TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Natasha Howard scored 15 of her 17 points in the second half to propel No. 24 Florida State past Virginia Tech in a 70-54 win that snapped a four-game losing streak.

Florida State (15-5, 3-4 ACC) controlled the game from the opening tip, scoring 10 unanswered points in the first 3 ½ minutes and closing out the first half with another 10-0 spurt to take a 42-20 advantage into the break. Virginia Tech narrowed the gap in the second half but the Seminoles never let their lead shrink below double digits.

Emiah Bingley contributed 13 points, while Ivey Slaughter added 12 and also grabbed 12 rebounds for Florida State, which hit 26 of 64 from the field and had 16 steals.

Virginia Tech (10-9, 0-6) was led by Uju Ugoka, who scored 22 points and hauled in 10 rebounds.
