UM drought over

First baseman Matt LaPorta swings at a pitch in UF's 14-11 victory against Miami on Sunday. LaPorta
hit three home runs in the series, including one on Sunday to give the Gators two insurance runs.


*UF TOOK A MIAMI SERIES
FOR FIRST TIME SINCE 1996.

By TIM CASEY
Alligator Writer
tcasey@alligator.org

What started bad for UF ended
much better.
The Gators took two of three
games in their weekend, series
against Miami after losing on Friday.
All three games in the series were
close, and the first two concluded
dramatically. On Sunday, UF sefht
the No. 2 Hurficanes back to Coral
Gables with a 14-11 defeat.
UF lost to Miami on Friday
9-7, but won 2-1 in 11 innings on
Saturday. A record 13,978 fans, the
most for a three-game series in UF
history, witnessed the in-state ri-
valry. '
Coach Pat McMahon talks a lot
about struggling, constant battling
and strategy. The Gators' loss Friday
night played a major role in the sub-
sequent victories.
"One of our goals in a three-game
series is to get into their bullpen in
the first game," McMahon said.


"You get to see pitchers, and as the
pitchers unfold, you can stretch that
so they can't pitch as long. That was
a huge part for us to be successful
today.

"They're a great team.
We're going to be facing
great teams all year, so
this is a good experience
for us."
Connor Falkenbach
UF pitcher

"We addressed that Friday, and
even in the loss Friday, it helped us
Saturday and today," he said. "It
was very important to put yourself
in position to take a series, and this
was the second series we've taken
this year."
The No. 15 Gators (5-2) led 12-2
after four innings, with every player
having a hit or a walk.
"In college baseball, with alu-
minum bats ... no leads are safe,"

Murder trial ends deadlocked


By MEGAN V. WINSLOW

mwinslow@alligator.org

For the second time in three
months, a jury was unable to
reach a verdict in the trial of
Willie Hudson, who is accused
of the July 2003 first-degree mur-
ders of John Adkins and Kevin
Harris.
After more than seven hours
of deliberation, Judge Mary Day
Coker read a statement prepared
by the jury foreperson.
"'We respectfully come to you
with heavy hearts to say we are
unable to. reach a unanimous
verdict,'" Goker read. "'We are a
very divided jury about the evi-
dence presented to us.'"
Family members and friends
waded through about 13 hours of
uncertainty Friday.

"I just want it to be over

announced.

the decision,
neither attorney said he was
completely surprised by the re-
sult of the three-day trial.
"It's a difficult case," Fleck
said. "The evidence is not perfect,
and it happened once before, so
I can't say it came as a complete


surprise."
Bernstein; whose defense was
based largely on an alibi provid-
ed by Hudson's wife, Selena, said
conflicting evidence presented
to the jury may have hampered
the trial.
"It's a very important issue
that the community needs a
resolution on," Bernstein said. "I
think that it's just a hotly contest-
ed, very close question, and from
my perspective, if it's been this
divided twice, it's a good indica-
tion of reasonable doubt."
On July 2, 2003, Adkins,
28, borrowed Hudson's Buick
Riviera to pick up Harris, 29, at
a friend's house to make a drug
transaction. According to the
prosecution, Hudson, 30, was in
the backseat when it arrived at

UF Dance Marathon holds
Family Day at SFCC zoo
Monkeys were not the only
ones running around at the SFCC
Teaching Zoo on Sunday.
About 500 children, students and
community members turned out for
the fourth-annual Family Day at the
Zoo, an event sponsored by Dance
Marathon at UF to raise awareness
for Children's Miracle Network at
Shands Children's Hospital.
"One of the reasons why this
event is so great is because it gives
us a chance to interact with the
children," Dance Marathon Special
Events Chairwoman Christina
Criser said. "Seeing them here re-
minds you of who you are doing
this for."
Family Day, held from 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m., featured an assortment of
carnival games campus organiza-
tions set up. Animal exhibits, clowns
and face-painting booths were just a
few festivities open to the public.
Dave Kanarek, Dance Marathon
co-operations chairman, has a more
personal connection to the event.
As an infant, Kanarek was treat-
ed at Shands for Hirschsprung's
disease, an uncommon condition
caused by a lack of neive cells in
the end of the colon. Kanarek was
one of seven miracle children who
attended.
"I got involved in Dance
Marathon last year becauseI wanted

event is a great way for supporters
of Dance Marathon to see where
there money goes."
All activities at the event were
free to the public, but donations
were encouraged.
Event sponsors said Family Day
- was a success, raising $600 that will
go toward equipment, computers,
books, games and educational ma-
terials for children at Shands.

