MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterThe plans to open an ice rink downtown have been delayed again. But the city hopes to appease any frustrated patrons by offering some holiday fun for free. The ice rink, previously scheduled to open today, will open Monday in the Bo Diddley Community Plaza. The rink will offer free entry skates included until Wednesday. The rink will stay open until Jan. 13. After Wednesday, skating will cost $10 an hour. If a patron brings his or her own ice skates, the price is $7 an hour. Midwest Display Inc., the holidaydisplay company managing the rink, tent that will house the Plaza Ice Palace. Russell Etling, city cultural affairs programs coordinator, said there were some issues getting the 35-foot-tall tent installed. The tent houses the custommade ice rink, and the rink cant be frolighting displays across the plaza and holiday-themed murals on the plywood walls surrounding the ice. The downtown plaza has been without an annual ice rink since the cityfunded ice rink shut down in 2007 due to budget issues, according to Alligator archives. Midwest Display Inc. brought the rink back this year and is setting up the ice rink at its own expense as a vendor. Everybody is very excited about it opening and returning to Gainesville, Etling said. Its a great opportunity for family fun and celebrating the holiday season.

SAMANTHA SHAVELLAlligator Staff WriterStarting in Spring, students will be able to check out iPads from Library West. The library will have 30 iPads available and two backups, said Anne Allen, assistant director of UF Information Technology. The program is an extension of the netbooks for checkout at Library West. Unlike the netbooks, which have a two-hour circulation time and must stay within the library, the iPads will be allowed out of library doors. Diane Bruxvoort, the senior associate dean for scholarly resources and research services, said the library hasnt decided how long students will be able to check out the iPads. She said the overdue policy has also not been decided yet, but it will be similar to the netbook overdue charge system. The netbook program has a $10 charge for every hour it is overdue. After 10 hours, it is considered lost, and users must pay a $2,000 replacement fee, according to the library website. iPads to become available for checkout in Spring SHELBY WEBBAlligator Staff Writer almost anything.

THE BOOK NOOK WILL OPEN ON DEC. 7. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterIn the days of instant downloads and a bound book. Beebe, the owner of Video Rodeo, at 1119 W. University Ave., will celebrate his stores eighth birthday with the unveiling of the Book Nook, a micro-store for used books. The opening will be at Video Rodeo on Dec. 7. It seems like a good time to go in the other direction, Beebe said. Its a different viewing from reading books on a page. Video Rodeo, an independent DVD and Blu-ray rental store, will open the Book Nook in the front of the store near the register. With 32 feet of shelving, Beebe said there are about 500 books so far, and theres room for more. Customers will soon be able to trade used books for ones on the shelf. In the Spring, a friend approached Beebe with the idea to open a bookstore in downtown Gainesville. After the pair looked over the expenses, which racked up to $1,500 a month, Beebe thought the idea wasnt possible. Beebe said he was inspired to have a used book corner in his store after visiting an English-language bookstore in Berlin while he was teaching in the summer. said. Beebe began to think of having a small, used bookstore in his store because the real estate was paid and the store was staffed. When his friend became too busy, Beebe started stocking books. He began collecting titles about three months ago. Many are donations from friends, including Beebes colleagues in the UFs English department. Padgett Powell, a UF creative writing professor, is donating a few books he wrote to Beebes Book Nook. We can always use a bookstore, particuBeebe said hes not in this venture to make money. Hes just in it for the books.

On Saturday, the competing members will show it at the Florida Collegiate Boxing Conference in Tallahassee. About 2,000 people are expected to attend the conference this weekend. UF is one of seven schools competing and will send four UF students Antonio Benitez, Hunter Clonts, Nico Sanchez and Robbie Young and one Santa Fe College student, Cornelius White.

ANDREA CARROZAlligator Contributing WriterWhen it comes to LGBTQ treatment, Floridas cities show a full The Human Rights Campaign, a civil rights organization, pubity Index on Tuesday. The study evaluates city laws and policies related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, said Jeremy the Human Rights Campaign. Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Tallahassee and Jacksonville were among the 11 Florida cities sur veyed. Of those, Orlando did the best, and Jacksonville did the worst. Orlando scored 77 out of 100 points. Miami came in second with 72 points. Miami Shores and Jacksonville came in last, with 34 and 15 points, respectively. The study focused on whether a city has a law that prohibits discrimination against employees on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. It also looked at laws that apply to private-sector employers that prohibit discrimination, he said. The study surveyed 137 cities around the country. The selected cities included the 50 state capitals, the 50 largest cities by population and 75 additional cities based on size. and 25 small cities with the highest proportion of same-sex couples were picked by the campaign based on the 2010 census data, Pittman said. Eleven cities in the U.S., including Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle, New York City and Philadelphia, received the full 100 points. Three cities received zero points: Montgomery, Ala., Frankfort, Ky., and Jefferson City, Mo. I think the results show us that theres been tremendous work done at the municipal level all across the country to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender citizens and residents, Pittman said. But theres still work to be done. The city of Gainesville was not included in this years Municipal didnt cover every city in the U.S. Theres been a lot of work done in Gainesville on LGBT to highlight the good work thats been done there, he said. Terry Fleming, co-president of the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida, said the scores for the cities in Florida were predictable. If Gainesville were on the list, he said, Im sure it would rate very high. Equality index ranks Orlando, Miami as best Florida cities for LGBTQ rights Paul Ramey

