Why Florida State Will Win
The Seminoles have learned how to win in a variety of ways.
They’ve won eight of their last nine by being consistent form the field, but they hit everything from three against Virginia and won, couldn’t hit from three against Pitt and won, got bombed on from the outside by Wake Forest and won, and on and on.

It dropped seven of its last eight by not making threes, and it lost when it did hit from the outside. It’s not a good team on the offensive glass, it’s way too inconsistent overall, and …

It’s not a rock from the field, but it comes up with a slew of blocks, it doesn’t commit a ton of fouls, and it’s good from the line when it gets there.
