* STUDENT HEALTH CARE
INSURANCE NOW COVERS
THE MORNING-AFTER PILL.

By LINDSEY FRANCO
Alligator Writer

Insurance coverage for the
menu of birth control options
at the UF Student Health Care
Center will expand beyond
the pill.
The provider of UF's stu-
dent health insurance expand-
ed student coverage Thursday
to include new forms of birth
control, such as the NuvaRing,
the Depo-Provera shot, the
Ortho Evra patch and the
morning-after pill Plan B.
Nationwide Mutual
Insurance Company provides
UF students health insur-
ance through Scarborough
Company Insurance Inc.,
which is. contracted with
Student Government to offer
health insurance solely to UF
students.
Laura Tipton, a pharmacist
at the SHCC and a member of
its Pharmacy Committee, ad-
vocated for the expansion of
birth control coverage.
"We saw it was kind of
biased to offer birth control
pill coverage but not for the


ring, the shot and the patch,"
Tipton said.
Budding birth control
methods are becoming in-
creasingly more popular in
the pharmacy, she said.
Tipton said it was im-
portant for students to haZve
options for birth control
options enhanced by the
increased coverage.
"We saw it was kind of
biased to offer birth con-
trol pill coverage but not
for the ring, the shot and

"It will allow them to have
more affordable options for
pregnancy prevention," she
said.
"Everybody needs options.
Not every girl responds the
same way."
The Pharmacy Committee,
composed of doctors, phar-
macists and nurses, lobbied
Scarborough to expand cov-
erage since early January, the
company's owner said.

Gainesville asks UF to increase on-campus housing


By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Writer
jriffel@alligator.org


UF and Gainesville have different visions
for the future of student housing.
The city wants UF to build more on-cam-
pus housing so that at least 5 percent more
students can live on campus.
But UF does not plan to include this increase
in its Campus Master Plan for 2005-2015, said
UF's planning manager, Linda Dixon.

The master plan outlines the goals UF
will pursue in the next 10 years, such as the
future of transportation and housing. It also
outlines the anticipated growth of UF and its
surrounding areas.
The city's recommendations for the master
plan will be reviewed today by UF officials,
but Dixon said the university is not going to
increase on-campus housing as much as the
city has suggested.
"Right now we've reached a pretty good
equilibrium of supply and demand," Dixon

said.
Currently, UF meets its goal of housing 22
percent of students on campus, but the city
would like to see that rise by "5 percent or 10
percent or more" in the next
Around 10 years, according to the
Gainesville city's 13-page list of recom-
mendations to UF.
Teresa Scott led a team of
city staff who reviewed the master plan and
made recommendations, which they submit-
ted to UF officials at the beginning of March.

Scott said the city included the housing
suggestion to reduce the impact of students
living in single-family neighborhoods.
Students' lifestyles often create concerns
for Gainesville residents due to excessive noise
or other obtrusive behavior, Scott said.
"One of the city's recommendations for
mitigating that situation is on-campus hous-
ing," Scott said.

Law students in decline


By JOEY CHINDAMO
Alligator Contributing Writer

At UF, fewer students have been apply-
ing to law school, a trend mirrored nation-
wide.
The number of applicants has steadily
dropped since 2002, according to informa-
tion from the Levin College of Law.
Figures from the Law School Admission
Council released February show a similar
nationwide decrease.
Nicole Hudson, clerk typist for the Office
of Admissions at the Levin College of Law,
said in 2002 there were 3,359 total applicants
for the Fall and Spring terms. In 2006, there
were more than 600 fewer applicants.
Last year, UF changed its policy to only al-
low law school applications in the Fall term.
Debra Amirin, director of communica-
tions at the Levin College of Law, said this
decline in law school applicants could be
attributed to a strong economy.
"When the economy is bad, the state
of jobs is uncertain, and students typi-
cally choose to stay in school or go back to
school," Amirin said. "When the economy
is strong, however, jobs are more plentiful,
and students prefer jobs over school."
Sharon Booker, director of admissions at
the Florida State University College of Law,
said Fall 2004 was the college's peak appli-
cation year, with 4,100 total applications.
Since then, however, applications have
dropped 13 percent, to 3,280, for the Fall
term of 2006.
Similarly, the University of Miami School


of Law said it has seen a 4 percent decrease
in applications in the past year, said Therese
Lambert, director of student recruiting.
However, the trend has not been consis-
tent at all Florida schools.
Sheri Lagomarsino, assistant dean for
admissions at the Barry University School
of Law, said applications have increased by
about 600 applicants since Fall 2004, hitting
1,710 for Fall 2006.
"When the economy is strong,
however, jobs are more plentiful,
and students prefer jobs over
school."
Debra Amirin
Levin College of Law
director of communications

