No. 7 Florida overwhelms Marquette 82-49
FLORIDA 82, MARQUETTE 49

By MARK LONG
AP Sports Writer

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Benched because of his attitude in
practice, Pat Young responded as well as Florida coach Billy
Donovan could have imagined.



Young had 10 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and three blocks
as the seventh-ranked Gators routed Marquette 82-49 Thursday
night in the SEC-Big East Challenge.



Young played with energy and effort - the kind of performance
Donovan expects every night from his 6-foot-9 junior center.



"My job as a coach is to bring out the best in Patric Young as a
player," Donovan said. "Right now, he wasn't doing that. It
wasn't performance. It was effort, his attitude, his
disruptiveness in practice that caused me to say you're not
starting. Give Patric credit. He responded with a great effort."



Young was one of six players in double figures for Florida
(6-0).



The Gators took control midway through the first half, building
a double-digit lead thanks to Michael Frazier II's hot hand and
solid defense, and never let up.



They kept things rolling after the break, opening up a 23-point
lead on Will Yeguete's layup.



And get this: the Gators stayed unbeaten without much help from
Kenny Boynton. The team's leading scorer missed his first six
shots and was scoreless until hitting a jumper with 16:34
remaining.



Boynton finished with six points on 2-of-11 shooting. Frazier
(17 points), Yeguete (11), Casey Prather (11), Mike Rosario
(11), and Erik Murphy (10) all scored in double digits.



Vander Blue led Marquette (5-2) with 20 points, the team's only
player in double figures.



Florida's balanced scoring was impressive, but was overshadowed
by Frazier and Young.



Frazier made 5 of 8 shots from 3-point range, getting on such a
role in the first half that teammates started looking for the
6-4 freshman guard.



"I don't know when I started feeling it," Frazier said. "I kept
playing, kept shooting, I was open. My teammates did a great job
of finding me, and shots went down. The bucket did seem a little
bit bigger than usual. When you get extra shots up and your
teammates find you, you can't ask for anything more."



Young, meanwhile, came off the bench for the first time this
season.



But he played nothing like a reserve. He dominated the boards
and did all the little things. He had two monster blocks, a
couple of nifty passes, went after loose balls and had a leaping
steal near midcourt that turned into points.



"I believe that (Donovan) sees something far greater than what I
see in myself, and I just need to embrace the moment of
adversity," Young said. "When he says he's squeezing us, I need
to embrace those moments and trust my teammates to help me
because I don't have to do this on my own."



Florida held Marquette to 41 percent shooting, the latest
shutdown for Donovan's defensive-minded team. The Gators have
held opponents to 26 or fewer points in 10 of 12 halves this
season.



The Golden Eagles scored 24 in the first and 25 in the second.
They finished 3 of 12 from 3-point range and turned the ball
over 14 times.



Marquette had won three in a row and was looking to avenge last
season's loss to the Gators in the NCAA tournament. Florida won
68-58 in the round of 16 in Phoenix.



Marquette lost Jae Crowder and Darius-Johnson Odom off that
team, but the Golden Eagles showed little drop-off while playing
Butler tight in the Maui Invitational and beating Mississippi
State and USC.



But they were overmatched in Gainesville.



"I've never been beat this bad in my entire career - 179 games
as a head coach," Marquette coach Buzz Williams said. "That's
the worst loss. Not close."



Florida opened a 23-13 lead midway through the first half,
pushed it to 38-20 on consecutive 3s from Frazier and could have
cruised in the second half.



Instead, the Gators poured it on. Frazier's fifth 3-pointer made
it 70-39 with 6:14 remaining.



About the only concerns for the Gators were a couple of minor
injuries.



Murphy went to the locker room with what appeared to be a hip
injury, and Scottie Wilbekin went down with a right leg injury



"I think they're good enough to win the whole thing," Williams
said.
