No. 11 Florida State looks to get one step closer to repeating as ACC regular season champions when it goes to the Dean Smith Center Saturday to take on the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Seminoles have won four games in a row and are two games ahead of Virginia in the standings. North Carolina is fighting just to make the tournament and is currently on the bubble.
Florida State Seminoles
Florida State has won nine of its last ten games, the lone loss coming to Georgia Tech January 30. North Carolina is the toughest team left on the Seminoles schedule, as they also have Boston College and Notre Dame remaining on the schedule.
The Seminoles have a top-10 offense in college basketball and have done an exceptional job of shooting the basketball. The Seminoles are 11th in the country in 3-point shooting.
The Seminoles should have a field day shooting the ball against a North Carolina team that has struggled on the perimeter on both ends.
Senior guard M.J. Walker leads Florida State with 13.1 points and had 21 points the last time thee teams met. Raiquan Gray scores 11.7 points and is grabbing 6.9 rebounds. He had 19 points and five assists in the firs meeting with the Tar Heels.
Freshman guard Scottie Barnes will paly against UNC for the first time and is averaging 10.1 points and 4.4 assists.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The Tar Heels had their most impressive outing of the season last Saturday, pulling away for a 99-54 blowout over Louisville in Chapel Hill. Their two-game winning streak came to an end with an 83-70 loss to Marquette on Wednesday. The two teams agreed to play the non-conference game due to postponements for both teams.
North Carolina has struggled on offense from an efficiency standpoint. The Tar Heels have failed to get consistent production out of their backcourt. North Carolina has an effective field goal percentage of 48.5 and a 3-point percentage of just 31.5. Free throws have also been a problem, as the Tar Heels are shooting 65 percent.
UNC once again has an elite offensive rebounding team, as they are the second in the nation in crashing the glass on offense. UNC and Florida State are both ten of the tallest teams in the nation, but the difference comes down to shooting with these teams.
Armando Bacot leads UNC in points with just under 12 a game. Senior forward Garrison Brooks averages 10.7 points and has had a disappointing campaign after being selected as a preseason All-American. He is also grabbing 7.1 rebounds.
Forward Dayron Sharpe and guard Caleb Love are both in double figures as well.
