BOG may limit enrollment

UF may have to admit fewer transfer stu-
dents next fall to meet the Florida Board of
Governors' newly imposed enrollment limits.
The board, the State University System's
highest governing body, e-mailed state uni-
versity presidents on Wednesday with recom-
mendations for fall's enrollment numbers.
According to the board's calculations based
on available state funding, UF's total enroll-
ment should be 44,848 students by August.
On the first day of classes this year, 50,576
students were enrolled.
UF Provost Janie Fouke said freshman and

UF ranks low in safety

A recent Reader's Digest study that
warns parents about nationwide cam-
pus crime reveals that UF ranks No.

The March article, titled "Is Your
College Student Safe at School?"
rates the universities based on each
institute's reported crime data in nine
categories sent to the Department of
Education in 2004 and 2005, the latest
The categories include murder,
rape, theft and arson.
The higher the score, the higher
the campus crime activity. UF's score
means that only 51 other universities in
the study had less crime than UF.
Linda Stump, chief of the University
Police Department, said she was con-
cerned by UF's ranking because of its
impact on a large audience.
"I think anyone who reads the
Reader's Digest will be
like,'What?'" Stump said.
Public Severe offenses, such as
Safety murder and rape, weighed
more than burglary and
theft, and enrollment was considered,
the article stated.
In 2004, UF was one of three uni-

occur on campus, a factor that UPD Lt.
Robert Wagner said must have affected
the low rating.

Professor discusses his denial of Armenian genocide
By ALYSSA LaRENZIE
With a booming voice that
echoed off the walls in the dimly
lit auditorium, Justin McCarthy
described the theory that has ostra-
cized him from many other promi-
McCarthy, a history professor
at the University of Louisville who
believes the Armenian genocide was
not genocide, spoke Friday night at
the University Auditorium.
About 200 people attended the
event, sponsored by Accent and
hosted by- the Turkish Student
Association, said Altan Ozler, presi-
dent of the association.
The mass killing of Armenians in
1915 is commonly recognized as the
Armenian genocide, but a few histo-
rians like McCarthy disagree with
this view. In his speech, McCarthy
discussed how Armenian rebels re-
volted against Ottoman leadership
during World War I.
McCarthy argued that the kill-
ings of Armenians were motivated
by the military, and many Muslims
had died at the hands of Armenians
Tigran Kesayan, an Armenian
freshman, wasn't engrossed by

sity shouldn't host a person with

Fraternity event raises money, awareness for homeless
* MONEY, CLOTHING COLLECTED
GOING TO ST. FRANCIS HOUSE.
By LIA GANOSELLIS
A local homeless shelter will soon see
a surge in donations after a UF fraternity's
UF's chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity
raised about 300 pounds of clothing, 25 boxes
of nonperishable food and $250 on Friday
night for its 12th annual Sleepout for the
About 350 people gathered on Turlington
Plaza from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. to show their sup-
port for the cause. The fraternity provided
pizza from Hungry Howie's, music and a gi-
ant screen for people to play video games.
Alpha Phi Alpha President Michael
Mitchell said all donations would go to the St.
Francis House, a Gainesville organization that
provides support services to the homeless.
Mitchell said it's hard not to notice the
homeless problem in Gainesville, but it's even
harder for people to imagine what it's like to
be homeless themselves.
Joseph Akoni, the fraternity's treasurer, said
he never realized the extent of Gainesville's
homeless problem until participating in the
event. Akoni said most people have a lot of
clothing they don't wear and said that it's im-
portant to give to others who may need it.
"We need to do as much as we
can to change it."

ing affordable housing, increasing access to

Samuel Green, a member of Phi Beta Sigma
Fraternity, said he recently talked to a man
who had just been evicted from his home and
had no place to go. Green said his experience
made him realize how common homelessness
is in Gainesville and how easy it is for people
to lose everything.
"We need to do as much as we can to
change it," Green said.

