The Florida State Seminoles ended the regular season on a disappointing note losing the last two games to the Clemson Tigers. The Noles continued to get poor starting pitching as Robert Benincasa and Mike McGee lasted a combined 6 innings pitched giving up 9 earned runs on 9 hits while walking 7 and only striking out 3. Offensively FSU managed to score a respectable 9 runs against the excellent Clemson pitching staff but was carried by the same hitters who have done most of the damage throughout the whole year. On Friday hitters 1-5 went 6-19 (.316) with 3 walks and 5 strikeouts while hitters 6-9 went 1-12 (.083) with 1 walk and 6 strikeouts. The return of Devon Travis on Saturday helped by returning a much needed bat to the lineup and hitters 1-6 went 7-23 (.304) with 3 walks 5 strikeouts while hitters 7-9 went 1-10 (.100) with 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. The Seminoles did win the Atlantic Division on Thursday night earning them the #2 seed overall and will be the top seed in Pool B. The remaining teams in the pool are #3 Georgia Tech, #6 Clemson and #7 NC State. In Pool A the University of Virginia earned the #1 seed and will have to play #4 North Carolina, #5 Miami and #8 Wake Forest. The tournament begins on Wednesday and below is the entire schedule. Wednesday, May 25th 11 a.m. – Georgia Tech vs. Clemson 3 p.m. – Virginia vs. Wake Forest 7 p.m. – Florida State vs. NC State Thursday, May 26th 11 a.m. – North Carolina vs. Miami 3 p.m. – Florida State vs. Clemson 7 p.m. – Georgia Tech vs. NC State Friday, May 27th 11 a.m. – Virginia vs. Miami 3 p.m. – Florida State vs. Georgia Tech 7 p.m. – North Carolina vs. Wake Forest Saturday, May 28th 11 a.m. – Clemson vs. NC State 3 p.m. – Miami vs. Wake Forest 7 p.m. – Virginia vs. North Carolina Sunday, May 29th – Championship Game 1 p.m. – Pool A winner vs. Pool B winner A full preview will come later in the week.

Florida State Defeats Clemson to Claim ACC Atlantic Division

56

It wasn’t the prettiest or sharpest game of the year with a combined 5 errors, 2 hit batsmen and 2 wild pitches but the Noles won 8-6 against the Tigers on Thursday night. Sean Gilmartin overcame a first inning homerun and 2 errors pitching 7+ innings striking out 6 and only walking 1. He was relieved by Brian Busch who gave up a couple hits and was pulled for Daniel Bennett who made things interesting loading the bases but eventually striking out Brad Miller on a 3-2 count. Bennett was much better in the 9th retiring Clemson in order ending the game and earning the crown for the Noles. Offensively Justin Gonzalez and James Ramsey combined for 5 RBI. Credit to the FSU offense as they seemed to counter with a run every time Clemson drew a little bit closer. This win puts Florida State in a very good spot to earn a national seed and 1 more win this weekend would almost guarantee it. I believe with this start tonight and Danny Hultzen having the weekend off Sean Gilmartin earned himself ACC Pitcher of the Year. Congrats to the entire Seminoles team.

Florida State sports news and analysis of FSU athletics

FSU @ Mich St in the 2011 ACC/Big 10 Challenge

7

Should be a good matchup. State loses guards Kalin Lucas and Durrell Summers who played 83% and 73% of their teams minutes, respectively, but they pick up combo guard Brandon Wood as a transfer from Valpo - who is an excellent player. Mich St is somewhat limited on the interior, but are bringing in 5* forward Branden Dawson who is a matchup nightmare due to his strength, effort and athleticism.
