seconds, sparked by Thornton.

grabbed eight as the Seminoles finished with a 44-20 advantage on the boards,

only two of its first nine and then was unable to get back into the game in the
second half, trailing on two occasions by as many as 19 points.

The Gators did close within 69-60 on a layup by Anthony Roberson, who had 22
points. Lee Humphrey added 15 for the Gators.

Florida State shot 51 percent for the game, including 60 percent from
3-point range, while Florida hit 46 percent, including 41.7 percent from beyond
the arc.
