Florida State Seminoles
As the season progresses the Florida State Seminoles are peaking with how they play together. In their last game, they won against Notre Dame by just a point and they showed resiliency to close out games. Wyatt Wilkes came off the bench with 19 points and five three-pointers to lead the team in scoring. Raiquan Gray had 13 points while Trent Forrest had 13 points of their own to go with seven assists, five rebounds and four steals. Devin Vassell controlled the floor with 11 points, seven rebounds and two assists. They will expect Vassell to control the floor in this game but other players need to step up just like what Wilkes did.

The Virginia Cavaliers are coming off from a 2-point overtime victory over Wake Forest.

Mamadi Daikite did 16 points and seven rebounds while Kihei Clark had 13 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. It was a tough night for Braxton Key who shot only 12% from the field in 16 shots. He was able to finish with 7 points and eight rebounds. This game against the Seminoles, they need Key to help them if they want to secure their home-court advantage.
