LAST DANCE: UF VS. UCLA


Gators to face


Bruins for title

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

INDIANAPOLIS And now your
Final Four public service announce-
ment courtesy of Adrian Moss.
"Don't riot. Don't get arrested over
this," the forward said. "You've got
school the next day and you're going
to give a great town a bad rap."
Moss is planning on an NCAA
Championship tonight, and he wants
UF students to abstain from flipping
cars if the Gators defeat the Bruins.
Witness the transformation. You
have UF, flirting among the ranks
of the underrated, tiptoeing among
teams like Alabama State before the
start of the confer-
ence schedule.
You have the
Gators making the
NCAA Tournament
instead of the National Invitation
Tournament. You have Corey Brewer
crashing Cinderella's ball, taking
George Mason's slippers and throwing
them out of the Final Four carriage.
The Gators are angry. UCLA will
stand between them and history. UF
and the Bruins will square off in the
title game tonight at 9:21.
"We really feel like we haven't got-
ten any respect all year ever," point
guard Taurean Green said. "We've
been underdogs all year with some-
thing to prove. We just have to go out
and get it done."
Much of America is bitter about this
bunch. For starters, the Gators ruined
New York Times bestseller material
when they smashed George Mason's
pumpkin.
"Oh man, I was so tired of all the
Cinderella talk," forward Al Horford
said. "The bottom line was we had to
come out and win this game."
And the next opponent, a heavy-
weight of the '60s and '70s, in the same
corer with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill
Walton and John Wooden, is UCLA.

Victory leads to


dancing in streets

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer

You might have mistaken it for the second com-
ing of Steve Spurrier.
Throngs of sports fans packed every last inch of
Gator City, one of the popular bars facing the UF
campus from University Avenue. Toward the rear
of the bar, sweating employees poured drink after
drink as blissfully intoxicated patrons bellowed at
the dozen or so televisions dotting the room.
"I said, 'It's great! To be! A Flo-ri-da Ga-tor!'"
they chanted.
UF may have gained its renown as a football
school, but you wouldn't have known it Saturday
night. As revelers crowded the watering holes of
University Avenue, the spotlight shone solely on
Gators, basketball and its run through the Final
Four.
Seconds after the Gators forced the George
Mason Patriots' fairy tale to a conclusion, the
packed house at Gator City broke into a deafening
rendition of Queen's victory anthem, "We Are The
Champions."
Midnight had finally struck for Cinderella, and
the Gators fans were more than willing to kick off
their alcohol-fueled ball.
"It's been like this since 3," said Danny Hughes,
a Gator City bartender struggling to keep. up with
patrons' insatiable demand for alcohol.
Though the cramped house had been reduced
to standing room only, most of the ecstatic revelers
didn't seem to mind the inconvenience.
"Gator games are better than sex itself,"
pointed out Travis Byrd, a UF student relegated to
standing in the bar's cramped aisles.
Minutes after the game concluded, swarms
of manic fans poured out of the bars and onto
University Avenue, where they formed an ocean

Woman jumps to her death
at College Manor Apartments
Roads were dosed near cam-
pus after a woman jumped to her
death early Saturday morning.
The woman jumped from the
fourth story of College Manor
Apartments, at 1225 SW Second
Ave., around 4:45 a.m., said
Gainesville Police Sgt. Keith
Kameg.
The woman, 48, died at the
scene and was not a university
student, Kameg said.
By 5 a.m., the street in front of
the apartment building, which is
about two blocks east of campus,
was crowded with 12 police cars,
two ambulances and a forensics
unit.
The vehicles blocked the
driveway of College Manor and
the westbound side of Southwest
Second Avenue.
Police are still investigating
the case, Kameg said.
College Manor representative
Brandon Pohn said that while
most residents at the apartment
building are students, some non-
students live there as well.
Pohn said he didn't know
much about the incident but said
residents had been coming into
his office Saturday afternoon to
ask about the commotion caused
by all the emergency vehicles.
UF student Darcy Fawcett,
who lives on the fourth floor of
College Manor, said noises from
the street woke her up.
Fawcett said she saw a team
of paramedics and police offi-
cers crowded around the street
below her next-door neighbor's
window.

Dance Marathon raises almost $340,000 for charity


By MELISSA SMILES
Alligator Contributing Writer

They danced like no one was
watching and put pulling an all-
nighter to shame.
Wearing bright T-shirts and
marathon-runner identification
numbers on their backs, 594 danc-
ers stayed awake and on their feet
for 32 hours at the 12th annual
Dance Marathon at the Stephen
C. O'Connell Center. The event
raised $339,372 and awareness for
Children's Miracle Network, which
works with Shands Children's
Hospital at UF About 600 student
volunteers also took shifts to help.
Green, foam alligator hats filled
the gym, and popular UF cheers
were chanted when dancers stood
to watch the Gators win the basket-
ball game on a large screen.
"We're in the O'Dome, and
there is no better place to watch
the Final Four than to be on-site
where the Gators play," said Mike
Kampel, a biological engineering
sophomore. "Well, unless you're in
Indianapolis."
Brightly colored posters of en-
couragement covered the walls,
beach balls bounced on top of the
crowd, and jump -ropes, board
games and coloring books be-
came the most valuable currency.
Organizers also provided a study
station for those who needed to
study for upcoming quizzes and
tests.

nior, and Richard Shane, a manage-

ment and criminology senior, have
participated in Dance Marathon for
four years.
"My first year doing Dance
Marathon, Richard and I agreed
that we would do it every year,"
Shacter said. "It's kind of exciting
that we've managed to do it."
Their favorite part of Dance
Marathon was periodically learning
a 5-minute choreographed dance.


Finance sophomore Ivan Llanos,
said many students grew tired dur-
ing the event and devised ways to
get off their feet, which is forbid-
den.
"I went to grab a volleyball that
rolled under the stage, and a hand
came out of nowhere and handed it
back to me," Llanos said. "I looked,
and there were a couple of people
sitting under there."


Llanos said people also sat in
bathroom stalls to avoid standing.
Friends from the outsidebrought
gift baskets for encouragement, but
latex items, caffeine products and
visible watches were prohibited.
Caffeine negatively impacts
energy levels and watches distract
the dancers, said Public Relations
Captain Kate Storey. Latex is
a health hazard to the Miracle


Children.
More than 30 UF organiza-
tions were involved this year,
said Overall Public Relations
Chairwoman Emily Kiser.
Organizations were paired, and
this year, the Miracle Cup was
awarded to Chi Omega Sorority
and Kappa Sigma Fraternity, the
pair that raised the most money and
had the most Spirit Points.
Quitting greatly diminishes a
team's chance to win the Miracle-
Cup, but dancers rarely quit, Kiser
said. No dancers quit this year.
This year, 27 families and 31
Miracle Children from all over
Florida attended the event.
The dancers sat on the floor
to reserve energy during most
of the introductions at the open-
ing ceremonies, but they eagerly
jumped to their feet to applaud the
Miracle Families as they entered the
O'Connell Center.
Last year, the event raised nearly
$320,000, and it has raised $1.6 mil-
lion in the past 11 years.
Children's Miracle Network
Dance Marathon Adviser Annie
Morton said most of the money is
raised before the actual event, and
the.network does not set goals for
it.
Money was raised through
pre-events, student-organization
activities and the Letter Writing
.Campaign, where students sent
letters to friends and family and
asked for sponsorship donations.
Students needed to raise $250 to
become dance participants.

