Women's Basketball: Florida Defeats Duquesne 62-49, Gators Win Holiday Classic Title

The Florida women's basketball team was at it again Wednesday night, this time disposing of Duquesne 62-49. With the victory, the Gators claimed the Holiday Classic title and pushed their record to an impressive 9-3 in the process. The win also ended a program-record eight-game win streak the Dukes (10-2) were riding.

Florida was led by junior forward Jennifer George who posted her fourth consecutive double-double with 15 points and 13 rebounds. She was named the tournament's Most Valuable Performer and was joined on the All-Tournament Team by senior forward Jordan Jones and sophomore guard Jaterra Bonds. Jones scored 18 and Bonds added a season-high 16.

Head coach Amanda Butler didn't believe her Gators played a flawless game, but also said that performances such as this one indicate great basketball is just around the corner:

"It wasn’t the prettiest of ball games. In a sense that you always look at things and wish you would have done things better, but then you look at a win like this against a team like Duquesne and see that your best basketball is right ahead of you."

Florida now moves ahead to Samford. The Gators host the Bulldogs on Wednesday, December 28 at 7:00 PM. The game can be heard live on GatorVision.
