UVA's Kyle Guy celebrates a three. "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". Junior guard Braxton Key came off the bench to add 20 points for the Cavaliers. "That's his game. He's kind of a complete player who does a little bit of everything". FSU (12-2, 0-1 ACC) shot just 34 percent from the field and the late flurry made that look better than it was.

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.

· Florida State had nine offensive rebounds in the first half, but only scored one second-chance point.

Earlier this week, the Seminoles (12-2, 0-1 ACC) said that they expected the game to be a test of wills and a contrast of styles - FSU's aggressive, quick-strike offense against Virginia's snail-paced approach.

Another Japanese star, though, played superb as Kei Nishikori as he demolished Jeremy Chardy 6-2, 6-2 in the men's semifinals. Open final and she's still coming to terms with it. "I think I just dug deep today, and that's important".

Virginia led 27-21 late in the first half before Key hit a 3-pointer to spark a 15-2 run to end the half. Key scored seven and Guy six in the burst, which gave the Cavaliers a 42-23 lead at the break. The Seminoles finished with as many turnovers as field goals, leading to 21 Virginia points. Virginia sophomore guard Brianna Tinsley scored 11 points in the first half, while senior forward Mone Jones scored 10.

Over the seven decades and more that the FSU football team has been talking the field of play, the Seminoles have fielded some wonderful programs - some among the best in the history of the ACC and numerous best teams to ever play in the state of Florida when it comes to both talent on the field and championships won. Both teams missed field goal attempts with their next possessions, giving Virginia the ball with 4.1 seconds remaining.

Virginia will next face Boston College on the road Wednesday night at 9 P.M., coverage on WINA will begin at 8 P.M.
