UF, the University of Central Florida, Florida International University and the University of West Florida will each get $3.75 million.

There are many, many areas that contributed to UF winning this money the College of Engineering, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, even the College of Fine Arts, he said. So they will Exactly how the money gets split up and how it gets used remains to be seen. Later on Thursday, the Board of Governors appointed seven people to various universities boards of trustees.

RACHEL CROSBYAlligator Contributing Writer The little red beetle with black polka dots on its back poked about the building. It buzzed above students and whirled up the stairwells. Then it brought its friends. Ladybugs have invaded the dorms on UFs campus. Though theyre considered friends of the garden, at student residence halls, theyre not exactly welcome. Its more annoying than it is a severe issue, said Chana Camachl, an 18-year-old biology freshman. Camachl lives at Lakeside Residential Complex. She said the little beetles have made a home out of the areas common rooms and halls. They wriggle around door knobs and windowsills, roaming from room to room. Darrin Qualls, an 18-year-old psychology freshman, lives in Beaty Towers. He said the bugs buzz about his room benevolent but bothersome. Theyre pretty much everywhere, Qualls said. Sharon Blansett, UF housing spokeswoman, wrote in an email that around this time of year, ladybugs can be found in large quantities on the south sides of UF residence facilities and other buildings. The bugs are seeking warm locations as it cools down outside. or unsealed areas around AC units or other pipes and wires going into buildings, they will get inside, Blansett said. UF entomology professor Nor man Leppla said the ladybugs students are encountering in their rooms are probably multicolored Asian lady beetles. Leppla is also director of the Integrated Pest Management program, which uses a sustainable approach to managing pests. He said the bugs are not harmful to predators that feed on smaller pests. Blansett said if students notice the bugs in their rooms, theyre encouraged to report them through the online iServiceDesk. Maintenance employees will then come and vacuum the bugs out of the room. She said no chemicals are used to treat this type of insect. 4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 2013Lauren Troncoso / AlligatorA ladybug sits on a window in Lakeside Residential Complex Wednesday afternoon.

BEATRICE DUPUYAlligator Contributing WriterStudents, residents and business owners are no longer the only ones standing around downtown Gainesville. Six sculptures have been recently installed outside of local stores as part of a new community initiative. The sculptures are on loan and will remain in Gainesville for two years, said Nava Ottenberg, who owns Persona Vintage Clothing & Costumes. A public art event was held Tuesday to reveal the sculptures to the public. City commissioners and more than 50 community members attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony and walking tour. This is a community project, said activist Mary Rockwood Lane. People wanted to see something interesting happen in their community, and everyone got together and made it happen. A rooster sculpture now stands in front of the downtown Starbucks. It was sculpted by Peruvian artist Victor Delfn in 1960. Delfn also created a stag sculpture, which was placed in front of Persona Vintage Clothing & Costumes. The stag and rooster were loaned by Euphrosyne Parker, who allowed pieces to be bor rowed from her late husbands art collection. In addition, two sculptures by David Bell, titled Love Palm and Starburst, stand in house. Ottenberg said the project was about integrating art and culture into downtown urban spaces. The whole idea was to bring public art into the heart of downtown Gainesville, she said. Ottenberg, along with Rockwood Lane, were part of a group that spearheaded the effort to exhibit the sculptures. Rockwood Lane said they demonstrate the American modern genre. Most of it is very abstract and modern, she said. The sculptures go together beautifully. FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffA statue of a metal stag sits outside Persona Vintage Clothing & Costumes on Southeast Second Place.

ANDREW KAYSAlligator Contributing WriterKatelyn Zanchetta rarely drinks coffee and soda. After hearing about a recent study that found a relationship between drinking soda or coffee and depression, she will continue her ways. drinking habits, said the 20-year-old nursing sophomore. The study, released last week, compiled data from about 260,000 participants aged 50 to 71 regarding their drinking habits from 1995 to 1996. Recently, the researchers surveyed the participants again to determine how many had been diagnosed with depression. The results, supported by the National Institutes of Health, found participants who consumed heavily sweetened drinks such as fruit punch and soda were at an about 30 percent higher risk of depression than those who didnt. Drinkers of diet beverages were at an even higher risk. amounts of coffee more than four cups a day were at a 10 percent lower risk than non-coffee drinkers. Its kind of an odd study, said Wendy Dahl, an assistant professor in UFs food science and human nutrition department. Its interesting to choose a 50-to71 age bracket. You wouldnt think they would be the primary soda drinkers. The study stated the association of depression risk with sugary drinks or coffee did not necessarily mean one causes the other. One of the limits of a [long-term] study is you cant do a cause-and-effect relationship. There are so many factors involved with humans, Dahl said, but the large sample for the study is very helpful for that. KAITLYN PEARSONAlligator Contributing WriterFor some students, Monday Martin Luther King Jr. Day is nothing more than a day off from classes, but for Keenen Vernon, its much more than that. Vernon, an 18-year-old health science freshman at UF, is an event leader for one of the 10 events that will take place during the Day of Service, which kicks off UFs weeklong celebration in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Vernon was in charge of recruiting volunteers for his event, Kids Count, at Faith United Methodist Church. Young and old people are coming from all over Gainesville, he said. The Day of Service starts at 8 a.m. Kings values while making an impact in the world around them. UFs Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Week is in its sixth year of existence as a campus-wide committee, said UFs Director of Intercultural Engagement Jar rod Cruz. Cruz said the event is based on seven values: courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service. UFs campus community provides an opportunity for students to get outside their comfort zones and break down stereotypes and views, he said. The goal, Cruz said, is to create change on campus even when we leave UF. The celebrations signature events include the Day of Service, Aint I a Woman!, a candlelight vigil and a speech from the keynote speaker, author Michael Eric Dyson. One of the celebrations new events is Channeling Your Inner Rosa Parks: Womens Activism Then and Now. Cruz said the Womens Student Association hopes to empower women and raise awareness through this event. Vernon, along with all the volunteers he recruited, waits in anticipation to kick off the celebration. Im excited, he said. Ive never experienced that in my life before.

