GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP)
Chris Singleton

had a triple-double with 22 points, 11 rebounds and 10 steals, and

Florida State beat North Carolina-Greensboro 97-73 on Sunday.

Okaro White and Michael Snaer had 16 points apiece for the Seminoles.

They shot 51 percent (35 of 68), hit seven 3-pointers and never trailed

in starting 2-0 for the sixth straight year.

Florida State had 20 steals and turned 26 UNC Greensboro turnovers into 32 points.

David Williams scored 16 points and Aloysius Henry added 15 for UNC

Greensboro (0-2). The Spartans fell to 1-33 against Atlantic Coast

Conference teams.

Florida State scored the

game’s first six points as part of a 17-6 opening run, a burst capped

by White’s layup barely 7 minutes in. Luke Loucks’ 3-pointer with 10

minutes left in the half made it 22-10 and put the Seminoles up by

double figures to stay.

Singleton had 13

points in the first half for Florida State, which led 46-29 at halftime

and kept the Spartans winless against one of the nation’s toughest

schedules.

UNC Greensboro faces seven teams

from the ACC, and four of those will come to the Greensboro Coliseum —

which for the second straight year will play host to the league

tournament.

Cody Henegar added 12 points

for UNC Greensboro, which fell to 15-5 in home openers since moving to

Division I. The Spartans forced 21 turnovers and turned them into 20

points.
