GAINESVILLE, FL -- Kenny Boynton and Mike Rosario scored 15 points apiece and No. 4 Florida dominated another Southeastern Conference opponent, drubbing South Carolina 75-36 Wednesday night.
The Gators, who won their ninth game in a row, led 33-10 at halftime and made their first five shots after the break. They opened a 31-point lead that seemingly couldn't get any more lopsided.
Then it did.
Florida (17-2, 7-0 SEC) pulled ahead 55-15 on Scottie Wilbekin's floater in the lane with 12:32 remaining, sending the happy home crowd to the exits even earlier than usual this season.
The Gamecocks (12-8, 2-5), meanwhile, seemed dazed on the floor and the bench.
Michael Carrera led South Carolina with 13 points and nine rebounds. None of his teammates reached double figures.
The Gators have enjoyed seven blowouts in as many conference games. They won the first six by an average of 26.5 points. This one made those seem like nail-biters.
