WRUF chief meteorologist Jeff Huffman wrote in an email that Wednesday night was the coldest night of the fall season so far. He said a freeze is not expected in Gainesville, and the next cold front is expected to set in Monday or Tuesday of next week. Meanwhile, Huffman recommended Wednesday that students bundle up.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 3 William A. England / Alligator StaffStudents from Dance Marathon set up a jail on Turlington Plaza on Wednesday afternoon. Members had a bail set, and pedestrians could pay for their release. In return, the dancers would perform. All proceeds were donated to Dance Marathon and Childrens Miracle Network. ALEX HARRISAlligator Staff Writeraharris@alligator.orgStudents passing through Turlington Plaza on Wednesday might have been alarmed to see begging students inside a giant cage, but dont worry it was for the kids. Jamie Heekin, a 21-year-old UF food sciences and human nutrition senior and overall director for Dance Marathon, said the stunt was a jailbreak fundraising Turlington. Normally, she said, the event takes place outside the Stephen C. OConnell center during Dance Marathon. The plastic prison was stuffed ated students who signed up for shifts and random students who just wanted to help, Heekin said. Some people just came up and said, What are you guys doing? Can I hop in jail? she said. Students inside the 10-foot-tall cage set their own bail and had to beg passers-by for money in order to be released, Heekin said. Bail was set anywhere from $5 to $100, and proceeds went to individual Dance Marathon pages. Seth Fisher, an 18-year-old UF accounting freshman, handed over $2, much to the delight of a cheering inmate. I know what its like to raise money, he said, so I just wanted to reach out and help somebody.Gators jailed for Dance Marathon THE FIRE WAS NOV. 4.

AMJ Inc. of Gainesville, located at 502 NW 16th Ave., has had a solar panel system end of last year. If we do discover that the panels were a source, wed like to know why so that we can make sure that doesnt happen to us, said Scott Buchanan, who is part of the management team. Small World Daycare & Learning Center, 1214 NW Fourth St., has had solar panels in its facility since 2011. Russell Scoates, the owner, said one of the reasons he decided to install the system was to use it as a teaching tool. I thought it would be educational for the children, Scoates said. We have a TV monitor installed by Solar Impact that shows how much electricity is being generated. He said he is not worried about his system being dangerous and has never had any issues with it.

REBECCA TURKELAlligator Contributing WriterAn early start to Black Friday could affect locals Thanksgiving traditions this year. Walmart announced Tuesday the chain will begin Black Friday specials at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving at all locations, according to a news release. The chain follows a trend in retail as more stores opt to offer deals earlier on Thanksgiving Day. Taylor Chambers, a 21-year-old UF health education and behavior senior, agreed that the longer Black Friday period cuts into traditions. It takes away from the spirit and celebration that Thanksgiving is, he said. This change risks taking loved ones away from their families to work new hours, Chambers said. Devin McDaniel, a 20-year-old UF marketing junior, is an avid Black Friday shopper, but the earlier start doesnt excite her. I was upset because my family usually has dinner around 5:30, McDaniel said, so this cuts into my family time. She said the start time could shape a more materialistic society. Khadijah Warnke, an employee at the Oaks Mall, said staff was told her store may open sometime Thanksgiving evening, which stinks because people are still eating with their family and enjoying meals, she said. I dont understand what the big deal is, she said. People already have 24 hours to go shopping.Black Friday sales starting night of ThanksgivingFewer agencies are running winter drivesShe said there might be a higher demand now than in past years because there are fewer agencies able to run winter drives this year. Nelsons niece, Natasha James, accompanied her to volunteer at the drive back to help downtown today. Today marks the 15th Annual Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungrys Breakfast on the Plaza. Lazarus Restoration Ministries is one of many agencies that will be on Bo Diddley Community Plaza from 9 a.m. to noon to help feed and clothe the homeless, and it will bring the coat drive downtown for the day. I can understand what theyre going through, you know. Been there, done that, James said. I really liked helping out. Lazarus Restoration Ministries is one of 26 agencies in the Alachua County Coalition for the Homeless and Hungry, according to the coalitions website. According to the Alachua County Homeless Census conducted on Jan. 24, the countys homeless count rose from 1,781 to 2,094 last year. Nelson said she thinks the count appears to be growing again this year. It brings me shame to know that so many people are in need, Nelson said. But thats just real life.

