FSU Falls 84-65 At Louisville

Florida State struggled in nearly every facet of the game in a blow out loss to Louisville.

Nothing went right for the Seminoles on Wednesday night as Louisville blew out Florida State 84-65. Florida State was without the services of point guard Xavier Rathan-Mayes, who was sitting out due to a coaches decision.

Florida State shot just 42.4 percent from the field, and managed to shoot just above that at the free throw line. The Seminoles shot just 9/21, or 42.9 percent, on free throws. They shot 33.3 percent from behind the three point line.

The Seminoles woes didn't stop there. Louisville dominated the glass 44-36 including 17 offensive rebounds. Those rebounds led to 14 second chance points. 

The bright spot for the Seminoles was Malik Beasley. Beasley finished with 23 points to lead all scorers. He made 10 of the 16 field goals he shot, but made just 1 out of the 5 free throws he took. 

Dwayne Bacon and Devin Bookert were the other Seminoles in double figures. Bacon finished with a double double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Bookert added 18 points and 7 rebounds on 7 of 14 shooting. He made 4 of the 6 three pointers he took.

Florida State falls to 12-6 on the season and 2-4 in the ACC. The Seminoles will return home to play No. 23 Pittsburgh at 4 PM on Saturday, January 23.
