GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Erik Murphy scored 15 points and No. 17 Florida beat LSU 76-64 Saturday night to extend its home win streak to 16 games.
The Gators (15-4, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) had five players in double figures, a balanced effort that helped them overcome an off shooting night from 3-point range. Erving Walker had 12 points, and Kenny Boynton, Bradley Beal and Mike Rosario finished with 11 points apiece for Florida, which made 7 of 21 shots from behind the arc.
Justin Hamilton led the Tigers with a career-high 27 points and eight rebounds. The 7-footer made 13 of 22 shots, nearly as many as the rest of his team.
Hamilton helped LSU (12-7, 2-3) trim the lead to 68-60 with 3 minutes remaining, but the Gators pulled away down the stretch. Walker hit a 3 with 2:27 remaining -- his first of the game -- to make it 73-60.
