After Florida's 27 electoral votes
went to President-elect Barack
Obama, contributing to his road to
victory, some may wonder how the
peninsula turned so blue.
Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson vis-
ited UF's Pugh Hall on Wednesday
to provide post-election- analysis
of Tuesday's election and speak on
Florida's role in the results.
Nelson said Obama's Florida vic-
tory was a combination of sweeping
strategic counties, extensive ground
operations, wise spending and an
overlay of TV advertisements.
Nelson combed through the
counties' individual results, saying
he advised Obama to concentrate
on the state's Interstate 4 corridor
and the northeast triangle cre-
ated by Jacksonville, =Tallahassee and

excited she was to get the chance to vote for
Obama.
Obama called her home after the CNN
story aired, but he left a voicemail because she
was out with friends, Hooper said.
Hooper said the Obama campaign called
Cooper on Tuesday and told her to watch the
speech because she would be mentioned.

woke his three children Wednesday and
played the speech for them on a computer.
What his two teenage sons and 7-year-old
daughter heard was the country's next presi-
dent spend about two minutes describing how
their great-grandmother, Ann Nixon Cooper
-- who was born when neither blacks nor
women could vote watched her country
overcome economic hardship, homeland at-
tacks and civil-rights disputes.
"To see the gleam in their eye when they
heard President Obama say their great-grand-


mother's name, youkInow, it was an awesome
moment for me," Hooper
said. "I could see that they
were inspired."
Hooper, a St. Petersburg
Times columnist, graduated
fromUF inl1986 with apub-
lic relations degree and also
worked for the Alligator.
He called his grand-
Hooper mother something of a
celebrity in Atlanta. When she cast her vote

For some students who registered to
vote with a nonpartisan group on campus,
the election isn't over.
UF's Student Public Interest Research
Groups, or PIRGs, is working with elec
tions officials after 10 or 12 students who
tried to register with the group's New
Voters Project did not show up on county
records, Alachua County Supervisor of
Elections Pam Carpenter said.
Some were required to vote using pro-
visional ballots, giving them until 5 p.m.
today to clear up any issues.
Student PIRGs members don't kn~ow
what went wrong with the registration
forms.
"As far as we know, we submitted the
forms,'' said R.J. Raley, Student PIRGs'
Florida campus organizer.
Sujatha Jahagirdar, program director
with Student -PIRGs' New Voters Project,
said the problem was discovei~ed when
some students called to check on their
voter status and were informed they were


not registered.
Once the calls began, she said the
group started to contact those students
who would potentially have a problem at
the polls.
"There was a batch that the first calls
had come from," she said. "Those students
had registered on the third of October."
All those who had
registered through the
organization on Oct.
3 were contacted by
phone or e-mail with
warnings stating they
may have trouble vot-
ing, she said.
Carpenter Raley said students
who had tried to
change their addresses with the group
were able to do so at the polls, but those
who registered for the first time had to
vote on provisional ballots.
He said 2500 .other students had been
successfully registered through the New
Voters Project.
"The whole purpose of what we do
is to make sure students have a voice in
politics," he said.


to his house in Jacksonville when the acci-
dent occurred.
The other passengers in the Honda
were UF students Hailey Zielinski, 19, and
Laura Milton, 20, and SFC student Sabrina
Shields, 19. Zielinski and Shields are in
Shands at Jacksonville in stable condition,
Samra said.
LOC~al McCoy's Gainesville '
NeWS mo~mmate,UFstudentDante
Sorrentino, 20, said Shields
and McCoy had been dating.
"Their one-year anniversary was on
Halloween," Sorintino said. "They loved
each other so much and were probably go-
ing to get married."
The two met when McCoy transferred
from UNF to Auburn University for his
sophomore year, Sorrentino said.
Sorrentino said he thought McCoy
transferred to SFC to be closer to his family.
"Hie loved being around his family," he
said. "He would come down every week-
end to go hunting with his dad, even when
he was going to Auburn."


HA MEMORIAL WAS HELD FOR
ROBERT MCCOY, 21.

