GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jennifer George finished with 15 points to pace Florida, and the Gators used an 8-3 run in the game's final 2:47 to upset No. 18 Georgia 61-57 on Sunday.

It was Bartley who finished it off for Florida, sinking both her foul shots with 1 second left for the final margin. That capped the late Gators' spree, which opened with a jumper from George. The Lady Bulldogs missed three shots and turned the ball over once during the Gators' game-winning run.

The Gators won the battle of the boards 42-32.
