Women's Basketball Defeats San Francisco: Gators Roll Over Dons 91-68

The Florida women's basketball team had little trouble against San Francisco Wednesday night in the Gators' first true road game of the season. Florida would win 91-68 after jumping out to an 18-point halftime lead. With the victory, the Gators moved to 7-2, rebounding nicely after a tough loss to No. 11 Rutgers last Friday.

Florida was led by junior forward Jennifer George who had a career-high 24 points. George added 11 rebounds for her third double-double of the season and the seventh of her career. She would lead the Gators in both categories (senior center Azania Stewart also had 11 rebounds) despite playing only 23 minutes in the win.

Pushing their lead to double digits at the midpoint of the first half, head coach Amanda Butler was able to use her entire bench throughout the game. In fact, all 10 Gators in uniform scored and none played less than 13 minutes.

The win was Butler's 85th at Florida and the 125th of her career. She is in her fifth year with the Gators and seventh overall as a head coach.

Next up for Florida, the Gators travel to the University of the Pacific to face the 3-3 Tigers on Friday night. The game can be heard live on GatorZone.
