UF advanced to national semifinals
for the first time since 2000.
UF sophomore center Joakim Noah dances to the cheers of UF fans, including his mother (right, in the black
shirt), who braved the cold Minnesota weather to watch the Gators defeat Villanova on Sunday.

cous section in the
Metrodome, a frantic
woman punched numbers into
her cell phone and relayed mes-
sages back to her husband.

That's what it's become. For
a team of sophomores sprinkled
with some stray freshmen, juniors

basketball team representing a
football school spoke again.
"I don't have to pinch myself,"
UF forward Chris Richard said.
"I knew we were going to have
a good team from the beginning.
It was only a surprise for you all.
We knew about this last summer
when we started practicing."
As a team composed mostly
of sophomores, the Gators should
have been the naive ones. But
now the entire country is getting
a lesson on maturity, about how a
team can be young, yet composed,
about how a team can have stars
and still subdue its starlight.
The lesson is being taught by a
group that was picked by Athlon's
preseason issue to lose in the first
round of the NCAA Tournament.

Study addresses 'leftist totalitarianism' in schools
* NOT MANY STUDENTS COMPLAIN
OF CURTAILED RIGHTS, STUDY SAYS.
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Casting skepticism on a cause championed
by conservative activists, a recent study states
that 1 percent of grievances filed at Florida
universities accuse faculty of encroaching on
students' First Amendment rights.
The Office of Program Policy Analysis and
Government Accountability, an agency of the
Florida Legislature, published the study this
month at the request of legislators investigat-

ing the issue of academic freedom.
Academic freedom, broadly, denotes
the right of students and faculty to pursue
knowledge without obstruction. In recent
years, activist groups and Republican legis-
lators have waved the rhetoric of academic
freedom behind a march on excessive and
oppressive liberalism in higher education.
Tom Auxter, president of statewide fac-
ulty union United Faculty of Florida, said
the Accountability Office study collapses that
"This is a made-up problem," he said.
"Actually, it has much more to do with trying
to discredit faculty and discredit higher edu-
cation so that the public is not so outraged
when they cut money."

Students are encouraged to broach their
complaint with the faculty member involved.
If dissatisfied, the student may file a com-

will create a fact-finding committee to evalu-

appeal that decision to one of four UF vice
presidents. That official's ruling is final.

New Black Panther leader likens Bush to a terrorist
* SPEECH ATTRACTED 40 PEOPLE.
By JACQUELINE DAVISON
Through the Civil Rights Movement,
blacks have been integrated into a burning
house known as America, a controversial
black nationalist said Sunday evening.
Borrowing the concept from Martin Luther
King Jr., Malik Zulu Shabazz, leader of the
New Black Panther Party, said America's fire
was started by God and was only fueled by
King and Malcolm X.
"It has been truth in America that has ac-
celerated this fire," Shabazz said. "As Dr. King
tried to be a fireman and tried to put the fire
out, actually Dr. King was a part of the fuel
that kept the fire burning."
About 40 people attended the two-hour
speech in the Arredondo Room of the Reitz
Union. Shabazz was brought to UF in coor-
dination with Volunteers for International
Student Affairs' International Month 2006.
"I think it was good to get the positive
message across," said Gabriel DuPree, VISA's
director of speakers for VISA International
Month. "It's important that the truth is spread
Shabazz was paid $1,000 to speak, and the
'money was used to cover travel and boarding
expenses, DuPree said.
The theme of International Month is "One
Love," which Shabazz touched
On on throughout his speech.
Campus "Is one love a reality in
America?" he asked. "In order
for this level of peace to be achieved, the peace
breaker must be removed. Unfortunately,
there cannot be one love right now as long as
George Bush is ruling on the planet."
Shabazz said Bush is the No. 1 terrorist in
the world for putting troops in Iraq.
"I don't lay down at night and you don't
lay down at night fearing what Osama bin
Laden might do to you," he said:
He added that studies have shown that
human civilization started with black people.
"This is not black supremacy," Shabazz
said. "This is the antidote to the virus of white

