Welcome to The Sports Bank’s second annual college basketball season preview series. Last year we looked at 99 teams in 99 days. This year, we are being slightly more aggressive and expanding to 111 teams in 111 days. We will rank the 74 power conference teams and top 37 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order. We’ll break down rosters, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.
Defense, size, and physicality; that has been the name of the game for the Florida State Seminoles the past few seasons and will once again be the case for the 2011-2012. The ‘Noles are not at the level of North Carolina or Duke, but are certainly a class above the rest in the ACC.
FLORIDA STATE SEMINOLES
Last Season: 3rd, 11-5 in ACC, 23-11 overall
