Alligator WriterA UF student was arrested early Saturday morning after she allegedly stabbed her roommates door with a knife and threatened to kill her. Gainesville Police charged Jessica Gordon, 21, of 612 NE 10th Ave., with aggravated assault and simple battery, according to a GPD arrest report. The incident started at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday when Gordon returned home with her roommates from a club, said GPD Earlier in the night, Gordon saw her exboyfriend dancing with another woman, Tobias said. When Gordon returned home, she wanted to go see him. Sarah Margio, one of Gordons roommates, didnt want Gordon to drive because she had too much to drink, so she called Gordons current boyfriend to pick her up, Tobias said. Gordon, however, left anyway but returned 10 minutes later. Tobias said she went back inside and started banging on Margios door, accusing Margio of ruining her relationship with her current boyfriend, Tobias said. When Margio opened her door, Gordon pushed her to the ground. Margio then ran back into her room and locked the door, Tobias said. Gordon then grabbed a knife from the kitchen and started stabbing the door, yelling I have a knife, and I am going to kill you to Margio, Tobias said. she intended to use the knife to pick Margios lock to speak with her, according to the report. Gordon added she only threatened Police arrested Gordon and booked her into the Alachua County Jail on Sunday afternoon. She was released at about 1 p.m. Monday on her own recognizance. Margio declined to comment. Gordon couldnt be reached for comment. Tobias said Margio wanted to withdraw the complaint against Gordon, but because she committed a felony, GPD couldnt drop the charges.

The Q-and-A segment went without a hitch, as did several competitions including a swimand an eveningwear segment. While the judges were tabulating the results backstage, Sabor Latino took the stage for a surprise performance when the Phillips Center lost power. the performance. Once we realized the power wasnt going to come back on, we quickly evacuated the building, said Matt Cox, the operations director for University of Florida Performing Arts. UPD arrived to make sure people evacuated safely. The audience then stood outside in the rain. Dance Marathon members raised morale by pulling up a car, blaring a mix through the stereo and performing a choreographed dance. The cause of the power outage could not be determined, but the generator provided emergency lighting for the remaining audience members to gather in the lobby of the the double staircase while winners and runners-up were announced.

Alligator Contributing WriterA sense of excitement hung in the air as Idylwild Elementary a tour of their renewed school. Over the weekend, volunteers with Project Makeover worked to beautify the school, painting murals on the school walls and cleaning up the grounds. Principal Daniel Ferguson said because his schools grade jumped from a D to a B last year, he wanted to reward his students with a surprise: a new playground. It symbolizes a place where the kids can just simply let loose and have fun, he said. About 80 percent of Idylwilds 676 students are on the free and reduced lunch program, said Kelley Kostamo, partnership specialist for Alachua County Public Schools. The improved grade motivated the school to raise money for the new playground, which cost about $21,000, Ferguson said.Project Makeover revamps Idylwild ElementarySEE MAKEOVER, PAGE 4

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 ABOUT 700 UF STUDENTS APPLIED TO MED SCHOOL. JENSEN WERLEYAlligator Contributing WriterA survey released last week by Kaplan Test Prep shows that only 32 percent of medical school students plan to go into general health care, while the other 68 percent plans to have a specialization. for premed students, said Amjed Saffarini, vice president of graduate programs at Kaplan. Russell Schaffer, senior communications manager for Kaplan, said 713 students from UF applied to med school last year. However, there is still a shortage of 65,000 doctors. Saffarini said there are more people growing older who need more health care. He also said the Affordable Health Care Act brings in about 30 million people, who put additional strain on the system. Also, current doctors are heading to retirement, leaving open positions. He said more doctors are choosing specialties. In addition to new changes such as the Affordable Health Care Act, there have also been recent changes to the MCAT. Safarini said changes to the positions left by the shortage. If students are learning harder sciences, then they might be better prepared and can get through school faster, he said. Med school can be three years instead of four.There is a shortage of doctors in the US, new survey showsLOCAL FATEMAH ALBADERAlligator Contributing WriterMonkey see, monkey do. But for four days, Wendell, a brown capuchin monkey, had to rely on his hands and nose after he was found temporarily blind Wednesday at the Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary. Sara Smith, an assistant to the sanctuary director, said when sanctuary staff members tried to give Wendell a piece of popcorn, he was unresponsive. He went blind after he was self-attacking, which is a result of diabetic neuropathy, Smith said. On Monday, a veterinarian found Wendells blood pressure and glucose level were too high, causing his blood vessels to tighten and constrict his eyes, said Kari Bagnall, the sanctuarys founder. Bagnall said sanctuary staff members worked through the weekend to remodel Wendells habitat to make it easier for him to move around because of his limited eyesight. On Sunday, however, workers made a surprising discovery: Wendell regained his sight. When his blood pressure and glucose level went down, he could see again, Bagnall said. Now, sanctuary staff are watching Wendells glucose levels, so he wont go blind again. If it does happen again, and his blood vessels rupture, it could be irreversible, said Nicole Villella, a veterinary assistant who has cared for Wendell for a year. caution. If that happens again, I dont want him to be blind and then fall, Bagnall said.Monkey regains vision in sanctuary GARRETT BRUNOAlligator Contributing WriterUF criminology sophomore Brett Helms made the mistake of turning on his wipers to remove the thick layer of yellow particles that covered his windshield. Breathing in at just the wrong time, Helms let out a loud sneeze. The culprit: pollen. I have horrible allergies, Helms, 19, said. So having that happen made it worse for the rest of the day. I literally just stopped at the store and bought a pack of Claritin on my way to school. For many students and residents of Gainesville, late February means the beginning of pollen season and allergies. Dr. Shih-Wen Huang, the head of the allergy clinic at Shands at UF, said pollen tends to stay in the air when it is dry outside and humidity is low. The weather pretty much determines the amount of pollen in the air, Huang said. The sources, though, include a total of about 14 different trees that could produce these pollens. The most common perpetrators of pollen production in Gainesville are maple, oak, pine and cedar trees, Huang said. Huang said treatment of allergies possible to control. I just wish I could stop blowing my nose, Helms said.Pollen leaves some under the weatherHuang

