GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Bruce Ellington scored 23 points,
including the final six for South Carolina, and the Gamecocks beat
Florida 72-69 on Saturday.
Ellington got pretty much any shot he wanted against Florida's
smaller guards. His biggest ones came late, when he made a driving
layup and four free throws to close it out in the final seconds.
Ellington was 8 of 15 shooting, including 3 of 7 from 3-point
range, and chipped in four rebounds and three assists.
Brian Richardson, Lakeem Jackson and Sam Muldrow added 10 points
apiece for the Gamecocks (11-5, 2-1 Southeastern Conference).
Muldrow hit a huge 3-pointer with 53 seconds remaining that put
South Carolina ahead 66-62, and Ellington took over from there.
Erving Walker led the Gators (13-4, 2-1) with 17 points. Patric
Young and Vernon Macklin added 12 apiece for Florida, which came up
short after rallying from a 10-point deficit in the second half.
