Florida State Seminoles vs. Coastal Carolina Chanticleers men's basketball preview


Florida State vs. Coastal Carolina

When/where: 4 p.m.; Donald L. Tucker Center, Tallahassee

Notable: The Seminoles, who moved up the start time three hours so fans can watch the football team's ACC game at Maryland later, play for the fourth time in eight days. But fatigue might be the least of their issues. Though the Seminoles (3-0) have found ways to win, they've struggled against teams that aren't exactly of the ilk they'll see soon. Their combined margin of victory has been eight points. The good news is that the Chanticleers (0-2), FSU's opponent in the opening game of the Global Sports Classic, provides another game for the youthful Seminoles to acclimate to the college game. … Coastal Carolina's coach is a familiar face: Cliff Ellis is an FSU alumnus and former coach at Auburn and Clemson. He's 6-6 all time against his alma mater. … FSU leads the series 1-0.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It didn't take CF Kevin Kiermaier long to make his presence felt during his return Friday to the Rays lineup. Kiermaier pretended to have Mariners DH Nelson Cruz's first-inning line drive lined up even as the ball went past him to his right and to the wall.
