GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Darius Days scored 20 points about 25 miles from his hometown, Eric Gaines added 15 in his second start of the season and No. 12 LSU beat Florida 64-58. The Tigers won their first game without starting point guard Xavier Pinson, who sat out with a sprained knee. Gaines helped pick up the slack, scoring eight points in the second half and making 4 of 5 free throws down the stretch. The Gators lost for the sixth time in nine games and fell to 0-3 in league play for the first time since the 1980-81 season.
