UF QUIDDITCH


UF can't catch snitch, loses Swamp Cup


By THOMAS NASSIFF
Alligator Writer

The scene at Kanapaha Park
had all the symptoms of a typical
Sunday afternoon.
Children played in the fields
as families munched on their pic-
nic lunches and flew kites, taking
in the warm, breezy day.
But on one large field, there
was something different.
A crowd of people swarmed
around a group of college stu-
dents who ran around with pre-
tend broomsticks between their
legs, trying to throw a volley-
ball through a trio of makeshift
hoops.

"There were quite a few
snags, but we managed to
recover very quickly. On the
whole, everyone seems to
be pretty happy with how
things turned out."
Nick Murado
president of the UF Quidditch
club

The first Quidditch Swamp
Cup was held this weekend, fea-
turing six Quidditch teams from
the around the state.
Hosted by the UF Quidditch


team, the event was the first re-
gional cup in the history of the
International Quidditch Asso-
ciation, which was based on the
sport made famous by J.K Rowl-
ine's Harry Potter novels.


Nick Murado, the president of
the UF Quidditch club, said the
team played very well over the
weekend but was plagued by a
couple unfortunate events that
prevented it from advancing to


the finals.
"Despite the fact that we
didn't make it to the finals," Mu-
rado said, "I still think we're the
best team out here."
UF won most of its prelimi-

to the playoffs to compete with
teams from Ringling College of
Art and Design, the University
of Miami and the University of
South Florida.
The Gators team went 1-2 in
the first round of the playoffs,
failing advance to the final series,
which saw Miami beat Ringling
for the Swamp Cup title.
Murado said the tournament
was run very efficiently, espe-
cially considering it was its first
year.
About 50 people watched the
best-of-three final series on Sun-
day.

Despite the UF team's disap-
pointing showing, Hannah Pohl-
mann, a co-director of the Swamp
Cup and a Beater for the UF team,
said the group was looking for-
ward to the future.
"I'm happy with where we're
at, and we had a wonderful tour-
nament," Pohlmann said. "For
the first regional cup ever, it all
went really well. Next year we
want to make things way bigger
for the Swamp Cup."


Shakespeare troupe puts on spring performance


The group performed 'Macbeth' three times this weekend


By MORGAN WATKINS
Alligator Writer

As the sun set over the Plaza of the
Americas on Saturday night, three wom-
en with dirt-smudged faces, torn clothes
and leaves in their tangled hair gathered
around a tire.
"Double, double toil and trouble; fire
burn, and cauldron bubble," they said as
smoke bubbled over the black rubber.
A few minutes later, the three women


backed away from the cauldron to make
room for Macbeth.
Bright white lights flashed behind Mac-
beth as a man crept forward like a zombie.
It was Banquo, the man whose death Mac-
beth himself had ordered. His shirt and
neck were stained with his own blood.
This was one of the darkest scenes in
Shakespeare's play "Macbeth," which UF
students performed for audiences seated
on blankets and foldout chairs on the Pla-
za of the Americas over the weekend.


The students were members of Shake-
speare in the Park, a UF club that reenacts
the noted playwright's work with a per-
sonal twist. Their performance of "Mac-
beth" called for the use of
On leather jackets, hubcaps, ham-
Campus mers, baseball bats and a fake
severed head.
The club, which includes students from
a variety of majors, performs one Shake-
spearean play each year. While in the past
they have done comedies, such as "Much


Ado About Nothing," the students chose
the darker "Macbeth" to challenge them-
selves, said Noah Camenker, the club's
secretary.
"We want to be a complete Shakespeare
organization," said Camenker, who acts
as one of Macbeth's handpicked hit men
in the performance. "We want to branch
out."
The play revolves around a Scottish
general, Macbeth, who claws his way to
the throne through murder and deceit
with the help of his wife. After killing the
King of Scotland, Duncan, Macbeth goes

Mom forces son to stand on Tampa street corner for bad grades


TAMPA - Wearing a sign around his
neck that read, "Honk if I need an educa-
tion," 15-year-old James Mond III stood for
nearly four hours on a Tampa street corner.
Fed up with his bad grades, his mother
sent him there hoping to teach him a lesson
about the importance of an education.
Ronda Holder never finished high
school and doesn't want the same for her
son.
So she sent him out Wednesday with a


sign telling the world about his 1.22 GPA.
His middle school has since enrolled
him in after-school tutoring.
The Department of Children and Fami-
lies is investigating whether the incident
might be a form of maltreatment.
Holder says she doesn't care about the
critics. She wants her son to have an educa-
tion.
Plenty of people honked.

GatorNights celebrates 10 years


* UF PRESIDENT BERNIE MACHEN WAS ON HAND.

By GREG LUCA
Alligator Staff Writer

After 10 years and tons of free midnight breakfasts, Gator-
Nights is still going strong.
Florida's weekly late-night program celebrated its 10-year an-
niversary Friday in the Reitz Union with many of its usual festivi-
ties, plus a little added flair.
This week's installment featured funnel cakes, candy apples
and four birthday cakes. There were also carnival games, balloon
animals, a screening of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"
and guest appearances from Albert, Alberta and UF President
Bernie Machen.
"This program is one of the really positive things that's been
done and shows what the university is and what it can be all
about," Machen said.

A pinecone-finding contest pulled Loy-
al Frisbie-Knudsen back to Gainesville.
He said the contest, run by Satchel's
Pizza, illustrates the relaxed atmosphere
that makes Gainesville an enjoyable
place to live. He said residents don't rush
through life; they take time to enjoy it.
"It was UF that brought me here and
Gainesville that persuaded me to stay,"
Frisbie-Knudsen, 34, said.
He is one of tens of thousands of resi-
dents who settled in Alachua County in
the past 10 years.
The 2010 census results show that the


He emphasized the program's ability to provide students a
fun, unifying experience without the use of alcohol.
In the wake of recent tragedies and with the majority of UF
students being under 21, Machen suggests GatorNights to them.
"To them I offer GatorNights as a wonderful example of how
you can have a wonderful time with your peers and friends with-
out an alcohol component to that experience," Machen said.
A pair of GatorNights alums, Jamal Sowell and Britney Swink,
followed Machen at the podium and echoed his sentiments.
Swink said her time working with the program
On helped her develop relationships with hundreds of
Campus "regulars," people she became close with despite
seeing them only on a weekly basis.
Sowell said he never missed a Friday at GatorNights in his
four years at UF, saying he wasn't a big fan of clubs, drinking and
the whole downtown scene.
"I've seen the world, but, regardless of what I did, I always
remembered GatorNights," Sowell said. "GatorNights does have
a place in my heart."


county grew by 29,381 people since 2000,
putting the latest population count at
247,336.
"There's advantagestc I, ii i.. ri."
county manager Ran-
dall Reid said. "We're
known as a community
of a very high quality of
life."
While that growth
is good, Reid said, it
I I comes at a cost. More
Reid people means more
services to provide. He
said the county government will take the
population increase into consideration
when planning next year's budget.


Reid said that UF's growth has added
to the county's quality of life.
"Part of the reason people enjoy the
university community, even for the retired
community, is they provide the hope and
the security that life goes on," he said.
UF grew by 4,009 students from 2000
to 2010, putting last year's enrollment at
50,116 students, according to the Office of
the University Registrar.
Several minority populations in the
county, including Asian, Hispanic and
Pacific Islander, more than doubled in the
last decade, and the rest grew more than
10 percent.
"We are culturally more diverse, not
only racially but culturally," Reid said.

Harvard professor speaks here on race in U.S.


In 2009, Harvard Professor Henry Louis
Gates Jr., an African-American, was arrested
by a white police officer while attempting to
gain entry into his own home. The incident
forced the nation to turn its attention to the
case and consider issues of race and class in
the United States. Harvard Law Professor
Charles Ogletree served as Gates' attor-
ney in the case, and the charges were later
dropped.
Ogletree's latest book, "The Presumption
of Guilt: The Arrest of Henry Louis Gates,
Jr. and Race, Class and Crime in America,"
details the Gates incident and uses it as a
springboard to look at broader issues of race
in America.
Ogletree will give the UF Center for the
Study of Race and Race Relations' 2011
Spring Lecture. His talk is titled, "Are We
in A Post-Racial Society? Race in America
Today." The free lecture will be given at
noon Thursday at the University of Florida
Levin College of Law, in Holland Hall,
Room 180.


Not only has
Ogletree made a
name for himself
as a prominent
legal theorist,
criminal defense
attorney and
an influential
champion of
civil rights, he
has written and
lectured widely Charles Ogletree
on issues of Charles Ogletree
racial profiling, capital punishment, repara-
tions and juvenile justice.
During the confirmation hearings for
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence
Thomas, Ogletree was a member of Profes-
sor Anita Hill's legal team. Ogletree has
served as moderator on nationally televised
forums and appeared as a guest commenta-
tor on multiple television shows including
"Nightline," "The Today Show," "Larry
King Live," "Meet the Press" and the joint

Ogletree is the Jesse Climenko profes-
sor of law and the director of the Charles
Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and

Hypnotist puts students in trance, helps set goals


* 200 PEOPLE ATTENDED THE ACT
IN JENNINGS HALL ON FRIDAY.

By MARGEAUX NELSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF junior Courtney Read said almost all
she can recall from her hypnosis was riding a
motorcycle in a sandy, cactus-filled desert in
Arizona.
Hypnotist Rich Alexander put Read into a
deep sleep on stage in front of about 200 stu-
dents Saturday. Read said she couldn't believe
how up close and personal she became with
the other participants, falling asleep on their
laps and .:. .1 -,- ,, onto the floor.


Ten students were hypnotized during the
Inter-Residence Hall Association's "Magical
Mystery Tour" in Jennings Hall Saturday eve-
ning. They spoke imitation foreign languages,
belly-danced, surfed and became Lady Gaga,
when, in reality, their actions were merely fig-
ments of their imagination.
When the hypnotist put the volunteers into
a deep sleep, spectators moved to the edge of
their seats, some flooding the front of the stage
to get a better view.
At one point, Alexander told the partici-
pants that the shoulder of the person next to
them would have a heavenly scent. UF junior
Lee Penn couldn't believe he allowed himself
to get so physically close to others.
"I don't normally touch other people, yet


I was getting all over some girl's shoulder,"
Penn said.
To be hypnotized, Penn said he had to put
himself in a state of mind where he truly be-
lieved what Alexander was telling him.
"Ifs like when you watch a movie and you
have to suspend your disbelief to
Student get into it," Penn said. "I had to
Life think that it was real."
Although the students did
things they usually wouldn't do, Alexander
said hypnosis can occur only by one's own
will.
"Ifs a mental tool that we all have and most
people don't understand," Alexander said. "If
you have the attitude that you can't be hypno-
tized, it'll never happen."


Having hypnotized about 20,000 people
throughout his career, Alexander said he
uses hypnotism not only to entertain but also
to teach people how they can improve their
lives.
Alexander has used clinical hypnosis to
help people quit smoking, lose weight and re-
lieve stress and anxiety.
At the end of his act, Alexander told partic-
ipants they would have the ability to set goals
for themselves from that day forward.
Since the hypnotism, Read said she feels
more driven to set and achieve goals.
"I don't know if it's me psyching myself
out because I followed what he said to do
while I was hypnotized," Read said, "but I do
believe it."


