ACC: Noles face top seeded UVA today
The Florida State Seminoles goal to make it into the NCAA Tournament can be helped today with a win over the best team in the ACC Virginia. The tip off today is a noon start time at the Greensboro Coliseum.
FSU enters today’s big ACC Tournament game coming off yesterday’s heart stopping last second win over Maryland.
The Noles hope they can ride that momentum past a very tough Virginia team. The Cavs come into today’s game ranked 5th in the country and the top seed in the ACC Tournament.
In their most recent game last Sunday the Cavaliers endured a 75-69 loss at the hands of the Terrapins , despite a 15-point effort from Anthony Gill at Comcast Center, in College Park Maryland.
The Noles hope for another close game using their tough defense which by the way is the same way Virginia plans to play. This should be a low scoring close battle between two very solid teams.
How They Match Up:
In the paint, the rebound battle will feature Virginia’s No. 97-rated squad against Florida State’s No. 133-rated roster. And in long-range shooting, Virginia rates No. 174 in the country with 5.58 per game, while FSU ranks No. 198 nationally with 5.23 per match.
