FSU basketball rises in one poll, holds steady in another

Moving’ on up.

NCAA Basketball: Florida at Florida State Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports

Florida State hasn’t seen a lot of action so far in the young 2018-2019 season, but it’s heading in the right direction, at least according to one poll. Following a 2-0 start that included comfortable wins over Florida and Tulane, the Seminoles have risen from 15th to 13th in the Coaches Poll, while remaining at No. 14 in the AP Poll.

The ’Noles are one of six ACC teams ranked in each poll, and the only team from the Sunshine State. FSU could face its first ranked team as early as this weekend, when it will take part in the AdvoCare Invitational in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. LSU, ranked 21st in the Coaches Poll and 19th in the AP, is also in the field. And the Seminoles will host Purdue as part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge next Wednesday. The Boilermakers are presently 19th in the Coaches Poll and 24th in the AP.

So while no ranked team has played as few games as the ’Noles (as of publication), we’ll know a good deal more about this team within the next 10 days. FSU faces Canisius tonight at 7 in Tallahassee.
