He has been an outstanding representative of our program and Florida State University. Her new team, Florida State, starts what she expects to be a deep run against Western Illinois on Friday. "And we don't want to go home". Xavier Rathan-Mayes had 10 points, five rebounds and five assists. And now stand one win away (the Seminoles play No. 11 seed Xavier on Saturday at 6:10 p.m.) from advancing to the Sweet 16.

"Bacon jumped up and made a shot, and Isaac jumped up and made a couple shots when they were well guarded", Dooley said. The last attempt just ran out of time. Also, like our for the latest updates on the Seminoles.

Bacon had reason to be excited about this season.

Xavier Rathan-Mayes made one of two freebies with just 6.1 seconds remaining and Goodwin missed a trey at the buzzer.

The 'Noles would head back to the court on Sunday for their final time inside the Tucker Center this season. Terance Mann was ready to move from role player to starter.

Florida State provided some highlight moments of its own in the first half. Isaac is expected to be a first-round National Basketball Association draft pick, if he leaves school after this season. "We listened to him, took that in, and came out with a big second half".

Following the game, White and some players admitted that there were some nerves in the early goings. He simply tried to help however he could. "Jonathan is an unselfish guy by nature". The Florida State Seminoles are averaging 82.6 points on 48.5 percent shooting and allowing 71.5 points on 41.2 percent shooting. He cares about his teammates.

Robinson had 10 points and 2 rebounds at the half. Isaac got taller but never lost his handle. It would have been worse than that but the Bucs hit a flurry of shots in the final minutes after the game had already been decided.

"Well, it's obvious that he's been our go-to guy all year", FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said. He doesn't force anything. "I love playing basketball". So those things he brought to the table. Bacon has led the Seminoles in scoring in 22 of their 34 games, including six of the past seven.

Florida State was led by Dwayne Bacon, who scored 25 points, 16 in the first half as the Seminoles grabbed a 40-36 halftime lead. "When he's aggressive, this team can go far". It must be said that the Seminoles made more FT's (24) than the Eagles attempted (20). (They shot 68.2 percent from two-point range and took 39 free throws.) Also, the Seminoles will need to adjust more quickly against better opponents. They extended it to 31-28. Eventually, Florida Gulf Coast shifted back to man-to-man.

The Seminoles (26-8), making their first appearance since 2012 in the NCAAs, advanced on in the West Region.

This is no longer a real game, it is now a dunk contest.