Miami fan disrupts UF-UM game


By MEGAN V..WINSLOW
Alligator Writer
mwinslow@alligator.org

Angry about a call made by an umpire at Sunday's
UF baseball game against the University of Miami, a
student was arrested for running onto the field.
At the top of the fifth inning, Lori Christine Bailey, 19,
jumped the field fence after UM left fielder Jon Jay was
called out at third base and began yelling at the umpire,
according to a University Police report.
She is charged with trespassing, a misdemeanor, re-
ports state. An announcement before the game, as well
as posted signs around the stadium, warned fans not to
enter the field.


Bailey said she was not aware of the announcement,
reports state. She was taken to the Alachua County Jail.

UF WOMAN FENDS OFF RAPIST: A UF student's refusal
helped foil an attempted rape Saturday morning.
At about 2:30 a.m., the 21-year-old woman was sit-
ting in her car making a phone call at 1100 SW Third
Ave. when a white male snatched open her door, waved
a gun in her face and told her to undress, Gainesville
Police Department spokesman Keith Kameg said.
The woman took off her pants but refused to disrobe
further, and the man pushed her face into the passenger's
seat. She continued to refuse, and the assailant fled.
Although she was not raped, the woman was trans-
ported to a local hospital after the attack, Kameg said.


* AEPi's POKER EVENT WAS
JUST ONE OF SEVERAL BEN-
EFITING LOCAL CHARITIES.

By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org

The weekend was filled with
fundraising events and volunteer
work for several UF fraternities
and sororities.
Friday night, Alpha Epsilon Pi
fraternity held its annual Poker
All Night Long philanthropy.
The event raised about $3,000
for the Leukemia and Lymphoma
Society.
Nearly 80 students paid be-
tween $10 and $25 to enter the
poker competition, which lasted
until about 2 a.m.
A video game tournament was
held for those who weren't play-
ing poker.
"This event has a lot of things
going on to make it fun for ev-
eryone," said Danny Miller, the
fraternity's president.
UF graduate student Jonathan
Shivers entered the poker com-
petition under the "open divi-
sion," which allowed non-Greek
students the opportunity to par-
ticipate.
He said he decided to play
because he "figured it would be
a fun time and to be here for a
good cause."
Shivers only made it through
the first few hands in the com-
petition.
"The girls were the ones who
were kicking butt out there," he
said. -
Another example of week-
end philanthropy, the Pigskins
and Pigtails football game, was
organized by Delta Tau Delta
fraternity.

the total amount raised to exceed
last year's $3,000.
"The way things are going, we

Video game tournament benefits returning soldiers


* THE ARMY ROTC-SPON-
SORED EVENT RAISED $130.

By NEIL HUGHES
Alligator Writer
nhughes@alligator.org

Gainesville residents repeatedly
killed each other Saturday, all for a
good cause.
UF Army ROTC sponsored its
first-ever Halo 2 tournament to raise
money for wounded soldiers return-
ing from Iraq and Afghanistan.


Halo 2 is a first-person shooter
video game pitting humanity
against invading alien races.
The $130 raised will support the
Wounded Warrior Project's back-
pack program, said event organizer
Jonathan Oblon. Each backpack
given to returning soldiers is stocked
with comfort items such as toiletries.
Eight teams of two players par-
ticipated in the double-elimination
tournament on two XBox consoles
hooked up to 32-inch projectors.
Blockbuster Video donated the
equipment, Oblon said.


Teams were required' to pay a
$10 entry fee, but Oblon said many
of the teams voluntarily paid $20,
which allowed the fundraiser to buy
two backpacks instead of one.
"This is an opportunity to have
fun, raise money and see some of
the different things we-do up here,"
Oblon said. "Anyone who asks about
[Van Fleet] thinks it's just dorms."
Two high school students ended
up surviving--undefeated, taking
home the grand prize.
John Van, from Buchholz High
School, and Ben Johnson, from P.K.


Yonge High School, made up the
"Gainesville Dream Team." They
defeated Army ROTC members
Alex Holt and John Gillette of "Team
America," 37 kills to 26.
Van, who said he has a level-23
skill ranking in Halo 2 on Microsoft's
Internet gaming service XBox Live,
said he heard about the tournament
Saturday morning, and was asked
by a friend to fill in.
The victors and runners-up
took home plaques donated by the
UF Trophy Shop which featured a
picture of Master Chief, the game's


main character, in the heat of battle.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity
also competed in the event under
the name "Buttcheeks," as well as
the College Republicans, who were
represented by the only two females
in the tournament.
Jackie Angelo and Stephanie
Pinkovsky were eliminated in the
second round, but Angelo said she
was more familiar with the origi-
nal Halo and was unfamiliar with
changes made in Halo 2, such as a
weaker melee attack and the ability
to dual-wield weapons.

