GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Michael Frazier II scored 14 points, highly touted freshman Chris Walker had two crowd-pleasing dunks in his debut and No. 3 Florida beat Missouri 68-58 on Tuesday night.
The Gators won their 14th consecutive game and extended a school record with their 28th straight victory at home.
Frazier came up huge in the latest one. The sophomore drained three 3-pointers in a 2-minute span in the second half, giving Florida some breathing room in a tight, back-and-forth game.
Patric Young's driving layup with 4:10 remaining gave the Gators (20-2, 9-0 Southeastern Conference) a 58-48 lead.
Missouri's 3-point shooting kept the Tigers (16-6, 4-5) in it for much of the game.
Missouri made 8 of 21 from behind the arc, but just 4 of 13 in the second half. The Tigers went more than 4 minutes without a point, a stretch that helped Florida build its biggest lead.
Jabari Brown led the Tigers with 15 points while Jordan Clarkson added 14.
