The property Shands plans to use for the new center was The property holds a vacant building of a former Residence Inn at 4001 SW 13th St. near Williston Road, which will be transformed into a rehab center for people overcoming drug abuse, alcohol abuse and eating disor ders. The rehab center will also add about 20 employees. Participants in the program will now be able to live at the facility, but living there will not be mandatory. They will be allowed to leave the grounds any time they want. Patient care at the center will not be covered by insurance companies. Harvey Budd, the chairman of the planning commission, said he is happy the center will be expanded. I think it is well-needed for the community and town, he said. Mary Anderson, a Gainesville resident, said the new center will help the community by giving residents easy access to abuse treatment. The new location is not far from the Meridian Behavioral Healthcare Inc. and Shands at It has all things going for it for those persons who are ready to change, Anderson said. Steven Lachnicht, director at of Growth Management, said he doesnt think the new center will hurt the community in any way. I dont see an external differ ence, he said. There will probably be even there was from the hotel, Lachnicht said. Lachnicht, who lives near the new location for the center, said community members should be concerned about people who dont get the medical care they need rather than people who will be at this facility getting help. ity to help people suffering from drug and alcohol problems is personal, she said. It was tragic, she said. She worked as a lab technician in a hospital, drawing blood from substance abusers. Some of her patients died, she said. She said the center will give people an opportunity to get better. It leaves the door open to someone who is ready to say yes to life, Anderson said. I bet there is not a single family in the community that hasnt had one member of their family affected by drug abuse. 4, ALLIGATOR Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffCraig Brashier, planning project manager for Causseaux, Hewett, & Walpole, Inc., explains to the Alachua County planning committee details about the future rehab facility located at 4001 SW 13th St. LOCALCounty planning commission moves forward with plans for rehab center SHELBY WEBBAlligator WriterNeighbors in a gated Sanford community were the only ones who actually heard the gunshot. sound bite of Trayvon Martins last seconds.

POLICE SAY HE USED THE CARD TO BUY A COMPUTER, GAS AND A CAR BATTERY. SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterA Gainesville man was ar rested Tuesday afternoon and charged with using a credit card he found in a parking lot. Mark Anthony J. Radford, 22, found a credit card on March 16 belonging to Arleen M. Mazzella, according to Gainesville Police. Radford then charged more than $640 to the card from March 16 to 17, police said. He was charged with grand theft and uttering a forged instrument, which is when a per son signs another persons name unlawfully. He declined to comment when contacted by the Alligator. At about 10 p.m. on March 16, Radford used the card at a Sunrise Food Mart for about $30 worth of gas. He then used the card to buy a computer from a Walmart Super center for about $315, according to an arrest report. At about noon the next day, he bought a car battery for about $150 at CARQUEST Auto Parts. He then went to Midas for a brake repair job for about $150. Radford signed Mazzellas name on all four purchases, police said. Mazzella said it should not have been that easy for Radford to use her credit card without showing identification. There isnt any monitoring, she said. They should say, Let me see your ID with the card.

The Southeastern Regional Convergence of Occupations, hosted by Occupy Gainesville, will offer workshops and group talks on social issues during its three-day run starting Friday. Coinciding near the sixmonth anniversary of the Occupy Gainesville movement, the event aims to build a network of activists from the Caribbean to the Southeastern U.S., according to the event website. The event, which will be held outside Brooker, is free and open to the public. Registration is available online. The conference comes soon after scores of Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested when Zuccotti Park was cleared out this weekend. Josh Goldsmith, a 19-yearold UF political science freshman, said the meeting will not help solve the problems the If they think holding a mass conference of people complaining how everything is someall the more power to them, he said.

Public PaddlingsCorporal punishment allowed in FloridaIf you have children who attend public school in Florida, you might want to check them for bruises. According to a recent report by NPR, Florida is one dents. The Florida Department of Education estimates that about 3,661 students were subjected to corporal punishment in the state of Florida in the 2009-2010 school year. about .76 percent of all disciplinary actions taken in the state during that school year. Still, one has to wonder why corporal punishment even exists at all. Most of the counties with high numbers (more than 150 incidents of paddling) during the 2009-2010 school year were in rural North Florida, near the Alabama and Georgia bor ders. However, there were counties in South Florida, such as Highlands, Hendry and Hardee, which reported relatively high levels of corporate punishment. One public school in Alachua County reported an incident of a student being paddled during this same school year. Whether parents agree with this form of punishment, under Florida law, school districts do not need parental consent. In Levy County, which had more than 100 incidents of corporal punishment in the 2009-2010 school year, parent Tenika Jones told NPR that her childs elementary school sent home a letter asking permission to paddle students. Jones said she refused to sign the waiver, but her 5-yearold son, Gierrea Bostick, was still paddled after he slapped another boy on a school bus. According to Jones, the paddling left welts on Gierreas bottom. Jones hopes to sue the Levy County School District even though the law is against her. However, attorneys can argue that excessive force was used against her son. Clinical child psychologist Deborah Sendek told NPR that paddling does nothing to deter students from engaging in bad behavior. But the debate continues. While some argue that punishment through negative reinforcement teaches kids discipline, others argue that it can lead to more violent behavior. For instance, a 2006 study by the American Psychological Association found, adolescents who were more likely reported that their parents engaged in corporal punishment as a disciplining method. Again, this is just one study, but before we allow public schools to engage in this sort of disciplinary action, should we not be sure of its possible negative effects? And, more importantly, if parents disagree with these disciplinary methods, should they not be allowed to opt their kids out of such punishment?UWireUS should push Israel away from warAs the debate over Irans nuclear program continues to intensify, one of two bad outcomes seems increasingly likely a nuclear-armed Iran and a war with Iran that may or may not involve the U.S. But is there a way to avoid both? Iran continues to claim its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, including nuclear power and medical research. But during the last decade it has repeatedly refused to give International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors full access to all its nuclear sites. Although IAEA inspectors have not seen all of Irans Iran has a nuclear weapons program. Nevertheless, at times, the inspectors have been suspicious of some of Irans nuclear activities. Both the U.S. and Israel, as well as the European Union and several countries in the Persian Gulf, have concerns about the Iranian nuclear program, but there is no consensus on how to deal with the issue. The U.S. and Israel in particular have been at odds over how exactly to approach the problem. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently visited the U.S. and met with President Obama to discuss the ongoing problems surrounding the Iranian nuclear program. Netanyahu seems to be beating the drum of war while Obama has been more cautious and willing to let sanctions run their course. Obama did clarify his stance recently, stating that he does not have a policy of simply containing a nuclear armed Iran once it has a nuclear weapon. His stated policy is he is committed to the prevention of an Iranian nuclear weapon. If Israel does decide to unilaterally attack Iran, several questions remain unanswered. Will the U.S. involve itself in another war? Does Israel have the military capability to destroy Irans nuclear program? Answers to these questions are critical in Israels decision on whether or not to unilaterally attack Iran. President Obamas more cautious approach and his reliance on sanctions do seem to take their toll on Iran. Most notably, Irans currency, the rial, has lost over half its value since September, according to the Economic Times. In a recent interview on CNN, Sen. Diane Feinstein, the chairwoman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said Iran is one to two years away from being able to create a nuclear weapon. If this intelligence is correct, it may strengthen Obamas position of allowing sanctions to continue to impact Iran before rushing to military action. Last week brought an agreement to resume negotiations between Iran and the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council along with Germany. There have been no details released about these negotiations, but if all parties are indeed willing to return to the negotiating table, this may be the best way to avoid a military confrontation. For the time being, these new negotiations seem to be President Obamas best option. Preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon without taking military action against Iran would certainly be the best case scenario. But Israel is still a wild card. Prime Minister Netanyahu does not appear to be as patient as President Obama. cials need to continue advising Israel against a unilateral ing and able to launch a military strike. But this will be easier said than done. Jacob Keplar is a columnist for the University Daily Kansan at the University of Kansas. Jacob KeplarUWire

