CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Chris Singleton scored 19 points and Florida State hit 11 3-pointers to beat struggling North Carolina 77-67 on Wednesday night, handing the defending national champions their latest double-digit loss.
Deividas Dulkys scored 17 and hit five 3s off the bench to help the Seminoles (20-7, 8-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) guarantee themselves at least a break-even record in league play that could be critical for their NCAA tournament chances. It was Florida State's first win in Chapel Hill since 2000 and marked the first time in 13 years that the Seminoles have won two straight in a series long dominated by the Tar Heels (14-14, 3-10).
The Seminoles controlled this one from the start, going 9-for-15 from 3-point range in the opening half and capitalizing on repeated turnovers to open a 48-33 lead at the break.
