TALLAHASSEE, FL - Junior-college transfer Bernard James had a double-double - 15 points and 10 rebounds - and Deividas Dulkys added 12 points as Florida State cruised to a 75-55 victory over North Florida in the season opener for both teams at the Donald L. Tucker Center.

Florida State has won its opener in each of coach Leonard Hamilton's nine seasons.

"I think we did show that we still have a ways to go, by no means are we a finished product," Hamilton said. "I do like this team. I like the parts that we have.

"I feel like before too long we will be a good, solid basketball team. Right now though we are still trying to work some kinks out. But I do like the material we have to work with."

Florida State certainly has athleticism and depth - four players scored in double figures. Derwin Kitchen and Chris Singleton each added 11 points for the Seminoles, while Xavier Gibson and Luke Loucks each added seven points.

Parker Smith had 16 points and Andres Diaz added 12 points for North Florida, which had 22 turnovers.

FSU jumped out to a 42-25 lead at the half as Xavier Gibson, Deividas Dulkys and James each had seven points.

But North Florida chipped away at FSU's lead, cutting the deficit to just five, 50-45, with 10:45 left in the game.

"I don't know what happened; we lost our way," James said. "We just motivated each other to get going again. And we made it happen."

FSU answered right back, as Luke Loucks made a 3-pointer and Singleton dunked after a steal. The Seminoles led 55-45 at that point and were not challenged again as they outscored North Florida 20-10 the rest of the way.

FLORIDA STATE 97, UNC-GREENSBORO 73
11/14/2010, GREENSBORO, NC From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Noles Trounce UNCG, 97-73.

Singleton records third triple double in school history.

GREENSBORO, NC - Junior All-American candidate Chris Singleton had a triple-double of 22 points, 11 rebounds and 10 steals as Florida State defeated UNC Greensboro, 97-73, at the Greensboro Coliseum. Singletons' triple double was the third in school history and the first in ACC history consisting of double figures in points, rebounds and steals. His 10 steals established a single game school record, a personal best, one off the ACC record and were the most in a game by an ACC player since Duke's Kenny Dennard earned 11 steals on Feb. 3, 1979.

Singleton's triple double was the first by a Florida State player since Bob Sura earned 19 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists against NC State on Jan. 15, 1995. The only other triple double in school history was a 12 point, 16 rebound, 10 assist performance by Reggie Royals vs. Georgia Southern on Dec. 1, 1972.

Singleton's steals were the most by a Division I player since Ricky Woods of Southeast Louisiana also had 10 steals vs. Lamar on March 3, 2006. Sophomore Michael Snaer and freshman Okaro White each added 16 points each as the Seminoles improved to 2-0 as they played their second game in three days to open the season.

The Spartans (0-2) were led by a trio of freshman in double figures in their Greensboro Coliseum debuts. David Williams led UNCG with 16 points and Aloysius Henry added 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field. Cody Henegar also had 12 points and nearly had a double-double as he recorded nine rebounds.

In addition to his 22 points, Singleton also had a game-high 11 rebounds and 10 steals for the Seminoles (2-0) to record the first triple-double of his career. Singleton added six assists and four blocks, as well, in the winning effort. Derwin Kitchen was also in double figures for Florida State as he had 11 points on 4-5 shooting.

Florida State played well from the tip as it forced four turnovers on UNCG's first five possessions. The Seminoles jumped out to an early 12-4 lead as Singleton had 10 of the 12 points in the opening 4:14. Florida State continued to take advantage of UNCG turnovers as it turned 26 Spartan miscues into 32 points for the game. The Seminoles continued to build upon their lead in the opening stanza as they went up by 14 at 26-12 on a 3-pointer by Luke Loucks. The Spartans came back with a trey by Brandon Evans and a jumper by Williams to pull within single digits, 28-19.

But that was as close as UNCG would get the rest of the afternoon as Florida State extended its lead to as many as 19 in the first half before taking a 46-29 lead into halftime.

Florida State continues it opening week blitz as they play host to Gardner Webb on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Donald L. Tucker Center in Tallahassee.

11/28/2010, TALLAHASSEE, FL From the FSU Website, seminole.com.

Noles Fall Short Against UF.

Michael Snaer scored 15 points for Florida State.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida's Erik Murphy was in the right place at the right time. Not that he planned it that way.

His putback with 16 seconds left kept the Gators out of trouble after Florida State's Michael Snaer made a 3-pointer and No. 16 Florida beat the Seminoles 55-51. Sunday night.

"Honestly, it was luck," Murphy said. "I just turned around and looked and the ball was falling into my hand. I just went up with it."

Kenny Boynton scored 14 points for Florida and Murphy led the Gators with six rebounds.

Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton expected to see Florida throw a zone defense at his taller club, but he'd hoped his team would handle it better.

"They played us all zone and they don't do that very often," Hamilton said. "They were a lot more aggressive attacking the basket. We didn't attack."

Florida State shot just 33.3 percent against the smaller, quicker Gators and their leading scorer on the season, Chris Singleton, was just 2 of 12 from the field.

"We were struggling to score regardless and I just decided to go maybe with our better defensive team," Florida coach Billy Donovan said.

The Seminoles (5-1) couldn't get over the hump, closing to within a single point on three occasions late in the game - the last time at 49-48 on Deividas Dulkys layup with 2:26 left.

Snaer's career-best fifth 3-pointer of the game cut Florida's lead to 53-51 with 51 seconds left before Murphy's basket. Snaer helped Florida State get back into the game after falling behind by 13 points early in the second half.

"We missed out on a very good opportunity tonight and it's back to the drawing board," said Hamilton, whose Seminoles host third ranked Ohio State in the ACC/Big Ten challenge on Tuesday.

Snaer, who missed just once from long distance, scored 15 points.

"He brought us back basically by himself," Hamilton said.

The Gators (5-1) opened a 53-48 lead with 1:20 left on two free throws by Murphy coming just 17 seconds after two by Boynton.

Florida made 17 of 25 free throws while Florida State scored six points from the line. The Gators also had a 35-31 rebounding advantage.

It was the first real test of the season for Florida State, which won its first five games by an average of 22 points over inferior opponents. The undefeated Buckeyes handed Florida its only loss of the season, 93-75, Nov. 16 in Gainesville.

The Gators led almost from the start, taking advantage of poor Florida State shooting on its way to a 30-21 halftime lead and led by as many as 13, at 41-28 early in the second half. Murphy made a 3-pointer from the top of the circle with 3 seconds left before halftime.

11/30/2010, TALLAHASSEE, FL, ACC-Big 10 Challange From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

No. 2 Buckeyes Top Noles, 58-44.

Freshman Ian Miller led Florida State with 11 points.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Jon Diebler scored 12 points and Jared Sullinger notched his third double-double of the season Tuesday night to lead No. 2 Ohio State to a 58-44 victory over Florida State in an ACC/Big Ten Challenge game.

Sullinger, a 6-foot-9 freshman from Columbus, Ohio, finished with 11 points and 13 rebounds while David Lightly added 10 points for the Buckeyes (6-0).

Ohio State jumped to a 7-0 lead and never trailed, building its biggest lead at 40-23 on William Buford's jumper with 15:45 left in the game.

Florida State (5-2) closed within 49-42 on Deividas Dulky's only 3-pointer with 4:30 left.

Freshman Ian Miller led Florida State with 11 points and Derwin Kitchen added 10 for the Seminoles, who shot 35.4 percent and committed 22 turnovers, including 14 in the second half. Florida State shot 33 percent in a 55-51 loss to Florida on Sunday.

Both teams shot poorly in the early going, but Ohio State's domination of the backboards allowed the Buckeyes to keep a comfortable lead on their way to a 28-17 halftime lead.

Florida State shot just 26.1 percent in the first half while Ohio State was slightly better at 36.7 percent but enjoyed a 25-14 rebound advantage.

Chris Singleton, Florida State's leading scorer, had a second straight cold-shooting game, making just 2 of 9 from the field on the heels of a 2-for-12 showing in Sunday's loss.

