Hot UNC too much for cold FSU

Box Score: North Carolina 79, Florida State 58 - F

Reggie Bullock and UNC were hot from the field all afternoon, while FSU struggled to find the bottom of the rim.

It was widely known that the North Carolina Tar Heels had begun to put things together after a slow start and Florida State witnessed the improvement first hand, falling 79-58 to the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill on Sunday afternoon.

While it was a poor effort on the boards that killed FSU in the two teams’ first match up of the season, it was a horrid shooting performance that allowed UNC to pull away from the Seminoles.

FSU shot just 38.3 percent from the field on the day, while the Tar Heels were a blistering 56.4 percent from the field, including a ridiculous 9-of-15 from downtown.

The Seminoles did manage to keep things close when it came to rebounds, pulling down a total of 32 rebounds, just two less than the Tar Heels' 34. However, the cold shooting for FSU proved too much for the Seminoles to overcome.

Michael Snaer, who was efficient in his last outing, failed to provide FSU with much of the spark on the offensive end, going just 5-of-17 from the field en route to a team high 17 points.

Devon Bookert had perhaps the best outing for FSU, sinking four of his six shots for 10 points while also hauling in nine rebounds and four assists.

With the loss, the Seminoles have now lost six of their last nine games and fall to just 15-14 on the year and 7-9 in the conference. Just two games remain on FSU’s regular season schedule, as Virginia and NC State head to Tallahassee this week to finish things off.
