Men's college basketball preview: Florida Gators at South Carolina Gamecocks


Florida at South Carolina

When/where: 8; Colonial Center, Columbia, S.C.

TV/radio: Ch. 38; 620-AM

Records: Florida 17-6, 6-3 SEC; South Carolina 13-9, 4-4

Notable: The Gators have started 6-3 in the SEC for the third straight year, but the previous two ended with late-season slides and NIT berths. … Florida has relied on balanced scoring, with every starter averaging in double figures. … The Gators have won the past two meetings against the Gamecocks and 20 of the past 24 in the series, but coach Billy Donovan expects the game to "come down to the wire. We've had some challenging games for both us and South Carolina in this series the last few years." … Gamecocks G Devan Downey rolled his ankle during a recent practice but is expected to play.