Family, friends hold memorial for Machen's father
* BERNARD MACHEN, 94, DIED IN
By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
The first time UF President Bernie Machen
brought his father to the president's box for a
Gators football game, his dad had only one re-
quest: to watch Auburn University play on TV
while the'Gators played on the field below.
To the 80 people who gathered Sunday
afternoon to remember Machen's father, a life-
long Auburn fan, this story was no surprise.
Machen's father, Bernard Machen, died
Jan. 9 at age 94. A memorial service was held
Sunday at Oak Hammock, the UF-affiliated re-
tirement home where the elder Machen lived
Family members and friends shared
memories of him, sang hymns and listened to
Scripture verses chosen by his wife, Eleanor.
She sat in the front row while President
Machen read a speech she'd written for the
"Bernard will never die," Machen said,
reading his mother's words. "My wish for
each of you is that you know that kind of
love." The couple would have celebrated their
65th wedding anniversary this month.
Their daughter, Faye Bracey, also shared
several anecdotes, two of which related to her
father's work as a nitrate salesman.
Bracey said when she was born, her father
had to borrow money from a stranger in a
train station to get back to
Montgomery, Ala. As soon
as he arrived, he mailed a
check back to the stranger.
Once she left home to at-
tend Vanderbilt University,
Bracey said she rarely kept
in touch with her family, al-
Machen ways blaming it on her new
friends. One afternoon,
she walked onto campus and discovered her
father had driven from Atlanta to meet these
friends who were so important.
After he took them out to lunch, she said
her father told her, "Little girl, I want you to
know I'm glad you're having a good time,
but families communicate and you need to
remember that." Since then, she said she never
forgot to call home.
Don McGarity, a retired Presbyterian minis-
ter and volunteer chaplain at Oak Hammock,
led a final hymn and a benediction.
McGarity said he visited Machen as often
as he could, and Machen talked about how
much he loved his family every time.
"Many times I have to cheer people up," he
said, "but he would cheer me up."

Funds should be set
aside for financial aid
ast month, U.S. Sens. Max Baucus and Charles Grassley
sent letters to universities with endowments worth at
least $500 million, asking why they aren't using more
of that cash to help make a college education more afford-
And UF was one of the 136 universities to get something
in the mail.
Since the university's endowment funds in 2007 totaled
more than $1.2 billion, the UF Foundation intends to answer
the senators' inquiries in 30 days or less.
And we'd be interested to know what that answer will
With tuition rising faster than the rate of inflation, we're
glad some in Congress finally recognize that something
needs to be done - and quickly - to ensure every American
has access to a college degree.
Endowments, essentially stockpiles of money universities
invest to ensure financial security, receive high rates of return
that are tax-free.
And on average, endowments at 785 institutions in the
U.S. and Canada enjoyed huge investment returns of 17.2
percent - the biggest in a decade.
But, they only spent an average of 4.6 percent of their en-
dowments last year, and some lawmakers have said that the
spending rate should be at least 5 percent.
Maybe they finally realized the disconnection between
bragging about billions in the bank while students are strug-
gling to pay for books.
Since the University of Texas system announced Thursday
that it will spend more of its endowment so it can attract and
keep faculty - with the added bonus of reducing the size of
tuition hikes - we're wondering if UF will follow suit.
Granted, the Texas system does have an $11.7 billion en-
dowment. We're certainly not suggesting that UF is in the
same financial position, and we also understand that as a
public school, the budget is greatly affected by the economy.
However, with UF enjoying a higher-than-average 22.4
percent increase from the endowment funds in 2006, we're
wondering why there hasn't been more of an effort to share
UF Foundation Associate Vice President Leslie Bram
said that while the university has "leap-frogged up that
endowment list over the last 20 years," the cost of college
for middle-class families is not an issue at UF because of the
availability of Bright Futures scholarships.
We appreciate the steps the state of Florida has taken to
keep our tuition low.
But with the expected tuition increases in the coming
years in combination with slim state budgets, we don't see
the harm in using more of the endowment to offset these
Who's to say that more cannot be done to encourage do-
nors to limit their donations to financial aid or more scholar-
Whatever we've said in the past about Bernie, the man has
delivered when it comes to fundraising. Who could possibly
forget that "Voyage to Tomorrow"-themed kickoff for UF's
$1.5 billion capital campaign?
However, one of the major obstacles in using endow-
ment money is that a lot of the money that comes into UF is
The university is often marketed as a research institution,
and some seem to forget there are actually students here that
have to take classes.
And as the endowment skyrockets along with tuition,
it's important to remember that while we care about Florida
Tomorrow, we also care about Florida today.

