Florida's Jennifer George, Sydney Moss selected to All-SEC teams



Florida senior F Jennifer George, who has been hampered by an injury the majority of the conference season, was named to the All-SEC Second Team and All-SEC Defensive Team, the league announced today.

Gators freshman Sydney Moss was selected to the All-SEC Freshman Team.

George, who is Florida's lone senior, dislocated her shoulder on Jan. 6 against LSU, and again in the first half of the Jan. 13 OT loss to Tennessee. Despite the injury, she has been the Gator leader for rebounding (8.1 rpg), blocked shots (45), steals (53) and double-doubles (9), while ranking second for scoring (11.9 ppg) and field goal percentage (48.9 percent).

During the season, George eclipsed the 1,200-scoring plateau for her career, is in the Gator’s top-10 all-time leaders for rebounds with 877, and ranks fourth in program history for blocked shots (180).

Entering the team’s opening round game in the SEC Tournament, George has played in 128 games, one shy of the all-time school record.

Moss lead the Gators in assists (3.9 apg), and is second on the team in rebounding (6.5 rpg) and steals (1.4 pg), third in scoring (10.2 ppg). She's had three double-doubles.

Among SEC freshmen entering the SEC Tournament, Moss ranks second for assists, third for rebounding and fourth for scoring. Moss has been the Gator’s game leader for assists 15 times, for rebounding eight times and scoring six times.
