Florida State rallies past Maryland 65-62

AP Sports Writer

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Okaro White scored 15 consecutive
points for Florida State to fuel a second-half comeback that
lifted the Seminoles past Maryland 65-62 Wednesday night, ending
the Terrapins' 13-game winning streak.

Florida State (10-5, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) rallied from
a 12-point deficit to defeat the cold-shooting Terrapins, who
went 10 for 32 from the floor in the second half.

White finished with a career-high-tying 20 points, Michael Snaer
scored 15 and Ian Miller added 12 for the Seminoles, who had
lost eight in a row at Maryland since 2001.

Alex Len had 15 points and 10 rebounds, and Nick Faust scored 14
for Maryland (13-2, 1-1). The Terrapins were seeking to match
the school-record winning streak of 14 games, set in 1931-32.

Down by nine at halftime and 39-27 with 18 minutes to go, the
Seminoles got five points from Snaer in a 12-2 run that cut the
deficit to 43-42 with 13 minutes left.

After that, White took over. The 6-foot-8 junior scored on
dunks, follow shots and drives before sinking two free throws to
make it 57-51.

Maryland, meanwhile, went nearly seven minutes without a point
until Logan Aronhalt connected from beyond the arc with 7:54
remaining. But the Terrapins never led after a three-point play
by White made it 53-51 with 4:05 to go.

It was 59-51 before Maryland fought to 61-59 with 19 seconds
left. Devon Bookert then made two free throws for FSU, but Faust
answered with a 3 to get the Terrapins within a point. After
Snaer converted one of two foul shots, Seth Allen had a jumper
blocked by Snaer and White, appropriately, finished the scoring
with a free throw.

Florida State has won six of seven following a three-game losing

The Terrapins led 36-27 at halftime after outrebounding Florida
State 26-11 and limiting the Seminoles to 31 percent shooting -
3 for 4 by Miller and 6 for 25 by everyone else.

Maryland had five turnovers in the opening three minutes, but
FSU missed seven of its first eight shots. Soon after that,
Faust drilled a pair of 3-pointers and Jake Layman also
connected from beyond the arc during an 11-3 run that put the
Terrapins up 14-9.

After the Seminoles closed to 16-15, Dez Wells scored on a
drive, James Padgett made a three-point play and Len sank two
free throws for a 23-15 cushion.

A layup by freshman Charles Mitchell and a baseline jumper by
Len extended the margin to 10 points.
