Seminoles can't get it done against Butler

HONOLULU (AP)-Matt Howard scored 19 points and Shelvin Mack added 17, all in the second half, to lift Butler past Florida State 67-64 in a semifinal game of the Diamond Head Classic on Thursday night.

The Bulldogs (8-4) won their fourth in a row and advanced to Saturday's tournament championship game against Washington State. The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for the Seminoles (10-3).

Howard grabbed nine rebounds and Mack had five assists for Butler, which also got 11 points from Chase Stigall.

Butler led by as many as 15 points with 8:44 left, but Florida State came back and was within four in the final minute. Howard stole the ball and hit a pair of free throws to make it 67-61.

Chris Singleton, who hit a 3-pointer as time expired, scored 26 of his game-high 28 points in the second half for Florida State.

The Seminoles final game in Hawaii will by on Christmas night (7:30 pm EST) against No. 15 Baylor (8-2), who were upset by Washington State late Thursday.
