    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — KeVaughn Allen scored 21 points and Canyon Barry added 20 off the bench as Florida beat Seton Hall 81-76 in a first-round game at the AdvoCare Invitational on Thursday night.

    Allen had a layup and Barry hit a 3 to make it 69-61 with 5 minutes to play. After Khadeen Carrington’s 3-point play got Seton Hall within two with 2 minutes remaining, Allen made a layup to put Florida up 75-71.

    The Gators secured it by making 6 of 8 free throws during the final minute of play.

    Florida (5-0) also got 14 points from Chris Chiozza.

    Carrington had a career-high 28 points and Myles Powell 16 for Seton Hall (3-1).

    In a matchup of teams that both received votes in this week’s AP poll, Seton Hall took a 40-39 halftime lead.
