The Florida women's basketball team utilized steady shooting and strong play on the glass to take down Samford, 81-56, Wednesday evening in the O'Connell Center.
The Gators' 81 points were their second-highest scoring total at home this season (83 vs. Charleston Southern on Dec. 20), as Florida closed its non-conference slate with its 10th victory of the year.
Five Gators scored in double figures on, led by junior forward Jennifer George. The reigning SEC Player of the Week notched her fifth consecutive double-double, scoring 10 points and with 13 boards, as Florida dominated the rebounding battle, 43-20. The 20 total rebounds were Samford's fewest this season.
The Gators tallied 19 second-chance points thanks to 21 offensive rebounds.
Florida next turns its attention to SEC action, playing host to sixth-ranked Kentucky on New Year's Day in the league opener for both teams.
