CULLOWHEE, N.C. -- Alexa Deluzio scored 12 points, and Florida State (No. 14 ESPN/USA Today, No. 15 AP) pulled away late in a 68-48 victory against Western Carolina on Saturday.

Courtney Ward added 11 points and three 3-pointers, and Cierra Bravard had 10 points for the Seminoles (7-1). They never trailed, shot nearly 47 percent and used a big run down the stretch to bounce back from a loss to No. 25 Michigan State.

Diamond Hunnicutt scored 13 points to lead Western Carolina (1-5). The Catamounts shot just 23 percent in the second half but were denied the program's second victory over a nationally ranked opponent.
