The controversial five-year plan to get
UF's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences out
of a $4 million deficit is no longer in effect,
according to the college's interim dean.
In a telephone interview Tuesday, Dean
Joe Glover said the plan to balance the
budget is "off the table" while the college's
Faculty Finance Committee makes recom-
mendations on where the budget cuts
should come from.
The plan, which was announced in
September, called for budget and personnel

tone (from the administration),"

cuts in departments like English and religion
over the next five years.
After its release, some-faculty and stu-
dents criticized the administration for not
including their input and for unjustly cut-
ting from their departments.
UF and CLAS officials said from the
start that the plan was not concrete that
changes could be made, so long as the bot-
tom line was the same. But Glover's move to
pull the plan is a larger step toward finding
Though student group CLASUnite is
planning a walkout to protest not just the
plan but "general administrative incompe-

When Mo Rocca made plans to
speak to the Gator Nation, he did
some gator research.
He can tell you that more than one
million alligators live in the Florida
Everglades, that their average weight
is 800 pounds and that they could lead
to negotiations between the United
States and China -just a theory.

the event is billed, Rocca will perform

Although Rocca has an eclectic list
of TV experience, students may recog-

reporter on "The Daily Show with
John Stewart," or for his contributions
to VHl's "I Love the ..." series.
Although he is no stranger to per-
forming for an audience, Rocca has
one concern about his debut at UF.
"I don't know if I need to have my
own passport with me, but presum-
ably I would since the Gator Nation
is its own country," Rocca said in a
phone interview Friday.

23, was taken into custody by the
Haines City Police Department,
he was transferred to the Alachua
County Jail, said Gainesville Police
spokesman Keith Kameg.

said Phillips stayed the night at her
house after a party on Jan. 13.

Phillip's car, identifiable by the
words "Got Milk" written in two-

No arrests have been made in

rapes, and police are still searching
for suspects, Kameg said.

Granny's trek inspires tribute
By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer
When she was 89, Doris Granny D Haddock walked
from Pasadena, Calif., to Washington, D.C.
On Wednesday, proudly wearing yellow shirts and
bright smiles, a local women's rights group walked
10 miles through Gainesville's streets to celebrate
Haddock's 97th birthday.
The rights group, called The Friends of Susan B.
Anthony, organized the event because Granny D made
an impression on the group's members when she spoke
at one of their luncheons last year.
In 1999, Granny D started her 3,200-mile trek across
the country to promote campaign finance reform.
Walking 10 miles each day, it took her 13 months to
reach Washington, D.C.
Upon arrival, she was greeted by 2,200 citizens who
finished the last few miles with her.
Called "Granny D" for years by her family, Haddock
legally changed her name to Doris Granny D Haddock
in August 2004, when she was 94.
June Littler is the coordinator of The Friends of
Susan B. Anthony. She said Granny D's story moti-
vated her to get a group of people together and walk to
support campaign finance reform.
"Granny D put her time, money and effort into ring-
ing the alarm to wake everyone up," Littler said. "If she
could walk 3,200 miles for a year, for heaven sakes, I
should be able to walk 10 miles for just one day."
Granny D was so pleased to hear about the group's
birthday present to her, she let them borrow the flag
she carried during her journey.
The Friends of Susan B. Anthony started their trib-
ute trek at the Westside Recreation Center parking lot
at 10 a.m.
Throughout the walk, they displayed Granny D's
yellow flag, which had "Campaign Finance Reform"
embroidered on it.
"Granny D is a woman that we should all
aspire to be like."
member of The Friends of Susan B. Anthony
"Granny D called on Monday and said she wished
she could be here and that she is very proud of what we
are doing." Littler said.
Once The Friends of Susan B. Anthony reached the
Downtown Plaza, Vivian Filer, a member of The Friends
of Susan B. Anthony, read Granny D's favorite govern-
ment document: the Declaration of Independence.
Filer was also moved by Granny D's words at last
year's annual meeting.
"Granny D is a woman that we should all aspire
to be like. Being here on her birthday is like making a
personal connection with her." Filer said.

