effort on the boards to defeat the LSU Tigers 88-46 Saturday night
in Gainesville, Fla.
Florida (18-6, 5-4 SEC) held LSU to one point over the first nine minutes
of the game, and only 18 in the first half. LSU (6-16, 1-7 SEC) shot
26% for the game and could not get enough opportunities for the SEC's
leading scorer, senior guard Cornelia Gayden.
Florida held Gayden to 4 of 14 from the floor and 12 total points, less
than half of her SEC-leading 25 ppg mark. The Lady Gators were paced by
Merlakia Jones' 10 of 17 shooting for 23 points. Freshman forward
Murriel Page added 21 points and 10 rebounds.
Next up for Florida is an out-of-conference game Thursday against Lynn.
