Podcast: BC hoops preview, loss at Georgia Tech

FSU has three more road games before returning home

NCAA Basketball: Boston College at Florida State Glenn Beil-USA TODAY Sports

FSU played twice this week, destroying Miami at home and then dropping a disappointing game at Georgia Tech. There wasn’t too much to talk about from the Miami win, as everyone is blowing them out. Florida State won 81-59, which is what you want to see vs a bad team.

The loss to Georgia Tech, however, was different. It’s not the loss that is concerning - GT is a good team - but rather how they lost. We’ve had flashes all year of a turnover prone team that stagnates in the half court, and then in this game all of that finally came to light. The ‘Noles are now 14th in ACC play in turnovers, and it is slowing down what otherwise is a very efficient offense. Many of the turnovers vs. the Yellow Jackets also led to easy transition buckets, which is a recipe for a loss.

So how good is FSU? We take a few minutes to do a deeper dive into the team’s floor and ceiling.

Finally, we tackle Boston College. They’re last in the ACC, but they’ve dropped some close ones including a 1-point loss at Duke. Their magic formula is lots of early 3s, which can lend FSU some problems.
