TALLAHASSEE -- Antwuan Dixon scored 16 points and had seven rebounds to lead Florida State to a 79-57 win Thursday over Division II Binghamton University.

Dixon scored eight points, including two three-pointers, in a 10-0 run to start the second half as Florida State (3-8) built a 49-25 lead.

The Seminoles used their height advantage and a trapping defense to fluster Binghamton (4-5). The Bearcats shot 33.9 percent and trailed by as many as 31 in the second half.

Seminoles coach Steve Robinson praised Dixon, who scored 14 points and grabbed four rebounds in the second half.

"The way he's been playing has just been really outstanding," Robinson said.

Delvon Arrington scored 14, Adrian Crawford had 13 and Monte Cummings added 11 for FSU. Jeffrey St. Fort led Binghamton with nine points.

Binghamton led once, at 13-12, when Joost Ooms made a three-pointer with 13:07 left in the first half. FSU followed with a 22-5 run.

"We were overmatched physically," Binghamton coach Al Walker said.

FSU FORWARD PLEADS NOT GUILTY: Sophomore forward Rodney Tucker entered a written plea of not guilty to a charge of sexual battery on a physically helpless victim at his arraignment. The first-degree felony carries a maximum sentence of 30 years. A case management hearing was set for Feb. 8, at which time he could accept a plea bargain or have a trial date set. Tucker, 20, has been suspended indefinitely since his arrest Sept. 29, but has been allowed to remain in school and practice with the team. Neither he nor his attorney, Clyde Taylor Jr., attended the court proceeding.
