FATEMAH ALBADERAlligator Contributing WriterAfter a six-year absence, an American-style circus will be back in Gainesville for a two-day performance. Cole Bros. Circus Of The Stars will perform in The Oaks Mall parking lot at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. today and Tuesday. Chris Connors, performance director and ringmaster, said the circus is the worlds largest and Americas oldest big top circus. This year, the show will feature 20 acts by about 40 performers. The circus opens up with a roar and ends with a bang, he said. Bill Carter, marketing director of the circus, said the event will include several signature shows, including a human cannonball featuring the worlds largest cannon. The show will also include new acts from a Colombian high-wire troupe as well as up-close performances by baby elephants and white tigers. It is a much more intimate experience than seeing a circus in an arena, Carter said. Cole Bros. Circus Of The Stars travels up and down the United States East Coast for nine months every year. It is currently in its 129th season of touring. Discounted tickets can be purchased online at www.gotothecircus.com or at regular price at the childrens tickets are available at various restaurants around town.

MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Kat Antunes / AlligatorMark Venzke, 55, is running for mayor. Venzke ran for a City Commission seat in 2012. CITY ELECTIONS KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator WriterMark Venzke has led a colorful life. The Chicago native used to work as a conductor and tour guide on an antique railway near Orlando. He was also a Gainesville cabdriver who conducted informal quiz shows with passengers, giving chocolate as prizes for correct answers. He ran, unsuccessfully, for Gainesville city commissioner last year. But with the campaign experience under his belt, Venzke said hes ready to take it to the next level. Hes running for mayor in Tuesdays Gainesville city elections. Venzke, 55, said his No. 1 issue is revamping the citys proposed biomass plant contract to allow more resources for integrating renewable energy. Weve put all of our eggs in one basket a biomass basket, he said. We dont have any eggs left over that GRU the City of Gainesville can use to promote and to facilitate the installation of renewable energy systems. But we could do that if we renegotiate this contract. Venzke also criticized the city for information he said was withheld from the public during the negotiation stages of the contract. He said citizens didnt have a chance to discuss the contract with prescribed workshops. Thats wrong, he said. Our city leaders, and I, as mayor, would call workshops as often as we needed to get a thorough airing of issues so that we can formulate good public policy based on good information. Making public records more accessible is another item Venzke said he would tackle if elected. Under the citys current model, he said, residents must often navigate a documents theyre looking for. Its a rather Byzantine process, he said. Often, people dont get the information they need because they have to work through the system. Venzke said he would look into deinstitutionalizing the process and Reed Franklin, a 65-year-old combustion turbine technician at the Cogeneration Plant located on the UF campus has been friends with Venzke for about 10 years. He said Venzke brings a personable dimension to politics. I have a lot of respect for him, Franklin said. Hes very smart and very kind and caring and honest. Hes not a politician. Hes just into making things better. Mayoral candidate: Mark Venzke

Court decisions were reached in the Steubenville, Ohio, case: Two members of Steubenvilles celebrated high school football team were found guilty Sunday of raping a drunken 16-year-old girl, and Ohios attorney general warned the case isnt over, saying he is investigating whether coaches, parents and other students broke the law, too, The Associated Press reported. The crime, which took place after a party last summer, shocked many in Steubenville because of the seeming callousness with which other students took out their cellphones to record the attack and gossiped about it online, continued the report. In fact, the case came to light via a barrage of morningafter text messages, social media posts and online photos and video. It happened in August. Trent Mays, 17, and MaLik Richmond, 16, were sentenced Sunday to at least a year in juvenile prison. The details of the case, if you havent heard about it so far, are shocking. High schoolers took advantage of a young girl who was too intoxicated to consent to anything. The victim said, according to the AP report, she believed she was assaulted when she