Austin M. Jones of Mulberry, Fla., is facing several charges innapping and robbery, according to court records. Jones, 24, and his cousin broke into the home of Paul Quandt, who later died in the hospital after he was beaten, stabbed and shocked with a Taser. Jones cousin, 25-year-old Maranda J. Martin, was convicted last year on similar charges. Late on the night of Jan. 9, 2012, Jones and Martin broke into Quandts home at 4854 NW 75th Road armed with two pistols, two rolls of tape and the Taser, according to Alligator archives. Police said the pair took a safe with more than $20,000 in gold, silver, cash, guns and electronics then sped away in Quandts white Cadillac, according to archives. They left Quandt at the house with his hands taped together. He was able to slip out of the tape using cooking oil, and he crawled to a neighbors house to ask for help before slipping into a coma, according to archives. He died eight days later at UF Health Shands Hospital. man Darry Lloyd said the trial is expected to last three weeks, which includes a phase to determine whether Jones should receive the death penalty.

RESEARCH SONIA PORTALUPPIAlligator Contributing WriterAmateur paleontologists are hoping to bring ancient history to the 21st century. UF researchers will use a four-year, $1.97 million National Science Foundation grant to create a national network of amateur and professional paleontologists. Heres an opportunity where we can get people from different parts of the country that have like interests to communicate, said Bruce MacFadden, the vertebrate paleontology curator at the Florida Museum of Natural History. The FOSSIL Project Fostering Opportunities for Synergistic STEM with Informal Learners will create connections with fossil clubs and societies around the country to educate amateurs and help digitalize fossils for collections. The projects long-term goals include an interactive website where users can input data, submit requests for information and connect with other paleontologists. It creates an interface between researchers and amateur collectors, which can be used as an outreach opportunity for the general public, said Arianna Harrington, a UF biology graduate student and research assistant. To begin building the relationship, amateur paleontologists have been invited to participate in the North American Paleontological Convention on Saturday at the Florida Museum of Natural History. Harrington said the community seems excited about the potential. Now with social networking and information being so permeable from one region to another the digitalization of fossils can be considered a direct result of how global things are getting, she said.Grant to fund creation of FOSSIL network IT WILL BE AT THE PHILLIPS CENTER. CHRISTINE ALVAREZAlligator Contributing WriterFor the second year in a row, voices from across the state will sing sans instruments at UF for the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella 2014 Tournament. The competition will be held Saturday at noon at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets can be purchased at the UFPA box 4, which is traditionally scheduled at a university central to the participating groups. Spencer Jordan, a 19-year-old UF family, youth and community sciences and English sophomore, is a part of No Southern Accent, the a cappella group at UF that is hosting the event. advantage, which doesnt really mean too much in a cappella, Jordan said. It just means that your friends and family get to be in the audience more so than if we went to Georgia. He said theres UF camaraderie while performing on campus but also a healthy competitive spirit. No Southern Accent hosted the competition last year when it sold out University Auditorium, which is why it was moved to the Phillips Center. A cappella groups from UF, the University of Miami, the University of Central Florida, Florida State University and Nova Southeastern University will be included in the lineup. Alexa Gedigian, a 22-year-old UF public relations senior, will be competing at the ICCA for the second time. Gedigian is the business manager for the Sedoctaves, the all-female a capella group at UF, which hasnt competed since 2011. Competition is really fun, but at the end of the day ... we all represent the University of Florida, and were so proud to have it here, she said. A capella semi


