His boss owed him $200 from his part-time job, but the 26-year-old UF law student said it was the principle had worked for their money, and they didnt have it. I would still be working at Sharab if they were paying me, Carlson said. It was a job worth having. If the Alachua County Wage Recovery Program hadnt helped, Carlson said he was prepared to try small claims. But it did, and he said his past few grocery trips were Sharab Lounge, a local nightclub on South Main Street. Three former employees, includcomplaints with Alachua Countys ary after quitting Sharab and never receiving the money owed to them. Together, the debt totaled more than $2,000. Through the wage-recovery program, all employees have received their money, with the last complaint settled March 21. Shimal Patel, a supervisor at Sharab Lounge and the man accused of withholding the paychecks, said problems with workers stemmed from putting credit card tips on employees paychecks. Before, everyone got tips in cash at the end of the night. The 28-year-old said he cant call himself the owner the club is run by his family and owned by the Bora Bora Club. The complaints were settled by private negotiations through the ofup on the business, and some current employees are still working to get caught up. But his former workers have been taken care of. KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff WriterAs negotiations between Citizens Co-op management and workers who want to unionize continue, a licensed mediator was called in Thursday afternoon to help both sides cooperate. On the brick patio courtyard behind the grocery store, co-op board members as well as current and former employees sat in a ring around a long table. Jeffrey Weisberg, a mediator with River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding in Gainesville, asked both parties what success would look like for them, and he asked them to identify the core issues at play in the situation. employees present at the meeting emphasized that they want to see the co-op succeed. Right now, management and workers just dont see eye to eye on how to accomplish that. Lisa McNett, the store general manager who made about whether she would be willing to rehire them and acknowledge the union. For now, she said shes looking for an apology regarding unauthorized emails sent from the co-op account to its members. She asked the group for acknowledgment that perhaps it wasnt the wisest decision, and for accusations made in the emails about bad business practices. I feel this week Ive been under personal attack, and I dont know how to move beyond that, McNett said. She said she was referring been passing out that urges customers to confront McNett directly.

JULIA GLUMAlligator Staff Writerjglum@alligator.orgTuition and baby Gators were among topics discussed in UF Board of Trustees committee meetings Thursday. Although undocumented stutuition has captured the attention of Florida residents and news outlets, the House and Senate versions of bill have caveats that could affect all UF students. The tuition differential the maximum amount tuition can be increased per year could be reduced from 15 percent to 6 percent, said University Relations Vice President Jane Adams. That could mean less revenue for the university, but its not a major concern because the state is expected to give UF money for projects like the Newell Hall revamp. President (Bernie) Machens position on tuition differential has been: Its great to have it there, in case we need to use it, but the amount that we need to charge for tuition depends upon the amount of aid that the state gives us, Adams said. The state-mandated annual intuition 1.7 percent last year could also be eliminated. In a separate meeting, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Associate Provost Zina Evans gave data about UFs new freshmen. Decisions came out Feb. 14. UF admitted almost 13,000 people. Their average GPA was 4.4 and average SAT score 1960.SEE CO-OP, PAGE 4 Lisa McNettSEE SHARAB, PAGE 4

