Boston College Vs. Florida State: Tomahawk Nation Predicts Florida State Will Win By Four

Tomahawk Nation, SB Nation's Florida State blog, has picked the host Seminoles to defeat Boston College, 68-64, when the two teams meet at the Tucker Center tonight.

Here's a sampling of what Michael Rodgner had to say about tonight's match-up on BC Interruption's Five Good Minutes.

BCI: Let's get to the matchup between BC and FSU. Florida State has the 7th best defense in terms of adjusted defensive efficiency, while BC has the 4th best offense in terms of adjusted offensive efficiency. So something's got to give in this one. How do you see this game going down?

TN: Only once this season has FSU given up more than 1 point per possession (Butler), so I would expect BC's trend of lighting up ACC opponents to end. If all five of FSU's guys are locked-in their help defense can be a thing of beauty, and I assume the Noles will come out focused since the game is in Tallahassee. Fortunately for BC the FSU half-court offense is just terrible. For BC to win they'll need to make sure that their turnovers and missed shots don't lead to transition offense. The more you keep FSU in a half-court set, the better. Conversely, the Seminoles need to exploit their depth of size on the interior to grind out some half court possessions.

BCI: Last one. Prediction time. Who ya got in this one? What's the final score?

TN: I expect a tight game for the entire 40 minutes, with FSU winning 68-64.
