Gators top Buckeyes

"We're the best team to ever play college basketball," UF for-
ward Corey Brewer said.
UF (35-4) did the improbable. It returned its juniors in an age
when NBA money is hip. It avoided injuries and pressure during
a long-winded season. It deflected criticism and the bull's-eye
spinning it all into a boulder and hurling it toward Ohio State.

hurled it toward the dirt in a full nelson.

Your 2006 hoops champs? That would be UF, which began the
season unranked but ended it with more momentum than a run-
away Mack truck, defeating UCLA 73-57 in the title game.
Your 2006 football champs? They would be the Gators, de-
nounced as underdogs by the media and consequently motivated
to massacre the Buckeyes 41-14 on Jan 8.
Your 2007 hoops champs? Yes, there's a pattern here. UF has be-
come the Roman Empire of college sports. The Gators have made
the Buckeyes feel something like the Buffalo Bills during their ha-
bitual Super Bowl losing to the Dallas Cowboys in the early 90s.
"There was so much doubting, so much hate all season," UF
forward Joakim Noah said. "Now youi can say whatever you want

ketball championships since Duke did so in 1991-92 and just the
second since UCLA did so in 1972-73.
UF is the first team to ever repeat as champions with an identi-
cal starting lineup.
The Gators are the first program in sports history to hold the
football and basketball championships simultaneously and the
first to win both during the same academic semester.
"This might not happen again for 50 years," said former Ohio
State receiver Anthony Gonzalez, who was part of the national
championship beatdown three months ago.

Candidates use MySpace
By LYDIA FERNANDEZ
Alligator Contributing Writer
Presidential candidate Chris Dodd is trying
to gain an edge on his campaign by adding his
"Dodd Pod" to his MySpace profile. Users can
click on a banner on his profile to view and recom-
mend songs for his iPod playlist.
Other contenders have made their own pages
on the social networking Web site as part of its
new Impact Channel. MySpace introduced the
channel, devoted to politics and focused on the
2008 presidential election, on March 18.
It contains a collection of links to voter registra-
tion Web sites, as well as to the personal MySpace
pages of presidential candidates.
Eleven other contenders Hillary Clinton,
Joe Biden, John Edwards, John McCain,-Dennis
Kucinich, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Barack Obama,
Rudy Giuliani, Bill Richardson and Duncan
Hunter have their own MySpace campaigns.
Diana T. Cohen, a UF political science doctoral
student, said contenders are promoting them-
selves on the Web site because it is inexpensive
and their fellow candidates are doing it, too.
"Campaigns try to get an edge in any way
possible, and although unproven, this may serve
as a unique way for candidates to reach out to
the wired younger generation," she wrote in an
MySpacers can also add candidates to their
friends list. As of Monday evening, Clinton had
7,478 friends on her official profile and more than
33,000 on her unofficial one. Obama, however, cur-
rently leads the MySpace race, with 89,085 friends
on his profile as of Monday evening.
"Since MySpace browsers have to
seek out candidate profiles, it's tough
to imagine that finding political infor-
mation would be on the minds of a
great number of MySpace users."
Diana T. Cohen
UF political science doctoral student
Although users are adding candidates as
friends, Cohen doesn't think the new MySpace
section will drive many to vote.
The Web site has the potential to help younger
members learn about politics, but it probably only
reaches those who already have an interest in the
race, she said.
"Since MySpace browsers have to seek out can-
didate profiles, it's tough to imagine that finding
political information would be on the minds of a
great number of MySpace users," Cohen said.

Ticket lottery starts Wed.
By JOEY CHINDAMO
and LAUREN YONTEF
Now that basketball season's over, all
eyes are back on UF's other defending na-
tional champion the football team.
The student ticket lottery for the 2007
football season will start Wednesday at 6
p.m. and run through April 13, according to
the GatorZone Web site.
Student season tickets will cost $70, or $10
for each home game the same price as last
season. Students must prepay for the season
tickets, but if they aren't selected in the lot-
tery, they'll receive a full refund, according
to the Web site.
Though more students may be interested
in seeing the Gators defend their gridiron
title, there won't be an increase in the num-
ber of student tickets available.
"Gator athletics are at a high right now,"
said Mark Gajda, the UF Student Ticket
Office manager. "Students are excited to go
to our events, and we are naturally going to
see an increase in enthusiasm and game at-
Gajda said students get 21,500 of the
88,548 available seats in Ben Hill Griffin
The office expects about 30,000 students
to enter the lottery, he said, and the students
with the most credit hours will have the best
chance at getting tickets.
"There's absolutely nothing like
being at a football game in the
Matt DeLoatche, a UF architecture junior,
said he plans to enter the lottery and doesn't
think the recent success of the basketball
team overshadows the football team's.
"If anything, it'll make people have high-
er expectations of the football team, since
historically, Florida's been a football school,"
he said. "But that seems to be changing."
The upcoming season will be the last
for DeLoatche as an undergraduate, but he
hopes he'll be able to come to football games
as an alumnus.
"I would still love to be able to go to the
games," he said. "There's absolutely nothing
like being at a football game in the Swamp."
New club helps kids

