Asian-American affairs post on Dean's 'wish list'
By EMILY YEHLE
Following changes in UF's administration,
officials are debating.the creation of a director of
Asian-American Affairs and an assistant dean
of Multicultural and Diversity Affairs.
But administrators are stressing that the is-
sue is currently an "internal" affair.
While Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president of
Student Affairs, was recently reorganizing her
department, Dean of Students Gene Zdziarski
gave her a "wish list" of 10 positions he felt his
office should employ.
His support for an Asian-American Affairs
director and a multicultural director is nothing
new; he said he has supported both, especially
the latter, since he first took office. However,
Student Affairs is a new ball game since Telles-
Irvin took the top position in October.
"She's been looking at the division of
Student Affairs, and I saw it as an opportunity
to put forward my vision," Zdziarski said. "It's
part of trying to inform her what have been is-
sues here in the division so she can begin to
make her priorities."
But Zdziarski's requests would affect a
budget that hasn't been set yet, and admin-
istrators don't even know if they'll have the
funds for any of the 10 po-
sitions, said Dave Kratzer,
Associate vice president for
Based on national
statistics, Zdziarski sug-
gested a $56,250 salary for
the multicultural director
Telles-Irvin and $43,750 for the Asian-
American Affairs director, including benefits.
Zdziarski said he and Telles-Irvin have
had discussions about his requests, but he
added that everything is preliminary.
Telles-Irvin could not be reached for com-
ment about whether UF President Bernie
Machen has seen the list.
Asian Student Union President Mark
Villegas said his organization has contacted
Machen several times about the need for
more resources, including a March 2004
proposal for an Institute of Asian-American

Liz Murray speaks at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday in honor of Women's His-
tory Month. Murray is internationally known as the girl who went from homelessness to Harvard.
'Homeless to Harvard' to UF
By LINDSAY TAULBEE
When Liz Murray was a child, holidays came 12
times a year on the first day of each month when
the welfare check came.
She, with her parents and older sister, would head
out from their Bronx apartment to eat at McDonald's.
Then, she said, the four would go to the "drug spot"
where her parents bought drugs, and then to buy $30
worth of groceries to last the month.
"It's a drug addict's budgeting," she said.
Murray, 24, spoke to an audience of about 300
in the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on
Wednesday, recounting experiences that included
becoming homeless at 15 and losing her mother to
AIDS at age 16. While still homeless, she finished four
years of high school in two, won a New York Times
scholarship and was accepted to Harvard University.
In 2003, Lifetime made a movie chronicling Murray's
life, called "From Homeless to Harvard."
Despite her circumstances, Murray said she
didn't want to demonize her parents, becoming tear-
ful as she talked about her mother's death.
"The love that we had between us, it was real,"
she said. "I heard the words 'I love you' from my
mother on a daily basis."
Her mother's death served as a
On turning point in her life, she said, after
Campus which she began to be honest with
"The point of this is not Harvard. That just makes
you pay attention," she said.
In an interview before the speech, Murray said
she hoped students would each take away what they
needed from her story, whether it be a new perspec-
tive or a different approach.to life.
The speech was sponsored by Women's History
Month and Accent, UF's speaker's bureau.

