Barford also got help from the team's scoring leader on the season, guard Dusty Hannah, who had 20 points in the upset.
The comfortable and controlling win is positive sign for the Cats that got off to a rough start in SEC play.
But, suddenly, after hearing the next question, the first smile of the afternoon appeared on the coach's face. And the game was at Florida, so if SC could drop a game in February this would be the one to drop.
"That's a great point", White chuckled.
In a contest that remained close for much of Tuesday night, Florida held onto a single-digit lead against SC for much of the second half, as Sindarius Thornwell and the Gamecocks kept hanging around.
They're on pace to make their first NCAA Tournament since 2014. She finished with 15 points and three rebounds.
Federal Judge Blocks Texas From Cutting Off Medicaid Funding For Planned Parenthood
Other states, including Alabama and Louisiana, tried to kick Planned Parenthood out, but federal courts quashed those efforts. The organization says that none of that money went to abortions, but rather services like HIV and cancer screenings.
And yet, they may be the least confident they have been all season. Now they need to find a way to get back on track.
After losing Egbunu for the remainder of the season, White and his coaching staff had to scrambled to reinvent their team.
Thornwell scored a team-high 23 points for SC, which has now lost four of its past five.
But under pressure, Hayes shined. The junior forward recorded 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting, making some timely threes en route to 3-of-6 shooting from downtown, while adding six rebounds.
Though White said Saturday that Barry claimed he could return to the floor but was held out for precautionary reasons, this latest update casts doubt on his ability to play against one of only two SEC teams to hand the Gators a defeat this season.
"[It's] stressful", Hayes said.
Was it brother? Lover? Or crime gang? N. Korea rumors abound
North Korea killed Kim Jong Nam because he planned to create an exile government around defectors, says one rumor. Investigators were still searching for four male suspects who flew out of Malaysia the same day as the attack.
Hayes has been selected for a near impossible task.
Of course, the Gators did respond to that run, and the three-point lead the 'Cocks derived from it, with a 5-0 salvo punctuated by Allen punching a dunk on a fast break generated by his own steal.
And while Florida is confident that the 6-foot-9 Hayes, a former four-star recruit, can do numerous things that Egbunu did, Hayes doesn't have the luxury of being replaced by a bench player of equal skill.
"She just ignites us, she is playing some fantastic team basketball", Matthew Mitchell said.
White said early indications from Dave Werner is that Barry's ankle sprain is not as severe as his last ankle sprain, which held him out of a January 25 game against LSU. "But defensively, he was terrific". And freshman center Gorjok Gak is out after suffering a sprained foot last week in practice.
"It's not the same ankle (as the last injury)", White said "He'll be a game-time decision".
