Al and his team are trying to do something that hasn't been done in 8 seasons. Make the NCAA tournament. As a bubble team, FSU must win their first round game against Clemson in the ACC tourney.
Point Guard, Toney Douglas, "Our whole team and the coaching staff are real focused, mentally and physically. Hopefully we'll be ready to play and get the victory."
"We realize that we haven't played particularly well against Clemson. We have a clear understanding of why and it's up to us to correct the mistakes we made in the other two games." adds Coach Leonard Hamilton.
Florida State and Clemson have met twice on the hard court this season with the Noles losing both. So perhaps the third time will be the charm.
"We can't let them beat us three times this season. Hopefully we got close to a week to prepare and I feel like we'll be alright." says All ACC First Teamer, Al Thornton.
And if they beat Clemson, they might be alright on Selection Sunday.
