No. 19 Georgia women beat Florida 63-43

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Senior Mackenzie Engram and freshman Gabby Connally each scored 12 points and No. 19 Georgia beat Florida 63-43 on Sunday.

Georgia (24-5, 12-4 Southeastern Conference), which was picked eighth in the SEC preseason poll after a 16-15 finish last season, has only lost to teams currently ranked in the Top 25.

Caliya Robinson added 11 points and Taja Cole 10 for Georgia, which leads the SEC in field-goal percentage defense and held Florida to 27.8 percent. Robinson, a junior, needs just four points to reach 1,000 career points.

Cole led a 13-2 first-quarter run with six points and two assists as Georgia led 18-10. It was 38-26 at halftime and Connally drained a 3-pointer just before the third-quarter horn for a 17-point lead.

Funda Nakkasoglu was the only Florida (11-18, 3-13) player in double figures with 10 points. She was 2 of 5 from distance for her 21st straight game with a 3-pointer.
