College basketball preview: Florida State Seminoles at No. 23 North Carolina Tar Heels


Florida State at No. 23 N. Carolina

When/where: 2; Smith Center; Chapel Hill, N.C.

TV/radio: FSN; 1040-AM

Records: FSU 16-6, 6-2 ACC; UNC 16-5, 6-1

Notable: The Tar Heels opened the season 3-3 and quickly fell out of the Associated Press poll, but they crept back in last week. They've won four in a row, nine of 10, and are coming off a 106-74 shellacking of Boston College. … UNC freshman Harrison Barnes, a preseason All-American, has set career highs in points for two straight games with 25 against North Carolina State on Jan. 29 then 26 against the Eagles. … The Seminoles lost three of four road games in January and shot 35 percent or worse in all of them. They have, however, won three of their past five games against ranked ACC opponents.
