Florida State (20-8, 9-4 ACC) and Wake Forest (9-18, 0-13 ACC) square off in women’s basketball action for the only time this season in the final regular-season game for both teams Sunday, February 25th at 3 p.m. at Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem, N.C.
If the Seminoles are victorious over the Demon Deacons, FSU will finish the ACC season 10-4 for the second straight season and could match its best finish in league play with a tie for 3rd place.
“Having the opportunity to tie our highest conference finish ever with one senior would be a great accomplishment,” Florida State head coach Sue Semrau said. “We are not looking ahead but we are working to finish strong.”
FSU has a 16-14 edge in the series with Wake Forest and has won seven straight over the Deacs. The series began in 1991-92 when FSU joined the ACC. Semrau is 12-4 vs. Wake Forest. In her first season, Semrau led the Seminoles to a sweep of the Deacons and has now done it three times.
For the first time in program history, Florida State earned 20 wins for the third straight season with its 12-point victory over Clemson Thursday night. The Seminoles have now won 10 straight games over the Tigers, which are the most consecutive victories over any league team for FSU.
With the win over Clemson, FSU secured at least a fifth seed in the ACC Tournament. With victories this weekend, there could be a three-way tie for third place in the ACC between Florida State, Maryland and NC State but the Terps would be seeded third, the Wolfpack fourth and the Seminoles fifth. Including this season, FSU has been seeded no lower than 5th in the ACC Tournament six straight seasons and seven of the last eight seasons.