Ohio State is 6-0 against Florida State, including consecutive victories in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The Buckeyes won 77-64 in last year's game at Columbus.

After winning its first five games against weaker opponents, Florida State struggled against the Buckeyes as it had Sunday against 18th-ranked Gators.

During a first-half timeout, Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher was presented the trophy for winning the Atlantic Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference. The 20th-ranked Seminoles (9-3) play No. 12 Virginia Tech (10-2) on Saturday in Charlotte, N.C. for the ACC title with the winner advancing to the Orange Bowl.

FLORIDA STATE 75, CLEMSON 69
12/12/2010, TALLAHASSEE, FL From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Noles Edge Clemson, 75-69.

Deividas Dulkys' clutch shooting lifts FSU to victory.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Deividas Dulkys hit three critical 3-point baskets in the second half Sunday to lead Florida State to a 75-69 victory over Clemson in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams.

Dulkys led the Seminoles with 17 points, 13 coming in the second half. His 3-point basket with 3:36 to go gave Florida State a 62-61 lead and another with 1:06 left put the Seminoles up 69-65.

Florida State (7-2) hit six straight free throws in the final 38 seconds to seal the victory.

Dulkys didn't play in Florida State's last game, an 60-38 win over Hartford, after losing a fingernail on his non-shooting left hand in practice.

Chris Singleton added 13 for the Seminoles while senior guard Derwin Kitchen chipped in with nine points, nine rebounds and seven assists.

Demontez Stitt led Clemson with 18 points. Tanner Smith added 13 points, Jerai Grant 12 and Andre Young 11 for the Tigers.

Clemson (5-4) led 34-28 at halftime.

The score was tied four times and the lead changed hands on 10 occasions, the last one at 62-61 on the Dulkys shot.

Florida State regained the lead for the first time in 17 minutes when Dulkys' 3-point basket with 15:31 left put the Seminoles up 38-36.

Florida State shot 43.5 percent (27 of 62) after a 51.6 percent second half (16 of 31) while Clemson hit 40.7 percent of its shots.

The Seminoles got a big boost from its bench with Okara White and Bernard James scoring nine points each.

Neither team shot well in the first half. Clemson hit 37.5 percent of its tries (12 of 32) despite Milton Jennings' 0-for-10 opening half.

Florida State, which connected on only 35.5 percent of his field goal tries in the half (11 for 31), jumped to an 8-2 lead to start the game but then trailed by as many as eight points just before the halftime break.

Derwin Kitchen scored 19 points and Chris Singleton added 17 and 10 rebounds in Florida State's 68-61 victory Saturday over Baylor in the third-place game of the Diamond Head Classic.

Bernard James had 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Seminoles (11-3), who played on Christmas for the first time and recorded their first win over a ranked team this season.

"It's big for us, especially for our confidence," James said. "We've played two ranked teams already and we didn't do so well. This game is going to do wonders for us once we get to conference just because now we know that we can play with and beat a team of that caliber."

It was a disappointing trip for the Bears (8-3), who dropped two straight in Hawaii and three since last Saturday after reaching No. 9, the highest ranking in school history.

"The good thing is it's been against quality teams and we've found some areas that we need to get better," Baylor coach Scott Drew said. "We've found some areas where people have exploited us, and the good thing is now we can return home and practice."

Florida State's scrappy defense and strong play in the middle kept Baylor off-balance. The Bears were held to 33 percent shooting as they couldn't get into their offensive groove. They turned it over late in the game and blew several opportunities.

Drew said playing in a tournament is tough because there is no time to make corrections.

"So we'll get home, we'll work on a things, we'll get better," he said. "We're a very young team and we know our basketball is ahead of us rather than behind us."

LaceDarius Dunn led Baylor with 23 points but missed two key free throws down the stretch. Dunn was coming off a season-high, 29-point performance.

"We knew we weren't going to hold him scoreless, but we just tried to minimize his points as much as possible to make the rest of the team beat us," Singleton said.

Singleton scored six straight during an 8-0, second-half run to give Florida State a 45-35 lead. He added a late 3-pointer to help the Seminoles hold off the Bears.

"Our execution was good, so was our focus and everybody who played tonight contributed," Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton said. "We played with an extreme amount of confidence."

Trailing 20-11, Florida State stepped up its defense and went on a 26-13 run behind James' nine points to take a 37-33 halftime lead. Florida State is 9-0 when leading at the break.

Michael Snaer's 3 made it 29-28, the Seminoles' first lead since it was 5-4.

The Bears trailed by as many as 10 points in the second half, but kept clawing back.

James' two inside baskets, including an alley-oop dunk off a feed from Kitchen pushed the lead 59-55 with 4:38 left. After FSU tied it 59-59 on Dunn's layup, Singleton made a wide-open 3 from the left corner, and Kitchen hit a pair of free throws to make it 64-59 with 2:04 remaining.

Florida State missed three late free throws, including two by Dunn with 41 seconds left. Dunn entered the game as an 88 percent free throw shooter.

Quincy Acy, who had 16 points and five rebounds, was fouled on his layup that cut the lead to 64-61 with 26 seconds left but missed the free throw. That was as close as the Bears got.

The Seminoles outscored the Bears 28-18 in the paint and had a 43-35 rebounding advantage.

Florida State beat host Hawaii in the opener and lost to Butler 67-64 in the semifinals on Thursday. Baylor defeated San Diego in the opening round and lost to Washington State 77-71 in the semifinals.

01/03/2011, AUBURN, AL From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Seminoles Drop One To Tigers.

Florida State Falls At Auburn, 65-60.

AUBURN, AL - Singleton had a game-high 20 points to go along with 10 rebounds, and Derwin Kitchen scored 12 for the Seminoles, who had only lost to No. 2 Ohio State, Florida and Butler entering Monday but added another loss, 65-60 to Auburn.

Freshman Josh Langford scored a career-high 16 points as Auburn notched its fourth win in a row with a 65-60 victory over Florida State.

The Tigers (7-7), whose most significant win entering Monday came against Middle Tennessee State, beat a team that was fresh off a win over Baylor, a 3-seed in last year's NCAA Tournament.

"Since the beginning of the season, we've gotten a lot better," said guard Josh Wallace, who finished with nine points and seven assists. "And it's starting to show."

Florida State (11-4) got off to a frigid start in the first half, shooting 24.2 percent from the floor (8 of 33) and 6.7 percent from 3-point range (1 of 15).

Auburn took a 27-22 lead into halftime thanks to 11 points from Langford, who knocked down 3 of 4 from beyond the arc in the first half.

The Seminoles put together a 9-2 run out of the break punctuated by a Chris Singleton steal and slam to retake the lead, 31-29, with 17:32 to go.

Back-to-back 3-pointers by Allen Payne and Ross, along with a 3-point play by Kenny Gabriel, capped an 11-0 run in 2:28 to give the Tigers their largest lead of the night, 45-36, with 11:15 remaining.

Florida State came right back, ripping off a 10-1 run that ended on a Michael Snaer 3-pointer to tie the game at 46.

Langford hit his fourth 3-pointer of the night to put Auburn up 49-46 with 4:42 to go, and the Tigers put away the Seminoles down the stretch.

"These guys are learning so much, learning how to play hard, together and unselfish," Tigers coach Tony Barbee said. "The biggest part of all that is learning how to win. It doesn't just happen."

Ross scored 10 points and pulled down 11 rebounds, and Rob Chubb added 10 points.

Florida State, which had a marked size advantage over the Tigers, made 5 of 26 3-point attempts on the night.

"I didn't think they took advantage (of their size)," Barbee said. "If they would've thrown it to the block time after time tonight, we would have had issues.

"But I thought we did a good job mixing up our defense. As good as we were defensively, it was a case of them not making shots as well."

Florida State travels to Virginia Tech on Saturday before heading back home to take on top-ranked Duke on Jan. 12.

Auburn heads into its Saturday SEC opener against LSU with four straight wins and a .500 record in tow.

"It's a totally different team than when you look back to the first game of the year," Barbee said. "The guys are understanding that if you play hard you don't always win, but good things are going to happen."

