See story, page 13. 82 /62 GATORS WON 68-58. MATT WATTS Alligator Staff Writer PHOENIX Marquette slapped, pushed and attempted to manhandle Florida; Florida defended, frustrated and outhustled Marquette. In the end, hustle and defense won. The No. 7 seed Gators (26-10) have played their way into a second straight berth in the Elite Eight after defeating the third-seeded Golden Eagles (27-8) 68-58 on Thursday night in Phoenix. Florida advances to play No. 4 seed Louisville on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. for a chance to make a trip to the Final Four. In the buildup to the game, Marquette forward and Big East Player of the Year Jae Crowder questioned UFs ability on the defensive end, and that proved to be a mistake. Florida allowed an average of ment wins against Virginia and Norfolk State, and the team continued its defensive dominance against a high-scoring, fast-paced Marquette squad. The Gators held the Golden Eagles to 30 points on 31.4 percent total just one point more than their season-low of 57 on 30.8 percent shooting. We knew we could defend these guys because they werent recreating the wheel when it came to offense, Patric Young said. We knew we could stop these guys and it wasnt like they were a high-organized offense that could just run their stuff around us. We knew what we could do; Id rather them think we cant guard them so theyre surprised. establish a quick 9-4 lead with a sig attributes that made the Golden Eagles a savvy Final Four pick even before Missouri and Michigan State were upset. We were a little nervous, Young said. When you know whats on the line, its one-and-done if you cant come away the victory, you get kind of nervous because theres so much pressure on you.

Meyers spoke to an audience of about 3,100 in the Stephen C. OConnell Center at the event sponsored by Accent Speakers Bureau and Jewish Awareness Month. A line spanned the sidewalk from Gate 1 to Gate 2 at 6 p.m. An hour later, it stretched to Stadium Road. The show began at 8 p.m. Cassidy Howell and Lauren Bawer said they and a group of six friends took twohour shifts waiting in line since noon. We absolutely love SNL, said Howell, an 18-year-old anthropology freshman. Bawer, a 19-year-old applied physiology and kinesiology freshman, said she and some of her friends are obsessed with the show and Meyers in particular. I thought thered be more people here, Bawer said. Accent paid an agency representing Meyers $50,000 for the appearance, said chairman Corey Portney. Although the event was billed as a combination event hosted by Accent and Jewish Awareness Month, Meyers said he is not Jewish after an audience member asked.

The fee, which would have cost undergraduates $6.76 per credit hour, was meant to supplement graduate assistant stipends. The stipends increased 3 percent last year, but graduate assistant fees were also raised 16 percent. Only one board member voted in favor of the undergraduate enhancement fee. During the 2010-11 academic year, UF employed about 1,500 graduate assistants who taught one-third of undergraduate classes. UF President Bernie Machen told UFs Board of Trustees in December that adding the fee would be an investment in the futures of both the undergraduate and graduate programs. So far, theres no word on whether UF will seek another way to supplement stipends or replace the fee. We have no further plans at this point, UF spokesman Steve Orlando said. The Board of Governors also commended UF and Florida State University for leading the state in their efforts to identify and prevent hazing. UF and FSU are currently the only schools in the State University System that provide professional staff training in hazing prevention strategies, according to information from the Board of Governors. FSU is the only university with a dedicated anti-hazing website.

Attendees paid for two hours worth of dinner, music and shoving pie in peoples faces. Dance Marathon staff sold about 1,000 tickets, and all proceeds will be added to the annual events donations, said spokesman Eden Joyner. Dance Marathon at UF raises money for the Childrens Miracle Network at Shands Hospital. Par ticipants ask for donations, and they stand for 26.2 hours. This year, participants will stand from 11:48 a.m. on March 31 to 2:08 p.m on April 1 at the Stephen C. OConnell Center, said Joyner, a 22-year-old public relations and political science senior. Garrett Chappell, a 20-year-old advertising junior, was pied in the face by Brandon Corsentino, a 20-year-old marketing sophomore. Corsentino works on the Dance Marathon marketing team under Chappell, the marketing director. I do it all for the kids, Chappell said. The kickoff was supposed to end with Overall Director Alex Spratt lighting a 2-and-a-half foot tall electronic candle. However, Joyner said that because people left and the sky was still light, the candle will be lit at the opening ceremonies March 31. Spratt spoke to the crowd about when a child leaves the hospital and cuts off his or her hospital band. Attendees were given bands to to wear until Dance Marathon. junior Lindsay Taylor, a community events captain, said she will keep her band on throughout Dance Marathon. children go through while theyre in the hospital, she said.

