OConnell Center on Thursday at 8 p.m. Meyers will receive $50,000 to perform stand-up comedy and answer questions from audience members. Accent chairman Corey Portnoy said they decided on Meyers because he began his career in college and might be able to reach out to aspiring entertainers at UF. We also chose him because he is a head writer for Saturday Night Live, which is a show that has had tremendous success for many years, he said. Tickets are not required for the free event.

TUESDAY, MARCH 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 3 HE WORKS FOR THE TAMPA BAY TIMES. KRISTEN MORRELLAlligator Contributing WriterStudents can discuss recent changes made by the Florida Legislature with a political jour nalist today at the Bob Graham Center in Pugh Hall. Steve Bousquet, who covers state government for the Tampa Bay Times, will share his thoughts on a bill that could allow UF to increase tuition by more than 15 percent, an approximate $300 million cut in the State University System and the creation of a 12th state university. Primarily, we want to know what impact these changes will have on Florida citizens, said Gail Sasnett-Stauffer, assistant director for public programs at the Bob Graham Center. After the presentation, audience members will be able to ask Bousquet questions about the legislative session and its effects. Journalists like Steve Bousquet increasingly serve as the institutional memory of the Florida Legislature and, more broadly, politics in the state of Florida, said UF political science professor Daniel A. Smith. The discussion, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 6 p.m. There will be 250 to 275 seats available in the Bob Graham Center, Sasnett-Stauffer said.Journalist to discuss covering state legislatureON CAMPUS JULIA GLUMAlligator WriterWhen UF sophomore Opeola Bukola sits down to do her assigned reading, she doesnt drop a stack of textbooks on her desk she just taps on her tablet. The telecommunication and agricultural communications and leadership development 20-year-old has three textbooks and 14 leisure books on her Kindle Fire. Bukola loves to e-read, and shes not alone. Tablet ownership has more than tripled among college students in the past year, according to the Pearson Foundations second annual Survey on Students and Tablets. More students are reading digital books, according to the survey. It showed that 63 percent of college students believe tablets will replace textbooks within the At UF, student interest in digital books is growing each semester. But changes arent happening over night, according to information provided by Haleigh Morgan, a spokeswoman for Follett Higher Education Group. Follett operates the UF Bookstore. Of the students who have used digital textbooks, two-thirds prefer them to print, Morgan wrote in an email. The number of professors who submitted book or ders for digital textbooks has increased. Follett expects this trend to continue, she said. About two years ago, a team of UF Health Science Center Library researchers investigated how they could provide student services on e-readers. They compared the Amazon Kindle, the Barnes & Noble Nook and the Sony Digital Reader. The team found problems across different platforms, said Clifford Richmond, the librarys director of information technology. Now, there are many more devices, but the need for some standardization in published electronic resources still stands, Richmond said. He said the lack of available digital textbooks is whats keeping the market from growing even more. The driving force is going to be that the publishers come up with a pricing scheme that does not make it any less attractive monetarily, he said. For Bukola, digital book prices were not cheaper in all cases, but the convenience was worth it. The instant accessibility actually makes her read school books more often, she said. When I cant be on the Internet on my Kindle, I need something else to do, Bukola said. My textbooks are always right there.