LAUREN ACTONAlligator Contributing WriterDuring a talk at UF, an Indonesian sweatshop worker said he was threatened with death by factory owners for demanding severance pay for him and his coworkers. Aslam Hidayat worked at the PT Kizone factory for Adidas. Adidas products are high quality, but the management is not, he said. Garrett Strain, the national organizer for United Students Against Sweatshops, visited UF Monday with Hidagat and another factory worker in an effort to get UF to cut its contract with Adidas. UF sells Gator Adidas clothing. Adidas, the second largest sports apparel provider in the world, brought in $8.21 billion in gally-owed severance pay to 2,800 PT Kizone workers, according to the Badidas Campaign and Worker Tour. Slain said UF was just one of many stops he has made in the Badidas Campaign, which has been traveling to various college campuses to get them to cut their contract with Adidas. He said so far, this tour has been a success. Six universities, including Cornell University, the University of Washington and Georgetown University, have already agreed to cut each of their contracts. Theresa Faleti, a 20-year-old family, youth and community sciences junior, is a member of the African Student Union and attended the meeting in Ustler Hall. I plan on raising awareness by sharing it with my organization and going to Tigert Hall to present [UFs] president with a letter, Faleti said.Former sweatshop worker urges UF to cut Adidas contractStudents were excited for the new slideThey said it couldnt be done, and we just pushed through, Ferguson said. I kept asking everybody, Just do what you can; do what you can, and it came together. For the last six years, Project selected an Alachua County elementary school to renovate, said Ashley Podoll, executive director of Project Makeover Idylwild Elementary. a renovated elementary school did its own fundraising. They knew what it was that they wanted, and they knew that it was out of Makeovers price range, Kostamo said. That was what their dream project really was. The Gainesville Womans Club made the largest donation, said Fer guson. Precision Playgrounds Co., a Jacksonville-based playground construction company, contributed. Brian BeauPre, playground site supervisor, said he and his co-workers were proud to take part. In 20 years of construction, a 5-year-old shows more appreciation for what we do than most homeowners or builders, he said. Many students said they looked forward to playing on the playgrounds slide, including 7-year-old second grader Isaiah Boyd. Its awesome and fun, he said.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Elise Giordano / Alligator StaffBrains and Beauty LIFESTYLE BETHANY SCHUSTERAlligator Contributing WriterPill bottles arent living up to their promises. Its like a foot long thats only 11 inches, Paul Doering said. Doering, a distinguished service professor from UFs College of Pharmacy, said recent information on dietary supplement labels is both disappointing and unacceptable. Some vitamin D labels arent living up to their potency expectations. Labels promised a particular percentage of strength, but the pills Some provided as little as 9 or as much as 140 percent of its claimed potency, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association. The association published its results on dietary supplements last week. Although companies creating and supplying dietary supplements are not required to comply with Food and Drug Administration guidelines, companies may choose to meet the standards of the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention for a seal of approval and trustwor thiness. USP is a nongovernmental organization that provides standards for purity and potency of pharmaceutical products. It requires compounded pills to contain 90 to 110 per cent of the active ingredient. The vitamin D pills the researchers studied werent up to USPs standards. One of the things you expect when you buy any kind of medicinal product, no matter where it comes from, you expect it to be up to its labeled potency, Doering said He said even though vitamin D is not as potentially toxic as a narcotic pain reliever or cancer drugs, inaccurate potency labeling is intolerable. Strength or effectiveness of a pill may diminish over time due to heat, light or moisture, Doering said. But there are no variables that explain pills gaining strength to make some supplements about 40 percent of their original claim. I can assure you that the tablet or capsule wasnt gaining potency as it sat there on the shelf, which leads me to believe that when it went out the door of the manufacturing plant, the stuff was super potent, Doering said. There is always potential for a dietary supplement or vitamin to interact adversely with medicines. Student Health Care Center Marketing Coordinator Catherine Seemann urged students to not only look for USPs stamp of approval on any supplement but also to ask their doctors or pharmacists before they take it. Its extremely important to disclose that information to your health care provider, she said. When it comes to dietary supplements, using a healthy dose of skepticism will lead you to the promise land, Doering said.Students may find Vitamin D pills hard to swallowDoering

Mondays question: Do you think gun laws should be stricter? 51% YES 49% NO107 TOTAL VOTES To the liberal activist group Progress New Mexico, Eric Szeman and Diane Avila represent evil, greedy capitalists who exploit their workers by refusing to comply with the city of Albuquerques minimum-wage increase. To others, Szeman and Avila are just small business owners trying to make ends meet while running the Route 66 Malt Shop. If the owners were to comply with the citys minimum wage increase, Szeman argues, they would have to close down the business and lay off 12 employees. The minimum wage became the topic of national attention when President Barack Obama declared in his State of the Union address the government would raise the federal minimum wage to $9.00 an hour. Under the current minimum wage, the president argued, a full-time minimum wage employee still earns below the poverty line, and a change in this policy would lift millions out of poverty. But would it really? A 1999 study by economists David Neumark, Mark Schweitzer and William Wascher found increases in the minimum wage lead to more poverty. The authors conclude minimum wage increases do, no doubt, help some families escape poverty; but the employment losses associated with a higher minimum also appear to cause some families to fall into poverty. In other words, any gains experienced by individuals in minimum wage jobs are outweighed by the increase in unemployment that results from businesses not being able to hire and/or lay off workers to compensate for the higher wages. A 2012 Cato Institute report cited a study from 2010, which found when the federal government increased the minimum wage from $5.15 to $7.25, only 15.8 percent of the workers who were expected to gain from it lived in poor households. This occurs because many of the lowskilled workers who are employed in minimum wage jobs are second or third earners living in households with incomes well above the poverty line. Other studies have shown that the minimum wage has an adverse effect on teenagers, especially young minorities. Furthermore, if employers try to avoid laying off workers, the costs of minimum wage increases are carried by consumers with higher prices. Because a higher share of a lowincome individuals earnings is spent on necessities such as food, its hard to see how an increase in food prices help out poor people. But for some progressive do-gooders, the economic realities of the minimum wage play no role in deciding whether we should keep increasing it. For Pat Davis, executive director of Progress New Mexico, the Route 66 Malt Shop owners failure to comply with the local minimum wage law amounts to stealing from their workers. Although a great example of hyperbole, Davis fails to mention that without Szeman and Avilas entrepreneurship, many of these employees would be out of work and are only entitled to the wage voluntarily agreed upon when they were hired. Indeed, according to Szeman, his employees signed a contract agreeing to work at their old wage. Furthermore, when you factor in tips, Szeman and Avila argue they make less than their employees, having to reinvest their If the minimum wage is increased again, there will be more Route 66 Malt Shops, more unhappy small business owners and more people without jobs. But at least we feel good about ourselves. Justin Hayes is pursuing a masters degree in Political Communication. His column usually appears on Wednesdays.Disobeying wage increase: Good or greed?Fail Whale: The Onion stepped on some toesWhere do we draw the lines of comedy? Do we cross them when a satirical news publication calls a 9-yearold girl the C-word? Last night, during the Oscars ceremony, The Onion tweeted: Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhane Wallis is kind of a [four-letter word that begins with C], right? By 1 a.m. Monday, dozens of tweets per second were being posted, virtually all of them expressing contempt, incredulity or outrage, reported USA Today. A comedy website tweeted something more outrageous than they normally do, and people reacted accordingly. @TheOnion Identify the writer. Let him defend that abhorrent verbal attack of a child. You call it humor I call it horrendous, wrote The Wire star Wendell Pierce, who also demanded the site apologize. There seemed to be few people online defending the website for doing its job.

