Hold The Phone: Florida State Leading No. 3 UNC 36-28 At Halftime

FSU hosts No. 3 UNC Tarheels in a thrilling college basketball matchup.

ESPN College Gameday and the No. 3 North Carolina Tarheels have come to Tallahassee, taking on the unranked Unconquered on a day most people only care about football. Nevertheless, the Noles have been playing like the world is watching.

At the half, the Seminoles are up 36-28 in an improbable and exciting game thus far. Florida State has beaten 3 of 5 against top five opponents in recent years, with the last coming as a shocker over No. 1 Duke in 2011 that cleared the seats and had students partying on the hardwood for about an hour.

This is the same Florida State team that is 10-6 on the season and 1-1 in the ACC, including losses to Harvard, No. 4 UConn, and No. 12 Florida. On the verge of their first defeat of a ranked opponent (hope I'm not jynxing anything here) my eyes are glued to the screen, and yours should be too.

Let's Go Noles!

For reference to FSU's ability on the court, they are 14th in college ball in rebounds per game, 140th in points per game. It's about time the Noles started converting possession into points.
