FSU's transition game could spark Seminoles

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

The Seminoles got out and ran against Maine in a blowout win on Sunday, a potential sign of things to come.

Florida State's 91-59 win over Maine on Sunday not only put the team over .500 at 5-4, but it could have served as just the spark the Seminoles' men's basketball team needs to get going, as Corey Clark of the Tallahassee Democrat writes.

Granted, the Black Bears weren't the strongest opponent for the Seminoles. But Florida State's season-low seven turnovers and improved offensive efficiency could potentially be a sign of things to come as the team gears up for ACC play. Head coach Leonard Hamilton certainly hopes so, and he said he was encouraged by the team's play in transition:

"We went into the game kind of wanting to re-establish ourselves in transition," Hamilton said. "We wanted to get out and run a little more and try to attack a little more in transition."

The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Seminoles, the last of which was a 72-47 drubbing at the hands of the rival No. 7 Florida Gators. The Seminoles also have losses to South Alabama and Mercer on their early-season resume, so getting a blowout win over a perceived lesser opponent can only do the team good before the schedule gets tougher.
