Florida State crosses century mark for second straight game

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State went over 100 points in back-to-back games for the first time in 26 years as it rolled to a 100-71 victory over Detroit Mercy on Sunday.

Dwayne Bacon led the Seminoles with 22 points and freshman Jonathan Isaac got his first double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Terrance Mann (11), Xavier Rathan-Mayes (10) and Trent Forrest also scored in double figures for FSU.

The last time the Seminoles scored in triple figures in back-to-back games was January of 1990 against Southern Mississippi and in double overtime against Jacksonville. The last time they did it in regulation was February of 1989 against LaSalle and Virginia Tech.

Florida State, which was 40 of 70 from the field, is 4-0 for the first time in three years and for the 10th time in coach Leonard Hamilton’s 15 seasons at the school. At one point during the second half it led by 36 as it was on a 20-2 run.

Chris Jenkins led the Titans (1-3) with 16 points and Jaleel Hogan added 14. The game was part of the NIT Season Tip-Off.
