Deluzio's second chance lifts No. 24 FSU past No.9 MarylandMar 1, 2013 - 3:14 AM Florida State to a 72-71 win over No. 9 Maryland on Thursday.
With the game knotted at 71-71, Deluzio was fouled and went to the line for a pair of free throws. Deluzio bricked the first try and saw her second attempt rim out, but Maryland was whistled for a lane violation to give her another opportunity to put the Seminoles in front.
The senior guard knocked it down and the Terrapin's desperation heave was no good as the Seminoles (21-7, 11-6 ACC) secured the No. 4 seed and an opening round bye in the upcoming ACC tournament.
Chelsea Davis poured in a team-high 19 points for the Seminoles.
Katie Rutan chipped in 24 points and Alyssa Thomas finished with 17 points for the Terrapins (22-6, 13-4).
Florida State led 64-47 with just over 4 1/2 minutes left, but Maryland used a 24-7 surge to tie the game with 10 seconds to play.