MONTHLY MORTGAGE PAYMENTS ARE ABOUT THE SAME AS MONTHLY RENT PAYMENTS, REALTORS SAY. ADRIANNA PAIDASAlligator WriterAs the housing market improves, some city realtors say it is now more realistic and cheaper for students to buy houses or condominiums in Gainesville instead of renting one. Not many students are buying into the bid, saying the short-term savings arent worth the long-term responsibility and cost. Because interest rates are at an all-time low, a homeowners monthly mortgage payments on a house or condominium are roughly the same as monthly rent payments, said Richard Schackow, real estate broker and president of Schackow Real Estate and Development LLC. Market conditions are currently favorable because of record-low mortgage interest rates and rising rent prices, said Lawrence Yun, chief economist and senior vice president of research at the National Association of Realtors, in a news release. Now is clearly the time to buy instead of rent, especially if students know they are going to be in years, said Tracy Storms, a realtor at Alligator Realty Inc. For some students, the cheap monthly payments that come with buying a home are pointless because they still have to put down a large initial payment upon purchase. Down payments range from about $6,000 to about $20,000 or more, depending on the size of the house and the loan received, Schackow said. Mike Leonard said the down payment would deter him from even considering buying a house or condominium. Yes, monthly payments are comparable, but you have to put way more money down when you buy a house, the 20-year-old biology junior said. Im not going to spend that kind of money on something Im going to use 5 percent of my life. Laura McLeran said she doesnt want the responsibility of taking care of her own house, nor does she want to go through the hassle of selling it when the time comes, espemarket. I like having a landlord to take care of all that, the 21-year-old mar keting senior said. Since November, Storms and Ben Goldberg, another realtor at Alligator Realty Inc., have sold 13 condominiums to students the most they have ever sold in a four-month period since 2008. Five years ago, Schackow developed Forest Creek, a 28-lot subdivision located on Northwest 34th Avenue. Out of that count, eight of the homes have been sold and built. Four more have been sold over the last few months but are in the midst of construction. Homes in the subdivision currently range from $139,900 to $300,000. Potential buyers who have their eye on a $139,900 house in the subdivision will currently pay $956.61 per month for a three-bedroom, twobathroom space. The monthly mortgage payment factors in a common 30-year loan that covers 95 percent of the property value. Those who rent apartments in The Enclave Apartments, a complex about 3 miles from UF, pay $1,575 rent per month to rent a three-bedroom and three-bathroom space, according to Isabella Jebian, leasing specialist at The Enclave. The price includes utilities, cable and fees. Rent is usually split among those living in the space, so the monthly payment is divided among roommates. Owning a place is feasible for students who are planning to stay in Gainesville for graduate school or to work because they stand to make money off the house if its value increases, Schackow said. Students should not dwell on the down payment because, he said, the investments to be made on owning a home outweigh the initial payments. The difference is that you sink all this money into paying rent, and at the end of your three or four years, you have nothing to show for it, Schackow said. Although she understood that mentality, Carley Fuller said there is no point in buying a house when she isnt going to stay in Gainesville for long. I cant justify buying a house when Im only going to school here, the 20-year-old sophomore said. I would only consider it if I got a job here after college. Camilla Savanti thought differ ently. The 24-year-old UF dental student has been living in a condominium she owns for the past year. She said her family wanted to take advantage of the low housing prices. Its just cheaper to own, Savanti said. And at the end of the day, you will have something to re-sell.

Some realtors are saying that now is the time to buy, not rent, in Gainesville. Realtors say now is the time to buy, but students disagree SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterA Gainesville man was ar rested Sunday night and accused of hitting a police dog after it tracked him down during a foot chase. James Cantrall Grant, 33, was charged with striking a police violence and being a habitual Gainesville Police arrest report. Around 10 p.m. Sunday, OfGrant immediately got out of the car and started walking away. Grant ignored him and ran into a heavily wooded area near Southeast 10th Avenue. A K-9 unit arrived on the scene after GPD learned Grant and had an active warrant. His license was revoked in 1996. The warrant was for violating his parole in failing to register as a sex offender, according to the report. After tracking Grant for about a quarter of a mile through thick palmetto bushes, Justice, the dog, found Grant hiding in a free, Grant pulled on Justices head and then punched Justice multiple times, according to police. After the had a cut snout and Grant had a leg wound. Grants mother, who answered a phone number provided by Grant, said she didnt know what happened. She said she went to Shands at UF on Sunday to see her son but he was under police custody. Grant was still in jail without bond as of press time.

The Tips from Former Smokers ads will appear on billboards, TV, radio, online, in print and in theaters across the U.S. for at least 12 weeks in an effort to discourage smoking, according to a CDC news release. The campaign kicked off Monday. Some experts question how effective the campaign will be, especially for the college-age audience. I was actually kind of surprised that the CDC Health Promotion Services Director Shirley Haber man said. Research has really dissuaded against using fear-based tactics. The ads use graphic images to share the personal stories of smokers who have suffered from various smoking-related diseases. One ad shows a 31-year-old amputee who lost his legs to Buergers disease, a result of smoking. Another ad uses a photo of a former smoker shaving. Referring to the quarter-sized hole in his neck, it says, Be careful not to cut your stoma. Haberman said UF has a relatively low number of smokers and that the schools smoking cessation programs help students quit. However, students dont necessarily think that the ad campaign is the best method of convincing smokers to quit. Elizabeth Lopez, a 19-year-old marketing and psychology sophomore, said the ads offer a good message, but she said she doubts its long-term success. People are going to do what they want to do at the end of the day, she said. They know the reper cussions. The campaign will cost the government $54 million, according to the Associated Press. Andrew Romero, a tobacco prevention specialist at the Alachua County Health Department, said Tobacco-Free Florida has produced similar campaigns. He said that in the past, the ads seemed to have had an impact on younger audiences. Theres quite a bit of evidence that campaigns similar to this have worked before, he said.Effects of graphic anti-smoking campaign still remain to be seenGrant People are going to do what they want to do at the end of the day.