Alligator Contributing Writer

Cleft lip or palate, congenital facial
deformities, can make it difficult for
children to speak or eat.
A new group on campus is trying
to help those children.
Gator Smiles is a club that raises
money for Love Without Boundaries,
a national organization that provides
health care to orphaned children in
China with facial deformities. The
national group assigns UF's club chil-
dren to sponsor.
"Depending on the medical issue,
we raise anywhere from $400 to $550,"
said UF junior Stephanie Uhazie, the
group's president. "This covers the
costs of the actual surgery."
The first of their two largest
fundraisers this semester is a con-
cert tonight at the Shamrock Irish
Restaurant & Pub at 9 p.m.

were free, so we're making 100 per-
cent profit from the $5 cover," Uhazie

vice president of the group. "We're an
organization that does something for
the greater good."

Gators group in O'Dome to cheer on second win

After hours of waiting outside
the O'Connell Center in the hot
April sun with orange and blue
body paint on his chest 'and arms,
UF freshman Greg Burr was ready
to watch the Gators men's basket-
ball team bring home another cham-
"I've sweated more in the last

Burr and the 11,221 students and
Gators fans who joined him at the
center did not wait in vain.

Students and supporters cheered
as they watched the game on the
jumbo TV screens in all four covers
of the arena.
Burr and a group of friends said
they were the first students to claim
spots outside the center at 9 a.m. By
5:30 p.m. they had developed a nas-
ty sunburn, and more than 200 eager
fans had lined up behind them.
Former UF quarterback Chris

UF students and fans gather at the O'Connell Center on Monday night to support the men's basketball
team as they play Ohio State University for the national championship in Atlanta.
In line, fans played cards on the
ground and cheered as they waited
for the doors to open.
While they waited for the game
to begin, the basketball court
echoed with the thunder of stomp-
ing students, the swish of waving
streamers and the crack of the Gator
Chomp. Students clad in orange and
blue shirts and jerseys and white
"Billy-Ball" T-shirts waved "Go
Gators" signs and held a banner
reading "Ohio State = Gator Bait."
As players stormed the court in
Atlanta, the Gainesville audience
cheered the Gators and booed the
Though the Buckeyes started
with a small lead, the Gators soon
dominated. Early in the game, UF
forward Corey Brewer was elbowed
and fell to the court in agony. But
when Brewer returned to his feet,
the crowd exploded with a deafen-
"This has been the best
end to the best year ever.
Two championships in a
row it's amazing."
In the second half, loud ap-
plause came from the crowd
when Buckeyes center Greg
Oden attempted but failed
- to block UF center Al Horford.
With the victory, UF became the first
team to repeat as basketball national
champions since Duke University
did it in the early '90s.
After the game, the crowd rushed
out of the arena chanting, "It's great
to be a Florida Gator."
UF freshman Lolade Agboola
said, "This has been the best end to
the best year ever. Two champion-
ships in a row ---it's amazing."

