He hesitated "just to see what they were going to do", he said, and then he "let it fly", and when it swished, Florida State led 71-70 and had a 25-12 run.

Phil Savoy's three-pointer with 1:07 remaining finally put Florida State ahead.

The Seminoles would pull away late led by 14 points from Mfiondu Kabengele off the bench along with 12 points from PJ Savoy and 10 from Trent Forrest in the 67-54 victory. A pair of free throws by Savoy made the lead three.

The Seminoles are headed to NCAA West Region semifinal in Los Angeles, where they'll meet fourth-seeded Gonzaga on Thursday. On its next one after that, which began with 21 seconds left and a three-point deficit, Kerem Kanter's attempt at a three-point shot from the top seemed to graze the front of the net.

Florida State may have been looking for a bit of revenge as the Seminoles were the No. 3 seed in last year's tournament, but were blown out by 11th-seeded Xavier in the second round.
