Off-campus



students get



living advice'


* A UF OFFICIAL HELPS
STUDENTS ADJUST.

By DUSTIN HORN
Alligator Contributing Writer

The next time you or your
friends get caught urinating in
the yard, you might be getting a
letter from UF.
As if getting caught in the
act isn't embarrassing enough,
the letter is going to ask the
homeowner and any room-
mates to come in and have a
chat with Nora Kilroy, assistant
dean of students
Student and director of off-
Life campus life, about
how to be a better
neighbor.
But Kilroy isn't there to chas-
tise students for their mistakes.
She is there to educate students
ori the right and wrongs of off-
campus living.
Her office has become nec-
essary because of the growing
number of UF students who
live off campus, which is now
nearly 39,000 students, Kilroy
said.
Kilroy has spent nearly two
years as the director of off-cam-
pus life serving as a mediator
between UF students and tradi-
tional Gainesville residents.
"That's how I see this office
and how the Dean of Students
Office sees this office as an
educator and advocate for off-
campus students and also an
educator and advocate for the
community," Kilroy said.
Previously, any problems
between UF students and their
neighbors were handled by
various offices at the university.
With the creation of the direc-
tor of off-campus life position,
students, police and Gainesville
residents now have a specific
person to call if there is a prob-


lem between students and their
neighbors.
She said that many of the
tfmes that problems occur, stu-
dents aren't intentionally caus-
ing problems.
"Most of the time, students
are not bad students. They just
don't have the knowledge," she
said. "They don't know what
the city codes are. They've nev-
er lived on their own before."
Problems are also compli-
cated because of a lack of com-
munication. Kilroy said many
times neighbors are afraid to
talk to students or think that
they shouldn't have to talk to
their student neighbors. That's
where Kilroy comes in.
UF presently houses only
about 25 percent of its students,
two-thirds of whom are fresh-
men. The university doesn't
plan to build any more major
housing, Sharon Blansett, as-
sistant director of housing for
marketing, public relations and
research, wrote in an e-mail.
"The only additional hous-
ing we may build in the next
seven to 10 years will be more
graduate and family housing,"
Blansett said.
Although some consider
housing 25 percent of the entire
student body to be low, many
universities that attempt to
house 50 percent of their stu-
dents have trouble filling all the
rooms, she said.
Blansett said there is really
no comparison between on-
campus and off-campus hous-
ing. The idea is that on-campus
living will act as an educator to
teach students how to manage
without their families and learn
to be responsible.
She said many students later
tell her how much they miss
being so close to campus and

Sun-baked for Spring Break
Stephanie Anderson arid Aly Lowder, public relations freshmen, soak up the afternoon sun on Bro-
ward Beach to prepare for Spring Break. Anderson will spend her break on the beach in Fort Lau-
derdale, and Lowder is going to a friend's beach house in Melbourne. As the days warm up for the
break, many UF students are taking advantage of the weather.





Student health records go online


Treatment expected to be faster


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

By next Fall, a student who wakes
up at 3 a.m. with a fever will be able
to make an appointment with the
Student Health Care Center imme-
diately.
Public By the time the center
Health finishes digitizing its
medical records, students
will be able to make appointments,
fill out medical forms and view their
records from home.
The process began last November,
and officials said the system will be
completely online by Summer or Fall.
Because some SHCC officials are
new to computerized records, the
first months of the transfer have seen
some delays, said Louise Okken, the
SHCC's manager of the electronic


health records project.
The system will cost about
$500,000. Okken said the SHCC
received bids from nine different
companies and ultimately chose
Pyramed, a medical-device distribu-
tor based in Britain.
When officials had narrowed their
search to three firms, they screened
the remaining bidders for secure pro-
tection of records.
An expert from UF's information
technology office and an enforcer
of the Health Insurance Portability
and Accountability Act scrutinized
the companies. Okken said Pyramed
was ranked either the most secure or
second-most secure company by the
experts.
One reason the SHCC chose
Pyramed is that it provided health
centers at other universities with re-
cords software.


The University of Central Florida
employs Pyramed, and Florida State
University and Florida International
University have implemented similar
systems.
Okken said UF's health center
treats 350 to 400 patients per day. The
new system will make their treatment
more expedient.
For example, when a patient
comes in, a doctor will not have to
search the building for that patient's
chart. It will be available online at
any computer terminal and will be
updated in real time.
Okken said the project has been
in the works for about three years.
During that time, several students -
via health center surveys or comment
boxes have requested the ability to
make appointments online.
When patients schedule an ap-
pointment online, they will receive an
e-mailed link to medical forms that
they must complete after typing in
a password.

Rafferty's Restaurant closes
Rafferty's Restaurant, near the
comer of 34th Street and Archer
Road, poured its last sweet tea
and served its last potato soup
and steaks before dosing its doors
Thursday.
The company was forced to
dose the store after sales proved to
be too low and costs to maintain it
proved to be too high.
"I hate to see it go, but it just
does not seem possible to make the
money in this location," said Shane
Simpson, a managing partner who
has been with the company for 15
years. "We have tried everything
but seem to have a big problem
with the visibility of the restau-
rant."
The restaurant's consumer base
relied heavily on word of mouth,
Simpson said, because hardly any-
one knows where the store is.
Rafferty's is a chain based
out of Bowling Green, Ky, with
over 20 stores spread through-
out Kentucky, Tennessee, North
Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio,
Indiana and Georgia. The
Gainesville location was the only
one in Florida. The restaurant
serves many of Gainesville's long-
time residents, induding Butler
Plaza owner Clark Butler.
"I have met some of the best
people and have had one of the
best times working at this store,"
Simpson said.

Student ejected from car recovers from injuries


By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Writer
srodriguez@alligator.org

A UF student who was ejected
from a car in an accident Feb. 28
is recovering in the hospital and
remains in fair condition.
Nineteen-year-old Nicole
Martingano was driving east on
West University Avenue near


Southwest 26th Street when a
white Lexus collided head-on with
her Volkswagen convertible, ac-
cording to Gainesville Police.
A Shands at UF spokesman said
Martingano is in fair condition,
meaning she is conscious but pos-
sibly uncomfortable, and all of her
vital signs are normal.
Police said the driver of the
Lexus, 22-year-old UF student


"I've seen fender benders,
but nothing like this."
Jason Burger
Crash witness

Andrea Vest, suffered minor inju-
ries such as bruises and cuts from
the seatbelt and air bag.
Vest was released from the hos-


pital the same day of the accident.
However, Martingano was in
critical condition for about a week
after suffering major head injuries.
Police said both vehicles were
going slightly over the speed limit.
Police also said Vest was talking
on her cell phone at the time of the
accident.
A blood sample was taken from
Vest to see if alcohol was a factor


for the accident. The results of the
toxicology report were not avail-
able.
Jason Burger, a nearby neigh-
bor, heard the crash and saw
Martingano lying faced down on
the ground.
"I've lived in my house for a
year and a half. I've seen fender
benders, but nothing like this,"
Burger said.

