Florida loses top scorer Kiki Smith to season-ending injury – JWS

The Chiara Smith season at 23 Florida ended due to an injury, guards said on Twitter on Friday.

Smith was helped from the floor when the Gators defeated Vanderbilt in a come-from-behind victory at the SEC tournament on Thursday. In the fourth quarter, after contact, he fell awkwardly and looked like a right knee injury.

“Unfortunately my time on the Gator’s court is over while I’ve been fighting today and in the weeks of post-season play,” Smith writes.

Florida struggled without Smith on Friday and fell to Olemis 60-70 in the quarterfinals of the SEC tournament.

Smith led Florida with 14.6 points, 4.6 assists and 2.4 steals per game in 30 starts this season. Florida (20-9) is in its best season since 2015-16 under interim head coach Kelly Rae Finley.
