TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The complete 2012-13 schedules for both the men’s and women’s basketball programs were released Thursday afternoon and there’s a shared theme for Leonard Hamilton’s and Sue Semrau’s programs.
Both ‘Noles teams play a host of talented regular-season opponents on their respective journeys to March. Thirteen of the men’s team’s 30 games are against opponents that competed in some form of postseason play last year and the women’s squad will play 18 of its 30 games against WNIT and NCAA Tournament participants from a season ago.
Semrau’s squad starts the year by hosting Samford before rival Florida and Iowa come to Tallahassee in advance of Atlantic Coast Conference play. The women’s team also plays at Nebraska and in San Juan, Puerto Rico against Vanderbilt early in the season.
Hamilton’s team opens its ACC Championship defense with two home games, a tournament in Brooklyn, N.Y. and then a six-game stretch of home contests in November and December, including matchups against Minnesota and Florida.
Every ACC home game — men’s and women’s — will air live on an ESPN Network or a regional affiliate.
Season tickets are available for both teams now. Call 1-888-FSU-NOLE to secure seats today or click here to visit the official online ticket page.