Gator wins, but not by a
convincing enough tally
ust when you thought you finally had heard the last of the
Student Government elections, the one word that can strike
fear into the hearts of election-weary students and journal-
ists alike has been uttered.
Get ready for another week of campaigning, complaining
and showers of fliers coming from overly-chipper party mem-
bers and volunteers in solid-colored t-shirts..
Because no parties received more than 50 percent of the
vote, the two parties that received the most votes, the Gator
Party and the Impact Party, will compete in a head-to-head
showdown next week to see who gets to take the top leader-
ship positions in SG.
Fortunately, this means that any students who had trouble
deciding between parties will now have their choices reduced
to two clearly-defined opposing sides.
Last year, a runoff election owing primarily to the sur-
prising influence of the "Win or Lose, We Booze" Keg Party
- helped widen the Access Party's lead from a slim nod to a
clear mandate over the incumbent Innovate Party.
This year, the Progress Party, despite its good intentions
and focus on student representation, has been relegated to
Gator may have won the initial vote, but the runoff election
will be a clean slate in which the vote counts from the previous
two days will have no relevance.
Now that Progress no longer is in contention, its support-
ers will have to determine which of the other two parties has
beliefs on what is best for the students that are closest to their
Which way they will go is impossible to guess at this
In addition, the approximately 39,000 students who did not
vote out of the about 48,000 total students at UF will have
a chance to weigh in.
If you don't feel like doing the math, that means that about
20 percent of students took the five minutes out of their sched-
ule to vote.
It seems to us that students have been writing in to us for
weeks because they were concerned that a certain small per-
centage have been controlling SG.
We suppose the rain washed all of that indignation away'
when it came time to take action. Next week, the students once
again will be called upon to ensure they are represented fairly
and equally in SG.
Students can use the additional time afforded them by the
runoff to take a hard look at the two parties, their platforms
and their values sort of like all of the extra studying you do
when you find out that a huge exam has been pushed back a
Well, we can hope.
And if you still can't decide which party to support, of
course, you can be sure the Alligator editorial board will be
here to tell you who we think will represent you best.
So, a final word for the Gator Party: Congratulations on
your victory, but don't get caught up in the celebrations.
You've proven that you have what it takes to win the overall
election, but you can't let up if you want to take the runoff and
head into office.
To the Impact Party: You've made it this far, but you have a
lot of work to do to catch up to Gator.
And if.both parties commit to campaigning hard enough-
with some encouragement from Progress-there still is a
chance of a legitimately-representative election to take place.

Yeah, I know all of you bookworms over in the Classics
department just got a rise out of that idea.
Or worse, we'll start having to resort to other lan-
guages for party names. I'd love to see the faces on the
Mexican-American Student Association members when
the iAndale!iAndale!iArriba! Party rolls through looking
for their support.

Speaking Out "Alligator" would imply the
name of this esteemed publication,
which-would cause SG officials to
spontaneously vomit upon hearing the suggestion.
Another possibility is to use brand names and slogans
to capitalize on the free publicity, a la the Gator Party. We

could use more help from students which

Florida Blue Key accusations unfounded
Editor: Florida Blue K-\ r:ecintll, has been
attacked, defamed and deemed an organiza-
tion that promotes unethical practices and
control over Student. Government elections.
These are unfounded criticisms and meritless
misconceptions of an organization that has
served UF with dignity for the past 80 years.
FBK was founded in 1923 in an effort to
bring student leaders together to form an
organization that would recognize leadership
and promote service to the university.
Not only does FBK sponsor many student
activities, but it also prides itself .in bringing
togetherleaders from every aspect of campus.
There are no smoke-filled rooms where deals
are cut or talk of controlling student politics.
SThe Alligator alleges that FBK. members
are interconnected and conspire to confuse
students and mislead the public. The last time
I checked, interacting with people in your own
student organization is not a crime. Drawing
maps of coincidence are as ridiculous as say-
ing that because President Bush and British
Prime Minister Tony Blair play golf together,
they are aspiring to take over the world.
My challenge to those of you who continue
to criticize and berate FBK is to get involved,
educate yourselves and take a moment to
reshape your perceptions. As of last Tuesday,
FBK Divisions had a small number of applica-
tions with dozens of positions yet to be filled.
Each semester, FBK seeks qualified leaders
to apply for membership. Strong candidates,
Greek or not, will be offered spots.
All of this is further proof that FBK is not an
elitist organization nor does it seek one-dimen-
sional leaders. FBK has served UF for decades
and will continue 'to do so in the future with
the highest of integrity and commitment.

