Fires still burning land, billowing smoke

By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer

The raging wildfire that has claimed more than -100,000
acres of land in Georgia and Florida expanded on Monday,
bringing the burn time for the blazes to about 10 consecutive
days.
At a press conference Monday, Columbia County spokes-
man Harvey Campbell announced that the fire had jumped
into the Fairview area near Palatka.
An injury from the fire was also reported Monday. A fire- C
fighter, who fell off a ladder, was hospitalized.
However, the fire in Columbia County near Lake City is
just one of the many fires in the state.
On May 8, a fire flared up in the region, caus-
News ing the smell of a barbecue gone wrong to per-
meate much of Gainesville.
The sun, filtered by the smoke, gave parts of
Gainesville an orange tint. By Tuesday evening, ash could be
seen falling from the hazy skies.
Alachua County officials periodically issued warnings
that smoke from the north was reducing visibility.
Danny Hinson, an Alachua County Division Emergency
Management Planner, said the fire is about 80 percent con-
tained. The county has not lost any property, and there are no
reported deaths in the county from the blazes, he said.
On May 11, the fire, which was ignited from a lightning
strike on Bugaboo Island in Georgia, moved into Columbia
County and dwarfed an existing fire that was burning in the
Alachua County region. Charles Roop / Alligator Staff
"I thought our 18,000-acre fire was huge," Hinson said. A huge brush fire burns bushes and trees Monday afternoon in rural Columbia County, Fla. The fire, which origi-

Crist may veto UF bill


By JESSICA DaSILVA
Alligator Staff Writer
jdasilva@alligator.org

After much revision and debate, a bill
that would allow three state universities,
including UF, to incrementally raise tu-
ition faces one last step before implemen-
tation: the governor.
The bill, which seeks to allow UF,
Florida State and the University of South
Florida to raise tuition by up to 40 percent,
passed in the state Senate 28-10 on April
27.
On May 2 it passed through the House
of Representatives with a 79-37 vote.
It was originally introduced by state
Sen. Steve Oelrich, R-Gainesville, to al-
low UF to implement its "Academic

Enhancement Program."
Whether the bill will be made into law
depends on Gov. Charlie Crist, who pro-
posed a freeze on tuition in his budget..
When asked in an interview with the
St. Petersburg Times if
he would veto the bill,
Crist said "a strong
maybe."
As for now, Steve
Orlando, UF spokes-
man, said UF doesn't
want to make any pre-
Crist mature speculations.
"We're really grate-
ful for the support of both the House and
Senate, but all we can do at this point is
wait and see what the governor does," he
said.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL RECRUITING

Point guard picks Gators


By MIKE MCCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmcall@alligator.org

Most UF basketball fans didn't take
much comfort in point guard Taurean
Green's decision to forgo his senior year in
favor of the NBA Draft.
Coveted basketball recruit Jai Lucas,
however, saw Green's choice as an open
door. On Monday, he walked through it.
"I've decided to come to the University
of Florida," the 5-foot-10 point guard an-
nounced from Bellaire High in Houston.
Had Green stayed for another year,
Lucas probably would not have selected
the Gators.
"That impacted my decision a lot," he
said. "It's hard to come in and beat out a
point guard who won two national cham-
pionships. But when he decided to go to
the NBA, Florida moved up a few spots
for me."


When summer comes
and students toss out their
moldy refrigerators and old
couches, Dumpster divers
claim the discarded items
as their own. Local refuse
workers say garbage in-
creases by 20 percent when
semesters end.
See story, pg. 5.


Lucas ranked No. 7 in the country at
his position has been lauded for his ball-
handling skills and passing ability.
."His worth is how much better he makes
the people around him," Bellaire basketball
coach Bruce Glover said. "He does a great
job of running the offense."
"His worth is how much bet-
ter he makes the people
around him."

Local Hare Krishnas bear brunt of measles cases


* THE COUNTY AND UF ARE
WORKING TO CONTROL THE
THREAT.

By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org
A UF student was one of
four measles cases reported
to the Alachua County Health
Department in April the first
cases the county has seen in more
than 20 years.
Tom Belcuore, director of the
county health department, said the
four patients were not required to
receive the immunization because
they had religious
waivers, but the threat
Public ofmeasles had been
Health virtually eliminated
otherwise.
All four patients are members
of Hare Krishna, a monotheistic
denomination within the Hindu
tradition, according to a press re-
lease from the Krishna group.
Tulasi Payne, spokeswoman for
the Krishna House, said there is no
explicit teaching against vaccina-
tions in the Hare Krishna religion,
but members may abstain from
receiving them because some are
made from animal byproducts.
Hare Krishnas are strictly veg-
etarian.
Payne said she was vaccinated
as a child, but wasn't raised in the
Hare Krishna faith.
Because the infected UF stu-


