popcorn sold by some theater chains, a nutrition advocacy group claims. Just one popcorn-and-soda combo can match the calorieand-saturated-fat count of three McDonalds Quarter Pounders and 12 pats of butter, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interests review of popcorn sold at three national movie chains. A lot of people think theyre better off at the popcorn counter than at the candy counter, when in fact youre not in good shape if you go to either, said Jayne Hurley, nutritionist for the Washingtonbased group. The popcorn has staggering amounts of saturated fats. Hurley blamed the high saturated fat count on the coconut oil used to pop the corn at theaters run by Regal Entertainment Group and AMC Entertainment Inc., which have a combined 852 theaters. Regal and AMC both said they tested healthier alternatives after a similar 1994 analysis by CSPI, but they were unpopular with customers. Both chains said they offer a range of food options, some healthier than others.


choreographers. Its bittersweet, Brown said. The ability to perform and share your feelings, emotions and passion with the audience is awesome, but all the pieces weve put sweat and hours of work into are almost over. The show features numerous genres of dance, including bolero, hip-hop, rhumba, flamenco, ballet, modern, jazz and tap. I think it will be a really accessible show, Hilding said. Students and people of all ages will find something entertaining in it. Follow Anna Archibald at twitter.com/archmonarch. Edited by Lauren Cunningham

survey (continued from 1A)

said programs like Safe Ride and bringing anti-alcohol speakers to campus have not been found to reduce high-risk drinking. Now if you are bringing campus speakers for entertainment, fine by me, Busteed said. But if youre bringing campus speakers with the idea thats a plan to reduce high-risk drinking on campus, there currently is nothing to support that. Emily Williams, Overland Park graduate student and member of the alcohol task force, said she thought it was good that an organization looked at the data of the effectiveness of programs. When it comes to working with students, its kind of a fluid environment, Williams said. Its a trial and error process. Marlesa Roney, vice provost for student success and chairwoman of the alcohol task force, said she wanted to get the data to the community to show that more underage students are drinking at bars than at other places. That might help begin to talk more and more about what can we do to reduce the lack of carding, Roney said. If we could begin cracking down on that, that could really help us out. On Wednesday nights no vote in the alcohol subcommittee of the student rights standing committee in Student Senate on a policy that would allow senior staff members in Student Housing easier access to rooms if they suspected alcohol policy violations, Roney said students on both sides of the issue did a good job in laying out their arguments and responding to questions. The professionalism and the thorough way the issues were handled continues to speak very well on all of our students in the process, Roney said. I dont think its the end of the conversation, because its a very important conversation. Follow Jesse Rangel at twitter.com/igglephile. Edited by Samantha Foster

Huggard-Lee also noted she was under the impression that if closer accessible parking was to be provided in the future, it may cost more money. However, no concrete plans were brought up or discussed at the hearing. The University has approximately 14,698 total parking spaces, with approximately 390 of them being accessible for physically disabled students and faculty members. Even if this number does not increase, parking spots closer to buildings should be provided. Individuals in need of better accessible parking deserve the correct accommodations needed to enhance their experience at the University. Parking and transit should listen to the needs of the student body, and ask for recommendations from AbleHawks and Allies. The University promotes diversity, and should stand behind this.

Despite the many intellectuals, the position maintained by the public that of a strong government health insurance plan like single-payer, Medicare for all, or a robust public option paying Medicare rates is always notably absent. For evidence that a strong public option is all that is needed to reduce costs, one need only to read the letter to the Senate by the presidents of Americas Health Insurance Plans and the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, which stated that a government plan would have built-in advantages that would allow it to take over the health insurance market because of its inherent efficiencies. In light of Americas existing democracy where its no secret that a special interest group can kill even moderate health care reform despite, and with no regard to, the preferences of the American public its no surprise that authentic health care reform is not being proposed. The reason is quite obvious: It doesnt reflect the interests of the Washingtons real constituents. The cost inefficiencies are no accident. Negotiations behind closed doors despite campaign promises between the Obama administration and industry representatives, through the Senate Finance Committee, reflect the relations of power. The pharmaceutical and hospital industries made deals with the administration to limit their cost reductions to $80 and $155 billion, respectively, during the next 10 years. In addition, details of the PhRMA deal have been leaked. The contents of the leak outline the dictations of the

