Fight Injustice and Global Huthe Slaves hosted A Picture of Freedom, an interactive demonstration about the meaning of freedom, on the Plaza of the Americas. The demonstration, which lasted from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., kicked off Justice Week 2013, a six-day series of events to raise awareness in ing, which is the illegal practice of modern slavery, said Jessy John, vice president of FIGHT. ed Justice Week together in January 2012. Participants were asked to write what freedom meant to them on a small chalkboard before having their pictures taken with the message. Jordan Shannon, a 20-year-old UF history senior, wrote the right to free will for his photo. Shannon said he was glad to participate in the event. I learned a lot that I didnt know, he said.

Some engineers can go to Wall Street and become investment bankers, said the UF computer engineering junior. The opportunities that are open to me are so vast. Engineers had the highest starting salaries, making $61,913, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers survey for 2012 college graduates starting salaries. Computer science graduates were the next highest, followed by business and health science alumni. Paul Rocha, an undergraduate academic adviser for computer engineering students, said a rebounding economy has raised the demand for computer engineers. From mobile banking to apps that let consumers check weekly supermarket ads, computer engineers are getting a leg up in the technology industry. Last semester, UF computer engineering seniors received about two job offers each, Rocha said. Humanities and social sciences earn an average salary of $36,988, according to the survey. Stephanie Smith, a UF undergraduate coordinator and associate chair for the English department, said an engineering degree doesnt equal a successful job. English majors are increasingly being hired to translate the jargon prose of engineers into simpler terms, Smith said. You cant do any of the STEMs without being able to think and speak clearly, she said. Every big corporation has internal modes of communications that have to be accessible.

The One More Block campaign, led by Nightlife Navigators, aims to extend SNAP rides to one block north of West University Avenue. Cristian Arango, a 20-yearold history and political science junior and director of Nightlife Navigators, said the campaigns goal is to make walking safer in areas north of campus. It has been an issue for awhile, he said. We dont want innocent women who are students to get assaulted. We do not want to hear about tragedies. On Feb. 12, Student Senate will hear a resolution in support of the campaign. If approved by UF administrators, St. Augustine Catholic Church, Emerson Hall, Classroom Building 105, UF Hillel, and three fraternity houses: Pi Kappa Alpha, Delta Tau Delta and Delta Upsilon, will be designated pickup areas. Bob Miller, UF associate vice president of business affairs and economic development, said he was open to discussing the extension with student leaders. However, he said he had some concerns, including the issue of SNAP vans navigating off campus. Thats outside of the normal SNAP operations area, he said. And the locations just across the street from where we do provide service. Arango said the agency will continue to publicize the campaign. He said he hopes the extension will become a discussed topic during the Student Government elections on Feb. 19 and Feb. 20.

With student debt topping $1 trillion, student loans are no longer the exception, they are the norm, said Rohit Chopra, student loan mediator at the bureau. If students are hit with unexpected fees from products that they thought were going to be free, that will make it even tougher to pay back large student loan debt.

To get a better idea if these other terest of students, the bureau is asking students, families and on-camcomments about their experiences. We want to get an understanding of how schools go about making these agreements, Chopra said. The bureau is looking for input on what information schools share to students, what fees students are being charged when using these products and how schools set up marketing agreements. Comments can be submitted until March 18. Chopra said it was too soon to tell what would happen if the bureau found students are not getting good deals from college-endorsed banking products. Its important for students to know they have other options, Chopra said.

THE STAIR TOWER WAS BUILT IN THE 1970S. BEATRICE DUPUYAlligator Contributing WriterAs UF continues to expand, the older parts of campus have to keep up with the times. Rolfs Hall, completed in 1927, is part of UFs historic district. The halls stair tower, located behind Turlington Hall, is currently being repaired. The stair tower, unlike the rest of the building, was built in the late 1970s. Joe Garcia, project manager of the Architecture and Engineering Department of the Physical Plant Division, said only the exterior bricks of the tower are being replaced. All the existing bricks will be removed and replaced. People can use the stair tower, he said. What were repairing has no effect on the structural integrity of the stair tower. Garcia said the repair job is expected to cost $140,000. The repairs could take up to six weeks. Harold Barrand, associate director of the Architecture and Engineering Department of the Physical Plant Division, said the tower had become a safety issue because of the area. We didnt want bricks falling on people, Barrand said. As far as we know, we havent had any bricks fall off the historic building. university did not receive Public Education Capital Outlay funds, which are used for repair and maintenance of campus buildings. Garcia said every building, no matter the age, needs some type of work. Emergencies are emergencies, he said. The potential danger from the possibility of falling bricks caused the department to use an available maintenance fund. University historian Carl Van Ness said the building had previously housed the state plant board and the Agricultural Extension Service. It had county agents that were there to provide advice to farmers, he said. The state plant board was in charge if there was a problem with insect invasion. The building, Van Ness said, was designed with a collegiate gothic style common to American universities. The horticulture building was designed by university architect William Edwards. Van Ness said it is important to preserve the historic buildings on campus, even though it is expensive.

Preliminary numbers for Fall 2013 law school applications are down about 23 percent from Fall 2012, according to the Law School Admission Council. The UF Levin College of Law received 2,869 applications for Fall 2012, down from 3,201 for Fall 2011, Robert Jerry, dean of UF Law, said the decrease in the job market for new law graduates may have impacted the decline in applications. Additionally, the rise in tuition and student debt levels are impacting the number of applicants, according to the council. The current in-state tuition for 30 credit hours at UF Law is about $21,000, up from about $19,000 in 2011-2012.