later read text messages among friends and saw a photo of herself naked, along with a video that made fun of her and the alleged attack. They treated her like a toy, said prosecutor Marianne Hemmeter. All of the details make us feel extremely sorry for the victim. No one should have to go through that sort of violent situation. Could you imagine someone in the national media even slightly defending the accusers? CNN did. Whats the lasting effect, though, on two young men being found guilty in juvenile court of rape, essentially? CNN anchor Candy Crowley asked on a Sunday morning broadcast. She wanted to know what this verdict meant because a 16 year old, sobbing in court, regardless of what big football players they are, they still sound like 16 year olds. Theres always that moment of just lives are destroyed, CNN legal contributor Paul Callan replied. But in terms of what happens now, the most severe thing with these young men is being labeled as registered sex offenders. That label is now placed on them by Ohio law. That will haunt them for the rest of their lives. Are we supposed to be concerned for the futures of young men who were found guilty of rape? Crowley wasnt the only CNN reporter to express that sort of emotion or concern. to watch as these two young men who had such promising futures, star football players, very good students literally watched as they believed their life fell apart. Were not sorry if their lives are ruined. We dont care how much they sobbed or broke down in court. They made an amazingly horrible mistake, and they got caught. You were your own accuser, through the social media that you chose to publish your criminal conduct on, the victims daughter is. She will persevere, grow and move on.Music helps us forget the annoying stuffWhenever I get stressed, I turn to music. So what? you say. Everybody does that. Listen, if you dont quit interrupting me, this is gonna take a lot longer than it has to. I turn to music because sometimes Im listening to a song, and its just so spot-on to what Im going through at the moment that Im taken aback. I ask myself, did I write that and then time travel to the past to sell it to Jerry Garcia? So then, I waste a bunch of time researching time travel (read: setting all the clocks in my house back 20 minutes), and Im not stressed anymore! I turn to music because its the purest form of human emotional expression. It is our best way to evoke the innate structural beauty of the universe. And thats not just some hippie s--that Im spouting off with no basis in fact. Music and mathematics are entwined rather deeply, and mathematics is the most basic method we, as humanity, possess to understand our universe. Ive heard before, from some of the folks I used to tutor in math, things like, Math is all made up. Its not real. Math is stupid. My arm hurts; when can I stop turning this generator? (That last one is what my roommate just said to me. Our electricity isnt really out, but dont tell him that.) And its true, there are things you learn in math that seem to have no equivalent in the real world. I remember volume of a sphere. This is stupid, I thought. This is just totally made up. How did they get such a weird formula? Then I got to Calc 3 and triple integrals and spherical coordinates. My teacher innocuously gave us an example problem integrating a spherical area of radius r. I dropped my pencil and stared at the paper in amazement. I had just unwittingly derived for myself the formula school angst such a long time ago. I shouted for joy. Everyone in the class gave me a weird look because my shouts for joy last thirty minutes and consist mostly of unorthodox combinations of expletives. Music is just as orderly and just as connected to the inner workings of the universe. Tons of people way smarter than I (e.g., Kepler, Pythagoras, Grover from Sesame Street) have done lifetimes worth of research on the way Man didnt invent music: He discovered it. Take scales. No caveman just sat down and invented the hypophrygian or mixolydian modes. Oog. Me invent music. Cool, Scott. I worked on the past tense and adverbial phrases all day. The notes we use in all of our various scales are separated by frequency in such a systematic way that it seems like they have to be man-made. Then, you look at acoustic waves and how they mimic the sinusoidal waves you used to graph in high school trig. Then, you hear someone play the goje, a traditional Hausa instrument developed Music, like math, is just something we humans do. We dont have to try. Music happens to us. I say all that to say: When its 4 a.m. and your neighbor has been blasting music too loudly through the walls for the past three hours, dont call the cops. Theyre probably just doing math!

MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7Keep Lowe, keep jobsAs mayor, Craig Lowe has fought to bring innovative companies into Gainesville, and his efforts have paid off. Gainesville has seen the creation of more than 1,800 jobs since Craig has become mayor. Companies like Prioria Robotics and MindTree have been established in Innovation Square, bringing hundreds of jobs and making Gainesville a more appealing place to live for college graduates. As a college student, I can see myself living and working in Gainesville in a few years. I would encourage my fellow students to vote to re-elect Mayor Craig Lowe this Tuesday. Joe Andreoli UF geography juniorLowes vision to move Gainesville forwardAs a citizen of Gainesville, I am proud Craig Lowe is our mayor. His skin may still be thickening, but his leadership, vision and compassion for our community are spot-on. I suspect with his re-election we will see a resurgence of vocal support at commission meetings for the vision he and countless others before him cerns of those few regular dissenters. I ask those fellow citizens of Gainesville who share the mayors vision of a forward-driven community that respects our resources, protects our vulnerable citizens, and is mindful of our transportation needs to raise their voices and re-elect Mayor Craig Lowe!

The student population makes up an overwhelming majority of the District 4s constituents, and that means us. As a 20-year old student, I am fully aware of your situations, desires and hopes. I came to UF three years ago seeking friends and challenges and, more importantly, wanting to develop into a man of character. These past three years have given me experiences I will never forget, ranging from serving our university as a Preview staffer to working alongside our many organizations to give back to the Gainesville community. Id like to tell you all why Im asking you to vote Tuesday. Im running to give UF a seat at the table and to give students the voice we deserve. We are important members of the Gainesville community, and unfortunately, there is no one curthe past three years has instilled a sense of pride for my newly found home. Im proud to say Im not just a candidate in the local city elections Im one of you. We are the residents who live and breathe UF and came to love this city. dents and citizens of Gainesville. Today, I want to promise I will work to push the closing of students who enjoy the Gainesville nightlife as well as helping the small businesses that thrive within our city. Gainesville is known for its small businesses and culture, and I want both parties to Together, we can do this. My passion for public service comes from seeing how we can improve our surroundings, and I want to do whats best for all. I encourage you to familiarize yourselves with the candidates and vote Tuesday for the City of Gainesville. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at Alfredo@alfredoespinosa.com.

14, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2013 Kelly Logan / Alligator Staff OSullivan seeking progressas he allowed just one run and struck out seven in eight innings of work. He was mixing it up, said Shafer, plate. He was throwing four pitches for strikes, and when a pitcher does that, it can make it tough. The Gators squandered an opportunity against Littrell in the third Turgeon at bat after leading off with a single. Turgeon then singled to left and two batters later was thrown out at third to end the inning on a Shafer single to right. Part of it was my fault, Mitchell said of Floridas offensive struggles against Kentucky. That couldve been a big inning. ly mentioned another blown chance the Gators had two innings later. Mitchell singled to lead off the full and grounded into a 4-6-3 double play. Harrison Bader, Shafer and Vickash Ramjit followed with back-to-back-torun of the game. If we have a different result with Caseys at-bat there, who knows what happens in that inning, OSullivan said. Though the Gators have not had many easy wins, OSullivan said he is not worried about how they get them. He just wants progress. Look at all the phases, OSullivan said. I dont really look at it that way. Im just looking for us to keep getting better day in and day out. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@ alligator.org. BASEBALL, from page 13Rebels opened second half on 26-8 runAdded Donovan: Patric made a great effort to keep it alive on the second miss. Kenny didnt have a great look, but at least we had a shot up there to try to tie it. Florida led 38-26 at halftime after shooting 7 of 14 from second half on a 26-8 run. utes, Rosario said. We gave the momentum, and I felt that they took that momentum in a positive way and just gave their team a lot of energy in the second half. Florida eventually worked its way back into the game but couldnt succeed from the charity stripe. The Gators 1 of 4 from the free-throw line. Each of Floridas three seniors had a dominant performance during the weekend. Boynton scored 16 points in the second half against AlaFloridas loss Sunday, Rosario scored a team-high 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds.

MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 15 On Wednesday, well have a breakdown of some potential upsets. Dont worry about teams that lack depth. With longer TV timeouts, rotations typically tighten in the postseason. Just because a team isnt on ESPN doesnt mean it isnt a threat. The Atlantic 10 and Mountain West MWC as the No. 3 conference in the NCAA. Heres a quick bit on each: No. 3 New Mexico: The Lobos play great defense and have good players 1-5, but theyve won 15 games by single digits. Their 29-5 record could easily be worse. No. 8 Colorado State: One of the best rebounding teams in a long time, the Rams are an experienced, physical group. No. 5 UNLV: Easily one of the most talented teams in the country, the Runnin Rebels have four players with NBA potential. But without a true point No. 7 San Diego State: Jamaal Franklin is a oneman show. He leads the Aztecs in points, rebounds, assists, steals and highlight-reel dunks. No 13 Boise State: The Broncos rely on the dynamic but inconsistent guard duo of Derrick Marks and Anthony Drmic. No. 4 St. Louis: A trendy Final Four pick, the Billikens have the guards to match up with anyone on the perimeter. No. 5 VCU: One word: havoc. The Rams lead the NCAA in forced turnovers and turnover margin, which allow them to get out and score in transition. No. 6 Butler: The Bulldogs are tough, and coach Brad Stevens always has his team ready to play in March. No. 13 La Salle: The Explorers play four guards No. 9 Temple: Owls are really, really dangerous. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. GREG, from page 13 GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer The Favorite: Indiana The team that started the season No. 1 heads into the tournament as the third No. 1 seed. offensive team and has proven capable of playing well at any pace. Led by player of the year candidates Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo, the Hoosiers are among the most talented squads in the nation. The emergence of freshman point guard Yogi Ferrell gives Indiana an explosive, defensive presence to spell sharpshooter Jordan Hulls. In many instances, the Hoosiers go as Christian Watford goes. A senior power forward, Watford has NBA talent and shoots 49.1% from three, but he doesnt always show up. The Hoosiers will need him to play his best if they intend to make a Final Four run. Top Challenger: Miami Under second-year coach Jim Larranaga, Miami won both the Atlantic Coast Conference regular season and tournament championships. The Hurricanes are tough, physical and experienced their primary seven rotation players are an average of 22 years old. Durand Scott and Reggie Johnson both missed time early this season, but the Hurricanes went on an 14-game winning streak when the duo returned to the court in January. Shane Larkin leads Miami with elite season as the starting point guard. Scott has shown the ability to be a dynamic bounding stretch four. The wildcard for the Hurricanes is the center position. Johnson is a talented but inconsistent 292-pounder who hasnt North Carolina on Sunday. His struggles have led to more minutes for Julian and protect the basket. Storyline to Watch: Will top talents shine? No. 5 seed UNLV and No. 8 seed N.C. State entered the 2012-13 season with great expectations, and neither came close to living up to them. as Anthony Marshall struggled in the transition from shooting guard to the point. N.C. State continues to be plagued by C.J. Leslies inconsistency. With four legitimate NBA talents each, either team could make a run. Player to Watch: Brandon Paul, Illinois guard far the Illini go. One of the most athletic guards in the NCAA, Paul leads Illinois with 16.6 points per game. When Paul is at his best, Illinois can beat anyone. Earlier this season, Paul scored 35 points on 10-of-16 shooting and 10-of-11 from the free-throw line as Illinois went into Spokane and handed No. 1 seed Gonzaga one of its two losses. Hell face a test right out of the gate, matching up with 6-foot-6 sophomore Spencer Dinwiddie, Colorados lead guard and star player. Sleepers: Bucknell Star center Mike Muscala (19 points per game, 11.2 rebounds per game, 2.4 blocks per game) makes the Bison a legitimate threat. Going against Butler, Bucknell wont face the type of athletic mismatches a Patriot League entrant typically would. The biggest concern for Bucknell should be Joe Willmans ability to match up with athletic point-power-forward Roosevelt Jones. If theres a mismatch to be had, Butler coach Brad Stevens will Davidson Led by the duo of Jake Cohen and DeMon Brooks, the Wildcats have the bodies to match up with Marquettes frontcourt. Davidson is an experienced unit that tournament team, but the Wildcats will have to prove they can guard Marquette on the perimeter.

The sophomore belted the game-tying and game-winning home runs as No. 3 Florida (27-3, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) took the weekend series from No. 6 Tennessee (23-6, 3-3 SEC) with a 5-3 victory on Sunday.

