It was a tough week for the S.S. Florida State. The hoops squad had dropped two straight ACC games. Call it an early season “must win.”

Solomon Alabi and Deividas Dulkys scored 13 points apiece Saturday night as 25th-ranked Florida State survived a furious last-minute Virginia Tech finish for a 63-58 victory that snapped a two-game Atlantic Coast Conference losing streak.

Florida State (14-4, 2-2) led by 10 points before Dorenzo Hudson's layup with 37 seconds left cut the Seminoles' lead to 57-49.

Hudson, Terrell Bell and Malcolm Delaney then hit 3-pointers in a 21 second span that brought the Hokies (13-3, 1-2) within one point with four seconds left before Michael Snaer's two free throws put the Seminoles up 61-58.

Florida State's Chris Singleton was held to only two points, but he grabbed eight rebounds and blocked five shots as the Seminoles limited Virginia Tech to 34.5 percent shooting in claiming their third straight win over the Hokies.
