It’s March, and when you’re a basketball school that means there is a lot to talk about. (APPLE // SPOTIFY) We begin with FSU’s thrilling win over Notre Dame. M.J. Walker had a stretch to remember during the 2nd half, and then of course Trent Forrest came up huge on the final possessions. Prior to that, Florida State couldn’t stop Notre Dame. Some of that was just getting beat on defense, and some was poor to average shooters having career nights. It’s no coincidence that Prentiss Hubb and John Mooney combined to go 1-7 from deep in the 2nd half. They just aren’t the bombers we saw in the first half.
Couple that with ND’s thin roster getting worn down, and there was the recipe for FSU’s 13-point comeback in the final ten minutes.
Matt also throws a curve ball and without warning asks Michael to choose between Trent Forrest and Terance Mann. We’d love to hear any takes you may have in the comments.
We spend some time discussing Championship Week on ESPN. A lot of the small conferences are battling for their chance in the sun, and it’s likely that FSU’s first round opponent in the NCAA tourney will come from a team that wins their conference this week.
Then it’s on to Boston College. Florida State will be heavily favored in this game (think 17+), but we talk about how BC could pull the upset, however remote the chances.
