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.