Incumbent desires city growth
Editor's note: This is the second
in a series taking a closer look at
candidates for the Gainesville City
Commission District 3 seat.
By STEPHANIE GARRY
Alligator Staff Writer
Tony Domenech knows firsthand
that not all UF students are just pass-
ing through Gainesville.
The Key West native of Cuban
descent and District 3 incumbent
came to UF for his bachelor's degree
in the 1960s, and, other than serving
two years in Vietnam, he has lived
in Gainesville ever since. Lynn, his
wife and high school sweetheart, and
daughter Jocelyn are UF grads as well.
His longstanding ties with UF
ensure that he's in tune with student
needs a critical point considering the
mass of students concentrated in his
strictc, the area west and southwest of
Though Domenech's hometown
'ha; remained constant, his work life
nas taken a varied course. From a
,pecial-education teacher and football
coich to the owner of a nationally re-
uected software company, Domenech
:-id one thing has united his life's
"If you look at what I've done for 30
vpears, it's served people," Domenech
-aid, including his latest stint as a city
cor mnissioner. "It's just the next sort of
evolution for Tony Domenech. It's con-
sistent with what I've been doing."
On the Commission, serving people
means helping Gainesville's economy
thrive and keeping government expen-
ditures reasonable, Domenech said:
Like everyone else, his experiences
have shaped his views about public
service, but starting a business with his
wife stands out for him.
"It's virtually impossible to really
know what that's like (without doing
it)," Domenech said.
"I was at The Swamp (Res-
taurant) last night. I'm just a
regular guy, I don't have. any
airs about me."
District 3 city commissioner
The commissioner sold his 1967
Austin Healey for $3,500 to raise funds
for the company in the 1980s. His wife
quit her job as a .teacher, cutting the
family of four's income in half as they
tried to get the educational software
company off the ground.
"It's one thing to have a company
like a lot of people have" as a second-
ary source of income, Domenech said.
"But it's another thing entirely to have
a company that's your sole source of
Twenty years later, the software's
curriculum was nationally recognized
as the best in its educational niche.
The Domeneches sold it in 2000, and
though his wife has gone on to start a
home-care business with her daughter,
Domenech has been a retiree except
for his work on the Commission.
"I haven't done anything since then
except follow my dreams," he said
Running for a second term,
Domenech sees plenty of unfinished
business in his new endeavor. He
counts a major accomplishment in
doubling the city's expenditures on
road maintenance, but said he believes
the figure will have to double again be-
fore Gainesville's streets are properly
Responsible government means
spending money where citizens want it
- such as roadways but it also means
cutting waste. Gainesville's police and
fire forces are hiring and training new
officers only to see them quit and take
other jobs, which Domenech sees as a
poor investment for the city.
It's things like streets and police
that keep Domenech passionate about
a second term. Government is unbe-
lievably slow, but good ideas are out
there, he said.
When he first started on the com-
mission, he worked 60 to 80 hours a
week, learning the government jargon
and the background of issues that
came before the commission in four-
"The learning curve is incredibly
steep," he said.
Though he's better-prepared now,
he still has more time to spend on city
issues than other commissioners, who
often have full or part-time jobs.
Although Domenech serves on a
number of local boards, Domenech
said he has the personal and profes-
sional experience to help the city grow
and the UF ties to relate to students'
"I was at The Swamp (Restaurant)
last night," he said. "I'm just a regular
guy, I don't have any airs about me."
Tony Domenech, a UF graduate, is the incumbent Gainesville
City Commissioner representing District 3.

