Location: United Center, Chicago, IL
Florida State vs. North Carolina Live TV: ESPN2
The Seminoles have made it to the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament, which should be good enough to get them into the NIT, but they aren’t going to get any further than this in Greensboro. The Noles have won three in a row and now have 18 wins on the season, but if you look at the games that they have played against the great teams this year in the ACC, you’ll see how great the margin is between them and the pack. FSU lost to NC State on the road by 18, Miami by six at home, Miami by 24 on the road, Duke by 19, and this North Carolina outfit at the Dean Smith Center by 21. The Tar Heels are decidedly the better of these two teams, and they are going to be playing off of a bye in the first round of this tournament, and with home court advantage on their side. Carolina is going to want to get that sour taste of its mouth of getting racked at home by the Dookies in its last regular season game. F James Michael McAdoo and the crew should put together an easy victory.