creasing in America with the middle class

Laborers start week of protests against McDonald's
By DOMINICK E. TAO
The same group of farm workers
that succeeded in a boycott against
Taco Bell in 2005 is now targeting
McDonald's, and their first protest
was under the golden arches on
Northwest 13th Street.
On Sunday, more than 50
Around the Coalition
GaIneSVlle of Immokalee
Florida farm laborers, demanded
increased wages for workers who
pick tomatoes for McDonald's.
"The CIW influenced Taco Bell.
If McDonald's doesn't heed the
warning, another national boy-
cott might change things," said
Jonathan Skeet Surrency, 19, a pro-
tester from Gainesville.
The coalition is on a week-
long, nationwide tour calling for
McDonald's to pressure its tomato
suppliers to pay its workers "one
cent more" per pound for the toma-
toes they pick.
They hope this tour will be as
successful as their 2005 Taco Bell
boycott, which resulted in an agree-
ment with Taco Bell's parent com-
pany to raise workers' profits from
40 cents to 72 cents for each bucket
Even though the protesters'
chants were in Spanish, their color-
ful signs were clear.
"Sub-poverty wages make me

chest of a distressed-looking cutout

"I'm not lovin' it," read another.

was "The Clown. You're lying.

Gay fraternity tries to gather support from community
* ANYONE OVER THE AGE OF 18
By KYLIE CRAIG
Of UF's 33 fraternities, none are tailored
for gay students. Paul Nichols decided that
needed to change.
Nichols, who works for UF's Department
of Housing and Residence Education, began
efforts to found a Gainesville chapter for Delta
Lambda Phi at the beginning of the year.
Delta Lambda Phi is a national social fra-
eternity for gay, bisexual and progressive men,
according to its Web site.
It will finish recruiting today. Four people
have expressed interest in joining, Nichols
The Gainesville chapter will be a commu-
nity-based chapter because it will allow UF
and non-UF students to join. Because Delta
Lambda Phi allows non-UF students to join, it
will not be associated with the university.
Nichols said he got the idea after reading a
story in the Alligator about students wanting
to start a similar chapter last Fall.
"It kind of fell flat," he said. "That's why I
kind of picked up the torch from that point."
Delta Lambda Phi has 22 chapters na-
tionwide, including one at Miami's Florida
International University the only chapter
in the state.
"It kind of fell flat. That's why I
kind of picked up the torch from
founder of UF's chapter of Delta Lambda Phi
"Our overall goal is to help defeat stereo-
types that gay men are all about cubs and par-
ties and not giving back to their communities
and cities," he said.
Nichols said the group will be very similar
to other fraternities and will have an eight-
week pledge process. The group's main differ-
ence, however, will be that any men over the
age of 18 will be able to join.
"The only potential problem I see is that
we may get people with a predatory motive
who see this as a chance to get with a younger
man," Nichols said. "We have safeguards in
place to weed out those kind of people. This is
not a place to go for dates."
SFCC student Caz Marciniak, 28, said he
plans to pledge the group.
"I think having a community fraternity is a
great thing," Marciniak said, adding, "I want
to help people figure out who they are. It's go-
ing to be about helping people."

Mishaps don't diminish enthusiasm at BSU pageant
Kenneth Copeland and Marquetta Ivy celebrate after being crowned Mr. and Miss Black Student Union
at the organization's scholarship pageant Friday night in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
* MR. AND MISS BSU WERE
CROWNED AT THE PAGEANT.
By JENNIFER COX
Alligator Contributing Writer
The Reitz Union Grand Ballroom
was filled in a frenzy as about 300
eager faces rushed through the door
to see nine contestants compete
for the titles of Mr. and Miss Black
Student Union on Friday night.
The Egyptian-themed scholar-
ship pageant, "Kings and Queens
Unveiled," was supposed to start
at 8 p.m., but doors opened at about
9:30 p.m. Sound and lighting trou-
bles caused an hour and a half delay
and a restless crowd.
Spinal Tech, which usually
handles technical work at the Reitz
Union, was unavailable for the
event. Last year's Mr. and Miss
BSU, Will Atkins and Ashley Gantt,
were responsible for planning the
event and did not find out Spinal

