Florida State at Minnesota: ‘Noles fall to Gophers, 71-61


As part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Tuesday, the Florida State Seminoles basketball squad went on the road up north to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

When it was all said and done on the court in Minneapolis, FSU couldn’t get it done as they fell to Minnesota, 71-61.

For Florida State, Ian Miller led the way in the loss with 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting off the bench. Two other players for the ‘Noles finished in double figures, with Okaro White going for 16 and Boris Bojanovsky dropping in 11.

But, it was the Golden Gophers who came out on top in probably one of the more sloppily played games of the season thus far. In all, there were 52 total fouls in the contest.

Florida State shot a lot better from the field than Minnesota, going 46% to the Gopher’s 34. But, it was the vastly superior shooting from the perimeter that put the opponent over the top in this one. Minnesota shot 43% from beyond the arc, going 7-of-16, while the ‘Noles shot a pedestrian 20%.

With the loss, FSU now drops to 5-3 on the season, and will now return home after a five game road trip this Sunday to take on Jacksonville State.
