— Tenth-ranked Florida State lives off its defense and is now getting the offense into gear — just in time for the NCAA tournament.

The Atlantic Coast Conference champions have been vulnerable when they've committed too many turnovers or shot poorly, but they're virtually unstoppable otherwise. North Carolina came to Tallahassee in mid-January and left with a 33-point drubbing after catching the Seminoles hitting on all cylinders. Deividas Dulkys lit up the Tar Heels for 32 on one of the two nights he led the team in scoring this year.

Florida State has scored 80 or more point in three of its last four games. Seven different Florida State players have been the top scorer in at least one game this season with Michael Snaer leading the way in 17 games. But the season didn't start that way: The Seminoles suffered through two early forgettable halves when they scored just 10 points in one game and 14 in another that resulted in two of their losses.

Defense, balance key Seminoles run in tournament

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — For nearly one full year, the score 72-71 has been painfully branded on the Florida State players' psyches.

The numbers are a harsh reminder of what can happen when the Seminoles come into a ballgame expecting to roll over a lesser-known, lower seeded opponent.

VCU 72, Florida State 71.

"I mean, personally, I've thought about it every day," Seminoles senior forward Bernard James said of the score to last year's Seminoles NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 loss to Virginia Commonwealth. "It's just a constant reminder not to let your guard down no matter who you're playing, no matter what the name is on the jersey."

FSU can't overlook Bonnies