Web sites offer online auction for cell phone plans


By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF sophomore Brittany Bouffard can use
her cell phone only if she sits in her computer
chair at an exact angle and in a specific place.
If she doesn't, she can't get reception in her
Murphree Hall dorm room with her Cingular
cell phone. Sometimes, it won't ring in certain
locations or she gets voice mails two or three
days late.
"Reception is the pits in a dorm room,"
she said.
Bouffard and other dissatisfied cell phone
users now have a way to ditch their contracts
online.
Two Web sites, www.resellular.com and
www.celltradeusa.com, provide a legal way
for customers to auction or purchase cell
phone contracts in the United States. The
companies provide dissatisfied cell phone us-
ers with an online auction site for cell phone
contracts.
If the statistics are to be believed, said Eric
Wurtenberg of Celltradeusa.com, 51 percent of
the 180 million cell phone users in the United
States would cancel their contracts if it were
not for early cancellation fees.
The fees typically run from $150 to $200,
which can be a lot for a college student's bud-


get, he said.
Neither company is responsible for the
actual "transfer of liability," a clause in cell
phone contracts that legally allows another
person to take-over the contract like sub-
leasing an apartment.
"Reception is the pits in a dorm
room."
Brittany Bouffard
UF sophomore

The transfers are done through the respec-
tive cell phone providers, and it usually takes
one or two days, said Resellular spokesman
Mike Armstrong.
Available contracts range from two to 24
months with all the major cell phone provid-
ers. Cell phone contract offers may include cell
phones themselves along with accessories.
"What works best for me might not work
best for someone else," Armstrong said.
This service allows customers to try out
a cell phone provider for a shorter period of
time than typical cell phone providers' con-
tracts allow, Armstrong said.
No cell phone plan is necessarily more
popular in the auctions than another, he said.
With a Motorola Razr phone, people could


get out of their contracts in a day, Wurtenberg
said. In other cases, it could take a few days to
a few weeks. But they may not get out at all,
he said.
After creating a user ID, Resellular charges
$8.99 to see the list of available contracts.
People who want to auction their cell phones
must pay $8.99 to see the contact information
for interested buyers.
At Celltradeusa.com, people who want to
auction their cell phone contracts must fill out
a free profile advertising their plan. They are
later charged $19.99 to see contact information
of interested buyers.
A person looking for a new contract never
pays for the service with Celltradeusa.com.
A person purchasing the contract must
go through a credit check, in order to take on
full financial liability, said Nanci Schwartz, a
spokeswoman for Sprint Nextel Corp.
The old cell phone number comes with the
contract, Wurtenberg said.
However, a new number can be requested.
Also, a buyer can have an old cell phone num-
ber transferred to a new provider at no charge,
Wurtenberg said.
Resellular has already made about 2,000
transfers, Armstrong said. Celltradeusa.com
has about 2,050 listings currently, Wurtenberg
said.


Celltradeusa.com has a pretty good rela-
'tionship with cell phone service providers,
Wurtenberg said. If a company can take a
dissatisfied costumer and get a satisfied cus-
tomer, that's great business.
When her contract runs out in nine or 10
months, Bouffard said she plans to ask around
and see what service providers are good.
While contract-transfer sites sound like a
great option, she said she doesn't typically use
online auctions.
"EBay scares me," she said.
But cell phones are vital today, she said.
"When it doesn't work the way you want it
to, it's very frustrating," Bouffard said.

Man leads police in car chase ending near UF


* POLICE FOUND A CRACK
PIPE IN THE CAR.

By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Writer
srodriguez@alligator.org

A 24-year-old man was arrested
for leading Alachua County depu-
ties on a high-speed chase that end-
ed Thursday near the UF campus.
Joshua J. Branham, a Bradford
County resident, started traveling 80


miles per hour on Hawthorne Road
and was eventually stopped by
police on 600 NW 34th St. at about
8:30 a.m., according to an Alachua
County Sheriff's Office report.
Police said several motorists
were forced off the road as Branham
recklessly drove his green 1994
Chevrolet S-10 truck through the
roadways.
One vehicle suffered minor dam-
age at the 2400 block of Southeast
Hawthorne Road.
Two ASO deputies were follow-


ing Branham and used the "box-in"
technique in order to catch him.
The technique involves officers
strategically driving their police
cars in front of Branham's vehicle
and slowing his speed
Lo0al through controlled
News braking, according to
the report.
The deputies stopped Branham
before he entered a school zone.
"He was likely under the influ-
ence of narcotics," ASO spokesman
Sgt. Steve Maynard said. "We are


still waiting for results from the toxi-
cology report."
He said Branham was almost in-
volved in several head-on collisions.
"Police do not know why he was
out here," Maynard said. "I don't
think he even knew why he was
out here."
Police said they found a crack
pipe in Branham's vehicle, and he
later admitted to paramedics that
he used cocaine. The deputies and
Branham were transported to the
hospital due to minor injuries sus-

Bedbugs can hitchhike overseas on student travelers


Spring Break brings more infestations


By CASSANDRA SEDA
Alligator Contributing Writer

When UF students return to Gainesville
after Spring Break they might bring back
bedbugs and cause an infestation.
Spring Break tends to be the time of year
when bedbug infestations are most com-
mon. They are normally transferred from
place to place through luggage and other
belongings, said Jeff Hertz, a graduate re-
search assistant for urban entomology.
Hertz and Philip Koehler, a professor for
urban entomology at UF, wrote an article
on the habits of bedbugs and blood-suck-
ing conenose, a similar insect.
Bedbugs mainly feed on human blood
at night when people are asleep. Scratching
causes sores that can become infected, but


bedbugs are not known to transmit any
diseases, the article states.
Hertz said the increase of infestations in
the last decade may be a result of increased
worldwide travel and the decrease of re-
sidual pesticide use.
To avoid bedbugs, Hertz recommends
students search popular travel Web sites
to see if anyone has complained about bed-
bugs at hotels. He also advises students to
check their hotel beds upon arriving.
Hertz recommends removing the bed
linens and looking around the seam for
bedbugs or their fecal droppings.
Bedbugs are about a quarter-of-an-inch
long, oval, flat and have no wings. They
are generally brown, but after feeding they
turn dark red.
Through their research, Hertz and


Koehler found that bedbugs hide
and outlets; behind baseboards,
and pictures; between bed joints
around the tufts of mattresses; a]
linens during the day.
"People often try to hide 1
festation or try to control b
themselves but end up mal

Editorial
On the last day before Spring Break, you're probably not at
school because you want to be.
If you're like most Alligator employees, only a few short
class periods lie between you and getting hammered on the
beach.
That means no editorials, no reporting, no deadlines and no
protesters hanging out by the front door.
We can't wait.
We've just got to make it through one last day of classes. But
if we can do it, then so can you, and to help you on your way,
we've prepared one more home-cooked edition of our very
own..



