TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Reserves Aaron Thomas scored 19 points and Ian Miller 15 as Florida State defeated Charleston Southern 67-59 Monday night in its final nonconference game of the season.

With Thomas and Miller leading the way, the Seminoles' bench outscored the Charleston Southern bench by a 42-19 margin.

Thomas scored 14 of his points in the second half to help the Seminoles (9-3) stay ahead of the pesky visitors, who closed to within 61-56 with 1:20 left before Boris Bojanovsky's dunk gave Florida State a bit of breathing room at 63-56 with 51 seconds left.

Sophomore point guard Devon Bookert aided the Seminoles with a career-high nine assists and a team-best seven rebounds.

Paul Gombwer and Arlon Harper each scored 11 points to lead Charleston Southern (5-7), which took 29 of its 50 shots from beyond the 3-point arc.

Florida State takes a modest four-game winning streak into its ACC opener Saturday.
