Florida 82, Vanderbilt 68

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Erving Walker scored 17 points off the bench, Nick Calathes added 14 and Florida beat Vanderbilt 82-68 Saturday to remain tied atop the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

Walter Hodge chipped in 12 point for the Gators, who extended their home-winning streak to 17 and swept the season series against the Commodores.

Florida (21-6, 8-4 SEC) made 15 3-pointers in the first meeting last month and handed Vandy its worst loss of the season, 94-69. This one was another lopsided affair -- mostly because Florida got off to a torrid start.

The Gators, who jumped out to a 19-4 lead, were up 50-25 early in the second and easily held on from there.

A.J. Ogilvy led the Commodores (16-10, 5-7) with 18 points and six rebounds. Brad Tinsley had 12 points.
