TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)–Toney Douglas scored 24 points and Uche Echefu added 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead Florida State to an 80-67 victory over Miami on Wednesday night.
The Seminoles (20-6, 7-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) made 31 of 35 free throws — including 20 in the second half — to pick up their 20th win of the season and improve to 11-4 at home.
James Dews led Miami (15-10, 4-8) with a season-high 19 points — including three three-pointers — and a career-high seven rebounds, while Jack McClinton finished with 13 points for UM. McClinton, who had scored 101 points in the last three games, tied Steven Edwards for the Miami school record for career threes (265) with his only trey, four minutes into the game.