SEVEN SIDEWALK CAFES WOULD BE AFFECTED BY THE CHANGE. MCKENZIE COLLARDAlligator Contributing WriterOutdoor seating may go mainstream for Main Street venues. The Gainesville Community Development Committee approved a plan Wednesday to allow more sidewalk cafe space along state-maintained roads, including Main Street, but at a cost. The Department of Transportation no longer allows free use of state-owned sidewalk space. Changes in state policy now require an annual lease of $2 per square foot and general liability insurance of at least $2 million. Now, the city must enter into a lease agreement with the state to offer outdoor dining space. The request for an agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation will pass to the City Commission, Commissioner Thomas Hawkins said. Hawkins said he supports the proposal and believes more outboth downtown businesses and visitors. There are currently seven sidewalk cafes that would be affected by the change, including The Top and Sweet Mels, plus two other businesses looking to expand on North Main Street. Scott Shillington, co-owner of The Top, said the committees support is a step in the right direction because under the status quo, no new sidewalk cafe space is allowed. He and his business partner also own The Wooly and Pop A Top Corner Store and hope to add sidewalk seating to both locations. The most recent Gainesville restaurant to add patio seating on state-owned sidewalk space was How Do You Roll?, a sushi of the Stadium Club building on University Avenue. Shillington said hes seen recent growth in the amount of people living and working downtown. He said he thinks outdoor seating will offer more space and visual appeal. Id like people to be able to enjoy sitting outdoors, sip some wine and maybe grab a bite to eat, he said. It will take some compromising.

AMANDA AREVALOAlligator Contributing WriterA group of students wearing red, blue, yellow and green shirts gathered on the North Lawn on Wednesday with nothing but headphones, MP3 Students were told to downchronize their watches and play the recording at exactly 2 p.m., at which point instructions would be given to them, according to the event page. Jaclyn Gutierrez, a 19-yearold UF marketing sophomore and director of Reitz Union Board Entertainments Arts Committee, created a partnership with Improv Everywhere Its just a joyful activity that you probably wouldnt have the guts to do on your own. It would also be really creepy on your own, Gutierrez said. But when you do it with a group of people, its fun. Improv Everywhere, a New York City-based prank collective, is currently touring these Mp3 Experiment events at international festivals and college campuses, according to to participate, Gutierrez said. The recorded instructions, given by an omniscient voice named Steve, gave different commands from awkward handshakes with strangers to dancing like an animal to following a random person, said 19-year-old Robert Taylor, a UF mathematics sophomore who participated. Its good fun, Taylor said. You just have an excuse to fool around in public. As the group completed each new activity, passers-by would stop and stare. Sarah Brinkerhoff, an 18-year-old UF engineering freshman, came by the lawn to watch her friend participate in It was cool to see peoples reactions that didnt know it was happening, Brinkerhoff said. The event ended with a ballow shirts teaming on one side, leaving blue and green on the Participant Brittany Doyle, a 19-year-old UF political science junior, felt the surprise was the best part of the event, though.

Meaghan Jameson, 23, and her boyfriend, Dan Kenny, 26, started their journey on Nov. 5 and will continue through January. Helping people is just how I was raised, Jameson said. I used to pay peoples parking tickets in my hometown for fun. Jameson and Kenny created the Random Acts of Kindness Road Trip as a way to continue helping others in a creative way. Funding started in August and will continue throughout the trip. Donated funds will be used solely for the random acts. Money needed for lodging, food and gas will come from personal savings, Jameson said. becoming more and more realistic, she said. Almost $5,000 has been raised so far. The road trip started last week in Michigan and will continue through Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, ida, where the couple will spend Christmas with Jamesons family. I was quitting my job and going on a road trip across the U.S., she said. But they were supportive. Jameson said she thinks the trip has been successful so far, and Elizabeth Hart, a 26-year-old teacher in Chicago, agrees. Hart teaches at an all-boys school in the low-income, crime-stricken neighborhood of Englewood. Meaghan contacted me and asked for a student who said. I knew just the student. Jameson came to Chicago with a bag of art supplies for an artistically talented freshman, Hart said. When he opened it, he just whispered, Awesome, and went right to drawing. Hart was also given $600, and $130 of it was used to pay for a students mothers medication for the month, Hart said. Once I gave it to her and explained the RAK Road Trip idea, she just burst into tears, Jameson said.