The Harry S. Truman Foundation has selected UF students Bruce Haupt and Ashley Bittner to receive its
2006 scholarship.


Two students win high honors


* THE TRUMAN SCHOLARS
EXCEL IN PUBLIC SERVICE.

By KIM FULSCHER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Odds are that two UF students
would not win the same national
award in the same year. But for
juniors Ashley Bittner anlt Bruce
Haupt, the odds were wrong.
Both students were selected by
the Harry S. Truman Scholarship
Foundation as recipients for its
2006 national scholarship, which is
geared toward students preparing
for leadership in public service. The
winners received $30,000 for gradu-
ate school in a public service field.
It was early March, when Bittner
and Haupt traveled to Atlanta to in-
terview for the award, that they first
suspected they both might win.
"At one point on the drive,
I turned to Ashley and said,
'Wouldn't it be weird if we both
won?'" Haupt said. "I don't think
either of us expected this. It's an
incredible honor."
Haupt and Bittner are two of 75
college students selected nation-
wide for the award from a pool
of 598 nominated candidates who
demonstrated interest in govern-
ment policy and public service.
In May, the winners will attend
the Truman Scholars Leadership
Week in Liberty, Mo., and will fo-
cus on public issues through group
projects and presentations. The
summer after the winners graduate,
they have the option to attend the
Summer Institute in Washington,
D.C., to intern at agencies of their
interest.
"I think that it's going to be great
to work with the people like Bruce,"
Bittner said. "It's a wonderful op-
portunity to get to pursue your
dream to do public service. It is very
rewarding, and I'm very excited."


Bittner, a political science and his-
tory major, also minors in economics
and environmental studies. She
focused on oil drilling in the eastern
part of Gulf of Mexico for her public
policy proposal, reflecting her pas-
sion for sustainable development
issues. Born and raised in Naples,
she said her love for the beach led
to her connection with ocean-related
issues.
"Our Truman scholarship-
policies were something we were in-
vested in, something that mattered
to us," Bittner said about the papers
they wrote to receive the scholar-
ships. "I spent my
Student childhood going to the
Life beach, traveling to the
Keys and fishing, so it's
something that's really important to
me to protect the environment."
When Bittner is unable to get to
the beach, she said she loves spend-
ing time outdoors with friends,
whom she describes as her sources
for motivation and encouragement.
Bittner said she also enjoys visit-
ing Deja Brew Caf6, which serves
organic Fair Trade coffee, the only
type she will drink.
"I'm a big coffee buff. That's one
of the things that led me to volunteer
in Costa Rica over Spring Break at a
coffee farm," said Bittner, who vol-
unteered as a Florida Alternative
Breaks site leader this Spring
Break. "I was interested in the
trip because it' coupled my
academic interests of sustainable
development with a personal
interest."
Like Bittner, Haupt is a po-
litical science major. A native
of Merritt Island, Fla., Haupt
transferred to UF from Brevard
Community College with an as-
sociate of arts degree in 2004.
His community college back-
ground and concern for fellow
transfer students was his unique


trait in the application process,
he said.
"Community college is my
passion, my story and where I
come from," said Haupt, who
dropped out of high school and
started community college after
a three-year hiatus. "I guess that
was intriguing. I'm interested
in community college, and who
-else is?
"Community colleges aren't
sexy," he added.
Haupt's proposal focused
on altering the Florida Bright
Futures Scholarship program so
more students may receive fi-
nancial aid to attend community
college on a need basis.
Both Bittner and Haupt agree
that UF prepared them for the
detailed application process.
The process included a 16-sec-
tion application and an intense
interview that has been known to
leave some candidates crying in
the past, Haupt said.
"You pretty much have to
have your life figured out to fill
out the application, which is kind
of nuts," Haupt said, adding that
he's learned and grown through
the process. "It's just that in-
depth of an application process."
Both Bittner and Haupt named
Sheila Dickison, the director of
the Honors Program, and pro-
fessors Fiona Barnes and Kellie
Roberts as sources of motivation.
They said they provided a lot of
help in the editing process and
provided many mock interviews.
Bittner advised fellow stu-
dents interested in attaining their
goals to "identify what you're ac-
tually passionate about and what
you want to do. Whatever that is,
go after it, because that is what will
make your time here so much more
enjoyable. That's what you are here
for."

CLO authority


still undecided

By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Writer
srodriguez@alligator.org

An Alachua County judge overturned his previous
ruling that the UF Board of Trustees has final author-
ity over the university's last remaining co-op, the
Collegiate Living Organization, on Friday.
A replacement trustee, or a party responsible for the
property, was not named. The judge will hear CLO's
side of the story within 20 days to determine if further
action should be taken.
CLO president Jonas Blake said the judge changed
his mind because he thought the co-op should have" a
say in what happens to the property.
"It's called due process," said CLO attorney Scott
Krueger. "We believe that UF is the residual beneficiary
of this trust.".
UF and the CLO have been at odds since the results
of a November inspection deemed the facility unsafe
to live in.
The 65 residents of the low-
UF cost facility were required to
., a.' leave by 4 p.m. on March 17, but
residents have yet to do so.
UF filed a lawsuit last month asking a court to make
the university the ultimate authority over the property
located at 117 NW 15th St.
The court then decided that the UF Board of
Trustees, UF's highest governing body, has the final say
over the property.
CLO officials have questioned whether UF should
be entitled to that role.
Krueger said the CLO should be allowed to petition
to appoint a trustee.
However, UF spokesman Steve Orlando said the
judge's decision to overturn his previous ruling chang-
es nothing.
"We are the trustee," Orlando said. "We will do our
very best to carry out our responsibilities. We'll have to
see how everything works out in court."
Orlando said the judge's decision sets everybody
back to square one.
"Our issue has never been to be an antagonist
against the CLO," Orlando said. "The original issue is
our concern for the people who are living there."
Krueger said he was not notified by UF when the
original suit was filed, which upset officials and resi-
dents of the facility.
Orlando said the university was not required to no-
tify anyone.
"Unfortunately, part of what's making it difficult to
fulfill our responsibilities is that they won't let us on
the property," Orlando said..
Residents are required to do basic maintenance inr
order to keep the building in proper living conditions.
UF's inspections have concluded that the residents
have not properly filled that role, which CLO residents
and officials have contested.
Some believe the CLO could be the last remaining
studentco-op in the state of Florida.

UF wants more graduate students


* PRESIDENT MACHEN SAID HE
WANTS MORE PH.D. STUDENTS.

