THURSDAY NIGHT HOOPS

FLORIDA STATE 62, GEORGIA TECH 58 - The ACC's leading scorer in league games, Toney Douglas shook off a poor shooting night and scored 10 of his game-high 21 points in the final 5:09 as cold-shooting Florida State rallied for a 62-58 victory over Georgia Tech on Thursday night.

Florida State (17-5, 4-3) hit seven of eight free throws, four by Uche Echefu (gusuntite), in the final 41.5 seconds to stave off the Yellow Jackets.
Georgia Tech (10-11, 1-7) was led by Zachery Peacock's 16 points, while Gani Lawal came up with his 14th double-double of the season with 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Yellow Jackets.

By way of numerical perspective, the Noles scored one more and the Jakcets one less basket in the entire game than the Tar Heels scored Tuesday night in the first half.
