Longer men's 3-point line hurts women's shooting too

It’s well-documented that the extra foot added to the 3-point line has affected the men’s game — bringing down the national average for made 3-pointers to its lowest since the 1998-99 season at 34.23 percent, according to statsheet.com — but are there any effects on the women’s game as a result?

The easy answer would be no, because the women’s line has stayed in its original place, 19 feet, 9 inches from the basket. However, research by the Daily Iowan suggests the opposite — the women’s 3-point percentage has decreased at almost the same rate as the men’s 3-point percentage.

BY BY DANNY MEHIGAN ~ Missourian

The 2007-08 season saw the highest 3-point percentage in the men’s game, 35.02 percent, since the national adoption of the line before the 1986-87 season. In the BCS conferences of women’s basketball — the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-10, and SEC — the 3-point percentage has dropped more than 0.6 from last year. The percentage as of Feb. 18 in the major six conferences is 31.94, compared with last year’s 32.58.

“It’s hard, because I never really look down at the line,” said Iowa senior Kristi Smith, who is shooting 42.9 percent from beyond the arc. “If I catch it, I’m open and in range, I’m going to shoot it.”

In an attempt to curb any decrease in 3-point shooting percentage, Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder addressed the problem at the beginning of the season by spending time in practice stepping on the men’s line.

“I was so tired of our women spotting up from behind the men’s 3-point line,” Bluder said. “I actually just made them come out and jump on top of the men’s 3 line so they got used to stepping on that line.
“It’s human nature to not step on the line.”

Despite the initial drill at the beginning of the season, senior Wendy Ausdemore, who is shooting 37.3 percent from downtown, admitted needing constant reminders during practice.

“Coach calls us out in practice all the time and she says, ‘Make it easier on yourself. You’re way behind the men’s line,’ ” Ausdemore said. “But as a player, I guess I don’t really notice when I do it except for if my shots are consistently short. Then, I can look down and tell that I’ve been behind the line.”

Ausdemore estimated that she gets told at least once a practice by Bluder that she is well beyond the men’s line. Despite the reminders, she has endured her lowest 3-point percentage since her freshman year — In 2007-08 she held the third-highest 3-point percentage in the NCAA at 45.6 percent, and in 2006-07 she finished in 14th, connecting on 41.6 percent of her 3-point attempts.

Only the two coastal conferences, the ACC and the Pac-10, have increased their 3-point percentages thus far in comparison with the 2007-08 campaign. Iowa’s Smith, whose 42.9 3-point percentage ranks 20th in the NCAA, has also increased her percentage from last year’s 34.6 percent, and she has reason to believe the new men’s line might actually be beneficial.
“Coach had us stomp on the men’s line because she wanted us to toe up to the women’s line,” Smith said. “It’s always in the back of my mind that I have to toe up and get that much closer.”

Another issue to be taken into account when considering the decrease in 3-point percentage is the varying colors of 3-point lines. In Carver-Hawkeye Arena, the women’s line is black, and the men’s line is white. In contrast, Duke, which Iowa played at Cameron Indoor Stadium on Dec. 4, has a white women’s line and a blue men’s line — Iowa’s shot 27.78 percent from 3-point range in Durham, N.C.; its season average is 36.1 percent.

“What makes it also difficult is in our arena our line is the black line and the men’s line is the white line. But you could go to a different arena, and it could be reversed,” Bluder said. “I think it probably needs to be more uniform at least with the outside line being this color and the inside line one being darker and one being lighter. That could be maybe a national change that would help that situation.”

How to keep your dish nice and toasty

One of the many joys I experience while working at the Lee Clarion is seeing all of the different ways students use our campus newspaper at Lee.

Reading is, of course, the primary function most use the paper for, but the Lee Clarion's utility goes far beyond simple words.

For example, the newspaper makes a perfect doorstop. It also never fails to make a stage appearance as a prop.

During the Culture Fest last night, however, I found a third equally entertaining use: covering food and keeping it warm.

That's right, if you need a way to keep last night's green peas peppy and delicious, consider wrapping them in a thin layer of freshly-read Lee Clarion.

There's no better way.

Are we disrespecting the rest of the world?

Diversity club officers and Student Leadership Council members were setting up for the Lee University Culture Fest this afternoon, preparing a host of international flags to be displayed on the PCSU deck facing the lawn.

On my way down the stairs of the student union, I was asked a question by a passing student:

"Do you think a pile of flags on the surface of the sidewalk shows proper respect for those nations?" he said, already convinced of the answer.

