SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Leonor Rodriguez led five players in double figures with 16 points as the Florida State women's basketball team defeated No. 17 Vanderbilt 73-59 Saturday at the San Juan Shootout.

The Seminoles are 5-0 for the third time in four years. The 14-point margin of victory was Florida State's smallest this year, having beaten four straight opponents by at least 30 points for the first time in program history to begin the year.

The loss was the third straight for the Commodores (3-3), all coming at the hands of unranked foes.

Rodriguez hit four free throws in the final 50 seconds to ice the game.

Natasha Howard (15 points), Alexa Deluzio (14), Chasity Clayton (13) and Chelsea Davis (10) also scored in double figures for the Seminoles.

Florida State's Cheetah Delgado, a second generation Puerto Rican, dished out nine assists and made four steals with family and friends in attendance.