The Florida International University
College of Law also reported an increase
since 2004, with more than 1,500 applica-
tions received, said Nadia Castriota, assis-
tant director for admissions and financial
aid.
"We're a new school, and we're making
a name for ourselves," Castriota said. "FIU
is also the only public law school in South
Florida, so that is probably drawing more
people to apply to the school."
The Law School Admission Council re-
ported a 4.6 percent decline in nationwide
law school applications last year.
'This year, the council reported a 9.5 per-
cent decline in applications.

Teacher retention program seeking to expand scope


* A UF PROFESSOR CREATED THE
PROGRAM TWO YEARS AGO.

By MELISSA JACOBS
Alligator Contributing Writer

A UF program designed to encourage
teacher retention in three urban Florida high
schools is looking to expand after a successful
two-year run.
The program, "Out of Isolation, Into
Collaboration," is part of the urban teacher
induction and retention support network
created by UF education professor Wanda
Lastrapes.
A $90,000 grant provided by BellSouth
allowed Lastrapes to form what she called
"learning communities" at three inner-city
high schools in Jacksonville, Miami and
Orlando.
However, the BellSouth grant is coming to
an end after two years, and Lastrapes is look-


ing for new ways to continue and expand it
since BellSouth began focusing its funding on
technology-oriented programs.
"Regardless of grant renewal, we are confi-
dent that the schools that have experienced the
program will be able to continue implement-
ing the strategies for mentors and novices,"
Lastrapes said. "We are so proud of how far
we've come."
The project links novice teachers with expe-
rienced mentor teachers to encourage them to
remain in a challenging work environment.
The program is part of UF Alliance, which
was created in 1999. The UF Alliance is a col-
laborative effort between UF, the College of
Education and six Florida high schools in
three cities.
"All of our programs are important, but
what Wanda Lastrapes is doing for urban
teacher retention is so beneficial because it
is something that will have lasting effects on
inner-city school systems," said Mickie Miller,
associate director for the UF Alliance.


The urban teacher retention project has
only been implemented in three of those
six Alliance partner schools, including Jean
Ribault Senior High School in Jacksonville,
Maynard Evans High School in Orlando and
Miami Carol City Senior High School in Opa-
Locka.
When Lastrapes served as a site liaison in
Jacksonville schools, she noticed
LOCal a huge turnover in teachers,
News with almost 40 percent leaving
within their first three years on
the job. This experience inspired her to create
similar programs in other schools.
Lastrapes said she created her first support
network at Jean Ribault Senior High School
by appointing professionals to meet with new
teachers after school. This program eventually
grew into the larger network that exists today.
"I decided that this framework could
be replicated across more schools and ap-
proached BellSouth for support," Lastrapes
said. She received a two-year grant to be used


at three of the six schools in the Alliance pro-
gram. It officially began in 2004.
The program gives what Lastrapes called
"survival skills" to the more inexperienced
faculty members.
There are now 57 novice teachers and 15
mentor teachers taking part in the project at
Sthe three schools. Last year, 65 percent of nov-
ice teachers and 95 percent of mentor teachers
who participated in the program returned to
their respective schools to teach in the 2005-
2006 academic year, Lastrapes said.
"We really do believe that the project has
contributed in so many positive ways to the
educators involved," Lastrapes said.
At Miami Carol City Senior High School,
the effects of the program are widespread,
said Marie Alphonso, an inclusion coach for
exceptional education students.
"At one time, new teachers were just given
the key to a classroom and told to begin, but
now we have a support system in place to ease
them into the job," she said.


