Previewing the Battle-4-Atlantis

36

What happens when a team that turns the ball over (279th in the nation) meets a team who's specialty is forcing turnovers (14th)? Ugly basketball. Leonard Hamilton's teams have never taken care of the ball (only twice in the top-200 in his 10 years at FSU) but this year has been special. They're coughing it up on 25.2% of their trips, which is worst of his tenure. Especially frustrating for fans is that FSU is finally shooting the ball well (55.9 eFG%) and is relentless on the offensive glass, grabbing 44.8% of their own misses. So on possessions when they don't turn it over they're averaging 1.49 points per possession. For comparison, Duke – who has an elite offense – is averaging 1.41 per trip that doesn't end in a turnover.
