Recap & Analysis: UNC 81 FSU 75

Gutsy, gritty, tough, resilient. Whatever word you want to use, that's what this game was for UNC and despite getting off to one of the worst starts of the season. UNC shot the ball poorly and also dealt with an epidemic of foul trouble resulting in an early 21-6 deficit. Despite the sizable hole the Heels turned that into an 81-75 win at Florida State.

FSU squanders 15-point lead to UNC, falls 81-75

But the good will the Seminoles built up against North Carolina slowly dissolved. FSU's defense fell apart in the second half and the Seminoles could not hold on to a 15-point first-half lead against the red-hot Tar Heels as UNC beat FSU 81-75. (Orlando Sentinel)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - Florida State

Combined with the win over Pitt, that's two straight hard-nosed wins over physical, athletic opponents. Those are games Carolina would have had no chance at winning a month ago. No one knows how this particular season will end up, but the Tar Heels have come a long way over the last 30 days. (GoHeels.com)

FSU vs North Carolina preview

The real difference is the defense. Roy's teams often get overlooked because of the tempo in which they play. Lazy journalists equate points allowed as bad defense, irregardless of how many possessions it took the opponent to score those points. This year UNC has the 12th best defense in the nation. They're solid across the board. (Tomahawk Nation)

Tallahassee Turn-Around

Following its sixth straight win Saturday afternoon over Pittsburgh North Carolina didn't have a whole lot of time at all to celebrate.

Tipoff is scheduled for approximately 7:00 pm. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Seminoles brace for challenge from UNC

The Florida State men's basketball team's comeback from a 16-point deficit to win at Wake Forest may have been even more significant than providing a desperate team with a much-needed win. It also gave the Seminoles just a little bit of positive momentum as they get set to host North Carolina (7 p.m., ESPN), which aside from its usual tradition also currently boasts one of the nation's hottest teams.

Lucas: Hicks Showing Progress

This isn't a case of cherry-picking Isaiah Hicks' best plays. During his first-half minutes, he found a way to contribute virtually every time down the court, even when some of those contributions didn't show up in the box score. Those quality plays eventually led to a highlight that everyone noticed, as he exploded to the rim on a one-handed dunk that gave Carolina a 29-27 lead. (GoHeels.com)

Planning for Success: McAdoo's decisions

To say James Michael McAdoo has improved this season doesn't take much of a leap. It's right there in his numbers: His offensive rating is 105.0; his true shooting is up from 47 percent to 50.3; his turnover rate is down to 11.1 percent. The only thing he isn't better at is free-throw shooting, but the sum of his improvements is clear. He's guarding better, too. It's a wholesale leap. (ESPN.com)
