UF may soon eliminate early decision


Board of Trustees will discuss it today


By KIMBERLY FULSCHER
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF's early decision admissions
program will be in jeopardy when
the UF Board of Trustees meets
today.


At a meeting Thursday, the
board's Educational Policy and
Strategy Committee decided to rec-
ommend that the board eliminate
the program.
In an interview after the meeting,
UF Provost Janie Fouke said, "We'd


be doing a disservice to our student
applicants if we kept it."
There are three deadlines for ap-
plicants now October, November
and January But under the new
system, there would only be one
mid-November deadline.


Applying early requires appli-
cants to contractually agree to come
to UF if accepted.
Fouke said during the meeting
that a main reason for eliminating
the program is that some applicants'
who are turned down during early
admissions could have had a better
chance during the regular admis-
sion period. Because there are fewer


slots open in the early period, it is
more competitive.
The committee's chairman,
Carlos Alfonso, said the new dead-
line would allow students to take
the SAT at least one more time than
the previous deadline allowed.
Fouke and the Office of
Admissions will have the final say if
the board axes the program, he said.


Students party


against prejudice


By KATIE PACKER
Alligator Contributing Writer
As the sun began to set
Thursday night, students
slowly trickled to a small patch
of grass between the Institute
of Hispanic-Latino Cultures
- more commonly known as
"La Casita" and the Institute
of Black Culture.
Whether it was the strong
smell of curried chicken and
plantains or the loud, Hispanic
pop music booming from
speakers, students were help-
ing to bring an end to racism
simply by eating and chatting.
Students Taking Action
Against Racism, a Student
Government organization,
hosted its International Block
Party as part of its weeklong
festivities promoting diversity.
"We are trying to get ethnic
groups together in a social gath-
ering," said Delia Hemandez, a


UF senior and director of the
organization. "It's a really re-
laxed environment."
Hemandez who was
born in Guatemala but calls
Miami home became inter-
ested in the organization as a
sophomore because she felt
that she was a target of racism.
"Being
Multicultural at UF, I tend
S to really
feel like a
minority in
the classroom, and whenever
a sensitive issue like race is
brought up, everyone turns
around and looks at me,"
Hemandez said.
The block party offered
a safe haven for students to
mingle and openly discuss the
issue of race over food that was
donated by local restaurants
for the event.

Twenty-five of the band's 75 members,

SPECIAL REPORT


To park or not to park? A few facts about roam towing


By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Writer

For some UF students, the truth
about Gainesville towing is masked
in rumors and tall tales.
Some student drivers, convinced
that towing companies have the
right to temporarily steal their cars,


feel helpless.
Here are the myths and the facts:
Myth: If a tow truck driver sees
that you are parked illegally and
starts to approach your car, he or she
has the right to tow it at that point.
Fact: If you reach your car before
the tow truck driver has physically
connected your vehicle to the tow
truck, he or she cannot tow your car


and cannot charge you a fee.
Myth: If you reach your car. after
the driver has hooked it to the tow
truck, he or she has the right to take
it to the towing lot.
Fact: If your car is still on the lot
where you parked it, the tow truck
driver must release your vehicle,
provided you give him-or her half
of the standard towing fee on the

Roam towing in the College Park area has been troublesome for some residents especially those
who don't know the rules of the road when it comes to towing.

spot. In Gainesville, no towing com-
pany can charge more than $76, so
if you pay the driver $38 in the lot,
he or she has to let your car go. That-
money is supposed to go to the com-
pany, not the driver's pocket. If the
driver does not release your car for
half of the standard towing rate and
provide you with a signed receipt,
he 'r she has committed a third-
degree felony.
Myth: If a tow truck driver dam-
ages your car while transporting it,
you have to pay to fix it.
Fact: Tow companies are liable
for any damages they cause. It is
illegal for a tow company to force
you to sign a document waiving its
liability before it gives you your car
back. Property managers who have
contracts with the tow companies
are not liable for damages.
Myth: Apartment complexes
and businesses get paid in kickbacks
when you get towed.
Fact: Contracts between towing
companies and property manage-
ment cannot, by law, include any
monetary exchange. Transfer of
funds is a third-degree felony. All
contracts between management
companies and towing companies
are filed with the Gainesville Police
Department to ensure they're con-
sistent with the law.
Myth: If you get towed late at
night, the towing lot may be cosed
and you will have to wait until the
next day to get your vehicle.
Fact: By law, all towing lots must
be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. After
those hours, a sign must be posted
with the phone number of the tow-

ing operator. You can call that num-
ber at any time, and the operator
must show up to give you back your
car within one hour. If the operator
doesn't show up, he or she has com-
mitted a third-degree felony.
Myth: A tow truck driver can't

break into your car to tow it.
Fact: Legally, the driver can.
But he or she has to use "reason-
able care" and can only enter your
vehicle for the purpose of removing
it from the lot.
Myth: If its late at night and a
business is cosed, you can park
there if it's convenient and then
walk to wherever you are going.
Fact: Property managers can be
held liable for an accident that hap-
pens in their lot, even if it happens
outside of their business hours. So
if you are not a customer, they don't
want you there. Most towing com-
panies will not hesitate to tow your
vehicle 24/7.

DANCE MARATH- l

Dancers prepare to endure night


By JESSILYN THIBOULT
Alligator Contributing Writer
The matter most on UF students'
minds this weekend might be what
kind of shoes they're wearing.
About 650 Dance Marathon.
participants will try to stay awake
and on their feet in the O'Connell
Center for 32 hours. The annual
event, which begins Saturday at 8
a.m., raises money and awareness
for Children's Miracle Network.
The challenge has prompted sev-
eral students to develop strategies
to keep going during the difficult
hours.
As a two-year veteran, finance ju-
nior Anu Mathur knows one of the
most important parts of preparation
is picking her shoes.
"Not flip-flops this year -.they
were surprisingly painful," she said.
"I'll have a couple of pairs of trainers
and a few changes of socks."
Ashley Gordon, the community
events captain, is also participating
for her third time. She prepared this
week by exercising and getting lots


of sleep.
She suggested: "Pack all of your
stuff, including snacks and toys. Go
to bed really early. Turn off your
phone so no one wakes you up. No
drinking, no partying and make
sure you set your alarm."
"The more people you see
and have there to support
you, the less you think.
about how much your feet
hurt."
Ashley Gordon
Dance Marathon community events
captain

Members of the morale team
are gearing up to cheer on the stu-
dents, said morale Chairman Tony
Whetstone.
"Starting from 9 a.m. on Friday, I
will be at the O'Dome setting up for
the event/' he said. "We usually get
done around 8 p.m."
Mathur said she has seen


