No. 17 Florida State Basketball at Georgia Tech Game Thread

FSU looks to sweep the Yellow Jackets

NCAA Basketball: Georgia Tech at Florida State Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports

It’s a Saturday filled with college basketball and FSU is one of the many teams in action. 14 days ago, Florida State defeated Georgia Tech 59-49 in a game the Yellow Jackets successfully mucked up. Now the Seminoles look to run their winning streak to seven games by earning their third ACC road victory of the season.

At 11-14 on the season, Tech has obviously struggled. But Josh Pastner’s team does possess an elite defense with a unique match-up zone that frustrates and confuses even the best offenses. The Seminoles will need to create turnovers with their own D, allowing them to score before Georgia Tech gets their half-court defense set, as well as hit the offensive glass if they want to pull off the sweep. When they are forced to execute out of the half-court, FSU needs to be patient and make their open looks from the perimeter.

A pair of Seminole snipers, M.J. Walker and Devin Vassell, call the Atlanta area home so I’m sure they will be excited to perform in front of friends and family.

The game tips at 2:00pm Eastern and can be streamed on ACC Network Extra.
