THURSDAY, JANUARY 17, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterIn December 2010, Laura McKeeman wondered aloud to her Zeta Tau Alpha sisters about how she could get money to pay for her Summer class. When her friends suggested that she enter Florida Blue Keys Miss University of Florida Pageant to win some money, McKeeman Nearly two years later, the 24-year-old UF alumna placed in the top 16 as Miss Florida in the Miss America pageant Saturday. I came away with a bunch of great friends, McKeeman said. Im excited to tell my kids and grandkids. McKeeman, who graduated in 2011 with a degree in telecommunication, passed the swimsuit round of the competition but did not advance to the evening-gown round. It was such an honor to be called, she said. It was a total surprise to me. McKeeman began entering pageants as a junior in college. Since Miss UF, she has competed in nine pageants, and she won Miss Florida in July 2012. McKeeman started preparing for the national competition when she won Miss Florida. As a FOX Sports reporter covketball, she said she found herself rehearsing her dance routine while on a conference call with coaches. While she was a student at UF, McKeeman was involved with her Sports Radio 850. UF is the type of school that can truly open doors, no matter where you knock on them, she said. Steve Russell, sports director at WRUF-AM 850, worked with McKHe said he watched Miss America to support his former student. For anyone who wants to make it, shes proof that you can, Russell said. Shes a role model. Mara Abeleda, a 23-year-old The competed in the Miss Florida pageant together. We never felt like we were ever competing against each other, Abeleda said.

CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Staff WriterIn an effort to reduce gunrelated crimes and deaths in the United States, President Barack Obama unveiled several new proposals Wednesday aimed to strengthen gun control laws. The $500 million dollar plan consists of 23 executive measures, which range from closing background check loopholes to increasing access to mental health services. The proposals come about a month after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that left 26 dead in Newtown, Conn. Obama stressed the impor tance of protecting children from gun violence. What we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them, and shield them from harm, and give them the tools they need to grow up and do everything that theyre capable of doing, he said, not just to pur sue their own dreams, but to help build this country. At UF, student political organizations chimed in on Obamas gun control proposals. Katy Melchiorre, a 21-yearold political science and telecommunication senior and UF College Republicans chairwoman, said she supports law-abiding citizens owning guns, and said tragedies, like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary, are not committed by people who follow the law. While the president is focusing on gun regulation, I hope that Congress can focus on the under lying issues behind the tragedy, like our countrys mental health system, because I believe that is where the reform is needed not guns, she said. Rachel McGovern, a 20-yearold political science junior and UF College Democrats vice president, said she agrees with Obamas proposals. Im proud the man I voted stand on this issue, she said. Obama called for Congress to require background checks on every person purchasing a gun. He also proposed to restore a ban on the sale of military-style assault weapons. Obamas plan was met with opposition from critics, including U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL, voiced his support for citizens to bear arms. Rather than sweeping measures that make it harder for responsible, law-abiding citizens to statement, we should focus on the root causes of gun violence and keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.

Obama reveals gun control planDunker is the 12th player arrested under coach Will MuschampIn November, he shouted expletives at for failing to wear a seat belt. on the citation until the following day. Dunker is the 12th football player arrested since Will Muschamp took over for Urban Meyer as Floridas coach in January 2011. Other players ar rested under Muschamp have included Marcus Roberson for underage possession of alcohol, Leon Orr on marijuanarelated charges and A.C. Leonard for domestic battery, according to Alligator archives. More than 30 player arrests occurred during Meyers six-year tenure. A former four-star recruit who attended Boynton Beach High, Dunker redshirted Gators. Muschamp considered putting Dunker in as starting guard after James Wilson, a former Gator offensive lineman, graduated this season. The 6-feet-6-inch offensive guard was a Parade High School All-American and played in the 2011 Under Armour AllAmerica Game. He chose to attend UF instead of Auburn University, Georgia University, University of Alabama and Louisiana State University. A UF Athletic Association spokesman wrote in an email that coach Muschamp is aware of the incident and will address Dunkers arrest during a scheduled news conference Friday.

The JAM, a music bar at 817 W. University Ave., provides live music and welcomes anyone to play music on its stage. We want to foster the musicians and the artists around town, said Blake Briand, 34-year-old co-owner of The JAM. We want everyone come and show their stuff. Briand operates The JAM with co-owners Eddy Arenas, 34, and Veronica Arenas, 31, siblings and UF alumni. The JAM is open from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Satur day. It hosts different theme nights such as jazz nights Monday, reggae Tuesday, world Wednesday and open jam night Thursday. Differ ent local bands play Friday and Saturday. If no bands are booked, the venue hosts a drum circle in its spacious backyard. Its a comfortable environment that opens my mind to music Ive never listened to before, said Margarita Khariton, a 20-year-old chemical engineering junior. The JAM provides a full range of instruments and equipment on the inside stage. There are guitars hanging from the walls, a piano and various types of drums are around the bar. There is a serious lack of good music venues in Gainesville that keep the musician in mind and not just whatever they can make moneywise, Eddy Arenas said. The JAMs philosophy is to create a venue where musicians come back because they have a good time and are treated well. That is important to us, Briand said. We apply that same thing to the audience. We want them to have a good time and leave thinking that it was a good experience. Beer, wine, tea and other hot beverages are featured on the drink menu, including beverages from local brewing companies like Otter & Trout Trading Co Inc., Cigar City Brewing and Farm Boy Produce. Kombucha, a nonalcoholic, fer mented tea that is good for health and digestion, combined with sake compose the signature drink playfully named kombusake, Eddy Arenas said. The JAM is a place for people of all ages, said Kristin Rusoff, a 21-year-old microbiology and cell science senior. It is a fun place to hang out when you get done with downtown, she said. Although there is support from the community, the future of The JAM is uncertain. Unfortunately, there is a looming threat that this is all going to get torn down. Its up in the air right now, Eddy Arenas said. This whole property now belongs to the Innovation Square. The co-owners hope to build a name for themselves, so that, if necessary, they will survive a location change. Until then, were going to ride this place until the wheels fall off, Eddy Arenas said.THURSDAY, JANUARY 17, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/THE_AVENUEJohn McLaughlin / AlligatorGuitars hang on the wall of The JAM, 817 W.