The production's equipment was
working perfectly before the show,

problems began to arise.
Despite the difficulties, the show
went on, featuring competitions
in areas of business attire, evening
gowns and talent performances.
Kenneth Copeland, a coastal and
civil engineering sophomore, and
Marquetta Ivy, a telecommunica-
tions freshman, were crowned Mr.
and Miss BSU.
"I was surprised. It's indescrib-
able," Ivy said. "I was relieved and
reassured because I knew I could do
She performed a monologue
about the sexual and physical abuse
of women. Copeland played the pia-
no and sang for the talent portion.
The winners receive scholarships
and executive positions in BSU.
"It is the job of Mr. and Miss
BSU to serve as a positive visual
representation of BSU," said Denise
Jean-Louis, BSU president.
The pageant winners also have
the responsibility to plan the next
Mr. and Miss BSU pageant.
Copeland hopes to unite BSU
with other cultures by attending and
supporting their events. Atkins said
he will meet with Copeland and Ivy
to let them know what to expect.
"I wasn't mad with anything
because stuff happens," Atkins said.

By BECCA GOLDMAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Nearly 2,000 locals and students
sampled more than 100 different
beers at the 10th annual Greater
Gator Beer Festival on Saturday.
"It's a lot of fun," said Ricki
Black, the event's coordinator. "But
we're trying to educate people on
the variety of beers out there."
After paying $25 at the door,
participants grabbed a cup and
wandered through the parking
lot behind Magnolia Parke, drink-
ing two-ounce samples of beer at
each tent. As they drank beer from
around the world, attendees ate
chicken wings and pizza from such
local restaurants as Hungry Howie's
and Gator's Dockside.
"My strategy is to get drunk be-
fore it ends," said 27-year-old Scott
Herring while sipping on a Samuel
Adams sample. Earlier in the festi-
val, Herring vomited hours' worth
of beer and $3 Jagermeister shots.
But UF student Mick Utecht said
he attended the festival to enjoy beer
from a variety of breweries. He said
he has tried beer from coast to coast.
"Bud's OK after I've mowed
the lawn," he said. "I thought there
"It's a lot of fun. But we're

coordinator of Greater
Gator Beer Festival
would be more rmcrobrews here."
Despite his disappointment in
the variety, Utecht said he loved
coming out just to support the art of
brewing good beer.
"I love the liveliness and the
quality of people," he said.
To keep the crowd safe and
under control, nine security guards
roamed the premises. Signs with
phone numbers for taxi services
were placed throughout the festival
to eliminate drunken driving.
For those inhibited attendees
with cars, Max's Towing offered a
tow home for a flat rate, Black said.
Budweiser sponsored the service.
"For this many people drunk,
they've handled themselves very
maturely and respectfully," said Jeff
Cyman, head of security.
World Class Beer Imports at-
tracted a crowd throughout the day,
offering visitors almost 20 different
varieties of beer from around the
world. Robert Stevens, a vendor
at the tent, said the. Belgium and
Russian beers were most popular,
especially a blueberry variety.
Stevens, a former UF student,
said Gainesville has one of widest
selections of beer in the state. And he
should know he's been drinking
beer since the Salty Dog was called
"I've probably spilled more than
most people have drank," he said.

