FSU beats Northeastern, 62-60

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - Devon Bookert hit a 10-foot fade away jumper off a missed layup with 0.5 seconds to give Florida State a dramatic 62-60 win over Northeastern in the third place game of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off on Sunday.

Northeastern's Scott Eatherton got off a desperation 3-pointer from the top of the key at the buzzer, but it bounced harmlessly off the backboard.

Aaron Thomas had 16 points to lead Florida State, followed by Robert Gilchrist with 12.

The Seminoles (5-1) trailed the entire way before taking their first lead of the game with just under 14 minutes left in the game, then had to fight several final charges by the Huskies (2-4).

Eatherton finished with 21 points and 15 rebounds, his third double-double of the tournament. Reggie Spencer and David Walker each added 13 points.

Florida State took its first lead of the game until 13:43 on a basket by Robert Gilchrist that made it 41-39

But the Huskies kept attacking the Seminoles' pressure and got a dunk by Derrico Peck to nudge back in front 50-46 with 7:32 remaining.

The Seminoles came right back, and got a steal and layup by Montay Brandon, and then a driving layup by Ian Miller to go back ahead by a basket at 52-50.

It stretched out to 58-52, but Florida State soon lost Okaro White to his fifth foul at the 2:33 mark.

The Huskies took advantage and cut the lead to a basket on their next trip down the floor on another dunk by Peck. They then tied it at 58 in on a pair of free throws by Eatherton with just over a minute to play.

Florida State called timeout and took the shot clock down before getting Miller free for a short jumper. It rolled out, but Brandon was there for the tip to put the Seminoles back up.

Walker was fouled on the subsequent inbounds play and then tied it again with two free throws to set up Florida State's final possession.

Northeastern led 28-28 at the half in pretty even opening 20 minutes that featured a pair of ties.

Scoring was spread out on both sides, with Eatherton leading all scorers with 10 points.

The Huskies also held a 20-18 rebounding edge over the Seminoles. Both teams also shot nearly identical percentages from the field. Northeastern connected on 41 percent of its attempts, and Florida State 42 percent.

Northeastern did have to play a chunk of the half without Peck, who was forced to the bench with his third foul after just eight minutes of action.
