LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Natasha Howard scored 16 points and pulled down 15 rebounds to lead the No. 24 Florida State women over Long Beach State 72-57 Saturday.

The Seminoles (11-1) got 14 points apiece from Yashira Delgado and Morgan Jones as the team shot over 48 percent from the floor.

Long Beach was led by Alex Sanchez' 21 points, while Hallie Meneses chipped in with 15 points. The 49ers (7-5) were held to just 27 percent shooting on the evening, including just 7 of 31 (23 percent) from beyond the arc.

Long Beach State was down by just one with 11:34 left in the first half after a pair of free throws by Meneses, but a 10-0 run by Florida State _ including a pair of jumpers by Delgado _ helped the Seminoles race out to a 14-point advantage at the intermission.

Florida State controlled the boards, holding a 48-31 rebounding edge.
