Nicky Kit A230

Florida senior left back Nicky Kit (left)

Kit delivered the game's only goal in the showdown at #19 South Carolina that was a head-to-head matchup to decide the Southeastern Conference regular-season title. With the first half about to tick away, the leftooted Kit struck a free kick from just outside the upper-right corner of the penal
ty area – with the perfectly-struck ball glancing high off the near-right post and carrying into the net for a goal at 44:58. On the other end of the field – while dealing with a spirited Senior Day crowd of 2,500-plus at SC's Stone Stadium – Kit helped limit South Carolina to seven total shots (only one on goal).

The big-game win helped keep Florida on track to be in contention for one of the top-10 seeds (or higher) in the upcoming NCAA Championship tournament.

The week-11 Primetime Performers of the Week include: eight forwards, four mifielders, two defenders and a pair of goalkeepers ... six seniors, five juniors, two sophomores and three freshmen ... five players who are California natives, three who claim hometowns in Colorado and one each from the home states of Alabama, Florida, Indiana, Maine, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas.

Selection for the CS360 weekly awards is based on any/all of the following "primetime" criteria (i.e. not solely based on raw stats):

• In general, preference is given based on the quality of the opponent and situational factors involved in the player's accomplishments.
• Must have been playing in a game involving a top-50 team from the CS360 Composite National Rankings (or a conference favorite/leader), or performed at a high level in a game that is key to the team's postseason qualification.
• Exhibited strong leadership and/or Involved in clutch performances, such as gamewinning goals, noteworthy comebacks, late scores, team leadership, etc.
• Overcame adversity or extreme circumstances (for the team and/or individual).

• Bonus consideration is given for key performances away from team's home field.
