Canes Clash with Seminoles on Sunday
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Miami looks to make it two wins in a row on Sunday when the Canes head north to take on No. 14 Florida State in Tallahassee. The game is slated to tipoff at 2 p.m. and will air on ACC Network. Fans can also listen to the game on WVUM 90.5.
This will be the 62nd meeting between the two schools with the first ever meeting dating back to the 1974-75 season. Since the Canes joined the ACC prior to the 2004-05 season, Miami and Florida State have met at least twice each season (15 seasons). Miami has split the series 1-1 in five of those 15 seasons and has only won both games (home and away) once in 2011-12.
The Seminoles hold the 46-15 series lead over the Canes, and a 27-9 mark since 2004-05. Miami is 4-20 when playing Florida State in Tallahassee but its last trip to Tucker resulted in a victory for the Canes.
Miami held on to defeat Clemson, 68-64, at home on Thursday night. Junior Kelsey Marshall tied her career-high with 22 points in the contest to lead all scorers. Junior Mykea Gray and freshman Brianna Jackson joined Marshall in double-figures, pouring in 16 points and 10 points, respectively. Gray has now posted 15-plus points in four straight games.
Florida State enters Sunday’s contest as the 14th-ranked team in the nation, holding a 16-3 overall record (5-3 in ACC play). The Seminoles’ 13 straight wins to open the season set a new record for best start in program history. The Seminoles’ only three losses of the season have come in conference play. Two of the defeats have come in the last four games as Florida State lost by double-digits to both Georgia Tech and NC State.
As a team, Miami tallied 18 assists on 24 total shots against Clemson, recording double-digit assists for the 14th time this season. The Canes are now 8-0 when dishing at least 15 assists in a game. Juniors Endia Banks paces the Canes in assists, averaging 3.21 per game (15th in the ACC). Banks has recorded five-plus assists in four games this season and Miami has won all four of those games.