A'f''g Rooster, the -cel-
ebration began
with a traditional
Tet dinner, which included sweet
rice cakes, egg rolls and Vietnamese
chicken salad. After dinner, VSO
put on a show filled with songs,
dances, fashion shows and a skit.
"We try to spread the Vietnamese
culture through this event," said
VSO President Quang Duong.
The traditional part of the show
included a lion dance and a fashion
show of customary Vietnamese
outfits called ao dai. Li xi, money
in red envelopes given to children
for Tet, was passed out during in-
termission.
Students from the Asian
American Greek Interest Group
performed a skit about the Legend
of the Bamboo, a traditional
Vietnamese story about how the


devil ruled the countryside and
how people working the land grew
bamboo to reclaim the land.
"We wanted to do something
cultural but funny as well," said
skit coordinator Ninh Huynh.
The show also displayed
American culture with a modem
fashion show and the performance
of three songs from the musical
"Grease."
Students from Vietnamese orga-
nizations at other Florida universi-
ties attended the festival as well.
"It's a good way to get
Vietnamese students together to
learn about the culture,".USF stu-
dent Tien Nguyen said.
Master of ceremonies and VSO
member Kim Pham said students
dedicated a lot of time and effort
in organizing this show for the
biggest Vietnamese holiday of the
year. Dinner alone took four days
to prepare.
"We put in a lot of effort, but you
only get this once a year," Pham
said. "It's something we take great
pride in."
UF senior Johnny Dang said that
compared to past VSO Tet celebra-
tions, this show, which included
more English, was the best.
"Every year it just gets better
and better," he said.

Neglect of


majority is


part of SG
R recently, the'Alligator has been
filled with stories regarding
student Government. Naturally,
this is a result of the current heated
campaign, but the matter raises an in-
teresting issue. Where is the SG news
during the rest bf the year? Where are
the articles on SG's latest contribution
to the student body, whether it be bet-
ter food at Gator Dining, increased
Web access or, perhaps, a refund of
some fees?
The truth is, stories about SG are
absent because there is no news to re-
port. SG members rest on their laurels
all year, playing at government and
patting themselves on the back while
waiting for the election. When the
election comes around, they pull out
their mighty rhetoric regarding their
concern for "the issues" and desire to
work for the- average student. Sadly,
these words aren't put into action.
The closest a party has come to atten-
tion-grabbing legislation is the Impact
Scott Gilton Party's push for
Speaking Out online voting.
In this case, it
seems SG thinks
very little of the student body's intel-
ligence. Otherwise, why would they
attempt to garner glory by proposing
online voting when it should've been
implemented back in 2002? If we can
register for a class online, there is no
reason we shouldn't be able to vote
online. But they wait until election
time to raise the issue, so it will appear
they are working hard for us.
Without a doubt, these statements
will raise hackles in SG. Naturally, the
members of SG would take offense to
the achievements they have wrought
within the past year being cast aside
in this manner. And while it is true
they made some steps forward for the
student body in the past, they haven't
done nearly enough considering what
they have to work with: SG has an an-
nual budget in excess of $10 million.
SG needs to start making things
happen for the whole of the student
body. While some may argue that SG
contributes to this campus by provid-
ing funds for student organizations,
this is no excuse for neglecting the
majority. It is unjust to insist that stu-
dents who pay what could be defined
as taxes every semester to SG become
involved in extracurricular activities in
order to benefit from SG expenditures.
An analogy to this would be never
repairing the roads in Gainesville, and
instead, demanding that the residents
of this town participate in the local
theater troupe in order to benefit from
their payment to their government.
It is time for the student body to in-:
sist that our SG ultimately represents
all of us, not just special interests. It is.
time to demonstrate through e-mail,
letters or even personal meetings that
SG must do something for all of us.
Look to become involved. .Try to
get on an SG committee. Most impor-
tantly, make your presence known to
our representatives and show them
they must endorse the students over
the status quo. It's the least we can do
for ourselves and our money.

tial caiididate.


Viewpoints


SG only works
A s the student body finds itself at
the threshold of another Student
Government campaign season, some
will follow the discourse with interest, others
will try to filter out any mention of the cam-
paigns and the majority of you will watch from
the sidelines with varying degrees of concern,
amusement, disgust, dismay or enthusiasm.
Most students understand the importance
of the issues and agree they deserve attention
- issues such as impending tuition hikes, ques-
tions of campus culture, the goal to be a Top 10
public research institution and the allocation of
a few zillion-dollars of Activity & Service Fees,

Jess Johnson to name a few. If these
Speaking Out issues are so important,
why are you willing to
watch from the stands and not be involved?
Government is not a spectator sport or, ef-
fective government is not. It is too easy for us to
fall into the trap of believing the institutions sur-
rounding us are ineffective, overly bureaucratic
and corrupt, and it is difficult to get up in the
morning, roll up one's sleeves and dig into the
mire to try and make our world better. Whether
we are talking about student, city, county, state
or federal government, it is too easy to talk
about "them," "those people" or "The Man."

