TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Nigel “Big Jelly” Dixon, Florida State’s
335-pound junior center, scored a career-high 28 points Friday to lead the
Seminoles to an 89-59 victory over Elon (N.C.) College.

Dixon scored Florida State’s first seven points in the game and finished
with 17 in the second half. He shot 13-of-18 from the field and grabbed a
game-high eight rebounds.

Florida State (2-1) led 43-30 at halftime and opened its biggest lead at
86-54 with 1:54 left in the game.

Elon (2-2) was led by Steven Harvin and Quinton McCleod, who each scored 10
points. The Phoenix, who are hoping to improve on a 9-20 record a year ago,
shot 42.6 percent from the field and were outmatched in rebounding where the
taller, heavier Seminoles enjoyed a 50-30 advantage.

Antwuan Dixon, who is not related to Nigel Dixon, added 14 points for
Florida State while freshman Anthony Richardson chipped in with 13 and Monte
Cummings had 10.

Florida State shot 50 percent from the field and forced 18 turnovers.

Dixon’s previous career-high was 23 points last year against Rhode Island.
