- With the win, FSU improves to 5-4 in ACC play. Entering the game, Team Rankings gave FSU a 66% chance of dancing. Following the game, that jumped to 84%. The Seminoles are in a 3-way tie for 5th in conference, along with North Carolina and North Carolina State.
- Braian Angola is 5th in ACC play, averaging 18.2 points per game. He’s scored at least 14 points in every conference game. The senior is 5th in conference in drawing fouls, has made 90% of his FTs, and 41% of his 3s.
- Florida State was dominant in the paint vs Miami, making 67% of their 2s. In Jim Larranaga’s seven-year tenure at Miami, this was just the 6th time one of his teams allowed opponents to convert at that high a rate inside the arc. The only player on FSU’s roster that failed to make at least half his 2s was Trent Forrest, who went 0-1. The tallest player on FSU’s roster (Christ Koumadje) and the smallest player on FSU’s roster (CJ Walker) combined to make 11-13.
- Early in the year, Coach Hamilton repeatedly stated that his team was a better free throw shooting team than they were showing. After shooting 66% from the stripe in out of conference play, FSU has upped that to 73.1% in ACC games. Florida State is also going to the line more frequently than any other ACC team.
- FSU won 103-94, in a 73 possession game. It was the first time a Jim Larranaga team surrendered 100+ points since his 2010 George Mason team did it in the NIT. FSU scored 1.41 points per possession, which is the fourth most in the Leonard Hamilton era. It was the 2nd most efficient game by any ACC team in conference play this year, trailing only the 1.45 per possession that North Carolina scored against Boston College.