dent had contact with fellow Hare
Krishnas who serve lunch on the
Plaza of the Americas, the group
was suspended from serving
meals on campus for 30 days, ac-
cording to a UF press release.
The Krishnas' press release
stated the group extended its break
until May 23.
Students with religious im-
munization waivers are advised
to stay off campus until the risk is
eradicated.
It takes 30 days with no new
infections for the community to be
considered safe, Belcuore said.
Only a "tiny handful" of stu-
dents have not been vaccinated
because of medical or religious
reasons, he said.
Belcuore said the county health
department is working closely
with UF administration to control
the threat of infection, which is
much higher with measles than
other illnesses.
Each person with measles in-
fects about 12 people on average,
while one person with influenza
infects about two.
A college community presents a
"great mixing bowl of challenges"
because of frequent international
travel of students, Belcuore said.
He added that even traveling to
Orlando could pose a risk because
international tourists venture
there.
Measles begins with a runny
nose, fever, coughing and pink-
eye symptoms for a few days,
followed by a rash that begins to


show on the face and then spreads
down the body, according to the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention.
The disease is contagious from
about four days before the rash
starts until four days after.
One out of every 1,000 people
with the disease dies from com-
plications, such as inflammation
of the brain.
People born before 1957, before


the, vaccine was widespread, are
considered immune because they
have lived through several years
of epidemic measles and have
probably already come into con-
tact with it.
Since the vaccine's creation in
1963, the threat of measles has de-
creased by about 98 percent.
The vaccine for measles is given
with the vaccines for mumps and
rubella.


Those who have had two doses
of the vaccine are safe.
UF students and faculty can get
free blood tests and measles vac-
cines at the Student Health Care
Center, according to the UF press
release.
Those who aren't sure if they
have received the vaccines are en-
couraged to stay away from large
crowds, according to an e-mail
sent to students.

Library fines increase for first time in 30 years


Too many overdue materials prompt rise


By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Writer
kwilmath@alligator.org

An extra night spent curled
up with your favorite reference
material may sound tempting,
but it'll cost you.


UF has raised its library fines
for the first time in more than 30
years, increasing fines on short-
term loans, Course Reserves and
recalled items.
Maximum fines for overdue
materials have also increased
from $10 to $40.


"We're raising the fines so we
can get more books back that are
in demand," said Carol Turner,
director of public services for the
George A. Smathers Libraries.
Short-term items consist of
videos, DVDs; periodicals and
some journals and reference


items. The fine will increase from
25 cents to $1 per day.-
Items may only be checked
out for a limited amount of time,
depending on demand.
The fine for overdue Course
Reserves will also increase to $1
per hour.
Fines on all other materials
will remain at 25 cents per day.
However, if an item is over-


due while another student has
reserved it, the fine increases to
$1 per day.
Turner said the increased
fines are a significant incentive
to return items on time so more
students can use them.
Students can recieve notices
about overdue materials by e-
mail, Turner said, and can renew
items online.

Political science professor named Carnegie scholar


By NICK MATHEWS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Dr. Leonardo Villal6n, director of the
Center for African Studies and an associate
professor of political science, has been named
UF's first Carnegie Scholar, according to a UF
press release.
The award will provide funding for
Villal6n to study the relationship between
Islam and democracy.
The grant from the Carnegie Corporation


will fund his project, "Negotiating
Democracy in Muslim Contexts: Political
Liberalization and Religious Mobilization in
the West African Sahel."
The project's results will be published in a
book that will be available to the public, poli-
cymakers and the academic community.
The study focuses on three countries
with Muslim populations: Senegal, Mali and
Niger.
The countries' democratic governments
have developed out of materially poor eco-


nomic conditions, which Villal6n cites as his
reason for studying the
countries.
S "Despite all odds, they
are functioning democra-
cies right now," he said.
The project is an ex-
pansion of Villal6n's prior
research and work that led
v on him to live and teach in
Africa for five years.
Villal6n taught at the Universit6 Gaston


Berger in Senegal, and as a Fulbright Scholar
at the Universit6 Cheikh Anta Diop in Dakar,
Senegal.
The experiences pointed out differences
between American and African students, he
said.
"Students in Africa take their studies very
seriously," Villal6n said. "They are very cog-
nizant of the opportunity that it represents."
Villal6n will return to Africa this summer
to research for a month in each of the three
countries.


Students win


awards in D.C.

By NICK MATHEWS
Alligator Contributing'Writer

Two UF teams received high honors and hon-
orable mentions April 25 in the Environmental
Protection Agency's third annual P3 competi-
tion, "People, Prosperity and the Planet," ac-
cording to a UF press release.
The teams both received the awards in the
national student design contest in Washington,
D.C.
They competed against 41 teams, consisting
of 350 students and advisers, to produce fea-
sible solutions for sustainability.
One project, "Sustainable Design and
Implementation of a Solid Waste Management
System in Kratovo, Macedonia: A Learning
Partnership between
UF University of Florida and
Academic Macedonia through Engineers
without Borders," focused
on finding a way to dispose of solid waste in
a Macedonian city, according to the contest's
Web page.
Kratovo's waste is currently thrown into the
Tavacka river, streets and an illegal landfill.
The project addressed how to handle waste
on educational, social, economic and environ-
mental levels.
The second project is called "QnD -
Designing a Participatory Scenario Modeling
Tool to Integrate Technology, Ecology. and
Sociology in Guatemala's Maya Biosphere
Reserve and Beyond."
It was developed as a computer program
that analyzes the impact of decisions on a social
and environmental level and functions like a
computer game, said Gregory Kiker, an agricul-
ture and bioengineering assistant professor.
The project specializes in predicting effects
from changes made to the Mayan biosphere,
such as increases in tourism, Kiker said.