economics junior. Gainesville city attorney Nicolle Shalley sent an inquiry to Scotts administration regarding whether the Reitz Union could be used as an early voting center. In an advisory opinion responding to Gainesvilles request, Maria Matthews of the Florida Division of Elections stated educational facilities are not covered under the terms convention center and government-owned community center. Nelson, at Mondays press conference in the Reitz Union, said Scotts administration is trying to suppress UFs student voters to incoming November election. The statute allows early voting to occur in government-owned community centers, Nelson said. The last time I checked, the university is part of the public sector, which is a community facility that is not just used by students. However, Gainesville Mayor Ed Braddy has a different opinion on the subject. Braddy said Nelson and Crist are using Gainesvilles early voting issue to bring attention to their campaigns. The magic of an election year transforms the status quo into an act of voter suppression, he said. While Gainesville had requested the Reitz as a municipal early voting site, dates for early voting correspond with UFs Spring Break when most students arent on campus, Braddy said. Early voting locations include the the Millhopper Branch Library. Although the current locations might be out of some students reach, UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the universitys hands are tied. The University of Florida is not opposed to holding early voting on campus, Sikes said. Unfortunately, we are precluded by state law from doing so. People take pride in being part of the SEC, Parker said. Im sure it will be a heated competition. Satchel Raye, chef and owner of Satchels, said he has never been interested in competition when it comes to pizza. But Raye said his mind changed when the Facebook status he made about this one received more likes and comments than any of the restaurants past social media posts. What makes it interesting is now they make it an SEC competition, he said. So then all of a sudden its like, Well, how can you not? Raye said he would be excited to see how the competition plays out because Satchels was built not only around pizza, but music, art and community as well. This is an interesting test because it takes our pizza out of that atmosphere, he said. However, Raye said he has never been nervous making pizza, and he doesnt expect to see that change any time soon, even with a majority of the schools in the conference participation. If there was any way I thought I could improve my pizza, I would have done it by now, he said. I think it can stand up. Dante Fowler, a 19-year-old UF telecommunication sophomore and outside linebacker for the Gators, said he has as much faith in Satchels as he does in the team. Theyre two hardworking companies that just want to get to the top and be the best at what they do, he said. If we win Im gonna throw a little party. Raye said hed try to bring home the title for himself and UF. If we win, he said, we win for the Gators.

Charlie Crist spoke to UF students Wednesday on Turlington Plaza about his support of the Reitz Union as an early voting center. CAMPUS EMILY JULSONAlligator Contributing WriterUFs Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts was ranked 20th overall in a national ranking of college campus theaters. The center was ranked in The 25 Most Amazing College Campus Theaters by the Best College Reviews this week. It was the only Florida school to make the list. The center hosts national and international artists from around the world as well as student productions. Its one of the largest college theaters in the nation, with seating for about 1,700 in the main hall and an additional 200 seats in the Black Box Theatre. Some other highlights in the review include the centers fountain and all-glass window exterior. Michael Blachly, the director of UF Performing Arts, attributed the centers value to its staff and audience. He said the center has an exceptional professional crew that is highly skilled in production and publicity. Our programs reach a broad, diverse audience, Blachly said. We have a strong base of audience support. Todd Taylor, the public relations associate for the UF Performing Arts, said the variety of multicultural performances attract a wide audience. Artists come from all corners of the globe, Taylor said. We have dancers coming in from India, orchestras coming in from Russia, and students are able to see these types of performances right on campus. However, Alejandra Nash, a 21-year-old UF marketing and event management junior and former intern at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, said the UF Cultural Plaza, where the center is located, has one main problem: parking. One time, there was an event at the Harn Museum and the Phillips Center at the same time, and there wasnt enough parking, even with the garage, Nash said.

Starting Feb. 27, Follett will run all stores formerly managed by the LIDS Sports Group, because the contract was discontinued. UFs contract with the bookstore will be a separate contract from the sports stores on campus. Mike Spiegler, senior associate athletics director, said Follett will sell all current inventories in the stores. We reached out to Follett since they were already here on campus, he said. They do a great job at the bookstore. Its a Follett, like LIDS Sports Group, will pay UF a percentage of what they sell from the merchandise. Nicole Neugebauer, a 19-year-old UF business freshman, said shes concerned the prices will be expensive like the UF Bookstore merchandise. The stuff in the bookstore is a little overpriced, she said. If theyre taking over, I wont be buying as much UF stuff on campus. But Lynne Vaughan, director of UF Bookstores, said prices will mostly remain the same. We are working to bring in new inventory for the stores as well, she said.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSSTARKE A man was executed Wednesday night for raping and killing a 9-year-old boy 18 years ago, a death that spurred the victims parents to press nationwide for and better handling of child abduction cases. Juan Carlos Chavez, 46, was pronounced dead at 8:17 p.m. Wednesday after a lethal injection at Florida State Prison, according to death chamber but did submit a statement laced with religious references in writing. Chavez abducted Jimmy Ryce at gunpoint after the boy got off a school bus on Sept. 11, 1995, in rural Miami-Dade County. Ryces parents turned the tragedys pain into a push for stronger U.S. laws regarding proved police procedures in missing child cases. Their foundation gave hundreds of free dogs to law enforcement agencies to aid in searches for children. The boys father, 70-year-old Don Ryce, witnessed the execution along with his son Ted, 37. They told reporters the execution closes a long, painful chapter and hopefully sends a powerful message to other would-be child abductors. Dont kill the child. Because if you do, people will not forget, they will not forgive. We will hunt you down, and we will put you to death, Ryce said.

