GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Michael Frazier II scored 17 points, one of six Florida players in double figures, and the seventh-ranked Gators routed Marquette 82-49 Thursday night, November 29th in the SEC-Big East Challenge.

Florida took control midway through the first half, building a double-digit lead thanks to Frazier’s hot hand and solid defense, and never let up.

The Gators kept things rolling after the break, opening up a 23-point lead on Will Yeguete’s layup.

And get this: the Gators (6-0) stayed unbeaten without much help from Kenny Boynton. The team’s leading scorer missed his first six shots and was scoreless until hitting a jumper with 16:34 remaining.

Boynton finished with six points on 2-of-11 shooting. Yeguete (11 points), Casey Prather (11), Mike Rosario (11), Pat Young (10) and Erik Murphy (10) all scored in double digits.

Vander Blue led Marquette (5-2) with 20 points, the team’s only player in double figures.
