Women's Basketball: Florida Defeats Charleston Southern 83-59, Gators Advance To Holiday Classic Final

Led, as has become customary, by senior guard Jordan Jones, Florida defeated Charleston Southern 83-59 on Tuesday to advance to the finals of the Gator Holiday Classic. The Gators (8-3) were propelled to victory over the Buccaneers (6-4) by a 16-point run in the second half that shut the door on a Charleston Southern upset win.

Jones, who led all Gators with 20 points, was one of three Gators to score in double figures. Junior guard Jennifer George and sophomore guard Brittany Shine added 19 and 14, respectively, and George also added 10 rebounds, giving her three consecutive double-doubles. Perhaps the most positive note to come out of the win was Florida's ability to find the open shooter. The Gators had a season-high 22 assists on the 31 field goals they made.

Florida faces off against Duquesne (10-1) on Wednesday at 7:00 PM at the O'Connell Center in the Gator Holiday Classic final.