The bill is designed to make it more difficult for spammers
to get e-mail addresses from state agencies. Currently, these
addresses must be published to comply with public records re-

We want to be clear: We hate spam as much as, and prob-
ably more than, the next guy. For years, we've been supporting
legislation to make spamming a capital offense.
But while we'd like to make spamming more difficult, con-
cealing public records from the public isn't the way'to do it. If
passed, the bill will remove e-mail addresses from published
state records and limit public records requests to five e-mail
That goes too far. State agency workers represent the popu-
lation of the great state of Florida. That population always de-
serves the right to contact their representatives.
And making those workers sift through some unwanted e-

Barbara Petersen, president of the First Amendment
Foundation, opposes the bill. "It doesn't make any sense," she
said. "You have no expectation of privacy with your e-mail ac-

We appreciate the tip.
To be fair, much of the doc-

But it's a lesson that students

UF groups teach 200 kids science
By ASHLEY PACK
Alligator Contributing Writer
Elementary, middle and high school pupils from north
central Florida tested their skills at the 2006 Regional SECME
Olympiad held Saturday at UE.
SECME, an organization that promotes math, science and
engineering, sought to use the event to teach children and
young adults the importance of these fields at an early age.
About 200 pupils came to the event, which was sponsored
by UF's College of Engineering Honor Society, said Morgan
Grimes, a coordinator for the event.
Jonathan Earle, associate dean for student affairs in the
college, said he enjoys the competition because the teams are
always so passionate.
"It's a great way for them to have fun while they are still
learning," Earle said.
One of the main events was an egg drop, where pupils made
contraptions that were supposed to keep a raw egg safe when it
was dropped from one story up in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
Another event had teams build water bottle rockets that
were shooting off in every direction in Flavet Field.
A second competition for middle and high school students
was called the mousetrap car. Teams built cars using a mouse-
trap to provide means of power. Tiffany Slean, a freshman from
Hawthorne Middle/High School, competed with team mem-
bers with a car they modified from last year. The car had several
problems they had to work out before the competition.
"The first couple of times, the axles snapped the balsa wood
right in half," Slean said.
More than 100 volunteers attended the event, including
those from the National Society of Black Engineers and the
American Society of Civil Engineers.
Virtual advising aids in registration
By KIM FULSCHER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Students who go crazy near registra-
tion time now have a resource to bring
them a few clicks closer to sanity.
A brand-new advising Web site was
launched Wednesday and can be found
at www.ufadvising.ufl.edu. Created by
E. Jane Luzar, UP Provost Fellow, the site
is intended to increase communication
among UF's 16 colleges. The Web site
provides information on topics such as
majors, courses, critical dates, require-
ments and wellness counseling.
"A few mouse clicks allows me to by-
pass convoluted advising information,"
said Justin Laufer, a UF senior who re-
viewed the site before its launch. "I wish
I had it freshman year."
The Web site was launched in time
for Fall and Summer registration, which

ing information. I wish I had it
"What I thought was really amazing
was that the Web site is a compilation of a
lot of different resources all in one place,"
Luzar said that if students are advised
well, they are better able to do their aca-
demics and add complimentary activities
to their schedules.
For that reason, the new advising
Web site has links and information about
extracurricular activities, such as study
abroad programs, research, internships
and leadership positions. In the long run,
Luzar said, this should make for society-
ready members of the UF community.
"Holistically, what makes a more
complete student is when student life
and academics are well-integrated," she
Luzar's team is also working on com-
pletely revising the Wednesday Update,
including improving its functionality,
providing a Web interface and offering
it earlier in the week to make it more

A cacophony of yips, yaps, meows and barks
filled The Oaks Mall South Lawn on Saturday
and Sunday as six area pet rescue organizations
teamed up for the Lucky Pets Adoptathon.
The event, a part of Maddie's Pet Rescue
Project of Alachua County, featured about 200
adoption-ready animals over the two-day pe-
riod. An arc of tents housed cats, dogs, kittens
and puppies, each awaiting their chance to be
liberated from pens and paraded across the lawn
for visitors to admire.
Sixty-five pets were ad-
Around opted by 3 p.m. Saturday.
Gainesv le Kerrie Mitchell, Lucky Pets
Adoptathon event coordina-
tor, said the application and
fees to adopt a pet vary with the organizations.
"They try to balance animals they know will
be adopted very quickly with animals that need
to be adopted out [because of health reasons],"
Typically, she said, there is a three-day grace
period for adopters to make sure their new pets
fit in at home.
Michelle Goodrich co-founded Helping
Hands Rescue which operates out of West
End Animal Hospital in Newberry in 1999.
Adoption from her organization starts at $125
and has gone up to $250 for one animal that
required major surgery.
Helping Hands Rescue brought 39 cats and
dogs to the weekend's event, and 17 were ad-
opted by late Saturday.

