TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Alexander Johnson scored 20 points to lead Florida State to a 75-57 victory over winless Stetson Tuesday.
Anthony Register scored 17 points to lead Stetson, who played without two of its top three scorers. E.J. Gordon and Will Holloman were suspended for the game due to a violation of team rules.
Register’s 3-pointer at the 13:16 mark in the first half gave the Hatters a 19-13 lead, but the Seminoles responded with a 14-2 run.
Of Florida State’s 30 first-half points, 17 came courtesy of Stetson turnovers and 23 were sent to the books via slam dunks, lay-ups or free throws.
Guards Gabe McMillen and Kris Thomas chipped in 11 apiece for the Hatters.
The Seminoles worked their smaller opponents for 48 points in the paint, 30 of which game in the decisive second half.
