AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Erving Walker scored five points over the
final 1:11 to help rescue cold-shooting Florida in a 45-40 win over
Auburn on Thursday night.

The Gators (14-4, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) hit just 28
percent from the floor but scored the final eight points to avoid
an embarrassing loss.

Kenny Boynton buried one 3-pointer to tie it with 1:50 left and
then Walker - who missed his first six attempts - finally hit one
for a 43-40 lead.

Earnest Ross was called for a charge at the other end after an
out-of-control drive for the Tigers (7-11, 0-4), but Walker's
off-balance jumper hit the side of the backboard to give the Tigers
a chance to tie it with 20 seconds to play.

Ross fired up an off-balance 3 from the corner that was short,
and Walker put the game away with two free throws in the final
