Wilbekin Helps Florida Turn Close Game Into Rout Over Georgia
GAINESVILLE- The Florida Gator basketball team didn't flinch at a three-point halftime deficit on the road. Instead, they turned into another double-digit conference victory, as the Gators beat Georgia 64-47 Wednesday night in Athens, Ga.
The Bulldogs came out playing physical and knocking down tough shots, as they built an early 11-2 lead.
But the Gators slowly started climbing back, aided greatly by junior guard Scottie Wilbekin, who had 13 of his game-high 17 points in the first half-when no other Gator had more than 5.
The Bulldogs led 27-24 at the half, but the Gators erased any ideas of a huge upset, as they started off the second half on a 24-5 run, taking control and cruising to their fifth conference win of the season.