Thursdays question: Will you eat at the new Red Robin?50% YES 50% NOWe should form a society built on loveFor many of us, myself included, this semester has been probably one of the most stressful times of our lives. For incoming freshmen, the coursework is often much more rigorous than they initially expected. For sophomores and juniors, doing well enough to simply stay in school can sometimes be a day-to-day odyssey. For seniors, the need to keep their grades up in their last year tempers the excitement about graduation. For graduate students, balancing the often obscene course load with research, teaching, work, families and whatever sliver of a social life they may still manage to have can feel too overwhelming to bear. We can add world events that the media forces us to keep in mind every day to all of this, and it becomes no wonder that life can be a struggle. I have literally never experienced a more stressful time in my almost 24 years. In the course of four months, which myself to near insanity managing my coursework, my assistantship and my relationships. Before this semester began, the last thing I expected or Then, in what seemed like almost the same short amount of time, that relationship crashed and burned a few weeks ago. In short, this hasnt been an easy few months. Luckily, most of you probably havent felt as overwhelmed as others. This semester was probably a breeze for many of you. If thats the case, cherish it! Its good to start an academic year on a positive note. But no matter how your semester has gone or how you expect the next one to go, its important to remember that love will always be on your side. Im not referring simply to romantic love as you might imagine, Im telling romantic love to go eff itself for a little while. What I am referring to is the need to see beauty in everyday life and in people no matter how youre feeling or what youre going through. Of course, this is frequently easier said than done. Personally, Ive been having trouble seeing this beauty on a day-to-day basis for a while now. But I always remember its there. And I make a point to force myself to recognize it, no matter how blurry it seems to be. Obviously, Im extremely fascinated by politics. I think we, as citizens of a nation, have a responsibility to be informed and participate in the functions that make our society operate. Of course and thank goodness theres more to our society than government, economics and politics. However, no matter how much we may try to distance ourselves from these institutions, they are omnipresent aspects of our lives that we should recognize and engage with as much as we can. Because of the importance of these institutions, we should try as citizens to push them in directions that emphasize love. I know this sounds like a lofty, idealistic and abstract notion. But I believe the politics I and many others stand for are those that emphasize love toward others. Its why we push for peace and equality. In a nutshell, we need to ensure our society is built on love. In a world with so much stress, grief, hatred, anger, war, confusion and loss, this idea clearly can become a dead letter. It becomes lost in abstraction and generalization. But after a year and semester such as this, I hope many of you agree with me that its never been more important to Moiss Reyes is a journalism grad student at UF. His column appears on Fridays.

This was symptomatic of Kesls energetic personality. Though his energy was focused when he was working, Tilton said Kesl would practically bounce off the walls. When Kesl was in his 60s, he used to ride his bike 12 miles one-way to Tiltons studio. He had the energy of someone in his 20s, Tilton said. I couldnt keep up with him, and Im 18 years younger than he is. Kesl shared his energy and enthusiasm with his UF and Santa Fe College students during his time as an art professor. Richard Heipp, director of UFs school of art and art history, said though Kesl was aging, he rarely missed an art exhibition or showing. At 86, he certainly hadnt slowed down, Heipp said. He was also a very talented musician. He had a Louis Armstrong kind of voice. Heipp said Kesl was a staple of the Gainesville art scene, appearing at almost every art showing and gallery opening in Alachua County. Kesl seemed to be in his element at art shows, Heipp said. Tilton said Kesl would talk to anyone within earshot and often walk away with a new friend. He would talk to you like he was your best friend, Tilton said, but he didnt know your name. His friendliness earned him the distinction as a Gainesville art icon and won him many friends, like Satchel Raye, the owner of Satchels Pizza. Raye will display some of Kesls work alongside his own at Satchels Pizza from Tuesday until Jan. 2. Itll be fun to put his stuff up, Raye said. But itll be hard to think about him and realize that hes gone. Contact Shelby Webb at swebb@alligator.org. Library West Chair Patrick Reakes said he expects the tablets to get heavy use. The netbook checkout program is constantly in circulation, Bruxvoort said. She said the netbooks each get checked out about 100 times a day. For the iPad loaning program, once the iPad is returned, the recharging cart will sweep all personal information off it. An iPad loaning program was an initiative brought to UF Information Technology by Student Government. The program is funded by the technology fee, which each student has to pay per credit hour. About $1 million from the total fee goes toward technology grants each year, Allen said. An advisory committee consisting of students, UF IT representatives and faculty chose which projects to fund. The iPad program was funded from the leftover money of another project that didnt use all of its funds. It cost about $25,000, Allen said. Its really good use of that money because its going back to something the students use, Reakes said. He said iPad rental programs are something other libraries have started to do.

LOCAL KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing WriterYoung athletes will have the chance to shine at Alachua Countys Rooted on by UF cheerleaders, Olympic torchbearer Jillian Roberts and the mayor of Gainesville, disabled preschooland elementaryaged children will perform athletics including running, jumping and throwing, said event coordinator Krista Vandenborne. The Special Olympics will take place at St. Francis Catholic High School, 4100 NW 115th St., from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. The program is being hosted by Balance 180, an organization founded this year by two UF professors. Vandenborne, the chairwoman of UFs Department of Physical Therapy, is among the professors who helped found Balance 180. She said the young athletes ages 2 through 7 with disabilities ranging from Down syndrome to cerebral palsy have been preparing for the event all semester with training sessions. At the bi-weekly practices, children cycled through different stations set up inside a gym equipped with exercise mats, balls and other tools to work on basic skills like balance. They learn how to jump, how to use a racket, how to kick a ball, Vandenborne said. We teach them motor skills but also work on cognitive components. Theres lots of each other on. She said combining counting, shapes and spatial concepts like under and over with physical therapy exercises strengthens the childrens minds and bodies at the same time. Vandenborne said the athletes inspire her with their resolve and spirit. She said one in particular, 7-year-old Zavion, stood out in her mind. Hes in a wheelchair, she said. Hes one of those bright, shiny kids. He loves to dance. After practice, Vandenborne said, the children love to dance to Gangnam Style. Two volunteers held Zavion up so he could stand beside his wheelchair and groove to the music. wide program has been offered in Alachua County, and VandenGainesville. I think were a perfect town to do it, she said. Sports are a big deal in Gainesville. A lot of times the ways we socialize are through sports, and its the same for children with disabilities. Sijun Li, a 20-year-old public relations junior who has been doing advertising for the event, said assisting with the Special Olympics has been satisfying. Its really rewarding to know the kids are going to have such an amazing event to showcase all the hard work theyve put into the training sessions, she said. They have a lot of talent to show.He was a staple of the citys art scene OBIT, from page 1 IPAD, from page 1It cost about $25,000

