TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Bernard James hit all eight of his field goal attempts to score a career-high 16 points Saturday as Florida State captured an 84-71 win over North Carolina State.
The Seminoles (13-5, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 28-19 at the half and never looked back as they followed up Wednesday's 66-61 win over top-ranked Duke with no sign of a letdown.
Florida State shot 54.5 percent (30 of 55) from the floor and all five starters scored in double figures. Michael Snaer added 13 points and Terrance Shannon 12 along with a career-best nine rebounds for the Seminoles, who led by as many as 22 in the second half.
Tracy Smith scored 19 points and Ryan Harrow 17 for North Carolina State (11-6, 1-2), which shot just 38.7 percent (24 of 62).
The Seminoles never trailed and led comfortably throughout the second half on their way to a third straight ACC home victory.
