Bet Tonight's Florida State vs. Valparaiso Matchup

This game means a lot to a Crusaders team that has had difficulty scheduling high-major teams on the road, let alone at home. This is the first time Valparaiso has hosted a team from the ACC and the last time the Crusaders played a Power 5 opponent at home was all the way back in December of 2010 when it hosted Purdue.

FSU's three leading scorers are all guards and are all underclassmen. Dwayne Bacon and Malik Beasley are freshman, while Xavier Rathan-Mayes is a sophomore. The Seminoles have size and length, but they’ll face a more experienced Crusaders team tonight looking for a signature win for the program.
