Notes:

What to watch for:
Florida State survived a scare during Friday's game against St. Bonaventure. The 'Noles didn't take the lead until 35 minutes into the game and saw Michael Snaer score zero points for the first time all year. The Seminoles will need Snaer to shake off Friday's performance and once again step up offensively. Bernard James was a huge factor in Friday's game, scoring a career-high 19 points and the 'Noles will look for him to again be a big contributor. Cincinnati is a guard-centric team (the Bearcats only start one true forward), so the 'Noles will have to be sharp on defense, especially around the perimeter.
