Gators continue to move up in polls

Florida used a home win over South Carolina and a road win over Arkansas to continue its ascent up the college basketball polls. The Gators moved up the No. 7 in the Associated Press Poll and the USA Today Coaches' Poll.

The week started for Florida with a 74-58 win over South Carolina. The Gators were led by 18 points from Scottie Wilbekin and 13 points from Casey Prather and Patric Young. Prather woke up the next morning with knee soreness and was ruled out for the trip to Arkansas with a bone bruise on the knee.

The Gators fought through a short roster in Fayetteville to snap the Razorbacks' 25-game home winning streak. Scottie Wilbekin tied the game at the end of regulation before Florida ran away with the game early in the overtime period.

Florida will continue Southeastern Conference play by hosting Georgia on Tuesday at 7 p.m. Prather will not play against the Bulldogs.
