TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Leticia Romero scored a career-high 24 points, including five free throws in the final 17 seconds, and No. 12 Florida State defeated No. 17 Miami 70-67 on Sunday to end the regular season.

After Romero’s first two free throws made it 67-61, she fouled Michelle Woods, who converted a 3-point play. Following two more free throws at 7.5 seconds, Adrienne Motley drained a 3-pointer. By the time Romero was fouled on the inbounds play, only .2 seconds remained and she hit one of two foul shots.

Shakayla Thomas had 14 of her 22 points in the second half for the Seminoles (23-6, 13-3), who were locked into the fourth-seed for the ACC tournament.

Motley led the Hurricanes (22-7, 10-6), the fifth seed, with 18 points and Jessica Thomas added 14 points.

The Seminoles erased a six-point deficit with an 11-1 run and were up 65-58 with 51 seconds left.
