Early voting in city elections begins today


By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Staff Writer
jhsizemore@alligator.org

As Gainesville voters begin to
head for the polls for city elec-
tions, political activists vie to get
in the last word.
Early voting begins today and
will run through Saturday. Ballots
may be cast at the County Admin-
istration Building, 12 S.E. First St.,
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. On
election day, March 24, voters will
report to their precinct's polling
place.


"We're just making sure we get
that final push before the vote,"
said Eric Conrad, a spokesman for
Equality is Gainesville's Business,
an anti-Amendment 1 organiza-
tion.
The amendment would nullify
Chapter 8 of the Gainesville Code
of Ordinances, titled "Discrimina-
tion." Instead, protections would
be provided by the Florida Civil
Rights Act at the state level.
In effect, this would remove
protected status for transgen-
der, lesbian, gay and bisexual


"We're just making sure we
get that final push before
the vote."
Eric Conrad
Equality is Gainesville's
Business spokesman

Gainesville residents and loosen
protections for other classes.
On Saturday, about 50 people
gathered at the Pride Community
Center on Northwest 13th Street
to prepare people to discuss
Amendment 1 with voters. Vol-


unteers watched as group leaders
demonstrated how to canvass.
The group then split up to
knock on the doors of Gainesville
voters. Volunteers have done this
during several previous week-
ends, but this was definitely the
largest group so far, according to
Conrad.
The anti-amendment group
will also offer free van rides to
student voters from the Reitz
Union to the County Administra-
tion Building this week, an effort
similar to those orchestrated dur-


ing the November elections.
Citizens for Good Public Poli-
cy, the pro-amendment group, is
busy approaching voters as well.
"We are doing all the tradi-
tional campaign get-out-the-vote
activities, which include radio,
TV, and print media," wrote Jim
Gilbert, a Citizens spokesman, in
an e-mail.
"In addition we have vol-
unteers on the ground walking
neighborhoods and holding 'YES
on 1' signs at key locations," he
said


GFR officials


yet to find


cause of fire
* INVESTIGATORS DETERMINED THE
PEACEFUL PATHS FIRE STARTED IN
THE TRAINING ROOM.

By HUNTER SIZEMORE

jhsizemore@alligator.org

The cause of a fire that claimed local non-
profit Peaceful Paths' headquarters and part of
a physician's office will remain
L l undetermined barring any signifi-
L N s cant developments, officials said.
News Gainesville Fire Rescue inves-
tigators have exhausted all avail-
able resources in determining how the build-
ing, which served victims of domestic violence,
caught fire, according to a GFR press release.
Investigators were able to determine that the
fire started in the training room of the Peaceful
Paths building, but the extent of the damage
prevented any further insight.
"Unfortunately, there are times when we are
unable to determine a cause, which can be very
frustrating to both the victims and our person-
nel," said Tim Hayes, deputy fire chief, accord-
ing to the release.
Peaceful Paths has continued to provide
services while relocating to a temporary office
space and has experienced significant commu-
nity support in its time of need, according to the
Peaceful Paths Web site.

Inmates find trash bags full of pot
OCALA (AP) Authorities are trying
to figure out who dropped four 55-gallon
trash bags filled with marijuana by the side
of an Ocala road.
The Marion County Sheriff's Office re-
ports that inmates working with the coun-
ty's solid waste department found the bags
on Thursday. Drug agents say the bags
weighed a total of nearly 65 pounds.

AROUND GAINESVILLE

'Accidental antiquesman' describes work, collection


By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer

John Sikorski is an accidental
antiquesman.
Sikorski, an Ocala antiques ap-
praiser who hosts a weekly radio
show called "Sikorski's Attic" on
WUFT, said that though he has
been interested in antiques all his
life, he "fell" into the business
about 30 years ago.
"It was literally an accident," he
said. "I never set out to be in this
business."
Sikorski said it all started when
his wife started studying engineer-
ing at UF. He was returning to Oc-
ala from Gainesville after a prom-


ising second job interview with
Blue Cross and Blue Shield when
he made a stop.
"Up on 1-75, there was this
big, red antique store," he said. "I
had some spare time, so I decided
to just stop in and see what was
there."
The store's owner was there,
and he and Sikorski talked about
his experience.
"We got to talking, and I told
him about the job. He said, 'Well,
it'd be better if you'd come to work
for me here,'" he said. "So he hired
me on the spot."
The store was Wayside An-
tiques, and Sikorski worked there
for about 10 years, during which
time he picked up valuable experi-


ence, he said.
Sikorski then opened his own
antique shop, which he ran un-
til he opened his appraisal office
about 10 years ago.
"It was literally an
accident. I never set out to
be in this business."
John Sikorski
Host, "Sikorski's Attic"