pharmaceutical industry. The White House would oppose any legislative effort to repeal a generous rebate awarded during a Republican Congress, oppose importation of cheaper drugs, oppose repeal of the law disallowing negotiated drug prices, oppose moving infusion drugs to Medicare D where they would get paid less and impose the above mentioned cost reduction limit. Then the reform would be suitable, nay, even beneficial. Change that we can believe in is possible. A good solution sits idly in a room filled with grandiose debate. But it doesnt seem as if the proper way forward can be paved without the resolution of our current democratic crisis, where the affairs of the country ought to be directed to protect the minority of the opulent against the majority, as James Madison once said. Until we can improve upon our state of democracy, politics will stay, in the words of John Dewey, the shadow cast on society by big business. Its also worth keeping in mind that real change is not granted from above, but rather comes from organized popular pressure, much of which has been student-led in recent decades. To take one recent example, the United Students Against Sweatshops recently forced apparel company Russel to rehire Honduras workers who had been fired for organizing into a union. This, however, did not happen overnight; rather, it resulted from 10 years of building a movement. As Bill Moyers would say, dont just get mad. Get busy.

Pro-choice protection
Recently adopted by the House of Representatives, the Stupak-Pitts Amendment makes it virtually impossible for private insurance companies that would participate in the new health care system to offer abortion coverage to women, even though more than 85 percent of private insurance plans cover abortion services. The Stupak-Pitts Amendment forbids any plan offering abortion coverage in the new system from accepting even one subsidized customer. Because more than 80 percent of the participants in the exchange will be subsidized, it seems certain all health plans will seek and accept these individuals. In other words, the StupakPitts Amendment forces plans in the exchange to make a difficult choice: either offer their product to 80 percent of consumers in the marketplace or offer abortion services in their benefits package, according to a press release from NARAL Pro-Choice America. It seems clear which choice they will make. Stupak supporters claim women who require subsidies to help pay for their insurance plan will have abortion access through the option of purchasing a rider, a false promise. In the five states that require a separate rider for abortion coverage, there is no evidence plans offer these riders, according to the National Womens Law Center. Nothing in this amendment would ensure rider policies are available or affordable to the more than 80 percent of individuals who will receive federal subsidies in order to help purchase coverage in the new exchange. But its not too late. Something can be done to stop this amendment from becoming a part of health care reform. Join the Commission on the Status of Women at the University in calling Rep.

n a column last week (Republicans gain momentum with recent wins), Chet Compton hailed the recent election of Republican governors in New Jersey and Virginia as a prelude to a sweeping victory for his party in next years midterm elections. He would like to believe that the young, well-spoken presidents victory was a fluke, an aberration, the result of misplaced hope that is quickly fading. The story he tells is a familiar one. If only it were 1993. While reading Comptons column, I was reminded of something Sen. Pat Moynihan (D-New York) once said: Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. In this case, the facts dont seem to support the proposition that Republican gubernatorial victories signal any substantial shift in the voters view of the Obama administration. Nor do they represent any kind of dramatic realignment like we saw in 1994. The results do tell us a lot about the issues voters care about in Virginia and New Jersey: the economy and taxes. Using off-year elections to make this kind of prediction is much like auguring the future fortunes of the polity by studying the flight of birds. (The Romans actually did this, and elections could be rendered invalid by inaugural error.) It may mean a lot for the birds, but not much for 2010. For those of you who havent kept up on recent political

dan thompson
hostilities, Ill reprise the latest election results. In Virginias gubernatorial election, Republican Bob McDonald defeated Democrat Cree Deeds, and in New Jersey, incumbent governor Jon Corzine, a Democrat, was unseated by Republican Chris Christie. When voters in Virginia and New Jersey were asked if they were voting to express their opinion about President Barack Obama, clear majorities in both states said it was not part of the decision, according to exit polls reported by ABC. Among those who did say that was an important factor, the majority claimed that they supported the president. These races were decided upon local issues, and in both cases, the Republicans had the better candidate and ran the better campaign. In Virginia, Cree Deeds bid for the governorship seemed to solely consist of attacking Republican Bob McDonald as a right-wing ideologue based upon a thesis he wrote two decades ago in graduate school. Contrary to Deeds negative, one-dimensional campaign, McDonald emphasized

a positive message based upon improving infrastructure and the economy. Meanwhile, in New Jersey, Governor Corzine, former CEO of Goldman Sachs, was extraordinarily unpopular going into the race. The only way he stood any chance at all of re-election was by running an especially negative campaign, which, among other things, featured an ad hinting that his overweight opponent threw his weight around to get special favors. Christie, a former federal prosecutor, ran an effective campaign highlighting the states property tax rate the highest in the nation and its poor economy. In the last five gubernatorial elections, New Jersey and Virginia have always voted for the same party, and always for the party that is not in control of the White House. In 1997, the last time Republicans won the governorships in those two states, the Democrats picked up five House of Representative seats the following year. Many conservative pundits, including Compton, have divined a connection between these races and an impending realignment in national politics, but I think the facts speak for themselves. This election was anything but extraordinary. Thompson is a Topeka senior in economics.

