TALLAHASSE, Fla. –
Florida State senior Al Thornton is featured on the cover of the new Lindy’s College Basketball magazine. Thornton adds imagery to the magazine’s 2006-2007 preview edition which includes a front-cover headline reading: “‘Noles in ACC Hunt.”

Among other compliments, the magazine declares that Thornton, a returning starter at forward, is one of the `Noles’ key reasons for pre-season optimism. Writer Bob Thomas says, “Al Thornton is one of the nation’s emerging elite players.”

Thornton’s average 16.1 points and 6.9 rebounds from last season are cited as evidence of Florida State’s blossoming program. Says Thomas, “there is no shortage of optimism that the program is on the verge of a breakthrough.”