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012 After sending a few emails and Facebook messages, Mesa snagged an interview with Adrian Villaverde, who DJs at Forum every Saturday night and opened for Alesso, a globally recognized DJ, in early February. laverde, Mesa has interviewed DJs that hail from Tallahassee, Orlando, Atlanta, Minneapolis and Gainesville. She has a variety of experience spanning from daytime student to nighttime DJ and producers with record deals. Everybody just seemed eager about the project and enthusiastic about it, so thats how I started. When it comes to her persona as The Girl Downtown, Mesa said she drew her inspiration from Gossip Girl and students at NYU. Whenever Ive visited New York, Im always impressed with the students from NYU because they live this very glamorous lifestyle, always clubhopping, but they were documenting the nightclub owners, Mesa said. This girl-on-the-go feel, along with a DIY-style artistry, is why she records interviews and takes pictures and video with her iPhone, Mesa said. She also wanted to keep The Girl Downtown separate from The DJ Diaries. She doesnt want to limit herself to just electronic music. Gainesville is a huge mecca for rock and hip-hop, and she said she wants to be able to branch out in the future. Although The DJ Diaries is still new, Mesa said she has also been approached by promoters and people responsible for putting shows together. Id love to document their stories as well because theyre as much a part of the culture and the scene as the DJs and producers, Mesa said. Look out for Mesas upcoming features on artists such as Figure, Crespo and Lady Cherelle that are soon to be posted on The DJ Diaries. To me, its an art form just like any other musician, and I really want to capture that, Mesa said. DJ, from page 9Gossip Girl of music KENDRICK BROWNAvenue WriterIt was only a year ago that Tyler the Creators self-directed video for Yonkers spread like members of his crew, Odd Future, into instant After several solo projects, a Video Music Award and collaborations with musics biggest stars, the group has brought its talents together to release The OF Tape Vol. 2. The beginning of the album, a minute-and-ahalf-long monologue, properly sets the stage for humor and is a necessary disclaimer for the dark imagery in the albums lyrics. It also says that Odd Future doesnt take itself too seriously, so the listener probably shouldnt, either. Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis and Tyler, the Creator deliver the same type of twisted comedy that has established them as the shock entertainers of Odd Future, fully equipped with lines about giving your girlfriend STDs and channeling ones inner Kimbo Slice in a brawl. The video takes things a step further, featur ing scenes of Hodgy donned in a Halo-like costume receiving a lap dance while Tyler appears as a cocaine-abusing centaur complaining about the lack of Kanye West music being played. The most noticeable difference between the doubt inspired by singers Frank Ocean and Syd Tha Kyd and their increased relevance in the public eye. In White, Ocean employs the soulful crooning, lush harmonies and vivid imagery that have catapulted him to being the most critically acclaimed artist in Odd Future. Syd and producer Matt Martians form as The Internet to deliver the albums sole dance track, Ya Know. The songs drum pattern and synthesizers are stylistically reminiscent of 1990s New Jack Swing and serves as the backdrop for a story about a romantic encounter sparked at a club. Team spirit lies at the center of this albums ideology and the outro, Oldie, is a 10-minute-long posse cut featuring the majority of the members giving their most consistent lyrical performances of the album. With its jazz horn hits and hip-hop drums, Oldie reveals its hidden gem at around the 8-minute mark: Earl Sweatshirt. Leaving rumors about his Samoan-based disappearance in the air, the mystery man delivers a show-stealing verse, summing up the albums theme and valiare we talented, were rad as f--k.Odd Future releases latest album Not only are we talented, were rad as f***.Tyler the Creator music artist music

THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 RACHEL GODFREYAvenue WriterSince 2006, UFs Shakespeare in the Park has been performing the playwrights productions outside on the Plaza of the Americas. Every production is free of charge and open to the public. This year, the theater group tackled A Midsummer Nights Dream, a comedy of interlocking plots surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens to the Queen of the Amazons. The play premiered last Thursday night and ran through Saturday with a matinee per formance on Sunday afternoon. Mischief and treachery ensued this year beside the backdrop of a unique premise. Directors Max Wallace and Ashlyn Rothenberg decided on a nautical theme for the perfor mance. We wanted to do something totally new this year, said Brad Johnson, creative director of the show. The theme was incorporated largely through the set and elaborate costumes. Near ly every member of the group serves a dual role as both an actor and a crewmember. Everything has been made or put together by the people in the organization, said Shawn Daniels, public relations representative of the group. He also played Bottom.

