Backward-angle excitation functions have been measured for the C12 + F19 elastic and inelastic scattering between Ec.m.=7.4 and 24.4 MeV. Three prominent gross structures (18.0, 20.7, and 22.1 MeV) are observed. The corresponding back-angle elastic angular distributions can each be fitted by a PL,02(cosθ) function whose L value tracks about one unit above lgrazing.
