    Rivalry game no gimme for red-hot Seminoles
    Florida State coach Hamilton feels UM better than its record
    By Chaunte’l Powell Orlando Sentinel
    TALLAHASSEE – No. 13 Florida State hosts rival Miami Wednesday night as the Seminoles try to extend their seven-game home win streak.
    The Seminoles (12-2) are also looking to bounce back from a 65-52 loss to No. 4 Virginia to start conference play.

    The Hurricanes (8-6) are 0-2 in ACC play, but FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said Miami is a team that’s better than its record shows.
    “If you look at both of those games and stop with three quarters of the game [complete], you’d have gone to bed and said Miami won,” Hamilton told Seminoles.com. “They don’t look like a team that’s not very good.”

    The Hurricanes enter the matchup with just seven scholarship players on their roster and six UM players are averaging at least 24 minutes per game. The will try to compete with the depth of Florida State, which has only three players averaging at least 24 minutes per game.

    Guard Nichols leads FSU with 13 points off bench

    By Chaunte'l Powell Orlando Sentinel

    TALLAHASSEE – Statistically, it wasn’t pretty, but the Florida State Seminoles defeated the rival Miami Hurricanes 68-62 Wednesday night to get their first ACC win and their 13th victory of the season.
    Both teams struggled offensively, with the Seminoles shooting 39 percent in the first half and 42.2 during the game.
    Miami shot just 29 percent from the field in the first half, but the team knocked down 13 of 15 free throws to keep the game close.

    The Hurricanes shot 22 free throws during the contest, compared to FSU’s 13.
    Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton said the plan defensively was to run the Hurricanes off the 3-point line. He added they accomplished that feat, but there was a price to pay in doing so.

    “You give up something sometimes to get something. We did bump them,” he said. “I thought we had some body contact while those guys were on the way to the basket. They made us pay by stepping up and making their free throws. … I think we were a little overaggressive and they knocked down their free throws.”

    Seminoles prevail
