What Florida has to do: The road to the title won't be easy for the Gators. Florida defeated its opening opponent, Arkansas, during the season, but if the Gators advance they face top-seeded Tennessee. Florida's lone senior, Jennifer George, has been hampered the entire conference season with shoulder injuries. George and Jaterra Bonds are the only players who know what to expect in this atmosphere (the Gators have six freshmen).
