TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Florida State University senior guard Tim Pickett, who earned All-ACC First Team honors and who leads the ACC in 3-point field goals made and steals, has earned All-America Honorable Mention honors from the Associated Press. Pickett averaged 16.5 points, 2.5 steals and made 110 3-point shots this season as he led the Seminoles to a 19-14 record an appearance in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament.
Pickett is the first Seminole to earn All-America Honorable Mention accolades since Bob Sura earned the honor following both the 1993-94 and 1994-95 seasons.
Pickett is scheduled to earn his bachelor’s degree in sociology in April.
Pickett led the Seminoles in scoring (16.5 ppg), steals (2.5 spg), and 3-point field goals made (110) while ranking second in rebounds (4.5) this season.
