TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Toney Douglas shook off a poor shooting night and scored 10 of his game-high 21 points in the final 5:09 as cold-shooting Florida State rallied for a 62-58 victory over Georgia Tech on Thursday night.

Douglas, the Atlantic Coast Conference’s leading scorer in league games, put the Seminoles ahead to stay at 48-46 with a floating jumper just inside the free-throw lane with 5:09 left.

Florida State (17-5, 4-3) hit seven of eight free throws, four by Uche Echefu, in the final 41.5 seconds to stave off the Yellow Jackets.

Georgia Tech (10-11, 1-7) was led by Zachery Peacock’s 16 points, while Gani Lawal came up with his 14th double-double of the season with 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Yellow Jackets.