We can only hope that new legislation will be the impetus of a healthy change of the attitude in America. Be safe, and have a good week!Be mindful of everyone on the roadsBefore reading this column, I encourage you to look up the selective attention test of Daniel Simons and Christopher Chabris. (An Internet search of selective attention test should return it as a result.) The test is a video that runs for about a minute and gauges the effects of a persons attention while performing a simple task. The lesson of the test is that divided attention, even when performing a very simple task, can keep people from seeing what is right in front of them. It is with this in mind that I want to turn your attention to the relationship between cars and bicycles. I can recall having read a gruesome column in the Alligator as a freshman cyclist. The column detailed the traumatic experience of another Gainesville cyclist. I awoke bloody and in sharp pain at 2:25 a.m. on Sept. 4. I couldnt tell you what city I lived in, what my name was or what happened. What I do remember is shoving my jaw back into place, spitting blood into the street and watching all the sparkling OK. My concussion made the truth blurry, but from my bruises and broken bones, it seemed I was clipped by a vehicle on my bicycle. That image has lingered with me for almost four years and has almost certainly saved me from danger. It has caused me to create habits of safety. I always wear a helmet, look both ways and often even wait to make eye contact with drivers on the road before I move. Lately though, Ive found it harder to make eye contact will often see stopped drivers looking down at their phones and texting. This is a dangerous habit. This habit kills people. In 2009, more than 5,400 people died in accidents involving a distracted driver, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Let that sink in for a moment. Im going to assume youve taken the selective attention test by now. The punch line of the test, so to speak, is that a gorilla walks in halfway through the test, thumps his chest and walks off screen. This comes as a complete surprise to about half of those who watch the video. When I took the test, I didnt see the gorilla either. He seemed to come out of nowhere. I was distracted and I just wasnt looking for a gorilla. Lets take a more complex action like driving. What would happen if you were only looking for cars and nothing else? Would you see a cyclist? What if you were distracted by music? Would that hinder your ability to avoid hurting someone? What about talking on the phone? What about texting? killed about 10,000 people in 2010, which is about as many Most people who set out to travel dont do it with the inones jamming out on air guitar or someones night out clubbing can turn into a lost life. What about just simple aggressive driving? Ive been a passenger and witnessed drivers lumber around in their get frustrated, in the most careless fashion. Its just not acceptable. Many bikers also engage in risky behavior, which is equally unacceptable. We should all be more careful on the road and keep a lookout for each other. We all just want to get where were going. Lets try to make that happen with as little pain as possible. The text can wait. Brandon Lee Gagne is an anthropology senior at UF. His column runs on Fridays.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 To the executives at E! Entertainment Television, Greetings. It is with heavy heart that I pen this letter, for I am deeply disappointed with the preliminary tapes I received of my show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do? Furthermore, I am concerned with the way I, Ryan Lochte, am represented as an athlete, comedian, actor, and connoisseur of fashion and footwear with this network. I hope the executives, directors and production staff will take my concerns to heart, as it appears no one at this network seems to recognize humor in the form of satire and irony. Apparently, the insufferable personalities of the Kardashians and Ryan Seacrest have understandably numbed you all. I digress. I am tired of wasting my comedic genius on a satirical Twitter account that is wrongly perceived to be sincere. I am tired of my pithy catchphrase, Jeah, being bastardized on unironic frat tanks worn by Americas drunken youth. I am tired of suffering in silence as the punch line to societys jokes while Michael Phelps is allowed a serious career as a student to Tiger Woods in his pursuit to master golf. I ask, E!, where is my mentor? Why is Phelps offered assistance in his switch from swimmer to golfer, and I am refused a switch from swimmer to actor? When is it Ryans turn? I suffered through my appearances on and various Funny or Die videos in hopes that my natural ability as a important directors, but no. Instead of receiving offers for serious projects, I am shoved into the ranks of the Kardashian family, the forgotten other Jonas Brother, Ice-T and Ryan Seacrest. Im sick and tired of continual punishment and mockery simply for being young, beautiful and enjoying a night out every once in a while. I spent many hours with the crew rehearsing my show in one act, Chlorine Dreams and Ripped Speedo Seams, but I saw nary a mention of my foray into play writing on the tapes. In addition, my extensive contributions to the Derek Zoolander School for Kids Who Cant Read Good and Wanna Learn to do Other Stuff Good Too were largely ignored, as was the album I recorded in my home studio of classic movie themes performed on the recorder. All of this, of course, was on top of my rigorous training and pursuit of true life in various clubs in downtown Gainesville. For shame, E!, for shame! I was also troubled by the statements I read in the Washington Post last week from E! Entertainment President Suzanne Kolb. Kolb said, Watching this show, I believe people will fall into three categories: they want to be him, sleep with him or mother him. I found it incredibly rude and insensitive that Kolb would try to foist an image of me as a conceited, promiscuous boor with an Oedipus complex on the American public. I was told this reality show would be a chance for my fans to catch a glimpse into the deep waters of my complicated psyche and see me not as a paltry Nike designer or Olympic medalist but as an artist. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, To create, to create, is the proof of a divine presence. I am only striving for that divinity, and I am hurt that this network has made a mockery of my attempts to become a serious actor. Due to contractual obligations, I suppose there is not a thing I can do. I will continue to suffer the pains of being attractive and talented. acclaimed American acting teacher Stella Adler said, Life beats down and crushes the soul, and art reminds you that you have one.

ELISE GIORDANOAlligator Staff WriterPeggy Jellema and Nancy Macaulay gazed at a set of potted trees set to be given away Thursday outside the Senior Recreation Center in northwest Gainesville. I want one of those, Macaulay, 73, said, pointing at a southern magnolia. Its already green! She and Jellema, 76, were among about 50 attendees at the center who celebrated Florida Arbor Day, a holiday that encourages residents statewide to plant and take care of trees in their communities. Presented by the City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department, the Four Seasons Garden Club, the ceremony commemorated Gainesvilles 29th year as a Tree City USA. Although Arbor Day is celebrated in April nationwide, Florida residents celebrate early because of favorable weather conditions, said Mark Siburt, a Gainesville arborist. Fifty-seven trees were planted Tuesday at Northside Park, with the the center during Thursdays cer emony. Each pair of trees planted represented each year the city had been a tree-friendly community. Siburt said its important for Gainesville to protect its trees. Trees are being removed, he said. Its important to replenish the canopy that is lost.

