BOT: It’s Christmas for UK funds

University has built up more than $50 million in its coffers,
all available for matching funds under governor's program

By Lori Mercado

More than $50 million in private gifts
and contributions are now eligible for
matches by the Research Challenge Trust
Fund after the UK Board of Trustees met
yesterday afternoon.

A total of $31,629,350 was accepted and
allocated by the board. Over 20 newly an
nounced gifts and pledges to the Universi-
ty were approved by the board. totaling
$9,570,250. The board also allocated gifts
and pledges previously accepted for a total
of $22.059.000.

Gifts and pledges will be used to en-

dow 22 new academic chairs and 30 new
professorships, and will also provide fund-
ing for additional academic programs.

With the recent endowments, the total
number of academic chairs has doubled
since last June. to 54. The number of pro-
fessorships increased from 52 to 98.

Joseph Burch, vice president for Uni-
versity Relations. said the importance of
the new chairs and professorships will re-
flect on the University‘s success in entic-
ing and keeping distinguished faculty.
while providing for greater education.

Kentucky General Assembly. allocates up
to $66.7 million to UK in matching funds
through gifis and pledges.

The University now has approximate-
ly $16 million to raise in gifts and pledges
to meet the challenge.

“You can see why this was such an ex-
citing meeting for the board. This is the
first time in our history we have reached
SIT? high levels of these gifts," Burch
sa1 .

UK President Charles Wethington said
after the meeting that the goal is to com-
plete the challenge by the end of the calen~
dar year. Wethington said he hopes to re-
port to Gov. Patton and the General As-
sembly the success of the project.

“I want the University of Kentucky to
have a record of success to meet the

As a result of the challenge. Wething-
ton said there was much more interest in
private fund-raising and an incentive to
those who are raising funds.

“We are very pleased with the positive
reaction we have received from private
donors individuals, corporations and
foundations," Wethington said. “I believe
it shows that our alumni and friends real-
ize the importance of this Research Chal.
lenge Trust Fund program and what it
means to the future of our University."

Contributions aided multiple areas.

Rabchevsky can help fulfill dream of helping those with spinal
injuries through grant approved by UK Board of Trustees

Alexander Rabchevsky was a junior in
college when his motorcycle crashed.

Fifteen hours later. he said he was still
moving his legs. But later, Rabchevsky said
the area around his spinal cord injury
swelled. leaving him in a wheelchair. para-
lyzed from the chest down.

Rabchevsky. who was already a pre-
med student. said he immediately began
looking for opportunities to enter the field
of spinal cord injury research.

That was in 1985. Now Rabchevsky is a
32- -year- -old post doctoral fellow at UK
studying the effects of a drug he hopes will
eventually minimize the effects of spinal
cord injury for others.

Thanks to a recent grant from the
state' 5 Spinal Cord and Head Injury Trust
Rabchevsky' 3 work might be secure for the

The UK Board of Trustees yesterday ac-
cepted the $2. 5 million gift. which will be
used to create a proposed Spinal Cord and
Brain Injury Research Center.

Trust advisory) board really wants to get a

said Phyllis Wise, chair of the physiology
department and serves on the trust's advi-
sory board.

“Ultimately. we‘ll find a way to treat
the people that suffer from this faster." she

The funds for the proposed UK center
will be distributed over a period of five
years and used to establish “a center with-
out walls." which will include allocations
for endowed chairs for: a clinical director.
two faculty members conducting spinal
cord and brain injury research, and post-
doctoral and graduate student fellowships.
said James Geddes. associate professor of
anatomy and neurobiology and interim di-
rector of the proposed center.

The University of Louisville will re-
ceive a similar grant for spinal cord and
head injury studies although it does not
plan to use the money in the same way.
Wise said.

The trust. which was established four
years ago. has accrued the funds from a
$12. 50 surcharge added to all Kentucky
speeding tickets.

The Kentucky legislature was the first
to adopt this kind of plan and a number of
others have followed suit Geddes said.

“With Christopher Reeves spinal cord

injury has received a lot more attention re-
cently," Geddes said.

UK will apply for $2 million in match-
ing funds from the Research Challenge
Trust to match the endowed chairs and
post- doctoral and graduate student fellow-
ship endowments bringing the proposed
center' 5 assets to $4. 5 million.

Geddes said that research on treatment
fot spinal cord and head injuries falls into
two categories. finding ways to limit the
damage that occurs and promote regrowth
of neurons after an injury.

“By trying to minimize secondary
events. (there is the) possibility to minimize
the damage that occurs and preserve the re-
maining function.“ he said.

Which is exactly what Rabchevsky‘s
work involves.

He's trying to find out how a drug treat-
ment called Basic Fibroblast Growth Fac
tor. a protein that occurs naturally in the
human body helps improve the motor func-
tion in rats with spinal cord damage.

Rabchevsky said bruising" often hap-
pens after the injury causing the damaged
area to grow beyond the actual site of im-
pact. The rats that receive a dosage of BFGF
tend to walk better than those without it. he

Rabchevsky said he hopes BFGF can be
combined with another drug treatment to
help keep “bruising‘ from occurring and
potentially help spinal cord cells regener

“A human being may be more plastic
(or resilient) than we thought." he said.

Geddes said the clinical director will
ideally establish a clinic where patients
can participate in clinical trials for new
treatments like the one Rabchevsky is
working on now.

