Pants puts



out party



platform

By JOANNA BLAZ
Alligator Writer

Free condoms, better busing for students
and a restructured legislative branch in Student
Government are some of the items the Pants Party
included in its Spring election platform, which
was announced Sunday night.
The Gator Party, the only other party regis-
tered, has yet to finalize and release its platform.
The two parties are vying for control of SG,
which controls about $12 million in students'
.:money coming from the Activity
& Service Fee.


The elections will be Feb. 27
and 28.
Pants Party presidential
candidate Bruce Haupt led a
discussion on the platform with
the other candidates running for
executive positions and Senate


seats.
Party members voted on each platform issue.
by a hand raise.
Haupt said that some positions in the legisla-
tive branch are useless and that the branch needs
restructuring.
"A lot of positions don't do much," Haupt said.
"Many positions of Cabinet could be eliminated."
Haupt also proposed that free condoms be
made available at the front desks of on-campus
residence areas to make sure they are available to
students 24 hours a day.
"(This) could keep students safer," Haupt
said.
The party also agreed to try to optimize bus
routes available to students.
Pants's vice presidential candidate, Eve Rizzo,
said, "(Our) percentage of money should go to
routes students utilize."
Members agreed that they want more commu-
nication between the student body'and SG.
Haupt said the party would try to achieve that
through a public state of the union address to
students.
Haupt is also pushing for the SG presidential
debate, which is scheduled for Feb. 21, to be

No. 1 Gators silence Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. In 20-degree weather,
they came in blue body paint with the indi-
vidual letters of "Wildcats" spelled across their
bare chests.
They came with posters, waving signs like,
"Hey Noah, the ark is about to sink," and,
"Playing for Florida is so easy a caveman can
do it."
But all of the Kentucky fans' hooting and
hollering was done in vain as the No. 1 UF
men's basketball team (23-2, 10-0 Southeastern .. .
Conference) defeated No. 20 Kentucky (18-6, 7-3
SEC) 64-61 on Saturday night.
The Gators did it in front of a Rupp Arena
record-crowd of 24,465.
"It's a beautiful thing," forward Al Horford
said. "This is the second straight year we've
come up here and beaten them at home."
The game came down to the wire when
Horford had trouble inbounding the ball twice
to point guard Taurean Green. -,
Wildcats guard Ramel Bradley capitalized on
the errors and hit back-to-back 3-pointers within
6 seconds.
UF watched its lead shave from 7 points to 3
with 18 seconds left.
"We made some bad plays at the end, golly,"
forward Corey Brewer said. "Bradley hit some
clutch 3-pointers, though, and the whole team
didn't give up. I give them a lot of credit for
that."
Brewer, who led the team with 16 points and
seven rebounds, made four clutch free throws in
the final minute to seal the victory.
"When you're on the line, 24,000 people Kim Klement/ Alligator
you try to block them out," Brewer said. UF forward Al Horford screams after being fouled during the

The birds were cedar waxwings, and
UF officials are looking for a way to steer
them away from university windows.
In an e-mail to fine arts administra-
tors on Friday, architecture professor Kim

walls have this problem every year when
the waxwing migrates to Gainesville. Bird-
proofing buildings can be a project for her

Law talks focus on music
Technological innovations are
today's global cultural currency,
said the keynote speaker at the
fifth annual Music Law Confer-
ence held Saturday at the Levin
College of Law.
James Oliverio, a UF profes-
sor of music and digital media,
spoke to a group of students and
musicians about the ever-chang-
ing world of technology and how
it affects artists, lawyers and con-
sumers.
In his PowerPoint presentation,
Oliverio illustrated the major tech-
nological advances that have oc-
curred in the 20th century and how
society has evolved "beyond the
CD" and into experiential media.
In addition to Oliverio's pre-
sentation, five panel discussions
examined various aspects of the
music industry and how they re-
late to law.
Paul Sirmons, the state's film
and entertainment commissioner,
spoke about the need for increased
funding for the state's independent
filmmakers.
Currently, independent produc-
tions that are filmed in the state by

