Exhibition Game 2: Florida 101, Lynn 65

GAINESVILLE -- A quick seven-point run (Tyus dunk, Hodge three-pointer, Jon Mitchell dunk) gives Florida a 33-point lead. 30-point-cushion/Jon Mitchell-dunk rule achieved: No more blogging live. Florida 79, Division II Lynn 47; 11:01. 

Falling in love with the games of Florida freshman Adam Allen and Alex Tyus. These players are ready to contribute right now. Allen just drained a three-pointer moments after a strong inside move. Tyus banks in a short turnaround. Florida 73, Lynn 43; 13:45.

Jai Lucas makes a three-pointer to give him five points tonight. Florida 61, Lynn 41; 17:52.

Werner must have read the blog. He hit a three-pointer to start the half, followed by a Speights dunk. Florida 56, Lynn 39.

HALFTIME Florida 51, Lynn 37. Halftime thoughts: Donovan's 2005 and 2006 recruiting classes were absolutely awful. Hodge is the only player left from 2005. Speights, Werner and Jon Mitchell from 2006. Play Speights and four freshman and bring Hodge off the bench.

Werner, no points, picks up his third foul of the half. Florida 49, Lynn 35.

Werner back in the game. Fans seated behind me screaming, "No, Werner, don't shoot!" Florida 43, Lynn 31; 3:54.

An eight-point run, including five points from Parsons, gives Florida 41-28 lead.

Florida freshman Adam "Country Strong" Allen swished a three-pointer. Lynn counters with a three-point play. Four three-pointers in last five minutes keeping Lynn in the game. Florida 25, Lynn 20.

Florida's 6-10 Marreese Speights dominating little Lynn now. Back-to-back inside buckets. Florida 19, Lynn 14; 11:54.

Lynn's Chris Hall of Lauderhill drains back-to-back three-pointers. Florida 17, Lynn 14. This just in, Tyus' forehead wound caused by freshman English.

All five freshman on the floor now. Alex Tyus has a large band-aid on his forehead.

I'm sitting next to a Herald columnist, who will remain nameless, and he's already hating on Dan Werner. Florida takes the lead on a Nick Calathes three-pointer. Florida 10-7, 14:41.

Florida's Dan Werner missed a three-pointer that's now being described as the worst three-point attempt in the history of basketball.

Lynn has the lead. 3-2, after a three-pointer. Florida's uniforms look like the Phoenix Suns.

Line-up change, BREAKING NEWS!!! Lynn is replacing Greg Boxell with 5-11 guard Luke Postorina, a junior. Someone call Vegas.

Florida plays Lynn University of West Palm Beach tonight. This is the Gators' second and final exhibition game before Friday's season opener against North Dakota State.
