 TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -Sam Young scored 21 points, including two critical baskets in the final 1:51, as No. 3 Pittsburgh overcame 33 percent shooting Sunday to remain undefeated with a 56-48 victory over Florida State.
Young's tip-in broke a 48-48 tie and he followed with a jump shot with a minute left before Jermaine Dixon closed it out with two layups for the Panthers (12-0), who nearly wasted a 17-0 run that gave them a 43-34 lead with 8:53 left.
But Florida State (11-2) caught up one more time and tied it at 48 on Uche Echefu's jumper with 2:23 left.
Toney Douglas scored 20 points to lead the Seminoles, who shot 29.8 percent. No other Florida State player had more than two field goals.
Dixon, who played for Tallahassee Community College the last two years, finished with 11 points and DeJuan Blair added 10 points and 12 rebounds, helping Pitt to a 42-36 advantage on the boards.
No. 25 Clemson 91, Miami 72
and No. 25 Clemson easily overcame an early 12-point deficit on the way to winning the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams.

Jack McClinton scored 20 points for Miami (7-3, 0-1), which doomed itself with a season-high 22 turnovers - 12 in the final 11 minutes of the first half, a stretch where the Hurricanes were outscored 29-9 - and by missing 12 of its first 17 free throws.
Miami finished 12-for-26 from the line.
