College basketball preview: No. 23 Florida State Seminoles men at Boston College

Tonight: No. 23 FSU at Boston College

When/where: 9; Conte Forum, Chestnut Hill, Mass.

TV/radio: ESPNU; 1040-AM

Records: FSU 21-6, 8-4 ACC; Boston College 19-9, 7-6

Notable: The Seminoles, back in the AP Top 25, look to stay in the top third of the league. The top four teams receive a bye into the ACC Tournament quarterfinals. They're tied for second in the standings, the highest they've been this late in the season since 1992-93. … Although the Seminoles are 0-2 at BC, they're 10-3 away from home this season (including three neutral site Ws). … Senior G Toney Douglas needs 17 points to reach 2,000 in his career; he has scored 1,456 at FSU. Douglas is averaging 20.5 ppg overall and 23.2 ppg in league play, tops in the ACC. … The Eagles, led by senior G Tyrese Rice (17.8 ppg), have wins at North Carolina and against Duke that are sure to get the attention of the Seminoles.