Customs finds bongs disguised as ornaments


Los aNGeLes Customs officials say they got a surprise when they found 316,000 glass bongs disguised as Christmas ornaments at the Los angeles harbor. U.s. Customs and Border Protection said Thursday that agents found the highly decorated drug pipes in 860 boxes shipped from China. The cargo, estimated to be worth more than $2.6 million, had been described as glass figures and Christmas ornaments. The bongs were seized Tuesday at the Los angeles/Long Beach port complex. Customs spokeswoman Cristina Gamez said the importer remained under investigation and there have been no arrests. she says it is illegal to import or export drug paraphernalia.

Taylor does not live up to hype of preseason

mrothman@kansan.com here, oh, where has my No. 10 been? In a year where No. 1 Kansas still seems too good to be true (although tempered a tad by Memphis), the recalcitrant playmaker with NBA potential has been, well, a dud. This year sophomore guard Tyshawn Taylor swapped his jersey number from 15 to 10. Ever since that change, the once sparkling jewel has withered and decayed. In the season opener, a 101-65 slaughtering of Hofstra, Taylor had a quietly productive night, leading the team with six assists and tagging on eight points. However the feisty guards definitive number three option label in last years offense had never been so glaringly slung into the past as it was that night. As Taylor did his part with 24 minutes of play, freshman guard Xavier Henry hoarded a gleaming national spotlight, scoring 27 points off of endless threepointers and thunderous slams. It was a booming proclamation that we might not see Taylor reach the hype that once followed him in high school. Preceding his days in Lawrence, Taylor was the hero at St. Anthony High School in Jersey City, N.J. He had all the credentials you could name. Awards? Hudson County 2008 Player of the Year and USA Todays fictitious national championship. Legendary coach? Had that too. Bobby Hurley Sr. Dream-like last hurrah? Yes, even that too. In his senior year, Taylor led his school to a 32-0 record and claimed the 2008 Tournament of Champions. After proving to be one of the most dynamic freshman in the nation and earning Freshman All-America Third Team honors, it seemed as if Taylor would only shine even brighter in his sophomore campaign and function as the eventual successor to Collins. His inconsistent yet still highly promising year seemed to be nothing but the next chapter in the life of a future NBA stud. Oh, how things can change. When spelling a cramp-ridden Collins against Memphis, Taylor looked like a cat near water. He never found anything close to a comfort zone in the Scottrade Center, finishing 0-4 from the field with seven turnovers and only two free throws to show. While Taylor would like to put up 30 points on any given night, that is simply not what is best for this talent heavy team. He is clearly struggling with this humbling realization as he clunks shot after shot. And the rapid development of freshman guard Elijah Johnson, who ironically snagged Taylors former No. 15, the consistency of junior guard Tyrel Reed and the return of injury free freshman guard C.J. Henry can do nothing but decrease Taylors minutes on

Jayhawks send Bears packing

Collins, Henry, Morris, Reed come out on top in points
cthibodeaux@kansan.com C.J. Henry hasnt played a real game of competitive basketball in four years. It was hard to tell Thursday night. Coming in with just over two minutes to go in the first half, Henry scored eight points in his first action as a Jayhawk in a 94-44 victory against Central Arkansas. His last action in competitive basketball before Thursday came in 2005 when his high school basketball team lost in the playoffs. I told coach I wanted to try my knee out tonight because it felt pretty good leading up to the game, Henry said. And when he told me he wanted me to come in, I was excited. Henry said his knee was at 80 percent before the game and that it felt pretty good after the game. Kansas coach Bill Self said Henrys movement looked good and enjoyed seeing him on the court. It was good to see him get a couple down, Self said. Hes a good shooter. His teammates were happy to finally see him in action as well. I was very happy that he got out there, junior guard Tyrel Reed said.

