What to Know

After two games on the road, the Florida State Seminoles are heading back home. FSU and the Syracuse Orange will face off in an ACC battle at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday at Donald L. Tucker Center. The teams split their matchups last year, with the Seminoles winning the first 76-71 and 'Cuse taking the second 96-57.

It was a close one, but this past Saturday FSU sidestepped the Louisville Cardinals for an 81-78 win. FSU's success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but guard Jalen Warley led the charge as he had 14 points and five assists.

Meanwhile, 'Cuse beat the Boston College Eagles 77-68 this past Saturday. The Orange's center Jesse Edwards did his thing and had 27 points in addition to seven boards and four blocks.

The Seminoles are expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Troy Trojans Nov. 14 easily too and instead slipped up with a 79-72. In other words, don't count 'Cuse out just yet.
