Gainesville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Michael Frazier II scored 17 points and Scottie Wilbekin added 13 as No. 6 Florida cruised to a 67-41 dismantling of Tennessee on Saturday.

Casey Prather added 12 points and Patric Young finished with 10 for the Gators (17-2, 6-0 SEC), winners in 11 straight. Florida has won a school-record 26 straight games at O'Connell Center.

Jarnell Stokes had 16 points and 10 rebounds and Jeronne Maymon added eight points and seven boards for the Volunteers (12-7, 3-3), who shot a miserable 26.8 percent (15-for-56) from the field, including a woeful 5.3 percent (1- for-19) from 3-point range.
