The Lady Gamecocks (19-6, 8-4) rebounded from their humbling loss at Arkansas by besting Florida (16-9, 6-6) this evening at the Colonial Life Arena. Dawn Staley's squad came out angry from the opening tap and held a commanding ten point lead (43-33) at the end of the first frame. The Lady Gators stormed back in the second half, however, and knotted it up 54-54 at 6:32 before Gamecock senior G Markeshia Grant hit a big time three to take back the lead for good. It was dicey down to the last minute until USC senior G La'keisha Sutton hit a shot at :32 to extend the Garnet and Black's lead to 61-58; the Lady Gators missed two shots at the end and Sutton made a final free throw at :01 to seal a 62-58 win. Grant paced all scorers with 20 points (7-13 from the floor, 5-6 from the arc), along with 3 rebounds and 1 block.
