UK Athletics didn't ask for practice facility funds

Ky. Senate allots $15 million;
other priorities lose funding

By Adam Sichlto
III? xzurucxv wrist

The UK Athletic Department didn‘t lobby
state legislators for bonds to help build a has-
ketball practice facility. but officials said yes-
terday they could use the funding.

Late Monday night. the Kentucky Senate
passed its budget proposal. which included a
$15 million allotment to help fund the $29.5
million facility project. In the same budget. the
Senate reduced or eliminated funding for
some of UK‘s "priority projects," including a
biopharmaceutical complex. a Chandler Med-
ical Center expansion and a renovated student

N0 senator has come forward to claim the
budget addition. said Sen. Ernesto Scorsone,

“We need to respect what the university
tells us.‘ Scorsone said. “We shouldn't be med-
dling and trying to tell the university how to
do its business."

Sen. Tom Buford. R-Nicholasville and a
member of the Senate‘s appropriation and rev-
enue committee. said the addition of the facili-
ty to the budget was a surprise.

“The $15 million basketball facility very
likely may have been added by Senate Republi-
can leadership at the last minute." Buford
said. Buford said he'd been to every committee
meeting. and the topic was never discussed.

UK Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart said
regardless of whether the Senate‘s funding is
included in the final budget. the facility will be

paid for using only athletics funds.

“.No private funding Barnhart
said. “There continues to be a misconception
that we're using state money. That's not true
and not accurate.

“We do not want to conflict with the needs
and desires of this university." Barnhart said.

UK President Lee Todd said he doesn't
want the athletics department to slow its

"We're trying to drive both engines.“ Todd
said. referring to athletics and academics. “I
don‘t want Mitch to slack off his mission. lt
complicates my life if he slides.

“Athletics is not a drain on our acade-

mics." Todd added.

Currently: one-third of the facility‘s fund-

partment behind in its progress. said Rob Mul-

their first field goal in 9:30.

Hayes made the free throw to com

on to defeat the Volunteers 755-61 in front

The dunk and free throw kicked off
a 12-0 UK run. and the Volunteers never

got back within 10 points.

“I just wanted to be aggressive."
"I knew he was
coming. and my first thought was to go

that kind of broke them right there."

Dieting can be dangerous

By Jean Marie O'Mahony

With Spring Break just
around the corner and New
Year's weight loss resolutions
in high gear. the desire to be
thin is a constant worry for
many students.

The thought of fitting into
a bathing suit on the beaches
of Florida or Mexico moti»
vates many to increase work-
outs and decrease food intake.

But people need to take
precautions so they don't put
their health at risk. said 'l‘ay»
lor Charron. gmup fitness co
ordinator for campus recre-
ation at the Johnson Center.

Though it‘s important for
everyone to exercise regularly.
over-exercising can be harm-
ful. Charmn said.

“Goals people are trying
to achieve can actually be
(hampered) by overtraining.“
she said.

According to the Nemours
Foundation for Health. ex-
cessive exercise can damage
tendons. ligaments. bones.
cartilage and joints. and when
minor injuries are not al-
lowed to heal. they often re-
sult in long—term damage."
This can happen to both men
and women.

Symptoms of this "over-
training principle" exercis»
ing and not allowing the body
sufficient time to recover be-
tween workouts include fa-
tigue. an increased resting
heart rate. slower heart rate

strength and constant sore»

doing sessions two to three
times per week with 10 to 12

Along with exercise. diet

Eating too little is also a
potential problem. According

eating less than the recom-

At best, if the current pace toward
construction can be maintained. the facil-
ity would be ready by fall semester 2006.
Barnhart said.

“You have to look at the long~range ef-
fects of this." Barnhart said of the “vi-
tal" facility. “It‘s an absolute priority for
us to get this done."

Both Mullens and Barnhart spoke of
“finding a funding mechanism" to help
pick up the pace. The Senate‘s offering of
$15 million in bonds is one method for
that. Mullens said.

