Florida State Seminoles (15-5, 3-3 ACC) at Boston College Eagles (12-9, 3-4 ACC)

Time: 3:00 EST
Date: Saturday, Jan. 30, 2010
Place: Conte Forum, Chestnut Hill, Ma.
TV: Raycom

The Line: Boston College -1

Last Time Out: Boston College defeated Clemson 75-69 to move to 12-9 (3-4 ACC) on the season.


Series: BC leads the all-time series 4-1.
Last Meeting: Boston College 72, Florida State 67 (Feb. 24, 2009)

Trends: Florida State has never won at Conte Forum (0-3). The Seminoles are a mere 2-4 on the road this year (those two wins are against Mercer and Georgia Tech in OT).

Florida State's 2008-2009 Record: 25-10 (10-6 ACC), first round NCAA Tournament loss to Wisconsin

Probable Starters:

  • G - Deividas Dulkys (So.) - 6'5", 196 lbs., Silute, Lithuania - 10.0 PPG, 2.3 RPG
  • G - Derwin Kitchen (Jr.) - 6'4", 198 lbs., Jacksonville, Fl. - 8.0 PPG, 4.1 RPG
  • F - Ryan Reid (Sr.) - 6'8", 237 lbs., Lauderdale Lakes, Fl. - 7.1 PPG, 4.1 RPG
  • F - Chris Singleton (So.) - 6'9", 227 lbs., Dunwoody, Ga. - 11.2 PPG, 7.6 RPG
  • C - Solomon Alabi (So.) - 7'1", 251 lbs., Kaduna, Nigeria - 12.7 PPG, 7.1 RPG

This is a big game for both programs with significant ACC standings implications. The Eagles can climb back into the ACC race with a win, pushing their conference record to 4-4. Likewise, Florida State can ill-afford to drop to below .500 in ACC play with upcoming games against Maryland, Clemson and UNC, among others.
