Florida State guard Ian Miller's last second three-pointer gave the Seminoles a 63-60 win over Virginia.

Ian Miller's three-pointer with 0.8 seconds remaining completed a furious comeback, as the No. 22 Florida St. Seminoles stunned the No. 24 Virginia Cavaliers, 63-60, in Charlottesville, Virginia on Thursday night.

Despite leading by nine at the half, the Seminoles trailed the Cavaliers 58-47 with 4:33 to play. After a pair of free throws by Michael Snaer, Miller tossed the team on his back, scoring six straight points in a span of two seconds on a layup plus a free throw and capitalizing on a turnover to drain a three-point attempt to cut Virginia's lead to three points. Miller assisted on a game-tying three-pointer by Deividas Dulkys with 1:54 remaining before hitting his game-winner with under a second to play.

On the night, Miller had a team-high 18 points on six of 10 shooting, including 5-8 from beyond the arc. Snaer and Xavier Gibson each added 12 points. Florida State improves to 20-9 with the win and are 11-4 within the ACC. The Seminoles close out their regular season schedule with a home game against the Clemson Tigers.

Miller's late-game heroics spoiled a solid night by Virginia's Mike Scott, who scored 28 points on 9-15 shooting and had a game-high 10 rebounds in the loss. The Cavaliers dropped to 21-8 and 8-7 in the ACC, with their regular season concluding on the road against the Maryland Terrapins on Sunday afternoon.