THE FACILITY COST $250,000. MICHAEL SCOTT DAVIDSONAlligator Contributing WriterAbout 80 students, professors and alumni attended the grand opening of a new digital media lab in Weimer Hall on Monday night. AHA! The Innovation CoLab is a complement to the buildings basement 21st Century News Laboratory, which opened in 2010. Both are part of the Center for Media Innovation and Research in the College of Journalism and Communications. The central theme behind both of them is collaboration, teamwork, working together, said professor David Carlson, executive director for the center. The new facility cost about $250,000, which was funded by a start-up package of university funds from President Bernie Machen, Carlson said. The 2,500-square-foot facility, located in the Flanagan Wing of Weimer Hall, features a central working area and four breakout suites. The suites, which can seat 28 students collectively, are equipped with whiteboards, a high-tech conference table and two LCD screens each. Carlson said the new lab was created for all students but is geared toward adver tising and public relations majors. Participants in Saturdays Ad Dash event presented advertisement group projects they had created in the new lab. Jason Meneely, an assis tant professor of interior design and the hired consultant for the labs design, called the lab a creative-era class room intended to encourage student collaboration. Professors can schedule classes in the facility, but it was intentionally placed in a ing. It was about creating a space for collision of people and ideas, Meneely said.

However, states can pass laws that deal indirectly with immigration. ties that are not involved in the case but would like to express their support for one side, she said. This clearly signals that Gainesville believes we should treat people fairly and not single out a certain population, Hernandez-Truyol said. Lowe said he also doesnt like the fact that the law makes city police ofof criminal law. local immigrant communities, which undermines their relationship, Lowe said. UF law student William Hummel, 24, said he not only supports the human rights standpoint taken by the city, but he also agrees that cities should speak up for themselves. If states are going to force local mandates on cities, then cities should express how they feel about this, Hummel said. Contact Adrianna Paidas at apaidas@ alligator.org. TUESDAY, MARCH 20, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5Haley Stracher / Alligator StaffThe grand opening of AHA! The Innovation CoLab on Monday afternoon in Weimer Hall allowed faculty, staff and students to take a look at the remodeling of the College of Journalism and Communications. Journalism school celebrates tech lab opening JOLISA CANTYAlligator Contributing WriterA recent study shows the current generations college students are less interested in recycling and the environment than past students. According to a study published March 5 in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, fewer students are taking action to help the environment. Millennials, the generation born after 1982, showed less interest in their communities, social issues and protecting the environment than Generation X. Researchers pulled information from two data collections to evaluate high school seniors and college freshmen. Fifteen percent of Millennials said they made no personal effort to help the environment. Five percent of baby boomers, born between 1946 and 1961, said the same. Ashley Pennington, outreach coordinator for the relate with what she sees at UF. site, UF recycles about 6,000 tons of material a year, are involved with sustainability. Industrial engineering freshman Germain Gutierrez, 19, said laziness stops him from recycling. I think about it, but I dont recycle, he said.Study: Students do not recycle as much as before ASHLEY CRAIGAlligator Contributing WriterBus ridership in Gainesville continues to increase this year, but not due to rising gas prices. Regional Transit System saw an increase in ridership this year after partnering with Santa Fe College. Since the beginning of the Fall 2011 semester, Santa Fe students havent had to pay for every ride on a city bus due to a Chip Skinner, the marketing and communications super visor for RTS, said he is surprised by the increase. We have seen a 4 percent increase in growth for Fall 2011 two months, he said. Skinner said 80,000 more passengers rode the bus in February 2012 compared to February 2011. RTS worked with Santa Fe College to add three new bus routes. Three older routes continue to operate near the college, and all the buses stop more frequently at each location. Skinner said it took 10 years for the partnership to become a reality. Students consistently asked for increased bus service, but the process took longer than expected. Jackson Sasser, the president of Santa Fe College, said the new routes are an absolute bonus. More routes and increased bus ridership opens up parking spots on campus. In addition, the partnership promotes I hope to never build another parking lot, Sasser said. The parking index is so expensive, and it costs $10,000 per parking spot. We could build more facilities and hire more faculty. Cathy Vasquez, a Santa Fe sophomore, said she was glad the new routes were added. I dont have a car, so I rely heavily on the bus system, she said. With the old routes, I had to take two different buses to get to and from school. Now, the new routes take me straight to and from campus.Santa Fe students benefiting from increased bus service IMMIGRA TION,from page 1an administrative assistant in the cardiology department. banned from stepping foot on campus, UF cers started investigating the fraternity on ordered the UF chapter to disband soon after. members while looking into a similar case concerning the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, UPD spokesman Maj.

