At (10-12) and having dropped its last three games Georgia Tech, on paper, should be no challenge for the Seminoles Thursday night in the Thrillerdome, but that's not what Florida State is preparing for.
FSU freshman forward Okaro White adds,
"No matter how bad a team is, whether they're last in the league, the road is a different kind of place. It's a different kind of toughness to play in."
FSU senior guard Derwin Kitchen adds,
"You can't take no team lightly. I mean we lost to Auburn, one of the worst teams you can lose to. You can't take no team lightly especially in the ACC."
The Noles have won a conference best five road games this season but only one in ACC play.
"For us to be successful in this league you have to win on the road and we've been struggling. We've lost three games on the road."
While Tech has only three ACC wins, two of them came against teams that Florida State lost to.
FSU men's head basketball coach Leonard Hamilton adds,
"The fact that they were very successful against North Carolina and Virginia Tech, two teams that we struggled with, they have earned our respect. We know that they have a system that they're going to try and counter our size with their speed and quickness and guards."
A win for Florida State would be its sixth straight over the Yellow Jackets, tying the Seminoles longest winning streak in the series since the 1962-63 season.
