TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Okaro White had season-highs of 19 points and 11 rebounds and freshman Aaron Thomas added a career-high 17 points in his first college start as Florida State defeated Louisiana-Monroe 63-48 Monday night.

The Seminoles (6-4) played without star guard Michael Snaer, who warmed up before the game but didn't play. Florida State was also without guard Ian Miller (foot).

Trent Mackey had 22 points and Jayon James added six points and 12 rebounds for Louisiana-Monroe (1-6), which had 23 turnovers.

White scored 11 of Florida State's first 17 points, but the Seminoles struggled early, turning the ball over 13 times in the first half.

The Seminoles shot 19 of 47 (40 percent) from the floor. They also made 20 of 24 (83.3 percent) of their free-throw attempts.

Louisiana-Monroe (1-6) led 18-11 with 8:54 until halftime, but Florida State went on a 15-2 run to pull ahead for good.