I think the real issue is that people arent open-minded enough about types of jobs, she said. Law school is a great base for leadership training, and tons of lawyers go on to do something other than practicing law. Jerry is remaining positive, though he admits changes in the fect this recession has had on law It doesnt mean the need for new law graduates is going to disappear, he said.

The Parthenon Group, which conducted the four-month study, providing options for the creation, development and growth of online learning models. Currently, stakeholders and lawmakers continue to evaluate each option, including the proposal for an online state institution. A BOG staff member said with each option, the goal is to enhance the states global position in online education while setting the standard for online learning at Florida institutions. Every public college and university in Florida, except the newly created Florida Polytechnic University, has an independent online strategy. Charlie Mitchell, a UF assistant professor of theater and dance, said he believes the state should focus more on enhancing the online options for the new university instead of establishing another institution. As a professor teaching both a live lecture and an online section, he said students are losing the You cant be an educator and prefer online to live teaching because youre more in a position to be a content creator online rather than a class leader, Mitchell said. Catherine Emihovich, the director of the Center for Community Education and the former dean of UFs College of Education, shares Mitchells concerns. The online option may be theoretically cheaper but the quality of the education will be diminished, she said. The BOGs Strategic Planning Committee will meet this month to discuss how it can provide a world-class online program that prepares students for great careers, according to the BOG.

Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Have Joakim Noah and his fellow NBA Gators made a bigger impact than NFL Gators? See story, page 16. LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer During Floridas 78-64 win against Ole Miss on Saturday, senior guard Kenny Boynton and senior forward Erik Murphy fed off each others strengths. Murphy scored a team-high 19 points and Boynton racked up nine assists, tying his career best. Boynton assisted on four of Murphys seven shots and 10 of his 19 points. Boynton scored 9 points on 3-of-13 shooting against the Rebels but found Murphy, who had the hot hand, in the post and behind the arc. Murphy went 7-of-8 shooting and drilled 5 of his 6 three-point attempts. I wasnt hitting from the outside, but I tried to get my teammates involved on other plays, Boynton said. [Murphy has] done a great job of helping me out, knocking down the outside shots. Said Murphy: I just shoot when Im open. When I dont shoot when Im open, coach (Billy Donovan) gets mad. Boynton and Murphys synergy has been key this season for No. 2 Florida (18-2, 8-0 Southeastern Conference), which jumped two spots in this weeks AP poll for its highest ranking since Feb. 12, 2007. During SEC play, Boynton has helped Murphy get good looks at the basket. During the past eight games, Guard, forward thriving together David Carr / Alligator Staff Senior guard Kenny Boynton attempts a layup during Floridas 78-64 win against Ole Miss on Saturday in the OConnell Center. PHILLIP HEILMAN Alligator Staff Writer Lily Svete is everything and nothing you would want in a forward. She is intelligent. The junior is a double major in psychology and biology, planning on attending degrees. work before classes, practice and individual workouts dominate her schedule. Theres no distractions, Svete said. Finding the time to designate two hours and block it out, thats my trick. Coaches and teammates rave about her. In years where she has played less or scored less or by the stat sheet seemingly had less of a role, she still has always been an anchor on the team, the most trusted player and the hardest worker, coach Amanda the program, so were pretty excited about that. On the court, Svete has physical gifts few others can offer. At 6-foot-2, she is the second-tallest player on Floridas active roster. And she can shoot. Redshirt freshman Carlie Needles leads the team making a team-leading 45.5 percent of her threes. In Floridas 87-54 defeat of Alabama on Sunday, Svete connected on 4 of her 6 attempts from behind the arc. Three days prior, in a 69-64 loss to Missouri, Svete scored 9 points on 3-of-3 shooting from the three-point line. Her 21 points in the last two games is her highest-scoring two-game stretch since scoring 22 points combined against Savannah State and Central Michigan in late December. Yet the same intelligence that propels her often limits her. Forward shining in limited timeEND OF GREGULATION Florida is the best team in college basketof a national champion. second in the nation, cant be questioned. And theres no reason for Billy Donovan and his Still, UF making a run to the Final Four would be nearly unprecedented. In the past 10 years, only two Final Four teams have taken a higher percentage of their shots from beyond the arc than 2012-13 Florida. And only one of the past 40 Final Four participants has gotten to the free-throw line at a lower rate. Before I beat you over the head with numbers, heres a little context. KenPom, a haven for hoops and stats junkies like myself, ranks every Division I team by a number of metrics. The 2013 version of Florida differs from the past 10 years of Final Four participants in two major categories. goal attempts, or the percentage of a teams shots that come from beyond the arc. Floridas 40.9 percent ranks 26th nationally. Consistently, the national average is in the neighborhood of 33.3 percent. But, over the past 10 years, elite teams have traditionally relied on interior scoring. Only seven Final Four participants in the past 10 years have posted a mark higher than even 35 percent. Again, Florida is currently at 40.9. As I said, Id never advocate the Gators change their ways. Erik Murphy is shooting an unreal 51.2 percent from outside. If anything, he should be taking more threes, and Donovan has been stressing getting Murphy the ball when he has an open look. Donovan wants all of his shooters to take threes freely through a rough patch. Michael Frazier II is shooting 44.3 percent, so he needs to keep shooting. Kenny Boynton (35.1), Mike Rosario (35.7) and Scottie Wilbekin (38.3) are all capable shooters, too. As it is, Boynton is shooting less than he did last year, and Rosario is taking more twos than threes after doing the opposite in 2011-12. By limiting their long twos, the Gators still rank near the national average in percentage No. 2 Florida succeeding with unconventional formulaSEE GREG, PAGE 15 SEE SVETE, PAGE 15 SEE HOOPS, PAGE 15 UF Womens Bask etball Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca I wasnt hitting from the outside, but I tried to get my teammates involved on other plays.Kenny BoyntonUF guardPoll ResultsWill Florida baseball advance to a fourth straight College World Series this season?76% YES 24% NO63 total votes

14, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2013 CHUCK KINGSBURYAlligator Writer Dealing with injuries is part of the gig. Replacing production, however, isnt all that easy. In Floridas last two dual meets, it dealt with the losses of All-Americans Kytra Hunter and Alaina Johnson to injuries. But against No. 19 Arkansas last Friday, Florida (4-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) posted the nations second highest total with a 197.575 despite both gymnasts absence. The Gators set season-high Randy Stageberg pinned a 9.9 on beam to jump start the rotation. Coach Rhonda Faehn said Stagebergs performance was the seniors best showing this season. Finishing on balance beam at a road competition is a high-pressure situation, Faehn said. You always want your athletes to go out and compete aggressively no matter what happens, and they did that starting from Randy. Faehn applauded her gymroles while Johnson and Hunter fought through injuries during the last two meets. Johnson has been inactive since Jan. 18 with a stress reaction in her back. Faehn said the team is monitoring her situation on a weekly basis but fully expects her to be available in three weeks. Hunter, on the other hand, has a better outlook. Faehn expects Hunter to compete in all four events against Alabama on Friday at 7 p.m. in the OConnell Center. Hunter per formed exclusively on bars ver sus Arkansas due to a ligament strain in her ankle. Despite Hunters limitations with her ankle, Faehn suggested that the sophomore could have been called upon to compete in additional events if necessary. For [Hunter], its a matter of making sure and it is for every one of our gymnasts, theyre all battling things its a matter of making sure every meet that we are able to rest some while others step up, Faehn said. In spite of a limited lineup, the Gators posted scores of 49.450 respectively, against the Razor backs. Bridget Sloan earned the evenings beam title while Marissa King recorded a season-high 9.9. Marissa was very reminiscent of every single one of her routines she competed (in) last year, Faehn said. Faehn was pleased with the number of stuck landings registered against Arkansas. I know I have been saying that a lot, but really each meet it gets a little better and better, Sloan said. against ranked opponents scheduled before the SEC Championships begin on March 23 in Little Rock, Ark., Faehn wants her gymnasts dialed in. Looking into Fridays competition, our athletes know that our goal is to go out there and really only, once again, compete against ourselves, Faehn said. Obviously, Alabama will be there but we cannot focus on them or control what theyre going to do on Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffJunior Alaina Johnson performs her routine on the balance beam during Floridas 196.575-190.55 victory against Ball State on Jan. 4 in the OConnell Center.

