ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Guard Ian Miller scored 18 points and Devon Bookert added 17 as Florida State outlasted UCF for an 80-68 win Wednesday night.

After five straight points out of halftime by the Knights, Okaro White and the Seminoles (2-0) took control. The 6-foot-9 forward, who sat all but six minutes in the first half juggled a pass, collected himself and fired a 3-pointer to ignite a 13-3 run in which he accounted for seven.

White finished with 13 points for Florida State, which shot a rock-solid 49 percent on field goals to the Knights' 39 percent.

Guard Calvin Newell and forward Kasey Wilson led the Knights (1-1) with 15 points each.

The Seminoles, who were making their first trip to UCF, have beaten the Knights in all 10 of the intrastate rivals' meetings.
