College men's basketball preview capsule: Florida State Seminoles at North Carolina State Wolfpack, 1 p.m. Saturday

COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Today

No. 20 Florida State at N.C. State

When/where: 1; RBC Center, Raleigh, N.C.

TV/radio: Ch. 44; 1040-AM

Records: FSU 18-7, 9-2 ACC; N.C. State 18-8, 7-4

Notable: Both teams face a quick turnaround after wild Thursday games. G Lorenzo Brown scored 19 but N.C. State coughed up a 20-point lead in losing at Duke 78-73, and FSU slipped by Virginia Tech 48-47 on G Michael Snaer's 3-pointer to keep the Seminoles in a tie for first in the ACC. … Already with victories against Wake Forest, Duke and North Carolina, if FSU beats N.C. State it would mark the first time in program history the Seminoles beat all four of the ACC's North Carolina teams in the same season.