Boynton has assisted on 7 of Mur phys 24 three-pointers and 31 of his 112 points. In eight SEC games, Boynton has averaged 4.3 assists 1.5 more than his career average. His assist-to-turnover ratio of 5.7 in conference play is the highest in the SEC. The Gators won the assists battle against the Rebels 23-5 on Saturday. Ultimately, Boynton was responsible for 31 of Floridas 78 points. understanding that he can really impact the game in a lot of different ways, Donovan said. Through experience, going through what hes going through, hes become a very, very good decision-maker. Hes made other people on the Murphy has averaged a teamhigh 14 points and shot an SECbest 57.1 percent from beyond the arc during league play. Missouri guard Earnest Ross 48.6 percent clip from three-point range is the next-best average in the confer ence. now, junior forward Will Yeguete said. [Donovan] really wants him to shoot the ball when hes open, and we all really want him to shoot the ball. I think hes doing a good job of taking open shots, and hes been making [them], so we just have to keep looking for him. Boynton and Murphy will look to keep No. 2 Floridas offense ville, Ark., to face Arkansas tonight at 7. The Razorbacks (13-8, 4-4 SEC) are No. 13 in the conference defensively, allowing 68.3 points per game. But Arkansas is a better scoring team at home, tallying 73 or more points 12 times and boasting a 12-1 record at Bud Walton Arena. Second-year coach Mike Ander sons Razorbacks have shot 47.3 percent at home but 41.5 percent on the road and at neutral sites. Those numbers are drastically different, Donovan said. Theres dence level, for those guys playing in Fayetteville. Saturdays box score incorrectly credited Boynton with an assist on who dribbled the ball twice and then been credited with the assist on the Svete struggles defensively at times, as she commonly is a step slow or a second late in reacting. She averages just 16.8 minutes per contest because when her shot isnt falling, her production slips. Lily sometimes is too smart because she thinks things out so much and analyzes and thats really been kind of a paralyzing, limiting thing for her, Butler said. Svete has been held scoreand scored less than four points on six other occasions. groove, she can score in bunches. Svete dropped a season-high 15 points in just 22 minutes against Savannah State on Dec. 20. She scored 14 points in 15 minutes against Troy on Dec. 4. said. Thats what Ive learned as a shooter and being here the dent you are, the easier it is to knock down shots. UF will need her to continue making shots down the stretch. As of Monday, the Gators were ference in scoring, averaging 67.8 points per contest. Despite the respectable ranking, UF struggles to put together two consistent halves of offense. Svete gives the Gators another scoring threat to help break the trend. We talk a lot about winning the battle of the paint, Butler said. It certainly makes the battle to your advantage when you have a shooter like Lily that makes defenders make decisions. Contact Phillip Heilman at of shots taken at the rim. Thats a big deal for UF, since it ranks second nationally by shooting 74 percent on shots at the rim. So nothing about UFs offense should change. Still, sustaining an offense rooted in The two teams that reached the Final Four shooting more threes than 2013 Florida were VCU in 2011 and Louisville in 2005. (Interestingly, former Donovan assistant Shaka Smart coached VCU, while Rick Pitino, Donovans mentor, coached Louisville.) In 2011, VCU hit 46.2 percent of its threes in a Sweet 16 win against FSU and 48 percent in an Elite 8 win against Kansas. It shot a pedestrian 36.4 percent from beyond the arc in the Final Four, and thus lost to Butler. In 2005, Louisville hit 42.3 percent of its threes in a Sweet 16 win against Washington and 39.3 percent in an Elite 8 win against West Virginia. It shot 30 percent in a Final Four loss to Illinois. So UF faces an uphill battle. Of course, the Gators can rely on the NCAAs best defense if and when things get rough from outside. But and this is the second point that sets Florida apart from the typical Final Four team the Gators have not been able to get to the free-throw line for easy points in 201213. Another KenPom metric is free throw atmultiplied by 100 to produce a national aver age usually around 37. Basically, it shows how often teams earn trips to the free-throw line. Right now, Florida ranks No. 308 nationally with a 29.7. In the past 10 years, only one Final Four team has posted a worse rate. In 2005, Illinois made the Final Four with a 28.8. Not coincidentally, the Illini are also fourth in the past 10 years in highest percentage of three-point shots. Teams shooting the ball from outside arent getting fouled and arent going to the line for easy points. Continuing the trend, Illinois shot 45 per cent beyond the arc in a Sweet 16 win against Wisconsin-Milwaukee, 45.7 percent in an Elite Eight win against Arizona and 40 percent in a Final Four win against aforementioned Louisville. It shot 30 percent from outside in a national title game loss to UNC. This isnt exactly groundbreaking stuff. Teams that rely on three pointers struggle when they cant hit three pointers. But the reason it is worth discussing is because a rough patch from outside is bound to happen eventually. Shooting from beyond the arc naturally has high variance swings happen with regularity. Maybe the Gators will stay hot, drilling three after three en route to a Final Four appearance and a national title. Or maybe they wont, and a dominant defense will pick up the slack and get Florida there anyway. Either way, 2012-13 Florida provides a test case, the likes of which has rarely succeeded in college basketball.

While everybody recovers from a blackout in New Orleans, the alligatorSports staff wants to take a moment to look at former Gators playing basketball and football. In which league do Gators make the biggest impact? Columnists Adam Pincus and Josh Jurnovoy tackle the question. Adam: Its all about the NFL. Maybe Im still experiencing a New Orleans hangover after spending time in the Big Easy during Super Bowl week, but Gators are all over the football landscape. The big names are obvious. You have Percy Harvin, the Pouncey twins and that Tim Tebow dude. 49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald recorded three tackles and a sack in Super Bowl XLVII. Ravens wide receiver Deonte Thompson was inactive for the game. Hell still get a ring. There were 26 active former Gators playing during Week 17. There are 10 former Billy D disciples on NBA ers, but no basketball player dictates media coverage from the bench. That will be the last Tebow reference, I promise. Josh: Sure, lets end the debate now if we are going to talk about media coverage. Tebow wins hands down. But Ill take Gator basketball if we are talking about impact in every sense other than what gets the most mentions on SportsCenter. Even if you believe Tebow hasnt received a fair chance in the NFL yet as I do, you cant few and far between. He had just 32 rushes and eight pass attempts in 2012. The only Gators in the NFL that Id say are playing at an elite level are the Pouncey twins, Janoris Jenkins, Joe Haden, Percy Harvin (whenever he happens to be healthy) and Aaron Hernandez. For a sport where active rosters are almost a fourth of the size of that of the NFL, it is clear that Gator basketball players are making greater proportional impact. Adam: Josh, you forgot Brandon Spikes and Will Hill. Im sure your mom banned you from their racy Twitter accounts, so thats probably why you didnt mention them. Were talking about impact. Who impacts their sport the most? Does it really matter that David Lee is having the best season out of any former Gators player if hes doing it for the Golden State Warriors? Hes averaging 19.4 points, 11.1 rebounds and four assists per game. Thats hard to do during an NBA 2K13 season. Too bad nobody has been paying attention. Lee, Chandler Parsons, Joakim Noah, and Al Horford are having the best seasons of any former Florida ballers. They all play either forward or center. In the NFL, these Gators are lining up at offensive line, wide receiver, cornerback, defensive line, linebacker and safety. When was the last time a former Gators point guard made any noise in the NBA ... Jason White Chocolate Williams? Josh: Im not sure why you are so eager for Will Hill to be included among the elite Gators in the NFL. Hill was suspended four games for violating the leagues substance abuse policy and recorded two or fewer tackles in six of the games in which he played. While Spikes has in coverage and has yet to make a Pro Bowl. Al Horford has already made two All-Star teams for the Hawks. This year, four other Gators will be represented at All-Star weekend Brad Beal and Chandler Parsons will be in the Rising Stars Game, and Joakim Noah and Lee will be in the All-Star Game. Lee, Noah and Horances equals the total Pro Bowl appearances of the 26 Gators in the NFL. The guards arent making the same impact, but the big men are doing as much to earn respect throughout the league as their NFL counterparts. Adam: As usual, you fail to grasp any humor thrown your way. I wasnt including Spikes or Hill. I was making fun of you. Returning to my point, UF football ranks fourth with 106 draftees from 1992-2011 and fourth with 3,463 starts from former players during that time. Floridas NBA players made 30 fewer starts during that span. No, I cant count that high, so dont ask. This means there have been far more Gators in the NFL. History has repeated itself with this latest batch of players on the gridiron and hardwood. Josh: Were not talking about which programs impact was bigger in 2011. Were in 2013. Admittedly, the bigger argument the NFL Gators have going for them is their impact at a multitude of positions whereas only the big men are producing on the basketball side. Beal was the Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month in January, shooting better than 50 percent from his stroke during his one season in Gainesville, but it didnt leave him once he did. If he can just stay somewhere between 40 and 50 percent going forward, he will break the trend of struggling Gator guards. Then, Florida will league that has a fraction of the All-Stars that football does. Ill take quality over quantity.