What is astonishing is just how funny, thrilling and completely brilliant an S&M play like the Hippodrome State Theatres Venus in Fur can be. Following in the footsteps of an already phenomenal 40th season, Venus in Fur delivers a truly unforgettable 90 minutes of theater that may prove to be the Hippodromes best production of the year. of Thomas, the writer/director of a new play adaptation of the erotic 19th century novel lady. Then the young, eccentric actress Vanda walks in and gives new meaning to working the casting couch. The late night audition starts innocent enough but quickly spirals out of control, revealing the crazy power and sexual struggle experienced between men and women. Venus in Fur debuted on Broadway in 2011 to mostly unanimous rave reviews, and its debut in Gainesville this past weekend deserves similar accolades. This two-person play features three key performances that warrant a wealth of applause: actors Tim Altmeyer, Lauren Nordvig and director Lauren Caldwell. Theres no denying the cleverness of David Ivess script, but it is the work of the previously mentioned trio of talent, all with ties to UF, that elevated this wholly enjoyable production to inconceivable heights. This is Altmeyers theatrical season. Previously the director of the Hippodromes incredible production of Other Desert Cities, Altmeyer now stands center stage, as he rightly should, playing the complex man at the helm of a sexy and daring new show. His impeccable diction and overall command of the material shined from the very In a role that won Nina Arianda the 2012 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play, Nor dvig gave a performance that is equally wor thy of such a prestigious award. It is highly a young artist like Nordvig who embodies every possible vocal, physical and emotional quirk of her character. To borrow a line from Vanda, Nordvigs a-MAH-zing portrayal of a multi-faceted actress is breathtaking to behold. for all audiences, Caldwells direction was both tasteful and well received as evidenced by the standing ovation at curtain call. The thunder and lightning that intermittently interrupted Vandas audition was nothing compared to the electricity that encapsulated this entire spectacular production.

THURSDAY JANUARY 17, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 17, 2013 ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue WriterIf Lancelot and Guinevere were enlightened thinkers sneaking around behind a kooky King Arthurs back, then A Royal Affair would be a visual storybook of their dangerous affair. Starring Mads Mikkelsen as innovative German doctor Johann Struensee, the affair itself doesnt see screen time until halfthe beautiful Danish scenery and architecture make for a nice view while the audience waits. Alicia Vikander co-stars as Queen Caroline Mathilde, the quietly suffering bride of disturbed King Christian VII of Denmark, played by Mikkel Boe Folsgaard. King Christian, a rambunctious soul who is often in the company of women, was no more in charge than his canine companion in a country ruled by divine right. Fearing his misbehavior, the court calls for a personal physician (Mikkelsen), who quickly wins over the king with a spirited Shakespeare-quoting contest. But as all royal scandals go the queen and the doctor combine their enlightened thoughts Christian. Their dangerous commitment and secret love child ultimately make the teetering regime fall further into darkness. Mikkelsens sturdy expressions mixed with Vikanders soft, questioning gazes make for a believably steamy tryst, and Folsgaards cackling, moody Christian is perfectly clueless to it all. Together, the trio complement each other subtly and effectively. Actor for Folsgaard and Best Screenplay at the Berlin National Film Festival, is similar to other royal representations like The Other Boleyn Girl and Marie Antoinette in regards to its lavish sets. But the focus on char acter sets it apart from its other, more decorative predecessors. A Royal Affair is screening at the Hippodrome starting Friday.

