Preview: Florida Lacrosse Takes on Temple

The No.2 ranked Florida lacrosse team (10-1) plays host to Temple (8-2) in a Big East Conference showdown Saturday. The Gators are (1-0) in conference play after their 16-2 win over Vanderbilt last week. The Owls are opening up their Big East season against the Gators.

Senior Nicole Graziano has been the go-to playmaker down the stretch for the Gators. Graziano has scored 24 goals this season including five goals last weekend against Vanderbilt. Earlier in the week, the midfielder took in her fourth Big East Midfielder of the Week award.

Despite their big win last week, Florida Coach Amanda O’Leary noted an area where the Gators need to improve. Florida Coach Amanda O’Leary made a point of emphasis about winning 50-50’s. O’Leary says there are many players on the team that are equipped for face-offs, but they simply need to do a better job of getting the ball.

The match is set for Saturday, April 2, at noon in Dizney Stadium.