Some engineers can go to Wall Street and become investment bankers, said the UF computer engineering junior. The opportunities that are open to me are so vast. Engineers had the highest starting salaries, making $61,913, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers survey for 2012 college graduates starting salaries. Computer science graduates were the next highest, followed by business and health science alumni. Paul Rocha, an undergraduate academic adviser for computer engineering students, said a rebounding economy has raised the demand for computer engineers. From mobile banking to apps that let consumers check weekly supermarket ads, computer engineers are getting a leg up in the technology industry. Last semester, UF computer engineering seniors received about two job offers each, Rocha said. Humanities and social sciences earn an average salary of $36,988, according to the survey. Stephanie Smith, a UF undergraduate coordinator and associate chair for the English department, said an engineering degree doesnt equal a successful job. English majors are increasingly being hired to translate the jargon prose of engineers into simpler terms, Smith said.

The bureau is looking for input on what information schools share to students, what fees students are being charged when using these products and how schools set up marketing agreements. Comments can be submitted until March 18. Chopra said it was too soon to tell what would happen if the bureau found students are not getting good deals from college-endorsed banking products.

THE STAIR TOWER WAS BUILT IN THE 1970S. BEATRICE DUPUYAlligator Contributing WriterAs UF continues to expand, the older parts of campus have to keep up with the times. Rolfs Hall, completed in 1927, is part of UFs historic district. The halls stair tower, located behind Turlington Hall, is currently being repaired. The stair tower, unlike the rest of the building, was built in the late 1970s. Joe Garcia, project manager of the Architecture and Engineering Department of the Physical Plant Division, said only the exterior bricks of the tower are being replaced. All the existing bricks will be removed and replaced. People can use the stair tower, he said. What were repairing has no effect on the structural integrity of the stair tower. Garcia said the repair job is expected to cost $140,000. The repairs could take up to six weeks. Harold Barrand, associate director of the Architecture and Engineering Department of the Physical Plant Division, said the tower had become a safety issue because of the area. We didnt want bricks falling on people, Barrand said. As far as we know, we havent had any bricks fall off the historic building. university did not receive Public Education Capital Outlay funds, which are used for repair and maintenance of campus buildings. Garcia said every building, no matter the age, needs some type of work. Emergencies are emergencies, he said. The potential danger from the possibility of falling bricks caused the department to use an available maintenance fund. University historian Carl Van Ness said the building had previously housed the state plant board and the Agricultural Extension Service. It had county agents that were there to provide advice to farmers, he said. The state plant board was in charge if there was a problem with insect invasion. The building, Van Ness said, was designed with a collegiate gothic style common to American universities. The horticulture building was designed by university architect William Edwards. Van Ness said it is important to preserve the historic buildings on campus, even though it is expensive.

Preliminary numbers for Fall 2013 law school applications are down about 23 percent from Fall 2012, according to the Law School Admission Council. The UF Levin College of Law received 2,869 applications for Fall 2012, down from 3,201 for Fall 2011, Robert Jerry, dean of UF Law, said the decrease in the job market for new law graduates may have impacted the decline in applications. Additionally, the rise in tuition and student debt levels are impacting the number of applicants, according to the council. The current in-state tuition for 30 credit hours at UF Law is about $21,000, up from about $19,000 in 2011-2012.

But for me, this is what Im passionate about, and theres bound to be jobs somewhere. Christina Stine, a 22-year-old at University of Richmond School of Law, is also optimistic about the future. I think the real issue is that people arent open-minded enough about types of jobs, she said. Law school is a great base for leadership training, and tons of lawyers go on to do something other than practicing law. Jerry is remaining positive, though he admits changes in the fect this recession has had on law It doesnt mean the need for new law graduates is going to disappear, he said.

