Officials insist UF nuclear reactor safe
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Almost a month after an ABC News
special decried "gaping security holes" at
universities' nuclear reactors, UF has not up-
graded its reactor security because university
officials disagree with the network's report.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the
university's nuclear-engineering depart-
ment, featured in the news report, is review-
ing its procedures. However, he called the
ABC report flawed.
"We know what we have in place is safe.
There's no question of that. Sometimes
it comes down to people's perception of
what's safe," he said.
Joe Hice, UF associate vice president for
marketing and public relations, said his of-
fice received about a dozen calls from con-
cerned parents after the Oct. 13 report.
Orlando said most callers were easily
calmed, but one father hung up on the per-
son taking his call.
Brian Ross, the ABC News reporter who
led the investigation, said in a phone inter-
view that UF officials are "giving a sugar-
coated version of the truth."
Ross said the biggest danger at UF's re-
search reactor, which hosts routine guided
tours, was its lack of security guards and
The federal Nuclear Regulafory
Commission does not require these provi-
sions at research reactors due to their size
and relatively low risk, according to the
commission's Web site.
Ross expressed concern about a
"dirty bomb," which uses conventional
explosives to spread nuclear material.
He cited a 1981 report filed by UF with the
federal government that imagined a worst-
case scenario in which radioactive- contami-

nation spread a half-mile from the reactor.
But an excerpt of the report, released by
the NRC, states that the scenario is "unre-
alistic" and "extremely conservative and
unlikely to occur under any circumstances."
Ross said officials from the Department of
Defense, NRC and U.S. Congress have told
him university research reactors are trouble-
"It's a very real concern," Ross said, "and
it's unfortunate that the University of Florida
doesn't seem to want to take it seriously."
But NRC spokeswoman Beth Hayden
said otherwise in an interview.
"ABC is trying to use this to scare people.
We feel like they're perfectly safe and per-
fectly secure," she said.
Hayden said the notion that saboteurs
could access UF's nuclear material, which is
underwater and beneath 50 tons of concrete,
is not feasible.
"Even to get to this fuel would take hours,
hours of work large cranes. And it just
wouldn't happen because there would be a
response by the local law enforcement," she
For security reasons, NRC officials could
neither confirm nor deny video surveil-
lance at the reactor, but they said unauthor-
ized activity would bring a swift, armed

follow up on the report, pending further

M'FRAT MEMBER ARRESTED
IN CHICKEN SHOOTING.
By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
A Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity
member was arrested on the charge
of cruelty to animals for shooting at
chickens on campus Tuesday.
Cornelius Edward Regan Jr.,
killed a rooster and injured one'
hen with a rifle pellet gun in the
backyard of Lambda Chi Alpha
Fraternity house, 4 Fraternity Row,
according to University Police.
However, Regan, who lives in
the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house at
2 Fraternity Row, said he shot at the
chickens but did not kill them.
"People were complaining about
the chickens," Regan said. "The
chickens are annoying."
Regan said he was tired of the
birds' noise early in the morning.
A UPD officer was riding his
bicycle in the area when he saw
Regan shooting at four hens and one
rooster, then hiding behind a car, ac-
cording to the arrest report.
"I don't want to be viewed
as someone who hates animals,"
Regan said. "I'm very upset with
Regan said he doesn't think that
livestock animals are supposed to be
in the area.
Lambda Chi Alpha members
said they were unaware of any
chickens in their backyard, and were
distressed upon finding a dead hen
on their deck the next morning.
"We're saddened by this emo-
tional, traumatic event," said Neil
Kardos, Lambda Chi
Public Alpha treasurer. "We

UPD officials said the chick-
ens were roosting in Lambda Chi
Alpha's backyard because fraternity
members were feeding them.
Regan was referred to Greek

tion of Student Code of Conduct.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon President
Dell Dailey said Regan was not act-
ing in accordance with a fraternity-
Dailey refused further comment.
"We know that this was a tragic
event, but at least the chicken was
not choked," said Marc Grasley,
Lambda Chi Alpha member. "Our