KATHRYN VARNAlligator WriterNewell Hall could provide students with relief from crowded librar ies if UFs Board of Trustees approves a proposal for the buildings renovation at its meeting next week. The measure would transform Newell into a bookless study center with digital resources and areas for students to plug in laptops, UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said. Newell, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is one of UFs original buildings that hasnt been updated, Sikes said. The renovation project was introduced in 2009 but was delayed due to lack of funding. Newell stands across Buckman Drive from Turlington Hall and was previously home to the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, which vacated due to the facilitys old age. This will be a perfect retroversion for one of the campus original buildings, she said, adding that the histor ical nature of the hall would be preserved in the proposed renovation. The proposed funding is a result of leftover money from the Reitz Union renovation and expansion project, which comes from the Capital Improvement Trust Fund that students pay in tuition, said Student Body President Tj Villamil. The $2-per-credit-hour fee raised $13 million more than the $20 million needed for the Reitz Union project. nonacademic buildings on campus, Villamil said. For example, the money has been previously used to remake the Southwest Recreation Center. Villamil said that according to the 2011 UF Student Experience in the Research University Survey, students cited more study space as the single, most important thing that the university could do to improve their undergraduate experiences. The survey, which is administered to undergraduates, had a 63 percent response rate, according to survey results. Library crowding is an issue, espeWitt, a forestry and economics junior. Witt, 20, sat at one of the few open tables at Library West on Wednesday. She usually opts for the Levin College of Law Library because of overcrowding. it to come here sometimes, she said. Villamil said there will be a student engagement process in the Spring, but he believes students are already supportive of the proposed renovation. I think its incredible that were bringing one of the most historical buildings on campus to the 21st century, he said, that can be used with students in years to come.

ZACHARY PETERSONAlligator Contributing WriterA sketch comedy troupe of UF students and alumni will put on its original, full-length show Generation 15 Presents: Risky Business this weekend. Generation Sketch Comedy has been prepar ing since early September for the free events, which are scheduled for 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday in Reitz Union, Room 285 and Room 282, respectively. The troupe will perform about 30 sketches at each show, said director and 21-year-old advertising senior Dan LeVine. We do this because we love to entertain and make people laugh, he said. All we need are people to come out and laugh at us. The events Facebook page has more than 100 people attending. Larissa Scott, a 19-yearold telecommunication sophomore, said she was interested in the shows Saturday Night Live-like format. Generations 13-member team comprises a mix of undergraduate students and alumni, and its this combination that creates a unique comedic dynamic, LeVine said. Theres all sorts of experience and talent on the team, he said. Together, the eclectic group brainstormed Risky Business as its show title. We wanted something catchy, interesting. It also had to make sense, LeVine said. While people should not expect a show explicitly about Risky Business, we want people to leave and think, Oh, now I get it.UF comedy troupe to bring the laughsThe board meets Dec. 6 and 7

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 AT&T CAME IN LAST PLACE. MARISA ROSSAlligator Contributing WriterOut of four major U.S. cellphone service providers, Verizon was ranked the highest of its competitors in a mobile carrier satisfaction sur vey. The results from the Consumer Reports National Resource Centers 63,253-person survey remained the same as last year: Verizon stayed in the lead, Sprint and T-Mobile followed behind at second and third and AT&T held its last-place position. The release also said no-contract plans, or prepaid phones, save customers about $20 a month. Richard Lutz, a UF marketing professor, said while this may be true, phones without the commitment of contracts have limits to heavy data users. I think people are looking for price and want to get the best deal, but the most important thing is reliability, he said. You want it to work. Verizon has the highest-rated voice and data quality of the carriers, but AT&Ts LTE, or Long Term Evolution, network is considered the best, the release said. C.J. Wittus, a manager of Best Buy Mobile, said Verizon has the largest amount of coverage everywhere for 4G LTE, but AT&T provides better service in certain areas due to its more widespread 4G network. Wittus, a 20-year-old UF criminology junior, agreed with the reports claim that Verizon is the best, but he said AT&T deserves more credit. Wittus said the companys biggest pitfall is customer service. From personal experience, they sound disinterested, he said. But theyll change their attitude toward new customers or if you say youll leave. KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing WriterSince the Porters Community Farm opened in August, the downtown vacant-lot-turnedgarden has received a collection of in-kind donations: a lawn mower, a weed-whacker and ir rigation supplies. But on Thursday, it received a gift that will keep giving about 22 potted fruit trees. Chestnut Hill Nursery contributed $500 worth of apple, granate saplings, as well as blueberry and blackberry bushes. The Porters Community Farm is located in a low-income area where the annual household income is about $13,000, compared with Gainesvilles average household income of about $27,000, according to a press release. Its an area that has historically been under served, said Travis Mitchell, the farm project manager. The trees will be planted next week on the farm property, Mitchell said. Most of the produce will go to local charities, such as St. Francis House, to provide a reliable source of fresh food. Gainesville community members can help plant the trees Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the garden, 518 SW Third St. Heather Blake, a Chestnut Hill Nursery sales representative, said the plants were grown in the town of Alachua and are 1 to 3 years old. She said it will take another year for most of them to produce fruit once planted permanently. I know a lot of local gardeners who donate fresh produce when they have it, Mitchell said. I dont know anyone lodo that. Blake said fruit trees seemed to be the ideal way to help the farm because they produce great results with little input. A lot of projects lack the volunteer hours to keep them going, whereas with fruit trees and berries, once you get the initial planting and irrigation installed, theres minimal maintenance, she said. Blake said she is optimistic about the impact increased access to fresh fruits can have on low-income Gainesville families. Theres a real need for especially children, but also adults in the community, to have nutritional foods available to them, she said. Many kids these days dont have the experience of having fresh fruits most of its canned. We wanted them to experience planting a tree and eating the fruit. I dont know anyone mission is to do that.