residents can receive a 15 percent
reimbursement on qualified costs
of at least $850,000. Sirmons is
campaigning to lower the mini-
mum to make it easier for film-
makers to receive funding.
He also said the state has
the third-highest number .of
film schools in the country. But
despite the large number, film-
makers are still leaving the state
to pursue endeavors in more lu-
crative environments, he said.
Brian Frankel, a third-year UF
law student and the executive
director of the event, said the
conference provided a way for
students to get a better under-
standing of their future careers.
He added that the conference
is a good opportunity for stu-
dents to network.
"This is a great way to socially
connect," Frankel said. "Here is a
great place to get feedback."
Michael Singer has attended
the event for three years in a
row. She sees the conference as
a chance to talk to interesting
people who are passionate about
music and music law.
"I get insight into what music
law attorneys do," said Singer,
a tourism, recreation and sport
management senior.
The panelists are people fur-
ther along the same path upon
which students intend to em-
bark, Frankel said.
"I think it's one of the closest
things to a crystal ball that ex-
ists," he said.

nities to have fun, and it feels good
to be a part of that."

Florida when I graduate from high
school."

Conference celebrates women


* CITY COMMISSIONER JEANNA
MASTRODICASA SPEAKS.

By AMANDA McKENZIE
Alligator Contributing Writer

The 20th annual Women's Leadership
Conference, "20 Years of Igniting
Change," brought together 170 women
from UF on Sunday to improve their
leadership skills and to celebrate the
achievements of women leaders.
The conference, which was held in
the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom, was
designed to empower women to ignite
change in the community, said Jessica
Inmon, director of the conference.
"It's a very positive empower-
ment program for women," said
Gainesville City Commissioner Jeanna
Mastrodicasa. "It offers you the chance
to lear great skills."


Mastrodicasa, the keynote speaker,
said she has been to the conference be-
fore to present workshops.
"I pride myself on being able to talk
to students," Mastrodicasa said.
She discussed parts of her life from
high school, college and her careers.
"Twenty years ago, I was in high
school," she said. "Women have come
a long way in the past 20 years, and we
still have much more to go."
She said the world revolves on what
people choose to do that makes them
happy, and she encouraged everyone to
find something that interests them.
She cited her own political involve-
ment as an example.
"I have no grandiose plans for poli-
tics, but I will run for re-election in two
years," she said. "There aren't many
women in political office. I am only the
second woman on the commission."
She added that she does not see why


women shouldn't get involved in poli-
tics, because women tend to be better
listeners.
"Since half our population is female,
I think half of our representation should
be women, too," Mastrodicasa said.
Katelyn Milliman, a physics junior,
said she found Mastrodicasa's speech
motivating.
"Men are told from a young age that
they should be leaders," Milliman said.
"Men are seen as masculine and power-
ful by nature, which is why we have this
conference because we as women
have to step out of our traditional
women roles."
The Woman Leader of the Year
Award will be presented in March,
Women's History Month, to under-
graduate women who have made the
campus and Gainesville community a
more positive and supportive environ-
ment through public service.

Tuition, tax


bills debated


at conference

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Contributing Writer

If SFCC officials get their way, textbooks will be
sales-tax-free and Bright Futures scholarships will
cover summer classes.
SFCC was one of 28 institutions represented
Saturday at the annual Florida Junior/Community
-Colleges Student Government Association confer-
ence in St. Petersburg, where
Santa Fe community college officials
COmmunity discussed legislative issues that
College will affect their institutions.
This year, the association
supports five of the six higher
education issues before the Florida Senate.
The two issues that received the most support
at the conference were the exemption of sales tax
for college textbooks and an increase in the Bright
Futures budget to pay for summer classes.
The only bill opposed by a majority of the con-
ference's participants was a proposed increase in
tuition for credit hours earned after the required
number for an associate degree has been met. If
passed, the bill would require students pursuing
associate degrees to pay 120 percent of the in-state
tuition after earning 69 credits.
The participating colleges are sending the
statements to the state Senate in hopes that it will
take their opinions into consideration when pass-
ing the bills.
The other state Senate issues that the confer-
ence participants support are:
*Allowing community colleges to charge a
transportation fee to pay for services like student
busing.
*Allowing community colleges to award
bachelor's degrees.
*Creating the Florida Public Community
College and Career Center Working Student
Assistance Program, which would provide alter-
natives to student loans for working students in
the community college system.
Also at the conference, SFCC adviser Dan
Rodkin was honored with the Vee Seever-Chote
award for promoting the evolution and well-be-
ing of student government.