KATHRYN VARNAlligator WriterGainesville Police is looking for two men accused of robbing a Dominos Pizza delivery driver Wednesday night. Jason L. Lynady, but as of Thursday night, investigators were still looking for both men, said GPD spokesman Ben Tobias. The incident occurred at about 11 p.m. Wednesday when James Phillips was delivering a pizza to the Palms at Brook Valley apartment complex, located on the 1100 block of Northwest 39th Avenue. While Phillips, 28, made his delivery, Lynady and another man walked up to him and allegedly stole his pizza, a pizza bag and $20 in cash, police said. complex to look for Lynady and the other man but could earlier bragged to his friends about his plan for a pizza delivery robbery, Tobias said.

The American Veterinary Medical Association ranked Florida No. 45 for cat ownership this week, with about 27 percent of households in the state reported to own a cat. I feel like it would be a lot larger, said Jessica Charlton, a program coordinator at Operation Catnip, an Alachua County organization that spays and neuters feral cats. Charlton said regardless of how many cats have owners in the Gainesville area, about 80,000 still live without a home. She said these numbers are calculated in comparison to the human population in the area. Patti Gordon, a veterinarian at All Cats HealthCare Clinic, said she was shocked at the statistic. Im surprised its so low, she said. I think the Gainesville area has a fairly large cat ownership, and I think we probably Courtney Ellis, a 23-year-old health education and behavior senior, has cared for her 4-year-old tortoiseshell cat, Nola, for the last three years. Ellis said she didnt like the fact that Flor ida ranked low on the study. I think theres a negative stigma toward cats, she said. Cats are so calm. When they want love, they come to you. The top states for cat ownership included Vermont, where 49.5 percent of households had a cat, and Maine, where 46.4 percent of households own a cat.Lauren Troncoso / AlligatorDillan Gagnon, 2, and his grandmother Ellie Smith pet Tasha, a 4-year-old gray manx mix, Thursday afternoon at the Alachua County Humane Society.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 11 10, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 2013 CAMPUS GARRETT BRUNOAlligator Contributing WriterGillian Lord, chair of the Spanish and Portuguese Studies department, told Rosetta Stone she was trained to hate the company because it was trying to put her out of a job. Her newest study is about to put that idea to the test. This semester, 21 students taking Beginning Spanish 1 at UF are voluntarily taking the course using Rosetta Stone, the language learning computer software, instead of going to class. things people say after asking me to say something in Spanish is, Does Rosetta Stone really work? Lord said. Lord received a $12,000 grant from UFs Humanities Scholarship Enhancement Fund to compare the test groups include students using only the software, students going to class using Rosetta Stone as a textbook supplement and students in a traditional class using the assigned textbook. Were not trying to eliminate beginning Spanish, Lord said. Its not going anywhere. Were just looking at what works and what doesnt. Students in the class-exempt section will be required to attend four meetings to assess their progress. Students in all sections will take mester, she said. My hunch is that there are things that [the Rosetta Stone students] will be able to accomplish very well, but when it comes to interpersonal interaction, they might not advance as well as the others, she said. Carlos Enrique Ibarra is the teaching assistant assigned to teach both the hybrid class using Rosetta Stone as the textbook supplement and the traditional class. Technology can be used in very effective ways, he said. If you compare how much both groups have learned so far, even though the [Rosetta Stone textbook class] seem to be at more ease speaking, they have learned much less. [The regular textbook students] are a little more scared. They feel a little more pressure, but they have learned a lot more. John Robinson, a second-year law student who is in the class-exempt section, said he feels accountable when sitting in class with a teacher and peers. Rosetta Stone is just a computer, so you dont feel that bad if you get it wrong, he said.Rosetta Stone language software used in Spanish classes THE LECTURE WILL BE HELD AT 7:30 P.M. TONIGHT. ELLEN VILLAFUERTEAlligator Contributing WriterWorld-renowned peace activist the Rev. Joan Brown Campbell will talk about religious tolerance and her life as an activist tonight at Santa Fe College. The lecture, sponsored by SFCs Humanities and Foreign Languages Department, is free and open to the public. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. and will be held at SFCs Fine Arts Hall, 3000 NW 83rd St. Parking at the college will also be free. Bill Little, department chair of the Humanities and Foreign Languages Department, said about 300 people are expected to attend the event. We are all truly honored to have this international speaker at our college, he said. This is a major event for our campus. Campbells accomplishments include having held local and to become a general secretary for the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA. She also holds 11 honorary doctorate degrees. Campbell is the director of the Department of Religion at the Chautauqua Institute in New York. SFC President Dr. Jackson Sasser said he looks forward to having Campbell talk about her message of religious tolerance. To understand humanity is to understand and respect the great religions of the world, and to have someone as distinguished as Joan Campbell to provide a better understanding of the central core of religion, which is compassion, is a positive experience, he said. Campbell will also talk about her Charter for Compassion, a document she co-authored promoting the restoration of compassion in the world, as well as tolerating differences in religion and ideology. Sasser said he agreed with the documents purpose. Thats what a public institution should be doing promoting understanding and tolerance in all religions, he said. Important parts of the community, such as colleges, should not be promoting one religion over another, or any religion, for that matter. So far, about 90,000 people have signed Campbells document online. When Campbell concludes her lecture tonight, Sasser, representing the SFC community, will sign the document on stage. When that charter is signed on behalf of SF College, Little already promote here in our community.Peace activist to speak at Santa Fe about religious toleranceLord

