TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The saying goes, "There's no place like home." That rings especially true for the Florida State basketball program, which has gone 12-1 inside the Tucker Center this season.
On Tuesday, the Noles not only play their final home game of the season but their biggest, as they host Virginia Tech with fourth-place in the conference on the line.
A regular-season finish in fourth means a double-bye in next week's ACC Tournament.
Beating the Hokies could be huge for FSU, but head coach Leonard Hamilton said their focus isn't on the postseason, but on themselves.
"[The] World doesn't come to an end if you don't get a double bye," Hamilton said. "The most important thing is that we've got to continue to keep getting better and try to prepare ourselves to have the right mindset going into every game. I think mentally, we're in a good place."
The Seminoles and Hokies tip off at 7 p.m. on ESPNU.