FRIDAY, MARCH 28, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 3 FANS FOCUS ON COMPETITION. LYNNA LAWRENCEAlligator Contributing Writer Putting money on March Madness brackets may make fans go a little bit madder, experts say. Betting on the games can reduce enjoyment for spectators, said Yong Jae Ko, a UF associate professor in the Department of Tourism, Recreation and Sport Management. The NCAA Tournament is one of the most popular tournaments in the sports gambling industry, he said. Many people create brackets that predict the matchup for each tournament game, the overall But Ko said there is a difference between fans who watch for fun and fans who watch for competition. When you increase your betting money, the enjoyment, fun aspect decreases, Ko said. Making brackets can lead fans to focus on the competition aspect rather than relaxing and enjoying the game, he said. He recommended that students separate these dimensions while watching the Gators. Jonathan Arnholz, a 20-year-old UF public relations sophomore, is the vice president of the Mens Basketball Rowdies. He said that bracket expectations have alof highly unpredictable outcomes and upsets, so most are just participating for fun and hoping that their friends brackets are worse than their own. Everybodys expecting their bracket to get busted, he said. Caitlin McVeigh, a 21-year-old UF accounting junior, makes a bracket annually to bet against her brother. Betting low amounts of money still allows her to enjoy the games, McVeigh said. Im very risk-averse, so the more money, the more scared I would be, she said. Ko said he is more interested in watching the games with his friends and family. Sport consumption is a social function, so winning and losing is not everything, he said. Its all about the memories.Brackets take fun out of gameLOCAL EMILY CARDINALIAlligator Staff Writerecardinali@alligator.orgThis morning, cyclists will cruise around the corner of Southwest Second Avenue in a synchronized line toward Volta Coffee, Tea and Chocolate. By the end of their ride, cyThe Swift-Volta ride will be every Friday through October leaving at 7:30 a.m. from Swift Cycle, 607 W. University Ave. The ride passes by Newnans Lake, returns following at Volta, 48 SW Second St. Keith Richards, co-owner of Swift Cycle and an organizer of the ride, said the partnership was a logical one for many reasons. Really, bikes and coffee just go so well together, he said. The ride spans about 23 miles, and the pace is about 15-18 mph, Richards said. We wanted something that had a little bit of distance to it but was still fairly safe, he said, and also short enough so it wouldnt be intimidating to people who havent really done a lot of group rides before. The ride has a no-drop policy, which means if a rider has a bike issue or falls behind, some of the group will stay back. If someone isnt able to keep up with the pace, we arent going to leave them somewhere out in the middle of Hawthorne, he said. Cyclists on the Swift-Volta ride receive a 10-percent discount off their purchase at Volta. It is something to show we appreciate Swift Cycle choosing us as the location of the end of the bike ride, said Kelsie Stewart, a 27-year-old Volta barista. Arthur Rosales, 27, had an espresso after taking his Cannondale Caad8 road bike on the ride. Its nice to ride with a group of companions, he said while eating a Volta quiche. It wasnt a super athletic ride. It was leisurely, and you could enjoy the scenery.

CHRISTIAN COOPERAlligator Contributing WriterUF may be climbing the ranks to preeminence, but Business Insider is now recognizing UF students at the national level as some of the brightest in the country. On Monday, Business Insider released a ranking of the top 20 colleges with the smartest student populations. UF was ranked No. 20. By using data put together by Niche, a college-ranking database based on student surveys and other factors, Business Insider combined the data of the smartest guys and girls to make its rankings. UF spokesman Steve Orlando said that although he questions the validity of the surveys, he thinks UF has some of the best students in the country. He believes the numbers back it up. For the incoming Fall class of 2014, the average GPA was 4.4, and the average SAT score was 1960. Orlando said what separates UF is the competitiveness factor. This year, out of more than 29,000 applicants, only about 13,000 were accepted. We unfortunately have to turn away he said. The ones that are actually accepted are the cream of the crop. Orlando said there are some great schools on the list, but he believes UF should be ranked higher. UF at No. 20 and New College of Florida at No. 9 were the only two schools from Florida on the list. But Kevin Lin, a 20-year-old UF chemical engineering junior, said he was somewhat surprised that UF even made the list. I am a bit surprised, considering all of the very prominent and elite schools out there, he said. However, I think this is a good sign that UF is becoming one of the academically elite schools in the nation. Orlando said he didnt think that this ranking would noticeably affect applications. Students and parents look at lots of different rankings, and there are lots of different rankings out there, he said. It sure cant hurt.UF students ranked among brightest in country Brain health tipsCourtesy of Jim Probert, a psychologist at the UF Counseling and Wellness Center.

