GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Pat Young scored 15 points, becoming the 50th player in school history to reach 1,000 in his career, and No. 13 Florida handled Savannah State 76-34 on Sunday.

Young received a standing ovation as he left the game with 5:41 remaining, waving to the crowd as his achievement was announced.

Young topped the 1,000-point plateau on a putback with 7:15 to play. It came shortly after he stepped to the free throw line with a chance to join the club. Young clanged it off the front rim, drawing groans from the crowd. He made amends, though, a few minutes later.

Young was one of four Florida players in double figures. Michael Frazier II had 11 points for the Gators (10-2). Casey Prather and Scottie Wilbekin chipped in 10 points each.

Jyles Smith led Savannah State (2-11) with eight points and eight rebounds. The Tigers have lost nine straight.
