Hours before Florida State’s defending national champion football team takes the field against rival Miami, the Seminoles’ men’s basketball team will be opening the 2014-15 season at home against defending MAAC champion, Manhattan.
The Seminoles are coming off of a 22-14 campaign which culminated in an overtime loss to Minnesota in the NIT semifinals. Florida State is losing...
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Florida State men's basketball team heads into the 2014-15 season looking to improve on a 2013 campaign that saw the Seminoles finish 22-14.
The 22 wins, however, were not enough to make the NCAA tournament and the Seminoles ended up in their second straight NIT. Florida State advanced to the NIT's final four where they lost to the Minnesota Golden Gophers...
It’ll be another two weeks before Florida State takes the floor for its first meaningful game of the 2014-15 season, but it appears that experts are expecting Florida State to be in a familiar place — on the bubble.
After reaching the NCAA with relative ease in four straight seasons from 2009-12, the Seminoles have been forced to settle for the NIT in each of the last two seasons...
It was yet another winning campaign for the Florida State men’s basketball program during the 2013-14 season, but as has been the case so often in head coach Leonard Hamilton’s tenure, the Seminoles were left just on the outside of the field of 68 on Selection Sunday. Florida State will lose two of its top three scorers next season, but still looks to have the talent to make...
Florida State finished with 22 wins in Leonard Hamilton’s 12th season in Tallahassee and the Seminoles should be optimistic that the 2014-15 season is even better. Hamilton has helped bring Florida State basketball back to respectability while leading FSU to four NCAA Tournament appearances and its only ACC title. While Tallahassee hasn’t exactly been a NBA breeding ground, Hamilton...
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Success in the NIT isn't exactly something that you put on your resume.
Not making the NCAA tournament, but then piecing together a winning streak in the NIT, is a small consolation to a basketball team's season. Florida State players would probably trade their NIT success for a spot in the Big Dance, even if they were given a No. 15 or 16 seed.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State has saved its best basketball for late March.
Unfortunately, it was in a Monday night NIT game and not a Sunday night NCAA Tournament game. But impressive, regardless.
Devon Bookert, for a long stretch, couldn't miss a shot and was spot on with his passes on what was a career-high 21-point night. Aaron Thomas made 8 of 10 shots and had 26 points...

Florida State: 67 Maryland: 65
Maryland wasn’t going down without a fight, none the less, the Terps’ second round game against Florida State would serve as their ACC swan song. These two went right down to the wire, before Seminoles’ Boris Bojanozky took a bounce pass from Okaro White and slammed the ball home with 00.4 seconds remaining, giving FSU a 67-65 final lead.
The madness has begun. So far this Thursday, we’ve already seen a buzzer-beater from Seton Hall’s Sterling Gibbs to knock off Big East No. 1 seed Villanova. Just minutes later, we’ve got another game-winner in the final seconds. Florida State, which absolutely needed to score a win against Maryland to have a shot at reaching the NCAA Tournament, knocked off the Terrapins on...

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- For all the squandered chances, Florida State has one more chance to make an impression this week at the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament.
There's nothing that can be done about the home losses to Clemson and Miami. Or North Carolina's comeback win over Florida State at home. Or T.J. Warren's 30 points that led to a four-point North Carolina State win in...

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Okaro White has willed Florida State to wins the past few weeks, closing out his college career with his best stretch of basketball.
In his final home regular-season game, White tried yet again. Hustling, rebounding, taking smart shots.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton didn't want to say it but he voluntarily admitted that the Seminoles were in a "must" situation on Sunday night.

Florida State delivered.
