After being out since October with a foot injury suffered in practice, it was announced by Leonard Hamilton that Phil Cofer returned to practice today and will suit up against UConn this weekend. The news was first reported by Jon Rothstein:

While Cofer is back at practice and will dress against the Huskies, there are no guarantees the fifth-year senior will see any action.

The Seminoles will be favored to win either way, and with four games remaining before ACC play begins, there’s plenty of time for Cofer to knock the rust off without rushing him back.

At 7-1, Florida State is off to a hot start, so the return of last year’s scoring and minutes leader can only serve them well—especially considering the gauntlet of a schedule awaits the ’Noles.

Florida State takes on Connecticut Saturday at 6:30 pm ET in Newark, NJ. As always, we’ll have you covered with how to watch and a game thread before tip-off.