Manginos reputation is damaged

elcome aboard the RMS Titanic! No, Im not talking about the one that sank on April 15, 1912. Im talking about the one thats currently sinking under Captain Mark Mangino. The once seemingly unsinkable Kansas football team was cruising along for several weeks. A mere 34 days after the Jayhawks were ranked 15th in the USA Today poll, they lost to the Nebraska Cornhuskers and most likely their chance to go to a bowl game. After the Nebraska game, I was not ready to suggest firing Mangino, but I was close. Considering what he had done for this program, I was willing to give him at least another year to prove he could turn this team around. However, after Lew Perkins announced that there would be an internal review of the football program this week, it is now fair to question Manginos job security. There are current and former players coming forward and making accusations against the head coach. Perkins was left with little choice and had to look into it. The big thing here is that Perkins could have kept this investigation quiet, but he didnt. He

chose to come out and announce it publicly. Hes sending a message. Mangino hinted at that message during his press conference Tuesday when he said that hes lost the support of some people around here. Subsequently, things have begun to unravel around Mangino. His reputation has been so badly damaged by this debacle that recruiting may take a hit. An article by ESPNs Joe Schad reported that as many as five former players are beginning to speak out against Manginos verbal abuse. Former Kansas wide receiver Raymond Brown came forward. Brown, whose brother was shot in the arm while in St. Louis, told Schad, I dropped a pass and [Mangino] was mad. And I said, Yes, sir. Yes, sir. The yelling didnt bother me. But then he said, Shut up! He said, If you dont shut up, Im going to send you back to St.

Louis so you can get shot with your homies. Brown also told Schad that another player had let it be known that he had dreams of becoming a lawyer and that his father was an alcoholic. One day, [Mangino] said in front of the entire team, Are you going to be a lawyer or do you want to become an alcoholic like your Dad? Brown revealed to Schad. F o r m e r Kansas wide receiver Marcus Herford told Schad, Hed say things like, Ill Mangino send you back to the street corner where you came from. ESPN also reported that some players were threatening to transfer because they felt they had been spoken to in a disrespectful manner.

problematic. Dont get me wrong. Mangino has done a lot for this school. He has taken Kansas football and turned it into a respectable program around the country. While I am thankful for that, I do not believe he is the coach that will take this program from where weve been the last couple years to the next level. Even after resurrecting the Kansas football program and being named coach of the year in 2007, no big time program came in to try and steal him away.

Nebraskas Lee regains swagger after benching

associated Press
LINCOLN, Neb. When Nebraskas Zac Lee was benched for a game and the first quarter of another, he soothed himself by remembering the words of an old pro he knows. My dad told me when I first started playing quarterback that youre not a true quarterback until youre run out of at least one place, Lee said. So taking that to heart, and really hearing that for as long as Ive heard that, its just part of the deal. You have to be prepared for it. Lee is the son of Bob Lee, who played for three teams in a 12-year NFL career. The young Lee has rebounded quite nicely since re-establishing his grip on the job after losing it briefly to freshman Cody Green. Offensive coordinator Shawn Watson has put in some new wrinkles to tailor the system to Lees strengths. All signs point to the junior keeping the job the rest of the way. Lee will lead the Huskers (7-3, 4-2 Big 12) on Saturday as they play for the Big 12 North title against Kansas State (6-5, 4-3). Zac had a chance to sit back and evaluate the situation he was in, Watson said. He wanted to play. Given his opportunity, he

came back and grasped what weve been trying to get him to grasp. Its just managing the game of football. Start there and grow from there. Hes done a nice job the last two games of just managing wins. Watson kept things simple after Lee took over for Green in the second quarter against Oklahoma two weeks ago. Lee essentially handed off the ball to Roy Helu Jr. and mixed in a handful of passes. The defense did the rest in a 10-3 victory. Helu was the focus again in last weeks 31-17 win at Kansas, but Lee ran nine times for 59 yards and passed for 196 yards. Lee brought back memories of the Nebraska offenses of the 1980s and 90s by throwing play-action passes off the triple-option look. Coach Bo Pelini said Lees confidence was shaken in October, with fans and critics calling for Green. The negativity and controversy, that will affect anybody, Pelini said. The coach said he saw Lees swagger return against the Jayhawks. With the tweaked offense, Lee said, his choices are limited in the passing game, and thats a good thing. If his first or second reads are not open, he can take off running.

Three current Jayhawks have agreed to play summer ball in Washington with the Walla Walla Sweets, the team announced Wednesday. The Sweets, an expansion team in the West Coast League, have signed sophomore James Stanfield along with freshmen Jordan Dreiling and Kevin Kuntz for what will be the Sweets inaugural season. That is where we are going to start, I am confident that these three James, Jordan and Kevin will be a good step in that direction, Walla Walla Sweets general manager Zachery Fraser said in a press release. They come highly recommended from a program that has quickly become one of the elite programs in a top conference. Stanfield, an Owasso, Okla., native, played in 23 games as a freshman, turning in a .250 batting average with a double and 13 RBIs. He was primarily used as a utility infielder during the 2009 campaign. Both Kuntz, an infielder from Overland Park, and Dreiling, a Lawrence infielder who was a redshirt last season, will take their first swings at the collegiate level when the Jayhawks open up play this spring.

