Florida State leads Georgia Tech in the all-time series 23-20, and owns a 10-11 record at home vs. the Yellow Jackets. FSU has won nine of the past 12 meetings vs. its Atlanta-based rival, including an 82-62 win on the road last season (Jan. 30, 2015).
The Seminoles and Yellow Jackets are nearly neck-and-neck in terms of offensive production, with FSU sitting third in the ACC at 75.5 points per game while Georgia Tech is fourth with 74.8 points per contest.
Florida State senior guard Emiah Bingley had a career performance in last year’s 82-62 win at Georgia Tech. She recorded a career-high five 3-point field goals, going 5-for-5 from beyond the arc for 15 points while adding two steals.
Junior guard Brittany Brown is coming off an eight-steal performance in FSU’s 75-42 win over Boston College. The Fort Walton Beach, Fla., native has 57 total steals this year. It was the most steals by a Seminole since April Traylor also had eight at Xavier on Feb. 1, 2001.
One of Coach Sue’s favorite stats is whenever FSU can have five players in double figures, a product of sharing the ball. Last game vs. BC, the Noles had five players with double-digit points for the first time this season.
In FSU’s nine home games this season, it is shooting exactly 50 percent from the floor (270-of-540). From beyond the arc, the Noles are shooting nearly 40 percent (39.5 percent). The Seminoles own a 9-0 home record in 15-16.
Next up is a two-game road swing in ACC play. FSU plays at Clemson on Thursday, Jan. 14, at 7 p.m. on ESPN3. FSU then faces Pitt on the road on Sunday, Jan. 17, at 2 p.m. on ESPN3.