A Gainesville author is selling the movie rights to his book
to Warner Bros.
Rick Yancey, 44, the author of "The Extraordinary
Adventures of Alfred Kropp," spoke at the Alachua County
Library on Wednesday night to motivate
Around young readers and writers and to promote
Gainesville his Alfred Kropp series.
"The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred
Kropp" is about the life of its title character, a
15-year-old who is tricked into stealing King Arthur's legend-
ary sword and who accidentally becomes a hero.
Yancey described a scene in the novel, saying, "Alfred does
battle with six thugs with shotguns okay, so it's not Bambi.
What I wanted was to write a book that is like reading a movie
- you could totally get yourself lost in the story."
Yancey's film agent organized the proposal with Warner
Bros. and Akiva Goldsman, who will be the producer of the
film. Goldsman also produced "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" and wrote
the screenplay for "The Da Vinci Code."

UF's green efforts get C
By JESSICA DaSILVA
Though UF officials have been working
to make UF's campus more environmen-
tally friendly, the Sustainable Endowments
Institute said they haven't done.enough.
UF received a C in the institute's College

nearly 100 universities across North America
based on their sustainability initiatives.
Sustainability efforts include decreasing
energy consumption and constructing more
In the report card's seven categories, UF
received two F's, three C's and two A's.
"I don't know what to say about it," said
Dedee DeLongpre, director of UF's Office of

probably information they pulled off the
(UF) Web site," DeLongpre said.
She said she had never been contacted by
the group but was interested in contacting it
to give it more information about UF's sus-
But DeLongpre said she wouldn't spend
too much time worrying about the grade
since she doesn't know the criteria used to
compare schools or what schools were ana-
"Our school is very different from, say, a
small liberal arts college," she said. "(I want
to make sure they're) comparing apples to
apples and not papayas to pineapples."
"Our school is very different from;
say, a small liberal arts college."
UF Office of Sustainability director
According to its Web site, the institute
is a special project fund of the Rockefeller
Philanthropy Advisors that is "engaged in
research and education on the sustainability
of higher education endowments."
"I'm glad this institution is interested
in reporting on sustainability," DeLongpre
said. "We just need to make sure the infor-
mation is accurate and that we don't put as
much stock into (the current report) because
the information isn't entirely accurate."

dents tend to go, like Rue Bar or
Rehab, mounted officers wait at the
curb without breaking crowds.
Cineas showed dark pictures of
these incidents to the crowd of about
10 students who attended the forum.
She also played a low-volume record-
ing of a student claiming he was ar-

Pegeen Hanrahan, GPD delegates, the

student leaders from UF and SFCC.
But Hanrahan said she had not

during the forum.
David Huckstep, chief deputy of

Rocca reveals nerdy roots, unusual breakfast fare
ROCCA, from page 1
ing his debate meets. For Rocca, Harvard
was a good fit.
"1 was probably pretty nerdy, which
made me incredibly cool by Harvard
standards," Rocca said.
After college, Rocca made a few stops
outside the country before his rise as a
funny TV personality.
He went to Japan and studied Kabuki
theater, a style known for wild cos-
tumes and sword fights: When Rocca
rolled back into the United States and
his hometown in Bethesda, Md., (near
Washington, D.C.) he was on skates.
He worked and saved money as a
roller-skating waiter, and or so he says
- he said he never dropped a plate..
With some money in the bank, Rocca
hung up his skates and moved to New
York, his current residence, as an audi-
His first big break came in 1995, when
he became a writer and producer of
Wishbone, a children's series on PBS that
featured a Jack Russell terrier.
"How could I resist writing and pro-
ducing for a show about a dog who in
his dream life becomes the hero of classic
novels?" Rocca said.
Much like his beginning, the rest of
Rocca's career follows an often comical
Once, he held two jobs simultane-
ously, working as a producer and
writer for a preschool children's series on
Nickelodeon by day and an editor for the
men's magazine Perfect 10, by night.
Rocca is anything but predictable.
"I consider myself the Madon-
na of fake reporters. I like to
constantly reinvent myself."
"I'm sort of chameleonlike," Rocca
said. "I consider myself the Madonna of
fake reporters. I like to constantly rein-
In 2004, he released his book, "All
the Presidents' Pets: The Story of One
Reporter Who Refused to Roll Over,"
a political satire that jibes White House
Rocca used his mental collection
of facts and his visits to homes and
gravesites of former presidents to make a
statement about White House reporters.
"The reporters covering the White
House were much more like furry little
pets than anyone expected," Rocca said.
Despite his knowledge of presidential
pets, Rocca has no animals of his own.
"I don't really like pets," Rocca said.
"I just write about them."
On his free days, Rocca stresses about
his next career move, works out three
days a week with his personal trainer
and eats healthy (for breakfast, Rocca
eats a mixture of oatmeal, cottage cheese
and applesauce his own concoction
that he swears is healthy).
Much like Rocca's lively personal-
ity and keen sense of humor, his speech,
complete with a PowerPoint presenta-
tion, is expected to be somewhat different
than the norm.
"It will be very lively and a little bit
different than the other speeches we've
had in the past," said Jessica Clarke,
Accent's vice chair of promotions.
Accent paid Rocca $25,000, a sum
that includes airfare, meals, hotel and the

tions for speaking at UE.

