LSU gymnastics upsets #3 Florida
BATON ROUGE - It came down to the final performers for each team, and in the end it was the eighth-ranked LSU gymnastics team that rallied for the upset win over No. 3 Florida, 196.875-196.575, in front of 4,074 fans Friday night inside the Maravich Center.
With the raucous crowd cheering her on, Lloimincia Hall nailed her floor routine to score a 9.95 and give the Tigers the win after Florida's final performer Marissa King slipped off the beam, forcing the Gators to count a fall.
For LSU (2-0, 1-0 SEC), the win snaps an eight-meet losing streak against Florida dating back to 2009, and the victory increases LSU's record to 14-10 against Florida in the Maravich Center.