Student health insurance now covers new, popular forms of birth control


CONTRACEPTIVES, from page 1

Rick Scarborough said his company agreed with
the committee's logic.
In turn, he proposed the idea to Nationwide
Insurance, which approved the increased coverage
last week.
"It gives students a lot more choices for what
methods they might choose to use," Scarborough
said.
Students can fill up to a two-month prescription
of birth control pills at the SHCC. ;.
However, the new expansion only allows stu-
dents a one-month prescription of the newly cov-
ered birth control forms.


Student health insurance now covers several birth control options at the UF Student Health Care Center. How the new coverage
works: The coverage will allow women to fill up to a two-month prescription of birth control pills at the SHCC or a one-month
prescription of the newly-covered forms of birth control.

SG Cabinet faces position cuts


By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

During what promises to be a
marathon meeting tonight, Student
Senate will determine its next officers,
swear in newly elected members and
revote on whether to cut the size of the
Student Government Cabinet.
The body will hold two meetings
to review this evening's business,
the first of which will include all
departing senators attending their
final Senate session. At that meeting,
senators will revote on a controversial
measure to trim SG's sprawling cabi-
net from 44 directors to 10 secretaries.
Cabinets are designed to work with
the Gainesville community and create
programs for students based on cam-
pus issues. The SG Cabinet operates
under Student Body Vice President
Joyce Medina's supervision.
The legislation aiming to downsize
the Cabinet, which was authored by
Medina and Student Body President
Joe Goldberg, has proved controver-
sial among senators who believe it
may overburden potential secretaries.
"I'm upset that none of this was
bih"aght up during the [bill's] first
reading," Medina said Sunday.


During Senate's March 7 meet-
ing, the Cabinet bill was delayed by
inconsistent voting records.
After taking a .final vote on the
Cabinet bill tonight, outgoing sena-
tors will validate Spring's election re-
sults, which were verified by the SG
Election Commission before Spring
Break.
Once the body has confirmed the
election, new senators can be sworn
in and new Senate officials elected.


Four political parties will be rep-
resented in the new Senate, but the
Swamp and Gator parties will domi-
nate that group with about 75 percent
of the 90 senators.
Candidates for Senate president
include Sen. Lauren Mierley, who con-
firmed her candidacy Monday night.
"I'm totally honored at the oppor-
tunity to be able to run," said Mierley,
who is vice chairwoman of the Budget
& Allocations Committee.


Who fills Senate's seats?
28 Gator Party senators (elected Fall 2005)


-. .. 26 Swamp Party senators (elected Spring 2006)


S 12 Unite Party senators (elected Spring 2006)
," L
5 Impact Party senators (elected Fall 2005)


5 independent senators
Newly sworn senators will elect a College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
senator at tonight's meeting for a race that ended in a tie.

Alumni now help

UF raise funds

where UF personnel sometimes share their depart-
ments' needs.
"We're the friend-raisers, they're the fund-rais-
ers," said Jeff Jonasen, a member of the Alumni
Association Board of Directors and president of
the Central Florida Gator Club.
Jonasen served as Student Body president of
UF and graduated in 1988. He works as a business
lawyer in Orlando.
He said many of his friendships and business
connections were formed during his time at UF,
and he became a lifelong member of the Alumni
Association to keep those relationships strong.
Jonasen saw a significant change in the asso-
ciation's policy when it began to collect dues in
the mid-1980s. Before that, it was open to alumni,
dues-paying Gator Club members and those who
had donated to the university.
Today, $40 a year will allow anyone, alum
or not, to be a member in both the Alumni
Association and the Gator Club network.
Gator Clubs, which host viewings of Gators
sports games and other events, are located
throughout Florida and in most metropolitan
areas nationally.


Gainesville wants UF to reduce student impact in single-family neighborhoods


PLAN, from page 1


slim" that UF would incorporate the hous-
ing increase in the master plan, but she said
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan thought the team
should at least ask.
Although UF will not be committing to
the city's recommended 5 percent increase,
Dixon said there are plans to add at least 800
new units of on-campus housing in the next
10 years. UF has added 623 more units from
2000 to 2004, but because of growing student


enrollment it was just enough to maintain the
22 percent.
And UF planners have found that housing
22. percent of enrolled students means that
"the university experiences neither long wait-
ing lists nor high vacancies," according to a
housing data and analysis report.
Dixon said UF will give Gainesville offi-
cials the analysis to back up their decision to
keep their housing goal the same.
"We feel we've come up with a strategy
that-makes sense for us and what we think
makes sense for our community," Dixon said.


