Welcome back to Tomahawk Nation’s Triple-S, where we will attempt to give you all the latest results and news from all the Florida State Seminoles sports that don’t begin with “foot.”

If you missed last weeks Triple S recap of all the Seminole sports, you can find it here.

This week:

  • The men’s basketball team (12-8, 6-3 ACC) lost yesterday’s game against the Tar Heels. On the bright side, their record so far in 2024 is 6-2, but those 2 losses have happened in 2 of their last 3 games.
  • The Florida State Women’s basketball team (14-7, 5-4 ACC) is in Atlanta for today’s game against Georgia Tech where they will attempt to snap their current 3 game losing streak.
  • Brian Pellerin and Gwyn Rhodes of the Seminole Softball Wrap Podcast wrap up their pre-season previews with a look at the Seminoles’ roster as they head into 2024.
  • The Seminole Track and Field, Swimming and Diving, and Tennis programs seasons are underway, and Golf will start playing next Saturday Febuary 3rd.
