Freshman Josh Langford scored a career-high 16 points as Auburn notched its fourth win in a row with a 65-60 victory over Florida State.
The Tigers (7-7), whose most significant win entering Monday came against Middle Tennessee State, beat a team that was fresh off a win over Baylor, a 3-seed in last year's NCAA Tournament.
"Since the beginning of the season, we've gotten a lot better," said guard Josh Wallace, who finished with nine points and seven assists. "And it's starting to show."
Florida State (11-4) got off to a frigid start in the first half, shooting 24.2 percent from the floor (8 of 33) and 6.7 percent from 3-point range (1 of 15).
