College basketball preview: FSU Seminoles vs. Boston College Eagles

Tonight's major state men's game

FSU vs. Boston College When/where: 7:30; Donald L. Tucker Center, Tallahassee

TV/radio: FSN; 820-AM

Records: Boston College 12-12, 3-7 ACC; FSU 17-7, 5-5

Notable: The Eagles should provide the Seminoles with a good opportunity to bounce back from an ugly loss to Clemson. Boston College has lost three in a row and four of five, including Jan. 30 at home to FSU, to fall near the bottom of the ACC standings. … BC is the conference's worst 3-point shooting team with 4.2 per ACC game, a break for the Seminoles, who have struggled with their perimeter defense. … Luke Loucks, a former Clearwater High standout and first-team all-county selection, has emerged as a key reserve for the Seminoles. The sophomore guard had a career-high 19 points in a 71-65 win over Miami on Feb. 6 and followed with 15 in Wednesday's loss to Clemson. … FSU is 11-2 at home this season.
