Gators out of
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
NASHVILLE Somber was
the mood. Silent were the fans. Wet
were the tears.
There is no manual for NCAA
Tournament emotions. There is no
formula for shunning the slap of an
early Tournament exit.
"This isn't a game," said junior
forward Adrian Moss following his
team's 76-65 loss to Villanova. "A
game is something that children
in a schoolyard play. You don't
see grown men sprawled out on
the ground crying after a game.
Emotions got involved, and it
UF smarted on Sunday -un-
like other eliminated teams. Gator
Nation thought the days of early
Tournament pitfalls were over, or
at least temporarily halted. But
after averting Friday's Ohio scare,
a familiar feeling returned. For the
fifth consecutive season, the Gators
packed their luggage during the
Tournament's opening weekend.
"It was like a blown opportu-
nity," junior guard Matt Walsh said.
"That's the worst feeling. The last
two years, I don't know if we had
a chance to win anything, but this
year I felt like we did."
In 2003, Walsh and the young
Gators fell to Michigan State in
the second round. Last season, a
depleted and worn UF slipped to
Manhattan. But this season, espe-
cially after winning the Southeastern
Conference Tournament, the Gators
that played like the 2000-2001 ver-
sion were supposed to be back.
Sunday, those hopes fizzled.
"We felt like we were one of the

John concert postponed

Instead of hoisting light rigs and ar-
ranging the makeshift floor section of
seats to prepare the Stephen C. O'Connell
Center for a concert by Academy Award-
winning performer Elton John, staff and
roadies spent Sunday breaking down a
half-built stage and boxing up wires.
At approximately 2:15 p.m.,
O'Connell Center Business Manager
Renee Musson was contacted by rep-
resentatives of the singer, who asked to

SGP also a 'legacy' affair
By MEGAN SEERY
Alligator Staff Writer
The most-funded Student Government
organization has been in Greek control dur-
ing much of the last 10 years.
Former high-ranking officials of Student
Government Productions, UF's entertain-
ment bureau, say that historically, SG of-
ficials have used their authority to promote
a "legacy" system a form of nepotism in
which students are awarded SG positions
based on their organizational affiliations.
Historically, important SG positions have
been distributed by a "house and group
system" involving Greek and other student
organizations, according to a 1998 circuit
At least eight of the past 10 SGP chair-
persons were fraternity members, and the
last four chairmen hail from Theta Chi

1991 to 1992, was the last woman appointed

Gainesville residents walk
for AIDS awareness
Members of the Gainesville
community gathered Saturday
to raise money for the Women's
Global Health Imperative at the
Panhellenic "Women's Walk for
More than 500 people par-
ticipated in the 5K walk and lis-
tened to Thomas Lister, an AIDS
activist who is HIV positive.
Lister spoke to the attendees
about raising AIDS awareness.
"It was really powerful and
very effective," Panhellenic
Council President. Ashley
If he can teach one person
about AIDS awareness, Lister
said, then it's worth it for him to

