TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State accomplished something on Sunday that hasnt happened in Leonard Hamiltons 29 seasons and 879 games as a college coach -- hit triple digits in consecutive games.The Seminoles rolled to a 100-71 victory over Detroit Mercy as they were 40 of 70 from the field and had five players in double figures.It is the first time since December of 1996 -- against Jacksonville and Tennessee State -- that FSU has scored 100 or more in back-to-back gamesPart of our plan is to play a lot of guys and hopefully wear our opponents down, Hamilton said. We took them out of their rhythm, got some stops and got out in transition.It is the 15th time -- and seventh in 15 seasons at Florida State -- that a Hamilton team has reached the century mark. He accomplished it six times in four seasons at Oklahoma State and twice in 10 years at Miami.Dwayne Bacon led the Seminoles (4-0) with 22 points and freshman Jonathan Isaac got his first double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Terrance Mann (11), Xavier Rathan-Mayes (10) and Trent Forrest also scored in double figures.FSU scored 100 points despite making just 1 of 14 3-pointers. They were 39 of 56 inside the perimeter and had a huge 78-26 advantage on points in the paint. A lot of the Seminoles paint points came in the transition game as they had 20 fast-break points.Florida State led 48-35 at halftime before Detroit Mercy closed within eight (64-56) with 13:13 remaining on a Chris Jenkins jumper. The Seminoles then put it out of reach with a 32-4 run over an eight-minute span. At one point it was a 22-2 run as they hit 11 straight from the field.Were a pretty good offensive team. We like to get out and run. Thats what weve been preaching along with defense, Rathan-Mayes said. These games we have shown we can play at a really high pace. Were doing what we want to and getting wins while doing it.Jenkins led the Titans (1-3) with 16 points and Jaleel Hogan added 14. The game was part of the NIT Season Tip-Off.We knew that at some point their length and depth can have the propensity to wear you down and we saw that today. Our group has been battle tested against athletic teams but not as much as today, said Detroit Mercy coach Bacari Alexander.BIG PICTUREDetroit Mercy: The Titans, who were picked in the preseason to finish sixth in the Horizon League, came into the game shooting 40.3 percent on 3-pointers but were 8 of 22 (36.4 percent) against FSU. They made just two of their last seven.Florida State: Going into the week, Hamilton said facing Iona, Winthrop and Detroit Mercy -- who are consistently good mid-major programs -- would be a good early indicator of his teams progress. Hamilton has to be pleased as the Seminoles averaged 99.7 points in the three wins and won by an average margin of 21.3 points.STAT OF THE NIGHTFlorida State is 4-0 for the fourth time in Hamiltons tenure but this is the first time it has happened since 2013-14, when it started 6-0.FRESHMAN STANDOUTIsaac had some jitters during his first game against Charleston Southern and scored just 10 points with three rebounds. In the past five games he is averaging 16 points and seven rebounds.Hes a guard at 6-foot-11 that plays very much like Kevin Durant, Bacon said. If youre looking at Kevin Durant right now, hes averaging almost a double-double every game. Jonathan can do that too for us. Hes a guy that can easily get 10 boards just because of how long he is. Hes a guy that can easily score just because of his abilityUP NEXTDetroit Mercy: The Titans finish a four-game, 3,484 mile road trip against New Hampshire on Wednesday.Florida State: The Seminoles travel to Brooklyn, New York, for two games in the NIT Season Tip-Off. They face Temple on Thursday and either West Virginia or Illinois on Friday.---More AP college basketball at http://collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Joe Reedy on Twitter at www.twitter.com/joereedy Womens Running Shoes .

Its sharpness matched my mind. This was no night to go to sleep. PARIS -- Celebrating the best season of his career, Andy Murray cemented his rise to No. 1 by beating John Isner 6-3, 6-7 (4), 6-4 Sunday to win the Paris Masters for the first time.It was his eighth title this year, his 14th in Masters overall. It also ended Isners bid for a first Masters title.I felt really nervous before the match, Murray said, despite having beaten the big-serving American in all seven of their previous career meetings.Murray will officially replace Novak Djokovic at the top of the rankings when they are published on Monday.It might only be for one week. So, I might as well try and enjoy it, Murray said. Because I could lose it at the (ATP) Tour Finals and never be there again.The 29-year-old Murray is still getting accustomed to his newfound status.I dont really know if its sunk in or not, said Murray, who is a three-time Grand Slam winner and a double Olympic champion. It feels different (to) when I had won a Grand Slam or (the) Olympics.Especially in the number of congratulatory messages.More than Ive had after any match I have played in my life, Murray said. Its very nice, because you have won the respect of the players.Murray recently beat Isner 6-1, 6-3 in the quarterfinals of the Erste Bank Open in Vienna, but this was thoroughly contested.We played last week and the difference was huge, Murray said.Using 18 aces and hitting plenty of inside-out winners on his massive forehand, Isner generated considerable pressure.But he also wasted six break points overall.In the second set, he was 4-3 ahead and 40-0 up on Murrays serve, but failed to punish the Briton -- last years runner-up to Djokovic.But in a rare dip, Murray double-faulted during the tiebreaker and Isner profited to take the set.Isner saved break points on his first two service games of the third set, hanging on as Murray restored his superiority.Then, serving to stay in the match, the 2.08-meter (6-foot-10-inch) American double-faulted to trail 0-30. He won a tough first point and then hit yet another ace to make it 30-30.Isner sank a difficult volley into the net, giving Murray a first match point. With Isner on second serve, Murray dominated a brief rally, pinging a pass down the line that Isner patted into the net with the ball close to his body.ddddddddddddIt was a hard-fought victory and Isner stood with his head down at the net, waiting to congratulate Murray.Murray has won four consecutive tournaments, taking his career tally to 43.Next up is the season-ending ATP finals in London, beginning next Sunday.Murray will cross the English Channel to try and take the title there, having secured his top ranking here.This has been an incredible journey to get to the top of the rankings, said Murray, whose brother Jamie is among the worlds best doubles players.There havent been many tennis players from Scotland over the years, and a lot of what we have done is big credit to our parents, Murray said. Our mum was a tennis coach. She helped us learn the game really and helped us enjoy the game at a young age.The 31-year-old Isner, playing in the third Masters final of his career, ends the year without a title.He lost his other final this season to Australian Nick Kyrgios at Atlanta, Georgia, in August.Some small consolation is that he finishes the year with the most aces at 1,159 -- the fourth time he has achieved this.Murray broke Isner twice, the first time to move 4-2 up in the first set.Isner fought back, a booming forehand winner giving him two break points in the seventh game.Murray saved the first one with a lob -- impressive against such a tall player -- and volley. He rescued the second by forcing an unforced error.Serving for the first set, Murray won the first point with an extraordinary backhand retrieve from a speedy Isner forehand that he somehow turned into a cross-court winner.That was pretty spectacular from him, Isner said. He always clamps down on me when I have a bit of an opening.In the second set, Isner got a deserved ovation in the eighth game when he won a 20-stroke rally.Showing nimble footwork that belied his size, he traded shots with Murray, winning the point with a superb drop shot and then a forehand winner from Murrays retrieve.Isner was playing his best tennis of the match and had Murray 0-40 down.Murray recovered but gave Isner another chance at deuce.He missed that chance, too.
