3/14/2019*VIRGINIA TECH              
VIRGINIA TECH: Last season: 21-12, lost in first round of NCAA Tournament
Nickname: Hokies
Coach: Buzz Williams, fifth season
Conference: Atlantic Coast.
Who's gone: G Justin Bibbs (13.3 ppg. Led the team with 66 3s), G Devin Wilson, their best defensive player
Who's back: G Justin Robinson (14 ppg, 185 assists) is a speedy 6-foot-2 guard who can take over a game (he had 32 points in a victory against NC State last year). F Kerry Blackshear Jr. (12.5 ppg, 5.9 rpg), who can be hard to stop when not in foul trouble. G Nickeil Alexander-Walker (10.7 ppg, 58 3s), who showed maturity beyond his years as a freshman. G Ahmed Hill (10.6 ppg, 64 3s), who shot 41 percent from deep. G/F Chris Clarke (8.2 ppg, team-best 6.3 rpg) whose speed can be an asset, but also a liability (75 turnovers). F P.J. Horne, who shot 59 percent from the field and showed flashes of being a spark off the bench.
Who's new: G Ty Outlaw, who shot 48.7 percent from 3-point range in 2016-17 before missing last season with a torn ACL.
The Skinny: The Hokies have thrived in an us-against-the-world approach in Williams' first four seasons, winning two ACC games their first season and 10 each of the past three years. With prospects for a third consecutive NCAA Tournament bid for the first time in school history, how they handle being on the expectations side of the ledger will go a long way toward determining how successful they can be.
Expectations: At No. 15, the Hokies are ranked as high as they ever been to start a season, and they are picked fifth in the ACC after much more dire prognostications in previous seasons. With eight experienced players returning, Williams also has more experience than he's had during his tenure in Blacksburg. A quick return to form of Ty Outlaw after missing last season with a torn ACL would help their prospects immensely.
FLORIDA ST: Last season: 23-12, reached third Elite Eight in school history.
Nickname: Seminoles.
Coach: Leonard Hamilton.
Conference: Atlantic Coast.
Who's gone: Guard Braian Angola (graduated, will play for Orlando Magic's G League team in Lakeland), guard C.J. Walker (transfer to Ohio State), center Ike Obiagu (transfer to Seton Hall), forward Brandon Allen (graduated).
Who's back: The Seminoles return seven of their top nine scorers and their top five rebounders. But the team's leading scorer, senior F Phil Cofer, is out for at least six weeks after suffering a foot injury in practice. Cofer led FSU in scoring (12.8 points) and was second in rebounding (5.1) in 2017-18. Senior G Terance Mann is a versatile scorer who is coming off his best season (12.6 points and team-leading 5.4 rebounds). Trent Forrest steps into the starting point guard role, and the junior drives the lane through traffic with confidence. The rising star is sophomore F Mfiondu Kabengele, who averaged 7.2 points and 4.6 rebounds last season. Senior G P.J. Savoy is a sparkplug off the bench who knocked down 50 three-pointers last season.
Who's new: Florida State landed graduate transfer David Nichols, who averaged 14.6 points last season, from Albany. Freshman guard Devin Vassell averaged 16.7 points per game as a senior at Suwanee (Ga.) Peachtree Ridge.
The Skinny: Florida State has the length, depth and athleticism to compete with any of the ACC teams. Cofer's injury is a significant setback but he could return ahead of the start of ACC play in January.
Expectations: The Seminoles face a challenging schedule against seven teams ranked in the AP's preseason top 25, not to mention rivalry games against Florida and Miami, but should be able to win 20 games for a fourth straight season. A third straight trip to the NCAA Tournament is also likely.
No. 16 Hokies get another shot at No. 12 Seminoles

The No. 12 Florida State Seminoles and No. 16 Virginia Tech Hokies will meet for the second time in 10 days in the quarterfinals of the ACC tournament on Thursday.

Tipoff is set for approximately 2:30 p.m. ET in Charlotte, N.C.

The Hokies (24-7) crushed Miami 71-56 in the second round of the tournament Wednesday to advance. The Seminoles (25-6) earned the double-bye with a fourth-place finish in the regular season.

The Hokies have won four of their past five games, their only loss coming in heartbreaking fashion to FSU in overtime on March 5 in Tallahassee. Virginia Tech let a 14-point lead at halftime get away from them before succumbing in overtime, 73-64.

Further, that win secured the double-bye for FSU while Va. Tech had to settle for fifth place.

"I think it's pretty remarkable that in Year 4 we would play for the fourth seed in the best league in the country," Virginia Tech coach Buzz Williams said after that game. "And considering all that's transpired this season, to play the way that we have played in the last nine games, it's scarred my heart in a good way."

The Seminoles enter Thursday rested and riding a four-game winning streak. FSU has won 12 of its past 13 games, its only loss in that span coming Feb. 23 at North Carolina. The Seminoles lost by 18.

However, through the luck of the draw, FSU had to play the top 3 teams in the ACC just one time each in the regular season, going 0-3 against Virginia, UNC and Duke.

For their part, the Hokies went 1-3 against those teams, defeating Duke 77-72 on Feb. 26. The Hokies played Virginia twice.

In the first meeting of these teams, Mfiondu Kabengele led FSU with 17 points but it was M.J. Walker who spurred the comeback, scoring nine of his 11 points after halftime.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker led the Hokies with a game-high 19 points in the loss. Va. Tech's second-leading scorer during the season, Kerry Blackshear Jr., was held to just nine points on 2-of-6 shooting. He was saddled with foul trouble throughout and eventually fouled out.

The Hokies held FSU to 19 points in the first half.

"Virginia Tech did an unbelievable job in the first half of bottling us up and taking away the things that we were accustomed to doing," Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton said. "We could have very easily have gotten discouraged. We didn't panic. I thought the guys responded to each other and responded to the challenge that we gave them as coaches."

Against the Hurricanes on Wednesday, Blackshear scored 19 points, pulled down 10 boards and dished four assists for the Hokies. Ty Outlaw scored 14 and Alexander-Walker added 12 for Va. Tech. The Hokies hit 11 3-pointers against Miami.

Sophomore sixth man Kabengele leads FSU with 13.1 points per game with Terance Mann second with 11.5.

FSU's calling card is its experience, with five seniors who either start or get significant minutes.

The winner of Thursday's game will meet the winner of Virginia-N.C. State in Friday's semifinals.
