TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Solomon Alabi equaled a career high with 22 points to lead Florida State to a 76-72 win over Auburn on Thursday night.
Alabi scored all but two of his points in the second half but got little help as the Seminoles blew a 14-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.
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.
