TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Guillermo Diaz scored 19 points and Robert Hite
added 17 Tuesday night to lead Miami to a 65-49 win over Florida State, handing
the Seminoles their seventh straight loss.

Miami (16-9, 7-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 30-17 at the half, with
Florida State managing only three points in the final 9:24 of the half.

Al Thornton came off the bench to lead the cold-shooting Seminoles with 12
points and eight rebounds. Isaiah Swann added 10.

The Seminoles (11-16, 3-10) shot 28.1 percent and just 16.6 percent from
3-point distance.

Florida State’s starting lineup produced just 13 points, although the team’s
scoring leader, Von Wafer, did not start.

Wafer, who scored 25 points at Miami last month, and Thornton first entered
the game with 3:23 left in the first half with the Seminoles trailing 28-16.

Anthony Harris had 13 points and William Frisby 11 for Miami while Diaz and
Hite led the Hurricanes in rebounds with 8 and 7, respectively.

Miami shot 45.7 percent, but hit 8 of 16 from 3-point distance and had a
40-33 rebound advantage.

Florida State has now lost at least 10 ACC games for 12 straight seasons and
the seven straight losses are the most since a similar streak in the 1998-99
season.