VIRGINIA TECH 71, FLORIDA STATE 59
01/08/2011, BLACKSBURG, VA From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Hokies Down Noles, 71-59.

Florida State's rally effort fell short.

BLACKSBURG, VA - Jeff Allen scored 18 of his season-high 24 points in the second half to lift Virginia Tech past Florida State 71-59 on Saturday.

The Hokies (10-4, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won their sixth straight game, broke open a close contest with a 12-0 run to end the first half and take a 29-19 lead into halftime. They never trailed again.

Allen, who also had 11 rebounds for his seventh double-double of the season, was 7 of 12 from the floor and 10 of 12 from the line.

The Hokies, who were shooting 67.8 percent from the free-throw line coming into the game, made 34 of 37.

Florida State (11-5, 1-1) cut Virginia Tech's lead to 46-42 with 7:32 remaining on a 3-pointer by Luke Loucks, but the Hokies scored the next eight points.

Virginia Tech also got 13 points from Malcolm Delaney and 12 from Erick Green.

Chris Singleton paced Florida State with 22 points.

FLORIDA STATE 66, DUKE 61
01/12/2011, TALLAHASSEE, FL From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Upset Special.

Derwin Kitchen scored 22 points, Chris Singleton added 18 and Florida State snapped No. 1 Duke's 25-game winning streak with a 66-61 victory Wednesday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Derwin Kitchen scored 22 points and Florida State pulled off its latest upset of No. 1 Duke, snapping the Blue Devils' 25-game winning streak with a 66-61 victory Wednesday night.

Chris Singleton added 18 points for Florida State (12-5, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), which made five free throws in the final 33 seconds to hold off the defending national champions. It was the third time since 2002 that the Seminoles beat a top-ranked Duke team at home.

"We came together tonight," Singleton said. "It just feels good. If we can beat them we can beat anybody."

The Blue Devils (15-1, 2-1) hadn't lost since a 79-72 setback on March 3, 2010, at Maryland. From there, they went on to win the ACC and NCAA tournaments for their fourth national title.

The 25-game winning streak was the second-longest in Duke history.

"They're very fundamentally sound. They play outstanding defense and they're committed to it," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "Their defense just dominated our offense for about 25 minutes in the ballgame."

The Seminoles led 28-24 at halftime and by as many as 11 early in the second half, but the game was tight to the finish.

Kyle Singler scored 20 points and Nolan Smith had 19 for the Blue Devils, who missed their first 10 3-point attempts and shot 31.1 percent overall, ending their dreams of a perfect season.

"We have not been in a game like that. They knocked us back," Krzyzewski said. "You just learn from the experience. We have a long way to go."

It was the fourth time Florida State has defeated a top-ranked team, including in 2002 and 2006 against Duke. FSU fans rushed the floor following the final buzzer, making for a garnett-and-gold mob scene at center court, and one was still climbing on the rim 15 minutes after the game ended.

Kitchen, a 6-foot-4 senior guard, scored 17 points in the second half and led the Seminoles with a team-high 10 rebounds for his second double-double of the season.

"I think our guys stuck with our game plan," Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton said. "They maintained their poise. We hit the big free throws down the stretch. I hope they understand now exactly the way they have to play in order to be successful."

Singleton's two free throws with 33 seconds left gave the Seminoles a 63-58 lead, but Smith's 3-pointer chopped the Duke deficit to two with 26.9 seconds remaining.

That was as close as the Blue Devils got. Michael Snaer hit a pair of free throws and Okaro White added another to seal it after Duke misfired at the other end.

Duke came into the game averaging nearly 88 points, having outscored its opponents by just under 25 points per game this season.

Florida State had lost three of four, including its past two games against Auburn and Virginia Tech.

Smith's 3 with 2:26 left pulled Duke to 59-58, but Kitchen countered with a baseline pull-up to give Florida State a 61-58 edge with 2:01 to go.

Singler missed a 3-pointer with a minute remaining that would've tied the score.

Singler didn't get his first field goal until the opening minute of the second half on a goaltending call on Singleton, but then heated up quickly, hitting five of his next six shots from 3-point distance to help wipe out Florida State's 40-29 cushion early in the second half.

Duke caught up with a 13-2 run and tied it at 42 on Andre Dawkins' three free throws after being fouled by Singleton on a 3-pointer. Kitchen answered again, this time with a 3-pointer from the top of the circle, and Duke could never get the lead.

Bernard James put back a pair of offensive rebounds in the final 1:15 of the first half to give Florida State a 28-24 lead at the break.

Duke came into the game shooting just under 50 percent for the season, but went only 9 of 32 for a 28.1 percent effort in the first half against Florida State's rangy defense.

Florida State's 11-6 lead on Singleton's jumper was the largest either team had in a first half that featured eight lead changes and seven ties.

Duke's biggest lead was three points, 16-13 and 24-21.

Noles Top Wolfpack, 84-71.

Bernard James goes 8-for-8, scores career-high 16 points.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Bernard James hit all eight of his field goal attempts to score a career-high 16 points Saturday as Florida State captured an 84-71 win over North Carolina State.

The Seminoles (13-5, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 28-19 at the half and never looked back as they followed up Wednesday's 66-61 win over top-ranked Duke with no sign of a letdown.

Florida State shot 54.5 percent (30 of 55) from the floor and all five starters scored in double figures. Michael Snaer added 13 points and Terrance Shannon 12 along with a career-best nine rebounds for the Seminoles, who led by as many as 22 in the second half.

Tracy Smith scored 19 points and Ryan Harrow 17 for North Carolina State (11-6, 1-2), which shot just 38.7 percent (24 of 62).

The Seminoles never trailed and led comfortably throughout the second half on their way to a third straight ACC home victory.

Florida State had six different players to score baskets in a 12-0 that gave the Seminoles a 28-16 lead late in the half. The Wolfpack had tied the game at 16 on a Lorenzo Brown jumper with 6:17 left in the half.

N.C. State shot just 26.7 percent in the opening half and couldn't handle Florida State's inside game where Shannon's eight points helped the Seminoles outscore the Wolfpack 20-6 in the paint.

Derwin Kitchen, who scored 22 points in the win over Duke, and Chris Singleton each scored 11 points for the Seminoles. Deividas Dulkys snapped out of a month-long shooting slump with eight points, including a pair of 3-point baskets, and 7-foot Jon Kreft added a career-best seven points in relief of James.

The 6-10 James, who is shooting 67.3 percent on the season, scored all of his points close to the basket including several dunks.

Wood, who burned Florida State for 31 points in a Wolfpack victory a year ago, got his first 3-pointer at the 11:11 mark of the opening half and was fouled, converting the free throw for a four-point play. Wood made seven from long range in last year's game in Tallahassee.

Wood and C.J. Leslie each finished with 10 points for the Wolfpack, who won both games against Florida State last season.

FLORIDA STATE 55, MIAMI 53
01/19/2011, CORAL GABLES, FL From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Noles Edge Canes, 55-53.

FSU rallies from 10-point deficit to topple Miami.

CORAL GABLES, FL - Florida State missed its first 10 shots but rallied from a 10-point second-half deficit, scoring 11 consecutive points down the stretch and beating the Miami Hurricanes 55-53 Wednesday night.

Durand Scott missed driving shots on back-to-back possessions in the final 10 seconds for Miami.

Florida State (14-5 overall, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) is off to its best start in the league since 1993. That includes a win over then-No. 1 Duke on Jan. 12.

Miami (12-6, 1-3) shot 1 for 8 over the final 6 1/2 minutes and lost for the first time in nine home games this season. Malcolm Grant scored 20 for the Hurricanes.

Florida State won with only one player in double figures - Terrance Shannon had 10. The game was nearly 10 minutes old before the Seminoles sank a basket, but they trailed only 11-7 because of Miami's sputtering.

Deividas Dulkys' four-point play started the 11-0 run and cut the margin to 48-47. Derwin Kitchen's driving layup gave the Seminoles their first lead, 49-48, and they led the rest of the way.

Florida State missed its final five free throws over the last 1:53 but survived a frantic finish. Grant sank a 3-pointer to cut the lead to 55-52 with 42 seconds left, and when Chris Singleton missed the front end of a one-and-one, the Hurricanes got the ball back.

