Notes:

What to Watch
The 'Noles look to beat Miami in the ACC Tournament in the teams' third meeting this season. FSU's 12-4 ACC record tied its best in school history and the Seminoles hope to build off that accomplishment, as well as the recent naming of Leonard Hamilton as ACC Coach of the Year. The Seminoles also hope to continue last season's string of postseason success. Both Michael Snaer and Ian Miller have been hot on the offensive side of the ball for the 'Noles and the guards will need to keep up that kind of play.

Series History
FSU leads the series 39-29, but lost at Miami in late February. The teams have never met in the ACC Tournament until now.
