College basketball preview: Florida State Seminoles vs. Virginia

No. 25 FSU vs. Virginia

When/where: 7; Donald L. Tucker Center, Tallahassee

TV/radio: FSN; 1040-AM

Records: Virginia 7-12, 1-7 ACC; FSU 18-5, 5-3

Notable: The Seminoles, fresh off a comeback win at then-No. 10 Clemson, begin the second half of their league schedule with a golden chance to move closer to ACC leaders North Carolina and Duke and the NCAA Tournament bid that has eluded them since 1998. They beat Virginia 73-62 on Jan. 24 in Charlottesville. … Said FSU coach Leonard Hamilton: "We still are, in some ways, considered the underdogs and still trying to earn a certain level of respect. … We don't have any room right now to take any bows." … The Cavaliers have lost six straight. … Virginia leads the series 17-16, but FSU has won two straight and the past six at home.
