TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Toney Douglas scored 20 of his game-high 26 points in the second half and Ryan Reid drew a charging call at the buzzer, preserving Florida State’s 79-77 home-opening victory over Stetson on Thursday night.
Douglas scored 14 of the Seminoles’ (3-0) final 20 points, capped by a pair of free throws with 1:02 remaining for a 79-75 lead.
Stetson (1-2) cut the lead to two points on A.J. Smith’s driving layup with 43 seconds to play, and the Hatters got the ball back with nine seconds remaining after a Jordan DeMercy miss. Smith was driving for the tying basket when Reid stepped in to draw the charge as the horn sounded.