and other STDs and to promote
safe motherhood, according to a

CITY ELECTION PROFILES
Incumbent loyal to Gainesville
Editor's note: This is the first in a series of four articles
taking a closer look at candidates for the Gainesville
City Commission At-Large seat.
By IVETTE MENDEZ
Trying to contact Rick Bryant during Gator games is
pointless. Any efforts will be met with answering machines
The time he spends at both men's and women's sporting
events is special to the incumbent At-Large commissioner
because that's the time he spends with his three kids and
wife of 20 years.
The Gainesville native and lifelong resident, who earned
a bachelor's degree in history and a master's in political
science from UF, believes his local flair and know-how give
him an edge against the other three candidates.
"I believe I'm the only one in my race who grew up here,"
Bryant's involvement with UF continues with his posi-
tion on the Graduate and Professional School Admissions
Board at the Office of the Registrar, and his longstanding
history with Gainesville makes him well-versed in the city's
"I've lived here since 1971," he said. "I've kind of seen
how Gainesville has grown and changed."
Bryant refers to his first term as commissioner as gradu-
ate school and says winning the upcoming election would
be akin to working on his second degree. With only 18
months in office under his belt, the incumbent is running for
re-election because he wants more time to finish the projects
"For the first year, you're learning how Gainesville
works," Bryant said. "You work your butt off."
Bryant said his competition does not realize how hard it
is to make ideas a reality due to the fact that when sitting on
the commission, other commissioners have different ideas
and agendas from your own.
"They think they are going to change everything in a
three-year term," he said.
In such a short term, Bryant admitted he was not able
to accomplish everything but focused on making recreation
more available to residents and teaming with Teen Zone and
Action Network to bring federally funded, structured after-
school programs to area public schools that provide kids
with activities until their parents get home at 6 p.m.
"I still want to continue to work on the issues
that led me to run the first time."
Incumbent at-large City Commissioner
The rate of juvenile crime in middle schools is double that
of high schools because middle schoolers have fewer struc-
tured programs, Bryant said, noting that there are iow 500
kids enrolled who would otherwise be out on the street.
"That's called making a difference," Bryant said.
"I still want to continue to work on the issues that led me
to run the first time," Bryant added, crediting his dedica-
tion to the public school system to his kids, with whom he's
spent hours watching "Star Wars," now one of his favorite
"All three of my kids love 'Star Wars,"' he said. "We can
Bryant's vested interests in Gainesville, such as his co-
ownership of Godfather's Pizza, prompt him to find ways
to encourage residents who have grown up in Gainesville
to stay here.
"A lot of people feel obligated to go," Bryant said. "There
are just not that many jobs."
Bryant added that many residents feel the job opportu-
nities in Gainesville are not adequate and look to Orlando
or Tampa. He has worked to bring entry-level jobs to serve
the whole community instead of relying on UF as the main
source of jobs for the city, noting that entry-level as well as
biotech jobs are necessary to give people of all skill levels the
opportunities they seek locally.
Bryant's desire to improve the quality of life for all resi-
dents, especially by developing the east side of Gainesville,
is what he said first encouraged him to run.

Incumbent Rick Bryant is one of four candidates for the
City Commission At-Large seat.
Bryant said he does not like the large development gap
between East and West Gainesville, which continues to
grow, he said, adding that the development of stronger, safer
neighborhoods is crucial to the city's future.
But Bryant wants to be famous for something other than
his accomplishments as city commissioner playing bas-
ketball, if he has time outside his job and family.
Charities get the

There was also an opening event

Jury finds Hudson guilty
Third trial ends
By MEGAN V. WINSLOW
After two previous mistrials and 16
hours of deliberation last week, Willie
James Hudson was found guilty of two
counts of manslaughter Friday, marking
an end to four months of uncertainty.
"We're very pleased with the convic-
tion, although it wasn't exactly what we
had hoped for," State. Attorney's Office
spokesman Spencer Mann said Friday
evening. "But considering the tough
road we've had to travel through three
trials, we're very satisfied with the deci-
sion the jury has returned."
In December and February, two sepa-
rate juries were unable to reach a verdict
in the double-murder case involving the
shooting deaths of Gainesville resident
John Adkins, 28, and Kevin Harris, 29.
Round three of the trial began Tuesday
and concluded Thursday morning, when
the jury first began deliberating.
Both the state and the defense said
they were surprised by the verdict.
Hudson, 30, was tried on two counts
of first-degree murder for the July 2003
According to the prosecution, Adkins
borrowed Hudson's car to complete a
drug transaction with Harris, for which
Hudson would be in the backseat,
hoping to rob Harris of approximately
When Harris fought back, however,
the ensuing struggle lead to Hudson
shooting him three times, prosecuting
attorney Geoffrey Fleck said. A stray
bullet hit Adkins, the driver, in the back
of the head, and the car rammed into
Gainesville City Commissioner Craig
Lowe's front porch.
Considering two previous juries
struggled with reaching a verdict they
deliberated for 11 and 7 hours respective-
ly defense attorney Stephen Bernstein
said he felt the jury settled
"It catches me off-
Lcal guard because-to me, it's
Court clearly a compromise,"
Bernstein said after court
adjourned. "You know,
we've had two verdicts that were split,
and I think this jury was probably head-
ing there and they said, 'Well, we'll just
compromise,' because no one argued for
manslaughter neither side thought that
was a viable option or a credible option."
Punishment for a third charge against
Hudson, possession of a firearm by a con-
victed felon, is to be decided by presid-
ing Judge Mary Day Coker, as Hudson's
criminal history was not divulged before
the jury. Under Florida statute, Hudson
could receive a minimum of 18 years and
as much as life in prison.
Sentencing is scheduled to take place
SG, GAU protest exclusion
By JEFF SIRMONS
UF students involved with Graduate
Assistants United will protest today along-
side members of Student Government about
a $50 fee SG officials feel is "discriminatory
against international students."
International students feel the fee adds
to already-high tuition costs and argue that
other Florida universities have waived the
fee for their foreign students.
Both SG and GAU requested to speak
with the UF Board of Trustees during the 15-
minute public comment session contained
in each meeting, but both were declined.
Since international affairs is not on the
Board of Trustees' agenda, and because GAU
recently petitioned the Board of Governors,
which oversees all. state university boards,
to give an opinion on international-student
fees, the UF trustees decided not to allow
either- group to speak, according to Student
Senator Robin Collins.
'"They should not be able to censor a
student's right to speak in the interest of
students," Collins said.
Jamal Sowell, Student Body president
and the only student on the Board of
Trustees, said he worked with both GAU
and SG to ensure their voices would be
heard, adding that he made sure the groups
sent their requests before deadline.
"I've never seen anyone get denied,"
Sowell said. "I guess there's something le-
gally binding them from speaking, but we'll
find that out [today]."
"It's not even about the extra
expense. Now, it's about whether
students have the right to speak
with the Board of Trustees."
The Student Senate passed a resolution
Nov. 30 specifically designed for discussion
at the Board of Trustees meeting, and Sowell
said he e-mailed it to each trustee.
Sowell said he would appear at the pro-
test, which takes place outside Emerson Hall
at 12:15 p.m. Board of Trustees committee
meetings start there at 1-p.m.
GAU Co-President Todd Reynolds said
the protest is designed to convince the
Board of Trustees to allow either GAU or SG
to speak during the public comment period.
Members from.both groups will chant and
hold signs during the meeting if necessary
to try to get their voices heard.
"It's not even about the extra expense,"
Reynolds said. "Now, it's about whether
students have the right to speak with the
Board of Trustees."

