It has been a bit of a rough season for the Florida Gators women ’ s basketball squad, who lost their first five Southeastern Conference matchups this season before finally snapping the streak last Sunday against the Auburn Tigers. However, despite the lack of wins in league play, UF has one of the most potent scoring weapons in the conference this season. Lavender Briggs is her name and sinking shots is her game.

As a freshman, Briggs led the team in scoring average with 15 points per game. This was the highest-scoring average by a freshman since 1991 and the second-highest by a freshman in Gator women ’ s basketball history. Additionally, Briggs continued to pile on the accomplishments earning SEC All-Freshman Team honors. Briggs established herself as an integral member of the Florida offense in her freshman campaign. Her first season gave her time to grow and step into a leadership role in her sophomore season.

It was announced on Jan. 7 that Briggs would miss the remainder of the season with a stress fracture in her left shin, and she decided to enter the transfer portal on Jan. 13.

- Guard Lavender Briggs , the Florida Gators' leading scorer and rebounder, will miss the remainder of the basketball season because of a stress fracture in her left shin. Interim coach Kelly Rae Finley made the announcement Friday, saying she is "saddened for Lavender after seeing all the work she put in "She is obviously a key component for our team and we will miss what she brings to the court," Finley said. "We want her to do what' s best in both the short and long term, not only for her basketball career but for her quality of life." Briggs averaged 15.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.2 steals over

Briggs had a breakout sophomore season for the Gators in 2020-21, scoring 19.7 points per game en route to All-SEC Second Team honors. She became the first Florida player in five seasons to earn those accolades. Briggs — who missed the end of her sophomore campaign with a foot injury — has seen her three-point percentage fall more than eight percent from her freshman year, but she still brings proven scoring ability to College Park.

There was speculation that this move may have been coming, as Briggs was seen at Friday’s Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics contest with current Maryland sophomore forward/guard Angel Reese. Seemingly, that speculation has come to fruition with Briggs’ pledge to head coach Brenda Frese.

Along with top-100 high school recruits Mila Reynolds and Ava Sciolla, Briggs will join the Terps for the 2022-23 season. It is unclear when exactly Briggs will be cleared to play again, but she certainly brings more offense to a program that is full of it.