It also got me thinking about what sort of establishment would occupy the space next. And maybe it was the joke or the pile of dirty clothes I had waiting for me that evening, but the perfect thing into a bar laundromat because thats just what the area is missing. When I signed the lease for my apartment, I completely overlooked the fact that the place Id committed to living in for the next year had no washer or dryer. I of clean clothes, and when that day came, I realized it was a much bigger problem than I thought itd be. The only laundromats Ive visited in town are sketchy, rundown and completely out of the way for anyone who doesnt own a car. The space at 12th and University is in the perfect location. Its between Midtown and downtown and in close proximity to campus. Not only would it be convenient for students but also for working professionals in the area. And because doing laundry is probably not the most popular thing in the world, I dont think anyone would object to having drinks and food at hand as a pick-me-up. Convenience aside, this kind of setup offers a ton of creative possibilities. Think names, decor and culinary creativity and, obviously, the babes you would meet. Though Im pretty sure the perfect bar laundromat name has already been taken by The Bar of Soap in Asheville, N.C., something like Tidy Whiteys or Foam For Two would work for the bar-meets-laundromat theme. I might be a little biased as far as my thoughts on the perfect use of the space since I dont own a washer, but unless you belong to a nudist colony (in which case, Im a little bit jealous), youll have to deal with washing clothes in public at one point or another, so we might as well make the experience as enjoyable as possible.

FRIDAY, MARCH 28, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 7 Rise to top 10Hello Gators, My name is Cory Yeffet, and I am the incoming Student Body president at UF. One of the things I hope to do as president is make Student Government as inclusive and transparent as possible. This coming year presents an exciting opportunity to achieve our goal of becoming a top-10 public institution, and I hope SG can continue to be part of UFs rise to the top. Since the election, I have been actively working to prepare for the coming year, and I am excited to announce the opening of applications for positions within the Executive Branch. During my time here at UF, Ive seen a great number of students make a lasting impact on campus, and I am looking for dedicated individuals who want to work together to strengthen the Gator Nation. Applications can be found plications and clicking the Executive link. Position descriptions can be found by PositionDescriptions. Applications are due April 4 by 4 p.m. If there are any questions, feel free to reach out to me or Go Gators! Cory Yeffet UF Student Body presidentLetter to the EditorSometimes its all too easy to forget the the surrounding areas of Gainesville have to offer. Case in point: A crowd gathered Monday at the University Auditorium to hear Laverne Cox speak as part of Pride Awareness Month. I wasnt fully aware of how cool this was until after it already happened. Laverne Cox Orange Is The New Black. I started the pilot episode a day after she spoke. Considering all the work I had to get done this week, that wasnt a wise decision. The award-winning comedy-drama follows Piper Chapman, a woman who gets sentenced to 15 months in womens prison for a crime she committed a decade before moving on to a quiet life in New Yorks upper-middle class. Its well known for its complex, multidimensional portrayals of diverse groups of female prisoners. Laverne Cox plays one of the inmates. Her character is Sophia reassignment surgery through credit card fraud. Even in a womens penitentiary, she struggles with others perceptions of her identity. Her character has been lauded for bringing an authentic portrayal of a trans woman to the screen. Cox herself is a trans woman and advocate for transgender rights whos noted for emphacommunity apart from gender reassignment surgery. Her success in acting, along with her writing and advocacy, has positioned her as an in society and for anyone who believes in individual self-determination. She talked about her life and experiences as a black, trans woman and shared her hope for a society where people are free judgment of others, where people arent restricted to the limited labels they are given. I am not just one, she said, and neither are you. tell and messages to pass on, shes also a pop most successful shows in the last year. And I didnt go see her. The fact that I was unaware of Coxs visit was entirely my fault. I didnt see her because of my own ignorance. I wasnt informed about what was going on around campus, and I didnt know who Cox was until she spoke here. Were fortunate enough to go to school where more interesting things go on than play the importance of all of those things. On any given day, you can walk outside and be bombarded with information, events, activities and weird things at a rate normally reserved for festivals and the worlds largest cities. public relations representatives giving people free beef jerky and teaching them how to use lassos just a short walk away from Krishna lunch.

