Women's basketball suffers another loss



GAINESVILLE - The women's basketball team's woes continued Sunday with a 77-54 loss to No. 14 Georgia at the O'Connell Center.

The Gators (6-16, 0-7 SEC) have now lost nine consecutive games, 10 of their last 11. Georgia closed out the game by outscoring the Gators 14-2.

“For about 75 percent of the game, our team did a pretty good job,” Florida head coach Carolyn Peck said. “We had some crucial turnovers, and Georgia is a good enough team to capitalize on those. We actually out-rebounded Georgia (38-36). We bounced back after the South Carolina game and got back into the fight, which are things that were pleasing to me.”

Marshae Dotson had a game-high 20 points, her fifth 20-point effort in UF’s last nine outings; she also had six rebounds and three steals. Junior guard Depree Bowden added 12 points and 13 rebounds to collect the fifth double-double of her season and career.

Florida shot just 32.1 percent (17-of-53) in the game, including a 4-of-20 effort from the three-point arc, while Georgia sank 46.9 percent, including a 58.6 percent mark in the second half. The Bulldogs also capitalized on 23 Gator turnovers, converting them into 32 points.
