FSU basketball got wins over the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and Virginia Cavaliers to continue their hot start to the 2016-17 season.
Wow. What a week it’s been for the Florida State men’s basketball program.
After opening conference play with a win against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, FSU faced a tough test on Saturday. And that was in the form of their first true road game. The Seminoles had to travel to John Paul Jones Arena and face the 11th-ranked Virginia Cavaliers. Oh, and those Cavaliers came into the game as the top team on KenPom.
In the second half alone, Dwayne Bacon scored 26 points. Twenty. Six. That’s on the road, in a hostile environment, against the second best defensive team in the country. Goes without saying really, but in an already impressive career, this was by far Bacon’s craziest performance.
Two more wins for the ‘Noles, who are now 14-1 on the year, and 2-0 in the ACC. Let’s take a look back at both games this week, hand out some awards, and present highlights.