The Gainesville Pet Rescue informed students about fostering and adopting pets. HALEY STRACHERAlligator Contributing WriterLibrary Wests electronic bookcases look like a trap from an Indiana Jones movie set. However, most UF students arent as fear less as American icon Harrison Ford. through the bookcases at Library West are concerned that they will get stuck, squished or smashed in between them. Stephanie Moses was scared she would get stuck in the bookcases that towered over her. You dont usually check for someone, said Moses, an 18-year-old biology freshman, Moses said she was scared to go in and out of the aisles, and it took a few times moving the cases before she got used to them. The contraption is all in the name of saving space. The metal cases sit side-by-side like a set of dominos, and theyre so close that the shelves from one case touch the shelves of the other. The electronic cases are installed into the ground, and each case moves to the right or left after a button is pressed. This creates a walkway in between so people can search through the shelves. Only a few aisles can be created at once because they are so compressed. Library visitors often move multiple cases to get the space between one shelf and another open. Some have gotten hurt because they werent paying attention. Chris Perez, 19, a book stacks personnel at Library West, said his boss saw a girl panic and run down the bookcases as they closed in on her more than a year ago. She scratched her arms on the corners of the books, he said. People can get stuck, but no one can get seriously hurt, the industrial and systems engineering sophomore added. Warning stickers, meant to remind visitors to check the aisle before pressing the button, were tacked onto the ends of the cases during Spring 2012. A warning sound goes off every time a case begins to move. Perez said the beep is loud and highpitched, but people wearing headphones may not hear anything. There are four motion sensors on each case two at each end. Perez said the girl was near the middle of the aisle as it was closing. The electronic cases at Library West were eral times, said Edward Hart, technician at the Legal Information Center at UF. It takes about six seconds to calmly walk from the middle of the aisle to one of the ends. The bookcase closes about 15 seconds after the button is pressed. Theres plenty of time to get out, Perez said.Students fret over getting trapped in stacks at Library West JENNA LYONSAlligator Contributing WriterHamlet has a new question: To tweet or not to tweet? Twitter literature is taking over the social media site as authors across the globe contribute to the started Wednesday. The virtual festival, which ends Sunday, features about 30 authors ters blog post for the event. Selections for the event range from tweets of Shakespeare lines to a retelling of 100 Greek myths in 100 tweets. It also features original stories such as a love affair between a teenage girl and a Sasquatch. R. Brandon Kershner, a UF English professor, said the event sounds silly. He said the 140-character limit doesnt leave space for proper idea development. It seems like a particularly he said. Dave Carlson, executive director of UFs Center for Media Innovation and Research, said the challenges offered by Twitters character limit could actually improve writing by encouraging concision. Anything that encourages people to write helps writing, or at least can help writing, he said. Twitter encouraged all users to get involved and create their own twitterbooks account will highlight a select number of stories throughout the festival. ELLEN VILLAFUERTEAlligator Contributing Writer Clinical Quality and Patient Safety at Shands at UF, the UF Academic Health Center, won second place and $15,000 in the Reporting Patient Safety Events Challenge this month. We were very excited about how the results turned out, said Linda Allen, manager of the quality system department and team leader of the challenge. It reinforces the fact that we are on the cutting edge of performance improvement when it comes to reporting adverse events. The Houston team KBCoreSM won, according to a press release. Shands at UF teamed up with International Development, Inc., which is a software developer specializing risk management. The contest had 36 teams come up with an online application that would make it easier to report adverse events or medical errors that could possibly hurt a patient. For example, if someone falls, we record it and are later able to identify the risk of falling and tell the staff how this can be improved, said Randy Harmatz, chief quality Shands and IDinc created an application that allows a staff member to easily record incidents. The system is designed to receive the infor mation inputted and send alerts to people who need to know. The concept was to create a revolution from the system that Shands currently uses and upgrade it to meet the necessary requirements, said IDinc CEO Didier Salem. I am very pleased and proud of our accomplishments and with the cooperation received from Shands. Allen said this recording of infor mation is already done at the hospital level, but there is currently no standardized way of doing so. This is a step into the right direction to improving health care nationally, she said.Any hospital was eligible for the challengeC AMPUS People can get stuck, but no one can get seriously hurt.Chris PerezLibrary West employee

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2012 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Forward Jennifer George, Floridas best player the past two seasons, struggled against Michigan last year. See story, page 19. UF Lands Verbal CommitFour-star safety Marcell Harris verbally committed to Florida on Thursday morning. The Orlando Dr. Phillips High prospect makes UFs 2013 recruiting haul ESPNs top-ranked class.alligatorSports.orgCheck out our website this weekend for coverage of the Gators volleyball, womens basketball and swimming and diving teams. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator WriterFor the second time in school history, the Gators enter the NCAA Tournament with the Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, Freshman of the Year and Coach of the Year. However, 14th overall seed Florida (25-4, 19-1), which plays Tulsa (26-9, 14-2 Confer ence USA) tonight at 7:30 in the OConnell Center, would not be where it is today if not for its unsung heroes, coach Mary Wise said. Wise, who has led Florida to 22 straight NCAA Tournament appearances, said setter Taylor Brauneis and libero Taylor Unroe have been instrumental in doing the grunt work for their grind-it-out team. It would be like a football team where at some point you have got to recognize the line and the quarterback, Wise said. Brauneis, a junior transfer from Louisville, has taken the role of play caller for Florida. She led the SEC in assists with 1,141. Her average of 11.64 assists per set is 12th-best in the nation. The addition of Brauneis to the Gators 5-1 offense has given SEC Player of the Year Chloe Mann and SEC Freshman of the Year Ziva Recek prime opportunities for kills, Wise said. She just has a high volleyball IQ, and she plays the game (in) what looks to be with little effort as the ball comes out of her hands in such a killable way, Wise said. Shes the quarterback. She puts up very catchable passes. As our quarterback, she puts up very killable sets. Mann, who has been at the receiving end of many of Brauneis passes, said her setter ment while also becoming one of the biggest components to Floridas winning formula. LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterBilly Donovan wanted to send Patric Young a message. Young heard him loud and clear. Feb. 2, Young was a force in No. 7 Floridas 8249 win against Marquette on Thursday in the OConnell Center. The junior center scored 10 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, notched three blocks and tallied three assists in a season-low 22 minutes. He just told me that hes going to punish me for the game and teach me a lesson, Young Citing Youngs disruptive attitude, Donovan Scottie Wilbekin stepped into the lineup at son. Donovan demoted Young to Floridas second team during Wednesdays practice. Young checked into the game at the 15:19 I feel like my job as a coach is to bring out the best in Patric Young as a player, Donovan said. Against a deep and physical Marquette squad, Florida dove for balls, crashed the boards, drew charges and pinned layups. The nations No. 2 scoring defense hustled. Florida (6-0) held Marquette (5-2) to 41.2 per cent shooting. We were really on our defense [Thursday night], because offensively, youre not always going to make shots, junior forward Will Yeg-We here at alligatorSports Brand Picks Column werent nancial department to begin with. Then we turned into a bunch of degenerates and bought way too many Powerball tickets on Wednesday night. Did we win the lottery? No. Will we be living like homeless people on our road trip to Floridas bowl game in New Orleans, one of the most fun cities in America? Yes. Anyone want to spare these sports reporters some pocket change so they can experience hand grenades for the This week, Josh Jurnovoy and Adam Pincus debate the Pac-12 Championship Game between Stanford and UCLA. Now, onto the picks! UCLA (+9) will punch its lottery ticket against Stanford because... Beating a team in consecutive weeks is hard, and the Bruins get another shot after losing at home last week. In a Pac12 title matchup more surprising than winning Powerball, UCLA rides running back Johnathan Franklin to a win.-ADAM PINCUSThe Cardinal (-9) will scratch off a win against the Bruins because Stanford has hit the jackpot before with Andrew Luck. This season, it struck gold on the other side of the ball with its rush defense, which ranks No. 1 in the nation.

