    GATORS-SEMINOLES SET FOR MIDWEEK RIVALRY MATCH

    The Gators dropped their last contest to the 17th-ranked Baylor Bears on Saturday, falling in three sets. T’ara Ceasar led the way offensively for Florida, recording 19 kills on the night – tying her season-best mark. Thayer Hall pitched in eight kills of her own, while Marlie Monserez dished out 34 assists in the three-setter. Florida recorded five blocks in the match, led by a four-block performance from Lauren Dooley. Elli McKissock and Ceasar paced the backcourt defense, with each recording 10 digs on the night. Ceasar’s 10 digs secured her second double-double of the year. Monserez and Hall pitched in five digs apiece as well.

    Gators in the Polls


    After dropping two matches to the then-No.17 Baylor Bears, the Gators moved to No. 14 in this week’s poll. Three SEC teams are ranked in the Top-25: Kentucky (No. 8), Florida (No. 14), Tennessee (No. 22). South Carolina (32) and Ole Miss (14) are receiving votes.

    Among the Elite

    Mary Wise is one of two coaches to have been named AVCA Coach of the Year at least three times in their career (Russ Rose, Penn State, five times). Since Wise took over the program in 1991, no other team in the nation has won more matches, with the Gators sitting at 902. Penn State has also won 902, with the next closest being Nebraska at 863. Florida sits third all-time in program wins since 1984 with 1,058. That trails only Penn State and Nebraska for the
    most in the nation.

    Trailed big thru entire 3rd set, as much as 10 down before losing 25-19. Thayer Hall is non existent, 1 kill vs 2 attack errors.
    Serving differential massive, no shock there

    Something isn’t right internally. Hope whatever it is gets sorted quickly. Can’t even remember a three match losing streak under mary.

    Be careful Buck, you will be called a hater if you question Mary. I was thinking the same thing. Both used to dominate the state and SEC. Not so much anymore
