By The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Chelsea Davis made 10 of 13 shots and scored 23 points to lead No. 22 Florida State to a 76-71 Atlantic Coast Conference victory over Georgia Tech on Friday night.

The Seminoles (16-3, 6-2) secured their fourth straight win with a 15-3 run after trailing 65-60 with 7:35 remaining. Alexa Deluzio's three-point play gave them a 69-68 lead at the 4:12 mark before two baskets by Davis and one by Deluzio stretched the lead to 75-68.

Tyaunna Marshall's 26 points led the Yellow Jackets (8-11, 1-7), who have lost five in a row and all eight of their games against ranked opponents.

Georgia Tech has lost twice to Florida State this season after leading both games at halftime.

The Seminoles, who were averaging 48.3 percent from the field, third nationally, shot 52.7 percent (29 of 55) against the Yellow Jackets, including 54.8 percent (17 of 31) in the second half.
