Tallahassee, FL - The Florida State women’s basketball team (No. 14/19) is back in Tallahassee following a two-game, five-day road swing and will welcome conference rival North Carolina (No. 12/15) to the Donald L. Tucker Center Wednesday night.
Tip-off is slated for 7 p.m. and the game will air live on Sun Sports.
FSU has jumped out to a 6-1 league record and will be looking to not only extend that mark but also accomplish a program first. The Seminoles currently boast a two-game winning streak over the Tar Heels (19-3, 5-1 ACC) but have never won three straight in the series.
Florida State is 18-4 overall this year.
Fans that attend the ballgame can get a free youth ticket with the purchase of an adult ticket. As an added perk, those attending also have the chance to enter their name at the marketing table inside the Tucker Center doors for a chance to win a free Nintendo Wii.
At game’s end, a winner will be randomly selected and FSU coach Sue Semrau will make the announcement.
• With its win over NC State last Sunday, the Florida State women’s basketball program is now 30-5 in Atlantic Coast Conference play since the 2009-10 season.
• FSU and North Carolina 36 times since the 1981-82 season with the Tar Heels holding an all-time edge in the series 27-9. Much of the 1990s and early 2000s saw UNC generate long winning streaks over the Seminoles but FSU currently boasts a two-game winning streak over UNC.
• The Seminoles’ back-to-back wins in the series mark the program’s first two-game winning streak against UNC since the 1982-83 season.
• Both teams met once last year with FSU earning an 83-73 victory on the road. In that game, five FSU players scored in double figures with former ’Nole Jacinta Monroe’s 16 being the team high. Current FSU players Courtney Ward, Christian Hunnicutt and Cierra Bravard combined for 34 points.
• The ’Noles have made a combined 18 3-pointers in their last two games; wins over Boston College and NC State.
• After North Carolina, FSU is back on the road to face Virginia on Monday night.
