From Sweet to Sour: FSU falls to Xavier

From Sweet to Sour: FSU falls to Xavier

After falling behind 11-4, the Tigers closed the first quarter with a 10-1 run powered by Porter's five points and capped by Michaelis' three-pointer. The last time Xavier played in Florida? The Musketeers were disciplined in their 1-3-1 zone, daring the Seminoles to try to dribble through it or shoot over it.

Thomas, who also had 11 rebounds, was one of four Seminoles in double figures. Some of those baskets were facilitated by guard J.P. Macura (10 points, five assists), who routinely drove into the forest that is Florida State's front line so he could suck in the defense and pass to an open shooter.

On this date, the Florida State men's basketball team was on cruise control with an 18-2 record and its highest ranking in the AP poll in 24 years. Xavier won 76-60 at home against the Seminoles on February 5, 1958.... Florida State scored only two fast break points in the game. Even with Bacon and Isaac, coach Leonard Hamilton extolled his team's depth throughout the year as he used 12 players per game.

Former Eagles QB Chase Daniel visiting Jets
Daniel, 30, spent four years backing up Drew Brees before moving on to the Kansas City Chiefs and then Philadelphia Eagles. Former Jets quarterback Geno Smith signed with the New York Giants earlier in free agency.

The Seminoles didn't get the production they expected from their bigs during the first half. The previous two times - 2010 and '15 - they would end up making it to the Elite Eight. "They get what they want every time down the court".

Xavier (23-13) advances to the West region semifinals on Thursday in San Jose, Calif., and will play the victor of a late game between No. 2 seed Arizona and No. 10 St. Mary's in Salt Lake City. The 6-7 sophomore guard worked on his shooting during the offseason a year ago and has developed a better range of shots instead of merely attacking the rim. "We determined that if we were going to win the game we were going to have to hit from the perimeter, and they did a good job of denying".

"To look back at the season, to see what we've been able to accomplish, I'm very proud of these guys and how they've hung in against some extremely good competition". Xavier has now won five of six since snapping that losing streak.

Blow for DD: Duminy withdraws from IPL due to personal reasons
Duminy joined the Delhi IPL franchisee in 2014 following stints with Mumbai Indians, Deccan Chargers and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Duminy thanked the Daredevils for their support and hopes to be a part of the franchise again in the future.

Florida State (27-6) will face second-seeded Oregon State (31-4) in a regional semifinal game in Stockton, Calif., on Saturday.

Eighth-seeded Wisconsin may have pulled off the day's biggest upset with its defeat of defending national champion Villanova, but Xavier is the first double-digit seed locked into the tournament's second weekend. They couldn't. Florida State missed the other seven three-pointers it tried in the first half and then missed four in a row early in the second half.

Bacon and Rathan-Mayes carried the team in the half with 21 of the Seminoles 34 first half points.

Senate confirms Trump's pick for national intelligence chief
Richard Burr, R-N.C., the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, lauded Coats' nomination after Wednesday's vote. Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee seemed confident in Trump's choice.

FSU had nine dunks to extend its national lead to 180 (Kentucky is second with 164 entering Friday's NCAA game against Northern Kentucky) and wore down FCGU with its depth, as 10 players scored.