LAUREN TRONCOSO Alligator Contributing WriterGotham isnt the only city with a soft spot for bats. Bat fanatics will be able to see the thousands of foraging, furry free-tails living in the UF Bat Barn without enduring the musky smell. By the end of the month, a camera inside the barn will be live streaming on the Florida Museum of Natural Historys website. Sarah Fazenbaker, the museums webmaster, said a camera was mounted inside the barn last week and is fully functional. However, she said there isnt a set date for when the stream will be online because it takes a little tinkering to get the power, Internet connectivity, camera angle and lighting right. Fazenbaker said there used to be a camera in the next-door Bat House, but it was shut off last year because the environment inside was too hostile for the equipment, and it made maintenance problematic. The barn is structured in a way that will keep the camera cleaner than it was in the Bat House, she said, and the equipment will hopefully last longer. Fazenbaker said the camera is Staff decided to install it for the terest in the nightly bat viewing. What I didnt know until we did this whole project was that they actually move around quite a bit during the day, she said. They actually something to look at if theres enough living in the barn. Candace McCaffery, the museums mammals collection manager, said bats are picky about where they live. It took years for the bats to warm up to the barn, she said, even though it was primed with bat feces to make it smell attractive to the animals. The Bat House was built to relocate the bats living in the stadiums and old buildings on campus. When the internal structure of the house collapsed in 2009 because of too many bats, it was remodeled, and the additional barn was built in 2010. I think were really fortunate, though, that it actually worked and that we have this big colony here, McCaffery said. Its great for us for some insect control, and its a great viewing thing for campus. The museum currently has a camera installed on an exterior pole, which is already streaming live on its website. Observers anywhere can watch about 300,000 bats emerge at dusk with just a click of a button. ate student Jared Baum, 22, said tures two or three times, and he said he thinks the new technology is a good idea.

If it hadnt been for the CPR equipment on site, the incident could have killed her. It can happen to anyone at anytime, Dunlap said. Now a 20-year-old UF advertising junior, Dunlap will speak cation at the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom on Saturday. The event will certify 800 people in American Heart Associations Adult CPR and Automated during three different sessions 9:30 a.m., noon and 2:30 p.m. It will be Gainesvilles largest CPR American Heart Association. There is a $5 cost to attend the event, said Clay Gibbons, director of sales and marketing for GatorCPR. Any money raised will be used to provide an AED to the community, he said. He said GatorCPR is trying to reduce the bystander effect by training people in CPR and making them feel comfortable with it. He said he hopes the event will and increase the survival rate of cardiac arrest, which is an estimated 7 percent in the state of Florida, he said. The goal of this event is to try to get people to take CPR class who would otherwise not take CPR class, Gibbons said. There will be 57 volunteer instructors at the event who will train participants on Adult CPR, saving people from choking and how to use the AED. Chrissy Hankin, a 19-year-old UF elementary education sophomore, said she is attending because it is a good opportunity for a low price. I have always wanted to get something that Im going to need.