A sports nation
...with an academic
W e knew w would have hangovers today regardless
of the outcome of last night's game, and we're will-
ing to bet that a lot of our readers do. So we'll keep
it light today.
When UF President Bernie Machen spent big money think-
ing of his new motto, the highly acclaimed, widely adored "The
University of Florida: The Foundation for the Gator Nation,"
we didn't think much of it. Yeah, it sounds a little ridiculous
- and just a tad imperialistic but we're sure Bernie meant
And then came that gem of cinematography, the infamous
"Go Gators" commercial. You know, the businessman tells
the doctor to go cure cancer, and she tells the little girl to go to
Mars, and she says "Go Gators!" even though she's sitting in the
Shands waiting room. At least she has a good attitude about her
terminal bone disease.
Of course, when people say "Go Gators," most people think
of our sports. teams. Our football team has been high-profile
and successful for years and has a loyal contingent of fans. And
recently our basketball team has joined them. Add to that the
thriving gymnastics, tennis, baseball and swimming teams to
name just. a few and UF holds its share of championships.
But none of this is thanks to Bernie. Since he became presi-
dent in fall 2003, he's pushed to get UF a spot on the list of top-
10 public research universities.
However, he's hit several roadblocks: the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences budget deficit debacle and the Florida
Legislature's prevention of any tuition increases. He could
even blame the particularly bad hurricane season of fall 2004.
And if State Senate and House bills regarding the "Academic
Enhancement Program" don't pass, Bernie might blame the
rashness of the Faculty Senate for denying former Gov. Jeb Bush
an honorary degree.
Even Gator Growl just announced its theme for next year is
"Nation of Champions," saying it will highlight UF's successes
on and off the field. Well, kinda. Gator Growl is a pep rally held
the night before the homecoming football game. What are the
people who attend focusing on? Chemistry and calculus? Or
kicking some ass the next day? Seems like UF just can't shed its
reputation of a sports school with a drinking ahem, academic
And of course, thousands of students hoped that classes
would be cancelled today, so they could stay up partying until
the wee hours of the morning and not get in trouble for missing
that 7:25 a.m. lab. But Bemie shows his commitment to aca-
demic excellence by steadfastly refusing to cancel classes after
But this isn't Bernie's fault. When he accepted the position as
president, how could he have known that UF would dominate
the NCAA arena, making the Gators and UF a household name
around the country? And thousands of Gator hopefuls apply to
UF because of our recent championships. But UF is still admit-
ting the same number of new students. Sure, better students are
coming to UF we just hope it's not for the wrong reasons.
Unfortunately, we all still need to balance our time spent study-
ing with our time spent celebrating.
Wait, what are we saying? We don't need an excuse to drink
on a weeknight. All these sports just make us feel less guilty
about it. So thank you, basketball team, for giving 48,000 stu-
dents a reason to party it up.
Sthe independent florida
ouch-screen votingmachines must go
Touch-screen voting machines must go
With the end of the semester finally approaching,
it's becoming increasingly difficult for me to be
cynical. So I must point out how Gov. Charlie
Crist has proven himself to be an agreeable, trustworthy
Republican when I thought they didn't exist anymore.
Crist has been pushing to have the touch-screen voting
machines in 15 Florida counties replaced with optical scan-
ning voting machines. Jokes about Florida's Election Day
issues aside, Crist has showed that he actually cares about
the democratic process unlike most of his Republican
peers. The optical voting machines scan paper ballots and
record votes. They leave a paper trail, unlike touch-screen
machines, which record the votes electronically.
Those counties in Florida and around the country
acquired touch-screen voting machines despite public
outrage about the lack of accountability and the fact that
they leave no paper trail. These election officials displayed
a profound disregard for democracy. It should have been
obvious to election supervisors that spending millions on
machines that don't leave a paper trail wouldn't solve the
problems from the 2000 elections.
It seems like it was part of a larger conspiracy by the
Bush team to ensure victories for Republican candidates.
Diebold is the company that makes these touch-screen ma-
chines, and according to The Nation magazine, chief execu-
tive officer Walden O'Dell-is a major contributor to George
W. Bush and other Republican candidates. Coincidence?
The machines had numerous problems when they were
first introduced. They posed the possibilities of voter fraud
or error and of machine malfunctions. It's possible that cer-
tain votes were discarded altogether.
Four of the 15 counties that have adopted touch-screen
machines in Florida include Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm
Beach and Hillsborough. These four counties are home to
54 percent of the state's voters. You would think the elec-
tions supervisors and county officials would have had
enough sense to fend off the lobby-
ists who convinced them to opt for
touch-screen machines instead of
But, of course, the supervisors
sat back in a slothlike manner and
let their respective counties spend
millions. Here's the kicker: The
optical scanning machines were
cheaper. The whole affair screams
election fraud a la Katherine
State House Speaker Marco Rubio, a Republican, dis-
agrees because he doesn't think the state should spend
$30 million to replace the touch-screen machines because
the counties chose them on their own accord. Granted,
the county officials in question were morons, but the state
shouldn't wash its hands of the problem. Apparently the
cost of legitimate elections is too high for Rubio, but I wasn't
aware that any price is too high for democracy. Hundreds of
thousands of voters in Florida have lost faith in the election
process due to the stolen 2000 elections.
The state Senate has backed Crist's plan, and many influ-
ential Republicans have gotten behind it. But the House has
remained silent on the issue, saying that $30 million would
be spent unnecessarily in a tight budget year. Meanwhile,
Crist has shown himself to be above partisan quibbling by
attempting to restore our faith in the electoral process.
The move by Crist to have the touch-screen machines
replaced is one of many that makes it increasingly difficult
to dislike him because of his party affiliation he's actu-
ally successfully narrowed the chasm between the two par-
ties. Hopefully, Florida voters will regain some confidence
about their voices being heard.