Gimme the loot: New ranking should make humanities majors uneasyAs a wise poet once said, Cash rules everything around me/C.R.E.A.M. get the money/dolla dolla bill yaaaaaall. The men of Wu-Tang Clan arent alone. A recent Times Higher Education ranking revealed that cash rules everything around Gators, too: UF was ranked 49 out of the top 100 universities that produce the most millionaires worldwide. In addition to being the only Florida school to make the list, UF beat out the University of Notre Dame, Rutgers University and Brown University. Its no surprise UF ranked higher than some smaller liberal arts colleges. The Times Higher Educations research found that engineering degrees produce the most millionaires, folcial degrees. This is to be expected. Its no secret that degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics STEM demand is consistent: Obviously, well always need engineers to build our roads, cars and spaceships. We need doctors, IT scientists. The ROI, or return on investment, of a STEM degree is much higher compared to one in, say, journalism. Although UFs high ranking on the list is good news for engineers and lawyers and scientists and technology wizards and business owners it might stir up old debates on a state level when the time comes for Rick Scott to make decisions about higher-education funding. Remember in 2011 when he said he wanted to shift more money into STEM departments and away from liberal arts disciplines? Is it a vital interest of the state to have more anthropoloeducation then Im going to take that money to create jobs. So I want that money to go to degrees where people can get jobs in this state. The statement seemed to be a shot at his daughter, who holds an undergraduate degree in anthropology from the College of William & Mary. Its an age-old argument: The value of a STEM degree versus the value of a humanities degree or a communications degree, for that matter. We can discuss at length how STEM majors and humanities majors have a symbiotic relationship, but the crux of the argument is in how the value of each degree is measured. Engineers obviously make a lot of money, lawyers make a lot of money, doctors make a lot of money, and investment bankers earn high salaries. Teachers, reporters, social workers and HR professionals earn low salaries. We all know money is the most common and accessible measure of success, and this new Times ranking provides politicians like Rick Scott more ammunition toward pulling funding from humanities in favor of science and math.Prez candidates should appear in SunshineAmid the revelations that the government watches nearly everything we do, it may come as a surprise that states have actual laws ensuring government transparency. Called the Sunshine Law in Florida, this legislation helps shine a light on the doings of our government. After the NSA revelations, it comes as no surprise that some legislators are trying to roll back this law. In Florida, there is one such attempt coming from proposed law would keep potential university presidents names private. Basically, if a school is looking to hire a new executive, applicants would be shaded from the Sunshine Law until Kerner cited a paper from the University of Houston Law Center that states the publicity surrounding the selection process of university presidents discourages some from applying. Without the Sunshine Law, he argues, schools will have stronger candidates to choose from as a result. plicants in the past, however. Eric Barron was chosen as president of Florida State University in 2010, and his impressive credentials include previous positions as the dean of the Jackson School of Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin and director of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo., according to the FSU website. With one paper based on two schools as evidence, Kerner seeks to hide nearly the entire presidential-seeking process. Granted, there is still the 21-day window for interested parties to get to know the candidates, but that is not enough time for adequate information to be obtained, not to mention, the process would be almost over at that point. The government answers to the people, not the other way around. Kerners bill would skirt the publics ability to evaluate the candidates who may potentially govern a university. In the American democratic process, we dont hide candidates election time. Of course, the election of a universitys president is not the same as electing a representative or the president, but that is no excuse to hide these candidates from Floridians. University presidents make important decisions that involve students, communities and the scarce dollars they get paid with. Ill never doubt the ability of UF and other universities to attract top candidates, and Im not suggesting we dont have the ability to attract great candidates, Kerner told The Gainesville Sun. If you dont doubt it, then why hide them? Secrecy encourages corruption, not good practice. The only thing this law would do is make the presidential selection process less transparent and give the community less say in who is ultimately chosen. with connections. After all, those who would be discouraged by transparency in the presidential selection process Its important that government agencies be held accountable to the people they work for. Thats how a democracy works. Education, though not inherently democratic, stands as the institution it is today because of the democratic process in America. It is unfair to the community, the faculty and the students to hide who their next chief administrator will be. It discredits their ability to evaluate and comment on their future president. Weve got enough secrets. Lets not start keeping any more. Justin Jones is a UF journalism senior. His column runs on Thursdays.

