Basketball preview: FSU vs. Virginia


FSU vs. Virginia

When/where: 7; Tucker Center, Tallahassee

TV/radio: ESPN2; 1040-AM

Records: Virginia 20-9, 10-6 ACC; FSU 15-14, 7-9

Notable: The Cavaliers took a big step toward an NCAA berth with Thursday's win over Duke, then a big step back Sunday with a loss at a weak Boston College team. They're 62nd in the RPI rankings, with wins over the Blue Devils, North Carolina, N.C. State and Wisconsin (in Madison) but losses to three Colonial Athletic Association teams. … Junior G Joe Harris is one of the ACC's best players. He's second in the conference with 17.3 ppg and first in 3-point percentage (46.3), and he's dangerous from mid range as well. … The Seminoles have lost three of four and have two tough home games left, finishing the regular season against the Wolfpack.
