FSU men vs. Stetson

When/where: 7, Donald R. Tucker Center, Tallahassee

Radio: 1040-AM

Records: Florida State 1-0, Stetson 1-1

Notable: The Seminoles, coming off an 87-61 victory over Jacksonville on Monday, play their last home game until Dec. 6, with three road games and three at the Old Spice Classic in Orlando in between. Five players scored in double figures against the Dolphins led by Solomon Alabi, who scored 17, matching his career high, in 22 minutes. He also had eight rebounds and two blocks in that game. The Seminoles are looking to start 2-0 for the seventh time in eight seasons under coach Leonard Hamilton and for the fifth time in a row. Stetson has lost 14 straight against FSU and hasn't beaten the Seminoles since 1975. Freshman Tyshawn Patterson leads the Hatters at 16 points a game and Ridge Graham is averaging eight rebounds a game. The Hatters field a fairly small lineup with only three players taller than 6-5. FSU has hit at least one 3-pointer in 107 consecutive games.
