GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Walter Clayton Jr. scored 26 points and Florida used a 20-0 run in the second half to pull away for a 77-57 victory over Merrimack on Tuesday night.

Clayton and Zyon Pullin scored eight points each in the run and the Gators (5-3) turned a three-point deficit into a 54-37 lead with 9:43 left to play.