* DONORS GIVE $15 MILLION, LAND ALONG
LAKE NONA FOR NEW FACILITY.
By IVEITE MENDEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
Prospective medical school students soon may have
the option of earning their doctorate at the University of
Central Florida along the shore of Orlando's Lake Nona if
the school's proposal is approved.
A multimillion-dollar donation means UCF can open a
medical school with the state government's help.
Winter Park developer and real estate agent Steve Walsh
and his wife, Paula, donated the $2.5 million.
"He saw the need, like the rest of the community, for a
medical school here," said UCF spokesman Tom Evelyn.
Tavistock Group, a private investment company, do-
nated $12.5 million to the cause and challenged the com-
munity of Winter Park to match it.
The Walshes' donation capped the community's portion.
The school has $25 million in total, which will strengthen its
case when it presents the medical school proposal to the
Board of Governors, the group that oversees the state's 11
public universities, Nov. 17.
If the proposal is approved, the school will approach
the Florida Legislature for funding, which vowed to match
UCF's ftmds, raising the total to $50 million.
Tavistock Group also donated the 50 acres of land on
Lake Nona as the proposed site..
"Medical schools do bring with them a certain amount
of cachet and prestige," he said. "That will help us attract
the best and the brightest."
However, the goal of the program is not to increase the
school's enrollment, but to strengthen the quality of its
UCF has a biomedical science program already in place.
Pappachan Kolattukudy, dean of UCF's Burnett College,
of Biomedical Sciences, would have a role in the medical
school's development if it is approved. UCF is in the pro-
cess of recruiting faculty members for the school.
Several attempts were make to contact Associate Dean
Tom Harris and Assistant Dean P. Jan Eller from the UF
College of Medicine, but neither returned phone calls.
Nuclear industry needs students
By KAITLIN O'FARRILL
Alligator Contributing Writer
Wanted: Graduate students to
meet the need of the nuclear energy
industry's most limited resource:
Several universities including UF
have begun confronting the Nuclear
Energy Institute's 2004 predicted
shortage of nuclear scientists and
engineers in the United States over
the next five to 10 years.
"If you are a nuclear engineer,
now is a very good time," said
Alireza Haghighat, chairman of
the UF Department of Nuclear and
Radiological Engineering. "You can
name your price."
Commercial nuclear power gen-
eration utilities are expected to lose
about 28 percent of employees to.
retirement, and replaceritents are few,
according to the NEI Web site.
The problem stems from the years
of slow growth that followed the ini-
tial rapid rise of nuclear technology.
"In the 1960s and 1970s, nuclear
technology was top of the line,"
Haghighat said. "Everyone wanted
a piece of it."
Orders for new plants were can-
celed after the 1979 accident at the
Three Mile Island nuclear power
plant in Pennsylvania; the last nu-
clear reactor was built in 1995. The
industry focused on maintenance in-
stead of growth and stopped hiring.
"If you are a nuclear engi-
neer, now is a very good
chairman, Department of Nuclear
and Radiological Engineering
Now; as the industry looks to ex-
pand nuclear power to supply more
than 23 percent. of U.S. electricity
needs, college graduates are needed.
"It's a problem nobody really talks'
about," Haghighat said. "We need
time to train, and do we have it?"
In response to the situation, the
NRE at UF, one of about 20 univer-
sities in the nation offering nuclear
programs, is taking steps to increase
the number of students entering util-
ity jobs, Haghighat said.
"We have grown significantly in
the last four years," he added.
Under Haghighat, the number
of undergraduate and graduate
students enrolled in the department
more than doubled, with 30 percent
enrolled in nuclear engineering.
However, limited funds permit
acceptance of only 10 percent of
"We simply cannot afford all those
students," Haghighat said.
Florida Power & Light and
Progress Energy have started to build
relationships with UF by providing
scholarships, research grants and
hosting recruitment events.
The rising demand places stu-
dents in the position of control.
"The jobs really come to us,"
said Taylor Moulton, president
of UF's chapter of the American
Nuclear Society. "I have never had
to send off my resume."

Gator Nights artist takes to Internet to sell works
By TIM HUSSIN
Charcoal artist Jimmie Williams
knew the way to draw attention to
his artwork was to do it for free,
and he was right.
In the past three months,
Williams, 30, progressed from getting
kicked off campus for trying to sell
his sketches to drawing free sketches
of students on campus, to receiving a
contract with Gator Nights.
On Oct. 21, he drew 30 students
from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. in the Reitz
Union Colonnade, and at 2 a.m.
there was one woman left who had
been waiting for an hour.
"Icouldn't let her not get her
picture drawn," he said.
Once he was taken under the
permit of a Caribbean student or-
ganization, police no longer both-
ered him on campus since he did
not sell his drawings.
Ed Poppell, vice president of
Administrative Affairs, said if the
university allowed people to sell
things on campus, students would
constantly be bombarded.