Scott missed an off-balance layup with 10 seconds left, but Bernard James missed two free throws for Florida State. Scott grabbed the rebound and drove the length of the floor, then missed a reverse layup.

Miami's Julian Gamble grabbed the rebound and passed to Grant, but the buzzer sounded before he could launch a shot.

Florida State has won four games in a row against Miami and nine of the past 10.

Adrian Thomas made a 3-pointer and two free throws on consecutive possessions to give the Hurricanes their biggest lead, 24-12. But after they went up 34-24 early in the second half, Florida State slowly whittled away at the lead.

The Seminoles shot only 32 percent (18 of 56), including 5 for 26 in the first half, when they missed all eight 3-point tries. Singleton, who leads the team at 15.5 points per game, had only eight points and shot 2 for 13 from the field.

Miami played without swingman DeQuan Jones, sidelined indefinitely because of a broken right hand.

Noles Handle Eagles, 67-51.

Derwin Kitchen scores 16 points to lead Florida State.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Derwin Kitchen's 16 points led a balanced Florida State scoring attack as the Seminoles blew open a close game in the second half and defeated Boston College 67-51 Saturday night.

Four players finished in double figures for the Seminoles (15-5, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who share the league lead with fourth-ranked Duke (18-1, 5-1).

Joe Trapani's 19 points led Boston College (14-6, 4-2), which was held to its lowest scoring total of the season.

BC's Reggie Jackson, the ACC's second leading scorer, was scoreless until the final second of the half when sank three free throws after being fouled on a 3-point attempt. The free throws pulled the Eagles to within 29-27 at the break. He finished with 13 points.

Michael Snaer scored 13 points, Bernard James 12 and freshman Okaro White 11 for Florida State.

Clemson Upsets FSU, 62-44.

Noles lose just their second conference game

CLEMSON, SC - Jerai Grant had 14 points, Demontez Stitt added 12 and Clemson knocked off its first ranked opponent under coach Brad Brownell, defeating No. 22 Florida State 62-44 on Saturday.

The Tigers (15-6, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) ran out to 22-6 lead and never the Seminoles get closer than eight the rest of the way. Florida State (15-6, 5-2) had been off to its best conference start since 1992-93 and were tied with Duke for first place in the ACC coming in.

But the Seminoles had no answers for Clemson and nobody reached double-figure scoring. Leading scorer Chris Singleton managed just two points the first 35 minutes. He hit a pair of 3-pointers down the stretch, but those came with Florida State well behind.

Singleton finished with eight points, nearly seven fewer than his average. Bernard James also had eight points to lead Florida State.

The Seminoles, who ended Duke's undefeated season this month, moved into the poll this week as the ACC's other ranked school.

Brownell took over last spring after Oliver Purnell left for the DePaul job. With longtime star Trevor Booker off to the NBA, Brownell figured to have a difficult time installing his motion offense.

However, with seniors Grant and Stitt leading the way, the Tigers have had a surprising start to the ACC season. They rallied from 19 points down to beat North Carolina State, 60-50, at home Tuesday night and kept the run going against Florida State.

Devin Booker, the 6-foot-8 forward and Trevor's brother, hit two wide open 3-pointer and completed a three-point play early in the game. Cory Stanton followed with two foul shots that pushed Clemson to s 22-6 lead with 12:01 to go. Then the Tigers went cold, missing their last 14 shots of the half.

Florida State crept back into the game with a 12-5 closing run. Still, the Seminoles had their struggles that kept them from tightening things up even more.

Singleton didn't play the first half's last 13 minutes after getting two fouls. They had 15 turnovers in the period, more than in each of their past three victories.

Clemson pulled away in the second half. Stitt opened with a driving basket and a 3-pointer. Tanner Smith, a starter who missed the past two games with a knee sprain, nailed a long-range basket.

When Stitt made his second 3 with 12:27 left, the Tigers were ahead 42-20.

Clemson introduced several past players, including longtime NBA standout, Wayne "Tree" Rollins, before the game. The Tigers might have wanted to sneak the 7-footer onto the court to have a chance against the taller Seminoles.

Instead, Clemson played shoulder-to-shoulder with Florida State under the boards. Grant led the way with eight rebounds, including five offensive.

The Seminoles shot just 4 of 17 from 3-point range. They also had 22 turnovers, tied for their second highest total this season.

Balanced Effort Leads Noles.

Five double-figure scorers highlight Seminole rout over Wake Forest.

By Steve Stone, Assistant Sports Information Director

TALLAHASSEE, FL - It was another dominating home performance for the Seminole men's basketball team, which used a 54-point scoring outburst in the second half to break away from Wake Forest, 85-61, on Tuesday evening at the Donald L. Tucker Center.

Lately, FSU has been at its best when at home. The victory pushes the Seminoles (16-6, 6-2) to seven straight wins in Tallahassee, including an unblemished 4-0 mark in the Atlantic Coast Conference. FSU has not lost at home since Nov. 30.

"I thought our players executed a lot better tonight offensively and defensively," said FSU head coach Leonard Hamilton. "I thought Okaro (White) stepped in for Terrance Shannon and did an admirable job. He responded much better in the second half. Ian Miller was confident in executing very well, and we're trying to get Jon Kreft more involved and I liked his presence on the court.

"There were a lot of things we saw that we liked. Halfway through the season we are 6-2 and if there's anything positive that I can take from the first half, we have a lot of room for improvement and I think we can be a better team than what we've showed to this point."

Aside from its hot-shooting second half, FSU forced 24 Wake Forest turnovers, using 27 points off the Demon Deacon (8-14, 1-6) miscues to its advantage. Ten Seminoles made it into the scoring column, highlighted by five double-figure scorers in Deividas Dulkys (16), Bernard James (13), Michael Snaer (11), Ian Miller (11) and Derwin Kitchen (10).

FSU tied a season high with 10 3-pointers made, doing so for the fourth time this season. Dulkys led the Seminoles from long distance with four treys, helping propel FSU to its 51.4 percent shooting in the second half.

The Seminoles have now held 89 of their last 90 opponents to under 50 percent from the field. Wake Forest never developed any consistency on offense until late in the game, shooting 42.6 percent overall.

FSU put its smothering defensive style on display going into the second official timeout, forcing seven Wake Forest turnovers in just over eight minutes of action. In that span, the Seminoles corralled four steals and took twice as many shots as the Demon Deacons while leading 13-9. They entered halftime with a 31-19 lead.

Dulkys' effort on the defensive end guided FSU to a 12-0 run, first coming through with a breakaway dunk off a steal that energized the crowd, and then another breakaway lay-in off another steal to push the Seminoles ahead 21-14.

J.T. Terrell stopped the bleeding with a three-pointer to cut Wake's deficit to 26-17, but the Demon Deacons failed to score over the next 4:36 until a basket-and-foul by Tony Chennault stopped the drought.

Like many teams this season, Wake Forest employed an early zone defense against FSU. Although the Seminoles were only able to shoot 11 of 35 (31.4 percent) heading into halftime, they forced 15 Wake Forest turnovers and held the opposition to just 29.2 percent from the field (7 of 24). Chris Singleton led FSU with seven boards in 19 minutes of action in the game's first 20 minutes, while three different Seminoles in James, Snaer and Dulkys had multiple steals.

Snaer led FSU with nine points on 4 of 9 shooting, while Dulkys came off the bench to spark the Seminoles in the early going with seven points. Tony Chennault was Wake's primary scorer with five points on 2 of 4 shooting.

FSU continued to pound away in the second half, creating difficult shots for an undersized Wake Forest squad. Singleton gave FSU its first 20-point lead at 46-26 on a three-pointer from the corner with 14:38 remaining in the contest. Okaro White, making his first start of the season after Terrance Shannon was forced to sit with a bone bruise, later nailed another trey from the same corner to push the FSU lead to 58-33.

White's triple marked FSU's largest lead in an ACC game since the Seminoles built a 23-point lead against North Carolina on Feb. 24, 2010, a game in which they won 77-67.

