As ugly as the loss to Clemson was last Saturday, there was just no way Florida State was going to lose this game against Wake Forest Tuesday night. No offense to the Deacons but with the game being in Tallahassee and Leonard Hamilton has shown he can get his team to regroup after abysmal games. Had the Seminoles lost, you could kiss your NCAA tourney berth goodbye with losses to the 237th and 287th RPI ranked teams. But that just simply wasn’t going to happen.
Florida State scored 85 points (Wake had 61) against a major conference opponent for the first time in...well, I can’t recall the last time. That was enough points for two games with how the Seminoles play on offense sometimes. Come to think of it, Ohio State 44 points, Clemson 44 points. Nope, still not enough.
The odd makers had FSU -21 against Wake. Apparently they knew what they were doing because if you have followed FSU’s offense at all that would mean a score of something like 50-29. Well, the Deacons did score only 35 against Georgia Tech.
Devidas Dulkys (team leading 16 points)…where have you been for the last month and half??
Chris Singleton (another disappointing game offensively with 5 points)...where are you? For those scoring at home, that is a total of 25 points Singleton has scored in the last four games.
Bernard James (5 of 6 from the floor) …. For those scoring at home, that is 15 of 22 shooting for former Air Force sergeant.
Ian Miller is obviously out of the doghouse seeing the court for the second game in a row and scoring 11.
Luke Loucks with 5 assists in just 12 minutes of playing time. If he could have that kind of production over thirty minute, he would have 12 assists per game.
In case you didn’t notice, North Carolina (FSU’s next opponent) scored 106 points against BC Tuesday night and 84 in the previous game at NC State. Great, just what you want to see from a team FSU (53 ppg in ACC road games this season) is about to meet in Chapel Hill.
