It will be just a short post for tonight, but what a wild night it was. Florida State’s Ian Miller drops a last second 3 point shot against Virginia, and Clemson hangs on for a two point over Virginia Tech. What does it mean?
In rallying from a down double digits in the last five minutes FSU when from an 8-9 seed to a 5-6 one. That was another road victory against a top 50 team and moves the Noles to 20-9 (11-4). For Virginia that’s the bubble over there. At 21-8 (8-7) they are in now, but how would the selection committee feel if UVA loses at Maryland Sunday and in the first round of the ACC Tournament?
Senior Day in Maryland is no gimme and anything can happen in the ACC Tournament. Lose their last two, and look at this record 21-10 (8-9), on a 4 game losing streak, losers of 7 of your last 10 and only 2 RPI top 50 wins? Even with a weak bubble, I don’t like those odds. Virginia better win one more game somehwere.
What about Clemson? They just went to 16-13 (8-7) with their win. The remarkable part is that if Clemson has a shot at 4th place in the ACC. That comes with a 1st round BYE. Honestly I don’t think they’ll pull it off. They’d have to win at Florida State Saturday for one thing. That’s not likely, but the fact that Brad Brownell has rallied team his to this position is a credit to the coaching job he’s done this year.
Virginia Tech lost another close game. I know shocker…
Oh man is the ACC tournament going to be fun.

The heroics for the Florida State Seminoles came from someone other than Michael Snaer, tonight. This time it was Ian Miller that his a thrilling game-winning 3 to give the ‘Noles a 63-60 win over the Virginia Cavaliers.
Not exactly the most high percentage shot, but who cares when it goes in, right? Virgnia’s desperation 3/4 shot with .8 left was no good, and gave FSU their...
What would today be without another buzzer beater.Today's big one: Ian Miller of Florida State drilling a fadeaway three with .8 seconds on the clock giving the Seminoles a 63-60 comeback win over the University of Virginia.There isn't much more to say other than watch the video (courtesy-theACCsport):
Florida State was on the brink of a third straight ACC loss, highlighted by the ejecion of Bernard James in the second half. But the 'Noles pulled another rabbit out of their hat, this one courtesy of Ian Miller.
With Michael Snaer and Ian Miller now both proving to have icewater flowing through their veins, Florida State might have enough perimeter scoring to be a legitimate threat in the NCAA Tournament.
Florida State has already wrapped up a high seed for the ACC tournament, but the 22nd-ranked Seminoles would surely like to end the regular season with a win.
They can do that and match the most successful ACC regular season in their history Sunday when they host Clemson, which handed Florida State its most lopsided defeat of 2011-12 thus far.
Florida State (20-9, 11-4) has locked...
FSU picked up a big win and pushed Virginia closer to the bubble as the Seminoles won 63-60 on the road. In a lot of ways the game had the feel of an ACC tournament game. Both FSU and Virginia made runs, with FSU closing the game on a 16-2 run to ultimately win it. It was Ian Miller, not Michael Snaer, who hit the game winner this time.
At Clemson, Virginia...
