THE ROAD GOES ON FOREVER(?)

FLORIDA STATE 69, VIRGINIA 67

Virginia has a tough time winning on the road and last night was no different. They squandered a 10 point second half lead, and gave Florida State's Leonard Hamilton his 300th career coaching victory.

Toney Douglas scored 19 points and put the Noles (13-7, 2-3 ACC) ahead 63-62 on a free throw. He then slapped the ball away from Virginia's Sean Singletary to add two more free throws after being fouled on his way for an uncontested layup.

Douglas, who had six steals in the game, hit 7 of 11 shots from the floor and also had six rebounds.

Virginia (11-6, 1-3) led 56-46 with 8:58 left on a Singletary layup, but Florida State caught up at 60-all on Isaiah Swann's 3-point shot from deep in the corner with 2:27 left. Douglas' layup with 1:55 to go gave the winners a 62-60 lead.
