GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Early in the season, after a particularly troubling stretch of performances at the free-throw line, Florida coach Billy Donovan told his team to invest some practice time at the line.

The problem disappeared to the point that last Thursday night's free-throw performance (23-0f-32 or 71.9 percent) in a 74-66 win against South Carolina was considered a regression.

"Forty-eight hours ago against South Carolina we were 5-for-11 or 5-for-12, and then we end up in the second half making 17 straight shots," he recalled. "I think even earlier in the year we were shooting like 53, 54 percent from the free-throw line, and I know we're better [than that]."