SG elections at SFCC spotlight diverse candidates

The early morning air is chilly outside
Starbucks, where a few bleary eyed pa-

Though he has only been enrolled at
SFCC since January, the political science
major already has ambitious plans for
improving the college's main campus in
"The first priority is communication,"
says Findley, who is heading SFCC's
Students United Party ticket.
Student Government elections at
SFCC typically draw few voters, and
Findley hopes to promote interaction
between SG and its constituents.
But the Key West native is about more
than just politics.
Before transferring to SFCC, Findley
played football at Wingate
University in North
Carolina, and his child- -'
hood in Key West taught .
him to appreciate fishing. J
"I'm just a fun-loving
guy," he says.
Since Findley trans-
ferred from Wingate this semester, his
ambitions at SFCC have been increasing
steadily. Eventually, he hopes to become
governor of Florida, but for now he's
content to spread the word about his
candidacy for Student Body president.
"I guess you could say it was either go
big or go home," he says.

A horde of students huddled
around a big-screen TV outside of
The SwVamp Restaurant on Sunday,
counting down the final seconds
of UF's Elite Eight win against
Then, as the dock hit zero, and
the Gators' third trip to the Final

they cheered some more. Then they
reached for their cell phones.
Though student tickets don't go
on sale until 5:30 p.m. today, many
excited students scrambled to secure
travel arrangements and admission
for Saturday's national semifinal
game against George Mason.
"I don't care if I have to take

major holding a Miller Lite in one

"I'm going to be in his office to-

Fitzpatrick said he had attended
every game at the O'Connell Center
during his four years at UF, courtesy
of his girlfriend, Kristina Kra,.who is
a member of The Dazzlers.
And after being pleasantly sur-
prised by this year's young team,
he's not about to miss the Gators'

prepare, you can't overwhelm your guys

ally understand this is what we've got to do,
and it's simple to them. I think Anthony did
a great job today breaking it down that way
for those kids."
And with Noah and Al Horford, who
had 12 points and 15 rebounds, patrolling
the middle, the Gators forced Villanova to
beat them from the
Elite Eight perimeter. -
UF 75 Randy Foye scored
Villanova 62 25 points, a majority
of which came either
from the free throw
line or on mid-range jump shots, and Allan
Ray finished 5 of 19 from the floor.
"Their defense also did a great job, I can't
take anything away from them," Ray said.
"Every shot was contested; there were very
few real open looks. They did a great job
contesting our shots and making sure we
took tough shots."
Noah hit 13 of his 15 foul shots, while
12 of Taurean Green's 19 points came from
the charity stripe. Noah was named the
Minneapolis Regional Most Outstanding
Player, and Horford and Green joined him
on the All-Regional Team.
"You know, all year we've been talk-
ing about staying focused because that's
what's going to get us to the Final Four,"
Corey Brewer said. "We were just telling
each other we have to stay focused for two

