UF files suit



against co-op

By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

UF filed a lawsuit against the Collegiate Living
Organization this week for rights the university said it
had in the first place.
The low-cost student co-op's attorney, Scott Krueger,
said Thursday afternoon that he was not aware of the
lawsuit. The suit was filed Tuesday.
"We are irritated, to say the least,"
Krueger said.
University officials want a court to
deem UF the property's main authority,
according to court documents.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the
university does not comment on pend-
Rollo ing legal matters, but he insisted that
Rlo Krueger had been notified of the suit.
But Krueger said he believes UF has ulterior motives.
UF officials have expressed concern all semester that
the 33-year-old building is a danger to the near 70 stu-
dents who live there. They say it needs $750,000 worth of
repairs.
But an official e-mail Krueger obtained suggests that
UF's position was different before a November inspection
on the building.
The e-mail, from Associate Vice President for Student
Affairs Mike Rollo, dated August 2005, read: "Most [prob-
lems] appear to be easily solved and may not cost any-
thing other than time to make changes or repair items."
The assessment was given after a review of the building
by the fire marshal.

Student hit by car near campus


By DOMINICK E. TAO

A UF student was struck by an
SUV while on his way to lunch
Wednesday afternoon.
Brian Cattani, 21, was on a
crosswalk at Northwest 18th
Street near Smoothie King when
a silver RAV4 hit his left knee as it
turned onto University Avenue.
Cattani, a sports management
major, said he hobbled out of the
street after the accident, fearing


he might be struck again by an-
other car.
He said the driver just took
off.
Cattani said he
Local was taken to Shands
News at UF for an MRI.
The hospital did
not find any serious injuries, but
Cattani said his leg was "pretty
swollen."
He was on his way to Tijuana
Flats for lunch with his brother
and some friends.


"Other than the pain, it's all
right," Cattani said. "I'm not
angry."
Cattani said an Alachua
County Sheriff's Deputy who was
in Smoothie King was one of the
first people to come to his aid.
Gainesville Police Department
Sgt. Keith Kameg said police
have not yet been able to file a
report.
"Wow," Cattani said to him-
self after the accident. "What just
happened?"

The. disease has touched
hundreds in the UF community.
Together, they will honor the
memory of lost loved ones and
celebrate survivors at UF's sec-
ond Relay for Life, which begins
today at 6 p.m. in the Stephen C.
O'Connell Center.
Organizers expect about 600
participants, 75 percent of whom
are UF students, said Jamie
Bellamy, community representa-
tive for the Florida division of the
American Cancer Society.
The relay is composed of 54
teams of about 10 to 15 people,
Bellamy said. The teams have
already raised about $35,000
through online donations.
During the event, each team
must keep one member on the
track either walking or running
laps at all times, Betters said.
Doing this symbolizes the real-
ization that cancer never sleeps.
The 18-hour event includes
games and performances to keep
participants awake, Betters said.
There is also a theme to make
it more fun, Bellamy said. This
year's theme is television shows.
Teams will dress up and decorate
their campsites based on shows
like "Survivor." An award will
be given for the best campsite.
The heart of every relay event
is the Luminaria Ceremony and

said. The Luminaria Ceremony

STATE NEWS


Bill would limit public access to e-mail addresses


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

Abillin Tallahassee aims to make
it harder for marketers to get e-mail
addresses from state agencies to
help in the war against spam.
The bill's author, Florida Sen.
Gwen Margolis, D-Aventura, said
she wants e-mail addresses removed
from all state records when released
and requestors to be limited to ob-
taining five e-mail addresses.
Some legal experts believe stu-
dents' e-mail addresses at a public
university could be considered pub-
lic information.


"If you give your e-mail out, you
give it to people who are personally
dose to you," Margolis said. "You
don't give it to the world."
Margolis noted that she is unsure
if the bill would protect university
students from marketers requesting
their addresses.
Florida's open records laws state
that anyone should be able to get a
list of e-mail addresses used by a
state agency, she said.
UF spokesman Steve Orlando
said.UF does not see the bill as a top
priority.
Senate Bill 1448 "temporar-
ily passed" the Governmental
Oversight and Productivity


Committee on Wednesday, meaning
the committee will look at an altered
bill in the future. Margolis said she
is working on making the bill more
specific about what documents and
employees it targets.
Margolis said the issue came to
her attention when.a citizen from an
affluent community she represents
told her local vendors could ask
and receive all e-mail addresses that
communicated with the city.
But First Amendment
Foundation President Barbara A.
Petersen said there are issues with
the bill, ranging from the ideological
to the specific.
"It doesn't make any sense,"


"If you give your e-mail out,
you give it to people who
are personally close to
you. You don't give it to the
world."
Gwen Margolis
Florida State senator

Petersen said. "You have no expecta-
tion of-privacy with your e-mail ac-
counts. It doesn't pass constitutional
muster. We don't create exceptions
to the constitution so that people
won't be bothered by a few spam."
Residents and government


employees just need better spam
blockers, she said.
"There is a very practical solu-
tion," she said. "You always have a
delete button."
Petersen said the bill repre-
sents an exemption to the Florida
Constitution. She said inquirers
would not know who a univer-
sity president was communicating
with.
"It would add inordinate de-
lays to your right of access," she
said.
Because the bill will amend
Florida's public records Sunshine
Laws, it requires a two-thirds vote
in the Senate to pass.


UF officials release list of Facebook dangers, guidelines


* STUDENT AFFAIRS SAYS THE WEB
SITE MAY WASTE STUDENTS' TIME.

By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Writer
acancino@alligator.org

Some are moderate. Others are liberal.
Some look drunk. Others are half-naked. Most
have pictures, send messages funny or per-
verted and create groups. They all have one
thing in common: a Facebook.com profile.
But UF officials want the members of this
online community to be more careful with
their personal information.


UF's Division of Student Affairs recently
released a page-long list of suggestions for
students to be careful with the pictures and
information they post on their profiles.
"'Partying' and 'boozing' probably don't
qualify as hobbies or interests," the document
reads.
More than 35,000 UF students, alumni,
faculty and staff have profiles listed on the
Facebook, and nearly 20,000 of them visit
the site daily, according to the Student Affairs
document.
Earlier this semester, UF officials warned
student leaders such as resident assistants
- to scrub alcohol-related photos and mes-
sages from their profiles because they could


be fired.
While some students are aggravated by the
latest document arguing that the university
should not get involved in students' personal
lives others think that having
-.: : a profile with too much infor-
News mationmightbe dangerous.
"Avoid posting pictures that
might cast you in a negative light," the docu-
ment reads. "If you would not want the photo
on the front page of a local newspaper, you
probably shouldn't have it on Facebook.com."
The document also tells Facebook users
to adjust their privacy settings and limit who
can view their profiles. But not all students are
aware of the dangers of having their informa-


-tion available on the Web site, which is used
by hundreds of universities nationwide.
Florida Crew Vice President Jessica Sinto
said the administration should not limit what
students do online. Just because you are in a
leadership position doesn't mean you should
have to censor what you do in your personal
Web site, she said.
The document not only warns students
about their safety,but also cautions them about
future employers looking at their profiles.
"Be conscious of how much time you
spend on Internet sites like Facebook and
blogs," the document states. "It is easy to
waste a lot of time that could be spent being
more productive."