Darts & Laurels

We begin by issuing a just-because-you-have-the-right-to-
do-it-doesn't-mean-it's-in-good-taste DART to the Center for
Bio-Ethical Reform and UF's Pro-Life Alliance.
We support free speech in all its various incarnations, but
gigantic bloody photos of aborted fetuses in the Plaza of the
Americas make us want to spew our Krishna Lunch.
We've seen pictures like that before. The Center for Bio-
Ethical Reform has been waging a campaign against abortions
at UF Until recently, gory depictions of abortions were con-
strained to banner-carrying planes and trucks on the outskirts
of campus.
This week, we found them just down the street from
Turlington Plaza as big as life. The pictures were disgusting,
loathsome, vile, repugnant and unnecessary Nevermind the
fact that we ran a photo of them yesterday on Page 4.
Continuing on our rampage through the annals of this week,
we bestow a thanks-for-the-hilarious-T-shirts LAUREL to the
UF College Republicans' for hosting its second annual PETA
barbecue.
At first we were confused. What would People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals be doing hosting a barbecue, or, perhaps
more bizarre, hanging out with a bunch of conservatives?
We didn't find out until later that, to the College Republicans,
PETA stands for People Enjoying Tasty Animals. We laughed all
the way to the hamburger grill.
It's about time somebody taught those haughty vegetarians
a lesson. Avoiding meat is OK with us, but comparing animal
suffering to the Holocaust starts to sound a little extreme.
We're glad the College Republicans took the opportunity to
show PETA members how to, in Chairwoman Ashlee Black's
words, "lighten up."
Next, we proffer a way-to-turn-away-from-the-dark-side
LAUREL for working to trim the monstrous size of the Student
Government Cabinet. Student Body Vice President Joyce
Medina proposed a bill to the Student Senate to cut the number
of cabinets to 10. There are currently 44.
The fact that Medina could even propose such an extreme
cut in the number of cabinets gives some idea of the extent of
SG's bureaucracy. Its about time somebody cleaned house.
And though it couldn't be explicitly confirmed by press
time, sources within the Alligator indicated that this might, in
fact, be the first laurel that Medina has-ever received from us.
Congratulations, Joyce. Keep up the good work.
But, on the same issue, we deliver a once-again-thanks-for-
nothing DART to every student senator who didn't support
Medina's bill. The bill was voted down Tuesday night in a 29-27
hand-counted vote. Oddly enough, just last week, the Senate
overwhelmingly approved the first reading of the very same
bill. At Tuesday's Senate meeting, apparently a few bad apples
had reconsidered.
But in a bizarre twist, a recount of the paper ballots at the
end of the meeting showed that the bill had actually passed by a
margin of 33 to 29. There was no word on how the two differing
votes could be reconciled only a vague promise that Senate
President and Student Body President-elect John Boyles would
take it to the SG Supreme Court and figure it out.
Ah, the wonders of democracy.

Patriot act erodes American freedoms


his week, the Patriot Act was renewed. Senate
Majority Leader Bill Frist lauded the renewal as
"a win for law enforcement, the war on drugs and
for communities and families across America."
But it seems a far stretch to label the Patriot Act as a
win for anyone.
Toadies and fear-mongers on both sides of the politi-
cal divide have held up the Patriot Act as a wondrous
piece of legislation that has protected America from
grievous harm. In reality, everything about the act
reeks. Its name is tainted with images of McCarthyism
and implications that those who don't support the act
are themselves terrorists. Proponents have acted as if
the Patriot Act is some magical shield that will protect
us from all harm. While the act strengthens pre-exist-
ing anti-terror provisions, it has set our government
down a slippery slope of suspicion and the suspension
of rights.
Apologists and fools claim that the Patriot Act stops
terrorists with minimal encroachments upon the aver-
age upstanding citizen's rights. However, in the real
world, the Patriot Act's influence on common society
is prevalent in daily activities. At our airports, the ap-
parent threat of middle-aged housewives is diffused
through preposterous shoe X-rays and random bag
searches. Drivers on the freeway are pulled over and
subjected to searches because of slight radioactivity
emitting from their bodies after medical treatments.
Retirees are given a full background check without
notification or consent by the government when mak-
ing a larger than usual payment on their credit card. A
phone call to your mother vacationing in Japan could be
recorded and reviewed.

Scott Gilton

letters@alligator.org


This is all just the start. With
each small, insignificant change
in the average citizen's rights, the
stage is set for a larger change.
The renewal of the Patriot Act
has demonstrated that this new
level of paranoia from our gov-
ernment is now the status quo.
The concept of the U.S. as a
frail and vulnerable nation has


been repeatedly encouraged by politicians in the years
since Sept. 11. Last week, President Bush claimed, "The
terrorists have not lost the will or ability to attack us.
The Patriot Act is vital to the War on Terror and defend-
ing our citizens against a ruthless enemy."
It is as if something magically changed on that day in
September when, truthfully, our nation has always been
threatened by terrorists and will be for a long time. Only
the most naive and optimistic amongst us can seriously
believe that the Patriot Act would have single-handedly "
prevented that tragedy.
When one is threatened, it is only natural to desire
safety and security. However, safety at the sacrifice of
American freedoms is no solution. Cowards and sheep
are ready to hand over anything and everything to au-
thorities in order to preserve and protect against the
chance of another terror attack. While nobody in their
right mind desires something like Sept. 11 to ever hap-
pen again, at some point we must weigh the possibility
of a terror attack against the trampling of our Founding
Fathers' intentions.

Letters to the Editor
Alligator should run more national news
As a working student, I do not have
enough time each day to sit down and watch
the news or read the paper. I, along with many
others, rely solely on the Alligator to keep me
updated on my current events, both local and
national. However, I have begun to notice that
the national news has taken a back seat.
It upsets me that you choose to print bigger,
front-page articles on Student Government
elections and fraternity philanthropies when
there are more pressing issues at hand. For me,
the most noticeable lack of coverage has been
your articles or lack thereof on abortion
and a woman's right to choose.
To say that I have been appalled by your
coverage of these issues is an understatement.
Alito's push to overturn Roe v. Wade and the
South Dakota legislation outlawing abortion
affects more people than SG elections ever
will. They deserve more than a small blurb
or second-page coverage in your paper. I can
only hope that we will be seeing more of these
issues in the near future.
Mel Balser

SG should focus on issues it can decide
What business does our elected Student
Government have arguing for hours Tuesday
night about its condemnation of genocide in
Darfur?
Forgive me for sounding cold-hearted
toward your efforts, but I didn't ask any of
you to speak for me regarding global issues; I
asked you to fix our library funding shortage,
resolve the gym towel issue, and maybe even
get the buses running on schedule.
I'm sure you'll all sleep better knowing that
you've acted like big'boys and girls playing
Congress and telling the big, bad world that


UF students are opposed to genocide. In the
time it took to debate the issue, couldn't you
have attempted to resolve any of the pertinent
matters we elected you to fix?
I doubt it would have take an all-nighter on
the third floor of the Reitz Union to declare that
we at UF have tremendous feelings against
genocide and other matters of international
humanitarianism, but you did it anyway. And
you wonder why we pretend to be talking on
our cell phones and avoiding eye contact with
you people when you're handing out fliers.
Stick to paying for bounce houses on the
North Lawn and then let the United Nations
handle genocide. Most of those guys have ac-
tually finished their political science degrees.

Kennedy once said, "Responsibility is the
greatest right of citizenship, and service is the
greatest of freedom's privileges."
Where abstinence and birth control have
failed, respect for women and responsibility
by women must succeed if we are to end the
curse of abortion. Abortion is a scourge on hu-
manity but so is the inequality and disrespect
toward women that have made that regret-
table decision.

Abortion really is tantamount to genocide
Campus Rabbi Jonathan Siger believes
that comparing genocide to abortion is a
false analogy. "Last time I checked," he said,
"there is not a great fetus civilization or race
of fetuses."
I don't believe that belonging to a great
civilization has an effect on one's worth. A
homeless person is no less worthy of life than
a university professor. An unborn child is no
less worthy of life than a 4-year-old.
One's worth and membership in the hu-
man family is established at conception.
Fetuses are a part of a race. Fetuses belong to
the human race and represent every ethnic/
racial group. Anti-lifers refuse to acknowledge
that the unwanted children whose lives they
seek to terminate are no different than the un-
wanted Jews, Native Americans, Cambodians
or Rwandans in their respective holocausts.
We will never know what great accom-
plishments the unborn children who were
aborted might have achieved, just as we will
never know what the Jews killed during the
Holocaust and the Africans killed during slav-
ery might have added to human civilization.

