TV: ESPN2

Florida State Seminoles (4-0)

Season: Florida State is 4-0 after three obvious wins against 140 rated-plus teams in Kenpoms ratings and 7th rated VCU. Florida State jumped out to a quick lead and forced VCU into some pretty terrible shooting splits (21% from 3pt, 29% overall from the floor).

Kenpon Vitals:


ORtg eFG% TO% OR% FTA.FGA
Off. 104.9 58.5 24.3 37.8 59.8
Def. 95.5 43.0 27.3 34.1 31.0

Dangermen:

Okaro White (6'8 Sr) is shooting an unsustainable 70.0 eFG% thanks to 13-17 from 2pt. He has been FSU's most used player so far this season and has chipped in on the offensive glass (10.0 OR%) and as a shot blocker (6.9% Blk%).

Devon Bookert (6'3 So) and Ian Miller (6'3 Sr) have both put together very productive seasons thus far. Bookert has an ORtg of 123,2 while Miller's is 148.3. Both been shooting the ball well from outside to start the season and have ARates in the 20's as well as eFG% in the 60s.

The Game: Florida State has one thing that can test Michigan: size. The Wolverines have a long backcourt thanks to a number of options that can play anywhere from the one to the four, but with Mitch McGary still working back into shape, Michigan will be calling on Jon Horford and Jordan Morgan for help wiht FSU's size.
