ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- No. 8 Florida shook off a sluggish first half and romped past another Southeastern Conference opponent, beating Georgia 64-47 Wednesday night behind 17 points from Scottie Wilbekin.

Florida (15-2, 5-0 SEC) trailed 27-24 at halftime, making just 1 of 9 attempts beyond the 3-point arc. But the Gators quickly turned things around after the break. Wilbeken and Mike Rosario hits back-to-back treys and forced Georgia into three straight turnovers.

The Gators led the rest of way, holding Georgia (7-11, 1-4) to only one field goal in the first 11 1-2 minutes of the second half.

Despite never leading in the first half, Florida added to its run of dominance in conference play. The Gators have won their first five SEC games by an average of nearly 25 points.