Office helps students be good neighbors


Students rush



to tanning beds

By LISA CURRAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Eleven minutes have passed since the timer went off, and
there is no sound coming from room No. 9.
"Don't worry, she'll be out soon," Jessica Volkman said
to her co-worker.
But the woman did not emerge from the room for 30 min-
utes. She had fallen asleep while tanning.
This scene plays out daily for Volkman; a saleswoman for
Planet Beach tanning salon in Stratford Square. She also saw
209 customers in a 12-hour period this week, which marks
the peak of the busy season for tanning salons.
"Obviously, we're busy right now because of Spring
Break," Volkman said. "When everyone gets out of school,
it's like they run here."

"We do not overcrowd our centers. I do quality
over quantity."
Greg Marlow
Tan USA owner


The average wait time is 45 minutes for the most popular
bed, the VIP lay down, which has more bulbs and wattage
and provides a quicker and better tan. At one time there can
be up to 17 people waiting for one bed, Volkman said.
"People understand," Volkman said, "and most of them
bring homework or run errands after they sign in."
In the off-season that runs from after Spring Break un-
til January, Planet Beach sees an average of 146 customers
daily, and its second location at Westgate Regency Shopping
Center is equally as busy, Volkman said.
Greg Marlow, owner of Tan USA in Oaks Mall Plaza,
doesn't think customers should have to wait for a tanning
bed.
Marlow said people have left his competitors' tanning
centers and came to his because they were upset they had
to wait.
"We do not overcrowd our centers," Marlow said. "I do
quality over quantity."
Like Planet Beach, Tan USAin the past week has also seen
an increase in business because of Spring Break.

how much they miss all their old
neighbors.
But for UF junior Mallory Gillam,
living off-campus simply has more
benefits.
Gillam said that although she
enjoyed meeting new people in
the two years she spent living on
campus and the proximity of the
dormitories to University Avenue
bars, she feels that living on campus
isn't necessary for students and off-
campus housing offers more ameni-
ties and freedom.


Since Kilroy has been the director
of off-campus life, she has started the
"Gator Guide to Off-Campus Life,"
a publication that assists students
with everything from budgeting
to when and where to pay parking
tickets. It is a yearly publication, and
the second edition will be available
May 1.
She has also helped start a com-
munity advocate program that is
a joint program between herself,
the Gainesville Police and the
University Police.
It is a six-week course that teach-
es community responsibility and
gives safety and crime prevention


information. Students can get appli-
cations from Kilroy's office, which is
located in Peabody Hall.
Kilroy has also been working to
improve the off-campus life Web
site, www.dso.ufl.edu/offcampus,
which provides information to help
students find an apartment that fits
their needs.
"I meet as many people as I can,
keep that dialogue going and con-
tinue to be a supporter of students
and advocate of students, but also
the person to help students to know
what it means to be a good neighbor,
or as I like to call it, a great Gator
neighbor," Kilroy said.


Nora Kilroy, assistant dean of students and director of off-campus life, acts as a liason between UF stu-
dents and Gainesville residents.

UF researchers develop advanced sensor technology


* THE SENSORS CAN BE
USED IN SPORTS MEDICINE.

By JONATHAN QUIGLEY
Alligator Contributing Writer

Thanks to a new develop-
ment made by researchers at UF,
dropping cell phones, personal
digital assistants and even laptop
computers may not cause as much
damage.
UF researchers have developed
a new motion sensor that is min-
iscule, easily mass-produced and


has a wide variety of applications
in electronic devices.
The research group is headed
by Huikai Xie, a UF assistant pro-
fessor of electrical and computer
engineering.
Xie said there are many other
motion sensors that have already
been, developed using mirrors or
magnets, but they cannot capture
as great a range of motion and are
less precise.
"We can have all kinds of stan-
dard electronics with the sensor,"
he said.
The new sensor is a silicon chip


about two millimeters square and
three-tenths of a millimeter thick
and can be integrated into other
electronic de-
UF vices. Suspended
S.: ; s by springs in or-
der to detect tilt
and vertical motion, the sensor
has comb-like prongs less than a
hair's width apart that surround
it to detect other directional mo-
tion.
For example, Xie said, the chip
can be included in cell phone
circuit boards to detect sudden
movements, like quick drops,


and can alert the hard drive to
shut down in order to prevent
damage. The sensors also have
applications in the medical field,
including stroke treatment and
sports medicine.
"If people get strokes, they
have problems with move-
ment and control," Xie said.
"Sometimes they cannot accu-
rately point to areas on opposite
sides of their body."
For sports medicine, not only
can the sensors be inserted into
the human body for precision
treatment, they can be used in


training.
"Athletes want to know how
they move," Xie said.
He said that for entertainment
purposes, the sensors could be
placed over various areas of the
body for translation into move-
ment in video games.
"If you can imagine, for a fight-
ing game, you can control the kick
and the punch simply by perform-
ing that action," Xie said.
Xie's research group included
two graduate students currently
working toward their doctorates,
Deyou Fang and Hongwei Qu.


Keen on being Green: Professor creates fuel from waste

His mission: take garbage, convert it to

Alex E. S. Green, 86, rides his bike to his

hard for an "old fart."
"A fart is a biomass gasification special-
ist," he said. "I make gas."
Green started his own company, Green
Liquids and Gas Technologies, in 1998 to do
just that make gas.
The company was originally created
for military operations, the World War II
veteran said, to convert consumed ready-
to-eat meals into fuel.
The company recently became active
again after an eight-month hiatus due to a
lack of funding.
He said the technology is clean with-
out the smokestacks of old trash burners.
"It's back to the future in that before
World War II, every town was making its
gas," he said. "When natural gas became
cheap, that technology disappeared, and
natural gas became the main source of heat-
ing and many other applications."
Before World War II, U.S. communities
would make their own energy by spraying
very hot coals with water. This created wa-
ter gas, which was used for street lights and
cooking, he said.
Communities stopped creating their
own energy when natural gas became
cheap after the war, Green added.
Oil accounts for 40 percent of the United
States' energy supply, with natural gas and
coal making up 23,percent each, according
to documents provided by Green.
"We can take things we are wasting
and instead of providing 3 percent of our
energy needs, we can provide 30 percent,"
Green said.
The United States is 60 percent reliant on
foreign sources of liquid fuel.
"We are particularly addicted to oil from
heavily unstable countries," Green said.
"I think that we're in deep trouble," he
added. "Energy is to a country what food is
to an individual."
He said waste can be converted to fuel


easier than coal can.
"There's no simple solution of one thing
doing it all," he said. "We have to do what-
ever we can."
However, Green said the technology has
yet to take off.
"I'm amazed that there aren't a bunch
of us on campus that are pursuing this,"
he said, noting he is one of the few inter-
ested at UF. "There's also a
Aro nd problem that public works
r .d,, .of this sort don't seem
prestigious enough for a
research university ... It's
not a traditional academic thing for reasons
that I don't understand."
Green said the garbage-to-fuel technol-
ogy needs some time in order to be imple-
mented at the household level.
"It's a tough ball game," he said of the
energy field. "I wish it had happened 20 or
so years ago when I was only 65."
In the early 1940s, Green was called
to serve his country shortly after earning
a graduate physics degree at California
Technical Institute.
He said he enjoys working with the mili-
tary because they appreciate his past work
as an Air Force operations analyst. In that
job, he modified military tactics and altered
gun sight adapters and slide rules for ef-
ficiency.
Green has studied within UF's physics
and astronomy departments. He now stud-
ies mechanical and aerospace engineering
at UF.
"People say I get bored staying with a
subject too long," he said.
Green taught his last class at UF in June
2003 but has remained active with the newly
formed Office of Sustainability, giving guest
lectures and continuing his research.
"Some people do things because it has
to be done," he said. "Why don't people do
what I'm trying to do? That's the question."