Matt Elam, former UF safety @ElamvsElo alligatorSports.orgVisit our website this weekend for coverage of UF mens and womens basketball, gymnastics, mens tennis and mens and womens swimming competitions. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff WriterFormer Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn accepted the same position with the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday afternoon. Gators special teams coordinator and linebackers coach D.J. Durkin was promoted to replace Quinn. Im happy for Dan and this oppor tunity, coach Will Muschamp said in a statement. Ive said before that I always encourage my staff when opportunities arise to take the next step in their career. Dans background is in the NFL and this is a great chance to go back to a place hes familiar with. Quinn previously served as the Seahawks defensive line coach for two years before coming to Florida. He rejoins Pete Carroll in Seattle after spending the past void left by former Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, who was hired as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday. The Gators ranked ninth in the nation in total defense in 2010 prior to Quinns arrival, allowing 306.5 yards per game. The following season, the unit surrendered just 299.5 yards per game, which was good for eighth in the country. with just 286.7 yards allowed per game Durkin, who has served as Floridas special teams coordinator and linebackers coach for the past three seasons, will continue to coach the linebackers in his new position. D.J. and I will run the defense, continuing the way that Dan and I did for the past two years, Muschamp said in the press release. We will look to add anmoving forward. The Gators are losing seven defensive starters from their 2012 team: defensive tackles Sharrif Floyd and Omar Hunter, safeties Matt Elam and Josh Evans and linebackers Jon Bostic, Jelani Jenkins and Lerentee McCray. turning starters and other underclassmen son to work with including cornerbacks Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson, defensive linemen Dominique Easley, Jonathan Bullard and Dante Fowler, and linebackers Antonio Morrison, Michael Taylor and Neiron Ball.

David Carr / Alligator StaffFormer UF defensive coordinator Dan Quinn calls a play during Floridas Seahawks hire Quinn as new coordinatorMuschamp promotes Durkin PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer January Miller emerged as a legitimate scor ing option for the Gators two weeks ago. Facing No. 6 Kentucky on the road, Miller 5-of-7 shooting performance. again, dropping 11 points against No. 9 Tennessee. Florida lost each game, but coach Amanda Butler found another go-to scorer, something she expected Miller to become this season. Shes here because she is a scorer, Butler said. January, if you just start tracking people from the beginning of the season to where we are right now, is, hands down, our most improved player. Butler hopes Millers improvement continues when Florida faces South Carolina in the OConnell Center on Sunday at 1 p.m. The Gators lost two matchups to the Gamecocks last season, scoring a season-low 44 points in a home loss on Jan. 8. Entering Thursday, South Carolina again boasts one of the nations top defensive units. The Gamecocks are tied for 11th in the nation allowing just 0.72 points per possession. South Carolina ranks second only to Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference with that mark. Coach Dawn Staleys team is third in the country in scoring defense, limiting opponents to 47.1 points per contest. They are one of the best defensive teams not just in our conference but in the country, Butler said. Florida is preparing for another physical, low-scoring affair. Millers offensive production will be critical off the bench. the role coaches expected of her. She averaged tests. Freshman guard improving quicklyWOMENS BASKETBALL LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterUF pressured Texas A&M defensively on Thursday night, and the Aggies folded. No. 10 Florida (13-2, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) used a 22-2 run to seal a 68-47 victory against Texas A&M in Reed Arena in College Station, Texas. We just knew on the road its really tough to come in here and get a win, junior Patric Young said. We knew we had to be focused on our concepts of moving the ball around and really locking down on Elston Turner, and we really did a good job of that. Turner, the Aggies leading scorer with 17.1 points per game before Thursday, scored only 4 points on 1-of-10 shooting. In the senior guards last contest an 83-71 upset against Kentucky on Saturday he scored 40 points and made 14 of Give Scottie Wilbekin a lot of credit, coach Billy Donovan said. He did a heck of a job on Elston UF contained Texas A&M (12-4, 2-1 SEC) to 34 percent shooting. Before Thursdays game, the Aggies shot 45.8 per cent.

TRACK AND FIELD KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff WriterJunior Eddie Lovett was focusing on three things while setting the mens 55-meter hurdles. Head down, back parallel to the ground and looking at his feet. preliminary heat with a time of 7.17 at Thursdays Gator Invitational, hurdles coach Erin Tucker discussed his concerns with Lovetts start. He told me that my start wasnt as good, and I picked my head up too soon, Lovett said. My advantage what really gets the job done is my start and me in between (hurdles), so I just really focused on that for the Lovetts focus worked. with a time of 7.10 to break a 23-year-old Florida record, which Earl Diamond set in 1990 with a time of 7.15. Lovett also claimed his second straight individual title this season. Eddie Lovett, what can you say, coach Mike Holloway said. He had a phenomenal perfor mance a new school record. Couldnt ask more from him today. Last year Lovett suffered a tear to his oblique that sidelined him for a majority of the indoor season. He also battled problems in his psoas muscle during the indoor season, which affected his posture during races. Still, Lovett said that hes much last two performances as the Gators head into their most challenging meet yet the Razorback Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark. These two meets were a good practice, Lovett said. Now its just basically getting it going like a steamroller. As you go, it gets better, and Ill be full speed by the time we get to [the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships]. Along with Lovetts victory, Florida had 11 wins at the Gator Invitational including 21 top-three Ill be honest with you, I think weve got some work to do on the sprinters, Holloway said. Overall, were in a good spot; I really liked what I saw. I just like this team as a whole. Theres good people, theyre hardworking and they really want to get better.

on [Turner] but their team was very good, Donovan said. We had a couple breakdowns here and there, but on the road, to come in like that was really impressive by our guys. Young scored 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting. The junior center also tallied three steals and pulled down seven rebounds. After missing Saturdays 74-52 road win against LSU in Baton Rouge, La., with a left ankle sprain, Mike Rosario scored a team-high 19 points on 7-of15 shooting. The redshirt senior guard the contests opening 7 minutes. Senior forward Erik Murphy recorded 16 points and grabbed seven boards. The Gators led by only one point with the Aggies to 1-of-16 shooting until the 16:16 mark in the second period. I thought we got a little lucky in the offensive rebounds that they didnt score on, Donovan said. Then we had a couple bad possessions on offense. Then we (Kenny) Boynton hit a three, Murphy hit a three, Patric got a couple three-point plays, and we opened up a pretty good lead. Although the Aggies outrebounded battle 16-11. With junior forward Casey Prather sidelined due to a high left ankle sprain, Donovan used a rotation of seven players. Four played through injuries. After Thursdays game, Donovan has a chance to earn win No. 400 as Floridas head coach on Saturday against No. 17 The key word for this year with [Donovan] has been resilience and per sistence through the adversity, through the injuries, the concussions, the sprained ankles, Young said. We didnt hang our heads, and weve had great results. wont be an issue for the banged-up Gators on Saturday. We trust our trainers in [Dave] Wer ner and Preston Greene that they are going to make sure we get ready for the game, Young said. (Were) not worried about our legs. A radio broadcast contributed to this report. But Miller has since become more effective. In four SEC games, she is averaging 8.5 points, which ranks fourth on the team and is tops among Floridas freshmen. Shes come a long, long way, Butler said. shes our most improved player. For Miller, the increased production stems from a self-assuredness that has developed throughout the season. Im getting more comfortable, Miller said. Coming from high school to college, its obviously a big change. Weve Weve played in tough games and made monumental changes to get better as a unit. The epitome of Millers development came late in regulation against Tennessee on Sunday. The Volunteers led 69-68 in the second half. Butler called a timeout following a missed jumper by Tennessees Isabelle Harrison and diagrammed a play the Gators work on tirelessly in practice. The play called for Miller to use a screen to take a shot from the elbow, an area Butler coined the money box. Miller did such, receiving the ball and sinking the shot to give the Gators a 70-69 advantage with 29 seconds remaining. Tennessees Bashaara Graves was fouled 16 seconds later. She made one free throw to tie the game, stripping Miller of her potential gamewinning shot. Coaches and teammates were impressed with the freshmans poise. come into her own, junior Vicky McIntyre said. Were just going to keep going to her as long as shes hot.

