BATON ROUGE - After making a Sweet 16 run last year with only seven players available, at times, the Lady Tiger basketball team is relieved to see reliable depth finally back on the bench in 2014.

""This year having the depth is amazing," said senior forward Theresa Plaisance. "I feel like we have the best bench in the country, where we could have seven or eight players fighting for a starting spot on any given night."

LSU relied on a 11-man rotation to down a Florida team that hadn't lost since November.

The Lady Tiger bench logged 66 minutes, some of which in a key stretch in the second half to shut the door on Florida.

"It's been a plus," Nikki Caldwell told members of the media Tuesday. "Especially with a long season ahead of us, and you can't just key in on one player on our team."

Much of that 'long' season continues with back-to-back games on the road in SEC play(Thursday at Missouri, Sunday at #24 Vanderbilt).