Turlington Plaza bustling with en-
ergy this week as morale captains
bring their boom boxes and perform
line dances from previous years.
Dancing will help keep the en-
ergy up, but Gordon said she also
suggests that dancers create a rotat-
ing schedule of friends to visit dur-
ing the event. She said she thinks it
could make the difference between
a dancer being OK for a few more
hours or quitting.
"The more people you see and
have there to support you, the less
you think about how much your feet
hurt," Gordon said.
Besides making arrangement
for companionship, Gordon also
suggests bringing a toothbrush and
a tube of toothpaste. She said the
feeling of freshly cleaned teeth helps
keep her rejuvenated.
She also said she'll be looking
forward to the 10 pounds of boiled
spaghetti noodles her friends will
bring for her to stand in.
She said it sounds gross but re-
ally helps after being on your feet
for that long.

tionalities including Iranian, Indian, Cuban and Persian
- sat together at a long table talking and snacking.
Others stood in a comer of the yard and bopped to the
upbeat music, which was mostly in Spanish but also in-
cluded American hip-hop and pop songs.
"I like to learn about different cultures," said Carlos
DeLeon, a UF freshman. "I believe we can learn a lot from
one another and we can end racism through unity."
One topic DeLeon wanted to address was the many di-
versities within Hispanic culture.
"People call me Spanish," said DeLeon, whose parents
are from Cuba. "People need to realize that 'Spanish' is the
language or a person from Spain."
The block party is not the only event this week promot-
ing an end to prejudices.
The organization will continue its campaign against rac-
ism Friday at a diversity fair on the Plaza of the Americas.
"Diversity makes everything more interesting," said UF
sophomore Gloria Tavera. "And the free food is good."

UFpep band tryouts more competitive after championship victory


BAND, from page 1


been able to keep up with that pres-
sure, it's incredible."
Though McDonald would go to
the games even if he weren't in the
band, he said the perks are nice. He
earns about $20 per game and gets
free airfare and travel expenses.
Band members usually travel on
the plane with the players, but there
isn't much opportunity to socialize
with them.
"They sit in first class, and we


sit on the back of the plane," he ex-
plained with a laugh.
After the plane touches the
ground, McDonald and his friends
have ample opportunity to explore
the city.
For the regional finals last week,
they visited a number of tourist
sights, including the Anheuser-
Busch Companies Inc. headquar-
ters.
"We do all the normal touristy
things," he said.
The pep band is open to anyone
who can play an instrument, but
most people who attend the October


auditions are interested in more than
just the opportunity to play.
Chip Birkner, the assistant direc-
tor, said most members are basket-
ball fans. He said the band became
more competitive after the team
won the national championship. In
October, 150 students tried out.
For the music lovers, the pep
band is a less time-consuming al-
ternative to the marching band. Pep
band members have attended about
four one-hour Sunday practices
since October.
Sophomore Lauren Kelley said
she struggled in school when she


was in marching band, but the pep
band gives her more time to do
homework.
"It's really laid-back and really
nice," she said.
Kelley, who plays the piccolo,
said the only nerve-wracking aspect
of her job is the solos. She has been
playing the piccolo since sixth grade,
but she still felt nervous the first few
times she played at games.
"They don't sing along, but
they're listening," she said.
Band members said the only
downside of joining the band is bar-
gaining with teachers to make up


exams or papers. Sometimes they
have to take tests or turn in papers
early.
Birkner writes a note to profes-
sors when one of his musicians
misses a test, and he often offers to
proctor the missed exam.
For some band members, miss-
ing class is a smaller concern than
UF winning the national title.
Kelley said she couldn't wait
for the Final Four game in Atlanta,
when UF will take on UCLA.
"We're proud to stand behind
the Gators, and we hope they win."
she said.

Leak to hold first public signing in Jacksonville


By BRIAN MEE
Alligator Contributing Writer


Former UF quarterback Chris
Leak is scheduled to make his
first public autograph signing this
Saturday.
From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., Leak and
five other graduating UF football


players will join the legion of pre-
vious Gators football stars who
have made appearances at the
Palm Beach Autographs store in
the Avenues Mall in Jacksonville.
The list includes Reggie Nelson,
Dallas Baker and Jarvis Moss.
"Since returning to Florida
from the BCS Championship


Game
Arizona,

ship team," J


in Dodson said.
we UF alumni Dodson and his
*en brother, Steve, founded and own
ard Palm Beach Autographs. Their
ev- younger brother, Dan, is currently
ng a sophomore at UF and also helps
om with the store.
on- The store moved from a dif-
im ferent location, and its reopening


is orchestrated around the auto-
graph signing, Steve said.
Nelson Garcia, a UF sopho-
more, is planning on making the
drive to meet Leak.
"There's no better way to re-
open a store than to bring in the
national champion quarterback of
the Florida Gators," Garcia said.

Editorial
One more week down. Three and a half to go. Then
it's just the drinking ahem, reading days and exam
week, and we'll be home free. We can already feel the shift.
Winter is officially over it's downright hot. We're hav-
ing thoughts of internships, study abroad and summer
jobs. We're planning days at the beach and nights at the
bars.
Of course, the end of the semester also means it's time
to think about term papers well, maybe in two weeks.
But for now, it's business as usual. And that means we
have, for your reading pleasure, a shiny new edition of...



Darts & Laurels

First off it's a this-cat-fight-has-turned-into-an-embar-
rassment DART to all parties involved in the "Jeb Affair."
At least, that's what we have officially dubbed this battle
to the death between the Faculty Senate and the combined
efforts of the Student Senate, the Alumni Association and
UF President Bernie Machen. It has gotten out of control,
and now it's just bringing unneeded'negative attention to
our university. Hopefully the basketball team can make up
for it.
On that note, we have a the-Gator-Nation-has-definite-
ly-extended-to-Atlanta LAUREL for the men's basketball
team for making it to the NCAA Final Four Tournament this
weekend. This is the second year in a row we're competing
for the national title. No matter the outcome of the games,
the Gators are champions in our book.
Also around campus, we've got a pull-up-a-chair-and-
stay-awhile LAUREL for Chomp the Vote, which is accept-
ing applications for a new director after the entire organiza-
tion disappeared in the midst of state and local elections.
Chomp has the potential to be one of the most important
student organizations on campus but without hiring a
well-qualified director, it's got nothing. We hope acting
director Tyler Antar can find a great one, because the next
round of elections is just around the corer.
Here is a you-always-give-us-more-reasons-to-hate-you
DART to towing companies around, town. Sure, things
have gotten better recently, especially since tow truck driv-
ers are now required to take digital photographs of cars
before towing them. But if towers say they won't tow in
certain cases and the photos show they do, it's hard to let
them off for being the bad guy.
But it's not just the towing companies. One party alone
could not create so much evil. So we have a we-should-
have-known-you-were-secretly-behind-it-the-whole-time
DART to apartment complexes with particularly stringent
contracts with towing companies like those that allow
a car to be towed just for touching a white line. It's a little
outrageous, guys. Encroaching on another parking spot is
one thing, but as long as all the complex's residents can
park, we see no reason for these apartment complexes to
tow our cars.
Next up, we have a you-can-get-yourself-clean-and-you-
can-have-a-good-meal LAUREL to the Gainesville City
Commission for choosing a location for the new one-stop
homeless center. It's about time. The search began in late
2005 from a list of more than 125 possible locations, and in
the end, a former warehouse and office building on North
Main Terrace was selected.
We just hope it doesn't take as long for them to renovate
the building and get it up and running as it did to decide on
a location. After all, there are only eight and a half years left
to end homelessness in Gainesville.