Jillette Johnson and Rachel Rose will join him as opening acts. Allen is an Arkansas-bred singer/songwriter touring North America in support of his sophomore album, Thank You Camellia, which released in May. The Avenue talked to Kris about his upcoming show in Gainesville, his thoughts about being an expectant father and his maturation as a songwriter. Q: Are you excited to play in Gainesville? Have you toured in this area before? A: I dont think Ive done a ton of touring in Florida. Weve done Miami and Tampa a couple of times. But when it comes down to it, I dont think weve done a place like Gainesville. I know Gainesville is a college town, and I love college towns. I really just enjoy going to smaller cities. Q: How has your songwriting and goals as a musician changed from American Idol You Camellia release? A: I think it changed completely. When I came off the show, I was just a baby. I was really new. I felt like I had a lot of talent but hadnt really ushered in that talent that much yet. Over the years, Ive become friends with a lot of musicians and songwriters, and weve toured with a lot of amazing artists. Ive learned so much. Ive learned what it takes to make it in this business, or at least what I think it takes, anyway. It takes a lot of work, a lot of practice trying to get better every day. I feel like Ive done that. the stage with Bruce SpringOctober during the Little Kids A: It was pretty awesome. I think at one point, I was singing in the same mic as Elvis Costello. After the night was over, I was hanging out on stage. I was waiting for Bruce to walk back .... He initiated conversation, which I thought was amazing. I guess he was in the crowd when I sang earlier that night. He said, You did a really, really good job. It was cool to hear something like that from Bruce Springsteen. Q: What are you most excited about by becoming a father? A: I dont really know what to look forward to. I know its going to be a lot of work a lot of diapers, a lot of poop and stuff like that. After getting our dog a couple years ago, Ive fallen in love with him. Hes pretty much like my son. But I know that its going to be even more intense [when] I have a real kid. I just cant wait to grow up with [them] and see what kind of person they become. Q: Any collaborations with A: There are things in the works, but I will keep my secrets. Q: Whats next for you after this tour? A: Ill spend some time with my family for a little bit because Ill be gone so long, but also songwriting and getting back into the studio.Idol winner to perform at High Dive CD GiveawayThe Avenue is giving away a copy of Kris Allens newest album, Thank You, Camellia.

High school is pretty much a danger zone. What if a male senior dated a female freshman, and she didnt even have her period yet? Vice versa, its still gross. Save yourself the trouble, and stick to your own grade. Although people tend to mature in college, no one does in his or still fall through the cracks and probably wont be as mature as they should be for a long time much like those guys from Tennessee who thought alcohol enemas were a good idea. After a certain point in your 20s, age appropriateness is void again. It depends if the maturity are relatively the same. If youre dating someone considerably older or younger and worried about judgmental looks, you are not mature enough to date that person. Dear Friend, Ask your parents what they honestly think of you. These people are your creators. They sugarcoat most of the comments they make about your life choices. Ask them to fully critique you as a human being, not as the monster they gave birth to. Dear Friend, Im going to ignore your confusing question and talk about something important. This overly sensitive side of a woman is her being human. Some people are overly sensitive man or woman. We are led to believe that if a woman is being too sensitive, she is acting like her gender, but if a man is being too sensitive, he is acting like a pussy. This emotion is not a woman thing, its a people thing. someone feels a heavy burden on his or her shoulders and acts too sensitive for you, consider that something may actually be wrong. Show some compassion. JENNIFER HERNANDEZAvenue WriterTarget does it again, with another high-low collaboration. The superstore will team up with luxury fashion designer Prabal Gurung for a collection due in stores Feb. 10. tion was with Issac Mizrahi in 2003, initiating the stores economic, highfashion partnerships with luxury brands including Rodarte, Missoni and Jason Wu. Most of these promotional sales do really well. Jason Wu sold out quickly, and a lot of customers left with several items from the collection, said Brian Jablonski, store team leader for Target on Archer Road. Similar to Jason Wus swift sale last year, Missonis release in 2011 was characterized by long lines, sellcrashed Targets website, according to Time Magazine. However, Gurungs collection ful collaboration with Neiman Mar cus. The 50-piece holiday gift line, which included fashion giants such as Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs and Marchesa, did not sell as much as expected. Critics called the presentation sloppy, and the items cheap and overpriced, leading to what Time Magazine dubbed an epic retail fail. get still carried items from the line at 70 percent off. Fashionista.com reports that the primary reason the collection was such a dud is that most Target shoppers had no idea what it was about or who was involved. I didnt hear about it at all, but I would have shopped the collection, said Yamila Gottig, a 20-yeardidnt know that Target was a carrier for high-fashion clothing. Does this mean that the Prabal Gurung collaboration will be similar Although the designer did have some items in the failed collection, this wont necessarily be true. The fashion world buzzed with interest when Gurungs line was announced in October. In a Target promotional inter view, Gurung said he put a lot of love into the collection literally. all said to be inspired by love and Valentines Day. If they can feel even a little bit of the love that I felt when I was dedone, Gurung said.Target collaborations: Triumph or train wreck? fashion

and ball-handling responsibilities, but coach Billy Donovan still shouts for Junior when he wants to relay a message to the offense. Although Boynton takes a few illadvised threes, his focus on getting the best possible shot has improved. He knows when to attack in transition, and he knows when things need to be slowed down. He knows when to run clock to protect a lead, when to settle the offense to kill off an opponents run and even how to take advantage of the extra possession in end-of-half situations. Even with the added responsibility, hes still turned the ball over less frequently than every Gator except Erik While Boyntons praise as a defensive stopper has dwindled from the heights it reached during his sophomore year, he is still a great on-ball defender who practically never fouls. With Brad Beal gone to the NBA, Boynton has increased his defensive rebound rate by nearly 54 percent from last season. His mark of 3.9 rebounds per game is just .6 fewer than Erik Murphys 4.5 obvious math. All little things, but all valuable. And all signs of a veteran leader with nine NCAA Tournament games under his belt who deserves to be the favorite for SEC Player of the Year. The award has been handed out 22 times in my lifetime (since 1991), and 15 times it has gone to a player from the conferences regular-season champion. The season is still very young, but nobody in the SEC is putting up big enough numbers to buck that trend. And with Florida the prohibitive favorite to take the title top contenders Kentucky and Missouri have already lost Boynton has an excellent shot to claim the award in 2013.

