Recruiting update


Leonard Hamilton  has always played with a deep bench. It's not unusual for 11 guys to play in the 1st half of a basketball game, as he looks for matchups and combinations he likes on any...

NCAA releases latest basketball attendance numbers


The NCAA released attendance data for the 2013-14 basketball season today. Florida State drew an average of 6,285 fans, which is the lowest since the 2001-02 campaign that saw Steve Robinson's last...

Kiel Turpin granted 6th year


Last season ended on April 7th when the Connecticut Huskies won their 4th national title.  FSU's season ended six days earlier, and during that season senior center Kiel Turpin played zero minutes...

Noles land top 150 Power Forward


Defensive rebounding has been a struggle since Bernard James and company graduated. Last year the Noles were 329th, and the year before they were 330th. So when Okaro White - FSU's most consistent...

May Day Hoops Update


May Day Hoops Update

Season ends in overtime


FSU entered the game shooting lights out from the arc, making 59% of their 3s in the NIT. But FSU was the best 3-pt shooting team in the ACC, so the numbers weren't all that unexpected. Minnesota,...

FSU vs Minnesota in Madison Square Garden


When FSU and Minnesota matched up on December 3rd the game was brutal. The refs were still figuring out the new rules, and they completely destroyed this game. Here's a part of what I wrote in the...

Inside the box score: FSU 78, LA Tech 75


1. The FSU defense limited Louisiana Tech to just 19-49 (39.6%) shooting on 2-pointers, and 7-25 (28%) shooting on 3-pointers. That adds up to a 40.4 eFG%, which was the Bulldogs 3rd lowest of...

Going to New York City


In the preview we noted that this game wouldn't look anything like the FSU-Georgetown game that everyone loved. Playing LA Tech is like shaking up a bees nest and then spending 40 minutes trying to...

FSU vs Louisiana Tech - winner goes to New York


For the final time as Noles, Okaro White, Ian Miller, and Robert Gilchrist will take the floor in Tallahassee. Miller and White, following on the heels of the big senior class from two years ago,...

Noles advance behind offensive explosion


The NIT has been a tale of two teams. Against Florida Gulf Coast FSU really struggled without Ian Miller, and needed a grinding, defensive effort to advance. Tonight, with Ian Miller ready to...

FSU hosts Georgetown in the NIT


Tonight's game will be Okaro White's 137th at FSU, pushing him past Luke Loucks for the most games ever played in a Seminole uniform

Q&A with Casual Hoya


It's the NIT ladies, feel the excitement! In preparation for tomorrow's matchup with Georgetown, we sat down with Andrew Geiger from Casual Hoya. You can find mine and Matt's answers to his...


NCAA Tournament open thread

We've had a few requests for a tourney thread, so here you go. Go Pitt!

Short-handed Noles advance


With Ian Miller in street clothes after suffering a turf toe injury (which is fitting, considering the touchdown saving tackle that caused it) and Michael Ojo battling a knee issue, Coach Hamilton...

Florida State vs Florida Gulf Coast


This season has been defined so far by the fate of Ian Miller's foot. He hurt it early in the 2nd Clemson game, and FSU struggled with him out of the lineup as the Tigers held FSU to a season low...

FSU hosts Dunk City


Selection Sunday didn't go well for FSU, who fell to 70th in a 68-team field after the loss to Virginia. But, this is college sports, so there are still post-season games to be played. The Noles...

UVA (most likely) ends FSU's tourney run


This game couldn't have gotten off to a better start, with the Noles scoring the first four points and then taking a 9-5 lead just over five minutes into the game. But the play of the game happened...

Florida State vs No. 6 Virginia


When these two teams met just after the New Year the Hoos were coming off a 35-point beatdown at the hands of Tennessee. But they handled FSU easily, and offered the first sign that their lofty...

Noles win at the buzzer


For one more day, at least, FSU's tourney hopes are alive.

FSU faces Maryland in ACC tourney


FSU and Maryland open the 2nd day of the ACC tournament with a noon tip on ESPN

Ian Miller, Okaro White win All-ACC Honors


When the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA) announced their awards this morning FSU players were pretty much shut out. Aaron Thomas, who was 11th in the conference in scoring and...

No magic on senior day


Only once in Leonard Hamilton's tenure had FSU lost on senior day, but at a time when the Noles most needed a win, they failed to deliver. The No. 7 ranked Syracuse Orange were healthy for the...

FSU looks for 4th straight win


It's senior day for Okaro White, Ian Miller, Robert Gilchrist, and Kiel Turpin

Survive and advance


The bubble has been uncharacteristically strong of late, with marginal NCAAT teams winning every game and top-4 seeds falling like the Sierra Nevada Nooner I dropped onto my garage floor just...

FSU faces BC with tourney hopes on the line


Like Sunday, there's only one bubble game that really matters today: Florida State. But getting into the dance isn't as simple as winning 20 games, or beating Syracuse. Unless FSU wins out the...

FSU adds to the 2014 hoops class


FSU signed four players in the early signing period -  but it is unclear if Norbertas Giga from Lithuania will actually make it to Florida State - and considering how much the staff was still...

Convincing win keeps tourney hopes alive


The Noles didn't get much bubble help this weekend, but tonight they got the chance to make a little luck of their own. With most of the bubble teams winning this weekend, FSU absolutely had to...

Georgia Tech preview, and Sunday's bubble watch


Bring your baseball ticket stub and get into the game for $10

Saturday's bubble: Who to hate?


The bubble has not been kind to FSU for two straight nights as Oregon and Providence have both won big road games against short-handed teams. Still, the Noles are in Bracket Matrix's first four...
