The Florida State Seminoles hung 105 points in their season opener against Penn, led by guard Jordan Dingle’s 23, and will look to duplicate that success on Sunday against the Florida Gators.
The Seminoles generated 15 steals against the Ivy Leaguers and face a Florida bunch that returns just one guard who averaged more than 1.5 points per game last season.
The Gators struggled at the free throw line in their season opener against Elon, going 16-for-29, and have ranked outside the top 100 in points allowed on a per-possession basis each of the past two seasons.
The Seminoles also had 24 offensive rebounds in their opener with a lineup in which 10 different players played 10 or more minutes. Forward Malik Osborne was a dual threat with 18 points and 13 rebounds.
Florida is 13-27 against the spread in home games since the start of the 2018-19 season and is 0-8 against the spread versus the Seminoles in the past eight seasons.
The play: Florida State, +1.5.