A 3-pointer by Dulkys with 9:22 remaining marked his 136th career triple, moving him into seventh place on FSU's all-time Top 10 list for 3-point field goals made.

FSU has now won 11 of its last 14 conference games dating back to last season. Its six conference wins also mark a school record of reaching at least six conference victories in six consecutive seasons.

The Seminoles begin a two-game conference road swing this Sunday at North Carolina at 2 p.m.

NORTH CAROLINA 89, FLORIDA STATE 69
02/06/2011, CHAPEL HILL, NC From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Noles Fall to UNC, 89-69.

Chris Singleton leads FSU with 15 points.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - Freshman Kendall Marshall had nine points and a season-high 16 assists to help No. 23 North Carolina beat Florida State 89-69 on Sunday.

Fellow rookie Harrison Barnes scored 17 points to lead the Tar Heels (17-5, 7-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who led almost the entire way and ripped through the Seminoles' stingy defense to win for the 10th time in 11 games.

North Carolina's 89 points and 56 percent shooting were the most allowed by the Seminoles (16-7, 6-3) this season, as the Tar Heels led by nine points at halftime and by double figures almost the entire second half.

Everything started with Marshall, who was thrust into a leading role with the abrupt departure of junior point guard Larry Drew II from the program on Friday. Marshall's 16 assists were the most by a UNC player in any ACC game and the most since Raymond Felton had 18 against George Mason in December 2003.

It was a strong showing for North Carolina as it heads into Wednesday night's trip to Cameron Indoor Stadium to face reigning national champion and fifth-ranked Duke, particularly since the turmoil that began barely 48 hours earlier.

Marshall had taken over the starting job from Drew after an ugly 20-point loss at Georgia Tech, and the Tar Heels hadn't lost since. Then Drew walked out, issuing a statement without even a word to his teammates while relying on his father--Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew--to tell coach Roy Williams in a phone call.

His departure forced more of a burden on Marshall while forcing sophomore Dexter Strickland to take on more ball-handling duties as well. But Marshall, while playing a season-high 36 minutes, looked completely at ease in the lead role, finishing with three turnovers while directing an offense that hummed almost all game.

Marshall drew the loudest cheers from the crowd during starting lineups, then played so well that the students started chanting his name at least three times during the second half as the lead steadily grew. He left the game to a standing ovation with the Tar Heels up 18 with 1:06 left.

Tyler Zeller and John Henson both scored 16 points for the Tar Heels, while Strickland had 15 points, six rebounds and four assists in a season-high 35 minutes.

Chris Singleton scored 15 points to lead Florida State, which shot 47 percent but struggled to contain Marshall's penetration. Florida State had won the past two meetings--edging the Tar Heels in the 2009 ACC tournament semifinals then winning by 10 here last March--but has never won three straight in the series.

FLORIDA STATE 72, GEORGIA TECH 63
02/10/2011, ATLANTA, GA From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Noles Top Georgia Tech, 72-63.

Florida State improves to 17-7 overall, 7-3 in ACC action.

ATLANTA, GA - Florida State got 16 points from Chris Singleton, 15 from Michael Snaer and used an early 14-0 run to beat struggling Georgia Tech 72-63 Thursday night.

The Seminoles (17-7, 7-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) needed a win to beef up their NCAA resume.

They came to the right place.

For the second straight game, Georgia Tech (10-13, 3-7) had a devastating scoreless stretch in the early going. Last weekend, Clemson put together a 22-0 run on the way to a 65-56 victory. This time, the Yellow Jackets went nearly 7 minutes without scoring, a dreadful display that included 11 straight missed shots and five turnovers.

Iman Shumpert led Georgia Tech with 25 points, and Glen Rice Jr. had 24.

Georgia Tech has lost four in a row and five out of six, putting more heat on embattled coach Paul Hewitt. In addition to poor results on the court, the administration can't be too thrilled about playing one ACC game after another in a half-filled arena.

Florida State turned it over 17 times, letting Georgia Tech hang around despite shooting just 30 percent (23-of-77). But the Seminoles were never seriously threatened by a team with few offensive weapons beyond Shumpert and Rice.

The rest of the Yellow Jackets roster produced only 14 points. None of the other three starters scored at all.

Singleton also had 10 rebounds, while Snaer finished off the Yellow Jackets with a couple of nifty drives in the closing minutes. Okaro White added 12 points for Florida State.

Trailing 17-2, Georgia Tech finally broke the 14-point run with Mfon Udofia's third-try lay-in, following two straight offensive rebounds. The Yellow Jackets finished 7-of-36 in the first half, not even cracking 20 percent from the field. But at least they had plenty of chances to pad their rebounding stats in the opening half, actually grabbing more at the offensive end (15) than they did on the defensive side (11).

Florida State led 30-18 at the break, and Georgia Tech never got closer than seven the rest of the way.

FLORIDA STATE 63, VIRGINIA 56
02/12/2011, TALLAHASSEE, FL From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Noles Hold Off Virginia, 63-56.

Michael Snaer scores 16 points.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State held off Virginia 63-56 Saturday, but lost star Chris Singleton with a fractured right foot.

The 6-foot-9 Singleton, the Seminoles' top scorer and rebounder, will have surgery Monday, coach Leonard Hamilton said.

Michael Snaer scored 16 points, including four straight free throws in the final 20 seconds, when Florida State repelled a late Virginia rally.

Singleton, last year's Atlantic Coast Conference defensive player of the year, already had 11 points when he was hurt 10 minutes into the game. He scored Florida State's first nine points before Xavier Gibson's put-back with 11:36 left in the half.

Florida State (18-7, 8-3 ACC) led 34-23 at halftime on its way to a second ACC win in less than 48 hours and fifth straight over the Cavaliers. The Seminoles were coming off a 72-63 win Thursday night at Georgia Tech.

Virginia (12-12, 3-7 ACC) fought back from a 16-point deficit in the second half and pulled to within 56-53 with 1:11 left on Joe Harris' short running jumper.

But Bernard James' baby hook with 37 seconds left provided Florida State a bit of breathing room and Snaer took care of the rest with his free-throw shooting.

Sammy Zeglinsky scored 19 points and Harris 17 for Virginia, which lost for the fourth time in five games. The two Cavalier snipers combined to make 9 of 20 tries from 3-point range.

But aside from Harris and Zeglinsky, the Cavaliers shot only 20 percent (6 for 30) and were beaten on the boards 40-29.

Snaer and James grabbed eight rebounds apiece for the Seminoles, who shot 44.7 percent and the 6-10 James blocked five shots.

The Seminoles, who are after their third straight 20-win season and third consecutive year with 10 wins in the ACC, tightened their grip on third place. The top four regular-season finishers earn opening-round byes in next month's conference tournament at Greensboro, N.C.

FLORIDA STATE 84, WAKE FOREST 66
02/19/2011, WINSTON-SALEM, NC From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

FSU Topples Wake Forest, 84-66.

Bernard James leads balanced effort with 15 points.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - Bernard James scored 15 points while Florida State pulled away in the second half to beat Wake Forest 84-66 on Saturday.

Freshman Ian Miller and Deividas Dulkys each added 14 for the Seminoles (19-7, 9-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who stayed in sole possession of third place in the league by dominating the last-place Demon Deacons (8-19, 1-11) after the break.

Florida State trailed by two at halftime before using a 13-2 run to push ahead by double figures, then the Seminoles steadily increased the margin by attacking the rim while Wake Forest seemed to grow steadily more passive.

In many ways, it was reminiscent of Florida State's 85-61 home win against the Demon Deacons on Feb. 1. In that game, the Seminoles scored 54 points in the second half, scored 27 points off 24 turnovers and took a 47-33 rebounding advantage that led to 21 second-chance points.

This time, the Seminoles shot 53 percent in the second half and scored 53 points after the break. In addition, after the Demon Deacons protected the basketball and stayed relatively even on the boards in the first half, the Seminoles controlled the boards while scoring 18 points off nine turnovers after halftime.