The group performed on

the Plaza of the Americas
SHAKESPEARE, from page 1

on a warpath, eliminating all who get in his way until he himself
is beheaded.
About 100 people attended Saturday night's performance,
which Bethany Koch, the club's president, described as its best
yet.
Casting for "Macbeth" took place in the middle of the fall se-
mester, she said. The students practiced twice a week for the re-
mainder of the term. In the spring, they practiced three times a
week to prepare.
Since its formation in 2006, Shakespeare in the Park has grown
every year, Camenker said.
"Every year we get a little bigger, a little better organized," he
said. "I want to come back in 10 years and see a Shakespeare in
the Park show."
Pamela Cayemitte, a UF senior who attended the play, said it
picked up the pace in the second half. She was impressed with the

most need of blessing, and 'Amen' stuck in my throat!"

Harn to add Asian art wing


The expansion

will be finished

in spring 2012
By DANIELLE ALVAREZ
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Harn Museum of Art will open an ex-
panded 26,000-square-foot Asian art wing to
the public in spring 2012.
The new wing will hold 2,000 Asian art
works from the permanent collection on ro-
tating view.
David A. Cofrin and his wife, Mary Ann,
gave the museum a $10 million gift in sup-
port of the museum's new oriental expan-
sion.
Cofrin entrusted a $1 million endowment
for the acquisition of Asian art and 312 art
pieces valued at $4.1 million.
The wing will feature two Asian-inspired


gardens, which will be named after Cofrin.
The galleries will be dedicated to art
pieces from China, India, Japan, Korea, and
South and Southeast Asia.
This will make the museum the leading
southeastern U.S. center for the study and
preservation of Asian art influence.
"The new wing will create immense op-
portunities for engagement and collabora-
tion with students and professors across
academic departments at the University of
Florida," said Jason Steuber, the Cofrin cu-
rator of Asian art. "The Harn
On Museum will expand its leader-
Campus ship role as a noted center for
Asian art exhibitions, symposia,
research and scholarly publications."
Tami Wroath, director of marketing and
public relations at the museum, said the
Harn Museum will host a special "Museum
Nights" event to celebrate the opening of the
art wing.
Wroath said that over the next four to six
months the team will announce the official
opening date.


Aundre Larrow/ Alligator
A section of the Ham Museum of Art is under construction as a 26,000-square-foot Asian
art wing is built for release to the public in spring 2012. The additions to the Asian art wing
will make it the leading center for the study and preservation of Asian art in the southeast.

Editorial

Line in the Sand

U.S. actions in Libya

cue Iraq comparisons
The president must understand our fears about the
situation in Libya. Why else would he stress his un-
derstanding of the risks of any military action? Why
would he emphasize and repeat his intentions of keeping
U.S. troops off Libyan soil? Obama is seeing what we're
seeing - a frighteningly familiar scenario of international
forces intervening in a country on the brink, complete with
the undertones of terrorism and the memorable words of a
crazy dictator. We've seen this movie before, and we know
how it goes. Or do we?
We'll be quick to point out that, according to our lead-
ers, this military action isn't being led by the United States.
Instead, it seems that the French, of all people, have taken
charge. Also, there is more of a focus on the international
outcry in the face of Gaddafi's treatment of his own people.
After all, the steps everyone is taking are in response to
the UN's imposition of a no-fly zone, which was requested
by Libya's own neighbors in the Arab League. Mere hours
after the beginning of the military action, however, these
neighbors began objecting to the use of force in the coun-
try. Bombings that kill civilians, they say, shouldn't be part
of an operation meant to protect people from their own
government.
Indeed, the international community may be shooting
itself in the foot. We obviously are at odds with Gaddafi
and his ilk, alarmed by the idea that someone would at-
tack his fellow countrymen from the air. He has a reputa-
tion for sponsoring terrorist attacks, as John 0. Brennan,
Obama's senior adviser on counterterrorism, has remind-
ed us. Although we're too young to remember it, our par-
ents have told us about the fate of Pan Am Flight 103. The
threat is real.
There is another problem in who will replace Gaddafi.
In the best-case scenario, a democracy will take root where
politicians listen to the people, stay free of corruption and
are friendly to the U.S. and our allies. Our own govern-
ment doesn't even accomplish two of those three on a
regular basis.
And the worst case? We'll get someone who has the
mental stability of the old leader, a background in terror-
ism and the evidence to turn his people off to the U.S. and
the UN if we continue to count civilians among the casual-
ties of the military action. This assumes we are success-
ful in ousting Gaddafi, the same man who swore to kill
every last man, woman and child in Libya before he gave
up power. The idea of pacifying the leader without finish-
ing the job sounds entirely too much like Iraq. It makes
us worry. It also harkens back to the questions we asked
years ago: Should we get involved in another country's
internal problems - and when are we harming more than
we are helping? In addition, we're now left to ask whether
an international coalition worth its salt can be successful
without the U.S. at its helm.
We're waiting to see the outcome, hoping that the peo-
ple of Libya can be free and thrive without the threat of an
insane dictator's ire looming over them. However, should
a U.S. soldier's boot touch Libyan soil, our president will
have not only his own country but also the world to an-
swer to. He's drawn a line in the sand, and he needs to
stick to it.

Opinions


Column

Critical analysis of
Nearly everyone agrees that critical thinking is a
skill essential for children to develop as early as
possible.
Throughout life, whether they are reading about his-
torical events, watching the news, talking with friends or
solving complex homework problems, they will be forced
to think critically about issues that confront them. Thus, it
makes sense, and is good public policy, for public schools
to expose children to a variety of appropriate issues and
allow them to critically examine these issues.
This is exactly what the Florida Senate has proposed to
ensure in a recent bill, which would require critical analy-
sis of Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution
content, as well as of the corrupt ideologies that led to the
Holocaust; the contributions of women, African Ameri-
cans, and Hispanic Americans to our history and culture;
and other important concepts and ideas.
No one takes issue with these provisions of the
bill, and most .- ,i.- - ll1, agree that critical analysis
of these subjects is a laudable educational objective.
Yet, Democratic legislators, the American Civil Liber-
ties Union and others still seek to sink the bill. Why?
It is because SB 1854, as the legislation is known, also seeks
to ensure a "thorough presentation and critical analysis of
the scientific theory of evolution." This sounds like a good
idea, right? Apparently not.
Evidently, it is not OK to critically examine evolution.
The ACLU has charged that this bill is a thinly veiled
attempt by Sen. Stephen Wise, sponsor of the legislation,
to introduce religion into science classrooms. OK. Even if
it is, how does this change anything? Even if the sponsor
of the bill does have ulterior motives in introducing it, the
legislation's language does not substitute Bible class for

Zack Smith the ideas and ideologies that these
letters@alligator org opponents favor?
Taking arguments advanced by
opponents such as Howard Simon, executive director of
the Florida ACLU, to their logical extremes, discoveries
by great scientists - Isaac Newton, Robert Boyle, Michael
Faraday, Lord Kelvin and Gregor Mendel, just to name a
few - all would be suspect because they, in some way, co-
mingled their scientific and religious beliefs. Even Albert
Einstein, who disavowed belief in a personal god, could
have his work called into question because he acknowl-
edged a belief that his god created the "immutable laws
of nature." Surely, opponents of the bill would not seek
to stifle the critical thinking of Einstein, yet this is exactly
what they seek to do to Florida's school children.
The U.S. Supreme Court has acknowledged that "teach-
ing a variety of scientific theories about the origins of hu-
mankind to school children might be validly done with
the clear secular intent of enhancing the effectiveness of
science instruction."
Although the sponsor of this bill probably favors cre-
ationism over evolution, it seems clear he is aware of Su-
preme Court precedent in this area and crafted the bill
to pass Constitutional muster and encourage students to
think critically in a wide array of areas.

Letters to the Editor
Rowdy Reptile questions ticket pricing
While the Florida ticketing office may find it
surprising that their 75 student tickets allotted for
the UCSB and UCLA games didn't sell out, I'm cer-
tainly not. Expecting students to pay $154 up front
to watch the Gauchos and Bruins is asinine.
With tuition hikes and scholarship cuts every
year, finding 75 students willing to shell out that
much money is going to be harder to do than find-
ing a 2011 FSU graduate a job. Watching this bas-
ketball team "rise up" over the past four years, I'm
really :'-,j :i11._.- by the ticketing office's discourage-
ment of having that "sixth man" on the court via
students in attendance.
I'm not saying that boosters and alumni don't
cheer, but no one can argue that students don't do it
better. Whether it takes adding $5 to booster ticket
prices to subsidize student tickets or just making
the University Athletic Association take a hit, the
responsibility for any lack of Gator spirit in later
rounds of the NCAA tournament is going to rest
solely on the UAA's shoulders.
Go Gators.

Mardi Gras letter dull, condescending
First off, I must say I -'. -l -11,i don't read Tiffany
Miles' letters because, overall, I find their content to
be dull and presented in a condescending manner.
My real complaint is with the letter in Wednes-
day's edition entitled "Mardi Gras article embar-
rassing, trashy."
I was embarrassed to even have a letter like this
in my school newspaper.
It only glorifies prudence and virtue (probably
of a good nature as well), bookwormism and other-
wise total dullness.
By focusing on nothing but the negative aspects
of partying - not saying there are any negative
ones - the letter was the epitome of the smart-ass
college kid who might have passed some tests but
is not aware enough of her surroundings to know
that nobody plays "wine-pong."
Seriously.
The letter was trash, and it only made the al-
ready crappy editorial section even trashier. I will
spread only negative things about Tiffany Miles un-
til she becomes fun.

Guest column

Gator Nation stands


together for Japan
here are moments in time when I am immensely proud to be
a Florida Gator. Thursday was one of them. No, it wasn't due
to many students' impressive performances on St. Patty's Day.
It wasn't even due to our dominance in :' :- .rl: , II It was due to
the sight I witnessed at the candlelight vigil in commemoration of
the disaster in Japan. Hundreds of students sat huddled in the Re-
itz Union Amphitheatre. There were students from all communities
Ben MeyerS and cliques. Unity prevailed as all the stu-
dents joined in praying for those affected by
Speaking Out the tragedy and committing to doing all they
can to help. We heard emotional tales of those
here who know individuals who lost their homes and even their
lives. Though the words were in Japanese, the emotion transcended
language and generated compassion from all in attendance.
I am writing today not only to report on an event that made me
indescribably proud of The Gator Nation but also to urge all reading
to do what they can to aid the victims of the disaster. I understand
times are tough, but please consider donating any spare change you
may have. And please consider donating any of your spare time to-
ward helping Hope for Japan as they organize our UF community in
response to the disaster.
Those of us who were here when disaster struck Haiti know what
we as a university community are capable of.
..1 despite the horror and sadness it brings, truly brings out
the best in many people. Let's do it again, Gators.

