The Florida Gators take on the LSU Tigers on Sunday.
Competition of the Gators and Tigers
LSU women’s hoops have had an impressive season so far. They’re 22-4. However, the Gators are not far behind as they’re 20-6. Earlier this season, Florida actually defeated LSU on Jan. 23.
Thanks to 6’3 sophomore Jordyn Meritt, she led the Lady Gators to a 10-4 lead by the first timeout of the game.
The game was a tight race, but the Gators came out on top, taking the win by one point.
The question that remains in many Gator fans’ heads: Will Florida be able to take the W again?
Florida’s 2021-22 season seems to have the evidence to answer the question as yes.
