TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Freshmen Anthony Richardson and Adam Waleskowski
led a group of six players in double figures Tuesday night as Florida State
routed Savannah State 93-41 to match its biggest margin in 33 years.
The Seminoles (1-1) took a 42-17 halftime lead over the cold shooting
visitors and led 93-39 on Richardson’s last of three 3-point baskets. He
finished with 12 points, Waleskowski added 11 while four players – Michael
Joiner, Antwuan Dixon, Monte Cummings and J.D. Bracy each scored 10 points.
Savannah State (0-2) was led by Armond Burnett’s 14 points. No other Tiger
player scored more than four points.
Florida State shot 51.5 percent for the game, including 50 percent from
3-point distance, hitting a dozen of 24 attempts. It was the Seminoles largest
margin of victory since a 104-52 win over New Hampshire, Dec. 30, 1968.
Savannah State, which finished 4-21 a year ago, made only 23.8 percent of
its shots and was only 1 of 14 from 3-point distance.
The Tigers didn’t score for the first 5:50 of the game and didn’t reach
double figures until there was 5:54 left in the half and they were behind 28-9.