With the Gators down by three in the sixth inning, Haeger came to the plate with Kelsey Stewart and Kirsti Merritt on base. She unleashed on the 1-2 delivery from Volunteers pitcher Ellen Renfroe and sent it over The two teams went to extra innings for the third consecutive game after neither scored in the seventh. Fortunately for the Gators, Haeger came to the plate in the eighth with Stewart on base again. I was really just thinking base hit, Haeger said. Stewart thought differently. I actually thought they were going to walk her, Stewart said. But once they about to hit a home run. Haeger drove the 0-1 pitch to nearly home into a mass of Gators surrounding home plate. Before Haegers home run, Florida struggled on offense. Renfroe started for the second straight day. She struck out 14 batters on Saturday, but the Gators made adjustments before Sundays game and limited the junior rightnings of work. Haeger said the team switched to heavier bats for Sundays game to counter Renfroes effective off-speed pitches. We were missing the ball by 10 feet yesterday, she said. Coach Tim Walton said Renfroe pitched well on Sunday, but he chalked up the difference in results to Floridas adjustments.

MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Kat Antunes / AlligatorMark Venzke, 55, is running for mayor. Venzke ran for a City Commission seat in 2012. CITY ELECTIONS KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator WriterMark Venzke has led a colorful life. The Chicago native used to work as a conductor and tour guide on an antique railway near Orlando. He was also a Gainesville cabdriver who conducted informal quiz shows with passengers, giving chocolate as prizes for correct answers. He ran, unsuccessfully, for Gainesville city commissioner last year. But with the campaign experience under his belt, Venzke said hes ready to take it to the next level. Hes running for mayor in Tuesdays Gainesville city elections. Venzke, 55, said his No. 1 issue is revamping the citys proposed biomass plant contract to allow more resources for integrating renewable energy. Weve put all of our eggs in one basket a biomass basket, he said. We dont have any eggs left over that GRU the City of Gainesville can use to promote and to facilitate the installation of renewable energy systems. But we could do that if we renegotiate this contract. Venzke also criticized the city for information he said was withheld from the public during the negotiation stages of the contract. He said citizens didnt have a chance to discuss the contract with prescribed workshops. Thats wrong, he said. Our city leaders, and I, as mayor, would call workshops as often as we needed to get a thorough airing of issues so that we can formulate good public policy based on good information. Making public records more accessible is another item Venzke said he would tackle if elected. Under the citys current model, he said, residents must often navigate a documents theyre looking for. Its a rather Byzantine process, he said. Often, people dont get the information they need because they have to work through the system. Venzke said he would look into deinstitutionalizing the process and Reed Franklin, a 65-year-old combustion turbine technician at the Cogeneration Plant located on the UF campus has been friends with Venzke for about 10 years. He said Venzke brings a personable dimension to politics. I have a lot of respect for him, Franklin said. Hes very smart and very kind and caring and honest. Hes not a politician. Hes just into making things better. Mayoral candidate: Mark Venzke

Court decisions were reached in the Steubenville, Ohio, case: Two members of Steubenvilles celebrated high school football team were found guilty Sunday of raping a drunken 16-year-old girl, and Ohios attorney general warned the case isnt over, saying he is investigating whether coaches, parents and other students broke the law, too, The Associated Press reported. The crime, which took place after a party last summer, shocked many in Steubenville because of the seeming callousness with which other students took out their cellphones to record the attack and gossiped about it online, continued the report. In fact, the case came to light via a barrage of morningafter text messages, social media posts and online photos and video. It happened in August. Trent Mays, 17, and MaLik Richmond, 16, were sentenced Sunday to at least a year in juvenile prison. The details of the case, if you havent heard about it so far, are shocking. High schoolers took advantage of a young girl who was too intoxicated to consent to anything. The victim said, according to the AP report, she believed she was assaulted when she later read text messages