CHLOE FINCHAvenue WriterLast week, Minneapolis-based band Motion City Soundtrack whose songs you set to autoplay on your MySpace pages, whose lyrics you scrawled on your arms during that boring ninth-grade history class and whose very name stirs up memories of checkerboard Vans and middle school dances played at High Dive with Relient K and Driver Friendly. The group gave a high-energy performance punctuated with thrashing guitars, moshing guys in fedoras, heavy distortion and random crowd surfers. High school kids with Sharpie Xs on their hands and parents in Muscle-bound boys in frat tanks, punks with blue mohawks, and girls in plaid mens shirts and beanies gathered under one roof to see Motion City Soundtrack, Go, last year and a new single, Inside Out, in September. Go was our most beautiful, our most textured, mature album weve done, drummer Claudio Rivera said in an interview. Where do you go from there? Lets bring it back. Lets strip it back down and make it rock n roll. Weve always had the pop sense, the dark, adult, like, in-Justins-head lyrics, keyboardist Jesse Johnson said, and weve also had aggressive Jawbox, Fugazi guitars. Weve always battled on how everything melts together. Where the tracks on Go were polished, Inside Out is rough around the edges. Go was edged with a little more pop than the groups previous albums, especially on tracks such as True Romance a love song and the beginning track, Circuits and Wires. Inside Out is a return to punk angrier, more frantic and more aggressive. All in all, its the type of music that sounds good through headphones and car stereos but sounds even better live in a small black-box venue like High Dive. Although the band is returning to an earlier punk sound and playing rock shows, the men have matured both musically and personally. I mean, everyones married except me, Rivera said. Were in our earlyand mid-30s ... It kind of happens automatically with time. I shudder to think about a 35or 40-year-old thats still, like, boozing it up at a dive bar and getting crazy. Its something that happens as you grow up. And its just being in a band putting out albums for 12 years, Johnson said. If we put out the same album six times in a row, itd probably be pretty boring.THURSDAY,NOVEMBER 14, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/AVENUEWilliam A.

The band stopped in El Paso, Texas, to record some of the material that was created while traveling.

Nick Kubley said they started with just acoustic songs to get the fans involved but decided to start playing the new tunes SEE PASSAFIRE, PAGE 10

Visit Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, I have been having an argument with my roommate for a few weeks. He eats the food in the fridge that is mine and then replaces it with a cheaper variety or not at all. Im literally ready to take a dump on his bed because his terrible replacements get me sick. Ive already asked and then told him to stop. I want to cross the line of civility to make my point. Do you have any suggestions? Yes, I am OK with crapping in his pillowcase. Dear Friend, Your roommate sounds like a dog that knows how to open the refrigerator or a dumpster animal. If you just want revenge, buy whatever food you think hell eat, which is probably anything, and put laxatives in it. Its not your fault that your roommate is a big, fat see-you-next-Tuesday. If your lease is not even close to being up, you should eat out more and not in the good way I wish I was talking about. Start looking for a new roommate. There is nothing worse than coming home to someone you cant stand and an empty freezer where there was once a frozen pizza.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Gators in the NBAHouston Rockets forward Chandler Parsons recorded 22 points, seven assists, six rebounds and four blocks in a 123-117 overtime loss to the New Orleans Pelicans.Havana Solaun suffered a torn ACL on Sunday against Texas A&M. Read the story online at ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer@adamDpincusMike Davis felt burned by Florida. Now, the South Carolina running back can stick it to the school he feels betrayed him two years ago. The former Florida commitment was one of two running backs in the 2012 class. By December 2011, coach Will Muschamp had hauled in the duo of Davis and Seffner native Matt Jones. But Davis de-committed from UF after pledging his allegiance to the school nearly a year earlier at Floridas junior day. Davis published this cryptic tweet on Dec. 4, 2011: Its funny when you look a coach in the eye [and] see right through the B.S. [they] be [feeding] you. He chose South Carolina over Georgia and Tennessee on Jan. 13, 2012. Things happened; there was a misunderstanding with the Florida coaches, Davis told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in 2011. I cant comment on what went wrong. It just wasnt meant to be. Some things happened, and I dont want to comment on what happened. Its been two years since Davis spurned the Gators. One team is in contention for a Southeastern Conference Eastern Division bowl eligibility. No. 11 South Carolina (7-2, 5-2 SEC) hosts Florida (4-5, 3-4) on Saturday night in Columbia, S.C. Davis leads the SEC in rushing with 1,058 yards and 117.6 yards per game. He boasts an impressive 6.4 yards per carry and has 10 touchdowns. The Gators have only allowed 16 offensive touchdowns as a team. Davis was part of a quartet of Stephenson, Ga., high school players whom Florida coveted. Davis, defensive end Jarontay Jones, linebacker Raphael Kirby and defensive tackle Jafar Mann were billed as the Stephenson Four. Mann, a converted offensive lineman, was the only one to sign with the Gators. He was cited for marijuana possession two days before transferring from Florida. Jones transferred from Virginia Tech to Bethune-Cookman, while Kirby became a reserve linebacker for Miami. Davis felt hurt after Florida pursued future Georgia running back Keith Marshall, according to several reports. Whatever the reason for the switch, Florida isnt wasting any time dwelling on it. Its not really something you ever think about. It happens every year at every school, UF defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. These guys bounce around, so its not really something you think about much afterwards. You know, you move on with the guys you got, and were happy with the guys we got. Thats who you have, so you coach them up and AP PhotoMike Davis (28) carries the ball during South Carolinas 34-16 victory against Mississippi State on Nov. 2 in Columbia, S.C.

