Recap: Yale vs. Florida

New Haven, CT (Sports Network) - Kenny Boynton knocked down eight 3-pointers in matching a career-best 28 points, as the Florida Gators closed out a three- game road trip with a 79-58 decision over Yale.

Boynton connected on 8-of-10 from long distance for the Gators (10-2), who also received 14 points and nine rebounds from Will Yeguete. Florida shot an incredible 60 percent from the floor for the game in collecting its second straight win.

"I just think I played tonight -- and even the last game -- with a clear mind and not thinking about it," Boynton said of his early season shooting struggles. "I knew it was a matter of time."

Mike Rosario chipped in with 13 points, three rebounds and three steals in the victory.

Justin Sears tallied 15 points and four steals, while Javier Duren and Armani Cotton followed with 14 and 12 points, respectively, in the setback for Yale (5-11), which has not won back-to-back games all season. The Bulldogs were coming off a victory over Holy Cross on Friday.

"When a shooter sees the ball go in the hole, his eyes get bigger," Yale coach James Jones said of Boynton's big night.

Yale stayed close for most of the first half, but a late Gators run prevented the Bulldogs from making the contest competitive again.

After Michael Grace cut Yale's deficit to 21-20, Florida used a 14-3 surge over the final five minutes to create separation.

The push was highlighted by a three-point play from Casey Prather and a 3- pointer from Boynton. Michael Frazier then drew a foul on a three-point attempt and sank all three shots from the line to conclude the run and send the Gators into halftime with a 35-23 edge.

The game quickly unraveled for the Bulldogs during a 15-4 Florida flurry to start the second stanza.

Boynton knocked down three shots from beyond the arc during the push. His 3- pointer with 16:38 to go capped the surge to give Florida a commanding 50-27 advantage.

The Bulldogs never came closer than 17 points the rest of the way.
