These Guys Really Are Student Athletes

There are some great things going on at Butler University in Indianapolis these days. Their men's basketball team is ranked in the Top 25, sporting a 20-2 record, but their players are also getting the job done off the court.

Nine Butler players have been recognized as Josten's Scholar student-athletes. To qualify, athletes must achieve a 3.25 grade-point average (B-plus) in the spring or fall semester, or have a cumulative average of 3.25.

"If you're disciplined enough to go to class and you're ambitious enough to do well, you're usually going to be the same way on the basketball court," (Butler head coach Todd) Lickliter said.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
