Gallery: Florida 74, Wisconsin 56

The No. 10 Florida Gators basketball team raced out to an early double-digit lead and kept the No. 22 Wisconsin Badgers at arm’s length the rest of the way en route to a convincing 74-56 win in the Stephen C. O’Connell Center on Thursday.

Erik Murphy, who was listed as questionable with flu-like symptoms leading up to the game, hit all 10 of his field goal attempts to tie a career-high with 24 points. He was just the fourth Gators’ player to sink 10 shots or more in the program’s history.

Gator Country’s John Parady wa there to capture all of the action from on and off of the court. He has filed more than 50 images in this photo gallery.
