AP Game Recap

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida coach Billy Donovan warned anyone who would listen in the preseason.

Now he has some proof.

Casey Prather scored a career-high 28 points, Michael Frazier II added 19 and No. 10 Florida held on the beat North Florida 77-69 in the season opener Friday.

The short-handed Gators won their 23rd consecutive opener -- a much-needed tuneup before playing at 20th-ranked Wisconsin on Tuesday night.

But even before the schedule toughens, Donovan has a pretty clear indication about his team.

"We are light years away from even being a remotely good defensive team right now and light years away from even being a ranked team," Donovan said.

Florida let North Florida, a team ranked No.