Currently, stakeholders and lawmakers continue to evaluate each option, including the proposal for an online state institution. A BOG staff member said with each option, the goal is to enhance the states global position in online education while setting the standard for online learning at Florida institutions. Every public college and university in Florida, except the newly created Florida Polytechnic University, has an independent online strategy. Charlie Mitchell, a UF assistant professor of theater and dance, said he believes the state should focus more on enhancing the online options for the new university instead of establishing another institution. As a professor teaching both a live lecture and an online section, he said students are losing the You cant be an educator and prefer online to live teaching because youre more in a position to be a content creator online rather than a class leader, Mitchell said. Catherine Emihovich, the director of the Center for Community Education and the former dean of UFs College of Education, shares Mitchells concerns. The online option may be theoretically cheaper but the quality of the education will be diminished, she said. The BOGs Strategic Planning Committee will meet this month to discuss how it can provide a world-class online program that prepares students for great careers, according to the BOG.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Poll QuestionWhat do you view as No. 2 Floridas biggest weakness? Vote online at alligatorSports.org.Have Joakim Noah and his fellow NBA Gators made a bigger impact than NFL Gators? See story, page 16. LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer During Floridas 78-64 win against Ole Miss on Saturday, senior guard Kenny Boynton and senior forward Erik Murphy fed off each others strengths. Murphy scored a team-high 19 points and Boynton racked up nine assists, tying his career best. Boynton assisted on four of Murphys seven shots and 10 of his 19 points. Boynton scored 9 points on 3-of-13 shooting against the Rebels but found Murphy, who had the hot hand, in the post and behind the arc. Murphy went 7-of-8 shooting and drilled 5 of his 6 three-point attempts. I wasnt hitting from the outside, but I tried to get my teammates involved on other plays, Boynton said. [Murphy has] done a great job of helping me out, knocking down the outside shots. Said Murphy: I just shoot when Im open. When I dont shoot when Im open, coach (Billy Donovan) gets mad. Boynton and Murphys synergy has been key this season for No. 2 Florida (18-2, 8-0 Southeastern Conference), which jumped two spots in this weeks AP poll for its highest ranking since Feb. 12, 2007. During SEC play, Boynton has helped Murphy get good looks at the basket. During the past eight games, Guard, forward thriving together David Carr / Alligator Staff Senior guard Kenny Boynton attempts a layup during Floridas 78-64 win against Ole Miss on Saturday in the OConnell Center. PHILLIP HEILMAN Alligator Staff Writer Lily Svete is everything and nothing you would want in a forward. She is intelligent. The junior is a double major in psychology and biology, planning on attending degrees. work before classes, practice and individual workouts dominate her schedule. Theres no distractions, Svete said. Finding the time to designate two hours and block it out, thats my trick. Coaches and teammates rave about her. In years where she has played less or scored less or by the stat sheet seemingly had less of a role, she still has always been an anchor on the team, the most trusted player and the hardest worker, coach Amanda the program, so were pretty excited about that. On the court, Svete has physical gifts few others can offer. At 6-foot-2, she is the second-tallest player on Floridas active roster. And she can shoot. Redshirt freshman Carlie Needles leads the team making a team-leading 45.5 percent of her threes. In Floridas 87-54 defeat of Alabama on Sunday, Svete connected on 4 of her 6 attempts from behind the arc. Three days prior, in a 69-64 loss to Missouri, Svete scored 9 points on 3-of-3 shooting from the three-point line. Her 21 points in the last two games is her highest-scoring two-game stretch since scoring 22 points combined against Savannah State and Central Michigan in late December. Yet the same intelligence that propels her often limits her. Forward shining in limited timeEND OF GREGULATION Florida is the best team in college basketof a national champion. second in the nation, cant be questioned. And theres no reason for Billy Donovan and his Still, UF making a run to the Final Four would be nearly unprecedented. In the past 10 years, only two Final Four teams have taken a higher percentage of their shots from beyond the arc than 2012-13 Florida. And only one of the past 40 Final Four participants has gotten to the free-throw line at a lower rate. Before I beat you over the head with numbers, heres a little context. KenPom, a haven for hoops and stats junkies like myself, ranks every Division I team by a number of metrics. The 2013 version of Florida differs from the past 10 years of Final Four participants in two major categories. goal attempts, or the percentage of a teams shots that come from beyond the arc. Floridas 40.9 percent ranks 26th nationally. Consistently, the national average is in the neighborhood of 33.3 percent. But, over the past 10 years, elite teams have traditionally relied on interior scoring. Only seven Final Four participants in the past 10 years have posted a mark higher than even 35 percent. Again, Florida is currently at 40.9. As I said, Id never advocate the Gators change their ways. Erik Murphy is shooting an unreal 51.2 percent from outside. If anything, he should be taking more threes, and Donovan has been stressing getting Murphy the ball when he has an open look. Donovan wants all of his shooters to take threes freely through a rough patch. Michael Frazier II is shooting 44.3 percent, so he needs to keep shooting. Kenny Boynton (35.1), Mike Rosario (35.7) and Scottie Wilbekin (38.3) are all capable shooters, too. As it is, Boynton is shooting less than he did last year, and Rosario is taking more twos than threes after doing the opposite in 2011-12. By limiting their long twos, the Gators still rank near the national average in percentage No. 2 Florida succeeding with unconventional formulaSEE GREG, PAGE 15 SEE SVETE, PAGE 15 SEE HOOPS, PAGE 15 UF W omens Bask etball Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca I wasnt hitting from the outside, but I tried to get my teammates involved on other plays.Kenny BoyntonUF guardPoll ResultsWill Florida baseball advance to a fourth straight College World Series this season?76% YES 24% NO63 total votes

