The Seminoles look for their 8th straight ACC win as they travel to Boston College.

The Florida State University Men's Basketball team (16-6, 7-1) travels to Boston College (7-16, 2-7) tonight for an ACC matchup. The Seminoles are coming off of their school-best 7th straight conference win over then 16th ranked Virginia Cavaliers. The Boston College Eagles are coming off of a loss against Georgia Tech.

Every ACC win from here on out is a historic win for the Seminoles basketball program as they look to improve on their best ACC regular season in school history. Florida State already holds wins and tie breakers over North Carolina and Duke and their only conference blemish was a puzzling 20-point loss against the Clemson Tigers. With Duke already having their second ACC loss on Sunday against Miami, FSU could sit alone in first place in the ACC standings if Duke beats UNC when they play in Chapel Hill tonight. They need this, and, of course, their own win tonight against the Eagles.

Florida State's defense has been consistently elite over the past couple of years of Leonard Hamilton's tenure in Tallahassee. Now, the Seminoles offense is finally following suit and we're seeing the results from that. We're seeing fewer turnovers, which comes with more familiarity between the Seminoles, and a better 3-point percentage. The Noles lead the ACC in 3-point shooting percentage in conference, led by Michael Snaer bringing his 3-point percentage up to 41.0 percent.

The players to watch for the Boston College Eagles are Matt Humphrey (team leading 10.1 ppg), Ryan Anderson (6.8 rpg), and Jordan Daniels (2.3 apg). The Eagles have the worst offense in the ACC, averaging 59.3 ppg.

The player I'm interested in watching on the Seminoles is Okaro White. Okaro is coming off one of his best games in a Florida State uniform with 13 points and 5 rebounds. How will Okaro White perform following this performance?

This game tips at 7PM EST and will be airing on ESPN3.
Prediction: FSU 70 - BC 53
