Minnesota at FSU Date 11/27/2012 7:15:00 PMLive StatsLinkTV ESPN2 Team Stats Embed This Chart On Your WebsitePence's Quick Thoughts FSU takes on #13 Pomeroy ranked Minnesota whose only loss this season came against Duke in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament on Thanksgiving day.  The Gophers have focused on defense (15th best in eFG% allowed) and offensive rebounding (3rd best in off reb %) thus far this season.  So, how does FSU matchup?  FSU is 9th best in eFG% on offense, but has struggled on the defensive glass early on this season.  The Noles have been almost as good as Minnesota on the offensive glass.  Needless to say a big factor in who wins this game is who can control rebounding. This one should be a great game, I like FSU to pull out a close one late. ********* Florida State is off to a quick start, but coach Leonard Hamilton still feels that Minnesota is "further along" than his team. The 21st-ranked Golden Gophers will try to prove that Tuesday night in Tallahassee in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The Seminoles (4-1) are undefeated - including the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic title - - since a season-opening loss to South Alabama, but Hamilton now gets to see his team tested against a ranked opponent for the first time in 2012-13. The Seminoles won six of their last seven against the Top 25 last season en route to their first ACC tournament title, but with star guard Michael Snaer - the team leader with 16.0 points per game - the only senior in this year's rotation, Hamilton said they're "still a team that's growing."