Then it brought its friends. Ladybugs have invaded the dorms on UFs campus. Though theyre considered friends of the garden, at student residence halls, theyre not exactly welcome.

UF entomology professor Norman Leppla said the ladybugs students are encountering in their rooms are probably multicolored Asian lady beetles. Leppla is also director of the Integrated Pest Management program, which uses a sustainable approach to managing pests. He said the bugs are not harmful to predators that feed on smaller pests. Blansett said if students notice the bugs in their rooms, theyre encouraged to report them through the online iServiceDesk. Maintenance employees will then come and vacuum the bugs out of the room.

BEATRICE DUPUYAlligator Contributing WriterStudents, residents and business owners are no longer the only ones standing around downtown Gainesville. Six sculptures have been recently installed outside of local stores as part of a new community initiative. The sculptures are on loan and will remain in Gainesville for two years, said Nava Ottenberg, who owns Persona Vintage Clothing & Costumes. A public art event was held Tuesday to reveal the sculptures to the public. City commissioners and more than 50 community members attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony and walking tour. This is a community project, said activist Mary Rockwood Lane. People wanted to see something interesting happen in their community, and everyone got together and made it happen. A rooster sculpture now stands in front of the downtown Starbucks. It was sculpted by Peruvian artist Victor Delfn in 1960. Delfn also created a stag sculpture, which was placed in front of Persona Vintage Clothing & Costumes. The stag and rooster were loaned by Euphrosyne Parker, who allowed pieces to be bor rowed from her late husbands art collection. In addition, two sculptures by David Bell, titled Love Palm and Starburst, stand in house. Ottenberg said the project was about integrating art and culture into downtown urban spaces. The whole idea was to bring public art into the heart of downtown Gainesville, she said. Ottenberg, along with Rockwood Lane, were part of a group that spearheaded the effort to exhibit the sculptures. Rockwood Lane said they demonstrate the American modern genre. Most of it is very abstract and modern, she said. The sculptures go together beautifully.

After hearing about a recent study that found a relationship between drinking soda or coffee and depression, she will continue her ways. drinking habits, said the 20-year-old nursing sophomore. The study, released last week, compiled data from about 260,000 participants aged 50 to 71 regarding their drinking habits from 1995 to 1996. Recently, the researchers surveyed the participants again to determine how many had been diagnosed with depression. The results, supported by the National Institutes of Health, found participants who consumed heavily sweetened drinks such as fruit punch and soda were at an about 30 percent higher risk of depression than those who didnt. Drinkers of diet beverages were at an even higher risk. amounts of coffee more than four cups a day were at a 10 percent lower risk than non-coffee drinkers. Its kind of an odd study, said Wendy Dahl, an assistant professor in UFs food science and human nutrition department. Its interesting to choose a 50-to71 age bracket. You wouldnt think they would be the primary soda drinkers. The study stated the association of depression risk with sugary drinks or coffee did not necessarily mean one causes the other. One of the limits of a [long-term] study is you cant do a cause-and-effect relationship. There are so many factors involved with humans, Dahl said, but the large sample for the study is very helpful for that.

UFs Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Week is in its sixth year of existence as a campus-wide committee, said UFs Director of Intercultural Engagement Jar rod Cruz. Cruz said the event is based on seven values: courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service. UFs campus community provides an opportunity for students to get outside their comfort zones and break down stereotypes and views, he said. The goal, Cruz said, is to create change on campus even when we leave UF. The celebrations signature events include the Day of Service, Aint I a Woman!, a candlelight vigil and a speech from the keynote speaker, author Michael Eric Dyson. One of the celebrations new events is Channeling Your Inner Rosa Parks: Womens Activism Then and Now. Cruz said the Womens Student Association hopes to empower women and raise awareness through this event. Vernon, along with all the volunteers he recruited, waits in anticipation to kick off the celebration. Im excited, he said. Ive never experienced that in my life before.

