The No. 12 Florida Gators will host the struggling South Carolina Gamecocks on Thursday night in search of yet another win in the SEC. The Gators currently boast a 5-1 record in conference play to go with their 17-4 overall record. The Gamecocks, meanwhile, are 9-11 overall and only 1-5 in the SEC.
A win tonight would make six in a row for Florida, who haven't faltered since dropping their conference opener to the Tennessee Volunteers on January 7. The Gators are most recently coming off a decisive win over the No. 22 Mississippi St. Rebels and are looking to keep things rolling. The Gamecocks will have their hands full on Thursday, as they match up against a balanced team that likes to pass the ball and put up points from many different shooters.
Thursday's game with tip off at 9:00 PM ET at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center in Gainesville. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN2.