By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Staff Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

When courting top-notch graduate
students, UF recruiters cannot offer the
health insurance package that would
clinch their coupling.
"We have the money, they have
the interest we just can't consum-
mate the union," said Ken Gerhardt,
interim dean of the graduate school, at
the Friday meeting of the UF Board of
Trustees.
At the meeting,-UF President Bernie
Machen presented a dismal comparison
of UF's graduate health insurance pro-
gram to those of Top 10 public research
universities.
UF pays for 31 percent of its gradu-
ate students' health insurance plans, far
less than most of the top schools do.
Likewise, the university trails its rivals


in the ratio of graduate-to-undergradu-
ate students.
A strong graduate program matters
to a university pursuing a higher rank
because graduate students do the bulk
of the institution's research.
"We have the money, they have
the interest we just can't
consummate the union."
Ken Gerhardt
Interim dean of the graduate school

Machen's "Strategic Work Plan for
the University of Florida," which maps
UF's route to the Top 10, repeatedly
mentions the improvement and expan-
sion of graduate programs as goals.
Machen said UF has plenty of mas-
ter's candidates, but its doctoral ranks
need to grow.
That's why UF is lobbying the state
for money to fund graduate health in-
surance 100 percent. But because not all
state universities give graduate research


the primacy that UF does, Machen said
UF lacks the lobbying "umph" that
would come with statewide teamwork.
Wayne McCormack, director of the
interdisciplinary program in biomedi-
cal sciences, said the inability to support
graduate students financially hinders
his program's recruitment.
"We get really good students, but, to
be honest, we don't get the cream of the
"crop," he said.
College graduates, when evaluat-
ing their further-education suitors,
have different criteria than high school
graduates do, said Greg Neimeyer, co-
ordinator of the graduate program in
psychology. Instead of coursework and
campus life, graduate students priori-
tize a university's research facilities and
financial benefits.
Undergraduates are still "enjoy-
ing the waning years of their parents'
(health) coverage," Neimeyer said.
About 4,500 UF students are eligible
for university-sponsored health insur-
ance.

"What does history, do to help

"There's no program that has


more tradition or rich history

coach Ben Howland said. "These

"I think to have that tradition
that you want, to be recognized


as one of the best, you have to
have a few of those banners
up there," UF athletics director
Jeremy Foley said. "That's what
the Kentuckys have. That's what
the Indianas have, the Carolinas,
the Dukes.
"It has to start somewhere,
and I hope it starts right here."
It starts in UF's hotel rooms.
The Gators have drawn their
curtains shut.
Silence was mandatory as


they braced for insomnia Sunday
night.
"There's so many distrac-
tions," Noah said. "The hardest
time is going to sleep and the
couple of hours before you play

All this buildup, all this

Remembrance

Sept. 11 tapes reveal

lack of preparedness
It's been four and a half years since the tragedy of Sept.
11, but for some, those old wounds are being opened up
yet again.
On Friday, New York City officials released nine hours of
audio recordings of 911 operators speaking.to callers trapped
inside the World Trade Center.
Only the voices of the operators were included in the
chilling tapes, but that was enough.,
Yet amidst the heart-rending emotion of the tapes, the
central theme is how unprepared the emergency manage-
ment system was for such a terrorist attack.
For example, operators unaware of the-orders to evacuate
encouraged callers to remain in the buildings telling them
to wait for help that would never come.
"We'll get to you as soon as we can. I swear to you," said
one operator.
And another: "I don't know what to tell you.... I'm so
sorry I don't know what to tell you to do."
"The 911 tapes clearly demonstrate the 911 operators were
not given a uniform script," said Norman Siegel, an attorney
who fought for the release of the tapes. "As we listened and
read the 911 operators' comments, at times they were incon-
sistent and contradictory. You had generally the mantra of
911 operators saying, Just sit tight.'"
Of course, the blame doesn't fall on the operators, many
of whom retired or never returned to work after that day. We
were grossly underprepared at all levels of government for a
terrorist attack.
Just ask President Bush, who continued reading "The Pet
Goat" to a Florida elementary school class for more than five
minutes after he learned America was under attack.
But four and a half years, many billions of dollars and
one congressional investigation later, how much has really
changed? What evidence do we have that the system has
improved?
"You know exactly what's going to happen to the tapes,"
said New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, who opposed the
release. "They'll be blasted all over and made a spectacle."
But to ensure that our emergency management really im-
proves, we think that's exactly what we need.



Team aids Top 10 goal


A after dismantling
George Mason
L University, the Gators
are headed to the NCAA
basketball championship,
and that extra attention could
mean great things for UF.
"The one place it is sure to
impact is increased number of
applications to the University
of Florida just what we
need," said UF President
Bernie Machen at the Board of
Trustees meeting Thursday.
Machen, concerned about
the massive size of UF's un-
dergraduate student body,
was being sarcastic.
But we're not, A larger
pool of applicants means


that UF can be more selective
- generating an improve-
ment in the quality of under-
graduate students, if not the
quantity.
That's in addition to
the greater donations the
team's performance could
produce.
Even though Machen is
skeptical, we think the extra
press could be the best thing
to happen to UF in a long
time.
.So instead of dumping
thousands of dollars on
meaningless ad campaigns,
perhaps UF should be buying
the basketball team those new
high-tops.

The U.S. must not give in to terrorism


Editor's note: To illustrate why the U.S. should not
leave Iraq, the following is Matt Melone's interpreta-
tion of what a correspondence between Osama bin
Laden and President Bush might be like.
T o President Bush and the American people,
Three long years America has been fighting in Iraq,
and still you are no closer to winning this so-called
war on terror. In my last video, we called for a truce. But
now, we ask for your surrender.
We admit the infidel troops have proven themselves
tougher than we expected. For every one of them we kill,
they kill 100 of us.
But our victory is inevitable because we are patient and
willing to win by any means necessary: violence, intimida-
tion, blackmail and oppression.
We are willing to kill the civilian politicians who stand in
our way. We will kill the moderates and their families and all
those who work with the Americans until there is no one left
to defend democracy.
We would sooner see Iraq and Afghanistan destroyed
than conform to American ideals of liberty
So, we beg of you: Give up, America. Listen to Michael
Moore, the Hollywood celebrities, the punk rock bands, the
left-wing politicians, the liberal intellectuals and the hippies,
and pull out of Iraq now.
In the past, we have called for the conversion of the
American people as the only solution for peace. This time,
our demands are much more reasonable.
Here are the terms of your surrender: Leave Iraq and
Afghanistan now. Drop everything and go so power can be
transferred to us.
In return, we will refrain from targeting American civil-
ians for such a time as we see fit. If you apologize for your
imperial aggression, we may suspend jihad an extra year.


