Back to Ticket Reality at FSU in Tallahassee

We are sitting in the sixth row at the foul line across from the Noles bench. We left home at 2:30 - parked the car - there were plenty of tickets for sale. A nice lady offered me two tickets on the rail for $5 each. Ticket face value here is $18 - not the $65 that faced us at Duke and UNC last week.

FSU led by as many as 15 - and settled for a 7 point victory. UVA had it down to 3 near the end.

It was a costly victory as Chris Singleton - our future NBA draft pick - left the game in the first half with a twisted ankle. They x-rayed it and he sat out the second half.

Singleton is the second big man that is down for the Noles. Terrance Shannon - a 6-9 bruiser - had his knee scoped last week and is out for the season.

Harry Later Note - Chris Singleton has a broken foot that requires immediate surgery. We have probably seen his last days in a Seminole uniform. He was 5 of 6 from the floor in the first half when it happened. He also had a couple of giant blocked shots. Look for him to be a first round draft choice in the NBA this year.
