Seminoles Win 72-63, Now 7-3 in the ACC

With 26 NBA scouts in attendance, it seemed that Leonard Hamilton’s M.O. was to have Chris Singleton demonstrate his versatility. He guarded all five positions, spent some time shadowing Shumpert, roamed loose in the passing lanes while he guarded lesser players, shot from outside, showed off his midrange game, and even was called upon to single handedly break the press on multiple occasions. He finished with 16 points (on a ridiculously efficient 6 shots), 10 rebounds and 2 steals. In the sideshow, FSU won 72–63, in a 68 possession game.

FSU never trailed, and held a comfortable lead most of the way until Georgia Tech made a run to cut it to 7 with 4:57 remaining. But Florida State hit enough FTs down the stretch to win comfortably. Michael Snaer added 15 points, and Okaro White had a very solid game with 12 points and 6 boards. The game shouldn’t have been as close at it was, but everyone not named Chris Singleton lost focus in the 2nd half, and we turned the ball over 11 times (17 in the game). We also failed to establish any sort of post game against a very overmatched interior, with Jon Kreft, Bernard James and Xavier Gibson combining for 4 points. Tech shot under 30%, but stayed in the game by rebounding 46% of their misses. Iman Shumpert and Glen Rice combined for 49 points but it took them 51 shots to get there.

This was a must win for the Noles. It will only marginally help our resume, but it’s essential not to suffer any more bad losses. We’re now 7-3 in conference with Virginia  coming to town on Saturday.