He decided to begin appraising
after he realized that the buying
and selling of antiques wasn't as
lucrative as it once was.
"Along came the Internet, and
you no longer needed to have a re-


tail store," he said. "But there are
a lot of people out there who have
things but have no way of finding
out what they're worth."
In addition to "Sikorski's Attic"
and his downtown appraisal office,
a tangled mix of eclectic findings
and books from which he studies
to stay up-to-date on the business,
he writes question-and-answer
columns for the Gainesville Sun,
the Ocala Star-Banner and the Cit-
rus County Chronicle.
Sikorski also provides a walk-
through service for people who
want many items in their houses
appraised.
"It's a conversation about
things in their homes with regard
to collector interest and dollar val-


ues," he said, adding that he also
offers advice on how best to sell
antiques.
Despite having traveled the
world collecting and studying an-
tiques, Sikorski said he never loses
interest because of the variety of
items he comes across.
So far, Sikorski said, the most
interesting item he has come
across is a footlong hardened wal-
rus penis, called an usik, which sits
in a glass case in his office. Smiling
impishly, he held out the item for
examination before explaining its
significance.
"From one minute to the next,
you never know what's going to
come in. It's always different," he
said. "I love it all."

$1M grant will repair


aging rental homes


ByYVONNE AYALA
Alligator Contributing Writer

The MacArthur Foundation awarded
a $1 million grant last week to the Florida
Partnership to preserve aging rental units
in the state.
Because of the recent foreclosure crisis,
rental housing has become more impor-
tant. And the real estate bubble's burst
makes it smarter to preserve aging hous-
ing than to build new ones. This market
shift guides the way Florida Partnership
plans to use the donated funds.
"Traditionally the way Florida has
dealt with affordable housing has been
through new construction," said Cecka
Green, communications director for the
Florida Housing Finance Corporation.
"With the housing market, the bubble has
burst, and there's a lot of stock that's al-
ready out there. We are looking to prop-
erly preserve units that are already built
and have an affordability, because we
don't want to lose that."
About 71 percent of extremely low-
income renter households in Florida paid
more than 40 percent of their income for
rent in 2007, according to the MacArthur
Foundation's Web site.
The Florida Partnership includes the
UF Shimberg Center for Housing Stud-
ies, the Florida Housing Finance Corpo-
ration and the Florida Housing Coalition.
Florida was one of 12 cities and states to
receive the foundation's Window of Op-
portunity grant, which awarded $32.5
million to help agencies preserve more
than 70,000 low-income rental homes na-
tionwide.
The Florida Partnership aims to pre-

2019, focusing on seniors and people with
disabilities, Green said.
The UF Shimberg Center will receive
$500,000 to research and help the state
decide what rental housing stock has a
greater need for preservation.
"We're looking specifically at rental
housing that's privately owned and pub-
licly subsidized," said Anne Ray, a lead-
ing researcher at the Shimberg Center.
"Many of those properties are at risk of
rising rents, demolition or
Local at risk of losing subsidies
News from the government."
The Shimberg Center
will also research which tenants are most
affected and the role private unsubsidized
stock plays in providing affordable hous-
ing to Florida's communities, Ray said.
The Florida Housing Coalition was
awarded $475,000 to educate and train
state nonprofit organizations to acquire,
rehabilitate and manage long-term af-
fordable rental housing for extremely
low-income populations, said Jaimie
Ross, president of the Florida Housing
Coalition.
The Florida Housing Finance Corpo-
ration was awarded $25,000 to support
peer networking activities for nonprofit
and for-profit developers to help them
rehabilitate aging privately owned prop-
erties with expiring subsidies.
"If those units don't receive the proper
attention that they need, we could lose a
significant portion of our affordable hous-
ing stock," Green said. "The MacArthur
grant provides us with the catalyst we
need to be moving in the right direction
to achieve that goal."