among friends and saw a photo of herself naked, along with a video that made fun of her and the alleged attack. They treated her like a toy, said prosecutor Marianne Hemmeter. All of the details make us feel extremely sorry for the victim. No one should have to go through that sort of violent situation. Could you imagine someone in the national media even slightly defending the accusers? CNN did. Whats the lasting effect, though, on two young men being found guilty in juvenile court of rape, essentially? CNN anchor Candy Crowley asked on a Sunday morning broadcast. She wanted to know what this verdict meant because a 16 year old, sobbing in court, regardless of what big football players they are, they still sound like 16 year olds. Theres always that moment of just lives are destroyed, CNN legal contributor Paul Callan replied. But in terms of what happens now, the most severe thing with these young men is being labeled as registered sex offenders. That label is now placed on them by Ohio law. That will haunt them for the rest of their lives. Are we supposed to be concerned for the futures of young men who were found guilty of rape? Crowley wasnt the only CNN reporter to express that sort of emotion or concern. to watch as these two young men who had such promising futures, star football players, very good students literally watched as they believed their life fell apart. Were not sorry if their lives are ruined. We dont care how much they sobbed or broke down in court. They made an amazingly horrible mistake, and they got caught. You were your own accuser, through the social media that you chose to publish your criminal conduct on, the victims daughter is. She will persevere, grow and move on.Music helps us forget the annoying stuffWhenever I get stressed, I turn to music. So what? you say. Everybody does that. Listen, if you dont quit interrupting me, this is gonna take a lot longer than it has to. I turn to music because sometimes Im listening to a song, and its just so spot-on to what Im going through at the moment that Im taken aback. I ask myself, did I write that and then time travel to the past to sell it to Jerry Garcia? So then, I waste a bunch of time researching time travel (read: setting all the clocks in my house back 20 minutes), and Im not stressed anymore! I turn to music because its the purest form of human emotional expression. It is our best way to evoke the innate structural beauty of the universe. And thats not just some hippie s--that Im spouting off with no basis in fact. Music and mathematics are entwined rather deeply, and mathematics is the most basic method we, as humanity, possess to understand our universe. Ive heard before, from some of the folks I used to tutor in math, things like, Math is all made up. Its not real. Math is stupid. My arm hurts; when can I stop turning this generator? (That last one is what my roommate just said to me. Our electricity isnt really out, but dont tell him that.) And its true, there are things you learn in math that seem to have no equivalent in the real world. I remember volume of a sphere. This is stupid, I thought. This is just totally made up. How did they get such a weird formula? Then I got to Calc 3 and triple integrals and spherical coordinates. My teacher innocuously gave us an example problem integrating a spherical area of radius r. I dropped my pencil and stared at the paper in amazement. I had just unwittingly derived for myself the formula school angst such a long time ago. I shouted for joy. Everyone in the class gave me a weird look because my shouts for joy last thirty minutes and consist mostly of unorthodox combinations of expletives. Music is just as orderly and just as connected to the inner workings of the universe. Tons of people way smarter than I (e.g., Kepler, Pythagoras, Grover from Sesame Street) have done lifetimes worth of research on the way Man didnt invent music: He discovered it. Take scales. No caveman just sat down and invented the hypophrygian or mixolydian modes. Oog. Me invent music. Cool, Scott. I worked on the past tense and adverbial phrases all day. The notes we use in all of our various scales are separated by frequency in such a systematic way that it seems like they have to be man-made. Then, you look at acoustic waves and how they mimic the sinusoidal waves you used to graph in high school trig. Then, you hear someone play the goje, a traditional Hausa instrument developed Music, like math, is just something we humans do. We dont have to try. Music happens to us. I say all that to say: When its 4 a.m. and your neighbor has been blasting music too loudly through the walls for the past three hours, dont call the cops. Theyre probably just doing math!

14, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2013 Kelly Logan / Alligator Staff OSullivan seeking progressas he allowed just one run and struck out seven in eight innings of work. He was mixing it up, said Shafer, plate. He was throwing four pitches for strikes, and when a pitcher does that, it can make it tough. The Gators squandered an opportunity against Littrell in the third Turgeon at bat after leading off with a single. Turgeon then singled to left and two batters later was thrown out at third to end the inning on a Shafer single to right. Part of it was my fault, Mitchell said of Floridas offensive struggles against Kentucky. That couldve been a big inning. ly mentioned another blown chance the Gators had two innings later. Mitchell singled to lead off the full and grounded into a 4-6-3 double play. Harrison Bader, Shafer and Vickash Ramjit followed with back-to-back-torun of the game. If we have a different result with Caseys at-bat there, who knows what happens in that inning, OSullivan said. Though the Gators have not had many easy wins, OSullivan said he is not worried about how they get them. He just wants progress. Look at all the phases, OSullivan said. I dont really look at it that way. Im just looking for us to keep getting better day in and day out. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@ alligator.org. BasASEballBALL, from page 13Rebels opened second half on 26-8 runAdded Donovan: Patric made a great effort to keep it alive on the second miss. Kenny didnt have a great look, but at least we had a shot up there to try to tie it. Florida led 38-26 at halftime after shooting 7 of 14 from second half on a 26-8 run. utes, Rosario said. We gave the momentum, and I felt that they took that momentum in a positive way and just gave their team a lot of energy in the second half. Florida eventually worked its way back into the game but couldnt succeed from the charity stripe. The Gators 1 of 4 from the free-throw line. Each of Floridas three seniors had a dominant performance during the weekend. Boynton scored 16 points in the second half against AlaFloridas loss Sunday, Rosario scored a team-high 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds. Holloway scored 23 points on 11-of-14 shooting Sunday, while Henderson notched 21 points. The Gators have not won an SEC Tournament title since 2007. Heading into the Big Dance, the Gators are 0-6 this year decided by 11 points or more. The people trying to create this drama like our guys lack of defense. Said Rosario: The best thing about this next tournament thats coming up, NCAA Tournament, is the fact that as a team, weve been in every tight situation possible this year. Thats the beauty of it, because now we know what to expect. UF coachAP Photo HOOpsPS, from page 13

MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 15 On Wednesday, well have a breakdown of some potential upsets. Dont worry about teams that lack depth. With longer TV timeouts, rotations typically tighten in the postseason. Just because a team isnt on ESPN doesnt mean it isnt a threat. The Atlantic 10 and Mountain West MWC as the No. 3 conference in the NCAA. Heres a quick bit on each: No. 3 New Mexico: The Lobos play great defense and have good players 1-5, but theyve won 15 games by single digits. Their 29-5 record could easily be worse. No. 8 Colorado State: One of the best rebounding teams in a long time, the Rams are an experienced, physical group. No. 5 UNLV: Easily one of the most talented teams in the country, the Runnin Rebels have four players with NBA potential. But without a true point No. 7 San Diego State: Jamaal Franklin is a oneman show. He leads the Aztecs in points, rebounds, assists, steals and highlight-reel dunks. No 13 Boise State: The Broncos rely on the dynamic but inconsistent guard duo of Derrick Marks and Anthony Drmic. No. 4 St. Louis: A trendy Final Four pick, the Billikens have the guards to match up with anyone on the perimeter. No. 5 VCU: One word: havoc. The Rams lead the NCAA in forced turnovers and turnover margin, which allow them to get out and score in transition. No. 6 Butler: The Bulldogs are tough, and coach Brad Stevens always has his team ready to play in March. No. 13 La Salle: The Explorers play four guards No. 9 Temple: Owls are really, really dangerous. Contact Greg Luca at gluca@alligator.org. GREgG, from page 13 GREG LUCAAlligator Staff Writer The Favorite: Indiana The team that started the season No. 1 heads into the tournament as the third No. 1 seed. offensive team and has proven capable of playing well at any pace. Led by player of the year candidates Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo, the Hoosiers are among the most talented squads in the