CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) – Dwayne Bacon scored 26 of his 29 points after halftime and hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 4 seconds left, lifting No. 20 Florida State past No. 12 Virginia 60-58 on Saturday.
Bacon scored the last seven points during a 9-0 run for the Seminoles (14-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) that turned a 51-49 deficit into a 56-51 lead, and then answered quickly after Kyle Guy’s 3-pointer had given Virginia a 58-57 lead with 8.8 seconds to play.
Guy scored 14 points and three others had 10 for Virginia (11-2, 1-1), which lost for just the second time in its last 37 ACC home games.
Xavier Rathan-Mayes added 10 points for the Seminoles, all in the first half.
The Seminoles won their 10th straight as they began a stretch of six consecutive games against teams in the Top 25, or likely to be there.
Virginia’s London Perrantes tried a half-court heave at the buzzer, and it was on line, but came up well short.