After being up for an hour, the backlash gathered, and the tweet was deleted, wrote BuzzFeeds Kate Aurthur. Was about someone like Anne Hathaway? mentary on the many different types of hate Hathaway receives, for some reason. But really, what else are we supposed to expect from The Onion? Right now, you can read an article written by Daniel Day-Lewis titled While Im Glad I Won, I Personally Believe Abraham Lincoln Deserved To Die. Have you heard of anyone being all up-in-arms over that whole story? Not at all. The whole thing describes what a terrible person Lincoln was and the award-winning actor who played him in a movie should have been assassinated much, much sooner than he was. Are we condoning The Onions behavior toward the young Wallis? Absolutely not. People who write comedic pieces for a living should be able to tell where the boundaries are. Calling a 9-year-old anything more than precocious is not alright. However, no one should be surprised they did it. Writers and editors of The Onion seem to be continually pushing themselves to be more edgy and to be more out there. Journalist and columnist Joel Stein tweeted: We got that @ TheOnion was making fun of our celeb-obsessed, celeb-jealous, celeb-dissing culture and not Quevenzhane Wallis, right? They didnt convey their point in a non-offensive way. Thats the problem. On Monday morning, The Onions CEO issued an apology. The statement called the tweet crude and offensive not to mention inconsistent with The Onions commitment to parody and satire, however biting. It seems like a weird line to draw.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 National security threats often invoke images of bombs, guns and invading military forces, but one of the most pressing threats to the United States involves none of these things. Instead, powers hostile to the United States and its interests have quietly launched domestic cyberterrorism attacks against U.S. banks and, most recently, against popular American news agencies. Such subtle acts of espionage, and the likelihood they will only become more damaging, translates into a dire need for Congress to quickly pass legislation that beefs up cybersecurity defenses. The issue of cybersecurity came to the forefront of national discourse in January, when The New York Times revealed they had fallen victim to a four-month-long network security breach, which reportedly originated in China. The initial breach occurred about Oct. 25, the publication date of an article reporting on the family of the countrys prime minister. This disturbing news was followed by revelations that The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg News and The Washington Post experienced similar issues within their own networks. The fact that unfriendly powers are carrying out such breaches against institutions of free speech is unsettling enough, but the threats extend beyond mere invasions of privacy. Large attacks were leveled in September against the online systems of JPMor gan Chase & Co., Bank of America, Wells Fargo, U.S. Bank and PNC Bank, resulting in an at least daylong denials of service. Such attacks indicate much more is at stake, with some especially problematic areas being not only but also power grids for nuclear power Nation-state attackers will target critical infrastructure networks such as power grids at an unprecedented scale in 2013 These types of attacks could grow more sophisticated, and the slippery slope could lead to the loss of human life, said Chiranjeev Bordoloi, CEO of security company TopPatch. According to a CNN interview with James Lewis, a cybersecurity expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, at least 12 of the worlds largest military powers are working to construct complicated cyberwarfare systems. It would be no stretch to say the United States has the most to lose at the hands of these powers if our government continues to put cybersecurity on the backburner. Though the medias constant bombardment of the public with images of war-ravaged Afghanistan would suggest otherwise, the events in a remote desert nation do not necessarily pose a greater threat to national security than seemingly less dangerous tors of this and prompt them to not only engage in serious discussion with other nations such as China, but also quickly pass legislation that would re-allocate substantial defense resources to building a stronger cyberdefense system. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee,, spoke to the immediacy of the situation in an interview with Politico: Foreign cyberattackers are targeting every aspect of the American economy every day and Congress needs to act with urgency to protect our national security and our economy, he said. With the defense budget and looming sequestration cuts up for debate, Congress needs to take advantage of an opportunity for bipartisan cooperation. Instead of continuing partisan bicker ing on troop withdrawals and timetables, lawmakers must work to pass serious legislation that will provide the tools necessary to combat lurking cyberthreats. Attacks on public utilities and power plants can create not only inconvenient but dangerous situations for everyday Americans, and the crash of a banks computer system can wreak economic havoc. In addition, some of the nations most sensitive intelligence information could be discretely collected and used against us in unexpected attacks. Aggression in cyberspace is unfortunately a product of our times, truly illustrating both the magic and terror that modern technology can bring. As such, our leaders must act, so we are prepared for whatever comes our way. Technological capacities will only continue to grow as time passes, and as nations unfriendly to the United States develop economically and politically, the possibility of more serious attacks will only increase. Constructing a stronger defense in U.S. cyberspace is of paramount importance, and waiting longer could only harm the nation the time for action is now. Sarah Cueva is a columnist for the Daily Trojan at the University of Southern California.Cybersecurity should really be a priorityUWireSarah CuevaUWire The college campus is no doubt a progressive environment. Of all places, UF probably would not suffer from an issue like gender discrimination. However, is this completely true? Is it possible there are socially constructed restrictions on each gender, even on a socially progressive college campus? to social behavior is advertisement in the media. It is no surprise that the media affects public per ception. However, it tends to be a shock to some that advertisements affect what we perceive as normal. Most people think they tune out advertisements, but the reality is, subconsciously or not, advertisements ingrain in us what we are supposed to believe is the ideal representation of beauty or normalcy. plores the consequences of girls being taught at a young age that the most important thing is appear ance. In her documentary Killing Us Softly, she speaks about how failure to look the way models in advertisements do is both inevitable and psychologically harmful. fore what is feminine: to be beautiful, young and thin. Advertisements very often sexually objectify women by turning them into the product they want men as well, but the effects are very different. language portrays submissiveness, weakness and sexual availability. Men are usually portrayed as strong and powerful. So what are the consequences of this? Through advertisements, the media teaches us that men always have to be dominant. There are some disturbing advertisements depicting gang rape, such as a Dolce & Gabbana ad of a woman laying down in a bathing suit, a shirtless man holding her down, with several other men watching. Some advertisements even depict sexual battery. Do advertisers want us to think this is the norm in our society? The creators of ads probably did not intend this, but they are nevertheless perpetuating it. Sexual obalization of sex, as termed by Kilbourne. Objectifying human beings leads to a lack of respect toward them. The evidence for this can be found in slut-shaming. Constantly, we are judging women by what they wear, as if they had some ulterior motive. How many times have you seen fellow peers walking at Midtown with a short skirt and had the word slut come to mind? There is a very negative connotation to the word of a sexual temptress and her main goal is to seduce men. And, of course, as implied by advertisements selling a perfume, men will not be able to control themselves when seeing this woman. Because masculinity is often associated with violence and promiscuity, it is almost as if we are condoning these behaviors. There is a boys will be boys mentality whenments on a womans sex appeal. This can be seen in action movies with a hyper-masculine male, television shows and ads. Ultimately, this perception leads to a society that accepts rape. Too often, women who have been raped are asked what they were wearing, how much they were drinking or if they led the man on. Too often, we wrongfully blame the victim instead of the rapist. The disappointing part is that it has a lot to do with this idea of slut-shaming, of making women feel guilty for tempting men with ing men. This is the reason why sexual assaults are so rarely reported. Most victims of rape feel ashamed, as if it was somehow their fault. tisements in this article, but there are many other things that affect our perception of gender. I believe these issues need to be addressed or there will never be progress.

