College basketball preview capsule: Florida State Seminoles at Virginia Cavaliers

>>TONIGHT

No. 22 Florida State at No. 24 Virginia

When/where: 7; John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville, Va.

TV/radio: ESPN2; 1040-AM

Records: FSU 19-9, 10-4 ACC; Virginia 21-7, 8-6

Notable: After winning 10 of 11 ACC games, the Seminoles now have their first two-game league losing streak since 2010 going into senior day and are looking to secure a top-four seed for the ACC tournament. … FSU scored just 20 first-half points in a loss to Miami and points will be tough to come by against the Cavaliers, who rank second in the nation in scoring defense (52.2 points per game). … FSU won this season's earlier meeting 58-55, the Seminoles' second-lowest output in ACC games this year. … "Every possession is important," FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said. "… "They understand us, we understand them. They're going to be prepared and so are we."