Aren't we all armchair quarterbacks? Whether
we are talking about our representatives in gov-

Andy Lopez once said the further you are from

But to become engaged, to become active

Editorial


In your hands


Students must vote to

bring about SG change
Imagine you stayed up late writing a massive paper. You
knew it was going to count for 20 percent of your final grade,
but you were too busy rearranging your iTunes folders to get
it started.
You save what you have on a disk and hustle to the bus
stop only to find 30 other students waiting there without a bus.
Two or three buses go by without stopping, the students inside
crammed in well past the white line, while you stand there in
the blazing heat.
Finally, you get on campus, but your time is running short.
You can't make those revisions you wanted, but you think
you can duck into the CIRCA lab and print it out in time.
Unfortunately, the line extends out the door. Your class period
begins right as you finally sit down at a computer, though you
only even got that far because you sucked it up and tried to use
a Mac for once. You might even have made it in time if your pro-
fessor would have let you into the classroom late, but everyone
from that earlier line reconvened in front of the printer.
At UF, most students don't have to imagine scenarios like
this. They live them every day.
The point is, students can take it upon themselves to fix these
and other common student issues. In fact, there is an entire or-
ganization based upon this concept: Student Government.
Unfortunately, students are not participating in SG, and they
are paying for it. Because students don't vote and don't work
to see that representative parties get elected, the interests of the
average member of the student body are not taken into account.
The elite few determine how the millions of student dollars are
spent, and they make those decisions based on what will fur-
ther their own interests.
Students: you do not have to take this quietly. There is some-
thing you can do about it, and it is very simple:
Get out there and vote.
Even better, participate yourself.
If you sit around and complain that SG always is the same,
always is controlled by the same people and never can be differ-
ent, you're just helping to keep the status quo in place.
The numbers are clear: SG elections are won and lost by a
small percentage of the student body, while the vast majority sit
at home. If even a-fraction of these students took the 10 minutes
out of their day to vote, they could change the whole landscape
of SG.
Do you think the same old people run the university every
semester? Vote for someone else.
Do you think SG spends your money on student organiza-
tions that no one cares about but their members? Letthem know
that you want it spent on issues that affect the average student.
Instead of bands that you don't want to see, events you don't
want to attend and free rides for SG members to resume-build-
ing conferences, wouldn't you like to see improvements to bus
routes, expansion of CIRCA labs, and credit card use in the Reitz
Union?
Even simpler complaints can be met if students work to in-
stall officials who will listen to them.
Have you ever had a hold on your registration because you
owed $1.16 for copies? You can elect representatives that will
use SG funding to allow free copies.
Or maybe you think SG takes too much of students' money
in the first place. If so, demand candidates who will call for re-
funds of the surplus perhaps in the form of tuition credit.
If you can think of these and all of the other ways in which
your money could be better spent by SG, then you can take the
time out to work toward accomplishing them.
The SG system is set up to help you, but you have to partici-
pate for your concerns to be heard.

Column

'Axis of evil' looks to get two additions


relatively few Americans will ever even vacation
abroad, let alone learn the particular and often
peculiar politics in each region of the world. Many
simply don't have the time, will or education to grasp
global politics and their implications. To these people,
even trying to understand it can feel like falling into a
well.
Thankfully, to help us along, we have our president,
George W. Bush. No, that's not really a joke.
One of the president's most important duties is to
present global politics, and our position within them, in
a framework that can be easily understood and digested
by most Americans. Bush is following in former president
Reagan's footsteps by presenting this framework as a duel
between two opposing teams. For years, the game was
between capitalism and communism.
Now, Bush has framed the contest as between freedom
and tyranny good and evil.
Although this framework makes politics feel more fa-
miliar, like a sporting match, it just doesn't seem adequate
to describe international politics today. To me, it seems
increasingly hard to discern friend from foe one side
from the other.
Radical Islamic states are of course the obvious en-
emies, but they might not be the most dangerous.
Russia is one player in global politics that is confound-
ing. Bush repeatedly has told us Russia is a friend in the
war on terror, but Russian President Vladimir Putin reiter-
ated his commitment on Friday to helping Iran with its
nuclear program.
Putin says he is convinced Iran does not intend to de-
velop atomic weapons. He is lying.
Why wouldn't Iran make a nuclear weapon? With a
nuke, Iran would be treated with kid gloves like North
Korea. Without one, it can be rolled over like Iraq. The
choice is clear. What isn't so clear is why Russia is help-
ing Iran.
Putin has been consolidating his power for some time
now. He has cancelled elections for provincial governors,


increased the state's control over
the television networks and used
the courts to prosecute political


