FSU Flips Shell-Shocked Terps

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- It's said that all good things come to an end but in the case of the Florida State men's basketball team, that logic only proved true for a few seconds in Tuesday night's 84-70 win over visiting Maryland.

After not trailing for a total of 102 minutes and 37 seconds dating back to the start of the their game at Virginia Tech last week, that streak briefly ended for the Seminoles after Terrapins guard Jeff Stoglin hit back-to-back 3-pointers to start the second half at the Donald L. Tucker Center and Alex Len's five-footer found the bottom of the net.

Down 42-40 with 17:23 remaining in the game, FSU (12-6, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) regained the lead seven seconds later to spark a 16-0 run and maintained that advantage to earn its third-straight league win after suffering a conference-opening 20-point loss at Clemson -- an outcome that seems about a lifetime ago considering what the 'Noles have done in recent days.
