(SNO) — Florida State senior guard Terance Mann wore two different numbers in Saturday’s matchup against Connecticut in the Never Forget Tribute Classic, and delivered in both.
Mann propelled the 11th-ranked Seminoles (8-1) to a 79-71 victory over the Huskies (7-3), in a game that saw him wear his recognizable No. 14 jersey in the first half, and switch to No. 41 after it was ripped.
The Lowell, Mass. native, both of whose parents are from Saint Lucia, provided a veteran steady hand throughout a physical contest, finishing with 20 points and nine rebounds, with 16 points and six rebounds coming in the second half.
It was the Seminoles’ first win over the Huskies since the 1997-1998 season.
With 17:26 remaining, Mann drew a shooting foul in the paint, connecting on both free throws. His second free throw was his 1,000th career point; the 47th player in school history to reach the landmark.
“It’s definitely cool to be a part of that group,” Mann said. “Just to see everything come together, I’m so thankful. God really blessed me with this opportunity.”