Sides rest in Hudson trial
By ELIZABETH PRANN and
MEGAN V. WINSLOW
Despite a surprising motion for dismissal,
both the state and defense rested Wednesday
afternoon in the third murder trial of Willie
James Hudson, 30.
Defense attorney Stephen N. Bernstein
argued that, based on a lack of concrete
evidence to prove John Adkins, 28, and
Kevin Harris, 29, were killed during a drug
deal, the charge against Hudson should be
reduced from first-degree murder to second-
By law, a defendant is charged with first-
degree murder- if the crime was pre-medi-
tated or if a felony was taking place at the
time of the crime.
But Judge Mary Day Coker agreed with
prosecuting attorney Geoffrey Fleck that the
jury should decide the circumstances behind
the double homicide.
Coker prefaced the day telling jurors she
wanted the trial, which ended in hung juries
in December and February, to go as quickly
and efficiently as possible.
Kelly Brie Anderson, Harris' former girl-
friend and the mother of his child, told jurors
that on July 2,2003, Harris was going to 'get a
deal' with Adkins.
She said Harris called her around 6 p.m.
that day and asked her to return his phone
call in one half-hour.
Anderson said that when she did, no one
answered the phone.
Later that day, a Gainesville Police
Department officer responding to a traffic
crash discovered that a gray Buick Riviera
registered in Hudson's name had rammed
into the front porch of Gaihesville City
Commissioner Craig Lowe's house.
Adkins, the driver of the car, was found
shot in the back of the head. Harris' body was
sprawled across the center console.
Analysis of blood splatters in the backseat
found that a passenger was sitting there at
the time of the shootings.
According to state witnesses, Adkins bor-
rowed the car to complete the drug transac-
tion, but Hudson tagged along, intending
to rob Harris of the drug money approxi-
mately $8,000 in cash.
Two of the 222 fingerprint samples taken
from the crime scene
S matched Hudson's.
Inside the vehicle,
GPD investigator Marc
Trahan found two fire-
arms including a .38-
caliber revolver on the
right rear floorboard.
Hudson Additionally, a GPD in-
vestigator and two expert
DNA analysts testified about a green bath
towel found in Adkins' apartment which
Hudson allegedly used after the murders.
Genetic material consistent with Hudson's
DNA profile was on the towel along with
those of Adkins, Harris and an unknown
But as both DNA analysts contested, DNA
may last a long time and it is possible that the
genetic material on the towel was deposited
it different times, and may not necessarily be
After two days of testimony from the
prosecution's witnesses, Bernstein called
Hudson's wife Selena, his -only witness, to
the stand around 4 p.m.
During her testimony at all three trials,
Selena Hudson maintained her husband was
home in Orlando the day of the shootings.
Closing arguments in the trial will begin
Awareness Week seeks to boost student involvement
* EACH DAY BRINGS A
DIFFERENT THEME TO THE
REITZ UNION COLONNADE.
Alligator Contributing Writer
Cultural Awareness Day claimed
a spot on the Reitz Union Colonnade
Wednesday amid the chaos of
Student Government elections with
the purpose of educating students
about UF's cultural organizations.
Cultural Awareness Day is part
of Awareness Week, sponsored by
Horizons, a service organization,
and Volunteers for International
Student Affairs. The week features a
different awareness topic each day.
Horizons member Bradley Sun
said the idea is to get more people
involved in campus.
Providing a range of organiza-
tions related to the day's theme will
bring in more volunteers by raising
several interests rather than a single
specialization, Sun said.
S"We serve the community and
are not specific to any one service
project," said Horizons Publications
Director Sasha Mitarai. "We hope to
get everyone involved
On by offering a wide
Campus range of topics."
About 15 to 20
booths from various cultural orga-
nizations were scattered across the
colonnade, offering an overview of
each group's mission, .purpose and
Classic Fair Catering provided
free snacks to attendees.
Monday kicked off Awareness
Week with Sex Awareness Day, fol-
lowed by Campus Awareness Day
Thursday will be Recreational
Awareness Day, which features a
rock-climbing wall on the Reitz
Union North Lawn from 10 a.m.
until 2 p.m.
Friday brings Fun Awareness
Day. Inflatable activities, cotton can-
dy and popcorn will be provided on
the North Lawn.
Horizons Secretary Rishika
Budhrani said they hoped to pro-
mote the importance of maintaining
a positive outlook while. dealing
with everyday stress.
"The objective of the day is to
have a-balance between academic
and social life so students don't
get too stressedout about things,"
Mitarai said Horizons' purpose
is not just community service but
to get students involved as much

