TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Leticia Romero scored 19 and grabbed seven rebounds, and Shakayla Thomas added 13 and 10 to lead No. 20 Florida State women to a 58-43 win over Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Romero and Thomas combined to make 14 of 24 (58.3 percent) field goals while the rest of the team shot 26.8 percent.

Florida State (16-2, 3-1 Atlantic Coast) shot 46 percent and forced 13 Pitt turnovers in the first half and took a 32-14 lead into halftime.
