Woolfolk Leads Noles Past Columbus State

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – Sophomore guard Nausia Woolfolk was one of six double-figure scorers on Sunday for No. 18/14 Florida State, helping the Seminoles to a 102-49 win over Columbus State in an exhibition at the Donald L. Tucker Center.

Woolfolk, a Fort Valley, Ga., native, contributed with 18 points and 13 rebounds in 26 minutes of action. The improved two-guard also was perfect from the floor, shooting 6-of-6 from the field and 2-of-2 from three-point range.

“Every year we have speed, but I feel like this year we can make good choices,” Woolfolk said of her team after the game. “We understand each other, so we have that feel of understanding and pushing each other. Even if we make mistakes, that’s OK, we don’t get mad.”

Senior forward and two-time All-American Shakayla Thomas led all scorers with 21 points while adding 10 rebounds for an unofficial double-double. Sophomore guard Nicki Ekhomu attacked all day to the tune of 17 points (8-of-13) and eight rebounds, while redshirt senior guard Imani Wright added 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting.

Redshirt senior guard AJ Alix debuted nicely with the Seminoles, dishing out eight assists to go along with her 12 points. Senior center and reigning ACC Sixth Player of the Year Chatrice White added 13 points, eight rebounds and four blocks.
