TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Jamel Artis' 3-pointer with 33 seconds remaining helped Pittsburgh rally for a 74-72 victory over Florida State on Saturday.

Ryan Luther missed a layup but grabbed his own rebound and kicked it out to Artis, who nailed a 3-pointer near the top of the key from the left side.

Artis and Sterling Smith led the Panthers (16-3, 5-2 ACC) with 16 points each while James Robinson added 14 and Michael Young 13.