BRIT POP DUO BEGAN U.S. TOUR NATALIA SIEUKARANAvenue WriterBritish musical pop duo The Ting Tings return four years after the release of their debut album We Started Nothing with a self-produced, power-pop sophomore album called Sounds from Nowheresville, reminding us how the group revolutionized the way America hears pop music now. sic as we know it since the days of British invasions, and pop is no doubt included in that. In the 80s, British acts showed us the wonders and versatility of synthpop, which movements, like New Romanticism. Frankly, this British pop invasion hasnt stopped, and it wont be stopping anytime soon. The Ting Tings are here to direct the indie synth in pop music years from now. Their anthems from the iconic We Started Nothing album showcased trademark elements of punklike statements (found in the U.S. sleeper hit Thats Not My Name) and chaotic, yet catchy, synth beats we came to love in Great DJ. In other words, they made a pretty awesome pop album. Now, Katie White and Jules De Martino return to show us they havent become one-hit wonders like many pop artists on the scene, and they have brought along more sounds to play with. White and De Martino come from two vastly different worlds. White was a little girl from a farm in a small town called Lowton, and she went to a school with a strong performing arts program. Her dreams of performing came true when her grandfather won the lottery and used a portion of his winnings to start a music management company. The company signed on Whites punk trio girl group, Technical Knock Out. De Martino, who was born in East London, was already an accomplished drummer in two bands before Whites father, David White, brought him in to write songs for the girl group. From this, The Ting Tings were born. The band, which formed by luck, has differences from other bands. These differences are apparent in their sound, such as random beats thrown around, one note strummed at a time and Whites sweet voice chaotic differences that just happen to work. De Martino told Spin Magazine in December that this new album was recorded during an eight-month period in Paris, Berlin and Merci, Spain, but the songs were written in multiple places on the road dur ing tours, the backs of cabs, etc. hence the name, Sounds from Nowheresville. is a more stripped-down version of their synth-y sound, and it uses more actual instrumentation. The video was released in October and has garnered a million hits on YouTube so far. The song starts off with White strumming guitar riffs that are reminiscent of old-school punk like the Sex Pistols while sassily singing statement-like lyrics such as, My friends are making me higher and higher. Theyre killing me with Seeming to have taken advantage of their traveling, the second single, Silence, sounds like an homage to their artsy beginnings and is reminiscent of German s experimental rock. Guns shoot in the background, and White drones out somber lyrics in a monotone voice: Hold, hold your talk now. And let them all listen to your silence. Its great. Hands is the song that takes aspects of what we love from 80s pop. Think of the fast, sugary, bubblegum beats weve come to love. During the song, White asks the age-old question, Whats a girl to do with two hands? Hit Me Down Sonny is largely a world Lil Wayne tried to venture into a few years ago. The lyrics are bling percussion beats. In the Spin interview, De Martino says that record stores are becoming obsolete, so while touring, they listened to music the way a majority of music listeners listen to it now: mp3s. So instead of listening to a record, they would compile playlists, which then led to the idea to create an album that was a playlist. The Ting Tings do pretty much that. They put us on a ride of genres and time periods by putting together the best aspects of each, all while adding their signature elements to it. The end result is an album that shows us they have the chops and skills to play this little game called pop music, and they play it pretty damn well in just 10 tracks. Sounds from Nowheresville is already out, and The Ting Tings started their U.S. tour. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012Photo courtesy of The Ting TingsKatie White and Jules De Martino represent Britains indie synthpop sound.

THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Live Tweets from the NCAA TournamentBeat writer John Boothe (@JJBoothe) and sports editor Matt Watts (@WattMatts) will be in Phoenix tonight bringing you live tweets from UFs Sweet 16 showdown with Marquette. Tebow on the moveThe Denver Broncos traded Tim Tebow to the New York Jets on Wednesday night, ending a two-day saga in which the polarizing former Gator was the focal point of a national media spotlight.AP PhotoFlorida center Patric Young towels off during a practice last week in Omaha, Neb. Young and Marquette forward Jae Crowder have gone back and forth in the media this week ahead of their Sweet 16 meeting tonight in Phoenix. JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer Two days before they were due to share the same court, Floridas players were already feeling the extra dose of physicality Marquette usually has in store for its opponents. While the No. 3 seed Golden Eagles have built a reputation this season for being a tough, physical team that claws for rebounds and thrives off forcing turnovers, the seventhseeded Gators adjusted their practices accordingly this week in Phoenix to simulate Mar quettes defensive maelstrom. These last two practices weve had have probably been our most physical practices weve had, freshman Brad Beal said. Weve been fouling each other and slapping at the ball. Were prepared for them. We know theyre going to try to slap at us when we get a rebound. Heading into Floridas Sweet 16 matchup with Marquette tonight at 10:17 in U.S. Air ways Center, the Gators are expecting to be challenged on a plane akin to psychological warfare, according to center Patric Young. The 6-foot-9 Young will be matching up at times with 6-foot-6 Marquette forward Jae Crowder, who averages 17.6 points in 33 minutes per game and is a part of a Golden Eagles starting frontcourt that sees little time on the bench. After suffering a season-ending ACL injury to center Chris Otule and with forward Davante Gardner still working his way back into Marquettes lineup from a Jan. 28 knee sprain, the Golden Eagles have relied primarily on a seven-man rotation. Theyre trying to break our will, Young said. Theyre trying to catch us in a moment versity and we cant show any weakness, even if we get hit and fouls arent called. If you get through it. Though Young predicts pushing through no-call fouls by Marquette and moving on from frustrating plays will be key in Florida not getting rattled by the Golden Eagles, he said he hasnt taken any special measures to prepare for the game. Its just how I play anyways, he said. Tuesday on Marquettes offenses chances of scoring against Floridas defense, which alinto the NCAA Tournament to shoot 45 per cent or better. However, since the tournament has started, the Gators have appeared to be a different team. We held teams at less than 50 points the credibility behind that comment comes from, Young said. After beating 10th-seeded Virginia 71-45 in the second round and No. 15 seed Norfolk State 84-50 on Sunday, Florida became the only Sweet 16 team to limit both of its opponents to fewer than 50 points. Were just a real humble team, Young said. People tend to put us under the radar but that doesnt matter. The only thing that matters is when its time to set up on the court. We just have to go play basketball. Contact John Boothe at jboothe@alligator.org.Florida braces for physical gameBASEBALL BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer Floridas trip last year to Omaha, Neb., for the College World Series continues to weigh on Preston Tuckers mind for all the wrong reasons. three games the Gators won at TD Ameritrade Park or the championship-caliber season that preceded their trip to college baseballs biggest stage. Theres one bitter memory that stands out. It obviously left a sour taste in our mouth, Tucker said. A lot of the guys still remember the game like it was yesterday. I know I do. At the hands of Southeastern Conference rival South Carolina, Florida watched a 53-17 season dissipate into disappointnational championship, the Gators were stonewalled by selfinnings after failing to push a run across during a bases-loaded, no-outs situation in the bottom of the ninth. Beginning tonight at 7:30, the No. 1 at the No. 8 Gamecocks (16-5, 0-3 SEC) since a quick turnaround for Florida, as the team was on the bus to Columbia, S.C., a little more than 12 hours after defeating Samford 5-3 on Tuesday night in Gainesville. We have no choice (but to be prepared), UF coach Kevin OSullivan said after the game. Theyre young. Theyll get some rest [Tuesday] and jump on the bus [Wednesday] and practice [Wednesday] night and see what happens this weekend. The Gators road trip brings a number of factors into play. that now features four freshman starters after losing senior cenBut youth is something familiar for South Carolina as well. Five freshman have charted at least 10 starts for the Gamecocks this season, and South Carolina is in the bottom half of the SEC in nearly every offensive category, including last in runs scored (93). Whether were at home or away, weve still got to play good, OSullivan said. I know theyre freshmen, but they came here to play and were going to throw them right back out there.Loss to eventual champs South Carolina still fresh ahead of rematchSEE BASEBALL, PA GE 18Tucker We held teams at less than 50 Patric YoungYoung, Crowder exchange barbs More content available onlineTo read stories on the Gators softball and gymnastics teams, please visit alligatorSports.org.