Column

UF should require
If religion is making a comeback in the classroom, send me
a copy of the CliffsNotes.
For as long as I can remember, discussing religion in a
public classroom has been a taboo subject. But according to
this week's issue of Time magazine, more than 60 percent of
Americans favor teaching the historical context of the Bible in
the classroom -- a surprising statistic considering the nega-
tive stigma associated with religion in the classroom. Why
not teach it? There's even a CliffsNotes version.
But evangelicals beware -there's a twist. MostAmericans
want teachers to explain the Bible to their children in a cul-
tural context instead of preaching the book to them.
Well, can CliffsNotes adequately explain how many of
today's social and cultural issues relate back to the Bible with
out getting too religious? Can teachers hold suitable discus-
sions with students without the conversation getting out of
control? This has been debated for years, but the time has
come for universities to take up the challenge.
As usual, Harvard University seemed to get the memo
about this religion-in-the-classroom thing before most other
schools. In October 2006, a faculty committee considered rec-
ommending that the university require all students to take at
least one religion course as a general education requirement.
Although this proposition was eventually modified to
suggest students take a course about "culture and belief,"
at least administrators considered their options. Most UF
students' only interaction with religion is passing the Hare
Krishnas on the way to class or being assaulted by the in-
your-face preachers on Turlington Plaza.
With the wide range of religious diversity found on a
campus with more than 50,000 students, UF should consider
a proposition like Harvard's.
I'm not proposing a Bible free-for-all in the classroom. I
suggest requiring students to take a religion course of their
choice. Students could study the history of a religion or the
cultural context of a religion. This would give them the op-


religion courses
portunity to better understand a
religion even if it is their own.
Who knows, maybe other
departments could offer reli-
gion-themed classes as well. The
English department already offers
a course that examines the Bible as
Gordon Van Owen a literary work rather than a work
letters@alligator.org of divine intervention. Maybe the
mathematics department could
offer a course that explains bibli-
cal calculations Lord knows I couldn't build a tabernacle
based on the dimensions given in the book of Exodus.
Of course, coordinating such courses would require pro-
fessors to put aside personal beliefs and allow students to
come to their own realizations about the course material. But
isn't that what the college experience is all about?
However, there's a key to making this process a success:
teaching, not preaching. Often that's the problem with those
preachers on Turlington Plaza. They preach, we run.
Meanwhile, professors teach and we're intrigued, even
when we don't agree with what they're saying.
There lies the solution. Allow professors to discuss reli-
gion in their respective fields and help students come to their
own terms about the subject matter, rather than forcing them
to believe what is being presented to them. By doing so, UF
and its teachers will help raise a generation that will be able
to see the historical, religious context of modem events.
So maybe "CliffsNotes on the Bible" may not tell me the
complete history of Christianity, but at least it could help me
understand the religious undertones behind the Superman
movie and the Matrix trilogy. The Bible is important in a
historical context, but we should adapt to use it to better
understand modem society.

dent. His column appears on Fridays.

Letters to the Editor
Enjoy NCAA basketball games safely
Congratulations to our student-athletes,
their coaches and their support staff for yet
another exciting season of Gators basket-
ball and the upcoming Final Four games in
Atlanta.
Because the event is within reasonable
driving distance from Gainesville, I know'
many of you will go to Atlanta. For those of
you who plan to travel, safety is the order of
the day. Please be careful in Atlanta and on
your way there and back. A few tips:
Don't drink and drive.
Get plenty of rest before traveling.
Always wear your seat belt.
When possible, stay in groups in
town and on the road.
Make sure your cell phone batteries


are fully charged.
Celebrate responsibly.
Thanks again for your support of our stu-
dent-athletes. Go Gators!

president, University of Florida



Museum event offered learning and fun
I really dug pun intended the ge-
ology exhibition at the Florida Museum of
Natural History on March 22. Gathering up
my two children, ages 10 and 12, we headed
off to the museum expecting informative pre-
sentations, but were pleasantly surprised not
only by the variety of exhibits, but also by the
genuine passion shown by every representa-


tive of the geological sciences department.
Manning the Oreo Tectonics station was
professor David Foster. As the crunchy,
chocolaty lithosphere slid over the sweet
and creamy asthenosphere, I noticed Foster
worked in geological terms, such as "uplift,"
"continental spread" and "divergent plate
boundaries" sneaky. My kids learned fun-
damental principles of geology and loved it.
One of the most dynamic exhibits was the
booth devoted to volcanism. Professor Matt
Smith's enthusiasm was matched only by the
explosiveness of his volcano and his bubbly
demonstration of pyroclastic properties.
Relegated outside of the museum because of
his messy and explosive experiments, Smith
said, while reflecting upon his presentation,
that the explosion needs to be BIGGER! Who

knows how far away from the museum
they'll place him next year.
Cave mapping, cool geological tools,
microscopic examinations of kaleidoscope-
like crystalline, chain saw core samplers to
measure magnetic properties and many more
educational and entertaining demon-
strations were made. Judging by the smiles
in the crowd, it can safely be said a fun and
educational time was had by all.
Kudos to the dedicated and enthusiastic
team of faculty, graduate students, under-
graduates and volunteers of the geological
sciences department of UF. They truly exem-
plify the spirit of our much-heralded Gator
Nation.

Guest colu ni r

Diversity education begins on campus with culture institutes


Applaud the recent editorial about the his-
tory of establishing the Institute of Black
Culture.
However, we cannot forget the cultural and
historical context that movement came out of.
During the post-civil rights era, the black
power movement attempted to reclaim an
identity that was systematically looked down
upon and threatened.
This movement helped ignite other com-
munities to reclaim their identities through
the brown and yellow power movements;
women's liberation; lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender rights; and ethnic studies in the
1970s. Students have advocated for resources
that connect their experiences from their home


to the classroom for the past 30 years.
But we are still left with a struggling
African-American studies minor program and
an Asian-American studies certificate, run by
a volunteer faculty.
In 2003, groups of students with the
Institute of Black Culture, La Casita, and the
Asian American Student Union came together
to demand an Institute of Asian and Asian-
American Cultures. The administration's
response was, "Please wait."
Why must these diverse experiences, con-
nected history and current issues continue
to go unacknowledged and inaccessible by
the Gator Nation? Where does this lead the
education of our future teachers, politicians,


Leo lawyers and doctors
concerning recent im-
Esclamado migrant issues, gender
Speaking Out issues, marginalized
ethnic communities
and cultural competency?
If there is no concerted effort to change our
academic environment, future man-made di-
sasters will continue to happen.
To use an example from Hurricane Katrina,
the aftermath of the storm was framed as a
black-and-white issue. But the storm displaced
30,000 Vietnamese Americans throughout the
region. The Federal Emergency Management
Agency did not have the competence to hire
one Vietnamese translator.