Five graduate students met with Glover on

Bret Seferian, co-

encouraged by the meeting because Glover told
the group the plan is no longer being followed.
There is still a lack of trust between students

of smoking ban in place and the reason they're effective is
because they are enforced. So what's the point of this new rule?
Its kind of like when the Student Senate passes a resolution
congratulating someone or other for doing something it's
purely symbolic and absolutely pointless.
Here at the Alligator, we really don't have a problem with
smokers..We might not all enjoy a "cloud of smoke" in our faces,
as committee Chairman Bill Properzio put it, but we can deal
with it and we suspect just about everyone else can too. It
certainly doesn't keep us from going to bars, clubs and parties.
But it's kind of hard to find a place on campus 50 feet away
from a building, especially academic and administrative ones.
Maybe what UF should really do is declare a smoking sec-
tion you know, corral all those dreaded smokers into some
remote area of campus that nonsmokers will never have to walk
through. We could even make them take a bus there.
But seriously. UF can enact all the policies in the world de-
crying smoking, but if they aren't enforced, nothing will ever
change. UF should focus more on changing student smoking
habits and help smokers kick their habit. The Quit Smoking
class, beginning Feb. 8, is a great start. UF could also supply free
nicotine patches to students, just like it supplies free condoms.
Helping us change ourselves would be a lot more effective
than telling us what to do.
This week in review, in 500 words
Did you know that
a penny is worth
more than a cent?
Not as legal U.S. tender
of course, but if you melted
them down, you could re-
sell the metals zinc and
copper and turn a profit.
But don't break open
your piggy banks just yet
- the U.S. Mint has laws
against melting and export-
ing coins. However, they
are smart enough to real-
ize that even a law won't
prevent speculators from
hoarding their change.
A more sensible solu-
tion, as proposed by senior
economist Francois Velde
at the Chicago Federal
Reserve Bank, would be
to "rebase" the penny as a
five-cent piece a nickel,
in layman's terms and
phase pennies out of cir-
Even though they are
practically worthless, since
1982 the Mint has been
making more and more
-pennies. There are cur-
rently 8.23 billion pennies
in circulation more than
$9 for every American man,
woman and child.
We think the penny has
been useless for years. You
can't use them in soda ma-
chines, and they take up sb
much damn room in your
pockets. Many nations have
done away with one-cent
pieces now the United
States should too.

Only have the space to write one column per week,
and there are 100 columns' worth of debates taking
place in Gainesville, so I've decided on a three-for-
Let's begin with the no-brainer the debate over the
construction of the Spring Hills complex on Northwest
39th Avenue. Simply put, the shopping center is colossal,
with space for retail, industrial and office buildings, resi-
dential units and hotel rooms it's like something off of
Sim City that you could only get with a cheat code.
Alachua County residents don't want it in their back-
yards. The Coalition for Responsible Growth is already
protesting the mega-development. Arguments for the
complex claim that it will generate close to 5,000 jobs and
bring in tax revenue. But in reality, the jobs will be low-
paying retail jobs, and the tax revenue will be offset by
the demand for expansion of public services like new
schools and law enforcement that the development
Traffic, if it's possible to fit any more cars on the roads,
will increase to Los Angeles-freeway proportions.
From the very name Spring Hills, I can tell you it's
going to be cookie-cutter houses and chain stores. Why
can't we just save the space? We don't have to pump ev-
ery potential dollar out of every square inch of land.
But let's move on to David Reznik and his band of
halo-clad Sociology of Religion students rallying for a
student-run homeless shelter. Bravo. Getting the univer-
sity involved with the community, especially the home-
less community, is a necessary progressive step. But, re-
quiring students to visit it during Preview? Unnecessary.
Ignorant, even. As sociology students, they should know
that everyone's individual outlook on life is different.
Not every person who enters UF is a.Good Samaritan.
Some people aren't concerned about the homeless com-
munity. That's the way it is. Requiring people to be con-
cerned about something they're
not is a waste of time, effort and
money. It's like requiring an on-
line alcohol-awareness survey for
incoming freshmen. They're still
going to find out about Hunch
Todd Portnowitz Punch the hard-way.
Finally, there's the question of
Witz' Wits symbols and. their effectiveness.
lItters@alligator.org Last week. we saw a display of
186 hangers behind the Reitz
Union, representing 186 women
worldwide who die daily as a result of illegal abortions.
And this week we have the Writing on the Wall project,
where students literally erect and then "knock down
Chase McGee, in his guest column that appeared in
the Alligator on Tuesday, claimed that "Symbols only
represent they can't do anything." He went on to
brand the Writing on the Wall project as ineffective and
"empty." But by writing an article about how symbols
"can't do anything," he proved, de facto, that they raise
awareness his own awareness, in fact. Anyone who
writes about symbols is automatically branded a hypo-
crite because every word in our language is a symbol.
Though the image of hanger abortions and a wall of
blatant racial stereotypes aren't exactly pleasant sights to
see on the way to class that's the point. The reality that
these symbols represent isn't pleasant.
So to recap: Gainesville don't build that big waste
of space. Reznik and his apostles don't force people
to be concerned about something they aren't. Everyone