STUDENT LIFE

Study suggests that doodling may aid in retention


By AMANDA MILLIGAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

If Deborah Kenner has paper in front of
her, she's probably doodling.
While in class, the UF sophomore draws
her name, flowers and squiggly designs while
listening to lectures.
"I always pay attention," Kenner said.
Now she has evidence. According to a re-
cent study from the University of Plymouth in
England, doodling can aid concentration and
may prove beneficial in remembering infor-
mation.
The study, published in late February, con-
sisted of two groups of 20 people one in-


structed to doodle, one not who listened to
a mock telephone message. Participants in the
doodle group recalled 29 percent more than
the participants in the non-doodle group.
"I've gone through stages when
I've tried not to doodle, but it really
just helps me pay attention more."
Deborah Kenner
UF sophomore and in-class doodler

Kenner said she was not surprised.
"I've gone through stages when I've tried
not to doodle, but it really just helps me pay
attention more," she said.


Kenneth Heilman, a clinical professor of
neurology and health psychology at UF, feels
the same way.
"I'm a big doodler," Heilman said. "If I
don't doodle, I fall asleep. Doodling keeps me
alert and awake."
Glen Finney, an assistant professor in UF's
department of neurology, doodles mazes and
paisley-like patterns when listening to lectures.
Doodling allows people to back away from
strong thoughts and relax, allowing weaker
brain connections to be activated, he said.
"That's a way to find new ideas and not get
locked into old ideas," he said.
An example is when a student takes a test.
Finney said when an answer keeps popping


into a student's head, but he know it's wrong,
he needs to relax and allow other brain con-
nections to activate in order to think of other
possible answers.
"Doodling allows you to sort of be weakly
aroused," Finney said, "but it's not so detain-
ing that you're highly aroused."
Although he said some people use doo-
dling to keep themselves active and paying at-
tention, others might use doodling as an outlet
for their creative urges.
Kenner said she occasionally doodles out of
boredom, but it's on a whole different level.
"Those are more drawings than doodling,"
she said. "I take out a whole piece of paper
and stop paying attention."

Bottomless Break

Spring Break doesn't

have to end today.
Welcome back for the home stretch of the spring semes-
ter a mere five weeks remain until the endless pos-
sibilities of summer embrace you with open arms.
Whether you were avoiding Mexican drug cartels like the
plague or sneaking into private 40th-birthday parties held in
honor of B-list celebrities, we can safely assume that you caught
up on some much-overdue partying. Now that you are back,
we hope you are ready to attack the remainder of the semester
with the fervor of a Santa Monica street performer preying on
the wallets of unsuspecting tourists donning the latest offerings
in fanny pack fashion.
But if you're like us, you might find yourself wary of letting
the party end even if your bank account took a bigger hit
than a right hook to the jugular from Rampage Jackson.
Ah, the great dilemma of achieving balance; it befuddles
even the craftiest members of The Gator Nation. We are only
kidding ourselves if the goal for the remainder of the semes-
ter fails to include concocting a seven-step handshake with that
I-heard-he-can-bench-press-the-world bouncer manning the
door at the Grog House along with a 3.5 GPA.
Slap, clap, fist pound, shimmy, crazy fingers, chest bump,
high five!
With your grades in mind and your social lives our foremost
concern, the Editorial Board bestows upon you three gems of
wisdom to help you live out the tagline from "Entourage" in
your everyday life. Like Vince, Ari and the boys, maybe you,
too, can have it all.
You probably caught yourself wondering why on your re-
turn flight home you were a beef torta or two away from having
to sheepishly ask the flight attendant for a seat belt extension.
Sure, you were never going to confuse anyone for McDreamy,
but trust us when we say the Spring Break Diet and South Beach
Diet are not two distant cousins.
Now that you're back in Gainesville, say goodbye to filet mi-
gnon and Fiji artesian water, and learn to make fast friends with
the dumpster behind Leo's. We hear if you time it just right, you
might even be able to score some marinara sauce to keep your
oh-so-fresh half-eaten rolls company.
While nothing can replace getting your groove on at a club
in Acapulco with some nameless coed as the beer flows like
wine, who says you can't recreate the same magic right here in
Gainesville? Everyone knows that the prime-time nights to pe-
ruse the social offerings of our fine city fall within the trifecta of
Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights -but let's think outside
the box for a minute.
Generally recognized as a time to get work done and conjure
imagery of another lost weekend, Monday evenings are this
season's new black. Head down to Common Grounds for a few
rounds of free PBR, and keep the party going while you channel
your inner Meat Loaf, telling the world that you will, in fact, do
anything for love.
Didn't do the reading for econ and you want to pretend that
you are an active contributor to your class discussion? Say it
slowly with us now, folks: T-A-N-G-E-N-T God's gift to un-
derachieving students everywhere.
Even if you haven't been blessed with the gift of gab, posing
questions to the class vaguely related to the topic at hand can
quickly have your professor thinking you are the next "Good
Will Hunting." Nothing beats racking up the participation
points effort-free while your classmates sneer at you after giv-
ing up their Tuesday night to pore over hours of listless jargon.
What are you waiting for? Hit the streets hard and the books
not so much, fellow demigod.
But if you're not up for the challenge, just take solace in the
fact that debauchery will soon rear its ugly head once again.
Only 51 more weeks until Spring Break 2010.

