Filed under: South Carolina Football, W. Basketball — South Carolina Gamecocks News -- www.gamecocksonline.com @ 9:00 pm February 11, 2018
A'ja Wilson scored 22 points and No. 7 South Carolina used a big run spanning the half to beat Florida 64-57 on Sunday.

Not coincidentally, that's when the Gators (10-15, 2-10) made a run to take a 10-point lead.