opponents.
He could be using a relation-
ship with Iran as a threat against
Jason Levitt Washington interference. Putin's
The Watchtower threat is that Iran could become
letters@allitor.or a nuclear power quickly if Bush
wants to mess with his rise and
consolidation of power.
Putin also is helping another so-called friend of
America China. According to a recent New York Times
article, Russia is selling a lot of military equipment to
China. China is using Russia's help to expand its military
and gain power in the region.
Porter J. Goss, U.S. director of central intelligence,
said to the Senate Armed Services Committee, "Beijing's
military modernization and military buildup could tilt the
balance of power in the Taiwan Strait. Improved Chinese
capabilities threaten U.S. forces in the region."
Soon after Goss' strong words came an unprecedented
joint statement from the United States and Japan concern-
ing Taiwan.
The administration definitely is sending a strong mes-
sage to China, but will it be effective? America may find it
tough to deal firmly with China in the long term, consid-
ering the United States had a trade deficit with China of
$162 billion in 2004. According to MSNBC, it is the largest
trade imbalance ever recorded with a single country. This
means China has the United States in an extremely vulner-
able economic position.
It seems the most dangerous potential enemies are
the ones Bush is too afraid to name. Confrontations with
Russia and China seem to be becoming unavoidable, how-
ever. It looks like soon Bush or the next American presi-
dent may have to add two spokes to the "axis of evil."

Letter to the Editor
Students shouldn't stand idly by SG
Editor: Isn't it wonderful that Student
Government has devolved into a circus so
blatantly everyone can see it? It'd be fun-
ny if it weren't so sad. A bunch of Impact
supporters jump ship to the Joe Goldberg
(Gator) Party. Who's surprised?
Scan your memory banks (or the
Alligator archives), and you will recall
the absolute fiasio that Goldberg was
responsible for as Student Senate presi-
dent, which included one ugly incident in
which he pretended not-to hear notions
from Access senators. Very professional.


The frightening thing is that Goldberg
is likely to win the election. The Impact
mutiny only is the most.obvious'sign of
the back-door politics that have become
the only necessity to win an SG election.
Get the pieces lined up straight7grease the
right palms and the contest is over. The
students of UF have set the bar this low.
Pay attention, students: SG might re-
semble Alien v. Predator "No matter
who wins, we lose" but let's not be

plain but difficult to contribute. It's easy to
dismiss others' viewpoints but difficult to -
listen to one another. But we must remem-
ber the things in life which are most difficult
often are the most rewarding. Thomas
Edison said, "Opportunity is missed by
most people because it is dressed in overalls
and looks like work." For us to build a better
campus and community, we can't have the
majority of students sitting on the sidelines.
Should you follow the elections? Yes, but
why read the headlines when you could
make them? Why be content to complain
about the direction of the discussion when
you could contribute yourself? You don't
need to be a candidate to have that kind of
influence either. Talk to those around you


- voice your concerns, your thoughts, your
ideas and your passions. Let's break the
mold of allowing political discourse to take
place in the form of 10-second sound bites
and pull-quotes. Let's show true leadership
- not the type that comes with position, but
the type that comes with conviction.
My hope is that, beginning with this
small SG election in Gainesville, our gen-
eration will take a stand for engagement, for
rolling up those sleeves, for getting to work,
for tackling the tough issues, for working to-
gether. This is your home. UF and the com-
munity need each one of you to contribute if
we are to realize the solutions to our many
pressing issues. Are you willing to pick up
your bat and approach the plate, or will you
sit idly by and ride the pine again?
Jess Johnson is a former Student Senate
president.

Hudson was on trial for 2003 double homicide


HUDSON, from page 1


the house, at 1210 NE Fifth Ave.
In his testimony before the court,
resident Edward Ricks said the Buick
immediately began "rocking like some-
one was trying to bust out the win-
dows," then peeled off down the street.
Several gunshots were heard just before
the vehicle plowed into the steps of City
Commissioner Craig Lowe's porch, at
1034 NE Fifth Ave.
The driver, Adkins, had been shot in
the back of the head. Harris, with one
shot to the neck and two to the chest, lay
slumped across the Buick's center con-
sole. Police found a .38-caliber revolver
under him.
Adkins later died of his injuries.
Prosecutors said Hudson planned
to rob Harris of approximately $8,000
in cash, but Harris fought back. In the
struggle, Hudson allegedly shot Harris
three times, and a stray bullet hit Adkins
in the back of the head.
The state contested Hudson left the
scene on foot with the money and co-
caine and hitched a ride from Anthony
Anderson, an employee at the Martin


Luther King Center two blocks away
from the incident. Hudson arrived back
at Adkins' apartment just after 11 p.m.,
took a shower and dried off with a green
towel, Fleck said.
Analysis of the towel found DNA
from Hudson, Adkins, Harris and an
unknown female, investigators testified.
During closing arguments, Bemstein
pointed out that the state's DNA experts
were unable to determine what type of
body fluid from which the DNA,which
isn't contained only in
blood, had come.
According to Selena
Local Hudson, she and her hus-
CO c r band were in the Orlando
area on the day of the
killings, Bernstein said,
and the fact that Hudson's DNA was
found on the towel does not indicate
otherwise.
"What the green towel proves is that it
came in contact with those four people at
some time," Bernstein said. "Remember,
DNA goes back to dinosaurs it can last
that long and we know that four'people
have DNA on that towel, and that there
were only three at the scene. Who's the
odd man out?"
The "odd man out" may be a woman


