Florida Slams the 'Dores

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Chandler Parsons hit seven 3-pointers,
including his first five, and finished with a career-high 27 points
as No. 24 Florida routed Vanderbilt 94-69 on Sunday.

Florida (17-3, 4-1 SEC) won for the 11th time in 12 games with the lone loss coming on a buzzer-beater at South Carolina on Wednesday night. The Gators more than bounced back by hitting a season-best 15 3-pointers, with Parsons hitting seven of eight.

Vanderbilt (12-7, 1-4) lost its third straight and fourth in five games after failing to hold onto a six-point margin in the opening minutes.

Erving Walker also scored a career-high 17 points for Florida. Nick Calathes added 15 and Hodge had 10.

George Drake led Vandy with 14 points off the bench. Jermaine Beal had 13 and Jeffery Taylor 10. Preseason All-SEC center A.J. Ogilvy finished with four points and played only one minute in the second half.