ON THE SUBJECT OF DANGER ON CAMPUS
A 7COR DWAI To TH6 UAPD
A DCO4 TItG Ao\I rsT ToAJ
Weekend in Boston offers life lessons
don't know if I ever told you, but I went to Harvard.
Contrary to expectations, it had little to do with
my being a genius. Actually, all I needed was a plane
ticket to Boston and a good excuse, like my Ivy League
homeboy's 21st birthday falling on a Friday.
That being said, Harvard taught me something I
might not have learned elsewhere: Don't eat in booze-
serving Chinese restaurants at 2 a.m.
More on that later.
When I first arrived at the home of the close-biut-no-
cigar Patriots, my insecurities began to get me down.
First, I felt inadequate because my college tuition is rea-
sonably priced. Second, my jacket clashed with all my
outfits and I was awkwardly scarf-less.
Lastly, Carly Hallam's column on Friday was a mas-
terpiece (please read it if you haven't already), and I
will never be able to write like that.
But those feelings of self-pity diminished with each
additional Harvard student I met.
I enjoy short weekend trips because of the com-
pressed experiences. There's rarely a dull moment.
Case in point: G.I. Nick, a man who may or may
not have been a veteran Army Ranger studying at
Harvard's business school.
Nick "introduced" himself to my friend and me as
we were eating in a nearby Chinese restaurant early
He was blitzed, bald and built like a refrigerator.
When he invited himself to sit next to me, my only sol-
ace was to ready my fork for a swift attack.
Nick began to educate us on the tenets of effective
racism, the keys to success with women and the prin-
ciples of fighting terrorists in Afghanistan and/or Iraq.
Somehow the subjects overlapped seamlessly.
Death threats and foul language were also dis-
At one-point, I hypothesized
how my height might be making
it difficult to date girls.
- Nick's insight: "You see that
guy over there? He's 5-7 and he
shot three Iraqis in the face with
Vincent Massaro a 9 mm."
email@example.com was going to educate Nick
-------- on dental hygiene, but it would
have been like talking to a wall
- a large, drunken wall.
And just as quickly as he came, Nick left without
explanation. I kind of miss him.
Saturday evening was much less eventful, even
though Sunday morning seemed to indicate otherwise.
I woke up with a sore throat, a stomachache, nausea,
and inner ear, jaw and neck pain.
I knew something was seriously wrong with me
when I -couldn't even feign an argument with the in-
spector at the airport security checkpoint.
Basically, he started going through my cosmetic - I
mean toiletry - bag before I went through the metal
He was touching my toothbrush, which would have
made me uncomfortable under any other circumstanc-
Afterward, I regained coherence and threw away the
The plane ride didn't help. I know Jerry Seinfeld has
said all that needs to be said about air travel, but I was
able to come up with one more observation.
If they say not to drink the water from the airplane
bathroom sink, should I really wash my hands with it?
Come on, I went to Harvard.

