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.
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.
