CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Shooting just 32.1 percent from the field, Florida State limited Miami’s offensive production to just 18 field goals to upend the Hurricanes 79-54 Thursday night at the BankUnited Center, marking UM’s lowest point total of the season.

As a team, the Hurricanes (15-8, 5-5 ACC) recorded their lowest field percentage of the season while FSU (15-7, 6-3 ACC) hit 47.5 percent from the field including 5-of-11 three-point attempts.

After jumping out to a 45-28 first half lead, Florida State took a 51-28 lead two minutes into the second half that extended to the 16:20 mark.

Following a free throw by sophomore forward Lamese James, who finished with seven points and a team-high six rebounds, Miami battled back to cut the lead down to 14 at 56-42 with 10:47 left to play.

FSU answered Miami’s run, outscoring the Hurricanes 18-3 over the next six minutes to hold off the UM charge and eventually went on to take the 79-54 victory.

Three UM players scored double figures led by junior guard Renee Taylor’s 16-point outing. Senior forward Tamara James and senior guard Melissa Knight each added 10 in the loss.

All but one of FSU’s starting lineup hit double-digits including Holly Johnson and Ganiyat Adeduntan, who each recorded 16.

The Hurricanes return to action Sunday, traveling to Chestnut Hill, Mass. to take on No. 21 Boston College at 2 p.m.
