Florida head coach Mary Wise talked with the media as part of UF’s All Sports Press Conference on Monday.


No. 11 Florida has a four-match lead in the SEC standings entering this week’s action, as the Gators play host to Georgia and SEC preseason favorite Tennessee. Florida faces the Georgia Bulldogs on Sun Sports (N. Florida) and FS Florida (S. Florida) at 7 p.m. ET on Friday evening before the Gators’ showdown with the 2011 SEC Champion Lady Vols on Sunday afternoon. The weekend finale will air live on CSS at 2 p.m. ET.


Last week, the Gators dropped a three-setter to then-No. 12 Florida State on Wednesday evening. Florida was led by freshman outside hitter Živa Recek (Kočevje, Slovenia) who registered her fourth double-double of 2012 (16 kills, 15 digs), tying her career high in digs. On Friday, senior right-side hitter Tangerine Wiggs (Seattle, Wash.) set a new Florida program record with her .929 hitting percentage (13-0-14), besting the .923 hitting clip by Benavia Jenkins in the 2002 NCAA Tournament (12/6/02 vs. UCF).
