GAINESVILLE - A home run by Adam Davis in the 10th inning lifted Florida 3-2 over Vanderbilt on Sunday afternoon.

The Gators (31-12, 11-7 SEC) completed a sweep of the series in which all three baseball games were decided by a run. Florida went up by a run in the eighth on Ben Harrison's home run. Vanderbilt tied it with a home run by Jonathan Douillard with two outs in the ninth.

Starter Ryan Mullins gave up two runs in eight innings for the Commodores (27-13, 7-11) but did not factor in the decision.

MORE BASEBALL: Host Memphis swept a pair of seven-inning games with USF, using strong pitching to take Game 1 1-0 and timely hitting for a 7-2 victory in Game 2. The Tigers (20-16, 9-8 C-USA) and Bulls (26-15, 8-9) squeezed in the games after rainouts Friday and Saturday.

In Tallahassee, Micah Owings hit a two-run homer and Georgia Tech held off a late rally by Florida State (27-16, 6-6 ACC) to complete a three-game sweep with a 7-6 win. Owings' 13th home run of the season highlighted a four-run fourth inning. Georgia Tech (25-17, 7-5) tacked on two runs in the eighth to make it 7-2.

In Coral Gables, Tom Hagan and Matt Street had run-scoring singles in the ninth to lift Virginia 4-3 over Miami (30-9). Starter Joe Koshansky shut down the Hurricanes in the ninth to seal it. Koshansky gave up three runs on eight hits, striking out six and walking three for Virginia (35-9).

GOLF: Miami placed second in the Big East women's championship, 14 behind host Notre Dame (905).

SOCCER: A Nebraska standout was fatally shot at a party early Sunday morning, Lincoln police said. Jenna Cooper, 21, of Louisville, Ky., was shot in the throat. Police said two men were arguing, then a bullet struck Cooper after hitting one of the men, Nolan Jenkins, 22, in the head. Jenkins was in fair condition. Another 22-year-old was arrested. Cooper, a defender, was an All-Big 12 player in 2002 and was named to the U.S. under-21 national team in 2002 and '03.

SOFTBALL: Leigh Ann Ellis picked up her 33rd victory of the season, pitching seven innings, giving up four hits and striking out nine as South Florida (49-9, 17-4 C-USA) beat Houston (29-21, 8-10) 2-0. In the third inning, Seminole's Holly Groves got her nation-leading 72nd RBI with a double off the top of the leftfield fence. Largo's Carmela Liwag hit her fifth home run of the season in the fifth inning.
