But if you ask veteran FSU coach Leonard Hamilton and his players, their episodes of constructive criticism truly banded the Seminoles together.
Florida State ranks 17th in blocks per game (5.2) while Gonzaga ranks 100th (3.7).
Junior guard Cierra Dillard had 22 points, seven rebounds and three steals and 11th-seeded Buffalo reached the Sweet 16 for the first time in school history with a convincing 86-65 victory over third-seeded Florida State on Monday in second-round NCAA Tournament Albany Region play at Tallahassee, Fla.
FSU will face 4-seed Gonzaga on Thursday at 9:47 PM on TBS. "No words can describe it".

Leeds City Council said gritters had been treating roads overnight and road crews were mobilised to clear drifting on high routes. Met Office meteorologist Mark Wilson said: "The best way to describe this is as a real return to wintry conditions".
Xavier didn't have much trouble with the Seminoles ahead of their final run. Angola's 3 on the other end was off and Christ Koumadje was called for an offensive foul on Bluiett - the replay didn't show much contact at all - and the Xavier senior made both free throws on the other end to give Xavier a 34-32 lead at the break. The Bulldogs took a 67-60 win in the lone previous meeting, which was an 8/9 matchup in the first round of the 2010 NCAA Tournament at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo on March 19, 2010. The coach had to separate Savoy and senior guard Braian Angola, who were arguing after a miscommunication on the court. The Seminoles are connecting on eight three pointers a night while shooting 35.3 percent from three point range. "We're going to the Sweet 16 and to be a mid-major".
Junior leading scorer Terance Mann, who decided just minutes before tipoff he wanted to join his teammates instead of sitting on the bench with a groin injury, drove down the left side of the lane for a layup.
Some effort, however, reveals the answer: sophomore guard Trent Forrest.
During their last five games, the Bulldogs have scored an average of 80.6 points per game (3.6 below their season average) and allowed an average of 66.2 points per game (1.3 below their season average). On its next one after that, which began with 21 seconds left and a three-point deficit, Kerem Kanter's attempt at a three-point shot from the top seemed to graze the front of the net.

President Donald Trump signed proclamations on March 8 for a 25% tariff on steel and a 10% levy on aluminum , effective March 23. The United States yesterday launched a trade dispute with India at the World Trade Organization over export subsidies.
And Savoy's 3-pointer helped FSU avenge a 25-point loss to Xavier during last year's NCAA Tournament. "I can't say we were much better than Xavier, but we were much better than Xavier in the last two and a half minutes of the game".
"The challenge that we faced past year was a time of learning and growing", Hamilton said. Gonzaga is good at the charity stripe as they convert 71 percent of their chances this season. And to be able to come back and knock them out, as a No. 1 seed, it means a lot to us.
Unlike last year's beatdown in Orlando, the Florida State Seminoles hung with Xavier for most of the game on Sunday night.
"What you see happening in college basketball, it's nearly like a revolution", Florida coach Leonard Hamilton said. They would lead by as many as 14 early in the fourth quarter.
