    Seminoles' five-game winning streak ends

    CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Yalonda McCormick scored 23 points -- including the last four of the game -- to give Miami its first Atlantic Coast Conference victory, a 62-57 upset Thursday night over Florida State (No. 18 ESPN/USA Today, No. 21 AP).

    Miami ended a five-game losing streak in the series and snapped Florida State's overall five-game winning streak. The victory was the first in the series for ACC newcomer Miami (9-10, 1-5) since the 1988-89 season.

    Ganiyat Adeduntan had 17 points and Roneeka Hodges 16 to lead Florida State (18-3, 5-2). Tamara James added 18 points for the Hurricanes, who forced Florida State into 19 turnovers.

    Trailing for most of the second half, Miami took the lead for good at 52-51 on a jumper by James with 5:46 left. The Hurricanes built their lead to its largest margin at 58-53 with 1:54 to go.

    Then LaQuinta Neely and Alicia Gladden responded with consecutive jumpers to cut the deficit to a point. But McCormick made a layup and drew a foul. She misfired on the free throw, but Gladden missed a 3-point attempt with 21 seconds left and Miami rebounded.

    McCormick was fouled and hit two free throws with 17 seconds left.

    The Hurricanes went on a 7-0 run before the break cut Florida State's halftime lead to 31-28. The Seminoles led by as many as 11 points in the first half.
