    ORLANDO, Fla. -- Derwin Kitchen scored 16 points, Chris Singleton added 13 and Florida State beat Iona 54-49 on Thursday night at the Old Spice Classic.

    The score was tied 47-all with 2:40 left before Florida State took control with a 6-0 run. Solomon Alabi and Singleton both made a pair of free throws, then Kitchen hit a layup with 24 seconds remaining.

    It was the 1,000 victory for the Seminoles (4-1).

    Iona (3-1) got 12 points from Jermel Jenkins, and Alejo Rodriguez had 10.

    Florida State went up 45-39 with 6 minutes left. Iona, keyed by Jenkins' 3-pointer, scored eight of the next 10 points to tie it.

    Kitchen had five points, including a 3-pointer, as Florida State opened the second half with a 10-0 run to take a 35-24 advantage.

    The Seminoles trailed much of the first half but took a 25-24 halftime lead on Deividas Dulky's 3-pointer.