leaders on universal health care. -
More than 150 people gathered to
discuss the benefits of coverage and
the disparity in access to quality care
between socioeconomic groups.
"We think every criminal- has
the constitutional right to a lawyer,
but we don't think that a sick baby
has the right to a doctor," former
U.S. Surgeon General and keynote
speaker Joycelyn Elders said.
The nation's medical system
needs a grassroots change, positing
that the long-term solution lies in
nutritional and physical education
Preventative education will save
the money being funneled into treat-
ment for illnesses such as diabetes
and heart disease, she said.
Elders said that, while patients
need to fight for the right to health
care, doctors should politic as well.
"Doctors could bring down this
health care system in a week if they
wanted to," she said.
Alachua County Commissioner
Cynthia Chestnut attended the event
to speak about the public health care
program approved by Alachua
County voters in November called
CHOICES. The program, which
provides primary health care ser-
vices to those working uninsured, is
funded through a quarter-cent sales
tax that will raise
$49 million over
by the Avery
Social Change, a
Elders New York-based
nization that works to raise aware-
ness of the lack of minority access
-to the medical system. Thirty-eight
local groups co-sponsored the event,
including eight UF organizations.
Randy Kammer from Blue Cross
and Blue Shield of Florida insurance
presented an alternate view.
"If this were utopia, free unlim-
ited health care would be possible,"
she said, but added that the costs of
such a system aren't feasible.
She cited Western European
countries that have widespread
public access to health care. There is
still a class divide in those countries
because people who can afford it opt
for private health insurance, which
provides better care, she said.

Impact because I have a proven record
of achievement. There is more to lead-
ership than holding a position or sitting
on a committee. Leadership is about
actively making a difference in the life
of the average student. During the past
year, I authored the first resolution in
the state of Florida opposing block tu-
ition. This resolution went on to unify
all of the state universities through the
Florida Students Association.
I was the only SG official to oppose
the Board of Trustees and fight against
the rise in Activity & Service fees. I did
not just place this issue on my platform
I spent a semester developing a plan-
to keep tuition low and mitigate cuts to
student organization budgets.
For several years, students at the
Medical Center have been promised
a gym to meet the demands of their
schedules. I moved forward and took
the initiative to accomplish this task.
I did not simply talk about making a
difference I turned my ideas into
action. This is the pivotal difference
between my opponent and myself.
The Impact Party strongly believes
in open, honest and effective Student