See story, page14. LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer As Florida bullied LSU in Baton Rouge, La., on Saturday, Texas A&Ms Elston Turner was putting on a show against Kentucky in Rupp Arena. In the Aggies 83-71 upset win against the Wildcats in Lexington, Ky., Turner scored a career-best 40 points on 14-of-19 shooting. The 6-foot-5 senior guard drilled 6 of 10 three-pointers, grabbed six rebounds and notched four assists. The home conference loss was Kentucky coach John Caliparis Wildcats. Im surprised that the guy went for 40 (points) against Kentucky, junior center Patric Young said. You wouldnt think anyone could do that at Rupp Arena. After watching Turner gain national attention, No. 10 Florida (12-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) will look to contain him when it travels to Reed Arena in College Station, Texas, to face Texas A&M tonight at 7. Turner leads the Aggies (12-3, 2-0 SEC) with 17.1 points on 13 44.2 percent from three-point range and 79.5 percent from the charity stripe. He can do it a lot of different ways, coach Billy Donovan said. The thing that was so impressive to me about him scoring in the game against Kentucky was when you see a guy score 40 points, the the shot attempts. A guy takes 30 shots and scores 40 points, that is really not a big deal. When you give a good scorer enough attempts at the basket, they are going to score points. The thing that was impressive to me was his number of shots didnt even equal the amount of points he scored. He scored 40 points on 19 shots. To me, that is a sign of a According to KenPom.com, Texas A&M has an adjusted ofis good enough for 47th in the country. cies of 121.2 on offense and 83.2 on defense each rank second in the NCAA. When Florida defeated Texas A&M 84-64 on Dec. 17, 2011, at the Orange Bowl Basketball Classic in Sunrise, Turner scored 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting and made 3 of 5 attempts behind the arc.

UFs defense will be tasked with stopping Texas A&Ms Elston Turner tonight at 7. Florida to be tested by star Texas A&M scoring guardEND OF GREGULATION When discussing Kenny Boynton, fans and onlookers only seem to care about one thing: Is he hot, or is he cold? But boiling his value down to that single question is a mistake, one that neglects everything Boynton does as a distributor, playmaker, defender and rebounder. Instead of rightfully labeling Boynton the frontrunner for Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, critics deem him a streaky shooter and call it a day. Yes, Boyntons streakiness is tough to deny. He made only seven threes in six games before pouring in eight against Yale on Jan. 6. But those who think Boynton is having a poor season shooting the ball need to adjust their expectations. Boynton has hit 35.5 percent of his threes this season. The national average entering play on Wednesday was 33.6 percent. Aside an 18-game sample over which Boynton shot an uncanny 45.8 32.4 percent three-point shooter. Thats just about who he is. With Boyntons game that has pleased coach Billy Donovan in recent is closer to 35 percent. Regardless, what makes Boynton so effective offensively is his ability to score multiple ways. With each season, Boyntons abilhas improved. Hes accumulated 1,782 points, a mark that trails Ronnie Williams UF career record by 308. Assuming 16 regular season games plus another six between the SEC and NCAA tournaments (anything less would be a disappointment), Boynton can match that record with 14 points per game. Hes averaged 13.8 per game this season, so itll be close. All too often, this is where the discussion of Boynton ends. Shooting and scoring. Shooting and scoring. In reality, theres much more to his game. After three years playing alongside Erving Walker, Boynton has become UFs point guard. Junior Scottie Wilbekin has taken on many of the distribution Boynton more than just shooting KATIE AGOSTIN Alligator Staff Writer Junior Ebony Eutsey wasnt happy when coach Mike Holloway suggested she add short sprints to her training routine during the fall semester. But after some convincing, Holloway got through to Eutsey. I didnt used to like sprinting, but since coach Holloway gave me a talk about the more you sprint, the faster you are in the 400 meter and then that carries over into the 200 meter as well, I was like, OK, get your mind right, you need to do this, Eutsey said. I feel very comfortable doing it now. Although Eutsey now enjoys the change in her training, she said the transition wasnt easy. Eutsey, who specializes in the 400m, said shes always struggled with sprinting. Adding 60m sprints to her routine was Its always been so hard for me to really sprint fast like a true sprinter, so it was kind of hard for me to follow through with it, Eutsey said. But then, as time went by, I started to understand that this would help my 400-meter time, so it turned out to be great. ing her races strong thanks to the New training paying off SEE TRACK, PAGE 14 SEE HOOPS, PAGE 16 SEE GREG, PAGE 14 There will be some things from [last years] game (against Texas A&M) that we can look at in terms of philosophy, but their personnel has changed some, just like our personnel has changed some.Billy DonovanUF coach Boynton more than just shooting Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca UF T rac k

from that game that we can look at in terms of philosophy, but their personnel has changed some, just like our personnel has changed some, Donovan said. No opposing player has scored more than 20 points against the Gators in 14 games this season. Florida held Georgias Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting and Florida States Michael Snaer to 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting. Turner will be the next target on UFs list. Well be focused on him, freshman guard Michael Frazier II said. Obviously, hes a big-time scorer for them. When we key on him, we have to force him to take tough twos and not get any open looks.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 17, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterIn December 2010, Laura McKeeman wondered aloud to her Zeta Tau Alpha sisters about how she could get money to pay for her Summer class. When her friends suggested that she enter Florida Blue Keys Miss University of Florida Pageant to win some money, McKeeman Nearly two years later, the 24-year-old UF alumna placed in the top 16 as Miss Florida in the Miss America pageant Saturday. I came away with a bunch of great friends, McKeeman said. Im excited to tell my kids and grandkids. McKeeman, who graduated in 2011 with a degree in telecommunication, passed the swimsuit round of the competition but did not advance to the evening-gown round. It was such an honor to be called, she said. It was a total surprise to me. McKeeman began entering pageants as a junior in college. Since Miss UF, she has competed in nine pageants, and she won Miss Florida in July 2012. McKeeman started preparing for the national competition when she won Miss Florida.

