The Opening Tip (What You Need To Know):
Seminoles Move On To NCAA Second Round To Face No. 3 Seed Oklahoma State
Coming off its fourth-straight NCAA Tournament first round victory, the Florida State women’s basketball team is a game away from its second Sweet 16 appearance in a row. FSU opened the tournament by taking down the No. 6 seed Ohio State, 60-49. Standing in front of the 11th-seeded Seminoles (19-13) is the No. 3 seed in the New Orleans Regional Oklahoma State. The Cowgirls (26-7), ranked 13th in the AP Poll, advanced to the second round by beating East Tennessee State, 85-73. The two teams tip off at the Wells Fargo Center in Des Moines, Iowa, on Monday (March 24) at 6 p.m. (CST). The game can be heard on 1270AM and Seminoles.com. It will be broadcast on ESPN2.
Florida State Seeking Second-Straight Sweet 16
A win over Oklahoma State would put the Seminoles in the Sweet 16 for the second year in a row. Last season Florida State took down the No. 2 seed Stanford, 55-43, to move on to face LSU. It could be deja vu all over against for the Seminoles as the Tigers are in their regional once again. Florida State is 5-2 on a neutral court in the NCAA Tournament under Sue Semrau.