Florida State also kept getting point-blank looks by driving the ball into the paint, with Miller's basket in transition over Ty Walker capping the 13-2 run that gave the Seminoles a 50-39 lead with 12:18 left.

A few minutes later, Okaro White (13 points) had a sequence that illustrated FSU's attacking mindset. First came his reverse layup in traffic while drawing a foul for a three-point play. Then he stole the inbound pass and beat two Demon Deacons to a loose rebound while falling out of bounds before driving by Travis McKie for a layup to end that possession.

Minutes later, Michael Snaer assisted on White's short jumper from the left corner, then assisted on James' layup to make it 67-47 with 6:24 left.

By that point, the Seminoles were on their way to an eighth win in 10 games while sending the Demon Deacons to yet another ugly finish.

McKie had 20 points to lead Wake Forest, which shot just 33 percent. The Demon Deacons - the ACC's best free-throw shooting team - managed to offset that early by making 14 of 15 from the line to lead for much of the first half. That included a bizarre final sequence of the opening half in which Florida State's Terrance Shannon fouled J.T. Terrell on a hurried 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left.

Terrell made all three free throws for a 33-31 lead, but the freshman followed that by trying to steal the Seminoles' fullcourt heave and fouling Dulkys as he tried his own desperation shot with 0.1 left on the clock. But Dulkys missed the first two shots before making the third, sending the Demon Deacons into the locker room with a 33-31 lead.

But the Seminoles, who opened the game by missing 10 of 12 shots to give the Demon Deacons some early confidence, quickly asserted themselves in the second half to take back control.

MARYLAND 78, FLORIDA STATE 62
02/23/2011, COLLEGE PARK, MD From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Noles Fall to Terps, 78-62.

Derwin Kitchen collects 16 points, seven boards and six assists.

COLLEGE PARK, MD - Freshman Terrell Stoglin scored 17 points, and Maryland used a strong second half to beat Florida State 78-62 Wednesday night.

The Terrapins (18-10, 7-6) had five players score in double figures. Jordan Williams had 11 points and 11 rebounds, Dino Gregory scored 14, Adrian Bowie added 12 and Sean Mosley chipped in 10 in Maryland's eighth straight home win over Florida State.

It was the 21st double-double of the season for Williams, who became the seventh sophomore in ACC history to collect at least 600 rebounds in his career.

Derwin Kitchen scored 16 and Deividas Dulkys had 14 points for the Seminoles (19-8, 9-4). The loss dropped Florida State three games behind first-place Duke with three games to play.

The Seminoles played again without junior forward Chris Singleton, who broke his foot on Feb. 12 during a win over Virginia. Singleton is the only player on the Florida State roster averaging double figures in scoring.

Maryland opened the second half with a 22-10 run to go up 60-47 with 10:23 left. Stoglin and Gregory each scored seven points in the surge and Williams contributed two baskets and a free throw.

Florida State would not reach the 60-point mark until there was less than two minutes to go.

Maryland shot 52 percent (25 of 48) against the nation's top-rated team in field goal percentage defense. It was only the second time this season a team made at least half its shots against the Seminoles.

After leading by seven and trailing by nine, the Seminoles ended the first half with a 10-2 run to close to 38-37.

Florida State raced to a 9-2 lead behind Dulkys, who hit a pair of 3-pointers and a three-point play in the opening two minutes. Dulkys came in averaging 7.6 points per game.

Hounded underneath the basket by the Seminoles' big men, Williams went more than eight minutes before getting off his first shot. He was fouled on the play and made two free throws to spark 6-0 spurt that put the Terrapins up 19-18.

Minutes later, Williams and freshman Pe'Shon Howard each scored three points in an 8-1 spree that made it 34-25.

FLORIDA STATE 65, MIAMI 59
02/26/2011, TALLAHASSEE, FL From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Noles Hold Off Miami, 65-59.

Okaro White and Deividas Dulkys put up 17 points each.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Okaro White and Deividas Dulkys scored 17 points apiece and Florida State held off a furious Miami finish to escape with a 65-59 victory Saturday for its 20th win of the season.

White, a freshman starting in place of injured Chris Singleton, knocked down a 10-foot jumper with 31 seconds remaining that gave Florida State a 64-59 lead after Malcolm Grant's 3-point shot 25 seconds earlier moved the Hurricanes to within 62-59.

White hit 6 of 11 shots and grabbed seven rebounds while Dulkys connected of 4 of 8 attempts from 3-point range.

Grant led Miami with 19 points and 6-foot-10, 300-pound center Reggie Johnson added 17 points and 12 rebounds. Miami shot just 31.7 percent (20 of 63).

Miami (17-12, 5-9 Atlantic Coast Conference) fought back from a 22-point, first-half deficit.

Florida State (20-8, 10-4) won for the second time in three games since losing Singleton - its scoring leader this season - to a broken right foot two weeks ago. It marked Florida State's third straight season with at least 20 wins and 10 in ACC play.

Florida State led by double figures through much of the contest, including 61-50 with 4:06 left.

The Seminoles jumped to a 16-2 lead on their way to a 36-16 halftime cushion and a fifth straight victory over Miami. Dulkys and Michael Snaer each nailed a pair of 3-pointers that catapulted the Seminoles into the 14-point lead six minutes into the game.

Miami's 16 points at the break was the fewest Florida State has allowed in the first half this season.

Grant, Miami's top scorer this season, didn't get his first field goal until midway through the second half before heating up.

Florida State was as hot in the first half as Miami was cold, shooting 58.3 percent to the 'Canes' frigid 17.2 percent. Miami made just 3 of its first 20 shots, falling behind by as many as 22 points in the opening half.

In its two losses to Florida State this season, Miami managed to shoot only 32.7 percent against the rangy Seminole defense. Florida State rallied from a 10-point deficit to win 55-53 at Miami last month in a cold-shooting contest when the Seminoles shot 32.1 percent and Miami 34 percent.

Florida State honored its 1972 team that was the NCAA runner-up to UCLA during a halftime ceremony.

NORTH CAROLINA 72, FLORIDA STATE 70
03/02/2011, TALLAHASSEE, FL From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Seminoles Lose To No. 13 Tar Heels On Last-Second Shot, 72-70.

Derwin Kitchen scored 13 points for Florida State.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - It will be a while before Florida State fans forget Harrison Barnes.

The 18-year-old North Carolina freshman coolly hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 3 seconds to play that gave the 13th-ranked Tar Heels a 72-70 victory and silenced a boisterous Seminole crowd.

"Great players make great plays," Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton shrugged. "That's about as good as it gets."

But it wasn't anything unusual for Barnes, who has made the game-winning or go-ahead shot in five games this season.

"I've always been comfortable taking the last-second shot," said the soft-spoken Barnes, who is from Ames, Iowa. "I'm glad Coach gave me the opportunity and I came through."

Barnes was supposed to drive to the basket, but decided to pull the trigger from long range after he briefly surveyed the defense.

"They had three guys high so I knew it was going to be a jump shot, because it would be hard to get to the rack," he said.

"You can't really second-guess yourself," Barnes said. "You have to go with the first instinct."

Florida State's Michael Snaer blamed himself for letting Barnes get a solid look.

"I just gave him too much breathing room," Snaer said.

John Henson had 19 points and 12 rebounds and Barnes added 18 points for the Tar Heels (23-6, 13-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won their sixth straight game overall and their fifth in a row on Florida State's court.

North Carolina took the lead midway through the second half and was up 67-60 on Kendall Marshall's 3-pointer with 3:59 left. Florida State rallied to take a 70-69 lead with 18 seconds left on two free throws by Derwin Kitchen, who led the Seminoles (20-9, 10-5) with 13 points.

"We certainly gave them some opportunities and they took advantage," North Carolina coach Roy Williams said.

Florida State turned the ball over before getting off a final shot after Barnes' game-winner.

The Tar Heels can clinch the top seed in next week's ACC tournament win a win over No. 4 Duke on Saturday. Florida State finishes its regular season Sunday at North Carolina State.

Leslie McDonald added 10 points for North Carolina, including two 3-pointers 43 seconds apart that gave the Tar Heels a 49-44 lead with 14:18 left.

