NCAA Basketball: Florida State at Miami-Florida Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The boys got together to talk (APPLE // SPOTIFY) about the upcoming Notre Dame game, which has the No. 5 FSU Seminoles playing in prime time in front of a sold out crowd. The Irish are one of the best teams in the nation at taking care of the ball, so we dive into how that could affect the game. The Irish also take and make a ton of 3-pointers.

Prior to that discussion, Matt and Michael talk about FSU’s new shiny top-5 ranking in the AP Poll. What does that mean, and how should we be thinking about this team? They also list their top websites to visit for both statistical analysis and X’s and O’s.

Finally, 5* signee Scottie Barnes was in the news as his high school team played in the Hoophall Classic. The games were broadcast on ESPN, and though Michael isn’t a huge fan of watching high school hoops on television, he took one for the team and offers his impression on this uber recruit. Barnes was also bumped up this morning at ESPN from the No. 8 player in the nation to the No. 4. We’ll wait to see how that affects his composite rating at 247, but it’s highly likely that he’ll be the highest rated recruit at FSU in the modern era.
