North Carolina Vs. Florida State: Seminoles Host Third-Ranked Tar Heels In ACC Battle

The Florida State Seminoles (10-6, 1-1 ACC) welcome the No. 3 team in the land, the North Carolina Tar Heels (15-2, 2-0) to the Donald L. Tucker Center in Tallahassee on Saturday afternoon. Tipoff is scheduled for 2:00 PM ET and the game will be televised on ESPN.

The Florida State Seminoles (10-6, 1-1 ACC) welcome the No. 3 team in the land, the North Carolina Tar Heels (15-2, 2-0) to the Donald L. Tucker Center in Tallahassee on Saturday afternoon. Tipoff is scheduled for 2:00 PM ET and the game will be televised on ESPN.

Florida State will be looking for their second conference win, and first ACC home victory. The Seminoles were trounced 79-59 by the Clemson Tigers on the road last Saturday, but did bounce back with a hard-fought 63-59 road win over Virginia Tech on Tuesday.

The key for the Seminoles in defeating the Tar Heels will be hitting the glass. North Carolina has been outrebounded in both their losses (to UNLV and Kentucky), and in Florida State's 10 victories they have a plus-9.9 rebounding advantage. In the Seminoles six losses, they have a minus-2.6 rebounding margin.

North Carolina will be hitting the road after a lengthy nine game homestand. It will be the Tar Heels first time away from home since December 3, a span of 42 days.

North Carolina has won five straight games against Florida State, the last two victories coming on game-winning shots.
