TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Kenny Boynton had 20 points and Will Yeguete scored 11 and grabbed 13 rebounds Sunday to help No. 10 Florida pull away to a 66-45 victory over Middle Tennessee. Boynton scored the final 13 of the game for the Gators (3-0), who opened the second half with a 14-2 run and never looked back. Middle Tennessee (2-1) trimmed a 15-point deficit to nine before Mike Rosario finished a fast-break with a dunk and Boynton hit a 3-pointer to begin his game-ending spurt. Marcos Knight led Middle Tennessee with 12 points and Shawn Jones added 10 for the Blue Raiders, who trailed 29-26 at halftime. Florida turned up the defensive pressure in the second half, limiting the Blue Raiders to 27 percent shooting after the break. Middle Tennessee missed seven of eight shots while the Gators were taking control over an eight-minute stretch.
