GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Chandler Parsons scored a season-high
19 points, Vernon Macklin also had 19 and No. 14 Florida used a
second-half surge to roll Alabama 78-51 on Tuesday night.

The Gators clinched at least a share of the Southeastern
Conference championship and can claim their fifth outright league
title with a win at No. 21 Vanderbilt on Saturday. Florida (23-6,
12-3) also would win the league if Georgia beats Alabama earlier
Saturday.

The Crimson Tide (19-10, 11-4) needed a road win to improve
their chances of making the NCAA tournament. Now, the Tide probably need to win the SEC tournament to earn the league's automatic bid.

Alabama probably would like to avoid seeing the Gators again in
the postseason. Florida dominated every aspect of the second half, using a 10-0 run to build a double-digit lead and then pouring it on with 3-pointers and dunks.
