Recap: Florida vs. Tennessee

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.

""We had a little chip on our shoulder because they kicked our butts the last three times," Young said.

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.

Stokes had the Vols within seven, 28-21, moments into the second half, but a Frazier 3-pointer ignited a 19-3 run that made it 47-24 with 10:49 to go.

Florida continued to pound away at Tennessee, stretching its lead to 32 points after Dorian Finney-Smith canned a triple for a 67-35 lead with 2:40 left.

The Vols scored the final six points of the game to account for the final margin.

The Gators trailed 7-6 early in the first, but opened a 16-8 burst to go up 22-15 before taking a 26-19 lead into the break.
