Florida Gators Women's Basketball TicketsThe Florida Gators women's basketball team is coming off a season of great trials that has led to exceptional growth for the club. The team was young—only two players returned for the 2018-2019 season, and just one of those was a senior, Funda Nakkasoglu. Nakkasoglu would average 16.8 points per game and would end the season as a top three-pointer in the SEC. Nakkasoglu would also score over 2,000 points in her last year. Although the only senior on the team, she wasn't the sole playmaker during the 2018-2019 season. Emanuely De Oliveira, a freshman that season, ended the year with an average of 3.8 points per game and 2.5 rebounds. She also garnered a .284 three-point range shooting percentage. Ariel Johnson, also a freshman for the 2018-2019 season, racked up a 4.9 point-per-game average and posted 2.3 rebounds. She ended up second on the team in three-pointers with 38.