Segregation alive on Turlington Plaza
Why does Turlington have two names?
Next time you walk through Turlington
Plaza, or walk by The Set, look left, look
right. This walkway is just one example
of the social segregation of UF's students.
I am bothered by this and the countless
other times in class, parties and organiza-
tions where I've watched my peers sort
themselves by color or race. In this behav-
ior, we are hurting each other and we are
hurting ourselves. Plenty of our students
could not care less about racial differences,
but our community as a whole is failing to
overcome the racism of our past. I will not
pretend to fully comprehend this problem,
but I do know this - students, we're not
learning from each other as much as we
could. We're also missing out on potential
friendships and valuable connections.
So let's bridge this gap. Try making
friends with someone outside your normal
group, or simply start a conversation with
someone you normally wouldn't think to
- you might learn something.
Hopefully, when our children go to
UF, the racial divide won't be as clear as a
walk through the plaza.
Professor's arguments unsupported
Last Friday there was an extremely bi-
ased, highly misrepresentative and clearly
false argument presented by Professor
McCarthy as he denied the genocide of
Armenians in 1915. It is important to note
that an overwhelming majority of the in-
formation presented in McCarthy's lecture
came from his own research - the same
research which has been called "carelessly
written, often misinformed, and shame-
lessly following a Turkish nationalist
agenda" by prominent scholars such as
the International Association of Genocide
Scholars and the British Journal of Middle
During his speech, McCarthy presented
radical ideas that contradict the Institute
of Holocaust and Genocide, along with
the Institute for the Study of Genocide,
which have affirmed the historical fact of
the Armenian Genocide. McCarthy grossly
overexaggerated numbers of Armenians
who resisted extermination and blamed
the lives of Ottomans lost during WWI on
Armenians, who as McCarthy noted were
an extreme minority.
When asked about telegraphs describ-
ing the genocide, like several sent by the
U.S. ambassador to Turkey, McCarthy sim-
ply ignored this evidence by accusing the
ambassador of being a racist.
Overall, McCarthy had only his own
research to support his statements.
No evidence for Armenian genocide
Regarding Tigran Kesayan's Friday
letter, apparently Mr. Kesayan has never
been exposed to Dr. McCarthy's work be-
fore - otherwise he would at least know
that his name is not James McCarthy but
Justin McCarthy. If you don't even know
somebody's real name, how can you ques-
tion his scientific work?
Unlike Tigran Kesayan's claims,
there is no strong evidence supporting
a state-sponsored plan by the Ottoman
government aimed at the extermination
of the whole Armenian minority in the
empire. Finally, Kesayan drops Deborah
Lipstadt's name without being aware that
Ms. Lipstadt herself had earlier, in her
"Denying the Holocaust" book, concluded
the Armenian experience "was not part of
a process of total annihilation of an entire
So, simply saying "Dr. McCarthy ig-
nores historical facts" is nothing but an
attempt to cover up the other side of the
plant molecular and cellular biology Ph.D.

About 200 people met in the
building's large Ocora Room to
dedicate the building.
During school days, the
room is filled with tables and
chairs to accommodate work-
ing, sleeping and socializing
students, said Joe Glover, in-
terim dean of UF's College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences. As
seen on Saturday, it functions
as a lecture space, too.
Also on the building's
ground floor are the audito-
rium named for the MacKays
and a snack and coffee store
that opened Wednesday.
The Bob Graham Center for
Public Service trains students
for future government posi-
tions and offers a certificate in
public leadership. It shares the
second.floor with the Samuel

Callpus which provides
views of people who have seen
historical events in Florida
firsthand. A dedication for
Graham's center will be next

