Florida State Seminoles

Florida State went 4-10 over their first 14 games this year, beating Mercer, Louisville, USC Upstate and Notre Dame. The Seminoles are 2-3 in their last five with losses to Duke, Wake Forest and Virginia. 

In the Notre Dame game on Tuesday, Florida State was up 39-29 going into the second half. The Seminoles posted a 45-42 run from there for the 84-71 win. Darin Green scored 20 points and Matthew Cleveland doubled on 14 points and 16 rebounds. 

Pittsburgh Panthers

Over on the Pittsburgh side, they were 10-4 after 14 games with losses to West Virginia, Michigan, VCU and Vanderbilt. The Panthers are 3-2 since then with wins over Virginia, Georgia Tech and Louisville.

Matched up against Louisville on Wednesday, the Panthers were up 37-28 at the break. Pittsburgh hit a 38-26 run in the second half and powered out the win 75-54. Greg Elliott led the way on 23 points with four rebounds. 


I’m going to stick with Pittsburgh. The Panthers made short work of Louisville in their last game, and they’ve been playing pretty well through a tough section of the schedule. Pittsburgh has scored 67 or more points in 16 straight games, so they’ve got their offense working pretty well right now. As for Florida State, they’re just 2-3 over the last five games but they’ve been scoring pretty well themselves. I like the Seminoles to hang around for most of the game here before Pittsburgh powers out the eventual cover.