6, ALLIGATOR 0 MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2005
With Progress out of the
equation, Impact is best
This decision wasn't quite as hard as the last one.
Everyone on the Alligator editorial board agrees Joe
Goldberg is the most experienced and qualified candidate
in the election. Everyone agrees that he is the most likely to be
able to push forward the legislation he supports.
However, everyone also agrees that his interests do not
coincide with those of the student body. More importantly, we
cannot in good faith endorse a candidate we believe has consis-
tently proven that he and his party will resort to any means nec-
essary to secure victory regardless of moral considerations.
Because of these factors, as well as an objective look at the
qualifications of each individual candidate, the Alligator en-
dorses the Impact Party in the SG runoff elections.
But don't take the sentiments above to mean we endorse
Impact soley because they aren't Gator: Impact has,.overall, the
more-impressive executive slate. While Goldberg takes the nod
for president, Impact's vice presidential candidate Robert Mack
and treasurer candidate Michelle Lightbourne are more promis-
ing than Gator's Joyce Medina and Lindsay Cosimi.
Mack is the most compelling candidate for vice president
from any party, including Progress. His experience as lobby
coordinator has prepared him for the give-and-take that is re-
quired for change in SG especially considering the division
of power in the Student Senate between the Access senators and
the largely-Gator new senators. The positions Mack has held,
including Student Senate parliamentarian, do not directly trans-
late into success in the vice president's primary duty of oversee-
ing the SG cabinets, but he has demonstrated the most enthusi-
asm and the most detailed ideas for improvement in SG.
Lightbourne, despite being a fill-in for former treasurer can-
didate Elda Auxiliaire, has experience more relevant to the job
and a more clearly defined sense of what she must accomplish
than Cosimi. Between overseeing a $62,000 budget as president
of Benton Engineering Council and working with constituents'
financial concerns as a Student Senator, she has dealt with the
allocation of SG funds on a line-by-line basis.
Cosimi, on the other hand, primarily has been connected.to
SG financial matters through serving on a number of fee and
funding committees. Whether or not she is capable of dealing
with the day-to-day working of budgets has not been seen.
Furthermore, Impact's goals- fit better with the students'
needs. The easy example of this is online voting: Impact spear-
headed the movement to get the initiative on the ballot, whereas
Gator's waffling on the issue has been well documented.
While the promises that come most frequently out of the
mouths of the Gator candidates tend to be free towels at cam-
pus gyms and a staunch opposition to a mythical "dry cam-
pus," Impact has kept its focus on student representation and a
number of pragmatic student issues such as moving toward
a totally wireless campus, the breaking of legacy positions in SG
and a reduction in Activity & Service Fee increases.
With the Progress Party's loss in the initial elections, the op-
portunity for change in SG took a hard blow. But there still is a
chance that hope for the future could be kept alive. The Impact
Party likely would serve much as the Access Party has: Impact's
members may not follow through on all of their promises for
student access, but they would further the cause in some way.
A future with the Gator Party in control of SG, on the other
hand, would be nothing but a step backward. The advances to-
ward increased representation in SG made during the past year
may be small, but they are real.
If the students do not elect a party that will continue these
advances, as we believe the Impact Party would, SG will de-
volve completely back to the elite-dominated system it histori-
cally has been.

Terrible cases pier
n a way, this week was like any other. There was war,
but nobody paid much attention. A hero Mark
McGwire fell, and nobody seemed too surprised.
But there were a couple stories that broke through our
shield of collective cynicism and dispassion, if only for
One is the case of Terri Schiavo. Schiavo, who is in
a vegetative state due to effects of an eating disorder,
now is dying a slow death because doctors removed her
This is sick irony and another example that God may
have a dark and twisted sense of humor.
It also is sadly ironic that such a shy person is in-
volved in such a publicized political battle.
But now that it has become such a battle, Democrats
have managed to take up the wrong side again.
According to ABC News, a bill aimed at prolong-
ing Shiavo's life was -delayed Sunday when House
Democrats in Washington blocked a voice vote.
Democrats should not kid themselves there will
be political repercussions if they continue to fight for
Terri's death. This is a gut issue.
It just doesn't seem right that a woman can dehy-
drate and die against the wishes of her family.
It just doesn't seem right that her husband, Michael
Shiavo, could sue and win a-$1 million-plus settlement
to take care of her for the rest of her life and then claim
a few years later that she had told him she didn't want
life support if it became necessary.
And the Democrats just don't seem right for taking
the side of death instead of life.
But the sadness of the whole Shiavo debacle pales in
comparison to the Jessica Lunsford story that reached
its horrific conclusion Friday.
The body of the 9-year-old Florida girl, who has been
missing since February, was found near a mobile home
in which a sex offender was living at the time of the

