TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Chasity Clayton scored 17 points and Florida State (No. 15 ESPN/USA Today, No. 15 AP) beat Harvard 96-52 on Thursday night.

Courtney Ward and Alexa Deluzio hit back-to-back 3-pointers to key a 14-0 run that helped FSU pull away late in the first half. The Seminoles (17-3, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) led by as much as 47 in the game, smothering the Crimson (9-6, 0-1 Ivy League) on defense.

Deluzio added 14 points for the Seminoles and Alysha Harvin had 13.

Elle Hagadorn led Harvard with 11 points.