Today, it is up to nonprofit organizations to
support language access for those Vietnamese
Americans. Along the Mississippi coastline,
land owned by communities of color are now
being planned for new casino developments
and "green spaces" for the state, blocking the
community's right to return home.
Education for understanding our diverse
histories starts on campus. Much-needed
institutions like an Asian-American Institute
would help provide safe learning spaces for
students.
If future professionals from the Gator
Nation will reinforce systems of exclusion,
then consider my citizenship revoked.

Ohio State writer:

UF is better school

OHIO STATE, from page 20

of college's two major sports. And lately, the two
schools have crossed paths.
Halfway through the basketball regular season,
UF football coach Urban Meyer spoke to the men's
basketball team. His sermon compared the Gators'
then-No. 1-ranked basketball team to the Buckeye's
No. 1-ranked football team prior to playing the
Gators. Meyer wanted them to realize they must
fend off every team's best shot and avoid compla-
cency, something the Buckeyes failed to do.
"Everybody had picked Ohio
State and there was no chance
Florida could beat the big, bad
Ohio State," forward Joakim
Men's Noah said. "(The media) made
Basketball (the Gators) angry. They played
possessed out there ... They read
so much negative press about themselves that they
were just like, 'You know what? F- this; let's just go
get this.'"
Interestingly enough, Kevin Homan, a sports
writer for Ohio State's school paper, The Lantern,
wrote a column contrasting the two schools. After
visiting Gainesville, Homan concluded UF is a bet-
ter university. If the Gators win against UCLA on
Saturday and Ohio State ousts Georgetown, the
Buckeyes will have a chance to prove him wrong.

ing perfection from the athletes. That is what we
are striving for each and every time. So if they are
not doing that, I have to be hard on them right now
because SECs is historically a very tough competi-
tion."
If it was an actual competition, sophomore
Corey Hartung would have taken the all-around
title. Hartung just started competing in all four
events regularly this season. In the Gators' final
regular-season meet, she also earned the title.
"Right now, we're expecting and almost
demanding perfection from the ath-
letes."
Rhonda Faehn
UF gymnastics coach

Despite not performing her best during the past
competitions, Faehn assures that junior Ashley
Reed, who won the Gators' first SEC Gymnast of
the Week this season, will be a force to reckon with
at the meet.
"You have to have an up-down cycle," Faehn
said. "Ashley is probably doing what's correct."
Arkansas has become a second home for the
Gators-this season. UF started off its campaign with
a victory at the Super Six Challenge in Fayetteville.
In addition, it defeated Arkansas in an away dual
meet. The Gators' score at the event was the high-
est of any road competition.

Ratliff surges for hot Gators


By KARL HYPPOLITE
Alligator Writer

Mary Ratliff is smitten with her new-found
power.
It took the junior more than two years and
136 at-bats to smash her first collegiate home
run, but she's been hot lately, hitting two homers
last week. The UF softball team's strong play has
coincided with Ratliff's explosion.
The Gators (27-14, 5-6 Southeastern
Conference) are hoping to extend a seven-game
winning streak as they take on Mississippi (14-21,
5-6 SEC) beginning Saturday at 1 p.m. in Oxford.
If recent history is any indication, more long
balls could come against the Rebels.
Ratliff's first home run came in the Gators' 9-0
rout against Princeton last week, and she took a
liking to it. Her second came just two days later in
UF's 14-0 win against Georgia last Saturday.
Not bad for someone whose teammates joked
had only "warning track power."
"We joke with her because she probably hits
more balls off the fence than any other person
on the team," pitcher Stacey Stevens said. "So
we joke with her and say WTP warning track
power because her balls always seem to be on
the warning track.
"Coach (Tim) Walton challenged her, and late-
ly she'sbeen really hot, so it was really good to see


her respond with two really big home runs."
The right fielder has hit 8 for 16 and driven in
seven runs during UF's winning streak.
"I'm very proud of Mary," Walton said. "She's
one of those determined hitters. She's got a lot of
determination, a lot of excitement in her. If Mary
gets a big hit, you're going to feel Mary."
Continuing to get opportuni-
ties is the key for Ratliff.
She was used as a pinch hitter
for most of the last two seasons
Softball and made just 71 appearances at
the plate.
This season, Ratliff has already reached a
career-high 72 at-bats and is second on the team
with a .292 batting average.
- "The more you get to see pitchers, the more
success you're going to have," Ratliff said. "In
a pinch hitting role, you're limited to one at-bat
a game, where as a regular player you have,
two, three maybe four chances to see the same
pitcher."
Though she hopes she's finally shed her
"WTP" label, Ratliff isn't expecting to challenge
2006 SEC Player of the Year and former Gators
catcher Kristen Butler's school-record 17 homers.
"By no means does that make me a home run
hitter or anything like that," she said. "I can hit
line drives all day, and I'll be just fine. Hopefully
they'll get off my back a little bit."

OSU rematch a possibility


UF HAS DOMINATED THE
BUCKEYES IN TWO SPORTS.

By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

ST. LOUIS UF and Ohio State
are like conjoined twins always after
the same crush. Except the Gators end
up'with the girl.
That's how the Buckeyes' football
and men's basketball teams must
feel, anyway. The torture started
on Dec. 23, when UF's hoops team
blasted then-No. 3 Ohio State out of
Gainesville with an 86-60 win.
Some Gators fans worried the
blowout might anger Ohio State's No.
1 football team, which was to play UF
in the BCS National Championship
game on Jan. 8. Everyone knows how
that panned out.
Now the Gators and Buckeyes
could meet again as hoops oppo-
nents in the championship game.
"That would be really ironic,"
UF forward Al Horford said. "There
would just be too many coincidenc-
es."
At first glance, you can't find
many common traits between the two
schools. True, both have built reputa-
- tions as football powerhouses. But
Ohio State has more tradition and its
own mystique, from the Horseshoe to
Woody Hayes to hoops legends like
Jerry Lucas and John Havlicek.
UF, meanwhile, often gets the fair-
weather, party-school stereotype. Its
football team has only been a consis-
tent player on the national scene since
Steve Spurrier coached. Basketball-


wise, you might as well demarcate the
school's history into B.D. and A.D. -
Before Donovan and After Donovan,
as in Coach Billy Donovan.

