Aug. 16, 1999
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State has released the Seminoles’ 1999-2000 women’s basketball schedule, which features two in-season tournaments, the Tallahassee Democrat Seminole Classic and the FIU Fun in the Sun Tournament, and a trip to the windy city of Chicago, Illinois.
The Seminoles will have the opportunity to play nine teams that participated in the NCAA Tournament last season. In addition to the five ACC schools (Clemson, Duke (national finalist), North Carolina, NC State and Virginia) that advanced to postseason play, SEC-powers Auburn and Florida will each make a trip to Tallahassee while FSU could face Xavier and Florida International in tournament play.
FSU Head Coach Sue Semrau enters her third season at the helm of the Seminole program with eight returning letterwinners and the country’s #8-ranked recruiting class. Co-captain Latavia Coleman, who was averaging an ACC-leading 20.8 points before suffering a season-ending injury last season, is set to return for her senior season along with junior co-captain Brooke Wyckoff, who again spent her summer with USA Basketball, this time as a member of the USA Basketball World University Games team. The duo will serve as leaders for a young, but talented group of Seminoles in 1999-2000.
The team’s television schedule will be released in the coming weeks.
