TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- B.J. Elder's two free throws with 0.4
seconds remaining lifted Georgia Tech to a 76-75 win over Florida
State on Sunday, the Seminoles' sixth straight loss.
Elder, who finished with a game-high 22 points, was fouled under
the basket by Florida State's Andrew Wilson and coolly made both
shots, sending the Seminoles to their eighth loss by three points
or fewer this season.
Florida State (11-15, 3-9 Atlantic Coast Conference) rallied
from a 69-56 deficit with 8:49 remaining and took its only
second-half lead with 9.7 seconds left. Al Thornton's turnaround
jumper over Georgia Tech's 7-foot-4 center Luke Schenscher put the
Seminoles up 75-74, but they couldn't hold on.
Schenscher had 14 points and six rebounds for Georgia Tech
(15-8, 6-6 ACC), while Jarrett Jack had 10 points and a game-high
six assists for the Yellow Jackets -- who won despite not having any
field goals in the final 3:43.
Thornton, who was 7-for-8 from the field and 6-for-8 from the
foul line, had 20 points and a game-high seven rebounds for Florida
State. Von Wafer had 14 points and Todd Galloway 13 for the
Georgia Tech won for the first time in its last three trips to