St Patricks's Day is a holiday commemorating the pa-
tron saint of Ireland and a lovely day for a Guinness. Once
a Catholic holy da.y the United States has converted St.
Patrick's Day into a secular celebration acknowledged by
Irish Americans and non-Irish alike, who spend the 17th of
March holding parades and expressing a fondness for the
Emerald Isle's music, food and, of course, its alcohol.
Gainesville may not boast a population of Irish de-
scent comparable to cities such. as Boston, New York or
Savannah, but restaurants and bars do appreciate its sig-
nificance as a premier party date on the college calendar
and offer festivities to accommodate even the most social
leprechauns in town.
When the sun sets tonight, Bennigan's, 3208 Archer
Road, will light up Gaines ille, throwing one of the biggest
and wildest St. Patrick's Day bashes. This year, the Irish
restaurant features live music and plenty of drink specials.
One Drop. described as reggae rock and relaxed Ska, will
play inside while the appropriately named DJ Shamrock
will spin tunes outside.
The Jagermcister girls will be on hand distributing
cheap shots and Tell-o shooters, and you can partake of a
cool drink barreling down the ice luge display or two- for-
one drafts available at the inside bar. The special on corned
beef and cabbage runs all day. The party starts at 8 p.m.
and lasts until 2 a.m. There is a $5 cover, and you must be
21 to attend. Call 373-2800 for more info.
Durty Nelly's Irish Pub, situated at 208 University Ave.,
opens at 11 a.m. in observance today's holiday. They will
serve corned beet and cabbage to customers craving a sam-
pling of Irish food. while musicians and other entertainers
perform throughout the day and into the-evening. Duty
Nellv's offers their regular drink specials, including $1.75
domestics and $4.50 domestic pitchers. Contact the pub at
374-9567 for more details.

Morningbell bassist taps into shutterbug instinct
By NATHANIEL DEAS
While driving through down-
town Gainesville, Eric Atria no-
ticed something odd. Displayed
in somebody's front yard stood
a sharp spike impaling a weath-
ered, 2-foot-tall, gray stuffed rab-
bit. Propped up against the spike
sat a large rectangular sign that
Atria needed his camera.
"He has a whole bunch of s***
in his yard; it was like I had to
take that picture," he said. "I

house and back. It took like 45
The resulting photograph, en-
titled "Why?" can be seen along
with other works by Atria at
Java Lounge, situated at 1632 W
The exhibit, called "Light and
Color in the Man-Made Spectrum
and other selections," features
more than 20 photographs of
vivid natural color, glowing
man-made lights at night and
other visual combinations.
One of the photographs, "Iron
Mike," features a scene from the
Nintendo boxing game "Mike
Tyson's Punch Out." The pic-
ture, taken just as Little Mac hits
Mike Tysor across the face, was
not Atria's easiest.
"I took that to make a flyer
with, and I was like 'You know,
that's a great picture,' even
though it's obviously not some-
thing I created," he said. "But
you know how hard it is to, first
of all hit Mike Tyson, and second
of all get the digital camera,
which isn't instantaneous, to
click at that split second?"
Atria, who also plays bass
for the popular local band
Morningbell, already has used
some of the displayed photo-
graphs on the band's debut
album "Learning by Musical
"A lot of my pictures come
when I move my camera, and I
know that's kind of stupid and
anybody can do that, but that's
where we get a lot of stuff that
seems to match up with lyrical
stuff," he said. "Sometimes I'll

Call band battles evil car karma to reach local venue
By JUNE CAPPIELLO
It would be hard to deny that the mem-
bers of The Snake, The Cross, The Crown
recently have encountered some bad luck.
Their tour van, "Optimus Prime," broke
down mid-tour, and the brand-new Ford
diesel van they bought to replace it broke
with only 700 miles on the odometer, caus-
ing the cancellation of several shows.
So much for "Built Ford Tough."
But if-everything goes as planned, The
Snake, The Cross, The Crown will play
Common Grounds on Wednesday night at
9 with Codeseven and Decibully.
The California-based indie rock band
has been on tour for nearly six months,
promoting their album "Mander Salis"
(Equal Vision Records).
"We kind of hold the theme of basic
rock 'n' roll but really use modern technol-
ogy to give it our own twist," drummer
Mark Fate said.
"We try to keep it as organic as pos-
sible," he said.'
In spite of four U:S. tours and a
Midwest tour, Fate says he has yet to get
sick of the music, although surely he must
be sick of the pizzas he's been eating for
the past 17 days.
The band's sound has gradually evolved
since their prior effort as Curbside Service
(sans Fate), focusing on atmospherics with
more acoustic guitar and even adding "al-
most a folk twist, in a way."
Fate said the next album might be
written on a farm in Mississippi not
an unusual location for the band, whose
members mostly are from Huntsville,
For now; the band resides together in a
house in Santa Barbara.
Fate says the domestic union has helped
the band focus on their music.
With a deserted beach 10 minutes from
the house and the environment around
He said the members have' space to
think and to get in touch with their artistic
"Not to sound cheesy, but kind of con-
nect with nature in a way," he said.