4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 17, 2013 Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffDream CatcherBiology student Pooja Pachigar, 19, clips her dream to the Hello Perfect dream catcher Wednesday afternoon on the Plaza of the Americas. CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Staff WriterIn an effort to reduce gunrelated crimes and deaths in the United States, President Barack Obama unveiled several new proposals Wednesday aimed to strengthen gun control laws. The $500 million dollar plan consists of 23 executive measures, which range from closing background check loopholes to increasing access to mental health services. The proposals come about a month after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that left 26 dead in Newtown, Conn. Obama stressed the impor tance of protecting children from gun violence. What we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them, and shield them from harm, and give them the tools they need to grow up and do everything that theyre capable of doing, he said, not just to pur sue their own dreams, but to help build this country. At UF, student political organizations chimed in on Obamas gun control proposals. Katy Melchiorre, a 21-yearold political science and telecommunication senior and UF College Republicans chairwoman, said she supports law-abiding citizens owning guns, and said tragedies, like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary, are not committed by people who follow the law. While the president is focusing on gun regulation, I hope that Congress can focus on the under lying issues behind the tragedy, like our countrys mental health system, because I believe that is where the reform is needed not guns, she said. Rachel McGovern, a 20-yearold political science junior and UF College Democrats vice president, said she agrees with Obamas proposals. Im proud the man I voted stand on this issue, she said. Obama called for Congress to require background checks on every person purchasing a gun. He also proposed to restore a ban on the sale of military-style assault weapons. Obamas plan was met with opposition from critics, including U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL, voiced his support for citizens to bear arms. Rather than sweeping measures that make it harder for responsible, law-abiding citizens to statement, we should focus on the root causes of gun violence and keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.

Dunker is the 12th football player arrested since Will Muschamp took over for Urban Meyer as Floridas coach in January 2011. Other players ar rested under Muschamp have included Marcus Roberson for underage possession of alcohol, Leon Orr on marijuanarelated charges and A.C. Leonard for domestic battery, according to Alligator archives. More than 30 player arrests occurred during Meyers six-year tenure. A former four-star recruit who attended Boynton Beach High, Dunker redshirted Gators. Muschamp considered putting Dunker in as starting guard after James Wilson, a former Gator offensive lineman, graduated this season. The 6-feet-6-inch offensive guard was a Parade High School All-American and played in the 2011 Under Armour AllAmerica Game. He chose to attend UF instead of Auburn University, Georgia University, University of Alabama and Louisiana State University. A UF Athletic Association spokesman wrote in an email that coach Muschamp is aware of the incident and will address Dunkers arrest during a scheduled news conference Friday.

theAvenue Hot Water Music Ticket Giveaway Winners: Congratulations to our winners, Julia Clithero and Patrick Runfeldt. You can pick up your tickets at will call starting at 8 p.m. Friday.Online Exclusives: The second half of Workaholics season 3 premiered Wednesday night on Comedy Central. Find out what Adam DeVine, creator, writer and star of the show, had to say about it at www.alligator.org/the_AvenueFollow the Avenue on Twitter: @AlligatorAvenue Like us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ theAvenue MEGHAN PRYCEAvenue WriterMost businesses prefer the instruments on display remain untouched, but at The JAM it is a must for musicians to pick up an instrument and show off their talents. The JAM, a music bar at 817 W. University Ave., provides live music and welcomes anyone to play music on its stage. We want to foster the musicians and the artists around town, said Blake Briand, 34-year-old co-owner of The JAM. We want everyone come and show their stuff. Briand operates The JAM with co-owners Eddy Arenas, 34, and Veronica Arenas, 31, siblings and UF alumni. The JAM is open from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Satur day. It hosts different theme nights such as jazz nights Monday, reggae Tuesday, world Wednesday and open jam night Thursday. Differ ent local bands play Friday and Saturday. If no bands are booked, the venue hosts a drum circle in its spacious backyard. Its a comfortable environment that opens my mind to music Ive never listened to before, said Margarita Khariton, a 20-year-old chemical engineering junior. The JAM provides a full range of instruments and equipment on the inside stage. There are guitars hanging from the walls, a piano and various types of drums are around the bar. There is a serious lack of good music venues in Gainesville that keep the musician in mind and not just whatever they can make moneywise, Eddy Arenas said. The JAMs philosophy is to create a venue where musicians come back because they have a good time and are treated well. That is important to us, Briand said. We apply that same thing to the audience. We want them to have a good time and leave thinking that it was a good experience. Beer, wine, tea and other hot beverages are featured on the drink menu, including beverages from local brewing companies like Otter & Trout Trading Co Inc., Cigar City Brewing and Farm Boy Produce. Kombucha, a nonalcoholic, fer mented tea that is good for health and digestion, combined with sake compose the signature drink playfully named kombusake, Eddy Arenas said. The JAM is a place for people of all ages, said Kristin Rusoff, a 21-year-old microbiology and cell science senior. It is a fun place to hang out when you get done with downtown, she said. Although there is support from the community, the future of The JAM is uncertain. Unfortunately, there is a looming threat that this is all going to get torn down. Its up in the air right now, Eddy Arenas said. This whole property now belongs to the Innovation Square. The co-owners hope to build a name for themselves, so that, if necessary, they will survive a location change. Until then, were going to ride this place until the wheels fall off, Eddy Arenas said.THURSDAY, JANUARY 17, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/THE_AVENUEJohn McLaughlin / AlligatorGuitars hang on the wall of The JAM, 817 W.