Williams said a growing num-
ber of people reached out to help
him over the past month. Graduate
statistics student Sourish Saha con-
nected him with SellGville.com, a
classified Web site, so Williams
could sell his drawings online.
"He only makes $40 to $50 a
week to support his two kids and
wife," Saha said.
Williams said his wife and kids
live with his parents now, but once
he makes enough money from
his art, he will be able to support

His latest drawing of Florida
Field took 35 hours to create,. and
he said he will put it up for sale
if he gets permission from the
University Athletic Association.
"I do plan on being wealthy,"
Williams said. "I'm not going to be
a starving artist."
Williams said his passion to
make a living from art is a combi-
nation of anger and love.
"I'm angry about not living life
to the fullest, and I love artistic ex-
pression," Williams said. "Passion
is an overflow of anger and love."

We never support violent rioters. The death of even a
single civilian and the ruin of others' property are never
warranted. If we lived in the neighborhood, we'd be pissed,

This national spirit is largely a positive feature. Where
else can you find such unfettered cultural pride? But it also
means that those who aren't completely French and those

Every tourist who plans to visit Paris hears about the
This would never be the-sole reason for unrest. For much
of France, it is a superficial reputation. However, it lays an
ideological foundation for an assimilation problem.
Almost every country displays racism when a large
group of immigrants moves into its borders. America has
had periods of bigotry toward the Irish, Hispanics and
Polish. It's never right, but it's almost unavoidable.
But it becomes a serious political problem when second-
and third-generation immigrants feel unequal and unwel-
come. The spreading of the riots proves, without a doubt,
that this is the issue in France.
Now it's time for the French government to find out why
some of its population feels this way.
The problem likely has its roots in the tension between
minorities and the majority, but a highly regulated labor
market seems to be the catalyst.
Policies that limit the firing of employees and force the
detention of older workers help keep unemployment high
throughout France. All workers have problems finding jobs,
but young workers have an even harder time. Add the im-

When you have thousands of people convinced that a

Israeli's tragic story
David Hatuel should be a broken, shattered shell
of a man.
Until May 3 of-last year, Hatuel, his pregnant.
wife Tali and their four daughters lived in Gush Katif in
the. Gaza Strip.
On that day, Tali and the children were driving along
Kissufim- Road, located south of their hometown. At 12:'
45 p.m., Palestinian terrorists unleashed a hail of gunfire
on their car, killing Hatuel's entire family.
To make sure the family was dead, the terrorists shot
each of them in the head at point-blank range.
They shot Tali, nine-months pregnant with Hatuel's
first son. They shot.Hila, who was 11. They shot Hadar,
who was 9. They shot Roni, who was 7. They shot Meiriav,
who was 2.
And then they used a video camera to film their
bloody and broken bodies.
Soon afterward, Palestinian Authority radio praised
the terrorists as "heroic martyrs," while calling the fam-
ily "terrorists" for the crime of living in Gaza.
Hamas, Yasser Arafat's Fatah and Islamic Jihad
claimed joint responsibility for the attack.
It must be pointed out that Hamas and the Palestinian.
Authority will. soon be running in parliamentary elec-

about it for a thousand more.

shredding events of that day had left him embittered and
submerged in hatred?
No one would, especially when we consider how the

tragedies they've suffered.
So why did a smiling Hatuel
hold a ceremony Oct. 31 to an-
n- nounce his engagement to Limor
Shem-Tove, a 32-year-old woman
Andrew Bare- from Jerusalem?
The Bare Truth And why did Hatuel say to 150
email@example.com people at the ceremony, "My sight
is set to the future. I am building
again on a home that still is. My
wife and daughters were not erased. They live inside
of me. They are part of my life. I am like a tree whose
branches were cut off, and now they are growing again.
I had two options: fall down and be totally destroyed, or
stand up and live. I am choosing life."
It's hard to say what drives a man to not only survive,
but thrive, after such a tragedy. And if there is any group
of people who have experience-in dealing with the worst
of humanity, it's the Jews.
If Hatuel's motivation is. unclear, the message of his
story is not. This tale, beginning in tragedy and hopefully
ending in peace of mind and soul, puts a human face on
the determination and courage of the Israeli people.
What the Israelis understand, and what so many oth-"
ers are unable to grasp, is that revenge takes precious
Strapping a bomb to your chest and blowing up a piz-
zeria is a coward's act, not a hero's.
Terrorists may have killed Hatuel's family. But he re-
fused to allow them to take his life.
David Hatuel is a hero. And he is hardly unique in

