WACO, Texas – Leonor Rodriguez and Morgan Toles each scored 12 points and Florida State beat Princeton 60-44 in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Sunday.
The Seminoles won their 10th straight first-round game and denied the Tigers their first NCAA tournament victory.
The eighth-seeded Seminoles (23-9) returned to the NCAAs a year after a seven-season tournament streak ended. Their last first-round loss – one of just two in school history – came in 1990.
Florida State will play the winner of No. 1 seed Baylor and Prairie View in the second round on Tuesday.
