Reserve helps lift FSU women past mistakes

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Senior guard Alexa Deluzio had 22 points off the bench, helping the Florida State women overcome a sloppy performance in a 70-54 victory over Charlotte on Sunday.

The Seminoles improved to 7-0 for the third time in school history and have won seven in a row by double figures for the second time. They didn't make it easy on themselves, committing a season-high 22 turnovers and shooting a season-worst 41 percent from the field, though 50 percent after halftime.

"This is our first true road game," coach Sue Semrau said. "I knew it was going to be a different feel. It took us a while to adjust. It's good for us to get this under our belt and find a way to win."
