Kenny Boynton scored 20 points and Florida used a 31-6 run across the halves to rout LSU 74-52 on Saturday. Patric Young had 14 points for the Gators (12-2, 2-0 SEC). Boynton's perimeter shooting and Young's interior play were instrumental in Florida controlling the offensive end. The Tigers (9-4, 0-2) stuck around well into the first half before Florida broke a 19-all tie with a 10-1 run to end the half, punctuated by Scottie Wilbekin's jumper at the buzzer. Anthony Hickey scored 15 points for LSU, who have lost 4 of 7 after starting the season with six-straight wins. French center Will Yeguete had 10 points and 13 rebounds to lead Florida, which outrebouned LSU 53-34. Five Gators had at least seven rebounds. Both teams struggled to find their shots early, but Florida's aggressive defensive rebounding and stingy possessions allowed them to build a 15-10 lead. The Tigers rallied with Anthony Hickey finding Andrew Del Piero slicing through the paint to lay in a tying basket. The Gators expanded their lead in cutthroat fashion to open the second half, scoring 12 of the half's first 15 points to go up 41-25. Boynton made two 3-pointers and scored eight points in the first five minutes. LSU created opportune looks at the basket all game, but shot 32.3 percent. With the 13 minutes to go in the second half, the Tigers were shooting a meager 25 percent.
