After experiencing a rough stretch earlier in the year, Florida is really starting to hit its stride as SEC play begins.
The Gators moved out to an early lead and never looked back. They held a nine-point advantage and expanded it early in the second half. As a team, they shot nearly 45 percent from the field and out-rebounded the Tigers, 49-34.
Kenny Boynton continued his fine season with a 20-point, seven-rebound performance. Despite battling a rib injury, Erik Murphy had 12 points and seven boards. Patric Young added an efficient 14 points and seven rebounds.
Next up for the Gators will be a road trip to take on the Texas A&M Aggies on Thursday night at 7 p.m. ET. LSU will look to pick up its first conference win, against South Carolina on Wednesday evening.