named JadquelynJennings, 22.
During her testimony Wednesday,
Jennings said she gave Hudson a ride
from Gainesville to Lake Wales the day
after the murders.
But Jennings, a five-time felon, has
a propensity to lie, and her testimony
should not be trusted, Bernstein said.
Other inconsistencies in the state's
case arose.
Crime scene photographs show the
Buick's backseat splattered with blood
on the driver's side. But based on the
lack of blood on the passenger's side,
someone must have been sitting there,
and he or she should haVe been equally
covered in blood, said Marc Trahan,
Gainesville Police crime scene investi-
gator.
No forensic evidence from either vic-
tim or Hudson was found in Anderson's
car.
For now, both the state and the de-
fense are awaiting the third round of the
trial, tentatively scheduled for March.
"The bottom line is, you still have
two people who were killed, and we
believe the person responsible for the
deaths should be held accountable," said
Spencer Mann, spokesman for the State
Attorney's Office.


Houses orthopaedics

BONESHOP, from page 1

College of Medicine, said patients in need of or-
thopaedic care no longer have to travel between
many specialized offices in Gainesville.
"We're able to treat all aspects of orthopaedic
disease under one roof," he said.
State Sen. Rod Smith called the institute one of
the finest in Florida.
"My pledge to you is that we, the legislature
of Florida, will continue funding centers of excel-
lence," Smith said at the ceremony.
Also during the opening ceremony, William
Anspach Jr. was awarded the Distinguished
Achievement Award, which has only been given
to 11 other UF alumni.
Anspach was a practicing orthopaedic surgeon
who, whenever confronted with a lack of tools,
built his own.
"We didn't make them to make a buck,"
Anspach said. "We built them to help the patient."
In 1978, Anspach founded The Anspach Effort
Inc., which is still building medical equipment.
Anspach holds 20 patents for surgical tools that
make surgery safer and more efficient.

Free throws lead to UF defeat at LSU

By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

BATON ROUGE, La. As junior forward
vlatt Walsh laid on the floor wincing, a mixture
)f boos and cheers emanated from the hostile Pete
viaravich Assembly Center crowd. >
With UF down by 2 and just 37 seconds re- O
naining, Walsh attempted -to hustle his team back
rom a one-time 10-point deficit, chasing down a
ong rebound.
That's as close as UF (16-7, 8-4 Southeastemrn
Conference) came to stealing a SEC road vic-
.ory before falling to Louisiana State 77-73 on
Saturday.
"I'm anxious to see how a guy like
David Lee gets 14 shots, 21 points O
and he gets to the free-throw line
three times."
Billy Donovan
UF basketball coach


A head-on collision with charging LSU guard
Darrel Mitchell sent Walsh to the hardwood and
che ball to the Tigers. And as the Gators desperate- E
ty fouled, the Tigers made Walsh's bodily martyr-
ization in vain, capping a 29-15 free-throw-points M0
advantage in the waning seconds.
"I don't know what caught me in the face,"
3aid Walsh, who finished with 17 points. "But
.ny neck snapped back, and I got pummeled in
:he head."
That's a familiar feeling for the victims of the o
?hygical Tigers (15-8, 8-4 SEC).
A?6-foot-9 and 310 pounds, LSU freshman
~-r Glen Davis joined sophomore Brandon 0)
3ass in muscling his way to the free-throw line.
"It's difficult because they're two big guys, and
they'ree coming straight ahead, full speed every
time," UF freshman Corey Brewer said.
Bass scored a game-high 27 points on 8-for-10
shooting and burned the Gators at the line, mak--
ng 10 of 13 free throws.
Davis scored five of his 11 from the stripe.

Columnist, Miami coach say UF-Miami rivalry


UF short


in SEC
By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

Round one is over and no knock-
out punch was thrown.
And though the UF swimming
and diving teams came up short
in their quest for a Southeastern
Conference championship, both
know their season is far from over.
Unable to take home the SEC
crown, the Gators are still standing
strong after a fierce fight. The men
came within 28 points of nine-time
defending champion Auburn with
801.5 total points.
On the other side, the women
finished the meet in third place
with 659 total points. Auburn took
the crown again, for the third con-
secutive year, with Georgia a close
second. With both teams showing
signs of improvement, Coach Gregg
Troy knows how
close his teams
were and is look-
ing forward to a
second chance.
"Our focus is
always the end
of the year," Troy
said. "There's
Troy always a level of
disappointment, but it's not the end
of the season. It was a goal, but cer-
tainly not the only goal."
Although the Gators may not
have achieved the desired results,
they still continued on one sig-
nificant trend: breaking conference
record times. And if you're junior

is 'good baseball'


It seems that too often in sports,
games don't live up to their
hype. Most Super Bowls are
)oring, and the media hypes that
;ame up for two weeks 24/7,
nonetheless.
Then you have Miami-UF base-
)all. I really didn't expect this series
:o be as exciting as it was. It's early
n the year, so the series essentially
neans nothing.
Try telling that to the series-re-
:ord 13,978 fans that attended the
amqn.


