College basketball preview: No. 23 Florida State men vs. No. 12 Clemson

Men: No. 23 FSU vs. No. 12 Clemson

When/where: 2; Donald L. Tucker Center, Tallahassee

TV/radio: Ch. 44; 1040-AM

Records: FSU 21-7, 8-5 ACC; Clemson 22-5, 8-5

Notable: The Seminoles are tied for third in the league with Clemson and Wake Forest, so today's stakes are clear — the top four teams avoid the first day of the ACC Tournament. The Seminoles would like to experience that bye for the first time since the league expanded to 12, and a sweep of the Tigers would sure help. … FSU will hang the No. 33 jersey of Ron King, the star guard who helped FSU reach the 1972 NCAA title game. (For more on King, visit blogs.tampabay.com/ seminoles.) … FSU leads the series 28-24.
