GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP)
Will Yeguete, playing in his first game since returning from a broken bone in his foot last season, had 20 points and 11 rebounds in 24 minutes to lead No. 10 Florida to a 101-71 victory over Nebraska-Kearney in an exhibition game Thursday night.
Freshman Michael Frazier II led the Gators with 21 points, and starting guard Kenny Boynton added 14. Florida shot 60.3 percent from the field, including 11 of 24 from 3-point range.
The Gators have a week to prepare for their regular-season opener on Nov. 9 against Georgetown. That game will be held aboard the USS Bataan near Jacksonville, Fla. They follow five days later with a home game against No. 23 Wisconsin.
Florida is coming off consecutive regional final appearances in the NCAA tournament.
