#21 FLORIDA STATE 68, GEORGIA TECH 54 - The Noles bounced back from a poor shooting performance in the first half and beat the Jackets at the Donald L. Tucker Center to capture their school-record sixth consecutive ACC game.

By extending their winning streak to six games, the Florida State (15-7, 6-1 ACC) remain atop the league standings via tie-breakers. But maintaining that first-place perch looked to be in doubt after 20 minutes of basketball against the Yellow Jackets Yellow Jackets (8-14, 1-7).

Down 25-24 at the break, FSU's spark this time was a halftime regrouping rather than the post-game kind. The Seminoles opened the second period with back-to-back Xavier Gibson and Luke Loucks buckets and a Deividas Dulkys 3-pointer.

MIAMI 90, MARYLAND 86 - The Miami Hurricanes blew a 16-point second-half lead, had three players disqualified and still beat Maryland in double overtime Wednesday.

Freshman Shane Larkin scored six points in the second overtime for the Hurricanes, who sank seven consecutive free throws in the final 51 seconds to hang on.
