Battle 4 Atlantis Bracket: Florida State Takes On The Connecticut Huskies For Third Place

The Florida State Seminoles and Connecticut Huskies entered the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament in the Bahamas as the only ranked teams, but after a pair of upsets, the two BCS schools will be playing for third place on Saturday afternoon.

Connecticut blew a 17-point lead Friday in losing to the UCF Knights 68-63. After taking a 50-33 lead early in the second half, the Huskies allowed UCF to score on 16 of their final 22 possessions, ending a 16-game UConn winning streak.

Florida State lost an ugly game to Harvard, falling 46-41 despite holding the Crimson to 27.3 percent shooting from the floor. The Seminoles were undone by their own 36.2 percent shooting and 16 turnovers. Missing their first 15 shots from the floor also did not aid Florida State.

Florida State leads the all-time series between the two schools 4-2, though the two teams have not met since a 67-60 Seminoles win in November of 1997.
