Sunrise, Fla. • Kenny Boynton snapped a shooting slump Saturday with three 3-pointers in the second half, when No. 14 Florida pulled away to beat Air Force 78-61 in the second game of the Orange Bowl Basketball Classic.

Boynton had made only 4 of 32 from 3-point range over the previous five games, but he hit three in a span of eight minutes to break open the game. The Gators used their superior size and smothering defense to grind down the Falcons, who shot 48 percent in the first half and 32 percent in the second half.

Florida (9-2) won for only the second time in the past four games. Air Force (8-3) fell to 2-77 against ranked teams. —
