Maryland vs Florida State

Miller scored 20, Florida St. tops Maryland 85-61

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Ian Miller scored 20 as Florida State knocked down a season-high 16 three-point baskets en route to an 85-61 Atlantic Coast Conference victory against Maryland Sunday night.

The Seminoles were 16 of 24 from behind the arc after hitting 10 in the previous four games combined. The 16 3-pointers were the third-most in school history and the most by Florida State in ACC play. Okaro White scored 15 and Aaron Thomas finished with 14. Montay Brandon added 13 points and eight rebounds.

Dez Wells led Maryland with 15 points while Nick Faust added 14. The Terps began the day as the No. 3 three-point shooting team in the ACC but went 3-for-18 from behind the arc and made 17 of 51 (33.3 percent) field goals.

Sunday was the last time Maryland (10-7, 2-2) will play at Florida State (11-4, 2-1) before joining the Big Ten next season.

The Seminoles entered the game shooting 31.2 percent from three-point range and ranked No. 13 in the ACC. That team was nowhere to be found as Florida State hit 9-of-12 attempts in the first half.

Devin Bookert struck first with the game's opening three points from the left wing. Then it became the White and Miller show during a 20-4 run where Florida State took a 37-19 lead.

Bookert ended a Maryland 7-0 run that left the Terrapins trailing 17-15 with a triple from the right bend. White scored the next five with a strong left-handed lay-up off a dribble-drive then knocked down a 3-pointer from the wing. Miller followed with a long-range bucket from the top of the key on the next possession and hit another 3-pointer from the wing for Florida State's next points. White, Miller and Thomas took turns for the next three before it was Miller's turn again.

That was six consecutive three-point baskets for the Seminoles. They were 1-for-11 against Clemson three days ago.

''Any coach in our league will tell you - you want Florida State shooting jump shots over a hand,'' Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. ''They made them tonight.

''You get pissed because they haven't made threes all year.''

Florida State's Brandon Allen entered late in the game and played just two minutes, but hit the record-setting 3-pointer.

Maryland never recovered from its ice-cold start combined with Florida State's effort from behind the arc.
