No. 15 Florida had no problems on the road Monday night, cruising to an 86-60 win over Jacksonville.
It was Florida's 30th win in 35 tries against the Dolphins and the Gators improved to 9-0 all-time at Veterans Memorial Arena.
The Gators built a 21-7 lead to start the game and went up by 19 on a layup from Scottie Wilbekin to end the first half. Wilbekin finished with 12 points, seven assists and five rebounds. Casey Prather led Florida with 27 points on a scorching 11-13 performance from the field.
As a team, Florida shot 60 percent and 8-13 from three-point range. Five of those threes came from Michael Frazier II off the bench.
Jarvis Haywood had 16 for Jacksonville to lead the way, but the Dolphins' overall cold shooting was no match for the red-hot Gators. An 8-0 run early in the second half gave Florida even more breathing room as the Gators coasted over the final 16 minutes to the easy victory.
The competition gets tougher from here for Florida. The Gators host Florida State on Friday before heading up to Storrs to visit No. 13 Connecticut next Monday. Florida then faces No. 2 Kansas and No. 21 Memphis.