Health care plan will benefit millions
In Wednesday's editorial, "Dubyaspeak," I
believe Bush's proposed health care initiative
was misinterpreted. It's natural that you must
have health insurance to claim health insur-
ance coverage deductions on your taxes, just
like you must have a child to claim the Child
Tax Credit. And the poorest people won't ben-
efit from these proposed tax savings, because
they are already enrolled in government-spon-
sored health care programs like Medicaid and.
Medicare. This plan will help those who can't
afford personal health care coverage but don't
qualify for welfare programs. Economists pre-
dict this plan will enable at least five million
uninsured Americans to gain coverage.
U.S. doesn't really look after its citizens
I disagree with Elijah St. Germain's
Wednesday letter, "Democracy is best form
of government." Whether democracy exists
in the United States is debatable. We have few
choices in elections, and often those eligible to
vote don't. We have a constitution that defines
our rights as citizens, and that's it.
There is no substance to his statement that
"the United States looks after its citizens." If
that's so, then why is our health care system
dismal compared to other developed coun-
tries? Did it look after us in the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina? Does it look after our sol-
diers by wasting precious lives in wars?

Blaming men for rape not fair to most
Claire Beach's comments in Wednesday's
letter are consistent with a strain of blind
militarism that plagues the feminist cause. She
claimed, "All men benefit when a rape is not
investigated and a rapist goes unpunished."
This statement is irresponsible and hateful.
I helped a female friend through the af-
termath of a rape and I understand the evil
involved all good men do. We are just as
revolted and angry that something so horrible
could happen to the women we care about.
Every victim has a father, brother or friend
who feels that pain with her. Beach and her or-
ganization need to stop spouting their hatred
and intolerance of men and focus on helping
women in need.
Rape affects everyone, not just victims
Claire Beach's recent comments on rape
show a flaw in Campus NOW's perception
of rape. It's time to face the facts: The world is
not a safe place. With one in eight college-age
women being victims of rape, it is likely we
will all encounter a woman at UF who's been
raped. These victims are our friends, class-
mates and girlfriends. Rape affects not only
the victims and their relationships, but the
whole community. The idea that men stand to
benefit from unresolved rapes is outrageous.
It's this type of bombastic thinking that pre-
vents cooperation on such an important issue.
Senate shouldn't have denied resolution
Shame on the Student Senate for vot-
ing down a resolution commemorating the
life and contributions of George Smathers.
Although Smathers had some controversial
- and in retrospect, wrong policies, any-
one would be hard-pressed to say that he did
anything other than passionately serve this
state for many years not to mention make
significant contributions to our university.
George Smathers was a U.S. senator who
fought against communism. He was a friend
and adviser to many U.S. presidents and a
supporter of UE
Society commemorates many men and
women who have done great things despite
disagreement with some of their politics. Our
state trusted Smathers to represent us for 22
years. I believe the roomful of college students
that make up the Senate acted shamefully by
failing to commemorate one of our universi-
ty's most notable alumni. I hope in the future
they will see the forest through the trees and
commemorate UF's honorable supporters.
Coat hangers leave out other deaths
I'm writing in response to the "coat hang-
ers" article in Tuesday's Alligator. I think it's
silly to think we're going to be impressed with
186 deaths of women from illegal abortions
each day around the world while abortion kills
30 times more people 4,000 unborn children
- each day in the United States alone.
I can't help but wonder why the Alligator
showed a picture of 186 coat hangers on the
Reitz Union lawn but not a picture of 200,000