Without the bonds, “that makes it
more difficult," Mullens said. “It would
be a long-shot; there would have to be a
lot done.

“Those bonds are $15 million we
could use to help get this project going."

When asked if the athletic depart-
ment had any prior indication that the
Senate was going to include that funding
in its budget bill. Mullens said “I don't
think so."

The UK Board of Trustees approved
the $2.5 million design phase of the facili-
ty plan in its October 2003 meeting. The
92.3005quanefoot complex will house two
basketball courts and two floors of athlet-

e.” at:

ic offices.

Currently. the facility is in the last
stage of the design phase. Mullens said.
The architect hired by UK Athletics is
preparing documents for the bidding
process. and a construction management
firm has already been hired to help in-
stall the facility. which will be located be
hind Memorial Coliseum. A commuter
parking lot will be removed.

If the state government gives UK Ath-
letics the go-ahead which the Senate
has done with the $15 million in bonds ,
construction could begin in late summer
or early fall. Mullens said.

“This is the only piece we need to con-
tinue to maintain being the No. 1 college
basketball program in the country“ Mul-
lens said.

Mullens named at least eight major
National Collegiate Athletic Association
Divisionlschools , including Southeast-
ern Conference schools Vanderbilt and
Florida , who have practice facilities.

“In our opinion. we’re the leader of
that entire group." he said.

Barnhart said UK is probably second-
tolast in its conference when it comes to
facility improvements over the past

“The basketball program speaks for
itself." Barnhart said. “We hold a domi-
nant position nationally Our ability to
maintain that includes having the facili-
ties to do that."

Currently. gymnastics. volleyball and

"Kentucky basketball wants to be the

Tuesday “We‘ve got the best tradition, the

SMS announces tomorrow about Nietzel's presidentialic‘andidacy

By Adam Sichko
THE xrnrucxr mun

UK Provost Mike N ietzel‘s bid to be-
come president at Southwest Missouri
State University was decided yesterday
_, but the voting committee is mum on
who it chose.

The eight members of the SMS
Board of Governors , the equivalent of
UK’s Board of Trustees met at noon
Central time yesterday to vote on whom
it would select as its next president. Ni-
etzel competed against John Sellars. a
vice president at Syracuse University.
and David Belcher. provost at the Uni-
versity of Arkansas-Little Rock.

Current SMS President John Keiser
is retiring in June.

Kelli Wolf. the student representa‘
tive to the Board of Governors. said the

meeting went well as did the national
search. which began in September 2004.

“So many universities would hire a
head-hunter for something like this. but
we decided to do this ourselves." Wolf

The board meeting was closed to the
public. and the group has planned a for-
mal announcement for tomorrow morn-

“There was consensus." Wolf said of
the seven-vote count. Wolf. the eighth
member of the board. is a non-voting

"Everyone's very excited about our
future and our candidate." she said.

Wolf declined to comment on whom
the board picked as the president. or if
the vote was unanimous.

Phone calls to the seven other board
members were not returned yesterday.

The presidential search committee
announced its three finalists in January.
and Nietzel took his official visit to SMS
in mid-February.

Chris Curtis. a member of the
search committee. said Nietzel was
unanimously supported on the search
committee as a finalist,

“To me. it would have been between
him and Dr. Sellars." Curtis said of how
he would have voted.

“1 don‘t want to steal the thunder
from (tomorrow‘s) announcement. to be
honest." said Curtis. SMS's Student
Government president. "It wouldn‘t be
fair to the people I know and who I‘ve
talked with."

The Board of Governors will pre
sent SMS‘s new president tomorrow at
9:30 am. Eastern time.

Conference tournaments are all
about second chances.

And the UK women‘s basketball
team has largely been able to capitalize
on those second chances in recent years
in the Southeastern Conference tour-

UK (15 14 4- 10 SEC) won more
games than it lost this year for the first
time since 1999-2000. But the Cats have
won three of their past six first- round
tournament games. despite a .424 regu-
