FSU at N.C. State
When/where: 9; PNC Arena, Raleigh, N.C.
Records: FSU 13-6, 4-3 ACC; N.C. State 13-7, 3-4
Notable: The Seminoles remain the ACC's top defensive team but are inconsistent on offense. They're coming off an ugly 78-56 loss at Duke. … The Wolfpack, currently a bubble team at best, badly needs this win; starting Saturday at North Carolina, it plays five of six on the road. … Coach Mark Gottfried stuck with a smaller lineup in Sunday's 80-78 OT win over Georgia Tech, putting more scoring options on the floor and producing N.C. State's most points in more than a month. … N.C. State sophomore F T.J. Warren leads the ACC with 22.1 ppg.
