    Brooks' barrage helps Gators handle Gamecocks, end skid

    Associated Press

    GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Sha Brooks scored 24 points, Marshae Dotson added 18 and No. 15 Florida snapped a three-game losing skid with an 82-66 victory against South Carolina on Sunday.

    Brooks was 5-of-7 from 3-point range and had six rebounds and eight assists. Her performance came on "senior day," the home finale for Brooks, Dotson and fellow seniors Aneika Henry and Kim Critton.

    The Gators (23-5, 9-4 Southeastern Conference) were 10-of-19 from 3-point range and 18-of-21 from the free-throw line.

    The Gamecocks (10-15, 2-10) were 3-of-23 from behind the arc, but cut a double-digit lead to 43-40 early in the second half thanks to several of their 20 offensive rebounds. Florida pulled away behind Brooks and Dotson.

    Lakeisha Sutton finished with 17 points for South Carolina, which lost for the 10th time in its last 12 games. Charenee Stephens added 12.
