    Gators up 41-34 at half. Watching at home and the PBP announcer on ESPNU is soooo bad, she gets all of the players names wrong and doesn't know what is going on in the game half the time...

    Gators are shooting the ball very well, but getting annihilated on the o-boards [Auburn with 17! in the 1st half], luckily Auburn has missed a ton of easy putbacks.

    Gators really clicking on offense in the 2nd half.

    Big run to go up 68-47 with 11+ to go.

    87-69 final. Cruised home after taking the big lead early in the 2nd half. Very nice to see a win by this margin against a decent SEC opponent, should give the team some nice confidence going into a few must-win games.

    I got to watch the second half.

    I was pleased to see them take a relatively close game (albeit to an inferior opponent) and run away with it.

    Not being able to watch them play much, its hard for me to tell how improved they are. It does seem like they play a lot more in control than in the past.

    Ole Butler is making me eat some crow. I doubt if this will continue but she might save her job and turn this team around. Then I will be wrong again.

    Saw em for the first time in a long time. Very impressive 3 pt shooting, but man are they undersized.

    Williams is improving her play. Game seemed to turn when we went man to man in the second half. Still have to shake my head at shot selection some times. We got bailed out on a lot of wild drives to the basket by Auburn fouls. Still, a win is a win.

    Glad they pulled it off. This is a very important stretch of winnable games for the team. Might want to watch out for Alabama though. They have back-to-back wins over Kentucky and Georgia.

    Florida has to win these games against the bottom-feeders of the SEC. Auburn is a bottom-feeder. Next up is a home game vs Bama. Another bad team, 10-10 overall and 1-6 on the road.

    Yeah, I guess if bottom-feeders include teams that were picked to finish 2 spots above us in conference and came into this game ranked ahead of us in RPI and the major computer rankings :rolleyes:

    Alabama is a less talented team than Auburn, but hopefully they have the team's full attention after pulling back-to-back upsets.