Be safe, and have a good week!Be mindful of everyone on the roadsBefore reading this column, I encourage you to look up the selective attention test of Daniel Simons and Christopher Chabris. (An Internet search of selective attention test should return it as a result.) The test is a video that runs for about a minute and gauges the effects of a persons attention while performing a simple task. The lesson of the test is that divided attention, even when performing a very simple task, can keep people from seeing what is right in front of them. It is with this in mind that I want to turn your attention to the relationship between cars and bicycles. I can recall having read a gruesome column in the Alligator as a freshman cyclist. The column detailed the traumatic experience of another Gainesville cyclist. I awoke bloody and in sharp pain at 2:25 a.m. on Sept. 4. I couldnt tell you what city I lived in, what my name was or what happened. What I do remember is shoving my jaw back into place, spitting blood into the street and watching all the sparkling OK. My concussion made the truth blurry, but from my bruises and broken bones, it seemed I was clipped by a vehicle on my bicycle. That image has lingered with me for almost four years and has almost certainly saved me from danger. It has caused me to create habits of safety. I always wear a helmet, look both ways and often even wait to make eye contact with drivers on the road before I move. Lately though, Ive found it harder to make eye contact will often see stopped drivers looking down at their phones and texting. This is a dangerous habit. This habit kills people. In 2009, more than 5,400 people died in accidents involving a distracted driver, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Let that sink in for a moment. Im going to assume youve taken the selective attention test by now. The punch line of the test, so to speak, is that a gorilla walks in halfway through the test, thumps his chest and walks off screen. This comes as a complete surprise to about half of those who watch the video. When I took the test, I didnt see the gorilla either. He seemed to come out of nowhere. I was distracted and I just wasnt looking for a gorilla. Lets take a more complex action like driving. What would happen if you were only looking for cars and nothing else? Would you see a cyclist? What if you were distracted by music? Would that hinder your ability to avoid hurting someone? What about talking on the phone? What about texting? killed about 10,000 people in 2010, which is about as many Most people who set out to travel dont do it with the inones jamming out on air guitar or someones night out clubbing can turn into a lost life. What about just simple aggressive driving? Ive been a passenger and witnessed drivers lumber around in their get frustrated, in the most careless fashion. Its just not acceptable. Many bikers also engage in risky behavior, which is equally unacceptable. We should all be more careful on the road and keep a lookout for each other. We all just want to get where were going. Lets try to make that happen with as little pain as possible. The text can wait. Brandon Lee Gagne is an anthropology senior at UF. His column runs on Fridays.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 To the executives at E! Entertainment Television, Greetings. It is with heavy heart that I pen this letter, for I am deeply disappointed with the preliminary tapes I received of my show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do? Furthermore, I am concerned with the way I, Ryan Lochte, am represented as an athlete, comedian, actor, and connoisseur of fashion and footwear with this network. I hope the executives, directors and production staff will take my concerns to heart, as it appears no one at this network seems to recognize humor in the form of satire and irony. Apparently, the insufferable personalities of the Kardashians and Ryan Seacrest have understandably numbed you all. I digress. I am tired of wasting my comedic genius on a satirical Twitter account that is wrongly perceived to be sincere. I am tired of my pithy catchphrase, Jeah, being bastardized on unironic frat tanks worn by Americas drunken youth. I am tired of suffering in silence as the punch line to societys jokes while Michael Phelps is allowed a serious career as a student to Tiger Woods in his pursuit to master golf. I ask, E!, where is my mentor? Why is Phelps offered assistance in his switch from swimmer to golfer, and I am refused a switch from swimmer to actor? When is it Ryans turn? I suffered through my appearances on and various Funny or Die videos in hopes that my natural ability as a important directors, but no. Instead of receiving offers for serious projects, I am shoved into the ranks of the Kardashian family, the forgotten other Jonas Brother, Ice-T and Ryan Seacrest. Im sick and tired of continual punishment and mockery simply for being young, beautiful and enjoying a night out every once in a while. I spent many hours with the crew rehearsing my show in one act, Chlorine Dreams and Ripped Speedo Seams, but I saw nary a mention of my foray into play writing on the tapes. In addition, my extensive contributions to the Derek Zoolander School for Kids Who Cant Read Good and Wanna Learn to do Other Stuff Good Too were largely ignored, as was the album I recorded in my home studio of classic movie themes performed on the recorder. All of this, of course, was on top of my rigorous training and pursuit of true life in various clubs in downtown Gainesville. For shame, E!, for shame! I was also troubled by the statements I read in the Washington Post last week from E! Entertainment President Suzanne Kolb. Kolb said, Watching this show, I believe people will fall into three categories: they want to be him, sleep with him or mother him. I found it incredibly rude and insensitive that Kolb would try to foist an image of me as a conceited, promiscuous boor with an Oedipus complex on the American public. I was told this reality show would be a chance for my fans to catch a glimpse into the deep waters of my complicated psyche and see me not as a paltry Nike designer or Olympic medalist but as an artist. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, To create, to create, is the proof of a divine presence. I am only striving for that divinity, and I am hurt that this network has made a mockery of my attempts to become a serious actor. Due to contractual obligations, I suppose there is not a thing I can do. I will continue to suffer the pains of being attractive and talented. acclaimed American acting teacher Stella Adler said, Life beats down and crushes the soul, and art reminds you that you have one.

ELISE GIORDANOAlligator Staff WriterPeggy Jellema and Nancy Macaulay gazed at a set of potted trees set to be given away Thursday outside the Senior Recreation Center in northwest Gainesville. I want one of those, Macaulay, 73, said, pointing at a southern magnolia. Its already green! She and Jellema, 76, were among about 50 attendees at the center who celebrated Florida Arbor Day, a holiday that encourages residents statewide to plant and take care of trees in their communities. Presented by the City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department, the Four Seasons Garden Club, the ceremony commemorated Gainesvilles 29th year as a Tree City USA. Although Arbor Day is celebrated in April nationwide, Florida residents celebrate early because of favorable weather conditions, said Mark Siburt, a Gainesville arborist. Fifty-seven trees were planted Tuesday at Northside Park, with the the center during Thursdays cer emony. Each pair of trees planted represented each year the city had been a tree-friendly community. Siburt said its important for Gainesville to protect its trees. Trees are being removed, he said. Its important to replenish the canopy that is lost.

KATHRYN VARNAlligator WriterGainesville Police is looking for two men accused of robbing a Dominos Pizza delivery driver Wednesday night. Jason L. Lynady, but as of Thursday night, investigators were still looking for both men, said GPD spokesman Ben Tobias. The incident occurred at about 11 p.m. Wednesday when James Phillips was delivering a pizza to the Palms at Brook Valley apartment complex, located on the 1100 block of Northwest 39th Avenue. While Phillips, 28, made his delivery, Lynady and another man walked up to him and allegedly stole his pizza, a pizza bag and $20 in cash, police said. complex to look for Lynady and the other man but could earlier bragged to his friends about his plan for a pizza delivery robbery, Tobias said.

