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.