The Organic Debate
ASHLEY MILLS S l AVENUE WRITER
Greener may not equal better
Side by side, an organic cantaloupe and its conventionally pro-
duced counterpart don't seem any different. Both melons are
sweetly aromatic, and both bumpy exteriors give way to a vi-
brant, juicy center.
However. organic toods are, in fact dit-
terent They are produced w ith little or no
aid from pesticides, anbbiotics or tertlizers.
The\ also can cost more than three times
as much as a traditionally produced item.
At a local supermarket, a customer can buy
a dozen large eggs for $1 29 or splurge for a
dozen large organic eggs at $3 49.
For 'ome customers, the percei ed ben-
ehts of consurmng organic toods out-weigh
the extra costs. However. the idea that or-
ganic equals healthier is more a hunch than
a -cientifically proven tact. E\perts say that
eating orgaruc foods is actually no healthier.
M\ickie Swisher director ot the Center tfr
Orgaruc Agnculture at UF. said no endence
x--its to prove that organic foods are any
more nutnhtous than traditionally\ farmed
"There ha\ e been some studies that have
shown higher antio.idants or -ihatever, but
the problem is we, can t get trom there to a

challenging because these \anables are ditih-

Cinema at the Hipp celebrates 25th birthday
WILL AFFORD R AVENUE WRITER
Gainesville's haven for pro-
vocative pictures and far-out flicks
turned 25 years old this weekend.
The anniversary recalls the
beginnings, of cinema at the
Hippodrome Theatre for founders
Rocky Draud and Shirley Lasseter.
Draud, who is the general manager
at the Hippodrome, and Lasseter,
the cinema director, both volun-
teered as ushers and worked at the
bar during the theater's birth.
At the time, there was no place
where art films and alternative
cinema were shown.
"There was definitely a void,"
She said they bought the first
projector, a 16mm, at a garage
sale for $100 and rented four short
films, including a blustery Nixon
"Checkers" speech, from the
Alachua County Library District.
After a theater performance one
night, the staff of the Hippodrome,
which was then located in a tin-
roof warehouse; gathered together,
hung a sheet on the wall of the all-
purpose room and ran the films.
The small audience immediate-
ly embraced the films and decided
to arrange space for cinema when
the Hippodrome moved into the
former post office building it now
Shortly thereafter, Lasseter and
Draud drove down to Daytona in
Draud's 1966 Volkswagen van to
pick up a hand-me-down screen
from another theater. The screen
was so big they had to put it on the
van's canoe rack.
Part of the Hippodrome's suc-
cess and survival has been its fo-
cus on serving a niche audience.
"We like to offer something dif-
ferent for people who are looking
for something different," Lasseter
said. "You're not going to see
'There's Something About Mary'
at the Hippodrome."
This attitude fosters a loyal au-
dience that will wait for a film tobe
shown at the Hippodrome, even if
it is already playing at another lo-
cal movie house, Draud said.
An atmosphere of intimacy and
community pulls viewers in a way
mall theaters and multiplexes can-
not. A full-service bar doesn't hurt
"It's your own home theater;
it's your living room," Draud
The Hippodrome celebrated
its 25th birthday with a gourmet
potluck a "free screening of "Big
Night" on Sunday.
The familial ambience is the
frame for Lasseter to display her
carefully researched, hand-picked
"I'm hoping that we're still en-
ergizing people with the films we
bring in," she said. "We did that
that first night."

