As the FSU basketball team tries to continue their conference winning streak, which now sits at seven straight, Seminole fans should also keep an eye on the big showdown between the Duke Blue Devils and UNC Tar Heels. Florida State holds a tie-breaker over both teams' heads at the moment and with Duke's recent letdown against Miami, they have an additional game up on the Blue Devils. Should Duke come away with the victory, it would give both powerhouses two losses in conference play and provide some breathing room for the Noles atop the ACC.
During this fantastic seven game stretch, the Seminoles have knocked off three ranked opponents in a three week stretch and done so in an impressive fashion. Though their offense is still not fantastic, it looks far more fluid and much less disjointed. It's fair to say that many have been waiting for the Noles to have a lapse in their focus at some point over the past three weeks, but that has not happened. They have kept up the intensity and continued to play well, which is extremely impressive. The Noles will take on Boston College tonight, a team who is currently 7-16 overall and are carrying a streak of their own, of the losing variety. The Eagles have dropped six straight and Florida State is looking to make it a cool seven.
Michael Snaer has been playing very well as of late with outstanding confidence and more and more confidence as the season goes on. He is looking like the player he was expected to be out of high school. Snaer is shooting 41% from beyond the arch on the year and averaging nearly 14 which is very well above his career average. It's nice to see the Noles with seems to be a consistent go to weapon on offense. Tip off tonight is at 7:00 p.m