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL

Walker leads Florida past UCLA, into Sweet 16
By GREG LUCA
Alligator Staff Writer
gluca@alligator org

TAMPA - After a year filled with clutch shots in big mo-
ments, there was little surprise when the Gators turned to Erv-
ing Walker with their season on the line.
Behind the junior guard's game-high 21 points, including 10
over the final four minutes, No. 2-seed Florida advanced to the
Sweet 16 with a 73-65 wmin over seventh-seeded UCLA (23-11)
on Saturday min the St. Pete Times Forum. The Gators (28-7) will
face third-seeded BYU on Thursday in New Orleans after the
Cougars scored an 89-67 wmin over Gonzaga on Saturday.
"Erv is fearless," senior forward Chandler Parsons said.
"Any time the guy shoots the ball, I think it's going in. He's got
a knack for hitting big shots."
With 3:58 remaining and the Gators up by three, the 5-foot-8
Walker drove the lane and hit an acrobatic jumper over 6-foot-
10 UCLA center Joshua Smith.
Two minutes later, Walker corralled an inbounds pass near
midcourt, gathered himself and drilled a three, stretching UF's
lead to four.
"He lives for moments when the games are tight," sopho-
more guard Kenny Boynton said. "He has a big heart and he's
not scared to take the big shot."
Walker's work wasn't done there.
With Florida ahead by four and less than 40 seconds to play,

UF GYMNASTICS

Gators fall short of repeat title at SEC Championship


By ALLISON BANKO
Alligator Writer

The Gators rolled up to the Bir-
mingham Jefferson Civic Center
prepared to defend their confer-
ence title, but after small mistakes,
mild sicknesses and pestering in-
juries, they fell short.
No. 1 Florida (17-2, 5-1 South-
eastern Conference) was edged
out of the SEC Championship by
Alabama (17-1, 5-1) on Saturday,
as the Crimson Tide scored a
197.225 to UF's 196.975.
The Gators kicked off the meet
with a phenomenal warm-up and


aggressive performances on bars,
but the competition went south
when the team entered its beam
and floor routines.
"It just seemed like the athletes
got really tight and had some un-
characteristic wobbles that we
normally don't have," said coach
Rhonda Faehn, who was named
SEC Coach of the Year in a post-
meet ceremony.
Freshman Mackenzie Caquatto,
a usual beam star, had to sit out af-
ter rolling an ankle in practice last
week. Sophomore Ashanee Dick-
erson, who felt under the weather
throughout the competition, post-


ed a 9.625.
"Poor Nay," Faehn said. "Com-
ing off the bus, she had flu-like
symptoms. She felt like she was go-
ing to throw up pretty much most
of the night."
Dickerson
stuck it out and
competed in all
four events, join-
ing freshman
Alaina John-
Johnson son in the all-
around.
Although the beam lineup was
missing Caquatto, whom Faehn
said is the team's top performer in


the event, senior Alicia Goodwin
stepped up to round out the squad
and scored a 9.9 - the best of her
college career.
However, the Gators failed
to maintain their momentum on
floor exercise, mainly due to land-
ing mistakes on tumbling passes.
Johnson and senior Maranda
Smith came through for the Gators
with their performances, each
earning a 9.9.
Johnson's combined scores
earned her the second place in the
all-around, and she earned SEC
Freshman of the Year honors fol-
lowing the competition.


The freshman said she loved
every minute of the meet, but in
the end, the little flaws were too
much for the Gators to overcome.
"Everything counts," she said.
"We just weren't quite as aggres-
sive as we should've been. Even
though we got second, that just
makes us want to work harder in
the gym and focus on every detail
and every thing up for nationals."
With a week off before the
NCAA Regional Championships,
Faehn said she is focused on get-
ting her athletes back in the gym
and getting their bodies healthy
again.


Florida women finish disappointing seventh at NCAA meet


* UF SCORED 226 POINTS, 198
BEHIND FIRST-PLACE CALIFORNIA.

By MELISSA PENDER
Alligator Writer

Despite their best efforts, the Gators
were unable to recapture last year's glory.
The No. 7 Florida women's team took
seventh in this year's NCAA swimming
and diving championships with 226 points,
falling six points behind sixth-place Texas.
No. 2 California took home the title, rack-
ing up 424 points.
Freshman Elizabeth Beisel led UF, final-
ing in three events over the three-day com-
petition. She took second in the 400-yard
individual medley, third in the 200 back-


stroke and eighth in the 500 freestyle, earn-
ing five All-America accolades.
Juniors Sarah Bateman, Teresa Crippen
and Shara Stafford made the "A" finals in
individual events as well, and senior diver
Monica Dodson placed fifth in the 3-meter
springboard competition.
"I'm so excited for Monica," diving
coach Donnie Craine said. "She's never
made the finals on any of the springboard
events. She came in after winning the SEC
Championships in the 3-meter and made
[finaling] her goal."
The Gators swam in the finals of two
relay events, which they have struggled
in all year due to health issues and lineup
changes.
Bateman, Beisel, Stafford and fresh-
man Hilda Luthersdottir, who set a school


record in the 100 breaststroke, took sixth
place in the 400 medley relay. A fifth-place
finish in the 800 free relay by the team of
Beisel, Crippen, Stafford and sophomore
Jamie Bohunicky .- - t-Ill-io the Gators to
seventh place at the end of the second day.
Bohunicky said she hopes this week-
S end's disappointment
will help the team con-
tinue to improve and
Swim ing eventually retake the title
Swimming next season.
"Obviously this isn't
where we wanted to finish, but I'm still
proud of the Gator spirit we showed in con-
tinuing to fight and persevere," she said. "I
couldn't be more proud of this team, and I
know that this experience will help us next
year.


The swimmers' performances earned 38
All-America honors overall. Florida head
coach Gregg Troy said he blames the coach-
es, not the swimmers, for UF falling short.
"I'm extremely proud of how the team
competed," Troy said. "We fought hard
all weekend long. As a staff, we probably
didn't do as good of a job as getting them
prepared as we would have liked, but it
was tremendous effort on their part."
He said the health issues the team has
faced this year, including Stafford's ab-
sence during the end of the season, held
them back, but the team kept a positive at-
titude during the championships.
"They showed a lot of character and
mental toughness in the adversity they
overcame not only this week, but the entire
season," he said.

Boynton leaves game with ankle sprain, hopes to be ready for BYU

were all limited by foul trouble -.1II. 1' i in-
tense, physical battles with Smith.
FE _, 1:...1; is ready to come and step up,"
Young said. "On any given night, somebody
could have a great game."
Seven different Gators scored at least sev-
en points, with a total of 15 coming from UF's
bench.


With his frontcourt teammates in foul trou-
ble, senior Alex Tyus stepped up and notched
eight points and a game-high 13 rebounds in a
season-high 33 minutes, providing the prow-
ess on the glass he predicted UF would need.
"I've never met a guy who watches bas-
ketball and knows : :-I .- rl: :I I like Alex Tyus,"
Macklin said. "He actually said before the
game, 'This is one of those games I have to re-
bound. I have to rebound and go to the glass
relentlessly.' And that's what he did."
Saturday's game, which featured 11 ties


and 10 lead changes, was hotly contested
from start to finish, as neither team led by
more than five for the first
34 minutes, something the
Gators have grown accus-
tomed to in a season full of
close calls.
"I'm kind of used to
that feeling with, 'Oh no,
we might lose,'" Young
Boynton said. "I'm getting used to
that feeling because I know


we're going to come through in the end."

INJURY UPDATE: Boynton's injury has been di-
agnosed as a mild left ankle sprain, the sopho-
more guard said.
He briefly returned to action, but the pain
severely limited him and coach Billy Donovan
decided to keep him on the bench.
"I'm going to try to do therapy all day this
week and be back by Thursday," Boynton
said.


Gators' three-point defense key vs. Eagles


W-HOOPS, from page 13

Jordan Jones has 69 makes while
shooting better than 38 percent.
She made three of four against
UMBC while leading all scorers


with 18 points and said afterward
she thrives in the tournament set-
ting.
"This time of the year, it's win or
go home," Jones said. "There's defti-
nitely a different mindset. I enjoy
this. I enjoy the pressure of just com-


Guard Jordan Jones has made 55.2 percent of her threes the last five

ing out here and knowing we have
to win to advance."
Jones has made a habit of step-
ping up late in the year, as she holds
the Postseason WNIT record for
three-pointers made in a game with
nine against North Carolina A&T on
March 21, 2008.
But that was a home game as a
member of South Carolina, a much
different atmosphere than Jones and
Florida will face when they enter
Alico Arena.
On the strength of their outside
shooting, the Eagles have won 42
straight at home and boast a better
home winning percentage than Ten-
nessee since moving to Division I
four years ago.
"Nationally, their record speaks
for itself," Butler said. "They are a
tough matchup for us, but we're ex-
cited to still be playing."
She said the Gators didn't com-
municate well in Friday's win over
UMBC, something that will be criti-
cal in limiting long-distance oppor-
tunities against FGCU.
Butler also added that the usual
strategies for stopping three-point
sharp-shooters might not apply
against the Eagles.
"The easy answer about how to
defend the three is play tough man
defense and really pressure the ball,
but they are too good to do just
that," Butler said. "There's not just
one answer about how to stop their

Bullpen strikes out

(16-4, 0-3 SEC) and earning his first collegiate victory.
Entering Sunday, the sophomore hibL:]ll,-' had tossed
just 3.2 innings all season, but he said afterward his arm felt
great despite throwing more pitches than he had since high
school.
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan has preached all year about his
confidence in Maddox as a valuable bullpen arm and said, "I
know he hasn't thrown a whole lot, but we weren't going to
bring him out of the game unless we got into trouble."
Florida displayed its deep bullpen all series against LSU,
as five pitchers combined for 10.1 innings, 11 strikeouts, one
walk and just one earned run.
In Friday's 5-4 win, Anthony DeSclafani escaped a jam in
the bottom of the ninth and earned his third save of the sea-
son. After Hudson Randall pitched 6.2 shutout innings on
Saturday, lefty Nick Maronde closed the game, striking out
the final four hitters in UF's 1-0 win.
"Our bullpen was outstanding,"
O'Sullivan said. "It's a team sport. You never
know who is going to be the hero, and today
Baseball was Jeff Moyer coming off the bench, and
Maddox coming out of the bullpen. You just
never know, but it was a great team effort."
Down 3-0 in the fourth, the Gators rallied for five runs,
including three with two outs. The inning was highlighted
by Moyer's two-out pinch-hit single up the middle, plating
two and giving Florida the lead.
"That was a clutch at-bat there," O'Sullivan said. "Those
two out hits win ball games."
Moyer, who was 3 for 3 with three RBIs, added an insur-
ance run in the ninth with a towering shot into the right-field
bleachers.
"Sully called my number," Moyer said. "It's great that he
has trust in me.
"I haven't seen a team like this before," the junior transfer
added. "It could be anyone on any given night. Sully and
[assistant coach] Brad [Weitzel] do a great job plugging guys
in where they can thrive and help the team."

Bruns ties career high, lifts Florida over Syracuse


* THE WIN WAS UF'S SEC-
OND OVER A TOP-15 TEAM.

By JOHN BOOTHE
Alligator Writer

Syracuse constantly shadowed
Florida's top scoring threat, chasing
Kitty Cullen all over the field Satur-
day.
But as the No. 11 Orange (2-4)
soon found out, there's more than
one piece to No. 10 UF's offense.
Behind a career-high-tying six
goals from sophomore Ashley
Bruns, the Gators (8-1) scored their
second win of the season over a top-
15 opponent, beating Syracuse 16-11


at Dizney Stadium.
"You can't ask for anything more
from Ashley," UF coach Amanda
O'Leary said. "She was dominant
on the offensive and also on the ride
as well. Not really much more to
say than she was the driving force
today."
In the first half, Cullen was re-
peatedly face-guarded by Orange
defenders, effectively taking her out
of the game. No. 9 Georgetown tried
a similar tactic on March 9, but Cul-
len was still able to net four goals.
Syracuse's defense found suc-
cess with the strategy, as Orange de-
fender Becca Block held Cullen, the
nation's leading scorer, without a
shot attempt in the first 30 minutes.


"It wasn't a surprise. Kitty's
been playing very well this season,
so I think we knew it was going to
come," Bruns said. "We've been
working on ways to get her open,
setting picks and screens, and it
ended up working really well to-
day."
With one option out of the
S Gators' arsenal,
the offense cen-
tered around
Bruns, who tied a
Lacrosse school record with
her six goals, and
fellow midfielder Brittany Dashiell.
The pair combined for five first-half
goals to give their team a 6-5 lead at
the break.