Organizers sell 1,000 tickets at Dance Marathon eventON C AMPUS BENJAMIN S. BRASCHAlligator Writer Gainesville still has an unemployment rate of 7.4 percent. To combat that statistic, a UF club has organized a job fair to help put unemployed adults back into the workforce. The UF chapter of Students in Free Enterprise will host a free job fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Center for Innovation and Economic Development, located at 530 W University Ave. Travis Wright, project manager for the club, said the job fair, which will include resume critiques, practice interviews and legal advice, was set up because students felt drawn to helping others succeed in the job market students who will hit the same market soon enough. In 2009, the unemployment rate in Gainesville was 6.6 percent. In 2008, it was 4.1 percent. In 2007, it was 2.9 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The unemployment rate in February 2012 was 7.4 percent for the city. When people go back into the workforce, they are helping themselves, and they are helping the community as a whole, said Wright, a 19-yearomore. In college, we have so many resources to pull from. This event is for people who havent worked in a few years and dont really know how to get back into the workplace. Mayor Craig Lowe and Joe Johnson, director of business ser vices for Florida Works, will be at the fair to talk about the job market in the city. Lowe will talk with participants about unemployment in the city, Wright said. Johnson will talk about Florida Works and give interviewing tips. Some people are at a crossroads, Johnson said. They are at a job and dont know what to do. We are here to help them. He said he is happy to see students reach out to their community, even though some students feel like Gainesville is a temporary home. When you get the students that UF students are involved in the community, he said. The resume opens the door, but the interviews close it on the way out, Johnson said.

The fraternity is returning to UF after its Alpha Epsilon chapter received a fouryear ban for hazing in 2008. Staff from its April 6 to recruit new members.

Then, Pi Kappa Phi will join the Inter fraternity Council and participate in rush. This time around, were going to recruit the guys that we know want to be different, Johansson said. We want them to challenge the fraternity stereotype that you see in pop culture. Ryan Montgomery, a 19-year-old psychology freshman, accepted one of the two bids extended so far. His dad was a member of the fraternity at UF in the s, but the service aspect of the fraternity is what attracted Montgomery. Pi Kappa Phis philanthropy, called Push America, supports people with disabilities. Montgomery hopes to help lead the chapter in the fall.

One recent caller, a student in UFs College of Dentistry, wanted help overcoming a phobia that caused her to faint every time she saw sharp dental tools. After a few sessions with Perrine, the student was able to perform Part of the demand for hypnotherapy may be due to the fact that levels of stress and anxiety among students reached an all-time high this year.

Perrine, who has a bachelors degree in psychology from UF, used metaphors to juxtapose conscious and unconscious thought during her library lecture. When the mind wasnt a Word document, it was a piece of software, ripe for hacking, or a double-decker bus, driven by consciousness. Understanding secret desires of the brain and staying optimistic are keys to changing deep-rooted behaviors, thoughts and feelings, she explained. At the end of her session, Perrine instructed audience members to close their eyes and breathe deeply, in unison, for a few minutes. Then the hypnotist started her customary countdown to reality.

Apparently, repeating the same phrase over and over is enough to convince people that unethical actions are suddenly acceptable. ethical-and-what-is-legal DART to former Unite Party spokeswoman Christina Bonarrigo. After Tuesdays senate meeting, Bonarrigo told the Alligator there was nothing wrong with Waldman remaining silent about Tiemeier throwing away newspapers. Of course, its not illegal to refrain from reporting a crime. However, saying that its ethical to withhold information shows her completely distorted worldview. Press Law Center that the Alligator fabricated the story about Tiemeier throwing away newspapers. One would think that Waldman, the vice chairwoman bring forth information about the incident if she knew who was involved. Instead, Waldman remained silent. How is that not unethical?

