COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Michael Frazier II set a Florida record with 11 3-pointers to finish with a career-high 37 points and help the top-ranked Gators move a game from a perfect Southeastern Conference regular season with a 72-46 victory over South Carolina on Tuesday night.

Frazier kept the Gators (28-2, 17-0 SEC), who won their school-record 22nd straight, in the game when his teammates struggled in the opening half. He added some on-target icing to the victory when Florida took control with a 23-5 run midway through the second half.

Frazier broke the 28-year-old Florida mark of Joe Lawrence, who made nine 3s against California on Dec. 27, 1986.

Mindaugus Kacinas had 12 points to lead South Carolina (11-19, 4-13), which was coming off a win over Kentucky.

The Gators can become the first team besides Kentucky to finish undefeated in SEC play since Alabama went 14-0 in 1956.
