FSU’s Men’s Basketball team entered their showdown against Duke at No. 8 in the standings, but there was still movement in KenPom and the NET rankings after last week.

Trent clearly hit Hurt’s flying elbow with his eye socket. Can’t do that. Good call— Basketball School (@MichaelRogner) February 11, 2020
But that doesn’t mean the Women’s Basketball team takes a backseat. Kiah Gillespie was named ESPN’s Player of the Week.
FSU’s Softball team is also #good:
A TomahawkNation Baseball roundtable looks to answer five questions about the upcoming season. You still have time to get up to speed on this team, who is also ranked, as we have our position previews and pitcher previews.
All of that adds up to a pretty special status:
