Recap: Florida vs. Richmond

Gainesville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Michael Frazier II scored a team-high 18 points to lead No. 12 Florida to a 67-58 win over Richmond on Saturday.

Patric Young tallied 15 points, while Casey Prather and Scottie Wilbekin scored 12 and 10, respectively, for the Gators (11-2).

Cedrick Lindsay paced the Spiders (10-5) with 19 points and Kendall Anthony added 15 in defeat.

Alonzo Nelson-Ododa made a jumper to put the Spiders up 50-49 with under five minutes to play in the game when Florida took control.

The Gators proceeded to use a 12-0 run to that Young began with a tough three- point play in traffic.

Prather followed with a three-point play of his own and then Dorian Finney- Smith buried a 3 to extend the lead to 58-50 with 3 1/2 minutes left.

Young capped the run with a free throw over two minutes later as Florida held off the upset-minded Spiders.

"It was a close game," Young said. "We were down with seven minutes left, so when you look back at the game, we should have scored, obviously. There was some fouling at the end, so that's why we probably broke away. We also missed a lot of free throws."

Earlier, Young made a layup to give the Gators an 18-11 advantage with 7:53 to play in the first half.

Richmond, however, was game throughout the contest and didn't let the hosts get too far in front.

Anthony hit a 3 which was followed by a layup from Derrick Williams as the Spiders closed to within two, 23-21.

Each team then traded baskets and the first half ended with nearly two minutes of scoreless basketball. Florida led 25-23 at the break.

"We came into the game with a lot of heart; we were tough," Richmond coach Chris Mooney said. "There were some things we could have handled better, but as far as our effort, confidence, and toughness, that cannot be questioned."