LaPorta remains questionable for Harvard series


Recovering slugger shows progress in practice


SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Alligator Staff Writer
sdvanness@alligator.org

While UF coach Pat McMahon only hinted at whether in-.
jured UF slugger Matt LaPorta would return for this weekend's
series with Harvard, he did say the 2005 NCAA home run
leader's condition is looking better than ever.


"He worked out well [Thursday] and he felt pretty good
afterwards, so we're feeling very positive," McMahon said.
LaPorta, who has suffered from a- strained oblique since
UF's series sweep of Miami from Feb. 17 through 19, has strug-
gled with pain in his rib cage, and his team has struggled at the
plate without him. He hasn't played since Feb. 22.
"Most people typically wouldn't understand that when
you're trying to swing and work hard to continue to improve


Kim Klement/ Alligator
UFjunior first baseman Matt LaPorta swings on Feb. 12 against Cincinnati. LaPorta, last season's NCAA home run
leader, has not played since the Gators' win against Florida A&M on Feb. 22.


and get your timing back," McMahon said, "there's only so
much work you can do because of this type of injury."
LaPorta's oblique injury affects many areas of the body used
in swinging, McMahon said.
And while he couldn't say when LaPorta would find his
way back into the lineup, McMahon may be banking on his
hitter's return for the start of Southeastern Conference play in
a week.
Meanwhile, the Gators must occupy themselves with
tonight's opponent, Harvard, a veteran ball dub, but one that
has yet to play this season.
The Ivy League Conference has restricted scheduling this
season because of icy conditions in the Northeast, and the
Crimson has found itself limited to indoor training during the
biting Massachusetts winter.
An off-season confined to indoor practice facilities is a
tough one, generally making it. difficult to fully prepare for
field conditions.
UF's first opponent of the season, Cincinnati, came to
Gainesville in a similar situation, stepping into an early spring
subtropical environment while a blizzard enveloped its cam-
pus hundreds of miles north.
And the results were telling. The Gators defeated the
Bearcats by a combined score of 40-8 in the three-game series.
But McMahon stresses that result isn't always the case.
Teams limited to indoor practice, he said, generally hold ad-
vantages over their outdoor competition.
"Clubs that come down after practicing indoors are going
to do some things very well," McMahon said. "Their swing
mechanics are in tune, as are their pitchers. Formerly coaching
at Old Dominion [Va.1, I'm very well aware of that.
"One thing that Harvard brings to the table is that they're a
very established and veteran team, and I know they're going to
be excited to get outside and play," he said.
While the Crimson may begin its season this weekend, the
Gators will be wrapping up a part of their own to prepare for
their upcoming SEC schedule.
McMahon said the beginning of SEC play marks a point in
the season when various team elements need to be re-exam-
ined.
One point of contention is the Gators' third starting pitcher.
Junior right-hander Kris Gawriluk, a community college trans-
fer, will look to solidify a permanent role in that position on
Sunday.


Gators recover from injuries to prep for last meets


-By CHRIS WHITE
Alligator Writer

Spring Break or not, it's hardly
time for the Gators to break stride.
After a month's worth of road
trips, the Gators will get a little time
to relax with their last two meets of
the regular season in Gainesville.
But their training won't stop for a
trip home, a little partying or even
just some sleeping in during the
break.
"I feel that we're starting to feel
that area where we're going to be
peaking soon in the next couple
weeks," UF coach Rhonda Faehn


said. "The team is ready physically,
it's just a matter of keeping them
fresh."
SThe Gators (13-2, 3-2
Southeastern Conference) will face
No. 16 Penn State (9-3) and SEC
rival No. 7 LSU (9-7, 2-3 SEC) on
Friday, and will close the regular
season a week later against Utah.
Spending the week at home,
the Gators have used the time to
rejuvenate themselves after sev-
eral gymnasts could not compete or
were limited when a minor injury
and an illness shook up the lineup
in Arizona last week.
Junior Samantha Lutz, who


rolled her ankle, will return to the
regular lineup this week after only
competing on the uneven bars at
the last meet. And after recovering
from an illness, sophomore Tiffany
Murry likely will return to compete
in three events.
The strenuous middle stretch of
the season often wears down gym-
nasts and leaves them vulnerable,
but Lutz said the end of the regular
season can be a rebirth.
"I think the postseason is like
the light at the end of the tunnel,"
she said. "A lot of times, the middle
of the season is the most strenuous
- mentally, physically and emo-


"I think the postseason is
like the light at the end of
the tunnel."

tionally but we kind of recharge
ourselves for the postseason."
And being able to get a good
night's sleep in their own beds
will go. a long way in sparking the
Gators into top form, Faehn said.
"It's a really nice change," she
said. "We've been on the road for
so long that the athletes were get-
ting tired physically and mentally.


This meet, we're looking to be at
home with our home crowd and
our support and just get back to
feeling comfortable on our own
equipment."
The comfort, however, won't
last long. The Gators will travel
to Birmingham, Ala., for the SEC
Championships the week after
Spring Break on March 25.
"We're excited about these last
two meets at home, and then going
straight into SECs," Lutz said. "A
lot of us pick up our energy, and
there's a lot of dedication, and I
think we're excited to go and be the
best team there."

UF TRACK AND FIELD


Morrison looks to make history at NCAA meet


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer

Mike Morrison might not wield the
same celebrity status as Joakim Noah or
Chris Leak, but the junior All-America is
certainly making waves in the track and
field world lately, enough to make any
Gators fan proud.
Just two weeks ago, he became the
first Southeastern Conference athlete
in 36 years to win both the high jump
and the long jump in the SEC-Indoor
Championships.
"I'm going to have a bull's-eye.on
me in this meet because I placed
first in the SEC. But right now, I'm
not on top either, so I'm also go-
ing to have a bull's-eye on some-
one else."
Mike Morrison
UFjunior


This week he will head to Fayetteville,
Ark., to compete in the NCAA Indoor
Championships.
If he wins both the high jump and the
long jump at the NCAA meet, he will
become the first athlete to do so in the
history of collegiate track and field.
"I'm going to have a bull's-eye on me
in this meet because I placed first in the
SEC," Morrison said. "But right now, I'm
not on top either, so I'm also going to
have a bull's-eye on someone else."
Morrison came into the NCAA meet
second in the high jump behind Andra


