TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Solomon Alabi equaled a career high

Thursday night.

Alabi scored all but two of his points in the second half but
got little help as the Seminoles blew a 12-point lead. Alabi, in
one stretch, scored nine straight points including a pair of free
throws that broke the last of two second half ties at 63.

Deividas Dulkys and Michael Snaer each had 14 for Florida State
(9-2).

Frankie Sullivan and DeWayne Reed scored 17 each for Auburn
(5-5). Tay Waller added 15 and Lucas Hargrove had 13.

Waller opened the game with a pair of 3-pointers to give Auburn
a 6-0 lead, but Florida State pulled out to a 33-25 edge at the
half.
