FSU knows mistakes would be costly vs. Xavier

And it has the coaching acumen that compares favorably with many.

The Gators seem to have prepared with Davis' analysis in mind.

"I think it prepares us very well because the ACC is one of the toughest leagues in America, and we finished second in one of the toughest leagues in America, so I think we'll be ready", Smith said of the grind of playing in the ACC. "Kind of fuel, motivation".

How much can a mid-major player's life change with one memorable NCAA Tournament performance?

Despite holding onto the lead for all but about four minutes, FSU never had full control or got to a point where it felt comfortable with it lead.

When the under-sized Eagles finally chose to stop playing the man-to-man defense that was getting torched, the FSU offense (to nobody's surprise) struggled mightily.

"Their speed and quickness [is the primary personnel concern]", Forbes said. They're a great program. The Xavier Musketeers are averaging 74.7 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 71.2 points on 45.1 percent shooting.

Florida's defense took a hit with the loss of forward John Egbunu (7.8 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 1.5 bpg).

After a three immediately out of the break gave ETSU its first - and only - lead of the game, Florida answered with an 11-2 run.

In fact, Coach White really appreciated the effort of Robinson on both ends of the floor tonight and he had this to say about it after the game. "In the past we've always been defensive conscious because we haven't been tremendously gifted offensively". "There are a lot of really, really good mid-major teams".

It didn't come without a little bit of drama, though. Villanova is trying to be the first back-to-back titlist since Florida in 2007.

Last year, 16th-seeded FGCU mowed down Fairleigh Dickinson by 31 points in a First Four play-in Game in Dayton, Ohio, before losing just two nights later by 16 points to eventual national runner-up North Carolina in Raleigh.

Leonard Hamilton has Florida State in the NCAA tournament for the fifth time.

The Buccaneers players are well aware of the shelf life for the potential glory. "They took advantage of what turnovers we did have, and their length disrupted us into taking some poor shots".

"That's part of being in this stage". Sophomore guard KeVaughn Allen (13.9 ppg) leads the way, and senior Canyon Barry (Rick Barry's son, and yes-he shoots granny-style free throws like his dad), is a must-find shooter on the wing (12.1 ppg).

Bacon served as the primary scorer, filling up the box score with 25 points on 11-of-17 shooting from the field.

"Yeah, that got me going real early", Robinson said.