Good sportsmanship discourages booing
I am troubled about the recent trend to-
ward booing our opponents and even our
own players during sporting events. I was
embarrassed when boos from Florida fans
were broadcast around the world in the Final
Four telecasts this weekend.
Back in my day, booing was reserved for
heinous calls by referees or nasty behavior by
opponents. In high school I was taught that
good sportsmanship prohibited demeaning
our opponents. We honored the efforts made
by all participants. Respect for opposing
teams, their coaches and the officials reflected
respect for ourselves. We were not obliged to
admire opponents or agree with officials but
to react with class and dignity.
Surely we have reasons to be proud.
We have a stellar academic institution with
- well, is there a more distinguished sports
program? We do not need to boo like poor
losers. Let's add honorable, sportsmanlike
behavior to UF's principles. Then in our pride
for our athletes and fellow Gators fans we can
proclaim without embarrassment that it's
great to be a Florida Gator!
Ethnic diversity is important for UF
To quote Vince Vaughn in the movie
"Wedding Crashers," Patrick Barrett's column
on Monday was "Erroneous! Erroneous on
No. 1: The definition of racism is the belief
that race accounts for differences in human
character or ability and that a particular race
is superior to others. The definition of rac-
ism is not, as Mr. Barrett said, "when you do
something solely because of someone's race."
Therefore, if UF recruits minorities more than
whites, it might be an attempt to diversify our
school, but it is not racist.
No. 2: Ethnic diversity is never irrelevant.
UF President Bernie Machen said great uni-
versities require diversity. And Debra Walker
King, the associate provost of faculty devel-
opment, said that diversity is for the sake of
excellence. These ideas are not new.
All of Barrett's columns about race have
been followed by letters refuting his ludicrous
statements and ignorant opinions. It's time he
found a topic he can actually handle.
UF's diversity push doesn't make it racist
I have a couple of thoughts on the di-
versity debate that has been featured in
recent Alligator editions. Webster's Online
Dictionary lists two definitions for "racism":
(1) "The prejudice that members of one race
are intrinsically superior to members of other
races," and (2) "Discriminatory or abusive be-
havior towards members of another race."
According to those definitions, looking to
increase cultural diversity on UF's campus by
recruiting minority faculty and staff is not rac-
ist. What can be considered racist is the ideol-
ogy presented in letters to the editor arguing
that hiring minority faculty is equivalent to
hiring inferior or subpar faculty. Why is it that
minorities are associated with a lower level
of performance compared to their majority
It is ideas such as these that make UF an
unwelcoming and hostile environment for mi-
norities. People fail to understand that actively
recruiting qualified minority faculty does not
imply someone will receive a job solely due to
the color of his or her skin.
If UF did an adequate job of ensuring that
all of its faculty, staff and students were treated
equally, fairly and respectfully, the need to
increase cultural diversity would not exist

because the numbers of minorities on campus
would not be so paltry.
SG should keep out of partisan politics
As a recent UF graduate, I want to express
my extreme disappointment at a recent ac-

SG paid for an ad in the Alligator expressing
student support for Israel. I am appalled that
SG believed this overt political statement to be
an appropriate use of student funds. SG has no
mandate to express opinions on global politics.
According to its Web site, SG is "committed to

So were many on the news staff, who dis-
covered it the same time you did when they
opened the paper and read it. That's because
the newsroom has no idea what the advertis-
ing department plans to run on any given day.
This is done on purpose so that money doesn't
talk through the news..
There is a "glass wall" between the news
and advertising departments at the Alligator,
as with any credible newspaper. It's as impor-
tant to journalists as the separation of church
and state is to the U.S. goverment.Think of
the ethical issues that would arise if adver-
tising clients started asking for stories about
them in return for their business. Imagine
reporters giving advertisers discounts in ex-
change for news tips. It's a slippery slope, and
any dabbling in such dealings would destroy
a publication's credibility.
At the Alligator, such separation entails
a strict code of conduct for the staff of both
departments. They can't talk about each
other's content or work. They have cear of-
fice boundaries and keep different hours. The
advertising folks end their day when the news
staff straggles in at about 5 p.m. We do share

