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 seminoles.) … FSU leads the series 28-24.

  1. Fennelly: About time Dave Andreychuk makes Hockey Hall of Fame

    Lightning Strikes

    It's Andy's time.

    And it's about time.

    Former Lightning captain Dave Andreychuk has been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. He had been eligible since 2009, a ridiculously long wait for someone who scored 640 goals, including a record 274 on the power play.

  4. Scotty Bowman says 'it's about time' Andreychuk got HOF call


    For Hall of Fame coach Scotty Bowman, Dave Andreychuk finally being part of a Hall of Fame class is especially gratifying.

    Scotty Bowman drafted Dave Andreychuk in the first round (16th overall) in 1982 and coached him the first five seasons of his career.