Yunji Rodriguez during the UF Air Force ROTC Detachments Career Day on Thursday afternoon. HE PERFORMED THURSDAY. CHLOE FINCHAlligator Staff WriterRob Schneider is a long way from his Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo days. Now that hes older, he said, he notices commercials aimed toward adults more. What theyre all really saying is, he said, Is your d**k no good? Try this. Schneider, known for his starring roles in The Animal and The Hot Chick, appeared at the Curtis M. Phillips Center Thursday for the Inter-Residence Hall Associations IRHAPalooza: A Night of Comedy. He took shots at everything from former President George W. Bush to the awkwardness of dirty talk to Floridas terrifying swamps. In Florida, Schneider said, you can visit your grandparents, go to an amusement park, see a space shuttle launch, get a hot dog served by a girl in a bikini and get eaten by an alligator in a swamp. Thats a pretty strange combination, he said. Perla Pimentel, a Phillips Center employee, said about 643 tickets were distributed for the show. IRHAPalooza: A Night of Comedy was the kickoff event for IRHAs annual Residence Hall Week. He did a good job combining political issues with comedy, said Daniella DeLucia, a 19-year-old UF anthropology sophomore. And he did a lot of jokes about Florida. Those were great. Matthew, a 20-year-old UF food science and human nutrition sophomore, added. Students in the audience laughed and cringed as Schneider insulted the guns-rights proponents and the National Security Administration, delivered impressions of everyone from his Filipino mother to a Nazi. Before concluding his routine, he gave the audience some comic relief after a discussion of Zen Buddhism and the Big Bang. You can do it, he bellowed into the microphone as students clapped and cheered.Rob Schneider talks Florida, dirty talk and growing olderCAMPUS GRIFFIN HORVATHAlligator Contributing WriterUFs Wildlife Society chapter earned seven individual arts awards at Clemson University during the Wildlife Society Conclave last weekend.

Justin VanGorder, a 26-year-old UF wildlife ecology and conservation senior, said he enjoyed participating because he was able to display his knowledge in animal tracking. The team wore matching jorts and T-shirts during the team challenge event to mimic the stereotype placed on them by out-of-state students at last years conclave, Slade said. Other schools always make fun of Florida for our jorts and scooters, he said.

DOMINIC UTTERAlligator Contributing WriterUF civil engineering students are participating in a regional competition to showcase the project they have invested hundreds of hours during the past year to complete. The UF Steel Bridge Team is competing in the American Society of Civil Engineers southeast conference in Tampa to qualify for the national conference. The teams bridge, constructed entirely of steel, is 5 feet high and 17 feet long one-tenth the size of an actual bridge, said team co-captain Andrew De Alba, a 23-year-old UF civil engineering senior. Designing the bridge took the After crafting the pieces, the team practiced building the bridge in the fastest time possible. For two months, Kyle Willems, a 20-year-old UF civil engineering sophomore and assembly team member, practiced Last year, the team was penalized for design choices that went against regulation, which kept them from qualifying for nationals. Weve put a lot of time into practicing, and everyone will be doing their best to avoid penalties, Willems said. De Alba said he is competing for a second year because it lets him apply his knowledge from class on a real-life project. Ive ever done is to design something on paper and see it get built exactly how I drew it up, he said. That is what a structural engineer does for a living, and having the chance to do it in school is incredibly rewarding.UF bridge club competes in SEC KYLE FOLLANSBEEAlligator Contributing WriterA new app launched last week could make communicating in the Swamp on gamedays a little easier. The new app FireChat in its nearby mode, does not need Internet access, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and can exchange 30 feet to 100 feet apart. Anyone with an iOS 7-capable device can use the app, said Christophe Daligault, vice president of sales and marketing for Open Garden Inc., the founding company. The app can be used on iPhone, iPad and iPod devices, and tech websites are reporting that its getting 100,000 downloads daily across the world. Its perfect for situations where connectivity is not great such as public transportation, outdoors, clubs, festivals and probably many campuses, too, Daligault wrote in an email. FireChat takes advantage of Apples Multipeer Connectivity Framework, which is why iOS 7 is required. The app is available free on iOS 7 devices, and the company is developing a version for Android. Andrew Selepak, director of the masters of arts in mass communication in social media at UF, said the software is limited by the hardware. Its going to be limited to just students with the new operating system, Selepak said. Its a peer-to-peer network. The more people that can use it the better the network is. However, if something catastrophic happened, this type of communication can be useful, Selepak said or even during a crowded game in the Swamp, where getting any kind of sigA combination of Facebook fatigue, privacy concerns and poor connectivity on mobile devices is supporting the growth and success of FireChat, Daligault said.