Head-to-head: How SG party platforms match up
By BRIDGET CAREY
Alligator Staff Writer
Since January, the Impact and
Gator parties have debated plat-
forms and slung mud at each other,
but their political skirmishes boil
down to this week as both go head-
to-head in an executive-ticket runoff
Student Government election this
Tuesday and Wednesday.
The swings the parties have
taken at each other involve online
voting, an alcohol-free campus and
dealings with UF administration.
The Gator Party made 14 prom-
ises on their platform, and Impact
listed 31 promises and defined those
that are short- and long-term goals.
The Impact Party was the driving
force in creating the petition to get
the issue of online voting for future
SG elections on the ballot. Although
the petition which garnered
enough signatures was blocked
from appearing on the ballot by

"I think that we're right around

In previous debates, Goldberg
has said he was not convinced about
the security, but he now is more op-
timistic of the situation.
"I think that we've done a lot of

ing that the committees who have
already done research have shown
the program is "safe and secure."
He later added that, perhaps,
another task force inquiry is needed
before SG can seal the issue.
The "dry campus" debate
UF's administration has not
taken an official stance toward
alcohol on campus, but it has said
it's deliberating over how to handle
what the university feels is a drink-
ing problem with UF students.
Goldberg said the administration
has taken actions that are hostile-to
drinking on campus.
For example, administration has
banned beer sponsorships at an on-
campus Rascal Flatts concert. And,
Goldberg adds, UF officials are not
smiling upon his committee seeking
to extend the time that city bars can
keep their doors open.
The Gator Party promises to fight

Weiman is probably the
meet we've ever had."
Still, the Gators' efforts were
not unrewarded, as they turned in
several personal-best-record times
in various events. Not only did
sophomore Candace Weiman break
her own personal-best time in the
100-yard butterfly, she broke the UF
record that had stood for 17 years.
The record had been held by former
Olympian Dara Torres, a nine-time
Weiman was not surprised to
beat Torres's record. It was her goal.
"The school record was [some--
thing I wanted to accomplish]. I just
kind of thought I had to break the re-
cord that night," Weiman said. "I've
set high expectations for myself. You
watch film and see what you do
wrong and you see others' talents."
The record may have been a
great personal accomplishment, but
it was unable to improve the Gators'
standing, as they finished fourth for
the second year in a row.
Though this may be a tre-
mendous accomplishment for a
mainly underclassmen-laden team,
Weiman knows that the Gators need
to do better.
"We've set a high precedent
for ourselves," Weiman said. "The
seniors were absolutely incredible;
they left some big shoes to fill. This
won't be good enough for next year.
We have a lot of work to do."
Meyer conducts competitive drills to challenge team
By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
Saturday marked UF's first spring practice
in pads and Coach Urban Meyer was quick to
let the hitting begin.
Not only did the players run some offense
vs. defense game-situation drills, but they also
did some one-on-one hitting.
The players all gathered in a circle, offense
on one side and defense on the other. Coaches
picked players and they faced off, trying to
wrestle the opponent to the ground.
"It's been called anywhere from the circle
of life to the at the other place I've been, it
has its own names the language involved
- I can't tell you exactly what it's called,"
Running back DeShawn Wynn got flat-
tened by linebackers Brandon Siler and Todd
McCullough, and linebacker Brian Crum
squashed running back Skyler Thornton.
However, Meyer was satisfied with his
three running backs' play overall on Saturday.
Wynn, Thomton and redshirt freshman
Markus Manson all ran in the 21 game situa-
tions UF simulated.
Meyer set up situations within 12 yards
from the end zone and gave the offense either
one, two or three chances to score a touch-
down. If the offense scored in the set amount
of downs, they were awarded a point, and if
the defense stopped them, they received a
Meyer kept track of the score, and with
the score tied at 10, quarterback Chris Leak
ran a naked bootleg to the left to win it for the
offense. Meyer said he will do these competi-
tions on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Meyer ran a few option plays, a couple
of end-arounds and a few shovel passes all
integral parts of his offense.
However, when one reporter suggested
how well the team was picking up the offense,
Meyer was quick to say the offense isn't good
"The way Coach is talking, the way
he motivates you, you think you
can go 12-0. And I think we will."