By KATIE EMMETS
Alligator Writer

An SFC student who died following a
car accident in Jacksonville early Saturday
morning was remembered Wednesday
at a memorial service at the First United
Methodist Church of Ocala.
Robert McCoy, 21, was a liberal arts ma-
jor from Ocala in his first semester at SFC.
McCoy and four other passengers were
leaving a Halloween party at 1 a.m. in a
2002 Honda when the car was struck by a
car traveling in the wrong direction.
Matt Samra, 20, said he was McCoy's
roommate their freshman year at the
University of North Florida and had known
McCoy since they were both 11 years old.
"He was always really nice and put ev-
eryone before himself," Samra said.
Samra had been driving the Honda back

University of Texas at Austin. He previ-
ously worked in human resources at Rice
University and Vanderbilt University, both
private institutions.
Cavanaugh said he took the opportunity
at Duke, which he called
one of the top five institu-
tions in the nation, because
of its employment base of
about 30,000 people and
the autonomy given to
those who run its opera-
tions.
cavanaug "The Duke opportunity
is probably only one of
those opportunities that comes along maybe
once in a person's career," he said.
The impact of UF's future budget cuts is
still uncertain, buit Cavanaugh said he said
he plans to work with Beach as much as pos-
sible up to the day he leaves UF to prepare
him for the cuts.


"This institution, as grand as it is, is going
to be here for some time," Cavanaugh said.
Steve Dorman, dean of the College of
Health and Human Performance, said he
will miss Cavanaugh for his thoughtfulness
and seasoned leadership and advice.
"I certainly think our university is better
off for having him as a leader," Dorman said.
"For me, it's a personal loss because he's a
friend of mine.".
Robert Jerry, dean of the Levin College of
Law, agreed.
Jerry said he met Cavanaugh for dinner
shortly before he decided to come to UF from
the University of Texas at Austin in 2005.
Cavanuagh improved a lot of UF operations
during his four-year UF career, he said.
Jerry said he would be concerned about
Cavanaugh's decision to leave even if it
wasn't made with the prognosis of more
budget cuts.
"Anytime Kyle leaves, I'll worry about
the time he's leaving," Jerry said.


vice president.
Machen wrote that additional budget
cuts are anticipated following state revenue
shortfalls, and they need to be targeted dur-
ing the next three months and through the
legislative session starting in March.
"In these challenging times the continuity
in our leadership is critical and by appoint-
ing Brian to the interim position, that conti-
nuity is guaranteed," he wrote.
David Jarmul, associate vice president
of Duke's News and Communications, said
Cavanaugh interviewed for the position over
the past several weeks. Cavanaugh's new
position will be entirely focused on human
resources instead of finances and other broad
areas that he oversees at UF, Jarmul said.
"We're delighted that he's coming,"
Jarmul said.
He said Cavanaugh's salary is not dis-
closed because Duke is a private institution.
Before Cavanaugh came to UF, he

Kyle Cavanaugh, UF senior vice presi-

to lead human resources at Duke University.
Duke officials and UF President Bernie
Machen announced the move Wednesday.
Cavanaugh, 50, has been at UF since May
2005, when he became the university's first
vice president for human resources. He was
promoted in 2007 to senior vice president for
administration.
He will start at Duke on Feb. 1.

Another pledge said he

it was a cup of water from the
water fountain and only done
as a joke.
A third pledge told Pruitt he
had food poured on him, but it
was also a joke, and he wasn't

Another pledge said he
heard that food and eggs were

The pledge also said a

UF spokesman Steve
Orlando confirmed the suspen-

"We take hazing very seri-
ously, and that's why the UPD

involved," Orlando said. No
arrests had been made as of
Wednesday night.

