Once again, without Casey Prather on the floor, Bill Donovan and the Florida Gators were able to walk away with a win, this time in a little easier fashion as they routed the Georgia Bulldogs at home, 72-50.
After escaping a close one this past weekend against the Arkansas Razorbacks in overtime, the Gators blew this one away right from the start, taking a commanding 36-16 lead into the locker room at halftime.
Georgia showed a little more fire in the second half, only being outscored by two points, but it wasn’t enough to shake the slow start.
In the absence of their leading scorer in Prather, the Gators were led in this one by Michael Frazier II, who dropped in 21 points on the evening and added in four rebounds and two assists.
Overall, the best performance may have come from Dorian Finney-Smith off the bench, who put in 14 points with four rebounds and five assists in the victory.
With the win, the Gators now improve their overall record to 14-2 on the season and 3-0 in the SEC, while the Bulldogs fall to 8-7 overall and 2-1 in the conference.
