Gainesville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Scottie Wilbekin led all scorers with 19 points in No. 3 Florida's 68-58 victory over Missouri on Tuesday from O'Connell Center.
Wilbekin made just two field goals but hit 13-of-16 from the charity stripe to help Florida (20-2, 9-0 SEC) to its 14th straight win. Michael Frazier II netted 12 of his 14 points in the second half, and Patric Young notched 13 in the triumph.
Florida got a boost from freshman big man Chris Walker, who finally made his debut after academic issues and a suspension for receiving impermissible benefits kept him out of the first 21 games. Walker threw down a pair of alley-oops to go with two rebounds and two blocks in his first collegiate action.
Missouri's (16-6, 4-5) dynamic backcourt of Jabari Brown and Jordan Clarkson scored 15 and 14 points, respectively, with Brown also contributing six assists in the Tigers' second straight loss.