She also said UF must take into account off-
campus housing competition before building
new units.
"We've noted there is a lot of development
of student housing in the private sector off-
campus, and that is a competition to our on-
campus housing," Dixon said.
UF planners do not want to build more
housing than students demand because the
revenue for construction is paid for by student
residents, Dixon said.
Even if UF does not incorporate the city's
housing suggestion, Gainesville officials have


been pursuing other solutions to students' bad
behavior in single-family neighborhoods. City
commissioners have considered strengthening
city codes and their enforcement.
Gainesville residents can express their
opinions regarding UF's master plan at the
next public hearing, which will be held in the
President's Ballroom in Emerson Alumni Hall
on March 29.
This will be the last opportunity for the pub-
lic to comment before the Board of Trustees,
UF's highest governing body, approves the
master plan at their meeting March 31.

Martyred

Afghan government fails

to provide human rights
Four and a half years since the Taliban last ruled in
Afghanistan with the steely fist of Islamic fundamen-
talism, and we wonder how much things have really
changed.
News of an Afghan man being sentenced to death for
renouncing Islam and converting to Christianity wouldn't
exactly allay our fears.
Yet that's a very real possibility for Abdul Rahman, who
faces a trial and potential execution for switching faiths.
Rahman actually converted to Christianity some 16 years
ago in Pakistan. His offense rose to the attention of Afghan
prosecutors in 2002 when he sought to gain custody of his
two children from his own parents.
His parents ratted him out to the Afghan police, who
found a Bible on him at the time of his arrest.
But besides being human tragedy, the story-of Abdul
Rahman illustrates that while the Taliban may officially be
in exile, real change for the Afghan population may still be a
long way away. And perhaps most disturbingly, that may be
just what many Afghans want.
Far from instantly ushering in a brave new era of freedom
and happiness for the Afghan people, the U.S. invasion of
2001 brought about only a limited number of compromises
between human rights and religious doctrine in the Afghan
legal system.
While the rights of minority religions are somewhat more
protected than they were under the Taliban, Muslims remain
subject to a strict interpretation of Sharia fundamentalist law.
That law, codified in the Afghan constitution after consulta-
tion with the Afghan public, forbids Muslims from abandon-
ing the Islamic faith.
Hence the plight of Rahman.
We can scarcely expect Rahman to receive even the illu-
sion of a fair trial. Judge Alhaj Ansarullah, who will oversee
the case, told British newspaper The Times, "In this country
we have the perfect constitution; it is Islamic law and it is il-
legal to be a Christian and it should be punished."
The prosecution seems equally unwilling to reconsider
the Rahman case. "He would be forgiven if he changed back,
but he said he was a Christian and would always remain
one," said prosecutor Abdul Wasi. "We are Muslims and
becoming a Christian is against our laws. He must get the
death penalty."
With logic like that, we don't know how the prosecution
could go wrong.
Rahman can't even look to Afghanistan's U.S.-backed
-president, Hamid Karzai, for help. Though Karzai professes
the desire for a more liberal, secular government, his office
has said he will not get involved in the case.
We have to wonder how the United States could let
something like this happen after our takeover. After all, one
of the ostensive reasons that we evicted the Taliban, besides
their harboring of al-Qaida, was their imposition of Islamic
fundamentalism on Afghanistan. To see that fundamental-
ism remain in spite of the Taliban's absence is, in a word,
disheartening.
It also forces us to recognize that human rights may not
always be a corollary of democracy. President Bush has long
preached that the two are inseparable.
But for Abdul Rahman, persecuted for his religion in a lib-
erated Afghanistan, that couldn't be farther from the truth.

