TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Aaron Thomas scored a career-high 26 points as Florida State cruised to a 106-62 victory against Charlotte.
The Seminoles had six players score double-figures, including 18 points in 18 minutes by Ian Miller.
The win was the second in a row for the Seminoles after losing 3-of-4 on a road trip that included losses to Michigan, No. 16 Florida and Minnesota.
"We had a tremendous amount of respect for Charlotte's team," Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton said. "We had to rise to the occasion.
"Tonight our guys played exceptionally well. . This team brought the best out of us tonight."
The Seminoles, arguably, played their most complete game of the season. They dominated Charlotte from the opening tip by jumping out to a 22-5 lead with 11:58 left in the first half. A 3-0 start accounted for the 49ers' only lead of the game.

The Seminoles next play UMass in the Orange Bowl Classic in Sunrise, Fla. on Saturday.
