Clemson Vs. Florida State Game Preview: Noles Look To Cap Off With A Win

Florida State has locked up the No. 3 seed in the ACC tournament, but they look to close out the season with a win at home over Clemson.

The Florida State Seminoles have one more regular season ACC matchup to go before they get ready for the conference tournament. The Noles have already locked up a high seed in the tournament, but they'd also like to cap off the regular season with a win at home against the Clemson Tigers. The Noles lost to Clemson by 20 points in their first meeting this season, so Florida State is hoping they can even the score and make it two wins in a row heading into the ACC tournament.

Clemson rides into the game with a three-game winning streak with the hopes of extending it to four games and sweeping Florida State in the regular season series. The Noles have struggled lately, so Clemson could take advantage of that and steal a game on the road from the No. 3 seed in the ACC tournament. If the Tigers can jump out to an early lead, it will be tough for a team like Florida State to play catch up, especially if Clemson forces FSU to shoot as poorly as in the first matchup.