But recently, both schools have
become mainstays at the pinnacle

No. 1 UF aims


for SEC crown

By RACHEL ROBINS
Alligator Writer
rrobins@alligator.org

Even though UF's gymnastics team is unde-
feated and No. 1, it won't matter unless the Gators
do something in the postseason.
All of the milestones the team has accomplished
thus far won't be as remarkable unless it finishes
with something more at the end of the season.
The Gators' (15-0-1, 5-0-1 Southeastern
Conference) first chance comes this Saturday in
Little Rock, Ark., at the SEC Championships when
they attempt to dethrone Alabama and Georgia
from the podium. Since 1989, the title has belonged
to the Crimson Tide or the Bulldogs. Georgia is the
defending champion.
GC This year's SEC meet fea-
tures the top four teams in the
nation, UF, Georgia, Alabama
Gymnastics and LSU.
"It's unbelievable the
level of talent that is in this conference," UF coach
Rhonda Faehn said. "This SEC competition, you
have more talent and more difficulty, especiallyin
the top four teams competing right now, than you
do at nationals. It's going to be a great competition.
We have to do our job or we are not going to get the
results we want."
To prepare for the tournament, UF organized a
mock meet last Saturday night. Faehn and her two
assistant coaches served as the judges, and they
were not playing favorites.
"They didn't do a bad job at all," Faehn said.
"Right now, we're expecting and almost demand-

Gators head to Athens with newly found confidence


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer
aweintraub@alligator.org

A little more than a week ago,
the UF baseball team was in a dif-
ferent place.
The squad had dropped seven
of nine games and had fallen to
11-13.
The Gators '(15-3, 4-2
Southeastern Conference) were
just getting started with the tough-
est partfof their schedule against


SEC opponents. But then some-
thing unexpected happened.
UF went to Auburn last week-
end and swept the Tigers, who
came into the series boasting an
18-6 record.
Now the Gators look to con-
tinue that momentum at Georgia
thisweekend.
"Auburn is an outstanding
club," UF coach Pat McMahon
said. "To win three games in that
environment, particularly a one-
run game ... by doing the little


things right is huge."
After the Auburn series, UF
won its midweek game 5-3 against
Bethune-Cookman, extending its
winning streak to four games.
If you ask McMahon what has
happened, he will tell you nothing
has changed.
"It's a process the entire year,"
he said. "We've just got to keep
going up in areas. We are defend-
ing the field well, but we've got to
pitch well to be successful."
Prior to the Auburn series, the


Gators were struggling to find
consistency.
Against Mississippi State one
week earlier, the Gators dropped
two of three, allowing 34 runs.
Then, in a midweek game
against Stetson, the pitching came
through, but the hitting failed as
UF fell 4-3.
But last weekend against the
Tigers, the hitting and pitching
came through as needed, giving
the squad its most impressive per-
formance of the year.


Senior first baseman Matt
LaPorta played a large role in the
team's success, going 7 for 13 with
three home runs and 7 RBI in the
series. In Sunday's match, the slug-
ger went 4 for 4 from the plate.
The weekend showing won
LaPorta SEC Player of the Week
honors.
He also was named National
Hitter of the Week by the National
Collegiate Baseball Writers

Gators smash Bruins for school's first hoops title


By DAN TREAT
Alligator Staff Writer

Original Run Date: April 4

INDIANAPOLIS They -were
labeled the team that aias a \ear
awa', the team that was too ine\-
perienced to %\ in a title, so excuse
them for their celebration.
As the confetti flew- into the
an and the pile formed at cen-
ter court. Corei Breiiwer and Al
Hortord made a beeline tor the
section ot. UF -tudents., ho in-
stantly embraced them.
And that's when Joakim Noah
the one whom fans have revered
the most, ascended atop press
row and threw his fists toward-
the heavens and Gator Chomped
to the crowd, signifying that
there was not
-- a greater time
to be a Florida
2L 4 3-.j Gator.
It took -1
years, but the
Gators can finally call themselves
the best team in the land.
And they defeated the greate-st
program in the history of college
basketball to get there
UF had four player, in double
thgures and controlled the pace
throughout to deteat UCLA 71-
57.
"It's indescribable," Noah
said. "This i- the best I've ever
felt in my life. You work so hard
for these moments, and they're
so worth it. We worked so hard
as a team, and so much sweat
and tears and sacrifices to get
moments like this. I'm like on a
cloud right now."
With the Gators leading 36-25
at halftime shooting, guard Lee
Humphrey quickly put the game
out of reach early in the second
half, much like he did against
George Mason in the national
semifinals on Saturday.


Alligator File Photo
Taurean Green (right), David Huertas (center) and Adrian Moss (left) celebrate after winning the national championship against UCLA.


He hit three 3-pointers during
UF's first two possessions.
Corey Brewer followed up
with a three of his own to give
the Gators an 18-point lead at 45-
27, sending an already raucous
Gators crowd further into frenzy.
After the 3-point barrage, the
Bruins cut the deficit 12 points
and started pressuring the Gators
in the backcourt with less than 8
minutes remaining.
The Bruins pestered UF into
a few turnovers, stirring up the


UCLA crowd, but they weren't able
to capitalize on the opportunities.
The Gators shot 6 for 19 from
behind the 3-point line and 44.8
percent from the floor, while the
frontcourt of Joakim Noah and
Al Horford finished with 16 and
14 points anid eight and seven
rebounds, respectively.
Hoford cemented the victory,
throwing down a two-handed
dunk in the final minute, pound-
ing his chest and then pointing to
the sky.


"Like I said, the Gator boys
are hot right now," Noah said.
"I can't wait to get back to
Gainesville, and Coach, don't get
mad at us, because we are going
to do it very, very, very big when
we come back."
UF hit five of its first six shots
and had just three turnovers in
the first half, not committing its
first until more than 10 minutes
had ticked off the clock.
Adrian Moss was vital to the
Gators, scoring 9 points and


grabbing three rebounds before
intermission, as UF led by as
many as 13 in the first half.
"I get great pleasure seeing
these kids enjoy it, seeing our
university enjoy it, our adminis-
tration, I really mean that," said
UF coach Billy Donovan, who be-
came the second-youngest coach
to win a national title.
"It's about the people you
coach all the time. I get a great
deal of pleasure seeing how hard
everyone else works."

Afflalo seeks payback after loss


By LOUIS ANASTASIS

lanastasis@alligator.org

It took Arron Afflalo all but
a few seconds to describe last
season's NCAA Championship
loss to the Gators.
"It was horrible," he said.
"Not the game itself, but the
thought of losing. You always
want to make your mark and do
something special. Winners are
never forgotten. Finishing sec-
ond-best just isn't good enough.
It was very painful that night."
Not only did UF dismantle
UCLA 73-57, but Afflalo strug-
gled, scoring just 10 points
while contributing a paltry two
rebounds, one assist and one
steal. The first team Associated
Press All-American would like
nothing better than to make
restitution.
"Now that it's here, it's a great
thing," Afflalo said. "It gives us
a chance to kill two birds with
one stone in a sense: A chance at
revenge and moving toward the
championship."
Afflalo usually gets his way.
The junior guard out of
Compton, Calif. (Centennial
High) has solidified a reputation
as one of the premier players na-
tionally by averaging 16.9 points
and draining 84 3-pointers.
At 6-foot-5, Afflalo can do it all.
Sure, he can hit from the outside,


but he is also a strong finisher.
, And, when UCLA point guard
Darren Collison was asked who
the Bruins best defender is, he
hardly hesitated.
"That's an easy question: It's
Arron," Collison said. "When
Coach (Ben Howland) tells
him, 'Stop the other team's best
player,' we don't have a problem
with that. We know Arron is in
it to get the job done. He's been
doing it all along, ever since he
got here."


