GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Ashley Houts scored a career-high 25 points to help Georgia beat Florida 82-55 tonight, giving coach Andy Landers his 700th career win.

Houts scored 21 of her 25 points in the first half while senior Tasha Humphrey added 23 points in the win.

Landers became the eighth coach to reach the milestone at a four-year institution. He joins Tennessee's Pat Summitt and Texas' Jody Conradt as the only coaches to record 700 wins at one school.

Landers is now 700-218 in his 29th season at Georgia.

The Lady Bulldogs (16-3 overall, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) snapped a three-game road losing streak and won on an opponent's floor for just the second time in five tries this season.

The Gators (13-6, 2-2) had their seven-game home winning streak snapped. Florida has now lost 12 straight games to ranked opponents.

Brittaney Thomas was the only Gator in double figures, scoring 18 points off the bench.