Manson of Texas and third in the long
jump behind Fabrice Lapierre of Texas
A&M and Arturs Abolins of Nebraska.
But Morrison does have experience
from last year's NCAA meet on his side.
He qualified for the meet but did not win
his events.
It's a- memory that will motivate him
this weekend in Fayetteville.
"I was- not at all satisfied with last
year's meet," Morrison said. "In the
high jump and the long jump, I kind of
pressed and didn't catch on until late. I
definitely want to go there and improve
on what I did last year."
Accompanying Morrison for the UF
men's team will be senior sprinter Sekou
Clarke, senior mid-distance runner
Shane Stroup, freshman sprinter Willie
Perry and sophomore sprinter Bernard
Middleton.
Senior throwers Rachel Longfors
and Jennifer Wynn, sophomore jumper
Natalie Knight and freshman distance
runner Shannon Leinert will represent
the UF women's team at the meet.
Longfors has been the most consistent
competitor for the women's squad this
season. She enters the meet ninth in the
weight throw.
Still, the spotlight will be on Morrison
to see if he can set history.this weekend.
"The first hurdle was the SEC meet,
but the NCAA meet will be even harder,"
he said. "It is possible to win at both. The
key is to do it one day and put it in my
mind that I can do it.
"I did that at the SEC meet. Now, I
just have to go out there and try to do it
again."

UF preps for No. 1 Georgia


* THE NO. 5 MEN'S TENNIS TEAM
WILL PLAY WITHOUT ITS TOP PLAYER
RYAN SWEETING.

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Writer

It's more than just a match.
It's more than a showdown with the No. 1
team in the country.
It's about pride. It's about bragging rights.
It's about taking a huge step toward a regular-
season Southeastern Conference title.
At least that's how the No. 5 UF men's ten-
nis team (8-2, 2-0 Southeastem Conference)
feels about its match against No. 1 Georgia (11-
0, 2-0 SEC) on Sunday at 5 p.m. in Athens, Ga.
"It's sort of like in basketball," UF coach
Andy Jackson said. "You're judged by
Kentucky [in SEC basketball]. In tennis, in this
conference, you're judged by Georgia."
The Gators will be without their top player,
Ryan Sweeting, who was suspended indefi-
nitely after he was charged with DUI and drug
possession last week. But UF has managed to
fill the void so far.
Greg Ouellette, Janne Holmia and Vladimir
Obradovic stepped up their games at the top
of the UF lineup last week to help the Gators
defeat then-No. 5 Mississippi and Mississippi
State.
"We have a lot of talent on this team,"
Jackson said. "We're not going to use some-
body being out as an excuse."
The Gators also took the doubles point both
times last weekend, a point that has been criti-
cal in their losses.


With March Madness looming, Jackson had
one more basketball analogy.
"First we have to beat Tennessee on Friday,"
Jackson said. "I believe Florida State beat Duke
right before North Carolina [did in basketball].
We can't let that happen to us."
The Gators will play the Volunteers (5-3,
0-2 SEC) today at 5 pam. in Knoxville. UF de-
feated Tennessee in the SEC
Tournament Championship
last year.
S The Volunteers lost some
S '"key players from last season,
S. and Jackson said he doesn't
.. expect to lose to them. But
She emphasized that his team
Jackn must stay focused and not be
Jackson overconfident.

WOMEN IN ACTION: The No. 6 UF women's ten-
nis team (8-1, 2-0 SEC) will try to keep its SEC
record perfect when it faces a pair of conference
teams this weekend.
First, the Gators will host Tennessee today at
the Ring Tennis Complex at 5 p.m.
UF coach Roland Thomqvist said the team's
chemistry and work ethic is right where it
needs to be.
Even after giving his team a day off on
Tuesday, the entire UF squad showed up to
work out anyway, Thomqvist said.
"To me, that just speaks volumes,"
Thomqvist said. "That tells you what they're
trying to do and trying to achieve, and that
they have goals and expectations they're trying
to meet."
UF is 28-0 all-time against the Vols.
Sunday, the Gators will host Georgia at the
Ring Tennis Complex at 1 p.m.


Gators look to rebound


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

Five hits and one run.
That's what UF's hitters did in
their three-game series against No. 5
Alabama this week.


Gators
Softball


After struggling to
establish some kind of
offensive congruity in
a series sweep,-cour-
tesy of the Crimson
Tide, the UF softball
team looks to redeem


itself this weekend in Deland at the
Stetson Tournament. It could be the
perfect opportunity for the Gators.
There will be no ranked teams
at the tournament, and Iowa State
will be the only major-conference
team that UF (17-9, 0-3 Southeastern
Conference) will face. The Gators will
also play Stetson and Canisius during
the weekend.
"It'll definitely get our confi-
dence up," senior outfielder Lindsey
Cameron said of the tournament. "It's
a hard blow to get swept by Alabama
because we know all the girls on that
team. We need a confidence boost to
go into [SEC Championships], and this
tournament will give us that. We're
looking forward to this weekend."
But that confidence may be hard to


find after getting swept in the opening
series of SEC play. After winning 11 of
12 and scoring 25 funs last weekend in
the Cox Communications Classic, the
Gators offense deflated quickly.
The Gators suffered 33 strikeouts in
the series against the Crimson Tide.
UF coach Tim Walton knows re-
storing his team's confidence is crucial
to success in conference play
"That's the most important thing,
just strive to get some confidence,"
Walton said. "If we do that, then obvi-
ously, we'll be able to build and look
forward to the next game.
"As a coach, you just have to get
them to go back out and play We
haven't coached them different today
than we did yesterday. Hopefully, we
find some inner confidence and come
forward with some good efforts."
Even with the lower level of com-
petition, Cameron knows that the UF
bats will have to improve for her team
to take the next step.
"We just have to do better offen-
sively," Cameron said. "If our bats
get hot, then well. be fine. We have to
limit our strikeouts and stay positive
while keeping to our game plan....
Tomorrow's a new day, and a new set
of teams we get to face. We're looking
forward to an opportunity to wake our
bats up."

No gambling in cards for UF at Las Vegas tournament


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Writer

The UF men's golf team will test its luck
this weekend in Sin City.
And if you ask senior Matt Every what
he looks forward to most about competing
at the Las Vegas Intercollegiate, you can bet
a black chip that he won't reply candidly.
"Gambling," he said. "No, I'm kid-
ding. We're not allowed to. It's against
[University Athletic Association] policy or
something like that. It's ridiculous the
rules they have."
While the team placed third in last


year's tournament and second in 2004, this
year may present a bit of a challenge.
"If you're on your game, you can play
real well," Every said.
"But I think the weather
is supposed to be bad
when we go out there.
I heard it might even
snow."
While the weather
forecast calls for a 40 to
Every 60 percent chance of rain
and lows dipping into the 30s, the Gators
will try to harness some of the heat they
mustered at the Puerto Rico Classic two


weeks ago.
The team will consist of the same five
competitors who placed second in that
tournament.
Every, who leads the team in stroke
average, was named to the watch list for
the 2006 Ben Hogan Award on March 1.
The award is presented annually to the top
men's golfer based on his results in colle-
giate or amateur competitions.
Currently, there are 25 golfers named to
the list, which will eventually be narrowed
down to just three before a winner is an-
nounced on May 13.
"I kind of knew I was going to get nomi-


nated," Every said. "I really think I've got a
good shot at making the final three. I think
right now I'm probably in the third spot."
Seniors Brett Stegmaier and James
Vargas, who have each earned top-20 fin-
ishes in past tournaments at the Las Vegas
Southern Highlands Golf Club, also make
their return to the course.
Freshmen Billy Horschel and Toby
Ragland will accompany the senior trio.
Back in Gainesville, the UF women's
golf team will compete at the University
Golf Course in the Lady Gator Invitational
this weekend, its only home event of the
season.

