GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Kenny Boynton scored 15 points, Pat Young added 14 and No. 11 Florida routed Vanderbilt 66-40 on Wednesday night to clinch the Southeastern Conference regular season championship.
Florida won its fourth outright league title and third under longtime coach Billy Donovan. The Gators (24-5, 14-3 SEC) were alone atop the standings in 1988-89, 2006-07 and 2010-11.
Like the others, this one earned the Gators the No. 1 seed heading into next week's SEC tournament. It also capped a perfect season (15-0) at home and sent seniors Boynton, Erik Murphy and Mike Rosario out with a victory on "Senior Night."
After the win, the Gators started cutting down the nets.
Kendren Johnson had 15 points for the Commodores (13-16, 7-10), including 13 straight at one point.
