SATURDAY HOOPS: THE BEST OF THE REST

FLORIDA STATE 76, MARYLAND 73 – Toney Douglas scored eight of his 25 points in overtime to lead Florida State (15-3, 2-1 ACC) over the Terps. Douglas, who had just five points at halftime, scored the Seminoles first seven points of the overtime. Maryland (12-5, 1-2) was led by Milbourne's 17 points.
N.C. STATE GEORGIA TECH OT – Dennis Horner came off the bench and scored six of his eight points in the final 90 seconds of overtime to lead North Carolina State past Georgia Tech.

Brandon Costner had 22 points and Ben McCauley added 18 for the Wolfpack (10-5, 1-2 ACC), but it was little-used Horner who made the plays at the end. Freshman Iman Shumpert scored 22 points for the Yellow Jackets (9-8, 0-4).

VIRGINIA TECH 79, BOSTON COLLEGE 71 – Plain and simple, it sucks to be B.C. (13-6, 1-3 ACC) After knocking off then No. 1 UNC in Chapel Hill and paying a brief visit to the national polls, the Eagles have lost four straight. Saturday, the Hokies Jeff Allen scored a career-high 30 points and grabbed nine rebounds as Virginia Tech held Boston College to just one field goal in the final three minutes to pull away 79-71.

Down the stretch, Virginia Tech (12-5, 2-1) hit 9 of 13 free throws in the final minute to pull away.
