Seminoles 2014-15 basketball primer: Trip to NCAA tournament main goal

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.

Florida State seeks NIT title to help kick-start next season

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. Florida State...

Seminoles save their best for March

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.
