(Tallahassee, Florida-AP) -- Tim Pickett scored 25 of his career-high 33 points in the second half tonight to lead Florida State to an 81-65 victory over 15th ranked Georgia Tech.

The Seminoles (16-6, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) also made 16 straight free throws in the second half when they broke open a close game with a 14-0 run to take a 73-56 lead as the Yellow Jackets went scoreless for more than six minutes.