It's a good question to ponder.

A United States flag on the ground, even during set-up, would be in violation of proper protocol. According to one flag Web site:

"The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise."

So if the U.S. flag deserves such treatment, should the flags of other nations be better taken care of as well?

What do you think? Leave a comment.

Two states remain on my nerves.

I would like to hereby announce my bitterness toward Wyoming and Montana.

Don't worry, it's only temporary.

The map shown above displays the hit-density for this blog in the United States since the blog began.

While 3,600 views have originated from Tennessee in that time, not one, not a living soul, has accessed my blog from Wyoming or Montana.

I understand that Wyoming is the union's least-populated state, but that kind of an excuse just doesn't cut it anymore.

Seventy countries around the world have visited this blog before those two states. People who don't speak English have visited this blog. Oy!

I get the propaganda every fall – I know there's at least a student from every state represented on Lee's campus. So I'm begging, when you go home for Easter break, please visit this blog.

It's like a puzzle that just needs to be completed.

And for you South Dakota, Delaware and Alaska, I have these words: You barely made the cut. With just one visitor each, I'll let you by this time, but remember, I'm watching.... Read More......

Now that's what I call zoom.

HERE IT IS!

It's so detailed that you can easily count the number of lights on the tennis courts.

I never thought I'd say this, but it's all thanks to Microsoft's Live Search.

Take a gander here.

I do have to warn you, however, that the map's imagery was collected just before the construction of the Leonard Center. So while you'll you'll see relics like the old health clinic, art houses, and SLC meeting place "The House," you'll also miss out on some of Lee's newer locales, like the religion building.

Clock tower shows two different times in Student ID photo

If you take a close look at the 2007-2008 Lee University student ID shown above, you'll notice something peculiar:

The clock tower shows two different times. On the left side, it's about 8:10. On the right, it's about 9:40.

There will be dancing on campus?

Where one failed another attempts to succeed.

Lee University's International Student Fellowship plans on hosting "Salsa in the Park" this Tuesday, March 24 at 7 p.m. in Alumni Park.

"There will be food and mucho dancing!!!!" reads the description of the event.

All this less than two weeks after a similar university club event, the "Swing-a-thon" was cancelled, because dancing on campus violates student handbook rules:

"Social dancing (sexually suggestive or otherwise) is prohibited and will result in the assignment of accountability hours. Dances of any kind, which are sponsored by University sanctioned organizations, are disallowed."

The event currently has 41 guests confirmed on Facebook, including dean of students Alan McClung and professor Sara Ortega.

Storms Hall to hold March Madness bracket tournament

Hey guys,

Welcome back from Spring Break!!!! As most of you probably know, it's
March Madness time. It's time to get out that bracket, study up on
the teams, and decide who is going to win it all. Although the pride that
comes with winning is great, here at Storms, we believe that not only
should winning make you feel good, but it should put money in your
pocket as well. The top four finishers will receive prizes with the
grand prize being worth more than $50.

So here's what you need to do:

1) Print out your own bracket or get a bracket from either myself
or your RA
2) Fill it out and put your name on it (very important).
3) Return it to us by Tuesday morning to get counted for the first
game (only worth 1 point so it's not that big of a deal) or return it
to us by Thursday morning at the latest. You can just slide it under
either of my doors or hand it to one of your RA's.

Let me know if you have any questions. Good luck to you all. Go Badgers!!!!

Facebook messes up my life

• The follow post was guest-written by Summer Coy, designer for the Lee Clarion.

Have you ever noticed that Facebook has an addiction to change?

When I first started using Facebook four years ago, the social networking Web site was simple. You added friends, wrote on each other’s wall, and sent messages. Back then, there weren't even photo albums.

In comparison, it now seems as if Facebook is changing or adding some “new” feature every other day.

It’s very aggravating to us habit-forming college students!

Today I logged onto Facebook hoping to quickly respond to a question someone asked me on my wall. I clicked the wall-to-wall button and this is the screen that popped up!!!
Seriously, what do you think I’m suppposed to do with this???

I’m a busy college student with OCD tendencies and I'm used to having everything the way I like. I can’t handle it when Facebook decides to change on me every second and ruin my lifestyle.

HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO MAKE SENSE OF THIS???

I don’t know where to post my comment to my friend, what this weird empty box is doing at the top of the screen or how to make sense of any of the mumbo jumbo that’s been thrown onto my screen!!!

Ooh! There’s this Deutsch button. Maybe that will change the page to German and I’ll be able to make more sense of this thing!

