TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Solomon Alabi scored a career-high 22
points to lead Florida State past Georgia State 62-55 on Tuesday

The Seminoles (8-2) led by as many as 17 points in the second
half, but the Panthers (5-6) cut the margin to four on Trae
Goldston's jumper with 1:43 remaining. Goldston's jumper with 32
seconds left fell short and Florida State iced the game from the
free throw line.

The Seminoles switched between hot and cold for most of the
game. They led by as many as 15 in the first half, pulling away
from the Panthers with a 19-2 run over a 7:17 span. Yet Florida
State scored just seven points in the half's final 9 minutes.

Alabi tied a career-high with six blocks, and freshman Michael
Snaer added 10 points for Florida State, which has won five of its
past six games.

Joe Dukes led Georgia State with 22 points and six rebounds.
