Florida State Uses Strong Second Half To Pull Away From Tulsa

Posted: Updated:

Pat Swilling, Jr., and Scottie Haralson each scored season highs with 19 and 17, respectively, but Tulsa fell to Florida State, 82-63, Saturday afternoon in the 2012 MetroPCS Orange Bowl Basketball Classic at the BB&T Center.

Haralson tallied all 17 points in the second half for the Golden Hurricane, which dropped to 7-6 on the season. Michael Snaer scored 19 points to lead four players in double figures for the Seminoles (8-4).

Tulsa shot 39 percent from the field, including 46 percent from three-point range. Florida State shot 46 percent, including 57 percent in the second half, and outrebounded TU 44-32.

Swilling hit his career-high with five three-pointers and totaled 17 points in the first half, as the Hurricane held a 21-16 lead. TU led 27-22 with 5:34 left in the half, but the Seminoles retook the lead and made a jumper at the buzzer to take a 36-33 lead into the locker room.

Florida State used runs of nine, eight and seven points in the second half to outscore TU 46-30 and pull away to the 82-63 win.

The Golden Hurricane returns home for the first time in almost a month Wednesday, Jan. 2, when it plays host to Buffalo at 7 p.m. at the Donald W. Reynolds Center.
