Floor Toonders, Jordyn Merritt and Kiara Smith all scored 16 for the Gators (10-12, 3-11) and Nina Rickards added 14. They have lost four straight since leading scorer Lavender Briggs (19.5) was lost for the season with a foot injury.
Florida was not daunted by Georgia’s defense that allows 59.2 points on 36.6% shooting, but the Gators did have 19 turnovers that were turned into 22 points.
The Lady Bulldogs were efficient on offense, shooting 58.2%, highlighted by a 10-for-13 fourth quarter and 22-of-31 (71%) second half. Staiti was 13 of 21 and Caldwell 11 of 15 with both hitting 2 of 3 behind the arc.
