GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Kenny Boynton scored 18 points, half of
them coming on three consecutive 3-pointers that changed the game,
and No. 13 Florida beat Georgia 71-62 Thursday night.
Erving Walker added 15 points, and Chandler Parsons chipped in
16 while returning from a thigh injury.
The Gators clinched at least a share of the Southeastern
Conference's Eastern Division for the first time since 2007 and
could secure a No. 1 seed in the league's postseason tournament.
Florida (22-5, 11-2 SEC) has won 14 of its last 16 games,
including six in a row. The Gators swept Georgia (18-9, 7-6) for
the first time since 2008 and extended their home-winning streak
against the Bulldogs to nine.
Boynton had a lot to do with the latest victory.
