Vandy forward has career game vs. UF

NASHVILLE — Forward Hannah Tuomi had 16 of her career-high 26 points in the second half, leading Vanderbilt to a 71-60 victory over Florida on Wednesday night.

Tuomi made all 10 shots and had nine rebounds as the Commodores (20-8, 9-6 SEC) took sole possession of third place with one game left. Last season the forward suffered a season-ending injury before the regular-season finale.

"We were dominated by Hannah Tuomi in the paint," UF coach Amanda Butler said. "I'm really disappointed with our post defense and that we couldn't do a better job on an individual who generally doesn't have a scoring role for their team."

Jennifer George had 13 points for the Gators (14-14, 7-8).

TAMPA 82, FLA. SOUTHERN 65: Taja Green and Gianna Messina had 25 points each for the host Spartans (24-3, 14-2 Sunshine State Conference) in their regular-season finale.

ECKERD 69, SAINT LEO 56: Kati Rausberg had 20 points and tied a school record with her 63rd 3-pointer of the season to lead the host Tritons (10-14, 4-11 SSC) past the Lions (13-13, 6-9).
