ATLANTA (AP) -- Kenny Boynton scored 24 points, Erving Walker added 17 and No. 12 Florida recovered from another slow start to beat Vanderbilt 77-66 in the Southeastern Conference semifinals Saturday.

The Gators (26-6) matched their biggest comeback of the season, overcoming a 12-point deficit early in the second half. They will meet Kentucky in the championship game Sunday.

Florida beat the Commodores (23-10) at their 3-point game. Boynton hit five shots beyond the arc, Walker made three and the Gators finished 11 of 21 overall.

Vanderbilt was just 6 of 33, and SEC leading scorer John Jenkins had a particularly tough day. Coming off a 29-point performance in the quarterfinals, he looked as though an ailing left foot was bothering him more than it did against Mississippi State. He scored just 10 points on 3-of-15 shooting.

Jeffery Taylor led the Commodores with 21 points.