Orlando said police investil

Instead of dusting off our purple velvet Prince suit,
favorite ascot and far-too-normal-looking Jheri curl to
head for XS, we've got something new in the cards. We
just picked it up courtesy of some of our friends who live
on the west side of campus.
We're going to meet up with a bunch our friends to pick
up some eggs, a 32-gallon trash can, a package of Huggies,
a few bags of ice, a bunch of Coors Light, a bag of fun-size
Snickers and some chocolate-flavored laxatives every-
one knows there's no better way to kick off a weekend.
Th~en, we're going to head back to one of our houses to
kick it in the basement.
We'll kick-start the fun by telling stories and sipping
Silver Bullets. We don't have that many chairs at home,
though, so if too many bros show up they can just kneel
anthe concrete basement floor. We doubt it will be a big
Once the storytelling gets old, we'll pass around our
a volatile mix of baby Snickers and chocolate laxatives
- chocolate roulette will only make our Friday more ex-
citing. We just hope we won't have to change our Huggies
more than a half-dozen times before the night is over.
If that gets boring, the chocolate roulette survivors can
always break into a random, post-8 p.m. Friday exercise
routine. We're thinking push-ups, wall sits and sit-ups.
Because nothing beats conditioning after sweets.
Naturally, while all this other fun stuff is happening in
our basement, we'll occasionally crack an egg on the head
of one of our friends. If we run out of eggs, we could just
dump ice water on them, or, better yet, shove them all the
way into the freezing water. Good tim~es.
Of course, the whole event will be voluntary, and par-
ticipation in our filthy games will be 100 percent optional.
We would never actually think of forcing sit-ups and laxa-
tives on our friends. That would be awful, degrading and
pretty much completely unnecessary.
Think of what the University Police Department might
think. They would probably assume we were hazing our
friends. We would be so embarrassed.
That's why everything is completely optional. Our
friends won't even have to drink any of our Coors. Who
are we to disregard the will of our friends who are regis-
tered members of the More Taste League?.
Why would we haze our friends? The idea is ludicrous
and stupid.
Last time we checked, we like our friends and hazing
is idiotic. We think it would be funny to see them compete
in crab-walk races, and it would be awesome if they de-
c'ided they wanted to buy us some booze so we could chug
along, but only if they wanted to. Involuntary fun isn't fun
at all it's work.
Which is why this Friday, at one of our houses, we're
going to have the sickest optional participation Huggies-
chocolates-and-calisthenics party in the history of UF,
courtesy of Coors and Snickers.

Obama win brings.
Sitting on the floor against the wall in the Reitz Union
-Grand Ballroom, I had separated myself from the
masses and slowly began to grasp what President-
elect Barack Obama's victory meant to the black students
at UF.
Applause and celebration were commonplace: over
the course of the evening, but something exceptional
happened when the news broke that the freshman sena-
tor from Illinois had defied all logic to defeat a man who
looked a lot like every other president in America's past.
Hearing the incessant chanting of their candidate's
name, watching perfect strangers embrace and seeing oth-
ers overcome with sheer emotion break down in tears of
joy, I couldn't help but get swept up in the moment.
Somewhere, black luminaries like Martin Luther King
Jr. and Frederick Douglass were grinning from ear to ear.
The scene of peaceful chaos could not be disrupted by
the police officers standing nearby or the few remaining
McCain supporters. The sentiment expressed throughout
the room was a force no one dared to reckon with,
I wrote initially in a blog entry that the feeling was akin
to attending a rowdy football game at the Swamp, but the
emotion in the room was so much more honest, so much
more significant.
Obama's victory is the embodiment of democracy;
the public's cry for something new has finally been an-
sw ch ught about what the victory meant to me, and per-

how black students reacted to the announcement was one
of the most moving experiences I have ever witnessed.
For some, such a defining moment may not occur again
until they get married or have their first child, and for oth-
ers the sense of elation shared with hundreds of their peers
may remain an unparalleled memory over the course of

After generations of blood,

finally arrived with Obama rep-

letersaligaor.rg We have reached a point in our

limitations on the prospects of its life.
When times are tough (economic and social recovery
will not happen overnight), the black community will be
able to turn to President-elect Obama and have faith that
the man they so passionately fought for wil have their
best interests at heart. For the first time in American his-
tory, one can believe the voiceless will be heard and the
downtrodden will no longer be forgotten.
We have undeniably progressed as a nation and will
build from such historic times to solidify our standing as
the epitome of what all countries should strive for.

Tuesday evening's events, which I experienced alongside
some of the most passionate people who lived and died

Abortion rhetoric not main problem
While some may argue the terms "pro-life"
and "pro-choice" are equally poor choices
in rhetonec for how they describe abortion, I
would like to go straight to the heart of the
debate and shed some light as to why one
expression makes more sense than the other.
Abortion is about life and the value of it. While
the issue certainly has social, economic and
ethical components, none of this matters if a
fetus is considered a life.
We need to look at the scientific evidence
we have and work together to find compro-
mise. When does a heartbeat begin? When
does the brain start functioning? When is the
point of viability? These are all questions that
have answers and can be used to help guide
our decisions.
In the end, we must find a new policy for
abortion that provides a conservative estima-
tion of when life begins. Once this is achieved,
there will no longer be a debate over jargon be-
cause the term pro-life will apply to everyone.