He never smiles.
He rarely laughs, and he doesn't joke much.
Justin has a secret. He's seen a therapist about
his depression and the thousands he's lost. But it
hasn't helped.
He's a gambling addict, and he knows it. He
just doesn't think he can quit.
But Justin is not alone.
On a cold Monday in September of 1974,
Thomas Talley dropped to his knees and prayed
to die.
"I got on my knees, and I asked God to take
my life," Talley said.
He owed more money in gambling debts than
the cost of his entire house.
He, like Justin, was a gambling addict.
But he beat it.
Talley lived in mob-run Youngstown, Ohio,
and in one weekend he lost every bet losing
enough money to drink free for three years. .
"There was no win there. That's what brought
me down to desperation," he said. "That's what
brought me down to my knees."
It didn't end there, though. He decided to
change. He decided it was over.
"I was willing to face the consequences," he
said.
It took him 10 years to pay off the bets he made
that weekend. Talley hasn't placed a bet since and
has worked with gambling addicts for 24 years.
He is a certified gambling counselor based in
Florida and has conducted interventions all over
the country.
The same addiction that plagued Talley 32
years ago and still torments people like Justin
today is now rapidly spreading across college
campuses, experts say.
More than 50 percent of college males gamble
at least once a month, according to a report by the
Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University
of Pennsylvania. One in every four young men
gambles every week.
Of youths who gamble weekly, the report said,
more than half show signs of addiction.
Although UF offers no programs to aid gam-
bling addicts, there is help.

has a 24-hour helpline for people with gambling
problems. The Council's Web site also has a spe-
cial section geared specifically to college students.
It includes a self-assessment test for students who
think they might have a problem.
"We just thought it was important to provide
something that spoke directly to that popula-
tion," said Pat Fowler, executive director for the
Council.
The Council helps college gambling addicts
with everything from dealing with depression to
relieving credit card debt.
Talley said the way to monitor young people
with gambling problems is to find out where the
money is coming from and where it's going..
He has seen cases in which students steal thou-
sands from family and friends to fuel their need.
Gambling addiction often elicits a marked
change in a person, he said.
"It'll affect every part of you," Talley said.
"They lie about the money. They lie about where
they're at. Compulsive gamblers will lie."
Gambling addicts should not rely on them-
selves to fix the problem, he said. They have to
rely on something outside their own power.
The first step is recognizing the problem, he
said.
The next is getting help.
Walking away from the addiction is more than
just ending the betting.
"Recovery is changing everything about your-
self," Talley said.
It doesn't happen in a moment.
Getting better is a lifetime of hard work and a

Speaker: Kim a US threat


By PANAGIOTA PAPAKOS
Alligator Contributing Writer

North Korea likes to play. a nuclear
game, said the former president of a South
Korean university Thursday.
Byong Man Ahn, the former president
of Hankuk University of Foreign Studies in
South Korea, said the Bush administration
needs to lessen its confrontational stance
with the North Korean nuclear threat.
"The nuclear card is a very good card
for North Korea both politically and
economically," said Ahn, who received his
Ph.D. in political sciences from UF in 1974,
during his speech Thursday evening.
Kim Jong II, the dictator of North Korea,
relies specifically on the military for power,
and without it the country would be noth-
ing, Ahn said.
He described the current regime of Kim
as "Stalinist totalitarianism" and said the


country is not likely to change its policies
on nuclear weapons..
The North Korean government also re-
peatedly violates human
rights with its detain-
ment camps, Ahn said.
Dennis C. Jett, dean
of the International
Center, said Gainesville
residents should shift
,- their focus from Iraq
Jong II and Iran because North
Korea is the only coun-
try named in President Bush's "axis of evil"
that has nuclear power.
"North Korea is the most dosed society
in the world," Jett said.
About 60 people attended the speech
sponsored by the International Center, the
Asian Studies program and the political
science department.
Ahn.was not paid for his appearance.


Bike tour whizzes by UF

More than 500 bicyclistsfrom across the
country braved the rain and Gainesville
traffic Thursday in the 13th annual Bike
Florida tour.
The seven-day tour, which covers more
than 300 miles in North Florida, stopped
in Gainesville because
Around manyoftheBikeFlorida
GalnesvIlle staff members are UF
graduate students.
New Jersey resident Jim Kervick, 60,
said he enjoyed biking through UF's cam-
pus, which he said has great bike lanes.
"We could ride right up to the Swamp,"
Kervick said. "I've always wanted to see


the Swamp since I've seen it on TV."
The cyclists arrived in Gainesville on
Wednesday night and biked about 50
miles in Gainesville on Thursday.
Kervick said Gainesville is a bike-
friendly town, but the city could improve
by connecting bike lanes. Many lanes
abruptly end, leaving cyclists to compete
with the traffic, he said.
"You have what I call an 'oh-shit' mo-
ment when you're suddenly riding with a
bunch of trucks," Kervick said.
Alabama resident Deb Hughes, 46,
has logged more than 300 miles on her
21-speed roadbike during the first six days
of the tour.
She said her only fear when riding
around Gainesville was the traffic on
University Avenue.


UF, other state medical schools won't lose funding to new schools

the elderly and poor and econom-
ic development as the primary
reasons for approving the two
medical schools.
The only student on the Board,
UF. Student Body President Joe
Goldberg, voted in favor of the
medical schools.
The new medical schools will
not affect UF's medical school


funding, Goldberg said after the
vote.
The resolution was amended
before passing to ensure current
medical school programs would
not suffer financially due to the
new medical schools.
UF is currently shortchanged
with medical school funding, UF
Senior Vice President of Health
Affairs Doug Barrett said in an
interview Wednesday.
"If we're going to start fund-


ing new medical schools, the
Legislature needs to fund them
equally," he said.
FIU and UCF told the Board
that medical schools would
spawn a cluster of biotechnology
research programs around their
medical schools. These clusters
would bring in federally funded
research dollars and provide
economic development in the
Orlando and Miami areas, FIU
and UCF officials said.

To combat Florida's physician
shortage, the first thing the Board
should do is focus on residencies,


not establish medical schools right
away, said Board member Stanley
Marshall.
A vast majority of doctors
who complete their residencies
in Florida set up their practices
in the state, according, to a FIU
study.
FIU and UCF have raised mil-
lions of dollars for their respective
medical schools, each collecting
close to $20 million from.private
donors.

6, ALLIGATOR E FRIDAY, MARCH 24,2006


Editorial
The first week back from Spring Break is always the
worst.
Nobody relishes waking up for that second-period class
still hungover from the previous week's revelries.
Then there's the paper your professor assigned before the
break, which you forgot about until 15 minutes before class.
And you're still trying to figure out how to remove that
ill-advised tattoo of a unicorn that you had drawn on your
right buttock during one of your more festive inebriations.
Sigh.
But at least we have the antics of local Gainesville resi-
dents to entertain us. The first week back gave us all kinds
of riotous criminal mischief, which we've conveniently
wrapped up in another edition of our-very own...



