1. After Monday's disappointing offensive showing against ULM, senior(who sat out due to a disciplinary issue) and junior had a lengthy and private heart-to-heart. Following that conversation both players have stated that it's time for them to be more aggressive. The young guys are playing like spectators far too often, and the vets need to take over. They apparently weren't just talking, as they were both aggressive from the tip. Snaer took a career high 19 shots and scored a career high 30 points. It was FSU's 1st 30-point performance since Deividas Dulkys went off on UNC. Snaer made 5-10 3s, and has now made 48% since FSU's 1st game of the season.
2. Aaron Thomas began the season looking very much like a freshman. He forced the action. He took bad shots. He turned the ball over. But in the past three games he's averaged 16.3 points and is getting to the FT line 6.7 times a game and making 90%.
3. FSU turned the ball over 14 times in a 74 possession game (18.9% turnover rate). It was only the 3rd game this season that their turnover rate was lower than the NCAA average of 20.9%.
4. Freshman Willie Clayton is from nearby Thomasville, GA and was heavily recruited by FSU, but in the end there either wasn't the space for him or FSU wanted a package deal with him and Robert Carter (who ended up at Georgia Tech). Now, Clayton is the 3rd best offensive rebounder in the nation and had five vs FSU in 27 minutes.
5. Charlotte totaled 13 offensive boards, but they missed 34 shots. After serious rebounding issues early in the season, it's the 3rd straight game FSU has held an opponent below a 40% OR%. Still, FSU is 270th in defensive rebounding.