~A W~ HE M wALL OF

NO Civl WAR

N IN IRAQ TO1AM)


Three years in, Iraq isn't much better


W ith the war in Iraq entering its fourth year,
things look grimmer than ever.
Across the country, mosques lie in ruins.
Sunnis and Shiites are killing each other at a clip of about
50 a day. The Kurdish North has seceded in all but name.
Worst of all, the fledgling Iraqi government is on track to
become a full-blown theocracy.
In other words, the administration has botched liter-
ally every one of its objectives. Saddam's weapons of
mass destruction never materialized. Ditto democracy. As
for the issue of human rights, well, you can ask Lynndie
England's playthings how that turned out.
Now we're just struggling to maintain order, and the
new Iraqi army isn't much help. After three years of train-
ing, only one battalion is ready for combat.
Of course, that hasn't stopped the administration from
putting on a good show. Operation Swarmer, last week's
air assault on Samarra, was touted as the biggest offensive
since "Shock and Awe" in 2003.
But, despite the cool name, Swarmer was just a photo
op. According to- reporters on the scene, U.S. and Iraqi
forces met no resistance, captured no insurgents and
didn't even fire a shot in anger.
Like the "rescue" of Jessica Lynch from an abandoned
hospital, Operation Swarmer was staged from beginning
to end. But why?
For-one thing, the war is less popular than ever. In a
recent poll, only 29 percent approved of President Bush's
handling of the situation in Iraq. Republicans are worried,
with good reason, that Democrats will ride this discontent
to big gains in November.
But if the Iraqi troops somehow learned to stand up
on their own why, then Bush could declare victory and
bring our boys home.


And so, the American news-
watching public is entertained
with a sham offensive against an
enemy that isn't there. Granted,
the Iraqis looked sharp in their
new uniforms. But they're no bet-
Jake Ramsey ter trained than they were last year
Thus Spake Jake which is to say, not well trained
letters@alligator.org at all.
I suppose I should be happy.
The administration is finally laying
the groundwork, however dishonestly, for a withdrawal
from Iraq. But I can't shake this nagging feeling of guilt.
We invaded a foreign country, disbanded its army and
police and watched as looters ransacked its greatest cul-
tural treasures. Our army presided over the total collapse
of Iraq's economy, its power and water systems, and its
civil society.
Now the country may break up along religious or eth-
nic lines if we don't manage our exit carefully. Showing
off a phony Iraqi army, declaring victory and then going
home just won't cut it. Call me crazy, but I don't trust this
administration to do the right thing.
That's why this November I won't vote for any candi-
date Democrat or Republican who doesn't propose
an explicit timetable for ending the war.
Relying on vague, secret conditions for an American
withdrawal from Iraq (in other words, winging it) will
only prolong the violence. If the administration and its
supporters in Congress don't realize that, let's hope a
good beating at the polls this November will make them
see sense.

Letters to the Edijto
Circumcision deserves its own display
I'd like to suggest a display in contrast
to the Genocide Awareness Project cam-
paign.
I had the misfortune of being circum-
cised as a child, and I know that the expe-
rience was excruciating, humiliating and
completely unnecessary.
Circumcision is inflicted on millions
of baby boys each year as a result of reli-
gious bias. Because of the extreme trauma
involved in this procedure, I believe it is
unethical (and downright unconscionable)
to permit the surgery without the patient's
fully informed consent. Large displays of
this bloody procedure, and the agony on
the faces of those babies affected, would
illustrate just how violent and unethical
circumcision is.


E E E


which would cry in terror, which would
scream with pain, which would be cogni-
zant of danger, fear or pain at all?
This isn't a rhetorical question.
Do you or any metaphysical dogmatists
disconnected from reality really believe
that?
The commitment to the magic mantra
"life begins at conception" has impeded
research that may prove to alleviate the
suffering of millions, all because a zy-
gote has been placed in a false dichotomy
with a suffering, feeling, crying, thinking,
laughing child.
Asinine devotion to this spiritual ideol-
ogy is not commendable; it's merely a pipe
dream that costs real people their basic
rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness.

Human life doesn't begin at conception
I can only cringe inside as I read the
bald assertions that abortion is equiva-
lent to genocide, and Marshall Kornegay
declaim the worn-out platitude, "An un-
born child is no less worthy of life than a
- ear-old."
Does anyone really believe that? -
If you are caught in a burning build-
ing with a crying toddler on one side and
a zygote in a petri dish on the other, and
you only have the opportunity to save one,


U..