Matt Melone
Taking Up Arms
letters@alligator.org


Once the American occupiers
leave, we can make sure a woman
never steps foot in a school here
again. All this business about free-
dom being on the march has given
some Iraqi and Afghani women false
hopes of equality. We must stamp
this out and stone a few of them to
set the record straight.
-I turned on the radio the other
day, and there was a woman broad-


casting, out of Kabul! Once the American occupiers have
abandoned this land, she will pay dearly.
You have promised economic progress and free markets,
but once we are in charge, we will make sure our people put
aside hopes for wealth. You have promised freedom and po-
litical representation, but the Iraqi and Afghani people need
oppression and fear to keep them pious.
Once you leave, we will make all those who cooperated
with the Americans suffer publicly. Anyone who so much as
smiled at an American will be sorry.
So America, go home now. You are not wanted here, and
you do not have the patience for this. Give up on these hopes
of bringing democracy to the Middle East.
Just listen to Americans like Cindy Sheehan and every-
body calling for a pullout, and cut your losses. Leave Iraq
and Afghanistan in our hands, and we will put these nations
back on the proper paths of justice and morality.
This is our message to President Bush and the Americans.
Our next offer to you may not be as generous.
Most sincerely yours,
Osama bin Laden

Letters to the Editor
Board should now exercise its authority
Our group, Floridians for Constitutional
Integrity, initiated legal action over a year
ago asking the courts to affirm the respon-
sibilities of the Florida Board of Governors,
which we believed were given to them in
November 2002 through the passage of
Amendment 11 to the Florida Constitution.
The circuit court of the Second Judicial
Circuit in and for Leon County has recently
issued two significant rulings. It ruled that
our group had legal standing to pursue such
actions something the Florida Board of
Education had contended otherwise. Most
significantly, the court accepted the results
of a mediation agreement that, in effect,
gave the Board of Governors all the respon-
sibilities we contended the constitutional
amendment afforded them.
Now what is obviously needed is for the
Board of Governors to exercise its authority
in a manner that is in the best interest of the
people of Florida.

Country remains free because of soldiers
It is disappointing to see that recent
Alligator editions have only included let-


ters about the war in Iraq that create more
conflict and arguments, but it refused to
acknowledge the recent "SOS: Support Our
Soldiers" event that united both opponents
and advocates of the war and raised over
$600 for the United Service Organizations.
It's also disappointing but shouldn't be
surprising that of all the recent letters,
not one gives thanks to American soldiers.
They serve, regardless of "adequate com-
pensation" or the lack of "proper armor,"
while you argue semantics and make ex-
cuses. How typical and predictable to use
the freedoms our soldiers provide you with
to defame or, even worse, ignore them and
their sacrifices.-However, that is your right.
This is, as they say, a free country. I just wish
more people would remember why.

UF should not neglect public to be Top 10
Why is. the Alligator so eager to stop
students from going to college? I support re-
forms, not reductions, of the Bright Futures
Scholarships program. While 75-percent
tuition coverage for a 2.75 GPA might be too
much, students with such GPAs still deserve
some kind of funding for their education.
Instead, other aspects such as major, course

load and test scores might allow for more
flexible scholarships. In majors like engi-
neering and biology maintaining a 3.0 is a
challenge in itself.
Furthermore, students in danger of los-
ing scholarships might opt to take easier
classes simply to inflate their GPAs. UF's
future, success depends on keeping Bright
Futures around to make tuition affordable.
We cannot forget that free money keeps
many smart students in the state. Just be-
cause some students are struggling does not
mean they do not deserve the privilege of
higher education. In our quest to be the best,
we should not neglect our roots as a state

Cutting Bright Futures would be selfish
As someone who only recently started

in order to fund a single state university's
ambitions, it is the quintessential definition
of smugness. While the goal of becoming a
Top 10 school, on the face of it, is a cause I
think we all can support, the overarching
attitude that has come out of this quest is an
unquestionable mix of selfishness and moral
superiority.
The Florida public university system
and Bright Futures exist for the reason of
providing a quality education at a price
that allows those who could not otherwise
attend college to go. Notice nothing in that
goal includes bashing the SAT scores of
students who go to other universities or in-
directly implying that those who could not
muster the score to get accepted to UF are
not worthy of actually mattering. The aver-
age UF faculty member makes $15,000 more
a year compared to their counterparts in the
rest of the state.
This is riot to say Florida does not need
a great public university. We surely do. We
should work to make the Top 10. However,
we as a university do not, and should not,
set the priorities for a state that has a goal of
producing an educated populous, not just a
highly educated few at the expense of the 85
percent of undergrads in Florida who do not
attend UF

UF civil engineers triumph in regional conference


* THE UF.CHAPTER PLACED
FIRST OVERALL AND FIFTH
IN THE CANOE COMPETITION.

By JESSICA DUCHENE,
Alligator Contributing Writer

The UF chapter of the American
Society of Civil Engineers proved
its concrete canoe was not the
only thing that was "Gatorstrong"
during this weekend's 2006 ASCE
Southeastern Regional Conference.
The UF chapter of the ASCE
placed fifth overall in the Concrete
Canoe Competition and placed first
overall in the Southeastern Regional
Conference, which includes several
competitions. The chapter's canoe
was named "Gatorstrong."
"UF and our ASCE chapter was
'Gatorstrong' because we are so
hardcore," said Thomas Sputo, UF
faculty advisor and civil and coastal
engineering professor. "We have a
team that works really hard and re-
ally well together, and the name of
the canoe reflects that."
The University of Alabama in
Huntsville received first in the
Concrete Canoe Competition.
Michael Burs, concrete canoe
captain and project manager, said
he was proud of the UF team's
hard work and performance at the
competition, which took place over
three days.


UF's John Weaver, Jessica Mackey, Nicole S. Walker and Reuben Franklin row in their boat, named "Ga-
torstrong," after placing fifth overall at the Concrete Canoe Competition on Friday at Lake Wauburg.


"Even though we didn't come
home with the first-place trophy,
the team has a lot to be proud of,"
Burns said. "I'm proud of what the
canoe looked like, how dedicated
we were, all the hours we worked,
and what we accomplished."
The competition began with the
display of the canoes in the Stephen


C. O'Connell Center on Thursday.
"Our canoe caused a lot of com-
motion at the displays," Burs said.
"Other schools were taking pictures
and asking us how we made ours.
It was nice to get such positive
feedback."
The second part of the competi-
tion took place at Lake Wauburg on


Friday. Each school competed in a
series of five different races testing
the paddlers' endurance and speed.
UF placed second in the canoe races
overall Friday.
Frank and Diane Burns, Michael
Burns' parents, traveled from their
home in Leesburg to cheer on UF
at the races Friday. Diane Burns


said civil engineers are the unap-
preciated heroes and structure of
our nation.
"We are very proud of Michael,
the University of Florida and their
ASCE team," Frank Burs said.
The competition concluded with
a presentation to the ASCE judges,
which explained the designing and
building process of the canoe.
The canoe performed well but
had its hardships, Burs said.
During the competition, the canoe
must past the "dunk test," which
submerges the canoe underwater
and tests whether it can float to the
surface on its own.
"Ultimately we made it strong,
but too strong," Burs said. "It
didn't sink, but it needed the help
of extra flotation."
While UF did not pass the
"dunk test," other schools also
had a hard time staying afloat. The
University of Tennessee was disap-
pointed when its canoe fell apart in
the water.
The ASCE Conference consists of
two main competitions, which are
the Concrete Canoe Competition
and the Steel Bridge Competition.
Both of these competitions have
National Competitions, which UF
hopes to make next year.
"We could have been competi-
tive this year at Nationals," Burns
said. "Next year, we will be un-
stoppable."

