Florida State sophomore guard Dwayne Bacon went through a lot as a member of last year’s team. He averaged a team-leading 15.8 points per game and showed promise but the Seminoles, carried heavily by Bacon and fellow true freshman Malik Beasley, finished below .500 in ACC play and missed the NCAA Tournament for the fourth straight year.

Beasley may be on to the NBA but Bacon is back and has already seen improvement on this year’s team in one major aspect.

“We’ve got some great chemistry this year,” Bacon said. “For some reason, I feel like it’s a lot better than it was last year. With the new guys coming right in and helping us right away, I didn’t think the chemistry would just be right on and they’ve proved me wrong.”

Personally, Bacon spent the offseason revamping his shot, breaking it down and rebuilding it after receiving advice from the Florida State coaching staff.

“I just really changed the mechanics [of my shot] and put in the work to improve it,” Bacon said.
