Florida forced South Carolina into a season-high 26 turnovers, leading to 27 Gator points as UF snapped a six-game losing skid to the Gamecocks...The victory extended the Gators' SEC winning streak to three games, UF's longest since January of 1996, and propelled Florida into a first-place tie in the SEC East...The 17-point win was Florida's biggest SEC road victory since February 9, 1994, (74-55, Ole Miss) and allowed the Gators to join Kentucky as the only conference team to have won at South Carolina in nearly four years...Florida's defense limited the Gamecocks to eight first-half field goals as the Gators built a 10-point advantage at the half...At 12-2, the Gators became only the third UF squad to win 12 of its first 14...Mike Miller tallied double-figure points for the 10th consecutive game, and Teddy Dupay nailed a three-pointer for the 14th game in-a-row.