Stewart puts Cramer in rightful place


nline news outlets apparently yanked their the-
sauruses out from beneath their beds last Thurs-
day, labeling Jon Stewart's interview of CNBC's
"Mad Money" host Jim Cramer with headlines such as
"Stewart Eviscerates Cramer, CNBC," and "Jon Stewart
Thrashes Jim Cramer."
Anyone who watched the interview knows that it
wasn't in typical Stewartesque fashion. The host of "The
Daily Show" didn't josh around with Cramer; he indig-
nantly crucified him and his network.
Last Thursday Cramer became the regrettable face of
everything that's wrong with modern journalism, and
worst yet, Stewart epitomized everything that's right.
CNBC, with its programs and pundits that speculate
on financial news, doesn't seem to fully appreciate the
power it holds in swaying consumer confidence and
upholding the idea of Wall Street responsibility. They
have championed the senseless idea that money can
be instantaneous, or fast, or even mad elevating the
shady 3 a.m. easy-money infomercial to prime-time sta-
tus and labeling it as American as apple pie.
But Stewart's a populist. He may have mocked CN-
BC's Rick Santelli's live populist appeal to the traders
on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade, but by no
means is "The Daily Show" a leader in social thought.
The show is nothing more than the proverbial French
radical who spots an angry mob passing by and says,
"There go my people, I must find them so I can lead
them."
Today, the angry mob is pointing its pitchforks at the
world of Wall Street and financial news networks, but
yesterday they were ready to torch the regular news me-
dia for not paying more attention to the flimsy case for


war in Iraq. Even then, it was
Stewart who led the bastion of
ragtag flamethrowers, scolding
Tucker Carlson and Paul Begala
on the since-canceled CNN pro-
gram "Crossfire" for denigrat-
ing our political system into an
Matthew Christ obnoxious shouting match.
letters@alligator.org Something is seriously
wrong when our nation's court
jester has to point out the fail-
ings of our political and financial leaders. But it's no
surprise that we've come to this point. The Internet has
allowed anyone, even crazy people, to not only have an
opinion but shout it out to the world. If you want, you
could comment on this very column online, and then
comment on a news article on nytimes.com. It's no won-
der that the popularity of television opinion programs
have exploded in recent years. Opining has become an
art that anyone can practice, and it seems that news
conglomerates have pushed the prestige and credibil-
ity of news programs aside for the ratings of opinion
programs.
There is a place for opinion, for speculation, but it's
typically labeled as such. There is also a place for biting
investigative journalism that uncovers the hypocrisy
and shady dealings of our world, something that seems
to be in small supply today. Something that Stewart
and Co. capitalized on last week, as the ratings of "Mad
Money" plummeted and "The Daily Show" soared.
And I didn't need a thesaurus to figure that one out.

Comedy Central guilty of boasting bad acts


Letters to the Editor
UF e-mail fails to deliver
I do not understand how
UF has an extraordinary main
Web site, but our e-mail service
is nothing short of rubbish.
There have been innumer-
able times that I have tried to
go to my e-mail and could not
access it.
Sometimes I need to open
an attachment for a class, but
WebMail is not working -
what a surprise.
I ask for the talented men
and women working in com-
puting services and people in
the Student Government on
campus to address this issue, to
learn from the masters: Gmail,
Hotmail.
Thousands depend on this
vital service to our education
that seems to be ignored.

