Florida State Seminoles pull away in second half of 60-38 win over Hartford

TALLAHASSEE — Derwin Kitchen and Bernard James had double doubles as Florida State overcame 26 turnovers and snapped a two-game skid with a 60-38 victory over cold-shooting Hartford on Sunday night.

The 6-foot-10 James had 11 points and 10 rebounds and Kitchen, a 6-3 guard, collected his first career double double with 10 points and a career-high 13 rebounds.

It wasn't easy at the start.

FSU (6-2) took a 28-27 lead on Michael Snaer's 3-pointer from the corner with just more than a minute left in the first half. Ian Miller's 3-pointer capped a 31-9 run that put the Seminoles in firm control at 48-33 with 8:05 left in the game.

Hartford (2-6) scored nine points in the second half, the fewest on the Seminoles homecourt in the past 30 years. The Hawks shot 8.8 percent (3-of-34) in the half, 21.5 percent in the game, and made 1 of 22 3-pointers in the second half. Hartford shot 40 percent in the first half, including 7 of 16 3-pointers.

FSU, which averaged 47.5 points in losses last week to Florida and Ohio State, shot 29.2 percent in the first half, when it committed 17 of its 26 turnovers. Chris Singleton had nine turnovers and just seven points.