Greeks remember slain brother, hold fundraisers


By JASON SILVER
Alligator Contributing Writer

The fraternity of a slain UF stu-
dent remembered him this week,
while other fraternities and so-
rorities put on events to support the
community.
At Norman Field on Sunday, the
Beta Theta Pi Fraternity held a field
day to remember Thomas O. Brown,


who was beaten to death after the
UF-University of Georgia football
game in 2005.
The fraternity's western-themed
event raised $700 for a scholar-
ship in Brown's name, fraternity
President Jordan See said.
"We did the philanthropy be-
cause we want the memory of our
brother to live on," See said.
The Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity


collected supplies such as dog food,
cat litter, meaning materials and toys
Saturday to donate to
Greek the Alachua County
Speak Humane Society, said
Jose Otero, Pi Kappa
Phi's chapter adviser.
Otero said the fraternity hosted
the event to send a message that
Greeks care about the community.
"This event helps the Greek com-.


munity show that we can beat the
stereotype," Otero said.
Also on Saturday, the Phi Mu
Sorority hosted its third annual
Home Run Derby at the Southwest
Recreation Center softball fields
and raised $1,000 for the Shands
Children's Hospital, said Melissa
Alfonso, Phi Mu's Panhellenic dele-
gate. More than 300 people took part
in the competition to see who could


hit the most home runs, she said.
The Delta Gamma Sorority sold
brand-name jeans at discount prices
on Friday to raise money for the
Children's Miracle Network.
Montana Ross, the president of
Delta Gamma, said the chapter sold
109 pairs of jeans and raised more
than $600.
Jason Silver is a UF junior and a
member of Tau Epsilon Phi Fraternity.


Birds' annual migration to city

brings back same old problem


BIRDS, from page 1

In the meantime, intimidating posters
should shoo the birds away.
Marcia Isaacson, director of the
School of Art and Art History and a
widely exhibited artist, drew a stylized
crow and taped copies of it to the walls
of the bridge, where tufts of feathers still
stuck to the glass.
"Someone once told me that they
would be afraid of crows," Isaacson
said.
The work of removing the bodies was
split between UF staff and a hawk that
was based on the roof of Fine Arts C.
"He was taking them away and
storing them somewhere and coming
back for more," said architecture junior
Stephen Morton, who had watched from
the bridge.
A few birds had been tossed into a
garbage barrel.
Mysteriously, the head of one bird
was separated from its body.

By Friday evening, the crow draw-
ings lined the walls of the bridge, and
most birds had gotten the idea. On the
pavement, one waxwing remained, the
feathers-on its face and crest twitching in
the faint breeze.
". hate when this happens, but
I might as well document it in
some way."
Katie Huerbsch
creative photography senior

Carefully, neutrally, Huerbsch picked
it up, her hand gloved with a plastic bag,
and put it with the others.
Huerbsch, a creative photography
senior, planned to photograph the birds
at progressive stages of decay:
She decided to use the images for a
series on recollection and longing.
"I hate when this happens," she said,
putting another bird in her bag, "but
I might as well document it in some
way."

Drawings of crows adorn windows in the hallway connecting Fine Arts C with the Fine Arts

a train ride in 1922. Franklin, his
mother and siblings accidentally
boarded the whites-only coach of a
train traveling toward their home-
town of Rentiesville, Okla. The
conductor asked Franklin's mother
to leave her seat and move to the
section for black passengers, but she
refused. The conductor threw her
and her children off the train, miles
from town.
Franklin started to cry as his fam-
ily walked home. His mother told
him to keep his dignity in the face of
discrimination.
"She said, 'Don't ever let me see
you crying,'" Franklin said.
The 92-year-old historian, who


helped desegregate public schools
and wrote one of the first thorough
textbooks on black history, spoke
to UF community members about
American democracy Friday night.
Franklin, the featured speaker for
this year's Gus Burns Memorial
Lecture, attracted a crowd of more
than 100.
Franklin discovered his passion
for black history in the late 1930s
while writing his dissertation at
Harvard University. His dissertation
on freed slaves in North Carolina
later became his first book.
Franklin avoided speaking about
himself for most of the speech, con-
centrating on inequality in America
and the country's international
reputation. .
America has historically been
prejudiced when recruiting for its
army, he said. George Washington
initially rejected the first black men
who volunteered to fight in the
Revolutionary War. The United
States, he said, currently lures


