GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Chandler Parsons hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer, his second game-winning shot in three weeks, and Florida beat South Carolina 58-56 Saturday night.

Parsons finished with 10 points, 10 rebounds and four assists. He missed his first three 3s, but hit the only one that mattered.

Devan Downey led the Gamecocks (11-8, 2/3 Southeastern Conference) with 36 points, one shy of his career high. Downey spun out of a double team and hit a short jumper to put South Carolina ahead 56-55 with 5.1 seconds remaining.

Erving Walker dribbled to the foul line and hit Parsons with a perfect pass. Parsons got both feet under him and stroked the 3 from the left wing. He ran across the court and got mobbed by his teammates. A similar celebration unfolded Jan. 3 at North Carolina State, when Parsons hit a 75-footer at the buzzer to lift Florida (14-5, 3-2) to a 62-61 victory.
