TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)Todd Galloway scored nine straight points in
overtime and finished with a career-high 21 to help Florida State snap No. 3
Wake Forest’s 10-game winning streak with a 91-83 victory Tuesday night.

Wake Forest (15-2, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) had a chance for a
miraculous win at the end of regulation when Taron Downey was fouled while
making a desperation 3-pointer that tied it at 76. But Downey missed the free
throw, the Demon Deacons’ first miss from the line after hitting an NCAA-record
50 straight.

Wake Forest made 32 straight in Saturday in a 95-82 win over North Carolina
and its first 18 Tuesday night before Downey’s miss.

Von Wafer scored 25 of his career-high 30 points in the first half as
Florida State (10-8, 2-3) twice opened 19-point leads on its way to a 46-32
lead at halftime.

Wafer was 6-of-8 from 3-point range and 9-of-13 overall in the first half.
He was one of three Seminoles who had career highs in the game.

Al Thornton and Galloway took up the slack after Wafer cooled.

Galloway scored nine points in just over 2 minutes to give the Seminoles an
89-80 lead with 37 seconds left.

Thornton scored 20 of his 26 points after halftime, including Florida
State’s first four of the overtime, and finished with a game-high 10 rebounds.

Paul scored 29 points, just one shy of his career high, Downey added 21 and
Eric Williams had 18 for Wake Forest.
