Noles Top Georgia Tech, 72-63

Florida State got 16 points from Chris Singleton, 15 from Michael Snaer and used an early 14-0 run to beat struggling Georgia Tech 72-63 Thursday night. The Seminoles (17-7, 7-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) needed a win to beef up their NCAA resume.

For the second straight game, Georgia Tech (10-13, 3-7) had a devastating scoreless stretch in the early going. Last weekend, Clemson put together a 22-0 run on the way to a 65-56 victory. This time, the Yellow Jackets went nearly 7 minutes without scoring, a dreadful display that included 11 straight missed shots and five turnovers.

Iman Shumpert led Georgia Tech with 25 points, and Glen Rice Jr. had 24.

Florida State turned it over 17 times, letting Georgia Tech hang around despite shooting just 30 percent (23-of-77). But the Seminoles were never seriously threatened by a team with few offensive weapons beyond Shumpert and Rice.
