Senior moment: On Thursday, the men’s basketball team fell to Minnesota, 63-56, in the first round of the Big Ten tournament. It might have been the final game for Tim Frazier, the senior guard who is Penn State’s career assist leader, and just the second player in Big Ten history to reach 1,000 points, 600 assists, and 500 rebounds. Here’s hoping Frazier and his teammates get at least one more chance this season—there are rumors the Lions will host a CBI tournament game next week. In the meantime, you can still vote for Frazier for the national Senior Class Award.

Speaking of seniors… It’s not too late to vote for John Urschel ’12, ’13g for the Sullivan Award as the nation’s top amateur athlete.

OK, just one more senior: The Centre Daily Times has a cool feature on Mike McDonagh, the lone senior on the Nittany Lion hockey team. He’ll suit up for the last time at Pegula Arena this weekend when the Lions host Ohio State, tonight and Saturday, in their final regular-season games.

The green lobby: There’s an interesting piece over at Slate today about the seemingly unlikely political pairing of conservative politicians and marijuana legalization lobbyists. The idea is that those lobbyists are reaching out to fiscal conservatives and libertarians who, in the words of Slate’s headline writer, “hate taxes more than they hate drugs.” Reading it, I wasn’t surprised to see the name of Rob Kampia ’93, head of the Marijuana Policy Project, long one of the nation’s most prominent lobbyists for marijuana decriminalization. The MPP has had a hand in changing laws around the country in recent years, and history may well remember Kampia as playing a huge role in the growing acceptance of legal weed in America.