CHARLESTON, S.C. Dwayne Collins had 23 points and 14 rebounds as Miami overpowered Tulane 74-54 Thursday in the first round of the Charleston Classic. Collins made all eight of his shots from the field, and eight of his rebounds came on the offensive end. He played like a man today, Miami coach Frank Haith said. It was a really good effort. We shared the ball, had 19 assists, and I thought our defense exerted itself in the second half, and we got on the offensive glass. Collins was miffed that he made only seven of 12 foul shots. I was disappointed I didnt shoot better from the free throw line, the power forward said. Other than that, I guess Ill take it. I thought we played well as a team, especially on defense. The Hurricanes (3-0) broke away early in the second half with a 19-4 run. They advanced to play the Penn State-UNC Wilmington winner. Miami held Tulane to 20 points in the second half, limiting the Green Wave to 30 percent shooting. Kris Richard scored 13 points for Tulane (0-2).

ABC. Going against Texas live on TV, Im pretty sure everyone is going to see that. Its a chance to go out there and showcase how good you are. Mangino said Tuesday that he hadnt lost the support from his team, and he re-emphasized that message Wednesday. It was a point the Jayhawks highlighted this week. Its going in a positive direction, regardless of what negativity is going on in the past with losses, Stuckey said. We still want to go out there and win and play every game. Follow Jayson Jenks at twitter.com/JaysonJenks. Edited by Megan Morriss Coach Mark Mangino responded to allegations on his weekly radio show that he verbally and, in one case, physically abused players. After Athletics Director Lew Perkins released a statement early in the week revealing an internal investigation would take place, former players have come forward with allegations against Mangino. For the third time this week, Mangino addressed the issue. This time, he did so through his weekly radio show, Hawk Talk with Mark Mangino on 610 AM. Weve improved graduation rates for football, Mangino said on the radio show. We have semester records since theyve been keeping them for team

Mangino has come under fire this week as former players have continued to release stories that allege the coach used less-thanappropriate tactics to get his point across. Thursday evening, though, the coach once again discussed the issue without delving into specifics. He also spoke of Kansas success stories, naming former players such as Brandon McAnderson, Nick Reid and Charles Gordon as examples. I cant do the work of parents and what they should have done before they got to me, Mangino said on his show. Some of those guys are bitter and some thats the problem. I cant do anything about that.

There are some things for 18 years that happened in their lives that I cant change in four years of college. Cant do it. Cant change their behaviors. Cant change their attitudes. In his radio show, Mangino described those reports as embellished, while continuing to stand by his style of coaching. I think there are people embarrassing this program just for their 15 minutes of fame, Mangino said. Associate Athletic Director Jim Marchiony confirmed Thursday night that Mangino will travel and coach the team against Texas tomorrow night. Nothing will be decided until the review is finished, Marchiony said.

michigan may be intense opponent despite low record

mrothman@kansan.com Crash the boards and you just might set off the ticking time bomb that is Kevin Borseth. Borseth, Michigans head coach, struck YouTube gold a few years back at a postgame press conference following a tough loss to rival Wisconsin. The animated skipper hurled his clip board at the podium and proceeded to irately rant about his teams lack of effort on offensive rebounding and unjust foul calls. Borseth could easily find his team in a similar debacle after this Sundays Michigan vs. No. 19 Kansas duel at 2 p.m. in Allen Fieldhouse. The Jayhawks have fiercely dominated the boards, tallying a total of 89 rebounds in their first two games. Sophomore forward Aishah Sutherland, junior center Krysten Boogaard, senior guard Danielle McCray and junior forward Nicollette Smith have served as a premier rebounding collective, helping Kansas rack up secondchance points. Defensively, the dominance in rebounding makes it that much more important for the opposition to sink their first shot. Theyre not going to get another. Senior guard Sade Morris said that solid rebounding and defense can prove to the Big Ten that Kansas is more than just a scoring team. Were the Big 12, Morris said. We can play some defense. Michigan suffered from a 1020 record last year after going a dreadful 3-15 in the Big Ten. They dropped both games to Iowa last year, a team that Kansas has beaten two consecutive years as of last Wednesday. But the revitalized Wolverines (3-0) shouldnt be counted out just yet. The maize and blue tote a leader with game-changing burners in junior guard Veronica Hicks. She can fearlessly drive to the hoop for a runner or juke inside and then step back for a distanced three pointer. Hicks will pose a dynamite matchup to watch as she goes head to head with electrifying freshman guard Angel Goodrich. Michigans freshman guard Dayeesha Hollins has already lived up to the preseason hype, after posting 17 points in a victory last Monday over Marquette and then 18 more in last nights win over Southern Miss. Sophomore forward Carmen Reynolds, who scored 19 in the season opener against Ball State, has provided Borseth with a much needed boost in the paint. Senior center Krista Phillips stands at 6-foot-6 and will be the greatest rebounding threat to Boogaard and Sutherland. Both leagues have size, coach Bonnie Henrickson said when comparing the Big Ten to the Big 12. If history bodes well, Kansas should roll on Sunday as it owns the paint with size and skill. Watch your head, because clipboards could be flying once more. A lot of it is just doing the little things, senior guard Kelly Kohn said. You have to make sure that youre staying in the game for 40 minutes. Follow Max Rothman at www. twitter.com/maxrothman. Edited by Abbey Strusz