here have been a ton of hard-hitting
Sitems in the news lately: President Ba-
i rack Obama has pushed forward stem-
cell research, the chairman of the Republican
National Committee announced that he's pro-
choice and Jon Stewart nearly made Jim Cra-
mer wet his pants. That's all well and good,
but I want to talk about something that's re-
ally been on my mind. Sunday, Comedy Cen-
tral roasted Daniel Lawrence Whitney bet-
ter known as Larry the Cable Guy and I
shed a tear for comedy.
I was OK when they decided to roast Jeff
Foxworthy. I don't like his stuff but there's
no denying that more than being popular
- he made a contribution to the medium of
comedy by opening the door for all this hor-
rible redneck stuff that's out there now a la
the "Blue Collar Comedy Tour." I'm not hap-
py about his impact, but the fact remains that
he's had one. Larry the Cable Guy, however,
has done nothing except march across the
country with his admittedly fake accent (look
for clips of Whitney on you tube before he
invented Larry he can actually speak Eng-
lish and shout "git-r-done." Well, that's not
entirely fair. He unleashed some unforgivable
movies on the public, as well. And his lowest-
common-denominator brand of comedy has


been devoured by
the legions of the un-
washed.
Let me make one
thing perfectly clear:
This is no good-na-
tured ribbing. This
Eric Chianese is not a continuation
Speaking Out of his roast. This is
an exhortation for
Whitney to retire
permanently from the comedic arts and take
his alter ego back behind the shed and shoot
it if I had my way, he would have to pay
some form of reparations as well.
But really, I don't think this terrible,
nonredneck comedian is the problem. I think
he's a symptom of what's really at the core
of all this: the glorification of his brand of
lowest-common-denominator comedy. Two
examples besides Whitney stick out in my
mind, and they are Carlos Mencia (given
name: Ned) and Dane Cook. If I have to listen
to Mencia call someone "dee-dee-dee" one
more time, I'm going to cry. Cook, the dar-
ling of superfans everywhere, is even worse.
Most of the time he doesn't even tell a joke
- no, jumping around as you illuminate one
extended, digression-ridden anecdote doesn't

count. Occasionally, he'll include a punch
line, but here's a news flash: Cook steals his
jokes. He doesn't "borrow," he doesn't "im-
prove upon," he just steals. Get over it.
Stand-up comedy is one of my favorite
things. I fell in love with it at a young age
when I first saw a "Comedy Central Pres-
ents" special for Kathleen Madigan. A whole
world of brilliant, ironic, thought-provoking,
subversive and, most importantly, hilarious
ideas was opened to me. When I see the likes
of Cook, Mencia and Whitney selling out
shows, I just know that Bill Hicks and George
Carlin are turning over in their graves.
I would like to hope that the popularity of
these hacks and that's just what they are -
simply comes from a lack of known alterna-
tives. Luckily, there are many. Patton Oswalt,
Eugene Mirman and Louis C.K. are all still
performing. Give them a chance. They're the
future of the comedy tradition the way Car-
lin, Hicks, Pryor and Rickles were the past.
I want to take this opportunity to ask
Comedy Central to stop selling its soul in
a Faustian bargain to popular hackdom. It
hurts all of us. That's the important thing for
the week.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Gators get NIT berth


By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
Alligator Staff Writer
mdiferdinando@alligator.org

For the second straight season,
the Gators failed to make the NCAA
Tournament.
UF (23-10, 9-7 Southeastern Con-
ference) did make history, though,
becoming the first team since Michi-
gan State in 1980 to be left out of the
field for two consecutive years after
winning a national title.
Any hopes the Gators had of
making it to the Big Dance were
dashed after Friday's 61-58 loss to
Auburn in the quarterfinals of the
SEC Tournament.
UF had an RPI of 51, the 86th-
best strength of schedule, one win
against a top-50 RPI team (Pacific-10
Conference regular-season cham-
pion Washington) and a 2-6 road
record in conference games.
"We obviously didn't do
enough," forward Dan Wemer said
following the loss to Auburn. "We
could have put ourselves in if we
would have won (the SEC) touma-


ment."
UF coach Billy Donovan said all
season that being a year older didn't
necessarily make his team a year
better.
It turns out he was right.
UF suffered another late-season
collapse, losing seven of its last 12
games, and missed several opportu-
nities to lock up an NCAA bid.
The Gators lost eight of their last
11 games last season.
UF has accepted a bid to play
in the National Invitation Tourna-
ment and will host Jacksonville on
Wednesday in the opening round at
8p.m.
If they win, the Gators will face
the winner of No. 4-seed Miami and
No. 5-seed Providence.
The Gators are the No. 1 seed in
their region and will host the first
two rounds of the tournament.
UF is also the first school ever
to follow up back-to-back national
championships with back-to-back
NIT appearances.

