It’s Tuesday, Florida State fans. Although it has the makings of a quiet day, we’ll keep you up on the latest by updating the news and notes section throughout the day.

Lead Story

Florida State’s women’s basketball team’s school-record tying winning streak is over. The No. 6 Seminoles lost on their home floor Monday night to N.C. State, 70-61.

Forward Chelsea Nelson was unstoppable for the Wolfpack, finishing 8-for-10 from the floor with 17 points and 12 rebounds. Dominique Wilson was just 2-for-12, but made all 14 free throws to lead N.C. State with 19 points. Leticia Romero scored 20 points to lead FSU.

The Seminoles led 49-46 at the end of three quarters, but went stone cold in the final period, shooting just 4-for-16 as a team. N.C. State shot 7-for-12 in the final quarter and 2-for-3 from deep to outscore FSU 24-12 over the last 10 minutes.

The loss snaps FSU’s 12-game winning streak, which tied a school-record. The Seminoles will be in action again Thursday at North Carolina.
