Ojo has double-double as Florida State defeats Winthrop
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Michael Ojo recorded the first double-double of his career – 13 points and 10 rebounds – as Florida State defeated Winthrop 100-86 on Friday.
The 7-foot-1 senior center missed last season due to a knee injury. He surpassed his career high in scoring of 10 in the first half with 11 points as seven came from the line.
Dwayne Bacon led the Seminoles (3-0) with 15 points while Jonathan Isaac and Christ Koumadje added 14 apiece. Junior college transfer Braian Angola-Rodas scored 11.
It is only the fifth time in a regular-season game in coach Leonard Hamilton's 15 seasons that the Seminoles have scored in triple figures. The last time was a 109-62 victory over Nicholls State in last year's opener.
Xavier Cooks led Winthrop (2-1) with 23 points while Bjorn Broman added 16 and Roderick Perkins 11.