Boy, did
they get a
treat., All
three games
were excit-
ing, even
lan Fisher with one
Extra lannings being a 2-1
iflsher@alligator.org pitcher 's
duel and
another
appearing to be a blowout before
Miami made it respectable.
"We could've won any of the


three games just like they won two
out of three," Miami coach Jim
Morris said. "They've been close
games.
"That seems the way it is against
the Gators, but that's good base-
ball."
It was great baseball excit-
ing .baseball. Parts were sloppy
(13 Miami walks and five Miami
wild pitches on Sunday) and parts
were impressive (sophomore Matt
LaPorta's three home runs in three
games).


While neither coach would say
if they'd like to see each other in the
postseason, any baseball fan would.
Miami ended TUF's champion-
ship hopes the past three seasons,
but the Gators are better this year.
That's not my assessment. I have no
idea, and it's too early in the season.
That's Morris' opinion.
He said the Gators are better
than they were last season, despite
losing key players like pitcher Justin
Hoyman and hitters Ben Harrison
and C.J. Smith.


Should the baseball gods align
everything right, UF will face Miami
again in the postseason. If that's the
case, one Gators player has an idea
of how the game will unravel.
"It's going to be a war like you
saw the last three games," catcher
Brian Jeroloman said. "We're up 12-
2, and they come back and almost tie
up the game."
It's good baseball when a game
seems so far out of reach that fans
leave, then only two innings later,

McMahon said. "You've got to give our oppo-
sition credit. They swung the bats to get back
in the game."
During the bottom of the fourth inning,
OutKast's "The Way You Move" had UF
players smiling and moving with the beat in
the dugout. The Hurricanes moved, too, (8-2)
scoring five runs in the fifth and three more
runs in the sixth to narrow the gap to 12-10.
"I [tried] not to think 'here we go again,'
but I respect that they could come back," UF
right fielder Brian Leclerc said. "We trust our


pitching; we have good arms." Leclerc went
3 for 5 with one RBI in the game and 5 for 12
with three RBI in the series.
UF first baseman Matt LaPorta answered
in the sixth inning, belting a two-run homer
over the left-field bleachers.
"I knew I had to hit because I struck out
twice," LaPorta said. "Coach told me not to
worry about it, put them in the past. He told

the difference.
"I'm anxious to see how a guy like

Donovan said. "And a guy like Brandon
Bass gets to the line 13 times."
But Donovan stressed that he wasn't
criticizing the officials.
"I'm not passing judgment because
sometimes after a loss, you can get emo-
tional and say things the next day you'll
regret," Donovan said.
Even with the free-throw disparity, UF
kept close as Lee scored at will inside.
After LSU claimed a 6-pointlead on a 9-
0 first-half-closing run, Lee scored 11 of his
team-high 21 points in the second quarter.
"The whole game there, I really felt
like I was in a rhythm on both ends of the
floor," Lee said. "So it's frustrating being

But with UF trailing by 3, Roberson
missed one of two foul. shots with 9.8
seconds left, and the Tigers rode their foul
shots to victory,.
"I would've bet my life that Peep is go-
ing to make that free thircv.," Walsh said.
"When Peep is on the line, I don't even
think about the fact that he could miss."
Donovan, however, didn't fault
Roberson and remained positive about
the offense-savvy Gators to fight through
shooting slumps.:
"Anthony Roberson has had-so many
big performance games," Donovan said.
"If he doesn't shoot as good as he normally
does, you till haei. to fund \, a, to win.
"So to me it was an encouraging sign
that we were still in a position toclose it
out."


Senior right-hander Connor Falkenbach
pitched 1.2 innings in relief to close the game.
"They're a great team. We're going to be
facing great teams all year,
so this is a good experience
for us," Falkenbach said.
"We have high confidence
now. We just gotta keep it

Perez fell to 2-1 after the loss. Boss pitched five

in the sixth inning and allowed three hits and
three earned runs in 2.1 innings.
Miami third-base coach Gino DiMare was
ejected in the top of the fifth for arguing with
umpire Tony Walsh when Miami's Jon Jay was
thrown out at third after hitting a double.
Miami does have -good things to look
forward to this week as it will no longer be
under NCAA probation on Feb. 26. Miami

