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

It’s rematch time with Miami (of FL). After needed overtime to escape with a win in Coral Gables three weeks ago, the ‘Noles now get a chance to be the host team. The two programs are going in vastly different directions, with the Seminoles being 21-3 in their last 24 ACC games, while the Hurricanes have gone 7-17.

Remember when so many commenters wondered regularly and loudly why FSU couldn’t have nice things like Jim Larranaga?

Miami is last in the ACC (3-9), while Florida State is 2nd (9-2). It’s likely that the ‘Noles will need a win to keep pace with Duke who play at North Carolina.

A win for FSU is key for a number of reasons, one of which is recruiting. Top-50 junior Deebo Coleman will be in attendance as part of his unofficial visit.

Who will win?