The freshman guard scored a team-high 17 points and I dont really know when I started feeling it, Frazier said. I kept shooting when I was open. My teammates did a great job of feeding me, and shots just went down. Yeguete and Casey Prather each chipped in 11 points for the Gators. Senior guard Kenny Boynton, Floridas leading scorer with 16.2 points per game before Thursdays contest, had a quiet night offensively, scoring six points on 2-of-11 shooting. The contest was a rematch of last years Sweet 16. The Gators defeated the Golden Eagles 68-58 in that game to advance to the Elite Eight.

Unlike the netbooks, which have a two-hour circulation time and must stay within the library, the iPads will be allowed out of library doors. Diane Bruxvoort, the senior associate dean for scholarly resources and research services, said the library hasnt decided how long students will be able to check out the iPads. She said the overdue policy has also not been decided yet, but it will be similar to the netbook overdue charge system. The netbook program has a $10 charge for every hour it is overdue.

THE BOOK NOOK WILL OPEN ON DEC. 7. COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator Contributing WriterIn the days of instant downloads and a bound book. Beebe, the owner of Video Rodeo, at 1119 W.

It seems like a good time to go in the other direction, Beebe said. Its a different viewing from reading books on a page. Video Rodeo, an independent DVD and Blu-ray rental store, will open the Book Nook in the front of the store near the register. With 32 feet of shelving, Beebe said there are about 500 books so far, and theres room for more. Customers will soon be able to trade used books for ones on the shelf. In the Spring, a friend approached Beebe with the idea to open a bookstore in downtown Gainesville. After the pair looked over the expenses, which racked up to $1,500 a month, Beebe thought the idea wasnt possible. Beebe said he was inspired to have a used book corner in his store after visiting an English-language bookstore in Berlin while he was teaching in the summer. said.

ANDREA CARROZAlligator Contributing WriterWhen it comes to LGBTQ treatment, Floridas cities show a full The Human Rights Campaign, a civil rights organization, pubity Index on Tuesday. The study evaluates city laws and policies related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, said Jeremy the Human Rights Campaign. Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Tallahassee and Jacksonville were among the 11 Florida cities sur veyed. Of those, Orlando did the best, and Jacksonville did the worst. Orlando scored 77 out of 100 points. Miami came in second with 72 points. Miami Shores and Jacksonville came in last, with 34 and 15 points, respectively. The study focused on whether a city has a law that prohibits discrimination against employees on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. It also looked at laws that apply to private-sector employers that prohibit discrimination, he said. The study surveyed 137 cities around the country. The selected cities included the 50 state capitals, the 50 largest cities by population and 75 additional cities based on size. and 25 small cities with the highest proportion of same-sex couples were picked by the campaign based on the 2010 census data, Pittman said. Eleven cities in the U.S., including Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle, New York City and Philadelphia, received the full 100 points. Three cities received zero points: Montgomery, Ala., Frankfort, Ky., and Jefferson City, Mo. I think the results show us that theres been tremendous work done at the municipal level all across the country to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender citizens and residents, Pittman said. But theres still work to be done. The city of Gainesville was not included in this years Municipal didnt cover every city in the U.S. Theres been a lot of work done in Gainesville on LGBT to highlight the good work thats been done there, he said. Terry Fleming, co-president of the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida, said the scores for the cities in Florida were predictable. If Gainesville were on the list, he said, Im sure it would rate very high. Equality index ranks Orlando, Miami as best Florida cities for LGBTQ rights Paul Ramey

Thursdays question: Will you eat at the new Red Robin?50% YES 50% NOWe should form a society built on loveFor many of us, myself included, this semester has been probably one of the most stressful times of our lives. For incoming freshmen, the coursework is often much more rigorous than they initially expected. For sophomores and juniors, doing well enough to simply stay in school can sometimes be a day-to-day odyssey. For seniors, the need to keep their grades up in their last year tempers the excitement about graduation. For graduate students, balancing the often obscene course load with research, teaching, work, families and whatever sliver of a social life they may still manage to have can feel too overwhelming to bear. We can add world events that the media forces us to keep in mind every day to all of this, and it becomes no wonder that life can be a struggle. I have literally never experienced a more stressful time in my almost 24 years. In the course of four months, which myself to near insanity managing my coursework, my assistantship and my relationships. Before this semester began, the last thing I expected or Then, in what seemed like almost the same short amount of time, that relationship crashed and burned a few weeks ago. In short, this hasnt been an easy few months. Luckily, most of you probably havent felt as overwhelmed as others. This semester was probably a breeze for many of you. If thats the case, cherish it! Its good to start an academic year on a positive note. But no matter how your semester has gone or how you expect the next one to go, its important to remember that love will always be on your side. Im not referring simply to romantic love as you might imagine, Im telling romantic love to go eff itself for a little while. What I am referring to is the need to see beauty in everyday life and in people no matter how youre feeling or what youre going through. Of course, this is frequently easier said than done. Personally, Ive been having trouble seeing this beauty on a day-to-day basis for a while now. But I always remember its there. And I make a point to force myself to recognize it, no matter how blurry it seems to be. Obviously, Im extremely fascinated by politics. I think we, as citizens of a nation, have a responsibility to be informed and participate in the functions that make our society operate. Of course and thank goodness theres more to our society than government, economics and politics. However, no matter how much we may try to distance ourselves from these institutions, they are omnipresent aspects of our lives that we should recognize and engage with as much as we can. Because of the importance of these institutions, we should try as citizens to push them in directions that emphasize love. I know this sounds like a lofty, idealistic and abstract notion. But I believe the politics I and many others stand for are those that emphasize love toward others. Its why we push for peace and equality. In a nutshell, we need to ensure our society is built on love. In a world with so much stress, grief, hatred, anger, war, confusion and loss, this idea clearly can become a dead letter. It becomes lost in abstraction and generalization.

