    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Cody Eakin Jersey . -- Florida State was happy to play at home after two weeks on the road.The eighth-ranked Seminoles scored the first 10 points and cruised to a 90-41 victory over Western Carolina on Sunday.Its always important to get out to a fast start. It allows the depth of our team to be exceptional, Florida State coach Sue Semrau said after her team won its seventh straight. When you jump out it gives you more confidence.The Seminoles (8-1) led 52-12 at halftime and would lead by as many as 52 points midway through the third quarter.In the Seminoles first nine games they are averaging 44.3 points in the first half and shooting 50.5 percent from the field while holding opponents to an average of 26.6 points.FSU had another balanced attack with four players in double figures. Shakayla Thomas led the way with 18 points and also grabbed six rebounds.It is the fifth time this season the junior forward, who was last seasons Atlantic Coast Conference sixth player of the year, has led the team in scoring.Im more consistent. Defensively I am more aware of different things. I feel like I can guard any position and thats a big step from where I was, Thomas said.Leticia Romero scored 16 points while Ivey Slaughter added 14 and Chatrice White 10.Lauren LaPlant and Hatfield each had 12 points for the Catamounts (3-7), who shot 26 percent from the field.We came out and werent as fired up as we liked to be but we were outmatched to begin with. In the second half they fought back and did the things we wanted them to, Western Carolina coach Stephanie McCormick said.BIG PICTUREWestern Carolina: This was the Catamounts second game in Tallahassee in three days. They got the win over Florida A&M in overtime on Friday night but were no match for the Seminoles. Junior forward Sherae Bonner, who leads the nation in total rebounds with 107, was held to a season-low of two.Florida State: The only thing the Seminoles struggled at was from the free throw line, where they were 17 of 26 (65.4 percent). FSU came into the game ranked fifth in the ACC in free-throw percentage and are shooting 70.4 percent from the line. This is one area it has to improve before the start of conference play later this month.STAT OF THE NIGHTFSU has won by an average of 31.7 points during its winning streak. It has held a lead of 21 points or more in six of the last seven games.LETDOWNFlorida States Imani Wright, who came into the game second on the team in scoring at 13.3 points per game, did not score in 17 minutes played. The junior guard missed all four shots from the field.UP NEXTWestern Carolina: The Catamounts finish a three-game road trip with a Thursday morning game at Radford.Florida State: The Seminoles host No. 19 Florida on Thursday. This will mark the first time in 77 meetings that both teams have been ranked when facing each other.---More AP college basketball at and Joe Reedy on Twitter at Reilly Smith Jersey . The quest begins with what is supposed to be an easy one, although Germany has traditionally been a stubborn opponent to Canadian teams at international tournaments. Tomas Nosek Jersey . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . . There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Jessica Ennis-Hill is nearly certain that this was her last ever heptathlon -- and its tough.Ennis-Hill wiped away tears after losing her Olympic title to Belgiums Nafissatou Thiam on Saturday very slim margin, but she wasnt crying about that.At first she called them happy tears because its another medal, but then acknowledged how hard it was going to be to give up and just how close she was to doing that.I think its a mix of thinking back to the last few years, she said. Im just so emotional and, yeah, Ive just got to make a decision as to whether this is my last heptathlon or not. Im so proud of what Ive achieved the last few years. Ive got to have a think.Judging by the emotion, it looks like it will end in Rio de Janeiro.She looks back on two world titles, and of course the delight of that Olympic gold medal four years ago at her home games in London, when she, Mo Farah and Greg Rutherford delivered three golds for the home fans on what became known as Super Saturday.Farah retained his 10,000 meters title on Saturday in Rio, but Ennis-Hill had silver and Rutherford took bronze in the long jump.It would have been incredible (to all win gold again) and that was a really tall ask for all of us, Ennis-Hill said. But ... weve all produced medals again four years down the line.The 330-year-old Ennis-Hill, now a mother to two-year-old Reggie, missed out on retaining her title by around three seconds in the final event. William Carrier Jersey. Ennis-Hill needed to beat Thiam by 10 seconds in the 800 meters to clinch the gold.I was like `oh god thats so much, she said. But I just thought, Im going to run hard like I always do.She was only about seven seconds ahead at the end, with the 21-year-old Belgian keeping in touch to protect her lead and throw up a big, surprising result. Thiam delivered five personal bests on the way to the title, only six weeks after injuring her elbow.I knew she was going to run hard for that gold medal and not let slip those two days of amazing performances, Ennis-Hill said.There were no gripes about losing for Ennis, but a couple about the schedule. Late nights, then packing up, eating and preparing for the next day, she said she was working on between 4-5 hours sleep for the final day of the heptathlon.Still, its an Olympic silver medal, she said, and she had to enjoy it. More than anything because it could be the last time.I might not do this again, she said, wrapped in a British flag. It is just a really strange part of my career.