Darts & Laurels

We begin by offering a way-to-get-started-in-the-culinary-
arts LAUREL to an unnamed, 15-year-old local high school
student who decided to slip a little something extra into his
home economics project.
That student,.apparently looking to kick it up a notch, spiced
up his chocolate bundt cake with a bud of marijuana.
Rhonda Means, the student's home economics teacher,
didn't get suspicious until another student specifically asked
for what appeared to be a "chocolate chip." Only there weren't
supposed to be any chocolate chips in the cake.
The jig was up.
But not before students, faculty and Means herself had
sampled the criminal confection.
"The faculty chewed, and they might have swallowed mari-
juana," said Alachua County Sheriff's Office spokesman Keith
Faulk of the incident.
For his wayward baking, the student could face up to 15
years in jail. But we don't feel like enough credit has been given
to this young man's creativity. He was probably just trying
to broaden his classmates' palates. And come on, how many
other students had the imagination to bake marijuana into their
bundt cakes?
On the other hand, we also feel compelled to assign the
student an if-you're-going-to-do-it-make-sure-you-do-it-right
DART for poor preparation.
If the marijuana looked like chocolate chips, it obviously
wasn't crushed up enough for baking purposes. Besides, Faulk
said there wasn't even enough marijuana in the cake to get stu-
dents high.
"When you put it in food, it takes a large amount, and
it would have to be very potent to feel any effects," he said.
"You'll feel the effects faster if you smoke it."
Thanks for clearing that up, officer.
Continuing on our recap of this week's illicit activities, we
give a don't-stalk-people-unless-you're-using-Facebook DART
to John Robert Orton for being so damn creepy.
Orton was arrested for stalking his female neighbor and -
we're not making this up repeatedly jumping out of bushes
to take pictures of her over a three-month period.
The first jump-out occurred in December while the woman,
whose name is withheld, was out walking her dog. Then in
January, Orton chased her up to her screened porch. Her non-
stalking neighbors told her on March 6 that Orton had been
looking into her windows.
But the last straw was this week's jump-out while the wom-
an was again walking her dog this time with her boyfriend.
That's the kind of creepiness that makes us think it's time to
start packing heat.
We just can't understand Orton at all. Why would anyone
go to all that trouble to take pictures of a fully clothed woman
when you can find so many fully unclothed women on the
internet?
The world may never know.

Police shouldn't punish potential crimes


H ere's a hypothetical situation: You've decided to
go out for a night on the town with your friends.
Being mature and law-abiding college students,
you designate a driver to stay sober so you all can get
home safely that night. Upon arriving at the bar, you
proceed to enjoy yourself and have some drinks. A police
officer then enters the bar and arrests everyone except the
driver for public intoxication.
This might sound preposterous, but it happened last
week in Irving, Texas. Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission
agents, alongside Irving police officers, arrested 30 bar pa-
trons throughout the Dallas suburb. Although the opera-
tion was ostensibly intended to reduce drunken driving,
in reality it had little to do with public safety and a lot to
do with governmental overreaching. All of the individuals
arrested during the sting were pulled from bars. In one
case, suspects were arrested from a hotel bar even though
they were registered guests of the hotel.
"We're trying to reduce [traffic fatalities] and save
lives," said TABC spokeswoman Carolyn Beck. But to any
sane American citizen, that is just a blatant and gross ap-
peal to emotion. Individuals who have rightfully paid for
their drinks, are of legal age and are still within the prem-
ises of a bar have every right to get as drunk as they want.
If they then attempt to drive a car, they have exceeded
their rights, but not until that moment.
The past week's events in Texas point toward a disturb-
ing nationwide trend of pre-emptive criminalization. It is
no longer enough to not commit crimes. Now you must
not think of crimes, speak of crimes or engage in behavior
that somehow could lead to a crime. Drinking away from
home is a telltale sign of the intent to drive drunk. The
act of purchasing fertilizer indicates you are a terrorist.
Suspicion reigns supreme, and "national security" and


i:, ,

"community safety" are the va-
pid rationalizations that continue
to pave the road to an Orwellian
future.
Our nation's law enforcement
officers exist in order "to protect
and serve." To specify, the indi-
viduals they are supposed to serve
are the general public. In incidents
such as what occurred in Texas,
the only ones being served are the


police themselves.
It is likely that most of the victims of the ridiculous
arrests in Irving this weekend will not obtain legal rep-
resentation. One can safely assume that these individuals
will simply pay whatever fines are brought against them
and just try to get through the legal system with as little
trouble as possible. This influx of unjust fines will then
continue funding the police who have already shown their
disregard for American rights.
Perhaps I am overreacting. Perhaps this farce of justice
was born of a legitimate concern for the public's safety.
But if this is the case, then while the motives are right,
the implementation cannot be more wrong. Hopefully it
is not too much to ask that our government discontinue
protecting us from "possible crimes." Otherwise, a future
in which cars, alcohol, sports and anything else that can
cause bodily injury or death are outlawed quickly be-
comes a very real possibility.
I don't know about the rest of the student body, but I
find the thought of being arrested for responsibly drinking
a few beers very troubling indeed.

Letters to the Editor
March of Dimes funds animal torturing
Thousands of caring individuals will walk
this Saturday with WalkAmerica to support
the March of Dimes. The March of Dimes
strives to "improve the health of babies by
preventing birth defects, premature birth and
infant mortality."
Like the participants in WalkAmerica, I
would love to see a decrease in or elimination
of birth defects, premature births and infant
mortality. .
Unfortunately, the March of Dimes wastes
millions of dollars each year on funding for
useless, redundant experiments that not only
torture animals, but also fail to help babies.
According to the Physicians Committee
for Responsible Medicine, the March of
Dimes funded one experiment in which the
eyes of newborn kittens were sewn shut so
scientists could study the effects of visual de-
privation. The kittens were killed at one year,
and no infant lives were saved or improved.
The March of Dimes has supported the
injection of cocaine, nicotine and alcohol into
animals to examine the effects and then killed
the animals. Everyone knows that these
drugs are harmful to unborn human babies,
so why waste money on experiments that
show how they affect nonhuman babies?
The committee, an organization of sym-
pathetic medical doctors, has more informa-
tion on all the cruel experiments the March
of Dimes hag funded and reasons why such
experiments do not help babies. The organi-
zation's Web site is http://www.pcrm.org/
resch/charities/mod.
I urge all readers to research how dona-
tions are used and to support only humane
charities, and www.humaneseal.org lists the
charities that help humans the most. I look
forward to the day when the March of Dimes
will have earned a place on that Web site.

Regardless of quote, Bare remains right
Jerry Williamson said in a letter to the
editor Tuesday: "Shame on [Andrew] Bare
for his elevation of the Jews as the princi-
pal victims of the Nazis while misquoting
Niemoeller to sell his line." This makes me
laugh and wonder how Williamson honestly
thinks he has the less biased view. I would
say that an estimated 6 million Jews killed
out of an estimated 12 million killed overall


is plenty of evidence that the p
targets were Jews.
Obviously, there are several
sions of Martin Niemoeller's quc
quote. But since numbers tend
truth than words, let alone poo
of those words, I'd say Bare's p
plenty of validity.

Some people really do want to have a war
I'm sick and tired of people saying, "No
one wants war." Often, the speaker slips in
an "of course" or an "ever" to make it sound
like a given.
The most recent person to echo this ideal-
istic and naive statement was Andrew Bare
in Wednesday's column. Someone who says
this whether or not they mean it has not
stopped to consider the possibility that war
means big bucks for a lot of people many
of whom are either in power or hold a large
amount of sway in the federal government.
A lot of people out there want a piece of
Bush's outrageous defense budget over
$480 billion last year, not counting an extra
$120 billion for Iraq alone. And when you
have the administration handing out con-
tracts left and right in Iraq, there are people
who support the invasion and the occupation
simply for the money.
As well, it would be silly to say that a
majority of the populace of a country never
wants war. I hate to harken back to 2001
because it drives me mad when people are
smeared with a "Sept. 10 mentality," but I
doubt very many people on Sept. 12 were
clamoring for peace. The same could be said
about Dec. 8,1941, or April 20,1775 the day
after the Battle of Lexington and Concord.
The fact is that a lot of the time, some
people want a war; and some of the time, a
lot of people want a war.

