Tonight: FSU men at Virginia
By BRIAN LANDMAN
Published February 9, 2005
WHEN/WHERE: 7:30, University Hall, Charlottesville, Va.
TV/RADIO: 1470-AM. RECORDS: FSU 11-11, 3-6 ACC. Virginia 11-9, 2-7.
COACHES: FSU - Leonard Hamilton (44-40, third season; 245-250 overall). Virginia - Pete Gillen (115-87, seventh season; 389-215 overall).
NOTABLE: The Seminoles have lost two straight and three of four. If they can stay at .500, they have a shot at an NIT berth, which wouldn't be bad given their youth. But that goal almost requires they beat teams with similar records - Virginia twice, Clemson and UMass - and not rely on road upsets of North Carolina or Wake Forest. ... The Cavaliers are fresh off Saturday's 64-62 win at North Carolina State, which snapped a three-game losing streak. In that game, Gillen went to a spread offense, working the shot clock and shortening the game. "I don't remember doing that in the past," he said. "That's not the style I like." He added it probably was a "one-time thing" but he must give his kids "a chance to win." And if that means slowing the pace and eschewing his preferred up-and-down game, well, so be it. Said Hamilton: "I've known Pete for a long time. Pete has a lot of things up his sleeve. He's one of the more innovative coaches around. When you prepare to play against Pete Gillen, you have to prepare for a lot of things." ... The Cavaliers lead the series 15-11 and have won five straight in Charlottesville.