With Villanova playing a smaller

Gators take 3rd; coach earns top honor at SECs
By CHRIS WHITE
The Gators fell behind the only two
teams they couldn't defeat this season on
Saturday at the Southeastern Conference
Gymnastics Championships, but all wasn't
lost in the team's third-place finish.
UF coach Rhonda Faehn was honored
as the SEC Coach of the Year, her first SEC
honor, becoming the fifth Gators coach to
earn the award.
"We are all so excited about it, and we
are really proud of her," freshman Corey
Hartung said. "She really is the best coach
and definitely deserves it for the work she
does with us."
But despite top-10 all-around 'perfor-
mances from Hartung and sophomore
Ashley Reed, the No. 3 Gators could not
outscore defending national champion No.
1 Georgia and No. 5 Alabama.
Hartung, who entered the meet as the
No. 14 all-around scorer in the SEC, fin-
ished tied with Georgia's Tiffany Tolnay for

fifth place. Both gymnasts earned a 39.4.
"It's a great feeling," Hartung said.
"This was a great experience and a huge
meet for all of us, so I'm really proud."
While the Gators' 196.275 was better
than the team's score at last year's SEC
meet and earned a pass to the NCAA
Regional Championships, it wasn't enough
to defeat Georgia and Alabama, which
scored 197.275 and 196.975, respectively.
"[Georgia] was strong," Faehn
said. "They had no mistakes, didn't
have to count a fall and their mo-
mentum just built up their scores."
Faehn said the Gators didn't have a
problem building momentum either, but
that they struggled to stay focused in

need to treat it as a regular competition,"
she said. "Don't get caught up in the fans,

momentum. Just stay focused and stay ag-
Hartung said she didn't have a problem
staying focused in front of 7,607 fans or on
the apparatuses away from the rest of the
team. She said she competed in similar
environments in club gymnastics compe-
titions and that the real competition was
against the clock, from the extended warm-
ups to the final round of competition.
"We had to be ready from 3 p.m. to 10
p.m., so it's a long day," she said. "We had
to constantly stay pumped up and ready to
go the whole time."

Lochte named NCAA's best
By RACHEL ROBINS
Three individual NCAA
Championships and one NCAA
Swimmer of the Year award can take
four years to earn. UF senior Ryan
Lochte did it in three days.
Lochte ended his career on Saturday
at the 2006 NCAA Championships at the
Georgia Tech Aquatic Center in Atlanta.
He officially cemented his status as the
most successful individual swimmer
in UF history, winning seven NCAA
Championships, including one relay.
But his performances could not carry
the Gators to an NCAA Championship,
as the team finished in fifth place with
242.5 points, 204 behind six-time cham-
pion Auburn. However, the story of the
meet was Lochte.
"The most amazing [thing] is that he
is the same beach boy as he was when
he first came in," UF coach Gregg Troy
said. "Success has not gone to his head
"Breaking records never
gets old. I'm just glad I'm the
one doing it."
UF senior swimmer
On Saturday he won the 200-yard
backstroke with a time of 1:37.68, new
NCAA and American records.
With his title in the 200 backstroke,
Lochte surpassed Anthony Nesty, cur-
rent UF assistant coach, for the most
individual titles won by a UF swimmer.
On Friday, he won the 400 IM with a
time of 3:38.15, a new NCAA record.
The day before, Lochte won the 200
individual medley and with it came new
NCAA and American records. Later, in
the 400 medley relay, Lochte led off the
team event with NCAA and American
records in the 100 backstroke.
"It feels great," Lochte said. "I had
my family, my team, everyone support-
For all of his accomplishments in the
2006 NCAA Championships, Lochte was
named NCAA Swimmer of the Year for
the second straight year.
He leaves UF with seven school in-
dividual records, 11 overall including
relays, and remains undefeated in dual-
meet races since his sophomore year.
"It's sad that it was my last individual
race," Lochte said, "but to have my team
and family behind me was the greatest
thing. Breaking records never gets old.
I'm just glad I'm the one doing it."
Next up for the two-time Olympic
medalist will be a trip to China as part
of the United States team in the World
Short Course Swimming Championships
The meet was also the last competi-
tion for UF senior Brian Hartley. During
his collegiate career, he won 10 All-
American honors and was a consistent
leader for UF.
The Gators may not have to worry
about life without Lochte and Hartley, as
two freshmen swimmers competed well
in the Championships for the Gators.
Lucas Saletta, who joined the team at
the beginning of this year, won five All-
Americans. Bradley Ally also did well in
his first NCAA Championships. He won
seven All-American titles.

