November 2, 1998
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The 1998-99 Florida State women’s basketball team will kick off the season this week when the Seminoles host the Mexican National Team in exhibition action on Tuesday, November 3rd at 5 p.m. at the Leon County Civic Center.
The Seminoles, picked to finish sixth in the Atlantic Coast Conference preseason poll, return seven letterwinners and three starters from last year’s 9-18 squad. ACC returning leading scorer junior forward Latavia Coleman (17.7 ppg), a second-team all-ACC performer last year, senior point guard Jen Robinson (3.7 apg) and sophomore standout forward Brooke Wyckoff (9.9 ppg, 8.0 blocks) headline the young Seminoles. Second-year Head Coach Sue Semrau also welcomes four newcomers, Lea Bennett (6-3, C), Lakesha Springle (5-3, G), Angela Sutton (5-10, G), April Traylor (5-10, G) and redshirt returnee Tamara Gracey (Sr., 6-0, F) to the team.
The 5 p.m. game time is a change from FSU’s regular schedule as the Florida State volleyball team will take on Florida at 7 p.m. on Tuesday at Tully Gym.