No. 18 Arkansas completes weekend sweep of UF


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

Arkansas pitcher Jarrod McKinney isn't on the soccer team,
but he showed some kicking ability Sunday.
With the game tied at 2 in the bottom of the eighth and a
runner on third, McKinney struck out on a pitch in the dirt
from Patrick Keating (2-3, 3.57 ERA).
On his way to first, he booted the ball away from UF catcher
Buddy Munroe, allowing Ben Tschepikow to score from third,
carrying the No. 18 Razorbacks to a 4-2 win and completing
the sweep of the Gators (9-7, 0-3 Southeastern Conference) in


"All he had to do was ask for some help, and
he may have gotten the call right."
Brad Weitzel
UF assistant baseball coach

Fayetteville, Ark.
Arguments from Munroe, Keating and UF coach Kevin
O'Sullivan who was ejected for arguing proved futile.
Home-plate umpire Joe Marion was unwilling to listen to any
complaints about McKinney's kicking and did not request help
from the other umpires.
"All he had to do was ask for some help, and he may have


gotten the call right," UF assistant coach Brad Weitzel said.
"But the runner that scored we walked to lead off the inning,
so we got to go back to that point first instead of blaming it on
the umpire."
The Gators got an outstanding start from freshman lefty
Nick Maronde, who struck out five and allowed just 1 earned
run over five innings.
But the team could not give Maronde much run support or
defensive help.
The defense committed six errors, including two each by
third baseman Mike Mooney and Munroe, who didn't enter
the game until the eighth.

Heartbreak in team locker room represents season-long struggles


TAMPA
T he room reeked of heartbreak.
As you might imagine, the St.
Pete Times Forum locker room that
housed the UF men's basketball team fresh
off its crushing 61-58 defeat at the hands of
Auburn on Friday night was not very wel-
coming.
It felt like a child asking his parents why
they were splitting up.
There are many small reasons a last-
second loss to Auburn being the final straw
- but it is never as simple as one of these.


There is always a
bigger picture.
The snapshot of
the Gators locker
room looked some-
thing like this:
Phil Kegler On your left sits
Phil on the Hill Walter Hodge, the se-
pkegler@alligator.org nior who just watched
his last shot at getting
back to the NCAA Tournament fail. Next
to him is Nick Calathes, the Gators' best
player, who flamed out down the stretch.


Panning to the right brings Dan Werner
and Alex Tyus into focus, two "big" men
who each played out of position yet gave
their all. Then finally, directly to your right,
is the inconsolable man, Erving Walker.
Hodge may feel like he failed this team
and his coach. The lone holdover from the
back-to-back national championship teams,
he was the veteran who linked those glory
years with the rebuilding ones.
But the man who has won more than
anyone else in UF men's basketball history
couldn't turn his teammates into similar


winners.
The Gators lost 10 games this season,
and only one of those was by double dig-
its (79-63 at Tennessee on Jan. 31). Eight of
them were decided by 6 points or fewer.
"They need to learn how to win," coach
Billy Donovan said of his team. "Just be-
cause you're a year older doesn't mean
you're a year better."
As soon as Calathes confidently stated
he thought his team would make the Tour-

Wilks leads UF men to second place in NCAA Indoors


* THE SOPHOMORE BROKE THE UF
RECORD IN THE 60-METER DASH.

By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer
Lately for Terrell Wilks, another week
means another school record.
After notching an automatic-qualifying
time in the Virginia Tech Qualifier on March
7, Wilks continued his record-breaking per-
formances in last weekend's NCAA Indoor
Championships in College Station, Texas.
Wilks ran a 6.59 in the preliminaries of the
60-meter dash and finished third in the finals


of the event.
Wilks' school-record-setting performance
in Texas helped UF's men to their best NCAA
Indoors finish since 2005.
UF's men finished as runners-up with
36 points behind NCAA-champion Oregon,
which had 54 points. The women's team fin-
ished the Indoor Championships tied for 12th
place.
Wilks' 60-meter time was his new personal
best and UF's new record for the event.
"While we are pleased with being second
in the country, we are not satisfied," UF coach
Mike Holloway said. "There's still work to do,
and we still have the ability to get better. But
we are very pleased with what's going on, and


everybody is excited about getting outdoors
and trying to get better."
Despite coming up one place short, UF's
track and field program is moving in a posi-
tive direction, much to Hollo-
Sway's pleasure.
"I don't think there's any-
body in the program that
Men's wanted to be second, but sec-
ond's better than third, and
Track a lot of teams are aspiring to
be second, so the program is
definitely moving in the right direction," Hol-
loway said.
Wilks' recent performances are a direct
result of his hard work and may come as a


surprise to some because of his late start in the
sport.
He was a football and basketball player
before adding track to his resume as a high
school senior.
Subsequently, Wilks has had to put in extra
work to hone his track skills.
"He's still learning the intricacies of run-
ning the sprints, and as he learns more, he
catches on to things. He's just gonna get better
and better," Holloway said. "What people are
seeing in the last couple weeks is just Terrell
starting to really understand what it takes to
be a good sprinter, and he now has the three
fastest times ever run by a Gator in the 60, so
we're pretty excited about that."

