#FSUWBB Hosts Georgia Tech on Military Appreciation Day

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) — No. 19/15 Florida State Women’s Basketball hosts ACC rival Georgia Tech on Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. in a Military Appreciation game that will be televised on Fox Sports Sun and other regional sports networks.

Fans can show their Military ID at the door and purchase a $3 ticket for the game between the Seminoles (11-4, 1-1) and the Yellow Jackets (10-6, 0-3). On the call for the TV game will be Tom Werme and LaChina Robinson, while Jonathan Schillace and Melissa Bruner will handle play-calling duties for WQTL 106.1 FM and Seminoles.com.

FSU looks to exact revenge on the streak busters in Georgia Tech on Sunday afternoon. The Seminoles own a 26-game home win streak but last fell in Tallahassee to the Yellow Jackets on Feb. 27, 2014, by an 86-78 score.

Since falling to GT in what was FSU’s last loss at home, the Noles have defeated 22 different opponents in the Donald L. Tucker Center, including repeat victories over Jacksonville, UNF and UAB. Over its 26-game home win streak, FSU’s average scoring margin has been +28.2 points, outscoring opponents on average 79.9-51.7.

Going inside the streak further, FSU also owns a 10-game home win streak against ACC opponents. In that streak, FSU is averaging 76.2 points, allowing just 55.8 points per game and owns a +20.4 scoring margin.

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.
