GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Florida State defeated the Florida Gators, 83-66, in Gainesville on Monday night.

In the first half, the Noles had multiple stretches of two-plus minute scoreless droughts as well as two runs of 7-0 and 8-0 to hold the Gators at bay, in taking a 42-35 halftime lead.

FSU never trailed in the second half, and held the Gators scoreless from the floor in the final 3:45 of the half, except for a basket made by the Gators in the final seconds.
