TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Toney Douglas scored 19 points and
matched a career high with seven assists Tuesday as No. 25 Florida
State defeated Virginia 68-57 on Tuesday night, handing the
Cavaliers their eighth consecutive loss.

Douglas, the ACC's leading scorer in conference competition,
scored 15 points in a decisive second half - including successive
3-point shots just 25 seconds apart that gave Florida State a 40-35

The Seminoles (19-5, 6-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) shook off a
woeful first-half shooting effort with a blistering 70.8 percent
performance in the second half.

Virginia (7-13, 1-8) was led by Sylven Landesberg's 14 points.

Uche Echefu added 17 points and freshman Solomon Alabi had 13
for the Seminoles.