minimum wage workers into the
armed forces by offering them more
money.
In an interview before the event,
Franklin, who calls himself a "paci-
fist," said he tried to enlist in the
Navy after Pearl Harbor was at-
tacked. But when
he went to the of-
,_ :" fice, the recruiter
a turned him away
"That man,
who was ev-
erything but
pleading, said,
Franklin 'You have every-
thing but color,/"
Franklin said.
Because he was turned away, he
spent the rest of the war dodging
the draft.
When Franklin was enrolled at
North Carolina Central University,
then called North Carolina College
for Negroes, publishers proposed
that he write a book chronicling,
black history from preslavery Africa


to modem times. It took Franklin
about 14 months to finish "From
SlaVery to Freedom." Lacking re-
search space, he worked at the kitch-
en in his small apartment while his
wife, Aurelia, cooked. He eventually
traveled to the Library of Congress
to complete his book.
Provost Janie Fouke, who intro-
duced Franklin, said the book was
a true accomplishment.
"Shouldn't everybody be treated
with dignity?" she asked. "This is
something he's been demanding his
whole life."
From 1953 to 1954, Franklin
served as a historical consultant for
the legal team that won the land-
mark Brown v. Board of Education
trial, which outlawed segregation in
public schools.
During that time, he spent week-
ends briefing Thurgood Marshall,
who became the first black Supreme
Court justice, and his legal team on
the reconstruction of the South after
the Civil War and the equal protec-


tion clause of the 14th Amendment.
The clause promises due process of
the law to all people in the United
States.
"I taught them so much about
Reconstruction history that they
could spout it out any time,"
Franklin said.
When the courts ruled segrega-
tion illegal in public places, Franklin
said he knew blacks were in for a
long battle. Public schools still aren't
completely integrated, Franklin
said. At schools in Durham, N.C.,
where Franklin now lives, white
teachers will ignore black students
as they walk in and out of classes.
He said it seems like white teachers
have lowered their expectations of
black students.
Tameka Phillips, a doctoral stu-
dent in veterinary medicine, said it
was inspiring to hear the story of a
black man who triumphed over the
injustice of discrimination.
"It gives me something to look
forward to," she said.

Pants

Pull 'em up and start

campaigning
Last night, the Pants Party announced its platform for
the Student Government Spring elections. While they
ran as a joke last semester, this time around they tout
themselves as a "serious band of adventurers."
When Pants Party presidential candidate Bruce Haupt
ran for vice president last Fall, he knew he didn't have a
shot he just wanted to make the point that SG takes itself
'far too seriously. He got only 6 percent of the votes and the
Greek-dominated party remained on the throne.
Though the name is the same for Pants this semester, the
message is different. Haupt couldn't sit idly by and watch
the Gator Party run unopposed, and he is tired of SG acting
as a liaison for the UF administration instead of represent-
Sing the student body
The Pants Party's main ideals encompass transparency,
honesty, passion, results and Student Body representation
not SG's. These ideals definitely need to be addressed,
and we think Pants's idea of restructuring the SG executive
branch is a great one. The SG Cabinet has 22 offices, each
with its own director pretty much just code for "resum&-
padder."
While some of these, like the Multicultural Affairs and
the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning/
Queer Student Affairs cabinets exist for a reason, the
Research and the Orange and Blue cabinets are pretty
pointless.
Pants also proposed election reform. It supports broad-
casting debates on the UF television channel and live
streaming online as well. We support their proposal to
make the Student Government General Assembly address
open to the entire student body.
The party plans to cut the costs of SG elections and
we hope it starts by getting rid of those damn "I Voted"
stickers. We'd back that 100 percent.
Pants supports putting pressure on the Regional Transit
System to require it to use funds from the Transportation
Fee more proportionately on routes used more by students.
This makes sense. Why does our money pay for the buses
way out in East Gainesville while full buses pass us by ev-
ery morning when we're trying to get to campus?
But the Pants Party doesn't support the Academic
Enhancement Program shame on them. It feels that it is
not the students' responsibility to increase UF's revenues.
But with more than 70 percent of students receiving at least
75-percent Bright Futures, $1,000 is a small price to pay for
a quality education. The Party says the state Legislature
needs to redefine its priorities,-but before they can do that,
they will have to redefine Bright Futures and that won't
happen any time soon.
We applaud Pants for supporting the creation of an
Asian American Student Institute as part of the Dean of
Students Office. Asian Americans constitute 6.8 percent of
the student body almost as much as African Americans,
who make up 7.2 percent. Creating an Asian American in-
stitute has been talked about in the past but has never come
to fruition. It is time someone makes it happen.
And of course, we love their idea to have free condoms
available at all 24-hour dorm desks. We're in college. We're
going to have sex. We might as well make it as safe as pos-
sible. If Pants has its way, you may still get athlete's foot in
the community showers but you won't get chlamydia in
the dorms.