The group wants Wendys restaurants to commit to the Fair Food Program by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. THE ASSOCIATED PRESSLOS ANGELES Arriving fashionably late, a Russian spacecraft carrying three astronauts docked with the International Space Station Thursday evening 250 miles over Brazil. The crew aboard the orbiting outpost congratulated the latest members Russians Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev and NASAs Steve Swanson. sion control commentator Rob Navias. The trio blasted off from Kazakhstan on Wednesday local time aboard a Soyuz rocket for what was supposed to be a sixhour straight shot to the space station. But an engine burn designed not occur as planned, delaying the docking. Two rendezvous maneuvers were executed to put the Soyuz on course. The astronauts were never in danger. Jaunts to the space station used to take two days. Last year, engineers experimented with a way to cut the trip down to six hours by compressing the number of times raise its orbit to meet the space station. Had the latest trip been on schedule, it would have been would have taken the fast Engineers were investigating the snag but believe the burn didnt occur because the Soyuz was not in the right position. The new crew, which will stay in orbit for six months, joined Japans Koichi Wakata, NASAs Rick Mastracchio and Russias Mikhail Tyurin. Since the retirement of the depended on the Russians to hitch a ride to the space station, paying nearly $71 million per seat. Despite the frosty relationship on Earth between the U.S. and Russia over the annexation of Crimea, politics has not affected the cooperation in space. NASA has been working to develop its own space taxi to the orbiting laboratory through contracts with two private companies including Californiabased SpaceX founded by billionaire Elon Musk. SpaceXs fourth supply run set for Sunday was postponed because of a problem at the Florida launch site. It was the second delay this month. The company said earlier it needed more time. SpaceXs unmanned capsule named Dragon will haul two tons of supplies and experiments. It will also deliver a pair of legs for the humanoid robot at the space station. Until now, the torso-only Robonaut has been stuck on a pedestal.Russian craft docks with space station after delay CATTLE COULD BE TREATED BEFORE SLAUGHTER. ALEXIA MARCHETTIAlligator Contributing WriterTraditional antibiotics, its time to moo-ve over. UF researchers created a new ine diseases, which could go on to improve food safety. Kwang Jeong, assistant professor in animal sciences and UFs Emerging Pathogens Institute, said his team used chitosan microparticles, a natural antibiotic antimicrobial material made of crustacean shells, to kill bacteria, including E. coli, a bacteria known to cause illness. The cows treated had a uterine disease, which Jeong said was important because those cows cause a huge economic loss in the U.S. The estimated loss is about have a uterine disease, their meat or dairy products Jeongs team tested 10 cows. They wanted to compare the results of the traditional antibiotics and the chitosan microparticles on killing the E. coli. He said the natural chitosan microparticles were as effective at killing the E. coli as were the traditional antibiotics. The problem with the traditional antibiotics is that bacteria was becoming more resistant to the antibiotics, he said. With the chitosan microparticles, there are low odds the bacteria will become resistant. Klibs Galvao, an assistant professor at the College of Veterinary Medicine in the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences, said alternatives such as the chitosan microparticles has potential for treatment in humans. For now, the researchers are testing the microparticles on more cows to show the effectiveness among more animals, Galvao said. We want to make chitosan mivao said. Then the cattle can be treated before they go to slaughter so they arent contaminated and it Jeong Rob Navias