UF to rock out for research


By JOANNA BLAZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

A pre-health society and the catchy
sounds of four Gainesville rock bands are
coming together tonight for the second an-
nual Gainesville Rockathon.
Alpha Epsilon Delta will hold a benefit
concert at the Sidebar at 9 p.m. Tickets are
$5 at the door or in advance and all pro-
ceeds go to St. Jude Children's Research
Hospital.
"St. Jude is the only pediatric research
center where families never have to pay
more than their insurance covers," said
Reshelle Smith, a pre-med student and
AED member who helped organize the
Rockathon. "[Their] budget is obtained en-
tirely from fundraising efforts like ours."


Last year's Rockathon raised over
$1,000. This year's goal is $1,500. There are
a few extra incentives for the audience to-
night besides helping out a good cause.
"We threw in some shirts and CDs," said
Jamie Armstrong, the vocalist and guitarist
of the untimely death of..., one of the bands
who volunteered its time to perform. "There
will be raffles with shirts, CDs, door prizes
and gift certificates in between sets."
The lineup tonight is The Patrick
McDuffy AllStars, .. .and this is my odyssey,
The Scott Effman Band, and the untimely
death of...
"We as college students have a good
life," AED president Payaal Bhakta said.
"We're not really rich, but donating an hour
of our lives to help others really pays off in
the long run."


Gators win leads to alcohol-induced celebration across University Avenue


BARS, from page 1


of orange and blue near The Swamp
Restaurant.
As TV crews captured the action on
camera, Gators fans shrieked and slurred
their way through a series of sports chants
while a bevy of police officers kept close
watch over the mayhem.
Inside The Swamp, meanwhile, loyal
Gators fans were just as rowdy:
"It's been wild," said Lauren DeFilippo,
a Swamp employee. "Right when the
Gators won, everybody went crazy."
While Gators chants reverberated
through the restaurant's interior, UF junior


Ivan Ceballos watched the game from the
restaurant's relatively calmer front porch.
"I guess this is kind of the watering hole
for students when there's a big event,"
he said. "No place I'd rather be than
Swamp."
After the win, Fat Joe's party anthem
"Lean Back" blared through the restau-
rant's speakers, as Croakies-wearing
Gators fans managed to grind to the beat
while avoiding any massive beer spillage.
Ashley Miller, another Swamp hostess,
said she was pleased with the evening's
atmosphere.
"Because it's such a far away game,
there's not a lot of rivals here," she said,
clutching an empty pitcher as she weaved
through crowds.


"It's been wild. Right when the
Gators won, everybody went
crazy."
Lauren De Filippo
Swamp employee

"Everyone's pretty much all Gators, so
there haven't been any fights yet."
By 2 a.m. exhausted employees were
finally shutting down their establishments
for the night, but that did little to faze the
drunken masses intent on further celebra-
tion.
"I've been drinking since 12 in the af-
ternoon," said Nate Nault, a psychology
student in search of a late-night pizza fix.


"You know we're the Gators. We have
many leather-bound books and our apart-
ments smell of sweet mahogany."
Other students stumbled down
University Avenue singing praise for the
team's players.
"These five players create such sweet
action," said UF student Matt Simmons,
who lingered along University Avenue
with friends. "It's like "soy sauce on rice."
Even non-UF students were excited to
get a taste of the action.
"We're just partying it up because we
can," said Richard LeBlanc, a University of
North Florida student visiting Gainesville
with friends. "We took advantage of the
Gators winning. If they lost, it would not
be as fun as it is right now."

FINAL FOUR

Gators look to counter Bruins' daunting defense


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

INDIANAPOLIS They're two of the
most high-profile schools in the country,
two that hail from warm-weather locales
and two that consistently finish in the top
10 of the all-sports Director's Cup stand-
ings.
Yet, UF and UCLA have never met on
the basketball court.
They picked a good time to get to-
gether.
When the ball is tipped off at 9:21 to-


night, the national title, which would be
the Gators' first and the Bruins' 12th, hangs
in the balance.
"I think the first thing you realize is how
long of a time it is from [Saturday's] game
all the way to Monday night," UF coach
Billy Donovan said. "It's a long time. Feels
like a week."
The opponent Donovan's Gators will
face tonight spent its entire season as a
top-25 team. The Bruins won the Pacific-10
regular season and tournament champion-
ship and earned a No. 2 seed in the NCAA
Tournament. Still, they didn't garner much
attention, even as they advanced to the


Final Four.
So just who are these guys?
Even if you ask the Gators, they can't
come to a consensus.
"UCLA is a little bit
like Arkansas," junior
'... ,-. forward Chris Richard
said. "They have a strong
frontcourt, but they also
have fast guards who can
Donovan shoot the three and pen-
etrate down the lane."
Ask Al Horford.
"UCLA plays defense like Georgia,"
Horford said. "They are a -scrappy and


physical team who is very athletic. They
are a big-time defensive team."
Or ask Corey Brewer.
"Defensively, I think South Carolina is
a very good comparison," Brewer said.
"But you really can't compare this team to
anybody."
What is definitive is that the Bruins
have been a defensive force, allowing op-
ponents to score just 58.3 points per game
this season.
In particular, they have dominated their
last two games, allowing 45 points apiece to

UF rings in midnight


for Cinderella stories
INDIANAPOLIS
J oakim Noah despises pregame coverage.
After a win, UF's star center embraces the paperboy
with open arms, put Noah can't stand all the analysis
,ading up to a game.
"It's all opinion," Noah said. "I want facts."
Well, here's a fact that Noah relishes. The Gators are
heading to the national championship game after defeating
George Mason, the world's favorite Cinderella team.
And there's a word Noah wouldn't mind hearing the
"- rest of his life. It's a safe bet he'll never watch the Disney
classic again.
"We were tired of hearing the
~ Cinderella story," he said.
Noah studies social/behavioral
S sciences, not journalism, but after
Saturday's victory, he was already
bracing for Monday's Alligator and
anticipating the Cinderella headlines.
Andrew So Noah decided to give us jour-
Abramson nalists a helping hand and write his
Drew's Control own headline.
aabramson@alligator.org Never mind the space issues edi-
tors have to deal with or the fact that
Noah's topper was awfully long and
didn't exactly make sense.
So if the headline didn't make it to the top of this story,
I promised Noah he could have his one shot at journalistic
glory. Here's the Joakim Noah headline special:
"Gator boys are hot, unstoppable. Team shines regard-
less, sexy."
Then he wrote another headline, just in case the paper
featured more than one UF story.
"Don't get scared now. It's like 'Home Alone.'"
After becoming the nation's most hated team, the Gators
are anything but scared heading into tonight's title game

