ALN: Florida and LSU remain unbeaten

About last night in college hoops, not including Notre Dame-Kentucky, of course:

Florida 82, Marquette 49: The Gators improved to 6-0 thanks in part to an unlikely source. Michael Frazier II came off the bench to score 17 points in spurring the rout. Frazier made six of nine shots, including five of eight three-pointers. The Gators shot 50.9 percent and turned it over just eight times. Patric Young did not start, but scored 10 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Kenny Boynton missed his first six shots and finished two-of-11 form the floor. Vander Blue led Marquette with 20 points.

St. John's 89, South Carolina 65: D'Angelo Harrison led St. John's with 26 points as South Carolina dropped to 5-2 under new coach Frank Martin. Bruce Ellington played his first game for the Gamecocks and made just three of 10 shots and scored seven points. Martin said Ellington had practiced for a day and a half. South Carolina's Brenton Williams, a junior guard, was taken off the floor on a stretcher after suffering a neck injury. Reports said Williams was moving all his extremeties.

LSU 72, Seton Hall 67: LSU trailed by 16 points in the second half before rallying to get the win. The Tigers forced Seton Hall into 26 turnovers. Shavon Coleman scored 14 of his 18 points in the second half. Johnny O'Bryant scored 13 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. LSU is now 5-0 under first-year coach Johnny Jones.

Connecticut 61, New Hampshire 53: UConn pulled this one out despite making just one of 14 shots from three-point range. Ryan Boatright led the Huskies with 19 points. DeAndre Daniels grabbed 10 rebounds. New Hampshire shot just 30.6 percent.
