BOSTON -- Derwin Kitchen hit Florida State's only 3-pointer of the game in the closing minute and Solomon Alabi scored 16 points and had six rebounds, lifting the Seminoles to a scrappy 61-57 win over Boston College on Saturday.
Michael Snaer, Chris Singleton and Ryan Reid each finished with 10 points for the Seminoles (16-5, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). It was just Florida State's third win in its last six games after a seven-game winning streak.
Kitchen also hit two free throws to seal it with 7.8 seconds left.
Florida State, which entered the game leading the ACC in field goal defense, held Boston College to 43.6 percent shooting -- the 57th straight opponent below 50 percent.