Dashiell was coming off a five-
goal game against Colgate and
continued her hot streak with three
more. The sophomore was also criti-
cal in helping Florida win the pos-
session battle, taking all the team's
faceoffs and finishing tied with a
game-high four draw controls.
"If you possess the ball, the other
team can't score," O'Leary said.
"For us to get those 18 draws was
critical, because we needed posses-
sion of the ball. ... If you give them
an inch, the ball's going in the back
of the net unfortunately."
The Gators owned four of the
first five possessions in the second
half due to Dashiell's work on fa-
ceoffs, :11.. - i'"i the offense to score


three goals in two minutes.
As the Orange's defense scram-
bled to get set after Florida won
control, the Gators finally worked
the ball into Cullen, who notched
three second-half goals.
"All seven of our attackers can
come in and score," Dashiell said.
"Taking out one player isn't going
to make that big of a difference, so
we just used her and used that face-
guard to our advantage."
With Cullen just starting to get
involved, Bruns continued her
strong play well into the second
half. The midfielder had a hand in
three straight goals for the Gators,
scoring two and dishing out an as-
sist on another.

Rogers dominates Rebels as Gators earn series sweep


By STEPHEN SHEEHAN
Alligator Writer

Florida continued its conference domi-
nance this weekend.
For the third time this month, the No. 2
Gators (30-1, 7-0 Southeastern Conference)
swept an SEC opponent, and for the fifth
consecutive game, freshman Hannah Rogers
started and shut down a team from Missis-
sippi.
After earning two wins against Missis-
sippi State on Wednesday and two more
against Ole Miss Friday and Saturday, the
young righty picked up her 16th victory as
the Gators took advantage of the Rebels' se-


vere control issues to win 11-3.
Rogers allowed three unearned runs on
two hits in five innings, struck out four bat-
ters and lowered her ERA to a team-leading
0.43.
Rogers has had to shoulder the load re-
cently with Stephanie Brombacher sidelined
with arm pain.
Although there is no timetable for Brom-
bacher's return, Rogers has proven more than
capable of being the team's top pitcher.
"We haven't had just one kid get the ball in
five straight games in a long time," UF coach
Tim Walton said. "Her strength and depend-
ability warranted her going out there."
While some would think the high num-


ber of starts could result in fatigue, the actual
workload was manageable.
Over the past five days, Rogers threw 220
pitches over 23 innings. By comparison, three
Rebels pitchers combined
for 177 pitches Sunday.
Although the Gators
didn't put Sunday's game
out of reach until the final
inning, they drew 15 walks,
had 10 hits and outscored
the Rebels 37-6 this week-
Walton end.
Down 3-2 after four in-
nings, UF scored nine runs during the final
three to seal the victory.


"A lot of times people think drawing a lot
of walks makes it easier to hit," Walton said.
"But sometimes it's the opposite. We strug-
gled the first three innings, but then we got
some big hits in key situations."
The Gators' patience resulted in two bas-
es-loaded walks in the fifth to give them the
lead.
Right fielder Kelsey Horton, who had
three RBIs, added another run with her sixth-
inning single before UF exploded for six more
in the final frame.
The scoring was led by two of the Gators'
most consistent hitters, seniors Kelsey
Bruder and Megan Bush, who each drove
in two runs on the day.

His shirt and neck were stained with his own blood. This was one of the darkest scenes in Shakespeare’s play “Macbeth,” which UF students performed for audiences seated on blankets and foldout chairs on the Plaza of the Americas over the weekend. The students were members of Shakespeare in the Park, a UF club that reenacts the noted playwright’s work with a per sonal twist. Their performance of “Macbeth” called for the use of leather jackets, hubcaps, hammers, baseball bats and a fake severed head. The club, which includes students from a variety of majors, performs one Shakespearean play each year. While in the past they have done comedies, such as “Much Ado About Nothing,” the students chose the darker “Macbeth” to challenge themselves, said Noah Camenker, the club’s secretary. “We want to be a complete Shakespeare organization,” said Camenker, who acts as one of Macbeth’s handpicked hit men in the performance. “We want to branch out.” The play revolves around a Scottish general, Macbeth, who claws his way to the throne through murder and deceit with the help of his wife.

About 100 people attended Saturday night’s performance, which Bethany Koch, the club’s president, described as its best yet. Casting for “Macbeth” took place in the middle of the fall semester, she said. The students practiced twice a week for the remainder of the term. In the spring, they practiced three times a week to prepare. Since its formation in 2006, Shakespeare in the Park has grown every year, Camenker said. “Every year we get a little bigger, a little better organized,” he said. “I want to come back in 10 years and see a Shakespeare in the Park show.” Pamela Cayemitte, a UF senior who attended the play, said it picked up the pace in the second half. She was impressed with the students’ commitment to the play despite other responsibilities they had.

At one point, Alexander told the participants that the shoulder of the person next to them would have a heavenly scent. UF junior Lee Penn couldn’t believe he allowed himself to get so physically close to others. “I don’t normally touch other people, yet I was getting all over some girl’s shoulder,” Penn said. To be hypnotized, Penn said he had to put himself in a state of mind where he truly believed what Alexander was telling him. “It’s like when you watch a movie and you have to suspend your disbelief to get into it,” Penn said. “I had to think that it was real.” Although the students did things they usually wouldn’t do, Alexander said hypnosis can occur only by one’s own will. “It’s a mental tool that we all have and most people don’t understand,” Alexander said. “If you have the attitude that you can’t be hypnotized, it’ll never happen.” Having hypnotized about 20,000 people throughout his career, Alexander said he uses hypnotism not only to entertain but also to teach people how they can improve their lives. Alexander has used clinical hypnosis to help people quit smoking, lose weight and relieve stress and anxiety. At the end of his act, Alexander told participants they would have the ability to set goals for themselves from that day forward. Since the hypnotism, Read said she feels more driven to set and achieve goals. “I don’t know if it’s me psyching myself out because I followed what he said to do while I was hypnotized,” Read said, “but I do believe it.”Hypnotist puts students in trance, helps set goals Student Lif e

Why else would he stress his understanding of the risks of any military action? Why would he emphasize and repeat his intentions of keeping U.S. troops off Libyan soil? Obama is seeing what we’re seeing — a frighteningly familiar scenario of international forces intervening in a country on the brink, complete with the undertones of terrorism and the memorable words of a crazy dictator. We’ve seen this movie before, and we know how it goes. Or do we? We’ll be quick to point out that, according to our leaders, this military action isn’t being led by the United States. Instead, it seems that the French, of all people, have taken charge. Also, there is more of a focus on the international After all, the steps everyone is taking are in response to by Libya’s own neighbors in the Arab League. Mere hours after the beginning of the military action, however, these neighbors began objecting to the use of force in the country. Bombings that kill civilians, they say, shouldn’t be part of an operation meant to protect people from their own government. Indeed, the international community may be shooting and his ilk, alarmed by the idea that someone would attack his fellow countrymen from the air. He has a reputation for sponsoring terrorist attacks, as John O. Brennan, Obama’s senior adviser on counterterrorism, has reminded us. Although we’re too young to remember it, our par ents have told us about the fate of Pan Am Flight 103. The threat is real. In the best-case scenario, a democracy will take root where politicians listen to the people, stay free of corruption and are friendly to the U.S. and our allies. Our own government doesn’t even accomplish two of those three on a regular basis. And the worst case? We’ll get someone who has the mental stability of the old leader, a background in terror ism and the evidence to turn his people off to the U.S. and the UN if we continue to count civilians among the casualties of the military action. This assumes we are successevery last man, woman and child in Libya before he gave ing the job sounds entirely too much like Iraq. It makes us worry. It also harkens back to the questions we asked years ago: Should we get involved in another country’s internal problems — and when are we harming more than we are helping? In addition, we’re now left to ask whether an international coalition worth its salt can be successful without the U.S. at its helm. We’re waiting to see the outcome, hoping that the people of Libya can be free and thrive without the threat of an insane dictator’s ire looming over them. However, should a U.S. soldier’s boot touch Libyan soil, our president will have not only his own country but also the world to answer to. He’s drawn a line in the sand, and he needs to stick to it.Critical analysis of evolution neededNearly everyone agrees that critical thinking is a skill essential for children to develop as early as possible. Throughout life, whether they are reading about historical events, watching the news, talking with friends or solving complex homework problems, they will be forced to think critically about issues that confront them. Thus, it makes sense, and is good public policy, for public schools to expose children to a variety of appropriate issues and allow them to critically examine these issues. This is exactly what the Florida Senate has proposed to ensure in a recent bill, which would require critical analysis of Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution content, as well as of the corrupt ideologies that led to the Holocaust; the contributions of women, African Americans, and Hispanic Americans to our history and culture; and other important concepts and ideas. No one takes issue with these provisions of the bill, and most generally agree that critical analysis of these subjects is a laudable educational objective. Yet, Democratic legislators, the American Civil Liber ties Union and others still seek to sink the bill. Why? It is because SB 1854, as the legislation is known, also seeks to ensure a “thorough presentation and critical analysis of idea, right? Apparently not. Evidently, it is not OK to critically examine evolution. The ACLU has charged that this bill is a thinly veiled attempt by Sen. Stephen Wise, sponsor of the legislation, to introduce religion into science classrooms. OK. Even if it is, how does this change anything? Even if the sponsor of the bill does have ulterior motives in introducing it, the legislation’s language does not substitute Bible class for biology; it simply encourages critical thinking by students. Do opponents of the bill want children to check their critical thinking caps at the classroom door, or do they really want children to favor the ideas and ideologies that these opponents favor? Taking arguments advanced by opponents such as Howard Simon, executive director of the Florida ACLU, to their logical extremes, discoveries by great scientists — Isaac Newton, Robert Boyle, Michael Faraday, Lord Kelvin and Gregor Mendel, just to name a few — all would be suspect because they, in some way, coEinstein, who disavowed belief in a personal god, could have his work called into question because he acknowledged a belief that his god created the “immutable laws what they seek to do to Florida’s school children. The U.S. Supreme Court has acknowledged that “teachmankind to school children might be validly done with the clear secular intent of enhancing the effectiveness of Although the sponsor of this bill probably favors creationism over evolution, it seems clear he is aware of Supreme Court precedent in this area and crafted the bill to pass Constitutional muster and encourage students to think critically in a wide array of areas.

