Men's basketball preview: Florida Gators vs. South Carolina

Florida vs. South Carolina

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

TV/radio: ESPN, ESPNU; 1250-AM

Records: South Carolina 16-4, 5-2 SEC; UF 18-4, 5-2

Notable: This is a rematch of a game two weeks ago that South Carolina won at the buzzer after Gators F Chandler Parsons missed a late free throw. … The Gators and Gamecocks are in a three-way tie for first in the SEC East. … South Carolina is on a four-game winning streak, including a win at Kentucky on Saturday. "When you've got a team that's winning, confidence gets raised, belief gets raised and a commitment to what you're doing gets raised, and they definitely have that," UF coach Billy Donovan said. "They go into Rupp and win; they beat us at home in a close game. They've gotten some quality wins, and they've battled in every game."