Their memarks were inappropriate, igno-
rant and embarrassing.
One friend's status said they were "seeing
the failure of the republic. Hitler gave good
speeches too. If you voted for Obama, con-
grats, you've betrayed the constitution for a
handout."
What I'm most afraid of is that I~won't be
the only one experiencing this. I'm sure there
are a lot of people out there who have had to
read similar things.
Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion.
I believe in the First Amendment, but this is
ridiculous. There is no need for the tasteless
things said. I don't think people realize the
impact their words have and how permanent
they are once they're on the Web.
Hopefully, we will all 1ay down our differ-
ences and come through this as a nation ready
to work together for change.

nounced the winner, countless status updates

America has voted. These long months
of political tumult and unpassioned debate
()have finely culminated into a moment
of truth, reaching a climax of presidential
proportions.
We the people of the United States
of America have spoken, and we
want to know: Who's nailin' Palin!
SShe winked, she charmed, she hunted
moose. She aroused the public interest in
more ways than one. Her updo inspired a
nation; her qualifications divided a party.
Sarah Palin has now inspired a sex tape,
"Who's Nailin' Paylin," starring porn star
Lisa Ann, who, in Palin's signature specs,
looks a little like the vice presidential hope-
ful.

an be viewed some as a refreshing venue
that serves as a contrast to
m initsown the stiflingly proper natune
our country of politics.
ree ~fTime and time againthis
column has been accused of
objectifyingg women and
their bodies." My playful attitude regarding
fag hags, cock-mongering Disney princess-
es and plaid-covered bulges managed to of-
fend a few people no surprise there. What
came as a surprise was that after I finished
watching "Who's Nailin' Paylin," some-
time after the initial giggles, deep down in-
side my cold little misogynistic heart, I felt a
twinge. Could I have been...offended?
First Hillary Clinton was bemoaned for
her robotic ways and overall lack of sexual-
ity. Then Palin was labeled a hockey MILF
and accused of using her sexuality to fur-
ther McCain's campftign. Who cares about
women's qualifications when we can put
them on a sexy spectrum? Palin, bless her


heart, might be under-qualified, but why
fault the woman for being a looker? I sup-
pose it's easy to make a powerful woman
nonthreatening by showing her getting
railed by Russians/Obama/Condoleezza
and Hillary. But perhaps Caribou Barbie
was never viewed as threatening to begin
with.
On www.zazzle.com you can buy shirts,
aprons and beer mugs emblazoned with
"I'm the guy Sarah Palin blew to get the
nomination" or "Nailin' Palin: Maverick-
style." There's even a Sarah Palin sex doll.
Stripper coiltests for Palin look-alikes have
popped up across the U.S. And now there's
a porno.
Palin's sexuality, it turns out, was both a
blessing and a curse on several levels. Her
real mistake, and unfortunately one that
was out of her control, was becoming a pop
icon. But here in the U.S. of A., everyone is
fair game to be questioned, satirized and,
yeah, sometimes blatantly insulted. But
that's what makes our country so great.
Deal with it.

"I really didn't like singing in pub-

Danielle, it made sense."
This past summer, Decosmo was
thrown on stage and sang with the
band while The Company was play-
ing at Reggae Tuesdays at Sidebar.
"More than anything, we had to
coerce and talk her into being our
singer," Greene said.

A Boss Lady show combines origi-
nalmaterial and covers, and the band
prides itself on tight play.
"We're all into it when we're out
there," Decosmo said. "Steve will
have a cigarette, and we'll all just be
dancing. We're all into it in our own
ways when we play."
On Friday, Boss Lady and the
Company will play at Thai Fusion
downtown. The show will mark the
beginning of Boss Lady playing the
venue every Friday night.
"It's outside, and the sound pours
out onto the street," Greene said. "It
gives people a chance to hear us and
then come check it out."


Crammed into Nick Greene's
sound-proof, back bedroom, Boss
Lady and the Company ripped off a
few of their original tracks Thursday
night. Instead of going down the
line and awkwardly hammering out
boring, cookie-cutter interview ques-
tions, the band decided to start things
off with a little glimpse of their live
sound.

