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.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The night was arranged to honor former Rays manager Joe Maddon in his first visit back to the Trop, and the standing ovation from the bipartisan crowd and scoreboard video tribute seemed proper acknowledgments of his hefty role in the Rays' success during his nine-year stint.

    Chris Archer's night ended with his 11th loss, but he and the Rays should feel good about his six solid innings. After the forearm tightness scare in Chicago, he had two rough outings (15 hits, 11 runs, seven innings), so Tuesday was a reassuring rebound.

    ST. PETERSBURG — On this particular night, he's the other guy. He's like a talk-show guest scooted to the end of the couch. He is Kevin Cash. And the Rays manager is standing in the home dugout at Tropicana Field.
