Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton and his team knew that Virginia's Kyle Guy could hurt them offensively. "I'm not really sure I've seen many guys that seem to feel as good wherever he is on the floor that he's capable of putting it in the basket, and he does". Braxton Key added 12 points in the half and finished with 20 for Virginia, off to its best start since the 2014-15 team won its first 19 games.

"Him coming in and giving them that much offensive output really set us back a little bit", Hamilton said. UVA defense held FSU to just 34.1% shooting on the night and had FSU under 30% shooting until late in the second half.

All of that success and points didn't mean a thing early on as the Seminoles found themselves struggling both sides of the ball - going down 21-3 late in the second quarter before a fake punt call effectively saved the day and led to a touchdown before the half by Devonta Freeman as part of 17 unanswered points that cut the deficit to one.

With 1:41 to go in the fourth quarter, Seminoles freshman guard Kourtney Weber hit a three-pointer to put Florida State ahead 61-59, before Toussaint's equalizer and Myers's game-winner.

FSU has now lost ACC openers in consecutive seasons and will look to get its first conference win on Wednesday when it hosts Miami.

The Virginia women's basketball team (6-8, 0-1 ACC) opened conference play by being edged 63-61 by No. 23 Florida State (13-1, 1-0 ACC) on Thursday (Jan. 3) at John Paul Jones Arena.

Bayern Munich raise offer for Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi to £35m
Bayern Munich clearly want the Englishman and have already had three bids turned down for the teenager in the January transfer window, and it's only January 8th.


The Seminoles finished with as many turnovers as field goals, and Virginia scored 21 points off those miscues. Virginia sophomore guard Brianna Tinsley scored 11 points in the first half, while senior forward Mone Jones scored 10.

The game had been long since decided, but Florida State scored the game's final 16 points over the last two minutes. Virginia also returns to action on Wednesday when it visits Boston College.
