Florida Gators freshman Kenny Boynton Jr. leaves exhibition game favoring left knee

GAINESVILLE -- Florida Gators freshman Kenny Boynton Jr. left the Gators' first exhibition game on Saturday with what appeared to be a slight knee strain. Boynton missed a three-pointer with 4:02 left in the second half against St. Leo and appeared to come down awkwardly on his left knee.

Boynton of Pompano Beach left the game and watched the remainder of the contest from the bench. The injury did not appear to be serious. Boynton scored a game-high 22 points in his first college basketball game. He was 7-14 from the field and 5-9 from three-point range. Florida defeated St. Leo of Orlando 95-46.

(UPDATING THIS STORY: Boynton said he was fine after the game after appearing to tweak his knee late in the second half. Boynton's family drove up from Broward County for his first preseason game.