Consecutive service aces from Recek in the second set helped Florida grab a commanding lead. Those were just two of Receks three service aces on the night. She also led the team with 15 kills. Recek contributed three of Floridas 13 attack errors. I was just staying focused through the whole game, Recek said. I was not worrying about if I made some silly mistakes. I was just like keep playing, keep swinging high and hard. The Gamecocks attempted to make a comeback in the third set. the effort level by South Carolina showed Florida sweeps South Carolina MICHELLE PROVENZANOAlligator Writer@mmprovenzanoORLANDO Abby Wambach continues to leave the rest of the world in the dust. The United States Womens National Team forward and former Gator scored her 163rd career goal in an international friendly match against Brazil at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando Sunday night. Wambach shot a penalty kick to the back of the net in the 17th minute to help the U.S. notch a 4-1 victory in front of 20,274 fans. We got the penalty a couple minutes ing from the opposite teams perspective, Wambach said. Ive been taking them all week since I missed against New Zealand. I dont miss very many in a row, so Im very comfortable taking penalty kicks. Getting that goal was really important.

move forward. The team Florida brings to Williams-Brice Stadium will be very different than the squad it expected to have at this point. Jones is done for the season with a torn meniscus. Floridas defense up the middle has been decimated by season-ending injuries to Dominique Easley and Antonio Morrison. The Gamecocks blossoming talent will have the Gators at perhaps their lowest point in three seasons. Davis is ready. He posted another telling message on Monday after reminding his 19,000plus followers that he was once a UF commit: Never been so eager to play #hungry, he tweeted. 18-0-4 record. Wambach has a storied history against Brazil. She scored a goal off a header in overtime against Brazil to win the 2004 Olympic gold medal for the U.S. In 2011, Wambach powered seconds of overtime of the 2011 FIFA Womens World Cup and force the match into penalty kicks. The U.S. won 5-3. Its always an emotional battle against the Brazilians, Wambach said. Theyre so passionate and theyre so good at playing the game. It makes you learn more about your team and how well you can do going forward when you play one of the top Through her 12 years on the national team most recently earning the 2012 FIFA Womens World Player of the Year honor Wambach said she owed a lot of her focus in professional soccer to her experience at Florida from 1998-2001. Florida was one of those schools that literally tries to prepare those players to play at the next level, Wambach said. From the facilities to the travel, to the way that were fed on the road, everything is at the professional level. Thats really where I started to learn how to be a professional athlete. I didnt know it at the time that I would make it to this level, but playing there really did allow me so many more opportunities post college. I wouldnt be here if it werent for them. Wambach said the memory she cherishes most from Florida is being a part of the 1998 team, which won a national title. As a freshman, you can only dream to have a chance and to be able to come in and actually accomplish it, Wambach said. It was fairytalelike. freshman season with 19 goals the then-second highest alltime goal total by a freshman. Current freshman forward Savannah Jordan surpassed Wambachs mark with 22, which is one behind Andi Sellers all-time UF freshman record of 23 goals in a season. Jordans 2013 season total is the highest goal total UF has seen since Wambach turned in 31 in her senior year. A player like Savannah probably comes around only once in however long it has been since Ive been there, Wambach said. You really have to relish the opportunity with this player, who decided to come and play for this college. Shes a kid who I think is going to up stand the value systems that Becky wants to put in place. Im really excited to watch and see how Savannahs career unfolds. Hopefully, she can break and shatter every record Ive ever set. Wambachs memories of Florida are something shell always remember, but she has other goals now most importantly winning another World Cup. We want to not only be a team that got so close in 2011, but we want to be a team where we can say, We are world champions, Wambach said. Ive never done it. All but one player on this team right now doesnt have the ability to say that. It not only eats at us, but motivates us equally as much. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2013Kan Li / Alligator StaffJaterra Bonds (10) dribbles past North Florida junior guard Brittney Wright during the Gators 88-77 victory against the Ospreys on Sunday in the OConnell Center. Floridas senior point guard scored 25 points on 8-of-16 shooting to help the Gators improve to 2-0 to start the season. UF AVERAGING 90.5 POINTS PER GAME. GORDON STREISANDAlligator Writer@GordonStreisandSlowly but surely, the Gators competition stiffens as the season progresses. Virginia Tech tonight at 7 in Blacksburg, Va. The Gators have won back-to-back games to begin this season thanks to strong offensive showings, averaging 90.5 points per game. Florida averaged 77.5 paign. Anybody on our team is subject to hit two or three (3-pointers) in a row, coach Amanda Butler said. Especially when we have kids that are elite shooters like Carlie (Needles), like Lily (Svete). [Antoinette Bannister] is in that category. The Gators showed off their offensive versatility in a 93-65 win against Bethune-Cookman on Nov. 8. Senior Jaterra Bonds, who netted 10 points on 3-of13 shooting, contributed a game-high eight assists. That game, everybody was hot, Bonds said. I was trying to get the ball out of my hands and get it to the hot shooters. Two nights later, Bonds was the one scoring baskets. She tallied a career-high 25 points along with nine assists in an 88-77 victory against North Florida. Everybodys going to have that night where theyre scoring, Bonds said. My teammates found me in the right spot and I just attacked it. Seemingly every Gator has had one of those nights through two games. No player is averaging fewer than 8.5 points per game through two contests. Thats one of the things that we think gives us a chance to be a special team, Butler said of her teams versatile roster of scorers. A great shooter like Carlie goes only 1 for 5, but her teammate Lily goes 4 for 6. I think we have that ability across the board. Whoever is on, were going to look for them and get them the ball. Whoever is not is not going to hang their head and pout about that. Theyre just going to get more assists by hitting the one whos on. Florida has scored frequently in two games, but so have its opponents. The Gators have surrendered 71 points per game in back-to-back contests against Bethune-Cookman and North Florida, which ranked 302nd and 325th nationally with 54 and 51.8 points per game last season, respectively. Florida gave up only 57 points per game through In the early going, the Gators are missing Jennifer George, who graduated. Last season, George became eastern Conference Defensive Team. (George) was a great defender on the inside, junior Kayla Lewis said.Gators preparing for road test tonight SOCCER, from page 15Wambach impressiveUF labored in third setme right away this ones going to be much tougher, Wise said. South Carolina played so hard, and we made some unforced errors that gave them a chance to get that early lead. Florida committed four of its eight service errors in the third set, along with eight of the teams 13 attack errors. The errors helped the Gamecocks lead more than they had all night. But their effort was short lived. The Gators took the lead at 21-20 A service ace from junior Taylor Unroe won the game for Florida. Wednesdays match was just the Gators will face this week. Florida will host Missouri on Friday night. The undefeated Tigers are currently sitting atop the SEC and are one of two teams that have beaten the Gators this season. Friday night, its going to take the entire kitchen sink, Wise said. This Missouri team is as talented a team that weve faced in the OConnell Center in years.