SG should break free from its own history
As seen in Wednesday's Alligator, in
1969, then-Student Body President Charles
Shepherd offered a bill to the Student Senate
in an attempt to open Student Government to
all students, but the Senate knocked it down


because it proposed sweeping changes to SG.
Is it not ironic that SG struggles with a similar
issue nearly forty years later?
In nearly every election, the parties call for
an "open" SG one free of legacy positions
and a change in the status quo but rarely
do the average students see any real change.
As a Unite Party supporter this Spring, I truly
believe that Jared Hernandez would have
made a monumental impact by eliminating
these promised positions in SG.
Despite this, I have a lot of faith in
President-elect John Boyles as he takes office
this May. I would like to challenge him to
break free of the status quo that has haunted
SG for so many years, as well as,extend this
challenge to the Senate leadership, who were
elected under the promise that it will be fair
and impartial to all students who come be-
fore it.
Unlike the 1969 Senate, this time around
I hope SG does not just blow its chances of
making a difference in the name of keeping
the status quo.

places" by Craig Cox that appeared in the
Alligator on Thursday.
It seems to me that Cox is making a very
confused argument in his call, to outlaw
smoking tobacco products in public spaces.
Cox is concerned with the effects of inhal-
ing secondhand smoke while sitting in his
car at a red light or while walking around
campus.
I think Cox should be more concerned
.with inhaling the noxious fumes from the
car exhausts all around him while he is
stopped at that red light than with inhaling
the cigarette smoke from the person next
to him.
Car exhaust can cause similar health
problems to those caused by secondhand
smoke, and it is much more pervasive in
public space.
Cox does not call for the outlawing of
automobiles.
If we follow Cox's argument to its
logical conclusion, we would be forced to
conclude that we must outlaw automobiles
from public space along with their cigarette
smoking drivers.

Sopranos star speaks


By BOBBY EAGLE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Author and actress Jamie-Lymn
Sigler spoke Thursday night about
her experience being trapped by an
eating disorder to a crowded Rion
Ballroom in the Reitz Union.
"My whole life revolved around
exercise, burning calories, cutting
calories and creating menus for my-
self," Sigler said.
Sigler, 24, who is best known for
her role as Meadow on the HBO
show "The Sopranos," said she
developed an eating disorder while
shooting the show's first season. She
regained control of her eating habits
during the show's second season,
but Sigler said fans' reactions were
not as positive as she expected.
As time progressed, Sigler said
she began to feel more and more
hopeless about her disorder.
"I remember just thinking I just
want to kill myself because there is
no way out," she said.
Sigler went on to become a


spokeswoman for the National
Eating Disorders Association and
now speaks across the country.
The most important step for
people suffering from an eating
disorder is to reach out for help,
Sigler said.
"You are not alone, but unless
you reach out, you will never know
that," she said. "I couldn't have
done it alone."
The event, which cost about
$17,000, was part of Women's
History Month 2006 and was co-
sponsored by Accent Student
Government's speakers bureau
- Jewish Awareness Month and
Women's History Month, said
Nicole Trueblood, spokeswoman
for Accent.
UF freshman Diana Saiz said
Sigler's speech was an opportunity
for people struggling with eating
disorders to relate to someone who
overcame the same problem.
"She was just so real," Saiz said.
"Anyone who would have the same
problems as her could relate to her."

CLO, from page 1


UF's November 2005 inspection con-
cluded that the CLO was unlivable and cit-
ed problems with the kitchen and plumb-
ing. It also cited fire-safety violations.
UF came to CLO residents during the
first week of classes and mandated they
move out by March' 17 at 4 p.m. The resi-


dents have yet to leave.
Krueger said he was "outraged" when
UF did not contact him before last Friday
about its petition to an Alachua court to
clarify who held the rights to the CLO,
located at 117 NW 15th St.
The court found that UF's highest gov-
erning body, the Board of Trustees, has
ultimate authority over the building.
Krueger has filed motions asking the

court to reconsider its decision, saying the
CLO did not receive a fair shake.


When they first notified the CLO of the
building's problems, UF officials said they
would reconsider their decision if the CLO
improved building conditions from the
November inspection.
But the CLO was cited for 21 electrical
violations, 14 extension cord violations
and 10 blocked second-exit violations in a
January inspection.
The CLO has said it believes all the
things listed are correctable.

Freshman leads

Gators into SECs
By CHRIS WHITE
Alligator Writer

With a Southeastern Conference
Tournament or two already behind most of
them, the UF gymnasts know what to expect
Saturday: the constant pop of the synthetic
drum loops from floor routine montages, the
national-television cameras, more than 10,000
mostly hostile fans and the urge to watch some
of the best gymnasts in the world, even just out
of the comer of their eyes.
But a freshman in uncharted territory may
find herself carrying most of the weight.
Freshman Corey Hartung, who joined
the Gators from Hill's Gymnastics Club in
Gaithersburg, Md., may have never seen a col-
legiate postseason, but she's spent more than
10 years training with a regimen almost twice
as time-consuming.
She's competed in international tourna-
ments and the Junior Olympics National
Championships as a member of the U.S. Senior
National Team, even placing in most of her
events. And her experience shows when she's
on the floor for the Gators.
Since the opening night of the Gators' sea-
son against Illinois, Hartung has gone from
the me-first world of cub gymnastics to the


team-oriented camaraderie of collegiate athlet-
ics flawlessly, which is a valuable quality in the
toughest conference in the NCAA, UF coach
Rhonda Faehn said.
"She could have been a prima donna eas-
ily with her gymnastics. It's exceptional," she
said. "But that's why I love her so much."
On opening night against the Illini, Hartung
captured a first-place all-around win, making
her the first UF freshman to win an all-around
in the season opener since Melissa Miller did it
in 1986, the year Hartung was born.
"It was a total shock," Hartung said. "I
wasn't expecting it. Its something like the first
time it's happened in 20 years. It's just great."
Hartung's 38.975 all-around score helped
propel the Gators to No. 1 in the national rank-
ings and gave the team its third-highest open-
ing score in school history
After a strictly judged win in Oregon that
dropped the team to No. 8, the next two weeks
gave the Gators an opportunity to regain their
ranking and get a preview of the challenging
SEC Tournament.
They first traveled to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to
face then-No. 4 Alabama backed by a sold-out
Coleman Coliseum crowd of 15,162.
Hartung won another all-around com-
petition, but it wasn't enough to carry the
team, as the Gators fell 195.775-194.625.
Faehn said she saw her team make obvious
mistakes, but she said the crowd gave Alabama

Battle of the bigs: Gators take on Georgetown giants


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

MINNEAPOLIS When a
team starts players at 6-foot-11 and
6-foot-8 and backs them up with
reserves who stand 6-foot-9 and
6-foot-8, it isn't often that an oppo-
nent can match up physically.
UF has found that team.
Georgetown starts three play-
ers 6-foot-9 and taller, including
7-foot-2 Roy Hibbert, who scored
20 points and grabbed 14 rebounds
against Ohio State on Sunday.
While the 283-pound center uses
brute force to muscle his way to
the basket, his UF counterpart
Joakim Noah relies more on fi-
nesse and quickness. That should
amount to an interesting matchup
when the seventh-seeded Hoyas
and third-seeded Gators square off


tonight at 9:40 in the Minneapolis
Regional Semifinals.
"As much as they are very
similar they're sophomores and
both have improved tremendously
- they're different," Georgetown
coach John Thompson I said.
"Noah is up and down; he moves.
But both kids have a work ethic,
both kids have a desire to be good
and both kids are extremely un-
selfish."
Largely unknown while pri-
marily riding the bench during
UF's brief tournament stint last
season, Noah has gained national
attention as this season progressed.
His rise culminated at UF's press
conference Thursday, as the largest
flock of reporters present amassed
at his locker.
But it's not only the media
that are impressed with the lanky
sophomore's game.


"With the exception of this
week, when I'm preparing for him,
he's fun to watch," Thompson II
said. "His energy, his enthusiasm
... how he handles himself and
how he works is tremendous.