The American Veterinary Medical Association ranked Florida No. 45 for cat ownership this week, with about 27 percent of households in the state reported to own a cat. I feel like it would be a lot larger, said Jessica Charlton, a program coordinator at Operation Catnip, an Alachua County organization that spays and neuters feral cats. Charlton said regardless of how many cats have owners in the Gainesville area, about 80,000 still live without a home. She said these numbers are calculated in comparison to the human population in the area. Patti Gordon, a veterinarian at All Cats HealthCare Clinic, said she was shocked at the statistic. Im surprised its so low, she said. I think the Gainesville area has a fairly large cat ownership, and I think we probably Courtney Ellis, a 23-year-old health education and behavior senior, has cared for her 4-year-old tortoiseshell cat, Nola, for the last three years. Ellis said she didnt like the fact that Flor ida ranked low on the study. I think theres a negative stigma toward cats, she said. Cats are so calm. When they want love, they come to you. The top states for cat ownership included Vermont, where 49.5 percent of households had a cat, and Maine, where 46.4 percent of households own a cat.Lauren Troncoso / AlligatorDillan Gagnon, 2, and his grandmother Ellie Smith pet Tasha, a 4-year-old gray manx mix, Thursday afternoon at the Alachua County Humane Society.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 11 10, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 2013 CAMPUS GARRETT BRUNOAlligator Contributing WriterGillian Lord, chair of the Spanish and Portuguese Studies department, told Rosetta Stone she was trained to hate the company because it was trying to put her out of a job. Her newest study is about to put that idea to the test. This semester, 21 students taking Beginning Spanish 1 at UF are voluntarily taking the course using Rosetta Stone, the language learning computer software, instead of going to class. things people say after asking me to say something in Spanish is, Does Rosetta Stone really work? Lord said. Lord received a $12,000 grant from UFs Humanities Scholarship Enhancement Fund to compare the test groups include students using only the software, students going to class using Rosetta Stone as a textbook supplement and students in a traditional class using the assigned textbook. Were not trying to eliminate beginning Spanish, Lord said. Its not going anywhere. Were just looking at what works and what doesnt. Students in the class-exempt section will be required to attend four meetings to assess their progress. Students in all sections will take mester, she said. My hunch is that there are things that [the Rosetta Stone students] will be able to accomplish very well, but when it comes to interpersonal interaction, they might not advance as well as the others, she said. Carlos Enrique Ibarra is the teaching assistant assigned to teach both the hybrid class using Rosetta Stone as the textbook supplement and the traditional class. Technology can be used in very effective ways, he said. If you compare how much both groups have learned so far, even though the [Rosetta Stone textbook class] seem to be at more ease speaking, they have learned much less. [The regular textbook students] are a little more scared. They feel a little more pressure, but they have learned a lot more. John Robinson, a second-year law student who is in the class-exempt section, said he feels accountable when sitting in class with a teacher and peers. Rosetta Stone is just a computer, so you dont feel that bad if you get it wrong, he said.Rosetta Stone language software used in Spanish classes THE LECTURE WILL BE HELD AT 7:30 P.M. TONIGHT. ELLEN VILLAFUERTEAlligator Contributing WriterWorld-renowned peace activist the Rev. Joan Brown Campbell will talk about religious tolerance and her life as an activist tonight at Santa Fe College. The lecture, sponsored by SFCs Humanities and Foreign Languages Department, is free and open to the public. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. and will be held at SFCs Fine Arts Hall, 3000 NW 83rd St. Parking at the college will also be free. Bill Little, department chair of the Humanities and Foreign Languages Department, said about 300 people are expected to attend the event. We are all truly honored to have this international speaker at our college, he said. This is a major event for our campus. Campbells accomplishments include having held local and to become a general secretary for the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA. She also holds 11 honorary doctorate degrees. Campbell is the director of the Department of Religion at the Chautauqua Institute in New York. SFC President Dr. Jackson Sasser said he looks forward to having Campbell talk about her message of religious tolerance. To understand humanity is to understand and respect the great religions of the world, and to have someone as distinguished as Joan Campbell to provide a better understanding of the central core of religion, which is compassion, is a positive experience, he said. Campbell will also talk about her Charter for Compassion, a document she co-authored promoting the restoration of compassion in the world, as well as tolerating differences in religion and ideology. Sasser said he agreed with the documents purpose. Thats what a public institution should be doing promoting understanding and tolerance in all religions, he said. Important parts of the community, such as colleges, should not be promoting one religion over another, or any religion, for that matter. So far, about 90,000 people have signed Campbells document online. When Campbell concludes her lecture tonight, Sasser, representing the SFC community, will sign the document on stage. When that charter is signed on behalf of SF College, Little already promote here in our community.Peace activist to speak at Santa Fe about religious toleranceLord

Matt Elam, former UF safety @ElamvsElo alligatorSports.orgVisit our website this weekend for coverage of UF mens and womens basketball, gymnastics, mens tennis and mens and womens swimming competitions. JOSH JURNOVOYAlligator Staff WriterFormer Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn accepted the same position with the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday afternoon. Gators special teams coordinator and linebackers coach D.J. Durkin was promoted to replace Quinn. Im happy for Dan and this oppor tunity, coach Will Muschamp said in a statement. Ive said before that I always encourage my staff when opportunities arise to take the next step in their career. Dans background is in the NFL and this is a great chance to go back to a place hes familiar with. Quinn previously served as the Seahawks defensive line coach for two years before coming to Florida. He rejoins Pete Carroll in Seattle after spending the past void left by former Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, who was hired as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday. The Gators ranked ninth in the nation in total defense in 2010 prior to Quinns arrival, allowing 306.5 yards per game. The following season, the unit surrendered just 299.5 yards per game, which was good for eighth in the country. with just 286.7 yards allowed per game Durkin, who has served as Floridas special teams coordinator and linebackers coach for the past three seasons, will continue to coach the linebackers in his new position. D.J. and I will run the defense, continuing the way that Dan and I did for the past two years, Muschamp said in the press release. We will look to add anmoving forward. The Gators are losing seven defensive starters from their 2012 team: defensive tackles Sharrif Floyd and Omar Hunter, safeties Matt Elam and Josh Evans and linebackers Jon Bostic, Jelani Jenkins and Lerentee McCray. turning starters and other underclassmen son to work with including cornerbacks Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson, defensive linemen Dominique Easley, Jonathan Bullard and Dante Fowler, and linebackers Antonio Morrison, Michael Taylor and Neiron Ball.

