JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Casey Prather scored 27 points, Michael Frazier II added 17 and No. 15 Florida handled Jacksonville 86-60 Monday night.

The Gators (5-1) won their fourth consecutive game following a loss at 10th-ranked Wisconsin two weeks ago. The latest victory was a final tuneup before the team's toughest stretch of the season - games against Florida State, Connecticut, Kansas and Memphis.

It should help that point guard Scottie Wilbekin has returned to the rotation. Coach Billy Donovan even started the senior, who was suspended the first five games of the season and an exhibition contest for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

Wilbekin finished with 12 points, seven assists, five rebounds and just two turnovers. Dorian Finney-Smith added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the visitors. Patric Young chipped in 13 points.

Jarvis Haywood led the Dolphins (2-4) with 16 points. Vince Martin added 11 points and 10 boards.
