Florida State never trailed in its 61-60 victory over Miami on Saturday, extending its winning streak to seven games this season.

It also completed a stretch of four games in eight days, which may have caused some fatigue in the second half vs. the Hurricanes.

Miami nearly came all the way back from a 26-point deficit in the second half to beat Florida State. Isaiah Wong’s mid-range jumper went just wide of the hoop, giving the Seminoles their ninth straight win over their in-state rival.

After the game, coach Leonard Hamilton was honest in his assessment of his team. He said Florida State perhaps played its best and worst halves of basketball all season on Saturday.

Those kinds of swings can happen at the end of a tough portion of your schedule.
