People keep calling me a pessimist for all the bubble talk on the blog. I am not trying to damper hopes. I think we are a tournament team but that doesn't mean we've done enough yet. Florida State is not a must win, but it would certainly help our resume. Fortunately for us we play them at home. I think the carryover from Duke will help energize the crowd and the team.
As for this year's Florida State team, the key is Toney Douglas. He's a scorer who is generating ACC Player of the Year talk. FSU is also strong inside. They are pretty balanced and a very good defensive team. It seems like I am always focused on rebounds, in this case it's the offensive end where we can exploit things. If we create and convert second chances, I think we can win. On the defensive end, we cannot let them have easy shots. The plan should be to close down inside and force them to chuck it from outside.
I think BC recovers from the Miami game and gets this win.