This was symptomatic of Kesls energetic personality. Though his energy was focused when he was working, Tilton said Kesl would practically bounce off the walls. When Kesl was in his 60s, he used to ride his bike 12 miles one-way to Tiltons studio. He had the energy of someone in his 20s, Tilton said. I couldnt keep up with him, and Im 18 years younger than he is. Kesl shared his energy and enthusiasm with his UF and Santa Fe College students during his time as an art professor. Richard Heipp, director of UFs school of art and art history, said though Kesl was aging, he rarely missed an art exhibition or showing. At 86, he certainly hadnt slowed down, Heipp said. He was also a very talented musician. He had a Louis Armstrong kind of voice. Heipp said Kesl was a staple of the Gainesville art scene, appearing at almost every art showing and gallery opening in Alachua County. Kesl seemed to be in his element at art shows, Heipp said. Tilton said Kesl would talk to anyone within earshot and often walk away with a new friend. He would talk to you like he was your best friend, Tilton said, but he didnt know your name. His friendliness earned him the distinction as a Gainesville art icon and won him many friends, like Satchel Raye, the owner of Satchels Pizza. Raye will display some of Kesls work alongside his own at Satchels Pizza from Tuesday until Jan. 2. Itll be fun to put his stuff up, Raye said. But itll be hard to think about him and realize that hes gone. Contact Shelby Webb at swebb@alligator.org. Library West Chair Patrick Reakes said he expects the tablets to get heavy use. The netbook checkout program is constantly in circulation, Bruxvoort said. She said the netbooks each get checked out about 100 times a day. For the iPad loaning program, once the iPad is returned, the recharging cart will sweep all personal information off it. An iPad loaning program was an initiative brought to UF Information Technology by Student Government. The program is funded by the technology fee, which each student has to pay per credit hour. About $1 million from the total fee goes toward technology grants each year, Allen said. An advisory committee consisting of students, UF IT representatives and faculty chose which projects to fund. The iPad program was funded from the leftover money of another project that didnt use all of its funds. It cost about $25,000, Allen said. Its really good use of that money because its going back to something the students use, Reakes said. He said iPad rental programs are something other libraries have started to do. The Thomas Cooper Library at the University of South Carolina loans iPads out to students for three days They have 20 iPads and as of press time, one was available, according to the universitys library website. Student Senate President Christina Bonarrigo said this was something UF students wanted. I think its going to be a huge success on our campus, she said.

LOCAL KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing WriterYoung athletes will have the chance to shine at Alachua Countys Rooted on by UF cheerleaders, Olympic torchbearer Jillian Roberts and the mayor of Gainesville, disabled preschooland elementaryaged children will perform athletics including running, jumping and throwing, said event coordinator Krista Vandenborne. The Special Olympics will take place at St. Francis Catholic High School, 4100 NW 115th St., from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. The program is being hosted by Balance 180, an organization founded this year by two UF professors. Vandenborne, the chairwoman of UFs Department of Physical Therapy, is among the professors who helped found Balance 180. She said the young athletes ages 2 through 7 with disabilities ranging from Down syndrome to cerebral palsy have been preparing for the event all semester with training sessions. At the bi-weekly practices, children cycled through different stations set up inside a gym equipped with exercise mats, balls and other tools to work on basic skills like balance. They learn how to jump, how to use a racket, how to kick a ball, Vandenborne said. We teach them motor skills but also work on cognitive components. Theres lots of each other on. She said combining counting, shapes and spatial concepts like under and over with physical therapy exercises strengthens the childrens minds and bodies at the same time. Vandenborne said the athletes inspire her with their resolve and spirit. She said one in particular, 7-year-old Zavion, stood out in her mind. Hes in a wheelchair, she said. Hes one of those bright, shiny kids. He loves to dance. After practice, Vandenborne said, the children love to dance to Gangnam Style. Two volunteers held Zavion up so he could stand beside his wheelchair and groove to the music. wide program has been offered in Alachua County, and VandenGainesville. I think were a perfect town to do it, she said. Sports are a big deal in Gainesville. A lot of times the ways we socialize are through sports, and its the same for children with disabilities. Sijun Li, a 20-year-old public relations junior who has been doing advertising for the event, said assisting with the Special Olympics has been satisfying. Its really rewarding to know the kids are going to have such an amazing event to showcase all the hard work theyve put into the training sessions, she said. They have a lot of talent to show.He was a staple of the citys art scene OBIT, from page 1 IPAD, from page 1It cost about $25,000

KATHRYN VARNAlligator WriterNewell Hall could provide students with relief from crowded librar ies if UFs Board of Trustees approves a proposal for the buildings renovation at its meeting next week. The measure would transform Newell into a bookless study center with digital resources and areas for students to plug in laptops, UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said. Newell, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is one of UFs original buildings that hasnt been updated, Sikes said. The renovation project was introduced in 2009 but was delayed due to lack of funding. Newell stands across Buckman Drive from Turlington Hall and was previously home to the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, which vacated due to the facilitys old age. This will be a perfect retroversion for one of the campus original buildings, she said, adding that the histor ical nature of the hall would be preserved in the proposed renovation. The proposed funding is a result of leftover money from the Reitz Union renovation and expansion project, which comes from the Capital Improvement Trust Fund that students pay in tuition, said Student Body President Tj Villamil. The $2-per-credit-hour fee raised $13 million more than the $20 million needed for the Reitz Union project. nonacademic buildings on campus, Villamil said. For example, the money has been previously used to remake the Southwest Recreation Center. Villamil said that according to the 2011 UF Student Experience in the Research University Survey, students cited more study space as the single, most important thing that the university could do to improve their undergraduate experiences. The survey, which is administered to undergraduates, had a 63 percent response rate, according to survey results. Library crowding is an issue, espeWitt, a forestry and economics junior. Witt, 20, sat at one of the few open tables at Library West on Wednesday. She usually opts for the Levin College of Law Library because of overcrowding. it to come here sometimes, she said. Villamil said there will be a student engagement process in the Spring, but he believes students are already supportive of the proposed renovation. I think its incredible that were bringing one of the most historical buildings on campus to the 21st century, he said, that can be used with students in years to come.