Letters to the Editor
Poor have no right to place blame on richer men
My question to Mr. Pifeffer was first asked by Ayn
Rand in response to the "economic Bill of Rights" devised
by Franklin D. Roosevelt. The bill included the right to a
"useful and renumerative job," the right to earn enough
to "provide adequate food and clothing and recreation,"
and six other preposterous "rights."
Rand's question was, "At whose expense?"
The blame for. the current French ordeal can be attrib-
uted to those who believe it is their right to be provided
with thoughts, products and jobs created by other men.
These goods were created by men who knew that the
scope of their entitlements could be encompassed in
one simple right: The full use of their reason in order to
acquire what they want and need, so long as they do not
infringe upon this same right in any other man.
Poverty does not give a man the right to the riches of
Need does not give him the right to take.
Until all men properly realize this, the poor will stay.
poor of their own accord and, when they can, will lash out
with misplaced hatred against men who live morally. The
only charity I would grant the violent youths in France
would be a shipload of compact mirrors, so they can look
into the face of evil as they themselves demonstrate it.
Think about it. At whose expense?
Staying for entire football games is not a civic duty
Since when did it become my civic duty to attend UF
football games? Who are you, Tripp Miller, to tell me that
I should be ashamed of myself for missing the last quarter
of a game?
Your efforts would be put to better use if you were con-
cerned less about students taking a $7 ticket for granted
and more about the important things students waste
- food and water, for instance.
Why should you make me feel ashamed because I'd
rather spend my Saturday evenings doing something dif-
ferent than you? With 50,000 students at this university,
I should hope there is a slight variation in how students
like to enjoy their free time.
I owe nothing to the football players. Good for them
for going to school like the rest of us. Mazel Tov. Do we
owe it to the golf, volleyball, tennis, track, swim and soc-
cer teams. as well? They too manage to do us proud in
their respective sports while also making it to class. They
certainly deserve the same respect as their football-play-
ing counterparts. Are you in attendance for all of their
matches, meets and games?
If not, then it saddens me to say that I am ashamed of

UF point guard takes on Big Sister role
LOWE, from back page
her minutes cut by more than 12 per game.
Sarah's mother Jane Lowe noticed that her
daughter had to shift her focus toward competi-
"That was hard for her," Jane said. "She
handled it well, but it wouldn't be true if I said
it was a piece of cake. She had to accept the fact
that it was competition with Tishona. She had to
step up to the plate."
iLast season the final year with Gregory on
the roster the two split time at starting point
guard. Gregory started 16 games to Lowe's 13.
Now, with the starting spot all to' herself,
Lowe will be depended upon to lead an inex-
perienced team in the toughest conference in
women's basketball while tutoring star freshman
UF coach Carolyn Peck believes she can han-
dle the responsibilities.
"She really has taken to heart the position of
point guard," Peck said. "One of the things in the
past three years and over the summer that Sarah
has developed is ownership of that position."
Battle off the court
Throughout the past four years, Lowe has
mastered balancing her athletic responsibilities
with her academic workload.
The youngest of four kids, Lowe has lost sleep
trying to meet her high standards in athletics,
* academics ahd community involvement.
In addition to teaching First-Year Florida,
she's a Cicerone, serves on, the executive board
for the Student Athletic Advisory Committee
and works as the assistant director for Student
Government in community involvement.
Outside of UF, she has taken on a "Big Sister"
relationship with Jackie, who she befriended
through the Big Brothers-Big Sisters organization
about two years ago.
"She just seems to be able to balance all the
different parts of her life really well," Jane said.
"She has boundless amounts of energy, but she
doesn't sleep a lot."
But that doesn't mean she's perfect just
look at her 3.9 GPA.
In addition to a pair of B-plus grades, Lowe
settled for a B in a marketing class while under-
taking a business minor.
After that class, Lowe decided to go.elsewhere
with her studies.
"I have a complex with getting below A's,and
I've sort of been like that my whole life," said
Lowe, who double majors in Political Science and
Spanish. "Perfect is what I'm striving for."

