Miami Outlasts Florida State

By: Heather Merritt, Jordan Giorgio

TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (franchisesportsonline.net) – Miami led the entire second half, but Florida State had the ball with a chance to tie with just 27 seconds left in the game.

However, Xavier Rathan-Mayes dribbled the ball off his foot after Dwayne Bacon couldn’t find a hole in the Hurricane defense and Miami won 67-65.

Miami started off the game strong taking an early lead and continuously outplaying the Seminoles. Benji Bell gave the Seminoles life in the first half, hitting a corner three and seconds later after a steal in transition, Bell took the opportunity nailing another three from the same spot.

Then Terrance Mann grabbed a rebound off a Hurricane miss and went coast-to-coast for an and-1. That gave Florida State their first and last lead of the night 15-14.

Miami responded quickly with a layup by Davon Reed, and the Hurricanes led the rest of the game with Florida State knocking at the door.

Devon Bookert scored 14 points for FSU (16-9, 6-7) and Xavier Rathan-Mayes added 12. They were the only Seminoles in double figures.

Freshman Malik Beasley had scored in double figures all 24 games this season, but the Miami defense limited him to just six points.

McClellan, pictured below, led all scorers with 20 points and Reed added 14. Rodriguez finished with 11 points and six assists for Miami (20-4, 9-3).

TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (franchisesportsonline.net) – After a poor start in conference play, Florida State records a huge win at home against ACC rival Clemson 76-65.

The Seminoles (14-7, 4-5) played with high intensity and a sense of urgency throughout the entirety of the game. Freshman Dwayne Bacon led the team in scoring notching 21 points, 15 in the first half, and also grabbed six rebounds.

The Clemson Tigers (13-8, 6-3) played in a 2-3 zone for most of the game, which gave Bacon a lot of room to score down low.

“I’m good at attacking from either block or the short corner,” said Bacon. “That’s what coach Ham told me to do. He said when I get it there, just attack; and that’s what I did.”