Not the game itself, but the
thought of losing. You always
want to make your mark and do
something special. Winners are
never forgotten. Finishing sec-
ond-best just isn't good enough.
It was very painful that night.
Arro Aff~is
Added Howland: "In the
backcourt, Arron is continuing to
draw the best perimeter player
on the other team all year long
for the last three years."
But even All-Americans have
struggles.
California shut down
Afflalo during the Pacific-lO
Tournament, limiting him to just
3 points on 1-of-7 shooting. It
marked only the second time all
season that Afflalo failed to score
in double digits.


"Arron's only had one bad
game in three years," Howland
said.
Perhaps he was being too
kind. Save for a Weber State
game sandwiched in between,
Afflalo recently hit a four-game
rut during which he made just
10-of-43 field goals. Howland
instructed him to forget about
jump shots and drive to the hoop
instead. Afflalo burst out of the
funk against Kansas in the Elite
Eight when he exploded for 24
points, three 3-pointers, -four re-
bounds and three assists.
"As one of the more experi-
enced guys on the team, I have to
find other ways to help my team,
whether it's defense on the floor,
making a pass, doing something
else," Afflalo said.
Oftentimes, Howland feels
like Afflalo's best trait goes un-
noticed.
"Arron is about winning and
making his team win," Howland
said. "You do so many other
things to help your team win
than just shooting the basketball.
Like (former Utah coach) Rick
Majerus said, 'On ESPN all you
ever see are dunks. You never
see the 15-foot shot. You never
see the things that are actually
the staple that wins games for
you. It's all about highlight film,.
highlight reel. That's fun.' I un-
derstand that. But Arron gets it.
Arron defends."

it's a pain he's willing to accept since the

our ultimate goal. It's just an unbelievable op-
portunity because not everybody gets to play
in the Final Four."
For No. 1 seed UF (33-5) and No. 2 seed
UCLA (30-5), however, Final Four berths seem
like they're becoming a regular occurrence.
On Saturday night; UCLA will make its
17th Final Four appearance and its first back-
to-back appearance since 1975-76.
The Bruins hope to advance to the cham-
pionship game and increase their record 11
titles.
"The history of their program is great but
we're trying to build our own legacy here,"
Junior Al Horford said.
Lately, the Gators haven't done too bad of
a job.
UF has reached the semifinals four times
since 1994, only one of four schools to do so.
During the last three years, UF is 20-1
in postseason play, which includes three
Southeastern Conference Tournament titles
and one national championship last season.
"What they've done all season, with the
bull's-eye squarely on the chests, is amazing,"
UCLA coach Ben Howland said. "They're the
best team in college basketball. They've im-
proved from a year ago. It's a daunting chal-
lenge. They handled us a year ago."
While the Gators scarcely made a mis-
take in their 73-57 victory against UCLA in
the championship game last season, the UF
frontcourt's solid performance helped put the
Gators over the top.
Noah dominated, the .floor, scoring 16
points, grabbing nine rebounds and blocking
six shots.


Meanwhile, Horford tallied 14 points,
seven boards and two blocks.
"They're the best big-man tandem I can
remember," Howland said. "I can't remember
one that good on any team. They're both very
good passers. Big-time shot-blockers. Very un-
selfish. They're all about winning."
If any program should know about quality
post players, it's UCLA, who featured two re-
cord-setting players more than 30 years ago.
"It's always great to have a quality big
man," Howland said. "In my office, looking
at (Kareem-Abdul) Jabbar and Bill Walton.
Two (of the) best big men to ever play college
basketball."
While in college, Jabbar, then Lew Alcindor,
earned Player of the Year twice and played on
three championship teams.
Walton entered the program one year af-
ter Alcindor's departure and was voted the
Naismith College Player of the Year three
years in a row while leading UCLA to two
national titles.
The duo's reputation is something the
Gators aspire to reach.
"Hopefully if we win another one people
will be talking about us one day, too," Noah
said. "That's what I love about winning the
most.
"People can talk bad about you all they
want but if you win a national championship,
'He's a champ.' There's nothing more you can
say."
The Gators are starting to learn about how
legacy affects the way teams approach playing
them.
"Legacy doesn't help you win basketball

national championship game. Do you think
Butler and Purdue cared about (our title)?
That doesn't mean anything. They just want-
ed to keep their season going, and they didn't
want to go home."
UCLA certainly doesn't want to go home
empty-handed again.
"No one was happy with the season we
had last year, especially with the effort we dis-
played in that final game," Bruins guard Arron
Afflalo said. "That's going to be in the minds
in our players. We want to beat Florida."

BROTHERLY LOVE


By JENNA MARINA


UF star shares special bond with sibling


before forward Corey Brewer set foot in the O'Dome
to dazzle orange- and blue-clad spectators ...
Before he ever set foot in the Georgia Dome to
win two Southeastern Conference titles ...
There was his Thunder Dome.
Surrounded by tobacco and cornfields in the small
town of Portland, Tenn., Brewer and his older brother,
Jason Rogan, spent their time playing sports with the
neighborhood kids.
So when Brewer's father, Ellis, mounted a rim at-
tached to a wooden board in their backyard, the Brewer
house became the hot spot.
"All the kids used to come play," Rogan said. "We
named it the Thunder Dome. There were rocks and bot-
tles and everything out there, but we had a lot of fun."
The kids played on a dirt court, but one summer day,
when Brewer was about 9 years old, the Thunder Dome
got an upgrade.
A man working a concrete job had cement to spare, so
he paved a slab over the dirt court.
"After that, we thought we were playing in Madison
Square Garden," Rogan said.
Brewer has come a long way since his Thunder Dome
days the forward scored 20 points combined in the
Garden last season against Wake Forest and Syracuse
- and when the junior enters the Georgia Dome on


