Box Score: No. 17 FSU 88, Wake Forest 66

It wasn't senior night at the Tucker Center on Wednesday, but it sure felt that way.

Senior center Christ Koumadje recorded his first career double-double, senior forward Phil Cofer scored 13 points, senior guard P.J. Savoy added 11, and senior guard Terance Mann delivered a nice all-around game to lead the No. 17 Florida State men's basketball team to a 88-66 win over Wake Forest.

Koumadje was the focus of FSU's offensive attack from the beginning; he scored 12 points and grabbed eight rebounds in the first half and secured the double-double early in the second. Koumadje finished with 20 points (on 10-of-12 shooting) and 12 rebounds.

Cofer was 5-of-8 from the field (3-of-6 from 3-point range), Savoy was 3-of-4 from long range, and Mann scored seven points while dishing out six assists and grabbing five rebounds.

The Seminoles (19-5, 7-4 in the ACC) have now won six consecutive conference games. It's the first time the Seminoles have done that since the 2011-12 season, when they won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship. That team won seven consecutive ACC games.

Wake Forest falls to 9-14 and 2-9.

Next up for FSU is a three-game road stretch, beginning Saturday at Georgia Tech, followed by trips to Clemson and North Carolina.
