The Gators utilized their interior presence by outrebounding UNF, 22-9. At the end of the half, the Gators were leading, 53-33.

The Gators had all the momentum in the second half, nailing open three point shots with fast ball movement, finishing the game shooting 56 percent as a team. Freshman Noah Locke led the Gators in scoring with 18 points and shot 7-11 from the field. Four other Gators finished the game scoring in double digits.