ZACHARY PETERSONAlligator Contributing WriterA sketch comedy troupe of UF students and alumni will put on its original, full-length show Generation 15 Presents: Risky Business this weekend. Generation Sketch Comedy has been prepar ing since early September for the free events, which are scheduled for 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday in Reitz Union, Room 285 and Room 282, respectively. The troupe will perform about 30 sketches at each show, said director and 21-year-old advertising senior Dan LeVine. We do this because we love to entertain and make people laugh, he said. All we need are people to come out and laugh at us. The events Facebook page has more than 100 people attending. Larissa Scott, a 19-yearold telecommunication sophomore, said she was interested in the shows Saturday Night Live-like format. Generations 13-member team comprises a mix of undergraduate students and alumni, and its this combination that creates a unique comedic dynamic, LeVine said. Theres all sorts of experience and talent on the team, he said. Together, the eclectic group brainstormed Risky Business as its show title. We wanted something catchy, interesting. It also had to make sense, LeVine said.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 11 AT&T CAME IN LAST PLACE. MARISA ROSSAlligator Contributing WriterOut of four major U.S. cellphone service providers, Verizon was ranked the highest of its competitors in a mobile carrier satisfaction sur vey. The results from the Consumer Reports National Resource Centers 63,253-person survey remained the same as last year: Verizon stayed in the lead, Sprint and T-Mobile followed behind at second and third and AT&T held its last-place position. The release also said no-contract plans, or prepaid phones, save customers about $20 a month. Richard Lutz, a UF marketing professor, said while this may be true, phones without the commitment of contracts have limits to heavy data users. I think people are looking for price and want to get the best deal, but the most important thing is reliability, he said. You want it to work. Verizon has the highest-rated voice and data quality of the carriers, but AT&Ts LTE, or Long Term Evolution, network is considered the best, the release said. C.J. Wittus, a manager of Best Buy Mobile, said Verizon has the largest amount of coverage everywhere for 4G LTE, but AT&T provides better service in certain areas due to its more widespread 4G network. Wittus, a 20-year-old UF criminology junior, agreed with the reports claim that Verizon is the best, but he said AT&T deserves more credit. Wittus said the companys biggest pitfall is customer service. From personal experience, they sound disinterested, he said. But theyll change their attitude toward new customers or if you say youll leave. KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Contributing WriterSince the Porters Community Farm opened in August, the downtown vacant-lot-turnedgarden has received a collection of in-kind donations: a lawn mower, a weed-whacker and ir rigation supplies. But on Thursday, it received a gift that will keep giving about 22 potted fruit trees. Chestnut Hill Nursery contributed $500 worth of apple, granate saplings, as well as blueberry and blackberry bushes. The Porters Community Farm is located in a low-income area where the annual household income is about $13,000, compared with Gainesvilles average household income of about $27,000, according to a press release. Its an area that has historically been under served, said Travis Mitchell, the farm project manager. The trees will be planted next week on the farm property, Mitchell said. Most of the produce will go to local charities, such as St. Francis House, to provide a reliable source of fresh food. Gainesville community members can help plant the trees Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the garden, 518 SW Third St. Heather Blake, a Chestnut Hill Nursery sales representative, said the plants were grown in the town of Alachua and are 1 to 3 years old. She said it will take another year for most of them to produce fruit once planted permanently. I know a lot of local gardeners who donate fresh produce when they have it, Mitchell said. I dont know anyone lodo that. Blake said fruit trees seemed to be the ideal way to help the farm because they produce great results with little input. A lot of projects lack the volunteer hours to keep them going, whereas with fruit trees and berries, once you get the initial planting and irrigation installed, theres minimal maintenance, she said. Blake said she is optimistic about the impact increased access to fresh fruits can have on low-income Gainesville families. Theres a real need for especially children, but also adults in the community, to have nutritional foods available to them, she said. Many kids these days dont have the experience of having fresh fruits most of its canned. We wanted them to experience planting a tree and eating the fruit. I dont know anyone mission is to do that.

The Gainesville Pet Rescue informed students about fostering and adopting pets. HALEY STRACHERAlligator Contributing WriterLibrary Wests electronic bookcases look like a trap from an Indiana Jones movie set. However, most UF students arent as fear less as American icon Harrison Ford. through the bookcases at Library West are concerned that they will get stuck, squished or smashed in between them. Stephanie Moses was scared she would get stuck in the bookcases that towered over her. You dont usually check for someone, said Moses, an 18-year-old biology freshman, Moses said she was scared to go in and out of the aisles, and it took a few times moving the cases before she got used to them. The contraption is all in the name of saving space. The metal cases sit side-by-side like a set of dominos, and theyre so close that the shelves from one case touch the shelves of the other. The electronic cases are installed into the ground, and each case moves to the right or left after a button is pressed. This creates a walkway in between so people can search through the shelves. Only a few aisles can be created at once because they are so compressed. Library visitors often move multiple cases to get the space between one shelf and another open. Some have gotten hurt because they werent paying attention. Chris Perez, 19, a book stacks personnel at Library West, said his boss saw a girl panic and run down the bookcases as they closed in on her more than a year ago. She scratched her arms on the corners of the books, he said. People can get stuck, but no one can get seriously hurt, the industrial and systems engineering sophomore added. Warning stickers, meant to remind visitors to check the aisle before pressing the button, were tacked onto the ends of the cases during Spring 2012. A warning sound goes off every time a case begins to move. Perez said the beep is loud and highpitched, but people wearing headphones may not hear anything. There are four motion sensors on each case two at each end. Perez said the girl was near the middle of the aisle as it was closing. The electronic cases at Library West were eral times, said Edward Hart, technician at the Legal Information Center at UF. It takes about six seconds to calmly walk from the middle of the aisle to one of the ends. The bookcase closes about 15 seconds after the button is pressed. Theres plenty of time to get out, Perez said.Students fret over getting trapped in stacks at Library West JENNA LYONSAlligator Contributing WriterHamlet has a new question: To tweet or not to tweet?