Ethic FailStudent Senator should not be promotedMuch to our surprise, Student Sen. Katie Waldman has been recommended as chair of the Allocations Committee in UF Student Government. Last week, Jason Tiemeier issued a written apology for throwing away issues of the Alligator during this semesters SG elections. woman he was with during the incident. Whether or not Waldman actually threw away the papers is unclear; her presence during the incident is not. As the current vice chairwoman of the Rules and Ethics Committee in the Student Senate, one would have hoped that Waldman might have advised Tiemeier that his actions were unethical. One also might have thought that someone on the Senate ethics committee would report unethical campaign activities during the election. This, of course, did not happen. But what can we expect from the same Student Government that, even after voting that eight out of 13 election codes were violated during the fall elections, did not hold anyone accountable for the screw-up? With the recommendation that Waldman head a committee, bad behavior is being rewarded, and the corruption continues to seep deeper into the fabric of SG. The Student Senate must not let this pass in todays meeting. Because of her actions, Waldman should not be given a higher position. Let us be clear that this is not personal. Anyone who has shown the lack of professionalism and responsibility that Waldman displayed during the last election should not be rewarded with more power. This appointment could very well lead to higher positions within SG, and we cannot, in good conscience, sit back and let this occur without expressing our displeasure. If SG wishes to be viewed as a credible organization, it should address this matter by doing the following: (1) The Student Senate should reject the recommendation that Waldman serve as chairwoman of the Allocations Committee. (2) Waldman should step down or be removed from SG after not reporting the incident. (3) Anyone else in SG who knew about the incident should explain why he or she did not come forward with the information. Remember: Members of SG were claiming that the story had been fabricated. Until these events occur, the scrutiny with which we watch SG over the coming months will only grow. We are not asking for much. We simply want to see some level of accountability. nitely not be the right course of action.Kony 2012 movement garners empty supportI often hear conversations between two people seemingly so consumed by their own lives that they fail to be concerned with anything beyond themselves. And, all too often, Im one of them. Few things are more pathetic than hearing a guy bitch about his girlfriends clinginess. Love even in excess is hardly a matter of grievance. Worse yet is hearing a woman complain about her unfact, could simply be too expectant. Above all, I dont recall ever reading (and certainly not complaints, as I have just done. Forgive me for the time being. All of our disappointments derive from the perspectives we take when judging our lives. And, despite our aptitude for socializing and multitasking, some less becoming qualities plague the Millennial generation. We believe were entitled outright to success and happiness. We expect life to be consistently pleasant. We think and we often fail to recognize how fortunate we are compared to others and their trials. The recent hashtagging of #Kony2012 has left me par ticularly bitter in this regard. The solidarity and support that this campaign gained against the Ugandan warlord is surely inspiring. I awoke on March 7 with a newfound appreciation for the effort and empathy that manifests through new media. Everyone and their pen pals were tweeting and sharing the video, and there was no shortage of teens changing poster in an attempt to make Joseph Kony famous (an elementary case of wordplay that belittles the end of the whole campaign). Shouldnt the goal be to make him infamous? Regardless, to what effect? How many of us actually went beyond the hashtag? I didnt. I watched the video, thought, F--k that guy, and forwarded it to some friends. My bank account went undebited, and, despite some conversation about the complexities of the issue, I effectively did nothing to stop Kony and his caterpillar mustache. I dont say this to boast (although, in this particular case, Im glad I didnt open my wallet for a trendy wristband and questionably concise acdisturbing indifference of the day. Ugandan citizens have since been shown the 30-minute video that went viral two weeks ago and have responded by hurling rocks and through shouts of disgust and physical anger, rivaled only by director Jason Russells recent public display of sexual catharsis. Why is it that a short, sensational video is able to garner so much empty support for a day or two, while the next week those same supporters can hardly be brought to oppose or even acknowledge the rest of the worlds crises? My worry is in regard to our apathy and paralysis until were confronted with an issue close to home (a cute kid pointing at the bad man, a sensationalized Banskyesque night of postering and a condescendingly simple plan of action). With the capability to rouse regime-toppling demontures for a campaign we know nearly nothing about. Our emotions are so entwined with a post-colonial mentality that we think the mere recognition of an issue is an effecdespite my awareness that children are being sold as sexslaves and soldiers from Houston to Kandahar.