He said his studies in criminology at
Auburn University always had been a
back-up plan in case he couldn't get
into the music business.
Now, at 23, he's embedded in the in-
Sdustry, living by the beach and enjoying
what he does, regardless, of a broken van

Computer scientists get in touch with artsy side
By ALICIA PEREZ
Numbers, equations and for-

beautiful, complex and amaz-

are interested in art together in
one class, fusing the complex-

Within the class, which has
grown from 12 students last year
to nearly 50, students are asked
to create physical sculptures that
represent programs and data in

who are a part of this exhibition,"
The various sculptures will be
on display for two weeks starting

He said he feels that the 3-D
sculptures help educate people
and generate more interest.
Aesthetic computing is some-
thing in which Fishwick always
has been interested.
And for the last three years
with funding provided in part by
the National Science Foundation,
he was able to make his interest
become a course available to
computer science students in the
"There are two angles to
aesthetic computing," Fishwick
said. "First is creating-an under-
standing for the sculptures the'
"The second angle deals with
the possibility that these sculp-
tures will be future interfaces in
10 or 20 years, and people will
use these things to do math and

lude awakenings at Rue: Bar needs crowd control
romoters repeat after me: "I'm

es it? That's because Gainesville
I't Miami, Los Angeles or New

ide needs to stop. The Rue Bar
ff at the entrance, of course, tries
t to fall behind with the attitude.
Dmoters ignore patrons in the

art, opting to let in the well-en-
wed, bottle-blond females no

S30 minutes to get inside with
only six people in front of me.
"Gasp!" You must think, "Duran
... they kept you waiting in line?"
Oh yes, because Rue Bar's unattend-
ed phone either was always busy or
no one picked up, so I couldn't give
the owner or promoters a heads-up.
My friend did have us on the VIP
list; however, we got there after
midnight, so a staff member said
the list was closed. But he and others
were letting hoards of people in free
after the supposed cutoff. I guess we
weren't that VIP.
Maybe it was all those people
who got in free, but the club was

shocked. Finally, a place that knows
that image is everything when trying
to lure patrons. However, it falls flat
on its face once you enter. Rue Bar's
chic exterior doesn't match its trashy

The DJ was like every other DJ in
Gainesville; you've got your crunk,
and then switch it to the occasional

hall if they are daring.
However, he did shock me in that

"I think we're going along

The off-week arrived on the
heels of a road trip that saw UF
compete twice in three days in Salt
Lake City and Los Angeles. The
trip left the team fatigued.
"The last weekend was gruel-
ing," Faehn said. "There are a lot of
schools that have two meets in one
weekend, but one of those meets is
at home. But ours were both away,
and with travel and a time change.
"That being said, it was of vital
importance that they experience it,-
mentally and physically."
The meets gave the Gators

