An initiative to prevent domestic violence has helped 13 Saint Mary’s students so far this school year, director of the Belles Against Violence Office (BAVO) Connie Adams said. Adams presented to the Student Government Association (SGA) at its meeting Wednesday to discuss the Green Dot program, an initiative to help prevent domestic violence. BAVO began its office this year at the College, and the fact that students have used it shows the need for this kind of action on campus, Adams said. “There is such a need here and these are issues that affect all of us,” she said. The Green Dot Initiative encourages people to not ignore violence or situations that may lead to violence when they see it, Adams said. “Green dots are very simple decisions, very simple actions we can take in our everyday lives,” she said. “[Green dots are] those times when you witness something that doesn’t seem quite right [and] finding ways when you see those things happen that you can really do something about it, taking that extra step.” Adams said there are many different motives why people avoid these situations, even when they suspect violence may be an issue. “There are a lot of reasons we don’t take that extra step; we’re embarrassed, we wonder if what we see is really what we see, or we’re shy and don’t want to get noticed,” she said. According to Adams, one in four women will experience violence in their lifetime, which creates red dots, or acts of violence that she said do not need to be the case. “If we do nothing it is an acceptance of what is happening and every time we accept it, it’s a red dot,” she said. For students interested in helping with the program can attend an informational meeting in the basement of Holy Cross today at 7:30 p.m. There will also be a training session on Nov. 7 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for students. Adams said there are limited slots, so students should RSVP if they are interested. Students who are interested can contact her at [email protected] Rachael Chesley, student body president, also discussed two new SGA initiatives being launched next week; the Board’s new website and its Discount Program, which will provide student discounts at select vendors when they are out in the South Bend community. Chesley said the Board will be working to market the website to students and hopefully making it part of the “Quicklinks” on the main Saint Mary’s site. “We want to try to get students to utilize it now so it becomes more habitual and they use it all the time,” Chesley said. Information about the Discount Program will be included on the new website. Students will be able to use their ID cards to receive the discounts. “[Students] don’t have to register for it,” Chesley said. “It’s just a benefit for students.”

Wisconsin sophomore guard Jordan Taylor combined with fellow guards Trevon Hughes and Jason Bohannon to score 55 of the Badgers\’ 79 points in their OT win over Penn State.[/media-credit]Winning their second game in a row in dramatic comeback fashion Sunday, the Wisconsin men’s basketball team will be painted by many as a resilient group that keeps finding ways to win, despite missing its leading inside presence in junior forward Jon Leuer.While resilient sounds nice, stubborn might be more accurate.In the four game stretch since Leuer has been sidelined, the Badgers have hoisted 109 threes — an average of 27 per game — and have connected on a weak 27 percent. Compounding the poor 3-point shooting, Wisconsin has only attempted 103 two-point field goals during the same four-game run.Still, with a 3-1 record over the past two weeks, UW has little plan on changing their offensive strategy.“We have struggled, but we have gotten good looks,” UW senior guard Jason Bohannon, who finished the game with 13 points on 3-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc, said. “It’s not a matter of getting good looks, we should get the ball in the paint a little bit more through penetration or post touches, but we have been getting good looks… it is just a matter of us hitting them.”Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan was even more adamant in his defense of the team’s perimeter-happy offense.“When people start asking about [three-pointers] I go, ‘alright, what did we shoot in this one?’” Ryan said. “Thirty-three. Maybe next game we will shoot 40. Or ten.“We are going to try and take whatever we can get, and if people are going to want to shut down certain things, then we are going to want to find next.”With the Badgers trending towards bombing from downtown as it was, Penn State forced UW to settle for jumpers by mixing defense between straight man-to-man and a 2-3 zone. Usually employing the zone after made baskets, the Nittany Lions packed in behind the three-point line to cut off dribble penetration, practically daring UW to fire away from the outside.From a statistical standpoint, the defense was effective. Wisconsin finished the game shooting a paltry 43 percent from the field and a mediocre 30.3 percent from 3-point range.“We tried to change rhythm on them,” Penn State head coach Ed DeChellis said.“We thought that was going to be important for us.”As Ryan constantly likes to remind the media, stats don’t tell the whole story, and the Badgers came through with big threes when it mattered most.Trimming a 16-point deficit to one in a little over four minutes time, UW nailed three long distance attempts in the scoring barrage to force themselves back in the game. Five minutes later, Jordan Taylor hit two threes on successive possessions before forcing overtime with a two-point jumper.As the clich? goes, live by the three and die by the three; UW was just able to survive tonight.“Now that I have grandkids I am studying when they get that board — you know, that has triangles, circles, squares,” Ryan said launching into a story. “My mom said that if it didn’t fit, I made it fit. I pounded it until I broke it into pieces and I could fit it in… our guys do not get frustrated.“They don’t pound a hammer to make a square go into a round hole… if people are taking away one thing you have to find another.”Taylor hero this time aroundTaylor finished the game against Penn State with a stat line showing 20 points, solid shooting percentages, six assists, zero turnovers and three steals.While those numbers are impressive in any circumstance, the fact that Taylor was mired in a 0-for-18 shooting slump that stretched over 88 minutes of game time makes the sudden explosion even more noteworthy.While senior guard Trevon Hughes usually plays the hero late in games — and he was still sharp today scoring five crucial points in overtime — Taylor got his turn this time, delivering UW’s final eight points of regulation and forcing PSU star guard Talor Battle into a contested jumper for what would have been the game winner.“I hadn’t made a shot in three halves, almost four, so I figured one has to go down eventually,” Taylor said. “I was just trying to keep shooting, and fortunately I started to get hot a little bit.”