what's inside.
She twirls the cane to make the bag
stick to it and then pulls it in dose to
see if there's anything worthwhile
inside.
Johnson is just one of several
Gainesville residents who have found
many treasures in what students leave
behind in their mass exodus for home.
"It's just like Christmas," she said.
Johnson said the primary motiva-
tion for her to do this is to help her
friends. She said she often gives what
she finds to her friends if she decides
not to keep it for herself.
"I love helping people," she said.
The best times to do this, she said,
are during the breaks between the
spring and summer semesters and
during Christmas break.
She said the most interesting thing
she has found was a wedding band.
She pawned it but didn't get much,
she said.
Bob Shires, operations manager for
Waste Management, said trash increas-
es by about 20 percent to 25 percent
during the times when students leave
for home.
Shires said he views the practice of
going through students' trash to find
things to reuse as a positive thing.
He said it is especially helpful
because it helps remove waste that
would otherwise go into landfills.
Melissa Palmer, public education
coordinator for Alachua County Public
Works, runs a program called Tools for
Schools. The program sets up boxes in
dormitories and apartment complexes.
The school supplies students don't
need anything from pens and pen-
cils to bulletin and dry-erase boards
- can be put in these boxes to be made
available to schoolteachers.


The program, now in its second
year, has expanded from seven dorms
to 11 dorms and several apartment
complexes, Palmer said.
She said when the boxes were
picked up on May 7, 11 boxes were


overflowing.
Palmer couldn't give an exact num-
ber but said the program filled two
minivans with supplies.
"We collect a lot of amazing things,"
she said.


Furniture lies in a dumpster at the Hidden Village Apartments. Trash ac-
cumulated over semester breaks is desired by "dumpster divers."

Editorial


Gas impasse

Pump prices not going

down anytime soon
Benjamin Franklin once said, "Nothing is certain but death
and taxes." If he were still around today, he'd probably
update that to include "and rising gas prices."
And now the Gainesville City Commission and the Alachua
County Commission want to add a five-cent per gallon tax on
top of the $3 per gallon we're already coughing up. So it only
makes sense that people support today's one-day boycott,
thinking it will be a smack in the face for the oil industry, caus-
ing it to pull down prices.
Others argue that supply and demand keep prices where
they are, and a one-day boycott won't have any effect.
We could fight until the cows come home or in
Gainesville's case, until the wildfires die down but it's not
likely that anything will bring down prices any time soon. The
better way to approach the problem is to simply use less gas.
Sure, it may still cost $60 to fill up your gas-guzzling sport util-
ity vehicle, but you won't have to do it as often.
You can start by taking the bus. For just about everyone
with a Gator 1 Card, it's free and air-conditioned. Or you can
ride your bike around town. With the exception of some major
roads, Gainesville is a pretty bike-friendly place.
Gas prices aren't the only reason to cut back on fuel con-
sumption. The traffic's not bad right how, but wait until the in-
coming freshmen and all the returning students roll into town.
Archer and Newberry roads will morph into something more
closely resembling a parking lot. You can save your gas, time
and money by choosing alternative transportation.
And then there are the environmental effects. We all know
that cars are one of the biggest contributors to carbon emissions
and global warming, so it's a no-brainer that less gas consump-
tion will equal fewer emissions.
So there's a simple math equation here: Using less gas equals
more money in your pocket and fewer harmful environmental
effects. That's something even the most math-illiterate person
can understand.

ome courses at UF might as well be named fear, doom
and failure.
I'm talking about those fanged and fatal classes
every major seems to require like Intro to Financial
Accounting and Organic Chemistry.
For journalism _majors, the class that makes students
court depression and switch colleges is Reporting.
It's the kind of class that has so spiky a reputation, horror
stories spread like the plague during the first chattery min-
utes of every first lecture. Everyone's heard the rumors:
Did you know if you spell somebody's name wrong, you get
an instant F?
Friend ofa friend had to take the class three times just to pass
with a C.
Some reporting labs have half of their students drop the class
before the semester ends.
And those are just the mostly true morsels of gossip.
Upperclassmen from the spectrum of majors may re-
member their own "weed-out" course experiences.
They can now laugh and dwell on how awesome it felt
when they beat their class's curve by just enough for a cliff-
hanger C-plus.
But for those who must still experience their major's rite
of passage, knowing that some people somehow survived
probably doesn't do much to kill the fear and loathing.
While I cowered somewhere in the middle row of pro-
fessor Mike Foley's reporting lecture three semesters ago, I
was among the hopeless.
After all, people said the only possible way to get an A in
his course was to get your writing assignments published.
And most people knew it was really impossible to get a mea-
sly reporting story published in the Alligator.
Enter: the Alligator.
Without any published clips, I went to the Alligator's
open house. They'd already turned down the first story I
submitted, so how much worse could it get?
I filled out a contributing writer application with shaky


