Noles Down No. 19 Georgia Tech, 68-66

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Solomon Alabi wasn't a bit worried as he stepped to the free throw line, his team trailing by a point with 22 seconds left.

Alabi, who may be the best 7-foot-1 free throw shooter around, made both of them - even though the first bounced high off the rim before dropping through the net. The second gave the Seminoles the lead over 19th-ranked Georgia Tech, which failed to score again.

Alabi, a redshirt sophomore who has made 83 percent (68 of 82) of his free throws this season, said he was confident largely because of a dedicated practice routine.
