She totaled 26 points and eight rebounds in the second half and overtime. "The last couple of games that he's played, he hasn't been as quite as consistent as he had been".
FSU later made back-to-back dunks to extend the lead to 52-43 with 16:39 left.
For the Hokies, the loss was bittersweet.
Bob Huggins will try to direct sixth-ranked West Virginia out of a two-game losing streak today when the Mountaineers (15-3) host a unsafe 12-6 Texas Longhorns team that beat another top 10 rival, Texas Tech, on Wednesday.
The loss was the Hokies' fourth league defeat already this season and, coupled with a weak non-conference schedule, means earning a second consecutive NCAA tournament berth will be uphill running the rest of the way for Tech (13-6, 2-4 ACC).
BLACKSBURG, Va. - A pair of 13-5 teams, Virginia Tech and Florida State, meet today in Blacksburg as Hokies coach Buzz Williams looks to improve on his 2-5 record against the Seminoles while at Tech. However, after Thomas' final basket made it a three-point game and both teams had empty possessions, Wright fouled Ivan Raca on a 3-point attempt with a second left. A short time later, M.J. Walker buried a 3-pointer and followed with a layup to push Florida State's advantage to 59-47 with 12:41 to play. They had shot just 27.4 percent from beyond the 3-point arc in their previous four games, but heated up against Virginia Tech, connecting on 9 of 20.
Florida State shot better than 50 percent from the floor for the first time since beating Southern Miss on December 21 - a span of six games. "(But) it's not like we're 1-20 and you're going, 'Man, do we have to go back to practice again?' We've got a lot to play for.
Hines-Allen finished with 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting while Durr was 5 of 21 and 1 of 8 from long range.
"We've been a little cold the last couple of games in terms of shooting the ball from the perimeter", Hamilton said. "I thought we would be a good perimeter-shooting team".
"Where we've been mostly challenged, we didn't have Christ Koumadje, so we didn't have an experienced interior game". Players run on a treadmill for 30 seconds after each turnover committed, and the Hokies' 13 turnovers were fewer than the 19 that they committed in their previous game - a loss at Louisville on January 13. "What I'm trying to do is figure out how to help them because what I'm doing is not good enough to put them in the right position". We got our (butt) kicked on the glass.
