1. In ACC play Florida State has forced turnovers on 22% of opponent possessions. Maryland's turnover rate vs FSU was 25%, largely due to Dez Wells who had tied his career high with six. He also had six last year against UMass, but that was when he played for Xavier. Since transferring to Maryland his game high was five turnovers, though he has done that five times. Maryland has now turned the ball over at least 20% of the time in seven straight games, a streak which began the last time these two teams met.
2. After establishing his career high with four blocks two games ago, Kiel Turpin had three vs Maryland in just 14 minutes. He blocks 8.6% of opponent shots when he's on the floor. The last time the leading shot blocker for a Leonard Hamilton coached team was below 9% was in 2007-08, when freshman Julian Vaughan blocked 5.7% of the shots in his one FSU season before transferring to Georgetown.
3. Unless you just woke up from an 18-hour nap, you know that Michael Snaer has now won four ACC games at the buzzer in the past 12 months. Those four, plus Ian Miller's heroics to beat Virginia, mean that five of FSU's past 13 ACC regular season wins have come on 3s at the buzzer.
4. FSU turned the ball over just six times, which accounted for 9.4% of their possessions. This was 0.2% behind their previous best effort since tempo free data became available (1999), which was set earlier this year vs Maine.
5. After scoring a season low 0.71 points per possession last time out vs Miami, the Noles bounced back with 1.14 vs Maryland. Six games ago when these team met in Maryland, FSU only scored 0.93. Last night was just the 2nd time this year FSU has scored more than a point per possession vs an ACC opponent.
