Three to know: No. 9 Florida State at No. 11 North Carolina

Bacon's upped his production in league competition too, pouring in 29 and 23 vs. Virginia and Wake Forest, respectively.

Justin Jackson and Isaiah Hicks each added 22 points for the Tar Heels (16-3, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who played from in front almost all day but didn't put the Seminoles away until a 14-2 run in the final 5 1/2 minutes finally gave them a comfortable lead.

His only presence on the stat sheet up to that point came in the form of a pair of turnovers that led directly to five North Carolina points.

They had a chance to get into the break with a close margin, but the Tar Heels went on a 7-0 run to close the half, and led 50-41.

While some of the wins for FSU have been special - an overtime win at home in 2004 along with two ACC Tournament wins, including the 2012 championship game - they have been few and far between.

Even so, FSU battled back thanks to strong three-point shooting from Jonathan Isaac, Bacon and PJ Savoy.

"They told me to just play", Childress said of his contributions.

After winning 12 straight, Florida State will look to avoid its first losing streak of the season as the Seminoles return home to face the last remaining team undefeated in ACC play in Notre Dame.

North Carolina Tar Heels freshman center Tony Bradley (concussion) will not play on Saturday versus the Florida State Seminoles, according to Jon Rothstein of. The Seminoles, who trailed by 11 points on three separate occasions during the second half, trailed by three with eight minutes to play, and by four with about 5½ minutes remaining. Pinson again failed to knock down a bucket in UNC's next game against Wake Forest, so the junior swingman entered Saturday's matchup against No. 9 Florida State with zero field goals to his name this season. He was fouled in the lane and his head appeared to strike the court hard as he fell.

Some key games that could sway the ACC standings that you should look out for are Florida State at North Carolina on January 14, Virginia at Notre Dame on January 24, North Carolina at Duke on February 9 and Notre Dame at Louisville on March 4. This was Florida State's fourth consecutive game against a nationally ranked opponent, with the next two also likely against Top 25 foes.

And then there was Wednesday night.
