FSU 69, BC 60 box score

1. Devon Bookert scored 18 points and has been in double figures in 11 of 14 ACC games. He made 4-5 3s, and is now shooting 44% from deep on the year. His 3s pushed him past LaMarr Greer and Delvon Arrington on the all time list for FSU, where he is now 12th with 124. The next player to pass is Tharon Mayes, who made 128. Bookert's career 3-point shooting of 45.4% is 2nd all time, slightly behind LaRae Davis's 45.7%.

2. Robbie Berwick played 14 minutes off the bench, scoring 7 points and picking up an assist and two rebounds. Florida State desperately needs some instant offense off the bench, which is good news for Berwick if he can continue shooting the ball with confidence. He's made 41% of his 3s in ACC play, compared to just 24% in out of conference games.

3. Florida State made 8-12 3s (67%) which was their best shooting game from the arc since last year's Georgetown victory in the NIT. After being one of the worst 3-point shooting teams in the nation through most of the year, the Noles have made 27-56 (48%) over the past four games. That has moved them from 14th in the ACC (conference only games) to 4th.

4. Florida State's attendance was 6,387, which was slightly higher than when FSU hosted Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, and Clemson. The Noles have two home games left, versus Louisville and Pittsburgh.

5. FSU won 69-60 in a 63 possession game. It was the third time in four games that FSU scored at least 1.10 points per possession. The Noles defense has held five of the past six opponents below a point per possession.  In the remaining games FSU faces defenses ranked 2nd, 7th, 105th, and 197th nationally, and offenses ranked 19th, 22nd, 51st, and 72nd.
