Florida State sends Notre Dame home

By Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) - Bernard James scored 14 points, Michael Snaer added 13 and Florida State showed there's more to its game than defense with a 71-57 upset of second-seeded Notre Dame on Sunday night that put the Seminoles in the regional semifinals for the first time since 1993.

It was an impressive effort by the 10th-seeded Seminoles, who had four players in double figures and were 9 of 19 from 3-point range.

Florida State (23-10) now faces upstart Virginia Commonwealth in the Southwest regional semifinals Friday in San Antonio. The 11th-seeded Rams, maligned as not worthy of being in the 68-team field, stunned third-seeded Purdue earlier Sunday for their third win in five nights.

For Notre Dame, meanwhile, it was another disappointing showing in the NCAA tournament. Ben Hansbrough scored 18 on 5-of-13 shooting before fouling out with 3:19 left.