By BRIAN STEELE
othe UF softball team was look-
ing for momentum before the heart
of Southeastern Conference play,
the Gators may have found it just
On Sunday, UF (26-11, 5-4 SEC)
reinforced the belief that they are ca-
pable of coming back and winning
dose games in the SEC.
It may have taken three extra
innings, but the host Gators finally
took their weekend series from
Arkansas, defeating the Razorbacks
3-2. On Saturday, UF split a double-
header, winning 9-8 and losing 5-1.
With all the dose games the
Gators have played, shortstop
Lauren Roussell, who had the win-
ning sacrifice fly on Sunday, knows
her team is ready for any situation.
"[The close wins] say we're
not going down without a fight,"
Roussell said. "We're going to
come back. If you think you have
us down, you got us wrong. You
may get up on us, but we're going to
come back in the end and bite you.
We don't give up at all; we fight."
It wasn't just Roussell's sacrifice
fly. Whereas the once power-hungry
Gators relied on the home-run ball,
they have now turned their focus to
their speedy baserunners.
On Sunday, senior Stacie
Pestrak stole third and scored off
an ecror. Pestrak and freshman Kim
Waleszonia accounted for five of
UF's nine hits on bunt singles.
"It's awesome, and we really
have three, but you don't know it
yet," said UF coach Tim Walton of
Pestrak and Waleszonia's speed.
"When Brooke Johnson gets on base,
she's fast. ... When you have speed,
you make the defense do things they
don't want to do."
Even with the emphasis on
speed, the Gators still had a rough
time scoring runs.
"We were struggling," Walton
said. "It was easy to see that their
pitcher was doing a great job. It
looked like we -were guessing a
little bit. She was throwing strikes,
and we're looking for balls. She's
throwing balls, and we're looking
While the hitters floundered at
times, however, freshmen pitch-
ers Lindsay Littlejohn and Stacey
Nelson combined for a solid effort
Sunday. They allowed eight hits and
two runs while striking out six.
Now with a series win against a
quality SEC opponent, the pitching
staff's confidence is growing.
"I think that once. you have a
good outing and you come out
strong, your confidence is going
to be better," Littlejohn said. "Of
course, my confidence was getting
stronger as the game was going on,
as I was getting used to the batters
and used to what I should throw
"All the pitchers on this team, we
just need to keep doing what we can
when we get out there, and that'll
boost our confidence up."

So much for ViHanova' advantage over tFs guard play. The Wildcats sported a-
four-guard starting lineup while UF countered with Green. The sophomore played
as many minutes as any of Villanova's guards and scored more points (19) than
SAllan Ray and Mike Nardi combined. Most of Green's points came from the

MINNEAPOLIS You could call it the
Rule of Six.
1994: UF defeats Boston College; the
Gators advance to the Final Four.
2000: UF defeats Oklahoma State; the
Gators go to the Final Four.
And again, in 2006, history repeated
itself. UF took a 12-point first-half lead and
never allowed Villanova to creep closer
than 3 during.the second half before pull-
ing away for a 75-62 win. With the win, the
Gators earned their third trip to the Final
Four in school history. UF will face 11th-
seeded George Mason in a national semifi-
nal matchup in Indianapolis on Saturday.
"I am very, very proud of these kids,"
UF coach Billy Donovan said. "It has been
such a remarkable run up to this point, just
with so much uncertainty surrounding
this season with people leaving early and
these guys having to step up."
The story of the game, however, was J

how they scored their points.
For the game, Villanova shot just 24.7
percent from the floor, including just 4 for
23 from behind the 3-point line, while al-
lowing the Gators to grab 53 rebounds.

sistant coach Anthony Grant much of the
credit for their game plan after compiling
a "personnel tape," which highlights an

film together, you should see that film,"

on edge after you see that film, there's go-