The Gamecocks offer a blueprint of how not to handle an SEC road trip with a young lineup. Last weekend, South Carolina opened SEC play at Kentucky and was promptly swept by the currently undefeated Wildcats after putting up just three runs in each of the three games. That was also South Caroseason. Florida conditioned itself on the road earlier this season with a three-game series at No. 12 Miami. But Columbia, where 9,000 fans will pack Carolina Stadium all three days, is an entirely different monster. Junior catcher Mike Zunino last played there when he was a freshman. Its loud, so we just have to be able to communicate and grind out every at-bat, he said. If our [bullpen] keeps throwing strikes and doing their job, all we have to do is keep competing. Etc.: Sophomore right-hander Jonathon Crawford will once again get the third weekend start for Florida against South Carolina. OSullivan expects sophomore Karsten Whitson to be back soon. Were looking at either maybe getting a start against Florida State on Tuesday for a couple innings or starting him against Ole Miss, he said. Obviously, hell be on a pitch count, but hes ready.UFs Whitson out again this weekend18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012 BASEBALL, from page 17FOOTBALL TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer To say 2011 was a disappointment for Quinton Dunbar would be an understatement. After appearing in just two games as a true freshman in 2010, the 6-foot-1, 183-pound receiver drew praise from coaches and teammates alike last spring and into fall camp. It seemed he was poised for a breakout year one the Gators needed from a receiver. However, all that buildup never translated to games, as Dunbar caught just 14 passes for 216 yards and a pair of scores in 12 games. His the second-to-last game of the season against Furman on Nov. 19. I mean, I cant even answer that, Dunbar said last week when asked why the preseason hype didnt dont know what happened. But with one week of spring practice done, new offensive coordinator Brent Pease said he has been particularly impressed with Dunbar, more so than any other receiver. While Andre Debose led the team last season in receiving touchdowns (four), receiving yards (432) and yards per catch (27), Pease said he hasnt seen the redshirt junior emerge just yet as the playmaker Floridas offense needs. Instead, Pease praised Dunbars play early this spring. Quintons really done it well in four days really done well, Pease said Wednesday. (He has made) drastic improvements every day. Most notably, Pease complimented improvements in Dunbars catching ability high praise considering Pease said the receiving corps as a whole needs more work on fundamentals such as stance, catching, blocking and releasing on routes. Dunbar said he is focusing on all of those things this offseason in order to try to take his game to the next level. So far, it seems to be paying off, as Pease has seen Dunbar make several big plays early in practice and threat come fall. Practice is built to go fast and be challenging so that games are easier, Pease said. Hes starting to play the game faster. Hes not thinking so much. When kids are thinking, they play slow, because they dont know everything, they dont Obviously were working through that, but Ive seen the pace of how he plays the game every day get faster and faster and faster. Pease working more with receivers: Given his recent background as a wide receivers coach, Pease said he tends to be pickier when it comes to coaching receivers, and has been hands on with the Gators group of pass-catchers this spring.

THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 Countless hours of statistical analysis provide a realistic account of Floridas defensive performance this season with and without its best defender, Will Yeguete. Despite losing the lockdown forward, the Gators are playing their best defense of the year in the NCAA Tournament.GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WriterFloridas defense has been a roller coaster this season, all because of an injury to the teams sixth man. When the Gators lost Will Yeguete to a broken foot on Feb. 21, they lost without question their best defensive player. away the worst Florida has played this season. But, when the NCAA Tournament started, everything changed. UF got back on track, shutting down Virginia and Norfolk State to earn a date with Marquette tonight in the Sweet 16. crunching, I have been able to quantify the value of Yeguetes 21.9 minutes per game, pinpoint how far Florida slipped when he was injured, and identify what the Gators have done to round into top form at the perfect time. When it comes to measuring an individual players defensive performance, traditional boxscore data is wholly inadequate. Scorekeepers chart only blocks, steals and defensive rebounds for each player. Enter Project Defensive Scoresheet, proposed by Dean Oliver in his 2003 book Basketball on Paper. Instead of noting only steals and blocks, this scoring system requires that credit be issued for every forced miss, forced turnover or defensive rebound. It also assigns blame for every allowed basket or free throw, providing a complete picture of a players defensive contribution. Credit for wide-open misses and unforced turnovers is spread across the entire team, as is blame for transition baskets, late-game intentional fouls and broken plays. If a certain defender is clearly responsible for missing a rotation that results in a wide-open shot, he gets the blame for the make. But, more often than not, I assign open shots to Team and let Billy Donovan decide who is at fault. Formulas in Olivers book boil those totals down into stops each players stop percentage, defensive engagement percentage and overall defensive rating, which is the measure of how many points a players team is expected to give up with that player on the court for 100 possessions. The result is a chart like the one shown below, from Floridas 84-50 win over Norfolk State. After going through that process for each of UFs Southeastthose against Ohio State, Syracuse, Arizona, Texas A&M, Florihappened before Yeguete was lost for the season, including the Feb. 21 game against Auburn when he broke his foot. Yeguete was Floridas best defender, leading the team with a 98.2 defensive rating despite boasting the highest defensive engagement percentage (29.3). Because defensive ratings are calculated in relation to the willingness to take charges and excellent rebounding ability, leading the team with 6.5 defensive rebounds per 40 minutes and a turnover forced on 6.8 percent of his possessions. Brad Beal checked in right behind him with a 98.3 rating thanks to strong rebounding and a team-best 30.1 opponent forcing a turnover. Young and Murphy were heavily involved inside and held their own, but didnt force enough turnovers or grab enough Walker forced turnovers with his quickness, often jumping in to intercept passes as teams tried to break the press. But, at 5-foot-8, opponents had an easy time hitting 46.3 percent of their shots right over him. Boynton and Scottie Wilbekin, considered the teams premier perimeter defenders, did poorly in the study because of how often they got caught up in screening action and yielded open jumpers. Although they were rarely beaten off the dribble, the single shortcoming was enough to doom their defensive ratings because each sported such a low engagement rate. Cody Larson struggled in limited playing time. The defensive numbers were average, which was good enough given Floridas offense. But, once Yeguete left the lineup, the defense took a major slide. UFs defensive rating in the tests. The individual ratings naturally followed suit. Murphy and Prather struggled moving into new roles, and UFs press became mostly ineffective. Field goal percentages rose and turnover percentages fell almost across the board. New rotations meant breakdowns in both transition and half-court defense, leading to a number of open, unblameable shots that crushed Floridas overall rating. One explanation is the obvious jump in competition, as UF rough patch. Still, Floridas defensive efforts in that span were among the worst any team had played against those opponents, according to KenPom.com. UFs performances against Vanderbilt and Georgia were the third-worst any unit has played against those teams this season. The competition weakened in the tournaments opening weekend, but that alone doesnt account for UFs revival. fensive game any team has played against Virginia this year, and followed that with the third-best defensive game any team has played against Norfolk State. Wilbekin, in particular, raised his play, allowing opponents of the possessions he was involved in. and defensive rebounding numbers skyrocketed. Floridas press was back near its normal form, sparking major runs as UF notched decisive wins in each game. The pressure did not actively force turnovers as much as it made Virginia and Norfolk State uncomfortable. The teams played at UFs tempo and occasionally took poor shots while combining against Virginias Mike Scott and Norfolks Kyle OQuinn, usually forcing contested jump shots. The Gators often doubled both Scott and OQuinn. UF also frequently doubled the ball on pick-and-pop action, unafraid to leave inconsistent shooters open for long jump shots. Florida played with a newfound focus, intensity and commitment to the gameplan, even without its best defender. Reading too much into a two-game sample can be dangerous, but the results at least give the Gators hope that the defense will be able to bring them through another weekend and into the Final Four.

