Men's college basketball preview capsule: Florida State Seminoles vs. Miami Hurricanes

Florida State vs. Miami

When/where: 2; Tucker Center, Tallahassee

TV/radio: Ch. 44; 1040-AM

Records: FSU 19-8, 9-4 ACC; Miami 17-11, 5-8

Notable: Without star F Chris Singleton (fractured foot), FSU is 1-1 after Wednesday's 78-62 loss to Maryland in which the Seminoles had 17 turnovers. G Derwin Kitchen had four turnovers but scored 16 and had seven rebounds and six assists. FSU, 6-0 in ACC home games and 11-2 at home overall this season, is hoping a victory over Miami coupled with a win over North Carolina can get them off the bubble for an NCAA bid. … FSU won the Jan. 19 meeting 55-53, the Seminoles' fourth-straight win in the series. … With a win today, FSU would reach 20 for the fifth time in the past six seasons under coach Leonard Hamilton. … FSU's 1972 team that reached the national title game vs. UCLA will be honored at halftime.