"So the bottom line is
we're going to run all night.
If he's not in good enough
shape, I feel bad for him."
Al Horford
UF Power Forward

"I've seen him play a lot over
the years, and I am not surprised
where he is in his development.
His energy is contagious. His en-
thusiasm is contagious."
Staring Noah in the face will
be Hibbert, who has flourished as
much as any big man in the coun-
try this year.


He's shooting 59 percent from
the floor- and leads Georgetown in
both blocks and rebounding while
ranking second in scoring.
"John has done a great job over
the course of the season with him,
when you look at his growth and
development as a player," UF
coach Billy Donovan said. "He's a
problem, because he can rebound,
and he's a very good, [an] under-
rated passer. He can score. He
does a lot of different things for
his team."
A pair of 6-foot-9 forwards,
Jeff Green and Brandon Bowman,
flank Hibbert to give Georgetown
an intimidating front line. Still,
Hibbert said the Hoyas haven't
faced a quartet of big men like
Noah, Al Horford, Chris Richard
and Adrian Moss this season.
"They run. They push the ball
in transition," said Hibbert, who


excels in Georgetown's deliberate,
half-court Princeton offense.
"So we're going to have to make
sure we pick up a man in transition
so we can make some stops."
Noah himself-wouldn't make a
big deal out of the matchup.
"He's in our way, so he's a
problem," Noah said.
But another UF big man said it
will be Hibbert adjusting to how.
the Gators play, not the other way
around.
"If we have to adjust and play
that half-court style, I think we can
do that, but I'd prefer to play our
style," Horford said. "That's the
style we play, and he's going to
have to adjust to that, and they're
going to have to adjust to that.
"So the bottom line is we're
going to run all night. If he's not
in good enough shape, I feel bad
for him."

UF SOFTBALL

Young Gators stand out as team begins SEC play


By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Writer

The honeymoon is over for the
UF softball team.
After starting out the season
with several grueling tourna-
ments against ranked teams such
as defending national champion
Michigan and No. 25 DePaul, the
Gatorlhave had some recuperating
time recently. Not anymore.
Out of their 30 remaining sched-
uled games, only six are against
non-Southeastern Conference op-
ponents. And even those six games
are against quality teams, includ-
ing Central Florida, which cut the
Gators' postseason run short last
year in the NCAA regionals.
For now, however, UF just needs
to worry about this weekend's se-
ries with Arkansas. Both the Gators
and Razorbacks act as good mea-


during sticks for each other both
recently came off of series wins
against Mississippi.
UF's recent success can be at-
tributed to its ability to put teams
away early.
In the last three games, the
Gators plated 17 runs in the last
three innings.
"We're really looking to establish
the same tempo, score early and to
get out of the gates early," UF coach
Tim Walton said. "When we do
that, our swings loosen up a little
bit and we get more confidence."
Some of the major components
in setting UF's aggressive style have
been the younger players.
Stacey Nelson and Kim
Waleszonia, as well as third base-
man Brooke Johnson and pitcher
Lindsay Littlejohn, have all re-
ceived significant playing time this
season.


"We're really looking to
establish the same tempo,
score early and to get out
of the gates early. When
we do that, our swings
loosen up a little bit and
we get more confidence."
Coach Tim Walton
UF softball

In Wednesday's win against
Jacksonville, Waleszonia had three
RBI.
Apparently, the term "freshmen"
may not be accurate anymore.
"I think we're way past them
being freshmen," Walton said. "I
don't really look at Kim Waleszonia
as a freshman, I don't look at
Lindsay Littlejohn, Stacey Nelson


and Brooke Johnson as freshmen
anymore.
"They've got as many reps and
as many at-bats as some people get
in their career."
Senior Stacie Pestrak has also
been impressed with the play of all
four contributing freshmen.
"They're fighters; they're not
quitters," Pestrak said. "They don't
let one bad at-bat or one bad inning
in the field get to them. They work
hard and they've got a tremendous
amount of confidence, and we've
got a tremendous amount of confi-
dence in them."

SENIOR WINS DECATHLON: UF
senior Kayne DaKoski recorded
the second-best score in school
history en route to winning the de-
cathlon at the Florida State Relays in
Tallahassee on Thursday.
DaKoski scored 7,211 points to


win the event, 1,014 points ahead of
the second-place finisher, UF sopho-
more Kurt Lee.
On the women's side, senior Jyn
Wynn won the hammer throw at
the Walt Disney World Invitational
on Thursday. Wynn recorded an
NCAA Regional mark of 63.72m, the
fourth-highest throw in UF history.

VOLLEYBALL BACK IN ACTION: The
UF volleyball team will open its
spring slate of games against Miami
and Barry at the Lemerand Center
on Saturday.
The Gators open against Barry
at 10:15 a.m., then play Miami at 11:
30 a.m. In the afternoon, UF plays
Barry at 2:15 and Miami at 3:30.
The Gators return five starters
from a 33-3 Elite Eight squad from
2005, including two All-Americans,
setter Angle McGinnis and middle
blocker Kisya Killingsworth.


Lochte breaks Phelps' American record at NCAAs


* GATORS RANKED FOURTH AT
MEN'S NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP MEET.

By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Writer

With Michael Phelps in the audience, se-
nior Ryan Lochte proved that at least for one
night he was the better Olympian.
Thursday night at the NCAA
Championships in Atlanta, Lochte broke the
American record in the 200-yard individual
medley. He swam the race in 1 minute, 40.55
seconds. Phelps had set the old American re-


cord last month at the World Cup.
"It felt good," Lochte said about breaking
the record: "We have a special bond between
us. He was upset that I broke his record, but I
think he is happy for me."
By pure coincidence, Phelps presented
Lochte the 200 IM trophy. At the 2004
Olympics, Lochte won the silver medal in the
event while Phelps took the gold.
Lochte's time in the 200 IM also broke
the NCAA record that he set last year. With
Thursday's win, Lochte now has four indi-,
vidual NCAA titles with two days left in the
2006 meet.
Competing against Lochte, freshman


Bradley Ally took sixth in the 200 IM with
a time of 1:45.16. This came only two days-
after he arrived in Atlanta
from Melbourne, Australia,
after he competed in the
Commonwealth Games.
S. Senior Brian Hartley
S won the consolation final in
,. the500 freestyle. His time of
S .'- 4:18.97 was a personal best
SLoce' for one of UF's leaders.
Lochte
Breaking records was a.
trend for Lochte, as he broke the NCAA and
American 100 backstroke record with a lead-
off split time of 44.60 in the 400 medley relay.


However, his start did not hold out, as UF fell
to Arizona.
Despite Lochte's record-breaking night, UF
will enter today's competition in fourth place
with 97 points. Southeastern Conference rival
Auburn holds first place with 178.5 points.
"It's a big motivation," Lochte said. "It
helped our time out a lot, and hopefully it will
drive us through the rest of the meet."
Today, Lochte and the rest of the Gators
will compete in the 200 medley relay, 400 IM,
100 butterfly, 200 free, 100 breaststroke, 100
backstroke, 800 free relay and the 3-meter div-
ing event. Preliminaries begin at noon with the
finals set to begin at 7 p.m.