fingers. I was almost too nervous to
eat the Pizza Hut pepperoni slice
they gave me.
A week later, they gave me an
Assignment.
Fifteen months later, they made
Dominick Tao me the editor.
editor@alligator.org While I don't have the exper-
tise to say with certainty that the
Engineering department's race
car-building program helps with physics class (it probably
does), I can say that the Alligator helps dull the sting of a
painful journalism course.
The toughest classes at UF are excruciating for a reason
- they make us touch the fire and scrape our knees so
we're wiser and tougher for the even scarier job market.
Who knows financial accounting might actually
make you a better stockbroker or CEO.
And the fear factor of Reporting also helps us get fresh
bodies in the door to replenish our graduation-depleted
ranks after every semester.
Without the tough love of UF's journalism department,
I'd never have been scared enough to get published.
If you're a student cringing at Reporting, come to our
summer open house on Thursday. You don't have to be a
journalism major to get involved. Everyone who is inter-
ested should stop by any time between noon and 4 p.m.
Our doors are also open to anyone who wants to drop
in. If you're curious about what the newsroom of the
nation's largest student-run newspaper looks like, now's
your chance.
You can meet the editors, meet the writers, eat our free
pizza and drink our soda.
We're three blocks east of UF at 1105 W. University Ave.

Letters to the i- 'riJ
Crist should not veto tuition increase
I believe that most people have been very
impressed with the way Gov. Charlie Crist
began his tenure.
The most puzzling aspect of his leader-
ship has been his apparently negative at-
titude toward the legislatively proposed 5
percent tuition increase for all state univer-
sities and the even more generous increase
for UF, Florida State University and the
University of South Florida.
The fact that Florida university tuition
rates are among the lowest in the country
- some two-thirds of the national average
- provides a more than adequate basis
for the proposed increase. This increase
has been strongly endorsed by Chancellor
Mark Rosenberg and the Florida Board of
Governors, and it merits the governor's
support. Those who desire to see a much-
improved State University System need
to urge Gov. Crist to not veto this greatly
needed increase in university funding.
E. T. York
chancellor emeritus, State University System
of Florida


Textbooks least of professors' worries
SI am writing in response to MaryGrace
Bell's April 25 letter, "Faculty need to submit
textbook info." Ms. Bell has much nerve tell-


ing students they should demand anything
from faculty members. She appears to be yet
another voice in the rising tide of students
who feel entitled to everything they want
and expect faculty and administration will
jump at their every cry. The end of the term
is just as frantic for faculty as it is for stu-
dents. Professors and instructors are busy
with grading end-of-term projects, research
papers and exams. And this says nothing of
the out-of-class responsibilities they face as
well committees, advising, research and
the like.
Textbook prices are exorbitant in many
cases many students can agree on that.
But for Ms. Bell to deride the faculty because
she's not making enough money selling her
books back is ridiculous. I was under the
impression that coming to college was about
learning and growing and that the informa-
tion contained in the textbooks was far more
important than the amount of money they're
worth at semester's end. Heaven forbid Ms.
Bell actually keeps her books and attempts
to continue learning in the future.
Students need to realize that the faculty
are not here to serve them. Payment of tu-
ition does not give anyone ownership over
instructors, and it is despicable that students
would be advised to "demand the faculty
addresses this issue."

Apartment, U-Haul rentals surge as summer starts


* MAY IS THE TIME MANY STUDENTS
CHOOSE TO RENEW LEASES.

By APRIL DUDASH
Alligator Contributing Writer

The end of spring semester brings bitter-
sweet changes for students and more sales
for some rental businesses.
To some college students, summer means
breaking in a pair of Speedos and falling
asleep by the pool.
To others, it marks the big move out of an
apartment or a fresh start on classes.
"It's sad to see some of my friends leave,"
said UF economics junior Rob Scherban.
"It's an eye-opener. That's going to be me
in two years."


