MIAMI TRYING TO GET A NO. 1 SEED IN THE NCAA TOURNAMENT
Mon, 18 Feb 2013 11:02 AM EST

Behind 22 points from Shane Larkin and a 63.8 team shooting percentage, No. 3 Miami erased an early double-digit deficit and slipped past Florida State Seminoles, 74-68, for its 12th consecutive victory.

Larkin, a 5-11 sophomore, scored 16 in the 2nd half and essentially took over down the stretch. The Orlando native finished 9-of-15 from the floor and made 2-of-4 3-point attempts.

“We put the ball in Shane Larkin’s hands and he dribbled around until he got a shot,” Miami coach Jim Larranaga expounded. “There was no sense in even trying to run the offense with the way (Florida State was) protecting the perimeter. They were never going to give us any 3s.”

After FSU tied the game at 51 with 10:05 to play, Larkin scored 13 of his team’s final 23 points to be sure that the Seminoles wouldn’t pull off the upset.

That much was not certain, though, until FSU’s Michael Snaer missed a long 3-pointer with the Seminoles trailing by 4 with 15 seconds to play. Ian Miller came near to tying the game with a 3-point attempt that rimmed out on the previous possession.

“I’ve told everybody I think (Larkin) is the No. 1 point guard in the ACC for sure and potentially one of the top 2 or 3 point guards in the country,” Hamilton said. “I haven’t seen anyone that has the entire package like he does.”

Miami started about as poorly as possible, absorbed Florida Country’s best shot and still escaped.

After Florida State began the game with a 13-2 run, the Hurricanes (20-3, 11-0 ACC) countered with a 25-5 run of their own that helped them to a lead by as much as 11 in the 1st half.

Florida State, though, battled back in the 2nd half, rallying from down 51-39 for a 12-0 run that tied the game at 51 with 10:10 remaining in the game. Football betting lines

Center Reggie Johnson added 14 points and 8 rebounds off the bench for the Miami Hurricanes, who are the 1st team to start 11-0 in the ACC since North Carolina did it in 2000-01.

Larranaga credited Johnson with turning around the game after FSU jumped out to its early lead.

“I really thought Reggie was the difference,” he said.

Junior forward Okaro White led Florida State (13-11, 5-6) with 15 points and 7 rebounds, but fouled out with 2:04 to go.

The Miami shot their way out of an early deficit and took a 38-30 lead into halftime.

Playing for the 1st time with their newly No. 3 ranking — which matches the highest at school history — the Miami fell into a fast 13-2 hole after Florida State began the game with a new, freshman-heavy starting lineup.

Miami’s deficiency quickly evaporated once Coach Jim Larranaga switched to a bigger lineup and the Hurricanes’ guards started heating up from the floor.

The Miami shot 73.9 percent (17-for-23) from the floor in the 1st half and got points from 8 different players. Hurricanes featured plenty of balance, too. Center Reggie Johnson lighted the way with 8 first-half points, and 4 other Hurricanes scored 6.
