Florida State basketball has been trying to get back to its hot shooting ways after recent losses to Georgia Tech and Syracuse. The Seminoles got a nice 18-point win over Miami during the week, but got an even better and more historic win over Clemson on Sunday with a 109-61 thrashing.
The beat down was so bad that the Tigers haven’t even experienced anything like that in the last 60-plus years of playing basketball. It was the worst loss under coach Brad Brownell and there hasn’t been a bigger loss since before 1955.
The Seminoles were led by Dwayne Bacon’s 29 points and Terance Mann’s 11 points. All 13 players who got in the game scored and played at least seven minutes in the game. The ‘Noles shot an astounding 66.1 percent from the floor and 56.7 percent from beyond the three-point line. They also had 26 assists on 41 made shots and only had 14 turnovers to Clemson’s 22.
The Seminoles next play N.C. State on Wednesday.
