Women: Peck hits the century mark in Gators' win
Published November 19, 2005
SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. - After seeing her team cruise through its first two exhibition games, Gators coach Carolyn Peck wasn't as concerned with reaching a coaching milestone as she was with having her team start strong.
She needn't have worried about either, as the Gators' 83-57 win over St. Francis (N.Y.) gave Peck her 100th career win in their 11th opening day win in 12 years. Eight of nine Gators who played scored, and five finished with 13 or more.
"The most important thing was that we started the season off with a win," Peck said. "I didn't want our team to have any false expectations."
Florida held the Terriers to 33.3 percent shooting for the half and 40.7 percent for the game. The Gators also forced 26 turnovers. The Gators advance to the second round of the Seton Hall Classic to face tournament host Seton Hall at 5 p.m. today.
FLORIDA STATE 82, GEORGIA SOUTHERN 57: The host Seminoles led by 21 or more for the final 14:58. The Seminole defense recorded 14 steals and six blocks and forced 25 Eagle turnovers.
