CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Natasha Howard tied career-highs with 27 points and 18 rebounds in No. 18 Florida State's 68-63 win over Miami Thursday night.

The Seminoles (14-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) pushed ahead in the second half when Howard hit a jumper and two free throws, and Morgan Jones sank a 3-pointer during an 8-3 run to lead 57-50 with 8:07 remaining.

Miami (9-6, 1-1) pulled back within two after a Keyona Hayes layup and a Krystal Saunders 3-pointer, but Howard countered with three free throws and a layup to increase Florida State's lead back to five. Miami pulled within three, but Cheetah Delgado and Jones each hit free throws to seal it.

Howard was 11 of 17 from the field and grabbed seven offensive boards. Jones scored 17 points and Delgado added 10 with 10 assists.

Saunders led the Hurricanes with 16 points and Caprice Jassany Williams had 12 with 11 rebounds.
