Douglas' scoring spree lifts 'Noles

TALLAHASSEE — Toney Douglas had 30 points, 12 in the last 4:36 of the first half, and added six rebounds to lead Florida State past Coastal Carolina 82-70 on Saturday.

Douglas scored 20 in the first half, when the Chanticleers led by as many as 15 points. He finished 9-of-15 from the field, including 6-of-9 from 3-point range.

The Seminoles (4-0) had their best outside shooting performance of the season, connecting on 11 of 23 3s (47.8 percent) after shooting just 30 percent during their first three games.

Coastal Carolina (0-3) took a 22-10 lead on Mario Edwards' 3-pointer with 9:15 left in the first half, then went up 25-10 when Logan Johnson hit a 3 with 8:35 left.

The Chanticleers still led 27-13 after Darius Steger's layup with 7:59 left before FSU went on an 8-0 run, capped by Luke Loucks' layup with 5:38 left. Douglas hit four 3-pointers in the final 4:36 of the half, including one as time expired, to give the Seminoles a 45-42 lead.

FSU's full-court defensive pressure forced the Chanticleers into 22 turnovers. The Seminoles recorded nine steals in the first half and 15 for the game. Douglas and Chris Singleton had four steals each.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by the Cubs' Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
