TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - On the heels of three consecutive losses on the road, the Florida State men's basketball team was in need of some home cooking. Perhaps more importantly, FSU needed a renewed sense of intensity and energy. The Seminoles got all three of those things Monday night as they returned to the Donald L. Tucker Center and defeated Charleston Southern, 76-51.
After falling to Harvard (then unranked but now in the top 25 for the first time in program history at No. 24), then-No. 4 UConn and Michigan State in consecutive games in which they averaged just 55 points, the 'Noles nearly hit that total by halftime against the Buccaneers (5-3).
The Seminoles (6-3), who moved to 5-0 at home this season, shot 48.4 percent from the field against CSU compared to the 39-percent shooting average they experienced in the trio of losses.