So I press it, and nothing happens! Thanks a lot Facebook!

If it worked well before, why must it transform into something that doesn’t work, just to mess with everyone’s life, adding one more challenge to our pile.

Why must Facebook keep evolving and adding stuff we don’t even need like applications?

HOW MANY GIFT APPLICATIONS DO WE NEED?

If you want to give someone a gift, just go to the store and buy it for them! Trust me, it will mean more!!

For that matter, you can even make a gift for free!!! I’m sure your friend will greatly appreciate it more than being poked a gazillion times.

Here's my message to you: spend more time with friends in person.

And here's my message to Facebook: stop ruining my life by mixing things up.

Swing-a-thon scrapped due to dancing policy

An on-campus dance event originally scheduled for this weekend was cancelled because it violated Lee University student lifestyle expectations.

Alpha Psi Omega, Lee's theatre honor society, was planning to host a six-hour Swing-a-thon fundraiser March 20 at the Mayfield Annex gym.

A page advertising the event was created on Facebook and displayed 25 confirmed guests before the event was deleted.

"It's the perfect opportunity to dance all your stress away, forget finals, and just have fun!" read the event's description. "Come join us for a night of dancing (not just swing), free food, and cash prizes!"

Linsey Retcofsky, the organizer for the event, wouldn't say why the Swing-a-thon was cancelled.

"We do not wish to disclose that information to spare reaction from students in the department," she said.

Multiple students planning on attending the event said they were confused about what had happened.

APO member Anna Cook said she didn't even know if the Swing-a-thon was delayed or outright cancelled.

Theatre professor Dr. Christine Williams confirmed that the event had been cancelled.

"Dancing's not approved," she said, noting that Lee University's handbook said the social activity was against policy.

Lee University's student handbook reads:

"Social dancing (sexually suggestive or otherwise) is prohibited and will result in the assignment of accountability hours. Dances of any kind, which are sponsored by University sanctioned organizations, are disallowed."

Williams said that she repeatedly asked members of APO to approve the nature of the event with the Student Life office.

When the organizers finally did, the event was axed.

APO is planning to organize a new fundraiser event, Williams said, noting that it would likely be an opening night reception for the theatre department's upcoming production of "An Ideal Husband," which opens April 3. Read More......

Kingdom Players isn't just a club, it's a category

There are six different kinds of clubs at Lee University: academic, diversity, Greek, spiritual, social service and Kingdom Players.

Yes, you heard correctly.

Kingdom Players, a touring drama ministry group at Lee, gets its own designation on the Student Clubs & Organizations page at Lee University's Web site.

The group's favor doesn't end at the prominent listing, however. The listing links to a full Lee-produced Web site about the club.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Kingdom Players; I even once got upset when I missed the annual KP chapel.

But seriously, why the special interest? There are plenty of other clubs that have Web sites and deserve top listing online.

For now, I guess freshmen who want to start a new club on campus have a new choice to make. Should it be a diversity club, or should it be a Kingdom Players club? Read More......

Dining Hall makes "mistake," closes an hour earlier than promised


Deacon Jones Dining Hall locked its doors and cleared its buffets an hour earlier than it promised students today.

The doors closed at 6 p.m. and remained locked throughout the evening. Students who gathered at the doors were let in by others already dining inside, only to find that the only food remaining was ice cream and cereal.

Sodexo Catering Manager Jamie Shuler stated that the staff had made a mistake by closing early and that food would reappear at some of the empty stations shortly.

The dining hall traditionally closes at 6 p.m. on Sundays and has, in fact, been closed on the final Sunday of spring and fall break in years past. The decision to remain open until 7 p.m. was a special first-time modification for this break.

Today's blunder is reminiscent of the "early opening" fall break incident last semester. The dining hall had promised it would be open the Sunday evening before classes resumed but never opened its doors.

Flames golf tournament updates

From SI


DAYTONA, Fla. - Lee's women's golf team is in its first year of competition, but it hasn't taken a pair of its players long to grab the attention of several of the NAIA top golfers.

Julie Donnestad, who was a standout for the women's national championship soccer team, has joined the Lee women's golf program this spring and is tied for second place after the first round of the Eagle Invitational that is being hosted by Embry-Riddle. Donnestad opened tourney play with a 3-over-par 75. She is tied with Anna Haller of Embry-Riddle, Jackie Yu of Northwood (Fla.) University, and Charlotte Gullieux of Wayland Baptist (Texas). Daniela Iacobelli of Florida Institute of Technology is the leader with a 2-under-par 70.

