Florida St. Game Summary
Florida State lost their last game against Louisville on Wednesday, March 7th, 82-74. Louisville's Quentin Snider led his team to a win with a team-high 19 points. He went 7 for 13 from the field, shooting 53.8%. In 35 minutes, Quentin collected 19 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 threes with 0 turnovers. Although Florida State was defeated, PJ Savoy fought to keep his team in the game with 14 points, shooting 50% from the field (making 5 of 10 attempts). In 21 minutes, he added 14 points, 2 rebounds and 4 threes with 1 turnover.
Missouri wants to get Michael Porter Jr. back into the mix after he missed literally the entire season. Even without him the Tigers have what it tkes to win this one, but I think Florida State sneaks it out.