freshman guard angel Goodrich pulls up for a jump shot during the Jayhawks' game against Oral Roberts Sunday. Kansas, ranked 19th in the country, will face Michigan at 2 p.m. Sunday at Allen Fieldhouse.

Consistent offense

Key to the gaMe:

In the No. 19 Kansas Jayhawks game against the Iowa Hawkeyes, the team was plagued with several lengthy scoring droughts, especially in the first half. On two separate occasions the Jayhawks went nearly four minutes of game time without scoring any points. While Kansas used a strong offensive second half to get the victory in Iowa

City, inconsistent scoring like that could allow the Michigan Wolverines to stay in the game. The Jayhawks need to find a way to keep their rhythm going for the whole game and take advantage of the home court the team will have this Sunday.

angel Goodrich

Keep an eye on:

Redshirt freshman guard Angel Goodrich played an

impressive second half against the Hawkeyes last Wednesday. After a disappointing first half where she did not make a shot, Goodrich changed her game up a Goodrich little and started driving the basket. The adjustment

allowed her to sink five baskets on her way to 10 second half points. The ability and willingness to score is an aspect of Goodrichs game that was not present in the Jayhawks two exhibition games, but has presented itself in both regular season games. Goodrich should be able to continue this promising trend against the Wolverines on Sunday.

Dayeesha Hollins

opponent to watch:

Michigan freshman guard Dayeesha Hollins has scored a total of 29 points in Michigans two games against Ball State and Marquette. She is the Wolverines second leading scorer, one point behind sophomore forward Carmen Reynolds. The Jayhawks continued to

struggle at defending talented point guards in their victory against the Hawkeyes. Iowas junior guard Kachine Alexander torched the Jayhawks for 23 points. If the Jayhawks defense does not find a way to clamp down, Hollins could easily have a very productive game.

Dolphins hold off Panthers for victory

Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. Ricky Williams is 32 and far from done. And even without Ronnie Brown, the once written-off Miami Dolphins are back in the playoff picture. Williams rushed for 119 yards and scored three touchdowns, and the Dolphins beat the Carolina Panthers 24-17 on Thursday night for their fourth win in six games. A day after learning Brown is lost for the season, the Dolphins (5-5) continued their surge after an 0-3 start behind Williams. The 2002 NFL rushing champion had a receiving and rushing touchdown in the same game for the first time in his career that includes a couple of lost seasons. Dolphins coach Tony Sparano Coach always talks about finishing, Williams said. Sometimes hinted his team might abandon in this league, in a physical game, the wildcat without Brown, who its difficult to finish.

Jayhawks' victory boasts few turnovers, better offense overall

ataylor@kansan.com For a brief moment in the No. 1 Kansas Jayhawks game against the Central Arkansas Bears it seemed as though a story similar to Kansas game against the Memphis Tigers might unfold before the eyes of the faithful in Allen Fieldhouse. In the Jayhawks 57-55 victory over the Tigers on Tuesday the Jayhawks had an astounding 21 turnovers compared to meager 20 field goals. After a rocky and eerily similar start against Central Arkansas, Kansas turned things around en route to a 94-44 victory. We took better care of the basketball, coach Bill Self said. Thats a positive after pitching it all over the building Tuesday. In the first two minutes of play against the Bears, the Jayhawks had already committed two turnovers, both by junior center Cole Aldrich, and had not even attempted a field goal, much less made one. Then with 18 minutes left in the half sophomore forward Marcus Morris, making his first start of the season, sank a jumper from outside the paint to give Kansas its first points of the game. After that Kansas never looked back. Aldrichs two turnovers served as the Jayhawks only giveaways until Marcus Morris lost the ball with four seconds remaining in the half. That turnover led to a Central Arkansas basket that simply cut what would have been a 24-point halftime lead to a still daunting 22-point lead that the Bears never even came close to recovering from. When the final buzzer sounded, Kansas had only turned the ball over especially evident when comparing a total of seven times.

continued to showcase a much stronger defense than they had in their two exhibition games. A huge factor in the continuation of that trend against Central Arkansas revolved around Kansas ability to force turnovers.