FRIDAY, MARCH 28, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Live Gator basketball updatesFollow alligatorSports assistant editor Landon Watnick (@LandonWatnick) and online editor Jonathan Czupryn (@jczupryn) on Twitter for updates from Floridas Elite Eight matchup against Dayton on Saturday.Gators in the NBAFormer UF forward Chandler Parsons scored 16 points and recorded seven assists in Houstons 120-98 win against the Trail Blazers on Thursday.Hannah Rogers and the UF softball team begin a series against UT today. Read the story on page 16. LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnickMEMPHIS, Tenn. In the midst of a shooting slump one that saw him shooting 2 of 10 against UCLA for much of Thursday nights contest Scottie Wilbekin did not panic. As the Gators led 58-55 with 7:18 left and struggled for much of the second half to pull away from the feisty Bruins, the senior point guard refused to dwell on his missed attempts. Instead, he made three key shots down the stretch and sent UF to its fourth consecutive trip to the Elite Eight. Wilbekin was the hero for No. 1 seed Florto help it cruise past No. 4 seed UCLA 79-68 in the FedExForum in the South Regional semiJust trying to keep attacking, stay aggressive and take what they gave me, Wilbekin said. half, even in the beginning of the second half. So I just tried to stay the course and keep playing my game. Saturday at 6:09 p.m., UF will face 11thseeded Dayton the Cinderella of this years tournament for a spot in the Final Four. And much of why UF is where it is now is because of Wilbekin. proved why he is Floridas seasoned leader and perhaps its most valuable player. After shooting guard Michael Frazier II knocked lead, Wilbekin sunk a three from the right wing on the next Gators offensive possession to lift the advantage to 63-55. Out of a UCLA timeout, Wilbekin kept the streak moving. Drawing a foul on UCLA guard Norman Powell, Wilbekin took it to the hole and made a circus shot off the glass. He sunk his free throw to increase the Gators lead to 11 points, tying its largest advantage of the contest. From there, Florida held on. With 2:38 on the clock and the Gators running an isolation play for Wilbekin, he dribbled through two defenders, maneuvered his way around Travis Wear in the paint and sunk a hook shot over the UCLA forward to give UF a 70-63 lead. I was just trying to get a shot up on the backboard and at least give the bigs a chance to rebound, but it ended up going in, Wilbekin said. Added coach Billy Donovan: He got kind good job on him a couple plays before that. We put four guys on the baseline when Wear got switched on Scottie and drove around him and got a layup. Wilbekin also helped his teammates thrive Thursday. Playing alongside freshman Kasey Hill for much of the second half, the senior shifted at the two spot as the younger point guard notched a game-high 10 assists. Scottie, for the most part, when Kaseys said. It takes a pretty mature player to say, Im going to slide off the ball. Im going to give the ball to a freshman. three-point shooting. The sophomore helped three early three-pointers. ished with seven points and three rebounds, Checking in with about four minutes left in give UF a 36-30 advantage at halftime. Walker helped the thin Gators manage when Casey Prather and Patric Young battled foul trouble down the stretch, as each had four fouls. Hes getting better, and hes growing, Donovan said. You know, it was really a game where I never felt Patric was ever in Florida advances to Elite Eight ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer@alichtenstein24The Gators defeated the top team in the nation Tuesday, but now they have to beat one of the best pitchers. Ace pitcher Aaron Nola will take the hill for No. 4 LSU (20-5, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) against Florida (16-9, 3-3 SEC) tonight at 7:30 p.m. at McKethan Stadium. Hes arguably one of the best in the country, if not the best, coach Kevin OSullivan said. Nola, the star pitcher of a Tigers staff that boasts an ERA of 1.85, leads the SEC with a 0.22 ERA, which ranks third in the nation. He also leads the conference in strikeouts (56) and averages more than a punch out per inning. When he faced Florida last season in Baton Rouge, La., Nola tossed a complete-game shutout, striking out three batters while allowing only four hits in LSUs 5-0 win on May 3, 2013. He threw pretty well, second baseman Casey Turgeon said. He spots his fastball and he makes pitches when he needs to. A guy who can do that is usually pretty successful in college. Nolas command is what allows him to dominate opposing hitters. None of the juniors pitches are usually rated above a 60 on the 20-80 scouting scale, but the 6-foot-1 right-hander has shown the ability to locate the ball and limit his walks. Through 40.1 innings this season, he has a 7:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The fact that he can locate multiple pitches for strikes (makes Nola effective), Gators facing one of nations top pitchers in series openerJordan McPherson / Alligator StaffScottie Wilbekin drives down the court during Floridas 79-68 win in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament against UCLA on Thursday in FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tenn.