The rehab center will also add about 20 employees. Participants in the program will now be able to live at the facility, but living there will not be mandatory. They will be allowed to leave the grounds any time they want. Patient care at the center will not be covered by insurance companies. Harvey Budd, the chairman of the planning commission, said he is happy the center will be expanded. I think it is well-needed for the community and town, he said. Mary Anderson, a Gainesville resident, said the new center will help the community by giving residents easy access to abuse treatment. The new location is not far from the Meridian Behavioral Healthcare Inc. and Shands at It has all things going for it for those persons who are ready to change, Anderson said.

Lachnicht, who lives near the new location for the center, said community members should be concerned about people who dont get the medical care they need rather than people who will be at this facility getting help. ity to help people suffering from drug and alcohol problems is personal, she said. It was tragic, she said. She worked as a lab technician in a hospital, drawing blood from substance abusers. Some of her patients died, she said. She said the center will give people an opportunity to get better. It leaves the door open to someone who is ready to say yes to life, Anderson said.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator WriterA Gainesville man was ar rested Tuesday afternoon and charged with using a credit card he found in a parking lot. Mark Anthony J. Radford, 22, found a credit card on March 16 belonging to Arleen M. Mazzella, according to Gainesville Police. Radford then charged more than $640 to the card from March 16 to 17, police said. He was charged with grand theft and uttering a forged instrument, which is when a per son signs another persons name unlawfully. He declined to comment when contacted by the Alligator. At about 10 p.m. on March 16, Radford used the card at a Sunrise Food Mart for about $30 worth of gas. He then used the card to buy a computer from a Walmart Super center for about $315, according to an arrest report. At about noon the next day, he bought a car battery for about $150 at CARQUEST Auto Parts. He then went to Midas for a brake repair job for about $150. Radford signed Mazzellas name on all four purchases, police said. Mazzella said it should not have been that easy for Radford to use her credit card without showing identification.

The Southeastern Regional Convergence of Occupations, hosted by Occupy Gainesville, will offer workshops and group talks on social issues during its three-day run starting Friday. Coinciding near the sixmonth anniversary of the Occupy Gainesville movement, the event aims to build a network of activists from the Caribbean to the Southeastern U.S., according to the event website. The event, which will be held outside Brooker, is free and open to the public. Registration is available online. The conference comes soon after scores of Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested when Zuccotti Park was cleared out this weekend. Josh Goldsmith, a 19-yearold UF political science freshman, said the meeting will not help solve the problems the If they think holding a mass conference of people complaining how everything is someall the more power to them, he said.