What we‘re hoping is that we can re-
lieve the paralysis and allow them to func-
tion again. Wise said.

Young Library. Sisi Teng
dies at UK Hospital

By Richard Cook



Shanghai native Sisi Teng. a
27~year-old graduate finance stu-
dent at UK. died Feb. 9 after col-
lapsing in the William T. Young

He was taken to the UK Hos-
pital where he was pronounced
dead. The reported cause of death
was coronary disease. according
to Dean of Students David Stock-
ham‘s office.

Teng's family flew in from
Shanghai for a memorial service
held at Chinese Christian
Church last Saturday. A dona-
tion box was passed around at
the service to help the family
with the cost of transporting his
body back to Shanghai.

“His father bowed very low.“
said Holly Bundrant. a nutrition
1 science doctoral candidate. “It
was a sign of great respect and

Teng was born in Shanghai.
where he lived until coming to the
United States in 1991. He attended
St. Mary‘s Preparatory High
School in Michigan. While there.
he played soccer and received sec—
ondary honors for scholastic
achievement. Due to the costs of
transporting the body. SGA Presi-
dent Nate Brown said the family
might cremate Teng and carry the
ashes back with them.

“I understand it costs about
310.000 to ship the body." said
Brown. “If someone could take
on a fundraising campaign for
Teng's family. SGA would help
out with publicity.“

Brown attended the memori-
al service and said although he
did not know Teng pers‘onally, it
was obvious from the mass of
people in attendance that Teng
was well loved.

“I could see he had made an
impact on people's lives." Brown
said. “It made me value my inter-
national friends."

Bundrant said Teng always
put his friends” needs above his
own needs. She called him "highe
1y motivated and independent.“

Brown said the SGA spon-
sors a memorial walk for stu
dents who have died throughout
the past year. Students have ex-
} pressed various opinions about
‘ permanent memorials for stu-
dents who die. he said. One sug-
gestion is a memorial room at the
W.T. Young Library.

Information about deceased
students can be obtained from
the Dean of Students Office.

Cats look
to go deep

UK Head Coach Tubby Smith calls for more
long range bombing from his shooters

By Jen Smith

They‘re not your father’s

OK. They‘re not the team
you knew two or three years
ago. They’re not the team that
runs and guns. They're not the
team that shoots the threes.

But they might be.

After four straight South-
eastern Conference road losses,
UK is looking for a new outlet
— a way outlet.

Way out meaning from

UK has not been the best
three-point shooting team this
year. It is last in the SEC in
three-point percentage at 31.2
percent. It is eighth in the
league in three-point field goals
made with 5.72 a game. In
games it has won, UK shot 32
percent from beyond the arc. In
losses, it shot a mere 16.5 per-

So when the Cats shoot the
ball well from downtown, they
win. With a few exceptions,
when they miss, they lose. 80
what‘s a Cat to do?

“We're just gonna stop
shooting the threes,“ UK Coach
Tubby Smith quipped. “Nah.
We’re probably gonna have to
take more threes. We gotta
shoot it in order to make it. We
have some good three-point
shooters overall, we shoot it
well in practice and individual

What seems strange then,
is changing the system this late
in the season. UK has been a
force inside with big men Ja-
maal Magloire, Michael
Bradley and even Jules Cama-

The team is No. 1 in the
SEC in field goal percentage
and second in rebounding. So it
seems logical that UK would
stick with what has been effec-
tive in the past.

But senior tri-captain Scott
Padgett has a different take.

He said if the team could
just have a couple more threes
fall in conjunction with effec-
tive inside play, they would be
unstoppable. He also added that
the team has not been working
on threes specifically in prac-

“We have to shoot some

threes on our own, I guess" he
said, adding that UK just hasn’t
looked the same since it
stopped becoming a power-
house from behind the arc. He
cited the Tennessee game,
when the team attempted 11
threes and made only two.
Three of those attempts came
in the last 30 seconds of the

“That's not Kentucky bas—
ketball," Padgett said. “(Smith’s
idea to shoot more) sort of
sounds strange, but you gotta
take ’em to make ‘em."

Smith nominated Padgett.
Heshimu Evans, Wayne Turn-
er, Saul Smith and Desmond
Allison for the three-point hon-
ors in the postseason, starting
in Atlanta on Friday night.

Getting over the hump

After losses, coaches and
players always talk about a lit
tle tweaking and minor
changes to motivate them for
the next game. After losing the
Eastern Division title to Ten-
nessee, some major changes
were instituted.

Sunday afternoon. the vet-
eran players took it upon them-
selves to call a player-only team

“Everybody feels bad about
the loss," senior Turner said.
“We talked about it as a team.
We‘re 0-0 from here on out. We
wanted to make sure everyone
knew that.

“We were making sure the
young guys realize that the reg-
ular season is over with. It‘s
time to put it into overdrive in

It sunk in for Magloire, a
junior, who wasn‘t quick to
make one of his predictions for
a UK win this year, but who ex-
pressed his optimism in gener-

“I’ve always said we‘re the
hardest working team in the
country," Magloire said. “Now
we're gonna show it. We know
now that this can't be a one-
man or two-man show, it‘s
gonna take the team.“

Padgett remained opti-
mistic, as well. He said the loss
didn’t look nearly as bad on

“1 think we were real down
on ourselves (after Ten-
nessee)," he said. “I mean the
