Arkansas came into Saturday's game against Florida with a spotless 17-0 record in Fayetteville in the 2011-12 season, and left it as the victim of a 98-68 mauling at the teeth of the Gators.
Erving Walker led Florida with a career high 31 points, and the Gators also got 25 points from Kenny Boynton and 21 points and nine rebounds from Brad Beal in a victory that doubled as just their fourth road win and their biggest win over an SEC foe this year.
Florida got all but four of its points from its five starters — Patric Young and Erik Murphy combined for 17 points in the frontcourt — but Will Yeguete, returning to action after a concussion against Tennessee, had 11 rebounds off the bench. The Gators roared out to a 53-27 halftime lead, buoyed by nine threes in the first half, and cruised in the second.
Arkansas' B.J. Young matched Walker's 31 points, but the only other Razorback in double figures was Devonta Allen, who had 11. And Arkansas sent Florida to the line 34 times with 27 fouls and was outrebounded 38-21.
