TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) –
Highly touted recruit Natasha Howard scored 20 points in her collegiate debut Friday and Cierra Bravard had 15 points and 17 rebounds to lead Florida State (No. 14 ESPN/USA Today, No.18 AP) to an 89-39 victory over Alabama State.

The Seminoles, coming off a school-best 29-6 record last season, raced to an 18-0 lead less than five minutes into the game. They built their advantage to 64-20 early in the second half with another 18-0 run as Alabama State went scoreless for 6:17 after coming out of the locker room.

The bulky, 6-foot-4 Bravard already had her double-double by halftime with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Her 17 rebounds were a career best. Alexa Deluzio added 16 points for Florida State.

Tanika Jackson led Alabama State with 13 points.

Howard, a former Ms. Ohio Basketball during her Toledo prep career, made 8-of-10 shots from the floor.