"It's nice because we'll have a

Plefka: Texas Tech offers tough coach, open doors
* SANTA FE PLAYER WILL PLAYFOR
BOB KNIGHT IN LUBBOCK, TEXAS.
By RYAN MOSS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Bob Knight is well known in the sports
world for his crazy behavior. He is the col-
lege basketball coach that threw a chair
during a game and was accused of assault-
ing one of his former players.
Knight has become famous for his in-
tensity, which sometimes has gotten the
best of him. All of the baggage, however,
doesn't scare Jon Plefka.
Plefka, who just finished his career at
Santa Fe Community College, has commit-
ted to play basketball next year at Texas
Tech, where Knight is the head coach-
"I'll be perfectly fine," the 6-foot-9, 235-
pound Plefka said. "All Coach Knight ex-
pects is hard work and no messing around,
and that's what I am going to do. I'm go-
ing to be all business, starting from when I
-go down this summer."
Plefka- chose Texas Tech over sev-
eral other Division I schools, including
Virginia, Minnesota and Utah.
"It is a great situation for me to play
for Coach Knight," Plefka said. "He is a
great coach, and they are graduating two
of their big guys. I just saw it as a great fit
According to Santa Fe head coach
Chris Mowry, Plefka will provide the Red
Raiders with a big body that can bang and
rebound, coupled with the ability to step
out on the perimeter. Mowry thought go-
ing to Texas Tech was an opportunity that
Plefka could not pass up.
"[He has] the opportunity to play at a
successful program in the Big 12, which
is one of the outstanding conferences in
the country," Mowry said. "Also, he has
the opportunity to play
for Coach Knight, who is
one of the best coaches to
ever coach this game."
that being a player for
Plefka Coach Knight presents
after your college career
when you move into getting a job are
great," Mowry said.
It has been a long-journey for Plefka,
a high-school graduate from Connecticut
who originally committed to Rutgers to
play football. He never made it to Rutgers,
as he changed his mind and went to play
baseball for Vermont.
After spending one year there, Plefka
relocated again, this time to play hoops
at James Madison in Virginia. Once again,
Plefka only stayed a year, then headed to
play basketball and baseball at Santa Fe.
Plefka's journey, combined with the
recruiting process, has taken its toll. For
once, he is glad that he is headed for a
place where he will spend more thep one
year of his life.
."It is definitely a relief to have decided
this early," he said. "The recruiting process
is long, and it was tough seeing different
schools every day. I'm glad that now I can
just focus on [my last] baseball season and

N BA, from page 26
Forget sure things. Trash the con-
cept of rewarding a college senior
for his efforts. If you can predict
someone's season three years from
now, you've got clout.
"The, body stands out first,"
Kelly said. "You go to a high school
game and you see a 6'11" kid being
guarded by a 6'5" kid and that
stands out. You look at the frame
and you ask, 'Well, can he put
some muscle on that frame?"'
What they can't measure is
"I saw [Phoenix Suns all-
star] Amare Stoudemire in high
school," Kelly said. "You could tell
warming up-he was really gifted
athletically, but then during the
game he was really lazy.
"All he did was back guys down
and dunk on them. Is that going
to translate into the pros?. He's got
potential because he's athletic, but I
don't know if he's got any skills."
20 year-old age limit?
Ranging concerns regarding
high school hoops talent has
piqued the NBA's attention. A
proposal being considered for
the league's new collective bar-
gaining agreement would place
a 20-year-old age minimum on
NBA draft participants.
If the item passes, the NBA
landscape changes tenfold. High
school seniors would be forced to
choose between Duke and North
Carolina rather than Hummer or
Whether the proposal has
a shot depends largely on the
Players' Association. NBA stars
Tracy McGrady and Stoudemire
have publicly rejected the pro-
posal. Fellow players Grant Hill
and Ray Allen have endorsed
it. Thomas, the former Detroit
Piston and Indiana superstar,
declined an opinion on the topic.
Kelly, the experienced scout, en-
tertains its chances.
"I think [players] will realize
it's beneficial for them because
that would ensure more spots for
veterans for a longer time," Kelly
said. "If we've got 18- and 19 year-
olds, then somebody has to leave

Brumbaugh where he falls.
-"If it's de-
stroying college basketball, then I
think they need to find some kind
of medium," Brumbaugh said. "I
would understand why they
would do it. Whether it's right or
wrong, I don't know."
That's the best anyone can
hope for. Whoever makes the best
educated guess on a player lands
the prized baller. The emphasis
has shifted from drafting refined
players to finding potential.
It's sad. No one can deny it.
And the only way for prospects
to battle the frenzy is to attack the
core of the issue.
"Just stay humble," Howard
said. "Don't read the papers.
Don't get attuned to the media -
take your time and talk to them,
but just stay away from all that.
Don't let anything get to you."