Cash preps to face former team


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

Typically, earning conference honors
after a freshman season is a good sign
for an athlete to stay put.
Not for David Cash.
Despite being named to the 2004
Southeastern Conference All-Freshman >
team, the UF junior third baseman de-
cided to part ways with South Carolina
after just his first-season. Cash went
on to spend a year at Chipola Junior
College in 1Iarianna before arriving in
Gainesville during the fall.
Cash will face his old team for the
first time tonight, as the No. 9 Gators
(17-8, 2-1 SEC) take on No. 7 South
Carolina (19-3,2-1 SEC) in Columbia.
"I'm definitely excited," Cash said.
"When you get a chance to play against
a team you were with in the past, its a
great opportunity to show what you
can do against them. I'm very familiar
with their roster, and I think it's going
to be fun."
Cash, who made 11 starts for the
Gamecocks last season, cited a lack of
playing time as the main reason for his
departure. With the encouragement of
his father, Dave, a former major-leaguer
and currently a first base coach with the
Baltimore Orioles, Cash decided to seek
out playing time elsewhere.
If Cash were still searching for play-
ing time after his year in the junior
college ranks, he should be more than
pleased with his progress so far at UF.
With formerly entrenched starter
Brandon McArthur struggling to find
a home between the second and third
base positions, Cash has crept in and es-
tablished himself as a consistent starter
at the hot comer.
"I'm not surprised at all [to be in
the starting lineup]," Cash said. "When
you're good, you're good. It's going to
show when you get into the lineup and
out onto the field and work hard. I've
been working hard and allowing my
natural ability to take over."
Beyond any ,personal motivation
for Cash, this weekend's series carries
significance for the team as a whole,'
marking the first time the Gators take
the road in conference play and only
the second away series of the season.
South Carolina, which has worked

into the top 10, already boasts a defeat
of then-No. 1 Clemson on March 4.
"It's a huge road trip," UF catcher-
Brian Jeroloman said. "South Carolina
is a great overall team with some even
greater players."
Jeroloman praised the Gamecocks'
roster, tagging outfielder Michael
Campbell as a "magnificent" player
returning from last year's squad, which
missed its fourth consecutive Super
Regional berth, losing to Georgia Tech.
Jeroloman added that even if the
Gators won the three-game series, the
team might not be satisfied.


"A successful weekend would be a
sweep," he said. "We won't be happy
unless we win three games, whether we
win by 10 or 20 or one"
Cash agreed, saying the Gators
would enter the game aggressive and
not intimidated.
"I haven't got a chance to see [South
Carolina] in person, and like anyone
else, I just want to strap up and get out
there," he said. "But I'm not going to go
ahead and say that because they beat
Clemson that they're something special.
We want to go out and take them on just
like any other SEC team."


UF hopes to


extend near-


perfect record

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Writer

It has been attempted 128 times and accom-
plished only once barely.
At 127-1 all-time at home against Southeastern
Conference opponents, the No. 6 UF women's ten-
nis team has arguably one of the most remarkable
records in all of college tennis.
Today, UF will try to extend its feat. The Gators'
nearly perfect Southeastern Conference record will
again be put to the test when they host Arkansas at
the Ring Tennis Complex today at 5 p.m.
"I don't think we're the sixth-ranlTed
team in the country. I think when we
play well, we're better than that."
Roland Thornqvist
UF women's tennis coach

Players have come and gone, as have coaches, but
the Ring Tennis Complex and the UF program have
remained a constant fear for SEC opponents.
The Gators' (10-1, 4-0 SEC) only loss came in 2002,
when they fell to Georgia 4-3. The record and UF's
recent play has confidence soaring.
"I don't think we're the sixth-ranked team in the
country," UF coach Roland Thornqvist said. "I think
when we play well, we're better than that."
Senior Alexis Gordon, who was ranked No. 1
nationally in 2003 before taking last season off for
personal reasons, received a national ranking last
week for the first time this season at No. 37. And
she's climbing fast.
Gordon's only loss of the season came in the
Gators' last match against Georgia, in which she lost
a super-tiebreaker (12-10) that was played instead of
a third set. Thornqvist said if the match had gone to
three sets, there is no doubt in his mind she would
have won.
"I think she's getting better. I think she's having
fun, and she's doing a great job leading this team, no
question about it," he said.
Thornqvist said the doubles teams have reached
a new plateau this season. UF swept Georgia in dou-
bles in its last match. The Bulldogs are one of the best
doubles teams in the country, Thomqvist said.
UF sophomore Whitney Benik has contributed
heavily this year, solidifying a solid top of the lineup,
Thomqvist said.
"Depth has always been our strength," Thomqvist
said. "And now we're pretty set at the one, two and
three singles positions."
The Gators will host Louisiana State on Sunday
at 1 p.m.

UF finds fair winds


* THE SAILING TEAM WON
THE CHARLESTON REGATTA.

By JENNIFER KLEE
Alligator Contributing Writer

While most UF students spent
Spring Break relaxing or partying,
members of the UF sailing cub were
busy blowing past their competition
at the Charleston Spring Open Regatta
in Charleston, S.C.
Four Gators sailors competed in
the event, battling a strong current
and 13 other teams from across the
Southeast. With a first-place finish,
the sailors ensured a berth in their
district championship, which begins
April 8 on the same river.
The fact that sailing is a low-
funded club sport at UF and its
members must consistently com-
pete against well-funded varsity
teams makes the victory even more
fulfilling for the team.
"We compete against a lot of rich,
amazing schools with alumni who
pour thousands of dollars into their
sailing programs," UF sailing dub
president Laura Levy said.
Levy was one of the four sailors,
along with Courtney Whitehurst,
Chris Fontana and Alex Weinert, who
guided UF to the win. They defeated
such powerhouses as South Florida-
St. Petersburg, Charleston, North
Carolina State and The Citadel.
"It was rewarding to beat the re-
ally strong varsity programs," said
Whitehurst, a senior who has sailed


for four years at UE "They've got
coaches and funding, and we have
nowhere near their resources."
While USF-St. Petersburg has the
luxury of employing an Olympic
gold medallist like women's coach
Allison Jolly to coach their sailing
teams, UF's club is largely self-
coached.
Ornel Cotera, 24, acts as a coach
at two of the team's four weekly
practices, which are held at Lake
Wauburg. Cotera, a former UF sail-
or, volunteers his time to teach the
team techniques.
Club "Ornel is incred-
Sports ibly knowledgeable,
but he is different
from a real coach in
that he can't attend all of our regat-
tas and be on the shore helping our
sailors," Levy said.
UF sailors usually compete in
at least one regatta per weekend.
Using money out of their own pock-
ets to pay for gas and entry fees,
they often travel as far as Rhode
Island to compete.
With a win at the district com-
petition in April, the sailors could
qualify for nationals for the first
time in five years. Cotera expressed
optimism for the future of UF sail-
ing.
"We have four or five major
[sailing] prospects coming in to add
depth to the team next year," he
said. "The fact that we have such a
young squad that is doing so well,
the future looks really bright for the
dub."


UF gymnast looks to provide spark


GYM, from page 17


an added boost.
"You could say it's the seventh woman,"
Faehn said."We would love to see the O'Dome
as full as what we encountered in Alabama."
Faehn got her wish the next week, as the
second-largest crowd in school history packed
into the O'Connell Center to see the Gators
host defending national champion Georgia.
While the crowd boosted UF to the highest
score any college gymnastics team had earned
to that point of the season, it was outdone by a
charged Bulldogs team that outperformed the
Gators 197.025-196.60.
While the Gators may have scored a season
high that night, they performed one of their
sloppier meets of the season. Four of UF's six
performers cost the Gators out-of-bounds de-
ductions, but Faehn chalked it up to the team's
new routines.
And there the Gators sat. The season had
opened easily enough and they performed
well, but they still fell to two of the teams they
would surely face again in the postseason.
Faehn compared the team's only two losses
to falling during a competition. Every time
someone falls, she said, the whole team's mo-
mentum has to start from scratch.
But there was motivation to be found in the
defeats. Hartung only competed in three events
against Georgia but scored season highs on
each, with a 9.9 on the floor routine, uneven
bars and vault.
Within two weeks, Hartung's all-around
scores and an SEC Gymnast of the Week honor


