Deluzio heats up late to help No. 23 Florida State women beat Miami 70-58 in ACC quarterfinals
Alexa Deluzio scored 11 of her 19 points in the final six minutes to lead No. 23 Florida State past Miami 70-58 on Friday in an Atlantic Coast Conference quarterfinal.
Chelsea Davis added 15 points and Yashira Delgado had 12 for the fourth-seeded Seminoles (22-8). They won their first ACC tournament game since 2009 — also the last time they reached the semifinals.
Shawnice Wilson had 18 points and 18 rebounds, and Suriya McGuire added 13 points for the fifth-seeded Hurricanes (21-10). They had 23 turnovers yet closed to 48-44 on Wilson's three-point play with 7:21 left.
Deluzio followed by hitting two sets of free throws to put Florida State up by eight. Her 3-pointer with 3:45 left then stretched the lead to 57-48 and the Seminoles pulled away from there.
Chasity Clayton finished with 10 points for Florida State.
Morgan Stroman added 12 points and 12 rebounds for Miami.
