For the past several seasons the Florida State basketball team has been transitioning from a twin-post offense to a positionless system. With the graduation of 5th year senior Michael Ojo following last season, that roster transformation is complete. A summer trip to Jamaica provides the first glimpse at the new team.

Every four years teams get to take a foreign trip during summer practice. This provides 10 extra practice sessions before the trip, as well as the games and added practice while overseas. The Seminoles traveled to Jamaica on Saturday, and play the first of three games on Thursday.

They’ll play the Jamaican Select team twice (on the 10th and 14th), and for the third game will face the Under-21 National Team on August 16th.

The games will not be broadcast.

The FSU coaches will get their first look at the lineup combination possibilities for the ‘Noles. The Seminoles return just seven scholarship players from last year’s 3rd place ACC team.
