The Florida State Seminoles stormed through the ACC tournament last season to claim the conference crown. The Seminoles won the league title by knocking off ACC powerhouses Duke and North Carolina. FSU was bounced by the Cincinnati Bearcats in the NCAA tournament and now are looking to take another step forward this year. The ‘Noles will be gunning for their fifth consecutive invitation to the Big Dance.
Florida State’s biggest question mark will be on the block. The Seminoles lose center Bernard James and will have to lean on unproven commodities down low. Florida State has three players on their roster over seven feet tall who have not played in a Division I basketball game in their careers. The Seminoles also need to hang on to the basketball, as they ranked 323rd in turnover percentage last season.
Florida State opens their season tomorrow against South Alabama in Tallahassee.
