Roundup: Seminoles upset 2nd top 10 team in a row


Pickett hits 18 in FSU's win over No. 10 Wake Forest

The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Tim Pickett's second strong finish made some history for Florida State.

The Seminoles, with Pickett again having a big second half, beat No. 10 Wake Forest 75-70 Sunday, giving them consecutive wins over top 10 teams for the first time in school history.

Pickett scored all of his 18 points after halftime Sunday and Florida State made six straight free throws over the final 45 seconds to hand the Demon Deacons' their fourth straight loss.

Last Thursday, Pickett scored 22 points after halftime to spark the Seminoles to a 90-81 overtime victory over No. 7 North Carolina.

Up next is No. 1 Duke Thursday.

"You have to be realistic where we are," Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton said. "We're still a team that's developing, that's trying to move our program to a program of significance in the ACC as well as on a national basis."

Wake Forest (11-4, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), has reached those levels, but the Demon Deacons added a loss to the list that includes Texas, Duke and Georgia Tech.
