No. 14 Florida pounds Arkansas

Erving Walker had 31 points and five 68 pounding of Arkansas.

Kenny Boynton had 25 points and five rebounds, while Bradley Beal added 21 points and nine boards for the Gators (21-6, 9-3 SEC), who have won their last two after back-to-back losses.

B.J. Young scored 31 points and Devonta Abron added 11 for the Razorbacks (17-10, 5-7), who have dropped four of five.

Erik Murphy's three-pointer just over a minute in gave the Gators a lead that they would never relinquish.

A 14-3 run later in the first half was capped on a pair of three-pointers from Walker for a 27-11 lead halfway through.

That was part of seven consecutive three-balls from Florida. Walker capped the barrage with six minutes to play for a 42-21 lead.

"They hit a lot of threes and it's hard to stop a team that's shooting that well and at that pace," said Young. "They were just a better team than us (but) I don't think they're 30 points better."

The Gators pushed their advantage to 53-27 at the break, and a Beal three- pointer three minutes into the second half made it a 63-35 game.

Florida had a lead as high as 32 points in the second half in the easy victory.
