Bonham was the hottest Gator of them all, scoring 17 points while going 5-for-5 from distance, making both his free-throw attempts and adding three assists. Reeves added 15 points in the first half.

Florida returned home after losing two of three games at the PK85 tournament last week. Bonham averaged 21 points in a win over Oregon State (81-68) and a loss to Xavier (90-83) but was held to three points in a blowout 84-55 loss to West Virginia in the Gators' third game.
The Rattlers have several games remaining against teams from Power 6 conferences and have already lost to Oregon, Oregon State and Miami. Their ambitious schedule still has Georgia, Louisville, No. 19 Kentucky and No. 5 Purdue before Southwest Athletic Conference play begins on Jan. 2.
