TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Matthew Cleveland scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Florida State defeated South Carolina Upstate 80-63 on Tuesday night.

It was Cleveland’s fourth double-double of his career. Darin Green Jr. had three 3-pointers and scored 15 points, 10 in the second half. Caleb Mills added 13 points, all in the first half, with five assists, Naheem McLeod scored 12 and Cameron Corhen 10. The Seminoles (3-9) shot 48% and won their second straight game after snapping a five-game losing streak with a win over Louisville on Saturday.

Floyd Rideau Jr. made four 3-pointers and scored a career-high 20 points for the Spartans (5-5), who had a three-game win streak end. They are 0-3 against the Atlantic Coast Conference this season with losses also to Duke and Clemson. Three other Spartans had nine points apiece including Jordan Gainey, who had recorded three straight 20-plus-point games, but finished shooting 2 for 19.

Leading 38-31 at halftime, the Seminoles opened the second half with a 12-2 run that began with a dunk and layup by the 7-foot-4 McLeod.

The Seminoles maintained a double-digit lead thereafter. The Spartans were within 11 with 3 1/2 minutes remaining but Florida State went on a 9-1 run with three dunks and a 3-pointer for its largest lead of 19 in the final minute.

The Seminoles took its first double-digit lead with 14 seconds left in the first half after Mills and Corhen scored all the points in a 9-0 run. Jordyn Surratt’s 3-point play got the Spartans within seven at the half.
