Dear Seminoles fan,
Go Garnet At Men’s Basketball Tuesday Against Virginia
Seminoles named national team of the week by ESPN’s Andy Katz
Coach Leonard Hamilton and the #25 Florida State Seminoles want you to Go Garnet against the Virginia Cavaliers Tuesday night at the Tucker Center. The Seminoles’ head coach is encouraging all fans to show their support for the basketball team by wearing their garnet colors when they come to the game on Tuesday. The Seminoles have won two straight ACC games and are one of the nation’s hottest teams entering the second half of the ACC season.
With its two come from behind victories last week, #25 Florida State was named the national team of the week by ESPN’s Andy Katz. Said Katz: “Florida State was a missed Ty Lawson 3-pointer away from going into overtime and possibly knocking off North Carolina at home on Jan. 28. The Seminoles had proven they were poised to make a run despite not being able to close out UNC. Last week, Florida State did what it had to in holding off a charging Georgia Tech at home, then coming back after trailing by 19 to win at Clemson. This was the same Clemson team that crushed Duke earlier in the week. Had Clemson won this game, it would have been hard to keep Clemson away from the tag of team of the week. But Florida State has positioned itself as a threat to finish in the top four in the ACC with a 5-3 record. And at 18-5 overall through Saturday, it could earn a berth in the NCAA tournament for the first time under head coach Leonard Hamilton. The Seminoles have four home and four away games left. All the road contests will be extremely difficult — the Noles will travel to Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Boston College and Duke. That’s why it was so critical to grab the win at Clemson. Protecting Tallahassee from Virginia, Miami, Clemson and Virginia Tech will be must-win games, too. The wins over Cincinnati, Cal and Florida earlier in the season were no fluke. This team has arrived as a credible threat to earn a bid.”