Freshman Sydney Moss has impressed during coach Amanda Butler. See story, page 16. FRAZIER II IS OUT UNTIL AT LEAST SATURDAY. LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer The Gators depth will be tested tonight in Knoxville, Tenn. Guard Michael Frazier II (concussion) will miss No. 8 Floridas matchup with Tennessee at 9 p.m., and he is questionable for Saturdays home contest against Alabama, coach Billy Donovan said Monday. Frazier suffered the head injury with 11:42 remaining during UFs 71-54 victory against Arkansas on Saturday. As he dove for a loose ball, the freshman took a knee to the head from guard Scottie Wilbekin. After remaining face down on the ground for more than a minute, Frazier exited to the locker room and did not return. Donovan said Frazier failed some of his baseline tests Sunday but should begin light exercise within the next two days once team doctors clear him. Frazier has been Floridas top freshman this year, averaging 6.4 points with a team-best 48.9 percent clip from three-point range. The 6-foot-4 Tampa native has also shown prowess as a rebounder, grabbing 3.4 boards in 18.7 minutes per game off the bench. After Frazier sits out Tuesdays tributors will have missed at least one contest this year due to injury. Its been kind of some strange stuff that has happened, Donovan said. The one thing that has been good is that our guys have responded. Weve just gotten obviously this year a large rash of [injuries]. With Frazier out and forward Will Yeguete still inactive after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on Feb. 8 to remove bone chips in his right knee, the Gators are left with only six healthy players averaging double-digit minutes this year. Donovan will need guard Braxton Ogbueze, forward DeVon Walker and guard Dillon Graham to void Tuesday night. All three freshmen average fewer than 5 minutes per game and normally play during the tail end of routs. The 6-foot-6, 191-pound Walker has shot 3 of 19 in 2012-13. Ogbueze has fared better in limited minutes, averaging 0.9 points Kristi Camara / Alligator Trainers help Michael Frazier II (20) off the court after the freshman guard suffered a concussion in UFs win against Arkansas on Saturday. UF tweaking lineup amid injuries ADAM PINCUS Alligator Staff Writer Daniel Gibson stood behind his teammates as they leaned over the dugout railing watching a tie game slip away. Gibson allowed a single to the only batter he faced. RunGibson clapped his hands. The Gators wanted this game. Florida needed it to avoid Shafer struck out Brooks Beisner and induced a ground ball to shortstop Richie Martin off the bat of Michael Suchy. Floridas bullpen had allowed two runs in six innings after Suchys groundout. A small feat for a winning baseball team, but for the struggling Gators, it meant one step closer to victory. Coach Kevin OSullivan went to his Florida needed a better performance from its middle relief Saturdays 8-3 loss. We needed to win [on Sunday], OSullivan said. That was the mindset going in. Were trying to win the ball game. OSullivan tabbed Magliozzi early, because the sophomore attacks the strike zone. Magliozzi kept the Eagles scoreless until his fourth insingle with a game-tying two-run home run off the top of a palm tree in right. Shafer suffered a similar fate in his third inning. Two swings turned potential redemption into another Florida relievers struggling in 2013 END OF GREGULATION Three years into his Florida career, Patric Young remains an enigma. Once considered the best big man Billy Donovan has ever recruited and a potential one-and-done player, Young has not lived up to expectations. But a starting center putting up 10.3 points and 6.5 rebounds per game obviously isnt a bust. Young isnt just an average player, either, because he rarely has an average game. He seems to oscillate between 12and-12 and 2-and-3 on a nightly basis. While his chiseled physique and freakish athleticism generate expectations of greatness, his lack of instincts and feel for the game will always hold him back. Watching him play, spectators feel like those mental shortcomings are easily correctable. But maybe asking him to have a better sense of where the rebound will come off is no more fair than asking him to be taller or jump higher he just cant do it. Donovan seems to think Youngs problem is related to effort, saying the difference between his good games and his bad games is a total choice by him. As big and strong as he is, theres no reason he shouldnt demand the ball every single time he gets down inside, Donovan said. There are times you watch him on So is Young lazy? That cant be it. Everything hes ever said has made him seem like a smart, hard-working, levelheaded guy. Lazy people dont have bodies like Youngs. They dont Only his 50 percent free-throw shooting suggests a lack of effort, but I havent seen him in practice, and I dont know how he spends his time, so Im not going to assume he isnt working hard. Donovans other go-to explanation is that Young has been limited by foul trouble, but thats rarely been an issue. Young averages just 3.4 fouls per 40 minutes and has played at least 22 minutes in every game this season. Young appears to be committed to Florida and the process. More than any other player, Youngs answers parrot often word for word the things Donovan tells his team and the media. But then why is Young facing the same issues he has since During his freshman year, Young was too focused on the expectations. He wanted to score and rebound enough to preserve his status as a projected NBA lottery pick.

He wanted to play well so badly that he became frustrated by his limited role. He admitted he was listening to the wrong people. But, after a meeting with Donovan and his assistants, Young said he bought in. He was ing and playing defense. Young had supposedly learned, but dur ing his sophomore season, we heard about the same discussions. rebound and defend. Young wanted to get the ball more. They talked, and Young said he learned. Im starting to realize the great players are the ones who can perform even when theyre not feeling great, and Im starting to do a lot better job of that, Young said. Ive got to push myself. So I have to assume he knows whats being asked of him, and I have to assume hes working hard. Then whats holding him back? He doesnt have instincts or a feel for the game. Even on Saturday, when Donovan applauded his effort, Young played some ter rible stretches. With 16:25 remaining the second half, his attempt at a jumper which he should never be taking was blocked.

Through foul trouble, substitutions and fatigue, were going to have to utilize those guys, Donovan said. The uncer tainty and the unknown is these guys have not really been in situations in the heart and heat of the game to see how they will respond. Theyre going to get kind of thrust into that [tonight] in Knoxville. Due to a shorthanded roster, Donovan might experiment with unfamiliar lineups, including a four-guard rotation with 6-foot6 forward Casey Prather at center. Its whatever, Prather said. I have to do it to win. Im not as big as those guys, but I know my teammates will help me out as far as like helping in the post. Tennessee (16-10, 8-6 Southeastern Conbeat Florida twice last year. The Volunteers defeated the Gators 67-56 last season in Knoxville. UT could exploit UFs rebounding if the Gators (22-4, 12-2 SEC) choose to go small. The Volunteers are third in the league with an average rebounding margin of plus-5.5. Florida has only won the reYeguetes surgery. UT center Jarnell Stokes, a 6-foot-8, 270-pound bruiser, averages 12.8 points and nine rebounds per game. Hes got a football player body, center Patric Young said. I just have to hold my ground and stay out of foul trouble. Yeguete update: Donovan said Monday that Yeguete would be inserted into Thursdays practice in some shape or form. Whether or not that means he can play on Saturday, I dont know, Donovan said. Hes going to start getting into practice, but I dont know when hell be allowed to absorb contact and those kinds of things. HOOPS, from page 13

The Gators improved from a sixth-place tie to a fourth-place tie, but Florida now trails leader UNF by 28 strokes after dropping 12 strokes on Monday. Given the conditions today, we played better than we did yesterday, coach Buddy Alexander said in a release. We got off to a rough start but made a pretty good comeback. Every UF starter struggled to shoot below par. Each shot a minimum three-stroke differ second. J.D. Tomlinson currently leads Florida after shooting a 70 (-2) in the second round and is currently tied for ninth. Tomlinson has been the Gators most consistent player but still trails Ospreys junior Kevin Phelan by 12 strokes (-13). Phelan leads the tournament through two rounds. T.J. Vogel, UFs usual No. 1, has struggled since undergoing sports hernia surgery. Vogel shot six shots worse in the second (69) and is tied for 12th. Tyler McCumber has also played below his usual standards. He is tied for 31st after shooting a 76 (+4) in the second round. McCumber, like Vogel, played worse in the second round, shooting round 72. Despite a disappointing day, Floridas two back end starters, Eric Banks and Santiago Gavino, improved. Banks bettered his strokes (74) to go two over par and jump 14 spots into a tie for 55th. Gavino virtually shot himself out of contention with an 82 (+10) bring his score down to a 79 (+7) in the second. Floridas other participant was freshman A.J.

PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer Sydney Moss has been a bright spot in Floridas otherwise gloomy season. The injury-riddled and inexperienced Gators have struggled during Southeastern Conference play, where they are tied for eighth with Arkansas. A berth in the NCAA Tournament would probably require UF winning the SEC Tournament, an unlikely scenario given the Gators have failed to beat any ence. But moving forward, Moss projects to be among the SECs elite, a player that Florida could use to ascend in the standings next season. When Sydney plays with a lot of command and presence, she is about as talented as anybody in this league, coach Amanda Butler said. shoot the ball well, come off screens, make things happen on defense, and when she rebounds the basketball the 3 seconds that follow that rebound are probably as special as anyone Ive ever coached. out of high school, Moss has quickly developed more aspects of her game. She is 13th in the SEC in rebounding during conference play. Her 6.3 boards per game rank third among freshmen. But Moss is best at getting her teammates involved. She leads UF in assists with 3.8 per contest, which is the secondhighest rate among SEC freshmen. Only Missouri guard Lianna Doty averages more, with 4.8 per game. Shes just a ridiculous passer, Butler said. She can make passes when she is on the perimeter for us that none of our other perimeter players can. Her size and strength and vision and feel for the game, thats one of the areas that shes unique on our team. Said Kayla Lewis: She just has some abilities that you cant coach. She has a great feel for the game and makes her teammates better. She makes me look good. Moss vision was on display in Flor idas 67-61 come-from-behind victory at Alabama on Sunday. Despite scoring just four points on 2-of-7 shooting, she stayed productive during the game by accumulating nine assists and six rebounds while logging 27 minutes. The freshman guard was particularly as the catalyst for Floridas largest comeback of the season. Trailing 53-40 with 10:36 remaining, the Gators scored nine straight points to close the gap.

