No.3 Florida State defeats No. 11 FGCU 86-80

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Florida State made the most of its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2012, beat a Sunshine State opponent.

The third-seeded Seminoles held off No. 14 Florida Gulf Coast 86-80 in a West Region game Thursday night despite some sloppy play that allowed a late double-digit lead to disappear. The Seminoles made some clutch free throws and came up with just enough stops in the waning moments to spoil the Eagles' upset bid.

"There is some satisfaction because we won," said Dwayne Bacon, who led the Seminoles with 25 points. "All that other stuff, how the game looked, that doesn't matter when you win."
