Update: FSU’s baseball game against Jacksonville has been postponed
Before FSU’s top ten showdown with Louisville the ’Noles climbed to No. 6 in the polls. A lot was riding on this game — win against the ACC’s first-place No. 11 Cardinals and FSU would itself be in first place in the ACC, though Duke is still in control of its own destiny.
With the eyes of the college basketball world once again fixated on Tallahassee, FSU rallied from a double-digit deficit and
destroyed posterized a tough Louisville squad who had their hearts set on revenge to the tune of 82-67.
How they did it is truly remarkable. And they did it in front of an electric crowd that rivaled anywhere else in the country, as (one of) our basketball analyst Matt Minnick confirmed post-game with none other than Jay Bilas. It’s official — Hamsterdam is a hit. Oh, and they did it in front of none other than Bill freakin’ Murray!
Man, special thanks to Bill Murray for taking a pic with Township staff. pic.twitter.com/9C7Wc5zBey— Madison Social (@MadisonSocial) February 24, 2020
