The No. 19 Florida Gators women’s basketball team has had a great season so far, as they stand with a 4-1 record. They are hoping to recover after a tough 73-68 defeat in their first loss of the season to Northwestern last week. The loss was largely due to Northwestern dominating them in the fourth quarter. The Northwestern Wildcats outscored the Gators 17-8 in the last quarter of the game, despite Florida’s 60-56 lead going into the fourth quarter.Freshman Sydney Searcy says the team is ready to bounce back from this disappointing loss.