When Margio opened her door, Gordon pushed her to the ground. Margio then ran back into her room and locked the door, Tobias said.

JENSEN WERLEYAlligator Contributing WriterA survey released last week by Kaplan Test Prep shows that only 32 percent of medical school students plan to go into general health care, while the other 68 percent plans to have a specialization. for premed students, said Amjed Saffarini, vice president of graduate programs at Kaplan. Russell Schaffer, senior communications manager for Kaplan, said 713 students from UF applied to med school last year. However, there is still a shortage of 65,000 doctors. Saffarini said there are more people growing older who need more health care. He also said the Affordable Health Care Act brings in about 30 million people, who put additional strain on the system. Also, current doctors are heading to retirement, leaving open positions. He said more doctors are choosing specialties. In addition to new changes such as the Affordable Health Care Act, there have also been recent changes to the MCAT. Safarini said changes to the positions left by the shortage. If students are learning harder sciences, then they might be better prepared and can get through school faster, he said. Med school can be three years instead of four.There is a shortage of doctors in the US, new survey showsLOCAL FATEMAH ALBADERAlligator Contributing WriterMonkey see, monkey do. But for four days, Wendell, a brown capuchin monkey, had to rely on his hands and nose after he was found temporarily blind Wednesday at the Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary. Sara Smith, an assistant to the sanctuary director, said when sanctuary staff members tried to give Wendell a piece of popcorn, he was unresponsive. He went blind after he was self-attacking, which is a result of diabetic neuropathy, Smith said. On Monday, a veterinarian found Wendells blood pressure and glucose level were too high, causing his blood vessels to tighten and constrict his eyes, said Kari Bagnall, the sanctuarys founder. Bagnall said sanctuary staff members worked through the weekend to remodel Wendells habitat to make it easier for him to move around because of his limited eyesight. On Sunday, however, workers made a surprising discovery: Wendell regained his sight. When his blood pressure and glucose level went down, he could see again, Bagnall said. Now, sanctuary staff are watching Wendells glucose levels, so he wont go blind again. If it does happen again, and his blood vessels rupture, it could be irreversible, said Nicole Villella, a veterinary assistant who has cared for Wendell for a year. caution. If that happens again, I dont want him to be blind and then fall, Bagnall said.Monkey regains vision in sanctuary GARRETT BRUNOAlligator Contributing WriterUF criminology sophomore Brett Helms made the mistake of turning on his wipers to remove the thick layer of yellow particles that covered his windshield. Breathing in at just the wrong time, Helms let out a loud sneeze. The culprit: pollen. I have horrible allergies, Helms, 19, said. So having that happen made it worse for the rest of the day. I literally just stopped at the store and bought a pack of Claritin on my way to school. For many students and residents of Gainesville, late February means the beginning of pollen season and allergies. Dr. Shih-Wen Huang, the head of the allergy clinic at Shands at UF, said pollen tends to stay in the air when it is dry outside and humidity is low. The weather pretty much determines the amount of pollen in the air, Huang said. The sources, though, include a total of about 14 different trees that could produce these pollens. The most common perpetrators of pollen production in Gainesville are maple, oak, pine and cedar trees, Huang said. Huang said treatment of allergies possible to control.

LAUREN ACTONAlligator Contributing WriterDuring a talk at UF, an Indonesian sweatshop worker said he was threatened with death by factory owners for demanding severance pay for him and his coworkers. Aslam Hidayat worked at the PT Kizone factory for Adidas. Adidas products are high quality, but the management is not, he said. Garrett Strain, the national organizer for United Students Against Sweatshops, visited UF Monday with Hidagat and another factory worker in an effort to get UF to cut its contract with Adidas. UF sells Gator Adidas clothing. Adidas, the second largest sports apparel provider in the world, brought in $8.21 billion in gally-owed severance pay to 2,800 PT Kizone workers, according to the Badidas Campaign and Worker Tour. Slain said UF was just one of many stops he has made in the Badidas Campaign, which has been traveling to various college campuses to get them to cut their contract with Adidas. He said so far, this tour has been a success. Six universities, including Cornell University, the University of Washington and Georgetown University, have already agreed to cut each of their contracts.

For the last six years, Project selected an Alachua County elementary school to renovate, said Ashley Podoll, executive director of Project Makeover Idylwild Elementary. a renovated elementary school did its own fundraising. They knew what it was that they wanted, and they knew that it was out of Makeovers price range, Kostamo said. That was what their dream project really was. The Gainesville Womans Club made the largest donation, said Fer guson. Precision Playgrounds Co., a Jacksonville-based playground construction company, contributed. Brian BeauPre, playground site supervisor, said he and his co-workers were proud to take part. In 20 years of construction, a 5-year-old shows more appreciation for what we do than most homeowners or builders, he said.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Elise Giordano / Alligator StaffBrains and Beauty LIFESTYLE BETHANY SCHUSTERAlligator Contributing WriterPill bottles arent living up to their promises. Its like a foot long thats only 11 inches, Paul Doering said. Doering, a distinguished service professor from UFs College of Pharmacy, said recent information on dietary supplement labels is both disappointing and unacceptable. Some vitamin D labels arent living up to their potency expectations. Labels promised a particular percentage of strength, but the pills Some provided as little as 9 or as much as 140 percent of its claimed potency, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association. The association published its results on dietary supplements last week. Although companies creating and supplying dietary supplements are not required to comply with Food and Drug Administration guidelines, companies may choose to meet the standards of the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention for a seal of approval and trustwor thiness. USP is a nongovernmental organization that provides standards for purity and potency of pharmaceutical products. It requires compounded pills to contain 90 to 110 per cent of the active ingredient. The vitamin D pills the researchers studied werent up to USPs standards. One of the things you expect when you buy any kind of medicinal product, no matter where it comes from, you expect it to be up to its labeled potency, Doering said He said even though vitamin D is not as potentially toxic as a narcotic pain reliever or cancer drugs, inaccurate potency labeling is intolerable. Strength or effectiveness of a pill may diminish over time due to heat, light or moisture, Doering said. But there are no variables that explain pills gaining strength to make some supplements about 40 percent of their original claim. I can assure you that the tablet or capsule wasnt gaining potency as it sat there on the shelf, which leads me to believe that when it went out the door of the manufacturing plant, the stuff was super potent, Doering said. There is always potential for a dietary supplement or vitamin to interact adversely with medicines. Student Health Care Center Marketing Coordinator Catherine Seemann urged students to not only look for USPs stamp of approval on any supplement but also to ask their doctors or pharmacists before they take it. Its extremely important to disclose that information to your health care provider, she said. When it comes to dietary supplements, using a healthy dose of skepticism will lead you to the promise land, Doering said.Students may find Vitamin D pills hard to swallowDoering

