Recap: Florida vs. South Carolina

Gainesville, FL (Sports Network) - Mike Rosario and Kenny Boynton each netted 15 points and Patric Young added eight points and eight rebounds, as fourth- ranked Florida throttled South Carolina, 75-36 Wednesday at Stephen C. O'Connell Center.

Freshman Michael Frazier nailed four 3-pointers for 12 points and pulled down seven rebounds for the Gators (17-2, 7-0 SEC) who have won nine straight, all coming by 17 points or more.

Michael Carrera was the only South Carolina player in double-figures with 13 points on 6-of-9 shooting from the floor for the Gamecocks (12-8, 2-5), who managed just 10 points in the first half after shooting just 3-of-21.

"They did the same thing they've done to every opponent this year," South Carolina coach Frank Martin said of the Gators. "They're rock solid; they're sound."

The Gators leaped out on a 26-6 surge to open the contest, and as the lead, and offense strengthened, Florida entered the break up, 33-10, behind 47.8 percent shooting.

Little changed in the second half, as midway through the Gators upped their advantage to 59-20, after Casey Prather's layup with 10:08 still remaining to play.

It was another easy conference win for coach Billy Donovan's squad, which entered the contest with an average margin of victory of 26.5 points in six SEC matchups.

"We want to make teams uncomfortable," Rosario said. "We are just doing everything that coach wants us to do. Being aggressive on the defensive end and just taking care of the ball. Everyone is doing their job and it's showing. There's just positive energy throughout this whole team right now."
