TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – The momentum is building. The days are getting closer. Tip-off is on November 5. But the time is now: You need to GET IN.
Florida State Women’s Basketball has built a firm base in Tallahassee. The foundation was laid on June 13, 1997, when head coach Sue Semrau stepped to the podium microphone and claimed that a program that once sat in the ACC basement was destined for great things.
Many of those great things have come. But greater things are still on the horizon. That’s why now is a better time than ever to GET IN.
“GET IN is the perfect theme for our season,” FSU head coach Sue Semrau said. “Together, we have all helped build this program into one of the nation’s best. But it doesn’t stop here. We want our community and fans to GET IN with us this season: GET IN your seat, be loud, engage with us in the community and show support everywhere for Florida State Women’s Basketball. There’s never been a better time to GET IN.”
The 2019-20 moniker has a variety of meanings: We want our fans to GET IN and spread the love of our program everywhere. We want our community to GET IN and engage with us. And we want the Donald L. Tucker Center at a fever pitch for every game, creating one of the best women’s hoops atmospheres across the country.
The hours. The sacrifice. Everything our coaches and student-athletes have put into this program over the years has helped get us to where we are today: A perennial Top 10 program with high expectations once again. The success we’ve attained and those greater things on the horizon…Well, we want YOU to be in with us every step of the way.
Our program has knocked on the NCAA Final Four Door three times over the last decade. We’ve won nearly 78 percent of our ACC games over the last five years. Winning double-digit games against conference foes has almost become a rite of passage for this program.
And this year, the potential for another special season is at its peak. It’s a rarity to return every single player on your roster from the season before, and yet here we are. This season will be an exciting journey. It will be a test of how heavy we can bench press the weight of expectations. To get those extra reps up, we’ll need help from the entire Tallahassee community and Florida State Women’s Basketball fan base.
As we approach another exciting year, come along for the ride. Stay with us every step of the way. Get behind us. Get beside us. Stick with us.
Better yet, GET IN.
