Honululu, Hawaii, (AP) - Matt Howard scored 19 points and Shelvin Mack added 17, all in the second half, to lift Butler past Florida State
67-64 in a semifinal game of the Diamond Head Classic on Thursday
night.

The Bulldogs (8-4) won their fourth in a row and advanced to
Saturday's tournament championship game against Washington State.
The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for the Seminoles
(10-3).

Howard grabbed nine rebounds and Mack had five assists for
Butler, which also got 11 points from Chase Stigall.

Butler led by as many as 15 points with 8:44 left, but Florida
State came back and was within four in the final minute. Howard
stole the ball and hit a pair of free throws to make it 67-61.

Chris Singleton, who hit a 3-pointer as time expired, scored 26
of his game-high 28 points in the second half for Florida State.