No, it wasn’t due to many students’ impressive performances on St. Patty’s Day. It wasn’t even due to our dominance in basketball. It was due to the sight I witnessed at the candlelight vigil in commemoration of the disaster in Japan. Hundreds of students sat huddled in the Reitz Union Amphitheatre. There were students from all communities and cliques. Unity prevailed as all the students joined in praying for those affected by the tragedy and committing to doing all they can to help. We heard emotional tales of those here who know individuals who lost their homes and even their lives. Though the words were in Japanese, the emotion transcended language and generated compassion from all in attendance. I am writing today not only to report on an event that made me indescribably proud of The Gator Nation but also to urge all reading to do what they can to aid the victims of the disaster. I understand times are tough, but please consider donating any spare change you may have. And please consider donating any of your spare time toward helping Hope for Japan as they organize our UF community in response to the disaster. Those of us who were here when disaster struck Haiti know what we as a university community are capable of. Tragedy, despite the horror and sadness it brings, truly brings out the best in many people. Let’s do it again, Gators. Ben Meyers, Student Body President-ElectGator Nation stands together for JapanGuest columnBen MeyersSpeaking Out Rowdy Reptile questions ticket pricing surprising that their 75 student tickets allotted for the UCSB and UCLA games didn’t sell out, I’m cer tainly not. Expecting students to pay $154 up front to watch the Gauchos and Bruins is asinine. With tuition hikes and scholarship cuts every ing a 2011 FSU graduate a job. Watching this basketball team “rise up” over the past four years, I’m ment of having that “sixth man” on the court via students in attendance. I’m not saying that boosters and alumni don’t cheer, but no one can argue that students don’t do it better. Whether it takes adding $5 to booster ticket prices to subsidize student tickets or just making the University Athletic Association take a hit, the responsibility for any lack of Gator spirit in later rounds of the NCAA tournament is going to rest solely on the UAA’s shoulders. Go Gators. Jordan Ball UF studentMardi Gras letter dull, condescendingFirst off, I must say I generally don’t read Tiffany be dull and presented in a condescending manner. My real complaint is with the letter in Wednesday’s edition entitled “Mardi Gras article embar rassing, trashy.” I was embarrassed to even have a letter like this in my school newspaper. of a good nature as well), bookwormism and other wise total dullness. By focusing on nothing but the negative aspects of partying — not saying there are any negative ones — the letter was the epitome of the smart-ass college kid who might have passed some tests but is not aware enough of her surroundings to know that nobody plays “wine-pong.” Seriously. The letter was trash, and it only made the already crappy editorial section even trashier. I will spread only negative things about Tiffany Miles until she becomes fun.

14, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2011 UF SCORED 226 POINTS, 198 BEHIND FIRST-PLACE CALIFORNIA.By MELISSA PENDER Alligator Writer Despite their best efforts, the Gators were unable to recapture last year’s glory. The No. 7 Florida women’s team took seventh in this year’s NCAA swimming and diving championships with 226 points, falling six points behind sixth-place Texas. No. 2 California took home the title, racking up 424 points. ing in three events over the three-day competition.

She came in after winning the SEC relay events, which they have struggled in all year due to health issues and lineup changes. Bateman, Beisel, Stafford and freshman Hilda Luthersdottir, who set a school record in the 100 breaststroke, took sixth Beisel, Crippen, Stafford and sophomore Jamie Bohunicky propelling the Gators to seventh place at the end of the second day. Bohunicky said she hopes this weekend’s disappointment will help the team continue to improve and eventually retake the title next season. “Obviously this isn’t proud of the Gator spirit we showed in concouldn’t be more proud of this team, and I know that this experience will help us next year.” All-America honors overall. Florida head coach Gregg Troy said he blames the coaches, not the swimmers, for UF falling short. “I’m extremely proud of how the team competed,” Troy said. “We fought hard all weekend long. As a staff, we probably didn’t do as good of a job as getting them prepared as we would have liked, but it was tremendous effort on their part.” He said the health issues the team has faced this year, including Stafford’s absence during the end of the season, held them back, but the team kept a positive attitude during the championships. “They showed a lot of character and mental toughness in the adversity they overcame not only this week, but the entire season,” he said.UF GYMNASTICSBy ALLISON BANKOAlligator Writer The Gators rolled up to the Bir mingham Jefferson Civic Center prepared to defend their confer ence title, but after small mistakes, mild sicknesses and pestering injuries, they fell short. No. 1 Florida (17-2, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) was edged out of the SEC Championship by Alabama (17-1, 5-1) on Saturday, as the Crimson Tide scored a 197.225 to UF’s 196.975. The Gators kicked off the meet with a phenomenal warm-up and aggressive performances on bars, but the competition went south when the team entered its beam “It just seemed like the athletes got really tight and had some uncharacteristic wobbles that we normally don’t have,” said coach Rhonda Faehn, who was named SEC Coach of the Year in a postmeet ceremony. Freshman Mackenzie Caquatto, a usual beam star, had to sit out after rolling an ankle in practice last week. Sophomore Ashane Dickerson, who felt under the weather throughout the competition, posted a 9.625. “Poor Nay,” Faehn said. “Comsymptoms. She felt like she was going to throw up pretty much most of the night.” Dickerson stuck it out and competed in all four events, joining freshman Alaina Johnson in the allaround. Although the beam lineup was missing Caquatto, whom Faehn said is the team’s top performer in the event, senior Alicia Goodwin stepped up to round out the squad and scored a 9.9 — the best of her college career. However, the Gators failed to maintain their momentum on ing mistakes on tumbling passes. Johnson and senior Maranda Smith came through for the Gators with their performances, each earning a 9.9. Johnson’s combined scores earned her the second place in the all-around, and she earned SEC Freshman of the Year honors following the competition. The freshman said she loved every minute of the meet, but in much for the Gators to overcome. “Everything counts,” she said. “We just weren’t quite as aggressive as we should’ve been. Even though we got second, that just makes us want to work harder in the gym and focus on every detail and every thing up for nationals.” With a week off before the NCAA Regional Championships, Faehn said she is focused on getting her athletes back in the gym and getting their bodies healthy again.Johnson

Jordan Jones has 69 makes while shooting better than 38 percent. She made three of four against UMBC while leading all scorers with 18 points and said afterward she thrives in the tournament setting. “This time of the year, it’s win or nitely a different mindset. I enjoy this. I enjoy the pressure of just coming out here and knowing we have to win to advance.” Jones has made a habit of stepping up late in the year, as she holds the Postseason WNIT record for three-pointers made in a game with nine against North Carolina A&T on March 21, 2008. But that was a home game as a member of South Carolina, a much different atmosphere than Jones and Florida will face when they enter Alico Arena. On the strength of their outside shooting, the Eagles have won 42 straight at home and boast a better home winning percentage than Tennessee since moving to Division I four years ago. “Nationally, their record speaks for itself,” Butler said. “They are a tough matchup for us, but we’re excited to still be playing.” She said the Gators didn’t communicate well in Friday’s win over UMBC, something that will be critical in limiting long-distance oppor tunities against FGCU. Butler also added that the usual strategies for stopping three-point sharp-shooters might not apply against the Eagles. “The easy answer about how to defend the three is play tough man defense and really pressure the ball, but they are too good to do just that,” Butler said. “There’s not just one answer about how to stop their three-point success.” FGCU’s only victory over UF came at home to open the 2008-09 season. The Gators ended the Eagles’ season the year before with a second-round WNIT victory in the O’Connell Center, something Jones thinks will happen again tonight. “They hate the Gators,” Jones said. “I’m excited for the challenge and ready to get down there and advance in this tournament.” MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2011 ALLIGATOR, 15 Saj Guevara / Alligator Staff games, and UF will need that to continue to match FGCU tonight. Boynton leaves game with ankle sprain, hopes to be ready for BYUnon Macklin, Patric Young and Erik Murphy were all limited by foul trouble following intense, physical battles with Smith. “Everybody is ready to come and step up,” Young said. “On any given night, somebody could have a great game.” Seven different Gators scored at least seven points, with a total of 15 coming from UF’s bench. With his frontcourt teammates in foul trouble, senior Alex Tyus stepped up and notched eight points and a game-high 13 rebounds in a season-high 33 minutes, providing the prowess on the glass he predicted UF would need. “I’ve never met a guy who watches basketball and knows basketball like Alex Tyus,” Macklin said. “He actually said before the game, ‘This is one of those games I have to rebound. I have to rebound and go to the glass relentlessly.’ And that’s what he did.” Saturday’s game, which featured 11 ties and 10 lead changes, was hotly contested 34 minutes, something the Gators have grown accustomed to in a season full of close calls. “I’m kind of used to that feeling with, ‘Oh no, we might lose,’” Young said. “I’m getting used to that feeling because I know we’re going to come through in the end.” INJURY UPDATE: Boynton’s injury has been diagnosed as a mild left ankle sprain, the sophomore guard said. severely limited him and coach Billy Donovan decided to keep him on the bench. “I’m going to try to do therapy all day this week and be back by Thursday,” Boynton said.

16, ALLIGATOR MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2011 UF SOFTBALLBy STEPHEN SHEEHANAlligator Writer Florida continued its conference dominance this weekend. For the third time this month, the No. 2 Gators (30-1, 7-0 Southeastern Conference) consecutive game, freshman Hannah Rogers started and shut down a team from Mississippi. After earning two wins against Mississippi State on Wednesday and two more against Ole Miss Friday and Saturday, the young righty picked up her 16th victory as the Gators took advantage of the Rebels’ severe control issues to win 11-3. Rogers allowed three unearned runs on ters and lowered her ERA to a team-leading 0.43. Rogers has had to shoulder the load recently with Stephanie Brombacher sidelined with arm pain. Although there is no timetable for Brombacher’s return, Rogers has proven more than capable of being the team’s top pitcher. “We haven’t had just one kid get the ball in Tim Walton said. “Her strength and dependWhile some would think the high number of starts could result in fatigue, the actual workload was manageable. pitches over 23 innings.

MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2011 UF QUIDDITCH UF can't catch snitch, loses Swamp Cup By THOMAS NASSIFF Alligator Writer The scene at Kanapaha Park had all the symptoms of a typical Sunday afternoon. Children played in the fields as families munched on their picnic lunches and flew kites, taking in the warm, breezy day. But on one large field, there was something different. A crowd of people swarmed around a group of college students who ran around with pretend broomsticks between their legs, trying to throw a volleyball through a trio of makeshift hoops. "There were quite a few snags, but we managed to recover very quickly. On the whole, everyone seems to be pretty happy with how things turned out." Nick Murado president of the UF Quidditch club The first Quidditch Swamp Cup was held this weekend, featuring six Quidditch teams from the around the state. Hosted by the UF Quidditch team, the event was the first regional cup in the history of the International Quidditch Association, which was based on the sport made famous by J.K Rowling's Harry Potter novels. Nick Murado, the president of the UF Quidditch club, said the team played very well over the weekend but was plagued by a couple unfortunate events that prevented it from advancing to ..r the finals.

The Gators team went 1-2 in the first round of the playoffs, failing advance to the final series, which saw Miami beat Ringling for the Swamp Cup title. Murado said the tournament was run very efficiently, especially considering it was its first year. About 50 people watched the best-of-three final series on Sunday. "There were quite a few snags, but we managed to recover very quickly," Murado said. "On the whole, everyone seems to be pretty happy with how things turned out." Despite the UF team's disappointing showing, Hannah Pohlmann, a co-director of the Swamp Cup and a Beater for the UF team, said the group was looking forward to the future. "I'm happy with where we're at, and we had a wonderful tournament," Pohlmann said. "For the first regional cup ever, it all went really well. Next year we want to make things way bigger for the Swamp Cup." Shakespeare troupe puts on spring performance The group performed 'Macbeth' three times this weekend By MORGAN WATKINS Alligator Writer As the sun set over the Plaza of the Americas on Saturday night, three women with dirt-smudged faces, torn clothes and leaves in their tangled hair gathered around a tire. "Double, double toil and trouble; fire burn, and cauldron bubble," they said as smoke bubbled over the black rubber. A few minutes later, the three women backed away from the cauldron to make room for Macbeth. Bright white lights flashed behind Macbeth as a man crept forward like a zombie. It was Banquo, the man whose death Macbeth himself had ordered. His shirt and neck were stained with his own blood. This was one of the darkest scenes in Shakespeare's play "Macbeth," which UF students performed for audiences seated on blankets and foldout chairs on the Plaza of the Americas over the weekend. The students were members of Shakespeare in the Park, a UF club that reenacts the noted playwright's work with a personal twist. Their performance of "Macbeth" called for the use of On leather jackets, hubcaps, hamCampus mers, baseball bats and a fake severed head. The club, which includes students from a variety of majors, performs one Shakespearean play each year. While in the past they have done comedies, such as "Much Ado About Nothing," the students chose the darker "Macbeth" to challenge themselves, said Noah Camenker, the club's secretary. "We want to be a complete Shakespeare organization," said Camenker, who acts as one of Macbeth's handpicked hit men in the performance. "We want to branch out." The play revolves around a Scottish general, Macbeth, who claws his way to the throne through murder and deceit with the help of his wife.

MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 3 GatorNights celebrates 10 years UF PRESIDENT BERNIE MACHEN WAS ON HAND. By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer After 10 years and tons of free midnight breakfasts, GatorNights is still going strong. Florida's weekly late-night program celebrated its 10-year anniversary Friday in the Reitz Union with many of its usual festivities, plus a little added flair. This week's installment featured funnel cakes, candy apples and four birthday cakes. There were also carnival games, balloon animals, a screening of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" and guest appearances from Albert, Alberta and UF President Bernie Machen. "This program is one of the really positive things that's been done and shows what the university is and what it can be all about," Machen said. By MEREDITH RUTLAND Alligator Writer A pinecone-finding contest pulled Loyal Frisbie-Knudsen back to Gainesville. He said the contest, run by Satchel's Pizza, illustrates the relaxed atmosphere that makes Gainesville an enjoyable place to live. He said residents don't rush through life; they take time to enjoy it. "It was UF that brought me here and Gainesville that persuaded me to stay," Frisbie-Knudsen, 34, said. He is one of tens of thousands of residents who settled in Alachua County in the past 10 years. The 2010 census results show that the He emphasized the program's ability to provide students a fun, unifying experience without the use of alcohol. In the wake of recent tragedies and with the majority of UF students being under 21, Machen suggests GatorNights to them. "To them I offer GatorNights as a wonderful example of how you can have a wonderful time with your peers and friends without an alcohol component to that experience," Machen said. A pair of GatorNights alums, Jamal Sowell and Britney Swink, followed Machen at the podium and echoed his sentiments. Swink said her lime working with the program On helped her develop relationships with hundreds of Campus "regulars," people she became close with despite seeing them only on a weekly basis. Sowell said he never missed a Friday at GatorNights in his four years at UF, saying he wasn't a big fan of clubs, drinking and the whole downtown scene. "I've seen the world, but, regardless of what I did, I always remembered GatorNights," Sowell said. "GatorNights does have a place in my heart." county grew by 29,381 people since 2000, putting the latest population count at 247,336. "There's advantagesto having growth," county manager Randall Reid said. "We're known as a community A, of a very high quality of life." -While that growth is good, Reid said, it comes at a cost. More Reid people means more services to provide. He said the county government will take the population increase into consideration when planning next year's budget. Reid said that UF's growth has added to the county's quality of life. "Part of the reason people enjoy the university community, even for the retired community, is they provide the hope and the security that life goes on," he said. UF grew by 4,009 students from 2000 to 2010, putting last year's enrollment at 50,116 students, according to the Office of the University Registrar. Several minority populations in the county, including Asian, Hispanic and Pacific Islander, more than doubled in the last decade, and the rest grew more than 10 percent. "We are culturally more diverse, not only racially but culturally," Reid said. March 21, 1966: John Due becomes the first African-American to run for state Senate since the days of Reconstruction when he announces his candidacy for the District 6 seat in Gainesville. "The poor, the Negroes and the liberals of North Florida need representation," he said, "and they need a spokesman who will not call them out when it suits his interests to do so." He fails to win the seat. March 20, 1982: The Lady Gators take the top spot in the first ever women's swimming championship sponsored by the NCAA. Freshman Tracy Caulkins made a big splash, setting new collegiate records in the 100-yard butterfly, 200-yard individual medley, 400-yard individual medley, 200-yard butterfly and 100-yard individual medley. March 25, 1989: The Independent Florida Alligator operates without an editor-in-chief for the first time in its 17 years of autonomy after editor Derek Catron is suspended by the publisher for refusing to punish an employee. Tempers flare after the results of a dirty joke contest are published in the weekly entertainment section, "Applause." When Catron stands behind the paper's actions and refuses to reprimand the "Applause" editor, the publishing board suspends him for a week. -KAT BEIN Your campus news source UF Harvard professor speaks here on race in U.S. In 2009, Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., an African-American, was arrested by a white police officer while attempting to gain entry into his own home. The incident forced the nation to turn its attention to the case and consider issues of race and class in the United States. Harvard Law Professor Charles Ogletree served as Gates' attorney in the case, and the charges were later dropped. Ogletree's latest book, "The Presumption of Guilt: The Arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and Race, Class and Crime in America," details the Gates incident and uses it as a springboard to look at broader issues of race in America. Ogletree will give the UF Center for the Study of Race and Race Relations' 2011 Spring Lecture. His talk is titled, "Are We in A Post-Racial Society? Race in America Today." The free lecture will be given at noon Thursday at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, in Holland Hall, Room 180. Not only has Ogletree made a name for himself as a prominent legal theorist, criminal defense attorney and an influential champion of civil rights, he has written and lectured widely on issues of Charles Ogletree racial profiling, capital punishment, reparations and juvenile justice. During the confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Ogletree was a member of Professor Anita Hill's legal team. Ogletree has served as moderator on nationally televised forums and appeared as a guest commentator on multiple television shows including "Nightline," "The Today Show," "Larry King Live," "Meet the Press" and the joint View these stories and more at 2008 presidential election night coverage between "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report." He is a mentor to President Barack Obama, who was a student of Ogletree's at Harvard Law School. Ogletree is the Jesse Climenko professor of law and the director of the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice at Harvard. The University of Florida Levin College of Law Center for the Study of Race and Race Relations is committed to fostering communities of dialogue on race. The center creates and supports programs designed to enhance race-related curriculum development for faculty, staff and students in collegiate and professional schools. Of the five U.S. law schools with race centers, the CSRRR is uniquely focused on curriculum development.

4, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2011 Hypnotist puts students in trance, helps set goals 0 200 PEOPLE ATTENDED THE ACT IN JENNINGS HALL ON FRIDAY. By MARGEAUX NELSON Alligator Contributing Writer UF junior Courtney Read said almost all she can recall from her hypnosis was riding a motorcycle in a sandy, cactus-filled desert in Arizona. Hypnotist Rich Alexander put Read into a deep sleep on stage in front of about 200 students Saturday. Read said she couldn't believe how up close and personal she became with the other participants, falling asleep on their laps and collapsing onto the floor. Ten students were hypnotized during the Inter-Residence Hall Association's "Magical Mystery Tour" in Jennings Hall Saturday evening. They spoke imitation foreign languages, belly-danced, surfed and became Lady Gaga, when, in reality, their actions were merely figments of their imagination. When the hypnotist put the volunteers into a deep sleep, spectators moved to the edge of their seats, some flooding the front of the stage to get a better view. At one point, Alexander told the participants that the shoulder of the person next to them would have a heavenly scent. UF junior Lee Penn couldn't believe he allowed himself to get so physically close to others. "I don't normally touch other people, yet I was getting all over some girl's shoulder," Penn said. To be hypnotized, Penn said he had to put himself in a state of mind where he truly believed what Alexander was telling him. "It's like when you watch a movie and you have to suspend your disbelief to Student get into it," Penn said. "I had to think that it was real." Although the students did things they usually wouldn't do, Alexander said hypnosis can occur only by one's own will. "It's a mental tool that we all have and most people don't understand," Alexander said. "If you have the attitude that you can't be hypnotized, it'll never happen." Having hypnotized about 20,000 people throughout his career, Alexander said he uses hypnotism not only to entertain but also to teach people how they can improve their lives. Alexander has used clinical hypnosis to help people quit smoking, lose weight and relieve stress and anxiety. At the end of his act, Alexander told participants they would have the ability to set goals for themselves from that day forward. Since the hypnotism, Read said she feels more driven to set and achieve goals. "I don't know if it's me psyching myself out because I followed what he said to do while I was hypnotized," Read said, "but I do believe it." The group performed on the Plaza of the Americas SHAKESPEARE, from pageI on a warpath, eliminating all who get in his way until he himself is beheaded. About 100 people attended Saturday night's performance, which Bethany Koch, the club's president, described as its best yet. Casting for "Macbeth" took place in the middle of the fall semester, she said. The students practiced twice a week for the remainder of the term. In the spring, they practiced three times a week to prepare. Since its formation in 2006, Shakespeare in the Park has grown every year, Camenker said. "Every year we get a little bigger, a little better organized," he said. "I want to come back in 10 years and see a Shakespeare in the Park show." Pamela Cayemitte, a UF senior who attended the play, said it picked up the pace in the second half. She was impressed with the students' commitment to the play despite other responsibilities they had. After killing the men at his wife's insistence, Macbeth, played by UF sophomore Andrew Habibzadegan, stood before the crowd holding a handful of "bloody" butter knives. Turning to the audience, he raised his hands toward the sky. "But wherefore could I not pronounce 'Amen'?" he yelled. "I had most need of blessing, and 'Amen' stuck in my throat!"

MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 5 Harn to add Asian art wing The expansion will be finished in spring 2012 By DANIELLE ALVAREZ Alligator Contributing Writer The Harn Museum of Art will open an expanded 26,000-square-foot Asian art wing to the public in spring 2012. The new wing will hold 2,000 Asian art works from the permanent collection on rotating view. David A. Cofrin and his wife, Mary Ann, gave the museum a $10 million gift in support of the museum's new oriental expansion. Cofrin entrusted a $1 million endowment for the acquisition of Asian art and 312 art pieces valued at $4.1 million. The wing will feature two Asian-inspired gardens, which will be named after Cofrin. The galleries will be dedicated to art pieces from China, India, Japan, Korea, and South and Southeast Asia. This will make the museum the leading southeastern U.S. center for the study and preservation of Asian art influence. "The new wing will create immense opportunities for engagement and collaboration with students and professors across academic departments at the University of Florida," said Jason Steuber, the Cofrin curator of Asian art. "The Harn On Museum will expand its leadership role as a noted center for Asian art exhibitions, symposia, research and scholarly publications." Tami Wroath, director of marketing and public relations at the museum, said the Harn Museum will host a special "Museum Nights" event to celebrate the opening of the art wing. Wroath said that over the next four to six months the team will announce the official opening date. I Aundre Larrow/ Alligator A section of the Ham Museum of Art is under construction as a 26,000-square-foot Asian art wing is built for release to the public in spring 2012.

