Florida women's basketball has regular-season home finale tonight



Florida senior F Jennifer George will play her final regular-season home game tonight when the Gators host Arkansas at the O'Connell Center. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.

George is the Gators' lone senior.

The Gators and Razorbacks are currently tied for eighth in the overall SEC standings, each with 5-9 records in league play with both teams playing one more game before the SEC Tournament. postseason event.

“Arkansas and we are right there together in the conference standings and when you’re bunched up and there’s a pretty good clump of us, you’ve go to have those wins and gets those teams behind you so-to-speak,” UF head coach Amanda Butler said. “At the same time, it is about generating momentum and getting ready for the conference tournament. Winning is the best thing that you can do to affect your confidence going into that field. I think it’s the best conference tournament in the country.

Florida will attempt to carry some momentum from its last game, a 67-61 road win at Alabama on Sunday.  The Gators' game against 12 of the 13 other teams from the SEC has been decided by 10 points or less. The only one that has not been: this year’s Feb. 21 11-point home loss to Vanderbilt (68-57).