Robert Bales went on a vicious killing spree that resulted in the deaths of 16 Afghan civilians. Both nations were left wondering what led to this deadly outburst from an active member of the U.S. military. A great deal of controversy quickly surrounded the issue. Some condemn the soldier for his crime and demand punishment. Others blame post-traumatic stress disorder, among other mental conditions, and claim he is not at fault. Despite the raging debate among the public, I believe Bales deserves punishment for the crimes he committed. The events occurred on March 11, when Bales allegedly snuck off his post in the middle of the night and moved from house to house, shooting and burning inwere children. He then returned to his post and turned serious. According to The Associated Press, the Afghan militia called the attack a blood-soaked and inhumane crime and the attacker representative of sick-minded American savages. The Taliban vowed to seek revenge for every single victim with the help of Allah. There threats of retaliation against Bales family, and many people fear for his neighborhood in Bonney Lake. Additionally, the slayings, which are collectively said to be among the worst atrocities committed by U.S. forces during the Afghan war, happened amid the deepening public outrage prompted by last months Quran burnings. Contributing to the growing distrust between Afghans and U.S. forces, this recent incident ability to accomplish its mission in Afghanistan. Despite the disturbing nature of his crime and the severe reper cussions the entire nation will feel because of his attack, many argue that Bales cannot be blamed for what he did. They speculate he may have suffered from PTSD and his 11-year Army career had stalled with a missed the same pressures and stress that Bales felt, and none of them intentionally shot and killed more than a dozen innocent civilians. All of these courageous citizens dedicated their lives to serving their country by their own the U.S. military is soiled by another soldiers devastating decision. enemy who wears no uniforms and hides among civilians to use them as shields. I have not endured multiple war while the ability to really see any success evades me. I have not walked in Robert Bales shoes. However, no mental condition or amount of stress could justify Bales heinous crimes. The bottom line is Bales killed defenseless men, women and children in cold blood. He undermined a 10-year mission, endangered his family and dishonored his country. He now awaits his fate in a cell in the military jail in Fort Leavenworth, Kan. When his court date but instead deserves to pay the price for the crimes he committed and the damage he caused this country.

FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letters to the EditorAlligator should apologize to Sen. WaldmanI am writing on behalf of Sen. Katie Waldman. I have carefully read the various articles appearing in the Alligator, including those authored by the Editorial Board and by reporters such as Clare Lennon and Samantha Shavell. The articles are biased and portray Waldman unfairly. In this regard, it is noteworthy that the March 12 article by your Guest Columnist, Jason Tiemeier, only mentioned that Waldman was walking with him around campus. At no time did Tiemeier state that Waldman was in any way involved with his misconduct, directly or indirectly. Indeed, Tiemeier said that I let my sense of competition get in the way of integrity . . Conspicuously absent was any implication that Waldman engaged in misconduct or even contemporaneously knew of Tiemeiers actions. Waldmans only public commentary in respect to this matter was that, upon Tiemeier advising her of his actions, she promptly counseled him not to do so again. Never theless, the Alligators repeated and public attacks upon Waldman are unnecessarily man has devoted substantial hours to worthy student causes in her capacity as a senator, including expanded library hours and security. It has not gone unnoticed that the Alligators Editorial Board supported the minor ity party in the student elections last month. Moreover, we are aware that the Alligators Editorial Board was publicly displeased with the Unite Partys public campaign (including social networking sites) to balance the negative publicity heaped upon it by the Alligator. It should also be noted that our Student Government, under which the Unite Party has been in majority control by the will, and vote, of the student population for more than four years, has collaboratively decided to substantially reduce the amount of funding for advertisements in the Alligator and, instead, utilizing those savings for purposes derstand that these actions by the Unite Party have frustrated the Alligator, thereby explaining its own behavior with regard to the Unite Party and Waldman. For these reasons, the Alligators Editorial Board and reporters have unprofessionally lashed out at the Unite Party in general and Waldman in particular. Under the circumstances, the Alligator should now apologize to Waldman based upon her manifest innocence in this matter. Brittney Austin Former senator In view of our nations tragic history of segregation and discrimination, lawmakers realized that action was necessary to correct the many wrongs done to blacks and other minorities during minority citizens preferential treatment for college admission and scholarships. At the time, this reverse-discrimination was exactly what the nation needed, and it served as an apology to those citizens whose lives were hurt by prior policies. However, continuing ination case against UT, is going to the Supreme Court. The court admissions once and for all. discrimination to combat discrimination encourages racial hatred in our society. When discriminated against, whites and AsianAmericans may feel resentment toward those races that have been selected as the most elite of the disadvantaged. In turn, AfricanAmericans and Hispanics could feel inferior because the government is essentially telling them that for no reason other than the color of their skin they need special assistance to put them on par with their peers. Ideally, we would like to reach a state in which society does not judge its members based on the color of their skin but rather on the content of their character, as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. said. If he could see how his speeches are being interpreted and where the direction of racial equality is going in our nation today, he would surely roll over in his grave. Reversing the direction of inequality does not bring anyone closer to equality. Perhaps what is most foolish doesnt directly target the problem it tries to solve. It assumes that because African Americans and Hispanics are typically more economically disadvantaged than whites and Asians, African Americans and Hispanics should receive extra support. However, it would seem to make more sense to give the economically disadvantaged more support, regardless of race. For example, who needs a scholarship more: a black child from a family of doctors and lawyers or a white child living in a slum with a single parent working as a janitor? Financial data does arships and admission procedures aim to help the disadvantaged, they should target the disadvantaged. It makes no sense to simply target a race and assume that race will be disadvantaged. economic equality. While they point to valid statistics, they have represent the impoverished at higher rates than the general population. But by taking a socioeconomic approach to the problem, the scholarships. And, while more of a stretch, factoring socioeconomic ever, race has no place in either criterion. Though this may seem to be a complicated issue, it all boils down to a single underlying question: Should it be legal to discriminate against people based on the color of their skin? Answer that, and youve answered whether Stephen McGarvey is a columnist for the Daily Texan at the University of Texas. UWireIn his 2008 book, In Defense of Food: An Eaters Manifesto, Michael Pollan advised people to restore simplicity to food practices. Pollans message, Eat food, mostly plants, resonated strongly with the myriad of groups and differentiated movements that have morphed into the food movement. In emphasizing simplicity, these recent efforts at food reform differed from their predecessors by moving past the politics of food production, regulation and inspection. They focus instead on the diverse ethical, cultural, environmental and health implications of food. Yet, despite that broad focus, the recent food movement is inherently political. By challenging us to slow down and carefully consider the consequences of food consumption and creation, the movement and its crisscrossing components challenge us to rethink the role of government in the new politics of food. Though the movement often strives for simplicity in food practices, its debates hardly have narrow scope. In one subset of food politics, health and lifestyle concerns drive efforts to change Americas food culture This has given rise to campaigns promoting gardening, composting, healthy cooking and food literacy. Likewise, as Americans continue to struggle against diet-related illnesses, government health experts are tasked with balancing the countrys needs for greater access to quality food and limiting unhealthy food in programs such as school lunches. This debate is central to efforts to reform the food-stamp program, to which ensuring positive health outcomes is more important than ever, given that one out of every seven Americans uses the program. In these instances, the food movement has stressed the importance of fostering positive relationships with healthy food. Elsewhere, there is concern about how governments impact agricultural practices. From subsidies in the U.S. Farm Bill to preferential trade policies for European agricultural producers in the EUs Common Agricultural Policy, debates continue as to which crops should be supported and what effects those preferential policies have on developing foreign markets. Genetically modimental effects are also included in this discussion. Fur thermore, political moves to support agriculture at the expense of natural resources have recently come under Ultimately, moves toward sustainable, grass-grazed, cage-free and organic foods, as well as improved food access and culture, form the backbone of the modern food movement. Still, as Chinas example shows, oversight is still necessary, particularly with regard to the deceptive foodmarketing tactics of corporations in the developing world. If there is one overarching goal that everyone in the food movement agrees on, it is avoiding exporting past mistakes of the United States unsustainable and unhealthy food practices abroad.