THE STORE ANNOUNCED ITS CLOSING IN THE FALL. BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator WriterAnne Haisley stripped out a screw as she took apart one bookcase. She had 139 to go. Between dusty cobwebs and plastic green chairs, Phillip Haisley sat at a front counter littered with books. Anne Haisley, 72, and Phillip Haisley, 77, co-owners of Books Inc., hope to clear the store of its 50,000 books before they shut their 20-year-old business down for good. The couple announced this stores closing in the fall, but the ending has dragged out longer than they initially thought. Its not the bad economy or digital readers that killed their bookstore and cafe. The Haisleys said they are simply tired. The couple hasnt been on a vacation in four years. To help the process of closing up shop, they started to sell used books at 20 percent off, and, as of a month ago, the books are on sale for 30 percent off. So far, 70,000 books have been sold, Anne Haisley said. Since the business opened in 1993, the couple hosted international Scrabble tour 13 bookstores to sell books on the Internet, she said. We have had a great time doing this, he said. Phillip Haisley said he is ready to travel again. He has been to 107 countries in his life. Anne Haisley said she is ready to camp. Some bookcases are still full of books. Others are empty. Soon, even the shelves will be gone, too. The bookcases are selling for $200 each. Through the years, they said the experience has brought them good memories and made their marriage stronger. I have white hair, in case you didnt notice, Haisley joked to her husband. my mind you are blonde, honey.

The Hippodrome is taking people behind the scenes to see the process of creating, developing and rehearsprogram.

People will see how costumes are made, how the actors practice and how the set is made. Tammy Dygert has many roles in the preparation of a production. She solicits scripts from writers, creates new ways of helping people connect with the play and helps the play come to life. She said this time the program is focusing on the process of script-making and working on lines. The observership offers people a Why keep all these good things to ourselves? Dygert said. participants toured the Hippodrome. Sam Ulbing, who has been an usher for shows in the past, said he was together. It doesnt just happen, he said. And it will be a fascinating thing to see how they do it. Ulbing said he was excited to see the whole building, even the basement, which holds all of the parts for the 101-year-old manual elevator. He said if the elevator operator runs the elevator too low, a safety measure kicks in and shuts off power to it. He said it is not unheard of for the Hippodrome staff to have to manually crank No matter what, he said, the show must go on. A lot of people work to make a play, and I was very impressed by that, Ulbing said.

I was like, Whats a jury duty? Jacob told the Cape Cod Times in response to his summons to appear in Orleans District Court in Massachusetts on April 18. His grandmother told him it was a good excuse to miss a day of school. It turns out that someone had apparently typed 1982 for the Yarmouth third-graders birth year instead of 2002. The mistake was quickly corrected. Massachusetts Jury Commissioner Pamela Wood says a child gets called for jury duty once or twice a year.Nine-year-old boy summoned to jury dutyHe was 57 years old

