Jimmy Valvano once said you know you made the big time when you are playing the 9 o'clock game in the Garden. Last night was pretty exciting playing Maryland in the second game on ESPN. It was not a sellout in the Tallahassee Civic Center - but probably the biggest crowd of the year watched Michael Snaer drive to score in the last 20 seconds - only to have the points taken off the scoreboard for a charge call. Less than a minute later it was all over after the Terps made some foul shots and the Noles lost by 4.
Saturday Wake Forest comes to town and the Seminoles must recover or risk not being selected to play in the NCAA playoffs.
Nancy's friends - Paul and Michelle gave us free tickets for the game - 9 PM was too late a game for their kids. I guess the kids never heard of Jimmy V.
