Gainesville, FL -- Fifth-ranked Florida went on a 32-2 second half run on the way to a 102-54 win over the New Hampshire Wildcats in Gainesville Saturday. With starting guard Teddy Dupay sidelined with tendinitis in his right knee, sophomore Brett Nelson picked up the slack and scored a career-high 26 points. Nelson made seven of the Gators' season-high 15 three-pointers and added six assists, five rebounds and two steals to his highlight performance.
Austin Ganly was the only Wildcat in double figures with 12 points.
The Gators gave up eight straight points to New Hampshire and had its lead trimmed to 18 early in the second half. But the Gators caught fire and went on a 32-2 run to build an 87-37 lead.
Former Gainesville High School product Orien Green established a career-high with 13 points. New Hampshire native Matt Bonner scored 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Brent Wright also scored in double figures with 12 points. Greene, who's previous career career high was seven points, had 11 in the first half alone.
The Gators scored 100 or more points for the fifth time this season surpassing the old school record of four held by the 1986-87 team. They also improved to 10-1 for the fifth time in school history.
