GAINSVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Caliya Robinson scored 10 of her 22 points in the fourth quarter when No. 21 Georgia made 11 of 13 free throws to rally for a 66-57 win over Florida on Sunday.
The Bulldogs (19-2, 7-1), who have won seven straight for their best start since 2009-10, trailed by 10 three minutes into the third quarter and by seven entering the fourth. Mackenzie Engram and Robinson combined for eight straight points to open the final period.
After the teams traded the lead a couple times, Maya Caldwell hit a 3-pointer for Georgia’s permanent lead at 49-46 with four minutes left. The Gators (10-12, 2-6) were within four with less than a minute to go but Georgia went 10 for 10 from the line to improve to 8-0 on the road, the best since its 1995 Final Four team started 11-0.
Florida, playing the second of eight games in nine against ranked teams, was led by Paulina Hersler with 19 points, tying her career high, and Funda Nakkasoglu with 18. The Gators have lost 10 straight against ranked teams.
