TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Kenny Boynton and Mike Rosario both scored 14 points Wednesday night and No. 6 Florida romped to a 72-47 victory over Florida State.

It took the Gators just 5 minutes to take a 12-2 lead and the rout was on. Boynton's layup with 8:57 left gave Florida its largest lead, 62-25.

Florida (7-0) has held five opponents to less than 50 points this season while taking its fourth straight win over the Seminoles (4-4) who have lost three straight home games. This is their most lopsided defeat to Florida since a 96-61 loss in 1999.

Michael Frazier added 12 points and Patric Young finished with 10 points and eight rebounds for the Gators, who cruised to a 35-15 halftime lead in their first road game of the season.

Michael Snaer led Florida State with 10 points, all in the second half.



PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Kevin Pangos' layup with 2 seconds left gave Gonzaga its best start as a Division I team.

Elias Harris scored 23 points and Kelly Olynyk had 22, all in the second half, for Gonzaga (9-0). The Bulldogs had been tied with the 1994-95 team for best start.

Brock Motum had 23 points and DaVonte Lacy added 22 for Washington State (5-4), which saw its three-game winning streak snapped.

Motum hit a 3-pointer with 14 seconds left to bring WSU within 68-67.

Gary Bell Jr. made a free throw for Gonzaga, and Lacy made a layup to tie the score at 69.

That set up Pangos' game-winning drive that gave him eight points.

Olynyk had 10 points in the first 8 minutes of the second half.

Five Trojans scored in double figures, led by 14 from Eric Wise, but USC (3-5) still lost its fourth straight.

New Mexico's biggest lead was 59-42. The Trojans closed the gap behind a 13-2 run that made it 70-65 with 2:13 left. But Williams followed with a 3-pointer to break the streak.

The Golden Lions (1-7) missed their first 13 shots and didn't score until 9:48 into the game.

Arkansas-Pine Bluff's DaVon Haynes scored a season-high 20 points - all after halftime.

He finished it off by hitting another 3, then making a quick steal in the backcourt before setting up Brown's layup for a 48-34 lead with 7:29 remaining.

The Bulls (5-3) couldn't get closer than nine points after that.