I knew that they were going to come out even tougher after they struggled against Memphis, Central Arkansas senior guard Mike Pouncy said. I knew that their coach was going to get on them and they were going to pressure us even more. Follow Andrew Taylor at twitter.com/Andrew_Taylor 11. Edited by Samantha Foster

Game to remember
This was Henrys first action in four years since his high school team lost in the semis of the state tournament. He missed his first three-point attempt, a shot he didnt want to take on a play he was called for. in the second half, he made both his three-point attempts and finished with eight points. He looked like he hadnt missed a beat. More importantly, he said his knee feels fine and he will try to earn more minutes in practice.



Stat of the night

Thats the percentage the Central Arkansas bears shot from the field last night. At times it was even worse than that for the bears as they entered half time with a paltry 15 points after earning a 19.2 field goal percentage in the opening half. After Kansas went on a 23-0 run in the first half, the bears never stood a chance as they fell to the Jayhawks 94-44.

the floor. In last nights game against Central Arkansas, Taylor was anemic. He was the only scoreless starter in the first half as he watched his teammates have a field day in their expected thrashing of the Bears. His jump shots were nothing but a tease as they bobbed and bounced around a rim that had answers for everyone but him. He was even blocked on a drive to the hoop and then abruptly replaced by Johnson. Taylor was visibly infuriated as he took his time to find a seat on the bench. Hes laboring a little bit right now, Kansas coach Bill Self said. He doesnt trust his shot as much. It was a truculent offseason for the diva-like talent, who may be NBA bound after a potentially frustrating regular season with the crimson and blue. Its still way too early to seal anyones fate, but perhaps a busted pinky and an exposed shakable ego was the beginning of the end for the old 15 turned 10. With every roll of the eyes or barely missed jump shot, we are all reminded of Taylors emphatic fall to normalcy. Along with Self and the Jayhawk nation, I pray that Taylor proves me wrong.

Kansas will need a total team effort and everyone will need to have a good game, coach Ray Bechard said. Its going to take a good effort in all phases, Bechard said. They went through a phase earlier in the year where they were still developing, but they play at tremendous tempo and are solid at all phases. The Jayhawks will try to use the urgency of the end of the season and post-season aspirations to fuel team motivation, Martincich said. When we played K-State here and Baylor here, there was definitely that urgency, Martincich said. Everyone on our team felt it, so hopefully we can bring that back and win Saturday against Nebraska.

At K-State, Missouri quits bad second-half habits

Associated Press COLUMBIA, Mo. Sean Weatherspoon was fed up with the second-half collapses. Thats why Missouris senior linebacker and captain gathered teammates around at halftime at Kansas State last week and made it clear: It wasnt going to happen again. It didnt Missouri (6-4, 2-4) beat Kansas State to end a streak of four losses in five games. A week earlier, in a stunning home loss to Baylor, the Tigers gave 24 second-half points, part of a trend of bad second halves by the Tigers. We came in the locker room during halftime and he kind of had coach blow the whistle and get everyone quiet, cornerback Kevin Rutland said of Weatherspoon. Then he said, Guys, were not having this again. Were not going to go out at halftime and slow down. Were going to keep going downhill. And guys listened and we did that. The defense kept an opponent out of the end zone for the first time this season and forced three takeaways, the second-most of the season. Meanwhile, the Missouri offense scored 21 points off those turnovers after scoring just 23 points off of 13 turnovers the previous nine games. One play that stood out for the defense was a ball that linebacker Zaviar Gooden forced out of Kansas State receiver Brandon Banks hands at the Missouri 1. The ball took a good Missouri bounce into the end zone for a touchback. From my standpoint if you do that, if you go up and down with all the stuff that happens in a game, geez, theyd have to take me away, its just too much, coach Gary Pinkel said. You create your own luck, I firmly believe that. Missouri hopes to make it two in a row Saturday with the home finale against Iowa State (6-5, 3-4).

