TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- No, North Carolina, you’re not in the Smith Center anymore.
Florida State -- the team that only managed 10 first half points against Princeton on its home floor a couple of weeks back -- leads the third-ranked but listless-looking Tar Heels 36-28 at halftime at Tucker Center.
UNC, which hasn’t played a road game since Dec. 3, has committed 12 turnovers, while making only 2-of-10 3-point shots. Senior forward Tyler Zeller was the only Tar Heel who looked fully engaged early; he and forward John Henson each have 8 points.
FSU, meanwhile, has made 7 of 13 3-point attempts behind senior guard Deividas Dulkys (6-for-7, 4-for-5 from 3-point range), who has already matched his season high with 16 points.
The Tar Heels have won their past five games at FSU, but the past two have come on game-winning shots.