nation. The emergence of freshman point guard Yogi Ferrell gives Indiana an explosive, defensive presence to spell sharpshooter Jordan Hulls. In many instances, the Hoosiers go as Christian Watford goes. A senior power forward, Watford has NBA talent and shoots 49.1% from three, but he doesnt always show up. The Hoosiers will need him to play his best if they intend to make a Final Four run. Top Challenger: Miami Under second-year coach Jim Larranaga, Miami won both the Atlantic Coast Conference regular season and tournament championships. The Hurricanes are tough, physical and experienced their primary seven rotation players are an average of 22 years old. Durand Scott and Reggie Johnson both missed time early this season, but the Hurricanes went on an 14-game winning streak when the duo returned to the court in January. Shane Larkin leads Miami with elite season as the starting point guard. Scott has shown the ability to be a dynamic bounding stretch four. The wildcard for the Hurricanes is the center position. Johnson is a talented but inconsistent 292-pounder who hasnt North Carolina on Sunday. His struggles have led to more minutes for Julian and protect the basket. Storyline to Watch: Will top talents shine? No. 5 seed UNLV and No. 8 seed N.C. State entered the 2012-13 season with great expectations, and neither came close to living up to them. as Anthony Marshall struggled in the transition from shooting guard to the point. N.C. State continues to be plagued by C.J. Leslies inconsistency. With four legitimate NBA talents each, either team could make a run. Player to Watch: Brandon Paul, Illinois guard far the Illini go. One of the most athletic guards in the NCAA, Paul leads Illinois with 16.6 points per game. When Paul is at his best, Illinois can beat anyone. Earlier this season, Paul scored 35 points on 10-of-16 shooting and 10-of-11 from the free-throw line as Illinois went into Spokane and handed No. 1 seed Gonzaga one of its two losses. Hell face a test right out of the gate, matching up with 6-foot-6 sophomore Spencer Dinwiddie, Colorados lead guard and star player. Sleepers: Bucknell Star center Mike Muscala (19 points per game, 11.2 rebounds per game, 2.4 blocks per game) makes the Bison a legitimate threat. Going against Butler, Bucknell wont face the type of athletic mismatches a Patriot League entrant typically would. The biggest concern for Bucknell should be Joe Willmans ability to match up with athletic point-power-forward Roosevelt Jones. If theres a mismatch to be had, Butler coach Brad Stevens will Davidson Led by the duo of Jake Cohen and DeMon Brooks, the Wildcats have the bodies to match up with Marquettes frontcourt. Davidson is an experienced unit that tournament team, but the Wildcats will have to prove they can guard Marquette on the perimeter.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2013 Kristi Camara / Alligator Sophomore Lauren Haeger (17) swings during an at-bat in Floridas 6-5 win against SOFTBaALL ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer Lauren Haeger had the luck of the Irish with her on St. Patricks Day. The sophomore belted the game-tying and game-winning home runs as No. 3 Florida (27-3, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) took the weekend series from No. 6 Tennessee (23-6, 3-3 SEC) with a 5-3 victory on Sunday. I wore my lucky shamrocks today, Haeger said of her green earrings. plate appearances, drawing walks on 3-2 and 3-0 counts. But when she did get a chance to swing, she made her own good fortune. With the Gators down by three in the sixth inning, Haeger came to the plate with Kelsey Stewart and Kirsti Merritt on base. She unleashed on the 1-2 delivery from Volunteers pitcher Ellen Renfroe and sent it over The two teams went to extra innings for the third consecutive game after neither scored in the seventh. Fortunately for the Gators, Haeger came to the plate in the eighth with Stewart on base again. I was really just thinking base hit, Haeger said. Stewart thought differently. I actually thought they were going to walk her, Stewart said. But once they about to hit a home run. Haeger drove the 0-1 pitch to nearly home into a mass of Gators surrounding home plate. Before Haegers home run, Florida struggled on offense. Renfroe started for the second straight day. She struck out 14 batters on Saturday, but the Gators made adjustments before Sundays game and limited the junior rightnings of work. Haeger said the team switched to heavier bats for Sundays game to counter Renfroes effective off-speed pitches. We were missing the ball by 10 feet yesterday, she said. Coach Tim Walton said Renfroe pitched well on Sunday, but he chalked up the difference in results to Floridas adjustments.