What is astonishing is just how funny, thrilling and completely brilliant an S&M play like the Hippodrome State Theatres Venus in Fur can be. Following in the footsteps of an already phenomenal 40th season, Venus in Fur delivers a truly unforgettable 90 minutes of theater that may prove to be the Hippodromes best production of the year. of Thomas, the writer/director of a new play adaptation of the erotic 19th century novel lady. Then the young, eccentric actress Vanda walks in and gives new meaning to working the casting couch. The late night audition starts innocent enough but quickly spirals out of control, revealing the crazy power and sexual struggle experienced between men and women. Venus in Fur debuted on Broadway in 2011 to mostly unanimous rave reviews, and its debut in Gainesville this past weekend deserves similar accolades. This two-person play features three key performances that warrant a wealth of applause: actors Tim Altmeyer, Lauren Nordvig and director Lauren Caldwell. Theres no denying the cleverness of David Ivess script, but it is the work of the previously mentioned trio of talent, all with ties to UF, that elevated this wholly enjoyable production to inconceivable heights. This is Altmeyers theatrical season. Previously the director of the Hippodromes incredible production of Other Desert Cities, Altmeyer now stands center stage, as he rightly should, playing the complex man at the helm of a sexy and daring new show. His impeccable diction and overall command of the material shined from the very In a role that won Nina Arianda the 2012 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play, Nor dvig gave a performance that is equally wor thy of such a prestigious award. It is highly a young artist like Nordvig who embodies every possible vocal, physical and emotional quirk of her character. To borrow a line from Vanda, Nordvigs a-MAH-zing portrayal of a multi-faceted actress is breathtaking to behold. for all audiences, Caldwells direction was both tasteful and well received as evidenced by the standing ovation at curtain call. The thunder and lightning that intermittently interrupted Vandas audition was nothing compared to the electricity that encapsulated this entire spectacular production.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 17, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 9 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 17, 2013 ALYSSA HOLCOMBAvenue WriterIf Lancelot and Guinevere were enlightened thinkers sneaking around behind a kooky King Arthurs back, then A Royal Affair would be a visual storybook of their dangerous affair. Starring Mads Mikkelsen as innovative German doctor Johann Struensee, the affair itself doesnt see screen time until halfthe beautiful Danish scenery and architecture make for a nice view while the audience waits. Alicia Vikander co-stars as Queen Caroline Mathilde, the quietly suffering bride of disturbed King Christian VII of Denmark, played by Mikkel Boe Folsgaard. King Christian, a rambunctious soul who is often in the company of women, was no more in charge than his canine companion in a country ruled by divine right. Fearing his misbehavior, the court calls for a personal physician (Mikkelsen), who quickly wins over the king with a spirited Shakespeare-quoting contest. But as all royal scandals go the queen and the doctor combine their enlightened thoughts Christian. Their dangerous commitment and secret love child ultimately make the teetering regime fall further into darkness. Mikkelsens sturdy expressions mixed with Vikanders soft, questioning gazes make for a believably steamy tryst, and Folsgaards cackling, moody Christian is perfectly clueless to it all. Together, the trio complement each other subtly and effectively. Actor for Folsgaard and Best Screenplay at the Berlin National Film Festival, is similar to other royal representations like The Other Boleyn Girl and Marie Antoinette in regards to its lavish sets. But the focus on char acter sets it apart from its other, more decorative predecessors. A Royal Affair is screening at the Hippodrome starting Friday.

Jillette Johnson and Rachel Rose will join him as opening acts. Allen is an Arkansas-bred singer/songwriter touring North America in support of his sophomore album, Thank You Camellia, which released in May. The Avenue talked to Kris about his upcoming show in Gainesville, his thoughts about being an expectant father and his maturation as a songwriter. Q: Are you excited to play in Gainesville? Have you toured in this area before? A: I dont think Ive done a ton of touring in Florida. Weve done Miami and Tampa a couple of times. But when it comes down to it, I dont think weve done a place like Gainesville. I know Gainesville is a college town, and I love college towns. I really just enjoy going to smaller cities. Q: How has your songwriting and goals as a musician changed from American Idol You Camellia release? A: I think it changed completely. When I came off the show, I was just a baby. I was really new. I felt like I had a lot of talent but hadnt really ushered in that talent that much yet. Over the years, Ive become friends with a lot of musicians and songwriters, and weve toured with a lot of amazing artists. Ive learned so much. Ive learned what it takes to make it in this business, or at least what I think it takes, anyway. It takes a lot of work, a lot of practice trying to get better every day. I feel like Ive done that. the stage with Bruce SpringOctober during the Little Kids A: It was pretty awesome. I think at one point, I was singing in the same mic as Elvis Costello. After the night was over, I was hanging out on stage. I was waiting for Bruce to walk back .... He initiated conversation, which I thought was amazing. I guess he was in the crowd when I sang earlier that night. He said, You did a really, really good job. It was cool to hear something like that from Bruce Springsteen. Q: What are you most excited about by becoming a father? A: I dont really know what to look forward to. I know its going to be a lot of work a lot of diapers, a lot of poop and stuff like that. After getting our dog a couple years ago, Ive fallen in love with him. Hes pretty much like my son. But I know that its going to be even more intense [when] I have a real kid. I just cant wait to grow up with [them] and see what kind of person they become. Q: Any collaborations with A: There are things in the works, but I will keep my secrets. Q: Whats next for you after this tour? A: Ill spend some time with my family for a little bit because Ill be gone so long, but also songwriting and getting back into the studio.Idol winner to perform at High Dive CD GiveawayThe Avenue is giving away a copy of Kris Allens newest album, Thank You, Camellia.

Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, I know it is a stereotype, but why, at times, are women so sensitive that it is Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Mediocre Advice, Dear Friend, Lets start with middle school a time when relationships do not count. Yes, I went out with a guy named Flea when I was 13 years old. We went on a group date once and never kissed, but were we ever dating? No. When puberty strikes, the concern about an age gap begins. High school is pretty much a danger zone. What if a male senior dated a female freshman, and she didnt even have her period yet? Vice versa, its still gross. Save yourself the trouble, and stick to your own grade. Although people tend to mature in college, no one does in his or still fall through the cracks and probably wont be as mature as they should be for a long time much like those guys from Tennessee who thought alcohol enemas were a good idea. After a certain point in your 20s, age appropriateness is void again. It depends if the maturity are relatively the same. If youre dating someone considerably older or younger and worried about judgmental looks, you are not mature enough to date that person. Dear Friend, Ask your parents what they honestly think of you. These people are your creators. They sugarcoat most of the comments they make about your life choices. Ask them to fully critique you as a human being, not as the monster they gave birth to. Dear Friend, Im going to ignore your confusing question and talk about something important. This overly sensitive side of a woman is her being human. Some people are overly sensitive man or woman. We are led to believe that if a woman is being too sensitive, she is acting like her gender, but if a man is being too sensitive, he is acting like a pussy. This emotion is not a woman thing, its a people thing. someone feels a heavy burden on his or her shoulders and acts too sensitive for you, consider that something may actually be wrong. Show some compassion. JENNIFER HERNANDEZAvenue WriterTarget does it again, with another high-low collaboration.

Most of these promotional sales do really well. Jason Wu sold out quickly, and a lot of customers left with several items from the collection, said Brian Jablonski, store team leader for Target on Archer Road.

However, Gurungs collection ful collaboration with Neiman Mar cus. The 50-piece holiday gift line, which included fashion giants such as Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs and Marchesa, did not sell as much as expected. Critics called the presentation sloppy, and the items cheap and overpriced, leading to what Time Magazine dubbed an epic retail fail. get still carried items from the line at 70 percent off. Fashionista.com reports that the primary reason the collection was such a dud is that most Target shoppers had no idea what it was about or who was involved. I didnt hear about it at all, but I would have shopped the collection, said Yamila Gottig, a 20-yeardidnt know that Target was a carrier for high-fashion clothing. Does this mean that the Prabal Gurung collaboration will be similar Although the designer did have some items in the failed collection, this wont necessarily be true. The fashion world buzzed with interest when Gurungs line was announced in October. In a Target promotional inter view, Gurung said he put a lot of love into the collection literally. all said to be inspired by love and Valentines Day.

and ball-handling responsibilities, but coach Billy Donovan still shouts for Junior when he wants to relay a message to the offense. Although Boynton takes a few illadvised threes, his focus on getting the best possible shot has improved. He knows when to attack in transition, and he knows when things need to be slowed down. He knows when to run clock to protect a lead, when to settle the offense to kill off an opponents run and even how to take advantage of the extra possession in end-of-half situations. Even with the added responsibility, hes still turned the ball over less frequently than every Gator except Erik While Boyntons praise as a defensive stopper has dwindled from the heights it reached during his sophomore year, he is still a great on-ball defender who practically never fouls. With Brad Beal gone to the NBA, Boynton has increased his defensive rebound rate by nearly 54 percent from last season. His mark of 3.9 rebounds per game is just .6 fewer than Erik Murphys 4.5 obvious math. All little things, but all valuable. And all signs of a veteran leader with nine NCAA Tournament games under his belt who deserves to be the favorite for SEC Player of the Year. The award has been handed out 22 times in my lifetime (since 1991), and 15 times it has gone to a player from the conferences regular-season champion. The season is still very young, but nobody in the SEC is putting up big enough numbers to buck that trend. And with Florida the prohibitive favorite to take the title top contenders Kentucky and Missouri have already lost Boynton has an excellent shot to claim the award in 2013.

Said coach Amanda OLeary: They came in as freshmen, and it was a whirlwind of new experiences for them. The current seniors took Florida from a new program ter of three years. Weve been through so much together, Cullen said. Weve been through so many lows and so many highs. The Gators will aim to overcome the low of last seafeat against Syracuse. Florida is considered a top competitor for the national title. Winning the ultimate prize is something the original recruiting class wants to year at UF. We want to win that much more for each other, Cullen said. OLeary added: I couldnt be more pleased with our senior class. And no matter how we do this season, they will always go down in history at Florida, and certainly in my heart.