With the failed attempts of the Taco Libre Party to qualify and the Students Party to organize, the Swamp Party is essentially running unopposed which some may say theyve been doing for years. But the domination is worse than ever. Facebook events encouraging people to vote Swamp tout acter-bottle stations. But dont be fooled. Those additions date back to before Swamps creation in Fall 2012. How is that possible? The Swamp Party is the Unite Party. Swamp rose out of Unites ashes after a series of unfortunate events forced the partys organizers to rebrand. discussing intimidation tactics to increase voter turnout. Sororities were implicated for giving members alcohol in exchange for votes and refusing to let pledges eat until they voted. Then, in Spring 2012, after football coach Will Muschamp endorsed Gator walk-on and Students Party VP candidate Jesse Schmitt, Unite Party volunteer and then-Senate president pro tempore Jason Tiemeier threw away 268 copies of the Alligator from bins at Weimer Hall. Soon after, Tj Villamil, who would later be elected Student Body president, appeared in a YouTube video criticizing the Alligator and falsely claiming it had refused SGs request that it cut expenses to help UF. (SG doesnt support the Alligator. Thats why its called The Independent Florida Alligator). That election, the Unite Partys president and VP beat the Students Party nominees by 114 votes. It was the highest voter turnout since 1983. It was clear something had to change. So Unite became Swamp. To keep voters from remembering Unites shady history, Swamp tried to disassociate itself, even for claiming Unite had been replaced by Swamp. Swamp maintained that only 10 candidates had been involved with Unite. If Swamp and Unite are so different, why are Swamp candidates on Facebook right now taking credit for Unite successes? To be fair, most of the Swamp candidates in next weeks elections never ran under Unite. Also, its undeniable that services is going to acknowledge Unites accomplishments, why wont it acknowledge Unites oversights? In any case, Swamp doesnt have a squeaky clean past, either. Last year, the Alligator published an email sent by Leah Miller, a liaison between the Swamp Party and its fraternity house representatives, which asked them to collect I Voted stickers and supply the party with a $250 check. It ended with a request for readers to DELETE THIS AFTER YOU GET THE INFORMATION!! WE CANT HAVE ANYTHING ON RECORD! whatever tactics: Sketchy, but do it!

Todays question: Do you hate Valentines Day?Lessons about love rise out of tragedyA bipolar man and reformed alcoholic kidnapped his son while his wife was at work one day. He didnt get too far, though. Driving home, his wife saw their car parked on the side of the road. In the passenger seat was their 2-year-old son. Underneath the drivers seat was a bottle of bourbon, empty. Finally waking him from an alcohol-induced slumber, she tersely told him to clean up his act and took her son to her mothers. Sometime later, the phone rang. He was on the other end a pay phone. He told her he could turn right, go home and continue attending Alcoholics Anonymous, or he could turn left and be gone from her life forever. Love supersedes reason. She told him to go home; they could work it out. He went home but never made it to another AA meeting. The last thing he knew was the taste of cold metal and Its been 19 years since my father killed himself. My mom still has the gun in her closet; Ive seen it. I never understood why she kept it but remain as unsure of how she Love supersedes reason. For a long time, I harbored hatred toward my coward father. With time, Ive realized he was no coward, and I have no hate left to give. In fact, his actions taught me everything I know about love. My mom lost her dad to cancer a week later. She lost her job not long after that. They tried to force her to work overnight, even though that was impossible for a single mother with a toddler. Even when she was losing so much, she still gave me everything. She bought a house in a nice area with good schools, she read to me every day and loved me more than I can fathom. She still does. Mom taught me love is giving. A couple of years went by, and my mom found a new man. He stuck around a while and moved in after a couple of years. By the time I was 7, I was calling him dad. My dad, not my father, taught me about being a man. He played catch with me. He taught me how was 7, he was calling me son. I was not a responsibility or burden or anyone elses. Dad taught me love is accepting. My dad wasnt to remain childless for long. My brother was born when I was 8 and a half. I didnt know what to do. Then, I realized he didnt either, so I went to work. I read to him, played with him and helped him learn to talk. As he got older, he got a little more annoying, as siblings do. Id get frustrated with his persistent insistence on playing with me 24 hours a day. I hated that I was stuck with chores he was too young to do. One day, it hit me. He read all the same books I did when I was his age and played the same games as me. He would steal my too-big-for-him clothes to look like me. I was his role model. That helped me look at who I was to make sure I was becoming the person I wanted to be and someone he could look up to at the same time. My brother taught me that love is teaching and learning. Rationality and evolution dictate humans to act in selftheir children, resulting in a lower quality of life for themselves. When you love someone, you wont stand outside a burning building while they burn. You go in and save them. Love supersedes reason. Justin Jones is a UF journalism senior.

