FSU-Syracuse preview


Florida State vs. No. 7 Syracuse

When/where: 2; Tucker Center, Tallahassee

TV/radio: Ch. 44; 1040-AM

Records: FSU 18-11, 9-8 ACC; Syracuse 26-4, 13-4

Notable: The Seminoles have won three in a row and four of five, but they remain a bubble team at best and badly need another quality win. … The Orange might have played itself out of a No. 1 seed with four losses in five games, including Tuesday's 67-62 stunner at home to Georgia Tech. Outside shooting has been a culprit: Syracuse has made 32 of 117 3-pointers (27.4 percent) in its past eight games, and Trevor Cooney, the team's top long-range threat, is 15-of-58 (25.8 percent).