"That was awful," Meyer said. "If you
think that is good offense, then we have to
show you some tape on some good offense.
It's good effort; they tried hard, but no, it's not
LOTS OF CONFIDENCE: After scoring four
touchdowns in game-situation drills on
Saturday, UF wide receiver Chad Jackson
predicted the Gators would do great things
in 2005. Great like not lose one game.
"The way Coach is talking, the way he mo-
tivates you, you think you can'go 12-0. And I
think we will," he said.
Meyer said he didn't know the players well
enough to be happy with that confidence. But
that wasn't the only prediction Jackson made.
"We have great receivers," Jackson said. "I
think we probably have the best receivers in
When told that Jackson said that, Meyer
didn't necessarily agree.
"That's a bold statement," Meyer said.
"Eighteen, 19, 20-year-olds make bold state-
ments. I can tell you about Chad Chad can
be a great one."

In SEC opener, Gators drop first series of season
By TIi CASEY
It was a weekend of firsts for the
UF baseball team.
The No. 6 Gators played away
from home for the first time and re-
turned to Gainesville last night with
their first series loss of the season.
Mississippi defeated UF 3-2 on
Sunday in Oxford, Miss., to win the
weekend series 2-1.
Mississippi won 10-4 on
Saturday after the Gators took the
Southeastern Conference opener 5-4

doesn't have to like it.

it's their first year,
they learned what SEC play is like,"
Leclerc said. "For us that have done
it before, we're not used to losing
two games in a weekend. We're a lot
better than we're playing."
The Gators (16-5, 1-2) can feel
good about not committing an er-
ror in the last two games, only the
second time all season they have
accomplished the feat.
More impressively, UF pitch-
ers held Mississippi All-American
Stephen Head hitless in four at-bats
"Our pitching was good all
weekend," Leclerc said. "They kept
the runs low enough to give us a
chance to win."
Head almost single-handedly
defeated the Gators on Saturday.
Head (4-0) contributed on the
mound and in the batter's box-by
pitching eight innings, striking out
nine Gators-and hitting his seventh
home run of the season in a 3-for-4,
three-run, three-RBI performance.
SThe Gators won the series opener
on Friday on the strength of starting
pitcher Brian Ball. -,,

Facing two unranked opponents in its final meet
of the regular season, the No. 6 UF gymnastics team
knew it would most likely be victorious. But that
wasn't the point.
Though the Gators (14-4, 5-1 Southeastern
Conference) did win with a season-high score of
197.20, far outpacing Pittsburgh (192.55) and Yale
(188.625), the meet served a greater purpose leading
up to this week's SEC Championships.
"This evening answered any questions we might
have had heading into SECs," Coach Rhonda Faehn
said. "We definitely accomplished our goals. I was
really pleased. They were very relaxed tonight.
That's the type of attitude we'd like them to carry
over the calm confidence headed into SECs."

with Savannah Evans. Evans was a dual winner

Same old story: UF out in tourney's first weekend

junior guard Matt Walsh pulled his
trademark headband over his eyes,
shielding himself from the terrible
but familiar scene.
For all the talk of increased
physicality and defensive improve-

UF after its first conference title in
school history, the Gators ended
their season Sunday in a familiar
With a solid rebounding margin
and domination of scoring from the
paint, fifth-seeded Villanova defeat-
ed the cold-shooting Gators 76-65,
giving fourth-seeded UF an early
exit from the NCAA Tournament
for the fifth consecutive season.
"Plain and simple, we got domi-
nated," junior forward Adrian Moss
said. "No sugar coating, nothing.
I'm going to give it to you raw with
no chaser. We just got dominated.
They kicked our butts in every facet
of the game."
After a season in which the
Gators improved from the eleventh-
to the second-best rebounding team
in the Southeastern Conference,
Villanova outrebounded UF 44-34.
The Wildcats also outscored the
Gators 40-26 in the paint.
And in a manner unprecedented

basically admitted he's out the door.
"If it is [my last season], there's nothing

kill myself with how it ended."

effort against Villanova, he led the SEC in
scoring and was runner-up for SEC Player

by staying with UF?
If Roberson does indeed follow Lee to
the NBA Draft, how will the Gators re-
spond next year? Taurean Green can prob-
ably be a suitable point guard, and Corey
Brewer will become a true scoring threat.
