It’s a top 25 match up on Saturday afternoon as Virginia Tech makes the short trip to Tallahassee to take on Florida State.
Both teams were expected to be good teams coming into the season, but experts didn’t expect this good.
Virginia Tech won both match ups last year in high scoring affairs.
Virginia Tech Hokies
The Virginia Tech Hokies are finally seeing the results people expected when Buzz Williams took over the team a couple years back.
They come into this game with a 12-2 record including a win over Duke. However they lost their last game against NC State by a final score of 104-78.
Tech likes to play an up tempo pace and really push the ball. They average 83.7 points per game and shoot 49 percent from the field.
For playing an up tempo pace they do play good defense too. Although they give up 70.6 points per game opposing teams only shoot 42.3 percent and 30.6 percent from behind the arc.
One thing to watch in this game is injuries.
Seth Allen and Khadim Sly are both questionable for Saturday’s game. Allen averages 10.3 points per game and Sly averages 4. If they are not able to go that is a big hit to the bench depth of the Hokies.
Florida State Seminoles
Florida State has always been a football school, but Leonard Hamilton and his staff is trying to turn it into a basketball school.
Coming into this season Florida State was expected to be good but was still expected to be a bubble team for an NCAA tournament. However if the season ended today they might be a top four seed.
Their only loss comes against the Temple Owls early in the season. Besides that game they have run the table, and are coming off a big win over Virginia.
Florida State averages 86 points per game, and that number jumps up to 92 per game at home. They really push the tempo.
The reason they are able to push the tempo is because they play a ton of guys. They have 13 players who play at least 9 minutes a game, which in today’s college basketball is unheard of.
At home this season Florida State is a perfect 10-0.