Public PaddlingsCorporal punishment allowed in FloridaIf you have children who attend public school in Florida, you might want to check them for bruises. According to a recent report by NPR, Florida is one dents. The Florida Department of Education estimates that about 3,661 students were subjected to corporal punishment in the state of Florida in the 2009-2010 school year. about .76 percent of all disciplinary actions taken in the state during that school year. Still, one has to wonder why corporal punishment even exists at all. Most of the counties with high numbers (more than 150 incidents of paddling) during the 2009-2010 school year were in rural North Florida, near the Alabama and Georgia bor ders. However, there were counties in South Florida, such as Highlands, Hendry and Hardee, which reported relatively high levels of corporate punishment. One public school in Alachua County reported an incident of a student being paddled during this same school year. Whether parents agree with this form of punishment, under Florida law, school districts do not need parental consent. In Levy County, which had more than 100 incidents of corporal punishment in the 2009-2010 school year, parent Tenika Jones told NPR that her childs elementary school sent home a letter asking permission to paddle students. Jones said she refused to sign the waiver, but her 5-yearold son, Gierrea Bostick, was still paddled after he slapped another boy on a school bus. According to Jones, the paddling left welts on Gierreas bottom. Jones hopes to sue the Levy County School District even though the law is against her. However, attorneys can argue that excessive force was used against her son. Clinical child psychologist Deborah Sendek told NPR that paddling does nothing to deter students from engaging in bad behavior. But the debate continues. While some argue that punishment through negative reinforcement teaches kids discipline, others argue that it can lead to more violent behavior. For instance, a 2006 study by the American Psychological Association found, adolescents who were more likely reported that their parents engaged in corporal punishment as a disciplining method. Again, this is just one study, but before we allow public schools to engage in this sort of disciplinary action, should we not be sure of its possible negative effects? And, more importantly, if parents disagree with these disciplinary methods, should they not be allowed to opt their kids out of such punishment?UWireUS should push Israel away from warAs the debate over Irans nuclear program continues to intensify, one of two bad outcomes seems increasingly likely a nuclear-armed Iran and a war with Iran that may or may not involve the U.S. But is there a way to avoid both? Iran continues to claim its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, including nuclear power and medical research. But during the last decade it has repeatedly refused to give International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors full access to all its nuclear sites. Although IAEA inspectors have not seen all of Irans Iran has a nuclear weapons program. Nevertheless, at times, the inspectors have been suspicious of some of Irans nuclear activities. Both the U.S. and Israel, as well as the European Union and several countries in the Persian Gulf, have concerns about the Iranian nuclear program, but there is no consensus on how to deal with the issue. The U.S. and Israel in particular have been at odds over how exactly to approach the problem. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently visited the U.S. and met with President Obama to discuss the ongoing problems surrounding the Iranian nuclear program. Netanyahu seems to be beating the drum of war while Obama has been more cautious and willing to let sanctions run their course. Obama did clarify his stance recently, stating that he does not have a policy of simply containing a nuclear armed Iran once it has a nuclear weapon. His stated policy is he is committed to the prevention of an Iranian nuclear weapon. If Israel does decide to unilaterally attack Iran, several questions remain unanswered. Will the U.S. involve itself in another war? Does Israel have the military capability to destroy Irans nuclear program? Answers to these questions are critical in Israels decision on whether or not to unilaterally attack Iran. President Obamas more cautious approach and his reliance on sanctions do seem to take their toll on Iran. Most notably, Irans currency, the rial, has lost over half its value since September, according to the Economic Times. In a recent interview on CNN, Sen. Diane Feinstein, the chairwoman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said Iran is one to two years away from being able to create a nuclear weapon. If this intelligence is correct, it may strengthen Obamas position of allowing sanctions to continue to impact Iran before rushing to military action. Last week brought an agreement to resume negotiations between Iran and the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council along with Germany. There have been no details released about these negotiations, but if all parties are indeed willing to return to the negotiating table, this may be the best way to avoid a military confrontation. For the time being, these new negotiations seem to be President Obamas best option. Preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon without taking military action against Iran would certainly be the best case scenario. But Israel is still a wild card. Prime Minister Netanyahu does not appear to be as patient as President Obama. cials need to continue advising Israel against a unilateral ing and able to launch a military strike.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012 After sending a few emails and Facebook messages, Mesa snagged an interview with Adrian Villaverde, who DJs at Forum every Saturday night and opened for Alesso, a globally recognized DJ, in early February. laverde, Mesa has interviewed DJs that hail from Tallahassee, Orlando, Atlanta, Minneapolis and Gainesville. She has a variety of experience spanning from daytime student to nighttime DJ and producers with record deals. Everybody just seemed eager about the project and enthusiastic about it, so thats how I started. When it comes to her persona as The Girl Downtown, Mesa said she drew her inspiration from Gossip Girl and students at NYU. Whenever Ive visited New York, Im always impressed with the students from NYU because they live this very glamorous lifestyle, always clubhopping, but they were documenting the nightclub owners, Mesa said. This girl-on-the-go feel, along with a DIY-style artistry, is why she records interviews and takes pictures and video with her iPhone, Mesa said. She also wanted to keep The Girl Downtown separate from The DJ Diaries. She doesnt want to limit herself to just electronic music. Gainesville is a huge mecca for rock and hip-hop, and she said she wants to be able to branch out in the future. Although The DJ Diaries is still new, Mesa said she has also been approached by promoters and people responsible for putting shows together. Id love to document their stories as well because theyre as much a part of the culture and the scene as the DJs and producers, Mesa said. Look out for Mesas upcoming features on artists such as Figure, Crespo and Lady Cherelle that are soon to be posted on The DJ Diaries. To me, its an art form just like any other musician, and I really want to capture that, Mesa said. DJ, from page 9Gossip Girl of music KENDRICK BROWNAvenue WriterIt was only a year ago that Tyler the Creators self-directed video for Yonkers spread like members of his crew, Odd Future, into instant After several solo projects, a Video Music Award and collaborations with musics biggest stars, the group has brought its talents together to release The OF Tape Vol. 2. The beginning of the album, a minute-and-ahalf-long monologue, properly sets the stage for humor and is a necessary disclaimer for the dark imagery in the albums lyrics. It also says that Odd Future doesnt take itself too seriously, so the listener probably shouldnt, either. Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis and Tyler, the Creator deliver the same type of twisted comedy that has established them as the shock entertainers of Odd Future, fully equipped with lines about giving your girlfriend STDs and channeling ones inner Kimbo Slice in a brawl. The video takes things a step further, featur ing scenes of Hodgy donned in a Halo-like costume receiving a lap dance while Tyler appears as a cocaine-abusing centaur complaining about the lack of Kanye West music being played. The most noticeable difference between the doubt inspired by singers Frank Ocean and Syd Tha Kyd and their increased relevance in the public eye. In White, Ocean employs the soulful crooning, lush harmonies and vivid imagery that have catapulted him to being the most critically acclaimed artist in Odd Future. Syd and producer Matt Martians form as The Internet to deliver the albums sole dance track, Ya Know. The songs drum pattern and synthesizers are stylistically reminiscent of 1990s New Jack Swing and serves as the backdrop for a story about a romantic encounter sparked at a club. Team spirit lies at the center of this albums ideology and the outro, Oldie, is a 10-minute-long posse cut featuring the majority of the members giving their most consistent lyrical performances of the album. With its jazz horn hits and hip-hop drums, Oldie reveals its hidden gem at around the 8-minute mark: Earl Sweatshirt. Leaving rumors about his Samoan-based disappearance in the air, the mystery man delivers a show-stealing verse, summing up the albums theme and valiare we talented, were rad as f--k.Odd Future releases latest album Not only are we talented, were rad as f***.Tyler the Creator music artist music

THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 RACHEL GODFREYAvenue WriterSince 2006, UFs Shakespeare in the Park has been performing the playwrights productions outside on the Plaza of the Americas. Every production is free of charge and open to the public. This year, the theater group tackled A Midsummer Nights Dream, a comedy of interlocking plots surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens to the Queen of the Amazons. The play premiered last Thursday night and ran through Saturday with a matinee per formance on Sunday afternoon. Mischief and treachery ensued this year beside the backdrop of a unique premise. Directors Max Wallace and Ashlyn Rothenberg decided on a nautical theme for the perfor mance. We wanted to do something totally new this year, said Brad Johnson, creative director of the show. The theme was incorporated largely through the set and elaborate costumes. Near ly every member of the group serves a dual role as both an actor and a crewmember. Everything has been made or put together by the people in the organization, said Shawn Daniels, public relations representative of the group. He also played Bottom. Katina Prokos, who played Helena, said that none of the performers are theater majors, and they joined the group simply because of their love of Shakespeare.A Midsummer Nights Dream comedy came to UF in March