Grab a cocktailRead how to spend your Friday night on page 10.Follow us on Twitter at @AlligatorAvenue. SAMANTHA BLENDAvenue WriterThongs. Sparkles. Lace. Strip. Tease. Art. Thats burlesque done by the Mischietroupe, which will host a singles auction Saturday in an effort to give back to the community. Made up of seven performers, the Madams make their own costumes, which they shimmy out of piece by piece until only a thong and pasties are left. The troupes assistant manager, whose stage name is Lolita Lopez, said a challenge of doing burlesque is that it is often thought of as just stripping. But she said she thinks of it as more of an art form. Its incredibly body-positive and feminist, she said. And I love it. I really love it. Lopez also said she likes the amount of freedom she has with her performances, which allows her to incorporate her classical ballet training into her performances. Another troupe member, whose stage name is Sally Sucre, said whats beautiful about burlesque is that there is a different story behind every act. I like being naked, she said. Its very liberating. But I like that its also art. On Saturday, the troupe will take a break from the stage to host its singles auction. The proceeds will go to organizations in the community, which Lopez said is a major source of support for the troupe. Bachelors and bachelorettes will be auctioned off on a date at the event. It will take place at 10:30 p.m. at The Backyard at Boca Fiesta & Palomino, at 232 SE First St. All the proceeds will go to the Civic Media Center, a local alternative library, and network that helps survivors of domestic violence, said Stephen Tierney, the troupes manager. If anyone 18 or older is interested in being auctioned off, he or she can sign up at The Backyard, he said. Those who sign up before the event will get in free before midnight, Lopez said. For everybody else, the cover is $5. People who sign up to be auctioned off will put down their names, turn-ons and turn-offs and if they would like men, women or both to bid on them. This is the Madams second singles auction, Tierney said. Last year the group raised more than $1,200 for the Lynnae Hottinger Foundation for Ovarian Cancer Research. Tierney isnt sure if any couples who met at the auction last year are still together, but he said people seemed happy with the pairings. Ive seen people get up there and kiss right when they get on stage, he said. Lopez compared the event to karaoke. It starts off a little slow, but as people drink more, everybody wants to join in. Lopez said if anyone doesnt feel a spark with his or her bidder, he or she can opt out of the date. Bid money wont be accepted, and the date doesnt have to happen. We dont want people feeling uncomfortable, but we do want people to broaden their horizons and meet new friends, she said.THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2014 WWW.ALLIGATOR.ORG/AVENUEAmber Riccinto / AlligatorA burlesque dancer, whose stage name is Stella OHare, practices for the groups Friday show, which will be held at the Atlantic, 15 N. Main St. Doors open at 10 p.m., and the show starts at 11:30 p.m. Tickets cost $5. The show is Valentines Daythemed, but performers have personalized their acts. Mischievous Madams to host singles auction after Valentines Day skin EMILY COCHRANEAvenue WriterHollywood is coming out, one small step at a time. As thousands watched the widely publicized marriage of same-sex couples during the 2014 Grammy award ceremony on Jan. 26, the same night TV viewers were introduced to DisDisney received mixed reactions to the brief appearance dropped off their daughter for a play date with the main character. The company has also received attention for the alleged inclusion of same-sex parents in its blockbuster movie FroI think it has to do with the increased mobilization of queer politics, where a queer family structure can be just as normal as heterosexual, said Justin Grant, a UF feminist and queer studies graduate assistant. Were seeing a translation in mainstream media where a queer family structure isnt necessarily risque or threatening. appeared on CBSs All in the Family in 1971, only recently have companies started and commercials. Foxs Glee saw the engagement of Kurt and Blaine, two gay teenagers. ABCs Emmy-winning Modern Family focuses on a gay couple and their adopted daughter, and Coca-Cola and Chevrolet have received attention for featuring same-sex families in their respective Super Bowl and Olympics commercials. I think that its great, that it shows that television is getting more diverse, said Liliana Bello, a 19-year-old UF chemical engineering freshman. Im honestly surprised that this hasnt happened sooner. Despite receiving support from Miley Cyrus, Harry Styles and fans of the show, Disney was attacked by conservative groups such as One Million Moms for pushing an agenda of controversial topics that children are far too young to comprehend. Five-year-old Mia Talerico, who plays Charlie on Disneys Good Luck Charlie, also received defaced pictures of herself and death threats on Instagram after the episode aired. Its unlikely that the couple will appear on the show again since the shows last episode airs Sunday, but many see this as I think were slowly starting to see Disney make that turn that other broadcasting companies are doing, Grant said. Within the next 10 to 15 years, I believe there will be a LGBT main character in a Disney movie or show.Actor recieved death threats after episode

