Atlanta, GA (AP) - Bouncing back from a 20-point loss to North Carolina, 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) desperately
needed a win to beef up their NCAA resume, especially after the 89-69 rout by North Carolina and an ugly 62-44 loss at Clemson the week before that.
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.
