Basketball

Florida State women’s basketball, after prepping for NC State, will be facing off against Clemson at home. It’ll be televised on ACC Network Extra.

As for the men, they’ve raised their offensive game to another level. Kevin Little broke it down in words and in video how FSU basketball has stepped up:

Before the break, Florida State was shooting a mediocre 33.9% from beyond the arc. Upon return, that number has jumped to a ludicrous 52.7%. Likewise, their free throw percentage has skyrocketed 22 percentage points to 91.7%. All of this has been good for a jump from the 40th best offense to the 12th according to kenpom’s offensive efficiency metric.
