Florida State tops Lady Tigers



TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Tasheika Morris scored 23 points as Florida State closed the regular season with its first win in exactly a month, beating Clemson 68-59 on Sunday.

The win snapped a six-game losing slide for Florida State (16-11 overall, 8-8 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Katelyn Vujas scored 12 points in her final home game for the Seminoles, who also got 11 points from Holly Johnson and 10 from Trinetta Moore.

Chrissy Floyd scored a game-high 28 points for Clemson (13-14, 5-11).

Clemson led 29-26 late in the first half, but the Seminoles closed the half on a quick 6-0 run and never trailed again. Floyd scored 19 consecutive Clemson points after halftime, including back-to-back 3-pointers midway through the second half to draw the Tigers within 49-46, but Clemson could never get closer than two the rest of the way.

The Seminoles will play an undetermined opponent in Saturday's ACC Tournament quarterfinals in Greensboro, N.C. Florida State have either the No. 4 or No. 5 seed.

Clemson will play in a preliminary round game on Friday, with a spot in Saturday's quarterfinals against second-seeded North Carolina on the line.