Snaer added 11 points and Bernard James had 10 for the Seminoles, who were without top scorer Chris Singleton (broken right foot) for the fourth straight game.

Florida State led 38-37 after a first half that saw both teams shoot 16 of 31 from the field and had nine lead changes and nine ties.

Henson, a 6-foot-10 sophomore from Tampa, had a big first half with 12 points, six rebounds and three blocked shots while Florida State answered with strong play from its bench players, who outscored the Tar Heel reserves 20-5.

North Carolina shot 47.3 percent for the game and had a 39-28 rebound advantage.

One of those Seminole backups, freshman Ian Miller, nailed a 3-pointer from the corner midway through the first half that gave Florida State its largest lead of the game at 26-19.

Florida State was attempting to finish a perfect ACC season at home for the first time since coming into the conference for the 1991-92 season.

Barnes had 17 points and 10 rebounds in the Tar Heels' 89-69 home victory over Florida State 24 days ago.

The Seminoles Take Down the Wolfpack, 72-62.

Florida State heads into Friday's game as the #3 seed.

RALEIGH, NC - Derwin Kitchen had 17 points and matched a career high with 13 rebounds to help Florida State beat North Carolina State 72-62 on Sunday.

Bernard James added 14 points for the Seminoles (21-9, 11-5 Atlantic Coast Conference), who won three of five to close the regular season while top scorer and rebounder Chris Singleton sat out with a broken right foot. It marked only the third time in program history that Florida State has won 11 ACC games in a season and the first since winning 12 in 1993.

Freshman C.J. Leslie had 12 points to lead the Wolfpack (15-15, 5-11), who trailed most of the day and made a push to take a one-point lead with about 8 minutes left. But Kitchen scored a pair of baskets to put the Seminoles ahead for good, sealing a season sweep of N.C. State.

The Seminoles were already locked into the No. 3 seed and are headed to the NCAAs with hopes that Singleton will return, so there wasn't a lot at stake for them in this game.

Florida State led for the first 30 minutes, scoring the first seven points and leading by 13 in the first half before taking a 41-33 halftime lead.

Then, after the Wolfpack rallied into the lead, Kitchen and the Seminoles confidently answered right back.

First, Kitchen recovered a loose ball in the lane and scored a layup for the 56-55 lead with 6:50 left. He followed that by driving by two defenders for a layup.

Then, after Michael Snaer knocked down a jumper from around the foul line, Kitchen hit a jumper over Ryan Harrow to push the lead to 62-56 with 4:50 left.

N.C. State got no closer than four again, with the Seminoles stretching the lead back out in the final 2 minutes to send the home fans to the exits.

VIRGINIA TECH 52, FLORIDA STATE 51
03/11/2011, ACC, Greensboro, NC From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Florida State Edged Out by Virginia Tech, 52-51 in the Quarterfinals.

GREENSBORO, NC - Erick Green hit the go-ahead jumper with 4.7 seconds left, while Derwin Kitchen's desperation shot at the buzzer was waved off as Virginia Tech edged Florida State 52-51 in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament Friday night.

Green was just 1 for 12 from the field for the sixth-seeded Hokies (21-10) before taking a feed from Malcolm Delaney and calmly sinking a jumper near the 3-point arc. The third-seeded Seminoles (21-10) called timeout and inbounded to Kitchen, who dribbled into the right corner before launching a fadeaway over a defender at the horn.

The ball dropped through the net and the officials initially called it good, sending the Seminoles spilling oncourt to mob Kitchen. Meanwhile, Delaney and Green walked to midcourt with their hands on their heads in disbelief.

But officials soon reviewed the replays and reversed the call.

FLORIDA STATE 57, TEXAS A&M 50
03/18/2011, NCAA, Chicago, Il From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Zoned In.

Rarely used scheme ignites Seminoles into third round of the NCAA Tournament.

Elliott Finebloom Seminoles.com

CHICAGO, IL - Florida State head coach Leonard Hamilton did not like what he saw from his 10th-seeded Seminole basketball team in the first half of FSU's game versus Texas A&M. So he decided to do something he has rarely done this season and switch to a zone defense. That change resulted in a 34-24 second half for the Seminoles (22-10) as they downed the higher-seeded Aggies 57-50 in second round NCAA Tournament play in Chicago. The Seminoles will now advance in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1998 and face second-seeded Notre Dame Sunday.

"We don't use very many possessions of zone in our defensive schemes, but we felt that they were doing such a good job executing, we had a hard time keeping them in front of us," said Hamilton. "So we thought just a change would be good for our defense, even if we had to go back to our man to man. They hit a couple shots versus the zone, but it seemed as though it was the right thing to do during that time. It was taking some time off the clock. They were not getting the ball inside to (David) Loubeau as much as they had wanted. So we stuck with it, and it worked out for us."

The three-two zone defense helped FSU limit Texas A&M (24-9) to just 27% from the field in the second half and just over 28% from behind the arc, where Texas A&M especially hurt the Seminoles in the first half converting on 5 of 11 attempts. The zone defense coupled with the play of first-time NCAA Tournament participant Bernard James was the difference in the game.

After breaking out to an early 7-0 lead, FSU was trailing 26-23 heading into the second half and things got even worse as Texas A&M eventually broke out to a 31-23 lead. That is when James sparked a 13-0 run scoring eight of those 13 points while making four consecutive buckets at one point. After spending six years in the U.S. Air Force James started slowly in his first ever NCAA Tournament but ended up being one of the biggest difference makers in the win.

"Bernard is -- this is all new to Bernard," said Hamilton. "We have freshmen on our team that actually have more experience than him. He's a very humble person. He's extremely unselfish. He doesn't need a lot of touches in order for him to feel like he's contributing. But he wasn't following the game plan the first half. I didn't think he did a very good job of running the floor. I didn't think he did a very good job of posting up strong. I just didn't think he was doing what we needed him to do."

That all changed in the second half as James came up big again and again on both the offensive and defensive side of the court. The junior forward finished second on the team in points with 10 and second in rebounds with six. He also led the team with three blocks as he exerted himself inside the paint.

"That was the game plan from the beginning was to try to throw it down low and get their bigs in trouble," said James. "We didn't do a very good job, the bigs, we didn't do a very good job posting up and just getting the position we wanted to and calling for the ball in the first half.

"Coach Ham (Hamilton) just called us out in the locker room, and when we come back out, we were a little more aggressive and focused on getting where we wanted to."

James didn't do it alone as he had plenty of help from Derwin Kitchen who lead the team with 15 points and seven assists. The entire squad also got a lift from the return of Chris Singleton who played for the first time since injuring his foot versus Virginia February 12. The ACC coaches' Defensive Player of the Year finished with five points, two rebounds, an assist and a block.

"I'm a confident player, so I'm pretty much -- I'm sure of myself," said Singleton. "Every time I step out on the floor, I don't think anything's going to happen. But with injuries, you never know what's going to happen.

"I could have a setback, but I wasn't thinking about that. I'm looking forward, not behind."

Singleton did not check into the game until 7:35 was remaining in the first half and the Seminoles were holding on to a 14-12 lead. The move to allow Singleton to return to the game was one Hamilton agonized over for fear of causing further damage to Singleton's foot.

"I just -- I was uncomfortable with just whatever level of risk that we were taking," said Hamilton. "It's important to me that, when these guys come to school, that they get their education and they create an avenue by which they can have a better way of life. And I realize that he has an opportunity to play at the highest level, and I didn't want to do anything to jeopardize that.

"We wanted to win the basketball game, and I want him to -- I wish we could have gotten through this game and won a couple more games and got a little more time under our belt. But he convinced me that he was fine, that he really wanted to play, and he'd worked so hard and been so aggressive with his rehab, doubling up on all of his rehabs."

Singleton will only have one day to rest his foot as the Seminoles will look to make a trip to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1993 as they face a Fighting Irish squad coming off an impressive opening round victory over Akron and boasting a 27-6 record. This will be the first ever meeting between the two schools on the hardwood.

