GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Scottie Wilbekin scored 17 points before getting helped to the locker room with a sprained right ankle, and No. 10 Florida opened Southeastern Conference play with a 74-58 victory against South Carolina on Wednesday night.


Casey Prather and Patric Young added 13 points apiece for the Gators, (12-2, 1-0) who won their sixth straight and tied a school record by winning their 24th consecutive home game.


A fast start and strong finish were keys to the latest victory in the O'Connell Center.


But Wilbekin's injury was all that mattered afterward. The senior point guard badly sprained the same ankle Dec. 2 against Connecticut. He entered the game averaging 11.8 points and 4.0 assists.
