Tennessee at Florida final score: Gators improve home win streak to 26 with 67-41 win over Vols


The sixth-ranked Florida Gators extended their home winning streak to 26 games on Saturday afternoon as they easily handled the Tennessee Volunteers in an SEC contest, 67-41.

Florida took a 26-19 lead into the first half and never looked back from there as they outscored the Vols by an overwhelming 41-22 margin to cruise to the victory.

Four Gator starters finished with double digits in points in this one, led by guard Michael Frazier II who dropped in 17 points and added in four rebounds in the win.

Scottie Wilbekin (13), Casey Prather (12), and Patric Young (10) were the three others.

In the loss, Tennesse got a tremendous performance from forward Jarnell Stokes who finished with the double-double, putting in 16 points while adding in 10 rebounds.

The Gators were just too much on the afternoon as they continue to cruise through 2014. Billy Donovan’s team improved their overall record to 17-2 on the season and have yet to lose a game in the Southeastern Conference.

With the win, they’ve now won 11 games in a row and will look to improve that streak to 12 games when they head on the road Thursday night to take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