Rachel Ingram, who transferred to Lee from UT-Knoxville this season, tallied a 76 and is tied for sixth with Tara Wiley (Southern Indiana). Jessi Hodge came in at 102 for the Lady Flames and Shauna Webb carded a 116.

The Lee ladies are in 12th place in the 12-team event. Host Embry-Riddle is the leader at 310, while Northwood is second at 315. The Lady Flames finished at 369.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On the men's side, Lee men's golf team will have to battle from 20-strokes back if it entertains any hope of bringing home the first-place trophy from the 20th Annual Eagle Invitational being hosted by Embry-Riddle.

Lee senior Matthew Clouse had an outstanding first 18. He fired a 1-under-par 71. However, Clouse came back with a 78 in the final 18 holes of the long day and stands at 149 after 36 holes of the 54-hole tournament.

Freshman Taylor Huse is tied with Clouse for 10th place in the overall medalist battle. Huse was much more consistent with a 74-75 - 149. Wes Nobles is tied for 26th after a 75-79 - 154 and Joshua Lawson rounded out the Lee scores that counted with a 79-76 - 155. He is tied for 31st.

John Pannone and Reed Howard, both of South Carolina Beaufort, are one and two in the medalist hunt. Pannone started with a 73 and finished with a 70 for a 143 total. Howard posted a 71-73 - 144. Read More......

The top ten strangest Lee photos

Here's a list of the top ten strangest photos you'll see at Lee:

10. It's not everyday that a lightsaber fight breaks out in a dorm room. But then again, Davis Hall open dorm nights can be known for some interesting behavior. "Luke, I am your roommate."


9. When spring weather finally emerges, birds begin signing, trees blossom, and guys wearing Wishbone hats begin reading classic American literature on the pedmall.

8. Most people have to decide between a bowl or a cone when it comes time to scoop ice cream at the dining hall. But not this student, who just takes the whole flavorful container on with a single plastic spoon.

7. Some kids have building ingrained in their systems. If you build giant towers out of bottles and cups in the dining hall, you probably suffered from a lack of exposure to Legos as a child.

6. We all know that the most efficient way to sneak someone into your dorm room isn't through a second floor window. In all reality, this is probably an example of the world's most dangerous DVD return.

5. Elevators never have been a comfortable place to stand. That's precisely why this PCSU lift could use shopping cart seating.

4. This is what the Lee University clock tower looks like after a disgusting prank. Following the drop-off of a leaky toilet in the epicenter, Campus Safety rolled some caution tape around the "crime scene."

3. What's this? West Side Story in the PCSU post office? It's either a river-dancing street gang or Lee University's dance team. Hard to tell.

2. The cafeteria has long been the best place to hold secret meetings. It's such a great spot to blend into the crowd by having lunch underneath a table surrounded by shreds of napkin.

1. Speaking of the cafeteria, what better use is there for a pierced ear than a straw right through the middle?

Baseball's Era of Steroids

Photobucket

Steroids in baseball has become the hot topic for the last few years, but steroids have been used noticeably since the mid to late 90s.

Once steroids became big in baseball, the game changed a lot. Guys started to look like body builders, and it became a more offensive game.

More and more guys started to hit 30 or more home runs per season. More fans came to games because people wanted to see the long ball, and with steroids the balls went further more consistently.

The number of users went up over the years. Back in the mid to late 90s the most notable users were Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa.

More and more players began using them in the early 2000s. Barry Bonds became the face of baseball after breaking the single season and career home run records. Bonds was ousted from baseball, but he remained the face of the steroid era.

Most recently, superstar Alex Rodriguez inherited the title. Most people thought Rodriguez would save baseball from this era. This just showed how big steroids is in baseball.

People say that the steroid era ruined baseball, but I like to think otherwise. This era gave people what they wanted.

For the owners it meant more money went into their pockets because more fans were coming to games and more merchandise was being sold.

For the fans, they got to see more balls launched out of the park. It was a win-win situation for the owners and fans.

Steroids, though, do not give you talent. Granted it lets you hit the ball further but you still have to be able to put the bat on the ball.

It does not give you talent; it gives you a chance to enhance the talent that was given to you.

Look at it this way. If you were making $45,000 a year, and a coworker told you about a pill or injection that would let you double your salary.

The majority of people would take that pill or injection because we want to make more money. I think that is the way the athletes feel.

It is a competitive world and you have to do what you can to get the edge over the next guy to achieve the things you want to achieve.
