Mills is averaging 13.3 points per game this season. He’s Florida State’s leading scorer on the year.
North Carolina started the game on an 18-0 run. Without Mills on the court, things collapsed quickly for the Seminoles. North Carolina led by 38 points at the half.
Florida State has now lost six straight games since defeating Duke in overtime on Jan. 18. The Seminoles have collapsed after starting the season with a 6-2 record in ACC play.
In addition to potentially losing Mills, Florida State is playing without star forward Malik Osborne. He had season-ending surgery in late January.
Florida State hosts Clemson at 7:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