As students move in order to start ca-
reers, go to graduate school or search for a
new living experience, the Gainesville com-
munity has felt the effects.
Matt Richmond, a customer service rep-
resentative at the U-Haul at 802 N. Main St.,
knows that this great migration can benefit
businesses.
"Our business definitely jumped in May.
We help 10 to 15 students a day with con-
tracts," Richmond said. "We try to get as
many trucks on the lot as possible. We run
out of smaller trucks real quick."
Apartments feel similar strains as they
try to juggle leases for new residents as well
as help old residents move out.
"The best time to find a lease is right
now," said Michelle Curtis, a leasing con-
sultant for Arbor Park Apartments. "We've


already sold out a bunch of our floor plans
already."
Heather Mentzer, a rental specialist for
Apartment Hunters in Gainesville, said "We
definitely get a lot of people who need a
place really soon. A lot of people realize they
either haven't gotten into
Around the dorms or they received
GaineSVille acceptance letters to UF a
little bit later."
For some complexes, the amount of
apartments available depends on how
many residents move out at the end of the
semester.
"We have retained more than 50 percent
of our current residents," said Kristin Bell,
a leasing consultant for Mount Vernon
Apartments.
The migration has also given Gainesville


the opportunity to share itself with outsid-
.ers, and it gives outsiders the chance to tell
their story.
"I meet people from all over Florida and
from different states and countries," Curtis
said about the tours she takes with prospec-
tive renters. "When I go on my shows with
people, I get to meet a lot of kids and get to
know them. Everything is new for them and
that's pretty cool."
"We see so many different kinds of stu-
dents: undergrads, grads, law school stu-
dents," Mentzer said. "We try to serve all of
Gainesville."
However, some are not as enthusiastic
about the new flood of students.
"It's a lot easier to concentrate without
a lot of people around," UF junior Latoya
Jnbaptiste said. "It's a little more relaxing."


FHP closes interstates after four smoke-related car accidents


FIRES, from page 1


Frank Armijo, Lake City
Fire Chief, said his firefighters
have been working 40 hours
straight to help contain the
Bugaboo blaze.
He said firefighters will
work on the brush fire for about
16 hours and then return back
to Lake City to fill a 24-hour
shift in case a fire happens
within the city.
"I thought our 18,000-
acre fire was huge."
Danny Hinson
Alachua County Division
Emergency Management
planner


Normally, firefighters would
work for 24 hours and then get
48 hours off.
However, firefighters are
now working 40 hours with
only 24 hours off.
"They're doing a heckuva
job out there," he said.
Another result of the
Bugaboo fire has been the
closings of Interstate 75 and
Interstate 10 in North Florida on
Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Michael Burroughs, spokes-
man for the Florida Highway
Patrol, said the decision to close
parts of 1-75 and 1-10 was influ-
enced by four car crashes, one
of which damaged five cars,
that were reported within 45


minutes of each other.
Burroughs said the cars
crashed because of a lack of
visibility. People would just
enter into a wall of smoke, he
said.
"You can't see anything at
all," he said.
Alan Long, a UF professor in
the School of Forest Resources
and Conservation, said 'some
of the causes of brush fires are
lightning and human activity.
Long said carelessness or
deliberate arson can start a
massive forest fire.
He said part of the difficulty
in fighting fires such as these
is that it can be hard to get in
front of the fire because of the
danger.
He said the lack of roads that
go into forested areas can also
make it difficult to fight a fire.
However, the wildfire in the
Alachua County area also gave
an opportunity for the county
to test out a new system, which
uses the Global Positioning
System to help chart out wild-
fires and hurricanes.
Fay Walker, geographic in-
formation system specialist for
Alachua County Fire Rescue,
said helicopters were used to
help map out fires and deter-
mine who needed to be evacu-
ated.
"It was a success," she
said.

Sales bloom on Mother's Day


By AMRITHA ALLADI
Alligator Contributing Writer

Though Gainesville turned into a ghost town
during the one-week break between the spring
and summer semesters, Gator spirit thrived on
Mother's Day anyway.
Dianne Gates, manager of The Village Jeweler in
Haile Plantation, said this year she was surprised
to see so much Gator jewelry sold as gifts for moth-
ers. The "national championship sandwich" defi-
nitely increased The Village Jeweler's Gator gear
sales, she said.
"We had an excellent Mother's Day in terms of
sales," Gates said.
Popular gifts included commemorative basket-
ball and football clothing and jewelry, as well as the
usual gift items, such as Pandora Jewelry and Vera
Bradley bags, Gates said.
Fower shops and card stores in Gainesville saw
the same trend this Mother's Day.
Jeff Rothstein, owner of the florist shop Floral
Expressions on Northwest 23rd Street, said popu-
lar flower arrangements included the usual tulips,
gerbia and daisies.
Business was heavy at Floral. Expressions due
to the coincidence of local high school proms and
Mother's Day.
The Gainesville High School and Buchholz


High School proms brought in students requesting
corsages and boutonnieres while also purchasing
flowers for mothers.
UF students showed their mothers and grand-
mothers appreciation, too, when they went home
over the break.
"My mom passed away, so we take my grandma
as our mom now," said Edwige Boireau, a sopho-
more at UF. Boireau went home to Orlando over
the break and surprised her grandmother.
"We had an excellent Mother's Day in
terms of sales."
Dianne Gates
manager of The Village Jeweler

"We went to a church event where all the hus-
bands cook for the moms and wives," Boireau
said.
College students studying elsewhere also
returned home to visit their mothers over their
breaks.
Gainesville native Guergana Panayotova, a ju-
nior at Johns Hopkins University, said she looked
forward to coming home to visit her family.
"I saw my parents last over Spring Break, so I
was lucky to be able to come home to Gainesville to
spend Mother's Day with my mom," she said.

