Not since our loss to Duke in the 2009 ACC Championship game has FSU scored a point per possession in a post-season game. The opening round of this year’s ACC Tourney continued that trend, as the offense laid an egg in a 52-51 loss to Virginia Tech. Derwin Kitchen’s buzzer-beater was waived off after the officials reviewed the monitor, and now the Seminoles have to wait until tomorrow evening to find out where they’ll be heading for the NCAA Tournament. It will likely be as a double digit seed, and could potentially be in a play-in game.
FSUs defense played one of their best games of the season, limiting the conference’s third best offense to just 0.85 points per possesssion. The Hokies shot 32% from the field. This game was widely considered a play-in game for them, as most bracketologists had them eliminated with a loss.
Virginia Tech advances to play Duke in today's 2nd semi-final. It will follow the North Carolina/Clemson game set to tip at 1pm.