Saturday for the Final Four, he has one person to thank
more than anybody else for his successes his big
brother.
They're five years apart, but no age difference could
break the bond Brewer and Rogan possess.
The pair shared a room in their tiny country home and
slept on bunk beds.
Brewer coveted the top bunk, so one night Rogan let
his younger brother have his wish.
But when Brewer fell from the top during the middle
of the night, his mother insisted he sleep on the bottom.
Much to the brothers' protest, their mother used to tell
them to ocean their room.
Instead of working collaboratively, the boys found
another way to divvy up the work.
"We'd go outside and play one-on-one, and whoever
lost had to clean the room," Rogan said. "I used to beat
him all the time, so I made him do all the chores. When he
got older, he caught up with me."
Brewer was a sophomore in high school the first time
he bested his brother, but it took about 11 years of practice
to earn the victory.
Brewer was an avid baseball fan until he was 5 years
old. That's when Rogan introduced him to the hard-
wood.
"I didn't used to like basketball," Brewer said. "But he


loved it. He could tell you where every player played col-
lege probably even high school. He used to make me
play every day."
Throughout their youth, the brothers played for hours,
and when the sun would start to set, they turned on a
small light to illuminate the night and continued to play
until'3 in the morning.
The time the boys dedicated to the court paid off.
Rogan dominated Portland basketball, breaking all
the records as a Purple Panther before earning a spot on
Tennessee-Chattanooga's roster. After Rogan graduated,
Brewer swooped in and claimed the records as his own.
"It used to motivate me a lot because he used to al-
ways tell me that no one would ever break his records,"
Brewer said. "I laughed at him (after)."
The only record Rogan still holds is dunks in a season,
but that one was almost seized, too. At 108 dunks, Brewer
fell six short.
Brewer slammed his first dunk in the eighth grade,
and by ninth grade the swingman was slamming regu-
larly.
"My brother used to get on me saying, 'You can't
dunk, you can't dunk,' so it felt good," Brewer said.
The brothers would test their limits by putting a rim
on top of an old tree, but Rogan got the best of it before
Brewer had a chance. I
"The tree was like 11-feet tall, so we always tried to
dunk it all the time," Rogan said. "One time I got lucky
and got it, but the tree kind of fell down."
When Brewer trekked to his backyard court this sum-
mer, he returned a hero. The dose-knit town threw a
welcome-home party for its national champion, complete
with all the fixings. The group feasted on chicken, ham-
burgers, hot dogs, ribs, macaroni and cheese and pork
chops Brewer's favorite.
But the dinner wouldn't be complete without a show.
"Corey came home (running his mouth) so I said, 'OK,
I can still beat you,'" Rogan said. "So we went to the back-
yard and played a couple games and everybody came to
watch us play."
Rogan won.
"I taught him how to play basketball, so he'll never be
able to beat me, no matter how good he is," he said.
The rest of the summer continued in this manner
when Rogan moved to Gainesville. The brothers enlisted
Joakim Noah, Al Horford, Taurean Green and some of the
other Gators to play pickup games.
Although the teams switched up every day, Brewer
and Rogan usually ended up on different teams.
"He guarded me a lot," Rogan said. "He talked a lot of
trash. I had a layup one time and he came from nowhere
and blocked it. He pinned it against the backboard, so he
let me know about that one. He said, 'Man, you're getting
old.' He said I can't jump no more, so I said, Ill get you
back.'"
And Rogan did sort of.
"I blocked him, but he called a foul," Rogan said with
a laugh.
No matter how much the brothers compete with each
other, their love is always apparent.
Rogan moved to Florida and took a job at a lo-
cal YMCA in order to look out for Brewer when
he decided stay in school rather than jump to
the NBA. Rogan has attended the majority of the
games,.and always -proiri ". ;.. r. hi. .
younger brother after the buzzer sounds.
"You never play good when it comes to him,"
Brewer said. "He always thinks there's something
you could have worked on or there's something
you should have done in the game."
Rogan bugs him, but Brewer is .thankful for
his older brother's presence since his other family
members live more than 600 miles away.
Brewer's mother, along with about half of
Portland, was in attendance when UF traveled to
Vanderbilt.
"Every single time we play in the state of
Tennessee, Corey has like 150 people there," Noah
said.
She was there to see her son cut down the nets
in Atlanta and was there to receive his hugs and
kisses in St. Louis after the Gators advanced to
the Final Four. No matter how much he loves his
mother, the one person Brewer wants sitting in the
stands the most is-at home in a living room illumi-
nated by the glow of a television set. In addition to
heart trouble and diabetes, Ellis Brewer has under-
gone three amputations on his left leg.
Brewer flew to Tennessee in late November
when his father had to be hospitalized for two
days for breathing problems related to fluid
buildup in his chest.
"It's been a hard six months for our dad,"
Rogan said. "But Daddy's doing really good. He's

getting around a little bit better now."
Still, the former farmer and trash collector has not
worked in more than a year.
"We do all right," Rogan said. "We pay our bills.
Maybe he can overlook somebody, but I doubt he'll be
able to work again."
Ellis may not be well enough to attend any of Corey's
games, but he never misses a single minute.
Before game time, Ellis experiments with ingredients
in the kitchen and whips up a meal in time for tipoff.
"That's his two favorite things to do watch Corey
on TV and cook food," Rogan said. "It eases his mind
when he cooks."
When Saturday night's game ends, Brewer will call his
father like he always does.
It's been a trying six months for the junior, but with his
brother by his side, he's been able to enjoy his second run
of success just as much as his father has.
"It's good because he knows what's going on with
(our father)," Brewer said. "He kind of helps me cope
with it."

Gators care little for storied past of UCLA CiWMW Pmdal


H ow fast things have
changed in college bas-
ketball.
There was a time when four
simple letters, U-C-L-A, would
instill fear.
To the Gators, these letters rep-
resent nothing more than the next
obstacle en route to repeating as
national champions.
UF players were overloaded
with questions this week about
their knowledge of UCLA's storied
program, which has an NCAA-re-
cord 17 Final Four appearances.
None even flinched.
"I know about the history of
UCLA's program," UF forward
Chris Richard said. "But I don't care
about it."
Before last season, the team in a
city full of stars was college basket-
ball's brightest.
But after crushing the Bruins in
the championship game and return-
ing all five starters, the Gators are
now the headliner, the standard of
excellence in this Final Four.
John Wooden once led UCLA to
seven consecutive championships.
The Wizard of Westwood doesn't
scare these Gators. They either don't
know him or don't care about him.
"Is he' that old dude?" said UF
guard Walter Hodge.


He's one
of many
old dudes,
Walter, who
are for-
Antonio ever etched
Gonzalez among the
Going Going Gonzo greats in col-
agonzalez@alligator.org lege basket-
ball history.
Kareem
Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Walton are
more old dudes who made UCLA
the premier program in the nation.
But that was then, this is now.
The Gators enter the Final
Four the favorite, the team with
three players Joakim Noah, Al
Horford and Corey Brewer who
threw millions back at the NBA to
establish themselves among the
elite on the college hardwood.
"We know UCLA has their lega-
cy," Horford said. "But this is about
us trying to establish our legacy."
There isn't much basketball his-
tory at UF.
This set of Gators is the only one
to ever win a national champion-
ship.
And there's a short list of great
UF players, none of which have
reached feats like Kareem and
Walton.
The Gators have an opportunity


to match history this weekend, and
continue to establish the school
among college basketball's elite.
Winning all this again would do
more wonders for UF and college
basketball than last year's title.
Billy Donovan would have no
choice but to return (as if he would
leave anyway). And the Gators
would solidify themselves as the
21st century's team, which can only
make the program stronger.
But even better, this group of UF
players can help college basketball.
Another title could entice more
young phenoms to do what they
did stay in college.
This weekend is all about F-L-O-
R-I-D-A, and what it can do to build
its own tradition.
UCLA is a thing of the past, for
now, and the Gators have a chance
to change the college basketball
landscape.
"Hopefully if we win another
one," Noah said, "people will be
talking about us one day."
Indeed they would.
Not quite the way they used to
talk about UCLA, but close.
UF has a chance to become the
new standard of basketball excel-
lence a thing once reserved for
UCLA, but part of newfound tradi-
tions brewing in Gainesville.

