Florida vs. Vanderbilt final score: Gators take care of business, clinch SEC title with easy win

Al Messerschmidt

Florida dispatched of Vanderbilt with ease, winning, 66-40, and clinching the regular season SEC title.

The Florida Gators had little trouble taking care of business on Senior Night, blowing away the Vanderbilt Commodores, 66-40, to clinch the SEC regular season title outright.

The Gators actually had a slow start to the game, managing only 22 points at the half. Fortunately, Vanderbilt was even worse, making a miserable 5 of 22 field goals in the first half.

By the second half, the Commodores appeared to be chipping away at the lead, but an 8-0 run quickly squashed those hopes as Florida used a barrage of three-pointers to bury their opponent. This game was over well before the final buzzer.

Florida shot 50% from the field, including an impressive 9 of 18 on three-pointers. Kenny Boynton, Patric Young and Erik Murphy all finished with double-digit points.

With the win, the Gators win only the fourth outright conference title in their history. They have a flawless resume and are heavy favorites to win the SEC tournament. A No. 1 NCAA seed is very much in reach.
