TALLAHASSEE, Fl.-- Junior Val Linley hit the front end of a 1 and 1 free throw opportunity with 34.0 seconds left to clinch a victory over Maryland tonight in an ACC matchup in Tully Gym. The 53-50 win was the third ACC win for the Seminoles, bringing their record to 7-11, 3-5 in ACC games. Maryland dropped to 10-8, 3-5 in ACC games.

FSU trailed most for the first half until Freshman Brooke Wyckoff's layup with 4:04 left in the half brought them ahead. Their greatest lead was 6 points and they led at the half, 30-26. Wyckoff and Latavia Coleman scored 6 points a piece and each had 1 rebound at the end of the half.

Maryland came out the second half and scored five of the first six points, taking the lead 35-32 with 13:24 to play. Senior Aletha Penn hit a 3 point shot to bring FSU back on top. The Seminoles kept the lead, winning the game 53-50. Junior Arleshia Davidson led the Seminoles with a double-double of 10 points and 10 rebounds. Colemand and Wnedy Hampton both had 9 points.

"This was a great win for this program," Coach Sue Semrau said. "We did what we needed to do to beat a great Maryland team. Our bench was a huge asset. Latrice McLin played wonderful defense and Arleshia Davidson had a double-double, which was big in our win."

The Seminoles take on N.C State on Sunday in Tully Gym at 2pm.