With Danielle Decosmo provid-
ing a haunting, classical voice over
Greene's driving bass lines, Steven
Unrue's rangy lead guitar and Matt
Lazar's tight drums, the band prob-
ably falls somewhere between jazz
and funk with a smattering of what
they call, "accidental reggae."
The band's first incarnation played
its inaugural show last Halloween.
Greene and Unrue grew up ph~iving
together, and with the addition of
Lazar on the drums they became The
Company (the Boss Lady would be
picked up later). With Greene cau-
tiously handling the lead singing, the

Earlier this year, Rehab's
"Bartender Song (Sittin' At a Bar)"
made the leap from jukebox phe-
nomenon to Hot 100 entry. Now
Danny Boone, mastermind of the
honky hip-hoppers, finds himself on
the cusp of fame. On Nov. 8, Rehab
will play alongside bands such as
Hinder and Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
at~ the Planetfest, a music festival in
Jacksonville. Has life changed? How
could it not? Says Boone, "We've got
more beer than we've ever had in ow

AVE: Do you find
that crowds in the
South respond bet-
ter to your music?
DB: No, we get
a good response all
the way to Seattle,
L.A... The kids in soe
Seattle want to iP
each other's heads off because they
aren't just there to hear "Sittin' at a
Bar." They know all the harder stuff
too. I think that in the South, some-
times it can be somewhat dangerous
because you'll have a mixture of the
people who came to hear our harder
stuff with the people who came to
hear "Sittin' at a Bar." And they think
it's going to be "Sittin' at a Bar" all
night long. Since we play that last,
people are like "Hey, hold on!"
AVE: You have unique sound. Who
were you listening to growing up?
DB: KRS-One. Beastie B8oys, of
course. LL, EPMD, Poor Righteous
Teachers, Audio Two... But even
after that, you know, a lot of the guys


that are out now Busta. He was
hot. He is hot. Well [laughing], he's
not hot sexually. Never mind. Next
question!
AVE: Who are your favorite current
artists?
DB: Jay-Z,T.I. Andre 3000 is about
one of the sickest MCs I've ever heard
in my life. Lil Wayne's hot. He's on
some lizard shit. He's like slithering
through some dewy grass. When he
rhymes, hejust sounds like that.

with te most ta o ve 't ye
been able to?
DB: You know what I'd really like
to do? Do a whole hip-hop record
- just a straight-up hip-hop record
- but I'd like to do all the beats for
Kid Rock. That would be hot! I met
him and we hung out and partied,
but l wouldn't say we kn~ew eadvo;7th-
er because we were...I was drunk. So
y know, if you only know a person
Mhie they're drunk, you don't kn~ow
them too well.
AVE: What do you think the big-
gest difference between your next
album and "Graffitii the World" is go-
ingto ber
DB: As of now, we did two songs
- laid down two hooks, and they're
really...One's almost like love song.
Itllbe a first. [laughter] And the other
one's a pretty stupid approach, but
it's dope. You know we always leave
it kind of quirky. Everybody says,
"Keep it real." We just keep it quirky.
Planetfest will be at Metropolitan
Park in Jacksonville, and tickets are
$25 in advance and $35 at the gate.

UF coach Billy Donovan announced Wednesday
that sophomore point guard Jai Lucas will be trans-
ferring from the program.
Donovan and Lucas met to discuss his transfer
around 1 p.m. Wednesday. At the time of the meet-
ing, the rest of the team had not been informed of
Lucas' decision.
'7 feel bad because Jai's a great kid," Donovan
said. "Any time a player leaveA your program,
you'r al ays disappointed "
able for comment on Wednesday.
Senior Walter Hodge, who
Men'S scored 12 points off the bench in
Basketball theGators' first exhibition against
Warner on Monday, will replace
Lucas in the starting lineup to-
night when UF takes on Rollins College at 7 in the
O'Connell Center.`
Donovan said Lucas did not feel comfortable
at UF, and his departure is not an issue of playing,