Melone should show real thankfulness
For once, I agree with Matt Melone's
"Taking Up Arms" article from Monday.
If you see a serviceman or veteran, thank
him or her for his or her service. Buy them
a beer or an order of cheesy fries.
And while you're at it, buy them. the
armor for their Humvees.
Come to think, get them an order of
armored helmets, too.


Why not add POW training to that list
of must-haves? Our brave men and women
deserve the best training and equipment
when we ask them to put their health and
lives on the line.
Tell them we don't agree with Donald
Rumsfeld and L. Paul Bremer and their
failure to prepare for the occupation.
Tell them we think the National
Guardsmen's families deserve the same
benefits that active-duty families get when
the National Guard is asked to fight over-
seas for an extended period of time.
Finally, thank those brave men and
women by ensuring their Veterans Affairs
benefits are fully funded and their families
will be taken care of.
And if Matt really wanted to show his
appreciation, he would literally "Take Up
Arms" and be thankful in person.
If he decides to take up that challenge
and put down his Spring Break beach
towel and green beer, maybe next time
he'll know how to really show his appre-
ciation.

Misquote used to further political aims
Andrew Bare wrote in his March 8
column, which can only be described as a
pro-Israel monologue, that we should re-
member the words of Martin Niemoeller.
Then he misquoted the man by stating,


"First they came for the Jews ... ."
I acknowledge that there are numerous
versions of this statement, some originat-
ing from Niemoeller himself, and other
versions stemming from various speakers.
The version claimed by the Martin
Niemoeller Foundation begins, "First they
came for the communists ... ." In almost
all other versions, the communists are
listed first, usually followed by the Social
Democrats and Labor Unionists before
"they came for the Jews."
There is even a version in the
Congressional Record, quoted by Al Gore,
which says that after the Jews they came
for the Catholics. This variant is consid-
ered by historians as unlikely to have
any connection to Pastor Niemoeller, yet
it persists.
Niemoeller's sermons included the
handicapped, who were exterminated by
the Nazis, supposedly to rid the state of
the burden of their care.
I agree with Bare when he declares that
we should all remember Niemoeller's
words.
However, since I am not Jewish but I
am a Socialist and Labor Unionist, I hope
that none will forget that those who shared
my social philosophy were, as stated by
Niemoeller, the first victims of the Nazis.
Shame on Bare for his elevation of the Jews
as the principal victims of the Nazis while
misquoting Niemoeller to sell his line.

UF coach Billy Donovan watches as the Gators defeat Louisiana
State at the Southeastern Conference Tournament on March 11.

Fans and pundits alike have spent the last six years
discussing the reasons for UF's NCAA Tournament
woes.
The answers varied, but Monday, UF coach Billy
Donovan finally offered his take on why his teams had
come up short when it mattered the most.
"Sometimes it has to do with your team, your chem-
istry, your make-up," Donovan said. "Flat out, the last
several years, being totally honest, we weren't good
enough to advance."
That's a rather curious statement from a coach whose
teams have featured Udonis Haslem, Matt Bonner,
Teddy Dupay, Jistin Hamilton, Brett Nelson, David Lee,
Matt Walsh and Anthony Roberson.
But if performance in the NCAA Tournament is in-
deed the measuring stick, Donovan has a point about his
squads not being good enough.
In every one of the Gators' early exits during the last
five years, they have lost to a lower-seeded team, three
of which were seeded 11th or lower. Donovan thinks
those UF teams, unlike this year's squad, probably
weren't constructed to succeed in the postseason.
"They didn't advance far enough in the tournament,"
Donovan said. "But maybe some of our past teams
weren't built to make a deep run in the tournament.
"To me, [Anthony] Roberson, [Matt] Walsh and
[David] Lee, those guys did a great job, but we were a
very predictable team. When you start to play better and
better and better teams and you become that predict-
able, its hard."
What may make these Gators different, however, is
the balance in their lineup and their depth, which will
greatly aid them Friday in their Sweet 16 matchup with
seventh-seeded Georgetown in Minneapolis, Minn.
The Hoyas, one of three teams this season to de-
feat the Tournament's overall No. 1 seed, Duke, run a


Princeton-style offense under Coach John Thompson IlI.
It's a technique he brought with him when he was hired
away from the Ivy League school two seasons ago.
Donovan and the Gators have compared
Georgetown's attack, which is predicated on players
cutting to the basket without the ball, to Vanderbilt's
style of play.
But unlike the Commodores, the Hoyas' system
is anchored by a 7-foot-2, 283-pound center in Roy
Hibbert. The sophomore scored 20 points and pulled
down 14 rebounds in the Hoyas' 70-52 victory against
second-seeded Ohio State on Sunday.
While past UF squads have bowed out to lower-
seeded teams like the Hoyas, this year's Gators sport


"Flat out, the last several years, being
totally honest, we weren't good enough


to advance."


