FLORIDA STATE 75, MIAMI 72 OT

Ralph Mims scored 25 points, including the decisive basket of the game, to lead Florida State to a 75-72 win Saturday over Miami - the Seminoles fifth straight victory over their downstate rival.

Mims slashed down the lane for a layup with 1:49 left that gave the Seminoles a 75-70 lead and Miami's Lance Hurdle hit two free throws 11 seconds later as both teams went scoreless the final 1:38.

The game went into overtime tied at 66 after Miami's Jack McClinton watched his 3-point jumper rim out at the buzzer. Florida State's Ryan Reid had tied the game with two free throws with 33 seconds left.

Jason Rich and Toney Douglas each added 16 points for Florida State, which had lost twice earlier this season in ACC overtime games.
