The St. Bonaventure Bonnies insist they feel no pressure with nothing to lose and everything to gain in the NCAA tournament. Memories of a painful loss a year ago still haunt the 10th-ranked Florida State Seminoles who have no intention of overlooking anyone. The two will square off Friday. Senior forward Bernard James said Thursday he's thought of that 71-70 overtime loss to VCU in the regional semifinals every day since then to avoid letting his guard down. That approach helped Florida State (24-9) win its first ever Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title and garner a three seed in the tournament. The 14th-seeded Bonnies have won seven of their last eight, including the Atlantic 10 tournament title en route to their first NCAA berth since 2000.
