College basketball preview: FSU vs. Jacksonville State


Florida State vs. Jacksonville State

When/where: 6; Donald L. Tucker Center, Tallahassee

Records: Jacksonville State 3-6, FSU 5-3

Notable: The Seminoles, who play at home for the first time in 21 days, have lost three of four but haven't played badly; the slump includes a two-point OT loss to Michigan and a one-point heartbreaker to Florida. … Coach James Green has slowly turned the Gamecocks around, leading them to 8-8 finishes in the Ohio Valley Conference the past two seasons. They're rebuilding, however, around a group of transfers and inexperienced upperclassmen. … Darion Rackley leads the Gamecocks with 13.7 ppg, Nick Cook with 6.6 rpg. … FSU has won 13 straight against teams from the OVC.