A Great Big Worlds Say Something captivated hopeless romantics and troubled teens its vocals shaky but stern, its melody light but haunting. But if youre looking for the slow build and soft power that the chart-topper album Is There Anybody Out There? Whereas Say Something serves as a theme song for the broken, Is There Anybody Out There? is fast-paced and happy-go-lucky, stuffed with condescendingly clich verses about the stars, the sea and life getting better (they promise!). As I heard the album beginning to end, I tried to picture when I would listen to it on the bus? No. Studying? Nope. Its so cheesy, it probably only plays while couples cook Sunday breakfast toeggs and laughing while they do it. The two singers consistently alternate sometimes Ian Axels nerdyfolk voice will take lead, like in Say Something. Then Chad Vaccarino the guy you didnt even know was in the band rings in, his voice deeper, more boring. Neither of them have much range you can tell when they squeak at higher notes and squawk at lower ones. But theres a comfort in that. They arent the powerhouse pop group they never promised to be. Instead, the duos awkward harmony boasts a talk-singing Broadway vibe coupled with the hopefulness of a Santa Monica street band think fun. meets One Direction. The Everyone is Gay track, for instance, starts and ends with a bumpy back track that makes it feel childish. Even the lyrics made me roll my eyes If youre gay then youre gay If youre straight well thats great. This is only repeated in songs like I Really Want It with lines like Im not giving up and All you need is inside yourself. I tried hard to relate to Is There Anybody Out There? but the whole album felt like two dudes sat down and tried to write what they thought music should be instead of pouring out their personal experiences like Say Something suggested they would. The album is available for $9.99 on iTunes.A Great Big Worlds new album disappoints tunes Valentines Day is around the corner, and we know some of you will be sulking in front of the TV with a heart-shaped pizza.

SILVIA RUEDAAvenue Writer How you like your eggs? Fried or fertilized! responded the crowd. Yung Humma, Flynt Flossy and Whatchyamacallit of the independent record label Turquoise Jeep performed their YouTube hit, Fried or Fertilized, and several other songs for fans Tuesday night at High Dive. The label, known for its humorous sex-lathered lyrics and equally titillating YouTube videos, gave spectators a show to remember and sweat for. By the end of the show, we want you to be sweating just as much as we are, said Pretty Raheem, another artist on the label. And sweat they did. During the groups performance of Licky Sticky, single women were called to the stage to receive lap dances. Gabriel Allen, a 22-year-old Ocala resident, became an instant Jeep Rider as fans of the label call themselves when his friend showed him videos on YouTube. Allen said the label is all about good vibes and having fun. Yung Humma and Flynt Flossy performed what is perhaps the labels greatest hit, Lemme Smang It, which has almost 12 million views on YouTube. The audience went crazy, reciting lyrics like, Ima have you looking like a Wild Thornberry. Will Baldock, a 21-year-old UF microbiology senior, has been a Turquoise Jeep fan since his freshman year. I think their songs are really funny and provide a resound amount of entertainment, he said. Baldock said the concert was everything he hoped for and more. It blew my mind, he said. Yip Deceiver, a duo formed by Davey Pierce and Nicolas Dobby Dobbratz, formerly in the band of Montreal, opened for Turquoise Jeep. The duos energetic and pop-tastic sound had even those who werent familiar with them bopping along almost instantly. After their time in of Montreal, Pierce and Dobby formed Pierce said. Weve been making music ourselves for God knows how long and just kind of got tired of doing other peoples stuff, he said. Its good doing your own thing. Turquoise Jeep rocks High Dive with jams

Read the story online at ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer@adamDpincusTime heals all wounds, and the Gators are hoping several have been patched up since last season. A mass exodus to professional baseball left Florida searching for innings and at-bats. The departure of 69 percent of its home runs and 81 percent of its RBIs shifted Floridas focus to small ball on offense. Florida scored 107 fewer runs last season. It is no secret the little things at the plate caused the Gators issues. Florida had a 7-11 record in one-run and extrainning games a trend No. 23 Florida hopes to reverse when it opens its season against Maryland on Friday at 7. We lost a lot of one-run games (and) Zack Powers said. It all comes down to little details. Seventh-year coach Kevin OSullivan has harped on those little details since he arrived at Florida. There was more room for error in 2012 with a starting lineup professional leagues at some level. That caliber of veteran college baseball talent is few and far between. A lack of depth made its absence hurt even more. Now with a restocked freshman class and underclassmen who experienced the sting of a sub-.500 record, the Gators can move past a frustrating season. We had a tough time doing all of that little stuff, but that season is done Ryan Jones / Alligator StaffCasey Turgeon bats against Florida State during Floridas 4-1 loss on Mar. 12, 2013, at McKethan Stadium.

