Senior Jennifer George scored 17 points, junior Jaterra Bonds added 14 points and freshman Christin Mercer had 12 during a game that featured seven lead changes and a tied score 10 times, but it was Georgia that emerged with the 62-57 victory in the Stephen C. O'Connell Center Sunday afternoon. Florida next hosts Vanderbilt on Thursday at 7 p.m. With the loss, the Gators fall to 15-11, 4-8 SEC while the Bullgogs improve to 21-4, 9-3 SEC.

Lacrosse: Senior attack Caroline Chesterman and sophomore midfielder Shannon Gilroy each scored three goals apiece helping Florida to a 13-7 win over High Point on Sunday. With the win, the Gators improve to 3-0 for the first time in program history, marking the best start since the inaugural 2010 season. In 2010, UF went 2-0 before losing to North Carolina in the third game of the season. The Gators are back in action on Wednesday for their home opener against Stony Brook at 3:30 p.m. Women's tennis: UF dropped its first dual match, falling to Duke, 4-0, at the Sheffield Indoor Tennis Center in Durham, N.C. The loss halted the Gator's overall win streak at 25, dating back to 2012 when the team lost 5-2 at Stanford on Feb. 12. “We had plenty of chances to win the doubles point and we won four first sets in singles,” UF head coach Roland Thornqvist said. “Duke was the better team at the end of sets.”