Billy Donovan
UF basketball head coach


five players averaging double figures in scoring and at
least three reserves capable of significant contributions
off the bench.
"When Lee Humphrey's not shooting the ball,
[Joakim] Noah and [Al] Horford can take over,"
Donovan said. "When Noah and Horford aren't, we
have different elements."
While Donovan admitted that he would love for his
team to be built to make a deep run in the Tournament
every year, he wouldn't say that he's changed his re-
cruiting and team-building philosophies-as a result of
past NCAA failures. He won't even take credit for coor-
dinating UF's current success.
"I didn't know it was going to work out like this,"
Donovan said. "Listen, I could sit here and say, 'Oh, I
knew it, and I really went out and did a great jobAnd
pieced this thing together.' That would be a lie."


Graduating Gators leave coach with tough off-season


* ONE STARTER WILL RETURN TO
UF'S ROSTER NEXT SEASON.

TUCSON, Ariz. Before her team headed
to the Southeastern Conference Tournament
nearly three weeks ago, UF women's basket-
ball coach Carolyn Peck already knew what
lay ahead.
A day after defeating then-No. 5 Tennessee
in Knoxville, she said that her toughest assign-
ment would come after the SEC and NCAA
tournaments.
That's when seniors Brittany Davis, Dalila
Eshe, Sarah Lowe and Danielle Santos would
exchange UF jerseys for caps and gowns.
Peck said that the upcoming off-season
would be the toughest of her four-year career


at UF, as she is faced with filling the void left
by the four seniors while continuing to mature
five freshmen.
Monday, two days after UP lost in the first
round of the NCAA Tournament, she again
looked toward the future of the program.
"I want for our underclassmen to look at
what hard work does and how it pays off,"
Peck said.
That hard work took the Gators from a pre-
season No. 7 team in the SEC to tied for fifth at
season's end with a 21-9 record, the best dur-
ing Peck's tenure.
The Gators checked off all three of their
preseason goals: finishing in the top five in
the SEC, winning their first-round game in
the SEC Tournament and making the NCAA
Tournament field.
"Absolutely, it has been the best season [at
UF]," Peck said. "Its not just based on wins
and losses. There have been very minimal
off-court issues, and the chemistry is the best


it's been."
But it could have been better. Before up-
setting then-No. 2 Louisiana State on Senior
Night, UF lost by 18 to South Carolina.
A week after LSU, the Gators stumbled at
Auburn, losing by 15 a week before the win at
Tennessee.
Then came Saturday's
83-59 loss to New Mexico,
which sent the Gators back
to Gainesville two days ear-
lier than planned.
S "When you set those
goals, you always want a
Peck little bit more," Peck said. "I
don't want that to overshadow the things that
we accomplished this year. ... There were a lot
of individual improvements, and the players
continued to grow and mature."
The maturation process will continue in
two weeks when the Gators begin their off-
season program, Peck said.


The Gators' only returning starter, fresh-
man guard Sha Brooks, was the only under-
classman to average more than 15 minutes a
game this season.
Brooks, a 5-foot-7 three-point specialist,
should become UF's primary offensive option
and see her scoring increase from her 13.7-
point average this season.
Forward Marshae Dotson, the Gators'
strongest player, should compliment Brooks.
Dotson proved Peck's best scoring option off
the bench this season, averaging 6.8 points per
game.
More experienced players, like sophomore
guard Depree Bowden, junior guard Kim Dye
and junior forward Briana Phillips, should
also see increased playing time next season.
"Well find a way to replace [the seniors],"
Peck said. "It may not be doing things the ex-
act same way as we did this year. I think it's
going to be important for the group as a whole
to step up."