But that is past the team, said junior Sarah Lowe.
Following the SEC Tournament loss, there was a team
meeting that even included the support staff and
team managers, she said. The team discussed what
needed to be done to make the most of what was left
in the season, and that attitude has now carried over
to the Gators' preparation this week.
"We're looking at [the WNIT] as if it was any other
championship," the guard said. "Florida has never
won a championship and this is our opportunity to
do so. 1Vhether it's the XVNIT, that doesn't really mat-

The 17 qualifiers ties for the sec-
ond-highest number in the nation
with Auburn and falls only one-be-

ward to finally being able to match

WVomen's tennis won't slip up
again. Once their seasons come back
around, soccer and volleyball will
go deep into their respective tourna-
ments. And heck, maybe the base-
ball team will finally defeat Miami
in the postseason.
Some question why people are
so high on Urban Meyer when
he hasn't coached a down at UF.
"Having this many girls lets us
know that we could win," Weiman
said. "They really don't have an
advantage over us numbers-wise. It
evens the playing field out."'
Still, Troy knows that beating the
defending national champion Tigers
will be no easy task. Staying in con-
tention during the SEC meet until
the final events boosted UF's hopes.
But, in order to win, the Gators will
need more. "
"We certainly have a different
confidence now after conference,"
Troy said. "Repeating it in a different
environment will be the challenge."
STroy knows that his girls are ready
and very motivated.
"It's a real competitive group,
and we've, got all the best togeth-
er," said Troy. "If you like competi-
tion, this is the best possible group
to be in. We have an opportunity to
compete and want to make the best
out of that opportunity."
That reasoning fails to -ecognize
the things that happen behind the
scenes. The installation of a value
system that encourages hard work
and discipline and punishes foolish
behavior, for instance.
As far as basketball goes, the
men's team could realistically make
a run reminiscent of 2000 and shed
the stigma of postseason wioes.

UF excited for postseason opportunity
THE GATORS WILL PLAY THEIR FIRST
WOMEN'S NIT GAME TONGIHT.
By MICHAEL MAURINO
When the UF women's basketball team packed
its bags for its Women's National Invitational
Tournament first-round game tonight, they would
have been wise to sneak in a red cape.
The Gators (14-14, 5-9 Southeastern Conference)
travel to Tampa to meet the South Florida Bulls at 7
p.m. While being matadors for an evening may not
sound appealing, like in bullfighting, one false move
in a tournament situation can end it all.
The Gators are somewhat familiar with the 'do-or-
die' perspective of the postseason. The program has
been in postseason play in 11 of the past 12 seasons,
with Coach Carolyn Peck's first season of 2002-03 be-
ing the one outlier. In 1999-2000, the Gators were in
the WNIT and made it to the finals before falling to
With orily three seniors on the squad, a majority
of the team has only last season's trip to the NCAA
Tournament's second round as postseason experi-
With this in mind, Peck looks at the WNIT as
something that she hopes will pay off for her players
in future seasons.
"I feel like the opportunity to play in the postsea-
son, right now, in the WNIT is a great opportunity and
privilege for us," she said. "To understand and have
that experience of playing [in the] postseason and un-
derstanding where our goals are, I think that's a great
opportunity to build."
USF (20-10, 9-5 Conference USA) lost on Jan. 2 to
the Gators, 58-50. In that game, the score was 22-22 at
the half before USF started the second half on a 13-4
run. UF made up the 9-point deficit thanks to USF
mistakes and the Gators finding chances in the paint.
UF seems to have moved past its 62-58 loss to
Nick West/ Alligator Staff Alabama in the first round of -the SEC Tournament.
Guard Sarah Lowe and the Gators sneaked past South Florida earlier this That loss was the fourth consecutive for the Gators,
season, but will clash with the Bulls again in the first round of the WNIT. SEE BASKETBALL, PAGE 27