BRIT POP DUO BEGAN U.S. TOUR NATALIA SIEUKARANAvenue WriterBritish musical pop duo The Ting Tings return four years after the release of their debut album We Started Nothing with a self-produced, power-pop sophomore album called Sounds from Nowheresville, reminding us how the group revolutionized the way America hears pop music now. sic as we know it since the days of British invasions, and pop is no doubt included in that. In the 80s, British acts showed us the wonders and versatility of synthpop, which movements, like New Romanticism. Frankly, this British pop invasion hasnt stopped, and it wont be stopping anytime soon. The Ting Tings are here to direct the indie synth in pop music years from now. Their anthems from the iconic We Started Nothing album showcased trademark elements of punklike statements (found in the U.S. sleeper hit Thats Not My Name) and chaotic, yet catchy, synth beats we came to love in Great DJ. In other words, they made a pretty awesome pop album. Now, Katie White and Jules De Martino return to show us they havent become one-hit wonders like many pop artists on the scene, and they have brought along more sounds to play with. White and De Martino come from two vastly different worlds. White was a little girl from a farm in a small town called Lowton, and she went to a school with a strong performing arts program. Her dreams of performing came true when her grandfather won the lottery and used a portion of his winnings to start a music management company. The company signed on Whites punk trio girl group, Technical Knock Out. De Martino, who was born in East London, was already an accomplished drummer in two bands before Whites father, David White, brought him in to write songs for the girl group. From this, The Ting Tings were born. The band, which formed by luck, has differences from other bands. These differences are apparent in their sound, such as random beats thrown around, one note strummed at a time and Whites sweet voice chaotic differences that just happen to work. De Martino told Spin Magazine in December that this new album was recorded during an eight-month period in Paris, Berlin and Merci, Spain, but the songs were written in multiple places on the road dur ing tours, the backs of cabs, etc. hence the name, Sounds from Nowheresville. is a more stripped-down version of their synth-y sound, and it uses more actual instrumentation. The video was released in October and has garnered a million hits on YouTube so far. The song starts off with White strumming guitar riffs that are reminiscent of old-school punk like the Sex Pistols while sassily singing statement-like lyrics such as, My friends are making me higher and higher. Theyre killing me with Seeming to have taken advantage of their traveling, the second single, Silence, sounds like an homage to their artsy beginnings and is reminiscent of German s experimental rock. Guns shoot in the background, and White drones out somber lyrics in a monotone voice: Hold, hold your talk now. And let them all listen to your silence. Its great. Hands is the song that takes aspects of what we love from 80s pop. Think of the fast, sugary, bubblegum beats weve come to love. During the song, White asks the age-old question, Whats a girl to do with two hands? Hit Me Down Sonny is largely a world Lil Wayne tried to venture into a few years ago. The lyrics are bling percussion beats. In the Spin interview, De Martino says that record stores are becoming obsolete, so while touring, they listened to music the way a majority of music listeners listen to it now: mp3s. So instead of listening to a record, they would compile playlists, which then led to the idea to create an album that was a playlist. The Ting Tings do pretty much that. They put us on a ride of genres and time periods by putting together the best aspects of each, all while adding their signature elements to it. The end result is an album that shows us they have the chops and skills to play this little game called pop music, and they play it pretty damn well in just 10 tracks. Sounds from Nowheresville is already out, and The Ting Tings started their U.S. tour. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012Photo courtesy of The Ting TingsKatie White and Jules De Martino represent Britains indie synthpop sound.

THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Live Tweets from the NCAA TournamentBeat writer John Boothe (@JJBoothe) and sports editor Matt Watts (@WattMatts) will be in Phoenix tonight bringing you live tweets from UFs Sweet 16 showdown with Marquette. Tebow on the moveThe Denver Broncos traded Tim Tebow to the New York Jets on Wednesday night, ending a two-day saga in which the polarizing former Gator was the focal point of a national media spotlight.AP PhotoFlorida center Patric Young towels off during a practice last week in Omaha, Neb. Young and Marquette forward Jae Crowder have gone back and forth in the media this week ahead of their Sweet 16 meeting tonight in Phoenix. JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer Two days before they were due to share the same court, Floridas players were already feeling the extra dose of physicality Marquette usually has in store for its opponents. While the No. 3 seed Golden Eagles have built a reputation this season for being a tough, physical team that claws for rebounds and thrives off forcing turnovers, the seventhseeded Gators adjusted their practices accordingly this week in Phoenix to simulate Mar quettes defensive maelstrom. These last two practices weve had have probably been our most physical practices weve had, freshman Brad Beal said. Weve been fouling each other and slapping at the ball. Were prepared for them. We know theyre going to try to slap at us when we get a rebound. Heading into Floridas Sweet 16 matchup with Marquette tonight at 10:17 in U.S. Air ways Center, the Gators are expecting to be challenged on a plane akin to psychological warfare, according to center Patric Young. The 6-foot-9 Young will be matching up at times with 6-foot-6 Marquette forward Jae Crowder, who averages 17.6 points in 33 minutes per game and is a part of a Golden Eagles starting frontcourt that sees little time on the bench. After suffering a season-ending ACL injury to center Chris Otule and with forward Davante Gardner still working his way back into Marquettes lineup from a Jan. 28 knee sprain, the Golden Eagles have relied primarily on a seven-man rotation. Theyre trying to break our will, Young said. Theyre trying to catch us in a moment versity and we cant show any weakness, even if we get hit and fouls arent called. If you get through it. Though Young predicts pushing through no-call fouls by Marquette and moving on from frustrating plays will be key in Florida not getting rattled by the Golden Eagles, he said he hasnt taken any special measures to prepare for the game. Its just how I play anyways, he said. Tuesday on Marquettes offenses chances of scoring against Floridas defense, which alinto the NCAA Tournament to shoot 45 per cent or better. However, since the tournament has started, the Gators have appeared to be a different team. We held teams at less than 50 points the credibility behind that comment comes from, Young said. After beating 10th-seeded Virginia 71-45 in the second round and No. 15 seed Norfolk State 84-50 on Sunday, Florida became the only Sweet 16 team to limit both of its opponents to fewer than 50 points. Were just a real humble team, Young said. People tend to put us under the radar but that doesnt matter. The only thing that matters is when its time to set up on the court. We just have to go play basketball.

Theres one bitter memory that stands out. It obviously left a sour taste in our mouth, Tucker said. A lot of the guys still remember the game like it was yesterday. I know I do. At the hands of Southeastern Conference rival South Carolina, Florida watched a 53-17 season dissipate into disappointnational championship, the Gators were stonewalled by selfinnings after failing to push a run across during a bases-loaded, no-outs situation in the bottom of the ninth.

We have no choice (but to be prepared), UF coach Kevin OSullivan said after the game. Theyre young.

Five freshman have charted at least 10 starts for the Gamecocks this season, and South Carolina is in the bottom half of the SEC in nearly every offensive category, including last in runs scored (93).

