Off the cuff: I haven't given up - I'm just in a slump. That's why it took me a long time to muster the effort it takes to write a review of the Florida State game.

I'd like someone at the sports information office to research whether this is the most three pointers ever scored on a Tar Heel team in a season. They gave up 11 to the Seminoles Wednesday night.

By the way, does anyone care about the Air Jordan franchise at Nike? To think that you would forego your school colors to pay tribute to something like that is sorta ridiculous. But I guess money talks.

How many times in Carolina history have the Tar Heels gotten down by 17 points in the first half or by 23 in a game for that matter? Just a weird season. Time to put on some DVDs from last season.

Florida State 77, Tar Heels 67
Eleven threes drop on 14-14 Carolina

Florida State made 11 three pointers to beat North Carolina for the first time in Chapel Hill since 2000 and drop the Heels to 14-14 on the season by a 77-67 tally. (2/24)

The Seminoles sank nine threes in the first half to run out to a double-digit lead and held a 48-33 lead at the half. FSU increased the margin to 23 and it was all the Tar Heels could do to get the final margin down to 10.

UNC played without injured players Ed Davis, Travis Wear and David Wear. Only Travis Wear is likely to get back this season. The scoring chores have fallen on Will Graves who managed to score 21 points to lead all scorers.

Florida State had four players in double figures, led by Chris Singleton's 19, which included a three for six performance from behind the arc. On the season, he had hit only 20 percent of his threes.

The Seminoles took nothing for granted against the Tar Heels, who have lost 10 of their last 12 games. "Even though their record isn't that good, they're still North Carolina," said Florida State's Derwin Kitchen, who had 13 points. "We knew coming in that we had to be focused because they could beat any team in the country on any given night."

Unfortunately the Tar Heels play during the day at Wake Forest Saturday. FSU improves to 20-7 and 8-5 in the ACC.
