Bad pass by Bernard.
But only 2 TO's so far this half

FSU is getting guys wide open along baseline against the zone.

2 scorers for FSU - Bacon and May.
Have 21 of their 26 points

Up 7 with 3 to play
Let's not have a repeat of Thursday's game and give away the lead before the half

Great game plan by CM but again, he does not use a t.o. w/15 seconds to go, and X can only get a 28 foot desperation trey. I have no idea why he is so reluctant to call t.o.s, especially since he constructs very good out of bounds plays.

Use em or lose em.
Should have called a TO after that made basket.
Every possession matters!!!

Most games I would agree with your comment, but if you recall he already used the use or lose it timeout to stop FSU's run.
