TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Seven Florida State players scored in double figures as the Seminoles rolled to a 118-63 victory over Nicholls State on Thursday.

PJ Savoy scored 18 points while Dwayne Bacon and Xavier Rathan-Mayes each added 16 as FSU scored its most points in 15 seasons under Leonard Hamilton. The previous mark was 109 set in last year's opener against Nicholls State. The 55 point margin is the seventh largest in school history.

FSU, which has won five straight to improve to 9-1, has scored in triple digits in three games, which is the most they have had in a season since 1994-95, when they also had three.

The Seminoles had 17 3-pointers -- including six from Savoy -- as they led by as many as 57 late in the second half.

Ja'Dante Frye led Nicholls State (4-5) with 17 points and Jahvaughn Powell added 14 and Johnathan Bell 12.
