Playing in their second road game of the season Tuesday night, the Seminoles (4-2) lost to Wisconsin Badgers 66-81 in the ACC-Big 10 Challenge.
The Seminoles turned the ball over 21 times as the Badgers (6-1) were paced by Preseason Big Ten Player of the Year Alando Tucker, who scored 22 points.
The Seminoles' own star, senior forward Al Thornton, was hampered by various injuries all night as he was sent crashing to the floor on several occasions. He finished the game with just 10 points - six fewer than his season average.
Picking up the slack for the Tribe was sophomore point guard Toney Douglas. The Georgia native posted a game-high 24 points on 11-of-20 shooting. He was also 2-of-3 from behind the 3-point line.
Junior guard Jason Rich added 12 points and sophomore forward Uche Echefu recorded nine for the Seminoles.
For the game, FSU shot 46.7 percent from the field but just 18.8 percent from 3 and 58.3 percent from the free throw line.
The Badgers won the rebounding battle 31-28.
Junior guard Isaiah Swann was replaced in the starting lineup by senior guard Jerel Allen. Swann finished the game three points on 1-of-9 shooting, including 0-5 from the 3-point line.
Allen had four points, three steals and four rebounds.
