In second season, Peck has Gators in tourney
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Five seasons after she won it all at Purdue, then left the college game altogether, coach Carolyn Peck is back in the NCAA Tournament.
She's the coach at Florida now, rebuilding a Gators team that went 9-19 last season, but now finds itself seeded fifth in the Midwest Regional, with an opening game Saturday against New Mexico.
The game is in Albuquerque, N.M., the raucous home of the Lobos. A daunting task? Yes, but Peck has thrived under more difficult circumstances.