Southeastern Conference nets just three bids in NCAA Tournament


HOOPS, from page 13


Before last season, Donovan had not
coached in the NIT since 1998.
"We're grateful for the opportunity to con-
tinue our season at the NIT," Donovan said
in a statement. "We're looking forward to the
opportunity to continue to practice and grow


as a team."
UF made it to Madison Square Garden and
the NIT semifinals in New York last season be-
fore losing to Massachusetts.
The NCAA selection committee was not
kind to the SEC this year. Only three teams
from the conference made the tournament, the
fewest since 1990.
Tennessee, a No. 9 seed, will face No. 8 seed


Oklahoma State. LSU, a No. 8 seed, will face
No. 9-seed Butler. Mississippi State, which
earned an automatic bid by winning the SEC
Tournament on Sunday afternoon against
Tennessee, earned a No. 13 seed and will face
No. 4-seed Washington.
Auburn looked like it might have played
its way into the field after winning nine of its
last 11 games and knocking off UF in the con-


ference tournament. But the Tigers failed to
land a spot in the Big Dance as well.
In a teleconference earlier this month, SEC
Commissioner Mike Slive said he didn't think
a conference's RPI would be a determining
factor when deciding which schools would
receive at-large bids, but the SEC ranks sixth
overall in Conference RPI and last among the
major conferences.


Maronde's pitching performance lone bright spot for Gators in series


BASEBA LL, son Friday and lasted only 3 1/3 innings before being yanked.

some poor defense," Weitzel said. "This is a beautiful field. Saturday's starter, Alex Panteliodis (2-2,
There is no way you can make six errors on a beautiful field 6.50 ERA), couldn't even make it out of the
like this." Baseball second inning before being relieved because of
Maronde's quality outing was the first UF got from a starter the 5 runs he allowed in the Gators' 8-4 loss.
this weekend. UF's bats couldn't get much going, either.
Billy Bullock (0-1, 1.84 ERA) made his first start of the sea- Entering Sunday's game, the Gators were near the bottom of


every offensive category in the SEC.
Outfielders Avery Barnes and Riley Cooper were the only
UF players to record at least one hit in each game this week-
end.
They provided the Gators with a little bit of power, each
smacking a solo home run in the series Cooper on Friday
and Barnes on Sunday.
After a great opening weekend against then-No. 23 Louis-
ville, UF has now dropped six straight against ranked oppo-
nents Miami is currently No. 13 and Arkansas is No. 18.


PHIL, from page 13

nament, his play sank.
He scored 34 points combined
in UF's final four games. He had
previously racked up 33 points at
Kentucky on Feb. 10.
Give him credit for not making
any excuses. Teams started guard-
ing UF differently on the pick-
and-roll, Calathes' bread and but-
ter, and fatigue likely set in for the


starter who played 33 minutes.
It's hard to criticize a generally
amicable guy, but you can't avoid
pointing out that Calathes let his
team down. That is the power of
guarantees: You're a hero if you
live up to them, but you must face
the music if you don't.
"The thing you love about him
is Nick is such a competitor,"
Donovan said. "He wants to take
all that on, and I'd rather have a


guy like that."
Then again, it may have been
Calathes' own will that effectively
stopped him.
Fierce competitors hate to lose.
When they fall behind or perform
poorly, they push themselves
harder in an attempt to will the
outcome in their favor.
There is a downside to this,
though, and his recent slump
shows you can't always "try"


your way out of a hole.
"Sometimes guys go in to a
game with their mind made up
of how they're going to play, and
what they're going to try to do
instead of allowing the game to
come to themselves," Donovan
said. "Nick's got to allow it to
come a little bit more."
So now the Gators enter the
NIT. They may go far, or they
might face an early exit.