helped bring the Gators back to the top of the
national rankings, keeping them in the top three
for the rest of the season and making Hartung
only the second UF gymnast to win six or more
all-around competitions in her debut season.
Three all-around wins later, Hartung and the
No. 3 Gators wrapped up their regular season
at home against perennial gymnastics power-
house Utah in a meet that likely would charge
one team's momentum and deflate the other's.
Utah's perfect road record looked intimidat-
ing, but the Gators pulled out
all the stops, earning their
highest score of the season in
a 197.325-196.675 win.
"I feel, right now, that
we're starting to feel that
area where we're going to be
peaking soon," Faehn said
Fan before the last meet. "The
team is ready physically, and
it's just a matter of keeping them fresh."
With every competitor healthy and no signs
of wear, UF junior Samantha Lutz compared
the postseason.to the light at the end of the
tunnel, a motivating factor for the team. And
Hartung, she said, is one of the reasons it looks
so bright.
"It's evident that she loves gymnastics,
and it shows not only when she's performing
but [also] when she's so positive in the gym,
and she's always so excited to compete and
perform," Lutz said. "It really helps the team
to have that positive spark around us all the
time."
Now, in the SEC Tournament, that spark
may be even more valuable than experience.

Green


Guard hits new heights under pressure


By DAN TREAT \
,Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

Flashback a couple of weeks to a hotel room
in Nashville, Tenn. It's late, and Corey Brewer
is sounc asleep, but his roommate can only toss
and turn and shiver.
Widt a Southeastern Conference semifinal
game"against Louisiana State just hours away,
Green remained in bed, fighting off an ailment
thathad him vomiting and unable to rest.
After a sleepless night and a pre-game IV,
Green went out and scored 18 points and had
si, steals as the Gators routed the Tigers 81-65.
; "His mother reminded him that I'm good
friends with Michael Jordan," said Green's
father, Sidney. "And Michael Jordan went out
and he had the flu and he played without even
thinking [about it] to help his team win the
championship."'
But by that point, Green's performance
wasn't a surprise.
It has become his trademark. When the pres-
sure is cranked up, and the spotlights are -ti .-
ing bright, Green is at his best.
S"I don't know what it is," Cr-r,-r said. "It's
just doing whatever it takes to get the win.
That's what we try a nd talk about just do
what you havejo do for the team to win."
But afterhis two nights in Madison Square
GOrden where he scorched Syracuse and Wake
F irt-;t for 23 points a piece en route to winning
the Co.aches vs. Cancer Classic MVP trophy,
Grqen went from an unknown to a household
nanye in the blink of an eye.
Itwas a special victory for the Green family,
one that left Sidney in tears with an arm draped
over UF assistant coach Anthony Grant's shoul-
der after Taurean dedicated the performance
to his grandmother, who passed away in early
2005.
"He's tough kid, a tough dude" senior
forward Adrian Moss said. "He likes to 4lav


good athlete and he just plays hard."
Green was back at it against Kentucky in
Gainesville on Feb. 4, dropping 29 points in a
:.ahonariJU tele'. L-cd primetime contest.
Then .caime the SEC Tournament, where
Green hit alt five of his three-pointers in the
opener against Arkansas, o'. er, i:me illness to
take down LSU and eventually earned teurna-
ment MVP. It was just another trophy he handed
over to his parents, who keep all the hardware
he has accumulated over the years displayed
proudly at their home and offices.
"This is icing on the cake," said Sidney, who
briefly played with UF coach Billy Donovan on
the New York Knicks. "There's no comparison
because you've got your kid out there.
"The way Coach Donovan rec ruited him. the
only thing we've asked of Billy is'to continue to
nurture and teach him to be,::rnme the best pos-
sible basketball plyefhe can possibly be. Coach
Donovan andhiAs coaching staff are doing a re-
-narkabl' ,.'b "
It's a good thing for Green that he shares
"a name with his father. Otherwise, the coach
might never have recognized the son of his
former teammate.
Unlike his father, who stands a striking 6-
foot-9 and played power forward at Nevadya
Las Vegas and the NBA, Green tops out atust
six-feet even.
"I look at my dad and ask myself where did
all my height go?" Taurean said. "I sil have a
feeling I haven't hit my growth spurt."
And at least one of his teammates disputed
Green's listed height.
"He's 5-foot-11, but he tries4o say he's 6-foot-
1," fellow sophomore Al Hdrford joked. "That's
why he lets his hair grovfout."
Horford said that when the roommates go
out, people question Green if he's really a bas-
ketball player due to his height.
The greater shock may be that there is some-
one in Gainesville these days that wouldn't rec-
o-nize Gren but there's no doubting that he

Though his scoring has declined since,earning MVP honors at the Coache%~vs. Cancer Classic to begin the season, Grel
step up in big games. He recovered froin an illness to score 18 points against Luisiana State in the SEC Tournament.


'Green, whose father used to coach at Florda
Atlantic and spent this season as an assistant
under Mike Davis at Indiana, bounced between
four different high schools in four years.
"A lot of people look at it like I got into
trouble, so that's why I had to transfer, but It
wasn't even like that," Green said.' It a I u t a
situation me and my family were in that forced
me to transfer schools for four years in a row,
but it was a fun experience."
It was an experience that allowed Green to1
mesh with different teammates with different
backgrounds, something that has helped him'
when he hit the UP campus in the summer of I
2004, when he immediately found himself bat-
tling Anthony Roberson in practice.
"I wouldn't say Anthony whipped him, but,
he taught him," Moss said. "You're defend'ne


ably no better scorer that's come through his
program than Peep. When you're defending
him every day, you have no choice but to getl
better."
Green said that backing up Roberson at that
point helped him on the offensive end of the
court as well.
"Last year was a great learning experience
for me playing behind Anthony," Green said. "I
learned a lot last year just knowing how to run
the team and what you have to do at the point
guard spot."
But the knock on Roberson was that he
couldn't distribute the ball like a real point
guard. Green, on the other hand, has 4.9 assists
to accompany his 13.4 points a game, only a
year after averaging 2.2 and 3.9, respectively.

played for a national title.
"He's so quick and fast, he can get out and
%pressure the ball on defense, and he gets the ball
and just goes," Donovan said, I'which makes
everyone play at a different speed."
Ever since Jordan touched his head while he
lay inrfhis crib, basketball has been at the fore-
front ofiGreen's life, and Sitc. has been the
teacher every step of the way.
"He Icrned a lot of i..ha no:. to do. That's
the best teaching tool that I was able to give
him," Sidney said. "I '.as a power forward

"The one thing I've asled of him is to respect
the game both on and off the basketball court,
and that's c\actly i h.ai he's doing. I couldn't

MINNEAPOLIS Old-school Georgetown bas-
ketball, as taught by former coach John Thompson II,
was all about raw power and inside dominance. That's
simple with players like Patrick Ewing and Dikembe
Mutombo fearlessly patrolling the lane.
But Georgetown's current coach, John Thompson II,
brought a different philosophy about the game with him
when he was hired from Princeton two seasons ago, one
based on ball movement and off-the-ball screens.
While tonight's Sweet 16 matchup between UF and
Georgetown has been publicized as a contrast of styles,
Thompson bristled at the notion that his team prefers to
play a tempered style.
"Do We?" Thompson responded when a reporter
asked about playing a deliberate style. "I think we have
the flexibility and versatility to play any style. I think
we've shown that all year, so if the game is going up
and down, we can go up atnddown.'"- ..- .,