Co-luii:


When nobody wins
was out getting parts to fix my toilet the other day
when I saw a very peculiar billboard.
It was an ad for a gym that showed a woman smil-
ing and working out nothing odd there. But the woman
was noticeably overweight. This was an advertisement for
a place where you go to work hard and get healthy, and
this woman was not the poster child for either activity.
I'm not saying it should have been a half-naked, made-
up blonde Irrelevant Advertising Cleavage is another
problem entirely but this was still way off the mark.
I wish it took me a long time to understand a laughing
fat person in a gym ad, but it took about three seconds.
When many people see a physically fit person, they think,
"I could never look like that." So someone who looks like
them and seems happy is more comforting.
But people who join a gym in hopes of finding comfort
are already barking up the wrong tree.
We modem Americans prefer self-esteem to the pursuit
of tangible goals. It's the same reason we have "leader-
ship development" and kids soccer leagues that don't
keep score. We are fed up with test scores and weight loss
and measurable achievement because when you strive for
something, you might fall short of it. And when someone
wins, someone else must lose.
We have tried to take the impossible step from "may
the best man win" to "may everyman win" and we are
suffering the consequences.
Like most poisonous ideas, this stems from something
entirely innocent the desire to protect people from their
own hyper-competitive, success-obsessed tendencies.
Consider the example of a soccer league that doesn't
keep score. In a normal league, each game has a win-
ner and a loser, and it's easy to blow a win or loss out


Everybody loses
of proportion. Often, kids who
get creamed on the soccer field
may get down on themselves and
think that since they're not good
at soccer, they're not good at other
things.
Patrick Barrett This is supposed to be when
letters@alligator.org you learn the lessons of recre-
ational competition that the
only way to overcome failure is to
keep fighting it with hard work, and that you can lose and
still pick yourself back up. These lessons are the difference
between, for example, losing your job and breaking down,
or losing your job and looking for work the next day.
Instead, some people choose to respond with self-es-
teem-building, noncompetitive sports. But competition is
a fact of life, and trying to avoid it just makes it harder to
deal with.
When you refuse to call the team with the lower score
the loser, you only perpetuate the idea that failure is in-
deed so terrifying that we should do away with it alto-
gether.
All of this brings me back to the billboard, which, of
course, doesn't care how you feel it exists only to sell
gym memberships. But the ad succeeds because it feeds
into the growing mentality that success and effort are one
and the same.
Failure, much like a perfectly toned model in a gym ad,
can be intimidating. But it offers many more lessons than
does success, and forestalling failure only takes something
inevitable and intimidating and makes it unknown.

Christians not necessarily most moral
In response to Ashley Emans' letter in
Friday's Alligator: Separation of church and
state is an important aspect of our society. A
great country is not determined by how many
Christians run its government, but by how it
treats its people, no matter their race, gender
or religious preference. The fact that most
people elected to office in our country are.
Christian exists because a majority of the can-
didates are Christian but that should have
little effect on our country's morals.
Nelson Mandela and Gandhi weren't
Christian would you presume that their
morals were less substantial because of it?
Christians are a minority of the world's popu-
lation. If we hope to improve our foreign rela-
tions, we need to start treating others based on
their humanity, not their religion.