Mondays question: Do you think gun laws should be stricter? 51% YES 49% NO107 TOTAL VOTES To the liberal activist group Progress New Mexico, Eric Szeman and Diane Avila represent evil, greedy capitalists who exploit their workers by refusing to comply with the city of Albuquerques minimum-wage increase. To others, Szeman and Avila are just small business owners trying to make ends meet while running the Route 66 Malt Shop. If the owners were to comply with the citys minimum wage increase, Szeman argues, they would have to close down the business and lay off 12 employees. The minimum wage became the topic of national attention when President Barack Obama declared in his State of the Union address the government would raise the federal minimum wage to $9.00 an hour. Under the current minimum wage, the president argued, a full-time minimum wage employee still earns below the poverty line, and a change in this policy would lift millions out of poverty. But would it really? A 1999 study by economists David Neumark, Mark Schweitzer and William Wascher found increases in the minimum wage lead to more poverty. The authors conclude minimum wage increases do, no doubt, help some families escape poverty; but the employment losses associated with a higher minimum also appear to cause some families to fall into poverty. In other words, any gains experienced by individuals in minimum wage jobs are outweighed by the increase in unemployment that results from businesses not being able to hire and/or lay off workers to compensate for the higher wages. A 2012 Cato Institute report cited a study from 2010, which found when the federal government increased the minimum wage from $5.15 to $7.25, only 15.8 percent of the workers who were expected to gain from it lived in poor households. This occurs because many of the lowskilled workers who are employed in minimum wage jobs are second or third earners living in households with incomes well above the poverty line. Other studies have shown that the minimum wage has an adverse effect on teenagers, especially young minorities. Furthermore, if employers try to avoid laying off workers, the costs of minimum wage increases are carried by consumers with higher prices. Because a higher share of a lowincome individuals earnings is spent on necessities such as food, its hard to see how an increase in food prices help out poor people. But for some progressive do-gooders, the economic realities of the minimum wage play no role in deciding whether we should keep increasing it. For Pat Davis, executive director of Progress New Mexico, the Route 66 Malt Shop owners failure to comply with the local minimum wage law amounts to stealing from their workers. Although a great example of hyperbole, Davis fails to mention that without Szeman and Avilas entrepreneurship, many of these employees would be out of work and are only entitled to the wage voluntarily agreed upon when they were hired. Indeed, according to Szeman, his employees signed a contract agreeing to work at their old wage. Furthermore, when you factor in tips, Szeman and Avila argue they make less than their employees, having to reinvest their If the minimum wage is increased again, there will be more Route 66 Malt Shops, more unhappy small business owners and more people without jobs. But at least we feel good about ourselves. Justin Hayes is pursuing a masters degree in Political Communication. His column usually appears on Wednesdays.Disobeying wage increase: Good or greed?Fail Whale: The Onion stepped on some toesWhere do we draw the lines of comedy? Do we cross them when a satirical news publication calls a 9-yearold girl the C-word? Last night, during the Oscars ceremony, The Onion tweeted: Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhane Wallis is kind of a [four-letter word that begins with C], right? By 1 a.m. Monday, dozens of tweets per second were being posted, virtually all of them expressing contempt, incredulity or outrage, reported USA Today. A comedy website tweeted something more outrageous than they normally do, and people reacted accordingly. @TheOnion Identify the writer. Let him defend that abhorrent verbal attack of a child. You call it humor I call it horrendous, wrote The Wire star Wendell Pierce, who also demanded the site apologize. There seemed to be few people online defending the website for doing its job. Take a look at the front page of The Onions offensive content that hardly anybody bats an eyelash toward. After being up for an hour, the backlash gathered, and the tweet was deleted, wrote BuzzFeeds Kate Aurthur. Was about someone like Anne Hathaway? mentary on the many different types of hate Hathaway receives, for some reason. But really, what else are we supposed to expect from The Onion? Right now, you can read an article written by Daniel Day-Lewis titled While Im Glad I Won, I Personally Believe Abraham Lincoln Deserved To Die. Have you heard of anyone being all up-in-arms over that whole story? Not at all. The whole thing describes what a terrible person Lincoln was and the award-winning actor who played him in a movie should have been assassinated much, much sooner than he was. Are we condoning The Onions behavior toward the young Wallis? Absolutely not. People who write comedic pieces for a living should be able to tell where the boundaries are. Calling a 9-year-old anything more than precocious is not alright. However, no one should be surprised they did it. Writers and editors of The Onion seem to be continually pushing themselves to be more edgy and to be more out there. Journalist and columnist Joel Stein tweeted: We got that @ TheOnion was making fun of our celeb-obsessed, celeb-jealous, celeb-dissing culture and not Quevenzhane Wallis, right? They didnt convey their point in a non-offensive way. Thats the problem. On Monday morning, The Onions CEO issued an apology. The statement called the tweet crude and offensive not to mention inconsistent with The Onions commitment to parody and satire, however biting. It seems like a weird line to draw. At what point is something horribly offensive but still funny, and at what point does the CEO of a company have to issue an apology? Justin Hayesopinions@alligator.org

