TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Toney Douglas scored 20 points and Florida State held off a late Boston College rally for a 66-63 win Saturday.
Shamari Spears' three-point play pulled the Eagles within two with 35 seconds left, but Ralph Mims hit two free throws and Uche Echefu stripped Tyrese Rice at the other end. Douglas added two more free throws to seal the win.
Florida State (16-12, 5-8 ACC) held the Eagles without a field goal for six and half minutes in the second half, and led by as many as 14 after halftime. But several turnovers and missed shots left the door open for BC to come back.
Douglas was 4-for-5 from the 3-point line and 6-for-13 from the field. Mims added 14 for the Seminoles, who won a second conference game in a row for the first time this season. Florida State beat Clemson 64-55 on Tuesday.
Florida State scored 21 points off of 18 Boston College turnovers, and made its last nine free throws after starting the game 4-for-9.
Tyrese Rice scored 17 for the Eagles (13-12, 4-8 ACC), but he only scored three points after halftime and didn't have a field goal in the second half.
The Seminoles opened the game on a 12-2 run and led 31-27 at halftime.
