Florida’s Kenny Boynton, a graduate of Pompano Beach American Heritage, returns to South Florida tonight.

No. 13 Florida vs. Richmond

When/where: 6:30 p.m.; BankAtlantic Arena, Sunrise

TV/Radio: Sun Sports; 620-AM

Records: Florida 8-1; Richmond 7-3

Notable: After playing eight games in 17 days, the Gators have had a nine-day layoff to prepare for today's Orange Bowl Classic. … This will be a homecoming for sophomore G/F Ray Shipman and freshman G Kenny Boynton, both South Florida natives. Boynton is expecting about 40 friends and family to attend. … The Gators enter the game dealing with injury issues. Junior F Chandler Parsons has a torn leg muscle, but is expected to play. Sophomore F Kenny Kadji (back) and freshman F Erik Murphy (shoulder) are questionable. … Richmond, which returns four starters from last season's 20-win team, already has earned wins over Mississippi State and Missouri.