left-handed pitcher Bobby Poyner said. He can really locate the ball. Although his command and pitching skills takes him from solid pitcher to one of the countrys best, Nolas pure stuff is nothing to sneeze at. The juniors fastball sits in the low to mid 90s, and he throws a strong changeup and slider. Hes got some dominating pitches, OSullivan said. Hes 90-94, he keeps the ball down, he locates No. 1 probably better than anybody in our league. Hes got a good breaking ball, a good changeup. If that wasnt enough, Nolas arm angle makes it even hitters to pick up the pitches coming out of his hand. I think its his slot and the sink on his ball, shortstop Richie Martin said. Its a little unusual. It comes like three-quarter, a little sidearm Its a different look. Up against Nola will be Florida sophomore Eric Hanhold (3-2, 3.18 ERA). Hanhold has made 12 appearances this season but only two of those were starts. In his last outing, Hanhold went four innings against Texas A&M, surrendering picking up the loss. OSullivan said he moved Hanhold to Friday night ahead of freshman phenom Logan Shore who will start Saturday in order to give Shore a rest. Hes thrown two games back to back 100 pitches, OSullivan said. Eric only threw 65 pitches or so last Saturday, so I thought it would be smart to do that. Just give Logan one more day. Hanhold will need to improve upon his last start, because runs will certainly be at a premium tonight for the Gators offense. chip away at him, Martin said. We cant give any opportunities away. When we get runners in scoring position, we have to take advantage. Its going to be a tough night. FRIDAY, MARCH 28, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 15 FLORIDA IS IN FIFTH IN THE SEC. IAN COHENAlligator Writer@ibcohen5The Gators road trip didnt go quite as they had hoped. No. 4 Florida (13-4, 5-2 Southeastern Conference) has lost two of its last four matches, defeating Tennessee and Auburn but falling short against then-No. 11 Georgia and No. 8 Alabama. UF will look to improve its play against SEC opponents when it faces Arkansas (7-5, 2-6 SEC) today at 3 p.m. A year after winning its last conference championship, the Gators are having a harder time of it this season. They have easily handled the SECs weaker teams Missouri, South Carolina and UT but have been inconsistent against the conferences elite. In the SEC, thats easier said then done. Alabama sits atop the conference and is currently riding an 11-match winning streak, its longest of the season. Two spots below Alabama rests Georgia, a team coach Roland Thornqvist openly declared as his pick to win the national championship in May. Both teams defeated Florida, although home-court advantage may have been the deciding factor. The Gators sit in sixth place in the conference, safely above the mediocre teams but hovering just underneath the SECs upper echelon. Despite its middle-ofthe-pack standing in its own conference, UF is ranked fourth in the nation, moving up from last weeks No. 5 ranking despite losing to Alabama. In fact, the Gators have more losses then the No. 5 and 6 teams combined. Sophomore Brianna Morgan will be key to getting the team on track. In the Gators last two matches, Thornqvist started Morgan above senior Olivia Janowicz on Court 1. It was a move that the coach hinted at earlier in the season. [Brianna] had that little shoulder injury that set her back and she couldnt train much over break, he said. When she trains for an extended period of time she could be one of the top three or four players in the country, no question about it I still think were going to see the best tennis she has later on. In addition, Florida has a favorable schedule ahead. Four of its last six matches are at home and all are against SEC opponents. UF boasts a 187-1 all-time record against conference teams at home. Perhaps a lineup change and a bit of scheduling luck will be enough to propel the Gators back atop the SEC, beginning with Arkansas today.Florida attempting to right losing streak in home match tonight BASE, from page 14Hanhold will make start against Nola to begin home seriesWalker helps Gators off of bench thought Prathers fouls probably hurt us a little bit. So Chris coming off the bench gave us good, quality minutes. Now on a 29-game winning streak, the Gators head into a matchup with the Flyers, who handled No. 10 seed Stanford 82-72 prior to the Florida-UCLA game. Florida has a history of crushing the hopes of Cinderellas under Donovan. Last year, UF knocked off No. 15 seed FGCU 62-50 in the Sweet 16 and in 2006 routed No. 11 seed George Mason 73-58 in the Final Four. Final Four appearance since 2007, the Gators must put their past Elite Eight failures behind them. Me personally, I dont feel like theres anything to enjoy, Frazier said. Were trying to keep advancing, and you cant take a breath because every team now is a good team. So we can enjoy what weve done after the season. Writer Jordan McPherson contributed to this report.

