GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Mike Rosario scored 15 points and Patric Young added 14 on Saturday night to pace a balanced attack that helped No. 5 Florida rebound from one of its two Southeastern Conference losses with a 71-54 victory over Arkansas.

Kenny Boynton and Erik Murphy each had 12 points for the first-place Gators (22-4, 12-2 SEC), who also bounced back from squandering a 13-point lead over the final 11 minutes of a 63-60 loss at Missouri to regain a two-game lead in the SEC over Alabama, which lost on the road earlier in the day to LSU in triple-overtime.

Coty Clarke led Arkansas (17-10, 8-6) with 18 points and Anthlon Bell finished with 14. The Razorbacks' top two scorers, BJ Young and Marshawn Powell, were limited to seven and three points, respectively.
