TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Fourteen years since leading the sixth-ranked Seminoles to a 25-10 record and a spot in the 1992-93 NCAA Elite Eight, Bob Sura will finally see his jersey raised to the rafters of the Donald L. Tucker Center in honor of his accomplishments on Feb. 24.
Sura, who wore the No. 3 jersey for the Seminoles from 1992 to 1995, managed to set and break almost every school and ACC record during his career. Most notably, Sura leads Florida State’s 1,000-point club with the school’s all-time scoring record of 2,130 total points.
The former Seminole also holds the record for career field goals made (731); career field goals attempted (1,626) and steals in one game (9). He ranks second in career three-point field goals made (214), career three-point field goals attempted (640), career free throws made (454) and career free throw attempts (696).
Sura, who has spent the last twelve years in the NBA, is a member of the 500-rebound club at Florida State as well. In the 119 games he played, he had a field-goal percentage of .450 (731-1,626) and a freethrow percentage of .652 (454-696).
Sura and First Team Mitsubishi of Tallahassee will host the Bob Sura Experience at the NC State game as his special guest. One lucky winner will attend the game with VIP treatment — including a pre-game meal with Sura, a private tour of FSU’s elite Basketball Training Center, a courtside seat for the jersey retirement ceremony, on-court recognition with Sura and various Seminole Basketball prizes.
Though he currently wears the No. 3 jersey for the Houston Rockets, Sura will always be remembered for his accomplishments as No. 3 for Florida State. His jersey will be enshrined in the Tucker Center along with the memory of his stellar career for the garnet and gold.
