COLUMBIA, S.C. — Michael Frazier II set a Florida record with 11 3-pointers on his way to a career-high 37 points, leading the top-ranked Gators to a 72-46 victory against South Carolina on Tuesday night.
Florida (28-2, 17-0) has won a school-record 22 straight games to move within one win of a perfect Southeastern Conference regular season.
Frazier kept the Gators in the game when his teammates struggled in the opening half. 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 for South Carolina (11-19, 4-13), which was coming off a win over Kentucky.
Frazier blew past his old career best of 21 points set earlier this season against Texas A&M. He was 11-of-18 from 3-point range while the rest of the Gators were 0-of-13.
No other Florida player scored in double digits.
