NCAA Tournament Scores, Notre Dame Vs. Florida State: Seminoles Take 34-23 Lead Into The Half

In a day of wacky upsets, why not add Florida State to the mix. The 10th seeded Seminoles have held Notre Dame in check over the first 20 minutes and have a 34-23 halftime lead to show for it. Cold shooting by Notre Dame combined with lights out shooting from beyond the arc by Florida State led to the lead as the Seminoles took control early and kept the Fighting Irish at bay throughout the half.

Michael Snaer paced the Seminoles with a game-high eight points in the first half. Bernard James and Deividas Dulkys were close behind, adding six points apiece. Derwin Kitchen had a five points and a team-high three rebounds in the half.

Tim Abromaitis and Ben Hansbrough each had six points in the half for the Fighting Irish, but Hansbrough struggled from the field, connecting on one of five shots. Abromaitis wasn’t much better, hitting just three of nine shots. Eric Atkins added five points off the bench, as well. Abromaitis led the way on the boards, finishing the half with a game-high six rebounds.