But against No. 19 Arkansas last Friday, Florida (4-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) posted the nations second highest total with a 197.575 despite both gymnasts absence. The Gators set season-high Randy Stageberg pinned a 9.9 on beam to jump start the rotation. Coach Rhonda Faehn said Stagebergs performance was the seniors best showing this season. Finishing on balance beam at a road competition is a high-pressure situation, Faehn said. You always want your athletes to go out and compete aggressively no matter what happens, and they did that starting from Randy. Faehn applauded her gymroles while Johnson and Hunter fought through injuries during the last two meets. Johnson has been inactive since Jan. 18 with a stress reaction in her back. Faehn said the team is monitoring her situation on a weekly basis but fully expects her to be available in three weeks. Hunter, on the other hand, has a better outlook. Faehn expects Hunter to compete in all four events against Alabama on Friday at 7 p.m. in the OConnell Center. Hunter per formed exclusively on bars ver sus Arkansas due to a ligament strain in her ankle. Despite Hunters limitations with her ankle, Faehn suggested that the sophomore could have been called upon to compete in additional events if necessary. For [Hunter], its a matter of making sure and it is for every one of our gymnasts, theyre all battling things its a matter of making sure every meet that we are able to rest some while others step up, Faehn said. In spite of a limited lineup, the Gators posted scores of 49.450 respectively, against the Razor backs. Bridget Sloan earned the evenings beam title while Marissa King recorded a season-high 9.9. Marissa was very reminiscent of every single one of her routines she competed (in) last year, Faehn said. Faehn was pleased with the number of stuck landings registered against Arkansas. I know I have been saying that a lot, but really each meet it gets a little better and better, Sloan said. against ranked opponents scheduled before the SEC Championships begin on March 23 in Little Rock, Ark., Faehn wants her gymnasts dialed in. Looking into Fridays competition, our athletes know that our goal is to go out there and really only, once again, compete against ourselves, Faehn said. Obviously, Alabama will be there but we cannot focus on them or control what theyre going to do on Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffJunior Alaina Johnson performs her routine on the balance beam during Floridas 196.575-190.55 victory against Ball State on Jan. 4 in the OConnell Center.

Boynton has assisted on 7 of Mur phys 24 three-pointers and 31 of his 112 points. In eight SEC games, Boynton has averaged 4.3 assists 1.5 more than his career average. His assist-to-turnover ratio of 5.7 in conference play is the highest in the SEC. The Gators won the assists battle against the Rebels 23-5 on Saturday. Ultimately, Boynton was responsible for 31 of Floridas 78 points. understanding that he can really impact the game in a lot of different ways, Donovan said. Through experience, going through what hes going through, hes become a very, very good decision-maker. Hes made other people on the Murphy has averaged a teamhigh 14 points and shot an SECbest 57.1 percent from beyond the arc during league play. Missouri guard Earnest Ross 48.6 percent clip from three-point range is the next-best average in the confer ence. now, junior forward Will Yeguete said. [Donovan] really wants him to shoot the ball when hes open, and we all really want him to shoot the ball. I think hes doing a good job of taking open shots, and hes been making [them], so we just have to keep looking for him. Boynton and Murphy will look to keep No. 2 Floridas offense ville, Ark., to face Arkansas tonight at 7. The Razorbacks (13-8, 4-4 SEC) are No. 13 in the conference defensively, allowing 68.3 points per game. But Arkansas is a better scoring team at home, tallying 73 or more points 12 times and boasting a 12-1 record at Bud Walton Arena. Second-year coach Mike Ander sons Razorbacks have shot 47.3 percent at home but 41.5 percent on the road and at neutral sites. Those numbers are drastically different, Donovan said. Theres dence level, for those guys playing in Fayetteville. Saturdays box score incorrectly credited Boynton with an assist on who dribbled the ball twice and then been credited with the assist on the Svete struggles defensively at times, as she commonly is a step slow or a second late in reacting. She averages just 16.8 minutes per contest because when her shot isnt falling, her production slips. Lily sometimes is too smart because she thinks things out so much and analyzes and thats really been kind of a paralyzing, limiting thing for her, Butler said. Svete has been held scoreand scored less than four points on six other occasions. groove, she can score in bunches. Svete dropped a season-high 15 points in just 22 minutes against Savannah State on Dec. 20. She scored 14 points in 15 minutes against Troy on Dec. 4. said. Thats what Ive learned as a shooter and being here the dent you are, the easier it is to knock down shots. UF will need her to continue making shots down the stretch. As of Monday, the Gators were ference in scoring, averaging 67.8 points per contest. Despite the respectable ranking, UF struggles to put together two consistent halves of offense. Svete gives the Gators another scoring threat to help break the trend. We talk a lot about winning the battle of the paint, Butler said. It certainly makes the battle to your advantage when you have a shooter like Lily that makes defenders make decisions. Contact Phillip Heilman at of shots taken at the rim. Thats a big deal for UF, since it ranks second nationally by shooting 74 percent on shots at the rim. So nothing about UFs offense should change. Still, sustaining an offense rooted in The two teams that reached the Final Four shooting more threes than 2013 Florida were VCU in 2011 and Louisville in 2005. (Interestingly, former Donovan assistant Shaka Smart coached VCU, while Rick Pitino, Donovans mentor, coached Louisville.) In 2011, VCU hit 46.2 percent of its threes in a Sweet 16 win against FSU and 48 percent in an Elite 8 win against Kansas. It shot a pedestrian 36.4 percent from beyond the arc in the Final Four, and thus lost to Butler. In 2005, Louisville hit 42.3 percent of its threes in a Sweet 16 win against Washington and 39.3 percent in an Elite 8 win against West Virginia. It shot 30 percent in a Final Four loss to Illinois. So UF faces an uphill battle. Of course, the Gators can rely on the NCAAs best defense if and when things get rough from outside. But and this is the second point that sets Florida apart from the typical Final Four team the Gators have not been able to get to the free-throw line for easy points in 201213. Another KenPom metric is free throw atmultiplied by 100 to produce a national aver age usually around 37. Basically, it shows how often teams earn trips to the free-throw line. Right now, Florida ranks No. 308 nationally with a 29.7. In the past 10 years, only one Final Four team has posted a worse rate. In 2005, Illinois made the Final Four with a 28.8. Not coincidentally, the Illini are also fourth in the past 10 years in highest percentage of three-point shots. Teams shooting the ball from outside arent getting fouled and arent going to the line for easy points. Continuing the trend, Illinois shot 45 per cent beyond the arc in a Sweet 16 win against Wisconsin-Milwaukee, 45.7 percent in an Elite Eight win against Arizona and 40 percent in a Final Four win against aforementioned Louisville. It shot 30 percent from outside in a national title game loss to UNC. This isnt exactly groundbreaking stuff. Teams that rely on three pointers struggle when they cant hit three pointers. But the reason it is worth discussing is because a rough patch from outside is bound to happen eventually. Shooting from beyond the arc naturally has high variance swings happen with regularity. Maybe the Gators will stay hot, drilling three after three en route to a Final Four appearance and a national title. Or maybe they wont, and a dominant defense will pick up the slack and get Florida there anyway. Either way, 2012-13 Florida provides a test case, the likes of which has rarely succeeded in college basketball.

