Florida State Beats Maryland, Remains Atop ACC

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Cierra Bravard and Chelsea Davis each scored 14 points to lead a balanced Florida State offense and the 15th-ranked Seminoles beat No. 16 Maryland 72-66 on Sunday.

Florida State (22-5, 10-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) can win at least a share of its third straight ACC title with victories this week at Miami and at home against Clemson. The Seminoles and No. 7 Duke are tied for first place with No. 13 Miami still alive at 9-2.

Chasity Clayton and Natasha Howard had 12 points each for the Seminoles. Florida State led 36-28 at half with Clayton and Davis each scoring nine points while Maryland managed a single free throw from its reserves.

Alyssa Thomas led the Terrapins (21-6, 7-5 ACC) with a career high 26 points while Lynetta Kizer added 17 points and 10 rebounds.
