Florida Gators, Women’s basketball team at Harvard has been competitive for the first seven minutes of the game last night against the Florida Gators chomped the front just ahead of the Crimson and sailed to an 86-65 victory at the Center Stephen C. O’Connell in Gainesville, Florida

Although each team had four players in double figures, Florida (9-2) had an outburst of scoring from the bench, who collected 51 points. Departures for the Crimson (4-3) did most of his work if junior guard Brogan Berry chipped in 15 points off the bench, but they were not able to overcome a lead that reached up to 33 points.

“It was a very disappointing result for our team,” said Berry. “We really had worked hard in practice and try to improve on the little things … It does not quite show [yesterday] … We had a good push in the second half, but was too late for us to come back and win. ”

The Gators were coming off a 56-50 loss against a different enemy of the Ivy League, Brown on Sunday. In this game, Florida has its worst shooting display of the season (30.6 percent from the field), but the Gators rebounded well against Harvard, reaching 49.2 percent of their shots, a season-high.

The Crimson was once again in his erratic shooting, as he finished with a 39.3 field goal percentage. Harvard has alternated wins and losses for the last six games, and each time the Crimson lost, it was because of poor shooting.

“Unfortunately, we had a rollercoaster season so far,” said Berry. “We struggle to find consistency in our game, and it often comes with the shooting. If we do not make our plans, we leave [our rhythm] we get into a funk. I think we just need to change our state of mind of the offensive scoring to [be] more of a defensive team. ”

Florida won the ball pass to start the game, but it was Harvard who scored the first off a jumper in the second year before Victoria Lippert. Both teams traded baskets early, resulting in three lead changes. But two three pointers co-captain Christine Matera and two free throws by freshman guard Chris Clark helped the Crimson to take a 12-10 lead with 13:30 to left on the clock.

From here to Florida dominated, gradually increasing his lead as the first period progressed. The Gators’ Jennifer George scored on a layup, and the guard Brittany Shine hit two consecutive three pointers to make the score 24-17 with nine minutes to play. Shine led both teams with 16 points in the night, while George finished second on the team with 14 points.

Florida on a run of 17-7 over the final five minutes of the first half to keep Harvard at bay. The Crimson went into the locker room at halftime by 16 points, 43-27.

“Gradually, during the first half, we started to give them the ball,” Matera said. “We let them possess too many turnovers and offensive rebounds when our shots are not falling at the offensive, and our defense was not made for anybody.”

The Gators opened the second half by hitting a jumper, and then guard Jordan Jones stole the ball Lippert, which led to another score. Florida had 11 steals on the night, and Jordan was one of two players with three interceptions.

“During this game, we tried to go faster than we would our own pace,” said Berry. “In the game fast and frantic game, we did not take care of the ball … We do not have to change our game fast, and they took advantage of our lazy passes and got easy points.”

The wire is around 20 points for the first semester of the second period but it ballooned to 30 when Shine made a layup off a fast break with 9:43 to play in the game. Harvard senior Claire Wheeler made a jumper, but Florida Kayla Lewis responded with a trey. Wheeler then fouled Lanita Bartley, whose free throws increased the deficit to 33 points.

The Crimson spent the rest of the race to reduce gradually the head. A layup to break the fast by Berry cut the score to 82-64 with 2:14 on the clock, but its closer to Harvard to obtain. Several free throws extended the lead Gator’s, and the Crimson fell to their third defeat of the season.
