TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – For the second consecutive season, the Florida State Women’s Basketball team has a chance to host the NCAA First and Second Rounds.

While the NCAA Selection Show begins at 7 p.m. on ESPN, interested attendees can enter the Tucker Center at 6:30 p.m. and be entertained by a host of activities. The event is once again free and open to the public, and there will be free popcorn as well as other giveaways for those in attendance. FSU head coach Sue Semrau and her student-athletes will also address the audience, and there will be appearances from Seminole Sound and FSU Cheer.
The Seminoles enter the NCAA postseason with a 23-7 overall record and finished 13-3 in ACC play, their second-most conference wins in program history. Florida State is looking to host the NCAA First and Second Rounds for the second consecutive year.

Fans interested in attending the NCAA Selection Show Watch Party can enter through the Northwest entrance of the Donald L. Tucker Center. Balloons will be outside to indicate the entrance area.
Where do I sit?
