Stats this season
Reigning ACC Defensive Player of the Year
As you know, the Florida State Men's Basketball team are making a lot of noise this season! Sitting with an overall record of 15-5, the FSU hoop team is now #1 in the ACC (5-1). Recently coming off the biggest upset of the year (Beating #1 Duke, 66-61), they are using that momentum and coming at teams full speed. Since then, Florida State has also beat NC State, Miami, and they just handled Boston College in a 67-51 victory as well. Trust me, this team's success isn't a "fluke". They are #9 in the country when it comes to team rebounding each game (40.8rpg).
What was it like beating previously #1 ranked Duke?
"It was a great feeling. I knew we could do it if we just believed and knew that we could as a team, and have confidence in ourselves."
How does it feel to be #1 in the ACC right now?"I knew we could hold this spot, but we just had to believe in ourselves and buy into what the coaches have been telling us and be unified as a team."
As the leader of the Florida State team, what are your overall thoughts on the season so far?"I feel we have underachieved, but we have turned things around and are headed in the right direction. We control our own destiny."
What are some of the goals that the FSU Men's Basketball team has for this season?
"We are hoping and striving to be the best team in the ACC. We are also trying to win a championship this season and push this program to the next level!"
I've been trying to tell people about this team for the past couple YEARS... So, here's your chance to hop on the bandwagon! Florida State plays Jan 29th at 12pm EST vs. Clemson as well as Feb 1st at 7pm EST vs. Wake Forest, make sure you check them out and start rooting for the Noles!