After striving to live up to expectations, the
Gators proved their worth and solidified their spot
in college basketball history. After six months of

UF senior Matt LaPorta will lead the Gators into tonight's game against Florida State in Jacksonville. Six weeks ago,
the Seminoles blew out the Gators, but UF has gotten hot of late with seven straight wins.
The matchup will include two of the
nation's prominent sluggers LaPorta and
FSU junior Tony Thomas Jr.
LaPorta has been named SEC Player of
the Week in consecutive weeks for his per-
formances in sweeps against Auburn and
Georgia and also won Louisville Slugger's National Player
of the Week for his four home runs against the Bulldogs.
Thomas garnered ACC and National Player of the Week
honors for his play against North Florida and Duke.
For LaPorta, the rivalry and matchup with Thomas
"It's just another game, just another time for me to go
out and have some fun and play baseball," he said.
Freshman Clint Franklin (0-1, 7.36 ERA) will make his
second collegiate start for the Gators against FSU sopho-
more Caleb Graham (1-1, 1.90 ERA).
The start will be a big test for the freshman, as FSU (29-
2, 8-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) is one of the best hitting
teams in the nation.
Although it's tough not to get caught up in the hype of
the game, LaPorta thinks more in the big picture.
"We're always trying to raise the bar with our team be-
cause we have a lot of young guys and people playing a lot
of positions," he said. "So each game we just focus on get-
ting better and better, and hopefully at the end of the year
we'll be in contention."

UF Basketball Pep Band is there for the team
With only a few minutes left to go in
the NCAA regional championship game,
two UF students pulled out their secret
weapons and brought their group's play to
its high point.
Jay Jacobs led trumpet player Chris Hef-
fner and the rest of the Florida Basketball
Pep Band in a rousing rendition of Paul
Simon's "Call Me Al." After the team's win,
the band followed with "We Are The Boys
of Old Florida."
"It was nice to hear it fill the room and
bounce off the walls of the stadium," said
Jacobs, who is one of two doctoral students
in the College of Fine Arts who assist in
conducting the pep band. "It is usually
played only for football games, but we can
add basketball championships to that, too."
Three squads of 25 students both
music majors and nonmajors rotate
playing in the pep band for the team at
home games. They don't travel to regular
season away games, but they do travel to
the NCAA contest the big dance on the
chartered plane with the cheerleaders, daz-
zlers and basketball team members.
The band's job is an established tradi-
tion support UF and its athletic under-

the underdog and against the Gators this
year, Jacobs said the work was harder.
"As the defending champion, you kind
of have a big target on your back and it
makes your job different," Jacobs said.
"The players have a lot to think about,
obviously. While they are on the bench,
we try to do a little extra work to keep the
song in their ears and their spirits up."
One song that always gets Gator fans
going is "Call Me Al." CBS sportscasters

