CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Florida State missed its first 10 shots but rallied from a 10-point second-half deficit, scoring 12 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 12-0 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.