As Virginia and Norfolk State keyed on Floridas 3-point shooting, the Gators found success inside. UF made 24 of 30 shots from inside the arc in a 71-45 victory Friday against the Cavaliers, followed by an 18-for-25 effort two days later to beat Norfolk State by 34 points. Along with Boyntons four free throws, the Gators also capitalized on fouls from aggressive drives by Er ving Walker, who made 8 of 9 from the char ity stripe, and Brad Beal, who also had four made free throws. The one great experience that weve gone through is shooting the ball like we did against Virginia, Donovan said. We still won by 20-plus points, and we were 4 for 23 from three. I think the same for the Norfolk State game. The result was the two largest margins of victory in this years NCAA Tournament and an opportunity to play No. 3 seed Marquette in Phoenix on Thursday at 10:17 p.m. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@alligator. org. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Writer In the Gators biggest win of the season, coach Amanda OLeary was bothered. against a ranked opponent as it defeated No. 15 Georgetown, 12-9, in Washington D.C. However, Florida turned the ball over a season-high 19 times in the process. We didnt play well getting the ball out of our defensive end the whole game, OLeary said after the game. I would love to say we made the adjustments and we Nearly two weeks later, the adjustments have been made, and the results have shown. The Gators have decreased their turnovers in every game since the win against the Hoyas, notching 16 against Temple, nine against Stony Brook and eight against William & Mary. No. 4 Florida (8-2) will try to continue its recent success protecting the ball against No. 8 Dartmouth at 6:30 tonight at Donald R. Dizney Stadium. since Georgetown. Junior attacker Gabi Wiegand, who had the ball over twice, said the Gators turnover issues stemmed from not only forced passes in transition but from a lack of patience on offense as well. The coaches talk a lot about patience, Wiegand said. We are so excited when we get the ball that were just ready to go and keep pounding it at the other team, and sometimes we shoot when we shouldnt be. Eight of UFs turnovers against Georgetown came on the defensive end. OLeary pointed to both inaccurate passing from the and attackers to cut back to the ball. After Florida had just eight turnovers in a 21-8 win against William & Mary, OLeary said the defense made great strides in its decision-making. Our defenders have taken a little more pride in possession of the ball, OLeary said. They are eliminating attackers and not just throwing the ball up for grabs. OLeary said the transition opportunities that can lead to turnovers are hard to simulate in practice because of Floridas roster size, so each player has to take it upon themselves in games to get in position to get the ball from defenders. She singled out Wiegand after the win against William & Mary for cutting back to the defensive end to receive passes. Weve been working for each other, someone gets double-teamed there is always an outlet to help them out, and weve just all gotten to be better ball-handlers. Against the Big Green, OLeary said the Gators will have to play cleanly in transition because Dartmouth has the athletic ability to take advantage of any mistake. They are very physical, OLeary said. They put a stick on a body. Through transition we are really going to have to take care of the ball because they have some very fast credit for what we have done, Stewart said. Its time to start talking about Florida what [we] have done and what [we] are going to do. If the Gators are to upend the Bears, the game plan starts with stopping Brittney Griner, the Big 12 Player of the Year. Griner leads Baylor with 23.1 points, 9.2 rebounds and a nation-leading 5.1 blocks per game this season. She also ranks third nationally with 1.31 goal percentage. Griner is the best player Florida will face this season, ability to go toe-to-toe with the Bears 6-foot-8 junior center. She is very mobile for a big player, Stewart said. But, for me, I have played in the [Southeastern Conference], and Ive played overseas against Olympians who are just as big and just as skilled as her. Stewart has spent the last three summers playing basketball in Europe in hopes of earning a spot on the Great Britain National Team for this years Olympics. During her time overseas, Stewart said she went up against several big players from different countries, including a 7-footer. Well, I played against the Russians. Theyre kind of big. They play in and out from the start, so its kind of just like a Brittney Griner, Stewart said. The Germans play pretty big and the Lithuanians. So, Ive had experience that maybe a lot of USA players havent had. While UF will hone in on Griner much like it did against Ohio States Samantha Prahalis on Sunday, Baylor is a better all-around squad. Nationally, the Bears rank second with a 1.35 assist-toturnover ratio, third in scoring with 78.9 points per game and per contest. The Gators are 1-7 in games in which they score 60 points or fewer. (Baylor) coach (Kim) Mulkey makes it very simple, coach Amanda Butler said. She puts her players in position for them to succeed. And they play their roles out very well within the structure [Mulkey] provides them. The last time the Gators faced the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, UConn defeated UF for a 28-point victory in 2009. In order to avoid a similar blowout defeat, Butler says Florida will take whatever extra fuel it can get. We rarely have gone into matchups against the best teams without people writing in the headlines about our opponents, Butler said. Typically we are reading the headlines about our competitors and what our chances are. I think that it is good mental preparation for that for [tonights] game. 14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, MARCH 20, 2012Brett Le Blanc / Alligator StaffThe Gators have cut down on turnovers the last two weeks after a season-high 19 against Georgetown on March 7.