Constitution protects religious freedom
In response to Ashley Emans' letter on
Friday, the U.S. Constitution allows for free-
dom of religion, not freedom from religion.
Some Americans get mixed up in this debate.
Separation of church aid state means there
will be no state-sponsored religion like the
Church of England. It doesn't mean religion
will disappear from the public eye that's
a bit unrealistic. This country has consistently
elected Christians into presidential office. But
does this have anything to do with ideology?
Not likely. This is not an ideological or a moral
issue. This nation does not need a Christian in
office to be a moral government.
I found Ms. Emans' comments insulting
and ridiculous. I wonder if she is a member of
the group of people who thought Rep. Keith
Ellison should be sworn into office on a Bible


despite the fact that he is Muslim. The United non-Christians, liberals and Europeans, Ms.
States is not a Christian nation- regardless of Emans did make one salient argument.

propaganda. However, in between bashing deciding what's morally correct.


The founders wanted people to have free-
dom of choice, as long as that choice didn't
physically harm anyone else. Obviously their
dream has been lost in a sea of red tape, as can
be seen in the current political battles over gay
rights, abortion, drug laws, prostitution and
countless other "moral" issues. Gay rights
hurt no one, abortion is a choice, prostitution
is a choice, using drugs is a choice. Politicians
should stop trying to decide what's morally
right for all of us and start focusing more on
protection against those who abuse that choice
in the form of outward violence and public
disruption. People should be allowed to
choose what they do with their own lives.

HPV vaccine may promote promiscuity
There-seems to be a misconception when
it comes to Gardasil, this "miracle drug"
the Alligator has, regrettably, furthered in
Thursday's editorial. The vaccine does not
protect against cervical cancer. It provides
protection against four specific strains of the
sexually transmitted disease human papillo-
mavirus. Two of those strains account for 70
percent of HPV-related cervical cancer cases.
While I believe this is a tremendous step in
the right direction for preventive medicine, I
must disagree with statements made by Texas
Gov. Rick Perry and the actions of the Florida
Legislature. Requiring young women to re-
ceive the false hope of a miragee drug" which
protects them from cervical cancer may have a
negative effect in the promotion of sex.
You can get lung cancer without smoking,
and you can get hepatitis B without doing
drugs. But you cannot get the strains of HPV
that Gardasil protects against without having
sex.

went out," she said. "I was like, 'Oh my gosh,' when I
saw it.go out."
Her teammates knew it was gone as soon as Zick
made contact and what came after was borne of pure
joy.
"We all ran out onto the field to celebrate with her
as soon as she hit it," Nelson said.
Freshman catcher Francesca Enea had a strong
weekend in her first taste of college softball.
After going 0 for 2 against Northwestern State,
the freshman settled down and went 2 for 3 against
Oregon and hit her first career home run against New
Mexico. She finished the weekend with a .250 batting
average and three RBI.

Stevens' strong outing that included five strikeouts.
"We just didn't execute," Walton said. "We had run-
ners on base, and we didn't do what we had to do to
get them in. The blame falls on ourselves."
Third baseman Melissa Zick also had a strong
weekend. Her walk-off home run in the bottom of the
eighth inning against Arizona with Kim Waleszonia on
second base gave Nelson the win.
Entering the season, Walton expected Zick to claim
the leadership role vacated by Kristen Butler, the 2006

seems that Zick may pick up the offensive slack as
well. She finished the weekend with two homers and