State. Brissett, a former four-star recruit, announced his decision to leave the Gators on Jan. 6.Kitty Cullen and her teammates are expected to contend for a national championship this year. See story, page14. LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer As Florida bullied LSU in Baton Rouge, La., on Saturday, Texas A&Ms Elston Turner was putting on a show against Kentucky in Rupp Arena. In the Aggies 83-71 upset win against the Wildcats in Lexington, Ky., Turner scored a career-best 40 points on 14-of-19 shooting. The 6-foot-5 senior guard drilled 6 of 10 three-pointers, grabbed six rebounds and notched four assists. The home conference loss was Kentucky coach John Caliparis Wildcats. Im surprised that the guy went for 40 (points) against Kentucky, junior center Patric Young said. You wouldnt think anyone could do that at Rupp Arena. After watching Turner gain national attention, No. 10 Florida (12-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) will look to contain him when it travels to Reed Arena in College Station, Texas, to face Texas A&M tonight at 7. Turner leads the Aggies (12-3, 2-0 SEC) with 17.1 points on 13 44.2 percent from three-point range and 79.5 percent from the charity stripe. He can do it a lot of different ways, coach Billy Donovan said. The thing that was so impressive to me about him scoring in the game against Kentucky was when you see a guy score 40 points, the the shot attempts. A guy takes 30 shots and scores 40 points, that is really not a big deal. When you give a good scorer enough attempts at the basket, they are going to score points. The thing that was impressive to me was his number of shots didnt even equal the amount of points he scored. He scored 40 points on 19 shots. To me, that is a sign of a According to KenPom.com, Texas A&M has an adjusted ofis good enough for 47th in the country. cies of 121.2 on offense and 83.2 on defense each rank second in the NCAA. When Florida defeated Texas A&M 84-64 on Dec. 17, 2011, at the Orange Bowl Basketball Classic in Sunrise, Turner scored 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting and made 3 of 5 attempts behind the arc. There will be some things Ryan Jones / Alligator Senior Kenny Boynton defends Georgia guard Vincent Williams during Floridas 77-44 win on Jan. 9 in the OConnell Center. UFs defense will be tasked with stopping Texas A&Ms Elston Turner tonight at 7. Florida to be tested by star Texas A&M scoring guardEND OF GREGULATION When discussing Kenny Boynton, fans and onlookers only seem to care about one thing: Is he hot, or is he cold? But boiling his value down to that single question is a mistake, one that neglects everything Boynton does as a distributor, playmaker, defender and rebounder. Instead of rightfully labeling Boynton the frontrunner for Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, critics deem him a streaky shooter and call it a day. Yes, Boyntons streakiness is tough to deny. He made only seven threes in six games before pouring in eight against Yale on Jan. 6. But those who think Boynton is having a poor season shooting the ball need to adjust their expectations. Boynton has hit 35.5 percent of his threes this season. The national average entering play on Wednesday was 33.6 percent. Aside an 18-game sample over which Boynton shot an uncanny 45.8 32.4 percent three-point shooter. Thats just about who he is. With Boyntons game that has pleased coach Billy Donovan in recent is closer to 35 percent. Regardless, what makes Boynton so effective offensively is his ability to score multiple ways. With each season, Boyntons abilhas improved. Hes accumulated 1,782 points, a mark that trails Ronnie Williams UF career record by 308. Assuming 16 regular season games plus another six between the SEC and NCAA tournaments (anything less would be a disappointment), Boynton can match that record with 14 points per game. Hes averaged 13.8 per game this season, so itll be close. All too often, this is where the discussion of Boynton ends. Shooting and scoring. Shooting and scoring. In reality, theres much more to his game. After three years playing alongside Erving Walker, Boynton has become UFs point guard. Junior Scottie Wilbekin has taken on many of the distribution Boynton more than just shooting KATIE AGOSTIN Alligator Staff Writer Junior Ebony Eutsey wasnt happy when coach Mike Holloway suggested she add short sprints to her training routine during the fall semester. But after some convincing, Holloway got through to Eutsey. I didnt used to like sprinting, but since coach Holloway gave me a talk about the more you sprint, the faster you are in the 400 meter and then that carries over into the 200 meter as well, I was like, OK, get your mind right, you need to do this, Eutsey said. I feel very comfortable doing it now. Although Eutsey now enjoys the change in her training, she said the transition wasnt easy. Eutsey, who specializes in the 400m, said shes always struggled with sprinting. Adding 60m sprints to her routine was Its always been so hard for me to really sprint fast like a true sprinter, so it was kind of hard for me to follow through with it, Eutsey said. But then, as time went by, I started to understand that this would help my 400-meter time, so it turned out to be great. ing her races strong thanks to the New training paying off SEE TRACK, PAGE 14 SEE HOOPS, PAGE 16 SEE GREG, PAGE 14 There will be some things from [last years] game (against Texas A&M) that we can look at in terms of philosophy, but their personnel has changed some, just like our personnel has changed some.Billy DonovanUF coach Boynton more than just shooting Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca UF Track

from that game that we can look at in terms of philosophy, but their personnel has changed some, just like our personnel has changed some, Donovan said.