MEN'S TENNIS

Gators rally to upset FSU


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer

Trailing 3-0 against rival Florida State in
Tallahassee, the Gators stood on the edge of
season-ending elimination.
Instead, the No. 19 UF men's tennis team
(15-7) won their four remaining matches for
a 4-3 upset win against the No. 16 Seminoles
(17-10) in the second round of the NCAA
Tournament Saturday. UF defeated Georgia
Tech 4-1 in Friday's first round.
The Gators faced the Seminoles on the
road Feb. 17, when they were on the other
end of a 4-3 score.
After wins on the top three courts to tie
the score Saturday, the outcome was left in
the hands of the No. 5 singles match.
With fifth-year senior Jordan Dolberg on
the court for UF, Coach Andy Jackson wasn't
worried.
"We were in pretty good shape," Jackson
said. "I felt like we had the better players on
(courts 1, 2 and 3) and (Dolberg) was turning
his court around."
Dolberg hadn't realized that his team had
fallen behind 3-0.
"It's probably better off that I didn't,"
Dolberg said. "When I knew it was coming


down to me, I knew I'd pulled off a couple
wins like that this year."
After losing the first set 6-4, Dolberg
came back to win the next two sets 6-3 and 6-
2 against Maciek Sykut. Sykut and Dolberg
had faced off during the teams' regular-sea-
son meeting, with Sykut winning 6-1, 6-2.
"(Dolberg) is a completely different
player (since the teams' first meeting),"
Jackson said. "His con-
tinued development has
been one of the stories of
our season.".
This is the third time
this season that Dolberg
has played in a singles
match with the team score
Jackson knotted 3-3. Dolberg
has been victorious
every time, helping the Gators to two key
Southeastern Conference victories against
Tennessee and Vanderbilt during the regular
season. All three matches have gone to three
sets.
"It's what you play team tennis for,"
Dolberg said. "It's why I'm at UF."
The Gators now head to Athens, where
the remainder of the NCAA Tournament
will take place.


UF awaits Patterson decision


RECRUIT, from page 1


Wednesday.
"I told Patrick that wherever I go, he's
coming with me," Lucas said. "I'm not
taking no for an answer."
If Patterson does decide to come to
Gainesville, he will likely give the Gators
the nation's top recruiting class.
"He's just one of those great big men
who does everything," Lucas said. "It's a
rarity to have someone like that. I'd com-
pare him to a mix between Al Horford
and Joakim Noah, for all the Florida fans
who don't know him."
Lucas chose UF over Kentucky and
Oklahoma State, where his brother, John
Lucas II, was an All-American. His fa-
ther, John Lucas I, played and coached
in the NBA for more than 20 years, most
recently as head coach of the Cleveland
Cavaliers.
Jai's ties to professional basketball
have given him an opportunity most
never get to practice and compete


against current NBA players like Sam
Cassell and T.J. Ford.
"NBA guards are the best in the "
world," he said. "So I figure that when
I come to college, I'll be prepared for
anything."
Lucas thrived primarily as a ball
distributor on talented teams, but his role
changed during his se-
nior campaign.
"We lost a major
scorer, and we needed
Men's Jai to lead us in scor-
Basketball ing," Glover said. "He
really adjusted well. A
lot of people don't real-
ize it, but he can score too."
As a Gator, Lucas will be able to return
to his usual style, racking up assists with
laser-like accuracy.
"That's what he's best at getting
the ball in people's hands," Scout.com
recruiting analyst Dave Telep said. "He
won't have to score the way he did in
high school because of the weapons
Florida has."

UF to wrap up regular season against Tennessee


BASEBALL, from page 19

home runs in Friday's contest.
Oh Saturday the team enjoyed an equally stellar performance
from junior pitcher Bryan Augenstein, who carried a shutout into
the eighth inning and picked up his second consecutive win in an
8-4 Gators victory. Senior outfielder Brian Leclerc set the pace for
the offense, going 3for 5 with 4 RBI.
The Gators' final opponent of the season is Tennessee, with
the team coming into Gainesville on Thursday. UF will need
another strong showing against the Volunteers to improve its bid
for the NCAA Tournament. ,


UF is in third place in the SEC East, just a game behind
South Carolina and a game and a half game
up on Kentucky. A successful outing against
the Volunteers would likely put the Gators
in Hoover, Ala., next weekend for the SEC
tournament.
But an NCAA bid is not a certainty.
Normally, a 14-13 record in the powerhouse
SEC would be more than enough to qualify
a team for the tournament. But the Gators
Augenstein hold a 13-13 record against non-conference
opponents.
It is very rare for a .500 team to make the NCAA Tournament.

carding a 309 (25 over) in day one. The
Gators rested in 13th after the opening
round, 10 strokes behind Denver, who
held the eighth spot at that point.
UF would improve each day. Led by
the late-day success of redshirt sopho-
more Omella Jouven, the team would
fire a 304 (20 over) in day two. Jouven
would birdie the final three holes, sin-
gle-handedly moving the Gators from


12th into a three-way tie for 10th.
The team would claw and fight in
the third round, turning in its best per-
formance of the toura-
ment a 297 (13 over)
to finish the tournament
just two strokes be-
Golf hind eighth-place New
Mexico.
"It's tough to know
we were so close," Briles-Hinton said.
"We know we should I : there, and
that's just disappointing.'