While everybody recovers from a blackout in New Orleans, the alligatorSports staff wants to take a moment to look at former Gators playing basketball and football. In which league do Gators make the biggest impact? Columnists Adam Pincus and Josh Jurnovoy tackle the question. Adam: Its all about the NFL. Maybe Im still experiencing a New Orleans hangover after spending time in the Big Easy during Super Bowl week, but Gators are all over the football landscape. The big names are obvious. You have Percy Harvin, the Pouncey twins and that Tim Tebow dude. 49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald recorded three tackles and a sack in Super Bowl XLVII. Ravens wide receiver Deonte Thompson was inactive for the game. Hell still get a ring. There were 26 active former Gators playing during Week 17. There are 10 former Billy D disciples on NBA ers, but no basketball player dictates media coverage from the bench. That will be the last Tebow reference, I promise. Josh: Sure, lets end the debate now if we are going to talk about media coverage. Tebow wins hands down. But Ill take Gator basketball if we are talking about impact in every sense other than what gets the most mentions on SportsCenter. Even if you believe Tebow hasnt received a fair chance in the NFL yet as I do, you cant few and far between. He had just 32 rushes and eight pass attempts in 2012. The only Gators in the NFL that Id say are playing at an elite level are the Pouncey twins, Janoris Jenkins, Joe Haden, Percy Harvin (whenever he happens to be healthy) and Aaron Hernandez. For a sport where active rosters are almost a fourth of the size of that of the NFL, it is clear that Gator basketball players are making greater proportional impact. Adam: Josh, you forgot Brandon Spikes and Will Hill. Im sure your mom banned you from their racy Twitter accounts, so thats probably why you didnt mention them. Were talking about impact. Who impacts their sport the most? Does it really matter that David Lee is having the best season out of any former Gators player if hes doing it for the Golden State Warriors? Hes averaging 19.4 points, 11.1 rebounds and four assists per game. Thats hard to do during an NBA 2K13 season. Too bad nobody has been paying attention. Lee, Chandler Parsons, Joakim Noah, and Al Horford are having the best seasons of any former Florida ballers. They all play either forward or center. In the NFL, these Gators are lining up at offensive line, wide receiver, cornerback, defensive line, linebacker and safety. When was the last time a former Gators point guard made any noise in the NBA ... Jason White Chocolate Williams? Josh: Im not sure why you are so eager for Will Hill to be included among the elite Gators in the NFL. Hill was suspended four games for violating the leagues substance abuse policy and recorded two or fewer tackles in six of the games in which he played. While Spikes has in coverage and has yet to make a Pro Bowl. Al Horford has already made two All-Star teams for the Hawks. This year, four other Gators will be represented at All-Star weekend Brad Beal and Chandler Parsons will be in the Rising Stars Game, and Joakim Noah and Lee will be in the All-Star Game. Lee, Noah and Horances equals the total Pro Bowl appearances of the 26 Gators in the NFL. The guards arent making the same impact, but the big men are doing as much to earn respect throughout the league as their NFL counterparts. Adam: As usual, you fail to grasp any humor thrown your way. I wasnt including Spikes or Hill. I was making fun of you. Returning to my point, UF football ranks fourth with 106 draftees from 1992-2011 and fourth with 3,463 starts from former players during that time. Floridas NBA players made 30 fewer starts during that span. No, I cant count that high, so dont ask. This means there have been far more Gators in the NFL. History has repeated itself with this latest batch of players on the gridiron and hardwood. Josh: Were not talking about which programs impact was bigger in 2011. Were in 2013. Admittedly, the bigger argument the NFL Gators have going for them is their impact at a multitude of positions whereas only the big men are producing on the basketball side. Beal was the Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month in January, shooting better than 50 percent from his stroke during his one season in Gainesville, but it didnt leave him once he did. If he can just stay somewhere between 40 and 50 percent going forward, he will break the trend of struggling Gator guards. Then, Florida will league that has a fraction of the All-Stars that football does. Ill take quality over quantity.
