Florida State’s Toney Douglas, who scored 26, dunks over Mark Lohuis in the first half.

TALLAHASSEE — Toney Douglas scored 20 of his game-high 26 in the second half and Ryan Reid drew a charging call at the buzzer, preserving Florida State's 79-77 home-opening victory over Stetson on Thursday.

Douglas scored 14 of the Seminoles' (3-0) final 20, capped by a pair of free throws with 1:02 remaining for a 79-75 lead.

Stetson (1-2) cut the lead to two points on A.J. Smith's driving layup with 43 seconds to play, and the Hatters got the ball back with nine seconds remaining after a Jordan DeMercy miss. Smith was driving for the tying basket when Reid stepped in to draw the charge as the horn sounded.

BYU 74, North Florida 41: Jonathan Tavernari had a game-high 25 points in only 24 minutes to lead host Brigham Young over the Ospreys.

Tavernari scored BYU's first seven to lead the Cougars to an early 7-4 lead, then he scored another seven straight early in the second half to push the Cougars' lead to 50-24.

BYU (3-0) held the Ospreys (0-2) to 12 points on 20 percent shooting in the opening half and held a commanding 23-point lead at the break.
