Florida State beats Colorado, reaches 3rd straight Sweet 16
4 seed Florida State pulled away in the second half to beat Colorado 71-53 Monday night and advance to the Sweet 16 for the third straight NCAA Tournament. Florida State (18-6) advanced to face East region No. Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton — recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon — again wore a boot as he walked the sideline. Calhoun broke away for a fast-break dunk, then Scottie Barnes drained a contested runner to push Florida State's lead back to seven. Balsa Koprivica dunked, was fouled and made the free throw to put Florida State up nine.
