Turnovers and Lack of Defense Spell Another Road Loss

With a horrible WakeForest team as their first opponent without Chris Singleton, it was difficult to judge how this team would really respond. Now, with a road trip to Maryland in the books, it’s clear that the Seminoles’ hopes for a 3rd consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament are in danger. The offense, despite a 9-point outburst by Deividas Dulkys in the first two minutes, struggled all night. And more importantly the defense did as well. After allowing greater than a point per possession to only one ACC team this season, the Seminoles – without Singleton anchoring the defense – gave up a remarkable 1.13 in a game that the Terps won 78-62.

Jordan Williams recorded his 21st double-double of the year, and four other Terps scored in double digits, led by freshman Terrell Stoglin’s 17.

Derwin Kitchen led the Noles with 16 points and 7 boards. Deividas Dulkys (14) and Terrance Shannon (12) also scored in double digits. Shannon , Kitchen and Michael Snaer combined for 13 of the Seminole’s 17 turnovers.

FSU next plays Miami  on Saturday in a game critical to their tourney hopes.