But there is no denying that the Hoyas have a style of
play that i predicated on ball movement and controlled
tempo.
Pete Carril, Princeton's legendary former coach who
won 13 Try League titles, honed his "Princeton Offense"
during his 29-year tenure at the school, during which
Thompson El played and coached under him.
Thee are direct similarities between Princeton's
back-cutting, ball-controlling attack and that of
Georgetown, but Thompson insisted that he brings av
little bit of everything to the table. 0
"People always go through and compare and con-
trast and see what you took from this personand what?'
-u'' took from that person; it's ridiculous;? Thompzon
said. "Hopefully, when you see m,, When you -ee our
tdam's play, you'll see both those guys."
/ The Hoyas have a\etiaged just 66.4 points per game
compared to the Gator- 7" 3, but they also have the
ability to put large nun b!ter on the scoreboard
- 'Ih their midseason upset of Duke, Gc-,rgeto'wn
scored 87 in a game that proved to its players that their
coach's system can work against top-level ctomnpetitior.
"We knew we could compete with an bod\ if we
played hard and ran our offense; that's the most impor-
tant part," sophomore center Roy Hibbert said. We're
making a lot of back-door cuts, and they had to stop our
backcourt because they were hitting three-pointeri and
jump shots."
But the Gators have faced similar types of debberate
offenses already this season.
Donovan and his players have compared
Georgetown's offense to Vanderbilt's, only with differ-
ent personnel. The Commodores defeated the Ho, a
68-61 on Georgetown's home court in December, while
UF took down the Commodores on two separate occa-
sions this season.
Both Donovan and a couple of UF's players
brought up the grind-it-out Southeastern Conference
Tournament title game against South Carolina as an
example of how the Gators are able to deal it ith teams
that push every possession deep into the shot clock.
The Gators would prefer to play the game at their
pace, but if the tempo dictates it, they'll play at what-


ever speed they need to.
"It doesn't matter; it's all about winning the basket-
ball game Joakim Noah said. "I'm not worried about
them holding the ball. It doesn't matter if we win 27-26,
as long as we get the win."


From the Swamp to snow, Gators welcomed in Minnesota with sea of white


M INNEAPOLIS Chris Richard has played
in tow ns- that most Americans couldn't spell,
let alh-on point to .li a map Tuscaloosa,
Knoxville, Baton Rouge to n.iame a few.
But when UF junior :or.-. ai' stepped off the plane
Wednesday and into a sea of -,' hte Richard felt lost and
confused. ,
"I never in my life thought I'd end upin the state of
Minnesota," Richard said. "It never crossed my mind,
coming to Minnesota." "
Then he chuckled, and blurted out the proper name of
the Land of 10,000 Lakes one more time.
"Minnesota," said an amused Richard.
"Nobody knows anybody here. We're in a foreign
place."
Well Chris, the feeling's mutual. Minnesota never ex-
pected to see you either.
At the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in snowy
dowl town Minneapolis, tie surprising Gators are this


year's freak show. So many reporters want a piece of
them, and everybody can't help but stare at the center of
the entire bonanza, 6-foot-ll big man Joakim Noah.
By now, Noah's odyssey from seldom-used reserve to
the master of the basketball universe has been plastered
in every sports, magazine, on every television set and in
every corer of cyberspace.
Each day the Gators remain alive is another day for
the national media to drool over the NCAA's new poster
'boy.
On Thursday, a fresh batch of reporters set out to
pick Noah's brain, the man who's suddenly made Adam
Morrison and J.J. Redick seem like stars of a "Where Are
They-Now?" special on the E! network.
"He's really bright and sharp, like a Tim Duncan or
a David Robinson," said Michael .Wilbon, co-host of
ESPN's Pardon the Interruption. "If a team like Chicago
drafts him with the top pick, they could move Tyson
Chandler back to the power forward spotnd throw


Noah at center."
joakim Noah saving the Bulls franchise? The son of
a French tennis legend mentioned in the same bc.ith as
future Hall- .f-Fimers R;.b>,in:.n and Duncan7
"Frenchie, I called him Frin,:i,: said former Hoyas
coach Tohn Thompson II, who
Bv remrember- Noah4from his days
at Georgetown's basketball camp.
S "That's my boy. I've known
'' -' Frenchie since he was knee high."
"That son of a bitch, when
Andrew I saw him play on television, I
Abramson said 'that's little Frenchie; I'll be
Drew's Control damned.' I was so proud of him."
aabramson@alligator.org
.org Perhaps the snow has given
everyone the ultimate brain
freeze, or maybe it's the milk at the press buffet (only
in Minnesota), but Frenchie and the Gators have become
the talk qf a frigid city 1,464 miles from Gainesville.


In the words of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid:
Who arc these guys?
W\,hil the Big East duo of Villanova and Georgetown
as well ai its divorced partner Boston College expected
to receive all the buzz, UF is managing to hold its own in
a city here few people have any interest in the Gators,
and the Southeastern Conference invokes fear of pick-up
trucks and chewing tobacco..
"It's crazy," said freshman guard Walter Hodge, who
was stunned to receive an interview request. "Nobody
used to talk about us, but now we're all over the place."
Of course the honeymoon could end tonight, mak-
ing the Gators a mere footnote to the Big East. But if the
Gators can keep their monthlong winning streak alive,
this team will continue to become the darlings of a for-
eign, frozen land.
And if that's the case, Chris Richard will think twice
before mocking Minnesota.

FlIeoa: Al Horford, So. 6'8" 235 pounds, 11.4 ppg, 7.3 rpg
Horford had a double-double against South Alabama and improved stats against UW-Milwaukee despite getting into foul trouble. This week
he'd better be careful helping on Hibbert, or Horford could log even more minutes on the.bench.
Georgetown: Jeff Green,'so. 6'9" 235 pounds, 11.8 ppg, 6.6 rpg
Green has a game that is more similarto Noah's than Horford's. He primarily runs the Hoyas' Princeton offense from the top of the key and
leads the team in both scoring and assists and is second in rebounding.



Florida: Corey Brewer, So. 6'8" 185 pounds, 12.7 ppg, 4.8 rpg
Brewer scored 23 points, hitting five threes in the Gators second-round win. While he won't shoot that well every game, he should be able to cut to
the basket and create in transition. But he'll have to play more disciplined defense against a patient Georgetown offense.
Georgetown: Brandon Bowman, Sr. 6'9" 223 pounds, 11.0 ppg, 5.0 rpg
Much like Brewer, Bowman has the ability to score from any spot on the floor, and much of the Hoyas' offense runs through him. He only shoots 30
percent from three-point range but hits 45.6 percent of his shots overall and is one point shy of passing Allen Iverson for 12th on
Georgetown's all-time scoring list.

Florida: Lee Humphrey, Jr. 6'2" 192 pounds, 10.8 ppg, .467 3PT%
When he's on, he's been great from behind the arc. As the Gators' best perimeter defender, he will be needed
to guard the Hoyas' complex Princeton-style offense.
Georgetown: Ashanti Cook, Sr. 6'2" 185 pounds, 10.lppg, .439 3PT%
Cook has cranked his game up a notch in the Tournament, where he's averaging 15.5 points, 4 boards and
3.5 assists.


Florida: Taurean Green, So. 6'0" 177 pounds, 13.4 ppg, 4.9 apg
Green's point production has steadily slowed during the past month, but he has a knack for turning it on in big
games [See: Coaches vs. Cancer Classic and SEC Tournament MVPs]. Turnovers have been an issue for Green,
and he will have to keep them to a minimum.
Georgetown: Jonathan Wallace, So. 6'1" 188 pounds, 8.1 ppg 3.3 apg
While Green has had issues with-ball security, Wallace has done the opposite. During the Hoyas' last seven
games, Wallace has dished out 20 assists while turning the ball over four times, a five to one ratio.
