Alexa Deluzio continued to be a thorn in Boston College's side Sunday, guiding No. 21 Florida State to its fourth straight victory, 76-70, in each team's Atlantic Coast Conference opener.

Deluzio, who scored a career-high 28 points at BC (6-5) in a 68-59 win last year, tallied 25 points and 12 rebounds Sunday. Natasha Howard also had a double-double for the Seminoles (11-1) with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Florida State entered leading the ACC in field goal percentage at 49.5 percent, and made 50 percent (31 of 62) Sunday, though they made 1 of 6 from 3-point range.

The Eagles trailed 37-30 at halftime but held close in the second. BC's Katie Zenevitch made a layup to cut Florida State's lead to 72-70 with 1:52 left, but Morgan Toles hit a jumper and Deluzio and two free throws for the Seminoles while the Eagles missed their last three shots.