Carolina Hurricanes Sergei Samsonov (14), from Russia, tries to score as Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Jonas Gustavsson, left, defends during the second period of an NHL hockey game in Raleigh, N.C. Thursday. Hurricanes Tuomo Ruutu (15), from Finland, and Maple Leafs Ian White (7) look on at right.

Hurricanes rally, win in overtime

BY JoedY MccreArY
Associated Press RALEIGH, N.C. Tuomo Ruutu and Jussi Jokinen scored in the shootout and the Carolina Hurricanes rallied from three goals down to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 6-5 on Thursday night. The latest meeting of the NHLs worst teams had a wild finish. Ian White put the Maple Leafs ahead 5-4 with 29.9 seconds remaining, but Erik Cole tapped in a rebound with 2.9 seconds left to force overtime. After an uneventful overtime, Ruutu and Jokinen beat Jonas Gustavsson with wrist shots and Manny Legace stopped Phil Kessel and Lee Stempniak to preserve his first victory with the Hurricanes. Gustavsson finished with 40 saves and assisted on Alexei Ponikarovskys third-period goal for Toronto, which picked up points for the first time since Nov. 7, having lost four straight in regulation since. When these teams last met two weeks ago, the Hurricanes were in the midst of their club-worsttying 14-game winless streak and lost to the Maple Leafs to claim the indignity of being the worst team in the NHL. Since then, Carolina lost two goalies to injury, including franchise cornerstone Cam Ward, and Legace was brought in to stabilize things for a while. The situation in the standings hasnt improved much for either team: Carolina entered winless in 15 of its last 16 and havent won a game in regulation since Oct. 9. The Maple Leafs came in with a lengthy slump of their own, having won only once since their previous visit to Raleigh. The teams entered with a combined record of 6-23-10, and each had 11 points four behind Anaheim. Early on, anyway, Toronto seemed determined to stop its slide, scoring 61 seconds in the quickest goal Carolina has allowed this season on its second shot of the night, then pushed its lead to 3-0 when Grabovski whipped in a rebound in the final moments of the period.

Gophers win despite missing player

Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS Freshman Rodney Williams had 17 points, six rebounds and four steals in his first career start, helping 24th-ranked Minnesota pull away from Utah Valley in the second half of a 76-51 victory on Thursday. Missing senior leader and top scorer Lawrence Westbrook to a stomach virus, the Gophers (3-0) finished 5 for 19 from 3-point range and were outrebounded 34-29 by a team in its first year as a full-fledged Division I program. Damian Johnson had 15 points, six rebounds, three blocks and two steals, though, to lead another strong defensive effort. Minnesota had 30 points off 26 Utah Valley turnovers, and five Gophers turnovers only gave the Wolverines (1-2) two points. Jordan Swarbick led Utah Valley with 11 points and Tyray Petty had eight points and nine rebounds, giving Minnesota plenty to work on before playing 11th-ranked Butler next week. The Wolverines fell behind 41-26 early in the second half when the Gophers appeared poised to run away with the game. Utah Valley didnt wilt, though, with peppy point guard Eric Dearden rushing to the rim for layups and Petty and Swarbick muscling for position underneath. ASSOCIATED PRESS Al Nolens steal and wraparound Minnesotas Colton Iverson, left, guards against a shot by Utah Valley States Kevin Woods pass to Williams for a fast-break II (5). Minnesota beat Utah Valley despite the absence of senior leading scorer Lawrence dunk over the pursuing defender Westbrook. got the crowd going a little. Five minutes later, Williams was fouled trying use the baseline for a slam and fell hard on his side. He made both free throws, though, and on his next two drives he chose layups instead as the Gophers began to exert themselves. Williams had one more dunk in him at the end of another fastbreak fueled by this active defense coach Tubby Smith pushes his teams to play. That pushed Minnesotas lead to 73-51 with 2 minutes left.

The Blue Raiders beat the Lady Tigers each of the last two seasons, including last years game in which Clark scored 37.

After an early exchange of leads, LSU had its first double-digit lead by the 9:12 mark of the first half on a putback by Turnbow. The sophomore forward finished with career highs in scoring and rebounding. LSU led 35-15 at halftime after Middle Tennessees Jackie Pickel hit a 3-point shot from just across the midcourt line as time expired. It was the Blue Raiders second basket in the final 13:25 of the half. Middle Tennessee got as close as 16 points with 7:10 remaining on a shot by Clark, but the Lady Tigers lead was quickly back up to 20 on a pair of free throws by Turnbow and a jumper by Barrett.
