The Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks look to surprise the Florida State Seminoles Sunday.
Tennessee-Martin is not supposed to contend in the Ohio Valley but a few wins will be a marked improvement for a team that has generally struggled. The Skyhawks had no luck in losses to Colorado and Arkansas State but finally got in to the win column with a 79-64 decision over Rochester College. UTM did not shoot well at 37.5% but neither did the Warriors at 35% but the Skyhawks managed 16 more looks thanks to 17 forced turnovers. Myles Taylor paced the scoring with 20 points with Marshun Lynch tossing in 14 with Terence Smith and Bobby Jones contributing 13 and 12 points with Smith grabbing seven boards.

This is not supposed to be Florida State's year when it comes to competing for the top of the ACC. Too much lost talent is what is being said although Central Florida probably has a difference of opinion after getting whacked 80-68 by the Seminoles. It was a sloppy game with both teams combining for 37 giveaways but FSU got away with it because they sank half their shots wnd the Knights were limited to under 40%. Throw in a 19-11 edge at the charity stripe favoring the Noles and the score is not a surprise. Ian Miller led the FSU attack with 18 points followed by a 17 point, five assist performance from Devon Bookert with Okaro White adding 13 points and Robert Gilchrist chipping in ten.
I just hate big spreads so this is really about which team has the potential to cover the big chalk. If Florida State keeps the pedal on the gas I think they cover...
