Florida women’s basketball is on a roll as they earn themselves their third straight win in conference play.
Gators Women’s Basketball (13-5, 3-2 SEC)
Coming off an impressive win at home over the Auburn Tigers 68-63, the Gators went on the road to face the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Gators started off the first half of the match up against the Tide trading baskets and trailed by just two early 29-27.