BASEBALL

McMahon to face alma mater


Gators look to regroup


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer


Thirty years ago, a young Pat McMahon re-
ceived his first taste of coaching in the college
ranks.
When a bout with kidney stones sidelined
former Stetson coach Jim Ward, McMahon, then a
student assistant for the Hatters,'assumed Ward's
pc.tion for a 10-game stretch, going 7-3.
Three decades later, McMahon, who also
pitched for two seasons at Stetson, is looking for
his fifth straight victory against his former team.
Coming off a series victory against Arkansas to
open the Southeastern Conference schedule, the
No. 9 Gators (17-7) will host the Hatters (10-12)
tonight at 6:30 p.m.
"Obviously, I have great feelings for Stetson
University as my alma mater," McMahon said. "It
is a university that means an awful lot to me for so
many different reasons."
Despite his connection to Stetson, McMahon
insisted that winning is never bittersweet, no mat-
ter the opponent.
"I love the University of Florida, and I am so
proud to be here," McMahon said. "And so, as
much as we all love to compete, [my feelings for
Stetson are] out of the equation. Once you play the
game, the game to me is the focus of attention."
The Gators, who have won eight of their last
nine games, overcame a seven-run deficit in the
seventh inning of the series finale against Arkansas
on Sunday. Its a rally the Gators hope will serve
as a momentum-builder and a message to UF's
opponents.
"The way we won [Sunday], it is huge," first


baseman Matt LaPorta said. "It shows our team
and it shows everybody else in the country that
we are not quitting until the last out is made in the
ball game."
For LaPorta, who missed 13 games before re-
turning to the lineup Friday, the midweek game
is a great opportunity to regain his rhythm offen-
sively before UF returns to conference play this
weekend.
"I feel good out there," he said. "I am not back
to where I need to be, but it is only a matter of time.
I need about 25 or 30 at-bats be-
fore I get back into the groove of
things."
The Gators, who have yet to
name a starter, may be leaning
toward sophomore right-hander
Tommy Wynn (0-0, 4.05 ERA).
On the mound for Stetson
McMahen will be left-hander Nathan Nery
(2-2, 5.79 ERA). The junior, who
threw eight scoreless innings March 14 against
Yale, was named the Atlantic Sun Pitcher of the
Week on Monday.
"Stetson has an outstanding baseball tradition
going back a long time," McMahon said. "They're
perennial league champions, or in the hunt for
that, and they're a perennial regional team.
"They return a lot of players that are very fa-
miliar with us, as we are with them. It is a tough,
tough midweek challenge for us."
But might it be a bigger challenge if McMahon
was still able to take the mound for the Hatters?
"I think that would be a little different deal,"
a laughing McMahon said. "It would be interest-
ing."

The No. 14 UF men's tennis
team has had nine days to think
about its disappointments.
And there have been a lot of
them lately.
First, the Gators lost their
No. 1 ranking with two losses
at the National Team Indoor
Championships.
Then, freshman Ryan Sweeting,
UF's No. 1 singles player, was sus-
pended following a DUI and drug
charge.
UF coach Andy Jackson has
since said Sweeting will not play
for UF this season.
After that, the Gators lost a team
match point against Tennessee.
Two days later, UF played
another team match point against
No. 1 Georgia but left Athens with
one more Southeastern Conference
loss.
"We played well, we played
hard," Jackson said. "We were one
point away, and we didn't get it
done. That's part of sports."
With an SEC regular-season
crown seemingly out of reach, the
Gators will try to regroup today


when they face No. 7 Illinois at 3
p.m. at the Ring Tennis Complex.
And the Illini are dearly a na-
tional championship contender,
Jackson said.
It will not be a matter of men-
tally and emotionally preparing
for the match like the Gators did
against Tennessee and Georgia, he
said. Rather, Jackson said his team
must focus on physically prepar-
ing to contend with some of the
nation's best.
"We were one point away,
and we didn't get it done.
That's part of sports."
Andy Jackson
UF coach

Sophomore Greg Ouellette will
likely continue to play No. 1 singles
for the Gators.
And despite the absence of
Sweeting, Jackson said he's happy
with the team he has.
"It doesn't look like things are
going well for us because we're
losing," Jackson said. "But we got a
team, and we're going to have suc-
cess this year."