While UF tries to find its con-
sistent, winning ways again, there
may be more sights like Friday
night in the future.
Hodge, the proven winner,
comforting Walker, the clutch
freshman whose potential game-
tying shot had just fallen short.
I imagine he might say what a
soon-to-be divor cee might:
It's not your fault. There is a
bigger picture.

Women await tourney bid


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC

The Gators won't be sweating it out
tonight.
On this Selection Monday, the UF
women's basketball team will not be wor-
ried about bubble talk and being left out
of March Madness like it was last season.
The No. 21 Gators (23-7, 9-5 Southeast-
ern Conference) are a lock to make this
year's NCAA Tournament.
So when the brackets are revealed
tonight at 7 on ESPN, UF will be more
concerned about who, when and where
it will be playing in the first round later
this week.
The Gators, once projected as high as a
No. 3 seed by ESPN.com's Charlie Creme,
have lost some ground over the last four
weeks.
Creme has them as a No. 7 seed in his
latest version of Bracketology, his daily
predictions of the field of 64.
UF fell a few spots when they dropped
five of their last six games, including a
quarterfinal loss to the Tennessee in the
SEC Tournament on March 6.
Though UF appears to be slumping
at the worst possible time, it showed
glimpses of its early season brilliance in
the second half against Tennessee.
After trailing by 17 at the break, the


Gators rallied to within 3 points with less
than three minutes remaining.
Despite winning the second half 46-
33, the Gators eventually fell 71-67 to the
Volunteers.
UF coach Amanda Butler, however,
was proud of her team's second-half ef-
fort.
"If that Florida team shows up (in the
NCAA Tournament), then we're not just
in position to beat a great team like Ten-
nessee, but we whipped
them in the second half,"
Butler said.
"We whipped them
Women's in the second half like
Basketball they whipped us in the
first half."
Butler added that
even though the Gators came up short
in their conference tournament, she saw
the trouble her team could cause in the
NCAA Tournament if it plays an entire
game the way it did in the second half
against the Volunteers.
"As disappointing as this is to be leav-
ing here with a loss right now, I also think
that there's a lot to build on going into the
postseason," Butler said after the loss.
If the Gators get the No. 7 seed as
Creme projects, they will face a No. 10
seed in the first round and would have a
potential second-round matchup with a
No. 2 seed.


UF SOFTBALL

Nelson throws no-hitter


By ADAM BERRY

Stacey Nelson has seemingly done
it all in her four years at UF. Sunday,
she accomplished something even she
previously thought impossible.
Nelson threw her first career no-
hitter in No. 1 UF's 4-0 win at Missis-
sippi on Sunday. The senior pitched
two complete-game shutouts and led
the Gators (27-2, 8-0 Southeastern
Conference) to a weekend sweep of
the Rebels (11-12, 0-6 SEC) in Oxford,
Miss.
Despite a pitcher's usual practice of
not focusing on or talking about a po-
tential no-hitter, Nelson admitted her
mind kept wandering back to the idea
of her first career no-hitter.
"I didn't believe it until that last
out," she said. "I always had a joke
that no-hitters just weren't my thing."
Nelson (14-2, 0.40 ERA) also made
her way into the NCAA record books
by improving her career record to 109-
33, tied for 25th on the NCAA all-time
wins list with Jennie Finch, who won
109 games for Arizona.
Ali Gardiner hit an RBI double to
center in the first inning to start the
scoring for the Gators on Sunday.
Shortstop Megan Bush added to the
lead in the fourth with her seventh
home run of the season. Later that


inning, second baseman Aja Paculba
knocked in the final run of the game
with a double down the left-field line.
Nelson's first victory of the week-
end came in the Gators' 2-0 win in
Game 1 of their doubleheader Satur-
day. UF's ace gave up five hits and
struck out 10.
Nelson traded zeros with Missis-
sippi pitcher Becky Nye until the sixth
inning, when Gardiner launched a
solo home run over
the scoreboard in
right-center field for
the first run of the
game.
"Hitting is conta-
gious, so once you
Nelson get one hit, the next
few will come and
open up the game," Gardiner said.
"It changed the momentum for
sure."
Nelson struck out the side in the
bottom of the sixth, and Aja Paculba
added an insurance run with a single
up the middle that drove in Michelle
Moultrie in the seventh inning.
The Gators took that late-game mo-
mentum at the plate into Game 2 and
put 12 runs on the board.
Sophomore Stephanie Brombacher
(13-0, 0.79 ERA) followed up Nelson's
performance with a shutout of her
own and allowed only four hits while
striking out seven batters.
