CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP/WDBJ7)-- The UVA men's basketball team pulled off the win in Charlottesville Tuesday against the #5 Seminoles, 61-56.

Kihei Clark scored 15 points and hit the go-ahead layup with 59 seconds left as Virginia ended No. 5 Florida State's 10-game winning streak. Virginia trailed 56-55 before Clark drove left down the lane, reached across and banked his shot in on the right side of the basket.

After Devin Vassell missed a jumper for the Seminoles, Mamadi Diakite hit a pair of free throws with 13.9 seconds left for Virginia. The Seminoles had a chance to tie, but Wyatt Wilkes and Trent Forrest both missed 3-point tries and Braxton Key added a pair of free throws for Virginia.
