Florida State 82, Florida 69

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Von Wafer hit six of his first seven
3-point attempts and finished with 20 points Sunday to lead Florida
State to an 82-69 upset over Florida.

Adam Waleskowski added 18 points and reserve Al Thornton scored
17 for the Seminoles, who were coming off one of their worst games
of the season, a 67-50 loss to Louisiana State on Thursday.

Florida State (8-6) led 45-32 at halftime with a 10-0 run over
the final 47 seconds, sparked by Thornton.

Thornton and Alexander Johnson each had nine rebounds and
Waleskowski grabbed eight as the Seminoles finished with a 44-20
advantage on the boards, 16-5 on the offensive end.

Florida (8-3) shot poorly from the free throw line in the first
half, making only two of its first nine and then was unable to get
back into the game in the second half, trailing on two occasions by
as many as 19 points.

The Gators did close within 69-60 on a layup by Anthony
Roberson, who had 22 points. Lee Humphrey added 15 for the Gators.

Florida State shot 51 percent for the game, including 60 percent
from 3-point range, while Florida hit 46 percent, including 41.7
percent from beyond the arc.