Cameroon connects Noah, UCLA

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer
dtreat@alligator.org

INDIANAPOLIS Zacharie
Noah might not know what to do. 7, :
On one hand, his grandson, I o
Joakim Noah, is about to play in
the biggest game of his life with a ,
national championship on the line.
On the other,
S two kids who
used to play ball
in his backyard are
Basketball trying to stop his X IN
grandson. ..
But that's what it has come down
to: UF, UCLA, the national cham-
pionship and for whom Zacharie
Noah is going to sacrifice a chicken.
Zacharie, made famous in U.S.
by Noah's declaration that he was
going to sacrifice chickens on the A
Gators' behalf, was a soccer star in
his native Cameroon long before
his son, Yannick, won the French t
Open and before his grandson be-
came the main event at the NCAA
Tournament.
Zacharie maintains a ranch
and recreation center in Yaounde,
Cameroon's capital, and two UCLA
players; freshmen Luc Richard
Mbah a Moute and Alfred Aboya,
played there often as children.
"I know a lot..about his grandfa-
ther. His grandfather has a big ranch
back home with a basketball court
and a tennis court," Mbah a Moute
said. "When I was little, I used to
go there and play tennis and swim
because they have a swimming pool
and everything. Kristin Nichols/ Alligator Staff

son. He does a lot for the community so he'll
have us over there and give us advice."
Mbah a Moute and Aboya may have ended
up in the same place, but the road they trav-
eled to get to Los Angeles was quite different.
They crossed paths earlier in their lives but
did not hit it off until the fall of 2003 when they
practiced at the same gym.
Mbah a Moute, however, wasn't a typical
kid. He is a prince, and his father is chief of the
Bafia village.
"My role is just being a prince," Mbah a
Moute said. "I don't have anything to do, just
a few ceremonies."
Each had contacts in the U.S., which led
them to prep schools in New Hampshire and
Montverde Academy in Florida.
"I didn't try skiing, but I did have a
snow fight," Aboya said of his time in New
Hampshire.
While Mbah a Moute eventually chose the
Bruins over Virginia Tech and South Carolina,
he did show interest in playing at UF.
The Gators reciprocated the curiosity.
"They recruited me. Matter of fact, even
though I committed to UCLA, they were still
recruiting me," Mbah a Moute said. "I was in-
terested in going to Florida, I liked the school.
I went there to visit a couple times."
But in the end, UF never offered a scholar-
ship.


It could probably be considered remark-
able that a country like Cameroon would have
this many players in a game this significant. -
Aboya said basketball ranks fourth in
popularity there behind soccer, volleyball and
team handball in his homeland, but he chose
the sport largely because of its sharp contrast
to soccer.

"I was interested in going to Flori-
da, I lilk"d the school. I went there
to visit a couple times."
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute
UCLA forward


"I think it's the concept of the game," Aboya
said. "Soccer is 90 minutes, and the score is
always like 1-0, low scoring. Basketball, any-
thing can happen at any moment.
"Even though you're leading by 20, you
have to wait until the clock goes off until
you start celebrating. You saw what hap-
pened when we played Gonzaga, so that's
what makes basketball different."
Although Aboya and Mbah a Moute
are just freshmen, both players have had a
significant impact on UCLA's march to the
title game.
Mbah a Moute was named Pacific-10
Freshman of the Year while averaging 9.2
points and 8.1 rebounds a game and started
all but one.
Aboya missed the first six games of the


year after having knee surgery, but played
in all 31 games since his return.
But his opponents' ties to one of his na-
tive nations doesn't mean that Noah is going
to be sympathetic.
"I have a lot of love for people from
Cameroon, especially guys that are playing
basketball and doing well," Noah said. "I
know [UCLA] has a couple of guys from
Cameroon on its team.
"After the game we will probably talk,
but right now, they're the enemy. I'm not
really worried about showing [them] any
love."
But the Bruins have been getting love
from a student group who has fully em-
braced them.
Known as the Cameroon Crazies, a group
of UCLA students wear T-shirts with the
slogan and wave tiny Cameroonian flags
during the game.
One woman had a full-sized flag draped
like a cape over her shoulders during
UCLA's semifinal win against Louisiana
State on Saturday.
"My brother was a grad student at Duke,
and he gave me a Cameron Crazies shirt,
so I thought I'd twist it up a little bit," said
David Woo, who founded the group.
Woo was also aware of Noah's history.
"He's half-Cameroonian I think," Woo
said. "We love Cameroonians. We love his
dad. We just love Cameroonians, baby."
UCLA's pair of Cameroonians have
signed shirts for the group and met with


members after games, and both were excited
to have so much support.
"That's unbelievable. It's such a great
feeling where you are in a place where you
have no support [like Indianapolis]," Aboya
said. "The only thing you have is those fans,
your coaches and your teammates, so it's
a good thing to see those people out there
cheering for you, rooting for you.
"That only makes you go forward and
keep working hard to please them."

ANDREW, from page 16

against UCLA.
If they can win wearing devil
horns, imagine the possibilities
when a few outsiders jump on the
bandwagon.
With almost the entire country
rooting against them on Saturday,
the Gators celebrated Daylight
Savings Time a few hours early,
turning the clocks to midnight as
the game clock ticked to zero.
Cinderella's moment in the


spotlight lasted much longer than
any sane person could have pre-
dicted, but the clock had to strike
midnight sooner or later.
Sure, stranger things have
happened, like the big bang and
Arnold Schwarznegger's political
career. But George Mason was
going to fall before this tourna-
ment ended, and the Gators were
fortunate enough to become the
villain.
"It feels good to be the bad guy
sometimes," Noah said.
Just like that, UF is one game
away from the ultimate prize.


And the Gators earned a trip to
the championship game without
any of the final-second hero-
ics that normally define March
Madness.
All they had to do was play
their game, throw the rock to
Lee Humphrey and watch Noah
pound his chest.
For George Mason, the stun-
ning run ended without a hint
of the magic that propelled the
Patriots into the Final Four.
That's how stories like this
usually end. The little team that
could fall eventually falls hard,


while some big, bad team from
a major conference plays for the
title.
So much for George Mason's
Hollywood production. The
Gators wanted no part in that
film anyway.
"We didn't want for them
to have that exceptional story
- 'Glory Road,' all that stuff,"
junior forward Chris Richard
said. "We don't want to be the
team in the movie that got beat,
that got upset. We didn't want to
be that team."
With George Mason out, the


national media quickly asked
the Gators about their own
Cinderella story that suddenly
has been revived.
Remember, this is a UF team
that entered the season with
minimal expectations.
A bubble team maybe. Never
a championship team.
But after a week of the neXer-
ending George Mason story-
lines, the Gators are simply sick
of Cinderella.
"I don't think we're
Cinderella," Richard said.
"We're kind of like Superman."

