COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Zam Fredrick's layup as time expired
lifted South Carolina to 70-69 victory over No. 24 Florida.

The Gamecocks (13-4, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) trailed 67-60
with less than three minutes left. Devan Downey began the comeback
with four straight foul shots and his 3-pointer with 26.5 seconds
left cut the lead to 69-67.

After Nick Calathes missed a foul shot, Fredrick had the chance
to tie the game as he went to the line with 4.7 seconds to go but
missed his second attempt.

Chandler Parsons had the chance to ice it at the line for
Florida with 3.3 seconds remaining. He, too, missed the foul shot.

Mike Holmes rebounded the miss, and threw a long pass to the
streaking Fredrick who laid the ball in as time expired.

The loss ended the 10-game win streak of Florida (16-3, 3-1).
