Coral Gables, FL (AP) - 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 12 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) lost for the first time in nine home games
this season.

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.
