THE SERIES North Carolina holds a 17-5 all-time record over Florida State in a series that dates back to the 1981-82 season. FSU's last win over the Tar Heels was a 73-64 victory on February 9, 1996 in Tallahassee. The contests have been very close the past couple of seasons as the Seminoles have lost to the Tar Heels by an average of just nine points in the last four meetings. The last game was a nail biter as UNC came away with a four-point win, 78-74, in Tallahassee.

THE BEST START SINCE FSU's 11-4 record is its best start in a decade. In the 1990-91 season, the Seminoles started 14-2 and finished 25-7. FSU's last winning season was in 1991-92 with a record of 17-11.

SUPERLATIVES * Florida State has shot better than 50 percent in five games. * Florida State has outrebounded its opponent in 12 of 15 games. * FSU has had double-digit assists in all 15 games, including a season-high 23 assists in the UNC-Asheville game. * FSU has won its 11 games by an average of 22.2 points per game. * FSU is 7-1 at home so far this season.

ALMOST THERE With 11 wins already, Florida State is just one win away from last year's total win total of 12 games. FSU's three ACC wins are also just one away from last year's total league wins. FSU's best ACC record was 8-8 in 1991-92 -- the Noles first year in the league.