By DAN TREAT
In year one of the post-David Lee-Matt Walsh-
Anthony Roberson era, the No. 1 question on everyone's
lips is: How on Earth is this team going to score?
Departing with the Big Three were their combined
45.7 points per game, leaving no one on the UF roster
who has averaged double digits in scoring:
But ask any of the players or UF coach Billy Donovan,
and they'll tell you the points are going to be there.
"I'm going to eliminate any pressure that those guys
feel because we' lack or lost some scoring, that now
[they have] got to step up and be a scorer," Donovan
said. "I think that's my challenge this year is getting
them to understand that there is no pressure. Corey
Brewer, just because Matt Walsh is not here, you don't
need to score 25 points."
There's that name again.
From the outside looking in, it's easy to single him
out as the man who should pick up the slack.
A deeper examination of his game and the way the
Gators'play around him, however, reveals so much
Ask Brewer if he's going to be one of the main op-
tions on this team, and he shrugs off the attention.
"I might be one of the main options," Brewer says.
"But, you know, we have four or five guys coming back;
any of us could be the main option."
In fact, it is difficult to get Brewer to talk about him-
self at all.
Ask him what he focused on in the off-season.
"I focused on my ball handling, shooting, just like
any other person."
Ask him how he improved, coming off a season
where he started all 32 games as a freshman.
"I feel like I've made a lot, but we'll have to see when
the game starts."
Ask him if he's ready to take on a larger role in his
second collegiate season.
"I feel like I'm ready, but I feel like we're all ready. I
just can't wait to find out."
The beaming smile on Brewer's face when he makes
that statement makes you think that he knows some-
thing that you don't.
His teammates can see it too.
"Corey's game got a whole lot better," fellow sopho-
more Taurean Green said. "We all worked out over the
summer, worked on our fundamentals, and you'll see
a lot of stuff Corey will do this year that he didn't do
Brewer arrived in Gainesville in 2004 as the most
heralded member of a class ranked No. 12 in the nation
by recruiting Web site Rivals.com.
While it is still unknown whether Brewer, Green, Al
Horford and Joakim Noah will be able to live up to that
lofty ranking, all four are going to be starting this year.

Tim Casey, Alligator Staff
As a freshman Corey Brewer emerged as a lock-down
defender for the Gators. As a sophomore he will move
into a leadership roll on a team eager to showcase its
new defensive mindset.
hind the arc isn't really his game.
"I'm not a 3-point shooter, I'm not even going to
lie to you all," Brewer said. "I go to the rack, if I make
threes I make them, but I'm trying to get to the rim."
From the beginning, it was Brewer's frequent trips to
the basket that earned him a piece of the fan's hearts. It
wasn't uncommon to see him on ESPN making a high-
For the most part, it was his defense and energy, not
his 7.5 points-per game, that made him invaluable to
the Gators last season as they marched to their first-ever
SEC Tournament title.
But by the end of the season, Brewer improved his
scoring, averaging 11.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.7
steals during the three games in the SEC Tournament,
including a 17-point effort against Mississippi State.
And as you might expect, it was Brewer jumping and
throwing his fist into the air at mid-court when the final
horn blew against Kentucky.
Into the Spotlight
With as much success as UF had last year, thesea-
son ended on another sour note. Villanova bounced
the Gators out of the NCAA Tournament in the second

