LAS VEGAS (AP) — Jordan Horston just missed a triple-double, Tamari Key had a double-double and No. 11 Tennessee rolled to an 80-55 win over Oklahoma State at the South Point Thanksgiving Shootout on Saturday.

Horston led a balanced attack with 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting and had nine rebounds and nine assists.

Key had 12 points and 11 boards. Alexus Dye and Sara Puckett both added 11 points.

The Lady Vols (6-0) beat a Big 12 team for the third straight game, edging No. 12 Texas in overtime last Saturday and beating Kansas by 10 in their first game at the Shootout. It was Tennessee’s second trip to a Vegas tournament, the first coming 42 seasons ago.

Taylen Collins and Lauren Fields each scored 12 points for the Cowgirls (3-3), the first team that wasn’t undefeated when playing Tennessee this season.

Tennessee never trailed but the Cowgirls stayed close through the first quarter, trailing 18-16. But the Lady Vols opened the second quarter with a 13-2 run and closed it with the last eight points for a 44-25 lead at the half.

The Lady Vols shot 55% (29 of 63) and had a 52-26 rebounding advantage but committed 23 turnovers.

Oklahoma State shot just 31% (21 of 68), going just 2 of 21 from 3-point range and making just half of its 22 free throws.

Tennessee school district bans book about Holocaust

Associated Press

ATHENS, Tenn. — A Tennessee school district has voted to ban a Pulitzer Prize winning graphic novel about the Holocaust due to “inappropriate language” and an illustration of a nude woman, according to minutes from a board meeting.

The McMinn County School Board decided Jan. 10 to remove “Maus” from its curriculum, news outlets reported.

Art Spiegelman won the Pulitzer Prize in 1992 for the work that tells the story of his Jewish parents living in 1940s Poland and depicts him interviewing his father about his experiences as a Holocaust survivor.

In an interview, Spiegelman told CNBC he was “baffled” by the school board’s decision and called the action “Orwellian.”

“It’s leaving me with my jaw open, like, ‘What?'” he said.

The minutes from the school board meeting indicate objections over some of the language used and at first Director of Schools Lee Parkison suggested redacting it “to get rid of the eight curse words and the picture of the woman that was objected to.”

The nude woman is drawn as a mouse. In the graphic novel, Jews are drawn as mice and the Nazis are drawn as cats.

“It shows people hanging, it shows them killing kids, why does the educational system promote this kind of stuff? It is not wise or healthy,” School Board Member Tony Allman said about the book, which was part of the district’s eighth-grade English language arts curriculum.

Instructional supervisor Julie Goodin, a former history teacher, said she thought the graphic novel was a good way to depict a horrific event.

“It’s hard for this generation, these kids don’t even know 9/11, they were not even born,” Goodin said. “Are the words objectionable? Yes, there is no one that thinks they aren’t. But by taking away the first part, it’s not changing the meaning of what he is trying to portray.”

Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers, which does not play a role in McMinn County, noted the timing of the news on Twitter. Weingarten, who is Jewish, pointed out that Thursday is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

“Yes it is uncomfortable to talk about genocide, but it is our history and educating about it helps us not repeat this horror,” Weingarten said.

The board emphasized in the minutes that they did not object to teaching about the Holocaust but some were concerned the work was not age-appropriate.

Although they discussed redacting parts of the book, that led to copyright concerns and board members ultimately decided to look for an alternative book about the subject.
