December 31, 1997

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ Murriel Page scored 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds _ including the 1,000th of her career _ to lead No. 12 Florida over Hampton 92-55 Tuesday.

Page, an All-American, also scored her 1,500th point during the game and became just the fourth Florida women’s player to reach the 1,000 mark for both points and rebounds.

Florida’s Tiffany Travis scored 22 points to tie her career high and lead four Gators in double figures.

The game was never close as Florida (9-3) opened up a 45-24 halftime lead and led by as many as 48 points in the game.

Daniella Dawson led Hampton (3-4) with 19 points. Nisha Wilson added 15 points and eight rebounds for the Pirates.

Hampton shot just 25 percent from the field.

The double-double was Page’s 10th this season and the 49th of her career.

``I just love to crash the boards,″ Page said. ``That’s the very first and last thing I work on every day I’m on the court. Getting a rebound is what fires me up on the basketball court.″