will look to relieve UF's scoring deficit this season.
That defeat has stuck with Brewer through the off-
"I feel like it has [stuck with us]," Brewer said. "I feel
like we're going to build on that because [we were de-
feated] in the second round, but I feel like that's [what]
our goal is, to get past that this year."
And if the Gators are going to advance past the open-
ing weekend for the first time since reaching the nation-
al championship game in 2000, Brewer feels it will be
their defensive mindset that carries them there.
"That's my mentality, that's Al's mentality, that's
Chris [Richard]'s mentality, that's Taurean's mentality,"
Brewer said. "We all Want to play defense.
"If we don't score, the other team's not going to score
Donovan has said in the preseason that he is look-
ing to have four or five scorers in double figures every
night, as opposed to the three-man show of Walsh, Lee
and Roberson during the past two seasons.
And while Donovan knows that Brewer is primarily
a slasher, he wants the sophomore to take advantage of
the long shot as well..
"If he gets so one-dimensional as driving it to the
basket and not taking shots, people are going to back
off of him," Donovan said. "And now they're going to
take away his level of athleticism, so we have to get him
to understand what's a good shot in the framework of
what we're doing offensively."
The accolades for the swingman are already pouring
Brewer was named to the preseason All-SEC first
team by .the coaches and second team by the media.
Even the Gators' season-opening opponent recog-
nizes Brewer he is the only UF player mentioned on
St. Peter's press release.
Brewer admits he hasn't thought about being per-
ceived as the team's go-to guy, but his wide grin lets
you know how much he enjoys what he's doing and
how eager he is to step back on the floor.
"I'm just ready to play," Brewer said. "That first
game, playing against somebody else, I'm just ready for
it, and we'll see what happens.
"I'm real anxious, we're tired of playing against each
UF to open season on Big Apple quest
Scouting the Gators
By DAN TREAT
Growing up 20 blocks away from
Madison Square Garden, it has al-
ways been Joakim Noah's dream to
play in the World's Most Famous
A chance to live that dream is just
two victories away.
The Gators host the first two
rounds of the Coaches vs. Cancer
Classic tonight and tomorrow, with
UF taking on St. Peter's College and
Oakland (Michigan) meeting Albany
in their respective openers.
The two winners will then square-
off Thursday with a trip to New York
on the line.
If Noah has anything to do with
it, the Gators will be heading to
Manhattan next week..
"We've got to take it one step, at a
time, play by play," Noah said. "We
can't sleep on the teams we're playing
Noah has the benefit of having
matched up against a number of the
Peacocks players before, including
two-time defending NCAA scoring
champion Keydren Clark, who Noah
described as a "great player."
"We're playing against a great
team in St. Peter's," Noah said. "I
know a lot of the players on that
team, and they have a great point
.guard, one of the best scorers in the
Clark naturally is a concern for UF
coach Billy Donovan as well.
"We have our work cut out for us
trying to contain him," Donovan said.
"I don't know if you necessarily stop
him. He's too good at getting the ball
up to the rim that you're just going
to totally eliminate him from getting
shots and scoring."
Only two players in history have
ever led the NCAA in scoring for
three straight seasons: Cincinnati's
Oscar Robertson and LSU's Pete
Maravich, both NBA Hall of Famers.
Donovan, who, played in the Final
Four with Providence in .the 1987, is
well aware of the storied company
that Clark may soon be keeping.
"When you start talking about a
player doing something similar in
this day and age is very, very dif-
ficult," Donovan said. "But I really
feel like he makes their whole team'
The Peacocks also boast a sizable
front dourt in 7-foot Kinsey Reeves
and 6-foot-10 Ivan Bozovic.
While the Gators have only had
three ,consistently healthy big men
through the preseason, some help
might be on the way.
Adrian Moss, who underwent sur-
gery on his knee two weeks ago, has
been recovering quicker than expect-
ed from an injury that was projected
to sideline him for a month.
Donovan listed him as question-
able for tonight's game.
Whoever is on the floor tonight
for the revamped Gators is prepared
to prove this team can be successful
despite losing their top three scorers
from a year ago.
"I think we've just got to come
ready, we know what we have to
do," Noah said. "I think it's a great
opportunity to show what we can ac-

SohOOTING FOR PERFECH6TION
Lowe juggles game, studies
By NICK ZACCARDI
Sarah Lowe takes people to
school on and off the basketball
When the regular season starts,
Lowe, who doubles as an instruc-
tc? might as well be hitting the
books, readying herself for one
of the most important academic
experiences of her life.
Lowe, the most experienced
player on coach Carolyn Peck's
young roster, won't be anywhere
near Seton Hall when the UF
women's basketball team hits
the court for its season opener.
Instead, she'll be in Alabama,
interviewing for a Rhodes schol-
Some things are just more im-
portant than college basketball.

Lowe will travel to
Birmingham, Ala., on Nov. 18 to
interview for the Rhodes scholar-
ship, which awards students two
years of study at the prestigious
University of Oxford in England.
She will miss the Seton Hall
Basketball Classic on Nov. 18 and
19, when UF plays St. Francis (NY)
and the hosting Pirates.
"It was a conflict of my respon-
sibilities," said Lowe, who hasn't
missed a game in three seasons
with the Gators. "It was an obvi-
ous decision because I had to go to
the Rhodes interview. However, at
the same time, it's very emotional
in the sense that it's my senior

Battle on the court
While it seems like a grueling
competition, it could be noth-
ing compared to Lowe's longest
and toughest battle on the court,
where she competed with Tishona
Gregory for playing time through
her first three seasons.
Lowe, who played for Lower
Merion in Ardmore, Penn., the
same high school as Kobe Bryant -
started all 28 games as a freshman,
averaging 9.8 points per game.
"Freshman year, it was a sur-
prise for me," Lowe said. "By no
.means did I come in here and think
that was going to be what was go-
ing to happen."
But Peck had a change of heart
in the 2003-04 season, and Gregory
started all 30 games. Lowe found
herself riding the bench, her points
per game average split in half and
