Downey Rolls Ankle:Will Play vs. Florida
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina point guard Devan Downey rolled his ankle during a recent practice, but is expected to play against Florida. Downey was kept out of practice Tuesday and wore a special boot as a precaution. The Gamecocks face Florida on Wednesday. Downey is averaging 30.9 points in the Gamecocks’ eight Southeastern Conference games and scored 36 in a 58-56 loss to the Gators last month. The senior has had to carry much of the load for South Carolina after the team lost Dominique Archie with a knee injury and Mike Holmes because of violations of team rules early in the season.
