NASHVILLE, Tenn.(AP) -- A.J. Ogilvy scored 24 points, and Vanderbilt opened the Southeastern Conference schedule beating Florida 95-87 Saturday for the Commodores' sixth straight victory.
The Gators (11-4) hadn't lost an SEC opener since 2001 at South Carolina, and that streak included four wins on the road to open league play. Florida also came in having won three straight this season and having dominated this series as winners of 15 of the past 18.
But Vanderbilt (12-3) got the Gators into foul trouble and outscored them 20-8 off turnovers.
Jermaine Beal scored 22 points, Jeffrey Taylor had 14 and freshman John Jenkins added 13.
Kenny Boynton had a career-high 28 points for Florida. Erving Walker also had a career-best 22. Alex Tyus added 12, and Dan Werner 11. Vernon Macklin and Chris Murphy each fouled out with more than six minutes remaining.
