GAINESVILLE, Fla. - The LSU Women’s Basketball team fell Sunday in Gainesville to Florida, 73-72, in Exactech Arena as Florida won its fifth game in a row. “It was a game where they started out tougher, more physical guarding us,” said LSU Head Coach Kim Mulkey. “We hung in there.

Coach Kim Mulkey's 650th career win will have to wait for another game as LSU women's basketball was upset against Florida in a 73-72 loss Sunday at the Extratech Arena in Gainesville, Florida.

In A Season Of Surprises, Gators Pull Off Perhaps Biggest Yet

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — It didn't matter that the final shot of the game, a 3-pointer at the buzzer by LSU star guard Khayla Pointer, dropped through the net and counted. It didn't matter that Tigers coach Kim Mulkey, a longtime headliner in women's college basketball, stepped onto the court Sunday afternoon at Exactech Arena/O'Connell Center with 635 more career victories than Gators interim head coach Kelly Rae Finley.
