Winston-Salem, NC - Ian Miller scored a career-high 25 points, and Florida State overcame a large first-half deficit to defeat Wake Forest 67-60 on Saturday night.

Aaron Thomas added 19 points and 14 rebounds for the Seminoles (15-10, 6-7 ACC), who registered their first road win since posting a 63-53 victory at Miami on Jan. 15.

Wake Forest (14-11, 4-8 ACC) took control with a 12-0 run, as Coron Williams scored seven quick points to push the Deacons to a 21-6 lead. The advantage grew to as many as 16 points at 24-8 before Florida State rallied, but still trailed Wake Forest 29-23 at the break.

The Seminoles took their first lead at 39-37 in the second half on a Devon Bookert jumper and held it down the stretch. Miller's 3-pointer with 2:12 remaining gave Florida State a 61-55 advantage.

Williams led Wake Forest with 18 points in losing its fifth-consecutive game.