More content available online of the NCAA Championships, and the womens tennis team travels to Mississippi State today. See stories online at alligatorSports.org THE END OF GREGULATIONFlorida fans need to cherish every moment of this NCAA Tournament run, because its the last time theyll get to see Brad Beal in a Gators uniform. As the season has gone on, Beal has become one of the best players in all of college basketball, and theres almost no chance he comes back for a sophomore season to play in a system that is nothing like what hell run at the next level. ment on his future, but the writing is on the wall. Besides, what more does he have to prove? In UFs 68-58 win against Marquette Thursday night, Beal was nothing short of dominant. He scored 21 points on 8-of-10 shooting, driving through the lane for acfrom long range. He grabbed six more rebounds, coming up just shy of his team-leading aver age of 6.7 per game. He even notched four assists with only two turnovers, highlighting how far hes come in terms of protecting the ball. After struggling with it out down the stretch, averaging just 1.4 per game over UFs last eight contests. Not bad for a freshman averages a team-high 34.2 minutes per game. Beal has even gotten it done on the defensive end, where his ability to match up with everything from guards to power forwards After impressive tourney run, Beal should be one and done JOHN BOOTHEAlligator Staff Writer PHOENIX Before the Gators could beat Marquette, they had to talk Butler. elling to U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix, Billy Donovan rehashed the memory of last years 74-71 overtime loss to the Bulldogs, to grab loose balls and their failure to make hustle plays down the stretch. Against a team like the No. 3 seed Golden Eagles, Donovan knew repeating the same meltsentence on the seventh-seeded Gators season. While most of the blame Flor idas coach heard last year after the Elite Eight defeat to Butler concerned both Kenny Boyntons and Erving Walkers shot selection, Donovan felt the criticism was unwarranted. What we didnt do is we gave up the last eight minutes of the game something like 13 points off of loose ball situations, Donovan said on Monday. In my opinion thats where the game was won and lost. On Thursday night in the Sweet 16 against the Golden Eagles, there was no bowing out of the NCAA Tournament again for the Gators due to a lack of hustle. Instead, Florida became the aggressor and buckled down on defensive end to beat Marquette 68-58. For the second straight year, the Gators advance to the Elite Eight and will play Satur day against No. 4 seed Louisville at 4:30 p.m. With the Gators shooting 25.9 percent from three on the night, senior guard Erving Walker said the foundation for Floridas run began on the defensive end in the opening 20 minutes. Our defense was the key, Walker said. Obviously, we struggled shooting the ball. Brad (Beal) made some great shots for us today but defense was what won it for us. Coming into the game, Donovan said Florida would be over coming mental mistakes against Marquettes defense, which aver -Hustle, defense key Floridas win BRYAN HOLTAlligator Writer when the contact came. He looked uncomfortable from the moment he stepped out of the bullpen before 8,242 booing fans, but now it reached an uncharacteristic crescendo.

South Carolina still has Floridas number. It was a great ball game. We just kind of let the seventh inning slip away from us, UF coach Kevin OSullivan said. Its just one game and obviously well come back tomor row ready to go. The No. 8 Gamecocks (175, 1-3 SEC) defeated the No. 1 Gators (20-2, 3-1 SEC), 9-3, to snap Floridas school-record 18-game winning streak and get a jump on the three-game rematch of last years College Entering the game having cluding a sweep at the hands of No. 16 Kentucky and a Wednesday night loss to Wofford the Gamecocks were ready to throw everything they had at the Gators. Staff ace and consensus 2011 All-American Michael Roth got the start for the Gamecocks and worked 6.2 innings of four-hit ball, leaving with the game deadlocked at two. It was where South Carolina went from there that got the sellout crowd buzzing.