6, ALLIGATOR U MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2011 Line in the Sand U.S. actions in Libya cue Iraq comparisons he president must understand our fears about the situation in Libya. Why else would he stress his understanding of the risks of any military action? Why would he emphasize and repeat his intentions of keeping U.S. troops off Libyan soil? Obama is seeing what we're seeing -a frighteningly familiar scenario of international forces intervening in a country on the brink, complete with the undertones of terrorism and the memorable words of a crazy dictator. We've seen this movie before, and we know how it goes. Or do we? We'll be quick to point out that, according to our leaders, this military action isn't being led by the United States. Instead, it seems that the French, of all people, have taken charge. Also, there is more of a focus on the international outcry in the face of Gaddafi's treatment of his own people. After all, the steps everyone is taking are in response to the UN's imposition of a no-fly zone, which was requested by Libya's own neighbors in the Arab League. Mere hours after the beginning of the military action, however, these neighbors began objecting to the use of force in the country. Bombings that kill civilians, they say, shouldn't be part of an operation meant to protect people from their own government. Indeed, the international community may be shooting itself in the foot. We obviously are at odds with Gaddafi and his ilk, alarmed by the idea that someone would attack his fellow countrymen from the air. He has a reputation for sponsoring terrorist attacks, as John 0. Brennan, Obama's senior adviser on counterterrorism, has reminded us. Although we're too young to remember it, our parents have told us about the fate of Pan Am Flight 103. The threat is real. There is another problem in who will replace Gaddafi. In the best-case scenario, a democracy will take root where politicians listen to the people, stay free of corruption and are friendly to the U.S. and our allies. Our own government doesn't even accomplish two of those three on a regular basis. And the worst case? We'll get someone who has the mental stability of the old leader, a background in terrorism and the evidence to turn his people off to the U.S. and the UN if we continue to count civilians among the casualties of the military action. This assumes we are successful in ousting Gaddafi, the same man who swore to kill every last man, woman and child in Libya before he gave up power. The idea of pacifying the leader without finishing the job sounds entirely too much like Iraq. It makes us worry. It also harkens back to the questions we asked years ago: Should we get involved in another country's internal problems -and when are we harming more than we are helping? In addition, we're now left to ask whether an international coalition worth its salt can be successful without the U.S. at its helm. We're waiting to see the outcome, hoping that the people of Libya can be free and thrive without the threat of an insane dictator's ire looming over them. However, should a U.S. soldier's boot touch Libyan soil, our president will have not only his own country but also the world to answer to. He's drawn a line in the sand, and he needs to stick to it. a l l e independent fo rida Paul Runnestrand EDITOR Elizabeth Behrman Joshua Saval MANAGING EDITORS Cynthia Despres OPINIONS EDITOR The Alligator encourages comments from readers Letters to the editor should not exceed 150 words (about one etter-sized page) They mustbe typed, double-spaced and must include the author's name, classification and phone number Names wiii be withheld if the writer shows just cause We reserve the right to edit for length, grammar, styie and iibei Send letters to ietters@aiiigatororg, bring them to 1105 W University A or send them to PO Box 14257, GainesviIle, FL 32604-2257Columns of about 450 words about original topics and editorial cartoons are also welcome Questions?

THIS. -0 1 Critical analysis of early everyone agrees that critical thinking is a skill essential for children to develop as early as possible. Throughout life, whether they are reading about historical events, watching the news, talking with friends or solving complex homework problems, they will be forced to think critically about issues that confront them. Thus, it makes sense, and is good public policy, for public schools to expose children to a variety of appropriate issues and allow them to critically examine these issues. This is exactly what the Florida Senate has proposed to ensure in a recent bill, which would require critical analysis of Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution content, as well as of the corrupt ideologies that led to the Holocaust; the contributions of women, African Americans, and Hispanic Americans to our history and culture; and other important concepts and ideas. No one takes issue with these provisions of the bill, and most generally agree that critical analysis of these subjects is a laudable educational objective. Yet, Democratic legislators, the American Civil Liberties Union and others still seek to sink the bill. Why? It is because SB 1854, as the legislation is known, also seeks to ensure a "thorough presentation and critical analysis of the scientific theory of evolution." This sounds like a good idea, right? Apparently not. Evidently, it is not OK to critically examine evolution. The ACLU has charged that this bill is a thinly veiled attempt by Sen. Stephen Wise, sponsor of the legislation, to introduce religion into science classrooms. OK. Even if it is, how does this change anything? Even if the sponsor of the bill does have ultenor motives in introducing it, the legislation's language does not substitute Bible class for evolution needed biology; it simply encourages critical thinking by students. Do opponents of the bill want children to check their critical thinking caps at the classroom door, or do kSmitthey really want children to favor Zack Sit the ideas and ideologies that these letters@alligator org opponents favor? Taking arguments advanced by opponents such as Howard Simon, executive director of the Florida ACLU, to their logical extremes, discoveries by great scientists -Isaac Newton, Robert Boyle, Michael Faraday, Lord Kelvin and Gregor Mendel, just to name a few -all would be suspect because they, in some way, comingled their scientific and religious beliefs. Even Albert Einstein, who disavowed belief in a personal god, could have his work called into question because he acknowledged a belief that his god created the "immutable laws of nature." Surely, opponents of the bill would not seek to stifle the critical thinking of Einstein, yet this is exactly what they seek to do to Florida's school children. The U.S. Supreme Court has acknowledged that "teaching a variety of scientific theories about the origins of humankind to school children might be validly done with the clear secular intent of enhancing the effectiveness of science instruction." Although the sponsor of this bill probably favors creationism over evolution, it seems clear he is aware of Supreme Court precedent in this area and crafted the bill to pass Constitutional muster and encourage students to think critically in a wide array of areas.

MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2011E ALLIGATOR, 7 Rowdy Reptile questions ticket pricing While the Florida ticketing office may find it surprising that their 75 student tickets allotted for the UCSB and UCLA games didn't sell out, I'm certainly not. Expecting students to pay $154 up front to watch the Gauchos and Bruins is asinine. With tuition hikes and scholarship cuts every year, finding 75 students willing to shell out that much money is going to be harder to do than finding a 2011 FSU graduate a job. Watching this basketball team "rise up" over the past four years, I'm really appalled by the ticketing office's discouragement of having that "sixth man" on the court via students in attendance. I'm not saying that boosters and alumni don't cheer, but no one can argue that students don't do it better. Whether it takes adding S5 to booster ticket prices to subsidize student tickets or just making the University Athletic Association take a hit, the responsibility for any lack of Gator spirit in later rounds of the NCAA tournament is going to rest solely on the UAA's shoulders. Go Gators. Jordan Ball UF student Mardi Gras letter dull, condescending First off, I must say I generally don't read Tiffany Miles' letters because, overall, I find their content to be dull and presented in a condescending manner. My real complaint is with the letter in Wednesday's edition entitled "Mardi Gras article embarrassing, trashy." I was embarrassed to even have a letter like this in my school newspaper. It only glorifies prudence and virtue (probably of a good nature as well), bookwormism and otherwise total dullness. By focusing on nothing but the negative aspects of partying -not saying there are any negative ones -the letter was the epitome of the smart-ass college kid who might have passed some tests but is not aware enough of her surroundings to know that nobody plays "wine-pong." Seriously. The letter was trash, and it only made the already crappy editorial section even trashier. I will spread only negative things about Tiffany Miles until she becomes fun. Jamie Garvey Gainesville resident Gator Nation stands together for Japan here are moments in time when I am immensely proud to be a Florida Gator. Thursday was one of them. No, it wasn't due to many students' impressive performances on St. Patty's Day. It wasn't even due to our dominance in basketball. It was due to the sight I witnessed at the candlelight vigil in commemoration of the disaster in Japan. Hundreds of students sat huddled in the Reitz Union Amphitheatre. There were students from all communities Ben Meyers and cliques. Unity prevailed as all the students joined in praying for those affected by Speaking Out the tragedy and committing to doing all they can to help. We heard emotional tales of those here who know individuals who lost their homes and even their lives. Though the words were in Japanese, the emotion transcended language and generated compassion from all in attendance. I am writing today not only to report on an event that made me indescribably proud of The Gator Nation but also to urge all reading to do what they can to aid the victims of the disaster. I understand times are tough, but please consider donating any spare change you may have. And please consider donating any of your spare time toward helping Hope for Japan as they organize our UF community in response to the disaster. Those of us who were here when disaster struck Haiti know what we as a university community are capable of. Tragedy, despite the horror and sadness it brings, truly brings out the best in many people. Let's do it again, Gators.

Also watch assistant sports editor Greg Luca's desperate, futile attempts at sneaking into Florida's spring football practices. By GREG LUCA Alligator Staff Writer gluca@alligator org TAMPA -After a year filled with clutch shots in big moments, there was little surprise when the Gators turned to Erving Walker with their season on the line. Behind the junior guard's game-high 21 points, including 10 over the final four minutes, No. 2-seed Florida advanced to the Sweet 16 with a 73-65 win over seventh-seeded UCLA (23-11) on Saturday in the St. Pete Times Forum. The Gators (28-7) will face third-seeded BYU on Thursday in New Orleans after the Cougars scored an 89-67 win over Gonzaga on Saturday. "Erv is fearless," senior forward Chandler Parsons said. "Any time the guy shoots the ball, I think it's going in. He's got a knack for hitting big shots." With 3:58 remaining and the Gators up by three, the 5-foot-8 Walker drove the lane and hit an acrobatic jumper over 6-foot10 UCLA center Joshua Smith. Two minutes later, Walker corralled an inbounds pass near midcourt, gathered himself and drilled a three, stretching UF's lead to four. "He lives for moments when the games are tight," sophomore guard Kenny Boynton said. "He has a big heart and he's not scared to take the big shot." Walker's work wasn't done there. With Florida ahead by four and less than 40 seconds to play, he twice beat the press, drew a foul and hit both free throws. "He's not afraid to fail," senior center Vernon Macklin said. "He wants the ball in his hands at the end of the clock." Walker's performance proved to be especially clutch following an injury to Boynton, who landed on Smith's foot and twisted his left ankle after a jump shot. f Boynton checked out with about 4:30 left in the game, just before Walker's run began. Boynton wasn't the only Gator trapped on the bench, as VerSEE HOOPS, PAGE 15 Gators sweep Tigers behind Maddox, Moyer By JESSE SIMONTON Alligator Staff Writer jsimonton@alligator org After two consecutive dramatic comebacks and a gem featuring few offensive highlights, the top-ranked Gators won their eighth straight game Sunday, capping off a stellar week with a 7-3 drubbing of No. 5 LSU in Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge, La.

Maddox, primarily UF's starting first baseman, relieved freshman Karsten Whitson in the fifth inning after the phenom struggled with his command in his first road t: F start.

14, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2011 UF GYMNASTICS Gators fall short of repeat title at SEC Championship By ALLISON BANKO Alligator Writer The Gators rolled up to the Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center prepared to defend their conference title, but after small mistakes, mild sicknesses and pestering injuries, they fell short. No. 1 Florida (17-2, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) was edged out of the SEC Championship by Alabama (17-1, 5-1) on Saturday, as the Crimson Tide scored a 197.225 to UF's 196.975. The Gators kicked off the meet with a phenomenal warm-up and aggressive performances on bars, but the competition went south when the team entered its beam and floor routines. "It just seemed like the athletes got really tight and had some uncharacteristic wobbles that we normally don't have," said coach Rhonda Faehn, who was named SEC Coach of the Year in a postmeet ceremony. Freshman Mackenzie Caquatto, a usual beam star, had to sit out after rolling an ankle in practice last week. Sophomore Ashan6e Dickerson, who felt under the weather throughout the competition, posted a 9.625. "Poor Nay," Faehn said. "Coming off the bus, she had flu-like symptoms. She felt like she was going to throw up pretty much most of the night." Dickerson stuck it out and competed in all four events, joining freshman Alaina Johnson in the allaround. Although the beam lineup was missing Caquatto, whom Faehn said is the team's top performer in the event, senior Alicia Goodwin stepped up to round out the squad and scored a 9.9 -the best of her college career. However, the Gators failed to maintain their momentum on floor exercise, mainly due to landing mistakes on tumbling passes. Johnson and senior Maranda Smith came through for the Gators with their performances, each earning a 9.9. Johnson's combined scores earned her the second place in the all-around, and she earned SEC Freshman of the Year honors following the competition. The freshman said she loved every minute of the meet, but in the end, the little flaws were too much for the Gators to overcome. "Everything counts," she said. "We just weren't quite as aggressive as we should've been. Even though we got second, that just makes us want to work harder in the gym and focus on every detail and every thing up for nationals." With a week off before the NCAA Regional Championships, Faehn said she is focused on getting her athletes back in the gym and getting their bodies healthy again. Florida women finish disappointing seventh at NCAA meet UF SCORED 226 POINTS, 198 BEHIND FIRST-PLACE CALIFORNIA. By MELISSA PENDER Alligator Writer Despite their best efforts, the Gators were unable to recapture last year's glory. The No. 7 Florida women's team took seventh in this year's NCAA swimming and diving championships with 226 points, falling six points behind sixth-place Texas. No. 2 California took home the title, racking up 424 points. Freshman Elizabeth Beisel led UF, finaling in three events over the three-day competition. She took second in the 400-yard individual medley, third in the 200 backstroke and eighth in the 500 freestyle, earning five All-America accolades. Juniors Sarah Bateman, Teresa Crippen and Shara Stafford made the "A" finals in individual events as well, and senior diver Monica Dodson placed fifth in the 3-meter springboard competition. "I'm so excited for Monica," diving coach Donnie Craine said. "She's never made the finals on any of the springboard events. She came in after winning the SEC Championships in the 3-meter and made [finaling] her goal." The Gators swam in the finals of two relay events, which they have struggled in all year due to health issues and lineup changes. Bateman, Beisel, Stafford and freshman Hilda Luthersdottir, who set a school record in the 100 breaststroke, took sixth place in the 400 medley relay. A fifth-place finish in the 800 free relay by the team of Beisel, Crippen, Stafford and sophomore Jamie Bohunicky propelling the Gators to seventh place at the end of the second day. Bohunicky said she hopes this weekend's disappointment will help the team continue to improve and .eventually retake the title Swimming next season. "Obviously this isn't where we wanted to finish, but I'm still proud of the Gator spirit we showed in continuing to fight and persevere," she said. "I couldn't be more proud of this team, and I know that this experience will help us next year. The swimmers' performances earned 38 All-America honors overall. Florida head coach Gregg Troy said he blames the coaches, not the swimmers, for UF falling short. "I'm extremely proud of how the team competed," Troy said. "We fought hard all weekend long. As a staff, we probably didn't do as good of a job as getting them prepared as we would have liked, but it was tremendous effort on their part." He said the health issues the team has faced this year, including Stafford's absence during the end of the season, held them back, but the team kept a positive attitude during the championships. "They showed a lot of character and mental toughness in the adversity they overcame not only this week, but the entire season," he said.

MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2011 U ALLIGATOR, 15 Boynton leaves game with ankle sprain, hopes to be ready for BYU HOOPS, from page 13 non Macklin, Patric Young and Erik Murphy were all limited by foul trouble following intense, physical battles with Smith. "Everybody is ready to come and step up," Young said. "On any given night, somebody could have a great game." Seven different Gators scored at least seven points, with a total of 15 coming from UF's bench. With his frontcourt teammates in foul trouble, senior Alex Tyus stepped up and notched eight points and a game-high 13 rebounds in a season-high 33 minutes, providing the prowess on the glass he predicted UF would need. "I've never met a guy who watches basketball and knows basketball like Alex Tyus," Macklin said. "He actually said before the game,'This is one of those games I have to rebound. I have to rebound and go to the glass relentlessly.' And that's what he did." Saturday's game, which featured 11 ties and 10 lead changes, was hotly contested from start to finish, as neither team led by more than five for the first 34 minutes, something the Gators have grown accustomed to in a season full of close calls. "I'm kind of used to that feeling with, 'Oh no, we might lose,"' Young Boynton said. "I'm getting used to that feeling because I know we're going to come through in the end." INJURY UPDATE: Boynton's injury has been diagnosed as a mild left ankle sprain, the sophomore guard said. He briefly returned to action, but the pain severely limited him and coach Billy Donovan decided to keep him on the bench. "I'm going to try to do therapy all day this week and be back by Thursday," Boynton said. Gators' three-point defense key vs. Eagles WHOOPS, from page 13 Jordan Jones has 69 makes while shooting better than 38 percent. She made three of four against UMBC while leading all scorers with 18 points and said afterward she thrives in the tournament setting. "This time of the year, it's win or go home," Jones said. "There's definitely a different mindset. I enjoy this. I enjoy the pressure of just comGuard Jordan Jones has made 55.2 percent of her threes the last five games, and UF will need that to continue to match FGCU tonight. ing out here and knowing we have to win to advance." Jones has made a habit of stepping up late in the year, as she holds the Postseason WNIT record for three-pointers made in a game with nine against North Carolina A&T on March 21, 2008. But that was a home game as a member of South Carolina, a much different atmosphere than Jones and Florida will face when they enter Alico Arena. On the strength of their outside shooting, the Eagles have won 42 straight at home and boast a better home winning percentage than Tennessee since moving to Division I four years ago. "Nationally, their record speaks for itself," Butler said. "They are a tough matchup for us, but we're excited to still be playing." She said the Gators didn't communicate well in Friday's win over UMBC, something that will be critical in limiting long-distance opportunities against FGCU. Butler also added that the usual strategies for stopping three-point sharp-shooters might not apply against the Eagles. "The easy answer about how to defend the three is play tough man defense and really pressure the ball, but they are too good to do just that," Butler said. "There's not just one answer about how to stop their three-point success." FGCU's only victory over UF came at home to open the 2008-09 season. The Gators ended the Eagles' season the year before with a second-round WNIT victory in the O'Connell Center, something Jones thinks will happen again tonight. "They hate the Gators," Jones said. "I'm excited for the challenge and ready to get down there and advance in this tournament." The Alligator has sales intern positions available r the Summer and Fall semesters.

Entering Sunday, the sophomore fireballer had tossed just 3.2 innings all season, but he said afterward his arm felt great despite throwing more pitches than he had since high school. UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan has preached all year about his confidence in Maddox as a valuable bullpen arm and said, "I know he hasn't thrown a whole lot, but we weren't going to bring him out of the game unless we got into trouble." Florida displayed its deep bullpen all series against LSU, as five pitchers combined for 10.1 innings, 11 strikeouts, one walk and just one earned run. In Friday's 5-4 win, Anthony DeSclafani escaped a jam in the bottom of the ninth and earned his third save of the season. After Hudson Randall pitched 6.2 shutout innings on Saturday, lefty Nick Maronde closed the game, striking out the final four hitters in UF's 1-0 win. "Our bullpen was outstanding," O'Sullivan said. "It's a team sport. You never know who is going to be the hero, and today Baseball was Jeff Moyer coming off the bench, and Maddox coming out of the bullpen. You just never know, but it was a great team effort." Down 3-0 in the fourth, the Gators rallied for five runs, including three with two outs. The inning was highlighted by Moyer's two-out pinch-hit single up the middle, plating two and giving Florida the lead. "That was a clutch at-bat there," O'Sullivan said. "Those two out hits win ball games." Moyer, who was 3 for 3 with three RBIs, added an insurance run in the ninth with a towering shot into the right-field bleachers. "Sully called my number," Moyer said. "It's great that he has trust in me. "I haven't seen a team like this before," the junior transfer added. "It could be anyone on any given night. Sully and [assistant coach] Brad [Weitzel] do a great job plugging guys in where they can thrive and help the team." f c a NATIONAL GUARD Recruiting 1 00'y 'UITION G.I.

16, ALLIGATOR E MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2011 Bruns ties career high, lifts Florida over Syracuse THE WIN WAS UF'S SECOND OVER A TOP-15 TEAM. By JOHN BOOTHE Alligator Writer Syracuse constantly shadowed Florida's top scoring threat, chasing Kitty Cullen all over the field Saturday. But as the No. 11 Orange (2-4) soon found out, there's more than one piece to No. 10 UF's offense. Behind a career-high-tying six goals from sophomore Ashley Bruns, the Gators (8-1) scored their second win of the season over a top15 opponent, beating Syracuse 16-11 at Dizney Stadium. "You can't ask for anything more from Ashley," UF coach Amanda O'Leary said. "She was dominant on the offensive and also on the ride as well. Not really much more to say than she was the driving force today." In the first half, Cullen was repeatedly face-guarded by Orange defenders, effectively taking her out of the game. No. 9 Georgetown tried a similar tactic on March 9, but Cullen was still able to net four goals. Syracuse's defense found success with the strategy, as Orange defender Becca Block held Cullen, the nation's leading scorer, without a shot attempt in the first 30 minutes. "It wasn't a surprise. Kitty's been playing very well this season, so I think we knew it was going to come," Bruns said. "We've been working on ways to get her open, setting picks and screens, and it ended up working really well today." With one Lacrosse option out of the Gators' arsenal, the offense centered around Bruns, who tied a school record with her six goals, and fellow midfielder Brittany Dashiell. The pair combined for five first-half goals to give their team a 6-5 lead at the break. Dashiell was coming off a fivegoal game against Colgate and continued her hot streak with three more. The sophomore was also critical in helping Florida win the possession battle, taking all the team's faceoffs and finishing tied with a game-high four draw controls. "If you possess the ball, the other team can't score," O'Leary said. "For us to get those 18 draws was critical, because we needed possession of the ball. .If you give them an inch, the ball's going in the back of the net unfortunately." The Gators owned four of the three goals in two minutes. As the Orange's defense scrambled to get set after Florida won control, the Gators finally worked the ball into Cullen, who notched three second-half goals. "All seven of our attackers can come in and score," Dashiell said. "Taking out one player isn't going to make that big of a difference, so we just used her and used that faceguard to our advantage." With Cullen just starting to get involved, Bruns continued her strong play well into the second half. The midfielder had a hand in first five possessions in the second three straight goals for the Gators, half due to Dashiell's work on fascoring two and dishing out an asceoffs, allowing the offense to score sist on another. UF SOFTBALL Rogers dominates Rebels as Gators earn series sweep By STEPHEN SHEEHAN Alligator Writer Florida continued its conference dominance this weekend. For the third time this month, the No. 2 Gators (30-1, 7-0 Southeastern Conference) swept an SEC opponent, and for the fifth consecutive game, freshman Hannah Rogers started and shut down a team from Mississippi. After earning two wins against Mississippi State on Wednesday and two more against Ole Miss Friday and Saturday, the young righty picked up her 16th victory as the Gators took advantage of the Rebels' severe control issues to win 11-3. Rogers allowed three unearned runs on two hits in five innings, struck out four batters and lowered her ERA to a team-leading 0.43. Rogers has had to shoulder the load recently with Stephanie Brombacher sidelined with arm pain. Although there is no timetable for Brombacher's return, Rogers has proven more than capable of being the team's top pitcher. "We haven't had just one kid get the ball in five straight games in a long time," UF coach Tim Walton said. "Her strength and dependability warranted her going out there." While some would think the high number of starts could result in fatigue, the actual workload was manageable. Over the past five days, Rogers threw 220 pitches over 23 innings. By comparison, three Rebels pitchers combined for 177 pitches Sunday. Although the Gators didn't put Sunday's game out of reach until the final inning, they drew 15 walks, had 10 hits and outscored the Rebels 37-6 this weekWalton end. Down 3-2 after four innings, UF scored nine runs during the final three to seal the victory. "A lot of times people think drawing a lot of walks makes it easier to hit," Walton said. "But sometimes it's the opposite. We struggled the first three innings, but then we got some big hits in key situations." The Gators' patience resulted in two bases-loaded walks in the fifth to give them the lead. Right fielder Kelsey Horton, who had three RBIs, added another run with her sixthinning single before UF exploded for six more in the final frame. The scoring was led by two of the Gators' most consistent hitters, seniors Kelsey Bruder and Megan Bush, who each drove in two runs on the day.