The Gators fell to one of the most
difficult fields assembled thus far.
Seven of the nation's top-20 teams
were competing, including Pacific-10
champion No. 2 Arizona State and No.
5 Pepperdine.
In addition, the par-71, 6,234-yard
tournament course was one the team
had never seen before.
"Both the field and course were tre-
mendously challenging," Briles-Hinton
said. "And to our credit, we never gave
up or got down on ourselves."


NICK-EL, from page 19

In contrast, two players who left
Gainesville with tarnished records, defensive
end Jarvis Moss and defensive tackle Marcus
Thomas, went higher, way higher than Siler.
Both admitted to failing drug tests while
playing for Urban Meyer, but both went in
the first four rounds to the Denver Broncos.
Meyer relied on Leak and Siler's great
leadership skills last season, yet e',n in
Roger Goodell's character-driven league, the
flawed linemen had far greater value.
While the Gators led all schools in the
number of players drafted, the low NFL
stock of their leaders on offense and defense
left a bitter taste.
Q: So who had a good break?
A: Billy Donovan.
Who else? Everybody wants a piece of
Billy right now.
First it was Kentucky. Then the Memphis
Grizzlies came calling. Oh yeah, he found
time to grab recruit Jai Lucas on Monday, and
the money's on him getting Patrick Patterson
on Wednesday too.
But the best part of being Billy the last two
weeks?
He got to vacation in Ireland.

Series win keeps NCAA bid alive

UF pitcher Kyle Mullaney checks a runner at first base. The freshman
right-hander has emerged as the Gators' Friday starter.


By ALEX WEINTRAUB
Alligator Writer
aweintraub@alligator.org

Heading into the season, the Gators were predicted
to finish dead last in their conference. Now they're
knocking on the door of a postseason bid.
UF (27-26, 14-13 Southeastern Conference) took
two of three from LSU last weekend and improved
its chances of making not only the upcoming SEC
Tournament but the NCAA Tournament, as well.
"I definitely think it's possible to make (the NCAA
Tournament)," said freshman Kyle Mullaney, who has
taken over as the team's Friday starter. "We have the
talent to do it. We just have to keep improving."
For the second weekend in a row, the Gators had a
chance at a sweep but could not pull out the Sunday
game.
On Sunday, freshman starter Billy Bullock strug-
gled early and was tagged for three
runs in the first inning. UF would
even the score in the next inning and
eventually take the lead. But once
Baseball again the pitching would not hold,
and the Gators would surrender six
more unanswered runs to drop the
game 9-4.
"It's frustrating," Mullaney said of dropping a
Sunday game for the second week in a row. "We don't
like losing, but we played our hearts out. We always
shoot for the sweep."
Friday and Saturday went much more to UF's lik-
ing.
On Friday, the squad racked up 19 runs and got
an excellent performance from Mullaney, who pitched
eight innings and gave up three runs on eight hits en
route to a 19-3 trouncing.
"It's always fun to pitch in games like that,"
Mullaney said. "But I always take it as though it's
a zero-zero game. I still try and make every pitch I
throw my best pitch."
The outing earned Mullaney SEC Freshman of the
Week honors.
Senior first baseman Matt LaPorta continued his
tear through the season. He went 4 for 5, with two

Women end season in disappointment


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Writer

Throw away the spring. Kick dirt on
the fall.
In this sport, only the immediate
past matters. Just ask UF women's golf
coach Jill Briles-Hinton.
"Unfortunately, in golf the only thing
people remember is the last round you
played," she said. "And that doesn't
bode well for us."
The Gators will certainly remember
their last round of play, as their sea-
son was lost in the mountains of Utah
Saturday.


Finishing with a three-day total of
910 (58 over par), the Gators would
finish the NCAA
S West Regional in 10th
place, bringing UF's
season to a disap-
pointing end. Only
the top eight quali-
fiers in the regional
advance to'the NCAA
Championship. UF
Briles-Hnton finished two strokes
away from that elusive No. 8 spot.
"We're disappointed we're em-
barrassed," Briles-Hinton said. "We're
just sad."


