FSU basketball suffers their second loss of the season, falling 96-83 to the North Carolina Tar Heels.
The FSU basketball team traveled to Chapel Hill to face the 15-3 North Carolina Tar Heels on Saturday. In what was a cocktail of horrible free throw shooting, weak officiating (for both sides), and turnovers, the Seminoles ultimately dropped their second game of the season. They fell by the final score of 96-83, and are now 16-2 (4-1) on the year.
The Tar Heels were led by Isaiah Hicks, Joel Berry, and Josh Jackson, who combined for an obscene 70 points. All three of those guys were five-star recruits at one point, but weren’t one-and-done talents. Meaning that now they’ve been in school for a few years, and have grown into excellent college players.
The Seminoles, meanwhile, were led by Dwayne Bacon and Jonathan Isaac. Bacon had 18 points, though it took him 16 shot attempts to do so. Isaac was more efficient, scoring his 17 on 6-of-11 shooting.
Even despite the lopsided defeat, there were many positives to take away from this game. We’ll get into that as we look at the five main takeaways from today’s loss to Carolina.
