Men's college basketball preview: No. 24 Florida State Seminoles vs. Virginia Tech

Today

No. 24 FSU vs. Virginia Tech

When/where: 2; Donald L. Tucker Center, Tallahassee

TV/radio: Ch. 44; 1040-AM

Records: Virginia Tech 17-12, 7-8 ACC; FSU 22-8, 9-6

Notable: The Seminoles close the regular season in need of a win to secure the fourth seed in the ACC tournament, which would mean an opening-round bye. The only bad scenario for FSU is if it loses and Clemson wins, which would mean FSU and BC tie for fifth; FSU loses that tiebreaker and would be the No. 6 seed. … A 10th league win would be the most for the Seminoles since they won 12 in the 1992-93 season and finished second in the league. … Coach Seth Greenberg's Hokies aren't fighting so much for seeding as for their NCAA Tournament lives; they're on the bubble after losing five of six, including 67-65 at home to FSU on Feb. 21. … It's senior day for FSU, which will honor Toney Douglas, Uche Echefu and Brian Hoff. … FSU leads the series 23-17.