Donovan, players celebrate second championship with families
ATMOSPHERE, from page 1
Celebration. Oh, how adept these Gators
have become at celebration. As the buzzer
sounded, Al Horford chucked the basketball
higher than a major league pop fly.
Walter Hodge leapt into Chris Richard's
Assistant coach Larry Shyatt attacked UF
athletics director Jeremy Foley with a bear hug
capable of fracturing vertebrae.
Noah catapulted his black sneakers into the
crowd of 51,458.
Then the Gators remembered that standard
postgame procedure obliges the winner to
shake hands with the loser.
But the chaos ensued afterward.
Noah hopscotched through the fracas,
sidestepped the scorers table, careened
through sports writers, hopped the guard rail,
shuffled through an orange and blue tempest
and found mother Cecilia Rodhe.
The two hugged so sincerely, so vivaciously
that Noah left his mother trembling with tears
forming gentle streams through the creases of
"You have no words to describe this feel-
ing," Rodhe said. "It is between pleasure and
pain because it is so strong. Remember taking
Jo's hand and picking him up from basketball
when he was 6. This is beyond me. This is be-
yond life itself."
Meanwhile, nestled directly in the midst of
Ohio State's student section stood a cheering
52-year-old man who looked disturbingly out
He wore a T-shirt horizontally striped in
orange and blue as he gripped with his right
hand a similarly shaded pompom.
"We beat them in football and basketball
and they brought their girlfriends and wives
and we'll probably. take them too," said Jim
Rozier, who attended Gators football games as
a child in the '60s. "Florida should annex Ohio
because we own them."
UF's players eventually climbed aboard
the podium that anoints champions with a
"History two in a row!" Brewer ex-
claimed. "Maybe three in a row?"
The crowd began chanting "BILLY" for UF
coach Billy Donovan.
Donovan's father, Bill, swung his head back
and forth like the pendulum of a grandfather's
clock in its prime.
"It almost sounds like they were chanting,
'Reggie! Reggie!' at Yankee Stadium," Bill
Two scores of people ahead slouched
Christine Donovan, Billy's wife, who fought
"Nobody knows how much work and
sacrifice went into this," she said. "The good
Lord has blessed us every day and we thank
Him every day for this. This was much harder.
I'm so relieved."
And Foley he was weeping, too.
"They (Noah, Horford, Brewer) came back
for a reason," he said. "Exclamation point."
Where does this team rank among the
greats the UCLAs, the Kentuckys, the
"They're just very, very special as good
as anybody," said John Thompson, former
NCAA champion coach with Georgetown
and current CBS sportscaster. "What is special
is that their juniors stayed. And then the fact

that so many talented players played together
- Billy deserves all the credit because that's
not an easy thing to do."
Noah, Horford and Brewer may very well
bolt for the NBA. Yet you got the feeling their
ride was more than worth the price of admis-
"Tonight," Noah said, "was crazy."
Gators key on defending 3-point line
HOOPS, from page 10
Corey Brewer and Green each
sank a 3-point shot within a 2-min-
ute span to extend UF's lead to 11
points with nearly 4 minutes left
in the first half. Every time Ohio
State made a dent in UF's lead, the
Gators would either sink a 3-point
shot to put the game a little more
out of reach. The Gators did a stel-
lar job on defending the 3-point
line as well, limiting Ohio State to
4 from 23 behind the arc.
"It's not that we couldn't make
a three," Ohio State center Greg
Oden said. "We couldn't get over
that hump. We got that 11-point
deficit in the first half and we just
couldn't get over it."
The rest of the game played out
in the same manner. Humphrey,
who became the NCAA Tourney's
all-time 3-point leader Saturday
night, tied his
S son 3-pointers.
Men's Humphrey hit 4
Basketball of his 7 attempts
against UCLA to
113th 3-point shot. UF's frontcourt
was just as responsible for swing-
ing the momentum. Chris Richard
and Horford slammed dunks on
more than one occasion, altering
the noise in the arena to an ear-
splitting level. The Buckeyes relied
heavily on Oden, but not even the

GONZO, from page 10
be king, basketball now has as many championships
as the gridiron. UF isn't building basketball traditions
any more they're well established now.
Three Final Four appearances in eight years and
back-to-back NCAA Tournament titles are casting a
shadow from the O'Connell Center to the Swamp.
And it's all because of four players who decided
they would make history. Now it's Donovan who is
the face of UF athletics, not the football coach.
Donovan will earn more than Urban Meyer come
this week, whether at UF or Kentucky or the NBA.
Athletics Director Jeremy Foley's exuberance-
bear hugs and held-back tears-no doubt will tran-
scend into a 2-million-plus extension offer.
Did you ever think that would happen?
Donovan has four players to thank for it. Four who
challenged norms and what is thought to be right,
These four will be the reason future stats are
bounds were enough.
"They've got a bunch of weap-
ons," Oden said. "(Monday) they
were just on. They can shoot it,
they can drive, and they can score
inside. They are everything you
want in a team."
Brewer finished the game as
the Final Four's Most Outstanding
Player for his combined 32 points
and 10 rebounds.
"I'd give (the award) to each
and every one of my teammates
if I could break it apart," Brewer

judged. The grounds for the question "why not stay
in college basketball?"
And they know it.
"We proved it, man," Green said. "We proved
we're the best. No one can hate anymore."
So is this the end of UF's '04s, the best Gators team
All signs point to yes, but that's what we all
thought last year.
No matter what happens from here on out, this
group of Gators will forever be heralded as UF's finest
and one of the most historic in college basketball, too.
They gelled perfectly, each.the ideal complement
for the other. They came from different backgrounds,
under different economic circumstances and from dif-
ferent parts of the world. But between the lines you
would have never known.
They did what most wouldn't. And they accom-
plished what most never have. The '04s just complet-
ed the best two years in UF sports history.
Why not do it all again next year?