The Gamecocks offer a blueprint of how not to handle an SEC road trip with a young lineup. Last weekend, South Carolina opened SEC play at Kentucky and was promptly swept by the currently undefeated Wildcats after putting up just three runs in each of the three games. That was also South Caroseason. Florida conditioned itself on the road earlier this season with a three-game series at No. 12 Miami. But Columbia, where 9,000 fans will pack Carolina Stadium all three days, is an entirely different monster. Junior catcher Mike Zunino last played there when he was a freshman. Its loud, so we just have to be able to communicate and grind out every at-bat, he said. If our [bullpen] keeps throwing strikes and doing their job, all we have to do is keep competing. Etc.: Sophomore right-hander Jonathon Crawford will once again get the third weekend start for Florida against South Carolina. OSullivan expects sophomore Karsten Whitson to be back soon. Were looking at either maybe getting a start against Florida State on Tuesday for a couple innings or starting him against Ole Miss, he said. Obviously, hell be on a pitch count, but hes ready.UFs Whitson out again this weekend18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012 BASEBAALL, from page 17FOOTbBAllLL TOM GREENAlligator Staff Writer To say 2011 was a disappointment for Quinton Dunbar would be an understatement. After appearing in just two games as a true freshman in 2010, the 6-foot-1, 183-pound receiver drew praise from coaches and teammates alike last spring and into fall camp. It seemed he was poised for a breakout year one the Gators needed from a receiver. However, all that buildup never translated to games, as Dunbar caught just 14 passes for 216 yards and a pair of scores in 12 games. His the second-to-last game of the season against Furman on Nov. 19. I mean, I cant even answer that, Dunbar said last week when asked why the preseason hype didnt dont know what happened. But with one week of spring practice done, new offensive coordinator Brent Pease said he has been particularly impressed with Dunbar, more so than any other receiver. While Andre Debose led the team last season in receiving touchdowns (four), receiving yards (432) and yards per catch (27), Pease said he hasnt seen the redshirt junior emerge just yet as the playmaker Floridas offense needs. Instead, Pease praised Dunbars play early this spring. Quintons really done it well in four days really done well, Pease said Wednesday. (He has made) drastic improvements every day. Most notably, Pease complimented improvements in Dunbars catching ability high praise considering Pease said the receiving corps as a whole needs more work on fundamentals such as stance, catching, blocking and releasing on routes. Dunbar said he is focusing on all of those things this offseason in order to try to take his game to the next level. So far, it seems to be paying off, as Pease has seen Dunbar make several big plays early in practice and threat come fall. Practice is built to go fast and be challenging so that games are easier, Pease said. Hes starting to play the game faster. Hes not thinking so much. When kids are thinking, they play slow, because they dont know everything, they dont Obviously were working through that, but Ive seen the pace of how he plays the game every day get faster and faster and faster. Pease working more with receivers: Given his recent background as a wide receivers coach, Pease said he tends to be pickier when it comes to coaching receivers, and has been hands on with the Gators group of pass-catchers this spring.

THURSDAY, MARCH 22, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 19 Countless hours of statistical analysis provide a realistic account of Floridas defensive performance this season with and without its best defender, Will Yeguete. Despite losing the lockdown forward, the Gators are playing their best defense of the year in the NCAA Tournament.GREG LUCAAlligator Staff WriterFloridas defense has been a roller coaster this season, all because of an injury to the teams sixth man. When the Gators lost Will Yeguete to a broken foot on Feb. 21, they lost without question their best defensive player. away the worst Florida has played this season. But, when the NCAA Tournament started, everything changed. UF got back on track, shutting down Virginia and Norfolk State to earn a date with Marquette tonight in the Sweet 16. crunching, I have been able to quantify the value of Yeguetes 21.9 minutes per game, pinpoint how far Florida slipped when he was injured, and identify what the Gators have done to round into top form at the perfect time. When it comes to measuring an individual players defensive performance, traditional boxscore data is wholly inadequate. Scorekeepers chart only blocks, steals and defensive rebounds for each player. Enter Project Defensive Scoresheet, proposed by Dean Oliver in his 2003 book Basketball on Paper. Instead of noting only steals and blocks, this scoring system requires that credit be issued for every forced miss, forced turnover or defensive rebound. It also assigns blame for every allowed basket or free throw, providing a complete picture of a players defensive contribution. Credit for wide-open misses and unforced turnovers is spread across the entire team, as is blame for transition baskets, late-game intentional fouls and broken plays. If a certain defender is clearly responsible for missing a rotation that results in a wide-open shot, he gets the blame for the make. But, more often than not, I assign open shots to Team and let Billy Donovan decide who is at fault. Formulas in Olivers book boil those totals down into stops each players stop percentage, defensive engagement percentage and overall defensive rating, which is the measure of how many points a players team is expected to give up with that player on the court for 100 possessions. The result is a chart like the one shown below, from Floridas 84-50 win over Norfolk State. After going through that process for each of UFs Southeastthose against Ohio State, Syracuse, Arizona, Texas A&M, Florihappened before Yeguete was lost for the season, including the Feb. 21 game against Auburn when he broke his foot. Yeguete was Floridas best defender, leading the team with a 98.2 defensive rating despite boasting the highest defensive engagement percentage (29.3). Because defensive ratings are calculated in relation to the willingness to take charges and excellent rebounding ability, leading the team with 6.5 defensive rebounds per 40 minutes and a turnover forced on 6.8 percent of his possessions. Brad Beal checked in right behind him with a 98.3 rating thanks to strong rebounding and a team-best 30.1 opponent forcing a turnover. Young and Murphy were heavily involved inside and held their own, but didnt force enough turnovers or grab enough Walker forced turnovers with his quickness, often jumping in to intercept passes as teams tried to break the press. But, at 5-foot-8, opponents had an easy time hitting 46.3 percent of their shots right over him. Boynton and Scottie Wilbekin, considered the teams premier perimeter defenders, did poorly in the study because of how often they got caught up in screening action and yielded open jumpers. Although they were rarely beaten off the dribble, the single shortcoming was enough to doom their defensive ratings because each sported such a low engagement rate. Cody Larson struggled in limited playing time. The defensive numbers were average, which was good enough given Floridas offense. But, once Yeguete left the lineup, the defense took a major slide. UFs defensive rating in the tests. The individual ratings naturally followed suit. Murphy and Prather struggled moving into new roles, and UFs press became mostly ineffective. Field goal percentages rose and turnover percentages fell almost across the board. New rotations meant breakdowns in both transition and half-court defense, leading to a number of open, unblameable shots that crushed Floridas overall rating. One explanation is the obvious jump in competition, as UF rough patch. Still, Floridas defensive efforts in that span were among the worst any team had played against those opponents, according to KenPom.com. UFs performances against Vanderbilt and Georgia were the third-worst any unit has played against those teams this season. The competition weakened in the tournaments opening weekend, but that alone doesnt account for UFs revival. fensive game any team has played against Virginia this year, and followed that with the third-best defensive game any team has played against Norfolk State. Wilbekin, in particular, raised his play, allowing opponents of the possessions he was involved in. and defensive rebounding numbers skyrocketed. Floridas press was back near its normal form, sparking major runs as UF notched decisive wins in each game. The pressure did not actively force turnovers as much as it made Virginia and Norfolk State uncomfortable. The teams played at UFs tempo and occasionally took poor shots while combining against Virginias Mike Scott and Norfolks Kyle OQuinn, usually forcing contested jump shots. The Gators often doubled both Scott and OQuinn. UF also frequently doubled the ball on pick-and-pop action, unafraid to leave inconsistent shooters open for long jump shots. Florida played with a newfound focus, intensity and commitment to the gameplan, even without its best defender. Reading too much into a two-game sample can be dangerous, but the results at least give the Gators hope that the defense will be able to bring them through another weekend and into the Final Four.