UCLA's Farmar plays


amid family worries


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer

INDIANAPOLIS This was
supposed to be the story of Jordan
Fafnar and how he almost came
to the Final Four draped in a UF
jersey rather than UCLA's.
Yes, it is that. But, more im-
portantly, this is about Farmar
and his maternal grandfather, Dr.
Howard Baker, who is afflicted
with cancer.
The news seeped from UCLA
coach Ben Howland's mouth
Sunday. One or two of his play-
ers knew about it. Most of them
hadn't a clue.
That's
S m"p- the first time
I've heard
that," said the
Bruins' star
guard Arron
Afflalo with a heavy, puzzled look
on his face.
When freshman Nican
Robinson was told, he jumped in
his chair.
"Cancer? Damn. Wow. I didn't
even know that," Robinson said.
"We're definitely going to have to
talk to him. We'll have to give him
some hugs and just rally around
him."
Baker, 67, will watch tonight's
national championship game
from Los Angeles, where Farmar's
mother, Mindy Kolani, will be his
caretaker.
"He's fighting, and he's a tough
guy and that's where I get it from
on the court sometimes," Farmar
said. "I'm not worried about it.
I know he'd love to be here, but
they're very supportive."
The gravity and the nature of
the cancer remain unknown, as
Farmar and Howland are leery of
the sensitive issue.

But the player who is arguably
most responsible for the revival of
Bruins basketball said his grand-
father is OK.
He continues to be the ultimate
family man, talking regularly to
his mother and grandfather.
On Farmar's left shoulder you
will see a tattoo of him and his 11-
year-old sister, Shoshana Kolani.
Both stand there, backs turned,
embracing each other. The words
"Just the two of us," glow above
the siblings.
Farmar's mother and his fa-
ther, Damon Farmar, attend most
UCLA home games. The same
goes for Baker, who attended
UCLA and began working at the
UCLA Medical Center in 1964.
"[Farmar] was connected at
birth to UCLA," Howland said.
UF coach Billy Donovan did
everything possible to change
that. Though Farmar was born
in Los Angeles and attended high
school in the area at Taft High,
Donovan went on a recruiting
crusade, hoping for a cross-coun-
try transplant.
"I was very close to going to
Florida," Farmar said. "I liked
everything about the program.
Especially with him being a point
guard, Coach Donovan really
treated me well.
"Everything about Florida was
positive, and when I came home
from my visit it was really good."
After all, who wouldn't want
Farmar? The godson of former
MLB star Eric Davis, he is a point
guard who actually embraces the
phrase "pass first."
With his poofy tuft of opaque
hair bobbing around the court, he
averages 5.1 assists and 13.3 points
per game as a sophomore. He
emulates Michael Jordan not for
his fadeaways or unfurled tongue
but for his defense. And Farmar


has redefined the term "grit."
He sprained his right ankle
against Temple in mid-November
and re-aggravated it against
Arizona in January. The player
with the balloon-sized heart and
tendons of rubber returned to the
court against the Wildcats.
Donovan could identify these
traits right away. So, with former
guard Anthony Roberson serving
as the guide, the UF coach put on
a recruiting full-court press.
"They had the huge video
board there or whatever it's called
- I think this was the last year
you were allowed to do this -
and they did an incredible thing
on that, [displaying the words]


'JORDAN FARMAR,'" Howland
recalled. "I mean, when you come
and see that, especially as a 16-
year-old kid, that was very, very
exciting."
At the same time, Howland
said, "I was sick to my gut from
that whole thing."
He had just replaced Steve
Lavin as head coach and was
doing his best to convince high
schoolers the program was mak-
ing a comeback.
Howland visited Farmar at
.Taft the first day he was allowed
to. But even on the morning of
the day Farmar decided he would
stay put, Donovan called the se-
nior about 10 times.

That was a time when the
Gators were also courting point
guard Taurean Green. Had
Farmar decided to sign with the
Gators, "I probably wouldn't be
here," Green said.
Joked Donovan: "[Farmar]
made a real poor decision, didn't
he?"
Instead, Farmar will wear
sky blue and gold, squaring off
against the very team that nearly
nabbed him.
He will strap the state of
California to his back tonight,
dreaming of home games next
season when Baker will be there,
recovered, and ready to watch
some old-fashioned defense.

Humphrey improves shots after meeting hero


* THE UF GUARD MET HIS
CHILDHOOD IDOL, FORMER
VOLS QB MANNING.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

INDIANAPOLIS UF, here's
what you can do now that you've
made the NCAA Championship
game: Call Peyton Manning and
thank him profusely.
Saturday night, it was UF guard
Lee Humphrey drilling threes and
saving the Gators time and time
again. This was no coincidence.
Humphrey met Manning, his
childhood hero, at a team banquet
Thursday night. Manning, the
Indianapolis Colts star quarterback
and former Tennessee player, didn't
say much to Humphrey. But a hand-
shake and a case of the jitters just
may have given the guard the spark
behind the game of his life against
George Mason. The Gators (32-6)
won 73-58 and will play UCLA in
tonight's national championship
game.
"I don't know how much that
translated into the game today,"
Humphrey said with a sheepish
grin. "I mean, I was very excited [to
meet him], but my teammates just
did a great job of finding me today,
and I shot it great."
Humphrey nailed 6 of 12 three-
pointers for 19 points against the
Patriots. But it wasn't the numbers


themselves that made the difference.
it was their timing.
Humphrey scored LIF's first
points, giving the Gators their first
lead at 3-2, a lead they would never
relinquish. Then, at the start of the
second half with UF leading by just
5, he took over.
"Humpty Dump is a
monster."
Joakim Noah
UF center

Humphrey scored 10 consecu-
tive points on three 3-pointers and
a free throw to start the second
period. When the floodgates dosed,
the scoreboard read: UF 41, George
Mason 28.
"Humpty Dump is a monster,"
UF forward Joakim Noah said.
This wasn't supposed to be
Humphrey's night. Al Horford
- maybe. Noah probably. But
nobody saw this coming. With
George Mason's tallest players
leveling at 6-foot-7, the game was
UF's frontcourt's for the taking. Yes,
the Gators dominated the glass. But
Humphrey and the backcourt, in-
cluding 15 points from point guard
Taurean Green, led the charge.
"If Peyton saw it, he has to
be proud of him," forward Chris
Richard said. "I don't know if there's
any sort of inspiration from meeting
him, but Lee played great. It was one
of the best games I've ever seen him
play."


For Gator Nation, this might ap-
pear like a sacrilege of gargantuan
proportions. A UF basketball player
idolizing the arm behind one of
the team's grandest football rivals?
But you must understand that
Humphrey grew up in Maryville,
Tenn., a city just 16 miles from
Knoxville, home of the Volunteers.
When he was in the fifth grade,


Brittany Fulmer, the daughter of
Tennessee football coach Phillip
Fulmer, put the biggest smile on
Humphrey's face. Humphrey's
classmate obliged when he asked
her to bring back his Manning jersey
autographed. The jersey still hangs
on Humphrey's wall.
And now that UF has nearly.
reached their -own Rocky Top,


Humphrey will never forget the
night he met Manning.
"My heart was pounding fast
whenI walked onstage," Humplrey
said. "I think I had the happy feet. I
was shaking a little bit."
Added Green: "I saw Humphrey
walking off the stage and I saw him
whisper, 'Wow.' So we definitely
gave him a hard time."

on Saturday. Humphrey made six 3-pointers in the game.


