Jalen Warley and Primo Spears each added 12 points and Baba Miller had 10 for the Seminoles.

With 22 points, Chaz Lanier was the only double-figure scorer for the Ospreys, who fell to 0-8 against the Seminoles.

After working their way to a 13-point lead at the break, the Seminoles cruised in the second half, increasing their advantage to 25 points, 74-49, with 8:07 left in the game.

It was 76-49 less than a minute later, and the Ospreys never got closer than the final margin after that.

North Florida shot 40 percent from the field overall (24-for-60), going 6-for-14 on 2-point attempts.

The Seminoles came out firing in the first half. They were 18-for-32 (56.3 percent) overall and 5-for-11 (45.5 percent) from 3-point range in building a 46-33 lead at the break.
