INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Florida State barely reveled in its return to the Sweet 16 - exactly as Seminoles coach Leonard Hamilton wanted.
Anthony Polite scored a career-high 22 points and No. 4 seed Florida State pulled away in the second half to beat Colorado 71-53 Monday night and advance to the regional semifinal for the third straight NCAA Tournament.
"These guys are pretty focused," Hamilton said. "An indication is that nobody was jumping up and down and high-fiving and getting overly excited in the locker room. Everybody was calm, focused - like we've been here before. That's the signs of a team maturing."
