TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Anthony Polite had a career-high 15 points and Balsa Koprivica added a season-best 14 as No. 21 Florida State pulled away late to defeat Gardner-Webb 72-59. Polite scored in double figures for the fourth straight game. The redshirt junior guard did so just six times in the 2019-20 season. The Seminoles outrebounded Gardner Webb 53-30 and went 24 of 32 from the free throw line to put the game away. Koprivica, a sophomore center, has scored in double figures in four of six games. Lance Terry had 23 points for Gardner-Webb, which did not score in the final 2:42. Terry was 8 of 19 from the floor.