"The decision was never about us," Glenda said, holding back
tears. "It was about what was best for Corey. I can't say I knew this
would happen again. But, man, did it ever."
It was after last season's tournament title that Brewer and his
teammates -Joakim Noah, Al Horford and Taurean Green were
forced to decide between staying in college or opting for the NBA,
where a million-dollar contract awaited.
SBut they chose to stay, with the sole reason being Brewer, whose
finances didn't match that of his teammates.
If one went, they all would have, UF forward
Joakim Noah said.
"I love Corey," Noah said. "Staying at Florida
speaks volumes about the person he is."
Brewer's decision seems to have worked out
just fine. He was thought of as mostly a defensive
player.before this season, but used the extra time
to sharpen his skills.
Brewer Brewer developed 3-point range this year,
and exemplified it against the Buckeyes, convert-
ing three times in the first half from beyond the arc.

NBA Draft, should he choose to forego his senior season.
Brewer declined to speak about his future.
"I'm just going to enjoy this," he said. "That's the last thing on
But one thing that was talked about over and over by every-
one was the commitment Brewer made last April to his team >
and his school. Monday night, UF guard Taurean Green recounted
a meeting with Brewer after last season's title. Green said Brewer
never once spoke about himself -just what was best for his team.
"He made a sacrifice," Green said. "And it all paid off."
Flinging his arms in the air, Brewer cut his piece of the net during
the championship celebration.
No regrets here, he said.
"This is all I wanted," he shouted to teammates. "I'm taking this

Gators doom Buckeyes
with 3-point shooting
* UF HIT 10 SHOTS FROM BEYOND
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
ATLANTA Double team Al Horford,
Joakim Noah and Chris Richard and weep.
It's a plan doomed for disaster, the basket-
ball equivalent of suicide.
The Buckeyes tried it, failing miserably, of
course. The Gators, their guards open all game
long, zapped Ohio State with 10 3-pointers.
Lee Humphrey sank four while Corey Brewer
and Taurean Green nailed three a piece to help
the Gators capture the national championship
for consecutive seasons. Humphrey scored 14,
Brewer had 13 and Green added 16.
"We just knocked them down," Brewer
said. "They were just leaving us open, and we
knocked them down."
UF makes you feel helpless. You think you
have them cornered, and that's when their
shooters hurt you the most.
"It was real deflating," Ohio State's Ron
Lewis said. "You try to make a run, and they
came back every time."
Like that time during the second half when
Greg Oden swatted UF's Chris Richard.
But there was Humphrey, waiting for
the loose ball on the right wing. He fired,
he swished. That replicated itself every time
Ohio State threatened. Like that time when
the Buckeyes had trimmed the lead to 66-60.
Yet there was Green to respond with a dag-
ger from 3-point land.
Against UCLA, Humphrey became the
No. 1 3-point shooter in NCAA Tournament
history, surpassing Duke's Bobby Hurley
(1990-93), who had 42 threes to Humphrey's
47. Humphrey also leaves UF as its best 3-
point shooter in school history. He amassed
25 3-pointers to Brett Nelson's 274; and that's
after a quiet freshman season.
But lately, his consistency has driven op-
posing guards nuts. Last season, Humphrey
made 113 3-pointers, tied for the second-most
in SEC history. This season? He hit 113.
Meanwhile, Green has found a different
gear during tournament play. He burst onto
the scene at the start of his sophomore season
when he was named MVP
of the Coaches vs. Cancer
Classic. He garnered the
i same honors later that
Men's season during the SEC
Basketball Tournament. After scoring
17 against Butler and 21
against Oregon, the NCAA
awarded him MVP honors of the Midwest
Region. But while Humphrey and Green have
been snipers since anyone can remember,
Brewer has not. Recently, he hit a stretch when
he made just 10-of-44 threes.
Last season, he was a 35 percent 3-point
shooter. Which makes his recent rainmaking
barrage so much more surprising.
He's drained seven threes the last two
games, enough to garner Most Outstanding
Player of the Final Four honors. His calling
card is defense, so you can imagine what his
outside shot does to defenses when he's hot.
