    Ladies get some much deserved time to enjoy their win over UK. Hopefully they can back up that game with another solid performance.

    Arkie has a pretty record, but really hasn't played that tough of a schedule. After the Gator's last game, I'm confident they should be in this game.

    If your in Gville, go to the game and support the Gators!

    Arkansas and Florida are both receiving votes in the new AP poll (Arkansas would be ranked slightly higher with more votes). They also have a McD AA frosh in Jessica Jackson. We have to stop her and guard the 3. It will be another tough game. Playing at home helps. I really wish we could start getting larger crowds to make home court a bigger advantage. Home games at UK and UT are different animals with the large crowds. One reason those schools tend to sign the best recruits as well.

    Women's basketball has never, ever drawn big crowds with the exception of the UT games. Now they just bus in folk for the retirement home. I swear there is a blind woman in a wheelchair that they roll in for every game!

    Wish the AD would throw out some free ticket promos or something to entice people to come. This is a huge opportunity to build some positive momentum around the program.

    Arkansas is ranked #25 in the coaches poll. Historically we have done very well against them, but their 3-point shooting prowess, mostly from freshman we have not seen, has to be a huge concern considering we are by far worst in the SEC at 3-point defense. Guessing we'll play a lot more man defense than against UK.

    Our Sunday road opponent LSU is #12/13, so another tough week - let's keep it rolling ladies!

    The athletic department does need to do some things to help draw a few more fans. It won't happen overnight but winning over a few more fans a game helps. A win tonight and you could start seeing a little bit of media buzz around the team, considering where the so-called experts picked them to finish. We are in a tough stretch ... really interested to see how we respond especially after the huge win at UK. Having a nice home court advantage could help us win a few more games.

    I'll be heading to the O-Dome in a bit. I would give you in game updates but the piece of crap iPhone app keeps telling me my password is bad, which it is not, when I try to log in. So I will wait until after the game.

    24-24 at the half. Really ugly so far. Arkansas successfully turning the game into a half court snooze-fest and the Gators, in trying to speed the game up, are just turning it over like mad. Luckily Arkansas not shooting that well so far, but if the game continues like this, it's going to be hard to win.

    Definitely an ugly first half. Peoples is ice cold. They said on the broadcast that there was a nice crowd showing. Hopefully Amanda lights a fire under them and the shots start to fall in the second half. Williams has no fouls and no shot attempts. I hope we let her play extended time in the second half to get her going.

    43-34 Gators with 7 to go. Some good defense (inept Ark offense?) and individual plays from Bonds giving us some seperation.

    Gators seem to be doing better in the 2nd half.
    Around 6 min left, UF up by 9; 45-36

    Edit: If UF could do something about Adams and Jackson.... :-\

    Edit2: Arky in the bonus and cutting into the UF lead with FTs. 45-38 in favor of UF with 5 min to go. UF keeps missing their FTs and Arky is making theirs *sigh*

    If UF loses this game they can clearly point to their misses at the FT line. It's getting ugly!

    Edit: Also UF getting out-rebounded by 10....

    This one just has a bad feel to it. Hoping Gators can hang on...45-40 with Ark to the line after final media TO.