UF sweeps double weekend
By BOBBY CALLOVI
The UF gymnastics team dem-
onstrated this weekend it's almost
ready to compete for a national
With meets on Friday and
Sunday at Kentucky and Pittsburgh,
respectively, the No. 3 Gators were
trying to simulate the difficulty
of -ompeting in two meets in the
same weekend - the format of the
UF started the weekend with
a 196.35-193.15 victory against the
Wildcats, and then increased its
margin versus Pittsburgh to 196.85-
The team total against the
Panthers was the Gators' second
highest of the season.
"What was nice to see this com-
petition is they actually performed
better than at Kentucky and had
the enthusiasm for this competi-
tion," UF coach Rhonda Faehn said.
"This was great to see, because that
will be instrumental in the success
of the postseason, having that type
of energy and still feeling strong on
the second day."
UF's new lineup on the uneven
parallel bars worked out, as the
Gators didn't have a fall in Friday's
competition. It was the first time
without a slip since the opening
meet against Illinois-Chicago.
UF followed it up with another
six-for-six performance on the bars
"Maranda (Smith) had a great
leadoff for us there, and it helped
build the confidence of the team,"
Faehn said. "It's nice to see, because
the more they perform this way,
they can become more aggressive,
.so we can focus on the little things,
the finer points of execution."
Going into the weekend, senior
Ashley Reed and junior Corey
Hartung were tied at nine all-
around victories in their college
"It's nice to see, because
the more they perform
this way, they can become
more aggressive, so we
can focus on the little
things, the finer points of
UF gymnastics coach
On Friday, Reed captured her
10th win with her best total of the
season, 39.325, and Hartung picked
up hers with a 38.675 on Sunday
in front of many of her family and
friends - Hartung is from Irwin,
Pa., 20 miles outside of Pittsburgh.
Reed placed in the top three in all
seven of the events she competed in
this weekend, including first-place
finishes in vault on Friday and bars
The senior didn't seem phased
by the double weekend.
"I think knowing what to expect
on a double weekend might have
helped some, and just going out
there feeling good and being con-
fident really helped me out a lot,"
Hartung's performance wasn't
as dominant, as she only placed in
three of the eight events, but she
did get her first win in the floor ex-
ercise event on Friday and then tied
for first on floor on Sunday.
Until this weekend, she looked
nearly unbeatable on the vault,
but in both meets, Hartung had the
lowest score for the Gators, includ-
ing an event-low score on Sunday.
UF also got strong performances
out of proven gymnasts Melanie
Sinclair and Amanda Castillo, who
combined to win or tie for all four
events on Sunday, but it was the
more inexperienced competitors
that Faehn was pleased to see per-
form well in the meets.
"It was nice to see other indi-
viduals step in, and I thought we
didn't have a problem this time
around with mistakes or athletes
feeling uncomfortable or confident,
because there was a great opportu-
nity for them to gain more experi-
ence," Faehn said.
UF will look to continue to im-
prove as it returns home to take on
No. 7 LSU on Friday

UF WOMEN'S BASKETBALL
Gators take step backward with road loss to Rebels
By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
Three days after one of its biggest wins
of the season, UF took a giant step back-
The Gators (15-9, 4-5 Southeastern
Conference) reverted to their old ways on
the road, allowing Mississippi State (15-9,
3-6 SEC) to score the first 20 points of the
ballgame on the way to an 83-71 Bulldogs
UF coach Amanda Butler took all the
blame in her post-game radio show.
"I don't know if it was a funk or what,"
Butler said. "Clearly we weren't ready
from the beginning, which is my fault. ...
There's not anybody in this league that's
supposed to have us down 20 to nothing."
UF did not score a single point until
Marshae Dotson made a turnaround hook
at the 14:44 mark. The Gators committed
26 turnovers, including 16 in the first half.
The lone bright spot was sophomore
guard Jennifer Mossor who made her sec-
ond start of the season in place of injured
point guard Lonnika Thompson, who is
day-to-day with a separated left shoul-
der. Mossor had a career-high 20 points
on 8-of-15 shooting, including 4 of 8 from
behind the arc. Depree Bowden scored 19
points and grabbed eight rebounds while
Dotson and Sha Brooks
each contributed 10.
While it was far from
her best day, Dotson did
finally break the 1,000
career points mark on a
free-throw with 6:25 left
in the game.
Mossor "It's just an awful
time to have our worst performance of the
year," Butler said.

