Florida State men's basketball: Tonight vs. Cincinnati


FSU vs. Cincinnati

When/where: 10:30, Thomas & Mack Center, Las Vegas, Nev.

TV/radio: 1040-AM

Notable: The Seminoles (5-0) renew a rivalry against an old Metro Conference foe, the Bearcats (4-0), in the third round of the Las Vegas Invitational. FSU will face host school UNLV or Cal on Saturday. … FSU continues to ride senior G Toney Douglas (19.4 points per game, 2.8 steals per game), but perhaps freshman sharpshooter Deividas Dulkys, who struggled to find his touch, should be more comfortable in this setting; he played at Findlay Prep in nearby Henderson, Nev. … Cincinnati, which will be playing away from home for the first time, has won with defense and rebounding; it is holding opponents to 33.5 percent shooting from the field (25 percent from 3-point range) and an average of 49.8 points. It averages nearly 18 more rebounds (46-28.3) than its opponents. … FSU last hit Vegas in December 1990, losing to then-No. 1 UNLV. … FSU leads the series 21-15 but hasn't played UC since Feb. 7, 1991.

  3. What we've learned from the Bucs' and Bills' playoff droughts
