Boynton added three rebounds, two assists and a steal.

Also shining for Florida on Monday night was sophomore guard Ray Shipman, who went 7/11 for 16 points, five rebounds and three assists. Other Gators scoring in double digits included sophomore center Kenny Kadji (11) and both sophomore point guard Erving Walker and junior forward Chandler Parsons (12).

As a whole, Florida shot 53.7% from the field, 41.7% from three and only 71% from the line.
