The Florida State bounced back from an unimpressive performance against Jacksonville in their opener, and make quick work of the Central Florida Knights on Monday.

The Florida State Seminoles struggled more than you might have expected in their first game against Jacksonville, but it was a totally different story when they faced the Central Florida Knights on Monday night. They used a balanced attack to upend the Knights, led by Michael Snaer, and ran away to the tune of a 73-50 victory. Our Florida State blog Tomahawk Nation was impressed, particularly with the play of the Seminole defense.

After giving up way too many easy baskets against Jacksonville, Leonard Hamilton promised the fans they'd get a better effort tonight, and he wasn't lying. FSU limited UCF to just 0.73 points per possession, mainly by holding the Knights to 20% shooting on 30 3-pt attempts. As stated in the preview the goal for tonight was holding a good UCF offense to under 0.95 points per possession. Goal accomplished.

There were no real offensive stars in this game, but the Seminoles used instead a a balanced offensive attack and that stifling defense to rout the Knights. For more on this game, head over to the aforementioned Tomahawk Nation.