But one thing is clear they really liked the

"I do know this," McMahon said. "I really
enjoy competing in this series. It's a fun series

perform in."
It's fun to watch, too. One more time this

Gators continue to break SEC records


SWIM, from page 14


Ryan Lochte,. capturing
another American and U.S.
Open record. Lochte. broke
the 200-yard backstroke re-
cord with a time of 1.3S.2..
nearly a second below the old
record.
Going into the event,
Lochte said he was not ex-
pecting to break the record.
:"I just wanted to go about-
1:40 and get close to the re-
cord," Lochte said. "I touched


the wall and looked up and it
-said 1:38. I couldn't believe it.
I just went out there and raced
tough."
Lochte was not the only
one to break a record Saturday-
night. In the last event of the
competition; the 400 freestyle
relay, Lochte led off with
fre-rhmen Darian Townsend
and Daniel Penniman to fol-
low and senior Adam Sioui
bringing up. the last leg. At
this p.:'int LT's men's relay
teams had already broken
three SEC records, and the


400 free added another. The
Gators took first place with a
SEC-record time of 2:50.68.
"Especially with the sprint
relays, you just put your head
down and go as fast as you
can," Sioui said. "I love hav-
ing the pressure at the end,
being the last leg. We wanted
to break the school record; we
didn't really know what the
SEC record was. We knew
Auburn was a good team, but
whenever I get a lead I try not
to lose it and haven't lost one
yet."

UF ROUNDUP

Vanderbilt stands firm, stifles Gators comeback


The UF women's basketball team
lagged behind from the start and
never came back, falling to No. 22
Vanderbilt 76-69 on Sunday. -
It seems in each loss, UF (14-11,
5-7 SEC) has had chances to win late,
and this game was no exception.
In the second half, the
Commodores (19-6, 8-4 SEC) were
up by as much as 14 before the
Ga,-s mounted a run. After a steal,
UF junior Sarah Lowe's three-point
play off a layup made. the score 62-
59 with 5:11 on the clock.
UF had another chance when
Lowe hit two more free throws with
58 seconds remaining. But coming
up the floor and working the shot
clock, Vanderbilt forward Carla
Thomas appeared to be blocked
clean by UF senior guard Tamia
Williams. The officials disagreed,
and Vanderbilt sealed the victory
with free throws.
Coach Carolyn Peck, who cred-
ited Williams and senior forward
Tashia Morehead for "putting every-
thing on the floor," said she thought
the Gators could pull out a win.


"I thought we had put ourselves
back in a position to make this a
ballgame," Peck said. "Then Carla
Thomas comes down with two sec-
onds left to go and.we foul her."
Morehead and Williams both
played well despite ailments.
Morehead, who
scored 11 points,
was hit in the
throat early in
the second half.
Williams had a
sore right foot but
hit five 3-pointers'
to lead UF with
Williams 22 points.
The Gators are now in a dan-
gerous position as they head into
their final games against No. 16
Georgia at home on Thursday
and No. 1 LSU on Sunday. UF
will likely need to at least split
the games for a shot at the NCAA
Tournament.
While not calling Thursday's
game a 'must win', Peck said UF
still has chances to write an NCAA
Tournament resume.


"I feel like we have to win on
Thursday because we have to prove
to ourselves that we can go out and
finish the deal and play hard," Peck
said. "That's the most important
thing. Right now there are plenty
of games to be played ... and I'm
not going to put that pressure on
this team."

MICHAEL MAURINO

GYMNASTICS WINS: If versatility is
what the Gators wanted to exhibit,
then the message was heard loud
and clear.
Using routines from ten different
gymnasts, No. 4 UF (9-2, 4-1 SEC)
defeated No. 11 Arkansas (5-4, 2-3
SEC) 196.075-195.575 on Friday
night in Fayetteville.
The Gators have won five con-
secutive meets since falling to LSU
in mid-January.
"I think it was a great meet,"
Coach Rhonda Faehn said.
"Especially considering the circum-
stances they encountered, lineup
changes, but they all came out and


did a phenomenal job."
UF is now 6-0 against the
Razorbacks since Arkansas' gym-
nastics program joined the SEC
three seasons ago.
Leading the way for the Gators
was sophomore Katie Rue, who
won her first col-
legiate all-around
title with a score
of 39.175.
Rue wasn't
inserted into the'
all-around until
the warm-up pe-
'riod before UF's
Rue first event.
"She's very strong mentally,"
Faehn said. "Katie stepped up and"
did a phenomenal job all the way
around. I was very proud of her per-
formance and calm attitude."
Rue'- entry into the all-around
came at the expense of sophomore
Savannah Evans, who sat out both
uneven bars and balance beam after
battling the flu-all week.
She made the most of her rou-
tines, however, earning her first

of 9.925 and finishing second on
floor exercise.
The Gators claimed every event
except floor exercise, and showed its
prowess as the nation's No. 1 vault
squad, tallying a high score of 49.30
on the event.
Freshman Tiffany Murry made
a big splash in her return to the un-
even bars lineup, scoring a 9.875 to
take the event win.
"She really [responded to the
challenge]," Faehn said. "We've
really been asking more of her;
she does need to step it up. She
did a nice routine on-bars and did
a great job on vault as well, and

tivated and get her back on floor

flourish, claiming her first event title
of the season on balance beam with
a score of 9.875.
