Honolulu, Hawaii (AP) - Derwin Kitchen scored 20 points and Okaro White added 19 to lead Florida State to a 70-62 win over Hawaii Wednesday night in an opening-round game of the Diamond Head Classic.

The Seminoles (10-2) advanced to Thursday's semifinal round,
where they will meet Butler, despite shooting just 32.3 percent
from the field against the Rainbow Warriors (7-3).

Chris Singleton grabbed 12 rebounds for Florida State, which
scored 25 points off 23 Hawaii turnovers and held a 48-33
rebounding advantage.

Hawaii, which trailed 33-25 at halftime, cut the Seminoles' lead
to 39-35 with 14:18 to play following Zane Johnson's 3-pointer. But
White scored the next five points, spurring a 9-0 Florida State run
to push the lead to 46-35.

Johnson led all scorers with 24 points. Bo Barnes had 14 points
and Josten Thomas 12 for the Rainbow Warriors.