makes him Floridas best and most valuable defender. His greatness has me conditioned such that when Junior Cadougan was sprinting down the court for an appar ent transition layup, I instinctively looked for a trailing Beal. I was rewarded with a way on to a few highlight reels, as Beals right hand Beals second block was his 31st, one more than Patric Young has this season. Beals shown scouts everything they need to see. DraftExpress.com has him as the No. 7 overall prospect, and ESPNs Chad Ford ranks him No. 4. Both peg him as the No. 1 guard. There are a few reasonable arguments as to why he could come back. Although hes curbed the turnover problem of late, his 77 giveaways are still tops on UFs roster. Another year as Floridas best player would give him plenty of opportunity to work on his ballhandling. As recently as Sundays game against Norfolk State, Beal was entrusted with point guard duties against a bigger, stronger opponent, and that trend should continue into next season when point guard Er ving Walker will no longer be on the team. He might also be convinced another year could help his outside shooting touch. Even after Fridays 3-for-5 showing, hes still shot just 33.7 percent from outside this season. He was expected to be the next Ray Allen, but the results from the perimeter havent matched. With another year to perfect his stroke, he could enter the NBA after his sophomore season without a hole in his game. But thats not enough to keep him around. Not when hes being asked to do so much that hell never have to worry about again. As an NBA two-guard, he wont be relied on to crash the boards as often as he is at UF. More college experience isnt likely to hurt Beal, but how much will that experience really help when its out of position in a three-happy, four-guard system totally for eign to the NBA ranks? Beal already has all of the smarts, instincts and feel for the game that talented players make a pit stop in college to learn. UF fans need to be ready to say good bye, because Beals out as soon as the Gators are. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 15Murphys 10 boards lead team effort pulling down an 9-5 advantage on the offensive glass which was good for 13 second-chance points compared to just two for Florida. We knew we had to do a better job there, coach Billy Donovan said. I told our guys at halftime, with Marquette, theyve had a lot of comeback victories. They keep coming and they keep coming. But the Gators fought back, establishing a team-wide identity for pulling down the rebounds as seven players had three or more rebounds. Florida closed the half on a 9-0 run to establish a 36-30 lead at the break, and an assist from Brad Beal and a breakaway from Kenny Boynton. The Gators outrebounded the Eagles 6-2 during the span. Its a team effort when it comes to rebounding, Young said. That was huge because they had so many points and second-chance opportuwe had to limit. Marquette got back into it with six straight points to cut the lead to 48-40 while holding Florida scoreless for more than four minutes. But Erik points and 10 boards, ended the drought with a tough inside bucket the type of uncharacteristic play Florida made all game, and the type of play that made the difference. Murphys just aggressive on tournament), Beal said. Coach has been on his butt about rebounding in practice and its just carried over into the game. Shots werent falling all night for 15 points. He dealt with foul trouble throughout and had multiple shots rattle in and out, as did the entire Marquette team, which took 21 shots from three despite attempting just 16.9 per game entering the game. Marquette made a late run to bring the game as close as 58-52 with 3:18 left, but a three from Erving Walker over Todd Mayo with 2:07 remaining extended Floridas touches on the teams 26th and most important victory to date. One more game to that Final Four and to put up another board in our practice facility, Young said. Were right there. We have to get this next one. We have to.

The top-ranked Gators men open their outdoor season with Anthony Amodio on pole vault, while the No. 11 women debut with Claire Spurling and Caitlin Schuessler on the pole vault. We cant get excited about what we did indoors and let that keep us from doing what were capable of doing outdoors, coach Mike Holloway said. This is the third consecutive year the men enter the outdoor season as the preseason No. 1. However, each of the previous two years the men have fallen short of third in 2011 at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. After winning the Southeastern Conference Indoor for outdoors than last years tie for 34th. Hopefully the women recognize what my staff and I recognize, which is that we are one of the elite teams in the country, Holloway said. In addition to having a better start this year with the indoor season, the womens team also features 12 nationally ranked athletes including Darshay Davis heptathalon). Along with the women, the mens team has 13 nationally ranked athwhom won individual indoor titles earlier this month and enter the outdoor season ranked No. 1 in their respective events. When you look at whats going on here with recruiting over the last few years, we got a great group of athletes on both sides, Holloway said.

We got to keep coaching; we got to keep training hard.UF opens outdoor season at UCFHolloway Gators rebound from turnovers, mistakesages 16.6 forced turnovers per game. When the Golden Eagles were able to hamstring the Gators into one of their 11 giveaways, it usually didnt take long for the UF player responsible for the turnover or one of his teammates to right the error. In a tied game with less than half, the 5-foot-8 Walker responded from a carrying call on offense by hauling in a defensive rebound on Marquettes ensuing possession over 6-foot1 guard Junior Cadougan. Walker was also fouled on the play and made a pair of free throws at the other end to give Florida a 27-25 lead with 4:49 left in the opening half. Against Marquette theyre going to turn you over sometimes and theres going to be mistakes in the game, Walker said. Thats how they like to play but youve got to cause them to make mistakes and just move on to the next play when it happens. The trend spilled over into the second half when the Gators held a 54-44 lead with 5:47 left to play. During a Marquette possession, Florida withstood two offensive rebounds and two missed shots by the Golden Eagles in a frenzied 20 seconds before Beal blocked the third attempt by MU senior Jae Crowder. Floridas Patric Young came up with one of his nine rebounds off the block and opened up a fast break opportunity for Beal at the other end. Just got in there, Young said. We knew how great of a loose ball, rebounding team they were and the last few games we have been doing a really good job rebounding. Our guards have been getting in almost got 10.