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 National security threats often invoke images of bombs, guns and invading military forces, but one of the most pressing threats to the United States involves none of these things. Instead, powers hostile to the United States and its interests have quietly launched domestic cyberterrorism attacks against U.S. banks and, most recently, against popular American news agencies. Such subtle acts of espionage, and the likelihood they will only become more damaging, translates into a dire need for Congress to quickly pass legislation that beefs up cybersecurity defenses. The issue of cybersecurity came to the forefront of national discourse in January, when The New York Times revealed they had fallen victim to a four-month-long network security breach, which reportedly originated in China. The initial breach occurred about Oct. 25, the publication date of an article reporting on the family of the countrys prime minister. This disturbing news was followed by revelations that The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg News and The Washington Post experienced similar issues within their own networks. The fact that unfriendly powers are carrying out such breaches against institutions of free speech is unsettling enough, but the threats extend beyond mere invasions of privacy. Large attacks were leveled in September against the online systems of JPMor gan Chase & Co., Bank of America, Wells Fargo, U.S. Bank and PNC Bank, resulting in an at least daylong denials of service. Such attacks indicate much more is at stake, with some especially problematic areas being not only but also power grids for nuclear power Nation-state attackers will target critical infrastructure networks such as power grids at an unprecedented scale in 2013 These types of attacks could grow more sophisticated, and the slippery slope could lead to the loss of human life, said Chiranjeev Bordoloi, CEO of security company TopPatch. According to a CNN interview with James Lewis, a cybersecurity expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, at least 12 of the worlds largest military powers are working to construct complicated cyberwarfare systems. It would be no stretch to say the United States has the most to lose at the hands of these powers if our government continues to put cybersecurity on the backburner. Though the medias constant bombardment of the public with images of war-ravaged Afghanistan would suggest otherwise, the events in a remote desert nation do not necessarily pose a greater threat to national security than seemingly less dangerous tors of this and prompt them to not only engage in serious discussion with other nations such as China, but also quickly pass legislation that would re-allocate substantial defense resources to building a stronger cyberdefense system. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee,, spoke to the immediacy of the situation in an interview with Politico: Foreign cyberattackers are targeting every aspect of the American economy every day and Congress needs to act with urgency to protect our national security and our economy, he said. With the defense budget and looming sequestration cuts up for debate, Congress needs to take advantage of an opportunity for bipartisan cooperation. Instead of continuing partisan bicker ing on troop withdrawals and timetables, lawmakers must work to pass serious legislation that will provide the tools necessary to combat lurking cyberthreats. Attacks on public utilities and power plants can create not only inconvenient but dangerous situations for everyday Americans, and the crash of a banks computer system can wreak economic havoc. In addition, some of the nations most sensitive intelligence information could be discretely collected and used against us in unexpected attacks. Aggression in cyberspace is unfortunately a product of our times, truly illustrating both the magic and terror that modern technology can bring. As such, our leaders must act, so we are prepared for whatever comes our way. Technological capacities will only continue to grow as time passes, and as nations unfriendly to the United States develop economically and politically, the possibility of more serious attacks will only increase. Constructing a stronger defense in U.S. cyberspace is of paramount importance, and waiting longer could only harm the nation the time for action is now. Sarah Cueva is a columnist for the Daily Trojan at the University of Southern California.Cybersecurity should really be a priorityUWireSarah CuevaUWire The college campus is no doubt a progressive environment. Of all places, UF probably would not suffer from an issue like gender discrimination. However, is this completely true? Is it possible there are socially constructed restrictions on each gender, even on a socially progressive college campus? to social behavior is advertisement in the media. It is no surprise that the media affects public per ception. However, it tends to be a shock to some that advertisements affect what we perceive as normal. Most people think they tune out advertisements, but the reality is, subconsciously or not, advertisements ingrain in us what we are supposed to believe is the ideal representation of beauty or normalcy. plores the consequences of girls being taught at a young age that the most important thing is appear ance. In her documentary Killing Us Softly, she speaks about how failure to look the way models in advertisements do is both inevitable and psychologically harmful. fore what is feminine: to be beautiful, young and thin. Advertisements very often sexually objectify women by turning them into the product they want men as well, but the effects are very different. language portrays submissiveness, weakness and sexual availability. Men are usually portrayed as strong and powerful. So what are the consequences of this? Through advertisements, the media teaches us that men always have to be dominant. There are some disturbing advertisements depicting gang rape, such as a Dolce & Gabbana ad of a woman laying down in a bathing suit, a shirtless man holding her down, with several other men watching. Some advertisements even depict sexual battery. Do advertisers want us to think this is the norm in our society? The creators of ads probably did not intend this, but they are nevertheless perpetuating it. Sexual obalization of sex, as termed by Kilbourne. Objectifying human beings leads to a lack of respect toward them. The evidence for this can be found in slut-shaming. Constantly, we are judging women by what they wear, as if they had some ulterior motive. How many times have you seen fellow peers walking at Midtown with a short skirt and had the word slut come to mind? There is a very negative connotation to the word of a sexual temptress and her main goal is to seduce men. And, of course, as implied by advertisements selling a perfume, men will not be able to control themselves when seeing this woman. Because masculinity is often associated with violence and promiscuity, it is almost as if we are condoning these behaviors. There is a boys will be boys mentality whenments on a womans sex appeal. This can be seen in action movies with a hyper-masculine male, television shows and ads. Ultimately, this perception leads to a society that accepts rape. Too often, women who have been raped are asked what they were wearing, how much they were drinking or if they led the man on. Too often, we wrongfully blame the victim instead of the rapist. The disappointing part is that it has a lot to do with this idea of slut-shaming, of making women feel guilty for tempting men with ing men. This is the reason why sexual assaults are so rarely reported. Most victims of rape feel ashamed, as if it was somehow their fault. tisements in this article, but there are many other things that affect our perception of gender. I believe these issues need to be addressed or there will never be progress.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators in the NBA Bradley BealWashington Wizards guard Bradley Beal scored 20 points and grabbed six rebounds in a 90-84 win against the Toronto Raptors on Monday in Toronto.Gators in the NBA Al HorfordAtlanta Hawks center Al Horford scored 23 points and grabbed 22 rebounds in a 114-103 victory against the Detroit Pistons on Monday in Detroit. Freshman Sydney Moss has impressed during coach Amanda Butler. See story, page 16. FRAZIER II IS OUT UNTIL AT LEAST SATURDAY. LANDON WATNICK Alligator Writer The Gators depth will be tested tonight in Knoxville, Tenn. Guard Michael Frazier II (concussion) will miss No. 8 Floridas matchup with Tennessee at 9 p.m., and he is questionable for Saturdays home contest against Alabama, coach Billy Donovan said Monday. Frazier suffered the head injury with 11:42 remaining during UFs 71-54 victory against Arkansas on Saturday. As he dove for a loose ball, the freshman took a knee to the head from guard Scottie Wilbekin. After remaining face down on the ground for more than a minute, Frazier exited to the locker room and did not return. Donovan said Frazier failed some of his baseline tests Sunday but should begin light exercise within the next two days once team doctors clear him. Frazier has been Floridas top freshman this year, averaging 6.4 points with a team-best 48.9 percent clip from three-point range. The 6-foot-4 Tampa native has also shown prowess as a rebounder, grabbing 3.4 boards in 18.7 minutes per game off the bench. After Frazier sits out Tuesdays tributors will have missed at least one contest this year due to injury. Its been kind of some strange stuff that has happened, Donovan said. The one thing that has been good is that our guys have responded. Weve just gotten obviously this year a large rash of [injuries]. With Frazier out and forward Will Yeguete still inactive after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on Feb. 8 to remove bone chips in his right knee, the Gators are left with only six healthy players averaging double-digit minutes this year. Donovan will need guard Braxton Ogbueze, forward DeVon Walker and guard Dillon Graham to void Tuesday night. All three freshmen average fewer than 5 minutes per game and normally play during the tail end of routs. The 6-foot-6, 191-pound Walker has shot 3 of 19 in 2012-13. Ogbueze has fared better in limited minutes, averaging 0.9 points Kristi Camara / Alligator Trainers help Michael Frazier II (20) off the court after the freshman guard suffered a concussion in UFs win against Arkansas on Saturday. UF tweaking lineup amid injuries ADAM PINCUS Alligator Staff Writer Daniel Gibson stood behind his teammates as they leaned over the dugout railing watching a tie game slip away. Gibson allowed a single to the only batter he faced. RunGibson clapped his hands. The Gators wanted this game. Florida needed it to avoid Shafer struck out Brooks Beisner and induced a ground ball to shortstop Richie Martin off the bat of Michael Suchy. Floridas bullpen had allowed two runs in six innings after Suchys groundout. A small feat for a winning baseball team, but for the struggling Gators, it meant one step closer to victory. Coach Kevin OSullivan went to his Florida needed a better performance from its middle relief Saturdays 8-3 loss. We needed to win [on Sunday], OSullivan said. That was the mindset going in. Were trying to win the ball game. OSullivan tabbed Magliozzi early, because the sophomore attacks the strike zone. Magliozzi kept the Eagles scoreless until his fourth insingle with a game-tying two-run home run off the top of a palm tree in right. Shafer suffered a similar fate in his third inning. Two swings turned potential redemption into another Florida relievers struggling in 2013 END OF GREGULATION Three years into his Florida career, Patric Young remains an enigma. Once considered the best big man Billy Donovan has ever recruited and a potential one-and-done player, Young has not lived up to expectations. But a starting center putting up 10.3 points and 6.5 rebounds per game obviously isnt a bust. Young isnt just an average player, either, because he rarely has an average game. He seems to oscillate between 12and-12 and 2-and-3 on a nightly basis. While his chiseled physique and freakish athleticism generate expectations of greatness, his lack of instincts and feel for the game will always hold him back. Watching him play, spectators feel like those mental shortcomings are easily correctable. But maybe asking him to have a better sense of where the rebound will come off is no more fair than asking him to be taller or jump higher he just cant do it. Donovan seems to think Youngs problem is related to effort, saying the difference between his good games and his bad games is a total choice by him. As big and strong as he is, theres no reason he shouldnt demand the ball every single time he gets down inside, Donovan said. There are times you watch him on So is Young lazy? That cant be it. Everything hes ever said has made him seem like a smart, hard-working, levelheaded guy. Lazy people dont have bodies like Youngs. They dont Only his 50 percent free-throw shooting suggests a lack of effort, but I havent seen him in practice, and I dont know how he spends his time, so Im not going to assume he isnt working hard. Donovans other go-to explanation is that Young has been limited by foul trouble, but thats rarely been an issue. Young averages just 3.4 fouls per 40 minutes and has played at least 22 minutes in every game this season. Young appears to be committed to Florida and the process. More than any other player, Youngs answers parrot often word for word the things Donovan tells his team and the media. But then why is Young facing the same issues he has since During his freshman year, Young was too focused on the expectations. He wanted to score and rebound enough to preserve his status as a projected NBA lottery pick. Junior center limited by inconsistency, lack of instinctsSEE BASEBALL, PAGE 14 SEE GREG, PAGE 14 SEE HOOPS, PAGE 14 UF Baseball Greg Lucatwitter: @gregluca

