Florida State certainly made it interesting. But after being down by as many as 19 points to the Princeton Tigers perhaps it was just delaying the inevitable.
Clawing its way back, FSU extended the game into triple overtime, had several opportunities to win the game, but could not convert them, eventually losing to the Tigers 75-73.
The first ever triple OT game in FSU history was the first home loss of the season for the Seminoles, who are now 0-3 against Princeton lifetime.
After what was a horrid first half shooting performance that has become an all to common sight to FSU fans this season, the 'Noles erased a 17 point halftime deficit. It took almost the entire second half to do it but Xavier Gibson put back a wild lay up shot by Ian Miller to tie the game at 47 with just 53 seconds left.
The first opportunity to pull out the win was the Seminole defense prevented a game winning shot by the Tigers. Gibson grabbed the rebound that would have given the Seminoles one last possession. But Gibson dribbled the ball off his leg and Princeton got another chance that also came up short.
At the end of the second overtime FSU had three point blank chances that would just not go down, another all too common sight for FSU fans. Bernard James was fouled on the play and went to the line for a one and one with 2.6 seconds left in the extra period.
