GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Boris Bojanovsky took a pass from Okaro White and threw down a dunk with 0.4 seconds left to lift Florida State past Maryland 67-65 in Thursday's second round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Bojanovsky's dunk capped a tense final 2 minutes that saw Maryland fight back from an 11-point deficit and twice tie it. But the final score advanced the ninth-seeded Seminoles (19-12) and ended the eighth-seeded Terrapins' long run in the ACC as it heads for the Big Ten this summer.

With the seconds ticking down, Ian Miller sent a pass into the post for White, who immediately flipped the ball to a waiting Bojanovsky on the left block for the winning score.

It sent FSU into Friday's quarterfinals to play No. 6 Virginia, the tournament's top seed.

Dez Wells scored 18 points to lead Maryland (17-15), including two free throws with 15.1 seconds left to tie it.