RoXd to tiE Fin&al Four


UF 80 Kansas 82-1h was the Gators' first loss of the season,
and dethroned them from their No 1 ranking ri the only
overtime game of UF's season. The majority of the 8,500 at
Las Vegas' Orleans Arena were rooting for the Jayhawks and
made the neutral site more like a road game.


November 25
vs Kansas


UF 66 Florida State 70-Watching your rival rusn thf
court isn't what you want to see. The champs played
u- inspired and were defeated by a more aggressive
Seminoles squad. Less than two weeks after the
Kansas loss, UF struggled again and trailed for nearly
the whole game.


December 3
at Florida State


December 23
vs Ohio State


UF 94 Tennessee 78-The only scary thing about
this win was when forward Core Brewer fell to the
ground clutching his knee with less than a minute
left. Brewer would be fine, and the Gators added
another win to their conference total.


February 10
at Kentucky


UF 76 Tennessee 86-it was the Gators' second-straight loss and third in four
games. It was ugly, too. UF was down Dy 19 at halftime. 50-31, and it took a
massive second-half rally to even make it respectable. In a game that featured
Volunteers women's coach Pat Summitt in a cheerleading outfit, everything went
Tennessee's way.


UF 77 Arkanas 56-The Gators claimed their third-straight tournament
crown in style. They led by 8 at halftime and continued to pile it on in
the second half, outscoring the Razorbacks 41-28. Joakim Noah and Al
Horford continued to show why they comprise one of the best frontcourts
in the nation, combing for 35 points, 20 rebounds and rive blocks.


March 16
Jackson State-NCAA Tournament
First Round


UF 74 Purdue 67-You just can't stop the jump hook. The
Gators turned to Al Horford and his signature shot down
the stretch to fend off pesky Purdue 74-67 in New Orleans.
Horford finished with 17 points and nine rebounds as UF
advanced to the Sweet 16. In the second half, he didn't miss,
hitting the team's final three field goals to help the Gators
overcome a 31-29 halftime deficit.

Oregon-Elite Eight


1F fLCOU0-Well, that was embarrassing. Buckeyes.
Thie (tors dominated in every facet of the game, and Al
Horford, playing through a nigh-ankle sprain, beat up OSU
with 11 points in the second half and also grabbed 11
rebounds. UF shot more than 71 percent in the second
half and finished shooung 59 percent.


February 3
vs. Tennessee


UF 64 Kentucky 61-After building a 14-point first-half lead, the Gators nearly
blew it. As Corey Brewer put it 'We made some bad plays at the end, golly."
Wildcats guard Ramel Bradley missed a 3-pointer as time expired as the Gators
held on for the defining win. It was the fifth consecutive win against Kentucky,
and UF is me first team in 30years to complete such a feat


February 27

Arkansas-SEC.
Championship


UF 112 Jackson State 69-The Tigers never stood a chance. Yes, they kept it
close in the first half, but they just weren't strong enough to handle the Gators'
size and athleticism. Even reserve Cnrls Richard got in on the action, scoring a
career-high 17 points and hitting 5 of 6 shots from the field.


March 18
Purdue-NCAA Tournament
Second Round


UF 85 Oregon 77-The champions were just too deep for the
Ducks. The Gators' backcourt of Taurean Green and Lee Humphrey
scorched the nets and combined for 44 points and 11 3-polnters. On
one of Humpty's threes. the ball swished through the hoop, so hard
the netting snapped off the rim.

Underrated Green bears



weight of expectations


By LOUIS ANASTASIS

If there is one thing Taurean Green has
learned as a three-year point guard of the
Gatojs it is this: Steer dear of Coach Billy
Donovan after hoisting., an ill-advised 3-
pointer.
"I try not to look over there (after I take
shots)," Green joked.
No. 1 seed UF which plays UCLA in
the Final Four on


Saturday prob-
ably wouldn't be
chasing another
national champion-
ship were it not for
Green, who aver-
ages a team-high
13.3 points.
Earlier this
week, Bruins coach
Ben Howland called
him the most under-


laugh with each other, and I also can get on
him," Donovan said.
Added Green: "It's been a learning
experience, the past two years. During
previous years I would mess up and some-
times he would get on me. He's just done
a great job of teaching me, bringing me in
watching film.. He'll call a play and if I see
something else, he'll allow me to make an
adjustment and go with what I see."
Most of the time, Donovan has little rea-
son to scold Green. He has scored in double


I JUST ENJOY PLAYING

different talents. It's just a joy being
able to play with them. I appreciate

rated point guard in America.
Although Green has exceeded every-
one's expectationr at UF, he still makes
mistakes.
Like UF's regular-season game against
Tennessee when he turned three elemen-,
tary passes into turnovers during a brief
second-half stretch
Don,'\ an isn't shy in pointing out these
deficiencies.
He. places more expectations on Green
than any other player on the team. He has
screamed in Green's face and will some-
times resort to public acts of frustration
shoed Green commit a turnover or, of
course, launch a forced 3-pointer.
But the point guard is not Donovan's
scapegoat as he is an outlet for coaching.
Donovan was once known as "Billy the
Kid," Providence's lovable point who led
the Friars to the 1987 Final Four.
Because of his point guard roots,
Donovan feels a special bond with Green
that allows him to be personal without
coming off as cruel.
"I would say he and I have a very close
relationship because we can joke around,

averaged 3.25 turnovers.
Green, regarded by teammates as an
energetic goofball who is always amped
for 6 a.m. workouts, consulted with his
roommates Al Horford, Joakim Noah
and Corey Brewer. After several late-night
conversations and game-film sessions,
Green realized he had been pressing and
altered his approach.
"I just think it's been a matter of calming
down and taking what the defense gives
me," he said.
The burning question is if he will join
his roommates, should they jump to-the
NBA during the offseason.
The upcoming draft is loaded; ESPN
ranks Green as the No. 74 overall prospect
and predicts him as a marginal second-
round pick. On the flip side, Green would
likely have a tough time improving his
stock as a senior playing with inexperi-
enced underclassmen next season.
"I just enjoy playing with these guys,"
Green said. "We all have different person-
alities, different talents. It's just a joy being
able to play with them. I appreciate it now,
and I'm sure I'll appreciate it later on."
