College basketball: FSU Seminoles vs. Charlotte 49ers, 2 p.m. Saturday

Florida State vs. Charlotte

When/where: 2 p.m today; Time Warner Cable Arena, Charlotte, N.C.

TV/radio: CBS Sports Network; 1040-AM

Records: FSU 6-4, Charlotte 11-1

Notable: This game is downtown, not on Charlotte's campus, so it's technically a neutral-site game. The Seminoles are coming off of a lackluster 63-48 win over a one-win Louisiana-Monroe squad and travels to face a 49ers team that has only lost once, at Miami. "We know that we have to take some shots, and we know that every once in a while we may make a bad play or miss shots, but you've got to live with it because you've got to be aggressive," FSU G Michael Snaer told the Orlando Sentinel. Chris Braswell, a senior forward, leads Charlotte in scoring (12.6 points per game) and rebounding (6.5 rpg). "(Charlotte is) a team that's trying to carve out a little respect for themselves in the backdoor of ACC country," Seminoles coach Leonard Hamilton told the Sentinel.

  2. Bucs like their offensive line, but PFF, not so much


    As the Bucs prepare for training camp and the buildup to the 2017 season, no position presents more of a he-said-she-said dichotomy than offensive line.

    The Bucs have confidence in third-year left tackle Donovan Smith (76) as well as right guard J.R. Sweezy and center Ali Marpet, shown during mandatory minicamp this month.