"Part of it was being far away from home and
not feeling like it was the best fit for him," Donovan
said. "That's the way he put it."
According to Donovan, Lucas wrestled with the
idea of splitting time with reigning Southeastern
Conference Freshman of the Year Nick Calathes at
the point, and Lucas did not feel comfortable play-
ing so many minutes off the ball.
Lucas is still free to use the basketball faciiis
at UF until he leaves, which Donovan said would
likely be at the end of the semester.
"We haven't talked about schools or anything
like that yet," Donovan said. "He's going to look at
his options, and we.are going to try and help him
pursue whatever opportunities he may have going
forward."
Donovan said he was surprised by the news, but

-- even more so
than before now lies in Calathes'
hands.
Putting Walter Hodge at point
guard is like Percy Harvin taking
snaps out of the shotgun. Hodge, like
Harvin, still has significant value.
He'll spot up for that 3-pointer, art$
he'll even help out on the occasional
press on both sides of the ball.
Just keep in mind that when Harvin
is under center, he's running the ball.
And when Hodge starts at point
guard, he's not going to be running the
offense. It's predictable.

SEC FOOTBALL


Vandy needs best game vs. UF


August.
While she originally was the
only UF player unable to com-
pete, it seems fitting Boonstra
has not been infected by the
illness.
Ever since she got word
she was eligible to play last
December, she has seemed un-
touchable.

"She did a great job this
summer when she waS
home practicing. When
she got back here, she
had made big strides."
Roland Thornqvist
UF women's tennis coach


Once the spring began,
Boonstra played the No. 5
position and overmatched her
opponents, compiling a 15-3
record.
In doubles play, she teamed
with then-sophomore Megan
Alexander to form a dominant
duo.
Alexander and Boonstra
made their presence felt early
by downing then-No. 5 Melissa
Mang and Amanda Granson of
Duke 8-5 on Feb. 15 and ending
the 2007 season in the nation's
top 25.
While her first year with the
Gators opened some eyes in the


per game) and points allowed (11.6), and they are
the only team in the league to score more than
300 points this season.
Johnson said UF;'s recent blowouts it has
won jts last three games by an average of 42.3
points doesn't make life easy.
The Gators won 49-22 in Gainesville last sea-
son.
"You don't want to be on the bad end of (a
blowout) like we were last year
against them," Johnson said.
"It motivates your guys to
get out and learn the game
plan."
One of the keys to
Saturday's game will be the
play of Vanderbilt quarterback
Johnson Mackenzi Adams.
The junior came off the bench to lead a fourth-
quarter comeback against Auburn and has start-
ed the last two games.
Adams is completing only 51 percent of his
passes this season but poses a dual threat with
his running ability. He has 137 yards on the
ground this year.
"You could tell that he's a good emotional
quarterback who plays with passion," UF line-
backer Ryan Stamper said. "They were fired up
when he came in (against Auburn)."
Johnson said the key will be not giving up big
plays early.
"You do all you can to stay close and have
a chance to win in the fourth quarter he said.
"That's how every game for us has played out
(this season). ... I hope it can be close in the
fourth quarter."

With No. 4 UF coming to Nashville on
Saturday, Vanderbilt will take any help it can
get.
Most betting services have the Gators as 24-
point favorites, but Commodores coach Bobby
Johnson had a different idea of how to level the
playing field.
"If they want to play with 10, we'11 allow them
to do it. We'll take any advantage we can get,"
he jokingly said earlier this week. "We'll try to
sneak 13 in there and have an odd number so the
officials won't see it."
Johnson's sentiment may be surprising, con-
sidering a win Saturday would bump Vanderbilt
into a tie atop the Southeastern Conference East.
The Commodores (5-3, 3-2 SEC) opened the
season with five straight wins, earning national
praise as they became~ the darlings of college
football fans across the nation.
Vanderbilt is the SEC's only private school
and has the league's smallest enrollment at 6,402
students, compared to UF's 51,520 students-
But a recent three-game slide has kept the
Commodores one win away from becoming
bowl eligible for the first time since 1982.
"Hopefully, we can play as well as we possi-
bly can play," Johnson said Wednesday, "because
I think that's what it's going to take to win."
Now, Vanderbilt comes off a bye week to face
a UF team that has played some of its most com-
plete games the past few weeks. The Gators (7-1,
5-1 SEC) lead the league in scoring offense (42.9