"I believe Notre Dame led one of the top two scoring teams in the Big East, I believe," said Hamilton. "I think they might have been the best three-point field goal percentage shooting team in the Big East, I believe. I try not to ever start on another team until I complete one game. I always have another coach doing that.

"But I watched them, and they run an excellent offense, a very unique offense, kind of the way a lot of teams in Indiana, a lot of high schools, University of Indiana. Motion offense is kind of a traditional offense in the State of Indiana. And I think they do a great job of creating all different type of defensive scenarios for you to deal with."

FLORIDA STATE 71, NOTRE DAME 57
03/20/2011, NCAA, Chicago, Il From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Noles Head to Sweet 16 After Dominating Notre Dame, 71-57.

Bernard James scored 14 points, Michael Snaer added 13.

CHICAGO, IL - The United Center was supposed to be a home court advantage for second-seeded Notre Dame but it turned into Cinderella's castle Sunday night as No. 10 Florida State (23-10) and No. 11 VCU each advanced to the Sweet 16 where they will meet Friday. The Seminoles upset the fourth-ranked Fighting Irish (27-7) thanks to a deadly combination of their typical suffocating defense and a hot night shooting from the outside in a one-sided 71-57 victory.

For the Seminoles this is the lowest seeded FSU team to ever advance to the Sweet 16 and the school's first ever win over a team seeded as high as No. 2. The last time FSU advanced to the Sweet 16 in 1993 the squad entered the tournament as a No. 3 seed. It also ties the deepest NCAA Tourney run ever for a Leonard Hamilton coached team.

"It means the progress that we have been making will obviously receive a certain level of recognition and I also feel that our players will feel better about themselves and their hard work is paying off," said head coach Leonard Hamilton when asked about the significance of Florida State's Sweet 16 trip. "For me personally as a coach, I felt all along we could get to this point, but I also feel we can be a lot further along than we are."

Entering Friday night's game with Notre Dame the biggest question was how would the Seminoles defense do against the sharp shooting Irish but it was the Florida State offense that became the storyline. Not only did the Seminoles shoot nearly 46% for the game but the Seminoles also converted on 9 of 19 threes.

"We played a lot of inside-out, you know the bigs on our team, we have kind of struggled this year as far as posting up and doing what we need to do on the offense," said Bernard James. "I think we executed pretty well tonight, catching the ball and kicking it out when they covered down. When our guys get spot-up threes they are pretty good at knocking them down. Once they got on a roll they just kept going."

While the offense excelled, the Seminole defense was humming along at its usual stingy pace. The Irish flirted with a new season low for points in the first half. The fewest points scored by Notre Dame in the opening half was 19 versus St. Johns, mustering just four more in Sunday night's game. Notre Dame's season low shooting percentage in the first half was 28.1% versus Cal and the Irish barley eclipsed that mark against the Seminoles converting on just 30% of their shots in the first 20 minutes. Even more impressively Notre Dame came in shooting nearly 40% from behind the arc but was limited to just 1-10 shooting from three point range in the opening 20 minutes.

Things didn't get any better for the Irish in the second half. For the game Notre Dame shot just 30.6% from the field and only 23.3% from three point range. A major accomplishment for the Seminoles considering all five Irish starters shoot better than 40% from behind the arc.

Despite the lopsided shooting numbers and a 23 point second half lead, Notre Dame closed the gap to 12 points but Florida State seemed to find an answer every time Notre Dame began to turn the tide. With 5:35 remaining Notre Dame got to within 13 but a 5-0 FSU run seemed to suck the life out of the Irish and the Notre Dame heavy crowd that began to turn for the exits as the clock ticked under 3:30.

"The momentum was on their side, it was basically a home game for them," said Derwin Kitchen. "The crowd got so loud when they got it down to 12. I got fouled and made a few free throws and kind of quieted the momentum down and we took care of the rest."

The Seminoles will head to San Antonio for a first ever meeting with the darling of the NCAA Tournament Virginia Commonwealth who had to win a play in game and has now moved on to the Sweet 16 in what will be the first ever match-up of 10 and 11 seeds.

Magic Run Ends In OT Thriller.

Seminoles see trip to Elite 8 slip away in final seconds of overtime with 72-71 loss.

SAN ANTONIO, TX - For the 10th-seeded Florida State Seminoles their road to the Elite Eight was just 7.9 seconds away. After trailing for nearly the final 11:00 of the second half, Chris Singleton hit a three-pointer with 45 seconds remaining in regulation to send FSU's Sweet 16 matchup with VCU to overtime. Then with 7.9 seconds left in the extra period the Seminoles were in front 71-70. That is when VCU's Bradford Burgess slipped away from standout senior Derwin Kitchen to hit the game-winner, ending the Seminoles magical run in a 72-71 loss.

"It was a mistake on me," said Kitchen following the loss in which he led the team with 23 points and 12 rebounds. "I was guarding Burgess and I turned my head the wrong way and he slipped, not knowing that the basket was going to be wide open. I thought we had somebody under. But I turned my head the wrong way and he slipped and he got a clean look at the basket."

The Rams used one of the best shooting night's of any FSU opponent this season to move into the Elite Eight. VCU connected on 12 three-pointers during regulation, tying the most that FSU allowed in any game in 2010-11, and the squad shot nearly 42% for the game. All this against an FSU team that came in to the night allowing teams to connect on just 36% from the field and only 30% from behind the arc.

"In the first place they hit some really tough shots, some shots when they were heavily contested," said FSU Head Coach Leonard Hamilton. "A percentage of those shots I didn't think we did a very good job of getting hands in their faces. A couple of shots they hit that were almost from the parking lot. They were way beyond NBA range, maybe three or four of them were almost out of bounds.

"But they are, for that kind of a shooting team, we had a clear understanding of that coming in. I think it's a combination of them being good three point shooters, a combination of them making some tough shots. And also I didn't think that it was one of our better nights in terms of defending the ball screen and getting back to their shooters. And there lies a 12 of 26 from three, 46 percent from the three point line. Sometimes you have to give teams credit."

Covered up in the heartbreak of the OT loss was the way the Seminoles clawed and fought their way back into the game after shooting just 30% in the first half compared to 50% for VCU. Missed opportunities early in the contest kept the game close instead of allowing the Seminoles to build an early lead.

"I thought we dug a hole for ourselves in the first half, about nine point blank missed layups," said Hamilton. "...When we had 14 off of rebounds and nine layups that we just couldn't complete. Then the first half to be only down five, I felt pretty good."

The missed buckets inside didn't put FSU too far behind but it did prevent them from putting together a lead of their own heading into half rather than trailing by five. It also would have meant that the squad would not have to dig out of a nine-point hole with 7:37 left but thanks to a 12-3 run to end the second period FSU got a second chance to move on in the tournament.

"We had a chance to go down by ten when Joey Rodriguez was at the line," said Singleton who played his most minutes since returning from injury. "He missed two free throws and came down and scored. And before that there was a timeout, we knew the only way to get back in the game with seven minutes to go. We knew we had to rely on our defense to get stops to try to execute on the offense."

Both things happened down the stretch as the defensive intensity was ratcheted up and the offense came to life as the Seminoles missed just ten second half shots compared to 30 in the first 20 minutes, setting the stage for Singleton to hit a three that sent the game into OT.

In the extra period VCU led for a majority of the time until a late Seminole bucket by Singleton put FSU in front with 29 seconds remaining. The Rams missed a layup on a Bernard James block on the other end but were able to control the rebound calling a timeout with just 7.9 seconds left. That was when Joey Rodriguez found Burgess for the final points of the game.

"For me this was my last game," said Kitchen. "So I'm kind of devastated. I wanted to keep it going as long as possible, and my college career, basically that last second shot, you feel pretty bad."

"We thought all along that we had potential to go not only to the Sweet 16 but farther than we did," said Hamilton. "We had some challenges with this team. There are some skills that we need to improve on in order for us to be maybe quite as efficient as we would like to be. But that's kind of who we are...We're following the guys coming and going, sometimes we sputtered, but we always seemed to bounce back. With each setback I think we kind of grew in character. With each time that we didn't perform up to our capabilities, I thought they became closer together as a team."