Facing No. 6 Kentucky on the road, Miller 5-of-7 shooting performance. again, dropping 11 points against No. 9 Tennessee. Florida lost each game, but coach Amanda Butler found another go-to scorer, something she expected Miller to become this season. Shes here because she is a scorer, Butler said. January, if you just start tracking people from the beginning of the season to where we are right now, is, hands down, our most improved player. Butler hopes Millers improvement continues when Florida faces South Carolina in the OConnell Center on Sunday at 1 p.m. The Gators lost two matchups to the Gamecocks last season, scoring a season-low 44 points in a home loss on Jan. 8. Entering Thursday, South Carolina again boasts one of the nations top defensive units. The Gamecocks are tied for 11th in the nation allowing just 0.72 points per possession. South Carolina ranks second only to Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference with that mark. Coach Dawn Staleys team is third in the country in scoring defense, limiting opponents to 47.1 points per contest. They are one of the best defensive teams not just in our conference but in the country, Butler said. Florida is preparing for another physical, low-scoring affair. Millers offensive production will be critical off the bench. the role coaches expected of her. She averaged tests. Freshman guard improving quicklyWOMENsS BasASKETBaALL LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterUF pressured Texas A&M defensively on Thursday night, and the Aggies folded. No. 10 Florida (13-2, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) used a 22-2 run to seal a 68-47 victory against Texas A&M in Reed Arena in College Station, Texas. We just knew on the road its really tough to come in here and get a win, junior Patric Young said. We knew we had to be focused on our concepts of moving the ball around and really locking down on Elston Turner, and we really did a good job of that.   Turner, the Aggies leading scorer with 17.1 points per game before Thursday, scored only 4 points on 1-of-10 shooting. In the senior guards last contest an 83-71 upset against Kentucky on Saturday he scored 40 points and made 14 of Give Scottie Wilbekin a lot of credit, coach Billy Donovan said. He did a heck of a job on Elston UF contained Texas A&M (12-4, 2-1 SEC) to 34 percent shooting. Before Thursdays game, the Aggies shot 45.8 per cent.

TRACK AND FIELD KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff WriterJunior Eddie Lovett was focusing on three things while setting the mens 55-meter hurdles. Head down, back parallel to the ground and looking at his feet. preliminary heat with a time of 7.17 at Thursdays Gator Invitational, hurdles coach Erin Tucker discussed his concerns with Lovetts start. He told me that my start wasnt as good, and I picked my head up too soon, Lovett said. My advantage what really gets the job done is my start and me in between (hurdles), so I just really focused on that for the Lovetts focus worked. with a time of 7.10 to break a 23-year-old Florida record, which Earl Diamond set in 1990 with a time of 7.15. Lovett also claimed his second straight individual title this season. Eddie Lovett, what can you say, coach Mike Holloway said. He had a phenomenal performance a new school record. Couldnt ask more from him today. Last year Lovett suffered a tear to his oblique that sidelined him for a majority of the indoor season. He also battled problems in his psoas muscle during the indoor season, which affected his posture during races. Still, Lovett said that hes much last two performances as the Gators head into their most challenging meet yet the Razorback Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark. These two meets were a good practice, Lovett said. Now its just basically getting it going like a steamroller. As you go, it gets better, and Ill be full speed by the time we get to [the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships]. Along with Lovetts victory, Florida had 11 wins at the Gator Invitational including 21 top-three Ill be honest with you, I think weve got some work to do on the sprinters, Holloway said. Overall, were in a good spot; I really liked what I saw. I just like this team as a whole. Theres good people, theyre hardworking and they really want to get better.

on [Turner] but their team was very good, Donovan said. We had a couple breakdowns here and there, but on the road, to come in like that was really impressive by our guys. Young scored 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting. The junior center also tallied three steals and pulled down seven rebounds. After missing Saturdays 74-52 road win against LSU in Baton Rouge, La., with a left ankle sprain, Mike Rosario scored a team-high 19 points on 7-of15 shooting. The redshirt senior guard the contests opening 7 minutes. Senior forward Erik Murphy recorded 16 points and grabbed seven boards. The Gators led by only one point with the Aggies to 1-of-16 shooting until the 16:16 mark in the second period. I thought we got a little lucky in the offensive rebounds that they didnt score on, Donovan said. Then we had a couple bad possessions on offense. Then we (Kenny) Boynton hit a three, Murphy hit a three, Patric got a couple three-point plays, and we opened up a pretty good lead. Although the Aggies outrebounded battle 16-11. With junior forward Casey Prather sidelined due to a high left ankle sprain, Donovan used a rotation of seven players. Four played through injuries. After Thursdays game, Donovan has a chance to earn win No. 400 as Floridas head coach on Saturday against No. 17 The key word for this year with [Donovan] has been resilience and per sistence through the adversity, through the injuries, the concussions, the sprained ankles, Young said. We didnt hang our heads, and weve had great results. wont be an issue for the banged-up Gators on Saturday. We trust our trainers in [Dave] Wer ner and Preston Greene that they are going to make sure we get ready for the game, Young said. (Were) not worried about our legs. A radio broadcast contributed to this report. But Miller has since become more effective. In four SEC games, she is averaging 8.5 points, which ranks fourth on the team and is tops among Floridas freshmen. Shes come a long, long way, Butler said. shes our most improved player. For Miller, the increased production stems from a self-assuredness that has developed throughout the season. Im getting more comfortable, Miller said. Coming from high school to college, its obviously a big change. Weve Weve played in tough games and made monumental changes to get better as a unit. The epitome of Millers development came late in regulation against Tennessee on Sunday. The Volunteers led 69-68 in the second half. Butler called a timeout following a missed jumper by Tennessees Isabelle Harrison and diagrammed a play the Gators work on tirelessly in practice. The play called for Miller to use a screen to take a shot from the elbow, an area Butler coined the money box. Miller did such, receiving the ball and sinking the shot to give the Gators a 70-69 advantage with 29 seconds remaining. Tennessees Bashaara Graves was fouled 16 seconds later. She made one free throw to tie the game, stripping Miller of her potential gamewinning shot. Coaches and teammates were impressed with the freshmans poise. come into her own, junior Vicky McIntyre said. Were just going to keep going to her as long as shes hot.