Boonstra finds success a


college tennis world, coaches
Roland Thornqvist and Dave
Balogh saw ways to improve
their internationally tested
newcomer.
The UF staff began to
strengthen Boonstra's back-
hand, and she worked on .it
while in the Netherlands after
the spring season.
"She did a great job this
summer when she was home
practicing," Thornqvist said.
"When she got back here, she
had made big strides."
The European Gator has
used those strides en route to
an eventful fall.
Her play in singles matches
has stood out, and she owns an
8-3 record, including four wins
against top-100 players.
Prior to today's National
Indoors, Boonstra's biggest
tournament was the ITA All-
American.
Although she failed to
reach the main draw at the
All-American, she played 6 1/2
hours of matches on Sept. 30
and won two matches.
One of those victories
came against No. 38 Gabriela
Niculescu of Southern Cal.
Having played many match-
es this fall, Boonstra has felt
fatigued at times.
Never has exhaustion been
so rewarding-

doing to overtime never crossed
Becky Burleigh's mind.
Even when there were two min-
utes' left and the game was tied at
1, the UF coach had no thoughts of
extra minutes.
She must have known some-


thing everyone else didn't. With
just more than a minute to play
in regulation, junior Ashlee Elliott
found a rebound in the box and put
it in the back of the net to give No.
7 UF a 2-1 victory against Alabama
- a very different outcome from
their first meeting, which ended 6-
1. The win allows UF to advance to
the next round of the Southeastern
Conference Tournament.
"We were ready to cross that
bridge if we came to it, but we felt
we were getting chances," Burleigh
said. "Had it gone to overtime, we


wouldn't have panicked. But to fin-
ishit in regulation was great."
Even while the Gators were
down a goalin the second half, pan-
icking was never
anjissue.
It was the sixth
time this season
Soccer they weeforced to
win in come-fromn-
behind fashion.
"(Having that experience) makes
it a lot easier at halftime when you
are saying, 'Hey, we've been here
before, we're going to be fine,'"


Burleigh said. "Th~at's a feeling our
(eamb as."
Burleigh said the biggest prob-
lem in the first half was her team not
making the most of its chances.
Even with most of the Crimson
'lide falling back to -prevent the
equalizer in the second period, the
Gators still manufactured opportu-
nities.
First-Team All-SEC member
Megan Kerns was finally able to
take advantage of one of the scor-
ing chances and tie the game at 1
off a cross from Nicky Kit ini the 67th


minute.
"We felt like (a goal) was comic
ing, -whereas some- teams nught
just go, 'Oh, it's just not our rught, "
Burleigh said.
Scoring the second goal~iiefore
regulation ~ended was vital to al-
lowing the Gators to be ready for
their next match against Georgiai
on Friday.
"We needed to get that laist
goal so we didn't have to go into
overtime," Elliott said. "I feel like
overtime in this tournament ba big
factor on everyone's bodies."


Donovan ag-reed to release Lucas after
speaking to him and his mother.
"l hate to see him go, but I want to see him
happy," Donovan said. "There~'s no reason
to go through your career and say, 'HIey, I'm
unhappy every day coming to practice.' That's
no way to live."
The Bellaire, Texas, native is a former
McDonald's All-American and averaged 8.5
points per game for the Gators as a freshman
last year, starting all 36 games.
Lucas' transfer means freshman point


guard Erving Walker will likely become a
major contributor in the
backcourt this season.
Walker, who scored 13
~~lpoints and dished out six
;.;~1~8[ assists against the Royals
on Tuesday, outplayed
Lucas, who went 1 for 9
from the field in his final
Donovan game for UE
"Erving has proved at
least he can be a formidable backup backcourt


player for us, someone we can hopefully rely.
~ori," Donovan said.
The recovery of Adam Allen has suddenly
become more urgent for the Gators.
SAllen has been sidelined with a strained
MCL in his left kn~ee for the last two weeks
and will be held out of tonight's final exhibi-
tion game.
The 6-foot-8 sophomore averaged points
per game in limited playing time last season.
"We need to get Adam Allen healthy,"
Donovan said.


BASKETBALL, < rom page 17

understood Lucas' desire to leave if he did not
feel at home in Gaineesville.
"I'm sure it's something that he's been
thinking about for a while Donovan said.
"As a coach, you realize that these guys only
have certain length of time to play in college,
and the last thing that you want is for him to
be unhappy."