Bruins welcome fast pace


HOOPS, from page 16

No. 1 seed Memphis and fourth-
seeded Louisiana State.
LSU shot 32 percent for the
game while its leading scorer,
Glen Davis, was 5 for 17 from
the floor.
In UCLA's win against
Memphis, the Tigers shot 31.5.
percent, and leading scorers
Rodney Carney and Darius
Washington combined to make
6 of 22 shots.'
So while the wins may not
have been pretty, the Bruins re-
ally don't care.
"Basically it's substance over
style," senior Cedric Bozeman
said. "All we care about is the
'W.' We pride ourselves on de-
fense.
"If defense is going to win
games, that's what we're going
to do."
During Sunday's press con-
ference, however, UCLA coach
Ben Howland changed the topic
during one of his answers to ad-
dress the assertion that his team
plays at a more deliberate pace.
"We were really doing a good
job pushing the ball last night,"


Howland said. "I think you no-
ticed there were actually a cou-
ple times that Big Baby [Davis]
called a timeout because of the
changing ends and the pace of
the game."
Howland also said that
adaptability will be crucial for
his team tonight.

"They're going to try to
press us; they're going
to try to create a tempo
that's up and down. That's
great. We scored 86 points
against Arizona at home.
We can play any way you
want to play."
Ben Howland
UCLA coach


"We're going to have to do
that [Monday] because Florida
wants to get up and down,"
Howland said. "They're going
to try to press us; they're going
to try to create a tempo that's
up and down. That's great. We
scored 86 points against Arizona
at home.
"We can play any way you
want to play."


Foley reveres UCLA program


* HOWLAND, BRUINS
COACH, RECRUITED
NOAH IN HIGH SCHOOL.

By ANDREW ABRAMSON-
and DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writers

INDIANAPOLIS When
UCLA takes the court against
UF in tonight's national cham-
pionship game, UF athletics
director Jeremy Foley will be
taken back.
Admittedly, Foley was a
fervent Bruins fan, watching
teams led by Bill Walton and
Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul-
Jabbar).
But he said one of his favorite
UCLA rosters didn't feature any
big names when Sidney Wicks
and Curtis Roe led the Bruins to
a national title in 1970.
Foley considers it a privi-
lege for the Gators to face the
Bruins tonight.
"I can remember being on a
lacrosse trip in 1974, and N.C.
State beat UCLA in the semifi-
nal game. I was disappointed
because I loved watching
UCLA play," Foley said. "For
me personally, it's an honpr to
play those folks.
"If we can be successful
Monday night against a team
that certainly is the epitome of
tradition and success, it would
be wonderful."
Foley said one of the high-


lights of his career came sev-
eral years ago when former
UCLA coach John Wooden
visited Gainesville and spoke
to UF's coaches.
"For an hour, right in front
of our coaches and our staff,
one of the greatest coaches, if.
not the greatest coach of any
sport of all-time, [spoke],"
Foley said. "That has to be
chalked up as a highlight in
our profession. To sit there and
listen to that guy and listen to
him talk, it was unbelievable.
"That guy was unbeliev-
able. I'm
a big John
Wooden fan
and I do read
Shis stuff, and
that guy is
pretty spe-
cial."
Foley Fo 1 e y
said former
UF and current South Carolina
football coach Steve Spurrier
was also an avid Wooden fan.
Both Foley and Spurrier read
Wooden's books and were
especially impressed by one of
his quotes.
"He says failure is not fa-
'tal. Failure to change can be,"
Foley said. "My point is when
you lose, you have to self-
evaluate."

NOAH TIES: When UF sopho-
more center Joakim Noah
steps on the court tonight,


UCLA coach Ben Howland
will get a firsthand look at
the maturation of a player he
scouted in high school.
Howland, then coach of
Pittsburgh, visited Noah when
he was a high. school player at
Brooklyn's Poly Prep.
"Coach Howland was the
first person to ever recruit me
[in] my sophomore year when
he was still at Pitt," Noah said.
"He didn't offer me a scholar-
ship or anything, but I remem-
ber him being in the office and
saying that one day he would
recruit me. It's crazy, right?
Now we're playing him in the
championship."

BREWER'S DAD ABSENT: While
sophomore forward Corey
Brewer scored 19 points,
pulled down six rebounds
and hit three 3-pointers in the
Gators' win against George
Mason, his biggest fan wasn't
there to cheer him on.
Ellis Brewer was unable to
make the trip due to his ail-
ing health, and Corey doesn't
expect him to be in the RCA
Dome for the title game to-
night.
"I talked to him on the
phone [Saturday] after the
game," Brewer said. "He
has heart problems and dia-
betes, so he can't travel like
he'd want to. I think he'll:be
home watching like he always
does."

Florida: Joakiril Noah So., 6'11" 227 pounds, 14.1
ppg, 7.1 rpg
Even though Noah didn't have one of his prototypical games
Saturday night, fe still had 12 points, eight rebounds and blocked
four shots. Noah had been UFs standout player through the first
four rounds, and he could cement his status as the Tournament's
most explosive player with a big game tonight.
UCLA; Ryan Hollins Sr., 7'1/2" 225 pounds, 6.9 ppg,
4.6 rpg
Seemingly a physical mirror of Noah, Hollins has size but is
inconsistent in output. He scored in double digits in each of the
Bruins first four tournament games but only put up 6 against LSU on
Saturday. His 59.4 percent foul shooting also works against him.
AIlVANTAGE: FLORIDA


Florida: Lee Humphrey Jr., 6'2" 192 pounds, 10.8 ppg, .458 3PT%
With a meeting with his hero Peyton Manning in the books, Humphrey shot down George Mason Saturday, hitting
six threes, including three in a row to kickoff the second half. With UCLA likely to double team UPs big men, look
for Humphreyto get a lot of good looks.

UCLA: Arron Afflalo So., 6'5" 210 pounds, 16.0 ppg, 4.3 rpg
Afflalo is the most explosive player on the Bruins roster. He has started all but one game in his two years in
college. He cant shoot as well as Humphrey but is quicker. Humphrey's skills as UF's best perimeter defender will
be tested early and often in this showdown.

SFlorida: Taurean Green So., 6'0" 177 pounds, 13.6 ppg, 4.6
apg
Green hit several clutch threes and finished with 15 points against George
Mason but failed to record an assist for the first time this season. Tonight is
another big game and Green seems to thrive in these situations. But he
needs to make smart decisions with the ball and create easy buckets for his
teammates.

UCLA: Jordan Farmar So., 6'2" 180 pounds, 13.3 ppg, 4.9 apg
Farmar strongly considered becoming a Gator, but he has thrived playing in
Shis home state. He was the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year last season and
followed it up by being named All-Pac 10 first team this year. He doesn't
shoot great from beyond the arc but can score off the dribble and pass well.



IRTM6IBLES
So it all comes down to this: 11 titles against zero, 16 Final Four appearances
versus three. But as Noah said, history doesn't win basketball games, and this
should be a good one. UCLA has the ability to grind it out or play up-tempo, as
do the Gators. It is much easier to force a slower style on a game than a quick
one, so look for a matchup similar to the one between UF and Georgetown.
Both of these teams are on a roll, but at this point, it's unlikely that Noah will
allow the Gators to lose.
