Preparation pays off for Plumlee

You may recall that I picked Florida State’s Michael Snaer to be this season’s ACC Player of the Year. When I get it wrong, I get it wrong. But the bulk of the ACC media picked NC State’s C.J. Leslie to win that award and that’s not going to happen, either.  If post-season voting were to take place now, neither would make first-team All-ACC. Plumlee is averaging 18.2 points...

How not to rebound

On Saturday Florida State lost a close game to North Carolina. In doing so, the Noles gave up 19 offensive rebounds. How bad is that? It was the 12th most offensive rebounds allowed (OR%) by any Division I team this year. And it was the worst OR% for Florida State since that statistic became available (1999), so it quite possibly may have been the worst rebounding game in Seminole...
