TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Devon Bookert scored 16 points off the bench, going 4 for 4 on 3-pointers, as Florida State defeated Georgia Tech 81-71 on Sunday.

The Seminoles (17-11, 8-8 ACC) kept their slim NCAA tournament hopes alive with the win, with two regular-season games remaining.

Okaro White finished with 18 for Florida State as Aaron Thomas added 15. Montay Brandon grabbed a game-high 12 rebounds.

Georgia Tech (13-16, 4-12) lost its fourth consecutive and has dropped six of seven. Robert Carter Jr. scored 20 points and snatched six rebounds while Trae Golden chipped in 16 points. Daniel Miller finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Florida State winds up the season at Boston College and at home against No. 4 Syracuse. The Seminoles likely need to win both to remain on the tournament bubble.