"We gave it our best effort, but un-
fortunately it wasn't meant to be. This
team is capable of making it to nation-
als, and they will certainly use this as
motivation from here on out."
The No. 8 Gators were oozing with
confidence heading into the tourna-
ment, riding a streak of six consecu-
tive top-five results, while coming off
a runner-up finish in the Southeastern
Conference Tournament. They were
slated as the No. 3 seed in the 21-team
regional field.
The .team got off to a rough start,

Short break

some at UF

C lasses have resumed, but did you
do your homework over the break?
It's pop-quiz time.
Q: Which vaunted UF squad disappoint-
ed at NCAAs?
A: Rhonda Faehn's top-ranked gymnas-
tics team.
The Gators took a disappointing third at
nationals in Utah. Its borderline absurd for
third place in the country to be a downer, but
with this team, disappointing is the only way
to describe it. What hurt most was watching
rival Georgia, the same team that challenged
UF for the No. 1 ranking all season, deliver
the knockout blow
and take another
team title.
The Gym Dogs
and Gators competed
to a tie at Georgia in
the regular season's
Nick Zaccardi biggest dual meet.
Nick-el Coverage But in the eyes of
nzaccardi@alligator.org many, UF got the
edge for going into
Athens and matching
the hosts routine.
Georgia's win at a neutral site proved that
the Gators, long thought to be the best in the
land, were just another star in the studded
SEC.
Better luck next year.
Q: Which former Gators swallowed (or
choked on) their pride?
A: Chris Leak and Brandon Siler.
The overhyped, overdramatized and
overanalyzed NFL Draft came, and it went
without Leak's name being called.
Teams nabbed 11 quarterbacks in seven
rounds, including sleepers Jeff Rowe and
Jordan Palmer and snoozers Isaiah Stanback
and Tyler Thigpen, instead of the undersized
national champion.
Leak was happy to have his choice
of teams to sign with he opted for the
Chicago Bears rather than facing the un-
certainty of teams late in the seventh round.
Siler didn't fare much better, falling to the
seventh round.Of all the possible early en-
tries from the championship team, Siler was
one whom Coach Urban Meyer told to stay
in January But Siler's lack of size, publicized
attitude problem or the wrong people telling
him the wrong things got in the way.
Mel Kiper clones had Siler going in the
second to fourth rounds, but he took a free
fall all the way to the seventh.

Wins push UF to Round of 16

NCAA Tournament second round victory against the Bulls Sunday.


* THE GATORS ADVANCED DESPITE AN
UNEXPECTED CHALLENGE FROM USF.

ByPHIL KEGLER
Alligator Writer

The UF women's tennis team advanced to
the NCAA Tournament Round of 16 last week-
end but not without being pushed by South
Florida.
Anastasia Revzina came through to put
away the pesky Bulls 4-1 in the second round
Sunday a match that was much closer than
the score indicated.
Although the No. 4 Gators were up 3-1,
UF had trouble with the clinching point. In
the other remaining matches, freshman Csilla
Borsanyi, ranked No. 61, was trailing 4-2 in
the third set on court five, and junior No. 21
Diana Srebrovic was tied with No. 26 Shadisha
Robinson 1-1 in the third set of the No. 1
match.
Revzina had won the first set 6-2 but fell
behind 5-2 in the second set. A third set would
have-'extended the match for quite a while
longer and left the door open for an upset.
Instead, the 17-year-old freshman rallied to
force a second-set tiebreaker and put away
Jessica Sweeting for the victory. The win was
her 14th straight, and it advanced the Gators
to Athens, Ga., where the remainder of the
tournament will take place.
"I was down 5-2, but I was confident it
wasn't the end, just the beginning," Revzina
said. "I just kept putting the ball in the court,
and finally I got it done."
The Gators defeated Jacksonville with ease
in Saturday's first round. UF won the doubles
court and swept the bottom three singles
matches, losing only one game in all three


matches.
The Bulls got the first victory Sunday with
an 8-5 win in the No. 2 doubles match, defeat-
ing Nina Suvak and Whitney Benik. The Gators
answered with wins on courts one and three.
Freshmen Megan Alexander and Anastasia
Revzina won 8-4 in the No. 3 match, and the
No. 18-ranked duo Borsanyi and Srebrovic
clinched the doubles point with an 8-5 victory
on court one.
In singles, Suvak increased the lead to 2-0
with a 6-3, 6-2 victory against Liz Cruz on
court four. Less then ten minutes later, Benik
increased the lead to 3-0 with a 6-4, 7-5 victory
in the No. 6 match. Benik took the-first set with
ease but battled back from a 5-3 deficit in the
second set.
"I was down 5-2, but I was confident it
wasn't the end, just the beginning."
Anastasia Revzina
UF women's tennis player

No. 41 Alexander lost 6-4, 7-6 (12) to No.
57 Courtney Vernon in the No. 2 match.
Alexander fell behind 5-2 in the first set and
was unable to complete a comeback. She
trailed 5-2 in the second set as well, but forced
a tiebreak. The tiebreaker went back and forth,
with Alexander failing to capitalize on three
set points before Vernon claimed the win on
her fourth match point attempt.
UF will now face No. 15 Baylor on Friday
morning at 9.
"What it's going to take in this tournament
to advance is toughness," UF coach Roland
Thornqvist said. "We got (South Florida's) best
shot today. ... And I'm just really happy we
were able to survive."
