After edging past UNC Greensboro in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, the Florida State Seminoles Men’s Basketball team faced No. 5 seed Colorado in the second round. The ’Noles crushed the Buffaloes last night for a 71-53 victory. Up next — the No. 1 seed Michigan Wolverines. A big thanks to Brett Nevitt for covering FSU hoops up in Indianapolis.
It’s time to celebrate just how special this win was:

Ahem. Losing to a 15 seed? Couldn’t be our team.
I was worried about tweeting before the game ended but realized we won’t blow an 11 point lead like that other school did vs a 15 seed.— Danny Kanell (@dannykanell) March 23, 2021
Their season may have ended, but we couldn’t be more proud:
Beyond proud of this group and the belief, hard work and commitment they put into this crazy season. So grateful for each and every one of these amazing young women and for the privilege to coach them. #NoleFAMILY ❤️ ♾ https://t.co/oPdPKs8AWi— Brooke Wyckoff (@CoachBrookeFSU) March 22, 2021
It didn’t have any outcome on the game but this might be the worst call in the history of the sport of basketball.
