TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Toney Douglas scored 19 points Wednesday as Florida State rallied from a 10-point second half deficit to take a 69-67 victory over Virginia.
Douglas, the Atlantic Coast Conference steals leader, put the Seminoles ahead 63-62 on a free throw. He then swiped the ball from Virginia's Sean Singletary to add two more free throws after being fouled on his way for an uncontested layup.
Florida State (13-7, 2-3 ACC) led 31-28 at the half, but it didn't take long for it to evaporate.
Virginia (11-6, 1-3) led 56-46 with 8:58 left on a Singletary layup, but Florida State caught up at 60-all on Isaiah Swann's 3-point shot from deep in the corner with 2:27 left. Douglas' layup with 1:55 to go gave the winners a 62-60 lead.
Douglas, who had six steals in the game, hit 7 of 11 shots from the floor and also had six rebounds.
Jason Rich added 17 points and Swann 16 as coach Leonard Hamilton collected his 300th career win and 100th at Florida State, which snapped a three-game conference losing streak.
Mamadi Diane led Virginia with 21 points, Adrian Joseph added 17 points and a game-high 8 rebounds while Singletary finished with 11 points and a game-best 7 assists.
Virginia jumped off to a 12-2 start, but Swann scored seven points in 34 seconds (a free throw following his first of two quick 3-point shots) capping a 10-0 run that tied the game at 15.
The Cavaliers shot just 41.7 percent in the game and were outscored 23-11 in the final 8:58.
