Chris Singleton came off the bench and tallied a double-double as he scored 18 points and gabbed 10 rebounds in Florida State's win over Marquette in the championship game of the Old Spice Classic.
Derwin Kitchen was Florida State's only other player in double digits scoring 14 points on 6-13 shooting. Solomon Alabi added eight points and seven rebounds and also hit the game-winning shot with less than 10 seconds to play capping a remarkable comeback.
The Seminoles trailed the Golden Eagles by 17 points at the 15 minute mark of the second half but rallied late to take the tournament crown.
With the win, Florida State improves to 6-1 on the season with their lone loss coming at the hands of Florida Tuesday night. The Tribe will now travel to Ohio State on Wednesday night to play the Buckeyes in the ACC-Big 10 Challenge. Tip-off is set for 9:30 and will be broadcast live on ESPN 2.
Basketball season in Tally!
