TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The No. 15 Florida State women’s basketball team is set to follow up its tough win over nationally-ranked Miami with an equally tough road trip.

The Seminoles (16-4, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) play at Boston College (15-5, 2-3) Thursday night. Fans that wish to watch all the action can do so by clicking here.

All the action gets started at 7 p.m. when FSU takes its unbeaten conference road-record into Silvio O. Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill, Mass.

The ‘Noles then travel to Raleigh, NC to prepare for a Sunday afternoon matchup with the Wolfpack from NC State.

 

QUICK HITTERS

• The Seminoles are 5-2 overall on the road this season and 2-0 in ACC games in their opponents’ gym.

• After the win over the Hurricanes, FSU is now a staggering 28-5 in regular-season ACC games over the past two-plus seasons.

• The Florida State-Boston College series dates back to the 2005-06 season with FSU boasting a 6-1 all-time advantage over the Eagles. BC’s lone win over the ‘Noles happened in last year’s ACC Tournament.

• The conference tournament game that saw Boston College earn its first win over FSU was a 67-60 ballgame. The Eagles pulled off the big upset thanks to double-figure scoring from four different players. Prior to that game, the Seminoles earned an 85-64 win. Current Seminole forward Chasity Clayton scored what is her career high of 21 points in that game.

• FSU heads to New England feeling good about its defense. The Seminoles limited the high-octane Hurricanes to a season-low point total and held the ACC’s top two scorers to a combined 13-of-42 from the field. It marked the 12th time this year that Florida State has held its opponent below 60 points.

• FSU will travel from Boston straight to Raleigh to face NC State Sunday afternoon.
