.TONIGHT

No. 12 Florida vs. South Carolina

When/where: 9, Stephen C. O'Connell Center, Gainesville

TV/radio: ESPN2; 620-AM

Records: South Carolina 9-11, 1-5 SEC; Florida 17-4, 5-1

Notable: The Gators will try to extend their home winning streak to 12 in the second game of a three-game homestand, their longest of the season. … This is the first repeat opponent for the Gators, who defeated South Carolina in Columbia on Jan. 14. … The Gators still have all five regular starters averaging in double figures, but junior guard and leading scorer Kenny Boynton is looking to rebound from a two-point effort against Mississippi State. Senior guard Erving Walker had just nine in that game.

    Well, that escalated quickly.

    One moment, the Bears were dinking and dunking their way down the field. The next, they were giving the ball away. In a six-minute stretch over the first and second quarters, they turned the ball over three times. Interception. Fumble. Fumble.
