Virginia leads the all-time series 33-13 and has won each of the last three meetings, including upsetting both the then-ranked No. 17 Seminoles 85-68 in Charlottesville earlier this season and a then-ranked No. 24 FSU squad 72-60 in the 2012-13 regular-season finale. Virginia's last loss in the series was a 78-74 game on Feb. 7, 2011 in Charlottesville.
Florida State started the season with a 14-1 record, but has gone 4-9 since. The Seminoles have lost three of their last four games, including falling 86-78 on Thursday night (Feb. 27) at home against Georgia Tech.
Virginia has lost three consecutive games, including a pair of tough losses to No. 11 North Carolina and No. 14 NC State, and has dropped five of its last six contests.
