1. Sophomore Trent Mackey is a Florida kid who was passed over by all of the Florida schools. He ended up at Louisiana Monroe. He played two games in Florida as a freshman (at FIU and at FAU) and set his career best with 7 assists against Florida International. He also made 4-7 3s in those two games. Now, after his career best 22 points vs Florida State, Mackey has made 10-19 (53%) 3s against the schools who didn't recruit him.
2. ULM is one of the worst teams in the nation at both blocking shots and having their own shots blocked. They blocked 1 of 47 (2%) vs Florida State, which is below their average of 4.4% (331st nationally). They had 7 of 50 shots blocked (14%), which is also below their average of 16.3% (344th nationally).
3. With 2/3s of FSU's starting back court – Ian Miller (foot injury) and Michael Snaer (disciplinary) – sitting out the game, FSU turned to junior Okaro White. He led FSU with 19 points and 11 rebounds. He tied his career high in rebounds, was one short in points, and made 12-13 free throws which was the first time in his career that he's attempted more than 10. He's now drawn 5.8 fouls per 40 minutes, which is the best on the team.
4. One game after having the lowest turnover rate in Leonard Hamilton's tenure, the Seminoles turned it over on 28% of their possessions, and are now averaging 23.2% a game (270th). They've turned it over more than the national average (21%) in 8 of 10 games.
5. The final was 63-48, in a 68 possession game. The only team which has scored less per possession vs ULM is Southeastern Louisiana (0-7 vs Division I teams). FSU did manage to limit ULM to their 2nd worst offensive game of the year.