Alexander, Horschel lead to SunTrust Gator Invitational win
* GATORS TAKE TITLE FOR
FIFTH STRAIGHT YEAR.
By ANDY HUTCHINS
For the UF men's golf team, the
bnvak between the final match of
the fall season and the beginning
of the spring schedule is the longest
hiatus of the year, longer than the
time from spring of one year to fall
of the next.
At the SunTrust Gator
Invitational this weekend, the No.
12 Gators showed no signs of rust.
Firing on all cylinders, UF'
romped to a fifth consecutive vic-
tory at its home tournament, its five
team players combining to shoot 20-
under through 54 holes on Saturday
and Sunday. UF's cumulative 820
outpaced its closest competitor,
Florida State, the only other school
under par, by 12 shots.
Coach Buddy Alexander was
very pleased with his team's first
tournament triumph since this same
event last year.
"I think it would be easy to say
we always win the Gator and it's no
big deal," he said. "But teams have
to learn to win and be comfortable
in that spot."
Sophomore Tyson Alexander
led the Gators' effort, notching a
two-under 68 on Sunday to claim
third place for the
tournament at six-
under, one shot
shy of Alabama at
Golf Sucher and Duke's
who shared medal-
But a frustrating double bogey
on the 18th hole cost him his first in-
dividual collegiate victory and rated
as the lowlight of a bright day.
"We would like to have had the
individual champion," said Buddy
Alexander, also Tyson's father.
"Tyson stubbed his toe a little bit at
the end. He played beautifully for
seventeen holes, and hopefully hell
use that positively."
The coach also noted that the
Gators showed their depth, which
he called "a blessing and a curse."
Billy Horschel tied for fourth, one
shot behind Alexander, while senior
Manuel Villegas' one-under week-
end tied him for 12th and junior Will
Strickler's even-par effort tied him
for 17th. Even though Toby Ragland
struggled to an eight-over 78
Sunday, his 69 and 67 on Saturday
buoyed him to a tie for 26th.
Freshman Arnond Vongvanij and
senior Tyler Brown, both competing
as individuals, also placed in the top
twenty. Vongvanij tied for ninth, the
first top ten of his career, and Brown
earned a share of 19th.
UF's roster would seem like
an embarrassment of riches, but
Buddy Alexander is quick to note
the drawbacks of having a number
of talented players.
"It's nice to have a number of
solid players, but we've got to get it
down to five," he said.
The Gators could use some con-
fidence heading into the John Hayt
Invitational at Ponte Vedra Beach's
Sawgrass course from February 17-
19, where national powers UCLA
and Alabama loom.

earned a No. 13 preseason ranking
UF (5-0) defeated South Florida
5-1 in the fifth and final game of the
USF\Wilson Invitational in Tampa.
All-American pitcher Stacey
Nelson, who struggled in her first
outing of the season Friday night,
pitched seven stellar innings, allow-
ing just one run on two hits.
"She's not one of those people'
who's going to get down," Coach
Tim Walton said.
The Gators were behind 1-0 until
scoring four runs in the top of the
fourth, including a two-run double
by senior right fielder Mary Ratliff.
The double was Ratliff's third
extra-base hit of the tournament.
"She's not one of those
people who's going to get

"It was a good start, but I need
to work on my consistency," Ratliff
said of her fast start to the season. "I
don't like following up doubles with
The Gators put up one more
run in the fifth inning when Kim
Waleszonia hit a triple and advanced
home on a throwing error.
That was all the run support
Nelson would need. The UF junior
put up zeros in each of the last two
innings on her way to her third win
of the season. Walton was pleased
with his star pitcher's performance
during the weekend even though he
felt she was not at her best.
"She's got a target on her back,"
he said. "Teams are going to come
after her every time she pitches."
That sentiment proved especially
true this weekend, as Nelson pitched
in all three of the Gators' cose con-
tests. She earned the 6-4 win Friday
night against Florida Gulf Coast and
then pitched in a close 3-2 victory

