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.