UF sophomore quartet lives, plays together


a'e Laws on, Alligator
UF forward Corey Brewer watches fellow sophomore Al Horford dunk against Jacksonville
on Dec. 18. Horford has been dubbed "the Latin Stallion" for his way with the ladies.


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer

Forget the salutations, the hellos, the
friendly banter and the telling of life sto-
ries.
That would all come in time.
The first time was about the ball, the rim
and the lines painted on the court.
It was about what would ultimately unite
them, make them stronger, into a family.
It's what made them brothers.
"As soon as we met, the first thing that
we said was 'Let's go to the gym and play,'"
the tall Dominican said.
"I'll never forget, as soon "They hN
as we got here, we were
like 'Oh what do you guys
want to do? Oh, let's go They ha\
play two on two."'
In those games between
the Dominican son of a for-
mer NBA player, the child
of a Tennessee teacher, the
son of a basketball-lifer
and the offspring of a tennis legend and a
beauty-queen, a bond was forged, one that
would ultimately be stronger than the game
that brought them together.
Al Horford, Corey Brewer, Taurean
Green and Joakim Noah have become more
than mere teammates while living in the
same apartment these past two years, more
than just a collection of players plucked
from around the nation and the world by
UF coach Billy Donovan.
They've become family.
"We're like brothers," Noah said. "We
love each other."
On the court, the "Oh-Fours" as they
have come to be known in reference to their
high school graduating class, have ushered
in a basketball renaissance in Gainesville,


could order for the others at McDonald's.
Brewer eats two McChicken sandwiches
with cheese, while Noah and Green prefer
theirs two cheeseless.
Horford prefers a pair of double cheese-
burgers.
They know each other so well that they
know each other's tendencies and what
they're likely to do in any situation.
So well that they're able to take on dif-
ferent roles within the group, be it the care-
taker or the heartthrob.
"I am the daddy of '04," Noah said.
While Noah and Green both have girl-


they're looking for somewhere to stay again
next year.
Together.
"All four years, we're going to live to-
gether," Green said. "We talk about playing
here. We want to stay all four years. We just
talk about how it's going to be, and how
we're going to see each other."
The '04's haven't yet decided whether
they're going to live on or off campus, but
an off-campus pad could present one seri-
ous problem: none of the four have a car.
For the time being they pull stunts
like wedging the 6-foot-11 Noah, 6-foot-
9 Horford and 6-foot-8


ve a great ability to put winning in front of
anything they want to do individually.

and a level of sacrifices."

UF men's basketball coach

friends, Horford apparently is the one who
does best with the ladies.
"I'm not trying to blow up nobody's
spot," Noah said. "Al does his thing; he's
the Latin Stallion."
The walls of that apartment reflect who
they are.
Posters of NBA superstars pepper
Green's.
Horford's sports a Pulp Fiction poster.
Brewer has Spiderman, while the world-
ly Noah has pictures he's clipped out of
magazines.
Noah has also gained the reputation as
the sloppiest, with Brewer coming in a close
second.
"Jo is the number one slob," Green said.
"Corey falls behind him a little bit, but Jo

Brewer all in the back seat
of a Honda Civic belong-
ing to one of Green's high
school friends.
But Green is expecting


some relief next year.
"I'm expecting [a car]
from my family next
year," Green said. "I told
my family if I don't have
a car next year there are
going to be problems."
Wherever they live and however sloppy
the place is, the bond always will exist
- the one that extends past the sidelines,
back to the where they tied a school record
by winning 24 regular-season games.
"I think it carries onto the court a lot,"
Brewer said. "The closeness is the same
way off the court as it is on the court. We
just know each other so much better, like
the way Taurean penetrates, Jo's going to
be here, Al's going to be here and I'm over
here.
"We just know each other."
And it doesn't appear that they're too
eager to get away from each other anytime
soon.
"We've got it good around here," Noah

ability to dominate and take over a game.
There's the point guard, Green, driving
down the lane, drawing a double team and
kicking out to an open teammate for an easy
bucket.
Or maybe he's on national television,
dropping 29 points on Kentucky or 23 on
Syracuse.
There's Brewer, playing on one leg in
Tennessee and nearly willing the Gators to
a win in a hostile environment or slashing
across the court for a daring steal.
There's Noah, floating effortlessly to the
hole and getting fouled, or maybe he's beg-
ging to go back in the game after a flying
elbow sent one of his teeth sailing to the
floor.
There's Horford, powering his way to the
basket or flying high above the rim to grab a
rebound out of someone else's grasp.
But no matter how they go about it,
they've done it with one thing in mind: each
other.
"They have a great ability to put win-
ning in front of anything they want to do
individually;" Donovan said. "They have a
great understanding of team concepts and a
level of sacrifices.
"They understand that I could be scoring
this amount of points, but if I did, our team
would not be as good.' They have an un-
derstanding that they have goals, but they
can't get to them' without their teammates.
We have really been able to build on what
their core beliefs are as players."
That bond, forged on 94-feet of hard-
wood, has extended far beyond the game.
The four of them shared a dorm in the
Springs complex last year. This year, the
four are again shacking up, this time in
Keys.
"I don't think you'd ever see one of us by
ourselves," Brewer says. "It's always two of

Noah's grandfather to offer sacrificial chickens for UF's NCAA Tournament success


She Gators have traveled 5,648 round-trip miles only
Sto be surprised (New Orleans, 2001: Temple), stunned
S(Chicago, 2002: Creighton), spanked (Tampa, 2003:
Michigan State), humiliated (Raleigh, 2004: Manhattan) and
humbled (Nashville, 2005: Villanova).
Luckily, Billy Donovan and Co. have a friend about 6,000
miles away thats sending the karma to Gainesville.
Zacharie Noah, Joakim's granddaddy from Cameroon,
will be tailgating African style this March.
You're all invited and there will be plenty of chicken to go
around. But please dress casual because you might get hit by
flying guts and kidneys.
Beginning with tonight's Southeastern Conference
Tournament opener against Arkansas and continuing into
next weekend's NCAA Tournament, Zacharie will become
Donovan's personal witch doctor, sacrificing chickens so the
basketball gods will finally send a little love UF's way.
It's a great motto to live by-if nothing else goes your
way, try voodoo.
When you return to class o0 March 20, the headline in the
Alligator will either read: "Misery repeats itself," or "Sweet


Lord, Gators advance" (regardless, it will be cheesy).
Instead of waking up in some strange girl's cabin on a
Caribbean.cruise, the Gators' Spring Break consists of a trip
to Nashville and a voyage of possible redemption some-
where in the United States.
Amazingly, it's been six years since UF's trip to the na-
tional title game and five years since the Gators' streak of
opening-weekend NCAA nightmares began.
Think about life in March 2001. Cell phones didn't take
photos, al-Qaeda sounded like a new Hip-Hop group and
the Gators seemed like a team destined for a decade full of
postseason glory.
Yet as we head toward the '10s, the Gators have had fewer
trips to the Sweet 16 in the last five years than Kent State and
Southern Illinois.
Even Donovan, who's watched fate kick his program in
the groin year after year, shouldn't turn down a little help
from Zacharie and a flock of chickens that will be rewarded
in the next life for their part in-the Gators' resurrection.
It's difficult to predict if the Gators will finally get that evil
chimp off their back.


