If Miami has the ball
Do not think that there is one person who can close a defense, and it frustrates the entire offensive strategy of hurricanes. Miami (22-6, 10-3 in ACC) has four players who average more than 10 points per game. Mompremier and Hof can play a game in the post office. Gray and Cornelius can do the same thing from the periphery. For this reason, the hurricanes in the top half of the conference are in terms of points per game (74.7), percentage of field goals (.453) and 3% (field points) (.365).

The Seminoles have also allowed their opponents to shoot 41.1 percent out of the field this season. If Miami holds the ball and can not turn around, as was the case with the Hurricanes when these two teams met in January – a game that the FSU won with 62 to 58 points with 23 points from 23 turnovers – then Miami being able to score like this The recent surprise wins against Notre Dame and Louisville earlier this month.
If Florida State has the ball
Expect Gillespie, Ekhomu and Woolfolk to dominate most of the shots and try to pinpoint their ability to hit 3s. Each of these Seminoles players has more than 300 shots this season, no other player has more than 200, and more than a third of his shots come from the bow. The problem is that the FSU (21-5, 9-4 in ACC) hits 41.2 percent of their field shots and a team that scores 28.1 percent of the 3's. And Gillespie, Ekhomu and Woolfolk together reached 31.2 percent of their 3s.

When Florida State defeated Miami just over a month ago, it did not shimmer on the scoreboard, taking advantage of opportunities outside of sales and the free throw line. The Seminoles had 12 out of 13 attempts on the line. They turned the ball nine times less. They held the hurricanes in only seven points of 14 sales at the Seminoles. The state of Florida has the potential to score in tufts, but do not be surprised if the FSU sweeps its rival in a second low-scoring match.
