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.