But something in the air that
smells like rotisserie chicken tells me
the power of voodoo will unearth a
Sweet 16 berth.
.* .' .' While Zacharie might be able
to sway destiny, fate is truly in the
Andrew Gators' hands beginning tonight.
Abramson They'llbe challenged from the first
Drew's Control tipoff by a talented Arkansas team
aabramson@alligator.org that's playing like a conference con-
tender right now.
Win that game, and UF will likely
square off with the SEC's top dogs, Louisiana State, a team
that UF defeated in February.
And if the Gators could squeak past the Tigers and
then win the SEC title game, Donovan will punch a ticket
to Jacksonville and, probably, at least a No. 3 seed in the
NCAAs.
While Zacharie didn't have the misfortune of watching
UF's last five trips to the NCAA Tournament, he can rest
assured that any help would be greatly appreciated by the


Gators.
Everything that could have gone awry the last five years
did. Even with star center Udonis Haslem manning the
middle, the Gators fell to Temple and Creighton. Then, the
second-seeded Gators were rewarded with a second-round
game against a severely under-ranked seventh-seeded
Michigan State team.
Manhattan's army of little men schooled David Lee, and
when Lee finally stepped up against Villanova, Matt Walsh
and Anthony Roberson brought the Gators back down.
UF shouldn't have lost all those garies. I don't think a
team like the Gators could have lost all those games if they
made a conscious effort to come out on the losing end.
Now the Gators' only apparent weakness is their youth,
though Al Horford said on Wednesday that the sophomore
quartet has more than enough experience to make a run this
year.
Of course, a run to the Sweet 16 isn't easy. Everyone on
the team will have to do what they've been doing all season,
which is sacriicing individual stats for team play.
Zacharie will take care of the chickens.

Seniors going


back to NCAAs

By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer


They've gone through a resignation, a sus-
pension, painful blowout losses and court-
storming upset wins.
But as they head into the final weeks of
their careers, they've finally reached the end
of the track on their four-year roller-coaster
ride.
Brittany Davis, Dalila Eshe, Sarah Lowe
and Danielle Santos represent just one-third
of the UF women's basketball team, but their
production as seniors has allowed UF coach
Carolyn Peck to play just seven or eight play-
ers in big games.
The four UF seniors combine to account
for almost 60 percent of the team's points this
season, 56.5 percent of the team's rebounds
and more than 70 percent of the team's as-
sists.
Aside from a couple of blowout losses
to Georgia, Davis said the foursome has no
regrets so far this season heading into the
release of the NCAA Women's Tournament.
bracket Monday at 7 p.m.
The Gators reached their preseason goals
of finishing in the top five in the Southeastern
Conference, winning their first-round game
in the SEC Tournament and making the
NCAA Tournament.
Even with all that, a memory from three
years ago will linger in the seniors' minds
as they watch the selection show at Peck's
house.
They want to stay out of The Pit.
Dais and Santos admitted to checking
the Web sites, looking to see whether they
will end up in Chicago, Tucson, Ariz., Denver
or five other sites for the first two rounds.
But what they really look for is where they
might end up in the Sweet 16. One of the four
venues, Bob King Court, aka The Pit, is the
home court of New Mexico in Albuquerque.
"I was thinking about Hawaii, but it's not a
,site," Davis joked. "It's important that you're
Sin. It was loud there [in Albuquerque]."
The seniors-turned-bracketologists have
a history at The Pit. As sophomores they
played their first two rounds in the NCAA
Tournament there in 2004.
They managed to defeat New Mexico in
the first round but fell to Baylor in the sec-
ond.
But just making it to the Big Dance was
an acknowledgeable accomplishment, as
the Gators went just 9-19 the previous year.
The 10-win improvement was the greatest in
program history.
"I think it was expected," Lowe said:
"Freshman year, we did have some injuries,
like Vanessa [Hayden], who was going to
be an All-American, went out with an
injury.

Two years ago, Danielle Santos (21), Brittany Davis (32), Dalila Eshe (34) and Sarah Lowe (11) entered The Pit in their first NCAA
Tournament appearance. After a disappointing junior year, the seniors have led the Gators back to the NCAA Tournament.


went through," Lowe said.
With former UF coach Carol Ross' resig-
nation before the 2002 season and Hayden's
injury, the then-freshmen knew that an ad-
justment might take theentire season.
"We just needed time to get used to each
other," Santos said. "A new coach, five in-
coming freshmen that was obviously go-
ing to take some time for people to gel and
come together under a new system to work
together."
But after their freshman season, one
member of the class of '02 would take the
spotlight.
Forward Bemice Mosby earned the 2004
SEC Sixth Woman of the Year award and
entered her junior season as the Gators' No.
1 scoring option.
But Mosby, who is unavailable for com-
ment while sitting out this season at Baylor,
had a falling out with the team.
She reportedly fought a teammate late in
the season and sat out the first half of the en-
suing game at Georgia on Feb. 24, 2005. She

then reportedly walked out of the game at
halftime and was suspended for the remain-
der of the season.
With Mosby out of action, the Gators
finished a disappointing 14-15 and lost in
the first round of the National Invitational
Tournament.
When asked about Mosby, there was a
brief dead silence among Eshe, Lowe and
Santos.
After the pause, Santos said she still cor-
responds with her former teammate.
"I've talked to her a couple times on the
computer back and forth," Santos said. "We
kind of keep in touch. Every now and then,
we talk."
Without Mosby, and after the graduation
of seniors Tashia Morehead, Tishona Gregory
and Tamia Williams, the off-season proved
key to the Gators' return to prominence this
season.
With a top-five recruiting class coming
in, the Gators came together during summer
workouts, and the seniors' improvement
showed statistically.
The seniors averaged a combined 18.3


points per game more than last season.
Lowe emerged as the team's leader at
point guard, made clutch shots against
Louisiana State and didn't commit a turnover
at Tennessee.
Eshe made the conversion from a bench
player to an All-SEC First Team forward,
leading the Gators in scoring.
Davis did everything for UF, shooting
threes, applying full-court pressure and go-
ing up against the best bigs in the country,
including Temple's Candice Dupree, LSU's
Sylvia Fowles, Georgia's Tasha Humphrey
and Tennessee's Candace Parker.
Santos took the initiative this season,
becoming Peck's go-to shooter during criti-
cal points. While her field-goal percentage
dipped to 35.4 percent, the shooting guard
proved UF's most consistent perimeter
threat.


"This season, overall, I think we're ending
on probably our highest note," Eshe said. "We
started on a rather low note. ... This is definite-
ly our highest point since we've been here."
The four players haven't decided on their
futures, but they didn't rule out playing pro-
fessionally.
Santos and.Eshe expressed the possibility
of going back to school, Lowe has said before
that she might travel abroad and Davis said
she might intern during the summer.
But the text messaging, instant messaging
and phone calls won't stop between the play-
ers after they leave Gainesville.
"I think, as a class, we've definitely grown
closer," Lowe said. "We've gone through ups
and downs, and I think in some ways that's
brought us even more together. We've sort
of been there for each other over the last four
years."
