After one half in Gainesville, the Florida Gators lead the South Carolina Gamecocks 37-28. The Gators hit six of 15 attempts from behind the arc, and jumped out to an early double digit lead off the three-ball. Kenny Boynton and Bradley Beal paced the Gators over the first twenty minutes. Boynton led all scorers with 11 points and hit three of four from downtown. Beal added ten points and grabbed seven boards, as the freshman phenom was the most active and dominant player on the floor. As a team, the Gators have outrebounded the Gamecocks by double digits already.
South Carolina went a run late to cut it to a nine-point game but Florida seemed in control for much of the first half. The Gators are looking to improve to 6-1 in the conference and win their sixth game in a row.
