Trips to Tallahassee have generally meant doom for Florida State’s opposition, as the Seminoles have been downright dominant at home. FSU has won its past 13 games when hosting a team with a winning record and its past 17 as home favorites. The Seminoles will aim to continue these trends when they host the upset-minded NC State Wolfpack on Wednesday.

After a pair of tough losses that saw FSU average just 64 points per game, the Seminoles have bounced back to win back-to-back contests, including a 109-61 drubbing of Clemson. The biggest positive to take from the Clemson win was FSU’s secondary scoring, as 11 players scored at least six points in that game.
NC State is in a precarious position and is desperately in need of a win with the squad picking up just two wins in its past nine games. The Wolfpack have been struggling defensively in their past three outings, all of which have been losses, allowing opponents to shoot 52 percent from the floor and a staggering 53.7 percent from deep. Dennis Smith Jr. continues to give NC State hope, as the freshman is averaging 19.2 points, 7.0 assists and 4.6 rebounds while shooting 45.9 percent from the field.