UF unstoppable headed into March


Men pick up fifth straight


victory against rival Wildcats


How is this Gators team ever going to
lose again?
Sure, in college basketball, any-
thing can happen in March.
But with everything stacked against them
Saturday night, they were still too much for
the second-best team in the conference.
Can you think of a better formula for fail-
ure than what ensued against Kentucky on
Saturday?
The Rupp Arena record crowd was salivat-
ing in excitement, as if the game were for the
national championship.
And to Kentucky, maybe it was.
I swear a couple of the fans in the student
section were foaming at the mouth.
UF's two big men, Al Horford and Joakim
Noah, were in foul trouble the whole game
and couldn't get into any kind of rhythm.
Meanwhile, Kentucky's Randolph Morris
dominated the interior.
Lee Humphrey, who shoots 3-pointers like
they're free throws, went 1 for 6 from beyond
the arc.
And don't forget the game's final minute
or so, when UF couldn't even inbound.
But even the perfect storm of disaster sce-
narios couldn't stop the Gators from claiming
their fifth straight win against the Wildcats.
When Noah and Horford were unable to
contribute, reserve forward Chris Richard
filled in with his best performance of the
season.
Humphrey had trouble connecting on his
3-point attempts, but point guard Taurean
Green picked him up, shooting 3 for 5 from
long range.
And when UF sputtered offen-
sively down the stretch, Corey Brewer
saved the day with his aggressiveness.
Sure, the Wildcats might have won if they
weren't horrible from 3-point range, but some
of that has to be a credit to UF's defense, and


Kentucky isn't a team known for its offense,
anyway.
And while the game turned out to be
closer than UF had hoped, the Wildcats never
attempted a shot that would have given them
the lead.
The Gators only played well for a few
minutes in the first half, but that early 30-16
lead proved too much for host Kentucky to
overcome.
Barring major injuries to UF, the only way
to defeat the Gators is

to hope they play their
worst and Saturday's
performance was cer-
tainly close to that
- and you play your
absolute best, some-
thing Kentucky wasn't
able to accomplish at
home.


Meanwhile, the Gators won't face a bigger
challenge until March, and 16-0 is beginning
to look more than possible.
If they can defeat Kentucky at Rupp on an
off night, what does that say for the chances
of Alabama and Vanderbilt?
And if UF's freshmen are somehow able
to mature come tournament time, the Gators
may actually have some depth to throw
around.
Could you imagine if UF could rely
on productive minutes from Dan Werner,
Jonathan Mitchell, Marresse Speights and
Brandon Powell?
The bench seems to be UF's only weak-
ness, and I have to believe those guys will get
better as time goes on.
In other words, this team has the potential
to get better before all is said and done in
2007.
So will this Gators team ever lose again?
I'll believe it when I see it.


HOOPS, from page 1


"I missed one I shouldn't have
missed. I was kind of shaky, but
other than that, you've got to
be constant when you get to the
line."
Bradley failed to convert a final
3-point attempt with 1 second left,
and UF obtained its first back-to-
back games in Lexington since
1988-89 and its fifth straight in the
rivalry series.
"We knew if we kept digging
in we'd come out with the win,"
senior forward Chris Richard said.
"I'll never doubt us."
Richard was an integral part
in UF's win with Gators big men
Joakim Noah and Horford in foul
trouble. The duo combined for 14
minutes in the first half.
Richard shot 4 of 6 and tallied
11 points in the first half off thun-
derous dunks and timely 3-point
plays.
Horford said it was tough to
sit on the sideline and watch help-
lessly from the bench, but he was
proud that Richard could give the
Gators what they needed.
"Fortunately enough we had
Chris who came in and just sparked
us right away," said Horford, who
scored 9 points in 21 minutes. "He
set an inside presence."
Kentucky refused to back down
and clawed its way back on an 11-
0 run to close the gap to 4 points
with 2:41 left in the first half.
Seconds later, a Green 3-pointer
dimmed the arena's electricity, and
UF headed into the locker room
with a 9-point lead.
At the start of the second half,
Kentucky chipped away again but


couldn't cut the margin below 3 as
the Gators hung on despite poor
statistical production.
UF entered Saturday's game
leading the nation in shooting at
54 percent and held the No. 2 spot
for threes at 44 percent.
However, against the Wildcats,
the Gators hit 46.9 percent from the
field and 29.4 percent from behind
the arc.
Senior Lee Humphrey made
only 1 of his 6 attempts from 3-
point range.
Kentucky profited from UF's
inadequacies as Bradley and cen-

"I never felt like our team
was in the flow of the
game, and that's why I was
so proud of the win."
Billy Donovan
UF men's basketball coach


ter Randolph Morris became the
Wildcats go-to men.
After 4-point first-half perfor-
mances from both players, Bradley
scored 16 more and Morris sank
another 14 to keep the Wildcats
close in the second half.
But their second-half heroics
could not save the Wildcats from
defeat.
The Gators are the first team in
30 years to defeat Kentucky five
times in a row. No team has ever
downed the Wildcats in six con-
secutive contests.
"I never felt like our team was
in the flow of the game, and that's
why I was so proud of the win,"
UF coach Billy Donovan said.
"Tonight I want them to enjoy
this."

