Moments earlier Chris Singleton pumped faked getting his man in the air and drove the ball in along the right baseline for the slam dunk giving Florida State a 71-70 lead. Seven point nine seconds remained in overtime.  That is all that separated Florida State from their first appearance in the Elite Eight since 1993. […]

It’s not often you see a smiling Leonard Hamilton after a game even when it is a win. But after a near perfect performance Hamilton had plenty of reason to grin from ear to ear after Florida State manhandled Notre Dame all game long in beating the Fighting Irish 71-57 to reach their first Sweet […]

When the pairing of Florida State and Texas A&M, two teams noted much more for their defensive prowess than their offensive capabilities, was announced last Sunday, fans and pundits quipped that the first team to fifty would win the game. That proved to prophetic. With 2:28 left in the game, Bernard James swatted away B.J. […]

What looked to a dagger of a shot to Virginia Tech turned out instead to be a dagger to Florida State. Derwin Kitchen’s jumper from inside the arc along the right baseline was a millisecond too late leaving his finger tips. Instead of a game winning shot that saw the FSU bench rush to Kitchen […]

Florida State has been invited to the Big Dance aka the NCAA tournament. Well, not officially anyway. But after holding off North Carolina State, 72-62, getting that highly valued eleventh conference win, the Selection Sunday show next week will just be a formality. The only suspense for FSU will be what number seed and where […]

Over his three years facing Georgia, Sean Gilmartin has made a habit of owning the Bulldogs. Friday night was no different as Gilmartin recorded a career high 11 strikeouts allowing just one hit and no runs over his eight innings of work. However, as brilliant as Gilmartin was, Brandon Johnson and Daniel Bennett were the […]

Florida State got all the runs they needed in the third inning and then got stellar pitching from Daniel Bennett and Mike McGee to hold off #1 Florida 5-3. The Seminoles got their first hit of the game in the top of the third inning when Justin Gonzalez lined a single to center. Devon Travis […]

This season Florida State was 16-0 when leading at the half. And that trend looked like it would continue as the Seminoles thoroughly dominated the Miami Hurricanes over the first thirty minutes on both ends of the court. Then came the second thirty minutes. Leading by twenty points at intermission, 36-16, Florida State saw its […]

Too little offense and not enough defensive stops when the Seminoles needed them resulted in Leonard Hamilton’s seventh consecutive loss at Maryland, this time falling to the Terrapins 78-62. But more so was the lack of defense by FSU in allowing the Terps to shoot 52% with freshman Terrell Stoglin leading five Terrapins in double […]

The big question coming into Saturday’s game against Wake Forest was how Florida State would perform in its first game without the injured Chris Singleton. For the first 10:24 it appeared like the answer was not very well. The Seminoles had five turnovers, were 2 of 12 from the floor, and trailed the Deacs 14-6. […]
