Florida State 91, Virginia Tech 82

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- M.J. Walker scored a career-high 24 points to lead Florida State to a 91-82 victory over Virginia Tech.

Walker came off the bench to hit 8 of 13 from the floor, including four 3-pointers to lift the Seminoles (14-5, 3-4 ACC) to their first league road win of the season. Braian Angola added 14 points, while Terance Mann finished with 12.

Justin Robinson paced the Hokies (13-6, 2-4) with 26 points. Virginia Tech has now lost three straight to Florida State.

The Seminoles, who had lost three of their past four games since upsetting North Carolina in Tallahassee on Jan. 3, led the entire second half. Walker - who considered Virginia Tech during the recruiting process - gave Florida State its biggest lead when he scored on three straight possessions. His jumper with 11:57 remaining capped his spurt and gave the Seminoles a 61-47 lead.

Walker later made the biggest play of the game. With the Seminoles leading 76-70, he made a steal and laid the ball in with 57 seconds left to push Florida State's lead to 79-70. The Seminoles then made 12 of 14 from the free-throw line in the final minute to seal it.