The virtual festival, which ends Sunday, features about 30 authors ters blog post for the event. Selections for the event range from tweets of Shakespeare lines to a retelling of 100 Greek myths in 100 tweets. It also features original stories such as a love affair between a teenage girl and a Sasquatch. R. Brandon Kershner, a UF English professor, said the event sounds silly. He said the 140-character limit doesnt leave space for proper idea development. It seems like a particularly he said. Dave Carlson, executive director of UFs Center for Media Innovation and Research, said the challenges offered by Twitters character limit could actually improve writing by encouraging concision. Anything that encourages people to write helps writing, or at least can help writing, he said. Twitter encouraged all users to get involved and create their own twitterbooks account will highlight a select number of stories throughout the festival. ELLEN VILLAFUERTEAlligator Contributing Writer Clinical Quality and Patient Safety at Shands at UF, the UF Academic Health Center, won second place and $15,000 in the Reporting Patient Safety Events Challenge this month. We were very excited about how the results turned out, said Linda Allen, manager of the quality system department and team leader of the challenge. It reinforces the fact that we are on the cutting edge of performance improvement when it comes to reporting adverse events. The Houston team KBCoreSM won, according to a press release. Shands at UF teamed up with International Development, Inc., which is a software developer specializing risk management. The contest had 36 teams come up with an online application that would make it easier to report adverse events or medical errors that could possibly hurt a patient. For example, if someone falls, we record it and are later able to identify the risk of falling and tell the staff how this can be improved, said Randy Harmatz, chief quality Shands and IDinc created an application that allows a staff member to easily record incidents. The system is designed to receive the infor mation inputted and send alerts to people who need to know. The concept was to create a revolution from the system that Shands currently uses and upgrade it to meet the necessary requirements, said IDinc CEO Didier Salem. I am very pleased and proud of our accomplishments and with the cooperation received from Shands. Allen said this recording of infor mation is already done at the hospital level, but there is currently no standardized way of doing so. This is a step into the right direction to improving health care nationally, she said.Any hospital was eligible for the challengeCa AMPUsS People can get stuck, but no one can get seriously hurt.Chris PerezLibrary West employee

JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator WriterFor the second time in school history, the Gators enter the NCAA Tournament with the Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, Freshman of the Year and Coach of the Year. However, 14th overall seed Florida (25-4, 19-1), which plays Tulsa (26-9, 14-2 Confer ence USA) tonight at 7:30 in the OConnell Center, would not be where it is today if not for its unsung heroes, coach Mary Wise said. Wise, who has led Florida to 22 straight NCAA Tournament appearances, said setter Taylor Brauneis and libero Taylor Unroe have been instrumental in doing the grunt work for their grind-it-out team. It would be like a football team where at some point you have got to recognize the line and the quarterback, Wise said. Brauneis, a junior transfer from Louisville, has taken the role of play caller for Florida. She led the SEC in assists with 1,141. Her average of 11.64 assists per set is 12th-best in the nation. The addition of Brauneis to the Gators 5-1 offense has given SEC Player of the Year Chloe Mann and SEC Freshman of the Year Ziva Recek prime opportunities for kills, Wise said. She just has a high volleyball IQ, and she plays the game (in) what looks to be with little effort as the ball comes out of her hands in such a killable way, Wise said. Shes the quarterback. She puts up very catchable passes. As our quarterback, she puts up very killable sets. Mann, who has been at the receiving end of many of Brauneis passes, said her setter ment while also becoming one of the biggest components to Floridas winning formula. LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterBilly Donovan wanted to send Patric Young a message. Young heard him loud and clear. Feb. 2, Young was a force in No. 7 Floridas 8249 win against Marquette on Thursday in the OConnell Center. The junior center scored 10 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, notched three blocks and tallied three assists in a season-low 22 minutes. He just told me that hes going to punish me for the game and teach me a lesson, Young Citing Youngs disruptive attitude, Donovan Scottie Wilbekin stepped into the lineup at son. Donovan demoted Young to Floridas second team during Wednesdays practice. Young checked into the game at the 15:19 I feel like my job as a coach is to bring out the best in Patric Young as a player, Donovan said. Against a deep and physical Marquette squad, Florida dove for balls, crashed the boards, drew charges and pinned layups. The nations No. 2 scoring defense hustled. Florida (6-0) held Marquette (5-2) to 41.2 per cent shooting.

In a Pac12 title matchup more surprising than winning Powerball, UCLA rides running back Johnathan Franklin to a win.-ADAM PINCUSThe Cardinal (-9) will scratch off a win against the Bruins because Stanford has hit the jackpot before with Andrew Luck. This season, it struck gold on the other side of the ball with its rush defense, which ranks No. 1 in the nation.

uete said. Coach [Billy Donovan] is really trying to make us guard every time, every single day in practice. We did a really good job staying focused. UF eliminated Marquettes offensive balance. The Golden Eagles came into Thursdays game averaging 76.5 points per game. Aside from guard Vander Blue (20 points), no Golden Eagle scored more than six points. Florida held Mar quettes leading scorer, 6-foot-8, 290-pound forward Davante Gardner, to six points and one rebound. The Gators had balanced scoring, with six players in Guard Michael Frazier II gave UF a boost off the bench. The freshman guard scored a team-high 17 points and I dont really know when I started feeling it, Frazier said. I kept shooting when I was open. My teammates did a great job of feeding me, and shots just went down. Yeguete and Casey Prather each chipped in 11 points for the Gators. Senior guard Kenny Boynton, Floridas leading scorer with 16.2 points per game before Thursdays contest, had a quiet night offensively, scoring six points on 2-of-11 shooting. The contest was a rematch of last years Sweet 16. The Gators defeated the Golden Eagles 68-58 in that game to advance to the Elite Eight. Both teams were both sloppy on offense during the opening minutes. halftime with a 38-24 lead. UF held the Golden Eagles to 37.9 percent shooting in The Gators opened the second half with a 9-0 run to put the contest out of reach. with the Gators. [Marquette is] a good team, but its still November, and theres time to grow and develop, Donovan said. Its a good thing we play these kinds of games, but Im not so sure were that many points better than everybody. Taylor has done a tremendous job handling the pressure of adjusting to a new school, a new system and new teammates, Mann said. assets that weve had this year, and were so grateful for her. Before Brauneis gets the ball to point scorers like Mann and Recek, Unroe has to transfer hard-hit attacks into hittable balls for Brauneis. The sophomore from Muncie, Ind., has anchored the back-line defense with her 4.43 digs per set ence. 3.69 digs per set. Her service aces per set average has improved from .27 last year to .33 this season. For Taylor Unroe, shes on the half of the six rotations, she anchors our servereceive, but the part of her game that has improved so much, especially in the fense, Wise said. The last weekend of the regular season, she put together backto-back really good matches in terms of not just number of digs, but also quality of digs. With the Golden Hurricanes boasting the all-time leading scor er in NCAA history senior Tyler Henderson Wise said Unroe and her defense will have their work of the tournament. Wise is 21-0 in opening-round games during her career at Florida. Thats a pretty tough matchI think our fans are in for a treat to see one of the countrys best, Wise said. In second at 61-43 is The Miami Heralds Matt You hurt my feelings Watts, who got into a spat with a stranger on Facebook and, for once, didnt get the last word in. Its OK, V8KLLR.