* Fear of rejection causes adoration of objects
In my 20 years as a male, I've seen an un-
fathomable amount of love, which should
belong to me and other guys, poured out
on babies, dogs and other objects incapable
0 of a thorough emotional response.
I think most guys would agree that ba-
bies and dogs are cute. But despite the ob-
viou. appeal of cute objects. I believe there
is j Freudian undertone to all this excessive
female dotng I present you my 'No reac-
tion-No reflection theory.
FLrst a disclainer Pardon any general-
Izaton this iL not a case-by-case study
but a broad theorN and therefore it will not
stand true for all.
It is common practice for the male to
approach the female in order to spark a
relationship. This beginning step is the
most difficult because there is so much at
risk what if she says, "No"? Or laughs
in my face? What if she says, "Yes," what
tbhp Hence the "Do you like me? Circle
o~i Yes, No, Maybe" notes in elementary,
middle and in some pathetic cases, even
SAt he same time, there is a thrill in
appjaching someone for the first time, a
bid rush, thfeeing of tense emotions
^ '''" ^/ ^ 4 f T/ ^ ^^ Z S'
- a human experience we all crave, male,
female and squirrel alike. So if men are do-
ing all the relationship initiation, how do
women relieve this emotional tension?
The answer: babies, puppies and inani-
Girls swoon over babies, drooling over
their drool. Girls can write doctoral theses
on how much they love the little paws and
snouts of puppies. And beyond that there
and TV stars like McDreamy.
The common trait here is that not one
of these things can give a thorough emo-
S0 0 0
tional response to the girl's advance. They
just drool, smile or wag their tail. Barring
a crying or barking fit, there is a very slim
chance of rejection involved. No reaction.
Who knows if this theory has any mer-
it? Circle one: Yes. No. Maybe. But in the
meantime, let go of the fear. Ninety percent
of the time, it's unfounded.

Sweet Dreams opens new location, hosts fundraiser
KELLY SEREIKAS ) AVENUE WRITER
Tom Rider apologized when he showed
Mike Manfredi of Sweet Dreams a prospective
location for an additional ice cream shop.
"It's cute, but not spiffy or corporate," said
Rider, the co-owner of Goerings Book Store.
"We're not that corporate either," Manfredi
Rider was touched by Manfredi's response,

shared by these two locally owned businesses

don't have good customer service, charming

as Sweet Dreams Homemade Ice Cream,

UF holds off late Mississippi State run

Mississippi State tried to white out the No. 1 UF

a 70-67 victory against the Bulldogs in Starkville in *

In the first of their two road games this week, the
Gators battled as the game yo-yoed with several ties
and lead changes.
"They're a very gifted, talented and athletic
group," UF coach Billy Donovan said about the
Bulldogs. "I thought their kids played really hard. It
was a real true road test. Give Mississippi State credit.
They did a great job fighting back."
UF, who led the nation in field-goal shooting at
54.7 percent heading into the game, put up a dismal
35 percent in the first half.
Mississippi State's Jamont Gordon started off
strong for the Bulldogs with some quick shots, but he
soon fizzled out and went 2 for 11 in the first half. He
led the team with 17 points and six rebounds.
"I think sometimes on the road it's not always go-

Home's return from injury spurs SFCC to OT win
By EVAN DREXLER
Gavin Home after sitting since Dec. 17
with a back injury stepped up in overtime,
scoring 5 points and blocking two key shots to
give Santa Fe Community College a 96-89 vic-
tory against Seminole Community College on
Though Home slowly trotted up and down
thetourt in the second half, he managed to
have a large impact ir the extra period for the
Saints (16-4,4-1 Mid-Florida Conference).
The sophomore forward finished the game
with 12 points.
SFCC coach Chris Mowry said doctors told
him Home would not injure his back further
"It's big to have him back and he's in a lot
of pain," Mowry said. "Having him back out
there, obviously, he is a very important part of
what we are."
Up by 1 with 1:35 left in overtime, Terrill
Humphrey hit a 3-pointer to extend the Saints'
lead to 4. Humphrey led the Saints with 23
points, including six 3-pointers.
After two Seminole free throws, a

"Those blocks were huge," said SFCC
guard Tracy Rankins, who scored 16-points, 14
of them coming on free throws. "Gavin really
But the game almost did not make it to
overtime. The Saints did not score a field goal
for the last 4:23 of regulation, and during that
drought Seminole made up a 10-point deficit.
After Rankins hit two free throws with 11
-seconds left to give the Saints a 3-point lead,
Seminole guard Freddie Williams drained
a well-contested 3-pointer to send the game
to overtime. Williams led Seminole with 35
points, including four threes. With the victory,
the Saints moved into a tie for first place in the
Mid-Florida Conference with Seminole.
SFCC, ranked No. 6 in the Florida
Community College Activities Association
Coaches Poll, has gone through one-third of
its conference schedule. Rankins was excited
about the win, but not satisfied.
"We're comfortable," Rankins said, "but
not too comfortable."
