Gators destroy North Carolina A&T 105-55
The No. 11/No. 9 Florida Gators know how to recover nicely, defeating the North Carolina A&T Aggies 105-55 Thursday, putting Tuesday's ugly loss to No. 5/No. 4 Ohio State behind them.
Led by 16 points each from Chandler Parsons and Kenny Boynton, eight Gators scored in double figures and Florida eclipsed the 100-point mark for the first time since 2007.
In addition to a great offensive output, the Gators stifled North Carolina A&T defensively, holding the Aggies to a 34.5 shooting percentage.
Florida head coach Billy Donovan, who called his team "totally undisciplined" following Tuesday's loss to the Buckeyes, was much happier with his team's performance tonight.
"I'm really encouraged with the way our guys responded and the attitude they came out with," Donovan said.
While the Gators are sure to drop in the rankings following Tuesday's loss, this win allowed Florida to end this week on a good note.
The Gators' next opponent will be Morehead State Sunday, which will start at 3:30 p.m. in the O'Connell Center.
