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.
