The Florida State Seminoles are sitting right on the bubble with a chance to squeak into the big dance... Of course, the Clemson Tigers are standing in their way... One man that has to have a huge game for FSU, just so happens to be ACC Player of the Year Runner-up Al Thornton... And one man who just so happens to be in Tampa for the ACC Tournament is Beau Bishop. The 2 guys hooked up for an interview and it went like this.
WCTV's Beau Bishop:
"We are back with our 2007 coverage of the ACC Tourney... I'm joined by the most decorated player in FSU basketball history... Unanimous First Team All-ACC Al Thornton... If you get wins in this tournament, how rewarding would that be?"
FSU Senior Forward Al Thornton:
"It'll be great, with all the success I've had, overall we've been saying all year long, that it's very important for us to get to the tournament."
"You weren't the most decorated guy in your class but you worked harder and now the rewards are coming in for you... How gratifying is it?"
"It's great, It shows you can put in work and reach your potential."
"This is being called an elimination game against Clemson, is that how you're approaching it?"
"We want to win it all, we don't want to leave it up to chance, we did that last year and got... we didn't get into the tourney... We'll try to win as many games as we can."
"FSU Player of the Year-- or at least you should have been in my opinion... Al Thornton are you ready for Clemson?"
"I can't wait!"
"Neither can we... FSU-Clemson, at noon."
