Noles Beat St Leo's 65-56

Michael Ojo - this 19 year old freshman is 7 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 290 pounds. He has a wingspan of 7 feet 8 inches. He is from Nigeria.

Michael has very little experience playing basketball.

St Leo's is a small Div 2 school of 1500 kids in Tampa. Last week they beat Miami - and they pulled within 3 of FSU with 4 minutes to go last night. The Noles prevailed 65 - 56.

Lulu and I went for our walk around the lake at Southwood - then had a supper out. We went right to the arena where tickets were festival style because it was a benefit game for Audrey Boyd a former player who was paralyzed. The crowd was small but the action was great - we sat right behind the scorer's table.

FSU is stocked with talent led by All-American Michael Snaer.

Okaro White

One to watch is Okaro White. This senior has improved so much since last year - one might say he made a deal with the devil at the crossroads. At fan night he won both the slam dunk contest and the three point event. Last night he scored 16.

The pundits select FSU to finish 5th in the ACC. Last year they won the league championship - although they lost a ton of talent. The team has 6 scholarship freshman.

FSU just bought the Civic Center from the city. It is a nice place to see a game. We expect to see some improvement to the arena. The arena is 2 miles from our door. We walked to the first game from home - and back.
