TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
The annual Florida State men’s basketball preview show premiers Nov. 11 at 7:00 p.m. on SunSports Television and on Nov. 13 at 5:00 p.m. on FoxSports Florida. The 30 minute show featuring Seminole head coach Leonard Hamilton and each member of this year’s team is scheduled to run nine times in the next two weeks.
The annual preview show is a prelude to one of the most anticipated seasons of the Florida State basketball team in recent years. The Seminoles return eight of their top 10 scorers from their 2009 team which played in the NCAA Tournament and in the ACC Tournament championship game for the first time in school history. Florida State finished with a 25-10 record and a fourth place finish in the ACC standings.
The Seminoles are led by Solomon Alabi – a candidate for both the Wooden and Naismith Awards as the nation’s top collegiate player. Alabi earned All-ACC Freshmen and All-ACC Defensive team honors as he became only the seventh freshman in ACC history to lead the league in blocked shots. Also returning to the Seminoles’ starting line-up are sophomore forward Chris Singleton, who earned Freshmen All-America Honorable Mention honors, and Derwin Kitchen, who is expected to be one of the top point guards in the ACC this season.
The premier of the annual preview show comes only five days before Florida State’s season opener against Jacksonville. The Seminoles play host to the Dolphins on Nov. 16 at 7:00 p.m. at the Donald L. Tucker Center in Tallahassee. Season Tickets start at $256 — saving you more than 10% off face value. Order today at Seminoles.com or call 888-FSU-NOLE.