He wanted to play well so badly that he became frustrated by his limited role. He admitted he was listening to the wrong people. But, after a meeting with Donovan and his assistants, Young said he bought in. He was ing and playing defense. Young had supposedly learned, but dur ing his sophomore season, we heard about the same discussions. rebound and defend. Young wanted to get the ball more. They talked, and Young said he learned. Im starting to realize the great players are the ones who can perform even when theyre not feeling great, and Im starting to do a lot better job of that, Young said. Ive got to push myself. So I have to assume he knows whats being asked of him, and I have to assume hes working hard. Then whats holding him back? He doesnt have instincts or a feel for the game. Even on Saturday, when Donovan applauded his effort, Young played some ter rible stretches. With 16:25 remaining the second half, his attempt at a jumper which he should never be taking was blocked.

OSullivan called for better execution after another subpar perfor mance on Saturday. You look at the box score. Maybe its better, but no, OSullivan said. We got to throw the ball better. The ball is up in the zone. There were a lot of hard outs. around the wet base paths after Sundays soggy game, the Gators waited to pull the does it after every game. For once, it seemed like would like to forget. Extra innings create uncer tainty: Nine different relievers made appearances dur ing the weekend. OSullivan waited until Monday night to announce his decision to start Keenan Kish tonight. pitch against North Florida (5-2) tonight at 7 at McKethan Stadium. Playing their second game with extra innings in a week didnt make the decision any easier for the Gators (3-5). Kish, a right-hander, was one of two UF hurlers not to throw against Florida Gulf reer start on Tuesday against UCF in Orlando. He tossed two scoreless innings. Contact Adam Pincus at apincus@alligator.org. BASEBALL, from page 13Prather could play center in guard-heavy lineupon 31.6 percent shooting. Graham is 0 of 8 from behind the arc. Through foul trouble, substitutions and fatigue, were going to have to utilize those guys, Donovan said. The uncer tainty and the unknown is these guys have not really been in situations in the heart and heat of the game to see how they will respond. Theyre going to get kind of thrust into that [tonight] in Knoxville. Due to a shorthanded roster, Donovan might experiment with unfamiliar lineups, including a four-guard rotation with 6-foot6 forward Casey Prather at center. Its whatever, Prather said. I have to do it to win. Im not as big as those guys, but I know my teammates will help me out as far as like helping in the post. Tennessee (16-10, 8-6 Southeastern Conbeat Florida twice last year. The Volunteers defeated the Gators 67-56 last season in Knoxville. UT could exploit UFs rebounding if the Gators (22-4, 12-2 SEC) choose to go small. The Volunteers are third in the league with an average rebounding margin of plus-5.5. Florida has only won the reYeguetes surgery. UT center Jarnell Stokes, a 6-foot-8, 270-pound bruiser, averages 12.8 points and nine rebounds per game. Hes got a football player body, center Patric Young said. I just have to hold my ground and stay out of foul trouble. Yeguete update: Donovan said Monday that Yeguete would be inserted into Thursdays practice in some shape or form. Whether or not that means he can play on Saturday, I dont know, Donovan said. Hes going to start getting into practice, but I dont know when hell be allowed to absorb contact and those kinds of things. HOOPSS, from page 13

16, ALLIGATOR TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2013 Sarah Davis / AlligatorSydney Moss (40) attempts a pass during Floridas 68-57 loss to Vanderbilt on Thursday in the OConnell Center. MENS GOLF RJ SCHAFFERAlligator Writer round, Florida saw its outlook grow worse in the second round of the John Hayt Collegiate Invitational in Ponte Vedra. The Gators improved from a sixth-place tie to a fourth-place tie, but Florida now trails leader UNF by 28 strokes after dropping 12 strokes on Monday. Given the conditions today, we played better than we did yesterday, coach Buddy Alexander said in a release. We got off to a rough start but made a pretty good comeback. Every UF starter struggled to shoot below par. Each shot a minimum three-stroke differ second. J.D. Tomlinson currently leads Florida after shooting a 70 (-2) in the second round and is currently tied for ninth. Tomlinson has been the Gators most consistent player but still trails Ospreys junior Kevin Phelan by 12 strokes (-13). Phelan leads the tournament through two rounds. T.J. Vogel, UFs usual No. 1, has struggled since undergoing sports hernia surgery. Vogel shot six shots worse in the second (69) and is tied for 12th. Tyler McCumber has also played below his usual standards. He is tied for 31st after shooting a 76 (+4) in the second round. McCumber, like Vogel, played worse in the second round, shooting round 72. Despite a disappointing day, Floridas two back end starters, Eric Banks and Santiago Gavino, improved. Banks bettered his strokes (74) to go two over par and jump 14 spots into a tie for 55th. Gavino virtually shot himself out of contention with an 82 (+10) bring his score down to a 79 (+7) in the second. Floridas other participant was freshman A.J. Crouch, who also experienced a disappointing second round. (+4) in the second round. Florida will wrap up the tour nament today in the championship round. The UF womens team return to action in the Allstate Sugar Bowl after play was canceled Tuesday due to weather. The tournament has been shortened to two rounds with the championship round being played today.UF shoots dismal second round at John Hayt Invitational MOSS LEADS FLORIDA WITH 3.8 ASSISTS PER GAME. PHILLIP HEILMANAlligator Staff Writer Sydney Moss has been a bright spot in Floridas otherwise gloomy season. The injury-riddled and inexperienced Gators have struggled during Southeastern Conference play, where they are tied for eighth with Arkansas. A berth in the NCAA Tournament would probably require UF winning the SEC Tournament, an unlikely scenario given the Gators have failed to beat any ence. But moving forward, Moss projects to be among the SECs elite, a player that Florida could use to ascend in the standings next season. When Sydney plays with a lot of command and presence, she is about as talented as anybody in this league, coach Amanda Butler said. shoot the ball well, come off screens, make things happen on defense, and when she rebounds the basketball the 3 seconds that follow that rebound are probably as special as anyone Ive ever coached. out of high school, Moss has quickly developed more aspects of her game. She is 13th in the SEC in rebounding during conference play. Her 6.3 boards per game rank third among freshmen. But Moss is best at getting her teammates involved. She leads UF in assists with 3.8 per contest, which is the secondhighest rate among SEC freshmen. Only Missouri guard Lianna Doty averages more, with 4.8 per game. Shes just a ridiculous passer, Butler said. She can make passes when she is on the perimeter for us that none of our other perimeter players can. Her size and strength and vision and feel for the game, thats one of the areas that shes unique on our team. Said Kayla Lewis: She just has some abilities that you cant coach. She has a great feel for the game and makes her teammates better. She makes me look good. Moss vision was on display in Flor idas 67-61 come-from-behind victory at Alabama on Sunday. Despite scoring just four points on 2-of-7 shooting, she stayed productive during the game by accumulating nine assists and six rebounds while logging 27 minutes. The freshman guard was particularly as the catalyst for Floridas largest comeback of the season. Trailing 53-40 with 10:36 remaining, the Gators scored nine straight points to close the gap.
