Florida Vs. Alabama Recap: Patric Young And Brad Beal Get Gators Back On Track

After losing two straight SEC games last week, the Florida Gators bounced back on Tuesday night with a solid 61-52 road win over Alabama. The Gators did not shoot particularly well but got a strong performance from Patric Young on the interior and clamped down on the defensive end, forcing 17 Crimson Tide turnovers. Alabama was a ranked team headed for the tournament but is now on the bubble after a tumultuous conference season.

Young had one of his best games of the season on the offensive end, finishing with 19 points. Freshman Brad Beal had another solid game on the glass and the scoreboard, grabbing eight boards and filling it up with 14 points. Erik Murphy also had a nice night for Billy Donovan's club, hitting four three-pointers and adding 14 points. The Gators needed Young and Beal to step up as Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton were off all night.

Florida now heads back west to face Arkansas this weekend, looking to start another conference winning streak.