The Gators (31-4, 5-4 Southeastern Conference) and the Volunteers (28-3, 5-1 SEC) are tied for second in the conference with a 1.76 ERA. Were going to have to pitch well, coach Tim Walton said in a release after UFs 10-6 win against UCF on Wednesday. Weve got to go out and pitch well, set the tempo and Tennessee has three pitchers with sub-2.00 ERAs with Ellen Renfroe (18-0) taking the bulk of the pitches. The senior right-handed pitcher is second in the SEC with a 1.34 ERA in 120 innings pitched and is holding opponents to a .167 clip at the plate. Her 8.3 strikeouts per game average ranks fourth in the conference and 45th in the country. Renfroe, a two-time SEC Pitcher of the Week this season, has thrown 16 complete games eight were shutouts. Like Tennessee, a senior leads Florida in the circle. Right-hander Hannah Rogers (14-3) leads Florida with a 1.57 the SEC while striking out 79 batters in 93.2 innings pitched this season. But unlike the Volunteers, the Gators have two other pitchers who have logged more than 50 innings in the circle this season. Freshman Delanie Gourley has shown growth through her ters in just 80.2 innings. The Lakeside, Calif., native holds an 11-1 record and is 2-1 against ranked opponents this season. Her only loss came against Alabama on March 21. And while she has only pitched 11.2 innings since SEC action began, junior Lauren Haeger is still a valuable asset for the Gators on the mound. In 52.2 innings this season, the Peoria, Ariz., native boasts a 1.73 ERA and is holding opponents to a team-low .145 batting average. While UFs pitchers struggled during its midweek win against UCF walking a season-high eight batters and giving up seven hits and six runs Walton believes his pitching staff will rebound from its struggles when it faces Tennessee. I think the pitchers are going to give the hitters condence, Walton said. When you play a good team like were getting ready to play, its going to come down to trying opponents opportunities to score.Florida, Tennessee look to dominant pitchers for seriesWOMENS GOLF EMILY COCHRANEAlligator Writer @EmilySCochraneThe Gators have spent all but one of their three-round tournaments lingering around ninth or 10th place on the leaderboard. Florida will have a chance to end the regular season on a high note when the team tees off this morning at the Bryan National Collegiate co-hosted by UNC Greensboro and Wake Forest in Greensboro, N.C. Florida takes on six other top-25 teams and two Southeastern Conference opponents at the Bryan Park Golf and Enrichment Center Champions Course. This is a golf course that Glaser called challenging but fair in a release. We really dont know what the weather will be like or what the course will be like, Glaser said. We have to mentally prepare for that. score of 887(+23). It will be a good test of the work we have been doing, Glaser said. The goal is to trust it this week and be in the mix come Sunday. Following her season-best performance leaderboard at the 2014 Gator Invite, junior Camilla Hedberg leads the Gator lineup this morning. Hedberg is the only Florida player who has played the Greensboro greens in the past. Freshman Maria Torres made the lineup with a 73.2 stroke average and a top-15 SEC tournament. Fellow freshman Karolina Vlckova and junior Sarah Schober, who has a team-best stroke average of just under 73, will also play for Florida. Redshirt sophomore Katie Mitchell also made the lineup, successfully competing in every single tournament during the 2014 season. Elcin Ulu, the only senior on the team, did not make the lineup for what would ment as a Gator. This is a great event to close out the regular season, Glaser said. The team is excited.Hedberg
