TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Derwin Kitchen and Bernard James each had double doubles as Florida State overcame a cold-shooting first half and sloppy ballhandling to defeat Hartford 60-38 Sunday night and snap a two-game losing streak.
James had 11 points and 10 rebounds while Kitchen, a 6-3 guard, scored 10 points and grabbed 13 rebounds.
Florida State (6-2) took the lead at 28-27 on Michael Snaer's 3-point basket from the corner with just over a minute to go in the first half. Ian Miller's 3-point shot capped a 31-9 run that put the Seminoles in firm control at 48-33 with 8:05 left in the game.
Hartford (2-6) grabbed an early 19-10 lead midway through the first half on Anthony Minor's layup and still led at 24-17 with 6:54 left. The Hawks scored only 14 points in the final 26:54 of the game and just nine in the second half.
Joe Zeglinski led Hartford with nine points.
