Florida State defeats No. 13 Miami on buzzer-beater for epic win in ACC's largest comeback ever
Florida State basketball fans would like to forget much of the 2022-23 season. The Seminole faithful, though, won’t let rival Miami forget about Saturday’s game for a long time.
Leonard Hamilton’s squad shocked No. 13 UM on Saturday in Coral Gables. It was a 23-point Miami advantage at the half and the Hurricanes extended to a 25-point lead early in the second period (50-25, 19:47). When the clock hit 0s, though, FSU was on top 85-84. It’s the largest comeback in ACC history.
Matthew Cleveland was the hero, hitting a 3-point buzzer-beater.