LaPorta breaks home-run record

By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer

At Matt LaPorta's postgame interview on Saturday,
a bird overhead dropped a surprise onto the senior first
baseman's hat.
"No way," LaPorta said when he realized feces'had
fallen square onto the bill of his cap.
It is said that such a thing is good luck, and it may have
been.
After the bird-dropping incident, the Gators were able
to win a game after dropping the first two contests to
Virginia Military Institute during the weekend.
LaPorta also set the record for career home runs at UF
with 56 besting Brad Wilkerson's mark
of 55 during the squad's 7-0 win on
Sunday.
"It didn't really hit me when I was run-
Baseball ning around the bases," said LaPorta, who
smacked the homer over the left-center
wall on the first pitch of the bottom of the seventh inning.
"But when I sat down in the dugout, I thought about it,
and I was like, 'Wow this is amazing. For the time being, I
have the Florida home-run record.'"
Freshman pitcher Billy Bullock kept the VMI batters off-
balance all day, shutting out the Keydets in 5 2/3 innings in
his first career start.
"It was really, really exciting," Bullock said of his first
start. "You always have jitters. If not, there's no reason to
pitch because you're done."
The UF bullpen also performed well, preserving the
shutout the first since opening day of 2006.
The bullpen did not allow an earned run the entire
series.
Despite the Sunday win, the Gators still sit at 1-2 with a
midweek game against Florida A&M and a series against
No. 5-~iami on the docket.
The reasons for the two losses were a familiar tune to
Gators fans: porous defense and poor situational hitting.
"Obviously we're not pleased with the outcomes on
Friday and Saturday," UF coach Pat McMahon said. "But
there were some good things that happened."
McMahon said he wanted to get a lot of players into the Tim Casey/ Alligator Staff
game and the team accomplished that, as several freshmen, Matt LaPorta points skyward while rounding third base on his 56th

None of them would miss this game,

played harder-than anyone could ask for,
but there's still one thing missing: a win.
The Gators lost a heartbreaker 79-74

O'Connell Center, tying them for the lon-

That mark was set during the 2002-03
season, Coach Carolyn Peck's first at the
helm. When asked if she had ever seen
a team play harder than her squad, Peck
paused a few seconds before answering.
"If I had, it would be a luxury," she said.
"I don't think anybody can take anything
away from how hard this team is battling.

not an option, not with this team.

* THE GATORS WENT 4-1 AT THE
KAJIKAWA CLASSIC.

By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

Stacey Nelson is making a habit of
upsetting championship teams.
For the second time in her career,
the sophomore pitcher defeated a top-
ranked defending national champion as
the Gators upset Arizona 3-1 in an extra-
innings thriller.
"That was a sweet victory for us,"
Nelson said of Saturday's victory. "That
was a great team win. We all did our part
to get that win. We really united in that
game."
Nelson's performance against the
Wildcats wasn't her only bright moment.
On the first day of the Kajikawa Classic
in Tempe, Ariz., the 19-year-old right-
hander set a career high with 10 strike-
outs in a 2-1 victory against an Oregon
team that defeated the Gators twice last
season.
Nelson nearly matched that mark
Sunday afternoon in the final day of the
tournament as she struck out nine batters
in a 5-0 shutout of New Mexico.
"I just brought a strong mentality and
I was aggressive," she said. "I didn't go
out there looking to strike out 10 batters,
that was a plus."
Despite her strong play, Nelson main-
tains that it will be the defense not
pitching that the Gators (4-1) will
rely on.
"We're not a dominating pitching
team," she said. "Our defense is the key
to our team the key to our success."
Coach Tim Walton agreed.
"Our defense was phenomenal," he
said. "We didn't give the opponent any
extra outs. That set the tempo for the
2007 season."
Senior pitcher Stacey Stevens also
had a strong performance, recording
five strikeouts in a 4-0 win against
Northwestern State. Stevens also took
a tough 4-3 loss Saturday against
Wisconsin in extra innings.
