Florida State was considered one of the first four teams left out of the NCAA tournament by the selection committee.
Florida State's Aaron Thomas was four points shy of matching his career-high in the National Invitation Tournament opener Tuesday, but that didn't stop him from asking to sit with 1:46 remaining in a close game. The sophomore had played every minute and carried the Seminoles in the second half.
Florida State doesn't seem to have room for any mistakes. The Seminoles took advantage of a couple of key ones by Boston College to pull out an important victory.
Florida State's already dim NCAA Tournament hopes appeared to be fading away when Wake Forest took a 16-point lead in the first half of Saturday night's game between two struggling ACC teams.
Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton switched starting lineups despite being without his top scorer Wednesday night. A three-game losing streak will lead to a few experiments.
Aaron Thomas hit a career-high six 3-pointers and scored 24 points to lead Florida State to a 70-50 victory over Virginia Tech in Atlantic Coast Conference action. The Seminoles broke a season-high three-game losing streak in the process.
Coach Leonard Hamilton didn't call the final play for Ian Miller, but the Florida State senior wasn't giving up the rock with the game on the line.
The Seminoles were 16 of 24 from behind the arc after hitting 10 in the previous four games combined. The 16 3-pointers were the third-most in school history and the most by Florida State in ACC play. Okaro White scored 15 and Aaron Thomas finished with 14. Montay Brandon added 13 points and eight rebounds.
Ian Miller's stomach began to hurt shortly before Florida State hosted Maryland on Sunday. He said he hadn't had a stomachache that bad since he was a little kid.

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton found himself strangely encouraged as his Seminoles missed their first five shots and turned the ball over twice in the opening 5 minutes against the country's top scoring defense in Clemson.
Lawyers for the man accused by authorities of being the East Coast Rapist allegedly responsible for 17 sexual assaults over a decade say their client is making it difficult to enter an insanity plea for him.
A Connecticut man suspected of rapes along the East Coast since 1997 told investigators he began committing sexual offenses six years before that, two law enforcement officials familiar with the case said Tuesday.
The man suspected of terrorizing women with sexual assaults from Virginia to Rhode Island over 12 years asked, "Why haven't you picked me up sooner?" when he was arrested last week, a prosecutor said Monday in court.
The man authorities call the "East Coast Rapist," who terrorized random women up and down the Eastern Seaboard for more than a decade, faced a judge Monday in the first of what is likely to be numerous sex-assault cases as investigators from Rhode Island to Virginia mix science and shoe leather to bring charges in one of the most terrifying crime sprees in recent history.
"Even though we didn't make the NCAA, we wanted to come into the NIT and still play with that toughness and try to win it," Thomas said.
"Guys don't have egos on this team," Thomas said.