Johnson eventually returned to compete vault and uneven bars in NCAA postseason meets. But Johnson, the defending NCAA uneven bars champion, maintains she hasnt been overworking her fragile body even in practice. The coaches are very smart, Johnson said.

Opening the game, JU took the draw and progame. However, UF countered with a 7-0 run until 17:05 when JU took its second goal. By the end of the half, the Gators outshot the Dolphins 21-5 and held a 14-3 lead. For the game, juniors Shannon Gilroy and Nora Barry made big plays that resulted in a combined The big issue coming into Wednesdays match against Jacksonville was whether Florida could turn around a 24-12 loss on ground balls and an 18-11 loss on draw controls. Winning 16-10 on ground balls and 14-4 on 1) came out looking like a team that had already decided the Dolphins fate. Gilroy, who was the standout player of the night scoring seven points on eight shots on goal and winning six draw controls, credited the teams work in practice to the win against JU (02). Coach Amanda OLeary felt that Gilroy did a good job leading the team after the loss at UNC, but she also said that her effort on ground balls and draws made a big difference in overall game play.

Poyner registered an out against South Carolina in the College World Series two years ago.

Florida spent most of its time on offense against JU, putting little pressure on the defense that North Carolina eviscerated. OLeary said that even though the crowd did not get to see how the defense would play after the loss against UNC, she believes that if the team manages the game well and communicates defense should have no issue on Saturday. While Stevens and Gilroy put up a combined total of 10 points, Devon Schneider (four points) and Sam Darcangelo (three points) also bolstered Floridas offense. We knew we had the potential to be really good, Darcangelo said. We just need to work together like we have been, get ground balls, play hard on defense, 1-v-1 and then go hard on the cage every single time.

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2014 LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@landonwatnickAs teammate Dorian FinneySmith and Tennessee forward Jarnell Stokes battled for a rebound off a missed jumper, Patric Young put his body on the line late in Tuesday nights game. Taking a move out of Dennis Rodmans repertoire, Young bolted for the offensive board and dove headtonio Barton could come up with it. Before he slid out of bounds on the right baseline, the senior center gained possession and threw the ball to Kasey Hill as Florida wasted time on a fresh shot clock with a 61-55 lead and just more than a minute left in regulation. Youngs grit down the stretch helped No. 3 Florida shake its recent woes in Knoxville, Tenn., and knock off Tennessee 67-58. The full-out dive by Young, who had four fouls at the time, was perhaps the most impactful play of the game and one of his best in his career at Florida. To coach Billy Donovan, Youngs offensive rebound was the play of the year. He sold out, Donovan said. Two guys were in front of him. He ran past and made an incredible save and helped us come up with the loose basketball. It was an incredible play by him effort-wise with four fouls. What proved to be the gem of the game happened after a series of missed shots by the Gators. After point guard Scottie Wilbekin drove down the lane and came up empty after wasting 31 seconds of clock with 1:40 left, Tennessee forward Jeronne Maymon kept the ball in bounds by chucking it over his head. Young then came up with possession. With the shot clock about to expire, Young quickly pulled up for a jumper a shot he rarely takes on the elbow. The attempt clanked off the rim, and then the senior center chased for it to make his hustle play. In 23 minutes of action, Young coming on the offensive end. The seniors offensive rebounding success Tuesday night helped Florida outrebound a physical Tennessee team 39-32 and win the battle on the offensive glass 18-9. Jarnell and Maymon, theyre the best rebounders probably in our league, Young said. We knew we had to go in there and bleed and and scar and come up with some loose balls. That type of desperation was embodied by Youngs loose-ball dive. enough to crack SportsCenters Top 10, it proved to be the dagger in Tuesday nights contest.Youngs rebound ensures UF victoryMatthew Martyr / Alligator StaffPatric Young attempts a layup during Floridas 78-69 win against Alabama on Saturday in the OConnell Center.