McCarney, who joined the Gators' staff on
Friday. Meyer first called McCarney on
Thursday, offered him a job that night and
had McCamey locked up the next morn-
ing before Mattison made his decision to
"It happened real fast," said McCarney,
who coached the defensive line at South
Florida in 2007.
"I'm really looking forward to it,"
McCamey said. "Florida is one of the great
programs in all of America."
Meyer has two more vacancies to fill, re-
placing safeties coach John "Doc" Holliday
and running backs coach Stan Drayton,
who left for West Virginia and Tennessee,
respectively. McCarney said he expects
those positions to be filled this week.
Mattison's spot is now in Baltimore, but
he made it clear that he will miss UF.
"I'm really looking forward to it.
Florida is one of the great pro-
grams in all of America."

Saturday against Illinois.
Freshman Stephanie Brombacher had an
easier time inside the circle, collecting two
wins in mercy-rule-shortened victories.
On Friday, UF blew out Bethune-
Cookman 10-0 and then proceeded to blank
Memphis the next day in a 9-0 rout.
"When the offense does their job it makes
life easy," Brombacher said.
In her first two appearances donning the
orange and blue, Brombacher pitched nine
innings without allowing a single run.
Perhaps more impressive than that is the
10-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio she posted
during the weekend.
Brombacher wasn't the only freshman
to make a splash in her debut. In UF's first
game against Bethune-Cookman, shortstop
Megan Bush hit a home run in her very first
at-bat as a Gator, and second baseman Aja
Paculba went. deep in
the second at-bat of her
DeFelice hit .500 with two
doubles in her first week-
end as a Gator.
"It makes me more
rombacher and more excited for the
rest of the season," Ratliff
said of the Gators' young talent. "We have
some stars in that group."

UF bench play leads to victory

At this point, UF's record is not
reflective of where this team needs to
be, Donovan said. And if things con-
tinue down the path they're headed, the
Gators may never get there.
"Until we collectively start playing
defense like we do on offense, with a
level of unselfishness and togetherness,
I don't know if this team will ever reach
its full potential," Donovan said. "Our
team will get hardened by losing, and it
will keep rearing its ugly head in front of
us until we deal with it."
With the win, the Gators ended a
two-game skid where they lost by a
combined 41 points to Arkansas and
Tennessee on the road.
UF defeated the Bulldogs for the
ninth consecutive time and outscored
Georgia's bench 27-0 in the contest. A
big reason for the success of the Gators'
reserves was forward Chandler Parsons,
who scored 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting,
including 3 of 6 from behind the arc.
Parsons' big day snapped a five-
game slump where he connected on just
7 of 23 shots from the field and hit just 1
of 9 3-pointers.
Hissuccess can be credited to a rough
week, when Parsons practiced into
near exhaustion. He hit the gym and
shot until he could hardly stand, some-
times practicing until 3 a.m. After a few
days, Parsons thought he might be sick
and went to the infirmary for tests. He
skipped class and practice Thursday, but
tests came back negative, and doctors
recommended he simply get some rest.
"I guess it was me being dumb
and shooting until 3 in the morning,"
Freshman Nick Calathes struggled to
find his shot in the win. He scored just 7
points on 1-of-7 shooting but did man-
age to dish out six assists. -
Center Marreese Speights scored 6
points and grabbed 10 rebounds, while
Walter Hodge scored 14 points and Jai
Lucas chipped in with 13.
Sophomore Dan Werner had seven
steals in the contest, setting an O'Connell

No. 19 UF picks up in-state wins against FSU, USF
marianne LIJOWSKI / Alligadur
UF freshman Jeff Dadamo hits a forehand against Florida State's Clint Bowles during the Gators'
5-2 win Saturday. Dadamo clinched both of UF's wins during the weekend.

