Early on Friday, when the Florida State Seminoles barely survived a scare against the St. Bonaventure Bonnies, it appeared that they were going to be one of the major stories going into the weekend. Then, Duke and Missouri happened. The pressure and the spotlight are now off of Florida State, whose struggles are very much under the radar.
They're coming up against another very physical team in Cincinnati in the Round of 32. Their defense completely stifled Texas while Yancy Gates had a fantastic game on both ends of the floor. Cincinnati don't have the size of Florida State, but they're a very tough team. This is likely to be an extremely physical and defensive matchup.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, March 18, 9:40 p.m. ET
Venue: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville, Tennessee
