For most of Saturday's top-25 matchup, No. 22 pulled the Seminoles No. 16 cardinals, but that was certainly not the case with most … in overtime. Seminoles came out on top of Louisville, 80-75, to win their fifth consecutive ACC game for the first time since the Seminoles' ACC Championship season 2011-12.
Florida State's junkyard defense was launched in the last five minutes. After Seminoles scored eight unanswered points, Louisville pushed a lively packed Tuck putting one in from outside the bow. The trees continued to count down to the cards so they could shorten their deficit to only three with only 45 seconds left. After Terance Mann went 1

Free throws from Cunningham and a made lineup from Trent Forrest forced the game into overtime, 65-65.
Kabengele led all scores by 22, but was closely followed by 20 from Mann (3-4 from three) and 15 from Forrest. Phil Cofer, PJ Savoy and Christ Koumadje combined for zero points. Kabengele also led the way with 7 rebounds, where both Forrest and Christ Koumadje added 6 boards a piece. Forrest also had 4 assists, 0 sales and 5 steals to complete a thorough filling of his state line.
The Seminoles went on a very slow start and shot 2/12 from the floor to Louisville 5/7. With 12 minutes remaining in the first half, Florida State seemed to come to terms with the bench to rub a 12-0 maturity of two to four minutes, but this "new" team didn't stay long and Florida State continued to play a little more ugly basketball well into the other half.
To close half Seminoles shot 9-31 from the field compared to Louisville's 12-25. The FSU went 33% on 2s, 23% on 3s and 57% on the line.