The UF men's tennis team couldn't
have asked for a better weekend.
The No. 19 Gators dispelled of
two ranked in-state foes Friday and
Saturday at home.
Neither match was easy.
UF defeated archrival No. 14 Florida
State on Saturday, 5-2, in a match that
was a couple of points from swinging
in the Seminoles' favor.
FSU seemed to set the tone early
when they swept the Gators off the
doubles courts (8-2, 8-5, 8-5), and UF
was unable to break serve late in the
sets to close in on the Seminoles.
Then Gators coach Andy Jackson
addressed his players during the break
between doubles and singles matches.
"I felt like [FSU] played very well
in the doubles, and I also felt like there
was a little bit of head hanging on our
part," Jackson said. "And we just said,
'OK, let's play but let's not drop our
heads if we get behind,' and obviously
[UF] responded in the way that tough
The Gators raced out to early leads
on the singles courts, winning the first
set in five of six matches.
Senior Nestor Briceno played in
doubles but didn't play in singles be-
cause of a stomach virus, Jackson said.
The lineup change forced UF to play a
fifth freshman, Erik Corace, in singles.
However, the adjustment didn't
hurt the Gators.
Freshmen Johnny Hamui, Alex
Lacroix and Tyler Hochwalt were able
to close out their matches in straight
sets and give their team a 3-2 lead
heading to the final two courts, which
featured Greg Ouellette and freshman
"We got a long way to go, but
we're on the right path."
UF men's tennis coach
Dadamo cruised through his first
set 6-2 but dropped the second set 3-
6. He then broke his opponent 6-4 to
clinch the match for UF
"I was a little nervous going into
the match," Dadamo said. "I got a little
tight when it came time to cose it out.
But keep playing, and good things will
On Friday, UF knocked off No.
57 South Florida 4-3. Dadamo again
clinched the match for UF, and two
of USF's singles wins came after the
match had been decided.
After the match against FSU,

"I told them, I think we're probably
about 50 percent as good as we could
beby the end of the year,'" he said. "We

Gators use strong starts to sweep FAU on Senior Day
By EUGENIO TORRENS
C t a day when the seniors were the fo-
cal point of the meet, the lone senior diver
might have made the loudest splash.
Sarah Ellerby turned heads in the last
dual meet of her collegiate career by finish-
ing first on the one-meter board, giving UF
the lead out of the gates.
It wasn't her diving that nabbed atten-
tion, but rather her appearance in the 400-
yard medley relay.
Ellerby, filling in for Amanda Hartley,
swam the third leg in the senior-filled race.
Though the relay team finished fifth,
teammates and fans alike cheered the senior
on, capturing the emotion of Senior Day.
"(Hartley) was sick, so they asked me if
I would do it and I was like, 'Sure,'" Ellerby
said. "It was fun. I had a good time doing it.
It was a lot harder than I thought it would
The rest of the seniors put in their share
as well, contributing to wins on both the
men's and women's sides.
The men defeated Florida Atlantic 172-
112 and the women won 169-124.
Both teams started strong. Following
one-meter diving wins from both Ellerby
and Aaron Leech, both the
men and women placed
first and second in the 200
Leech also finished on
top in the three-meter div-
The rest of the meet
Ellerby took that same pattern,
.with both the men and
women dominating FAU.
The men placed first in 11 of their 16
events, and the women's team got 11 first-
It was also fitting that a good number of
the wins for both teams came from the se-
niors, who were honored prior to the meet.
Seniors delivered 11 first-place finishes,
"There's so many of us, so many seniors,
so it was really cool to wrap it up with a
win," said senior Caroline Burckle. "We
were more focused on just being a team
"Outstanding people," said swimming
coach Gregg Troy about his seniors.
"The women's class of leadership has
been fantastic," Troy said. "They've been
good for four years. It's a real quality
